Meeting the demand for a cosplay phooshoot/picnic on the East coast, the NYO!/, Otaku Army, and LI cosplayers are arranging for a free photoshoot in Long Island this October. It's on a Sunday, and should the weather be nice, we're expecting a good turn out. More info as it comes.

Eisenhower Park - Field 6!!

Directions by mass transit ((mostly from Penn Station))::
1. From NYC and points West: Take the long island railroad from penn station to the hempstead station. At hempstead cross the street to the bus station, take the N70/N71/N72 ((Any one of these 3 busses will do)) to Eisenhower Park. ((I don't know the stop off hand, but if you ask the driver, he'll tell you when.)) Also the bus runs down the block where the park is, you're just gonna have to walk abouts once you hit the park ^_^ It's also about 5 minutes or so once you leave the bus station. ^_^

OR

You can take the N35 from the Hempstead terminal towards Westbury and get off at Stewart Avenue in front of the park entrance. ((Much less walking than the 71,72))

2. For points East: There's one or two ways to do this if you don't drive. You can take the train to Jamaica and switch to the Hempstead line. ((Since Hempstead is the last stop)) Or get to the Sunrise Mall and take the N70/N71/N72 bus that is headed for Hempstead and get off at Eisenhower Park. ^_^ Sorry bout that... no easy way to get there from this way.


Directions by Car::
Local Directions: Once your on the Meadowbrook parkway, take it to the RT-24 E (Hempstead Turnpike) exit - exit number M5- toward EAST MEADOW/FARMINGDALE. After exiting the parkway heading eastbound. The park will be on your left after the first traffic light. Continue down 2 more lights to the entrance on your left. ((I will double check to make sure its 2 lights I believe it is))


I will have other directions if anyone asks for them ^_^ I have no problem helping out with directions, for people out coming from farther areas ^_^ So pm me if you need something more specific.

We will be at lot 6 for the picnic... it is NOT a reserved picnic area so no alcoholic beverages, and no bbq equpiment please. The picnic should start around 11:30 ^_^ and run til around 5 ^_^


There aren't a lot of tables, but there are some, so please bring blankets with you and don't forget your lunch ^_^

See you all there ^_^

Hi, I know I've never posted here before, but I'll attempt to be more involved~

I've cosplayed a couple times, not as much as all of you, but it seems the most popular character was Kero-chan, which was made by my "uberly" cool friend, BlueCosplayAnge..

Anyway, I was just wondering what time was the meeting? **Still unsure about being able to come or not, but I'll make every attempt to~

Anyway I feel like I should bring something, last time had only a bit food. Its looks like this time is going to have alot of people! Only 1 costume for me this time ^^;. but I dunno which one, can ya'll help me out?
-Young Lara Croft
-Resident Evil Code V -Claire
-Jet Set Radio -Mew
-FF8 Rinoa (but I did that so resently)
-Resident Evil 3 -Jill

And 1 more thing, will it still happen if it rains that day?

Chiri
09-15-2004, 09:27 PM
Hmmm. Maybe myself and a few of my friends can go? I have absolutely no idea. Friends meaning from Cosplay.com (Kulluan77, Xzial, redeyesarucard, Lain Iwakura.....) But like I said dunno... (we are from Southampton)

Chiri
09-15-2004, 10:02 PM
Hmmmmmm...I think I can go. I have a ride to get there, I just need to run it by the parental figures. I believe it would be no problem to go, though.

I am wondering who to go as: Seras Victoria (Hellsing...Cant bring Halconnen due to size compared to the size of Todd's car O_O I think my cannon is bigger than his car?!) or Tasuki from Fushigi Yuugi's 2nd OVA. I am leaning towards Tasuki though....smaller prop! ^_^...I haven't worn the costume in well over a year, too.

Biku-Chan
09-17-2004, 06:38 PM
What should I bring for yummies?!

RoboGundam6
09-20-2004, 12:30 PM
The only anime like snack I can think of where those Pokemon fruit snacks ^^;. Those were MMMMMmmmmmm good!....and pocky I'll go to the Huge Asian super market in Hempstead and find something there.

I know they have kinky tea there! O_o;

sephygoth
09-20-2004, 03:06 PM
Tea?!? can we do tea? TAZO tea? :love: that would most rock

Biku-Chan
09-20-2004, 03:11 PM
Well, I want to actually make something. x.x; What do you people want? I might or might not make it.

AnimeAngelBlue
09-20-2004, 04:10 PM

There is a starbucks in area... however... you do need a car to get there....


Well, I want to actually make something. x.x; What do you people want? I might or might not make it.
I'm prolly gonna make chocolate chip cookies, and my buddy Ali-chan always makes brownies... so whatever you wanna make, go for it ^_^

Biku-Chan
09-20-2004, 05:50 PM
Ok, I have something in mind then... I dunno... would people want riceballs? I don't know if I'd have time to make them, but I'd try if I could. I just don't know how many people would want them...

Chiri
09-20-2004, 07:06 PM
Rice Balls sound good! ^_^''' I think Xzial (Todd) and I are going to this. Still dunno who I would cosplay as. Maybe wear my Tasuki costume? There are two/three pics of it in my gallery.

Biku-Chan
09-20-2004, 09:29 PM
I saw go for it! Any of them would be welcome! ^.^

RoboGundam6
09-21-2004, 11:32 AM
<--has a tendonsy to eat alot ^^;. i'LL TRY TO SHARE...not! J/k I always share...to a degree.

YA'll know what I mean by kinky tea right? its those Chinese/ or Japanese tea that suppost to...well you know. I doubt it works anyway, and I love Jasmine tea SSSSOOOO much, & peach. I hope to get the iced tea bottles of that stuff to bring!

I saw on the LI cosplay page that its going to have a contest, is this right? Beacuase that sounds awsome! I guess bribing with food is out of the question? LOL J/k. We all enter fair & square, if it happening! ^_^.

AnimeAngelBlue
09-21-2004, 11:51 AM
bribing of crazy judges with food, prolly will not work lol...

sephygoth
09-21-2004, 02:47 PM
crap then, what should I bring?! :lost:
those iced tea bottles good idea actually, go for it
Biku ya mon, riceballs sound great, krispy kind? break your teeth kind?
So far it look like a few of us agreed on FF7 in particular for some reason, who else will we see? Least we can run around outside...unlike cons,not enough room to build up speed in short hallways :untrust:

Elvenwolf
09-21-2004, 03:18 PM
My cosplay might be done in time...stuck between two choices. Oh, is there a bathroom nearby to change in? Don't really want to be walking around in the open (or even driving around) with wigs on and whatnot. Riceballs sound good, as long as there's a vegetarian option >.> I'd like to bring something too...do we want more solid-type of food or snacks?

Feroh
09-21-2004, 06:09 PM
Thanks for the heads-up on the picnic, Biku! ^_^

I would absolutely love to go - if I'm not stuck at rehearsal for the show I'm doing right now, I will be there. Any idea how late the festivities will be going on? Once I have my rehearsal schedule for next weekend I'll know if i can work that out for sure. I will, of course, come supplied with plenty of Pocky, and I'm sure I'd be able to cook something too. Any suggestions?

I'd also have to go with my AC Cloud costume, so I hope there's no objection to that.

Hope to see you all there!

-Feroh

sephygoth
09-21-2004, 10:43 PM
if everyone brings food maybe I can actually gain wt.
any ideas for for outside stuff/props? frizz? Hacky? Music?
jus wonderin :dance:

AnimeAngelBlue
09-21-2004, 11:47 PM
Alright... here's to answer the prop question... no realistic guns or weaponry... if you are going to have a gun, please either it has to look fake, or have an orange tip, we are in a public park, and I'd rather not have to follow you guys to jail. As for anything made of live steel, if you are over 21, and are using it for picture purposes, I will allow it only for the pictures, after that it goes away, either into your car, or into mine, and it will be returned to you when you leave. The same will go for airsoft, airguns, or the like. I'd just rather be safe than sorry ^_^

RoboGundam6
09-22-2004, 10:20 AM
So I guess my flamethrower is out of the question T_T;. Well we can always chase rodents!

Yes there was a bathroom near by last time, ^^;. Don't try to hop the fence folks, I sux at that!

Anyway still what is this contest? If there is one...

AnimeAngelBlue
09-22-2004, 12:56 PM
Shall be a costume competition, dunno what areas of competition I'll be looking at yet however, ((I will not be competing and I'm looking for another judge ^_^)) If you'd like to do a mini masquerade type thing, it'd be good to get peoples opinions on this first, ne? Either way it should be fun

TheAnarCHris
09-22-2004, 02:40 PM
I'm all about being the other judge, seeing how I'm easy bought, I mean NOT easily bought....heheh.

As for the mention FF7 group I think we have....
Cloud Stife (AC Verison)- Starwind824
Tifa Lockheart (FF7 Verison)-Biku Chan
Aeris Gainsborough (FF7 Verison)-Neoangelwink

AnimeAngelBlue
09-27-2004, 10:27 AM

"JUMP MASTER CHIEF, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THAT'S HOLY JUMP!!!!"

Errr..........I have no freaking clue what's going on in terms of photographers, my press dude has disappeared off the face of the earth for the time being, so the more the merrier it is I suppose.
