Are you planning on going to PMX 2005?
Who are you going as? :)

I wish PMX 2005 was not going to be held on Labor Day Weekend. Otherwise, I would go. *shrugs* Oh well.

Im there. I didnt go this year but my sis did and she loved it. I will probably use my costumes from AX next year(pics in my sig.) but I might make a new one just for PMX. theres some time in between.

I know Videl and I are seriously looking forward to PMX 2005! We had such a great time in May! We we kinda dissappointed that we had to wait over a year for the next! Well our plans may have been more suited for 2004, but this is it: Psycho le Cemu costumes. I think its quite fitting because this is the convention that we fell in love with them. And depending on guests of honor, we'll have other costumes. I'll have two Daishi costumes and one Yura-sama. I don't think I'll be making new costumes specifically for this convention. A lot of the costumes for 2005 will be debuted at earlier cons.

Labor Day weekend? Really? Is that what they announced? That means I actually might be able to go! I was afraid it'd be really close to AX like it was last year, and I wouldn't be able to make it. It was okay this year since I live in California, but I'm moving to the east coast and I dunno if we could afford both of those AND Otakon.. but September might be late enough in the year to return...

...this is of course, all dependant on them having some cool musical guest again. Or else I don't think I'd come back just for PMX. I absolutely loved it this year, but when I need to save money I'd just stick with AX where more friends will be. ^^;

Yes, I shall be at PMX 2005. I enjoyed my time there and it was very mellow. Altho since it won't be conflicting with say Fanime or AX next year, I'm guessing alot more peep's will be joining too! Itsa gonna be crazy! @_@ XD

....and the gathering list I'll be working on will hopefully be HUGE this time around. XD

You guys need to represent next year. I barely broke a sweat at PMX this year. Oh well, more free time. :)

Hey! More free time means that things get to be scheduled around things easier. You dont have so many gathering all at once! I welcome the free time thats for sure! ^_-

But yeah, more cosplayers are needed!!!

I am going to pmx. It was so much fun last year with PLC and stuff. Also it depends on the music artist. I hope they have some good ones. My one wish is that they would have L'Arc~en~Ciel. But i guess thats hoping for too much.

Clueless Case
08-03-2004, 02:55 AM
I probably will...I just hope its more organized..

jen_kat
08-03-2004, 11:52 AM
I'm probably going again. In some ways, it's kind of good that they moved it to Labor Day weekend, and then, in some ways, not good. Since it was in May this year, that was right around finals time for all of us from my Anime Club that did costumes and went. If it's Labor Day weekend, that means it's still during the summer (for some, anyways), but that also means that most people won't be around. Pros and cons, eh?

I have no idea what I'd plan for yet, it's over a year, and I still have to plan for other things first. ^^;;

abellabella
08-04-2004, 01:27 AM
I will definitly be going again, and I will again strive to get an award of some sort!

08-06-2004, 10:48 PM
Hm...Labor Day Weekend, eh? *thinks about it* it sounds like fun..that's definitely more than a year from now though, so I have time to think about it, and since it's in Anaheim it shouldn't be too bad...^_^

Kenjiro
08-09-2004, 09:31 PM
I thought it was going to be in Long Beach?

*scratches head*

Regardless, I should be able to work staff again, which is cool. I like working staff.

08-10-2004, 12:39 AM
Long Beach??? Anaheim??? Who knows???

Either location is good. Anaheim is okay, but I think this year, that location was just too big for this convention. Long Beach is a little smaller. PMX will grow, but who knows by how much? The convention center area at Long Beach has changed a lot since AX 2002. It's really nice now.

kyojin_alex
08-10-2004, 12:52 AM
Im pretty sure it'll be in Anaheim. With any luck my sis and I can get a hold of our Aunties time share again. woohoo!!!!

Well there's over a year still to make plans and stuff for it. ^_^

Videl-chan
08-13-2004, 08:39 PM
PMX is definitely a con that I don't want to stay away from. Seeing PLC was awesome...actually I can't put it into words, I just want to see what they have for next year!

Michi
08-14-2004, 03:12 AM
Yeah, me too. What musical guests they have next year may determine if I even go, honestly. ^^;

Matrix7reloaded
08-14-2004, 07:19 PM
Well, I guess it all depends on who the guests are. I really liked the music guests at PMX 2004. I give PMX a way higher grade than AX 04 in the guest category.

Visual_Kyoist
08-14-2004, 07:45 PM
I will probably go.. but.. I'm not sure if I'm free on Labor Day weekend.. I'm usually busy.. I hope I can go at least.. If I can, I want to try a NANA cosplay..

shogun
08-16-2004, 01:47 AM
The venue is just about locked down. We're already in touch with two bands who want to perform. We've also sent preliminary feelers to some of the Guests of Honor already as well. First flier should be ready by our 1 year out mark.

Well, we aren't bound to any specific company to bring only their artists, so we are shopping around a bit. For 2005, we are hoping to bring guests who have never come to the US before. (Although we aren't stopping some of the 2004 GoH's from coming back if they want to come visit.)

We are having our first planning meeting for PMX05. We'd love more cosplayers to have a larger say in the event. If you are interested, drop by!

The first meeting will be this Sunday the 26th at 12Noon at the Pizza Hut at 3002 S Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles.

A map is at:

This will be an introductory meeting with staff introductions and a peek into the vision for year 2.

The October meeting will discuss the hotel, convention center and we will have the first fliers or postcards for the convention.

I'll be going and I hope to see a few familair faces.

The first business meeting of the year will kick off in the city of Cerritos. We will be meeting this Sunday in the middle of the Cerritos Towne Center at Noon. The location is:

12731 Towne Center Dr, Cerritos, CA

At this meeting, we HOPE to distribute the first postcards, discuss facility assignments, discuss ideas for this year's convention, introduce some of the division heads and also get to know the local fans.

As part of our strategy to reach out to the different communities throughout the LA/OC area, we will rotate the meeting to different sites throughout the southland. We hope local fans will attend to give us suggestions on what they would like to see in the con and perhaps even join up if their passion is strong enough.

Thank you,

Mike

Yes. I will be going all three days. I'm hoping to meet a few people there and maybe expand the people that I know in the jrock cosplay world? Something like that. I will gain a large following (like Man Faye) and take over the Mana cosplay world. Muahahahahahahaha! Ahem (kidding). Anyways...the jist.

First Day: Bridal Mana. Big poofy white dress. Can't miss me.
Second Day: Illuminati

Pre-Reg:Hitsugaya [In a school uniform] from Bleach
Sat/Sun:Hitsugaya [Captains Uniform] on Sat and Sun.

I'll also be carrying a sign that says "Free Juice Boxes for Rukia Cosplayers" :P
