So I've seen some people saying they're wearing Avatar costumes to SakuraCon and was wondering if we could get a meetup/photoshoot together. I've never planned one before but would love to run it if we can pick a day and time. If people are interested I'll bring lots of goodies. And I'll even throw in a batch of my famous fireflakes. :)

I'm dressing up as Fire nation Toph and my brother is going to be "Western air temple" Zuko.

HAY. I have a big group of Avatar cosplayers coming with me. We'll probably have the following:

Katara(me)
Toph
Zuko
Sokka
Ty Lee
Maybe Mai
Maybe Aang
Azula

xD Is your brother a Zutara shipper? LOL. The guy I'm bringing as Zuko is gonna DIE from all my ZUTARA LURVE. Or possibly push me away.

We'll be in Avatar costume on Friday and Saturday. Can we try and work out a time when the schedule comes out?

I'm with Sapphirerose125 :) I'm going as Fire Nation Toph too!! Haha, we can share the pain of all the weird aspects of Toph's outfit =P I would love to meet up with you!!

Sapphirerose125: Wow, what a group! Haha, no. He's not Zutarian.

Yeah, I agree that we can't really pick an exact time until the schedule comes out. Hopefully it'll be some time on Sat, though. The meetup is going to be fun! I'm making a trivia game with prizes. ^_^

Lol, I was only (kinda) kidding. Make sure he braces himself. xD I'm pretty nice, I think, so I won't force him. (But he'll be converted by the end of the con.) I'll be forcing the Zuko I'm bringing. Hehe.

Ooooh! Fun! I'm excited! Saturday will probably work for us. Where should we meet? In the courtyard by the magnolia trees or something?

I've never been there, but if it's not too crowded it sounds like a good place.

Well, it's not horrible. It depends on when you go. During the Bleach and Naruto photoshoots it's a terrible idea, but you know...Haha, last year people were taking some romantic photos for Bleach and there was someone up in the tree shaking the petals off to make the photo better. xD

Ohhh trivia sounds fun!! ^__^ I think that would be a good area, but we need to sort of stake it out beforehand just in case probably. Maybe someone can bring some kind of picnic blanket and we could set up on the grass. That would be so cool! I really wish they would hurry up and post a schedule so that we could figure out what time and such :C

That doesn't mean there is gonna be a Bleach or Naruto photoshoot this year o_O; I'm not sure if that was even official. Either way, if we really want to use that space up on the ledge all we have to do is...go there. And if another group comes that had prior plans to use it, we can move.

UGH, ME TOO.

A stake out would be fun. We could do a potluck type thing, haha. Fireflakes, onion and banana juice, etc.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure there is an official photoshoot. Those were official...I'm almost positive they were on the schedule. Yeah...there are plenty of usable areas near there.

D'you really wanna bring that stuff from your house and carry around some kind of weird thermos of onion and banana juice? Sounds a little improbable. But it would be cool if we could have a few Avatar snacks as long as they were easy to transport. We should try to do it as like a brunch type thing maybe if we're not busy at that time.

That's really what I meant...Little things. I was kidding about the onion and banana juice...doesn't really translate over email....>_>;;

I know, but a lot of things are like that where it would be kind of a hassle to carry it around for a while. Even though onion and banana juice would be really cool....:c

Ooh, I should bring cans of Cactus juice too! I love that stuff! :D

I like the idea of a snacky kind of picnic. We can have it before the photoshoot if someone's already there or we could have it afterward. I'm getting so excited about this! ^_^

Awesome!! Do people actually sell stuff like that? o_O;

Yeah, sounds like fun! Running around taking pictures might make us hungry, too :3

Yeah. Like...aloe juice and stuff.

LOL, and it'll be a good substitution for forgetting to eat in the excitement of the day.

Ah I thought it must be something like that. Hmm I'd probably hate it but I'll try it :)

Haha yeah, I don't think I ate anything all weekend last year...just drank a lot of coffee. A loooot of coffee....o_o;

Didn't you try it at A-chan's that one time? I vaguely remember it...>_> Maybe it was just me.
Last year was crazy. All we ate was Subway that one time and we drank coffee the entire time. XD I love living in a coffee-driven city during times like these.

I don't think so. I know I've seen it before though.

Ahh yeah <3 Eating is a huge deal there because you have to like...stop. I was always hungry but never wanted to actually go get food.

Oh...maybe we'll get some this weekend?
Yeah...stopping is dame desu. >_>;; I was starving the entire time. There were like...two times we ate throughout the entire con last year.

I won't have an Avatar cosplay in time for Sakuracon, but I'll want to take pictures at the gathering. It'll be nice to have new people to discuss the show with

That's cool. :D Yay for discussion.


ANYWAY, Kaits---Looks like maybe we won't have the gazillion people we wanted. Our friends are dropping out left and right.

PecanPie and I need better friends. xD

PecanPie and I need better friends. xDOh boy, don't I know that feeling! My group was planning for Avatar cosplays for our local con, but nearly everyone dropped out. Of course, we're all college students so funds and free time are at the mercy of the teacher.

Even if I don't get my cosplay done in time for my local con, I hope to have it in time for Kumoricon

Yeah, we half-forced a few people into it and those are mostly the people that are dropping out...For some of them I don't mind, but others are really important to the group :c They're all totally helpless, too, so they expect me and Sapphirerose to make their costumes for them practically. Which I'm not really okay with anymore.

Yeah, kinda sorta know the feeling. Being high school students who pay for everything, you know. >_> Not nearly as bad as college, though. We're hoping to go to Kumori-con, too. :D

Yeah...I'm somewhat okay with it, but only because we forced them into it. So it's not really their fault.

Turns out that something that I thought was happening the weekend BEFORE Sakuracon is actually the same weekend. So I'm not going. I am so upset right now, you wouldn't believe it. I had this planned out perfectly. I even got out of something else so I could go.

Ok, enough ranting. I have to deal with it. Have fun everyone. Wish I could even step in for a bit but I'll be 3 hours away in Moses Lake. D:

Maybe I should wear my Toph costume anyway. Creep out all my friends at bible quizzing. :P

any word on the day? Friday would be preferable. . .

Hey folks! I didn't cosplay (mainly because I didn't get around to it) - but chances are, if you were at Sakura-Con doing an Avatar cosplay, I got your picture. I'm the crazy chick with the white streak in her hair that was snapping photos like crazy.:) I've created a special Photobucket account for all my pics, here's the URL:

Enjoy! And thanks for putting up with me!
