Yay! It went a whole lot faster than last year, IIRC they didn't have a signed contract for the convention until December.

There is definatly a chance that I'll get to go this year, since I will be in Orlando during the summer. It will also be pretty close to my birthday as well!

LoL the con just keeps getting earlier and earlier in the summer...! XD Which isn't a bad thing for me, since I'd like to head to AX2006 as well in July.

O_O Seriously??? It's happening on my birthday, sweet! Ah, I have to goooo...T_T *runs in circles*

This IS a pretty early announcement indeed.

Too bad it is the weekend right after Animazement. I have been trying to go to AZ for years unsuccessfully due to work/school conflicts. Though I could technically attend two cons in two weekends straight through, it could be a bit of a problem scheduling with my job.

I know already what costumes I want to make for Metrocon '06. I will have at least one of them finished by then.

Wow, quick announcement. I think my main costume will be Chii's peachy rose gown from the For Your Eyes Only Artbook, I have the pattern and I really want to bust out with something gorgeous and...BIG AND POOFY! Not to mention the bead work which I always love. I am also planning my Fushigi Yuugi group for this con (me as Nuriko), so I have almost everything settled as far as my costume schedule.

awesome everyone! thats so cool thats its close to ur birthday lucky u!
awesome im thinking of joinning ur group im thinking that i would want to be miaka, my hair is still red after all. ^^

09-14-2005, 10:58 AM
I had planned on going as Dark Mousy, but that all depends on if I can get a wig in time. ~_^ I wanted to do a bunch of new costumes but I don't think I'll be able to make Zechs or Allen in time. T_T Or have the money to, haha. *uses the "it's my birthday present" excuse to get to Metrocon* 0:-D

I will definitely be going as Roland Deschain on Friday, the last great gunslinger from "The Dark Tower" series by Stephen King, yay for pistols! ^.^ If I could complete Zechs in time for Metrocon, I'd wear him Sunday probly. And if I get the wig for Dark, I'll wear him Saturday since that would be the most comfortable costume to wear. ^_^ I hope Vic goes, whee! XD

Princess_Moon
09-14-2005, 11:14 AM
awesome^^ that would be great if u can be dark. i wana take pictures^^ im still trying to figure out what im going to wear. Risa Harada thats one of the costumes i already made.

Shania_Nowhere
09-14-2005, 03:31 PM
Then we should get together and take pictures if I get mine done. ~_^ I have yet to model with someone else from the same series, haha.

Princess_Moon
09-14-2005, 10:39 PM
cool!^^ let me know when ur avalible. Risa Harada is from the same series so i will wear it when we meet.

This time around, I will make it to Metrocon for sure. I'm in the process of making two variations on Sabin from FFVI, one for normal wear and one for the Final Fantasy Ball, so hopefully everything will turn out well. I'm actually sewing themselves this time instead of using the iron on stuff.
I just don't like the idea of having to dye my hair blonde... It will make it almost impossible for me to do my Tenchi or Miroku costumes, but I can set those aside for a con or two.
Hopefully the costumes I'm working on right now will turn out well and I'll see everyone in June.

Princess_Moon
09-20-2005, 12:30 PM
thats cool! yeah im not sure yet on what to wear for the final fantasy ball. i think i'll make an orignal. not sure yet. yeah u probably should get a wig.

Tia
09-20-2005, 05:07 PM
Cool, Makio, I'm also planning on heading to AX. I wanted to this year, but it was too difficult to hit both AX and Metro.

Awesome that your birthdays are so near. What a great bday present.

Auros - I'm glad you're improving with your costuming. I really liked your Miroku. It turned out to be pretty popular, too, didn't it? It would be a shame if you weren't able to wear it again for a while. =/

Shania_Nowhere
09-20-2005, 07:23 PM
Hey Tia, got your PM but I can't reply (your inbox is full!) so here's my response:

Oh! Well, I was just thinking I'd have to buy one and make it myself but if you're willing to make one for me...^.^ How much would you want, though?

Tia
09-25-2005, 08:49 PM
Sorry about my inbox being full. Just don't want to kill the thread.... SO

Is anyone planning any costumes for this con yet? I don't know how much cosplaying I will be able to do but I hope to wear Faery Juri (but might not have time) and maybe something EGA (on friday). If I can't get a new EGA done, I'll wear my dark rose EGL.

Shania_Nowhere
09-25-2005, 11:02 PM
Ooo, I'm planning on doing Dark Mousy (if I have time to make a wig), Roland Deschain, maybe even Allen Schezar or Zechs Merquise if I have the time to make their outfits. O_o Allen will be the most challenging...>_< But Roland's finished so I'm definitely wearing him. Who knows...I might dress up like me once...XD That would be wild. :-p

I want to crossplay as Edward Elric on one of the days, but I'm not sure if I can get what I need for the costume. I can't sew, but I have a vauge idea of who I want to do next year. What's the easiest way to make a metal arm?

Friday: Edward Elric [Full Metal Alchemist]
Saturday: Sara Muto, Schoolgirl Uniform [Angel Sanctuary]
Sunday: Roxy Parkington [Original Trainer, Pokemon]

Tia

Actually, the not sewing is not a huge problem for Edo. There are sets sold on ebay that are actually pretty decent for the price offered, contrary to what ebay usually is like. The wig unfortunately is not very good, and getting a good one from the cosplay.com store will set you back another 40 dollars or so. But you can get a nice one that's the right color.

As for his arm, I have seen people use many different materials. Some have used craft foam, but from what I have seen of that used as armor, it does not take the kind of beating most people put on their costumes at a convention. Real aluminum I've seen once or twice. But if it isn't made by someone with expertise in armor crafting, it can seriously hurt to wear for an extended period of time. If I were to make his arm, I think I would go with either leather or linoleum painted silver. Linoleum is cheaper, though, but I do not know how easy it is to buy in small amounts. It's the stuff that some people put on floors.

You have plenty of time, I doubt you'll have any issues cosplaying Edward. His outfit is on ebay often, and if you want to make it, its not hard to do overall.

* Sara Mudo, btw.


As for me, Tamahome is the only costume I'm bringing, for Janet's FY group.

Princess_Moon
09-30-2005, 01:53 PM
thats cool, i think im only bringing my fy miaka school uniform outifit, and my own supprise. i think thats all. hope to see u all there.

10-01-2005, 09:24 PM
Actually, it turns out that I want to cosplay Nina Tucker (human form) for a Full Metal Alchemist photoshoot at Metrocon; her costume seems to be easier than Edward's as far as creation goes.

Does anyone have any idea of when they'll open registration? I wanna get my ticket early so it doesn't cost me as much. :-p When did it open last year? >.>

10-17-2005, 11:29 PM
i have no clue. o.o hopefully they will update soon. they probably will do pre reg, around april or may.

I think it started in february last year, but I'm not sure.

11-16-2005, 11:23 AM
Ohh, this kind of died. xD

This year at Metro I'll be dressed as InuTiashou. =D Depending on how well it comes out, comfort factor, ext ext, I might just wear that 2 days. -shrug- I dunno. >> I've already got two massive fluffy 'tails' sitting on my bed. <3

Oh, Im also fixing up my Darcia of Wolf's Rain costume, I couldnt see last year( my mask covered my eyes) and my Harmonia had to lead me around xD Oh, and I died of heat. o___o;

So far it looks like...
Friday- Darcia for Wolf's Rain Groups
Saturday- InuTaishou(Maybe a group/ just an Izayoi)
Sunday- InuTaishou or some other group? Not sure.

Shania_Nowhere
11-16-2005, 11:53 AM
It died cause the event's still like...*counts* 7 months from now, haha.

I don't know what I'll be wearing anymore. :-p Dennis got me to make an Integra Hellsing costume so that will probly be done. I wanna make a new costume for this Demian character from War of Genesis so...who knows about that. I had Dark Mousy planned but that will only happen if I can get a wig. I still have Duo but I probly won't bring him with me this time (since I've worn him 3 times already) unless something dreadful happens to the other costumes. I have Roland but he's not anime. Man, who thought that it would be so difficult to choose a costume to wear? O_o Anyone wanna do a Gundam Wing, DNAngel, or a Hellsing group pic? XD It'll help me decide, haha. Or just to bring more costumes, oh gosh...

sakis bluescion
11-16-2005, 03:31 PM

We did a shoot last metrocon, I don't see why we couldn't do it again. It was pretty fun!

Princess_Moon
11-16-2005, 08:11 PM
i hope i can go.. o.o i want to^^

Shania_Nowhere
11-16-2005, 09:50 PM
I hope so too, girl! We haven't gotten to hang out yet! :( We are so posing together, hah. But I don't have a costume that would go with Miaka, I've been thinking of doing Hotohori but I'd have to get a wig or redye my hair brown or something. :-p Blonde Hotohori! XD

11-16-2005, 09:53 PM
Metrocon, ah, I can't wait for it. I'm kind of dissapointed though about how early it will be this year. I'll just a few days to do finishing touches on my costumes after school released for vacation and won't have anything to really look forward to for the rest of summer.

There are so many costumes I would like to do, but I don't have the sewing skills for some of them currently, oh well, it made it easier to narrow my list down to three.

Friday: Aya [love is dead] from Psycho le cemu (Anyone want to make a group?)
Saturday: Miwako from Paradise Kiss. Will be moved to Sunday if friends decide to do anime idol, in that case, Shinya [the final] from dir en grey.
Sunday: Komugi from Nurse Witch Komugi? Or wa-loli outfit? Not sure.

Roxy: I know you said you want to do Nina but if your still interested in cosplaying Edward, there's a great site that has a pattern of his red jacket. It's in Japanese though, but you might be able to use it even if you don't read Japanese.

http://www.cosplay.janchan.com/patterns/edcoat.htm

Then there are various ways you could put the symbol on the back. Hand made stencils, iron ons, sewing a cut out shape on, etc.

I'm not sure about the arm at all. I've seen things like aluminum to cardboard (which surpringly looked good) used. Oh, wait, there's a tutorial on the same site for that: http://www.automail.janchan.com/index.htm

Hopefully it helped some, if not i'm sorry.

Shania_Nowhere
11-16-2005, 10:13 PM
I like the date they have for it (June 2-4) cause...dun dun DUN! My birthday's on the 2nd! XD Awesomest birthday present ever, guys...the shibbiness...I don't know what's wrong with me, I need sleep. :-p

Tia
11-16-2005, 11:31 PM
I would love to have a photoshoot again. The last one was a lot of fun, even though I wasn't able to cosplay during the meetup. Should it be the same way again this year? Or should it be different?

Shania_Nowhere
11-16-2005, 11:50 PM
I liked it last year too, how would we improve on it? I suppose getting the word out a little more might help since a lot of people jumped in last minute and we retook so many pictures, haha. Definitely need to organize it ahead of time and announce it. ^_^ That's about all I have to say.

NiGHTmaren
11-17-2005, 10:18 AM
I'm hoping to have the Prince of all Cosmos done for MetroCon...everything will be easy cept for that head. =_= And the katamari of DOOM. Still planning to bring Nuriko as well, and another costume though I have no idea what...three-day con equates to three costumes, one per day.

Princess_Moon
11-17-2005, 10:52 AM

i never done a photoshoot before, so i can't wait:))
i also finished my yuna staff....and shania if im able to go(which i will) i'll be sure to get u a present:)
n' for the photoshoot, maybe we could do some battle poses!;)

Shania_Nowhere
11-20-2005, 05:34 PM
Awe, that's so sweet, Sakis! ^.^ I didn't expect anyone to get me anything, it's enough of a gift to hang out with my friends, hehe. ^_^

For those of you who haven't been to a photoshoot before, (I haven't either, not until December when I go to my first one, yay!) I'll tell you what we did last time. First off we got together in the room for cosplay.com members then walked together out to the photo op area (a huge blue backdrop set up in the open area near the main events room, couldn't miss it). We organized ourselfs, shortest in the front and tallest in back (some crouched in front with their weapons posed, I was in front crouched next to the girl who did Anthy, the Sailor Pluto was opposite and we crossed our weapons in front) and we all posed to our character's character (does that make sense?). We took about 2 or 3 different pictures of poses then I think there was a silly picture where you were just yourself. Afterword, a couple of groups posed together for pictures and that was about it.

For those who aren't sure what to do, just look at pictures of the character you're impersonating and see how he/she poses. Copy a few of the poses and look at yourself in the mirror to make sure you're doing it right. Bring out the person's personality with your stances, that's what makes you look like the character the most. And don't worry, not that many people have actually been to real photoshoot or know what they're doing so...don't worry. ~_^

Hopefully this year though, we'll have a better organizationing of the rooms where panels and meet ups are put cause I swear, the Cosplay.com get together panel moved 2 or 3 times and we lost people in the process, I only found it cause I saw someone I recognized go in the room, haha. That's about all I would as, for us not to move. And if we do, have people run around announcing the move or something. O_o

11-22-2005, 06:02 PM
Hehe, okay. *blush*

I think it's just gonna be my dad and I going up, that's about all I can afford to take (since I can't drive). He's gonna go fishing in the bay while I do my thing. ^_^ I'm hoping for the whole weekend, all three days, so I can thoroughly enjoy my birthday present...to myself...>_> Seems odd to pay for your own present, haha. XD I'm still waiting for the site to open pre-reg so I can get my ticket cheap! Then we'll see about booking a hotel. >_> Ah, plans...I also have to figure getting a wig commissioned into my budget, but I have a price already on it so I know how much I need to spend. ^_^ Let's see...

Styled wig=80-90 dollars
3 day pass=15-20 dollars (depending on when I get it)
hotel=60-70 dollars a night
gas=50 dollars (fill up probly twice)
total cost=370?! >.<

Dang it...I'm not buying anything at Metrocon. -_-

Tia
11-27-2005, 04:52 PM
It looks like I will just have my caterpillar ega for this one. I was going to wear faery Juri as well, but I think it is too difficult to work in it. I can only wear the ega for a couple hours on friday, because it will be nearly impossible to sit down in, and very hot.

ChinatownLxD
11-27-2005, 04:54 PM
we're planning on bringing our kingdom hearts (destiny island kids) group to metrocon. myself being their riku with a 3 y/o sora..:thumbsup:

i might bring along an EGL or my Ai no Uta AYA...

Pediophobia-yay! you're doing Love is Dead AYA! i must ask...what type of fabric are you using? i'm having such a hard time finding anything i like ><;

hope to see you guys there!

12-06-2005, 03:21 PM
The weekend after Animazement? Wow .-. If I do manage to make it up to Animazement this year, that will make for a fun two weeks x3

I actually might not be able to go - I won't be sure for a while. I have a trip for Japan scheduled for early June... I hope it's not during the convention. I really want to try out for the anime chess match this year.

If I do go, I am most definately getting my Hexadecimal cosplay done.

I'm going to try to get there from all the way up in NE Iliinois if ACEN doesn't work out...I'll have to talk it over with a friend of mine and see if my job will last. (Stupid seasonal positions)

But, if I do go, I want to have-
EGL Jigglypuff
Herr Fantom/Moriarity (LXG)
My Kimono (Provided I finish my Jirachi kanzashi and find some zori sandals or geta clogs)
Anna Valerious's Ballgown (Van Helsing)
Substitute-Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman (Fantastic Four)

Wish me luck, all.

Alright, registration's open finally! It's 30 bucks for this month and it goes up to 40 bucks next month, so I advise you to buy your tickets early, folks! I would but I've spent my money on my ticket to Megacon, heh.

No news as far as the guests go but it's looking pretty good, more dealer room space this year. Also, they're having a Metrocon Mascot contest so if you're interested in being part of it, check it out (girls only)! Here's the details:

LOCATION: Florida Botanical Gardens
DATE: Saturday, January 21, 2006
TIME: 10:00am - 6:00pm

------

Update on my costume of choice: I am currently working on 4 costumes for 2006 and should be done most of them by Metrocon (one of which is for Megacon and has to be done). The choices are:

Integra Wingates Hellsing - Hellsing (anime)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v739/Shania_Nowhere/Integral_002.jpg
Dark Mousy - DNAngel (manga)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v739/Shania_Nowhere/darkmain.jpg

Quatre Reberba Winner - Gundam Wing (anime)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v739/Shania_Nowhere/q7.jpg


The image links are to show what versions of the outfits I'm going for. Dark Has two pics cause I'm doing the necklace/leather thong thingy around his neck too (no, I'm not leaving the shirt unzipped all the way, being a girl and all...:-p Just enough to show the necklace.) So whatcha think, guys?

yay! I'm going to METROCON again so I'm really excited:rofl: still not sure who I'm dressing up as but I might wear one of my costumes that I wore to the last one. Definetly trying out for the chess match and anime idol again. Anyone plan to try out for anything?

01-01-2006, 02:26 AM
I might do anime idol cause I like singing but I don't know many Japanese songs, haha. All I know is the ballad "Sora" from the Escaflowne movie, kind of boring. :-p And I don't have a costume to go with it so...I'll either pick something from Hellsing, Gundam Wing, or DNAngel. Will have to look into that. Maybe that spooky song that plays when Krad confronts Dark for the first time on the anime, that was cool.

01-01-2006, 08:16 AM
Cool, I love DNAngel, the opening song is cool but it sounds sad. Makes me wanna cry everytime i hear it.

Wow..despite being all the way up here in the Great White North that is Ohio (at least it's white here now..it's winter!) I'll probably get to go to Metrocon this year! ^_^ I'm going to forego some of the smaller Ohio conventions this year so I can afford to come down, visit a friend and hit Metrocon with her!

If I *am* able to attend I'll be bringing:
Chrno from "Chrno Crusade"
Ed from "Fullmetal Alchemist"
and...well, not sure what else yet. ^_^

Tia
01-18-2006, 11:10 PM
You're not bringing Forte?? *pouts*

01-19-2006, 02:52 PM
...three-day con equates to three costumes, one per day.
I agree, Especially when it comes to Metrocon in particular.

I would announce my potential schedule but it is too soon and my plans could easily change especially with Mascot photoshoot still a few days off. I will have a main costume and perhaps do a group or two for the other cosplay days. [That Giant FF Group was fun last year though.]

01-19-2006, 03:26 PM
Ahhhh.
I really want to go. Seeing as I live about a hour away it is right up my alley.

But it's such a long ways away I have no idea if I am going or not!

Miyabi-
01-19-2006, 06:55 PM
You're not bringing Forte?? *pouts*

Oh I could! ^_^ I've only got Ed and Chrno planned for that one. I've only worn Forte ONCE and that's been a year ago. I guess I could bring her too and we can get pictures! ^_^

Tia
01-19-2006, 10:54 PM
That would be awesome if we could get pictures together! How about sunday? I think I have plans for friday and saturday already, but nothing for sunday.

Miyabi-
01-21-2006, 06:46 PM
Sunday would rock my socks! ^_^ I was going to wear Ed on Friday and Chrno on Saturday...or vice versa. O_o I'm staying with SeraMuun and we haven't decided when to do what cosplays yet..lol

Tia
01-22-2006, 04:07 PM
Alright, sunday it is.

01-22-2006, 06:13 PM
Will be attending once more and hopefully doing panels again, last year was a lot of fun. Too much I think. XD I'll probably be spilting my weekend between the following costumes.

FMA: Edward Elric
Castlevania: Leon Belmont
Kingdom Hearts: Unknown Roxas (aka Duel Wielding Unknown)

Not sure the days yet ~ excited though. Metro has been tons of fun for the past few years.

Hey, I have an emergency. Is anyone here going to the tryouts and lives in the Miami/Palm Beach area? I REALLY want to try out for the role of Duo Maxwell but can't drive. I am willing to help out with gas so if anyone on here is going or knows someone who is and is willing to give me a ride, I would be MOST appreciative! ^.^

Since I live 10 min from the practice area, I'm probably trying out. Won't say as who, because that'd be spoiling the fun.

Between possibly chess match and animusical, the first half of this year will be nothing but rehearsing. Geez.

But yeah, here is what I'm planning to do for Metro:

-original Mascot costume
-whatever i have to wear for chess match depending who I am casted as
-Tournament ChiChi from Dragonball (Sunday)

I have a queen of diamonds designed and have begun work on it, and I think Jessica is going to wear her queen of hearts, unless other costumes come up. It would be nice to have a group if anyone wants to take pictures with us. I know there was a group this past halloween, but I'm not sure how many of those people will have time in their costume schedules.

Pro for Kingdom Hearts-we both have swords. Con-we are leaving early to go to the smuckers stars on ice so we would have to change because our mum doesn't want us to wear the costume.

Pro for Pita-Ten cute and goes with the theme and easy to change from. Con-HOT. What do you think?¿

You've reminded me of something. For the cosplay.com meetup, should we just find the backdrop again this year? Or should we try to do a few different locations and maybe take some outside photos? The riverwalk is very pretty. So far I am thinking that it should be scheduled for friday afternoon, probably around 3 or 4 pm. Was one hour enough last time? Or do you all think it should be longer this year?

It should definitely be longer, cause last time it was a bit unorganized and people kept coming in last minute. I think we should do it outside somewhere, it's prettier and we can fit more people outside and still be out of everyone's way. Cause I felt like we were cramped inside, you couldn't see everyone in the pictures inside.

Off topic, did anyone read my comment about the Scott skit? Is anyone interested in joining us? We're trying to get enough people to make a nice rounded group and right now we only have 7 possible people (some are iffy and I'd like to have at least enough to make a group and not 3 sad looking girls feeling silly by themselves).

Looks like I WILL be able to wear Rosa Farrell to Metrocon indeed. I made the base dress yesterday. Even with all the decorations, it was not too hard. The armbands should not be too difficult. However, I do foresee the corset (which will be more of a big wide belt in my case) to be trickier. And I do not know where to start on the cape, or how long to make it. After seeing two very marvelous Rosas in person, I would like to totally outdo myself on the costume.

Not really sure which days I'm wearing what costumes but this is what I have in mind for now.

Friday: Winry Rockbell
Saturday: Yuffie Kisagari (AC)
Sunday: ? (Maybe surprise once I think about it^^; )

I'm probably going to be in a Final Fantasy group with my friends so I even might end up wearing my Yuffie costume all weekend and maybe switch off to Winry for some parts of the days^^;. So much to think about with the months going by so fast. So if anyone wants to join in the Final Fantasy group please feel free^.^! We'd love to have many people in the group:bigtu: .

Out of curiosity would you be taking a Vincent in for that group? My Vincent isnt completely AC yet but by Metrocon I plan to have it converted and refined ( Gotta get the face mask to stay up too >_< ) plus have his gun Cerberus.

There's one guest (Chris Sabbat) that I'm extremely happy will be going to the con and makes up for VA's like Vic Mignona not coming this year. Then again, I'm a DB nut and Ayame Sohma cosplayer, so it makes sense.

Shania_Nowhere
03-23-2006, 07:07 PM
I heard rumors about other VAs going but they're not on the list. And there was some new girl posting on the forums but I don't see any new girls on the guest list. >_>

Maybe they're just being evil teases and will be adding more later on. >_< *crosses fingers* Cause if Scott McNeil really isn't going, this ruins my secret plans for my birthday. -_- *sighs* He said he was going. T_T
Darn you, Mr. Metro, don't tease us like this if you are!

I actually wasn't as excited about the guest list this year. I guess it's because Vic isn't coming :(. Oh well Metrocon is still the best anime con with the most events that I know of happening:bigtu: . I actually was hoping to volunteer but I think you have to be 16 or older to do so. What stinks is that I turn 16 in July a month after the con>_<. Oh well there's always next year ^^;;;. So has anyone else been working on getting in anime idol^.^?

If Scott McNeil is indeed going I might do that skit with you guys Shania. It sounds amusing atleast. x3 I really want to, but we might be doing another skit with my group of friends; so I dunno. xD

-eyes living room- I've got so much stuff to do. All this armor sitting around and stuff xD

Costume line-up is looking good so far though, Friday I'll be dressed as a Cup-o-ramen, then Saturday the Transformed Naraku(with the dragon tails), and then on Sunday either my re-made Darcia or a mascot Kuro-neko. Whichever gets sewed first. xD

Nah, I've got plaety of other things so worry about at the moment*like getting stuff together for JACON in Artists alley^_^*

But we have something special planned for one of the possible guests that as of yet is still TBA...either that or MIA....Actually, there's a couple of things we want to do*and before people think i'm getting all stalkerish, I do know the 'guest' from other occasions.* When he was down here the last time, we were going to go to a Japanese resteraunt, but stuff came up and he couldn't make it....So we're planning on kidknaping him and taking him at metro.

There's that and some other stuff*like the costume contest with they updated today finally* that was making me nervous since I still didn't see it.

Ah well. ^_^

I was thinking about bringing a little candy and a ton of drinks (besides my usual con grub), seeing as how everyone usually gets really dehydrated, but I don't know if I should let you have sugar, Janet.

In case anyone cares, it isn't the same thing:

FAQ:

What happened to The Final Fantasy Ball?* I really liked it?* Why isn't it back?
The owner of the very well received*Final Fantasy Ball retired and did not want to continue*running it.*
Due to popular demand, METROCON is now running it's own separately themed,*story based, formal ballroom dance.

What's is*The Fantasy*Masquerade about?
The Fantasy Masquerade is a formal dance with a story told throughout the entire evening by a cast of characters.* The story can range from being on stage, out in the audience, to*video footage.* This makes the story more interactive from the audience point of view.

What is the theme of The Fantasy Masquerade?
The theme of the The Fantasy Masquerade from now on will be Fantasy oriented Fairy Tales and not a specific continuous show or game.* Each year we will be taking a Fairy Tale, reworking it,*and retelling it based on*popular animes, video game series, or crossovers from entire gener.* Expect the Masquerade's use of characters/shows/games to change qutie a bit from year to year as we use the best ones that fit the story that will be told.

Why choose a Masquerade style ball?
Masquerade balls were sometimes set as a game among the guests. The masked guests would not know whom is whom right away. This would create a type of game to see if a guest can find who is who.* Overall, the masks add to the romantic atmosphere and mystery of the night.* Usually, near the end of the evening, the master of ceremonies asks the crowd to remove their masks.

What is the dress attire?
We recommend*an Exotic mask with a Tuxedo, an Evening gown, Vintage Costume, or formalwear.* Costumes are welcome but since this is a formal dance, it would be interesting to see formal versions of anime/videogame costumes.* Masks are required for entry into the Fantasy Masquerade.* For those of you without masks, standard ones*may be purchased for a small fee outside of the ballroom.
METROCON*reserves the right to request a change of outfit if your attire is inappropriate (no jeans please) or an endangerment to the safety of yourself and others. All masquerade costumes are welcome!

Um, so why is it being promoted with mostly Final Fantasy characters at the helm? Sorry, but looking at it, it looks like another Final Fantasy 9 ball, merely with a different title and some non-FF characters in it.

The jacon masq seems to have that fantasy/generic ball style more so, since there are no casted characters at that.

-shrug- I'm observing merely, that is all.

The Fantasy Masquerade sounds interesting, granted I knew FF Ball would not be returning but maybe the new event is Metrocon's attempt to fill the void. Time will tell...

I'm wearing a simple party dress. Kind of like some thing you could wear to a wedding as a guest, but something you could wear to homecoming too. It goes down a little below the knees and it's a purplish/redish wine color, with sparkles.

Yura-sama I just looked at your gallery and saw it, that's awesome! I can imagine Miyavi's would be much nicer than Yura's for Florida's summer. Thank you. ^_^

Princess moon-Thank you! I have a lot to get finished before then, but I figured there are other conventions this year I can show it off. I'll have a few days after school ends to work endlessly to try to meet my mark for metrocon though.

Eclipseofsorrow- That's great, I would love to see the look on Seek's face when he sees someone cosplaying that. Ha, and everyone else as they go wtf? 0_o

I plan on going as long as I can find a ride and some people to room with. I live about.. 45 minutes away from the convention according to MapQuest.

I doubt I can go, though I really want to. I probably could enough cash to go, the real problem would be a way to get to Tampa.

I might go. >< It's either go to Metrocon for all three days, only go saturday, or go to disney for 4 days. My mom doesn't want to pay 500 dollars for a hotel room again. >.>

So if I do happen to go I'll will be for sure ed(cowboy bebop) on Saturday. And If I do get around to making it Bridget from Guilty Gear on one of the days. ^_^
Woooahh. I just realized Bridget is way to hard to make in less than a month. *picks something else*

You might want to be careful, I've had friends cosplay to Disney and the staff weren't too happy about it. =/ The only time they don't seem to mind is during their Halloween celebration.

Ong. I am so still alive >>

Whee, less than a month! I can't wait.
...Well. I can, seeing as how unprepared I am >.o

I think the costume schedule for me is finally set: Boogiepop (live-action version) for most of Friday, but Reno for the Ball; Reno for all of Saturday, though I may jump into my Gojyo costume for my friend's Saiyuki panal; and Reno until I can finally unbind my chest Sunday afternoon and run around as Ryoko Mitsurugi. ^^

I'll be running the Whose Line panals again this year, if anyone is interested. My friend is making me run a two hour Whose Line Saturday night, 'cause I can't run one Friday (though I am holding try-outs Friday). Hopefully it'll be better than last year.

Metrocon just keeps getting busier for me every year! But it just gets better and better, and I hope to attend it for many more year.

And I will so be active again. x.x

I'm still going as Naruto in a Nartuto group. =D I can't believe Metrocon is almost here. Sure it's a month away, but that's not a lot! I'm going to be so busy with exams and the end of the school year that the next thing I know, my friend will be on the phone saying "What time are you picking me up tommorow for Metro?"

It's to bad I don't live in Tampa any more. I use to live a few streets from the convention center. I could've just walked there and saved some gas money. Darn. But now I live thrity minutes away. =\ That's still pretty good though.

Ohh! A question! What happens at orientation?

I ran into a Leon Belmont cosplayer at JACON. She will be cosplaying Leon again on the Sunday of Metrocon. Hence I will go as Sara Trantoul on the Sunday. And hopefully will finally get to take pics of the two characters together.

Saturday I will still be Oscar and debut the wig and lenses.

Friday I will go after work mainly for the ball. I will probably wear Ellone to work, then change at the con into the formal dress.

Actually, my friends and I got a room for Thursday-Saturday night and it was only around $350... but that's the main hotel and it's booked up solid. =;.;= I hope you can make it!!

I can't wait to start sewing now that I am finished with school!!! YAY! SOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED! *dances*

METRO is definately my favorite con (closely followed by AFO and Megacon)!!

Question:

Since FX, Megacon, and Jacon all offered substantial prizes for BOS in their costume contests, is Metrocon going to follow this trend? I'm aware of AFO trying (last I heard), but have not heard if Metro will be.

Just curious, as it is always a good insentive to get people to go all out in their costumes.

By the way everyone some of my friend's and I are doing a Final Fantasy Advent Children group and so far we have Yuffie (played by me = P), Aeris, and Vincent. It would be a HUGE help if anyone here was planning on cosplaying any character from the movie that would like to be in our group^_^. I can imagine how many people will be cosplaying from the movie since it was just released in the U.S.. Let me know if you would like to join us^_^! Thankies!

I find it amusing, and a little saddening, that Scott McNeil gets all the fangirls, yet Monkey Punch gets none.

I'd fangirl for him except I'm, you know, male.
