Who?:NE Cosplayers
What?:Photoshoot/Otaku Unite @ Film Festival
Where?: Fairmount Park @ the Japanese Teahouse
When?:April 17th

1-Meeting between 12 and 1. Feel free to get there a little earlier than that if you want ^^.
2-We're heading over to the Otaku Unite premiere at the Film Festival afterwards so be prepared ^_^.
3-No theme! Anything goes! Just remeber we'll be in a park where kids might be so........^^;
Hey. I just thought since the NYC/NY area people are having a photoshoot in the spring, why don't we have one? I'll take any place suggestions. And I was thinking sometime in April. And do you think we should have a theme? Post anything you wanna say about this here! Thanks for your time ^^.

03-07-2004, 11:26 PM
Would it be too much for me to beg that it be somewhere in the metropolitan Philly area? Thats the only way I'd be able to get to it, as I am a pathetic 23 year old without a license who depends on SEPTA way too much for her own good?

03-08-2004, 04:36 PM
XD hehe, no repeats of the last picnic, neh? i don't feel like running for a bus down a highway either ;_;

03-08-2004, 05:13 PM
Hehe yea obviously I was thinking somewhere in the Philly area lol XD;. Any spots you'd like to suggest in particualr? Lol ^^;. I was thinking Longwood Gardens but thats too far I think...so suggest! ^_^

Hey phili is only an hour from me, that sounds like a good idea, I'll keep an eye on this topic for more info. ^^ ~~John

03-08-2004, 10:18 PM
MORRIS ARBORETUM!! It's really big (not as big as longwood though), has alot of different gardens & theme settings (for different pictures to match almost everyone's costume), It's right outside of Philly between Chestnut Hill/Mt. Airy area and Plymouth Meeting Township. The L bus goes there (now that the bridge is fixed it doesn't drop you off in front but it's just a short walk to the gate then a walk up the little hill thing) and you can get it from Olney Terminal, and the Broad St subway goes there, and a whole lot of other buses do too (the 26, 18, C, 55, L, 6, 8) or you could get the L bus from the Germantown Ave./Bethlehem pk trans. center (the 23, 77, 94, & R8 to Chestnut Hill West train). Yeah, can't drive & I live (well, grew up XD) near all of those Chestnut Hill/Mt. Airy SEPTA routes so I can pretty much find my way home from anywhere in the city.....sad, isn't it? XD Oh, and you have to pay like $8 to get in, but it's less if you're a student with an id.

http://www.business-services.upenn.edu/arboretum/ <--look at all the pretty stuff *.* If we have it in April, then they'll be having the Japanese Cherry Blossom Celebration too. I sound like......a brochure >.<

03-09-2004, 05:46 PM
Thanks for that idea Aisha! Once we get some more ideas, we'll have a vote for it ^^. Anymore suggestions? A preevious idea I got from Kayla was the Art Museum. But keep on giving ideas!! ^_____^

03-09-2004, 06:01 PM
Right near there is the Creek...ok that's what I call it, I don't know the darn official name of the place. XD Of course we'd probably get mucho dirty. XD But there's the woods, the river, a bridge, tons of places to take pics and it's for free (don't we all just LOVE that XD). Ok, just a suggestion. ^^; Of course a lot of ppl walk along there and we'd get some stares...

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-09-2004, 06:03 PM
...........Fairmount Park?

03-09-2004, 06:03 PM
Oh, and another idea I'd like to throw in is the Japanese Teahouse near the Art Museum...not sure what the admission charges are, we'd have to look into that.

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-10-2004, 07:58 PM
I wanna go there!! And there are 2 parks near my house: Tookany Creek Park and Burholme Park. Anymore ideas?

03-10-2004, 08:07 PM
Teahouse! Teahouse! Teahouse!...XD

At least, that's what I'm opting for.

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-13-2004, 02:04 PM
Ok well it seems like majority want the Japanese teahouse so it looks likes thats where its gonna be. Now when should we plan this for? April or May? And should we have a theme?

03-13-2004, 04:54 PM
April. I say go as what you feel like going as. XD I'm going to be Ayame...because pics of me in that costume near the teahouse would look great...since they have buildings like that in the Fruits Basket series. Now I just need to do some research. Does a picnic sound good to everyone? I brought that up in the PrussiaCon thread.

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-13-2004, 07:48 PM
Sounds good to me ^O^! Shall be funness! The weekends in April are:
April 3rd
April 10th
April 17th
April 24th

Those are Saturdays. The last Saturday I'm not available and not sure about the first Saturday. What sounds good for you people?

03-13-2004, 07:58 PM
Hmm...theme...theme.....spring-ish? Lots of pretty stuff. *.*

Xx Lulu xX
03-13-2004, 09:43 PM
Well id need at least a week to a week and a half notice so i could request off of work....^^

03-13-2004, 09:48 PM
Yeah, and I need to know so I can find a wig somehow.
{ Someone help X.X Lol. }

03-13-2004, 10:13 PM
Try witchwigs.com or a site like that. I got lucky with my two wigs. The one I got out of the "Things You Never Knew Existed" catalog and the other I got from Walgreen's lol.

03-13-2004, 10:19 PM
X.x I sorta will be broke, when I pay my dad for the Linkin Park tickets

03-13-2004, 10:40 PM

03-13-2004, 10:43 PM
X.x -Pouts.-... Need.. more stuff.. . { ALEX WHERES MY YUNA OUTFIT. }

03-14-2004, 12:12 AM
I'd love to try to make it if I could, a spring photoshoot would be really pretty. ^^

03-14-2004, 12:22 AM
YES YES it would.

03-14-2004, 11:03 AM
Just might want to avoid the weekend of animeboston.Which is april 9th to the 11th.Lots of people are going to that con for the weekend.

03-14-2004, 12:16 PM
Whenever, I'll be able to go ^^

03-14-2004, 12:59 PM
Okies, people. If we want to do the Teahouse we have to wait until May, when it opens. It seems to be a seasonal thing. Not sure what their photography rules are, we will have to check with that, as well. Hopefully we can also have some kind of picnic in the Fairmount Park section which is where the Teahouse is located within/near. Also by May, we are gauranteed nice weather, hopefully not TOO hot...

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-14-2004, 01:10 PM
Ok so which month is better for you all? April or May? If we did it in April we couldn't do the teahouse since it won't open (thats what I get from Janet's post anyway) and in May we could do it @ the teahouse.
And I did realize that ALOT of people are going to AnimeBoston so that weekend's out ^^;.

03-14-2004, 01:17 PM
Uh May . . .<---------------- Duh.
Didn't we just come up with the whole May thing.
And finally Amanda, me and your idea from long ago
{Member Christmas photoshoot that was postponed}
IS RE Poned Lol.

03-14-2004, 01:59 PM
RE poned? Lol Actually if you think about it this is completely diffrent since I opened it to all NE cosplayers, not just Philly cosplayers lol ^^;.
But anyway is May ok with everyone?

03-14-2004, 02:04 PM
May is good. For April we can also do something smaller, like a picnic in Fairmount Park. This way we have activities for BOTH months. Sound like a plan?

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-14-2004, 02:34 PM
o.o The last shoot wasn't just for Philadelphia, being some of my friends from Jersey were coming.
So nyah.

03-14-2004, 06:29 PM
Um, I've never been to Fairmount Park, but is there parking for those of us WITH cars? And May is bad for me - the first two weeks are finals and then I'm back home in Michigan for the summer... Might I suggest April 17th or 24th?

03-14-2004, 06:34 PM
May or April, doesn't matter, but I do have my Prom in May, and I do 'end' school soon in May, and Graduate in June 1st. {Rawr}
. . . . April I'm ok I think, I have nothing.
{ I might have exams, but I can still make anything }
The thing is who am I going to be by then!. Heh.

03-14-2004, 06:45 PM
April 17th and the first weekend of April are best for me. April 24th is my spring concert, the 2nd weekend of April I'll be down the shore for Easter, and the last weekend of April, I'm going to Girl Scout camp against my will.......*sigh*. And if May is bad for people then is April 17th ok?

03-14-2004, 07:04 PM
{ Amanda } Dude make me that SELPHIE thing!

03-14-2004, 08:10 PM

I can't wait!<3 Amanda you'll have to ride me, if that's ok
>> with your moma.

03-14-2004, 08:32 PM
Awesome! Ok so as it stands this is gonna be on April 17th @ Fairmount Park I guess since Janet said the teahouse won't be open yet ^^;. And just so you know I heard from Oshi the NE cosplayers picnic is in the planning stages ^^.
And yea Kayla you'd get a ride so be calm ^^. :p

Xx Lulu xX
03-14-2004, 08:34 PM
Well id need a costume...o_o; that could be a problem lol

03-14-2004, 08:36 PM
I loved that costume you wore @ Katsucon on Saturday ^_^. You are an awesome cosplayer Lulu! ^_^

03-14-2004, 08:38 PM
Hey guys, been a while. I'm curious to hear what's going on with our northeastern photo shoot so far.

03-14-2004, 08:39 PM
YES, now what are we all going to be dressing as.
I'd like to know what peoples ideas are.

Xx Lulu xX
03-14-2004, 08:40 PM
I loved that costume you wore @ Katsucon on Saturday ^_^. You are an awesome cosplayer Lulu! ^_^

^^ thank you, it wasnt mine though lol well i could always wear my Usagi school unifrom but with neptunes wig O_o;

03-14-2004, 08:42 PM
Well, how about a retro revival of some classic animes for a theme? Perhaps the 80's period when anime started maturing with more details. I'm probably going as Kaos so far. But most importantly, I'm curious as to where this event may take place so I can know ahead of time

03-14-2004, 08:55 PM
Hey Lulu, what do you think so far?

Xx Lulu xX
03-14-2004, 08:57 PM
^^ well id be game for it, id like to wear a costume before a con, so i think ill go

03-14-2004, 09:08 PM
Great! I think that might also give me some more time to think about it. I may not always be around online, but I'll try to stay in touch. All that's needed right now is a time, date, and location. I think I may have some friends interested for the shoot. I know of a great location for the photo shoot that may really be something to remember by that's for sure, heh.

03-14-2004, 09:09 PM
To answer the question where this is being held, its being held here in Philadelphia. ^________^.
Anyway I'm being someone from War of Genesis III! WH00T!

03-14-2004, 09:09 PM
wow, that's far for me.

03-14-2004, 09:14 PM
But out of curiosity, how are the beach scenes down there?

03-14-2004, 09:19 PM
o.o Need to know what I'm going to wear... -Twitchues.-

03-14-2004, 09:20 PM
I was thinking if it could be held up here, there's this great location in east hartford. The location I was thinking of is called light house point. Usually great for photography there with all the scenery. Very breathe taking, to be exact. Well, gotta go for now. Going out to a st'paddy's celebration at a local night club. My friend just srayed my hair green and painted my nails as well. Take care guys!

03-14-2004, 09:25 PM
I was thinking...
-Kagome { Inuyasha }
-Selphie Kingdom Hearts Verison { If Amanda lets me borrow the dress again }
-Yuna {Summoner if it's ready }

o.o Or something.
Not sure what to do;.;

03-14-2004, 09:47 PM
I might need a ride too! ^^; I wanna go to the Lolita thing *.* maybe my dad will take me....since he uses Amtrak alot...

03-14-2004, 10:11 PM
If your dad takes you, then take me with you.

03-14-2004, 11:42 PM
So are we currently set for April 17th at Fairmount Park in Philly? This is just going to be a general cosplay photoshoot, right?

I'll probably wear Full Moon's concert outfit again...or maybe Misaki, as she's such a cutie!

03-15-2004, 12:09 PM
just so you guys know...the teahouse is on city property, owned by the Philadelphia Horticultural Society. any picnics, or other planning must go down with them. and if you do plan to bring food, you must pay the picnic area fee. i heard it's around $50 for 4 hours. it would also be wise if you are going to take pictures within the teahouse, you most likely have to go through to my friend, Matt, who is head of the Teahouse now.

^^; i just wanted to inform you, so you can go through the legal processes properly.

03-15-2004, 04:17 PM
Thanks for the info, Rinkun! Hopefully the picnic will be April 17, photoshoot at the Teahouse in May.

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-15-2004, 04:58 PM
If your dad takes you, then take me with you.

Remember how we were going to go to the one in Rochester and we'd take you....o.o But that's probably not going to happen so let's see about this one.

03-15-2004, 05:18 PM

Yup that is correct! Does it cost anything to do this in the park? Lol ^^;. And Rinkun is the Teahouse even open in April? Just asking cause you know....right? lol
And yes its general cosplay so you can wear whatever!

03-15-2004, 05:55 PM
I got my SMLA )PgSM( more eps today.
Anyways, Amanda I need to talk to you, IM ME.

03-15-2004, 05:56 PM
From the site I was on it says the Teahouse is open from May to October. Go to this site for more info on the Teahouse and find out about it. ^^


*~Hime no Toki~*

03-15-2004, 05:58 PM
It's so pretty! *.* I must get a kimono.

03-15-2004, 06:02 PM
OMG that place is so pretty! ^o^ Too bad its not open in April ;;. :screams at it for not being open in April:
*keeps staring at pics of the teahouse*
We could move it to May but from what I'm getting May isn't that great for people and the NE cosplayers picnic is being in May at sometime ^^;.

03-15-2004, 06:05 PM
o.o I must get something too.

03-15-2004, 08:00 PM
yea, the teahouse opens in May, unfortunately.

oh! i wanted to add:

the area of the teahouse and horticultural society is free to go in and hang out. so is taking pictures outside the teahouse.

the only time you will need to contact the horticultural society and the teahouse is if you are either bringing food, or going inside for pictures.

just wanted to clear that up. so if you're going in april, you don't need to contact the teahouse, cause well, it won't be open ^_^;

x__x i hope that clears stuff up for you guys.

03-15-2004, 09:23 PM
Thanks alot Rinkun ^^! So photoshoot on April 17th @ Fairmount Park!
So who shall be coming? ^_^ I hope some people do come and thanks alot for the show of interest!! :glomps you all:

03-15-2004, 10:08 PM
RIGHT ON!.. That sounds good.

03-15-2004, 10:53 PM
I might be able to go, cuz my dad works in Phili.... But I already asked all of Anime Boston off at work from 8, 9, 10, 11th of April.... So asking off the 17th is iffy. :..( Evil work.... but it gives me $. I may be able to switch....sigh

03-15-2004, 11:10 PM
Oh wow, that teahouse would be a beautiful place to hold it. I have some costumes that would look really nice with all that scenery too. ^^;

03-15-2004, 11:53 PM
I hope we all can go.

03-16-2004, 12:01 AM
In relation to Fairmount, where is the tea-house? (you can tell that living in philly's suburbs for three years makes me so adequately prepared for the city *lol*)...
Because if Rin-kun is right, and we're allowed to take photos outside the teahouse, that might make for some pretty pictures. And if the cherry trees are in blossom by April 17th, people are welcome to come visit Bryn Mawr's campus and take photos with all our lovely cherry trees...:)

03-16-2004, 12:30 AM
Dude the Tea house looks nice.
I could wear my 'Sakura' 2nd movie Play dress there.
The gown and junk.
{ I need the gardar, and star thing AISHA }
And I need little angel wings, and shoes but yes.

03-16-2004, 03:50 AM
At 3:30 PM on Saturday April 17 there will be a cosplay gathering in front of the International House (3701 Chestnut Street) in Philadelphia, PA prior to the Philadelphia International Film Festival screening of Otaku Unite!. Prizes will be given to all costumed attendees. Local newspapers and news programs will be covering the event so make this one count...more info here:

03-16-2004, 04:00 PM
Yayness we can use the teahouse. XD I shall be Ayame for the Photoshoot there. Can't wait til the 17th of April for the get-together. What should each of us bring? We each should be in charge of one thing, like someone brings napkins, someone cups, someone soda, someone chips, etc. So let me get this straight...the Fairmount park event is one thing, and the Teahouse is in May?

Also that Otaku Unite thing sounds cool, maybe after the picnic we could head over there? Sounds convenient. XD

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-16-2004, 06:03 PM
Maybe so hehehehehe <3.

03-16-2004, 06:12 PM
Hehe depends on how far away the International house is from where we're doing this at lol XD;.
Now I'm thinking I might make a certain FF7 character's outfit before then ^_~. Or maybe I'll have my War of Genesis costume by then *shrugs*.

03-16-2004, 06:23 PM
Amanda, before Otakon, can you make me a Selphie Battle outfit? Muah?

03-16-2004, 06:27 PM
Amanda, before Otakon, can you make me a Selphie Battle outfit? Muah?
^^; I have no sewing skills lol. If I can find a yellow dress like it then maybe ^_~. And this has nothing to do with this thread!! :whacks you with a stick: Lol just kidding ^^. I'm happy people are interested!! Yipee! :glomps everyone:

03-16-2004, 06:30 PM
Dude, I can post what I think, to be directed at you.
Big Boss Amanda {You }
^.^ Doesn't that give me a crumb? Lol.

O.o Dude, you made outfits, you can make some!..x.x'

03-16-2004, 06:33 PM
^^; I ALTER stuff, not make outfits lol XD;. I need to learn how to sew a bit more since my dad got me a sewing machine lol XD;.
And here....*gives you a crumb* lol XD;

03-16-2004, 06:36 PM
Janet - if my wig doesn't get here for another costume of mine by April 17th, I'll be Momiji with ya. XD

It would definitely be convenient to hold the photoshoot, and then head over to that Otaku Unite dealie...especially for those of us who aren't right in Philly and can't just go back and forth for both things that easily. o_o

03-16-2004, 06:37 PM
Amanda, that is just so ghetto Lol.
Do you have a blue cloak? or Blue fabric thats a bit long?
Need to use it for my project X.X

03-16-2004, 06:52 PM
WOO BE MOMIJI! XD I'd like to have a cohort or two or three when I'm Ayame. ^^ Or, at least it would be pretty cool. ^.^ And I agree, first the Photoshoot, then Otaku Unite. A great day for us PAC-MEN and other area cosplayers. ^_^

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-16-2004, 07:10 PM
<-- Totally was ignored here.

03-16-2004, 07:16 PM
Sorry Kayla I don't have any blue fabric or a cloak XD;.
And I totally agrre with ya Nicole and Janet ^_^. I'd like to get a count of who thinks they're coming ^_^!

03-16-2004, 07:18 PM
<-- Coming duh duh.

03-16-2004, 07:33 PM
*raises hand* meee. I found this kimono pattern, time to actually sew something according to the pattern. ^^;

03-16-2004, 07:45 PM
I probably will be Momiji, it would fit the setting best I think. XD Now all I need is a ride...>_> Other then that little matter, I'll be there.

03-16-2004, 07:46 PM
o.o Make me a Selphie outfit Aisha.

03-16-2004, 08:10 PM
Here's the official Photoshoot announcement:
Who: Northeast Cosplayers
What: Cosplay Photoshoot
When: April 17th,2004
Why: Need there be a reason why? Lol XD;. Just because....
Time: 11:30am-?

--Site for Fairmount Park

--Site for the Japanese Teahouse

Hows that for everyone? If need be, the time it starts can be changed, and we should pick a particular spot to meet ^^;. Spread the word about this please ^_^!

03-16-2004, 08:33 PM
I'll be there. Now should I wear a kimono or a costume...? Perhaps there will be decent restrooms to change in (?) - the ones at the cosplay picnic back in the fall were awful!

ooooh...and shameless ad: would anyone like to purchase one of my other kimonos? They're really nice silk weaves and straight from Japan...

03-16-2004, 08:42 PM
How much? Lol XD;. And what is your real name? I think you said at the Prussiacon in November but I forgot lol XD;.
And I would think there would be a restroom there lol XD.

03-16-2004, 08:46 PM
My grandmom says that the tea house is beautiful, that she drove by it many times Lol.

03-17-2004, 08:35 AM
I'd like to come. I just moved to Lancaster County. I'm not sure how I'd get to Phili, But I wanna come and get acquainted with the cosplayers, and put my costumes to good use. I don't have any beautiful silk kimono's, but I have a cotton one that's got silk-y trim...

03-17-2004, 09:56 AM
The more the merrier, Hope! ^_^ You're welcome to come and spend the day with us, it will be a great time! I'm definately being Ayame from Fruits Basket. ^^ I wish I had Kaoru from Ruroken done...but Ayame is just as good if you ask me for this kind of scenery. ^^ Reminds me of Shigure's place or Hatori's. Ah yes and thanks for making a summary of the details for this event, Amanda, it helps to make things more organized. ^.^

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-17-2004, 02:02 PM
o.o Sakura's second movie play gown is ok for it right?

03-17-2004, 02:18 PM
Yeah, cosplay anyone, anything goes, lol XD I think it would look great at the Teahouse, especially in the garden area.

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-17-2004, 02:20 PM
^.^ Thankies<3...

03-17-2004, 04:07 PM
I've decided I'll probably bring 2 costumes if there are restrooms (there better be >D lol). I REALLY want to cosplay Aerith so I might make her for that ^^. And Then I'm not sure on what other costume to wear lol XD;. Maybe I'll get Summoner Yuna done, which I started last winter and never got around to working on it lol XD;.

Yup ^_^. In Philadelphia to be exact lol XD.
Someone finally posted again...........*cheers* lol I though this thread was dying....;;.

03-21-2004, 02:21 PM
Amanda that icon is cute, it's from our little trip YESTERDAY.

03-21-2004, 02:39 PM
Has anyone figured out if we're allowed to take photos in the gardens of the teahouse? Or is there a gate that is gonna be locked, thereby keeping us out?
And have we decided that we're meeting at the teahouse, even if its not open - just so we all know where each other are...

03-21-2004, 02:48 PM
I think were allowed to outside, but have to call them to ask or notify about inside.

03-21-2004, 04:41 PM
I think were allowed to outside, but have to call them to ask or notify about inside.

Well the inside of it is closed until May and I believe Janet said earlier that it was ok to take pics outside. But I'll ask Rinkun next time I talk to her ^^.

03-21-2004, 05:11 PM
Rinkun said we had to 'ask' for pictures inside. Which
would be for May.
And outside, they said it was fine, so.

03-21-2004, 06:08 PM
Ok then ^_^. *starts counting down* I know I'm such a weirdo lol ^^; I'm so excited about this XD!!!!!!!

03-21-2004, 06:27 PM
I've never been there, so I didn't know if there was a gate around the entire teahouse (garden included) that might keep us from gaining entrance until May...
But if people seem to think otherwise, then it's gonna be a GREAT place to take photos. That weekend had BETTER be nice and sunny...!!!

03-21-2004, 06:36 PM
Yeah, I have my fingers crossed for good weather. We should probably set up a rain date, just in case.

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-21-2004, 06:44 PM
where are we going? must plan for septa and I read something about a theme? that would be kindof hard for me (didn't read all the pages)

03-21-2004, 06:46 PM
Yes sir. It's a very nice and sexy place.

03-21-2004, 06:49 PM
Ok the anwers to your questions:
1-We're going to Fairmount Patk and the Japanese Teahouse
2-You can wear any costume you want, just make sure you cosplay lol ^^;.

*cries tears of joy* Thank you for your interest everyone ;_;!

03-22-2004, 05:19 PM
O.O Amanda, pleaseeee makeee me something Lol.

03-22-2004, 05:31 PM
It depends on what lol ^^; Gah! The thread is getting quiet again ;_; *pokes it*
I should get off the comp. Been on all day ^^;

03-22-2004, 05:41 PM
What time are we meeing? Because there is another cosplay event in Philly that afternoon at 3:30 at the International House on Chestnut. But that should only take an hour --- maybe we could all go over there for the press-shoot and then come back to the park..

I hope the weather is good that day, and that the lighting is alright. The cherry trees should be in bloom, so that's gonna make for some really nice shots!

03-22-2004, 06:49 PM
Hopefully early, or something^^

03-22-2004, 07:35 PM
11:30 I read somewhere, and yes we are going to that other cosplay thing, ahhh ^_^ cherry trees

03-22-2004, 08:40 PM
As long as Amanda drives me, I'm alll for it Lol.

03-23-2004, 07:47 PM
I said 11:30, but if you wanna start it later than that or whatever just let me know ^^. We could do it around 12 or 1 and thenafterwards head over to the Otaku Unite thing, I leave that decision up to you ^_^.

03-23-2004, 07:51 PM
what are we doing about food? would be pack a lunch

03-23-2004, 08:03 PM
Picnic, we should all 'bring something'.
Or not.
Snacks - Chips Prestles, Something.
Omgs, I could order a pizza, and bring it up.
X.x' -Dies.- But what if I spilled on my outfit!

{ Early Amanda, we have to go to the Otaku thing too remember? }

03-23-2004, 08:04 PM
I could make tofu and soba (SP?) noodles ^_^

03-23-2004, 08:12 PM
Ramen, lmfao - Nevermind X.x'

Akiko Ki
03-23-2004, 09:49 PM
::jumps around:: My mom has off so I can go for sure not to mention I got stuff to give lol. ::feels like santa clus or something::

03-23-2004, 09:55 PM
YAY. o.o !!!! You should go to Otakont oo.

03-23-2004, 11:28 PM
I can go - I just need a ride. ^^; If people can't make it early, we could always do the Otaku Unite thing and then head to the teahouse place.

03-24-2004, 12:01 AM
o.o...... Tea HOuse then OTaku.!

03-24-2004, 10:12 AM
LMAO...soba...XD And I'm Ayame...and Ayame eats soba with confidence. XD Ok, so I never had it and I might not be confident about actually EATING it...but that's because me is a picky eater. ^^;

I think the best bet is to try to not bring messy food since I know we're all going to be cautious in our costumes and not want stuff to spill. XD Good idea to bring some cleaning supplies while we're at it, just in case.

*~Hime no Toki~*

03-24-2004, 02:25 PM
*laughs at Janet* Lol ^^;. I love your Ayame costume btw ^_^. And I think everyone got scared off again *sweatdrops*. Come back please...................lol.
Anyway its up to you whther to bring food or not.but then wouldn't this just turn into a picnic? ^^; Then again it is up to you all, I'm very flexible lol.

03-24-2004, 06:53 PM
No soba? ahh its good, and not really messy, you can eat it plain (never did that) or with seasame oil and soysauce with the tofu to top it off ^_^ mmmmm so good ^_^

03-24-2004, 10:46 PM
I think we can all be like 'Aw' Oh Ah.
Yay I can't wait.

03-25-2004, 06:21 PM
Get there first then think of poses lol XD;. So..........*pokes the thread* It's dying again ;;. I'm looking forward to this much ^_^. I'm hoping to have Aerith done by this but I need to hit up some stores for costume supplies XD;

03-25-2004, 06:26 PM
Hmm, I'll bring...... I guess I can maybe get some giant pocky that morning ^^; Anything that won't get on my huge white Meiling sleeves x.x

03-25-2004, 06:30 PM
You're being Meiling? Coolness ^o^. I love Meiling!! But yesh definetly bring Giant Pocky *________*. Every cosplayer needs some pocky lol XD;
Hmm.......maybe just maybe I'll drag my boyfriend along since he REALLY wants to go to a convention with me sometime and he wants to cosplay o_O;. But he doesn't even like anime lol XD;. WE'LL CONVERT HIM! lol

03-25-2004, 07:05 PM

03-28-2004, 04:29 PM
I can't ;;. My mom is tired of driving me everywhere. I am obviously coming to the photoshoot but after that probably can't go anywhere since she;s fed up with drving me. If she'd take me for my permit and stuff like that maybe since I do have a car, just can't drive it yet ^^; And she said it depends on my grades if I go to anymore cons ;;. She said if I don't improve she's not taking me to Otakon so.....

03-28-2004, 05:00 PM
IMPROVE THEN.. -Jebus.- >.<!

03-28-2004, 09:07 PM

*Pokes in.* My friend and I have been pondering about coming to this picnic, for picnics are good! Only problem is I noticed you all talking about heading over to the OtakuUnite thing as well, which would be cool…except we won’t have a car, we’re just going to be dropped off there. So…is the OtakuUnite thing within walking distance? X_o Or would we just be better off staying at one or the other and not attempting to go to both?
