I know I know, "Philly picnic" "Philly photoshoot" "NY photoshoot". Well, the fact of the matter is that I know almost nobody going to any of these, and that idea is pretty intimidating.

I've been a member of the cosplay community for about 3 years now, and been part of cosplay.com for almost 2 years, but the fact remains that I know about 2 people on this whole website. I was thinking that this little meet-and-greet could be arranged so that shy people like me and cosplay newbies could have the opportunity to get together outside of a convention environment and get to know some people.

I was hoping that this could be held someplace in NJ, maybe even by the beach closer to the summer season, and we could do this on a saturday or sunday. You don't necessarily have to be in costume, esp if you wanna go swimming or something (although, if you wanna cosplay then be my guest). Maybe we could do a beach picnic or something?

I dunno, this is just an idea. Anyone interested can post up any ideas or suggestions :skidude2:

What's NYO, and is it based in NY?

NYO is based in NYC, but members are from NJ, NY and other places.

well, part of the reason I wanted to do this is because I can't afford to make a hike up to the NY area every time there's some kind of event, plus I've never really fit in in any kind of cosplay groups. This arrangement would just be for one day, for anyone who was interested..not just people in a cosplay club.

I know, I usually wind up feeling left-out too.

I guess, but I don't even know anyone. Why would I drop all this money to go, by myself, and see a bunch of people I don't know who will probably just ignore me? sounds kind of like a waste of money/time to me.
