The only cosplay event i've ever heard of in GA is the Anime Weekend Atlanta. Is anyone else going to have a picnic/gathering in Georgia this year?

Not plan but plot MWA HA HA AHA HA !!!! :love: :thumbsup: :bigtu: :chatah:

If there's going to be a picnic in GA, count me in!! I'm in SC, but I live right on the northwestern border of GA and SC.

I just recently moved to the Atlanta area with my partner and a good friend of ours. We're looking to meet up with people in the area for photoshoots and other such gatherings. I enjoy taking pictures and am always interested in meeting with people to do photoshoots. I still have my Angel Sanctuary group photoshoot pictures in my gallery if anyone is interested in seeing them.

There a couple of good Cosplayers here in the Atlanta area, but we all seem to keep to ourselves. Carmila had Tried to organize a Photoshoot and picnic, but there was a lack of commentment before hand by folks. The original idea was to have it at Peidmont park, but I am not positive if that is the best of places for a cosplay picnic and photoshoot. I would be up for doing one againa nd very willing to bring along my good camera for the shoot itself.

I think we ought to try to arrange a picnic, that is, if we could get enough people to commit to go. If it is in mid-late June or any time after, I will definetly go! ^_^

ame-chan
05-09-2004, 10:01 PM
Is there any place that everyone thinks is really good for pictures? We don't really want to get too far away from the general Atlanta area, if at all possible. Gas prices being one of the biggest reasons. *keels over* We found some really pretty botanical gardens not too far from us in, I guess, Loganville. We've also been planning on checking out Stone Mountain, and a couple of other gardens that were highly recommended to us.

Hehe...if all else fails, in a year or two when I start up that garden I wanna put in our backyard, we can just do stuff at our house. *laughs*

Toastersix
05-09-2004, 10:04 PM
Hmm... whatever is fine for me. My drive will be at least 2.5 hours, as it is, but to meet up with fellow cosplayers NOT @ a con is definetly worth it!

The botanical garden that's near Loganville (North of Atlanta) is really pretty. We did a shoot one sunday there and it's got plenty of different themed sections. Not the most beautiful place in the world, but it's still pretty.

And a picnic idea sounds cute

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-09-2004, 11:23 PM
Yeah Logansvill sounds cool. But Stone Mountain has some pretty scenery too. I'll go anywhere in GA though if it isn't TOO far from Atlanta. And if anyone wants to plan a picnic I'll be happy to help :bigtu: (but it'll be my first :thumbsup: )

Toastersix
05-10-2004, 04:01 PM
I have quite a few friends who aren't members of CC who would most definetly attend the picnic, too. ^_^ Ballpark, when are we wanting to do this? Late June?

Ragresen
05-10-2004, 05:21 PM
I am up for atleast being the photographer if not bring out a costume for it. But one problem is I amgone from June 30th till July 7th. Also saturdays are my only good days as I work sundays and most folks work thrusday and fridays. Stone mountain would be fun. it is a large park and has a bunch of neat areas to do shoots at. I will get Carmila to look at this thread. As I talked with her last night and she still wants to have one.

Toastersix
05-10-2004, 05:26 PM
We could have it either the weekend before June 30th or the weekend after July 7th. However, I'm not sure about July 7th, as I will be gone to the Governer's School for 2 weeks prior to Otakon. I'll be bringing at least 4 other people with me.

Ragresen
05-11-2004, 10:31 AM
Well june 30th to July 7th is vacation/AX for me. So as long as it does not fall between those dates I am cool with it. It is good to see intrest in this again. now lets just make it happen.

SMoogle
05-11-2004, 11:02 AM
always count me in... can we try for early july? yeah, i know its going to be death-hot, but i wouldnt be able to make it from june 24-27 - i'm having to go to a land far far away (known as ohio) for a gaming con. i know we wont be able to cater to everyone's needs, but i was just hoping ;) i think the botanical gardens would be perfect...
what i think we need is some sort of official headcount...we need to know exactly how many people are going to be coming for sure, and whether or not we can afford to pull this off

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-11-2004, 01:59 PM
I was hoping it could be around the middle of July or beginning of August? Because June really isn't a good month. I'll be completely out of $$, I can barely make it to the A-kon! :waaaah: (But I will still be going :bigtu: )

Toastersix
05-11-2004, 03:54 PM
How about July 10th? It's a Saturday. We could each bring some little food and have a lovely picnic....and photoshoot, of course. ^_^

Schuldig
05-11-2004, 06:00 PM
I would prefer either the second to last week in June or something around the middle of July. (can't be the end of July because my partner and I will be in Costa Rica for a wedding we're photographing/videotaping

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-11-2004, 08:31 PM
How about August 7th? It's on a Saturday also. I could probably make it if its on June 26th...but I wouldn't be able to make a costume in time :lost:

Toastersix
05-11-2004, 08:40 PM
Can we maybe do July 10th, because I will be away at Governer's School 2 days after that for 2 weeks, and then directly after that is Otakon, and then when I get back from that a friend of mine is staying for a week in which time I probably couldn't leave town. Would everyone be able to make it then? It's far enough away for people to make a costume, too. I'll probably be some form of Rikku. ^^

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-11-2004, 08:43 PM
Is the 12th possible? Because I won't be able to make it if it's on a Thursday. And you're gonna be Rikku? Yay! Cause I might go as a form Yuna :bigtu:

Toastersix
05-11-2004, 08:52 PM
JULY 10th. heh.

Really? A Yunie? XD Well, all we need now is Pa to have all of YuRiPa! ^_^

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-11-2004, 09:05 PM
Sorry, my bad I read that one too fast. Okay July 10th is good for me. Anyone else object?

Actually i was just looking at my "To Do" cosplay list, and I have decided to do Jam from Guilty Gear. But the costume i'm gonna do ALWAYS changes so I might go back to Yuna. :thumbsup: So many costumes so little time :waaaah:

If you're local I wouldn't mind meeting up with people before then. Long drives obviously make that a bit more difficult.

July 10th works for me. Did we decide on Stone Mountain? They have a fee to get in, but it's by the car. I believe it's 7.00 a car

Hmm. I thought we were going to Logansville? :thumbsup: I think we're all a little confused right now...Either that or Logansville. Maybe we should take a vote? I've heard of Logansville and seen it I just don't know exactly where it is. :p That and there might not be as many people if they have to pay....just a thought...

Toastersix

I don't really mind what we do. Consider me the neutral voter. :)

Ragresen
05-12-2004, 09:04 AM
I woould rather Stone Mountain as it is closer for those of us in the northwest cornor of Atlanta. Like myself living in acworth which makes stone mountain atleast an hours dive on it own and to go to loganville we are talking another 30 mins min for me. I am not saying loganville is bad, but if we can make the location somewhere more central to folks it would be better. As to the entry fee at stone mountain yes that is something like $5 or $7 a car.

So where is each of us from and anyone got another suggestion besides Piedmont park? The parking downtown is well sketchy and risky.

Schuldig
05-12-2004, 11:36 AM
I figure we can all meet somewhere general and carpool? When we had shoots in Florida, there were a couple of instances where we all met at a local mall, parked and carpooled to the photoshoot location.

Rain and I drive an SUV, which means we can fit 5 comfortably, 7 if two people sit in the back. (that includes us.) If we carpool, the entrance fee breaks down a lot better.

I wouldn't mind doing Stone Mountain, only because the Botanical Garden here in Loganville is kindof, under-kept. Rain has a few pictures of our neices (cosplaying Van and Merle) that were taking at the botanical gardens. The gardens are pretty, but I hear Stone Mountain is just better.

Botanical Gardens (http://images.cosplay.com/showgallery.php?cat=500&si=&page=2&sort=1&perpage=18&password=cca16a8e4534def4b0e34c5eb246db8a&ppuser=1122&stype=0)

SMoogle
05-12-2004, 01:29 PM
Oh, july 10th is perfect!! I like the idea of stone mountain, and I really like the idea of meeting up before hand. I drive a wagon, so i can fit 4-5, plus picnicbaskets and props. I think i'll have Alexiel done by then...if not, i'll just use my lolita outfit. Also, i'll try and bring a few other friends with me, so that's a few more for our headcount. *excited*

Toastersix
05-12-2004, 04:29 PM
Well, in answer to the "Where are you from" inquiry, I'm from South Carolina, the Northwestern tip of it. Carpooling sounds like the way to go, by the way. It makes things alot cheaper forn all of us. ^_^

I'm not sure wether I'll bring Super Sailor Neptune or Gun Mage Rikku. Orr I could bring my Ranma-Chan pink China overalls. Hmm.. XD

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-12-2004, 05:58 PM
Wow! More replies since I left. This is the first thread that got more than 5 replies :thumbsup: . Anyways, back on subject. I live all the way in augusta, so Atlanta is about 2-2 1/2 hours away. But I don't mind the drive. My mom said she loves the idea and would be glad to go along to take pictures. Stone Mountain sounds good to me and July 10th is a good date. I'll probably be bringing a few friends too. And the carpool idea sounds good. Except for the car I'll be arriving in can only carry 3 ppl in the back. That's not counting me and the driver. :waaaah: And the people going with me (only one for sure...)

And I finally decide on doing Aya Matsuura from Yeah! Meccha Holiday for the cosplay part. Who else is gonna be cosplaying?

Ragresen
05-12-2004, 06:43 PM
Well It seems Stone Mtn is the place and July 10th is the date. God I will just prey I have it off sinc eI am coming off a vacation to AX on the 7th. If not I wish all of you the best on it.

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-12-2004, 06:46 PM

05-12-2004, 07:22 PM
Ragresen: If you request that day off early enough there's nothing they can do to say that you CAN'T have it off. Just don't forget. ^_~

As for what's next...tell lots of people and see how many people we can get to meet there.

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-12-2004, 07:24 PM
Alright I'm on it!...and my costume... :p

Schuldig
05-13-2004, 01:44 AM
hmm... costumes.. there's too many to choose from. ^_^; I'll probably end up wearing a new Mermaid Melody costume since Rain usually always takes pictures *pokes Ame-chan* But who knows between now and then ( I change my mind a LOT).

I know that in our SUV, there will be atleast 4 (because one of our good friends, Athena, & her fiancee just moved up here as well and they cosplay) so we'll have room for 2-3 more in our SUV.

Any and all pictures that we take will all go up on our website (Emeralds and Jade) for easy access to all the cosplayers.

Considering the fact I am just coming back from Vacation and AX on july 7th they have every right to say no to a request for that day off.

05-13-2004, 02:17 PM
Thats what i'm afraid of too, ragresen, since i'm already asking a few days off in june.
let's try and round up as many as we can, but first we have to pick a meeting place, and a meeting time. I dont know the area well - what mall is nearby? Any landmarks we could go by? we should also probably talk about who is bringing what foods. I can bring...um..cookies! i rock at making cookies. i'll make a couple different kinds :) chocolate chip, sugar, oatmeal raisin....*grin*

Aleathia Burns
05-13-2004, 02:57 PM
Uh can I come? Pretty please. I have to confess that I am taking driving lessons this summer so I will still be on the marta. But If any of you guys are carpooling I can bring food and plenty of gas money!!!! :thumbsup:

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-13-2004, 03:45 PM
Sure you can come! You can carpool with me and my friend :) I have no clue what I'm gonna bring yet....but if you guys think of something just tell me and its there. :bigtu:

Oh, and I hear ya about the costume. I always change my mind at least a hundred time before I can pick one. That's what i'm doing for the oni-con....it irritates my friend too :razz: But I think i'm pretty sure on the costume i've picked so far.

I'm soooo glad I have a posh 9-5 job in the morgage business. ^__^ It makes for these kinds of events to be a snap, since I'm already off on the weekends.

I decided that I'm going to wear my Subaru costume from .hack//sign. (assuming ofcourse, I find the right colored wig for it.

I'd be willing to chip in for food (chips, cookies, sodas, whatever). From the sounds of it, Rain and I are the closest to Stone Mountain so I'll volunteer to searching out a neutral meeting place (mall) to park at before we hit the park.

What should I bring?

Okay, here's a food list that we NEED:

chips
sodas
cut fruit (watermelon?)
PIZZAS!!! we can all chip in money for that...
drinking water

And i'm bringing cookies. Anything anyone wants to add?
Now, since we're buying pizzas, we need to know about how many people are coming... so far we have randomfanboy + friend, aleathia, Schuldig, Ayane_Eiketsu, Tasukichan, Ragresen, ame-chan, snowqueenie, and me + friend. Did i miss anyone? Okay, everyone start telling other people about it, the more the merrier!

I will pass along the date a time for Carmila as I am sure she would want to make it. If I can make it Iwill bring along something a little different like some Fried Chicken. Again I am not positive I will make it unless I get a new job in the next month.

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-16-2004, 02:55 PM

Mmmm... Cheese. XD

I'll make some CHEESEcake, then. hehe. I love cheesecake and it's fun to make. I promise I'm a better cook than Akane. ^^;

SMoogle, I love your banner. Hyde is teh hotness. XD

ame-chan
05-16-2004, 07:13 PM
One of our friends will be joining us. She'll probably bring her fiance with her as well.

From the sound of things, we're going to have a LOT of food with us. So I doubt we'll need a whole lot of pizza. It might prove a bit easier to manage if everyone just brings something. Someone gets drink duty, paper plates and napkin duty, pizza duty, munchies duty. It would be best if we make sure that everyone that's joining us takes one of the important jobs. If we can get a list and just respond with what they're volunteering to get. This way there's no need to worry about some people bringing food and needing to pitch in money and then some people will end up spending more money then others and other such nonsense.

Here's the list so far.
Ragresen - Chicken
Ayane - Pizza
Tasukichan - Cheesecake

We'll definately need someone to bring drinks ( more then one person might even be better ) and bring dishes, cups, and napkins. I'll talk to Vikki ( Schuldig ) and decide what we'll be bringing before I go deciding for us.

Ame-chan, you forgot my cookies!!!! I can bring plates too, put me down for those.

Tasukichan, i looooooove cheesecake!!! i will love you forever if you bring me cheesecake!

Ayane - cheese and pepperoni.... maybe two of each? someone tell me if that seems like too much/too little.

Somebody volunteer drinks, pweeze! I'm also going to bring a few trash bags, since i dont know the site, and i'm not sure how many trashcans they have there.
Now, how many photographers do we have coming?

I'll definately be going with my camera. Therefore I probably won't go in costume myself. I always end up driving myself nuts if I wear a costume and try to direct a lot of pictures. Though someone is trying to convince me that I should go and make a Paine costume for the event. *sweatdrop*

Lucifer is definately an interesting character. My Alexial is the one that just moved up to the area with us, but the rest of my group is a bit too far away. That doesn't mean that we couldn't put together another group for anything. I know some of them will be coming up for AWA this year, so there's always the chance that you could get pictures with some of them at the convention.

I don't know how worth it the flyer would be. I'm sure word of mouth at least and this forum can help a lot with getting the word out and taking care of helping people find directions.

Ok, I've been watching PGSM lately.... and I may bring my Sailor Mars outfit from PGSM. XD

However, my favourite is Zoicite. He's so awesome!! Just sitting there... and playing the same song on his piano over and over. XD

I'll definetly be Gun Mage Rikku, though. ^^ And the cheesecake is a go. Anyone have any suggestions for flavor? Or, should I make plain cheesecake and then bring various toppings such as strawberries and blueberries? ^_^ OR, we could just go for chocolate cheesecake.

ame-chan
05-17-2004, 08:05 PM
I really like Zoicite's PGSM look. I've got that on my to be made list. I'll probably put him right after my Galaxia costume that I've had material for for over a year now. *sweatdrops*

I've been thinking of making fuku as well. I probably would make either Jupiter or Mercury. I like how extremely detailed the entire costumes are. Its pretty interesting to see all the little odds and ends that make up all the decorations.

o.o! If you wear a fuku, I might be tempted to make my Sailor Luna instead of wearing Subaru from .hack//sign!


Ame-chan and I will bring drinks. All we need is a definete head count and then preference. (I usually like to stock a cooler with water bottles, juices, and sodas last only because sodas never seem to do much for me.)

I found out that there are no malls near the park, but there's a target kinda close, but it's a pain to get back out in the direction we'd want to go. There's also concerns with cars not being safe if they are left. If people want to leave cars at our house, that would be fine though. We also, might possibly have a second SUV. (Expedition, seats like 8 or 10 something ridiculous)

[Hey now!

What's this about you living in Augusta, GA? It's nice to know there's someone out there close to me. I live just right across the river from you in Aiken, SC!! How about that?! I might be interested in the picnic, it just depends on the dates. Hey Ayane, shoot me an e-mail if you get a chance, it'd be great to hear from a fellow neighbor in the CSRA. But you know, having a picnic in June/July in the summer, I know I'd be hot in my outfit, I don't know about you guys. I was hot at the DragonCon last year in the Batsuit. And that was without latex armor! I'm new to the site, and just signed up so let's see what happens.

Hot at Dragon Con. welcome to Atlanta home of the 100% humidity and getting hot in any costume you wear. I actually was getting a case of heat Exhaustion after being in the 501st parade in my Deathstar Gunner. Trust me black is a poor color choice for summer days in Atlanta. But if things go well we will not have a lot to worry about heat wise.

sorry i haven't posted in a while, but I was up in Atlanta. while i was up there i got some flyers for stone mountain and callaway gardens(i was reeaaaally bored in the hotel...) but sure i'll bring cheese and pepperoni pizzas. is 3 or 4 pizzas enough? and I'll bring whatever else you'll need.

oh and brantman sorry i didn't email you. my comp hates me and messes up all the time. and that's another reason that i picked aya matsuura for my costume, not as hot :rofl:

Alright Aleathia, good one, you got me! :) Although, I must say, it's not a rubber suit, it's spandex/lycra baby, yeah!!! Ayane, I plan on going to AWA this year, do you need a extra person to ride up with you? It'd save on gas, especially the way it's been going up. I'll be staying at the hotel for one night with Aleathia... Anyways, also Ayane, are you bringing "Pizza Joint" pizza to the picnic? That would be the best choice since they are like the best in town!! Period!!! Speaking of the Pizza Joint, I plan on going there Saturday night perhaps with some friends, interested? Let me know.

Since I live so far out from Atlanta I was gonna order the pizza along the way then pick it up. After 2 hours in a car it might get a little....funky. :razz:

ame-chan
05-24-2004, 03:43 PM
Since it'll be harder to get an exact number so soon, you might want to try asking for a head count again next month when its closer to the actual date.

Schu and I are still recommending that we meet at our house rather then somewhere near to Stone Mountain. It's a little bit all around safer to leave a car at a house then in a parking lot somewhere for several hours.

Ayane_Eiketsu
05-25-2004, 12:07 PM
Yeah, that sounds like a better idea. But i'd need REALLY good directions. I get lost so easily its not even funny. Which is also bad 'cause its been years since i've been to Stone Mountain :lost:

And since it will probably be so hot, I was thinking that maybe we should have it from about 2 or 3 PM until about 10:30PM (because the laser show is at 9:30)? Too early? too late?

Aleathia Burns
05-25-2004, 02:15 PM
Sounds good. I just hope that I don"t have to be at work on Monday cuz I always wanted to see the Laser show at Stone Mountain. :bigtu: :jjacks:

ok kids, i just found this thread and am totally into the idea! however, i'm having trouble piecing together the details, could someone post a quick summary on when and where and what time and what to bring, i know that all this info is sprinkled throughout the last ten pages or so, but it'd be really helpful to people who are just now finding out about it. thanks!

oooh, and also, what sort of costumes are being worn...is it strictly anime? or open ended?

ame-chan
06-15-2004, 10:44 AM
July 10th is the date of our shoot. Everyone will meet at Schu and I's home and we will carpool to Stone Mountain for pictures. Everyone is to bring some sort of food item or paper good for drinks, plates, etc. Directions to our home will be Pmed to everyone at a sooner date. We'll be double checking costumes and what everyone wants to bring food wise as we hit the end of the month.

Entrance fees into Stone Mountain park are by the car load ( hence us meeting and then driving together ) and I believe we're all going to split the cost.

That would be cool if some one did. :jjacks:

By the way... I've never been to Stone Mountain... but where are we planning on meeting there? the parking lot?

Ooh! I think I'll make a big "Southeast Cosplayer's Picnic! Cosplay.com" sign for the back of our big group picture. ^___^

I was looking for the gates on the Stone Mountain map, and I could only find west gate. (I've never been there before.) Soo... How about we meet up at West Gate? at 2:30?

Ayane_Eiketsu
06-30-2004, 02:10 PM
West at 2:30? Sounds good to me. And I love the idea about the sign! I think that would be awesome! :dance:

Hi! I found this thread while doing a search for any cosplay stuff going on in Georgia, and it's great to see that there's an event being put together between conventions. :bigtu: I'll be moving to GA (Warner Robins area) in August and I hope there're more cosplay events in the future that I can make it out to. I'll also be joining the LJ group as soon as I have an account there, and I look forward to future cosplay gettogethers/events! :jjacks:

I'm pretty sure you did. *nods* yeah, and everyone who PMed me should have atleast my house number ^_^

I can't wait! We're going to have so much fun. I told amechan she has to try and take atleast 300 pictures if not more

Who else is bringing a camera?

SMoogle
07-03-2004, 02:30 PM
I am!! as well as cookies, trash bags, and paper eating items, as promised ;) my camera can take about 200 pics, so i think i'm prepared! time to get cracking on my costume...i'm so lazy...

I've never been to stone mountain before either (being 8 doesnt count) so i'm really glad we're meeting up before hand. *giggles* I'm so excited!

Aleathia Burns
07-03-2004, 09:26 PM
Ha ha my roomate's got a computer oh yeah!!!! Sorry I got a little excited there, anyway I may have to change costumes if need be cuz, I am thinking about either coming as Gun Mage Yuna, Fuijin from Final Fantasy 8, or Quites. Right now the gloves of my costume are not working right so I am debating. Anyway I can;t wait!!! :hafha: :jjacks:

Toastersix
07-03-2004, 09:38 PM
Please go as Gun Mage? :heart:

I'm going as Gun Mage Rikku and It'd be fun to get pictures together!

Aleathia Burns
07-03-2004, 09:54 PM
Oh alright you got me :thumbsup: but please have mercy on my craftswomanship cuz I am a beginner. Oh should I bring my prop cuz I made it out of foam board, and it is big and flat for her gun, but oh well I tried. Anyway my gloves are just going to stay plain and a little darker than the rest of the costume until I can get the cash to get new ones and start all over again. So Gun Mage it is!!!! :jjacks: :heart:

Ayane_Eiketsu
07-04-2004, 11:41 AM
I'll be bringing a camera too!!! And candy and Pocky :dance:

I changed my costume again too(no surprise there...) My friend went back to her first costume as Rika Ishikawa and I'm going as Maki Goto (the Afurechau be in love video) But if I plan to go as her, I guess I better go start on it O.O; *grabs mom and runs to sewing room*

Props rock! I've got oodles of props for Remus and Sirius..


if I ever get off my lazy bum, I'll actually make a marauder's map too.. gah. I'm going mad from too many commissions.

oh! For the Final Fantasy fans.. how many of you like moogles? We had a commission for a moogle bag and I just finished it yesterday. Came out uber cute, anyone want to see pics?

Ayane_Eiketsu
07-06-2004, 12:27 PM
Yeah!! I wanna see pics. My friend loves moogles (and chocobos :p ).

And another question. Is anyone bringing a sign? For pictures or so people on the Marta can find us easier?(don't know how you could miss a group of people in costume though...)

Schuldig
07-09-2004, 04:42 PM
It's tomorrow:

anyone have a final count to how many people are showing up? Amechan and I are picking up 2 12 packs of juice and one of water as well as some chips or something. We'll be easy to spot..we're in matching Harry Potter robes. Everyone might want to make sure they bring money in case they need it.

How many peope should we expect at our house? we can fit five in our SUV. Those coming to our house: just look for the '04 YELLOW Toyota Celica GT and you'll find us. ^_^

Well unfortantly due to a 8 day trip to Anime Expo I am stuck working all weekend now. What that means is I am going to have to miss out on the Photo shoot. Everyone do have fun and take plently of pictures for me. I will have to catch the next one we organise.

I checked out your website Kei and its awsome! Most of the pages didn't come up but I could tell from the thumbnails what it was, I draw too I should show you some of my stuff, eventually I'll have a cosplay button on my soon to be website ^_^ that'll be by Halloween. lol

I think we all should plan this again after halloween though, That way all the cons are over with and we will have a bunch of costumes done. I hope everyone grabbed a map of the park that way we can just point out the exact spot we should met at ^_^ If not Ill scan the one Ayane and I have. and send it to yall, OKie see yall again after halloween! ^_^

Actually a few of us didn't show up until about 3:45 *_* But, everyone was pretty scattered through out the park. It was pretty hard to do since no one had been there before. But now we have a map and KNOW where to meet up for the one in....November?

I'm glad everyone had a good time! Can't wait for Otakon, Dragoncon, AWA.. etc! It was awesome to meet everyone! As soon as I can see about getting more space, I'll post the pics.. I think as soon as amechan gets home from work she'll be posting some on her username (mine's full )

07-12-2004, 01:15 PM
As long as it's not near Thanksgiving and not the first weekend (Amechan won't be able to get time off as we'll be coming back from Yaoicon Nov. 1st.

I'm flexiable with my weekends always being open. *shrugs* Anybody want to try for a theme second go around?

Kyouko_Takara
07-12-2004, 02:47 PM
YEAH!! Lets have a theme! That would be soo kool!! What would yall like to do? I think love hina would be kool, I wanna be naru though. Everyone just put out a bunch of suggestions and we can vote (V^_^)><(^_^V) Sry i get too excited about these things lol *_* :schitzo:

Morning Musume would be fun! Can we all do a dance for pictures and poses? LOL! Love Hina sounds good too! Final Fantasy is what originally came to mind for me. But I'm open, as long as I have time to make the costume.

what about Fruits Basket? That has a lot of characters and I was going to one day make a Kagurra costume.

Kyouko_Takara
07-12-2004, 11:37 PM
I was thinking Final Fantasy too, Maybe even have all of us to different dress spheres from 10-2 ^_^

07-13-2004, 01:11 AM
if we do fruit basket i take akito. :) ohhh, another suggestion could be a clamp theme.

Kyouko_Takara
07-13-2004, 01:44 AM
OKIE By The Way!! lol Tesa and I are hosting a halloween party at her house someday that weekend (October 29-31), We were going to do a whole bunch of fun things, like have our our performances, do kareoke, and all that good stuff, then maybe do a little trick or treating, and even go out to eat in costume ^_^ We hope any and everyone can make it, even thought there are all kinds of things going on at that time and plus me and her will be getting back from oni-con the weekend before but I still think yall should try and make it ... to Augusta lol Well Hey! we drove form there to get to stone mountain! lol

Schuldig
07-13-2004, 09:27 AM
Clamp would be fun. I'm sure if we did this around AWA a couple of my florida friends would love to wear their clamp stuff again. LOL

Oh, posted the rest of the pics in my gallery if anyone wants to see them.

07-14-2004, 12:37 AM
Halloween would be really cool! Morning masume would be fun, fruits basket would be cool, though i havnt actually watched it yet!!! I'm dragging out my Lulu costume for D*con, but I dont think i really want to wear it again past that, so I dont know about the final fantasy ten idea. though i guess it would make things easier on my part, wouldnt it? Hehe, i had so much fun on the picnic, though I did forget to rob you guys of some of the Pocky...though with the amount you guys bought i'm sure there will still be some left by the time halloween rolls around. hehe. i still need to post my pictures...I got some REALLY good ones in that xmas store....

07-14-2004, 11:23 AM
Maybe we could just do a general Jpop and Jrock Theme ... ?_? lol just a suggestion. Anything we pick im pretty much game for. Do yall want to met at stone mountain for next time? I think i'd be kool to get some different scenery ^_^

07-14-2004, 11:23 AM
SMoogle - did you and Kei decide if you were going to Otakon? If so, Amechan and I wanna hang out again! ^_^

07-14-2004, 11:24 AM
Jrock would give Amechan an excuse to finish her Myaku Kyo. LOL. Or our Kagarra costumes.

Ragresen
07-15-2004, 01:33 AM
Well the 2 hours to get into makeup for Kozi is a pain. To ask Carmila to do the makeup just for a picnic would be hard and of course I am guy and Wearing LeCeil Kozi would be odd since it is platforms and a dress basically. I have my Jinto Costume to wear thank god.

Kyouko_Takara
07-15-2004, 01:37 PM
We don't even have to do a theme but it would be kool. We should come up with an idea soon though so we can go ahead and get the costumes done, I don't wanna be sewing a painting things the night before like last time lol. How many people wanta copy of the tape we made? I must warn you that the camera angles ... well you can tell a guy shot most of it lol.

I am sooo late. My computer is finally getting fixed yaaay. I had sooo much fun at the picnic I want to do it again!!!! I also have to confess that getting kick out the gift store and terrerizing that poor Santa Statue was cool. I bet we all won't be getting anything for christmas this year. Let's not forget that we made our mark on stone mountain allright!!!! Hmm I wonder if security increase more now that we left?? Hmmm I shall ponder that. :untrust: :jjacks:

I like the general Jrock theme idea, i can always make something or other.....hm...

Soooo... Jrock and Jpop then? It sounds good to me I have a few picked out myself ^_^ This will be even more fun then the frist time! Do yall still wanna go to Stone Mountain or met somewhere between Augusta and Atlanta? That would be nice for Ayane and me ^_^ But whatever I guess. Should we start deciding on whos gonna bring what again?

I think it would be fair to travel to a more central atlanta/augusta location. Will you guys find a good place for us?

If we do another 'let's bring food' should we think of bringing warm foods? or is everyone good with sweets and fruit? ^_^

Are there any botanical gardens? Some place that could work for a j-rock kinda theme?

Oh, and about the Piedmont park thing, I figure we could rent out the bandstand? (if it costs we could split it if it isn't TOO much?)

Ragresen

Peidmont park is a not a good idea. There is a major lack of parking thing with that. Other wise it is good, but finding parking is bad. :(

Aleathia Burns
07-31-2004, 07:05 PM
Hey I just ask the pastor of a church that is across the street from me if we could have our picnic threre. It is just a small patch of land and we would have to provide a table and chairs, plus you guys can park your cars in the parking lot and my house is across so you guys can change or do what ya want. But anyway he said it would be fine if we are responsible for cleaning up our own mess. I have plenty of trash bags and I am not sure,but I do not think they have any church events during that time so what do you guys think? Oh and it is off of Chamblee Tucker road which I think is off of 85 north, I will do more research, but if not there is also a park near Tucker Highschool. Hell if that does not work you guys are welcomed to my place. It is not too small, but we have a nice back yard and plenty of room in doors. So what do you guys think? :jjacks: :rockon:

Well, I'm hoping that there are a lot more people at this next one because my mom and I were going to make some flyers and hand them out at the AWA. (good idea? bad idea?) so whenever we think of a place :bigtu: just let me know. Oh, and the church thing sounds cool. It would be a good place for pics! And my mom told me of a place called Mistletoe State Park but its far from Atlanta and more close to Augusta. :lost:

Aleathia Burns
08-01-2004, 09:09 PM
The flyers is a cool idea and if we get over 20 we should have it at a park or rent a place at a community center. But that may cost some cash but I think that should be a last resort as well. Still increasing more attedance ( :reverse: and security) would be great!!!

I dont know what we decided about themes....anyone have any ideas? I'm running out of time for my costumes... I can always improve my gothic lolita, use my lulu, or i'm almost done with my Darkstalkers Felicia....but i'm not sure if there's time for me to start something new and have it done before november ( I work slowly).

Cosplay Slumber Party?....I'm so in!!! But what about, 20 or 30 people show up? :thumbsup: Or we could have everyone go home later and the "original" group stay overnight. :bigtu:

Oh, and don't worry I haven't started on my costume yet either :waaaah: but if it isn't EXACTLY the way I want it, i'm wearing another costume. Cause Kyo's gonn be one of my best cosplays!! :rockon:
