View Full Version : Dead or Alive Gathering for ACen?

Well it looks like I'm going to ACen after all. Yay!

Since I had such a blast at the Katsucon DOA gathering (http://www.divideby0.com/photos/2003/Katsucon/doa.html) I'd thought of trying to gather another one up for ACen.

Anyone interested? I'll be wearing Zack.

I know Al and Ayaka will be there, but dunno if they will be too busy to do DOA costumes.

I don't know the convention center too well or what the best time would be so I'm totally open to suggestions for time and place. :>

I was just on the AX board and our DOA gathering has been extended to DOA-X cosplay as well, so if anyone is brave enough to to DOA-X costumes, you're also welcome. :)

Hope to meet you all at ACen!

Oh cool, I thought it was you after seeing your Ayane pictures on your web site and on here. :)

Hehe, well we'll probably have one more. I hasn't haven't gotten a hold of Ayaka. I think she's been busy. :( I'm *pretty* sure she's gonna do Ayane as well at Acen, so we should have three! :D

Oh hey, you know what? I think I've met you, although briefly at last year's AX. This is you right? :)

The reason I remember is because I was watching the two of you trying to sit down, and with those platforms I saw some amazing things you did with your ankles. 8-o

I won't be bringing Jann Lee to A-cen, since I'll be bringing him to A-kon 2 weeks later, since my friend requested me to wear JL there. I might do the DOAX version of Jann Lee while I'm there (his black kung-fu top and a bright-pink swimsuit (no speedo!)) for pool-pictures. heehee

Ayaka
04-13-2003, 01:19 AM
I SWEAR I remember replying to this thread. Oo;;; Oh man.

Anyway, yes, Ayane and I are coming. ^^ And since you're curious about where to meet up for pics, my first thought is the lowest level, the main lobby floor, there's a big abstract statue with a black base, did Weiss pics there last year. There aren't many open spots at the hotel, I think that might be best.

Ah too bad we won't have our Jann-Lee. It's cool though, w've got two Ayanes and a Zack! Not bad! ^^

That sounds cool. Is that the place Yui has said as the default place for gatherings in her ACen gatherings mega thread?

Ok... so we've got a place... any suggestions on a time? Just off hand, say around 2pm? It's after lunch and stuff...

Ayaka
04-15-2003, 06:41 PM
Uhm . . . probably. Dunno. I'll have to go check. What day are we talking? Did I like forget or did we ever talk about days . . .?

ZiggyB
04-15-2003, 08:17 PM
I think saturday is the day we're talking about. We're also talking about this on the Acen message board so I'm forgetting what I post there isn't here. :) What can't you read my mind!? :)

Well, I think we've covered this before, but there might be a potential bayman showing up to the gathering. It depends on several things, one of which depends on weather or not someone will spot him =-p. And, I have to say, Despite all my DOAX playing, I missed Jann Lee in there...they must have sneaked him in somehow...or maybe there's just a different version of the game out =-P

Oh yes, that's me in white & black! *is excited to see that someone remembers that costume!*

2pm on Saturday by the statue sounds fantastic, and it should be easy to find...hopefully. ^.^

Also, Ayaka, I've seen pics of your Ayane costume - it looks fantastic! I'm excited we each have a different version to wear. I don't have that version in my game yet. Apparently those many playings of Ayane haven't paid off yet. *disgruntled*

Cheers!

ZiggyB
04-16-2003, 05:14 PM
Cool, I'll talk with Yui about posting the time on the ACen gathering list. I'll also post the time and place on the Acen board. :)

Oh after a few hours of playing DOA I've unlocked all of Ayane's costumes (http://www.divideby0.com/cosplay/resources/doa2/). I'm working on the others slowly...

Ayaka
04-16-2003, 10:49 PM
Yeah I TOTALLY cheated and let Ziggy unlock and post pics of all the costumes for me. ^^;;; I still owe you for that one, Ziggy, don't I? lol. I'll finish costume 8 someday, how about that, hahah.

Ah and thank you! ^^ I'm looking forward to seeing yours in person. Oh hey! I saw you too, at AX! ^^ What's it from? I think I know but I might be wrong and then I'd feel dumb lol. Oh hey I could check the database . . . XD Wow I'm so DUH now . . . Klaha from Malice Mizer, I should have known. ^^; I'm only just getting into j-rock . . . can't remember which PV that outfit is. Anyway, nice! ^^

ZiggyB
04-17-2003, 01:04 AM
Hehe, don't worry about it Ayaka. :) I know how long your costume list is. :D

*feels totally bad for not knowing she ran into 2 people that remember her from AX!* What were you wearing at AX?

Yep, that's Klaha! From the Gardenia music video. If you need, I can give you all the J-rock help you want. *evil laughter*

It's neat that you wanna do Ayane's 8th outfit. I *love* her 2nd and 6th outfits, so would like to try those at some point, if I can ever work through my list of all the other stuff. *dies*

Ok, this is me totally digressing from the topic.

Ayaka
04-17-2003, 02:39 PM
What WAS I wearing at AX . . . oO; lol. Only my second time cosplaying and I managed to wind up doing a bunch of fast changes, so my costumes are kinda hazy (though i remember everyone else's!). I was wearing Haruko from FLCL, Kaoru from Kenshin (I had ears and a tail), Integra from Hellsing, Faye from Bebop, and Sanzo from Saiyuki, in roughly that order. ^^ And Tamao from Shaman King but no one who wasn't at the SK shoot will remember that one lol.

And I'd be glad to have some tips re: j-rock, you can give me some pointers at ACen or something. ^^

Hey, there's almost no one in this topic, we can abuse it all we want. XD We are the few, the proud, the DoA cosplayers. Heheh, combined, we can probably make sure that all of Ayane's outfits (DoA2 at least) get cosplayed at some point, lol. ^^

ZiggyB
04-17-2003, 04:01 PM
sefie_tilmitt: AX was my first time cosplaying and I was doing Squall. Considering there were like a billion Squalls that day, I'm wouldn't be entirely surprised if you didn't see me. :)

sefie_tilmitt
04-17-2003, 04:58 PM
Rock ON! We'll have Ayane Costume Support Club or something.

Hey, is anyone bringing a PS2 with the data transfer thingie that allows you to hook it up to a hotel tv? We could have our own DOA night. Of course, I'm a nerd, and over 21, and that's what I come up with to do. *laughs*

I shall bring J-rock aplenty to Acen. *steeples fingers* Mua ha ha!

As for costumes - I didn't know most of those costumes then, except for Sanzo. I bet I saw you! *hops around* I also wanna cosplay Sanzo, though that's in a line behind lots and lots of J-rock....

I try to take notice of Squalls - I cosplayed as Selphie at AX 2001, so I always appreciate the FF costumes! *thumbs up for the heck of it!*

Ayaka
04-18-2003, 12:13 AM
There are SO many series out there, it's really hard to keep up. Of course, that's not a bad thing really, that there are a lot of cosplay options! XD Ah I'm Sanzo obsessed . . . just as a warning XD Looking forward to seeing your j-rock costumes!

I can bring my PS2, but I don't know of this getting around evil hotel TV blocks thing you speak of. The only thing I'd heard involved a pair of pliers. ^^;

ZiggyB
04-18-2003, 02:48 AM
I can bring the pliers and the DOA2: Hardcore. But do we really wanna be playing the game when we can go pick on the KOF or Street Fighter cosplayers? ;-) j/k

XD That's right. We'll put them to shame with our startling brilliance. After all...with 2 Ayane's we're twice as evil.

Ayaka
04-18-2003, 03:51 AM
What do you think about maybe suggesting an all fighting games gathering? You know, open to KoF people, Soul Calibur, whoever happens to be around. I thought maybe it'd be fun, have a big group of people, wacky crossover battles . . . whatever. ^^

ZiggyB
05-08-2003, 05:04 AM
Ok, just to bring this thread back to life... :)

The DOA gathering is on Saturday, 2pm at the spiral sculpture. I've sent a message to Yui about updating the gathering list.

See you guys/girls there. :)

sefie_tilmitt
05-08-2003, 09:38 AM
I'll be there with bells on, although I'm not sure how I'll fit bells on my costume....

*giggles*

ZiggyB
05-08-2003, 05:36 PM
Hehehe. I'd go with bells, but I think I attract enough attention without them. X-D

sefie_tilmitt
05-08-2003, 05:54 PM
Yes, I think your Zach costume would. You'll be, like, a gigantic bicycle reflector. XD

ZiggyB
05-08-2003, 06:09 PM
Haha, that's a new one!

Let's see, I've been called a solar collector, an olympic speed skater and even a Hershey's kiss. :P

sefie_tilmitt
05-08-2003, 10:08 PM
And all of those are extremely valid. :) Does the little ball at the top of the costume light up?

ZiggyB
05-08-2003, 11:17 PM
No it doesn't light up yet. I'll rig it to do that one of these days.

You know, that's the most frequent request I get from people. :)

sefie_tilmitt
05-09-2003, 11:31 AM
People love stuff that lights up. Shiny colors and all that!

ZiggyB
05-09-2003, 06:01 PM
Well if I can get my Ohgami Ichiro costume done in time, I'll try to rig up a light up antenne. :) If nothing else I should it working by AX.

sefie_tilmitt
05-09-2003, 10:39 PM
Good thing I'll be at AX. XD

ZiggyB
05-09-2003, 11:21 PM
Woohoo! :)

A little early, but you interested in doing the DOA gathering at AX as well? Um... it's scheduled for Friday at 2pm in front of the convention center.

http://pub130.ezboard.com/fanimeexpofrm48.showMessage?topicID=94.topic

Oh well, we can talk about this later, first I need to survive ACen. X-O

sefie_tilmitt
05-10-2003, 01:00 AM
I'll definitely be there. although Friday is J-rock day, so I'll work it out somehow....

Eurobeat King
05-11-2003, 02:50 PM
Well, it looks like since I'm bringing a big suitcase (to pack Hibiki's sword, and return WITH the costume that Erika made for me) I have enough room, so I'll be bringing Jann Lee with me for the DOA gathering. :) When is it again? hehe I haven't checked in a while.. :thumbsup: But I'll have it with me anyway. Hey, Zig.. did you want to try wearing J-Lee during the weekend if you want to wear another costume during the con? ;)

sefie_tilmitt
05-11-2003, 07:17 PM
It's 2pm on Saturday by the sprial statue. *is glad you'll join us!*

Ayaka
05-11-2003, 08:09 PM
Hey Ziggy, I *lovingly* called you a Hershey's kiss. :D

Great to hear we're going to have your Jann Lee again, Al! ^^

ZiggyB
05-11-2003, 08:24 PM
Al glad you're joining us. :)

Thanks for the offer, but I'll have enough costumes to wear. :) I'm finishing up (more like paniced sewing) my Ohgami battle uniform, even as I type. :)

ZiggyB
05-22-2003, 06:44 AM
Ok it's taking me forever to sort though all the pictures I took at ACen, but at least I got the Dead or Alive ones up. :>

Here they are, enjoy and thanks to everyone who came! I had a wonderful time and got some great pictures with everyone. :>

sefie_tilmitt: It was great meeting you in person! :) I hope to see you at AX! :)

05-23-2003, 09:22 AM
I'll have my photos up soon too, on my site:

http://www.angelfire.com/goth/kupo_kosplay

It'll be under conventions, but I haven't made an official page as of yet. The pics came out really well tho!

*goes to check out Ziggy's photos*

05-27-2003, 01:37 AM
Ok, everyone, pics are up at:

http://www.angelfire.com/goth2/kupo_kosplay/c_photos_doa_meetup.htm

Ziggy & Ayaka: Can I steal photos from your sites and use them in various nefarious ways, such as icons and photos on my site?

ZiggyB
05-27-2003, 05:47 AM
Hahaha. That's fine with me.... I think. ;-)

Love the new avatar btw. :>

sefie_tilmitt
05-27-2003, 10:23 AM
Thank you! Yours is quite dashing as well! ^.^

Ayaka
05-27-2003, 01:00 PM
I don't mind if you use them on your site either. ^^(Even though it sounds a little ominous . . . o_O) Ditto on the nice new av.

sefie_tilmitt
05-27-2003, 03:39 PM
Sweet - *also makes note to self to do linkage*

We all came home with sparkly new icons!

ZiggyB
05-27-2003, 06:19 PM
Hahah we did didn't we? :)

I guess that's another perk of going to conventions. :>

<goes and dives into the pictures and starts sorting...>

sefie_tilmitt

WAHHH! Buffy quote! There's a party in my eye socket and everyone's invited!

ROTFL!

I don't think anyone else would even think that line is funny! :D

sefie_tilmitt
05-28-2003, 12:08 PM
Yep, but if you were there to see it, you know it was hilarious! Or maybe in my twisted Xander-loving sense it was....
