I went to the MetroCon 9:00am tryout yesterday. This year, they went over a LOT better for me than they did last year. Many of the previous cast members went to the early tryout. The acting portion was a lot better this time because I didn't have to read a script. It was entirely improv, at least for me and my audition partner. I think it's different for everyone.

The athletic portion went over pretty good too. This time, I did a forward roll to make it fancier. Since we were in a different part of MOSI this time around, the ground was a little uneven, so I almost did a flip by accident. The judges said some things to me during my acting tryout that gave me a lot of confidence that I might get the part I wanted.

If anyone is going to either of the tryouts next Saturday, I would recommend bringing water and to warm up before going. You'll be doing a lot of stretching and your shoulder muscles will be burning when you're done if you're not in fairly good shape. Also, be sure to have fun with it. You'll do better that way than if you get all stressed out.

I wanna know how you do!!!! I get all excited and stuff when I see people in person I meet online, and my friends and I are going to metro since this summer my parents can't tell me no.. Well, safe people, no old perverts for me! Though, I guess with my age, it would really be pedophilia and I wouldn't be so attractive.. Ah, ignore ramble, I get really hyper when I have cranberry juice...

The "Chess match, Masquerade, & Metro Star Party" tryout is on Sunday. The Mascot tryout is on Saturday.

The guy that played Cervantes in 2007 and Ganondorf in 2008 leads everyone with a bunch of exercises after orientation to give everyone a mild taste of what practices are going to be like. He makes you hold a bunch of positions that REALLY work your shoulder muscles. If you have too much trouble with that, make sure you work out a lot if you get a part.

I don't think the Mascot tryout will be as strenuous, though that's just a guess because I don't know anything about the mascot tryouts.

On Sunday, you can choose what to try out for. The tryout is exactly the same for the chess match, masquerade, and star party. You won't have to do anything extra, it's all part of the same tryout. They'll just write a "C" "M" and/or "S" on your form, depending on what roles you'll say you'll accept.

There's also the Fire Show which requires an extra interview if you so choose, but you have to be 18 or older to play with fire, no exceptions.

Well, I hope I'm going to metro, so if you go again this year, I should be there. If I do I'll be in Ninetails, Talim From SC4, or Utau Hoshina from Shugo Chara.

I'll probably be at Metrocon, too.


~Hopefully, I'll be in a White Mage costume, too~

I'm definitely gonna be at Metrocon. However, if I get a part in the chess match you won't see much of me.

Hey, if you do get in, will you be able to tell us what's going on with rehersal and what's going to happen in the show?

Wished I could go to one of those northern cons
sadly, I am stuck going to all the ones down south, which are not bad, but I'd like to get to go to one of the BIG cons

That's a big No-No! We had to sign an agreement before trying out. I could tell you about the goings-on at practices, but we are legally required to keep silent about what characters will be in it, who's playing what, and anything about the plot. What you see on the website is all the public gets until the show.
