Tales Time 2013!

Never to early to start planning your Otakon insanity! This is mostly copy pasted from my post last year so obviously everything is still up for discussion etc.

Please add your input for times, locations, pose ideas etc. We worked off a shot list to give every game equal representation, then had a few larger groups, then let people use the space to do as they like. I think it was well received and kept things moving along. FYI I now have a small megaphone and intend to use it, aw yeaaa. Actually, I'm going to let Lady Arieta do the talking

Up for discussion but pretty much tradition:
Time: 4pm
Days: Friday and Saturday
Location(s): Just including last year's locations for reference - suggestions welcome!
- Friday: Last year it was held Escalators in the fountain room
- Saturday: Indoor fountains (like 50 feet away from Friday's location)

If you are new to the Tales gatherings, we have always had a Friday and Saturday shoot in case people could not attend one day and 4pm seems to work well for most. Either day has a strong showing as well.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ATTEND. JUST SHOW UP!!

You two were great last year. I'm glad you're doing it again! I've always enjoyed it being at 4pm around the indoor fountains. It's pretty enough without us going outside and suffering from the heat.

I'm definitely going to cosplay Tales of Xillia 2 Leia this year. Other past Tales costumes are up in the air as to whether I want to change into them again/what group cosplays I end up doing.

whoopwhoop, get hype

Bwa! Well! XD I didn't even know this was made until just now lol! Okay well...same deal as last time...

*shuffles through papers, forums, posts what not*

There's really not much else for me to say. You guys know the deal and drill. If you think you're coming as a character, just post it here and I'll update this list! If its in question let me know and I'll add a little (?) next to it. Keep it clean, clear and if I didn't see your post do point it out since I'm assuming there will be loads of it sooner or later that I'll need to go through. If you have friends coming as well and they don't have a CosCom account, include them in your post and I'll put them next to your name on the list.

Last year went pretty well if I do say so myself. Everybody was clean, acting appropriate, some even in character (Kudos to everybody who was able to STAY in character ) Was fun XD, but we'll probably have a megaphone this time around ^^;. You are more than welcome to suggest poses to us here or on the spot. We are open to ideas so as long as they are APPROPRIATE. Keep in mind, there are children around so please keep it PG-13. Nobody did anything R rated last year so that's good. Keep it that way.

I don't know if I'm going to go to Otakon as Rita Mordio again, or if I'm going to go as something different. Most likely, either way I'll still drop by as Rita just for the photoshoots, or something. :')

I'll definitely be at Otakon but not entirely sure which character. Possibly Farah, but I dunno if I wanna wear the long sleeves & dress in August. Still plenty of time to decide whom to bring and will check back in too see which games are getting representation since it leads to better photo ops.

Symphonia and Abyss are always pretty popular. I believe Graces grew a bit in popularity since it's the most recent release. I wouldn't be surprised if Xillia's popularity grows because the English version is being released this year. (Hopefully soon.)

If I get to go I'll bring some variant of Judith. Trying Glamorous Maid again, we'll see how that goes.

Also I'll bring back Grune if any other Legendias want to show up. I have to redo her urn, and the wig needs to be touched up so I probably won't bother otherwise.
