Pictures from this day can be found here: http://images.cosplay.com/showgalle...500&ppuser=7163
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Date: Sat Oct 2nd
Time:1 p.m.
Location: Palace of Fine Arts
Elegant Gothic Lolita, Sweet Lolita and Gothic Aristocrat outfits are all welcome. Boys, don't be shy, you're welcome to come too :)

San Francisco won with an overall 5 votes. So it will be held at the Palace of Fine Arts. The Exloritorium is now in the Palace of Fine Arts so I figure a good meeting spot would be the large exloritorium sign at the enterence. Behind the Exploritorium is a large dome with collums which would be a perfect place to take pictures. There is a pond with swans and on the other side of the pond there is a grassy area where we can spread out a couple blankets and have a little picnic. If we wanted to we could walk to the beach about a block from there where you can see the golden gate bridge adn take some more pictures. There is free parking at the Exploritorium/Palace of fine arts. I'll bring my tea set, one blanket and hopefully some cold tea (since I won't be able to bring hot tea) and some cookies. If you can bring an extra blanket, some tea or some snacks that would be great but you don't have to. In case you don't knoe what it looks like here are a couple pictures:

Sorry I've been super busy and haven't had time to add up all the votes on all the places that I posted this poll. I will add them all up tonight and anounce where it will be held. It actually looks like it will probably be in San Francisco but I won't know for sure until I can check the polls on livejournal (which is blocked here on my work computer).

I'm honestly really sorry that I planend this for the same weekend as Ani-Magic but I'm not going to change the date. I'll probably host another egl gathering in a few month so anyone who misses this one because it happens during Ani-Magic (or for any other reason) can go to that one.

San Francisco won with an overall 5 votes. So it will be held at the Palace of Fine Arts. I updated my orginal post with all the details.

Well, since it's in SF, I will try to come, but the PFA is kind of a tough place to get to without a car, I think... Is anyone driving from Oakland or Berkeley, by any chance?

I hope you can make it. I don't have a car either and I'm comming all the way from San Jose. Yay, all morning on various forms of public transportation.

Just outta curiosity how whats the minimum amount of people going to the EGL gathering from all the forms? Since iam taking my younger sis with me my parents will probably hafta drop us of there but are a bit suspicious that were going dressed but not to a con.... they will want a good crowd there since they think Freaks live in SF and that this is some type of scam to kid napp us.. -_-;;; Thats myoverprotective asian parents for you....

prettypopcandy, that'd be great if you could swing by this way. just keep me posted :)

If I go, I'll be bringing my nice camera (as opposed to my far less nice digital)... I can offer the same deal as I posted in the WIC-TOP thread:

(copy & paste!)

So, I've been getting more into cosplay photoshoots lately, and I'm very excited to come and take photos of people, as well as cosplaying myself. However, I still use a film camera, and film (I use Kodak Portra) and developing gets expensive after a few rolls. I'll try to get at least 1 photo of as many people as I can, but if there's anyone who's interested in kind of a mini photoshoot (a series of 5 photos, for example), I will develop and mail the actual prints to you at cost. I can also e-mail scans of the photos. If I get at least a few people (about 5-7 would be ideal) who are interested, I can do this for about $5 per person.

Let me know if you're possibly interested, so I can bring enough film. Also, for those taking photos, I'd be happy to do a straight exchange--photos of me for photos of you.

PM me for examples of my work.

I'm guessing there will be anywhere between 10 and 20 people there. Your parents could stick around a few minutes to meet all of us and make sure they don't think we're crazy, evil people. I brought my 11 year old brother with me to the last gathering I hosted. I asure you nothing inapropriate will be going on. I could send you pictures of the last egl teaparty I hosted or even talk to them on the phone if either of those things would help asure your them that we really are just a bunch of girls who want to play dress up, take some pictures and have a good time in a safe and public place.

Woot! Can't wait till saturday! I was just wondering what time you think we will be done? I guess just whenever we feel like it, which will probably be around 4:30 - 5:00-ish?

I figure we'll just stay until we run out of film, stop having fun or need to go home. I'm going to guess that would be around 4 or so. If anyone needs to leave early they are free to do so. If we end up staying later than 4 that's fine by me.

Ooh~ I'd love to go.
I've only got one EGL dress to wear though, but this sounds fun.
I don't know if I'll be there, but I'll try.

I'm glad you had a good time. Sorry I was late. It's all evil San Francisco's fault for being so confusing and having such awful traffic. Thanks for posting your pics. We'll definitly be having anther egl gathering in a few months. The next one will be in San Jose. I'll try to be on time for that one :)

Mid January, but that's just a guess. It will probably be at the Japanese Friendship Garden in Kelly Park in San Jose. I'll send you a PM (and make a new post here) once I figure out all the details.
