All right...here's the thread for anyone who's interested in organizing a group of 3+ cosplayers for ACen this year.

To appear on the list, just let me know by posting here or PMing me about your group, plus the day/time & location once you have decided. If you have a separate thread for recruiting, too (either here in the ACen sub-forum or in the Seeking Cosplayers area) let me know to link to it here as well.
However, please no more recruiting on this thread - this post is only to announce group meetings so anything beyond that might start getting confusing. Please no roll calls or want ads on here from this point on. (You guys can do that on the other thread here (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=31289), tho.) Thanx for your understanding. ^_-

Also, everyone be sure to check out the experimental Musical Gathering (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=19654) even though it's not -necessarily- cosplay-related (tho it could be!) AND...Al's coming in early this year, so if you're cosplaying Thursday night (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=31650) for pre-reg, let him know if you would like some solo photos then.

kylash327: That's okay, take your time to figure it out and confer ^_- That's why I was starting this so early.

Troppy: Ah yes, a Maki....haha, well, I'm bad, but I'm not as good as she is. Did that make sense? (You guys are gonna rock, with or without a Maki anyway.)

02-04-2003, 10:46 PM
hmmm......y'know,a few of my friends are going as GGX chars,specifically Sol,Venom and Testament.Someone I know is going as somone from Sukoiden III.....I'll have to ask him who he's going as,though ^^,the name always eludes me!

Troppy
02-04-2003, 10:47 PM
LoneWolf - werent you making a Nurge/Nooj/Nuuji costume? You could do THAT for Acen if you wanted... or did you drop that idea?

Yui - aww *cuddles* I'm sure you'd get better by ACen if you wanted to be Maki though...thanks for the compliment, youre such a sweetheart.

02-05-2003, 01:37 AM
You'll probably catch me as a little Aeris walking around. ^^; Hopefully, I can have my friend dress up as a Cloud.

If there's anyone else who'd be interested in just taking a few pictures as an FF7 group, don't be a stranger! :skidude2: Anyone else cosplaying as FF7 chararacters?

TheLoneWolf
02-05-2003, 08:45 AM
Agh,I really was trying for Nurge,but the courdoroy is just TOO expensive to make a suit out of.......

Rosiel
02-05-2003, 08:54 AM
I'm currently torn between Acen and Anorth, but if I do attend Acen I could bring a Suikoden costume for the group (Seed if the armor is repaired by then, or Yuber).

How is Acen anyway? I need help to decide on which convention I will go to. X__X (Isn't Animazement the same weekend also? why are they making it so hard!)

They like to be evil, that's why. I had the same problem as you, I was torn between the two. My friends told me however that Acen is suppose to be a lot of fun!

If there's anyone else who'd be interested in just taking a few pictures as an FF7 group, don't be a stranger! Anyone else cosplaying as FF7 chararacters?
Hee, I'll have my Tifa and Vincent costume with me so I am all for pictures ^_^

Hi all,

Just to inform anyone interested, our group will be cosplaying as the Slayers again, and we'd welcome anyone who wants to take pictures of us! We've done Slayers for several years and met up with friends at the Slayers panel or masquerade for pictures. We'll be doing Slayers again, with the following characters: (you can see pics at http://www.animelibrary.org/cons/cons.html )

Lina Inverse
Gourry
Zelgadiss
Ameria
Xelloss
Jirasu/Jillas (probably ^_~ )
Filia (maybe)

All are welcome to join us! If there's a Slayers panel we'll be there, otherwise we could arrange photo ops or whatever. See you at ACEN!

Oh! From what I hear, ACen is one of the more friendlier conventions. Of course, you are on the ACen board, so our opinions might be a little biased. :D Anyway, it's my favorite Con!

If you go to Acen, I could glomp you in your Yuber costume. O_O (I looooooove Yuber! ^___^)

Yui
02-05-2003, 04:47 PM
Well, I'm overly partial to ACen, too -- not just because it's like 1/2 an hour away from where I live -- but because it's sufficiently large enough without being disorganized. It -is- very friendly, and a very good con for all ages. The hotel staff is geniunely interested and helpful and seems to let people crash down/spar/draw/eat/dance/play music/etc. wherever they feel like (just don't interfere with a wedding reception...that was the only exception o_0). There's really no dress code or weapon problems that I've ever been witness to (probably because peeps respect/fear Sailor Bubba so much). & if there's ever a confusion with programming, lines, times, etc, there's always someone to step in unexpectantly to fill in and roll on. There's a lot of staff and attendee interaction. Plus, it's become one of the "fresher-smelling" cons.

The only downs I can think of: outside restaurants are limited (There's one McDonald's and it still takes a drive to get to), parking is somewhat pricey (tho it is right across the street from the airport), and it isn't the best place for wearing wings or anything too bulky (two sets of elevators + escalators....it's a very vertical hotel)

Uh...Sorry for all those parenthesis....I had a lot of asides. To sum up, I can't unbiasedly compare the two, but I honestly don't think anyone would regret coming to ACen. ^_^

Xanthix
02-06-2003, 10:14 AM
I like ACEN too, although I haven't been to a lot of other cons, ACEN seems to have their act together. The ACEN staff is really nice and helpful, especially the fan relations/masquerade host guy Isaac Sher.

It seems they're very flexible on costumes, weapons, and props. I've seen 5-foot wings, mecha and fur suits, gunblades, and several Sanoske's with his 7-foot sword.

There was a mini-controversy last year with a certain cosplayer referred to as "Towel Rei," who cosplayed as Rei Ayanami from Evangelion, during the scene where she is interrupted coming out of the shower by Shinji. Apparently there was concern that her costume was a little too "accident"-prone, but it turned out that it was indeed secure and she was allowed to wear it.

Anyway, it's a great con. ^_^ See you all there!!

I would be interested in joining the Suikoden cosplay group, if you need a Hero II (or want another one!)

Mizuho - a friend and I are possibly going as Turk Vincent and Lucrecia. ^.^ I was already Vincent Valentine...but that was...on..Halloween...a few years ago. -.-;;

Anyway - Cowboy Bebop group! :: dances :: We have to find a way to make our friend bald for a day... :: shifty eyes :: And...for the ultimate fun...to harrass all the Spike's there.

Celine,have you decided on going to anime north or ACen?
If ACen,are you doing King or not?

Troppy
02-15-2003, 10:22 PM
hey, Ballad of Fallen Angels Faye! BEST. OUTFIT. I was going to make it, but came to terms with the fact that my face shape makes me look too young to be Faye... I MUST find you at ACen. Many obsessive pictures will be taken, lol...

as for me, my cosplay plans still stand. Richie on Friday, X-2 Gunner Yuna Saturday. WE NEED MORE X-2'ers!

Yui
02-19-2003, 10:03 PM
Looks like Star Ocean 2 / EX / BlueSphere shall be a go at Acen as well.

I will be organizing members of the SO2 and Suikoden ACen groups (as well as upcoming Otakon? GGX and j-rock groupings that I'm in charge of) via my journal in conjunction with the boards. Anyone who is going to be in any of these, please PM me and confirm.

Celine
02-20-2003, 12:13 AM
Hohoho, maybe I will finish EX Celine for ACen. That outfit doesn't look too hard, and I already have the wig... ^_^ I'm not 100% of any groups I'll be doing, so I don't have anything useful to PM you about yet!

Costumes for ACen:

Jason = Yuber from Suikoden III
Lilli = Sera from Suikoden III

Jason = Ernest from Star Ocean/Blue Sphere
Lilli = Opera from Star Ocean/ Blue Sphere

:3 Waaai wai, I'll finally get to make Opera :3 Now.... If only we knew someone who could be Precis... *looks pointedly at Yui's niece, lol*

Mreh, decided to have Opera and Ernest be more important than Aya and Youji. Cause I know I'd get tired of hearing, "Ooooh! Aya and Youji! ...Where are Omi and Ken?" Hehe ^^;

Edit: I do believe I'll be keeping Jason and myself out of the GGX/GGXX cosplays, though ^^; Hehe, know anyone who wants to buy a Millia Rage costume? :3

Yui
02-20-2003, 01:47 PM
ah War of Genesis....yes, someday...not this year, tho. Eep.

Hmm, I have a feeling I won't get to BlueSphere Dias for Acen. Just good ol EX. Let's see, fourth time for that costume, tho, so I promise to fix my ghetto gloves, finally. (I'll be taller too, heheh...)

Um, and Lilli, if you get behind on anything, just let me know. I'll help....just so long as it isn't in the hotel. Actually, probably even if it is. That's become a con tradition. ^_^
(& Let's see, Bri's already on for May and she's also our Myao for Rhapsody. Um, and I wanted her to be Lirin, too, but I have a feeling I won't even do any Saiyuki at ACen, so we're not gonna rush it. Um, plus I promised her a Mana at some point as well. But yeah, Precis would be aweome for her, too. We gotta make her bunches of costumes before she gets bigger than me O_o)

Hey! Nothing wrong with that. :) You can never have too many Clouds. ^__^ Hope to see you there!

Lilli
02-20-2003, 02:28 PM
._. Hehe, no Saiyuki for ACen prolly. Just cause I hafta remake Hakkai and Jeep, and blargh, that's too much for this lazy kitty. Hehee, hey, if she grows enough, she can have my Mana costume? :3 O-hohoho... She'd probably have to be 40 before it would fit her. *sits in a corner and sobs*

Yui
02-20-2003, 03:13 PM
::slaps Lilli around:: pull yourself together there girl. And yeah, Gojyo's a good packagable one for me, so I don't wanna agree to do Saiyuki at a con that I should be bringing all my bulky stuff instead.

Also, we can probably assume there will be much Final Fantasy-ness, but I'll put down FF7 just to be all official.

Lilli
02-20-2003, 04:41 PM
T_T *snifflesnifflesniffle* Gooooooomen naaasaaaiiii Yuuuii-chaaaaan *glomps and sniffles s'more*

:3 We ought to make Breezey a Mana costume... Hmmm... Rig up a way to put my wings on her... I'll bring some fabric :3 I've proven it can be done overnight, muahahahaha!! OOOo-HOHOHOHOHO!! ^o^


Edit: NOOOO!! *smacks herself with a rolled up newspaper* Bad Lillikittie ._.;; Hehe, I'm getting toooo ambitious again. Again again again. I gotta finish what I've got in line first, then I can think such thoughts :3 Hehe, Yui-chan help keep me in line, onegai? ^^;;

Yeah, the first post I made will be edited to include new groups (and whoever's responsible for them) - so everyone please check that first one for the updates. If you have a new group to get on the list, pm or reply here. Also, if anyone is organizing their actual members on a different thread or in their journal (Suikoden and SO2 listings are in mine ^_^), post here too to let everyone know.

Yui
03-03-2003, 09:40 PM
As long as you got at least two people, you can advertise for more members. (Once you have at least three, it's definitely a group ^_-)

I'm also updating the list now with the days of groups, so whenever you decide on that, let me know to add it.

Erika here.

Damn, this'll be my fourth year at ACen. I still need to find a place to sleep....

As for costume plans, I'm making an Angel from KoF and bringing along my Juclesia from Magna Carta. Depending on how much time I have [as I've got to get the first issue of Sundog done for ACen..], I might also make a Queen of Vengeance Urd....but we'll see....we'll see. And of course, Al, your costume will be done. When have I not been dependable? This is the third you've commissioned....*grins*

Oh, LoneWolf, I hope you won't mind if I join your KoF group, altho' please, please, please don't hold a photoshoot in the middle of the day on Saturday.....make it Friday evening or something like that because I work at my art table and can't leave unless someone watches it for me.

URD!!! Especially a non-standard Urd! If you could make her, that would be so spiffy. Since I'm shadowing someone, I'm also going to ACen, so I'm bringing Peorth along, and perhaps "Devil in Miss Urd" Urd. ^_^

Is there any interest in an Ah! My Goddess gathering out there?

I think I speak for Lone Wolf when I say it'll be great to have you in our KOF group. (He'll probably start planning a K9999 costume now! :rolleyes: ) We were planning to do the cosplay on Friday anyways, so that works out perfectly! When are you planning to break out your Juclesia costume? He's planning to go as Calintz and I know that would make a great photo shoot as well....Maybe I'm speaking too much on his behalf....I'll just go away now....:walkoff:

Whee-ha. I'm looking forward to this KoF group. It's not often I get to be sexy and irreverent.

Juclesia would be a Saturday thing. I'm not sure that two people a group doth make, but pictures would be quite cool.

If I did an Urd, it would almost have to be Sunday. My schedule is too hectic for me to be changing in and out of costumes, so I wear a total of three, max, unless someone has a special request and is willing to watch my table for me while I change. There's always A-Kon tho'... When were you planning to do this?

Eeep. No hurry, no pressure! Sunday is an unknown quantity of a day for me since that's when I pack up and fly back to the left coast. I don't have my costuming sked worked out since I've only decided now to attend ACen, but if you do decide to do Urd, I'll try my best to toss on Peorth on Sunday. But again, no pressure or anything :)

Ah yes,but two is what I need to advertise for more members as says yui:
"As long as you got at least two people, you can advertise for more members. (Once you have at least three, it's definitely a group ^_-)"
Anyways,YAY! I find someone else cosplaying another char from an obscure Korean rpg ^^

>Whee-ha. I'm looking forward to this KoF group. It's not often I get to be sexy and irreverent.

Damnit,damnit,damnit! Now I'm torn between K' and K9999 even MORE,see-ing as K' HAS to be in the photoshoot...well,I'll cross that bridge when i get to it....

Uh...dude... you can just cosplay them both on Friday or you could do K' sometime on Saturday. This goes with the territory of cosplaying many characters at the same time. Just make sure to get as many photo ops as possible, and then move on to the next costume. Remember, if the Eurobeat King can do it.....so can you! :bigtu:

Hmm....that's what I'm doing, the whole quick costume swap thing...I'll probably bring just about every cosplay I own and see what happens. Of course, ACen to me means like seven closets and multiple close-by people with hauling vehicles.

Anyway...um, I'm going to add the 'hopeful' groups to the bottom of the list, so it might generate additional interest there for you guys.

Um, anyway, consider me a guaranteed member of the DoA group, and most likely the AMG (doing Morgan) and Wolf's Rain people (probably doing Toboe) will have another member. Don't know if that changes their group status but anyway . . . ^^

And yeah, I'm with Yui; ACen is close for me so I'll probably bring nearly every costume I have. ^^;

Erika: I always trust you. ;) And I know how you don't like to give out progress-reports on commisions, so I just leave it up to you. hehe Ooooh.. a KOF Angel, huh? Jackie (Chibi Vega) had a nice one at Katsucon, and she'll be wearing it again for KOF at A-kon 2 weeks after A-cen. So if you have yours, I'll take some nice pics of your costume and then hers. 2 Angels in 2 weeks! :D

KOF group sounds nice, although I wasn't planning to wear King (or King 2000) until A-kon, but if there's a big-enough gathering for that, I could bring it. Incidentally, the costume that Erika's making for me could fit in with a Capcom vs. SNK gathering, so whoever is organizing the get-together could make it a CvS group to encourage Capcom characters to join in also. :)

Speaking of AMG! Someone should do the Black Belldandy (evil?) that I saw a figurine for, since that has YET to be done..

Rpd_girl: I liked your Vanessa at Katsu, and look forward to seeing it again at A-cen. Seras Victoria from Hellsing sounds also good.. was that version the one you said with the hole in her chest? hehe That'll be a first.. ;)

I really haven't decided on too many costumes myself for A-cen, since A-kon is where I'm going to bring a lot of costumes (3 of them are requests) so for A-cen I might wear just a few and concentrate on pictures. I'll reply again sooon.

Ready? Set? GO!
Right,a Capcom Vs Snk group should take shape,ne?
One little catch I'd like to put,though.If we're going for this,I'd like to have at least 7 Capcom cosplayers before I convert the KoF to a Capcom Vs Snk group,ok?
So,Yui,I suppose you might wanna add Capcom vs Snk to the Hopefuls?
P.S:Mind adding Magna Carta there too?

Erika here.

Considering the only fighting game I own is Guilty Gear [but hey, I just got my first console, a PSX, a few months ago...so forgive me for not playing all the games I cosplay from....], I'm pretty damn ignorant when it comes to them....is Angel even in Capcom vs. SNK, or because she falls under the umbrella of belonging to one or the other company she counts?

And of course no pressure. *laughs* This early on? Hell, I'm pro'lly not gonna even start my new costumes till late April. They're simple, I'm fast [Juclesia was done in three days the week of Katsucon and I left on Thursday for it...], and there's a lot more I need to worry about, such as commissions and art. Urd would only take me a day, so we'll see what happens. I'm anal about most commitments, but cosplay groups, etc..? Anything can happen.

You're right in saying that Angel dosen't come under Capcom Vs. SNK as much as she does under KoF.But,frankly speaking,Capcom vs. SNK is practically Capcom vs. KoF ^^.Anyways,there's plenty of time to sort out all the details,so let's see what happens,ne?

Okay...it's on hopefuls now. And Magna Carta was already there, silly.
Hmm...Xenogears isn't my show to run, but I think I'd prefer Saturday, maybe morning. So if -you- have any suggestions, I can resechedule my groups around it anyway.

My world does not revolved around the molten core of practically, but of course we'll see. *grins*

Hey Al, guess who's also bringing her Angel to A-Kon, which is two weeks after ACen? It ain't Margaret Thatcher. I don't know if I'll wear it Saturday tho'. Everyone in the Magna Carta group needs to figure out when we're doing it, but it's likely a Saturday thing, and I couldn't make the KoF photoshoot anyway because I'm one of the lucky bastards who actually got a table at A-Kon....[I believe]
Oh, and could you send me your shoe size and the dimensions of the sword so I can get working? I'd like to start that in the next few weeks.

Automaton? *laughs* People often tell me they're surprised at the number of things I manage to accomplish in a day, but mostly it's just that I've made so many different costumes that I rarely encounter anything that's a challenge. I *would* challenge myself, but challenges cost money..... *looks over at her Judy Shakbari sketches*

[semi-related aside]
Heh...yeah, but I might want to actually talk. (I've seen a Larva do it this way before - looked pretty good, too.) Then again, might be a good excuse not to talk. I suppose I could just make something once the way it was intended. Now I must muse on the rest of the materials, tho.
Eep, but let me know if you ever come across a good fansub of it...I'm watching it raw and only had a vague monologue of what's going on. O_o
And I thought there was someone else interested, but maybe I'm thinking of for a different con?
[/aside]

Anyway, the more I think about Xenogears, the more I think it should perhaps not be Saturday (even, as I said, it was not my group exactly)...for I am trying to set up my groups around my niece's con time (I need her for GGX, Star Ocean and maybe Suikoden) and she probably will not be able to skip school on Friday...and tho I kinda didn't want to use all my 'old' stuff on the big cosplay day, Friday may be a good time for me to make room for Xenogears and Malice Mizer-ness And who knows...maybe even Wolf's Rain, huh?
I put entirely too much thought into such things.

I'm trying to convince my friend Jackie (Chibi Vega) to bring HER Angel (she wore it at Katsu) to bring it to A-kon so I could get pics of both of you together.

I'm not sure about KOF, since I may be busy the weekend just taking lots of pictures and wearing a few costumes. I wasn't planning on bringing my King costume to A-cen since I'll be wearing her at A-kon, unless I bring King and Erika wants to wear it (and be the 4th lucky girl to wear it. ;)) So I'm not sure, but if I bring King or Kim Jae Hoon we can get a KOF group going. I'm just not going to be the one to form it at A-cen. :thumbsup:

Well, psythe made us all the lovely banners with our respective characters so we look all official-like. Um, we have over 30 some cosplayers involved right now (+ other representations of some of the Gears/monsters/NPCs) and we're accepting duplicates for our group, too. It's a bit different from just a big photo shoot as we're actually planning out some activities (and food) Anyway, this is a bit OT here, so please see the thread there:

Oh, don't be like that. Nothing's overdone if you love it, are comfortable wearing it, and have fun. Some people do go to cons to do things other than cosplay. (I personally don't understand such things, but I hear it's true... ^_-)

Um, however, there probably will be Trigun by default at any given time, just as there will be your staple Sailor Moon and FF characters. If you would like to "meet-up" though for a photo op or for a masquerade skit at a particular time, do let me know, and I'll put it down on the list.

wow, that's...a bit mean...if someone loves a character, they should be able to do it no matter what. I don't mind if someone expresses their opinion against a certain cosplay group, but to be all scream-y about it and not giving any logical reasoning behind it... yeah. please don't. x_x

I personally like Trigun...and I'm a FF cosplay fan. When it's done well, people WILL notice...AND there's always a lot of attention from non-cosplayers and anime/video game newbies that love to see what they're familiar with.

Yes, you should! It's really tiring to keep on making new ones. Although I have a feeling I will wear that particular costume once, suffer pure torture, and say NEVER AGAIN. (Hmmm reminds me of Seed.)

Hmm...yes, but it has nothing to do with the topic though. This is a listing for groups that people -are- doing, not a thread to ask permission to do a particular series or a poll to see if something is overdone.

Besides, what if someone started complaining that Wolf's Rain is too easy (well except in my case...) or something along those lines? I know that it wouldn't probably stop you, but it does take some of the fun out of it, perhaps subconsciously. As, inversely, people threatening to stalk you down at a con to glomp you before you've even ever finished the costume kinda fuels you in a positive way (tho I guess depends on how stalkerly they sound.) So no stealing anyone's thunder - at least not here. Do have your opinion but find an appropriate place to place it.

...Or I shall withhold Darcia definitely from ACen. Mwahaha. :p

I'm tossing myself in as another DOA 2 character, although I'm not sure how many people that makes.

I am in a small group doing Otaku no Video. So far we have a Kubo, Tanaka, Sato(In her overalls) and Fukuhara(animator style). Any one else that wants to join in is welcome. We will most likely just be wandering around saterday and sunday.

Yui
04-10-2003, 04:30 PM
Okay, LoneWolf...you just work hard on that choas then for Otakon. Um, my Kreli is not working to my satisfaction...I thought it was close to being done, and everything decided not to work out properly all of a sudden. But I gotta finish him for ACen cuz we can't have Sophia wandering around all by herself. ^_-

For DoA...there might be a group by now...um, I lost track tho, so somebody confirm that.

& Shine-Chan, your group's on the list.

04-10-2003, 06:48 PM
sefie_tilmitt: yay! Another DOA cosplayer. :)

I started a DOA ACen Gathering (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=8679) thread, but it seemed as if there were no takers so I sorta gave up.

Um... if Ayaka is able to wear her Ayane we we'll have enough for a group! :D

uwaaah, I'm a bit late in actually reading this thread ^_^
anouuu..is anyone interested in joining in with my Angel Sanctuary group? No skit involvement required(unless you want to..if so, PM me!) but a nice big photoshoot would be absolutly splendid! I've got a pretty nice group put together so far, but if anyone's familiar with AS(Rosiel-Sempai? :D :D) there are a bakers dozen of characters. Even clones are fine, I just think it'd be fun to get together and cause mass (controlled) chaos!

*deposits two cents into jar and retreats back into burrow*

Rosiel
04-13-2003, 12:28 AM
I'm currently horribly lacking in cosplay motivation (I have a lapful of purple patent leather and I am trying to pretend it's not there la la la) so .hack is not going to happen in time for Acen (Sorry Ayaka! ;__; I hope you'll wear Shugo at another convention so we can take pictures!).

If there is enough of a WK group going, I might bring Schuldich, otherwise, other than a Ramirez (of course!) I'll grab whatever tickles my fancy at the moment I pack. ^_^

> Rosiel-Sempai?

You called? ^____^

Ayaka
04-13-2003, 01:17 AM
No prob, Rosiel. ^^ I'm sure Shuugo will go other places with me. I feel your pain re: time crunch. Hopefully I'll be conscious at ACen, in spite of finals!

oo ooo oo! Can I grab a feather and tickle your fancy into bringing a rosiel cosplay? *bow!* It'd be awsome if you could pop in for a few minutes for our photoshoot! (twill be on saturday, sometime during the afternoon ^_^)

ZiggyB
04-13-2003, 04:33 PM
Hey Yui!

We've got a Dead or Alive group together. :D Weeee!

We've pretty much decided it's on a Saturday, but still talking about time and place. It's an open group so clones are most welcome.

Rosiel
04-14-2003, 10:59 AM
> I feel your pain re: time crunch.

My brain had not computed there was only one month to Acen and one month and a half to Akon. I am trimming my costume plans left and right in a panic. I think mych Yuber-wearing will ensue. X__X

> Can I grab a feather and tickle your fancy into bringing a rosiel cosplay? *bow!*

*is tickled* *laughs* Bringing a Rosiel means lugging the huge unwieldy box'o'wings with me... so I would bring it if you need a Rosiel, because I know how happy it makes me when I get all the characters for a big group together, otherwise, the odds would be rather low.

Ayaka
04-14-2003, 11:15 AM
I will be crying like a small child once I realize how little time I have until AX . . . lol. I happen to know several people who only go to ACen and are huge Suikoden fans, though, and will be very happy to see your Yuber!

Hikaru, I may as well say, I'm seriously considering a vol 13/14 Katou (white shirt with big black cross) for ACen, because something else I was planning may not go down and I could put it together very fast cause I just found the perfect wig. ^^; I know he's not recognizable, and I probably won't have the cross rod with me, but letting you know anyway. ^^

Irvy
04-14-2003, 12:42 PM
Wow, only a month left! I can't believe it! o__o!
I fear to ask how far a long people are. I hope my commissions come in soon, grah! ><

Hikaru0
04-14-2003, 05:48 PM
>so I would bring it if you need a Rosiel,

awwwe! ;_; (knows how it is with the box o' wings x.x) there is a guy who says he's doing a Rosiel costume...however he's been bouncing back and forth between saying yes, and saying his life sucks and he doesn't want anything to do with it, that I have no idea what to think anymore x.x
But I wouldn't want to trouble you anyhows! ^_^ thankies for replying Rosiel-Sempai! XD I might hunt you down and glomp you just for kicks though *tee hee*

>I'm seriously considering a vol 13/14 Katou (white shirt with big >black cross) for ACen,
UWAAAAAI!!! We don't have a Katou!!!!!! If you'd hang with us, that would kick much squirrel tail!!!!!
If you really wanted the cross staff, I could make you one ^_^ I have tons of plastic rods from an old tent of my sisters. I made my cross for Alexiel last year from it. I wouldn't even charge you! *is such a pushover*

Ayaka
04-14-2003, 06:19 PM
Heheh ^^ What day(s) are you doing AS? I may still be able to make the rod, I'd like to give it a shot, cause I haven't had much chance to make accessories for costumes yet. *wants to pry self away from sewing machine lol* But if not, I'll give you a shout. ^^

Hikaru0
04-14-2003, 11:12 PM
we're doing Saturday as the designated AS day ^_^ wai wai! I'm so happy there will be a Katou! *happy dance!* XD want to be in a Skit too? *pushing it pushing it* j/k...sorta. ^_^
and ok! I'll hop right on it if you decide you can't/don't want to make the staff, and either snail it to ya or bring it to acen ^_^

*skitters off with a trail of happy cherubs*

Ayaka
04-15-2003, 02:35 AM
Okay, cool, Sat should be fine. ^^ lol well if you're doing a skit . . . I have someone I *might* be doing one with but I haven't heard from her, so if you're doing it, you can probably persuade me to join with no problem lol. (I really want another onstage experience before AX . . .)

Yui
04-16-2003, 10:32 PM
Oh...sorry about my absence there...I was getting overwhelmed from making too many cosplays at once...so I defaulted into playing again Suikoden I & III in a daze...heh, and then I thought I better stop cuz I was getting overstimulated by that, after realizing I could probably survive the rest of my life cosplaying only from Suikoden. ^_-* So I thought I better see how everything was going on here.

eeeyeah...so DoA's up on the big list (finally) and I put AS on there too - is that right, everyone?

> But I wouldn't want to trouble you anyhows!

It's no trouble. I would not mind dragging the wings for a good cause. ;)

Yes, do come and say hello! Although, about the glomp, please warn before you jump, I've almost been bowled over a few times. ^_^

Sorry if someone already posted about this, but a couple of my friends and myself will be cosplaying as Digi Charat characters on Friday and Saturday. I'm going to be Dejiko and my friends are going to be Pyoko and Rabi~en~Rose. If any other Digi Charat cosplayers would like to get together we'd love to. ^_^

04-22-2003, 10:45 PM
I think that the GG(x)(xx) group would like to meet on saturday morning/afternoon. ^_^ We have at least 5 or 6 people so far, and I think that it's pretty much an open cast.

04-25-2003, 02:41 AM
Vash- if you wanted to wear your Vincent costume on Saturday, I have a few people coming as FF7 characters, and we'd be more than happy to take some pictures with you on that day if we can find you! :D

LoneWolf and Yui-- what days are you wearing your Xenogears costumes? I'm thinking a good day would be Friday... Too bad we don't have many more Xeno-people going to ACen. I wish we could borrow some of the people from the XenOtakon group and bring them with us here. :p

Yui
04-25-2003, 04:00 PM
I wish so, too (especially cuz LW abandoned us!) um, so it might just be us two ^_^* I'm still scouting around, tho, just to be sure cuz there are a lot of ACen cosplayers who for some reason don't come here. But Friday'll be good, I think. Yeah, even though nobody will recognize us obscure characters... ^_-

Yeah, and FF7 peeps, I knew there were at least two groups going on - anyone have a day yet &/or are you guys combining?

04-28-2003, 05:46 PM
I am heading an Inu-Yasha fan discussion panel on Saturday at 10am and am attempting to put together a photo shoot for any Inu-Yasha cosplayers either before or after the panel (most likely after, but am needing to see when the majority would be available).

In addition to a general photo of any and all IY cosplayers, I am going to have a separate photo taken of any Inu-Yasha and Kagome cosplayers who would like to participate in a mass "osuwari" ("sit" for the people who have only seen the dub). We'll have a countdown and all the Kagome's will osuwari their respective Inu-Yasha's at one time. I'll be sure to have my video camera handy, too, since this is an action shot and stills just won't capture the moment at its best.

My own group has a minimum of 7 cosplayers, so we have the 3 person minimum covered. I am also active on a number of Inu-Yasha mailing lists on Yahoo and know that there will be quite a few other members planning on attending the photo session.

I'm not sure what else to do for this. I'm relatively new to this. I've cosplayed before but never got involved in forums, etc. regarding it.

Urd-chan

Yui
04-28-2003, 07:42 PM
You group is added to the list. ^_^ I just put after the panel as your time, but if you change your mind, just let me know. If you want to, you're welcome to start another thread (either in the general Seeking Cosplayers forum or here in the ACen one) for recruiting more people, too.

Yui
04-29-2003, 03:43 PM
If anyone knows of any other big group shoots (especially from mailing lists/cosplay groups) - even if you aren't running it yourself - please let me know so the list can be as complete as possible. I put down cp.com shoot as Saturday afternoon - just as a guess based on past cons (probably 2pm right?)
I'll be updating the list here on the boards up til late on the 14th, and then I'll post print-outs at the con on the bulletin boards there.

Hi, I am part of Shine-Chan's Otaku-no-Video group, member costume Tanaka. There may be a problem with us getting to ACen this year. Due to a recently discovered medical problem, I may be in treatment on the weekend of the convention. We will make a decision on the 13th on whether we will be able to attend, and I will post that decision immediately.

Bluesummers
05-03-2003, 03:05 PM
Well...I'm looking to put together a Cowboy Bebop photoshoot. We have about eight people in it so far, thus covering the three people deal needed. I'm also opening to grab any other Bebop characters I see and drag them along with our large mafia group.... ^.^ Since...I've heard from this forum and the one at the official ACen website forum that there are lots of other Bebop cosplayers.

We have -- Vicious, Spike (whose wearing the trenchcoat Friday, the regular blue suit Saturday, and showing off the sombrero and potato sack thing from Session 1 Sunday...), Julia (Real Folk Blues outfit and another Jules in apron outfit), Faye (Ballad of Fallen Angels outfit -- wasn't someone else doing that too?), Lin, Gren, Edward, and Electra. We have another group member, but she can't decide on which character she wants to be. -.-

Anyway...I guess that's all. ^.^;;

Luna Selene
05-03-2003, 03:10 PM
I'm also a part of this Bebop group (Real Folk Blues Julia), and I just wanted to mention we'll be in our costumes all day that Saturday ^_^ Bluesummers just forgot to mention that part. We just need an exact time to show up now...any ideas here?

Yui
05-03-2003, 03:21 PM
Okay, Bebop's up. It's another all-day one, huh? ^_- Let me know if you guys have an official photo time or anything, too.

Yui
05-03-2003, 09:25 PM
I'm adding ACen ML groups as they get finalized - anything that originates there is noted with (ACen ML) after it - how creative, huh? ^_- That's just so people don't scramble around wondering where the thread on that was exactly. I also urge you guys to check out the ACen forum at the official ACen site because there's some group-forming talk there that hasn't yet been brought up here. (Why can't everyone just use one forum? Ack.)

TheLoneWolf
05-04-2003, 12:26 AM
Ne,Yui......you should cosplay KoF characters too!

Yui
05-04-2003, 12:52 AM
Hey, you've got a sizable group already and I tend to gravitate towards the more obscure anyway. Plus you already got me for Wolf's Rain. Plus I have to really like what I cosplay from and I've never played any KoF (okay, maybe once, I think for a few minutes. Remember, I'm an RPG addict. Or at least a 3D fighter. GGX was a fluke fav.) Um, plus ACen...nay the rest of this year...and most of the next year...is booked. Until cons turn into week-long expos, I simply do not have enough waking hours. And I'm turning up the insanity level on costume construction (I'm actually going to take plastic molding classes for armor-making and such) so I will need requests at least 18 months in advance until otherwise noted. Yes...the only exception is that I will politically agree to be in some groups if I may then own your soul for a future Psycho le Cému mass. Um. Lalala. The end.

Oh yeah, well that was a nice semi-tangent. Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what exactly is up with the ACen site MB, and I just get this impression peeps don't know what they're doing there. So I'm not guessing on groups - I'll just wait until people who have groups contact me instead of trying to get people inspired at the prospect. (I don't why I'm so passionate about this, really. It's not like most of these groups I'm a part of. I'm just ACen obsessed, I guess.)

05-07-2003, 05:06 PM
Okay, well like I've said before, unless I go into a dilusional state due to lack of air or muscle-freeze-up, I probably can't hold out in Darcia for more than a few hours (if that long....we'll see ^_-**), so don't feel like WR is all day Saturday or anything. So you could always do another group later on in the day.

Anybody who has not yet chosen a temporal coordinate for your group meeting, please consider doing so. ^_^

Luna Selene
05-13-2003, 01:15 PM
Okay...since the rest of the group cannot make up their mind of where to meet, and this is my first ACen so I don't really know the location that well..I think I'm going to take the suggestion that there was a totem pole or something near the elevators/escalators to meet, at least for early Saturday morning...Bah. Bluesummers, if you have a problem with this, just post here. People just need to know where to take pictures of us! So...it's my best guess. So as of right now, The Bebop group will be meeting at the top of the elevators/escalators, near the tall pole, Saturday morning.

Bluesummers
05-14-2003, 06:51 AM
The tall pole, eh? ^.^;; That shouldn't be too hard to find. :: shifty eyes :: This is my first time at ACen anyway..meep. So Luna-san.. :: bows :: It has been decided.

Hi

I'm new to the board...I just have a question

How did you did you know who I cosplay at ACen, Yui?

I went as Tira from Bakuretsu/Sorcerer Hunters and early on Sat morning as Kagome from Inuyasha.

~Lilly-chan~.~

Yui
05-20-2003, 03:10 PM
Um...I'm psychic?
Yeah, I was just making the list based on the info collected from the Acen MB, ML and comments around here. It was sorta coherant and somewhat helpful. ^_- Thankz to everyone for cooperating with my mad need for organization. Some of our groups actually met on time and really rocked. :bigtu:

So far it's you and me, SupremeKai. Oh, and my friend who wants to be Youko Kurama. I'm trying to talk A J into coming from California, he would be (Suichi) Kurama if he did. But, it is a little early yet, plenty of time to recruit.

I'm surprised there's not more YYH cosplayers, considering how well-rated it has been running on CN.

Grandia II and Legend of Dragoon are both almost definites. Wild ARMs 3, Suikoden 3, GGXX, Saiyuki, Malice Mizer, Dir en Grey, Berserk, Chaos Legion - any are probable at this point, and so I'm not locking in my choices just yet. (Too many cosplays, not enough cons...)

You never learn, do you Yui? ;)
Also,You're up for Magna Carta too,Alisa?
Awesomeness! :bigtu:
Magna Carta, Guilty Gear X/XX, Vampire Hunter D, Wolf's Rain, King of Fighters/SNK, and maybe Castlevania?

Oh yeah...the character designs are just waay too awesome to let them just pass by. I want to dress up as either Felicia or Adora. I think I am leaning more towards Felicia though.

Chould you add Excel Saga to to list of hopefuls? I know a few people (includeing me) who might be going as characters from that series.

And if we're going to do Final Fantasy. Are we just going to group the series into one. Like inclued those from FF7, FF8 ect into one large group. Or is it going to be induviual games?

It is for this upcoming convention in 04'. That is awesome that you have a Ryomou Shinmei costume. If we collect more people I will definately bring my Ukitsu costume.

Oh and for those FFX-2 cosplayers. I have my Theif Rikku costume nearly complete. Need a wig, and it's done. Lol, I didn't realize that I was going to be getting about 70% of her outfit at Abercrombie.

TurtleJill

As Ziggy has implemented at the Katsucon grouping list, individual group-sorting-out threads are linked to on the main list on the first page. Please don't recruit on this thread! This thread is long enough as it is. Only post in here if I should add new possible groups or edit day/time/place when you have decided. We don't need to know every costume every person might be bringing for the purposes of the listing.

Also, I'm advising people to not sign up for groups until their costumes are completed. If you're interested, but unfinished, consider yourself a tenative member - but just remember that no one should feel obligated to rush a costume and get overly stressed ^_^;

To break up some confusion...I am *NOT* hosting a FFX-2 group this year. That was *last* year. I got PMed about it, and I was wondering if anyone else was arranging around something that didn't exist... o_0

I'm Wedding Yuna this ACen Saturday, so...I suppose I'm not really X-2...but I'd still love pics with some other Yunies, even if shunned by the new age class-change system. XD

Richii
02-02-2004, 01:02 AM
yeah I realize I'm a little late in the game here. Uhhh I've never been to ACEN and I dont think I get the system...Are their actually like "gatherings?" god im kind of confused. I saw the list on the first page, do you all add times as it gets closer to the con or something? Well anyway, I guess I wont worry about it, I'll just wonder in costume. lol

But if there are gatherings and such is anyone thinking about cosplaying from kingdom hearts? I have an Ansem that I've taken like NO decent pictures in. :P

Yui
02-02-2004, 05:50 PM
This cosplay group idea is not unique to ACen. Most mid-sized to huge cons have lists like this now. Usually, it is just an opportunity to meet up with people costuming from the same series and have an opportunity to take group photos, recreate scenes, etc. How long you all hang out is up to you, but it's basically an opportunity to meet with other fanatical people who (obviously) share your interests.
Yes, nearer to the con, actual days and times are picked out. At the current hotel, most of the meeting is done at the really big central sculpture thing, but if the meeting is anywhere besides that default place, that will be noted as well.

Richii
02-02-2004, 10:19 PM

Who's leading this group?

How many people are gonna be in it?

And I know this won't be accurate(because some cosplayers don't go to cosplay.com), but can we have a rough list of how many Yuna's, Rikku's and Paine's there's gonna be? I dunno how this relates to anything, I just wanna see the number of people obsessed with something I am :-)

AllStarAlice
03-28-2004, 05:35 PM
There is no "leader". You'll never know how many people are going show up dressed in FFX-2 costumes, just cuz of the reason you stated, there are people that don't come to cosplay.com or the acen forums. The group isn't a set size, it's just "come to the con, come to the "FFX-2 group gathering photoshoot" and take pictures".

If you want to talk with other people about being in a small group together then by all means go ahead.

Yui
03-28-2004, 06:15 PM
Okay people..I got a few questions..


So far, all that I have been given is that there will be enough FFX-2 people running around at any given time to compose a group. No one has yet to take the initiative to give a time/date/place.
Feel free to start up a new thread in the ACen sub-forum to help plan anything further on this, and I'll link your planning thread from the main page of this listing. (This goes for any other groups that have been thrown out there without a time yet, too.)

03-29-2004, 05:47 PM
yosh. ok kiddies, I suppose I'll be grand pooba-ing an AS photoshoot again. It will be tradition! yay! (and I'll be DAMNED if that 6-inch rule is going to make me not cosplay Alexiel. >O ) The meeting place will be at the funky fountain off of the lobby, NOT at the spiral statue. The reason behind this is that it'll be less crowded ^^ As to where the shoot happens, that depends on how many people show up. If a lot come, it'll be outside, or in front of the funky fountain (depending on traffic in that area)
I'm slating the time for sometime around 12:30-1:00, so it won't interfere with Masqurade sign-ups. (we had this problem last year. It was a tad psychotic and people were everywhere and not where they should've been. Poor Ayaka-San who was the only one there at the right time in the right area ;_; )
Anywho, I will be Alexiel yet again, so look for the 1.5 (as someone on the acen forum put it) size wings. I'll probably be carrying them until the photoshoot.

04-01-2004, 01:30 AM
Okay, the re-sum it up:

Thursday = individual photo shoots provided by Al as a special pre-con activity (ACen doesn't "start" until Friday) - please see his thread for more info.

(sometime) Saturday (1-2 pm tenative) = the everybody from cosplay.com big-group shot, doesn't matter your costume. (This didn't happen last year....I'm not sure why O_o but it's become sorta a staple at other cons, early afternoon Saturday)

& The 12:30 meeting mentioned directly above is for Angel Sanctuary cosplayers who are interested.

Please see the very first page of this thread for more info on -any- of this or groups to come (and when you figure out for FFX-2 meeting times, I'll post that up there as well.)

Per Eurobeat King in the C^3 forums regarding your topic:

Admin hasn't announced if he plans to have a cosplay.com photoshoot (the BIG group photoshoot) so unless he posts here (or the Anime Central forum on c.com) before Tuesday (when he leaves for Chicago) we won't be having a cosplay.com gathering at A-cen this year.
