Hey all....New Jersey and New York seem to be severely lacking in the anime con department, especially since these two states are bursting with fans!! Are there any mini-cons or gatherings going on this year or next? I can't wait until AnimeNext 2005...I need something...now!

Well with AnimeNext, you just told the entire story. Shoujocon appears dead, but the head of the Shoujo Arts Society sort of came back and left the door open. BAAF should be back in NYC next year also.

I don't know how far from Philly you are but KosaiKon (http://www.kosaikon.com) has an event on October 9 at Villanova University. ^_^

Aye! more cons in New Jersey!
I am looking forward to the Anime Next update on their site to know where and when so I can start putting aside money for it!

AnimeNext already announced 2005 dates. Are they planning to change?

Not changing the dates, we're just waiting to sign contracts before announcing the venue.

Yeah, the only cons I know are AnimeNext, Shoujocon with lil hope ^^, and ppl saying that BAAF is returning. Too many cons are in Canada and CA. It's no fair. T.T I do agree NJ needs more cons. Hopefully someone hears the cry. XD

I just noticed any picnics near NJ or NY are always in country land. They're never in the city. X.x

That's Because NJ sucks... x.x We Deffinately need to make a Picnic think. But don't look at me because i can't pay for anything really. A Cosplay Picnic. x)

Heh, I just heard of that GameOnNY thing today. Will there be cosplay, though? It sounds like a video game show, and I don't wanna be the only one wearing a costume...

Ah, and that picnic's too far away for me to attend. I don't have my own car yet, and I doubt my mother would want to let me indulge in my "freakiness"...

Hopefully I will go to college in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, or maybe even Illinois or California. Those places aren't lacking as much as New Jersey is.

I think the NYO! ppl are going to organize some cosplay at GameonNY. There's going to be a picnic in Eisenhower Park, Long Island, NY next month. And for NYC photoshoots, there have been some in Central Park before. If someone is a good photographer, then do speak up and perhaps organize a gathering for NY/NJ cosplayers. (I think Central Park is a pretty neutral location depending on where you take the shots).

Yes, there will be cosplaying @ Gameonny, I'm running the FF related shoots, and Dressdrang's handling the fighting games as it seems.

what else will be happening at gameonny? any masquerades? those are always fun. i'm guessing that it's video games only?(which it doesn't matter to me because i've only cosplayed video game characters so far).

We(otaku army-nyo) will defintly be doing meet ups and stuff at Game on NY, if you check the other con's section, you can find the thread. There will be genral cosplay meet ups as well as game specific photo shoots.

And yes, it will be all v-game related.
