If anyone if interested in this gathering please respond. I know I am a new host but don't feel intimidated. I decided to host because the previous host did not want to and because I love SAO so much and I wish to share my love for this series with others. :)

I'm going as Kirito from SAO, dual wielding.  I would be very interested in going to this and would love to help with the recreation of the fights between Kirito and Heathcliff.
Title: Re: Official Sword Art Online Gathering 2014
Post by: Ariel Ningyo on April 10, 2014, 09:10:57 PM
That would be awesome!!! Now we need to find a Heathcliff.  :) I will look around the forums to try to find one.

Hi everyonew. Newly registered here but loyal attendee for 5 years this year. I always have a great time at Fanime and I'm glad to say that I'll be joining your SAO gathering. I'll be cosplaying ALfheim Kirito. Hope to see you all there :)
Title: Re: Official Sword Art Online Gathering 2014
Post by: Ariel Ningyo on April 14, 2014, 09:39:33 PM
I'm glad you can attend Zack! :) Also archer what do you think about the idea of a battle between Kirito and Silver Crow?
Title: Re: Official Sword Art Online Gathering 2014
Post by: grove_c on April 16, 2014, 12:29:55 PM
I have both a Kuroyukihime (school avatar) and Sinon (GGO).

I can wear either one.

My friend has a GGO Kirito and a school avatar Chiyuri.
Title: Re: Official Sword Art Online Gathering 2014
Post by: Ariel Ningyo on April 17, 2014, 08:17:59 AM
It is up to you grove!!! :) I think both cosplays would be amazing! I would suggest your friend to be Chiyuri though since there will be a ton of Kiritos however it is up to them. It is an SAO meet up after all!
Title: Re: Official Sword Art Online Gathering 2014
Post by: archer1989 on April 17, 2014, 10:41:46 AM
Not entirely sure how the kirito silver crow fight would pan out but I'd be up for it, unless another kirito wants to join in.
Title: Re: Official Sword Art Online Gathering 2014
Post by: Ariel Ningyo on April 17, 2014, 08:00:07 PM
You can do this fight scene too archer :) We just have to find a silver crow than we can plan things out.

Yes, the Sword Art Online Gathering is an official gathering and is listed in the official gathering list.

I will be going as Asuna Saturday and Sunday but unfortunately I have a conflict at the gathering time :( Hopefully I can see some of you around the convention! I'm cosplaying from SAO alone so it would be cool to get some pictures with other characters from the show!
Title: Re: *Updated 5/11* Official Sword Art Online Gathering 2014
Post by: Ariel Ningyo on May 19, 2014, 06:30:18 AM
Aww that sucks! :( I was originaly going to have the gathering on saturday however the saturday schedule looked pretty packed and there weren't so many gatherings on sunday so I choose that. Is there a time that would not conflict with your schedule? Will you only be cosplaying SAO on saturday?
Title: Re: *Updated 5/11* Official Sword Art Online Gathering 2014
Post by: Artemis Cangee on May 19, 2014, 12:12:02 PM
I'll be cosplaying as Asuna both Saturday and Sunday!  Unfortunately anytime but then on either day (a ton of my friends are hosting/modeling in a panel at that time and I feel quite obligated to go to support them!) I wish I had been more on the ball and looked for a gathering thread earlier but I'm sure I'll see everyone around and perhaps I will pop in after the panel or if the panel lets out early :)

Post by: Ariel Ningyo on May 19, 2014, 05:05:00 PM
Aww! Well I hope I find you! We can meet up before the gathering if you want on sunday. I can't on saturday since I will be doing a different cosplay. I will be with Kirito too so you can take pictures with him as well :)

Awesome I will put you down! I am either aiming for either ALO Asuna or Sinon right now cause I have the contacts but I really love Yuuki so we'll see!
Title: Re: Sword Art Online Gathering 2015
Post by: Airyll on February 23, 2015, 03:54:06 PM
I'm planning on going as GGO Sinon. There's only one other cosplay I'm doing for Fanime that has a gathering, so hopefully it won't conflict! :)

Title: Re: Sword Art Online Gathering 2015
Post by: Ariel Ningyo on April 23, 2015, 09:31:45 AM
AliceHakurei when you say you will be cosplaying as female kirito from SAO do you mean a female version of SAO kirito or GGO kirito since he looks like a girl?
Title: Re: Sword Art Online Gathering 2015
Post by: Ashen_Star_Mage on April 23, 2015, 12:52:55 PM
I'll be doing a female version of Kirito's outfit from SAO, not GGO.

The SAO Gathering ended up being scheduled at the same time as the Monty Oum gathering, so sadly I will not be able to attend this one :(. I will still be in my GGO Sinon costume on Sunday though.

So I'm on here looking for Cosplayers to appear in my music dance video I'm planning on making. If any Cosplayers are free and willing before or after the gathering to spare like 10 minutes of their time so i can do some filming it would be greatly appreciated. You'll be credited for your appearance via and/all of your social media contacts.
Thanks.  :D
