AWESOME! Would be happy to have you either way, Asian or Nordic! LOL! I know how you feel, mine isn't done either! Between the two costumes, which one is more done than the other? Thankfully June isn't still for a long while! LOL!

Hello. :) I'm thinking of cosplaying Hong Kong for a day. (My friends may also be doing China and Taiwan, but I'm not sure if they've decided yet.)

Still deciding whether to cosplay Flying Mint Bunny at this gathering, or to cosplay the Kingdom Hearts gathering at the same time/day. But if you guys decide a different time besides Sat/day2 @11am, I'll be sure to bring my videocamera. ^_^

Sorry for the late reply. I had no idea the forum was functioning again and I kind of forgot about it completely! LOL!

I don't mind bumping the gathering time forward or backward by an hour or two if anybody else is on board for it (show of hands, please) ,but over all (not counting all the ninja lurkers) the attendance for both gatherings is looking kind of low which is kind of discouraging.... worse case scenerio you could probably hit one gathering right after the other when one of them fizzles out... (we're out numbered by the KHs so it'd probably be us)... depending how easily can you superman in and out of that Bunny costume? LOL!

Still open to the idea though! Anybody else?

Hey! It's great to see you again! I was wondering where you've been! I'm figuring that after lunch would probably be more doable for the gathering since pushing the hour forward might be a little too early in the morning for some people (I'm actually a 4am zombie, but I know that some out there don't wake up until like 10am- they'd probably miss the gathering completely).

Does anyone mind pushing the gathering back 1:00 or 2:00 in the afternoon? (show of hands... c'mon, I know you're out there!)

As for the panel @__@ Ironically I haven't heard anything about it yet.... OTL

Yeah, I've been a bit caught up this year sadly. College + a new job + fanime plans keep getting messed up so not much time to worry about the other cons I'm planning on attending.(and yeah thats what happened last year actually people came around like noon saying theyd slept in so they missed it).

Odd. I asked on Tumblr as well and theres nothing on the actual forums. I wonder what's going on. Speaking of me and my co-hosts should probably write up our advertisement to start circling for our panel...

Wow- it's like a phantom panel! Creepy! Maybe we should just go just to see what kind of ghost host is running the show! LOL!

So 2pm is good? Anybody else? (Show of hands? please don't be shy! Your vote counts! Speak now or forever hold your Pasta~)

LOL! If 2pm is too late for you, maybe we can bump it up to 1:30pm just to give a pinch more time? (feel free to protest)

Since I'm going to be in the panel/game thing this year as well, as Switzerland, I'll probably drop by if France and co. do.

I was Denmark (sailor version) last year, and in the panel (as Denmark) as well.

Not sure if we'll be able to make it, but if we somehow manage to, my group would come in the Chess!Hetalia designs. I'd come as either Mafia!Romano or Teutonic Knight!Nyotalia!Prussia.
For Chess we have:
Chess England
Chess Hungary
Chess Italy
Chess Belguim (own design)

Sorry for the late reply. I have been trying to register, but the site wouldn't let me. I finally did less than an hour ago.

There is a chance I can't make it to AM2 on Day 1, so that is out of the question. For Day 2, I might attend the Hetastuck panel from 11:00 A.M. to 12:30 P.M., so that time may be hard. I was thinking that we should have the cosplay gathering the same day as the Ask a Nation: Hetalia Panel, so there would be a higher chance of more Hetalia cosplayers present. That panel is on Day 3 from 2:00 to 3:00 P.M. There are also other cosplay gatherings I'm trying to attend, and I'm not sure about the times yet.

If I go, I'm going to be dressed up as a makeshift Taiwan.

Before or after the panel? I'm good for both (Noon for before, and 3pm for right after although I'm sure this may call for a location change. It's not hard to pick up a group of people and move them). I'm not sure of what other gatherings might be occurring during those hours either.

Does anybody else mind pushing the gathering back to day 3? Show of hands please! I want to have the date and time solid by this Sunday, but I'm willing to keep negotiations open until the 14th if need be. Please speak now if you think you're going to have a problem!

Last year we did it on the same day as the ask a nation panel. It was before the panel at the fountain, then we left to the panel.

I vote for Saturday @2pm still :/

It's still debatable if myself and a portion of my group can attend Sunday because of prior plans/work but we'd love to attend. There's always the possibility of having a gathering on both days though, if the OP doesn't mind hosting both days. If not I wouldn't mind stepping up for helping with the Saturday gathering. It's what they do for AX, a hetalia gathering every day.

The reason the panel and gathering were the same day was because I was hosting both, along with the Kuroshitsuji gathering the previous day, so I made it easier for myself and the other panelsists keeping them on the same day since it was a large group of us going large group cosplays.

Panels and gatherings at most other cons don't always manage to be on the same day though, if there's a gathering people really want to attend they usually change.

Personally, I'm free for every single day of the con, I'm just more concerned about losing people in the time change. I don't mind doing it on both days. Your help is appreciated if you can spare the time.

So it's looking like
Saturday 2pm and Sunday Noon (still open to tweak the Sunday hour backward if necessary. Any suggestions?).

Kurochi21 does a good job with China and Kugelmugel, so it would be great if she could be there. Right now, the AM2 site is down so I can't look up the schedule.

How long will the gathering last? I'm going to the Pokemon cosplay gathering Saturday afternoon. So far, it seems to be taking place at 3:00 or 4:00 P.M. If the Hetalia gathering is at 2:00 P.M., I don't know if I can make it on time to it. I guess I'll have to leave early. For Sunday, I'm not sure because the schedule is down so I don't know what events I'll be attending.

I am so forgetful. I forgot to mention that they still need an America, England, and Russia for the Hetalia: Ask a Nation panel Sunday morning. Can anyone fill in the roles?

Well, not counting all the unspoken lurkers, there doesn't seem to be a lot of people attending so my guess is that the gathering probably won't last too long (twenty to thirty minutes?). If you can jump in and out of your Pokemon costume fast enough, you could probably hit both one right after the other.

Tell us how Sunday will work for you when you can.

The schedule is finally back up. It looks like I can make both gatherings since there seem to be no programs that interest me.

You are correct about my costumes. I'll be playing a random Pokemon professor for the Pokemon gathering, so all I have to do is put on my white coat and remove the flower clip.
