A cry of one in desperate need.  
Ahem. I come before you lovely people today with an extremely important question. (Okay, not so important, more of OH-MY-GOD-LET-ME-NOT-BE-ALONE-AND-DESPERATE cry.)

I was wondering if any of you lovely ladies, gents and beans of all sizes:
A] Lived in Australia.
B] Lived in Queensland.
C] Are plannning on attending Supanova on the 9th and 10th of April (aka this Saturday and Sunday) at the Brisbane Showgrounds.
D] Considering cosplaying as a character from FMA.

Dear Someone-or-Another, may I not be alone! I don’t care if you get a piece of aluminium foil, stick it on your head with a piece of string and refer to yourself as Alphonse! I don’t care if you grab a potted-palm tree, stick a headband on it, whilst carting it around all day and calling it Envy. Hell, I don’t even care if you get your bathrobe and claim to be Edward. COME. COSPLAY. LET ME REVEL IN YOUR PRESENCE.

Yes-yes-yes, I know there is another one in Sydney later this year, but face it. You come here and there so much less pollution; we have BIG shopping centres; the tourists don’t try to get you drunk and drag you into coffee clubs, and more importantly, WE LOVE EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU IN WAYS THAT ARE BOTH ILLEGAL AND UNNATURAL. (Come on. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is just a bridge. We’ve all been on one. So it may be a little bigger, but you’re not going to climb the goddamn thing, are you?)

They are also premiering the first couple of episodes – subbed – in a lead up to the actual release of FMA sometime next week. Support your fandom! Stand up at the back of the hall and call out obscene things in references to Edward’s size and Roy’s flames! THEY MAY EVEN HAVE PLUSHIES.

Um. Yes. My point is to come along and FMA-cosplay. If you do decide to brave the unknown and come across an oddly tall Ed bolting around, screeching about costume-impracticalities due to the heat, come and say hello! I promise I’ll repress all urges to bite and scorn your family lineage. I’m really, really friendly, and we can do wonderful things in front of hundreds of people! (Personally, I’m hoping for another Ed. What’s better than Ed-on-Ed action?)


(Pleasepleaseplease. Please.)

wish i could help....
*hugs* I wish I could help but I am a plain boring American : x.

IF, however, someone actually does this...

"Hell, I don’t even care if you get your bathrobe and claim to be Edward."

YOU MUST GIVE US PICTURES for this would be a riot.

best of luck hon ^_^

Re: wish i could help....
'Tis completely and wonderfully fine! (Ah, one day I hope to step foot on an American convnetion. I'll probably kiss the ground and run around hugging people!)

Well, if someone does, I sure will! I might just take a photo of a bathrobe and CLAIM Ed wore it.

Thank you very much, and I have to say, I adore your icon. Sloth is love.

Thank you, sweetie! (You live in Michigan? That's brilliant on many levels, besides the fact it's a nifty word. As you can see, I watch WAY-HAY too much televison!)

Oh, well! One day you will find yourself longing to come to Australia and want to attend one of our weird-ass conventions! Sigh.

MAN. I can't go to any cons, because, alas, I live in Alaska. (I'm American, but I have no cons?!!)
But now you made me want to go buy a potted palm tree.
Nine: Yuna Chest.9tails on April 6th, 2005 01:57 am (UTC)
ALLLLLLLLLASKA! May I come and live with you? I'll be good; I'll sleep in the corner and you only have to throw doggie-treats from time-to-time.

Another Michigan-er! It must be something in the air that makes you all want to watch FMA!

I have two friends on LJ who live in Australia and are going to Supernova. However they haven't seen FMA yet and are very anxious to finally with the premier and all. ^^; They are cosplaying as Hellsing characters though. Their user names on here are likeatruck and captain_galaxy if you're interested. ^^

*Supanova... Can't spell cons. x_x

likeatruck and i are going as Hellsing characters, and we are going on both the sat and sun. If we see you there dont be alarmed if you see the two of us debating whether or not you are you and as to whether you will be throughly freaked out if we say hello.

Come on. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is just a bridge. We’ve all been on one

Here,Here Brisbane is just as good as Sydney (if not better) but i hate how now of the major concerts, plays and or conventions never come here.. GRRRR.

I hope to see you there!!!
Nine: Greed Woot.9tails on April 6th, 2005 02:09 am (UTC)

Hellsing? Excellent! I went as Seras last year on the Saturday, and it was so much fun. (Recently discovered the costume hiding in my cupboard, and ran away screaming). Who are you two prancing around as?

Oh, don't worry, I love chatting to random people! I'm probably only scary at first.
Me-to-be-me... oddly tall, blonde Edward, probably near two girls pretending to be J-Rock singers and a lunatic who thinks she's Vampire Hunter D. I'll look for you two!

Brisbane/ites are so very good. We have the bigger Supanova convention anyway. Hrrmph.

I also hope to see you there!

(I apologize if there are any random gramatical errors in this - I'm typing with fake nails. Oi-vey.)

... I live in London, where there's two cons a year and, if we're lucky, fifty people who have seen FMA throughout Britain :D.
Nine: Sephiroth/Vincent.9tails on April 7th, 2005 01:45 am (UTC)
I LOVE THE BRITISH.(Unfortunately, not makes of mayonnaise.) Your accents, your clothing, your shops, and more importantly, your SQUIRRELS!

Good luck with the conventions – just bribe random people on the street. Give ‘em five bucks to flounce around a really big, shiny building in black spandex and red-paint. You might get even more if you offer up lollipops and raffle off lawnmowers. If desperate, I suggest bribing with palm-trees.

(Heh-heh-heh. Show your Al true-brotherly-love, Edward... make sure it involves explicit situations and coarse language.)

Ooh, good luck!
