I know that FMA is a new series and it's not full exposed yet but in my opinion it's a great series....I was considering doing Winry from Full Metal Alchemist.....if you've never seen the series at least watch it, your doing your self a favor. If you know about FMA or just want think about group cosplaying it that would be great :D.......just add your thoughts to the thread and let me know... :chatah:

I'll be there as Ed, with maybe a mini-Al.

I think Oshi will be coming as Roy aswell.

I'm planning on doing a really quick Winry. Its going to be pretty ghetto... but whatever. I wanted to show my FMA love... but I don't have to much time. So forget those god damn purple pants of doom... I'm sticking to khakis or sweat pants :p

Any way cool u cosplay from FMA but i dont like copying other people that one reason why im not doing and AL or ED dont get me wroing i still like them :skidude2:

EvilMoogleQueen....I'll pm the other people that have said that they are interested closer to the con and ask what day they were going to cosplay a FMA character and work it out from there....and don't worry my Winry is bootleg at the moment...hehe....I need a wig.

Hikaru_Ayanami.....State Alchemists still fit the genre of FMA....so you can be apart of the group...if not just take some pictures if you want....just a few minutes wouldn't hurt.

I'm not going to AX...sorry... but I'll probably be at otakon.

I don't mind if there are a lot of FMA cosplayers... actually that is a good thing. FMA needs more recognition. ^^

I only discovered FMA while in Japan a couple of weeks ago, so I won't make it... but I am planning to put together a State Alchemist for the future. Debating between doing Hughes, because no one else will probably do him, and I'd have so much fun running up to people and insisting they agree with me that 3-year old in the picture is so adorable! ^_^

Also, I know of a friend who will be doing a Winry at some point--not sure which day though.

Sounds like a funny idea....it's a great running koke for the series...and i'm happy that hughes does it...it shows that not every state alchemist has to be so serious all the time.

Anyway is EvilMoogleQueen the friend that was going to do Winry? If so she has already responed....thanks for the info Avatrix :chatah:

Okay from what I found out on the AnimeBoston website is that they have a Clubhouse where group can schedule a time period and a room to meet a group. I can see how that can be helpful since the con will be very crowded and it could be a pain in the ass to main floor. This way everyone will be able to find every one else interested in FMA group cosplaying....and it might be a little calmer/ less noisy in the room where they have the clubhouse, this why we could all talk.

http://www.animeboston.com/events/c.../sched.shtml#cc

Does anyone think that is a good idea? If so then I have to submit a request for a time slot and the room. If the majority of you just want to meet up at the main area or some landmark and take a batch of pictures that's fine with at least me.

If you guys read this post then please write your opinion about if we should have a clubhouse spot or not. And if so what time is the best for you?
Thank you guys again!

PS...I also went on to a number of other anime/cosplay related site's forums and invited the cosplayers there to join the FMA group if there were going to AnimeBoston...and so far I've recieved some offers by doing that.

I think the clubhouse might be nice to talk, but we should try to meet on the main floor to get picture's taken as a group. ^_^;;

Nope, I haven't seen this friend on cosplay.com actually. I did just see her photos from AE7. Her Ed might be coming to AB, though I'm not sure about the group's Lust. Hopefully by Otakon we'll have a crew.

Thanks for the feed back about meeting on the main floor and having a clubhouse spot....although i have a feeling that if we meet on the main floor and then have to go to the 4th floor where the clubhouse is that someone is going to get lost or something. Then again the main floor might work...I've never been to Animeboston so I'm not sure how it is set up....it might work out better on the main floor rather than clubhouse since everone will be there already and didn't have to go serching for some room. Although i still have feeling that the club house will be quieter and we could just take pics up there. ....ah I'm so confused....but that's all of my feeling about the meeting for now.

Wait I was wrong.....one more thing...here are the people that have replied/thought so far of being in the group:
Catboi Blues
RX 03
Oshi
EvilMoogleQueen
Hikaru_Ayanami and his group of state alchemists
Sami
Avatrix and unnamed friend
and Alichan from the AnimeBoston forums
....so that makes roughly 12 people including me....so many people...it's so great!!

Yeah, like RX03 said, I'll be bringing Roy (or a generic State Alchemist, depends if I can get a wig or not...)

If you can think of what time/day you want to go that would be great also.

Flippy
03-25-2004, 07:53 PM
So does anybody else know what time/day they want to might want to meet....I need to ask for a time slot before it is to late.....just give a round about time/day...even that would help.

I turns out that my normal life schedule conficts with my cosplay one. I have to do visit a college that weekend since everything got switched around for me. There is no way for me to Boston after the college meeting and that means that I can't make it to AnimeBoston :lost: :sulk: :blubber:...
.....however I feel really bad that I helped form a FMA cosplay group and I'm not going to be there. I'll still help out as much as I can with the FMA get together though....like for example should there be a clubhouse time spot for it and if so, when?

Aw that sucks! We will miss you...

I think the photoshoot will still happen. There are enough people here want it to happen.

I don't think there needs to be a clubhouse spot... though it depends on how many people are going to show up. If its only a handful of people, we can always meet in the loby and hang out there.

I'll be cosplaying Edward, only I didn't have enough money to buy the wig... Thankfully my hair is blond right now (dyed for my Trigun skit) but it's short... oh well *shrugs* whatever works, right? ^_^ I'll be looking for you guys, hopefully I'll be able to make it to the photoshoot if it doesn't conflict with my panels. ^_^

^Having the right hair color help a hell of alot...Welcome to the FMA group!!!

EvilMoogleQueen~ I'll miss you guys too :blubber:...I wish I was going....I think I'll wear my Winry costume at AnimeNext.....
Anyway so I will not sign up for a clubhouse spot. How ever I the FMA group is going to meet everyone needs to figure out a time to meet, since some people are not going to be in the same costume all day long....so any ideas???? How about some time Saturday afternoon?????

Everyone that has shown interest in being in the group thus far:
Catboi Blues
RX 03
Oshi
EvilMoogleQueen
Hikaru_Ayanami and his group of State Alchemists
Sami
Avatrix and unnamed friend
Kiarrens

Flippy, I thought I PM'd you, but I guess you didn't get it. I don't have an FMA costume, I was just saying that I'd like to make one for a future convention. And my "unnamed friend" is in fact Alichan. Sorry, but I guess that drops you to 10...

04-05-2004, 12:56 PM
Avatrix: My PM had a bug and it just got fixed, never got the PM...but I'll still send you any info that is involved with the group so if you want to meet up and take pics or something...or just check the thread for up dates

Okay everybody when I get home later I'm going to send private messages to every body (about 10 peolpe now) that said they were interested in the group; just to clarifly some stuff....so yeah.

I think at this point it'd be pretty impossible not to conflict with other groups... There are quite a few. I think I'll be wearing my Ed costume most of the day on Friday, since it's pretty easy to move around in and is comfortable, as opposed to my other costumes, and I'd like something comfortable for the drive down to Boston. ^^ Plus it'll be funny to see Edward-kun as a panelist for the AMV 101 panel ~_^

Roy and I drew an alchemists' circle outside the hotel in chalk and got pics with that too, I've already got a couple up on cosplay.com but none of the group shots yet. Soon! ^^

I don't know, but I hope its mics. I'm not fond of prerecorded skits. Its too hard to get the timing right. And most of the time you just can't understand what anyone is saying...

I was the brown hair Ed n_n v. My hair is too dark to dye it unprofessionally(it would have came out orange-ish colored n_n;; ). I may get a wig for Otakon and the coat will have the slit in the back(it didn't at Anime Boston 'cause I completely forget about it). I'm still not sure if I'll be going to Otakon yet, but I really, really hope I get to go.

I just posted in the Otakon forums, should we start our own thread, do you think? I don't know how many more people we'll need. Is your Roy friend going? If so, maybe a couple more State Alchemists would be good to drag "IT" in (you know what I'm referring to ~_^). Also, as far as the mic thing goes, if we do need to have it pre-recorded I have a really good editing system and can make a great sound file for us. (I made our Trigun skit's sound and haven't heard any complaints about it yet...)
So, yeah. My email is Riikos_Knives@hotmail.com and my AIM is the same as my sn here. I have another idea for IT also but I don't wanna spoil it for anyone who doesn't know what we're planning ~_^

Yea, I can never understand what the prerecording say sometimes. I guess it depend on the quality of the sound and what equipment they use to record it.

Kiarrens
04-12-2004, 03:30 PM
Generally it's the mic quality. A lot of people just use a wav recorder and the microphone that comes with their computer, which is a BAD idea. For ours I used a headset microphone (of the karaoke revolution variety) and edited the sound using cool edit pro. That way, in case the recording was a little bad, I could play with the levels and normalization. Also, exporting as a wav to be burned onto CD is important. I think a lot of the AB2004 people used mp3s, the sound was pretty bad in a few.
