So, since several of us don't have our Pokemons ready - any idea if any of us are doing a skit at Anime Punch?
Pokemon - who has something?
Ouran - A lot of us have outfits, and if just doing skit wouldn't matter that all the jackets don't match.
or I can loan out some Naruto or a few Fushigi Yuugi outfits if anyone has any ideas. Right now I am blank on actual skit content.
I'm officially calling together a Ghetto cosplay gathering for Youmacon of this year. It's been awhile since we've done this and lots of us will be at Youma, so I think it's the perfect time to show off some bad costumes!
1. Any anime / video game / manga you want to do is fine. I'm ruling out L and Light from Death Note now though as those are TOO easy.
2. Don't spend over ten bucks.
3. People have to be able to tell who you're cosplaying.
4. Do the best you can with the worst materials. Broadcloth, duct tape, cardboard, garbage bags etc are all fair game! Ghetto fabulous is the order of the day!
5. Feel free to "Amano" it up.
And, please, by all means get everyone else in on this! Rogue, Flexei, Izuro, CC Will, whomever is going to Youmacon should look just as ghettolicious as we will!
Alright guys, I know not everyone was planning on entering the craftsmanship portion of the contest at AP, however, for those of us that are...there's some kinda odd info in their rules that I thought you should know:
" You will be judged on overall effect, as well as craftsmanship, persona, and attitude. We are not simply looking to see that you are a dexterous tailor/seamstress, we are looking to see how well you can become your character, or how well your character becomes a part of you. In short, don’t just make an costume and put it on, WEAR the outfit, and wear it well! Dazzle us.
If you did not make your costume, don’t be afraid to tell us during judging. Give credit where credit is due. While we will take a look at the technical skill, it is only one of many areas we look at during cosplay judging. If we give an award, we want to make sure the proper parties get the credit due to them just as much as you will."
So...this is kinda weird. First of all, it's not craftsmanship, at least not completely. And it looks like even commissioned costumes are ok o_O;; So...I guess I want to see if people still want to do "judging" in addition to a skit. I think in this case, for me at least, I'm not going to bother with Masquerain (at least for AP), and instead I'm gonna do Sudowoodo because heck, why put in much effort for this? Anyways, let me know what you guys think, plus what you want to do skit-wise.
Bad news guys...chances are pretty good that I'm not gonna get the weekend off for Anime Punch. I might be able to come out one day or half a day though. I'm still gonna try and have my Pokemon dress done just in case!
Reasons behind this are that we don't have as many people in my dept anymore for coverage. ;_;
I'll let you know for sure when the time comes but for now and for planning purposes consider me out. Especially since if I work any day of that weekend it'll be Saturday.
Sorry guys! ;_;
Hey everyone! *waltzes in*
Sooo Kim will be in town Saturday and I'm free after I take the GMAT (wish me luck?). Who wants to meet up? I'd so go to Akron if it wasn't so far and I have to open at Express the next day. Boooo!
Tracikinssss are you coming down with Kim?
Leave details so we can plan, yes?
Anyone interested in attending the Midnight Launch of the new Smash Bros game with me? One of the local Gamestops is having a tournament and possibly a character costume contest too (the clerk said they were but he didn't know anything else about it). I know some have you have costumes that qualify already (I'm looking at you and your Daisy, Tracy-tan!) and even if you Mario and Luigi are easy enough to do. Hell, you could even just grab a box and go as Solid Snake.
(Oh, and the cat would love to have you over again, Cassandra!)
It would be on the night of March 8th, a Saturday. You can spend the night at my place (keep in mind I have a cat though) and we can play Wii / Smash Bros all night. Or we can watch anime. Or have an orgy.* Your choice.
So is anyone interested?
*You are responsible for bringing your own supplies if we do indeed have an orgy.
