haldir_whore @ 02:53 pm: Drama, Drama, Drama.
Hi, my name is Tori. xD And I'm a con-aholic.

Now I know everywhere in the world there is drama, but in the cosplay world it's everywhere and in a thick and heavy overbearing cloud. I've lost so many friends, and I'm so isolated out in Woodlawn/Clarksville, there are so few who cosplay here. Few even in TN you can get in contact with who cosplay. So, I've met a bunch of new people this past weekend at Katsucon, but yeah.

I love meeting new people, and a lot of my friends are over in the east coast and whatnot and don't attend MTAC. And the few friends here, and in Nashville might be too busy to go, or just aren't into it. Me having illness doesn't help when it comes to meeting people. I really am not going to the con if I have to go alone. I still need to get a room, and it's always more fun and cheaper when you room with lotsa people.

I wanna get to know new people in TN I can cosplay with not just here but at other conventions, since I go to Katsu, Ota, AUSA, AWA, just to name a few. Drama has just..nh, like I said I've got some good friends now in the cosplay community peiod and am getting away from the dramatic hell. But in TN, so limited to have friends.

I'm thinking about doing some anime, but maybe finally my videogame cosplaying at MTAC since I've had it postponed from other anime groups and whatnot. I'd love to meet new people online, make friends before the con. Maybe even as much as to split a room. Who knows what can happen. But I really just want to hookup with some people around here, get new friends and everything. Who goes to a convention alone and who wants to wander by themselves yanno? I'm not saying I have no friends. Just the main best buds aren't here, and don't go to my current home con. Even though I'll be moving in with my best friend later on this year in Virginia. But that doesn't change meeting new people and also hey. We're cosplayers, con goers. We travel!

I just am here, I'd love to meet new people, get some close friends. I'm a big gamer, anime lover. I like yaoi. I'm into jrock, but don't cosplay it as much anymore. Just..yeah. I dunno, I just am dying to meet new people! And if you wanna chat and whatnot I'm here! There's a lack of TN cosplay love, and it needs to be corrected.

So there was my plea. I'm interested in getting to know new people, interested in cosplay.. one of my major hobbies. Being so isolated it's hard to meet just random people in the street anyway. So if ya wanna chat, comment. Hit me up! The more cosplay love, the better I say! xD

This Friday and Saturday, the FMA movie will be in theaters across the US!

If you can, come in costume (cosplayers wanted!) and hang out with us, help spread the word about MTAC and cosplay, and go to see the movie and show your support for anime on the big screen. Hope to see you there!!

mahoumikekun @ 04:01 pm: Request for Cosplay Commissions
Alright, this is very random, but I've been meaning to do this and haven't. x_X

I suck horribly at making costumes, like, incredibly. I might seriously sit down and work on learning, but for now, I'm going to be lazy and just offer my friends money.

I have a few costumes that I would love to be able to wear at next year's conventions. (Heck, if one of these could be finished by AWA, I'll be extra happy!)

I will cover all of the fabric/matieral costs, as well as reimbursement for your time and hard work. We can discuss a price range, but as with most commissions, it's better to wait until the finished product is complete, so you can put a price value on your time and opinion of the overall product.

If I do pay anyone for making me a costume -- I do expect it to be a good costume. I don't mean... like OMGAR I NID 2 WEEN FIRST PLACE AT AX COSTUME CONTEST LAWLS... but something that you can be proud to say "I made that..." and I can be proud to wear and tell people "Yeah, so-and-so made this costume... they're amazing."

So enough rambling. Here is the list of characters I wish to have costumes of, in order of preference. We can talk measurements and such if anyone wishes to actually help me with these. ^^; I can provide more reference pictures, too, if need be. If more than one person wants to do a costume... unless there's a huge fanlove you have for that outfit or something... I'm going to have to go based on who will offer less money. xD Sorry. x_x;

Who?: Local artists and performers doing their thing.

What?: Sellnig arts, jewelery, and all sorts of other things.... :D

Where?: The Flying Monkey...duh....

When?: Every Saturday.... Starting at 12:00 p.m. and lasting throughout the day.

We depend on you all for this opportunity and love it when people do come to the events... so please try and make it out so that we can continue making the arts scene flourish in this town we call home, Huntsville.

mahoumikekun @ 05:18 am: Calling for the Formation of a Cosplay Group~!
Right, so, hopefully most of you know my obsession with Phantasy Star Universe and the entire Phantasy Star series. Well, it just hit me.

We should have a cosplay group of the characters in PSU ;D

So yeah.. Krystal has already said she's wanting to be in the group, but still hasn't decided on a character. For your convience, I've gathered pictures of all of the main story characters from the game's offline mode and thrown them in my photo album, so check 'em out if you're at all interested in participating in this group. I know that it's a bit late to do this for MTAC, but... maybe for next year's? Or maybe at conventions later on in the Summer/Fall. In any case... I'm really excited, cause the character designs are REALLY hot. Here's a list of all of the characters included, as well as their character race. As far as the races go... you have Humans (average all-around), Newmen (magically inclined), Beasts (physically strong), and Casts (androids).

I'm going to add this post to my LJ memories so I can keep it updated with who is going to be who... characters who are taken will be listed in bold.

* Curtz (Cast)
* Dallgun (Human)
* Doghi (Newman)
* Dorson (Human)
* Ethan (Human) - Mi~ke
* Hal (Human)
* Hyuga (Human)
* Karam (Human)
* Norphe (Cast... I think)
* Karen (Newman)
* Leo (Beast)
* Liina (Beast)
* Lou (Cast)
* Lumia (Human)
* Magashi (Cast)
* Maya (Newman)
* Mirei (Newman)
* Nav (Cast... I think)
* Rutsu (Newman)
* Taragi (Human)
* Tomrain (Human)
* Tonnio (Beast)
* Tylor (Beast)
* Vol Brothers (Human, Newman, and Beast)

noire_shiro @ 06:17 am: New
Hola. I'm brand new to this community. But that's not all. I'm also a complete n00b to cosplaying (unless you include dressing up in pre-17th century attire and camping in it as cosplaying). I really would like to get into cosplaying, it's just none of my friends do... And I don't want to be alone.. So.. Yeah. Well, I'm willing to make friends, take any advice, and any of the like.
Oh, and for whatever reason, (or rather, in case people care), I live about 30 (45 if traffic, which is always) minutes northeast of Nashville.
Bye, bye. ^_^
