I am gonna be making a couple of FF7 costumes and I thought it'd be fun to take pictures with people! So far I know a Cloud, Rufus and Tifa that are going. I am gonna be bringing by Vincent and Tifa costume with me.
Any takers?:D

YIPPiE!!!! I have a groupy to run around with my Yuffie costume!! Sign ME UP for Yuffie (Er, sign me up as Chibi-Lisa, I'm just testing out my new account ^^)!!

Irvy
02-21-2003, 05:47 PM
awesome! ^^ Which day do you guys think would work best for you? I am gunning for sunday.

ainslye
02-21-2003, 06:30 PM
Sunday is absolutely perfect for me. ^^ (that is, if you don't mind multiple tifas)

TyJILDown
02-21-2003, 09:57 PM
Irvy, Sunday would be GREAT! Most likely will be bringing Wallmarket Cloud with me, ideal Sunday costume ^^

Irvy
02-22-2003, 12:50 AM
yea, Sunday is the best day. Saturday is going to be chaotic.

Don't worry about there being multiple tifas. I'd rather wear my vincent costume than my Tifa ^^

Chibi-Lisa
02-22-2003, 06:48 PM
LOL ^^ I'll be wearing it around =P But I don't have anything to wear that day ^^

Mizuho
02-23-2003, 10:49 AM
I'll be wearing my Aeris costume. I'll be glad to get some pictures with you guys if I see you!

I have a Yuffie costume I can bring. But the armor is a bit of a trouble to transport.. Sunday is a bad day to get into armor, then have to get back out quick in order to go home. Not to mention having to try and pack it... I'd personally prefer either of the other two days. But if everyone wants Sunday, no biggie =3

Ok, I've just talked a Cid into attending. I might have a barrett, but I'm notmaking any promises because he's costume-flaky. But we definately have the Cid.

Lady Ava
03-12-2003, 09:58 AM
If Oshi is going to be Rufus, then I'm going as his panther ^^ So, I'll be in if ya want.

TyJILDown
03-12-2003, 08:25 PM
Yea, Oshi mentioned he was going to have Rufus for Sunday :D and pysthe is going to wear Reno on Sunday too, wohoo!

Irvy
03-13-2003, 11:38 AM
We've also got Studmaster who is going to be our Barret ^^ Heh when I am more awake I'll type up a list. I also need to get m'measurements in so I can get my vincent cape asap ^__^

Irvy
03-13-2003, 11:43 AM
Har, I decided I might as well post the sucker up. So far we have

Cloud(Walmarket version): TyJILdown
Tifa: ainslye
Yuffie: Chibi Lisa and Merle Kun
Cid: Ainslye's friend.
Barret: Studmaster
Vincent(chaos version): Irvy
Rufus: Oshi
Dark Nation: Lady Ava
Aeris: Mizuho ..We will track you down for a photo shoot XD
Reno: Psythe
If we could get some of the other Turks,Sephiroth, a Hojo and may be a jenova if that awesome Jenova is around, that'd be great ^^

Reiko
03-14-2003, 08:48 PM

"that awsome Jenova?" :p Well, if you guys want to do a photoshoot or something, I will drag that costume out... even though I'm at the point that I never want to wear it again x.x;;;; (50 pounds to wear it.... 50 pounds) but if you guys do end up doing a photoshoot, I will bring it out ^_^

Irvy
03-17-2003, 01:14 PM
suuugooiii!!!::glomps:: I can understand wearing that has got to be a pain but the photo shoot would be awesome if you were in it. We are planning on doing it on sunday around 12.

LaylaCinder
03-17-2003, 03:29 PM
I'll definately join you guys ^_^ and if you need a Hojo, I can provide one too. Mostly because the Hojos that I've had...have been using partiall my stuff ^^; so I am a "with Hojo, Jenova" unless someone else comes along and is all "oh god, It's my life's dream to cosplay Hojo" then you can give it to them.. but otherwise, I'll provide one.
Sunday is the best time for me personally.. ^^

Irvy
03-17-2003, 04:25 PM

Reiko

Irvy

We are fine with having doubles in this group..so if you want to cosplay any character go for it ^^

Reiko
03-20-2003, 02:24 PM
ummm which one......

Irvy
03-20-2003, 04:31 PM
..I dunno, how about Aeris or Tifa? ^^ I could see you doing either of those.

Reiko
03-20-2003, 05:23 PM
LOL I'm leaning towards tifa...im too short and stubby to do Aeris

Irvy
03-20-2003, 06:19 PM
then you should go for Tifa ^^ I am gonna try and get my friend to be cloud, he cosplayed as Seifer before.(although it was a ghetto costume n.n;)

Chibi-Lisa
03-20-2003, 09:01 PM
ERrrrr, Aeris is Smaller than Tifa ^^;;;; Aeris is 5'3" and Tifa is 5'4"

Irvy
03-24-2003, 12:24 AM
My friend is going to be the regular Cloud for us ^^

Reiko

Chibi-Lisa
03-24-2003, 07:28 PM
Reiko you have to upload pics!! Oki Back on subject...........now for a little help with my Yuffie costume (What should I make the shoulder guard out of =P)

Reiko
03-24-2003, 07:31 PM
make it from a shoulder pad and plaster over top then paint it Silver or whatever color it looks like

Chibi-Lisa
03-24-2003, 08:43 PM
Yep that's what I was thinking. Oki ^^ all I need now are those darn gloves, and the extra metal pieces, my wig, I know where to buy it, and I'll have to make the head piece (Which I have an AWESUME way of making it ^^).

::Loves Sig:: Hmm, should I make lil banners for the Otakon!? For this FF7 group?

Irvy
03-24-2003, 08:48 PM
'Sho, banners are always fun to have ^^

Chibi-Lisa
03-24-2003, 08:58 PM
Ooki! I'll be incharge of the banners! Irvy just post, or PM the newly updated list, soo I can see all the types of costumes. Oh, and when you mean Chaos Vincent, his final limit form?

Here's the layout, I'm gonna fade in the character pics, like Aeris in the first CG you see of her (Fade in the dark surrounded by Lifestream ^^).

I'll be there as Aeris. I'm pretty bad with meeting times so if you see me.. pull me aside and tell me. ^_^

Can do! It's gonna be on sunday so I think it'll be pretty easy to track people down since there probably won't be too many groups.

Adella
03-26-2003, 02:16 PM
Awesome Chibi-Lisa I can't wait. Although I don't usually go to general Final Fantasy gatherings.. or gatherings at all.. I will try to make the FF7 gathering.

TyJILDown
03-26-2003, 08:48 PM
AH that's great to hear! Nice to have a decent size group for a Sunday gathering ^^

Reiko
03-26-2003, 08:53 PM
when is this group meeting?

Irvy
03-26-2003, 11:34 PM
I am thinking 12 on sunday. That cool with everyone?

ainslye
03-27-2003, 01:18 AM
Would a little earlier be okay? I'd like to make the art auction.. isn't it usually at noon? If it's later, then nevermind, noon is great.

Irvy
03-27-2003, 09:53 AM
we can aim for 11 if a lot of people wanna go to that.

Reiko
03-27-2003, 01:41 PM
*jumps around* YES!! FINALLY A GROUP ON SUNDAY!!

Irvy
03-28-2003, 01:30 PM
yea, sunday is the best time. Saturday is gonna be a really chaotic day for groups o.o;

Chibi-Lisa
03-28-2003, 09:50 PM
Well here they are, the banners!! I'll make more for others that later join. I used doujinshi pics to get a cool look for all the characters!
And I also made doubles for the doubles ^^

http://Chibi-Lisa.tripod.com/otakonstuff/

I saved them all on one url, soo just save on your computer and put it on your sig from there. I only did this because you end up getting the Tripod logo if it were to be saved under your sig through my Tripod address ?_?

Um, I didn't exactly make a certain double banner for someone, soo who ever wants, for example, Tifa01, than Tifa02 is left for the other Tifa Cosplayer.

Oh, and the Jenova Banner looks REALLY bad because I couldn't find a good Doujinshi pic of it, SOooo, if anyone finds one, give it to me ^^ And I'll fix it for that poor Jenova Cosplayer with the crappy banner ^^

TyJILDown
03-28-2003, 10:36 PM
Awesome! Thanks for making the banners!

LaylaCinder
03-29-2003, 06:27 PM
Jenova is sorta like.. charlie brown meets FF7... :D but thank you!

Chibi-Lisa
03-29-2003, 06:32 PM
LOL!!! If you have a better picture (You must because you made the costume ^^;;) PLEASE post it because I'll make yah a new banner ^^;;

LaylaCinder
03-29-2003, 06:40 PM
^^; I don't have any like.. manga looking pictures of it, just shots from the game, is that o.k.?

Chibi-Lisa
03-29-2003, 06:44 PM
Actually!! I think I'll draw one Manga style if you don't mind, you'll just have to hold the temporary Charle Brown Jenova ^^;;; (LOL I'm surprised you found it out of the group ^^)

LaylaCinder
03-29-2003, 06:52 PM
Oh, so you don't need a picture then? Okay! ^^;; Also, well I couldn't figure out WHAT character it was...so what I did was, right click it to check and then I realized it! :o Plus, it looks like her now that I stare at it.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
03-30-2003, 12:04 AM
if I do go to Otakon, I might show up as Barret Wallace..

Ansem Boi
03-30-2003, 12:09 AM
Oh! Would it be alright if I came? I could be MP-Cloud. You know..<<

The one from the Nibelheim flashback? Or, do we have enough Clouds to kill a horse? :P

Irvy
03-30-2003, 12:53 AM
The more the merrier, I have no problem with doubles. If you guys want to come as Barret and Cloud that'd be great!

Just to confirm, I'll definitely be there as Aeris on Sunday.... 12 noon is good, because I'll probably be leaving around 2 or 3 to drive home! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE ALL OF YOUR COSTUMES! :love:

Chibi-Lisa
03-31-2003, 06:18 PM
Aw, too bad Adella, I'll be marching in my Yuffie costume on Friday, soo you won't have to feel left out and stuff =P

The_Sephiroth
04-02-2003, 02:41 AM
I'll be going as Sephiroth... I've perfected the costume over about a year, so I have high hopes :bouncer: I custom made it myself from all leather. Its the Kingdom Hearts style trench coat thing... I even have my hair grown down past my lower back... I'm 6'0 so it took awhile haha. After I get back from Japan i'm going to dye my hair white and carefully do my eyebrows as well too... not so sloppy like other people tend to do. Got my mako-colored eye contacts as well. I'm going out to my farm to use the horse-shoe heater to craft myself my own masamune. I've worked on my own swords before, but nothing quite like im plotting for this. At least I won't have to sharpen it haha. Hope to see some of you there ;)

Oshi
04-02-2003, 03:00 AM
Whoa there O_O We have an uber-kickass Sephy too!!! =D
Just... dude... no metal props allowed... though I'd LOVE to see a real metal Masamune >.<

That is true, but it's probably for the best. I've never gone to this particular convention, only the ones all the way back here in Portland, Oregon (Yes I am driving from here to the convention... I've got to deliver the car to a man in NYC so I mind's well get it done then.) and we have no problems with metal props, I guess I forgot hehe. I will have to sell my sword at the convention, because obiously they aren't going to let me onto the plane with a 10' long sword lol. I'm still finishing its 'blueprint.' I'm still trying to decide which type of metal to use. I've made various katanas, and let me tell you, making a good one is pretty tough, especially re-forging them to inscrease their durability without messin up the shape can be very frustrating. Those are usually 4' max for me. My masamune is going to be about 8-10'. LoL. This is gonna take some work... In the meantime, I need to find a realistic alternative... any ideas? I'm not going to let myself be seen with a tin foil sword... So im thinkin, mayyybe i could carve one out of wood... I've never worked with wood, but i'm sure I could learn. After that a good paint job and a few cosmetic additions, i'll be set :)

The_Sephiroth
04-03-2003, 01:58 AM
Another thing... how old are all of you guys participating in this little FF7 crew.

LaylaCinder
04-03-2003, 10:42 AM
Well, I can tell you that I'm not old at all in comparison to some :x But I have been cosplaying for about 3 years, give or take. I made a masamune sword for last year's Otakon, It was only 8' long, though, and it had a slight curve, which... many people tnd to not do right. But basically it was out of wood, sanded well, and painted two with several coats. It turned out rather well, but there wasn't much time to work on Sephiroth for my boyfriend when I had so much to do with Jenova >.<

TyJILDown
04-03-2003, 04:35 PM
I MIGHT also have Elena for Otakon too along with Wallmarket Cloud...I'll see as time goes along.

Anyways, to answer The_Sephiroth, I'm 18.

ainslye
04-03-2003, 09:26 PM
I'm 23, but I look 17 :)

Irvy
04-03-2003, 10:08 PM
I'm 18 as well, at Otakon I'll be 19.

LaylaCinder
04-04-2003, 12:46 AM
^^;... At Otakon I'll be 17. Hi.....like I said, completely younger than some of my costumes tend to let on.

The_Sephiroth
04-04-2003, 08:14 PM
Ah, thats great! I'm 18 as well. Layla, I really like your Jenova costume. Your pretty famous, I have seen your pictures all over, and not just here :). Nice to meet you. I am going to make a blunt wood masamune. I agree that some people tend to neglect the curve. I'm not going to let that happen ;) I'm pretty much done, I think my hard work payed off. I just need to carve my sword... Dye the hair... Should be set after that. I'm excited to meet you guys, should be good fun!

Reiko
04-04-2003, 10:11 PM

Chibi-Lisa

Wait, you guys are planning a skit? Because I think I only wanted to show off my costume at the Otakon, well, either the fashion Show or the Masq.

ainslye
04-07-2003, 10:08 PM
Nope, we're just a sunday meeting, as far as I know.

Irvy
04-07-2003, 10:29 PM
It's only sunday. A few of us are in an FF8 group together and we are doing a skit for that.

Chibi-Lisa
04-13-2003, 02:14 AM
Erg, I'm SOO sorry people, there's a Crisis with these banners... Damn AngelFire decided to kick me out... Soo don't worry, easy instructions to get your banner back up and working. ^^

Oki now, for instance, my banner was http://www.angelfire.com/mac2/chibi-lisa/yuffie02ban.jpg

The bolded extension, just add it to the end of this:

Neko Cathy
04-20-2003, 05:18 PM
Excuse me...

I've been thinking about this for a very long time, but do you guys need a Lucrecia, Hojo's JENOVA project assitant as well as Sephiroth's mother? I've cosplayed as her for Katsucon and I probably would cosplay her for Otakon, but only for Sunday. I did kind of hear that you guys were getting together Sunday, but I'm not too clear... I skimmed through the thread.

If interested, call me up.

Reiko
04-20-2003, 05:35 PM
umm you guys.... what does scarlet (you know the evil chick) wear? I havent played the game in so long....

does anyone know what she looks like?

Irvy
04-20-2003, 06:24 PM
Yea, a Lucrecia would be awesome! ^_^

And errrm..I can't remember what scarlet wears x.o

Chibi-Lisa
04-20-2003, 06:58 PM
Reiko, She wears a long red dress, with a slit in the front, showing her cleavge ~_~. Also her hair is up, I don't exactly remember, but if you go to G-chan's websote, she cosplayers Scarlet.

she looks like Quistis?

Alaria
04-20-2003, 08:40 PM
Reiko: kinda; you should check G-chan's site; she did an awesome scarlet...scarlet has yellow blonde hair in a bun, red dress with a loooow cleavage, slits on both sides and black thigh high stockings with white trim on top

Irvy: I will totally be there either as WM Tifa or as Elena. If we can find a Rude and a Tseng that would be great!

Reiko
04-20-2003, 08:54 PM
umm Scarlet is lookin real good to me...I just have to get red heels...and a wig... I might change...if you dont mind

Do you guys need a Cid from FF7 for this get together? I'll be using his final weapon the Venus Gospel. :)

Mizuho

Is the meeting on Saturday or Sunday? It seems like there was some confusion about this... :thumbsup:

Maybe we can set up two times, even, since there are so many of us (and it is possible that some of us can't make one time). Is there someone who has assumed the role of a coordinator for the Final Fantasy meeting?

Are we going to get together just to take some group photos (in other words-- how much time are we committing for the meeting? :) )

It would be great to see a Cid, Omega! Cid is one of my favorite characters. Reiko, that's fine if you want to change characters-- if you need any ideas, just say so, and I'm sure anyone here will be able to flood this thread with ideas for ya. :)

If we don't have a Wallmarket Aeris (and as far as I know, Adella can't make it for the photoshoot if it's on a Sunday!), maybe we can have somebody else go as a Wallmarket Aeris. Since Alaria might be donning Tifa's blue Wallmarket dress, it would be neat to have somebody be Aeris in her Wallmarket garb. :love:

Other than that.... This group seems really awesome so far!

Reiko
04-21-2003, 12:41 PM
PLEASE SUNDAY LOL.

lol And I'll come back with Ideas lol.

does scarlet have panty hose?

I was debating between Wallmarket Cloud and Elena as I mentioned earlier before. After traveling from New York to Anime Boston with that Cloud wig this past weekend, I am afraid to travel to Baltimore with it, just too much of a hassle with the spikes.

So yea, I've decided between those two, definatly Elena. Atleast that one I can easily pack unliked the spiked wig.

Alaria
04-21-2003, 10:18 PM
Jil: chuu, ur Sivil costume looks so kewl!! ^_^ I'm going to miss seeing u as WM cloud tho; it was so cute and I was looking forward to taking pics as WM cloud and tifa :) But Elena ish def cool; mebbe if Mizuho does WM Aeris I will have someone Wall Market to pose with *pokes Mizuho* . If not, u might have a twin *giggles*

haha Thank you! and Thanks again for making me the new avatar *hugs*

I was really hoping on bringing my cracked out Wallmarket Cloud to Otakon but having that wig sit on my lap for almost for hours on a wig head in a printer paper box was just a hassle even though the spikes were so stiff and were not gonna bend.

But hell, I'm up for Elena twins if no other WM people show :D

Something Lulu

If I happen to wear my Goth Tifa costume, would it be okay if I were to just show up at the photoshoot? I know you already have 2 Tifas, and I'm not even sure I'll be bringing it, but I want to have that as an option.

Alaria
04-23-2003, 12:23 AM
Well repeats are fine, and I think it'll be really fun if we had 3 ^_^

Great. ^_^ Especially since I've developed a new liking for that costume.

If nobody else wants to go as Wallmarket version Aeris, I'll probably end up doing it... It looks so comfy. :spinner:

Irvy
04-23-2003, 02:15 AM
Yea, for this photo shoot it doesn't matter if there are doubles or not. It's all about fun, so if we end up having 20 tifas all is well lol.

Going as Wallmarket Aeris would be pretty cool and comfort is always a plus!

Alaria
04-23-2003, 02:17 AM
*giggles* I'm sure the guys wouldn't mind 20 Tifas either ;)

Neko Cathy
04-23-2003, 09:40 AM
<<I swear I talked to you at Katsu, perhaps I was in my Chloe costume? I KNOW I saw you at least cause I recognize the costume from your avvy.>>
That could be it. Unfortunately I don't know where Chloe's from so... but yea I wanted to find a Reno! :p Turks rule, the end.

<<I was thinking around 11-12 and for how ever long everyone wants.>>
All depends on checkout time at my hotel room (most hotels want you out by 11 or 12). I guess I can make it, all depends on the people I'm traveling with and I don't think they won't mind if we dumped our shit in the van and park at the convention center after we check out, but I'll have to check.

But um.. where do you guys want to exactly meet at? The hallway where the registration is...? That's a major photoshoot place.

<<Well repeats are fine, and I think it'll be really fun if we had 3 ^_^>>
3 Tifas = Fanboy Heaven. :p

Wallmart versions sounds like a good idea. You can even find Cloud's belt in the weightlifting department! XD

I got a costume question that really confuses me about my Lucrecia one. I've seen pictures of her weaing a gray skirt and in some doujinhi scans she's wears white pants. At Katsu I wore the white pants (and in fact there a pic of me in in in th link below with my two friends who went as the imp Moogle and Rinoa), but I'm starting to think that maybe I should consider the gray skirt or something...? I'm also going to get those fake eyeglasses they sell at Claires or at some prep store to bring out more of the scientist look because I still look like I'm 14 when I'm actually 18 when Lucrecia's in her mid twenties.:mad: what do you guys think?

Yea, the glasses might help out and I would stick with the white pants if I was you. I can't see someone wanting to run around in a lab with a skirt on ^^; We'll have to get some Vincent,Lucrecia,Hojo and jenova pics in!

And the registration place sounds good to me

04-30-2003, 05:41 PM
I don't know if you would consider this FF7 or not, but I'll be wandering aroun as Kingdom Hearts Cloud probably saturday and sunday. (My first cosplay! Wheeeee!) KH Clouds will probably be a dime a dozen there, but, hehe... oh well. ^_^

...I always think of Red XIII as a dog... he's so much like a wolf in some ways. Awoooooo~ anyway, thanks for letting us join you! ^^ It's going to be a pain getting the costume done, but I'm determined to do it... ^^; Fur fabric is expensive. Not to mention the fact that I've never made a costume anywhere near this difficult before... oh well, there's always a first time, right? ^^;

The_Sephiroth
05-08-2003, 09:23 PM
There's no way it's a dog. It's clearly a cat :p

Neko Cathy
05-09-2003, 06:50 AM
Actually, Red is more like a lion. If you lookclosely at him, he's ears are pointed like a cat's and his body structure is more feline than canine. To brighten you all's day, I did name RedXIII "ScoobyDoo".

Well, now that I've gotten my summer camp paid for, I can probably go out to buy the materials... though my parents are going to hound me about why I'm spending money while having a hard time saving spare cash for college. >.<

And about Red XIII... I guess he always just seemed like a wolf/dog to me because of the howling. I can't see a cat howling like that... ^^; Though I've seen some amazing realism fanarts of him where he looks like a lion, so I've kind of gotten used to that. Also his back arches up in the front like a lion. He isn't really anything in particular, so it's kind of a mixed bag... ^^;

Something Lulu
05-16-2003, 08:23 PM
I'm done with Tifa. It's just about the only costume I have that I'm not constantly repairing. I'll probably be wearing my modified version of it since I got bored with the regular one.

Anyway, I'm having a heck of a time getting it done, considering I've been away at camp for the last three weeks (and next week) except for a few hours on each Saturday... but I'm determined to finish, and my friend is helping me a lot, so expect me to be there. ^^

Hmm... today is essentially the last day before Otakon for me... yikes... *runs off to work on costume*

I am pimpless... if anyone is interested of becoming my pimp, PM me. Thanks! ^^
