Hey everyone!!

Hope you're all getting ready for AX, with it coming up pretty soon, and good luck finishing up those costumes! I can't wait to see all of them and get pics! :)

Admin and I have talked and discussed about when to have the official cosplay.com photoshoot at AX, and after looking at all the cosplay gatherings (and there are a LOT!!) we decided on a day, time, and place. And it is:

Day: Friday, July 4th
Time: 6:30pm
Place: Outside/ in-front of the Anaheim Convention Center

Since a lot of individual anime/video-game gatherings are happening throughout the day, and the big events like the mini-masquerade and the j-rock masquerade are happening, we wanted to schedule it at a later time, so that those participating and/or watching the events will be able to make it for the cosplay.com gathering so that it doesn't conflict with these groups and events. :)

I've already posted the day/time/place on the AX message board, so please mark this time on your own personal schedule so that you can make it. It's going to be a HUGE gathering, one of the biggest at Anime Expo 2003, so hope to see you there in the gathering and to show your support to the site!

See you all soon! :skidude2:

Okay, I'll be there. I'll be dressed as Chii (in her red and white "maid" outfit). Can't wait~! ^__^

06-16-2003, 09:00 AM
I'll be there. not sure on a costume yet but can;t wait to see you all there ^^

06-16-2003, 11:29 AM
Excellent! Though... isn't the meet the guest reception at that time? Dunno if a lot of us are going to be busy with that. Hopefully not though cuz I really wanna come XD. Hmmm what to wear...

06-16-2003, 11:59 AM
I'll probably be dressed as BT from .hack//SIGN, although I might be wearing my new Tohru dress. See ya then!

06-16-2003, 12:07 PM
If I happen to make it to karaoke contest semifinals, I can't come.

But that's not very likely so I bet I'll be there. :)

06-16-2003, 12:09 PM
Darn! I think I'll be dressed as a man that day. Ah, well.

06-16-2003, 12:36 PM
Hmm if it's that late I may not even still be in a costume...but I will try to be there! (if i am not at dinner) Actually, er, I think I am kind of obligated to be there ^^;;;

06-16-2003, 01:14 PM
I'll be there as well. Possibly as Roger or Domon. ^_^ count me in then.

06-16-2003, 01:24 PM
Whenever I get done with the mini-masq I will come right over. I'll probably just wear the outfit from the masq. ^_^

06-16-2003, 01:33 PM
*checks schdule* Hmmm... Witch Hunter, Last Exile, and Those Who Hunt Elves are all that we'd miss... No problem there! Woot! I'm there.

06-16-2003, 01:37 PM
That's right at the end of the Suikoden meet, so I will be there as Yuber with Katan as Albert.

> Witch Hunter

There is a Witch Hunter gathering? Witch Hunter Robin? I will miss all the sexy Amon cosplayers? Nooooo! ;)

06-16-2003, 01:42 PM
No no no... lol! Not a gathering. I'm talking about the actual show is going to be playing in a room at that moment. ^_^; And yes, it's Witch Hunter Robin. (I'm one of those people whose entire day is run by the film schedule.. lol)

L to the 3rd
06-16-2003, 03:22 PM
can we bring fireworks to celebrate? XD

06-16-2003, 03:31 PM
Er, Friday. Evening. How unexpected. (Sneaky Al ^_-)
Okay, looks like I'll be toting some of the j-rockers over for this and -then- we'll be heading off for our silly photo gathering (which is totally unaffliated with the j-rock events...)

How late does it stay light outside by the way?

06-16-2003, 03:45 PM
Whoosh I'll be there as one of the many Rikkus!! ~__^

06-16-2003, 05:50 PM
try to make it will most likely be wearing my chise costume.

Yggdrasil Pie
06-16-2003, 06:35 PM
Oh my, on friday...I'm gonna be so busy...XD;;;;

Ahhhahah, oh well, I'll make it...somehow...XD

Hmm...I'll probably be going as Nakoruru Bust.

06-16-2003, 07:36 PM
Yeah, I'll be there in my new costume. ^_^v

06-16-2003, 08:57 PM
I most likely won't be there, we may or may not be over at disneyland then... depends on if we go thurs or fri ^^;

Kell: Awww.. it wouldn't be the same w/o you there if you missed it. Going to D-land on 4th of July? That's when the park will be super-crowded with non-convention peeps, as well as that day being the 2nd biggest day for AX (Saturday is always the busiest) Perhaps you can go to D-land for most of the day, get your hand-stamped, and come back to the con in time for the gathering. ;) You made it to the Katsucon c.com gathering which was huge, so try to see if you can make it to his one, which may be 2X or 3X bigger. :D

Sounds like most of you will be able to make it :) My costume will probably be Ryosuke Takahashi and I will have the FC3S with me for the gathering. :skidude2:

More details on the gathering coming up, as Admin and I are still discussing stuff regarding the photoshoot..

06-16-2003, 09:18 PM
I'm gonna try to get them to change it to thursday! lol, I think I am going to tell my parents & ash that our craftsmenship judging is on friday and I don't know when, so we can't go to disneyland that day XD
hehehehe yeah >D

06-17-2003, 12:10 AM

Eep, I hope if I get into Karaoke semi-finals/finals it won't conflict =\ But I hope I can make it! ^__^ depending on the karaoke I'll either be there as Maria from FFII or Celes in opera garb

06-20-2003, 09:39 AM
Does it matter if the costume is not handmade, as in store bought? Cause I can't sew one bit, so I bought everything for my first cosplay. ^^; Us lazy-no-sewing-skillz people are welcome too, right? *L*

06-20-2003, 04:29 PM
Going to be cosplaying for the first time on Friday. :)

Yeah, this isn't masquerade or anything. We aren't being judged on costumes (not formally anyway), so I'm sure you are completly welcome. ^_^ I can't sew too well and my costume is sort sucky, but I'm proud of it. So yeah! See you there.

06-20-2003, 11:32 PM
ooh... If I get my costume done... I hate dyeing... I will be Fujin at that time..

Thursday is a better day for D-land... but yeah! It's Seramyu day! Which reminds me.. I have to make my tape...

06-21-2003, 12:16 AM
Ahh, after the J-rock masquerade it is....umm....I might make it, but I reaally want to see Witch Hunter Robin. Unless Yui totes me off there with the rest. XD

06-21-2003, 11:47 AM
Unless lightning strikes me down, it is more than likely going to be Franz // Suikoden 3 as I have nothing else planned for that day ^__^

06-21-2003, 11:56 AM
> Unless lightning strikes me down


06-21-2003, 12:36 PM
Franz: Watch out for Yuber using a Thunder Rune. ;)

I'll be Caesar since that was my plan for the day. :)

06-21-2003, 03:39 PM
Well, cool then! I'll be there as either Sasuke from Naruto or Eiji Kikumaru from Prince of Tennis (I'm pretty sure it'll be Sasuke though, since I scheduled the PoT gathering on Thursday).

Hope to meet all you wonderful people...(although I may not talk or do anything at all since I am really shy around lots of people, lol)

06-21-2003, 07:03 PM
*L* Oh man..This is goin to be my FIRST anime con and my first cosplaying at a con...So any one willnig to point me in the right direction will be good. Chances are I'll be not participating in anything but jsut watching and socializing and stuff.
I might be dressed as The Paper for the cosplay.com shoot. Not sure yet. Depends on what i actually can get done by con weekend. *L*


06-21-2003, 11:02 PM
Is it a gathering of WHR cosplayers or are you just talking about the anime being shown?

The anime, I've been wanting to see it for a long time. But if they're selling it in the dealer's room, I probably will just buy it instead of seeing it. There's a cosplay gathering too--that I'd like to attend as well, but unfortuneatley I don't know when that takes place. ^_^;

Yuchan, I'll be walking around as Luc allllll day Friday, trust me ~_~

And as Sakaki all day Thursday, at this rate o_O Or I'll be Sakaki in a dress if I go to the dance *DIES* No, nevermind, I didn't say that. Ahem.

06-22-2003, 02:03 AM
Rosiel, it's the show I'm talking about. I don't know when the shoot is, but I am refering the it being shown in a screening room.

06-23-2003, 03:25 AM
I'll be there, I hope...

06-24-2003, 05:47 PM
Only thing I've got planned for Friday besides showing off my Kagato costume is the AMV contest. Just hope I don't overheat with that durn cloak. It was fine for Halloween, but July? ^_^

06-24-2003, 06:03 PM
anybody else going to be around wed evening? just curious ^^

06-24-2003, 07:25 PM
I will be around, I have to take care of somethings on wednesday ^^

06-24-2003, 08:15 PM
I'll be there Wednesday evening too ^_^

for cosplay.com photoshoot I'm gonna wear my remade old summoner Yuna costume XD

06-25-2003, 03:21 PM
I live in the area so I'd be up for doing something Wednesday evening if something is planned..

06-25-2003, 06:43 PM
Isn't that just around when the KOF shoot is? Looks like I'll be Yuri for the Cosplay.com shoot. ^_^;

06-25-2003, 07:03 PM
I'll be there as Chibodee. That gives me just enough time to get a photo taken then run back to the room to change into my kurama outfit.

06-25-2003, 07:46 PM
I don't know what I'll be.... probably Dita... unfortunatly the other chobits character I was going to go with cancelled... so I'm an incomplete set, but hey, whatever...

06-25-2003, 08:52 PM
I'll be there probably as Antisora.... or just a Sora-costume-looking person in black. -_-;; Afterall, the KH gathering is the only thing I have on Friday, I think.

I had fun at the Fanime gathering. It was crazy seeing all those people! I definately am going to come to this one at Expo! See you all there. I will either be Inu-Yasha or Citan from Xenogears. I am not sure. *wave*

06-28-2003, 03:45 AM
i'll be there...^^ unless of course the lack of sleep strikes me dead...no clue what i'll be wearing....hopefully clothes...i throw something together for the shoot ^^
