Hey everybody, I wanted to tell you that the ADJ.Bishoujo are planning a Halloween Cosplay gathering on Sunday, October 26th at Creek Park in La Mirada. If nobody has any idea where this place is, tell me where you are located. Creek Park is a few miles off the 5 freeway and off of Beach Blvd. We want as many ppl to come. We'll probably make it a potluck and if anybody has a portable cd player ppl can bring their cds and we'll have fun and play games like kick the kuroneko! So if anybody has ideas or suggestions as to how to make stuff even more funner, leave a message and also i'll be more than happy to help you guys in getting directions as to where it is. I'll have more information for it later. Thanks!

No it's not really near San Diego. It's a little over an hour away from San Diego. It's more closer to Disneyland.

Hey Videl! Thanks for starting this thread! I hope that more people find it! I'll be sure to be there! ^_- … I kinda have to huh? As co-host and all! Wheee! Partay!!! I promise people that we'll have fun. Bring stuff to entertain self and others and it'll be great. I'm planning on ordering some pizzas and we'll go from there! Please!!! If you are in the Whittier - Fullerton - Brea - La Habra - Santa Fe Springs - Downey - Montebello - Cerritos area where-abouts you can make it! The park is very green and nice and purty!!! Halloween is bound to be packed with stuff to do, like bands needing to play at football games (VIDEL!!!) amongst other things, so we picked Sunday the 26th! Times is planned as 1pm - afternoon - yeah … that’s a good time. Cosplay Volleyball! Or tag! … Or or or or … Freeze tag!!! Wheee! I'm all giddy!!! GO ME! Come! PM either Videl or I if you have questions or requests! As for food … snacks would be a big help. I am estimating, from the posse that we know have no lives and thrive for all things anime, we might have a group of 10 already … and that’s cool and all … but the more people the better. We hope more cosplayers come out and have fun. No Cosplay … No Problem … We Love All Peoples! Come and Have Fun!

Hey there, there is really no need to sign up, altough if you want a little form I'm sure I can put one together to keep you busy. hehehe! ^_^ I'm not even sure of the exact directions to the park. @_@ So, I hope that Videl has checked the boards. Its best to PM her and have her email you directions. She'll also post them on the board by the end of the week hopefully. Thanks for the interest in our little gathering. I hope you have fun if you join us! ^_^ Be hearing from ya!

I realize some of you want directions to Creek Park. I would apprieciate if you told me the area where you live and I can give you the directions. Don't forget you can invite other people to come with you too. Just be sure to tell us how many though. I really want to calculate how many people will be showing up so we can order food. If you want you can also bring your own food so we probably make it a potluck. And do forget to put in ideas and suggestions to help make this seem more interesting! Arigato!

I managed to find Creek Park in the Thomas Bros. guide. I hope you're talking about La Mirada Creek Park.
Just in case, I live down the street from UCI.
Hope to see you there!

Videl-chan
10-19-2003, 10:58 AM
Ok....I'm pretty sure of these directions for the person who lives by UCI. If you take the 5 north and get off at Manchester, make a left and keep going until you find Beach Blvd. Make a right here and go down until you find La Mirada Blvd. and make a left. Once you reach Santa Getrudes, make a right all the way down and after you pass Imperial Hwy, on your left side, there should be La Mirada Creek Park. Park in the driveway and hopefully you'll be able to see all of us.

I'll get to the directions for the Beverly Hills person A.S.A.P.

Thanks...

P.S. If my directions are wrong, I'll be sure to correct them very quickly.

The ADJ. Bishoujo Gathering is now only a week away. We have 16 potential attendees. And that’s just great for me!!! If we get more then I'd be so proud of our first planned event. If we get less then I'm still proud that we through together an event that people got to enjoy! So please come if you are available!!!

Directions from Beverly Hills -
Take the I 5 South
Exit North onto Valley View
R onto Imperial Hwy
L onto Santa Gertrudes
L into La Mirada Creek Park

As for food … we have several options. Either we only have munchies and drinks at the park itself and then go offsite for like a main fast food meal. Or really rely on people to bring main dishes as well. I'll have donuts for you Trigun cosplayers!!! If you need or want special order foods please bring!!! If you can't bring food then maybe a small monetary donation so I could run to a near supermarket and pick up some supplies once we get there.

Now the fun stuff!!! I've been told (from the many voices in my head) that we should play freeze tag!!! And that’s a must!!! Also, there is a nifty amphitheater to perform. If you have a little skit that you have already worked out, or would like to make up a special new one, we could throw an impromptu talent show presentation. It will have an anything goes kinda style to it. No prizes will be awarded, but applause will be given in abundance I guarantee it! Please some one have a volleyball. I don't wanna buy my own. That’s my wish list for the gathering! I'll search around if I must! Also, a CD player is needed. But we'll work that out. Bring your own CDs. We'll be sure to play as much as what people bring.

The area is great for pictures. Come in costume and with camera in hand for photo opportunities. Mind you there won't be like a professional photographer or anything, this is just for the heck of it. Need nice pics of you in costume and don't want to take the pics in your living room. Then come on out and join us. It'll be a great time. I promise. If not, then you can pelt me vegetables shortly after. ^_^

That is all for now. Please, if you have questions email me or Videl-chan! Thanks so much! Hope to see ya there!

Awesome, I'll porbably come. Is there any specific food you need? I'll try and bring what I can.

But don't expect much... Being a self-aware town, all there is in Beverly Hills is sushi and mexican ^_^

I'll see what I can get a lot of.

And if you want, I have a few things lying around, like some wooden or show (looks metal and make for a realistic fight but couldn't hurt a fly) swords. Maybe a little competition?

The offer of food is really good to hear! Now we won't starve!!! Wheee!!! Chips and soda, or even a little sushi platter if you want. That would be super neat!!! So glad that you'll be able to make it!!!

As for the swords ... ummm ... seeing as it isn't a controled convention setting with security to check the weapons and stuff, I don't want to totally freak out other people at the public park. Bring them at risk of having park security maybe giving us some hassle. I'd suggest against it.

10-20-2003, 02:23 PM
I'll see what I can bring.

I just hope I can finish my costume before then... I hate school so much.

Anyways, is there any kind of music you want? I can try and bring a CD or two.

Lastly, if I bring a sushi platter, what kinds of sushi should I bring? I'm not very partial to sushi, so I wouldn't know. ^_^

And where in the park will it be? If I drive up, will I get a view of you guys? I don't wanna have to run around looking for you in costume, I would look like a freak =P

If we have a little competition with sword fights, i wouldn't mind bringing my kendo practice sword to spar a little bit.

Any music and sushi will be awesome.

Right as go go into the park through the driveway, you should pretty much be able to see where we're set up by looking down the hill opposite from the wall, the ampitheater is directly down there. We most likely will put up signs to direct where we are. There are bathrooms at the park, but they are park bathrooms so they're messy, but it's good to know about them.

p.s. sorry i haven't written anything lately because it's "hell week" for my school play this week, my PSATs, "0" periods, band practice, and Parade this Saturday. So sorry if I dont get back to you quickly. wish me luck!

It doesn't matter if your dad comes, the more the merrier, but as for the cds, "let's keep it PG" pretty much, make sure the music doesn't have any explicit words, k?

Woo, I pulled a Tashigi from One Piece costume out of my closet. I'll be wearing that. I have lots of anime CDs to bring and I'll find some type of food to bring, also. What's the head count so far?

Videl-chan
10-24-2003, 05:10 PM
Our Gathering will be going from 1:00 p.m. to probably when it gets dark or later. We wont be staying too late since some people have work or school the next day.

So far there might be 20+ people going.

So hopefully I'll see you guys there and dont forget, if any of you ppls have games for us to play or a ball like a volleyball, please bring!

And don't forget, there is an ampitheater so if you guys want to put a little skit together for fun (no prizes, sorry!) do so. I believe Jubei-chan and I will be doing a skit. We're not too sure.

If you guys also have a portable cd player as it is hard to find a good one, please bring and inform us. So, ttyl!

We should be expecting … does math in head … hold on … let me get a piece of paper … back … about 20. Plus a few extra guests of people, but that’s totally cool with us! Costumes I know for sure will be there are Wolfwood )male and female), Vash (male and female), Legato, and Meryl (Trigun), Yomiko x 2 (ROD), Chii (Chobits), man in yukata possibly ^_-, Chichiri (Fushigi Yuugi), Quatre (Gundam Wing), Yahiko!!! (Kenshin), Sakura (CCS), S. Saturn (S Moon), Arucard (Hellsing) and others. That’s all I know for sure. Don't be scared by all the Triguners. It can't be helped. Its just too much fun! ^_^ Me? I'll be fem Vashy and Meryl. I'm a pro at changing in the car. I don’t mind. I want to take some pics with the other Vash and Nicks!!! Hehehe! New wave gun action!

Spiffy! I live in Whittier, I might stop by for a while. How long do you guys intend to hang out there?

As for the total running time of the event. We should be there until the sun goes down. I figure starting at 1pm and end like 6 ish. Some where around that time seems resonable. If you guys want to plan to go to Denny's afterwards I'd be totally up for it! I love pancakes! Or maybe raid a Krispy Kreme! Hehehe! Bad donut thoughts!

Did anyone check out the Weather Channel lately?
It is going to be in the 90's on that Sunday!
Just a heads-up to those who'll be attending in costume, and don't forget to set your clocks back one hour the night before (Daylight Savings Time ends around 2AM Sunday monring).
I'll be bringing some sodas and water for the picnic.

That was fun!
Wasn't as hot as I feared (remember the Mixer back in mid-August in Little Tokyo?), and the cosplaying was clever, even without the ampitheater.
Plus, the Fruits Basket viewing afterward was a nice touch (I think I left my jacket there, though)!
Let's try to do that sort of thing again, maybe at the birthday party coming up this December! Hopefully by then the fires should be out!

Hello Peoples! Once again it is I, Jubei-chan, of much Chibi fame, here to post about the little shindig that came and went this past Sunday! … >_> … <_< … >_> … Ok … that was lame even by my standards. Chicken! Have no fear, parental units usually mean well when they are checking up on who is throwing certain gatherings. No fault to them. But yeah, when another event is planed more contact info will be made available.

Oh yeah … 2 more pics were added to Allyunion's gallery … and one is my favorite … I think it should be called, "No More Fun!" … or … "You Better Stop Right Now Before You Poke Someones Eye Out" But those are just friendly suggestions! ^_^

It’s the cute Tohru-chan!!! ::GLOMP:: You're here!!! Oh wow!!! You rock my socks hun!!! Thanks for coming! And don't be a stranger … speak up more!!! Hehehehe! And don't worry the Neko is recovering (a bit dirty still) but recovering! And yes there is another cosplay gathering in the works planned by the mysterious ADJ. Bishoujo ::dun dun dunnn:: Muah ha ha ha ha ha!!! First there will be Cosplay Birthday! And then the "We're Too Poor to go to Anime Expo: Tokyo" festivities … so have no fear! That we are hoping for a January date … allows Videl and I more time to plan. This little shindig was put together really … right after Ani-Magic … yup … Ani-Magic settled our long over due Anime Expo withdrawls, and then we needed stuff like the Mile High Comics gathering and our own brand of local cosplay fun! So, keep your eyes open to the boards for info. My personal pics will be up … eventually … I'm a bad person … I'm on the computer all the time … but I hardly do any real productive work … go figure ::shrugs:: oh well … that’s a long enough rant from me … so … until next time … one more glomp for Tohru-chan … hehehe … ::GLOMP::

Oh yeah … Firefox … no jacket found! Sorry!

OK, it's a light beige Eddie Bauer jacket that might be in one of the living room closets. In the inside jacket pocket, you'll find a cigar, and in one of the handwarmer pockets is a torch lighter.
Hope that helps!

TOHRU!!!!!! ::super-glomps Tohru:: Come! Come out to the sun...AHHH!!! LIGHT!!! Anyways, I think we all need to do something together soon. If you live in or near Huntington Park, on November 22 there will be their Christmas Parade. I will be performing there and it will be broadcasted on TV. So hope you guys could see it. And if you can't make sure something is planned. I need to partay! ::does the happy dance:: Well, I'll talk to you guys later! In the meantime...

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble--
Something wicked this way comes
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing, --
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
