Hotel and Facilities / How was your hotel stay?(2005)
October 03, 2005, 11:44:48 PM
I've already posted my problems somewhere, but I'll do it again just for the heck of the thread. (which is apparently almost old, but eh, what can you do?)

-I had the same room problem at the Mariott, with ordering two beds and only getting one, but my roommates and I raised a fuss about it and got it fixed. The only thing wrong, ultimately, was that we got on a smoking floor, but no biggie there. Kind of sad that our room this year was smaller than last year's, but there's nothing to be done about that, since it slept the same number of people.

-All of you complaining about the lack of cold drinks? You can request a mini-fridge at the front desk at the Mariott. We got one, and it worked great. :)

-Never noticed anything with the elevators, other than that one that broke.

DayDreamerNessa, if you left your makeup near the door, maybe someone just came by and took it. I'm not saying it definitely wasn't them, but it's just another idea. Housekeeping leaves the door wide open when they clean, after all.
They do kind of clean with a vengeance, though... they threw away my plastic baggie that I used to carry my toothbrush...
Oh, a Slayers world... I'd love it... and yet I would probably be terrified of the foods. (How on earth could you look the same way at a dish made from dragon after Try??)
And as much as I'd want an Escaflowne world, I'd probably be unlucky anyway and end up born on earth again.

Umm... I think I'd like to live in a world like One Piece, myself. Those Akuma-no-Mis sure sound tempting...

If it were something I could take part in, two words-- HAIL ILPALAZZO! (Manga only--the anime gets WAY wierd somewhere around the 26th ep)

Two worlds I would NOT want to end up in, though--Gensomaden Saiyuki and Scryed. In Saiyuki, I'd be cannon fodder, because obviously there's more death and angst than anything else (especially being female), and in Scryed... well, that's almost the same thing, only with MORE angst.

Oh, but if I could pick a town to live in, in any anime, I'd probably pick the prefecture that the Tendo Dojo is in. Every day would be interesting!
Jyunishinsho -planning to go into the fountain next year as Zappa and float face first in the water...

that may not be a good idea the water in those fountains tends to not be so clean =/

I think there also tends to not be much water to float IN...

Worst things?

1-Mariott messed up our room. They gave three girls a tiny room with a queen-size bed when we paid for a two-queen. Managed to fix this by making a stink about it, though we were put in smoking. Luckily, apparently there are VERY few congoers who smoke.

2-Both of my friends fell on the stairs, but who gets hurt? ME! Somehow I hurt my knee on... what... saturday? Whenever it was, I had to miss the Musicfest because I couldn't hobble all the way from my room to across the street. As a result, I stayed alone in my room for several hours. Luckily, I brought some ace bandages and was ok to drive all the way home.

3-We forgot that the hotel phone is EXPENSIVE. Hence, we made too many calls (many were complaints to parents about problem #1)  and subsequently, spent over two hundred bucks extra, for which I am STILL paying off my credit card.

Of all of those... I would say that getting hurt was the worst, because it made me miss ZZ.  :cry:
General Anime Chat / Naruto on Cartoon Network

I've been watching it, but I'm two weeks behind right now. It's not as good as the original, but it's one of the better dubs I've seen. I'm a sub person, myself, so me saying this with a series I like so much is... well, it's big. Of the voices I've heard so far, Chouji's is the hands-down WORST. The others, it's just little things. The pronounciation isn't so bad, but that's probably becuase I was expecting it to be like that. The Oiroke was messed up because of the lack of blood, and I was pretty annoyed about the intro/outro thing, and they cut a scene somewhere--I don't remamber where, anymore--but it wasn't as bad as I expected.

Then again, since 4Kids and One Piece, EVERYTHING is going to be better than I expected...
I have one question in regard to the Chess Game... who would be moving people?

...... Actually, here's one more. Where would it be held? If it's directed by two sort of "overlord" players who direct the pieces, you'd need a pretty high vantage point to be able to see the whole board. Also, there might be a lot of injured costumes if the chessboard is too crowded, which might lead to a lot of heated arguments, which might lead to a ban on such activities. If we're using real people, and that's what it sounds like, you'd practically have to hold it in a basketball arena. Forgve me if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen too many giant rooms in the convention center that are at least two stories high. If the game was played on a normal sized board with the moves called out to the pieces, well, that might work, but it wouldn't be as much fun, I think.

Don't get me wrong--I love the idea. I'm just confused about the... well, the battle plan for making it happen. I'd love to take pictures of it, if it ever happens, though....

And on the fashion show, I think it'd be a good idea if you made it more of a Goth-loli show. It seems like the majority of self-designed costumes are in that category, anyway, though that's still not all that common... what if you made it more like a costume challenge? Give out a basic idea, say, "pirates," months ahead of time, and then challenge cosplayers to come up with original "pirate" outfits? The idea wouldn't work now, since I don't think there's really enough time anymore for extra costumes, but if it was announced right after the last con, it could work.

I might still complete my Chrno but it's looking less likely, now that I'm pretty sure that some friends and I are going to be going as Sakura, Chii, and Yuuko from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. I'll be Chii.

I also hope to make a Completely-Released-Curse-Seal Sasuke from Naruto, but I'm not too sure, as one of my friends also wants to go as a curse-seal Sasuke, and two Sasukes in one group is one too many. Plus, the wings might be a hassle.

I was considering going as Lina Inverse, but that might take too much time from the Chii costume.

If I have extra white from the Chii, i might start on a Cure White outfit, though.

Man, I still have too many ideas, and they multiply every time a new volume or episode of something comes out! This is terrible! No wonder I never finish any of them ](*,) !
Um... my friends and I might be dressing as Tsubasa characters... I'm going as Chii, and the others are going to be Sakura and Yuuko. But this is might, mind you.

I'm not sure what you might need tips on for your costume... do you have any of it in mind? For his belt-like things, and the headpiece, I'd suggest that pvc fabric stuff. It's somewhere around $11 a yard, but it's pretty darn versatile. PVC is a good, stiff fabric that looks a little like patterned pleather. I've used it in random parts of almost all my costumes, from headbands (chrno) to belts (nico robin and chrno) to shoe covers (portgas d. ace) to skirts and shirts (nico robin again). If you get black, you'll be able to use it for all sorts of parts of your costume. Don't use it for the whole thing, though.

When in doubt, go with the lightest fabric you can find for the majority of your costume (pants, capes, etc). May can be pretty warm, especially if you're wearing multiple layers or all black. Also, light fabric makes for better photo shots, sometimes. That windswept, action pose, you know.  :wink:
Aww, Chrno Crusade gathering... maybe I should go as Chrno again this year. My friend found a pic of us on the net from 2005, and the caption said "Temari and Vincent Valentine."  :-s
Quote from: "Inu_Ranma"Who are you going to do from Chrno Crusade, CC?

I'll probably just finish the one I did this year, of Chrno. I wish I had some pics of it from this year, though it was incomplete, but I was taking pics for my friend in the Naruto gathering and it was so hot outside that I only had the costume on for about an hour and a half.

Maybe I can do something to make it more wearable in the heat for next year..... probably not without major reconstruction..... heck, maybe I'll just try and go as Fiore instead. It was really hard to try to think of poses that just Chrno does--at least if I try for Fiore, I can just stand there and look brainwashed! Ooh, but yards and yards of black is even hotter than yards and yards of red......
Quote from: "Ska_Kitti"Any plans for next year? Here's my list:

-Aion (Chrno Crusade)
-Demon Chrno (Chrno Crusade)
-Lulu (FFX)
-Black Mage (FF)

My husband and I decided that we should revive our old costumes since they were such a hit in 2003. : ) Look out for us.

Uuwaaaah, why wasn't anyone from Chrno this year? I was so lonely!

Anyway, um.... I'll probably do some sort of EGL costume next year, and I might go as Mr. 3 from One Piece. I'll definitely try to finish some sort of Naruto costume this year, too. I have somewhere around three that are in various degrees of completion. I might try to finish my DarkMercury costume this time around, too. Or maybe finish my MKR Hikaru. Aww, heck. I can never decide..... oh, and maybe I'll finish my Chrno costume PROPERLY so I can wear it again next year.
General Anime Chat / What's your first Anime?
June 01, 2004, 12:11:21 PM
Heck yeah, Anubis rocks.

First manga was Inuyasha, and first subbed anime was Escaflowne.

My VERY first anime, though, was Sailormoon. I had just come from my last day of eighth grade and was despressed, so I turn on the tv and there's this blue-haired chick being attacked by a monster, then something glowed on her forehead, a cat started talking and I was hooked. Took me a week to find it again, though, because I didn't know what it was! Didn't even check the time it was on. In fact, I didn't even know Sailormoon was the main character. Yes, I was a very stupid little eighth grader...

An after-series movie would be hard though! Now, if they re-did it with the same actors but followed more of the Maximum storyline, that'd be awesome.....

Quote from: "yOna"for a while i wanted to be a character designer for games.....then my dad said it was a stupid idea  :(

But that's NOT a stupid idea! In fact, I think it's a pretty good one, since there are plenty of ways to get your foot in that door without learning Japanese, or even leaving the country. The manga/anime thread is becoming more popular here, as is evidenced by Teen Titans and Powerpuff Girls, so it's not at all unlikely that you could work in that area.

Unfortunately, you probably wouldn't get paid very much, though.....
