I know I'll be wearing Elysia at-con, but I'm not sure if I'll make the gathering or not. She should be all spiffy-ed up though (new jacket, seamed bottom, etc).

HappyHeretic
10-10-2007, 11:53 AM
I know that things in the investigations department have been a bit hectic lately so I think i may have to bring my personal assistant Sheska to the con with. She will get lots of overtime pay for this... aka pictures of Elysia.

But well seriously my girlfriend is wanting to pull together a Sheska for ALA, and I am also trying to convince a friend of mine to bring her 2 year old to the con to do Gracia and Elysia. I am also considering putting togeter a Homoculus version of Hughes

This is going to be awesome. And, Tammertime, you definitely need an FMA gathering. Maybe... a... southern California WINTER gathering...? Because I can't imagine Armstrong prancing around in the spring with that coat of hers. <3

Meanwhile Friday is also a busy day for people also on the list. I was leaning toward Saturday at noon or after, and if not Saturday then maybe sometime on Sunday.

Sonsko-chan
11-20-2007, 08:12 AM
What about Friday before Cosplay Chess?

call_me_canada
11-20-2007, 11:11 AM
Friday would work better for me only because Saturday has the Naruto gathering at 1 PM and Kingdom Hearts gathering at 4 pm. Whatever happens happen though lol. So I opt for Friday but whatever works best for everyone else.

HappyHeretic
11-20-2007, 11:18 AM
Well I know that myself and a few other FMA cosplayers will be in Cosplay Chess as Hellsing characters and are planning the Hellsing gathering for after cosplay chess, so trying to to do the FMA gathering before cosplay chess will make things rather difficult to do the FMA gathering boefore cosplay chess and then have to change play chess and then do another gathering.

So I would much rather see a Saturday or Sunday gathering for FMA. I think Saturday would be the best day anyway, because some people who may have to work or go to school on Fridays couldn't make it out to a friday gathering unless it were later in the day (thus why cosplay chess and our hellsing gathering are being planned for evening time) and on Sunday a lot of people are busy checking out of their hotels and probably leaving early.

I recomend that we do Saturday in the late afternoon, maybe around 3:00, take photos for a while, and then for anyone interested we can go out to dinner somewhere. This is sort of a tradition for my crew. And I know that we have been aching to do a military trip to Hooters. Just imagine Roy hitting on the waitresses, Riza getting mad at him, Hughes telling the women "Sorry ladies, I'm a married man, I really am just here for the hot wings" or "Damnit Roy! You told me this was a child friendly restaurant with a cartoon owl," Ed shielding Al's eyes from the nearly naked girls while Roy shields Eds eys from them as well. I don't know if there is a Hooters near the convention center, but it would be a lot of fun.

But well that's my idea. Do people like the sound of that?

FullMetal Ninja
11-20-2007, 01:24 PM
Well I'm going to be in the Cosplay Chess as well, Also the Naruto gathering so I'm not sure if Friday would be good. I think Saturday or Sunday as well.

Sonsko-chan
11-25-2007, 09:26 PM
Some of the larger gatherings (ie; Naruto, KH, and Bleach) are Saturday and Sunday. As for school onFridays, I personally am still on my winter break, so it would work for the mornings. Then again, I'm still tentative on the gathering, so disregard me. :]

FullMetal Ninja
11-25-2007, 10:30 PM
Never mind Friday is good...but I'm in the cosplay chess and I have tobe there at 3:15 so anytime before then is good for me...

11-25-2007, 10:38 PM
I will most liekly either go as Riza Hawkeye or Wrath! :D

DorianHolmes
11-26-2007, 12:56 AM
I say Saturday, because of cosplay Chess and more people will be around on Saturday, plus I know that at least 5 of the people who would be comming to the FMA gathering would be absent if it was around cosplay Chess. Plus I am all for the Hooters idea

ITouchedYusuke
11-26-2007, 01:21 AM

So its looking like Saturday has the most favor. What about the time and location? Lets try to make this work with the other gatherings in mind.

11-26-2007, 01:45 PM
Any time before 1 is good for me because I'm in the Naruto gathering at 1 on Saturday.

Sonsko-chan
11-26-2007, 09:13 PM
Saturday morning sounds better, because the larger gatherings are that afternoon, then it's Masquerade in the evening (and I think I'm being roped into one of four skits).

11-26-2007, 10:21 PM
Does Saturday at 10 sound too early? Or maybe 11 *ponders* Or perhaps friday at a later time. *ponders more*

Sonsko-chan
11-27-2007, 07:43 PM
That sounds good. Either one works for me. For those who wanted to do a Full Metal Meal, 11 would be better, because the gathering takes about an hour(ish) and that would set you right at noon.

Tearatone
11-27-2007, 10:13 PM

So far the Academy Squad has been the most popular location. It is outside and provides the largest amount of space (or so I've been told). I have never been either so haha yes. There is also a photo room this year.

This year we're trying something new, an indoor Photo Gathering Room.
Photo Gathering Room

Tired of gathering outside in the cold and sometimes rainy January weather? We don't have any beautiful landscaping at our new Burbank location, so we've decided to set up a photo room indoors.

Lisa "Kokuu" Gochnauer will be overseeing the room. We expect to have backdrops and lighting, and the room will be available all day and into the evening. It'll be next door to the Costume Repair Station, so you can make sure everything looks right before your photos.

There will be scheduled gathering times, to be posted; interested parties can also make an appointment to use the room. And the room will be available for ad hoc photo opportunities as well.

Badges will be checked at the doors to the Convention Center, so you won't have to worry about having your character wearing a badge for photos indoors.

The room might be closed during hours before and during the Masquerade.

So yes. . . . just a thought. Though outdoors seems like it would be better.

Just so Everyone Knows....Neo_Serenity is the head of the gatherings for the program printing and this is what she said.

Neo_Serenity: "Hi everyone - we had another ALA meeting yesterday and I was notified that all gatherings must be in by Friday, Dec. 14, to be included in our pocket program guidebook, and to be placed on signs for the convention itself.

To be included, all gatherings must have time AND place, so if your gathering does not have one currently, please make sure it is submitted by the 14th, or it will not be included.

I have added this information to the first post:

*NOTE* Submissions due by Friday, December 14. This is so they can be put in our pocket program book, and signage printed for the convention. Only gatherings that have a time AND place will be included, so make sure your gathering has both. This is the final deadline, and anything submitted Saturday, December 15 and on will not be on the signs at the convention, or in the pocket program guide. So get those gatherings decided and in! "

Hey guys, I was one of the Tsunade's hanging around snapping photos. I got a bunch from the gathering and I'll be uploading them to my ALA Saturday. Including the fabulous smooch between Ed and Winry. ;D

*blush* I'd be that Winry ^_^;;
