View Full Version : Our first event!

Since no one else will do it. I figured I will hold it.

It will be at my Casa in Reynoldsburg. The following events will take place:

*DDR Funness
*Anime Screenings
* Oddessy Funness(a system that is older than Atari)
* Pizza and Pop Sake Tasting for those of age.
* Cosplay help and techique class (bring your latest costume or if you need help with patterns)

^_^ I am flexable about dates so please feel free to suggest. All I ask is that you bring 5-10 for the pop, pizza and assorted snacks(10 if you want Sake)

I want a date by this weekend so I can make a flyer for the Con.

This will be a great way to meet people in the area who love the same things as you!

Also remember to sign up to help with the Asian Festivle at the Franklin Conservatory! I will post stuff on this as it gets closer to the date.

03-16-2004, 05:35 PM
Sign up where and when is the Asian Fest?

I'm on break right now, so any time is good. Sounds fun.

03-16-2004, 09:10 PM
you can sign up at the website....OR you can also sign up at the conservatory itself

I figure 2 weeks after Colossal con? That weekend sound good?

If I can't make it to the con, is someone willing to pick up the flyers to distribute?

Plus do we want a website of our own?

03-16-2004, 09:16 PM
Yes, I guess we want a site.

Looks like we've been having the same ideas. Okay, if we can get hosting taken care of, it can be set up.

03-17-2004, 02:18 PM

Well....I don't live in Columbus exactly (about an hour northeast near Mt.Vernon) and I don't exactly live there all the time (I only go there for school, I live near Cleveland in the summer) but I'm still interested in the Cosplay group. I'm sure I'd be able to drive down in the summer for any events...so even though I'm not exactly in the area can I still join? I've been cosplaying for four years now and have a mom full of sewing knowledge, so hopefully I'd be of some help? I don't know if I'll be able to make it to this event, but I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at Colossalcon.

Kim- Of COURSE you can be involved! This should be more of an Ohio thing anyway.

Whenever you can help out or join in on an event, just say so!

As of hosting. I can host, but I'll have to buy a domain. We might even be able to do a community of our own. We shall see. I will have to see what domain name could work for us... ohiocosplay.com maybe?

03-17-2004, 10:27 PM
hey, I'm also not from Columbus, I'm from Findlay, which is just about an hour and a half north, and I was wondering if I could join too? I personally host "Anime Nights" (sometimes they include Family Guy, Simpsons, or other interesting animation) here in Findlay, and after May I will be hosting them more frequently. I have only cosplayed once, but I am really pleased with the way my outfit turned out, and with the help of my mom, I know a bit about sewing. Oh, and I'm going to be at Collosalcon on Saturday! Hope to see you all there!!

Well, if we're taking it that far, we need to get a proper name for ourselves and figure out what our area of coverage is going to be. From there, everything else should fall into place.

I have decided that this event will take place the First weekend of April.

Please get back to me on how many plan on coming! This will be at my house. So all I ask is that you don't scare my neighbors more than I already have. ^_^

I live in Reynoldsburg, that is on the EastSide of Columbus.

If you need a crash space, there is plenty of space here. I hope that we can have a little outdoor event if weather permits.

Tell me what snacks, drinks, food etc that you'd like to have.

Theme: We Love Shoujo
This means it will be mainly shoujo with a little mix in there just for fun. I'd like to educate those who have yet to see some of the newer and obscure shoujo anime out there. If you'd like to bring some anime. Let me know and we will work it in.

Anime Showings:
Pretty Guardian SailorMoon (live action)
Kodomo no Omocha
Love Hina (NOT SHOUJO)
Full Moon Wo Sagashite
Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne
Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch
Princess Tutu
Excel Saga(NOT SHOUJO)
Fruits Basket
Battle Athletess Victory

Video Games:
Fatal Frame
Fatal Frame II
Final Fantasy X-2
Soul Calibur II
Chrono Cross
Final Fantasy 1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
Sims Bustn Loose

Again feel free to bring Anime, Games, Manga, Video Game Systems.

All I ask is that you bring 5 dollars to pay for food and drinks
10 if you want sake, beer, etc.

You MUST be 21 to drink.

Feel free to bring friends, and spread the word on other forums. But in the end I MUST know the final number!
e-mail: marsie@distantrulers.com for directions etc

Anyone into racing? If so bring your memory cards and I can bring. Tokoyo Extreme Racer Zero, Ridge Racer Revolution and Gran Turismo 2 & 3, Chocobo Racing, and Midnight Club 1 & 2. If you want Grand Theft Auto I can bring that too (even though the last two games are American made games.)

Live survivor horror? Resident Evil 1, 2, 3, Code Veronica.

I think that's all for now, not unless you want Sega too!! ^_^
