Me and the wife finally registred for Yaoi-Con '08! :bouncer:

Cosplay-wise we are planning on bringing our trusty Aya and Schuldig from Weiss Kreuz, and also our Hellsing costumes. (Rann wants to go as Integra as she is a dead ringer for her, but since it's Yaoi-Con, I think I might just get my butt in gear and make her a Walter, as well, as a surprise... *g*)

What will you guys be doing?

I've been planning what I intend to do for Auction this year, so far, but have not quite extended to the other nights of the convention. We'll see. :]

whoa pre-reg has opened up? i gotta jump on that.
anyways, as far as cosplay goes, I'm planning on bringing Bankai!Renji (Bleach), Tres Iqus (Trinity Blood), and maybe either Matt (Death Note) or Ulquiorra (Bleach), depends on which one i want to bring more.

You guys have seen that Youka Nitta will be there, right? *silyl little fangirl squee*

Hikaru-Jan, any chance of you bringing Seras for Yaoicon? (I know she's a girl, but hey... *g*) If nothing goes wrong, we'll be doing Hellsing as well. :love:

Me and my older sister want to head up there to Yaoi-con together this year from Texas, but this is a major maybe for us. (Considering we'll be attending another con in the same month.)

If we do manage to make it, this'll probably be what cosplays I can bring with me.

Well, my hotel room is booked, my pre-reg is in the mail, and I'm on cheap flight alert...looks like I'm going! This will be my first one since 2004.

I have a REALLY full costume schedule, since I haven't had a chance to cosplay in a year or two. So far, I've got...

Friday:
Yasuaki (Haruka)
Fai (Tsubasa- NO idea which version yet)
Cyon (Wild Fangs)

Saturday:
Lui (Meine Liebe)
Raphael (Angel Sanctuary)
Aya or Chloe (Weiß Side B)

Sunday:
Maki (Cafe Kichijoji De)

My back-ups (old costumes I'm taking just in case): Tomonori (Juvie Orion), Rufus (Advent Children), Teru (Death Note), and Soubi (Loveless- duh).

I'm so glad to see that there will be Weiß fans there-I'm hanging on to that fandom, tooth and nail.

Hehe, so am I. Schu was my first anime love, there's no way I'll give him up! I'll definítely bring him, I'm just not sure if it'll be anime version or artbook version yet. If I can convince the wife to go sleeveless, she'll bring Ran as well - she suspects that both the assassin outfit and the flowershop one will be a tad too warm. *g*

Weiss cosplayers~! Sweet, I'll have to bring Omi along for sure. But other then Omi, I only have planned is Camus from Meine Liebe thus far. But that's also if I get to go this year. I'm sure I'll have more cosplays planned as the con gets closer.

Schuldig_
03-05-2008, 09:49 AM
Yay, more Weiss cosplayers!! :bouncer: We should try to get some pictures taken together... I've never met anyone else who does Weiss (the anime's not that well-known here; anime sort of first came to Sweden with the DB, One Piece and Naturo-wave, so hardly anyone knows of the older stuff... *sad sigh*).

Fluffymaru, thank you for dismissing the prejudice that is would be warm... I don't know the States climate-wise since I've never been anywhere but NYC. *g* Everyone keeps claiming it will be warm.

And yeah, perhaps we really should do a panel. Not that I think Weiss needs to be more known in the States, but heck, a panel on Weiss would be a hoot. I've never even heard of one. *g*

And dear me, we have a stalker? In that case, I should get my butt in gear and get the artbook version done - I need to look my best for the stalker! ;)

Really? Well, I'm not native to that area (I live in Florida), so maybe you should ask some locals. In 2004, though, it was plenty cool (although perhaps not by Sweden standards- to me, 60F is cool and 40F is freezing). Of course, Y-Con 2004 was also Halloween weekend (Oct.31st), so I don't know how much of a difference San Fran has in a month...

And yeah, perhaps we really should do a panel. Not that I think Weiss needs to be more known in the States, but heck, a panel on Weiss would be a hoot. I've never even heard of one. *g*

Well, a bunch of us did one in 2004, but it was only given to our ringleader 3 days before the con, and she hadn't really planned it out (since she thought she didn't get the time slot), so it was kind of crappy. I've run a crapload of panels, so I'm always willing to do something, as long as it doesn't conflict an event I want to attend.

Panels are awlays better with a group of about 4 people heading them up- if the audience gets quiet, you can always bounce stories and info off each other in that case.

*snickers* Tath quote is sooo true... the number of people i have stalked and addpoted at Y-con :3

Weather Alert!!!! *is a native to the bay*

San Fran tends to have its Summer in September-October. So it will be pretty warm. also you need to look at San Mateo weather, it is more inland then SF so will be warmer. it was really HOT last year. but nights can get chilly when the fog comes in.

but yeah, expect it to be pretty hot. sun will be shining. though there might be a breeze out 98% of the con is indoors anyway

Hum, don't give me any ideas. Four people? Anyone ever noticed that Weiss (and Schwarz!) consists of four people... people? *g*

Ok ok, cosplay list changes for me. Why? Because I do that at least four times before I attend the con. Though probably half of these cosplays won't happen. (Bad habit of mine.)

~Xemnas Final Form (KH2)
~Xehanort (KH2)---If I feel like it.
~Kimimaro (Naruto)
~Stan, the Shadow King (Okage)---If I can get my older sis to be Epros.
~Sasori (Naruto)---If my older sis still needs a Sasori for her Deidara cosplay. (This is a major if.)
~Random Bleach Person---If my sis agrees to the Okage cosplay then I have to do a Bleach cosplay with her. (Though I really do dislike Bleach.)
~Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)---If my sis wants us to do our Luffy and Sanji duet thingy.

We're also considering doing Weiss Kreuz; considering my sister keeps remaking her Omi cosplay and never gets a chance to wear it at cons that pass us by. As for me, I don't know who the hell I could possibly cosplay from Weiss Kreuz.

B'rose Foxxstar
03-09-2008, 05:27 AM

Ah, I had to narrow down my cosplay list. Mainly because my older sister (who's one of my trio cosplay partners) if going off to a University this fall, so she won't be working and can't pay to come to Cali. So, it'll most likely be me by my lonesome.

~Xemnas Final Form (KH2)
~Xehanort (KH2)---If I feel like it.
~Kimimaro (Naruto)
~Endrance (.hack//G.U.)---If I finish it on time.

Yeah it's totally narrowed down from my last list, which I guess it's good because I didn't want to be swamped with that much cosplays anyways. Sorry, but no Weiss again for me this year. (Second year we had to put a stop to a Weiss cosplay duet we were planning.)

Considering this is more of a fandom thing and the series is known as either version just as much as the other there isn't much of a point to changing the spelling for something that, last my understanding of German (near fluent- my accent is too PA Dutch to consider myself fluent) says, is a mild curse. Really it is a matter of splitting hairs, though I'm not at all surprised you are.

May cosplay as Genesis from Crisis Core, however. <3

-Either Zack Fair FFVII or Kurogane from Tsubasa (My friend wants me to do either one of those since she's doing Cloud and Fai)

Sorry about that one Michi, just wanted to point out that its not really as much a pie in the face than it was made out to be. Especially considering at Castle Point Anime Con I saw a couple series where in the jap title Weiss is spelled in that manner.

Ok so to actually add to the topic, my big costume this year is going to be Dark Armored Riku from Kingdom Hearts. Right now I'm probably working myself into a boil over how I'm going to do and just want to get started. But yea not a ton of money and lots of crap to do means I need to be careful in planning it.

Oh my goodness rose, you have totally picked the right convention for your first american one! All my friends here in Toronto told me I was crazy to go all the way to SanFran for an anime convention...that was untill they saw the pictures and heard about all the fun yaoi-fied mischief we got into while down there!

I cant wait for the convention this year, Im soooooooo excited, and omg so many weiss cosplayers! I may be cosplaying Aya, but ever single last one of you are going to get glomped!

Yaaay Weiss cosplayers! I won't be cosplaying Weiss, but I've never seen them done in person before (possibly also because this year will be my very first Y-con), so I'm excited to see you guys.

My group's plan isn't completely set yet, but we may be planning to do:
- Young!Walter, Girlycard(Alucard) and Integra (Hellsing)
- Kurogane and Fai (Tsubasa Chronicle)
- Muraki, Tsuzuki and Hisoka (YamiEi)

It's just his wig and makeup. I've still gotta do the blazer, eyepatch, collar and a few other bits. ~.~ The earrings hurt my poor ears, cuz they're not really earings, but some loops of wire that I just slide on 'em. Better than nothin!

04-27-2008, 01:00 PM
Ouch! Can you really do that to ears? They look great, though, but if they're painful... Can't you get some clip-ons (I assume you don't have ear piercings since you slide them on) instead? It'll probably look as good but be less painful. I cringe at the thought of having painful ears all day. :lost:

You look great so far, though! I can't wait to see the rest, and I'm generally excited to see a Farf cosplayer as you don't see him done that often.

Speaking of, does anyone know anything about photo shoots or the like, or is it too early yet?

The title is "Weiß Kreuz- Fandom, Canon, and
Trends". We'll discuss cliches in the fandom, play some games, give away some stuff...a good mix of serious fandom business and silly! We've already got some BNFs sitting on it, so it's sure to be interesting...

If it looks like we'll all be wearing our costumes on Friday, I'll go ahead and request that the panel be on that day, and maybe we'll get lucky.

Also, if anyone has topics they'd like to see discussed, drop them in here or e-mail me at fluffymaru@bellsouth.net. Please try and keep it to the general fandom, though (fic cliches, pairings, canon event, etc.)- we're going to avoid the voice actors and things like cosplay, just so we can stay on target. :)

The reasoning behind this is because we were sitting in the expedition hall at Anime Expo on Saturday thinking of Yaoi crack pairings. My friend overheard and told us that the Ranma x Kuno would be funny, so we decided to run with it. As for Hanatarou x Ganju... I've always wanted to cosplay Hana-chan, so we tried to think of someone suitable yet random for him. ^^

And Yay! I finally got some good pictures of my completed Farfie Costume. Sorry for the boobage, it's extremely difficult to hide well...T^T

Who says one can't be badass Schwarz and be short? *looks at self* ;) I'm so looking forwards to seeing this live!

Any specific time we want for the gathering? Or should we just make them pick one over at the forum? So far, they've been pretty considerate in trying to make sure people don't miss anything of interest during the gathering.

I doubt they do; I've at least never been in a suite with one! But that's just me, and I've quite frankly only stayed at a US hotel once before, so I can't say for sure. Why not call/mail them and ask (and would you mind telling me if you find out? Would be a good way to get into character before going to the con...)? :)

Since not many of the people cosplaying Weiss seem to hang out in the gathering thread, I thought I'd post a little notification here... I might not be able to do the version of Schuldig I want to (artbook version). Some RL stuff has come up that has prevented me from sewing, and since we're leaving for the US two weeks early to hang with friends and family, that means I have tomorrow to fix all remaining details, and I'm nowhere near done.

If you guys spot a green Schu (anime version), please do come up and say hi anyway; my badge name will be the same as my name here.

Sorry I went missing, guys! RL kicked my ass but good (not bad, just busy). I am, however, mostly clear and free for Yaoi-Con, so it gets my full attention.

Couple of things...

-I see the Weiss photo shoot will be Friday at 3 PM, pool side. That timing is, as far as I know, perfect. So I approve :)

-I'm pretty sure that I'll be Chloe for most of the Weiss stuff, since we have a lot of Rans and I have most of Chloe's stuff anyway.

-I have no idea what time the Weiss panel is, but I hear it won't be on Friday. Regardless, make sure you come, since we're doing some kick-ass stuff (and giving away some kick-ass stuff, too).

-For Weiss specific updates, check
http://community.livejournal.com/_ansatsusha_/
I'm going to try and keep track of all of it there, so we'll have one place to get the info from. If you have a Weiss specific event you'd like to add, just drop me a line.

-I am excited! :)

This is my first year attending but I don't crossplay so I will be taking only women costumes.

Friday: Shizuka from Vampire Knight
Saturday: Sakura Infinity Arc from Tsubasa Chronicles
Sunday: Tomoyo Piffle country from Tsubasa Chronicles

Hopefully it will be a fun convention!! ^_^

Eboni Ninja - Yay so I will see you again! <3

Mlarad - And yay, you'll be Sakura on Saturday! We have a rather complete Tokyo Revelations group of people on Saturday except we're missing a Sakura and a Syaoran. XD

I think I posted here before, although I've updated my costume list, and it'll be:
Friday: Fai Infinity Arc or Horitsuba Gakuen, TRC. Or both.
Saturday: Kamui Tokyo Revelations, TRC.
Sunday: Fai default, TRC.

I'm definitely bringing The Count of Monte Cristo, as per tradition.

I wanted to do a Zero costume from Code Geass, but there's no time.

So I'm going to try to put together a Macross Frontier costume. Either Alto or Michel, since all I have to do is change the tie and pull my hair back.

If my Zeon costume gets finished to satisfaction, I'll wear that time permitting.

Fluffymaru
09-14-2008, 10:21 PM
Either Alto *or* Michel will get you drooled on...heh.

Schu- who decided on the 3 PM time for the Weiss shoot? It was originally a great time... then they announced that the swap meet was starting at 3. -_- I, personally, would like to consider changing it. Maybe to 5/6 or 2...?

What about the rest of you Weiss cosplayers? Had you also considered attending or setting up at the swap meet?

Ashadeus
09-17-2008, 12:03 AM
I'm not opposed to setting the Weiss shoot for a later time-- I'll be taking public transit to the con, if I can get work off for it (or feign sickness), so I'd personally prefer not having to worry about being late/hurrying to make myself look pretty after a train ride for pictures.

But I'm a vain thing. *shrug* Not sure what the schedule's like for the con events, dunno if later is worse for some people.

Fluffymaru
09-17-2008, 12:16 AM
Okay, how about this? After the schedule is posted online (the directors say it *will* go up before the con) and we can see when Opening Ceremonies are, I'll set a second time for Weiss.

If we all decide to cancel the 3 PM time, great, the second time will be our only time. If everyone still wants 3 PM, then it will be a second chance for those of us in the swap meet to have a photo meet-up. And, of course, nothing saying folks can't attend both...

Sound good, everyone?

I called the Marriott. There are no DVD players; however, there are ports in the TV to hookup a DVD player. I'm thinking about having a marathon in my room after the bishi auction. I have a Comic Party box set unopened I got from a grab bag last year. Or maybe Family Guy? If anyone's interested in joining me, PM me. The event is non alcoholic BTW ^__^

@wpuzzle and mlarad, you're tempting me to bring my Syaoran cosplay >.<

Oh, wait...I thought the Bishie Auction was on Friday night. Am I wrong about that? That's where I'm getting confused. I might be wrong, since 2004 is the only year I've been before...

If Costume, Auction, and Dance are all on Saturday night, then what's on Friday after Opening Ceremonies?

It wasn't like it was really off topic, anyway. We kind of need to know when the functions are so we can plan when to meet and what to wear on what day and time. It's not like it was planned or was going to continue or was even a long and massive change in discussion...

Schu- who decided on the 3 PM time for the Weiss shoot? It was originally a great time... then they announced that the swap meet was starting at 3. -_- I, personally, would like to consider changing it. Maybe to 5/6 or 2...?

It was Duo Monkey who suggested it, actually, and since I didn't think I personally had anything else to do at that time, I just went along. But, like I said, I'm flexible, so if you guys want to change, I'm fine with it. I'll be in San Fran on Tuesday, so I don't mind an earlier appointment - or a later one. You guys who are coming form work/have other things to do should decide. I just don't want to miss out on anything big, but I guess that goes for all of us. :)

Might I sheepishly ask what the swap meet is? Am I missing something?

And speaking of other things alltogether, white Schu just might make it after all! He'll probably need to borrow Alucard's shirt and green Schu's pants, but I got luckier than I thought and found cheap fabric at JoAnn's (although slightly icky), as well as a sewing machine at the place we were staying... so hastily thrown together and probably with an awkward fit, but he'll make it! :bouncer:

Now that I've got my schedule for the week from work, I'm highly attracted to the idea of moving the Weiss gathering on Friday to a slightly later time-- say, 5 or 6? That might clash with some of the programming/plans of fellow cosplayers, but there's my two cents on the matter. I'll be taking the train down from Auburn around 1 that afternoon, so...yes. This Aya will be fresh off the street by the time the shoot rolls around.

Yay for more Trinity Blood cosplays! It looks like there will be a last minute change of plans for me, since although I ordered it weeks ago and specified that I needed it by Wednesday, I just got the shipping confirmation e-mail for my wig, and it's not going to be here [in Seattle] until Friday, by which point I'll be at the con and there's no way that my family could get it to me in time for me to wear it the next morning. So for Yaoi-Con, it looks like I'll be RCO!Ion instead. Which totally isn't canon. But it would still be cool.
I intend to wear it on Saturday and drop by the Trinity Blood photoshoot. :]
