On Saturday, April 17 at 7PM, Otaku Unite! (http://www.otakuunite.com) will be shown at the International House as part of the Philadelphia International Film Festival. The Otaku Unite! staff is looking for cosplayers to come prior to the screening (at around 6ish) to hang out in the lobby. The local press will be there taking pictures and there will be a lot of "normal" non-Otaku people milling around.

There will also be an after-party for those over 21, featuring Japanese bands, wrestlers and assorted craziness. They would also like some cosplayers to attend this event.

If you have any questions, you can email Otaku Unite! at info@otakuunite.com or me at cassie@speakeasy.net. (While I don't have any specific information on the event, I can probably find out stuff for you....your best bet would be to email the Otaku Unite! people.)

Sounds interesting, I'll consider it. ^_^ It sounds like perfect timing for my Ayame costume from Fruits Basket.

Sounds like an interesting time to spend a Saturday night. Why the heck not? Are there any costumes or type of costumes they may expecting in particular? Perhaps I'll drag along my roommate (who I've coerced into cosplaying) as I can have a fellow over-21'er to drag around with me.

Sounds interesting, press exposure, lol. Just as long as I don't end up on the front page of the Inquirer dressed like a Moogle or something. XD

Is this a "show-up-in-your-costume" type deal, or are you trying to get a select group of people together for the press?

Cassandra

As far as I know...it's a "show up in your costume" deal. They aren't really looking for particular people or particular costumes.

And prizes? I believe everyone who comes in costume will be get something.

I forgot to 'post here' but yes, along with Misa(Aisha) Janet(Hime) And Amanda I'll be going to this too.
{ As long as Amanda drives me. }
I'll probably wear 'Sakura's 2nd movie Play dress - from Card Captor Sakura' If it's a nice day, and fair weather.
If not then Kagome, or Yuna<-- If Yuna is done by then.
Lol.
<3.

Sakura- Cherry Blossom!<3.

{ AHH, That's Rei from Sailor Moon Live Action, PGSM! }
{ I love Odango (Usagi) much. I'm up to ep 21. I have
Eps 1-21 on Vcd, rawr. <3. We should talk! }

The International house is at 37th and Chestnut, I believe..... 3701 Chestnut, in the middle of University City, near Penns Campus and thankfully near the El .... thank god for Septa ^_^;;;;

For anyone who is interested in film in general, I would suggest checking out the rest of the film festival. There are some great things being shown, and one thing that I know a number of people here might enjoy is several showings of "Moon Child," a film starring Hyde and Gackt. There is a rather impressive variety of Japanese and Asian cinema being represented this year!
