Lightbulb Who was What?

Hi, everyone!

I'm Ryan Williams, part of Limebarb.com. This year was our first year really trying for cosplay at Anime Central, and we made a ton of costumes. I realize that a lot of people probably don't know who was cosplaying as what, since there were so many convincing costumes this year. I thought maybe to help me and anyone else who isn't sure exactly who was doing what, we could all list what costumes we were in on what days, and maybe post pictures of them to help people out!

Also, I'd like to get to know everyone active at ACEN so we can make some friends for next year.

Or group was:

FRIDAY: Chobits
  • Chii/Elda (Barb)
  • Dark Chii/Freya (Julia)
  • Hideki (Ryan)
  • Shinbo (Eric).
We were the dark and light chiis with the pink/black dresses, and Shinbo had a little Sumomo on his bag. Oh, poor Sumomo. I wonder what became of you....

SATURDAY: Video Games
  • Rydia {Final Fantasy IV} (Julia)
  • Link {Super Smash Brothers/The Legend of Zelda} (Ryan)
  • Peach {Super Smash Brothers/Super Mario Bros.} (Barb)
We had the Amano styled Rydia (think lots of green), the adult Link with sword and shield, and the Princess Peach with the HUGE pink dress. ^_^ That was my favorite day (Even though the hideki costume was cool, I liked my Link much better )

SUNDAY: Pita Ten
  • Ten-Chan (Ryan)
  • Kotaru (Eric)
  • Misha (Julia)
  • Koboshi (Barb)
The crew got into their Pita-Ten costumes as a reward for being in bone-crunching corsets for the past two days. I couldn't resist being Link again, so I went on my own. It was okay though, because I got to take pictures with cosplay.com's Malon and an excellent sheik. Barb eventually got back into her Peach outfit for more pictures and the day....went very well.

We had 11 other full costumes at Anime Central, but worn by other people.

I'll update this with pictures as soon as I can find some (We didn't take any of ourselves), and I hope that everyone else can provide their own costume descriptions and pictures. That way, everyone (or maybe just me) will be able to put these forum names behind those great costumes!!!

-Ryan

EDIT: Fun with vB code.

On Friday, I was Metal Gear Solid 1 Snake, along with my friend Ben, whom was a guard from the Nuke Warehouse Area in MGS1.

Saturday, I was Iroquois Pliskin from Metal Gear Solid 2, and Ben went as the Spike Spiegel with glasses and short green hair. Spiked up.

Sunday, I did "Snake Eater" from Metal Gear Solid 3 (out in '04), and Ben reprised his role as the Nuke Warehouse guard. (I'm gonna work on his costume more and make it Johnny Sasaki-ish).

Every day, I had the cardboard box. Unfortunately, wearing it all that time made me pull every bloody muscle in my lower back and legs, which has left me in pain for a while. It might miss a day or two of cons.

Hi Ryan!!
It was great to see you two again.
Loved the costumes
and congrats to your group on winning best journeyman craftsmanship award.
I almost didn't reconize you two on the first day but I'm happy I got to talk to you two at the con.

For everyone who was at Acen I was dress as Dita from Chobits in the afternoon on friday and whole day on Saturday.
Umm here's a picture of me in my costume taken with one of the Chii cosplayers.

huttah! Ryan is figuring out forum boards!!
here was my lineup-

Friday I was Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth, but the costume was from the second Artbook and no one knew who I was ;_; I was the girl in pink with flowers in my wig. Later that evening I changed into Charlotte from Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust, but again no one knew who I was *sigh* I didn't really mind though, I was comfy

Saturday I was Alexiel from Angel Sanctuary. x.x dooode, the wings are PAINFUL. I changed into Charlotte again after the masqurade.

Sunday I was once again Charlotte. XD It's just such a comfy pretty costume!

Yes! I have figured out the boards! Well.... Not completely. :\

Oh, Lordy! I love Dita! I want to cosplay as Zima more than ANYTHING! If I do, I promise I'll drink nothing but Zima all con long....

I wish I had thought of all my Meier Link jokes for your Charlette, Beth. I love how he calls her "Shaaaarlette".

I simply have to say I like your costumes you wore at ACen.
I wanted to take a picture of you
when you were in your Karen-chan from Sister Princess.
I'm glad I got to meet you and talk to you a bit.
Hopefully I'll see you later in future cons. ^^

I didn't arrive until Saturday morning. My cousins Andy(older) was Human Inu Yasha and Alan was Shippo. Around the afternoon, Andy was jealous of how many pictures Alan was getting and forced Alan to switch him costumes. ^-^' kids... Alan wouldn't give it up until my aunt gave him $10.

SAT(morning): Kagome ~ Inu Yasha --thanks Limebarb!!
(afternoon): Dizzy ~ Guilty Gear X/X
(evening): Shia-chan ~ Pita Ten
Sunday: That was my shopping day, didn't really wear a costume

Oh I wish I could have gotten a picture with this group:
SUNDAY: Pita Ten



Ten-Chan (Ryan)

Kotaru (Eric)

Misha (Julia)

Koboshi (Barb)
