Anyone up for a cosplay photoshoot on Long Island??

Right now I'm looking into 3 different places for a photoshoot, and with the weather getting nicer, we might just be able to have a lot of fun.

Wondering if anyone else from the area is interested... cuz I don't wanna just set things up and have noone come...

Well it's a lot easier for me to get to LI then it is to Roch-wherever the hell the other NY photoshoot is....just along there's a train or something I can take to get there incase I cant mooch a ride off of Cyn.

I've got it narrowed down to three places that'll let us have it....

Valley Stream State Park
Hempstead Lake State Park
Eisenhower Park...

I'm really trying for Eisenhower park, because its easy to get to mass transit wise.... I'm hoping to do this possibly at the end of June after finals are over for everone in college and grade school ^_^

nyah! ^_^ me and Biku were talking about doing something like this, this summer, great idea! we thought either eisenhower park or even Central Park, but im sure she along with me would like to go! a whole big anime photoshoot picnic.

Eisenhower park is a good idea i think (nods) but end of june is no good for me... anime next is the weekend of the 18th and then i have graduation on the 27th :( maybe july would be a good time too... though.. yerg... crowded parks... WAHHHHHHHH!

YEAH YEAH! Let's have one at Eisenhower Park!!! I live pretty close to it and it would be grand to do this!

NeikoRae

Whee! I'd be really into that, LI is pretty close.. also, I'm not sure if she's noticed this thread, but I know Jubei Chan lives on LI too and she'd probably be into it if she knew. ^_^ What kind of a photoshoot?

Basically anything... its a cosplay photoshoot... so it doesn't necessarily mean anime/jpop... you can do egl, or whatever floats your boat ^_^

I'll check more into eisenhower park ^_^ Might have to actually reserve a section of the park to use... so I'll make sure on that first ^_^

I'm aiming for either June 26, or July 3.... so if anyone has any complains or suggestions of a date... speak now... cuz when I reserve the park space... that'll be it ^_^

July 3rd is right next to July 4th, I would steer clear of it. Independence Day festivities may be going on.

(But, my chances of going are slim, it seems I can never make the picnics, grr! Um, so take it or leave it)

Plz just make a perminate date (s) for the shoot and tell us which field it is in.

Just as a side story. I used to play in that park when I was a WEE toodler, I still go there to s8e & stuff. Its a pretty big park, duck for the golfers!


Heck I'll bring all my costumes! :jjacks: If its held! :bigtu:

You can tell them apart, they have signs, or you could just go to the rangers office which is easy to find.

I must warn you all though, DON"T speed in the park, believe me, my family has got a few tickets due to that park. I park is comprised to 2 roads throught it for easy access, they are narrow but have both 2 lanes. They also have an indoor pool, field with nothing but grass for kites, pininc areas of all sorts, duck ponds, 911 memorials, firemen memorials, veteran memorials and a BIG golfing area along with practice area.

Hey I live by it too, not lie I'm a tour giude or anything LOL! ^^;

RoboGundam6
05-13-2004, 11:25 AM
I dunno if I can make it, but I'll keep my opitons open! I would be AWSOME seeing you all again!

Biku-Chan you are so cool! Thanks for the IM! *yes I'm on AIM ocaccionally NYO!* I was very cool meeting you!

So to be back on topic, WHAT IS the perminante date for the photo shoot? I would REALLY like to know.

AnimeAngelBlue

Okay... I was able to get a date set with Eisenhower park...

If all goes well with the weather it will be June 27 at Eisenhower Park, in East Meadow.... I've yet to get a definate field number ^_^ They will get back to me on that ^_^

Directions by mass transit ((mostly from Penn Station))::
1. From NYC and points West: Take the long island railroad from penn station to the hempstead station. At hempstead cross the street to the bus station, take the N70/N71/N72 ((Any one of these 3 busses will do)) to Eisenhower Park. ((I don't know the stop off hand, but if you ask the driver, he'll tell you when.)) Also the bus runs down the block where the park is, you're just gonna have to walk abouts once you hit the park ^_^ It's also about 5 minutes or so once you leave the bus station. ^_^

2. For points East: There's one or two ways to do this if you don't drive. You can take the train to Jamaica and switch to the Hempstead line. ((Since Hempstead is the last stop)) Or get to the Sunrise Mall and take the N70/N71/N72 bus that is headed for Hempstead and get off at Eisenhower Park. ^_^ Sorry bout that... no easy way to get there from this way.


Directions by Car::
Local Directions: Once your on the Meadowbrook parkway, take it to the RT-24 E (Hempstead Turnpike) exit - exit number M5- toward EAST MEADOW/FARMINGDALE. After exiting the parkway heading eastbound. The park will be on your left after the first traffic light. Continue down 2 more lights to the entrance on your left. ((I will double check to make sure its 2 lights I believe it is))


I will have other directions if anyone asks for them ^_^ I have no problem helping out with directions, my dad drives a bus, and will be more than happy to help people out coming from farther areas ^_^ So pm me if you need something more specific. Also I will try to have general directions from westbound points. ^_^

Around 12 would be good for a picnic maybe the meet up time could be 11:30 or thru 1:30...but I don't know....just from past experances with picnics

Same thing I stated on the NYP! board, ur friends graduate on a Sunday?

BTW put my vote in for 1.

Oooh. :D Really glad to hear about this. I should be able to attend. Yay~!

Mr. Czernobog
06-06-2004, 01:40 PM
Nuts, if it's at 1, I guess my sister and I won't be able to go. That's when her graduation starts.

Again with the graduation?!?! It's a Sunday people, i doubt ur siblings and friends graduate on sundays!

NeikoRae
06-07-2004, 05:44 PM
YES THE GRADUATIONS ARE ON SUNDAY!!! why do you doubt that? thats when my graduation is anyway and the schools had it on sunday every year since my brother graduated at least.... each school is different

RoboGundam6
06-08-2004, 10:05 AM

Well, look on the bright side....there are bunnies in the park! and golfers so becareful!

That's so odd. Here in real NY, everyone graduates on a Saturday.

NeikoRae
06-09-2004, 03:46 PM
its not really the dependant on real or not real ny whatever that means.. but the reason some are on sunday rather than saturday is because most are on saturday and due to family conflicts they have to make it vary so people can attend one anothers graduations *shrugs* we have prom on an odd day but thats because regents end on a funny note...

what'd you mean by real ny?

TheAnarCHris
06-10-2004, 01:21 AM
the nyc area,i.e.Brooklyn, Staten Island, queens, the Bronx and Manhattan.

Some Graduations are even done on weekdays, atleast my HS graduation was...

ANYWAYS! Back on track!

I'm in Valley Stream but I work in Mineola like 10 minutes from Eisenhower park. I'm gonna try to make it, and if I do I'll be driving my boyfriend with me as well. It all depends though since I have AnimeExpo that week plus extra hours at work so I have to see if I will have the time on Sunday while running around getting things done that week...

I'll see as time draws nearer, probably be a last minute decision seeing how things flow.

HS graduations aside, now that anime next is over do we have a date/time for this shoot? also for those of us heading in from pen we should meet up and go together.

Woo! Finally got things set up ^_^

We will be at lot 6 for the picnic... it is NOT a reserved picnic area so no alcoholic beverages allowed please. The picnic should start around 11:30 ^_^ and run til around 4 ^_^

You can take the N35 from the Hempstead terminal towards Westbury ((for those of you that aren't driving)) and get off at Stewart Avenue in front of the park entrance.

There will be a short cosplay compeition ^_^ and lots of fun games and some pretty nifty prize type stuffs ^_^

There aren't a lot of tables, but there are some, so please bring blankets with you and don't forget your lunch ^_^

See you all there ^_^
