Yep, that was Ikxeru with the Kaltxì on his txim. It was his T-shirt. And the moth was fine

It was the last full day of AvatarMeet 2013 and what better way to round off than with cosplay!! The day started early with painting up for those who were taking part. Those taking part were Ikxeru, Sarah, Fiyerwall, Wiesel and DJ Makto. It took them several hours to get all painted up, but once transformed, you can imagine the reaction.

The other visitors to the lodge who walked past wanted their photos taking with them. Even the staff came out the woodwork too, with some of them poking their heads above the fence like meerkats! We were keeping the Avatar spirit alive, and everyone knew Avatar!

After the mini photo shoot we were directed up to Blackrock, which was a five minute walk away and overlooked the valley. The view was...outstanding and the perfect setting for some Avatar/Na'vi shots. No doubt these will be posted so keep a look out

The next port of call was a waterfall that was located near by. It was decided to walk there as it was only a mile or so.....more 'so' than 'mile' I think! As we walked along the sidewalk cars kept slowing down. Some took photos. Some stopped to find out what we were doing. It was amazing we didn't cause an accident!

Eventually we made it to the start of the path that lead to the water falls. We were joined by some of the others from the camp including Paul and John. All of a sudden, the natural environment with our Na'vi seemed to take on a Pandoran feel to it...until we met some tawtute! Hehehehe.

It was interested seeing the different reactions from people from those who pretended not to see anything through to those who stopped for a good chinwag, which was great. We had a video camera with us and a number of people asked if we were filming the next Avatar! We soon corrected them.

Eventually we made it to the falls where there were a load of people doing their thing. That soon changed to a mass photo shoot of Na'vi around the waterfalls, making sure they did not get wet!

Eventually we exhausted the photo opportunities there and continued to the very bottom of the falls. DJ Makto wanted to do a piece to camera for AvatarNation....away, ten takes later... Hahaha

Now came the hard bit, climbing up Iknimaya! While is it that thinks seem steeper going up rather than down? Well we are a sturdy bunch and so 'photo opportunities' were taken every once in a while. Raiden managed to catch a couple of snakes along the way and educated us about them. Near the top we saw a log balance across the stream and so one more photo opportunity was taken. This ended up being a bit of and expensive photo shoot for Mikko, who dropped one of his lenses in the drink! Fortunately it was insured.

Once at the top some opted for a ride back to base, whilst a few of us took a trail back through the woods. Back at camp cameras and laptops littered the tables as photos were downloaded and camera talk filled the air....oh and Mikko poked at his 'damp' lens.

Whilst we waited for the rest to arrive the campfire was started - eventually! However once it got going with the help of a 'wafter', AKA chopping board, it was soon roaring away. Chicken was the order of the day, with steamed veggies, oh, and a S'mores cake that Raiden made. Om, yom, yom.

The rest of the evening was spent with general chit-chat whilst we observed the lightning in a cumulonimbus cloud in the distance. There was a really good discussion with Paul about how in the film making process, some of the Na'vi had to be shortened to fit the film. The reason being that English it a relatively compact language compared to others, especially Na'vi.

As the evening turned to night, people began to drift back to their beds, but not before some heart felt 'kiyevames' and 'Eywa ngahus' were expressed...

Alan.

cosplay in the natural environment do I have to say anything else?? (read: AWESOME).

DJ Makto signed up for cosplay??? Now I've got to see that! got the photo/ video itch, aw! I guess I saw everybody else in blue action already... err... save Wiesel. Yes, definitely, photos/videos are seriously needed to help the imagination!
(how's that sprained muscle doing? better now?)

So... it's over? already? too soon... I got a leaky eye sindrom while reading the last line!

Ahhh....parting is such sweat sorrow... It was hand shakes and hugs all round. I'm now sat alone, without my Avatar family at St Pancras railway station having just arrived back in the UK, waiting for my train back to the East Midlands.

Yeah, there will be a fair amount of video editing to do. But I suspect the photos will be out there pretty soon. So keep a watch out

I have to give a massive irayo nìtxan to everyone who came (or couldn't) and helped make it happen. It was really great to see everyone again in person and also meet new aysmuk.

We were honoured to have Karyu Pawl and John join us and really be a part of the meet up. We are so grateful to Paul for giving us Na'vi class 102 and to John who gave everyone a Na'vi badge that he had had produced with the help of Prrton. Irayo nìtxan ma aysmukan.

Also to Jon Landau, who gave time in his busy schedule to send us a message and Lightstorm who were so generous to us in paying for the room rental for the drinks and food for the Avatar showing.

Irayo to Peter and Mikko who provided and sorted out all the techie equipment for the Na'vi lessons and showing Avatar.

Irayo to DJ Makto who dealt with the food for the meet up, in spite of the rainy day. Irayo to Sarah too for organising the cosplay.

Irayo to everyone who came and made it a wonderful and fun meet up despite whatever troubles came along in our path. It was a wonderful event with many treasures memories to keep.

Lastly, but not least, irayo nìtxan to my German aysmukan who accommodated me in their vehicle and took me to the campsite and brought me back to the airport. You are wonderful and fun people to be with.

Irayo nìtxan ulte Eywa ngahu

Alan

irayo for the pics, Alan & Leonopteryx! The cosplay ones, especially those on the rocks by the waterfalls are txantsan, looking at ones a bit in a distance one can really think of Avatar 2 filming! I would...

I laughed like hell looking at 'Yasu And The Pineapple' series Wait... Yasu = DJ Makto??? or, what have I been smoking... Anyways, tall & wiry people are the biz for the cosplay.

I was also quite a bit amazed at 'Raiden And The Moth' shots: the moth felt rather comfortable on Raiden nose! did they make a tsaheylu??
