What was the date and location? If its during spring break, I can probably go!

Hehe I was just about to post this XD;;

I think the current place is good, lots of room & open fields but if we can think of a better location (that has a bathroom lol >_>) we can vote on it. ^^

I'm interested! What is this 'current place', for those of us who didn't attend last year?

Sorahana
01-21-2006, 10:07 PM
Last year it was held @ Rose Tree Park in Media,PA which is right outside of Philly. One year they had it at Fairmount Park and in 03 it was at Ridley Creek Park. Past two times it was held at Rose Tree Park, but in 05 we had a problem seeing as they had the bathrooms shut T_T lol.

Cool, that's relatively close to my house. But do we have any idea about dates? I know that the Cherry Blossum Festival meetup is on April the 9th, so that's not a good date.

Well, uh, personally, I'd love it if the picnic could be moved somewhere further west. ^___^; Philly is a rather long drive for Aine-chan and I. [Four hours according to Mapquest.] Last spring we had planned a photoshoot in Harrisburg [another LONG drive], to which only Aine-chan, myself, and ChibiToon showed up for. So... not to say that I think people will skip out on something larger like an official Northeast Cosplayer Picnic... but the Harrisburg experience kinda turned me off from going on long, expensive roadtrips.

Is there a more central location in PA that would work?

I'm interested too. Whether or not I can go depends where it is. :P I live around the Philly area so anywhere near there is good for me. :3

Misa-chan
01-22-2006, 04:14 PM
I think some people asked for a more western location for it last year, but the problem with that would be none of the organizers know that area well enough to plan something like this, and Rose Tree is accessible to the 95/Airport/Highway area but if people suggest some nice places maybe she'll consider? <3

final_memories
01-22-2006, 04:31 PM
well I'm close to Philly, so that would be easy for me, but I wouldn't really mind if it moved a little further away! As long as everyone is happy.

*points to what she said*. Yea people wanted it either further west or south and since I was made organizer, I know neither of those areas well enough to move it to either of those places =/.
I want everyone to be happy, but its so hard with people coming from all places in NY/NJ/MD/PA ;_;.

Rose Tree/Ridley Creek were good spots since they were accessible from I-95 and whatnot. I was concerned with doing it @ Rose Tree again since there was a bathroom issue last year ^_^;;.

As for time of year, in 04 it was toward the end of April, and last year it was in the middle of May XD.

Middle-Late May sounds cool to me, since that's when I get out of school!

Runi-Chan
01-25-2006, 07:40 PM
Me too...I really should get more involved with the NE Cosplayers thing because I'm in what is considered Central PA.

..heck, I might even cosplay Sailor Saturn.

..where exactly is the Cherry Blossom parade? I've wanted to attend, but I don't know when or where it is..*cough*I'd make Pleinair to wear to that...*cough*

Tess
01-25-2006, 11:27 PM
Rurouni, the Cherry Blossom Festival is held in Washington DC every spring. It's pretty enormous, with special events held throughout April. If you check in this forum, there is a thread for a cosplay.com meet-up that Aine-chan and I are hosting. It's to be held on April 9th, which is the day of the big parade and the sakura matsuri [a Japanese-style street festival]. We'd love you to come. ^__^

@-->--- Tess

Runi-Chan
01-26-2006, 04:13 PM

I'm gonna say aim for late april, early may, simply because anime boston is late may, as are many finals/graduation.


And were Demri and I the only 2 ppl who managed to find the bathroom next to the park?

Mistress_Aine
01-30-2006, 12:36 PM
I agree with Tess. I say make it more centralized. AS for the date I would vote for late May as classes will be over and with graduating (finally, yay for college) it would just be easier for me.

I agree about the date thing, I have finals earlier this year too. >_< As for the moving the location I'm not sure if Rose Tree is final or anything, but I can try looking for something else that's convenient for everyone who's coming down through 95 and for the more central people.

And were Demri and I the only 2 ppl who managed to find the bathroom next to the park?

Would that be the gas station bathroom? Pretty nice for a gas station XD but I wished the park would've opened up their bathrooms if people were going to be visiting, it was a Saturday -.-;;

01-30-2006, 03:58 PM
I have to agree with Mistress Aine about the date, later May would be a lot easier, what with getting out of classes at that time. As for the location, as long as its within a two hour driving range, I think I could deal.

ChibiTifa05
01-30-2006, 10:48 PM
Yup, late May would be really perfect. If I do go, I might bring Rose (FMA). Either her Holy Mother Attire, regular white dress, or BlehBallroomdress!Rose.

BotMan
01-31-2006, 08:15 PM
well..i would love to join...if anyone want me to come....look like fun...first cosplay picnic i ever join..if i come o.o;;

Mistress_Aine
01-31-2006, 08:31 PM
Depending on the date (and my money situation at the time) I will definitely try to come. I will probably wear Soi Fong. Don't know which one yet. Will have to wait to se the weather.

That would be wonderful, thank you. I tried searching online for public parks and gardens in central PA, but without a decent knowledge of the area, it becomes a bit hard. [I live in western Maryland.]

I only know of arboreteums and the three parks in the area: Fairmount Park, Ridley Creek Park, and Rose Tree Park.
But yes...shall look into other locations X3. And I guess we shall aim for a date in May.

Runi-Chan
02-06-2006, 02:56 PM
Oh, I so wanna come this year. I don't have any finalized plans for it..probably Jio because I'm on a kick of the manga he's from..

Dymatrex
02-14-2006, 11:02 PM
I'm up for it, it'll just depend on the date because that will determine if I need to get a ride or drive myself down there...

Yes, yes, please make a date! I'm probably going to Philly for spring break, so I'd love to come if I can.

*delurks*
As long as you don't mind having someone along who hasn't been to cosplay.com in a long while, I'm all for coming (Sometimes I just need to take a few months off to escape all of the cosplay drama). As long as its in the Philly area, at least :) I haven't been able to go to one of the picnics since we had the one at Ridley and before that the one in Fairmount park - was that really going on 4 years ago?!
*relurks*

Sorahana
02-24-2006, 07:35 AM
I think its decided the picnic will be held at either Ridley or Rose Tree Park. Which do you people prefer?
And I guess for date we'll aim for May XD.

Mistress_Aine
02-24-2006, 11:05 AM
My vote is still sometime toward the end of May. Graduating from college and such.

ChibiTifa05
02-24-2006, 11:10 AM
I agree with Aine. End of May would be sufficient. Most of us are in college. ^^ Plus, I still need to figure out when and where I'm gonna have my summer gathering..@_@..

Whichever is furthest west. ^^; I really hate 4-hour roadtrips, so I'm not promising I'll make it, but I will try. It's just hard for me to drive that far, twice in a day. Makes gas uber expensive, too. ;_;

I know the the gang and I will come. We haven't misssed a spring picnic yet. It seems to always happen in May anyhow. ^^ Same Bat-time. Same Bat-channel. lol Just... umm.... stay away from Memorial Day weekend. A lot of people hit the parks plus there are cons going on. : )

It seems like the only days that would work would be April 29th, May 6th, or May 13th. I know the two Saturdays after that for people are bad due to cons and whatnot.

03-05-2006, 05:51 PM
Blah, I can't make it to any of those dates. I'll still be at college down at Salisbury and the driving required would be just too much.We're talking about a four hour trip. Oh well, maybe next year! I hope those who are able to come have a fantastic time!

;______; Awww!! End of May is out since thats AnimeBoston and a bunch of people are going to that, and someone's wedding is the weekend before that and people are going to that too I believe =/.
I want you and others to come :O.

Are there any other date suggestions?!

Just get a date set and I'll try to be there. My trip to Philly next weekend is shot(I really wanted to see the Cherry Blossom Festival too) so later in the year would be great. Don't know about being able to dress or not but as long as it's on the weekend I can prolly arrange my schedul to make it and still do everything I want to do in Philly.

Hi, I'm former con goer, haven't gone to cons since the big Katsucon blizzard a couple years ago. Anyways, I occasionally check the different cosplay sites and saw that the yearly picnic is happening nearby.

I can bring my camera gear and portable strobe lights to photoshoot. I can burn the photos onto CDs on my laptop during the day as well.

I'll probably bring my cosplaying friend Stefan (tall guy with the bandana and seems to know everyone at cons).

I have tons of photos from past cons but they are all prints. I've gone all digital now and am looking forward to taking costume photos with my digital SLR.

If you know how to get to Any of these main highways, it is reletivly easy to get to Rosetree. Route 1 ( aka Township Line / City Line Ave ), 476 ( aka Blue Route), 76 or the PA Turnpike.

Basicly, if you can get to 476, take it to the Route 1 Exit (springfield, NOT the Baltimore Pike Exit, both are technically route 1), Take route 1 west, You are now on whats called "The Media Bypass", Take the exit for 252. if you are going west on route one, it should be a right onto 252 (252 north i think),
You take this, less then a mile, Rosetree will be on your right.

Or if you are more inclined to use Mapquest...
1671 North Providence Road Media PA USA 19063

Thats the address to Rose Tree Park. Enjoy, and i hope to see you all there.

I hope this was Helpfull

I know that I can take Septa's bus route 118 and that will get me to Rose Tree Park (I've never actually been there). Does anyone know exactly whereabouts that the bus stops? (Septa's website lists "PROVIDENCE AV, ROSE TREE PARK") and where abouts that is approximately from where we'll be meeting?

Sorry to be a bother, but I don't drive and don't have any friends right with cars at the moment... and I usually don't visit the suburbs out in that direction ^_^;;

Unfortunately, most of the crew won't be able to attend the picnic since the majority will have left for Japan before that weekend...or have other obligations. We'll miss you all!
But the mythical land you speak of is actually Dave & Busters on columbus blvd/ aka delaware ave in philly. Which is where we went after the picnic last year. :)

::THUD!!!::

THIS PICNIC WAS SILLY!!!!
Seriously, I need to spend more time outside, it's really nice, aside from the gunblade sodemies and walks to Gas stations to use ze bathroom.

That aside, I had a great time at this thing, despite the fact that we have a smaller turn out than last year, at least this time around I got to interact with more ppl aside from Demri and Dragoon42. And while we're at it, hurray for DSes!!! Everyone looked great, and props to the KH/FF cosplayers for the Squenix love.

Anywho, don't expect any pics to be posted by me, seeing how my lazy ass didn't take any. Neoangelwink did, and with enough prodding, she'll post em in time. Aside from that, I'll see those who are attending animeNEXT and Otakon at....well, animeNEXT and Otakon, with the Sex-blade of course (Hurray for props I only assisted in constructing making me popular, HUZZAH!). And if you're feeling lucky, you can always IM me (it's should be in my information, if not, PM me) or if you want to see me yell at the internet on a semi-regular basis, my LJ's Loudnbothered.

I guess I could include the extras, but they won't be edited. Most of the extras are basically the same shots so they almost look like duplicates. And some of them are just "ehh" kinda photos but you can have them in the WINZIP files. (Same for everyone else)
