I'll be there for my first Otakon, and hopefully with my older brother. I'll be dressed as another Katamari Damacy cousin, and I'm trying to persuade my older brother to let me make one for him, too. I'm also going to make a much higher quality katamari, because my previous one was falling apart by the end of the day.

I'm also thinking of starting a um... gosh, I forgot her name, but it's a character from Bleach. She's the one with the barets that go WOOSH and the little bug things do stuff. Her costume's simple enough looking; it's a pink shirt with white pants with red stripes... Inoue Orihime! That's it! I've just gotta grow my hair out... gr... I thought I was rid of the burden of long hair once and for all!

Ill be at Otakon! (most likely walking around with Riji like normal! lol) I'll have A Lacus Clyne from Gundam Seed with me (probaly the pink and white casual dress, or her blue and white Seed Destiny dress)), Jill from Resident Evil, Donald Duck (but he is only being worn for the KH shoot!!) and maybe Misa from Death Note but not sure I'm trying to keep the costumes few and simple! lol. We will have to have a VCS gathering at Otakon!!! (since the Katsucon gathering didnt happen, stupid delays!! lol)

I'll be there as Dio from Last Exile. I might also have an Amano Celes (from FFVI)costume, but I haven't started yet, so that's up in the air.

Wow, seems like we have a bit of people from VA going ^_^

What photoshoots are you guys planning on going to (if any?) whether you're going to be in it or taking pictures yourself?

So far I'm going to the Naruto and possibly the Shonen Jump photoshoots. If I happen to run into any others, most likely I'll stop by and take some pictures.

I hope to see a lot of you guys there!!! ^_^

I'm planning on going to Otakon! I love Otakon, it's a lot of fun.

As for costumes... I'm not sure, since I haven't started anything yet. If I go with my planned, I'll have a Bleach character (either Yachiru or Hanatarou) and one of two different Suikoden characters (Luc from 2 or Hervey from 3).

SO any of you people interested in doing a VCS badge for Otakon?? Get those creative juices flowing!! We can do a poll if we have more then one (come on lets have more then one like at Katsucon!!!) If no one submits one well either use ZeKittys from Katsu or Rijis from Animazement (well vote on them) but I would love for us to have a pretty new one!!

Oh boy! I guess I should finish the idea I had a few months ago... But my problem is, I'm a 3-D person and my japanime drawing skillz aren't very nice, but I'll try! I'm still stuck on the cardinal thing...
There are three dogwood trees in my neighborhood: one ivory, one pink, and one a pretty cranberry color. I'm thinking I'm gonna press some of the flowers, but I dunno what I'd do with them... O_o

04-19-2005, 10:29 PM
I plan on heading up there. I should be in normal Torankusu costume. BUT, on Sat. I plan on being in the almighty Saiya-Jin armor! I plan on it looking really nice.

Riji
04-20-2005, 09:40 AM
Going.

Don't want to die from heat exhaustion so no costumes that require lots of makeup. I'm going to end up in vinyl and armor anyway...

Should be a fun, I start university the week before! XD

I may be going to Otakon... And if I do, I'll be bringing my Itachi and Sheena costumes with me ^^

Maybe....I haven't decided. Definitely won't have a costume together by then, I know that much, but I may still show up.

sorachan
04-22-2005, 05:44 AM
Totally going! ^_^ Well, almost absolutely positively going, as soon as I find out about hotels etc.
The list of costumes right now is:
Kurogane (Tsubasa:Reservior Chronicle)
Sanji (One Piece) -- for this I`m doing his standard black suit, and making his `Gentle Cook` shirt from the new opener ^^
Rosette (Chrno Crusade)
Takuto (Full Moon wo Sagashite)
Tatsu (Peacemaker Kurogane)

And I`ll try to get to any photo shoots related to any of those costumes ;p

I`d love to help design a VCR badge, but I won`t be able to submit anything until I get back from Japan ;p.

Has anyone already pre-reg. for Otakon already? Heard it was going to fill up pretty fast and all. I probably wont get a chance to until later on. Hope it doesn't fill up to fast...

They havnt put the info up yet for pre-reg on the website, so unless you pre-regged at Katsu you cant at the moment.

Ironekilz
04-25-2005, 11:55 AM
Yeah, I keep checking online, but no registration info yet. I pre-regged at Katsucon and I read on their site that they should be mailing out confirmations and allowing more pre-reg sometime this month, though that was several weeks ago...

Star_Angel
05-01-2005, 04:30 PM
For those of you who do not know Pre Reg is now open for Otakon, thought I would make a announcement since not everyone would know!

Great! I'll be checking the mail for that confirmation!

Oooh Asuma cosplayer? ^_^ That's a bit more original than the usual Sasuke, Kakashi, Sakura, etc. cosplayers. Go you! ^_^

Then again I'm doing a SnJ (femme) Kakashi... so.. i guess that's like half for originality points ;p

You'll be at the Naruto photoshoot, ne?

TornTsukasa
06-08-2005, 02:22 PM

Lyserg(Shaman King- X Laws Jacket and short white pants >.o)

Okay, two costumes for Otakon now: Dio from Last Exile and Amano Celes from FFVI.

Ok so since I have changed all the cosplays I decided to do for Otakon I'm gonna list my new ones! Im gonna go Friday as Anko from Naruto
Saturday i will be there as Claire Redfield from Resident Evil and Lacus Clyne from Gundam Seed Destiny!
I am only gonna bring 3 costumes! that a record for me since I always bring like 8!!!!

Star_Angel
06-23-2005, 01:02 PM
Ok for those people who are making badges for Otakon. Badges need to be in by 10th so we can vote and have them decided by August 13th. This way it will give people at least a week to print them off and such to take with them to otakon!

Also do we even want to try for a shoot at Otakon? It's big and everyone will be running around like crazy, do we just want to wait till a smaller con like Anime USA and Neko?

Anbu Neko
06-23-2005, 07:54 PM
Waiting *might* be a good idea, but another group is doing Tsubasa Chronicle shots near the fountains, so maybe we could set up a good time to meet there? And hopefully everyone will have a badge XO I'm so shy; I couldn't get up the guts to ask if they were in the VCS at AMA *w*;

I have an urge to post my big brother's e-mail so that all 'yall can pester him constantly to get him to take me to Otakon. He's all like "oh, I might have work or school and I don't want to commit" and I'm all like "OMG do you want your fave sister to get raped or something?!" and when he's in a good mood he's like "yeah, I think we should get a cheap hotel" and I'm like "no, we'll stay with uncle larry" and he's like "i don't wanna barge in on him" and I'm like "dude, he's our freakin' uncle" and mommy laughed histarically at the notion of getting a hotel room.

:walkoff:

What you need to do is follow him around the house whining about how much you want to go to Otakon. My sister did that when she was in high school and wanted to go to the District, but our parents said she couldn't go unless she went with them or me. She kept whining until I said "shut up i'll take you" or my parents said "shut up, she'll take you".

call your uncle and ask him if you can stay, it's cheaper than a hotel and you'll be able to stay for more fun. The worst thing he can say is no.

Think a VCS photoshoot would be fun, but it will be hard to find each other. It'll be fun to try, maybe if we have it on Sunday or Thursday? Depends on everyone's plans, but it's an idea.

Discuss.

bag0k
06-26-2005, 09:58 PM
Yeah, about my rant, it was supposed to have a hyperactive flustered tone to it. I wasn't being totally serious :P. I'm pretty sure he'll take me, or if not, my parents'll force 'im to.

A shoot on Thursday I don't think is a good idea, especially if it were in the afternoon. People could hit traffic or take unexpected detours on the way to Baltimore and miss the shoot. Also, not everybody's arriving on thursday. A Sunday shoot has some potential... but not everyone is around all day Sunday. Friday or Saturday would be the best time-wise, but uber crowded.

My only requirement is that the shoot be alot earlier than the Katsucon shoot (that never really happened, I hear.) I got sick and tired before 11 freakin' o-clock the shoot was scheduled at, so this shoot should be earlier. A LOT earlier. Like, 4 or something.

The tags was a good idea, but we should also have a biiiig one on a pole at the proposed place and time. I guess someone with a close hotel room would have it in his/her room and pull it out when it's time.

Those'r my ideas. August's pretty far away, but it's always good to plan ahead. *shrugs*

(...I think you're supposed to pronounce "those'r" like THOEZ-err. I make up new contractions every day >_<)

I'm planning on going. Still getting everything finalized and stuff but I should be going. I'll be Yachiru from Bleach ::Points to avatar.:: But uhh. What's this meeting I'm reading about? Just Virginia cosplayers meeting together for a photoshoot? That'd be fun. :O Have you guys made the taggy things yet? I'd love to help with that.

Yeah, I think Friday or Saturday would be best. I'm definately incapable of getting there Thursday... >.> And we're leaving early Sunday morning. ^-^;

I'm also attending some photoshoots with my friends on Friday and Saturday as well. The times are subject to change, though, as Otakorp hasn't yet released the con schedule. x.x On Friday I have a shoot at 2, and on Saturday I have one at 1 and another at 2. Ya, a 4 o' clock shoot sounds great right now! x.x

Back in like, January there was a Katamari Damacy photoshoot scheduled at noon on saturday. Nobody's followed up on that since, though, so it's not really set in stone. Maybe we should wait a bit before deciding on exact time.

I just realized that I thought I pre-registered for the Saturday hall costume contest ahead of time, but I didn't read the directions. The registration time is in the beginning of July, and they said not to submit anything before that. Maybe they should make that a little more clear, like by bolding the "do not pre-register" part or not putting the form up on the site in the first pace! Hm. I'm overreacting again. Guess I gotta fill it out again! But I have absolutley no idea what I'm getting myself into. I've never done cosplay contest before... does anyone have any tips for a n00b? (I know it's not a skit, but still...)
Oh, and I just realized that that also eliminates 10-10:30 for me. Hm... scheduling (sp?) is tough!

Yay for rambling!

Uh oh... you did? I haven't gotten my confirmation yet and I also did it online. Maybe it has to do with how I registered on the very last day possible to get it for $45... (Yay for procrastination!)

Edit: Oh yeah! And there's a 99.9% chance my older brother's going with me! So if you see a big tall blonde guy with annoyingly long hair walking with a purple column, that's us. (oh, and he refuses to cosplay with me! It's out of his "comfort zone." hmph!)

I'll be carrying a Cosplay.com sign and (hopefully) wearing a birthday tiara. (August 18th's my sweet 16! XD) Sooo... does anyone want anything at all related to VCS to happen on Thursday? I know my brother won't like it, but oh well. It'll be my freakin' birthday, so that'll be his present: allowing me to drag him around everywhere :P

yeah how well i remember =p one of the first things i did was try to find a restroom XD

not to mention sitting in the van while you talked to jen and some people the night before we got to your grandmother's, i really had to go lol :rolleyes:

as far as otakon goes hopefully i can get my buds out the door and leave by 8 or 9 am. so I reckon with a 5 & 1/2 hour drive (not accounting for unexpected traffic) and a half hour for lunch, we should get to the hotel by 2 pm. I'd love to switch off drivers, but the rest in my travel crew that have licenses don't have insurance...plus i don't really trust others driving my car as I know it's habits and idiosyncrasies all too well.

EDIT: we also might possibly stop in DC to visit my sister for a little while and grab an afternoon snack and stretch. going through large cities like richmond and right through the heart of DC is nerve racking to some, but it's the quickest way, and i love driving anyway, so it doesn't bother me. I've always loved road trips, just the travel by itself.

I'm gonna try to bust out the following: kiriyama(as usual), possibly Kawachi from Yakitate!!Japan, and..something else, I dunno what.

My ride wants to leave at 10am, so we'll be in Baltimore around 11 am. No real plans for what we'll do between getting there and waiting in line.

99% sure I'll be going as Haku pink kimono version (thurs), Aya chan and Naraku (fri), Sai and Motoko (sat), and Koinosuke (sun)

Oh... sorry you can't make it, phaedrus and possibly makotohanabi... hope to see 'yalls at AUSA! (best, con ever.)

I'd hate to suddenly change the subject or something, but the schedule's up on the Otakon website (http://www.otakon.com/con_schedule.asp) so should we plan a meeting? My only requirement is that it be at a reasonable hour... the Katsucon shoot was supposed to be at what, 11?

I have lunch time free on Friday, dinner time, too, lunch time again on Saturday, and from 3:00 to the Masquerade on Saturday... anyone got any time and place ideas? I'm an Otakon newb, so I'll leave it to the veterans. :P

I think Lunch on friday would be good, as long as it doesnt interfere with the cotsume judging on friday (I coudlnt find it on the schedule ((nm friday costume people are suppose to meet at 3:30-4pm)))
would noon on friday be good for everyone? I say we could meet at the fountains and then get pics form there. Im cool as long as I can change at 3-ish for the costume judging.

That sounds SUPER-AWESOME to me, because the Katamari Damacy shoot is at the exact same time and place, so I'll be able to catch both photoshoots. (I'm not participating in the KD shoot, but I wanted to be there.) So I'm 100% for Friday at noon! ^_^

Edit: The Sailor Moon villians shoot is there at the same time too... O_o Er... *thinks*

Looks like I can make it to Otakon this year after all. I can make it friday, good timing since I want to get pics of the KD photoshoot, just curious on how big the Katamaris are going to be. After all, the doors are only so big. Probably bring a friend too. I'll see everyone at 12 noon (probably get there a few minutes early) by the fountains.

Oh! I'll be participating in the Katamari Damacy shoot after all, so don't abandon me! I'll most likley be carrying some sorta sign with me, or have one taped to the back of my costume head, so find me! (I'm really hard to miss, though... O_o)

Edit: Hey... we never realy decided on a badge, did we...? Um... I guess my VCS sign will just be some fancy purple text... >_<

I was like "Star Angel? eh? *five minutes later* Ooooh! Yeah! Duh!" ^_^;; I need to go to more of these VCS gatheries. (Yes, gatheries. shut up. :P)
