i wanna come now.......

Possibly be doing Velvet from Odin Sphere then...... and possibly another Shugo Chara outfit. unless i can slot into a group.

hmm...

i'll be at uni so the budget will be tight. >w<
although if i pay now or in 2 weeks i won't have to worry. HA!

still won't be able to make Amecon though..... hmm.....

can a few people clear something up for me though?

What are the actual dates?
I know it's the Park Inn hotel but where is it?
Was it really as awesome as people have been saying it was last year?
Is the payment for the entire weekend, or can i just pay for 2 days etc etc.

i've never been to a reg con before so i'm a bit of a newb. >w<

i'm guessing it won't be as MASSIVE as expo is so hopefully a little more friendly and stuff...... or that's the impression i get.

If i don't find anyone to go with can i hang out with some people? >w<

Wooooo! Yeah! Mission complete! (Shall I add you to the epic Hetalia group of epic? We're all wearing them on the suuunday. ^_^ )

Oh...and Hexi:

What are the actual dates?: It is the same weekend as the oct expo, so thats Friday 23rd october - sunday 25th october. ^_^
I know it's the Park Inn hotel but where is it?: Northampton!
Was it really as awesome as people have been saying it was last year?: YES! I have been to quite a few cons and it was my fave so far! ^_^ Hopefully this year will be just as good!
Is the payment for the entire weekend, or can i just pay for 2 days etc etc: Almost all cons have the rule that you have to pay for all the 3 days, and I presume that fuyucon will be the same!

If i don't find anyone to go with can i hang out with some people?: Almost everyone is very friendly at cons so you can easily meet new people to hang around with there! (Otherwise chat on the forums beforehand ect, also I'm always available to adopt new congoers. XDD)

And yup cons are much smaller than expos so they're much more social. ^_^

THERE! O.O COME TO FUYU! 8D

>< thanks.

i found the dates out almost seconds after i posted that and forgot to change it. XD

i know it's in northampton, i meant where, cause the website is being useless and hasn't got any info up. i know it's a long ways away but still.
i am a fairly experienced expo goer so i know the friendly thing but sometimes it's awkward and people are like "sure you can join our group whoareyou?"

i'm just glad they're over the same few days cause otherwise i'd want to do both. XD

looking forward to it nao! ><

Special-pleb, Saz13 and I are going and we're con newbies too lol! Hang out with uuuuus xD
We could actually have a proper conversation as well rather than a "O HAI *takes photo* BAI!" like at expo where it's too hectic for a proper conversation X_x;

YAY!
yeah it really does suck. especially cause we always catch each other when we're going in different directions too. XD
I've asked a cosplaying friend if she wants to come so we can share the room cost and stuff so that'll hopefully work out. ^^
plus with this i guess you'll be able to meet and chat with the same people over the weekend so you can make friends better. ><

Depends...just keep an eye on the members list...I havent bought my tickets yet cause at the moment there's still lots of places - but i'm pretty sure people will start buying them - especcially after aya which is in august, so just keep an eye on the list to make sure they dont sell out! I might buy mine pretty soon...


01 May 2009 - 15:1213750
Whoa lots went on in this thread whilst I was away in examination-clash-of-hellsville ^^'

To people in the Hellsing Masquerade Group: The masquerade, if it's set up in the main hall like it was at Kita, is very awkward to get too many people on the stage. I'm trying to choreograph the FFIX group properly so there are no casualties/people can't see one person's costume/people falling into audience down the catwalk etc. Be mindful with your big cannon Seras(s)!!

To SephNoir: I was already planning to make that gorgeous red costume from X3 anyway, so perhaps I will bump it up my schedule ^^ I would wear it normally anyway so it would be no skin off my nose! Just call me Ms. Grey... We forget she ever married Scott XD (Remind me a bit closer to the date as well otherwise I might forget O__O And I couldn't live with myself then ><

Millenia: Count me in for Star Ocean shoot then!! Nel rocked my socks! (Just remind me closer to the date O__O.. I say that too much.)

PKNIVES and Moonlily: Seems Axis Powers Hetalia is popular recently, your group will be massive!

Hexi: Don't worry, it's about a five minute walk downhill from the coach station so it's easy to find, just walk downhill down the main road!

With regard to buying tickets:: I'd say it's always best to do everything as soon as possible. I'm paid up and ready to go minus the accomodation (which I also say it's best to do asap). This is basically because cons are sought after and you don't want to forget about it or put it off too long and then when you get back to it suddenly it's filled up. I'd say do it when you have to money/chance ^^

What does everyone think about the first choice of guests for fuyucon panels/lectures?

Akemi Solloway
Akemi is the daughter of an old samurai family and grew up immersed in the traditional arts and culture of Japan. Her name in Japanese means, “Bright and Beautiful.”
In addition to her university education, she attended the Tchiyoda Gakuin Finishing School, where she formally studied Occidental and Oriental etiquette.
She is a lecturer and consultant of Japanese culture, and leads study tours to Japan each spring and autumn. She is active in the worlds of business, diplomacy, education and the arts, where she strives to combine traditional beliefs, such as Bushido, with the best of modern technology and ideas.
In her presenting and consulting, she aims to promote awareness and appreciation of authentic Japanese culture in an accessible and enjoyable manner.


Helen Mcarthy

Helen has written three new books in the past two years. She’s also curated and presented two film seasons devoted to Osamu Tezuka, one commemorating the 80th anniversary of his birth in 2008 and one for the 20th anniversary of his death in 2009.
Her third successful lecture series on anime runs until June 2009 at London’s Barbican Centre, with a short season focused on Studio Gonzo in April.
Helen’s published work includes The Anime Encyclopedia, Hayao Miyazaki: Master of Japanese Animation, 500 Manga Heroes and Villains, and 500 Essential Anime You Must Own. Ilex Press will release her latest work, Manga Cross-Stitch, in May 2009, and a further book in October 2009.

Steve Kyte
Steve Kyte is working on covers for further THUNDERBIRDS novels from US publishers FTL. This year he’s also provided cartoons and a cover for Jonathan Clements’ essay collection Schoolgirl Milky Crisis, published by Titan Books. (Clements describes him as “my favourite artist”.)
Steve’s artwork has appeared in The Anime Encyclopedia, The Dorama Encyclopedia and The Target Book, as well as on book covers, in comics, and in fantasy novels such as the Broken Sky series.

I know there might be a change to the lineup and some additions but I cant help feeling slightly...indifferent.

any thoughts?

I think you already know my thoughts on the "guests" for FuyuCon already. Personally I don't go to a convention for guests, but KitaCon's lineup (albeit bless Laura Bailey and Travis Willingham they missed their flight >__<, even just with Chris Patton (he really added to the convention experience for me), was immense and much enjoyable.

Akemi Solloway is a convention staple these days, I've heard good things about her lectures/talks/panels/etc but I probably won't be going to her lectures or will probably just look in on one if there is one that particularly interests me. Personally I think my head would explode trying to learn serious educations things within the convention atmosphere, but that's just me.

Helen Mcarthy I probably wouldn't bat an eyelid about. I have published poetry, but I don't attend poetry conventions as a guest, so I don't feel the need to meet her. I guess it would be interesting to hear how she got into writing about manga and presenting classic manga and anime and why she chose Tezuka and Miyazaki out of everyone (probably because they're big names), but in honesty I wouldn't be bothered if she does or doesn't show up.

Steve Kyte... Well there can't be any more disinterest for a guest than this I think. I appreciate what he does, but none of it amounts to anything that I admire or want to know more about.

I won't be attending the guest panel.

I shall probably ignore the event of guests there completely because FuyuCon proves to be more of a "WHEY COSPLAY FRIENDS LETS PARTY" convention to me, I look forward to seeing my friends there more than anything else, plus there will be some awesome costumes there for me to look at. Guests are never high on my list of priorities anyway, though I think FuyuCon could have poured a bit more budget/love/effort into getting guests... I guess it's hard ><

/Joining the thread a bit late P:

Yay Fuyu~ I just registered myself yesterday, so its now official that Im going 8D (Which is a yay for me.)
I have quite a long cosplay-list for this convention. D:
So .. Here goes.

Friday: Professor Chaos (South Park)
Saturday: Suu (Clover)
Sunday+cosplay ball: Denmark (Hetalia: Axis Powers)
Omake: Tsumugi (K-ON! Dont Say Lazy~)
FuyuCon rock night: Girugamesh kid (Sakuracon commercial)
A small part of saturday: Bridget (Guilty Gear)
- Im borrowing Bridget from UnaSpi. :x I've been wanting to crossplay him for so long now. I'll be wearing it for a little bit saturday, to take some pictures.

As for the guests..
I have to say I dont go to cons for the guests that will be attending. And I actually dont know any of the guests announced so far. <_<
They all sound interesting though, so I might check out their panels/lecturings. Time will show. ;D

No matter what, Fuyucon is looking like a great convention so far.

Ok, either Alucard or Herr Major will be making an appearance...which one though!? >_<

Might have to revive Alucard for the sole reason that Baskerville is getting hungry...

Fuyucon looks like it's gonna be good ^^

Not too happy about the size restrictions for weapons though.
It means I cant have my 6 foot paintbrush
=[
