NDK Special Announcement on Full Metal Alchemist CosPlay

Hey, it's your cheerful pest Becca from NDK - This hasn’t gone up on the NDK site yet because I wanted to give you a particular heads up related to all the awesome work you do! We just confirmed Seiji Mizushima, Director of Full Metal Alchemist and the FMA movie (also DaiGuard, Generator Gawl, and Shaman King), for NDK this year. Mr. Mizushima has told friends that he was using this year as a time to recharge his “creative batteries.” His year is almost up – and it looks like NDK will be the last convention he can make it to for a while because he has a new project with MADHOUSE.

So – in the interest of making sure Mr. Mizushima’s creative battery is completely charged up, we would like to do something special for Mr. Mizushima and also for you! Because he loves cosplayers of FMA, we would like to set up a special meet and greet photo shoot where FMA cosplayers can have their pictures taken together with Mr. Mizushima and be able to speak directly with him. NOT one of those horrible “take your picture for $5 and you’re not allowed to talk” cynical things, but a relaxed time to really enjoy being together with someone who loves anime and FMA maybe even more than you, *grin*.

If this sounds good to you, post back here or, even better, email me at programming@ndkdenver.org and I will keep you updated on all plans for the gathering! Positive ideas for logistics and general cheerful chat are welcome. I am going to work to nail down the best time and place this month so that we know what day we're doing what and you have more time to plan - opinions here welcome too from any participant. ^_^

We love anime, we love fans, and we love cosplayers, so we hope this is a welcome announcement. We’ll announce Mr. Mizushima on the NDK site probably tomorrow – along with another special Japanese guest! We will post more about his appearance as we get closer to con. ^_^

Do you think it's ok to cross-post this on ‘seeking cosplayers’ because that seems kind of logical? Don't want to be a pain instead of a help. Making announcements always makes me nervous, *laugh*...

OK by me to cut and paste in other forums where ever there are people who would be happy to know. ^_^

0_0 This is awesome!! If I had more time I would definatly do a better FMA cosplay (I have my crappy Winry made with sleep deprivation during a caffeen high. That was fun. ¬¬) but alas. School starts in 2 weeks and I'm busy with very planned costumes for this year. =_=

I'm thinking for time, Sunday would be best so that it's not in conflict with the big main events stuff people like to see such as Music Videos -and also because I noticed there are already a lot of shoots planned for Friday and Saturday.

Logistically - considering giving a number to each group that shows up so they can stay together and also have an idea of who was where first when we start taking pictures. This kind of depends on how many people show up - if it's 50ish or so, then we probably can get by without worrying about order at all. I know Mizushima-san would like to have time to talk with the fans too so I'm thinking of blocking it for two hours instead of the normal one-hour panel time.
