Sorry for giving it only a weeks notice, but since Thanksgiving is two weeks away which means that most probably would not be able to. I thought about having a Greensboro meetup? If so then how about the Four Seasons Center....

Date: Saturday 13th
Time: 2:00pm

I thought that we could meetup at the amphitheathre area on the first level, and then go from there. What do ya'll think?

Um unfortunately I will not be able to since I do not have any of my cosplaying "gear" here. Yet I will be wearing a sign that has some humorous phrase or another on it, or perhaps "GLOMP" on it. If you want to then you can, but Im not sure what the policy is at the Four Seasons about cosplaying and wouldn't want anyone to get in trouble.

I see what you mean. I have some teeshirt transfers, maybe I'll make a shirt with something wacky on it.

Nah we weren't gonna do any cosplaying at the mall, tho it would be fun to freak out the Norms, kekekeke >=D

Just wear regular clothes. This meeting is just to get to know all the cosplayers in the area.

Also so everybody knows Im probably going to be the only mexican with a short hair cut that has a "GLOMP" sign on him in the mall tomorrow, but if there is another one.....well thats just creepy....So see all of you tomorrow....Peace out...

I love Dragon Seed (and the people that run it are so funny and nice!), they have really pretty Go boards (Im so obsessed with that game!),
I have a bento box (of course it has Hello Kitty all over it), the people in the music school at UNCG think I'm so weird b/c I bring rice and ramen in it and eat it with chopsticks!
And I will so be there tomarrow (just look for a girl with waist length brown hair!) I might make a sign or something depends on if I stop sewing early enough to make one! And am I really gonna be the only girl?!? Man I'm always the only girl!!! (sorry, I'm the only girl at my Japanese class in Raliegh at the Japan center)

I remember that place....yet everytime I go in there I feel as if I have to keep my hands in my pockets or else I might knock something over :waaaah: Anyways, hope everybody remembers that we first meet at the amphitheatre like thing on the first floor......and one more thing. Prof Farnsworth, did you go to AZ this past year...cause I saw the pictures in your gallery and you look like one of the guys who I roomed with. I was the one who was escorted by hotel security to the room.....not one of my finer moments...but yeah...

Yeah I know how you feel, and I was carrying a full-size umbrella, 2 shopping bags, and a leather coat :thumbsup: Ahh yes I remember that. I answered the room phone and the desk person said that there was someone who claimed that they were in our room. So I'm standing there like "what the hell am I supposed to do?" Problem was, I was the only one awakened by the phone call; I kinda felt guilty about having to wake DJRanmaS up to ask him about it, but oh well, I couldn't think of anything else to do. If memory serves me, it was me who opened the door and saw you there with security telling him that you were with us. That was interesting. I remember it was real early in the morning (or late depending on what time the sake ninja party was over :drink: ) I've got more pics on my website (there should be a link somewhere in my profile) but I don't think I have pictures of you guys except for Djranma.

I'm bringing my camera with me so this joyous occasion will be remembered. :cool:

Just wanted to tell everyone just how much fun I had at our little gathering this past saturday! We should all try to get together again sometime (maybe we could cosplay next time give that Carebear a run for his his money! lol) well just wanted to tell everyone how great it was meeting all of you! (or seeing some of you again for the ones I already knew)

It was great to run around like that, and I'm sorry we ran off in the arcade... I was tired of the really loud music, and didn't want to embarrass myself by playing in from of everyone >_>

I hope we can do something like this again, and maybe instead of using only our screen names, we can actually tell our real names :P

It was NC related, as is this group.

If it has to be cosplay related why does:
this (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=45686), this (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=42317), or this (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=46576) exist?

It exists because we are members of this "community" and this was a gathering of members of the CCR, ...which of course this is the CCR forum and this get together (of CCR Members) must obviously have something to do with the CCR...sooooo it has all rights to be here.


On other notes..sorry guys I couldnt make it...missed out on all the fun...

Actaully it did have something to do with Cosplay. We didnt dress up, but we did talk about cosplay, and we talked about our plans for what we are going to be cosplaying for the 2005 cons. It was a get-together of cosplaers so that makes it cosplay related.

Believe it or not,some people did -actually- cosplay at battlezone :D even though it might not've been the best place for cosplaying. And from what I remember no one directly said (in the thread) that the gathering should not be cosplay related. And perhaps the other two threads didn't belong here either -though the last one just didn't seem to take off 'tis all. I thought the point was cosplay and meeting people from North or South Carolina not just 'getting together' and 'hanging out'. I'm sure we can do that on our own,without it having to do with Carolina -insert Cosplay here- Revolution. :)

I was the one who put this meetup together and did realize that I did not directly specify if cosplay would take place or not. The reason why I didn't is because I figured that since we were in the Four Seasons Center, and not knowing the policies there regarding cosplay or things related to it. I didn't want anyone to get in trouble for cosplaying, but I never said that they didn't have to...Yet those who were there did talk about cosplaying and things related to it. I did not know that if members of CCR wanted to meetup and use this forum as a means of communication, that they had to cosplay at their meetups. Which is what you are making it sound like they have to do...

We didnt cosplay but we did talk about it, I mean I only knew a few people there so meeting others in the area that cosplay made me very happy. I dont think I personaly would have wanted to cosplay on sat. anyways it was cold! (well it was in my opion!) and I dont have any wintet-type cosplays finished. This forum is here not just for us to have cosplay gatherings where we only cosplay at places but to also have a kinda network, so if we need help or have questions we have someone to ask, our meeting this past weekend was for fun and so we could get to know others that enjoy cosplay, I mean it's fun to go to a convention and hang out with a group of people you already know and cosplay together. But if you dont already know anyone and you go to cons by yourself (or with a younger person who leaves you) then it's nice to be able to find some people you know and hang out with. (Sorry if it made anyone mad that we decided to have a CCR get-together (where we did not cosplay, but we had a glomp me sign, thumbs up to End Lifeking for that!) in G-boro, and I am being sincere about that not sarcastic.)

About having to cosplay everytime, everywhere regardless of where we are, I think, is taking it a little too seriously. In winter. Personally, if we were cosplaying, I wouldn't have, and still have gone for the sole reason to hang out. I have no warm costumes. I Blame that on AZ being in May :eeek: Everyone was welcome to come, and cosplay if you wished to.

I mean, we are all in this group to hang out with friends, and if we are not "allowed" to arrange meetings other than the "official" ones, then we would not see each other very often, and if hanging out isn't allowed, or appreciated, why does CCR exist?

I realize that most, if not all of the group used to be in the Raliegh/Durham area, but now it seems to be almost evenly split with one half near Greensboro, one half near Raliegh, and a few outliers here and there.

Oh yeah...in my other post, that first thread said nothing about cosplay. Each post simply said "battlezone". Yes people cosplayed at that lazertag event, I know, I was there, you probably don't remember me though ~_~

why were you linking a thread? there is a big difference between an online discussion and real life.

meetings are intended to involve cosplaying, its rather simple. you're welcome to hang out with friends you've met in the group, but why should you confuse other people in the process by calling it a gathering or a meeting? theres been events in the past that were relaxed on cosplaying, but have you ever cosplayed at a ccr event?

and why are you bringing up location again? what does that have to do with cosplaying or not.

this is getting a little out of hand so i'm closing it
