The next event(s) for Carolina Cosplay Revolution are:

December 13, 2003 at Crabtree Valley Mall (Directions (http://www.crabtree-valley-mall.com/location/images/raleighmaplarge.gif)) - 1:00PM.
Meeting at Suncoast, downstairs in front of the food court, across the from the elevator. And incase your wondering, the arcade is called "Cyberstation" I think, and is at the side of the food court beside the Hurricanes Hockey Team store called "The Eye".
Open cosplaying, if you want to wear Christmas themed or colored costumes then :D
:chatah: Notice!: DDR Faery Spice is looking for a ride to the event from Charlotte, and would greatly appreshate it if anyone could help her out!

_______ :bigtu:

My Origional Post
This is a long thread. @_@ Too long to read all the way through...could someone recap for me - when/where is this "Crabtree" event taking place? ^_^;;
The crabtree mall event is so far scheduled for the 13th if thats good with everyone, a time hasn't been set but we need to hurry up and get this down. So everyone check your calenders :D Crabtree Mall is a good old mall in raleigh where this christmas thing is scheduled

anyways, don't worry, the first post in the thread is kept up to date with information about date and time and location and all that good stuff, and most of the stuff before here is about the last gathering

I think we should do it in the morning if thats good for everone?
and how about meeting at the Arcade or the Suncoast, the arcade at Crabtree is in the side of the food court next to "The Eye" the hurricanes hockey team store and is called Cyberstation, and the Suncoast is downstairs across from the elevator infront of the food court

Tomo

I think we should meet at Suncoast. ^___^ Just because it's sorta in a central part of the mall and wouldn't be so confusing for everyone. And I'm definately all for the 13th of December.

I think its on Gleenwood Avenue (Raleigh). I could give you better directions than that but where are you comming from?
(PM me if you'd like LOL)

And yeah, I say we met at Suncoast too ^^ Like Tomo said, its in the center of the mall and you can't miss it. Only sad thing about the arcade is there's only one DDR machine ;-; ::sniffe:: But there's a big food court!! ^^

Crap! I work on the 13th! But I'm going to ask my boss if I can change my work hours and work on a different day. Wish me luck.

Tomo
11-25-2003, 09:41 PM
Yuuuus Farmboybob! You've gotta be able to come! .____.

Tomo
11-28-2003, 11:22 PM
Oouh, I totally forgot about this but . . . The 13th of December at the Crabtree Valley Mall, there is supposed to be a DDR tournament in the arcade. O_o So . . . meeting at the arcade would be madly insane and don't plan on playing any DDR until after the tournament is over. It's from 12 - ?? Just figured I'd let everyone know. ;_;

EDIT:: Does anyone care if I delete this thread and start a new sticky for Upcoming Events since this one is a) very long and b) It'll help avoid the confusion. :D

Man it'll be nearly impossible for me to come. (Crabtree)
1) no costume (can I be the photographer?)
2) I don't have a ride (Farmboybob I need help here)
3) I work every sat. (I may arrange something though)
4) Sorry about being late about everything I haven't been on the board in awhile

1) You don't have to worry about that. You don't have to dress up unless you want too. :D

I can't really help with 2 and 3 but 4, I understand, no big deal.

Quadrain you worry too much :D, just see if you can get off work and I can give you a ride
and yeah, come photograph your heart out ^_^

I hope I can cosplay to this one, but hopefully I get my lisence on the 12th instead of the 14th like I think, I forget when it is... and if I can't drive myself I can't cosplay.

Tomo: If we go there in the morning then, well.. with the tourney it wouldn't be good for DDR at all, most of the day. but there would be a LOT more people around to, and people who would be more likely to, recognise and notice our costumes :D

Farmboybob: :D Good luck man... and.. you wouldn't happen to have any makeup I could borrow could ya'? XD I didn't think so..

Ookami05: Yeah it's kinda in the middle of Raleigh down there, check here (http://www.crabtree-valley-mall.com/location/images/raleighmaplarge.gif) and see if that helps

yeah this thread is cluttered, I'll split it from my last post.

Farmboybob
12-01-2003, 04:17 PM
Ok, do you know what time we should meet up. Because if it's in the afternoon, then I can change my work hours to that mourning and I will be able to go, and then take Quadrain with me.

evaneko
12-01-2003, 04:46 PM
How about we have it about 11-ish?

Tomo
12-01-2003, 08:41 PM
Sounds good to me. :D I haven't decided if I'm going to cosplay or not. If so, I have a feeling it'll be Chihiro instead of Pucca. (No Time!! >_>) So, yeah, 11 sounds good to meeee.

Inamichan
12-02-2003, 02:08 PM
Gaah, all of these events are at such horrible times for me. XD; I get out of school and have to take my stuff out of the dorms on the 13th...and my birthday is the 14th! :D Soo...yeah, I can't come. ;_; Maybe next time, though!

evaneko
12-02-2003, 04:25 PM
blarg. dunno if I will be cosplaying. none of my costumes are really all that great for december cosplay... and I hate being cold :P

Dracos
12-02-2003, 11:29 PM
You can Borrow my Big Black leather long coat ^_^ I don't get cold. (If I don't do the Goth Dante thing again.. = \ )
Bad new's though.. I might not be able to come. I swear, my family has perfect timing when it comes to my plans.. ::Sarcastic Laugh..:: My aunt and my 11 yearold cousin Philip are coming up, and my Aunt from Raliegh and her twins, 6 years old each ... *Cries* are coming over also..
So I doubt I will get to come, because my Grandpa will be all... "Im not driving there with the family here, sorry. "
Pray that I will be able to fend off all these little Fiendish cousins.. *Grabs his Masamune* >=D

12-03-2003, 11:47 AM
We could do it around 1pm, would that be okay for ya Farmboy? and then that would leave time for the people who travel and have to travel back afterwards.
i'm considering not wearing my christmas costume ;; cauz of the hassle involved and yeah, i'll wear a santa hat :D but I haven't decided against it. depends on what everyone else is doing.

Sorry Dracos, maybe you can come next time.

So who all knows they can go, who is planning, and what not. And what times would work for everyone during the day, so we can pick what would work best for the whole group.

I'd be able to come anytime during the day I believe.

Dracos
12-03-2003, 12:09 PM
Oh yes, Very ooc.. but (Can anyone see my Signature picture? I think I did something wrong.. o.o )

Inamichan
12-03-2003, 01:58 PM
Your pic's on Geocities, right? ^^; You can't direct-link to image files from geocities. You'd have to use another server, or change the filename to a .TXT extension.

And I won't be able to go :( Maybe next time.

Terumi
12-03-2003, 10:21 PM
Somebody wear thier costume ::Sniffle:: Please? ^^;; I'm gonna go as Haku (Naruto) and maybe bring a hat too. ^^

Ookami05
12-04-2003, 08:32 AM
Hmm i think i'll be able to come this time. and I'll probably be bringing my friend/s too XD just 2.

Link Arroway
12-04-2003, 10:35 AM
Ookami05: The more the merrier ^_^

I'm going to try to cosplay if its possible ^^; but.. hmm.. it all depends and I haven't figured it out yet! x_x If I don't do any full costume, I'll just do something..

KawaiiEdea
12-04-2003, 06:37 PM
I think I might actually get to go after all ^_^; Turns out I'm going to be going back to NC way sooner than I thought. I'll check those directions to see where this mall is..And maybe we should just forget the whole like..'just throw a santa hat on' idea thing.. or like...if your not going to wear a costume just wear something with x-mas colors and then the ppl that do wear a costume don't have to 'theme' themselves? Just an idea. Don't yell at me o.o .I don't really care, I made some custom boot thingies to wear with a costume so it can be all red and green and stuff. Sooo..if I go I'll be Rinoa. With a jacket. *brr*..^^; oh and expect my brother to make an appearance again *ahem* emphasis on 'brother' ....hah

Zeruda
12-04-2003, 06:45 PM
Yay! I plan on comming :D (no, really this time ^_^;) I'll be dressed as Toboe from wolfs rain (or as good as I can get it) He's pretty.. red and.. greeney, I guess O_o;

RHIshida
12-05-2003, 04:58 PM
I'm going to attempt to make it. I don't know if I will be able to. (You know, my parents and all -.-;) Oh, and this Sunday I get to ride on my school's float in the Zebulon Christmas Parade since I'm the vice-president of the Student Council. :D Anybody wanna check it out if possible? ^_^?

Damn, looks like fun. Wish I could come x_X *waddles around in circles wondering if there will ever be anything in Charlotte*

Farmboybob
12-06-2003, 08:24 PM
Ok, so I was able to switch workdates with a friend that works with me so I can be there at any time on Sat. And that means Quadrain will most likely be there too.

P.S. Brian, I'm lovin' your homestar bladen sprite, that rocks.

LadyXenie
12-06-2003, 09:02 PM
Sadly I won't be able to make it...I gotta work and there's no getting around it..Sorry!! ^_^ But take lots of pictures please

Kytri
12-07-2003, 04:19 PM
I'll try and make it. I'll probably be dressed as Quistis or an original character since I don't have many other costumes that are suitable for cold weather. There's no way I'll have Alucard done by then.

Tomo
12-07-2003, 08:11 PM
Argh, sorry I haven't been able to post much. I've been sick (again!). Bleh. Anyway . . . not sure if I'm gonna cosplay or not. I have Chihiro but it's not really Christmas-y. (Ok, if I've said something about this earlier, sorry. I don't remember but I feel like I have, so there. :B) Whoooo knows. I plan on coming unless I am still sick (I'm getting another fever. >_>) and stuff. :3 1 pm works too. I don't really care.

Link Arroway
12-07-2003, 09:15 PM
Ahhh, tomo get well :( Sleep sleep sleep and water and yeah!

Alright well does everyone want to go at 1pm? or get started earlier if people are able to? Looks like this Saturday is final, so get ready everyone! Don't forget.

EDIT: Updated the first post in the this new thread.

12-07-2003, 10:06 PM

12-07-2003, 11:07 PM
Tomo better take lots of good heath items, potions, cookies, brunches, bars, candies, and yummies. :D We better see you there Saturday! :D

I found a way I can cosplay, and my parentals will be none the wiser! :D
I just wear my costume under my clothes (yes, I did it at Neko when I went to the 7-11)
wear my bookbag, containing my hat, wig, brush, fake boobs, and shoes xD
Altho I dunno if I can fit it all in my bag, and I have no makeup and could use it :O

Hrmm.. I may get my lisence the day before the gathering, or the day after, haha :D I forget but I'm going to find out (hopefully) tommarow, if I can drive myself there, then I probably will have a lot less trouble cosplaying.
The reason I do, is because my mom just don't like it, and I don't want to upset her :|

As an alternate, I'm going to prepare, Christmas Shinji! Shinji + Christmas hat ^^

About to ask my parents (boss at work) if I could go...:pisses in pants:...j/k

So that's what happened to Farmboybob.
Hey Farmboybob John said he's gonna kill you if you embarass him if front of his mom and sister again.

RHIshida
12-09-2003, 03:25 AM
I could just wear my Futaba Shimeru Schoolboy costume and put a christmas hat on it and be Christmas Futaba :D (Which gave me an idea for next year's Nekocon. Christmas Kaze! XF)

Terumi
12-09-2003, 02:39 PM
For anyone who is gonna cosplay this weekend - who do you plan on cosplaying? ^^

Tomo
12-09-2003, 04:51 PM
Hmmmm . . . I have my Chihiro costume and my Kimono. Not exactly sure. O_o!

Link Arroway
12-09-2003, 07:27 PM
Hopefully I'll get to wear XMas Rei, if not, well oh well, I'm not going to let it get me down :D
What about you Terumi?

Terumi
12-09-2003, 08:00 PM
I was thinking about my Naruto Haku costume... but I miss my Mikako one ^^;;; I've never seen another Voices of a Distant Star cosplayer so I got rather attatched to it.

Farmboybob
12-10-2003, 10:25 AM
I don't think I will have anything ready for Saturday so I doubt I'll be cosplaying.

God, I hope I get better. This is day 4 of the flu and I've had a constant temp of about 103F. I feel like crap, and I'm drugged out (I'm taking like 8 different types of medicine). :(

Link Arroway
12-10-2003, 10:33 AM
Seems like the cold weather is hitting our immune systems x_x
I hope I don't have the flu, but I don't think so.. I got my flu shot ^_^ I got a little bug I think. Was out last friday in the cold and the next day my stomach was upset the next day, but it only lasted that day and I think its because I had like a soda an hour and that was because I was up for 24 hours, drinking a soda can an hour. But I caught a slightly yucky cold, a little more than usually agrivating, but not really that bothersome, so pretty much a cough now and then, :D

Stay warm farmboy, tomo, and the rest of you and get/stay well :D

evaneko
12-10-2003, 11:44 AM
I should be able to make it... it all depends on how the studying for my physics exam is going. If I am able to go I won't be in costume...

Link Arroway
12-10-2003, 11:52 AM
Good luck Evaneko! :D

Terumi
12-10-2003, 02:39 PM
LOL I think that we cosplayers must have horribe immune systems ^^;; I've had some sort of bug since Saturday and I missed two days of school x-x;;;; But I'm getting better ^^ I'm come'n rain or shine - healthy or ::COUGH COUGH COUGH:: ^^ Yes! Gonna be there!

KawaiiEdea
12-10-2003, 03:12 PM
Ou..I hope everyone who's sick gets to come ;_; but if you really are feeling bad on saturday,...I won't kill you if you decide not to go. >D Is everyone or mostly everyone still coming? I fear I'll get there and no one will show up o.o...that and I'll be as tall as a giraffe XD (*has to wear boots with costume*) ah well. Oh and are we going to do the same thing as last time and wear our red AZ tags? Or do you think the fact that we're the only ones cosplaying will give it away? ;D

Lovelyangel_81
12-10-2003, 03:51 PM
That's a good idea! I think that's a easy way to recognize people. If no one is in costume. ^^

I am keeping my fingers cross that I able to go.

I have a question?

Does a Raleigh bus goes to Crabtree Mall?

Tomo
12-10-2003, 05:46 PM
Yeah! I like that idea about wearing our AZ thingers. Muwahahhaa, we are gonna freak the heck outta this mall! >:B!!!!!!!

Lovelyangel_81: ;____;!!!!! I'm not exactly sure but I have seen busses go to the mall. ._.!

Edit: Removed my comment about busses. It looked funny to me. o_O But then again I DID have a 500 something blood sugar. :/

quadrain61
12-10-2003, 05:50 PM
Yep I use it as a key chain...got three Ballys keycard, one Sheraton Keycard, Animazement 03 pass, Neckocon 03, Plushie con 3.0 (thanks Link), and three keys all on that little thing. And I dunno If I can come yet.


Hey wait there's that locksmith/ shoe repair next door. Maybe I'll check the store out for any key duds they have.


And busses go there. call and check it out.

Farmboybob
12-10-2003, 09:30 PM
Awesome, my temperature has finally started falling. So I can say it's almost a definate I will be better by Saturday and I will be able to go.

And wearing the AZ pass thing sounds like a good idea.
And Quadrain, your new avatar gives me the creeps.

Link Arroway
12-11-2003, 10:48 AM
Alright, thats awesome Farmerboy! :D
And good idea, wearing AZ passes :D I keep all my passes saved securely hanging from a speaker in my room.
I hope no one else gets stick, just stick it out and stay warm for the next .. day or so!
And get well Tomo :D You can shake that bug.
Wear whichever costume is prettier, like the Kimono! :D

edit: look at all the :Ds!

Tomo
12-11-2003, 02:39 PM
Haha. Silleeeh Link. :B

BLAaaRrRGh. My Mom says I might not be able to go because I've been so sick. :/

I. am. heart broked. T_______________________________T

12-11-2003, 03:20 PM
Tomo: Oh no. Not a second time you can't come. Grab all the medicine that will heal you.

Farmboybob: About time, Uzzell isn't understanding what I'm saying so I want to pull out an AK on him...shhhh.

And I had to replace my avatar becuase I was mistaken for a female by having a scene from "Please Twins" ep. 2.

Link Arroway: That's why I'm staying home from from so I won't potentialy (sp) get sick and staying away from everyone school.


Do not give Link any pixie stixs because @ nekocon he kept poking me with it.
Mom said I can go but I dunno if I can go yet since her decisions are somewhat caprice

Link Arroway
12-11-2003, 04:14 PM
No pixie ;-;, but :| its only of lack of pixie people for pixie poking! I only poked you like, well maybe a million times I forget what happened... o_o;;;;;;;

So before we go prep our costumes and head on off,lol,who's going for sure and who isn't o_O? *shakes fist at the darned flu bug* Of coarse..how typical is it for parental units to change their minds at the last minute. Ha. Well..I'm going for sure,so I hope you all can get there saftly! See ya tomorrow! :bigtu:

Farmboybob
12-12-2003, 06:23 PM
DANG IT! I'm not really sick anymore, but my mother says I still could possibly give you guys the flu and is making me stay home. :angry:

Well, I guess that is the safest choice. Take pictures and have lots of fun. I guess I'll see you people next time around.

Terumi
12-12-2003, 06:51 PM
Ok so I'm gonna wear the Haku costume because it's so cold out x-x;;...


Can't wait to see you guys there!!!!! ^^ ::hugs:: And for those of you who cant come - I'm sorry ;-; Get well soon!!!

12-12-2003, 07:04 PM
Waii. T_______T I can't go either but I'm creating a plan . . . a plan of ALL plans to maybe go say "Hi!" to everyone. :3 Let's hope it'll work.

quadrain61
12-12-2003, 07:20 PM
Now doubt I'll be going since they need me at work and now I don't have a ride. If I do go, I MIGHT me there after 7:00.

Link Arroway
12-12-2003, 10:30 PM
7pm? long time quadrain :o I dunno how long even i'm going to stay, hrmm didn't think about say.

I'm definately going still ^_^

Farmerbob: :( You should come, its not like we are going to rub up all over you, and half the other people at the mall this season might have the flu anyways. Thats why most people stay clean in the winter and so wouldn't catch anyways :D

Ookami05
12-12-2003, 10:32 PM
Well HOPEFULLY I'll be there! Me and my friend will be going (taking turns driving) so where are we meeting again?

Link Arroway
12-12-2003, 10:33 PM
In front of suncoast :D
downstairs in front of the food court, across the from the elevator. And incase your wondering, the arcade is called "Cyberstation" I think, and is at the side of the food court beside the Hurricanes Hockey Team store called "The Eye"

Ookami05
12-12-2003, 10:53 PM
;-; due to the fact that its a really LONG drive to that mall. Me and my friend have come to the conclusion that we will not be able to make it :/ Maybe next time. sorry >_<

Terumi
12-13-2003, 08:39 PM
Hey guys! ^^ I'm back and I'm gonna try and upload the pics tonight or tomorrow. ::hugs:: I had such an awesome time hanging out! But I miss you guys already ;-;
