I agree, Yes it is immensely difficult to choreograph something like this without being able to rehearse. And to squeeze a skit down into 3 mins is also harder than people think. (Have been trying to edit my Zatanna performance down for Sat) And also I was thinking about the logistics of having 12 people on stage at the same time it would be difficult to do some of the action without someones backs to the audience.


Would you mind then if I do Galaxia as a solo entry? That would release more time for the Eternals to pose/go through some power up moves etc. Especially if I could get placed in the slot imediately after the Eternals group, which would still keep the Sailor Moon theme going. I think the continuity would work really well especially for those who know the series' conclusion.

As I mentioned before I have been offered an Expert place for Galaxia cuz I got an application off early. I have put a short Galaxia routine together and I would reeeeeally like to perform it cuz it goes really nicely with a short music track I edited together.. ("It's the final hour - it's the bitter end" ) - incl brandishing that huge sword of doom. (I think someone could get hurt if I tried this with so many people on stage together - the sword is huge and solid!
If you're ok with this plan I will confirm to the guys I will be using my Expert slot. But I did say that I would be your Galaxia last year when you asked me, and I won't let my friends down, so if you desperately still want me to be in the Eternals line up I will drop my own Expert slot. Your friendship is more important to me.

Ok, I'm staying with the group then. Looks like we shall need to rehearse together on Sunday if we want to look slick up there. I guess the vid will give me a good idea how the walk through will run.

Do you have the music planned yet? I wanted to use the music track on this amv for my walk on part cuz it fits the mood for Galaxia so well (except I edited the verses out so it plays as just the chorus "don't you realise etc" and the instrumentation parts .) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHQHEA6QGBw
I just learned how to edit/ merge / fade etc music tracks together and save in MP3 format. So if you want I can edit together a 3 min audio track containing more than one music track. eg so we could have Sailor Moon Stars theme music for the Eternals walk through then merging into 'The final hour' for my walk on part, merging into Galaxia's locket music for a group bow and exit..
(the audio editing software can pull things straight off the int, eg amv's, anime episodes on youtube, etc.)
We have until 17/10/09 to submit the audio track.

we thought about using this and i know a couple other people agreed to using this too:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65ZFyzhfgbI Tatu - all about us but yeh we wanted to get everyone to meet up and rehearse before masquerade and the video will totally help!! well hopefully anyhow XD

the few people ive talked to about this agreed moon theme sucked for walk on bits but if your desperate to use that song we could work away or something. Just me and limegreenjelly made a few timing parts on the all about us song which is at the beginning of it

Actually I like your track - it fits pefectly with the Eternals and there is also a feeling of impending confrontation (with Galaxia) So yeah I'm happy to use this track.
some questions about the music though..
1) Do you have the Tatu track on an album already or would you like me to capture that amv version off youtube? (I can edit the beginning to leave out the car door etc so it just starts where the music starts to play)
2) Did you plan for me to come on at the sound of the gunshot? If so I think it is dramatic but the sound is unmistakably a gunshot, which works great in the Tatu amv but I think I'd preferr explosive thunder to announce the arrival of Galaxia. I could easily replace the gunshot sound and insert an explosive thunder sound instead, and otherwise leave the soundtrack as it is. (I found some free thunder soundbites on int)
3) One last worry..The gunshot part comes in fairly late into the 3 min track. Do you think the Eternals can fill the run up time with their transformations? If no I can shorten the whole track down to whatever you like.
I can e-mail you edited versions so you can preview and we can tweak.


05 Oct 2009 - 14:1620547
i got the album so dont worry no gun shot sound XD

didnt realize there was a gun shot in the video either lols!

we'll have a look see on the practice run on sunday and see what timing if you wanna add a thunderbolt sound to the original song if you like?

Yeah there is a censored version of the amv and the full uncensored version - which includes that gunshot scene.

As long as we can time it so that everybody has come on and done their transformation moves I like the idea of a thunderbolt breaking in to announce the arrival of trouble (Galaxia). But I haven't seen your vid yet so I don't know what point you planned my part. I look forward to seeing what you filmed.


06 Oct 2009 - 08:5520566
Ok I just sent an email to your hotmail add with an edited music track including the added thunder break attatched.

The whole track can be shortened if we need to..


If it gets through let me know if you like the idea. (I know sometimes large files get bounced back. I still don't know how to zip stuff up!)


09 Oct 2009 - 20:3420741
Right guyz. Ive ordered my gloves, fabric and boots (thank you to EVERYONE who gave me links and what not) so should be ok. if anyone has a chibimoon wig i could borrow in case my stuff dont turn up i would be eternaly greatful....if not then i will have to work something out ^^;

and im sorry if im being stuiped but what will i be doing in our masq entery...Also thank you Lime for the advice on the accessories!


10 Oct 2009 - 22:2420767
We are doing a video tomorrow stating where people will be and what they are doing, angel has already said to research all attacks and transformation poses as these are needed within the masquerade entry....

Chibi moon is walking on with sailor moon and will be by her side for most of the skit except for a small part... not a problem on the accessories my pleasure

Thankyou Ranma 1/2 for doing that for us, we will take alook on it tomorrow and see what is going where with the music

@ Limegreenjelly - You're welcome. ^_^
I also sent a 3 min edit version of the track to the masquerade organisers, because the cutoff date for getting music in had arrived.

I got an e-mail back: It is possible that we might not get a full 3 mins on stage...I'm still waiting to hear back exactly what the score is re time we will be allowed. I will let you know here as soon as I hear anything new.


11 Oct 2009 - 16:3420822
hey steve thats why we opted for the walk on because we couldnt cover 3 whole minutes! and its impossible to chorograph in such little time thats why we've only sorted out poses and walks and group line up in time to the music but not the full track.

we are not videoing today due to weather ^^;; but we are going to do it on tuesday in my studio at uni.

and Limegreenjelly will post up the notes explaining a briefing of the ideas later on

no no, possibly the scan went abit wrong when I was scanning it, I used the same pencil crayons for the dots, I changed neptune's colour at some point aswell as it wasnt very distiguishable...

I hope you won't be offended, but I'm not keen on 4,5 and 6.

I'd preferr to stick with the Sailor Moon saga story line. Galaxia is the legendary Sailor Senshi - unbeatable in the whole Galaxy! Her only weakness is her own light of hope which she sent away ..(Chibi), and Sailor Moon uses this to rescue her not defeat her.

C'mon guys, can we do a SM tribute instead?

With everyone on stage, and the theme of the music track "It's all about us" ie friends standing together - it makes more sense for the plot to develop more like..
same floor plan but,
(3) Galaxia arrives on stage, ready for battle, at point(A) and faces the Senshi. All Senshi stand in unison and combine their attack energys all together at Galaxia in one powerfull attatck (using everyones learned attatck poses). Galaxia tries to fend off the attack in her usual way, using her palm, but the combined attack is stronger than she expected and she is hurt though not defeated by it. Infuriated she throws back deadly power at the inner Senshi (my hand movement), decimating all three in one swoop. Inner Senshi dramatise pain from Galaxia's energy attack, and crouch down on one knee, imobilised.
Outer Senshi look shocked and they are next to recieve Galaxia's swift and deadly force in the same manner. Outer Senshi dramatise pain, as they too are defeated.

(4)Galaxia now advances to point B
Chibi is now the last defender of Sailor Moon, and she quickly stands in front of Sailor Moon to protect her from Galaxia. (Chibi pose)

For a special attack Galaxia draws her sword and after powering up she plunges the sword into the ground dramatically (sword trick I can do). The attack reaches Chibi. She is overpowered and hurt badly. Sailor Moon catches her as she slumps into her arms. Sailor Moon gently lays Chibi to the floor. Mad that even little Chibi has been hurt Sailor Moon finally takes up her Sword (which has been placed on the stage sometime during the walk on) and poses resolutely waiting to face Galaxia. They meet at point (C), and turn, standing side on to the judges their swords clash and lock above their heads. Staring into each others eyes Galaxia smiles menacingly, whilst Sailor Moon shows fierce determination on her face as she battles to control all her emotions within.
- Music ends! -
(how will the story end??..Cliffhanger!)

Whole group then quickly form a line across main stage and take a bow. Exit


13 Oct 2009 - 02:4720989
that is by far an awesome idea but sadly that we gotta remember we cant do a performance as such. We are labelled as a walk on and getting all that done would be too much work to practice especially with time and stuff.

As I know a few members of the group have other things running on the day to from photoshoots to set up or do.

we can alter aspects of the walk on and such but we gotta remember we cannot be on stage for as long as a performance slot would get.

also we did this all based on the manga as everybody is wearing the manga based costumes. As working with the anime is hell work as me and Limegreenjelly discovered...seriously caused so much havoc we ended up going "to the manga!" So we tried our best to go with basics of the manga. (even researched which scouts died first)


13 Oct 2009 - 14:3821009
I just don't like the idea "Galaxia falls down defeated"
Is that in the manga? (Hasn't read the manga)
I wanted to cosplay her as the ultimate badass Queen of the Galaxy.. an unstoppable force. That's why I love the conclusion of the SM story - How can you beat the unbeatable? ..There is a way, but the answer is surprising...

If you're worried about time/rehearsal how about a shortened down version of the current briefing, eg

(3) Galaxia walks to (A) and pose
Galaxia swings sword to inner Senshi. Inner Senshi drops one by one.
Galaxia does the same to outer Senshi.
Chibi now walks to point B, Galaxia swings sword and Chibi drops to floor.

Galaxia walks to point C and poses.

(4) Sailor Moon rushes to Chibi who is lying at point (B). Then she takes up her sword and turns to face Galaxia.

(5)Sailor Moon and Galaxia walk towards each other, meet centre of catwalk, turn side on and lock swords above their heads. Pose like this for a mo.
- music ends -
(6) All get up and quickly form a straight line across the main stage,
take a bow (or evil/cheesy poses if you want),
Exit.


21 Oct 2009 - 14:0021269
O HAI GAIZ!

@Ranma - Yes, in the manga, after turning the other Eternals evil and a battle (my memory is slightly vague, I need to re-read the manga) Galaxia is defeated by Eternal Moon.

General Babbling:
I'm just interjecting here because well - Expo is in three days and well its too late to rejig this walk on (because, basically this is just a walk on to specific music. Not a performance).

So - as everything has been arranged and made out and set out by Aiko and LimeGreenJelly I think we should really just stick to the plans already made.

I know this may not be especially pleasing to you Ranma, because you wanted to be the ultimate badass, but due to C:Island going down it kind of put a stopper in further discussions regarding redoing the walk on. For ease I think its best if it stays as it.

We'll be queuing up for 45 minutes or longer, so things can be discussed then and last minute changes can be made, like orders and such. But fundamentally things need to stay the way they are so there's no more confusion than necessary.

~ Silver

hello there senshi inner and outer and Galaxia

I think it is wise to keep things the way, however like silver said we can re-jig things when we all get together on the sunday

The meeting place is 1 o clock at the COSPLAY DESK near the masquerading area

This is to have a photoshoot and to run through the masquerade before the big thing..
Thankyou

Uhm, that's going to be a bit difficult for me.

I have a panel running from 12.45 to 1.15, and then I'm doing a paid photoshoot at 1.30 to 2pm. .___.

okies, do you know roughly what you need to do? we can run through changes in the line with you if thats okies with you? it should be just small changes..

just a quick update: -

mars cannot make the group due to medical reasons and so venus may also be out so .. these are the emergency plans: -

NO venus: - neptune or an outer senshi goes on the inner side

with venus: - Saturn is going down alone (with only weapon) and jupiter will go down with middle outer senshi
