to anyone that loved my Esther : thanks. It made me feel really really GREAT. I'm just sad some of you caught me after my broken rosary and i couldnt wear it any longer...

to the Aizen who stopped me in Halibel : do you have an account here? Thanks for stopping me. You're the only person that stopped me in that costume that i only wore for a short while. Idk, it just meant so much to me. And you were a great Aizen.

I hope everyone had a wonderful con. I will surely miss the Sheraton next year, but i'm happy we'll be getting more space! Its the attendees that make the con, not the place...so lets hopefully have an awesome AZ in 2009 as well! Cant wait. This was absolutely my fav AZ and CON to date

My shoutouts are going to sound awfully similar to Zipchan's, buuut...

Zipchan: for letting me freeload at your house for a week before the con, of course. =D

Haruhi, Tira and Kurogane: for putting up with me for a year (more than that in some cases) and my insane cosplay and skit ideas, learning all those dances, and getting on stage with me and performing. You guys are more awesome than you will ever know, and I'll see all of you later! =D

Luigi, Jess, Matt and Andrea: because whenever I got to actually talk to you guys, it made my weekend

Marielle-taichou, Duane, Wataru, Perry and George: because without you guys, the video room would have failed so hard Dx

Lelouch: for being tons of fun to hang out with all con, 'specially all night Saturday with the beach ball game...

Everyone that congratulated me on winning for my AMV: thanks, and you all cheered me up more than you'd ever believe after the cosplay skits were over!

Everyone that thought our skit was funny: you people are the reason I go to cons!

Guilmon: for being one of the only three Digimon cosplayers I've ever met in real life!

The guys that ran video room 1: for being super helpful and awesome

Ria and her posse: for being cool!

Animazement staff and volunteers: because now that I know how hard it is to help run a convention, I really appreciate what you guys do!

Everyone that was in the impromptu beach ball game in the lobby at 4am: because that really was the most fun I've ever had that early in the morning

Everyone that gave me food: you all WIN AT LIFE

Katu Fushigi
05-27-2008, 04:09 PM
Okay. Scared Katu is scared to post, but shout outs are needed.

Staffers: Holy hell, you guys rocked it this year. Thanks for making it fun, safe and answering my innane questions.

Zipchan: Waaah. You were fun. Sorry to be so sleepy on Sunday. Fire alarms and whatnot. I'm still sleepy. Thanks for being my "second" Haruhi. XD;

Caroline and Day: It was hella fun hangin' out with you guys. Sorry I didn't get to really say goodbye... saa, Sayonara, Hona Sayonara, ashita wa kitto hallelujah!

Everyone who Congratulated Me: Thank you again. o_o Thank you. Did that really happen? Thank you. Thank you.

Yuuko-san-Cosplayer-san: ...You have inspired me to do a really freaking hard cosplay myself. It will be less interesting, less professional and less feminine, but you are my inspiration nonetheless.

Utai: AAAAAAAH. Every time, it's like, "LOL HI! LOL BYE!" We should try and haaaaang some more.

CardcaptorKiki-chan: I've already talked to you about it in your journal. My secret desire. XD It was fun seeing you again.

Bucky: Cool to see you again, man!

Everybody Else that I have Ultimately Forgotten and I Am Sincerely Sorry About That: Way to make it an awesome con guys. Made of win. Made of win and magic.

05-27-2008, 10:46 PM
Here we go:

My roomies, GaaraSandNin and Socks: You guys are awesome, thankies for indulging me with the picture shots, and just in general, being the crazy fun guys you are ;D.

The J-Day Gang: Nice seeing all of you, FINALLY. One year later, here we are! Loved all your costumes too!

That Aizen Gaara mentioned: Dude, you were awesome. Aizen's ban kai is another Aizen.

The Air Gear group: Dudes. You. Rocked. Enough said. I can't wait to sell you all again, and hope that it's soon.

The JGR group: All of you were really chillax. Loved your AG cosplay when you wore it on Saturday, oh how I wish I would of taken pics with you guys in an AG shot, but maybe next time, eh? ;D

Pokemon and Bleach groups: I spent less time at the shoots than at the other places, but for the time I was there, it nice taking pics with you guys!

Saturday Night's DJ: Really loved your tracks dude- One More Time was such a great way to end a really awesome rave.

To all those that took my picture, and in general, everyone cool from AZ: Thanks a lot- you guys really made the con worthwhile!

Tigress
05-27-2008, 10:53 PM
Copied from the AZ forum:

Joe, Lindsey and Piper: You guys are always great roomies. Seeing you again made me realize how much I miss you two. Moogle Baby was easily the star this year! I had no idea that the passing thought I had of making a moogle costume would balloon into something that epic. I hope you get back to New York okay.

Sam, Sandy, Jim, Headphone Mike, Kyuubi and the rest of my fellow Animania regulars: I loved hanging out with you. I so wish I lived closer to the RTP area so we could get together more often. I will see some of you at Hero's Con next month!

Wickline: You are such a wonderful Alucard and asking me to lead you around the con on the leash led to much more silliness later on. I still feel bad that you didn't make the Sunday shoot. We'll have to do some shots at another time.

Writing Otaku, aderyn and the rest of the Burlington crew: It's great to finally put faces to names. I hope to see you at Hypermind more often. I'm not kidding when I say that Denise loves cosplayers. And we definitely won't mind more Magic converts.

Kat and Wendy: Thank you so much for helping me pimp my business! As I was working on my latest commission, I realized just how much I love doing this, so I will take all the help I can get. Also, Kat: You are the cutest Schrodinger ever.

Wake Co. Library ladies: Yes, I would still love to help out with your cosplay events!

Nakata-san: You totally made my con. I don't usually go to autograph signings, but I am completely fangirling over the pic you took with me.

Mitsuishi-san: Thank you for finally being able to find the time to come to AZ. Though Voltron, Speed Racer and Astro Boy are really my "first" anime series, Sailor Moon is the series that really got me into anime as a hobby. I hope you got to take pictures with some Sailor Moon cosplayers like you wanted. I already decided I want to do Sailor Iron Mouse and am thinking about doing Sailor Moon just for you.

Staff members: Thanks for letting me sit behind the judges so I could watch Moogle Baby's cosplay debut. I also got a lot of shots of the cosplay, with Mr. Hebert's head in most of them. Laughing Oh, and... Chii!

Orochimaru and Jaraiya from Saturday: I'm sorry I had to run off so quickly, but my friends were waiting on us for dinner and I was the ride. I would have spent the entire afternoon with you both if that wasn't the case. I wish I could have found you when I returned. The Sannin are my favorite characters out of Naruto and Tsunade is fast becoming one of my "trademark" cosplays, painful Death Heels be damned. And I love doing fan service photos!

Cosplay Chess panel organizers: Thanks again for a wonderful time. I was glad to help with crowd control and getting arm bands on everyone. Please let me know if I can help out again, since it's my favorite panel.

Hellsing cosplayers: I don't think I've ever had so much fun doing a photoshoot. And the Anderson that I hung out with afterwards was hilarious as we traded historically accurate, in character insults.

I have quite a few shout outs. e.e

Artist Peoples: You guys were so fun to talk to and made the con very interesting, not to mention everyones art was very great. A special shout-out to the Lain cosplayer, you were really nice. =)

Staff: Obviously, it would be utter chaos without the staff, and I bet it was really hard on you guys this year. You guys rock, especially the staffer who had my back during an incident in the hallway. Thanks a bunch guys.

Random Shirtless Guy: Thank you for bringing me water, even though there was a mix-up in who I was talking to when I was asking my friend for water. You're very kind and that extra water really helped especially since I wasn't feeling well. =) Thank you random shirtless guy!!

Friends: Obviously a con isn't fun without friends, you guys are the best. ;)

People I met: I met a lot of people and most of you, with a few acceptions, were awesome! Especially those who said I was adorable, it was very flattering. xD Those who took pictures of my Sophie cosplay, those who recognized my Kagura Tenouzu cosplay, and the people who I hung out with and am happy I'll be able to keep in touch with. ;) Everyone is so awesome.

To everyone else: Even if I didn't get a chance to talk to everyone, everyone is what makes Animazement. Without everyone, well.. There'd be no more Animazement and it's just so awesome how so many people can have the same interests as one another, even if they vary. You guys make me look very forward to next year. Can't wait.

Katamari rollers: I had more fun rolling that Katamari up then I thought possible. I really wish that I hadn't lost track of everyone after I had to follow the Katamari out of the rave (I was the jerk dressed up as the Prince). I have some pretty rad pictures of us taking that thing apart a few days later, which I'll post if anyone's interested.

Guy With the Boombox: You made the Katamari rolling 10 times cooler then it would have been without you. You, sir, are a scholar and a gentleman.

Girl in the red suit (Sailor Moon cosplay?): One of the people who was rolling up the Katamari. I was hoping to get to talk to you more on Sunday, but I didn't see you. I think that the glowsticks that you gave me to put in there when I was outside were officially the Last Rollups of the Katamari.

Okay, so I'm a few days late in finding the thread for it, but I do have a couple of shout-outs to put out there.

Staff - I already told many of you this at the con itself, but still thanks again for making AZXI such an amazing experience!!

Katu - For being my awesome twin (like that needs to be said...XD) and for all the fun we had hanging out in Track 3 during cosplay. Thanks for getting that water/cold napkins for my group and me around our skit! Wolf Link greatly appreciated it! And if you ever need me to sign again, you know where to find me. XD

Sudanro - For making me one happy Fire Emblem fangirl, for making the cosplay line even more tolerable, and for the awesomeness during the Friday Zelda Photoshoot.

Everyone who took my picture, complimented me on my costume, or just liked seeing Wolf Link - Thank you so, so much! Every time I got stopped for a picture, you guys just added to my con experience. And if you complimented me on my costume and didn't see me nod in appreciation, I apologize. I was trying to stay in character as much as possible for when I was in larger settings as well as for the pictures (that's why I didn't speak and was limited to barks, growls, and howls), but please know that I acknowledged and appreciated every single good word you guys sent my way.

The Cosplay Audience - Thanks for your support! My Amaterasu, Midna, and I all appreciate your cheers! We couldn't have gotten Third Place Novice without you!

I would like to give a big internet thank you to the Dark Link that gave me the awesome Zelda necklace Friday in the dealer's room (I was dressed as Wind Waker Zelda.) I was confused at first, but it was such a nice gesture and it really made me happy, not to mention that Friday was my birthday, so it was even cooler. Thank you!

I know I'm a bit late...but I guess I'll doa couple shout outs ^^;; Sorry I don't really have names..but I figure you know who you are XD

To the people that came up to me and said they enjoyed last years "Manna manna" skit while in the waiting room for the masq: Thank you XD I'm actually surprised people enjoyed it or even remember it...or remember me. I hope you enjoyed our Grease Naruto skit just as much ^^

Cosplay Chess: Everyone was awesome...though getting killed by large furry animals is just a shameful way for a king to die XD I'll never live it down. I'm proud of you anyway Anime side! To the Fatel Frame cosplayer I harassed with my claws..thanks for having some fun with me. Sorry I had to kill you XD

To the Trinity Blood Lilith cosplayer: OMG you rocked. You made our Trinity Blood shoot absolutely rock. Hurray for our Family Photo and thanks for letting Abel and I harass you by calling you Mommy everytime we saw you XD

CardcaptorKiki: Love ya Sakura-chan ~_^ Glad we got to hang out so much and I hope we can do it again at AWA!

Utai and Hersha: Glad you liked your banner and costumes ^^ Looks great in the pictures. Hope you had a lot of fun and I'll see ya at AWA! (We'll discuss the room thing...)

Seems like there is so much more...but my brain doesn't want to remember right now.

Haha, I should check Cosplay.com for stuff more often. Sailormoon cosplay, indeed. <3

And it's awesome to hear that the glowsticks were the last rollups! That makes me feel warm and squishy inside!

~~~

As usual, my shoutouts go to my squeeing, glomping fangirls who make cosplaying Seiya so fulfilling. I loved going into the chinese food place down the hall and hearing one of them going "That's my Seiya!"

Unfortunately, I won't be attending Animazement next year, as I'm studying abroad in Japan, but eh, I'm certainly not complaining too much!

TINA, JOEY, CONNIE i hope you enjoyed this year as much as before and i hope everyone comes back in the future.

KEVIN AND CHRIS if your reading this, i am so glad you had so much fun and i feel good that i got the chance to spread the otaku love of animazement.

EVERYONE THAT I SPOKE TO IN THE CRAFTSMANSHIP LINE it was great to talk to you. i know i looked crazy standing there triming tiny tiny threads hanging off my super pink kimono. LOL. but i have to say i am still amazed at Yuko. you really should have won SOMETHING! don't be discouraged, your only 16 and already have more talent and ability than most people will ever have. keep at it.

My roommates: Thanks for not crapping out on me like some people did. You guys are awesome! (Drunk people are amazing :))

Tohma: I was so happy to see you again! I was also really happy to see your Cain(I ♥d it btw). Sorry for making you bring your Ritsuka for nothing. I feel really bad. I apologize. :[

Katherine: I just met you this year and you're the coolest girl. Though I'm sad I lost count on how many times I shot you with Wesker's gun.

Sushi: I loved seeing you again but next time we need to hang out more. Thanks for the many hugs ♥

Mike: It's always nice seeing you. I loved your Cloud costume. When I told my sister about the pin she said, "Nice. You're wrecking other people's costumes!" So I hope it didn't do much damage. She also loved your Mantsumoto. She thought you looked really hot. And btw, I'd trade my Wolfwood cross for your sword in a heartbeat. It's better and lighter. :D

Rick: It sucks that we didn't get to hang out as much as we did last year(and that's saying a lot). Maybe next year... ? :]

Meev: Seeing you was a highlight this year since out plans to meet up before AZ kept falling apart. Call me the next time you're in Raleigh. I am so glad you liked your gift and really glad the Gir shirt fit you. I really thought you'd be swimming in it. I also LOVED meeting your friends. They're some of the best people I've ever met. Ever.♥♥♥

Ian: Thanks so much for hanging out with me and for putting up with my stubbornness. I don't know why you still hang out with me. I'm mean. xD
