Well, the CTcon '04 thread was getting pretty long...and besides! CTcon '04 is over! We need to get thinking about next year (even though it's over 10 months away :thumbsup: ). Anyway, here's our new CTcon thread guys! =D and even though I know some people already posted in the other thread, what do you plan to do for next year (if you've decided yet, that is!)? I'm planning on doing either Kagome from InuYasha or Lina Inverse from Slayers (if not both!)

well... *talks to no one...>.< lol* I think I've decided: I'm definatly making a Lina Inverse costume for CTcon '05! Idealy, I'd make something else too...but as if I have that kind of time >.< ack...lol, maybe I'll wear one of my old costumes or something...like update my Miaka costume with a wig or something and be Yui...or make some new earrings and use my Yuna costume to be Lenne...or just wear my Kaylee (from Firefly/Serenity) that I have yet to finish >.< lol....

whoa!!! there's a connecticon thread already!! w00t!


haha, i have no idea what I'm going to be wearing for Connecticon, i want to make something that's definetly going to be cool to wear,...swimwear was way too hot last year. Plus I might be trying to get a spot in artist's alley, and the alley last year was like a sauna...>_<

either way, everything' still up in the air, but I want to do at least one anime costume, and then one sci-fi costume. Hopefully I'll my friends will go and we can stay all 3 days, rather than just one this year.

Gale

whoa!!! there's a connecticon thread already!! w00t!

hey, I'm here! of course there's a thread already =P haha

that's cool that you want to be in the artist's alley. I'll definatly come check out your stuff there. I never really looked into that sort of stuff before; what does it involve? do you sell stuff there? or just show your work? or can you do either? I'd never dare to do that with my work! lol...I'm much more confidant in my preforming art talents than visual arts!

JacksUsername
10-15-2004, 11:08 AM
i should have known you'd make the thread, you're like the connecticon expert :-P

as far as artist alley goes, last year they had people charge 50 dollars per table, and then you can bring whatever you like. Some people do it just to help adviertise and get the word out about their art and give out links to sites, while others go for selling the art and also giving out links so people can buy more of their stuff online. The only problem is that you're like secluded from the rest of the con >_<

ou! mew pudding, bring Juei from Utena!! lol , Utena rocks

Mew_Pudding
10-16-2004, 06:52 PM
I`d love too! I bet I can get our whole group to come as our Utena characters! (Anthy, Miki, Utena, Shiori, more to come. =D) I LOVE Utena, it`s so djerned cool! =D

JacksUsername
10-16-2004, 10:56 PM
whoaaaaaaaaaaaa, if you get a utena group i need to get pictures!!

Mew_Pudding

Yay! ^_^ *Runs around in circles with party hat* Hey! If your going to AnimeNEXT, were wearing our Utena costume`s there first! n.n

Hopefully I'll be able to go to Connecticon next year. x_x

I have nooo idea what I'm going to wear, though. 11 or Polaris from X-Day are possiblities, and improved versions of some of my costumes I wore this year to AnimeNEXT (Kaoru, Nami, and I made an Akane... but didn't get to wear it!! ><) Or maybe I could make an Arwen costume... or a Hogwarts student. Hmm. *goes off to ponder*

JacksUsername
10-18-2004, 01:43 AM
aw, i can't make it to anime next, but be sure to get a many pictures of utena group :-P

ou, sickness, good luck with being able to attend, its a really fun con, last year was my first and it was a blast.

Gale
10-30-2004, 09:24 PM
ok.....so....new idea....I think instead of Lina I'm gunna be Vash (or "vash-ette")...but I don't know...I'll probably be really busy helping my friends make costumes too (one of them wants to be Lime from SMJ and the other is undecided)

omg...I can't decide what to make!!!

I found a really nice wig, actually, that is JUST like Hikaru's (from Rayearth) hair. JUST like it. of course, I'm not all that into Rayearth, but oh well...maybe I can sometime hook up with Kairi G and do a Rayearth group... lol...

also, my "Songstress Yuna 2.0" is comming along =) except for the fact that I sort of broke my necklace >.< it still works, but I have to attach the clasp to just a random tiny link, so its kind of hard to fasten. I found a pretty good wig too. its a bit too puffy and kind of too red-ish brown, and the bangs are fixed so I can't really alter them much, plus I cant decide if I'm going to alter it to be more like FFX-2 Yuna or more or less leave it as is so I can be regular Yuna *shrugs*

hmm...this is slowly but surely getting off topic....

lol, anyway, *heads back on topic* anyone have any ideas for a group or something? it might be able to inspire me to decide what to cosplay ;^^

Mew_Pudding
10-31-2004, 09:30 AM
Oo, Gale, where did you find the Hikaru wig? I woudl like to do a Hikaru sometime in 2006 I believe. n.n ;

Gale
10-31-2004, 12:07 PM
lol, it was at a party store and it's called "funky wig" or something like that. all I have to do to alter it is cut off a little purple strand that hangs down my cheek, maybe cut the short part of it, and braid the long part of it. If I find out the company or something else that might help you find one, I'll be sure to tell you ;)

Mew_Pudding
10-31-2004, 12:40 PM
OO, Thankies!! (I am REALLY bad with wigs. XD; So, the easier the better. n.n ) *Sigh* Connecticon is so far away... v.v At least I`ll have my Juri done by the end of January. >.<

Gale
10-31-2004, 08:43 PM
It looks like (at least as of now) my friend Amy wants to come next year! we'll see if she still is saying the same thing in a few months. my other friend Tiff might be comming too; if she does I'll have to help her with a Lime (SMJ) costume. I hope they can. Then maybe I can ditch my mom compleatly for once and have some more fun! Also, since I'll finally not be comming straight from camp, I can a) come all three days! and b) not be compleatly overtired and running on 0 to 2 hours of sleep (like the past 2 years). maybe I can even drive myself! I'll be 18 by then...although...driving in hartford? *shudders* even more, driving on the high way (to hartford) *shudders more* lol...so, maybe not...but we'll see.

JacksUsername
11-01-2004, 02:05 AM
lol, driving anywhere in new england is definetly shudder worthy.

I was thinking of trying to do a Buffy group...but there isnt really much in the way of costumes, I just like basking in the greatness of Whedon characters, and I was thinking of one of the Gentleman from "Hush". But I still have no clue what I'm doing for sure...

ack. Must think...

11-06-2004, 09:22 AM
Wow, 18? If I had a car (and money) I`d be at cons all over the place. XD; My friends think we should bring our AzuManga Daioh costumes but, I`d rather bring my Juri I think. >.<

collage of connecticon 2004 cosplay pics! =)

well, my car is mostly short distance...its 20 years old ^^; going on 21! (hey, it can legally drink! lol) and because of boarding school I don't get much practice on the road. therefore the highway, among other things, terrifies me. in collage, as long as I have enough money, I plan to go to lots of cons. I also plan to start an anime club (since to my knowledge none of the schools I'm applying to have one yet), but that's another story.

Gale
11-26-2004, 11:40 AM
you know....I've been thinking...maybe I shouldn't bother stressing myself out over a big costume this year and I should just make a Firefly costume to wear. CTcon is anime & sci fi, so it woudln't be nearly as out of place as it will be at AB...and I really want to make a few Kaylee costumes...and the sci fi catigroy tends to have less entrants...besides, I can spread the word about Serenity!!! ;) I should make the chinese jacket one for the contest, unless I have the guts to try and make her pink dress! lol....

since the vast majority of you don't know what Firefly is (other than an amazing show that I love and worship) here's some pics of the costumes I want to try from it:

Kaylee's chinese jacket (http://still-flying.net/images/serenity/index.php?p=serenity183.jpg&pg=3) from episode titled Serenity
maybe Kaylee's fancy dress (http://still-flying.net/images/shindig/index.php?p=shindig143.jpg&pg=2) from Shindig
Kaylee's outfit (http://still-flying.net/images/jaynestown/index.php?p=jaynestown048.jpg&pg=0) (2 (http://still-flying.net/images/jaynestown/index.php?p=jaynestown303.jpg&pg=5)) from Jaynestown
Kaylee's dress (http://still-flying.net/images/themessage/index.php?p=themessage008.jpg&pg=0) (2 (http://still-flying.net/images/themessage/index.php?p=themessage009.jpg&pg=0), 3 (http://still-flying.net/images/themessage/index.php?p=themessage010.jpg&pg=0)) from The Message
and definatly Kaylee's outfit (http://still-flying.net/images/objectsinspace/index.php?p=objects011.jpg&pg=0) (2 (http://still-flying.net/images/objectsinspace/index.php?p=objects241.jpg&pg=4), 3 (http://still-flying.net/images/objectsinspace/index.php?p=objects382.jpg&pg=7)) from Objects in Space

Horray For CT cosplayers! our FFX crew will probably be poping up on probably 2 out of 3 days lol. il be some form of Yuna and if you have a hard time spotting me i might be toteing a little 9-month-old asian girl dressed as Yuna or Aeris arround with me. (my best guy friend's mom is adopting a little girl from china and im calling her cibi yunie and she will be the newest addittion to our ct cosplay family) lol i wonder how manny people im going to have to tell that she isn't my daughter lol. -Aseret yuna

cool, memories of yuna, what other ffx charactesr are going to be into your crew.?

the collage is mighty cool, gale. i might bring firefly costumes too, but i'm still not sure...connecticon is definetly the right place though. Go for the fancy dress!! its shiny!

Gale
11-29-2004, 02:07 PM
cool, Go for the fancy dress!! its shiny!

yah, AND IT'S A HOOP SKIRT! omg...all those ruffles....suuuuu pretty, but also SO hard! If I make that one, it will probably be something I spread out over a few summers to make.

11-29-2004, 06:58 PM
^.^ at the moment i really don't know but i really hope i have my chibi by then so Chibi Yunie can make an appearence. i don't know if im entering the contest or not. if i do im bringing my chibi and tidus with me. ^_^ High summoner Yuna shall blesseth thou! -Aseret Yuna

looking at a calander, I'd say its going to be the 17, 18, 19 of July, and for once I won't be comming straight from summer camp! yay! lol

MemoriesofYuna
12-01-2004, 06:41 PM
Yay. then us losers can hop on a train and act like idiots up there! i hope theres a bunch of Yunas. i want to see some competition! ^_^ i think at CT con 2006 or AB 2006 i might get a spot in the dealers room instead of Just cosplaying. buy my plushies and help this summoner feed her starving moogle and chibi. ^_^ -Aseret Yuna

Gale
12-01-2004, 09:35 PM
there actually weren't many Yunas there last year; I was surprised to be the only songstress yuna on saterday. I did, however, breifly see a gunner yuna and I hung out with a gunmage yuna durring the competition, and a Lenne too. the one costume there was a lot of, though, was Kagome. then again, it seems like almost every cosplayer dresses as a character from either Inu Yasha, Final Fantasy X/X-2, or both at some point! lol

Gale
12-01-2004, 09:54 PM
ack...correction: (I was looking at a June calendar) CTcon '05 is July 15-17

MemoriesofYuna
12-02-2004, 03:33 PM
lol i am a Yuna ALWAYS ^_^ hey it's still on my birthday. and the saturday would be my birthday lol Bless me in the costume competition. hmmm only 3? that's odd i would expect more. *shrug* oh well that means there would have been 4 if i had time. i found out about it this year like a week in advance and was like "if im going then i would need the simplest most braindead thrown together in a week costume ever.... kagome." then was like eh im broke forget it. then realized after making wedding Yuna if i did make kagome it would have been done in time easily *curses luck and empty pockets*

i know this year it was insanely close to otakon. this time i have everything planned out so il see you all at ct con, anime boston and Otakon. -Aseret Yuna

Gale
12-02-2004, 05:27 PM
I almost went to Anime Boston on my 16th birthday. I was going to dress as Aya from Ayashi no Ceres, 'cause it was also Easter (I felt that was sorta meaningfull, comparing the storyline with Aya's 16th b-day & all) but it didn't work out >.<

gosh...I wish I had more time on my hands...and a space for a sewing machine in my dorm room! I want to get going on my costumes! but I don't have a job yet, so my mom still has to basically pay for my supplies so its kind of hard to get anything done >.< I need fabric!!!! gah....

MemoriesofYuna
12-02-2004, 05:37 PM
ugh! i hate that! i just got a job it pays great but my hours SUCK! i only work one day of the week. i wants meh to start on yuna! *cries* seriosuly if i am still not done by THEN (which will NOT HAPPEN seeing as i have a photoshoot in it in march and other Gatherings) Wedding Yuna will be paying the convention a lovely visit. im spazzing out cause im broke and have to start! i have 11 costumes to be done by august! AHHH! this ct con we should have a cosplayer conga line. -Aseret Yuna

Gale
12-03-2004, 09:01 AM
11 costumes? why so many? all for you, or are some commissions? lol...I'd never commit myself to so many in one year! I'm sticking to about 2 per year max so far, but I'd like to be able to do more. we'll see.

MemoriesofYuna
12-03-2004, 03:33 PM
*crys* well otakon 2005. bringing 2 friends. both want to cosplay, neiter know how to sew *crys histerically* and we need to get started soon! i have 2 that need to be done for anime boston then 9 for otakon. im gonna like force them to be random easy characters lol. i thought one of them was gonna be selphie (easy and cheap thank god!) then decided to be Rinoa (NO! NO NO NO!)

Summoner Yuna
wedding Yuna
Gunner Yuna
Mascot Yuna
Dark Knight Yuna
Warrior Paine
Lulu
Rinoa
3 other random ones for Lenne.

*crys* i will never finish in time! (decides to make the ballgown dress and forces Paine to be happy)

well at least il be ready for CT con. then everyone can see my Beautiful Summoner Yuna. that thing is going on a tour for the next 5 years. -Aseret Yuna

Gale
12-04-2004, 02:02 PM
haha, yah, I'm redoing my Songstress Yuna for AB '05 since it was so last minute and such for CTcon '04. I'm still debating weather or not I'll wear a wig, though. I'm growing my hair out, but its not too long for Yuna yet, of course that could be argued. I just don't really like the wig I bougght. *should have brought the supermodle wig, not the starlet wig >.<*

anyway, after that's done with I need to figure out my plans for CTcon. I'm making at least one Kaylee (firefly) costume (see above post for links to pics), but all that entails are top two pair of coveralls/jumpsuits and several shirts, a chinese jacket, then MAYBE a simple-ish dress. I'd love to make her hoop-skirt, but I'm still learning, and with my limited abilities and all that one entails its too much. I can't decide if I should do an anime one too though....we'll see how everything else goes; maybe I'll have a part time job by then and I can afford more fabric, and maybe I'll have enough time to do a simple schoolgirl outfit like Kagome's or something. of course...I might also be making costumes for friends too >.< we'll see...all the firefly ones seem pretty easy, and I'd probably only have to make one more of those for a friend cosplaying as River.

MemoriesofYuna
12-04-2004, 02:36 PM
I love the big poofey dress! Horray for CT con! ive neve been before and the sites down so i can't check the statistics but do you guys know on an average how manny people attend? i know it's rather small i just want to know how small to judge wether i should enter the costume contest or not. thanks! -Aseret Yuna

Gale
12-05-2004, 09:15 AM
well, look at pictures in my gallery of my songstress yuna costume. I won a prize for that. also, in my connecticon section I posted pictures of the winners. It's not a big enough con to have major competition yet but its growing every year. In other words, sure, enter the competition! As long as you're compleatly anal about details, and you didn't make a somewhat easy costume (read: any school uniform) you have a pretty good shot.

edit: here's a link to my pic of the contest winners:
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=169761

there were several catigories (most prizes won by cosplay.com members):
anime (adult), anime (under 13-Mew_Pudding), games (adult-Gale), game (under 13), Sci Fi (SpikeSpiegal), 3 judges awards (Michela & Laerry), and original design (not pictured).

there was also a skit competition.

JacksUsername
12-05-2004, 09:23 PM
yeah, its a good size for its location...the con never feels empty or densely populated, but it hasn't reached the point of "way too crowded" yet. The masquerade was nice, a very relaxed atmosphere.

the only problem i had was the artist alley....it was like a sauna, but they moved them later in the day, so it was pretty cool too.

MemoriesofYuna
12-08-2004, 05:48 PM
yay. congrats gale. ok. cause i was planing on entering my Summoner into Otakon but i don't know anymore. oh believe me.... if it's not perfect.... i DIE! and remake it. and so my wedding yuna has met it's tragic End. Yhea i think i might enter. and if i don't win something then i can compete at otakon. yay not to crowded. i understand it's a fairly small area. -Aseret Yuna

Gale
12-08-2004, 09:21 PM
if you do an x-2 costume, I KNOW you'll get extra points for your rat tail. also, remember to smile and work the stage as much as you can. I was lucky enough to come to the con after 2 weeks of acting camp, so my stage prescence was as good as ever, but if you just stand there and turn stiffly like a "deer in headlights" you won't do that well. it's not all the costume quality, but your presentation too.

MemoriesofYuna
12-08-2004, 09:33 PM
yhea i go to acting school every day. i love my tail! sadly i thin were gonna show up in X seeing as were too poor to make yet another costume. im working on summoner now (Litterally) and i think it's gonna turn out great and my ponytail will go forgotten. X-2 will be there the following year and years after however. and im trying to get my Rat tail in full lengh by the time im 19 but im shooting for 2-3 years of growth. it shall grow! IT SHALL GROW! ^_^ it's gonna be so fun to see you guys! CT cosplayers rule! -Aseret Yuna

lol, Lee Anne, sorry! should have specified; I was talking ty Yuna...but good luck in...um...figuring out what costume to make....and not being confused! lol

btw, what are your ideas as of yet? or do you have compleatly no clue what you want to dress as?

Lee Anne
12-10-2004, 10:45 AM
I can make a random guess to what I might have done. Is it just anime based only? It will help me to focus on something after next month.

Gale
12-11-2004, 09:44 AM
no, this one's big on Sci Fi too...but a LOT of the cosplayers are anime/game-themed. next year I'm doing a sci fi theme though (Kaylee Frye from Firefly/Serenity)

12-11-2004, 03:57 PM

Gale
12-11-2004, 10:08 PM
I think I already said this somewhere, but some year I want to drag my dad along & we can dress as Samantha & Caleb Carter from Stargate SG1! XD He's actually pretty amused with most of the sci fi stuff I watch, too, so it makes it more fun. I doubt he'd go out of his way to watch any of it, but he's glad to see it with me when I am.

smellme37
12-22-2004, 02:43 PM
wow, thats funny because I was just talking to my friend, as we drove through Hartford the other day, about when they might decide to move the con to the new convention center. I figured it wouldn't be for a few years. Oh well, I think I'm gonna miss the old location, but I can't really complain about having more room.

GO CONNECTICON !!!

=P Anime Boston '03 was on my 16th birthday....of course it was also on Easter (yes, my 16th b-day fell on Easter, and no it was not cool; it sucked because everyone had plans!) so my plans to dress as Aya from Ayashi No Ceres (for my 16th b-day, on easter...get it? lol) were foiled >.<

anyway....*sees Yuna's con planner*HEY! the 2005 planner is up? since when! *goes to edit hers*

i'm actually trying to figure out what i should do for overnights too...I live an hour away from Hartford, and I don't like driving at night, and I especially don't like driving on the highway....but I don't want my mom to come with me, since I'll be 18....but if I bring my friend she can only come for part of the time....so I don't know what to do....I can't share a room with any cosplayers 'cause that would tell my mom I've been chatting with you people online...and she'd like ground me until I'm 30 (as if she's ever grounded me before, but she'd at least take away my internet for the whole summer)....so I don't know what I'm going to do...maybe I can talk to my friend from Karate, but I'm not sure that would work out either >.<;;;

I might (BIG might there) be going as Kagome for one day...if I do it will be Friday or Sunday, most likely. It depends on how many other costumes I get done. I also want to make a Lina Inverse (slayers) costume, and (since CTcon is Sci Fi too) I've got a character I want to make a few costumes of from a sci fi show I love called Firefly (check further back in the topic and you'll find reference pictures). When summer gets here I'll have a better idea of what will be happening. Hope to see you there ;)

Well our plans have definately changed XD. if i DO enter the costume competition i thnik my chances just went down due to the fact that my rat tail is now gone *points to gallery* but im dragin Tenjoue with me and i think were going to try and make a profit on friday and sunday with Selling Moggle hug's for $1 each in my mascot Yuna. no clue yet but were going on a tour with mascot and i think we will be hitting CT con. i do hope they update the site soon. We need to start working and need more details and such :#. we should have a little cosplay.com gathering out of the like... 7 of us here XD -Aseret Yuna

be carefull with that; I know that sort of thing isn't allowed at Anime Boston according to their TOS. Check over the site before you decide on that....AB doesn't even let you do soliciting for free hugs, let alone paied ones, and even though CTcon is a different con entirely, I'm still not sure it would work out.

also...I saw your gallery! I think you chose to do the right thing. That rat tail would have gotten annoying. I'm proud of you for keeping it so long though ;) and I LOVE your new haircut!!!

I would love to do an unoficial gathering of cosplay.com members, probably Saterday at some point. I don't know yet if I could attend (depending on weather or not my parents come or not) but I still think its a good idea.

so, I'm an idiot...a compleat and utter careless idiot: I just deleated my whole CTcon 2003 album by mistake. I was trying to deleat my "Anime Boston: Comming Soon!" album, 'cause the thumbnail glitch was affecting it, and I just ended up deleating my CTcon album instead. I'm so upset with myself right now.

Anyway, to make my point, does anyone have any pictures of CTcon 2003? I lost all but 3 that I had saved on my laptop. I probably have some at home on my other computer, but I'd like to get more pics back up before then. I'd credit & all, and be MUCH abliged.

I only have like 6 pictures from last Connecticon in my gallery, the rest of my photos came out really bad from poor exposure, especially the masquerade shots, so I just put most of the ones that came out in my gallery.

My sister and I are going to cosplay as Piyoko and Dejiko, respectively, from DiGi Charat. I'm having some second thoughts now, as it seems like Connecticon is more about gaming and comics. Any anime there seems to be, as someone said already, "sci-fi" related. However, I've already booked tickets and everything, so I'll definately be there!

it may be advertised like that, but truely its not (least not in my experiance and I'm a CTcon oldbie). The costume contest especially is usally dominated by anime characters and they have plenty of anime related stuff to do. yes, they do have sci fi stuff too, but all that's just a fun plus to those super-geeky ones of us that like that too. ;)

Oh, great!! ^_^

Don't get me wrong, I love sci-fi! Also, in fact, I actually am a bigger fan of sci-fi than anime, and more a fan of comics than manga (I know, I should be shot!) Hee, I was just worried about walking around in a super-chibi outfit when there's a bunch of the more serious sci-fi things going on. :jjacks:

Yeah, I was originally planning to go as Usagi from Sailormoon (an artbook image) but then I decided to do something non-anime, not really because it's advertised as a Sci-Fi convention, but because I'm going to so many other cons this year that ARE dominated by anime. But in the end, it's up to you. You can show up as Legolas at an anime convention, and those that give you lip about it just aren't worth your time. Likewise, you could show up as anime character at a sci-fi convention, and no one important will really care.

that's exactly my feeling about it! back when I thought I was going to Anime Boston, I was thinking about weather or not to wear my Kaylee (Firefly) costume and discussing weather or not to meet a group there and do anything together...but for many reasons that didn't work out and planns changed...but ulitmately we changed the group to meet at ctconn, where a sci fi costume would be so much more welcome. had I time I'd love to showcase an anime costume too, but I honestly don't!

actually, if I have time, and we don't end up getting our act together enough to enter a skit into the competition, I'll try to make a Lina Inverse costume, since I've been wanting to since I was 14 (*ghasp* almost 4 years? :mfg: ) and I think it would show off more ability in a contest (if I can pull it off)...of course, entering into the sci fi catigory would almost guarentee me a prize, if they acknowladge the catigory, since it will be so sparse...but I so need another excuse to buy another wig! lol

Just thought I'd poke my head in here for a second. I would recommend any groups thinking about cosplaying as a group to seriously considerate, as it could let you participate in an event I am planning at this year's con.

More details once I get these monkeys to stop throwing poo at each other and write me up a decent set of rules.....

I know I'm in a group....but just to encourage more of you to do the same!

I'm not a huge fan or anything, but I'm just psyched to see a VA's name that I recoginze on the guest list!!! we're movin' up in the world of con's! just a little while ago, people were saying "ctcon? eww...you mean that tiny, lame con in hartford?" (although, I always corrected them and never agreed with such things) and now we have a well known VA as a guest!!!! *tear* I'm so happy!!

edit: OK! I am going to do work NOW! lol....

Aseret, it was fun ;) but now my increasingly little time for my history term paper and other homework calls :sulk:

I dont think they were saying " That small con in Hartford?" I think they were saying "Where the heck is Connecticut?" And belive me that has happened before. I think there should be more cons in either Connecticut..

hmm....had I the money and did I live any farther away, I'd rent a hotel, but as it is I live only an hour down I-95 (via I-84) and I'll probably have to drive a friend who can only come on Sat. and as if my parents would let me stay in a hotel with near-strangers in hartford....*grumble* lol....

Yhea. >< i hate being 14 and such simply cause i can't get a hotel room on my own and have to drag parents or someone 18 and over there with me. ><!! like my mom's coming with us to otakon and is gonna wonder arround baltimore for 3 days. i really just wish there was more of a way for younger cospalyers to get arround you know? Were pondering hacking up the money for the Marriot thats built into the center or just being little hobo's and chillin at motel 6 XD. i think my mom would trust us in a hotel with near strangers due to the fact it's a convention but im basically screwd there. oh well if all else fails we'll live at the con and bring my hair straightener and lots of deoderant ^^.
(im showing up to a con one day as the deoderant fairy and handing out sticks of deoderant and axe to the smelly fanboys of america)

their being oh so secretive about this event ><! and it's DRIVING ME CRAZYYY!!!! it makes me think that theyre not giving it away to us cosplayers so it will be really candid. >< candid things SUCK with me!

*falls out of chair laughing at your signature*

*sigh* I'd have a post about it in my gallery, but my friend Amy's roommate Irene (who graciously took a pic of me last night) has yet to e-mail me the pictures. I wouldn't be so worried except for the fact that she also still hasn't e-mailed me the pictures she took of us at Halloween either....

in any case, before I've lost the newness and excitement so much that I forget to tell the story...last night I tried (as I've been doing once a month for the past 5 months) to put my hair in odangos...and when I found that I could, I got all giddy and shoved on a sweatshirt (so people wouldn't think I'm a freaky wierd anime/asian-loving geek....dispite the fact that that's common knowledge anyway...) and ran over to Amy's hall to show off to her...and Irene and their neighbor Tina were there giving help to Rae who's in our physics class...and dispite the fact that all but Amy are asians, only Amy was unphased by my hyper-active-usagi-ness. Rae asked me a q about our physics project and insisted that I calm down and breath (when I was acting perfectly normal & fine and was so not out of breath! lol) and then I made Irene take a picture of me. Then I yelled at Amy in chinese to "shut up" (with Irene's help, of course) but that's another story all together :thumbsup:

has anyone ever done that before? lived at the con? ive never heard of it! id be perfectly fine with living there and taking a nap in an anime screening room or a hallway XD. Doooooont think my Costumes would like it though. Even if the Bow of my obi is a pillow. and were probably gonna have to change sooner or later. Sunday we might parade about in our inuyasha atire ^^.

Hotels and Chibi's DONT MIX! and were gonna rave it up to >< gonna want a shower and some febreeze after that. yay! i get to rave on my birthday! i think they would end up kicking us out at some point. hmmm.... if theres like 5 of us a full weekend and hotel would be like $50 each. could happen. NEED MORE PEOPLE!

Due to our little Inuyasha obsession we might be Extra Cliche and wear those costumes on sunday with a whomping Cliche overdrive of FFX and Inuyasha. ^^ what more can you expect from us?! were US! -Aseret Yuna

I know I should be the one to answer this and not ask it, since I was there last year, but does anyone have any idea when the Rave is gunna be? I want to go, but I can't stay too late 'cause I've got to drive home and it takes an hour....luckilly aside from the in the city stuff its a familiar rout (I just haven't driven it much....) but I'm still hesitant on staying out too long. I'd like to plan it so I'm home well before midnight!

Well...what happened..was...fate smiled down on us and we found we could afford to go to San Diego Comi con...and the two overlap each other. Obviously, my honey is more leaning towards Comi con because...well...we had a bad experiance...I said we had a bad experiance... :thumbsup: I'm still gonna lurk here after Conneticon...I wanna see pics! :)

Last year it started around 9pm maybe 10pm. I assume it will be similar this year. The only thing is that last year they shut it done early (around 11:30pm) because there were only a few people that actually showed up. I just decided to go back to the game rooms and play DDR. :thumbsup:

I went to it in '03 when they had the costume contest at like 10:30 durring it, but I only stayed until 10 'cause I'd hardly slept in nearly 40 hours (wow....I really had been up that long, hadn't I!) but last year, under similar circumstances, I just left after the contest and didn't bother to check out the rave. I really want to go this year though!

Does anyone know how the masq/costume competition is ran at the con?
Specifically, the different rules concerning where your costume comes from?
(Mostly, I'd want to know if my Cirque costume could be entered...)
Thanks! :heart:

Gale
02-23-2005, 05:28 PM
I think you can enter it. last year a girl entered an original design of her own, and won a prize. I'd say, as long as it's relativly good you probably have a better chance of getting a prize just because the genera is unique. I'm actually playing that card myself this year in entering a sci fi costume. I can ask on the OB for more specifics though, pending the info becoming avalible on the site

Otakon maybe MAYBE. i wont attempt that pettiecoat until i have a serger and more refrance. need to tape it off bravo ><! *sigh* but maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe i can get it for otakon. tiny little chance. i don't think im ready for a courset ><! and for saturday i think were gonna show off our warrior threads ^^.

Connecticon Wants You to join their forums!

yes, TheHappyGuy himself has announced that if we get 750 active members over on the CTcon forums in March he will do a jig opening night (what exactly that means, I'm not sure, but he said he'll do it!) So get going! Somebody's got to pass my top post count sometime, and I'd rather it be one of you ;)

uggg...I kinda want to make a hogwarts outfit...If i do it'd be Hannah Abbot 'cause I would so fit in Hufflepuff (I'm kind of shy and insanely loyal) and my real name is Hanna, so it amuses me XD

ooh! and Kairi! You're doing Pluto? haha...makes me want to try to re-do my sailor moon outfit from when I was 10...but...it was the store bought one wiht the collar stuffed so full it was like cardboard x.x sooo...maybe we'll just wait for my hair to actually grow out for that one....
