View Full Version : The Katsucon Countdown!

Well guys, according to my Pizza Hut calendar (yes, i do have one, they sent it in the mail ^_^) as of today we have exactly FIVE WEEKS until Katsucon! When did time get so SHORT?! >_<

Five weeks to plan get togethers, to raise spending money (ack!), to find directions, to finish costumes (double ack!), and more importantly.. to stress out. ^_^ (and get excited too!)

So how's everyone doing on getting prepared? Hopefully we can keep each others morale up and stop from going nutty.. ^___^;

I actually got a good deal of sewing done on one of my costumes last night (McDohl) so I'm motivated to do a lot more this week. That and I mailed the Katsu security people, and they're allowing me to bring my staff-prop! ^____^ Which I have yet to make.. but that's beside the point.

I'm also very much looking forward to staying in the con hotel - yay convenience!! ^_^

Making a stop in Atlanta for a couple days to see some friends then off to Arlington. Fully expecting to freeze my ass off. Just gotta finsih up getting everything for Reno and I'm good to go ^^v

Yessir! I'm staying with Kellie (cherii chan), who I am VERY grateful to for being able to get us a room there back in November.. we were worried it would be filled up. ^_^v

In a way I want the 5 weeks to blow by and in another way I want more time O_O;;

X.x;; So much to doooooooo~! *runs around trying to get everything done* It seems like Katsucon is very close and still very far away and it confuses me. ^^;; I don't know when to panic!

XD But I can't wait! It's going to be so much fun.

01-10-2003, 04:08 PM
omg i cant wait!! >.<
but at the same time i can, because i only have half my costume done X.x;
weeeeeeee, im gonna have the best time either way! ^__^

Sami
01-10-2003, 04:11 PM
LOL I am the same way..

I can't WAIT because I'm going to get to meet so many cool people and prance around in costume..

But I want to wait because non of my prance-able costumes are finished yet. ._.;;;

kitty_neko
01-10-2003, 04:21 PM
hehe...

i can just imagine someone wearing a half-finished costume and then they'd poke people with pins when they glomped them! =3

i dont kno why i thought of that...but i did XD

Ayaka
01-10-2003, 04:43 PM
5 weeks? *pretends not to panic* Luckily, three of those, I will be on break. So we're talking full-time sewing, baby! :D

Well, costuming worries aside (and I never panic really about that, I just do it), I'm *really* looking forward to this con and meeting bunches of people from the board. I have a post-it on my comp that says "Katsu". Before it was to remind me that it was coming and it would be good, and now it's also to remind me to go sew when I'm on the computer lol.

lol @ kitty neko ^.^

Is it that close already... ugh, and why did I decide to start a new costume from stratch yesterday?

Weee... I guess I know what I'm spending my weekends doing. :)

Hmm, we hear from any of the Ohyaho con goers yet? Or has the chaos just started?

I'm done with one of three. All three from scratch. #2 is about 40% done, and #3 was planned three days ago. I'm on break though, and maybe for the first time ever, progressing on schedule.

Mako-san
01-10-2003, 08:18 PM
OMG, that too soon, I have yet to begin on my costumes! I better get started, but I work every other weekend and I work two jobs, so i'm gonna have to find some time somewhere.

lol Kitty Neko!! I think that has actually happened to me, it was not a pleasant memory -_-

Tenshi
01-10-2003, 10:46 PM
LOL, this is funny. On my calendar at work I wrote countdown numbers on every day from here to February 13 (when I leave). I think it was 33 days XD.

Well, out of my four costumes. . .one is done, one is 80% done, one is 50% done, and the IMPORTANT one is about. . .2% done. ^^;;. I guess I'm going bargain fabric shopping on Sunday for that costume (since I can't miss the Eagles winning tomorrow, o ho ho).

This is going to be awesome! I have a running countdown in my school planner and on the noteboard on our fridge. The countdown continues... MUA HA HA HA HA!

HEHE! You're all worried about your costumes! I haven't started mine and I'm not worried. "Why?" you may ask. Well, my mom is making my costume and she's a professional seamstress! Well, was, but she's still great! She should be able to complete my costume in under a week, no problem. (sorry, I have a thing with arrogance that tends to act up *sweatdrop*)

well, since i'm on break too, i've been working steadily since Monday, from the time i get up (11:30 am) till the time i pass out (12 or 1 am). If i keep up that pace, i'm *praying* it'll be enough time to get my costume done. Wait, positive reinforcement: it WILL be enough time ;) I better get to it!

Sami
01-11-2003, 12:32 PM
One of my costumes is almost done!! WOOHOO!! ^_____^ I made a WalMart run last night at 1 am (we have a 24 hour one) to get some more bias tape.. I'm hoping to have one done by today and start on another this evening!

I'm strangely motivated lately for some reason.. o_O

Katsucon is too close... I just finished a sewing panic for Ohayocon (you know you're in trouble when you're in your room 2 hours before the cosplay run through starts and you're still sewing!)... and now Katsucon?

I don't know if I will make it, since I need to do both Zechs and Noin in about 4 weeks. I might end up bringing Yuber again because I'm too burnt out to sew like a madwoman. Or if I find a way to better harness my Laures wings, I might drag him... although the thought of lugging around a huge box yet again does not inspire me. X__X

Sciguy

How long does it usually take you to travel up here in one straight shot? ^__^

Off topic, when is everyone arriving in Crystal City? I'm hoping to get there sometime Friday morning.. -hoping- being the key word, I've never driven down there and I'm a little directionally challenged.. ^^;;;

Well one night I left at 5PM and went straight to Richmond, VA. Got there at around 3AM so 10 hours straight. Gonna be visiting a friend in Atlanta, which is out of the way, so it will split into 2 6-8 hr stretches Im gathering.

I will be getting there thursday afternoon, staying at the crystal city hyatt.

01-13-2003, 08:19 PM
I should be there before 1400 that Friday. With any luck, I'll convince my mom to take me up there earlier and get there sometime before 1200. I'll just gently apply pressure to her and I'll succeed. To quote the great D'ni: "With pressure and time, even the greatest rocks will move."

Two costumes down... three to go... *_* Though two of them shouldn't take too long!
You lucky people who live within driving distance. I have a long plane flight ahead of me >< I'll have to remember to bring my DVD player and FOTR to watch on the plane... at least I have no connections!!

You know what the worst part of flying to a con is? Waiting on your luggage. Besides the fear that something might have happened to it, just standing there... waiting on it... when you have a convention to go to... gosh it's torture!!

ThatYaoiBoy
01-14-2003, 09:30 AM
Well ^__^; I live near Arlington which is right near DC which is right next to where I live lol so it's probably less than an hour drive for me :3 I'll be getting there on Friday (Skipping school for a convention lol typical me) I guess. I need to hitch a ride with a friend of mine or something. Wooo I wonder what our hotel number is x.x; I must ask roomies!

LOL, I hate waiting for my luggage too! I've never flown to a con before, but I always get a little twitchy watching the bags come out... slowly.. on that round conveyor thing and hoping some jerk didn't pick mine up by mistake.. >____<

What time would you be getting in town on thursday?

Sami
01-14-2003, 04:06 PM
> What time would you be getting in town on thursday?

I honestly don't know, it all depends if I'm working then.. hopefully I should know by next week how long my assignment will be. @__@

( Either way, I'm taking Friday and if they don't like it, they can screw off! ^____^;;; )

Rosiel
01-14-2003, 04:06 PM
> You know what the worst part of flying to a con is?

Yes. Having your masquerade costume fill your WHOLE suitcase and being forced to commute to the con wearing your hall costume. add to that people staring in the airport... and, well, it makes for quite an interesting experience.

Luckily Yuber wasn't /too/ over-the-top... I think the hat got the most stares, actually.

Cool, if push comes to shove and you need a place to crash for thursday night, you can crash at my room. But I won't be there until later thursday.

WEE! :D If I do leave on Thursday, it won't be until later either.. either that or early Friday morning, it all depends on how early I feel like getting up and battling traffic..

.. Unless.. anyone know if there's a Metro stop near the hotel? ^____^;;; *plotting*

The closest rail station is Crystal City (Yellow/Blue line), but it's a far walk south from 18th street and Clark. The hotel runs a shuttle service to Crystal City Metro center; please call the hotel for more information. Also there is yellow cab service at 703-534-1111.

This is my plan. If you don't want to go alone on Friday morning, Katan and I can meet up with you on the way.

Ooo, that would be cool! Although I'm not sure how much crap I'm going to have to lug with me.. *needs one of those suitcases on wheels like the little old ladies have, LOL* I'll keep you posted as time passes and I get to know my schedule a bit better. ^^

2) Make my Tidus sword
3) Finish my Rufus costume
4) Work and get $200
5) Get a new car...
6) Get a new cellphone & more minutes
7) Re-do SeeD uniform (optional)
...I think I can do it. I may drop #2 (because of the weapons policy)
Then when the con rolls around... I'm leaving at 5AM to pick up Lady Ava and krystal1314 around 7AM, then heading south... I guess we should get there around 11:30?

Less than a month to go, but I'm already busy planning for Katsu, in terms of costumes, shtuff to do at the con, and photo printing.. :thumbsup:

I decided to postpone my Trowa Heavy Arms' missile-packs until Fanime (June!!) due to fear of damaging the 8 boxes while transporting them to the con.. :( So I will wait until the first con that I DRIVE to, hence Fanime, but until then I'll have my new Endless Waltz Trowa that Erika made for me :) I might also have Ralf from KOF, else I'll wear Ohgami again to pose with some friends who are doing Sakura Taisen. We'll see.. ;)

Can't wait, and the countdown continues...

I spontaneously started to ghetto a new costume for Katsu... and it's all Diechan's fault for inspiring me! >__>

But since I am not being too careful and avoiding hand-sewing the whole thing, I estimate only a few hours to go before I am done.

The down side is... I'll need to shoulder my wings again. But it'll all be worth it once I track down Diechan and her Adam Kadamon costume! I just hope people won't step on my costume too much... X_X

Generally my problems came more from people in my group than strangers though... Lucifer and I kept on walking on each other's costumes last Katsu. It was quite annoying. *laughs*

But since this time it'll be even longer, I might have to do it your way and ask Katan to grab the end of it or something. ^__^

I was so worried about my Lina cape whenever I wore that costume that I told my dad to walk behind me and make sure no one stepped on it.... and guess what he did as soon as we left the room? Yep, ripped it right off.

Last year at Katsucon it was a nightmare! People kept steping on LadySomairot's Lulu costume train and it wasn't even that long! Just a little circle in the back really. I had to hold it up for her. But then again at Otakon when the two of us both had massive trains for our Bloodlust characters people were really respectful about it and I only got stepped on once. You just have to be careful and make sure your costume doesn't get damaged!

:mad: I just got fired from my job, so I'm not going to have any money, I wish they had fired me last month that way I could have found a new job and gotten some money in the bank for Katsucon. oh well, at least I have the room handled. ;)

I have to note I finished a random costume with no planned con, started one with a deadline in July or so and did not even touch the one I needed to have done for Katsu.

Whoups. ^___^

Having finished Diamond for no con in the foreseeable future I am now blissfully working on my Anime Expo costume... and I didn't even make the one for Katsucon.

Can someone please knock some sense into me? >_<

Ayaka
02-04-2003, 11:31 PM
I'll do it, Rosiel, as soon as I can tell my stupid brain not to try to make a simple costume because I dropped a more complex one. It keeps saying, "you have time! Just think of something!"

But, then I shall be happy to help.

i am both happy and stressed about the con right now.
on one hand it's closer to the con, the fun, and the memories.
one the other hand i am the planner of the con trip for me and my friends ( which s equals a neverending supply of stress), i Have to finish both my hellsing and my love hina costume, I havent even started on the Seta Van, i havent gotten all the cash together for the room, people are dropping out of the trip for different reasons, and my costume parts i need haven;t come in the mail yet.

But all in all, i say this has been one of my beter con experiences. For once i get to plan somthing that helps others get to a con , I am doing somthing my friends said could not be done in such a short period of time (less that 2 months of planning), And my friends think i have planned this con out very professionally. I know that even if peop;e drop out i will still go to the con, even if a have to gopher the whole time it will be worth it.

Maybe I should try and get a bit of work done on my Katsucon costume? Naaaah... that's what Thursday night is for. ^__^

Somehow it still didn't hit me that Katsu is coming soon and probably only will once I get Katan at the airport... now if only I could finalize the list of costumes I am bringing. X__X

my weekend is going to be tight!! @_@ Coming up with someone to cosplay with only 8 days to make the costume is INSANE.. but so far so good for me. (Im trying to cosplay as Tsukasa from .hack//sign) I think i might just keep my hair brown u.u;; *I WOULD dye it.. but i go to ecpi and they dont like multicolored unnatural hair colors.* XDD

But so far i have the staff pretty much done and painted *Crappy.. but it works lol*, and Ive got to sew sew and sew some more on the shirt! >.< pooo gas

Other than that.. just gotta find me a hat and Im set XD whee
*Im daaaaaaancin like a monkey*

EDIT: I forgot to mention that Ill be meeting my good online bud Sharon (Who's husband is responsible for plushiecon at some of the conventions) We'll be meeting Steve Bennet from IC Entertainment along with Big Danny T XDD on Saturday yayhuuu! (Sharon wrote a comic for me to draw and they want to look at it cuz it involves kitty girls XDD)

I just went nuts and made a replica of the shirt Schu wears under his vest which means that if I get too hot I can take off the vest and still be accurate!

And thank God for the model sheets in Assassin and a White Shaman!

I'm so cheesed off - I won't be wearing Nanami because I totally don't know what I'm doing and just wasted a few yards of fabric... x_x And I haven't even BEGUN the shirt... *sigh*

So, it's back to the drawing board. I still have McDohl finished (thank goodness I got that done earlier), and Kidd is going to have to be a stand-in for some day.. probably Saturday.. I might try something quick (and EASY), I have a few thoughts in mind.

But I am sad.. ;______________________;

(Well I am done with Prince Diamond but he's not for Katsucon...)

Which means, tonight's mission is to ghetto a Rosiel outfit for Saturday afternoon, then look at the wings, sigh at the repairs needed, and not do them. ^__^

I'm tempted to just run around in Schuldig all weekend.

Woohoo, I'm done with my Nanbara costume! First time I've ever sewed anything from scratch.

I appologize in advance about how crappy it looks, but if you see a guy in a purple suit, that'll be me...

Of course... now to figure out to get the wig to look right.... Ok maybe I'm not done. :/
