I had another username on here but because of my insane Matrix obsession I went ahead and registered this one because no one's using it. It's Nikki -- I was dressed as Summoner Yuna and Popstar Yuna this past A-kon and met up with Sarah, Nessa, and some others. ^^; I think you all will remember me. I just wanted to post in here and let you all know that yes I do have a username on here now and I should be posting more frequently. ^_^;

I hope everyone had a safe trip home!

Waaah! I wanted to register as Trinity, since that's who I cosplayed as at A-Kon! :skidude2:

Eh, oh well, no big deal ^_^ I saw you though! Great job on your Yuna costume, it rocked! :3

Were you part of the Matrix group? Or am I thinking about the wrong Trinity? lol

Trinity
06-02-2003, 05:24 PM
Aiee! I remember you! I adored your costume -- hopefully I'm going to make Trinity my next one if I can find the right jacket and things of the sort! You looked fantastic, though! Be in touch, hm? ^.^;;

Trinity
06-02-2003, 05:25 PM
^_^ No, I sure wasn't! Artema was the Trinity at A-kon. ^^; I have plans for a Matrix group for the Revolutions premiere, though. I can't wait!

Trinity
06-02-2003, 05:29 PM
Ooh, I should! That would be great! Is that the one you'll be at?

TR5368
06-02-2003, 05:31 PM
yeap, thats where I go for all the premiers :)

Trinity
06-02-2003, 05:41 PM
Sounds great!! I'll definitely have to come out and be there for it. I'll be coming home from college, but it'll without a doubt be worth it!

TR5368
06-02-2003, 05:44 PM
I can already tell you that you would be the main attraction there ;)

Trinity
06-02-2003, 05:47 PM
Aw! That's so sweet of you to say! I could only hope for something like that .. I'm all self-conscious about my costumes because I never think they'll be decent enough. ^^;

TR5368
06-02-2003, 05:49 PM
I dont even think we had any Matrix cosplayers at the Reloaded premier, so Im sure your costume would be a great surprise to anyone. Ill even save ya a spot in line lol :)

Trinity
06-02-2003, 05:50 PM
That would be great! You should cosplay, too! ^.^;; It'd be such a hit! We could get a massive group together and all come out to cosplay.

TR5368
06-02-2003, 05:53 PM
I just may :)

Trinity
06-02-2003, 05:57 PM
You should! It'd be great! I'll probably put out some kind of ad for Matrix cosplayers in the Houston area that would be interested.

Everyone knows that next week in New Orleans, Matrix Reloaded will be shown on an IMAX screen right??

Artema
06-02-2003, 06:36 PM
Eek, everyone posts quickly! @_@

But yes, I was part of the Matrix group ^^ It was hilarious because we all came separatly and didn't know one another until we met at the con. Then we thought we'd enter the cosplay contest for a lark and the rest is history ^^

TR5368
06-02-2003, 06:38 PM
You guys had some great poses! I love you guys! hehe

Very nice Trinity costume btw. :)

Trinity
06-02-2003, 07:56 PM
That would be so great .. to see Reloaded on the IMAX!! And Artema, I might need your Trinity cosplaying wisdom! I want to look as awesome as you did. ^^;

TR5368
06-02-2003, 08:21 PM
Keep us updated on your progress Trinity :)

Artema

Wisdom? -blushing- I found the jacket at Hot Topic for around $60. At the time I didn't even think of cosplaying Trinity, I just thought it looked really cool and knew that when it came wintertime, the price would be jacked up. As A-Kon drew nearer I wanted to add another costume to my roster and ended up seeing a Reloaded poster, with Moss wearing the jacket.

So finally on Memorial Day weekend I was browsing HT again and they had catsuits on clearance, and I had a pair of knee-high boots at home, along with the sunglasses and my hair was almost the proper length. So I thought, what the hey and got it ^^

I'm definetly going as Trinity for the next A-Kon, and I'm saving up to purchase the proper pair of boots, preferably ones with heels not so high x.x' The balls of my feet felt like they were on fire when it got into the evening hours.

Also I'm going to get back into practicing with my flag, so maybe next year Trinity can kickass with a pole as well. ;3

Trinity
06-02-2003, 08:40 PM
Sounds about right! I'm very good with a baton because of Drum Major things I did before I graduated high school, so I'll be able to pull off the gun-twirling type things and pole stuff. I found some really nice leather gear on a website and Hot Topic sounds like a place to shop .. so here I go!

TR5368
06-02-2003, 08:42 PM
Goto hot topic in the woodlands mall..lol Its the best one ive seen.

Trinity
06-02-2003, 08:43 PM
Sounds good! Did they have the jacket I'll need? x_x

TR5368
06-02-2003, 08:45 PM
Most likely, though I dont shop for em very often ;) :)

Trinity
06-02-2003, 08:48 PM
Yay! It looks like I might be able to pull this off.

TR5368
06-02-2003, 08:51 PM
I just saw your Yuna costume, very nice. You will make a great Trinity :)

Would anyone have any idea on where to buy a inexpensive Leather long jacket that Morpheus would wear? Im thinking about making a Morpheus costume.

TR5368
06-02-2003, 11:08 PM
I used to know a place. Gimme a day or 2 and ill get back to you.

Artema
06-02-2003, 11:12 PM
wai! We need a Morpheus for next year! That would rock! -tackleglomp- ^_^

And yeah, Trinity, my costume was pretty cool, but you totally wipe the floor with me as far as sewing and creativity goes! ^^'' I can design costumes, I just can't make 'em...

And speaking of Yuna, did anyone see Man!Yuna? >)

TR5368
06-02-2003, 11:14 PM
yeah I did..lol I also got a pic of him

RuthlessJS
06-03-2003, 01:20 AM
I will be your Mopheus then next year :)

If I have made the costume which I am pretty sure I will be making acquiring very soon.

Trinity
06-03-2003, 08:15 AM
^.^; Mew! You all are so nice -- that makes me so happy that you think I can pull this off! I'll have to just make it work! I'll probably cut my hair off or something .. I don't know if I'd be able to find a wig that was that short and would look right .. hmm ..

Artema
06-03-2003, 02:01 PM
I'm still growing my hair out from a horrific layered razor cut x_x''' Hopefully come next year I can dye it black and the layers will be evened up enough to get the full Trin effect ^^

Short wigs are really hard to find though... probably why so many people asked if I cut my hair especially for the con. oO'

Heh, though if you go next A-Kon as Trinity too, we could freak people out >3

-tackles Ruthless- Woohoo! Our Morpheus! -uberglomp-

Trinity
06-03-2003, 02:32 PM
YES!! We shall take over the convention and scare everyone greatly! I might just have to cut and layer and dye my hair for it, but I'm not sure. Should I?

Artema
06-03-2003, 02:53 PM
I dunno, it's up to you... a sacrifice in the name of a costume... next year I'm definetly dying my hair, so I hope it grows out quickly because the bottom halve is still suffering a bleach job... I do things to my hair that makes stylists freak out on me ^_^'''

Actually the first time I cut my hair reaaally short was in '01 in the fall. I was in Colorguard and the band performed music from The Mummy, so we had to dress in black and gold vinyl and PVC, and also tucked our hair into black wigs. I got so sick of having to pull my hair up, which was at my collarbones, that I found a photo of a short 'do I liked and found a stylist who did razor cuts. >3

Ultimately cutting your hair is up to you. You also have to figure in how it will effect your other costumes and if you think short hair is even for you at all. ;)

Trinity
06-03-2003, 08:45 PM
^_^; I might have to just search and find one of those rare short dark wigs. Because I'm kind of worried about how I'd look with a style that short. I know my Yuna-style is good..

*wants to be Neo now* ;)

Trinity
06-04-2003, 12:12 AM

Artema
06-04-2003, 12:29 AM
Bahaha, because then he can escort sexy women in pvc! :P

Be an agent next year, or better yet, a twin! >3 I already have a Neo ^_^

TR5368
06-04-2003, 01:41 AM
Neo gets all the ladies..you dont see any agents with em do ya? lol

Trinity
06-04-2003, 08:18 AM
^_^; That sounds about right! He wants to pimp it out, eh? xD I'm looking forward to this because I have the greatest Trinity sunglasses *-*;; I can't wait to show them off! And I think my first paycheck is going towards that jacket .. the vinyl one at Hot Topic'd be okay, eh? The one that .. I think goes for about $64. I think that's somewhat close and it looks spiffy!

Artema
06-04-2003, 02:57 PM
Hee ^^ That's mine all right :3

I also have enough costume parts to do Club!Trinity from the first movie ^^ I just forgot to bring my corset for it...

Trinity
06-04-2003, 03:07 PM
^_^ Then I'm hitting the mall tomorrow hopefully! XD Here goes!

I saw Reloaded at the IMAX in houston on thursday..it was great.

Trinity
06-15-2003, 08:23 AM
*-*; I have to get to that IMAX theater soon. I think it's in the downtown area. Nothing would compare to seeing Reloaded on the big screen!

TR5368
06-15-2003, 08:51 PM

Trinity
