Hey all AnimeFest Naruto Cosplayers!

I've been gathering Naruto Cosplayers in the AnimeFest thread under "Other" Conventions but now we've been moved due to crowding that thread <.<

So anyways, we've got a fairly nice group going on so far and are looking for any and all Naruto cosplayers. Doubles...Triples...hah even Quadruples of a character are welcomed, so don't shy from joining if your character is already taken.

Also, I know I'll be doing the walk-on so if any other Naruto Cosplayers would like to go up there with me, that'd be great! Just PM me or post on here if you want to be added to the list. Not all people on this list are members of the cosplay.com forum but they're gonna be a part anyways.

But I might get rid of one of them, I dunno. Definantly going as Naruto and definantly Sasuke-Obsessor Sakura b/c it's an adorable costume!

Makare
07-21-2005, 05:56 PM
Hehe ok I'll add those extra costumes, and people too if you'd like ChibiKakashi.
Don't worry, this is my thread...nothing's spam unless it has to do with something completely and utterly random and unrelated to AnimeFest/Naruto/Naruto Gathering ^^;

Can't wait to take pics and such too...I'm about to go but I'll update the list when I get back <.<;

OH! I don't mind if you add them!! I don't know who they'll be at the photoshoot though ^^;

my sister Melody is going to be Tayuya and older Naruto
my friend Sara is going to be Sakon and older Sakura
my friend Matt is going to be Kimimaro I think
and if Aaron goes he'll be Jiroubu (if he gets the costume done) and Chouji
I'll be Kakashi at the photoshoot but also around the con I might be Young Kakashi, Kidoumaru, maybe Ebusi and maybe Sir Auron from ffx... maybe x__x

and those three, Melody, Sara and Matt aren't really on cosplay.com heh.

Hope that helps and I gotta make the young kakashi cosplay ^^ anyone have any advice on how to make his sword/kodachi type weapon on his back? I'm almost certain I wouldn't be able to use a real one x__x; and also I don't know the offical name of the weapon ^^; but any help would be nice or someone could direct me to a forum maybe that would help...

but now I'm really getting exicited about the cosplay! Did anyone have any idea what would be a good time to meet? or maybe we'll all just decide at the convention?

also anyone staying at the hotel? Just curious! I am... and if we're on the same floor we should bother each other ^_^ heh

That's a nice list though ^_^ I can't wait for AnimeFEST either, guess I better get to working on my costume ^.^;
Hmm about the hotel room, I'm most likely not going to have one v.v but I'll be there Sat-Mon definately from around 9/10am to who knows how long. I'll probably be there the longest Saturday, the shortest Monday. All depends how the art sales go and such.
See you all there and good luck on finishing up/fixing/making your costumes! :D

Makare
08-01-2005, 12:55 AM
Well I'm sorry Kayoubi you couldn't come, you'd be very much welcome if you coul though :D And glad to have you Xiola-Chan ^__^
Ok well we agreed on Saturday on the last thread we were posting in. As for time/location, I really have no idea what the layout of the place looks like *bad memory* but I have (or should have, sent in the money) an artist alley table that we may be able to meet up at/chill at. And time...well maybe noonish?
Just tell me what you guys all think is best. I think our main gathering will be Sat though but I'll be there Sunday and Monday too if you want to get together then too!

Fallen)x(Angel
08-01-2005, 10:37 AM
Well, I think my Tales of Symphonia group is meeting at noon, so I'll be in my Sexy No Jutsu costume from about 9-12, and then again like and hour before the cosplay masqurade. I ish gunna be singing a song. ^^

Makare
08-06-2005, 06:03 PM
Ooo cool! (bout the singing the song)
Hmm yeah I guess most groups meet around noon. So how bout an hour earlier than that.

Does 11am on Saturday sound good for everyone? I'd suggest gettin there a bit earlier though just in case something happens.
Now we just need a meeting spot... I'm sure we can meet in one place and then move to a better one or somethin like that.

So yeah feel free to suggest a meeting spot and give input on the meeting time.

See you there! *goes off to work on costume <.<; *

Xiola-Chan
08-09-2005, 09:10 PM
My suggestion would be to meet in a main area where everyone would be able to find easily, Like in the lobby or something. And also I may have the new Gaara with me at the shoot. So you will have the new Naruto and Gaara.

Tenya Muyo
08-10-2005, 01:18 AM
Oh good, i was about to revive this thread with a pheonix down! ^_^ Anyhoo..... how about meeting in the open area between the restaurant and the bar area? It's the nice open spot that you can see when riding the elevators. Just go through from the check-in desk/lobby and there it is! Nice open place to meet and the like (younger Naruto cosplayers will not be getting sake from the bar, so don't try! :razz: ) Of course if we meet in the lobby, we can freak out the "normals".......... :devil:
*heh heh heh*
Whatever we chose, it's cool with me! Just gotta know so i don't get lost. I really hate that, datto baiyo~~~~!!! ^_^

Xiola-Chan
08-12-2005, 02:58 AM
Freaking out the norms is what i do best tehe...

Makare
08-12-2005, 10:44 AM
I always wondered what it'd be like to be a normal person staying the night at a hotel only to wake up the next morning to find that a bunch of crazies and their Japanese culture took over the whole hotel. Are they even warned about an upcoming con? o_O;

Sounds good to me, I should hopefully be able to find it <.< I'll have my cell so if someone wants to PM me with their number I'll have someone to call if I get hopelessly lost @_@;;

"...so where's the person who started the gathering (or whatever I am)?"
"Last I heard she was on the opposite end of the building up a few floors"

Still looking forward to it ^_^ Gotta finish up my costume a bit now, I fixed my shoes up the other day (I'd say that's a start <.< )

I'll definitely be there. So the final time and place is near the bar on Saturday? What time?

I'll be there as Itachi. :) Sounds like fun!

Fallen)x(Angel
08-16-2005, 08:40 PM
Well, Sexy No Jutsu is completed, the only thing left of my cosplays to do is to add all the rest of the extensions to the SNJ ponytails, and I'm all set for the con. I have a picture of my SNH costume, but since the photos on cosplay.com aren't working I can't upload them. So if you really want a picture and just can't wait until the photos section starts working again, IM me on AIM or give me an e-mail.

Tenya Muyo
08-17-2005, 07:05 PM
So, have we decided on a solid time and place yet? Gotta know, datte baiyo! Or do i have to come over to someones house, perform my shadow technique and force you to do the "Yatta" dance? I will do it...... >:]

Fallen)x(Angel
08-17-2005, 07:28 PM
I want to do the yatta dance! ^_^ I think we're meeting Saturday Mid-Morning?

Makare
08-18-2005, 09:02 AM
Ok it's definately Saturday around 11:30ish.
As for location we've got either the main lobby or the bar area to choose from. So whatever works best, post your preference, would be good.
I think whichever area is more open and actually has a flow of cosplayers/photographers going through it would be good. I mean who knows maybe our group will grow at the con o.o;

Awesome we have an Itachi :D
And congrats on finishing SNJ! *throws confetti*

Fallen)x(Angel
08-18-2005, 08:18 PM

YATTA!!!.......ok, now thats out of my system. hmm, possible the lobby, i dunno where the bar is, seeing as that it has been a while since ive been to afest.

Fallen)x(Angel
08-20-2005, 06:05 PM
The lobby. It'd be easier for us first timers to find.

I ordered a Naruto headband off of Ebay yesterday, so I should be getting it around Monday or so. I think I'm gunna wear it tied around my head or neck at Afest. Just to make Sexy No Jutsu look more spiffy. ^_^b

Makare
08-20-2005, 06:16 PM
Yah I think the Lobby will be a good place too, plus we can always move around. ^_^ So I guess we've got it all set now.

....it should be there Monday...hopefully. I ordered a headband about 2wks early for A-kon and got it about a week -after- A-kon xD
<.<; I had to make my own headband for the con x.x;I felt like sticking a sign on my makeshift headband reading -The Real One's in Hong Kong- but I didn't <.< *cough*
SOooo I hope your ebay person is more efficient than the one I ordered from and that it comes in time!

See you all there! :D

Well, if it doesn't come in I can lend you mine. It's homemade for my Sakura, so it's curved to fit my head better (and it's a tad bigger than the average ones), but it's been washed after every use. Just PM me if you need it.

Oh, thanks! That's awesome!

Knowing me I'll be wearing it around school and tear it up. Then I'll cry at AFest cause I ruined it. Maybe I can hide it somewhere in my room so I don't take it out of its box until September. Hmm...

Not to be overzealous or anything, but if you really need a Naruto headband, my friend and I run an online store: http://sayo.liquidwire.org/naruto/main.html and I could have it ready and bring it to the con if you need one. *shrug* Just thought I'd offer ^^;;;

Update

I was messing around with old elastic material, and came across something I hadn't seen in a while. I didn't know what it was, so I put it on my head, and it serves very well as a Kakashi mask. I think I may be able to do 2 SNJ cosplays for 2 different characters in 1 weekend. That is, if you guys don't mind a blonde SNJ kakashi, or I use my real hair.

Makare
08-30-2005, 06:35 PM
oo sounds cool :D
Uhm you can be a young Kakashi who dyed his hair blonde on some dare/just to do it?

A-fest is this weekend o.o I've been SO bogged down with HW I haven't been able to work on my costume...at all...so I'll prob be stuck carrying the gourd around again under my arm/over my head. At least my shoes are reglued back together! ^_^; I'll only be cosplaying on Saturday since I'm really poor and need to focus on selling at my table rather than cosplaying on Sunday and Monday. But I'll still definately be Gaara :D

Looking forward to Sat!

I think I may just go as Sexy No Jutsu Gaara instead of Kakashi. I'll just wear my mask around when not posing for pictures. I love my mask. ^_^
