:o  They have Naruto Nikes?!  *googles*  Hey!  That's pretty cool!  I see that several online stores are selling them for about $70-$75, pre-shipping and pre-tax.  They're a bit pricey for shoes, but it's not that bad compared to normal Nikes.  From what I can tell, the Naruto Nikes are Air Max 360, right?  Normal Air Max 360 retails for about the same or moreI am soooo tempted!

You found them for $75?  I could only find the for $130 before shipping...from Japan.  I'll have to look harder.  I can do like $90 including shipping.  Yay for the internet.  :)

Ah... Sorry!   :-[  I went back to double check.  All the online stores that I found them in are all sold out.  They're pretty popular, I guess!

No worries.  Believe it or not my life will continue if I don't get Naruto Nikes.  I only realized that they existed because I need to get new shoes and when I was researching what kind is best I saw a mention of them.  My students would FLIP OUT if I wore Naruto Nikes.  lol.

Why would this be a problem in a big gathering? sorry for the stupid question, but really, I want to know.

I assume that by "this" you're asking about the idea for Naruto couples photos?

Quote
The romantic in me would love to see cosplay pairs (i.e. SasuSaku, NaruHina, NejiTen, etc.) but I don't think that would be a good idea in a gathering as large as this one.  It could easily get out of hand.

There are a few reasons why I think it might be a bad idea in a larger group.  Here are a few:

1.  Organization: large groups = harder to organize.  How are you going to pair up cosplayers?  Randomly?  Make it like a school dance where boys ask the girls?

2.  In a group this size, there are going to be a lot of perfect strangers.  Romantic couple poses are (usually) more intimate than say team poses.  Some people might feel uncomfortable with posing romantically with a perfect stranger.  And I don't want them to feel pressured by the group to do something that they're not comfortable with because "everyone else is doing it".

Whereas, in smaller groups, you generally know the other cosplayers and are more comfortable with each other.  (I have friends that cosplay from the same anime/manga together as a group.)  Often, when I'm trying to get a photo of a specific pair together, I try to find cosplayers who are already hanging out together and look like they're already friends.  And I ask them privately, not in front of a big group, so that they can feel comfortable turning me down.

3.  Romantic poses can range from the innocent (hugs, holding hands, standing closer together, etc.) to the risque.  What offends one person might not offend someone else.  So it's probably better to stay away from it altogether.

*shrug*  Just my two cents.  :P

ahh that does make sense. I don't like it but it is true.

Last year after the main gathering started to split up a few groups got together for the more "risque" pictures.  If there are people comfortable enough with each other to do romantic type shots, that would probably be the time.

Hey fellow cosplayers!

I'd like to go this gathering.  :3  I'll be cosplaying as Gaara on Saturday.

Someone suggested couple pictures, and I'd love that, but unfortunately, barely anyone ever cosplays the other half of my OTP.  :/

Anyway, I can't wait to see you guys there!

You got my curiosity piqued.  By my count they're at about 49.  However, they are a MUCH larger convention later in the year and neither their list or our lists can estimate people who will arrive at fanime ready to cosplay and not post their intentions on the forum boards.  I'm sure they'll have a lot of cosplayers...but we are set to be huge ourselves this year.  Looking forward to dominating the fountains with Narutards.  :)

We should do some strange sesame street style count off to see how many people are really there.  "1 Naruto...mwahahaha, 2 Narutos...mwahahaha, 3 Narutos...mwahahaha......(45 minutes later) 6 Naruto's, 3 Sakura's, 7 Sasukes, 3 Kakashi's (10 minutes later) 14 Akatsuki Goons and some random guy with leaf village head band"  Obviously I was kidding about that.  :)

Hello all :)

I'll (hopefully) be at the gathering as some form of Sasuke with some friends of mine. At the moment, we're leaning towards AU cowboys, but you never know, so I guess I'm an unknown?

Looking forward to the gathering :)

undecided.  What kind of food sounds good for ninja.  I suppose I could bring a few packages of instant ramen...but I'd really rather not.

Pizza is a good crowd pleaser.
