Hey, I'm planning on signing up for the Kamoricon Idol but I just have on quick question. In the rules it says we can "maybe" us english translations of songs. Is "maybe" a yes or a no? Does it depend what song?

I'd also like to know how you'd go about getting rid of the vocals on a song. Do you need a special program?

I'm going to be entering but.. I can' seem to find a short enough osng for the auditions that was actually released on cd. I asked on the official forum and have yet to get a response...

Does anyone know if it's alright to use a karaoke that has been created by fans of the show? I'm not sure, because of the no editing rule.

I'm not exactly sure about the audition stage, but for the contest itself you can't....

But, if you want, what they will do is play the selected song till the end of the time limit, and fade it out from there. That's also another option. :D



So instead of singing Yasashii Yoake, since I know for a fact I won't have it completely memorized in a week....-_-;;

Does anyone here know a song called Shining Star by Nami Tamaki? I'll most likely be singing that, since I already know it and it's right in my range and voice style. *shifty eyes*

EDIT: Or, I'll be singing Sanctuary by Nami Tamaki as well, the opening to Kiba. <.<...>.>.....

I know both of those Nami Tamaki songs! Beware, if I see you, I will likely ask to glomp you... Especially if you're in Yami Yugi cosplay...

I decided to not enter this year. Too much hassle/too long for my first con Karaoke contest. I'm going to try the Sakura-con contest next year instead. You don't have to do as much..

XD Well, I'll be at both karaoke audition and the contests....and does anyone know why the contests are scheduled at the same time this year? o.O;; They're usually at either different times on the same day or on completely different days. And Idol's usually the first contest up.

:P I'm most likely going to be in my Shuichi cosplay-- it's the cosplay that I feel the most comfortable in. Ironic, isn't it? :P (Especially since he's a singer..) Yea, I'm unfortunately only being Yami Yugi for the YGO photoshoot. Since I was asked by several of the people in it.......

So what do you think, since you know both? Sanctuary or Shining star? *shifty eyes* *is very indecisive*
-Shu

Edit: @@Sapphira-- Just for ya, I'll cosplay Yami Yugi. ^_^ But I won't have my hair done up though, I won't have enough time that day

:D

Well then, I'l have to go see the photoshoot and glomp you there. :)
As for which song, it depends on the voice you have.. If you have a deeper voice, go with Sanctuary, if you have a brighter, happier voice, go with Shining Star.

See, that's the thing. My voice style can do both of those. It's very much like Nami-chan's......<.<....>.>........

I'll most likely sing Shining Star, since I've gotten requests from several of my other friends to do that while being Yami. *rolls eyes*

:D Well, I'll be in the contest. And since both contests are back-to-back this year, (why the hell did they do that? o_0) easy enough of a determined time. And I'll be pretty hard to miss-- considering now I have a very good chance of actually having the hair done. (I'll probably get a wig and style it)

And....I just thought of the strangest comment I think I can come up with in a while.....

"Yami, the amazing dancing ferret!" @_@ I'm done now...

*laughs* Great, now I may end up associating Yami with Draco Malfoy....(Dancing ferret, bouncing ferret, no difference right? Would Yuugi's sugar-highness carry over to Yami?)

Very true.. *begins contemplating a Sugar-high Pharoah Atemu.. or just normal Yami*
(Yuugi, atleast in most fanfictions, has a very low sugar tolerance.... Don't let him eat sugar!)

(Just normal Yami.....) Yea, I can imagine Yuugi not being very resistant to sugary substances. I can't imagine Yami having any kind of resistance at all, it's been 5,000 years after all.....

And I've been meaning to say, love your icon. :D

A sugar-high Yami.....Dear Kami............(May be I shouldn't mention that one of the few things that gets me hyper is orange ramune....?).........<.<......>.>........

Orange Ramune huh? I may have to bring you a bottle..(I'll be stopping by Uwajimayas in Seattle on my way to the con..)

Bakura looked adorable in this icon, so I had to use it..(That and I can't seem to fin d a good Yami icon..)

And yes, the 5,000 years without sugar may have taken a toll on his resistance....

Are you going to be wearing a Sennen Puzzle with your cosplay?(Good ones are suprisingly hard to find!)

Yep, I am indeed going to have a Sennen Puzzle on me. I'm making it last minute this week >.<;; but it should still look ok.

And besides, Yami isn't Yami without a Puzzle. :D

And argh, I am still so pissed at qqcosplay for not responding to my requests for an invoice on a Pharaoh Atemu costume. Otherwise I wouldn't have this problem. *sigh*

You're going to be dropping by Uwajiamaya? Heh, I live about ten min. away from there. :D

See you at con,

Because my dad now has a kidney stone.. Hopefully it'll pass before the con. If not he says that he'll drive me down, and then just stay in the hotel room during the con..*which would make me feel bad*

Heh, my cosplays had still been in the front room in garbage bags from when I dropped them coming in from the Sakura-con in March. .. They've now been washed, and are waiting for repairs and then re-packing...
