Yay, Houshi no Kuni love! I will be Diamond, most likely on Friday or Sunday - CLAMP gathering will be on Saturday. If this gathering date changes - would love to attend! ;D

ooh~ I'm same with Lakari.
I'm cosing Houseki on Sunday, since there's a Fate gathering on Saturday :)
I'll keep my eyes peeled~

Since Saturday seems to be of interest, I might be able to push it to a Sunday afternoon; the Fire Emblem gathering is on Sunday.

Would anyone be interested in a poll?

I am down for Sunday afternoon for Houseki no Kuni gathering! Any day other than Saturday works for me honestly.

Hello Everyone, thank you all so much for your feedback!

I've set up a google form survey/poll to see where everyone is and what you'd all prefer. Getting a general headcount of how many people are interested and what time is most convenient for everyone will really help!

https://goo.gl/forms/SqEY9aztX8oKbr4N2

I'd like to close this survey by this Friday, March 30th, so that I can submit our gathering to be official.
Happy Spring, everyone! :)

Post by: thecrazycyborggirl on March 30, 2018, 09:58:43 PM
Hello all!

Reminder to fill out the poll if you haven't done so yet!

Thank you so much for your insight thus far; thank you to whoever brought up the Studio Ghibli concert at 2pm to my attention. I know that putting the gathering at 1pm might put a strain on your schedule, but as the SJ Center for Performing Arts is across the street from the con, perhaps attending the first 30 minutes of the gathering might still be possible. I'll keep you updated as soon as I can!

UPDATE: I'm also considering making little Houseki no Kuni art sketches to hand out to everyone as a token of thanks for attending this gathering! Let me know if you're interested in a sketch and which HnK character you'd want a sketch of by Sunday, May 20th so I know how many sketches to draw and for who! You can PM me your preferred name/username if it doesn't match your forum username and you'd like to keep it private.

Aww that's so sweet! If its not too much would love a Padparadscha one <3
Thanks for coordinating~~

Post by: thecrazycyborggirl on April 03, 2018, 11:07:49 PM
Sounds good! I have Paparadscha noted down! Please let me know if you haven't yet what gems you all would like a sketch of!

UPDATE: Our official gathering time will be on Sunday, at 1pm at G8 Location! UnlimitedThaiTea and I have been talking to each other and have decided to co-host! I will be waiting at the Art Sculpture in front of the convention center at 12:50pm for those who are lost, and will take you to the gathering location. Hopefully everything works out; let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

Also: If you are debating whether or not to cosplay or don't have a cosplay for this gathering yet, I am selling a Houseki Gems' Black Uniform/Jumpsuit! I ordered the wrong size and this one was a bit too small for me; it would best fit someone under 5'3", bust 34 inches, waist 26 inches. Looking to sell it for $30, pick up at con, but am willing to negotiate! Please private message me for more details.

Hello! I'll be coming to the meetup as either Diamond or Ghost Quartz. I'd love a sketch of Ghost Quartz if it isn't too much trouble! Thank you for coordinating!

Hello! I'm so happy someone actually made a HnK meetup and I am very excited to see everyone! However, I unfortunately won't be cosplaying as any of the gems, but I still would love to attend and take pictures XD I'm wondering if you'll still be offering drawings to non-houseki no Kuni cosplayers as well? But I understand if it's primarily for the cosplayers and it's totally fine by me!! I'll see all you lovelies there ;))

Phos! My costume was put together last-minute for another con, and I'll probably leaving all the fixups for the last-minute again because that's how I do things, but unless things go horribly wrong I'll be there :)

Fanime is now officially less than one month away! Posting this update to bump this thread in case some people haven't seen it.
Please note the photography order so that we can all be prepared and make this gathering efficient!

I will be making small drawings of the gems for anyone who wants one! Please reply to this thread with the gem of your choice!

I am also still selling an Asian size M (small) Houseki gems' black jumpsuit for anyone who is interested or still needs a cosplay for this gathering! I ordered the wrong size, it was too small for me. Pick up at con is an option! Price is negotiable. Message me or DM me on instagram (@thecrazycyborggirl) if you're interested!
