Question Psycho Psoccer at Ota?

Well, we'll be holding this at AX this year, too, but since there will be a lot of cosplayers of PlC (& other bands) at Ota who are already interested, I'm going to try to set it up for there too.
...The problem is I can't think of a good place around the con center to have even a mini soccer game...so it might have to be inside one of the con suites, or maybe even at one of the hotels - but that woud require getting permission beforehand.
I just wanted to investigate possible locations to hold such an activity before we take this idea any further. Whether you're joining us or not for the game, if anyone can suggest a place or know who I might have to contact for special clearance, it'd be very appreciated. Thanx

There's always the skywalk. A large group of people were playing dodgeball or something similiar there last year (the large open space in front of the hyatt). As far as I know, no one ran out screaming Infidels, hookers, freaks, or etc at them. ^^

I'm sure if you get enough people together, a large enough space would easily be occupied ^_~ That's how we handled the Weiss Kreuz soccer game at Acen 2k2.

I really hope it goes through! It'd be a helluva time I'm sure. *inspired to work harder on Yura-sama cosplay*

Oh wow...people revived my post. Yea. >^_^<

Okay, it's gonna depend on how many interested parties there are. Initially, it was going to be a team of PLCers versus any random other j-rockers. Now it looks like there's going to be many Psychos, and then the MM and DeG compliments should be considerable too. ...And as recent news begins to spread, I'm guessing we're gonna see many Takanori cosplayers at Ota too, so maybe we can do kinda a rock v.s. pop thing. It'd be nice to do a couple different matches (because I'm guessing they are not going to last all that long each.)

The skywalk idea sounds great...that's the pavement area in between the con center and the food court, right? I seem to remember another nice big, enclosed, over-street area connected to the Hilton's third floor. Well, maybe this is possible then...room enough for dodgeball, then there's room enough for us. (The back-up plan was that Lilli had scouted out a very nice park we could use....better scenery, but it required a 30 minute bus ride...and that's kinda inconveinent to most people at the con probably....but a good back-up if need be. Still possibly for a pre or post con shoot, maybe...?)

yeah, you guys are so right about all these open skywalk patio areas...I totally wasn't considering them before at all. I was just thinking there wasn't any park area in easy access and that the con center might not let us play inside (even tho there -is- room inside)...but this might work out well afterall.

Hey, what day are you guys planning to do this for? It sounds interesting. ^^ I suck at any sports whatsoever so I'd probably just watch, lol. Plus, if you did it on Friday, there would be no way I could because I'd be in those big high Kamijo platform shoes. x_x *visions herself going flying across the floor because of tripping over the ball and not having enough balance on the shoes and crashing into something*

I know what you mean about the platforms shoes... mixing them with soccer is scary. >_< I know for sure that I'll be wearing my huge black platform shoes at the con, but I was planning to switch to a pair of relatively low heeled mary janes for the soccer game. Less chance of breaking an ankle or two that way >_<

Shoes. Ack. *crosses fingers* I hope I'm not wearing my Toshiya costume on 'soccer day'! Not that I'm good at sports anyway, but I don't mind making a fool of myself. ^^

Well, I know Friday is "j-rock day", but I was leaning towards Saturday afternoon for a few reasons...
1 - we can let even more people know about it at the j-rock panel Friday.
2 - simply the most people will be there in the afternoon of Saturday. (We -could- have it Friday afternoon, but it'd have to end before 4 to accomodate the panel. After that, it might be too dark + you've lost me to the Xeno group.)
3 - on Saturday, people can meet for the big cp.com shoot before playing and getting possibly disheveled by all the movement.
4 - we'll have more photographers who are 'free' at that time period, so we're more likely to get nice photos.

Um, there might have been more reasons, but that's all I remember right now.
And yeah, please everyone be very concious of your footwear. I mean, this is a totally non-hardcore game, but I don't want anyone to get injured.

XD Such a great idea.

I can't play soccer to save my life ~_~;, but I'll take pictures if I can make it! Probably will be wandering around as Gackt or maybe Shinya. X_x

Hmm. Saturday does seem to be the better day. Plus you gotta figure that the TM Revolution concert will be on Friday, and that's probably enough chaos for one day, hehe.

Yeah, Saturday would be a better day for it. I agree. I still haven't decided if I'm going to try to participate or just watch. ^^;; I'll be Die then so at least I don't have to worry about the shoes.

OKAY! Here's the poor buried thread.

Yeah, we -tried- to get a soccer game going at AX, but all the j-rockers had wandered off to Denny's, unknown to me, so I just kicked around with a Yura-sama I had just met and threw an AYA costume on my other new friend.
But for Otakon, we shall be organized! At least a little...

So, this is for Saturday, AFTER the cp.c official gathering (which is at 1 pm...so this will start 1:30-ish)

I'll be stalking the hallways, taking photos, as Prism Lida all morning, so I hopefully won't be too hard to miss. If anyone would like to confirm their costumes, I could make a list here so we don't forget anyone behind.

Also, if your footwear may cause injury, you are advised to have replacement shoes for any action poses. We are not responsible for self-mutilation. ^_-
