View Full Version : Northridge and San Fernando Cosplay Gathering

05-05-2004, 10:52 AM
Hello i was wondering if anyone would like to have a cosplay gathering her ein the Northridge and San Fernando Valley area. Even if you don't cosplay it doesn't matter it is just a way to meet new people and get to know each other. If you have any question feel free to message me alright. I plan on having it perhaps at the end of May or early June on a Saturday just about a month before Anime Expo. If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to message me alright thanks!!!

I think that is a great idea. Being a San Fernando Valley Anime fan myself (I live in Van Nuys) I have always wanted to meet fellow anime and videogame fans around this area. It seems that Cosplay.com is very east coast based and I think we Southern Californians need some love as well. :)

Well I think it is a great idea and I would gladly offer an assistance if you need it.

You can Email me at EKibrick@hotmail.com or if you use AIM you can IM me at Tapdancinsalmon. I would love to see this follow through.

Are you guys kidding? We have a ridiculous amount of so cal events, and with Admin organizing alot of them i think we may be more represented then the east coast. Just of the top of my mind theres E3, PMX, AX, usually a campout and some form of picnics. Just cruise the site and keep you eyes open. Most of these cons have cosplay.com events.

Me and My 3 buds are from the Van Nuys area and we have some 7 friends who are all cosplayers and love doing things. so many events so little time. We should get together and have some type of meeting.Just an idea? :dance:

Yes I agree. I am thinking maybe gathering at a park or something. Somewhere were we can all just bring food and hang out and talk anime.

Does anyone have any idea where they may like it to be held and on what date it should be held on? before or after anime expo?

05-27-2004, 09:12 PM
Yo, ShinjiEva01. Just give a time and place.

05-27-2004, 09:28 PM
I think before Anime Expo.

That way, we all know each other when we see each other in costume at the convention.

And then we can be all like "Hi! How's it going? You're looking great!" etc. etc. etc.

It never hurts to have a few more people to say "Hi" too ^^

How about this next friday near CSUN? It would be nice to meet other cosplayers? We could meet at the public library right across the street from csun. I can bring some other cosplayers? Like around 3p.m. what do you thinK?

Sooo... Friday, June 18th at 3pm

at the Library across the street from CSUN?

06-09-2004, 08:59 PM
That sounds like a good idea, but after we meet up at the library we may want to move from there, dont know how much a quite library would want rowdy otaku around.

Suggestion: give at least 1 month's notice so people can see the thread and make plans to come. Sorry no one came. :(

06-18-2004, 06:12 PM
Sorry to hear it. I had hoped to come, but I had a work overload today (still coping, currently).

06-18-2004, 06:32 PM

Yeah... I'll be dressed as Rip Van Winkle. Only going Friday. My badge will have the name "Amidala" on it. If you see me, come and say "hi" tell me who you are or I'll be like "who are you?"

06-22-2004, 04:54 PM
On Friday, I'll be Sirius Black with a bunch of other Harry Potter cosplayers.

My badge says "Gainax Boy" on it.

Flag me down if you see me ^___^

I will be at anime Expo as well. I will be there for all 4 days and I will be dressed as Naruto. My badge will most likely say TAKKUN on it. Hope to see you guys there.
