Oooooo~! I wanna meet up! I should be there.  It should be easy to spot me 'cus I'll be in a bright orange shirt, or have a red sheet on my head.  Who else is coming?  Are the cosplays something I could spot easily, because I'm awful at trying to find people XD

I'm going to be Temari on Saturday, and probably on and off the rest of the Con as well, depending upon how comfterable the outfit is. ^.^

If I go, I'm bringing Gaara. I'm going to NDK the same month, so I don't know if I'll make it to Kumori, but I'm really hoping to. I plan to have Gaara done by mid August. [/i]

*nod nod* I just have to figure out how to keep it alive on the plane ride. I have the same problem for NDK. I'm hoping my suitcase will be big enough when I expand it (I have one of thos like 4ft tall roller ones) that I can just pack it in there safely. It'd probably be too big for a carry-on I figure.

Two balloons and Paper Mache. Lots of paper mache. I wanted to use that crayola model clay stuff that air dries because it's so light, but it doesn't go very far at all and would have cost way too much. Not to mention, I wasn't too sure how durable it was anyway. Paper mache isn't too heavy anyway so it's okay.

That Crayola stuff is really expensive.  XD I made some stuff from it, and if falls apart really easy.  Good luck transporting the gourd, usually paper mache holds up pretty well.  At least I like to think...

Yes, it does. I mean seriously, have you ever watched someone try to beat a pinata? Not those store-bought ones either. We made pinatas when I was a little kid and basically, the only way we got it to really break (besides a couple little punctures) was to lay it on the gromp and stomp on it :) But maybe I was just a weird little kid. Thanks!! I think it should travel fine, as long as it fits in my suitcase.

XD I have this memory of my friend's birthday party.  It was recent, but she got a piniata as a joke.  We spent like.. an hour beating on it before we finally rabidly attacked it.

AHHH~! ;_; They're always grabbing for the candy.  You better hide it from the small children or they'll think it IS a piniata!  They're so violent.. just for the candy, too.  I remember when I was little it freaked me out when all my friends would fight for the candy.

Hmm.  It still freaks me out.  

Coincidentally I never got any candy out of piniatas...

I *alwase* got candy!  I shoved people out the way and was like "MINE!" I doubt they'll think it's a pinata. I hope not!! It doesn't look like one! At least.. Not to me. I should make a sign that says "NOT A PINATA" or something! :)

XD! You should wear the sign all the time at the con.  Hey! I could even meet you that way!

Although putting a sign on the gourd that says its not a piniata might make people try to treat it like one...

True true.. I could make the sign, and only pull it out if someone seemed confused!

At Fanime this year, there was a Gaara who had a sign that said "I'm Gaara. I eat babies" I was amused.

'I am Gaara, I will eat you' might actually be a better sign.  Eating babies won't disturb most con goers, they probably eat babies too. ^.^

I'm going to have to wear a sign that says 'Glomp me and risk castration' because of a few incidents at Sakura Con. ^.^;

Oh I'm sorry! I didn't like Sakura con too much when I went, it was a con that if I lived in the area, I'd probably go to, but I deffinitely wasn't doing the 12 hour drive to it again.

All con goers eat babies. Isn't that normal? *blinks*

Wait! What if a girl glomps you? *looks innocent* XD

I've actually had girls glomp me thinking I was a bishie.  I was in my Random Bishie #9 cosplay, so I wasn't that offended, but I think I'll wear a sign that says 'Don't glomp, the clows will eat you' in my bishie cosplay. ^.^

Heh, just wait until you see my Gaara-chan plushie! ^.^  I altered my regular Gaara-chan plushie, took off his gourd and sash, and made him a teddy bear and cloak.

Now he looks like chibi Gaara from when he was a kid, though I left the kanji on his forehead.  That's pretty permenant. ^.^

They are pricy and a bit hard to find.  They were only selling two at Sakura Con, and I got the first one.  I can't remember how much it cost though, it was expensive but a LOT less than $80.  It was probably $20-30, if I remember correctly. ^.^

Hopefully someone will be selling a Kakashi plushie at Kumori Con, there weren't any at Sakura Con. ;-;

If you start stalking me out of costume.... Then I'll be a little worried XD

I hope they have gaara plushies at Kumori or NDK. I want one so badly.

She's not on the internet right now, but as soon as I can figure it out, I'll let you know!.

I know she has a bunch of Naruto plushies..  Sasuke, Naruto, Lee, and I think Sakura...

AHA! But I have a forehead protector! ::clutches at::

XD My friend's dad tried to talk her into making one out of cardboard and aluminum foil.  Just thinking about that hurts.  

Anyway, I bought mine for $23.25, which I know is really expensive, but I'm so amused by it...  I wuvs it.  I wear it all the time while I'm out doing things.

I find it hillarious that you can wear the Naruto headband into nearly any real asian resteraunt in Western Washington and be recognized as a Konoha ninja. ^.^

I used to do it, wearing the headband around my neck Hinata style, but I keep forgetting it at home every time I go out.  No biggie, one of my friends has been wearing his every day for months now.  It's actually kinda disturbing. ^.^;

Card board and foil!? Wow... My mom's suggestion was at least aluminum flashing.

I'm probably going to wear my a lot when I get it. But here we don't have an asian store or anything like that. Probably the only people that would get it would be other naruto fans. :lol:

XD I had to explain it to my mom, she thought I was being crazier than normal.  There seems to be a lot of Naruto fans now, so I think a lot of people will understand.  I'm trying to get some black fishnet so I can be even more ninja-like, but my last outing was a failure.

I like sites with lots of random stuff.  They're amusing.  :D

I'm trying to find a site to host my webcomic, but I'm having problems.  I can't afford to pay for anything.  >< And Keenspace can't have my address and phone number!!! Grrr~!  XD And I need something that I don't have to use html with... I've studied some, but I'm still clueless.  I took a class intending on figuring stuff out, but we used Dreamweaver.  >< I don't have 500 or so dollars to buy a program!

...It was a nice program, though. :D
