I think she meant either "fire or fierce comback", lol! ;)
So what are everyone's plans for this grand comeback to BAAF 2005!!?
Yay! Now BAAF 2005 costumes can be worked on with more effort and less rushing, since we do have quite some time. (^_^)
Since BAAF does have a lot of time to plan and everything, I do hope they make it a really great one!! :)

Ending the FFu Series....yeah that's right,the final installment....which promises to be the best one to date.

Simple. I rather go out on top than for the series to go to crap and go out on it's hindlegs. That and with FFu3's success and the absoulte awesomeness that FFu4 will deliver, it's gonna get harder and harder to top each performance.

Yup. While I do love the FFus, and Final Fantasy cosplay in general, I'm probably gonna stop masquerading although after BaaF 2k5.....probably continuing through 2k6, and call it quits from that point on....although I might do another skit between BaaF2k5 and "the end" should the situation where I can't pass a certain skit should arrise.

Hmm, I should make that Freya Crescent costume I've been thinking about then ^^. That is, assuming I could play a part in your skit ^^;;;

TheAnarCHris
04-20-2004, 11:55 PM
I make no promises when it comes to skit, seeing how all of my BaaF activites have been put on hold til next year. I'll see what i can do.

won't the 2005 skit be FFU5, since the # 4 does not exist? I think it should be.

Just let them wonder what they missed.

Yeah.....Seeing how it's kinda my franchise I was there that Saturday...stupid tech problems........would have made the skit somewhat bearable...although seeing Carrie pull a Janet Jackson of sorts was pretty freakin funny.

And yeah DD it's gonna be FFu5...because well, there is no 4.

And just for civilans who don't know what FFU is, it is "Final Fantasy Universe".

Actually the true meaning behind F.F.U. is all in the name. Drop the first "F" and you get the secret meaning.

This is what BAAF should be like next year:
BAAF '05' "The con where everyone is dressed up like a moogle and runs around and bumps into walls"
-the screening rooms will play "Doggy Poo" on repeat
-the guests will only speak gibberish
-karaoke will only allow one song to be sang........a DBZ song
-cosplay skits will be limited to 2 secs
-there will be no food.................you'll have to go canibal for this one
-no singing, dancing,laughing, talking whatsoever

I found this funny lol XD;. Although its not true at all lol.

BAAF is now "Mooglecon" *roflmao*. Guess we better start on our Moogle bodysuits *roflmao* There are gonna be alot of headless moogles at this Mooglecon (since the bodysuits will be so hot no one will wanna wear their mooglehead) lol XD;

KaineMaxwell
05-01-2004, 10:45 PM
Lemme guess, the message of Mooglecon will be delivered by Mognet as well?

We have a scifi/fantasy con here in December XD. I went to it last year. It was..........AWESOME!! They had alot of anime stuff in the dealer room and they had the chairman of Otakon there, and a bunch of other anime related peoples. And you could do skits and they had an anime mixer where we watched various animes and got tons of free anime stuff *_* (including a dvd with the first 2 epis of Fruits Basket) I dropped them a guest idea for this year but anyway it rocked and I'm definetely going again this year. My friend and I got paparazzied since we were the only anime cosplayers ^^; Everyone loved us lol. And the Philcon people said they wanna get some more anime people involved ^^.

Oh no.............THE MOOGLES RUN UPS NOW TOO?! NO!! *roflmao*

Run, yes, drive no. The moogles let the Grunties drive the trucks around, while the moogles sleep in the back, drop off the packages and fly off. See Neoangelwink's signature for proof.

gmgr group --------

aya - me
yura - miya~kome

thats pretty impressive. I guess if i sat down for a continuous block of 3 hrs, taking notes and practicing I could have it down. I'm doing it in chunks of time, maybe thats y its taking me longer. hopefully when u watch our group go up on stage you will think we did a good job with it ^_^

Ok I totally should not have just ate pure sugar O_O.......I'm so friggin off the wall now XD.

it gets frustrating to learn at first, but if you break it up and write down the moves, you'll get it. Seek doesnt do too much really, so you dont have to worry about much but air guitar strokes XD unless u actually have a guitar

haha! actually that may be a good idea just to have with you, its still a prop lol. Just buy a blue one and pretend to play it however seek does in the video. ignore the individual scenes with him, because we're going to be staying in the positions where you see all 5 members on the flying pads. the only two of us that are going to move is our yura and me, aya, during Lida's rap. We were thinking about getting a blown up picture of *lida* to stand up during that part since chances r low we'll find someone to do it XD

After AXNY and BAAF in 2002, BAAF announced dates for 2003, 2004, and 2005. Those quickly went out the window when 2004 didn't happen, but apparently ANN hasn't updated their list. (I believe they still listed 2004 as well.)

Meanwhile, check out this news article:
http://www.anime-cons.com/news/article.shtml/114
John O'Donnell of Central Park Media, one of the organizations responsible for Big Apple Anime Fest, has informed Anime-Cons.com that he is "unaware of any plans for BAAF 2005 at this time."

I don't know how much more of an official announcement you'll ever find.

I also attended BAAF 2003 (and 2002 and 2001), but I've always found it to be lacking something. It's just so Industry-oriented compared to some other shows.

TheAnarCHris

Yar, with BaaF's death, I kinda lost some interest in cosplaying...I mean BaaF was the home con, and there's just some things it had going for it that cpns like animeNEXt, whatever the hell shoujocon is suppose to be called now, and even the mighty Otakon can never fill. Maybe it the memories, the fact that BaaF 2003 was the only con I actually worked for and did other things that were illegal (like throwing a party in the game room after hours..), but..I dunno....now I'm getting all wishy washy.

But I've decided to end the FFU cosplay series peremantly as of BaaF's (and from the way things are going for them, CPM) demise. It had a good run thought, winning awards for 2 out of the 3 years it existed...or two for two if I pretend AXY never happend. And while there's a million things I've found untrue on this thread regarding BaaF and how it was ran and what have you not, that someone should be blasted for, I'm just gonna let it slide for now, until I'm filled with alcoholic rage and stumble across this thread again......


PIKA PIKA!

I have so many fond memories of BAAF, and hurts me to see it end, there was just something , more personable about it as opposed to Otakon, which as a whole left me somewhat unfufilled, oh well at least there's still Anime Next

Wah! I hope it didn't die b/c in mid 2003 I was planning on going to the 2004 one for the first time, but then they had to cancel it.
