I would certainly be up for it, but I won't be able to attend anything until mid April, when I'm home from college for a bit. ^-^;

I'm up for a gathering. As long as it doesn't conflict with work. XD;; (Which pretty much means just my days off & weekends -- since I work to either 3pm or 4 pm on the weekends.)

So how about we try to see if any of our friends(who we know are into anime/ect..) would be interested.

We have time to actually look at everyone's scheduel, and plan accordingly, as well as where to meet, and what to do.

(I am not the best at setting things up, but I try..lol)

I've been away for quite some time, so my memory's a bit fuzzy... Are we looking for a park-ish place or what? I suggest Red Wing Park, where the Sakura Festival was held last year. There's a nice Japanese garden there for pictures and picnic tables. :3

I've always wanted to go to Red Wing Park, because a friend of mine told me about the Japanese garden there. I just haven't been there yet. lol, especially with my friend, she wanted to do a little cosplay photoshoot there one day.

Alrighty! I wonder if anyone else in the VCS is interested? Now that we have a place, we need a time. Like NecromanticChii said, it would be nice to pick a time that fits with everyone's schedules.

What time/day works for everyone? I won't be home until the third week of April, hopefully on the 16th. It may be too early to pick a date, ne? :x

I'm free only on Tuesdays and Fridays (my days off), and anytime around or after 4pm on Saturday and Sundays (I work either 7am-3pm or 8am-4pm on the weekends). :3 Wal-Mart's evil. lol.

Also, I'm not entirely sure when (if the gathering's gonna be a Tuesday or not), but April 20th might be my next doctor's appointment (besides this coming Tuesday) for my pregnancy date-thingie. So, depending on what time on that day, I might be free before or after the appointment.

Oooh, this sounds like fun! :) Will we be cosplaying? Or just in civvies?

zekitty
03-17-2007, 01:17 AM
Costume or civvies will be fine! :3 I might show up in a kimono unless I can get my Fuu kimono finished in time... Hope to see you there! :D

Anyone else up for it or have any schedule conditions/conflicts??

NecromanticChii
03-19-2007, 04:44 PM
Right now I don't have a job, so I am basically free anytime. >.<
Except; I won't be in town during Memorial day weekend, but I don't think we would wait that long.

I like the park that was mentioned, what about planning it ofr sometime, after the roses start to bloom? I thin the rose garden, and Japanese garden would be beautiful spots for pictures.

Would anyone like to make it a picnic type of thing? I know it sounds different, but it could be fun. If so, we would need to get somewhat of a head count, closer to whatever date we set. We could even plan things to do. (Ok now I just sound odd..lol)

zekitty
03-20-2007, 12:18 AM
I'm all for making it a picnic thing! :D I've been to a cosplay picnic before, and we had lots of fun taking pictures, listening to music, and gorging on yummy Japanese snacks. :D I'm not sure when the roses will be in bloom...it was pretty cold last year when I was there, so most of them were gone. ^-^;

An idea I've had is to have a theme to the gathering. At one point, I heard about a cosplay gathering that had a Naruto theme and the participants really seemed to be having a lot of fun. Does anyone feel up for doing a themed gathering?

bigwil

Hmm..sounds interesting,so where's this red wing park place?..am I like the only guy here...lol
(Not complainin' at all)

NecromanticChii
03-21-2007, 12:42 PM
I'll drag my boyfriend along so you wont be the only guy. (If he has the day off from work..lol)

I wouldn't mind a theme. (Though I have no ideas for one...)

As for the picnic, the one you went to, Zekitty, how was it set up? Was it more of a potluck type of thing where eveyone brought one dish, or was it different? For the music idea(Which I like a lot) does anyone have a portable battery CD player(or something like a boombox.)?

We basically made the guys stop at 7-11 and grab us some stuff like a styrofoam ice box (with ice to put in it), sodas, chips, sandwiches, etc. But this time I highly recommend a sort of "potluck" thingy to avoid financial burdens on one or two people. You wouldn't necessarily have to make a dish, just make/buy something small that can feed lots of ravenous cosplay enthusiasts. :D

If we get enough people, I'll be more than happy to make my barbeque meatball marinara! Slow-cooked in a crock pot, mmmz~!!

As for a theme, I might as well throw a suggestion out there... It's terribly typical these days, but how about Death Note? I'm currently on a Death Note spree, the likes of which I've never experienced before. o.o If anyone else has any suggestions, let us know! :D

I'd come down from Richmond, but I'd need a cemented in time and date and what not to even see if I could make it. Weekends are my best friend though, just not the weekend of the Sakura festival up in DC cause you best believe I'll be going to that hahahaha! I'll even bring friends down with me if you guys can get something worked out!!!

NecromanticChii
03-22-2007, 10:30 AM
A potluck sounds good. I knnow I can't financially take everything on, sinc I am still job hunting down here..lol

Death note sounds good, I do have a outfit which might work for Misa..lol (It was a 5min planning cosplay for Ohayocon last minute..lol)

As for a date, and time all we have had suggested is sometime in April. Plus tuesday or a friday, or anything after 3-4pm sat and sunday.
We need suggestions, and no time conflicts with me right now due to the no job thing.

We could even make it a half a day thing, or whatever. I am sure it'll last a while when we have it. You figure food, cosplays, friends..so yeah.

Ok, so Location is set.
What to do, ect.. is in the planning.(anyone have a favorite game they like to play?)
Time and date needed. (Any suggestions?)

BouXKanon
03-22-2007, 10:36 AM
Oh I so wanna cosplay L...but at the same time I cut my hair a certain way to mimic a J-Rocker >_< I lovey Death Note though.

For a date I say the weekend after the Sakura Festival, cause until then I think I am booked and it's gonna be closer to summer lol so I figure the later the weekend the warmer the weather maybe? Ok so my logic is a tad skewed...but whatever.

I think a whole day thing would be fine, do some photoshoot stuff, eat, play around like retards, take some video and do some skits, theres a ton of stuff to do if you think about it! We could even go the some mall and play around hahahaa!

Ok so Im calm now. Planning I like to do, even though I am not in VA Beach I can help!

NecromanticChii
03-22-2007, 11:39 AM
I am stupid, and new to VA. What date is the festival?

bigwil
03-22-2007, 02:25 PM
5pm...sunday....maybe 3:30-4pm pre-gather for those getting there early(especially the locals that can set stuff up(finding a spot and start the weirding out of the civvis)
.....end of thought process...

SailorKagome
03-23-2007, 01:22 AM
Must we come in theme? I don't read/cosplay Death Note (yet), and I already have my cosplay planned for the year :/ if I want to get a car, I can't afford to get another one in there (6 wigs! 6! ._.).

I was gonna wear my pretty, pretty Luna dress, once I finish it.

NecromanticChii
03-23-2007, 05:53 PM
You don't have to come in "Theme" cosplay, or even cosplay. If you want to come as a normal person, or a different cosplay it is just as fine. ^_~

Heck I have a misa costume, but I have others as well. ^_^

Haha, I would never miss the chance to cosplay in public! :3 I'm definately wearing something... just wanted to make sure theme wasn't mandatory.

NecromanticChii
03-24-2007, 07:18 PM
I know the feeling. lol

So we have had only one theme suggested, it was Death Note. Do we have any more sugesstions? We could even have a vote to decide, if there arn't too meny sugesstions..lol

bigwil
03-25-2007, 01:31 AM
Well I just say free-for-all..since not all of can whip up a themed costume...unless u want a Light or L-a-thon...heh

L was one of the most cosplayed characters at Ohayocon this year.(Sorry that just reminded me about it..lol)

BouXKanon
03-26-2007, 06:14 PM
Ok sorry I haven't said a word in a while!!!!
I say we do it the weekend after the sakura festival
That would mean it would be the Saturday/Sunday - April 21/22

If thats ok with everyone, vote saturday or sunday and lets cement the date at least.
As far as times go...lets try to make it semi early, while it's still warmer and brighter out. Like start around 1-2ish. Everyone vote on that too!!!

zekitty
03-27-2007, 10:57 AM
Yeah, there were lots of Ls and Lights at Katsucon, too. Boy, was I in heaven. o.o *huge L fan*

I vote for Saturday at 1pm. :D

NecromanticChii
03-27-2007, 08:15 PM
I don't mind the day. I vote to start it around 1pm, and run it for a while.(food, games, ect...) Hopefully it'll last a while.

April 22nd is Earth Day. :D I still vote for Saturday the 21st though, though. :x

NecromanticChii
04-03-2007, 07:08 PM
I think Saturday April 21st will work, since it is the only date which seems to be getting votes.

So: Red Wing Park, Saturday April 21st, at 1pm, until we all leave.(No set ending time.) A "pot luck" picnic.(everyone brings one dish/thing...we could even mae a list of who is bringing what.)

We need game ideas, and a battery operated boox box/cd player, if anyone wants music.I will also be bringing my Digi camera, to take photos. You can come in cosplay, or your regular clothes.

How does that sound?

zekitty
04-04-2007, 09:00 AM

I don't know what the rules on Cosplay.com are. I have never set anything up here, except for things during conventions.

If it is ok to do so I would say yeah we could put it somewhere.

Does anyone have any ideas for games?
In addition is anyone have an idea of what they might be bringing so we can start the list?

So cookies, and fruit pizza.

I haven't decided what to make yet.
Fruit pizza sounds fun and interesting.^_~ (It beats Papa Johns every night...XD)

Any game ideas?
And yeah I hope there might be a bit more people attending, but a group is a group..lol

04-11-2007, 09:07 AM
Hurm... I don't know exactly what I'll be bringing. I could bring my yummy meatball stuff, but it requires that I bring bowls and forks for it, and that I lug around m crockpot. <.<; I'm not sure what I'll be bringing, but if worse comes to worse, I'll make wontons or something, hehe.

What is fruit pizza? o.o

Tanuki-San
04-11-2007, 05:29 PM
ahhhh... do i sense a modest amount of intrigue?
basically the ingredients are as follows:
instead of bread crust we use cookie crust, instead of cheese and tomatoe sauce ( and here's the part i run the risk of losing some intrigue and would be fans,) we mix together a tub of cool whip and a regular stick of cream cheese in a blender and spread it over the cookie cake. The next part is fun, so far we've whipped up a sweet cookie cream terrain and from the depths and far out reaches of our produce section come plummeting into the fray sliced and diced pieces of all the sweetest and best fruit pieces...like bananas, strawberries, kiwis, blueberries, and really whatever else anyone can imagine and suggest that would go well.
Hopefully i've done a fair job of explaining what it is made out of without disgusting anyone with that cream cheese part. trust me, it is really really really good.

Tanuki-San
04-11-2007, 08:31 PM
wellll, i don't exactly know allllll of the precise measurements, just the ingredients and the basic 'how to's" , but not to worry, i'm having mai mama help me cook it all up next week before the gathering, and i'll explain what i do know for sure..... which is basic cooking sheet.... bake a big cookie cake on the whole thing, then get a regular sized stick of cream cheese and a regular tub of cool whip, add them together in a tup-o-ware bowl and mix them together w/ an electric blender perferably ( iguess u can do it manually >.> as well....) , spread the creamy paste stuff all over the cookie crust, like a centinmeter or so thick i'm assuming, then you add on whatever topping you like, after rinsing off the fresh fruit first and foremost of course, (some people really are allergic to those stupid pesticides) you can just cut up strawberries , bananas, and kiwis, and whatever other sweet fruits you like and put them on top. finish it off with a marmalade topping of your choice and you got it...fruit pizza!!!! ^____^

bigwil
04-12-2007, 12:19 AM
Sooo.that's fruit pizza,not to appealing to meh still(just means more for everyone else)..what to bring..heh

hmm...maybe i'll do a martial arts performace

games...hmm,can't think of any at the moment cept(tag,touch football yeah,lol...red light,green light...simon says...old skool style son..heh)

zekitty
04-12-2007, 08:58 AM
As for games, I was thinking maybe some icebreakers. Not sure if you all are into that kind of stuff. ^-^; In drama we had lots of fun icebreakers, my favourite was Human Knot. Icebreakers are really fun and everyone gets to know each other. :3

NecromanticChii
04-12-2007, 10:19 AM
I have no clue what "Ice breaker" games are. (Sounds fun anyways.)

bigwil
04-12-2007, 07:01 PM
They're games that deal wit ice cubes and hammers...lol,Icebreakers as getting to know one another(real names,favorite anime,video games..etc)...through games...

zekitty
04-12-2007, 10:48 PM
Or just getting comfortable with one another, period. :3 For instance, one is called "Trust Circle" in which people stand in a circle around one person, who is in the center of the circle. The center person must lean/fall one way, and the people in the circle must gently catch him/her and shift the center person in another direction. It builds trust, especially for those shy people. :3

Any other suggestions out there? I've always wanted to see cosplay twister, but I think I'm the only person out there who believes twister doesn't have to be a sexual game. :x

NecromanticChii
04-13-2007, 10:32 AM

I can't think of many games, which would be safe for cosplays. Although I will keep trying.

And I'll be cosplaying as Matsumoto from bleach~ :D

Is anyone a vegitarian?

As for weather, it looks like it should be a decent day. (Which makes me so glad it wasn't set for this past weekend..lol)

I kind of ran into a problem with my cosplays. Some I forgot parts of them in Ohio,the little kitten found the others.(Funny the closet is always closed. Still the expensive ones weren't touched.)
That being said, I don't know what cosplay I will be wearing..if I will have one.

Does anyone have a portable boom box, or something?
If nothing else we can all visit.

Nope, I don't have a boombox... :( I've decided not to go in cosplay. I might wear a yukata or something, or maybe small random pieces of a cosplay...

I hope lots of people can make it!! It would suck to show up with no one else there. :x I probably won't be able to stay for too long, just a warning... But I do plan on bringing at least one friend with me. :3

04-18-2007, 02:06 AM
Kirby told me the date, so I'll see what I can do. I'm working till 4, but still don't know where Red Wing Park is. lol

As for cosplays and food, um, I really don't have a costume. I do have a few kimonos, but I'll probably be in work clothes, since I'll be going to the event after work. And for food, I'll see what I can bring. There's usually no food at my house, so there's really nothing for me to try whipping up. I do get paid on Thursday, so, there's a chance I can pick up some stuff and come up with something or just pick up a prepackage dish/tray from Wal-Mart.

NecromanticChii
04-18-2007, 12:32 PM
I hope the car issue gets worked out. As for anyone who is relitivly close, I might be able to pick you up, and drop you off. My boyfriend has to work, so that leaves room for 3 people. I don't have trunk space, for stuff, so I'll leave it at 3 people..lol

IM me on AIM-Mishikotoko, MSN-Amber_Shortridge@hotmail.com, or PM here. We can work something out.

I posted on my myspace for people, and I have been telling anyone I know about it.

As for Red Wing Park:

Hello all.

There was an accident a couple days ago in which, through a strange series of events, a VHS tape from the top of my closet fell on my nose. Thankfully, it wasn't broken, but yesterday afternoon, I suddenly couldn't walk in a straight line. My dizziness got progressively worse as the day wore on, and this morning yields the same results, if not a little worse. My father is taking me to the doctor because I can't drive like this, and hopefully I'll be better by this weekend so I can go. :( Just giving everyone a heads up...

I am stillgoing to bring something. Probally something Filipino, due to eating the food all the time anymore..lol

Oh, and if Frank is right, he will be able to come for a while. So that should add at least one. I hope a few people bring friends, if not that's fine. At least we will get to meet one another either way you go about it.

The ride offer still stands. Just PM me. (I will check later tonight, and a few times in the morning.)

I have a 9 games set, but it is a bit more for young children, I might buy a few badminton raquets, ect... for tomarrow though. ^_~

good news, and horrible news. The bad news is all of the pictures on my camera disk got corrupted. ( I have no clue how, but it sucks due to me having so many pictures from the past on it.)

The good news is the video I took for a few seconds survived, since it was on my internal HD, and not the memory disk.

Right now I am trying to see if I can save any of the pictures I had on my camera.

yeah, that's too bad : ( You can never really get enough cosplay pics, just the ones we do have keep me entertained, i've got one of my favorites as my BG of course.

Anyways, I was thinking since there are bound to be some other Con-Goers or just people in general around here that are like minded that we shouldn't limit ourselves to planning one gathering at a time, I'd like to have one somewhere near Richmond too, but I'll wait and see what kind of response i get, ;_; everyone's coming up here for the con anyways, plus there are a few killer parks that would be worth the trip anyways. For instance... Maymont Park has beautiful gardens that with bamboo and waterfalls and stepping stones through a pond full of giant killer errr i mean just giant goldfish that are pretty. I'd like to get together there, anyone else up for it? We could go in costume, and take more pictures, and another good thing about maymont is that they have different regions within the park that have their own themes, i've already mentioned the japanese gardens (or chinese, could be, not important and i'm not ignorant i just don't recall exactly what they're called) they also have an aquarium, lots of birds, farm, animals, bears, foxeees, and big Magnolia trees perfect for taking pictures in.

Please consider it, it's not that long of a drive you know, i drove all the way down there in less than 2 hours and it was totally worth it. And if there's anyone around Richmond reading this that's up for it , lemme know, lets pick a date...

I've seen pictures of maymont park, it's really pretty. Any gathering that isn't super-close to here, though, I'd have to miss out on, since I don't drive and I can only convince amanda to be dragged along so many times, lol. But I bet you'd all have tons of fun there ^__^

If we have one in Richmond I will be there because thats where I live, and since my schedule is all sorts of messed up right now planning in advance is good. I am so mad i had to miss the one in VA Beach last weekend, but I had no gas, no money and a friend was supposed to come into town and then I got bailed on.

Maymont park is lovely. I take pics there all the time, and a whole cosplay party would be so much fun. There was already one being planned for a little cosplay group we have around here, but no one can really plan too well, so I gave up on it for the time being. If you all want to do one here, I will be more than willing to help in any way I can.

04-24-2007, 11:40 AM
Well far away or close, all it takes for me is advanced notice.

This is an idea, maybe one which is far out, and odd, but it seems likt it could be fun.

How about all of us attending a theme park, such as King's Dominion, or Bush Gardens? In cosplay or not, but more or less just a fun thing for everyone to do together. King's Dominion has a water Park to it, as well as rides, for anyone like me who doesn't really like rollarcoasters much. (Although I have rode a few there)

We can always plan a lot of gatherings in different places at different times, I can just keep the front page updated with information for all of them. That way if someone can't make it to one, they can plan on another.

For Kyoto, we need someone to check the store hours. I know they're only open certain times, so, we should check on that sometime soon.

I guess theme parks are okay... I have the little problem of being pregnant, so I can't ride any of the rides (*really upset about that~ being a rollarcoaster lover*), so all I can do is like walk around and lose some of the "unexpected" weight I gained in the months. lol

A weekend works best for Busch Gardens/King's Dominion (Kirby, I'll cover you, if I'm paid around then). :3 But I won't be able to go to any of the parks till like after work on the weekends (which is after 4pm). So, I'll have to meet up with everyone then.

I won't cosplay either, because LOLOL still not comfortable walking around in it. Plus, it's coming up on summer time and no thanks, it's too hot to be wearing that crap. But, official photographer at your service.

That's what I thought, too, but after I bought it, I heard from a bunch of people that her stuff is really sloppy close-up, and...yeah. She was really nice about it, though, but, still. I would have preferred a mean seller and a nice costume, lol.

I have a full picture somewhere around here, but I sewed the top of the skirt to try to make it shorter (she sent me like, a mid-calf length one to replace it o_O since she lied about the measurements on the one I actually bought from her), but that could easily be ripped out. As for size...I'd have to look at my measurements, but it's somewhere around 38-28 (? maybe? I totally forgot my waist measurement...)-41...

Yeah, one of my big problems with it was the shirt was pretty small on me, bust-wise, so that would work out. I'd part with it for like $15 plus shipping, which would probably be like $5.

Ok so in one post, please put the date, time, directions(Or adress of it so people can look up the directions.) also a place within the park to meet, and anything else you feel needs to be said about the gathering at Maymont park. Please?

As for Kyoto, any suggestions?
Any other gathering suggestions?
Any day/time/location for an AMA gathering?

It really is amazing ^_^ Owlwoods & I drove 2 hours there just to get pics >_> But it was pretty crowded that day (a saturday), I'd love to go back on a weekday. You make a reall great Hitsugaya, if that's you in your avatar! I'd love to get pictures with you sometime :D And yeah, I felt really awkward wearing cosplay while we drove up there >.> Luckily I didn't get TOO many weird looks...

Yeah, thats me at Anime Boston 2007. I'm working on the wig again and waiting for my friend to mail me back my Hyourinmaru since the airport wouldn't really like me taking a sword on board. Even if its not a real blade.

I'll be able to get to Maymont Park just about any day as long as I have notification in advance. How much time would everyone need to be able to set up a meeting there? Minimum for me is two weeks.

I believe it closes at 7.

And the dinner we were planning is two hours away, here in hampton roads :P So that probably wouldn't work. Though we could probably find a nice japanese place in Richmond! I know there was one I went to last year during AMA.

I think the dinner after the meet up would be nice. (It also allows for somthing to happen even if there is unfavorable weather.)

All I can say to this one, is you need to find a place open on sunday, and make sure you don't have to have reservations to get in.(Better sure, than left with no place to eat. XP)

I can add that to the front page, as soon as it is decided.

As for Kyoto, anyone have a date in mind?

Well, apparently that restaurant is right here in Hampton. I've been here for almost three years now and I have never seen it. Then again, there isn't much I've seen while here in Virginia.
