Salad Time Soldiers attended Animarathon on April 14th, 2007 and entered the cosplay event as a
sneak peek, performing
Tsukiiro no Syndicate. The girls learned their dance moves with less than a month's time, and only one group practice. Everyone worked hard, throughout the practice and the performance, and in the end, it all turned out well. The song was performed with Usagi, Ami, Hotaru, and Seiya (who will be our Uranus in the official performances), as not all of our members could make it.
At the convention we encountered many challenges. With technical difficulties in the cosplay room, costume malfunctions at inopportune times, and sick members, things were looking pretty dim before the performance. Everyone pushed on through these problems, and we performed despite having basically no sound, and with one member sitting out as she was sick. Though we did not win any awards, it was fun, which is the whole point of STS.
Later on during the con, we were able to use the stage again, and recorded the dance from a better angle than before. We still had minimal sound, but everyone was able to perform this time.
I'm glad we had the opportunity to perform at Animarathon, it was an experience that we can build on in the future.
We have dubbed the music overtop of the actual performance for this clip, given the circumstances. You can view it here.
