Ouran High School Host Club 2008

Hello there. I was wondering if anyone out there will be cosplaying
OHSC (Ouran High School Host Club) for Sakura Con next year. I will
be Mitsukuni "Hunny" Haninozuka. So yea...if you are an OHSC character
drop a line to this thread & if I actually do go we can maybe form a group.

It's very, VERY possible that I will be bringing along my Tamaki cosplay since it's easy to travel with and fun to wear. I may also have a Haruhi coming with me so yeah, the possibility of forming a group could be fun =)

Will this be your first time going to Sakura Con next year? I noticed you
were from Alberta, I'm from British Columbia. ^ ^ Say, while on topic do
you plan on going down there and staying at a hotel with anybody? I'm
a little unsure how to get this gathering started but I would like to get
one started with people. So this is open for suggestion or idea you may have

Oh BC, that makes us province neighbors~
Anyway, yes, this will be my first time attending Sakura-con and at the moment I have a room booked at the Sheraton for 2 nights. Although I'm still not 100% sure who's going to be in the room with me...I'm trying to get 2 or 3 friends to come along but if not, I may be going it alone ^^

As for gathering a group together, I've done it before and it's usually just a matter of finding other people cosplaying the same series. So having the thread here and starting one on the actual Sakura-con forums is a good start. Once there's enough interest then it's just a matter of organizing a time and place for everyone to meet. It's still a little ways away but once the con gets closer I imagine there'll be more activity around here

If we can pull together a group, having a tea party or giving out flowers is always a great thing to do with Ouran. I did it at a local con and it was tons of fun and a huge hit!

Hmmm I really like some of your idea's ^^ Especially the giving out flowers,
the only problem I see with that is where we can actually buy flowers and
if they will last long enough during the con aswell as how much it's gonna
cost. Also, a tea party sounds like fun. As you say closer to the con may
pick up and we can fiqure out from there and see if anyone wants to join in

Part of me is wondering about doing an Ouran character, but don't know who.

Depending on height and such, I could see you become Kyoya or maybe Mori.

Yeah, I would have to agree with Usachan, I could see you as a Kyoya or Mori. I would try and convince you to take on Mori since I never seem to be able to find one at a convention...there needs to be more people cosplaying him!

As for the flower bit, you'd probably have to buy flowers the morning of the day you plan on handing them out...preferably. Although I'm not sure what kind of stores are near the convention centre/hotels. Chocolate roses are also a possibility XD

From what I can recall yet remember about flower places around Sakura
Con there isn't any. I had a dream about us giving flowers and I want to
run it by you but I wonder how you feel about plastic flowers and inside
or attached to a pipe cleaner sticking out of the flower we put pictures
of Tamaki, Hunny, Kyoya, Mori, Hikaru, Karou, and Haruhi on them hehe.

I love the idea! Like each host club member could have the color of rose that represents them and attach their own picture. I know Michael's has some *really* nice fake roses that I used at Animethon this year. We could get some of those...and if we can't find the proper colors, spray painting works wonderfully ^__~

Awesome 3< I'm so happy you love my idea *blush* I would be willing
to explore this idea and go to Micheal's sometime in the next month or
two. Come by MSN often and we can discuss this. Again, I have to say
it's a shame you live in Alberta, if you wanted I could call you sometime.

I'll be going to Sakura-con as Hikaru. I have yet to find a Kaoru, though. The flower thing sounds interesting, I'm sure there'd be a lot of attention following it.

Awesome! From the pictures you have in your gallery I think you make a great Hikaru, now we just need to find you your twin. If I wasn't already doing Tamaki I'd volunteer, considering I adore Kaoru.

I think the flowers would be a hit. I've noticed Ouran has some of the craziest fangirl followings out there [me included] =) I'll try to get on MSN more often Usachan and yeah, we should definitely talk on the phone sometime~

Haha thanks, it was an unfortunate fate, seeing as I didn't plan to do either of the twins. So far the whole 'twin' search isn't going too well. >_<

Fake flowers would be a good choice, seeing how they're a lot cheaper, and last longer.

Sweet! ^^ I visited a Everything for a Dollar store and they were selling
white, pink, and red fake roses. How many roses do you think we'll need?

Also Jacko I just thought I would let you know that the best time to be
online is usually around 8pm your time, seeing as you an hour ahead of me.
