Heyas ^^; (tis the Toshiya from Ohayocon shorty!) Anyways...

I can't wait for Otakon. My friends and I already are working on our project. SPREAD BEAVER! How scary is that. Other than that...well when it comes to cosplay, we never truly know what the future holds. Maybe we'll have our Diru cosplay along with us?

I guess I'll be seeing you there ^^ (And at Acen? I'll be Shun of Duel Jewel)

Oh wow!! Myaku cosplay!! I'll cosplay happy Kao-kao!! ^^;;; It's cuz I have his costume just laying around, and it looks so lonely ;-; and I really liked that dress...har har i kinda screwed over the pants so i need new ones...and i need to find the bones to sew back on.........>> or go to KFC again XDDD (everyone enjoyed my chicken bones XDDDDD) Wah~~

.....Wait--which day? I'm also cosplaying CAGE Kaoru --- ...ah, we still need a die and kyo.

Hihi effey! coolness, hey, i might be able to pull off a cage kyo for you ^-^

04-08-2003, 10:55 PM
WAHHH~~REALLY?!! *glomp* you're so cool~~yay! Now all we need is a Die-----hmm maybe I'll try to drag my fanboy from N.C. to cosplay him.....even though his mother would probably beat me with a stick o.o

04-08-2003, 10:57 PM
Lol! I'm loved ^-^! I have waaaaay too many ppl to hang out with at my cons but Kyo-chan is my fave ^-^ you should see the pics of her ^-^

04-08-2003, 11:02 PM
Yay--feel special! You're loved!

Kyo-chan?? I wanna seee~~~ Furu...I usually begin with like 3 or 4 people, then end up with finding like 10 other people i recognized from some other place/con/etc....then we wander and get lost, and yeah....it's fun. ^^;;;;; (i saw cosplays at the sakura festival thing last weekend and i recognized them from katsu XDDD i felt special.) ^^;;; i'm a loser........

(then again, val didn't say that to me, so I'm not officially a loser yet!! my best friend to val during autograph thing: *tries to unravel poster unsucessfully* Ah, I'm such a loser.........
Val: Yes, you are. ^^;;; )

isn't she adoreable???!!! I'm still in contact with her ;3 as a matter of fact Bansaku-chan up there^ *points to first reply on forum* was the Toshiya in Kyo-can's cosploay group.

04-08-2003, 11:13 PM
wahhh~~She IS so cuteeee ^^ Nyu!

hehe that's so cool~I wandered around with a Toshiya last otakon...wah, it was really random...no one recognized her since she just threw something together...and i haven't seen a single picture of me yet XDD

*doing this while trying to fix website....hey, i have my duel jewel autographs scanned in here?? o.o*

04-08-2003, 11:14 PM
i wanna see!!

04-08-2003, 11:19 PM
The duel jewel autograph? or our photos? (We don't have a photo of ourselves...>> i always forget to cuz i'm lazy...and my camera accidentally deleted our suikoden picture ;-;)

but the autograph is at http://gothicaznmafia.keenspace.com/images/dueljewelautograph.gif
^^;;; haha, i didn't have anything for them to sign, and so i gave them a random book in my backpack~! Haha, it was funny...i swear people wanted to beat me up cuz i was so annoying

04-08-2003, 11:21 PM
*cries* the link wont work

04-08-2003, 11:23 PM
wahhh~~ really?
i just fixed it--try again then! (i'm so bad at spelling ;-;)

04-08-2003, 11:25 PM
I am now completely amazed with myself ^-^ i can tell everyone's autographs apart ^-^

04-08-2003, 11:29 PM
yay! good job---haha we spent the cosplay line trying to figure out the signatures....actually we just couldn't figure out what that random squiggly line at the top of yuya's signature was ^^;;;; (we still don't know!!) but i got to hug natsuki~(along with everyone else...but still~)his hair was soft XDDDD (i'm random. yay....here is where i put like a random shameless self-promo or etc.) yeah...uhm-----haha so which day should we do myaku? (...can't do saturday night tho--i get cosplay saki, and carry a plushie version of his head and spinal column in a clear tube XDDDDD)

04-09-2003, 03:28 PM
Well, I can't do any Myaku cosplay but some friends of mine and i are doing FILTH Dir en grey sometime during Otakon. ^^ Hope to see you there. Oh, and Effey, was the Toshiya you were with happen to be named Siobahnne? (pronounced Shevan) With like black wig, black skirt, almost looked like a waitress outfit? lol ^^; Cause that would be my good friend Sio. Oh, and were you Kazuki at Katsu by any chance?

04-09-2003, 09:39 PM
no, ^^; that wasn't me. I think i saw her though...^^;;; there were so many Toshiya....haha my friend was the one that was not recognizable at all...she just kinda looked normal >>
Was your Toshiya the really tall one with the shiny silver strip on her head, and the Kaoru X Toshiya bag?? (Wah! She was so cool! I just walked into Otakon, and Toshiya runs over and hugs me ^^ It made me so happy!)

I was ever more unrecognizable at Katsu...I was doing Verte Aile (silent movie version) Kami on Saturday, then Tsuzuki Asato on Saturday night--Hehe, people knew that I was Bocchan of suiko on friday night though so that was okay ^^;;;;

04-09-2003, 09:41 PM
arg, now i'm not sure that i can be in your cage group or if i need a myaku group. One of my freinds wants to match me at otakon.

"isn't she adoreable???!!! I'm still in contact with her ;3 as a matter of fact Bansaku-chan up there^ *points to first reply on forum* was the Toshiya in Kyo-can's cosploay group."

Um...no. I was the Die from that group, and it was BANSAKU's cosplay group, not Kyo's. Bansaku organized it, concieved the basic idea, and oversaw all costume construction. Kyo-chan didn't even make her own costume.

^^ I don't mean to be anal about this, but I wouldn't want people to get the wrong idea about credits and such.

I guess I'll be seeing you at Otakon (and ACen) ^_^

04-10-2003, 01:18 PM
hihi! i did already know that, i just worded it wrong.

04-10-2003, 02:53 PM
Effey - Yes, that was her! Ah, I think you must've been the girl dressed as Kaoru we saw. Yeah, she went over and hugged you because we had been looking for a Kaoru all day for her and she finally found one, lol.

Oooh. I wish I had seen that. I'm really really tempted to do Gackt from that since I think I've got the same shirt as him thouh I'd have to watch it again soon to check. ^^; I do in a way kinda want to some day do a group for that just for fun, lol. I doubt it will happen though because I've got so many other cosplay plans as it is. ^^;;

Well, don't feel bad. I went as Kira from Angel Sanctuary at Katsu and no one recognized me either, lol.

04-10-2003, 05:14 PM
And, all of a sudden everyone's coming to ACen...hehe, this is great. Does anyone know what day the j-rock panel's gonna be for then (or if there is one)? No one seems to know who's running it.

04-10-2003, 06:35 PM
Ah, you don't need a myaku kao-kao--ah, haha watch me cosplay him again just because kaokao's my god ^^;;; (and i'll have to go find another kyo cosplayer.....let's see if i can drag my fanboy~)

Wah~really, Lyn (hm...I've heard that name before i think o.o) i loved the kaokao x toshiya bag~~neeee, how was it made?? (yes, we're all trying to figure out)

*randomly visiting your website* *gasp* WAHH~~I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE!! IT HAS LAWR!!! *sob* (I am such a HUGE Lawr fan!!) and it has a picture of me!! Yay! Hehe....i'll have to link to your site sometime (I felt really sad that i didn't get a picture of you guys--i couldn't figure out how to use my camera at the time ^^;;; ) Wahhh I feel so loved now ^^. ---neeee, (>> I go off topic way too much) you're my hero now! You choose the coolest characters to cosplay. ^^ Wah~Cosplay Cain with me!! (I tried to cosplay him at Katsu, but I forgot the hat at home so I stole Mimi's outfits and went with Verte Aile....) ...Please?

04-10-2003, 06:46 PM
Well, the bag was actually a guitar carrying bag that Sio had. We printed out the picture of Kaoru x Toshiya and just glued it to the bag and outlined it in fabric paint and added the "Kaoru loves Totchi" to it. ^_^

Wah! Another Boy's Next Door fan! I love Lawr!! And well, my site needs major work right now. I haven't gotten all the stuff up there that I want and I need to work a lot on the graphics. ^^;

Actually I'm hoping to get a Count Cain cosplay group going at either (or at both) Katsucon and/or Otakon next year. This year I'm bringing like 4 or 5 costumes to Otakon so I don't think I'd have time to do any other costumes but I can do it with you next year. My friend Claire is going to be Michala and my friend Jamie might be Riff (but she can prolly only go to Otakon).

04-10-2003, 07:48 PM
well, it might still be cool to have the whole Myaku group running around at otakon ^-^ perhaps we could do a photoshoot

"And, all of a sudden everyone's coming to ACen...hehe, this is great. Does anyone know what day the j-rock panel's gonna be for then (or if there is one)? No one seems to know who's running it."

Sorry to be so off-subject..but..

Hey Yui ^^; I do have an answer for that one! The Jrock Panel is scheduled right now for Friday at 2. The coordinator told me it may change, but that's what's planned as of now. Basically so it doesn't interfere with any of the Duel Jewel events (originally they had it right before the concert and I was concerned everyone'd be in line x___x )

There definitely is one, because I'm running it ^^; Along with Pata at my side. We've been working on the discussion outline and stuff to do a lot these last two weeks, as well as making panel promotion and general information flyers...yadda yadda. We're trying to make this good since it's the only other Jrock event they have (Ah the tiny minds of Acen people -.-) besides the concert/Duel Jewel stuff. We really need to start posting about attendence and such....but with 35 days, and cosplay...it's been incredibly busy! Forgive our lazy @$$es.

Can't wait to see your Lida costume *loves Psycho*. If you wear it to the panel you'll probably be made to model it when we talk about Visual Kei ^_^ We intended on bringing up Psycho as one of the few examples of true visual still active and popular. I was going to cosplay as Yura-sama for that purpose but I ended up holding it off until Otakon x_x;

Anyways, I'm really rambling and being completely off-subject...heh! But there's the answer to your question! ^^;
