I'll be there as Konan, I just don't know which day... And idk, I might pull my Deidara cosplay out of the closet too, if anyone wants me too. If nobody could care less though, I'm going to wear my new costumes, and forget about the Deidara one...but it's possible that I'll wear both Konan, and Deidara at some point during NYAF.
Konan is a definite though.

I dunno if I can go, but if I do (which would be reallllly nice), I'm going as Pein: Deva Path, since it's my default cosplay and I barely have time to even upgrade the costume before then. ^ ^ Really hoping I can make it. The Konan in my profile pic is going, too, so...I guess some of the Akatsuki members are gonna have to go Kage Bunshin no Jutsu for NYAF lol.

I hope you can go because your Deva path Pain cosplay look awesome. I hope you bring all your friends. The akatsuki seems to always dominate cosplay for Naruto now. Does anybody know the time and date to meet up or is that up in the air since it's still early.

It's still up in the air. I'm only cosplaying Akatsuki on Friday, so I'd definitely like to have one then. However Naruto is such a large anime there will probably be 2, if not 3, gatherings.

Yeah, I just won't have the byakugan eyes since you can't really see through them and my eyesight sucks as is... but w00t! I am sooo excited. As soon as my Joann's coupons come in the mail, I can go out and buy my fabric.

Lol I was just thinking, I gotta sew in secret again because my mom says no more cons for the rest of the year... it's a good thing NYC's close by so she won't ask why I'm gone for an entire weekend.

DespairedPheonix
06-30-2009, 02:54 PM
haha, touche on the eyes. I'm pretty anal when it comes to cosplay though, I always need to be almost if not 100% accurate. But I draw the lines at not being able to see anything. lol

07-01-2009, 01:18 PM
Hey, thanks, Santose2008! ^ ^ Glad it works for me, since it's the only costume that I have at the moment that I can wear, haha.

Dammit, Ukara07, you win. lol. It's gonna be fun to see ya again! (Though this time, my cloak's staying on, since I'm not willing to sacrifice any more unaware bystanders who happen to walk by- I swung my arm once at aNEXT, and my piercings went flying off and hit people in the face....O_o)

Speaking of eyes....does anyone know if there's a place besides that really expensive FX-site that would sell contacts at least similar to Pein's eyes? I'm going to try and outdo myself for NYAF, since I want my costume to look even better...

santose2008
07-01-2009, 02:26 PM
DragonsFire that is the only place that have them as we speak. They do look pretty cool on FX site but there pretty expensive at the same time. So I would say wait it out until another legit sight have them in.

You can try seeing how much they'd be comissioning them through InsaneLenses.com

Although InsaneLenses are still expensive when it comes to scaleras. My Kisame ones were $300.

Wow. I just found out I can't put anything in my eyes because I'm afraid too. I can't get over that hump. This sucks. Well anyway I just found out I'm defiantly going to NYAF which is why I"m so excited. I had to iron out the details, money issues and now I'm going. I hope I can also explore a little bit of New York as well while I'm there. It's funny I live two hours from New York and never really been up there to site see.

Ooh fun! Naruto photoshoot. I got so hyped up yesterday because not only did my 10" kunai finally arrive in the mail, but I also won the auction for the "shuriken, shuriken pouch, kunai and kunai holster" all for $15!!! So all my details are out of the way and I can focus on the costume. Normally, people do costume first then accessories, but I find that when i do that, I never leave myself enough to make/buy them. So, engines in reverse!

And now I have to find a way to explain why there's a charge for a midnight blue wig on my credit card -_-;

Don't worry, I'm like you as well. I always do backwards and it works out for me. Actually the assessories should always be first because they take the longest to come to your house. So you have the right idea. I hope to see you as Hinata.

Ukara07
07-15-2009, 05:10 PM
I know, right? For MetroCon, i ended up doing the costumes first, and the DAY OF the con, i was still super-glueing Ulquiorra's hilt together. Not this time though. I speed sew, so I am using all of August (after my summer classes end) to make Hinata. And it shouldn't be that hard since it's just a bi-colored sweatshirt and cuffed capris.

I just wish she wore regular ninja sandals like everyone else. Now I gotta make those too -_-;

gao chan
07-16-2009, 12:00 AM
Let's meet in a spot that everyone is going to know about... or most people err since it's still a fairly new convention but the maid cafe is always there so why not next to the maid cafe or the front entrance way next to the big statue before registration. I think That has some pretty good lighting orrrr downstairs next to the food court. Hrmmm.... I'm thinking of doing some great pictures hanging from the walls of the JJC with Paine and Naruto XD

Ukara07

I just found an ebay seller that I could buy my hinata wig for $25 each with free shipping! That is, if I'm ok with Hinata having black hair instead of navy. which I am since it would then be a more versatile wig, and I'm all for recycling ^^

But yeah, a wig for $25? I was JUMPING! Now I just gotta wait for that next paycheck to arrive -_-;

santose2008
07-20-2009, 04:41 AM

OHHHH MY GODDD WHAT A SURPRISE! I get back from Otakon and what do I see? our very own NYAF THREAD!!! yayyy!!! :D

Anyway, I just ran the Naruto shoots at Otakon, and I've come to the decision that I can now accomplish ANYTHING lmao

I'm starting to work on Kisame this weekend, probably at the NY picnic thingie some of us are having in the city. I can't wait! :)

santose2008

for meeting, we're gonna need some place big. I don't remember the JCC all that well, but I do remember it being beautiful XD I'd like to have the gathering no later than 4 on Friday cuz I'm leaving to go to a concert at around 5ish.

idk what time Saturday cuz I'm not gonna be there lol

Are the gatherings on both Friday and Saturday gonna be the same thing? Just two different chances?

DespairedPheonix
07-21-2009, 07:11 AM
Yeah. That's usually how it works.

I may only be able to run the Friday one, unless ppl don't mind me showing up as a non-naruto character and run the Saturday one too.

Or if someone else wants to run it, that's cool too :D

Ukara07
07-21-2009, 08:57 AM
Meep! Of COURSE we wouldn't mind having you in a non-Naruto costume! In FL, when we did our Bleach photoshoot, it was organized by a guy who was from a different series as well.

We still love you! (I'm a little hung up on the meds that the docs gave me for my virus, don't mind the insanity ^^)

santose2008
07-21-2009, 09:33 AM
BeautifulSpirit we're not going to care if you show up as somebody else for the Saturday photoshoot. Since you handled the Otakon one I feel safe if you run both photoshoots. I never have been to JCC so I'm taking my queue from you since you been there at least once before. I think 4pm is perfect timing for me.

Also, what concert is around 5pm? Is that at the JCC or somewhere else? I'm just curious.

Also, I heard Otakon was crazy mad fun. Did you take many pictures BeautifulSpirit? If you did, can we see some. I feel depressed that I couldn't go but more determined to fulfill the mission to go next year. I heard Otakon is supposed to be July 30, 31 and August 1, 2010. I will be there. I hope my driving abilities are ready to go. I want to drive down there. It should be fun. However, I heard it's best to stay at a hotel for Thursday-Sunday at least to not get caught up in the lines in grabbing your badges and to see more awesome cosplayers.

Well, this is actually my first NYAF, however I know the JCC very well. I can't count how many times I've been to that place XD [My dad was a big car/boat show person. And I love the technology expo that goes on there :D]

The concert is actually really far from the JCC, it's a KMFDM concert. It starts at 8 which is why I need to get outta the JCC by 5, cuz I don't think showing up to KMFDM with a blue face and latex gills would be really attractive XD

As for the Otakon info, that is all true. It's July 30-August 1. I drive down EVERY year. I LOVE driving so it doesn't bother me much.

It IS VERY TRUE that it's best to stay Thursday-Sunday, for some it's even better to stay Thursday-Monday, which I think is what my friends and I are doing this year.

Otakon is definitely a con everyone should go to at least once. Some people hate Otakon, but it's still an experience I think all Otaku's and cosplayers should enjoy.

And I got SO many pictures, they're all mainly of the Naruto gathering tho XD

http://s31.photobucket.com/albums/c394/_Anchi_/OtakonConPics/

I was the Gaara with the huge gourd, and the 6th Hokage Naruto.


@Stripper: The rooms are 108/person right now, but I know more of my friends wanna come to NYAF so that number may go down relatively fast. XD

EDIT:
Wow I forgot to actually talk about NYAF's gathering XD

Okay so we'll have 4PM on Friday, and how about something a bit earlier, maybe 2PM on Saturday?

As for a meeting place, if I remember correctly there's kind of a long corridorlooking thing on the main floor that's really pretty? >.> I was also thinking maybe we could do the shoot outside, however then we have to deal with all the city people. Idk if anyone ACTUALLY wants to deal with that.

DespairedPheonix
07-21-2009, 11:06 AM
Andddd, I've editted the first page with a cosplayers list and a photoshoot setlist. That setlist is the same one I used for Otakon, if anyone wants to add anything lemme know.

The pairings is gonna be something new though, that people have suggested for Ota next year.

So look over the cosplayers list and lemme know if you guys want me to change anything/if anything has changed with your cosplay or plans since you last posted :)

ok so since I really dont remember WHERE that corridor is, I think that what gao chan said, that statue by registration would be our best bet. I think people would get confused with the maid cafe.

I think that's how I'll plan it. Saturday and Friday we meet at the big statue at the front entrance by Registration. Friday at 4 and Saturday at 2, is everyone in agreement?

Omg, you're birthday is this month too beautiful Spirit? Hah hah, I tried conning my mom into getting me a serger for my birthday (next week ^^) but alas, the notion was turned down. All this things I needs are so 'spensive! I'm like, "Hey, y'all wanna know what to get for my birthday? Choose something from my list: serger, dressform, wigs, hefty giftcard to Joann's."

Speaking of Akatsuki killing people...when I went to Otakon as Gaara, there was a huge Akatsuki group there that followed me for a good 15 minutes [I think we were going to the same place.] It was pretty funny, and every once in a while I'd turn to them and say "Don't kill me." with this serious voice and I don't think they actually understood why I was saying it o.o

ZFandKILover- I dunno if it's just coincidence or what, but Bleach people really do tend to do that a lot, haha. Maybe we Naruto cosplayers are just too cool for them to resist? ^^

Oh, speaking of Bleach- I don't know how late I'll be to the Saturday shoot- I'm trying to make it to both the Friday and Sat ones in my Pein cosplay, but I have a Bleach shoot only an hour before the Naruto one on Saturday...and getting on my Pein cosplay is a huge, well, PAIN. It usually takes at least 45 min to get on, and I don't know how early I can leave the Bleach shoot (damn Bleach people- can't they schedule another one on a different day or something???). I'm trying to get it changed to either earlier or after the Naruto shoot, but the Bleach subforum is devoid of life these days... Anyone have any thoughts on all of this? :confused:

I was just wondering... does anybody know of someone (preferably a really good cosplayer)who will be cosplaying as Pein on Saturday? Or I guess even Friday if not Saturday. This one guy I know was supposed to, but now he's not ever cosplaying again, so I'm kinda screwed right now.

Aw, thanks, Moonsong! (Just got back on the forums- been off for a day or two going school shopping....uck ><) Got my new wig finished- unless I dye it a darker shade-, so I won't be having that clown-hair for NYAF. That thing made my head look like it was on fire... Xo

Aurora Maryte
08-23-2009, 02:09 PM
Lol, I should have read through all of the pages.... Sorry about that.

But yeah, I agree, you are pretty damn amazing Dragonsfire.
If you aren't super busy, I am looking for someone to do a private photoshoot with me that I'm having done.... and true, I could just have the photographer take photos of me, but it adds so much more to it when there are other characters from the series in some of the photos. So many more poses can be done....
Lol, and by 'more poses', don't worry, I don't mean anything sketchy. I seriously just wanted somone else in my photoshoot, and someone who actually looked like Pein, or whoever it was they were trying to portray because I'm picky about stuff like that since it's a private shoot, and when my friend realized he couldn't afford cosplay for quite some time now..well, he has they outfit, just couldn't afford tickets and stuff... then I thought I was screwed.

But then again, you will probably be busy, so if you can't, you can't. It's cool either way.

Dragonsfire867
08-23-2009, 05:29 PM
Sure- I'm totally up for a private shoot ^^. I'm already planning on a mini-one with one of my friends who's also doing Konan, so another is totally fine with me- I'll have some practice posing with Konans XD. (Plus, they're fun!)
Just to let ya know, my mini-shoot is probably gonna be right after the main one on Sat, and then I have a Bleach photoshoot at 4:00, but if needbe I can get right back in my Pein cosplay afterwards. What day/time do you have in mind?

Aurora Maryte
08-24-2009, 12:32 AM
I'm not sure yet if it should be Friday or Saturday... it all depends on when my little brother and sister can go and cosplay from Avatar with me for that shoot. Right now my mother is trying to figure out whether or not it's worth it for them to go on Friday, since they have to be in school. I WANT to cosplay with them Friday though, so I can wear my Naruto cosplay on Saturday, since I look the best as Konan.

It definitely won't be Sunday, and it definitely will be in the evening.
Do you have a preference as to the day?...

Dragonsfire867
08-24-2009, 12:45 AM
Ummm, Friday would almost definitely be better (I'm guaranteed to be in Pein-mode and not in Bleach cosplay then ^^). Friday's also much more open for me, since my other shoot isn't then. But again, whatever works best for you, since you're pretty much in charge of the shoot. I'm sure I could do later on Saturday, even though the changing into Pein is...well, painfully long lol. *Sorry, just couldn't resist cracking that one XD*

I know how you feel, but I most definitely am going to get a job in the bio department on campus. I've been unemployed since last December and it's been a pain in the butt having no money. If you're in college, look to see if they have any job openings on campus. I'm not sure if its the same everywhere, but here, you pretty much set your own hours and work whenever you have free time, so its awesome. ^^

I hope you get your Hidan scythe all done! Hidan is awesome, I'll have to take many pictures. I finished with all the rose accessories for Konan tonight, though I'm not sure if I bought enough. XD

Having money is fun. But if your in college getting a job on campus and you want to see your money in your own hands, make sure they don't try to add it to your college book cost, tuition or something like that. I know they do that sometimes if you don't request that or you agree to it without understaning what they just told you.

But just make sure if you get a job, do all your homework before head, like a week when they give out that syllabus for reading and homework assignments as the semester go. Also, do 20hr max for working or you will feel like your brain is about to explode. I did over 20hr before and I was sleeping a lot in classes because my body needed more sleep. Good luck this year.

Oh no, I'm sorry Ukara! I really, really hate it when people do that. While you can argue that you shouldn't rely on people, I think one should be able to rely on their friends! If they say they're going to do something, they should do it, and if they can't, they could at least give you the courtesy of telling you instead of dropping off the face of the earth.

This happened to me last year, and I was unable to attend Anime Boston because my friend, who was supposed to be my ride/room/cosplay buddy stopped talking to me for like MONTHS, and then like a before the con, she told me she couldn't go. I was like, 'Gee thanks for telling me NOW so I have little chance of finding a ride/room/money to attend." but the awful thing is that she lied, and went without me! I wish people could be a little more considerate.

Nothing really happens on Thursdays. Just a bunch of hotel hang outs and such, some people go to clubs or bars in the local area. Nothing really cosplay/convention related though.QUOTE]

IS there anything maybe for people under 18?

Well, great news.
The lady cut my hair unevenly so that I can't style my hair for Sasuke.

It's perfect for Xion's hair (KH) but it's.. Ugh.

Yeah, I even though I have my hair dyed black, I have black wigs and extensions so I don't have to worry about styling my hair.

And the wigs that are pink, green, blonde, and red are just for others ^^

So good news people. Due to BeautifulSpirit's beautiful generosity, I now have a place to crash for NYAF *dances around merrily* and SHALL be there in three weeks!

@KunaiKandies: Omg, I hate when people butcher my hair. I'm really sorry you can't be Sasuke. D: I remember when I was younger, the hairdresser cut my hair so short and I looked like a boy. I cried for days. XD

Hope your uncle picks up too, Obsessed. The hotels in NYC are crazy expensive, which is why I'm only going one day. =/

Ditto on what Moonsong said about your uncle, Obsessed. Crossing my fingers it works out for you!

And yeah, Moonsong- the workload is a bit ridiculous this year....I think it's practically the same for everyone in that aspect DX. It just seems that some people are better at completing their work than others... (I'm in the bad-at-finishing-work category....and I've got 5 1/2 classes, not including my non-credit courses that I still have work for...FUN.)

Aaaand, as an added note...I'm not gonna let my club stop me- one of my friends and I are going to head down a day early and stay with her cousin, so I still get to be there on Friday XD (hopefully, at least, lol).

I feel like it's a stupid decision I'll regret later, because with the way things are going, I probably won't have the wings done by that Friday... but BeautifulSpirit, put me down for Friday for Konan.
...My family has a tendency to do things last minute- like when my sister started her Ty Lee cosplay for AnimeNEXT 3 days before, and then kept me up until 6am the Thursday and Friday nights leading up to the convention to finish it....so idk, I might be screwing myself by taking away an extra night or two of staying up to finish it... but, just list me for Friday. It seems to work best for everyone else that way, and hopefully it works out for me too. :)


And @Obsessed- I really hope he answers too... But there's a few weeks still, I'm sure if your father calls every day, he's bound to get him eventually, so don't worry just yet. It'll all work out. :)

Also, I missed this comment:


IS there anything maybe for people under 18?

Sorry I missed your comment:

Con related? No. Cosplay related? Many people do cosplay on Thursday and walk around the city for the lulz. I know someones planning a meet up at Dave and Busters, but we're not sure on the age limit as of late. I will update with more information on that once I receive it. But realize, you are in the city. There's tons to do. Restaurants, time square, Broadway. The Village. Shopping [especially window shopping!] All of which are fun to just roam for a very long time. :)

Anime Boston is really awesome. Personally, I've never had an issue there with anyone being critical of me (and my cosplays were pretty bad the first 2 years that I went.)

Every city is boring if you live in it. I see tourist all the time in philly and they go crazy. I don't see the big deal but I would be just like them when I vist New York for the second time. The first time doesn't count because I went to the UN for a class trip and that's it. I didn't explore anything else. I will see more of New York when NYAF comes around next week. I'm excited.

As for Anime Boston for 2011, I have to scratch it because now my friends want to go to Anime Expo 2011. So I'm saving my money up for that and Otakon which leaves Anime Boston out for that year if I still want to make it too Otakon. So 2010 and 2011 my conventions are already packed so far to attend. Wow, and it's still 2009.:)
