Ur video rox^^ You can hear my friends complaining in it, and kinda see them in the corner when you guys showed the line for the Camino concert going outside. They were the ones saying that it was hot outside^^

I <3 Videos.

11-06-2004, 06:27 PM
Awww... The Monster loves you too! XOXO

Thanks MarzGurl for putting up this video. I didn't make it out to oni-con this year because I'm helping out our military forces overseas. I really appeciate it and hopefully I'll get to see it all in person next year when I get back. Once again, thanks again for the video and keep up the good work.

Hey MarzGurl, I was just wondering if you got any footage of the friday night concerts by Camino or DJ. Or maybe even DJ's acoustic show on sunday maybe? Let me know if you did get any.

11-07-2004, 10:40 AM
megumibish - Yeah, it was right at that point in the masquarade where I confused my "Record" with "Stand-by" and when I found out two cosplayers later I was SOOO PISSED! So... I tried to find the best footage I could... but there was only so much I could do... :waaaah:

the only vash - I missed out on the concerts this year, and one of my teammates didn't show up until it was too late - he had another camera, and we had a lot to film. You know, I have over two hours of footage! It's crazy! If there's anything else you guys are looking for, ask me, and I may have it.

11-07-2004, 12:40 PM
Ooo... ooo... do you have a life for me? =D
I'm mad right now, I don't think I'll be able to get that mask again for KamiKazeCon.

There have been thoughts of making the monster an Oni-Con exclusive though, I'm not sure if these will become a reality though.

And very good job with the credits. When my friend's watched ya video they were surprised to see the credits dedicated to me.. ha ha

11-07-2004, 12:57 PM
Aw, Huggy, everybody loved you! So you had to have a chunk just for you. ^_^

11-07-2004, 12:59 PM
that was so cool! It felt like i was there :D

11-07-2004, 01:19 PM
Hug, you're the only sign guy that people actually liked. Most people I hear from that go to cons usually talk about how the people who carry around the hug me or glomp me signs are really annoying. But you were really cool. Oni-Con wouldn't have been the same without you dude.

11-07-2004, 01:27 PM
Marz, maybe I'll send you the footage of the Camino and DJ Q&A panel. The only other thing I have besides that were the skits. And I even missed out on a few. And maybe a few minutes of people waiting in line for different events. But now I will be prepared for any con that I go to. I got 24 DV tapes and 10 info lithium batteries for my camera.

11-07-2004, 01:49 PM
I'm sure there was the section of people who didn't enjoy my presence at the con. Then again, I can't expect everyone to enjoy me being around, it's not like I'm the most popular person in the world. Also, I love that you did with the whole making me move slow MarzGurl, very poetic in a sense.

11-07-2004, 04:46 PM
the only vash - I'd love to have the concert footage. ^_^ Hit me up with a PM or an IM on either AIM or MSN. Or just plain e-mail me. That always works.

The video was totally fun to work with. I love creating con videos. I'd love to do more. I have high plans to work with Ushicon, too.

11-07-2004, 06:48 PM
MarzGurl maybe some time at one of the cons in the future you'll be able to capture the man behind the monster on film, but you're going to have to let me know if you want to.

11-07-2004, 09:37 PM
Dude, I'd totally do that with you! What's your next con again?

11-07-2004, 10:56 PM
KamiKaze here in Houston.
After that I plan on heading over to Dallas to attend A-Kon

11-08-2004, 02:18 AM
that would be a great little file on its own. hehe

11-08-2004, 10:20 AM
KamikazeCon is questionable to my arrival right now, but A-Kon is a definate go. Either way, looks like I'll be seeing you within the next 4 - 7 months. ^_^

11-08-2004, 12:19 PM
i didnt see it yet, but you didnt catch talim's weapons breaking on stage with xianghua, did ya ^^ hehe

11-08-2004, 03:05 PM
Not a problem, MarzGurl. I'll have to send you a picture of me sometime, so you can catch me if I'm not wearing a costume at the time.

You can contact via MSN or YIM, just ask for one of them and I'll give it to you.

11-08-2004, 08:24 PM
Kyandi-Chan: Yeah, I did catch the entire skit, including that prop breaking. I thought it was sad. T_T You see the prop I'm holding in my avatar? I broke off the tip of one of those blades at A-kon. I was SO sad! Luckily a friend of mine actually CARRIED superglue around, so it was all good... but it still just wasn't the same. Tell me if you want a copy of the full skit and I'd be happy to get the clip for you. ^_^

Hug_the_Monster: I'll be adding you to my MSN contact list shortly.

11-09-2004, 03:14 AM
Marz, did you catch the skit with the costume designer guy? You know, the one where the girl was wearing a skirt under her pants. If so please let me know. I regret not getting that one on film.

11-09-2004, 07:34 PM
Being a digital art student, I must commend you on the quality of the video... Kept my attention really well. ^_^ I enjoyed it thoroughly... yay, got to see myself doing the butt shake on stage finally. ^^;;

11-09-2004, 10:07 PM
the only vash: I got ALL of EVERY skit. I'm going to be attempting to upload that along with two other skits this week, if you want it.

11-09-2004, 10:08 PM
Scortia: Thanks! Glad you got to see yourself in action, too. ^_^

11-10-2004, 03:25 AM
Thanks a lot MarzGurl. I'll be looking foward to it. Oh, somewhat good news. I got my firewire card working. Maybe soon I'll be able to send you the footage I got.

11-10-2004, 12:42 PM

omg the video...it really did ...keep me entertained cuz im so ADD. i loooooved it. and it was nicely edited and very funny ^^ my boyfriend liked it too! esp the beginning, because the first hook is so difficult to keep ya watching. ^^ i got to see skits that i missed.

i wanna see the skit! i want a copy and like whooo that would be awesome. seee...i was kinda blacking out on stage LOL and i wanna see how well i survived. i know i stopped talking. but the foot grab!! the foot grab! classic.

i wonder when they snapped exactly...i kinda played it off.

11-10-2004, 01:31 PM
Yep, I'm finding more web space. So these skits'll go up online soon.

11-10-2004, 03:34 PM
Downloaded the video this morning and saw my Sound group from Naruto on stage with Rock Lee for about three or five seconds. That ruled. XD

11-10-2004, 06:31 PM
MarzGurl, let us know when you get the skits uploaded.

11-14-2004, 03:30 PM
HAHA!! i cant wait!! yeah, i wanna see the others skits, and see when my weapons broke!! >.<!! hehe, no worries about the weapons tho... i'm remaking them... making them alot more stronger.. i love how it took me a while to realize that i wasnt holding a complete prop on stage... lmao! thank you Marzgurl for taping and uploading the skits (er, thanking you for advance)!! hehe

11-14-2004, 04:33 PM
I had a little trouble getting some more space the other day, so getting the skits up will be a little longer than expected, but I'll be posting when I get it. It won't be FOREVER, though, so don't worry. ^_^

11-16-2004, 08:21 AM
Ok, I won't worry. Oh yeah, I was also wondering, are you also gonna put up footage of Cherry, Gren, and Jase entertaining the audience?

11-16-2004, 03:38 PM
Unfortunately, I have next to no footage at all of the entertainment, 'cause what little I got was just so that I could get to the real meat of the program.

11-16-2004, 11:43 PM
ok, its no problem.

12-03-2004, 08:37 AM
hey MarzGurl, in case you ever check this forum again, I just wanted to let you know that I finally found out how to get my footage on the computer. Just thought you might like to know. Let me know if you might want to see it.

12-03-2004, 09:53 PM
You're lucky that I subscribe to every thread that I post in. b^_^ Sure, send it my way sometime. Look me up on one of my messengers that you see by my name.

12-09-2004, 03:03 PM
I LOVE the vid. You captured the essence of the Oni-con perfectly. I may live waaay outta state but i'm DEFENITELY going next year! Oh yeah! And when you guys were making jokes about having drinks for the con after you saw the Budweiser truck my friend and I were on the floor laughing. I think that truck did make a stop at the Oni-con because that's what Camino was drinking.....and a lot of it. :bigtu: :thumbsup:

12-09-2004, 03:33 PM
LOL, the Japanese actually have a taste for Budweiser? That's so cool! Kinda... >_> (Drinking is bad for you, kids!)

12-20-2004, 11:48 PM
Yay~ You got shots of me and Liz playing DDR! XD I didn't even notice anyone was watching... o_o;

12-21-2004, 12:57 AM
Yay, that was you guys! XD

12-23-2004, 09:42 AM
As I recall, there were two Hug the Monsters: one had a sign saying Glomp Me as well.
Kept me grinning for a while.

12-23-2004, 11:42 AM
Really? I think I remember that vaguely... but I dunno. O_o

01-04-2005, 08:21 PM
YOU RECORDED ME DANCING TO REAL EMOTIONS? Talk about how dumb I feel now...

How'd I do? x_x

01-04-2005, 11:01 PM
I liked the Monster! It was funny, I was on my way to the bathroom but he just demanded a hug. There's no refusing. I had to give one.

01-04-2005, 11:09 PM
Fallen)x(Angel - We loved you. ^_^ :love: :heart:

komadori - Wasn't he awesome? He was so huggable.

01-05-2005, 04:25 PM

If you have the whole thing on film and ever get the chance to upload it, I would die to see myself!

01-07-2005, 04:42 PM
I do have the whole thing. I'll upload it soon, and I'll send you a PM as soon as I do with the link. I'll leave it up for 30 days so that you can get a hold of it. b^_^

01-07-2005, 10:26 PM
Okay, cool!

Are you going to A-kon 16? My friend and I are planning to go as Rei and Asuka in their plugsuits if we get it done in time. (Stuipid legging layers... x_x)

01-07-2005, 10:29 PM
Oh, heck yeah, you bet I am! A-Kon last year is what made me wanna do this in the first place. I hope to see you there!

01-08-2005, 10:08 AM
Are you going to a video for A-kon 16?

01-08-2005, 02:35 PM
You HAVE to do another video for this year's Oni-con cause this one was hilarious. =^.^=

01-08-2005, 09:19 PM
You HAVE to do another video for this year's Oni-con cause this one was hilarious. =^.^=
Well... okay, just because you asked so very nicely. ~_^

01-08-2005, 09:52 PM
Nice Fujin, by the way MarzGurl!

*bows twice*

I can't believe your actually talking to me...I feel so...holy! x_x

01-08-2005, 10:03 PM
Wow... are you actually saying that about me? @_@

I should start uploading that now. ^_^; Like I said before, I'll PM you when I'm ready.

01-08-2005, 10:16 PM
Why WOULDN'T I be saying that about you??!!!? You're like...so HIGH, and I'm so.... low... x_x *tear* Kind of lowers my self-esteem when I think hard about it, but I do feel important to actually be talking to you!

01-08-2005, 10:52 PM
Dude. Your dance was seriously teh l33t awesome. It takes major guts to get up there and dance like that. You are t3h roxor.

01-08-2005, 10:57 PM
*Bows twice again*

You really think so? I was so afraid everyone was going to hate it...

Talk about no self-esteem x_x

01-08-2005, 11:03 PM
Well, I COULD just post a link to your dance for EVERYbody to see and get their opinions. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

But, no. I won't do that yet.

P.S. - It's uploading right now. XD

01-08-2005, 11:07 PM

You wouldn't...would you?

*long pause*


I act like such a child...I'm pathetic to call myself a pre-teen!!! *cries again*

01-08-2005, 11:09 PM
lol, nah, I wouldn't do that. I'd of course let you be the first to see it. b^_^

Still uploading... <_< >_>

01-08-2005, 11:13 PM
I wish I could make a movie...but NOOOOO! I have to wait until I'm OLDER!!! Lousy parents and their stupid rule books!

*plays with her hair tail* I'm going to be so embarresssed to watch myself dance...x_x. I mean, practicing it for a year was bad enough, but someone recording it without me knowing it???!!! I feel so....dumb!!

*Dunce cap*

01-08-2005, 11:18 PM
Hee hee, to be quite honest, I know of at least two other people who were filming. It wasn't just me! XD

And aparently, you were concentrating so hard that you didn't hear all those cheers. That's okay, you'll be able to hear it all in the video.

01-08-2005, 11:20 PM
Damn...my mom was right when she said I had selective hearing.... x_x

*quietly sneaks over to her bed and bows twice apologizing and runs out*

Did I seriously WANT to hear the cheers though? x_x

01-08-2005, 11:36 PM
Well, now's your chance to find out! (Be watching your PM Inbox, I'm sending you the link.)

01-08-2005, 11:43 PM
Okay...Should I feel at all weird about this?

01-08-2005, 11:45 PM
No. >_<

01-08-2005, 11:48 PM
need...soda..*drags herself to the fridge*

01-09-2005, 12:19 AM

After all this waiting on my computer it won't let me watch it? What did I do to anger God nooooooow? *cry*

04-10-2005, 07:50 AM
The link doesn't work anymore! :bigcry: I tried to show it to my friend to let her see just what went on at the Oni-con to get her to go.......and it doesn't work!!

04-11-2005, 09:00 AM
