I was just wondering who here plans to attend the first Oni-con in October in Houston! The website is so helpful and well-thought out ... I can't wait. ^.^

I am going as well I can not started a costume though. I am thinking of doing Auron form Final Fantasy X. Anyone else going to this con?

Scortia
03-19-2004, 06:03 PM
wow, thread is REVIVED! :p Anyway, my costumes for Oni-con should be :
Original Oni
ANBU version Kakashi (Naruto)
*himitsu desu* for the skit
and either a few costumes from A-kon and/or Rogue or Nanami or something o.o

I'm going with some friends of mine. So far it looks like I'm doing Zaku definitely because my friend is working on Dosu and my other one might do Kin. We will have a full sound ninja group from Naruto! ^^ So list:

-Zaku (definitely)
-Gaara(most likely)
-Kazekage(if I ever finish it)
-Shikamaru(i want to cosplay him again)

lol... we're shooting for our Naruto group for Oni-con too... there'll be a bunch of you guys at A-kon already so we put ours off. Anyway we have definites for Sakura, Itachi, Kakashi, Temari, Hokage the 3rd, Hinata.... I'm acquainted with folks who have done Kankuro, Shino, Orochimaru, and Sasuke (need to coerce them now), and I'm still tackling two in my group to do Rock Lee (He IS Rock too) and Kabuto (though we joke about making him be Hokage's annoying grandson). Blah... I may make a Naruto too by then if I wanna just go ahead and use my surplus of neon orange fabric. .. blah. ><

since i cant go to akon this year :cries!: i'm going to oni-con (even though my parents hate the traffic there) XD anyway i'm thinking of being my Sasuke, and Hinata costumes with me. My sister is going to be Gaara still and my boyfriend would go as Sasuke, also my friend would come as Orochimaru. Also to add i'm thinking of cosplaying Anko so we could get a full cast maybe for oni-con? :D lets hope. have fun at akon T_T

Just out of curiousity, how big is Oni-Con. By number of people or in comparison to A-Kon. I wouldnt want to travel a few hundred miles to go to a con with like 20 people, if you catch my drift.

Well, this would be Onicon's first year, but it seems like the staff and planners are trying to make it worth coming to.

I'll be coming as well, and (hopefully) bringing a few new costumes with me. I'm looking at doing amano Terra (FF6), amano Esper Terra (FF6), amano Leila (FF2), and maybe a Black Chii or have my Celestial Hikaru (Rayearth) ready to go. That's a lot, I know, and I probably won't get them all done, but meh. Hope so. ^^;;

Hm... Akon 15 was my first and since Onicon would be much closer, about how good is it? Anyway, I just think Houston should have something big, other than Dallas... Dallas always has the cons. =\

Me and Jonio are trying to head there since O-ChibiCon doesn't seem to be all that good. I'm thinking of cosplaying, and this would be my first cosplay attempt, to go as Luffy (red 01 shirt), Crazy 88 (if I can get a mask and sword), and Kuroko from Samurai Spirits/Showdown (granted I can make the costume). But I agree with Yusuke up there, I don't want to dive all the way down to Houston for a crappy con.

Side Note: Yusuke I was there with Jonio, we were talkign to Shino, your friend, when you walked up. You may not remember me, but I was in the pink shirt and shorts :skidude2: . Eh, you know.

Ooh! Ooh! I'm headed in for Oni-Con! I'm not going to try to put together an overly elaborate cosplay for this one, though. I'm planning on being Elena from FF7. It's as simple as a business suit and some gloves! XD

06-11-2004, 02:46 PM
I had been planning on going, but I got chosen for the cast at TRF, and Oni-con is on a faire weekend, so unless I can get that Friday off of work, I'm out of luck. >_<

Maybe next year... and good luck with everything, Cherry! With as many problems as I had organizing my roommates at A-Kon, organizing an entire con must be insane!

I don't think Edea will be worn again anytime soon in the NEAR future. I love the outfit, don't get me wrong, but I don't to "burn it out", so to speak. I'll definately be sporting some new disguises for Onicon ^^.

I was gonna be Elena for it and Maki for the other.

Yep. Oni-Con 1 is going to be the first first-year convention to have a japanese band, I believe. :D

Oni-Con 2, though I cannot say who, already may be having some even bigger bands come. :D It'll be gooood. Not to mention, Oni-Con 1 has a crud-load of other guests. ^^

Its to be a birthday partyish thing for me, as my b-day is the 20, two days away. So if ya see anyone in a Robin/Alice costume with balloons or such, say Hi. Please. I beg of you.

Oni-con will be my first convetion and as things are going my first costume should be ready well in advance. Guess I will have to think about a second one then :) My costume is still a secret for now but I might show it before the convention (I need to get a better camera anyway). I live in the Houston area but still 50 miles away so I might be staying at the hotel. Will just be easier than driving back and forth, I do enough of that for work.

I will be going as Kin, Itachi, possibly Haku (all from Naruto). My friend(milleniumninja) will be Tenten and Kisame. We aren't very far on our costumes, so we might do some others instead. Aiming for a full cast here, is there someone who isn't being done yet? We are really hyped about doing Kotetsu and Izumo, or Hayate and Genma if we can.

ZakuKitty
07-02-2004, 08:23 PM
My friend(Umino Lee) is doing Dosu and she might do Hayate as well. I am willing to do Genma as it would only require the thing to tie around my head. I will be doing 2nd Hokage Nidaime so long as I can get the wig and the contacts..as well as putting everything else together...:P

As always I am doing Zaku.

Hmmm, $89 for 2 nights, drive about an hour to get there and back each day, or just stay at a cheaper hotel nearby. Tough decision or maybe I will look into getting a roommate or 2 for the weekend. I drive an hour+ to work Mon-Fri but I dont know how tired I will be at the end of each night in order to drive home.

It's big for a first year con, though now I am wishing we would have bought even bigger since apparently everyone and their dog is going to Oni-Con. X_X;; WEE!

How much is the hotel each night with the convention rate?

89 for two people. You can have single or double beds. Honestly, I am just lying and saying I have 2 and am having four in there. >_>; They don't need to know my buisness.

If you feel like being honest, it's 10 dollars for each additional adult.

ahh i hope my parents give me a clear answer about going to oni-con.. AND SOON. if not the hotel will be sold out =( that makes me sad i like wondering around at night and not having my mom worry where i am because i'm in the hotel and not somewhere else X_x crazy over protective moms. do you know how old the person has to be to check out a room? because at akon it was 21 but i'm just making sure. is there a age limit? also like how many adults have to be in the hotel with a number of many teens? argh i want to go and frolick around the hotel as shugo. =(

Well, it's definately confirmed, I'll be there with my camera, and this time we'll maybe have two or three cameras total wandering around. We're gonna try to get as much action as humanly possible, unlike when my group filmed A-Kon. We got cool stuff, but it wasn't as informative of the full scope as it could have been. This should definately be different. We'll be trying to get footage of more guests of honor, and supposedly there will be a section roped off at the concert for photography purposes, and I hope I get a good open view!

A bunch of my friends are going together one of their moms is all for us going during school and agreed to be our chaperone. My parents might actually let me go now, they've known her for like 9 years. We live close enough to just pile everyone up in the suburban and drive for like 30 mins to get there every day.

And if you love Oni-con, please get a hotel room. It helps pay expenses required to hold a con and whatever is left over goes to make the next Onicon even better. :D Trust me, $89/nite for a hotel room at a con is, like, NOTHING. Akon was $125 a night, Ushi was $98 or so... if you share a room the cost isn't bad at all. I live in Houston and I still got a room.

I know how you feel. :lost: I used to be in marching band too. I played the flute and was elected first chair, so I had to attend every event. It's a total let-down to be deprived of something that you really want to go to. During Halloween we were going to dress in costume for the game but, the principal found out and said we couldn't. That sucked because I wanted to wear my InuYasha costume :waaaah: I'm still mad about it! Since I was also in color gaurd, I should have dressed up in my costume and run to the middle of the field while swinging my Tetsaiga aroud like a lunatic! (to aliviate some of my frustration)

My parents are quite lenient with me so they let me ditch school for Ushi-con! I stayed at my best friends' house the whole week end. (That's because the day before I had been picked to play the solo in our UIL concert competition)

Marching contest is really important though. I hope you make the right decision. Please don't mess up! You'll regret it! Really think about it.

Maybe you can leave early from the competition after you perform, or make plans to go to O-Chibi con since it's in Houston. Remember that there is always next year too!

Good luck! ^.^

I probably won't make marching band even if I didn't mess up.My bro says they're not gonna march a lot of people this year and I'm a freshman in the lowest band^^ Also, ever since I got braces I play worse than I used to... they didn't even bother to give me any music to practice, so everytime we play something I gotta look off of whoever's sitting next to me. Either way, I'm gonna have to show up to one of the football games with pink hair!

sure oni-con has amphiteater but it only sits 200 hundred before the fire marshal has to shut it down. Plus the location of Oni-con's hotel is farther away from houston then O-chibicon's. Also they aren't have any real contest with any prizes for cosplayer like kamikazecon or O-chibicon.

What con standards are you going by may I ask? Since when did cons compare to one another anyway? Does it matter how big the hotel is if it suits your needs? I don't seeing prizes mentioned anywhere...and this is obviously a petty nit-pinking rant...since O-chibicon is at a hotel less than five minutes from the Sheraton.

First the KKC thread now this. Just leave the negativity towards Oni-con somewhere else. Or go talk to yourself in a basement. I am attending all of all of these cons as well as many others.

Oni-con is gonna be great, regardless of wether it meets certain standards. Feh! Who cares if it's not like other cons.

Heck, I'm just glad that there is actually gonna be an Oni-con. Any one with malice remarks should keep their comments to themselves because there's no room for that anywhere in the anime fan community.

The same goes for everyone. Rude remarks that demean Oni-con don't belong here. And saying shut-up to someone, or all for that matter, isn't a nice thing to say either, no matter what the cercumstances may be.

Cmon people! This is about anime fans comming together and sharing ideas with each other. It's not a place to bicker and fight with each other.

I apologize, everyone.

<3. We chose our location due to the closeness of the Bush Airport. <3. Since we have many many out of town people coming, and so that Duel Jewel can come in with ease. Our patrons also enjoy the free shuttle service, that is a quick five minute ride.

I am SO SORRY guys. I didn't want this to spill over. ^_^<3.

Oh, and by the way, as head of cosplay for Oni-Con, I can assure we do have ROCKING prizes for cosplay. I'm having full trophies made and possibly plaquereds, with a certificate as well. And god knows what nifty mangas and stuff. ^_^<3. Just to correct that.

I've already informed the moderators of the hateful posts.. again. I am so sorry. I am particially responsible. I sometimes forget that certain people in the cosplay community can't handle free speech. Slinging arrows and direct -attacks- on people is just unacceptable, and if I have in ANYWAY insulted ANYONE, I am sorry, including to Menthu. <3.

I guess your right, there is no standards. Started comparing? When have we not compared one convention to another, isn't it human nature? Well I guess that if your hotel fits your need then that's good for you. I was just wandering if you will be in a larger hotel in 2006? I don't ever believe that I said how far O-Chibicon was from Oni-Con I just said it was farther.

Katsucon in 2003 had no Con Suite. Noone's head exploded, and nobody died. I promise.

Also, while Oni-con may not be in the middle of downtown Houston, it IS highly convient to the airport. Being that I am flying in, this makes me VERY HAPPY.

Anyway, you seem to have no interest in anything other than causing drama. While we may have our points of diversion on some things, I'd rather work together with the other cons to SUPPORT each other, not tear each other down. Let them at least have their con before you start declaring that they suck, alright? Otherwise, you're just making KamikazeCon look bad, by splurning all the crud to support them.

Also, a lot of conventions, especially smaller ones, or first year cons, hold masquerades, as opposed to CONTESTS for money. Guess what? Cosplayers still participate. I'd like to think, and from what I've seen it's true, that cosplayers participate in these events for the LOVE OF DRESSING UP, not because they're going to get rich.

:D I'm going to be coming to Oni-con! For definite!

Not only that, but I'm bringing at least 7 other people with me! :rockon:

I'll be cosplaying my usual jrock stuff. I promise one year I'll actually roll out an anime cosplay, but not until my sewing skills have improved.

Planned cosplays for Oni-con:
Imai from Buck-Tick, cosplaying Kurt Cobain, Uta PV
Tatsurou from MUCC, July Fool's Mate photoshoot.
Third, undecided cosplay.

I should also be sporting my Duel Jewel shirt, designed by Niki Broughton. (for you gamers out there, she did character design for the new game, Sudeki, that I've heard very good things about. ^_^)

Anyway, I'm excited! A con I can fly to, and stay at, without having to pay an arm and a leg! And NOT on a holiday weekend, meaning I can take the time off.

My friends are actually trying to rope me into doing a Nartuo costume too.. I am supposed to do Sakura, but.. X-o;; She's just so plain, and Naruto gets cool poses, and and.. *Cry*. I dunno.. We should make a Naruto Gathering on Saturday morning or something. :x

<3 I'll be there with other people. :bigtu:

I'll most likely do Nidaime if it's the official photo shoot gathering...<_<

I hope the spot where they stick photographers for the concert isn't half bad... I don't think people would like it if I came back with a poor shot to post on my site.

Well, I know they will likely have a press section set aside for 'official' photographers...otherwise, any pres that is there, as well as photographers for the convention, and for the band.

Other than that, it's catch as you can on pictures. They don't have a particular section for people just taking pictures for their own personal use. Taking pictures at concerts is kind of rough, though, as there is lots of jostling and random arm movements,and everything is so fast paced. Also, they will ask for you to NOT use flash, as it can BLIND the performers on stage...and it's very hard to take good, quality photos without flash, in the dark. I also find that it tends to take away from the concert experince, at least for me personally, as I am more focused on getting a good shot than having a good time.

I would suggest however, taking your picture to autograph signins. The boys of Duel Jewel are very nice, and quite willing and happy to pose for pictures. ^_^

Haha. Maybe we will see some Sudeki cosplayers at Oni-con. ^_^

I am thinking of throwing together a mini-masquerade on Friday of Oni-related costumes. :3 Like.. Anything demon-related or even original oni's. Scortia just reminded me of this, but we had talked about it on the boards. Anyone interested?



And amen to seeing Duel Jewel again. They've gotten SO MUCH better.

Anyway, you seem to have no interest in anything other than causing drama. While we may have our points of diversion on some things, I'd rather work together with the other cons to SUPPORT each other, not tear each other down. Let them at least have their con before you start declaring that they suck, alright? Otherwise, you're just making KamikazeCon look bad, by splurning all the crud to support them.

Also, a lot of conventions, especially smaller ones, or first year cons, hold masquerades, as opposed to CONTESTS for money. Guess what? Cosplayers still participate.

I was going to let this topic die out but, Hmm...if you insist.
What you say has some truth, but how would it "look" if right after another a has con posts info about themselfs they get nothing but flame and slander for two day (about 3 pages), on top of that the "staff" of the "opposing" con is the ones posting the slander? Plus as you may have or may not have seen I did already replay to moonglaive with a some what acceptable answer. I also must say after two days of slander, why would you be surprised to see a fanatic fan deciding to reply with their own opinions.

I have not slandered or lied at all. I stated one opinion and you totally freaked out. I already withdrew from that discussion, as it is indeed going no where. I have said my peace. My friend Xero has said it best, I believe. I was wrong to even point out such a very very FUTILE matter as far as size. I wouldn't have even said it had not a few of my friends IMed me about it. I support the KamiKaze Con, and I support O-Chibi as well (Which you said I didn't, which is funny concidering I am attending it, and will no doubt be attending the KKC as well, as my friends are interested. ). At this point, all you are doing is carrying on and on and making yourself look AWFUL.

Yes, I will be degrading to you because YOU are being RUDE to the cosplay community, that you are not even apart of. Are you even a cosplayer? Are you really just sitting here WAITING at the boards to threaten us and argue with us? Find something else to do. Maybe there is a bitter con attendee board you can join, where your exploits will be more appreciated.

MEH! Make loooooove not war. <3.


Now then.. Yeah. I think Oni-Cosplay would just have to be a tiny tiny event since not everyone will wanna make new demon costumes. Fluffy-chan ;-; Enter. Doon't be afraid. <3. ^_^ I bet everyone would love to see an Inu Yasha. He's a fan favorite! ><

I have a quick question, im new to these boards but im not new to the cons. I was wondering why if oni-con is doing so well, why they think they have to corrupt the other cons. While i was attending ushicon 2004, i witnessed what i first thought was a young boy dressed as tidus taking down a color flyer that belonged to kamikazecon. I know most of the people working for that con so i knew that this person should not be messing with that flyer. When i asked a few people around me that was also witnessing the act of vandalism, they informed me that is was the head of cosplay for oni-con. I was just wondering if any one had a responce to this?

DjPhReAksTyLe
07-30-2004, 07:07 PM
since when did all of these new people come on the boards to bash oni-con?

why the hell is this happening?

and why do people insist on trying to cause trouble??

if that is a serious question... take it to oni-con.com forums...

we are tired of drama here.

------------------------------

edit: Just an observation... Tyr is the name of the Norse god for war...
...
didn't Menthu say, "Menthu is the Egyptian god of war" ?????
just an observation.

Tyr
07-30-2004, 07:22 PM
Oh, and to be exact, Tyr is not the Norse god of war, he was the god of justice. Im not here to bash oni-con, or any other con. I just asked a simple question. If you want to be exact, Odin was the god of war.
