i was one of the silent hill nurses duo, and we were also part of an unplanned silent hill group (2 pyramid heads, alessa, and sometimes a different nurse) . we had a severed head with us. If anyone has anymore pics, please upload them! thanks~

Also, I was the "other" water nation katara that was there. The really good one was in the Avatar shows, not including the handful of fire nation kataras. It was kind of intense being around them but I loved both Aang and Katara, they were both really nice. :]

I was also, one of the two ganguros that were walking and dancing around.

Have a pic? Notice me?

(Anyone find some people's costumes amazing or outrageous?)

I loved the Haruhi group of three, and some of the Trinity blood cosplayers.

I was the Pokemon Trainer, from Emerald version. Nobody knew me...=[

But at least my ganguro costume was noticed

Wow~

I saw a lot of great cosplayers from Metro, but I didn't get as many photos as I should've TT_TT I'll edit and put 'em up either tonight or tomorrow.

If you have a picture of a Matt with two Game Boys on his chest and a Mello carried on a leash, let us know! We'd LOVE to see the pictures <3

I took quite a few pics and I'm really proud of myself. Metrocon i took like 16 and Jacon even less x3 but they will all posted on my cosplay myspace

www.myspace.com/imacosplayer (http://www.myspace.com/imacosplayer)

If you're there let me know and I'll put it in the caption line. I'm uploading them as we speak....er...type/read so they should be up before the end of the night (myspace is giving me problems ><) but they shall all be up by later on tonight!

EDIT: okay its going to take me a little longer then planned on getting my pics up. My roommates computer is being stupid and keeps freezing up on me. I'm in the computer room at my apartment complex but the computer that i'm on (and the only one that is free) has a messed up disc drive. Hopefully the girl on the other computer will leave so I can try using that one. I WILL have these pics up though....sometime soon!

Also did anyone get pics of me and/or my group. I was Shippuden Sakura all weekend. Friday it was Me, Naruto, SNJ Naruto, Kakashi and SNJ Kakashi. Saturday it was Me, Naruto, Sai and maybe a kakashi (she came and went). And friday it was me, a naruto and kakashi again though we all split up sunday and I was hanging with a Rikku (FFX-2). If you have any pics PLEASE let me know i will <3 you forever

I saw you in your Pokemon costume AND the ganguro costume (at least, I think that was you. Did you ask a Pence and Olette for a picture?) but I didn't have the chance to ask for a picture. >_< Sorry! You looked great!

I'll be uploading my stuff momentarily, and once I get my friend's photos I'll stick them all in a flickr gallery. :D

Hello people! I'm in the process of uploading my mom's pics from Saturday and my own pics from Sunday. They will be posted at BlackLilyCosplay.com . Just click on "Gallery" =3

If anyone has pics of me and/or my friends, they'd be appreciated.


Friday I was Giselle (Pink Dress) from Enchanted.

Saturday I was BeachParty!Azula from Avatar, although everyone thought I was Fire Nation Katara. I was with a BeachParty!Zuko and Fire Nation Toph, and later on a BeachParty!Ty Lee. We hung out with the Fire Show Avatar cosplayers for a bit and we had bunches of pics taken of us.

My friends were cosplaying as Ky Kiske from Guilty Gear (we had two of 'em, lol), Dante from DMC4 and Yukito from Tsubasa. He had the sweet staff that everyone seemed to compliment.


Any and ALL pics are appreciated! Once again, my photos will be posted at BlackLilyCosplay.com over the next day or so!!!

Friday I was Giselle (Pink Dress) from Enchanted.

I knew it! I told my sister,"Hey I think Ariel was Giselle." and she didn't agree. But I was totally right! You looked amazing!

Most of the pictures I have my sister took so most are half body shots. I need to teach her how to take pictures of the entire costumes! The pictures don't give cosplayers justice!

If anyone saw me I was Kairi from KH2 on Friday (I was the one with RED HAIR and salmon colored dress), Flonne from Disgaea on Saturday (I was with a Pleinair who was my little sister), and lastly I was a white mage running around on sunday.

Well, MetroCon has come and gone yet again!

My line up was

Female Ranma from Ranma 1/2. I see one picture taken already. xD I think I was in the middle of posing or something because I look completely lost. LoL.

Saturday I was Annette Renard with the Richter Belmont. I was surprised I was recognized from Castlevania seeing she is such a background character. Our group was one of the ones that won a Judge's Award. =3

Sunday I was Ranma briefly to take pictures with my Akane and P-Chan but afterwards, we changed into our Lolita's. We were the three dressed in the versions of Liquors ((Crown Royal, a Tequila, and Jack Danial's, we had a Stoli on Saturday night briefly)) We were taking a bunch of crazy pictures on the stairs.


Thanks in advance! I will try and get my pictures uploaded as soon as I can.

http://s134.photobucket.com/albums/q92/tsuoi_kaze/MetroCon%202008/

If anyone got a picture of me, I was the Yuuko in the big red kimono and purple corset. I'm asking in advance if I can use them for my cosplay gallery here, because I only have a few good pictures of me in the costume.

I saw so many of you but never had time to take out my camera! In fact, I JUST took the memory card out of its shrink wrap. D:

But I'm going to join in the begging, too. Be prepared, it's a long list. XD I don't think I got too many photos taken of me due to running around so much, but it doesn't hurt to ask, right?

(Photos included for reference since I either cosplay slightly obscure characters or ones EVERYONE does.) Friday, I was Ryoko Mitsurugi (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1428119/), a Gerudo girl (the palest one XD I was one of two in dark yellow), Reno (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1311976/), and Jou Kido (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1141481/). Saturday, I was Lust (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1584323/) (the one from the Chess Match), Kabuto Yakushi (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1213624/) (from the Metro Chunin Exam), Reno again, and Sha Gojyo (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/387083/) (with a wig and for the Saiyuki panel). Sunday was Lust and the Gerudo Girl again.

I can't wait to see all the photos from the convention, so I can see what all I missed in all my rushing!

Hey guys!

I was in several costumes over the weekend and am on the look-out for photos! Friday I wore Haruhi Fujioka. On Saturday, I was in my Griffith armor from Berserk (bluish hair, silver plated armor, purple cape lined in cranberry). I'm really looking for some shots with this costume, but haven't came across any yet. On Sunday, I was Pit from Brawl, the only Pit I think was cosplaying Sunday though I saw several over the weekend - I'm this Pit.

Pictures are being uploaded now...I know I have Hancock and some FFXII people and some Trinity Blood people and at one point in the day we met up with a massive group of Avatar cosplayers so if you were cosplaying from Avatar, I probably have a pic of you.

Pictures can be found at http://www.BlackLilyCosplay.com . Once in the main site, click "Gallery"!

You and one of the guys playing the Dark Knight Joker did the most excellent job of portraying a character. You looked exactly like Hancock and the guy doing the Joker made me think Heath Ledger had come back from the dead. He acted, talked and looked exactly like him.

So, if anyone has pics of that Joker, or any Joker (I like them all lol), post pics please!
And if anyone has pics of me in my red sari let me know. ^_^

Everyone must really be sick of reading posts like this but I just gotta ask, did any one get pictures of the FF12 group that was around on saturday? I was the Ashe and was just curious if anyone got pictures of us with the Ultima cosplayer.

-What I was wearing-
Friday: Agito and Gunner Yuna
Saturday: Wedding Ashe

Hello people! I'm in the process of uploading my mom's pics from Saturday and my own pics from Sunday. They will be posted at BlackLilyCosplay.com . Just click on "Gallery" =3

If anyone has pics of me and/or my friends, they'd be appreciated.


Friday I was Giselle (Pink Dress) from Enchanted.

Saturday I was BeachParty!Azula from Avatar, although everyone thought I was Fire Nation Katara. I was with a BeachParty!Zuko and Fire Nation Toph, and later on a BeachParty!Ty Lee. We hung out with the Fire Show Avatar cosplayers for a bit and we had bunches of pics taken of us.

My friends were cosplaying as Ky Kiske from Guilty Gear (we had two of 'em, lol), Dante from DMC4 and Yukito from Tsubasa. He had the sweet staff that everyone seemed to compliment.


Any and ALL pics are appreciated! Once again, my photos will be posted at BlackLilyCosplay.com over the next day or so!!!

I saw you all on Saturday walking into the Avatar panel(was the Toph in the back) and was like, "Dude, I have to see if I can get a- *looks over to see the person taking a photo of me* Eep." I wanted to do two things at once but I was into the conversation while my Iroh buddy was sitting closer. LOL Ah well. Made tea for everyone at the end of the panel.

Here's a few of the photos I got. A LOT of the other pictures I took are in my friend's camera... so sorry if you remember me photographing you and don't see yourself here. x__x

Also if you happened to cosplay a Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya character, there's a good chance you're in the 'Me with Metrocon 08 cosplayers' album as well. :3

On Friday I was Lind Wanijima (Air Gear) & Kaidoh Kaoru (Prince of Tennis) & Leon/Squall (KH2), and then on Saturday I was VAYNE CARUDAS SOLIDOR (FFXII) and then on Sunday I was back in Kaidoh~ <3

I sadly did not mange to take any pictures. I know my sister got a few pictures. Not many though.

If anyone saw me I was Kairi from KH2 on Friday (I was the one with RED HAIR and salmon colored dress), Flonne from Disgaea on Saturday (I was with a Pleinair who was my little sister), and lastly I was a white mage running around on sunday.

I was part of the other Disgaea group from Sat (you already talked with the Etna from our team) - good work.

Hello everyone, Im sorry I have to ask but does anyone have any pics of me? I didn't bring a camera and couldnt get any myself to keep, I had to have had at least 150 pictures taken of me yet none are online somehow, I looked through all the galleries linkes so far. I cosplayed as the merchant from Resident Evil 4, I had a trenchcoat and a purple bandana/ cloth around my mouth, chances are I asked you what you were buying or what you were selling, stranger. Thanks!

If you know that I took your picture on Saturday and you don't see it, it may be because I had to use my friends camera for some time and Im waiting to get them off her camera.
I will update when I do load them though.

these are the pics i have so far!! will add more in a few days (wisdom teeth out tomorrow, so i'll be outta commission til the weekend!)

Augh, good luck with the teeth. I just had mine removed last month. The day of the surgery I felt great but the next day was brutal. After that it was okay and 4 days later I was having a photoshoot at my place for my cosplay group =)

Hope you have a speedy recovery. And STAY AWAY FROM STRAWS!!! <3

Also if anyone has any pictures of me as Kadaj on Sunday, I'd be much obliged. <3

Metro was beyond epically amazing, there were so many incredible costumes!

I have a pic of the orginization group on myphotobucket.

Hey guys!

Sadly, I took very few pictures. I have some pictures of the costume competition my boyfriend took from the audience, but they are mostly blurry or sometimes of someone's back. Still, there are a few good ones! I really need to learn to take more pictures. Hopefully AFO I will.

The costumes were absolutely amazing, I was floored. Congrats to everyone that won an award. It was very well deserved. =)

- The Ranma group with male and female Ranma and Akane

I wasn't Freya at MetroCon, I was a Viera Assassin, if you saw me I had HUGE gray bunny ears. I did see her..but I don't think I got a shot. My Freya has a different face made from a mask.

I was wearing dark blue and had a black velvet cape with my bunny ears mounted to a hat covered in dark blue fabric.

Hehe, actually, I was the Freya. ^_^ Everybody backstage was so nice. It made the waiting a lot more bearable to have cool people to talk to. ^_^

If people have pictures of me, I'd like to see them. I could never really find a pose I thought looked okay ^^; I need to look at more pictures to figure out what I was doing wrong, I think.

I don't really have any styled or special shots of people, so I'm just going to keep an eye on the thread for people who are looking for pictures of specific costumes. If you were in the Cosplay Contest, tell me your entry number/costume and I probably have a shot of you on stage ^^ There's people's heads in some of them though >_>;

BTW: I'll be posting my photos by the end of the day as well in MySpace for everyone. Downside is that I forgot to take my camera on Saturday so I only have pictures from Friday and Sunday so pictures are limited.

Hello hello everyone. I'm looking for photos of me and my trio of Resident Evil CVX cosplayers. I myself was Steve Burnside, That Boy was Alfred Ashford (both in and out of Alexia make-up/wig) and Koyasufan was our Claire Redfield. If anyone has photos, they'd be greatly appreciated, as we spent the entire con, more or less, at our art table and didn't get any photos of ourselves or anyone else, really.

Also, for a brief moment Saturday night I was with a Miss Cloud and Wallmarket Aeris as Don Corneo, and photos of that costume are ALWAYS appreciated. We got mobbed for a few seconds before we ran off for a shoot, so I'm sure there's some out there ;3

As a con, Metro was a bust this year. Sales were pitiful and I really took a bad blow, between my car getting flooded out (there goes ~200$) and Flugtag scaring away sales. Better luck next year?

Also, my friends were movie!Al and movie!Ed from FMA on Saturday, and Luke and Jan from Hellsing on Sunday, and I know that at least a couple of people got pictures of them with an Alucard and Seras.

I didn't take as many photos as usual, but I still got quite a few, including some videos of the chess match. I'll get them up online as soon as I can.
I have to go to a funeral friday though, so it won't be before then I know.

Hey everyone. My pics are finally ready. (http://www.myspace.com/brasilianman) Keep in mind that I didn't take any pics on Saturday because absent minded me forgot my camera at the hotel (4 miles away) so I have only Fri and Sun which only has few pics with few cosplayers. Most photos has Bleach cosplayers because of the following reasons:

1. We hung out together during the Bleach photoshoot
2. It made sense to stick together
3. It was too damn heavy to lug that Bankai all day long so it was easy to hang around with the Bleach crowd since we were all over the con
4. By the time I managed to get my camera ready, everyone managed to get away from me and I could chase them down with a snake since everyone else then migrated towards me for my pictures. Hopefully next year it will be a different story.

Hm, well I guess nobody got a photo of me. If anyone happens to see one, lemme know please!! As horrible as I look, I still wanna see what I can improve on my costume. Already have new shoes, arm covers/gloves, and a better mask in the make. I can't view MySpace or Youtube at work, but when I post my photos up for you guys, it'll be a public file that's easily accessible.

Not to mention, I want to work on poses..since it is my first time, I was a bit nervous. >.<

I'll be at both. Chibi-Pa Sat: I'll cosplay for competiton I'll be lovable red pinapple head Renji and then at night I'll change to comfy cosplay like my old Allen Walker. I might need to get a new comfy cosplay to go along in my collection with Allen walker like Kimihiro from xxxHolic. Then Sunday I'll do something I haven't done in a long time and that will be

duh - duh - duh (dramatic music followed by a scream)

dress casual.

Oh, man. Me and the Hobo!PhoenixWright just friggin' loved you to bits. I think I have a photo of you floating on one of my cameras; when I get it developed I'll be sure to send it your way!

:toothy:

Ahahaha.. you guys were fun XD I have a picture of you, I think. ^_^ I'll have to check my stuff. I "missed" a couple of cosplayers I meant to take pictures of, so I have a couple pictures of the ceiling instead of cool people >_>;


I don't know if you remember me, Brasilianman, but I'm excited to see you as Yasumicon. ^_^ I want to see your Alan Walker too, since I've only seen Renji so far.

Hey Freya! I was number 52, the Time Mage. And yea, the backstage was a lot of fun to hang around.

Yay. ^_^ I wish I had better pictures of you.. I'll have to steal some from you >_> <_<

BlankChocobo - You made an amazing Freya, I loved your costume!

GRIFFITH WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Actually, your whole group was amazing! But I looooooove Griffith so much. ^_^ I wish I could have gotten in for a closer look, but I didn't. ~_~ I'll be hunting for pictures of you guys since I only have one from on stage. And my mom only took HALF of griffith in the picture. Dangit, mom, you missed the most important one... >_< Guts is right in the middle, though.

You'll like it. Too bad I retired my arm because it came apart in pieces because it broke in pieces. (water damage) either way I'll look like Allen due to the wig and it'll come out correctly. I just have to do some minor touck-ups on my Hokage Headband but it should be ok.

Feel free to snag. There's a few cosplayers I'm sad I didn't get - like Renji of the mighty Bankai! Sniffle. I'm still happy I got as many pics as I did, though. There was more than one case where I'd snap a pic of a cosplayer and they'd ask for my picture as well. I've never had that happen before, squee!

Yasumi con is at Florida International University, and its free, and its the weekend of August 1-3. I only go on saturday, cause miami scares the crap out of me (i don't know spanish, so when i get lost, its hard to get UNlost) but yeah! Its not the greatest con, but its pretty fun! last year, they had a cute little lolita cafe, that i loved so much! And i usually see alot of ppl from metrocon wearing the same costumes, so its a great chance to exchange myspaces (again!) and get more pix!!!

Don't worry. FIU isn't as easy to get lost like it used to be. I did before but the city made the exits easier to find by name and if you go to the FIU website and compare the campus map to the roads that we'll be travelling to get there, it'll be fairly easy to find.

What was even worse is that during the prejudging of the cosplay contest the drunks were trying to force themselves in. Also the most annoying and overused joke that I hated from them was that they kept putting their heads inside the head of my Bankai and eventually broke one of my teeth of and I had to fix it at the hotel.

Great, glad I didn't meet him. I stand up and defend myself and other people, but it would still hurt me to hear that. But, if I would have heard that from him, he wouldn't not be standing to say it to anyone else. I may be big, but my anger is better. ^_~

Besides, some people don't realize that some people aren't fat just because they eat a lot..there are a lot of over-weight people that are large due to health issues..such as myself :blubber:

Maboroshi said it would take him several weeks to sort through everything, so just be paitent! He's only one genius guy with thousands of pictures to sort through~ ^_^;;;



Oh and a quick comment on that one guy bothering everyone....Friday night I was wearing my KH2 Leon and of course I had my gunblade with me. A bunch of normal people wandering by were really praising me for it (and took pictures with me, they were actually very nice and respectful, I wish more people were like them.) but then he came skipping up to me and grabbed my gunblade without even asking and started taking pictures with it.

He even like threw his giant purse at me and told me I had to hold it for him.

He and his friends were throwing my gunblade around like it was a toy, I thought I was going to die if they broke it. I spent hours on that thing (it is my 2nd prop ever so I spent a ton of time on it @_@)


Usually people at cons are really awesome about being careful about cosplayers and their props, but I think this one guy may need a stern talking to. @_@

As far as I know about con security, they were completely overwhelmed on Saturday because the Flugtagers were allowed in the convention center and Flugtag's own security refused to take responsibility except to make sure they bossed around Metrocon attendees:rolleyes:. They had to start pulling even chess match cast members to be security and it still wasn't enough. I scared a bunch of drunk a-holes out of one of the panels just by shouting at them - I don't think they actually expected us geeks to *care*.

As for that guy, keep circulating his picture. And don't feel afraid when you *do* see con security or even just con staff running around to let them know when people are doing crap like that. If someone is actively stealing props from cosplayers, you'd better believe they'll be all over that. The head of security at Metrocon is a big brute of a guy and he was not someone I wanted coming to throw me out of the convention.

Oh, and as for the "obese" cosplayers? Yea, according to my friends in the crowd, there was a lot of heckling going on from the audience of the heavier cosplayers. Keep in mind, this was an audience of actual anime fans. Apparently they were screaming "DON'T TAKE IT OFF!" at the Chobits Freya. And people wonder why I'm afraid to cosplay. I'm not "obese" or even "fat", but I do not have a perfect body and people like that made me glad I was practically dressed like a nun all weekend.

OKAY! I actually wasn't going to mention this, but i think its all good::::
I had a friend on security at Metrocon, and awesome guy whos just a big ol teddy bear that has to throw his size around on occasioin. ANYWAY, I was talking with my friend on sunday about Miles (thats the annoying guys name) and he told me that next year at metrocon, security will be shown pictures of the guy, and he will be on a watchlist. in other words, if he shows up and is respectful, he's all cool to be there. If he's an ass, then he gets banned PERMANENTLY from metrocon.

Another thing::: If someone at a con ever grabs your cosplay stuff, and is being wreckless with it, or in general, if you're ever out somewhere, and someone takes your things without your permission, you have a right to use force to get it back, cause technically them taking it from you is in fact a type of theft. Furthermore, if they ruin it or damage it, its a form of vandalism, and if they hurt you in any way shape or form, its assault and battery, in which case, you really get to defend yourself.
Once at a con, i was dressed as a chick from Slayers (I was Naga) and some guy came up to me, said "take off your top!" and then he tried to "assist" in the process... lmao, security was right there and saw me kick him so hard, and the whole con heard his shriek in high C!!!!
See, defending yourself pays off! I got to hear a lil opera for my trouble! =^.6=

Another thing::: If someone at a con ever grabs your cosplay stuff, and is being wreckless with it, or in general, if you're ever out somewhere, and someone takes your things without your permission, you have a right to use force to get it back, cause technically them taking it from you is in fact a type of theft. Furthermore, if they ruin it or damage it, its a form of vandalism, and if they hurt you in any way shape or form, its assault and battery, in which case, you really get to defend yourself.
Once at a con, i was dressed as a chick from Slayers (I was Naga) and some guy came up to me, said "take off your top!" and then he tried to "assist" in the process... lmao, security was right there and saw me kick him so hard, and the whole con heard his shriek in high C!!!!
See, defending yourself pays off! I got to hear a lil opera for my trouble! =^.6=

You go girl!!!!!!!!

I should of did that to those red bull morons taking pics of my tush! But since it was my first time at metro...i figured i'd just leave before i choked someone...and got myself in trouble..

But now i know if something like that happens to jab them in the jaw!

Maboroshi said it would take him several weeks to sort through everything, so just be paitent! He's only one genius guy with thousands of pictures to sort through~ ^_^;;;



Oh and a quick comment on that one guy bothering everyone....Friday night I was wearing my KH2 Leon and of course I had my gunblade with me. A bunch of normal people wandering by were really praising me for it (and took pictures with me, they were actually very nice and respectful, I wish more people were like them.) but then he came skipping up to me and grabbed my gunblade without even asking and started taking pictures with it.

He even like threw his giant purse at me and told me I had to hold it for him.

He and his friends were throwing my gunblade around like it was a toy, I thought I was going to die if they broke it. I spent hours on that thing (it is my 2nd prop ever so I spent a ton of time on it @_@)


Usually people at cons are really awesome about being careful about cosplayers and their props, but I think this one guy may need a stern talking to. @_@

Oh Lordy...THAT guy. Yeah, he's a regular at Florida cons. I think he likes to go by the name "Vivian". He just lives to lazy about and loudly make fun of people and be downright rude. Taking someone's props though? That's really going too far, as if he wasn't annoying enough already. He was harassing a friend of mine Friday, and she got con security to take him out but apparently that didn't keep the creep out entirely. I really wish something could be done about that, but like most pests, he'll keep coming back and there's little we can do to stop him. And yeah, it's kinda hard to ignore someone when they grab something you worked hard on, I'm sorry this happened to you. :/ He got in my boyfriend's face once about his Cloud sword, and needless to say I don't think he'll be harassing him again. *grin*

No sorry. What was even worse is that the drunks were purposely staying under the escalators as the cosplayers were going up for any proper views. Eventually the Bleach cosplayers took over that area and made them stay away which worked. Also the Paris Hilton guy/girl/thing kept trying to make it's mark around the escalator so we wouldn't go near it so she/he/it would have some peace and quiet but it was ruined until Jesus made the conga line. I loved it.

hmmm
okay, idea.
I emailed Metrocon about the problems with saturdays rave, and they actually replied, the CEO and the director of entertainment. They were both really appreciative that i wrote to them rather than sitting back and keeping my mouth closed. Oh, and the letters were most definately personalized and weren't some machine.

What we can do to make a difference is this:: email Metro with the name, and picture of the guy, and tell our personal interactions with him, that way metrocon can really be ready for next year.
events@animemetro.com is Roy Harms, the CEO

metrochessdirector@yahoo.com is Nicholas Fazio head of Security

metrocon.hovr.alexcraddock@gmail.com is Alex Craddock director of operations, artists and vendors (i put him in hear cause i saw the guy sitting at one of the vendors booths for a while)

Email them, be respectuful, and they'll respond to you very well, and take action, i'm sure.
Also, at other cons, keep an eye out, and inform security AS SOON as you see something going on. nip it in the butt!

YAAAY JESUS!!!! see, religion and anime do mix! =^.6=
