Hi all,

I'd like to invite everyone to join the Candy Lolita photo shoot. It will be at the Brooklyn Botnical Gardens Sunday May 16th. Entry in to the botanical gardens is 5$ for adults 16 and over, and 3$ for students with ID.

I hope to see you there,

~Anna

Oh, I'd like to go...Hm, I just want to make a new Lolita first. We'll see what happens. ^-^

By the way Dressdragn, Pratt students get in free with their ID ( At least

Arg.... I might be in Florida (heading down there to visit family and go to Jacon) then :/
But if I'm not I'll be there with bells on... well... maybe not bells... but I'll be there ^_^

I'm confused, I heard that this might be the same day as the pratt graduation, but it also might be the day after. If it is the same day, or if the day I picked dosn't work for people we can move it, either to the last week of april or to the week after Sunday the 23rd. Is that better for people?

EDIT: Sorry, I had the dates slightly off before. Here are corrections:

Pratt graduation is on Friday, May 14, 2004. Graduates are kicked out of the dorms on the following Sunday, May 16th by noon.

I don't think there's a big problem with your orginally posted date of Sunday, May 16. It just depends for us Pratt graduates if we will be around the NYC area around that time. For me I have no idea at the moment. :lost:

I'd love to come to the photoshoot and probably will, IF I'm still hanging out in NYC. However, I'm not really into the sweet lolita style of dress so maybe I'll try my hand at being the photographer. ^_^

It would be better for me to have it before May 16th, since I think I might be in FL at that time. I like the idea of the either late April or early May, personally, but that's just me ^_^

That's actually the week before my graduation, so I'll definitely keep an eye on this thread. I adore the sweet lolita style. Does it have to be original, or does a sweet lolita style cosplay work? I wouldn't necessarily stay in character, but one of my upcoming costumes is in that style.

Oh, would anyone mind if my boyfriend tagged along? I don't really like traveling into Brooklyn by myself, especially if I'll be dressed funny!

Both Cosplay and Non-cospaly is fine. I think I might do something orginal, but I haven't made up my mind yet.

As for the date, if we pushed it back a week would that help or make it worse?

Also the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens do not allow tripods.

KuroBara
03-31-2004, 06:40 PM
Nope, if it's pushed back that's bad for me, as it'll interfere with my graduation(May 23). But, if I can't go, I can't go! *shrugs* Since more people from Pratt are planning to attend, it's better to work around their schedule.

Flippy
03-31-2004, 07:06 PM
Ou, Ou (sounds like monkey wanting attention) how about Memorial day weekend it's May 29-31~if peolpe have a busy schedule they can have the get together on May 29 or 30 and then most people have off on monday so they can catch up on the lost time then....it's just an idea :crest:

well how about list your costume here that we can pick something that's close to serise? that sounds good?

dressdragn
04-26-2004, 04:47 PM
Ok,

It's almost May that the cherry trees are blooming. So I guess what I need everyone to tell is if they'll be ready for the Candy Lolita photo shoot for May 16th or if they need more time.

I'm good to go, but if we need to push it back so people can work more on there outfits or whatever let me know.

~Anna

May 16th is a Sunday. The Sakura Matsuri will be pretty crowed, so I thougth it might be nice to do this at a diffrent time. If lots of people want to push it up to this weekend (the weekend of the sakura matsuri) I guess we could do that. But it's easyer for me to finish if it's the 16th.

~Anna

I'll either be wearing this: click (http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=49695), or I'll make the cherry-inspired lolita that I've had the fabric for since...oh, too long!

dressdragn
04-29-2004, 03:21 PM
Ok, since only 3 people have said yes for May 16th (myself included) what if we pushed it foward to Saturday May 8th (sat. b/c sun is mothers day). Would more people be able to attend then?

To make it easyer for people to attend, we're moving the location of the photo shoot to manhattan. The exact location hasn't been decied but the posiblities are:

Shakespear garden at Belveder castle http://www.centralpark.org/

Chelsea Park, (has the advantage of being very close to the metro anime screening) located at 27th st and 9th ave just a few blocks away from penstation

Just let me know what you guys think,

Hmmm I'm not sure what day is good for me anymore since theres AIDS walk in the city and really want to be in it but I'm not sure if it's the 15th or 16th.....don't plan around me....I'll tell you guys when I find my head again. I'll be coming in through grand central, if I go.....but I love the subway just so long as I know where I'm going....so lets get a set location or I'll end up in the BX...lol.

Then I can do a yellow pages search for the closest wig shop.

The nearest wig shops are over in the whole sale district, there's a pretty good one that dose retail on 30th and 6th (near image anime). um... also theres a whole sale place we go to to get wigs, but we'd need to be buying at least 6, and joel would have to be with us.

Oh man the weather.....I hope none of you guys have white shoes since it supposed to rain on saturday ( I'm unsure about sunday other than it will be humid) and the ground will be wet....all so bring some thing to sit on so that you costume will not get wet. It may be from the left over soggines from Saturday or from rain on Sunday ( I hope it doesn't rain) since we will be in a park for part of this.

We really should all make a stop in a wig shop since many of use seem to need to get one...any way they are fun try on......oh if we do remember bring a wig cap( if you have one) so that you don't have to buy one there.

P.S. I was right, I wasn't able to make a costume for this and neither did my friend so we will just hang around.

Hey me and my friend are coming but we've decided that we are going to be going to a AIDS walk in the city early in the morning....the problem is that we will be arriving after the meeting time in Penn Station. After we are done with the walk we will freshen up before going over to the park. Well just hang around while every one is shoting since we both don't have outfits. Anyway this was my question is the shoting still going to be done in Chelsea Park. Do you know of what park ofthe park you guys might be at.
Maybe one of you guys has a cell phone? I could PM you with mine or you can PM me with yours before tommorrow.....just an idea, we could call each other in case we dont see each everyone in the park....we'd only be alittle late.

Wow that was a great shot!....It was a great introduction into photo shoots since that was my first one. Everyone was so nice. Sorry if I seemed a little mellow, shy or depressed, thats just how I get when I'm around new people...I was actually very very happy. I told my friend what happed afterward and she told me that I could be mistaken as an "Emo Girl" when I'm around new people I laughed. I don't even understand the concept of Emo as a music genre (is there even?) and I like living, not tring to kill myself or talk about doing it....I just like pins thats all.

Anyway count me in on the next one in august. Next time I'll make a costume. Thanks dressdragn for the apron. I hope to see at least some of you at a con before august...I heard alot of you were going to Animenext...hot to see you there.

So I guess all that's left is the same question KaineMaxwell...when will the rest of the pictures be posted?

Haha Emo.

It's kinda like pop-punk only it makes less sense(purple monkey diswasher dances amongst baby river urine dogs for example) And having pins on ur school bag doesnt make ur emo, it makes ur friend an idiot though,lol. I kid
But yeah we gots lot of super fun stuff planned. Once I talk to my penquin partner in crime, they'll be more listed on the NYO! boards soon.
