Just thought I'd start a new thread for the 2005 convention. This will be my very first out-of-state convention! Awesome! Of course... it could also be very scary for me... :eek: Anyone else gonna be there to ease my worries? ^_^;

Tenshi

What an early thread! We're still in the planning stages, but hopefully we'll have some more info and a new webpage in the near future! Expect a much bigger and better costume contest this year ^^.

Hee hee, I like to start my hype early enough. On top of that, I'm simply thrilled to be able to go out of state for once! Hooray!

It'll be my first out of state, too.
I plan on going, but not definate yet.

Actually, now that I think about it, the 3rd is a Saturday and the 5th is a Monday. Are... these dates right? O_o

They're right -- Anime Vegas is held on Labor Day Weekend ^_^.

I'm going! This is my 1st out of state con as well.

I'm hoping to premiere my Junpei from Digimon once I figure out how to make the blasted shoes.

I might remake my Whitemage for this con and I should have Adol from Y's done by then.

This con looks like fun.

FRom,
Joe

I hope to meet some of you guys there.... gosh this thread is really early ~^_^~. My first out of state con will be AX in California. lol I'm absolutely going to attend Anime Vegas (If I'm still alive, that is). I'm a locale, so it shouldn't be too difficult for me to get to Cashman Center.

Will this con be a bit bigger than last year? I haven't seen the attendance on the first day. I actually went on the last day of the con T^T, so I pretty much missed most of it. I'll opt to go on the first day this time around.

Tenshi
01-10-2005, 08:52 PM
anime firelight, you missed Saturday, which was CRAZY. I think we were between 600 and 700 people on just that day! I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but since we were in only two rooms, believe me, it was X_x.

But to answer your question -- yes, it will be bigger, it will be better, and there will be MORE SPACE! Hopefully we'll have more info soon!

01-10-2005, 09:01 PM
anime_firelight >> will u be wearing rinoa? haha, i have a rinoa (which will hopefully be fixed by av)... maybe we can do an ff8 gathering? Possibly I'd have an Ellone done, too.

I went to this last year and its suposed to be a whole lot bigger this year. I am way excited I live in St.george utah so its only and hour and a half away. So you guys there. ;)

Tenshi
01-12-2005, 02:24 PM
Natchan, were you one of the people that came on the bus? We were so shocked that an entire BUS of people from St George came all the way to our convention! *_*

Natchan
01-12-2005, 07:49 PM
Yes, I was on that bus, along with my friend missrelena. I was dressed up as Relean Peacecraft in her really pretty coat, and my friend (missrelena) went as Miss Kaouru in her kimono. You didn't perchance see us... did you? Oh and who were you dressed up as?! It so cool talking to people that have gone to the same events I have. ;)

Tenshi
01-12-2005, 09:31 PM
You guys were there on Monday, right? I was Edward that day (the person with the blonde wig and blue lipstick and the cape). I think my bf took a picture of you, but it didn't turn out well (none of my pictures did because my old camera was a piece of doodoo and I didn't know how to work my film camera properly ^^;; ).

02-04-2005, 04:04 PM
Yay! Anime Vegas, I can't wait! I went last year for all three days and it was a total blast. It was absolutly amazing for a first year convention! <3 And if it's going to be bigger and better. Gah I can't even imagine. ^^ I'll be attending, so I'll see you all there!

How are the photo opps at AV? Are there good places for pics, or is it just plain?

Tenshi
02-04-2005, 06:41 PM
The stairs near the entrance last year were a nice spot. Lots of potted plants and other goodness. The outside is not so good -- there's a parking lot and little else. But you've given me an idea -- I think I'll talk to the con chair and see if we can set up a room with a good backdrop and lights and all that stuff. I know how frustrating it can be to have no good photo spots.

Not so many good spots for pictures, maybe a backdrop in the Staff room would do for pictures or in the exhibit hall somewhere. Let me know what is needed. So much to do and so few days left to do it.

Awesome, mixing! I still have this convention marked as a "probably going if I CAN!" thing, because I will if I'm in Vegas, won't if I'm not (maybe they should make a telecommuter option hahaha)..

That'll be cool though :) I have to say though, the dealers should cut you a little commission for attracting people in (lol) -- maybe? :D

Hi all,

I know we are dying to get more information out for the convention, but I we will have to wait, again for a week or so until I hear back from the con-center. I hope you can be patient, and thanks for understanding.

We are going to have to change the title of this forum. The date of the show has been changed. October 28-30. I want to talk about more but with the long wait I am enduring for the contract, I cannot tell you any more. But we do have more guests confirmed and I will have them on the site once they send bios and pictures!

erm ::twiddles fingers:: You guys might wanna count me out of that gathering :thumbsup: . I kinda.. er... ruined my Rinoa cosplay due to a tragic dyeing accident. I'll see what I may be able to bring for the con days.

So, any cosplay plans underway that we'll see at AV? o^o^o Who do you plan to go as?

We must rename this forum (date is incorrect). The word is out and I thought I would post something to make sure you know about the changes. Yes we have confirmation, the dates are October 28 through 30 at the Cashman Center. Friday is a holiday in Nevada (Nevada Day), so it only makes sense to start it then.

The show is at the Cashman Center, held in the Exhibit Hall A (dealers and artist), Meeting rooms (we have 6 rooms again this year with 2 more reserved for back up space), and the Theater (on Saturday), for the movies, premiers, Cartoon Mogul's Big Cartoon Show and the Cosplay Saturday Night.

Guests have been calling and some are already confirmed. Check the site for all the details. Any other questions, email or post it here (but I answer emails much quicker).

Lots of fun this year, more space for a nicer show, and a not so heavy on the wallet admission price.

I have no clue what i'm gonna cosplay..probably my old EGL or just make a new from scratch or upgrade it..so many choices~

Buffalo New York! I am impressed you would travel so far to come to our tiny convention! I am sure there will be Naruto Cosplayers at the convention. We do have an area in the dealers room for picture taking, and I am sure the Cosplay Directors have more events they are planning.

By the way, I hear at least one of the English Voice Actors attending our show was cast in Naruto. I will leave it up to you to guess who.

This thread is making me sad. I was living in Vegas up until about a month and a half ago. I was there for a good part of this year. I was actually planning on going to this con. It would have been my first con in the west. But I didn't have enough money to get my own apartment and bad things happened. I think its enough to say that I'm back on the east coast...

We are currently planning on having a few unannouced tournaments plus other events such as 2 nights of alternative gaming hours fropm 7pm- midnight. These I'm the most proud of because it's sooo nerdy, it's obscene!

Tabletop gaming, miniature based games, Go, Shogi, indie boardgames, plus the nice folks from Games Workshop are scheduled to attend and do demos, also we got NIS America as a sponsor so we'll be running a few PS2's with their SRPGs as well.
(Bring your memory cards!)

In addition to all that, there will be a section of the gaming room just for wireless gaming, so bring your handhelds and face off against friends and make new ones with your Sony PSP and Nintendo DS. The featured Wireless game of Animevegas this year is :heart: NINTENDOGS :heart: , and we will be raffling off various imported Nintendogs merchandise for doggie lovers. :bigtu:

All in all, the gaming room will be very awesome, but dont forget about our ever growing guestlist, as well as the "open until midnight" screening room, 2 event/panel rooms, our AMV contest, indie cartoon exhibition, artist's alley, masquerade, Dj Jinnai spinning his remixes, and other events that haven't even been announced yet!

Right now preorders for the con are $25, and it'll be $30 at the door for a 3 day pass. Considering this is our second year, we are really shooting high for this one, and we've already surpassed much bigger cons in terms of things to do and guestlist... all that's missing is you!

For more details please check out www.animevegas.com

I sort of have a question for preregistration. ^_^ I know it's a lot more convenient to preregister~ but what if you're not going all three days? I'm guessing I'll only be able to make it to 2 of the 3 days max (Fri+Sat), along with all my other friends.Do you guys recommend that we prereg. for all 3 anyways? thank you in advance :D

(p.s. someone mentioned cosplay group gatherings. I finally remade the rinoa costume so I'd still be up for an ff8 group)

You really should pre-reg! Pre-regs get a different badge than Registration people do. Plus you get a different con bag as well. And it will allow you to come on Thursday night to pick up your goodies early, so you can plan your schedule out ahead of time.

Yes there is a list on line at www.animevegas.com/prereglist.html and confirmation mailers will be sent out on October 1, for all the pre-registrants. We will also have a list of attendees at the convention too, in case you forget your confirmation (please bring ID).

I'll probably post more later, when I figure these forums out. @_@(feels stupid)

Heyas, just introducing myself here in this thread for the first time since Anime Vegas'll be my first con ever - and I plan to attempt to cosplay as someone as well....just got a little less than a month to learn how to make my own costume, heh. But yeah! Totally excited to be going to this one in my home city. :D

Btw, any other cosplayers in Vegas send me over an e-mail! I want to get myself around more cosplayers but I really don't know how/where to start, and I'm looking for mentors, lol. But I know I need to put something together before this con arrives! >_< I'll probably be roaming the newbies section for quite some time, lol. Anyways, already pre-registered and set to attend, so hopefully will see you all there! I'll be the confused looking one in awe of it all...and in a sad little costume, lol.

Ooooh!! You preregistered already? My group of friends haven't yet. >.> I think we're all too lazy to prereg xD since we might not go all 3 days. ^_^ It's nice to meet new cosplayers and people!!! I wish you luck on your first cosplay :D

LV_Orphen
09-22-2005, 06:08 PM
Hahah, well make sure you preregister anyways. ^_- Won't it be the same cost? Or will it be cheaper to just buy a day pass? O_O I dunno how it works, but I figured $25 was pretty cheap to begin with. I definitely won't be going all three days, probably only Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday....whatever work will give me off. But also if you prereg you get that special goodie bag. :P Lol. But yeah, totally, say hi if you see me there! I'll be the one dressed as Demitri(Darkstalkers), or Hiro(Lunar 2) if I'm giving up on Demitri's costume because I'm horribly sucky at sewing as of yet. :P Lol. And thanks! Good luck to you as well, although I'm sorta guessing you're no newbie at it....so actually, expecting to see something good. ^_- Lol.

I haven't posted in here in a while!

Anyways, in case you don't know, I'm ye olde Masquerade coordinator (or, at least one of them). I'm really looking forward to the show this year, and all cosplayers entering the Masquerade should be as well!

Did you know that we have the theatre at Cashman Center for the cosplay contest? Well, now you know! I got a chance to look at it, and it is BEAUTIFUL inside. No one will have trouble seeing over heads, since it's all stadium-style seating inside! The stage is HUGE, too -- no fear of falling off of too-small stages! The Masquerade will be a huge treat for both cosplayers and audience members ^^.

So if you're planning on signing up for the Masquerade, please go to the website (animevegas.com) and fill out the form. Registration for the contest ends on October 15th, and only a limited amount of spaces will be available at the convention!

I have many more things I want to bring up, but I think I'll save that for tomorrow. I'm a little sleepy ^^.

Tenshi
09-28-2005, 10:11 AM
Ah, may as well cut and paste this from my at-con flyer :). Here I talk about a mini Hall Costume Contest (inspired by Anizona), the Cosplay Info Desk, the Photography Station, and the Changing Station!

HALL COSPLAY

Get your Halloween candy early this year! Members of Anime Vegas' Cosplay Staff will be roaming the halls looking for great costumes. Goodie bags will be distributed to outstanding cosplayers. Good luck, and Trick or Treat!

COSPLAY DESK

Members of Cosplay Staff can be found at the Cosplay Desk. Located in the Dealers' Hall, we will be there to assist your needs! If you have any questions or complaints about the Masquerade, Hall Cosplay, peace bonding, or anything else, please don't hesitate to visit us! In fact, we encourage ALL cosplayers with props to visit the desk so we can check it out.

PHOTOGRAPHY STATION

Let's face it, parking lots and hallways are not the best places to take pictures. That's why Anime Vegas brings you the Photography Station! A backdrop and controlled lighting will be set up in the Dealers' Room -- you bring the cameras. Access to the Station is on a first-come, first-served basis; however, if we start developing a line we will have to impose time limits. Please let the staffers at the Cosplay Desk know if you have a big gathering scheduled for a certain time -- we will do our best to clear it out for you.

CHANGING STATION

Due to the lack of nearby hotel establishments, Anime Vegas has set aside a room just for cosplayers! In room 203, you will be allowed to change in and out of your costume right at the convention center! This room will be staffed at all times to ensure that each gender stays seperate (no need to worry about your modesty, ladies and gents!).

LV_Orphen
09-28-2005, 12:43 PM
Oh wow, so Halloween was implemented into the convention? That's actually pretty nifty, heheh. And I really like the photography station idea, that sounds like a great idea, really haven't heard of many conventions having those (but being that I've never been to one, they could probably all have them and I'd never have known). But those are just more reasons why this convention will be a blast....here's to hoping Anime Vegas stays around for years and grows up to be something bigger than AE. ; ) Vegas has needed this for a LONG time, and last year hopefully started a growing trend.

10-02-2005, 04:05 PM
Heh, well at least you have one for each day. ; ) I've only got one. :\ Going to save it for Saturday....I guess I'll be forced to go sans-costume the other two days. ;_; But yeah! Definitely excited! And have you read about the karaoke contest? It sounds *awesome*. Definitely plan on signing up whenever I can.

Besides, I know you guys need some jet Grind Radio(:bigtu: ) and I need to meet the famous (and oh so pretty:rolleyes: ) Kristine! Anyone know if this is the kind of place that will bust me for skating around?? Also... whos everyone goin as!?!?!?!

Lol, too shy for karaoke? ; ) Naaah, it's not that bad. I'm willing to embarrass myself. I'm a good singer, but the whole random anime songs thing'll kick my butt. But seeing Demitri on stage singing Japanese karaoke should be a fun sight to see. :P

Which answers the other question, I'll be Demitri from Darkstalkers for the con, but only on Saturday. It's my only costume, and I don't think it's right to wear it for two days straight, heh. Not when everyone else'll be in different ones. :P

:p Hello everybody!!! I'm so exited, this is going to be my first con and I'm a little nervous, but I feel alot better now that I know I'm not the only one.

Hey, all the newbies should have a get together! woot!:rockon:

Any other hellsing cosplayers going? I'm going to be Integra. Well, there will probably be an Alucard, there's always an Alucard.

I hope to see all of you there!

bah~ kristine is not that great, alex. xD Good luck getting here if you're going. ^^

Lol, you can use your costume twice? Lol, do people do that? I wasn't sure if that was technically very good to do. :P Don't want to seem icky, heh. And of course, I'm all about smelling good.....none of those nasty smells will go near me. :P

I would just take them off and put them in my room to go indoors if thats any consolation (I was really good about it at animagic!)wait well, how much of the con is indoors vs. outdoors???? Thanks again for the help! Oh yeah, and do you think there is any time left to get a room at the hotel or any surrounding ones?

anime_firelight
10-09-2005, 05:15 PM
"the hotel"? :D Well it's a convention center (i hope i'm right xD). Finding a hotel within a 15 min. radius wouldn't be too difficult, considering Vegas thrives on tourism. o_O I wish you luck in finding a good place to stay. I'm sure there'll be available rooms in the surrounding area. ^_^ If it was anything like last year, it's pretty much an indoor con.

and yes the clip for the commercial is also on the animevegas website.

This trip would combine some of my favorite things anime, cosplaying, gambling and maybe gambling in cosplay. Problem is I donít know which one would win out in Vegas Iím so confused. Gambling, anime, gambling, anime.

Note: If at all possible Iíd like to see photos (canít remember if thatís aloud on casino floors probably not) then if not photos stories of someone in a cosplay out fit sitting at a blackjack table.

Wow AV is 11 days from today! O_O I'm BEHIND with a costume of mine! OHNOES! xD

Did you get it done? If not hurry and finish. Don't forget to come introduce yourself and say hi to me at the convention. I am easy to find, I look like Master Roshi!

This will probably be my last update everyone!

Online Masquerade signups are now CLOSED. If you want to sign up for the Masquerade, make sure you do it on Friday! We are finalizing our playlist and entry list Friday evening, so we WILL NOT be able to accept new entries on Saturday. So if you want to sign up (and everyone should sign up; we have LOTS of open spots!) bring a CD with the MP3 of your music/skit dialogue and visit the Cosplay Desk inside the Exhibit Hall.

Oh, and the weather forecast looks good for this weekend :). I posted a link to it on the Anime Vegas LJ community: http://www.livejournal.com/community/animevegas .

Before I pass out for 8-10 hours of much-needed post-con sleep, I wanted to post here and thank everyone :). I think the Masquerade went really well, and that's mostly due to the hard work of everyone who entered! The photo area seemed pretty popular as well, so we'll definitely bring that back next year.

So thanks again! I'll try not to be so stressed all the time next year, but I can't make any promises ^_-.

(anime firelight, you really should have stayed for the end of the Masquerade!)

Anime vegas rock and the Masqurade was well done. I wish I had entered my tsubasa but its not really done. I will post my cosplay photos soon. I went as Edward Elric Saturday but went casual the other days.

The Masquerade was really fun, the best part was when that sword exploded, it didn't seem like it was planned, but it was neat nonetheless. Sorry you ended up having to clean up after it though Tenshi... ^_^;;

I hope next year my partner doesn't have to work on Saturday so we can do our Animal Crossing skit!

I thought that the con in general was amazing this year! I came last year and that was fun but this last weekend was the most fun that I have had in a very long time! Especially the Masquerade, I was in the Basket of Otaku Group and let me tell you that we had a blast performing for the attendees and Staff of Anime Vegas! :square: I have nothing negative to say about it all! I had SUPER FUN and I can't wait until next year! By the way your Sailor Uranus was really pretty! :) Natchan

woooooopse! Did I miss something?! xD Ah I HAD to leave. Some of my friends were losing patience. e_e btw you looked great as Sailor Uranus! Thank you for letting me do that "skit" on such short notice, too. I practically died from tiredness when I got home. ^^

I was also a member of the Fruits Basket group (and Chibi Momiji's mommy) and the Masquerade was so well done! Tenshi, despite technician troubles, I thought you were a great director. (You looked so super-kawaii as Sailor Uranus, too!) I can't think of anything that should have been done any differently. I had such a wonderful time, and so did my daughter. Considering that she's two, that's saying something. Thanks for being so understanding and wonderful to work with! Everyone was such fun to be around, staff members and contestants alike!

Smiles!
