View Full Version : After Photoshoot picnic?
05-22-2003, 08:13 PM
It was suggested by the looking for love at Otakon people to have a singles lunch at Otakon, but I thought it might be more fun just to have a big cosplay.com lunch after the cosplay.com photo! ^_^ Dont worry the singles can still meet hehe, but i wa sjust wondering what evryone thought of that idea, what theyd want or what theyd bring, etc. A bunch of others thought it sounded like a good plan, jut wanna get more opinions and get the word out.
im pretty sure we canthave food in teh con centertechnically... but we can figure something out, i think ^^

^-^ Well I vote me for bringing a cake....I love to bake, and not to brag...im pretty damn good at it too~! Id be glad to make a cake and some cookies~! ^-^ Just lemme know if ur allergic to certain ingredients...wouldnt want to kill anyone~! :D
05-23-2003, 12:13 AM
I don't think I'd be able to bring much food wise because of the whole travelling thing, but I wouldn't mind chipping in a little to help out,
and I'd be more than happy to go, just depending on what time and everything, because I'm signed up for a couple of groups :P
05-23-2003, 12:24 AM
yah im sure we all are and well keep it in mind. Moonclarinet thought about chipping in for some pizz aor subs. Or we can have a mass cosplay dinner some where? o.O Wouldnt that be exciting!?
Sounds like a great idea to me. I'd gladly chip in some money for food and stuff. Which day were you thinking of having it?
05-23-2003, 01:06 AM
well i figure the day of the photoshoot would most likely be Saturday so we can do it after that.
Oh and i wa sthinking if maybe we want to bring ourfood and things over close r to the harbpor and eat and take more pics there XD its pretty. I dunno if there ar emany places for large groups to sit but i think there is ^^;;;
05-23-2003, 02:16 AM
ooh Id love to join/chip in! keep me posted
If I could find a thread on when the cosplay shoot is then I'll more then happily be part of it, I'd try to bring something..... even if it were Hi Chew or Pocky lol ^_^;
05-23-2003, 01:20 PM
The way the con center is set up, I don't think it would be possible to do it at Otakon. I'm not sure about any parks or large areas in the city, but there are tons of restaurants around.
Here's the Otaku Chow link:
05-23-2003, 02:00 PM
yeah thats why i was thinking if its nice ut to go down by the harbor and it.
05-23-2003, 09:31 PM
I'll deffinately go. And it will probably be the only time I eat the entire convention...lol
eeee, I think that's a great idea! You know all of ur friends here in Jackson will bring stuff. I'll make the other dana bake something and with all the people coming with us, we'll bring food...like we did for shoujocon last year. lol ^^ Anyways, yea! I'll pass the word around to everyone here! I love the idea!

lol yeah probably the same for most evryone going ^^
thanks leann!! ::huggles:: spread to word hehe
So, out of curiosity when would the photo shoot be and where? ... Also we'd have to set up a time and where we would all meet up at for this picnic.
05-24-2003, 11:46 AM
Sounds like a great idea! I would love to bring some food, but I doubt it would survive well in the car for six hours. So I'd definitely chip in money for pizza or something, or even buy something at a supermarket to bring. What time is the photoshoot?
05-24-2003, 12:10 PM
*pouts* I can't eat in the costume I'm wearing to the shoot, most likely, unless it's clear liquids and dry foods with a fork. *winks* I'll still hang out and make lizzy feed me. (unless someone else wants to volunteer to feed a poor girl in a white plugsuit who can't take her gloves off) Hmm... *envisioning a large bib* Maybe I can work something out... hehehe....
05-24-2003, 12:19 PM
lol Ill feed you! XD
yeah im not sure when the photoshoot is going to be, it will probably de decided later on another thread, but it will probably be in the after noon like 1 or 2 im sure
hmmm I may bring my camera for this feeding thing lol j/k , but I think we should just post here about the photo shoot and picnic and probablly even list what we are going to bring... I can tell ya right now I think I'll probally be bringing Pocky and Hi Chew.
05-24-2003, 01:28 PM
ok thats cool! ^_^ I think moonclarinet and i are going to try and figure out some pizza or sub thing to get by the harbor. prolly bring some drink too XD
That sounds good Makon... I will suggest (as someone who lives VERY near baltimore) if we are going to do this picnic DO NOT have it right near the docks... the stuff that gets caught up in there can look really icky and smell sometimes.
05-25-2003, 11:39 PM
i haven't been on the forums in a while...like 3 days!! i'm so behind!
ok first off great idea mako, and did i really say pizza? i have no memory at all, but if i did then i'm a genius b/c it's a great idea. ^_^ i love the idea of going out to some place too except taht if a lot of people end up going to this it might be tough to find a place to serve us all, and if we need reservations it could be a whole hassle. so i think pizza/subs and assorted things that those who are close enough can bring will be a great idea. also much cheaper for those of us watching the purse strings.
05-26-2003, 02:21 AM
Moonclarinet... I know what ya mean.. I took the past two days off and I felt SOOO lost when I got back...
I was actualy super concentrating on my costume taht I distanced myself from the real world for thsoe days... got alot done ^_^
Anywho.. like I ahve said a few times before.. I will be wearing my avatar around my neck or somewhere highly visible.. So you guys know its me.. keep me posted becasue I'd like to hang out and get to know more fellow cosplayers
05-26-2003, 04:49 PM
^_^ yeah i lik ethe avatar wearing idea and i may do that myself! Its easier to recognize evryon ethat way hehehe
yeah so some people want to eat hehe thats good. if te group stays this small we wont hav eto worry about getting too much food hehe. Yeah mon im pretty sure you said pizza XD so sbs or pizza. Well think more abot this a bit closerto the con ^^;;
That could be our secret pass thing... you gotta have your avatar somewhere on you.... or send us what your going to wear... and then you'll be able to get the grub... so it'll sorta be cosplay.com only people ^_^
05-26-2003, 08:18 PM
o.0.....sounds exclusive.....I like it!
05-26-2003, 08:29 PM
lol i guess but i think the ticket should be pitch in some cash to subs or whatnot or bring some food then you can eat hehe
05-27-2003, 02:42 AM
oooh I like that! so can we make it official?
To attend the cosplay.com picknick you MUST wear your current avatar on a highly visible area on your body.
05-27-2003, 02:06 PM
umm i dunoo about that cactus, i just think it should be a food or monetary donation toward the lunch :9
hmmm now that I think about it yeah, it should just be like bring some type of food or snack or donate 5-10$ for supplies, drinks, snacks, etc... Now then with that out of the way where should we meet at to show people where to go and where shall we have this?
05-27-2003, 03:36 PM
well since its after the cosplay.com photos well all be congragated anyhow so then we can go on our merry way to outside by the harbor or someplace. I swear there are benches and some good places for eating around there ::thinks hard::
05-27-2003, 03:52 PM
We can hide the food under our costumes! XD
Xx Lulu xX
05-27-2003, 04:03 PM
XD i like making signs..i could put like Picnic people group here....XD or suttin
05-27-2003, 04:11 PM
or, FREE FOOD!
Xx Lulu xX
05-27-2003, 04:14 PM
XD no no free food would attract wayyy to many people...itd be insane
05-27-2003, 04:16 PM
Ohhh I like that idea!!!..this is nice i always wanted to meet sum new cosplayers ^_^;;....is it ok if i bring My best friend with me to this???...she always comes to cons with me...*my only companion T.T* pleaaase!!...she'll donate!
05-27-2003, 04:18 PM
Hey, if you guys need any help I'll be glad to pitch in. Did you already decide on a time? And where in the harbor will you be having it?
Xx Lulu xX
05-27-2003, 04:18 PM
^-^ Sure i dont see the problem in that, as long as they donate...:D
05-27-2003, 04:21 PM
Can it say 'poisonous food, come if u dare' IT COULD BE CODE NAME FOR COSPLAY.COM PICNIC ^_^; do we have to come in costume?
05-27-2003, 04:35 PM
Hmmm yay! My friend will Donate!!!....we always argue what are we gonna do about food round lunch time ...>.<. I'll wear my avatar and give her a sign that says "FRIEND". ^_^;;
I'll see if i can bring anything, if not then i'll donate sum $$ ^_^
*sighs* read the posts no pic of avatar needed... All I need to know now is when the photo shoot will be and we can go ahead from there.
05-27-2003, 10:08 PM
yeah well no one has decided that yet... maybe we should post and ask when evryon ethinks itd be best for th ephotoshoot? Its usualy decided a lil closer to the con... XD And no costumes arent requred. nothing is required except food hehe
05-27-2003, 11:54 PM
It'd be cool to have a potluck type thing a la NE Picnic, but....who would drag a container of brownies to the con, except locals? (I hardly have enough room in my suitcase as it is ^_^;)Hmmm.....perhaps a monetary donation would work?
05-28-2003, 12:06 AM
yeah lol XD hehe Were doing both. Whatever id better fo ryou! Then you can eat whatever! ^^ just save some so evryone gets some lol. I know some peopl ewo will gladly drag along food ^.~ ::looks in Akutenshi and Kijos direction::
btw kurenai i love your avatar! Arina sama is the best!XD
05-28-2003, 12:41 AM
Thank you! I love yours too! (Is that Maron?) and your location hee ^___^ I'd love to bake something nice and take it...well...we'll see how loaded my poor pilot case gets O.o Otherwise, cash is good...and if there's a grocery store somewhere in Baltimore near the harbor, that works too!
05-28-2003, 01:14 AM
Yeah its maron. Theres gotta be a subway in the mall and stuff :D or something! lol i know theres food all over there so no worries I say
05-28-2003, 03:37 AM
I say we post all over the convention centre a date and time for the picnic or what ever and if you bring a donation taht is a definate plus..
havign your avatar on is also a plus, but not required. and i think the code name thing is a good idea...
Something like Water Buffalo Lodge Meeting @ 5pm... or soemthing like that... I dunno what do ya expect..? its almost 4am
05-28-2003, 04:08 AM
lol weird idea.. def not all over the con... o.O too many people... not cool.. just stick with mostly cosplay.comers and their friends.
hmmm..... well I just had an idea, since most of us are probabllly going to be getting there early in the morning how about we all meet in the main lobby for people who are getting supplies and setting this up?
05-28-2003, 07:48 PM
Assuming nothing conflicts I would bring a Jello mold to the party.
I would bring something... but I think it would look EXTREMELY odd of me haveing stuff on the light rail (I'm already gonna be in costume) ... So I am forced to get stuff at the convention.
05-29-2003, 07:24 PM
thats just fine fist ^_^ no worries
06-01-2003, 10:42 AM
blah, drinks we need drinks -_-
06-01-2003, 11:33 AM
We're bringing cash,aren't we?
06-01-2003, 05:23 PM
I am just curious...if most of us are out-of-town and bringing cash (myself included) will whoever's getting the food have enough help? Also, shall we all bring a set amount?
06-01-2003, 06:03 PM
I think once it gets close to convention time we should put a phonr list together and coordinate. I know I'll bring a few litres of soda and chips or somerhing. I can make a mean Italian cold cut sub!
As far as meeting up early on Friday, I like that idea...
ya know that aread where all the flags n stuff are? We should meet down there.
06-01-2003, 06:08 PM
^ flags is good dea and yeah will try to set an amount closer to the con were gonna try to figure out how many people will be coming and how much subs will be to cover that amount aof people and ill probably have myself, moonclarinet, Jackusersa name perhaps :P and my bf halping so i think well be ok. If others can brings a bottle of soda or something ill get cups and plates. But as I said well worry about this closer to the con
I'm not sure if there is a store near the BCC or not... if there is then I'll help with the soda. As for the phone list... I think we should make it more of an email list, because I'm sure that there are people here which don't want to give there phone number out over the web to people who they don't even know (I'm sorta in that category lol ^_^;)
06-01-2003, 08:34 PM
lol yeah no numbers i can track you all that have posted ^^ hehe you all have emails in your profiles
06-02-2003, 01:01 PM
please sign me up too :)
If all goes well I should be able to go ^^
06-03-2003, 10:52 PM
works for me...
If everyone is good maybe we can order some pizzas
06-04-2003, 04:16 PM
pizzas maybe too messy :9 tasty but .... hmm maybe its just that i love subs but i think thatd be good ^-^ hehe ok pizza isnt so messy.. im just crazy... XD
06-04-2003, 07:26 PM
Bee Glad to help out!@
06-04-2003, 10:00 PM
buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ::fliesa round:: ^_^ ok thanks for the help!
Well I've got some bad news ppl, I'm going to be traveling with friends and I doubt with a group of around eight of us, that all of them will want to come. So I don't know if I'll be able to make it to the picnic. If I can though I will but it's gonna be really hard.
06-05-2003, 03:18 PM
o what should I bring?
06-07-2003, 09:00 AM
something that wont spoil! lol aww poor fist. well see you though
06-07-2003, 09:42 AM
i can bring cake & pop
06-09-2003, 12:25 PM
ok we got cake and soda now hehe And well be trying to get subs as well so bring whatever else you think youd want to eat ^_^
06-09-2003, 02:53 PM
I'll can bring Cookies!!..or plates or Cups! or napkins!!
06-09-2003, 03:41 PM
I think im going to cover cups napkins and such so you dont have to worry about that.. though im sure one extra thing of napkins ould be useful hehe
06-09-2003, 04:38 PM
I'll bring what i can
06-09-2003, 08:41 PM
Yea! I'm in too! I'm not sure what to bring though becuase I'm driving 15 hours to the con.
06-09-2003, 08:43 PM
wow thats quite a drive! XD You can just donate some moneys to subs and stuff.. I gotta get to organizing more! though i do have ove 60 days lol
06-11-2003, 10:49 AM
phew! this is my first post in quite a while...work and class is keeping me busy! looks like this thread has been doing nicely....i see a fun time shaping up!! mako, i guess i'll help out with you with the cups and plates etc. Food will never work. For setting up early Friday, i guess it depends when we get there. when's check in, 12? 3? i forget.
Depending how many people are definitely going, we could do pizza and subs, although i'm partial to subs myself. they're a little healthier, and i have a feeling i'll be eating lots of garbage over the weekend lol.
and a big YES to the money/food requirement. if you eat, you must contribute! also avatars are a great idea, and i think a lot of people are planning on wearing them anyways at the con so it should be easy. oooo so excited!! :rofl:
