9:00 PM
Meet in the lobby

There's not a theme. Wear your costume, wear pajamas, wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.

there'll be Nintendo monopoly, DS pokemans traiding and download playing, nintendo discussions, and whatever else you can think of.

and line dances! prepare yourself to Macarena, Cha Cha Slide, Chicken Dance, and Caramelldansen until you drop. 8D.

Bring WHATEVER you see fit. for reals, we're just going to fool around nintendo style for a while. :3

I'm so gonna be in this! I <3 Nintendo~

And by nintendo, by the way, I don't mean just nintendo-specific games. My friend's going as Vyse from Skies of Arcadia: Legends, for example, and since it's a Gamecube game he'd by more than welcome.

... weird thing to post like a bajillion years after making the thread, admittedly, but I've had questions from friends about it. So there you go-- if your game has been on a nintendo system, you're nintendo. 8D SO COME JOIN US PLEEZ.

I'm sure a lot of people who are going to the epic Smash/Nintendo shoot at A-Kon will be at A-Fest as well!
Depending on when the shoot is, I'll probably be there as Peach. :)

03-29-2008, 02:37 PM
I'm so excited~! I saw your Peach costume last year and absolutely loved it, I hope you'll come to the shoot.

So I'm thinking we'll also call up by series-- Mario, Zelda, that kind of thing.

Also, another idea my brother and I discussed was tetris block props. Like, taking boxes and painting them like tetris blocks for photoshoot backdrops and stuff. Yay or nay?

04-07-2008, 10:53 PM
A Nintendo photoshoot would be awesome! I've scrapped the idea of doing Ike, but the Olimar cosplay is looking better. My sister will be going either as Pit or Marth. You can count on us being there.

The Smash shoot at A-Kon was a huge success - I'm not sure if it was just because of the Guinness World Record thing or because Smash is just really popular this year, but there was quite a big turnout, despite having to change the time at the last minute.

The shots we did (that I remember):
Mushroom Kingdom
Everyone else
Bad Guys
Plumbers and Alter-egos
Twins (multiple cosplayers for the same character)
"Taste the Rainbow" - all characters grouped with other same-color characters.

Then we did a bunch of 'battle' poses. A group of people would run out into the center, pose for a while, then another group would run out. I'm waiting for our photographer to post pictures, but it turned out reallly well from what I could see there.

Of course, depending on the crowd you have, you can add or delete groups.

06-10-2008, 01:16 PM
Kay guys, here's some official updates about the scheduling.

The Nintendo Photoshoot is DEFINITELY going to be sometime saturday. If you've got suggestions for times and places, I'd absolutely *love* to hear them. My brother (who's become my unofficial co-host) and I have been debating about good times and places, and because I've pretty much got first pick of places and times, we're COMPLETELY unsure of where to go from here.

Your help is much appreciated. :] this is as much your photoshoot as it is mine.

Also, thanks to TR Rose for giving me a beautiful list of suggestions for groups. <3 This is my first time hosting a Photoshoot, so I'm a little unsure of where to go from here.

06-10-2008, 01:46 PM
if i can egt my link done in time i will try to make it ^_^ its sort of a fan fic ish link but the oinly libertys i take is he willw ere a clock

06-10-2008, 03:41 PM

However, the place is subject to change depending on the turnout we get. Please be flexible. ;o;

Is the Rotunda area that huuuuuge empty space on the 1st floor (The floor with the fountain and cafe)

06-11-2008, 11:16 AM
Yeah, it is. It's the place where they used to hold autograph sessions, but last year I think it was just booths set up by artists.

If I'm not mistaken, there's a balcony right outside said rotunda area. That's the scheduled place for our photoshoot.

Got Glomp?
06-11-2008, 12:14 PM
Hey I'll be down for the photo shoot. I'm a giant pink kirby ^____^. I might need some explanation where that exactly it is, but I'm down.

06-12-2008, 10:20 AM
Ohman made of win! <3 My mom was thinking of going as kirby, but it'd be like... pink shirt/pants and red shoes kinda thing. XD

Well, when you first walk into the Hotel, there's a giant fountain right by the entrance with an escalator going over it kind of. Walk PAST that, and if it's anything like last year, there's probably going to be artist booths set up along the walls.

If you keep walking, you'll get to the end of the first floor to a series of large glass windows and doors and to your RIGHT there's going to be a large Rotunda area, and outside of said rotunda area there's a balcony.

That's where we'll be, but we might move depending on the size of the gathering. I hope it's a sufficient amount of space. :3

Got Glomp?
06-12-2008, 02:37 PM
Yeah my fat arse of a kirby might take up some space ^__________^

06-12-2008, 11:10 PM

): I just hope I can find my camera before then, or buy a new one. v__v

06-13-2008, 04:16 PM
If I'm able to make it, I'll definitely be there! my friend and I as Lucas and Claus.

I'm considering putting together a Masked Man costume for aFEST...we'll see!

06-13-2008, 11:00 PM
Hope to see you there~!

PS: heroesss. D: I want a Claus so badly it hurts. and the moar Lucas, the merrier.

If this is Saturday, count me in. I'm doing Phoenix Wright stuffles for Sunday, but my Saturday looks empty. :)

06-14-2008, 02:21 PM
Yup, Saturday at one! XD

I've got a QUESTION. Q-U-E-S-T-I-O-N for you all.

How would everyone feel about a Nintendo Party saturday night, after the cosplay? Like, bring some party games and music and just hang and talk nintendo?

I could probably even manage to smuggle the TV in my game room to hook up a Wii or Gamecube or N64. Everyone can bring a DS (provided you have one) and we can trade pokemon and DS download play and stuff.

Hey, maybe even a brawl tournament! :3 My brother and I just started tossing this idea around, so I would absolutely LOVE some feedback.

Got Glomp?
06-14-2008, 05:04 PM
Sounds fun! I just can't promise I could necessarily be there because I'm rooming with a group of friends... But I think the Smash Brawl Tourney would be amazing :D! I'm not that good at it but it would sure as hell be fun!

06-15-2008, 06:14 PM
Ohman. I was at Main Event with my friend last night, and we saw Nintendo Monopoly. It's a sign from the Con gods-- Nintendo Party's required. 8D

06-18-2008, 03:32 AM
I'll try and bring my Mario for this! My brother, Oogie Boogie on the forums, goes as a gnarly Shyguy, so I'll get him to come as well.

06-19-2008, 11:34 AM
Alrighty! :3 Seeya there~!

06-19-2008, 04:53 PM
I MIGHT be coming as Pit, it really depends if I can get the costume together in time. I hopefully I can. TwT

Expect Princess Peach!


06-20-2008, 01:16 AM
I will be bringing a "secret" princes cosplay!
Sat will be best! I have the Shinigami March on sunday morning and possibly Phoenix Wright latter that day...

06-25-2008, 10:53 AM
Saturday's totally going to be fun. <3

UPDATES on the Nintendo Party~! I'm not sure whether or not the Masquerade (walk-ons only) is going to be on Saturday night, but if it isn't, that means that the Cosplay is, and chances are that will run later.

But as of right now, the tentative time for the Nintendo Party is 9:00 PM saturday night. I haven't alerted thefinal yet, so if this is problematic PLEASE don't hesitate to tell me. I'm always able to reschedule. :'D This would hopefully be after the Masquerade and it'd go on until everyone had to leave/got tired. :'3 or they told us to shut up and disband.

I'm thinking on what I'm going to bring. I realize it'd be extremely tedious to lug a TV around (plus with my mother's hernia she can't lift heavy things to help me out), but if I can get assurances that there will be game systems present, I'll risk it. :3 I myself have a Wii and an N64, but my SNES no longer works. :/

I encourage you to bring your nintendo game systems of all kinds! FC Twin, NES, SNES, you name it. Bring your gameboys, gameboy colors, gameboy advances, DS's.

Oh! And your pokemans. trading will more than likely go on. XD

06-25-2008, 04:15 PM
Alright, I got it x3 Expect me there as Midna on Saturday!

06-29-2008, 02:10 PM
thinkin' that bringing a TV would be kinda dumb. where would we plug it in?

so yeah, bring your handhelds and stuff. we'll just play that way. I'll have an iPod + iHome for music and line dances, so bring your dancing shoes. XD

9 PM saturday, BE THERE in the lobby. ;3

07-01-2008, 01:08 PM
Party sounds amazing...i'll totally be there!

07-05-2008, 08:48 PM
I've officially secured a copy of Nintendo Monopoly!

If there are any other suggestions, or if you'd like to bring something, do so. I'm trying to find nintendo playing cards, but I haven't been able to find any. :/ But I suppose a normal deck of cards works well too. XD

Umm... other board games? perhaps charades? I dunno. XD

Phantom Pirate
07-21-2008, 05:01 PM
I've got a totally rad Pikachu!Edition N64 I can bring if anyone'd like...all my games are at my mom's house, so you'll have to supply that...(as well as all my controllers but one)

07-28-2008, 01:05 AM
I'm going to try try try to be at the shoot, and maybe the party. I'll be dressed as Giovanni, from Pokemon, if I can make it.

08-02-2008, 02:30 AM
If I can come, I'll be bringing Little Mac from the Punch-Out series.

08-04-2008, 06:24 PM
In case the Brawl shoot doesn't happen, I'll likely end up here with Jigglypuff~ <3 Sounds like it's gonna be fun!

I have a secret nintendo cosplay I'm making and I would love to attend. I have another engagement going on at the time but you never know I might just make it! Epic costumes = making room to be epic.

08-20-2008, 10:24 AM
Well I was thinking of having a Wii on hand for awesome Mario Kart and Brawl action, but toting around a television seems stupid. But my brother's offered to help me lug this thing around if people honestly ARE interested in bringing game systems.

I've got some SNES games lying around but the game system itself is broken. D: So if you've got one, I've got Tetris Attack and Super Mario All-Stars, I do believe. And on the N64, I can find Mario Parties 2 and 3, and I've got two controllers. Gamecube, I've got like nothing. Not even my copy of Melee, I can't find it. >w< On the wii, I've got Mario Kart and Brawl. But I've got plenty of gamecube controllers and two wiimotes with nunchuks. Oh! and a wii wheel.

And I've got a copy of Nintendo Monopoly reserved at Lone Star, so if you're interested in that, I can provide. I was figuring on everyone bringing their DS's and DS download play going on or something.

I've got Cooking Mama 2, that's about the extent of my download play. Meteos is around here somewhere but the chances of finding it within the next century are slim to none. D;

REGARDLESS I'm so happy you're all going to be at the shoot. And maybe the party, if it doesn't end up failing. XD

K...So I'm going to come to the shoot.
I'm going to be Midna!

TR Rose
08-20-2008, 06:52 PM
Sadly I won't be able to make the shoot. A bunch of commitments all back-to-back from about 1 to 4.

08-21-2008, 05:40 PM
Awww. ): That makes me sad. But I hope you have fun. <3

awwwright Midna! :'3 this is going to be funnn.

08-24-2008, 02:39 AM
I'll try my best to make it, I'm cosplaying Ike and my sister is Marth. :D

09-01-2008, 08:16 PM

The turnout left a little to be desired, but it was fun. ;o; at least I hope it was.

It was basically like one big LARP. XD Especially since Team Rocket was there and Naruto showed up for a fight.

ALSO thanks to Sonic who was SO agreeable and just showed up because I saw him on the elevator and asked him to. <3 you're too good, man, too good to be seen with a loser/jerk like me.

I'm so sorry if you felt that it was a let-down. I honestly don't want to say that it was, because people actually showed up, period. It was probably lack of planning on my part. This was my first time hosting anything and really it was harder than it looked. I'll plan better in the future because those of you who showed deserve so much better than some n00b with a costume and a love for nintendo. <3

IKE AND MARTH you guys were such good sports. You just showed up with a smile and went with the flow. I'm only sorry the turnout wasn't better for you guys. You deserve like an A-Kon turnout. I'm also sorry that the party didn't work out.

PHOENIX AND EDGEWORTH who were basically the "party," I feel like you guys were good sports and even hung out with us despite the fact that Alex and I were like the only people there and all we did was make jokes about nothing. It's people like you that keep me coming back to this con.

TEAM ROCKET you guys were like amazing. you made it FUN, omg. I doubt we would've had half as much fun if you hadn't been there to antangonize us to have you BLASTING OFF AGAAAAAIN! You're welcome ANY TIME at ANY nintendo event. <3

Misty, Brock, and their Bellossom, you were the most amazing trio ever. <33 I doubt I can ever stress it enough. I doubt I've ever seen such nice people walking around willing to have some fun with Team Rocket for our benefit. <3

Lucas and Claus, I feel like we hardly left you room to participate, and for that I'm sorry. I feel like it's my fault that you probably didn't get the turnout you expected and you sort of backed off because of it. I'm so sorry. Like, so sorry. ): Thanks for showing up anyway even if it was a dissapointment. <3 you were awesome.

Neku and Link? LOLWUT. we lol'd about it later in the room. wheeee~.

THANKS TO EVERYONE who showed up for pictures. You guys were awesome. :'D

09-07-2008, 09:41 PM
Hey, don't put it down so much, I had a great time! :D We weren't let down at all. You did a good job, especially for a first time hostess. If we can make it next year, count us in. Since this was a photoshoot, after all, I'll post some pics that my dad was so gracious as to take.
