Anyone planning on cosplaying as someone from Ouran High School Host Club at NAF this year?

My friend and I are planning on covering all four -nozuka brothers/cousins over the weekend (probably Yasuchika and Satoshi on Saturday, and Honey and Mori on Sunday).

It would be great to get a whole host club together, if enough people were interested. ^_^

I'm debating over a costume for Sunday,

I might do Haruhi, and I have some friends that might be willing to be the twins. :)

Yay!

I know at least one more person if not two are gonna be coming as Haruhi... I'm suprised I've heard of no one doing Tama-chan yet.

If they were the twins, that would be awesome!

well, as box_of_doom already knows I'll be Mori and Satoshi.

Nice to meet you Haruhi who has friends who might be willing to be twins! ^^

We're trying to do an in character host club panel (if we get approved)... but we only have a honey, a mori, and a haruhi for it so far... T-T

Just to clarify on what two_powers said, there IS gonna be an IC (or, mostly IC) Ouran panel. We've got a Honey, a Haruhi, and a Mori, but most of us are flexible and will take on other parts if needed.

We would REALLY like to get a Kyouya and a Tamaki and the twins, but if ANYONE is interested in helping out, please let us know (post here or PM me) and we'll try to get you involved.

(And, as extra incentive, we're bringing CAKE!)

Will you be going on Saturday or Sunday?

We'll be going both days, but the IC panel will be on Sunday.
Would you or your friends be interested in taking part?

Pharasight
06-30-2007, 03:28 PM
Yeah, I'm coming as Haruhi.

(If your other friend ends up coming as Haruhi, I'll be Kyouya. Tell me soon though!)

One of them said that they will go as Hikaru only if the other person goes as well [as Kaoru], and I'm currently trying to get a hold of the other person. I'll get back to you tomorrow. (July 1st)

Okay..so Ouran for Sunday. (Missed your first post, sorry.)

Hey, this is the friend that is going to be Hikaru on sunday and I will be going as Hikaru (with or without Kaoru)on the sunday. As for the Kaoru, I'm not sure wether or not he'll be coming but there is a possibility he will be there, so we probably won't know until middle week or so. But ya I'll be there so there's one more ouran character.

Well, twin or twinless, it's great to have you onboard! ^_^

I hope the Kaoru comes through though... Hikaru's a lot moodier without his other half. :P

YAY! So this just means we need a Tamaki (who would have thought HE'd be the hardest to get @.@)... and maybe/maybe not a Kaoru.

The panels is approved, the club is coming together, and box_of_doom and I have finally decided on what sort of cake to bring!
Yes we will be serving cake at the panel (this is what happens when Honey and Mori cosplayers are left in charge of planning this sort of thing :D)

As a side note there was a maybe AND a definitely on our Kyouya...
Since the maybe didn't have a costume yet we're gonna see if she'd like to play Nekozawa (as I have the costume and won't be using it)...

And we thought of an amusing way to explain Tamaki's absence if we can't get a (Honey OR Mori (since me and box_of_doom could play the part if someone wanted to take over the current roles) Or Tamaki ) by the 15th...

No... there's just one Kyouya. =P Your information is out of date.

Said "maybe" is probably not coming at all... according to the last time I spoke with her (this morning). So no Nekozawa either. As of right now, at least. ;)


And XD yes. Honey wants cake, Mori's not gonna say no, and it's added incentive for people to come. And leftovers can always be given to the 404s when they come afterwards. =P

two_powers
07-02-2007, 12:24 PM
Lol, out of date as of this morning. That means if someone want to play a Nekozawa, I got a costume ^^

Lol, Mori really can't say no (unless he's punishing himslef, but I don't think that the case here)

Pharasight
07-02-2007, 12:27 PM
We could a put up a sign on the wall saying, "Have you seen this idoit?" on the wall with a picture of Tamaki. I don't know..XD

God, Kyouya's going to be hard for me...not manly enough...XD

Time to recruit another Kyouya! (If I can...*goes to phone*)

Edit: Whoot, my friend is willing to be Kyouya! He said he'd do his fancy white-tuxedo outfit though. :)

So, I'll go as another Haruhi...and all we need is Tamaki..XD

box of doom
07-02-2007, 12:49 PM
Ooh! Smexy Kouya~! Niiiice.

So... yes. A Tamaki is all that's needed. Or a Mori, if we can find someone tall and willing (our current Mori is short, but she pulls the role off well ^^).

XDDD Actually... the idea we had was having Tamaki caught in traffic (which may or may not be Kyouya's fault). He calls and is put on speakerphone (easy enough to do with pre-recorded ringing and voice work and a CD-player) and says hi or complains to Kyouya or something.... and then we hang up on him. =P

07-02-2007, 01:11 PM
(I like that idea!)
Got some problems/worries about the panel:

-Will it be a stage or tables and chairs?
If Stage: It'd be hard for a re-enactment
-Are we allowed to decorate/alter the room?
If we are not: Well...it'd be awkward~
-How many people will go to it?
If there are too many or too little, it'd be tricky. But we could have 1:3 host to clients, or have some hosts 'take a break'..(AN: We might be like molested by 42 year old pedophiles!)
-Is there a plan for this panel? Or improve? I think there should be some incident re-enactments. And play can-kicking...haha

That is all, yes...I may be a little too worried..XD

two_powers
07-02-2007, 01:16 PM
Hehe.... especially since we'll be having male cosplayers in the group.... ummm yeah a taller Mori would be nice! ... as it is I'll be wearing heels... and may or may not be sitting on a phone book....

Non-uniform costumes are welcome. And for those that don't want to do much work the manga summer uniform is also welcome! (no blazer, short sleeve white button down shirt with coller and pocket on... left if I'm not mistaken.... and loose worn black tie with the customary purple stripe down the center)

I haven't been to Northern Anime... but judging from other con's panels I doubt there will be a stage... usually panelists sit at a table facing their 'audience'....
Mostly re-enactment will take place around the usual panel style Q&A sessions... mostly improv between the characters there. Some can be planned out if we meet ahead of time.
We get some setup time so decorating can be done.

Cake will be served about halfway through and depending on the crowd that turns up we can split of into the typical host club meeting after that.

I wouldn't worry too much about the pedophiles. This is Oshawa, not Toronto, and in a school, and we'll be a fairly decent sized group...
Besides if anyone is really getting out of had, this Morinozuka has been practicing martial arts for over half her life and can be called upon to 'gently' escort them to the door. (GYH it's SOOO in character too!)

box of doom
07-02-2007, 01:39 PM
Actually... I don't have answers to some of those questions, and they're good ones. Please forgive my lack of answers... this is my first time doing something like this!

I was planning on waiting and finding out what the room was like when I go there on Saturday (we're running two other panels then), but I think I'm gonna go ahead and email some of these questions, so we can make sure that our options ARE in fact as open as we want them to be.

As for decoration... I'd say we're fine so long as we can take it down/put it up quickly (there's a group right after us...and before).

Doing improv for most of it would probably be best unless we all wanna try to get together next weekend or something @.@.... but some reenactment would be good too. We can either plan out stuff here, via PMS/email, or get together some time before the panel that weekend too... we probably should be there a little early at least so we can make sure everything's gonna go smoothly.

As to how many people.... I think that's totally up to who WANTS to come. ^^;;; There's only one panel at a time, but then, it's a small con. Soooooo.... *shrugs*


But you're not too worried. It's better to overplan this thing and have it go perfectly than have it go horribly due to no one knowing WTF is going on. ^^

We will make this awesome! I'm sure of it!



Also... I don't think we can do kick-the-can or anything like that IN the panel necessarily... but we could always do such before or after! (Bwahahaaaaaa)

Pharasight
07-02-2007, 01:45 PM
Oh okay, I'll just do whatever you guys have planned and nod and smile when there is WTF moment.

Kick the can is bast done outside.... does anyone want to bring a can? ^^

Your in UA1120 (unless tech. issues causes the relocation of the room) but the room is layed our in lecture theater style. Similar to like the Movie theaters without the sticky floors.

Decorating the room is fine, however ensure you clean up afterwards for the workshop that is directly after you.

Pedophiles will be kicked out of the convention the minute one is report, if not legal action taken against them first. We are family friendly event and will not tolerate such behavior from people ^^

We're oh so totally open to alterations of plan. So if you have any ideas, brainstorming is love. ^.^


....and it might be hard to do designations with the room's layout... but we can either have a time for socializing or just host them all together.... (bwahaha...?)

two_powers
07-02-2007, 02:03 PM
Lecture theater huh? So there will be lots of chairs and tables all in rows facing the relative front of the room, with a presenting area area at the front.

The main question then is; is the seating movable or not?

If so it's pretty open-ended what we can do... otherwise it will be a strict club members presenting at front, guests forming audience. My uni (in scarborough) has both styles of lecture hall... so we'll see.
If not it could make the improv panel a bit interesting as well...

I'm very open to suggestions... and playing along with stuff people decide to improv on the spot. :D

Uhhh... I think more like tablets than tables.
...you're not used to being in that kind of room, are you, oh comp sci student.

We're definitely gonna need some movable chairs for US if at all possible, but it'll be more like a movie theatre, like tsukasa_1 said, than a movable tables-and-chairs setup.

And actually, it'll work well for our improv panel, Victoria.... everyone can see the "stage area", and we can have people come down from their seats to take part.

.

Oh I'm used to them. One room with the swing out style put a hole through my leather coat once. I can't use my laptop in that lecture cause they're too small. And every time I see "kureno" (who is a rather tall boy in all my classes this semester) get up from one of the seats with the non-swing out style ones I'm half afraid he's gonna fall on his face... overall very inconvenient for a panel room
Yeah ..... this is me having issues with tablets. sorry:P

Charis are movable to my knownlege bit !tables (not the tables).

I think I can picture the style then. It should be fine for the host club, so long as we DON'T try to pull off a true host club meeting style.
I'm still worried about how much room we'll have at the front for the improv games though. Most of the rooms I've seen like that didn't have much... well they would be ok if not for the table/counters placed there for the teachers to rest stuff on.... will there be anything like that at the front that isn't movable?

box of doom
07-02-2007, 03:33 PM
Trust me, I'm used to running stuff in makeshift spaces. ^^
That's what I get for volunteering at churchcamps. =P

We probably should come up with a more solid plan of what we want to do though.... Is there any way we could get a group mailing list going so we can discuss stuff back and forth? *looks at the other people involved*

Tsukasa_1
07-03-2007, 09:17 PM
There is stuff in the front. Now if you wanted to do actually "hosting" we do have a dining room after your panel you could "host" at....

After watching some of this series yesterday, I can never look at twins the same...

Personally, I think that would be WONDERFUL! ^_^

(XD There's nothing more than suggestive between anyone in the series. Those two are just more.... blatant about their suggestions than anyone else. Well... except Tamaki, but that guy just fails at subtlety.)


Edit On a totally unrelated note... I have a prototype for a "Lost Idiot" Poster.

Waa! I love the dining room thing! *snicker* it would particularly awesome if we had a lot of left over cake :P
Hehe, and I love the poster. :D PUPPY EYES!!!!!!
Now it just needs a reward for return....... CAKE! (well our Honey IS the one writing them thus far ^^)

I wonder if I couldn't do a 'mori is getting sleepy and is thus is being guided off for a nap by honey' during the panel... then pull a slight change of costume and have Tamaki wander in with arms full of "neat commoner stuff" a few minutes later.
It'd be a little hectic though... and it'll really just be a wig change and thus very noticeable.....

but...
"Ahhhhh so THIS is where the panel was supposed to be! Well have no fear now that I am here this panel can finally get under way! On behalf of the host I bid you all welcome-"
"Tamaki" *pushes up glasses* "as much as I hate to burst your bubble, the panel just finished. You've missed the entire thing."
*a certain blond club president emoes in a corner*

and....
SLEEPY MORI!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, we need a script don't we..^^;;

box of doom
07-05-2007, 05:40 PM
Well, parts can certainly be scripted.. at least loosely. ^_~


And the Tamaki idea is great... but I'm just wondering how this would work with the hosting. If we were doing both seperately, then it wouldn't make sense for Tamaki to be gone again, would it? Unless you would stay him.... but then Mizu would be all alooooone.

(Mizu = Mitsukuni. Long story.)

box of doom
07-05-2007, 10:12 PM
OK. I just tried to send an email out to everyone... and just under half the emails bounced. T_T

On another note, something I didn't cover there is flowers.
Two_powers and I plan to bring 2 flowers for everyone -- a red one and a one of the correct colour for the hosts. Yes, we're even doing two for the Haruhis, I think (so that your correct colour ones are of the same/a simmilar type to the rest of us). These'll mostly be for photo purposes.

The two of us are also bringing flowers to hand out. If you guys want to do that too, then bring some roses and have fun giving them out! We did this at AN, it was awesome. I'll have pink ones, she'll have red ones (we couldn't find a proper shade of blue rose T_T). ^^

The Pie Ninja
07-05-2007, 10:25 PM
I still have the roses I got sitting on top of my manga. That's a fun idea.
Well I can help decorate things and such. Since I'm a big loser and love decorating to make things look all pretty and spiffy (Heh heh spiffy).

Claire... That was one long email. Jeez.

It would be great to get a Tamaki and have him like... cultivating mushrooms and such. Though, Mori's idea is still made of win.

Pharasight
07-06-2007, 01:29 PM
Gah...I need the E-mail, XD

Do you have it drafted of saved? POst it on the forum or something...

Roses...real or fake?

box of doom
07-06-2007, 03:59 PM
Fake roses. And there's an idea. I'll mass PM it to everyone. ^^;;;

Though I still prefer email.....

two_powers
07-06-2007, 04:05 PM
Think you can include my response to it (which also bounced)?

For the cake serving it might be good to have some of us go around taking orders( as we have a couple choices), some of us preparing the orders (as one of the less talkative members of the club I'll probably help out with this...) and some of us deliver the order.... or all of us could try to do all the parts but we could easily start running into each other @.@

If I do the whole Tamaki wanders in at the end thing I'll probably record a phone call of him saying he got lost on the way to the con... and burn it to CD... if my if my sound editing programs don't fail me, that is.
Think our Kyouya would be up for playing along with a speaker phone call from our oh so beloved baka tono?

box of doom
07-06-2007, 04:15 PM
I think we'd be fine without that... especially if we had the posters up and about. ^^;

I mass sent the email to everyone over pms. if you're gonna respond there, then make sure to include everyone. And if anyone knows how to get our Kyouya or Kaoru (I'm counting him as in for now...) involved in this, that would be awesome too.

I'd still prefer email, but if this is what works, then this is what works.

What exactly DO we have in the way of cake, again?

Yeah true... Mage (my desktop computer, yes I name my computers) would have to be speaker-less for a while if I did want to do that. But I still wanna test my programs to see if they're still working so *shrug* I can probably test it on something else then.


What exactly DO we have in the way of cake, again?


Hmmm the brownies, and probably a plain white cake....
Potential toppings we're thinking of for the brownies and cake are cool whip (I'll get chocolate and regular cool whip) and fresh berries.
I'll go out and get the berries, wash, and prepare them Saturday night... I'm thinking Strawberries and Raspberries.... but if the Rasberries don't look good I may go for Blueberries instead....

@.@ Our guests are actually gonna have quite a bit of choice!
(brownie or cake) with (chocolate or regular cool whip) and (strawberries or ras/blueberries)
Also I'll bring in some fruit punch and perhaps some apple juice for the panel... just cause the host club would be thorough like that :D

If we're hosting and run out of this stuff at the panel, I'll run out to a grocery store and get a large rectangular cake to serve in the dining room.
I'll probably keep the kettle and tea bags in my car so if we can get some sort of tea cups to serve tea in, we can have that as drinks there as well as any juice that may or may not be left over for hosting.

two_powers
07-07-2007, 10:47 PM

.... still have to figure out the tableware situation though... Tamaki would try to use disposable since it a commoner thing... but Kyouya wouldn't let him for real hosting... and we don't have a Tamaki T_T
*sigh* Maybe if Haruhi happened to mention how cheap it is to Kyouya somehow...

YAY! The berries will officially be Strawberries and Blueberries!
I just found out a grocery store really close to where I live is having a really good sale on all three berries during the week... so I'll probably be getting them Thursday or Friday morning and keep them the fridge.

And ... yeah I really don't trust raspberries to keep any more than a day.... And they'll probably be sold out if I wait any later than that....
So Strawberries and Blueberries it is!

box of doom
07-07-2007, 11:02 PM
The other option is to not have tea. Which would be easier... especially if we don't know how many people we're gonna have show up (which we don't). Honestly, I think I DO have enough tableware to furnish us... I'd just be REALLY scared of bringing it in. :S And I dunno if my mom would even agree to it, as they're hers.

Hehe cake's all baked... it's not as light as I'd like but it's yummy goes well with strawberries and blueberries all the same ^^ (I made a smaller one to sample at the same time as the big one so I could know how it turned out :D)

Got the berries as planned, I was worried about them not keeping till Sunday but it looks like they'll not only keep but be nice and sweet on top of it :D

I finished modifying my Tamaki wig for his brief appearance at the panel (if we can't find a Tamaki for the whole thing that is) it doesn't look half bad in my opinion. Especially since I'm doing a cut paste (well more like cut and gel :P) job of it.

The supplies are as organized as they can get. I even found the kettle I wanted to bring and washed it up... so there can indeed be tea for the hosting! (I wouldn't suggest trying tea for the panel. @.@)

This means I'm on schedule and have accomplished everything I planned to by this point... SWEET!!! I hope the rest of the con goes as well.

*thinks* lets see shinai, 'bat' ball, pillow, random piece of red cloth, plastic bag... that sould be good for a few improv props... maybe one of my sunflowers can join in too...
And I should bring a pen... you never know when you'll need a pen... maybe a few sticky notes too... cause there's no arguing with a sticky note. And I CAN'T forget my camera!
... oh yeah I wanted to print come colouring pages for another panel... of to do that now ^^

Then I think I'm ready!!!!

I think I'm ready. Just need to discuss with you and Claire about the decorations. Need to plan more~
My costume is done as it's going to be (er... after I sew the part of the school logo thing that I forgot to sew on properly due to cursing of pain from jabbing my finger with needle too much >_>).

NAF is so close!! Can't wait to see you all there!

Hehe cake's all baked... it's not as light as I'd like but it's yummy goes well with strawberries and blueberries all the same ^^ (I made a smaller one to sample at the same time as the big one so I could know how it turned out :D)

Got the berries as planned, I was worried about them not keeping till Sunday but it looks like they'll not only keep but be nice and sweet on top of it :D

I finished modifying my Tamaki wig for his brief appearance at the panel (if we can't find a Tamaki for the whole thing that is) it doesn't look half bad in my opinion. Especially since I'm doing a cut paste (well more like cut and gel :P) job of it.

The supplies are as organized as they can get. I even found the kettle I wanted to bring and washed it up... so there can indeed be tea for the hosting! (I wouldn't suggest trying tea for the panel. @.@)

This means I'm on schedule and have accomplished everything I planned to by this point... SWEET!!! I hope the rest of the con goes as well.

DON'T FORGET YOUR SHINAI.
FOR THE LOVE OF COSPLAY, DO NOT FORGET YOUR SHINAI.


As for me.... my costume's been done for ages. (meaning.... Tuesday. ^^;)

I'm still working on posters, then I'll print off the rest of them and a list of trivia for another panel... I burned a CD with masq stuff....

Have to organize my stuffs tonight. Will do that before going to bed. ^^

I've got my shinai by the door with my shoes. It will not be forgotten :D
I also burned the masq stuff so were all set for that!
And my Satoshi costume is officially finished, just gotta do my hair again tomorrow.
I printed the colouring pages, BUT the only thing I've got to colour with is gel pen.... think the dollar store has crayons? I've gotta hit a bank before the con tomorrow anyway...

And decorations are probably best planned after we've st least seen the rooms...
I'm not sure we really NEED decorations for the panel room (though some might be nice... like lost idiot posters ^^ and whatever else people want to bring), but we'd definitely want a certain look for the dining room. If they have something to play music we'll have a selection from the ouran sound track going as background... if they don't we'll see how big the room is and weather or not we can get something portable in to play the music...

And yeah table cloths... if there aren't any I really can't see the host club overlooking the lack of them. The disposable plates and forks and stuff aren't very Ouran, but are convenient... and not breakable. *sigh* what colour table cloths go best with white and disposable?

And yeah would we want centerpieces for the tables? ... and can we get something cheap quick and in an appropriate number? *thinks* I wonder... I've got some relatively large pieces of paper... if the table aren't too big maybe I can fold some large paper cranes for center pieces....that would be actually kinda nice... while still being cheap and easy :D

We've got two little packs of red rose pettels that can be scattered too. I would suggest doing this in the panel room since it's easy to loose them... but for pictures they're great. And they can probably be use to decorate table tops too add colour to offset the white disposable stuff....

Umm are there any other little details like that anyone can think of??

*tries to make a paper crane to get a sense of what size table it would go with*

Thanks so much to everyone who took part, and who came and watched us yesterday!

It was a lot of fun (even if none of us knew what we were doing half of the time... ^^;;;;;;; (I'm sorry!!!!!)) and I hope you all enjoyed yourselves.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! ^^

Also, if anyone has any suggestions on things that could have been done better, please say so. Because I know that there was a little talk about running something like this next year either here, at AN or both... and so any input into how to make this kind of IC thing better would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, I support the idea of us doing it again next year! We could do one of their fancy club costumes! It would be fun doing the matrix, or pirate one, XD.

My sister and I(The Kaidoh and the Fuji from Prince of Tennis) were thinking of weraing our Ouran twins uniform and going as the twins, and if you'd like, we'd definately help out! (also I loved the posters, in fact, I think I still have 4 of them lol)

Is there any way you could scan them for me? Since I kinda... didn't think to?

I love doing the whole "Mori threw out the can cause it would have hit Honey" thing

Well at least we've got a lot of time to look for a Tamaki if we want to do this again.
And I'd love to do another costume for them ^^
... just I'd probably be better off playing a different character (due to height and sore feet from those shoes. Maybe I just needed to get used to them more...). Well I still have the Tamaki wig... if I let my hair grow out a bit (and the dye fade) it might work better too...

soooo, maybe it would be more like.... trying to find a Mori?

If we do an Anime North hosting event I'd adore playing "Satoshi trying to host"... especially since finding a complete host club for that shouldn't be near as difficult :D

Hehe if you did this at AN or next year I'd be willing to participate to help out. ^_^ perhaps cosplay as either Tamaki or Haruhi.

It was loads of fun. XD

XD if there were actually hosting involved, I love being Honey.
However, if two_powers is going as Satoshi, why do I have the feeling I'll be roped into Chika anyways? =P (Chika is fun too. ^_~)

And you wanna be Tama-chan now? I thought you were aiming for Kyou-chan! @.@

The panel was crap, (maybe if we planned it better) and as for the Dinning room hosting that went poorly at my table (if that one blonde dude wasn't there then i would have lost my sanity) as for your table i dont know... But if we do this next year we have to plan it better...

In our defence, it's VERY hard to properly organize things when you don't know how to contact half the people involved.

And personally, I loved the hosting half, though I agree that the panel REALLY needed more oganization.
