View Full Version : That Japan Video Thing Next Week
10-21-2002, 01:38 AM
For those of you who live near or in the bay area, Japan Town is having a costume thing next Sunday on the 27th. From what I've heard, those who are in costume are elligable (sic?) to win raffle prizes. Yeah, just show up in a costume and they'll give you raffle tickets. First prize is a dvd player. ^^;
Anyone planning on showing up? It's supposed to start at about 3PMish.
I would go, but I would need a ride from Sonoma County to there. ^^; If I was going, I'l most likely go as Pepper (if I got the wings...) or Karen Kasumi.

I think I will be there, probably Squall or Johnny.
The drawing itself will be at 3:30pm, you have to be there to win according to the flyer.
The prizes are:
1st prize (1 person): DVD Player (region free)
2nd prize (2 persons): Armitage Limited Edition Lunch Box
3rd prize (3 persons): One DVD from the latest release
Yes, the last prize is a little confusing. :)

If I magically find my wig in a week, I'll be Kuja. (I'll have to change in the bathroom, mind you)
Uhh... Maybe I'll bring out Zell again or something dumb. XD Whee!

Mmmm.. tempted to go. Maybe as Ayako.
I'll join you in that bathroom Michi... I haven't figure out how to drive with wings yet... :)

Ahhh Ziggy mentioned this - I really want to go - perhaps I will alert the head of my anime club? I know my Spanish teacher was upset when noone (ironically) new about the festival at the Metreon.

Hi everyone. It was great seeing all of you again. Hehe, man, I can't believe how many anime events have happened this month.
Anyway, I took a few pictures from the Japantown gathering this Sunday.
Hope to see you all again on Halloween! :) Then maybe I can actually take a break. Whew!
