Well, I'm getting a slightly late start on this, though I've had the idea for a while, finally putting up a thread for it ^^;

NorthEast Cosplayers Picnic in Philadelphia III!
So when's this thing?: Saturday, April 24th; around 10AM to Sundown (or whenever everybody starts to get tired and leave 8D )
Where's it gonna be?: Rose Tree Park, Media, PA; center field around gazebo and ampitheater. Located on 252 right off of Rt 1, which is also right off of 476. So it's very easy to get to by driving. Detailed directions below.
What else is up?: Hope everybody can bring a nice variety of food. No barbeque this time. Because of the outdoor ampitheater, we may have some sort of mini-masquerade. Lots of open space, so could do frisbee or other outdoor stuff, heheh.
Who's invited?: EVERYBODY! Costume or no costume! Just come out and hang out, have some fun outdoors with your fellow cosplayers/otaku in a non-convention environment for once ^__^
How the hell do I get there? (Directions)
Well, feel free to message me for specific directions from your location, but here's a general list of ways to get there.
Within the area (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=121840): Pretty much just hop on the Blue Route (I-476) to exit 5, which is the US Rt 1 interchange. Head for Rt 1 SOUTH (towards Lima). Once on there, drive about a mile up the road til the Rt 252 exit (Newtown Square, Media). Turn RIGHT off the ramp. After the Rose Tree Rd intersection (with the old house on the corner), the park will be on your RIGHT. Turn in the first driveway and park in the frontmost parking area.
From points northeast (NJ, NY): Hop on the Jersey Turnpike (I-95) til you hit the PA Turnpike (I-276). Take exit 333's LEFT LANE that goes south to I-476. Stay on 476 for a while, and follow the "Within the area" directions from there.
From points south (DE, MD): Take I-95 up into Pennsylvania. Take exit 7 onto I-476 North, then use the Within the Area directions.
I think you get the general idea of how to get there >.>;; If not, IM me or something for specific directions.
Public Transportation info coming soon.

There ya go!

Tainted-Embrace
03-27-2004, 06:48 PM
I was suppose to go, but I didn't have a chance to get there
in time.
I was sad.
Now I get to go to this one.

Oshi
03-27-2004, 07:52 PM
...Please don't spam this thread.

Anyway, there were about 25 people to the last one, and 35 to the first one. Hopefully we have as good a turnout to the first one :)

And thanks for the boost for Rose Tree, I had a good feeling about it :D

Just changed some info reguarding the date...

Misa-chan
03-27-2004, 08:55 PM
I think I can make it this time, last time the weather was too cold (plus I have no fall/winter safe costumes x.x) and my mom wouldn't let me go. -.-

May sounds good to me!

Akiko Ki
03-27-2004, 09:53 PM
I can do May but not April 24 so make it may lol

dizzylizzy
03-28-2004, 12:12 AM
just set a date oshi and i'll talk to the agents. lol i think right now all of us are up in the air about going. lol i think once a date is set, they'll know. >> but yeah, you're setting it up so make a date and stick to it. if some people can't go... too bad. ::Winks::

Ranma Saotome
03-28-2004, 02:01 AM
Well whenever it is, count me and NYO! Cosplay there. ^_^

Sorahana
03-28-2004, 10:52 AM
*sigh* May 1st is bad for me too. I'll also be away unless I can get my mom to not make me go to Girl Scout camp that weekend ;;. I REALLY wanna go dammit.......*screams at Girl Scouts for deciding to have a camporee on that weekend* And May 1st is my dad's b-day so maybe I can get out of going to camp XD;
But wow, people have problems with other dates in May? XD;
Watch me not be able to go.I'll be EXTREMELY pissed off and depressed. Oh well this is what happens when my grandma is my Girl Scout leader and I've been a Girl Scout forever *sigh* -_-

NiGHTmaren
03-28-2004, 11:12 AM
I'll probably be there, deciding who to cosplay as though. ^^; Probably Sango, from Inuyasha. If you need a ride Kayla, in case Amanda can't take us, I'll see about my mom taking us up. Everyone contributes to bringing supplies like food and paper plates and etc., right? ^_^

*~Hime no Toki~*

Kairi G
03-28-2004, 11:57 AM
May 1st is SAT day, so many HS age people wouldnt be able to come. i would suggest doing a day later in may, or even into june possibly. i still dont know tho if i would be able to come, but i guess that would depend on what weekend it is.

Xx Lulu xX
03-28-2004, 12:27 PM
Yes, as Kairi G said, May 1st is when im taking my SATs....and i really would like to go, and I'd bring cake again lol so i'll keep my eye on this thread

Zephyrs
03-28-2004, 12:28 PM
May 1st... I'm pretty sure I'm free that day - I couldn't come last year because it was one of the days of the school musical -_- And since I'm probably not going to a con this year, it'll fufill my cosplay geekdom quota for a while ^_^

Wolfwood6
03-28-2004, 12:53 PM
Anytime in May is fine, I'll probably need a ride because I am Directionally retarded and the Warwagon is Having problems again. Anyways


I AM HERE TO ANNOUNCE WOLFCON 2: ENTER THE JACUZZI

WC2 Will be sometime in late june early July, it'll be a pool/barbeque party probably on a saturday. Bring proper attire, If you guys can make cosplay swimsuits, all the better cause i'm gonna be BeachBarrett Wallace ^_^. Anyone wanna go? I know you do Oshi...LOL

Sorahana
03-28-2004, 01:12 PM
I wanna go to Wolfcon! Lol That is.........if I'm allowed but I think I'll be able to ^o^.
I took my SAT's yesterday *evil laugh* but I have to take them again in October lol XD;.
I hafta ask my mom still about skipping GS camp to go to the picnic because I.......must.......com *_* lol.

Tainted-Embrace
03-28-2004, 02:29 PM
Perhaps we can find another way to get there.
If Amanda can't take us?

NiGHTmaren
03-28-2004, 04:18 PM
Yeah, we can find a way. As for the Wolfcon thing, it sounds great. I could do a Swimsuit Belldandy for that. ^^ Been wanting to do a costume like that for a while, just needed a proper time and place for it.

*~Hime no Toki~*

Sorahana
03-28-2004, 04:25 PM
Looks like if this thing is on May 1st I can't go. My mom threw a fit at me for asking to skip camp and she said I need to stop asking her to take me to all these cosplay things. I'd go by myself dammit...........if she'd let me!! She also said it depends on my grades. She said to ask her after the report card comes ;;.

Amantalathiel
03-28-2004, 08:33 PM
NO MAY FIRST!!! no, bad bad, i kill you no?
if its not may first, tofu and soba is what I bring and napkins, lots and lots of napkins

Oshi
03-29-2004, 02:02 PM
1) PLEASE, PacMen people, do NOT spam up this thread. *notes your repeated postings*

2) Okay, I guess May 1st isn't looking very good after all. I CANNOT do late may, because the last two Saturdays of May (22 and 29), I'll be at conventions far away from here >.>;; I'm getting rejections to May 8 and 15 too (also my gf can't come then, and since she missed the last picnic... yeah, feel bad if she couldn't come). I don't want to do June either, because it'll start getting too hot for a costumed picnic... So maybe we should move it to April 24th? Are there any problems with that? Though I do like May 1st since the first picnic was May 2nd, and it'd keep the same date relation (first saturday of may)

3) Reguarding SATs if we do end up on May 1st; The picnic won't be until about 11AM-12PM... SATs end between 10-11AM, right? So it's not that big a problem.

4) I checked out Rose Tree today. Very nice, spacious park. No permit needed.
One problem though, is the picnic tables are sparse and spaced out cept for one cluster that's kinda out of the way... However I don't think there will be much grief given if we move tables around.
And the best part of this park...... There's an OUTDOORS AMPITHEATER. Perhaps we could put on a mini masquerade of sorts? No prizes or anything, just for fun :D
I'll be putting pictures up in my gallery in a little bit.

Zephyrs
03-29-2004, 04:22 PM
Actually, SATs run from about 8 to about 12-12:30.

Amantalathiel
03-29-2004, 05:10 PM
I told you stage and the sats will wipe out the people, they would have to go back home, get ready and then drive, and might take long time depending where they live

dizzylizzy
03-29-2004, 05:58 PM
just pick a date oshi. ::Grins:: i'm coming anyhow. i hold special powers over my work schedule.... O.o butl ike you, the end of may is out of the question with ama. lol and just because everyone else is whining about dates... don't pick 2nd weekend in june. the liz will be in VEGAS BABY! lmao

the first was great idea since it is close to last year's date. considering that the picnic lasts until 5 it seems.... i don't see why sat's would get in the way. it's not like this is a con and it takes you hours to get ready. >> bring the cosplay with you and change. :::reminisses to colorguard days:: this girl can change in a car and into a guard outfit. lol

oh, and i wasn't trying to be mean. ::reads last paragraph and sees how it could be taken that way:: lol that's not it! lol i'm terrible at wording things on the internet... don't throw pillows at me!

Sorahana
03-29-2004, 06:38 PM
April 24th would actually work for me ^_^. Although its my Spring Concert that day I don't have to be at the concert til 5 or so I'm all good for April 24th XD. And my mom won't complain about taking me ^^;.
And sorry about the spamming Oshi! Gomen nasai ^^;
Anyway, May 1st=bad........keep away from that date >D
And this place has an outdoor ampitheater?! Coolness!

Amantalathiel
03-29-2004, 06:53 PM
dizzy, it doesn't have many places to change, the bathrooms are really dirty( cause its a park and bugs live there and leaves blow etc.), I wouldn't want to change in them if I wore costume with longless to the ground or anylight colors yea, I think the 24 is good

Akiko Ki
03-29-2004, 08:35 PM
why that day dang it I could maybe come after training depending what time it is since thats really early in the morning.

Oshi

...You realize there are clean bathrooms next to the ampitheater which are used as changing rooms, right? :P

that's why i mentioned a car. lol plus, the bathrooms aren't that bad. i've changed in them before (last picnic lol). besides, the costume will be out in the park anyhow. ^^ there's no avoiding nature when you where them in a park. honestly, that's why i choose costumes that i've had for a while and don't mind getting a little dirty. i know myself... if i wear something nice, i'll mess it up no matter how careful i am. lol it's my luck.


so jen (ainslye) we up for a swarm of amarants? lol

Oshi
03-30-2004, 01:26 AM
plus, the bathrooms aren't that bad. i've changed in them before (last picnic lol).
Erm, this is a different park >.>;;; heheh, much less secluded.

dizzylizzy
03-30-2004, 01:59 AM
Erm, this is a different park >.>;;; heheh, much less secluded.


oooooooh. so the bathrooms would be 100 times better! jk jk jk!!!! it isn't located IN phili is it?! :::shudders::: hold on... ::goes to read the first post::

:::is back::: so... there ARE signs for the streets this time right? ::winks:: doesn't sound too terribly hard. if i could find my way to the one at the japanese house, i can find my way to this one.

as for food..... i'm bringing the usual lizzy thing..... VEGGIE AND MELON TRAYS!!! lol

ps- let's hope the locusts don't decide to come up from the ground during the picnic! lol it's the summer of the locust this year. lol or at least that's what tora's been freaking out about. lol

as for the ampitheater, do they have a listing somewhere if it's going to be in use that day? just a thought.

Ranma Saotome
03-30-2004, 02:10 AM
Ya know... I could go for a salad myself. ^_~

Oshi
03-30-2004, 01:46 PM
Lizzy: Hahah, yeah, don't worry, there are street signs and it's very easy to get to ^^;;
As seen here: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=121840 A nice map for ya.
But no, it's not IN Philly, it's in the suburbs here in Delaware County...

As for the ampitheater usage... yes, I'm going to find out if it will be in use, I gotta go back sometime to find out. Thing is, I'm not sure where to ask.


And know what's good? There's a Wawa a minute down the street, in case we run out of anything XD

Studmaster
03-30-2004, 02:10 PM
My suggestion....April 24th.

NiGHTmaren
03-30-2004, 03:23 PM
Well, any day you guys decide to have the picnic is fine with me. ^_^ And it's a plus to have the ampitheater right there on the premises. And yes, let's hope there aren't a lot of bugs. XD Though I doubt there will be, since it's not quite summer yet. I work at a bakery, so I'll see what I can bring to contribute. ^^ Lots of good stuff we make, and I can decorate a cake myself. ^.~

*~Hime no Toki~*

Sorahana
03-30-2004, 03:52 PM
Well if we do decide to do it on the 24th, then I might cancel the photoshoot I was planning for the 17th since it would be 2 cosplay things in 2 weekends, I dunno lol.
But 24th is EXTREMELY good for me XD;.
And there's a WAWA nearby?! I can dash down there for candy if I feel the urge *_*.
I should round up my crew and start planning a skit or something.......lol XD;

Oshi
03-30-2004, 04:43 PM
Oookay, I'm getting enough positive feedback on the 24th to finalize it, I believe... So yes.

April 24th, 10AM-Dusk, at Rose Tree Park, Media, PA!

finally... some a conclusive statement... XD

Also, I got photos up in my gallery... only could take a few with the battery power I had >.>

Amantalathiel
03-30-2004, 07:09 PM
oshi i love you ^_^
and I don't know if i already said this, but i'll bring soba noodles, chopsticks, forks (for the peeps who can't use chopsticks) and pan fried tofu to top it off ^_^ maybe a bit of granish

Sorahana
03-30-2004, 08:54 PM
*glomps the Oshi* Ahem! Sorry bout that Oshi ^^; but thank you so much!! *cries tears of joy* Now I must decide what to bring..........*bounces up and down*. Well maybe this means I should cancel the photoshoot on the 17th ^^;. Lemme see but then I shall be @ this! *cheers* THANK YOU! *bows and throws pocky*

Tainted-Embrace
03-30-2004, 09:05 PM
No way Amanda,
I want to go to the 17th thing.
So no canceling.
There's people who want to go to that,
and really think it rocks.


Btw- for this thing you're holding Paul.
I will 'def' come this time.
Meh and Janet vowed { if Amanda can't take us }
That us two would find a way. { Aisha too. }
I just need to decide what to wear,
so like the thing you speak about skits?
LOL I want to BE IN, but then again not.
X: ) Hark, nice planning Paul, just
Keep it urp. Lol.

Sorahana
03-30-2004, 09:28 PM
Kayla I told you you have a ride to this so be calm ^_~. And anyway if possible I'll bring 2 costumes but the one I am definetly bringing I got the fabric for the obi today. Try to guess who it could possibly be lol ^^;.
Hey Oshi you think we could maybe get a forum thingie like we did for the October picnic? Just curious ^^. And thanks again !!

sheenaringo
03-31-2004, 02:58 AM

TyJILDown
03-31-2004, 02:17 PM
I'll probably be dragging my boy with me, I missed the picnic in May last year to have my first date with him. :X So this year we will be there, costumes to be decided.

Ranma Saotome
03-31-2004, 02:31 PM
*caocks rifle* Damn right yo, we need more NYO! representation. :D

NiGHTmaren
03-31-2004, 02:40 PM
Out of curiousity, but who is everyone cosplaying as for this event? ^_^ I have a little surprise costume in store...well, more like a costume I'm going to keep secret for now. Though I'm sure I could have people guess what it is. It's a character from Yu Yu Hakusho, BTW. ^^

Anyhoo, it's great to see more people getting interest for this event, hopefully we'll have a wonderful turnout.

*~Hime no Toki~*

Sorahana
03-31-2004, 06:16 PM
<----Is being Yuna XD;. And might bring another costume along, not sure yet. Let the countdown commence.......*puts up a countdown sign* 24 days until the picnic.
And I must say that park is so beautiful *_____* Lotsa open field to run around hyper in ^^;.

Xx Lulu xX
03-31-2004, 07:38 PM
Bah, well now i need to find a ride, cuz i THOUGHT i had a ride, but the person has other shizzle to do that day....

KuroBara
03-31-2004, 09:59 PM
Ok, now that I'm in the correct thread... >_<

I had fun at the first picnic, and I'd like to make this one, but it's doubtful. I will give it my best shot though.

MonoyashaJLA
03-31-2004, 11:31 PM
WOW!!! O.O that place is beautiful!! Excellent choice Oshi...and the date is perfect!! :> I'll will be there for the 24th...strange...2 weeks before I got on the forums I randomly decided to take that weekend off hehehe ;) See yah all there..(think I'm gonna bring my bike)

KaineMaxwell
04-01-2004, 07:24 AM
I'm likely coming up there with Animelonewolf, my friend Andrea and a friend who's likely coming up to visit me that weekend. Hope that's ok and all.

Sorahana
04-01-2004, 10:37 AM
CCAmanda~~~~~
what version?

Summoner ^^;. I made part of the obi last night but it sucks xD;. I'll put pics up of it later (is in school now). Anyway I can't wait to see everybody!!
*goes back to pondering what other costume she should bring * :thumbsup:

Darkside Blues
04-01-2004, 02:35 PM
Yay! I'm going, and so are a few of my friends . . . I'll get the word out to more people! :bigtu:

04-01-2004, 04:17 PM
I'm away that weekend... oh well... here's hoping I can make picnic IV!

Amantalathiel
04-01-2004, 06:42 PM
going to bring my little friend, and being tifa, too lazy to make a new, more clothed costume

Sorahana
04-01-2004, 07:44 PM
*sigh* Well since my friend is doing Kjerstin "Yuna" Ullevaal, she wants me to be Rikku ^^;. I'll hopefully be being Psychic Fighter Rikku XD;. And I'll bring my Marlene Lumber along too ^_~.

Tainted-Embrace
04-01-2004, 08:06 PM
>> Amanda and I are planning to do Yuna and Rikku.
{ Me being Yuna summoner, and her being Rikku }
But >> Janet wants me to help her with something too.
So will see.
-Squeal.-

"Viva'Le'Summoner."

Aisha - do PAINE.
{ Lmfao }
I have no idea anymore, what's going on.
When we all figure it out - will post it.

NiGHTmaren
04-01-2004, 08:50 PM
Yeah, if all goes well I will be cosplaying Hiei for the picnic. ^^ I ordered the wig today, hopefully it gets here on time. I might bring another costume, it depends...I think one should be more than enough.

*~Hime no Toki~*

Ranma Saotome
04-01-2004, 09:16 PM
I believe that PC3 will be the best yet. ^^

Sorahana
04-02-2004, 10:16 AM
*waltzes in to Kayla* Sorry can't do Rikku ^^;. My friend is going as Seymour hopefully and I'm being his Yuna (me and him have been plotting since the picnic was annouced) ^^;. And I started the costume already XD;. It doesn't hurt to have 2 Yuna's. But if he can't go then I'll be Rikku ok?
And of course I'm also being Marlene from FFVII!
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=122233&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=1
There's the best pic of it :3
But you're right Ranma this will be the best one yet ^_~!

AngelYuki
04-03-2004, 12:01 AM
I'm going to try to make it. And maybe bring a Jibby with me.

Lady Ava
04-03-2004, 07:56 PM
I'll be wearing Ed from Full Metal Alchemist for the whole time probably. ^__^

KaineMaxwell
04-04-2004, 10:07 AM
I'll likely premire my Melvin cosplay at the picnic if I really feel like wearing slacks out there with the uniform jacket.

Sorahana
04-04-2004, 08:57 PM
*runs back in* Ok I definetly know what I'm being now!! *evil laugh* I'm being Black Mage Rikku and hopefully Summoner Yuna but if my friend isn't going to go then i'll bring my Marlene costume.
Ahem anyway 20 more days!! And I gotta think of something to bring ^^;.

mandichan
04-04-2004, 09:04 PM
I'm thinking of coming, but I need to know how long of a ride it is... Does anyone have the exact address so I can check it out on mapquest? Thanks~! Hope I can make it XD (Or if anyone knows how long it'd be from Lancaster PA~)

Oshi
04-05-2004, 12:25 PM
Try... 1700 N. Providence Rd, Media, PA 19063

Romann
04-05-2004, 12:34 PM
Yay! I'll be able to make it to this one, seeing as how I missed the last picnic. I might just wear my EGL for this or something, I dunno.

Maybe a list of who is bringing what should be made, no?

Amantalathiel
04-05-2004, 01:07 PM
yea, that would be good so we could figure out who needs to bring what (it wouldn't be fun to have 50 bags of chips, cake, and other things without plates or napkins)

Studmaster
04-06-2004, 03:09 PM
Wear the EGL Noir. ^^

I'll be wearing my Luka to this picnic for most of the day till I decide to change to streets.

NiGHTmaren
04-06-2004, 04:15 PM
I'll probably hit the Dollar Tree and get a lot of snacks. XD In fact, that's the best way to go. You'd be amazed at dollar store bargains...o.O

*~Hime no Toki~*

KaineMaxwell
04-06-2004, 06:19 PM
If need be, maybe victor and I can bring a cooler of sodas (or least sodas).

Amantalathiel
04-06-2004, 08:13 PM
wooo! dollar store! I love that place, but I guess i'll bring napkins, soba, and tofu

KaineMaxwell
04-06-2004, 08:37 PM
Wanna start compiling a list of who's gonna bring what?

Amantalathiel
04-06-2004, 08:51 PM
I don't personally, too lazy, but if you want to, yea sure

Tainted-Embrace
04-06-2004, 09:05 PM
^^ I don't know who to be.
-Yuna Summoner.
-Sakura { 2nd movie play dress - ccs. }
-Kagome { Inuyasha. }
O.O..
Lol.
-Squeal.-

Ok, here's what we got so far, I believe...if I miss anyone/anything just let me know. I'll edit this post as more people are designated for bringing certain items.

Hime no Toki: Assorted snacks (potato chips, popcorn, etc.)
KaineMaxwell: Sodas
Amantalathiel: Soba, napkins, and tofu
Oshi: Plates, bowls, utensils, cups, etc.
Tainted Embrace :Angel food cake
CCAmanda: Candy
dizzylizzy: Veggies/Melon tray
Tora: Mt. Dew
aachan: Chicken quesadillas
Noir Lumine: Pizza
Osuwari: Hot wings

Things we still need: Other snack items, cleaning wipes, lunch items, tablecloths, blankets, etc.

I'm pretty sure the area has trash cans and such for waste disposal, at least I hope they do. ^^; Otherwise we'll need someone to be in charge of that so we don't end up littering the area. Also, we probably will be in need of large blankets for sitting on the ground if someone wishes to, and tablecloths. Also I reccomend everyone have rain gear with them...you never know. -_-;

Any specific sodas you want Vic and I to get (besides Dew)? I hope someone else brings a cooler and ice. We may go to Mitsuwa pick up some Japanese drinks too (the ones with the marbles in them).

*just saw this thread* Man I've been slacking on these boards.

Ok, so after a recent ride-offer from Monoyasha, I'm there. ^_^ I think there's alot of the crew that are interested as well.

Costume wise, I dunno. Leaning towards Ryuichi because it's THE most comfy costume I have (plus I'd get to bring Kuma XD).

Offering : I can do the Dew, baby. (translation : I'll bring a couple 12 packs of Mt Dew ^_^)

I'm going to go to the picnic this year. I missed out last year because I had caught strep throat the week before and I was still recovering. But this year I'm in perfect health and am going to go!

I'm going to wear my little blue elegant lolita dress. I wasn't sure what to bring though. I was considering making chicken quesadillas, but I don't know.

04-08-2004, 12:47 PM
Too bad we can't have karaoke or something at this...........or......can we? If we provide our own songs I mean? Lol ^^;. Just a suggestion. It would also be a good "icebreaker" since some of us don't know each other XD;.

Ok, just updated the "Who Brings What" list on Pg. 6 of this thread. I say we need some Coke. XD I'm a serious Coke addict...ok, the soda kind...=_=; I drink it everyday and I don't think I've gone a day without it in a few years. ^^; Having some music with us sounds awesome! Not sure if I'm up for singing and making a potential fool of myself in front of the masses, but hey...who knows.

On the carbonated beverage issue 0_o : Heyyy if you want me to, I can grab Coke, V. Coke, and/or Dr. Pepper (sorry, I'd grab Pepsi, but I don't like it >_<). Doesn't have to be Mt. Dew... I was just thinking on the "keep Tora awake" standpoint. >_>'

I'm gonna see if I can take a half day of work...and might get there around 2 or so. I'll probaby be in my Kagura (Fruit Baskets) outfit. Last year I brought hot wings. Yeah I know bad idea cause they were messy. But if pplz want hot wings again I can bring them ^-^

Well if you start to fall asleep, can't I just sing very loudly? Lol just kidding ^^;. But yes its always good to have soda that will keep you awake ^^.

And Ranma, how dare you betray Vanilla Coke!! *pokes you with a stick* But its all good. Any kind of soda is good except.........DR.Pepper. I can't drink it for some reason ^^;. Anyway everyone get back to counting down!! *whips back out the countdown calendar* Is it me or does this month seem really short?

I just found this thread... (College has me swamped with work).
I have rehearsal that day... (of course)... so I need to be in center city Philadelphia around noon.
Last time I tried to go to a picnic, I was there two hours, and it took me the better part of two hours to get back to center city... :(
So I'd like to come but I don't know if I'll be able to make it... *sigh*

I'd think make the rain date the day after (4/25) like with the previous picnics.

Oshi
04-12-2004, 08:06 PM
Yeah, but, then things could get muddy, Kaine...

I think for now, we should sit tight and wait til we see if there's any weather malfortunes in the forcast before we look for a rain date...

As for Karaeoke, as well as sound system, yeah, if somebody can bring a karaeoke machine, that'd be great, but I can also bring my laptop and speakers just in case... I'd need a microphone to plug in though.

Sorahana
04-12-2004, 09:26 PM
I've got a microphone ^_^. Except when I plug it into my computer speakers, the only sound you hear is the microphone.......is that normal? Lol ^^;
I should start thinking of a song ^^; Watch me be the only one to sing....lol.
What candy did you people want btw?

NiGHTmaren
04-12-2004, 09:28 PM
Yeah, I'd say for a week after or something, since I doubt it would be fun to be muddy while in costume. >< Although then we'd have to work around people's schedules possibly, since May was a busy month for a lot of people interested if I remember correctly (what with cons going on and vacation and such). Aw well, let's just see what the forecast has to say come next week. And for now, keep our fingers crossed. ^_~

Hi!! I'm looking for a ride to get to this event. I live in the DC area. I'm very flexible about getting picked up anywhere that's convenient for you (as long as I can reach it by bus or metro), and I'll pay my share of the gas and provide enlightening conversation. If not, you can keep me in the trunk until we get there.

Please let me know soon if you can help! Time is running short.

I heard that the Cosplay.com picnic got rained out. Damn, doesn't that make it 0 and 2?

Studmaster

Acutally it didn't get rained out either year. It turned out sunny in the end for this year.

Lets keep the good energy for our picnic, okay? ^^

Romann
04-18-2004, 11:42 AM
Yeah, no more talk about rain...You know the old saying "when you talk too much about bad things happening..."

Kaine- Yes! I'm looking forward to it ^^

KaineMaxwell
04-18-2004, 12:17 PM
Keep the good chii flowing people! That reminds me, someone's bringing a cooler, right?

And who's bringing what for food and entertainments?
(My group's bringing least 3 soda 12-packs to start)

Rymel

Rain date... shall be May 1st. But I guess it's looking okay for now... might be a bit moist though, heh.

As for people knowing who everybody is, don't worry, we'll have a nice introduction session for everybody to announce who they are, just like the last two picnics ;D


And Ranma, it was the Candy Hearts picnic down in Texas that was rained out before.

A few new announcements from me.

1) I've stuck the thread until the picnic ends. Since this is a big event. Lets have it up here so everyone is reminded about it.

2) I've made a new thread for photoshoot requests for the Picnic. So any photoshoots you want to take place, or if you just want to make appoitments. The thread is right here. (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?p=675925#post675925)

3) Starting on Wednesday afternoon there will be a weather thread..Only to post weather updates, so we can keep those up to the minute, and everyone can be prepared.

Ranma Saotome
04-19-2004, 07:20 PM
May I say something? Is it really neccessary to organize photoshoots when there's only gonna be like 50 or so of us? I mean yeah we take that one big photo at the end and that's it, but do we really need a seperate thread for this? I'm not trying to be beligerant, but reasonable. ^^;;;

Amantalathiel
04-19-2004, 07:26 PM
yea, I see the point, you could always just go up to someone and ask, or wear a sign around your back and neck saying you will take pictures....cosplay people like signs

Tainted-Embrace
04-19-2004, 07:58 PM
{ Okay, well I posted pictures of me as Yuna - though
I don't have the Yuna hair, thats my normal blonde hair there.
From Saturday.}
XD There in my gallary.
Not sure if I should dress as that again, or do Kagome.

Studmaster
04-19-2004, 08:16 PM
Well, honestly. It's not so much organizing photoshoots, I really don't care if there are no organized ones here. I just want to know who is expecting photos, cause I'm not just taking 2 - 4 photos at this picnic, and going onto the next person. I'm going to give attention to each person or group of people that wants it, so that a good majority of the photos come out well. With this being an intimate event. It's a good place to test out certain things and skills I have picked up in the past few months.

As for the seperate threads. This thread will be jumping sooner or later, so I wanna keep all the photo stuff in one seperate place.

btw, this picnic is on the second day of the daffodil dash sale at jo-ann's fabric!!! lol

the crew down in MD will be leaving at 10am to come to the picnic. some people are meeting here from further south so it seemed like a decent time even though that's when the pinic starts. hey, it's tough to get us out of bed. ::winks:: so... we'll be picking up people in bel air, moving to DE to add another car to the caravan and the to the picnic.... so i guess we'll be there around noon. lol just look for a hoard of people like usual.... the agents are coming! look out! lol

Hey I was wondering if anyone is bringing a cooler so we can store the sodas and stuff. oh and Hime no Toki, since I'm going to be Jounouchi (Joey Wheeler) (cause I found the glove and I am hoping it will be here by Friday) I think is it only fitting that you cosplay as Mai.

Misa-chan
04-20-2004, 06:21 PM
Ok, I may not be able to go, but if I do I'll go as Meiling. <3

Hello Agents! I think there's a 50/50 chance of me coming to this Picnic. I have to discuss it with Ainslye though. She'll have to pick me up! :) I cannot wait to see everyone again!!!

Praise Amarant!!! ::agents bow::

NiGHTmaren
04-21-2004, 10:40 AM
Well right now I think I'll probably be going as Mai since the Hiei wig I ordered on April 1 still has yet to make its appearance at my front door. =_=; Can't be Hiei without the whacked-out hair...besides which I won't be wearing Mai much at all after AnimeNEXT with more costumes being constructed and such. I'll be bringing a few bags of chips and popcorn with me, and I think a few ppl did volunteer to bring coolers.

Good news everyone, upon checking the weather, there will be barely any rain at all in the area, just a few scattered/minor showers Thursday night, so everything will be nice and dry for Saturday! The high will be in the mid to upper 60's, and shall be nice and sunny! All's working out well ^___^

Thank you very much Jen! I knew I could count on you. I just have to find a way out of this mess of an apartment that I live in. *wink wink*

As for cosplay, I don't know yet. I may just wear the usual matte colors. They seem to look good on me. :)

Oh, and you KNOW how I feel about being dirty! ICK! Man, one would think I'm such a pansy, but really.... I'm not. Hell, far from it. Right, Jen?


See you guys on Saturday!

Well, I will bring my karaoke machine. However, since it's not really mine, I can't guarantee how well it'll work :thumbsup: So if anyone could bring a microphone, it might be helpful just in case.

Oshi
04-21-2004, 10:37 PM
Yeah, and,uh, reguarding Kareoke, people who wanna sing best bring their own CDs if they want a kareoke version of a song, or their song in general, cuz my list of anime music is VERY limited >.>;;

I need a ride, if I get no ride, I shall cry, I help pay gas and give you luv luv.

No but seriously I do want to go and use my camera which I can now use at 50% to take gorgeous photos. You should see what I can do now, although..... I could REALLY use a 24 mm 1.4/f lense nikkor. <3.

Seriously, I also have lot's of stuff on my computer like anime, the Karaoke versions of the first two FMA openings (one cool video one of the 2nd) and I also have Microphone san.

Also, I don't know what I can bribe people with, but I have lot's of wonderful things, I just need a ride from 8th and Market or 30th Street Station Philly and back. Either that, or something. If you don't I will cry, a lot.

Oooops I need to edit this, I forgot, while I am here, Sciguy, you need to be Amanda's number 1 fanboy, I can't take that role anymore. If not, I will challenge you for her honor! I am the fanboy of all girls who strive to be true to themselves and are the true embodiment of the idealistic spirit of cosplay (Amanda being one of them).

In fact, I think at the picnic we should give her a tribute. Amanda, you are always selfless, kind, outgoing, love your cosplay, and are always making pictures and sweet things for everyone, and I mean you can see them right in this forum. You are a jewel of cosplay. If I could bake a cake that wouldn't kill you all from the overwhelming amount of fat from icing I would.

Tainted-Embrace
04-22-2004, 08:18 AM
XD I'm thinking on going as Kagome or Yuna.
{ Maybe Sakura } Not sure yet, i'll get back to you.
XD AMANDA WILL SING, I already know that.
My aunt will bring me the cake, that she makes,
so I can bring it to you guys, Saturday.
XD It's good, I hope you like it.
Squee.

One question, I know its off topic, but would anyone like to adopted a rescued Ham Ham (hampster)? My father found 5 hampster abandoned in an apartment, one died and 2 already have homes....me being one of then, but I still have a blond male teddy ham and red female teddy to give to loving homes, they both come with cages, food and everything you need. Also they a extremely tame I have not been bitten neither anyone else that has had the pleaser of holding one...please help. I could bring them to the picnic

*ahem* anyway.... I shall be bringing Chocolate chunk brownies, 1 batch. I'll try to cut them smaller than I usually do so that they'll feed more. I hope ^^;
Is anyone wearing something EGL? Or will my daughter and I be the only ones? Just curious... And I don't think my hubby will be cosplaying, he says he'll be too hot in Link, which is probably true. He can have the task of taking photos then *evil laugh*
