Anime Expo is here! Will be busy these next few days! woo hoo!
otakunet51
oi! try to get an intervciew with yoko kanno!

i love bebop!

and with me being an artist(sounds too high'n'mighty, really...), you might as well try to get in touch with that chara designer ^^
Ben
There was tons of cowboy bebop fans there! I'm be posting 100+ Pics and AVIs soon as well as a in depth review.
Cathleen
Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun!! I've never been to a U.S. con before, but hopefully next year if I can save enough money. Can't wait to see the pics! wish I was there....!
yukidomari
I went-- I saw yoko kanno.. and I cosplayed as julia heartilly from FFVIII and was first up for the karaoke contest ..it was lots of fun biggrin.gif
Ben
Welcome to the forum yukidomari. You were in the red dress right? We took pictures of everyone who sang in the karaoke. So We have your pic too! I don't think you joined the Masquerade contest did you? Also did you agree to the 6 finalist for the? We thought other people did way better than some of the six finalist(including you icon_wink.gif ).
yukidomari
ehhh?? how'd you recognize me... wait, I said I was julia >_< yeah, that was me. I was first up! so unfair LOL. I didn't think anyone recognized julia cause the only pics of her were ingame pics (no fmv's..)

I didn't agree with them at all! The two girls who sang chobit's 'let me be with you'.. the first song they did 'AI' from Excel Saga.. the voices weren't even turned off! I recognized the original track's music right off the bat! But I do agree with the 1st place because she was really good ^^
The girl who crossplayed as DIE from Dir en Grey.. she didn't even memorize her lyrics.. and half way through her final song she just stopped and told everyone she wanted to hear them clap! I didn't understand it at all.. and personally, its a karaoke contest.... she did like a rock song.. that wasn't even barely *singing*... she could've had a better choice of song. I didn't do very well but I do think the people who improvised a song but still knew the lyrics really deserved a mention...

this was my first time at a con, and first time cosplaying, and it was fun biggrin.gif
Ben
Actually I didn't regonize the character. I just remember a girl in a red dress sang first. You looked lovely in that dress by the way.

Yeah some of the people in the audience thought it was the two girls voice but i was like no way that they could sound like that. When we heard who the six finalist were, we was like wtf? and left to cover the AMV instead.

Did you attend all 3 days?
yukidomari
nope, I only went on saturday. -_-

A dozen or so people took pictures of me but I've only seen like 2 of me >_< I forgot to take pictures for msyelf.. >_<
Ben
Did anyone regonize your character? You should have attended on Sunday so you could check out the cool coplay contest. Are you planning on attending future anime expo?
n1ghtk1ds

Ben
There's a bigger anime Expo in Cali! I think around 6000 people attended AXNY while 15,000 attends the one in Cali. Both expo was ran by SPJA.

actually, a girl who cosplayed as rinoa (main girl character of final fantasy viii) recognized me (cause I was cosplaying as her in-game mother). But that was basically it... other people just liked the dress, period. Another guy thought I was cosplaying Faye Valentine in her ball room dress -_-; Maybe that's why people took pictures of me -_-
starwynd
talking about final fantasy viii, let me start playing that game. biggrin.gif
girl in red dress at the expo? :confused: were you all over the place?
I saw this one hot lady in a red dress!!...and have to say she was cute...dunno if it was you :confused: ..anyway back to playing final fantasy viii......any tips? looks complicated

The dress reminded me of a dress worn by the lead star in the Resident Evil movie poster. Nevertheless it looked good. :love: I guess you'll probably be cosplaying a more regonizable character next time huh? icon_wink.gif
