I'm a HUGE Suikoden fan and it drives me nuts that there isn't enough SuikoCosplayers around here! XD I mean, there's 108+ characters in each game and there are 4 games in the series thus far. XD

This has been an idea of mine for a long time. I have put off posting about it since I worried that a few people would whine and complain about it not being fair that it's only for Suikoden costumes....

BUT TOO BAD FOR THEM! =D There will be other photoshoots for anyone and everyone to attend so I don't really care of some people whine about not being able to attend one.

Oh, and to possibly boost interest...^_~ http://www.suikosource.com/chars/list/ (doesn't include Suikoden 4 as of yet, though)

~ ~ ~

Date and Location!!

The Suikoden Photoshoot will take place on September 17th at High Park. If you need directions just ask.

When?

Meet at the main entrance at 1pm. =) The main entrance is on bloor street. http://www.city.toronto.on.ca/parks/highpark/map_highpark.pdf.pdf

Plans for the day

Hang out, take photos, be nerds and HAVE FUN! Maybe we'll all go out for dinner afterwards. ^_^ But we'll decide that on the day of and such.

Other info

Mekou is still hoping for a Riou and Jowy. ;__; Seriously, I'm willing to help anyone make a costume for this!!!! XD ...pwease? ;.;

Photographers

Photographers are more than welcome. =D

Um. That's all for now. ^___^ Come and enjoy!!

I always thought they also had pretty character designs~ So if I can find someone I can do, I'll probably join you :D Plus, for some time now, I wanted to make a game costume :D

[EDIT]: So far, from that link, my choices are:
- Sasuke
- Riou
- Futch
- Hix

The only inaccurate thing I can see when I do it is that I will use a black wig instead of a brown since that is what I have on hand at that time *coughcough* I wonder which version of the game they come from *wonders*

Yay Suikoden photoshoot. So long as I can arrange a ride up there I would most definately like to come. I don't know which of my costumes to wear though. I have Riou, Futch or Wakaba to choose from. On the one hand if I go as Futch I can bring Bright along he he. I would most likely be Futch or Wakaba though. Although I probably will make another Suikoden costume for AN 06 (Caesar) I will most likely not have that one ready for the photoshoot but I would wear one of my old ones for it.

Just checking in to see if people are still interested. =)

I've decided that instead of wearing Jillia EVER again, I'm going to make and wear Nanami. =) Fwah!

I've convinced a friend of mine to be Jowy. X3 And I /may/ have gotten someone to be Riou, but she won't be confimred for a couple months yet. =) I think she'd rather be Futch or Kinnison anyway. ;3

So anyone else ineterest? Should I confirm a date? o_o

The beginning of August or September seems to be the best time. (For me nayway. X_X There are so many things happening in July now, and the end of August is filled too. What time is good for everyone else? Give me your input!

I'll try to come. I work shifts, though, and I only get two weekends off each month. The free weekends for me over the summer are July 23-24, August 13-14 and September 18-19. I also have a smattering of weekdays off (my availability is MUCH better on weekdays), but I'm not sure what other people's availability would be like.

Mekou
07-12-2005, 04:38 AM
yeah, I'm still trying to get this off the ground. ><;;

It'll definately be held sometime in September, since that seems to be the best time. =)

But my question is, does it matter which day? Would people prefer it to be a weekend or weekday? Any dates in mind? I'm trying to be fair to everyone who's interested and try to choose the best date for everyone.

I have in mind, September 17th. If no one has reason for that to change, that'll be the date that I'll have the shoot.

And I haven't mentioned this yet, but photographers are welcome! =)

*ears perk* Photographers welcome ehhhhh???? (I dunno why my ears would perk if I READ that, but whatever XD)

Now I'm interested XD

Mekou
07-12-2005, 07:04 PM
XD Yay!

....;__;

Please...someone else be interested too. I feel like I'm just talking to myself. ><

Well...this may sound stupid....
but I've BARELY played those games...I think I might have played an hour of my friends....^_^;;;;;
I've seen a few ppl in there I'd LOVE to cosplay as!

Also I'm completely UP for Sept.17 that'd be GREAT!!!
Thats if its oki if I can come....

from that list I chose:
Sid (Chido Star)

but if I can't be him I'll be
Chaco (Tenkou Star)

Now the ONLY problem cosplaying as these two is the feet...
If I go no one can take a pic of my feet thats all...^,^;;;;;

Is it oki with everyone if I join along...If not I dun have ta go....

Kaido - OMG if you come as Sid or Chaco I'm going to love you forEVAR! ;~; Sid is the crazy winger who likes to frighten Chaco with spooky stories and it just very creepy overall. XD Chaco is the loud-mouthed winger who is just...loud. XD And steals all yuor money when you first meet him. 0__0!!

I don't care if people don't actually know the game. =D I can englightend you! (It' almost sounds like I'm trying to form a new religion. XD) It's an underappreciated series that should get more attention (At least Suikoden 1 and 2 should.)

Wakaba - Yeah, I know September isn't the best time conveinience wise, but it's the best time weather-wise and is after all the cosplay rush of August. But I wanted to get dates and things settled ASAP for a reason, so people have a looooonnnggg time to plan to have the day free.

Jo - *poke poke* Cliiiiiiiiiive! =D

Wakaba

Yeah I understand. As long as work and my studies permit I will do my best to make the 17th. I think I will probably be Futch.

Kaido, I have an idea for making the feet of Chaco or Sid. When I was a kid my mom crocheted slippers for me that looked like monster's feet complete with toes and claws. I don't know if you crochet or knit but maybe you could try something like that. They looked really good.

You've gotta enlighten me too then, I know nothing about... video games. Period. XD

Though i wanna come to take pictures~ (I need practice~)

C..CR....CROCHET?!?!!?!?! *deer caught in head lights expression*
Um......no......if your mommy could make me some...I'd pay her!!!!
I thnk I might be going as Chaco sounds a little bit more like me...loud mouth yes! *points to self* I have small bat wings like he does....if I went as sid my wings would be unproportional to scale....

but either one I have dibs on!!!

September 17 is fine with me, too. It's on one of my weekends off, so that's great! I'll bring Hai Yo out.

Wakaba
07-15-2005, 02:51 PM
Yay Hai Yo! You looked so awesome at AN this year! You even got his facial reactions down. It was so great!

Um Kaido I don't know if my Mom can make them for you. I would have to ask her first but she is pretty busy right now.

Edtel

Thanks! Now I just have to get off my butt and actually finish him. Maybe if I'm diligent tomorrow evening, I could wear him to NAF. But I'm not counting on that.

Just a reminder that the Suikoden photoshoot is on September 17th at High Park! =D

Photographers are welcome! ^___^

...and I still have 2 costumes people can borrow. <.< Tomo and Tir.

So who's all planning to come? ^_^

EDIT: I edited the first post will all the info I have. Please take a look!

Edtel
09-02-2005, 10:34 AM
I really, really want to come. However, they are planning on a platoon shuffle at work a mere week before the shoot, so I'm not sure if I'll have the day off after all. But I'll ask for lieu time and hope for the best.

EDIT: WHEW! Never mind. I'm not going anywhere, and still have the weekend off. I will be there. But...is there anywhere to change? I kinda...well, I'm too shy to wear my costume on public transit, so...

Well, there's bathrooms at the entrance but from past experience they're small, smelly and rather unpleasant. There is a restaurant closer in, but it's often quite crowded and is also small.

Where will you be coming from? Because if I can meet you someplace (like Union Station. It has nice big bathrooms!) I'll tag along with you in costume so you won't feel all alone. =D

~ ~ ~ ~

So far, the following people are confirmed as coming. ^^

Mekou-chan - Nanami
Edtel - Hai Yo
Jo_Canadian - Clive
Seed-chan - Photographer

Um....reminder to other people, I have two costumes that people can borrow, but I'll have to know ASAP so I can fix up minor things for the costumes that have bee sacrificed for newer costumes. ^^ I have Tir McDohl(Suikoden) and Tomo(Suikoden II)

Btw, does anyone know anyone else who has Suikoden costume? INVITE THEM TO THE PHOTOSHOOT! FEAR THE CAPS! RAAAWR! >=B

Okay, I'm done. <_<;

Is this happening, rain or shine? The forecast tomorrow says rain. Not that I'll mind all that much if it's just sort of a spitty rain. As long as it's not pouring.

Mekou
09-16-2005, 08:29 PM
Ah, yes tomorrow the photoshoot is still happening. =) According to the weather network, the rain is gonna be happening in the morning (40% chance of up to 1mm of rain) and the afternoon is just cloudy periods with only 10% chance of rain. =) So if it does rain, it'll just be spitty. And if it DOES get too bad, then we'll take sheltr someplace. And scare even more locals. XD

Heh...sounds fun. I'll be there, then. I've been looking forward to it. :)

I'm invading the photoshoot for the sake of invasion fun. I'll be a pseudo-photographer as I always have my camera on me, but never seems to get any use out of it. XD

Oh, I'd love to see pictures from this gathering... I'm a huge suikoden fan. And it's always great to see photos of groups, or situational photos. I want to see! ^_^
If you plan any later gatherings for major cons, and there's any chance of my going, I will happily participate. I have oodles of suikoden costumes... A Hero1, Hero2, Highland Jowy, Millie, Snowe, Reinbach, Vikki, and I might be forgetting some, I can't remember. Leelin is also underway. I always have something suikoden to wear!
