This is something that I've been wanting to do for a long while and I know more than a few people that have worn costumes or are planning them, so I was wondering who would be interested in getting a group together? Please tell people you know if they would be interested as well, and feel free to post here or PM/email me. My hope is that we can get a large group of people together so by all means doubles are allowed (the more the merrier!).

I personally will be wearing Bart, most likely done in the art version as opposed to animation (purple inside collar, looking sharp, etc). I might be making chaos for Otakon too, time and money willing, but that won't be for the group. ^_^;

Thoughts? Opinions? Psychotic rodents?

Oh wow.. must.. resist.. urge to do Miang..!!!

*tries hard to resist* >____<

LOL I might consider it really, but it depends on how much I'd have to spend on making it. ^__^ Do you (or anyone else, for that matter!) have any good full-body pics or know of any anywhere?

Emeralda
12-10-2002, 10:02 PM
Well, you know that I'm always good for Emeralda. Though by this point I'm going to need to redo it from scratch. The mantle was chocking me at the end.. and I dunno where my bootcovers went. Ooopsie. Tehhehe.

Dude, if there is a group, I will definitely be there as Billy. ^_^ Although I can't really walk in my boots. But that is okay. Whoo hoo, more Xenogears cosplay!

Sami- good luck. I had a simply dreadful time finding reference pics for Xenogears. They are out there, but you really have to scour everywhere to find them!

Emeralda
12-10-2002, 10:21 PM
Sami, I can try scanning in some pics from Perfect Works. Miang right? Tehehee..

*cries* I have been considering doign Bart, game version, but I don't quite know what the hell I'll have time for before Otakon...I'll have the blonde wig from when I do my Allen costume so I'll have to see...

penultimate03
12-10-2002, 11:07 PM
I was planning on doing Maria, but I don't know how well that's gonna fall though, haha ^_^* Guess it might take a few months for me to give a definite answer.

The outfit doesn't seem -too- hard, but my main issue is the wig I'll need.

OY, Recca-Kun....question....
Did you used to chat in the MHz Global chat? Maybe a little over a year ago....

Recca-kun
12-10-2002, 11:09 PM
Sami: I can find more Miang pics and/or bring my copy of Perfect Works with me somewhere if we're both in the area at the same time. ^_^; I'm on break from the end of next week through most of January I think, so I'm not sure what your plans are but I'll be around...

psythe
12-11-2002, 08:03 AM
Consider Kahr Ramsus on the list of attendees :bigtu:

And for character references I have a few up at this address:

http://www.forcefedmultimedia.com/xenogears

Either I or Recca-kun I'm sure can get more characters up if they aren't on that page.

Ooh, if you could get any of Maria Balthazaar, it would be a huuuuge help to me! ^_^

Sami
12-11-2002, 03:48 PM
Eek, I found a few pictures of Miang and not only would be well out of my range of knowledge, but I don't have the funding.. ._. Good luck!

Zephyrs
12-11-2002, 10:48 PM
eee! I've been playing Xenogears like a madwoman lately, just got to disc 2, and was actually thinking about doing something from Xenogears once I beat the game. Margie looks cute, but again don't want to decide anything until I beat the game, who knows I might fall in love with someone later one ^^

But yeah, I seriously would like to do this, as in everyone I'm rooming with is in a FF8 group except me and I'd miss out on all the group funness...

Alaria
12-11-2002, 11:10 PM

No problem at all ^_^ Don't worry too much about it.

I occupied myself trying to find fan art of her to see if there were any fairly accurate pics. Not many, ack

!!! Yes I did! Wow, someone else that was there. ^_^; After I saw they showed TMR's Heat Capacity I whored the show out to as many people as possible, and went to that season's final show for Nen Daiko (good performance). Haven't been keeping up with it much recently though... do you still frequent there?

Anyway, here (http://pacolyn.org/targeted-image/FF/Xenogears/people/maria/maria.jpg.html) is a picture of Maria. This whole site (http://pacolyn.org/targeted-thumb/FF/Xenogears/) has a lot of pictures as well as anime screencaps (I'm going to have a friend make me an Elly fancel! :D) so check it out. ;)

Other sites to check out:
http://www.xgam.org/ <--- Lot of stuff
http://www.escaflowneonline.com/xenogears/ <--- Same here
http://www.liquid2k.com/zenogears/ <--- Good Image archive, has sketches and nice fanarts including Maria.
http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Zone/4888/Xmp3.html <--- Some songs, more importantly some waves of the attacks. Weltall's G-Shot makes a great aim alarm, and having the intro as a startup sound is always fun. ;)
http://www.d2.dion.ne.jp/~synn/ <--- Japanese site with some incredible fanart for the Xeno and Chrono games.
http://www.rpgamer.com/games/xeno/xg/xg.html <--- Yeah it's RPGamer, but they have some stuff like art, fanart, etc.

And apparently this (http://www.escaflowneonline.com/xenogears/images/anime/maria1.JPG) is the only shot where Maria is animated. ^_^;

Sami
12-13-2002, 11:06 AM
Alaria - I probably won't do another character.. I hadn't realized how intricate and time-consuming a lot of their outfits looked. x_X I already have at least one big costume planned for Otakon, so I doubt I'd be able to devote more time/energy without my head exploding. ^___^;;

penultimate03
12-13-2002, 03:18 PM
Recca~

I used the sn K-Chan in the chat, I used to chat there a loooong time ago. I never frequented much though ^_^* but I did remember another cosplayer there from MD called Recca...I put two and two together and TAADAA!

Thank you SO MUCH for the links! *goes to dance amongst cosplay designs*

Celine
12-14-2002, 11:14 AM
Awww... Sami, that's a shame.. ^^ A few of the costumes aren't so hard, especially if you like crossplay (XD), like Fei's and Billy's. Actually, Citan's isn't really that bad. It's probably why lots of people do him, I suppose.

MrWonderfulToji
12-14-2002, 08:59 PM
Depending on how things pan out with my other costumes..
I've always wanted to cosplay someone from xenogears and this is a good chance to... hm... I could pull off citan, billy, possibly jessie.... i spose in a pinch I could be fei. But its not gonna be too convincing having a 6"2' white guy be fei...
of course, I could always try for my absolute favorite chars...
MIGHTY JOE AND THE CAPTAIN OF THE THAMES!!!!!! they were the coolest men ever..

A Mighty Joe would be SO AWESOME!

I know who I'd be hanging on the whole time! ;) Haha

Ok penultimate the Maria pics are up at

http://www.forcefedmultimedia.com/xenogears

enjoy! :bigtu:

Mighty Joe would indeed be cool, I would also like to see a Grahf costume, the headpiece would be insane.

Recca-kun
12-14-2002, 11:01 PM
Haha too bad I don't drink and will only be 20 if it was the Captain, but that still would call for several chants of "Men of the Sea". On the bad side you would want to load that thing up with fans and cooling packs since it's Baltimore in the summer. Either one of those would be awesome though. :D

I'll have to ask around about Grahf, see if anyone wants to do that... one guy I talked with awhile ago said he would either be Grahf or Ramsus. As far as other rare costumes go one person was planning Id, so I'll check up with him too.

Hmm, think we could get a full set of either the old or the new Elements? Old would definitely be easier since we would only still need Jessie and Sigurd, but it would be cool to have Dominia and crew.

penultimate03
12-15-2002, 02:36 AM
I wanted to do Seraphita so bad at one point, but then I realized the *ahem* skimpiness of her outfit, so I had to change my mind there ^_^*

And thaaaaank you so much psyth3!!!

It looks easier than I thought it would be originally, sw33t!

Tell him to do Grahf!! XD!! Not only would it rock, but I wouldn't have a twin running around either ^^v

and I would SO join in for some

MEN

Hmmmn.. would that be my friend Adam who did Weltell this past year? If not I can bug him and see if he'll do it anyway. Hmmn.. wonder if I can con Mo into doing anything as well. Oh.. umm.. hey Mo! *ducks behind a pole* Nothing to see here, I wasn't putting ideas in your head.

12-15-2002, 03:31 PM
It wasn't Adam, but if you could pass word along and ask him if he would like to do something it is definitely appreciated. :bigtu:

Oh man, I have an idea for a cosplay walk-on now. :crylaugh: No stealing it if you know what I'm thinking though. ;)

MrWonderfulToji
12-15-2002, 09:02 PM
of course it would have to be a more humanoid captain of the thames, I dont know how well I could make a big walrus head..
But if I did, I'd bring along some Ramune soda and Doctor Pepper, so that we could all toast to the

REAL

MEN

OF

THE

SEA

god I loved the thames. that was my favorite part of the game.. when bart is all tipsy in the bar and he does the salute with the captain. man, and when mighty joe gets his pimp on.... classic gaming.

Recca-kun
12-15-2002, 09:21 PM
The peg leg could be annoying, but if someone knows how to make mascot costumes (I'm sure someone on the boards does ;)) the face is not impossible. On that note, a Hans would be also be great but would also be a bit akward. And Hammer would be great for a punching bag (kidding! ;)).

penultimate03
12-15-2002, 10:28 PM
Or....a GIANT CHUCHU!

Haha

That might be a little scary.

I'm planning on making a little plushie though, in my free time

Recca-kun
12-15-2002, 11:55 PM
No, this (http://www.wam.umd.edu/~kroyer/evilchuchu.jpg) is scary. ;)

Seriously though Maria with a Chu-Chu plushie would be very cute. :bigtu:

My group did Xenogears last year and it was fun*nods* We were really surprised by how many people recognized us and took photos. Our Elly might end up wearing her costume again on Friday if she knows there will be other Xenokids running around. I'll pass on the info to her*salutes*

Oh, and uh...*lewd gleam in her eyes* Think you'll have any Sigurd and Ramsus people? And think they'll let me get a photo of them snuggling?*drools*

Ack. I promised someone some Elly pics and just now got around to putting them up. Also thought maybe it could help someone around here as well.

Now with 100% more Elly! ^_^

Recca-kun
12-31-2002, 02:03 AM
*Turns giddy as a schoolgirl* More Elly pictures are always a good thing. Like the SD Elly in Pefect Works - sooo cute! :heart:

That reminds me, I finally got the Xenogears Anthology doujin off eBay before Christmas and haven't taken it out yet. ^_^;

Zephyrs
12-31-2002, 02:13 PM
hmm... I'm debating trying a Xeno cosplay, but I really have no clue who I could get away doing given my lack of magical sewing skills and reluctance to wear anything too skintight or revealing... any suggestions? I'll even try a guy, I'm already doing one crossplay for certain...

psythe
12-31-2002, 02:17 PM
silentduelist, perhaps do one of the elements?

Kelvena perhaps? maybe Tolone...

check my page out for costumes, the link is a couple posts back.

Zephyrs
01-02-2003, 03:40 PM
ah thankies thankies... the scan of Kelvena looks alot more... what's the word I'm looking for, *possible* than her in-game icon. I don't think I'd start a Xeno costume till March or April anyway, but Kelvena is definatly someone I'll look into.

And anyway, Xenosaga's coming out next month! woo hoo! who knows what cool characters we'll see there to possibly cosplay :)

psythe
01-02-2003, 08:50 PM
*nods*

I can't wait to see all the cool costumes that are going to be in Xenosaga, although I think there will always be a special place for the Solarian uniforms for me :D

Emeralda
01-02-2003, 09:14 PM
Oh, here's a thought I talked about with Kyle at one point. Maybe one day we can have the good guys ie: Fei's gang and then another maybe the Solarians? Any takers? Mainly because I want to revamp Emmy, but well, I feel weird wearing uber short skirts. And was thinking about making one of the Elements. Then again, I might just be biting off more than I can chew as usual. Any thoughts Commander? Tehehehee

-Laura

psythe
01-02-2003, 09:21 PM
lol, that's the second Commander comment I've gotten...:rofl:

I would be all about that! If I could get a Solarian Elite group together (Miang, Ramsus, Dominia, Kelvena, Tolone, Seraphita) that would be the ultimate! ^_^

And I know we already have a couple of the good guys coming to Otakon to begin with :)

Zephyrs
01-02-2003, 10:04 PM
Solarian group, now you are convincing me moreso to go pattern hunting for Kelvena ^^ and if there's a good guy day, Mother Sophia rocks my world so if anyone's got good pics of her I could look into that (and since it's a robe I could make it or at least parts sooner than the rest in case I have another size change like this past summer that's a plus ^^)

hmm that would make 2 WA costumes and 1-2 Xenogears for me, that sounds like a good Otakon plan, plus it will give me a group to wander with while all my roomies are with their FF8 gang. but I request we all get together and do the REAL MEN OF THE SEA routine anyway :)

Emeralda
01-02-2003, 10:05 PM
AHH! Wild Arms?! Which one??!! I still want to do Lilka from WA: 2nd Ignition, or even Marivel, since she kicks so much ass!

psythe
01-02-2003, 10:13 PM
For MEN OF THE SEA we always have to have a couple of the group members stand there and look completely disinterested like "not again" :D I just got done with the Thames section too!

Do Kelvena! and I think Emeralda was doing Seraphita, then all we need is a Dominia, and a Tolone and we have the full Solarian outfit, Rah!

Emeralda
01-02-2003, 10:24 PM
Yup, going to have Emeralda for one day, and Seraphita for another, or later in the day. Whatever the plan winds up being.

Zephyrs
01-02-2003, 10:52 PM
Emeralda - I'm doing Jet from WA3 simply because I have to do a WA3 thing and then Cecilia's royal dress from Wild Arms, since I loved Cecilia more than any other WA female. and I've seen one or two cosplays of her casual clothes, but never the royal dress.. I've got the patterns for both already, and some of the props. now I just need a field trip to my friendly (not quite in the) neighboorhood JoAnns for some fabric.

and now Kelvena, yes indeed. She and Seraphita are my fav Elements. two more left, and we rock the world. time to print those pictures for the next 99 cent pattern sale tee hee.

psythe
01-03-2003, 07:47 AM
Was gonna post a list of Xenogears characters that are being done, along with characters we would like to have for Otakon in the "seeking cosplayers" forum. Should I? :D

Zephyrs
01-03-2003, 05:15 PM
yeah go for it :) Is there a playable character crew yet?

on looking at the Mother Sophia portrait, me and my friend have come to the conculsion that I look way way way too much like her... like mad crazy like her.. so I have to try Mother Sophia.. wow I never though I actually looked like any game character till that lol

psyth3 = Ramsus
Recca-kun = Bart
silentduelist = Kelvena
Emeralda = Emeralda and Seraphita
Friend of Emmy = ID or Weltall O_o
Friend of Emmy 2 = Citan
Celine = Billy


that's all off the top of my head, if I have forgotten someone here, let me know so I can keep adding to the list and then I'll post it.

Edited to add more costumes

Emeralda
01-03-2003, 08:15 PM
Don't forget celine has Billy, and a friend of myself and Kyle is doing Citan. We may have an ID as well.. otherwise maybe Adam can bring Weltell again.

Recca-kun
01-04-2003, 12:46 AM
I know an Id. Adam is the guy who did Fei a few years ago and Weltall last year. We're talking about two different people, right? I may know a Fei but I'll have to ask around...

And again, if anyone knows someone with a costume but it's already on the list by all means invite them too. ;)

I may plan chaos for part of the weekend, but that wouldn't be for the shoot.

Alaria
01-07-2003, 03:30 AM

Recca-kun
01-07-2003, 04:02 AM
No one confirmed for Krelian yet... That's another one that we should have. ^_^;

psythe
01-07-2003, 07:49 AM
Yes, we need a Krelian! hehee :D

If we got the other two elements and a Krelian....I think we'd be set. But the more the merrier!

This is probably the largest Xenogears group I think I have ever heard of....

Well I plan on doing Bart sometimefuture but for this group, I -might- do Tolone since psyth3 suggested it.

I'm gonna take a look at more pictures of Tolone and figure out when I'll need and I'll confirm if I can or not...I was hoping to have another costume to wear to Otakon anyways ^^;;

psythe
01-07-2003, 10:54 PM
w00t for Tolone! I'll see what I can dig up image wise.

Zephyrs
01-08-2003, 06:07 PM
woo almost there with the Solarian gang.. is there any more Kelvena pics that might help with colors and patterns? The closest Joann's is still 40 minutes away and in another state (and I still can't drive *sniff*) so the next time I go - hopefully before end of February - might be the only time before I have to start sewing ^^

psythe
01-08-2003, 06:09 PM
At the latest I'll do a scouring for some more pics of the Elements this saturday. But they are quite limited in the Perfect Works book. Hopefully I can get something going, I'll post back here when I add some new images.

Alright for anyone doing the Elements (Kelvena, Tolone, Seraphita, Dominia) I have put up a new face shot of each which should help with figuring out the colors. Unfortunately I don't have anything of Tolone from the waist down except what I had up there.

Waaah, I was hoping to be your Elly. XD I was looking forward to posing with Miang around Commander Ramsus. :p

I have been working on an Elly costume, and I just got the wig in the mail, but I can wear that another day. :) Maybe there is another character I could go as?

I'd love to be a part of this Xenogears group. I have waited for a good Xenogears Cosplay Group for so very long! :love:

psythe
01-16-2003, 11:05 PM
Well what character would you like to do? We don't have a definite Dominia Yzkor yet, so she would be cool to fill out the rest of the elements. Maybe Margie or Primera as well.

Celine
01-16-2003, 11:06 PM
Wow! This group has really become quite large! Yay!! ^_^ We don't have a Fei yet? I might be able to talk one of my friends into it... no guarantees right now, but I can try.

Mizuho
01-16-2003, 11:29 PM
I saw some pictures of Dominia on your site, and she is a possibility. I'll look into that tomorrow, and try to collect some ideas on how to do her costume.

Maybe Yui, Citan's wife. Oddly enough, she was always one of my favorite non-playable characters. :D

I was thinking of making a list for some of the other non-playable characters, in case we had others who wanted to join. Characters like Queen Zephyr, or those maidens who remind me of Maetel who wait around and guard the doors in the castle of Shevat...

Shakan, Bishop Stone, Dan.... Well, the Xenogears Image Archive on Zenosaga.com has a lot of characters and some pictures of each one:

http://xia.zenosaga.com/pw.html

It's a nice little gallery, and it might be worth checking out to some people who would like to find a character to cosplay as.

And I just saw her in game too, doh!

Psyth and Ryuichi, actually.... I'm afraid to ask this, but I thought about it.... but would it be too much to have two Ellys in the group? :thumbsup:

Recca-kun
01-17-2003, 02:13 AM
Mizuho: It's fine by me. And yes I would say it was ok even if it wasn't Elly. ;)

Celine: I know of a friend of a friend who said he would be Fei last summer, so I'll follow up on that. If you know someone too though, that would be great.

Other than that, I think I can talk someone into cosplaying Sophia, but I need to have her play the game more first.

Not at all ^_^ This goes for anyone, if you wanna do a character we already have listed, by all means go for it. Wouldn't want someone to avoid their favorite character just because it would be a second one.

01-17-2003, 10:58 AM
I think the point of this group is just to get as many Xenogears characters together as possible... since a bunch of the characters are awfully popular, I don't think it would be surprising if we have many duplicates. In fact, I'm quite surprised that nobody else is doing Billy. Ah well, there's still plenty of time before Otakon.

Zephyrs
01-17-2003, 05:22 PM
yeah, there's still time - I can't really sew for a while, so I can get all the sketching and planning and pattern altering done in the meantime.

I showed my mom a picture of Kelvena when I was starting to sketch it out and she was like "you're going to be like a little fairy pixie girl. that doesn't seem alot like you" "uh mom, she's one of the Solarian Elements, she fights battles and has a giant robot." "so she's not like the tooth fairy?" oy. right now I've got two costumes definatly planned/started (not sure how wise an idea a full gown is for a con I'm going to be Amtrak-ing to in mid August so there went one of them...) that should keep me busy for a while.

Celine
01-17-2003, 08:58 PM
XD Tooth fairy.... haha, sorry, that image is just too funny...

Iridal
01-18-2003, 09:59 PM
Well, since no one definately settled on doing cute lil' Margie, I guess I can haul out my Great Mother Margie costume and restuff the hat o' doom (tm). ^_^ (Seriously, I looked like a pimp straight outta the 70's without Margie's hat stuffed, and it felt so damn weird when it was stuffed *sighs*)

So you might be seeing a Margie around at Otakon as well, possibly with Kaitou as Elly. ^_^

Mizuho

I'm glad to see someone's looking forward to seeing Margie in cosplay. ^_^;; Last year when I went as her, people would shove me aside to get a picture of my boyfriend (who went as Bart) and then relate to him how hard it was to find 'good' Xenogears cosplayers that year. I thought I looked good....

Lady's boyfriend said he may do Billy again this summer, if he can figure out a good way to do the silver hair. Last year, he sprayed in silver colored hair spray, but it came out too uneven for his tastes, and getting a wig to cut down that much is just a waste.

Any suggestions, other than him bleaching his hair even blonder? ^_^

psythe

01-21-2003, 04:56 PM
I'd use silver hair spray personally. ^_^;; What brand was it, because what I use usually works well enough...

*Laughs* One thing that was funny was when I was dressed as Musica from Rave and was hanging around a Haru I could tell that he used the same brand of hair spray that I do from the look and smell. ^_^;;;

Emeralda
01-21-2003, 08:05 PM
Was that like at Otakon, while sitting next to Dom from Megatokyo in artist's alley, and he was joking that we should sell hits off his hair from the smell.
WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE~~ His hair was pretty ... strong smelling from the green spray. But his hair -was- green.

Celine
01-22-2003, 12:17 AM
Err.. you can buy a silver/white wig in a short style like Billy's... and it wouldn't require any cutting or styling (that's what I did). ^^;;; You can always spraypaint the wig if it's not silver enough, too.

Zephyrs
01-22-2003, 04:06 PM
yeah since I am very unwilling to dye my light hair black (it'll wash out grey, been there dyed that...) I'm going the spray-in route, or something...

I'm going to shoot this question to the costuming forums as well, but just in case someone catches it here first, what is the best way to approach the Elements' upper sleeve guard things? I'm not sure if the art book or the game portrait is easier to make ( http://www.forcefedmultimedia.com/xenogears/images/cherubina1.jpg and http://www.forcefedmultimedia.com/xenogears/images/cherubina2.jpg respectively) the artbook style can be treated as actual sleeves I'd think, just with much "poofy-ness"but the in-game one looks more like armor with a sleeve attached... the skirt is going to be made in multiple pieces so my little brain can handle it (^_^) but those sleeves... argh!

I'm headed to Joann's tomorrow (after my physics midterm, one exam I'm sure to ace!) and going to get stuff for my costumes I have planned and if I get a flash of divine inspiration for another one. my friend *still* thinks I should do Mother Sophia for a different non-group day just cause I look like her, but we'll see.

Cool, Xenogears is cool, wanna know something?? I used to be friends with a girl who's Uncle was one of the designers of the characters from Xenogears!! She used to show me tons of drawing she made of the characters and their uniforms, she sometimes gave them to her Uncle and he either put them in the series, or made posters of them! I still know where she lives and she is going to High School this year hopefully in the same one I am

I think I spoke too soon. I just went through 8 different Doujins, and nothing. Only small shots of Krelian. I do have three more on the way from Japan, so maybe one of those will have something. Hmmn.. Isn't there a shot of him in the guidebook as well? I know there was a bust shot, I dont remember if there was a full shot.

khamryn
01-28-2003, 01:59 AM
Aww.. okay. ^^

Yeah there's a shot of him in the guide... but not full body. :x i'll just have to guess based on the chibi. u.u;;;

psythe
01-28-2003, 08:17 AM
I found a line drawing of him that I can scan in for you if you want. It may be a bit helpful cause it has a line drawing of him with the cloak off and one with it on. Also there is the upper chest on up shot of him in the characters section that may also be helpful.

I have to scan some things tonight anyway so I'll go ahead and put those up as well.

ID! O_O

Who wants to do Id, Alaria?

Recca-kun
01-28-2003, 07:03 PM
Actually those are two seperate people (unless Adam really was planning Id, the guy I kind of know is named Brandon). Is that an "interested in being Id" or a "interested in Id if he's the only one, else he'll be someone else"? (Because although having a full cast is cool, multiple of the same character is ok! and much better than someone being shunned or not part of the group)

Edit- how did we all three post at once? O_o Whatever Adam wants to do would be cool. As far as Dan... I'll have to harrass him again.

Emeralda
01-28-2003, 07:10 PM
Kyle: Actually, he's been harassing me lately with odd random IM's so its time to put the screws to him. Adam said he'd like to try ID, but its not a definite. So Alaria, its fine if your friend wants to do it too.

Hmm.. posting at the same time? Maybe we all share a spooky psychic link?

if you need another person, i would like to go as fei. I liked the game alot, and fei was a cool character (he reminded me of cloud in some ways). I could make his costume pretty easily, i think. The only thing that would be a problem would be the hair of his, but i could always have my friends help me find a wig. I already have the body, im just really tall and tan ( i'm not sure if he was tall), but sooner or later i'm going to try and make Id's costume, that would be nice.

Wouldn't mind sketching a naked Krelian either, but I doubt someone wants to do that outfit*evil grin*

Yeah any day is good for me as well, although some people (i.e. Kham) may have stuff on Saturday like other groups, their favorite costume, or being in the cosplay. Whatever works for everyone is what's fine by me.

Also to add to the list of possible people, some of these are way obscure:
Abel (does anyone have a little brother that is able and willing?)
Kim (easy enough, aside from the hair)
Zephyr (I may be able to find someone, we'll see)
Roni & Rene Fatima
Grahf & Executioner (remember to add ice packs to the suit, it'll be hot in August! ^^; )
Khan & Fei's Mom (whose name escapes me at the moment ^^; )
The Gebler
Bishop Stone
*insert random enemy i.e. a Hob* (lol, kidding)
A Gear (Good Luck!)

There were a few others mentioned but not confirmed yet...

And again, if you know someone that says "Well I'd like to join you but I have a Fei/Citan/Billy/etc costume" please make sure they know they're welcome. Sorry to keep hammering this, but other people have to be out there somewhere... ^_^;

I might as well mention that I've already got a semi-decent Citan costume which I wore to Ohayocon. I'm gonna try and make it to Otakon, but I dunno if you really need another Citan... :p But if you don't mind repeats of incredibly cool characters (:D ) I should be there.

Emeralda
02-05-2003, 10:58 AM
Well, we'd love to have you. Besides, our current Citan keeps threating to cut his hair.. sooooooooo. Either way, find us on Friday.

Celine

Yay, you found this thread! ^_^ I liked your Citan costume, and I think it would be great if you can make it to Otakon and wear it again.

SyntaxGlitch
02-05-2003, 04:20 PM
Well, current plans are to be at Otakon. I can't promise 100%, but I'll definitely try and catch up with you all if I am there. A giant Xenogears group would be too cool by half. :cool:

Though it looks like there's nobody playing Sigurd or Jessiah... pity, I wanted a photo of myself as Citan with one or both of them. :D And they were really cool characters, too...

back online after a rather disastrous series of events!
then I didn't recieve any emails that anyone had posted, so I thought the thread had died, but decided to check it... anyways.. count me in as a definate for Mighty Joe, or really anyone that you guys need who doesnt have a brutally hard costume *I can't sew, so im going to comission my friend to do it*
so... yea! I'll put out my comission probably in two weeks to ensure its ready by april, so if theres any modifications to be done, they can get done in a nothurry..
btw, im about 6'2, 185 lbs, dark short hair,blue eyes, so if there is someone youguys would rather have around then Mighty Joe, let me know!

Friday afternoon/early evening is the tentative at the moment unless that doesn't work for people...

And fyi we have 20+ people in the group so far! :D

Rings??? Sounds ok if i can find one. I also have to find a pick of Fei so i can get started on his costume. I do have the game, but i dont have the case for it with feis pic in the cover (Trade in game, only one i could find for $5). Dont know when me and my friends plan to get there though since we're traveling from VA. hopfully i will have a good costume since i haven't sewn anything in a couple years and i'll be a little rusty. I may ask my friend to help me brush up on my skills.

Also Giant Alucard, after Katsucon I can post a good number of Fei images for you from Perfect Works.

Giant Alucard
02-10-2003, 09:30 AM
thanx. For some reason im finally getiting a lot of costumes in the worx for future cons. Besides my fei costume i will have to find the cash for a NINJ4 hoodie cause i'll be going as junpei (or whatever his name is, can't remember it at this moment). I hope i can get my Alucard costume done in time for Katsu though. I have to hope i can get somone to find a pair of yellow round sunglasses and meet me at the con. If i can find somone to do that for me, I'll let them own me for a day or two in return (if it's a girl, if it's a guy i'll pay him with cash, food, crash space, etc; the girl will get all this anyway). I never knew that fei found midoris ring in the game (i'll have to remember that next time i play). Who are you going as to Katsu Psythe, maybe I'll see you there and we could have some fun!?!?

Not really sure right now, but i believe we should arrive around 3pm on Friday. My travel group is kind of wierd , so i wont be able to leave til around 11 or 12. But we may get there earlier since our driver has been there a couple times before. for the con i hope to be:
Friday- Seta from love hina with his van (made of card board if it's finished in time)
Saturday- Alucard from Hellsing
Sunday- Nabeshin (if i can find his red coat (*stares evilly at the student next to him wear a red formal coat.........*) I should be online tonight, so be in touch.

Hmm...6 PM on Friday? *considers* I have another costume planned for Friday, but if the Xeno group is going to be in the evening, I might go ahead and pop on over in my Emeralda outfit. When forte-mari gets back from his big swim meet, I'll see if he'd like to drag out his Billy costume for the evening. Iridal and I might be able to talk Kaitou into donning her Elly outfit, too.

Are there any tentative plans for where to have everyone meet up? I know in 2002 they used the lobby area (over on the skywalk side of the building) for a photo area. So since the group is so huge, maybe meeting there would work out? I can grab one of my old maps and scan in a picture of the area I'm talking about if it might help*nods*

Aww...no fair LX!! If you get to put me on a leash I should AT LEAST get to hit you in the head once..err...twice...and I'm kinda starting to hope the zipper does get stuck..lol..I think it'd hilarious..XD..*runs*

Ha ha funny Ryu...hey the only reason you are goin on a leash is cause you keep getting "misplaced" . How that happens I'm not quite sure...and if my zipper gets stuck I swear you will have an irate Chu-chu on your hands and I will find something heavy to swing at you while you laugh!! *LOL* Bum. *winks*

On another note...I'm wondering where we are meeting also...any ideas? I like Lady's suggestion...though this will be my first Otakon so I may get lost lol...^^; Ryu don't laugh cos if we get lost I am donating you to the first person who gives us directions ^^;

Recca-kun
02-11-2003, 07:53 PM
Lady: The lobby area with the couches (2F) or the ground floor (1F at bottom of escalators)? That could work; my other thoughts are the area where pre-reg used to be and dealer's line was last year with the ship and the area where pre-reg was last year on Camden Yards' side, but those usually seem to be gatherings for other groups at those times. Up on 4F outside main events/photo suite would be cool with the mini-stage if we could get it, but inevitably some event would be going on or people will have trouble finding it.

Whatever is accessible to the Gears and mascot characters is fine by me. There are elevators at all entrances which will help somewhat.

*Imagines Weltall or Chu-Chu surfing through Baltimore on the back of a truck to get to the BCC* (Don't try that at home kids!)

Wyndham/Raddison, I take it? Do you at least have a van? Or possibly hapless friends to help carry costume parts if at all possible? :(

Anytime outside of the BCC it's most likely going to be hot and humid, so the less time outside the better IMO...

Lady
02-12-2003, 01:01 PM
I snagged an image from the BCC's website. The area I'm talking about is the Charles Street Lobby. If you're in the lobby, and you go up the escalator or stairs, you'll have access to the walkway linking to the Hyatt and Sheraton*nods* I hope that helps give an idea of where this area is. And here's a picture, too!

Woo! We might have a few more Xenosaga characters for the group. These aren't guaranteed yet, but will happen more than likely.
Two KOS-MOS! One with the normal red eyes, and one with the blue hyper-mode(or whatever) eyes. :p
We'll also have a Shion, that girl with the long purple hair, and possibly a MOMO and chaos. When the game comes out, we'll be able to figure things out. :p

Ah yes Toji, NOW I remember you. I think you made me almost spill my water i was carrying. ^^;;;;

Giant Alucard
02-20-2003, 09:32 AM
I'm Think that I may also cosplay as ID if I can figure out a way to make the costume. The only way I can see right no is to make it using Black Spandex and adding stuff on top of it. It may work, but spandex is expensive i think, and I'm not sure if i'll like all the girls there staring at me like they can see through my suit (happened once, strange expierience to say the least). IF i can't make it i'll just stick to my fei costume.

heki-chan: Awesome, the only bad part is it makes me want to cosplay chaos more and I keep shifting with costume plans. I'd love to still be able to make him but I'd want him to have the most time (I want to have him be as perfect as possible) and we'll have to see how much other costumes get in the way. ^_^;

Kaitou: Didn't Zeboim Elly have a nurse outfit to compliment Kim in the lab coat (or maybe that was just my imagination)?

My original thought was to get as many Xeno people together as possible, and while having a large cast is great the last thing I want is for people to feel excluded on something like having two people dress as the same character. We have two Citans, I would imagine two to three Billys, maybe even two to three Ids (I've personally never seen even one before), so if you would still be interested you're by all means welcome.

Recca: Zeboim Elly does wear a nurse's outfit, and I'm pretty sure there was a picture of her in Perfect Works. *goes to the bookshelf*

Possible picture on pg: 242 or in the ETC. section, pg: 274

its been a while, but i recall her looking much like sophia but with a long white coat, and a kinda bland style white outfit, if you can understand me at all. Lord knows I can't.
Anyway, to be relevent. what material should mighty joe's pants and coat be made out of, you think hes a leather man, or a fabric fella?

Don't worry about doubles.... It's okay if we have two Sophias. :)

Speaking of Sophia.... Does anyone remember for sure what the bottom of Mother Sophia's dress looked like? Does it puff out a little, like a ball gown, or is it fairly straight, like a Clergy Gown? ^^;

I'm fairly certain it is Clergy Gown style.

As for anyone worried about doubles.....I know certain groups like to state no doubles, and want to get as much of the unique cast as possible.

But this is our Xeno group :D and we just wanna see the largest group of Xeno cosplay ever and have a killer photoshoot for it all. Doubles are fine. Triples are fine. I could care less if we had 10 Chu Chu's running around O_o;;;;;

Just bring your Xeno costume and don't worry about having a twin :bigtu:

w00t for Xeno group ^_^

I would honestly try to make the pants look leather :bigtu: The coat I'm not sure of but probably leather looking to match.

Wai! Caryn do Mother Sophia if you want to, we don't mind having two Great Mothers around ^_^

But if you at all feel like doing Zeboim-era Elly like Recca and Emmy stated, perhaps we can find a Kim to compliment that costume as well.

In case you wanted a Sophia screenshot, I FINALLY have one for you:

http://www.xgam.org/img-archive/psm_ingame/034.jpg

I had to rape the Xenogears board at GameFAQs for this! I'm SO happy I finally found it-- I thought I'd save you (or anyone else who wanted to cosplay as Sophia!) the trouble of trying to find it. :)

Ok, I'll do it. AFter all, I have my Elly costume, and someone at Otakon last year did say I was the closest he'd ever seen to a 'perfect' Elly...so why the hell not. LOL

Mizuho
02-26-2003, 01:42 AM
Which Elly are you going to be for Otakon, Kaitou-san? The Zeboim Elly, or did I misread? ^^;; I'm just curious :D You do make an AWESOME Elly!

Oh yeah, is that a wig or your real hair in your avatar? :thumbsup:

Normal Elly. I would make Zeboim era if I didn't have my Suikoden and Queen Emeraldas costumes to make. As for the hair, thats a wig. My hair is red (well, red-gold) but i didn't want to cut bangs, lol.

Whew...well, somebody ruined the surprise, so I'll just officially announce here that I'm doing young Krelian at ACen -- and should I have enough money to get to Otakon after AX, I will definitely bring him with.

And -that's- just so peeps stop bugging me to be Yui >_<*

No problem....no pose can be more more odd than some of the Katsucon ones O_o

Which reminds me...I will now go scan in some full-length shots of some of us obscure characters. Please stand by.

Wow, that's so cool that you guys are doing Xenogears cosplay. Hardly anybody cosplays as Xenogears chara's. ^_^ I'm going to cosplay as Xenosaga's Kirschwasser, but this is for Anime Expo '03 in Anaheim, CA. Are any of you guys going to AX'03?
Oh yeah, speaking of Xenogears, I am planning to go as Kelvina for AX '04. ;)

02-27-2003, 11:11 AM
Yay for Kelvena! I dunno who Kirschwasser is, buuut I'm sure I will soon enough.....NO SPOILERS PLZ! ^_^v

Actually yes, I know for sure that I will have my Kahr Ramsus costume ready for AX03 and Alaria is going to have Miang as well...Solarians rule!!

Welcome to the boards! ^^;

02-27-2003, 11:17 AM
Oh, so you are going to be at AX '03? (And you are going to be Ramsus?) Awsome! That's great that there will be some Xenogears folks at AX '03. I can't wait! *Hey, when I'm there, I'll be sure to take pictures w/ you guys* ;)
Yay for Xeno cosplayers! ^_^
Thanks for the warm welcome. *happy*

hehe, I'm going to be creating a banner with Ramsus for the XenOtakon 2K3 group. If I can get a source file made I can make everyone a sig banner for the group with their character featured :D

Would you all want a custom sig image like that?

khamryn
02-28-2003, 09:18 AM
Psythe- Ooooo *_* Give me more excuses to practice newly gained Photoshop knowledge!! Hehehehe. What's the sig requirement? ~_^ As an OT thing I told my friend you're doing Ramsus and she looked extremely happy. ^_^ Hehehe.
