Hey all!

The Mayor of Pittsburg, Small World Park and the Recca Society have invited any cosplayers that are interested to join the Recca society for Kids Day/ Ice Cream Social on Sunday August 8th.

Anyone in costume will get in for free. Other that that, adults are $3.00 and kids are $1.75

Cosplayers will basically be "mascots" (like at six flags) there to mingle, take pics with the kids and have a good time!

There are tons of picture spots around the park too, so you don't have to be around the kids all day, you can go and do your own thing.

This is a promotional event for Recca con 2005.

Remember... if you plan on joining us, you must be in a costume that is APPROPRIATE for children to see. This is a kids event, so something that they would recognize is a good idea too. ie: pokemon, yu gi oh, teen titans, popular video game characters, ETC. Also, you will probably have kids around you, and talking to a lot so role playing as your caracter (in a friendly way!) would be fun too, and the kids would love it! However, role playing isn't required.

small world park is located at:
2551 Harbor St
Pittsburg, CA 94565

Hope to see you all there! It will be a lot of fun.

Hey Ashley, since you mentioned Teen Titans by name, both me and AJ (Beast Boy and Starfire) would be willing to attend. :)

Let us know more details and if we have time, we'll attend. :>

PS. I really hope that Teen Titans call wasn't aimed specifically at me. ;-)

no, it wasn't aimed at you, i was just listing a few popular "kids shows" that i could think of. :schitzo:

i'm glad you two are coming!

06-28-2004, 02:02 AM
This sounds like uber fun! I guess Vash would be the most kid-friendly of my costumes (that isn't ghetto-tastic). Unless someone else has a suggestion. ^,^;

vash would be good, and it's on cartoon network, so kids would recognize it!

06-30-2004, 03:48 PM
Would you happen to know what time this event starts? I'll be in San Jose for the weekend and I might be able to make it, depending on the time. Hopefully something will work out. If I could go, I'd be able to go as Kenshin and/or Wolfwood. :cool:

no, i don't know what time it starts... as soon as i find out, i'll update this thread.

06-30-2004, 07:23 PM
Hmm, I think Sanosuke or Spike would be Cartoon Network friendly for this event (Wolfwood needs repairs). I'll think about this as details are learned.

07-01-2004, 01:52 AM
ai no hoshi, is it okay if I have a ghetto cosplay of Ash from Pokemon? I have the pieces, but I have the wrong vest.

07-01-2004, 01:59 AM
something that they would recognize is a good idea.

Is it required that we cosplay from what the children recognize? jw

it's not required, but this event is for the kids, so they would be more into it if they knew the characters. ash would be great! and if you have the wrong vest, it's ok. i don't think a little kid is going to say "hey, your costume isn't accurate." :thumbsup:
and just to let everyone know, i'll be in a new harry potter costume.

ok... i said earlier that this event starts at 10:00 am

scratch that!!!


and, i'm now 100% sure that all people in costume are free! can't wait to see everyone there.

07-12-2004, 04:58 PM
ai no hoshi: So are you going to be wearing anything to this event? Or just coordinator lady? :)

07-14-2004, 11:07 PM
Any objections to a Wolfwood coming down? I mean...like...I'm hated by the believers in christ cons (AX fans know this one) and get funny looks from all other non-cosplayer people.

07-15-2004, 01:51 AM
i'll be in a new (azkaban style) harry potter costume. and (hopefully) i'll have a hagrid with me! i'm really excited about this event. :)

Oh man... I'll come as Cloud! I just need to get some directions... Was this the thing I saw an flyer for at AX? I think I picked up one of the flyers but lost it. I was getting mad about it too. So is this the same thing? I remember something about Pittsberg, and that's it.

07-19-2004, 06:10 PM
This sounds like it could be fun. I wonder if I could make it. I should tell some of my local cosplaying friends about it... o.o Eeee. I dunno what I could wear, though. I have a Dragonball Z costume but I don't have a wig for it right now. T_T It would be perfect for this, too!

ai no hoshi
07-19-2004, 10:45 PM
yes, you probably saw a flier a AX. there is an address in the first post... you could put it into mapquest.

yay! more people are coming!

also... just because it's a kids event doesn't mean anyone has to hang around the kids all day... you could go do your own thing too. there are tons of picture spots in the park.

i want to go! i'ld go as sailor jupitor but i need to redo the skirt. So i think i will go as Tomoyo. only sad thing is my Sakura is all the way in Indiana.

07-21-2004, 03:22 PM
Mascots eh? You think the kids would want to take a picture with Alfred Ashford?! Hahahaha! XD

Nah, I'm just messing with you all...I think I'll go there as Kite. For this sounds like a very cool event.

07-31-2004, 02:53 PM
one more change!!!

this event will start at 11:00, when the park opens, and will go until about 3:00 i assume.

1 week away! does everyone have their costumes done? i don't... :thumbsup:

just to let everyone know, you should all bring a blanket or something to rest on, water, and a camera for sure!

08-02-2004, 05:56 PM
That reminds me. I'm also bringing local donuts (Al's donuts if you know the place) for everybody (especially Vash).

08-02-2004, 08:09 PM
Sounds like fun! I just might go, probably as Fuu from MKR. I will have my camera with me, so if anyone wants to set up some improv photo shoots, let me know!

08-02-2004, 09:34 PM
Oh wow I almost forgot about this. >< Ummm... If I can get a ride, I'll be there with my boyfriend. I dunno what we'll wear but oh well. XD We sorta have to focus on packing and getting ready for a move soon though. T_T

08-02-2004, 10:20 PM
hrmm i wonder if they would like a Link there >_> ...ill have to see if i can go to this..^_^ maybe

08-03-2004, 03:26 AM

08-03-2004, 12:39 PM
Would it be ok if I brought some food and drinks with me? I'd like to help out to ^_^

08-03-2004, 08:09 PM

Let's just hope that we don't bring too much food or else we have to go to Son Goku mode if you know what I mean. :thumbsup:

Ok, I have a Costume Confirmation.....I'm Being James! Of Team Rocket!! MUAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH! :bigtu:

08-05-2004, 01:04 AM
Sorry. I'm not bringing Pikachu and my other Pokemonw/ me. ^_^

08-05-2004, 12:52 PM
O_O I'm on the verge on not going because my parents forgot about it and I'm still at my uncle's house. Eh, if someone is available to pick me up, just PM me. My parents have short-term memories, but I don't blame them. :smiles:

08-05-2004, 04:00 PM
I'm going to go as a ghetto powerpuff girl. Bubbles! Yea!

08-07-2004, 11:43 PM
I'm not going to the picnic. That's right. I said it. No Ash, no donuts, nothing because I'm still stuck at my uncle's duplex (3 hrs away), my uncle has to make my computer upgrade and I have to register for my Sophomore year, but if anybody's going to JTAF2, I'll c u there.

08-08-2004, 03:51 AM
Just to let you know, we're still going. :)

So far we have, Harry Potter costume and then Beast Boy, Starfire and Raven from Teen Titans.

See you all there. :)

08-08-2004, 06:22 PM
So everybody, how was the gathering? Myself, I'm influencing other people into anime and succeeded (spelling?) by 20 people so far.

08-08-2004, 06:33 PM
Just got back from the drive from the picnic and am currently polishing off the 6th bottle of water.

It was a great time. I'll post pics after taking care of the other events that came before.

08-08-2004, 07:32 PM
Whew! That was fun ^_^. I mean, I at least had fun. Got to show off James, It's all cool!

08-08-2004, 07:43 PM
Whew! That was fun ^_^. I mean, I at least had fun. Got to show off James, It's all cool!

I'm sorry that I couldn't be there. I was going to be Ash and we could've make a little quickie or group shot.

08-08-2004, 07:51 PM
I have my pictures up now, so you can all see. Hope you enjoy it ^_^

08-08-2004, 08:53 PM
