Is anyone going to this?

How about if I post this bit of news:

"Acclaimed Composer Yuki Kajiura Returns to Anime Expo for a Live Concert with FictionJunction (http://www.anime-expo.org/guests/acclaimed-composer-yuki-kajiura-returns-to-anime-expo-for-a-live-concert-with-fictionjunction/)"

Article mentions SEED but not any of her (substantive, superlative) work on Noir or Madlax? I am not amused.

I found out about this at canta-per-me. I have done the math. It would cost me around $900 for four days, including air fare, hotel, food, and getting into the concert. I already have a trip to the homeland planned, too.

Do I go, or do I not go? Fuck, I can't decide, but I'm leaning toward going.

There are plenty of good neighborhoods in LA.

At least, nonviolent ones.

Hey, you didn't answer my question? =3=

And that's great, since you'll be sharing the bunk with a cat I didn't have when I made the offer!

She owns that bed now.

Hm... If I can save up enough from my job, I might just go.

Then again, plain ticket, and a hotel room will eat away at most of what I make. Prolly won't get to buy much :/ What month is it, anyway?

You could always volunteer and help out at the convention. 4 hours a day will give you crash space at one of the nicer hotels in LA!

But then who will pay for the air fare!?

I could likely handle air fair. But, this is going down in July. If I wanted to go to a con, I should have began planning months in advance.

No, but there's never been a year when people have been turned away. They just say that as CYA in case the spots ever fill up.

Aaaagh. Plane ticket costs are riiising. Aaaaagh.

...I need to take another look at my funds. Urk.

Though with that said, unless I really can't afford it, I intend to show, the atlantic and the 20 hour economy flight be damned...

alfheimwanderer

Yes, well, you will be in the US anyway, and you will get housing and ticket taken care of. You want to see Yuki Kajiura, don't you?

Yes, well, you will be in the US anyway, and you will get housing and ticket taken care of. You want to see Yuki Kajiura, don't you?

There are many good reasons to postpone my trip till next year where I'd have better timing on getting plane tickets, have more funds to make the trip into something more than it is, and other similar goodies.

Yuki Kajiura however, has entirely invalidated every single reason aside from "can't afford it". I will show unless I am actually incapable of doing so.

Though I'll probably have to volunteer. Doesn't seem to be any other housing cheap enough and close enough to matter...

Anyone can tell me how volunteering would work? And for how many nights one can take advantage of the crash space? The latter is especially important, since my plane ticket purchases will depend on that.

alfheimwanderer
May 29th, 2012, 10:41 AM
For volunteering - working 4 hours a day will give you crasb space from the night of Day 0 (June 28) through the night of Day 3, with checkout on Day 4. Notably, you will be asked to be at the Crash Space meeting at 8:30 PM PST on June 28 to be assigned a room.

Hours include Day 0 (and shifts are available then) - and as a minimum, 12 hours will be enough to secure hotel space through last night, with the last 4 just done if you want the refund for your convrntion ticket (and more cash to spend on day 4, with all the deals)

Usandru
May 29th, 2012, 11:52 AM
Hmm, probably going to be a bit inconvenient, but for the sake of having some buffer (and potentially a short free day in LA or something) I'll probably have to check in for a single night at some hotel before and after...

...well, tickets for leaving on the 2/7 are expensive anyhow, so I guess I can live with that. Really, waiting a day to leave practically pays for itself...

Hmm. Have to get these calculations done quickly. Before ticket prices rise. Again. >.<

Kajiura Yuki concert ticket GET!

Plane ticket still in limbo. Argh. I already hate travel budgeting and this is the first time I've ever done it. On the upside, I now know that I can theoretically afford the whole damn thing with no real issues.

Now I just need to figure out when I'll get my money from SKAT. Damn you, inaccurate income assessment and complicated tax service.

Well, it should be no surprise to hear that I am going. And yes, I know of the Kalafina concert last year from being basically in the very front of that smaller, more intimate venue.

As for you, Usandru - think of it as useful experiencr for your future globetrotting days.

I'm definitely up for meeting up at the Con, though I have no clear idea what I'll want to do there exactly just yet. I'll throw up my "to do" list once I have it though, marking out all the things I want to check out. We can figure out when something intersects, and maybe try and meet up at some point at the start?

Well, in any case, while there are a few things to work out yet, mostly of the "argh, plane ticket" variety, I'm expecting to arrive on the 28th and leave on the 3rd. We'll see how it goes from there come tomorrow when I should be able to finally nail that last persistent requirement for everything to get the go-ahead.

HolySeraph
June 11th, 2012, 02:17 AM
May be able to squeeze in the funds for this. Likely depend on if I can get all the reimbursements from volunteering and/or reduce burdens of cost with others. And presuming Life(job searching) doesn't rear its head.

I REALLY wanted to go to the Aniplex USA panel too, but there's no way I'd give up going to the Total Eclipse panelf for it. If anyone does go to the Aniplex panel though, if you could ask in the Q&A or just find out if they plan on putting the in-character commentary on the English Bakemonogatari bluray release, I'd be immensely appreciative.

Whoops. Totally forgot to slap my own "interesting events" list up. Did it in a google.doc because I do everything there these days.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1P0Jx1krbe6-zFRGnb5GFIjcK2v4IgZOQCUvpR37mbpo/edit

HolySeraph

Wished RL was under better circumstances so I could prepare much better and have cheaper airfare.

I'll just treat the con and meeting everyone as a late b-day present for myself.

This V chest thing turned out to be PITA as I can't get it to align right.

The skirt was super easy in comparison. Though the hem ended up twisted. At this point, I'll take whatever shortcuts and cheats I have to do to get it together cause I want to wear a ballroom gown already!

That aside, it isn't the only crossplay and I do have a single male cosplay that I previously made.

Theocrass
June 23rd, 2012, 01:20 AM
That hat looks like it would be a nightmare to make, if only because I can't make it out all that well.

So you just made the whole thing?

I gotta give you props, that's pretty impressive.

So ... wait, what?

OMG!

It's a trap! (We're cool if you are, I just like saying that)

Or is it?

I didn't follow that last part all that well.

Basically: Are you a dude or not, because that would be really helpful in us actually meeting? X_x

HolySeraph
June 23rd, 2012, 01:27 AM
I'm skipping the hat. The rest I made.
I'm pretty sure I'm a dude. Physically at least.

Trading cell numbers is guaranteed to be more effective. without pictures, a predetermined time and place is a bit like playing Russian roulette.

Yuki Kajiura, known by her group names See-Saw, Kalafina, FictionJunction (Yuuka) has written music for a bunch of awesome IPs, like Xenosaga, Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero, etc.

She, the band and the four vocalists were all there tonight and blew our minds. Goddamn everything sounds so much better in person.

Better get to sleep while Credens Justitiam (PMMM), Mezame (MY-HiME), and that awesome Sacred Seven track I forget the name of are still ringing in my ears.

I'm the one who looks like he wished he finished his Alfred Walken costume in time to wear to the Yoshimune Kouki autograph session.

EDIT:

Finally got off my rear and took pics of everything I got while I was there.

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b383/heeroyuy117/swag1-s.jpg

Deeeefinitely liked the Muvluv stuff. Meeting Yoshimune Kouki was probably the highlight of the entire con for me, so I was glad the autograph line was short enough I managed to not only get his signature on the autograph board but he also signed my TSF Cross Operation artbook in the middle there (couldn't hold it open to get a good shot of it with my camera). The mangaka for the manga adaptation was there too, and he signed my volume 8 copy on the right. Four Leaf Studios apparently had a booth in artists' alley where they were selling their latest Katawa Shoujo artbook (bottom left), which was pretty cool. Also got a few doujin I've been a fan of, and although it's not in the picture, I also got a Satori Komeiji credit card. The MangaGamer T-shirt I won in their raffle, and the blue Gravitation T-shirt I got from a contest at AMV Iron Chef.

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b383/heeroyuy117/swag2-s.jpg

And these were the posters I picked up. The Gundam Wing one seemed classy enough that I felt it would be worth framing, and I could hang in a nice apartment without feeling like it was out of place or too "baroque" like a lot of anime posters. Got the Duck Hunt firing range target for my Dad (he got a good laugh out of it), and I'm saving QB for a day when I can go to the range with my friend who has a Barrett 50cal. I'm totally gonna go Hommando on that thing.

I think it's the 'stache.

I am pretty sure a fairly ripped dude cannot even stand up wearing just the King's pauldrons, if you hammer the whole thing out of pure gold.

Precisely. There are no worthy Gil cosplayers so people should stop trying.

LOL, I think all the fakers would try to steal his armor. :neco_arc:

Try being the key word, since I doubt anybody at a con could actually lift anything heavier than cardboard replicas.

I dunno.

I can break doors, fling my brother through the air and into a wall, lift multiple people into the air with a bear hug, and lift a fair amount of weight. Though, I haven't lifted in a couple years.

gold's pretty heavy and soft though

if the armor's too thick, you won't be able to wear it, if it's too thin, it might just bend under its own weight

Another Gilgamesh. Along with lovely Saber cosplay that looks better in person(as then you can see the velvet).

Yes, the Iris were major disappointments. I took a picture of a better one later on during AX, but I am currently waiting for the arrival of my new camera cable because my sisters lost mine, the frickin' coonts.

By the way, Kayneth is actually a girl. Just FYI.

I've never seen a good Iri. But I've got a friend that's about to break this. Her costume is already finished, but she's waiting for me. What a shame, I need a wig and a pair of shoes.

You're ignoring the fact that it would be impossible to make it out of pure gold (instead of a gold alloy of some kind), since the pieces would warp under their own weight due to gold's high malleability. Even if it was made out of an alloy though, it would still be incredibly heavy (and expensive) with any serious ratio in it...

All I am hearing here is the whining of a poorfag who also lacks exercise.

Get a job.

And start going to the gym.

Also get some smithing lessons.

Well, pretending to be serious a moment: http://goldpricenetwork.com/gram/
That's fifty USD per gram if you want 24 karat (and, knowing Gil, he'd accept nothing less).

I guess that's what happens when you have an infinite mana supply and you don't expend any.

The mana first goes to the armour, then the gut and thighs.

I think thigh high boots is a hard one. Since they can be quite expensive and finding the right fit may be difficult(may not always be able to try them on).
In this case, it looks like she made her own 'boot wrappings'. Not sure how hard it would be to make some decent looking boots though. But can see your point.

That is rather quite expensive on a single item for what I usually set aside for a single cosplay. I can usually get wigs/fabrics to be much less than that(individually) compared to that.

Well.. yeah, kinda expensive.. But it's better to spend money with something that's gonna be very good than with something crappy. Otherwise I'd rather not spend anything and don't cosplay.

$80 per item? Man, I'm going waaaay over-budget then on my TSF cosplay... stupid arduino's being $45 each...

If you're doing a Saber cosplay though, with how (comparatively) simple-shaped the armor pieces are, going the extra yard and using sheet metal is well worth it (if you know of a motorcycle repair shop near you it makes it even easier too).
