Nekocon is closer then we think and there are hardly any gatherings listed! I have yet to truely finalize my cosplay plans for Neko, but I do know I'll be wearing one or both of my Ichigo outfits during the weekend.

Who else is wearing Bleach at nekocon and who wants to get together for a photoshoot? Lets start planning! ^_^

Kiba!! Yay ^_^ Can't wait to see your Ichigo! We should hang out. We can get pizza again XD

So what time would everyone like to have the shoot? I'm open to any day, any time basically. I work my costume schedule around the photoshoots I decide to go to. The only thing I have to worry about is my artist alley table and making sure I have someone to sit at it when I go off to for the shoot.

What days does everyone plan on wearing their bleach outfits?

Provided I can actually attend Nekocon [depends on my performance schedule at uni], I'm hoping to debut my Yoruichi there. So I would most likely bring that to the gathering. Will also probably be bringing Geta-Boushi, if only to randomly prance around and uphold the good name of Urahara [as there are so many awful, awful Urahara cosplayers ;___;]. I have no schedule to work around, so whatever day/time you pick is fine with me. ^___^

Tohma
08-24-2006, 09:39 PM
Yay! Finally some responses ^_^

Yay so many different characters too ^_^ I can't wait to see everyone!

Hmm..times times...as a location I think we should meet up in the main part of the convention center. When you walk right in the front doors and there is that little fountain area. That would be a good meeting area and then we can travel outside if we wanted to.

I know a lot of people aren't there on Friday mornings and Sundays. So what about Saturday morning or afternoon? I haven't really worked out when I am wearing what either, so deciding on this will help ^_^ We could also have two if we wanted. One on Friday and One on Saturday if everyone would like that.

I was undecided on it, but I will now officially be doing Orihime. So, I'll be there ... not sure when I was planning on wearing it, but as long as the 'shoot doesn't conflict with the masquerade, I should be okay. (I'll be participating in the masquerade in a different outfit). Orihime's really easy to get into, though, so it's not a big deal. :D

Okie, I think I have a more solid list of who will be in my group now, and anyway, this thread needs some revival. xD

I'll be doing Orihime, and the significant other will be present as Hisagi; we have two other friends coming as Kira and Aizen; and Salty is with us, so his Kyouraku applies. I'm currently trying very hard to talk another friend into Rangiku (just for the fun of Kira, Rangiku, and Hisagi drinking photo op), and I think she'll budge if I nag enough.

I need more main character people with me. *sniff* Namely, I think it would be amusing to have a Kon ...

I'm very excited for Nekocon ^_^ I still haven't really decided when I am wearing what though...the fact that there is no hall cosplay contest this year frees me up a little though ^^

I was thinking I would wear Ichigo on Friday afternoon until I get sick of wearing it...or maybe on Sunday since I probably won't be taking my Edward costume. Saturday is going to be my more difficult costumes probably like Tasuki or Byakko. But if we want to have a photoshoot on Saturday instead of those other days then I can change things around ^_^

It gets harder and harder to pick when to wear things with each con. I just don't know what to take or wear anymore. I have too many costumes X_x

Don't feel bad, I'm having the same problem. I know that my group will be trying to work around the masquerade schedule ... I'm disappointed to hear there won't be Hall Cosplay.

However, we are doing Soul Calibur for masquerade, so as long as Bleach doesn't overlap that, I'm good.

Tess
09-12-2006, 11:27 AM
No hall cosplay? Well poo. I had rather hoped to enter my Sally, assuming she turns out well. Will there be any sort of craftsmanship or walk-on competition as part of the masq, or just skits?

As of now I can confirm that I'll be at Nekocon [there was a question of whether my school schedule would conflict or not], and I can wear Urahara either Friday evening or Sunday. So one of those days would be best for me, but please don't go out of your way to accomodate. If everyone thinks Saturday would work better, go for it. I'll stop by to take pictures. ^__^

Well, after some deliberation it looks like my group will be doing Bleach on Friday starting probably late afternoon and going into the night as long as we're at the convention center.

I think a photoshoot out front near all the water stuff could be fun, as long as we make sure to get out there before it gets too dark.

We normally don't hang around in costumes on Sunday, but really, for lack of anything better to do, we could put on Bleach again then if that'd be more convenient for everyone--people don't normally seem to cosplay on Sunday, so they might have more time free.

Tohma
09-12-2006, 09:41 PM
Looks like Friday is working out for most people ^_^ I'm definetly up for Friday afternoon/evening. *Pencils in Ichigo for Friday afternoon* Finally my schedule starts to come together XD

So how about we meet outside by the fountains on Friday. Since it will be outside we probably want to say early evening so that it doesn't get too dark on us. How does...5 PM sound for everyone? I don't know what time it will be getting dark.

We should do some fun pictures as well as a big group shot ^_^

Tess
09-12-2006, 10:02 PM
I have absolutely no idea when I'll be getting into the area on Friday evening [it could be as late as 10PM, depending upon how things work out] so I probably won't be able to commit to a 5PM photoshoot. But I'll still plan on wearing Urahara on Friday night, then. ^__^

Now that its looking more and more likely that I am coming, well basically definte, I be bringing Rukia with me. I'll probably end up wearing it either Friday or Sunday as well. Hopefully the photoshoot will be either day, but if not I will still be around looking for all of you!

AlphaNinn
09-13-2006, 02:21 AM
Unless something job wise forbids me from going, I'll be at the con, at least. I'd love to try to make the gathering, if I'm not working at the con at that time (I just switched to cosplay staff this year from AMS (ya know, con safety)- don't ask me anything because I don't even know what I'll be doing yet, lol).

As for my character...that's hush hush. But I can't wait to wear it. (And it's only hush hush because I want to surprise some friends with it, and I know they come here, lol)

Tohma
09-13-2006, 10:09 PM
We could move the shoot a little later if that works for everyone. Everyone can throw out their desired photoshoot time on Friday and then we can decide which one works best for everyone. I have no other plans, I just need to make sure I have someone at my artist alley table whenever we decide to do this. I open to any time! ^_^

Even if you miss the shoot Tess, I want a couple pictures with your Urahara!

I'm cool with any time people need from probably ... 4-5 pm onward, really (I'll be wearing Vincent until about 3, I'd say ... he gets uncomfortable REALLY fast). There's a lighted area at the side of the convention center, on the way back to the main hotel--a stairwell and such, which wasn't finished last year ... so even if we need to take night pictures, that should be amply lit, and I know several people in my group have quality cameras capable of taking night shots. I'll also be bringing a tripod in case we want to get any timer shots.

And I agree with Tohma--even if you initially miss the 'shoot, I'm cool with that, too ... pictures can really be taken later on. Heck, if everyone's planning to stay up late, the con shuts down by like midnight every night (I know the center's open until 2 am, but as far as I was concerned, there wasn't much to do after 12 or 1), so we could do a really-uber-late 'shoot. Or one really early Saturday morning. There are lots of options. xD

We should probably coordinate to exchange contact information when it gets a little closer to the con.

Heh, a really-uber-late shot can really be a blast (We did one at Otakon) - and even with the low light conditions, the shots came out nicely.

It really kind of fits the setting of Bleach, anyway--whenever I think of Hollows, I tend to think of them coming out at night ... but maybe that's just me. I guess a lot of the series really does take place during the day.

I need to finish my costume. LESS THAN TWO MONTHS LEFT~

AlphaNinn
09-13-2006, 11:53 PM
I can't say that crossed my mind, but yeah - I can see how it'd be fitting.

My costume's almost done. The sleeves are being a pain...but whatever. Really, I'm down to a paintjob and a wig (worst comes to worst, I have a right color, right length, wrong styled one)

I have to do the top of Orihime--both the white underneath and the black over ... I have a wig picked out, I just need to buy it, and the shoes and tabi. I'm OOAK modding a Ken doll (bonus points to anyone who can figure out why I'd be doing that), which will take a little costuming and painting.

Then I get the fun times of making my boyfriend's Hisagi, and wow, but no pattern company on the market seems to make adequately poofy hakama ...

AlphaNinn
09-14-2006, 12:43 AM
I didn't use a pattern for mine, just some directions I found online, leaving me to figure out all the measurements I wanted to use (It actually worked really well, I just made sure to do the math mutiple times) I even bought a pattern for half of my costume, and ended up not using it, and just looking at the pictures on the cover.

I think I can safely say though, that I will be the only one in the particular version of a character I'm doing. If I'm not...I'll...uh...I'll eat my hakama. That's how sure I am, lol.

I often forego patterns for costumes, but it's easier to do when I'm fitting for myself, since I have a much better idea of my proportions ... sewing for my boyfriend is a different story entirely, considering he's 9" taller than me and about twice my weight.

Now I'm curious to see what character you're doing. xD

AlphaNinn
09-14-2006, 02:31 AM
Note that I said version =p I'm totally sure there'll be others of the same character, lol.

Ah! I know that feeling. I made my friend who taller and heavier than me a generic Bleach costume last year. (The photo of it in my gallery is pre-modifications to make it fit right). I had a heck of a time on it, considering I made it the week before the con (while finishing up my costume as well) and the first time he actually tried it on was AT the con. ....It was a learning experience. I shudder when I look at the sleeves on it. They're so wrong it's not funny. (Rush job + no references other than my memory....yeah)

Tohma
09-14-2006, 09:35 PM
oooh uber-late photoshoot...that would rock XD Now to just convince one of my friends to stay up late and play photographer.

We can also do the multiple photoshoot idea.

I want Ichigo/Orihime pictures!! I like that pairing but never get to take pictures with an Orihime ^^;;

I should probably work on fixing up my Ichigo a little...I was going to redo the lining of my Bankai outfit again and I need to fix the handle of Zangetsu...yeah should probably work on that soon ^^;;

I don't know about ultra-late, but I think I could definitely make a 9PM+ shoot.

[The story here, for anyone who's curious as to why I'm so disorganized, is that I'll be in southern Maryland for a choir tour the Thursday and Friday of Nekocon. I'll be driving myself down, so I can leave from our last concert on Friday, but I don't exactly know when or where that concert will be. And then I have to cross the bay to pick up Final_Memories, at which point we can head to Virginia Beach for the con. If my concert is over at 2PM, which is the current rumour in choir, I can see us getting to Nekocon by 7PM. Which wouldn't be too bad. I've worn Urahara-san at enough conventions that I'm not too worried about getting pictures of him. I would like to make a late shoot, though, just so I can meet and hang out with some of you. ^___^]

Thank you all for coming and making the photoshoot go so well and so smoothly ^_^ I've never run one on my own before and so I was nervous that it would all fall apart. It was fun hanging out with so many of you throughout the weekend as well.

Thanks for putting it together, Tohma! I know -I- had a blast and it was quite wonderful to meet so many nice, fun new people! This was only my second cosplay ever (and my first photo shoot) and it was one to remember! Even if it was cold and my toes almost got frostbite! ;)

Not so much an orgy, but every one dog-piling Uraharah and being tired, refusing to move, because of comfiness...yea it was memorable...can't wait to see what happens next time this group does a photoshoot.
