Hey Rosegoddess, we meet again. Ill be there, a FF shoot is always a smashing idea. Not sure who im going to cosplay though. April is far away.

EDIT: I hopefully will have DS Paladin Cecil done for AConji, but if not, im busting out either good ol' White Mage or Thief

01-24-2010, 07:33 PM
Yay! It will be great to see you again Ebay Sniper.

01-25-2010, 01:23 AM
I will probably be attending as Aerith Gainsborough in her original FFVII outfit. ^^ *points at Rose Goddess* Tifa-buddy! xD
Can't wait to see all everyone there. :3

It will be great to see you too again, RoseGoddess. Btw, take this as you will, but you are by far, the tallest Tifa I've seen, lol. Most of them are short.....

If you have any of these, Rosegoddess, hit me up!

@ Vinosec: Yay, Tifa Buddy! :D

@ eBay Sniper: yeah, I'm a giant. I know Tifa is only supposed to be 5'0'' :( I'd probably be the tallest "any" character. I'm doing Shiva for AX and Comic-con, so perhaps a giant Shiva would be more expected :D. ALA was my first FF gathering and I had so much fun! Well, I went to the one at ComicCon last year, but I was dressed like a faery so it didn't count.

I apologize that I haven't been able to edit the first post to include everyone's chosen character. Apparently there is an "edit post" bug in the system right now. I'll update it as soon as I am able. For now, most importantly, I wanted to remove the "tentative" from the date and time. They have set the official gathering time as 2:00 on 4/10 on their gathering list and I'd definitely like to snag it now since it is such a prime time and location.

I'm so excited!

Hi RoseGoddess,

I'll be going to Anime Conji and I've never been in a Final Fantasy group, or any cosplay group for that matter, before. But I'd love to join yours.

I met you last year too, @ comic con, your wigs were all tangled and me and my other fairy friends lent you a hand. We were the red, blue and green fairies.

01-26-2010, 10:57 PM
I'll be Yuffie Kisaragi, rockin her Advent Children outfit.

eBay Sniper
01-27-2010, 10:00 PM
Rosegoddess, lol, you should fit Shiva really well. I'm excited as well.

01-29-2010, 03:08 PM
Raaar...it still isn't letting me edit. Boo

@Blackiris: I remember you! Thanks for helping me out with my wings. I have a picture of all of the four of us. I need to post an online gallery of all my convention exploits. When I do, I'll give you the link.

Hooray, less than 2.5 months away!

So the countdown begins....

01-31-2010, 10:22 PM
I don't know if I'm going to Anime Conji, but, if I am, you may be joined by a cute little Professor Hojo >:3

sounds good

02-06-2010, 11:51 AM
I hope you can make it Kuro-kun! :)

02-07-2010, 11:06 PM
I am so excited about this! I went to the Final Fantasy meet up at ALA this past year and everyone looked amazing. I might have to whip something up and join you guys this year, if I'm not running around like chicken with my head cut off making sure Programming goes well. ^_^

Yay! The system finally let me update to include everyone's cosplays! It wouldn't let me for weeks...it was soooo frustrating.

eBay Sniper
02-24-2010, 03:58 PM
heh, just put me down as White Mage once again Rosegoddess. It doesn't seem like ill be getting Cecil done for A Conji. I havent even started it yet and tomorrow I leave for three weeks up in Bridgeport.

02-28-2010, 08:38 PM
My friend Aurora just informed me that she is working on her Terra Branford cosplay for Animeconji, so she might be joining us. Yay! Less than a month and a half away!

03-17-2010, 12:43 PM
I'm trying to convince my friends Kimiko and Jay to wear their Lightning and Noctis cosplays for our gathering.

Oh, and before I forget, the Animeconji programming schedule is up. They're having cosplay chess (on Sunday I think)! I might post a separate thread here on cosplay.com if no one else has yet. But what is cosplay chess without some FF action!!!!

eBay Sniper
03-18-2010, 01:03 AM
IM IN FOR SOME CHESS ACTION!!!!! You definately need some FF people for that. And coolies on the FFXIII guys coming.

And Im going to start work on Paladin Cecil as soon as I can, so depending on the method, I might be able to make it to A Conji!!!

03-18-2010, 10:38 PM
Confirm me! I just bought my pass.

I'd love to watch cosplay chess, but I've never even watched it before so I'm not up to signing up for something without knowing what I'd be getting in to.

03-18-2010, 11:51 PM
Yay kuro-kun!!!!

Oh, I just wanted to clarify that I'm not running the cosplay chess, I just wanted to mention it for everyone's knowledge. I'm actually speaking at a sewing panel during part of cosplay chess, but I'm going to try to observe for the first and last half hour of it.

eBay Sniper
03-19-2010, 10:38 PM
I actually might have Paladin Cecil done. im getting a lot of time off in the next few weeks. ill do my best!

03-26-2010, 02:05 AM
Eeeek! Two weeks, yay!

Hehe, they're having a cosplay pool party on Friday at noon. I'm going to try to throw together a Tifa swimsuit...shouldn't be too hard. Black swim bottoms, white top, suspenders...done!

eBay Sniper
03-26-2010, 09:17 PM
sounds good, if i have the time, maybe ill make a pair of White Mage swim trunks.

03-27-2010, 12:17 AM
Ooh, this sounds like something I'll be attending! Costa Del Sol Aerith? I think yes!~ xD
I should find a floatie-ball set and call it materia. :O

03-30-2010, 12:06 AM
@Vinosec: I am all for floatie-ball materia!! Superb idea!

Haha, we just need Costa del Sol Zack and Cloud and all will be right with the world...

@eBay: White Mage swimtrunks sounds cool :)

03-30-2010, 08:45 AM
Hm... Costa Del Sol Hojo... I have to do it.
I just don't want my lab coat to get wet D:

04-02-2010, 12:51 PM
Yay, I'm so excited. We in essence have two gatherings now! I'm still going to be Tifa for both, but I'll also be wandering around as Crisis Core Aerith at some point, probably Friday evening. I presented a paper on cosplay in one of my classes and made an Aerith cosplay to wear to class.

04-05-2010, 01:14 PM
It looks like we'll have an Azul, Rosso, and Vincent as well! Maybe more....I just got an email from someone I met at a gathering a few weeks ago. Their entire family cosplays Final Fantasy and said they were bringing other friends as well!

04-05-2010, 05:28 PM
I told my friend about this gathering and she may come as Genesis (if she remembers).

04-05-2010, 08:13 PM
It's me (the retard who cancelled the Kingdom Hearts Gathering) I cant come as Riku like I planned but I'll stop by probably to see how it goes. Good Luck :)

04-06-2010, 11:49 PM
Yay more people!!!

....teehee, I bought floatie ball materia today. We have a Holy and a Black Materia.

04-08-2010, 11:59 PM
See you all soon!

04-12-2010, 06:23 PM
Thank you all for coming! I had a blast. I'm definitely making Huge Materia Volleyball a tradition. I'll post links to pics as I find them. I can't wait to see you for Animeconji next year and hope to see you all sooner at other cons and gatherings!

Thats wonderful Rosegoddess, great pics, but how do we save them?

04-24-2010, 11:11 PM
I think you have to email him to request them

eBay Sniper
04-25-2010, 12:24 AM
I see, well my dude and I might have a few "tricks" up our sleeve. But we will have to see on that....
