Depending on the number (the more the better ^_^), someone should hold an event in northern cali. It seems that all the good stuff is too far to get to (Either in another state, or is in southern cali, which can be hard to get to, due to...lets say...parental obsticals... :thumbsup: ) A meet in an easy to reach place would be very nice. Maybe somewhere in the center of cali?
What do you guys think?Post replies plz!

Ehh? We have YaoiCon, Anime Overdose, ReccaCon, Japantown Anime Faire, and FanimeCon up here... and that's not even all of them. ^_^;

And there's been a few cosplayer gatherings too. I guess another one sometime soon wouldn't hurt -- there hasn't been one for a while now.

d00d!

Fanime is always so far away...Santa Clara/San Jose....4 hour drive for me!

I would love it if we had somewhere more northern, like Sac-town.

A Sacramento convention is what we need!! ( I live right next to Chico, if anyone knows where that is)

A Sacramento con is already in planning for next year. ^^ There's a thread about it somewhere in Other cons, I believe.

Hahaha yeah, I'd just search for Sacramento in the Other section. There's a thread about Sacramento cons, and a few other scifi cons up there, but one of them has mention of the con itself later in the thread. If I wasn't so busy right now I'd get it myself. ^_^;;

Michi

"Actual" NorCal? :P

There's a con being planned for Sacramento, jabuwa-ku. It was just being discussed a few posts above you.

I've had to go to the same little comic book convention, in hopes of seeing one thing anime-ish, for 5 years! Thanx for putting that link up Indie Chixor!

indie_chixor
06-30-2004, 06:13 PM

*Takes a look at the Kimi No Hanyo Anime site* Uh....I knew that...heheh. :thumbsup: Ok then I'll have more than two done, that is if I don't run out of cosplay money by then!

ARIGATO GOSAIMASU!!! Actually, I knew about those cons, but there hard for me to get to since I live in Clear Lake(Which I'm sure nobody's ever heard of. Clue: It's in Lake County). I don't have very many ways of transportation,
(Damn it all. Curse my being fourteen, and not able to drive a car...) especially with the gas prices these days (It kinda sucks up cosplay money...^_^;), plus my parents (believe it or not) have lives that (unfortuately) do not have anything to do with Anime, my Anime obssession, or driving me anywhere to meet with others like me. Sad for me...

Now we need a cosplay.com picnic thingie-ma-bobber. Maybe it could be in Santa Rosa...or even here. We have an Outrageous Waters Water Park, or we also have the Konocti Harbor Resort place...I could get prices from my mom(It's nice having connections. Sometimes we get free tickets to concerts. Lucky me...

Yes!!!!!! There are a lot of nice parks here in Santa Rosa, and some even right next to business complexes with interesting statues and fountains that could make for cool backdrops.

hell.... if anyone is interested in a trek out to Santa Rosa for a cosplay picnic I'll plan it!

Michi
07-17-2004, 03:14 AM
Haha as long as it's before August 22 I could make a picnic or something in Santa Rosa. I'm right near there. XDD

k..um.... then something lolita-e or just a manga is fine. ermm... maybe i can get my friends to go to fanime then. and so that means no ani-magic for you ether? its in october and i could find a ride/hotel for you to stay in and the best part is...its really cheap! ^^ yep!

ash_chan
07-20-2004, 01:26 PM
I could try. I have to wait and see what is going on with my family's status though(my family members keep getting injured, and need to be cared for...me included, I just got over a broken back...heh,heh...). I

Wish I knew you sooner!

I used to live in that area. I used to attend Sonoma State, but I'm currently moving to the city. Sonoma State's grassy green field is perfect for cosplay photo ops. There's several fountains and a duck pond. Really nice. I wanted to plan something with anime club like that, but since I'm the only cosplayer up against guys who dig mecha and hentai anime...the idea was moot.

ash_chan
07-20-2004, 02:05 PM
I don't care where it's held at (as long as it's not too far away, I can go as far as Sacramento, maybe a little farther...) I just want to do something! It'll give me an excuse for my mom to buy me my materials that I need to make my costume!!! Plz, someone plan something!!!
