Hey!

I noticed that there were no forums for this particular anime convention, so, seeing as it's only a few months away, I thought I'd start up a thread at the very least!

Who all is planning to attend this one? I just looked up prices, and we've managed to convince our group to go! It's a great deal, especially for a four day convention! ^_^

So, who all plans to go, and what costumes do you intend to bring as well?

For me, I'll probably end up bringing the same ones that I'm bringing to the A-Kon, but it all depends on what the group decides. We'll probably bringing our Trigun group, and our Sailor Moon group, but as far as everything else...I'd like to bring our Lupin III group as well. ^_^

Yes, yes. I'm going. =D

Cosplaying as Yu-ki from Malice Mizer, just as I did at the Mini-Con in Tulsa (as I've noticed you went as well, and I even saw you!)

We're adding a new member to the group, Kami, who is also doing out costumes. xD It's gonna be great.

Hope to see you guys there. ^_^ I can NOT wait!

I might go. I plan on it, but the whole fact that I'm spending so much on A-Kon this year, I might not. Though, if I end up not going this year, it's a definate for next year.

If I go, I'll probably cosplay wolf and human Toboe. ^^

Ironically, a friend has just called me about that a few minutes ago to quote price for the room. It is planned for me! Costume wise, not totally sure what's coming, though here are some ideas: Dizzy should be fixed for then, plus i might have another outift for her. I'm urging myself to work on Shikamaru. Since a friend has Hawkeye planned, she wants me to be Edward for that, so he may come too. It's all in the air for now. Let's see what happens in the coming months!

I'm gunna try to go to AF instead of Oni-con this year. I just didn't think Oni-con was all that grand.

Rei will be taken again if I can fix it up. Dizzy too if I get the wings better. And Martel if I can get it done in time over the summer.

I'll be there in my (in-progress) Cardcaptor Sakura costume. Though I'm urging with myself whether or not to make the sword card, or the usual star wand. I might bring Festival Goer too, but it depends on the weather. I'm going to go Saturday and Sunday.

I actually think I might bring a costume I'm working on *not listed under the costume section* instead of Dizzy. And Martel, and another surprise costume. Whee for surprises.

But I still don't know if I'm going or not.

I'm planning on going as Gaara from Naruto. Hopefully I'll have figured out a way to stick my gourd on my back by then (and paint those seals on it).
I'm also palnning on getting an art table...as soon as I can find the sign up thing on AnimeFest's homepage.
And it's just kinda strange that this con doesn't have it's own forum D: Poor AnimeFest.
Well I'll see you guys there! Lookin forward to it! :D

Well Anime FEST pretty much takes place in a very big hallway, with some large rooms off to the sides. Only rather large cons get their own forums.

i'm planning on going too!!! I'm really not sure who I'm going to cosplay as yet though... except I'm sure I'll bring Kakashi and maybe make the young kakashi but please tell me there will be atleast one Gai sensei there ;____; who might wanna take pictures with me...?

I kinda lost track of one gai at a-kon but they seemed to be in a family group and I didn't wanna bother them any more than I did ^^; and the other gai was great but I was afraid I would annoy him but either way OO OMG I can't wait!

I won't be to another con until Labor day... LOTS of time to improve my costumes! Also, if my friend Aaron goes, I might go as Auron for a little while if I can get my damn costume repaired x.x

and... sorry I didn't bring him to A-Kon... I was ashamed at how much I needed to fix =_____= *hides*

I'll be there for AnimeFEST. Not as big as A-kon but still good. I know that AnimeFEST used to have their own forum on it's web site last year but it seems to have disappeared. I tried asking where they went but got no answer. Go figured.

Well I'm gonna sign up for an artbooth at AnimeFEST, finally found the link and whatnot on their site. Now I have to things I'd like to try and get together, so I'll just post them here.

Cosplay.com Meetings (or somethin similar)
Ok well at AnimeNEXT, the cosplay.com members tried to organize something that would help eachother recognize others as members of this site. Know what they did? They tied purple ribbons to their badges.
So I was thinking, maybe we could all try and do somethin similar. Choose a color ribbon or somethin and tie it to our badge (or whatever single day admissions get, I'm not sure if they get badges or not) and that way if we saw other people with a certain color ribbon or somethin we'd know they were from cosplay.com. This would help with givin or posting cosplay pictures and just recognizing other members in general.
Not sure if that sounds good to you guys or not so just tell me what you think :D Thanks!

Naruto Cosplay Gathering
Ok I'm not sure if I should post a sign up for this just on here or in the main "Others" forum since here's really no main AnimeFest forum to post other threads on. Well whatever I'll start it here and if it'd be easier to give it a thread of its own I will.
Anywho, my friends and I were a group of Naruto cosplayers at the last convention (though we sadly missed the gathering) so I decided we should start a gathering for this one as well (we being "me", haven't talked to them about it yet but I'm sure they'll be in the group since they're still cosplayin as Naruto). So basically, would other people out there be interested in meeting somewhere and getting together as one big group for Naruto cosplay?
So far my group consists of the following:
Gaara (me); TenTen (XariaWolf); Sasuke (not on this site); Kabuto (not on this site and his costume is in progress); and Ino (if we can get her into her outfit again).
As for photoshoots and whatnot, that'd probably be part of the whole gathering. If anyone who has previously headed gatherings would like to help me with this, send me a PM please!


So basically that's about it, as you can tell I'm tryin to be a bit more organized at this con simply 'cause it makes things alot easier.
Please reply (or PM me) with any input you have on either of the 2 topics I just wrote about.
Thanks and I can't wait to see you guys at AnimeFest!

Yay for AnimeFEST! I will definately be going along with the rest of my friends. I will be Sohma Kagura again just as A-kon last weekend. I just can't wait!! AnimeFEST is my favorite convention. They are so nice!

I'll be one of the people going with Tsuki Neko in our Fruits Basket group, and I will be going as Uo. AnimeFEST is also my favorite convention, even though its gotten bigger, it still has some of that close-knit/ small convention feel to it. We'll also be entering the cosplay contest which is always fun!

Anna
06-18-2005, 10:01 PM
Okay, I just lost my job, so I won't be able to finish Sakura in time. I'll be there in Psyciker Yuna instead (strangly I have everything to make it lying in the house. Cept' for some model magic and glass paint ) And I might only go one day now. Dunno' though I'll have to see if they'll hire me again. (Probably WILL seeing as i was the only person willing to watch that brat for $4 an hour!) But if they do beg me back, I'll have Psyciker and Sakura. So that's a plus!

P.S. Does anyone know how long of a walk it is from Union station to the entrance of the hotel?

I plan on being there as Chouji and Jiroubu from Naruto, Coop from Megas XLR, and Ward from Final Fantasy VIII. Hopefully i can get off work this time. I was supposed to be at Akon with those costumes.

Sounds good to me! I have extra christmas ribbon in my garage, I'll just pick a color and tie it on my badge when I get it!

Makare-- The cosplay.com ribbon idea sounds cool! I could so go for that. And purple would be the perfect color since that what the site's color is. I'm on board. Also, a Naruto gathering sounds great! I'll hopefully have Shikamaru done by then! :jjacks: Can't wait til AnimeFEST!! :bigtu:

geh!!! I'm really interested in the Naruto photoshoot! If you don't mind... I'm giong as Kakashi *i know I'm female and short =_= gomen...* do you think that would be okay? I was hoping someone would start this thread!!!! I LOVED taking photos last year and this year I have 4 memory cards versus my crappy advantix camera... but I just wanted to make sure it would be okay because there were naruto cosplayers at akon who didn't want to take pictures with other people... they were family and I understand that but that's why I'm asking ><

I really can't wait and yeah OO I don't mind a ribbon at all! all the people with me will wear one heh ^^

er what ever color they decide that is OO;

plus if it's okay to take pictures we need to take lots of crazy f unny ones ^_^ that's what was so fun about last year!

Yay people are replyin! All of you Naruto cosplayers are more than welcome :D
And tonsa pictures are a MUST (as well as funny ones). I just didn't see a Naruto gathering starting so I decided to start my own.
Also if we need somewhere to meet or somethin, you guys can swarm by artist alley table. That or I'll look at a map (if someone has a link that'd be great) and try and figure out a good place to meet (suggestions more than welcome).
And yay the ribbon idea :D I thought it was a really good idea and I'm glad you guys think so too.

Well I can't wait. This is great how we're already arranging things and whatnot for AnimeFEST, always nice to get a headstart.

And if the Naruto gatherin people want me to start a thread so that it's easier to pick everyone out and update the list, I will. All depends on what you guys think is best.

...that's about it. Lookin forward to seein you guys there!

Looks like for AnimeFEST it will be Kratos from Tales of Symphonia. The 2nd costume, if any, will be Chris from Scrapped Princess or Sora from .hack//SIGN. Depends on how well my Kratos hair holds out. >>

I look forward to this con. I have never been to it before. :)

I'm so glad it's okay!! I felt kinda down at A-Kon because of that heh ^^ and YES tons of pictures...

last year we went outside to take them? Just outside on the steps on the opposite side of the dealers room place? Or was it on the bottom floor... well now it's not too clear ^^; but it was a great location and we had alot of fun out there! I can't wait to do this again ^^ I just gotta find someone to use my camera for group shots...

or anything I'm in LOL I must make sure to take lots of pictures ^^ and the ribbons... what color should they be? I know you said purple and I think that would be great! And we'll have to set up a general time and make sure to hunt down ALL the naruto cosplayers! er and not annoy them O.O

No prob, glad you want to join :D
Ok well outside would be nice, oh one thing I saw a Naruto group do at AnimeFEST was chant the Ninja of the Night song (or w/e you want to call it) I thought that was pretty cool.
Yeah we need to come up with times, I know I'll be there Sat and Sun (prob in the morn around 9 or 10ish and until who knows)
I really want to do the pics though, I missed the Naruto group at A-kon and felt really bummed when I saw the BILLIONS of pics of that group.

Also I note to the Naruto cosplayers: I can help with shoes and even have an idea for custom made headbands if you need either. *shrug* Just in case, I know I'm prob gonna be teachin my whole group of friends how to make shoes XD Oh well... We're also tryin to come up with a variety of poses for each character too so each picture will be different, so if you guys want to be included in any of this just send me some notes and I'll see what I can do.


As for ribbon colors...purple sounds good. But if you can't get purple just choose another color. I mean I doubt many people (who aren't on the site) will be freely wearing lil ribbons on their badges. ...now that I've said that some new thing bout wearing ribbons on badges will pop up and EVERYONE at AnimeFest will be wearing ribbons on their badges :eeek:

That's about it ...*yawn* so tired...nearly 1am. Well I'll post more after more replies :D *very happy this is actually all being planned out and whatnot*

You naruto people don't care what shoes I wear while I'm in sexy no jutsu do you? (It'd probably be better if I take them off for pictures, and put them back on when I go walking around.) I'll probably wear white shoes to match the fluffy clouds or like ballet shoes. Flip flops is a possibility, or whatever. I have no idea. XD

Any sounds good to me. White sounds like a nice matchin color. One of my friends went around A-kon just in socks because she forgot her shoes or somethin (how do you forget your shoes at home?) *shrug* I...don't know...
All in all any Naruto people bein part of the gathering can wear whatever shoes they want to. I'm just sayin if anyone needs help with shoes or headbands just send me a message, 'cause I've successfully made both (though now that I finally got my $20 headband in the mail from Hong Kong, it was only a few weeks late for A-kon, I'll be wearin that one instead of my homemade one).
I'll post a pic of myself in my gallery closer to the convention so you guys find the right Gaara XD

Still lookin forward to it :D And I'll see you guys there.

...hmm should I post a list of all the characters the group has so far or wait for more people?

It's the only thing I've been able to think about honestly x___x; But I'll probably be wearing a purple ribbon since I like purple! I'll be scouting out others heh ^^ Oh and yeah! we should make a cosplay list of naruto cosplayers! I don't think it matters at ALL if there is like more than one of each character, I think that'll make for more fun photo opportunities! I don't wanna ignore anyone just because there is another cosplayer who is better dressed the same =_= I felt like that at A-kon heh ^^ but yes! So who wants to start the list er wait O.O did Makare say they would do it ^_^?

I could definetly use some advice about making the Naruto footwear! I have a pretty good idea where to start, but help very much welcome at this time! Just PM me ^_^ By the way, did we say what day we wanted to have the big Naruto gathering?? I ask because I will be other characters that weekend, and i want everyone in my closet to get a chance to prance around. They get cranky if i don't let them out once in a while. ^_^;

06-26-2005, 01:00 AM
Ok I'll make a list, in fact I'll stick it on the end of this post. It'll include friends and people who have told me they ar ebeing apart. I'm not sure about some of the people who have posted saying they'll be a Naruto char but never directly said they'll be part of our group so I'll put a (?) next to their name.
And Tenya, I'll send you some advice asap. As for days, does Saturday sound good to everyone? Sunday is usually too quiet and I'm not sure if I'll be in school or not Friday *has yet to look at school schedule for this*. So does Saturday work everyone?
Now for our list :D The order will be starting at page one of this thread and just reading through to see who said they're doing Naruto cosplay and whatnot. I can probably alphabetize it later or somethin if you want and...DOUBLES (triples, quadruples, etc) ARE MORE THAN WELCOME YAY! :D

Shikamaru- Tenya Muyo
Gaara-First Outfit- Me
Kakashi- Chibi Kakashi
TenTen-First Outfit-XariaWolf
Chouiji/Jiroubu- Neuron (?)
Sexy No Jutsu- Fallen)x(Angel
Sasuke-Black Outfit- Sean (not on this site)
Kabuto-Tyler (in the works, not on this site)
Ino- Katie (if we can convince her to wear it again, not on this site)

.:If Any of this Info Is Not Correct, Please Send Me a PM and I Will Fix/Update it Asap. If you have a (?) Please PM me to verify if you want to be a part of the group or not (not that it matters):.
And that's about it for now :D Any and all Naruto cosplayers are welcome, there is no limit to the amount of cosplayers cosplaying as a certain character.

~I Hope Saturday Works For You~

See you there!

Oh, and I'll be in this costume for maybe an hour or two on saturday, and all day sunday.

Happy early birthday! I'll be sure to give you a hug :D
...You should carry tissues around for guys with nose bleeds XD

Well I'll be there Sat and Sun so heck, maybe we can get together both days. Though, as far as I could tell from A-kon, Sat had much more cosplayers than Sunday (which is why I suggested Sat). Either there me, my gourd, and my costume will be there (and I'll be sure to stock up on red hair spray this time, I ran out after partially spraying my hair for A-kon on Sun, whoops)

We have major rent & bills issues to take care of, I'm sorry ;_; It's possible I may be roaming the halls without a badge for a few hours to say hi to friends, or if I can manage to afford one, I may stay during the day. Fortunately it -is- on the train line. T_T But no hotel room for me! >_<

Does A-FEST have lockers or something of some kind I can stash my normal clothes and stuff in? I don't want to wear my costume on the train again, too many stares.
I'm only going Saturday now. And I'll be there in Psycicker Yuna. And when I get there can everyone help me find Bishoujo Aimee? I have to give her this. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=381435
And I know if we try to meet up somewhere one of us is either going to be late, or forget where it is we wanted to meet up XD .

Heh I always found it amusing to see other people fascinated *or other verb* with my cosplay...I guess it's because I'm more outgoing. I've worn my sakura cosplay in downtown boston on a dare, and I wore full japanese traditional clothing on the Metro rail in houston to get to Herman park. Good times...at any rate if I get a hotel room I'd be glad to lend u some space.

Hehe I've cosplayed at the mall before with my friend on boring weekends <.< And another of my friends WANTED to go on the train just for the stares/attention.
Hey has anyone ever thought about how the (normal) people at hotels feel when they wake up one morning and their hotel is covered in crazy people in costumes and such? Do the hotels even warn the people that a convention of crazies is being held? Hmmm I wonder...

Well it sounds like it's gonna be fun :D I'm sorry to whoever can't make it, maybe next year yeah?

Also, bout the Naruto and Cosplay.com ribbon thing that we've planned, I've noticed a post in the A-kon forum relating to AnimeFest, do you think we should put a link to this thread in the A-kon one since I'm not sure if people realize there's an Animefest thread in the other category (heck I found it by some chance)? Just wondering, it'd be nice to get the most amount of people to read this so that they know to wear the ribbon (if they want) or so that they can sign up for the gathering. Just a thought...

Well see you there and yeah....that's about all I haveta say. Remember Naruto gathering on Sat but I'll be there Sunday for whoever wants to hang out (and I'll have snacks for the hungry...hopefully/probably <.< )

I am having the same type of problem. I am not staying in the hotel and am wearing my costumes different days, and I would rather not drive up there in costume>0<;;; How expensive is hotel parking? I would rather park IN the hotel so I woulnt have to walk around dallas after dark. in fact, I refuse to park outside the hotel>< Id rather pay the extra money than walk outside after dark in a costume.

Oi! Any Sasukes going to Animefest? Hmm, stupid question...of course there will be Sasukes! There's always Sasukes! Okay, any Sasukes that wanna take yaoish, fangirl-squealing pics with me? I'll be Naruto and I'm looking for Sasukes I can take kissy, huggy type photos with. If you're interested, just PM me or email me at Daisukegirl@hotmail.com

Thanks!

BTW, this will be my first time at Animefest, is it better than A-kon? Someone told me Animefest is funner, but I really enjoyed A-kon, but I'm a small town hobo anyway, so my opinion doesn't count.

He always jokes about GaaraxSasuke and TenTenxSasuke (yes I know that's not yaoi) with my friend and me but I'll ask him 'bout doin NarutoxSasuke for the fans xD. I also have a friend who -wants- to do Naruto but her costume is 0% done so it's somewhat unlikely (who knows)

And if I were to go, I would improve my Mousse costume and actually get a wig!

I may not be able to go as Sexy no Jutsu any more. Seeing as how we're driving up to the con Saturday morning, and I'm in a Tales of Symphonia group all saturday since that's the only day the other group members can go to the con, and then Sunday I planned on being Rei Ayanami, and cosplaying as maybe Martel again or Rei again on Monday until I leave to go home. I think we'll be leaving Saturday morning at around like 6 a.m. and get there at around 10 a.m. My T.o.S group is meeting at around noon I think. Or, at least, that's when I need to be in my Martel costume. So I may have two hours to wear Sexy no Jutsu, or even more or less depending on what time I get there, and I might be able to wear it some on Sunday, and if anyone is still there on Monday I can be decked out in it then. Don't take me off the list, because I'll still pack the costume, but we'll have to see if I have time to wear it or not. Plus, I need to find a wig that will work for Martel and Sexy No Jutsu, which isn't going so well...

Sorry but I clearly remember posting -multiple- times if I should start a thread or if this was the right place or if we should link in the A-kon section and did I get any replies...no.

I'm just postin the gathering will the most people will see it to make the gathering as large as possible. Personally I think the A-kon thread would be best, I mean there's already one AnimeFEST post in there and I know there have been others in the past.
So until where this should be moved is settled by popular vote or whatever, the discussion will continue here. I understand while this isn't off topic it is taking up the majority of the posts so as soon as we get this settled I'll link the new thread in a post here and we'll "be out of your hair" as they say.

And Fallen Angel I'm really sorry you can't cosplay as Sexy No Jutsu the whole time but as long as your having fun (no matter who you're cosplaying as) that's all that matters, right?
...and it's on Monday?? o_o If it is I'll definately hitch hike my way to the con! ^_^

So far I'll prob just be Gaara, my Son Goku (Saiyuki) costume needs too much work, my Yu-Gi-Oh costume (from my first convention a while back) of Tomb Robber Bakura I don't really want to wear anymore (what can I say, fads come and go...), and my Samurai Deeper Kyo outfit that I -really- want to make will probably only be ready next year, no sooner.

So uhm there's some non-Naruto Gathering, AnimeFEST related stuff...I think <.<;; And er I hope to see you all there? :D Stinks that school will be in though during AnimeNEXT....*sigh*

2) Is it okay to bring a camera or camcorder?
3) Will I have to be in that "Saturday Night Cosplay" if I come dressed up on Saturday?
4) If I do have to be in it, what will I have to do?

1) Security rules vary from con to con. I think that as long as it is not metalic you should be fine.
2) Yes it is ok to bring cameras and camcorders, however they may be forbidden at certain events, such as concerts (depends on the record company/ agent)
3)No, if you cosplay on saturday you do not have to enter the competition it is completely voluntary.
4) If you do decide to enter the competition, you can go on as a "walk on" and then all you have to do is a pose or two on stage to show your costume to the judges and then you walk off. Pretty simple,ne? You can also do a skit, if you're the outgoing type. These are very diverse, some are comedic, some act out scenes from the series the cosplay is from, some do fight sequences (at safely reduced and practiced speeds). I've also seen dances and an Aeris playing her theme on the violin. (the cosplay rules are here: http://www.animefest.org/AF2005/Cosplay.php)

It never ends mwahaha <.<;;

Uhm I usually stay from 9am to however late you're willing to stay. The later you stay, the more "adult" the crowd becomes and the earlier you come, the less that's open (like the dealer room opens around 10am I think or 9am, depends). Though also, if you come when the dealer's room is just opening, you're more likely to get those few items that they have little of and tend to sell out quickly. Other than that...just come sometime in the morn, maybe even as late as noon, to as late as you want to stay usually works out nicely. Be prepared to stay late if you're doin the Sat Night Cosplay. The walk on is fun though, and just sittin there watchin the skits and walk ons is fun too :D And, if you don't sign up (like me and my rag-tag Naruto group at A-kon) they'll still try to find you a spot in the walk-on.
Hope that helped and I hope you enjoy you're first convention :D

Yeah that's what I meant <.< I mean there's a time when not much is going on and, obviously, it ends sometime Monday night and/or begins sometime Friday morning. Anytime in between though there's bound to be cosplayers, though I can't guarantee if there'll be any panels and such reeeeeeally late or reeeeeeally early.

Also, if people are still interested in the ribbon idea... in order so we can better recognize fellow cosplay.com members, the NJ/NY cosplayers came up with the idea to put a purple ribbon on their badges. I'll have a ribbon on mine (though my badge will most likely be in my pocket <.<) and I think a few others are too ^_^ Just keeping this idea fresh so more people have ribbons (personally I'd prefer black or blue...but I guess purple works <.<;; )

Okay, here's the cosplayers I'm seeking:

-Sasuke (B/C I will be Naruto and an obsessor Sakura-original)

-Shikamaru (B/C I will also be Ino)

-Any Digimon characters (B/C I will be Tai and my friend will be Matt)

And that's about it. Just PM me if you're any of these ppl.

BTW, Brandi and I (as Matt and Tai) will be taking yaoish pics together, so if anyone wants to take pics of us, you're more than welcome to! Oh, and OklaUBandGeek1, will you be there with Vash so I can get more pics? :love:

Dang... I never thought that getting a costume would be THIS hard. I might get my Auron costume made by these ppl at some website but for quite a big price. So if you all see me at Animefest and dont see me in Auron's robe, point and laugh at me okay? Oh and btw... I'll be at Animefest on Saturday and maybe Sunday. Why do I tell you all this? Its cuz my friends that WERE gonna go with me turned out that they couldnt so I need some couple of ppl to hang out with while im there... Please? I'll give you a free picture if you hang out with me (kidding kidding I dont charge for pics lol).

Yeah... there only seems to be one teeny-tiny problem. I dont know how to sew. Heh the last time I tried to sew something was a lil heart-shaped pillow for my mom for Valentine's. That turned out to be a disaster instead and I stitched myself so many times on my fingers. And besides... I dont have that sort of good equipment to make a costume and I really dont have much money to go buy one either. So yeah... -.-

Bring your Sora or I'll rip you in half. *ahem* uh....anyway...

The farther I get into Martel the hotter the costume gets, so I doubt I'll be in Martel all Saturday long. I guess I can kind of divide the day between three costumes.

Sexy No Jutsu - 9:00 - 12:00
Martel - 12:00 - 6:00
Aura - 6:00 - Rest of the Night

The cosplay contest is on Saturday isn't it? This kind of screws things up...cause I don't know which costume I'm gunna enter. Probably Martel, Aura, or Rei's Plugsuit.

Okay, but if Auron is costing you so much money, why not just go as another character with a less harder costume, so it won't cost as much? I'm running out of suggestions here...

Yeah I did seem to do that before I got into choosing the character I were to cosplay as. I had to choose from some of the male characters from FF 7,8 and 10. Here were the lil results...

Cloud: The hair is impossible and im not the sort of person that wears wigs lol.
Cid (FF7): Hair is blonde. No way im changing my hair color.
Vincent: I could have been him, but he has sorda long hair so no.
Sephiroth: White long hair... what else do I need to say?
Squall: Could have been him, but he looks like he has straight hair T_T.
Seifer: Again... a blondie.
Cid (FF8): Great... Lemme be a chubby guy with a red vest. No.
Irvine: He has long hair... No.
Zell: Another blondie.
Tidus: E-GAD! NO! >_<
Cid(FF10): No... Thank god im not bald.
Wakka: I hate Wakka... He got Lulu. >=(
Braska: Great... A summoner! No.
Jecht: The Tommy Lee look aint working for me.
Seymour: Uhh... What's up with the hair? No.

From all of those it seemed that Auron sort of suited me better. Even though the price is big, im gonna try to find a way to get myself some money so I can pay for it. Thanks for trying to help Angel.

Possibilities:

Kakashi (Naruto... if I ever finish his costume and get a wig. 0.o;)
Wolf Toboe (Wolf's Rain)
Hikaru (Magic Knight Rayearth)

*sigh* But I don't exactly have money to go out and get any fabric, so I may be stuck with the same fursuit from A-Kon or Toboe... with a cruddy hood. 0.o; *le sigh* Bah, who cares, as long as I go right? XD

i know your probably wanting to go as a main character, but what about rufus or one of the turks? i'm sure laguna's probably out of the question since he has long hair, kiros is black and ward has a big build. and squall having straight hair, auron's isn't exactly curly. what about zack? not exactly cloud, black hair,but almost everything else is the same. and about not knowing how to sew, ask around someone might be able to help you. just don't put the bulk of the work on them unless that's something you can agree on. it definitely feels alot better to say "i made this."

As I've probably said before (And don't be hatin' on me just because I don't have any pictures of myself cosplaying as of yet), I will be going as Yu-ki from Malice Mizer, and we're gonna have the whole band there. Such as, Gackt, Kami, Mana, and Kozi. Kami is making our costumes and so far they are wonderous. We're gonna be there the whole time, though we won't be in our full Malice Mizer outfits untill Saturday night, which is the cosplay contest. But we will be dressing up in black suits (yes, all but one of us are girls (Kami is the only guy. =P)) for the Opening Ceremonies on Friday night. We got everything planned out, too, thanks to Mana. (Imagine that..)

If anyone sees us there, please come up to us while in our costumes. We love possitive feedback and pictures. You all must take lots of pictures! (And so am I, thanks to my hand dandy digital camera. :D )

Wolf Toboe - Wolfs Rain (Maybe... I'll have no way to change costumes if I want too... seeing as how I won't have a room this time)
Kakashi - Naruto (If I get the costume finished in time.... And seeing as how that wig is with my Kyou wig, I'll possible be improvising and either just be a random Shinobi, or make a wig out of the left over fur I have from another costume that looks good enough to be hair for awhile... Though it's white... not gray. *shrug*

Yes, we must. You'll have to listin for me over then seeing me. I'm rather small but I found some really cool coins on a ribbin, so I had to place them on. Its nice beause they are real metal and not fack tin or some light weight. I hope I'm not going to over board on the costume. It was just going to be the anime look but them I found cool coins, some gold hoops for barclet, and yah. I'm going to try a post pictures of my progress, as soon as I can figure out how to get my pictures on the computer. I have a digital that used cds and my computer can't read cds at this time.

Is soooooooooooo excited. I'd love to take pictures of anyone who is willing to because I love taking photos just as much as doing costumes.

Sadly, somehow i end up doing something last minute for just about every con i've gone to (except Ushicon 4). The whole panic message is to keep me going with all my projects so as to not do an A-kon 16 and spend most of the night working on stuff. :thumbsup: *Kintaro Oe voice* One cannot survive on only 3 hrs. of sleep for the span of 3 days............ this is so educational!! :square:

I went to both last year (and A-kon this yr) and have to say both were just as fun. AnimeFEST is smaller and easier to navigate (I find finding panels and such much easier than in the giant space of A-kon) and hmm...I think I liked the dealer's room at A-fest better last year. Though cons always change and (try to) improve so it's hard to say. Both are great cons though :D

Tenya Muyo
08-07-2005, 09:44 PM
AnimeFEST is a lot more social and informal (in a good way) than A-kon. It just feels looser and more comfortable. And it's a lot less crowded! You meet people alot easier too. I guess you could say it's more like meeting place for all your friends than a busy convention. I sometimes like it more because of that! ^_^


And since i missed the last couple of times.......... 29........28..........27............. 26 days to go!! :jjacks:

Hay sweetie
^_^m I live 10 mins from the OK TX border. U can take a train from OK city to Gainsville. & if you want My friends & I can take u along with us?
If you need a place to stay. We have a room. Its a suit. so the price is kind of high. But everyone whom is in the group thinks its a GREAT deal!
reight now its 151.00 for 4 nights & 5 days. (most of us arrive a day before the kon.) If we get a few more people to join our group. The room price will drop to 114.00.

If you dont want to do that. On the train. The train goes from OK city to Gainesville to FW, then u have the hop on the dart over to dallas. Its really quite fun once u get the hang of it. ^_^

I just never seem to see anyone but other Squalls all over the place ... v_v (My Squall should be 100% finished by then, and judging by the mass number of times I was stopped for piccies at A-kon with an 80% finished costume, I'm kinda scared I'll be kidnapped and assaulted by a rabid fangirl or something <_<) ... riiight.... ...
oh and the dance thing sounds awesome, could you send me more details about it (This is the first I've heard of it, so thank you so much for breaking the rules and whatnot), Hopefully I can talk to my boss and get the full 4 days off, but still workin on that...

But yeah, is anyone in for the FF8 cosplay group (and possibly skit if we can pull one together) because if there is to be a skit, Someone needs to start writing it now and we're slowly running out of time and such... so yis, feel free to reply to the post or PM me if you're in... (include which character you intend to cosplay and if it's a possibility or certainty that you will: 1) be at Afest and 2) have the costume done in time... it would just make back-up plans and such easier to form... oh and if you don't want to be part of the skit/have prior arrangements, feel free to mention it)

Well, if my friend ends up going, she'll be Rinoa from Final Fantasy 8. Though, I'm not sure she'd be interested in skits, major stage fright. If I had time to plan and get a costume ready, I'd definately get in, but oh well. Good luck though. I have a feeling I'll get mauled in my Kakashi or Kyou costume... I got glomped plenty of time in my Toboe costume (fursuit) and I plan on wearing it one day to Afest.... but I'm not sure. ^^; I wouldn't have anywhere to change... I might be able to have a friend come and leave some clothes in her car. *shrug* Oh well... I won't get to go Friday *Cries and kicks school* THough, next year I won't have to worry about that. *graduates this year*
Anyway. er.... I still have yet to finish my Kakashi costume, but I think I'll get it done. Still... I'll have no wig for Kyou or Kakashi (Though... I'll probably end up using fur for Kakashi's hair)

I've been wanting to do a Kurapica costume for some time, but i have a long list to finish before I cosplay him. I'll probably do either his original costume with red eyes and two swords or his red chinese-ish costume.

Sweet, I kinda needed a Hao. I've been contemplating doing him or Yoh's battle outfit. But...you might be like...taller than me (i'm friggin short, 4'10)

Haha I have no idea when I'm getting to a Shaman King costume... but yeah I'm 5'9", not too good. :P Probably why I lean towards Yoh's father at times (in addition to his wonderful personality)... since Silva is a giant and Hao is a shrimp... but you have to like a guy who wears a cape with no shirt underneath. :P

Tenya - awesome! A killua! I think I'll be going as Kurapika either on Friday or Monday. Hopefully friday, but let me know if that works for you and if you'd like to meet up somewhere. You can pm me if you need to ^^

Mitchi - either costume would be cool, depends on if you wanna be a "good guy" or a "bad guy" lol... I hadn't thought to get a hunter's license. I'm looking up pics now. Pm me your email or something and I can send them your way. I know I've got a couple pics in my scans. Thanks!

Seriously XD

There's just something alluring about a cape containing a bishie with longer hair than me who has a Hitler complex. XD

@pan pan

Thanks ^-^

I'd take screenies, but all i have is a greed island vcd...nothing from the main part of the series. HxH needs more love! ;_;!

I'm glad I found this thread!
I'll be going as Edwrad Elric from FMA, and my friend, Jesse, will be going as Winry. If we can get our costumes done. XD
Procrastination = Bad o_O
My other friend, Scott, wanted to go as Roy Mustang, but since we only have 2 weekd till the Con we would NEVER be able to get that costume done when he hasn't even started. He dosen't have the $40 to get in either. I got Jesse a free pass because my dad is high up in the hotel, but I can't get too free passes. Plus he's shorter the Edo.

Will anybody else be conplaying an FMA character?

It's official, I shall go as Kakashi. XD *dances* The costume is done minus a few small details like the gloves. But, I also need to get/make my wig. I'm going to do that this weekend though, then I can properly take pictures of the costume. XD Man, that thing is hard as heck to put on and take off. 0.o;

Okay uhm I've got a quick question 'bout registration via mail.
For A-kon, when I sent my money and such in, I got a letter back with a membership number and all of that to prove I actually DID register.
Well aorund July 18th I sent in my money and all my info for A-fest...they have my art site listed as those registered for the Artist Alley...but I have yet to recieve any e-mail or snail-mail telling me that my stuff was recieved, much less any way to prove I registered (other than telling them my name up front).
So yah am I -supposed- to get something from them...or am I just over-stressing? Or should I go e-mail them right now bout this? If anyone happens to know, and can help somewhat, that'd be great. Thanks!

...how many days til A-fest now? o.o;

Kikala
08-18-2005, 10:26 PM
I got an e-mail just saying that the credit card went through and was paid... I don't know if that's what we're supposed to use or what you get if you do money-order or whatever. 0.o; I'd like to know myself.

Countdown: 15 days... I think. 0.o; Maybe 14. *shrug* Somewhere around there. XD

08-18-2005, 10:30 PM
Ooo the website for animefest actually IS useful xD

*just read 'bout the membership/registration thing* Hmmm well you either show 'em a receipt or an ID badge and they use their ultra nifty comp data base to verify you have a membership <.<;;; Guess I shoulda looked that up first, whoops ^_^;;

...wow only 14-15 days :eeek: I still haveta fix my Gaara gourd up and buy hair spray and figure out how to wear the gourd and...and...and...go finish my 74-page assignment for History <.< *cough* Though I DID fix up my Ninja shoes whoop-de-doo <.<;

Er yah...g'night? See you in 14...or 15...days ^_^;;

Kikala
08-18-2005, 11:09 PM
Oh, and Gaara! ^^; I shall be Kakashi. *nods* Er... anyway, 74 pages 0.o; Crud man... That's a lot.

I just made some ninja shoes... 0.o; I already did one pair backwards, so I have to resew the seam... but, then again... no one will see it. XD

Good luck with that, and thanks. That's what I thought, but I was just thinking you might have to have the receipt... and I have no idea where it is. XD

I was planning on doing a Kouga, but that didn't work out, sorry. Maybe next A-Kon.

Well as AnimeFest approaches I get more excited^^ Can't wait for my lovely mini-road trip on friday with Lopmon and Kitten (they cosplayed as Risa and Riku from DNAngel at KamiKazeCon) And to anyone who went to O-ChibiCon on saturday this year, I am the cookie girl, and I will have more cookies for AnimeFest.

Planned costumes-
Akamaru from Naruto
Roze from FMA
Hikari from Haibane Renmei

Possibilities-
a simple EGA outfit
Aura from .hack
Original Temari (I wore it at A-kon)

PS- I hope everyone is still going to wear the purple ribbon on their badges to show that they're from cosplay.com. I will^^

Ok, well my friend and I are in a sort of predicament... we were going to have a room from noon friday to checkout monday and had the same 8-10 people that we roomed with at Akon, but now literally half of them can't make it to Afest, so we're looking for some people who need rooms...
Prereqs for rooming consist of:
General fondness/indifference for gaming (we'll have naruto fighting game and dk bongo game with 4 controllers and 4 bongos on Gamecube, other games are currently being considered)
Acceptance that you will most likely not get a bed to yourself at night. If you don't want to share, be willing to sleep on the floor.
At least a couple months at cosplay.com (so that I can read your posts and see if you would get along with most peoples in the room... one of which is VERY opinionated on certain topics...)
Capable of having fun at a convention... no one wants to room with a downer...
Willing to pay an even share for the 3 nights (even if you don't intend to stay all 3 nights... discussion of exactly how much this will be comes after we know how many peoples will be in the room...)
uhhh... *blank look* I think that's everything my buddy (the one who has the room reserved) wanted me to say... uhhh... I'll just add that the room is already reserved, so there's no chance of getting there and being like 'O_- no room?!? ARRRGH!' so yeah, that's a good thingum... *looks around panicked*
That's all, hope everyone has fun at Afest! *Runs away*

EDIT: Oh, right, if anyone who's interested cares, the current ration is 3 guys: 2 girls... laterz!

EDIT^2: And also, if you are interested, PM me so we don't junk up the thread... ok, now I'm certain that's all, sorry for such a long post v-v Gomen...

Ya, its going to be on Sunday around 7PM. Meet up is at the main desk. Now on the place we are going to eat at. That has not been figured out yet. I thought we all could eat at the place in the hotle. Or maybe go out for Sushi? not quite sure on leaveing the hotel in Down Town Dallas.

I might be going to AnimeFest. I haven't bought a ticket yet. As long as they have at the door registration I'll be going since I go to Univ. of North Texas (an hour north of Dallas). I just made a Taijiya Kohaku (Inuyasha) costume for Otakon 2005 (this past weekend) that I'll probably bring along with possibly my last year's Advent Children Cloud Strife costume. I dont have time right now to read this whole thread, but if you're doing Inuyasha cosplay, feel free to PM me. I'd love to find an Inu group to walk around with.
