09-17-2009, 09:53 AM
I sent you another pm Heather!

I will try to convince Mandy to wear Kyo (I have a wig I can borrow from a friend) and maybe convince Taryn to wear Haru. They will be much more inclined to do it if they don't have to dig out old costumes that may or may not exist anymore. ^_^

09-17-2009, 11:23 AM
I talked to Mandy, she said she is cool with wearing Kyo so long as she can get off work, she is fairly certain she will have to work most weekends in october cause of all the events they have going on that month. Taryn will do it so long as she can get down here from Richmond, but we will have to check to see if she can fit into Haru...since it was made for someone without boobs, I dunno if it will fit, even WITH the binding. O.o

09-17-2009, 11:30 AM
lol... actually Haru was made for Josh... it has a zipper in the front of the shirt so he could do the Chest exposure thing... what a dork...lol.. OMG Mandy as Kyo... how freakin Awesome!!!!! hope she doesnt mind a glomp now and again (such a year of the cat fan..lol...) Ok so het with both of them and have them work out the best time I can do it whenever as long as its not during normal work hours. so any day during the week or weekend is cool. we can work off of their decision!
Awesome now im getting excited for the Sohma Family!!!! YAY

09-17-2009, 11:41 AM
the wig shop at pembroke mall is awesome! you could probably get a good wig there.....

09-17-2009, 12:09 PM
I actually am going to get one from ebay. I eventually wanted to do a Melissa Mao costume, and she and Akito have the same hair....^_^

I'm prolly getting this one:
http://cgi.ebay.com/C214-black-straight-short-medium-bang-wig-Free-Ship_W0QQitemZ310167649068QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_CS A_MWA_Wigs_Extensions?hash=item48376ebb2c&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

It only needs minimal styling/trimming.

09-17-2009, 12:34 PM
I use Milanoo (they keep putting a spam ban on the link to the website..lol) ! they are really good!

09-17-2009, 08:45 PM
I will be there~!
As I said in the PM you sent me ^^
I have a friend who'd be willing to go as Hana.

09-18-2009, 08:05 AM
awesome! hopefully your Yuki will show up to!

09-18-2009, 08:05 AM
this will be epic if we can get all the characters!!!!!!!

09-18-2009, 08:53 AM
Yay! Petitangel1095 makes a great Tohru! ^_^

09-18-2009, 04:33 PM
@theonlyangel;I hope so as well! DD':
The first time she tried to order it, it never came in, so second time's the charm?

@livingdeadgirl; Aw, thank you so much! x33

Oh! My other friend (Tough Noodles) said she'd go as Kisa. :]
And you guys can just call me Angel. 'Tis my name~

09-18-2009, 06:52 PM
Is your friend a creeker, Heather? I recognize that name. o.O

09-18-2009, 06:56 PM
And oh man...I just realized for Akito...there is going to be 'side-boob' binding. >_<

09-18-2009, 08:51 PM
aw i wanna be Rin

09-19-2009, 08:55 AM
Be Rin! It's regular clothes!!

...Okay, well it might require a slight bit of alteration, but still! XD

09-21-2009, 05:07 PM
Haha! I just started watching it, and I think its HILARIOUSSSS!!! :crylaugh:

09-22-2009, 07:39 AM
And oh man...I just realized for Akito...there is going to be 'side-boob' binding. >_<

lolz its ok cuz we all know his/her little secret!

yea the Momiji her name is Whitney Price and she works at Rudy & kelly in Greenbrier mall (not a creeker though) she is tiny.. look at my photos from AMA she is Maka (the blonde in the pleated skirt)

09-22-2009, 07:40 AM
aw i wanna be Rin

ok i have you down as ren!

09-22-2009, 07:48 AM
BTW, I think I will be out of town the weekend of the 3rd and 10th of oct. o.O

09-22-2009, 09:57 AM
ok.. Noah's Birthday (my son) is on Oct 25th so I cant do it that weekend. I was hoping for a Friday after 4:30pm or Sunday after 6pm

09-22-2009, 12:13 PM
Should we actually try to set a time/date? I'd be okay with the weekend of the 17th or halloween weekend.

It we're doing it outside we prolly wanna shoot between 5-6, cause towards the middle of october it will be almost dark around 7pm. If we did it AT 6pm, we could prolly make it, we'd just have to go pretty quick.

I'm okay with weekdays, cept I leave work at 5 (I could prolly leave at 4:30 if I can't in early) and I'm in portsmouth so if it's in VB it'd take me at least 45mins to an hour to get there during rush hour.

09-23-2009, 08:08 AM
ok Friday the 16th or Sunday the 18th is fine which is best for Mandy and Taryn? and BTW i didnt order the kyo & yuki wig, need to save money for Katsu.. maybe as a christmas present i can get those wigs!

so one of those days and Friday any time after 4:30, Sunday anytime after 6pm (we could have it in deep creek at Locks Park (they have that awesome old bridge) I was just trying to be friendly for the others. what about chesapeake city park near greenbrier mall is that ok for everyone? please let me know!!!

09-23-2009, 10:33 AM
Anywhere is fine with me. We should prolly take a poll, maybe figure out where everyone will be coming from. I can tell you if it's on a friday or sunday Taryn probably can't come, she has friday and monday classes and I dunno if shes going to want to drive back to richmond that late on a sunday, but I will check. I'll call Mandy too.

I think locks park has more of a senic view to it personally, I know some of the ppl have actually already done a furuba shoot there before. ^_^

09-23-2009, 01:31 PM
wow thats cool. i did my matanity photo shoot there..lol..

ok find out from Taryn and Mandy what day that weekend and what time is good for all 3 of you guys! and then I will double check with Whitney and the others on this thread

09-23-2009, 10:22 PM
Haha, Deep Creek Locks Park is where my friends and I had our Fruits Basket shoot! xDDD Huzzah fro being a Creeker. <3

It looks really nice, but if we're doing it in October, everything might have that dead-ish look, especially if we do it later in the day. D;

But my friends and I are available whenever~

09-24-2009, 07:44 AM
it should have fall colors everywhere! wow you are a creeker too?? i just moved to greenbrier, but i was born and raised in Deep Creek.. ok so now we have the place, just waiting on the time and day!
Kelly let me know when ya get a chance!

09-24-2009, 08:24 AM
Taryn said she most likely won't be able to make it because of school on either day. Mandy said the same but she said she will have to wait until she gets her schedule to be sure (they get them about two weeks in advance, so she won't know until about the first week in october). She said she almost always has to work on fridays and sundays around that time, and can't ask for any time off at the moment. If you'd like I have another friend from northern VA who'd be willing to come down and do Kyo (he already has the wig and said he can put together the costume), and since we don't know if Mandy can make it for sure we could have her be Haru if she does show up (cause we HAVE to have a Kyo, lol). Though if he came we'd have to do sunday cause he usually works fridays (and not to mention I work until 5pm and some of the ppls are still in school and that doesn't give them alot of time to get ready). Let me know what you want to do. ^_^

09-24-2009, 12:55 PM
Ok sunday is good. i might have a Kyo thats local.. let me check ^_^
i'll get back to you tomorrow on it.
Whitney (momiji) doesnt get off work untill 6pm on sundays im afraid it might be to dark, and she works all day saturdays (10 hrs)
hmm... this is getting tricky...

09-24-2009, 01:03 PM
i have a Shigure(my brother in law see in my gallary)
I am talking to my husband into being KYO again! hopefully if his friend Ben says yes to Haru (which he would cuz he loves cosplaying)

09-24-2009, 02:19 PM
Do you still want me to borrow the wig for you?

09-24-2009, 02:47 PM
i ordered it i am hoping to get it in before then.

09-24-2009, 06:03 PM
If your husband can't be Kyo, I know one. xDD

09-25-2009, 07:34 AM
we have a Kyo and Haru!!! YAY!!! at least with Josh being Kyo i can really get into portraying Kagura and not feel Guilty!

09-25-2009, 07:37 AM
Angel: can your friend try to pull off one of the other characters like Hatori?? just wondering ^_^

09-25-2009, 10:39 AM
Josh makes such a great Kyo, now you really can glomp him all the time (just don't, you know, break him lol) I'm so excited! If everyone shows up this will be a really big shoot! XD

I'm going to go out and buy fabrics for Akito next payday. It looks like it will be really easy, the only thing that might take a little time is painting the band on the haori (since it has a weird design and I'm a stickler for details, so I HAVE to do it. >_<).

09-25-2009, 03:08 PM
me too see my Fuu costume i hand painted all the flowers 2 nites before the con.... it took 4 hours!!! lol

09-25-2009, 05:39 PM
Possibly? xD
I don't know. I'll ask them and get back to you~

So right now, the shoot is scheduled for Sunday the 18th at The Locks?

09-25-2009, 08:40 PM
Yeah I painted the flames on my kamikirimusi costume, it took FOREVER. This shouldn't take long since it's mostly straight lines and I can prolly make stencils. ^_^

And yeah, I think we''re scheduled for the 18th at 6pm at the moment. ^_^

09-25-2009, 09:04 PM
This looks really epic... If I could come even just to take photos and chat it would be worth it. Alas, I am not beautiful enough to cosplay as a character from this series, although my voice and personality are eerily similar to Aya-san's.

09-25-2009, 09:53 PM
If you've got one of the characters cosplays, bring it. If not, come and hang out anyways! The more the merrier!!

09-26-2009, 08:56 PM
i titall agree with Kelly (liivingdeadgirl) ! Come and Hang out! Sunday the 18th at 6:00 is fine! i have church at 7 so if you want it earlier like 5ish let me know! thanks to everyone joining in! we might need a momiji if we do it earlier in the day on sunday, which im sure that is easy to find and i have a a boy who wants to join so he will fill any spot we need ^_^

09-27-2009, 07:25 PM
I'm fine with doing it earlier so just let me know when. If we do it at 6 it will have to go pretty quickly anyways cause there won't be much daylight left.

09-28-2009, 08:56 AM
so lets say 4:30, Sunday October 18th. is that good for everyone??

09-28-2009, 09:36 AM
Fine with me. XD

09-28-2009, 03:04 PM
ok ^_^

this is gonna be so much fun.
my wigs come in at the latest the 10th

09-28-2009, 06:05 PM
That works for me and my peeps. C:
I'm exciteddd. <3

I'm probably going to bring my camera as well to take some candid pictures and such to make memories : D

09-29-2009, 11:02 AM
Good! remember we still nedd some more characters so keep asking your friends to help out!!!!

09-29-2009, 08:58 PM
Mmkay, I'll ask around~

Oh, my friend who's going as Kisa wants to know if it's alright if she goes in Kisa's lolita (http://i595.photobucket.com/albums/tt36/SarahEatChoo/KISA2.jpg) outfit instead? She says her uniform fell apart in the dryer. D;

09-30-2009, 07:43 AM
yea! it doesnt matter what version of the character. even casual is ok!! i am trying to get a Hiro since he has an outfit with a white shortsleeve collar shirt with black shorts... cross your fingers that he will help us!

09-30-2009, 02:41 PM
*crosses fingers*

10-02-2009, 07:52 AM
well we might have a delehma here... Josh thought i was talking about the con when i said a photoshoot.. he freaked when i told him it was outside at the park..lol.. he is a closet cosplayer...lol.. but i think his friend who is doing haru will talk him into it. hopefully!!! and our momiji might not be off in time, urg.. i have the entire costume and wig if anyone can help out!

10-02-2009, 08:52 AM
lol. Well it's not like anyones really going to BE there that late in the afternoon, and besides, even if they are it's not like they will recognize him!

10-02-2009, 01:42 PM
if it boils down to it we will cut some of the outer family to have a yuki and kyo.. basicly need main characters!!!! (even if i have to do Kyo myself and not Kagura..lol) the wigs are due to arive at my house by the 10th and no later.

10-02-2009, 01:49 PM
as long as we have:

we are doing good...lol...

10-02-2009, 02:02 PM
But the whole point was cause you wanted some more pics of your Kigura! Tell him to suck it up! lol

10-03-2009, 12:36 PM
My Yuki says he has orchestra at five on Sunday and can't make it. D':
But I know a Momiji?
And I could probably ask Yuki if someone else could borrow the costume..

10-03-2009, 09:40 PM
i have the yuki school uniform and wig so i can figure something out! but your momiji would be good!!!

10-03-2009, 09:41 PM
and Kelly... hopefully he will ^_^

10-03-2009, 09:41 PM
now that he isnt going to the con... blackmail... muhaaaa... just kidden i love my hubby!

Physical address?

10-05-2009, 07:41 AM
its a park so thats hard to say... umm...
300 Luray Street, Chesapeake VA 23323
(its off George washington Hwy)

10-05-2009, 10:50 AM
Where are you coming from and I can give you directions. ^_^

10-05-2009, 12:04 PM
Also, if you need me to make Yuki instead of Akito, I can do that. His black school uni is just as easy to make, and we need a Yuki more than an Akito. Also, I have purple contacts. ^_^

10-05-2009, 04:14 PM
awww. and my wig will be in soon!!!! that would be great! its up to you. I was going to tell you that our boy uniform we went to thrift store, bought military black shirt, took pockets off, sewed v in front and used white hem tape to border the shirt. they turned out really good to me, and the black military pants work good or dickies. hot topic has white ties too! i have a hatori and a ren now.

10-05-2009, 06:30 PM
Where are you coming from and I can give you directions. ^_^

Ah! I'm all the way in Chester.
Two hour drive! DX

I'm still not sure if I can go, so I'm not getting my hopes up quite yet.
Cuz I don't have my license yet... ugh... only a permit.
Thus one of my parents or friends would have to take me.
Haha. But I hope I can!

IF I am able to go, I would love to do Akito(of course, if livingdeadgirl doesnt)!

10-05-2009, 10:26 PM
Well I'm pretty sure we need a Yuki, so if you guys want I can do him. I can just make the shirt (I have black dickies), though I might need help with the button holes. My sewing machine is fail at button holes, I usually have a friend do them, but might not see her in time. If it was just one I'd do it by hand.

It looks like just a regular shirt with the bottom front altered a bit, with bias tape over certain places. ^_^

10-06-2009, 07:37 AM
i just sewed the shirt closed with a zipper and took all the buttons off of it. (becasue anime characters get dressed without anyt buttons its magic) lol

yea Yuki would be great!

10-07-2009, 01:46 PM
Thanks for your help!

Also, theonlyangel and I were talking and think we are going to try and go for sushi (they have other stuff if you dun like it!!) after the shoot, so if you're free for a bit afterwards you should come! We are prolly going in costume, but this is not a requirement.

Also, if anyone needs a ride and is in the area (VB, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth) I can come pick you up and take you home if you need it. (I only have about 3 spots open in my car so it's first come first serve). Just send me a pm and I will give you my phone number. ^_^

10-07-2009, 02:03 PM
Btw, Ramen Pirate, I sent you directions in a PM. XD

10-07-2009, 02:53 PM
your too sweet :) i have a car full! so hopefully this will be epic!

10-14-2009, 03:35 PM
everyone ready???? its going to be ubber cold.. yuck.. so put your warm clothes on!
can't wait for this shoot - it will start at 4:30 on the dot and end by 5:30
then off to eat at yumi sushi on cedar!! YAY

10-14-2009, 11:01 PM
Aha, I can wear my scarf with an onigiri on it~
It really will be cold. I should probably wear some stockings to keep my legs warm. xPP

10-16-2009, 09:59 PM
<<<Still depressed for not being able to attend

I really wanted to come since I see there's no confirmed Ayame, but my band's behind in recording and I will be doing that all day instead... :walkoff:

Have fun and dress warm :wave:

Ramen Pirate
10-18-2009, 12:34 AM
Ahhh, I agree with Crusader!
I actually got my Akito done in time to... :waaaah:
My mom wants to watch movies tomorrow though, so I wont be able to make it. lol
Plus, again, its really far and I can't go alone. *sigh*

I'll get my license soon enough though, and definitely make it to the next get-together-thingy!!
Have fun ya'll! And take A TONNNN of good pics we can look at!! :D

PS: If you can, and wouldn't mind, get me a few real good shots of Tohru and Hatori solo pics that I can photoshop myself into!!
I would love you guys an gals forever! Please? :crylaugh:

10-18-2009, 02:01 PM
ok so hopefully we arn't rained out!!! its freezeing too!!!! sorry you guys cant come!!!

10-19-2009, 08:04 AM
ahhh i am so sad :*( I was on my way with 3 other people to the shoot (it was raining) and my car broke down! so my husband Jumped it and it broke down again so we never made it to the shoot ourselves! SORRY TO EVERYONE!!!!
