Good to see this up here! :)
It should be an interesting challenge but I can't not. She's just too awesome.
I mentioned this already on the Ayacon forums, but I shall say it again. Cue squee in three, two, one. Ee-hee-hee-hee! ^O^ Yay for you doing Sumomo. So adorable! ^^ ... ... ... ... ... Sumomo for the lovely assistant at Blind Dating Sim?
You know, I actually had that very same thought. She'd be a pretty good assistant.
It's so tempting to make it Kuro again, if only because seeing my bitchy little catty butler persona, having to try and bring order, with a cute little Sumomo bobbing around and doing her antics is just asking for hilarity to ensue.
Mind you, it's not like Mr. Satan (who as far as I've last checked is in the lead) wouldn't be an awesome combo with Sumomo.
Haha, would that make it better or worse than having to deal with Erika? At least Erika didn't dance ;)
But I'm sure whoever you pick, there'll be plenty of scope for shenanigans.
... Oh God, a scenario that just popped into my mind. If it was Captain Kuro, and a phone went off in the crowd, naturally, I'd be catty about it and go on about it, like I did with latecomers, sorry, "LATECOMERS!". ... Sumomo would only make it worse, by dancing around, singing "Denwa deeee-su! Denwa deeee-su! Denwa deeeee-sssuuuu!"
^^ Do you have any props planned for Sumomo, like a little whistle or a tambourine?
I was definitely going to attempt at least the tambourine, possible a whistle too. She has to have some way of making a racket in idle moments ;)
(I also figured I could attempt some sort of standby routine for some of the "lull" moments but we'll see how that goes)
Now that Ayacon has come and gone, and there has been no Blind Dating Sim (despite a feeble attempt to try and pull off an impromptu one, when I had to cancel my original panel - le sigh, computer troubles), I think it's time we think about this little fun duo again. Whether it be Sumomo and Satan or Sumomo or Kuro, or whoever I end up doing for it. That is, if I get to run it again, this Amecon...
Yes! Hopefully by then I will actually get around to acquiring the costume (once October's out of the way I can start thinking for next year xD)
And I might even have some better equipment, like actual blindfolds or masks to cover people's eyes, microphones, etc.
