Title: Negima/Love Hina Gathering 2012
Post by: Eliteslayer on July 17, 2009, 07:21:34 PM
Come one and all to the third year of the Negima and Love Hina gathering! As always, cosplayers from any Ken Akamatsu series are welcome.

Every year, I see Love Hina cosplayers, and every year, there are some cosplaying from Negima. In fact, I've even seen some from A.I. Love You. Individually, they may not be enough for a gathering (or at least not a very large one) but if all the cosplayers from a Ken Akamatsu series got together, we can have one hell of a gathering.

So, I am now announcing the cosplay gathering for the works of Ken Akamatsu. Really, this is probably just going to mean Love Hina and Negima, but if there's anyone who's cosplaying as someone from any of his older series, that's excellent as well.

As an added bonus, if you sign up here, I'll make you a Pactio card for the gathering! If I cannot find a design for your character (which is highly unlikely for any Negima characters, but possible for any non-Negima cosplayers) I'll let you know which designs I have found and you can chose which one you want.

Day: Monday
Time: 1:00
Location: Undetermined

Fanime will be taking group pictures during the Gathering this year. If you do not want to be included in those pictures please step aside for those photos. By remaining with the group when the pictures are being taken you give your consent to be photographed.

List:

Love Hina:
Keitaro: RyuSan777
Naru: friend of Eliteslayer

Negima:
Nagi Springfield: Eliteslayer
Chisame Hasegawa: kookiekween99
Setsuna Sakurazaki: Aktsuko
Lifemaker: Otaking007

A.I. Love You:

You are my new best friend. I was beginning to lose hope, but I still really want to hold this gathering, so thanks! I'll add you to the list.

Awesome, I'll add her to the list as well. Of course you realize, this means there's gonna be a few pics of you getting Naru Punch'd, which leads me to an event idea I just now came up with:

Naru Punch Competition! Team up into groups of two, and whoever can punch, throw, or otherwise launch their partner the farthest wins!

Of course, I jest. Probably.

Oh yeah, can't believe I forgot up until now -- a friend of mine might cosplay as Eishun Konoe from Negima. I've added him to the list as a maybe, but with any luck, we'll have another member of the Ala Rubra. (And yet sadly and oddly, no students of Mahora Academy yet. Note the yet. Still got plenty of time, I'm sure more people will sign up.)

Okay, so, I met a few people at Sac Anime who said they'd be willing to come, so that should give us one or two more members. With any luck, they'll find this thread and sign up.

Also: How does Day 1 at 5:00 PM work for a time? It's late enough that people who will be there on Day 1 will have actually shown up, and setting it on that day should save us from clashing with the bigger gatherings. OR we could have it at six and have everyone go get dinner together afterwards.

Hooray! Glad to have you join us! List has been updated, and now with Kazumi Asakura, we have the power of the paparazzi on our side. In a good way.

I seem to be channeling Motsu today, in a good way.

Well, still don't have too many people signed up, but I haven't given up hope yet. There's still plenty of time, but we need to get word of this gathering out.

So, I have an assignment for all three of us! Keep an eye out for anyone who reads or watches any of the series by Ken Akamatsu, and see if they'd be interested in cosplaying as a character from it. If you come upon a Negima or Love Hina cosplayer, let them know about this gathering. Got any cosplaying friends? See if they'd be interested. We're gonna have to rely on word-of-mouth to get more people, but I'm sure we can make this a great gathering yet!

Post by: Eliteslayer on November 14, 2009, 05:18:23 PM
Okay, please forgive the double-post, but a brief update. A friend of mine is currently working on a Konoka cosplay, so if she does manage to come, that'll make one more for us. I'm working on spreading the word, we just have to be patient and have faith that more Negima and Love Hina cosplayers will come in time. Slow but steady, my friends.

(Plus, I managed to get some red hair-coloring spray, so I won't be a brown-haired Nagi. Hooray for actually looking like I'm supposed to in the manga, rather than the anime version wearing the manga version's outfit.)

Once more, forgive my triple-post, but I have more news. I did a bit of advertising at Sac Anime, so I found a few more people who may be interested. Aktsuko, can we count your friend in as Setsuna? Also saw some people who didn't seem to be cosplayers, but said they were big fans of Akamatsu's work, so they were psyched when I told them about this gathering. Like I said, slow but steady.

Hey! I think I'm the friend you're referring to who will be Konoka. ^^ Just confirming it. :) It's still on Friday, I take it? ^^

ETA: Ooh awesome, a Setsuna! :D

Of course, I was just waiting for you to post so I could add you as "confirmed" and know what screenname you're using here. List updated.

Is friday at 6, followed by a group dinner, still good for everyone? Want to make sure before I submit it, since time submissions are now open.

Heehee. ^^

And yes, 6 is great! :) I don't know what time I'll be arriving to Fanime on Friday(depending if I have a final that day or not.....)

I look forward to it. ^_^ A ways away but doesn't mean we can be excited. :)

What's this? No A.I. Love You representatives yet!? BLASPHEMY!! Uh, I mean... I'll try to show up as Hitoshi Kobe from A.I. Love You. Most likely I'll be making the outfit he's wearing on the cover of Volume One since I can't find anything better and scans of the series are incredibly scarce these days. > <

Alrighty then! See you at con~

Forgive the double-post, but here's an update. I've just sent in the registration PM, so with any luck we should appear on the official time and place list. There's another gathering on the Marriot side of the fountains at the same time, so we'll take the Hilton side.

Anyways, how's everyone doing? Fanime draws closer, and I'm getting pretty excited for it, as I'm sure the rest of you are. I got the finishing touches for my Nagi cosplay earlier, including shiny new laminated Pactio cards, so I'm set to go!

Awesome, an Asuna! Also attempting at adding alliterative appeal to this post, but I couldn't think of a word beginning with A that works for "post." But I digress. I shall add you to the list!

So, as a little treat for those of you who signed up, I'll be making some Pactio cards to bring for everyone. I've found Pactio pictures for all the Negima cosplayers, although just the regular cards. If there are any special ones people have seen that they want, or if anyone (Negima cosplayer or otherwise) wants a different Pactio, let me know soon, so I can print them out and laminate them.

Fanime grows closer by the day! It will be epic.

Alrighty, that's some good news! One door might close, but another is definitely open.

And Aktsuko, I'm still printing out a Pactio card for you whether you make it or not, so you'd better find me at some point during the con to get it! In a good way.

And now for some even worse news.

My sister's graduation is on Day 1. I just found out. Since it starts at 5, there's no possible way I could make it here in time for the gathering, or pretty much anything until Day 2.

That being the case, what do you all want to do about the gathering? Should we reschedule to another day, or just cancel it until next year, where with any luck we'll be able to get more members? I'm really sorry for the sudden inconvenience, but it came as a stressful surprise to me as well. If there's a time when we could have this gathering that still works for everyone, let me know and we can change it. If not, I hope you'll all still be interested in attending next year.

Post by: Angelx624 on May 10, 2010, 12:18:19 AM
Well, I don't want to fully cancel it til next year. D: So we could always re-schedule. ^^; How does Monday sound? :) Is everyone else up for Monday?
Title: Re: From the Hinata Apartments to Mahora Academy: The Works of Ken Akamatsu 2010

Post by: Eliteslayer on May 10, 2010, 09:34:04 AM
If Monday works for everyone, we can reschedule to then. There's a gathering on Monday at 10:30 that I'm going to, and hotel check-outs tend to be at 12:00, but there's a panel at 1:00 I'm going to, so would everyone be okay with the gathering being at Monday at 12:00, give or take a few minutes for anyone who needs to check out of their hotel?
Title: Re: From the Hinata Apartments to Mahora Academy: The Works of Ken Akamatsu 2010

Post by: Eliteslayer on May 13, 2010, 10:53:30 PM
Okay, I'm going to have to interpret the lack of negative responses as positive. So I'll change the time, but we'll still need someone to check in on Day 1 and let anyone who shows up early on know about the time change. Would anyone be willing to volunteer?
Title: Re: From the Hinata Apartments to Mahora Academy: The Works of Ken Akamatsu 2010
Post by: Eliteslayer on May 14, 2010, 01:03:36 PM
Okay, here's what BSaphire said:

So here is what I was thinking:

The Works of Ken Akamatsu
Friday @ 6 pm ~ L: FiF CE HS

Negima Gathering
Monday @ 12 pm ~ L: FiF CE HS

No need to re-confirm unless you have a specific photo order for either/both, but possible #'s for both would be cool. Also I need the Real Name, Forum Name, Badge Name of the "new" co-organizer PM'd to me so that my staff will know who will be checking in and they can be a part of a little "something" for organizers :)

Have both gatherings because you may get people who can come to Friday but not Mondays ^^)

So I'll need someone to take over on Friday and PM B, then check in at the day of. If you have people show up for that, great! Get pics, have fun, do all the stuff you were going to do anyways, then tell them about Monday's gathering as well. Monday, I'll host the more official-ish gathering, and with any luck people will still show for that one.

Even though Monday will officially be the "Negima" gathering, it's still open to all characters from an Akamatsu series. Is this good with everyone?
Title: Re: From the Hinata Apartments to Mahora Academy: The Works of Ken Akamatsu 2010
Post by: Angelx624 on May 14, 2010, 04:11:06 PM
So, there's still a gathering-ish on Friday? xD Okie dokie, guess I'll bring my Konoka costume that day, then, to hang out with all the others. ^^ Though I might just wait til Monday. =3 So I may only squeeze in Konoka Monday. D: It depends. >_< Since I have two other costumes I'm gonna be wearing Friday. o_o;;
Title: Re: From the Hinata Apartments to Mahora Academy: The Works of Ken Akamatsu 2010
Post by: Eliteslayer on May 14, 2010, 06:47:41 PM
For whatever reason, the friday one can't/won't be cancelled, I guess because we had to reschedule after final confirmations or something. Angelx, can I count on you to check in for us? You'll have to PM BSaphire and wait around the gathering area for a bit, but since I doubt we're gonna get a flood of cosplayers appearing unannounced on Friday, at the most you'd probably just have to tell them about the time change then leave after about 15 minutes.

Also, we can use this time change to our advantage. Throughout the first few days, if you guys see anyone cosplaying a character from an Akamatsu series, let them know about the Monday gathering! We can use this as a chance to get the word out there to people we know are gonna be at Fanime... cuz they're already there.

Alright, I'm back from Fanime, and feeling good. We had a better turnout than anticipated (I know I kept saying there were bound to be more people showing up at the convention, but I'm really relieved there actually were), and I think we got some great shots.

I hope everyone had a great time! I'll post a new thread when it's time to start organizing for 2011. Can't wait to see everyone's pics!

Post by: Eliteslayer on June 09, 2010, 11:50:46 AM
Alright, I have updated the thread to prepare for next year! Even though the title says "Negima/Love Hina," all Akamatsu series are welcome!

Although a lot of you have already told me you'll be able to make it next year, I had to clear the list for next year, so I'll ask that you post again. (Plus, it keeps the thread active and alive in the forum.)

And like last time, I'll be making Pactio cards for everyone who posts and says they'll be able to come. For those of you who were here at the first gathering and already received a Pactio card, I'll try to find a different version. For example, a Neo-Pactio from Negima?!.
Title: Re: Negima/Love Hina Gathering 2011
Post by: Angelx624 on June 11, 2010, 04:17:03 AM
Okie, put me down on the list again! ;p Dunno if I'll go as a different version of Konoka or the same one. ><;

And neo-pactio from Negima?! sounds good. :D

Post by: Eliteslayer on July 13, 2010, 09:51:59 PM
Okay, thread's falling down in the forum pages, so I have to bump it up a little.

I was at Anime Expo recently, and saw a good deal of Negima cosplayers. Sadly, none of them said they'd definitely be going to Fanime, though a few said they might or they'd been thinking about it. If we're lucky, a few of them will get to the gathering, or at least spread the word to their friends.

I might be able to go as Chisame/Chiu. It all depends if I can get the money in time to get the costume and modify it for my own purposes in time. ^^;

When I find out for sure whether I can or not, I'll be sure to follow up in this thread.

Title: Re: Negima/Love Hina Gathering 2011
Post by: Eliteslayer on November 01, 2010, 09:47:55 AM
Alright, everyone, we've got to make sure the thread is updated at least once a month if we want to keep this gathering active, so I figure we should use it to discuss the series as well as just say whether or not we'll be at the gathering.

Dunno who's up to date with the scans, but it looks like things have just gotten more difficult for Negi and co. Negi's out of action after his run-in with Dynamis and his own superpowered-evil-side taking control, so who can fight Fate now? Of course he'll have some sort of miraculous recovery, the question is how?

Also, how's the Mana vs Zazie's sister fight been going? I want to see what Demon!Mana can do.

Bumping!

Post by: Eliteslayer on January 11, 2011, 06:28:19 PM
And another bump, since this thread was falling way too far back in the posts. Still got a ways to go until Fanime, but I'm still looking forward to it! I'm thinking we should hold the gathering on Monday again, so that it won't clash with any other gatherings. I've got a lot to get to, after all. Would you guys prefer before or after checkout? I'm guessing before, naturally.
Title: Re: Negima/Love Hina Gathering 2011
Post by: Eliteslayer on January 14, 2011, 05:10:40 PM
Forgive the double-post, but I've convinced a friend to join us as Yuna Akashi, and I'm trying to talk two more into joining as Kotaro and Jack Rakan (with any luck), so I'm updating the list.

Also, we need to start choosing a time. For the day, I'm going with Monday again, so it won't clash with other gatherings, and I'm thinking ten or eleven AM for the time, so we can have it before the noon checkout. What do you all think?

Had to bump this thread to keep it active, but I've got a good feeling about this year's gathering! Fanime grows closer, and I know I can't wait.

Okay, gotta bump this thread again, and Fanime is growing closer! I've been speaking to some friends about joining us, so with any luck we'll have a few more attendees. I'm feeling optimistic about this gathering!

And a little bump now that Fanime is growing closer. I'll actually have a wig for my Nagi cosplay this time!

Also, now's when I start to work on the Pactio cards for everyone who's signed up. If there's a specific kind you want, let me know soon!

Yay for a Nagi wig~!! XDD

Also, I think I want one of normal Konoka, this time, if it's not too much trouble. :D

Were you at the Cherry Blossom Festival last year? Because I remember taking a picture with this one cosplayer that was really cool and he had a custom pactio card. Also, I was being such a nerd. >_<

I can't view that photo for some reason, but I was at CBF last year, and I was cosplaying Nagi, and I did have custom Pactio cards, so I'm 99.9% positive that it was indeed me you took the picture with.

@ Angelx: Well, the one I made for you last time was her regular pactio card, but I can try to find a fanmade one with her in normal clothes.

Having spoken to some friends about their plans, the list has been updated! We've got a pretty healthy turnout from the looks of it so far, so I'm really excited for this gathering! I'll be making the Pactio cards this weekend, so if there's a specific design you want or you haven't signed up yet, be sure to speak to me ASAP!

Ah, finally back on the forums. I'm here to check in for Zazie, I'm the friend who'll be accompanying her.
Had plans on cosplay Haruna or Ku Fei but it seems that the odds were against me. ;;

Bummer that luck wasn't on your side, Sayu, but there's always next year. Thanks for checking in.

Fanime grows closer, I hope everyone's ready! Looks like we've got quite a few people signed up for this, which is awesome. I've also finished making the Pactio cards, so if you want a preview of what you'll be getting at the gathering:

Can't wait to see you all there!

Well, we lost a few of the cosplayers for various reasons, so the gathering took a while to get started, but I think it went really well once we got it off the ground, in spite of my voice being dead. I hope everyone had a good time as well, and I'll see you all next year! Next time we'll choose a better time, since Day 4 around checkout time is really not the best time for a gathering.

My friend and I were there for the first ten minutes or so to take pictures, but we only saw like 3 people show up, and we really had to get back to our room to help clean up, so I just took a picture with Nagi and left. I agree that putting it on Monday was a bad idea.
Title: Re: Negima/Love Hina Gathering 2011
Post by: Angelx624 on May 30, 2011, 08:40:07 PM
Ya, checkout time really isn't best for a gathering~ >A<" We had to get all our stuff out of the room and the elevators were crowded so we were waiting a while before deciding to take the stairs~ D8

But on another note, the gathering went well~!! ^^ Glad I finally had my Setsuna~ ;D And I think next year I'll be cosplaying the version of Konoka on the card you made for me~ 8D

I had a hunch that was you. Good meeting you again.

@ Angelx: Ah yes, the goof pactio version, nice. That'll be a fun one.

But yeah, it won't be on Monday next year. Would people be okay with Friday, or should I see if Saturday or Sunday have open spots in their schedule?

Post by: Rizumi on May 31, 2011, 12:03:23 AM
Ack! If you're going to make it Friday, please make it a bit late.
Every year for Fanime I usually arrive around 7 or 8pm., aka very late.
(TT ~ TT)
I look forward to the next Negima gathering. Kazumi or Zazie is next.
I also think making a magic circle to place on the ground sounds fun. (just throwing ideas out~)

Also, I'm going to upload pictures later today (since it's indeed midnight) from my camera then post again another link for the ones in my friend's camera. <3

Post by: Eliteslayer on May 31, 2011, 12:19:26 AM
Alright, so we'll see if Saturday or Sunday has more free time for our attendees, and pick a time everyone can make. A magic circle sounds like a good idea as well, we can get some awesome spellcasting or pactio shots with that. Can't wait to see the pics!

Yes, and it looks like an easy outfit to put together, hopefully~ 8DD

I've updated the thread for 2012. I'm thinking Sunday would be a better day, if 2011's Saturday was any indication, but I know there'll be other gatherings then, so we can figure out a good time for everyone later.

Okay, this is sort of necroposting, but it's time to start getting this gathering back together. Is Sunday good for everyone? If so, what time? Let's start getting this together!

Post by: Eliteslayer on March 09, 2012, 01:07:30 PM
Alright, looks like we'll be doing this on Monday again. We'll go for 1:00 so people can check out from their hotels and everything, so they don't have to worry about missing this for important things.
Title: Re: Negima/Love Hina Gathering 2012
Post by: kookiekween99 on March 24, 2012, 08:42:47 AM
The cosplay materials and wig have been ordered, and tomorrow we shop for the boots, so it looks like I'm a definite for Chisame Hasegawa. :)

Just curious, but why does it have to be on Monday? Is it because it's such a small gathering?
Title: Re: Negima/Love Hina Gathering 2012
Post by: Eliteslayer on March 26, 2012, 11:11:54 AM
Excellent, glad you can make it! As for why it's on Monday, the fact that it is a small gathering has a lot to do with it, but there's also fitting it in around everyone's schedules. I've got a lot of gatherings during Saturday and Sunday myself, and I know I'm not the only one, while Monday is tricky as well, since that's when people just start showing up. So we go with Monday for optimal turnout with minimal schedule conflicts.

I've had some more people sign up on the Facebook page, and a few maybes who haven't posted, so hopefully this'll have a good turnout! Just gotta bump this thread to remind people, but Fanime is growing ever closer, so I hope everyone will be ready!

I've got Pactio cards printed and ready! Everyone who's signed up should be getting one. The backs were made a little askew during the lamination process, but they still look fine.

Just a week to go! I know everyone's in panic mode to finish everything on time, but I don't doubt that this'll be another great gathering.

Thank you, everyone who attended! I know there was a little location confusion due to the construction, but I hope you all had a good time. I've got some pictures uploaded, though I ran out of memory space, so I couldn't get all of them. You can view what I do have here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.403468116362925.91838.100000992196766&type=3

Thank you once again for attending, I hope to see you all next year
