There are a lot of us out there who think Final Fantasy VII was the best video game ever made. And there are a ton of us who love Advent Children, and cosplay it. Now I had been apart of a group, it ended up falling apart thanks to improper organization. If you're interested in cosplaying Advent Children? You've come to the right place. I, haldir_whore have began to organize a group to premiere next year or perhaps the year after. Depends on how fast people join up, get their things done. You know how it is. Rememeber. This is ADVENT CHILDREN cosplay. Not FFVII cosplay.
This is a drama, childish, bitch and obnoxious free community. As for who can join? This community has open membership. Even if your character ends up being taken in the group, or you cosplay other parts of Final Fantasy, or AC.. that doesn't mean you can't join. Show off your stuff, and just have fun with everyone! The whole point of this is to have fun. I refuse to deal with elitism and rude attitudes. They are not allowed here. And if you are the cause of drama, or I sense it brewing in any way? I don't care if you're just a member of the community or a member of the cosplay group itself, I'll kick you out so fast it will make your head spin. I'm not the leader, persay. I'm the organizer, the maintainer. But bullshit? Is not allowed here.
Now conventions haven't been chosen as of yet since this group is brand new, but you must be able to attend at least one of the group's planned conventions. I imagine it'll be six months to a year for this group to fully gets on its feet. So it's not like I'm saying hey it's September, we're going to a con this month. We'll have plenty of time to plan, and so will you. :)
Your costume doesn't have to be made by you, but it would be nice if it was. And if you need assistance in sewing there are plenty of places to go. Including.. TA DA!.. the fellow members of the community! I want us all to be a group of close friends. Not just strangers on LJ who are gonna room together at our debut.
I, as the other members of the community would like to see some cosplay pictures and just pics of you in general! Tell us a little about yourself! Let us know what yur like! Like I said, we wanna know about you.
Also, an official way of contacting you is needed. For planning purposes, and in cases of emergencies. Cell numbers are acceptable.. just. A way of contacting you if needed. Everything will remain private, trust me. But we need a legit way of contacting you. Once yur accepted I'll give you my contact info as well, and it'll be done thru email to keep it all hush hush.
Please fill out the following application, and post it in the community itself. I'll contact you via email..firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll comment in return whether or not you're approved, etc. Now, some of you are already in the group and have been approved. But I'd like you to fill out the application anyway, as a sort of introductory post. Got it? I know some of it might seem redundant especially if you're in one of my other groups but, it's a necessity. Please promote the community in your LJ, if you become a member, and anywhere you can.
Full Name: Nicknames: Age: Emails: Phone numbers: ? ...Leave this out until you receive a contact letter from me based on approval. And if I have them already, well there's no point to giving them to me again. Unless you feel safe in a friends lock and give the number here anyway. Interested character: ..please read the character list on who is taken and who isn't, unless you're already approved. What conventions have you attended in the past? What costumes have you made, accessories, etc.? What got you interested in cosplay and FFVII/Advent Children in the first place? And the character you wish to be? Why do you wish to be that person so much? And of course: Pictures please. Of costumes and yourself if you'd like.
