View Full Version : Cosplay Gathering for Cowboy Bebop Screening in SF?

10-07-2002, 04:56 PM
Hi everyone.

Man I'm just coming down from Ani-Magic and there's another con this weekend eek!
I just wanted to say I had a blast and it was really cool meeting a lot of you in person. :D

Anyway, back on topic...

The Sony Metreon Festival is this weekend in San Francisco with a screening of the new Cowboy Bebop movie. Whoohoo!


I was wondering anyone was interested in getting together and seeing the screening.

This wouldn't be an "official" cosplay.com thing, but I think it would be fun.

Currently the showings on Oct 12 and 13 at 4:30 or 7:00 at the Yerba Buena Center. It would be $10 for the festival and the movie pass.

I was thinking we could all get together for the Oct 12, 7:00 screening.

How does everyone feel about that?

Hey dude.. i was just thinking that.. cuz I'm going to go on Saturday as Hideki.. Can we have it earlier? cuz some people might leave before 7pm. Let's meet at the Yerba Buena Gardens...the park behind the metreon at 2:30 p.m. There are also people from the Fanime msg board that are meeting there as well. so we might as well kill two birds with one stone..

I kidan agree with Aoshi as well. That way if it's done earlier, we can all hang out and take a group pic! that should be fun!

Babbit-Chan: Oh that sucks. Why you can't go?

I was going to go with my sister but she can't swing it because of work - my family's going to try and go to San Francisco by Bart on the same day to go to this garden/shopping district, though, but we're not going to the Metreon *sob*

Oh that sucks. Well, if you are 18+, Yaoi-Con is the weekend after that. then it's all over for the california con season. I should check though when the new Recca-Con new dates are.

Babbit-chan, the Metreon is only 2 blocks away from the Powell BART station. Perhaps you can just toddle off whilst the rest of the family goes shopping? :)

Ryu-san: Recca Con is May 24+
Moo-san: OMG! I'll be able to go - I'll just have to go with my sister's boyfriend while she's at work! (I'll have to make it up to her when she gets off - doesn't seem fair) Expect to see short lil 'ol me in my Utena fuku next to a confused tall caucasion XD *rejoice*

That's good news to hear Babbit-Chan. I hope you be on time for the meeting for the fanimecon/cosplay.com messageboards. I'm glad that you are going!

2:30pm sounds good for a cosplay gathering. :) What time is everyone planning on getting there? The events start after the place opens at 10am, so I might get there at 11am or so to check out the anime, and use the free videogame $$ they give you. I bought my ticket today, and the only tickets & times available for the Bebop movie was 4:30pm and 7pm. I took 4:30pm, but if I don't watch the movie, it's not too big a deal since I've seen it before.. :p It's a great film!!

I might wear my Kim Jae Hoon costume for this event, so just look for me wearing a bright green & white karate uniform.. heehee :skidude2:

They start the events at 10? Wow - when does the whole thing end?

Aoshi Shinomori
10-09-2002, 04:33 PM
wow it starts at 10am? I must talk to my friend so we can arrive there early. I'll probably just end up buying the tickets there and wander around seeing if i can find anyone.. if not ill see u all at 2 30pm..

10-09-2002, 07:33 PM
Yeah I'll try to get there early as well. I'm taking BART so I have to leave real early to get my tickets. if the events starts at 10, might as well leave at 8:30 a.m and yeah, i'll be wandering as well and then meet everyone at the gathering. BTW, the garden is next to the Metreon...so, if you walk from the metreon to the garden, you can because you have doors to walk through. I'll try to draw a schematic of the building and post it here. that is if anyone is willing to host it for me.
