View Full Version : Kid's Anime Gathering?

Okay, I had this idea stagnating for a little while - I was going to throw it out there for A-Kon, but I decided to wait for AnimeFEST before giving it a shot.

You see, I am a Beyblade cosplayer and as such I am lucky if I can find one other of my kind at a con. However, instead of trying in vain to pull together a Beyblade gathering, I thought - why not a more general gathering, to meet more people and find others who are like me?

The idea is for people who happen to be cosplaying from animes, TV shows, cartoons, video games, comic books, and mangas that target younger audiences to get together.

If the fandom you are cosplaying from has a target audience of, say, below 13 years old or so, you would qualify. Though I don't really feel like placing restrictions. So long as your anime isn't all gory and meant for 17+, you should be okay.

So.. bad idea, or good idea?

Okay, in order to allow more cosplayers to join up, American cartoons, video games, and comics/mangas are allowed as well. So... yeah.

Anyone?

What day?! I'm so in! I'm going as Card Captor Sakura from the Watery episode, or otherwise known as Cardcaptors!

We're going to have a Lazy Town group at the convention! It's not anime, but it's not American either! XD Yay Iceland!!

Oooh yay replies.

Honey Usagi-chi: It's a bit early to put out a set time, so I'm going to wait a bit before picking out a day or location. But if anyone has any good suggestions, shoot!

HeeHee: Ahaha. Lazy Town definitely counts, if you'd like to join up.

Woot! I was hoping some Pokemon peeps would show up XD It wouldn't be complete without Pokemon, the biggest kid's fandom of them all!

Great; just get out the details and our group will try our best to get there.

I was thinking having the gathering on Saturday or Sunday. Mainly because I won't be there Friday, and Monday is basically the wind-down day when hardly anybody wears their costumes. What do you guys think?

Also, location. I am horrible with location. The best place I can think of is the second (?) floor, where the restaurants are. Perhaps in that area where they had the videogame photoshoot last year. If any of you guys have a good suggestion, please share. ._.;

I can do early Sunday only, since we leave around 2-ish.

I am so tempted to cosplay as Satoshi (Ash from Pokemon) this year. If only for like half a day. I'll get back to you all if I go through with it.

Sunday would be perfect for us, actually! We'll be in our outfits for the cosplay contest later that afternoon as it is! <3

Hm. Sunday might work, but I don't want to make it a problem for Honey (or any others who happen to be leaving on Sunday.) But, pushing it too early might be a bit troublesome for everyone.
Maybe around 10 or 11 AM Sunday? Or if we have to, in order to accommodate everyone, push it to Saturday afternoon or evening? Would that cut into anyone's plans?
Also, like I said, I suck at location, so any suggestions are appreciated. XD

Keep in mind, if you do it Saturday in the afternoon, you will be competing with a lot of other groups that all seem to want to schedule in the 12-4 time slots on Saturday. As it is I am already going to have to be selective of which group to attend since I can't be at everyone of them at once. Tis a pity. I will miss a lot of good shots. Hopefully I can make them up afterwards with individual shots.

All right then, Sunday morning will have to do. Thanks for giving me the heads up.

I am in as Raven from Teen Titans as long as it doesn't interfere with the Naruto photoshoot. (I think that's Sunday 1:30). :D

I'd try my absolute best for early Sunday morning. My group might be there, yet they might not XP If it's Saturday evening (7+) I think that could be fitted in. It must be hard though for alot of people knowing that the cosplay competition doesn't have a set time yet...

I'll be there as Sailor Chibi Moon and maybe Jem (from Jem and the Holograms)

Yay more people. The time for now is Sunday, 11:00 AM. It might change before AnimeFEST arrives, but that should do for now. Location is still up in the air. If anyone has suggestions, please share.

I think it should be at the DOWNSTAIRS restaurant of the hotel lobby, where the snack shop is. In other words, the second floor of the convention. We could be really creative with the scenery.

Honey: Are you talking about the coffee shop near the lobby? ...at least I think that's what it is o_o; I'm really, really bad with location.

The only good spot I can think of myself is the Atrium Star, which is that giant circular area amidst all the restaurants.

Any other opinions/suggestions?

Honey Usagi-chi

The coffee shop, yes, the one with the mini-shop that's next to the bar, by the stairway which leads to the main level of the con, the dealers & gaming area xD

All right, the lobby coffee shop will have to do.

Near the Coffee Shop in the Lobby, Sunday, 11:00 AM.

I'll do my best to be there, as a ton of plans are reconfigurating themselves :x Can't promise though ^^;

All right, AnimeFEST is just around the corner. Hopefully enough people will show up so this doesn't turn out to be a sad little gathering :|
I'll probably be down there a few minutes early, so look for a Takao from Beyblade and you'll find me. I'll be wearing blue shorts, a yellow shirt, a red jacket, and have dark blue hair. I'd hold up a sign but I hear they rip your head off for that sort of thing. Sooo hopefully you guys can find me. I'll wave my Kai plushie around by the scarf if I have to. >:|

On Sunday I'll most likely be doing something from Avatar with a friend. We'll try to be there!
