I'm with you on this one...a proper convention appeals more than expo to me. And the Park Inn is epic ^_^

I've not signed up or anything but are they doing an accommodation deal like Kitacon did?

I just read that the rate is £65 a night per double room as a special Fuyucon rate. I think if you register and pay first you get a code to say you are at Fuyu with it. Although other posts just say you mention you are at Fuyucon.

Gah still don't know which one I'm going to yet! I'd like to do Fuyu again as it was epic, but at the same time I'll be in London already that week and don't know if we can afford to travel and get membership on top of that.
It also depends on what costumes we do, our current ones planned aren't con safe at all so it'd have to be for Expo but with everything else going on I'm not sure we'll have time to finish them. T.T
Why must it clash! DX


26 Apr 2009 - 21:3313447
As far as i've been told...Fuyucon had their dates out way before expo...so it's not them that's making it clash. >_>;;

There's no competition anyway! Fuyucon every time! ^_^ Once my student loan comes through I'll make sure to register!


26 Apr 2009 - 21:4513448
Yep with the rooms you just mention you're with Fuyucon when you book, theres no code as far as i'm aware.


26 Apr 2009 - 22:0513449
im so happy alot of cosplayisland people are coming ^^ GGX group and Hellsing goodness ^^ i really cant wait, me and Fables have to get our room booked soon O_o

I just heard that it was FuyuCon making the clash because the Oct. Expo has been running way longer than FuyuCon... but I can't be sure, so sorry if it's the other way around ^__^ No offense is meant! You would still think that the organisers of both events would make sure they don't clash though O__O

Well it's the same hotel as kitacon...so I assume it's the same policy, and I didnt have to pay until I got there. ^_^

And the whole expo/fuyu clashing thing...is tricky territory really. I guess at the end of the day people will just have to choose.

If we can afford it then we'll come but it depends on how the cost of everything the week before turns out. >< It's working out to be pretty expensive so far and that's not including the week in london yet. T.T
We looking at changing our costume plans to next May too for extra time (and less luggage for the week) so that should be one problem solved.

I should be at Fuyu - really want to go after seeing the great venue at Kita! I'm defo getting a hotel room at the Park Inn this time though!

Possible cosplays for then: Albel Nox (Star Ocean), Elika (PoP) and / or Polaris (X-Men)

Yes, the venue is really suited to convention life I think! The corridors to the meeting rooms (which were chillout rooms and bring and buy and ops) were a bit narrow and I nearly freaked out in them a couple times when they got crowded because sometimes (and only sometimes) I can get a little claustrophobic. Fortunately we didn't have to spend too long crammed into them ^^ I loved the main hall and the dealers room and the bars... the layout was great! I'll also be getting a room at Park Inn this time too. I was staying over at the Ibis and it was quite pleasant, but my wallet was damaged for it O__O

On another note, I love Star Ocean! I always wanted to cosplay Nel Zelpher because she's just cool

You'd really suit Nel, Tetra, your costumes are fantastic! Do it!!!

Ooh luke do bring Ultimate Wolverine! That would rock! XD


28 Apr 2009 - 08:5513539
If I can convince many others to do X-men or Marvel and it looks ok then I might have to Holly ^.^

Awwh thank you ^^ I don't think I'd be able to take Nel to FuyuCon because I don't think I will have enough luggage space but if you arrange a Star Ocean photo op/meet then I would be willing to pack it. It's not a complex costume and I could nock it up cheap in a week or so so just let me know closer to the con ^^ I want to make her brown corset anyway, I've ended up with loads of brown leather XD I'm sure I have some grey and black fabric hanging around and a wig I could use as a stand in ^^

I won't be bringing an X-men costume though I'm afraid. I wanted to cosplay Storm or Jean from X-3 (I know... the movies weren't brilliant but Jean/Phoenix has such a pretty red top, corset, and jacket O__O)

You should definitely do Jean Tetra, you'd definitely suit her!

So tempted to do an X-men cosplay now.

It's been decided, if we can afford it after the wedding we'll be coming! Just got to work out how to take costumes as well as a week's worth of normal clothes too. ><


28 Apr 2009 - 16:4013564
I'll see what I can do about a Star Ocean shoot then
And moar X-men cosplay for the win!
