AMA is sloooowly getting closer, and I was wondering if anyone had any group gatherings, group photos, that sort of thing in mind.

Myself, my sister, and my best friend will be going as FFAC Aeris, Tifa, and Yuffie, so I would love to get some group photos with other FF cosplayers.

Since we also have Sakura, Rin, and Ino costumes, might as well drag those along, too, so I'd also like to get some Naruto group photos.

Anyone who would like to get together for some FF and/or Naruto group stuff, just post, and it shouldn't be too hard to arrange something. ^_^

HEY! :D I'm just going to call you now, lol. ^_^

But, yeah. What time do you think we'll get there (AMA), Friday? And *should* we stay for two nights, or just leave really late Saturday?

I'm getting a costume together with some help to go as Barrett. A friend is going as Cloud. I'm sure we'll be there on Friday to take pics, but it's still pretty early. More as it develops.:bigtu:

It looks like we'll have a good portion of the AC cast for AMA :) The count so far has Tifa, Aerith, Yuffie, Cloud, Barrett, Loz, Yazoo, and Sephiroth.

Awesome :D We just need.... Reno and Rude and Rufus! And other random people, lol.

Also, I was a bit confused and just wanted to clear this up.... When you said you had just posted this (that you are going to be Cloud, etc) a day or two ago.... What exactly did you mean? Did you mean that you had *already* posted a thread like this? Because I posted this back at the beginning of the month, and I just kinda felt like you were saying, well, *I* already did this, so why did *you*?

but, of course, I'm probably misconstruing this..... @_@ No offense or anything at all! I was just a little.... very confused and like, wha? I really hope I'm not sounding like a jerk or anything. :_:

Just posted my status the other day in a different thread. Not a big deal >_>;

I'm trying to convince a friend to cosplay Vincent. That's another one of those cosplays that's so extremely popular right now (thanks to AC and DoC), I can't imagine there not being one at AMA too.

BTW, am I missing something about Reno? I've spotted three cosplayers in the past week posing as him with their tongues poking out. Am I missing something there? X_X; Doesn't seem very in-character, despite him being part of the comic relief in AC...

omg, Vincent. If you can get a Vincent, I will <3 you. ._.

For some reason, the tongue-sticking out thing and Reno sound familiar. My friend has the dvd, so if I have time, I'll watch it and check. But, hmm. I mean, it could be some huge coincidence, though I doubt it. If it's not from AC though, I'm just curious as to why they were all doing it. Or maybe they're all just channeling Orochimaru......

Mm, also, how has making your AC Cloud gone? ^_^ I read somewhere here that it costs about $400 to make, and, just woooow. I really want to make one, but I don't have that kind of money yet. XD

I've neglected it for a good week or two now because of college. Usually the last two weeks of my semesters cause me to lose any time for hobbies. :(

Cost depends mostly on the materials you use (the nicer, the more expensive), and how often you screw up LOL All I have left is the boots, and the wig. The wig is a nightmare (and there's plenty of evidence for that all over the site)! I'm trying to get a more natural style though, instead of Pomade-to-Death. I may redo the arm cover because I'm not satisfied with it the way it is. I'm very small-framed so it's difficult to find things that fit without sliding.

I'm refusing to keep track of the cost because I don't want to upset myself! It's not very cheap. I had custom tailoring on it though, and there's fake leather invovled, so it's to be expected. Based on what I can remember though, I'm around that number. The costs of some things were inflated because of shipping from Hong Kong/China for things like the earrings and tailoring. International shipping is brutal ^_^; As long as you collect a regular paycheck and stagger your spending, it's not as bad as it looks. I only work part-time so I'm not made of money. I just wait until I've saved enough for the next step (and I started the costume half a year ahead of the con, always good to have that kind of time). But I still don't want to know what it cost me. :D

If you're having a lot of trouble with the wig, I have a friend who comissions them, and they're priced well, too. ^_^ I'm ordering....... 8+ wigs from her. XDDDD

And I know that end of semester feeling..... XD I'll be having it, too, right around AMA time.

And, yipes. International shipping.... *cringes* I was looking at a Sakura figure to buy, and the shipping was $17.00! It's *insane*.

I can't wait to see your costume :D It's sounds great, and we'll be able to get some awesome AC group pictures. It's funny, actually, because me and my friend (Aeris and Tifa) were hoping to run into a Cloud for pictures. :D

And good luck with the boots! Are you going to be making them yourself?

Dante is single too, and is defiantly stoked about all the anime girls everywhere! Please feel Free to attack if you want too…lol… my boyfriend and I went to katsucon as Tohru and Kyo from fruits basket and he was mauled everywhere he went! All I heard was “ Kyo, Kyo, oh my gosh he’s the cutest Kyo I’ve ever seen..can we take your picture”..lol…lol :) I think that’s why Ryan picked Dante! Plus Ryan is cute, so he’ll make a good one! lol

I'd have to look first (even though I insist on pressing on with my own, because I won't give in until I've failed beyond fail :D ) because I'm anal-retentive about this wig. ^^; I looked into commissions before I decide to take it on myself, and it's just a hard wig, that's all it comes down to. I don't want to say anybody did a bad job of it. It's hard X_X; There's been one person who has measured up to my anal retentiveness and sooner or later I'll bribe her with enough money... :D

I'm dying for spring to kick in because my costume smells. SMELLS, I tell you, of leatheryness. I'm waiting for fair weather to air it out. Cloud must have been a drag to be around when he first rigged that outfit up.

I'm going to modify boots, because nobody makes 3-zippered boots. My plan is to just make a sleeve with the zippers on it to fit over the boots I have.

(And just so you know, calling people to ask if they sell zippers is like calling to ask if the aliens have landed yet. ^_^; )

Hey, uh.. some of us are also working out to have some muscle tone. Nothing wrong with that -_-;; I'm not really going for a Starvation Cloud look, I need at least toned arms.

If I wasn't moving northward this summer, I'd probably be heading to the same conventions as you both. I actually live closest to Katsu, but I didn't go because I don't like that con. Or D.C. I went to Anime USA in November, which was a lot of fun, and I'm even a bit disappointed I won't be going next year. I used to live in Va Beach, so I went to Neko and AMA yearly until '03. Had babies by then and I had moved too. I went to AMA in '04, but skipped last year because nobody made it worth my while to go.

The real reason I want to go to AMA this year is because Johnny Young Bosch is going to be there. XD

Gold's Gym. Nice monthly fee, seperate places for men and woman to work out. :D A lot of my friends go there, and they say it's awesome. My dad just got me a membership, and I've even got a personal trainer. :D (I'm so excited; I'll definately be able to make field hockey nationals!)

Oh, gawd, zippers. I know how you feel..... -_- I can never find any good ones.... It took forever to find ones for my tj Sakura, and they still weren't right.

But as for making shoes/sleeves, I had asked about it before, and here's a thread on it, if you need any help. http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=72375&highlight=boots

Meh, I don't need a gym. We have barbells and weights at home. As a single mom I can't afford a gym, either financially or timewise. My boys are my personal trainers, they keep me running all day long ^_^

Easy to get zippers at Joann's or Hancock Fabrics though, and the staff there usually can educate you if you have no idea what you're doing LOL

Thanks for the link!

I'm thinking a fan wouldn't air it out because that fake leather smell has to blow somewhere, right? I'll be glad to pollute the neighborhood air with that smell. I don't like the kids around here anyway. Maybe I'll tell them that smell is from the last kid who left trash on my lawn ^.^

There's also the Virginia Cosplay Society in the forums if you want to find locals. Looks like Kagome already found that though :D

I personally save my best costumes for Saturday, since I have the entire day for them, and there's a good chance I had sleep the night before. XD I also tend to get in later than I'd like on Fridays. Even though I live pretty close to this con, it's still a battle against D.C. Metro area traffic + I-95 on a Friday, so it could take two to three times as long to get there because of that.

I know what you mean about Fridays. XD We missed about half of Friday at Nekocon. Indeed, though, I have noticed that Saturday's seem to be the best cosplay days.

So sometime on Saturday? Maybe before lunch, so afterwards, a bunch of us could all go out and get some pizza or something.

For the sake of not having to parallel park, and repeatedly lose parking space near the hotel, walking distance is preferable. Downtown Richmond also isn't exactly the safest place to be walking around ^___^; Walking in a group is always a good idea!

yep I agree... We'll have 3 big Guys who look scarry with us...that might help alot... lol....

lol, sweet. :D

Okay, so, I was thinking about times, and maybe we can meet up for photos at 11, 11:30-ish, then go to lunch around noon. But I'm not sure.... How long exactly do you think it will take for the photoshoots?

ALSO. This photoshot -the saturday lunch one- will be the FF one. I've just pmed dustbunny, who is also trying to set up a Naruto shoot, and hopefully we can work something out.

So this will be the FF one, and angel, if you find anymore DMC, Resident Evil, etc, cosplayers, just bring them along, too. We're all video games, after all. :D

well.. most people take photos around 12 so we might want to go later than that, or go at 11 and get back by 12... I like being there when everyone is trying to take pics cuz then I get some good shots!

Oh, okay. :D

Let's see, well, there are several other threads setting up shoots, so we'll take their timing into consideration, as well. But, just off the top of my head, maybe we can take pictures at ten-ish, eat at eleven, and get back by noon?

I suppose it could always be after noon (around one), but that would mean lunch at noon, which is when most shoots are, and a lot of people would want to take pictures.

Since myself, you, and angel are the minds behind this, maybe we should talk on IM about this? It would be a lot easier, lol. And, heck, if you want some help suiting up, we'd be more than willing to help. :D

But, yeah.... What time do you normally get up? (I like waking up mid-afternoon if I can help it.... XDDD)

My AIM is AnimatedPoison (can you BELIEVE IT? :D). It looks kind of stupid when you click my AIM button XD

I was wondering when teenage sleeping patterns were going to factor in LOL When I went to AUSA I was sick and not sleeping too easily because of it, but I was still waking at usual time. The boys govern my daily schedule, so because of them I'm used to being up around 10 and eating "lunch" around 1 or 2. X_X;

Yie. @_@ Well, we'll have to work something out, because I have been talking with DustBunny, and the Naruto shoot is going to be on Saturday, as well.

And, angel! For Otakon.... I was going to go with some friends of mine, one bringing her mother to be our "adult", XD, but..... she says that she is not going now, which means that, unless I can convince my friend Helen to come with, I will not have an "adult" (darn me for being 17! Auuuugh!), and...well, I might be able to convine my dad to let me go, or maybe even come with, but it's a slim chance. SO. Since you're also going, will you be my adult?

I take breaks throughout the day to eat and refresh (especially at summer cons, it gets hot, sweaty and smelly-- ewwww), but I generally remain in costume until the evening. Usually during the set-up for the dance, I change out into normal human clothes :D

I used to go to the Cosplay event but I don't enjoy it much. At best, I would leave after the skits and find out later who won because I can't stand the time-killing portion. But when people leave that event, there's usually a revived interest in taking pictures because (1) the event brings in a large group which includes cosplayers you might have missed earlier, (2) the event turns up some costumes people saved specifically for debuting on stage there, and (3) some people come on saturday late just for the Cosplay event so they're excited to see everybody.

SO if the Naruto gang can commit to either the afternoon or the evening, I'd be glad to commit to the other portion of the day.

Im all about the shoot!!! I don't want to miss a thing on saturday!! so many people wear 2 or three costumes a day, if were gone mid day we might miss something...~Obsessive compulsive disorder kicking in~ I hate it when my friends ask me "did you see that awesome such n such costume...it was the best." and I had missed it becuase I wasnt up till 1 in the afternoon. Im an early bird and a night owl... living off 5 hours of sleep a night is what I do.. for gosh sake im 21..lol...

We're going to try and arrange this so we don't miss anythig :D Luckily we have the forums, so we are able to easily find out when the other shoots are.

lol, I live off five hours of sleep, usually, too. :D (Or less.... XD)

And, yay! Thank you muchly ^_^ I would not be able to go without an adult. I can't wait until I turn 18....... Soon, soon.....

Also. I'm really considering starting an anime club (even though I would also be going to the CAC), and if I do, would you like to be a chairman of the club? Like VP, or some such thing? I have one other person in mind for a chairman position, and if both of you accept, I'd need one more.

I forgot that part. XD It WILL be about cosplay, too. I plan on having "Prop Workshops" a couple times a year, photoshoots, "Cosplay Workshops", contests, all that jazz. I even hope that we'll get enough members to do group projects (say, we all dress from a certain show/game/etc and go to con).

It would also be cool if we could all go to cons together, which would be a lot cheaper, because we would get group registration, and and all share hotel rooms.

I'll be there as Cloud and my friend will be there as Vincent as I posted in the other thread. The wig is a nightmare. But I redid mine from katsu and now it looks a ton better. *scratches head off every katsu picture*

Cloud really didn't cost that much for me but I made everything, even the wolfy, my friend made the earring, and I made the armor and swords. So that saves a lot. Anytime you order a completed piece or get something commissioned the price goes way up.

I'll also be there as Sasuke and my friend..maybe will take her Kakashi depending on when she gets out of work that day. I'll be roaming around alone probably until she does.

Also, I'm sure it wasn't mean to be criticism, but I know what the costs are for commissioned work. If I had the skill sets to do myself, I would. I don't cosplay to gloat about making anything, I just like to dress up as whoever, and I give credit where credit is due. In this case, I'll be making cards to promote the people who did the work to hopefully give them more business.

Besides some people are changing costumes later in the day, Like im going back and forth because I have 2 shoots to go to and there are lots of others and the masquarade that I have to get to, But no one really said "10" we just know that around 12 everyone will be taking group photos.

There are a few reasons that I don't like to commit to Saturday morning anything (events, movies, etc.), but I'd like to keep my reasons off the forums, so I'll just say that if all goes well I'll have gotten enough sleep that night, and I'll be there. Wherever "there" is anyway XD I've never been to the convention center, so I don't really have any suggestions for location.

But, yes. 10 seems to be the among the only times that will work. I have three photoshoots X_x, and I think ALL of them are on Saturday. @_@

But, I also have problems with getting up in the mornings. Which is why I have to wake up *two hours* before classes, just to be able to get there on time (I mean, I only live five minutes away from my school XD). And my friend, she normally doesn't get up until afternoon, and my sister likes to sleep in... So I guess it will be a joint effort on *all* of us to get up and ready on time. XDD

Siiiigh....

Sorry, everyone. Like angel, I also won't be there. My parents have banned me from conventions because I had pictures of myself and my sister (in our costumes) online.

So yeah.

I won't be at Otakon or Animazement either. Probably not even Nekocon. However, Katsu looks probable, since I'll be 18, and they can't ground me anymore.

They also made me take everything off my account.... but come Jan 6, it'll be active again.

Bye for now!! I'll miss y'all. :_:

THat's just the definition of retarted. I've heard of some really stupid parents doing really stupid and uneducated things, but honestly. What a bunch of doucherockets. Well, we'll be missing you! Looking forward to your triumphant return ^^;

Until you have children of your own, you probably won't understand why they acted that way. :\ It sucks for SailorKagome, but I understand the reasoning behind their decision. You really never know who's on the other end. We're all taking risks by posting pictures of ourselves on here, and voluntarily providing personal information.

Of course, having been to cons, I know that in such a large group of people with hotel and con security, you're pretty safe inside the hotel and convention. I do also know the kind of creeps that lurk at cons, and that my parents would probably have never allowed me to go if they knew about them.

I wish parents would just volunteer to go with their kids instead of forbidding them to go at all though. It may seem like a drag to have your parents hanging around with you (or a drag to them to have to chaperone you), but the idea is for you to go and have fun and for them to have peace of mind. It wouldn't kill parents to find out about anime as a hobby, and what fun there is to be had at conventions either (and with any luck, they'll be okay with cons and trust their kids going alone in the future). I think that's the ideal situation. :)

THANK YOU! I'd prefer open-minded curiosity and concern rather than conservative, close-minded ignorance. Just because you don't know about something doesn't mean you should forbid it. I can't stand that kind of ignorance and refusal to learn. Your kids' best interests should be at heart, parents shouldn't ban things just because their kids like them and they don't understand it. Blah. :untrust:

As I had posted in the other thread for naruto shoots, i think we should do two photoshoots to accomadate everyone.

The one on Saturday should stay noonish I think, since there are still quite a few people who can do it, and havign it any later interferes with other events that day.

But I was thinking we should have one on Friday too. We can do that more towards the evening to ensure the bulk of us have arrived at the con and are in cosplay ready to go. ^-^;

Whaddya'll think? ^^;

A tentative event schedule is available on the AMA official website now. The AMV contest runs from 3 till 5 on Friday, you might want to move back the shoot. I think I'm probably going to that. Also, the mandatory cosplay rehearsal is at noon on Saturday, could we do the shoot at 1:30 or 2:30 if people are going to the DDR Qualifier or even 11. Just my suggestions. Also, any idea where we're going to meet up yet?

edit: After looking at the map on AMA's site, maybe past the main events room or somewhere near the entrance from the parking deck might work if it isn't overly crowded.

oh crap. haha yeah i wanna go to the AMV contest myself.

Alright, well then friday we can either do it before or after the AMV contest... i just want to make sure everyone has a chance to go to the shoot if they want to.

saturday at 2PM would probably work (compromise between the two times you suggested)

but as for friday, that's kind of up to you. Personally, I think it'd be better to have it afterwards, so more people will be there by then. so what about like 6PM? Or is that too late for everyone?

I agree that later is probably better on Friday. I doubt I'll get there much before 3 myself and that is if my boyfriend can get off early from work. I think the time for Saturday is perfect really.

Alright, so for the Naruto shoots we have times confirmed!

Friday: 6pm

Saturday: 2pm

As for locations where should we do it? I didn't find a black and white layout of the con center on their site... only a virtual tour which didnt show much.

I think somewhere near the main registration lobby would be a good place to do it. Worst case scenario, someone can hold a sign saying "Naruto photoshoot here" or whatever.

Things are a bit crowded on the first floor, but in some ways that will be good as long as thing don't get too jammed up.
