Ahh, Melchior, I just realized... I talked to you for a few seconds on Saturday. I was the pink cat girl, Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew, and you told me you'd just seen some of the show. I loved your costume- your eyes looked so cool ^_^

Ringo
07-29-2002, 01:13 AM
Yeah for Mew Mew cosplay!! *points to her location* Your costume was very cute. ^_^

W00t. Nice pics, Melchoir. Wasn't the Chocobo girl the cutest?

Melchior
07-29-2002, 09:56 AM
Haha, ya I especially loved her little dance and cheer. Very neat =)

And mara, your Ichigo was awesome, as you even had the poses down! I only had one pose for Inuyasha :thumbsup:

07-29-2002, 10:18 AM
Melchoir... I'm so sad I didn't run into you at all this year! Lady Somairot and I were keeping an eye out for you, but alas and alack..... the convention was just so massive, everytime I turned around I lost someone from my group. Hopefully we'll meet up next year!

I couldn't find anyone for the exception of a few people! ;_; Even while waiting backstage at the cosplay, I could barely see with my red contacts so I was really unsociable. >_<

Sami
07-29-2002, 12:09 PM
Uwaaa! I can't upload my pictures until I can find a spare CD drive.. >.> *stares at the gaping hole in her parents computer where the cd drive -used- to be* Don't ask me where it is, I just got here.. @___@ *waits impatiently*

At least I can look at other people's photos in the meantime! XD

07-29-2002, 12:26 PM
I hope you find one soon, Sami.. ^^ *keeps scouring net trying to find pictures of himself*

I was uh.. one of the few male jrock cosplayers. XD ... I had some platform boots on, some tightish pants and a fishnet shirt and collar.. and lotsa makeup and funky hair and stuff ^^() *goes back to looking for pictures inbetween scowls at kevin's host provider*

Leminhead
07-29-2002, 01:41 PM
Oh yeah, I've got another picture of the chocobo girl at my site:

Check it out. There's some pics of me and my friends, too, as well as a few other cosplayers. I only had one roll of film, so it's a bit scarce, but nice.

I was supposed to go as Seth from KoF, but my wig sucked so horribly that I decided aganist it.

Well, I learned my first lesson of Cosplay..Never, EVER get a cheap wig, because you get what you pay for.

My lace was falling apart by the time we left the stage and we still have to finish all of Auron.

Ranma Saotome

GAH! I saw you! You were selling yaoi smooches and I was the Emeralda who wanted a photo, but didn't have a camera! But I saw a smooch and holy crap, it made my frigging year.*sighs dreamily* Let me know if you find any of those photos flitting around, ok?*grins*

Lady (left) and I (looking fat). I wish kevin Lillard would let us POSE instead of snapping any old pic....I'm not half as big as that pic makes me look. And we both have silly expressions.

Yeah, there were a lot of people selling stuff there, mostly selling favors...I should know. ^_^ With the exception of a few signs that actually had relevance, the signs we're annoying. I'm just wondering, but does anyone know what exactly started the sign-thing. Some were very strange, like the one about free licks. I got licked, and i didn't even ask, that was just strange.

Jibrille
07-31-2002, 09:36 AM
well, from what i saw, the signs mainly started with someone i know who was a Rent-A-Ninja with a sign on his front and back, then all these Rent-a-whatever signs, then free hug signs started showing up, then there were just signs everywhere.

me and my friend holly had a practical set of signs. we couldnt find steve bennett so we made signs "have you seen steve bennett? WHERE?" and "We stalk steve bennett" and it worked, someone giving free hugs knew where he was and told us. it was great.
its a running joke, he calls us his 'stalker girls', its been going on since last anime usa. har har ^^

i was really tired of all the yaoi signs.... arg...

Okay, because saturady morning I had a sign that related to the costume. Then towards the evening there just seemed to be signs unrelated to anything. Oh well, it was amsuing walking around with a sign, especially when people got the joke.

I didn't have a rent-a-whatever sign. I was the Billy running around with the sign that said... "3000G/night...need to help Prim...Also needs new boots.", so I guess I was seperate from that Renting joke.

07-31-2002, 11:12 AM
I had a sign, Saturday night, that said: "I need $5 to get home! Pleeeeaaaase?"
Because, really, I was down to $3, and I needed $7 to pay the tolls.
So, I changed it to $1, and a very nice little girl gave me $2 =)

...But in the end, I was still screwed >.>;
Story to come later.

We assaulted a Beatrix for a photo outside over by the harbor.. like in that big open space thing after the bridge. ^^; (der?) I took a picture but my flash wasn't being normal so it didn't come out, so I'll have to wait for the others to develop their film..

I didn't see that many Beatrix's this time. :D I guess that's a cool thing!

This is me. It was taken a few weeks before Otakon. You can tell, because my hair is longer. I got my hair cut two days before I left for Otakon. =P

But anyway, that's my Tron costume. My Yugi costume is on another roll of film.

that's us! I'm the little Omi (bottom left). I don't think anyone else in my group posts here >_>;;

*I specify little because I saw a couple of disproportionately tall Omi's at Otakon. It made me sad, kind of. ._. mainly cause I'm jealous of the tall people. Rahr. I bite ankles.
