Since AZ is finally over, I like to recognize and give shout outs to these peeps:

AJ2: thanks for rooming! There's bowling in Tekken? WTF?

Maaku: Wassup? Sorry Oshi, Link and I made you sleep in the chair. No you shouldn't think about riding in Link's car. Ok, you got me owned in the little DDR match. Don't run away from the dance!!! Come back, I want you! :O You're still going to be my summoner for Otakon, right?

Leilani: My HOMEGIRL! Thank you so much for putting up w/ my ass on the plane ride down to North Carolina and back up to Maryland... AND FIXING THE ROOM TOLIET BRIEFLY!! XD I wanna steal the airport sign saying "this section is closed." M&M Final Fantasy characters rock! Everything always breaks in NC, this state is cheap while Maryland is ghetto like a mother fucker. You slept through my DDR tournament, ah ha. Honestly, you don't want to ride in Link's car. We should come back to AZ and harass the little normal North Carolina people again.

Lyn: REPRESENTIN DC MARYLAND YAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY!!!

Oshi: I had you so fricken CLOSE in that DDR Tournament. OMG... OMG 1 PERFECT AWAY and the crowd was going OMFG THAT GIRL IS ONE CRAZY DDR PLAYER OMFG!!! @___@ grrr! Thanks for donating the metal pad. Sorry that the man in a bath towel with nothing underneath was dancing on your pad. :( And Sorry that my boyfriend had to tackle you in bed and I got a picture of it. I am the Oshi mobile backseat rider!! And also... I want your Naruto doorag headpiece thing and I look ghetto fabulous in it. Too bad I didn't get a picture of it.

To my crowd who watched me perform in the DDR Tournament: Thank you for the support! I enjoyed dancing and shaking that fine ass for you ;)

The people who I competed against in the DDR tournament: Those pads really sucked ass. Thanks, it was a great game. I felt sorry for the boy that was sacrificed to me. MAN VRs. BEAST (neow)

To the Ilpalazo cosplayer, who I watched playing DDR and hit the walls w/ his large shoulder pads while trying to get out of the Gamer's room: X'D :crylaugh: :rofl: That was just so fucking great. Funniest shit I've seen in Cosplay history. Too bad I left my video camera back in the room.

DJ Ranma: One word: POKE THE BEAR! XD

Kao: Thank you for the M&M's and the giant pixie sticks that make me go fucking insane. I will post pictures of mine and Leilani's creations on my Cosplay.com gallery. That drunken guy w/ the bathrobe... what a dipshit, but I got him on camera. You are a sexy bitch... love you too (http://img35.photobucket.com/albums/v106/nekocathy/nekokao.jpg)

Studmaster: it was great hanging out with you. Thanks for watching me play DDR. Good luck w/ that girl! YOU CAN DO IT! : O

Becky: ... KITTY! Yes, Link and I behaved... but I plan on violating him some day. Thanks for the beer even though it only was a couple of sips :3

Drunken Bathrobe Man on Thursday night: Ah HA you got caught by security! Thanks for putting on a show for my video camera.

Sexy Asian photographer: you are a future porno director. Can I please hump your leg?

LovelyAngel: Sorry we didn't get to talk much. It was nice meeting you.

That dude Leilani and I met who draws Tribal artwork: thanks for giving me ideas on how to draw tribal tattoo artwork! You are da shizznit. And thanks for giving me an art piece for free. YOU ROCK MY SOCKS!

Pookie: Your DJ skills at the rave are the shit, yet I think you played better music on Saturday than on Friday.

finally..

Link Arroway: Ryan, I love you more than anything.:heart: Long distant relationships suck, but we're hanging. I didn't want to leave NC because of you... kidnap me please? Thank you for the free room and everything. It meant a whole lot. I enjoyed the cuddling a lot... I treasure that. Haha, I gave a BJ pose shot in the hot tub w/ you (http://quadrain.classycutssalon.com/animazement_2004/images/DSC01450.jpg). REBEL COSPLAY SWIMSUIT EDITION! (http://quadrain.classycutssalon.com/animazement_2004/images/DSC01449.jpg) I had a damn good time with you at AZ even though your hometown sucks. RALEIGH IS BUMBLEFUCK AND EVERYTHING IS BROKEN IN NC! XD My dc area cons have fast food joints that are a block away insteads of a mile. :P Don't worry about the DDR tournament... those pads that you were on were broken like shit that EVERYONE was failing on them (even the best ddr players couldn't pass songs on it). So sorry that they made you go up first... Um... you are a scary driver and I AM taking charge of driving us to Otakon since I know how MD/DC/Baltimore traffic goes. Say thank you to your mom for giving us FREE food and stuff cuz that rocked. I will see you either before or at Otakon... but this time I will kidnap you. ... just you got to come up to MD for that to happen.

To those I've missed: see you next year maybe? Or get your asses to Otakon.

AJ2: White or not, you are still a terrorist =D And yes, that was a 180 ;D almost.. Damn confusing airport roads.
Maaku: You are going to kick Oshi's ass at DDR XD And geez, you're tough, I grabbed you while you ran off and you pulled my whole body weight along as I tried to pull you back.
Leilani: Thanks for coming along and keeping neko company. And you are good at organizing all that chinese order =D
Oshi: Thanks for coming, sleeping in the same bed as you, saying you loved me, and Oshit to top it off, .. just hilarious =D
whoever ran the AZ Game Room: Please organize your damn shit, and suck less. No excuses.
DJ Ranma: Hope you dont forget your camera in the future, sorry I couldnt lend you one, I ended up not even bringing one..
Kao: Sorry I was mad at you for being so hyper in the room Thursday. It was fun hanging out Sunday after everyone left and feeling as if the con was going just a little longer. Free boxes and box fights are great. Thanks for the sushi! and keeping AJ2 and I company some Sunday night.
Studmaster: You are a brother =D It was cool to see you again and hang out, and one can really ride you =D You broke Canadian's record for longest person to hold Link on their back while running around a con.
MinakoKitty: Did you guys have problems affording the room? or ever find someone else to stay with you? Your cat was really cute, but AJ2 liked to hog its attention. Thanks for letting me borrow costume accessories at Katsucon and helping out =D
Quadrain: Thanks for leaving all your crap in my room :P haha just kidding, thanks for the BAWLS and the WiFi adapter =D it was fun racing you down I-540 Thursday on the way to the airport.
FarmerBob: Where were you hiding all weekend? >:3
Tomo: Sorry you got delayed apparently and I didn't run into you that whole con did I? X_x
Pookie: Nice DJing, you completely rocked compared to Phil, or whatever his name was, I think. We went and checked his out and left, what the hell was he playing? And what was that on the screen, that wasnt even Japanese. Sorry they wouldnt turn down the house lights Friday but it rocked Saturday once you started.
CCR Peeps: Nice meeting the new people and friends, and sorry for those of you who missed the photoshoot. Apparently someone took down the whole listing things so all the shoots were disorganized. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at the next event.
AZ Staff: Thank you for FINALLY making Cosplay videos available.
others: Sorry I missed you, a lot went on and I'm still winding down now.. Thanks to everyone who chose AZ over AMA and PMX :D

NekoCathy: Thank you so much for coming down to Animazement. You made it awesome, I love you more than ever and its hard being apart from you. I hope that I'll be able to come visit in the next few weeks. Just seeing you was so heart warming. I loved cuddling with you everyday and night. I wish our time together lasted longer. Hopefully I'll get to show you Raleigh isn't as ..empty.. :P as you think and I'll be a better driver next time if you let me. I could say it was pretty bad luck to have things keep breaking, especially the toilet. Yet, toilet broke twice at Otakon too, and so did the escalators :P And well, cars break.. That doesnt have anything to do with NC >_> Unless its Oshi's hubcap. :D Thanks foir wearing your Yuni costume again and doing some more Yuri, I'm glad it came out pretty well on camera this time :D AZ its self is kinda remote compared my most things, oh well. I still love the place. I'm glad you did good at the DDR tournament, nice job on Oshi in the first round of you two, that rocked. :bigtu: And it was quite a show to watch. Sorry the suprise didn't work out, hope I can make it up to you. I'll see you soon. :heart:

To everyone there For not killing my younger brother for his golden shopping cart of space-taking-ness.

To everyone who was waiting in the cosplay room for keeping things amusing while we waited. And for joining in when I started the '99 bottles of beer on the wall' song. (Which morphed into 'sake' about 3 or 4 bottles in, when I and a few other people realized that would be more amusing and appropriate. ^_^).

To everyone who clapped at our timewarp skit , despite the fact that the DJ's weren't looking the first time Magus turned around (which was the cue to play the music), and cut the song off too soon. And despite the fact that we weren't doing the dance very well. :rolleyes:

I'm sure I can think of others, but I'm somewhat sleepy at the moment. ^_^;...

EDIT: Mouse of Justice , for finding my friend's costume adorable. :toothy:

To Our Sexy Asian We love you for the case of BAWLS man! And thanks for taking so many pictures, as my camera got busted after about 4 hours on Friday ><

To Farmboybob You never wore your Cactuar!! We wanted pictures with you ><

To everyone who congratulated the Tonberry King on his costume I will sound really stupid for saying so now, but I made that, and was more than a little pissed that i got no recognition, and am taking recognition now. Thank you for liking it. :thumbsup:

To Chase I never got to try on your skirt! >< I will have to stalk you over the summer to get it! BUWHAHAHA!!

To all the artists in Artsit Alley that I hung out with at 3am I love you guys! Thanks for the freebies :3

To the Amarao that was also in the artists alley Thanks for the long talk when bob was playing DDR with Shoujo, and I will be sure to keep watch for you next year! :3

To the CCR people that I met at the shoot You must have not went to the zoo... but I hope to see you at the next meet up and to talk with you more :3

To Shoujo-jojo I will dance more with you next year, and the year after, etc, etc!!! Bob will too it seems... You were great fun, and you should make a chocobo shirt XP

to Omittchi For the Caffiene Party, and holdoing the BDay party in your room too!

To Nixxer It was great lurking around with you in the Dealer's Room looking at yaoi XD and at the raves, and being with you in general!

to anyone who witnessed our elevator music I hope we didnt tramatize you too much XD

to those who got stuck in the elevator with us Dont blame it on us! We were'nt the first ones to get stuck in that one! But we all survived, and we could have eaten the pizza guy......'s pizza if we had to XD

We the spatula ninjas give a special shout out to:

Margarette - The kewlest staffer at the con! we luvs you

Chii-girl - For keeping things fun and interesting even though you hit us very hard with your shoes for turning ninja. we luvs you too.

Kaji and his Pirate Minon - For all their crazy polls and his leap frog-ness. Very funny and also for your karoke song.. we were in the front row so we could tell you actually COULD sing that song VERY well.. but nobody else could tell.

Lola (For those who don't know.. Girl with HUGE FRIGGIN WINGS) - for holding our place in line soooooo many times when we had to run off and take pics and such.

Pocky donators -THank you for your yummy pocky that we got after working so hard at being ninja.

Art Auction Con guy -For being so nice at every con and totally selling our artwork as though it was gold.. and even though he messed up a little.. he offered to pay out of his own pocket. HE ROXORS!

The people we ran into at Wendys on sunday - TO the shirtless bishi and his peoples for talking to us and then sorta singing with us during the bohemian Rhapsody and freaking out the people who worked there.

Cosplayers in the cosplay waiting room -for totally staying on pitch during all the songs (very strange .. four part harmony and everything) and for telling us they thought we would win in the contest. We were also the FFIV people in very shiny detailed costumes.

(I can't believe I forgot this) To the Communists! - for getting inside paper bags and hanging on a luggage rack thing and making us all try to figure out what the heck you were and who was in the bags, and for totally staying in character and making me with my brother had come because he would have played along with you... and because your skit was the funniest thing I experienced at the con... YES.. even funnier than the Trogdor Music Video.

And to everyone else at the con for making it one of the best cons ever and just being soooo nice all the time and stuffffffs!!!!

Mr. Ed AKA Teknomonkey, Star Angel, The Red Ninja, Prof. Farnsworth, the shaggy haired guy, our ninja in training, Megan-chan, Tyson's crew, Hentai Pope, Gary, they guy with Makers Mark flask, Ranma, Roller girl, and everybody else I forgot to mention, it was real fun!

Omittchi, glad I got to stop by your Caffine party for a few. Hope the tea was pretty fresh.

R. Kelly, you are now a con legend. That funny story will be laughed about for a long, long time.

Hmm....Lets see who it is that I have to thank...........Oh yeah I remember:

DJ Ranma: DEFINATELY HAVE TO THANK YOU FOR THE ROOM! Without that me and Staan would have slept in his car(seriously). You were extremely cool, especially with your moogle skit that you did. Hope to see you next year.

Studmaster: Perhaps it was some type of strange universal thing that led you to be sitting outside when me and staan got there friday(probably not). But without you we might never have found who we were rooming with, and I still think that your sword was very cool. Peace till next year!

Our third roommate (sorry but I can't remember your name PLEASE FORGIVE ME!): BIG TIME THANKS FOR LETTING ME INTO THE ROOM WHEN I CAME UP WITH THE SECURITY DUDE...Sorry for waking you up though...Till next year.

Manuel (Padawan): We had fun at both raves and hope to see you next year, but you better work on your skills!

Group who did the Angel Sanctuary skit(sorry can't remember your names FORGIVE ME PLEASE!): Your guy's skit was AWESOME!!!!...It was really cool meeting you guys when we were at the rave. PASS THE GLOW STICKS!!!! hopefully till next year.

The twenty-three people who gave me a hug when I wore my "Give me a hug and I'll do a trick" sign: Thanks for the hugs and I hoped you guys enjoyed my tricks.

The group of people from the cosplay line: THE BACK OF THE LINE ROCKED!!!! :rockon: That was the best ride I have ever been on, hopefully we can do it again next year.

Staan: Finally to this guy, without him I wouldn't have gotten to AZ in the first place(How fast were we going on the freeway again?!?!?). Thanks for holding my wallet so I didn't spend all my money at once, your like a brother and so all I can say is thanks and that I CAN'T WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!!!!!

Anybody else: IT WAS FUN!!! CAN'T WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!!!!

Hmmm... shoutouts shoutouts shoutouts

My Friends and Roommates - you guys kicked asss.

Anyone who hugged the Squishy Meilin - Thank you for making my friend the happiest person alive! I wonder if anyone still has their receipts I made....

Shoujo Jojo For throwing the impromptu party in the artists alley which kicked so much more ass than the rave. If it wasn't for Bohemian Rhapsody I'd have never been drawn in

Everyone who asked if the car from Philly that was all painted was ours - you all kickass for recognizing and appreciating our handiwork. you should have seen some of the looks we got on the highway on the trip down and back

Our Cosplay Line Buddies - Only line buddies can make 2 1/2 hours chillin in line worth the wait. Cheeseburger for the starving otaku? Who would think that giving food away would be so hard.

All of the C.com-ers I <3 you all!!!!

I didn't stay overnight at the con and I was stuck in the Artist's Alley section for most of the day so I didn't get much of a chance to mill about and meet people (not that I'd be able to remember their names even if I had.) Anyway, here goes:

To everyone who bought my tarot prints and cards at the Artist's Alley. Thanks for your support, and for providing me with enough money to put new tires on my car (and to pay for the gas I'll need to drive it back to the great frozen MidWest.)

To everyone who dropped by my table to chat with me, and who seemed genuinely interested in my work Thanks for keeping me entertained through the long, slow hours I was in Artist's Alley...

To Ed the Security Guard (I'm not sure if his name was Ed by the way, but he looked like an Ed, so I'll call him Ed. Thanks for watching over my stuff in the Artist's Alley when I went to run the 1000 yard dash back to my car to grab something I had forgotten. And thanks for keeping things generally lawful and orderly.

To the poor artists a few tables down whose car broke down while they were at the con. I feel for you, seeing as how I faced a massive car repair bill myself a couple of weeks ago that threatened to keep me stranded here. I hope you got home safely. (By the way, if you DID pay 800 dollars to get your clutch replaced as you said you did, you were ripped off.)

Kevin Lilliard, the fansview.com guy For not only taking the time and energy to cover this con AND one on the west coast in the same weekend, but to stop by my table, to actually recognize me from a con we both attended last year and to say nice things about my costume. Then you were nice enough to buy a card from me. You're a class act all the way...

To everyone who attended my armormaking panel Thanks for not heckling me when you saw that I was obviously not used to public speaking. And thanks for asking intelligent questions and for being a pleasure to talk to.

To the people running the art show. To Xav, the guy doleing out the money and that other lady with him, who, when they saw that I had been stiffed by a bidder who had bid 45 dollars for my prints but who had then walked away without paying for them, offered to buy them from me on the spot. Thanks! I am forever grateful. You helped redeem my view of this convention, its staff and of the entire human race in general.


And now, a curse..

To Steven Y. the man who bid on my pictures and walked out without paying for them. May your blackened soul forever twist in the fetid, flame-scarred afterworld your foul deeds condemn you to. You are my mortal enemy, and the mortal enemy of all that is good, pure, righteous and holy in this world. You pulled this "bidding but not paying" shit at last year's con, didn't you? The art show staff are on to you, buddy. You're blacklisted, pal. So don't even bother coming to next year's con. It certainly doesn't need people like you around, acting like assholes and stirring up trouble for other people. Just stay home.


Whew... Oh, and a last thanks to everyone who took my picture, who let me take THEIR pictures, and who were generally polite to me. Hats off to you.

Wheeee, Animazement rocked! Here's for shoutouts... (sorry, I don't really know most of these people's names, just who they were XD)

Sasuke! (My friend Matt... there were TONS of Sasukes) - Alright, well I'm the one who brought you to the con, so yeah, but you had one of the best Sasuke costumes there, so yeah!

Angel Sanctuary Group - Well, I didn't get to know you all very well, and I really wish I could've talked to ya more, but needless to say, you all amused me very much. Twas fun recording you all, too. How long were you guys on that couch? Crazy drunk kids... (bwaha, you know what I'm talking about) XD

Gaians - It rocked meeting you all at the Gaia meetup on Saturday! Good times, good times...

Moogle - Awesome costume. And, late Saturday night in the Artist Alley, I told you to dance, and you did! That rocked. XD

Spatula Ninjas - Funny! Me and my friend were constantly watching you, trying to figure out what you were going to do next.

The Voting Pirate Guys - Haha, darn pirates! VOTE NINJA! >_</

Communists - You killed my father!!!!! T_T

Nova - You let me use your pens and markers for my sign! And you were from Gaia! Awesome drawings, too! \^o^/

Guitar Guy - You tried to help me figure out how to tie my Nightmare tie. AND YOU PLAYED THE CHOCOBO SONG! XDDD

I guess that sums most of it up...? If I remember anyone else I'll edit my post. :/

Neko Cathy - Represent, yo! ^_^ I'm so glad that I was able to make it after all. Barely did though. lol

TeRRaFLaMe - You were the camera person?! ROCK! And I have no idea how long we were on that couch. We did get up...occasionaly...honest! And on Sat we found new places to congregate. But dude, we had so much fun just on that couch. And thank you so much for the file of us laughing our asses off. It was quite amusing. ^^ I was the one in the top hat, the one non-AS person on the couch.

Studmaster - You're as awesome as usual. ^_^ For a while, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to find you since you were nowhere in sight for part of Friday but glad I did find you and that I did get to hang out with you on and off throughout the con. And yes, Otakon this year is going to rock so much!

Voting Guys - Pirates...Ninjas...who cares...its all about the Angels! Mwaha! Really want to find out who won the yaoi/yuri vote though.

ShatteredSunset & all my AS crew - *SNAP* Woosh!
I love you guys. ^_^ I miss you already. lol

Tea Party People - You guys were all so cute and the photoshoot was fun...even if it was insanely hot being out there in all that black. ^^;

To All Those I Wacked With My Hat - Sorry! ^^;;; I keep forgetting out wide that thing is and so it can be very hard not to smack someone with it. Especially got to apoligize to the Sephiroth cosplayer that was next to me in line for the Hall Cosplay because I think I hit him with the hat like a godzillion times. x_x And for all those that gave me compliments on the hat, thank you! ^_^

Rosa and Cecil - I'm still in love with your costumes. *_* They were amazing!

Ack, I met a lot of people but like half of them I don't even remember the names of and I'm not even sure how many cosplay.com'ers I met since I kept forgetting to ask people if they were on the site or not.

Mako-san and Kas : Thanks for everything. As usual you guys made a great con better. You guys rule and I can't use just any normal word to describe it. So I will make one up Supersplendiferous.

Nixxer : Wow my cosplay partner in crime. I am glad we got second place in Novice. Plus I can't wait to see the skit from the DVD we got. You did a wonderful job leading me and staying in front.

Faust the VIII : Very good costume and I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to you more.

Liz-Maru : You had me cracking up so much at the panel. I have to say thanks. You did a great job on Clair.

Archelon : It was cool to meet you good job on the cosplay.

w00t! Animazement rocked! It was my first con and it kicked ass. I'll definitely have to cosplay next year. Something sexy like. I did run around Saturday with a ref shirt on and wielding a handicapped parking sign so a 'word up' to any peeps who saw me. There were a bunch of excellent costumes. The Angel Sactuary group rocked especially...as well as the male Go Go from Kill Bill (dubbed Guy Go by one of my friends :D). I just wish the guys who were doing the Ninjitsu panel would have shown up. I guess they were showing off the true essence of being Ninjas by not appearing at all :( Hoez0rz.

Yay, my turn for shout-outs! As of yet, none for me, even from the sake ninjas--you guys call yourselves my friends...-_- I should cry. But I won't.
-To Steven, Aaron, and Chase- for putting up with all that drama this weekend, I love you guys. Next year will be better!!!! You can all room with me.
-To Steven and Laura- the "coolest people ever" award goes to you guys. Thanks for letting me crash Saturday night and for the late-night McD's run. Hope to see you both next year, with yet another amazing costume!
-To everyone who recognized me even without the DDR Faery costume on- I feel so loved. ;_;
-To the Ninjas- Drama sucks, you all don't. XD
-to Kilayi, Sara, Sabi, and Bob- the poster was awesome! Thank you guys soooo much!
-to SG- one word. TENTACLES!!!
-To Ed- I'll miss you till next year! Better sound system at karaoke next year, right?
-To Bishie- I love you sweetie, and I wanna see you more next year!!!!::glomps::
-Chiki-chan-who DO you think you are?? :3 Only the most crowd-pleasing karaoke doll ever! You and Hannah and everyone rocked. See you next year...
-To Chase- You have been the best friend a girl could want this weekend. Not only were you supportive through all the crap that happened, but you made me laugh and found me a place to stay Saturday. Hope to see you soon, love you lots.
-To all you other people- my memory sucks, but I'll find something to say in my journal!!!!
Oh, yeah, and to everyone who attacked/glomped/noticed the "Shirtless Bishie"-Thanks for making my handiwork so popular. XD

Well, so many people to give shout outs to, I dunno where to begin.

Kyle, my fellow pirate: I hope your first ever con experience didn't traumatize you too badly. And didn't I say that you'd have a blast? Never question my wisdom again!

Vote-Seducing Chii: The reaction you got out of some of those guys was classic. But despite your efforts, Ninjas almost caught up at the end.

Jilla and Megan: It was so awesome to see you guys. Waffle House sucks at 2 in the morning, or whenever we went. I swear, there's a conspiracy against me at all the Waffle Houses on the south side of Durham.
And despite what you think, you do deserve the cute award.

Gene Starwind/Red XIII, I suck at remembering real names: It was awesome to hang with you again. Your skit rocked. Also, the Pirate Tower technique is superior to the Ninja Tower technique.

Kid with the Golden Shopping Cart: Thanks for the ride! We should do something for cosplay next year.

The Ninja whose Girlfriend convinced me to take over his shift in video room three: Mermaid's Forest is MST3K level of material. I think I would have gone insane if I couldn't have mocked it.

Martini Gendo and his crew: Best. Soviet. Anthem. Evar.

Comiku.com Girls: Once again, you rock. Thanks for trying to help me find my Mini-Asuka, but I never did find her in the end. And, I hope to hit Otakon, so see you there!

All my LSU buddies: Yes, I'm aware y'all call me 'Ninja' at school, but it was confusing as heck to hear this weekend, so don't be surprised if instead of looking at you, I just yelled "PIRATE!"

To all the Ninjas: Y'all assassinated me over 27 times that weekend. Can't we all just get along?

Well, if I think of more, I'll post them, but I have one closing remark:

PIRATES!

Nixxer - You rawk! I hope we can hang out again soon! Loved talking to you!
Onnawufei - You also rawk! Wish I could have found you to say goodbye but I hope we see each other again! The Dr.Mana pic is fabulous!Say Hi to your guy and friend for me!
GreatSG - Thanks so much for my drawing! It was great to hang out with you and your nurses...which leads me to...
Avanon,Godess Cookie and Kilayi - You guys were a riot! The pics turned out great and the strawberry shortcake napkin bra stuffing is still being laughed over!
DDRFaery Geez! I didn't even really get to see you much but I wanted to tell you that you rawked at karaoke! Great meeting you (even if only briefly!)
Sake Ninja 2 Glad you popped in the caffeine party! Thanks for the tea! And I want a copy of that pic you drug me into on Sat. outside the dance!
Cha Had an awesome time talking with you at the Muse booth. Thanks for the info!
Quadrain - Thanks for the Bawls! *giggles* I wish you would have stayed longer Thursday but con IS a hectic time. Great meeting you,though and maybe next year you'll be able to hang out longer!
DJ Tekno Monkey - You are one crazy guy! Great meeting you! And the pic with you on Cha's back turned out great! It's sooooo funny!!
The Tono and Tekko cosplayers - You guys made my day! I never expected to see Glay cosplayers! *glomps*

The Ninjas- MUST WORSHIP, your costumes looked great

Greg and Anthony- the school girls

Bucky, Sean, and the Chibi-Sephie- YOU GUYS ARE SEXY!




Eric, AKA Cute Boy I Bought At The Auction: Heeeey! You still need to call me XD *grins* It was fun hanging out with you before cosplay, but I'm sad we didn't get to dance during the rave. Hopefully we can hang out some later since you live in NC... ^^



Hey, was the Eric a tall-ish guy with brown hair that dressed in a suit, black lipstick, and eyeliner on Saturday? If so, I can help you get in touch with him, he hangs out at my house alot.

~ To Aaron- Thanks for leaving your room open so I could sneak in and scare the crap out of Micheal. Also thanks for letting me borrow that nail polish.

~ To the makers of Fort Awsome and Fort Mediocre - If not for you guys Fort Witty would have never been built and Strike Force Wissconsion would have had nothing to do.

~ To Anyone who showed up to sing along with shojo and my friends to Queen instead of going to the "real" dance - You people made the right choice. It gave me an excuse to dance like a moron in a well lighted area. And the people that joined in on my train, you rock that much more.

~ To anyone who found the beans - I hope you guys found it funny some what. That bag of beans went everywhere we could get them and being noticed makes it all worth while.

~ To anyone else - this is includes, but is not limited to; The artist who let me borrow her pen to make my "you need a hug sign", all the people who i hugged because of my sign, the girl who "claimed" me saturday (that was unexpected), and anyone who came up and talked to us out of nowhere late at night and then left before telling me your name or anything.

Since I'm seeing a lot of people posting that I recognize having seen, I've got some shout-outs of my own. ;x

The Yami no Matsuei people -- Particularly for having such a nice Muraki. (Who would expect that?) You were just great. And you had a Tatsumi!

The Angel Sanctuary people -- some of the most gorgeous costumes ever.

Chibiroth -- For being adorable and giving the hot Sephiroth lovin' for pocky.

The Kingdom Hearts people -- Just for being awesome enough to dress as Kingdom Hearts people. ESPECIALLY whoever was floating around as Kingdom Hearts Sephiroth -- that was an awesome costume.

The guy dressed as Magus -- I'm going to jump on this bandwagon because whoever you were, you were one of the nicest and most welcoming people there -- and hey, it didn't hurt to get hugged/glomped a total of four times by you.

The Soviets -- You guys were hilarious. I saw the paper-wrapped people being wheeled by and could not figure it out. "What are you dressed as?" "These are Soviet uniform!" "No, what are you from?" "We are Soviets!"

Drunken Vash -- I think that's enough said. Can someone be more in character without really seeming to try? ;x

I just remembered some more people:

Two guys who placed all the plants outside the 5th level elevator: :bigtu: That was extremely funny and cool....... Unfortunately, about ten minutes later I had to go back downstairs after being locked out of my room and none of my roommates would wake up until I went downstairs to the front desk and had to come back up with the security gaurd :eek: :cool: but it was still cool...

To everyone who had a sign: :rockon: THE SIGN PEOPLE ROCK!!!!!!!!!! :rockon:

To the cat girl who gave me a dance for donating the change that I had: Thanks for the dance, it was cool. Also thanks for the hug and I hope you liked my trick.

Im sure I will remember more but this is all for now...

Cookie_Goddess: Thanks for the drawing you gave me, it's awesome. Hope to see you later this summer when you get back from the Beach!

Anjierusu: The Angel Sanctuary group, hell all of your costumes were damn cool.

Omittchi: Glad you love the drawings and the party was great fun, now if I could only have copies of your music cds *cough*B-daynextweek!WillPMaddress*cough* :bigtu:

DDRFairy: Glad Dr. Hentai has inspiried you for god knows what to expect next year. Remember kids, "Make Hentai, not war!"

Animazement was a blast this year!!! My legs still hurt from walking around in the Hotohori dress.

Zanini (AKA-EYEBROWS)- For providing the ride to Animazement. For staying up with me the whole con. We had a hotel room, but why use it.

Jill and Brit- For hanging out with us. Ice cream flavored poptarts are awesome.

To everyone in artist alley early Sunday morning- Behold the tower of cups, and let there be jousting!

To the Penguin Lady- For drawing the anime penguins. Penguins ROCKXORS!!!

To the Miaka that followed me around all day Saturday- I'm a Hotohori the bird, I can fly. Congratulations on winning 1st place in the novice division during the cosplay competition.

Pirate Kaji- For the awesome polls. Ninjas will win next year. I hope you found a coat.

All of the Fushigi Yuugi Cosplayers- The spur-of-the-moment photo shoot in the dealers room was alot of fun.

To the girls outside of the dance- I'm glad you liked my rendition of the macarena, I didn't realize that anyone was watching.

Martini Gendo- Your skit was great Mr. Gendo/Eyebrows/British/Communist. I'm telling you French Canada is always plotting something. "I pick up gesture in your country." Gendo proceeds to flip everyone off. "Is this good, I feel much of this for America."

Hanime- Congratulations on winning the advance division cosplay competition. I hope to make it to Metrocon.

And to all my fangirls- I must have been glomped a bazillion times during the con, and I don't know how many wanted to wear my hat. Thanks for your support and complements. I hope to see you all next year.

i would also like to give a shout to the soviets who called me "the matrix guy" as i walked throught their yelling at a video camera. It was more amussing then being called a "medieval pimp" or jack the ripper.

Oh and before i forget again.... A THREAT! To the person who bid on my art, and made us wait until 4:30 for you NOT to show and pay, so we wasted a whole hour and a half! May you be blacklisted and never allowed to buy art again! You got my hopes up then made me feel horrible!! :angry:

I wanted to glomp Captain Jack Sparrow. ::Sniffle.:: Alas, I did not get the opportunity. I did get you to pose for me, though -- I was the crazy girl in the suit demanding you hold the gun up by your face. >D

And my best friend was the one who yelled, "SWAGGER!"

Hey! this is Andy. I was the Drunk Vash this year. For starters thanks to FindingBeauty and Shadablade for the shout outs. As for the super glue it we were more than happy to help out anybody else at the con would have helped if they were able to do so, so my sis and I were happy to lend a hand.

This was my first con and I have to say I had one of the beast times in my life. My only complaint was that my sis didn't take me to one earlier. With regard to shout outs I have to say thanks to everybody. There was not one person there that wasn't nice to me. The copious amounts of hugging was a plus too.

Thank you again evrybody for the great time and take care all!

Hey! this is Andy. I was the Drunk Vash this year. For starters thanks to FindingBeauty and Shadablade for the shout outs.

You were so awesome. You had the greatest personality to go with your costume -- it's all the better if someone can get into character, but I got the feeling you were managing that without even trying. *grin* "I'd buy THAT for one dollar!"

Really great. And undoubtedly one of the most fun people there.

Link Arroway: Man slut! :P I totally wanted to hang out with you and your friends more, but I never got a chance and I only stayed for Friday and Saturday. I also have a hilarious plan for next year's Animazement you might be interested in hearing sometime later.

Farmboybob: Ohnoz! You smashed teh yuor bawls! I will never ever forget that moment :P Oh, and watch out for tenth floor nazis.

Quadrain: I never knew a television could double as a bed.

KawaiiEdea: Remember the costume I talked about with you earlier? Once I lose some weight, I am totally going for it and it will be hilarious!

Kytri: I hope your knees weren't too stiff after the photoshoot. Oh, and I eventually got one of those cool drinks with the little marble in it. They're spiffy.

Dracos: I never saw you even once. It can't be that hard to spot a chibi-Sephiroth could it?

Tomo: I didn't see you anywhere either! I totally had to bug you :o

Other CCR peeps: You guys rock! Too bad we all didn't hang out for very long before everybody seperated again.

Girl at the booth where me, Mason and Coyote got our chibi pictures drawn: You recognized me as Futaba-chan! That made me extremely happy! :D

Strange Ukelele Man: We will learn your secret soon enough. We'll find out who you are one day.

The Melfina and Gene Starwind of the Pirates of the Galactic Leyline skit: THAT WAS GREAT! XD "Not just the whole galaxy love... the whole world!"

Man who kicked us off the tenth floor: What is so important about the tenth floor? It isn't even the highest floor or anything.

Sake Ninjas: You guys rock!

DJRanmaS: I should've brought my Akane costume this year.

Wedoca: You guys should totally bring some Dynasty Warriors games next year and have a tournament and stuff. I would totally win with Zhou Yu or Xiao Qiao! >:D

Amethyst Angel: Sun Shang Xiang! I loved your costume, and I am planning on eventually, one day, making a Zhou Yu costume (or a Xiao Qiao costume XD)

"Em": Remember the person dressed as Futaba-chan with the Crazy-88 and the Foot Clan Ninja? That is me! I forgot to ask you for your e-mail address or Yahoo IM or AIM or whatever you have. I hope you read these forums so I can talk to you some more and stuff. I hope your art went to auction and you got alot of money. The picture you gave me looked really awesome. You're an awesome artist and good luck on the military thing.

People who did the Naruto skit: THAT WAS ALSO HILARIOUS XD

Kaji: Pirates all the way! Arrr!

Studmaster: Thanks for going and finding all the rest of the cosplay.com peeps. I was beginning to get worried the photoshoot was going to fall through.

Anybody I've forgotten: You rock! Woot!

Farmboy's Heartless: Most adorable plushie EVER.

Everybody who took pictures of me: Yay for pictures! ^_^

Martini Gendo: That was absolutely one of the most hilarious skits I have ever seen. Do you by chance happen to go to the Bob And George chatroom or the forums or anything?

You know, although AZ 04 was awesome, it seemed to be a little down from last year, but I bet Animazement will be like, four times as good next year! :D (especially when we all get organized or something.)

Cheers to Akira Kamiya and Chika Sakamoto for their great miniconcert at Opening ceremonies- they rocked! Especially Sakamoto san! Who remembered me throughout the con and said hello several times.

Cheers to Yuu Watase for a great panel on how to draw manga and the more general one with Sakamoto san.

Cheers to Yoshimi and Suu and other AZ staffers for getting such great guests year after year.

Cheers to the cute polls throughout the con

Cheers to Kevin at fansview for not only taking my picture in my costumes but telling me what type of batteries to get for my digital camera so I can take more pictures with it before the camera sucks the batteries dry.

Cheers to golden shopping cart person, you didn't really get in the way and I was amused seeing such evidence of a hard core dealers room junkie at the con

Cheers to the Resident Evil "Thiller" copslayer group. I loved your skit! I also loved the Communist soliders copslayers skit

Cheers to the sexy Captain Jack cosplayer, you were hot, honey. (My mother even thought so ;)

Jeers to the elevator riders, you were annoying with you space taking and cold stares. If you insist on riding elevators for entertainment be chatty and friendly with people who need to ride the elevators

Jeers to the Sunday excessive glomping group, you were loud, annoying and got in the way of people trying to get to panels- I cheered when the staff finally shooed you away to the lobby

Jeers to the staff in the art room, you were so slow getting pieces to buyers that I missed part of closing ceremonies. Get more staff/volunteers in the art room on closing day please. I waited well over an hour in a line with only approximately 20 people. There was a similar problem in 2003 when I waited for my sister to pick up her art pieces and money for ones that had sold, when we went after closing ceremonies had ended.

Jeers to the drunken morons who tore down my sister's MTAC flyer (taped to our hotel room door) at 2 AM Sunday

So anyone mentioned whill know who I am. I was the short enfeminate looking guy in the gackt and kamui costumes. I was often being dragged on a leash or walking around with my two aquisitions.

First of all thanks to everyone for making my second animazment absolutly unforgettable!

To everyone who realised I was a guy I know I'm short don't look my age ect. Thanks to everyone who boosted my ego. 413 hugs 72 kisses on the cheek 1 person dite my tongue

IssacThanks for talking with me and dancing with me on saturday night at the artist alley. You were a great dance partner even if you were a great deal taller than me. Not that that is very difficult to be.

Mana and Riku I had a lot of fun at the friday night dance even if you did yank my chain. ^_^

To the rest of the x/1999 group. We didn't get to cosplay but I still had fun and thanks for making my sword. I think we're even after I posed for your shonen ai photos.

The two guys in school girl uniforms Great costumes. That was the best seven dollars I ever spent at an auction.

To the people at the yaoi panel nest year we shoulc have an official one don't you think? Thanks especially to the guys, I wasn't the only one!

To everyone who took a look at my booth on saturday the yami no matseui people who commisioned chibis, trevor's (dark vash) new girlfriend who commisioned fruitsbasket art, and the girl who waited as I made you a shonen ai fuma and kamui.

the elevator people Ihung out with elevators are so much morefun when talking to strangers in the middle of the night at an anime convention.

TO adam and everyone else at the anime pavillion booth.[B] How do I end up working at that booth to every convention I go to?

Thanks everyone!

Actually, my friends and I got up to the tenth floor -- since it had those nice windows and all -- and took some pictures, and no one ever "caught" us. We walked up the stairs, though. (Gasp, pant; that was annoying. And painful. I almost died six flights up.) But we rode the elevator back down. It got really crowded and amusing around the fifth floor.

::cackles.:: Yes, I dragged you up the stairs. Remember if we had really been climbing the ShinRa building, you'd had to have done that seven times, so count your blessings. We did get some lovely pictures -hopefully.

And ... one of the reasons no one probably bothered us, we looked corporate and Cid Kramer looked like hotel staff.

Ugh. The idea of seventy flights of stairs makes me shudder. HOWEVER -- if it were really the Shinra building, we could have gotten clearance to kick all the minions out of the elevators. Pft. I can't wait to see how the pictures turn out tomorrow.

And, yeah -- that bugged me, people thinking "Cid" was hotel staff and that we were there on a business trip. It could have been the pocketwatch on Cid, though, and the burgundy vest. But, seriously, you had on a silly duster and I had a dot on my forehead. :untrust:

I bought two of them , the dancers in school girl uniforms. It was fun just leading them around and posing for photos. I'll never live it down with my friends but it was fun being the lone male bidder. Certianly made a lot of yaoi fans happy I'm sure.

So you're the girl!! I was wondering if we would ever find out who you were! lol That was great though. My friends thought the mark was hilarious and went with the outfit I was wearing great since I was dressed as a J-Rocker at the time (even though I'm sure I looked like a girl character since he's so feminine). I was the one in the big blue hat and yes, it did take quite a bit of scrubbing to get the mark off. Left a red mark on my neck from scrubbing so hard. ^^;

I was so confused and out of it and didn't even realize what was happening until after you had left the mark and I finally noticed the mark on the guy next to you and was all "ohhhh, thats what she meant!" It was quite a surprise.

Aside from all the people I branded with pink lipstick(mwah!), I have a few people I feel deserve shoutouts..

First and foremost:

Ashley, for allowing me to dress her up like an adorable little doll, as well as getting us rooms and rides. I love you sooo much.

Luke, Joe, Shaunna, and the rest of our bunch, you people are what make cons great. What would a con be without your best buds?

THE GOON SQUAD(AKA, The Furry Demolition Squad): You guys are realllly f*ckin' weird, but I love you too. See you at Neko.

Sean and Paul, for taking care of sick little me on Friday night, as well as just being really cool dudes to know.

Lyn: Wow. Small world? Love you too, see you at Ota!

Captain Jack and Captain Gene.. What can I say? I love Pirates of the Caribbean and Pirates of the Caribbean spoofs.

All the men and women in my little Harem at the Saturday night dance: It's not a con without a wild orgy-like dance, consisting almost entirely of women. You are what make it happen, and I thank you.

Mana, for being my adorable little kitten around the con. I'll tug your leash anyday.

And everyone who took my picture, gave me a hug, let my give THEM a hug, and all the people that were willing to walk around the con with my brand on their necks, breasts, etc, etc. I love you all. ^_^

Maybe if they donate the proceeds to the convention -- though I was unclear on whether they were actually taking money? O_o; I took a bunch of pictures of it, though. In any case, if they held the auction for dance partners, perhaps, and donated the proceeds to the con, it'd be neat.

Next year will probably be worse. After years of bribing, black mailing, etc...a few of my stranger friends have conned me into crossplaying next year. They might have mercy and let me be shuichi in the skirt or yuki from fruitsbasket so that I can maintain some sembalence of masculinity...

Hey ... like someone else said -- most wannabe bishounen would kill to be mistaken for a girl. *grin* If I could make a suggestion, I would recommend cosplaying Hisoka from Yami no Matsuei -- he's a perfect example of male-who-looks-female-in-certain-contexts.

There's nothing wrong with crossplaying. ;) It's basically all I'm interested in doing -- mostly because a lot of female costumes are overdone or, well, too revealing for my tastes (FFX-2 Yuna and Faye Valentine cited as examples, here). There were a couple of crossplaying guys at AZ anyway ... the male Milly from Trigun, and the Gogo from Kill Bill. Oh, and wasn't there some guy dressed as a Sailor Moon character?

all the cosplayers Once again, my first cosplaying expierence was made ten times better by the people in that cosplaying room. When a room full of people breaks out into the Pokemon theme you know you've come to the right place. The singalongs were really fun. We must do them next year.

To everyone there For not killing my younger brother for his golden shopping cart of space-taking-ness.

To everyone who was waiting in the cosplay room for keeping things amusing while we waited. And for joining in when I started the '99 bottles of beer on the wall' song. (Which morphed into 'sake' about 3 or 4 bottles in, when I and a few other people realized that would be more amusing and appropriate. ^_^).

To everyone who clapped at our timewarp skit , despite the fact that the DJ's weren't looking the first time Magus turned around (which was the cue to play the music), and cut the song off too soon. And despite the fact that we weren't doing the dance very well. :rolleyes:

I'm sure I can think of others, but I'm somewhat sleepy at the moment. ^_^;...

EDIT: Mouse of Justice , for finding my friend's costume adorable. :toothy:

hey, it's me the inuyasha from the skit. i really enjoyed helping you get the sing along started and the skit was much fun. thanx for a great time. hope to see you next year or at otakon if you are going.

A big shout out to Will and Brandon! You guys made a great Alexander and Alucard duo!

A shout out to my friend Sean, thanks.

Chibi-Sephiroth- it was fun Iku, I wasn't mad that you backed out of the cosplay contest.

Nick- a big shout out to my friend Nick. He took so many photos with me in them that I think I broke his camera. Thanks to me and him and a couple of other people, we started the Glomp Line on Sunday.

and here's one to anyone else I missed!!!!!

(feel free to contact me anyone ^_^. 211 photos I took if you want any)
