I'll have my new D.Gray stuff done next year (and the time to wear it -- ohgodtoomanycosplays!), Murphy willing.  I've got plans for both Komui and finishing up my halfway-done pre-Exorcist Miranda, so hopefully can turn up in one of those.  :3

YAY~! Peoples! xDD; *feeling KINDA hyper today*

I'm going to try and be Allen Walker....but....I'll probably miss it again. XD

Lol, at least you try xDD

Really random, but speaking of Komui. . . we saw one by the fountains at the time of the D.Gray-man gathering, but he was being anti-social and wouldn't come over and join the group TT^TT so we actually ended up with only one (or two) Komuis this year. I actually saw. . . zero. xD; But I heard there were a couple or so running around.

Also, Charis, you look kinda familiar o.o Did I see you at the Campaign Cosplay Chess game, or was that another Unohana?
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: ToshiX on June 08, 2008, 11:21:56 PM
Well I'll try to come
If I make Fanime 09
I'm hoping on doing Crown Clown Omega ^ ^
Unless Allen gets a more AWESOME Transformation which I doubt

Komuis should not be antisocial unless they are sulking about Linali growing up and dating.  :D

Also, Charis, you look kinda familiar o.o Did I see you at the Campaign Cosplay Chess game, or was that another Unohana?

Um ... maybe?  I was in two Cosplay Chess games at Fanime, both as Unohana -- the Bleach one, and then the one on Sunday night -- but I'm not sure if either of those is what you're referring to.

Post by: DivineChaos on June 09, 2008, 12:07:44 PM
Well, there's a chance that I'll go to the D.Gray Man Gathering, so might as well.  Going as Allen Walker in his initial Crowned Clown transformation and also as the same character with that buster sword looking thing.  Yesh.  Oh, I'll bring at least a Lavi, Komui or Miranda, Kanda, and Lenalee with me in a group.

I'm strongly considering cosplay Komui... but I'm not sure my friend wants to cosplay Rinali anymore >___<;; I'll have to wait and ask her (she's on vacation for a couple of months so I'll likely not know till mid-late August).

LOL xDD I believe it was the one on Sunday night, that was supposed to be at 8pm, until we learned that they'd played earlier >_< I was there as Allen Walker, the king on the black side.

Oh! Then yes, that was me as Captain Mom -- because mini!Byakuya demanded it of me earlier, and I didn't have the heart to turn her down.

Post by: yamaneko on June 10, 2008, 04:21:30 PM
Lol, you mean Yuu? xD; Yes, she was yelling at me for being on the black side. . . then followed up by saying, "Oh well, I will enjoy killing you." xDD

Hehehe, yes -- I don't remember what name she's going by here.  :3  I did threaten her with severe death (or worse) after she lost me without ever moving me -- because that was the SECOND chess game that had happened in at Fanime, and I did not approve.  :3

Gawd, I'm going to have WAY too many cosplays for Fanime '09 at this rate.

Ehe yea I even suprised myself with how bitchy I got with the game staff. But they were so cool about it.

And YOU were the one I kept trying to kill?! I had no idea the entire time. Why..WHY didn't I have my Kanda costume! That would have been amazing and you know it >D

Oh yea, sorry the game didn't go so well.  Since we were sitting on the ground neither of us could see who was who.

Oh and in 09 I WILL have my Kanda costume if the last damned thing I do. *Shakes fist*

I'm just gonna mock you forever for that, hon.  Never gonna hear the end of it ~

(PS, totally unrelated to any of this, but it sounds like I am a go for Captain Mom for Kumoricon.  Tige said if I ship my zanpakutou up to them they can bring it down, and he'll even bring his Shunsui cosplay and keep me company.)

... I'm not working on my D.Gray for next year yet.  Oh, AX, why are you so soon? *panic, flail*
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!

I wanna go to An-Ex so baaaaad~~ TT^TT Why does gas have to be so expensive??? Or rather, why does it have to be in SOUTHERN California??? >_____< *is a Fanime local*

I think 10 AM on Sunday (same as this year) would be okay; still have to figure out times and stuff. Also, Saphire-san hasn't changed the official list of gatherings to 2009 yet, so nothing can be decided "officially."

Yea, I know and I will probably never get over the fact that a lot of awesome characters didn't get to do anything.

That's part of why I'm not going to AX. *Sigh* Oh well. I'll see you at Kumoricon

 Gas prices..ugh..don't even get me started.

 Don't feel  too bad. We can talk about them while they're gone to Expo and they'll never know..>>

..Oh hai guys! XD

 Yea do that.

 Would say more but I think I've just burnt off my own finger prints.. Gonna go find water now. Okay buhbai.

Post by: Charis on June 12, 2008, 03:20:39 PM
Gas prices down here: roughly $4.45 last I checked, which was a few days ago.  I'm sure they've gone up a few cents since, as they always do going into the weekend.  T_T

AX is as close to "home" as cons get for me, at about an hour and a half's drive.  Fanime was more like four and a half, though well worth it for the awesome experience.  <3

... it makes me very sad that I have to wait here at work for the next half-hour or so to be able to run some samples, and I have nothing else to work on, and I've got cosplay stuff sitting right here to ... oh, wait, I can take my break time now!  Mwahaha!

Ahh oy AX -____-;; I really want to go but in my case it's more of a lack of a room that's preventing me from going at the moment. But I'm asking around... not too much success so far though. I have alot of friends I really want to meet going this time to (as usual I might add).

I'll be there as Debitto, and I'll be bring a Jasdero with me, as well as an Allen in his normal clothes - the pants, white shirt with the red tie, and vest.  Hopefully the day of this gathering will conviently fall on the day of the black and white ball 'cause we're wearing these characters to the ball in suits as per this image: http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a90/Valatri_LJ_Pics/D%20Gray%20Man/?action=view&current=Minitokyo_Group_Scans_D_Gray-Man_29.jpg (http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a90/Valatri_LJ_Pics/D%20Gray%20Man/?action=view&current=Minitokyo_Group_Scans_D_Gray-Man_29.jpg)

Oh dear god I don't think I could stand a road trip with my family at all.

I went on a road trip from Seattle to AX in Anihiem and it was a good 14 hours. Through dead, dry grass lands.  I wanted to stab myself in the head just for entertainment, but I had nothing sharp enough so I settled for repeatedly slamming my head against the window.  >_<

well it also depends on how fast your driving
and if your able to avoid traffic ^ ^
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on June 25, 2008, 04:51:48 PM
I drive pretty darned fast, and it took me something like four hours to get from Santa Barbara to San Jose, not counting the stops we made on the way.  We didn't have a lot of traffic, straight shot up the 101.  I expect if you're taking the 5 down that's better, because you can drive even faster, but IMO, five hours is probably more reasonable on average from SJ to LA.  (It's a little over an hour for me south to LA, barring traffic -- yeah, like there's never any.)

I need to insist my brother build that teleporter he was supposed to be making in college.  Three years is enough time, right?  :3

(That said, I kind of like road trips, though I prefer them if I'm the driver -- I make a bad passenger, and that way I can control the music.  But for me, road trips usually involve high-speed chatter and/or singing along with the music, especially if it's my sister and I (as it was for Fanime).)

No. Running makes me angry. How about a game where we uh..do something..other than running? ..Yes.

Well, I dunno if we're gonna have enough people for a game of Cosplay Chess, not to mention I don't know if Gaming is going to let us. . .
Maybe we can play Monopoly in the park LOL xDD

OR!! We can play cards *w* *will definitely put her card-cheating device into use* Yes, for the sake of accuracy, I actually got one for my Allen cosplay xDD

I've always was curious as to play that Monopoly in the park.. and for that matter the giant game of chess at Santana Row D:

Btw 10 on Sunday = awesome time as it lets me work a second gathering later on in the day, and judging from my plans so far I'll probably be participating in two gatherings at least one of the days.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on June 27, 2008, 07:53:59 PM
Yeah, that was the main reason why we picked 10 AM this year, cuz it was early on in the day, so most people would be able to make it, not to mention go to the SJ gathering at 2 in the same costume, or another one if they were going to a different gathering. ^^ Cuz we smart lol

Very wise thinking indeed : D

D8 I just noticed the Soul Eater gathering was Sunday to > A<;; I'll see if I can get that changed with any luck. Three cosplays in one day is a bit much, though so far only Shinpachi's cosplay has given me any trouble (with any luck I'll be able to wear it right for AX).

@yama- dang my parents aren't even that asian strict lol

YES!! My parents ARE that strict, because they're like, "You can't do anything by yourself until you're 16!!" D: Hell, the only reason I'm allowed to go to Fanime right now is because I always go with a bunch of my friends every year.

but I think 10 is quite early thats why alot of people didnt make it this year.

Yeah, that's our main debating point right now, I think. . . whether to make it just a LITTLE bit later so more people can make it (and still sleep in, lol xD) Because, at one point, we only had 5 people at the gathering, and by the time more people came, most of the people that HAD been there on time were gone ^^;

Oi, I HATE changing in and out of costumes!
 Especially at Fanime.  First I was Edgeworth, at 1pm, then was the shonen jump shoot at 2.
They weren't taking 'Edgey pictures' anyway so I changed into mini Byakuya as quickly as i could and still missed the shonen jump shoot
Byakun is only IN the manga so I belonged there more than the Bleach shoot. >_<

Bah, we can sleep the rest of year.
Going an entire con without sleep is quite the experience ( what I can remember of it) everyone should do it once.
Later I foudn out that after I changed the PW group was looking for an Edgeworth. This is why I HATE having more than one costume.

The concept of getting regular sleep at any con is amusing to me XD

I can understand not wanting to pull constant all nighters but.... I just don't see how any one can sleep regular hours (assuming them to be 8-10) at a con.

Haha I almost went through AX06 with no sleep.. though I kept passing out for a minute from time to time whenever I sat down o ___o;;

Neither can I. 'Sleep' and 'convention ' are completely  antonymous with one another.

Last Kumoricon I did the very same thing. The second I stopped moving, I'd fall asleep.  I even fell asleep while my friend was spiking up my hair and apparently started hallucinating after a while.

It worked out pretty well though because I was cosplaying as a  really beat up Renji ( covered in fake blood and bandages.) and was stumbling around behind Byakuya. It only made the costume more..'believable XD

well when do you turn 16?
when you do say mom dad I;m 16 now what I can do thing now lol.
don't do it if your parents will kill you hahaha

welll I think you should wait a little and see when like the really big anime gatherings are
then decide on which day since DGM isn't so big this year hopefully next year.
since they bringing it over like in jan or so ^ ^

And, really random, but my cousins are trying to get me to cosplay Allen from the latest manga chapters. . . xDD; It'd be an easy closet cosplay, but. . . I'd need a new wig xD; They said they wanna go to Fanime next year as little Kanda and Lavi (from the recent chapters), but they can't go unless I go with them ^^;; And thus brought about the idea. . . oye.

Post by: yamaneko on June 28, 2008, 04:15:52 PM
Lol, yeah, that was the main idea xD They read the chapters and were automatically like, "OMG WE HAVE TO DO THAT!!!" ^^; Because you don't really get chances to cosplay like that when you're only 8-9 years old. . . ^^; They're getting tired of being chibis, lol xD

You can be like that one Sanosuke with the giant Zanbatou xD; At least you'll be easy to find, then, lol

Yamaneko: Aww that's so cute! I hope they do that, I know if I was younger and been more into manga I'd have loved to done chibi cosplays like that.

Post by: yamaneko on June 28, 2008, 04:49:51 PM
Lol, I'm kinda obligated to, since I was the one who got them into D.Gray-man in the first place xD; Of course, they went and found other animes and mangas by themselves, but I got them started xD They've done lots of chibis, like Deidara and Tobi from Naruto, and Yamamoto and Gokudera from Kateikyoushi Hitman REBORN! xDD I'm so proud of them, lol

Awww Reborn! X3 I'd have loved to see that.. the Naruto ones were probably cute to but since it's my least favorite SJ series I don't mind not seeing.

My little sister sadly won't get into manga. I've been trying to (for one I think she'd make a really good Bianchi from Reborn! ) but so far she hasn't displayed any interest in reading my manga. We used to watch alot of anime together when we were younger to XD

Man. I wish I could get more people into cosplaying D: I mean, I have a (big) group of friends that all love anime, and I even come to the convention with a small group of them ( everyone else's parents aren't okay with it; they don't like the idea of a bunch of 14-year-olds running around by themselves D: ) They all love anime, but cosplay. . . not so much. Dx Thus, all my cosplay friends end up being older people who I don't really see normally the rest of the year.

I know A LOT of people who cosplay. There's just one tiny little problem; I cant stand to be around the majority of them. >>

My friend and I think that it's a problem to find friends at conventions because they are either very young and drag all their teenage baggage a long with them, ( that's how it is at Sakuracon, no one can just forget their hang-up and have fun, noo, the convention is where they bring all of their baggage and  open it up to share like  some sort of crazy drama-pot luck! >_< )
or that they have no drama, also no time or money to attend.  It's difficult to find a happy medium.

Fanime was really awesome though. I met people of all ages and no one was dramatic/neurotic/psychotic ex.
Everyone was pretty damned cool.

Hmm..well I never thought you were very old myself.

*Sigh* People always think I'm older too. Which is LAME because I'm 24. One guys guessed 28 and you know he must have actually thought I was 30 or so because guys always say younger than they think for fear of being beaten up.

 I'll probably make a terrible Kanda looking as old as I do.

 Of coarse, my friend already says I'll make a bad Kanda because I have a bad habit of insta-killing any plant within 50 ft of me. ;_;

Post by: Charis on June 29, 2008, 08:45:24 AM
It cracks me up to realise that I look younger in most of my cosplays.  Of course, I'm usually losing the glasses and putting on a wig, and since that covers the grey hair up (I started going grey pretty young), that probably helps.  :3  *older than Yuu*

I'm in full-on flail mode getting ready for AX (the only reason I'm not sewing yet is I slept about five hours last night, and I've been doing four to five for the last two weeks, so I have to finish waking up first T_T ).  Trying to finish a Juuni Kokki cosplay, but after AX, it's the details for that and finishing up my Miranda cos, because it's half-done and will be LOTS faster than trying to get Komui done for Kumoricon.  Too many cosplays, way too little time and space, do want more of both.  T_T

I think I'm a freak for expecting to actually sleep at cons, but at least for Fanime, I had the excuse of being the driver.  You want your drivers to sleep, unless you like dying.  :D  I didn't get more than about five hours the night before Fanime, though, and so I had to make up at con.  (It was very odd staying up until ... what was it, almost two? ... on the last night of con.  I'd never done that before, somehow.)

The thing I'm looking to least with finishing Miranda is the mass of buttons up the back.  If I were smart, I'd just put a zipper in, but nooooooo, must be accurate.  Dear neuroses, plz stop.  If I melt at AX, it will be your fault.

(I'm pretty sure I'll be doing midday costume changes next year, given the amount of stuff I've got planned.  Flail, flail, panic, flail.)

Go, Charis, go!! xD Lol, I myself have never noticed the back of Miranda's uniform ( one, because I never intend to cosplay her, being waaaaay too short, and two, because she's not really a very attention-grabbing character ^^; ) But kudos to you for noticing, lol xD
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on June 29, 2008, 09:20:46 AM
Actually, I'm not doing uniform Miranda -- I started her pre-exorcist dress for last year's AX, never finished it, and decided I'd do that for Kumoricon this year because Komui might take me too long to work out (and I have other projects I want to start).  I don't think the uniforms use buttons much aside from the decorative accents.  :D

Ohhhh never noticed the back of that either, though xD; I don't notice a lot of people's backs, though, unless there's like a whole panel in the manga dedicated to it ^^;;

I had an eye-popping moment when I saw the new uniforms. Let's just say I saw mainly zippers @__@ and then I found out that the lines on Allen's sleeves. . . yeah, those were zippers, too D: And the belts!! OMG! At least Allen doesn't have as many as Kanda @___@ Hoeeeeeeeh. . .

  Eh? 'new ones'? You mean the 'second ones' that they have in the anime right now? Or have I missed something?
   I thought Kanda only had one really big zipper on the front of his coat. Are there more that I need to make?

 You know, if I weren't a girl I would just make his costume post-Skin battle. It'd take a hell of a lot less time to make and i wouldn't fry  if it were really hot. but noooo >_<

Hmm I bet he does have serious moral opposition to that Lotus just..not a damned thing he can do about it. 
Oh, that brings me an OT question; what IS with that curse anyway? After he fought Skin it wilted away but he didn't' die ( Not from that anyway) so like..was it all a lie, or..what?

As for his hair, I think it's just something in they do in anime to make battles more epic. Happens to Renji  too. I wish my hair were that long. Grow faster dammit!

I don't mind staying home. I don't have my Kanda costume anyway. I still have to finish unpacking my stuff, oh, and I'm flat fucking broke. >_<

I HATE cold. I cannoit stand it below 65. My apparent is a bit warm but it's in the middle of asia town and is all-Japnese-ey. Theres a giant court yard with a gazebo and a pond/fountain thing. Plus I have my own patio so I just sleep outside it gets too bad.

I don't think it wilted. . . just another two petals fell off or something o.o apparently, the Lotus is keeping him alive, and as soon as all the petals fall, then he dies. . . ? o_O I dunno, something like that.

As for me, I'd rather it be super-hot than super-cold, so. . . yeah ^^;

Yea, rather that's what it's supposed to do. But after he fought skin all the petals fell off. Even Kanda seemed confused saying
"I'm still.." (didn't finish his sentence, but it's obvious what he was gonna say.)

Me too. It got to 105 one day last summer. My friend came over asking " OMG!! How can you run around nd like that! It's over 100 degrees!"

I told her " Don't be such a baby it's 85 at most"

Nope, 105, and I was perfectly happy.

 I sound like an old man when I say so but I especially hate cold because my joints don't like it and just refuse to work, but if it's warm I can run circles around everyone XD

OTL ;;

D8 another thing I dislike about the heat is I sun burn easy/tan easy and I like to go on walks/jogs for exercise. It's alot easier for me to do such enjoyable when it's cooler. It's alot easier to wear more layers of clothers then not as well XD;; Pants > shorts, at least for me.

My brother, on the other hand, really loves the hot weather as well.

The funny thing is I'm actually better handling the heat then I think I am. My mom will come into my room sometimes and comment on how hot it is and I'll be like "eh" ?

The heat just tends to make me feel more emotionally upset then anything else, but I'll probably not even notice at AX since I'll be to busy enjoying myself to really care (plus it's not suppose to get higher then 80's apparently).

Even though I'm incredibly white, I don't burn at all. I am IMMUNE to the sun!

It's because this of this medicine that I take for something completely unrelated was originally used by the military to treat fall out sickness. So if there is ever a nuclear war I'll survive..to live alone with the cockroaches. Hooray.

I'm like that with the cold my friends tell me that I get insufferably bitchy in the winter.  Of coarse I do! It's COLD! >_<

I'm going to turn into such a puddle at AX.  T_T  Captain Mom two days, and the other two, the cosplay I'm going to be wearing has ... um ... four layers on top, plus the foundation garments, and one of those layers lined.  Two and a half on the bottom.  It's going to be interesting.

Upper eighties is too hot for me.  Of course, I've been suffering over my steam iron today, so I'm not even enjoying the relatively cool weather of today.

I almost wish I had finished Miranda for it.  She'd be cooler.  Maybe I will wear Okita one day after all ...

I was thinking of doing Lenalee. Can someone please explain the "gathering" concept to me please

A gathering is basically where lots of people cosplaying from (typically) the same anime / title get together, take photos, and get to know each other ^^ It's kind of a way to sort out cosplayers, for the sake of the photographers that come every year, and also so we can locate people who love the same titles we do ^^ (because even if they're not in costume, people who love the title always end up showing up to take pictures and what-not)

I don't think it wilted. . . just another two petals fell off or something o.o apparently, the Lotus is keeping him alive, and as soon as all the petals fall, then he dies. . . ? o_O I dunno, something like that.

Perhaps next year?

At least my Shinpachi cosplay is light and cool.

Yep, I may end up bringing Kiddy Kanda and Kiddy Lavi with me this year xDD;

 I think it's a woman he's looking for. I don't recall exactly, but I think he did at one point say 'her' and I also read somewhere she's the one who cursed him. Probably just wants to get even, at least, I hope. I will have no gay Beauty and the beast shit in my anime! >_<

Thats right you still have me, and hey, whom else you possibly need around? I warn you I may not be all that entertaining. While I only have one class this quarter it requires A LOT of studying.

On the subject of weather; bout an hour I looked up at the clouds thinking " Looks like lightening.." Not ten minutes later there was this ginormous nuclear bomb like flash. And EPIC lightening. Not like that pussy thread-thin white lightening either, giant pink-purple bolts. That was the most awesome thing I'd ever seen. I wanted take the antenna off my friends car and go play outside but he wouldn't let me. Lame ass.

...and now it's raining. double lame. I'm going to bed. >_<

Yea, it doesn't happen very often here. Of coarse when it does everybody panics and runs inside.  You know the second you step outside it will hit you -_-
Or they drive like complete morons. Which was the case last night. Made things extra interesting because my friend has terrible road rage.

I absolutely LOVED the zombie arc. At least I did id until the author completely destroyed it with emo Linalee.
How typical " I'm so week and helpless, and cute and the bad man did awful experiments on me! Lookit my whorish booty shorts! "  ::)

First of all, Allen is the main character. Only he's allowed to emo like that. S
Secondly, .I'm sick of annoying 'tragic' female characters.
 It doesn't help that i pretty much hated her since the moment she showed up.

On a much more random note. Downtown is crazy. Apparently there was a bank robbery and shoot-out. I was stuck in class. I did hear the sirens and gunshots, but thats' all. Since it's a class on law I tried to convince the instructor to let us out via ' On-site experiance' btu she didn't go for it. WHY do I always miss the exciting things?!

I still want to do my Komui cos, but I'm seriously wondering how it'll fare in terms of time.  Oh, well.  Someday.  :D  I <3 mad scientists.

The goddamend lightning kept me up all bloody night. It hit my building twice!

I vaguely recall walking up and yelling at the thunder to stfu and slamming the door >>

It's still all thunder-ey. STILL!! I could barley hear my instructor!

 "Don't make me come out there!! Wait a minute.. That's no thunder! Its the goddamned Loch-ness monster!! Dammit monster, I aint giivin you no tree fiddy!' *slams window*


Oh..  that reminds me, although I'm not going to expo, it turns out you may not have Yuu to talk to. All that lightening sort of friend my computer >_< It was a piece of shit anyway.

lolz that isn't a problem here. There is no sun to blind you.

College really isn't very scary. This is the first collage class I've taken where I've felt challenged and it's part of my law major. It's pretty brutal, but I'm not complaining. I didn't expect it to be a walk in the park.

OMG dbl post nooo!!

Just pretend you didn't see it.

I went to my old apartment today to get the rest of my stuff when I noticed something that I HAVE to bring to the D Gray-meet.

Last October my grandparents gave me a Hyacinth plant. I LOVE flowers, but I'm eh..not very good with them.  << understatement of the century.

I forgot to take it out of the shade which kind of stunted it's growth. The few flowers it had wilted immediately. My roommate kept getting on my ass for not throwing it out. Because as I still argue " It's NOT dead dammit!"

It was still in my room this morning.  I picked it up and brought it with me to the new apartment. It's sitting on my patio, it just  needs is a little sun. And yes, I'll still have it come Fanime so I'm bringing it with me. XD

A. . . plant? o_o WHY. o_O Lol, jkjk, you can bring whatever you want to xD; As long as it doesn't violate the rules of conduct or weapons policy :3 *staff member side coming through*

Also, finally back on the topic of the actual D.Gray-man gathering. . . we have a pick between Monopoly in the Park and Cosplay Chess. Statistics below!! x3 (cuz I got bored enough to actually think it out. . . OMG I THINKED. o_O Thunk? Thank? o_o I dunno; I'm high on sparkling lemonade x] it tasted like Fresca. o_o)

MONOPOLY IN THE PARK:
Pros: close-by, all materials provided already
Cons: not that many people can play at once, someone might be playing on it already (meaning no dibs can be called or anything)

COSPLAY CHESS:
Pros: closer-by than Monopoly in the Park, lots of people can play
Cons: need to talk to Gaming for a board (unless we make one ourselves) and time slot, need to organize teams

So yeah. . . in the case of Cosplay Chess, it's more a problem of whether Gaming will let us ^^;;

Yes, ah..i suppose it is kind of an inside joke really.
I don't know it would just be funny to have everyone yelling at me " Yuu, that flower is DEAD throw it AWAY!" and then get bitched at because "No it isn't dammit!"

Dood Cosplay chess owns the hell out of Monotony any day of the week. Also, no one ever finishes a game of Monopoly.  Everyone will have to leave because it will no doubt coincide with other events.

Problem with Cosplay Chess is that you need a LOT of people.  I had much fun with it last Fanime (even if I still fistshake in Yuu's general direction, mwaha), but it's hard to assemble enough people -- we nearly didn't have enough even at the Bleach gathering.

And yeah, also back from AX.  Fwee.  *thud*  Working at convincing my family to come to Fanime next year, which would be fun and mean that I'd be more likely to do D.Gray, so yay.

The problem as I see it in my case at least will be the amount of time this all takes, espically if I do end up getting my own table in the AA and want to sell my own prints and possibly offer commissions. I'm already getting alot of my time ate up with other cosplay meets and I have at least one more the same day of this one.

So what did you both think of AX anyway if you mind me asking?
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on July 08, 2008, 12:11:24 AM
I found AX itself pretty dull -- but, as my Cross-Kaasan pointed out, it's much more of an industry con than a fan con, and as a fan, I find that pretty meh.  The con centre was okay, the organisation (aside from photoshoot locations, which were confusing to remember because none of the info booths had a map) far better than last year, and aside from what seemed like a relatively few incidents, staff was okay.  Personally, I could have used a hell of a lot more A/C, but that might've had something to do with wearing fifteen BILLION layers of clothing for most of con.  Oh, cosplay.  XD  Overall, they carried it off a lot better than I expected them to; I don't know if I'll be going back, in all fairness, but that's based far more on who I know who will be going and can room with than anything else -- I have no motivation to go by myself.

However, I go to cons more for company than for anything else, and I can say with perfect surety that the company I kept was all kinds of awesome.

Yes, Cosplay Chess would take more people AND time D:

The thing is that SO MANY gatherings are happening on Sunday that a lot of people will probably be going through more than one costume that day, thus don't have enough time to sit around and play chess in their D.Gray-man one. . .

My thought was that maybe we could have D.Gray-man Cosplay Chess on another, less-busy day, but that would kinda kill the point. . . plus, as I see it, we might not have enough people even IF everyone stayed D: (but, then again, who knows how many people are assembling on cosplay[dot]com, so. . .)

Post by: Hirotona on July 11, 2008, 04:52:20 PM
More A/C sure would have been nice yeah @___@ I wouldn't have needed to switch out of my Shinpachi cosplay half way through the day if it was cooler.

And I go for pretty much the same reason and since I got to meet a lot of awesome new friends overall the con = very awesome. Main thing that sucked about AX was none of my friends wanted to do anything during the nights/later evening of the cons so that was pretty boring, at Fanime I had fun all hours.

Urgh, gad.  I was wearing Unohana two days, and the other two was the dry run for my Juuni Kokki cosplay, which is EVEN MORE FABRIC.  I was an amazingly puddleriffic 'Ris.  I will give them props for better A/C than last year, though.

(Amusingly, despite epic fail of panels and stuff, I didn't get to sleep once before about one in the morning at con, which is late as all get out for me and mine.  Kaasan usually falls over by noon, but we kept going out for food or hanging out or things like that.)

Gotta get sewing on Miranda this weekend.  Spazz, flail. But shopping now!

Post by: Hirotona on July 11, 2008, 05:19:14 PM
Well alot of it was my fault really cause I choose to wear a shirt under the hakuma?sp but.... still it was pretty swealtering @__@ I wish I could handle the heat better. To me it will take alot to make AX more enjoyable then Fanime just cause of the location. It's hard to beat the Fanime con area imo and if the weather continues to be decent like it has the last few years Fanime will just be more enjoyable almost every time.

... my Shinpachi was more a dry run to though. I still wish I could put it on myself and I still need sandels and possibly a wig.

XD ahh well good thing in my case I don't care much for panels in the first place. And it helped that the AA was in a windowless room instead of that damn sunny hallway it was last year, that place was pretty brutal.

GAH. I just realized. JUST HOW AIRY IS MY KYUUBEI COSPLAY GONNA BE??? DDx Cuz it looks like he wears a lot of layers in the anime. . . Not to mention, he wears KNEE-HIGH TABI SOCKS. D: (where the hell I'm gonna find knee-high tabi socks, even I don't know. . .)

Yeah, totally unrelated to the D.Gray gathering xP But, yes, Chapter 159 Allen is nearly completely assembled, ordering both wigs (Allen and Kyuubei) off of Cosworx currently. . . Doesn't look like Halibel's gonna be in store this year. V.V
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on July 12, 2008, 02:11:15 PM
You're going to do Halibel then? o vo

I'll have to get Syazel ready then if that's true.

Ah D: I'm going to need to ask my friends about wigs and wig caps soon and all that.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on July 12, 2008, 07:27:19 PM
Nah, I think Hali will have to wait for Fanime '10 V.V Unless my dad agrees to get both, which would be awesome x]

Lol, I never use a wig cap xD; (PHAIL) I don't have that much hair for a girl (good aspects of short hair) so I just stuff it all into a hair net and put the wig on over that xD Dunno how it works for guys, though, so don't listen to me. xD;
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on July 12, 2008, 08:08:35 PM
LOL well he should he should! I might do him anyway since you'd like to see it and that often mentioned vacationing friend (who I actually talked to a few days prior to AX) really likes the character x3 (and Mayuri, we both like the evil scientist type I suppose). Besides I could always just pull him back out in 10' if you don't happen to get the costume till that year. I just need to see what my current cosplays are before I commit to anything else really @___@;;

I'll ask my friend Yoshiko once she gets on MSN since she has some experince with hair caps and all that. They were extermely cheap when I looked on cosworxs though, which is very excellent news of course.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on July 12, 2008, 09:40:07 PM
Yeah, weren't they like. . . $1.65 each or something for the natural-colored ones? LOL I just got a hair net with my wig, so I just thought, 'Eh, whatever, it's what they gave me, so it must work.' xDD; But now my real problem is that I can't seem to get the make-up out of my Allen one. . . it's still stained from the Akuma star (my bangs kept getting in my face, but when I brushed them away, they rubbed up against my make-up @_@). So now Allen has a pink streak on his left side xD;

Post by: Hirotona on July 12, 2008, 10:36:13 PM
Yeah X3 I just need to ask a bit more about them and what not before I decided on which ones to order.

And oh yeah D: You were telling me about that ><;; I hope you can get it out.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on July 13, 2008, 12:02:43 AM
... I have to use wig caps.  Too much hair and too thick and obnoxious to stay put otherwise -- even with the wig cap, it feels like it's trying to run away on me half the time.  I need to pick some more white ones up to dye, though ... someday.

Fanime is turning into toomuchtowearcon for me -- it'll be especially bad if all of my family comes down (they're talking about Fanime over AX next year, since they can really only all make one Cali con).  If they do, D.Gray will be much more likely for me, though, since Kaasan does Cross and my punk-arse big brother cosplays Tyki, and I'm sure they'll insist I cos it with them -- especially if the brother's there.

At least with Miranda I don't need a wig, just to pull all my hair up in a bun.  AND HOPE IT STAYS. T_T

I just realized I sounded scarily like Kondo from Gintama in my last post. . . except I actually meant "Toshi" instead of "Toushirou" xDD;

But, anyways, I hope you can still make it, Toshi!! >_<

Lol, I need to ask my friend to help me with the wig (apparently Downy works, but. . .)

Don't worry, Charis, even hell-hair will eventually be tamed * 0 * Lol, you can't get much worse than my aunt (who is very. . . abusive, to say the least, to her hair)
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on July 13, 2008, 06:48:12 PM
... Kondo is pretty awesome though : D

Actually for the most part I really love the Gintama cast (offtopic).

My hair isn't espically long per say I just want to be absolutely sure the cosplay turns out well, and besides the wig caps are so cheap so it's not like it's a huge cost burden to order them.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on July 13, 2008, 10:47:19 PM
Lol, yeah, I'm thinking of getting a few for next year, too xDD; Just cuz the hair net was kinda. . . hell. -_- . . . well, it got itchy, to say the least, but it was airy-er than a wig cap xD;

I REFUSE to wear a wig, aside from being horribly uncomfortable, their..creepy.

I am getting annoyed with my hair though. No matter how much blue I add to it just gets completely adsorbed by the black!

I don't even want it BLUE just barley tinted blue but nooooo. >_<

Post by: Hirotona on July 13, 2008, 11:06:48 PM
I was trying to avoid wigs expect for cosplays I'd obvious need them (Cross comes to mind as a good example) but I'm probably just going to avoid hair dye and use wigs for all cosplays I need them for. That way I won't have to worry about my natural hair length before the con as well. I always had that worry beforehand about timing my hair cut right and with wigs I wouldn't have to.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: ToshiX on July 13, 2008, 11:12:26 PM

but if i am to dye my hair aoi too many colors lol
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on July 13, 2008, 11:15:26 PM
I was mainly concerned about the comfort level and cost xD;; But it should be okay I imagine. I was probably only going to do it for Kyoya cosplay anyway (from Ouran). Err hair dye that is.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on July 16, 2008, 07:25:42 PM
Gah I wanna AVOID dying my hair as much as possible @_@ It's bad for conditioning xD; But, then again, most of my cosplays need wigs, anyways. . . except Yuffie, but I don't have to dye my hair for her xD;
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!

Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on July 16, 2008, 09:12:31 PM
Well that's easier to plan for then trying to get it grow out enough in time at least x3;;
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Yuu on July 16, 2008, 09:26:55 PM
Mine just has to grow out about oh..six inches. No problem -_-

I'm getting kind of annoyed trying to tint mine blue. Apparently the black dye is used is some sort of crazy light and color devouring quasar. I tried using just blue hoping it would stic, just a little enough to tint it, barley. My nails and skin turned almost turquoise but my hair is still completely devoid of all color. It's madness.

to dye my hair so just wear wigs
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on July 16, 2008, 09:39:39 PM
I can't dye mine at all, really.  I can cover up the grey for about two washes if I go for a permanent dye and the grey-buster stuff, but it's just not worth it.  I'll probably wind up doing it for Miranda because Lazy Charis wants to avoid another wig and will be doing hair-up dress Miranda, but that means it'll last through con and that's about it.  (It's also way too long for her -- just about to my waist again now.)

I need to get cracking on Miranda for Kcon, but Trinity Blood keeps distracting me.  T_T  Maybe I'll dig out the dress tonight while I wait for my laundry to finish ...

Post by: Hirotona on July 22, 2008, 12:09:15 AM
It's a very convenient reason to anyway x3;; We'll make it work out!

I'll probably have to custom commission Cross since all the gold the pre made costumes used are too shiny o o;;

Post by: yamaneko on July 22, 2008, 08:45:31 PM
Lol, it IS pretty shiny ( as far as the pictures look ;; ) xD;

Looks like nothing can be confirmed "officially" yet until the beginning of the new year, but I think we're pretty much decided already? x3;; I may change the location to the little corner off to the left of the entrance where the stairs / doors to the Marriott are (?) Just because the environment seems to suit DGM better than the fountains. . .
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Yuu on July 22, 2008, 08:58:19 PM

Post by: Hirotona on July 22, 2008, 09:01:05 PM
And the Chikusa one look either too green or too dull in color >>;; I somehow doubt I'll have that one in time.

And are you talking about the enterance from the con center to the hotel and back? And I agree x3;;

Yuu: Errr just a random outfit switch really? ^^;; Hoshino must have got tired of drawing the same outfits again and again perhaps?
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on July 23, 2008, 01:03:56 PM
It's like. . . okay, so if you're looking at the main convention center entrance from the fountains, look over to the left corner (since the entrance itself kinda sticks out of the wall. . .) There's a set of stairs and a little "forest-y" area with a random table in it (Gina knows where; she was with Spooky there for a photoshoot). It's also where all those pictures of me from Spooky and the ones on ACP were taken @___@

If you look directly to the left, there are the doors to the Marriott (I think) TT____TT (methinks we need to re-scope out the place again; I have horrible memory)

As said in the Gintama gathering thread, we could always make signs / a banner / posters that people can see from the fountains to make sure people can find our gathering x3;;

I don't think there are any really good locations for a DGM shoot on the campus of SJSU.  There may be a few small areas that could be used, but overall there really isn't much there that isn't obstructed to buildings.

This may be a little far fetched and a little out of the way for most of the people attending, but the Happy Hollow Park and Zoo has a Japanese Friendship Garden. However, it's a ways away from the convention center.

I'll be going back up there sometime next month before school starts, I can scout the area some if you want me to. Take some pictures and post them up here?

It'd be a great help, Aurxlen, if you could do that! ^^
We could gather a group of people interested and just go there together? Whoever wants to go / is interested in going.
V.V Yes, it's the sad thing about San Jose. . . there's buildings EVERYWHERE!! DD< But, then again, I guess that's the same for nearly every other modern city. . .
But, yes, the place next to Happy Hollow with the koi pond!! We have to photoshoot there sometime!!! O___O Even if it isn't with the whole gathering! xD; *will have her camera by next Fanime, hopefully*

As for SJSU. . . well, it'd be nice if there, again, weren't so many buildings around that would appear in the background TT____TT there'd need to be some kind of isolated little place with no buildings around xD; Which would look. . . pretty out of place on a school campus ^^;;

Also, for the actual gathering AT Fanime, we could always attempt to green-screen in the background TT_TT (only problem with that is that I. . . suck. . . really bad. . . at green-screening. . .) Also, all the other people who come for pictures and aren't green-screening would get a random green background xD;

On a side note, if anyone's in the area before or after Fanime and has some free time, I might try to get a photoshoot room at De Anza College; it'd be nice to have a cast to shoot there, too.

Damned midterms! My instructor is the devil..

Anyway, I don't much care for that idea, namely, because I can't attend. XD

I've got a better idea. Everyone come up to my apartment. It's modeled after a Japanese style village so it would be great for a photo shoot. Besides, I would be there so it's far better than anything in..well..anywhere.

Alright, I should be going back up there around the 17th of August, so expect pictures the following weekend?  I'll try my best.  I'll also drag one of my roommates to the Friendship Garden and take pictures there too so more people can decide whether or not they want to walk over there.  The bus is an option, but I don't know the routes and times and all that jazz, plus, it costs money.

Anyway, I'll get those pictures as soon as possible when I'm back up there. *is at home 6 hours southeast* lol

Well I'm sure if it's too inconvient for you me and Yame could go and take some pics to C: Since both of us live alot closer by xD;;

Lol, yeah xD; Fanime is pretty much our home convention; just tell us if it's too out of the way for you xD; We're going to scope out a few spots on Saturday, anyways.

Yes, the bus would probably be the first thought for transportation. . . if not, we could always carpool (if we don't double up too much on the cast / have too many people) I think it's a little far to walk, though? ^^;; I dunno; I've never tried.

I've never been to Happy Hollow but I imagine walking from the con center to it would take quite awhile. And even transporting back and forth will be time consuming to some degree... not sure if I'll have so much time to spare ^^;; I assume this photo shoot area is free then btw?

And hehe Saturday is on then? Awesome C: Though one of my uncle's is coming down on that day to..... I'm not sure what time but he's going to help me get a job at Whole Foods :3 Which is quite needed so I can actually afford these many planned cosplays/and con visitations.

Free to go in, and you can pay for fish food >D

And, unfortunately, Saturday isn't on. V.V I totally blanked and forgot about my friend's birthday party D: Is Sunday okay? >.<

X3 haha awesome then : 3

That wouldn't be the friend you got the gift card for would it? Do have fun C:

And yeah that should work well enough, just try and get there around 12/before then preferably ^^; The earlier the better I'd say.

So want to meet up at the con center then? I'll probably be waiting on the benches inside towards the enterance to the Marriot if you want to start there.

So, wait, we're meeting at the convention center? By the fountains / main entrance? Then we'll check out Happy Hollow / Japanese Friendship Garden? I dunno if I can be there particularly "early", though. . .
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on July 26, 2008, 06:44:22 PM
Unless you'd like to meet somewhere else? I figured scoping out the con first would be the most logical start since it's the most likely location we'll be working with ^^;;

And x3;; that should be okay. I'd just prefer it not be past one at the latest, I'll probably want to be home by six or on my way home so I won't miss out on dinner.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on July 26, 2008, 08:08:08 PM
Yeah, I'll most likely be there sometime between 12 and 1 ^^;; And my dad says he doesn't have work until 5, so he can drive us around. ( Just have to hope he still remembers where Happy Hollow is xD; )
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on July 26, 2008, 08:35:48 PM
Okay great looking forward to it C: See you tomorrow x]

And xD;; probably the only place we'd need to be driven is Happy Hollow, it would be alot more simple to walk everything else.

EDIT: Going to wait for Yame to update her post before adding a new post ^^

I'll be doing homework tomorrow.

 I FINALLY finished my mid-terms and what does my instructor say?
 " You must really be looking forward to a relaxing weekend. After all you deserve it. But this is law, and in law not not everyone gets what they deserve.  I'm assigning you four case briefs due Monday!"

..and then. she laughed! The crazy bitch laughed!

Death..the death sentence to her..>:(

Aaanyway have fun and return with lots of awesome pictures.

Post by: yamaneko on July 28, 2008, 05:48:55 PM
Okay, I'm actually gonna double-post V.V FORGIVE MEEEEEEE. . . !!

So, I guess I'll just summarize for yesterday. . . Hiro, you can feel free to add anything you think I missed xDD; I will have a link to all pictures at the end of this post.

We met up at the San Jose convention center where Fanime's held every year, and took pictures of the area I was talking about for this year's gathering. You can see where it is in contrast to other things in picture 2 under San Jose Convention Center (why, yes, I does suck at drawing arrows / writing in MSPaint xP) We took a look around the area and took various shots of the forest-y area and the stairs (which actually don't lead anywhere, but. . .) Due to backlighting, some pictures make the place look darker than it actually was @_@ Oh, and they moved the chess table I was talking about D: I think it'll be back for the convention, though; who knows x3;;

We then went to check out SJSU, since we were close by. Most of the shots taken here were reference for possible, future REBORN! photoshoots. Mostly of the parking garage xD; Though, we did go near the arena, and took some shots from the roof of the taller building. (I saw a random tree in the middle of nowhere and took a picture of it xD; (see picture 1) We went into the garage to take shots for REBORN! and saw this epic-looking ray of light on a flight of stairs o.o It was on the next flight of stairs, too (see pictures 7 and 8 ) Though, we'd have to come when that ray of light is actually there, a.k.a. during the day >.<

The next stop was the Japanese Friendship Garden that Aurxlen mentioned. There were lots of people there @_@ So it was hard to take a lot of clear shots, but, well, you get the point ^^;; I THINK we got most of the points of interest in the place; the bridge, mini-waterfall, the water, the mini-tower / monument thing in the middle of the lake that's really impossible to reach without getting wet (plus it's not allowed) and the Japanese gates (stupid fence behind it >_>) Yeah, all that good stuff xD; We could've climbed over the fence by the mini-waterfall to get closer shots of it, but. . . it wouldn't've been worth it if we got caught ^^;; There was a little temple, too, but there were too many people swarming around it, so we decided to just leave it. . .

Next was the San Jose Buddhists' Temple / Church in Japantown, San Jose. There's a really nice garden next to it (pictures 2-3) and a big temple (picture 1). Unfortunately, the place was locked up for the weekend V.V (although, again, we could've just jumped the wall, but. . .) Just a little taste of giant-temple-ness? ^ - ^ ;;

We went to a few places after that, but none of them were actually as good as we'd hoped they'd be, so no pictures were taken.

Anyways, most of these places (I think the buddhists' church or the friendship garden is the farthest one. . . I know SJSU's pretty close) are within reasonable (?) distance of the convention center; the problem is more with time than distance, I think.

x3;; I think you covered everything. Didn't know you took a pic of the SJSU fountain till now though.

I'd say to sum it up nothing really works well for D.Gray better then the first area we went to since SJ lacks nice Victorian England settings. Some of the other locations would work awesomely for Reborn and Gintama (I still say that having the Reborn one at night might be an idea worth cosidering).

SJSU would be a about a five-ten minute walk from the con center at most and most everything else would probably have to be car pooled, unless public transport that led to the other locations was found nearby.

Yes. You need my permission because I'm going to be whiny little bitch since I don't get to join you. So your not allowed.

Unless there is some sort of bizarre California state law. You shouldn't need permission just to go on campus. Those are considered public domain.

Nah, it's only loitering if your standing around doing nothing, or pacing suspiciously. As long your actively taking part in legal activity, you can't get into any trouble.

Post by: Hirotona on July 30, 2008, 11:43:01 PM
Hmm.. well that's if we do use that location, and I seriously doubt it would be for this paticular group. But as long as were aren't carrying live steel/weapons and aren't causing a bother I doubt they'd mind/we'd need any sort of special permission. And like Yuu said the campus (and I assume most college campuses are since they always seem to have numerous amounts of non students on the campus as well as students) are open to the public. Unless possibly it was a private/indoor instituation, which is not what we are dealing with with SJSU ^^

Well.. it's good to be on the safe side I suppose.

X3;; I really miss having people post and all, and I've hardly seen Yame around either orz ==;; It's tempting to jump into that Bleach discussion I see in the Bleach thread but xD;; it would seem random and I'm not sure if I'm doing Syazel yet anyway : P I am considering it though, espically since it's my friend Iya's favorite Bleach character (besides Mayuri) and this will be her first con and I want her to enjoy it as much as possible.

As for SJSU, if we used the parking lot, we'd be on the upper floors, where NO ONE goes D: Why park on the top floors if you can just park on the ground floor? Besides, no one really looks up from the ground floor, either, so chances are that no one would even SEE us there at all.

XD you can't even see if you did look up though. And since the con weekend is the graduation weekend alot of people wouldn't be there anyway.

And D: well I hope it works well soon! x3;; I miss chatting with my awesome cosplay pal C:

  I would post more..but I have few things to say that are related to D Gray Man..or even California.

 So I just sit here in the corner and observe..and bitch about being  stuck in the corner observing.

 I can say, however than I really freakin pissed as it looks like I will have no Kanda costume for even Kumoricon.

 I WANTED it for Sakura con, but was understanding that it was short notice.

Fanime..I was annoyed but not surprised.

 He said " Oh yea I could maybe have it for ready for the parade. ( two weeks ago) and DEFINITELY Kumori."
 HAS NOT EVEN STARTED ON IT YET!

If he does not get it started by Kumoricon I swear to god I am going to bust his ass.

Speaking of procrastination ...

I need to get to work on my Miranda dress for Kcon.  T_T  Which means cutting the sleeves tomorrow and seeing how they work out, which probably means digging out the ironing board because the fabric's been sitting squished in a bag since last AX, and it's a linen/rayon, which i means WRINKLY AS ALL GET OUT after sitting in there all this time.  (It's still kind of awesome stuff.  I had to dye white fabric because I couldn't find enough black, and it looks all faded and worn.  XD )

Productivity, LOLwhut?

At least I have my clock key, even if I need to paint it.  The rust didn't come off nearly as well as I'd have liked.

Actually, he's my best friend. I feel a little ( just a little) bad for bitching about it because, no, I'm not paying him.

But what bugs me is that he keeps INSISTING he'll do it. If he doesn't want to, then he should tell me so I can get someone else to do it.

As far as general chat goes, I'm going to take this opportunity to bitch about a Kumoricon related issue.

At KC I was put in charge of the yaoi/yuri 18+ party.
 The issue of bringing food came up.

I told them that outside food is not allowed. I'm just fine with this. Id end up being responsible for ensuring there was enough to go around, and for the mess afterwords.

The attendees got all pissed saying  but we NEED food! We're hypoglycemic! " 
 I don't care.
I've walked out of the hospital after a kidney transplant to go to a convention without asking for any special freakin treatment and i survived ( I am immortal, but that's irrelevant)

I wanted to tell them 'go back and eat at your room if you get hungry"

The programming directer sent two of us private messages, usually something one does want they want to keep information, ya know, private.
In this message she basically said " No, you can't have food inside the convention area but if you do, I didn't see anything"

The other person went ahead and restated the Programming directer s words on the public forum and everyone started discussing what they were gonna bring. I asked them to delete all related material but could discuss it privately.

They all start up " OMG! Can we not have food? I'm mad!"  "Let's have a picnic outside!" 

So I sent them PM's trying to explain it to them..still, STILL they discuss having a picnic ( after midnight) on the public forum.

* Starts pulling out hair* NOT that complicated! RAAAR!


This is why I hate being in charge, this is why I ESPECIALLY hate making exceptions to the rules.

HA! I could imagine. We would have people protesting the war on Germany/Sweeden holding up signs that say " No blood for chocolate!"

Chocolate is okay once in a while but I don't really like cake or any kind of candy/dessert.

That's probably why I don't care that we can't have food. They'd only ring that kind of crap.

I can handle semi-sweet's like sponge cake and cream but things like cup cakes and fruit flavored candies are just a disgusting to me.

You ever had that pink gum that comes with a lot of the anime trading cards? Oh god that crap is so sweet I'm surprised I didn't get diabetes!

I just remember those were really popular when I was like.. in 2nd/3rd grade xD;; And then the pokemon card craze in 5/6th grade... which is what reminded me of pogs in the first place. But for the most part I played chess and video games with my older brother or just watched him play. Or read.... I've always been pretty fad resistant/skeptical.

The whole general food thing just reinforces the point to bring some/lots of fresh fruit for my hotel roommates to eat at Fanime. I'd never bring instant ramen or anything of the sort, I'd feel terrible bringing that kind of thing >>;; I don't even know if I'll allow other people to bring it... ugh the terribly greasy KFC and Pizza Hut my roommates ate this year > < I completely wasted twenty five dollars on groceries pretty much in other words.

I think I was in like..5th or 6th grade when POGs were popular. It wasn't too bad when they went out of style either. I sold them all for $40. That was a lot of money for me at the time.

Heh, I do the very same thing. I don't just hate sweets, I hate junk food of all kinds. I was really sick during the Bleach shoot this year because I wouldn't eat any of the crap my roommate had.

That's okay though, according to my friends they will bring decent food from now on. Apparently, I get REALLY bitchy when I don't feel well and they don't want to deal with that again. XD

On the food subject: among my con staples are typically either a bag of pretzels or a loaf of wheat bread (or both) and peanut butter, along with some kind of nuts and occasionally dried fruit.  If it's a room with a fridge, cream cheese and things like pineapple or watermelon are nice; otherwise, apples FTW.  And if it's a con I'm driving to, I usually bring a big bottle of water -- my sister and I went through most of a 2.5 gallon one at Fanime last year.  I know I drink too much soda if I'm not paying attention, and tend to dehydrate.  (We brought homemade oatmeal cookies to Fanime also, and biscuits, and I took cookies to AX as well.)  I like having something sweet for occasional nibbling, whether it's fruit or good dark chocolate or the aforementioned cookies, and salty stuff is especially good for when you've been in too-hot areas all day and forget to eat, and peanut butter sandwiches go easily into baggies to get carried with you.

TL;DR.  I know congoers forget to eat, and I try to make sure me and mine don't.  (I suppose this is why I got nicknamed Captain Mom?  :D )

I got sleeves on my Miranda dress today.  They're not hemmed, but yay, quasi-progress!  I need to add the white collar and do the buttons up the back before I can hem the skirt, also ... gawd, I'm procrastinating so badly.  T_T  Have to get this done for Kumoricon at the end of the month, or my brother will probably disown me!  More sewing tomorrow ...

(I remember pogs.  That's about it.)

I was never into Pokemon.  I played YGO a lot though. My best friend got me into it. She literally would not let me leave until I agreed to learn.
We eventually become regulars at the card shop. Man those were the days ( 24 and reminiscing..how sad)

I'm pretty non confrontational too.
Rather, I hate to argue so I just let people know that " There will be no drama in my presence and violates will be kicked out/bitched at until they leave on their own accord."

I'm definitely one of those people who ah..doesn't take care of themselves at cons. I have the rest of the year to do so..I don't but it's a good excuse. XD

 And yes, Cap'n Mom's peanut butter sammiches saved my ass.

I admit now that I don't like peanut butter, but it did keep me from fainting until we got to the Japanese place.

 I just don't bring any food at all.

 a) I can eat when I get home

 b) I would hate everything non-perishable anyway.

    I just need to get my own room. There is no one I can stand to room with for an entire weekend, and I'm sure they feel the same towards me.  Aside from that.. I''m usually fairly well prepared.

    My friend that I usually stay with miraculously does not annoy me. He just goes to bed really early and.. I actually feel bad that he has to up with my god awful temper. >_>

Eh well cons are the rare chance I get to see alot of my friends (since I have some from all over the country and out of country) and getting a room by myself is not so fun and not worth it cost wise. I could always go home but that kills a lot of the fun of the con to and would limit my cosplay a great deal as well.

Besides the Fairmont has fridges so everything should be a okay.

Ehe..well most people at cons are my friends UNTIL I have to share a room with them.

I swear NO ONE here can leave their damned drama at home.
 That's the first thing I tell them " I will have NO drama in my room/apartment."   Can they obey this for even five minutes? Oh god no. >_<

 I'm better off just getting my own room and hanging out with them on my own terms. That way they're still my friends at the end of the con.

I know what you mean. I live within walking distance of the main convention here, but I still insist on staying at the hotel. It's not the same at all otherwise.

I shall summarize..

Candy/sugar/junk food = bad

annoying rommies =bad

con drama= bad

Sharing hotel room with annoying and dramatic roomies who eat nothing but candy and junk food = want to cause physical injury to self

I've never seen Shakespeare in the park. I've done a lot of stage work for Shakespeare plays but never any in the park.

I have NO dramA what so ever and I will HAVE none. People always try to drag me into it, but then I jsut pretend they don't exist.

I'm not exactly a fan of the Whole Foods ..'mentality' itself ( yuppies piss me off) but they have some decent stuff. ( I really like the fresh crepes) I really love Trader Joes though.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on August 04, 2008, 06:16:49 PM
Whole Foods is overpriced, IMO -- which doesn't matter, as we don't have one in town.  XD  (We have a similar sort of independent grocery, though, which is also on the pricy front.  They do have some awesome stuff, though, that I usually try to pick up when it's on sale.)

Trader Joe's owns my soul.  Seriously, especially in this past year as my housemates render the kitchen unusable 98% of the time (which drives me insane, but that's another matter).  Their prices are also very reasonable for most things, which is nice.

Hmm.  I should really go grocery shopping.  But urgh, that requires dragging myself back out of the house ...  (But it'd be quieter.  Stupid neighbour's kids, I know you're having fun, but I wish you'd be quieter in the evenings -- even if it's probably karmic revenge for when I was a kid.  Blaaaaaaargh.  Right, grocery shopping, and then back to whaling on the grommets for my corset, and maybe a first coat of paint on the clock key.  I really don't want to deal with sewing today.  *flops*)

Con drama ... there's always something, whether you want it or not, because that's what happens when you get lots of people not sleeping enough in a small space.  It's just a matter of dealing with it.  Thankfully, I've only shared room space at a con with what essentially amounts to family, and I think there's more tolerance there sometimes.  I'd hate to room with random people!

Post by: Hirotona on August 04, 2008, 06:54:26 PM
Well.. running price comparsions on what I bought at Whole Foods for the con and if I bought the same at TJ's... I'd have saved very little. The thing about Whole Foods isn't so much the basics are more pricey as it has funky speciality foods (such as the nine dollar candy bar) that just makes everything seem far more pricey. I'm probably wrong though and just used to shopping at small/independent type stores (not whole foods... that's certainly not a small store).

LOL and speaking of noisy kids our neighboors have the loudest children > >;; They have to run up the staircase like a pack of elephants and.. ughh .__.;; Just really obnoxious and loud kids.

  Drama- I am good at avoiding. It may sound cold, or down right evil but friendship is not worth drama.
  If you want to be dramatic I don't want you. Get out and stay out.

  Food- I've only been on my own for a few months so I really watch how much I spend. I can say without a doubt, that TJ is cheaper in MOST things. Like their pastas and frozen foods.  Meat is an entirely different story.

 Whole Foods is actually is better for meat because yuppies are deathly afraid of germs and the second the clock hits midnight on the 'due date' they can't sell it. So it goes on sale.

It hardly matters though. I pretty much eat nothing but Japanese noodles ( Rice, wheat, ramen, cha-soba, ..pink-soba yakisoba.  It's all good) and meat and my apartment is directly above Uwajimaya ( and ramen shop ^^) Noodles and pork are CHEAP. So I only need to go elsewhere for specialty items.

Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on August 04, 2008, 07:53:13 PM
Meat's pricy for the better cuts (or the leaner ones, a lot of the time) no matter where you look, unless you're either buying bulk or last-minute.  I don't eat pork (not because I was raised keeping kosher, but because I never had it growing up and thus it's too rich for me), and I'm supposed to cut back on animal fats, which knocks out beef.  T_T  That means fish and chicken, mostly, and once it cools down, tofu (because I don't really like it outside of soups), and some dairy as far as protein goes.

Most chain grocery stores do the same sort of thing with putting meat on sale when the sell-by dates approach.  That and the normal sales are the best way to buy that stuff.

I really like cooking, honestly -- I'm looking forward to the end of September, because then I move and can dictate how messy or clean the kitchen in my new place will be.  AND HAVE SEWING SPACE.  I DEMAND IT.  Especially because, after Kcon, I will have entirely too many cosplay projects to get cracking on for next year.  (See, this is me cleverly trying to be on topic!)

Ah wel lthe stuff here is not 'the better cuts'. That's why it's mainly used for chopping up with noodles and sauce, which is all I want it for.

Oh gaaaawd you have no idea how nice it is to have my own place! I Love Krispy dearly but oh dear god! Such a mess I have never  before witnessed!

After living in that, I have VERY little furniture and am just fine with that. Besides, it keeps my sister away "There's no where to siiiiiiiit"  Can't sit on the floor nooo.

Yep, I'm double posting,  I'm sooo bad. XP

Did anyone see the most recent episode? Mainly the Omake where Kanda called Lavi a 'retarded rabbit?"

The retard I totally understand, but 'rabbit'? Does anyone get that?

AIt brought back fond Fanime memories.

Neko, I don't remember if you were there or still in the game room, but when I went outside to find players I found a Lavi.

I yelled 'Hey! Retard boy!" and got his attention.
I don't know which is worse, the fact that I said it so loud, or that even though I could have been taking to anyone in that crowd, Lavi responded.

Wouldn't play though. >_<

I haven't watched it since after episode three when they flipped the order of events a bit.... and that didn't sit very well with me. I'll just stick happily to my D.Gray manga (V10 comes out soon!) I need 7-9 still as well though.

And belated response but that's okay Yame x3;; We'll get to hang out soon with any luck anyway, my brother isn't coming home till December so that won't put the usual halt to my internet socializing till then.

Did they? ( screw up the order I mean?)

 I kind of stopped watching it after episode 30 or so. It was manly filler with people I don't like.

Then I started watching it again..and then..unn stopped after..episode 79..ish ^^ 

It isn't  that I only watch the show because I like Kanda, ( but I can count the others that I like on one hand)  It's because after Kandas epic battle was ..Krowlies ( or whatever the hell retard #2's name is)  And I really couldn't care less.

Honestly, ANYONE but retard #2 ( or maybe 'Girl's name')

It got epic again though, with Anti-Lavi and the Tyki-monster.

Right now Allen just brought back all the 'lost' people. 'Lost" Chya, don't get much more DEAD than that. XD

That's right. I thought so. I actually ran into a Kanda before Lavi but I didn't also them because well, I'm kind of a bitch and was mad that I didn't have my Kanda costume and even I if I did she was way prettier than me.

Funny? Are we remembering the same two episodes??

'Graveyard fight'?? Is that the one right after Cocaine Clown?
..........I mean that creepy yet oh so lovable Mimic...thing?

Uum....my former roommate and I call him 'cocaine clown' because he reminds us of Dr Rockso from Metalocolypse. But you guys seem like sane individuals so you've probably never watched that show. The fact that I( have makes me feel so very dirty.

I have no idea what those things are ( but they look like the chibi-fied Kanda and Tyki I have ) the last one was neat though. ( the one that was all white)

Random fact: after some research she found out that the Millenium Earl is in fact based off of some historical figure. I really hope that is VERY loosely based"

And, really random, BUT I THINK I'M IN LOVE WITH KAIRI'S CHARACTER TRANSFORMATION!!! *O* (Shugo Chara talk in a D.Gray-man thread, HAH! xD) Yes, I just watched episode 41 ^^;;

You know.. if I recall correctly doesn't that series have a megane I might be able to cosplay sometime? C: Another group cosplay? : D xD;; cept I don't know if you had any ever planned from that... but I think you mentioned it once or twice before?
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on August 06, 2008, 11:03:22 PM
Kairi's a megane!! xDD; In fact, the one and only megane (besides his big sister and Nikkaidou)

Now I wanna cosplay his Chara-Transformation *O* I was initially thinking maybe Rima or Nadeshiko/Nagehiko o.o But my I-wanna-crossplay side kinda spazzed out when it saw Kairi's Chara-Transformation and went OMG-MUST-COSPLAY on me x3;;
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!

LOL yeah! xD; We would HAVE to get you a Musashi plushie *w* So you can stick him on your shoulder or something! I'm not sure, but I think I saw Kairi without glasses in his Chara-Transformation o.o I'll have to look again (but Musashi wore glasses so maybe. . .)

I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY WARPED THIS THREAD!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!! >D

 Ehe..I have no idea what you guys are talking about. ^^;

Soo..how about that newest episode D. Gray Man?  I didn't realize that the Black Order was run by Hitler!
Seriously, there's no way the creator can argue ignorance on that one.

And Komui actually wasn't retarded for a moment. It was kind of cool how he said that his main purpose in Black Order was to try and keep all the exorcists from dying. Well, it would have been had he not have been mainly talking about his stupid useless annoying  a sister.

I did watch the last two episodes. That old nurse is a bit of a battle axe.
But I could tke her on >D

I doubt he is, I really don't know why Cross would do a thing like that. Doesn't seem like the type.

Randomly, as far as not being to cosplay as Kanda anytime soon; it just now occured to me that half my closet is nothing but long work blouses and chinese slipper-ish shoes.

I suppose I don't NEED to wear a black order uniforn. I'll just were normal clothes a kick my friends ass unti he makes me a uniform. That should do.

V.V Didn't turn out so great. So I'm still stuck with the little Coolpix camera :\ ) Probably won't be able to make it to Nickel City before then, though >.< Cuz my cousin ended up NOT coming back today, so I'm going to my aunt's place instead, but picking up my cousin might overlap with something else D:

Oh yea, I forgot  grade school students start class now-ish, don't they? My class will be finished Tuesday. That makes me a very sad Panda. I really enjoyed that clas. Besides that, I'll have nothing to do for am onth. I'll go stir-crazy.

You started the topic of hair problems..must..resist.. Hell, I can't.

 I HATE my hair. I can't do ANYTHING  with it. It doesn't even look normal.

I have'...as I say 'Byakuya' syndrome. My bangs always separate into strands that sit right in front of my face. I can't see anything on my left side it makes me paranoid when people walk on that side.

WORST of all, it makes my hair look dirty.
EVERY TIME I see my grandma the first words out of her mouth are " What do you have in your hair?!" and EVERY TIME  I tell her "NOTHING NOT A DAMNED THING! IT JUST DOES THIS!!"

She keeps insisting that it doesn't and that I just don't wash it like I'm some filthy slob.

THEN she say's " I liked your hair when it was nice and long and thick"  Like it's MY fault. I HAD to cut it off! I really, REALLY did not want to.

She doesn't need to make it worse. I can spend three hours trying to fix my hair and it never ever looks decent. It's very VERY frustrating enough as it is.

Oh, and if you run into a knife, you will have a very interesting story to tell people and would have to wear an eye patch. You could say your a pirate.

 I got bit by a wild dog and it VERY nearly took out my eye. I told everyone at school that I was a Pirate. Being in elementary school they all believed me.

I blame Kubo. My computer is too afraid to ever go online again because of that .....thing. ( Coolhorn)

On the subject of Cosplay; I have to remake that furry Zabimaru cloak..thing. It has to be THE best.

At Kumoricon I am THE Renji. It's my greatest claim to fame. Then some ass showed up asking " Does anyone mind if there's another Renji"?

YES I MIND!!

He's actually tall and did ALL the tattoos. I would but I can't very well run around without a shirt.

Still, he can't win because I have a captain too. I don't know any other Renji who has that. So even if he has all the tattoos, he'll have to get his own damned captain!

Yes, I tried to tell my computer that 'The bad man(?) is gone" but I think it's just too traumatized.
I will say that is the one thing I do really like about Kubo's style; the bad guys are always defeated in a creative way. Usually it's their own fault.

Ehe..off topic I know, but this place is a bit dead. 

On topic; does anyone know specifically what kind of bracelet Kanda wears? It just looks like a red beaded one. I've seen those and they look to be some kind of Bhuddist thing made of rosewood.
But Kanda does not seem like one to care about that kind of thing.

I may have to just go with some plastic beads ( as much as I'd HATE to do so) any thoughts?

A very nice/flashy way death indeed. It seems like all the main players on squad 11 are hiding a bankai release that's for sure xD;; Also serious expression Yumichika looked pretty darn cool I though.

Well at least the whole cosplay section seems dead so the D.Gray thread really hasn't gone anywhere even with the lack of posting. And at least in Yame's case I know she's been really busy with tennis pratice/various other RL things.

Yuu, you could try looking for something like carnelian beads or the like?  I don't remember what the bracelet looks like, but if it's something like a Buddhist prayer bracelet, those are pretty easy to find, I'd think.

No i have nothing to do for a whole month. I'll go crazy!

Charis- I found some that are very similar, and are probably what I need but they are expensive.

Stalking is fine with me. It makes me feel like i have friends XD

Nah, I don't have any pictures but I can describe it. The bracelet as a yellow tassle on it and the beads are roseword. Color caries from light wood-color to dark reddish brown.

Hmm.  Rosewood would be on the harder side to find -- have you considered looking for unfinished wooden beads and just painting them?  Most craft stores carry either those or some other kind of wooden bead that might work well enough -- at worst, you can lightly sand down an extant finish.
I didn't realise they were wood -- I was thinking of a standard Buddhist prayer bracelet, and a lot of those that you see are semi-precious gemstone.

(I am myalchod on LJ.  50% work blather, 50% cosplay blather, 98% friendslocked because I only want to show the world at large my fanfic, for some reason.  Yeah ...)

The ones that I found ARE rosewood.
I have considered that, but I wouldn't want something so cheap. I love bracelets so I want something I can keep.

I'm no 100% on real Buddhist prayer beads being wood or gems but I was told wood. Besides,wood is much cheaper.

I don't really talk about cosplay or any one specific subject on LJ.
There's a lot of ranting, random out of the ordinary events or..my seriously cracked -out yet amazingly epic dreams/nightmares.

Hm. The last thing I need is another forum and reason to be pissed off. I actually do not enjoy being pissed off believe it or not >P

Work wasn't interesting enough to write about..unless one of the captains decided to stop by and hide from work.

On the other hand, I get some awesome stuff here because we're scrapping it out or whatever.  Got a bag full of these bippy little disposable scalpels at home that are good for a variety of cosplay things, I never have to worry about having latex/vinyl gloves, and I've made lanyards out of scrap catheters for fun.  Now I just need to figure out how to use them for cosplay ...

(But I should really finish up Kcon projects first.  Sigh.)

Oh my that sounds..interesting. Mainly the word 'engineers' I hear their not quite right in the head.

The closest I've come to playing with medical supplies is that when I was little I used to keep the rubber turnicates ( sp)  and fling them at nurses. Oh, and chew on IV lines

Hey! I don't suppose you could get any bandages could you? I need A LOT for my Renji and probably Kanda, cosplay.

Oh and this is very random but remember a while ago when I said that I loved 'cocaine clown'?

Well I made this...

Oooh, Toshi, that's awesome!  :3

Can't help you with the bandages, Yuu -- we make things like catheters and shunts in the building, and so unlike a doctor's office or a hospital, we don't carry things like that.  (But if you ever need little bits of silicone tubing, let me know.  XD )

Yes, it is awesome. I would learn but am soo not musically inclined.

That's too bad. Man, I'd love to work in a..bandage factory. Ooh the hours of fun I could have with that.

Holy crap the weather here is freakin awesome!  It was warm enough to hit the giant water-park..even if I did get burnt to mother f-ing crisp.

Unfortunately all of my friends are VERY motherly and were all " OMG!! What happened to you?! Why didn;t you wear sunscreen?!"  *Nag,nag naggity, nag^

I hate them too. I have a seriously crazy pain tolerance, but out of everything burns hurt the WORST.  Ugh..and the peeling and blisters..nasty.

I LOVE  hot weather enough that I'll deal with the burns.
Besides, it isn't like I didn't have any sun screen, or even forgot to apply it. I just..didn't so I can't complain.

It probably depends on where you live. In Cali you almost never get snow right? here it is ALWAYS  raining so I'm grateful for the occasional decent summer.

I want to move back to Seattle so very badly.  T_T  Granted, I left there when I was three, but I maintain that was enough time for me to decide that is good weather -- either that, or my Eastern European blood makes me curl up and die with heat.  Probably both.  (It is after midnight and I'm lying here in a tank top and shorts with the fan going because it's still too hot for me.  That says something -- as does the fact that it's less warm than the last house I lived in, where it would still be between eighty-five and ninety at this hour.)  It snows here about every five to ten years, and when I say "snows" I mean that it gets cold enough in the mountains that snow comes down and maybe lasts for, at most, two or three days.  Santa Barbara is smack-dab between mountains and ocean, so the weather is seldom cold enough for that, and our mountains are lower.  (I can drive to the beach in ten minutes, and I'm at the foothills, for perspective.)  Of course, it actually rains (as opposed to occasional bits of drizzle) about every three years, and we always get floods and mudslides with that.  FAIL.

I hate hot, but I hate sunburns more.  I swam competitively for most of my childhood and up into high school, and I had my fill of burns there.  (And then, my first Ren Faire, forgot that seldom-exposed cleavage would burn like the dickens scorched my chest and shoulders quite nicely.)  However, I do miss having a tan.  :\

I also miss having time and being productive.  Come back, motivation, come back!

Just a bit. Good thing it isn't up to me. I would never ever accommodate CLAMP cosplayers. I hate CLAMP so hard.
Hell, I'd make it early on Sunday just to be a bitch..not that I am. >P

Back on the topic of weather it's gray ad crappy now. Last night there was hugenormous thunderstorm felt like a damned Earthquake.I thought the house was gonna collapse on me ( this house is very, very old and shitty)

Well I'm only around usually when it's not uni time for me, and most of uni time for me has much cooler weather despite what others have said about me getting tired of it I haven't and won't. Most other Californian's will whine even when it's high 60's about how cold it is : / The weather for the most part this summer actually has been suprisingly nice (for the season) with only eight or ten days of 90 plus degree weather and many record lows in the low 70's.

As for the time I like it. XD;; and it so far it seems to accomadate all the main thread goers well enough. Make it later in the evening and I imagine it will interefere with other gatherings, plus I don't want to have to rush back and forth all day to different gatherings.

Well, we were aiming for a bit earlier on Sunday so that people going to the D.Gray-man gathering can also attend the Shonen JUMP gathering later that day, which, in my opinion, makes more sense, considering DGM IS actually an SJ manga. . . (Advanced, but whatever xP)
We CAN try and maybe make it a LITTLE bit later, but still before the SJ gathering. It really depends when the CLAMP gathering is.

Hiro~! Send me the pics from the gathering yesterday if you can get your hands on them! x3 I should be posting mine up soon, either on dA or somewhere else. . . I need everyone's usernames / names, too ^^;;

  Apparently it was over 100 degrees the day I went to the water park. I really didn't think it was above 80.
  I think the dead nerves on my shoulders knew better though. XD

  Last night there were massively epic thunder storms and even a 'code red' ( over dramatization I say) because it was so dry.
 
My biggest issue is that it was keeping me up at night. >_<
Note: Yelling STFU at the sky only makes it angrier

 Now it's just going to rain. I hate rain it pisses me off.

 Is there no D Gray manga? That sucks. There is no Bleach manga either. I guess I'll just have to spend my time constructively now.

Yuu's brain: I'm freee! Free from he icey grip of that damnable media!

..guess I could play some dynasty warriors..

Well last week was Japanese holiday and this week Hoshino is appartently on break again ; ; I hear she suffers from severe back and wrist pain? At least it's not like with the HxH guy (btw there's a manga I sorely miss).

But expect your usual dose of the other Jump series this week. I wish the Neuro scanners were more up to date, to lazy to hunt down raws/whatever. The raws I do see are of too low a quaulity to want to read anyway, I can wait.

Severe pain my ass!! I've been running on an ankle with multiple fractures since April  and it hasn't stopped me ( coarse I didn't know this till last week)   I guess I can't expect everyone to be as hardcore as myself.  8)

BTW Hishino is a woman?! I totally did not know that.

I live directly above a Kinukumiya so  I can just run downstairs, flip through the manga and comeback in about 10 minutes XD

DYNASTY WARRIORS!!!! x3 YAYYYYY~

But gahhhhh I can't beat Dynasty Warriors fourrrrrrrrrrrr

I've never 100% completed any DW. I just can't bring myself to play as some of the characters

You should come over I need someone to horrify play DW  with. My previous DW buddy wont play with me anymore.

I'm playing Samurai Warrios now. That game is a billion times harder. ex if the castle your in is on fire it actually does cut down your time by 1o whole minutes. I found this out the hard way. >_<

Jaime: shouldn't you be getting the fuck out about now?

Me: I'm gonna take the guy out first. I've got 12 minutes!

Jaime: Oh come ON Just get out!

Me: No! I have to teach him not to fuck with me!

  2 minutes later..* Honiji has been incinerated Game over*

Sure! I'll just have to make sure I get a room with AV cables.

I am very disappointed by the lack of art books.
 It used to be that every anime which had more than handful of fans had it's own art book or five. As of late I have not seen many at all.
There are none for D Gray man and I've only seen one for bleach. BLEACH! How messed up is that!?

I think.. there are two or three Bleach books according to one of my friends. And.. yeah there sure could be alot more but maybe the mangaka's just don't want to invest the time into it, doesn't like Hoshino really can even if she wanted to sadly. I'd also love a Reborn! art book.

Artbooks I want:

Nabari no Ou
Eyeshield 21
Bleach
One Piece
Amatsuki
Persona 3
Prince of Tennis/Rikkadai
Forget what else atm....

And yeah thanks **;; D: I hope the Fairmont will cut special room rates with the con >__>;; And I need roomies to.

If I could have one artbook, it would be the Trinity Blood one.  You cannot find the actual thing these days, however, just the HK knockoffs, and that makes Charis a very sad panda.

I am losing impetus to cosplay D.Gray, though I'm sure Kumori will rekindle that.  However, it makes me sad as well.  Sigh.  Motivation, come back!

Comic con never sounded to interesting to me, too mixed genre >< Yet it had the Soul Eater mangaka >< /rages Still very upset about that, would be better appericated here at Fanime. And the dealer's room isn't why I go to see a con, and the comic con has an artist alley full of people I don't know and alot of art I dislike so yeah.. probably never going to it.

Isn't Acen two weeks prior to Fanime though? I might do Otafest > Fanime > A-kon; three con weekends in a row in other words.

I... honestly don't like the average con goer very much and 100k plus of mostly average con goer would drive me absolutely up the wall .__.;;

It definitely did have it moments.

I got to fullfill my dream of killing Haruhi S..whatever. You could not even begin to imagine how happy that made me.

 It was doubly amazing  because the cosplayer herself annoyed the living shit out of me. 

Also during the chess game..

(http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/558/retardisretardedyv1.th.jpg)

wasn't the first time either. They had their pant's down for a good portion of the shoot.

In fact right before the chess game I asked " Do you think you can keep your pants on for the game?"

And she replied " Probably not!" I missed the second round ( which she was in) but I have pics so it DID happen

That was the MOST retarded amazingly accurate Lavi I have ever seen.

I also learned something; Charisis is the Noah of "STFU and do as I say"

There is no nurse who can contend with me. I dull even the sharpest battle axes. I even a rule about them " If I go to a hospital, I am in charge, they are NOT"

Capnmmom on the other hand..

She was drawing Kanda's tattoo on me and told me to lie down because it would be easier..next thing I know: there I was, lying on the ground ( But bitching about it) then it was 'stop breathing' and what did I do? well..I didn't stop but did so less.

Worst of all " stay there and don't move" and there I stayed..lying on the middle of the floor with my shirt open. Yea, I was covered in bandages but it was still ..awkward.


Anyway, my point is,,Charisis scary like Capnmom. XD

That's a;; the rambling I've got for today. I'm sure I'll have more once the evil one Charis posts her pictures.

Ha! That's bullshit and you know it!

I mean of coarse, that anyone need only be in your presence for ten minutes to see through your 'small and flaily" act.

BTW, I never knew that was Tige. I have seen him around, but never really talked to him. He reminds of an old friend that I can't associate with anymore. Oh well, I guess he's been replaced.

I just got into the series and was thinking of doing Rhode Camelot because she's simple and cute and I'm her height! :D So, if I go, God willing, I'll be Rhode for the gathering. Might even make a Rero. Maybe I'll bring sweets. :D This'll only happen if I can save up enough moneys. T.T

I think I might make an Allen plushie or buy one. >D

Alright so comments on the new chapter anyone? C: The color page sure is useful reference for anyone doing the third uniform versions of the characters. Otherwise just a lot of discussion over Cross, nothing to interesting imo.

I commented to someone that I am very glad Miranda was not in that colour page.  Keeps distractions down. :3  But it'll make things easier for people who are working on the new outfits -- less questions on coscom about references, I'm sure.  (I wish I'd been with my Seattle family when the chapter came out, considering Tige and Kaasan's bantering about Cross.  "Stuffed and mounted on a wall!"  "No body, therefore not dead."  Hehehe.)

I wish the chapters would come out faster.

I seriously doubt he's dead... I'm pretty suprised central has someone strong enough to do that kind of damage to him in the first place though.

The chapter gave me a few more possiblities to cosplay actually but I want to kind of cut back on cosplay and devote more money to gifts and other things really.

It looks like Hoshino is back to weekly releases in anycase which is good. Now once October rolls around and HxH is back things should be pretty excellent overall, as long as Psyren doesn't get cut as well .__.;;

This is only ..sort of  related, but as dead as this thread is, who is going to care?

I started a Japanese class this quater. I'm doing my damndest to hide my affiliation  to the anime-world.

We had to go in front of class and put together words using the hiragana we had learned. Since I'm a covert ninja, I just went with something simple 'ame'.

Sensei responded 'hai, rain..and soem of you may like it but.."

 I despise rain so I replied 'Daikiraida" which I specifically learned form Kanda telling Skin he hated candy.

and she replied.." Oh good. It bad for your teeth"

I just stared blankly until she explained " ah! You dunno? 'Ame' is also 'candy' you just said " I hate candy' 

XD  Oh coinicedence.

I'll go on my more relavent  'doushite Linalee diakiraida' rant later.
Now I have to go to class.

Hello, everyone, sorry for my overall TOTAL DEADNESS for the last many weeks. . .

Anyways, please tell me which character you are planning to cosplay and/or show up at the gathering in, so I can put you down on the list without being totally confused out of my mind @_@ From now on, I will attempt to run this thread and the Gintama one full-time while doing my homework (<--- not a good thing)

Also, JJ-tan, maybe we could meet and work on a giant gathering sign when Fanime gets closer? Just in case, you know, so people can see it from the fountains because, as mentioned, the area directly around the fountains is very crowded and, in my opinion, a definite do-not-want for photo-taking purposes. . . we will be using the little forest-y area beside the con center entrance (hopefully).
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on October 14, 2008, 08:52:02 PM
I am a definite maybe at this point -- my attendance at this gathering is contingent on so many other factors I can't even guess if I'll able to make it.  If I do show up, it will be as pre-exorcist Miranda.
On the other hand, that cosplay is completely done, so that's something. :3
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on October 14, 2008, 10:19:28 PM
JJ-tan.. that's cute XD;;

I've been kind of dead to this thread but I still want to do Cross (and Shinpachi) even though my budget for cosplays so far is alot less then I expected, sadly that means some cosplays will have to go but I really don't want to cut these ones since I know you/are friends with and all x]

And yeah we defientely should! C: I hope we can meet up soon to > . < (though at least for the upcoming weekend I'm not avalible). Gotta play giant chess sometime, and the weather should be getting nicer now that it's fall.

Focus on doing well more so though in school then thread management (you need that camera C: ). And you can always try and ask me for help/proofreading to if need be.

Post by: Yuu on October 15, 2008, 10:25:58 AM
 I don't want to go as Kanda anymore.

He is still my favorite character and don't think for a second that I wouldn't be the best damned Kanda there-BUT my jackass friend  ( ya know, the jackass who just bougth me a new computer for no reason) has taken FAR too long and nearly half the people in the Sakura con group are going as him in his second outfit, which means there will be even more by Fanime.
*RAGE x infinity +1*

Maybe I'll fix my bloody-street Kanda costume.  I'm sure that the other Kanda's will get ALL the pictures. But whatever I'd own them without a costume. >)

*rant time*

I keep getting in trouble cuz my teacher thinks I'm rude. It's her faullt.

 I'm used to ending sentences with 'da' ( rather than 'desu') and she always tells me " only boys say 'da' ( which is bullshit)
So it throws me off and  I forget to use 'desu' and end my sentenes with the subject apparently that's worse than 'da'.

She also heard me muttering " Tsuki janai" ( I don't wanna")

Even more, she says my accent make me sound bored. Which is also rude, apparently.
 Every-fucking thing is rude!
Also, I hate being in front of class so I forget what I'm supposed to say and look dumber than fucking Lavi.  So she never calsl on me. Ever.

Either it's becuase she knows I'll fuck up, or she knows that I already know it and just get nervous.

It's sad that people would rather take pictures of characters they like, regardless if they are cosplaying terribly or not. Glad to see some people cosplay for quaulity and love of character rather then attention whoring which is oh so common at most every con.

 It is sad. My former roomate really likes Crowley. She wanted to cosplay as him. Yea, she is tiny and cute and he is..not. But she is very good at looking like whoever she goes as. I was very sad when she went for Rhoad instead. She doesn't even like Rhoad. Also, there are a many Rhoads  and ...NO Crowleys.

I would never ever go as a character I don't like.

My motivation for cosplay is about 80% personal preferance, 20% can I pull off? '

and a few bonus pts for friends screaming 'OMG DO IT!" ( like my 'Skin Bolic energy drink that will F-ing kill you" prop idea.)

My biggest problem at conventions, is not so much popular costumes, rather shitty costumes with shitty but giant props.
Just because they're big it's OMG that's the coolest thing EVAR. I know it's trite but, sorry, size doesn't count.

Damn that would have been cool to, I'd really like to see a Crowley.

And in my case the can pull it off/and want to cosplay the person goes hand in hand.

Alright so what is with so many of my friends always feeling they need to be in a relationship? --;; And with guys that in the end they'll get super pissed off at, and then they'll do the cycle yet again even after swearing off dating.

Didn't see it though, and I gotta admit I was pretty down on cosplay back then (cause I felt people should go to the con for more then mostly people cosplaying characters poorly, XD I kind of still feel that way but now I realize how much fun cosplaying is).

Yame: Well you're probably smart enough to realize how silly it is. And plus you're in high school.

Would the weekend after next work for another meet up btw?

 I lied about the portion of  'can I pull it off"  I'm actually very self conscious ( I look REALLY old and I fucking HATE it)  I wasn't going to as young Byakuya until my friend said " OMG DO IT" and then " after all you can't look worse than THESE" and showed me just really, REALLY 'do not want' cosplayers.
Since then, I've been a bit more lenient because I know 'there is ALWAYS someone worse"
Secondly, I do look okay in RL i just seem to be cursed in the 'photogenic' area.

As for the relationship crap; don't ask me. I have never ever been in a serious relationship ( is 24) and I still have nodesire to. Just never been one of my priorities.

Oh dear god that would drive me insane. It should depends on the character, shouldn't it?

I have the same problem with my Japense teacher. She says everything like this: ( ex from actual excerize)
" Alicesan WA Tanakasan TO senkOU WA KE-Izaigaku"

 Not only is it annoying as all hell, but since the students  copy her pronounciation, none of them can understand me when I speack, nor I them.

I tried out for Codey Hakins form PW.
I'm REALLY irriateted with the person running it.
That forum is very...clique-y.

 It was MONTHS ago and when I tried out and whenever I ask if I got the part he completley ignores me.
I'm 99.9% sure that he is waiting for his friend who was supposed to do it to return.
I'd have a LOT more respect for him if he would just grow a pair and TELL me
 " Go away I only want my friends in this dub"

Any ideas?

 It doesn't require a lot of physical strength to create a manga, buuut  according to my friend you don't talk about health issues in Japan ( wish I lived there >_<)  so it COULD  be serious. It could also..not be.

Oh no! I hope it's not serious... I just caught up! ;_;
Wouldn't want something happening like with Wheel of Time... Robert Jordan died before finishing the last books.

I wouldn't know. I have no internets.



Since the forum is dead, it couldn't hurt to share;
A lot of D Gray is based on religion, history ect. It's common knowladge.

But it goes beyond Christianity and old Counts.
I'm writing a paper on the history and sybolism of the Lotus for a class
It seems Hoshino has even done her homework here too.

In all of these religions it's the symbol of immotality through rebirth because it never truly dies. They can lie dormat under forzen ground for ceturies ( how else would they be planted underwater?)

A major part of study on the Lotus, are attempts to kill them. 
Scientisst have even exposed them to radiation for days at a time and they survived.
In the end it will be Cockraoches and Lotus.
It's fitting, since Lotus are sacred for their ability to bloom in the darkest, nastiest, reaches of hell. ( It is Asia/mideast's version of 'pandoras box")
They're are even attempts to apply Lotus DNA to corn and rice to make the world's food supply less 'killable'.

Apparently, some even bloom at night and close during the day, an act that defies the ideas of time and physics of nature.

Random note: It is also the symbol Egyptions used for '1,000 because they supposedly have 1,000 petals.
(  Kanda: Che, I could be so lucky!...
 Maybe Tim ate them?)

I'd go on, but I doubt anyone even cares.

Disclaimer: I'm not just 'obssesive fangirling' In fact, I saw Kanda's Lotus and thought it was neat before I even decided that Kanda is equally as awesome. XP

So it just just awesome x <^^**^^> ( I'm so clever)

Okay, so, down to business once again. . .

Some of you may or may not know, depending on whether you've seen B's list of gatherings SO FAR, but there is someone else running the gathering over on cosplay.com. Luckily, I'm acquainted with her, so it won't be nearly as strange. However, what we're currently trying to figure out is this: Is 10 AM maybe too early? Right now, we're thinking of changing it to 1 PM, but I wanna know what you guys think.

Well, the other organizer, Ashley, and I decided that maybe we could move the time, since 10 AM seems a little early. What if we only moved it a little bit, like to 11 or noon? I'm just trying to see how many people are AGAINST changing the time.

Post by: Hirotona on December 10, 2008, 02:39:59 PM
Excately, which is why this gathering needs to be at 10 : /

I think we should keep the original time since Yame is in charge as far as I'm concerned and she wanted 10:00AM.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on December 10, 2008, 05:43:18 PM
Yes, 10 AM is preferred by me, personally, because I know there are many gatherings scheduled on Sunday, and, if our gathering is any later, it would:

1) put people on the spot to decide which gathering they want to attend and, possibly
2) draw people away from our gathering

I personally organize this gathering because it's a great way to meet people who share the same love of the series as you do. But, if people who actually like the series don't come to the gathering, then that ruins the point. At least, that's what I think. This is all just coming from my perspective, guys.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Hirotona on December 10, 2008, 06:00:11 PM
Well you're right on all counts so xD;; Nothing to worry about really ^^ You were the only one gathering people in the first place for most of the time till recently anyway, so I think what you say should go (besides the fact it makes the most sense).

The chances of me attending it (in Cross cosplay) will be very slim if the time changes. I see on the forums she confirmed the late time, I'd suggest going on ahead as we originally planned anyway.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: Charis on December 10, 2008, 06:14:05 PM
Makes perfect sense to me, Yamaneko.  And scheduling is always a headache, goodness knows.  I'd dearly love to be able to make the D.Gray meet this coming year since I missed last year's, and there are always fun people there.  If I can't make it in D.Gray cosplay, I'll still try my damndest to stop by all the same.  But after about 10:30, 11:00, I'm not sure how viable that'll be for me as Miranda -- unfortunately, she's closer to the bottom of my cosplay list for Fanime. :(

There's a lot timewise that seems to be hinging on what day the Masquerade is.  With Fanime five months off, maybe it's better to pencil in a tentative time with some degree of alternate and leave it at that until the Masq day comes down?  I'm sure there'll be some mad scrambling rescheduling at that point anyway.
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on December 11, 2008, 09:22:55 PM
A possible solution would be to have "two" D.Gray-man gatherings; one at 10 AM, and another 1 PM, one of which will probably have to be unofficial. . . However, this expands the choices for people who want to come, but can't due to scheduling. Of course, just having two times won't solve anything, and people become confused as to which is the "real" DGM gathering. . . both will be real, of course, just that one will be unofficial. As such, the two gatherings would go separate ways.

Yes, I like that idea. Official one as planned is at 10 and there can be another one at 1 if people still want to show up.

I honestly don't see why we are even accomadating this other person, you've been in charge for five months now. She can throw her own mini gathering if she wants, but the official stays at 10 and has you in charge : /

So~~~ Yama, any further thoughts on time?  (I'm going to pose the question over on c.com, but as Hirotona says, you started this -- and to me, it seems like general opinion here is that an earlier gathering works better for folks.)
(And it was lovely to meet you, however briefly, over the weekend at the Christmas in the Park gathering!)
Title: Re: D.Gray-man Gathering 2009~!!
Post by: yamaneko on December 23, 2008, 12:26:44 PM
I still believe the official gathering should be at 10 AM. If possible, I'd reeeaaallly like to have them both be official, to satisfy both parties, but I don't think B-san would allow that >_< It does hold true that the majority is for 10 AM.

It was great to meet you, too! ^^ And I realized when I got home that the reason I needed so many wig-fixes was because my pins had fallen out somewhere o_o Who knows lol they're lost now

I'm also going to be cosplaying as Allen Walker from D. Gray Man.

However, that'll be fixed in a couple weeks.

Bah, whats 'official' its just a word. We all know about it, right?

Ten am should be fine for me.  Provided I dont forget. If I have more than two things planned, I am likely to forget something.

Hi everyone, this is Inuashley from the cosplay.com forums. ^^ I have been notified by myalchod of the situation of conflicting scheduling, so I proposed to have one gathering(I guess you could call this the "official" one, which will be posted on the gathering list) at 10am, for those of you who can't make it to a later gathering, and then another one at 1pm for those of you who would rather not get up so early, or a later time is better for you.

Please let me know what you think of this, YamaNeko, so that I can update the cosplay.com thread accordingly. Thanks,

~Ashley

I can't cosplay Tyki anymore anyways, since I sacrificed his coat to do Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji. xDD; I'll be doing this version of Kanda instead: http://www.acparadise.com/acp/display.php?c=24402
I'll probably be wearing a black wig instead though, since I don't like the blue color all too much on me.

It takes alot to be the only one doing a particular cosplay. You either have to do something really obscure or very, very complicated, or both.

You can still stand out among the other people cosplaying the same character if you try to make it the best (good construction, details, etc. be an uber perfectionist) or do an interpretation (add some personal flair).

Don't give up just because other people are doing it. =)

Yea, I do that a lot. Kumoricon I was Young Byakuya ( manga) and bloody street Kanda. Few people got either costumes.

I know it sounds really arrogant but I dont like fangirls. I dont want to be surrounded by "OMG I like Kanda the best ect"

 Mostly I told the person who was supposed to make my costume a year ago " I want to have it before it gets popular and every fangirls and thier mother cosplays him."

I might cosplay as Road Kamelot. . .not a very good cosplay but it's the closest thing I can get with regular, non-altered, store-bought clothing.

I don't know if I;ll remember to make the gathering if I roaming around everywhere.

I might come as DGM for the jump gathering it is slight but still.

And the Manga is going back on hiatus XD

*eye twicth* I noticed. Just when it was becoming very relevant to my interest.

 On that note I Like Kanda even more now. If I have to steal my friends wig I will AT LEAST be there as 'Bloody'street-Kanda"

I've made Lavi's third uniform, and have used it at a con already- but I can only come to Fanime for one day, so...
Yea-ahhh....
It's my first mainland con, so I'm kinda scared to get lost or attacked e_e''
And I'm nervous about being there without my group :|

  I decided that Ill just do one of Kandas...Chinese outfits.  I was thinking of doing that short sleeved-shirt he has in the most recent manga but uh..I cant really do 'sleeveless"

 I was thinking I would do his other outfit-The really long Chinese shirt with black oants, but I dont remember,did he only wear it as a chibi in the zombie filler

? If not, does anyone have pics to prove to it?

Also Soo Kanda is only nine. Does this mean Im a pedophile now?What exactly are the qualifications?  I  dun wanna be a pedophiiile >_<

   *Rage time*

   If I dont get to cosplay as Kanda AGAIN I asure you there will be soooo much rage.
 The sad thing is it isnt a difficult costume by ANY means but I odnt have a lot of time and Im terrible at finding things.

   One- those really plain, chinese shoe-slipper things. Youd be amazed how impossible it those are to find.

  Two-Still havent really decided which top I want that really long one, or the very short one he has in the most recent manga.  I can probabaly buy the short one  but for about three times what its worth.
 While the longer one isnt difficult to make, it would require my friend getting off his ass for more than two seconds. Thats NOT going to happen.
 
 Pants- Agaian, not hard to make but time consuming ( more than two seconds)

 Lastly- Black 'paint' that wont smudge all over EVERYTHING.

  Does anyone know where to get any of these things?  If I dont find them I wont be joining you guys.  I dont want to ruin your fun with my horrible mood.

...choking on my rage...

 A little OT ( more 'greatest sensei' evar) This forum is so dead, some OTness may wake it up.

 My phone is very loud, so when I got Charis' txt in the middle of class everyone heard it.

Me:Goddamnit!
Class: o_o
Sensei: Yuu-san!
Me: Ano..'Chikusou!"
Sensei: Better.

Later some kid was caughing up a lung

Me: Oh noes! Swine flu!
SesneI: Maa, anata jyugyuo o kimasen ka anatamo byoukidesu. ( Yah, you shouldnt come to class or youll get sick too)
Me: Doudemoi. Kore de shinanaida.
Sensei: Yuu-san!!
Me: NANDA!?
Sensei: 0_0  "shinanai-Nda." N'desu form Yuu-san!

Remind me as con gets closer and I'll toss the extra pair (or two) into the car.  I think I might have a couple of different sizes, though the bigger ones might be a smidge worn down.  Will see what I've got. :3

 I have learned that 'rage is the mother of getting shit done' so I went to the martial arts store  and found some. Kind of expensive, but Ill just make pay me back for them. ( his fault for being lazy) But I appreciate your offer none-the less.

Also, I found some baggy black capris. Not quite right ( at all) , but at this point I dont care. Anyone with complaints can eat me. >D

Senesi is the wining-est win to ever win. She even coerced me to go to a Baseball game with her and some students. No idea how that happened but ahm not looking forward to it. >>

Nah, I'll find plenty of other ways to torment you other than telling you to stop breathing so the lines don't squiggle. :P  Besides, if I had to paint that on you it'd be way too early in the morning, which would be no fun at all.

I'm 99% sure I won't be at this gathering now.  >_>  Have to fix things on Miranda post-Sakcon, and I've got an engagement for tea and snark around the time of the gathering, so ... sad.  Will try to come snap some photos, though!

Your damend right well have to have photos later!

Ooor we could all meet for dinner/ random food time like the Bleach gathering.

Also: AFAIK, no, there is nothing but the gathering itself and associated photo stuff going on.  If there is, it'll typically be mentioned in the first post.

He does not lack emotion. What the hell do you think 'pissed off" is?!

If anything, hes more/BETTER than human. If by some crazy devine intevention he actually died, they could just make a new one. XD

Are you trying to do hair-up or hair-down Kanda?  because if it's the former, and you can find yourself a pack or two of straight extensions to match the wig, can probably fake Kanda hair.  Down ... I don't have any wigs that'd work offhand, sorry.

I was going to put it up, but that will make it even shorter.
The problem is ther color is a mix of blue and black. Thats why its short in the first place. Apparently Paul couldnt find anything longer in that color.

While it won't be terribly thick, a pack of these will give you a decent ponytail.  (I would've suggested the Ivy for Kanda, but they're all out of it in the Midnight Blue, which is the colour you want.)  Just a thought.
