The gathering was awesome this year! Can't wait to see what's in store for next year's gathering x3 I'll be showing up as Konan again and maybe even walk around in an SnJ Kakashi cosplay.

WOOT! [:

I don't know which cosplay I'll be bringing next year--I'm split between doing a new character (Karin? Konan?), or sticking with my three-year tradition of Hinata. x__X; lol We'll see. I'm looking forward to this as always, the Naruto gathering is always fun.

edit; Actually, I think I've already decided on a cosplay. Not disclosing it yet though. :P

I know it's a long shot, but I'm gonna try for Sasori inside of Hiruko for 2009. It's probably going to be a very hard cosplay to do, but I have plenty of time to get it together.

P.S. If I can get the outfit together I will have a surprise second cosplay

Ooooh! Fun times!

I cannot wait until the next Naruto gathering!! I may or may not cosplay for the gathering. It really depends on my time and resources by then. Plus, I may be getting in over my head with the number of cosplays I plan on doing already. ^.^;;

Although, I think I have a couple of friends who will be cosplaying as Uchiha Itachi and Sasuke again. I'll be sure to let you know ASAP; that or finally get them on the forum. (^___^) (v)

And now for my shameless advertisement; I hope you join in on the fun!!!: Calling All Cosplayers_FanimeCon 2009: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,10013.msg255958.html#msg255958

Is anybody good with photoshop or a good artist?  I think it would be really neat if someone could make a fun banner or mascot for the Fanime Naruto Gathering.  Something like a good group or iconic picture that says "Official Naruto Gathering Fanime 2009" or something like that.  Or a drawing of Naruto characters cosplaying as different characters with something that says "Fanime 2009".  Something fun like that so we could put it on the first page and maybe even in our signatures to advertise the gathering this year.

Just an idea.  Let me know if anyone has any good ideas.  I'll make a poor excuse for a banner later tonight and put it up so people have some idea what I'm talking about.

Keep those creative juices flowing into the summer!

First cosplay list is up.  Let me know if I made any mistakes. 

I'm formating it differently this year.  This format was suggested by someone else last year...but I'm bad and I forget who gets the credit.  Sorry!

I know it's early, so let me know if your cosplays change as the years go on.   ;D  This topic will probably stay pretty quiet for a few months.  I'll make sure to pop in from time to time and keep it up to date.

Have a great summer guys!

I'll add your sister the next time I update.  It'll be cool to have a Konohamaru!  I don't know if Konohamaru will fit into any specific group (I suppose we could do a student and teacher photo) but we'll have to wait and see what the group looks like closer to fanime.  If nothing else Konohamaru should definately be in the group photo and I'm sure a lot of people will want their pictures with Konohamaru (Third Hokage and Naruto's come to mind first).

I was the ShippudenTenten with the giant pillow scroll.  I posed with the Team Gai group.  I've been thinking about switching to Shippuden Hinata as everyone already knows me as Tenten and I've cosplayed her way too many times. DX

I dunno my plans yet but honestly I wanna work on Hinata and give Tenten a break.

We decided to go to the gathering together.

Updated!  People who are maybes are listed on the page with everyone else.  If you would like to me change your character or remove you in the future just let me know.   ;D

Based on the large number of Lolita Inspired Naruto Cosplayers I'm hearing from already I've created a sub category in the creative cosplay area for Lolita Inspired Naruto Cosplays.  If things continue this way we should take a Naruto-Lolita Group picture at the gathering.  It'll be neat to see all of your different interpretations.   :D

We still have 11 months until Fanime '09.  (That sounds so depressing.) However, I think now is a good time to start thinking of events and things we want to see happen at the Gathering this year.  We had some problems getting all of the events running last year, so lets really do something fun this year.  Thanks to fanime_lo-ve for offering to bring the CD player, that would be fantastic! 

As always PM me or IM me if you have any questions or if I made a mistake.  Keep posting on the thread too!

Later days!

Also, what material should I use to make the headband and pattern and where do I find the material needed?
Me personally, with the headband I have, I would use good old-fashioned scissors to get rid of most the material. Cut as close to the material as you can, or you can try to rip it off; I'm not sure how strongly it is attatched.
You do not really need a pattern, just a long rectanulgar piece of material. Which can be found at Beverly's, or Joanne's, or any other fabric/craft store. To reattch I would use fabric glue/adhesive. Possibly velcro if they have any adhesive kind, but it depends on how heavy the metal part is...>.>...
I don't know if this helps any, but good luck with whatever you decide to do! ^__^

Hi guys,

Sorry I havent' updated in a while.  There's been a lot going on here and I haven't had it in me to update the list.  Long story short I'm on a new medication for my anxiety and it's messing with my head.  I have a hard time keeping my concentration up enough to update the list. 

This should be short term, and I will update the list come hell or high water in the next week or so. 

I just figured I'd let everyone know that I have not forgotten this gathering.  I just want to make sure I do my best work for you all, and right now I can't do that.

Thank you for your patience.  Talk to you soon!

hey! can you please put me down as an anbu for Naruto gathering 2009? I'm not sure what village I'll be from yet, but I try tp figure that out by the end of the year. 2008 was so much fun, I just had t be part of next years gathering. I took a lot of pictures at the gathering... I can only hope that next year will be just as fun since I plan to actually be a part of all the action. = )

Sorry for the long wait.  We're updated again.  Wow!  40 cosplayers already!  This is going to be a great year for the Naruto Gathering!!   ;D

Druix - I put you under Shippuden even though you said you weren't sure which version of Sasuke you wanted to do.  Your avatar was Shippuden so I went with that.  Let me know if I need to change that later on. 

Lonelykangta - I put Aoba in the first group because I'm not familiar with the character or what part of the series he originates in.  Let me know if he should go somewhere else. 

We've got a really well rounded group of cosplayers this year.  I think this is going to be fantastic!

Guys, let's please be careful with the Glomp talk.  You can scare people off very easily. 

Please remember that it is courteous to ask the person you want to Glomp before you Glomp them.

No Glomping is not illegal.  You can Glomp as much as you like.  Just ask the person first.

My request was that you keep the Glomp talk down in here because a lot of people don't like to be glomped and I don't want to scare people off from the Gathering.

Oh and sadly, me and my friend itachi won't be doing the weird entrance thing. It would take a lot of time and to much distraction to the gathering, so yeah, we are just going there and be 'normal' :D

I'll also be walking around the con in younger deidara later and also rainbow mask tobi XDD Yay for randomness! Naruto Gathering ftw!

Not much to say this time around.  I plan to set up a survey for what time of day to hold the Gathering late next month or early October.  Let me know if you have any preferences in advance.

Also, if you have any ideas for events or games please feel free to bring them up.

Talk to you all soon!

My friend may not go to this gathering, she hasn't really told me anything just yet. Or even let me know her Cosplay for it.
Anyways, she's afraid of large groups, so I'm unsure if she's even going to be in it. But, I'll talk to her, since it was her idea that we go to the gathering. x3

Anyways, my cousin might be going to fanime and cosplay as a Naruto character. =P
Since my folks are uncertain if he's even going to come at all, don't put him on the list until we are sure. x3

THANKS!

I'll be at Fanime as Killer Bee, the eight tailed Jinchuuriki. Depending on when the gathering is I will attend if it doesn't conflict with anything else.
nice, i really like KB, such a fun character, plus if you talk to yourself BONUS! lol

OMG Naruto Caramelldansen? =o Must... go... @_X

Anyways, I need to take pictures with any and all Pimp Kakashis that go. x3 I love that cosplay idea. xD

And I don't mind being glomped, as long as you don't upset the skirt and/or high heels. x3
(That just gave away a lot of the cosplay, didn't it? xD)
What about Pimp Third Hokage?

Haha, bring it on. x] I'll be trying to take pictures with any and all pimps that I see. b^^d

And sorry for all this changing around, BrightHeart, but my friend wants to see if she can pull off a Loli Haku this time around. :3 Thank you soo much for keeping all this organized, I know it's difficult. xD

Hi Everyone!

I finally got a chance to update.  Sorry for such a long delay.  Things have been crazy around here, but that's not an excuse to put you guys off.  Hope you can forgive me.  I'll be more attentive from now on.

I'm very excited by this update.  Lots of great cosplays!  I'm getting excited to see the gathering this year.  :)

explosive_artist and blkriku, I really debated where to put your cosplays.  While they are part of the Shippuden story, they haven't shown up in the anime yet (that I'm aware of).  I chose to put you under Manga / Artbook.  If you would prefer that I move you to the Shippuden group let me know and I'll move you.   :)

My next step is to start the poll regarding WHEN the gathering should be.  I've heard rumors that Masquerade will be on Saturday again this year, so I don't want a late gathering since it might cause problems.  I also don't want it too early in the day because I want to make sure people are awake.  Really think about it before you vote, please.

Speaking of voting...  Far be it from me to push my politics on you.  However, if you are registered to vote on November 4th please do it!  So many people who can vote don't take the time.  Go out and vote if you can! 

Done with my soap box.  Keep talking guys!  Can't wait for Fanime this year!!

Ya, I don't think it right to put us under art since we are actual characters, maybe you can make a new category thats called future characters or something like that? or maybe you could split up manga and art. at this point it doesnt really matter. once more ppl sign up you can decide on it

Updated again!  YAY!!

We have our first event listed.  GomenNasaiPro had a great idea to get together a group of people for Formal Naruto Attire.  Trying to get people to pull something together and take our group to the Black and White Ball.  Awesome fun for everyone!  Join in!

I'm a little surprised at the poll results so far!  I had a lot of complaints last year that having the Gathering at noon was too early.  So far, noon is winning in the polls.  Hmm...goes to show you that I don't know everything.  :)  I'll keep the poll up for a couple of months so we get a lot of responses.  BSaphire usually doesn't even accept schedules until January.

Keep up the good work guys.  We're half way there, 6 months 'till Fanime.  (That makes me happy AND sad at the same time)

Later days!

We're updated again!

I'm really impressed with the list already!  We're halfway to Fanime and we already have 56 cosplayers.  You guys are the best!

We probably need to start looking at some more events...what would you guys like to do?  Something fun that we could all take part in.  I noticed there was no Naruto Twister last year, should someone bring that back?  I can bring BINGO back.  We have a Black and Wall Ball Gathering.  What sounds like fun for everyone?

Keep posting.  But please keep the glomp talk to a minimum, it tends to scare people off.  I'll talk to you guys later!

Later Days!

Hi All!

Updated again.  Sorry for the delay, the holidays are lots of fun but very time consuming.   ;D  I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season and a wonderful New Year.  2009 is going to be great! 

WOW we have a lot of cosplayers coming this year.  I'm really looking forward to seeing everyong.  :-)

I made an executive decision.  I decided that instead of putting the location up for a vote I'd keep it in the same place it has been for years.  We're going to meet at the fountains infront of the convention center on the Marriot side. 

When are we going to meet?  I will leave the poll up for a little longer if you have an opinion.  However, based on the number of complaints I had during the convention last year I might make another executive decision.  Right now there is a dead tie between noon and 1 p.m.  The gathering was at noon last year and a lot of people at the convention thought that was too early.  If the vote stays close I'm going to decide to move the gathering to 1 o'clock.  There is one possible problem with this.  It looks like Masquerade will be on the same day as our Gathering this year.  This could cut time close for people participating in the Masquerade.  I really do put a lot of thought into this and I want the time to be good for everyone.  Please take the opportunity to share your opinion now cause once I set the time I'm not going to change it unless Fanime or BSaphire ask me to.

Bai-MeiEr mentioned doing Caramel Dansen this year.  We had hoped to do it last year, but there were some technical issues.  I think it sounds like fun.  I've added it to the list of events, does anyone have a set of speakers we can use?  I can bring the IPod if someone has speakers.  I also thought it might be fun to play songs like Go! or other Naruto Theme songs.  Do we want to have a "Naruto Dance-off" event before, during or after the gathering?  Play some silly songs that could be theme songs for different characers and such....let me know what you all think.

Keep the ideas coming.  You guys really are teh best!  Thanks again to Myth for the great drawing for our gathering.   ;D

if my killer bee is done in time i will be there with speakers. i started bring a stereo to all my gatherings at AX and i am going to continue the tradition at fanime. it all depends if im done in time though which i should be but you never now. the stereo works pretty well so it could work just fine. but if you do caramel dansen i will sit it out. no offense to those who want to but i fell it is really tired and played out and i felt that way last year when everyone did it at ax everywhere, lol. but if im there i will let you use my stereo for it, but i will have my ipod to use

Eh, I would personally set it to noon, if it were me. :\ Of course, I can see why some people might think it's too early, but I do think it's better to give the people who are participating in the Masquerade more time to get ready and such. x)

By the way, how long does the gathering usually last, based on previous years' experiences and everything? Knowing that might help people make a decision more easily. ^^

Question: does the sexy no Jutsu Shippuden Naruto go under Shippuden or Creative cosplay?

Sexy no Jutsu appears in the series so it's not Creative cosplay.  However it shows up in both original and Shippuden, so unless it's specified what time line you're usuing it goes under "non timeline specific"  Hope that helps.

Post by: BrightHeart76 on January 14, 2009, 06:23:34 PM
I tried doing a post on cosplay.com last year and it was a total mess.  No one ever responded and I had to watch two different sites.  I'll try posting the official time and place, but I just don't have the time to keep up a list on cosplay.com.

That being said.  I ended the poll yesterday.  We have heard from 32 people and finally reached a majority.  The majority of votes was for 1:00 pm.  This is our official time.  YAY!  We have all the major details settled now.  All we have to do is figure out the events and finish getting our cosplays done.  :)

I'll update the list soon.  Have a good day everyone!

Hi Everyone!

Thanks to BShaphire I have turned in our request to be added to the official schedule.  I'll let you know if anything changes.  :-)

Also please make sure to read the changes to the first post.  Fanime will be taking some group photo's  at the begining of the Gathering this year.  If you do not want to be in a picture please step aside.  If you remain with the group when pictures are taken you are giving your concent to be photographed.  This warning is specific to Fanime photos, but it's a good reminder for all photos.  If you stand with the group people WILL take your picture, be aware.

That being said, please don't avoid the gathering if you're not a shutterbug.  If you would like to come join us to have fun and hang out with your fellow fans and cosplayers we LOVE to have you.  Just be careful to avoid the photo area. 

I will update the cosplay list this weekend.  roth14, your name sounds familiar...do I know what you're cosplaying as?

Some of the major craziness at work is done now.  I might actually be able to focus on my fanime preparations more now.  YAY!  :-D

Talk to you later!

Finally got the update done.  I really think this year is going to be exciting.  :)

Thank you to call_me_canada for helping to keep the cosplay.com thread together...you are fantastic!  Thank you to BSaphire for EVERYTHING she does getting us all organized and ready for the cosplay gatherings at Fanime. 

We have our official time and place set up and posted with BSaphire.  I'm getting a loud speaker in the next few weeks.  Things are really coming together.  :)

Events are our next hurdle.  The formal event / gathering at the Black and White ball is a go, check with GomenNasaiPro if you have any questions.  However, there is some question about Carameldansen.  Has this been overdone?  Or is it a classic?  Someone suggested Spin the Bottle.  Someone else suggested BACCHIKOI BACCHIKKOI BABY!  Spin the Bottle is fine, but I won't participate, I'm much older than most of you and I really don't want it to look like I'm hugging a minor...no offence.  I'm not familiar with BACCHIKOI BACCHIKKOI BABY!, can anyone provide me with a link?  Naruto Bingo is available too.  I still have all of the pieces here in a bag, so that's easy to do.

Vote in the poll, post your ideas and comments here.  This is everyone's gathering so everyone's ideas are welcome.  Please share your concerns, ideas and plans.  :D

Talk to you guys later!

I just wanted to let all the Naruto Peeps know that I took off Caramel Dansen for now until the time, location and game (s) are determined. Just pm me with the info when you have it.

Here is a link to Bacchikoi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=traIQuMqvxA&feature=related (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=traIQuMqvxA&feature=related). I know how you feel about spin the bottle, i think with that its too easy to mix up minors with non minors and that could lead to problems if not handled right. enjoy bacchikoi

Random thought #874629...do we want to have an informal picnic / lunch before the gathering?

So far BINGO is winning...happy to bring it with me.  What else do you guys want to do?  Gotta say I think Bacchikoi is awesome AND hillarious.  Do we wanna do it?

Speak your mind everyone!!!!  (Sigh..only 4 months till Fanime...it's time to start getting excited...at least a little bit.)

Currently Spin the Bottle is winning.  Not a problem.  However, as I've said before I will not take part in this event...if you guys want to do it someone needs to step forward to be the person to run the game and be responsible to make sure it runs smoothly, is planned out and has the needed supplies.  If you want to run this part of the gathering please PM me to let me know who's running what.

If everyone's fine with it I'd be happy to organize spin the bottle. But what kind of spin the bottle is it? hugs or kisses or what? Also that Bacchikoi thing looks cool I watched the video and WOW! I have to agree with Druix was my brain just violated?

I think spin the bottle should be a combination of both Hugs or kisses. People can choose which one they want to do.

It's totally your call.  Hugs or kisses is at your descrition as participants.  Just remember, if one of the people being hugged or kissed says no... you don't continue to try to hug or kiss them...just move on. 

I plan to leave the event poll up for a while longer, but if the question is still in the air once this poll is over I can put up a poll asking if people preffer hugs or kisses in spin the bottle if they choose to play.

I'm thinking it would be good to do BINGO before the gathering, Caramelldansen and/or Bacchikoi during the gather and Spin the Bottle at the end / after the gathering.  I'm also going to go get lunch after the gathering, if any of you would like to come along (and pay for your own lunch) to chat and enjoy some like minded ninja company you're more than welcome to come along.  :)

WOW...we have a lot going on this year don't we?  How do you guys feel about how things are coming along?

Ok I'll take care of spin the bottle :D I agree that BINGO should be before the gathering because last year there was a pretty good turnout when it was before. Is BINGO going to be in the same place as last year?

probably not.  It took a lot more time than I expected to get from Tabletop gaming down to the gathering.  As long as the weather holds I figure we can hold it down by the gathering.  I'll have a megaphone so that should work.  :)

We are up to date again.  Correct me if I'm wrong...but I believe we currently have the most cosplayers listed on ANY gathering thread for Fanime 2009.  Why?  Cause you guys are THE BEST!

I put up a tentative schedule for the gathering.  It is in the first post in purple.  This is only tentative and is subject to change at a whim...but it gives us an idea of what we're looking at.  What do you guys think?  Too much?  It's good?  Let me know what you're thinking.

Also, we currently do not have an Orochimaru.  I'm sure there will be at least one at the gathering, but if you know anyone who will be coming as the snake-freak  Orochimaru, let me know.  It would be heartbreaking if we don't have at least one picture with the Sanin.   :P

Looking at the Fanime.com page I see we only have 103 days until Fanime.  Holy Crumbs in a bucket!  Where did time go?  lol.

Hope you guys are starting to get excited.  How is everyone doing with prep for their cosplays?

Let me know if there's anything on you minds.  Any ideas, plans or thoughts.

@BrightHeart76:  Thanks for keeping us organized and up to date.  I appreciate it!  On the games poll, I am indifferent.

I was reviewing the list of Naruto cosplayers for this gathering.  I'm very surprised that no one has said that they're going as Naruto in sage mode from manga chapter 430 (and up).  It's been a few weeks since that chapter came out and I know there will be people with his new outfit at Fanime.

Guess what?  I made Naruto's new red-and-black-flame cloak.  I don't even intend to cosplay as Naruto.  Haha.  I just had to make that cloak.  ;D

Pictures and details on my journal: Toad Sage Naruto Cloak (http://shawnyw.livejournal.com/54920.html)

I'm excited for the next Naruto gathering, this year was so much fun!! (:
I'll be going as Genin (younger) Kiba again. I hope that little Hinata comes back because she was so adorable! *___*

Little Hinata has outgrown her costume.  She'll be back if I can find some time to make her a new one.

Um...ok...sometimes I don't catch onto things very quickly.  This may have been around for awhile.  However, if it's new to me it's gotta be new to someone else too.

Go to iTunes and do a search for Naruto...listen to the songs by Eddie Rath off the album Naruto 2009.  Seriously?  I can not stop laughing.  There is a very good chance that half way thru class tomorrow my students may hear me chanting "Itachi"...can't type...laughing too hard.    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Edit:  That came off wrong.  More power to anyone who is willing to express their fandom thru their art.  Be it cosplay, drawing, writing, sculpting or even singing.   I'm laughing because I was seriously caught off guard by this.  I never put Naruto together with rap in my head.  It's funny to listen to an anime put to a harder hip hop style.

**chirp chirp** hear the crickets chirping.  Seriously people.  We have the most cosplayers of any group on the boards only 12 pages of posts.  That's kinda scary.  TALK!! Please!

Possible subjects:

Regualr Naruto is almost done on Cartoon Network.  There is no word if they will pick up Shippuden yet.  What do you think is going to happen?

What photo groups should we have at the Gathering?  Teams?  Ninja groups?  Villages?  People who are still alive to this point in the manga?  People who have kicked the bucket to this point in the manga?  Bad guys?  Good guys?  Combine both parts of teh series?  Seperate Original series from Shippuden?  Ideas?  Is anyone practicing poses?  If so, do you need a Tsunade?  ;D

Why is unfair that I can find the Naruto Nikes for sale in my size, but there is no way on this planet I could afford them?

What do you want to happen at the gathering?

Does your pinky toe itch? 

Anything!  Just talk!  I'm begining to feel lonely.   :'(

Come on guys!  98 days till Fanime...let's get talking!!!

You're really bored, aren't you?   ;D

Okay.  I'll bite.  I don't usually post because I (a) don't want to bore people with random chatter, (b) don't want to spam, and (c) don't have much to say about my Naruto cosplay plans for Fanime since my Kurenai costume is already complete.

On Naruto and Cartoon Network: Don't know.  Don't care.  As a general rule, I can't stand dubs.  Therefore, I've never watched Naruto on CN.  I get my Naruto via fansubs.

On photo groups:

Teams?  Yes. 
Ninja groups?  ???  Aren't we all ninjas? 
Villages?  Sure. 
People who are still alive to this point in the manga?
  Okay. 
People who have kicked the bucket to this point in the manga?  Err... I'm not so sure about that.  Sounds morbid to me! 
Bad guys?  Okay. 
Good guys?  Okay.
Combine both parts of teh series?  I don't know.  I always find it odd to see pictures of original Naruto characters with Shippuuden characters together.
Seperate Original series from Shippuden?  Yes!
Ideas? 

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.  Maybe I'll just steal a few cosplayers away from the group to take some pictures in a quieter location.  I would also love to get a picture with all of the Rookie 9 and Team Gai together - with only one of each character.  I don't think I've ever seen that before.  It surprises me because the Rookies and Team Gai are featured together in so many of the anime's openings and endings.

Is anyone practicing poses?  If so, do you need a Tsunade?  Nope.  Sorry!

 :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!

At the gathering, I hope to meet a few Naruto fans who don't scare me.  (No offense intended.  I love Naruto.  I cosplay from Naruto.  And I even jokingly refer to myself as a "Narutard".  But...)  I've seen some Naruto fans who kind of freak me out.  I also hope to take a few pictures and have my own picture taken.  Then, if the group going out to lunch small, I'll join.  I don't like big group lunches.  Big groups take forever to get seated and served!

Does your pinky toe itch?  *laughs*  No.

To keep this post more or less Naruto Cosplay Related...

EDIT: I'm selling my Naruto Sage Cloak (http://shawnyw.livejournal.com/54920.html).  I'm offering it to someone on this forum first, because I said I would, but if he doesn't want it, then it's for sale.  He doesn't want it, so it's for SALE.

President's Day Sale at Joann's this weekend!  I'm going shopping.  ;D  I plan to pick up fabric and supplies to re-make my daughter's Little Hinata (http://dragonillusions.addr.com/cosplay/costume_hinata4.jpg) costume.  Little Hinata will be back, but Little Naruto (http://dragonillusions.addr.com/cosplay/costume_naruto1.jpg) won't.  Last year, my son was so little that he didn't want to be out in the convention center during the day.  (The big crowds upset him.)  Little Naruto didn't like all the attention, so he was only in costume for a very short while, before we went back to the hotel room to change him.

I want to make Hinata's dress (http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z227/MangekyuuSharingan22/bscap0056.jpg) from the Shippuden Drama CD, the one that she wears on her "date" with Naruto!  Does anyone besides me want that dress?  I'm such a Hinata fan.  I should call myself a Hinatard instead of a Narutard!

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

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

Sorry about not posting more, I've haven't had much to say. I have been planning on purchasing my costume, but I'm budgeting right now because my parents keep taking my money away to pay bills, and have yet to pay me back. (Groan)

: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.  :)

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".

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.  :)

Honestly I think where we go or what we eat depends on how many people decide to go for lunch.  Pizza is good, Pizza My Heart is just down the road a few blocks if we decide to do that.  Maybe we all go to differnt places to get take out and meet up for a picnic of sorts.  There are many choices available to us.


Um...one of the resons I usually don't post on Cosplay.com is because I have notoriously bad luck getting the page to load.  I decided to check and see if there were any new cosplayers listed on that site and I can't find the thread I created.  I can research my own post and read it...but I can't find the thread.  Does anyone else have any luck finding it?

In response to the food debate I found these links in another thread, they have lists of places to eat.  There are a lot of good places to eat near the convention center.   :D

Have a great week!  Keep chatting.  Fanime is just around the corner. 

Later Days!

ALSO: If you will be cosplaying as your Naruto character on Sunday please concider signing up for the Shonen Jump gathering.  BShaphire works so hard keeping us all organized every year and the Shonen Jump gathering is one of her babies.  She's really hoping for a big turn out and I think we can help with that.

Sorry for the double post.

The more I look at it the more I think it would be really cool to do Bacchikoi Baby.  It's a fun song and a silly dance.  I think it would distinguish us from the caramel dansen craze (which I'm afraid will become overdone after the last few years). 

The problem is I don't think everyone will know how to do the dance.  Solutions?  Anyone?  The only solutions I'm coming up with are really complicated. 

If you guys disagree with me, that's fine.  This is everyone's gathering.  If you guys think we shouldn't do Bacchikoi, then we don't do Bacchikoi.  If you want to do Caramel Dansen, then we do Caramel Dansen.  Simple as that.   :D

MODIFY

OOO...OOO....OOO  idea!  What if we scrap Naruto BINGO before the gathering and meet somewhere to practice the dance?  This gives us some solid time to practice and no time to forget.  :)  If we decide to make the Ninja Luncheon a picnic type lunch I can bring Naruto BINGO to the picnic and we can play while we eat.  Does that work?  Also, would anyone be ok to teach the dance...cause I can't dance for my life.

Either way the picnic will start pretty quick and we can either get food at the convention center or one of the near by places.  Depending on when your next gathering is, you still might be able to make it to lunch.   :D

EDIT: Now that I have calmed down and looked over where the parks are, they seem to be very far away on foot for the convention center. Wouldn't it be easier to just have a picnic on the small park area to the right of the Fairmont.?

You mean the little park on Market (kind of surrounded by the road) right?  The one kinda kitty cornered from the Marriot?  If so my map calls that Plaza De Cesar Chavez.  I think it's probably the better option because it will have more access to different food places. It's close to the action too.

Like I said, I'm not from the area I only have my little map to go by.  Let me know if there's a better place.   :D

Thank you I'll be cautious but the bar is far enough from the con most likely I'm bad with directions but if its the one I use to go to (forgot the name) then no because that one was too expensive. Hookah would be too much to set up at the con.They use to have smoking areas outside of the con.

:o Wow allot has happened since I last logged in.
Thank you lots for the food info that Hookah cafe sounds tempting wish I was good with directions lol.
Any body here interested in Hookah tobacco? its not as bad as cigarettes and its from Egypt.
 :D  I always wanted to go to Hookah while cosplaying lol (someday Yugioh lol)
 ;D

Any kind of tabacco at con is banned I think but don't take my word for it

Thank you I'll be cautious but the bar is far enough from the con most likely I'm bad with directions but if its the one I use to go to (forgot the name) then no because that one was too expensive. Hookah would be too much to set up at the con.They use to have smoking areas outside of the con.

You gotta take me to the bar with you! :o

I think its a great idea(that pesky tasty red sauce which is infamous for ruining costumes :D). I am just sad I may not be able to come becasue I am going to the Kuroshitsuji gathering after the Naruto one and where we eat may be too far for me to run back and change. T_T

I'm thinking we'll do a picnic.  Looking at the map I'm thinking Guadalupe River Park of Plaza De Cesar Chavez.  I don't live in the area, anyone have any idea which is better for a large group picnic?

Either way the picnic will start pretty quick and we can either get food at the convention center or one of the near by places.  Depending on when your next gathering is, you still might be able to make it to lunch.   :D

OMG THANK YOOOOUUU!!! I was so sad that I would miss this :D You just made my whole month better.


EDIT: Now that I have calmed down and looked over where the parks are, they seem to be very far away on foot for the convention center. Wouldn't it be easier to just have a picnic on the small park area to the right of the Fairmont.?


You mean the little park on Market (kind of surrounded by the road) right?  The one kinda kitty cornered from the Marriot?  If so my map calls that Plaza De Cesar Chavez.  I think it's probably the better option because it will have more access to different food places. It's close to the action too.

Like I said, I'm not from the area I only have my little map to go by.  Let me know if there's a better place.   :D

Oh okay then.  Sorry, the map on the internet mislead me. Well then that works :).

iKuraudo has made her final change for the gathering so please take off my other choices.

I'm doing an Akatsuki! Naruto Uzumaki cosplay.
My own version of it and please take off my Sasori/Kakashi and other ideas that may appear on the first page.
Thank YOU!

Perhaps we should have a rule about smoking? We can designate it to a specific area away from everyone else, but not too far away?
Title: Re: Naruto Gathering 2009
Post by: BrightHeart76 on March 07, 2009, 08:27:22 PM
I really don't know where all of the smoking questions came from.  I can honestly say I've never seen anyone smoking while in cosplay...I'd imagine that a fear of accidentally dropping burning ash onto a cosplay you have spend countless hours and money on would probably disuade anyone from trying. 

I'm dread to create a rule saying "no smoking" because the picnic is outdoors and it seems like something we could work with if someone was smoking.  Smokers are people too, if their smoke is bothering you please let them know and work out a solution with them.  I'm sure most people would rather have a rational conversation with you than simply be banned.  Is this unrealistic?

Also, in regard to the question about how the picnic would work.  I imagine everyone would bring their own food.  I had entertained the idea of brining some loaves of bread, meat, cheese, mayo and mustard so everyone could make sandwiches.  However, I really don't want something to go wrong and someone get sick because of it or be upset for some reason.  Probably best if we all bring our own food.  If you'd like to bring more to share, more power to you.  :D

As always, this is not my gathering.  It's our gathering.  If you guys want to make rules or set something up just let me know.  I'm just here to help organize things and keep us "official" with the boards.   :D

I've been having nightmares that for one reason or another I miss Fanime this year.  Seriously, I've had like 6 nightmares where I realize that it's 3 o'clock on the Saturday of Fanime and I'm still sitting at home (in Reno) and I just now realized that I forgot all about Fanime.  Anyone else have Fanime based anxieties?  Or am I just special.  lol.

Yes.  I just finished little Hinata's Shippuuden jacket!  Pictures here (http://shawnyw.livejournal.com/57677.html).  The rest of the costume still needs to be put together, but the hard part is done.  :)

I have been getting prizes together for Naruto BINGO.  I figure we'll play at the picnic.  Or would you rather play before the Gathering?

How is everyone doing with their cosplay?  Feel like you're on track?

Where are we with the planning for Spin the Bottle?  Any updates?  Let me know.

Keep up the fun guys!  See 'ya in a couple of months!  ;D

The reason I put "others" in is because after the main gathering last year there was a large group who wanted to do "yaoi" pictures, something I didn't anticipate.  I can't hope to think of every special group that will show up for the gathering, so I'm just leaving space for other groups.

Although if anyone is curious we ACTUALLY have our gatherings on different days because these are the 2 biggest gatherings (usually) and it works better if they're split up.  Also, a lot of Bleach cosplayers are also Naruto cosplayers and vice versa.
 
I think a little anime war is fun, good for morale.  Pirates vs. Ninja's is getting a little tired...Naruto vs. Bleach sounds like a good battle to take up.  lol.   ;D  Go ahead, bring your Bleachie self to the Naruto gathering...we'll show you what a REAL cosplay event looks like.  lol.

Time Skip Lee has a vest on, much like what Gai and Kakashi wears. Regular Lee doesn't. ^^

Oops.  Goofed up the post on my first try.  Fixed now.

Welcome to April everyone.  Fanime is coming up fast!  YAY!

The list is updated again, 79 cosplayers on the list.  WOW!  I really think we're going to hit 100 at the gathering this year, should be ginormous!

Let me know if there's anything on your mind for the Gathering.  Prizes have started to come in for BINGO. 

Have a great day!

I was thinking that if there's a Pein at the gathering, I could a referance to Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan and scream out Pein's name, just like how Kirk screamed out Khan's name.

Turns out I won't be able to make it to the gathering.
My wig isn't going to arrive in time, so I'm sorry!

Maybe next time.

This all sounds very fun, but I'm not sure I'll be able to stay for the whole picnic, since my pokemon gathering will probably be shortly after, and I gotta do a costume change. XD Still won't miss this for the world though.  >_> I just hope my two friends can go.

Oh, and another of my friends is coming. ^-^ For sure. So I'll either be Sakura or Tenten, and she'll be whichever I don't use xD I'm gonna probably be TenTen, since my hair will not need a wig. Anyways, I'll so be there. xD

Maybe I'll come... and invade you with my BLEACH AWESOMENESS ;D BWHAHAHAHAHA
Seriously this is the reason why the Naruto and Bleach gathering are on seperate days @ Fanime
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h91ZZbx1RHc



LOL.  Very cute. 

Although if anyone is curious we ACTUALLY have our gatherings on different days because these are the 2 biggest gatherings (usually) and it works better if they're split up.  Also, a lot of Bleach cosplayers are also Naruto cosplayers and vice versa.
 
I think a little anime war is fun, good for morale.  Pirates vs. Ninja's is getting a little tired...Naruto vs. Bleach sounds like a good battle to take up.  lol.   ;D  Go ahead, bring your Bleachie self to the Naruto gathering...we'll show you what a REAL cosplay event looks like.  lol. (actually the Bleach Gathering is fun too...I'm just talking smack to be silly)
Naw I was JK I love Bleach and Naruto the same. I getting a Temari costume :)



i have a favorite line said by Uncle Yo! that describes bleach perfectly:   

in the anime world, the ninja will win ya, the mecha's will wreck ya, and for everyone else "theirs bleach" (said with a disgusted tone).   

if anyone dosen't know uncle yo, please look him up on youtube, he is an otaku stand up comedian.

It's up to you whether we do Spin the Bottle or not.  I need you to decide when and where it will be so you can let me know and I can post it.  I would think you'll need a bottle or some kind of spinner, but I can't think of any other supplies you would need.

Just wondering, do you have any advice as to where to get a good cheap cosplay sword? The one in your sig picture looks great.
Cause I have most everything for my cosplay, but all the swords I can find are either real sharp steel swords, really expensive, or both. xD

We're updated on the main page.  I am AMAZED at the number or cosplayers and the variety.  You guys rock!!

I think there is a good chance that we might hit the 100 cosplayer mark.  If we get a lot of people show up who haven't posted here, we'll do it.  How awesome would that be?

YAY!

I still need to get or make a better headband than the one I've currently got (which is really low-quality, I'm afraid) and fix a few more details, but you can probably count on me being there.

Hi All!

We're updated again.  You are all wonderful!!  I'm so excited about Fanime this year, and just as excited about our gathering.   ;D

Kites-kun, I put you down as a maybe for both Tobi and Sasori.  Let me know if you decide which one.

There are some great videos for the Bachikoi dance on youtube if you'd like to watch them...not sure if we're still doing that or not.

sasukeuchiha92 had a great idea to re-enact some scenes from Naruto.  I think it's a great idea.  I can offer myself as Lady Tsunade if anyone needs her.  Best to find the people in the scene you want to re-enact and meet up with them at the convention to practice.  I'm thinking that in the interest of time it would probably be best to do the re-enactments at the picnic.  What do you guys think?

See you all soon!

@ sasukeuchiha92 ~ I think it's fine to have Spin the Bottle at the picnic.  You'll need to figure out the logistics and all.  Perhaps a Twister type spinner would work better than a bottle at this location. 

Wow, between the gathering, the picnic with BINGO, Scene re-enactments and Spin the Bottle and the Black and White Ball event this is going to be a busy year for Naruto people!  I'm looking so forward to it!  ;D

I'm all for Bacchikoi; got the full version on my iPod, though my speakers for it aren't all that great, but it's fun anyways. Bacchikoi, bacchikoi, bei-bee~

Also, there's not too many fights with Kakuzu that can be done without the multiple heart mask things moving about, but any fights with him that are needed, I can do. My costume also involves using wires as his crazy rip-out-your-heart stitches, if needed, although seeing as they are wires, safety is the top priority with them.

Hi everyone!

We're updated again.  We have 85 cosplayers on the board.  This year is going to be amazing!!

I've got the Fanime jitters.  I'm very excited to get to Fanime this year.  I hope you guys are too.  It's going to be a great year.  Lots of fun to be had by all.   ;D

GAH! DX
okay, I have my Hinata Shippuden cosplay done, BUT, was planning on being in the pirate vs ninja shoot as a PIRATE...
and that shoot is at 12 noon right before the naruto gathering which is at 1 pm. T_T
...do you think it would be okay if i stayed for a little bit at the pirate vs ninja shoot then changed reeeeally fast to go to the naruto gathering late?

That's pretty much what I plan on doing, 100buttons, and I think it should work out for those of us who are attending both. The ninja vs pirates shoot shouldn't take any more than 45 minutes, if I recall from last year correctly, so there should still be time for people who are pirates at the shoot to switch to ninjas before the Naruto gathering.

At least I hope so... otherwise I might end up looking like Straw Hat Luffy in an Akatsuki robe. Gum Gum no Jutsu?

This is going to be a TIGHT fit.  The thing is unlike previous years when we could delay the big group photo for people who are changing to give them a few extra minutes.  This year Fanime is taking a big "official" group photo at the very beginning.  I'd hate for you guys to miss that.  Please try to make sure you have enough time.  I'd hate to miss you in the group photo.

I updated again today.  Xemnass' group puts our list over the 90 cosplayers mark!  I'm so excited.  I think this year is going to be HUGE!!!  I'll be super excited if we get 100 or more cosplayers on the list.  It's going to be amazing to see how many cosplayers will be at the Gathering!!   ;D

If worse comes to worse, I'll leave the Ninjas vs Pirates shoot early to run back to my room, but I'm a decent sprinter when I put my mind to it, so as long as I give myself fifteen minutes I should be able to make it on time. A few of the details, like Kakuzu's stitching and the wires I mentioned, I may have to deal with while there, but it'll all work out.

Just to be safe, though, I suggest a few trial runs. Figure out the distance between the two gatherings and hotel room, find out how long it takes to run that distance, add the time it takes to switch costumes, and a few minutes for the elevator. Or, if you're no good at math, like me, cross your fingers.

Well I suppose I should say that you should support your Naruto friends by being a Ninja at the Ninja's vs. Pirates.  But that's silly, be what you want to be.  (I guess we could create a new Ninja / Pirate Hybrid...a Ninrate)

I'd probably guess that the best thing would be to figure out how long it takes for you to change.  How long it takes for you to get to and from your room on a busy day.  Then you can figure out when you need to leave. 

If your cosplays are similar enough you could see if you can bring the pieces you need to change and save yourself the stress of getting to and from your room.

Whoa. It's only a few weeks left. o_o I don't know if i should be happy Fanime's here, or sad that I waited to get money, and some other items for cosplay until the last minute. xD

Well, I'll be sure to make this gathering, even though From Saturday-Sunday, I have a few gatherings each day, so costume changes will be used, So I may be just a bit late. Unfortunately, I don't know if my Sasuke can come. She's having problems with grades, so she may be grounded from doing things fun like Fanime. My Sakura may be to. Oh well. I can never be sure. xD Sorry everything keeps changing with me. :D

I'm glad to see all of the new faces coming to the gathering this year, and so happy to see a lot of people returning.  It's going to be fantastic!!!!

ruby19_4 asked about the location of the picnic.  There is a park across the street from the Marriot and the Fairmont.  We'll be there.  If it helps I'm going to run up to my hotel room once the gathering thins out so I can get lunch.  When I come back down I can lead a group of Naruto people over to the picnic area.  Does that sound like a good idea to you?

I'll see you all soon!!!

Ok guys...here's the challenge.

I just added my bestfriend to the list, that brings us up to 96 cosplayers on the Gathering list.  This is dangerously close to 100...and for some reason I REALLY want to have 100 or more cosplayers on our list. 

If we reach 100 or more people on the list by Fanime I will bring candy.  It's all I can afford, sorry.  So if you know someone who's going to cosplay for Naruto but hasn't posted yet....now is the time to get them to post!  I will update this list for the last time on Tuesday May 10th...possibly the 11th but I can't promise that.  After that I will not have constant access to my computer or I will be AT Fanime and not able to go get candy.

That is all.

Oh that's pretty much Guaranteed.  I feel comfortable saying that I expect well over 100 cosplayers at the gathering.  However, my silly goal is 100 or more on the list.  We have 2 more to add since I last updated, just 2 more and I bring candy.  :)

Oh, and don't worry about the dancing part.  I never make it to the lessons either.  While there's a lot of real dancing going on, I usually find a group of people just doing silly dancing, you'll be fine.   ;D

Candy Sounds Amazing. And this is totally random, but Okage-Sama De~ Productions may be making like business cards for people who take our photo cause we never find photos of us o.0 Would anyone be willing to send us the photos they take if we give our email out or something?

That was random XD But I wanted an opinion before I use paper and ink to make them.
AND! this gathering sounds totally amazing and so does candy! I love M&Ms!

I missed an Aqua Teen Hunger Force reference!? How can this be!? I must redouble my training.

Anyways, I made some long-needed fixes to my Kakuzu costume today. Made a better-looking headband, even though I may have messed up a little on the image and tidied it up a little. The face mask also had a habit of falling off the bridge of my nose, so I hiked it up to avoid that, at the cost of getting hot glue on my hand. There are still some issues I'm having with it, but 'twill suffice. Here's a headshot, if you're interested. (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v149/Eliteslayer/My%20cosplay%20pics/Photo9.jpg)

I'm having a little trouble with the wires; can't get them to stay right without the robe, but I should have that dealt with too.

Less than a week left! Oh, and hooray for candy!

Gah, I just realized that I won't be able to make it to the gathering, because my sister's graduation is on Saturday and I really can't miss that. Sorry for the short notice. x3 I'll definitely be looking for photos though; this is definitely going to be such a great event.

I'll most likely be walking around the con on Sunday though, so feel free to hug or glomp me (watching out for the heels, of course xD) if you see me. (:

Cool...but I"m confused.  Are you doing Sakur, Shikamaru and Kakashi?  Or do you know a couple of people doing it?  If it's just you, how would you like me to list you?

Thanks.  :)

Hey, Brightheart-sama :D If you want, I'll see if I have any leftover candy from my gathering, which is about an hour or two before this one, but i'll be there in my Tenten costume. XD I'll be doing a trivia and stuff for mine, but I might get too much candy for prizes, I might have leftovers, so if you want, I can bring whatever is left over if any to the Naruto gathering. XD  Which there should be. I'm not sure on what candy yet. I'm going Fanime shopping soon with my mom, since she said she'll get some stuff for me ^_^  I'll be happy to help, since this is a very large gathering and more people might come than what we expect.

Hi! I'm back!
Okay, so I have good news and bad news
Good news-I'll be there, as Haku
Bad news-Junior year ate me alive, and left me not time to do a new cosplay or anything, especially with all the things I've been doing.
But! I still have my old cosplay, so no worries. Guess that the new improved Haku cosplay will have to wait. Oh well. Looking forward to seeing you all there! Later

I've seen A LOT of Naruto cosplays in the halls, tomorrow is going to be FANTASTIC! 

Just a reminder, try to be to the gathering ON TIME the official group photo is first!  If you have any questions for me I will be in Tsunade cosplay (same from last year) with a bullhorn in hand and an iPod with speakers playing Naruto music. 

Dont' forget to come to the picnic afterward at the park across from the Fairmont.

See y'all soon.  Well...those of you I haven't already seen here at Fanime.  For them I guess it's Seen y'all soon, see ya again shortly.   ;D

Well, that was fun. Twas the debut of my Kakuzu costume (I was the one with wires on my right arm) and I think it came out pretty well. I had a great time, can't wait to see any pics from it.
Title: Re: Naruto Gathering 2009
Post by: BrightHeart76 on May 25, 2009, 08:09:50 PM
Sigh...my first chance to really sit down in days.  Been having too much fun to stop.   ;D

The gathering was a BLAST!  Sorry for the initial false start, but we got everything right on the second try.  There were so many Naruto fans!  I was shocked!!

What a surprise to get recognition from the convention!!  What a GIANT surprise when Momoi came out to have her picture taken with the cosplayers at the end of our gathering!!!!  I was floored!  I hope you all were able to be included in that picture! 

The picnic was wonderful!  I was a few minutes late showing up (the gathering went a lot longer than I expected).  I was so happy to see people waiting with food.  Thank you Kakashi for letting us use your giant book of naughtiness for our table.  :)

This year has been AMAZING.  The gathering was great, the masquerade was fantastic.  I have to toot my own horn a bit, I was even able to get a ticket to exclusive party with Yagama-san and all of the guests, you should see my autograph collection!! 

Huge thanks to BSaphire, she has put in so much work for all of us cosplayers.  Without her a lot of the great things about this year would have never happened.  Be sure to thank her.  Major thanks to all of you who came and supported your fellow cosplayers and fans.  You are all a bright spot in my life, and I am ever so greatful for each of you.

I'll post pictures after I get home (I'm still at the Hilton).  We'll start planning 2010 shortly.   ;D

Wow...I never posted in here. Oops!

I was the Orochimaru with the Sasuke action figure; I suppose I should've introduced myself properly before, but I forgot to check the gatherings forums.

I wanted to make a request that next year there be a group shot of Sound ninja; it was a little crazy at the gathering so I'm sure it was hard to remember, but my poor Kabuto-kun was feeling lonely.

Other than that, though, it was great to see everybody, and it was double amazing that we got to take a picture with Momoi Halko in her Anise costume!

This is a link to my photobucket account.  I haven't really organized anything yet...so you'll have to look thru the first several pages for Fanime pictures.

Ted the Penguin should be in most of the pictures...it's a long story.

The person who I had taking pictures of teh gathering should be posting in the next few days, but there are some gathering and picnic photos in here.

Have fun!

Does anyone have pictures of GaySas/Sasgay/Saskura/Super Sasuke? LOL There were more names but I don't remember all of the names I got lolz!

Thanks BrightHeart for putting this together and for teaching and letting me use the bullhorn. That was a huge help with my gathering! ;D

This is the slide show I put together to show my local friends all of the fanime fun. 

Naruto Gathering starts at about 6 minutes 49 seconds.  There are a couple of different pictures in there.

I'll be coming back next year as well. I'll probably bring Haku back and also I'm going to be trying for Hinata.  Hopefully I'll have Haku's mask by then too.  One more I thought about doing was Gaara.  Most likely his first outfit that he wore to the Chunin exams.  Not sure, we'll have to see. ^^

A quote from Wikipedia (bold added by me) :

"Spirit gum is an adhesive, made mostly of SDA Alcohol 35A (the solvent, or "spirit") and resin (the adhesive, or "gum"), used for affixing prosthetic applications. It has been known to cause allergies in some people, but nevertheless remains in wide use. Spirit gum is also used as a theatrical adhesive to apply wigs, beards, and other costume prosthetics. It is also used in the cosmetic industry to adhere lacefront wigs, which are wigs that are made out of lace that give an appearance that the hair is coming out of the head. It is also used in LARPing and Cosplaying to adhere things to one's body, such as gems and ear tips."

Glad to be of help!   ;D

The following is a rant containing spoilers from the recent manga.  Please don't scroll over the black bars unless you know what has happened or don't care about spoilers.

WHAT THE H. E. DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS WAS THAT?  Everything is fine and dandy except oops, Tsunade's in a coma so we're going to replace her with some dorkwad out to destroy everything Naruto just agreed to work on in the last issue?  You know the whole "peace" thing...yeah Danzo is not going to be a fan of that idea.  I admit that I'm partial to Tsunade, one of the reasons I cosplay as her, but this is just low!  Just saying, unless something really foul happens to Danzo I'm not having a Hokage picture shoot at the Gathering next year...cause right now I'm hating the 6th Hokage...a lot.

OK..now that I have that out of my system.  Hope everyone is recovering well from Fanime 2009.  What are you guys doing with your postcon energy?  Today was my first day of summer break, so I spent the day filling out job applications.  :)

Title: Re: Naruto Gathering 2010
Post by: Eliteslayer on June 06, 2009, 01:16:28 AM
I had a pretty similar reaction to the chapter, although I'm glad to see that at the very least, he didn't forget about a few characters from before this whole disastrous arc started. (Not too fond of how this whole arc's been going, but that's just me.)

It seems Konoha's leaders are decided thusly:
One guy: I nominate this person.
Everyone else: We agree.
Daimyo: Okay, he can be Hokage.
Danzo: No fair, I wanted to be Hokage.
Daimyo: Oh, okay, you can do it then.
Danzo: Yay.
Readers: Lame.


But at least the anime fillers are finally over.

Anyways, I've just been dealing with college and approaching finals since returning from Fanime. So much to do, so little motivation. Got a major case of the "Blehs," if that makes any sense. Hope everyone else is doing well.

(And, just to be clear, I have every intent on returning to Fanime 2010 as Kakuzu again, as long as I don't make a new costume or something happens to make me completely give up on the series before then. Seems unlikely, so you can expect me to be there.)

Feeling much better.  My asthma got really out of control after Fanime, finally feeling a bit better.  Thanks for your patience.   ;D

I've updated the list.  We're up to 10 people already, not a bad start if I do say so myself. 

My surprise is in the works, but we probably won't have it ready for a few months...wait and see.  :D

Keep talking, looking forward to a great summer!

I'm actually pretty good about keeping up to date with Pre-Registration and hotel reservations.  I'm responsible for making sure my whole group gets set as early as possible and as soon as possible every year.  I can post on here when things open up if you all are interested. 

I'll add you guys to list next time I update.  Is Panda going to do Temari or GothLoli Sakura at the Gathering?  I don't want to post her twice.  If she changes her mind later on I can always change it. 

Happy to have you!  Here's to another awesome year of Fanime with another amazing Naruto Gathering!  (We shouldn't have to contend with the "witnesses" this year!!!)

sasukeuchiha92 ~ PTS can mean Post Time Skip or Pre Time Skip.  Which do you plan to be?  I would usually think you mean Post Time Skip, but your cosplay the last few years has been Pre Time Skip. Help!  Also, is Super Sasuke a different person?  Or do you want me to put you down as Super Sasuke in the original ideas area?  I'm still not feeling 100%, excuse my confusion.

Hope all is going well for you guys.  Keep chatting!  Go get some sun this weekend!

Pre-Time Skip is the Sasuke I'll be. Super Sasuke is different by how it's my normal cosplay just with a "Hurricane" cape. I tested out Super Sasuke this year and some people have messaged me on other accounts that I have on different websites and asked if I'm doing that again. I'm going to try and do something different but for now just put me for Pre Time Skip Sasuke and then Super Sasuke in the original ideas area.  ;D

2009 was my first cosplaying at fanime and my friend Rosendo and I only started our costumes only a month before fanime so this next year they should be fine tuned I'm going to see if i can get some real metal plating for my Choji shippuden costume and we both have to do work with wigs but we should be there as Choji and Shikamaru from Shippuden.

Hi Guys! 

We're updated again.  Nineteen people on the list already!  What a great start.   ;D

I'll leave the current poll up for a few more days before I start the new one to vote about a possible new thread title.  Thing is we are currently 50% for a change 50% against a change.  Keep voting, make your opinions known.

Honestly we have a lot of cosplayers every year who are cosplaying characters who have moved onto the Great Ninja Beyond.  A great example is the continued popularity of Zabuza and Haku.  They died in the first 20 episodes, but they're with us every year...and we love them for it.  It's always kinda fun to see the people who don't realize that they're dead yet, it's like zombie cosplay.  At least in my demented mind.  I've even proposed a photo group at the Naruto gathering for dead characters...but everyone seems to think that's morbid.  They're probably right.

Also, be careful of spoilers.  I don't know if this is really a spoiler, it's been discussed before.  However, when in doubt use the spoiler option so you don't accidentally destroy something for a fellow fan.  :D

Why not instead of a group of all the dead characters, why not a shot with all the dead characters lying dead on the ground? Or is that even more morbid? I dunno, at AX a bunch of Akatsuki cosplayers (myself included) were lying down in the shade to escape the sun, and it turned out to mostly be the dead ones, so eventually we all just acted dead. It was oddly fun. Just a thought.

I've gone to the Naruto Gathering as Kurenai two years in a row.  So for 2010, I'm planning to do something different. :)

Please put me down as Hinata, Shippu! Konoha Gakuen Den (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1_2AsZQERQ) "date" dress version.  Haha.  It's so obscure!  I don't think you even have a category for it... unless it falls under the Manga/Artbook Specific section?

Click for Hinata, Shippu! Konoha Gakuen Den "date" dress pictures. (http://shawnyw.livejournal.com/69195.html)

And just for kicks... Double Hinata Fun!

I don't know if I'll bring my daughter to the gathering next year.  It's not that much fun for her.
Title: Re: Naruto Gathering 2010
Post by: BrightHeart76 on July 31, 2009, 12:20:47 PM
LOL.  I keep thinking back to the year that a certain character died in the manga shortly before fanime.  The person cosplaying that character wore a sign around their neck at the Naruto Gathering stating that they were not dead...just on vacation.  I remember a few people asking, "is (name of character) dead?"  It was funny.

Shawny as always, I am totally impressed and envious of your sewing skills.  That is an AMAZING dress!!  It's from the closing for part of Shippuden right?  I must admit I'm way behind on Shippuden.

We would be sad to miss your daughter, but I can totally understand that it's not a lot of fun for someone so young.  I always get a little worried when you guys get mobbed every year with everyone wanting her picture.  We'd be sad to miss her, but it's always great to have you and your awesome sewing skills at the Gathering.  There's always room for her if she decides on Fanime Saturday that she wants to come, no need to rush to decide.  :)

^  Thank you!  :D

Yes.  Shippu! Konoha Gakuen Den (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1_2AsZQERQ) is basically an expanded version of the 2nd Shippuden ending (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2U2P6vRBTU).  Haha.  I'm behind on Shippuden, too.  Too many fillers!  With few exceptions, I don't like watching fillers.

Yeah.  She's so young that the gathering is kind of boring for her, especially since she doesn't even know what Naruto is!  :P  Haha.  She doesn't get to watch stuff like Naruto until she's older!  Right now, the anime she watches is stuff like Kiki's Delivery Service - which she loves, btw.  I think I'll leave it up to her to decide if she wants to come with me to the gathering.

People have been very nice and respectful when they ask for pictures of her.  :)

Hi Again!

We're updated.  Twenty cosplayers so far.  Not bad seeing as it's just now August.  Still almost 10 months until Fanime.  Good Gravy that sounds like such a long time... it's so sad.  :'(

I put up the poll about the thread title.  Vote early, vote often.  I'll probably give it a week or two before I tally the votes and decide on our official thread title.  I almost included a joke title, "Flourescent Ninjas of Doom.  Naurto Gathering 2010"...but didn't want to offend anyone with my silly joke. 

By the request of BSaphire we are not going to set up an official time for this year's gathering until further notice.  She has something in mind and we're going to wait and see what she can pull out of her bag of tricks.  As always, if you guys ever feel greatful for how smoothly the gatherings go at Fanime, you need to thank B it's her and her staff that make the magic happen.  She rocks...she rocks hard...she rocks like a boulder.  ::)  (Can anyone tell that I'm on pain killers?  'Cause even in my head I'm sounding like a total weirdo).

Keep enjoying that sunshine!  Summer is at it's prime!  I'm just trying to avoid the Hot August Nights craziness that is Reno this week. 

Later Days!

In all seriousness Burning Man is a big thing down here.  A lot of the teachers at the school where I work go every year.  It's always fun to see the crazy cars going thru town on their way to Burning Man.  Even funnier to see them all on their way back when they're covered in what is lovingly called "playa dust".

Hi Guys!

We're updated again.  Things are quiet on the thread lately, I think things will probably pick up more as Shippuden comes out on DVD.  Only time will tell.   So far we have 22 cosplayers, not bad for 9 months before Fanime.   :D

There's a tie on the vote for the thread title right now, so I'll leave the poll up for a little while longer.  If you haven't voted already, make your voice heard.  :D

Everything seems to be going well.  I got a promotion at work, so I've been busy.  I'll update more often as we come closer to Fanime.  Keep posting, keep chatting.  I hope everyone is healthy and happy!

We're up to 25 cosplayers, not bad at all.  Lets keep it going!

Events this year.  I definately want to do the picnic again.  Does anyone else have ideas?

Also, I plan to discuss it with BSaphire, but what do you guys think about asking for a longer time slot for our photo shoot?  Half an hour was too short last year, we missed a lot of people.  Do you guys have any other suggestions?  Let me know.

Oh yeah...official thread title is now "With the Will of Fire!  Naruto Gathering 2010!"  Awesome job guys!

To answer the photo shoot question, we defiantly needs more time. No ifs, ands, or buts. As for the picnic I was wondering if at the end of the photo shoot someone could announce when it will start with the megaphone (if we still have it). Because by the time i found it, it was almost over.  :'(
Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010!
Post by: BrightHeart76 on October 02, 2009, 08:42:07 PM
OK.  My first reaction to the Naruto on Disney thing was to literally beat my head onto my desk at work.  But on further examination, this isn't a bad thing.  Think about it.  Disney has a RIDICULOUSLY large audience.  This brings Naruto to even more people.  Disney's recent connections with anime haven't been bad either.  Aside from licencing the Studio Ghibli films here in the States they also aired "Oban Star Racers" (admitedly half French half Japanese, but still a very good show) without a lot of editing.  There is hope.

I mean seriously, it's not like they're going to make Sakura a Disney princess or have Winnie the Pooh make a cameo appearance.  It will still be Naruto.  The worst they can do is edit the show badly, which would suck but we'd still have episodes on the web and the DVD's.

With the Disney audience I'm willing to bet the gathering this year will be HUGE!!!!  YAY!   ;D

I'm going to write to BSaphire as soon as I post this and ask about extending our time for next year.  I'll let you guys know as soon as I know.  

I have no problem announcing the picnic at the end of the photo shoot.  I'll have better, hopefully louder megaphone next year.  The one this year just did me no good.  I did kind of announce the picnic last year, but that was cut short when I got involved in the impromptu photo shoot for the Guest of Honor.  Picnic will be much smoother this year, I promise.

What else do you guys want to do?  Anything?  

Have a good evening everyone!

Location of the picnic, i hope to get along with everyone and hope to find and meet new people. I was there only Friday last year then realized after i left i literally said "OMG i wish i wasn't broke cuz i want to stay the entire time."
now even as it is months away im still psyched for it. I going to be there the entire weekend and will hope to hang out with a lot of people.
Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010!
Post by: BrightHeart76 on October 02, 2009, 10:37:56 PM
LOL.  With a group this large you're bound to make friends.  It's actually a really great atmosphere at the gathering...a whole bunch of people (over 100 last year) who automatically have something to talk about.  Welcome to our merry group!  This year we shouldn't even have the protesters to deal with.  YAY!

Location of the picnic.  I'm going to go out on a limb and decide myself instead of putting it up for a vote.  Same place as last year.  There's a park just diagonal from the convention center.  It faces the Tech Museum, the Fairmont and kind of points at the Marriot.  Last year we all kind of dropped in the first large open space and ate and played bingo.  It was nice.  :D  Same place this coming year.  I'll post a map later.  I gave the BINGO game away, so feel free to bring something to play. 

Here's the new poll question for everyone.  Should the picnic be potluck or bring your own?  Bonus of potluck is we all get to share something new.  The down side of potluck is if a lot of people don't bring food we're all going to be hungry.   We could alway set it up as Bring your own, but feel free to bring extra if you like.  What do you guys think? 
Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010!
Post by: roth14 on October 03, 2009, 03:37:06 PM
I think it should be recommended to bring your own. Unless we have a list of who will bring what. Like the Kuroshitsuji Picnic has. And thank about the megaphone. :)

Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010!
Post by: BrightHeart76 on October 04, 2009, 11:27:55 AM
I'd recommend reserving your room as soon as they open them up.  The fanime rooms have usually been opened sometime in December or January in the past, I don't know when they'll open up this year.  Keep your eyes on the fanime main page for updates on that.  Those rooms have good rates for the closest hotels and they go fast.  It doesn't cost to reserve your room, you just need a credit card to guarantee the room.  I usually stay at the Hilton, it's nice to be in one of the hotels attached to the convention center.  That is my opinion at least.  :D

Possible Scenario #1: "Catch Naruto Shippuuden @ 5PM, now after Miley Cyrus!"

Possible Scenario #2: *Disney realizes most American kids don't know Japanese and replace the opening Japanese songs with the Jonas Brothers.*

Post by: Eliteslayer on October 13, 2009, 04:51:03 PM
Viz is still doing the dubbing of Shippuuden, so the dub quality will remain the same. However, I do worry that we'll have to deal with a few more visual edits, since the Shippuuden stuff is a little more extreme than many Disney shows. But this is Disney XD, so it won't be any worse than, say, Spider-Man. I wouldn't worry about it.
Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010!
Post by: BrightHeart76 on October 13, 2009, 06:08:59 PM
I know I've used this example before, but here I go again.  Oban Star Racers.  Not your average Disney show.  The closing song was in Japanese, the show was visually very different than anything else on Disney, and the plot was fairly rough for the Disney crowd.  They showed that on Disney Jetix (however it's spelt) years ago and have progressed thru some other shows that are not what you would expect from Disney at all.  I expect there will be some editing to keep the plot PG, but they know they're under a lot of scrutiny from fans on this one.  I'm cautiously optimistic that this will go well.  

Imagine how many new people will be introduced Naruto when it's supported by something as HUGE as Disney.  And if they like Naruto, they'll watch different anime's too.  I think, in the long run, it'll be good.  (Then again, I've been wrong before.)

Here's a link to the closing theme from Oban Star Racer...just as an example of something a little different and a little closer to anime that has been on Disney before.

Hi guys!  We're updated again.  Not much else to report right now. 

Here's a question though.  Halloween is just around the corner (less than 2 weeks away now).  How many of you plan to wear your cosplays as your Halloween costumes?  What's your opinion on that?  I admit I've done it before, but I hate stopping all night to explain to people who I'm dressed as.  I'm going to be a purple witch this year, my hat is AWESOME.  lol.  What about you guys?

Kites-kun, you asked who I cosplay as.  I have been cosplaying as Tsunade for a few years now and plan to continue for the foreseeable future.  :)  She's a blast to cosplay as and as I get older I don't feel like I'm dressed as someone too young.  I'm honestly a lot younger than Tsunade. 

See y'all around!

I don't normally dress up for Halloween.   :D  But the two times that I did cosplay for Halloween (which was years ago), I didn't want to constantly explain myself all day and all night.  So I printed a reference picture of my costume and carried it with me.  Then each time someone asked me who I was supposed to be, I just showed them the picture and said, "This.  It's from a Japanese cartoon."

It's the least frustrating way to make other people understand.

I'm not dressing up for Halloween this year.

So I was looking at the schedule for TV this coming week.  Has anyone noticed how often DisneyXD is going to be playing Shippuden?  The first four episodes are being shown in a 2 hour block like 6 times in just a few days.  That's a whole lot of Naruto.   ;D

It'll be nice to see Naruto on TV again.  However, do you think this might be overkill? 

Just out of curiosity.  Who's going to watch in Disney?  Who's boycotting it because it's on Disney?  Who's watching it in Japanese?  Who isn't watching at all?

That is messed up. Cosplay is supposed to be for fun. As long as the costume itself is accurate (includes hair and all that stuff), then who cares?

Dude...if you wanna dress as the Jolly Green Giant...go for it.  If someone else is going to be so closed minded that they can't see past the color of their skin, you really don't need to worry about them or their issues.  Cosplay cause you love the character or are going to have fun.  Heck, our gathering wouldn't be the same without our very own black Jiraiya.

Naruto Shippuden on Disney XD! At first I thought it would be terrible but it was watchable. Not alot of bad editting with the exception of blood and language.

Also I have bad news :-[ Does anyone remember the Third Hokage and Kabuto/Shino that were hanging with me last year? Well there's a strong chance that they won't be returning as Naruto characters but as Chowder characters. Shino/Kabuto=Panini and Hokage=Chowder. *Sasuke Emo Sob* I might be a loner Sasuke :-\

Just a friendly reminder for everyone to please watch their language.  We have kids reading this forum as well as people like me who can't read the forums at work if there's any profanity.

So aside from changing the closing credits (as far as I can tell they did that so they could make the credits shorter and add more commercial time, a lot of station do that now) what else got changed?  I thought I might have noticed one or two really minor changes, but they didn't affect the flow of the story, just cut a second or two out to allow for more commercials.  Exactly what crime against anime has been committed? 

(I feel like garbage right now...I can't tell if that paragraph is coming off right.  If it sounds harsh, that's seriously not what I'm going for.  I'm just looking to see what changes people actually noticed...open discussion and all that.)

ruby19_4 - In one of the chapters Sai comes out and tells Sakura that Naruto goes and searches for Sasuke because Naru loves Saku and the more he goes and searches the more it is hurting Naru... Also the group gathers and Sakura says "I am going because that fool is in love with me"

Sorry, I really like paying close attention to what happens to Sakura since I cosplay her!

Hey everyone...  I'll be coming as Konan... 
But, does anyone have any ideas on how to transport 5ft wings on a plane?... Or even on a train, I could always put out the extra cash for a train instead, even though it'd be like 3 days... 
Either way, I can't figure out how, without them breaking...  Damn, maybe I should just save them for Otakon, idk. 

And that is an awesome poster.  :)

We're glad to have you!  I'll add you to the list soon (hopefully later today). 

As for transporting the wings. I would also be worried to transport them on a plane.  You can communicate with the company, most air carriers do have a system for transporting large and fragile items.  It'll cost, but they'll get your wings there safely.  Alternatively, you could FedEx them to the hotel, you have to organize that with the hotel, but it's really very easy.  I'd suggest FedEx, otherwise you're going to have to transport the wings when you get them from the airport and get them to the convention, and that just sounds like a pain.

Hi everyone!  We're updated again.  Don't forget to let me know if you have friends planning to cosplay at our Gathering so I can make sure that everyone gets added. :)

I have an odd question this week.  Is anyone out there willing to be a kind of "second" to help at the gathering?  To kind of pull the next photo group together so they're ready to go once the group before them is done?  No big work, but just someone to help keep things rolling in a timely fashion and maybe help a bit at the picnic?  I usually have my sister or my best friend do this, but I'm not sure either will be at the gathering this year.  Let me know if anyone is interested and we'll figure something out.   :)

Hi Everyone!  We're updated again.   ;D

Thanks to Moogleborg for offering to do Bacchikoi again this year!  My little radio just didn't work so well last year.  Let me know if I can help at all.  Also, if you want to try to set up a time for people to get together and practice, let me know and I'll post it on the main page.  :)

I haven't put up a poll for the time for our gathering this year yet.  What are you guys thinking?  We are definate for Sunday, but what time would you guys like to meet up?  I think we would do well to meet up early, then have an early picnic lunch.  That leaves the rest of the day open for everyone to enjoy the Sunday activities at Fanime. 

Ideas?  Comments?  Suggestions?  Keep them coming!  :)

I know this is a personal concern, but can we keep the time as early as possible? The Hellsing gathering is supposedly going to be right after the Naruto one. I had to miss the picnic last year because of the same reason. So can we keep the time as early as possible?  :-[

No worries.  That's why I try to get input into the gathering time before we set it up.  I figure we have a little bit of time to bring up concerns and requests before we set our official time.  I hope that everyone who has a concern feels free to bring it up here on the thread or by PM to me so we can do our best to find a time that works for the most people.   ;D

For anyone curious about why I've been a little squirrely about setting our gathering time.

http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,13396.0.html

Once we know more details we can set our time...that is about all I can say.

With that in mind.  So far it looks like most people want an early gathering.  I have had MANY complaints in the past that anything before noon is too early for people to feel ready.  What do we mean by "early"?

Noon sounds great. People can sleep in and have enough time to prepare. Then head over to the picnic for a snack or late lunch. Works for me.

And i'm getting a job in feburary with this program im doing and will be having it for 3 months , getting paid for it all so ill have money for fanime/costume. But i wanted to stay in a room but idk if i can do that , kinda sucks. I hope ill be able to get a hold of the costume i want and will probably have to edit it to fit. I hope to have a good time. Last year i loved the enviorment  friendly people. Nothing but pure fun and entertainment. months away and i can't wait.

I've thought of a fun game to play during the picnic...just have to pull it together.  Any of you have ideas?  Suggestions?

So far we're planning to do Bacchikoi again (thank you Moogleborg) and the picnic.  Do we want to try to do anything else?  I mean aside from the obvious gathering activities and photoshoot.

For ideas, maybe Ninja? XD We just gotta be careful. Ninja is both fit for this gathering, and very fun. :3 Just an idea.

Hmm... game-wise, I remember a while back, at another convention, where a bunch of us played "Ninja, Ninja, Anbu" instead of "Duck, Duck, Goose." There might be a few too many people for that, though, unless we wait until later. Just a thought.

Hmmm....I play a game with my students called "Shark".  It's always reminded me of Duck Duck Goose but requires a bit of logic.  One person is secretly assigned the duty of "Shark"  Then everyone goes around the room shaking hands with each other.  The Shark has a special hand shake that identifies them as the Shark and "kills" their victim.  Once the "victim" has been bitten by the "Shark" they have to shake hands with 3 more people and then fall down "dead"...I encourage them to have dramatic death scenes.  The only rule is they can not give any clues as to who was the "Shark".  The "Shark" does not have to "kill" everyone they shake hands with, so that they can throw the other students off their scent.  Students try to pay attention and identify the "Shark".  When they think they have it figured out they yell out "I think" Bob...or whoever they suspect "is the shark".  If they're right the "Shark" falls over dead (cue dramatic death scene) if they're wrong they fall over dead (cue even more dramatic death scene).  This continues until the shark has claimed all but 3 students or until the shark is revealed.  We could make a couple of changes to this game and it can work for large groups fairly safely. 

Instead of a "shark" we could name them an "Anbu" or "Akatsuki" or heck...why not Kisame if we're going for sharks.  lol.  The death scenes really make the game a lot more fun. 

It's an idea.  What do you guys think?  Duck Duck Goose sounds good too, probably best at the picnic.  What do you think?  I really don't know how to play Ninja...can anyone explain?  We could always try to bring back Naruto Twister if you all feel like it. Let me know.

We are updated!  Sorry for the delay. 

Things are progressing smoothly.  I need to work on a few details in the next few weeks so that it's not a rush to finish things at the end.  I hope you guys made your hotel reservations already, if not get to it!  A couple of the hotels appear to be sold out already.   :o

Something everyone can do to help prepare for the gathering is to start thinking about the photo shoot.  What groups do you want?  Is there an order you want to do groups in?  Do you have a few good poses you can practice? 

I'm hoping we can pin down our gathering time and picnic in the next few weeks (still waiting for the O.K. to get that started).  I want to put together a tentative photoshoot list in late May or Early April so we can make changes as needed.

Keep up the good ideas everyone!  You are the best!!

Sorry for the double post.

I wanted to give everyone a heads up.  I was shopping at Target this weekend and they had the most frightening clothing item.  Fishnet leggings.  Now this is frightening that I might soon see people walking down the street trying to pull off the look.  However, for cosplay purposes this is a wonderful thing.  Many of the Naruto characters have a fishnet style body suit or leggings.  These are just about the same price as a good pair of fishnet stalkings and MUCH more durable.  If you're cosplaying someone with fishnet style leggings you might want to check your local Target.

Fanime is closer every day.  Hope you guys are looking forward to some Memorial Day fun.  :D

I'm not staying there, I love the Hilton but I've heard really nice things about the Fairmont.  However, I have walked back and forth from that hotel a few times at Fanime.  The Fairmont is about a block away from the convention center.  It takes me a little more than 5 minutes, and I'm usually a slow walker.  It only ever bothered me when I'd spent much too long in my heels for the day.  I think you'll like it.   ;D

First I wanted to say Thank you to you all.  You're really keeping this thread alive, and the positive stuff lately had really made my day.  You guys rock.   :D  I'm working on surprises / fun stuff for this year.  No promises yet but there is some good stuff in the making. 

Toshi Riku, I put you down as Akatsuki Itachi, let me know if you decide to do Anbu later on and I'll change that.
PhDPepper, I put you into the creative cosplay section, let me know if you'd rather me add you to another area. 
Death_Note_Matt, I added you as Madara Uchiha in Shippuden let me know if you want to be changed to Tobi in Akatsuki or if you want Madara listed in Akatsuki.

We're still on hold for deciding our time for the gathering.  A lot of really cool stuff happening with cosplay this year.  I'll let you know as soon as we can make a decision.  Once again, let me know if you have any specific time requests or worries.  I always do my best to work out a time that's good for everyone. 

Only a few more months till Fanime!  Holy COW!  I'm so far behind!

Unfortunately we don't get to choose our day.  Because we are a large gathering we have to switch days with Bleach! each year.  Last year was our Saturday, this year is our Sunday, we'll be back to Saturday in 2011 and so on.  The good thing about Sunday is we don't have to deal with the "witnesses" and the crowd they draw.  We also don't have to worry about people being super nervous about being prepared and on time for Masquerade.  On the down side...we have to wait a whole 'nother day to have our gathering.  I personally enjoy the Sundays...much less stress.  :-)

Our meeting time is what's up for debate.  We can't make any definate times until the other events are more settled, but I'd like peole to make sure their preferences are known.  There's a lot to be concidered, so this is everyone's chance to make their voices heard.

Post by: BrightHeart76 on February 16, 2010, 06:17:25 PM
OK.  We have our go ahead to schedule the gathering.  I have heard on the open forum, in PM and in Instant Message from a few people.  Here's the break down as I see it.

11 a.m.  ~ Earliest time I'm willing to entertain.  This opens up cosplay for people with later gatherings but several people are concerned that this is too early for people who were up late the night before with Masquerade and the Dance.  I tend to agree, but let's leave it up for debate / vote.  

12 noon ~ Still early and leaves us open for the cosplayers with later gatherings.  This puts us at the same time as the Hetalia gathering which looks to be large this year.  Also a few cosplayers are concerned that they would have to pick between the two gatherings.  This does work well for the picnic though.

1 p.m. ~ This is getting late for the cosplayers with later gatherings.  This will also make lunch run late for the picnic.  I really don't see a lot of good for the 1 p.m. time slot but I want to make it an option

2 p.m. ~ This is REALLY late for cosplayers with later gatherings, the picnic would have to be before the gathering.  Also, not knowing who the MusicFest Guest will be this year this might start to be a problem for people who want to line up early. On the upside for this time, it gets us close to the Shonen Jump Gathering which Naruto is also a part of.  *Apparently I am behind the times.  MusicFest has announced LM.C  I don't know when the concert is or if it will affect us.  However, for the last few years the concert has been on Sunday so I'm going to go with that for now.  :)

Long story short no matter what time we pick someone is going to have to make a hard choice.  I'm sorry.  I wish I could make everyone happy, but there's just no way.  Vote for the time that works best for you and I'll do my best.

Because of the delay in setting our schedule I don't want to leave this poll up for long.  A few days at most.  Everyone else has to wait until we are decided to schedule their events...I don't want them to have to wait much longer.  Vote soon, I will close this poll before the end of the week.  Sorry for the short notice.

If I might make a suggestion? Given that there's often a Ninjas vs Pirates thing, I'd suggest speaking with the organizer of the One Piece gathering to find times close enough to each other for NvP, while still giving those of us going to both gatherings time to change if necessary.

Failing that, I'm going to say the earlier the better, since it seems my Cosplay Battle will probably be on the same day, and I don't want it to be too late in the day, but I certainly won't have it clash with this gathering, of course.

First off I want to thank BrightHeart for her patients :) Secondly, I wanted to invite all of the Naruto peeps to the Shonen Jump gathering on Sunday at 3 pm.

I was also wondering if maybe Naruto would like to do the cosplay chess again this year in the morning and possibly have a Naruto v Jump peeps cosplay chess game? Lord knows there is enough Bleach peeps to fill the other side, but this way some of the other Jump cospeeps can join in on the fun of chess. I can't run the chess game, but I thought it would be a great way to start the day (like 10;30 am?) What do you peeps think of having it as part of the Naruto event?

I'm no good at chess (my secret shame)...who would like to lead the Naruto Team to victory at cosplay chess?!  Come on...I know you want to do it.   ;D

Here's the official voting deadline for the time for our Gathering.  I get off of work at 4:30 p.m. on Friday.  When I get home I will be closing the polls and announcing our official gathering time for 2010.  Once that is done we can get to the fun work of preparing the fun things for our Gathering.  Picnics and Dancing and Chess Games..oh my.  :)

Eventhough it is late for lunch. We could do a snack time during picnic. I think. Just an idea. I dont mind what time. After all it dont what else is there in sunday.

OK.  We have our go ahead to schedule the gathering.  I have heard on the open forum, in PM and in Instant Message from a few people.  Here's the break down as I see it.

11 a.m.  ~ Earliest time I'm willing to entertain.  This opens up cosplay for people with later gatherings but several people are concerned that this is too early for people who were up late the night before with Masquerade and the Dance.  I tend to agree, but let's leave it up for debate / vote.  

12 noon ~ Still early and leaves us open for the cosplayers with later gatherings.  This puts us at the same time as the Hetalia gathering which looks to be large this year.  Also a few cosplayers are concerned that they would have to pick between the two gatherings.  This does work well for the picnic though.

1 p.m. ~ This is getting late for the cosplayers with later gatherings.  This will also make lunch run late for the picnic.  I really don't see a lot of good for the 1 p.m. time slot but I want to make it an option

2 p.m. ~ This is REALLY late for cosplayers with later gatherings, the picnic would have to be before the gathering.  Also, not knowing who the MusicFest Guest will be this year this might start to be a problem for people who want to line up early. On the upside for this time, it gets us close to the Shonen Jump Gathering which Naruto is also a part of.  *Apparently I am behind the times.  MusicFest has announced LM.C  I don't know when the concert is or if it will affect us.  However, for the last few years the concert has been on Sunday so I'm going to go with that for now.  :)

Long story short no matter what time we pick someone is going to have to make a hard choice.  I'm sorry.  I wish I could make everyone happy, but there's just no way.  Vote for the time that works best for you and I'll do my best.

Because of the delay in setting our schedule I don't want to leave this poll up for long.  A few days at most.  Everyone else has to wait until we are decided to schedule their events...I don't want them to have to wait much longer.  Vote soon, I will close this poll before the end of the week.  Sorry for the short notice.

Now that the business is done...let's move onto the fun!

We need a captain and players for cosplay chess.  Who's interested?  Let me know how I can help. 

MuggleBorg, how are we with preparations for dancing?

Picnic.  I'm going to say we'll do the picnic at 1:00 in the park.  It's bring your own, but feel free to bring extra.  I for one plan to bring extra.  How does that sound to you guys?

Games.  I have some games for the picnic.  What else would we like to do?

Lots of fun stuff.  Can't wait for Fanime!   ;D  ;D

Things are starting to come together.   ;D  ;D  ;D

Picnic will be open to everyone this year.  Cosplay or not.  Please help spread the word, I'd love to have a big group of Fanime people converge on the park and enjoy a nice picnic.  :D  I plan to bring some extra food, anyone else? 

I'm pulling games together for the picnic.  Some will be Naruto themed, some will be anime themed.  I"m working on changing Naruto BINGO into Anime BINGO, I'm also trying to create a set of Naruto Uno cards. Would anyone else like to bring a game?  I usually provide prizes for my games...so that's fun too.  :)

How are your cosplays coming along?  Mine are all done except for a wig I'm getting for one of my cosplays.

Hey the Naruto Black and White Ball is there anything i need to where specifically? Like a tux or something, i didint go to it last year so what would i need to bring.

There's a dress code for Black and White Ball.  Things like no jeans, sneakers, open toed shoes, t-shirts etc.  Tuxes and Gowns or encouraged (as I understand it).  You need to be dressed nicely.  You can get a more clear picture of their dress code in their thread in the Big Events area.  GomenNasaiPro runs a "formal Naruto" gathering at the Black and White ball, it's basically a chance for the Naurto Cosplayers to dress up fancy with a Naruto twist.  He's debating between a dance gathering, a dinner or both that's why I put up the poll.  If you're interested you should definately talk to him for details.  :)

Roth, I"ll add you as a chess piece right now.   ;D

I know you get into the black and white ball for free if you have Registration(or pre-reg. I cant recall.), and the masquerade is probably the same. So yes. I think you do. :3

I  got a question about the masquerade and the black and white ball, with that registration thing on the home page  of fanime do you need to register to get in or is that for participating in a skit in the event.

To clarify.  You have to be registered as a Member for Fanime (your badge) to attend these events.  You have to register as a participant if you want to present a skit at Masquerade.  If you want to be an audience member you can just come over and joing the fun.  :D  There's usually a line well in advance of Masquerade opening, but if you don't care where you sit you don't have to stand in the line for so long.  Black and White Ball is a member event, just show up dressed to meet the dress code with your Fanime Badge and you're in. 

So to repeat:
Fanime Registration = Required for entry into any Fanime event (Masq., B&W Ball, Music Fest, Dance, Dealer's Room, Video Rooms...etc.)

Masquerade Registration = Only required if you're doing a skit / presenting your cosplay for judging.  Make sure to bring your badge for general audience admission.

Black And White Ball Registration = Never heard of it.  Make sure to bring your badge for admission.

Hope that helps.  :)

The length of the line varries.  If you pre-register online before it changes to early registration you can show up as early as Thursday to get your badge.  The line for your badge on Thursday (Day Zero) is usually pretty long, but full of awesome people.  Once they open the doors it moves pretty quick.  If you pick up your badge during regular hours there is usually a special line for people who preregistered, it's usually very quick.  All of the lines have really improved in speed over the last few years, which is wonderful.

Hours for badge pickup haven't been posted yet.  In the past Day Zero opened in the late afternon (can't remember an exact time).  Day 1 (Friday) opens in the morning, I thought it was around 9 or 10, but someone else said 8.  I'll post the official times in here once Registration posts their official hours.

Hi guys!  We're updated again!  OVER 50 COSPLAYERS!!!  Wohoo!  Keep 'em coming guys.  We'll have another great year this year.  I know it.   ;D

Good news.  BSaphire, who is awesome, set it up so that the half hour after our gathering is marked as busy too.  What does this mean?  This means that if we go over half of an hour getting all of our pictures we'll be ok.  It lets the other gatherings know that the area may still be busy.  Seeing as we NEVER get all of our pictures done in half of an hour this is FANTASTIC!  Don't forget to thank B for all of her hard work.  The best way to thank her is to put our effort into making the Chess Game and her Shonen Jump Gathering ROCK.  If you can make it to Cosplay Chess and would like to play please let me know.  Once we have enough players I'll post in Shonen Jump so they can start organizing themselves.  The Jump Gathering is at 3:00 the same day as our Gathering.  Sign up with B on her thread and then drop by.  It's fun to see all of the different manga represented in that group.  Heck, it's a gathering that puts us TOGETHER with the Bleach! cosplayers, that alone is a moment of Epic. It's great each year.  :D

I had more I wanted to say but I'm totally forgetting what that way.  I'll post more later.  Keep in touch!  Fanime is closer every day!

Sorry I haven't updated this weekend guys.  It's been a bit crazed.  But things look better now.  :D

We REALLY need people to take part in the Cosplay Chess or Checkers game.  How often do you get the chance to be a living piece of a game on a giant sized board?  It'll be worth it just to tell people about when you talk about the con.  We need to know we have enough people soon so we can set it up with Shonen Jump.  Who's down for it?  I'm willing to offer candy bribes for Naruto Cosplay Participants in the game of Cosplay Chess / Checkers.

Please!  Sign up!  Sign your friends up!  It'll be lots of fun!   ;D

Happy Pi Day everyone!   ;D

We're updated again.  We have fewer cosplayers on the list so far this year than last, but I have a feeling that with the way the manga's been going and Shippuden showing in prettry regular rotation on DisneyXD we'll have a lot of people showing up who haven't signed up.  Also, a lot of people tend to sign up for the gathering as we get closer to the event.  I'll hold true to my promise from last year.  If we have more than 100 people listed for the gathering on this list I'll bring candy for everyone.   ;D

So far our schedule for Fanime Sunday looks like this:

10:30 Cosplay Checkers with our Jump friends.

(Sometime in here I expect we'll do the Bachikoi dance...more details to come)

12:00 Noon Gathering.  I'm starting a list for photo groups.  We have longer in the area this year so we should get everyone.  Start practicing serious poses as well as a "silly" pose for pictures.

1:00 Picnic lunch across the street at the park.  Games to include Anime BINGO, Naruto UNO (probably) and anything else I'm able to pull together before the con.  Bring your own lunch, but feel free to bring some to share.  Everyone is welcome, cosplay or not, Naruto fan or not. 

3:00 We are all invited to join the Shonen Jump Gathering since Naruto is featured in that magazine.  Be sure to sign up on that thread if you plan to come.   It'd be great to make a big showing at the Jump Gathering, please make it if you can.  :D

Later that night.  Formal Gathering at the Dance and/or Dinner.  Be sure to sign up on that thread if you plan to attend so GomenNasaiPro knows who's coming. 

Wow...busy day!  It should be a total blast.   ;D :D ;D

We still need more Checkers pieces and a team leader.  If you have more ideas or suggestions about anything please let me know.  Fanime is closer every day...see you guys soon!

Thanks B.   ;D

Hi guys!  We're looking good for the gathering this year.  Just a little over 2 months til Fanime.  What do you all think about the events for this year?  Would you like to add or change anything?  Ideas are always welcome, this is your gathering so please feel free to bring your ideas.

Hey peoples. I wanted to know if anyone know where i can get hyuuga contact lens or something that looks like the byakugan. Anyone knows plz tell me.   ;D

I've heard good things about these people.  I don't see the byakugan eyes right now, but I'm 98% sure they've had them in the past. 

http://www.cosplaylab.com/proshop/idoleyes.asp

Two important things to remember.
1. Any reputable contact dealer will require a current measurement from you optometrist.  They won't just send you "generic" contacts.
2. Byakugan contacts usually cover your pupil, this will make you blind when the contacts are in.  Please do me a favor.  If you have in contacts that make you blind at the gathering and you are not used to being blind, have a friend help you so you don't get hurt and let me know so I can help keep an eye out for you.  The gathering can be pretty crazy, it can be dangerous if you're not used to being blind.  I want to do the best we can to keep everyone safe.

Don't get me wrong.  I'm all for cosplay authenticity.  If you are comfortable wearing contacts like that good for you and you're always welcome.  I just want to do everything we can to be safe.

I may drop by to take pictures since I retired my Sasuke cosplay last year since my hair was shorter than what it use to be back in Fanime 2007.

Re: the most recent manga...

YAY!!!  They didn't kill my character off!  I was begining to worry about that.  She's awake...now will she take over the title of Hokage again or retire and let Kakashi take it?

It's been a BAD week for me, so I haven't done a lot gathering wise.  Things are still moving well though.  Hope you are all doing well.  Fanime is just around the corner!

Hi guys!  I will update the list this weekend.  Let me know if you have any friends you think are going to come to the gathering.  Less than 2 months till Fanime!  Wohoo!   ;D

Now...this week's manga...

HOLY COW!!  That last panel makes me a little nervous for a HUGE fight coming their way.  What do you guys think of Orochimaru/Kabuto Hybrid trying to team up with Tobi/Madara and bringing all the dearly departed Akatsuki with him?  Kind of ominous if you ask me.

On a different kind of spoiler note...I think the last panel provided some really cool ideas for cosplay.  If I didn't have mine all set already I think I'd try one of those.  I mean the zombie re-animated Akatsuki of course...could make some great pictures if we could find some Resident Evil people to pose with.  lol.

Re: Recent Manga Chapter

To be honest...  It made me *facepalm*.  Meh.  Necromancy isn't my cup of tea.  It's creepy.  I'm almost ready to stop reading the manga until the quality improves - if it ever does.  :P  Cosplay crossover photos with Resident Evil?  It's an interesting idea.

On a somewhat related note.  I'm looking for 2 people who will be at the convention on Monday from noon until 1:00 and are willing to give an hour of their time to do something I think will be pretty cool.  It's not Gathering related, you do not need to be in cosplay and if you are in cosplay it doesn't matter what show you're from.  I will need about an hour of your time, and you'll get to do something a lot of people wish they could do at Fanime during that hour.  We can even discuss a reward for your time if you're interested. 

Please PM me if you're interested and would like more details.  Because this isn't specifically about the gathering I'm not going to bring it up here again.   

But seriously...you know you wanna do it...it'll be fun.  Just 2 people for 1 hour (45 minutes actually). PM me.

Hey guys!  Sorry for the delay in updating.  I have reasons, but don't doubt that organizing our Gathering and Events is primary in my mind.  I'll have us updated in the next few days, Scouts Honor.

On an up note, the Anime BINGO game is almost done.  I need to change a font or 12 and print up the boards...that's it.  Naruto UNO is also nearly done.  We'll have lot's of fun games this year.   :D

I'm pulling together the list of photo groups.  Does anyone have any suggestions or requests?  Don't forget to practice your poses (we usually do one serious pose and one silly pose per group).

We have plans for cosplay checkers, Dancing, the picnic, UNO and BINGO.  Is there anything else you would like to add?  Let me know so we can make sure it's on our list.   ;D

Going to be a busy year this year, but it'll be a blast too.

I'm going to another anime convention in May. It's a one day con called Bak-Anime and is located in Bakersfield, CA, which is 2 1/2 hours from where I live. One of the guests there will be Liam O'Brien, who does the voice of Gaara in Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, Ukitake in Bleach, and Lloyd in Code Geass.

Post by: BrightHeart76 on April 18, 2010, 08:29:19 PM
Hi All!

We're updated!  YAY!  Almost 60 people on the list, not too shabby.  Let me know if you have anyone else I should add.  I'm making the same deal I did last year.  If we have 100 people signed up for the gathering before Day 0 I will buy candy for everyone...sweet sugary candy...yum.   ;D

Cosplay Checkers seems to be coming along well too.  Let me know if you're not on the list yet and are interested in playing.  I think it's going to be a total blast...and I mean seriously how many times in your life to get to be a piece on a game board?  Not many I tell you.

The picnic will be great.  I just finished the BINGO cards yesterday and UNO is almost done.  Just FYI BINGO will be played at the picnic, at the Shonen Jump gathering AND if you're interested it will also be played on Stage Zero on that Monday from Noon until 12:45 (Thanks to everyone who has offered to help, your assistance is GREATLY appreciated).

Do we still want to play Shark?  If so I need to figure out where that will fit into the schedule best.

@Moogleborg.  Any updates from you regarding when and where you'd like to do Bacchikoi?  No worries, no stress.  We still have over a month until Fanime. 

@ruby19_4.  Thanks for asking.  Things seem to be smoothing out for now.  Come Gathering day I'm sure things will be crazy, lol I'll be easily identified as the crazy chick running around like a chicken with my head cut off.  If you think of something you'd like to do, please let me know and we'll make it happen.  It's always fun to be involved in the events and I'm happy to let everyone be involved.   ;D  FYI  the best research I can find says it's about 238 miles from San Mateo to Bakersfield. 

@Dragon Ninja.  Lucky you!  Have fun at that convention!  I'd love to hear from you after you've gone, let us all know if Liam O'Brien is really awesome enough in real life to be Gaara.   8)

Just a little over a month until the fun begins guys!  I'll post my initial ideas for photo groups and orders some time in the next week or so. 

Keep being awesome!

Hey Bright, I'm pretty sure I can lend some help on Monday for that thing. You know? That thing THING?
12-1245??

You can sign me up for that Chess/Checkers thingie. It's been ages since I've played those games. Would be nice to be part of it.

You can add two more to the list! Myself as Naruto and then I'll cart Sasuke not too far behind me. :P

Hopefully, we can get our Cosplay Contest entries done soon, then we can finish our Sage!Naruto and Taka/Akatsuki!Sasuke to add on top our outfits. If not, then we'll be in "regular" Shippuuden gear. . . minus the original design details we slaughtered onto the costumes. . . *cough* ^^;

I'm so excited! Haven't been able to hit a Naruto gathering since 2007! Setting aside a WHOLE day for Naruto so I won't miss out again.  >x<

Got you all added.  That gets us up to 62 cosplayers if we average just 1 cosplayer added to the list per day from here until Fanime we'll make the 100 mark.  It's going to be another great year!

@EJAY420 - I had you on the list, as a subset of Sasori.  I've moved it now so that you are listed as your own character, let me know if that's ok.  Happy to have your help on Monday.  Once things get closer I'll contact everyone who has contacted me with details on what to do.   ;D

Foxas - Happy to have you guys.  Let me know if you want me to change your character listing.  Sounds like you'll have some great cosplays. 

@ICosplayNeji - Yay for cousins!  LOL.  In the past the Neji and Hinata cosplayers don't interact much.  It would be nice to see some friendly family bonding on the ninja variety.  lol. 

Looking forward to seeing you all in a few weeks!

So...I had a moment of inspiration.  Well either a moment of inspiration or a total brain failure.  Either way I figured I'd run it past you all.

I'm working on the photo groups for this year's gathering.  While I was working on it I noticed that sitting on my desk I have a teddy bear dressed as Kakashi and a picure of my friends penguin dressed a leaf village ninja (some of you may remember Ted the penguin from last year).  I thought, wouldn't it be hillarious to do a group picture with stuff animals dressed as Naruto characters.  I even thought about how to make a Tsunade Jacket for my BrightHeart plushie. 

So I ask you all...would anyone else be interested in a kind of "mini-group" of cosplayed out stuffed animals?  It sounds absolutely dorky...but sometimes dorky can be fun.  I figure we could bring them to the gathering and do a picture there. 

I could bring some extra fabric and supplies if people wanted to pull together plushie cosplays at the convention.  It's a fun way to include just a little bit more of the creative side of us all. 

I don't know, probably a dumb idea.  But definately worth bringing up.  Let me know if anyone is interested.

Oh this really make me want to bring my pet dog and dress her up as Sasuke or Itachi... but she's white, and she would hate the hair cut and me dyeing her ;D. And I don't think the convention or Hilton hotel would let me bring her xD
If only I had a lizard v.v (snakes don't dress up very well)

But the stuff animal idea would be interesting, unfortunately not something ill be able to join in

So as I was working on the photo list for this year I realized that unless something changes, this will be our first year without a Zabuza / Haku group!  Holy Cow!!  I almost feel sad.  lol.  We've got lots of great new cosplays this year, but no Zabuza.  

That being said, here are my ideas for photo groups this year.  This is in no particular order yet and these are just ideas.  Let me know if you think of one you'd like to add or have any issues with a certain group.

Whole Group Photo
Original Series Group Photo
Shippuden Group Photo
Creative Cosplayers (original versions of Naruto Characters)
Akatsuki
Team Hebi
Leaf Village Ninja's
Sand Village Ninja's
(What other villages are represented?)
All Kage's from All Villages
Teachers
Team 7 (all variations)
Team 8 (Shino, Hinata, Kiba and Kurenai-Sensei)
Team Gai
Sand Siblings
Ino-Shika-Cho
Anbu Black Ops
Spoiler Alert Picture / Bring out your Dead (all the dead characters)


The "final" list with all of the groups in their fanime order will be posted a week or so before Fanime.  Things always change on the Gathering day, there's a lot of Naruto Cosplayers out there who don't post here for various reasons so my list is only a generalization of what we expect.

Edit: Don't forget no matter what groups you're in we do 2 poses.  One serious group and one silly group.  So when you practice poses remember to practice a serious pose and a silly pose.

I noticed there's a whole hebi group but no sasuke xD
If everyone wants the images to look more whole, I don't mind being thrown in there instead of akatsuki, sense all I have to do is take off the akatsuki cloak.
I'll have my cloak either way, just an idea ^^ just be nice sense there's already an akatsuki Sasuke.

You're more than welcome to be in both photos.  Whatever you think is best for you.  We do have a Team Hebi without Sasuke, however I do believe there will be at least one at the gathering.

Please feel free to take part in as many photo groups as are appropriate for you or to pick and choose the ones you want to include yourself in.   :D

I have never seen a year without a Gai-Sensei.  Like I said a lot of cosplayers don't register for the list here, infact that Gai-Sensei that comes to mind first has never registered in advance for the gathering and has been there every year that I've been there.  Of course I make no promises...but I feel some level of confidence that we'll see Gai.  Ten-Ten is iffy, there have been less and less of her over the years.  Ino-Shika-Cho is in the same category, fewer cosplayers each year and certain characters get missed all together.  We'll do our best and see what happens.  LOL, I suppose we could always get someone to photoshop the characters into the pictures after all is said and done.   :P

I don't know, probably a dumb idea.  But definately worth bringing up.  Let me know if anyone is interested.

I'll take part in this! It sounds pretty fun and awesome.

I'm gonna be cosplaying Rock Lee from the regular ol' Naruto, but drunk and sexy no jutsu! I'm really excited! I hope to find a Gai-sensei to gush about the spring time of youth with, and maybe a Gaara to swoon over.  :) And I'll be there Thursday through Monday, but I don't know what days for sure I'm cosplaying Lee as yet.

Well, other than Day Zero. That's the only day for sure that I know I'm cosplaying--oh, and of course for the gathering, but the CLAMP gathering is at one so I'll be leaving early for that since I'm cosplaying CCS!Sakura, as well. >_<

I like Friday in my opinion, that just if its all ok for those who just want to meet the other cosplayers in this grp. I would like to myself just to get past that meet awkwardness at the picnic and photoshoot.

I'd maybe be interested in going out for food with a bunch of Naruto cosplayers. It depends on what time, and I may have to leave early. Five I could maybe do. But I'm on the wait list for the swap meet that night, so I'd definitely have to dash a bit early on.

I'm wondering if maybe we should move the discussion of a dinner meet up to that forum for gatherings and meet-ups and stuff. I know that one isn't Fanime Cosplay related, so I'm not sure if this would fit or not, but it might be easier to plan it if it's not against the rules, ne?

Post by: BrightHeart76 on April 28, 2010, 05:44:28 PM
I'm perfectly happy to keep the discussion here.  Do you want me to add this as a Naruto Group Event on the first page?

I"ll pull together a list of local food type places and list it here.  How far away are you guys willing to go?

Edit:  Here's a some information.

Here's a link for food near the convention center.  http://www.sanjose.org/visitors/eat/distance.php

I"m thinking it's best to stay within 1/2 of a mile, pick food that is "affordable" and places that will let us order individually so that no one winds up with a big bill and people who forget to pay (it's happened before).  That being said I pulled these restaraunts off of the list as things I think are good possibilities...as always these are just suggestions.

Pita Pit (Pita Sandwiches)
Jersey San Jose (cheese steak)
The Blue Chip (cheese steak)
Asian Gourmet Express (Chinesse)
Agave Viejo (Mexican food)
Quizno's (Sandwiches)
McDonald's (Fast Food)
Jack in the Box (Fast Food)
La Victoria's (Mexican) (I love La Vic's but it IS kind of crowded)
Pizz'a Chicago (Chicago style Pizza)
Subway (Sandwiches)

I have to put in my vote for McDonald's.  Not because I love the food...but because we could be "McNinja's" and that would be awesome.  lol.
Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010! (NEED COSPLAY CHECKERS PLAYERS)
Post by: Eeri-chan on April 28, 2010, 06:16:04 PM
Okay, just thought I'd suggest it. :)

As for food, the Pita Pit is really awesome! And there's that one Japanese place that serves bento not too far away. It might be more than half a mile though. Although, I have to say that fast food makes me sick, so I wouldn't be able to join in on the McDonalds Ninja-ing.
Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010! (NEED COSPLAY CHECKERS PLAYERS)
Post by: roth14 on April 28, 2010, 06:27:04 PM
So then lets take a vote  ;D


Pita Pit (Pita Sandwiches)
Jersey San Jose (cheese steak)
The Blue Chip (cheese steak)
Asian Gourmet Express (Chinesse)
Agave Viejo (Mexican food)
Quizno's (Sandwiches)
McDonald's (Fast Food)
Jack in the Box (Fast Food)
La Victoria's (Mexican) (I love La Vic's but it IS kind of crowded)
Pizz'a Chicago (Chicago style Pizza)
Subway (Sandwiches)
Johnny Rockets (5O's diner style)
House of Siam


Here's a Google maps that show the places around the center. Just is case I missed some.
http://maps.google.com/maps?hq=http://maps.google.com/help/maps/directions/biking/mapplet.kml&ie=UTF8&ll=37.687624,-122.319717&spn=0.346132,0.727158&z=11&lci=bike&dirflg=b&f=d&utm_campaign=en&utm_medium=ha&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-bk-bd&utm_term=google%20maps
Just look up the San Jose Convention center.


I vote for the "House of Siam" or one of the sandwich places.

Yeah, the Bento place is within the half mile, but the food made me super sick the last 2 times I tried to eat there so I didn't include it.  That was a personal thing.  It's fine if you guys want to go there, but I can't come within 100 feet of that place after the last few times.

Pita Pit is good.

Poll set up.  Vote!

Oh, well, if it made you sick then it's best if we not include that. We don't want anyone else getting sick, or having you getting sick again. That would suck.

Hi guys!  Two things.

First, the poll for where to eat on Friday will probably only be up thru this weekend.  Please make sure to vote if you think you might go.

Second, I'm going to have to make the photo groups official soon (by soon I mean next week).  Please let me know if you have any opinions, ideas or suggestions.  If I schedule 3 minutes per photo the current list puts us at almost 1 hour...and that is our maximum time limit.  We can always take some out, but I want to make sure that everyone is included in at least one photo group outside of the large groups.  

Also in regard to photo groups.  Do we want to add a third pose to the large groups (All, Original Series and Shippuden) so that we would have Serious, Silly and a Battle pose?  Think about it and let me know.

@TokenBlackGuy ~ Yes.  Your idea DID become a reality!  Thanks for sharing it, the Friday dinner will be a total blast.  Kudos to everyone who has helped pull this event together.  You guys continue to Rock.

@EJAY420 ~ You should definately try to make dinner.  If not some of us adults over 21 (sorry kidlings) might try to go back out later...depends on how tired we all are.  I know I have to get up at the crack of dawn and drive 5 hours on Friday to get there, so I might be tired.  We'll all see.  :)

EDIT:  Here's the preliminary list of photogroups.  I need to finalize groups and their order next week...any and all comments are welcome.

Whole Group Photo
Original Series Group Photo
Shippuden Group Photo
Creative Cosplayers (original versions of Naruto Characters)
Akatsuki
Team Hebi
Leaf Village Ninja's
Sand Village Ninja's
(What other villages are represented?)
All Kage's from All Villages
Teachers
Team 7 (all variations)
Team 8 (Shino, Hinata, Kiba and Kurenai-Sensei)
Team Gai
Sand Siblings
Ino-Shika-Cho
Anbu Black Ops
Spoiler Alert Picture / Bring out your Dead (all of the dead characters)

I like the dead characters photo group. Will we all be lying down dead? That seems to be the best way to represent our deceased status.

Also, for the other villages represented, would that include Akatsuki from that village? For example, Itachi with the Leaf Village group, Sasori with the Sand Village group, etc? (Not like there are gonna be any Waterfall Village ninja other than other Kakuzu, but I figured I should ask anyways.)

I figured the two poses for the dead character photo could be a serious one where they are all standing and looking to be in deep thought about the afterlife (or some other such pose) and the silly one could be everyone whose cosplays will allow them to lay on the ground lying there acting all dead.  (People who can't lay down are gonna have to find another way to look all dead.)  Could be an awesome picture.  I don't know...what do you all think is best?  There was once a suggestion to have the character who killed another stand over the dead character...that becomes a logistical nightmare because...some of the people who killed one character or another are now themselves dead. 

The village question.  I was debating that just now.  My personal opinion is that Akatsuki should probably be included with their own villiage... Orochimaru is a Leaf Ninja, so is Itatchi and so on....  That being said, I think that we would do best to invite the smaller villiages to come up together and stand in small groups.  Waterfall on the right, Mist to their left and so on.  This has pros and cons.  I don't want to minimize the importance of each villiage.  However, if we do 3 minutes for every villiage, including the ones only represented by one or two cosplayers we'll miss out on other photo groups.  Creative solutions are always welcome, for now I'm planning to have the villiage photos as Leaf, Sand and everybody else.

I think those sound good to me. As long as we get at least one shot with the dead characters lying dead, I'm good with it. Tho' there is that whole Edo Tensei zombie thing, as of recent chapters...

Small villages together also sounds agreeable. That way we can get each village up there without taking too much time, and the photographers can take pics of individual village clumps at that time. Just my input, at least.

i also got a quick question about early registration for the badges. If i were to go through the entire registration process with buying the badges in all, would i had to wait in the uber long line. Or just go in and get the badges. In showing up early thursday and my friends and i are wondering if this is the way it works.
(theres just 3 of us in the quantity matters.)
If i asked this alrdy my bad just making sure everything goes as planned for that awesomenesssuperful weekend. : p

What about some cute poses? I know a lot of people who cosplay from Naruto do so in pairs, like who they ship (especially when it comes to Naruto and Sasuke), that might be a bit of a nightmare, though, but it's a thought.

Also, if I'm Sexy No Jutsu Drunken Fist Rock Lee would I still get to pose with the "original Naruto" group? It's only really the slightest variation on the cosplay in that I have boobs--and I don't feel like binding. That's annoying when you don't have to (and when you have panic attacks that make it hard to breathe.)

And I think the idea of a battle pose would be awesome!!! There are some pretty epic Battle moments throughout the series, and everyone has a battle pose, I think. It sounds like so much fun. :)

I dont mind what it is. I also wonder if they allowed us to take picture when we all in the restaurant. U know we could act like we are attacking the store or something positive. Either way. Thats sounds fun.

Love the gathering. I didnt know that it will be an hour. I though it will be longer. But its good.

I think all the restaurants are used to the Fanime folks by now. ha ha. I imagine they get ready in advance before the horde of cosplayers is upon them. I could just imagine them all looking at the calendar going, "It's time." heh heh.

But still, we should act within some kind of reason, I suppose. :/
Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010! (NEED COSPLAY CHECKERS PLAYERS)
Post by: BrightHeart76 on April 30, 2010, 06:15:29 PM
Yes.  Good behavior is a must.  Most places are ok with you taking pictures as long as you don't include staff, but it's up to each store and our behavior would be a big part of that.  I'm sure that won't be a problem, I'm just saying.

Some posed group photos would be GREAT.  A pose that looks like we're attacking...I'm a little iffey on.  I don't personally see a problem with it, but I don't know how the restaraunt would react.  And let's remember the cardinal rule of eating out...don't peeve off the person who makes your food.  Let's see how the atmosphere is when we get there.  Does that work?

Just fair warning.  I will not be in cosplay on Friday, just regular ol' me.  I don't know if we plan for this event to be in cosplay, but after a day of driving there is just no way I'm going to try and walk around in those Tsunade heels.  Let me know if this is a problem for anyone.

Onto the Gathering Photo Groups.  Eeri-chan you're right, a lot of people DO like specific "cute pairs" in Naruto.  However, fitting all of the pairs into our time frame is impossible.  So instead of alienating one group or another I don't include the pairs in the official list.  How it usually works is that once the official group photos are done we break up.  There will likely be some time left at the fountains before the next group is scheduled to start, this is an opportunity for pairs and special pictures, usually the large group breaks up into 3 or 4 smaller groups for this.  This year we have an added opportunity for pairs and special photos.  Right after the Gathering we have the picnic at Cesar Chavez Plaza.  This is a really pretty park and I think it would be neat for some people to take pictures while the picnic kind of sets up.  I hope that makes sense, if not let me know.  ;D

Sexy No Jutsu Drunken Rock Lee...of course you're welcome in the original group as well as the creative cosplay group.  The deal is you decide what groups are right for you and join in.  I mean you might get a few jeers if you try to join the Akatsuki group or something, but so long as you feel right with a group join it.  :)

@ruby19_4 ~ It is longer than an hour...kind of.  Here's the deal.  We have events starting at 10 that morning with Cosplay Checkers, then we have Bacchikoi dancing, then the hour long Gathering, then the picnic, then a short break and finally the Shonen Jump Gathering.  No you don't have to take part in ALL of this, but if you're so inclined you could spend about 6 hours involved in Naruto Group fun and shinanigans on Sunday alone.   And if the Formal Gathering / Dinner comes together even more.  Yeah...we in the Naruto Cosplay Group have claimed Fanime Sunday as Naruto Day, we shall celebrate our brightly colored Ninja fandom!  

Well now that I've posted a novel I'll move on.  I may or may not be able to keep up with the forums this weekend.  If you ask me a question and I don't answer for a day or two don't think I'm ignoring you.  I am helping a friend with Wedding Dress Shopping in Sacramento this weekend and I don't know if I'll have internet access at the hotel.  Worst case scenario I will catch up on Sunday night.

Later days!

EDIT:  FYI I talked to BSaphire, she is going the add Fridays Event to the official Events list once we have a time and place.  We are using the title "Naruto Meet and Eat".  Does anyone have a problem with that?

Post by: Eeri-chan on April 30, 2010, 06:48:46 PM
Yeah, I kind of thought that doing couples would be a bit much. I mean, even if you grabbed all the Narutos and Sasukes for one photo together, and all the Lees and Gaaras for another, or all the Shikamarus and Temaris... and so on and so forth. It's just so much, and so many variations. Especially when things aren't necessarily canon.

I wish I could go to the picnic. I would love to, but the gathering following the Naruto gathering is the CLAMP gathering, so I'll be dashing off to change out of my Lee costume and into my Cardcaptor Sakura cosplay. I'll probably find a Gaara though during the con on Friday or early Saturday to take pictures with.

And awesome. I thought it would be fine if I was in the Original group, but I just wanted to check. And my costume is really only Sexy No Jutsu because of the boob thing. I swear, binding can be such a pain. haha. I couldn't imagine Lee in the Akatsuki group unless he got lost. O_O Which could happen while drunk. And then he'd fight all of them and kick some butt. :) hehe.

It's hard to say how long the line will be.  Depending on when you show up and frankly how many people are in line.    :D

But the answer is yes, you will have to stand in line. 

However, if you're showing up Thursday make sure you are Pre-reg.  Early reg can not pick up their memberships until Friday.

Gotta share my good news.  Well it's good for me.

Anime BINGO and Naruto-Uno are DONE!!!  The computer files are complete.  The corrections have been made.  The final products have been printed and are waiting for everyone to enjoy at Fanime! 

Months of work and Thank Goodness it's all done!!  HUGE sigh of relief.  :D

How are you guys doing on your Fanime preparations?  Are your cosplays done?  Getting enough money saved? Have you started practicing your poses?  Feeling ready for the fun that is Fanime now that it's actually May and Fanime is just a couple of weeks away?

Oh, I am so excited! I just got my weapons pouches and shoes in the mail today! I'm still waiting on my wig, gloves, and the top of my shirt (I had to piece everything together. Right now, I have the bottom half and a leotard but it doesn't have sleeves, so just waiting on the top with sleeves.)

And I've already got the Nice Guy Kata down! I still need to perfect it, because it's not yet perfect, but it's totally awesome. It flows. It looks good, and I can do it pretty fast. It's the kata that Lee and Gai-sensei do in the fifth introduction song. It's featured in the introduction from like episode 125... or something. I think. It's when Lee shows up to fight Kimimaro. I've also got his stance when he's drunk that I want to work on a bit more, but it's coming along. I want to get the box set with Gaara and Lee's match during the preliminary matches for the Chuunin exams so I can look at some of that.

I still need to buy a sake bottle for a prop, too. 

Etto... is there anything else??? I can't think of anything else. My costumes almost done, my poses are coming along, and I just need the one prop. Although, I do want to see if I can catch some of the phrases that he says in the Japanese. I'm not far enough along in the language to know how to say stuff like "I'm enjoying the Spring Time of my Youth!" haha.

@Brightheart76   Thank you. Thank you for just for everything you've done for us and Fanime. Every year I notice u work ur butt off for this spectacular event. God bless your soul sweet child. :)


On that note, Fanime is like less than a month away. I'm getting really excited about this.   This is one wonderful vacation for me. Cosplay has been ready for days. Nothing big. Saved up about a months income for this shit. I love this time of year.

I'm so disappointed a friend was going to help me made Sasuke's black sword (that I couldn't find online and con safe anywhere) bailed on me.
Though the costume is done, no sword to finish it off v.v

I hope I get lucky and find the right one in the dealer's room.... or someone else knows where i can get one online?

haha. Well, if you have Neji's hair already, then it only makes sense that you cosplay him! Especially because wigs can be a bit annoying. All itchy and stuff, sometimes. I can only imagine how annoying that gourd would be though. Ugh.

Besides, this means I can challenge my eternal rival to a match! :)

Post by: BrightHeart76 on May 02, 2010, 10:53:44 PM
Well this is an interesting situation.  Time is up for the poll and we have a tie.  ACK!

3 votes each for Pita Pit and Johnny Rockets
1 vote each for Asian Gourmet Express, Quizno's, McDonald's, Jack in the Box and Subway.

I lean towards Pita Pit for 3 reasons:

1.  Pita Pit, Quizno's and Subway are all sandwich shops so the votes are for similar food.  In Johnny Rocket's defense there was no other restaraunt on the list to compare it to.

2.  Pita Pit allows people to pay individual and easy.  This also assures that the people who have to leave early for the Swap Meet aren't waiting for the waitress to find their check so that they can pay. 

3.  The One Piece Pirates will be stinking Johnny Rockets up with their Pirate Stank on Thursday night...do we really want to look like we're copying the Pirates?  Where is the Ninja pride?  :P

OK so point 3 was just me being silly.  None the less, I lean toward Pita Pit.  We can always stop at Johnny Rockets on the way back to get malts to go if that helps.

I need to use the poll for a different reason for the next few days, so I can't start a new poll for where to eat.  I'm asking for you guys to engage in some friendly debate on eating location for the Friday Meet and Eat.  Creative solutions are, as always, welcome.   

Happy Monday everyone!

Well, my vote was for the Pita Pit because, not only do I have to leave for the Swap Meet, but Johnny Rocket's makes me feel sick. It's too greasy and stuff. It's just bad for you. And I have a really sensitive stomach to that kind of stuff. Also, it's true that it would be easier since there wouldn't be one cheque that we had to figure out how to split and stuff.

It's delish! They have fantastic food, and lots of options. Plus, it doesn't make me sick afterward, which is a good thing in my book. It's must healthier than going to fast food or Johnny Rockets. They basically have sandwiches. It's like Subway or Quiznos, kind of. But better.

The third to last piece of my Lee cosplay just got here! It totally completes the cosplay, the only problem is that this piece is a slightly different shade of green than the rest of the cosplay--except, it's a better colour for Lee's costume. -falls- ARG! I am so frustrated. First, I had to send back shoes to get them in a larger size, now I have to go around looking for leggings and a leotard that are the same shade of green as the piece that just arrived.

Curse you, Cosplay Gods!!! :(

I was going to make a nice quality one out of wood, working hard on the prop just to down scale too cardboard just isn't the same v.v and it probably to late to try to find someone else with the right power tools. oh well...

That's what I meant by 'board' haha. Sorry, I wasn't very clear. And if not wood, some kind of thick board could work. Craft stores have them, and it would be easier to work with than wood. You could double or triple it up, if need be, even.

I thought we were just playing against ourselves, like Naruto characters versus Naruto characters. Oh, wouldn't it be cool if it were like, Shippuden versus original, or the "good" ninja versus Akatsuki! And I know it's checkers, I was wondering why?

All information for the checkers event can be found on this thread.

http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,13720.0.html

BSaphire is the organizer...I'm kind of helping.   ;)

Checkers should start at 9:30 that morning, there are 3 to 5 games planned.

We did checkers instead of chess because in years past we have had no luck running Naruto Chess.  When we started pulling it together this year I asked if people would be more interested in playing Cosplay Chess or Cosplay Checkers.  Checkers won in a popular vote, thus we are doing Cosplay Checkers.   :D 

However, if you want to watch Cosplay Chess Bleach will be doing that on Saturday.  It is a Bleach only event though.

Hope that helps!

I prefer chess because it's more complicated, but I'm totally happy to play Checkers! I don't cosplay from Bleach. I lost interest in it ages ago.

And since it's Sunday before the Naruto gathering, I can totally make it! That's awesome! Hopefully there's still time for me to make it to the Pirates vs Ninja gathering if it's on Sunday before the Naruto gathering. Goodness, I don't think I've ever been so busy at Fanime before. haha. I also didn't have different characters to cosplay before, so this is exciting.

Cool beans.  Sounds like nearly everyone is ok with Pita Pit.  I've got some ideas for how to incorporate people who don't want Pita Pit, but honestley I won't know if any of them work until we're at Pita Pit.  Let's see how it works out from there.   :D

I'll put up a poll for when to meet early next week.  Between now and then is the time to suggest times and list the reasons for your chosen time. 

Last bit of Meet and Eat business is where do we meet?  I'm thinking it would be best if we met somewhere at the convention center and walked down as a group.  That way no one gets lost and we have more time to talk without food in our mouths.  What do you guys thing?  Suggestions?

A lot of you are picking the options with "and other events BrightHeart forgot"...uh oh...what did I forget?  I know the Meet and Eat isn't on there, but that's cause the poll is for Sunday events and the Meet and Eat is Friday.  Did I miss something else?  Let me know so I can keep my official schedule (currently a row of post-it notes on my table that will soon become an actual list) up to date. 

Good news.  The bullhorn arrived in the mail today.  It looks much better than the one from last year...everyone should be able to hear me.  All of my cosplay peices have arrived and simply need some pressing for the older pieces.  I have about half of the BINGO and UNO prizes here already, the rest are on a UPS truck somewhere steaming toward my location.  I am all ready for Fanime!  YAY!!!!  Are you all just about ready?  Just a couple of weeks to go.

Picnic is the other event I'm starting to put the final touches on.  Please remember that EVERYONE is welcome at the picnic.  If you have friends or family who would like to join us we would love to have them.  Cosplay is not required.  This is bring your own lunch, but feel free to bring extra to share.  Some of you have mentioned that you worry about being a part of the picnic because of other gatherings at the same time.  I totally understand if you miss the picnic, but I figure we'll be there for an hour or more (eating, playing games etc) so feel free to head over when your gathering is done and join us if we're still there. 

Last but not least I will be turning in our photo shoot list tomorrow.  Is everyone ok with the list I have presented?  Any changes to the order or additions of groups need to be presented to me in the next day (before 5:00 p.m. Wednesday May 5, 2010).  The official photo list will not change after that.  We may add some groups if the need arises at the convention (it's hard to guess what cosplayers will be there unannounced) but for all intents and purposes the list I turn in tomorrow IS the photo list.  Let me know if you have any changes you'd like to see.

Post by: Eeri-chan on May 04, 2010, 09:11:59 PM
Everything sounds so awesome!!!

I think the best place to meet would be in front of the convention center at the fountain. Maybe we could bring a sign in case not everyone is in cosplay or is in a different cosplay? And I think the best time would probably be like four, because some of us will have to leave early for the swamp meet. I mean, if we were to go at 4:45 that would only give those of us going to the swap meet to sell stuff about forty-five minutes, and usually in large groups (especially with so many excited cosplayers getting to know each other) eating could take a while.

I doubt the CLAMP gathering would end before the picnic. Plus, I'm sure my friends will want to do a photoshoot, but if I have time I will totally stop by the picnic. I'm sad I can't make it to more of the Naruto events. :/ I'd love to play some of those games.

And I'm so bummed. I got the third to last piece of my costume yesterday, but it turns out that it changes everything about the costume! It's the exact right colour of Lee's costume, but the rest of the costume is a slightly different colour--so now I have to see if I can find a new leotard and leggings to match my outfit. Hell, I think that piece I got isn't gonna work. I'm so frustrated. Blarg. I mean, worse case scenario, I either don't have the long sleeves (and can get away with it because I'm the "sexy no jutsu" version) or I mismatch a bit. Still, it's annoying. -sigh-

Oh, and I don't remember, but on the photo list, do we have like an Akatsuki vs "good" ninjas shot? I think that would be awesome. Just a thought. :)

I am a TERRIBLE dancer!  Like, it's a crime against humanity for me to "shake my groove thing".  However, I plan to do my very best.  Seriously guys, we need a large crowd of dancers to distract from my...unfortunate lack of dance skills.

As far as location goes.  I looked at the list.  Rozen Maiden will be at Fountains Marriot Side (our location) at 11.  Other than that it looks like the location is open.  We'll have to ask BSaphire if it's ok for us to use the location for Bacchikoi Dancing, but I think it'll be ok.  If not, we can always find an area, Sunday morning should be fairly low key...I think.  Moogleborg, can you PM BSaphire to ask?  I'm sure she must think I'm stalking her by now with as many PM's as I send.  That way if there is a problem you two can work out a solution together.  Let me know if that's a problem. 

YAY!  It's all coming together beautifully.  You guys ROCK!

@ Eeri-chan ~ Fountains in front sounds fine to me for meeting up.  Let's see how everyone else feels.  I'll figure out a way to identify the group closer to the convention.  A sign is either small enough to carry around easily but hard to see or big enough to see and too big to carry around easily.  Let's think about it some.  We have some time to work out the details. 

Sorry about your cosplay challenges.  I'm sure it will be great when you are done.  :) 

Regarding the Akatsuki vs "good" ninja shot.  It's a good idea.  And without going into spoiler territory it's hard for me to explain why this seems logistically very difficult.  I think we would do best to save this for fan, photographer, fellow cosplayer requested photo's at the end of the gathering. I'll stick around with the bullhorn for a few minutes to help pull together bigger groups if we need them.  As a suggestion it would be good to start posting on here if you want specific cosplayers to pose for any pictures.  Give them a heads up that you'll be looking for them. 

For example:

I'd LOVE to finally get a picture with the Sanin (Tsunade, Jiraiya and Orochimaru).  If a Jiraiya and Orochimaru would be so kind as to pose with this crazy Tsunade at the end of the gathering I would REALLY appreciate it.  Let me know.

@ruby19_4 ~ I feel your pain.  Not only is it harder to concentrate on work because my brain has moved into Fanime mode, but I have to work more hours to make sure my system will stay up and running while I'm away.  It's worth it in the end though.  :)

If you haven't had a Malt before you should definately try one.  I personally prefer a chocolate malt.  It's beyond words.

Hmmm. I see your point. That really could be difficult. Saa! Then I guess the pictures don't need any other things added to them! :) At least, not that I can think of.

And thanks. I'm sure it'll turn out, fine. I'm either going to have to find a new turtle neck to match the leotard and leggings I already have, or else find a new leotard and leggings. Taka. It's so frustrating. But at least I've got the costume, so if it comes down to it even though it's kinda... not 100% right looking I'll still be able to be Lee, at the very least.

Ohhh! And I definitely have people I want to find! I desperately want to find a Gaara! Like, for serious!!! I will search for Gaara with all my might and youthful spirit! Yosha!

I'd also really like to find a Kimimaro, if there's one there. I hope so. I don't think I've ever seen one before. Maybe I just missed him the last couple of years. But I'd really like to find one for pictures!

Oh! And a Gai-sensei to do the Nice Guy pose with!!!!!! That's very important too! And a Tenten would be awesome! 

Etto... sou. Those are the only ones I think.

I don't really know the Bacchikoi dance xD but I can dance!

I've never had a malt(I had every look it up)... i may have to drag Orochimaru with me to try one as well.
Working and moving while fanime is only a few weeks away is indeed difficult (as well as trying to keep the cosplay items for getting packed)

@ Eeri-chan ~ Fountains in front sounds fine to me for meeting up.  Let's see how everyone else feels.  I'll figure out a way to identify the group closer to the convention.  A sign is either small enough to carry around easily but hard to see or big enough to see and too big to carry around easily.  Let's think about it some.  We have some time to work out the details. 

Sorry about your cosplay challenges.  I'm sure it will be great when you are done.  :) 

Regarding the Akatsuki vs "good" ninja shot.  It's a good idea.  And without going into spoiler territory it's hard for me to explain why this seems logistically very difficult.  I think we would do best to save this for fan, photographer, fellow cosplayer requested photo's at the end of the gathering. I'll stick around with the bullhorn for a few minutes to help pull together bigger groups if we need them.  As a suggestion it would be good to start posting on here if you want specific cosplayers to pose for any pictures.  Give them a heads up that you'll be looking for them. 

For example:

I'd LOVE to finally get a picture with the Sanin (Tsunade, Jiraiya and Orochimaru).  If a Jiraiya and Orochimaru would be so kind as to pose with this crazy Tsunade at the end of the gathering I would REALLY appreciate it.  Let me know.

Have I mentioned that you guys are the best?  I can't WAIT for the convention this year.  Counting down the days.  :)

I got the rest of the prizes for BINGO and UNO today.  Gotta say I'm not as impressed as I had hoped to be.  I'm going to keep looking for some other stuff.  However, I did get some L.E.D. light up lolipop rings for prizes that actually seem to be really cool.  I think you guys will like them (and some of the other stuff too). 

Happy Thursday guys and gals!  Keep the excitement going, Fanime is just around the corner!!

I might be able to make it Sunday, unsure though... It all depends on how much my parents are willing to put up with a couple crazy fans over the weekend x3

If I do show up, I'll be cosplaying as Deidara, and bringing a friend as Itachi!  :D

I'm unfamiliar with the area, so hopefully I can find everyone alright :-X

You don't need to know how to play.  There will be a "leader" who will tell you where to move.  They're the one playing the game, we are pieces on the board.  Don't worry, it'll be fun.   ;D

@Snorcat ~ It really depends on what you want to participate in.  Here's the quasi-official schedule (don't be surprised if we have a few changes)

9:30 - 11:45 Cosplay Checkers.  We can take part in most games.  Sign up in advance is appreciated but not required.  If you show up we'll do our best to include you.

11:30 (ish) Bacchikoi dancing with Moogleborg (hopefully to be included in the regular gathering some)

12:00 (noon) - 1:00 Official Naruto Gathering with photos  (I've got the list around here somewhere...look back a page or so on this thread to see it).

1:00 - ?  (no later than 2:45) Naruto Picnic at Cheasar Chavez Plaza.  Open to everyone cosplay or not.  Come one, come all, come join us for lunch and fun. Bring your own lunch but feel free to bring extra to share.  Games will be played.  Prizes will be won.  Fun will be had.

3:00 - 3:30 Shonen Jump Gathering with photos (Naruto is part of Shonen Jump).  ANIME BINGO will be played some here as well.

Depending on how things go there may also be a formal dinner or gathering at the Black and White Ball that night as well...though I haven't heard from the organizer recently.

That's 6+ hours of Naruto events and fun.  Good Gravy!  Basically, we have things going on all day long.  Stay as long as you like, leave when you must.  You're more than welcome to be a part of the tom-foolery.   :D

You do not have to take part in everything.  Let's be clear on that.  If you show up to an event late no one will be mad at you or give you grief.  If you leave early that's fine too.  I would suggest trying to be on time to Gatherings because the group photos are taken first and that gives you a good impression of how large the group really is.  

If you have questions before the convention feel free to ask.  If you have questions at the convention I'll be the chick dressed as Tsunade with a big 'ol bull horn, just scream "BrightHeart!" or "Tsunade!" or "Chrissy!" and I will respond.

@Everyone.  Make sure to thank EJAY420 when you see him.  He has gone above and beyond working on getting us a banner for the gathering!  One of my group picture dreams come true!  WooHoo!!!!

This year will be the best year yet!  Mark my words.   ;D   ;D

I'm not kidding when I say this year is going to be the best ever.  I can hardly wait.   ;D

EDIT:  By the way the first post is updated with this quasi-official schedule and the official photo list.  We're up to 68 cosplayers!  I don't know if we'll reach our goal of 100 cosplayers on the list...just a reminder if we do reach the goal I will bring candy for everyone...sweet, sweet CANDY.   :P

hmm...ok here's the deal.  I estimate at most 20 cosplayers who will show up to the Gathering but not be on the list.  So here's the deal.  I will provide candy if we reach 80 on the list since that would be 100 cosplayers in the group if we get 20 unannounced cosplayers at the gathering. 

So your new goal is at least 80 total cosplayers on the list...that's 12 more than we currently have on the list by 8:00 p.m. Thursday May 27th 2010.

Sugoi! I can't wait! I wish I could make it to more stuff. I highly doubt that I'd be able to switch out of my CCS cosplay in time for the Shonen Jump gathering though. :( Oh, well.

Oh, and what about the Pirates v Ninjas gathering??? I guess that's not really a part of all this stuff, ne?

hmm...ok here's the deal.  I estimate at most 20 cosplayers who will show up to the Gathering but not be on the list.  So here's the deal.  I will provide candy if we reach 80 on the list since that would be 100 cosplayers in the group if we get 20 unannounced cosplayers at the gathering.

Oh!!! I have another friend, Kato-chan, who I pestered into coming as Tenten yesterday (and by pester, I mean I said "wouldn't it be cool if you came as a Naruto character!?!"). She's saying "probably" but it's more like a "definitely." She just needs to order the outfit! I'm so excited!!! -squee-

If my friend finishes his costume in time, he will cosplay as Shippuuden! Sasuke for the gathering. I won't be in the gathering but I'm signing my friend up since he doesn't have an account and it's his first time cosplaying. I'll be supporting from the sideline taking pictures.

Sweet, Prizes xD haha, I probably won't play much games out of low-attention-span, but I wouldn't mind helping around if you need it, BrightHeart :3 So if theres anything you might need help on, just tell me. I might also have leftover candy from my Pokemon Gathering. If I do, I'll come and share.

<333 But as long as I make a friend and don't get eaten alive by crowds, I'll try my best to be there with My Sakura, and maybe some random ninja. Depends on if I know people at fanime that I go to school with that I can text. xD haha. I didn't get to really stay last time because I was almost eaten. Plus Low-attention-span. :D But I'll attempt again cause this sounds fun :3

Thanks for the offer for help.  I think things are going to be pretty smooth on Sunday.  I'll let you know if I need some help.   ;D

I'm really only worried about one thing.  I don't want to mention it because it's one of those things that might get exasperated if I bring it up and might be a non-issue if I don't bring it up.  Just have to hope for the best and trust that people will have fun.   :D

We've got lots of really friendly people this year, you shouldn't have any problem finding a friend.   :D  I am so proud of our group this year.  I can't wait for the convention.  It's going to be fantastic!

19 days till Fanime!!!  Holy Cow!  See y'all soon!

Just got back from the store, and it turns out my checker will be going to the gathering as Itachi! He was so adorable! We shared a high-fives at the awesomeness that is Fanime. :3

So, should we add Random K-Mart Guy (since I can't remember his name) to the list? :D

... Oh! Add my friend Catherine to the list for sure! She's going as Sasuke (Akatsuki version, I believe).

Yay for more people!

OK guys and gals new poll is up.  Please vote for when you think we should meet up on Friday for the "Meet and Eat" at Pita Pit.  This will only be up for a few days as I want to finalize our schedules and events, so make sure you vote.   :D

We seem to have scared off the Bleach team for checkers.  Cause we are so very awesome.   :D  As an alternative what do you guys think of having a Naruto vs. Naruto game?  It could be Original vs. Shippuden or Good vs. Evil or Leaf vs. Other village...or just about anything.  What do you guys think?  We need more players if we're going to pull this off.  So let me know.  :D

@Chosen_Entity ~ I love that your K-Mart Checker will be there.  lol.  I'll be happy to add him to the list if for no other reason than to have "Random K-Mart Guy" as a cosplayer on the list.  I'll update the list either later today or tomorrow.

I'm still a bit confused on the checkers thing though. Does anyone have a link to a site that explains it please? I have failed in finding it, but from what I've read, it sounds like fun! xD

If were are going to play form around 9:30 to around 11:30 (not quite sure about times), then why don't we have multiple themes? Goo vs. evil, different villages (missing nins are either form Akastuki or original village), or people pick. Just imagine the funniness for the last one. One side has maybe some sharingan people. Basically anything goes. Which leaves much room for funny randomness :D.

Alrighty!  We're updated again.  73 cosplayers on the list now.  That's just 7 more if you guys want candy.   ;D

Here's a link to the page about cosplay checkers.  I'm not sure if this will answer all of your questions, let me know if there's anything I can help with.  http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,13720.0.html

While I love the idea of multiple crazy Naruto match ups this event is for all of the Shonen Jumpers.  :)

The Game list is as follows

1st game: Anyone Shonen Jump
2nd game: Naruto vs ? (This is our opportunity to take the board since Bleach doesn't appear to have a team)
3rd game: Shonen Jump vs. Other cosplayers
The 4th and 5th games will only happen if we have time and I don't think there is a current matching for them.  I believe BSaphire wants to keep them open for people to join at the convention if we have time for these games.

Make sure to sign up here and on the Shonen Jump Checkers page ( http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,13720.0.html ) if you're interested in participating.  If we're going to do the whole board on the second game we'll need A LOT of checkers pieces.  It'll be a blast though...just imagine the pictures!!!!

One more piece of business.  I was asked why we're doing the group photo first.  I have a few reasons, primary among them is that several people have said they won't be able to stay for the whole photoshoot part of the gathering.  I plan to keep the group photo first.  However, what do you guys think about doing a second group photo...this one in the battle pose I asked about, but do that group photo at the end?  This way any late comers have a chance to be in a group photo AND people with special requests have an easier time finding the people they want to get pictures with.  Let me know what you think.  As always creative solutions and ideas are more than welcome.

Happy Monday everybody!

So, I totally did the stupidest thing. I accidentally shipped my wigs for Fanime to my old address! I found out yesterday and freaked out. I had to rush out the door and head to my old appartement. Luckily! The person was there and had the first wig to arrive still! I gave him my number so that when my Lee wig arrives, he can call me and I can go get it! Phew!

Seriously, I am so lucky! :) I was gonna cry if my wigs had been thrown away or something.

I have got an amazing headache tonight.  So I will do more updates tomorrow.  There is currently a two way tie with a close third on the poll.  If you haven't voted yet, make sure you do soon.  Also, if you are partial to a certain time make your voice heard.

2 weeks until Day Zero!  It's almost Fanime people!!  WooHoo!!!

Is everyone ready?  Cosplays just about done?  Practicing your poses (remember one serious and one silly for each group plus an extra battle pose for the final group photo)?  Ready for Checkers?  Dancing?  The Picnic?  This year is going to be great!!!

Onto the Meet and Eat.  Currently we have a tie with 4 votes each for 4:00 and 5:30, 4:30 comes in as a close second with 3 votes.  If we don't have a tie breaker by tomorrow evening I'll Make a new poll with just those time for the weekend.  I will finalize all plans for this event on Monday. 

See y'all soon!

Post by: BrightHeart76 on May 14, 2010, 05:26:25 PM
OK, first off let me say that I am beyond giddy that FLOW will be at Fanime.  I can not WAIT to see them in concert.

However, it does present us with a unique problem.  FLOW's concert is Friday.  I don't know the exact time yet, but musicfest events usually take place in the evening.  This would be in conflict with the Meet and Eat event.  We can go eat then get in line...but I worry that we'll be way at the back and I don't know about you all, but I really want decents seats for this.  So here's an alternative.  Why don't we all grab something to eat (brown bag, sandwich, fast food...whatever) meet somewhere and then get in line as a group.  That way we could all chat and bond in line while we eat and wait for an amazing show from a group that has given us so much great Naruto theme music.   :D

What do you all think?  As I see it these are our choices:

1. Still have the Meet and Eat.  When everyone is done they can go to Swap Meet, get in line or go their own merry way.  In this case we need someone to be the leader for this event because I can promise you I will be in line.

2. Alter the Meet and Eat so that everyone brings food to the line for FLOW.  There is some more coordination involved here but I personally think it's worth it.  I could bring the Naruto UNO cards to play while we're in line, maybe even some of the prizes.  People not going to the show can still join those of us in line and leave when they want to.

3. Alter the Meet and Eat in such a way that it doesn't overlap with such a large event.  I'm really not sure how this woudl work since this year seems to be full of large / amazing events. 

4. Something I haven't thought of...as always creative solutions are more than welcome.

Talk.  Debate.  Be heard.  We need to make a decision ASAP so that people can get planning.  Two weeks from right now...most of us will be at Fanime!  WOHOO!

@robina ~ I'm sorry I don't know how many photographers will be there.  They dont' sign up in advance.  Most cosplayers are either taking photos themselves or have friends / family in the crowd taking photos.  We also usually have fans of the series, and a few professionals taking photos.  Last year was impressive because at the end of the Gathering Mamoi came out and requested a photo with all of the cosplayers, so we had a huge photo with all of the cosplayers outside at that time...that one had a TON of photographers.  I don't know if anything like that will happen again.

I have a few opinions that will only work if so and so happens.  At the moment, not everyone knows what time they will be doing what. The schedule isn't out yet. So my ideas depend on the times. So here are my plans:

1. Have the Meet and Eat and then go in line. I.E.: I may or may not see FLOW, but I'll have fun hanging out with people in line. :D
2. Change the Meet and Eat time to earlier, and then afterwords people can go see FLOW.
3. (*warning, crazy idea*) make another (we'll have two then) Meet and Eat in the morning or at lunch on Saturday or Sunday? I know its crazy, but if some people can't make it to the Friday one, there could be other times.

Thoughts please :)

ahg damnit.... of all the time for FLOW to show up...
I guess I'd rather skip the meet and eat to get a decent spot.

But I like Roth's idea, not having two meets, but reschedule for lunch, or something on Saturday.
All bringing food while in line would work to, just would need a lot of more planning.

Wish we had a more detailed schedule of events -_-

Post by: TokenBlackGuy on May 14, 2010, 09:31:35 PM
depending on what time, everyone who wants to get in line. TO what time everyone wants to do the meet and greet. SO if its earlier then earlier, if its later then later. Hopfully we should at least get the food then go wait in line, so we can all meet and chat.
Title: Re: With The Will Of Fire! Naruto Gathering 2010! SCHEDULE AND PHOTO LIST POSTED
Post by: BrightHeart76 on May 14, 2010, 11:38:54 PM
Great ideas roth!  How about this for a way to work it. 

Meet and Eat #1 everyone meet up to get in line (we'll set a time once more information is known) bring food if you want to eat in line.  We could / should probably change the title of this mini-event to "FLOW Line up Gathering" or some other such insanity.  I can bring some games and such to keep us occupied.  (Though brining your own hand helds and entertainment would be good too.)

Meet and Eat #2 Saturday morning at say 9:00 (or whatever time is agreed upon) meet at the coffee place outside of the Hilton (it used to be a Starbucks...I guess it changed ownership since last year).  We can all get our daily dose of caffeine and sugary breakfast food and have a chance to meet our fellow fans.  This would probably maintain the title "Meet and Eat".  Alternatively I THINK there's a little bakery / breakfast place near the convention center ... just not sure where it is.  Of course both places usually offer healthier alternatives (fruit and yogurt and tea an such) so everyone should be able to participate. 

Just an idea...change at will.   :D

I think we'd be fine with both events.  Give me just a little bit (no more than 24 hours) to start pulling the details together.  Keep the ideas coming!

Oh!  By the way...I got some more prizes that would be fun to have at the concert.  So if we meet up for the line gathering I've got lots of fun stuff.   ;D

Aww, I'm sad I'll miss the concert. I guess it doesn't matter that the meet and eat was scheduled for 5:30, which is ridiculously late for someone who has to get to the swap meet, since we do have to get there by six if we're selling stuff. :/ But I guess I can make it for a short while to hang out.

Still, that sucks that I'll miss the band. :(

Hello everyone,

Sorry this post is a little late coming out. So as Brightheart said, I am in charge of the Naruto meeting on Saturday. Now I need to know if this is a breakfast meeting or simply a lunch one.

Breakfast option:
The time we would meet would be at around 10 or 9. Not to early not too late. There are two options for where to grab out much needed caffeine ;D. Caffe Trieste, which is on the side of the Marriot, or, Starbucks on the side of the Hilton. Both are around the same distance. Just depends on what people want.

Lunch option:
A 11, 12, or 1 lunch time sounds good. We would basically have the same choices, on were to eat, as we did for the Naruto dinner meet up a.k.a Flow line meet up.

So I will have at least 2 polls coming up soon on what we want. If there is ANYTHING you want to add or clear up PM me or respond on the forum. I check the forum a lot in one day. This is OUR meeting. I just organize it  ;D

New poll up.  Just for fun.   ;D

Are you guys all ready for Fanime?  What are you looking forward to the most at Fanime this year?

Edit: I didn't finish typing the sentence!  I'm losing my mind I tell you!  Losing my mind! ::insert crazy mad scientist laugh here::

Okay everyone, sorry about all the confusion. We are on for the meeting on Saturday, except that it will be a breakfast meeting. A LOT of people have PMed me and asked for a breakfast time. Most of the gatherings start at noon and others want to practice for the Masquerade. So Brightheart and I thought a morning gathering would be best. So the options for breakfast are the same as last time.

"Breakfast option:
The time we would meet would be at around 10 or 9. Not to early not too late. There are two options for where to grab our much needed caffeine ;D. Caffe Trieste, which is on the side of the Marriot, or, Starbucks on the side of the Hilton. Both are around the same distance. Just depends on what people want."

I will have a post up this evening or tomorrow about what time we want and where. Please remember if you have a suggestion or a problem, PLEASE tell me. I want everyone to have fun. Have a nice day :). Fanime is in 13 days!!!!!

So. YEAH. I'm typing this with a weird grin on my face. I recently found out about this convention which is about 2 or so hours from where I live in California. So I found the forums and found this and was like "OMG HOW NEAT". So I rushed and talked[more or so begged] my mom into taking me to it. Then talked her into getting me the fabric for my costume. Which is going to be made this weekend. BUT YEAH. I'm pretty much fer sure coming as Pein's second animal path[the female one] ;D, unless you know a giant dino crushes my mother's car. But I'm really looking forward to going to my first convention with you guys.  :-X. I might only be able to make it sunday though!

The only thing that has changed is the meet and eat.  And that only changed because of the FLOW concert.  I think roth14 is doing a wonderful job reorganizing it as a breakfast.  Eeri-chan, you'd have to check with roth14, but if CLAMP can meet at the same place, maybe you could do both?  Just an idea.

Our Sunday schedule remains unchanged.  I'm just waiting for a final OK from Moogleborg on the time and place for the Bacchikoi dance and a quick look at the final Fanime schedule once it comes out to lock it down.

Relax.  This will be great!  You are all awesome and have worked so hard to create a great gathering and events for everyone.  This is your Gathering, these are your events.  I'm just here to keep it all together.

It's almost Fanime!  Woohoo!

I know what you mean! I had to send my compression shirt back in because it was too small. :/ Hopefully the replacement will get here before the con! (Sincerely hope so, since the company is only in Florida) I really don't want to bind. Ace wrap is eeeevvviiilll...

If it makes you feel better, I ordered stuff from a China based company, and it only took a week to get here!

LOL.  Don't be sorry!  Be happy you get to make it for the day!  You're coming on the most important day of all don't you know?  Naruto-cosplay-gathering-checkers-dancing-picnic-fun day (as I've come to call it).   ;D

I only came for one day my first time.  I was so bummed once I experience all of the excitement Fanime had to offer.  But I made sure to be there more the next year.  Have fun with the day, experience everything you can.  If you have questions or need help this is a GREAT group of people with lots of experience.  I'm always open for questions if you want to ask me, I'll be the chick in the Tsunade cosplay with a bullhorn and a look on my face like I'm about to lose my mind.  Just yell "BrightHeart!" or "Tsunade" or "Chrissy" and I will try to help as much as I can.   :)

Hi everyone (who is coming to the Naruto Breakfast Thingy),

I found out from Brightheart that Starbucks is actually Pete's now. It seems like practically the same stuff, just different name. If people (plural) has a HUGE problem with this please PM me. I can ask Brightheart to put up a new poll.

Cool beans!  We have the needed information to actually plan anything for Friday!  Thank you jemz, the information is much appreciated.   ;D

So...with just over a week to go do we want to try and plan some kind of line meet up?  Everyone's schedules for Friday are kind of all over the place.  Most people have work and / or school that day.  Some, like myself, are off that day and plan to be there early.  

I just thought of this alternative...tell me what you all think.  I will post a picture of myself here soon, people who find me in line get a prize (I got some specifically for the concert).  After the concert we could all meet up back at the convention center to either hit the swap meet (where many of our fellow cosplayers will be) or just hang out and chat for a little bit.  

Does that work?  Not work?  Needs work?  Let me know what you all think.  

I am so excited for Fanime this year!  We're going to have a BLAST!   ;D

On another note, 9 at Starbucks/Pete (whatever it is now ???) wins!!!!! Expect a poll soon of where to meet up before going there though. :)

No worries.  Yes there is a special line.  If you get confused stop and ask a staff member, they'll point you the right way. 

I'll start thinking about when to line up, do you guys have any suggestions?

That means it started to ship now. That could take a while. I would only buy one if you can guarantee it before the con. Like rush shipping. Or you can do what I did. Run to the dealers' hall and buy one there.

Oh yeah. The Breakfast meeting is any cosplay optional. If you want to come in Naruto, cool. If you want to come in Final Fantasy, that's also cool. Just wanted to make that sure that everyone knew :).

Well, in theory it means they're getting ready to ship it. However, when I checked my order, it said the same thing, and I got it later that afternoon... :/ Took about 9 days total for me.

I plan to get in line at least an hour before the doors open, depending on the line by then. Maybe level up my PKMN >>

You welcome to join me. xD I still need to get you back for beating me at work -_-

YOU WILL NOT WIN. :D I'll totally be there! Call me when you head over to the line!

It's the request of the band. I personally think it's disrespectful to try and take a picture of the band or film them when they've asked not to have cameras.

Just as an FYI, there will be a bag check. If you have a camera, you won't get into the Civic.  If you take pictures with your phone during the concert, you will be escorted out.

What is your problem? Really? What's the deal? Your mom not hug you enough when you were a kid?

Follow the rules or be escorted out. I have plenty of staff to catch photography, and during An Cafe, I have personally escorted dozens of people out. You think this is a laughing matter? Haha, I'm not laughing. Their management has specifically asked for no photography, which is a policy I will enforce. It is very disrespectful to be acting so childish.

Post by: BrightHeart76 on May 20, 2010, 02:05:23 PM
Thank you roth14, I just got back and saw that little conversation. 

Ladies and gentlemen, I mean it when I say that I am amazed by you and how you treat each other.  I hope you share the same spirit of excitement and respect at the con that I have seen on this thread for most of the year. 

I want to say to you the same things I've said to my students, not because I think of any of you like students, but because I concider all of you friends and I want to share this philosophy with you.  "Don't do the right thing because you'll get in trouble for doing the wrong thing.  Do the right thing because it's right."  Some times it's an ethical or moral debate to decide what is "right" in a situation, and in those times we use our experiences and the advice of people we respect to decide.  In this case, in my opinion, "right" is very easy.  A group of artists is coming across the ocean to perform at our convention.  They are traveling farther than any member of our group (that I know of).  They have asked that we not take pictures.  It is very easy to identify that the right thing to do here is not try to take pictures. 

Please, I'm begging you all, don't try to circumvent the rules.  Don't push the limits on this.  While you personally may be willing to accept the concequences, it will reflect on us all. 

I'm not mad at anyone.  I just feel strongly that I needed to say that.

OK...I'm done with my rant. 

On an up note I realized just a few minutes ago that a week from right now I should be arriving at the Hilton to begin my Fanime weekend!!  Woohoo!!  So close!

We still need to discuss Friday, so ideas and thoughts....bring 'em on.

Also, I keep checking the weather...I'm a bit worried.  Unless things change (and I am hoping they change) Fanime weekend may be rainy.  This shouldn't be a huge problem.  Only really an issue for the picnic if the lawn is wet.  In advance of more reliable weather forecasts, start thinking of alternate ways we can do the picnic please.  I have an idea or two, but I'd really love to hear what you guys have to say.   :D

In relation to the picnic, does any hotel have an indoor pool or something? Or maybe a member's room, only as a last resort though. Don't want people going to strange rooms alone. Will it even fit us?

On the picnic note.  Most pools have a "no food or drinks" rule so I don't think that will work.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.  I actually do have 2 ideas, I'm just not sure how well they would work or who to talk to.  Keep the ideas coming guys!

Thank you for the offer!  Very nice of you.    :D

I just don't know where we could set it up honestly.  If you're thinking about setting it up at the fountains for the gathering BSaphire would be the person to talk to.  At the picnic, well if it's wet enough to need a tent odds are the ground will be too wet for people in cosplay to want to sit down.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.   :)

I have a feeling (based soley on hunch and not on any kind of fact) that if it does rain it will be sprinkling.  So for now I think our only real problem is the picnic.  I know there has to be a solution for that...still trying to think of one.  There are a lot of places around the outside of the convention center that I THINK are semi covered.  

I'd say we'd find a quiet corner in the convention center to hunker down and have our picnic, but I think there's a rule against bringing food into the convention center because they sell food there.  I'd love to be wrong cause that would solve our "maybe problem".  But I'm pretty sure about that rule.

My plan of attack for Fanime right now is "Be Prepared" but also hope for the best.   ;D

The problem with that is we can't do the games in a restaraunt.  I suppose I could just give the prizes away, but it would make me sad to put as many hours as I have into these games and not at least try to play them.  I'll compile a list of ideas, this one included, when Fanime gets closer we'll keep our eyes on the weather and if it's going to be yucky I'll put up a poll with all of the ideas.  So keep the ideas coming and we'll make a decision when we know more about the weather.   :D

There is a lot of table in the convention. We could have lunch and play games at the same time. Or we could try to find a secret place. We need to ask someone who is familiar with the place. There should be some quiet place. I keep seeing people taking picture at a quiet place.

We're updated again.  We're at 75 cosplayers on the list...5 more to reach our goal.  You know you guys know 5 more people who want to sign up for the gaterhing.   ;D

roth14 is doing really well organizing the breakfast gathering.  Remember to vote in the poll for where to meet that morning.

Friday.  Here is how I see this going down.  I plan to be in line early.  Like, my sister and I have cleared Friday for FLOW...so once the line starts we're going to head over.  If anyone wants to meet as a group to line up together I can help you organize it, but I plan to be in line much earlier than most people will be able to arrive. 

I do, however, have some fun glow toys for the concert (and some for the games on Sunday too).  I will post a picture of me in what I plan to wear on Friday once I get myself more together.  I will have a certain number of glow toys with me, I will give those out to people who find me in line until I run out of toys.  It's like "Where's Waldo" but I'll stare at you if you call me Waldo and I won't be wearing a stripped shirt.   ;D

After we all enjoy the concert we can do a quick meet up so that everyone knows who's who in the Naruto group.  From there we can go check out the swapmeet, video rooms, stage zero...what have you.  Or go off on our own.  I'm going to say we'll meet at the convention center, downstairs by the stairs on the right hand side at 10 o'clock.  Since the concert is supposed to end around 9, this gives everyone a chance to exit safely, change clothes if they want to, relax for 5 minutes and then head over.  I will be there with my BrightHeart Plushie, so I will be easily identifiable.   

Does that work for everyone?  Let me know, we can make changes.

A week from right now most of us will be at Fanime!  Woohoo!  Get those cosplays finished guys!  It is almost time!

You don't have to be in costume to come.  You are just as welcome in street clothes as you are in costume.  You can't do checkers or photos out of costume, but dancing the picnic and the games at the picnic will still be open to you. 

Also, if time gets too tight I have a Leaf village headband you can borrow.  You can make a pretty decent "random leaf ninja" outfit out of every day clothes.  I could lend you the headband and you'd then be able to take part in the photos too.  Just an idea.  Let me know.  :)

Tehehe. You're so kind. I cut my hair last week to go as Pein's second animal path. I refuse to wear wigs so yeah it had to be done! So I'm going to go as Pein's second animal path if I have to stay up all night to work on my costume and have no sleep during the convention. I just hope my mother doesn't riding in the car with me being super cranky. Two and a half hours in a small space could be some problems! xD. This would be my first convention so I kinda want to do it right and cosplay at it. =] But I'm not so good at checkers haha, so I don't think I will be playing those.

Ugh, so a bill hit that my mother wasn't thinking about at the time. And therefore is out of money - but she gets paid next saturday so it's going to be a major push to finish my costume in a single day. x.x' But she said we can go if the costume is done. So I hope we can finish it and my stupid headband comes soon!

Okay, so basically this is either called cosplay chess or checkers. Two people play an actual game and yell out to the pieces (us) where to move. We the pieces kill, take, attack, etc... in a move that fits our character or something we like to do. :D

That's a tough one.  My gut reaction would be to try using black eraser tips (light, cheap and easy to find) and some spirit gum.  I think the spirit gum would adhere to eraser rubber, but I'm not 100% sure. 

Anyone else have any ideas?

Eraser tips or just drawing spots on with a strong marker. I've looked it up and this is the best option on short notice.

It's okay! I think we might super glue it to my face, lol. I didn't want to go out and buy the black erasers so I just colored white erasers black with sharpie. They actually came out pretty good looking. And it only cost my finger getting stained black for the day - yay. I'm still so excited, it's causing me to become super hyper. XD

Hi all!  Incase you didn't notice the scheuld for Fanime is up on the first page.  Here's a link.  The file is a PDF so you'll need Adobe reader to open it.

http://www.fanime.com/docs/2010-schedule.pdf

Notice there is a some great stuff going on.  I personally love that the blurb for cosplay gatherings specifically mentions Naruto.  lol.  We also know when events like the FLOW Q&A is, when the Sweet 16 party is...all of the good stuff. 

Wow...this means Fanime is almost here!  YAY!!!  I was out getting the last pieces I need for my cosplays and such today.  I just need to do some laundry and pack..then I'm done!  Ready to go!  See you guys in a few days!

(PS...I bought candy just incase...but try to find 5 more cosplayers anyway)

In other news.  I am going to lock down the schedule of Events for Naruto tomorrow.  If anyone needs to change something... let me know or I can't make any changes.  

If I don't hear from Moogleborg before then I'm going to take Dancing off of the schedule.  (I'll make an exception for him if I hear from him by Wednesday and add it back on, he's been trying to do this event for two years and I'd hate to miss it.)

Please take a look thru the schedule on the first page, let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  

The weather is looking better, so with any luck we won't need to scramble on Sunday to avoid the rain.   ;D

As far as I can tell The Sweet 16 is super limited and tickets will only be given away at certain events.  I think the Rum Party is open to all...but I could be wrong about that. 

What events will have tickets for the Sweet 16 I don't know.

The Rum Party is on Friday, 8pm-2am. There's an error in the pocket guide for the date and times. You don't need a ticket to go an play at the Rum Party, just show your badge and have some fun!

I can't imagine that they would be doing autographs Friday night at the concert.  Too many fans, too much confusion.

However, page 8 of the schedule does list FLOW in the Marriott Salon 1:2 at 1:00 on Saturday.  I don't know if this is a Q&A or an autograph thing or something else entirely.  You could try contacting the musicfest peoples to see if they can give you any details.  That or show up at the Marriott Salon on Saturday and see what happens.   ;D

EDIT:  I just remembered, you mentioned before that you will only be there on Sunday.  So this isn't much help for you.  Hmm... I suppose our first step is to find out if Saturday is infact an autograph session, and then if it IS find someone willing to stand in line for you.  I'll e-mail the music fest peoples now, I'll let you know when I have an answer about whatever is happening on Saturday.

I changed my mind about cosplaying Hinata at this year's gathering.  Sorry, Brightheart.  I know you wanted more people to sign up for the gathering - and I'm not helping. :(

I'm cutting back on the number of costumes that I'm bringing to Fanime - and I'm wearing a different (non-Naruto) costume on the day of the gathering.  But I'll definitely stop by the gathering to take pictures.  And I might go the Naruto picnic, instead.

If you want to go and you just need shoes give your local second hand store a try.  You can usually get a decent pair of dress shoes for less than $10.  I got my formal dress at a second hand store for $7.50 this year.

Just wanted to make an observation.  Fanime is this week.  THIS WEEK!!!

When you talk about Fanime for the next couple of days you don't have to say "It's in May" or "Friday after next" or "It's Memorial Day Weekend" when telling people about Fanime.  No.  You get to say "It's in a couple of days" or "Yeah, I'll be there on Thursday" or something else equally as great.   ;D

Also, quick reminder to anyone interested in playing cosplay checkers.  It starts at 9:30, sp make sure you plan time to come down and play on Sunday!! 

72 hours from now I will be on the road to Fanime.  WOOHOOO!!!!

So....no one gets to laugh at me.  I HATE taking pictures of myself, I hate posting them even more.  That being said here are a couple of pictures so that you know who to look for in line at the FLOW concert.  Remember, for as long as supplies last people who find me in line and say that they are from the Naruto Group get a glow stick toy for the concert.  You can also come get one if you're not going to the concert but just want a glow stick toy. 

That being said....

(http://i223.photobucket.com/albums/dd134/SlrSparks/face2jpg.jpg)
^ This one you can see some of the shirt I'll be wearing.  Odds are I'll have a black hoodie overtop...so that probably won't be much help...but just incase.

(http://i223.photobucket.com/albums/dd134/SlrSparks/Facejpg.jpg)
^ Slightly better picture of my face.

^This is the BrightHeart plushie I'll have with me people meet at 10 that night for a quick "get to know your fellow Naruto cosplayer" thing-a-ma-jobber.

Hope that helps. 

Also, if you see me at the convention feel free to stop me and say "hi".   ;D  Just a couple of days until Day Zero.  I'm starting to countdown hours instead of days.   ;D

So....no one gets to laugh at me.  I HATE taking pictures of myself, I hate posting them even more.  That being said here are a couple of pictures so that you know who to look for in line at the FLOW concert.  Remember, for as long as supplies last people who find me in line and say that they are from the Naruto Group get a glow stick toy for the concert.  You can also come get one if you're not going to the concert but just want a glow stick toy. 

That being said....

^ This one you can see some of the shirt I'll be wearing.  Odds are I'll have a black hoodie overtop...so that probably won't be much help...but just incase.

(http://i223.photobucket.com/albums/dd134/SlrSparks/Facejpg.jpg)
^ Slightly better picture of my face. 

(http://i223.photobucket.com/albums/dd134/SlrSparks/brightheartjpg.jpg)
^This is the BrightHeart plushie I'll have with me people meet at 10 that night for a quick "get to know your fellow Naruto cosplayer" thing-a-ma-jobber.

Hope that helps. 

Also, if you see me at the convention feel free to stop me and say "hi".   ;D  Just a couple of days until Day Zero.  I'm starting to countdown hours instead of days.   ;D

Very lovely pics! :)

Extra top of what?

From reading his posts I think he is going for a Anbu
"Add me into the Naruto group as anbu ninja plz."
"I want to try and have the awesomeness anbu costume possible. Ill dream : p"
"If possible put me under the Naruto group as an Anbu Black Ops. I know it wont be all that  as a main char but id like to be in photos"
"I'm almost thinking of making the vest for anbu if anyone knows where i can geta tutorial for making one from."
"I'd be interested, ill be oging as an ANbu Black Ops."

There are a few more pages I haven't read but Idk it was on a different forum.

Hi everyone!

So this is for all of the people coming to the Breakfast meet up. I am uploading a picture of myself in the wig I will be wearing. This way you can all find me :). No teasing please. The lightening is bad and I have circles under my eyes from studying for finals.

*Face palm*

1. I was in an acting troupe. We switch clothes and genders all the time so my thinking is weird.

2. You are so lucky I most of my friends are guys. For now I am used to that type of humor :P.

Still, stop it.

Dramatic and Tragic is fine, so long as the drama and tragedy aren't caused by people crying over destroyed cosplays.  Not to mention, some of the better dramatic shots I've seen at Fanime where actually night time shots.  The lighting outside of the convention center is odd, and with a good photographer I've seen some amazing photos.

No problem. We'll go over the specifics on Saturday :).

I just think there is no way that that pants will fit you. They are tight pants that are even tight for me. And they have a girl cut not a guy cut. Sorry :(.

Tomorrow!  Tomorrow!  Day Zero's Tomorrow!  It's only a day awaaaayyyy!!!  (Had to have an "Annie" moment...moving on now).

I will make my last planned updates tonight.  I doubt I'll have time to update the cosplay list, but I really only have that for counts sake, everyone is welcome wether they're on the list or not.  I estimate that our total list count is about 78 right now.  A touch short of our stated goal of 80 for candy.  However, I already bought the candy and I sure as shootin' don't want 100 tootsie pops, so I'll give candy out just cause you're all awesome and keep proving it to me on here every day.   ;D

Keep up the great level of excitement guys.  It's nearly Fanime.  And this year's Fanime promises to be one of the best I've ever seen.  Great music, great events, awesome gatherings with fantastic people...yeah Fanime 2010 is going to be AMAZING.

There's no such thing as an unnecessarily large weapon, just "large," "extra large," and "larger than yours." Pretty sure I remember you, tho'.

That's too large for the car, I'll give you that. As weapons go, "too large" is impossible, but cars cannot fully understand the awesomeness of large weapons, and thus can't adjust themselves to accommodate the weapons. Foolish cars. I WILL DESTROY YOU!

Ladies and Gentlemen.  Take a bow.  You did it.  With a last minute rush of cosplayers you have successfully reached 80 cosplayers on the list.  WOHOO!!  I estimate at least 20 people will be there that have not signed up here, so we should probably see another 100 + person gathering this year.  Why?  Cause you guys rock.  Your candy is already in the car.

This is the last "official" update for the Naruto Gathering 2010.  The schedule is set.  Our list has been updated for the last time (though more people are welcome to sign up I will not be adding more names to the list).  We are locked and ready to go!  Woohoo!!

For people going to Day Zero, I'll see you in a few HOURS.  (Holy cow I have to be on the road in 8 hours). 

For people going to FLOW on Friday, you know how to find me.  I have 23 glow toys waiting to be given away.  Don't forget to meet up after the concert too. 

Saturday we have our great breakfast event, thanks to roth14.

And Sunday...well Sunday we're going to Rock Fanime's socks off with our awesomeness and 6 solid hours of Naruto events and fun.   

Monday is Anime BINGO at Stage Zero, so please come join us.

I'll keep up with the forum thru Fanime so keep posting and let me know if anything comes up.  Keep up the great work guys!  You have already made this Fanime so amazing.  Can't wait to get it started!
