This is something that a few people on the forums encouraged me to do since I'm cosplaying an original fantasy jrocker already; since it's a fairly good idea, I decided to go for it!
So here's the story: the name of the band is "Lullaby Dementia" (Since the whole concept came from a kind of weird dream, I just kept the name intact ^^; ). The fans call the band "LalaDei" for short.
The name of the band is written out as "Lullaby" written in romaji and the kanji for "trance/ecstasy" (I wanted to use the kanji for "dementia", but it also translates to "senility" or "senile dementia"! XD). I used the kanji "忘我" because I like the meaning of the two individual characters (to forget one's self/ego). I'm finally done with the font, so all that is left is to do the logo for the member armbands .
Each person who joins my band will be considered an "eternal member of LalaDei" and will receive an armband, so even if we never do this again, we'll have something to remember that we were in a band together!! I'm sentimental like that... I'm also designing buttons and/or stickers for us to give out to our "fans".
I originally envisioned LalaDei as all male (but that's because I'm partial to androgynous males). I'd also accept one (but just one) androgynous female though, but since it's a visual kei band, I want to do the elegant gender-bender thing.
You don't have to be able to perfectly pull off the androgynous thing either, we're not actual jrockers, we're just cosplaying them! Don't worry if you can't hide [this part] or whatever. Do your best!
I really only want serious takers, and I don't care where you're from, as long as we can all meet up on the same day and time at ACen. I'm watching the threads for the jrock meetup (if there is one next year) so that "same day and time" will coincide with then.
Vo: Tooru (RitsukasMemory)
Gu: Hoshi (Dada-Velvet Eden)
2nd Gu/ Vo: Hideki (omnichild)
Ba: Naoki (this_chick25)
Dr: Rei (stalking_sorrow)
Ke: Ryousuke (TekoMuto)
OK, you guys: we don't have to match perfectly or even be all the same color, but we DO have to look like we're all in the same band! We can't walk around looking like someone grabbed a member each of Laruku, M10M, PuraTuri, PLC, and AnCafe and roped them all together now, can we? (Wow... THAT'D be a pretty motley crew XD)
Here's what we'll be wearing (subject to minor changes):
Instrument (mic): TBA
Instrument (guitar): bright red
Instrument (omnichord?): TBD
Instrument (electric bass): TBA
Instrument (drumsticks): red
Instrument (keyboard?): TBA
SO WHAT TIME DO WE MEET?!?
It's WAYYYY TOO EARLY, as I'm sure there will be panel attendees in our group, but the panel scheduling hasn't been announced yet so I can't work without that info.
