View Full Version : cosplay.com group meeting?


Lyn

Hey, as there does seem to be a good amount of us going to this con and since it's coming up soon, I was wondering if anyone wanted to try to arrange an unofficial get-together during the con?

I mean, granted, we are going to probably run into each other throughout the con because it's such a small con (from what I've heard, this is my first time going) but I thought it might be nice to try to arrange a time and place some of us could meet up at and just hang out for a bit.

...or not. ^^; Just a suggestion. I'm usually very shy when meeting people, even if I've talked to them a lot online so I'm always nervous trying to get the courage to go up and say "hi" to fellow cosplay.com members when I see them at cons so I usually like to try these type of things in more chance of getting over my shyness.

I think it's a good idea! I haven't met alot of cosplay.com members and it would be nice to meet some of you guys. I was to shy at Otakon to talk to anybody and I was also hungry too. But I also have a habit of not posting much here either...I just lurk in the background.

As for time and place, i have no clue as i haven't been to Anime USA for like...3 years O_o;;;

if there's a photoshoot involved, make it a Saturday.

Ehh, Saturday's always busy, why not Friday night? Late-ish, like 10PM?

Lyn
11-10-2003, 03:12 PM
Well, this isn't going to be an official photoshoot or anything since Al is not going and I don't know if any of the big name photographers are going either. But I'm sure if any people have cameras, it would be cool to get some group pictures in as well. But I was thinking mostly for just a chance to say hi and such to everyone and do some little group photo if anyone has a camera on them.

Personally I'd prefer Saturday sometime since there a number of people that won't be going to the con on Friday but either day is fine with me.

There will be a Cosplay.com staff representative present for the photoshoot; Studmaster.

As for me, not sure if I'm gonna make it now. In fact, almost definately not gonna make it...

If only I was going to wear my Millie costume to AUSA, 'cept I got a YuYu Hakusho cosplay group and I'm Shizuru! But yeah, I'd like to meet some people from here, I know I met some at Otakon, like DigitalCactus(He probably doesn't remember me) but I never wrote down who I met, I certianly will this time though!

I'll be there Fri. and Sat. but I'll only be in costume on Friday. Saturday I'm wearing a gorgeous Sakura shirt that's too adorable not to show off ^^; Unless definite plans are made I probably won't show up for a shoot..I'm hosting a group of anime newbies through their first convention.

Studmaster
11-12-2003, 04:32 PM
Well, I might as well say that I am going to Anime USA, I will need to check with Admin to see if I can go ahead with organizing a gathering. I shall be back with info shortly.

Lyn
11-13-2003, 03:35 PM
I think we should do the photoshoot on Saturday since Friday is a bit iffy for a lot of people.

Any time is good for me. But does anyone by any chance know what times the costume hall judging is at on that day?

I've never been to the con before so I don't know what a good area would be so I'm open for suggestions. Around the Artists' Alley, as some of you suggested, does sound good since that's generally an easy thing to find.

I'm not sure if I had already said this, it's been hard to keep tracks of posts these days. But I may go to Anime USA, but only on a Saturday, due to money budgets. Must save moolah for Christmas and Katsucon.

BTW, nice Yusuke-neko avatar kitty.

11-13-2003, 04:23 PM

Well, yeah. Registration for the Masquerade doesn't close until 1pm on Saturday and you can't really register (as far as I know) until you get to the con anyways. But I was refering the hall costume contests. Which, as I recall, you just show up at the apropiate times at this room and fill out a form and such there.

luvnpeese
11-13-2003, 05:14 PM
Ya, there be a DDR Max 2 tournament. And it's at 2. So, will we go raid a resteraunt? Or at least the mall? *coughsuncoastcough*

ChichiriFreak
11-13-2003, 05:15 PM
On the website of Anime USA it said that the Saturday hall costume judging will be in the morning. the Times will be listed in the packet you get when your register.

Ohh raiding the resturant...sounds fun.

I'm thinking that noon would be a good time then. Because that should hopefully be after the hall costume judging that morning and before the DDR Tournament.

Oooh, raiding the mall would be rather fun so maybe if anyone wants to do that after the photoshoot, we can. ^^

ChichiriFreak
11-13-2003, 06:27 PM
Hmm..the mall isn't such a bad idea either. Either would be fine with me. ^_^. both seem just as fun.

Aquila
11-13-2003, 08:23 PM
I'd love to raid the mall, but my group probably wants me to stay with them, lol. At Otakon, I remember going to the Burger King across the street, it was filled with Otakus, only about 5% were..."normal" people, and they looked scared. And several times at BK, and while standing outside the convention center, me and my friends got asked what was going on!

11-13-2003, 09:24 PM
Yay! everyone going to hang out and eat together. This lil Neko boy just gonna tag along because he loves you so much! Hey speaking of Otakon, I remember sugesting I make a sign and give out massages to people who thought it was a good idea. But then after Otakon I hear people complaining bout how they were so sore from walking all day and wearing highheels. So don't feel bad to ask if you need a massage, I'd make a sign buy I'm lazy. ^_~ aren't I sweet enough to eat?

Is it US or Japanese version? And when are the tryouts? I'm planning to get to the hotl by around 9, depending on how fast Metro systems are. I wanna rock my body in Afronova in my Neko outfit like I did at Otakon... and get a 300 something combo going. ;)

<<You guys have so made my day :-D>>

You people are fucking brilliant. :)

<<Oooh, raiding the mall would be rather fun so maybe if anyone wants to do that after the photoshoot, we can. ^^>>
Tyson's Corner Mall is INSANE. Especially when holiday shopping is closing in. I think the resturaunt idea is better.

The mall is....I have No idea. But i DO agree Tyson gets really Crowded and..very hectic with the Holiday season. >_<.

So the Photoshoot is at the main entrance at Noon?

And I'll be in raiding As well!! ^__^

Hey ladies and gents, looks like I'll be going through some Technical Difficulties, I won't be able to make it early friday. Why? Cause I gots an exam at College I can't miss otherwise I fail. I hope I don't miss anything to grand. (What's going on friday anyway) OTherwise, when I get there (And it'll be late at night) I'm gonna get this Party Started!

Hey Neko Cathy, You just name the songs and I'll do the steps. Reow, well I aint much of a DDR'er but you've seen me dance at Otakon during your DDR photoshoot. Hey girl, you know any hot songs I can dance to cause I need a lil insipiration.

Lyn
11-14-2003, 09:03 PM
Ok, let's go ahead and say that the photoshoot will be at noon at the main entrance unless a lot of people have a problem with it or something interferes.

Now, about what to do afterwards, I'm not sure. The restaurant seems like the best idea since we'll all probably be a bit hungry around that time. Though the mall would be cheaper for food but I don't know how far away it is or how crowded it will be, just that some people who went before suggested to me that it's fun to at least go over there for a little bit.

luvnpeese
11-14-2003, 09:34 PM
Heh, apparantly we're being dropped off at the con... so if/when we go to the restaurant/mall, can someone give me and my friend(s) a ride? ^^;

Damn straight, you's a damn good liquid dancer. Hey um... I can bring in my techno/Jpop CD. I was told by most people I have the best Techno list.

<<Though the mall would be cheaper for food but I don't know how far away it is or how crowded it will be, just that some people who went before suggested to me that it's fun to at least go over there for a little bit.>>
I just checked the hotel's website and Tyson's corner mall is 2 MILES away! Pretty close... but still, I perfer the resturaunt idea.

Oh yea... don't mean to boast, but my combo record for Dead End has just changed to 336. If the tourny is running off a Japenese version, expect one hell of a show.

I'm gonna cast my vote against the mall idea.
#1 Some of us are only gonna be there 1 day. We wouldn't want to waste our time at a mall we can go to anyday.
#2 They have no good stores. Personally, the only stores I shop at are Hot Topic and Suncoast. Tysons Corner Center has neither of them.Why even bother going?
#3 We can sit down and relax at a restaurant. It's a lot friendlier and easier to hold a conversation. It's just alot niftier ^_^

ChichiriFreak
11-15-2003, 10:26 PM
Hmm...I do agree. Tysons Doesn't really have Many Shops to see....the only store there I go to is the music store that sells Anime dvds. and thats about it.

Lyn
11-16-2003, 12:18 PM
Well, if we end up being really divided on this issue, some can go to the mall while others go to the restaurant. Depending on which they prefer.

Now, with the restaurant, I haven't been in that area for quite some time and so I have no idea what's around there. Does any of the people that want to go there have any suggestions of a close and not expensive one?

Aquila
11-16-2003, 12:28 PM
I'm being dropped off too, and going to be with atleast 6 people, only 3 of us are from cosplay.com, so I dunno how things will work out, but I'm sure we can all go to a restaurant. Only one of us is a newbie to cons, so she might try to get us to stay, lol. So I guess the plan is: Friday, Noon, at the Main Enterance. If you see a big Yu Yu Hakusho cosplay group, I'm there! wh00t!

<<#2 They have no good stores. Personally, the only stores I shop at are Hot Topic and Suncoast. Tysons Corner Center has neither of them.Why even bother going? >>
My best friend works at that suncoast :) She might not be in on that day because she might go to AUSA. Let's raid Suncoast in our costumes! :D

But that's true that there's not many... "exciting" stores at Tyson's corner. Last time I was there was shopping for my prom dress a couple months ago... and then my dad and I aiding someone who cut their head open in the parking garage beneath the stairwell >_<

<<#3 We can sit down and relax at a restaurant. It's a lot friendlier and easier to hold a conversation. It's just alot niftier ^_^>>
That's true too... but what if a nearby resturaunt is at the mall? Hopefully there will be one closer or I guess it's a raid to Tyson's Corner.

<<So I guess the plan is: Friday, Noon, at the Main Enterance.>>
No, it's on Saturday because most of us can't make it on that day. :(

I think I'm going with either Phillip's or Ristorante Bonaroti just cuz I love crabcake and Italian food. I'll probably have like a $20 lunch budget. The restaurant we choose really depends on everyones' budget.

So, any suggestions?

I just called the hotel, and there are three resteraunts about a block away. Other restaurants need to be driven to :-p One's chinese, one's English, and one's Indian. He said all of them are excellent, esp. the chinese one. It isn't too expensive either.

It shouldn't interfere since the registration for that is like still open til 1pm Saturday and our photoshoot is at noon so I don't think you're required to show up for a few hours after that. Uh, assuming you mean the masquerade-ish contest and not the Hall costume contests, since those are Fri night and Sat morning. (I'm going to the one on Sat morning)

If not, I dunno what time I'll get to the con and register, and my groups Kuwabara and Yusuke won't be in costume, so look for a Botan(Or a giant Oar) and a Keiko and a Shizuru and a Yukina walking around with two strange looking guys O.o

Phillip's is alright and can be pricey. Ristorante.... I don't think I've ever ate there, but I LOVE Italian.

<<woohoooo Rainforest cafe! (sorry i'm being random o_O)>>
I've been there twice and it's not THAT great (other than I like to stare at the fishies and space out,.... neato...). They used to have macaws at the entrance you talk to, but they took them out. :( The Rainforest Cafe is very expensive and overly CROWDED that we would have to book reservations or wait for 30 mins to about 2 HOUR for a table (mostly crowded during weekends). Last time I was there, my mom tried to get a table and the wait was an hour and a half.

If there is absolutely NOTHING spectacular going on at Anime USA, I'll criuse the mall. But for now if we meet up at noon, I perfer to eat light and nearby so I don't miss out on the DDR tournament (again).

Speaking of Suncoast, I was at the mall last night and I bought my Trigun manga there. And in line, I was skimming through Animerica and there was two whole pages of Otakon pics!! And I was like, hey, I saw these people... and I know her, and him, and her!!! Ya, and the cashier lady was like, there were so many Yunas at Otakon. I was like, wow you went to Otakon? Nice. Heh, that was totally random rambling...

5 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!![/QUOTE]


i think it would be kinda funny to browze the anime section of sun coast in our costumes haha >.<

Well, I thought it'd already been said a few times before but I'll repeat again to make sure we're all on the same track.

The photoshoot will be at noon on Saturday at the main entrance. What we're going to do after that is undecided and I figure we'll just figure out if we really want to do anything together after that. Since I'm sure not everyone is going to want to go to the the restaurant or mall.

Oh, and I'll be wearing Kamijo (look in my costumes for reference) costume on Saturday so look for the big blue hat if you want to find me. ^^; On Friday I'm just wearing my Punk Cloud costume (see avatar).

<<No, Aura from .hack//sign. o_o>>

<<I still think we should go to that Chinese restaurant. Who knows, they may have sushi on the menu XD>>
Last time I went to a Chinese restuarant for a con (Katsucon), I ended up deaing w/ mental rehab people. This one lady suddenly yelped and ducked for cover right under my table from the social workers, who dragged her squealing ass out out from underneath. It was kind of funny... but hearing people scream in terror on the top of their lungs ruins my dinner :(

Oh yea, not all Chinese resturaunts have Sushi unless they offer japanese dishes. Chinese and Japanese aren't culturally friendly neighbors if you understand what I'm saying. I'm up for Chinese either way. General Tso's in my belly... :)

<<i think it would be kinda funny to browze the anime section of sun coast in our costumes haha >.<>>
I was thinking the same thing... but why waste time Suncoast when Anime USA has the same stuff they sell? O_o

<<It would be awesome! But yeah, actually chinese food sounds good, and most chinese restaurants have Sushi now, atleast most that I've been to>>
That actually depends... the chinese restuarants I've been to in VA had NO SUSHI on the menu.

As for costume line up... expect Raver Neko Cathy for the photoshoot. I'm traveling on the metro as her because it will be too cold for Yuni to be out waiting for the metro and the shuttle bus. Yuni will make an appearance for the DDR tournament and Raver for tryouts.

Yeah, on the one hand, there can be horrible quality Chinese food, but there are also some fine Chinese restaurants. I really have no idea how this one is though. There are two others if it sucks.

Expecting Time! Ok, these are my choices of travel. Either Amtrak Student price 75 bucks to get to D.C around 11:30. But having to take a Taxi to the con. Um, does anyone know how far Union Station is to the hotel I don't wanna pay another 75 for a taxi.

Other choice is GreyHound. I'd take a bus at around 9 and get there 10 in the mornind saturday. for 35 bucks. I prefer Train I've always wanted to go on a train.

Ki Kuru Kitty - you could take the train to Union Station, then get on the metro. You take the Red line going towards Shady Grove and you get off at Metro Center then transfer to the Orange line going towards Vienna/Fairfax and then get off at Dunn Loring and take the hotel shuttle bus. It's alot cheaper than taking a taxi. ^_^

=D cool I'll get to Vienna before taking a taxi to the hotel, no shuttles late at night I think. I hope this guys aren't anal about loud music, its not against the law to play music a loud is it? (in VA)

Well, my Aura costume finally looks decent, and I'm looking forward to meeting you all. *was tempted to say "ya'll"* Well, I would like to be in the DDR tournament, does anyone know when it actually starts, admission fee, criteria, etc...?
