Title: Firefly/Serenity/Whedon with Blackjack (21) and Mahjong 2016 (Updated 11/30/15)
Post by: Rodney_Pheonix on November 06, 2009, 06:20:49 PM
I figure there should be a Firefly/Serenity Get together. Not exactly a gathering per say, but a small shindig to swap thoughts and feelings about the Shows and Movie. Come to celebrate U-day or mourn the loss of Serenity Valley and profess your thoughts it wasn't the wrong side even though we lost.

However you're not limited to just firefly. Arrive to share your thoughts and opinions on Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse and not to forget Dr. Horrible's sing Along Blog.

Texas Hold Em' or 21 may be played with Bubble gum pieces as your betting chits...if they ever materialize, the mint leaves in my mojito at the con read no though, but I have an innate distrust of divination so third fourth... fifth times's the charm? Gum will be provided, on way or another, but feel free to bring your own!

As another activity we also plan to be holding a game/games of Mahjong. there might be prizes... or sermons about lepers...probably the lepers....but maybe something to do with copies of firefly, Serenity or Dr. Horrible's sing Along blog...


My intent is to have made, bought or borrowed a firefly themed set of mahjong tiles by next year.

Shiny. Such a versatile word for me now.

I'm working on a HOB (Fairly certain they're members of Blue sun considering how River freaks out when anything connected to them is in the same room as her) cosplay, and I've got ideas on their blue little taser like kill o-matic things.

Also great news to see someone else interested in this.

I'm making River's Objects in Space outfit!  The cream vest and red dress.  My sister is debating on which Inara dress she wants me to make, with a strong lean towards the peach dress.  If we can make it in cosplay, I will be in character for EVERYTHING!  If not, we'll still participate but it won't be as deliciously geek-tastic.

What day would this sort-of-shindig fall on?

Good question. This started out as an odd little idea of mine and well expanded rapidly beyond my grasp... well not exactly but I didn't expect it to get so big in terms of stuff going on. I'll have to look at scheduling, hopefully I can work it out so it doesn't conflict with too many other events, but I was thinking Sometime Saturday Morning, or Evening.

I did a small edit to the first post. I will be sending you a pm later (today/tomorrow.) I am curious what does everyone think about this... I love the idea... JW fan that I am :)

A belated happy turkey day to anyone else watching this thread.


An FYI, I have money issues, which I hope this post will be a moot point come Monday when I have my job interview, and cannot guarantee I can attend Fanime 2010 this far in advance. I'll likely know for sure in the December/January region most likely once I see prices for the hotel stay.

However I'll continue to work on this under the assumption that I will be able to make it, as I've narrowed it down to one kind of Nerf gun that six shot revolver one that I saw on thinkgeek a couple days ago.

Currently I have no clue if I'm going to be hired. The guy in charge of HR is in meetings today and tomorrow, and so I got told don't call us we'll call you. If I haven't heard back by Thursday I doubt I'll be hired, however I won't let that deter me from making it to Fanime, even if I have to scrounge for scrap metal in the creek beds...

Aiya. Tian a . . .

Who do I have to tick off to get a job.... Due to lack of capital I've made very little progress in the mesh face masks other than an initial sketch of a design. Though that is partly from lack of time between classes as well.
Title: Re: Firefly/Serenity/Joss Whedon Appreciation Gathering/Gettogether 2010.
Post by: Rodney_Pheonix on December 06, 2009, 10:45:11 PM
Still little progress in the job front and working of side stuff like the face masks.


I'd have hoped that by now things would be resolved. I'm still planning to attend Fanime though. also, what happened to that PM? Wasn't it supposed to arrive sometime last month?



I hope people are still interested in this and whatnot.

My roommates were planning a Firefly Cosplay, but I havent figured out whether or not they were going to Fanime this year [budget issues].

That I was told to try a Wash Cosplay, but I'm asian and we dont dye into blonde very well unless i use a wig [which would prolly be terrible]
course and asian version of wash would be easy...

asian guy wearing bad Hawaiian shirt playing with dinosaur toys. :P

course this is assuming I have the time to cosplay..

Thought I'd drop in and let it be known that I've been working a freelance job for the past few days, cleaning out a shop and whatnot. Dunno how the pay's going to wind out till I'm done though, however it'll be money in the mattress for Fanime.

If all goes well (there's always a possibility it won't) at the end of this freelance work I'm looking at perhaps a couple thousand coming my way.

I'll probably know when I'll be paid when the work is done.

I'm waiting for more definitive times for the other gatherings before I set a definitive time, I don't want to schedule it and find out there's conflicts with some of the gatherings I want to go to and others would want to go to.

Yay for the shiny. Anywho 1,600 someodd just came my way with about 2000 more promised.. though most of it's been locked up already in school payments and stuff like that, I plan to use 100-200 for a new guitar, and some more for Fanime related stuff.

Bump.

Got a guitar, once I restore it I plan to learn how to play Serenity (as well as Nico Nico Douga Medley) and hopefully I'll have mastered it by Fanime.
Title: Re: Firefly/Serenity/Joss Whedon Appreciation Gathering/Gettogether 2010.
Post by: Rodney_Pheonix on February 09, 2010, 10:07:56 PM
Busy with freelance work again so I haven't had a chance to make much progress with the face masks.


Guitar is also at a standstill. According to a worker at Guitar Center the bridge has a high chance of snapping off, and so I probably shouldn't actually tighten the strings to full tension.
Looking closely, I have to concur... so I'm probably just going to...I dunno probably restore it and sell it to the guy who gave it to me.

Possibly a Zoe.

Will need someone to teach her how to play Texas Hold Em.
Title: Re: Firefly/Serenity/Joss Whedon Appreciation Gathering/Gettogether 2010.
Post by: Rodney_Pheonix on February 17, 2010, 12:11:08 PM
I suppose I could teach a bit about Texas Hold'Em prior to the actual match.


Also, 0 progress on the face shields thus far, between several projects for school, and some of my gear for a backcountry trip into the mountains for this weekend, scheduled to be delivered next Wednesday I'm scrambling to get things done.


How does everyone feel about kicking off this Shindig on Saturday around Eight or nine in the morning ish?

Woot. More income.

Little progress towards the face masks. I plan to hit Home Depot for materials today though.....wonder if I can find what I'm looking for at a paintball supply shop... hell I could get away with cheapo clear plastic face shields, and then use them as their intended purpose when grinding metal...hmmm...decisions...

Post by: Rodney_Pheonix on March 06, 2010, 08:03:57 PM
I've begun the planning stages of building a Cosplayable replica of A Callahan Fullbore Autolock. Since I can't find a moderately priced Saiga-12 (replica or otherwise) I'm going to go with a cheap AK-47 airsoft as the base to constuct mine. Granted since this is a large project it won't be ready for this years Fanime, probably 2011 is not later cons.

Also, between the liabilities, and other issues like my being unable to create a proper face shield and the nerf guns liking to misfire a lot the duels are hence put on hold unless I can work out some problems for the face masks, and aqcuire a simpler set of single shot nerf guns.

Shiny. I guess if people want to show up yes there will be a get-together. I wouldn't call it a gathering per-say.

I'll bring down a couple decks of cards and my set of chips if people want to play Texas Hold'em.



Nerf Update:

On the shots I've bothered to keep track of on a notepad there's about a 30% success rate on them firing, the other 70% is all misfires.

Not sure if I'll be free but if I am and this actually happens then I'd be happy to join in. A Nerf war sounds fun. I've got a steampunked nerf gun. :)  Triva would be rad. Wish I had a rad firefly cosplay but no such luck. I do own a Jayne hat though.

That's what I get for not paying attention to things.

I'm figuring lunch-ish on saturday, just a small get together in a dis-ued corner of the game room. It seems that the nerf duel idea's been shot down. So that's gone. I'll work on the Whedon trivia, but that's on the back burner after: Classes, Job Hunt, Welding Certification, Prop fabrication for Fanime, getting parts to start work on my Callahan Fullbore Autolock replica. Probably not going to be as exact to the show. Probably going to be a variation on the design with the base elements. Perhaps more of a "mass production" version rather than the highly customized Ccallahan that is Vera.

No worries if you don't get the trivia done. Real life gets in the way of our fantasy ones. ;) Just getting some pictures with everyone will be cool. So the plan is Saturday at 12:00 ish in the game room?

Finished my Jayne cosplay. No Vera however. I did find a decent looking toy pistol (western revolver) that meets the Fanime Weapons policy requirements and have rigged a holster for it. I will get it peace bonded on Saturday.

I haven't heard from you and would like to know if you want this gathering on the official list. I was thinking that the new patio location with the tables would be a good location to hold the trivia and the gathering. It is available @ noon on Saturday. PM me the info

Plan?.....Ummm...not a clue. Well Sunday I'm going to be in costume for the Valve Gathering. Though if I can get my gear together for my HECU Engi. cosplay, I can easily swap to my Wastelander from that. If I have to fall back to my hunter cosplay it may be harder to change because of the stage makeup I'll be using. (well.. I said wastelander, doesn't necessarily mean that isn't a ghoul.)

I'll see what I can do.

So I picked some gum for peeps to use to bet with (but you can always bring your own individually packaged gum... UN-chewed please :P ) and if peeps just want to play some 21 with me I think Rodney will be cool with that :) I know 21 better than Texas Hold Em.

Rodney will need to check in with the gatherings table (1FCC GET) at 11:40 am and then we will meet all of you out @ CPMS!

Hope to meet lots of you out there for this!
Love to all the Josh Whedon fans!... and everyone else of course :)

This gathering was a smash hit...

Five Kaylees, two Mals and a Jayne showed up. the guy at the table across from us looked like he could have passed for Simon.


Considering either Wash or Badger for next year.... Provided I can make next year.

Played (and learned how to play to an extent) Majong, and I was cosplayed as what Wash probably would have been dressed if he'd had more time to prep for the trip in "war Stories"

Either way, the gathering went rather well, pity I didn't have my camera. I know there were quite a few pics taken.

Hi! I was one of the Kaylees at the gathering.

It's too bad I was late! I mixed up times because on the gathering lists it had the time for pictures as the time for the gathering.

Had fun telling you guys the Chinese names for the Ma Zhong pieces too. Hope to see you guys next time. Maybe someone will come as a River or an Anara, eh?

Yeah I was please at the turn out. Thanks for starting this thread Rodney_Pheonix. I had a good time with everyone playing mahjong. I will work on Vera for next year. Thanks for the help with the tile names Green_Tea!

I will post a link to the pictures as soon as I get the uploaded to photo bucket.

Oh and having 5 Kaylees was awesome!

If I ever get any of the chaos dealt with over here I'll start work on a "mass production model" of the Callahan.

I still feel that Vera is more of a highly tooled custom machine, at least for the most part, so I'll focus on a weapon that's more likely to be the base model. IE: No folding stock/shell holder and such.


Thanks for dropping in both of you.

I am still planning to attend Fanime 2011, don't worry. I just got wrapped up in other things like classes and housing repairs.

The Callahan project is being delayed due to family issues and school work however I do intend to take ceramics this spring and make a set of Firefly themed Majong tiles, time permitting of course and provided I can come up with good designs for them.

I know my friend already wrote the post for me, but I figured I'd make an official appearance myself. I be Frank, and I'm definitely showing up as Jayne, hat included. ;D I'm way stoked, although I'm not sure if I'm staying completely cannon and wearing the exact outfit he wore when he got the hat... we'll see how easy it will be to recreate.

Anyway, see you in the world!

Just a repost of what I told ya at the con Saph, but here's the suggestions the people at my gathering had:

A list of all the gatherings to be run off and put in the attendee bags along with a decoder for locations so that people aren't "Whuh?...where?"

That and letting staffers know at the locations in question as to what events are when and where. The guys at the hangout apparently had no clue someone was hosting a gathering there at 1 and I got a deer in headlights look when I brought it to their attention.

Another one is to find this bucket of bubble gum and keep it at the gathering check in table so I can pick it up next year....that one's my suggestion.


Other than that it went off well.




Plans for next year:....presently drawing a blank.

A list of all the gatherings to be run off and put in the attendee bags along with a decoder for locations so that people aren't "Whuh?...where?"
We have already figured to leave a copy of the locations key @ all info desks & Cosplayer Hangout location info, but we don't want to shorten the # of gatherings by the FanimeCon deadlines for printing so I do the Gatherings Info boards. All the information will be available at the Cosplayer Hangout next year. See that thread for more info on the Hangout.
That and letting staffers know at the locations in question as to what events are when and where. The guys at the hangout apparently had no clue someone was hosting a gathering there at 1 and I got a deer in headlights look when I brought it to their attention.
You might have caught the staff change and they weren't sure. I will make sure the events & rules for the room are clearly posted for next year.
Another one is to find this bucket of bubble gum and keep it at the gathering check in table so I can pick it up next year....that one's my suggestion.
I tossed it because it was so old, but I will look into buying fresh gum for next year :)

Glad it went well and I hope to have more time next year to actually play :P

Yes. I will be there for sure. I might end up cosplaying a reaver though.. because.. well... it'd be fun and different.

Holy mother of god this was the biggest and most attended of my firefly/Whedon Appreciation gatherings to-date....and dare I say most successful?

I think I will actually have to organize things more, i was expecting... seven or eight not....I'd say 20 or so?


Shiny. I look foreward to next year and I'll probably have a mahjong set of my own, and I'll look into the card game they were using in Firefly itself for next year.

Hey :) I was wondering if anyone has pics form this gathering <3

I was the Kaylee who arrived pretty late and did a small recording for firefly characters playing cards :P That will probably be put up by next Saturday Since my friend with the camera got pretty sick^^;


But Yeah, I have NO pics of my Kaylee Cosplay at ALL. :P

My camera currently is someplace not here at the moment. I'll be sorting that out in the next week or so and should have my stuff uploaded in a bit. It's been a chaotic month.


Also nice work on the video. Wish she shots showing the cards themselves had made the cut, but well beggers can't be choosers.

Still alive. Camera is still missing. I presently have no idea where it is and life has been chaotic all summer.


I also never found where the Fanime Group photos had been posted. I'll bother Saph today and ask.

Yes.


Anyway poll time.

When do folks want this? Evening, afternoon or morning? And which day? Saturday or Sunday?


Personally my vote is for evening Saturday.

Also, be advised, Fox is being weird about Firefly again and shutting down folks for infringing on their copyright by selling Jayne's silly hats.

So in case the fellow whedonites missed it, dark horse is teasing at doing a serenity comic.

My life has been kinda upside down since January and it's finally settled down, so I'll be able to post the pictures I took in the next few days once I find the camera again. I swear I had the damn thing last night.

I still live, however I'm in oregon now working for the Forest service, however, with any luck (and a position over winter) I'll probably have enough vacation time accrued to make it to fanime (or well be able to take off the day before and the day after for the drive in and out).

Yes the plan is to make it to Fanime next year. I'm also looking to add to my prop arsenal and possibly replicate the cryo crate that River was stored in for that one episode to haul all the props around and make for a nice stage prop for next year's photoshoot.

Haven't really looked into that yet. Been kinda busy with work and whatnot.


Anyway, so in about a month I will be moving to a new place, with a garage, which will allow me to resume woodworking and whatnot. And I will be, if nothing ruins my plans, creating an arsenal.

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to peacebond them all though, also a few of the weapons (kalash, spas 12 and all my reaver weapons are in another state to name a few)... I'm thinking snazzy suit, letting my hair turn into an eagle and winging it as Nic Cage as the lord of war... it will certainly be interesting if I roll a trolly up with a crate full of arms up to the rovers peacebonding station.

First page updated! We have a time, and a place.


Also I may be somehow managing to get most of my props brought up to Fanime by a friend.

additionally I may also be dead tired and half asleep. It'll depend on whether I get friday off or not.

So I kinda fell off the face of the earth for a while buuuut I got my photos uploaded, can't say the're that good though (did get a nice new camera after the fact though)

So my plan is to hopefully be around to host this one once again.


here's a link to my album from the gathering.


Also the Kalash's stock broke off so, gonna have to either fix it, turn it into vera, or make another.
