AWESOME!!! I will be there as Richard from Tales of Graces :D See you guys there!

Raine sage tales of symphonia, I will be there. I can't wait for this gathering. I would be happy with early Saturday or Sunday.
Title: Re: Official "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: Kell-chan on April 15, 2013, 10:13:39 PM
Updated from here and coscom!

Would Saturday @ noon work, or would you guys prefer 11 AM? Looking over the gathering schedule, it might be difficult to get earlier than noon.
Title: Re: Official "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: theamazingmugi1495 on April 16, 2013, 07:50:11 AM
Saturday at 12 is fine with me as far as I know :D
Title: Re: Official "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on April 16, 2013, 10:00:09 AM
I would try for earlier but sat at 12 is fine to.
Title: Re: Official "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: Kell-chan on April 16, 2013, 10:23:06 AM
Okay, I'll put 11 AM up there tentatively, with noon as a second choice.

As for locations, any preference there? I think I would prefer outdoors, but I'm not entirely sure how much the construction has affected the space there.

Post by: Haunterluvcookies on April 16, 2013, 01:57:11 PM
How about the park? That would be nice for photos of the different series. :)
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: Kell-chan on April 16, 2013, 05:45:39 PM
Ah, I was thinking that myself! It would also be less crowded than in front of the convention center.

My kid sister (Markirs), pending which day this pulls through, will be Emil Castagnier!

Emiiiiil. As a Richter cosplayer, this pleases me immensely. Haha.

Okay, I'll stop being creepy. Added to the list!

Yayyy! Thank you so much for organizing!

My cosplay group and I will be going as Guy Cecil, Natalia Luzu Kimlasca-Lanvaldear, Anise Tatlin, and Asch from Tales of the Abyss.

I am also posting on my group's behalf to say that unfortunately for our gathering interests we'll be doing a panel from noon to 1PM (an awesome posing panel that people should definitely check out if they have time, I might add!), so we won't be able to make a 12PM gathering. The four of us would prefer something in the afternoon between 2PM-5PMish if possible but 11AM works reasonably for us too. Thanks again for putting this together, Kell-chan! We look forward to seeing everyone :)
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: Kell-chan on April 17, 2013, 12:13:17 PM
Excellent, more series!

As for the time, would 10 AM work better for all, with 11 AM as a back-up? It sounds like most people prefer earlier times.
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on April 17, 2013, 10:05:20 PM
early the better on sat would be best I think.
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: angelXboy on April 17, 2013, 10:36:27 PM
Ah I would like to debut my Jude Mathis costume but someone who ever is Richard would be so lonely as the only Graces character. So I'll have to do an Asbel with that Richard!  ;D

I'm going as Yuri Lowell from Tales of Vesperia!

Post by: Kell-chan on April 18, 2013, 08:53:33 PM
Oh god that is soooo early D:

Ahh, too early to hang out with us awesome folks? I can adjust the time to 10:30 if that's better. Should still give us time to canoodle before the Abyss group's panel, and keep it early enough to avoid competition for this time slot from other gatherings.

Either that, or we throw out the morning slot altogether and go for something later in the afternoon/early evening, like 5 PM. I have no idea if that works better for most, however.
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: angelXboy on April 18, 2013, 11:05:10 PM
Lol yeah it's just that I come from Fremont which is like just half an hour away(so there is no point in me staying at a hotel). Also taking into the account I have to wake up even earlier to get ready and stuff.
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on April 18, 2013, 11:55:40 PM
I like earlier better for the gathering.
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: angelXboy on April 19, 2013, 03:37:12 PM
I'll find a way to get there on time.
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: Jets on April 22, 2013, 11:15:20 PM
I'm the same Jets from cosplay.com
But anyways, 10am should be good for me as long as I'm not too tired and lazy. But it's more of me being a slowpoke with getting ready in general.

Oh me too, although my Decus is notorious for being difficult to wake up. Haha. I'll just beat him with a pillow until he gets up. XD

Post by: Mick C on April 24, 2013, 10:51:00 PM
I'll have Yuri Lowell and my girlfriend as Judith from Tales of Vesperia, but I'm not 100% sure we won't have prior commitments keeping us from attending gatherings.  But we'll try for it!
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!

If Celine is going to do Asbel, I'll gladly switch to Jude since no one else is doing it yet.

They put a tentative list of the gatherings and there times. I didn't see the Tales gathering, does anyone know time and date yet? Thanks :D

I have to submit a confirmation, but I thought it didn't open until May 2nd. I'm checking now and I'll post when I have news.

EDIT: I've submitted the time slot. I'll post again when I hear back.

Hi ^^
This is the first time I will be attending Fanime and I am glad there are so many tales of fans here also.

I just came to the US so everything here is still new for me.

I will definitely come to the gathering on Saturday.
I will be cosplaying as Milla Maxwell From TOX

Here's a picture of me as Milla ^^, hope to see everyone there.

Ah great so there IS an official Tales meet up. I will be cosplaying as Luke and my friend will be there as Tear for sure.

Because we didn't know about this meeting up until today Tear is hosting a secondary meetup on sunday at 1:30 (left of the main entrance under the trees) for a cosplay picnic if anyone else wants more Tales.

Hi there~ I'll be coming as Sophie from ToG ~(=w=~) Oh, but I also have my ToV school uniform for my Yuri cosplay so Im not sure what to pick D:

Oh my gosh more Abyss cosplayers how exciting! All we need is a Jade now and we'll have all the playable characters! And I think I'd definitely like to drop by for the cosplay picnic if that's still happening :) Where can we find more info?

Also on the topic of additional meetups, there will also be a gathering hosted by American Cosplay Paradise at the Toys Logic Booth at 2PM:
http://www.acparadise.com/acp/events.php?eid=153

Is anyone planning on going to that one as well?

Oh, my group might swing by there if we don't have anything else going on. :)
Title: Re: 2013 "Tales of" Series Gathering!
Post by: xac on May 12, 2013, 07:14:22 PM
The Tales picnic sounds like fun! I'll probably be going as Guy to one and Will from Legendia to the other.

Any other Legendia cosplayers out there?

I might go as Lloyd from Symphonia if I don't sell my cosplay beforehand online or at the swap meet... Kinda doing a closet cleaning right now and selling all of my cosplays to afford rent. If I do sell him, I may just go as Hermana from Tales of Innocence.

And we're officially confirmed for Saturday @ 10 AM! We'll be meeting at the big snake statue at the park across the street. My group will be there a bit earlier, so look for a guy hauling a giant purple coffin!

We've also been offered an official Fanime photographer for the gathering! Woo!
