Like it was mentioned in the thread before... Friday night we are getting together a group of demon related cosplayers.
Yes, Inuyasha counts. ^_^
Anyone else intrested?

Hello, I'm Lord Katsuhiko Jinnai. I'll be helping with the Oni-Con dance. I'll be spinning remixed anime, jpop and jrock music (ALL FAN-REMIXED BY ME).

This will be my first time DJing in Texas! I'm very thrilled!

You guys are in for a treat! I don't know of any other DJ who does the same stuff I do. The closest would be DJ Sharpnel, but he is a DJ in Japan!

Please check my site for samples and other random things! Thanks for reading and hope you attend ONI-CON!

Oh yeah, and say HI to me! XD!!!

Since this is on behalf of one of our convention sponsors....

We're looking for input on our LAN rooms and what type of bubble/boba/tapioca tea everyone likes. We have threads devoted on the Oni-Con forums to these topics so if you do have any suggesting, go post em there!

Thanks

Please forgive me if I said something out of line. I just never want to see something like that again!

I'm looking forward to the Duel Jewel in concert!! :jjacks: Yay!!!

Now about that mini demon masquerade. I think I will just watch and cheer the others on. I'm not that brave when it comes to being in front of people. I did it at Ushi-con 3 and I don't plan on doing it again. That is, unless someone drags me up there in chains, :p or they give me puppy dog eyes! ^.^ Besides, most people seem to be annoyed by us InuYasha cosplayers from what I've seen. I might just go in my Sesshomaru costume. That is if my friend can go as InuYasha in our group. I had to be InuYasha and Sesshomaru for A-Kon because she couldn't come.

Oh and Jinnai, I will definitely try to find you and say Hi! I'm not much for dances but, in this case, I'll make an exception just to hear you rock the house! :rockon:

Jinnai is definitely awesome. Can't wait to see the chap spin live!

As for me, I'll be there...looking rather dazed at times. Or, failing that, looking for some way to procure gummi in any form I can find it. Good times.

DjPhReAksTyLe
07-31-2004, 03:29 PM

For Oni-Con I'm blessed enough to be a guest, so I'll be there at panels and the art alley and whatnot.Yatta for the uber-class gummi goodness!!

08-02-2004, 10:35 PM
I'm (99%) sure I'll go! I'll be a Miyako from Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne for my friend, a bishie hunter, and either an improved Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist or Yuki the rat from Fruits Basket! XD

AkitoSohma
08-03-2004, 02:00 AM
I'm about only 87% sure that I'll be going to Oni-con (I HOPE so, though. It'll be my second con!). BUT, if I DO make it, I'll probably be cosplaying as Leona Uzaki from Tank Police, Seta Soujiro from Rurouni Kenshin, and Kuro Ky from Guilty Gear XX (if I can finish the costume in time). I'm gonna drag my boyfriend along as well, dressed as Al Cuad Solte from Tank Police, and possibly a friend of mine we call the Sn00 (who will be dressed as Dark Chii from Chobits). HOPEFULLY (cross your fingers, everyone) I can manage to get off of work for a few days to attend!

And if anyone here saw me as Akito Sohma from Fruits Basket this past A-Kon, I hope to see you again! (and get your email addys this time >_< D-oh!) I would be cosplaying as Akito again, but my hair has been butchered and I can't afford a decent wig AND all the costuming materials, so I'm having to cosplay as a few characters with short, brown hair ^_^'' And from the looks of it, I'm gonna be one of the first to cosplay as Leona! w00t! (Pretty certain I'm not THE first, but I haven't seen any pics of any others online yet, soooo...)

Anyways, can't wait to meet lots of new people and see a ton of great costumes! Ja matta!

As a Texas girl I really want to go but I'm a poor college student just out of state. It would take me at least four hours to get there and I don't know anyone who's going. I really don't want to get a hotel room for just myself. I can't afford it ^_^ If I can find people I sort of know who would want to go then I will. If not, I'll have to wait for (hopefully) Oni-con 2.

Btw, is pre-registration still going on?

If I did go I'd cosplay around as Kagome (the first costume I've ever made) and Sailor Iron Mouse (costume # 2) again (I was a walk-on at the A-Kon 15 cosplay contest) but I don't think I'd compete. I would need to make a new costume, and I'm still drawing a blank for A-Kon next year as it is ^ ^;;

Cherry, can you give me a rough estimate of how many attendees you expect for the weekend? Are you all promoting at Anime Day?

FYI: The link on the front page for Artist Alley information leads to an interview with Jason Balduf.

I will be attending Oni-Con as my first convention I just need to remember to send in my pre-reg. I have already booked a hotel for the weekend even though I live a little over an hour away. Could possibly look into getting some roommates but since none of my friends like anime and I'm rather new here I dont know how that will go. My costume is coming along nicely but going to be very upset if it is not finished in time.

ZakuKitty
08-03-2004, 12:34 PM
More and more people...this will be awesome <3

Still need to buy a badge though....<_<

Working on another costume since I have the contacts for it...Ash from Phantom Brave. ^^ Looking forward to cosplaying something other than Naruto :P...though Naruto still rules. <_<

FYI: The link on the front page for Artist Alley information leads to an interview with Jason Balduf.

At this exact moment, I really can't say our estimate due to the fact we don't know. Our hotel is nearly sold out, and I know it's to the point we were getting worried about building restrictions. Our dealers tables are stacked, and new people are registering every day. I can probably post some sort of guestimate soon. I know UshiCon 1 had around 800 people total, and we're expecting FAR past that. ;o

I kinda am sad. We were expecting to be a small first year con, but instead we're becoming a major con. Oni-Con 1's hotel isn't as big as I would like, but it is PRETTY DAMN big. Oni-Con 2's hotel is going to be MUCH more impressive. I can't say it until we figure it all out, but it'll be ... macho. It'll blow Oni-Con 1 out of the water, trust me. <3.

But yes, we have a full house at the moment. :3

Jason Balduf. <3.



Zaku Kitty- The badges are actually being worked on about two inches away from me. They. Look. So. FREAKING. Cool.

Whoa...didn't even know there was a convention planner. *adds oni-con to planner* Ohh, and by the way, my two brothers, 4-5 friends, and I plan on going, so I don't think going by the numbers on the planner is/will be very accurate (but you probably know that allready). *shrug* I think I'm gonna print out some of those nifty oni-con flyers. My brother said he saw some around his college (Art Institute of Houston) so apparently they work.

I am guessing that you meant to say the 22nd. If anything, you shoudl at least convince her to take you early on the 23rd...<_< If she won't take you on the 22nd until before and during the work and school then at least come later on that day perhaps. :) The first con is a special time...though the other ones after are quite nice...<_<

Well I asked around , but parent's say I can't go to Oni con ;_; . They say they want me to spend my birthday "With the family" . They never do anything special for my birthday so I don't see why there're saying that (I stopped having party's when I was 9 , cause I just got sick and tired of crying on my B-day because not even my older Brother would show up ) Maybe next year though.

08-30-2004, 01:55 PM
me and my brother finally decided how we are gonna cosplay at oni con. we are gonna go dressed as syndicate members from the manga of Love Hina. we are hoping that comes out ok. its basically suits but we are gonna add in some accessories that we hope will help it out. hope to see you guys there.

It'll be fun. There's going to be sooo many Naru's at this con, I'll bet. It's so appropriate. xD

We're up to 71 cosplayers now, of just people who are on these forums. I'm really happy. I hope I get to run into everyone . :3

Making my own Sasuke costume is really starting to get tempting.

Hanyou741


Yeah! All I have left to do is stitch up the tanktop I made and find a toy gun and I'm all set. The only problems are that I won't have the right shoes, I'll be wearing my black boots instead, and I'll be wearing glasses (I don't have contacts anymore)...Muwahaha! EEEEEVIL NERDY HEERO!! :toothy: I'll be there all three days (hopefully). It all depends on when I get my new job and if I can get all those days off. But I AM going to be there! *looks all determined with her Soujiro katana at the ready*

Anyway, I'll send a preview pic when I'm done so I'll be easy to find ^_^'' as if the black boots on Heero in his tanktop and spandex shorts from the fourth dimension wouldn't be enough...Hope to see you there!

I hope my costume's actually going to be done on time... right now it's not looking like Ackman's going to be completed by the con... I may have to just stick it out with street clothes, eyeliner, and a spiffy wig (which would basically be Ackman... maybe I'm on to something here). And it's not looking like any of my friends are going to cosplay because a lot of them don't have time to make a costume or anything.

Oh! I can't wait till Oni-con! Though I'm getting very worried every day because things just seem to get worse! I was going the whole weekend,than I could only go Friday and Saturday,now I'm down to Saturday and if I'm lucky Sunday. Though I really wanted to see Duel Jewel on Friday(if I'm right) I can't go Friday at all because of stupid band performance ><;;; Though I am going to go no matter what. My mom promised me that. But I wanted to ask if anyone had any idea on where to stay other than the hotel it is being held at(because I heard they were booked,I told me mom to get a room about 4 months earlier,but did she listen?) I'm trying to talk my mom into just sleeping in the van but I don't know. XDD Gah,maybe I am going to end up paying $27 just for a couple of hours of Saturday. ><;;;;;;;

Oh and if anyone is wondering, I will be cosplaying Chii with my friend as Freya. We are doing the 'black and white' costumes that has only one reff. pic. o.<

And I really wanted to hear all the uber cool anime remixes at the dance! ;_;

Are u in band at school? I wasn't gonna be able to go on friday becasue it's band night but I had such a crappy audition that I made the lowest band and cannot go to the game to play. Besides, if I do go on friday everyone will think I'm sick^^

loserific
09-19-2004, 04:14 PM
Yes,I'm in marching band. ><;; Though my school is so small and our band is even smaller that they just have to have everyone there or my band director throws a little fit. I talked to him about it and he said the only way he would let me miss is if I had already paid. I knew I should have paid earlier! *has check and envelope in her hands right now* And plus if I just missed and said I was 'sick' than, well, he would kick me out. And then that would lead to my parents freaking out on me and,well,yeah. Gah, all my time is sacrificed to either the band god or cosplay and anime god. ><;;;;

Wow where do u go to school? So many go to the highschool that they had to build a seperate SCHOOL just for 9th graders (where I'm at now). Therefor, our band is huge. I play a popular instrument as well, we have like 50 trumpets in our band, so they won't miss me. Also, with me being in the lowest band they don't require me to do anything except play at pep-rallies. I haven't gone to a single football game this year.

09-19-2004, 04:30 PM
Well, I go to school in Chambers County. Our band is so small that we have to have the little 8th graders play with us. It's really that small. And on top of that, I am in the colorguard so they need me for that too. Though I just ended another fight with my mom about oni-con and we are most likely staying Saturday night. I wanted to go after the game on Friday but my mom is lazy.

We have only 9 trumpets...I think. ;_; 2-3a school's suck.

Oni-con is only a month away and I just got to realizing that I still do not have any tickets in hand. I bought them online from the website and have the paypal receipt for them but I was wondering if they were supposed to be mailed to me or do is there just some registration list at the entrance? Unforuntately there is no way I will be done with my costume on time, have just been to busy lately. I do have a hotel reservation but since I'm not going to be in costume and live in the area I will probably be giving that up. If I had a roommate or two maybe I would stay but $160 for just me is a bit much.

For starters and n00bz, I'm NOT a Club DJ, High School Dance DJ or 15 year old Birthday Party DJ. I'm an ANIME CON DJ. (different crowd, way different music.)

No iPod at this party. (I dont even need or want one, actually) I use tools, not toys. This will be LIVE...heck I'll mess up 1 or 2 times to prove it...just for you. *wink wink* :skidude2:

i know for a fact that dance contests can keep the convention moving, even after the late hours of a con. people may be even in costume still! you could have your own lil mini contest and just get the people to have fun! sometimes cosplaying all day and watching anime takes a lot out of someone. ^^ cheer em up! bring on the fun!

OMG Saturday was crazy. I was cosplaying Randomly Generated Background Character #6. There were 6 of us there (#s 2, 3, 6, 007, 009 1/2, and our teacher, who wasn't holding a sign or anything), and we were all holding signs that said "Randomly Generated Background Character #x", and from what I hear a few of our guys made it into some cosplay photos. Next year a few people I know are going to do Evangelion cosplay... we're also going to be at A-Kon in June. The screening rooms were fun too... I was the guy screaming "FANSERVICE!!!!" during risque scenes in DNAngel (I'm sure I got on everyone's nerves, but our group of people were trying to lighten up the atmosphere in the room).

S3FilmsR3x, my friends said that they wanted to kill you because of the DNAngel thing, which is kinda weird coming from twins dressed as Misha and Shia^^. Apparently someone started yelling pervert after a while as well.

Yea, you should save that stuff for Otaku Hell or Hentai Fest.. so were you at Otaku Hell or Hentai Fest? Cause I didn't hear a single call of "Fanservice!", and we could have used it ;)

10-24-2004, 07:12 PM
I didn't get to make it Otaku Hell or Hentai Land, but I really wanted to go. The group I was with left at 4, and we're all under 18 (I have like 2 more years to go, arrgh), but I would've loved to be there. They need to have a screening room where we can mock the anime being shown... I really didn't meet anyone else at the con who took Princess TuTu and Sister Princess seriously, but I did really like DNAngel, even with my "fanservice" cries and the person sitting next to me telling me what happens (she read the manga or something...). Did anyone else see the anti-male AMV with the Static-X music, btw? It was awesome.

A FANTASTIC job on the Con! i have to say...I had the MOST fun there EVER. There were a bunch of rocky spots for the people running it...but it went amaizingly well for a first time con. it only means you have a few things to learn from to make next year ten times better!!!

*huggles and snuggles Cherry, Gren, Jase, and ALL those wonderful people on the staff....Especially YOU Mr. Door security man! (yes, you with that nifty camera) You're the only one who asked me for my badge!!! I had fun talking with you...especially in front of the...er...dance....thing. *takes off Red Mage-esque hat with feather and bows*

The only thing I have any complaints on....and it had NOTHING to do with the people who worked the con...were the mind bogglingly large hoard of fangirls. *hears 'Sephiroth' and cringes...nursing aspirin* It's the first time a comfortable costume EVER left me sore and bruised.

I didn't go dressed up because I couldn't get my costume and not let my mom know at the same time, and my 17 costume wasn't really finished (i was missing the socks) so i just went... it was the greatest time I ever had, though. I just regret the fact that I didn't really meet anyone. I'll definitely go next year though, and this time i'll make sure I'm dressed as Saturn :) yay! Best weekend ever.

I at first had my doubts about this con before I went considering that it was its first year and having seen another first year con. But this one was definitely one of the most fun cons I have been to since I first started going to cons. The turnout of people was awesome and it was really fun meeting tons of people. I feel kinda bad being the only Ragnarok Online cosplayer (at least that I saw, curse you Gravity! Advertise More! ToT), but maybe I'll get to see some more next year! This con is definitely gonna replace my going to Anime Fest... so much closer...so much bigger...and so much more fun! Gren and Cherry (Negi-Ramen!) were awesome at the cosplay contest, even with the non-functional Santa and two hour delay. I am definitely telling all my friends to come to Oni-con next year maybe I'll refine my RO costume...High Priest anyone? ^_^

Hug_the_Monster... omg you were one of the highlights of my con... I heard you got well over 1,000 hugs.... what's the grand total? I think I gave you at least 8. ^^;;; The hug you gave my Squall friend was hilarious... definitely glad I filmed it.

Oni-con tied Ushi-con for my best con experience thus far. I was a bit sad that Yaoi and karaoke were cancelled, but other than that I don't go to panels so I can't really comment on those. The komik market was well run and I'm glad that if someone stole my table that I was assured they'd get their butt kicked out of it by staff. I can understand the delay for cosplayers and it was fine because we had fun sitting out there anyway. Everyone was nice, including very friendly security. And for those of you who photographed, hugged, or talked to me as Lida, Kumagoro Ryuichi, or Baby Lon - I thank you. ^_^

Hello everyone. X3 Glad to see everyone had as much fun at Oni-Con as I did. I was dressed as Nightcrawler for about 80% of the con, I'm sure most of you saw me. (I was bright blue, after all. T_T) Overall, I think this was OUTSTANDING for a first year con. I think everyone should really be thanking the staff for their hard work, as I'm sure most of them were screaming and pulling out much hair over the weekend.


S3FilmsR3x - I like Princess Tutu... e.e;

JKCChan - The Ragnarok Online guy! You were the priest, correct? I was hoping for more RO cosplayers. You better be at A-kon, cause I am definitely doing an RO cosplay now, thanks to you.

Scortia - Oo, the bunny Ryu! X3 I have the photo of you with Shuichi and I, if you'd like it. I'll have it uploaded soon~

Hug_The_Monster - I'm sure I hugged you a few times. :< Poor random encounters, they don't get enough love. I was standing around when you managed to con Scott McNeil into a hug and he instantly took on the Dr. Evil voice and said, "Aw, come here Mini Me. Give us a hug." XDDD; Too bad I didn't get it on video.

Jennacide - Your Death costume was outstanding. Never seen any Sandman cosplayers before! I can't compliment you and Delirium enough for that. *love*

ZakuKitty - I definitely saw you in your Hokage costume, but as I was on the 2nd floor balcony, I couldn't get a good picture and didn't see you again. T_T It was amazing though, I can't wait to see if anyone else got photos of ya.

I had a great time at Oni-Con. Despite it being my fourth con, it was the first one where I had a semi-decent costume, so I was very excited about getting my picture taken left and right.

I was the Red Nocturne heartless from Kingdom Hearts aka the short girl wearing the funky red dress and yellow wizard hat.

I'll probably be wearing the same costume for Ushicon, but I'm going to improve upon it because there were a lot of problems with it.

Anyway, I was pretty impressed with the con overall considering it was its first year. It was one of my friend's first con, and she had a lot of fun stalking Duel Jewel while I wandered around aimlessly.

Oh yes, and I did hug you, Hug the Monster. A few times.

I saw some great costumes, but I didn't get into the Cosplay events. I was lazy. Maybe at Ushicon.

Oh and if you like Tutu and are going to Ushicon... me and my friends will have a Tutu cosplay group that has about 5-8 characters being cosplayed. whoot, and I'm da prince. ;p
