Date: December 6, raindate Dec. 7 (event still on in case of snow)
Time: 2:00 PM till dinnertime
Place: Frog Pond, Boston Common, Boston, MA
Activity: Ice skating on the Frog Pond (bring your own skates or rent there)
Theme: Seasonal holiday variations on your favorite magical girls and friends
Sponsor: NE_COSP
Contact: Koumori

What's a magical girl?: If she has a secret identity, a talking animal sidekick, and/or mysterious powers granted her for the good of the universe/mankind, especially *by* said talking animal sidekick, she's probably a magical girl. Examples include Sailor Moon and company, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, Saint Tail, Wedding Peach, Card Captor Sakura.

What do you mean, "seasonal holiday variations"?: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Devi Vrat, the winter solstice, whatever you like. If you know of an artbook or other "official" source for a magical girl in holiday finery, that's great; or you can go from a doujinshi or other illustration, or come up with your own original interpretation!

Age restriction: Due to the nature of ice skating, request no cosplayers under 14. Cosplayers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult who will be responsible for them, or bring a note from a parent accepting responsibility for them.

Awww, man! I'm neither magical, nor a girl, nor a skater. See you at the next one, maybe... :(

So come take pictures! :)

Costumed non-girls are welcome if they're related to a magical girl series - we have at least one Tuxedo Mask planning to attend, any of the guys from Card Captor Sakura in a holiday version would be fine, etc.

Don't forget that villains work too!

Wouldn't Prince Diamond be snazzy with snowflakes?

Why not sign up on the NE_Cosp mailing list at www.necosp.org? The event was hatched and announced several months ago there, and new local photoshoots are often devised there.

I'm afraid that the theme of this shoot is specifically seasonal, and in fairness to the folks who have been working on their themed costumes, I'd like to keep it that way. But there will be plenty of new shoots (anime and otherwise) coming up in the spring months. We'll look forward to seeing you!

PatrickD, don't worry! I'm sure we can throw together some sort of super action shonen special shoot! (CHOU!!!!) Since, you know, I cosplay a chick from DBZ and you do Renamon and all...and I'm sure we can rope Mara into it somehow by making her wear a Dorothy costume...cause Big O is action. :DDDD

I will have to ponder this further.

Wow. Terrimon so cute!

And I just realized that Thursday is Thanksgiving, making the gathering the saturday after this one. Annnnd that means I TOTALLY will not have a costume made. Hopefully I will at least be able to attend, and if so, I'll wear something Juuhachi related so ya'll know who I am. Unless there is going to be another short girl with short hair. :)

Rukawa just told me about this today so I'll probably go, just to take pictures though, since I don't have any magical girl type of costume ^^;;;

There's going to be quite a few of us without costumes actually. Here it is my idea, then I go and get too sick to do anything but veg around the house and force myself to work scaring all of the customers away with my cough.

Me I'm actually working on my costume right now. ^_^;; Just finished the skirt. I'm doing a sorta x-mas version of Makoto's school uniform with some slight changes here and there. I'm not going to wear a shin length pleated skirt. =3

Gr. I wanted to do a Christmas themed costume... sometime... and I had a good idea. But NO TIME! If only there was another weekend where I could throw this together, but alas.

Next year, next year... (Like a Halloween costume... gotta get one of those done someday.)

I was thinking of having an open holiday shoot in RI somewhere for people who didn't want to do the magical girl theme, but with me being sick and the fact that I have no time this month at all that didn't happen. ~_~

Due to weather events beyond my threshhold of natural power, I'm afraid I have to cancel the shoot this weekend. The snow is not expected to subside until Sunday evening when it turns into freezing rain and sleet...Not really the ideal driving conditions for anyone who was planning on using their own wheels to get to Boston this weekend.

Sorry for this inconvenience everyone, we can discuss another date for the event.

In such a mood to go skating. ^_^;; Please take care for those coming by car and such(me taking el train =P). I'll be the one in the red fuku and legwarmers. Well meet at the same time, same place. I caution those arriving from outside of boston. Till then.
