I was thinking that maybe we should do a non-convention gathering over the summer. Those of us that are in school should be out and it'll give us time to play dress up with our fellow VA cosplayers.

I think the next gathering for the Cville folks was going to be themed. It was either for the Cville people or for VA cosplayers as a whole, not sure. Also we had an idea to do a Alice in Wonderland reenactment. Open to ideas really.

Also, giving enough heads-up would let us decide on a location where most of us could probably meet. I don't mind doing a little road trip just as long as it's not across the state.

I would really like to push for a giant VA cosplayer gathering since I may be going to school out-of-state next year.

Thoughts?



Side note: Happy New Year everybody! Maybe next year (*cough* this year) we should have a New Year's Eve party!

I think a gathering would be awesome! I'm not sure what's really a convenient place for everyone to meet. I guess C'ville has the plus of being right off of 64. Although maybe somewhere like DC would be better--there would be a wider variety of places to gather. Or Richmond, perhaps? Since it's right in the middle of the state, basically....

I'm just throwing stuff out there, cause I would love to meet some other Va cosplayers, esp. C'ville cosplayers. I don't actually know anyone from my home town who cosplays ^_^.

Also, if there is going to be a theme, it should probably be kind of open, or loose, since not everyone will have watched the same stuff etc.

We could do a picnic since it would be summer and all! I mean the blue ridge parkway/ skyline drive (or somewhere else) is beautiful and would make a great place to get pics of everyone in costume! and also can i suggest we do it on a sat that way I can come? b/c I work during the week but if we do it on a weekend I can get off at least one day and come down for a long weekend!(since i go to college in NC I live w/ my parents and work there for half the summer so Ill probaly be there when theres a gathering!)

*edit- and I was gonna mention the blue ridge picnic thing for the c-ville cosplay thing so either way i think its a good idea and i had someone e-mail me saying they would love to come and take pics if we do have gatherings, but they havnt gotten back to me on that yet.

*cough*

I'm planning to have a formal teaparty for my birthday this year, which falls in early June, so that's another opportunity for a gathering. I need an excuse to make a really good egl dress. ;)

Maybe to have two gatherings over the summer, counting my birthday party?

They don't really like the idea... >.>

A summer get together would definately be something worth looking into. Summertime's always so boring for me and this would be just the thing to spruce it up.
