Hello again boys and girls - Red Spy here from Megacon! Planning to cosplay a class from TF2 at Metrocon? Who will you be and on what days? How's your costume construction going? Share all thoughts about TF2 here!

We'll definitely be scheduling a meet-up and photoshoot as we get a little closer to the actual convention date, but feel free to comment with your preference for what day and time the gathering should be. Let's get planning!

I know for sure that my cosplay partner and I will be doing RED Spy & BLU Scout's Mom again on whatever day the meet-up is, and possibly Medics on another day. It's still too soon to tell!

Yes, yes, I'm here. ;]

BLU Spy, reporting in. Scout and I are going to be making it a conscious effort to be there. (And hopefully this time, I won't be running around like a madwoman at the last second trying to get things together!)

Hey guys, Red Heavy from megacon here. (the blonde hair one with the big bullet bandoleer, with the real sandviches =P) i'll probably be doing heavy again, not sure what day, maybe friday again.

Haha! We're all the same people from Mega so far, good to hear we'll be seeing some of that crew again, it was fun! Hopping in to say that we'll be bringing a big picnic lunch on Friday for any of the TF2 crew thats interested, I'm not sure when the photoshoot for us will end up, but the food has to be on Friday since I'll be bringing it from home. :] I'll set up a time for the picnic when we're closer to Metro, I'm not sure yet what the schedule is for the con.

Can I just say that you look absolutely AMAZING in every shot that I have from the shoot at Mega? Your expression is priceless. It gets me every time.

This is good that we're having most of the same people so far! I'm excited to see a lot of you guys again - it already feels like it's been forever since Megacon~!

By the way, I just wanted to let everyone who doesn't live in the area know that there's a very cheap and relatively close hotel to the con that some of us TF2 folk are staying at. So if any more TF2 cosplayers want to try to get a room there we might be able to set up some impromptu gatherings and/or late-night pool parties and/or other shenanigans. It's the Tampa Bay Doubletree Guest Suites and it's $67 a night as of right now: http://travelc.priceline.com/hotel/hotelOverviewGuide.do?key=g790l5xf&propID=39045&jsk=2003010a2103010a2010032613144440A511478787&plf=PCLH

Hey guys! For those of you going to be at AFO this year for our convention-wide Capture The Intel! game, I've got the Administrator in-game announcement system up and running over on Twitter: http://twitter.com/capturetheintel

Through here, all captures will be noted in-game (Except to see tweets saying "BLU Team has captured the enemy intelligence!") as well as an hourly score-count. If you don't have a Twitter don't worry about joining - we'll have screens running at each base with all of this info - but if you want to get cell phone text updates whenever a capture is made you'll need to make an account and click on the icon that says "Updates are not sent to your phone" to activate this service.

Just wanted to let everyone know~!

alluneedisluv
03-29-2010, 06:43 PM
Wow we've got the twitter up and going?? Does that mean we have confirmation from AFO or does it just mean we're going to do it anyways even if its not official? XD (We SO will.) The plan sounds great and I'm really glad this is actually happening! I'm SO going to have the most intel caps! :] How are we going to be able to get the intel back from someone if they have ours?

Anyways, I'll be making a twitter then, I'm gonna be all over this game for as long as it lasts so I need to know these updates, haha!

And about the picnic, yes of course there will be sandwiches! ^^ Its going to be TF2 themed food, though I'm not giving away any of the other dishes yet.

Champuro
03-29-2010, 07:58 PM
We don't have official confirmation, but we don't really need it. The confirmation is only on whether or not there will be an actual panel instead of just a group meet-up. We'll definitely be having the game unless AFO chases us off with brooms and pitchforks, and even then we'll probably still be makin' captures!

We've got a pretty neat system worked out where you can "kill" a player and take your intel back by tearing off a team sticker that all players will wear on their arm (where class patches are in the game). RED players will get to wear RED logo stickers and BLU players will get BLU logos, and that's essentially your life in the game. Once your sticker is torn off, you've got to go all the way back to your base and "respawn" with a new sticker. :>

GiruSniper
03-29-2010, 09:18 PM
Thats cool, i was wondering if there was a way to kill other players. for the stickers its a good idea if one player sneak attacks the other and rips the sticker off (like a spy backstab, instakill) but what happens if we run into each other? are we just suppose to wrestle each other trying to rip off the sticker? kinda difficult if your already carrying around a huge weapons like my sasha.

dunno if you want to have gun rules or not? like if you carrying a weapon and you have it pointed at the player and yell "Bang" first you kill the other player? but you have to be within like 10 ft of the player?

probly just get too cofusing and im probly handicapping myself with this rule anyways trying to whip sasha around to yell bang while a little spy carrying those cap gun revolvers just quick draw on me i'll die alot lol.

Just gonna have to use my heavy ninja skills and hide in a bush and jump the other players as they walk by lol.

Champuro
03-29-2010, 09:33 PM
If players run into each other then it's all up to who can tear the other person's sticker off fast enough. We're going to try to have a game moderator wandering around to make sure that all kills are fair, but it's pretty much up to you guys as players to keep things respectful. Of course you can come to us if a player without a sticker tore yours off and we'll give you a new one, but as for who-tore-first you guys will have to figure that out yourselves. I'm not really too worried, though - all of you guys are so incredibly chill and amazingly nice, so I have a lot of trust in you. :>

We're actually not going to involve prop weapons at all since that makes it really hard to figure out who shot who and who needs to respawn. For cosplayers like you who are Heavies or Pyros or other classes with massive weapons we'll have a weapons drop at each base for you guys where B. (my cosplay partner and the other mod for this endeavor) and I will watch over your props and bags and things during the game if you think they'll get in the way. You don't have to if you don't want to, though - you're more than welcome to carry your weapons around but I know for you especially that might be really difficult.

Ninja skills will definitely come in handy in this game! Brush up on 'em and you'll be set~!

03-30-2010, 01:15 AM
<3 This game. I agree with keeping weapons out of it, it could make things really complicated and whatnot really quick... the only thought we had that I liked was that if you have a medic with you, you have to steal their sticker first, then the person with them. I may be thinking up unnecessary rules though ^^;

Thank god we can leave weapons with you, I'll definitely be dropping my prop intel and scattergun with you guys for this. I'll still bring sandman though, because I'd feel lost without it. XD

And I'm assuming whatever team you came in cosplay in is what you get. Just in case there happen to be too many BLU's me and spy have RED outfits as well and can switch if necessary. I'd rather not if we're close though, BLU team for the win!

Yep! You're allowed to do whatever you want - you can even make a huge Red Rover chain in front of the base if you'd like. :D

We're still trying to figure out the Medic thing - our first instinct was to give Medic's two stickers, one for themselves and one that they could use on other players at their discretion, but that brought up the issue of how to make it so they wouldn't just use it on themselves, or on people carrying the intel. We need a simple way to take down people stealing the intel without any loopholes or what not, and I think the two sticker idea might infringe on that a bit. I like that idea about taking the Medic's sticker first, but we've got to figure out a reason for players to have Medics with them in the first place...

When we get a little closer to the con I'll start running a count both here and on Twitter as to how many players we have signed up and on which team they're playing on so people who could do either can come dressed accordingly. You guys don't have to worry, though - you're both BLU's and that's that! :>

alluneedisluv
03-30-2010, 12:43 PM
Hmmm I think there'd have to be a way to know which person a medic was 'healing'. If there was a set way know that then it would simply be a matter of having to kill the medic. I think the reason for having a medic would be to help steal the intel back. If you're trying to get the sticker of the person with the intel or anyone with them, you'll have extra protection/time to get it. The medic will be standing behind you most likely so it would make the 2 of you a bit more difficult to kill.

.:Kiwi Tea:.
03-30-2010, 02:31 PM
Just posting to let you guys know I'm alive.

What about giving the Medics another sticker, with the "Medic!" symbol on them? That way they could use them to "heal" whoever they wanted by slapping it on someone else. Then you'd have to get THAT sticker as well as the Logo sticker off of the person. And if the Medic dies, of course, they take their "Medic!" sticker back.

And don't worry, we'll ALWAYS be BLU. Despite what B. says. Better dead than RED.

I am seriously digging that idea. I'll bring it up with B. and see what he thinks, but that is a good way to solve our problems regarding the Medic. We're already going to have to go crazy printing out stickers - no harm in adding a few more!

Also, I am in a Panera laughing hysterically like a lunatic over the "Better dead than RED" thing. Everyone around me thinks I'm insane now, but I don't care because that's amazing. I want to get a tattoo of that.

03-30-2010, 09:35 PM
And then of course you'd have Medic stickers to go run around and slap on people at other cons and/or anywhere else. Which is perhaps the best part of that plan.

Ha! Really? I thought I said it to B. once or twice at Megacon. XD Though I may be mistaken; my brother and I will randomly say it if anything reminds us of RED, so we say it A LOT. It's just the best saying ever though, am I right? Doubly so because the REDs don't have anything to say back. Muhahaha!

On a completely unrelated note, Panera~ <3

I wouldn't be so sure of that - B. spent a good fifteen minutes last night with a rhyming dictionary trying to come up with something good to say back.

He's got a good one, too, but he kind of has to be in Spy get-up for it to have full effect. OH THE SUSPENSE.

03-31-2010, 01:57 PM
ok wait i just got confused for a sec. were talking about this in the metrocon thread but your previous post said AFO, are we only doing this for AFO or both? personally i think we should do this for any con if there are enough people.

and i really want to know what B. came up with for Red.

.:Kiwi Tea:.
03-31-2010, 04:18 PM
Really? Actually, I'm not all that surprised...

Oh c'mon now, that's just mean. You can't tell me he came up with something and then NOT TELL ME WHAT IT IS. *Sigh* Oh fine. I'll wait. >.>

@GiruSniper - Yeah, it's meant for AFO. We're talking about this on the Metrocon thread in case people in this thread want to meet up there as well.

alluneedisluv
03-31-2010, 06:44 PM
Haha! Really? I thought we were just talking about it here because we got off topic like we always do. XD We should probably either start up an AFO thread as well for this topic or just chat in PM's for a while.

And I don't care what B came up with, my response if he says it at Metrocon will be a nerf-scattergun bullet to the back of the head. XD I wonder how long till I get in trouble, if I manage to keep it functional... I'll have to be sneaky

Champuro
03-31-2010, 10:41 PM
Girusniper - We get off topic. A LOT. It's kind of a bad habit. Yes, the game is for AFO only at the moment, since that's where our super big TF2 meet up is going to be this year, but if it goes over well there then we'll definitely do it anywhere else that we can!

Oh man, I've really built up the suspense, huh? I'll see if I can get him on here again to tell you guys himself... :>

Also: Halle, I love you. The nerf-scattergun bullet comment had me ROLLING.

@AmethystWolf - The only place I can think to look are your local thrift stores. We've been having a hard time trying to find overalls for Engi as well and if you can't find them in stores, it may just be best to start searching online. As for Engi's glove, maybe Home Depot or Lowes? Something in that department might have them. On a separate note, we're TOTALLY excited to see someone else headed our way! And don't worry, everyone starts off at some time, and TF2 is a great way to pick up the cosplaying bug! It's fairly easy and the crowd is AMAZING, so just do your best and have fun with it. ^^

@Prota-Girl - Whee, thanks so much! Can't wait to see you there too!

Yikes, this thread has died considerably!

If anyone else has plans to cosplay TF2 for this convention, you would be doing us a HUGE service by posting and letting us know! BLU Scout (alluneedisluv) and I are trying to whip up a TF2 picnic for Friday and we need to get a vague idea as to how many people we're gonna need to pack for. Also, if any of you guys wanna be dears and bring something to the picnic to share with the rest of your fellow TF2 cosplayers, it would be beyond appreciated! Otherwise, just post and let us know what's up.

Sorry for the delay! Offline's been pretty crazy as of late.

Yeah, it's been crazy trying to find a proper pair of overalls, especially since I'm a big girl - I think looking online will probably be my best bet. But I found the gloves - thank you for the advice!

And thanks for the encouraging words! I'm still nervous, but all of the TF2 people I've seen seem to be pretty darn cool, and I'm looking forward to meeting others who enjoy the game. I can't wait to meet everyone there!

(Oh, and if that picnic is still happening, I'll see if I can rustle something up..)

.:Kiwi Tea:.
07-01-2010, 03:30 AM
We just found my cosplay partner's pair of overalls and have proceeded to find at least three more pairs at the local thrift stores. So my advice? Keep checking but make sure you have an online back-up plan! If you need help, I can go run around for a bit and see what I can find around the interwebs, ahah!

Don't worry; on this end, we just convinced a group of friends of ours to cosplay TF2 with us and they'll be joining us as first-time cosplayers too! And we definitely welcome anyone who wants to join the madness that is the Team Fortress 2 fandom. XD

Yes, the picnic is still happening and if you feel the need to bring something, it would be most appreciated! (And on a side note, you shouldn't have to worry about that cosplay of yours; you're already in the Engie spirit using phrases like "rustle up." XD Good on ya!)

AmethystWolf
07-01-2010, 02:46 PM
Definitely still keeping it up. I'm going on another hunt today, actually, so wish me luck! Thank you for the offer for help, though - I may take you up on it, depending on my success (or lack thereof) here.

Haha, that makes me feel a hell of a lot better! I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone, because it sounds like this'll be awesome. :3

Oh, definitely. I couldn't show up at a picnic empty handed. Is there a time set for it? I know that Friday was mentioned..
(pfffft - I didn't even notice that, oh dear! Maybe I'm getting too in character..)

edit: Got a pair of overalls! :D

.:Kiwi Tea:.
07-01-2010, 10:43 PM
Alright! Congrats on the overalls; somehow, I think this is when people get rid of them. Not quite sure why, but hey, more to our benefit.

It will be, I'm sure. We seem to have a really awesome group pulling together; I already know the little group that we're bringing is quite the party. XD

Uh, we were thinking sometime later on Friday, so that we could place the picnic where people could eat there and not have to worry about spending money for dinner. As for a time, we're kind of in the air right now about that. (Ahaha, no way. Keep the character; it'll be great for shots and videos. XD)

AmethystWolf
07-04-2010, 04:44 AM
It was a major relief getting those. Otherwise, I would have resorted to using jeans, which - meh, accuracy. There's still a number of things that I need to fix up on the outfit, now that I think about it, but I'm too broke, so it'll be BLU Engineer 1.0, I figure. :]

Oh, my! That sounds very promising.

Sounds like a good plan to me. I'll drop in here every so often to check for times/updates and such. Anyone like Sandviches for the picnic?
(*laughs* Alright. I can't make any promises, mind, but I'll do my best!)

.:Kiwi Tea:.
07-04-2010, 09:00 AM
It was the same for us. It was either find them or order them online, and we're so wary about getting stuff like that. :/ Even the Engie goggles are nerve-wracking for us because we like to be able to see what we are buying in person.

Ahaha, got Sandviches covered. xD That was really the first thing we ever thought to bring and what started the picnic idea. But if you'd like to bring more, then by all means! We're already fretting about how to fit everything in my little four-door Nissan, along with the luggage and cosplays of five people. XD

AmethystWolf
07-04-2010, 05:04 PM
Yeah - I'm hesitant about buying clothing online, since the fits can be.. rather all over the place, especially for pants. I trust the company I ordered from since their clothing is exactly the same as what you'd find in their brick-and-mortar store, so I lucked out. Paid more to have it hemmed, but I figure I'm going to wear them more then once, so what the hell.

*laughs* I figured as much! I can see about either making more of 'em or getting other things like water/snacks/etc, depending on money. And oh gosh, that's quite a bit for that car! Good luck with all that, fffff. I BELIEVE IN YOU!

No one wants to pay for food at a con! :D And I don't want it too early because Friday is when everyones still showing up. Don't want to miss anyone.

Also, does anyone know metro's layout pretty well? We need an easy to find place to meet so we can all head outside for the food/photoshoot.

Hey folks, Scoutmama of the RED Spy that started this thread reporting in! I just wanted to let everyone know that in addition to the picnic & photoshoot/meet-up that we've got going on, I'm also going to be hosting a TF2-themed pajama party on Saturday night for any TF2 cosplayers that want to come!

The party is clean and all in good fun, so basically it's just an excuse to romp around in character and take some silly pictures in the process. We'll have popcorn and snacks, too, so all you need to bring is your costume (or pajamas! those are encouraged!) and any props or in-character related stuffs that you see fit!

I'll be posting the address of the hotel & the room number a little closer to the con date, so keep checking back and let me know if you'd be interested!

Establishing a meeting place would be best >~< I guess I'll find the nearest TF2 cosplayer and stick with them until everyone's all together. Right? Or should we meet someplace like upstairs in the loft area behind that little dealer area? PLEASE GET BACK TO THIS THE CON'S IN LESS THAN A WEEK!!! *so excited*

Well, it's cliche, maybe, but - there's the large staircase by Franklin Street. I figure it'd be easy to find TF2 peeps if we all meet out there, eh?

I know that none of the organizers for the picnic/meet-up have been to Metro before, so wherever you guys suggest is great! We will need some kind of an open space for the picnic, but are there any places that would lend to a really good photoshoot too?

Okay, folks! The pajama party will be held at the Doubletree Guest Suites at 3050 North Rocky Point Drive West. I won't be posting the room number on here, but I will announce it during the photoshoot, picnic, and whatnot, so if you'd like to come just come find me anytime during the con!

I'll be Rose Tyler from Doctor Who on Friday (and then switching to Scout's Mom gear for the picnic), Scout's Mom on Saturday, and then a Little Sister from Bioshock 2 on Sunday, so if you see any version of me don't be afraid to say hello! Haha~

The pajama party will probably only last about two hours, maybe three. Everyone will definitely be out by midnight, but you're more than welcome to come and go as you please between 9 & 12.

It'll be on the convention grounds somewhere - well within walking distance. All of the organizers for the TF2 events are Metro-newbies so we have to scout everything out beforehand. XD That's why we're just going to meet in front of the Dealers Room and then all walk together to wherever the picnic organizers see fit.

As far as location, yes we're not quite sure yet, but we're definitely going to be checking that patio out... And we'll be sending some of our crew to search for TF2 people before 5 oclock rolls around so hopefully by 5 we'll be a very noticable crew forming in front of the dealers room!

Okay, guys, Friday is officially upon us~! Remember that the potluck picnic meet-up is at 5 o'clock today! Everyone will meet in front of the dealers room and then go to the picnic area, so be sure to tell everyone you see in TF2 cosplay about the it!

I'll be dressed as Rose Tyler (http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/gallery/s2_07gallery/1024/rose_magpie_doc.jpg) from Doctor Who in the morning so if you have any questions, need any help, or just want to chat feel free to track me down! Can't wait to meet some of you and to see others again~! See you at 5~!

Hey folks~! I don't know how many of you are going to check this tonight, but thanks so much to everyone who showed up at the picnic today! I'll be posting the photoshoot photos as soon as Monday rolls around so just keep checking back here!

As for tomorrow, there's still the music video shoot for Clutch's Electric Worry! We will be meeting at 12 o'clock pm in the same area where the picnic was held (second floor patio - just past Artist's Alley and the Fighting Arena) and then will begin shooting nearby shortly thereafter. Tomorrow night there's also the TF2 Pajama Party at the nearby Doubletree Hotel! The address for that is 3050 North Rocky Point Drive West - it's about eight miles from the convention center and is a ten minute drive if you take the highway. We have the room number now so I'll be texting everyone who gave me their number at the picnic, but if you want to go and didn't catch me there send me a message or find me at the shoot tomorrow! The pajama party goes from 9 o'clock until midnight, and will include popcorn and games (including COSPLAY TWISTER!) So be sure to come in costume or TF2 themed pajamas!

Okay, I think that's it for now! Thanks again everyone and see you tomorrow!
