Is anyone interested in showing up to the meeting in costume for the fun of it ^^?

I'll probably be their in my Varanoir costume if I can get a long blonde wig intime.

**EDIT** holy CR*P this is the first time in weeks my post topic actually posted!

The manga is SOooooo good, I'm currently collecting it #3 comes out this month :)

the Anime Has nothing on the Manga, the first 2 manga novels acutally have all the episodes which are in the anime (4 episodes in the anime.. and each the first and 2nd novel have 2 of the stories each, some are slightly different).

CTRL-A's (The Club That Really Likes Anime) having our annual Halloween costume contest, if anyone's interested in travelling out to Waterloo. We're also having our craft and drawing seminars that weekend, if anyone feels like making the duck from Princess Tutu, or learn to draw from a demi-Pro.

As for the contest, you can expect a good selection of quality costumes here, considering how quite a few of the people who won awards in the Artisan level at AN'03 is in our club. That is, if they make anything special for this year...

so there's an actual story in Pet Shop? *o* I thought it was just stories from the animals going all scary, I read an installment in the tokyopop freebie book. That's how I fell in love with Glass of Under Moon ^_~

thanks. i'll try to pick it up when kodocha and chobits is over. gotta balance my collection of poordom. lmao

I would love to go to waterloo, but its a bit out of my driving range :\ As I would be getting a ride from a friend.. maybe some of us could have a mini road trip hehe.

AngelCosmos: Well it is based on a story by story basis.. you find out a little more about D each time though :) The Stories are always about something different, I can bring my first Volume to Utarpa on the 31st if you want to read some of it doing the meeting ^^

re: ctrl-a...

yeah, sure ctrl-a is my home anime club and sure i've won four masquerade awards this year including "best in show workmanship", but that doesn't mean the ctrl-a costume contest is worth a damn! i swear could wear my fucking Merryweather dress against 15 people and not win ANYTHING unless everyone knew the series and i flipped my skirt up for good measure. it's not like they have anything remotely resembling *costume* judging. if i win anything this time it will only be because the outfit i'm wearing has vinyl bits and the skirt happens to be somewhat short so if i'm lucky i'll end up with points for fanservice. which is meaningless to me -_-;;

stupid ctrl-a costume thingie... *grumbles*

err... but yeah! come to ctrl-a! other than the retarded contests, it's very very good! >_>;;

I'm still considering going to OtaQu...only thing that makes me hesitant is the whole...'okay, i know how to GET to Kingston...and it's pretty hard not to find Queen's once you're there...but...what the hell am I going to stay???' eh heh...

damn, i wish my relatives hadn't moved out west...T_T <---so selfish XD

UTMAnime is also having a Hallowe'en contest this year. ^_^ My title's up for grabs as I wouldn't compete this year anyway, even if I was there. I wish I could be there to see who succeeds me, though. =\

What did you win last year Mage?

Mage
10-08-2003, 01:52 AM
I can't remember....x_X; Oh yeah! A 1/100 (I think) scale model of Gundam Nataku. I like models a whole bunch, so that rocked. ^_^ Or maybe it wasn't for the halloween show. I can't remember. x_X;

I've won four times (2x halloween, 2x anniversary) and got the following stuff: nadesico movie soundtrack, the gundam model, the entire Gatekeepers series on DVD and...oh crap...i can't remember the other thing...o_o; oops.

I really encourage entering these things just for the experience...it's nice to go up there in front of a relatively small group and without the pressure of a real masquerade. ^_^

Not to sure what time.. maybe around 7:30 - 8 :)
Once its closer I will know for sure :)

xiola
10-08-2003, 11:41 AM
mage: i don't neccessarily encourage entering these things! :P in my case they are not very encouraging! i mean, it doesn't help that my anime club has in it's attendance a) one of my friends that's won major presentation awards at AN for the past 4 years incl. Best in Show except this year, b) Yaoi Pocky boy, who always wins something c) Minako, who always shows me up. plus the fact that no one knows the stuff i cosplay so they just don't give a damn at all, and something fanservicey wins. lucky me i have a mildly fanservicey costume this year. i'm sure i still won't win anything though. -_-

so it's really not like a smaller crowd gives me a better chance of winning anything.. -_-;;

then again, i have issues with contests. we all know this. *sigh*

i'm late for class. i suck -_-

-_-;;

It only a club contest.

I mean it's like halloween at a bar, you can have the most amazing costume ever but the pimp and his hos will always win. No point in stressing or complaingin over it, it's just for fun.

Lafiel
10-08-2003, 01:48 PM
Fanervicey.. eh??
Hrmm..

Urk, note to self, check this board more often.

Regarding the costume contest.... I guess I should probably revise the rules a bit. I never did like the part where half of our points were based on how the audiance cheered. I sympathize in some ways with Xiola, having lost not because of quality of my work... I think Lorenzo took the Ayanami Rei clock just to spit me. ;_<

Anyhoo, since I'm not participating this year, I guess I could try to form a worksmanship judging panel consisting of me, myself, and whoever I arbitrary choose. Don't worry, I'm cruelly sadistic when it comes to rating costume, no favoritism here. Just, um, bring a reference pic so I'll know what to compare to.

And I'd thank you not to refer to me as 'Yaoi Pocky Boy'. O_o''' I'll not refer to you as 'Spice' Girl. >=P

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

xiola
10-14-2003, 11:39 PM
heh... i was actually going to ask you but you're never online... if you'd consider having me as a workmanship judge (so i wouldn't be entering), and give a few workmanship awards as a seperate category. even if the workmanship ones don't win *prizes*, i don't care. i'd just like to RECOGNIZE such things, because it would make me feel better. the other advantage to having me do it is if anyone at the club complains about fairness, i actually DO have stuff i can point to as far as "credentials", at least for a small audience like this, because since i go to school for it people can't complain that i "don't know what i'm talkign about" or something. (not that i'd ever consider judging anything big, i hardly think i'm that cool, but as far as an event this small goes, we're obviously not going to be out-sourcing for judges or anything.)

but yeah... anyway... um. i suppose i shoudl email you. but i hate composing proposals in emails... i end up taking an hour to write an email for no good reason >_<

Maybe they should reaname it the ctrl-a Fanservice Contest? <chuckles>

(But serriously), I applaud the fact that the club is making the effort to sponsor a contest at all. Things like this always have the potential to grown and evolve into something truely amazing if people are willing to help it along. :) Xiola, I commend you for stepping forward and offering to help with a form of workmanship judging. I hope the members of Ctrl-a responsible for organizing the contest take it into consideration. As Minakolabelle, (I belive) pointed out earlier, there are a good number of Anime North attendees that are part of Ctrl-a, so it seems there is already a pretty savy fanbase participating. :)

Good luck to all who participate, wether as an organizer or contestant. I hope someone posts results and of course pictures here after the fact. :)

Cheers!

Only if you're trying to give the organizer, me, stomach ulcers. ^_-''''

Hmm... Non-prize winning positions for craftsmanship... I haven't thought of it that way. Talk to me this weekend Xiola, if you show up.

Heh, heh. I dunno if Lafiel will mention it, but after utarpa, we when to the Savage Garden. Some of the guys talked Lafiel into entering the costume contest, and she did pretty well.
She came in fifth, which was pretty good considering it was based on crowd applause, and one of the girls was topless, except for some green body paint. :P
Anyway, it was really cool meeting you guys, and it looks like the pics turned out really well.
