View Full Version : AX03 - Matrix Agent Gathering

06-25-2003, 08:05 PM
For the past few months, I've been staging a cosplay gathering for Anime Expo '03, focused around the current release of "Matrix: Reloaded" and the upcoming "Matrix: Revolutions"

The gathering would consist of a few of the major characters (Neo, Trinity, Morpheus, etc.), but focus on dozens of players acting as "Agents" (a simple costume consisting of a black suit, tie, and glasses). Poses, photos, and some of the more simpler scenes (i.e. "Everyone bum-rush Neo") could be performed.

And then, of course, I find that the Japanese have beat me to it. ^^;


This shot was taken in Shibuya Terminal about a week ago, where aproximently 100 "Agents" gathered to reinact scenes from the movie, take pictures, and basicaly amuse the general public.


More shots and the complete story can be found on This Thread (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=238636&perpage=25&pagenumber=5).

Now I don't expect to find 100 cosplayers in such a short time, but I have had a fair amount of response on the Anime Expo Message Board (http://pub130.ezboard.com/fanimeexpofrm48.showMessage?topicID=13.topic), and would like to ask if members of this board would be interested in joining our group of Agents as well ^^

uhm..i saw a guy dressed up as ghost at fanime 2003. i dont' think anyone knew who he was unless they played enter the matrix. looked just like him too.. simple suit, shades, same build, gotee, and a shaved head. maybe he'll be there at ax2k3.. that'd be a nice addition to your group. too bad i didnt' catch a name.. just a photo.

now where's niobi in her brown alligator skin suit.. :P

Karisu! Thank you for being our Trinity! You handled every pose and sequence with such professionalism, and your costume was both sexy and convincing ^_^

And thank you to all the agents and characters who made it to the gathering - Kitsune of the Anime Expo boards suggested that he took 70 (!!) shots over the full course of the gathering, and will be posting there shortly.

Thank you again for making my first gathering a successful one. Hope to see all of you (plus a few more ^_^) at the next gathering
