YAY ANIME VEGAS!

I am co-director for the Masquerade, so please come to me with any questions or concerns you have about the competition or cosplay in general.

Masquerade rules are currently being revised, along with the awards, and hopefully I will be able to publish them in a few weeks. Signups aren't until August. Because of the new venue we will unfortunately not have a beautiful theatre to use for the show, but I'm sure we'll do just as well in the Main Events room at the Renaissance.

On the cosplay gatherings front: we're trying to get together a Phoenix Wright group. (Did I hear you wanted to be Apollo Justice, AnimeJ? XD) The more characters the better!

Quick question... how are the outside areas around the hotel for photos/cosplay shoots? The hotel looks really lovely, but outside photos are always better if the space is available! <3

Woo hoo! I am so excited to be in a hotel this year! (Although I will miss the theater for the masq. ) The group I'm bringing this year is already shaking with glee about the whole con! (Ugh, 40 teenagers. . . someone shoot me!)

Tenshi: Nat and I are still trying to decide who we want to be in the Phoenix Wright group. Can you give me a list of who is taken or who is needed so we can have help with our choice -- they're all so much fun! (I'm leaning toward Franziska Von Karma if she's available.)

shellypants: I haven't actually been to the hotel yet, so I don't know what it looks like outside. I'll see if I can pop down this weekend and take some pictures of the grounds.

missrelena: Here's the list as far as I know:

Robbie: Hobo Phoenix
AnimeJ: Apollo (please, please, please? XD)
Erin: Edgeworth
Jasmine: Franziska
George: Gumshoe, hopefully.
Me: Max
And someone else as Ema Skye, I think.

I don't THINK anyone cares about doubles. (I'd love a Max army. That would be the best thing ever!)

I registered for Anime Vegas too! I'm looking forward to it since I had to back out last year due to finances (no roomies! ;. But I am determined to attend this year! Hopefully I will be competing in the masquerade. I don't get too compete much any more since I'm too busy staffing these conventions...

I hoping to get my room and everything settled this week. I love this con, I've started call it "my con" even though I don't live in Vegas.

I met some really cool people last year, hope to see them again this year (especially Motoko). I'm also happy we have a bigger venue this year too!

This will be my first year cosplaying at AV and I wanted to know if any gatherings are being planned. Last year the count was about 4000 I think so this year should be bigger, it would be nice to have a couple gathering.

It will be good to see you again, NyuNyu .

Erudito, check out the forums on our main website (www.animevegas.com), and you'll find some gatherings already being planned.

Everyone: here are some pictures I took at the Renaissance last weekend. They're not great but you get the idea.
