Here we are, another con gone.

Picture time!

Discussion wise, the con was really great this year. I had fun helping out all three days. The only thing that was kinda sketchy was communication with the con staff - my AMV was never received and there were some complications with tables at the café, but no con goes completely perfectly. Masquerade was great and Para Para was absolutely awesome. And of course, the Character Café....I still have that guest list. :D

Discussion / Pictures Thread, let's go!

I can't believe another year has come and gone. Sorry to hear about your AGMV getting lost. Can't wait to see some of the great pix that I am sure were taken during the con.

Hope you found some great items in the Dealers Hall as well.

The Dealer's Hall was great! I just wish the goth-loli booth from last year had been there. XD I was so ready to go loli-maid. :3

Greetings All!

I attended Sat., only took a few pictures, still too shy to ask people! They are located at my gallery here:

http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/127647/

I will upload higher res photos to my pbase website soon..

I also managed to shoot high def (720p) videos of all the masquerade performances. I'm more of a photographer, and this was my first time shooting video, so I apologize in advance for the quality. The lens I brought was too long for the auditorium, and so I couldn't get the entire stage in the frame unfortunately :(

the gallery is here:

http://vimeo.com/album/32863

they only allow 500megs of upload a week, and so I will get the second half uploaded next week. thanks for looking!

Hey everyone! I loved this year's MikomiCon! I had a lot of fun hanging out with everyone! It's rare at a convention that I actually get to sit down and talk to people.

Shout Outs:

To everyone I met who I didn't get contact info from, feel free to PM me. (on Saturday I was wearing the costume in my avatar -- on Friday I was Maya from PW, on Sunday I was Asuka from Evangelion).

To the Loveless Skit at the Masquerade -- I really enjoyed your skit but I didn't get a chance to go up to you and tell you. :( Sorry! Thought your skit was really nice though!

To whoever organized the dancing on Sunday -- that was one of my favorite parts of the convention! We need more random dancing! :D

And to Hazel Chaz -- for all the gummy worms. :x

Had a great time! :D I loved the AMGV contest, Karaoke, and hanging out~! :3

Hey! You were the guy we met in Karaoke on Sunday! I'm sorry we didn't get a proper chance to say goodbye! Tell your girlfriend thanks for the pictures again! :D (P.S. Singing "Hey Ya!" was pretty hilarious. I don't want to ever "shake it" again for as long as I live. >.>)

yah, i have all the performances. vimeo only allows 500 megs per week of uploads, and so I was only able to upload the first half of the masquerade. I will upload the second half this weekend once they reset the quota!

The con was pretty good for my first time--I only went on Saturday.

I had tons of fun~

Thanks to all the peoples that made Mikomicon possible~

I didn't take any pictuars. Sorry! ><;

edo_oniichan
09-22-2008, 10:02 PM
Hey Sting, why don't you try posting them to YouTube? :D If it's too big, try compressing it to a lower quality.

Do you have the video from between performances too? Kyle's bits were entertaining. (Mine were not, though it'd be funny to see me running back and forth like a maniac.)

My Mikomicon 2008 Cosplay Pictures (http://epii.info/anime/2008_Mikomicon/) are up.
I was only there Saturday, dressed as Tamaki (waiter uniform) from Ouran. Didn't expect much, but had a good time overall. I wish I went more days / could spend more time.

I took pictures of all the Masq skits. But not all of them turned out acceptably.

I am curious to know who is who (for the individual photos, I'll update the pictures with the cosplayer's alias), and to fill in the missing character names.

xD I loved the con too! >< Wish I would've had my Nero cosplay there on Saturday, but I enjoyed my time with all my friends who invited me and hung out with me! =D Special thanks for the Cloud, Zack, Aerith and their friends for giving me a great time on Saturday! xD And...lulz, I found the Dennys AFTER I left the con that day, it was all the way straight down Reseda, BEFORE we made the first U turn. xD!! But Jack in the Box was fun! :3

This was my first MikomiCon and I had so much fun! (( Besides the battle damage from the sumo wrestling and the nasty sunburn. )) I really enjoyed the bands that played and the nice hang out envirornment! The masq was totally fun and the Kiwi that was next to us as the "pre-show" preformance was fun! (( It wasn't really a pre-show, but it definitely was for my group~ )) I really wish that there had been more people though, but it's still growing and I'm excited for next year! I sadly have no photos because... well I gave Matt all my batteries and failed to get pictures when I actually HAD batteries. I tend to do that...

To ALL masquerade participants:

I would once again like to thank all of you who participated in this year's Mikomicon Masquerade. It was an honor to have such great talent be part of the masquerade. I hope to see you all again next year. Congratulations are also in order to the staff and volunteers for all of your hard work. Without your help, the show would not have gone as smoothly as it did. I'd also like to thank the panel of judges we had this year. Thank you for taking the time to help out with selecting the winners.

So, On behalf of the Masq. Dept. I again thank you for making this year's Mikomicon Masquerade another great success. Hope to see you all again next year.

Joel C.
Masq. Coordinator.

Hey everyone, ended up going to Mikomi con even though I didn't think I was going. Fun when that happens.

To all those who complemented my house of cards, thanks.

I spent tons of time in the game room, so if you didn't see much of me, that's why.

Thanks to all who voted for my AMVs, I got runner up best technical for Last Regret (my experimental video, yay).

My internet has been bad, so picutres will take time to put up, sorry.

Pretty Sammy are you the Asuka that Tama-chan was flirting with? If so, it was cool to meet you.

Most of my pictures are from day 3, but that aside, good times over all.
Some of the night shots came out bad, so I lost several pictures.
Finally, beware of Tama-chan.

Ahhh! This was my very first mikomicon and lemme tell you, it didn't let me down one bit! =D
I was there on Day 2 as CC (Code Geass) and Day 3 as Maria Kurenai (Vampire Knight). I'm pretty sure me and my Code Geass group got our pictures taken right when we got out of the bathroom. xD So if you guys have pics of us, please lemme know! :3 Thanks! =D
I can't wait for next year! =D

A record for me (thanks to being at home with a cold on Monday and Tuesday), I got the MikomiCon pictures up on my site already. I ended up with 3,162 of them. They are at:

http://jerrysphotos.net/2008/mk08/index.html

As usual with me, go ahead and download any of them you want, and post them on your own site. It would be nice if you credit me, but it is not necessary.

Hello, due to the stuff happened in my family side plus the job, I was there at Mikomi Con on late Saturday night and Sunday day time only. Very very very short con visit, but still I had such a great time so, I'll be back next year!!
Thank you for having such a cozy con!!

Takeriya_Hagi was
Abel Nightroad (Empire version) on Saturday+ masq. time.

And him and I were Cain and Abel (regular dangling crosses look)

If some one took photos please let us know.


And....
I only took 2 cosplayers' photo besides my friend's group...very embarrasing but here is the link in case they can find their photos!!
Thank you for posing for my cam!!

to the people from the Death Note skit (the "alternate ending" one): I loved your skit!! Whoever cosplayed Light was hilarious. And Mikami too. I hope you guys won something!

...and to the people who bothered to come to the artist alley: THANKS. we were suffering over there in the hot sun so thanks for stopping by. I was the one selling (mostly) pins with 2 other girls...we cosplayed Tifa, Yuffie, and Aeris for Friday and Sunday, and sorta cosplayed Naruto and Gaara for Saturday (though not very well). :)

ah, I wonder what was going on around the rest of the con as I was trapped behind that table holding a parasol.. and of course the artist alley got moved indoors the day we decided not to sell.. -___-

I know it's a weak try to get my pictures since no one knew what my cosplay was, but I cosplayed on Friday as Nurse Ruriko from Pure Trance. Everyone probably just thought I was some random slutty nurse...WELL I WASN'T!!! Anyway, only two people actually asked me for my picture, and they were on camera phones >.<
But I kept turning around and people were taking sneaky pictures!!
Anyway, that was my first try at cosplaying, so if you took a sneaky picture, please gimme.
By the way, for everyone that came to the Banzai Arcade, I hope you guys had fun!!!

It's a lot of masquerade and music stuff. There's some cosplay photoshoots that I did that aren't up yet. I'm going to put those in a magazine-style pdf format. I'm gonna try to crank that out as fast as I can, but it might still be a few weeks for that.

I'm looking for a photo of me and my now current boyfriend. It was a group photo. He was a pirate with an extremely fancy hat, I was a CSUN student (my shirt has CSUN in gray and is black), there should be a girl taller than me to my right and some other people. Anyone have it even if it's blurry? I'm begging here!
