View Full Version : Animazement: The Countdown

05-01-2003, 09:23 AM
Well, its May 1st at last, and there are officially 24 Days until Animazement 2003. We can say that this little convention is coming and coming fast. The costume rush is going to start soon, and the anticpation is going to come to a fever pitch. So give us your excitement, your raving, and even ranting abou certain things.

So the question is...Are you ready?

05-01-2003, 09:38 AM
im not readay costume wise but im so ready me wise! ^_- ah hee! i cant wait! ^_^_^_^_^_^_^ yahoooooo!!!

05-01-2003, 09:53 AM
Nope, not ready. Got 2 costumes still working on - but not going to make myself sick trying to finish them. If they get done, great - if not - well can always wear them at Otakon.

05-01-2003, 11:18 AM
Nuuuuu! I have so much to do and so much to work on and so much to finish! Eeeeee!

05-01-2003, 11:47 AM
how did it get to be so close?? (don't answer that *^^*) I have way way too much to finish! and Jibrille and I really need to finish deciding what we're wearing when cause we're really silly about that *^^* Still I'm excitied about it and can't wait to see all of you there!

05-01-2003, 12:00 PM
Nope. Still gotta start Shuuin X_X

05-01-2003, 01:28 PM

Cool, looks as though this year is going to be great ^_^ I'm so excited, my AMV this year actually seems cool.. I did one last year, but it was my first AMV and it sucked!.. but I like this one, and this year, i'm going to cosplay! for the first time! yayyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

05-01-2003, 06:39 PM
I'm still adding the finishing touches on my costume. But like the most of you, I am ready ME wise! :)

Your going to be Gendo Ikari?

05-01-2003, 09:52 PM
Flexei and I are taking 5 costumes a piece. So 10 all together. I have 9 completed. The 10th (Sadamitsu) is 90% completed. We just need to add some small details to the helmit. Then..........I'll be done!!!! Ha, ha, ha.....finally :crylaugh:

Hopefully we'll be sending our AMV out in the mail tomorrow.

I saw on the website that the hotel is sold out. I'm glad we made reservations a month ago.

05-01-2003, 09:59 PM
My sister & I were talking about how we are probably going to be attending even more panels then normal - as since no Watase so far - that means no line waiting. Unfortunately, that also means a lot of FYML not planning on coming which is sad that I won't see them this year.
I have definitely been mentally ready for a good bit for the con to be here.
I need to email Marcus to see if he is doing a cel panel again this year - might not since the FY cel collectors not coming together. Hmm

Link Arroway
05-01-2003, 10:06 PM
I look forward to seeing all the new AMVs ^_^. And new everything else of course.. 5 costumes, your going to be busy I see :P cool.
I hope my father made the reservations for me like he said he had >_> If not I'll kill him... He wrote a check for me 3 day pass thing and said he'd mail it in and I wondered why I didn't get a lil thing in the mail back and like a month later (a few days ago), I found it in his things and he was like yeah I'll send it tommarow and he sent it the day after tommarow >_>

05-02-2003, 08:47 AM
AHHHHHHH, I'm still not ready yet. It seems that whenever a con is coming up I'm never ready......... I hope i'm developing a habit here.

05-02-2003, 11:00 AM
I'm more ready than before.... ^^ Just some little things and some pants.... Myahahaha...

minako chan
05-02-2003, 01:32 PM
O.o;;; Oh my goodness,this seems like the panic thread! I'm going to have hitomi done for tomorrow(for a party). I'll work on chii this week and Minako's school uniform the next week. Well, I guess I'm ok then...

Link Arroway
05-02-2003, 01:47 PM
I wanna go to a party >_> I was going to go to one today or tommarow but it was canceled today. Oh well, more time to get ready.. How many days now? About 20 days left! ^_^

05-02-2003, 06:33 PM
ack! i thought i was almost done with just finishing touches to do- and then i realized that my yuffie has no shorts >< i dont know what im gonna do!!!! i can't wear the costume w/ no shorts- i dont have a pattern for shorts AND i gave up on making one bc i could not get it to fit right!!! panic!!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!

05-02-2003, 06:39 PM

Perhaps the panel will turn into a sewing session of people trying to finish their costumes for Saturday. *laugh*

I have a ton to do yet, but I'm not worried. School doesn't start up again for 2 weeks for me, so I have some free time until then.

Link Arroway
05-02-2003, 07:39 PM
Your lucky! I haven't had a break since like spring break, like in March, I think it was. And it was only one week =(

I need to find me some red contacts...

05-02-2003, 08:11 PM
Hey farmboybob goin to be Gendo Ikari eh, I thought you you were goin as the towelében...haha farmboybob (inside joke)

05-02-2003, 08:48 PM
Hmm..let's see.. I have 3 costumes to do and have I started.. Nope!! Somehow I end up making costumes up until the night before and sometimes at the con.. I seriously need to get out of that mood.. I've done it for every con I've been too. -_-``

05-02-2003, 11:59 PM
20 days left....only 15 more school days... *_*

05-03-2003, 09:46 AM
Hey quadrain61, maybe I'll think about it. I still have that costume somewhere in my house!

Wish me luck!

05-04-2003, 02:25 PM
Good luck ShingoBunny, post a picture of the Tetsuo-esque arm when you finish it. I would really like to see it! :)

05-04-2003, 07:42 PM
hrmm... 3 weeks...

money - i am ready
costumes - i am so not ready its not even remotely amusing ><

and at this point i am really just trying to figure out exactly what i am supposed to be even wearing. lol
all i know is my purple Jibrille dress is going to be making its last run at this con.
other than that... hmmm
assassin and tsukasa and ritsuko are definites...
after that we have to see what all i can get finished. lol

thank the gods i get done with school the week before con so i have a whole week to do nothing but sew and sleep! XD

05-04-2003, 11:47 PM
yes you will be at my house sewing like crazy *^^* I will have to keep the babies away from you so you actually work!

As for me the definates are now Sara again, Subaru from .hack//sign and Dark Gunner Yuna. I will probably wear one of my chi costumes again but I haven't decided which one yet.

05-05-2003, 12:09 AM
Thanks, Farmboybob. n_n I need all of the encouragement I can possibly get... ^^;

05-05-2003, 12:24 AM
Haha, I'm not ready at all. I'm always at work from 9 in the morning to 9 at night, so I have no free time >_<; I need to finish my skit costume!! *runs around, arms flailing*

And, get this, I just realized TODAY that her gloves are a different color than her boots. Holy crap. How did I not notice that before?

I have to make my crown for my Anthy Costume. Other then that. I am ready. I can't wait for AZ. :)

05-05-2003, 11:12 AM
What are we at...? This is a countdow, correct? 18 days? @_@;;;; *SPAZZ*

05-05-2003, 02:40 PM
arrrgghhh! why do days keep slipping away from me?? I fell asleep with my kittens today instead of working on my dark gunner costume! i can't wait until Jibrille's finished with classes so so will kick me if i don't work! must get costumes finished!!

05-05-2003, 06:51 PM
Argh, I'm not even conserned with my costumes now, it's just the fact of making them now (and I'm not the one sewing 'em XD)... It the AMV I'm worried about *more panic*

05-05-2003, 07:14 PM
YES!!!! I'm finished. I have all 8 of our new costumes finished with plenty of time to spare. :toothy:

05-05-2003, 07:47 PM
One of my friends is going to let me stay in her room for free (her mother's treat :) ) so as long as I can come up with $98 for greyhound, I can go !

hmmm... IfI wind up going, I should have Robin from WHR done by then (didn't have her done in time for the east coast picnic :( but if I go, linds , you get to see my robin!) . I'll probably have one of my Chii costumes done by then as well. Maybe I'll find a simple costume to do as a 3rd one. Any suggestions?

05-05-2003, 07:50 PM
omg now i think i have yet another costume to finish! i thought i wouldnt be able to finish my chun-li costume, but now i think i can so >< i thought it might be a popular costume to do, but dang! >< lol im ranting!

05-05-2003, 10:21 PM
This weekend it's major sewing time, now that ChibiCon 2k3 is overwith. I will have Chi and Dark Gunner Yuna finished in time for AZ! I cannot wait.

Giant Alucard
05-06-2003, 07:00 AM
I will have no cash to spend at the con now....... All of it is going toward my two costumes and my hotel fee (and we're not even staying in the hotel the con is at; and I don't relish the fact I'll have to take my Hellsing guns outdoors *shiver*). Hopefully I'm not outbided on ebay again so I can aquire the parts I need for my costumes, I also need a magical cane for my Waldo costume................. I am so broke and behind on my work it's not funny.

05-06-2003, 10:14 AM
Giant Alucard me sorry for your luck! which hotel are you staying at tho?! wonder if its the one im at?! ^^ ah hee! i hope you get some monay to spend at the con tho!

05-06-2003, 02:38 PM
accually, I'm not quite sure which hotel we're staying at yet. I think we'll be staying at a near by hotel, less than a block away.

05-06-2003, 02:46 PM
I have been wanting to work on my costume the last 2 nights after Chibi, but been having storms/tornados so no such luck. Maybe Saturday, that is like the only day not expecting storms currently.

05-07-2003, 02:07 AM
I am FINALLY finished with my Yumi costume (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=38801). Thank GOD. All I have left is some bows for sailor venus, and an apron for a Gothic Lolita costume. And two costumes for friends... -.-;
I'm ready financially, I'm almost ready costume-ally, and i'm DEFINITELY ready mentally. Woo!

At least I have my Yuna contacts finally which makes me a happy chu *^^*

05-08-2003, 06:45 PM
Costume wise I may only have time to finish one new costume, I don't want to bring any others I have made to this one. I'm hoping the one I got comissioned will be done, but chances are slim. So right now Marone Bluecarno minus her sword shall be there, and MAYBE my cyber style Chun Li.

Then again...I just pratically decided today I shall definatly be there ^^;;;

wohoooo. Got my red contacts to add to my alucard costume.....yeah. I'm wearing them at school right now, and i've freaked out around.............. 12 people so far who have accually noticed them. I have to go to a some clothing stores to see if i can find a hooded sweater for my Junpei costume and a Snow cap (i thinks thats what it's called) for my waldo costume. I'm accually getting stuff done now, i feel so proud of myself.

05-09-2003, 11:14 AM
AGH! "Ready" -- what means this word??? o.O'
My costume is half way finished. I wish I didn't work so much! I'm going as Steel Angel Kurumi! Everyone look for me please!
Hmm, let's see- I don't have a wig anymore (because the one I ordered was too small...) So that's kinda important-- the only thing that's really finished to the main part of the costume is the SKIRt....
I might need a top though, ne? LOL
I don't have even half the money I want to have and I haven't paid the hotel fee to my mom yet ^.^*
Plus I wanted to have lots of pretty pictures to auction and commission...yadda yadda.......not happenin'! SOMEONE TEACH ME TO USE MY TIME WISELY! *wimper wimper*

05-09-2003, 01:55 PM
Awww Kurumi, that sounds like it sucks. Maybe you'll get lucky, theres still time!

I wanted to get some red contacts for my cosplaying, but I don't think I'll have much money left to spend and I wanna buy lotsa stuff in the dealers room like I did last year.. Altho, last year I lost money from a hole in my pocket or something =o. Anyways, where'd you get your contacts? Red contacts would be cool to go with my Rei Ayanami school uniform costume i'm doing..

05-10-2003, 08:09 AM
squee!! yuffies shorts are done!! ^^ almost done with other costumes too.

05-10-2003, 09:13 AM
Chi is almost completed! All I have to do is make the apron and I'm finished. Then it is off to Dark Gunner Yuna and re-make Celestial Hikaru's armor since the one I had made cannot be found.

05-10-2003, 10:01 AM

Today is the day.

Er.... Well, weekend.

The K'9999 arm WILL be done today! Hmmahahaha.... hahahaha... HAHAHAHA~!!! *coughcough* Well, enought of the laughter. I still have to do some things....

I got the last of my AZ costume shopping done yesterday, but then I got sick and couldn't work on anything ;__; I had only planned on making my skit costume, and then finally wearing Ken from Weiss Kreuz with my best friend as Omi...but since our OTHER two friends won't be there to complete the set, I decided to pull two other costumes out of my ass, instead ^_~ Because I'm insane. So now I'll hopefully have Midler from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Yuri from KoF, as well.

I guess I'd better really get cracking tomorrow after work...

Oh crap..... I am so screwed now. This saturday is my senior prom and I made a decision last saturday that i would accually attend....... But i am in no way ready. I am buying my tickets today, going to reserve my Tux and whatever else i made need. This means I will have limited to no moneys by the time the con comes around. If i don't figure out a way soon, I wont be able to finish my Waldo or my Junpei costume by next week. But i least i will be attending the prom with a cute date of my own choosing (last year i went with a girl I've known my entire life, literally, since she was born two months ahead of me and our parents have wanted to get us together since then. She was extremly HOT, and alot of people wondered how i ended up with her while i was there.............. irony in a sense i guess). I just hope I get through these two weeks without being killed from all the stress *twich, twich* and i will do my best to make my final costumes and upgrade parts of my alucard costume (need to make new boot covers and experiment and making gun holsters inside the coat. ............... Wish me luck everyone.

05-12-2003, 05:13 PM
I might be bring some art to show, too. I have some matted pieces that didn't sell at small con - hopefully they could find an interested party at larger con. One of the problems is I usually just have b&w pen pieces, and colored ones do better.

05-12-2003, 05:59 PM
aww you all are so nice! ^^ ah i tried to contact the people but to no avail and they were cool to just like mais ;_;. Link Arroway i cant wait to see your costumes! evaneko i hope you can gets tons of munay and you and Hikaruchan ^^ im gonna be lookin for your stuff in tha art room i like me some art goodies! cant wait! woo!

05-12-2003, 06:21 PM
Liz-maru: Were they actual socks or the ninja shoes that you can get at martial arts supply stores? Mai wears ninja shoes, but when I made the costume I knew I wasn't gonna be spending all that $$$ on them (there is a martial arts store in China Town in Philly that sells them for a lot) so I just made a pair. All you need is some semi-stretchy black fabric. Just trace your feet and leave enough length to go up your ankle, and then sew around. You can then make a little stitch inside for your big toe.

Does that make any sense at all? I'm not very good at describing things, cuz I usually make it up as I go along. But, anyway, even if you just use regular black socks from Wal-Mart, you should still wear the costume! All hail Mai!!

05-13-2003, 07:46 AM
yeah they were those ninja socks -___- i wish i had time to just make them because you have great ideas on how to do it! i still have some parts of the costume i dont have done tho cause i waited on tha socks so long >< maybe if i get my act together i could bring it! thank you for the help! ^^

05-13-2003, 03:56 PM
good luck liz- i have made socks before pretty much the same way as kou described and it worked pretty well for me ^^ - even if your mai costume doesnt get done im sure you have other pretty ones anyway ^^

Have no clue what panels I'm going to go while I'm there. But i will be making a video for a anime club back at my highschool (even though this is my last year, I'll become a graduate sponser next year), but thats if i can get all the stuff together for my video camera (battery died i guess).

If we manage to pull in the pocky and some other random supplies, then we'll make they vid. Each participant in that vid gets a free giant pocky stick oe a small box of pocky..............

I haven't even started on my costumes yet (tomorrow's the day, I swear...), and I admit I've been kind of fading away from the anime and J-rock scene a LOT in the past year, so I might feel like I don't belong there. But damnit, I'm going, and I'm going to have a BLAST. So yes, I'm ready!

I just finished all of the sewing on my dark gunner costume, its sooo close to done!! But i think I've been going a little stir crazy from sewing too long. I just turned my stuffed rabbit into a rather dapper pirate looking bunny because of a pic from Count Cain I found.

I think I need some help.................... O_o

though the bunny will be coming with to animazement *insane laughter*

05-15-2003, 08:03 PM

i am soooo almost ready- all i have left to finish is a couple non-essential accessories for chii and yuffies shorts need to be hemmed ^^ then im done- but my friend has decided that between today and tomorrow she needs ME to sew ALL of HER costume... so chii might be missing a few things... :(

05-20-2003, 11:05 AM
I SHOULD be going to get the last parts of Kensou costume. I can fix Kyo on the way up (I'm skilled in the art of car sewing). K'9999's boots should be finished as well by tonight... *crosses fingers*

05-20-2003, 11:24 AM
Evaneko: It will be just fine! You can do it! I look foward to seeing you Chi costume at the con!

Today is packing day for me and getting some food. I tend not to eat a lot at cons just drink lots of fluids. This time tomorrow I'll be on the road on my way to AZ.

05-20-2003, 11:28 AM
Packing... I've started to choose clothing out that I want to take and stuff.. n_n I'm proud of myself for getting this far, lol!

Bleh... you and me both, Alucard.... I'm not sure if I'll be getting there when I planned to (Thursday night).

05-20-2003, 04:11 PM
Well, Marone Bluecarno was just about finished but unfortunatly I won't be able to see my friend in Brooklyn before AZ...and she was the one who styled my wig and I really would wait to wear that costume till I have the wig.

And my commissioned costume wasn't finished as I assumed it wouldn't so this may be the ONLY con I think I shall be attending without costumes. Gives me more chances to take pics on my own atleast!

But on the bright side, almost done packing asides from toiletries and electronics ^^ Just have to buy some food.

This is my first time at Animazement, and is my fifth con i've been to so far. I'll be sure to say hi to you Jessi, i just hope im able to find people.

My Junpei sweater is done..... but there was a tiny mistake. I had to let my brother do the back of the sweater when i left for work. When i got home he said it was done and should me how it looked. It said "GOT L337" and looked ok, except for the fact the the two 3's in L337 were backwards........... And they dont come off once they go on (not unless i want to ripe a few holes in it anyway), so i guess it will work for now). I'm trying to design Hellsing gun holster out of a black belt, two coat hangers and some rubberbands....... makes me feel like Mcguyver right now, i just hope they do what i think they will do. I must be L337 and get this stuff done buy tonight. OS!!!!!! (from Naruto, it stands for persivierence I believe, and is really just fun to say sometimes)
