Just wondering but would anyone, other than myself, like to hit Busch Gardens in cosplay? I think it would be fun to go in a group with everyone in costumes. Thoughts?

I'd consider it. Though, it would be tough considering most of our cosplays require wigs or props that would most likely fly off on the first roller coaster. Wheres the fun in Busch Gardens with no roller coasters? Besides... Hitsugaya is too short to get on the rides >.>

I'm all for Busch Gardens... maybe its doable in my Ulquiorra costume.

SaChan

That would be so much fun! I'd love to go, maybe in a simpler costume of course. I don't want my wig flying off during a roller coaster. o_o But I would definitely be interested.

NecromanticChii

I am interested, but I would be leaving the wigs, and props at home.

zekitty
06-17-2007, 09:49 PM
I'm totally up for it! Not sure what I'd wear, because I hate-hate-hate being sweaty, and most of my cosplays are pretty...warm. ^-^;

zekitty
06-19-2007, 08:34 PM
So, uhh... Any plans to make this happen? XD

the LAN warrior
06-21-2007, 05:07 PM
During the week would be less crowded. Say like a Tuesday or Wednesday?

twinkie
06-22-2007, 01:47 PM
I'd love to go but..


i have no ride. XD

zekitty
06-23-2007, 07:24 AM
I may be able to go either Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

I'd love to go but..


i have no ride. XD

Where do you live, Twinkie? I'm bringing my friend Chibi along, we may be able to pick you up! :3

EDIT: Oh, Richmond. Duhr. *just checked the list* I'll ask Chibi if he wants to pick you up. ^-^ Hopefully I can go at all. <.<;

NecromanticChii
06-24-2007, 04:02 PM
I am out, during the week. mon-friday job. XD

Unless, it is the week of July 4th. I am off work that week. ^_^

I.N.K.
06-24-2007, 08:48 PM
K: I'm pretty sure Itachi and I would go. Neji doesn't do the whole "Theme Park" thing. And if we wen't I'd have to bring along my parents because they "love me and want to make sure I'm not going off to meet people I don't know"...which is basically what I'm doing...

If you tell me a scedualded date and time, I can try to convince my parents before that time...unless I'm with my dad...then it will never happen...

NecromanticChii
06-27-2007, 12:28 PM
We need a date.
Any suggestions? All we have so far is a Tuesday or Wednesday. So lets get some dates rolling. ^_~

the LAN warrior
06-27-2007, 01:58 PM
July 3rd?

zekitty
06-29-2007, 04:20 PM
The only times I'm not working next week are July 4-6... Wednesday through Friday.

Vampey
07-01-2007, 01:05 AM
I'd like to go :3 I have a fun pass I can use ^^
But what cosplay? I only have two and both have.. rather.. short skirts..
I'll put together a new Misa xD Busch Gardens proof Misa xD

This is rather short notice though o.o;;

*flails*
Not to mention I have no money for food or anything T-T

HitsugayaTaicho

If you're looking for a non-crowded weekday, then Wednesday... the 4th of July, is not the day. Maybe another week out of the holiday week so it calms back down.

Wednesday the 11th then?

It's a shame my boyfriend won't be able to go.. But I might be able to pull it off if Kitty helps :3

zekitty
07-01-2007, 10:07 PM
I get my schedule on every Thursday. I won't know my schedule for next week until this Thursday...

The 13-15 and 20-22 I'm unavailable...

It's a shame my boyfriend won't be able to go.. But I might be able to pull it off if Kitty helps :3

Of course I can help you out. If I can go. <.<;;

Naturally July 20th-22nd is not an option.

NecromanticChii
07-02-2007, 07:09 AM
I am heading there this afternoon. XD
I talked Frank out of wednesday, due to everyone being off work that day.(Well 99% of people)

HitsugayaTaicho
07-02-2007, 07:25 AM
Wednesday the 11th then?

I can try to swing Wednesday the 11th. Though, its a little tough since schedules are made on short notice. I'll know more as time progresses.

I.N.K.
07-02-2007, 04:04 PM
K: Think we can try to go sometime 16-20th or something? I have this whole thing where I go to my dads house for 2 weeks then my moms, and my dad won't take me to do something like this...

Vampey
07-02-2007, 04:37 PM
Some of us are going to Otakon... o.O
I don't think we can afford really spending anything before then... ^^;

Atleast I can't >_>

the LAN warrior
07-02-2007, 06:39 PM
we could push it back to after Otakon.

zekitty
07-02-2007, 09:45 PM
That would be much appreciated. o.o

twinkie
07-05-2007, 01:37 PM
Thats a good idea! after otakon!

zekitty
07-24-2007, 04:09 PM
Alrighty guys! Otakon's over, and I definitely have post-con blues so I'm definitely ready to hit up Busch Gardens with fellow otaku!

Who's up for it now?

SaChan
07-24-2007, 11:58 PM
I am feeling the post-con blues, and I am still totally up for a crazy Busch Gardens cosplay gathering! ^_^

zekitty
07-25-2007, 08:07 AM
Yay! That's one, who else is up for it??

*tries to rez the thread*

Kikyana

This sounds like a cool idea o:
My King's Dominion gathering isn't getting any kind of response, so maybe I'll just jump in on this o:

You're more than welcome, the more the merrier! ^-^ I would have joined your King's Dominion trip, but it's a bit too far from me. ^-^;

Anymore takers?

Vampey
07-25-2007, 12:10 PM
Meeeeeeeeee!!! :3
I should work on my avatar photo...

NecromanticChii
07-25-2007, 07:12 PM
When the date, and everything is decided I can add it to the first post in my Gatherings thread.

SaChan
07-25-2007, 09:17 PM
Looks like we have a few more takers! Anyone have any date/time suggestions?

zekitty
07-26-2007, 07:03 AM
Well, I get my work schedule for next week today. This week, I'm working 4-10pm from today until Saturday. I'm sure I'll get more days off next week. ^-^

Does anyone else have any preferences?

Kikyana

Awww x3 That's too unfortunate!

As for my avilability, if anyone cares, it varies since I work at KD xD; But I can pretty much request any day off I want.

the LAN warrior
07-26-2007, 11:46 AM
Sure, I'm game. I'd still need to make a costume that would be appropriate for wear at a family park, something tells me that they wouldn’t like my militaristic ones, and i sure as hell dont want to wear full black leather. So I’ll need at least two days notice to give me enough time to make one.

zekitty
07-26-2007, 09:26 PM
I'm off Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. :D I can go any of those days.

Btw, I plan on cosplaying "Misa hits the amusement parks!" XD Basically just the cliche Misa adapted for summer.

the LAN warrior
07-26-2007, 11:11 PM
Alrighty, so i think i have something to wear for the trip, a Heartless Leon.

Noo! No KH2 spoilers!! *hides under a blanket* I'm only halfway through the game. ;-;

Well, I checked the weather and for the next ten days, there's nothing but isolated thunderstorms. <.<; Thursday is supposed to be partly cloudy. The forecast will change between now and Thursday, but I fancy it's a good day to go. Beat the weekend crowd, ne?

Any oppositions to Thursday? The park opens at 10am and closes at 9pm that day.

NecromanticChii
07-27-2007, 07:36 AM
Thursday August 2nd?

07-27-2007, 03:26 PM
So where is everyone going to meet one another, when they open?

zekitty
07-27-2007, 10:08 PM
Big Ben, the big clock? It's definitely a landmark you can't miss. :3

Should we get there when the park opens, or sometime during the day?

Nekko
07-29-2007, 02:10 PM
hmmm... somthing themeparkish.

How about Misa-and-L-drag-Light-to-the-themepark?

Heh. That would be fun to pull off seriousness the whole time.

the LAN warrior
07-29-2007, 02:13 PM
So can we get a head count on this little gathering?

I'm going, so thats: 1

zekitty
07-29-2007, 06:31 PM
So far, we have:

Meg33
zekitty
Vampey
NecromanticChii
the LAN warrior
Nekko
Kikyana?

That's seven people. Kikyana didn't say for sure if she was going or not...

So are we ready to make this happen? :D

the LAN warrior
07-29-2007, 08:12 PM
So the Rendezvous point is big ben. (big clock tower)

On august 2nd (this thursday)
In the morning
At what time?

zekitty
07-29-2007, 09:07 PM
The park opens at 10am, so for now let's say 10-10:30am, unless anyone has objections. I'm just trying to beat most of the crowds so I can ride the hell out of Griffyn, or however you spell it...

Anyone who wants my cell # can PM me, in case you can't find me or you get there a little late. I'd prefer if people RSVP on this thread or by PMing me or the LAN Warrior when it gets closer to the trip, just so we know who to expect...

the LAN warrior
07-29-2007, 09:50 PM
ya know its at amusement parks that i am SSSOOOO glad i spent all that time studying physics. MAXIMIZE THE G-FORCES!

NecromanticChii
07-30-2007, 10:52 AM
No, I can't make it, I have to work thursday. I was just putting the information in the gathering thread I have going, incase anyone went into it, so they would know. XD

Sorry about the confusion. XD
I am free to go on weekends, but I am not a fan of rollercoasters. lol

Nekko
07-30-2007, 01:47 PM
2 now

I ride rollercoasters but watch me run to stay away from the Griffin.

I would be happy to get a free ticket, I don't get paid till friday... ^_^

zekitty
07-30-2007, 02:09 PM
Oookay, how does Friday sound then? I'm off that day, but I'm working Saturday an am unavailable Sunday because of Tax-free Weekend. :) Back-to-school shopping for Japan. :D wewt wewt.

fatalinjection
07-30-2007, 04:20 PM
I've love to go but no ride and no money T^T Have fun, everyone~!

zekitty
07-31-2007, 08:56 AM
Aww, that sucks... We'll miss you, though! :3

Are there any objections to Friday, then? Has anyone read the thread yet? XD I have a couple doctor/dentist appointments to make, and I need to know which day we're going. ^-^;

Nekko
07-31-2007, 07:57 PM
I had to beg for thursday off. I won't get friday off.

My bosses are from Iraq. They don't think people who work for them should have lives outside of work.

the LAN warrior
07-31-2007, 08:02 PM
I've got Thursday and Friday off so i'm game either way. Personally i think Thursday would be better, fewer people, shorter lines.

zekitty
07-31-2007, 08:14 PM
I just sent out another PM to everyone. Everything's fixed and the trip is Thursday. :3 Same time, same place. 10-10:30am at Big Ben.

So what is everyone is wearing to Busch Gardens?

Vampey
08-01-2007, 12:10 AM
Well... Kitty insists on me going as Misa as well... so Misa it is. :3
I wear jeans all year around though. Don't expect to see me in shorts!

I just gotta try on some shirts :3 Otherwise I'm set x3

Man I can't wait to see you all there!

SaChan
08-01-2007, 12:37 AM
Ack, unfortunately, I cannot make it on Thursday. I'm returning home that day so I won't have a way to get out there on time. Hope everyone has fun! ^^

zekitty
08-01-2007, 07:03 AM
Aww, we'll miss you, Meg33!

I'm wearing Misa-hits-the-amusement-parks. A very watered-down summer version. A lot more was initially intended to go with the costume, but I got sick and couldn't drive anywhere. (Meds are yummy. 8D) But oh well, it's the thought that counts!

the LAN warrior
08-01-2007, 09:02 AM
As i said earler i was thinking about the heartless Leon, but then i remembered, black shirt+long pants+leather= High Heat. So I'll just make something up tonight, maybe something from Full Metal Panic or just a summer squall.

Kikyana
08-01-2007, 09:11 AM
Awwww I won't be able to make it Thursday ):!
I hope you guys all have fun though! Take lots of pictures!

zekitty
08-01-2007, 09:21 AM
We'll miss you, Kikyana! Light and Misa will be without an L! ;-;

As i said earler i was thinking about the heartless Leon, but then i remembered, black shirt+long pants+leather= High Heat. So I'll just make something up tonight, maybe something from Full Metal Panic or just a summer squall.

I vote for the summer Squall! :D I'm a huge Squall fan. <.<...

the LAN warrior
08-01-2007, 09:27 AM
Alrighty, lets think of what Squalls main costume points are:
Short Leather Jacket with fur
Necklace
V-neck white shirt
Crossed ass belts
Three Belts on leg
Biker Boots

Now, the leather jacket is not an option (heat), so that would leave very little above the waist. Therefore I would need to take aspects from the KH model as well to make the costume more recognizable as Squall.

Ok, i think i can whip something up by thursday

Vampey
08-01-2007, 03:25 PM
I'd say just do the white shirt, some cheaply designed belts, and pants and boots that are comfortable.
You don't really wanna go too far with the costume and risk anything getting damaged.

I don't wanna go with layers [it's gonna be 97 degrees but with heat index... eeh..] but I might just have to. It won't be too bad. I'll cut it up a lot :3

Can't wait to see ya'll there!

Nekko
08-01-2007, 03:33 PM
I have my new Lght cosplay. I even cut my hair shorter by two inches...

Now if I can keep my tie neat to wear tomorrow, I can't figure out how to tie them so my mom does it.

Woul any of yall be mad if Light has boobs? I really don't want to bind.

the LAN warrior
08-01-2007, 03:36 PM
Nekko, if you need redo your tie, just ask. I have to wear them for work everyday.

Ok, i get off work in about half an hour, so when i get home i'l put together something to wear.

Vampey
08-01-2007, 06:12 PM
Update: Well there's two things going on here.
1] I might not be able to go because of my brother since I can't leave him home alone.
2] If somehow by miracle he decides to go, he's gonna drag us back [because somehow EVERYTIME we go he gets sick or complains about something -_-] but if he does go, we'd have our L with short hair. *shrug*

So right now, I'm on limbo til my brother makes up his mind -_-

Thanks lil brother from screwing things up at the last second.

Nekko
08-01-2007, 07:21 PM
I hope he can go... If he complains ill just write him in my Deathnote. ^_^

I scared my boyfriend and coworkers... They said I was a smexy looking guy, Robert was not pleased to hear that comment.

JIK I won't be able to get that ticket I am bringing some money. It costs 60 dollars right?

I have never been to Bush Gardens before. My Mom both Aunts and a sister have a season pass... Ughh I hate being poor and broke...

zekitty
08-01-2007, 10:46 PM
Bad news: If Vampey can't go, I can't go, either. I SUCK at driving alone on the highway. I've only done it once -- never again.

Let's all give Vampey's little brother a big round of applause. This will be my only chance to go to Busch Gardens before I leave for Japan at the end of this month. ;-;

Nekko
08-02-2007, 05:49 AM
I Will Pick You Up!

Without a Misa I am just a girl with a red tie...

Or as my sister blatantly put it. *you look like a dyke*

Vampey
08-02-2007, 06:49 AM
I Will Pick You Up!

You're a bit far off to pick her up. lol. You'll pass Busch Gardens, drive another hour before you reach us.

We're working on it. Keep ya updated.

Nekko
08-02-2007, 06:56 AM
Bleh.

Can't you just chuck your brother into your trunk or somthing?

Im just kidding, or am I? *shifty eyes*

I got a couple hours to kill...

Vampey
08-02-2007, 07:03 AM
LOL

Kitty and I were just talking about the same thing xD

But he barricaded the door D:

I just messaged my Father.. gods I hope I don't get in trouble.

zekitty
08-02-2007, 07:05 AM
We're really trying everything we can to get that little ungrateful maggot out of his room. It's postively INSANE that our fun might be spoiled by a 14-year old! >.<

I should probably text LAN Warrior about this...

Vampey
08-02-2007, 07:13 AM
Yeah we might not be going -_-
Neither of my parent's have responded and my emo 14-year-old brother is still locked up in his room.

Gods talk about ruining EVERYTHING.

Nekko
08-02-2007, 07:13 AM
He is 14! He's old enough to babysit himself!

Tell him that if he makes you miss Bush Gardens you will make sure he misses somthing he wants to do. Or that you will never drive him anywhere ever again.

I use the driving thing on my sister before she got her car.

Vampey
08-02-2007, 07:18 AM
Yeah I tried that already to no avail. This bastard is just out to ruin my day I swear.

I just stood at his door and said "If you make me miss this day you're going to regret it for the rest of your life."

Edit: Yeah sorry guys looks like we aren't gonna make it. I'm SO SORRY!
Maybe another time... v-v

EditEdit: So in the end, we did make it! It took us a while but we finally did. Spending time with LAN and Nekko was absolutely AWESOME! :3 Hopefully I didn't scare ya'll off.

Nekko I miss yew!
LAN... didn't get to say goodbye.. T-T I know you were tired, I understand.. but I really had to potty ^^;

zekitty
08-02-2007, 10:33 PM
Ehrm, okay. Something funky is going on with C.com's database. It keeps giving me an error every time I try to view the 6th page, sooOoOoOO, I'm posting this blindly. <.<

Thanks to Nekko and LAN for coming! I had a great time, and I know Vampey and Joey did, too. ^-^ We should have some sort of Christmas or New Year's gathering, if possible. I won't be back in the country until 12/21. <.<;

Hearts, stars, and rainbows to you all~! <3

Vampey
08-02-2007, 11:49 PM
Yeah C.com is being funky. I suggest just using the "Post Reply" button and reading things from the bottom.

Hopefully someone else figures that out before going "Omg how do I post?"

Oh and if you have AIM and wanna contact me, let me know so I can add you to my allowed list :3
