Ken is dust_eden
btw and Jet is naoekun
. I should have enough ornaments to decorate the tree tastefully if I can find them (since they're my normal decorations). I'll look for them tonight.
Okay, a couple things.
Tree - good. White lights for tree - haven't retested them yet this year, but I have some. Matching ornaments - still looking. lol I might bring my two snowflake bowls if we want to put something in them (I was actually thinking of popcorn and then maybe we could try to string them like in the old days?).
Another little silly thing I was thinking of... bringing my point-and-shoot camera and doing a few in-character myspace-style shots with each person. A sort of "Italy's Christmas". France and Italy blowing kisses to the camera, brofisting with America, Italy glomping Japan, etc. I won't look at the pictures after I take them, so some might be out of focus or framed wrong or stuff like that, but I figure he'd be like that anyways. Put a white border around them so they're like snapshots (like those tv shows or movies with flashbacks where they just montage a collection of photos that are taken by amateur hands). Photobombing encouraged (in-character). If we have down time or whatever. But I'm thinking about it.
I'm getting strangely excited about this!
I wouldnt worry too much about the lights since I will be bringing them. Actually Ming is bringing a lot of stuff too; lots of ornaments included courtesy of Big Machine Design LOL
I like your idea of Italy's Christmas. Perhaps it's something that you can do while I'm shooting another group of people. Please feel free to do whatever you want to do!
I overguessed my tree's size. It's 3 feet. lol I'll still bring it, but I thought I'd warn you it's smaller than anticipated.
Yay! Glad you got a France.
Oh geez, you got Ken to be your France? XD
I'll be there to make this shoot NC17.
That's the spirit!!! :DDD
France and Italy naked times (or at least in my case, pantsless)? I have a fake rose for you if you need one btw. XD
Should I bring real ones from my garden? The pink ones are blooming.
does Ken need my wig? and I have some extension cords i can bring, and i'll pick up some christmasy snacks as well~
oh oh and i have santa hats i can bring
please bring the France wig!! We don't have one XD;;
I'm reminding him not to shave btw lol
Yus! Please dont forget your glasses!
Wow I must be insane, I thought I commented on this already. o_________o
As for ornaments, I have a pack of 4 and a pack of 6 that I found. I can maybe find 1 or 2 more if you think we'll need more?
And I have 4 wrapped presents ready to go~~ I had lots of random sized boxes lying around. 8D; (ONE IS KIND OF UGLY ON ONE SIDE THOUGH--DON'T LOOK AT IT WHEN I BRING IT)
And if I have time I can try to bring those strawberry things we talked about but I am not sure since I'll be out all day tomorrow~
So apparently Ming is bringing this XBOX HUGE box full of Christmas stuff, courtesy of Big Machine Design! LOL I wouldnt worry so much about finding more ornaments because I think we have more than enough. What we would really need is some garland though. If you have any.
And don't stress over the strawberry Santas--- If you cant make it then you can't make it. It's no big deal. But if you can make them, AWESOME, because they're so friggin cute LOL
Ahh garland is one thing I don't have on hand! If I can find some on time, what color or what type? Like those silver-y or gold garlands?
Oh, I won't stress over them. It would just be SO CUTTEEEEE. I just wish I was online to see Camille's post earlier. Haha~
Oh hey, I also have a 9 ft. extension cord I'll be bringing! I dunno if you need it or not by now but I'll have it just in case.
WHEEE~ finally get to play/shoot with you cool cat~
ok for tableware i've had these tea sets that I have been DYING to use http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v483/jetspectacular/0a627c14.jpg
this red and gold one I think would be ok for holiday? The design is floral with geometric gold ribbon, so it's not too asian or too european IDK i have no idea where this came from but we have it XD' unfortunately there are only 6 cups...
so there is also my ONE LONE badass teacup i've already used as a prop several times (last time for Ello's england at PMX) so that's 7..
and then I have this http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v483/jetspectacular/799a9d41.jpg
japanese set which.. may be too girly :< ?
otherwise i have boring white ones, a few Xmas ones that aren't too tacky as well I'll bring backups just in case.
also I have some holiday candle, tablesettings, i'll Bring 8 really pretty plates...!
any thoughts? (of course i'm also bringing wine and a whole lot of delicious tea :9 )
ken and I will both bring prop presents as well~
ORIGHT, this wig I thought would work for Seychelles is too thin/dark so i'll come along as little assistant Vietnam :3 putting wardrobe together tonight..
I think Ken's France will end up being mostly red, white (or cream), black and grey...
OH. MY. FREAKING. GOD.
First off, thanks sooo much for making this dinner thingy possible! I wasn't going to make it a huge priority because I've been so unprepared for it--- but man, you're making this come alive!! So thank you!!
BTW, Amy would be super jealous of your tea set---- she loves tea sets! I really love the first set. I don't think everyone will be drinking from the tea cups, so I wouldnt worry about having 8 of them. Actually wine glasses for France and Italy would be awesome.
Candles are an awesome touch. I was planning on buying a table wreath with candles but I cant find any. So the holiday candles will be great. Table settings too! oh man oh man oh man!!!
ok wineglasses for France and Italy. And we have so much xmas decoration/kitchy stuff here it's basically just "oh that doesn't need dusting ok put it in the car" soo much stuff lol.
I'm probably going to end up hitting up Target tomorrow, so I can try and nab some garland while I'm there :D
I hope you have better luck than I did--- I tried looking for wreaths but no luck DDDD:
Aw. D: Well the Target here has a massive Christmas section, so we can hope. I'll send another comment tomorrow to let you know the results of my expedition!
Try Rite-Aid or CVS too if Target doesn't work! Target failed me on Santa hats, but there was an overwhelming amount at CVS. ^_^
40ft of clear lit garland get! :D
I can bring Peppermint Bark!
