Looking for band members in Montreal ( VOC, 2nd GUIT, DR )
SORRY >_< im posting this in soo much places!

OUR band is looking for a DRUMMER and a second GUITARIST to cover some j rock songs, we write our own pieces too.

we can play things from L'arc~En~Ciel to Gazette
or from Alice Nine to X Japan

we are a very open band, unfortunetly our previous drummer had to drop out due to familly problems. So we had stoped our activities.

we sometimes try to look a little more V KEI , but this isn"t a requirement.

if you are a drummer, It would be preferable for you to have your own drum set.

any gender  is welcomed

we are located in the montreal area
any one from outside of montreal is also welcomed,( laval, st-jerome ) and so on.

We could also use a vocalist, If any vocalist are interested , please contact us .

If you have any question please feel free to contact me at bigsteamboat@gmail.com

Hello, anime fans! Just wondering if this community still has active members that are planning on Otakuthon 2008? Looks like there haven't been any updates in over a year...

I'm trying to come up for this year's con from Boston. =)

WOW ! O.O
Hey guys !!!!

OMG, personally I think Otakuthon was a HUGE success !!! It was so crowded and so much fun !! People were so nice all the time, everything was so neat !! ( I mean, for a very FIRST convention, it ROCKED !! It can just get better in the next years !! ) So many cosplayer, even on Sunday !! ^____________^ They got like more than 2K of people O.O That's like waaaay more than what they were expected ( specially on a rainy saturday like that ! )

So what do you think about the whole thing ? I was at my artist table all the time so I haven't been able to leave my table that much and it was almost always crowded, the sales went so wonderfully well, so much more than what I could ever expect, I'm so happy the artists got such a great visibility and it looks like it went really well for all of them !!! ^______^ I can't beleive all the amazing talent I saw there, wonderful ! )

I'd like to know what you thought about the whole convention ! Good and bad things ! ^.^ And please post pics if you have some, I'll post a bunch of them real soon along with some video ! ^__^ I'd say the only bad thing that happened on my side was that my headset/microphone during the J-pop show decided to be an ass and was making those funny noises XDDDDDDDD But oh well, we did it anyway lol ! ;-p And it was so much fun XD

Thanks all for coming, I'm positively sure there will be an Otakuthon 2007, it has to !!! And I'll sooo be there again for sure ! ^_^ It was a blast !! It's hard to beleive that Montreal got it's very own anime convention !!

Hope you enjoyed your week-end and post some reviews please ! ^___^
XOXOXOX

Otakuthon Day 1
Well, day 1 is 30 minutes away from being over as I typed this.

What did you guys do? What did you guys buy?

I played games all day long and got disqualified in the first round of the SSBM "tournament" (yeah, I was the one who took Luigi and got badly pwned D: ). I bought two mangas (Gundam 0079 vol 7-8) while a friend of mine bought a Gundam Zeonography figure. It looked downright bad-ass, but I didn't have any money so...D:

I'll be going tmrw as well, might look at some of the anime shows and whatnot, but I'll be playing OMNI vs ZAFT and get pwned again at SSBM XD

woooo less than a week before Otakuthon O.O
Zomg only 5 days left before Otakuthon !! Are you excited ? XD

Do you think it will be a total success or do you think it will be just like all the other con at Montreal which were mostly ... a .. "flop" ?

Oh also, I'm just curious, are you planning to come to the con mostly on Saturday or Sunday ( or both days ) ? And what is the thing/event you are the most excited about ?

zomg what a friendly useless gay post it is >.> ! Trying to kill the time till then XD ( I think I need a life >.> )

Can't wait to meet you all there ! ^.^
XOXOX

( oh and for those who are interested, there will be a "Gothic Lolita meeting" for Otakuthon on Saturday ( unless the date change since then ) at 12h00, Métro Concordia, so if you wanna show your lolitaness in all it's glory ( without actually feeling like a complete UFO since there should be so many other cosplayers anyway XP ) make sure you check this entery here for more details ^.^ :

Yay for livejournal, I tend to be better at introducing myself in these than in forums.

So, hello! My name is Melanie, 24 year old crazy-go-nuts person, known online as Pixle.

I draw somewhat, but sadly I've had no training, and everyone in my family hates artwork, so I mostly drew for the hell of it, but it has affected me in the sense that I never think I'm good enough to go professionally. I'm a big fan of video games, so that tends to show up a lot in my art, and in my spending habits (140 video games and counting). Um, I also do 3D with 3D studio Max.

I am new to Montreal, I arrived about 10 months ago to come and live with my boyfriend. Before, I lived in the Sagunay region. Otakukon sounds like fun, but since I know no one I'm still not sure if I want to go at all. The only other convention I attented (Anime North) last year was completely ablismal because I knew no one and my boyfriend was only moderately interest, so we pretty much just wandered around for an hour before getting bored. 8D.

Hopefully I will get to know more of you on the forums and in the Livejournal so I'll get the courage to go to the convention and say hi. I promise that I'm fairly normal and I've had all my shots and tick baths.

BTW, I'm AirMaster on the forums.

Welcome !
Hi there !!

Because I'm a geek and enjoy spending SOME ( lol ;-p ) of my free time over the livejournal, and for my passion to anime and conventions, I've decided to create a livejournal community for the Montreal's Otakuthon ! Please read the community profile for more infos about the community ( still currently editing it >.> ) So well, now you can talk about the convention and share whatever you want about it on livejournal ! ^___^ ( of course there's a forum on the Otakuthon's website, but I'm not really a forum person XD I'm a livejournal geek though, so if you're like that too then this community is for you! )


As for me, my name is Delphine and not only I will be to the convention but I also have the honor to be part of the special guests this year as a professional fantasy and horror artist, ( which is my full time job since 6 years ^.- ) You can see my website here : http://www.zerick.com
I'm not really "well-known" in Quebec O_o ... but as for in the USA, and other countries, I'm glad to be able to say that you can find a tons of products in very popular chain stores featuring my art on ! ^___^ Been invited to other conventions before in other countries but well, not always that easy to find a way to get there when you live in Quebec XD ! So I'm more than happy to be part of the convention this year at Montreal where I live !! It's hard for artists to be known "locally" and I think events such Otakuthon are very important and interesting for a lot of artists here, it is a true pleasure for me to be there as a guest, I will be showing more than a dozen of original paintings there in exclusivity!
A large collection of prints featuring more than 50 different artworks from me will also be available at the convention, as well as some of my officially licensed merchandise! ^.^ And I'll surely be dressed as one of my mysterious character for the occasion! ^.- I'll be there Saturday from 10:00am to 2:00pm, and Sunday all day long ! ^___^

I'm also part of the otakuthon "Irulanne and friends" J-pop concert on Saturday, June 10 ( 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM at the D.B. Clark Theatre ) as a singer with my friend Irulanne ( of course lol ) plus two other friends, Clara and Moegan ! Don't miss the show, we've been working hard on it since January ! ^___^

So welcome to the community and feel free to post photos, your ideas and thoughts, rant/vent, share your excitement, etc ! As long it is Otakuthon, Montreal and convention/anime related it's all good !

Hope to see you all there in June, stop by my table and say hi !!! ^___________^
Thanks and enjoy !
~Delphine ^_^
