Title: Post Fanime Thank You! Kingdom Hearts Gathering
Post by: maikiritori on June 12, 2010, 07:44:28 PM
Rhoswen_Cosplay will be taking over this gathering! Yay! Thank you for stepping up to make sure this gathering will continue to happen!

The link for the new thread is here:

I will be locking this thread, so please go check out the new one.
Thank you.

In 2013 I volunteered to take over the Disney gathering at the last minute (and ended up running two of them). Things went really well and I decided to do it again and things went fantastically. Again, I am encouraging Disney cosplayers to hangout after their gathering and participate in our KH gather.

We will be doing one group shot at the beginning of our gather for the non cannon cospeeps to participate, because our group has always been an open and friendly group. The same will be true for the Disney gathering that happens right before KH. If you show up early and want in on the final group shot of the Disney gather, I will allow it.

The Extended Family Disney gathering link is here: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,18710.0.html

Please feel free to stop by and participate!

Thank you everyone who showed up to this gathering!! It meant so much to me to see such a huge turnout for my last time organizing this gathering, and subsequently helping to make my last Fanime so incredibly amazing! I hope you all will be as awesome/amazing/spectacular for the next organizer to step up. I will miss these gatherings and all of the friends I have made over the years. Please pull together next year and help each other out as much as possible pre and at con, seeing as the Cosplay Gatherings Department will be going through some major changes. Also, if anyone has a public photo gallery for this gathering, please share it here and in any other appropriate threads. There was no CGD Photography this year.


I will be asking for this thread to be locked after a month, to make the transition to a new organizer as easy as possible.

Depending on the date the gathering is on. . . .
Three of my friends will be there as KHI Sora, Donald, and Goofy, and myself and four other friends will be there as a KHI surprise  ;)
So, a total of 8 people, if that matters.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2011! Updated 6/20
Post by: maikiritori on June 22, 2010, 07:07:04 PM
Well so far we haven't even begun discussing the date/time that the gathering will take place. In '09 it was two days, (Sun @ 5 was the biggest), and this last year Sat @ 12:30. In '09 the turnout was just slightly less than in 10, so I was going to suggest that day/time. However, it is not my decision, it is everyone's decision.
I won't put you on the list until you all know whether or not you're all going to be there. I'm still looking forward to seeing you all there. ^_~

Its my own version of how Xion would look like in Halloweentown (if she didn't have her Organization coat). ^^;;

And for that second question, I made my own Keyblade. It was made out of wood and a Styrofoam board. I had no time or money to buy one online, LOLz.

Meh, put me down as KH2 Riku for next
years Fanime...even though I WAS the
orginizer for Fanime in May this year,
but someone took MY place, and no
one knew I was the orginizer? Or did
they know? Well, either way I was the
one ment to be the KH orginizer last
May for Fanime, but I guess people
replaced me. ;w; So much for orginizing
a KH gathering huh? I came there late so
it was my fault anyhow. But, I got over it
and Sh*t. =w=; But yeah, exspect me to
be there even if you don't list me down for the KH list.

I'm not so sure if I should come as Female Version Sora, or just Sora from KH because Sora is kinda overdone now so I don't know if I should be one or another, anyone have an opinion on which one I should be, creative or original?? =__="

Well, you could always go as a giant Sora die (the other penalty from the Gambler Nobodies), then there's always interesting twists like KH and KHII Sora costumes (split lengthwise down your body). Or maybe an "Arabian" Sora. There are several worlds to choose from, why not have some fun with them? I know that if I were world hopping, I would pick up local clothing to wear while I was there, and for momentos.

Hmm... Well, this is only my idea, but we should have a Halloweentown shoot during the Gathering. :3
Since some of these peeps are going as Halloweentown versions of KH Characters (like myself... maybe).
That would be really fun. x3

Post by: maikiritori on September 08, 2010, 02:03:23 PM
Hi guys!! I'm sorry that it's been a while since I updated the list, but it has been slow on the boards for a while. I figured I'd just let a few pile up before I updated. I also re-organized the first post, so it should be a little bit easier to find things. If I dropped your name, please let me know. I'll fix it right away.

Other than that, I have a few things I'd also like to announce. We have our first KH cosplayer! (I was afraid that good ol' KH would be left in the dust). We still don't have anyone from CoM, c'mon peeps!
I also have a question for:

@monikamilani: Which KH? I'm not positive, but I think there might be some changes to Sora's costume between 1 and 2...

A~nd

@chibi*H A N A T S U K I: I think that's a great idea. I was hoping to have the photo order hammered out by mid-January at the absolute latest. I'd also like to have the MP, L and time done by the same deadline. (Sunday, January 16, 2011, 23:59:59)

And last but not least <3

@elaborateflowers: That would be sooooo AWESOME!!!!

PS: @ munchkindoodles, I haven't confirmed you on the list yet. You haven't said specifically who you or your friends are planning on cosplaying. Please get back so I can add you to the list!

Thanks!

I'm going to this gathering no matter what, lol.

But anyways, photo order... Hmmm.
Isn't KH Re: Coded coming out soon? :U Maybe we could mix that in with KH1 since... It's basically KH1 Sora (and other peeps). xD;
I guess go in the KH chronological order? (Ex: Birth By Sleep, KH1, KH:CoM, etc...)

I dunno. What do YOU guys think? xDD

Post by: maikiritori on November 16, 2010, 01:38:25 PM
I was actually hoping for Sunday around 4 or 5. In 09 the second kh gathering did really well @ that time, and I think the gathering last year would have been a lot bigger if it had been set for a later time.

Post by: chibi*H A N A T S U K I on November 16, 2010, 09:38:32 PM
@Maikiritori: Actually, that day and time is perfect! xD; 'Cause I'm not sure if I'm skipping school on the Friday that Fanime starts (lol. I'm such a bad girl 8DDD). If the Gathering were to be on that Friday, I don't think I'll be able to make it. >A<;
And I'll probably be attending the Final Fantasy Gathering (as well as a bagillion other people LOL), so~~ Sunday @ Any time is fine with me! (:
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2011! Updated 11/02
Post by: maikiritori on November 17, 2010, 11:00:36 PM
As a responsible adult, I should not endorse your skipping of school. As an awesome cosplayer, I totally endorse your skipping of school... So I choose to ignore that part about skipping... >>
I want as many people to be able to participate as possible, so I'm glad to hear that Sunday would be a good day. ^_^
Now, if only more peeps would voice their opinions....
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2011! Updated 11/02
Post by: chibi*H A N A T S U K I on November 19, 2010, 05:44:45 PM
LOLOL. Well, I have this stupid week where the whole school doesn't do anything academic (which is like, RIGHT before the Fanime weekend), so I don't see why I should NOT skip. xD;
 
E-Err... Well, anyway...
Yeaaah. A lot of people were saying that they wanted to attend other Gatherings on that Saturday last year. >3<; Sunday seems like a good day. (:
LOL. I feel like I'm the only active/excited person here. xDD ~!

All three. lol
Hanging with awesome people at a gathering full of planned mischief is the best way to spend a Sunday!

Seriously, though. I like the idea of having the gathering on Sunday. :) There's less going on that day so people won't have schedule issues.
Unless it gets in the way of MusicFest. Then we have a problem. xD


As for photo order . . . .
I would say that we should just go in chronological order, but it feels weird to put BBS before the other games. (though that's probably just me) xD
Another option would be in order of release?
Or we can do something totally random and draw names from a hat or something. Just for fun.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2011! Updated 11/02
Post by: maikiritori on November 21, 2010, 10:18:44 PM
I see said the blind man as he picked up his hammer and saw... LOL.
I totally agree with you on how much fun everything sounds. I'm really looking forward to haning with all the cool peeps and having an awesome time.

And as for the photo order, I don't mind how we do it, I just wanted everyone's opinion. I don't want to just arbitrarily decide without first giving peeps a chance to make their thoughts heard.

I would like to go over to Cesar Chavez Park by the fountains for a lot of the photos, I think there are some great photo ops there. If no one wants to do that, there are some other locations right next to the con that would also be good for photos.

Btw, I didn't really follow the KH thread for last year, but to everyone (or if it was just one person) great job on organizing the photo order. I saw the list last year while was manning the CG table. That was a very comprehensive list, and broken down very well.

Post by: chibi*H A N A T S U K I on November 21, 2010, 10:30:41 PM
Ah maaaan! I'm so excited to hang out with all of you! >w< ~! But in general, I'm very very VERY excited for FanimeCon once again! ^__^

Any photo order is fine with me. (:
I guess we could have the "good guys v. bad guys" thing again, or something like that. Either way, I know it will be fun. I'm sure of it. :3
And I don't mind any location either. xD The park sounds like a lot of fun, especially for all those Demyxs out there. xDD Perfect Demyx v. Sora scene don't you think? :]

For last year, we did make up some of the photo order. But for the most part (since someone else had to take over), I think it was mostly the attendees who made up the photo order. :3

I like the idea of early Sunday, maybe 10-ish? So it's not too hot. Last year it got pretty warm and I'm thinking about those of us in Org coats and other long sleeved/armor/warmer KH cosplays -__-;

I also like the park idea! It's got the water thingy, trees, open areas, lots of photo possibilities.

Just out of curiosity, which Org members do we have accounted for atm?

Yeaaaah. It was pretty hot in that "sauna suit". =w=; But I guess I'm pretty used to it. lol.

How about Sunday at 11 or 12?
10 may seem too early for some folks (like me LOL. I'll be sleeping like a log after Saturday, that's fersure). xD;
Maybe even 10:30? Around 10:30-12 seems like a good time for peeps. (:

Oooh. I totally forgot about the heat.

The 10:30-12:00ish area sounds good.



As for location, I've only been to the convention center/the area around it once, so I have nooo idea. x3

The trees will help with some of the heat if we can get a spot with some good shade... I'm really looking forward to all this! Why can't fanime be here now???

Hmm... What places have trees? LOL.
I guess the front has some trees. xD; But it will probably get crowded there just like last year. >3<;
We need space for our awesome group. LOL.
That one park is always available, I guess? xD;

Anywhere is fine with me though. As long as I'm not gonna melt in my Organization coat. Hurrderp.

OMG! I'm so so so excited for Fanime already! ;w; Only like 5 months to go! DAMMIT! ;A;
Speaking of Fanime, has anyone else bought their Pre-Reg. badge? xD

Post by: maikiritori on December 01, 2010, 11:03:00 PM
Well, the park does have shade... That was what I was talking about. But there is also the quasi park that's over by the library. It's on the Hilton side (the big building you see when you look out the windows in the reg. line, and if you're standing in the reg line, you'd look to your left) There has been issues with bums loitering there in the past, so I'd rather not use that area. It will have more than enough space for us (it's big enough for about 70 people) and it does have some good shade. However, I'd much rather use the park. I believe this is the official abbreviation: CCPFH = Park across from Fairmont Hotel (Caesar Chavez Plaza)

So, just making sure.... We have 18 confirmed, 13 unconfirmed (either they're not sure who they're cosplaying, or I have only heard from a friend of theirs that they will be attending.) on this thread! I haven't looked over everything for C.c, but I'm gonna bet we have some good numbers there too. ^_^

We're also pretty much set on Sunday, with 2 votes for 10 to 10.30 start time and one vote for a 5 o'clock start time (me). I also see that several peeps are cool with whenever and wherever the gathering happens, so long as it happens and doesn't interfere with anything else that's going on.

I do want to make sure that whatever time we get, is what we get. As the Official Cosplayer Gathering/Events thread 1st post updates, I'll update here.

Oh. I don't think that I ever confirmed my group. xD  (I posted them on here as a maybe a while ago . . .)
We have: KH1 Sora, Donald, and Goofy && Five people in a supersecretandawesome KHI costume.


Thanks for all of the work you're putting into this <3

@Maikiritori: I like the park idea! It seems convenient enough since I might be going back to the Fairmont hotel again. (:
And there's a water fountain for all the Demyxs to play in. xD ~!
But yeaaaah.
Thank you for putting such hard work into this~ ;w; I'm looking forward to the gathering (if I hadn't said so already lol).

Oh me, oh my. Time certainly flew by since the last time I posted/updated. Life got in the way a little bit. I apologize!

Anyway... @ Dilemma, the 5 people in a supersecretsuperawesome KH1 cosplay... just a wild guess but I'm thinking that it's one of the boss heartless. ^_^ I hope so. That would be sooooo amazing.
@chibi, Yay!! I'm glad someone likes the park idea.

I was (just so y'all know, I'm having soooo many typos right now... gee maybe if I wasn't up @ 2 in the morning this wouldn't happen?) talking to a few of my cospeeps offline about the park thing, and they suggested doing a more personalized photo shoot after the initial shoot. That way anyone who needs to go to get ready for Music Fest or (I think BWB is on Sunday) BWB, they can do that and still participate in the awesomeness of our gathering.
If not everyone wanted to go to the park (since getting photogs to follow us is kinda hard too) we could also ask for the Fountains in Front Hilton Side (FiFHS) for our meeting. We'd be in the shade of the trees, still have water for some awesome pics (A lot of the main characters lived on an island/were in cut scenes that had water/water elemental attacks).

If you guys have any suggestions for meeting place or actual gathering site (if different from meeting place) then, please speak up. I really do believe in Democracy. (lol) I was also going to be bringing a special (little) treat for everyone, so if anyone is allergic to anything, please let me know.

I'll be updating the first thread before the end of the month, but I will most likely be making more mistakes than fixing if I do it now. So, good night everyone.

Happy Lunar Eclipse and Happy Solstice, Happy Holidays!

Hurrr... I didn't know there was gonna be a solar eclipse (I blame Edward Cullen HURRDERP).

Ouuh! Now THAT sounds like a good plan!
I don't know about you guys (which is quite a few lol), but as long as there is shade I'm fine with any place for the gathering. The only thing I'm concerned about is the space we'll get. Don't want no crowding and bumping, right? ;u;

I would totally make Vegan Sea Salt Ice Cream (it tastes just as good as the original~) if only the hotel room provides a freezer. =__=;
But... TREAATS! I LOVE TREATS~! YUM YUM YUMMM~ :"D And, I'm not allergic to anything. ^^;

@maikiritori: While I can neither confirm nor deny your guess, I would advise that there should be some keyblades handy during the gathering ;)

Also, my group would prefer to have the gathering by the fountains.

The five of us in the one costume can't eat(the costume is in our way); everyone else doesn't have allergies. Thank you! :)

Post by: maikiritori on December 22, 2010, 10:04:32 PM
Just to update a little, there is quite a bit of concern over the day and time of the gathering over on C.c, so I have given them the oppertunity for two gatherings over the course of the con. Most likely a late afternoon gethering on Thursday and our 5ish Sunday gathering. This is just a possibility. Because it is a possibility, I wanted you all to know about it too. I'd rather have one gathering, because I will be super busy with con staff department second stuff. I probably won't be able to cosplay for both of them, since my Sora is a very limiting costume and I have to move around a lot.

All that aside....
@Dilemma, when you say fountains, you mean the ones closest to the main entrance of the convention center/hotels, correct? The park seems like a long trek for the five of you if you have to do it in your costume (pre assembled).

Waaah! I'm sooo sorry to be updating 19 days after the latest I said I would. At the beginning of the year I started working one full time job and one part time job so I would be able to afford things before, during and right after Fanime....The down side to this is that I spend all of my free time sleeping. I apologize.

Aside from that, we're looking at bout 50 people confirmed and unconfirmed who are planning on attending. Yay~! I'll be updating the first post here in a moment, to reflect the changes.

Sometime soon, I will be posting what I think will be a good photo line up, and I would like all of your thoughts and ideas.

I'm soooo looking forward to this year. ^^
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2011! PHOTO ORDER, YOUR SILENCE WILL BE TAKEN AS ACCEPTANCE
Post by: maikiritori on January 20, 2011, 02:12:18 AM

Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2011! Updated 1/20
Post by: BSaphire on January 20, 2011, 10:53:24 AM
Hello there KH cospeeps! With the #'s of possible attending for this gathering I would like to offer a suggestion or two.

My first suggestion is Sunday @ 5 pm because the best turn out of KH cosplayers I have ever seen has always been on Sunday towards 5 pm. With that suggestion & taking into consideration the Organization XIII & heartless cosplayers not to mention if a Goofy, Donald, or Micky show up.... I would like to suggest FHS (side of the convention center up in the corner with the trees) or the tree side of FiF HS  (across from the fountains) to hold your gathering at.

Some of you may have other cosplays planned for Sunday & may even be wearing your KH cosplay for Saturday's Cosplay Spectacular. Having it Sunday evening around 5 pm offers rewards such as the Delta Breeze coming in to cool things off a bit, sun is lower so there isn't as many problems for the photographers, less time conflict with other gatherings, and to top that off a group could form to go for dinner or ice cream when the gathering is over and still get back for the Black and White Ball or Music Fest. ** YUM! Salty Ice Cream! **

So, help Maikiritori out and take into consideration my suggestions to let her know what would really be a good idea for all this KH Mayhem.

Are there any princesses signed up for this gathering yet? I didn't see them on the list, and I noticed the cosplay.com thread for this isn't updated. Depending on weather, I want to go to this as either Alice in Wonderland or Ariel in her sail dress from KH2.

Unfortunately, the C.c first post won't edit for me. So I've just been posting the list periodically as we go along. I updated C.c at the same time I updated this list. I don't think there are any Princesses of Heart confirmed for the gathering on either site. There were (I think) two cospeeps who have tentatively said they would show as certain Princesses, pending other gatherings. They never updated with a firm yes or no. I believe they are still listed under unconfirmed on the C.c thread.

Hi guys! I just wanted to make sure everyone's still kicking. ^_^ I know I am. Not very hard, or with very much enthusiasm (16 hour days will suck the live right out of you). I was also checking to make sure everyone had a chance to look over the proposed photo order. I just want to make sure everyone's opinions are taken into account, so please speak up if you don't like it.

Heey.
I'm still alive!

Sorry for being gone/not having any input for so long. Had to make costumes/a skit for SacAnime, then school started and -brainsizzle-.


The photo order looks nice, and it seems that nothing was left out. If I can think of anything we're missing, I'll report back! =D


As for BSaphire's location/time suggestion - the more people the better, right? :3  And I can't say much for location, again, because I've only been to the place once and don't know the area very well. :P



And, good news =D We've switched up our costume so that it's easier to move in. Don't worry about us anymore. xD

Excitement!

Ohh! Just to update on both threads, I'll be Organization Xion now. Not Halloweentown anymore. ^^;

And as for photo order...
The photo order is fine with me. Like what Dilemma said, I don't think there's anything missing. It involves almost all the characters.
OH. Now that I think about it, I guess maybe add the Disney characters? And the KH versions of FF characters? (:
Can't have Kingdom Hearts without those two! x)

@RikuCosplayer, I promise not to bring anything with nuts. That's a fairly common allergy so I wasn't going to just to be safe... But it's always nice to know something for sure.

@Dilemma, Thanks for the heads up. <3

I'm going as Rapunzel because we're having a Disney gathering before this one. Since Rapunzel isn't part of the game, I won't be in the pictures if you guys don't want a Rapunzel photobombing the gathering lol! But I will be there taking pics on my little camera of all of you for sure at least. :D I love Kingdom Hearts gatherings!!

Post by: maikiritori on April 25, 2011, 02:37:21 PM
@carladawn: I don't mind if you are in the photos. Kingdom Hearts had so many games that there might be a picture of Rapunzel somewhere, that no one really noticed before... Or she may be mentioned in the mobile game that was released in Japan. For all we know, she could be a Princess of Heart that managed to escape Maleficent because Mother Gothel had her trapped in the tower.

I just found a fan made Rapunzel Kingdom Hearts stained glass floor like all the other princesses have. It's cute! http://ardennaouvrard.deviantart.com/art/Kingdom-Hearts-Rapunzel-190370689

Post by: maikiritori on May 16, 2011, 04:43:46 PM
Hmm.. Usually it depends on how big the group is. The smaller ones can be as short as 15 minutes. But given our size, I'm going to say we'll be around for about an hour. My current count is 66 and previous KH gatherings have averaged 55 cosplayers actually showing up. The bigger the gathering, the longer it takes to organize, the more photographers and spectators show up. They can get pretty hectic. But, that won't stop us from having a blast!!!!

HEY THERE!!! I just wanted to say that even though I could hardly speak and my cosplay didn't get finished in time, I had an absolute BLAST at the gathering. I hope everyone else did too.

And a HUGE shout out to Luxord for helping me run the gathering. Luxord, you were FANTASTIC! Drop by the CG GET next year and I will give you the thanks you deserve in person (hopefully my voice will be intact.)

I hope to see you all again in 2012!!

The Queen here! Was a lot of fun, even with the rain coming down on us. Was so great meeting new people as well as seeing some old faces!

Also, I hope I didn't come off standoffish or arrogant or bossy or anything along the lines of those. After the gathering ended I felt like I had behaved that way, but I truly didn't mean to be and felt really bad about it afterwards.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2011! Updated 5/23

@Ska_Kitti ~ The photos will be posted in the first post of the One Stop Shop thread that's stickied under the main header of this section. I just checked a few minutes ago and they haven't been posted yet... But as I said, they have 13,000 photos to go through. Please give them a little bit of time. ^_^

@Musicalpencil ~ I thought you were awesome and I didn't have any problems with you. I kind of feel bad though, since I couldn't really run the gathering once I got down there. 2012 will be better! I promise... I'll also be bringing more treats. I don't think what I brought was enough >>

Also, also, the CGD is looking for staff members... If you would be interested, or know someone who is; have them pop on over to the CGD thread and read the first post for more info. (I know it's a shameless plug, but I'm only doing it here)

Ok, there is a Fanime staff meeting next weekend, and I'll be double checking on the de/construction of the library and checking out a new gathering area. The Hilton side, and unfortunately all of the trees, will not be available for the 2012 con year. I'm going to be looking for an area that will give us some good photos and will also provide shade. I hope to have a link with pictures of the prospective area up soon after the staff meeting. If anyone has any ideas about alternative gathering locations, I'd love to hear them.
I'm looking forward to seeing you all in May!! XD XD XD

Truffles are AWESOME!!!! (I went to update the first post and realized I don't know what kind of truffle)
@manik_semiramis-O: What kind of Truffle were you going to cosplay??
Hi izzyfizzu!! AKA chibi!! So far it's looking to be later in the day (most likely again at 5), so I'll put you down as a possible Xion until the time has been set. :D
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's awesome costumes and happy faces! 126 days left!!

The submission requests have opened up and I'm putting down last year's photo order (just so we have something). Did anyone have any suggestions or any changes they'd like to make to it? I've copied and pasted last year's photo lineup so you all can review it. :D  
Only 115 more days!!

Main Photo Order:
Nobodies/Heartless/Specialty Costumes
Sora/Riku/Kairi
Ventus/Terra/Aqua
Roxas/Axel/Xion
Sorak/Riku/Kairi/Ventus/Terra/Aqua/Roxas/Axel/Xion
Organization XIII
Halloween Town
Group Photo/Props/Various Characters
Good vs Evil
Fun Stuff (also done @ park if y'all want to)
Park Fountains:
Destiny Islands, Traverse Town, Rising Falls, Atlantica, Port Royal,  and Halloween Town.

My research:

Fictional Timeline:
BBS
KH
CoM
358/2 Days
KH2

Main Characters:
Sora, Riku, Kairi, Mickey, Dongald, Goofy, Ansem the Wise/DiZ, Xehanort/Ansem, Org 13 Members, Xion, Naminé, Roxas, Aqua, Terra, Ventus, Maleficent, Venitas, Nobodies and Heartless.

Main Worlds:
Destiny Islands, Traverse Town, Wonderland, Deep Jungle, Disney Castle, Olympus Coliseum, Agrabah, Monstro, Atlantica, Halloween Town, Neverland, 100 Acre Wood, Radiant Garden/Hollow Bastion, Space Paranoids, Beast’s Castle, Land of Dragons, Pride Lands, Port Royal, Dwarf Woods, Enchanted Domain, Castle of Dreams, Deep Space

Also, after talking with B; we've decided that the FiF MS (back where the trees are) would be the best place to have the gathering. There will be shade and some good vantage points for the photographers. I hope everyone is alright with this. :D

Anyone see the Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Trailer?  Because I might switch to Shiki instead of a rare Truffle~

I just now watched the trailer and I want to play so bad. >_<
It'd be awesome to see Shiki, if you really wanted to change it up. :D

Post by: maikiritori on February 28, 2012, 11:50:35 PM
Ok, I updated the list. I'm not sure where Xemnas (Final Form) falls under... Probably Dream Drop Distance... However, since the game hasn't officially dropped Stateside, I'm not adding that to the first post official list. I've listed Xemnas (Final Form) under Various Characters for now.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2012! Updated 2/28
Post by: DarkOneWingedAngel on February 29, 2012, 07:07:24 PM
Final Form Xemnas is from Kingdom Hearts 2, its the White and Black Coat he uses during the final fight vs Riku and Sora.....
So i believe it would fall under Organization 13 ^-^

Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2012! Updated 3/5
Post by: maikiritori on March 05, 2012, 01:25:18 PM
Hi guys!
Just a heads up, the MP and L have been changed to the FCC HS (Front of Convention Center Hilton Side) because we will have more room, better photo-ops and it should be removed from the protesters. There is the added bonus that this location is literally right outside the Hangout's back door. :)
The time is still the same and the photo order is still the same.

I want to urge everyone to take the first floor of the convention center to get to this location. All the construction gives you two ways to get to this location, and going through the convention center keeps you away from all of the protesters.

I hope this doesn't mess with anyone's plans, and if there are any issues; please let me know so I can try to make something work for everyone.
81 DAYS!! I can't wait!! XD

I completely understand. I had to skip buying a wig for one of my costumes, because that $50 needed to go to something else. I've also shelved two cosplays for next year, because of monies. But we'll still be more than happy to have you drop by! XD

OMG, I feel so stupid. I was sitting there going through all of the towns and all the people and I couldn't think of anything, so I asked my room mate, and she went off on this rant about Hot Topic... Then Hot Topic was the only thing I could think of. >_< I feel so dumb. Okies. Thanks.


The list has been updated to show ShadowYazoo +1, I'll properly organize all the characters tomorrow... It's bed time.

I've updated the list!! (Yay!)

@ShadowRoxas: You might be able to order your wig from Cosworx and get it before con. They have a large selection and their customer service is fantastic. You might also be able to pick up a wig at con from their stall in the dealer's hall. I also use cosplayfu for some of my wigs (if I don't mind getting a mid-range quality wig), and they do rush shipping.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2012! Updated 5/2

Do they have a specific wig for Roxas? If not, then I'll just be going as Sora.

HI EVERYBODY!!
I know I had a blast and I'm glad everyone showed up. I hope everyone else had fun as well.
I'll be posting links to the photos that the department photogs took in about a month. Last year they took over 13,000 photos, and I know this year they'll match (or hopefully surpass) that number. As soon as I get those links, I'll pass them on to all of you.

If you have links, please post them and I'll put them up on the first post.

I'm looking forward to next year already.

Yes, link to galleries, PLEASE. Let's not have a repeat of last year, where the Kingdom Hearts gathering photos were rare and extremely hard to find, despite an insane number of photographers showing up.

Oh, and I was the Tron Legacy Sora at the gathering.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2012! Updated 5/22
Post by: maikiritori on June 03, 2012, 07:02:07 PM
J Ryoga, yes I will be linking the CGD photogs this year. Last year I searched through all of their photos, but I couldn't find any of them. They took 24,000 photos this year. It'll take a little while to sort through them all, I probably won't have the links posted for another few weeks. :(
Also, every year your cosplay is fantastic; but this year takes the cake.

 ??? well my Larxene cosplay is up in the air. my friends are talking about left for dead cosplays so its kinda getting all mixed up. i'll try to keep updated and see how my other 2 cosplays are going but Larxene right now hasn't been touched or started to be made. Sorry.... I'm going to really try to make it but worst come to worst it may not get done.

*edit November 13* well as of now I have a slim chance of me being able to finish larxene. But I'm trying my best!

*edit January 22* :'( I'm so sad. I'm most likey not able to finish Larxene. I've been behind in my other cosplays and am busy with school work and sports. I hope I can try to make it to the gathering at least to see everyone.

What day will the gathering be?
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts 2013! Updated 1/30
Post by: maikiritori on February 01, 2013, 03:41:43 PM
Unless there are complaints, the gathering will be held on Saturday @ 5 on the big slab FCC HS. This time/day seems to be the best for everyone, but if we need to move it, we can. I'm totally flexible with it.

It's already on the first post; but if there are any issues, I can change it. No one's objected to this time/day as of yet.
Title: I have props for photos if wanted!!!!!
Post by: Rhoswen on February 04, 2013, 08:39:56 PM
I may as well throw it out there, that I do have a keyblade that I could loan for the gathering... It's a prop I made and I also have some halloweentown masks at the moment for larxene, axel, sora, and demyx. I should be able to make a couple more if anyone wants me to. But if you want to look at a tororial i put up on youtube send me a message ^.^ i'm always happy to help out.
So if anyone wants me to bring some stuff go ahead and ask me. I'll be happy to loan it for the gathering photos.
As of my KH cosplay... I may be able to find something quick and easy but i still don't know.

I am in the process planning to cosplay as young Xehanort but may need some advice about his keyblade

I know its "no name" but

Post by: maikiritori on February 21, 2013, 11:49:39 PM
I'm really lenient about KH ness ness. My view is that pretty much anything Disney or FF is all systems go because the KH universe allows you to do an infinite amount of crossovers.

@Hachimitsu-ink: I think it does glow, but I don't know how you'll be able to make it glow... Maybe try with some really bright paint/glow in the dark paint? It won't really matter because of the time of day the gathering will be, but if you're going to be carrying your keyblade around after dark, glow in the dark might work. You could always try to insert tube lights and batteries and whatnot, but I don't know your skill level, budget or time constraints. This could always be a long term work in progress. I'll put you down as attending on the first page. XD

@Pologirl: SWEETNESS! Also, as I already said, Um is totally cool... A heartless Um or a nobody Um twist would be an interesting addition to the gathering. As always though, even if you're not in costume; you are more than welcome to show up and have fun with everyone.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there!! 90 days, yo.

Also, I'm looking for someone to help me organize the gathering on site. The last few years have been difficult for me, because I also work for CGD and I've been late to the gathering twice (only 5 minutes, but still...LATE). Please let me know if you're interested in helping. Mostly, all you'll need to do is help me with letting either photogs or cospeeps know what poses/countdowns we are doing.

Well the dress bottom with all the tulle was strained, so I started to hem it up... And then it got layered incorrectly and now if I want to make an alice dress, I'll have to redo the whole bottom portion of the dress. I needed more tulle anyways :p

First off on the keyblade I'm sorry to hear that. But I'll have mine with me if you want to borrow it for photos. And on the organizers... I don't know >.< maybe organize things? We will be informed I hope...

Tough luck on the Alice dress and the keyblade (respectively), that totally sucks.

As for organizers, you guys are my back ups on site. You guys will help me organize everyone into whatever grouping the photos are for. This is a 60+ gathering, which usually means I end up losing my voice by the end of it, trying to get everyone together. Usually you're just tightening up the group, so there isn't a lot of empty space in the photos. If you're uncomfortable with being a co organizer, let me know. I promise I won't be angry. I completely understand.

I hope that answers any questions you have. :D
47 Days left!! >_<

@Hachimitsu:
 Oh noes! I'm not sure on if the elmer's glue would help. I guess try it on a sample piece and if the paint doesn't eat through, then go all out with the glue.

I hope you can make it! We'd be happy to have you! :D Even if you can't come as Xion, drop by anyway!!

I finally finished Trimming the FAT out of the keyblade..
I had to freaking use a Power saw blade to take out the three tier foam board + Balsawood that has clamped together with Gorilla glue because frankly the damn Cutting blades i use keeps breaking apart!. ...I SHHOULDVE USE THIS BEFORE HAND T_T!..

anyway now that this thing is nearly done (tooth issues on the top corner is off..wayyy off)
I would like to know what the hell is the color for no name? I Know its black but somehow it displays a shimmer of indigo.. the keyblade does glow but the problem i might be facing would be getting the battery compartment to fit with the clock built in!...

I am also researching on the Spray paints and I heard something called Liqoudtex... well point is I need a recommendation for the spraypaint, and yes im working may ass off so hard to get this ONE keyblade done T_T!

any suggestions?

No name seems to be a composition of different shades of blue consistent with Cougar (clock area), international Klein (top hand guard), and cerulean (hand guard and blade tips). 

 As for batteries, I have no idea what kind of clock or lights you're using. However it is doable if you can match the voltage just right to balance them all. If room is a big problem then disk batteries will have to do otherwise you'll have to go for a very special kind of battery. Do you know how much power you need?

Okay the colors would make sense in some way..  (the hand gaurds is not cerulean btw).
Lights im using electroluminescence tape and Wiring. That is if I can get the income / shipping to arrive before then. Battery wise i was considering using 9 volts since the wiring is over a 40 inches. and should be bright enough. Otherwise i may have to remove this feature.

Not sure how you guys are doing but since fanime is comming very soon, I am hoping you guys have your materials done.

An actual date would be nice, then I'd be able to tell if I have time to cosplay for this one. Is Sunday out of the question? I'm sort of booked Friday and Saturday.

By any chance does someone think a megaphone would help at all? I'm just throwing it out there. Can't wait for Thursday and I'm stressed. It's finals week and have to finish a friends cosplay.

I know for sure a megaphone will help, and we can borrow one from the CGD if we need to. Part of having someone help me organize on site, is because I don't want to have to yell to be heard all the time. :D

OMG! Sorry for all of the inactivity on this section. My computer died right before I moved in October and I still haven't been able to get it fixed (between the holidays and the beginning of the year, life has been a little challenging). I'm still here and I'm still running the gathering (along with Disney, and Disney Extended Family).

I'm looking forward to hanging out with all of you again in May!! :D:D:D:D:D

Even if you can't make it as Aqua, I would totally love to see you stop by for a little bit. I'm sure there would be some interesting photo ops that could be had if you and some other cospeeps were down. :D

I'm not too sure on the numbers, last year was 25-30-ish. I guess we should expect roughly the same. I don't have as many people confirm as I used to. They mostly just show up, since it's been held on the same day/time for the last three or four years. Whenever there's a new game installment or special release, the numbers jump by 15-20.

Well just putting this out there, currently running the Monty Oum gathering which features one of his popular works called Dead Fantasy featuring both Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy characters. If anyone can show up that would be awesome.

Last time I actually got everything in order. except alot of problems happened..

1) the zipper on my organization outfit BROKE and it was difficult to zip the damn thing..
(4 months later i found a product that actually FIXED that with a plastic zipper thingie..)

2) MY HAIR was really really BAD!. and apparently im not a good stylist at all, i followed the instructions and did it okay with the first spikey effect but the BENDING part I HAD alot of problems.. in the end it became a mess..

3) my keyblade was splitting apart and I had to repair it using via HOT GLUE and not gorilla glue...

in the end.. i felt upset that my cosplay was a wreck v_v becuase everywhere i see, had amazing costumes and was shameful to show up!...

I'm sorry I couldn't attend because i know everyone would be questioning who i was supposed to be..
I hope this year I can participate as young xehanort.. but the biggest focus i want to cosplay is Link in a kingdom hearts attire.. the master sword keyblade WILL be different so... I hope i can pull this off..
so you might add me as either young xehanort or this one

Going as a young Eraqus (an image I found of deviant art anyways).

Though I was planning on making lots of wayfinders, it's not possible for me. For the level of detail I want, I'd require a 3D printer which is something I don't have and don't have access too. So perhaps I'll think of something else.

Thank you everyone who showed up to this gathering!! It meant so much to me to see such a huge turnout for my last time organizing this gathering, and subsequently helping to make my last Fanime so incredibly amazing! I hope you all will be as awesome/amazing/spectacular for the next organizer to step up. I will miss these gatherings and all of the friends I have made over the years. Please pull together next year and help each other out as much as possible pre and at con, seeing as the Cosplay Gatherings Department will be going through some major changes. Also, if anyone has a public photo gallery for this gathering, please share it here and in any other appropriate threads. There was no CGD Photography this year.


I will be asking for this thread to be locked after a month, to make the transition to a new organizer as easy as possible.

Also, even though I'm no longer organizing this gathering/returning to FanimeCon next year; I was thinking of putting together an Alice in Wonderland themed mini golf day/photo shoot. This would take place in late fall or early spring,  depending on when would be best for everyone. This isn't technically FanimeCon related, so I'd any of you are interested, please PM me, and we can discuss everything in further detail there.
