A friend of mine is trying to drag me out there... Problem is, I don't know Tucson/Phoenix area that well...other than the low cost of living, heat, and my favorite college basketball team out there(GO 'CATS!). XD Are they any Arizona conventions or points of interest for the anime/videogame-minded?

Hey. I have actually seen you at a few of the Atomic Comic events. I complimented you on your Alichino costume once. I cosplay, but I am still pretty new to it. I don't know many people who cosplay yet, so if you want to talk sometime let me know. ^^

No Arizona will forever be sad and cosplay club less. There really aren't enough of us (not even here in Tempe at the ASU campus). However there is a whole new young generation that's starting to cosplay so maybe one day.......... one day..............

Wasn't Anizona sponsored by several local Anime Clubs and organizations? ^^

Honey Bunny
03-30-2005, 03:06 PM
Most of Anizona was sponsered by Atomic Comics, our local anime dictatorship. As for independant cosplay orginzations and groups we have next to none! We have a huge fan base, just not a lot of willing cosplayers.

Hi, I'm Morgan and I'm a newbie to cosplaying, but I'm working hard and doing pretty good. I've only started on my costumes. I'm working on Hortaru(.Hack//Legend of the Twilight) and Misha(Pita Ten). I could use some advise on making costumes ^_^; but I really want some Cosplaying friends who live in AZ.

I live in tucson(really marana) but I think most people would be from phoenix though.... But are you going to the Phoenix Anime fest? I havn't done a real cosplay, but I have cosplayed. If I can go the fest in phoenix, I'm going as Deidara or an ANBU from naruto.

Trust me I know how oyu feel...I can't find anyone attending the convention who is going as KH charcaters...and well I am in a hopeless position considering I really wanna find a KH2 cosplay group since I am going as Riku..

SycoTik
09-17-2006, 09:08 PM
I think it's just a matter of being persistent with folks, I'm sure there are plenty of Arizonians. I wish there was a search feature that I can just browse and find people in my area instead of posting a thread hoping folks respond. BTW, Kingdom Hearts is a great game :rockon:

Sad_Riku
09-17-2006, 09:15 PM
Yeah I agree. If you plan on attending as a kh2 character..let me know. ^^

SycoTik
09-17-2006, 09:19 PM
I shall definately let ya know, just have to research on the 2nd one and maybe the first cuz it's been awhile since I played KH and I've yet to play KH2

I'm not too sure, I just want to be able to find some people I can hang around with since I have no friends out here. BUT if I had to be in a group I'd like it to either be cosplayers for Naruto, I'll be a hidden mist ninja or Cowboy Bebop, I'll play Vicious since it seems many folks think I would look good as him but Im kinda chubby :(

Hola, todos ustedes! So great to know I'm not all alone in PAF-ing! :angel:

I'll only be there on the 3rd, but if you see a Yamanaka Ino running around after a tall Sasuke or fighting with a blonde-with-pink-highlights Sakura, or just standing off in the corner or practicing karate or something...glomp at will! :toothy: :angel2:

((It appears that we'll have almost the whole Naruto cast at this rate! Woohoo!))

hmmmmmmmmmm, this maybe true. I seem to be the only guy in it as well.......very hmmmmmm indeed. I'm not sure yet if I'm gonna go as my own Naruto created character or as Itachi since I've been given a suggestion to look like him. I don't mind really cuz he is one of my fav characters on the show. I might go as Kabuto or Kakashi, who knows. I'm 5'7" so maybe I shouldn't :(

No, you won't be the only guy cosplaying Naruto, I can guarentee (I can never spell that right :untrust: ) it because I have a guy friend who'll be cosplaying Uchiha Sasuke. If we meet up we'll have to cause mass havoc and destruction at PAF! :rockon:

Anyway, SycoTik, you should cosplay what you want. Unless you happen to be a superfamous actor or something, it really doesn't matter what you wear as long as you like it and are comfortable in it. Anyone who cares enough to go out of their way to dislike it isn't worth your time. (Lord, I sound like Dear Abby!)

lol, Im not a superfamous actor but vow to be a super famous director someday ^_^
Me thinks I will play Uchiha Itachi then for this years PAF, this will be my very first anime convention so I'm looking forward to it. Plus I'm bring a camara to film all this, it will be easy to hide it under my costume so not to totally look touristee ^^ I love mass havoc and destruction on a hot convention day! \m/ :rockon: \m/ Seeing as though it happens in december, it gives me time to purchase the items needed to make myself Itachi, since I can't sew for crap :( I need to find contact lenses for his sharingan, wonder where I can find it....... :chatah:

WOW, never heard of those places other than Tucson. Seems you have alot of traveling to do there. Surprise is a growing city so I wouldn't call it small. You familar with Sun City, Peoria, Glendale and Avodale? They neighbor it pretty closely. I go to school online so I dont have to worry bout driving back and forth for that but I do have to worry to drive to do alot of other things that tend to physically and mentally drain me at times.

Well the next one is in December, the Phoenix Anime Festival. It shall be my first cons I attend. I'm either going as Itachi Uchiha or (since I've recently watch the series of Fruits Basket) Shigure Sohma, he is one of my favorite characters on the show.

If there are others in the area who are interested I would be happy to host a monthly get together to work on projects or just to watch anime and hang out. As I said before I live in Peoria, I am an adult, and I have a house we can do this at. We may also be able to get space from a neutral location, the South West costume guild meets at bookmanís once a month for a chat and stitch. I have no problem with people under 18 as long as your parents give you writen permisions.

Well I just moved into my house so things are still a bit unorganized. But how about we shoot for something in early December? Reach out to anyone else you know it the area and see if they would be interested. I think if its going to be more then 5 or 6 people we might want to see about someplace like Bookmans. I'll check out the price to rent the back room.

Well I just found out that Bookmans is free! You just have to schedual way in advance. So if anyone else in the greater Phoenix area wants to get together for anime and a stitch session let me know. PM me preferably.

Caelendil
11-01-2007, 07:29 PM
Being relatively new to cosplay, I'm not exactly sure what my strengths and weaknesses are. I have yet to try styling my wig for Axel. I seem to be relatively decent when it comes to pattern modifications. I modified a woman's coat to make it into an Organization XIII coat. I have a very nice sewing machine (goes through anything with standard needles with ease), and I've become pretty adept at using it.

I'm in Arizona but the major cosplay event in arizona has already passed and that was Saboten-Con. Of course there are more event's going on Like Anime Tucon in July and KikiCon in november but I think saboten-con was the biggest one in Arizona. I won't be going to Anime TuCon though, it is too far from me and the Anime Expo which I am going to in LA is much more worth it.

06-08-2008, 04:28 PM
Wait, we have one big con? That's news to me. j/k

What was the attendance on Saboten anyways? Less than 2000 right? I guess that counts.

Despite being forced to do all our fabric shopping at JoAnn's there's a few of us out there. One of my friends is trying to build the AZ cosplay community a little more with an all-ages cosplay club for idea and skill sharing (not a competition group). Check out http://www.sunacosu.com (http://www.sunacosu.com/) We have hands on meetings, group work shops and a decent knowledge-base amongst the membership so far.

Wait, we have one big con? That's news to me. j/k

What was the attendance on Saboten anyways? Less than 2000 right? I guess that counts.

Despite being forced to do all our fabric shopping at JoAnn's there's a few of us out there. One of my friends is trying to build the AZ cosplay community a little more with an all-ages cosplay club for idea and skill sharing (not a competition group). Check out http://www.sunacosu.com (http://www.sunacosu.com/) We have hands on meetings, group work shops and a decent knowledge-base amongst the membership so far.

Lol, yeah, there wasn't a coleseums worth of people at saboten-con but there were enough people for me to have a 4 part video on youtube. My 1st convention was less than 100 people, but it was a good starter. I won't be able to join your cosplay club though :( I have too much on my plate already. I am in 3 different organizations and I do a lot of video work, so I am already pretty restless. I will check out your site after the anime expo is over. I have a ton of things to coordinate before that. If you want you can check out my videos on youtube my site is www.youtube.com/cosplayersalbum

*shifty eyes* I live in AZ...Phoenix to be precise. >_> But I haven't cosplayed yet. I only JUST today convinced my mother to let me after years of begging. I know. Amazing. XD Well I'm REALLY excited about it. LOL. Psh~So anyway. I am working on an Axel cosplay right now. :D Woo!

Good luck, you will enjoy it. I only was planning on cosplaying for one event but I have been at 2 already and going to another one this weekend, but that is the Phoenix GameCon. More about games than cosplay but atleast there is a cosplay masquerade. There are more conventions going on in arizona this year, that are not posted if you want to know more, you should also check out http://www.arizonahp.org/

Hey, Raijin, I recognize you from Saboten! That's fine, I just thought I'd put it out there because the events are pretty much open to anyone so I'd keep checking back to see if there's going to be demos of stuff you might want to learn about. You never know when you might need some hands-on help.

Have you tried SAS on the corner of Apache and McClintock? They have a lot of great fabric stuff there on the cheap.

In response to looking for Arizona cosplayers: yo. :rockon: I missed Saboten for Fanime, though.

I just got back from Dallas, and even they have a small fabric district. its about a dozen warehouses right next to each other carrying everything from outlet upholstery fabric (where velvet floral prints go to die...) to places with most stuff you could want, just not a lot of the high end stuff. Phoenix confuses me. Its a huge metropolitan area but so lacking in cultural aspects of even smaller areas.

wait, all of them died, when?? The hancock on university in mesa was fine just before saboten, don't tell me it has died while I was on vacation!!!! NOOOOOO!! I'm gonna go over tomarrow and see if its still there. I knew I should have gone before I left.

Anyway, back on topic
there are actually plenty of cosplayers in arizona (alot of us seem to have no web presence though). We have plenty of cosplay events around, PCC, Saboten, Phoenix Con Games, Anizona (or not), anime tucon, matsuri festival, and other random things pop up all the time.
We are slowly losing events though, like PAF and mabey Anizona, and there is probably little hope for a return of the Otaku University Conference.

Only big problem with cosplaying in arizona is finding materials, Christophe had a running joke at Saboten about how he was going to print out a list of places to buy cosplay materials to pass out at his panel, but he coulden't find any in our stupid state.

rant over.

Another Arizona cosplayer here - I'm in north-western Peoria, practically out in Sun City. Boy, do I ever feel the pain of having nowhere but JoAnn to shop at! D= I do occasionally take the trip out to the SAS at 19th and Peoria and have dropped by the Hobby Lobby at I-10 and the 101 once or twice, but seeing as how both are 40+ mile round-trips and given the cost of gas, I don't go very often.

As for me, I'm a bit older (28) and usually focus my time and money on books and video games and one or two BIG cons (Dragon*Con is, by far, my favorite con) instead of anime and manga and lots of smaller anime cons. What few anime and manga series I am familiar with tend to be at least a decade old, and I tend to get blank looks when talking to the younger fans. I don't do near as much sewing as I would like as my job eats up most of my time. Not knowing other people who cosplay makes it difficult to get motivated even when I DO have time.

However, the SunaCosu group looks really interesting! I can't make it to the June meeting (today... have to work. stupid work!), but maybe I can clear my schedule for the July or August get-togethers. It would be nice to meet other people and get back into the swing of costuming. =D

Feawen - Yes, I am sorry to inform you that the Mesa Hancocks is closing! =( Get your bargains while you still can! Well...if 40-50% off is a bargain to you lol. They should mark it down more; that's coupon price. Then I heard from a friend in Flag their's is closing too. Last time I talked to Kisa there were still a couple in Tucson.

That seems to be an ongoing problem, with conventions only being one year. Otaku University and Phoenix Animefest will likely never return. Anime TuCon looks iffy. SabotenCon will return, and Phoenix ComiCon is expanding every year! ^_^ Phoenix ConGames is adding more costume and anime programming as well as other conventions, especially as SunaCosu gets more involvement. =D

On a more serious note, do you think Hancocks has finally shut things down in Mesa? Cause if not I am going to be running for the border friday afternoon to see what I can get.

It's uppose to be a secret but I am going to the samurai comics PJ thing sept. 13 which is this saturday. It's the samurai comics on 107th ave and indian school, or something like that.

I also am hearing that ToyBox will be performing and I will also be performing in clubs pretty soon, but I doubt that I will be leaving Cosplay behind, I love it too much.
Oh, and I will be hanging out with the Zelda team from saboten-con. We have all been planning a lot of video work together so I have a lot in the works.

As for Sabotencon (which will take place in October), there I plan to attend the whole convention.


Oh, yes, I'm one of the cosplayers who hails from Tucson. It seems like Phoenix is where a lot of the action is... though last year we had a nice little event called AnimeTucon. Hopefully it will return this year.
