Hi.
I'm originally from Massachuetts, but I am attending school in Nyc. When I go home over the summer, I am increddibly lonesome, and bored. So, I was wondering if anyone from MA would like to get together and have a costume making party one day for Otakon,or anyother convention. Well, we don't have to do just that..We could also hang out too. ^_^;;; I dunno, it seemed like a good idea..

I'm from Plymouth, and I also live in Swansea as well. What city/town are you from?

I'm from Northampton, and my friend is from Florence. Another of my friends is also from Northampton. We're all pretty close, so we all decided to come here. :)

Actually, today... well, last night, we had an all-night party,(it's still going now). Only a few of us are still awake. Some of worked on costumes, but not all. ;)

^_^;; I don't even know where Northampton and Florence are, so I'm guessing it's pretty far from the plymouth area.. ;___;

Peabody? I've heard of that, but I don't know where it is...;___;
Aw, you don't have anyone to go with? If I can get a big enough car, you can go with me. I'm was planning on driving, and I worry about driving by myself to a place I don't know. I say "Big enough car" because I also might have to pick up people in NYC and bring them to Otakon.
I just thought of something. I'll be turning 21 in July, so I should be able to rent a car,...Right?..

Most places require you to be 25 to rent a car. Northampton is north of Springfield. Peabody is on the North Shore.

Hmm, I see. I'll have to work something out.
Anyway, even if the costumes aren't for Otakon, I'd love to get together for a costume party.

Vialoi, have you been down to the northampton area at all, I'm friends with Hotohori and cyankirby here. What hotel did you plan on staying at? Maybe if we can't get together here in the state, we can hang out together at the con itself, any intrest in raiding the dealer room early by chance?? :-)

I believe I am staying at the Sherton. Heh, I'd love to raid the dealers room early. ^_^
I'm sorry to say, that I don't think I've ever been in the northampton area.

Northampton is a small sorta artsy town in Western Mass. It's not too hard to find...at least to me. Costume parties are always good... I should be working on my bahamut so I don't have to cram it in to the last few days. Which I prob. will anyway...
MAC you're finally on! It's a miracle!
I don't know about anyone else but hanging out and hitting the dealers room seems like a great idea! Gotta go after those cool pins!
My friends and I will be at the Wyndham. Not too close but that's 'cause some people in my room were dragging their feet(not mentioning names or anything...)

Hey, I'll be living in Wellesley, MA this summer! I think it'd be cool if we all got together.... Maybe we could take pictures, too.... Anyone got a nice digital camera? :)

I have a 3.1 megapixal fujifilm camera! It takes pretty good pictures although I haven't uploaded any to my computer to print out yet. And it has a short video mode too... Pretty cool but it's more of a picture camera rather then movie camera.
I can't wait to put it to the test at Otakon!
And yeah, I think that getting together for a while, maybe working on costumes, and taking some pictures would be awesome! How long will you be in Mass. over the summer? I will be gone during May for a school thing but after that I'll be around for the rest of the summer.

Taking pictures is always very fun too. I have a Fijifilm digital camera too. I forgot the megapixal though..But, It takes really good pictures. I also can borrow my dad's professional camera,if he lets me..
and if anyone wants to do a little extra work, we could do video;because I also have a DV camera.
I've heard of Wellesly before. I think I might have played basketball there one time for my high school team. North hampton is artsy? Now I want to go..;__;
I get home from school in May, and I go back to school in NYC in late August. I really hope we can get together sometime, it sounds like we'll have fun. ^_^

I'll be living in Wellesley permanently with my S/O starting this summer. ^_^ So I'll be there for a long time! We SHOULD have a bg cosplay get together.... I'm all for it!

And.... Is Northhampton the current suggested meeting place? :thumbsup:

That would be good for me (for obvious reasons). Northampton has a lot of unconventional dressers walking the street so that if we do take pictures outside, I don't think we'll stand out too much. :D It's easy to find on a map, just follow the Connecticut River. But it seems like people will be around for the whole summer which makes finding a time easier! :)

It does sound like fun! ^_^

Blaze! Hello! U never pmed me! I'm mad at u! *just kidding*

neway... Pics sound like a good idea. I'd bring my polaroid, but, it's just too bulky. If we did raid the dealer's room first, we'd probably have no trouble finding eachother. Vialoi, just look for someone with a stitched pointed hat, a huge dragon, or a Tasuki, we'll all be together. :P

Lol, Okay. I'll try my hardest to look for you. Although, I'm usually pretty bad with recognizing people, but I'll do my best. ^_^

But anyway, maybe as the summer gets closer we'll decide when, where, and if people can meet. Don't really know what my schedule is after June 11th but wheneve people decide to meet, I'll let my friends know. The summer seems so far off...

Vialoi, well...hotohori's got the right idea about who to look for I don't know if you could miss a big Black Waltz, a Roy, and a Tasuki going mad in the dealer room, I think we'd be the loudest ones there. Just look for a big pair of black and navy blue wings and that stiched hat we'll be there. I don't have a polariod or a digital camera, but my little camera works just fine (light permitting) :-)

Yep! Sounds good. have to find more time for my costume though.
Hey, Mel, when does your dad need the punch-thing back? Just a question.

neway, we also have to get to the auctions this time around! I was a drawing of Squall!!!:love:

Blaze

Sam, you WAS a picture of squall???

*LOL*

He hasn't said anything about it just yet, just don't plan on keeping it forever I would think. :) Yeah, I wouldn't mind hitting the auctions myself, but then again hitting the art room before it closed wasn't a bad idea, stuff was going cheap.

Hahahaha! Oops! YES! I WAS a pic of Squall. Sure I was! I WANT a pic of Squall! I'm sorry!

And no, I won't keep it.

Still this'll be fun eh'?
