Well, I think it's time someone got around to an offical recruting thread for the Wild Arms Group planned for Otakon 2003. There has been talk of one for a while, but now I think this will put things into place. So far if I remember correctly, we have tenative

Virginia - Michi (Tenative)
Gallows - Studmaster
Jet - Silent Duelist
Clive - I forget who

And some others that I think I forgot. Bascially, the group is ANYONE from the Wild Arms Trilogy. Gathering time will be posted as we get more people.

So who's down, and who is your chracter?

(Edited due to a mixup)

EDIT: If a charcter is taken, don't be afraid to be that charcter. We take multiples.

I'm not 100% sure I can do Virginia, so if someone else wants it keep me as tentative ~ otherwise I'll take it. ^_^; If I end up not doing Virginia.. I'll do um, Alfred. o_o

(It depends how much money I have available after the first two cons of the year. :3 After massive wig ordering and so on, haha.)

Oh yes, you were our Jet. Whoopsie, I got you mixed up with Dizzy, sorry about that, the list is edited too.

Yeah, I bet Spring Break will be when I turn my dorm into a sewing factory.

;_; Guess I know now what Con Anastasia will be for. hehe. Count me in as your Sword Magess. Now.. where to find a funky wolfie plushie..?

Yui

....ugh...too many groups....too many Otakon costumes...I shouldn't even ask....
Um, but are you counting the anime, too?

I honestly probably cannot bring another costume (just the changing logistics alone are overwhelming me right now), so I don't even exactly wanna say who I -would- be. Hehe. But definitely let me know when this goes on, though, because I'd love to photo document you guys (yea...the neglected RPGs are finally getting groups ^_^)

Studmaster
03-05-2003, 01:05 PM
Alright. So here's the group so far,

Anastasia - Emeralda
Virginia - Michi (Tenative)
Gallows - Studmaster
Jet - Silentduelist
Clive - Michi's Friend (I think)

Yui - Photographer

I can't find the thread that counted AX too. o_o; Is it gone? 'Cause I can be Alfred Schroedinger there with my friend as Todd. ^_^; But we might wait til Animagic or something if there's no group...

No it isn't gone. It's still in seeking Cosplayers. I'll make a new one at Anime Expo right now, so it can get better coverage.

So can I put you down as those characters?

Toji. go for it man. I wanted to Cosplay Jack myself. It would be amazing to see someone do it. (and join our little merry band too)

Michi
03-06-2003, 05:36 PM
Put me down for Virginia/Alfred. 'Cause if I can't do Virginia, I know Alfred will be available after AX. ^_^

Studmaster
03-10-2003, 08:55 AM
Alright here's the list of the group so far.

Virginia/Alfred: Michi
Jet: Silent Duelist
Gallows: Studmaster
Anastasia: Emeralda
Jack Van Burace: MrWonderful Toji (Tenative)
Clive/Todd: Michi's Friend (I will fill in the name later)

Michi
03-12-2003, 05:15 AM
^^; My friend Jeff that's doing Todd isn't going to Otakon, only AX.

MrWonderfulToji
03-15-2003, 05:06 PM
Any idea where we can get some high quality pics of the characters? Ill take a good look at Jack's costume and see if its at all possible for me..
sean

Zephyrs
03-15-2003, 08:54 PM
what I've done is take screenshots of the opening and endings directly (loving the new avatar - thank you psmplay!) and I think a few sites out there might have some scans of the artbook/soundtrack insert. I'll go through the game disc and see if I can PM you some screenshots.

Studmaster
03-18-2003, 05:04 PM
Well, time for an update on things, and another bump to make sure this thing doesn't fall off the first page.

Michi: Noted, the correction will be made.

Virginia/Alfred: Michi
Jet: Silent Duelist
Gallows: Studmaster
Anastasia: Emeralda
Jack Van Burace: MrWonderful Toji (Tenative)

silentduelist sent me the pics, and Jack is a freaking awesome character, soooo sign me up.
Ill call in a favor or two, and see if I can't get a hanpan plushie made. The costume itself looks rather easy when I check out the *great* pics that silentduelist put up, the only hard part is a coat, other than that, blue jeans, 2 shirts, boots. rock, for the sword, I think I actually can find one that looks like the Quick Draw Technique style sword jack always uses. So count me in!

heh, now I have to push up my plans for casual Cecilia so it can be done for Otakon so I guess you can jot me down for her too :) though what the policy is for those who "double up" is totally beyond me, due to me being rather new to the whole "group" thing... but now with a jack I stand a chance of being recognized! woohoo! although finding casual Cecilia pics is next to impossible, but that didn't stop me with a 16-bit sprite based cosplay for AXNY ^_^

Alright time for the Filgaia News Update for Team Wild Arms: Otakon X

Wanted List Update

Virginia/Alfred: Michi
Jet: Silent Duelist
Casual Celica: Silent Duelist
Gallows: Studmaster
Anastasia: Emeralda
Jack Van Burace: MrWonderful Toji (Tenative)
Kanon - Yui

Okay. Does anyone have a Tenative Time of the meeting for Otakon.

Yui
03-19-2003, 05:59 PM
Well, Xeno fun is Friday at 6pm (& probably the rest of the night onward based on all the stuff that's getting planned for it), but I have no other time obligations. Yet.

Michi
03-19-2003, 10:25 PM
I'm doing the Xeno group and then FF9 on Saturday around.. whatever early morning time it is, I forget. ^^; But that's it.

Studmaster
03-20-2003, 09:37 AM
Well the Xeno group is the star of Friday Evening, no getting around that, and it should be.

So why don't we go up first, and get the party started at Noon on Friday?

Yui
03-21-2003, 01:31 AM
Sounds good to me...I can save Cyber-ness and whatever uncomfortably hot new costumes I end up with for Saturday...
Hehe, Friday's always the early day. Hmm...looking at what costumes I promised to bring, I may try to fit in a quickie Suikoden photo shoot first thing Friday morning, but you can have me for the afternoon 'til the evening. (So I might actually get into WA mode around noon, but if we're planning a let's-definitely-be-assembled time for photos, you want to make that say 1? I just don't want to cut things close when we have to run out of the con center to go change.)
Yep, but that's plenty of hours before Xeno insanity ensues.

Michi
03-21-2003, 05:31 PM
Blahfdfgj. Sailor-Moon decided to put her group on Friday around 12-2. ^^;;; *dies* Mehhhh... If I can't get Virginia done, I don't think I'll wear Alfred without Todd.. so put me down as "tentative Virginia" only. If I have enough money to spare with this new job I'm aiming for next week, I can do it. ^_^; I could do Virginia first thing and.. hopefully not do Venus for Sailor-Moon til 2ish. I'll go check the other thread. THIS IS CRAZY.

*runs*

Yui
03-21-2003, 05:54 PM
Um...maybe I won't do Suikoden then (at least -that- morning)...because by then that'll be my fourth Suiko-representing, but only my second WA one.
Do you guys want to do WA the very first thing Friday? I'd rather stand in reg lines as Kanon over Mel, I think.

Michi
03-21-2003, 06:07 PM
I'd love to get into Virginia first thing. *puts aside money to commission it somewhere* >_>

Studmaster
03-29-2003, 03:20 PM
Alright, time to get off the second page.

Hmmm....Personally I would like to open Otakon as Gallows now that I've thought about it. Lets make this group what everyone remembers when they first enter Otakon X.

So how does a 9 AM meeting time sound?

Michi
03-29-2003, 03:46 PM
I think I can work that out... I'll just arrive in Virginia. :P Providing I have the money.. or else it's Alfred. Nyaha. :X

Yui
03-29-2003, 06:45 PM
Yeah, first thing Friday morning sounds good. That way, I'll be able to switch into something else for the j-rock panel in the afternoon and then quickly run over to the Xenogears meet.
Yep, Friday's full for me, but do-able this way.

Zephyrs
03-29-2003, 07:15 PM
hmm, I have no idea when my gang is heading down on Amtrak.. I know we were looking into "crack of dawn mad crazy early" but again, will have to check.

and I'll be spreading the WA love all day, since big groups scare me and this is it for me ^_^

Studmaster

Alright time for the Filgaia News Update for Team Wild Arms: Otakon X

Wanted List Update

Virginia or Alfred: Michi
Jet: Silent Duelist
Casual Celica: Silent Duelist
Gallows: Studmaster
Anastasia: Emeralda
Jack Van Burace: MrWonderful Toji (Tenative)
Kanon - Yui

Time of the team meeting will be at Friday 10 AM to kick off the con.

Michi
04-07-2003, 08:32 PM
Otakon.. X? ^^;

I think I told the group of listings...

Studmaster
04-07-2003, 09:21 PM
Otakon X = Otakon 10. It's the Tenth Otakon, they had it on their promotional poster at Katsucon.

Michi
04-07-2003, 09:32 PM
Oh. ^^; I've never put a number with Otakon since they usually go by year.. unlike cons like A-kon or Katsu. Okay! That's pretty neat.

Michi
04-12-2003, 06:11 AM
Yay for kicking up threads.

Um, unless I suddenly get lots of money, I won't be able to do Virginia.. x_x; I'm more worried about getting to Otakon than blowing money on a new costume. ^^; We'll see how it goes, but I'm not getting my hopes up. >_>

;_; I'll still take photos.

Catatonic_Van
04-22-2003, 04:23 PM
well if there is gonna be some Wild arms 1 representing I'll fix up and bring my Cecilia costume. I have the second version of Cecilia costume, I just have to remake the skirt and attach a belt to her jacket. I'm probably only going to Saturday though cause even though I'm local, fanime and AX are gonna drive me broke.

Emeralda
07-17-2003, 11:22 PM
Doubtful that I'm going to have Anastasia done in time. Sorry all.
