The pool gathering at Anime Boston was so much fun that I thought hey, lets do another one... CTcon style!!

What: A meetup of people dressed as swimsuit versions of their cosplay.
Where: Marriot Pool
Thursday at 8pm and
Friday (time still being discussed)

I'll be there as your Lovely Pool Princess Ashe <3

ooh, lovely idea Magpi! Not sure I could make it based on the CTcon musical preparations (esp. if its thursday) but if I'm around I'd love to come!

Well it doesn't have to be on Thursday. I just don't want to plan it around the same time as any dances. Thursdays seem to be "traditional" since theres not much going on that night. I hope you can make it either way ^^

Hmm...I was about to mention I agree Thursday makes most sense, but that's only because it is tradition. That said, as someone who chooses to cut down on costs at conventions by driving early Friday and only book a room for 2 nights, I question an event held when lots of people won't even be at the convention yet. Of course, I've seen good turnout in the past based on photos from AB, etc. so maybe it's not a problem.

idk, whatever makes most sense for all interested I'd say is when this should happen. By all means DON'T plan it around me. Outside of the staff and major volunteers I'm possibly one of the most busy people at the con!

Yeah that is very true. I'm the type who hates to miss out on one bit of a con and has to get there early realising that theres nothing to do! :D I was trying to get a "Kimono Party/dinner" together for AB last year for early birds just like me but thought of it a bit late. Hopefully next year i can put it together!

Well I guess it stands for Thursday until more discussion happens. I'd be really interested to see what types of fantasy themed costumes people could come up with for the pool. Maybe i should x-post this on the official forum.

There was one at AB?
I didn' hear about that... D:

I would love to come, but i'm only staying on friday and saterday
other than that, good luck

I would try Friday or Saturday then you'll have more people. Personally I'd love to partake in this.

The only problem with Friday/Saturday is that there are dances at 9pm. I understand that not many people will be able to come on Thursday but there isn't anything going on that night for those who will be there.

I posted this in the CTcon forums as well so i should keep things updated over here aswell but there is talk about having a second one on Friday for those who can't make it. Depending on the time, I don't know if I'll make it but I'll certainly set it up ^_^

Hey! ill be there thursday and i would be a grimmjow bathing suit version lmao so im in for whatever day.

07-11-2008, 01:06 PM
I don't plan on going until Friday night, otherwise I think it is a good idea. Good luck! :)

07-13-2008, 11:28 AM
Sure, I'll join ^_^ I'll be going as Etoh from Record of Lodoss Wars. I'll be setting stuff up for a while since I'm with volunteers, but I'll be happy to join.

I would like to be there. ;_; However, I don't know when I'll be arriving down in Connecticut, and even so I won't be in Hartford until Friday. Best of luck at the meet!! Hopefully we can find some time to hit up the pool together.

I would love to come over next weekend but unfortunately both of us are going to a Cape for a romantic 1 year anniversary get-away! It was kind of last minute planning on our part since so much is going on these next few weeks too!

I'll see you eventually though <3
