Hey everyone! It's actually 2007, so I figure we can start planning.

First off I really liked our location at the Marriott patio last year. How did everyone else feel about it?

And I know it's early, but Sunday does seem to generally be a good day for it. If anyone has any opinions on this please give them.

So what Final Fantasy and/or Kingdom Hearts costumes are people working on this year? My plan is to make Yuna's KH2 costume. Then for once I could have an easy to wear costume that I'm not worried about all the time. Last year I was constantly worried about my tail. Right now the only progress I really have on Yuna is her boots. I managed to find some reasonable ones on ebay.

Oh yeah, and here's the obligatory link to some pictures from last year's shoot: http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?cat=53999&member=32117

I ended up missing D*C last year, but I'm definitely going to be there this time. :) I'll probably bring either Celes or Esper Terra.

Shuya of Light
01-18-2007, 10:38 AM
If i go this year i'll most likely will Cosplay as Sora Wisdom form or Roxas Dunno know yet^.^

vampirate
01-18-2007, 06:33 PM
Either of those sounds great sweetvenus!

I don't know if being more unique is and issue for you Shuya, but it seems to me there's always more Soras than Roxases(or is that Roxasi?). But Wisdom form was my personal favorite form.

anduin
01-18-2007, 08:21 PM
This chick's going as Rinoa, from FF8. This'll be my first year at D*C, so I'm all looking forward to this con.

haha. At awa, the KH cosplayers started calling the multipul Roxas cosplayers "Roxasi"...just 'cuse it sounds so funny. XD

R-chan
01-19-2007, 12:08 PM
I'll be at D*C and probably bring Nono of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

vampirate
01-20-2007, 05:39 PM
anduin, I love Rinoa's costume. I think the design is so cute.

R-chan, yay moogles! And if you made ears to go with it, it could double as a XII costume. Here's a XII screencap of Nono I took:

Hmmm, this is just my opinion, but maybe we should have two photoshoots. One on Saturday and then Sunday. Because some people may not be there Sunday and there will probably be other photoshoots. -shrug- I dunno. This is just an opportunity for more pictures. ^^

So I'm going as Summoner Yuna from FFX. -teh nod- I have pretty good progress on it. I have the staff almost finished *long rod*, the arm thingies, the earrings and the bikini top. xD Well, the costume itself is kind of a long story. I wanted to wear this Saturday because of the parade but since this might be Sunday, maybe not. And my staffie might get damaged. ;_;

Ah! I thought your Red XIII was amazing. =O I saw pictures of it here and there and I was like, '...whoa...'

O.M.G. Roxass=LOVE. There can never be too much of him. Well, basically because no one can usually get his hair the way I like it, so...sometimes I really don't consider them to be Roxas. xD Is that too mean? =|

vampirate
01-21-2007, 07:11 PM
My plans are already getting pretty um, crowded for D*Con. I think one photoshoot for this group will be enough. I'm guessing there will be a cosplay.com shoot as well, which will give everyone more picture opportunities for whichever costume they want to wear to that. Sunday is a pretty big day for the con, so I'm thinking just about everyone should be around.

Yay for another Yuna! Hopefully we'll get at least one X-2 version of her, so we'll have representation from all the games she's in.

And thanks london2191! Red was a fun costume even if I didn't wear it for that long. After the shoot I was starving and didn't want to eat in costume, so I went ahead and changed out right afterwards.

london2191
01-22-2007, 03:45 PM
=] FFX-2 Yuna is insanely popular. There should definitely be one this year.

Mmm, well, I s'pose I'll just wear Soi Fong for the parade and all Saturday, hope there's a Bleach photoshoot that day. And then Yuna Sunday and IF I go Monday, I'll do Temari then.

We /do/ have Monday off coz' it's Labor Day, right?

And thanks london2191! Red was a fun costume even if I didn't wear it for that long. After the shoot I was starving and didn't want to eat in costume, so I went ahead and changed out right afterwards.

How many cons have you worn it to?

vampirate
01-22-2007, 05:23 PM
Yup, we'll have Monday off. I <3 Labor Day.

And I've just worn Red to this last D*Con. Since then there haven't been any other cons I've wanted to go to that have been close enough to get to. Actually this year's con might be the next con I go to. sad. I wish there were more cons around here.

london2191
01-23-2007, 04:27 PM
Have you been going to Momo and AWA?

Ahhh, so I don't know if there's a possibility going three days, butttt, I may being going to some new cons this year.

My whole family basically lives in Canada and we were thinking visiting them this summer, since we always see them in the winter. ANDD, so convienently, Anime North and Otakuthon are around that time. =3 So I may go. YAY!

Ooh, Canadian conventions. I bet that would be interesting.

And yeah, I've tried out both of those. I went to AWA for a long time and finally skipped this last one after I realized that I was spending most of my time there kinda bored. And for me Momocon was like that, but with some extra bonus issues. If I can afford it after D*Con(I also hate how AWA is right after it) I might go to AWA just to enter the contest. *shrugs* We'll see.

Kinda back to topic. Out of the four days Dragon*Con spans I'd say if you aren't able to come to all of them at least make it for Saturday and Sunday.

london2191
01-24-2007, 12:31 PM
Oh, Saturday is a 100% definite. Sunday is an almost absolute, and I'll see about Monday. Because, yay! No school. =) But it might be kinda annoying to leave early coz' of school the next day.

Monday is probably the least exciting day. I'm just there then cause there's no way I'd want to leave Sunday night. It is a good time for packing up and making goodbye rounds though.

london2191
01-24-2007, 08:47 PM
Mmm, I s'pose. But it's still another day of conning for me. =3

Sako-chan
01-31-2007, 12:16 PM
Look out for a KH2 Kairi painted black. I'll definitely be there Saturday(probably as Wrath) and I'll try to be there Sunday. No promises, though. D= Thankfully, I'll be staying with my Uncle, so I don't have to buy a room. x3

ravenmist
02-05-2007, 10:02 PM
So far I know a bunch of us are going to D*Con. So far we have a group of 8 here, but only a couple going as Final Fantasy of KH characters. A couple of us may attempt some Amano FF characters. We'll see how that works out. I'll be working on my KH2 Kairi as well. Nothing is definite yet as far as costumes go, but we'll see how things progress over the next few months. I have an Italy trip I need to save up for in June before I start working on costumes.
Can't wait!!!!

london2191
02-06-2007, 08:14 PM
When I get around to buying KH2 I'll probably do a cosplay from there too.

vampirate
02-09-2007, 09:09 AM
Yeah, staying there will definitely cut down on your con costs Sako-Chan, and your Kairi sounds interesting.

Just bring whoever you can talk into FF/KH costumes ravenmist. ;)

And have fun playing KH2 when you get it london2191!

a-tastic
02-09-2007, 10:13 PM
As far as I know, I'll be bringing either Ovelia or Geomancer from FFT.
It sort of depends on how hot the weather is.

london2191
02-10-2007, 03:10 PM
xD I've seen almost all of the cutscenes and I've played A LOT of Twilight Town already. And some of the others from my friends' games. Like the Sephiroth battle, um, and the last battle.

vampirate
02-13-2007, 09:29 AM
Yay for Tactic costumes a-tastic! I really like the designs.

Heh, the whole Twilight Town thing does go on for a while. Speaking of which I hope we get some of the Twilight Town gang. Olette is too cute!

vampirate
02-23-2007, 08:05 PM
On second thought I might make a Fran costume for this year. I just did a little budgeting research on the Fran outfit I want to make vs. Yuna and it wouldn't cost me that much more...

Ichigo_Kurosaki
02-24-2007, 06:32 PM
I'm planning to be there as Riku,and Kairi ^^' should have a Sora,another Kairi,and a Namine with me



And I think you should do Fran ^_^

kelldar
02-25-2007, 12:27 PM
I'll be bringing one of my Belle costumes, which one, I don't know (probably the blue peasant dress this year, the ballgown is a pain to travel with), but I'd love to try to make it to the shoot!

vampirate
02-25-2007, 12:32 PM
That sounds like a great group to have in the shoot ChrnotheSinner!

Awesome Kell, I hope you can make it too! I think your Belle costumes are great!

allison_smiley
03-01-2007, 08:42 AM
I didn't realize that you guys did a photoshoot. I have a warrior Rikku from FFX and am almost finished with Gunner Yuna... Now I just have to decide which one to wear! Thanks for the LJ post

london2191
03-01-2007, 12:25 PM
Ah, Warrior Rikku! It's so pretty looking. x.x

So what day are we doing this?

vampirate
03-01-2007, 02:55 PM
Awesome allison! Warrior Rikku would be pretty badass, though everyone loves a good Yuna.

I'm guessing Sunday afternoon london2191. Then we don't have to worry about people dealing with getting out of parade costumes from Saturday morning and anyone entering the Masquerade should have enough time to change after the shoot. And then if it goes like last year the "Fabrications" contest will be Friday night, and everyone will still be getting in Friday afternoon I'm assuming, etc...

london2191
03-01-2007, 03:07 PM
Okay. =3 That sounds wonderrrful. I'll be wearing Soi Fong for the parade then. -nod-

DUDE! talk about uber cute! I didn't know he was in FF XII too. I'll just do the gba version for momo-con but I'm thinking about this version now! WOW!

03-08-2007, 05:19 PM
for the photo shoot i could do a heartless me and a friend created the neoshadow costume

london2191
03-10-2007, 09:09 PM
There was a Heartless last year in the parade. xD It was hilarious.

vampirate
03-11-2007, 10:15 AM
R-chan, I know! The XII moogles are just too cute!

lostchildmiroku, having a heartless at the shoot would of course be lots of fun!

vampirate -- Since I'm already in the process of remaking Irvine Kinneas(as well as wearing it to JACON in few weeks), I'm just going to bring that with me for the photoshoot. :] Progress photos soon.

I wanna moogle. =3

Hm, so definitely Sunday then? I'm just confirming because there was another thread mentioning wanting to have a Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children parade group. Maybe we could have more than one shoot because I have a Kingdom Hearts AND Final Fantasy cosplay but I'm limiting one per day. Saturday /and/ Sunday maybe?

vampirate
03-27-2007, 03:51 PM
Well, it's looking like the Marvel vs. DC shoot will be Saturday. I usually just assume that the majority of people will be too busy to plan more than one shoot for this. Which is why I thought it was a pretty handy idea last year to bring in Kingdom Hearts since at least as far as I'm concerned the two series belong together, and then it's like two shoots for the price of one...er, or something like that, maybe killing two birds with one stone?

I guess for those that are going to be in the parade too I would just suggest bringing the costume you want more posed pictures of to the shoot.

london2191
03-29-2007, 07:22 PM
Hm. Well, we could have KH&FF on Sunday and Saturday? I dunno, just an idea. I'd like to see what people think tho'.

vampirate
04-03-2007, 08:23 PM
Hrm, well if people want to do something Saturday wouldn't it be easiest just for everyone who walks in the parade to have a shoot right afterwards?

For me it's just that I already have three non FF/KH groups I'm planning on so I can't plan anymore than one FF/KH outing.

makio
04-04-2007, 10:45 AM
Sunday would be good for me, only because rushing to change from one costume to another usually takes away from the fun of the convention itself. :sunburn: I mean, I'm willing to adjust to whatever day, but given the crowds, I might end up having to pull one of those Secret of My Success (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_of_my_success) elevator clothes changing scenes. LoL

london2191
04-04-2007, 06:24 PM
Vampirate: Well, this is not just people in the parade, but others who aren't in the parade and in FF/KH cosplay. -shrugs- I may just arrange one myself.

Vampirate: Well, this is not just people in the parade, but others who aren't in the parade and in FF/KH cosplay. -shrugs- I may just arrange one myself.

Ah, okay. Well I guess I'd just suggest seeing who all is interested in two shoots and maybe trying to coordinate with Yotan and the parade group.

Vampirate: That's awesome that you're doing KH2 Yunie! I can bring along my KH2 Rikku. It would be great if we could find a Paine now to complete the set! XD Sorry I missed the shoot last year. There was way too much going on. I wanted to see your Red XII in person. It looks great from the photos!

london: I love your Yuna cosplay. It's so cute! ^_^

london2191
04-06-2007, 02:18 PM

london: I love your Yuna cosplay. It's so cute! ^_^
Aw, I actually decided to go with Fran(artwork where she wears actual clothes, not standard game armor) for this year. One of my friends was going to by KH2 Rikku but decided not to. It would have been so much fun to do YuRiPa cosplay with you too! Maybe some other time since I still have the boots I got for Yuna. Now I've already got the fabric for Fran. Whatever happens it'll be great to have you back at the shoot! Make sure you try to bring Aleathia too! ;)

london2191
04-07-2007, 12:25 AM
Oh man, Fran is amazing. She's my total dream costume besides Ashe and Lulu. Leather and armor? -shoots self-

mocha
04-07-2007, 08:18 AM
london: Yeah I'll definitely have a Rikku there. Just not sure which version, most likely KH or Thief. Mostly cause they're easier to switch in and out of. X Rikku just has SO many accessories.

vampirate: Aww, well I'm sure you'll do a wonderful job with Fran. Good luck with that btw! And I'll *try* to bring her, but she's not too fond of FF cosplay lately... Maybe I can slip some subliminal messages into her Macross cd. :devil:

london2191
04-07-2007, 10:12 AM
Mocha: Aw. ;__; It'd be nice to have X Rikku tho' coz' no one ever does it.

mocha
04-08-2007, 12:41 AM
london: ^_^; Yeah I guess that's true. I'll see what I can do. The costume needs a few repairs..but at least there's plenty of time until then.

london2191
04-08-2007, 06:38 PM

Yay subliminal messages! ;)

04-10-2007, 06:05 PM
I probably won't make it this year anyway... I'm feeling rather lazy this year and I'll probably end up going to the con dressed in "normal" attire and/or old costumes and/or a random cat girl costume.

I might show up and take pictures, though. :)

vampirate
05-05-2007, 12:24 PM
We haven't had posts in a while. Anyways how about we go ahead and say we'll have the shoot Sunday afternoon at 2 on the Marriott patio? I'd just like to have a definite so I can tell lj communities.

And if london2191 organizes another event then planning for that can continue.

And of course we'll be happy to have you ringwraith10 wether you're in a costume or behind a camera!

Oh, and swatches for more possible Fran fabric should be on it's way to me. I've also got patterns for her, some fabric, and a micro plush fleece throw I'm going to be cutting up for her ears.

london2191
05-05-2007, 10:16 PM
Well, we should start a Phootshoots Dates and Times thread. -nods- To keep everything organized for all. I'll go ahead and post one of those. That way we can exchange numbers and all that jazz coz' I really don't know where that is. -sweatdrop-

Mmm, I don't think I'll be doing another event. I really only want to get pics of Namine *with my Kairi* which I'm doing instead of Yuna now. xD Yuna is on Monday.

Vampirate: Ooo, post pics!

vampirate
05-06-2007, 10:39 AM
london2191: Thanks for starting that thread!

Aw, Namine and Kairi pictures are so cute!

And I'll be sure to post progress pics once I start doing something with my materials. ;)

london2191
05-06-2007, 02:06 PM
Yepp. =3 I decided that I've been wearing Yuna for three cons this year whereas Namine is twice, so yeah. I'd like to have more pics of Namine with other KH cosplayers. Besides, I'll only have my Lulu with me at AWA *from what I know*. >> And my Kairi is like the birth of god. =O She's so accurate.

Amechan
05-21-2007, 03:25 PM
Ooooo fun! I assume this is the perks of choosing a character from a popular series/game. I'm planning on making a Lulu costume for D*con this year. I'm not sure if I'll be able to attend the photoshoot on Sunday, but I can definately try. I probably won't know until it gets closer to the convention time.

london2191
05-21-2007, 03:41 PM

london2191
05-30-2007, 11:31 PM
I will! Even tho'...I'm Namine? xD lol

Amechan: Which day do you plan on doing Lulu? Coz' I'm thinking about doing Yuna on Saturday or Monday.

Amechan: Which day do you plan on doing Lulu? Coz' I'm thinking about doing Yuna on Saturday or Monday.

I was planning on wearing my Lulu costume on both Saturday and Sunday. I can't go to D*Con on Monday because I have to drive back to Valdosta (which takes about 4 hours).

vampirate
06-02-2007, 10:44 PM
Oh, new people!

I hope you can make it Amechan!

And there is always a need for more heartless lostchildmiroku! ;)

london2191
06-03-2007, 12:47 AM
Lostchildmiroku: Eep! -hides from amazingly amazing heartless-

Amechan: Mmm, okay. =D I think I'll wear Yuna on Saturday then so I can get some pics with you. ^^ Do you plan on participating in the parade?

Vampirate: How goes Fran? =O

vampirate
06-03-2007, 08:24 AM
Er, I've got part of her cut out... But I finally got a job so now I should finally be able to get the suede I want for her ear insides and shrug. Then I can really get to work on her.

Oh yeah, and I'm doing this version:

And hopefully it'll end up looking something like this:

The thing I'm most undecided about is the shoes.

london2191
06-03-2007, 01:05 PM
Aw, you're doing that one? =D I saw a sketch for that somewhere. I can't wait to see progress then.

yeahness i am soo gona be there trust me im a fun heartless ,at megacon in florida i chased a bottle around the second floor becouse with the bodysuit on i could not grab it.

vampirate: ^.^ thanks

london2191: *sneeks closer as smile widens* im going to the hardwear store to see if i can find small lights to put in my eyes to make them glow . that would be cool

06-05-2007, 04:33 AM
I'll be there as the main version of Sora. My boyfriend will be end of the game Riku, Ningyo Sachi will be Roxas, and two of my other friends will Kairi and Namine. LostChildMiroku already said who she was cosplaying. Another friend possibly will be Xexion.

A19Riku
06-05-2007, 09:49 AM
im almost postitive that im going but im not quite sure what im wearing yet but i know it will be either kh of ff bc lol all my choices are that it just depends on whats finished and how long i stay

i think my choices so far are demyx, cloud, that blue haired guy from final fantasy XIII, or i always have my kh2 riku and org riku outfits that and i have a new wig for them now thats the right length :D

most likely it will be either 2 or all of the first 3

london2191
06-05-2007, 12:28 PM
lostchildmiroku: You're still going as a Neoshadow, nee? Or have you made a different version?

Kayago-chan: Wah, that's a good group. ^^ Which means they'll be loads of KH at D*C. And homg, Zexion! He=the smex.

im almost postitive that im going but im not quite sure what im wearing yet but i know it will be either kh of ff bc lol all my choices are that it just depends on whats finished and how long i stay

i think my choices so far are demyx, cloud, that blue haired guy from final fantasy XIII, or i always have my kh2 riku and org riku outfits that and i have a new wig for them now thats the right length :D

most likely it will be either 2 or all of the first 3

Wtf, when did this happen? You and Namine are just TRYING to kill me aren't you..? Or at least make my parents kill me.. WHAT EVIL PLOT IS NEXT?! Dx

Nope. I usually stand in line for my badge during the parade (because the line is somewhat shorter). ^^;

Kayago_Muriki: Whoa! Sounds like you have an awesome group going on, can't wait to see you all!

That's a lot of choices A19Riku! I'd like to see Demyx myself. I'm sure it'll be easier to get decent references for the XIII guy as time goes on, but it might be tricky to pull off now.

Demon_Slayer69: Welcome to Dragon*Con! You guys should have a blast! And for the location, when you go into the Marriott just go to the lobby level where check-in is, and then go to the back. The patio is right through the glass doors there.

Is anyone here participating in the parade? If we get a big enough group, maybe we can separate ourselves from the Anime & Video Games group.

demyx has a really good chance at going since im styling the wig next week and all i really have to worry about is the sitar bc since its like 5' 10" i have to make it collaspable so it will fit in my car

but ya it is harder to do the ff XIII guy now but im very impatient actually though ive found quite a few refrences lol i even found this really good shoot to where i now know he has light blue knee socks on under his boots lmao im a nerd :geek:
but ya im getting a lot of help form my amazing friend bc she is really good at machine sewing and ya i just suck at sewing unless its by hand then im good
and then im in charge of the wig which should be easy compared to the cloud wig and demyx wig i have to style
and i get to do the weapon I<3 weapons they r my fav. lol i love the system i have w/ my friends bc we r all good at seperate things so that we can make a whole outfit perfect together :D

but ya overall he actually has a lot of screen shoots so im not too worried ive already started on the sword even though i wont be able to finish it til after governors school

Hey all! I was Riku last year, and it looks like I'll be Riku again this year - but this time I'm bringing a Sora and a Kairi with me!

At this point I don't know which versions we'll be doing (KH I or KH II) But we'll be there to join the fun! ^_^ I'm looking forward to seeing all the people from last year again! And it sounds like we're going to have an amazing group, too.

To the organizers, maybe this time we should put up directions to the location ahead of time? I remember how a lot of people (including me) got lost and didn't (or almost didn't) find the porch.

normally it doesn't take me this long to post on this thread during the year.

i digress...

if i can make it to the con this year, i'll be bringing squall from last year and the year before AND auron from dr. axis' portrayal last year and the year before. dr. axis having moved to new york over the winter, will not be able to attend. he did however relinquish his costume to me. and that huge sword is dying to outta the corner.

even if i cannot attend, i've notice at least one other auron in this thread. so yuna will have her guardian. :)

i'll try to stay up to date till con time!

Hiya, I'm the Sora to randirien's Riku she has already mentioned. This will be my first D*Con visit ^_^ I'm thrilled beyond all logical reason.

We were talking about doing the parade and haven't made a final decision on which costume to wear (our other big cosplay will be D. Gray-Man). I was curious to know if there's going to be a group of KH/video game cosplayers doing the parade?

Score ^_^ As I told Kayago_Murikai, I have to discuss with my group on which costumes we're ultimately going to wear for the parade. We're going to Anime Festival Orlando 8 at the beginning of August, and we will determine after that which of our costumes will be best to use for the parade! We'll be sure to let you guys know if we choose to go with KH.

We're definitely wearing KH on Sunday for the photoshoot, though. We'll be there no matter what ^_^

And my friend who cosplayed at the shoot last year in my white mage who is actually *my* Namine might be borrowing my Kairi this year. How odd is that thought, Namine cosplaying Kairi...And before when I posted on lj I got a lot of positive response from Disney cosplayers, I really hope they make it. I'll make another lj post soonish.

Yeah, when someone says they're bringing a friend and they're cosplaying as so and so I'd rather wait and see if we get a cosplay.com name to attach to them later. It would just get more confusing for me if I tried to list all the non cosplay.com friends.

I'll totally put her down!

And yeah, I'm just listing the for the shoot. Hopefully knowing who we're looking for will help make it easier to find everyone if anyone gets lost or something.

here's how it'll pan out for me...

i'll be trying to go to newyourk, to visit my best friend, so i'll be a little broke to experience the whole of the con. it'll probably be a over-nighter. but one of the days i'll be there will be for the FF photo shoot.

i'll bring the squall and auron costumes. if viscus can't get his auron together in time, i'll wear auon, or have a friend wear it. or, i may let them wear it if they have no costume of their own.

right now i'm playing it by ear, but i think it'll work out well.

Ichigo_Kurosaki
06-28-2007, 12:58 PM

orca_sora
07-03-2007, 04:09 PM
A large shoot should be fun. I've never been to one but the more the merrier, eh? Since FF is canon with KH, I don't see a need for separate shoots unless you want to get game specific with some of the characters who have yet to made an appearance in KH. But you totally know they all eventually will. My money is on Vincent sometime in a future title.

Aw, I'm sad I missed you guys that were at Metrocon. My friend that I went with and I only came for a few hours Friday and Saturday afternoon. But since we weren't doing any contests or interested in the chess match there wasn't much for us to do.

Anyways, aiuchi might be getting a wig(instead of dying it again) and bring her Namine instead of getting a different wig and borrowing my Kairi. I'm waiting to see exactly what she decides. And apparently Yaya is having a Disney shoot that she might just decide to conviently have it kind of around the same time as our shoot so that they can get in on the KH fun. I'm also working on convincing friends who have very full costume schedules this year they need to at least make a FF/KH costume for next year. ;)

And for anyone newish to the thread the shoot is at 2pm Sunday afternoon at the Marriott patio.

I have to dye my hair blond for Sabretooth for the first half of the weekend and then back to black for Auron. So I will likely have it going on from Saturday afternoon on, I guess. Depends on how into Sabretooth I am...

Yeah! It's going to be fun. I've never done a Final Fantasy character before, so this is new for me. It's been hard to find one that doesn't look androgynous! Auron is pretty much a total badass, so I'll take it.

Ok so I've figured out which costume I'm bringing! Since I *should* have the blades in time, I'm going with Rikku's thief costume from X-2. However the FFX version is going to be on standby just in case. ^_^;

Good luck to you all with making your costumes!

another change in plans. looks like i'll make the con after all. night sure of my total dates, but i'll be there for the photo shoot.

bad news: i may have to retire squall. too many elements of that costume are messed up or worn out beyond repair. i'd have to start from scratch. i don't have that time as i'll be starting a new job.

i have a tried and true auron costume at my disposal. i may just have to go with that. let me know what you think i should do vampirate.

Well, if Squall is a bit worn out I'd say go ahead and bring Auron. Though for future reference I'd like to see you put together Squall's(or Leon, whatever) KH costume sometime when you get around to making new stuff. *hint* ;)

And, we'll see you there tats27!

i'd need to pick up another copy of KH2, having borrowed the copy i played. maybe i could find a way to resurrect the squall costume as a KH leon.only time will tell. i will be starting a new job and i'll be devoting a lot of time to that endeavor.

i'll work on what i can before con time.

I just got my friend Silas(of My Little Transformer) to agree to bring a nice camera and take pictures at the shoot. Now I'm much less worried about the photographer issue. It was really nice having Eurobeat King at the shoot last year. Of course if anyone still wants to bring photographer friends encourage that by all means! The more the merrier!

I may(and it's a pretty big may, as I'm lacking a wig) have Penelo. If I can find a good wig(assuming I can afford it and have it in time) then I'll definitely bring her. I want to wear that costume so bad! But if not, I'll have Tifa, or an unamed FFXIII character.

Ok, turns out my gunblade for my Lightning cosplay will not be done in time due to unforseen circumstaces, which I completely understand. So I will be weapon-less, unless someone else doing Lightning doesn't mind me borrowing their gunblade for my photoshoot with EBK. If not then I'll do Saber for my photoshoot or bring Yuna with me. Not sure yet, but we'll see.
So I'll wear Lighting to the KH/FF shoot I just won't be complete. Hope no one minds.

I'm trying to convince a friend to wear a Turks uniform.

Ugh! I'm so pissed! I ordered hair extensions to make Lulu's bun and braids a couple of days ago and they won't come in until after Dragon*con. And I can't bring myself to wear the costume without the right hair style. Which is why I'm so pissed.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to wear a different costume to D*C that I already have all the parts to... so, I'm not going as Lulu and I won't be at the photoshoot. T_T

Wedding Ashe. It's not nearly done yet since I only started her a week ago. All I have is the base of the dress and miles and miles of tulle for the veil. *sigh* The extreme level of detail makes me want to gouge my eyes out. But yeeeeessss!! We must get pictures!

actually that contest is Sunday morning, (the hallway one, where you get your picture taken and ppl vote.) so maybe we can whip Rasler and Ashe out just briefly Sunday morning for that? I duno lol, totally up to you

as for Saturday...I tend to get up pretty early, but whatever time is good for you. If we say... 8:30 am (if that's not too early), then we can meet up and do the parade

and then after that just walk around until we get tired of being in the cosplays lol.

Completely up to you.. If you don't want to do the parade in Ashe, we can wear whichever cosplays for that and then meet up after :) tho I think it'd be fun to be in a parade lol

08-16-2007, 07:54 PM
CloakedSchemer: Generally they are taking pictures for the Hall contest during the day Friday and Saturday. I think they just save the voting for Sunday. Since voting doesn't start when picture taking does people who get their picture taken Friday won't rack up votes unfairly due to lack of competition.

I get up pretty early, too. 8:30 should be ok and I'm down to be in the parade. That would be loads of fun! I just have to do a test run tomorrow after my classes to see how fast I can walk around in the "skirt of death." I should warn you though, chances are that I won't be tired of this dress. ^^

I won't be busting Auron out until Sunday, unfortunately. I have to bleach my hair for Sabretooth and then back to black for Auron. Since I want to get the most out of Sabretooth (I paid quite a bit for it), I'll be doing it for the first three days.

i'm glad you have done such a wonderful job on your costume, you see, due to timing with my new job, which i'll be moving for, i won't be able to make it to the con, so there will definitely need to be an auron there, and you should be the one in my opinion.

A lot of groups go out with just t-shirts with their logo on it or whatever (that's what we do). A few of our guys came down to Steak & Ale last year in full Umbrella or Stormtrooper armor and that's a few blocks away. I say "Who cares?" It's Dragon*Con weekend and I would imagine most people know that. Atlanta is a pretty progressive city anyway...

Going out to eat in cosplay is always an adventure lol. We've done cosplay dinners before, and it's been a blast

The only thing I'd watch is some FF cosplays are very extensive and sometimes bulky, so maybe we can have our shoot at the Hyatt (or what not) and then anyone who wants to go to dinner, can. Maybe?

The Kraken
08-17-2007, 11:47 PM
I've been to that mall that's attached to the Hyatt to eat in costume before. They kind of expect it there. When we went to ACE a few months ago, the food court people wanted to take pictures with us in our Umbrella stuff and they asked if we would be back for Dragon*Con. It was pretty funny.

vampirate
08-18-2007, 09:11 AM
I don't know what I would do without that attached food court! I do always try and bring some of my own food, but I'm going to get tired of granola bars and ramen made with the hotel coffee pot. And eating out all the time at nice places or breaking down and paying for overpriced hotel food just adds up to more money than I want to spend on food.

Anyways, back to this particular issue. Personally my dress is white, so I'd like to avoid eating in it. I'd probably be up for getting some Orange Julius or something like that though. Because that is in the oh so convenient food court, and they have drink lids, and I can kind of be a clutz sometimes. And as long as they are all back open you can get to the food court from the Marriott via the "hamster trails".

Which kind of brings up this crazy thought I've had rattling around in my head: Wouldn't it be cool if we were as well organized as such groups. Maybe not just FF/KH but if all Squeenix cosplayers had some sort of group like the 501st to belong to. Then we could have fun dorky t-shirts and stuff, and then plan out of costume lunch gatherings and stuff and still be highly recognizable to each other. Just a thought. Maybe if we all work together we could get the ball rolling for something by next year.

The Kraken
08-18-2007, 06:04 PM
If you want to do that, you'll first have to start with a forum. Well, like this one... ha ha! It should be easy enough to get members. There are enough people that do these kinds of costumes.

orca_sora
08-18-2007, 08:23 PM
I think that's an awesome idea. I wonder how the 501st got started as an official organization. Probably would need permission legally to make it official. But I would totally join a Square-Enix group.

The Kraken
08-18-2007, 08:31 PM
We never got permission from Capcom or anybody. As long as you don't make a profit using their logos and what-not, it should be fine.

vampirate
08-18-2007, 09:29 PM
Yeah, as long as you change things up(similar to parody rules/rights maybe), are non-profit, and non-offensive I don't think major companies can have too much beef with such groups/organizations. My friend and I who I started My Little Transformer with have not had problems with Hasbro for reasons such as us not making money off of it, being mostly family friendly, and actually having some Hasbro people like the show.

If anyone has any suggestions about user friendly free domains with forum hosting maybe we should look into that. Or maybe we could get away with charging a forum subscription to pay for a domain. Someone who knows more about domain hosting and website building than I could probably make better suggestions.

orca_sora
08-18-2007, 11:13 PM
Ah, that's cool then. I've just had experience with other fandoms where the companies haven't been as lenient. I was involved in the administration of the first Harry Potter symposium back in 2003 and involved with another in 2005. Warner Brothers is *extremely* protective of the names and images and we had a lot of problems getting around that, even though the events were non-profit and listed with the government as tax exempt.

It would be cool, though, if Square-Enix doesn't have a problem. Disney might be another matter, though.

-- Hey, I've been keeping tabs with the Disney shoot and apparently someone found out that the location we're supposed to use this year is still blocked off with construction. Is there a way people can keep updated with any possible location changes at the con?

Wow, a lot of people responded to the call for aid -- now there's so many possible locations that look great! Personally, any of them I think will work fine. Personally, I think that perhaps it'd be a good idea since it seems like no one part of our group has been to these locations, we should probably all meet somewhere at the con location first and then travel as a group to where we decide to shoot. This way, we minimize the number of people who may get lost. I know I've never been to downtown Atlanta before :-\

A19Riku - the time's been confirmed for quite a while: 2 PM on Sunday

Okay, so the Suntrust building/plaza across from the Hyatt as well as Hardy Ivy Park seem to be kind of next to each other. Do we maybe want to still meet in the Marriott to find anyone who may have not heard of the location issues, and then walk over to this general area as a group? I can imagine it might take us a while too, since we'll probably draw a lot of attention and photographers might stop us. ;)

And I think I am meeting up with a local friend Friday so I can learn how to get to locations.

It definitely makes sense to still meet at the Marriott lobby then work our way over to whichever location is decided upon.

I also vouch for meeting in the lobby of the Marriot and then moving to a final location together.

Okay, so how about meet at the check-in level lobby at 2. Wait around a bit for any stragglers. And then set off on our adventure. I also think a print out of the Dragon*Con photo spots thread might be wonderfully helpful, as well as that google maps page from the lj entry. I'll see if I can't my boyfriend to print those out at his work before the con, since we don't have a printer at home.

That works. Are we still going to invite the Disney group along?

Well, we can't exactly say no...xD And Disney does play a major part in Kingdom Hearts so they're practically already invited. We could still ask if they wanted to come tho'.

I'll have to talk to Yaya or something, although she is flying off to Brazil this weekend. Originally the Disney group was just going to come to the patio later so that we could all get lots of great Kingdom Hearts pictures. Now everything is just more complicated. hrmph. silly construction.

There really aught to be a message board or something at the hotels for people to post announcements and such for purposes like these. I hope it all works out, I was looking forward to some pics with a wider variety of Disney cosplayers since at anime cons they're rare.

Well, it looks like AshleyV might be taking over the last week of planning for the Disney shoot. If we can't decide on a definite location before then I can just play phone tag with her that day.

As far as I understand it, this is what's official:

The KH/FF Shoot will meet officially in the Marriot lobby, check-in level, at 2 PM on Sunday.

From there, after enough people have gathered, we will move as a group to a location for the actual shoot. Where that is, is still being determined and more likely than not we will find out/decide when we meet at 2 in the Marriot lobby.

Tell one, tell all, tell your neighbors, your pets ... that's the scoop.

I've been thinking, what if we first go to somewhere else in the Marriott just to make it easier? Like maybe we meet down at the check-in level and then move up to the 10th floor where there's lots of space. And then after the Disney group catches up then see if we can all successfully head to one of the nifty outdoor locations, cause I love me some outdoor photos. Or if that's too much trouble for such a huge group just stay in the Marriott. Opinions?

In my opinion, all of that movement would be difficult for such a large group. Not to mention, it would be slow as a good majority of people will get stopped for pictures on the way.

The Kraken has a point. When I did the KH/FF Shoot at AFO earlier this month, we met at one point and then tried to move as a group to a final location. Not only did no one listen to me and just ... take off in a general direction without really knowing where they were going, but we sorta formed an impromptu parade and were asked for photos along the way. I was able to deflect them with the invite for them to join us at the shoot but I must agree that it's hard to manage a large group of people in an already existing large group of people.

I've never been to D*Con, so I have no idea as to the scope but I realize it's massive. Is the 10th floor easy to get to/easy to spot if we met up there initially? Is the lobby too chaotic for a large group of people to meet and then move on from? I still think we should meet at a hotel first before going anywhere else. We can just tell everyone that if they're stopped for a photo, tell the photographer politely that they can follow us to our shoot but otherwise we can't stop -- that's what I had to do at AFO. We ended up having a huge group of people just taking photos of us as result.

Yeah, I'm worried about moving being difficult. Just three of us walking around together before the shoot last year got stopped enough. The patio was so convenient! I love outdoor pictures, but maybe we will need to stay in the Marriott. I'd just worry about other foot traffic and such staying in the check-in lobby. The 10th floor should be easy to get to. With meeting there I'd just be worried about people who've been too busy to check back with us missing that as the meeting location. Although if everyone else wants to head up there to start with who knows about it, a few of us could stay downstairs to find people. Again, opinions?

I was actually going to suggest sending people in smaller groups to the final destination while others stayed behind to direct and grab late-comers. Weather permitting, I'm also more keen toward outdoor shoots than indoor simply because lighting is generally better.

Grr, stupid construction messing this all up what should have been so simple.

Will the 10th floor be big enough and not cause any problems with fire marshalls?

I feel like a dork for asking, but is there anyone who would be willing to meet me a few minutes ahead and sort of 'direct' me through the photoshoot. I've only been to one other con and I'm still a newbie at this sort of thing.

Well, I like to run around a bit before hand and help everyone find everyone. But mostly it's a lot of posing, standing still, and getting your picture taken. Hopefully even though we are missing out on the wonderful patio we will still be able to be organized and get group pictures by game and individual pictures.

And after much discussion. How about we just say that we meet in the check-in level lobby until the Disney group shows up? And when that happens we'll probably be so big we'll need to move to another location. Maybe we can just use the buddy system or something so no one gets lost when/if we have to move.

Sounds like our best (and only) option, really. Maybe a few D*Con veterans could volunteer to help keep everyone together when we move to our final location, like chaperons? I would, but this is my first time, so I wouldn't trust me not to get lost if I were in charge of directing people XD
