Public post for my bros who don't have my on LJ for whatever reason :/

Here we go, post for the playing cards 'cuz I got Asta back into Hetalia and the both of us are planners, and like to do things super in advance.

So don't mind me if I have a number of entries in the near future regarding groups for next years cons already. I can tell you right now, most of those entries will probably be Hetalia cosplay posts as well. 'Cuz I can't quit Hetalia, even if I tried.

Open to pretty much all you bros, if you're going to AnimeNEXT, and still dig the Hetalias. Or at the very least, we can put up with each other. haha XDDDDDDDD

So about 150 of you on my f-list please feel free to ignore this. I just need some place I can post this publicly, and organized at the same time Something Tumblr, and facebook both don't offer. Whoops?

Now accepting applications for the AnimeNEXT MUN Panel.
If you haven't done so yet, please Like the facebook page for future updates regarding this panel.

No word on time or place yet people. We're hoping Saturday afternoon, but we'll have to see how that plays out.

You may apply for any character open, and may fill out multiple applications for as many different characters as you want. Decisions are based on who is the best applicant for the character, and it is NOT being given out on a first come first serve basis. This gives a better chance of the right man getting the job, and limits playing favorites between people.

We are looking out to fill up the Allies and Axis, and any canon characters in the security council for the 2011 year before other nations.

You may apply for any characters besides them as well, but Allies, Axis and Security Council members get priority pick. as we limit the cast list a limit to around 15 people give or take 2 or 3 upon our discretion.

There are some taken characters at this point however:
America - Monty
Belarus - Ginny
China - Laura
England - Megan
France - Kate
Italy (North) - Maura

Everyone else not listed is fair game.

To apply leave a comment with the following information:

Your Name: [Fill out your name here]
Character Name: [Fill out the character name you are applying for here]
Character Tidbit: [Please fill out a brief synopsis of your interpretation to the character you are applying for. Do not use any online profiles already out there. This must be YOUR own.]

Taking up leadership, this is what I do apparently. Not that me running this again for CPAC (April 10, 2011) should be any surprise. This time around my fellow mods shall be: Ari/ [livejournal.com profile] phantomthief, and Mandy/ [livejournal.com profile] sagekiller.

We are looking out to fill up the Allies and Axis before other nations. You may apply for it, but characters from either the Allies and Axis will get priority on selecting. We're making the cast list a limit to about 15 people give or take 2 or 3 upon our discretion. CPAC doesn't have huge rooms, so we can't have too many people on panel or it will take away from audience seating.

We will be doing our best to run this like an actual MUN, while still keeping the zaniness of Hetalia and their characters intact. If you're familiar with how the Otakon panel presented by Funimation and ACP then you know what I'm talking about, and how we aim to run this panel.

Okey, so I was talking about Sengoku Basara cosplay for Otakon with Jenna, Jacqui, and Meggie, so here we go. Sengoku Basara 'cuz we fucking love manly men who can defy all the laws of science and physics.

We didn't decide on what outfits to go with, but I know Gakuen was thrown up in the air, but whoever is interested in joining should throw in their two cents otherwise right now it's looking like Gakuen. Hi Guys. We're going with Gakuen.

Jacqui, just let me know if you wanna go with Keiji or Kasuga when you decide. In the mean time I suppose someone can just reserve those characters until Jacqui makes her decision. Kasuga. YAY~ <3

3. I will reply to your comment with a question; answer it honestly. I will then ask you another question, and this will continue until Sunday night/Monday morning.

4. Please come check back every so often to see if I have asked you a new question. The game is no fun if you leave it halfway!

5. On Monday, February 14th, a new entry will go up announcing the "winner" of the game; i.e., the person who I would most want to go out on a date with based upon the answers to the questions I've asked.

6. There is no prize for "winning". This game is all in good fun, and no one should take it seriously. Just be honest and enjoy yourselves!

7. Please note that this entry is not f-locked and is left public. If there is something I ask which you would rather not answer, you can pass the question. Do not feel obliged to say anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.

Hey guys, here to advertise a shoot again for you all. This one won't be for a while, so don't worry about rushing to get anything done if you don't have something already, though most of you should have something already since the shoot we're planning on is HetaOni, which means awesome regular military uniforms.

This shoot will take place in the late summer, I'm talking like after Otakon, so sometime in August, so you have over 6 months to finish a cosplay if you want to join in on this. And as for location of the shoot, it hasn't be finalized yet, but it will definitely take place somewhere in the NJ/ NY/ PA area.

I'll steal the basic synpopsis of HetaOni from Hetalia's Shout Wikia yet again:

The 17-part series(ongoing) is based off of the Japanese horror game Ao Oni Jikkyou, replacing the canon characters with Hetalia characters. It originated on Nico Nico Douga by Tomoyoshi, entirely in Japanese, before being translated on YouTube by SotetAG.

The series starts off with the Axis Powers and Prussia after a World Conference Meeting, standing in front of a supposedly "haunted" mansion. They decide to go inside and explore. Soon they are interrupted when a plate breaks and Japan goes to investigate, but comes back to find the others have disappeared. After alien attacks and various other strange happenings, the Allies, and Canada, also arrive at the mansion, becoming locked in as well. Characters suddenly disappear and a time paradox is revealed. Eventually other characters, such as South Italy and Belarus, arrive as well.

If you're interested on watching up on HetaOni, and getting to know it's fanbase more I have started writing up a guide to HetaOni which thus far only features links, but later will include a better description of the story, characters, etc. I'll let everyone know when that post is finished.

HetaOni features the America, England, France, China, Russia, Canada, Italy, Japan, Germany, Prussia, and later on, Spain, and Romano. But at some point even if they don't get speaking roles, virtually the entire Hetalia cast does get some screen time, so this can become a pretty huge group if we want it to be. Obviously, we'll feature the main 12 characters more so than the others.

We'll be reenacting scenes from the RPG, so that means, bro fisting, deaths, fights, smashing clocks, and blood. lots of blood So while it's not necessary to watch any of HetaOni to join this shoot, it would be in your better interest to watch at least part of it, so you can have a vague idea of what's going on.

Cast List
**Once again this list is not limited to these characters listed alone. Feel free to join in as any Hetalia character, but we would prefer to fill up this list before taking on too many extras**

Who doesn't love groups? I sure love groups, and I know I was talking to a few friends about doing Children's Day for Fanime, so I figured I would make the official post for it all. So for you guys going to Fanime, and want to join in on the Children's Day fun-ness just leave a comment~ <3

Gonna attempt an Angel Beats group yet again 'cuz Angel Beats is always a lot of fun to cosplay, and due to various circumstances, the group didn't get to happen at NYAF, which makes me sad face every time.

So here we go again. Just leave a comment here saying if you want to claim anyone.

Gonna try to orchestrate a group this time based on the images being released on the upcoming Hetalia artbook for Katsucon and Fanime.

And I know there are a number of you guys not going to Katsu and/ or Fanime that I'm pretty sure might be interested in doing these outfits as well, so just leave a comment on this journal about wanting to do it, and we can figure out other cons as well.

I'm leaving [livejournal.com profile] antieden in charge of fabric matching, so I'll just update this journal again later with the fabric selection she comes up with later.

IDK why I am bothering. I know most likely people won't join, but whatever. I'll try anyway. This is just how much I love HetaQuest. As some of you know I have a real obsession with HetaQuest as of late, so already planning on cosplaying it for next year, I wanna see if I can get a few people to join in on the fun with me, so I won't be so lonely.

Not limited to the characters listed at all what so ever. HetaQuest encompasses most Hetalia characters, so that would be just way too much to list, so I kept it to main party members of the Feli Chapter and Alfred Chapter unless someone else said they would cosplay a character I didn't list already.

Don't be surprised if I make more group cosplay posts for the next little while

The Written Bullet point entry. I'll get some pics later when I find that god damn camera adapter that I have seem to have a lost somewhere in my room. TT^TT

☾ So lulz I was so smart and decided to stay up until 8 AM and watched Rush Hour 3. I did many thing in between obviously since movies don't last so long, but I just couldn't sleep. When it turned 8 I was like "GOD DAMN!" and forced myself to get in at least an hour or two of sleep.

☾ Took that lovely 2 hour nap, and rolled out of bed, and got ready.

☾ Left the house, and met up with Cat, Ari, Amanda, and a few other people at Penn Station.

☾ Arrived at Central Park where everyone was. A bit late, but better late than never.

☾ Introduced ourselves (the coordinators that is), gave a bit of a lecture, and proceeded to the shoot.

☾ Shoot went along swimmingly. The BFT got a bit inappropriate, but I suppose that's why they are the BFT.

☾ Now this is when we all chilled. Did random things. Joined in on the Flash Mob. I still don't full understand what it is, but I know it's dancing. lolz

☾ But right, take some pictures with Kat. Thanks so much again! <3

☾ uh... watch people get pictures taken?

☾ Chill times with [livejournal.com profile] bluucircles, Stef, Sam, and her friend who were Rev War!America. I never got her name. Herpa derp. Please apologize to her for me Amanda. >.>

☾ All good things must come to an end? We leave Hetalia Day early for some noms. Originally I was gonna go to Chinatown, but then everyone said they wanted to go to Alice Tea Cup cafe, so I was like "Lulz ok"

☾ We never got in since it was so small, and in the end ended up eating at Chipotle.

☾ You would think I would learn from last time I can't handle their food. Even mild is way too spicy for me. I was about to cry from how spicy it was. Sarah recorded the end of my eating and caught all my pain and suffering at its finest.

☾ Go to Kino. We stare at things. This is what we do every time we go. lolz

☾ Sit in Bryant Park for a while

☾ Separate. TT^TT

☾ Take a nap on the train ride home

☾ Home <3

And that was Hetalia Day. I hope I can get some pictures up soon. Kat should be making her post with all her lovely pics (some of which I posted to tumblr already) from today's events in the main comm. I'll link it when it's posted... and maybe other NYC Hetalia Day posts made. Maybe. lolz

Oh and I totally saw and talk to more people than this, but oh God so much people to name. Venus, Kat, Melissa, Helen, Maggie, Sarah, John, and Annemarie, just to name a few. I love you all to bits <3
