So you are all meeting on Firday still right...?

DarkReflection
03-29-2007, 03:15 PM
I could come to SDCC as Sasuke... I'm not sure though. I got over my Naruto cosplays a while back. And since most people are doing time jump (Shippuden) costumes when most of the cartoon Network Naruto eps. are being the only thing to be recognized at places like SDCC, I don't see the point. But the upside is that most popular animes like this have a vast majority of Narutards who can't cosplay well to save lives, take tremendous amounts of pics of you if you do the costumes they CAN recognize. I can confirm this b/c I did TJ Neji and people around me were like => 0_0;; and me get no pics. So you can put me down as a maybe for Sasuke, non time-jump at the moment. Lastly, I'm not saying you can't do Time Jump, go do it more power to you, its just be prepared to be asked this alot, "Who are you? Some Random Naruto Ninja or something?" And your answer will be, "I'm a Time-Jump (older) version of so-and-so". Watch their faces, its quite funny.

Ryoko-and-Yami
03-30-2007, 09:34 PM
I can't say that's completely true! Many people watch Naruto/read it online. All my friends do! I went as Takuto from Full Moon wo Sagashite for Comic Con last year. Only like a few manga volumes were out, like 3...And I was anime version. Many recognized me. Of course man thought I was a cat person too.

My sis and I as gaara and ino are there younger version.

Ryoko-and-Yami

1:00 might be kinda early....hmm there could be autographs going on. I think later would be better, but I wish we had a better idea of the scheduling.

Lyris
04-13-2007, 06:25 PM
I think I'm good with anytime so far......and my friends as well; however I come bearing some bad news. My friend decided to skip on the Temari....but alas, what can be done? I'm sure we can all deal without Temari, I still should have many other friends coming though....unless they decide to skip out as well. Hopefully not. I'll keep checking back for a date and time so.....keep it up.

then again, we do have a couple of months until comic con plus the cosplayers that don't bother posting or who are doing naruto cosplay on another day so that should make for a ridiculously large naruto group :]

Actually he knows sort of what it is about(Make out paradise). I asked him and he gave me what he thought it was(which was really close). No matter how you try to shelter a kid, their friends talk(even in 2nd grade).

Though it could be cute to get a pic of someone trying to keep the book from him.

That would be great! At the local convention here he was hanging around his new Gaara big sisters(he loves Gaara way to much). What's really sad is I don't think he even he(or the girls) would have noticed if I ran away(not like I would). He loves to take pics and pose (as long as it isn't with a little girl his size I found out).

Showed him your pic and he knew you were a girl (then again he only has seen 1 male Gaara cosplayer). I think he is more confortable with older girls because he has a 15 year old sister and most of her friends are nice to him, plus the girls at school chase and annoy him.

Yes he was the boy who stalked your sister with the camera at the gathering(kind of lucky she mention chibi Gaara because I did not want to try to make a gourd). He is way too obessed with Gaara. I'm hoping that he will find another character he loves as much because he has started bothering me about another cosplay(can't wait till he is 9 and can take the sewing class at the community college). He won't be doing a new cosplay at SDCC so I have till Jan till our next local con(since the rest of the family cosplays he believes he needs a cosplay also at any con we go to). He agrees to do any cosplay we mention to him, but I want him to choose on his own (though he may do Toshiro from Bleach because the rest of the family have/or will cosplay from that series, plus he is the right height:toothy: .)

well yes it is mostly comics but then there are the good sides of it...

like th anime shops and such... load of manga and other things.

mostly is comic books and superheroes..

usually they have manga artist come sponsored by viz or tokyopop. I know viz announced their shojo artist for this year, and I'm expecting someone pretty big for shonen. Last year the creator of kenshin came. ^^

They let people come and go inside the convention as long as you have a valid badge to enter. So we could organize something after the gathering such as a duck duck goose game or anything similar as long as we don't bother other cosplayers and congoers inside. : 3

We could even go to the Filming section where they show cartoons, it's often empty there > w <

Probably the best and easiest thing we could do and still have fun would be to gather in an open place where there's the least amount of congoers like some of you suggested so we could do our thing, but since this will be my first year going I don't know a good place to hang *sweat drop*

I do recall saying I may go to CCI as Sasuke. I'll probably redo my Sasuke Chuunin exam version again... god this'll be the 3rd time already for the same convention. Its not in the best shape or highly accurate, because I haven't touched it in over a year, I had summer school and even getting one AX costume was difficult. Looking forward to meeting people, and heres to hoping that I'll get tickets and not get lost when time comes to meet up.

I did have some fun during the gathering I'll admit, but I'm going to have to post the complaints I and some other cosplayers and adults had with what occurred.

1) It was mostly the same people who had their pictures taken, no consideration for others when another photo op. was suggested.

2) Some cosplay girls forcefully demanded what pictures going to be taken. Since when did this turn into dictatorship? Again no consideration for others.

3) Yaoi shots. I know its borderline funny, but LIMIT it damn you. When I said you were traumatizing little kids (besides that chibi-Garra), I did not joke. There were actual little toddlers pointing and asking parents why Sasuke and Naruto or Itachi were kissing so passionately, even though it was fake. And parents just dragged them off without answering, sounds funny huh? Its not, its things like that which give Naruto cosplayers a bad name. You can have your Yaoi shots you sexual deprived fangirls, but be considerate for people who don't like it and the place in which you try to 're-enact' such scenes taken from your dillusional and will never come true fanfiction. This ain't A/X were you may have been in your element to do that with little complaints, but CCI has anime and everything else entertainment wise, seeing anime cosplayers doing such fanatical acts, makes me wonder why people on the internet make fun of us anime cosplayers all the time.

3a) There's only so many times you can do the Sennen Goroshi (1000 years of pain) before the gag dies. Come on, we could have had better pictures if not for people beating on a dead horse of a gag for so long and in so many pictures too.

4) An older man who tried to get some organization in the group told me, that he was horrendously disgusted by what you fricken yaoi fangirls tried to pull. And if just an 'old man' doesn't have much pull on you maybe knowing that he's a producer helping out with PBS. He said things like that would either be banned and most likely flamed without regret if any actual media broadcasting got a hold of that.

5) People please, we all like the series Naruto, heck we cosplayed it, must mean something. Squeeling your lungs out and acting all 'Narutarded' kinda downplays to what extent we like it. I'm not saying we can't have fun, we all did in many ways, but holy damn you guys went out of control. Swinging around Zabuza's sword, with no care whos around you, its crap like that which gets you kicked out idiots.

Damn I feel better. Overall, you guys were just releasing all that pent-up sexual frustration weren't you? Control yourselves better, get the bubbles of Yaoi fantasies surgical removed from your heads, you were in company of adults and little children, think a little before doing something. Think of how other people may feel, being neglected from having a few photos or not having their photo op be taken into consideration.

By the way, if you think I didn't have fun by the time you read this, you're wrong. I had tremendous fun cosplaying as Sasuke, but only after your cameras were full of Yaoi and you were finally doing decent photo shoots. And no, I'm not raining on your parade, some of you went out of control and needed to be told that. We have con manners to respect, if you don't gatherings like this won't be acknowledged nor respected, but completely disregarded by those who don't wish to associate with such aspects. Learn from mistakes and we'll all get along more peacefully and hopefully no more rants like this from me.

Ashenine
07-29-2007, 03:49 AM
In regards to the last post, I should say I do apologize for that. There were not many pictures taken or considered for other cosplayers, it may have gone better and smoothly if it was done in some order.

As for the yaoi shots? The itachi and sasuke cosplayer are a couple and we were just acting like such (this is no excuse for what he did by the time he picked me up and did suggestive movement [idiot]), it was by the time girls were screaming that it turned quite awkard and it was our first cosplay to boot (don't encourage for so long such shots if you know it can get worse [for such scenes like those]).

Personally, it was fun, it was different for me and it may have gone better if there was some sort of pre-mentions and limits HERE later to reinforce them at the actual gathering.

For the many "gags" not many cosplayer have done the same time over and over, there are people who had the fun in participating at least in one even if for others is too "boring", as you take consideration to different cosplayers also take in their opinion.

The "dictatorship" is difficult to really think about. It became a form so other may know what the hell to do instead of just standing there waiting. Even if there were. There should be some sort of an order if a photographer is trying to speak out when someone else's voice got louder.


The only mild complain/regret? We could have done so much more done, but didn't due to either lack of control and/or ignorance.

I just hope we can do another naruto gathering without any of the issues mentioned. Even more if it's in a place so populated like the registration area.

well said.
it got way too raucous there. even though this doesn't apply to some of us who also felt the same, a bad representation of cosplayers was made at the gathering.

about the "dictatorship," or rather forceful demanding of pictures by rabid fanppl, i did find it quite annoying but like ashenine said, it was better than standing around and not doing anything. HOWEVER, photo ops should mainly be up to cosplayers ... we should take suggestions but to an extent. it would also help to consider the people around us as well and our mannerisms during that point in time. it's okay to have fun (i like fun), but let it be some good clean fun.

also, i was talking to some cosplayers a bit afterwards and they all agreed with the fact that a lot of other characters were "ignored," too. i feel a bit selfish myself when i say this but yes, the same people got their pictures taken over and over again. others didn't hesitate to jump into a photo, while others did because of not wanting to ruin the integrity of the photo. i'm not saying it's bad or anything and i know that ppl tend to be biased about the show (shippuuden, "minor" characters, etc.), but do give others a chance to have their photos taken as well.


in my personal opinion, the gathering wasn't too bad but it got hella whack after a while.
that is all.

hoowah, man. you dont know how long ive been wanting to say something like this, and you stated all of the flaws and quirks of the naruto gathering quite well. (this is the female kazekage gaara, by the way).

yes. i completely agree that a numerous amount of things went out of hand with the gathering, ranging from indecent displays of affection, to the horribly vociferous level of many of the cosplayers there. hell, we were in the damn SAILS PAVILION! imagine all the ppl coming in for there first taste of comic-con, only to come witness to a group of fanatic cosplayers who are ... cough ... doing strange things (cant find a way to put this any better) and this raucous sight to be there first impression of the cosplayers, as well as the con itself.

and yes. i wholeheartedly agree that there were many cosplayers who were cut out of the picture, or who were more rather not invited into the picture. i did feel rather sorry for those characters who were not known well yet, and had no photo ops include them in some way or another.

yes. the yaoi-fangirls. i got rather annoyed with that. im a big fan of yaoi myself, but i would never go as low as to act out a rather crude scene in public. if youre gonna do that stuff, do it on your own time, you know. like when you and your friends are doing a photoshoot together or something (and not in a pretty damn crowded area with ppl who may or may not understand or accept yaoi). its not wrong to express what you believe, but its not that decent either. and from the view point of ashenine, as a fellow yaoi fangirl, we both probably share the same opinion on that subject, and its great that you recognized when enough was enough as well.

however, things like this can be avoided, and hopefully, with a couple of voices who demand for order, the next naruto gathering will be great (with the avoidance of latter "whack", as my sister, crash, said). we could have fun, but theres a thin line before fun becomes inconsiderate to those around them.

Just to throw my two cents in here...

From when I was there, I didn't see any of the "fangirl" acts going on while I was there. I didn't get to stay that long, but most people at the gathering were cooperative with me. Not to say all were, as when you have around fifty Naruto cosplayers running amok, it's hard to herd them together for particular shoots.

Mostly though, I think there needed to be someone who needed to organize the shots. I know EBK took over the first FF gathering on Friday for abit in organizing, and I ended up organizing the shoots for the Bleach gathering on Sunday.

Overall, it was a good shoot, but I wish I knew about the fangirl trolling so I could have went over and get them to stop it.

Oh yea, my photos from the Naruto gathering is from 168 -> 182.

sorry if I offeded or did anything to anyone at the gathering
I didnt want to be in every shot ( and I wasnt thankfully)
but yah it was a little crazy
I think the location also had to do with lack of shots maybe since we didnt have any atmosphere to go off of and people were passing by
(and it was bleeding hot lol naruto was literally on fire!)
but as far as shots go usually if I want to take a shot with a character I just ask them and then take it instead of waiting around in case its hard to get orgainized (like the sakura shot was crazy when everyone jumped in I wasnt expecting that but everyone as really nice and it was funny!)

overall I had fun besides getting really heat sick
you guys rocked

and oh luvkh
I am glad I got to meet you earlier that day it was awesome


and oh yah my chakra is all gone lol
it was all OVER the convention center yesterday when I was walking around so I think I am retired naruto now heh

Yes, thank you DarkReflection, for that insight.(I can't believe you were standing next to me while we were taking during the gathering. And yes, that "old guy" for PBS was my father, and yes he and I were reviewing the naruto gathering we wrote up for PBS. Don't worry, we didn't say anything negative about the gathering to our people, just that it was raunchy fun.) Anywho, the naruto gathering was FUN...yes...but it could have been better, with some organization. I just felt it was odd that the original intention of the gathering was to get one of every character possible from the series, not just the main characters, and it turned out most of the same characters got pictures, excluding the minor ones, in which, people wanted them to show up.
But, DarkReflection has spoken my thoughts exactly, so theres no point in going in-depth. Other then that, I had fun being the Yondaime Hokage, I had fun people were represented [I]Naruto[I], I even had fun that other people were having fun. Everyone did great, espeacially those who came as the minor characters who didn't get the attention you so deserved for picking up the slack of the show. And considering that a majority of of the cosplayers are mostly from California, here hoping that Comic-Con 08 Naruto gathering will be Bigger, Better, and here's hoping: more organized. Thanks.

So... I've heard that my girlfriend and I offended some people over (Specially me) for kissing her and... Err... Humping her while she was on her Sasuke cosplay and I in my Itachi cosplay... So, I think I owe an apology to the people who got offended (Specially for the humping part...) and here it is... Anyhow, I had fun at the gathering, hope my girl and I can go next year as the Uchiha brothers (No humping this time)

You can always think of going with another pair of outfits. Maybe you can cross-dress as a girl this time. =P

All kidding aside, I didn't see it. Next time, why not just try to go with a normal coupling set of outfits if you're gonna kiss/hump each other... not that it wouldn't offend anyone. >_>

Most of all, don't stop cosplaying just because people got upset with you two just being a couple. Just think who you're cosplaying first next time. =P

- I second for EBK to organize next gathering :D

- I wish no humping while I try to rest, thats for when lights go out hun ; D kthnxloveyah <3

- It was so weird when people asked us for fanservice since we just joked about it when we first thought about the characters xDD and sometimes when people asked us why we weren't killing each other we would hug/peck just for fun. But no humping by then, now or ever D:

Ego can be such a horrible horrible thing! Careful!

- I was thinking that for the next gathering we could later move on to different locations so we can have a variant of atmosphere, or even go to the park that's outside the con for next year.

Also, I saw more Naruto characters on saturday than any other day. Maybe we could set the gathering for masquerade and get more people to join or even stay together/socialize/hang out while waiting with those who stay...?

First off, in the now 10 years I've gone to Comic-Con, I actually missed Saturday and Sunday-had to go back to LA, my family had busniess that had to be done immediatly. Other then that and what I've heard and seen about Saturday's cosplayers, this was a massive year in CCI for cosplaying other then most comic book characters. In all the years I've seen, Anime and gaming icons over toke alot of the cosplaying this year, not saying thats bad, actually it's insane. It's such a relief to see soo many genres now, of course their were anime cosplays before at the Con, yet in small numbers. Maybe because CC is the mecha of conventions, more cosplayers are representing, and people are getting less afraid of going out there in costume and having fun and I was in awe more so this year then any other, and I was just there for the Thursday and Friday I saw people in different stuff and it was such a relief.
The smaller stuff like AX is more openly greeted and friendlier, yet CC feels like being a king when your costume now, where people in costume are more of the celebrity then the celebrities themselves. I'm already excited and ready to go again. I just hope with ever growing demand for the Con, that we get a gathering going next year, at a good time, a good leader, a little more openiness to other peoples costumes, and not let arrogance and weirdness take over.

The contract for SDCC to remain in San Diego goes to 2012. It wouldn't surprise me at all if between now and 2012, there may be an announcement by the San Diego Convention Center about a possible additional expansion... if thats even possible. Though, since the city of San Diego is near broke, I wouldn't expect it either.

San Diego has a hard enough time trying to keep the Chargers in town; SDCC might be the furthest from their minds ATM.

but I will definitely go the gathering next year to see everyone!

I am not going to be doing anime characters for cc next year probably
who knows its a year off heh

like I said before
I was just really hot


I got a photoshoot down with eurobeat king and he took me to a nice little pond outside the marriot to the left of the convention center

Well for my second time ever cosplaying in my life, this gathering totally rocked! I'm so glad that we had a pretty big turnout with a great variety of ninjas. I didn't see anything offending, maybe that all happened at the beginning of the gathering I'm not sure since I got to the gathering a little late. I 100% agree that we need someone to take the reins and lead us and we need to get everyone involved. It would also be great to have music playing next year too! But overall I loved it and hopefully next year we could make it even better ^_^

linkluver6: Yeah I'm so glad we met and you made a great Naruto! I was walking around the Exhibit Hall and saw parts of your costume on the floor XD I was like yup Naruto was here.

Ryoko-and-Yami: You guys made an awesome Gaara and Ino (Pig lol)! It was great meeting you and taking pics.

Oh if any of you have pics of all the Narutos together and the huge tug-o-war over Sasuke I would love to see them!!! :toothy:

Oh god, I wish I could've took a picture of that. I brought out my PSP to show the dance to a Ino who was teaching it to another person (forgot who) and the Sasuke just came by and danced it with her. I couldn't take the picture though, since my camera was clenched in my left hand and the PSP playing the Hare Hare Yukai full version on my right hand.

It would've been great if I could have gotten everyone to do the Hare Hare Yukai; oh well. I didn't stay long enough to take that many pictures anyway.

well said.
it got way too raucous there. even though this doesn't apply to some of us who also felt the same, a bad representation of cosplayers was made at the gathering.

about the "dictatorship," or rather forceful demanding of pictures by rabid fanppl, i did find it quite annoying but like ashenine said, it was better than standing around and not doing anything. HOWEVER, photo ops should mainly be up to cosplayers ... we should take suggestions but to an extent. it would also help to consider the people around us as well and our mannerisms during that point in time. it's okay to have fun (i like fun), but let it be some good clean fun.

also, i was talking to some cosplayers a bit afterwards and they all agreed with the fact that a lot of other characters were "ignored," too. i feel a bit selfish myself when i say this but yes, the same people got their pictures taken over and over again. others didn't hesitate to jump into a photo, while others did because of not wanting to ruin the integrity of the photo. i'm not saying it's bad or anything and i know that ppl tend to be biased about the show (shippuuden, "minor" characters, etc.), but do give others a chance to have their photos taken as well.


in my personal opinion, the gathering wasn't too bad but it got hella whack after a while.
that is all.


I totally agree. I mean it was fun and all, but I did feel a bit like we were getting out of control. And I should know about those poor biased shippuuden characters: I was one. But there were some people there that were really awesome, while there were only a few that spoiled the integrity of it for the rest of us. All the same, I had a great time!
