Title: Bleach Gathering 2008! (The Aftermath!)
Post by: Yukari Kaiba on June 03, 2007, 07:08:52 PM
Welcome to the official Bleach Gathering Thread for Fanime Con 2008! 07's gathering was a huge success, and i would love to be able to lead this gathering again. also, it seemed everyone enjoyed the pre-gathering game of Frisbee that was going on right by the fountains, so i figure why not make it tradition and hold a game of Frisbee right before we take photos? :D like this year, we'll take generic group photos by the fountains, and then migrate over to the park to do more specific groups, fan requests, etc. i hope to see everyone who went last year come again for 2008's gathering! :D

I'll probably have the budget to do Hitsugaya this time around, but I might simply go with another Bleach character or someone else entirely; it's too early to tell.

i think i'll vamp up the hollow bankai ichigo and go as that again. people really seemed to like it...and maybe save up some more money for even crazier contacts, but why do they have to be $300?

ill add you.

are the contacts you want to get scalera? those usually cost a lot more than regular contacts, at least as far as i know.

Hey, my friends forgot to alert me to Fanime 07 >.> I'm horrible with knowing what day it is... so I didn't go last year... le sigh... however, I'm going fabric shopping soon and I'm sooo going to go as a Bleach Character in the '08 one!

I'd love to go as Bankai Renji, and I'm going to start up on the shinigami costume soonish, so count me in!

you know i don't know what they were called. they were at the contact shop thing last year in the special order list.  they could have been scalera, but i'm not too good with names

hey i might be going as Bankai Renji too! *Renjis unite! XD* ill add you to the list ^^

@ShadowSplat13 - scalera contacts are contacts that cover the entire eye, whereas regular contacts just cover the iris and leave the white of the eye showing ^^
Title: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: ShadowSplat13 on June 26, 2007, 07:57:26 PM
oooh so those types of contacts are scalera...wow i feel smart. anyways the only problem i have with them is the fact that i wear corrective contacts and they might interfere with them. and also the fact they were around $300 for them. seems a little pricey for something im not sure how well they will work
Title: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: Yukari Kaiba on June 26, 2007, 10:49:24 PM
if you order them off of cosplaylab.com, its possible they can make them in the prescription you need ^^

Post by: ilovepocky~ on July 11, 2007, 09:04:56 PM
I'm a bit hesitant (partly because of making the costume/Tobiume itself and that I'm unsure about the character), but I might be going as Hinamori for '08.

um. please don't stab me. :)

I liked the video but you know calling Fanime a sci-fi con was just weird....

Post by: ilovepocky~ on August 02, 2007, 05:28:56 PM
true, I've never really thought of Fanime as a sci-fi convention xDD.

the video was cute. I spy chibi-ulquiorra! XD. he was adorable (^-^)!

Eh, if I'm able to complete the costume in time, I might be going as Yoruichi, in the outfit that she wears when she fights Soi Fon.

Blargh at the thought of making/finding a totally backless top though.  And getting the hornet's crest onto it.

Looks good.  I think the blade part over the back "hook"-things (I have absolutely no idea what they're called >.>) is a little longer though.

I'll have trouble making Soifon's Suzumebachi. =.=
I still have like, 8 or something months, though. More than enough time to make it.

Hmm, I think I'll make a Kon doll if I have enough time [and money], too. :3

I meant the part... blargh, I don't know how to describe this...  The part at the end of the sword, the straight end of the blade after the hooks should be a bit longer.

Like if you (theoretically) stabbed someone with the sword.  The point where you stabbed them up to the beginning of the hooks should be longer.

If that makes any sense. >.>
Title: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: Yukari Kaiba on August 13, 2007, 10:16:10 PM
maybe posting a picture would help better describe what part of the sword you're talking about ^^

Post by: Reinna on August 13, 2007, 11:55:03 PM
Probably. xDD

http://img383.imageshack.us/my.php?image=sogyonokotowarilp5.png

Indicating the part.

But eh, making it longer also makes it easier to poke into someone/break off.  So whatever works best in making it easiest to lug it around, I suppose.

yea ok originally had the "blade" set at 26 inches and had the 2nd blade sprout out at 13 inches, now the blade is 30 inches and it still sprouts back at 13 inches so i added 4 in to the length :P thx a lot

I'll be there in 08 to join in the fun.
I visited Fanime last year for my first time and saw the group cosplay. It looked like you all had such fun.
I'll wear my Ukitake costume that I finished for this year's San D Con.

If anyone working on those prop swords (Sogyo no Kotowari) wants some help, I'll point you to the website I am setting up for some others on how I made mine. Just let me know!

Ah!  :D
Running on different boards with working lots of overtime this week at work, I'm a little frazzled right now.

So if you're dorming, that would make it little trickier, but probably still doable. If you got your stuff together for one of the breaks, or did a half hour  here or there over a period of a time, you'd have them done in time for Fanime!
You could also try the cardboard katana method and customize off of that.

And yes, I enjoyed Fanime last year, and that's why I want to go back this year.

I'm on episode 108.  I know I'm behind ~~  Question for those way ahead of me.  If anyone asked you if it's worth watching the Bontou series, what's your answer?

My answer is skip the series.  However, I like to watch the episodes with Hitsugaya and Matsumoto  :)

meeeh i only watched the bounto arc just to say ive seen it and what not. personally i thought the final battle with the head bounto guy (whatever his name is) with ichigo kinda failed. only thing i really liked was the mod souls (i love Nova XD ), and the captains' battles with the other bounto. i actually found myself rooting for Mayuri (who isnt even one of my favorite characters) to win his fight with the old guy xD

I agree with you Yukari. I did not like it that much. It was kind of a let down after the soul society arc. The fights were boring compared to the ones before and I also hated Uryu's new outfit and bow. I just kept thinking get to the next arc, get to the next arc.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Yukari and Ryumon.  I finished the episode Ichigo battling Kariya.  My favorite episodes are the battles between the Bontou and the Captains and Vice Captains.  When I watched the Bontou battle the Captains in Soul Society, I said, "The Bontou have no chance against the Captains."  Hitsugaya overkilled his battle with Koga ^^

@narutofan17 - ive added you the list for both Renji and Kenpachi with question marks. as far as which one you want to do, which character do you like more? is there one you think you might have more fun cosplaying as? thinking about stuff like that can help you make a decision ^^

MAJOR UPDATE!
alrighty everybody, listen up: I've been in contact with BSaphire (for those of you who don't know, she's the one who organizes all the gatherings and creates the official gatherings list that gets posted), and this year she is giving the biggest gatherings (those with 60+ people, like Bleach), first choice for the most popular time slots, ranging from 12 to 3 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We already have our day picked out (Saturday), but i was wondering what time within the range given would you guys like to have the gathering? I was thinking around 1 or 2, with the pre-gathering game of Bleach!Frisbee starting half an hour before. any thoughts?
Title: Re: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: ajllybean on November 06, 2007, 04:58:59 PM
you can count my group in!!!!!!! I will be Matsumoto/Halibel (Arrancar). Xaviar will be Ichigo (Bankai ver.)/ one of the Arrancar (not decided yet). TseUq will be Orihime (school uniform)/Hitsugaya (academy version)/ Grimmjow. We also have possibly one more person in our cosplay group who might be doing Szayel Aporro (Arrancar). But for now you can count the three of us in. Ill get back to you about the 4th person. Can't wait to see everyone!!!

so this was brought up over in the thread i have for the gathering on cosplay.com, but theres a possibility of meeting up a bit early before the frisbee game to go have lunch. this hasn't been decided on yet, but its something ill keep in mind if theres enough demand to do it ^^

Ooo awesome I would totally be down for something like lunch before hand ^^

Oh and on other news another memeber of our team has chosen to join the espada group!! You can put Mishelly down for Luppi ^^  I think I shall check out this c.com thread you speak of lol.

Lunch sounds good, where would you suggest?

Downtown SJ isn't the best place to have a bunch of teens dressed up in costumes walking around looking for some place to eat.

I think a good place which is close could be House of Pizza. Its on the Hilton side of the con (near the arcade room) and they have AMAZING pizza there.

... just a thought. People might not want to spill red sauce on their white captain robes lol.

Do Arrancars eat pizza?
 ;)
Can SJ survive a large, hungry Bleach group seeking out a place to eat?
(Sounds like a funny adventure story starting here.)

That's a very good point about picking a place that could deal with a large crowd and get everyone through with food and bills paid in a comfortable fashion.

Maybe someone should write a script of all bleach chars seeking food instead of fighting... WTF O_o;

And... iono if arrancar eat pizza, but has anyone found Aizen-sama's secret to Tea in Las Noches, place of no water?! O.o;

yay im happy to see theres interest in the Bleach Lunch meetup :D

now that i think about it, pizza wouldnt be a bad idea - pizza is good for large groups, and if theres a large enough group it shouldnt be too much for everyone to pitch in a couple bucks to pay.

though the idea of the Arrancar going to a Mexican food place is pretty entertaining too XD (can someone say Nachos Grande? get it?instead of Menos Grande? wow that was my lame attempt to be funny XD).

well either way i stoked to see the lunch idea is getting interest :D

The Arrancar version of nachos would truly be a scary thing to behold, I'm sure! (Thinks of ideas for bogus ads for Las Noches....)
Good point about Aizen and Tea in a place of no water--he must have a secret kitchen or something.

Pizza place....hmmm....
Could also see photo ops like Rukia showing soul reapers how to use straws....
This whole thing could provide some very unique photo ops and great stories to tell in addition to everything else this group is doing. The day is shaping up like it will be very entertaining!

i totally agree - a Bleach Pizza Party could provide endless photo ops, and with the way the gathering is starting to take shape it looks like its going to be really fun. Pizza party, frisbee game, AND the regular gathering? wow we Bleach people sure know how to throw a gathering XD

The prices for House of Pizza are expensive.  I purchaserd two party size pizzas for $50.00.  It's the best tasting pizza I ever ate XD

I did a similar lunch gathering for Full Metal Alchemist in Fanime'06 the Post FMA Gathering.  The FMA cosplayers and I went to Jack-In-The-Box, got lunch, and walked back to the convention center and ate, talk, and have fun.

Yukari, I suggeset we start the official gathering at 12pm like Fanime'07.

@ININ - how many slices did each of those pizzas have? $50 for a large group of people might not be too bad. then again, its not confirmed thats where we're going to eat, so we still have plenty of time to come up with something. and thanks for your input on the time slot issue ^^

Does anyone like Pineapple on pizza? ^^; Its delicious for my opinion but then i dont want to suggest it as a topping if noone likes it. Maybe we should have a poll on what we want as a topping (however pepperoni or cheese is a universal liking).

I cant wait to chill with new people XD i didnt get to go to fanime 06 because i had to preform at Carnegie Hall in NYC :( but i went at 07 as Sephiroth~ =3

50 dollar pizza? With the amount of people that seem to be going to the gathering, i dont think money will be that much of an issue

FYI everyone, it hasn't been decided yet where we're eating, let alone doing the lunch meet up yet ^^; theres definitely been interest shown for the lunch meet up both here and the thread i have running on cosplay.com - i'll be able to get a better idea if its going to happen as the convention gets closer. also, i only suggested pizza since its generally a food liked by everyone and its easy to split for large groups of people. once we've actually confirmed the lunch meet up is happening, we can start figuring out the details of it ^^

The party size is about the party size of Little Cesar.  The $25.00 pizza is expensive, but it’s the best $25.00 pizza I ever ate  :)

@ININ - how many slices did each of those pizzas have? $50 for a large group of people might not be too bad. then again, its not confirmed thats where we're going to eat, so we still have plenty of time to come up with something. and thanks for your input on the time slot issue ^^


The party size is about the party size of Little Cesar.  The $25.00 pizza is expensive, but it’s the best $25.00 pizza I ever ate  :)

Does anyone like Pineapple on pizza? ^^; Its delicious for my opinion but then i dont

I cant wait to chill with new people XD i didnt get to go to fanime 06 because i had to preform at Carnegie Hall in NYC :( but i went at 07 as Sephiroth~ =3


IIRC, House of Pizza doesn’t serve Pineapple.  Share with us what you did at Carnegie Hall XD

Well.. went for the entire fanime weekend in 06 (was kinda depressed). Our school Wind Ensemble was invited to preform at Carnegie Hall where we world premiered a couple pieces that our band director had comissioned for us. I believe rumor has it that our high school wind ensembles one of the best in the US (well i believe it is, been commented by some famous people like Eugene Corpran or however you spell his last name). So we preformed there in Carnegie Hall and had a cruise around the bay thingy... the hudson? maybe im not sure. Had to dress in Tux or dress clothes the entire trip.

Wish i couldve been at fanime though D:


Well you asked ININ xD (!@#$ no pineapple?!? D:  :'( )

Yukari Kaiba  I purchased two party size last year and there were about 18-23 of us.  Each of us had two or three slices.  The slices are thin crust.

Kanzake  I apologize ^__^ if I made you feel bad.  My thinking was your group played at Carnegie Hall and you music band kick ass.  Just wanted to keep the Bleach topic going and find out a little bit about everyone :)

Everyone  I'm also taking pics during the meet ups, official gathering, and the lunch.  Those who come early, I gather small groups at random for pics.

LOL XD this reminds me of a con this past summer ...there were lots of 'No-Face' from Spirited Away wandering around and the Bleach people thought they sorta looked like Gillians >.<  So we went to fight one....No-face got depressed, "I am not a hollow" <-seems he got that a lot!!

That would be great!!  Anyone up for the ...erm I'd say challenge but really compared to all the other designs I would say hollows are simple XD lol! 

Here are some at the Bleach gathering at AX this year (http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/cc65/canadianstrawberry/Anime%20Expo%2007/Picture185.jpg)

That is awesome!
Especially the one in the middle front. Really captured the look with the draping of the fabric! And looks like a great job on the mask, too.
Some of the Hollow designs are good for fast costumes, if you had someone that wanted to do something last minute. And the rest of them...a lot of work.

The question is, will Gillians eat pizza, if they come?
:)

i totally know what you mean ^^ with the lunch, frisbee game, photoshoot, AND the chess game, Saturday is shaping up to be pretty damn epic if i do say so myself.

oh FYI for those who don't frequent the Cosplay.com thread - i highly encourage you to check that thread often, particularly if you're interested in participating in the possible chess game. im organizing it with the people who might bring the board over on that thread so the participant list won't be here. now im not starting the list yet only because doragon and kuroneko (the awesome people who have the board 8D) aren't entirely sure yet whether they can bring it. ill be starting up the chess game list like maybe a month or two before con day. just keep it in mind if you want to participate in it (remember, its Arrancar VS Shinigami ^^).

Shinigami vs Arrancar chess.. hehe fun, would be hilarious if it was like human chess, big board with each character as a different piece

maybe a bunch of menos grande and other gillians as pawns while arrancar and the 3 ex capts as the back row

Captains as the back row and vice capts/lts as pawns and other pieces... would be funny but i dont know if there is a space big enough for said human size Bleach Chess XD


but nonetheless... chess, a game of wits!

aizen will probably win... that cheater. i mean he does nothing but sit in Las Noches and drink tea from an unknown source as it is, what else does he do? probably play chess with gin! >:O

over at the park - where we'll be moving to after generic group photos at the fountains to take more specific shots - theres plenty of room to hold a chess game. and if you take a look at the Bleach thread i have over at cosplay.com the people who are possibly bringing the board (kuroneko and doragon) posted a link to a picture of the board, and its pretty big, so i think the chess game is something we can do.

I'm not too sure about this, since wasn't at the gathering last year: what's the photo shoot after the general group pic like? Like...requests from the crowd? "Pre-ordered" requests?

What do you mean?  Like after the huge ol' everyone in the picture shot?  or? 
More or less at gatherings you do all the default pics; like with Bleach: each of the different divisions, the arrancar, the ryoka, the vaizards etc etc  Then afterwards pretty much if you think of another good idea put it out there and everyone goes 'ok' and does it XD 
I hope that made sense.

heres how it went last year:
@the fountain:Captains, Lieutenants, Arrancar/Vaizard, Shikai/Bankai, Urahara Shoten (Yoruichi was put in this group),Soul Society rescue group (Ichigo, Uryu, Chad, Orihime, Rukia), and then we had a huge group BWAHAHA picture at the end.

@the park:Divisions 1-13, women of Bleach, men of Bleach, Renji & Ichigo fighting over Rukia, and of course there were yaoi pairing requests XD (yeeeah, that was interesting...made a new friend out of it though XD lol).

basically the photos at the park are more specific and include scene reenactments and fan requests, where as photos at the fountains are generic groups.

Instead of carrying around my wooden Tensa Zangetsu I am going to get an inflatable Shikai Zangetsu.

It is less likely to break and I can actually hit people with it! If I need to put it away I can just deflate it and store it in my packpack!

The Powershot A610 is the model of my camera and 5.0MP means each pic at maximum setting is 5,000,000 pixels if it answers your question ^__^  The camera is a point and shoot camera.  Easy to use.  Here is a review with pictures http://www.steves-digicams.com/2005_reviews/a610.html

Planning on coming up to Fanime this year (first time!), along with my younger sister.  I owe her a shihakushou, and I think she's planning on a random Fourth Squad member, since she doesn't want to mess with wigs and doesn't have hair for any of the characters.  I'll either be going as Nanao or, possibly, Unohana, as I have both of those costumes put together already (though Unohana would require a new Minazuki, as I broke mine at AX).  We'll see for sure as it gets closer, though.  Nanao is more likely, even though I know my usual Taichou wn't make it.

@localuvr - you're more than welcome to come to the gathering! the gathering isn't just for the cosplayers but for Bleach fans too :D. its going to be held on saturday, but the time hasn't been determined yet. im hoping to confirm a time by the end of the month/early january, as thats when the slots for the official list go up and i want us to get a good time (not too early, but not too late :3).

speaking of which, does 1 sound ok with everybody?

How about 2? 'Cuz if there's lunch then lunch at like 12:30. 12:30-1:30 lunch, relax, hang out. 1:30-2:00 Game. then 2:00-?:?? photos...  Just my two cents. xD. Unless you want to catch other photoshoots, there's usually nothing too exciting going on in that time frame.

So whatever time works best, but allows just enough time between the various events so we don't end up with some large group running from place to place.

Although the running fast and wild through the Con and parts of SJ would certainly suit some of the Bleach characters....

I've already decided that day shall be Bleach Bleach and more Bleach!
So whatever time works best, but allows just enough time between the various events so we don't end up with some large group running from place to place.
 ;)
Although the running fast and wild through the Con and parts of SJ would certainly suit some of the Bleach characters....

Shunpo race?

Cant be just shunpo, Arrancar have a different name for it... i cant remember it but i remember! XD.

Well, this little gathering seems to be kickin butt already D: when is fanime.. *goes to mark off his calander*

We can have Shunpo/ _____ Racing outside at the park... lol

LOL that would be HILARIOUS, although running around might not be the best thing to do with some cosplays. (I am NOT running with that mask on my head; it's going to give me a concussion.)

It would be fun for those who can, though. Race around the park! xD;

(It's sonido, btw. At least I think it is.)

P.S. Don't forget hirenkyaku for the Quincies!

Stampede? ROTFL!
The imagery....

The running part could be pretty bad, too. If it's a warm day and you've got a lot of layers, and yes, we wouldn't want any broken Arrancar, Espada, or Hollow masks, now would we? (Unless you're Nel.)
 ;)

Thinking of other 'silly fun games' there could be the Kenpachis with Yachirus hunting Ichigos quest.
Only, we'd lose the 11th Squad leaders somewhere in SJ until the end of the day. That would be bad.
 ;D

Hm, maybe batting Kon plushies at Hollows in the park to go for the Jinta home run record...but that would be Kon plushie abuse.

As a matter of fact, I will be Nell. xDDD; But if the mask breaks, chances are so will my head, and frankly I value my own head a bit more. :3

...Jinta Home Run with Kon plushies is THE awesome. Adjectives fail to describe the amount of gleeful mental images I got out of that one. xDDDDD Though I doubt there's enough room in SJ for something of that sort, unless we want to rain plushies upon incoming traffic or innocent bystanders taking their afternoon stroll.

Darn, why do I always think of ways things WON'T work? :-\

No illegal drugs playing the Kon Home Run Hitting Contest XD

alrighty guys, im soon going to have to decide on a time for our meetup. heres what i was figuring: hold the gathering at 1, with the Bleach!Frisbee game starting at 12:30. for those who signed up for the lunch (which is still open), we should meet around 11:30 or a little earlier. hows that sound?


My thoughts are to keep the gathering time is 12:00 because the big gatherings have always started at 12:00. Play Bleach!Frisbee at 11:30am.

I thought we are eating lunch after the gathering. You suggested we eat lunch first. Now I'm having second thoughts and eating lunch early is a good idea. How about we have a breakfast gathering instead?

I just really hope no one glomps you. You have no idea how many cosplayers at Fanime get glomped by random fans of all sorts. I remeber this one girl jumped someone who had a really expensive item that went with their cosplay outfit, and it was all ruined because of that one girl. It's also highly unlikely that she could even afford to replace it. =_=; That moment was even embarassing to watch from afar.

aw that'd be really nice of you ^^ you havent missed much on the lunch meeting, we're still talking about it (have yet to decide where). i believe i put up an attendance list either on page 7 or page 8 for the lunch, so if you want to go to that let me know and ill add you ^^

It's so nice to know I can be added to the lunch list, it'd be kinda hurtful if I could cosplay and not bring cookies or nothin.

its not problem at all ^^ i've added you to the lunch group, and thanks again for offering to bring cookies :)

@localuvr - you're more than welcome to come to the gathering! the gathering isn't just for the cosplayers but for Bleach fans too :D. its going to be held on saturday, but the time hasn't been determined yet. im hoping to confirm a time by the end of the month/early january, as thats when the slots for the official list go up and i want us to get a good time (not too early, but not too late :3).

speaking of which, does 1 sound ok with everybody?

Thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much! <3 I'll so be there! Please keep me posted! Thanks!

damn straight! I would hate for someone to mess up a costume I worked so hard into making just because they have an obession with an anime character. Those tyopes of people need lives. =_=; I cosplay for fun and thats it = )

But for the gathering means there is another Luppi Cosplayer I will be Byakuya for the pictures.

its not limited like one person per character, so you can be Luppi if you want. not sure how you'll pull off being two characters for the gathering, but hey if you can work it then by all means go for it. ill put you under both characters ^^

it may be the fact that it's 2 am right now but i had an idea.
a HOLLOW pinata. everyone could take turns whacking at it with their zanpukto.

or maybe a big cardboard/plywood cut-out of a hollow, and you need to throw a Kon plushy through it's hole?

like i said, it's 2am..   o.o;

I second Runewitt's suggestions.  We can wack the pinantas with the flat side, and you don't have to hit the pinanta hard for fear the sword breaks.  Everyone with zanpuktos, you may break the peacebond outside the con.  Just remember to peacebond again before walking around the con ^__^

there's a place near me that does custom Pinantas, i could find out how much it'd range to get a simple one done with a few sketches, etc. it's be cool to do off site at the park or something, where seeing a bunch of shinigami attacking a hollow would seem a bit more.. yeah!

oh, Happy whateveryoucelebrate day!

You know, That could actually work out. As long as we do that in the park area, so we won't break any rules. Maybe the Pinanta could be a symbol for the 2008 gathering. We could do it at the end, after everyone is done taking pictures and everything. It will be a great way to end such a fantastic Bleach gathering next year. I'm not sure how this will work out in the end, but your idea is pretty "fresh & unique". ( how will people chip in for the candy, or are you planning to donate some candy for the pinanta? I already have my hands full with making a good Cd for next years gatherng along with a poster too)  If you want I can probably chip in about $5 for the pinanta?

- - - - - - - - - -Off Topic.

= o There's just so much work to be done. I still have to make one more costume and save up enough money for the entire weekend and all. Ugh; I'm also bringing two new Noobs to the convention and I have to order a hotel room with the use of my Credit card. XD ( all I know, is that the people that plan to go with me better give me money for gas and the room. Otherwise their sleeping outside. = )

the pinata idea sounds awesome. maybe we could fit it in somewhere after we're done taking photos. Not sure if I'll have the funds to help chip in for it (hotel and cosplay expenses consume my monies DX lol). let me ask around at the cosplay.com thread, see what people think of the idea.

as for my cosplay progress (at least as far as Bleach goes), I'm leaning towards wearing Ulquiorra to the gathering - it will be easier for me direct the gathering without having my giant snake/monkey/snunkey Zabimaru with me XD which ill actually be starting construction on after the holiday (my whole winter break is being dedicated to constructing him).
in other news, Happy Holidays everybody!

not sure if Aizen would ever get him one, but if he did i bet Ulquiorra would be a much happier arrancar XD

i'll call the place sometime this week and get a price for it, and depending on my income later+next month i can order it and ask for gathering peoples to throw in a dollar or two to help the cost and teh candy. generic hollow, or something specific?

i dont want to settle on something right away/without other people's imput and then end up not being able to get to fanime, or end up with a lot of people offering money to elp with it and then it not happen.

@Reinna - we're aiming to meet for the lunch gathering around 11, but the place hasn't been determined yet. i believe we're considering House of Pizza (which is connected to the Hilton? correct me if im wrong ININ XD ). i don't want to add the lunch list to the first post only because i don't want people getting the lists confused. the current attendance list is on page 7 i believe.

Yukari, you're correct.  House of Pizza is on the Hilton side of the convention.  After exiting, turn left and walk down Almaden Street towards 280.  The walk is 1/2 a block.

Shouldn't there be a "Pizza Hut" or something of the short nearby? I know last year I went down the street near Mac Donalds with my friends where we ordered pizza. It was probably a block or two from the main convention. I believe it was a family owned buisness. Their prices were pretty fair too.

alrighty guys, with only about 5 months left till Fanime (can you believe it? time flies XD), I'd like to finalize the time for the gathering. Aftering considering time needed for the lunch meetup, I feel we should hold the gathering at 1, with the Bleach!Frisbee game at 12:30. The lunch meetup would be at 11, and after a suggestion from ININ over at the thread at cosplay.com, I think it would be better (and a lot more fun), if we get our food to go (say we do pizza) and bring it over to the park and eat there. hows that sound with everyone?
sample schedule:
11:00-12:30: Bleach! Lunch MeetUp
12:30-1:00: Bleach!Frisbee
1:00- whenever: Bleach gathering

man! everything sounds great. The timing included, sound perfect with all the gatherings that will take place. I have theBleach music set up too. Same goes for the cd player ( it's portable) and a few other things. Right now I'm focusing on the sigh for the gathering. = )

@fanime_love: glad you like the schedule ^^ and thanks for offering to bring music! whats a picnic gathering without some good tunes? can't wait to see the finished sign, too :)

@ININ: no problem - organizing stuff is something i like to do, and especially since its the Bleach gathering, i put extra effort into making sure everything goes smoothly and everyone is happy :D

well, not entirely - im thinking ill be wearing Ulquiorra for the gathering, and Bankai! Renji for the Shonen Jump gathering the next day. The only other cosplay im planning on is Yun Lee from Street Fighter III, which ill be wearing i think either Friday or Monday.

@Runewiit - will do ^^

I'll have to be sure to look for you then = ) My Dad bought me a new digital camera and I can't wiat to test it out on some of the cosplayer this year. If things go well and all (that is, if I save enough money) I want to buy a video camera to tape the event. If I don't get it.. I'll just probably use my digital camera then.

yeah my cosplay schedule for fanime looks like Ulquiorra on Saturday, Bankai! Renji on sunday, and Yun on either Friday or Monday.
ill be using my digital camera to take video too :)

ok so heres a suggestion that was brought up over in the thread at cosplay.com - what do you guys think about just having everyone bring their own food for the lunch gathering? that way everybody can have what they want and nobody is stuck with having to eat something they don't like.
Title: Re: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: fanime_lo-ve on January 08, 2008, 08:52:40 AM
actually that don't sound pretty good.~ cheaper too i suppose. That was we don't have to worry if we get the piece of pizza we want.lol okay. Are we still planning to eat in the park or has that changed too?

While it takes away the fun of Bleachers eating together at a restaurant, it has the benefit of everyone picks their own food and just brings it to eat together in the park....
That would be okay, too!

i just figure that would be an easier way to appease everybody's tastes if we all just bring our own stuff. and i figured if we do have the pinata, the lunch meet up would be the perfect time to do it.

XDDD Wow haven't appeared here in a while.

I agree with kimu about the lunch/picnic. It's a good idea with its own merits, but takes away some of the eat-out-together fun.

Haven't had much time to work on the cosplay, but the "how" is pretty much planned out and all the materials have at least been gathered. Minus a wig. Though unless I get a haircut between now and May...it'd be a bit troublesome to fit all that hair under a wig cap. XD; Hence the reason I wonder why I didn't just pick Unohana and be done with it; goodness knows my hair's long enough. I seem to enjoy making life difficult for myself. XD

ok so since there seems to be a genuine interest in the lunch meet up, im starting up an attendance list for the lunch meet up - this will make it easier when it comes time to making a reservation (if its going to be needed) to say how many are coming.

Bleach! Lunch Gathering Attendance List (12 total)
Shinobi Yukari
ININ
Kanzake
kimu
mouse alchemist
Krnchichiri
Guavi
abcbadcat

@ Death_Note_Matt & Runewitt - ill add you two to the lunch list. i made it separate from the one on the main page so the first post wouldn't get too confusing. ^^

@Asougiru - you don't <i>have</i> to have a sword, but its definitely a main aspect of Histugaya's get up, so i would recommend getting one (or even better, making one! :D)

Title: Re: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: Guavi on January 13, 2008, 08:02:03 PM
It's not that hard to make one. You can do wonders with cardboard, hot glue (the must-have of all cosplayers XD; ), and some well-applied acrylics paint. Of course if you can work with sturdier materials, great, but they tend to be more difficult to manipulate.

you could always use a cheap plastic sword and cover it with clay then pait over it adding details as needed

Post by: Runewitt on January 13, 2008, 10:00:44 PM
if you o a friend has basic wood working skills, you could always make one out of pine. it's an easy wood to work with, light, and its cheap, plus with the scrap, you can make a few pair of geta. (i know bleach shinigami dont wear geta, they has waraji and is gonna be a pain to find them in my size)

Yeah. I was looking at the list, and I felt lonely. No one else going as Sado. Teardrops. I've got the hair, long and shaggy, but it's pretty long now since I've been growing it since April last year. Haha.

bring in pictures of Sado when you go to get your hair done - When i went and got my hair cut like Ulquiorra (which i did for almost mainly for cosplay reasons XD i did want my hair short though so it worked out), i brought in pictures of Ulquiorra from different angles so my hair stylist knew what i was aiming for.

it's probable that due to current budget outlooks, the pinata may just be a normal one painted black with a white "mask" on it.

my job is in limbo and i has bills.

Runewitt: are you planning on attending any other gatherings/events before Fanime?
Maybe some of us that are at these things that will be part of the Bleach pinata fun could contribute to the cause early?

Yukari: I loved the trash joke! That's awesome. I see a future photo opportunity here....
:D

As for sushi, sounds great! Something to consider for those of us that would have cars, to maybe organize a group lunch run, although I'm not familiar at all with San Jose for driving.
But would it scare the people in Japantown if Bleach cosplayers went there?

no other events, other than my brother's wedding i'm helping to fund, as well as cellphone, rent help, and paying off laptop and some construction stuff we bought. i'll know by the end of the month for sure, but like i said before i dont want people to contribute funds to something that may or may not happen.

@kimu - yay someone got my Ulquiorra/trash joke! I am totally down for a photo op with Ulquiorra being all "pick up your trash...and recycle" or something like that XD (cause we all know secretly Ulquiorra is such an environmentalist lol)

@Runewitt - hey theres no pressure or anything to get the pinata. if you can't do it, thats totally fine, so no need to stress about it ^^

Post by: kimu on January 18, 2008, 07:39:20 AM
Too bad we don't have someone that could just make a pinata in the group, rather than having to pay to get one made, then we could just contribute some cost of supplies and candy to that person.

Sometimes I wish I had access to a garage where I could attempt some of these truly messy projects, instead of a 1-bedroom apartment where that would be a bad bad thing.
It seems to me a hollow pinata of the sort we'd want might not be that hard to make?
hmm.....

And the trash in the park joke...yes! And there could be some fun photo with other characters that were in that scene.... (just in case of spoilers, won't go into the details).

Nope.  I'm sure other cosplayers visit Japantown during Fanime.  And we're Bleach :3

ROTFL on the soul burial idea on other cosplayers!  (the imagery I had was great fun) Of course, the hollows-side wouldn't be as nice, would they?
And awesome on the fact Bleach cosplayers could shop in Japantown for lunch. :D
The ideas with this group are great fun. It gives me something to look forward to.

same here - the idea of going to japantown to grab some food to bring back to the park sounds like fun. im starting to lean more and more towards doing that instead of getting something close by (and sushi + japanese snacks sounds tasty XD).

How far away is Japan town from the park? I've had friends that went there a year or two ago, but I've never thought of going there myself. If some people do decide to go, will the people in Japan town look at some of us...if were in our cosplay costumes. XD I'd feel so embaressed.o^_^o

Thanks Yukari <3!

Japantown is maybe a little less than a mile from the con I think (I live very close to both :d). It's not very big, but there's a very good sushi place called Sushi-maru... You may have to split up though because it isn't a large restaurant ;_;.

hahah, I was actually planning on stopping by at japantown right after fanime (or at least the gathering) because the apartments there are ADORABLE (and perfect for a photoshoot!).

japantown isn't that far, I think? the convention center is a few minutes away, from what I remember.

Yes! Made an account just for this! This will be my third year at Fanime, but my first time ever cosplaying Bleach, and ALSO first gathering ever. xD

Could you please add me to the list? I'm going to be Wonderwice! =] I should have the cosplay done by Fanime, since I've already started. Please and thank you!

The gathering sounds so fun, I can't wait. x3

EDIT: Also, I've got a question about part of the arrancar's outfit. The hakama they wear... it is a hakama, right? And usually those resemble like, long pleated skirts...? Or are they sometimes just really big pants? I honestly can't tell if they wear long skirts or pants, and I kinda need to know which to make... D= I feel stupid for asking this, but I figure this might be the best place for answers.

They're pants. they're just baggy and pleated, like the shinigami wear. think MC Hammer with a sword.

probably should have asked this before but Weapon Policy: at con can i jus have my zanpukto stashed in my sash? it's wooden, but i dont have any sort of sheath for it.

from what i experienced last year, they might just zip tie it to your sash (really inconvenient it was, made sitting really uncomfortable. I was Byakuya and though i had my katana zip tied into the sheath already, they wanted it tied to my belt DX). i'd email the person in charge of cosplay/weapons policy and ask them.

@fanime_love - its a given that we're going to get stares if we're in cosplay in a setting away from the con site. but its fun to go to places like that in groups XD

@iNSOMNiAC - yay a Wonderweiss cosplayer! one of my friends is coming as Wonderweiss too (he's one of my favorite arrancar, he's so weird xD). i'll add you to the list ^^

@Yukari Kaiba - Thanks so much! Yeah, Wonderwice(weiss? Which way is correct? xD I've seen it spelled both ways...) is my favorite arrancar for sure, and it gives me an excuse to act retarded. <3

Update on the Hinamori cosplay: there are slight chances I might not be able to finish it (unfortunately, my sights are set for Tobiume or nothing at all), so I might be cosplaying as Rukia (artbook version).

Does anyone have a better scan of All Color But The Black (esp. the page w/ Rukia & the traditional chinese dress)? The ones I have are quite blurry.

i thought i said i'd be your guys' Matt for your DN group, didnt i? well im being your group's Matt (already started looking up wigs and i found a site to buy my goggles from XD. still trying to figure out how ill do the pants though.and i needs me a DS! XD)

Awesome! I'll probably do Hinamori for one of the days (just need pants and a few minor things...), Sunday likely. Why wear the same thing all day xP. One DN cosplay and one Bleach cosplay for each day!

EDIT: Fringy black yarn - I think I might have some at home that I knit with. You could probably just paste in rows across the pants.

Would be fun to see; I have it easier, just put on eyeliner and look disheveled xP. Think I'll do normal Hinamori this year if I cosplay her.

The yarn's called "eyelash yarn", about cost me about $3 for the amount to make a normal sized scarf.

Actually, I think you're right. Though a lot of the cosplays of Matt seem to just use normal jeans.

if it comes down to it ill just wear regular jeans, though im going to try modifying some jeans first (want to be accurate and all)

I've got a couple of screenshots I took from the anime, I could send them your way if you need... They're not the best shots, but they're what I'm using as references... D=

Technically speaking, his jacket doesn't make sense... xD So I'm improvising on some of it.

That's something I'm also worrying about; keeping my cosplay clean... ^ ^;; I've never had to wear one that was completely white before. I guess I'm gonna have to shy away from any foods that are too messy.

I go to school(Notre Dame) pretty close to Japantown.If you guys want something to eat on the go or something small, I suggest going to Nijiya. The only other eating places there are sit-down restaurants, where take-out is a long wait, or a manju (mochi) shop. Recently, they opened a Shabu-Shabu restaurant but it's kinda small to seat a large amount of people.
Now that I think of it, if a majority of people who are at Fanime go to JT, there'd be no place to eat.
Even closer to the convention center is a Vietnamese place Dakao. Vietnamese sandwiches for only $2.00? Come on. That's a deal.

I'd marry a Vietnamese gal just for the food. Really. Haha. I love Pho and ze' sandwiches. But I love food in general anyways. Therefore, I'd marry anyone who can cook.

People should bring camcorders and record things, and then someone put it all together to make a music video...

Dude. We should make like a skit and then have people record it then someone make a music video out of it, and by skit, I mean scenes from Bleach, do it without lines and just someone film it. Or just random scenes, and make a video out of it.

Ooo ooo how about we gather as much Bleach art we could find, and then have people pose then, and then someone make a music video/slideshow.

lol. I just like watching music videos. XD

good thank you I needed to know that and tell him to becareful this year because Hueco Mundo Tousen's coming after him...unless he has the sword (-_-;). Hopefully it's the idols sword that way I can upshow him with the true sword(if it's shown at lest a month before Fanime).........okay if your looking at that statment wonder "WTF" Tousen officially has two zanpakuto the one he took from his idols grave and his personal one, which he hasn't pulled out yet and hoping he'll pwn Kenpachi with after Nnori is slaughtered like betrayer's should be

Oh mah gads!! I completely didn't even think about the fact that I'd be wearing basically all white. Recipe for disaster?!?! Might as well go eat curry in it! The arrancar challenge X3!  Hmmmm for sushi places in Japantown there's Sushimaru, and Sushiboat both of which are moderately priced and tasty (in my opinion XD).

For those of you who are looking to shabu-shabu...their small plate of meat which costs $12ish consists of literally nine extremely thin (in the style of shabu-shabu) pieces of meat. Sort of a rip off if you ask me :(.

Okay I'm done being food-critic for now LOL.

Or if the stain remover sticks have to come out for use--the making of a possible Bleach commercial.....

just use a clear strap and place it on your back if you can't find it. Something see-though like a plastic-clear strap.

it's no problem.. I was just thinking about different types of shirts that don't have shoulders. In order to hand them in your cloest, they sometimes have clear-plastc-strips attached to them. That way your clothes don't fall down from the hanger or on you while your wearing them. Some bras have them too.

Yeah, I took a bunch of screenshots of Wonderwice and alas, no strap, just a floating sword magically attached to his back. And, I have  been thinking about going to the cosplay.com forums lately, so this would be a good reason to.

I'm INCREDIBLY excited; I just need to finish my cosplays first! >< Gosh, its coming up SO fast. I'm also worried, that I might not have gotten the right type of fabric for my arrancar outfit... I'm not an expert at this in the least; on the contrary, I'm quite a newbie when it comes to sewing and the like, so I'm a bit worried. x_x I'm having help with it, but choosing the fabric is all up to me. And I don't have enough money to go out and buy a different kind... Ah, but now I'm ranting. I'm sorry! >n<

a good fabric to use in general for both the shinigami and arrancar uniforms is twill, or something similar (a light cotton for the white under kimono for the shinigami and the black lining for the arrancar works well also).

Hmmm... Well, I can't look at my fabric now to check, because its all at my grandmother's house... But at the fabric store, it didn't even say what type of fabric it was. o_O
But, thank you for helping out. =]
Make sure you measure multiple times and also. If the black faberic is thick but still light you should be fine.

O____O It's you! I've heard so much about your awesome Grimmjow cosplay from Yukari! rofl

So... um.... Yeah.... That's really all I had to say about your post XD

Anywhos.... Question for any Wonderweiss cosplayer: His jacket, oh how I'm starting to hate it... Does it cut off at his waist (in both the front and the back) and split into two flaps (one on each side of his hips), or is the arch only in the front. I'm using ch. 230, pg 13, and ch. 233, pg. 8 and 15 as reference but I'm kind of iffy due to the way he's standing/kneeling.

@iNSOMNiACI: His sword looks like it hangs more on his left than his right (ch. 230, pg 13; ch. 233, pg 9), but the manga shows no straps for it either.

Well, the anime's outfit for Wonderweiss arches only in the front, while the side and the back are both long. I have screenshots to prove that, but I'm not so sure if its the same in the manga, I'll have to skim over it again.
Don't worry, I'm also hating his outfit as well. It doesn't appear to make any sense... xD

And thank you for the help with the sword; its not a necessity for me, but I'd really love to make it if I can! ...At least the sheath for it...

Its Shunsui's Shikai, i did it on MS Paint with my mouse so dont flame me too hard D:

Tell me what you think because I have to help my friend make em so i needa kinda get the concept of drawing it..


Also tell me how you think Nejibana looks :3

Those look awesome! You're good at MS Paint... I can't do ANYTHING on that program. xD Especially with a laptop mouse.


But anyways, I was wondering... Does anybody here have any patterns for the hakama? I found one, but its not exactly the arrancar hakama, but a more traditional one that isn't quite the same.
But, what I'm really looking for is a pattern for Wonderwice's jacket... I'm working on the cosplay with my grandma, but she is really nervous about cutting into the fabric without a pattern and accidentally ruining it... So we'd both feel better if we were working with a pattern. Does anybody know where I can find one? =<
Title: Re: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: Yukari Kaiba on February 27, 2008, 06:14:00 PM
heres the pattern i bought for my hakama: http://www.folkwear.com/asian.html
all you need to do to make it fit the Arrancar version is to make the front of the hakama look exactly like the back (basically there will be a backboard in the front and the back). as far as Wonderwice's jacket, best bet is to either look around for a jacket pattern that is as close as possible to resembling his jacket and alter it as needed, and/or go buy some muslin (which is very cheap so you can get lots of it) and come up with a pattern. hope the advice is helpful, and good luck with your costume ^^

Title: Re: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: kimu on February 27, 2008, 07:23:32 PM
Helpful tip!
Get muslin!
Nice, cheap, wonderful muslin.
Make your costumes the first time out of the muslin!
That way you have no worries about wrecking and wasting your good fabric.
You get to 'practice' putting the costume together, and figuring out if you need to customize anything.
When you're done, if the thing didn't need any changes, then go back and do it again with the original pattern pieces. Now you can sew with complete confidence.
If you needed to make changes, you can take out the seams and use the muslin pieces as a new pattern piece.

Good luck and I wish you success with your Bleach costumes!

And I look forward to seeing Shunsui's shikai swords, too!

Kanzake: If you've got a week's time to put into it, (or of course, parts of a week's time--have to eat and sleep and goof off, too, right?), then I'm betting it will come out okay!!

As for directing a huuuuuge Bleach group?
Traffic cones could get kind of heavy to hold up.... ;p
If you can't get some kind of megaphone....
Maybe some kind of whistle to get everyone's attention?
A tall banner or some kind of sign to help identify your spot in the crowd so everyone knows where to direct their attention?
Someone from the military who's got the practiced Loud Attention Everyone Voice to help transmit orders for setting up shots?
A few second-in-commands to help you that are scattered around, and know your plan ahead of time to help transmit it to the people farther away from you? Maybe a couple walkie talkies with them to then spread your directions? That way it might be faster getting everyone in and out of the groupings and you won't have to rely on the "telephone" game of people passing the word along.

Harbor Freight in Fremont might have cheap megaphones.  My Dad gets their ads in the mail.  I keep the megaphone thought at the back of my head.  I saw one on eBay for $10, but with $20 shipping :(

@ININ - hmm maybe ill look into that place you mentioned, see what they have (i dont want to have to spend a lot of money on it DX needs the monies to fund the cosplays xD).

@Kanzake - hold on to that walkie talkie - if i need second in commands i might recruit you XD

@kimu - i have these small plastic cones my brother and i use to set up courses when we go take out our go-carts, i was thinking maybe i could use one of those (definitely lighter than traffic cones). and im definitely considering the second-in commands - last year i did have some one help me out when my voice started to go XD lol

Hmmm... Sorry I keep asking questions, and I'm debating whether I should ask them in the "Cosplay Sewing And Construction Support" thread, but since I've already been getting some good responses here, I'll just ask...

What do all of you make your hollow masks out of? There's a couple options that I can go with, but I was just wondering if maybe there's something that's better. Since I'm cosplaying Wonderwice, and he has a tiara-like hollow mask, I was thinking of gluing a beret-hair thingy on it so it would stay on... But, I'm open to any suggestions. I'm very nervous about getting this cosplay right, since its something I'm so enthusiastic about, and I'm a perfectionist so its gonna bother me otherwise. x_x

i can help out yet again XD
a lot of Arrancar cosplayers swear by using Crayloa Model Magic for the hollow pieces (my Ulquiorra helm is made out of the same stuff). its a air dry clay that becomes really light when its dry and you can easily glue on a hair clip to keep it on your hair or wig. I've seen other people use paper clay and plaster, but it all really depends on the size of the hollow piece. for Wonderwice, you can easily use the model magic.

I know this maybe a little of topic for fanime or even Bleach, but I'm dying to ask. Is their anyone from this thread planning to go to the Sakura Festivle in San Francisco. I just thought it would be cool running into some of you. I wanna see the parade. I hear they have a cosplay contest early in the morning too.

 I can't belive I was born in San Fran and raised in the Bay Area and never noticed any of these things. I must be a total space-monkey half the times.  :D

I'm definitely going to take your advice. I am sure Wonderwice's hollow piece is probably one of the easiest, so yeah, I'll probably go with the Crayola Model Magic stuff you said. Thank you so much! ;__;

I entered the contest yesterday, and they were up to 47 entries now, including me.
I'm hoping to get to meet up with some of you, although I won't be cosplaying from Bleach for the contest or parade.

I will probably be cosplaying as Ukitake at the Treasure Island picnic, however.

no problem ^^

@fanime_lo-ve - like Kimu i also entered the cosplay contest for the Cherry Blossom Festival ^^ remember the parade is on the sunday of the last weekend of the festival (they also hold the contest that day). i highly recommend signing up to walk in the parade its a ton of fun - i met the people im going to AX with this year last year at the festival cause we were all in Bleach cosplay and just kinda stuck together for the parade XD (we totally outnumbered the Naruto people too lol). I'm planning on entering my BANKAI Renji ^^
for the Treasure Island picnic though im considered Byakuya (cause i havent worn it in such a long time, or maybe my StreetFighter cosplay if its finished enough to wear).

I'm cosplaying as Syaoran for the Cherry Blossom Fesitval.  Two years ago, a sword shop had a sale on swords.  I need a sword for my Syaoran.  Sorry, fellow Bleachers   :(

Yes, sign up to walk the parade at Japan Video in Japantown.  After the parade, you get a goodie bag.

I have a picture of last year's Bleach gathering in front of City Hall.  I upload as soon as I can.

@kimu: I really hope I will be able to meet you, even though you probably won't notice me waving my arms around like a made person. = ) I want this to be a good experience, so I plan to take many photos. I might post them online; who knows, I may catch. ((gotta catch'em all))


@Yukari Kaiba: If you go as Renji I'll probably be able to notice you from the crowd right away. This will be my first time watching the Cherry Blosom parade in SF. I'm really excited, because my Dad is supposed to be taking me. ( if he doesn't stand me up) The parade is also one week before my birthday, so I really plan on seeing this through. Going to the parade and creating good memories with my Dad and my friend will be the greatest thing for me to cherish. So wish me luck, I hope everything falls into plan.  :-\

The pick up was located on the left side of the stage.  If you see cosplayers with a bag, ask them where the pick up is.

Try to stay after the parade.  My friends are planning to eat dinner at my cousin's restaurant in Pinole.  It's Happy Sashimi on Pinole Valley Road.  Everyone here are welcomed to attend.

I find time to upload the Bleach group shot pics after work :)

Yeah! Sounds like a fun place, with the name happy in it.
I think April 20 will be a great day! And a fun prelude to Fanime.
(My Cherry Blossom costume will be Sairin from Twelve Kingdoms. Something for filling out the fun for  a 'lovely costume that's not a crossplay and obscure character from less known/cosplayed series'.)

I promise to cheer on fellow Bleachers at the contest and parade, or Bleachers that won't be in Bleach costumes for the day, and now I'll know what costumes to look for.

I'm curious about the Crayola model magic, when it finishes drying, how breakable is it? Nice and sturdy or handle with a little care?
Title: Re: Bleach Gathering 2008! (see 1st post for current list)
Post by: Yukari Kaiba on March 04, 2008, 10:28:41 PM
@Kimu - its pretty durable once its dried, but it should still be handled with a little care. a small crack has appeared on my Ulquiorra helm which is made out of the stuff, but its on the horn at the very tip, which makes sense since the clay is thinner there. but otherwise its pretty durable. a lot of people like to put a layer of gesso over it to harden it and give it a little more strength and durability.

While my Ukitake cosplay was done last July, I am redoing the shikai sword hilts to make them better. And also making the unreleased zanpakuto, too.

(It's my two new costumes I'm working on time for Cherry Blossom and Fanime. ;p)

Thanks for the info on the Crayola Model Magic, Yukari. It's good to know reviews on various products from everyone. With some of the crazy things we have to make, after all....

i got some most awesome news everyone!

so it looks like the Bleach! Cosplay Chess Game is a go! now before everyone starts asking if they can be this piece or whatnot, the signups for the Cosplay Chess will not be in this forum - they're going to be over in the Fanime subforum at Cosplay.com.The sign-up thread hasn't even been started yet, and im not actually the one who will be in charge of it (the organizers of the game will be), so don't post here telling me what piece you want to be. I highly recommend getting a Cosplay.com account if you don't have one and are interested in the game so you can keep a watch on the thread over on the boards over there.

I wanted to see the cosplay chess for Bleach, but I've got a Trinity Blood gathering that got moved up to 3 pm--and I know I'm not the only Bleacher making that change, or others.

I'm hoping that the chess will be at a time I can at least see part of it. The Shinigami are not just going to let the Arrancar win! Some of us should be watching to be sure Aizen doesn't cheat.

@fanime_love - yeah that would be cool to see, if we could have Aizen VS Yamamoto. XD though i also think it'd be kinda funny to see Ichigo and Ishida's dads go up against each other XD
edit: or even better, get some people to cosplay as Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy and have them play the game XD it'd be like giant-size Wizard's Chess! (cept we're shinigami and arrancar XD) lolz

Hmm I think I might join in, though I might just bring my own lunch just to save money  :P I'm not going as any particular character but as some random background shinigami, though my sister still needs to come down and take measurements for the costume.

Shinigami v Arrancar--months before Fanime--the action starts here!!!
 :D

I hope the Shiba halter top problem is solved, I think we're going to need someone like her to help balance stuff out.

@Kanzake: get those 5 charms made!!! You need to come with finished shikai, too! Especially with the Arrancar coming to town.

@ Yukari Kaiba: I hod did that picnic go on Treasure Island???? Did everyone have fun?   

the picnic had to be postponed - not due to the weather, but because apparently the park dept had misplaced the rsvp to reserve the spot for the picnic or something along those lines, so its being moved to the summertime, around two weeks prior to AX. some people went and gathering in japantown, but i didnt go (didn't feel like being in the city during crummy weather).

its ok that we don't do the pinata - we'd probably be cramming way too much in before the gathering (lunch, chess, and frisbee all before photos, though the exact time of the chess game hasn't been confirmed yet).so no need to stress about it ^^

you could just always buy hakama if you wanted to if you still would like to do pleats. or you could just iron in pleats - thats what i did with my first pair of hakama (before i had a pattern for them), and it looked pretty decent ^^

I'm still very confused as to how this whole thing works. :-\ I would like join your group Saturday so can you tell me what I should do? Like what time I should get there, what does a gathering do?, ect. You can post here or email it to me. I'm very excited about Fanime.  :D I just need some help on where to start. Thank you so much!

Well first Yukari will add you to the list. Just show up to the gathering :) It should say the time and date for our gathering on the first page.
When: Saturday
Where: The Fountains
Time: 1:00

Bleach!Frisbee is at 12:30, same location as the gathering

There are some other events youd have to sift through the thread about. Maybe Yukari will put up all the event times and stuff on the first page? :P

Welcome to the group :3

Also, you meet people and get your picture taken multiple times.  We take pictures by groups such as by squads, captains and vice captains, Arrancars, the Kurosaki family, and lots of random group shots.  It's like an outdoor party ^__^

Yukari Kaiba organizes the list of who's cosplaying who and calls out the photo group shots.  Many thanks to Yukari.  Yay!

On the safe side, make sure you drink water because the weather is warm =)

@chibibuie - welcome to the thread! =D if you love Bleach, cosplaying, and love cosplaying Bleach, you'll fit right in with the crowd that will be at the gathering (coming to the thread is a good start to see how things are going to work out). Kanzake and ININ basically summed up how the gathering is going to work, so as long as you can understand that you should be fine.
regarding some of the events Kanazke mentioned, we're doing a little more before the actual gathering starts (ie the taking of photos). at around 11, we're meeting up at the park across the street to have lunch and possibly a Bleach!Cosplay Chess game (time for that hasn't been determined yet), and at 12:30 (half an hour before the gathering starts) we're playing Bleach!Frisbee. then at 1 we start with generic group photos at the fountains, and then migrate over to the park for more specific groups, scene reenactments, and of course fan requests/service XD (i highly recommend going to the park portion of the gathering, for much hilarity ensues there XD). ill be calling out the groups, who is included in said groups, etc. actually, ill be posting sometime soon the possible group ideas to have you guys OK and/or add to. and as long as you often check the thread, you should be fine ^^.

we'll see you at the gathering! SPIRITS ARE ALWAYS WITH YOU!! 8D lol XD

Hi
This will be my first time at fanime and cosplaying. Can I be added as Rukia (school version). I wanted to keep it simple since this is my first time and don't have much time or resources. Not sure if I can drag my boyfriend to the gathering so I hope can meet some friendly people there. I'd be really interested to see if anyone shows up as some of the less-featured shinigami like Nemu or Kira.

ATTENTION ARRANCAR COSPLAYERS
ok so im sure most of you have heard about the BLEACH!Cosplay Chess game thats going to be happening the same day as the gathering. The Black team aka Shinigami basically have a complete roster. The White team/Arrancar don't have many signed up D: so if you're going to be cosplaying as an Espada, an Arrancar, or Hueco Mundo Orihime/Tousen/Gin, please consider signing up. i was told that if we don't get enough Arrancar, regular human characters and Quincy will be put in to fill the gaps. so join me in taking down the Shinigami in an epic game of Cosplay Chess! *is playing on the Arrancar side*

While I've already signed up I want to take this chance and repeat that I don't really care what side I'm on (though I do have piece preferences though if I have to I'll be a pawn), I guess I could be a rogue shinigami ;) Oh and I've noticed that you haven't updated the roster on the front page of it, you might want to do that.

I'm not in charge of the Bleach Cosplay Chess game or am the one organizing it (doragon and kuroneko are), I am just organizing the gathering, so its not my job to update the chess team roster (the attendance list on the first page for the gathering is currently up to date, if thats the one you're referring to). as far as pieces go, I'm sure you've been told that the major pieces are reserved for Captains and Espada, so im not exactly sure where your OC is going to fit in, thats something you'd have to ask doragon and neko.

@SweetNiar - bah The Arrancarmy will still take down the Shinigami, even if it happens that we would be fewer in numbers. FOR THE GLORY OF AIZEN-SAMA!! >D lol

Well I TOTALLY want to be a Bleach Character.

I was GOING to be Szayel in release form but I kind of doubt I can pull that together in time,
Plus I hate wearing wings. I know its kind of stupid but I don't have any idea who I am going to be and have nothing worked on yet. But thats just me, I am always last minute down to the wire with my costumes, yet they always turn out pretty good I guess. Yeah I am just rambling now xD

well you could always do regular Szayel or Past Szayel (though released form would no doubt be cool to see). as soon as you know who you're going as let me know and i can add you to the list ^^.

zomg CBF is in two weeks, still have so much work to do DX i got the fur for the bankai shrug and Zabimaru yesterday (Zabimaru's fur looks like Elmo fur XD thats all the red fur JoAnns had though, so i had to take it). at least its soft though lol

Yeah it has a weird handle, its got blue balls on it.
I used clay to make the balls on it so it atleast looks the part.
Now I need to bleach my wig.

So you can add me as Szayel, although someone might need to remind me about it or I wander off and miss things. But I don't need to worry about that, I'll remember to write it on something so that doesn't happen.

So, no Wonderweiss for me. I did no work on it during Spring Break, and my class schedule is going to prevent me from working on it during during the quarter. Still planning on cosplaying, just something that would take less work. Right now my plan is Akon (Division 12) and, if all else fails, Hinamori.

Got the wig for Unohana cosplay. Just need to get it de-tangled. ^^

I'm getting the costume made from them: http://myworld.ebay.com/come-on-cosplay

Had some communication problems with the seller. I should had gone to QQCosplay.com AFTER I send in the money, since they respond a lot quicker.

so I'll give you guys an update to see if I have the cosplay done or not in May. :(

Seems to me those fans without costumes joining our fun might even be able to participate in some possible fun pics at the park?
They could be fans of Don Kanoji, watching his show.
They could be Arrancar victims? Or the semi-unaware bystanders seen in a number of episodes.
If they could even just come with a (plastic) chain pinned to their shirt, they could be a ghost.
Just some thoughts so everyone could be in on the fun.

I need peoples opinion on this. For my soul reaper outfit (it's my own character) I'm not sure if I should bring my wazitashi along as well or just attach a really cool key chain I have to my katana. I've also realized I can make paper shurikins which would be a maroon (blood?) red. For my character I'm trying to stick to a shikai form rather than bankai due more or less limited resources and time, plus the people at the bleach chess thread suggested not to do uber powerful which I'm inclined to agree. Depending on what people say I'll make a name for my zanpakuto myself.

I would say just bring your wazitashi and your katana unmodified - people might think you're doing some kind of Bleach/KH crossover with the keychain being attached to it. I think you should also leave out the shurikins. ultimately it comes down to what you want to do.

I'm pretty sure at least some of Okage-Sama De~ will be debuting their Bleach costumes this year, and I don't have to do much for mine since I have a wig and am borrowing the outfit from a friend, so I guess...sure, count me in. Put me down for Nanao. There's another person on the board, Jangular...he's the one that convinced me to be Nanao, so he'll probably be going, too, so I think it's pretty safe bet to put him down for Shunsui. I'll post again if something comes up for either of us.

Hmm now I see your point, unless I got something like a chainmail sleeve for my left arm it probably would be odd. But with the katana and the wazitashi should I have them on the same side or mix it up? People might get confused if there on the same side.

Hey you guys!

I went to the Sakura Festivle, and had the time of my life. I haven't been there since I was really young and it was great going through the whole experience all over again. I met a lot of people that are planning to go to Fanime, so I decided to ppost a couple of the pictures I took while I was there. Next year, my friends and I are going back, but we plan on cosplaying second time around. =3 ( I didn't cosplay this time, cause I was going with my parents. We were celebrating my birthday this weekend, cause my Dad isn't going to be in town for my 21st birthday. T^T; Anywho, I still had a lot a fun!)

since i knew it was too late to commission a sword for my cosplay, I had someone make a parasol with the captains print all along the outside and the squad for symbol in the middle.  And I got it in the mail today and it looks great!! Yay!! :D

@ fanime_lo-ve~~Beautiful pictures! They look so familiar. XP

The Cherry Blossom Festival was AWESOME! It was crowded, it was loud, it smelled of incredible food, the cosplayers were amazing, the parade was a lot of fun, and I cannot wait to go back next year.

But first things first...Fanime 2008 is only 32 days away! >.<

Say... whats the current list of events (with times) if you include the chess game?

Current schedule is as follows:
10:00 - BLEACH!Cosplay Chess
11:00 - BLEACH!Lunch Meet-Up (during chess game)
12:30 - BLEACH!Frisbee
1:00 - Gathering


Yukari, how about we go into more detail the Saturday Bleach events including locations and descriptions?  For example, the 12:30 BLEACH!Frisbee event we meet in front of the fountains and throw a frisbee while we wait for all the Bleach cosplayers.  BTW, who's bringing the frisbee?  :)

good idea. ill go post the schedule on the first page with the attendance list. ill do descriptions here ^^
ok for those who aren't sure what exactly is going on with the Bleach gathering (more like Bleach Day now XD), heres how its going down on saturday:
10:00 - BLEACH! Cosplay Chess - this will be taking place in the park across the street. basically a life size game of chess with cosplayers as the chess pieces.
11:00 - BLEACH! Lunch Meet-Up - location is the same as the chess game. EVERYONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN FOOD. if you have stuff to share, thats great, but please don't come without anything and expect people to feed you.
12:30 - BLEACH!Frisbee - as soon as the chess game is over or we finish eating (what ever comes first), we are migrating back over to the fountains to play frisbee for about half an hour. ill provide the frisbee (as i have a white Frisbee that ill be decking out all Bleach like :3).
1:00 - Gathering - meeting place is by the fountains, so most of you im guessing will already be there since we will have been playing frisbee.at the fountains we will be taking generic group shots (ill post the list soon). When those groups are done, we will migrate over to the park one more time to take more specific group photos, scene reenactments, fan requests/service XD etc.

phew ok i think i covered just about everything :D

yes, time is flying by! And looking at the events reminds me...
Must be ready and get candy!
There will be Shiro-chans in need of treats! (And you were already warned at CBF ININ, prepare yourself! mwahaha!)
And if Zabimaru is nice, he can have something, too.

@kimu - haha XD unfortunately Zabimaru isn't coming to the gathering (he's too big for me to be able to direct the gathering efficiently XD). but he will be making an appearance at the Shonen Jump Gathering (have to rep Bleach!) and i figured my bankai would be good there. do feel free to come up and pet him if you see it on sunday :)

@clawmaster - haha im sure someone will be willing to do it.hell i could, since ill be Ulquiorra and i have a friend who's doing HM Orihime.

@userpay - you just had to what?highlight the words 'fan service'? haha it happened last year XD
won't say who did it though >.>.....

And then it hit me. "Omgosh! I can fully participate in all of this this year!!!"  :D

Yes, I know about Zabimaru on Sunday, but I'll be sure to save some candy.  ;) I'm quite sure our Bleach gathering will be happy to eat the candy after we've had the photo ops with Hitsugaya cosplayers.
I'll be cosplaying as Kenshin for SJ Gathering, so it won't be as funny as Ukitake giving candy to Zabimaru.

Was that the thing where someone was cosplaying as yoruichi and her pins that were securing her top kept poping off? I heard about that in another thread I think from the person it happened to.

Yukari, thank you very much for the schedule :D  I like to mention the park name is Plaza De Cesar Chavez http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v359/Trumby/park.jpg (link from Trumby).  I highly suggest we gather in a big open area.  I think about bringing games such as Fluxx and Liar’s Dice for lunch because I don’t want to carry a lot of stuff throughout the gathering.

Kimu, if you can pull a Santa-san out of your sleeves, it’s going to be a top highlight at the gathering ^__^

Everyone else, please watch the spoilers, please :)  I’m behind in the episodes.

@kimu - lol only a proper Bleach Frisbee will do! ill post pictures of it once i've finished customizing it.

@ININ - i figured posting a schedule would be a good idea, seeing as how we have a bunch of events we're doing this year XD

I'm a bit late, but Cherry Blossom Festival was much better than I could have ever dreamed of. 2.2 I missed out meeting people who were going to the bleach gathering, because I was shocked at how many random people and things I got to see.

I cannot wait, for Fanime. One question is the people list from cosplay.com and the list here two seperate lists or the same one in different stages of update?

@californiacos - im in charge of both the cosplay.com list and the list here ^^ they are seperate lists, as not everyone has an account on both sites. granted they are people who go and rsvp on both sites, but for the most part each list is mostly made up of people who frequent just that one particular site.

@White Rose Assassin - I'll add you and your group to the list ^^

@kimu, make sure there’s at least one pocky :3  I can help with the candy.  The action shot is worth it.

@SweetNiar, the parasol rocks.  Need a 10th squad.

@Yukari, I bring garbage bags to the lunch =) We are not messy :]  And speaking of garbage bags, I hope a Matsumoto comes to lunch for an action shot from the following:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tfhimIxQHc

@Trumby, Fluxx rocks.  Takes one minutes to learn for those interested in playing.

RE: Bleach.com:
We may be able to keep that idea going about filming a (fake) advertisement for bleach with all the white outfits and a picnic.
 ;)

As for the pocky! My my, Shiro-chan is quite demanding. First you want the Santa-san and now pocky, too! Well, I simply must keep our 10th squad captain happy!!! Is there a particular flavor of preference? Probably should not be the "Men's Pocky". LOL! ;b

As for the parasol, that is awesome!
I was planning a fan with the 13th symbol on it. But a parasol far outdoes my little fan! (I have the stuff to do the fan, just haven't done it yet. Getting that costume done for CBF was higher priority.)

Along with the frisbee (or if you want to avoid that trademark stuff--flying disc), we're certainly filling in holes where the merchandise is lacking.

 Im going as young Byakuya. He was only in one manga chapter, and it's such a generic costume, no one will recognize me but go ahead and add me to the list anyway. I have no other plans thus far,

Thanks!

   ...but I  feel a bit 'out of place'.
    I always go as Bankai Renji and my friend as Byakuya. It's pretty much what were known for at cons.

Now Im not going as Renji at all. My friend will have no one to pick on and the fan girls wont love us.

 I think I've actually died a little inside.

...Maybe yelling at Yoruichi will make me feel better. XD

hey i know exactly what you mean - Renji has kinda become my signature cosplay (and character from Bleach i most known for as too. I also just finished doing the Bankai version), and this is the first time i won't be Renji. its going to be weird not being in the Lieutenant photo group for once lol. but if you're going to be hanging around Sunday, theres a Shonen Jump gathering and you could wear Renji to that (thats where ill be bring out Bankai Renji & Hihio Zabimaru).

Yea! Thats totally how it is!

 I cant go as Renji. I hate wigs so I just dyed my hair black.
On the other hand, I WONT have to carry Hihio Zabimaru around. Hes such a pain in the ass.
Pro tip: Don't let him push you around god knows hell try. XD

Oi, do we have to sign up early for the Chess Game?
 Im a regular at Cosplay Chess for both kumori and Sakuracon. It's the most fun event I have been to so I really want to get in on it.
Of coarse, I have no idea what Ill do.  All I have is a stick and a bad temper!

haha yeah my Hihio is kinda a pain to carry too. people seem to be drawn to the fur though, when i debuted it two weeks ago people kept coming up to me asking if they could pet him XD

oh perfect timing that you brought up the Chess Game. i have a memo from Kuroneko (one of the organizers for the Bleach!Chess):
All right... well personally, I'm starting to get kinda worried. There's only three weeks left and we barely have half the ranks filled for the Arrancar side. Shinigami side is all right, but just barely since we don't even really have a backup list. We can't really have a game without full teams.

So anyone, if you have friends with non-shinigami costumes - be it arrancar or human or quincy or whatever - can you see if maybe they'd be interested in joining the game? If we can't get enough people then the game will have to be canceled, and that will be sad sad times.


WE NEED MORE ARRANCAR/HUMAN/QUINCY PLAYERS FOR THE WHITE SIDE. i'd hate to see the game canceled since i know we're all really looking forward to it.

@Yuu - the Shinigami side is filled, though i think you can sign up as a back up, or since you're doing Young Byakuya you might be able to get away with being on the Arrancar/White side. if you go to cosplay.com, in the Fanime subforum, theres a thread for the game and you can ask either Doragon or Kuroneko where you can be placed.

Hey! Theres a use for that ridiculous stick ( aka crappy little boken) to be useful. If Hihio acts up I will beat him with my stick saying " NO Zabimaru that's a bad Zabimaru! That's Renjis Taiyaki!" ....Please ignore the time paradox.

I know quite a few people who are going as arrancarr, unfortunatly they're all going to AX.

Maybe you'll have to switch up the teams a bit. If your short by that many people, it could come down to that, or no game at all.

its not my call to cancel the game or not. the organizers want a full roster which requires signing up before hand, and if they don't get the Arrancar side filled up they may cancel it.

I don't mean to come in here and tell everyone how do they're job, but it's been my experience that this just isn't going to happen.

Every game Iv been to we have filled places a good two months before the game, and STILL had no shows. In the end, it didnt matter because so many people NOT on the forum heard about and showed up last-minute. We ended up with TOO many.

'cause then in some cases, we could have a back up list [which we also don't have] or something or spaces can be filled from those who just show up.

oh theres going to be AT LEAST 100+ people - remember i have a list running on cosplay.com, and though there are some people here who have also replied over there, majority of the people on the cosplay.com list only frequent cosplay.com. and then theres the people who don't even visit either forums and happen to be in Bleach cosplay and decide to join.

hence why i got a bull horn for the gathering, theres no way my shouting will be heard in such a large crowd XD

Its a really good thing that my social-awkwardness tends to disappear at Fanime... xD;; I wouldn't be surprised if this happened to be the biggest gathering this year.

I can't believe how fast Fanime is creeping on us... Make it stop. =<

Looks like there's gonna be a lot more people coming to the Bleach Gathering this year. This 2008 will be a blast. Since we only have about two weeks left until Fanime, I bet that there's a lot of people trying to finish their costumes. I hope everyone makes their deadlines in time. = )

I broached the topic of the bleach vs naruto at the bleach chess topic on cosplay.com. Whats more my sister keeps getting delayed on coming down and starting on my costume, I don't doubt that she can get it done fast since it isn't complicated but I'm still a tad worried.

I wouldn't get to excited about someone protecting you little Byakuya, I'm sure there will be about three to four Yoruichi's (including myself) that will try and mess with you. X3

  -_- I. Hate. Ichigo. Beyond. All. Words. 
 ( Really, I hate him so much I had dream where I beat his ass. )

 and Ichigo didn't beat Byakuya OR Renji. Both battles ended in a tie..but..thats neither here nor there...

 Hmm...so thats both the Yoruichis and the Ichigos, though I'm hardly worried about the later, theyll probably trip over they're own egos >P,

and the bidding has begun! xD although its not going to help u since there are more ichigos from the list. ^^ remember Byakuya you got beat by ichigo (which i be cosplaying as hehe) >D


  -_- I. Hate. Ichigo. Beyond. All. Words. 
 ( Really, I hate him so much I had dream where I beat his ass. )

 and Ichigo didn't beat Byakuya OR Renji. Both battles ended in a tie..but..thats neither here nor there...

 Hmm...so thats both the Yoruichis and the Ichigos, though I'm hardly worried about the later, theyll probably trip over they're own egos >P,

Eh..not so much around here. There are a few nice ones, but most are drama whores. It'll be very nice to get away from that.

Oh, I have the Japanese Bleach game for the Wii. I've always wanted to have a tournament but my friends are lame and don't play video games.
If I can hook the Wii up in my room, and a few of you get bored you can come over beat the crap out of each other Wii-style.

Let's see...other possibilities....
-get a pic of the "Ulquis" surrounded by lots of Bleach characters with trash to put in the bag.
-maybe characters 'bagged' by Ulqui "taking out the trash" theme (which might not be easy to get some cosplayers or with damagable costumes to stand in trash bags but hmm)

Ugh..yea. I'v only played the english version to figure out the plot of the game, I was actually a bit surprised to find that it wasn't just random. I always joke about it too :

Byakuya: Ichigo kuraski, return those shards at once!
Ichigo: But I need them to get home!
Byakuya:...Oh...you mean once you have them all, you'll leave? In that case..take mine. Take them all!   ;D

Ehe...anyway, I wish we could find a larger room to play in because I dont we could fit more than about three people in one room at once.

haha my sister and joke around that Arturo, the random Arrancar they threw in the game who sounds like Antonio Banderas, is the illegitimate child of Grimmjow and Ulquiorra from the past XD cause i think Arturo was around like 1000 years before the others XD

 JYB is the ONLY good thing about Ichigo. I love that man.

 I love Byakuya's Japanese voice Actor even more.
He's such a...spaz.
In the 'sound mode' he screws around more than any of them. There's one line where all i understand is " Fuku Taichou" and "BL-EA-CH WII" I Think hes making fun of Kentaro's (Renji's) english pronunciation.

Voice wise, I really like Gin and Renji's VA's.

There used to be a Youtube video of the three of them in a tournament for the Wii game. BTW Renji's VA beat them both XD

Yea, i think i have that game. It is so cheesy I can barley stand to play it.

Che,
Ishin's retarded, Rukia can't draw, and Kubo is too busy creating more characters that he will eventually ignore than to give the rest of his more profound characters much background/character development.

Hardley a spoiler.

my take on the English VAs: personally, im not too fond of them. only ones i feel that fit the character are Hanatarou, Zangetsu, Unohana, and Yamamoto. all my favorite people (Renji, Byakuya, Shuuhei, and so far of what i've heard of Grimmjow & Ulquiorra) i haven't really been impressed with. but thats just me XD
regarding anime: isn't it back in fillers right now??

*Sigh* Yea. It's really getting so tiring. I remember in the early manga, and even the anime, when there was quite a bit of symbolism and depth.
Then it went into that horrible downward spiral of watching nothing but Ichigo's self righteous ass go around shoving himself in everyone else's business, having to  play the hero when no one asked him too..aha..I'll stop now or I never will.

On an unrelated note; is anyone good with photo editing? I really like the picture I have in my avi but it is obviously not a good avitar. Would anyone mind fixing it up for me?

haha i totally understand what you're getting at though. i'm not all against Ichigo or anything, though he's not ranked amongst my favorites in the series. and i hated seeing Grimmjow get beat down by him D:...meh.

@HuggalotXOmocha - this gathering is going to be epically awesome and OVER 9000 >D
lol
oh im going to post the photo groups tomorrow (cause im kinda tired/too lazy to go get the notebook i have them written down in XD), so you guys will get an idea of how things will go.

yea that was funny and they all wore the same outfit and sunglasses xD. I liked Jūshirō Ukitake expression when they showed him with sunglasses on. lol. but the reason for fillers is to have the guys make the manga further along so that the anime catch up to the manga and eventually cancelled. for example Kenshien. but yea its not a spoiler but just a guess that this time or filler is after the arrancar arc but it sounds like this would it look like IF they survived what happends in the hollow world. by the way any have u noticed that there are more big boob girls and little girls that like ichigo not to mention the new one they introduced in the new ep. I think the creator is a bit of a pedo o_o. someone correct me if i am wrong!

I'm having trouble figuring out a name for my shikai form (for those that don't know I'm making my own char) involving by katana and wazitashi. Then I found some paper claws I've made and thought that I could use those like the claws on my right hand and the wazitashi in my left. I'll post some pictures later of the claws for reference.

@ The Fountains
-Captains
-Lieutenants
-Shikai/Bankai
-Arrancar (includes HM Gin,Tousen, and Aizen)
-Vizard
-Soul Society Rescue (Ichigo, Rukia, Ishida, Chad, and Orihime *not HM version)
-Urahara Shoten (Urahara, Yoruichi, Jinta, Uzuru, the other guy XD, Kuukaku, Don Kanoji, and Mod Souls)

@ The Park
-Divisions 1-13
-Espada
-scene reenactments
-fan requests

annnnd i think i covered about everything. oh regarding the photos at the fountain: i was thinking that instead of doing a huge group Bwahaha photo like we did last year (the number of people coming is just going to make organizing that photo insane ><), i thought that the last pose for every group would be the Bwahaha. that sound ok with everybody?

we did it last year, theres a link to it floating the thread somewhere. its like this huge panoramic photo XD i would love it if we were able to do that photo again, but with the size of the group and the space available i don't think its doable. that and organizing a group that big for a photo would be stressful DX

Hmm I guess this means I should attach myself to a division, Kempatchis will do nicely I think  ;D Would it be ok for shinigami other than the lieutenants to have an arm band?
Anyway I have a link to the claw thing I was talking about (forgot I had this camera). I'm gonna remake them out of black paper/construction paper if I do use them. Should I? Claw on one hand and wazitashi in the other is this plan.

@userpay - the claws look awesome! though if you ask me i wouldn't make them out of construction paper - they won't last very long. you're better off using craft foam or cardboard and paper mache (it will look a lot better too). oh and regarding the armbands - im trying to keep the groups as accurate as possible, so no one other than the lieutenants have armbands ^^;

Eh I don't have the time or materials to do it out of the materials you are suggesting (cardbord might be akward [paper conforms to my fingers], and I don't have experience with the other stuff) and I can at least replace the claws easily compared to that other stuff. So do you suggest doing a number on the costume at all or just leave that out and just say I'm with division 11?

We could do giant group pic at park.

im suggesting using craft foam because 1)its super cheap, like 10 cents a sheet 2)its flexible. i've seen some really great Vincent Valentine claws made out of it, so i don't think your claws would be too hard to do. its your call though, im just offering my opinion ^^.
oh and the giant group picture - true, the park has more space, but from experience last year its really hard to get a group our size organized for a photo like that. people kept moving around, not everyone was visible, and just a bunch of other issues.

@Yuu - oh you're not stepping on toes! i'd feel bad if you didn't get to be in the group photos D: will put you with the captains and the division 6 group at the park, and when we do scene reenactments will get you and a Yoruichi in there for a photo ^^

I suggest using what I did to make my Bankai Zabimaru. Craft foam, + Paper mache for texture + white glue ( Makes paint adhere to plastic) + craft paint, obviously.

It's pretty damned sturdy and gives a really nice effect.

Hmm maybe I'll see if theres the board at the nearby Longs, if not I'll probablly do some research on using the stuff before traveling to the mall to try and find the stuff.

I suggest using what I did to make my Bankai Zabimaru. Craft foam, + Paper mache for texture + white glue ( Makes paint adhere to plastic) + craft paint, obviously.

It's pretty damned sturdy and gives a really nice effect.

Man, that must have took a couple of hours to complete. Does she still have enough time to finish. >.> If I had to do it... money would be my issue. T.T  I don't buy anything else, espcially since Fanime is right around the corner now. = )

More like a few weeks. Thats just because it took about  two days per segment for the paper mache to dry. For something as small as those clawys, and provided she doesnt take an enire day to paper mache one claw; there should be more than enough time.

( I forgot, white glue is needed to make the mache stick to the craft foam as well as paint)

Those ingrediants are all pretty cheap.Shoulnd't even cost $10.

I've never been, so I don't know what kind of swag Fanime has. I usually just look for good Doujinshi, but that;s impossible once the rabid fangirls have picked it to death. >>

I don't think I have the time to try and do paper mache (to bad I'm not in an art class at my school) but the craft foam should be ok, I found a site that has quite a bit of stuff on it
http://amethyst-angel.com/armormaking_vincent.html
and a similar site
http://entropyhouse.com/penwiper/costumes/helmsdeep.html
I'll probably ask my sister where she thinks I could get it when she wakes up (shes the one thats good with costumes and is making me mine [minus the claws, she doesn't even know about that yet]) and if she has any experience.

edit: I think I'm just gonna work on this as a summer project. School is coming to a close so I probably won't have as much time as I think.

@ fanime-lo_ve, expect the finished Katen Kyokotsu sometime this week. my last academic day is monday and then my finals are next monday - weds sooo were gonna finish this up soon relatively. Me and my friend Matt (whose Shunsui[my names matt too o.o]) are thinking of making a commissioning business, anyone think this is possible? x3

Matt^2 Inc. Lol.

Status on Katen Kyokotsu:
We need to paint the handle. and then somehow do some kinda of Ito on it. God dammit. D:

the Tsuba is all painted and detailed all perty. We used a dead plant (dried up) as a brush because it was really thin and we were allowed to do detailed work without buying nice perty brushes XD.
1) Paint Handle Dark Blue (paint is actually drying now.)
2) Cloth (Ito) Handle with Black.
3) String the Tassles (dark red) through.
4) secure the Tsuba.

Almost there.

YAY! MY ichigo SWORD IS FINALLY DONE! WOOT! anyways I got really excited and tested it out on live video camera......i got pretty dorky xD. anyways heres the vid and heres what I am saying in case u cant hear me through the wind.
http://s147.photobucket.com/albums/r307/clawmaster_2006/?action=view&current=FILE0010-2.flv

"This is my sword! I made it in a few weeks for fanime of 08. Its made out of foam and card bored.......and mostly foam. And this is made out of wood. It took me a few days, but I paid the price for it I got cut a little bit hold on....*puts hand close to camera* I got cut with a saw. Anyways  This is the sword you will see at fanime. I pretty proud on how much I did and so it just finished getting dry I will test it LIVE FROM MY HOME IN FAIRFIELD CALIFORNIA MY SWORD AND HOW DURABABLE IT IS! So without further of do....lets test this baby!"

*swings sword wildly xD*

"you can see its durable and light as far as well.......this is concerned. Maybe not as light as a uhhh paper fan or not as light as a paper sword, but light enough for me to hold....look one hand (XD) and its not has heavy when I swing the sword around that when I swing my sword I wont lose my balance. So to all of you fanime people and to my friends, I am going to do a few touch ups on this thing. Its going to be kick ass! And yes.........Bleach cosplay chess! When I am there your going to see the end of this, right here, and the end of this my foot kicking your butt! So watch out Aizen.....I am coming for you! ~end scene~

yea as u can tell i am super excited!

We're carpooling too, like usual, since San Jose is really close. I can't drive yet, but my mom's always willing to drive me and my friends to Fanime. I just hope there will be enough room for props and stuff in the car... My friend is going as Seras Victoria from Hellsing, and she's got the HUGE gun... That's probably gonna take up some space.

Sometimes we stop by somewhere on the way to get something to eat, and we're all in cosplay so its pretty fun seeing people's reactions to what we're wearing. xD

cosplay out in public outside of the convention setting is so much fun to do XD its hilarious getting WTF stares from people. last year after yaoi con my friend and i went to go get pizza. i had changed out of my Ulquiorra cosplay, but i still had the full on makeup and contacts on. there was some like little league thingy going on at the place we ate at, and i kept getting stares from the 8 yr old kids. it was funny catching them staring at me and them act like they were never looking at me in the first place XD

Yep yep yep. I hot-glued the hilt so that it does not move around, and the place where you actually hold the sword (is that still called the hilt(?), now has the blue diamond pattern on it. Yay! \^.^/

@chumichan

Looks awesome!! >.<
Hahaha thank you >w<

My friends and I are carpooling. Yay driving!


@Yuu-

Midnightrosebud is right, driving is fun when I'm with all my friends. the only down side is people touching my cd player when I'm listening to a song I like, or when they change it every sec. when I like the song that was on. But I won't have to worry about that this year. Midnightrosebud will be on the passangers side, so that doesn't happen to me.

My friends and I did that once when we left the Renaissance Faire and got lost on the way home. We stopped at a Taco Bell, and a mother and her two daughter's were staring at us. (We were a maiden, a jester, and a gypsy; not that off the wall, but still....=D)

I agree. xD Wow, its too bad you weren't Ulqui while going out for Taco Bell or something. xD I think we stopped at a Jack in the Box this one morning, and I was in my Sailor Jupiter cosplay... Which is mostly white, so I had to make sure not to stain anything before I even got to the Convention Center. Needless to say though I got some stares... Heheh.

Holy crap! At Sakuracon my friends mother dressed as Unohana and she was PERFECT. She looked just like her and was so soft spoken and nice...

I remember the first time I ran into her. I was bankai Renji. Id let my hair down, scratched up zabimaru and covered myself in fake blood. Taichou was with me..

Me: Unohanaaaaa.....
Captain mom: *Puts her arm around my shoulder* Oh you poor child whatever did you do you to yourself??
Me: *looks at Taichou who glares back* I..I fell..
Taichou:  Hm. You should be more careful Renji. Your lucky you got away with minor injuries, may not be so lucky next time.
Me: *Horrifyed* H..hai..taicho.

Later, I ran into her alone..

Capn Mom: renji..is there something you'd like to say? You know you can talk to me..

Oi, that became one giant joke all weekend..still is. Or.. would be if we had a Renji in our group......waaaaaaaaaaah!  :'(


GAHH

Since my costume doesn't require those gawd awful things ( Waraji, theyre called) I can bring mine for you to wear, if they're still in one piece. I end up having to buy new ones for almost every con.

I would love do drive. The only problem is that the only people I could stand to be stuck in a car with for that long dont want to drive. I'm of no help because since in a city where driving is far more trouble than it's worth; I never bothered to learn.

Oh, and the person I'm going with doesn't like to listen to music on the road. >_<

I'm excited... I already know what I wanna do for next year too. >3>

I'm coming in from Salinas so its only about a 1-1 1/2 hour drive. I'm hoping to start out at 7:00 and get there in time for the Chess game. Unfortunatly I won't beable to do the proper footware but oh well. I think my final decition on my weapons is gonna be my daisho set but I will bring a set of claws just to mess around during the chess game or something. At any rate I hope I can get into accually making stuff like chainmail or a good set of claws from something like craft foam over the summer.

Hey everyone, since you've all been so helpful before, I'm going to take advantage of it and ask for your help once again...?

This might not be the right thread for it exactly, but I know many Bleach cosplayers have to wear wigs for their cosplay, including me. This will be my first time wearing a wig, and I was wondering just some basic things like, is all I need a wig cap, or...? Will the wig stay on just like that?
Oh, and any tips on cutting it? I'm basically using the same wig for both Wonderweiss and (Ocarina of Time) Link, but since most of Link's hair is in his hat I don't really need to worry too much about the back, just the bangs. My friend has a razor for cutting hair, and I was thinking of using that. I hear that using these tools on a wig might ruin the tools after a while, but I think it should be okay since we're only doing it once.

...Uh, yeah. Any tips at all that any of you may have concerning wigs would be extremely helpful, and I know this isn't exactly the right thread, but I feel kind of more at home here anyways. xP

@iNOSOMNiAC

I just pin my hair as close to my head as I can, then I bobby-pin my wig on. I've never used a wig cap in my life. It just stays on like that.

I cut my wig using regular scissors too.

I don't know if I helped any, but good luck! =D

Post by: iNSOMNiAC on May 13, 2008, 10:24:19 PM
That helps plenty! Anything helps, really.

So it stays on just fine like that? That's good to hear, because I've been worried about mine staying on. I think I'm just worrying because its my first time wearing one though.

Thanks very much for your help. =]

If you've got a few dollars and a couple hours you can make some (I made mine): http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=69336&page=1

I did the tsukamaki on my zanpaktou today...had to do a temporary thing for now, but I'll be redoing it after the con. Not going to actually do the real tsuba as I have zero time to do it in, but I'll fix that after the con as well. My sword is too big for the saya with the paint on it so it rubs against it..and that is not good. Going to have to strip the paint off and take off about .010" from each side..hope I have time to do that, otherwise I'll just carry it around unsheathed the whole time.

@iNSOMiAC

Yep yep yep. It stays on just fine. I even had it wind tested!! (We tried on all of our cosplay on a windy day, and only the stray pieces moved, not the wig...>.>...<.<...>.>...-knocks on wood-).
Try putting it on and wearing it a couple of times before Fanime. It'll let you know what feels comfortable, or what needs to be pinned and where.

Glad to be of some help. >.<

GAHH

Does everyone have straw sandals to wear? I ordered mine from CosplayMagic and I'm anxious they might not come by Fanime. ;O;
If you've got a few dollars and a couple hours you can make some (I made mine): http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=69336&page=1

I did the tsukamaki on my zanpaktou today...had to do a temporary thing for now, but I'll be redoing it after the con. Not going to actually do the real tsuba as I have zero time to do it in, but I'll fix that after the con as well. My sword is too big for the saya with the paint on it so it rubs against it..and that is not good. Going to have to strip the paint off and take off about .010" from each side..hope I have time to do that, otherwise I'll just carry it around unsheathed the whole time.
Ahh making sandals looks difficult. owo;

I just found out that my sandals will be ready for pick-up at the post office tomorrow :''D *tears of joy*

XD

Anyways!
@clawmaster - just carry it around on your shoulder like most Ichigo cosplayers do. that way it will be easier for you to strike a pose on the spot if asked for a photo instead of having to take the strap off and detach it from the blade then reattach it and sling it on your back again.

Easier to not hit people with it if its on your shoulder probably. Also if its straped to his back the staff might want to peacetie it to him...

Looking at the tutorial it sounds difficult, but once you get down to it, it is actually really easy. Just time consuming. But good to hear yours will be ready! ^-^

One week... Usually this week seems to take forever to go by, but I have a feeling its gonna be gone in an instant since I'm not yet ready. That's just how things seem to work.

As for packing, I'm already starting, because I'm bound to forget something. Last year I forgot the shoes to one of my cosplays... Luckily the shoes I was using for another cosplay worked out alright with the other.

Oh by the way, how do you travel with wigs if you aren't wearing it there? Like, how do you pack it? I don't wanna ruin it or anything.

depends on how its styled, i suppose. for me, if its not styled i usually just keep it in its bag and pack it along with everything else. if its styled (like my Renji wig is), i pin it to a wig head and it sits on top of the rest of my stuff in my car, making sure its stable enough so it won't fall over if i have to go all Speed Racer and what not XD
OMG EXACTLY ONE WEEK!!!

depends on how its styled, i suppose. for me, if its not styled i usually just keep it in its bag and pack it along with everything else. if its styled (like my Renji wig is), i pin it to a wig head and it sits on top of the rest of my stuff in my car, making sure its stable enough so it won't fall over if i have to go all Speed Racer and what not XD
OMG EXACTLY ONE WEEK!!!

Oh yea, it is, isn't it>>

This is the most unprepared I have ever been for a con.

Probably becuase I'm too busy being pissed off at not having a Kanda costume to concentrate on anything else.
Stupid, i know..but that doesn't make me feel any better dammit. >_<

extended forecasts are our friend... let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that it really is only in the seventies next weekend.

Spent all of today painting kimono... and something fun for my own cosplay.  double kimono aside, I'm hoping for less hot weather cause having my hair braided for Unohana is going to be rough enough, I think.

This is much more on the lighter side XD 

Memo to the 10th squad.  At AX'07, when the 10th squad posed for our group shot, I noticed the Hitsugayas were bunched up on one side and Matsumotos were bunched up on the other side. (http://"http://www.innovateinfinitely.com/animepage/mycosplay/mycosplay/inincosplay2007ax5.jpg")  Let's spread it around.  The Hitsugayas are not afraid of the Matsumotos >.<

I'm going to take pics throughout the gathering.  All of my pics are available on my website including group shots, action shots, and gag shots (within reason).

Oi, other Whitey-chans. I have a couple idea for  photos I'd like to do with you since i don't really belong anywhere else

 1) angry Shiro and Byaku chan between Matsumoto and Yoruichi tit sammich rather..no sammiches as I myself would be horrified, but close enough to get the point across.  >>

 2) All three  'Whitey's" Toushiro, mini Byakuya and Ukitake with candy.

 Don't want to be a phtoto hog, just thought Id run it by you now before I forgot, or have to chase you down at the gathering.

i hope this weather cools down before fanime ;-;
I know! It was 100 degrees at school today. ;O;

I was seriously dying at the end of the day because my last class' AC was busted. =w=;;

If the weather doesn't cool down, I'm going to die in the heat at Fanime on Sunday with my Org13 coat (aka THICK PLEATHER)

NOOOO
-twitches- Don't remind me. I am stubbornly refusing to acknowledge that the weather is so hot, because I have to go out and work in it for the next seven hours in about twenty-five minutes. -shudders in horror- I despise the heat. Where did my beautiful winter-like weather go?! TT.TT

OH GOD THAT'S HORRIBLE

Yeah, I'd rather be freezing than close to passing out with a shiny face and a sticky back D8;;

Maybe I should've just made a manga!Soifon cosplay so I would've suffered less =_=

she'll just have to suck it up! >= D  


Chya, I cant wait for the hot weather. I HATE cold.
 So I'll probly end up with shiny-face too, but so will everyone else. At least I wont be freezing.

actually it feels like my face gets really dry when I'm out in the sun. Cause I can't just help but was it every 30mins. XD

Everyone who posted the forecast for next week, let's hope for 70s.  Imagine wearing our Bleach cosplays in 90 degree weather.  That's what happened at AX'07.  After the gathering, I stayed in the dealer's room for two hours to keep cool.

Oi, other Whitey-chans. I have a couple idea for  photos I'd like to do with you since i don't really belong anywhere else

 1) angry Shiro and Byaku chan between Matsumoto and Yoruichi tit sammich rather..no sammiches as I myself would be horrified, but close enough to get the point across.  >>

 2) All three  'Whitey's" Toushiro, mini Byakuya and Ukitake with candy.


One shot I was thinking was during lunch I pick up garbage and Matsumoto yells at me for combining the garbage.  I hope a Matsumoto shows up for lunch.  I like to get the pic for my webpage :D  I bring garbage bags.  Reference video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsxK-_-hP58

kimu and I are planning the Santa-san candy shot <:-})  Yukari, let's add the photo list all Shiro-chans.

However I do need a little help in the way of is there a certain way to tie the sash and how to tie my katana and wakizashi to me.

For the past few days I've been having the same dilemma. I keep telling myself to start packing, but then I have no idea where to even start. I really should just throw stuff in there whenever I remember something though; Last year I forgot the shoes to one of my cosplays. I was so frustrated with myself, but luckily the shoes to another of my cosplays resembled the ones I forgot, so it worked out okay.

Fanime weekend always goes by really fast. =< There's never enough time to do everything my heart desires, but there's always the next years I guess.

Yay! \^.^/ Four more days...soon to be three days in about a half an hour!! XD

I wrote my "packing list" around a month ago, and I have recently been throwing things in as I remember them. I'm aiming to do the major packing Friday morning as I wait for everyone else to finish their finals. (My last one is on Weds ^o^). That means a five hour WAIT!! I'm going to go crazy! @.@

Weather's looking swell so far too. Yay lower temperatures!

On a side note....I'm getting my Mom to watch Train_Man tomorrow!! To anyone who knows me this is a HUGE deal. Should be interesting...>.>....I'm sure I'll get the "What?! It's ONLY in subtitles?" But she watched Pan's Labyrinth just fine...T.T Anyone else seen it, or have shown it to their parents?

I'm excited because our lovely weather has been replaced by rain already. ( Not that I'm surprised)
I.Hate.Rain.

Haha Kareoke.sweet I'v always wanted to do Ichirin no Hana. It is my favorite song but unfortunately.. I dont have the range for it can't sing worth a damn.

I am sad that the Bleach gathering is only a couple though, since I don't know anyone else at the con.

Oh, and 'll have you know, I'm using a long ass gold colored cord from my Sima Yi outfit for a hair tie. In case I lose one, I  can just cut off another piece. XD

I'm going to show up to the lunch gathering late because I'm attending the Full Metal Alchemist gathering at 10am.  I can't miss FMA because my Edward cosplay is the roots of my cosplaying =)

I want to mention when we take pictures at Plaza de Cesar Chavez park we must congregate in the open areas because we need maximum space for the hugh group of us Bleach cosplayers, photographers, and spectators.

I'm going to do all my packing tomorrow as I need to avoid sleeping (I work graveyard so I have to move to a "normal" sleep schedule for the con) until midnight or so. As for what to pack, I always make a list of everything I want to take just so I know I don't end up forgetting something, as there's been times when I forgot my phone charger.. <.<

Gotta go make my packing list..

Umm.. I know someone asked me this question? Something about rock musical..or something-like-that. ^////^
I'm not to sure about the rock music for a play thats going on next?? But everyone is welcome to check the cd that I plan on bringing. (if people are looking for certain songs.) It's basically all the opening and ending theme songs from Bleach. ( and a few movie and BG songs added too) Unfortunately some people thought that  was bringing some Kareoke songs, but thats not gonna happen. =/

Speaking of songs, I need to purchase some batteries for the cd player I'm bringing. >3> So much to do, so little time.

Btw, most are the songs are pretty up-beat...to get the mode going. = D

It's basically a live action version of the Rescue Arc where the characters sing songs~

Hmm, i made my checklist for fanime about 2 weeks ago. i wrote it down the middle of items i need to bring, and 2 squares on both side, one for bringing there, and another for checking if i repacked everything at time of checkout. make sure you guys do so, dont forget anything <3

the hallelujah goodbye song... is that from GC, by any chance? I love  that song however, I'm a little shy when it comes to dancing in front of others.

@Kanzake -

ah! Rock music from live action.. I've heard of it, but I don't think I have any songs from the live action show. Did you know they do plays to?  thought that was cool, just like how Inuyasha became popular when they introduced the play. I wanna see it, but it's long gone now. = (

WOOT! Fanime is staring you in the face now. Lets pray that we at least live to see it another year. = 3

The first one worth watching, at least, is Saien.  XD  There was a version before that but it's pretty fail.  (And hey, Captain Mom finally showing up in the last one means I had some better references.)

And i turn on my psp and the f-ing screen was cracked! I was completely pissed off because it took forever to mod it and get all my games on it.

So i ask the Manager on what they can do right? and they said they would not compensate ANYTHING because they were not liable. Thus, starts off fanime on a bad foot. Extremely upset.

I was able to make it to the large photo thingy at the fountains, but due to bad timing on my friend's part, as soon as I got to the park my friend called me and I had to leave. =( So I missed the entire thing there, which I am really sad about. I hear it was a lot of fun.

ok time for my post-gathering commentary!
omg the turn out was huge! like 2x bigger than last year at least. definitely have to say my bull horn was a great investment (i hope everyone could hear me ^^; ). i would appreciate any feedback and constructive criticism or anything to improve the gathering for next year (please be kind, i do try my best to make sure everything runs smooth).
have to say that wedding party that crashed our park shoot was awesome. I have the business card the wedding photographer gave me and as soon as the photos are up, ill put them in my gallery and link you guys. nothing like a Soul Society Wedding! :D
i'd like to give a shout out to the Don Kanoji cosplayer - thanks for putting up with me calling you out so often to do photos with the groups! you were awesome. also like to thank Kenpachi/Akuma for organizing the captains, and for TseUq for taking the horn over at the park when i needed to jump into photos. speaking of which, i wasn't able to take many, so if you guys have lots of photos of the gathering do link them!
i hope everyone enjoyed the earlier activities we had over at the park - like i predicted the Arrancarmy prevailed in the chess game :D lol. thanks Kuroneko and Doragon for organizing it, as well as bringing goody bags. it was pretty good for a first run, and im sure next year we'll have a better turn out :)
hmm ok i think i covered about everything i wanted to say...alright then lets see those pictures! :D

I am afraid as I sort my pics I won't have a lot of the Bleach stuff. But what a great gathering for all the events, and what a great group of those of you I got to spend time with. Thank you!!

The bullhorn was great Yukari. As any large gathering, the key problem is that the directions have to be repeated facing different directions. The way the sound works out there and with the crowd is those behind can't hear, even with the bullhorn. But I think it went well overall, considering just how huge a turn out!!! Amazing!

As for you, young Byakuya, I thought we took care of your sulking last night with the 3 Captains' Dinner?
hmmm......

@ Yukari Kaiba

I liked the STFU bullhorn. I could hear you very well, granted I was in the front taking photo's the whole time.  :P

The park shoot was a lot of fun too!

I've uploaded a lot of Bleach pics thus far, but not all. There are far TOO MANY!! I went a little picture crazy.  ;D

In front of fountains; just follow the links:

I took at least one photo of just about everything from the first Captain shot at the fountains through the wedding photos. If there are any requests, just ask and I shall post them up! =^__^=

CanNOT wait until next year!!

I had an absolute blast at the gathering, meeting and hanging out with all sorts of fun and new folks.  Thanks to everyone (and especially Yukari) for the great experience!  <3  I certainly plan on being back next year, even if I may not be cosplaying Bleach, and I think my sister does as well -- she had tons of fun too, especially for attending her first BIG gathering.

My minion (er, sister) took a lot of photos during the gathering, but she hasn't got them up yet.  I'll certainly be sure to link them when she does!

@Everyone-

Was it me or was this the most awesome Bleach gathering Fanime has ever seen. Since
the gathering went so smoothly I can only hope for the best for next year as well. I'm also suprised that my batteries didn't die for my compact CD player! 0.o  The batteries even lasted past the Naruto Gathering too. ( Did the Naruto gathering look smaller this year compared to the Bleach gathering???)


btw, I posted a slide show on Youtube... do a search under "Fanime 2008" It should come up.

@Yukari Kaiba-

I loved the STFU horn, it was one of my favorite moments, besides Bleach frisbee. I also hope that next year I'll have a flawless costume to boot.

I'm already excited for next year too. XD

 The idea of emocar with a bullhorn was funny enough, but the " STFU" put it on the list of 'greatest cosplay moments'.

 Saterday morning I pulled a tendon in my leg, had a gash in my chest from that damned binding, and was about to pass out from lack of food..( or something)

 My friend ( the 'normal' Byakuya) offered to take me to get something to eat.
 I told him 'after Frisbee'.
 I ended up staying for the entirty of the gathering. I just couldn't pull myself away.

Thanks everyone for making my first fanime con so incredibly awesome. You all were so friendly and most of all drama-free.
I'm so returning next year.

Grimmjow was SOOO happy that I asked him to give the finger in the photo. "No one asked me to do that yet." He said.

I also yelled during the Arrancar group photo to yell GIVE THE FINGER GRIMMJOW!!!

@chumichan - yeah i was pretty stoked too that i finally got to meet Jin and Miguel too :D i ran into Miguel early sunday morning at the Starbucks in the Hilton and we chatted for a bit - he told me he thought the gathering was really well organized and well run (which i was really happy to hear coming from him XD). they're both super awesome people, i hope they decide to come back next year ^^

Yukari, thank you very much for organizing the Bleach gathering.  Without you, the gathering could have been chaos and confusion.  One suggestion for next year.  Have a group shot of non-captain and non-vice captain Shinigami at the fountains.  Maybe there was a shot and I can't remember.  I remember seeing a

I took over 1,300 pictures.  I work on them tonight.  Prioirity goes to the gatherings including the gag shots.  Thanks for waiting.

I want to comment on the weather.  The weather was perfect.  Cloudy and cool.  For some reason, I still got a mild sunburn on my face :(

The wedding at the park was awesome and hilarious ^__^  Best part was holding the swords and singing the wedding song as the bride and groom and the others walked through . . . twice.

I have more to say.  I'm at work now.  Stay tuned =)

-cracks up- That's okay. My mom doesn't wake me up anymore. The last time she did she gave both of us a heart attack. (It was still dark-ish, I was still dreaming, and thus I thought a physco killer was in my room. No, I do not handle horror well...at all).

@ chumichan: unfortunately, this is as close as I have to one of you looking at the camera: http://pics.livejournal.com/ilanabean42/pic/000zfra2/g69
My sister (the Fourth Squad mook) and I were both in that, so I apologise for the photos. I think I saw some from the front, though I don't remember whose they were.  If I do find them again, I'll link?  (The rest of her photos are here: http://pics.livejournal.com/ilanabean42/gallery/0002ds5k -- the Bleach ones are mixed in there.)

I fail in timeliness to this thread, but to echo what I said over on Cos.com: GATHERING WAS AWESOME.  It was lovely to meet all of you, and see some of you (I'm looking at you, punk!) again.  It was my sister's first real large gathering and I think that she had a good deal of fun too.  (And I'm glad people liked the cookies. :3 )

We're both definitely planning on being back next year!

just a thought though ^ ^

Yukari, thank you very much for organizing the Bleach gathering.  Without you, the gathering could have been chaos and confusion.  One suggestion for next year.  Have a group shot of non-captain and non-vice captain Shinigami at the fountains.  Maybe there was a shot and I can't remember.  I remember seeing a

I took over 1,300 pictures.  I work on them tonight.  Prioirity goes to the gatherings including the gag shots.  Thanks for waiting.

I want to comment on the weather.  The weather was perfect.  Cloudy and cool.  For some reason, I still got a mild sunburn on my face :(

The wedding at the park was awesome and hilarious ^__^  Best part was holding the swords and singing the wedding song as the bride and groom and the others walked through . . . twice.

I have more to say.  I'm at work now.  Stay tuned =)



and I want to see every single picture you took. =3


ahhh~ I miss Fanime already. *sighs* I'll be 22 next Fanime, and I still feel like every year is like my first year there.

I'll be 22 next year as well, but this was my first year >_< lol

and as for the fillers, part of me doesn't want to get attached to the new captain, cuz if it's fillers, I'm thinking he's prolly gonna go bye bye at the end of the arc :(

as well, does anyone have photos of my Nanao actually throwing the rose petals on me? We haven't found that photo online yet :( Midnight posted the squad 8 and another pose, and thank you much for that :) just looking for the last one now lol

just a thought though ^ ^

i usually wait a bit to start the new thread, since everyone is still coming here and posting pictures and what not. i also noticed everyone is starting up super early on their gatherings, but im going to wait a bit to give everyone a chance to post links and whatnot, since i want to keep the 09 thread focused on the 09 gathering and not what happened this year ^^ (believe me though, i am already planning for next year XD STFU horn will make a return! lol).

jeez you guys are making 22 sound old! i'll also only be 20 next year too XD (birthday is this coming tuesday actually XD).

I'm still working on the Bleach pics.  Thank you everyone for waiting.

Here is a thank you pic (http://www.geocities.com/raym61/yukarithankyoupic.jpg) to Yukari for organizing the activities and calling out the photo shots.  I remember someone posted a comic regarding the pic above.  I think it was you Yukari.  If the joke is way off, I can fix it =)
