I have yet to see ANYONE cosplay her. If you can pull it off, you got mad skillz. :)

I'm kinda glad to hear more people doing DDR cosplay for next year's Katsucon. This year there were only 3 DDR COSPLAYERS so next year might be interesting. Studmaster might be doing Captain Jack, but it's not confirmed yet.

Link, you and me... on the DDR pad :devil:

Who da fuck is Lance? Whatever, he looks pretty damn tastey.... BRING HIM IN! :devil:


<<I think we need like a massive DDR grouping here... Every single character possible!>>
OMG yea... I never thought there would be more than 5 DDR cosplayers attending atsu. There might be a Devil Zukin joining us too, I forgot her Cosplay.com name... We need to break a DDR group record :) or at least I won't be one of the very few DDR cosplayer fans.

Hey... think we should do some skit involving the "DDR ALL Stars" song? If we can have a group of no more than 8 DDR cosplayers... it's gonna rock.

<<Jezeroth - 4th Mix Astro>>
Since when did we get an Astro? He show up, I'm giving that cosplayer a glomp and 10 bucks just for walking around in spandex. :bigtu:

Blah, shit happens. I missed the Cosplay.com photoshoot and most of the FF8 grouping because I had a major hangover (REAL STUPID MOVE THAT MADE ME FORFEIT MY DDR COMPETITION WHICH I TRAINED FOR A YEAR!) and tried to recover from it :bigcry:. I was a little disappointed about not finding the Emis, but I'm not mad at you guys. No one abandoned the group, it was still a success.... but if it all goes well, this will be a BIGGER DDR photoshoot than Otakon 2003's.

But anyhow, bring her if you can! :D

Ranma, I've never been to Anime Next before so do you think that you could give me a run down about what that skit was about so that I don't end up repeating it? I have a DDR skit in mind for an upcoming con and I wouldn't want to step on anyone's toes.

It was a heavily choreographed dance performance to the song "DDR All Stars" featuring five DDR characters from various mixes, with a variety of dance styles including a pseudo-DDR style step routine, raving, and hip/hop-jazz. It featured the character Astro "performing" the song while the characters in the back did routines. It's also availible at Chocoborancher-anime.com's website under AnimeNEXT, second to last skit to download.

11-02-2003, 11:38 AM
Thanks for the info, Jezeroth. That was a pretty awesome video.

For the group hang out, we can do it around Saturday morning/afternoon or Friday. I'm planning to leave to hop on the metro back home around 2pm ish so that should leave us plenty of time... unless you all have other photoshoot schedules.

Friday 9 (if you mean PM) or early Saturday both seem like they'd both fly pretty well for me. I don't think any of the other stuff I've got slated is horribly complex (unless I get one certain project finished), so it's not like I wouldn't be able to change on the fly if needs be.

One character I would love to see show up besides Rage.... the DDR drug lord himself, IZAM. Or a Konsento. There's a suggestion I will throw out, but it doesn't have to be done. If people stick with their commitments, this is going to be an awesome DDR group.

Sorry to hear that Rinkun. You'll be in the group in spirit though.

I've talked to Kurobara. And she has said that she would bring her Ni-Na to Katsucon, so that's someone else on the roster.

As for the time of the gathering. It seems like the SNK gathering will be on Friday night at this point. So I say the DDR gathering should be on Saturday at 11 AM. (This leaves no one with an excuse about not being able to get up early enough unless something happens)

If you take note in the Spin the Disc Video, she's the girl with the auburn/brown hair tied back and spiked out. She's also in the Look to the Sky video with Alice and Emi. Does anyone know her name or have any clear pictures of her? I know I could certainly play the different stages over and over again until I have a concrete image of her in my head, but when I can't play, I would like to have something to work from.

If I do manage to pull a DDR costume out of my rear, it would probably be the chinese, mandarin collar and white, rave pants version of her. But, as stated, its a great big maybe. I'll leave confirmation probably within the next month.

And as for a skit? ^_^; That I will not be able to partake in.

*peeks into the Katsucon forum*

As Studmaster said I'm...most likely going to Katsucon, so I'll bring Ni-Na. It looks like Emi, but damnit! It isn't Emi! (Emi is cool. It just gets frustrating being mistaken for her) An Izam would be great, I've never seen anyone cosplay him! Friday night / Saturday morning sounds good. This sounds like it'll be a really fun photoshoot! As for skits, I have severe stage fright >_< Count me out!

Kellie- I know who you're talking about! I'll play the games next week (boyfriend is bringing PS2 + dance pads for thanksgiving) and see if I can help ya.

Speaking of boyfriends, he's coming to Katsu and wants to cosplay a ddr character too. Maybe Rage? Anyone have suggestions?

Ranma Saotome
11-19-2003, 11:54 PM
No. I am the one and only Rage. :D hehehehehe

But Ni-Na does have a dancing partner from 4th Mix I believe. Hit me up on AIM and I can help you out! ^_^

Ranma Saotome
11-19-2003, 11:57 PM

Izam from 4th Mix. That's Ni-Na's dance partner.

BTW, tried to IM you. ^^;;;;

Thanks Ranma. *kicks computer* My IM is being wonky tonight, sorry! We always dance as Emi & Rage, that's why he wants to cosplay him. Hey...there will be more than one Emi, won't they need more than one Rage? ^_~ Neither one of us likes Izam's design.

Um... sorry I haven't been posting much, but I'm back.

<<;_; fuu~n, i'm gonna have to pull out of the group. i have too much to work on as it is and another costume will just drive me insane, even though it is simple. sorry. but i'll look out for you all!

::kicks college and lack of job hours::>>
Thanks for letting us know! We're sorry you can't make it. :(

<<As for the time of the gathering. It seems like the SNK gathering will be on Friday night at this point. So I say the DDR gathering should be on Saturday at 11 AM. (This leaves no one with an excuse about not being able to get up early enough unless something happens)>>
That sounds perfect to me.

<<Buuuu~t! Because I'm a sucker for anything DDR-related, I've been meaning to do a DDR costume. But the girl I want to do isn't listed and I, sadly, do not know her name.

Traine's chick... I know who you're talking about. I don't quite have her name unfortunately. She was also in Long Train Running video. If you can do her, that would be great since Oshi's cosplaying Traine.

As for picture of her, I got it right here (http://www.geocities.co.jp/Playtown-Toys/4630/gallery/bm/units.jpg) and here. (http://home.f08.itscom.net/maruhana/cg/telephone.jpg)

<<As Studmaster said I'm...most likely going to Katsucon, so I'll bring Ni-Na.>>
Awesome... I saw a couple pics of your costume and I'm quite impressed. You make a kick ass Ni-Na.

<<Speaking of boyfriends, he's coming to Katsu and wants to cosplay a ddr character too. Maybe Rage? Anyone have suggestions?>>
If he does Rage, beaware he will be glomped by me... cuz everyone knows I have the hots for Rage and it's the only time I release the fangirlness in me. It'll be just a glomp, nothing else. promise. :p

<<Hey...there will be more than one Emi, won't they need more than one Rage?>>
Too... MANY... EMIS...! WHY... WON'T... THEY... STOP... INVADING....! One of them I might perform a bit of Yuri just for kicks, but it's up to the cosplayer's permission. Back to what you were saying... If he wants to do Rage, bring him. 2 Rages won't hurt. Isn't that right RANMA? :D

Well... OK! ^_^

I am doing 5th Mix Rage, so perhaps he can do 3rd or 4th? I would prefer alternate costumes than duplicates, ya know? ^^;;;

I shall be putting together a DDR OST for us to chill with for the photoshoot. Right now this is my song list, and I'm looking for another 6 titles or so:

1. Spin The Disk
2. Dream A Dream
3. The Center of My Heart
4. Dance Dance Revolution
5. Dam Dariam
6. B4U
7. Legend of MaxX
8. .59
9. Dynamite Rave

Dance Dance Revolution - Katsucon 10 Mix! We've made it to the end for a new start!

I'm used to it, he attracts lots of fangirls in his costumes. 'Kaiba! Can I have a hug?!?!' 'Wizard! Can I glomp you?!?' 'TAMAHOME!!!! I WANT TO HAVE YOUR CHILDREN!!!' Ok, the last one didn't really happen, but the point is I'm used to it.

Ranma- no DDR mix is complete without Butterfly! I vote for Dam Dariam too.

Studmaster
11-20-2003, 12:56 PM
B4U - Definetely need a Naoki Track on this besides DDR.

Legend of Max or Max 300 - Whichever one people decide is the best musically.

.59 - When it comes to DJ Taka this is his best "DDR" song IMO

Neko Cathy

Disagree- I love his "Tomorrow Perfume" song.

if B4U is added onto the list, make it the 5th mix EXTENDED version. I have the 5th and 7th mix (all Japanese versions) CD :)

I' think I'll try and make a cardboard or foam fake DDR machine for the photoshoot, Ranma suggested it

Neko Cathy

It won't be a real machine, o_o I don't suppose anyways. Probably a flat look alike. without ddr pads, or flat similar foam ones.

Neko Cathy
12-08-2003, 08:57 AM
Nononnono... dude, I wasn't expecting you to make a REAL DDR machine. :thumbsup: I thought you were going to make the entire thing cardboard and use something for the DDR pads like a crate lid or something.... it's cool that you don't have to make the pads though... maybe we can stick a boom box or something in or behind it that plays DDR music and such...? Just a suggestion.

Ohh... santa Rei comes back? Can I glomp you when you cosplay her?

Okay, I was thinking you ment such, but I was confused and tired and said anyways. :D Yeah, I'll use foamboard with duct tape reinforcement for the pads I believe, I could just bring real pads, but that is a lot more hassle, I could add velcro so I could just stick them on the back of the ddr machine when i'm done :D If only I had a LCD TV or something I could stick behind it so we could really use it to play DDR :cool: The music is cool, since we'll have it anyways for the photoshoot and group stuff?

Yeah, Rei :D glomp away, I don't mind as long as you don't knock me over.

Linkarroway, Oshi and Stud (as far as I know) went to Nekocon... Oshi would be the big DDR player from this group stepping before me (grrr... but I made best DDR female player in the area at the Anime USA tournament). I almost went... but VA beach is too far away from where I'm at.

As for a machine... are you asking about Katsu? Hah, that place is GHETTO and had the most disorganized DDR tournament ever held last year! They pimped out w/ soft pads instead because the metal ones broke XD Don't expect much good DDR at Katsu... most of the DDR stations (which were all DWI computer hook ups... most retarded thing ever) had crappy pads.

Thanks for volunteering to be akira btw... cuz I'll be yours and nekobun's (also going as Akira) Yuni. :p

If I mod my DDR pads, want me to bring them up if I can?

Neko Cathy

For the photoshoot? Take your time, don't hassel. Get your Emi costume done first, ok? Then worry about the cardboard DDR machine and then the pads. But if for the tournament... they DEFINITELY won't allow it. One of the things that screwed the tryouts was that they used up a LOT of time to taping down DDR mats, hooking them back up... it's too much of a hassel.

One thing we all got to do... get a DDR pad cosplayer. I dunno if we have one in the group.... but if we have one, he/she lies down on the floor and all the DDR character cosplayers put their foot on the pad and make it look like we're stomping on it or something... something random and stupid. :crest:

Ok... another thing to discuss... We got the time and day set to do the DDR photoshoot, but exactly WHERE do we want to throw it? For you last year Katsu goers, I was thinking about throwing it near the main event hall... because I'm getting the idea that most people are keeping their word and if so, we got a HUGE group, inculding to find where we can stick the DDR machine prop without people stepping or running into it.

Any ideas?
