RoseP: your not the only one coming from NJ, ask around and maybe some one could give you a ride? who knows.

XSzero: great to have you with us, I'm very curious to see what you wear.

Carrie: It'd be great to see your new dress, but you could wear something you allready have if you can't get it done in time.

~Anna

We are l33t ninjas...dresses are no nos, are all only for girlies, and cross dressing main characters from a certain Final Fantasy

Rymel
09-01-2004, 01:56 AM
technically ninjas would do it for espionage...and when they want to feel pretty XD

this anti-dress sentiment coming from the man with squall's crotch in his sig...o.O;

Lil
09-01-2004, 12:52 PM
Yeah if when on the schedule it turns out I have off that day.... I'm going to want someone to go with me too. But I'm not driving to the city :/ I'll meet someone at a train station tho... Carrie you're in Pt. Pleasent do you usually take the train up from there?

TheAnarCHris
09-01-2004, 04:18 PM
Si, el Carrie takes the train up...but she may or may not be leaving on Saturday to spend the night w/ me. But let me know what's going on, I may be able to put you up for the night (Note, this only applies to Lil, we go back a lil, this isnt a open invite to all) and Saturday mayhaps.

Lil
09-01-2004, 10:25 PM

Just wanted to point out that EGA stands for Elegant Gothic Aristocrat...not Adult ^^;;;

Sounds cool though, I might come :D

Edit: Make that I am coming XD It's a Sunday though so hopefully my 'rents won't stop me. >.>

AnimeAngelBlue
09-02-2004, 11:14 PM
Hopefully I'll be there but I don't think my outfit completely falls into EGL, but its hopefully similiar enough ^_^

-Jae

dressdragn
09-03-2004, 09:36 AM
yeah, but Aristocrat sounds so pretensious. I use them kind of interchangeably.

BlueCA: I'm sure your outfit will be fine! I'm not being strict.

So far for defintly we've got:
Anna
Jamie B.
Chris
Carie

TheAnarCHris
09-07-2004, 12:11 PM
Speaking on behalf of Dressdragn, she's allowing all sorts of freaks and nutjobs to come to this thing, EGL related or not...for example, Neoangelwink is coming in EGL stuffs, but I'll just be sticking to FF related costume(s?). So yeah, one's BF/GF/Dog can show up in whatever I suppose.

And xsamuraizer0 (aka Charles) has Dressdran talked to you about brining your Kakashi costume to this thing. If not, PM me or her (hell, ur more than welcomed to track me down on AIM/AOL if you want).

xsamuraizer0
09-07-2004, 01:50 PM

Well, we dont need you to wear it as so much just bring it...let me explain.

As of this past Saturday, Anna drafted myself and Neoangelwink into her Naruto skit for Katsucon. When we found out the characters were we already making costumes for we taken (Sakura and Sasuke), we came up of a small list of other possibilites. Master Kakashi top my choices and when asked about how we were going to make the costume Dressdragn suggested that I borrow the costume off of you, seeing how we're almost the same height. So since we're both hitting this event up, and if ur cool with it. I was wondering if u would mind bringing the costume to see if I would fit in it, in the situation i would need to borrow it for katsucon. If u not down with ppl wearing ur costume, it's cool, but i figured i would ask now so to see what our status would be.

TheAnarCHris
09-08-2004, 12:50 PM
Having an EGL costume doesnt prohibit one from coming to this event...and why not take a train, like Cyn and Blucosplayangl are?

Sadistic_Mana
09-08-2004, 03:43 PM
and like me too XD

Is it okay if I come in costume? I will be cosplaying EGL Mana but I am not sure how the area is there if it is okay to come in costume. ^_^

TheAnarCHris
09-08-2004, 04:06 PM
Um...There should be a changing area in the...um...area...I dunno, Dressdragn knows her campus more than I do...makes sense no?

dressdragn
09-08-2004, 04:27 PM
Blue CA: I'm doing sweet style too!

I'm not enforcing a strict dress code for guests. but please try not to show up in jeans and a t shirt. Also non-ega/egl/costume pepople proably won't be in photos.

freakyA: I'm puting the event together, but I certinly can't make it great with out everyone showing up and partispating. Also got the OK from pratt by tacking on "Pratt Anime Club Presents" in front of the event title on flyers and stuff around here.

~Anna

dressdragn
09-08-2004, 04:31 PM
The area btw. the train station and the campus should be fine for walking around in costume. You'll be right near an art school with a fashion dept. so the locals are pretty used to it.

just use coman sence, if your in a revealing outfit bring a coat, if your a male wearing female clothes try weraring a trench, be careful on the subways ect.

I very much hope the bathrooms are unlocked (should be) but if it comes down to it, bring a photo ID and I can sign people in to my studio and dorm room.

Ok, just a few minor details i want to ask about...

First, is it ok to come in Punk/Punx Lolita clothes?

Second, like cyber wolf asked, do we have to/should we bring food to the tea party?

Last, how long is the party? (from what time to what time?)

neoangelwink
