Hey hey!
The dates and venue have been announced. Anime Vegas will be held this Labor Day Weekend, August 30th through September 1st 2008 at the Renaissance Hotel.

This is our first time in a hotel! I can't wait!

YAY ANIME VEGAS!

I am co-director for the Masquerade, so please come to me with any questions or concerns you have about the competition or cosplay in general.

Masquerade rules are currently being revised, along with the awards, and hopefully I will be able to publish them in a few weeks. Signups aren't until August. Because of the new venue we will unfortunately not have a beautiful theatre to use for the show, but I'm sure we'll do just as well in the Main Events room at the Renaissance.

On the cosplay gatherings front: we're trying to get together a Phoenix Wright group. (Did I hear you wanted to be Apollo Justice, AnimeJ? XD) The more characters the better!

Quick question... how are the outside areas around the hotel for photos/cosplay shoots? The hotel looks really lovely, but outside photos are always better if the space is available! <3

Woo hoo! I am so excited to be in a hotel this year! (Although I will miss the theater for the masq. :crylaugh: ) The group I'm bringing this year is already shaking with glee about the whole con! (Ugh, 40 teenagers. . . someone shoot me!)

Tenshi: Nat and I are still trying to decide who we want to be in the Phoenix Wright group. Can you give me a list of who is taken or who is needed so we can have help with our choice -- they're all so much fun! (I'm leaning toward Franziska Von Karma if she's available.)

Tenshi

shellypants: I haven't actually been to the hotel yet, so I don't know what it looks like outside. I'll see if I can pop down this weekend and take some pictures of the grounds.

missrelena: Here's the list as far as I know:

Robbie: Hobo Phoenix
AnimeJ: Apollo (please, please, please? XD)
Erin: Edgeworth
Jasmine: Franziska
George: Gumshoe, hopefully.
Me: Max
And someone else as Ema Skye, I think.

I don't THINK anyone cares about doubles. (I'd love a Max army. That would be the best thing ever!)

I registered for Anime Vegas too! I'm looking forward to it since I had to back out last year due to finances (no roomies! ;.;) But I am determined to attend this year! Hopefully I will be competing in the masquerade. I don't get too compete much any more since I'm too busy staffing these conventions...

I hoping to get my room and everything settled this week. I love this con, I've started call it "my con" even though I don't live in Vegas.

I met some really cool people last year, hope to see them again this year (especially Motoko). I'm also happy we have a bigger venue this year too!

This will be my first year cosplaying at AV and I wanted to know if any gatherings are being planned. Last year the count was about 4000 I think so this year should be bigger, it would be nice to have a couple gathering.

Tenshi
05-11-2008, 02:59 PM
It will be good to see you again, NyuNyu :D.

Erudito, check out the forums on our main website (www.animevegas.com), and you'll find some gatherings already being planned.

Everyone: here are some pictures I took at the Renaissance last weekend. They're not great but you get the idea.

40 teenagers? wow that is a lot to be briniging.


i'll be cosplaying as krillin or goku from dragonball z, yamamoto from hitman reborn. i might also dress up as sora from kaliedo star depending if i drive or take the bus to vegas or might get a prince of tennis costume.

05-19-2008, 06:31 PM
4 i might also dress up as sora from kaliedo star

Which one of Sora's costumes? I can't wait to see that! Not enough people cosplay from Kaleido Star! YAY! :angel:

Ok, I am now regestured for the con and hotel. I am so going. ^_^v

I'm going as CCS- Sakura and I'm thinking of doing a Sailor Moon costume of some sort. Maybe. Then again, I would like to join the phonix wright cosplay but it just sounds really cool.

OMG! I'm so excited for AV this year since I wasn't able to go last year. It's going to be a long drive from San Francisco but I'm so excited to see everyone! :D

I'm not completely sure what I'll be bringing, it depends what comes out the best for AX. I know I will bring Jo from Burst Angel but I'm not sure of the other 2. Possibilities are Gretel (Black Lagoon), Rursus (DDR/Beatmania song Xepher), Shinx (Pokemon), Ritsuka (Loveless) or if I have my Akito (Air Gear) done I may bring that! So excited! XD

Lady Saya
06-10-2008, 12:06 PM
I'm really determined to attend this year. If I attend I'll probably will be cosplaying Mikami Teru from Death Note, Kyoya Ohtori from Ouran, and/or Death The Kid from Soul Eater.

missrelena
06-10-2008, 01:50 PM
Yay! Another Ouran cosplayer! I'll have to glomp you, Lady Saya, in my Renge costume! So happy!

Do Kid! He's so awesome! I'm determined to cosplay him at some point.

Alright! XD I hope there are more Ouran cosplayers. I'd like to have at least everyone in the club so we can have a mini-group or something. :"D

Do Kid! He's so awesome! I'm determined to cosplay him at some point.

I really wanna cosplay Kid just I don't know what to do about his stripes in his hair. >.<

Anti Ai-chan
06-10-2008, 11:10 PM
Yeah that seems to be the big issue with me too. I haven't quite figured it out. Paint comes to mind but that's going to make the hair stiff. Such a predicament!

Lady Saya
06-10-2008, 11:26 PM
Yeah... I also thought of starting off with a white wig and perhaps dye it black except for that area with the three stripes but I don't think that would be a good idea either. >.< I might just end up using acrylic paint in the end... T_T

Anti Ai-chan
06-10-2008, 11:30 PM
You could start with a white and marker or airbrush the black in but that would be ridiculous!

Lady Saya
06-11-2008, 12:16 AM
X_X Yeah. Especially I don't want the marker/dye-stuff to rub on to my shirt collar.

As of yet, it is not known if they will have day passes or not.

you can try using wig dye

Anti Ai-chan
06-11-2008, 12:28 AM
Most marker won't, especially if you use a permanent kind.

@persian: Thanks for the link. I've been to that site more than my fair share. lol I'm not sure how you would use the dye without getting the white lines black. It's such an easy cosplay except for the hair.

Oh! Saya, are you making the guns or do you have a Liz and Patty?

Lady Saya
06-11-2008, 12:35 AM
I'll probably will be making/buying guns. I don't have a Liz or a Patty at the moment. D;

Anti Ai-chan
06-11-2008, 12:41 AM
Oh I look forward to seeing them! I'm such a prop nerd, another reason I must do Kid. lol Currently I have no takers for Liz or Patty either, it makes me sad! D: I love Patty so much, she makes me laugh! If I didn't love Kid as much as I do, then I would be Patty.

Lady Saya
06-11-2008, 12:59 AM
...I fail at prop-making. D;

XD I love Patty as well. As for other Soul Eater characters I'll probably will cosplay Tsubaki eventually if I find a Black Star cosplayer. ^^;

Anti Ai-chan
06-11-2008, 01:37 AM
lol It takes a lot of time, effort and patients. Patients is the key!

My friend wants to do a Black Star Cosplay but he's 6' tall! lol Tallest Black Star ever! I think I lucked out with Kid, he's short! Now I'm super excited to cosplay...even though I won't be Kid anytime soon. Though I'm eager to see your Kid if you decide to do him! ^^

Lady Saya
06-11-2008, 07:44 PM
That's true. As for my case: I'll probably will need a LOT of patience. ^^;

lol... I'm short as well. ;_; While your friend will be the tallest Black Star I'll probably will be the shortest Tsubaki ever (...if I cosplay her that is).

Anti Ai-chan
06-11-2008, 07:56 PM
Haha You guys should pair up! That would be great! How tall are you?

Lady Saya
06-11-2008, 08:06 PM
That would be awesome! XD (I'm about 5 '3). ;_;

Anti Ai-chan
06-11-2008, 08:41 PM
Nice! I'm 5'2"!

PS, it's been decided that we're hanging out at AV! Are you from around there?

Lady Saya
06-11-2008, 08:49 PM
Definitely! X3

I used to live in Henderson,NV for a few years but currently I'm in San Diego. ^^; But I'm going back soon since I'm planning to attend UNLV.

Anti Ai-chan
06-11-2008, 09:12 PM
Ah! That should be a fun drive then, or are you flying?

Lady Saya
06-11-2008, 09:26 PM
Driving, unfortunately. I wish I could fly instead. D:

Anti Ai-chan
06-11-2008, 09:35 PM
I know what you mean. My friend and I are coming from San Francisco. We will make sure to have plenty of good music! lol

Lady Saya
06-12-2008, 05:42 PM
Especially since you guys have a longer way to go compared to me. @_@; I tend to bring my dvd player though (but I usually end up falling asleep during long drives). ^^;

persiandragon
06-12-2008, 05:48 PM
if you don't feel like driving you can take the train to vegas if it is within your budget.

Anti Ai-chan
06-13-2008, 12:14 AM
Yeah but it gets to be much more amusing to be in a car where you can do whatever you want. It can get constricting on a train. Plus, for a con, I like to spaz and be loud. It will be entertaining. lol

Lady Saya
06-13-2008, 11:02 AM
Believe me, I'd rather take a plane or a train but I have other reason on why I'm driving. ^^;

Anti Ai-chan
06-13-2008, 11:32 AM
Oh? Care to elaborate? lol

Also, I have a 4'9" B.A.R. that's probably going with me. It's made out of wood but I don't think I would do well in a train or airplane with it. lol

persiandragon
06-13-2008, 08:48 PM
well i hope you both have a safe drive to vegas as well from california.

Anti Ai-chan

Let's just say I'm bringing a lotta stuff with me lol. XD

Anti Ai-chan
06-15-2008, 12:13 PM
Ah! That makes sense. I wouldn't say that I have a lot, but what I do have is fairly large and just wouldn't work via plane. Oh well!

Lady Saya
06-17-2008, 01:33 AM
And not to mention its even harder to bring props since security is so strict in airports nowadays. D:

Anti Ai-chan
06-17-2008, 09:54 PM
I went back in 06 with a friend but I didn't have the funds to go back last year. I loved it. It was small but I made so many awesome friends there.

Lady Saya
06-18-2008, 12:25 AM
I attended their first year back in 2004.

Anti Ai-chan

The following year I moved to Illinois so I haven't attended since then. ^^; Buuuut now that I'm back on the west coast I can go back again!

Anti Ai-chan
06-18-2008, 12:38 AM
Eww... lol How was it over there?

Lady Saya
06-18-2008, 12:41 AM
I was fine with living in Illinois (it's pretty laid back there) but the weather was the one that killed me. x_x Humidity during the summer and long, cold winters... ;_; Ack.

:"D If I see you at Comic Con I'll make sure I'll say hi to ya. Just look out for Death Note cosplayers (since that's what I'll be cosplaying this year). XD

Anti Ai-chan
06-18-2008, 10:27 PM
Well I'll be there on Saturday only. I'm not 100% positive but I think I'll be Jo from Burst Angel.

Lady Saya
06-18-2008, 11:44 PM
Saturday? Aww... I dunno if I'll be there Saturday for sure though (they're sold out on Saturday passes so it might be harder to volunteer). Dx

Anti Ai-chan
06-19-2008, 12:08 AM
Really?! They just had them available the other day! Good thing I bought mine. You're not going for all 4 days?

Lady Saya
06-19-2008, 02:27 AM
I didn't bother buying a four day pass since I'm technically only attending like 2 days at the most. I'm probably going to that Video Games Live concert on Thursday night (so I probably won't be there that day) but I'll definitely will be at CC on Friday. :"D

I attended their first year back in 2004.

Wow! It was TINY in 2004! Only two rooms. It is much larger now!

Does anyone want to do an Ouran gathering? I can do it either Saturday or Monday. (Sunday I've already committed to Trinity Blood.) I have a few other friends I might be able to coerce back into their Ugly Yellow Dresses and Blue Blazers. Yay Ouran!:skidude2:

The third day is ON Labor Day, so as it is a Federal Holiday. . . there shouldn't be any school. Rougette, you should be able to come all three days!

1. I have my reg all taken care of
2. Getting a hotel room this week
3. I've added a tread on a Type Moon gathering, with no posts yet...
4. If anyone cares http://www.animevegas.com/index.php?option=com_joomlaboard&Itemid=3&func=view&id=6367&catid=12 (see number 3)
5. Tenative cosplay list: Keitaro (Love Hina) Mikami (Death Note), James (Silent Hill 2), Aion (Chrno Crusade), Watanuki (xxxholic), Giovanni (Pokemon)
6. Yeah I know it's too much (see number 5)
7. I'm trying to get some of my friends to come along, but so far none of them have confirmed.

Me and 2 friends are gonna do a group from one of the Miyazaki movies
Then Captain Jack Sparrow
And since I just found out I can go on the 3rd day (thanks for that btw)
I'm gonna either be a giant death note or maybe a tetris piece
But then again the tetris pieces are getting over done :(

What about you?

Anti Ai-chan
06-24-2008, 09:35 PM
I actually just saw someone cosplay as a death note! Weird! lol I personally love Tetris pieces, especially if you have a bunch and can fit in different ways! XD

I'm not sure what I'm bringing actually. lol I'll probably bring Jo from Burst Angel because my friends who's coming with me is a photographer and wants to do a photoshoot in the desert. ^^;;;

Others I may bring: Gretel (Black Lagoon), Shinx (Pokemon), Ritsuka (Loveless), Rursus (DDR/Beatmania song Xepher), Bridget (Guilty Gear), Konata (Lucky Star), Asuka (Eva) or if I'm done with Akito (Air Gear) I may bring him or if I have a new wig for Komugi (Nurse Witch Komugi) I may bring her. OMG That's a lot to choose from. DX I should narrow down my possibilities. lol

Ho' shizz! You're planning to cosplay Mikami, James, and Watanuki? :"D Friggen awesome!

wow, thanks.
Since the con has a hotel it will be easier to endure being in black suits/school uniforms while in Vegas. Yay Hotels!

Oh I also wanted to add something else:
On the Anime Vegas forum I bought forth a question about interest in cosplay gatherings at AV. As most threads are like "I'm going as sch-n-such is anyone else going from that series?" I figured that there might be some interest in gatherings. Since gatherings are usually organized via coscom, but as there isn't much room here. I wanted to know if there is interest among us, how about we try to build some gatherings via the vegas forums?

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Anti Ai-chan
06-25-2008, 01:14 AM

I know what you mean. I'm crossplaying Mikami (as well as other characters that wear suits/jackets pretty much). XD I'm so glad that I wouldn't have to go outside to another hotel to change and of course... air conditioning! XD

Rougette
06-25-2008, 03:43 PM
Haha, the tetris pieces sound like a really good idea now. Hopefully I can get my friends to do it too.

Whoa...that's a lot of costumes, you totally try should narrow down your possibilities, unless your getting a hotel room, that way you could keep changing throughout the day.
xDD
The ones I recognize are so elaborate though
That's awesome

@Erudito: Not only do I agree with the whole thank goodness for indoor air conditioning but I like your idea about the cosplay gatherings
I don't think it would be too hard to cordinate everyone into meeting at the same time and all.
But then again, things usually work out better in my mind than in real life ^^;

Anti Ai-chan
06-25-2008, 03:55 PM
@Rougette: lol Obviously I'm going to narrow that down to 3 or 4 costumes. I just need to figure out which ones. Any suggestions based off the ones you know? I plan on staying with friends for Vegas because I think they booked a room or are going to, so a hotel shouldn't be a problem. ^^

Lady Saya
06-25-2008, 05:37 PM
@Ai-chan: Which version of Asuka are you planning to wear?

Well setting up everything becomes much easier with multiple people. I think if we have a set group of "gathering bosses" then it will become easier to set everything up. At this point I think what need to be done is there needs to be a set location or locations and then the next step will be to get the word out and set up times/days. After that, I hope, everything will slide into place.

Edit:
I've added a thread about cosplay gatherings on the anime vegas forums. Please check it out and post if you are interest:

I was 17 when I went to AV back in 06 and I had a great time. It sounds like your more concerned about doing things in Vegas, rather than going to the con. All cons are pretty similar, it's just the people you meet that make each one a different experience.

I'm going to have a table in the Artists' Alley. I was thinking, perhaps I should bring the Costume Repair Station Kit? I brought it to AX, and about five people made use of the safety pins, hot glue gun, Res-Q-tape, and so forth. It's got a number of things that are handy to have in the case of a cosplay emergency.

It's one more bin to throw in the back of the car... I hear that Anime Vegas is having a Con Suite, so hooray for that -- I won't be giving away granola bars and bottles of water at my table if they're giving away soft drinks and snacks somewhere upstairs. So that means I'll have a little extra room in the car.

The admins have been working on a bunch of other stuff on the website for a few years, and Anime Vegas grew to something worth noticing when they weren't paying attention.

I've heard from some of my friends who are on staff that the hotel it's at this year is nice, so I don't think you have to worry about that. Also, unless you plan on going out to the strip at night, I don't think you'll need to be too concerned about the Vegas scene. Most of the days will be take up by the con where we all share the same interests. I don't think you need to be paranoid about anything, just stay in good company. :D

Nothing to be paranoid about. Las Vegas is just like any other city (except that we are a smaller city with some neat big city stuff). The whole "Sin City" thing is just to draw tourists.

No worries about Vegas, it's not like the movies and whatnot. Though there are tons of hobos. If you are worried find a person or two to hang with and you'll be fine, plus all cons are more fun with a group.

Hey guys, I heard a rumor that there's not going to be any yaoi/yuri stuff this year.
Does anyone know if it's true?

I'm pretty sure there's no hentai this year but I'm not sure about anything else.

I think you're right, considering I just saw Yaoi Press back on the dealers list.

HowdyTakitty: Haha, me too hun.
I've only got one costume 95% done and then maybe 50% on the other

I've been to Vegas before but never for an anime con. I mentioned before that I was looking for some people to join me on a trek to the Star Trek hotel on Saturday night. If anyone is up for it let me know and where a good place and time is too meet up at the con.

That sounds like fun, if I'm not caught up in something else, I might go.

Does anyone know if there will be single day passes? I'm interested in going on Saturday with a few of my friends. I checked the site, and they haven't mentioned the daily rates. It would be a waste for my group to buy the weekend pass, because we all have other plans.

I've been to about 2 of the past Anime Vegas cons and was able to purchase the single day admission each time (even in preregistration). T___T

Ah geeeeeeeze that's been making me go crazy the past few days. :lost: It'll really kill the attendance. >_<

I most likely won't be able to go this year because school costs (books/tuition) will ultimately come first. Who knows... I might just drop by the Renaissance hotel and then wander around in cosplay for pictures. XD

Maybe you can work something out so you can come.

Just a quick note for anyone planning to check out the Star Trek Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton:

Please keep in mind that the Labor Day weekend would be the final weekend for the show. The show closes on Labor day, September 1st, 2008. There was a contract dispute between the Las Vegas Hilton and Paramount, so it was decided not to renew the contract.

You can see the official letter from the official website here:

Official website of Star Trek: The Experience:
http://www.startrekexp.com/

This means that if you are planning to see the show, this coming weekend would be the last chance to see it before it closes.

Wow, I feel like I haven't been on in awhile! I'm super excited that I leave tomorrow for Vegas! *squeel* I also know which costumes I'll be bringing (finally): Bridget of Guilty Gear, Akito of Air Gear and Ritsuka of Loveless. Aka, I'm going to be super femmy boys all weekend! lol

I actually forgot to mention that I'm co-hosting a panel on Sunday. It's the cosplay idol panel from 4-5 so feel free to check it out or stop by and say hello! <3

Hey, day before I head out and I can't wait to leave!

Busy weekend for me: gatherings, maids, AMVs, and so much more.

And like a good last minute man I have my cosplay list:

Saturday: Walter (Hellsing)
Sunday: James (Silent Hill 2)
Monday: Keitaro (Love Hina)

With possible appearences by: Icchan (Angelic Layer) and Gumshoe (Ace Attorney series)

Since I'm in the AMV contest, glomp me for luck!

PS: Say "break a leg" not the other phrase used for well wishing before a contest, thanks.

Oh, I know, I know.....
(Does his bad Christopher Walken impression)
I have a fever, and the only cure is.... more cowbell. I need more cowbell, in this song...

Cosplaying Christopher Walken, that is so cool, I should do that one of these days.

Wait, did I ruin the surprise?
Oh man, I shouldn't have posted.....
