Hello, my name is Ely. Some of you may have seen me at AnimeBoston as Ed. I also cosplayed Hisoka at the Cosplay Picnic in the Boston commons. I'm sort of new to cosplay and I can't get enough of it. Since my next con won't be till AnimeBoston05 I was considering maybe organizing a cosplay event of my own for fun. And I came up with the idea of a Cosplaying Bowling Event.

See, I work at a bowling Alley, Boston Bowl to be exact, and a bunch of my cosplay friends like to bowl...so why not put the two together? Plus working at the bowling alley will help in setting this up.

I figure I could set up something were a group of people get together to bowl candlepin or tenpin (Or both if wanted) and also get some food. (The Pizano cafe is right there and serves reasonable pizza) This would be held on either a Friday or Saturday. Boston Bowl also has an arcade with DDR Extreme (On Joint premium, 4 songs 1 or 2 people for $1)

I think this could be a really fun thing to do, and all I need to know is if you would be interested. If I have a lot of people interested I will definately put this plan into action.

Of course, keep in mind that bowling does cost money so there would be an entry fee because I'm poor. ;-;

So please let me know if you're interested and any ideas you have including when this event could be held.

Thanks for reading this.

::EDIT::

I created a website for the event: http://nekodamaen.ms11.net/cosplaybowling.html

Hee, exactly. And it'll be all about the fun! The idea of seeing people in full costume try to bowl just sounds so much fun to me. If we do go through with this I think I might cosplay Tifa. Hehehehe.

I might be able to drag a few people along. They probably wouldn't be in costume however.

Don't worry, I'll give plenty of time for people to figure out a cosplay. It won't be for at least a couple months.

A question to the people interested...

Would it be better if this was held on a Friday or a Saturday?

Well, I've bowled in a prom dress, so I guess I can try bowling in an anime costume too ;>

I'd totally go. But I'm bad at bowling, so, yeah. XD XD XD I'd definitely go, at least to see everyone. :heart:

*nods* I agree, Saturday would probably be best.

Also, I've thought about how much bowling is and stuff...and my estimate that is that it would cost $20 per person for everyone to get bowling shoes, two games of bowling, and food.

What do you think of that?

You'll have to count me out. Renamon's feet won't fit inside bowling shoes...and her paws can't fit inside the holes in the ball.

Not to mention cosplaying in bowling shoes...that's got to look pretty funny.

"Not to mention cosplaying in bowling shoes...that's got to look pretty funny."

But that's what makes it fun. XD

And yes, a nice winter event is good...though this is more like a fall event as I'm leaning towards mid november.

BTW, I made a new thread in the more appropriate forum here on cosplay.com just you know::
