Hey all, i'm a big Narutard, and plan to cosplay young Itachi in PMX.

i'm just wondering if there are any other Naruto cosplayers planning to go to PM Expo. if so, we can discuss a possible group meeting and costume tips here!

if you are a Naruto fan at heart and plan to cosplay someone, anyone from Naruto, this is the thread to be on!

Apparently we are planning to go watch the Random Ninjas after we meet up. The time for the meet-up is subject to change, but currently it is...Sunday, at 11 AM, near the Lagoon(?).

Those who do not want to watch the Random Ninjas may go do something else until the concert is over or wait near and take pictures.

Yay! Someone started the thread! I was considering it, but never got around to it.

I'm planning on wearing my Sakura costume (long hair, sleevless dress) and my other friends will probably be there in their Sasuke and Hinata costumes as well.

However I think we're only going for the big day (will that be Sunday???) because school starts that week and we're poor college students. ^^;;

Hey all, i'm a big Narutard, and plan to cosplay as Haruno Sakura, 2nd season costume from Naruto; the Second Season. so far, this costume has only appeared in the manga, but will soon be showed in the anime. but i do know that there are many planned 2nd season cosplayers right now.

Yeah I think this is their second year in a row being cancelled

Something about not having enough Pre-Regs

That's why you need a decent pool of funds before you start a 'con. You can't bank on pre-reg to cover your expenses.

Hopefully I can go! I'll be Hinata (cosplaying with Ami Yuy! *points above*) and we'll most likely drag our friend back as Sasuke! Granted, my costume needs some fix ups and re-dos. ^^;

It would be fun running into more Naruto cosplayers! I'll look forward to it.

Devi Dark Wolf
07-22-2005, 05:47 PM
w0000t, I will totally be there as Itachi! With hopefully brand-new Sharingan contacts! :P And I will try my best to bring my Naruto-cosplay buddies too.

Yeah, considering the con only goes from Sat-Mon. No worries, I've been making that mistake for awhile now too. XD

Since the big day is likely to be Sun, may I suggest that day?

It's very likely the my friends and I will only be coming for the biggest day, and we'd definately want to meet up with you all!

Crystalike
07-27-2005, 12:43 PM
OOPS! O_O eheheheheheh...-__-; sorry bout that...hehehe...

yes, Sunday would be a good day! ^_^ howz bout 11 AM? nice and early, and maybe we can all have lunch together? depending on how many Naruto cosplayers there actually are...

Amy, can i ask where you got your Sakura wig? it looks like a high quality wig, and i need one for my new Sakura.

Evil Bishounen
07-27-2005, 12:45 PM
I'll be at PMX as Orochimaru. *points to avatar* Gonna be doing more additions and fixes over the next month or so...

I'll definitely be walking around the con, with 2-4 buddies also cosplaying Naruto characters. However, if a gathering happens, I may or may not show up. On the first two days of the con I'll have masquerade-related stuff to be at, so time conflicts are very likely. So, we'll pretty much just see how it goes when the con comes.

Crystalike
07-27-2005, 01:18 PM
well, cool, we have an Orochi! =D yay, evil snake guy!

now, any random genins?

That time sounds fine to me...I'll have to double check with everyone, but it should be good.

Oracle actually bought it (she bought 99% of the supplies for my Sakura) and she said she got it from the store here on Cosplay.com. I'm pretty sure the color is "Pink" (since it's the only one close) and probably Ashley (http://store.cosplay.com/product.php?productid=16290&cat=304&page=1), because that's the only one I can find that's the right length/style and comes in pink.

It's a gorgeous wig, and yes, very high quality, I'm very very very happy with it, and got TONS of compliments throughout AX.

Which Sakura are you doing? Short or long hair? I'm trying to find a short wig myself (so that I can switch between the two if I don't feel like messing with a long wig) and have glanced through the ones on here, but haven't looked really hard yet...

Crystalike
07-27-2005, 07:19 PM
short hair Sakura! i'm planning on making the second season outfit; i think it's cute and i'm probably going to get nice green contacts too! ^_^ and i'll get to beat ppl up with my ******* powaa!

*Edited for those who dont keep up with the latest chapters of the Naruto manga and miss out.

hmm...yeah, it's hard to find good wigs, Katie Bair would be my choice but they're expensive....T__T

a good Naruto cosplay resource site is Konoha Imports, but something's been wrong with the site for a few weeks...that's where i got my headband, kunais, pouchs, and tatoos.

Its kind of funny. My little sister was having regrets for not cosplaying as Rin at AX05.
I think this would be a great second chance for us. That being said let me get to the point.
There's a time and a day but where excatly is everyone supposed to meet at?

Watch out Neji's and Sasuke's, here I come <3

1. Young Itachi

3. Anko
4. Namine from KH

Asuma's Fire; one normal Asuma, please, with a side dish of Kurenai too! ^_^

I'm thinking

1) new Sakura
2)Anko
3)Heaven Seal 2 Sasuke (heh, like that'll happen >.>)
4)Kurenai or Serapip

Crystalike
08-03-2005, 01:19 PM
who is Serapip? new Naruto character??

Chizome
08-03-2005, 01:25 PM
lol, no she's from Hellsing. I'd tell you about her, but it's a major spoiler ^^;;

Evil Bishounen
08-03-2005, 05:21 PM
I'd suggest to everyone to not bother mentioning any costumes that aren't Naruto related. This IS a Naruto thread, after all. And please keep up the no-spoiler courtesy in the process...


As for myself, I'll likely be changing some of my cosplay plans around a little, though I'll still be Orochimaru for 1 1/2 to 2 days. The only day I know I'm wearing the costume for certain now is Sunday, and 95% chance says I won't be making any gatherings that day.

Crystalike
08-03-2005, 05:56 PM
to Evil Bishounen; how much white makeup powder do you have to use every time you cosplay Orochimaru? does it smear on your wig too? O_O ^_^

Chizome
08-03-2005, 05:58 PM
so pale @_@ I need to learn how to pull it off like you do.

Evil Bishounen
08-03-2005, 06:13 PM
to Evil Bishounen; how much white makeup powder do you have to use every time you cosplay Orochimaru? does it smear on your wig too? O_O ^_^

Actually, very little of it comes off, surprisingly. It didn't really smear, and I forgot I was even wearing the makeup once it was done. The only place I really got makeup on was the inside of my turtleneck collar, but my neck didn't really lose much paleness. (The white stains on the inside of my collar weren't too much of an eyesore, but I'll be remedying the problem when I swap the blue shirt out for a white one next time.)

As for how much make-up I used, I can't really give you an accurate guess. I've only gotten into the full make-up once, and I wasted A LOT of it before my friend and I finally figured out how to get it right.

Chizome
08-03-2005, 06:16 PM

Okay, well I'm going to post in the Gathering thread (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=57745&page=1&pp=15) the time and day (Sun @ 11 AM), just to make sure we don't get overlapped with something else...

Um, what about place? When I was last there in 2002 (LBC) for AX and it was my first con so I was a bit overwhelmed and don't have a great memory of it. The pictures Super No 1 put up (http://super-no1.com/longbeachcc/) could be useful, I just haven't spent much time looking myself, yet...

DaBossKnight
08-04-2005, 06:21 PM
OMG you and I soooo think alike. I was going to do the same thing.
However, I think we should simply meet at the front of the covention building.
It saves time and alot of confusion for us who have never been there.
Anyone have any dissagreements about it ... or better suggestions?

Chizome
08-04-2005, 06:27 PM
Nope, I'm all for it. <3

Crystalike
08-05-2005, 01:17 PM
Nope! since this will be my first AX, meeting in the front would be best, so we can show everyone just how popular Naruto is! =D

Evil Bishounen; but it still is a pain to do the makeup every time, right? ^_^;

Chizome; how'z your paper Sakura doing? XP

Er....This is PMX, not AX. AX happened a month ago. >.>

Evil Bishounen; but it still is a pain to do the makeup every time, right? ^_^;
I can't really make that kind of judgment call. I've already said that I've only done the full makeup once, and you can hardly pull a general "every time" statement out of a single occurance.

Insofar that I need a second person to get the makeup on me because I can't fully see what I'm doing when working on myself, yes, you could consider that a pain...

Chizome
08-05-2005, 03:16 PM

Chizome; hmm, it'd be hard to SNORT and spew Soda....XD so, what colors are you going to use for Anko? like i already told ya, mine's black and red, with the tan coat, are you going to do the normal tan coat and brown and white scheme? =P

Chizome
08-06-2005, 12:09 PM
I'm thinking either the normal one or all black, or maybe ANBU Anko. X3

I've trolled the LBCC several times since 2002 for varying reasons.

There's four places I can think of to have this besides the Hyatt Lobby (those guys are unusually nice to cosplayers):

1. LBCC lobby. It's nice and very well spaced out.
2. LBCC patio. Very spacious if the lines are minimized.
3. Stairs between the LBCC & Hyatt. Gray and concrete, gets direct sun in the late morning to early afternoon.
4. Rainbow Lagoon. If there's no rainfall, it shouldn't be muddy.

I'm the kind of person, I don't mind walking to the Lagoon. It's around the Hyatt building facing the docks.

We could always meet up on the patio and then go over together.



Also, is anyone planning to do Naruto, Sasuke, or Kakashi? I'm not sure my friend will be coming in her Sasuke costume, so... x.x I mean, we may have a couple Sakuras, but what about the rest of team 7? *would love to get some fun pictures*

Well, there is a way to get there from the lobby. If everyone meets in the lobby, we can take a 7 minute walk from the lobby, through the pool area and it's exit, and follow the walkway around to the lagoon. It's really pretty easy to get to.

BTW, I'm thinking of doing my Shino for the con, as I didn't get a chance to at the AX.

Crystalike
08-10-2005, 12:44 AM
whee, fun! yay! wait...we have no confirmed Sasuke...that kinda stinks...XP

still no Sasuke...i am so sad...but most likely, there will be one walking around that we can grab. ;)

change of costume plans; only new Sakura. Anko will take too much time to put on...

Midnight will be Sasuke. *uber grin*

?!!? Chizome; can i drive to your house, can i lock up your dad, drag you to the fabric store, pay for your fabric and take you to the convention myself??!!??! AGH! *mutters incessantly

i got an okay wig off EBay for $18 total, including shipping, it's one of those model-type rose pink wigs, it will need some touchups, and i think it's a little short, but oh well...-__-;

Chizome
08-23-2005, 08:28 PM
You probably do >< I'd go along with it too, and throw chloroform into the mix.... >< I'm so sorry, I thought dad would be a tad more helpful.... I'm still bugging him about the fabric though.

Crystalike
08-23-2005, 08:38 PM
good! have patience! eh, well i guess you coudl go for a modern-day Sakura with a red tank top and tan shorts and black boots or socks? ^_^

08-23-2005, 08:44 PM

Hey fellow narutards, i'm in a small band called random ninjas, and I think it'd be quite the rawking if y'all made it out to our show before the masquerade on sunday. We got a bunch of naruto tunes we'd like to play for the anime crowd, and we'd think it'd be totally kick ass if the audience was filled with a bunch of Naruto cosplayers rocking out with us!

Haha, so this tangential-threadjack is an earnest invitation to all you fellow nin to show your allegiance and have a narutarded time with us!

They didn't even leave a time and an exact place incase anyone was interested.
Sheesh, I had to go seaching for it for my self. So here's a copy for you guys.
I got it straight from their website, so any spelling mistakes are NOT my fault!

Time The Random Ninjas are performing: September 4, 2005
11:00AM between Pine*AM and the CosFest!!!
Where: Long Beach Convention Center

(Remember - The Naruto gathering is scheduled for 11 AM on Sunday)

That's kind of sad, seeing that we planed to meet at that excate time too!
So even if we all wanted to see it, we wouldn't be able too.
Oh well, these things happen.

Crystalike
08-26-2005, 10:48 PM
Wow! the Random Ninjas! =D i am soooo interested!!! <3 <3 aww, well, i guess we could watch at least half the show after meeting up? ^_^

Chizome
08-27-2005, 01:08 PM
ZOMG!! HELL YEAH!!! or we could just meet a little earlier... *shrug*

Crystalike
08-27-2005, 05:05 PM
XD yes, that is another option. we can use our skills to poof into the concert!

Chizome
08-27-2005, 05:09 PM
XD of course! Go ANBU Anko/Sakura/other show thingie..... poof!

Haha, any efforts by fellow nin to catch our set is always much appreciated... even if it requires slitting throats/explosive seals/seducing the burrito-eating guard, etc.

I actually wish I could make it to the gathering myself... but as a random ninja, I would probably be killed five seconds into the first photograph protecting a much more charismatic cosplayer from stray kunai.

Hey there everyone, I noticed you guys dont have a specific spot planned for your Naruto Gathering yet, I was wondering If I could make a suggestion?

Like Kaato (RN Bassist) said, Random Ninjas will be having a concert at the same time as your planned gathering. and I thought wouldnt it be great if you guys could have your gathering at the Random Ninja's Concert?

This way you guys wont need to carry around a stereo to play your Naru-tunes, the Ninjas got ya covered

They have a Haruka Kanata and other Openings in the song list and they composed together a 16minute Naruto-Meledy (okay that might be a lie but it still is one hella long song) ^_^

hey everyone! I'm probably going to go as a retarded little random genin, Hinata-ish, but I was wondering about the gathering time.

I'm totally going to Random Ninjas concert (like the Narutard I am), but I want to go to the gathering, too! :( Is there anyway the gathering time can be changed?

Also, I read through the thread but I didn't see where the decided location is going to be. TASUKETE! :lost:

How's about the Random Ninjas booth after the concert?

NO! That is a terrible idea! Can you imagine the chaos?!!!!!!!! The band is the main attraction. There will be lots of people gathering to see the band, and throwing in a bunch of Naruto cosplayers will cause a second attraction, CAUSING A FIRE HAZARD!!! Anyway, either A) Change the time or B) Forget about the concert. In my opinion, the concert is not worth seeing, because they are an amateur band.

So, you have an ultimatum, either A) Go to the band and change the gathering time or B) Go to the gathering and forget about the band (I said it twice so you can't say you didn't read it!). Choose wisely! We only have so many days left. FOUR DAYS!

The location to meet WILL BE THE FRONT OF THE CONVENTION CENTER. From there, we will decide where we will actually take the pictures. Okay, people?

Actually, I don't think you're that far off...I think it is 16 minutes long!! and that's just ONE of their Naruto Medleys!! :skidude2:

YAY TOSHIRO MASUDA MUSIC RAWKS! :bigtu:

Plus RN is doing this special *show* this time that they didn't do before... :jjacks: :dance:

I'll agree with the DaBossKnight that it would be very difficult to take pictures of the gathering as our concert is being performed, so he has good reason to argue against having the aforementioned Naruto gathering in the venue AS our concert is occuring.

He's also unfortunately correct in noting that we are indeed something of an amateur band, as opposed to a professional band. A professional band would likely be signed to a label, and would no doubt not only be compensated for their efforts and expenditures, but also be making a profit as well.

Random Ninjas, on the other hand, is an unsigned band that has spent several thousand dollars of their own money on practice space, gear, and promotional materials, not to mention over a hundred hours of practice not only writing original J-rock/pop material, but also learning a large number of anime songs that anime fans love because we're anime fans too. Like you man. :-/

In anycase, if the sole criteria for seeing any given band is that they be signed to a huge label, are super famous, and make tens of millions of dollars, then I suppose we must part ways in the end as we're not the band for you. To those Naruto fans of you who just LOVE anime and japanese culture, like I do, and are spending the entire weekend devoted to your world-encompassing fandom, then I hope you find some time after the gathering to make it to tail end of the Random Ninjas concert, as it is definitely dedicated to all the Narutards at the convention. We may be an "amateur band', but we're working hard to express our affection for the hobby we all love.

So, hope to see the lot of you there this weekend, and don't be afraid to stop by the Random Ninja's booth on sat/sun to say hi and grab a sticker or two for the road!!! ;-)

that's okay, this thread is NOT for dissing anyone, especialy the Random Ninjas who so politely invited us to come see their show! >=o anyone who wishes not to go watch may stand off at a distance and watch the NAruto group dancing and rocking around.

Alright, I've been thinking about it, and if you people would like me to, I could bring my Pakkun cosplay for your guy's gathering... but yah. ._.; So if anyone wants me too, I will. But only if some people say so. XD

I'd better go review the lyrics so I can sing along...what kind of random Naruto genin would I be if I didn't know the lyrics :woah: :square:

So when and where's the gathering! I got my camera ready! :D

oh, and my friend made me this kakashi ninja mask that freakin rocks! yay!

*sigh* Well guys, I'd love to say I could join you but I'll tell you right now, I probably won't be going. *incoherent dark muttering* *stabs a Barbie doll* If, by some miracle, I do make it, I won't be able to cosplay. I doubt *daddy dearest* will be dependable, and I'd love to see everyone at a different con, but by the look of things, seeing how this turned out, I don't think I'lll be getting to ANY cons until I'm 18 and out of the house. Sorry. Hope you guys have fun.

Most of them were taken by my awesome friend Tore and a couple by me. Feel free to use them if you want. ^_^

They're mostly from the second half of the gathering cause we got there late (heh, huffing and puffing XD) and then the camera got there even later than us. ^^;;

I totally know wut u mean I was probably the only Sasuke at AX that didn't quite get the hair down. I also hated how impossible it is to skate with those stupid sandals! I ended up just wearing my skate shoes instead cuz I figured it would b more fun if I could do tricks as opposed to having the costume down (same reason I didn't shave either, I look silly w/no facial hair)[
I think its better if u just have fun w/it. So many ppl get all upset over costumes that aren't accurate and I think cosplaying is more about having fun than being accurate. Of course there r exceptions (ppl w/cardboard signs can die a horrible death for all I care)
