*MORE TO COME!!!*




Hey folks! Anime North is over and done with, so now it's time to plan for the event I'm looking forward to - the Centre Island Picnic! Want to see what the first one looked like? Check out the photos! (http://www.lelola.net/misc/cosplaypicnic/2004/index.shtml)


For those of you who remember last year, it will be remarkably similar save for one major change. We will NOT be running around the island as we did. Rather, we'll park on that wonderful large grassy knoll we attacked that's across from Centreville. From there, people can socialize, run off to the nearby gardens and fountains for photos, and snag a few Centreville rides. People who are late can find us easily, and there's less worry about travel for those who can't wear appropriate footwear.

Now, for the basic information! (Yay, cut and paste from last year!)
my text is pasted on yay1



The Second Annual Centre Island Cosplay Picnic!



When: JULY 2ND!
RAINDATE:July 30th

Where:
Centre Island and Wardís Island (theyíre connected). This includes the gardens, beaches, and Centreville. We can walk through Centreville without buying a pass, for those worried about money. ^^ And there is a petting zoo, filled with cute animals! And DUCKS!.


We are meeting at the docks, BEFORE you buy a ticket and enter to get on the ferry. We are meeting in front of the building that says "Ferry Docks". That's at the Toronto Ferry Docks at Bay Street and Queens Quay. Before the docks there are a few grassy knolls and trees, as well as a ticket booth that's normally not in use. Cosplayers are bright and colorful. If you're on time, it'll be hard to miss us.


Cost:
Ferry Cost is $3.50 for Students under 19 with a student card- and 6.00 for Adults. Children are $2.50. That includes the ride there and back.


Additional Stuff:

Cosplay is NOT a requirement! Everyone is welcome!

Extras:
There are snack bars throughout the island, fast food places within Centreville, and other areas in which you can spend money. HOWEVER- you can bring your own food and drinks, and not expect to pay anything other than the ferry fee.

Centreville passes are:

Individual ride pass:
Over 4' tall: $23.00
Children 4' and under: $16.50
Though you donít have to buy a pass to explore Centreville itself.
The Ferry will run from 8:00 am to 11:45 pm Thursday. The Picnic is expected to run from 11 am to 6:30 - 7 pm. Centreville closes at 5 pm.

Food:
Although this is being labelled as a picnic, itís not a potluck. Bringing enough food for even 15 to 20 people can be a hassle, and tastes can be an issue as well. We're looking at 50+ attendees, easily. Not to mention the fact no one wants to lug their food all the way to and around the island, and then lug their empty containers around with them for the rest of the day. Bring food and drinks for yourself. ^^

HOWEVER:

Blankets, beach balls, and random, shareable foodstuffs are always welcome. If thereís something you make that you want to share with the rest of us- by ALL means, do so! Just be aware that bringing food is not a requirement. And if you have something you think will add to the fun- bring it!

Safety:
Bring SUNSCREEN. No one likes being burnt, and you will. Try not to wear a costume thatís incredibly delicate, or has too many layers. Especially if itís all synthetic fibers. Itís easy to overheat. As well, being on an island means a COOL breeze and a significant drop in temperature at night. If youíre planning a bikini costume - bring a jacket.
If youíve lived under a rock all your life, do NOT plan on swimming. Specifically in Lake Ontario. Unless you LIKE being neon green.

And additionally: if you plan to go on the swans in Centreville, bring a towel. :thumbsup:

Photos:
This is a very loose photoshoot- there will be people there with cameras to take photos, many of whom are semi-professional (or at least darned good) So all you have to do is ASK. However, the emphasis of this is to cosplay and have fun, so there won't be any more specific "Ok, now YOUR turn" phototaking. Therefore, it's not necessary to have your photo taken (save for the giant group shots of doom) and if you want some nice shots of you outdoors and without brutal yellow indoor lighting, just ask the people with the cameras!

Directions:
The Toronto Ferry Docks is located at the foot of Bay Street and Queens Quay, just West of the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel.

Directions by TTC
From Union Station take the 509 Harbourfront or the 510 Spadina streetcar south to the Bay and Queen's Quay Stop.

Alternately, take the Bay Bus #6 southbound from the corner of Front and Bay to the Bay and Queen's Quay stop.

Really Alternately, exit Union onto Bay Street and walk South to Queens Quay. (it's a short walk, about 10-15 minutes)

The entrance to the ferry docks is on the south side of the street, just east of the Westin Harbour Castle hotel. Thereís a large, glowing, blinking sign that will advertise the island. Itís hard to miss.

I donít drive, so these directions I can do little with (theyíre from the website).

I honestly suggest taking the TTC. Itís easier, and considering how difficult parking downtown is, never mind how expensive, it really is the better route.

Walk / Drive
Main entrance at foot of Bay St on Queens Quay. Enter through park and enter via walkway between Harbour Castle Westin Hotel and Harbour Castle condominiums. Parking is available 1 block north at Lakeshore and Bay, 1 block west on Queens Quay between Bay and York Sts, 1 block east opposite Toronto Star building adjacent to Captain Johns restaurant.

Other Points:
There will NOT be any BBQ or Fire at this picnic, for 2 reasons. Firstly, costumes and wigs do not do well next to open fire sources, and open flames around a group of hyper teens is normally a bad plan to start with.
Secondly, it requires a $53 dollar permit.


Edit/snip

A date has been chosen!

[B]PLAN TO ATTEND? GOOD!

RSVP!

Send an e-mail, telling me that you, and how many of your friends are coming, so I have a general idea of how large this is going to be. Last year I was expecting about 35 people and ended up with almost 70. I wouldn't be surprised with 100 this year, and I need to notify the island and possibly look into a permit if we do breach those numbers.

EMAIL ME. DO NOT PM OR COMMENT HERE (well commenting here is ok, but for all that is holy e-mail me too!) at

[B]tcpicnic@gmail.com


If you have parental units who are unsure (As I dealt with last year) feel free to have them contact me. ^^ Iím good at soothing fears and being responsible.

If you're interested in being a photographer, please mention it in your RSVP.

Please, for the love of god, RSVP! Hope to hear from you soon. ^^ :bigtu:


....now, let the planning begin!

I'd like to come again, but there is a very good chance that Myself, Ikegami and Sarcasm-Hime will be in Chicago for G-Fest the weekend of July 8-10th. :(

It would be a shame if we had to miss it. I vote for the second annual old people's merry-go-round photo shoot and bumper car deathmatch ! XD

P.S. Don't sink the swanboats! :)

Weeeeell! I was there last year, so I'd love to be there again this year. I'm only not available in mid-July (13th-19th to be specific) so if the date does end up being early July, I will definitely be able to make it, and hopefully the people I came with last year will also come.

And maybe I'll actually cosplay this year.

Tell me there's gonna be Red Rover again. :D

Personally, neither the 2nd (town festival) nor the 9th (moving) are good for me. But if I am able to go, I likely won't wear a costume seeing as my costumes are all hot/layers so don't consider my post too much of a concern ^_^

It will be hard to get lost, as we'll be at the centreville as a large group- and all the signage on the island can point you where to go.

And we all meet up to take the ferry across together anyway, so as long as you're not late, we'll be fine. :D

As things stand- the 2nd has been confirmed. Most of the people on my end (not on Cosplay.com) have said the 9th is out, the 16th is Toronto Trek. The Cosplay BBQ is looking to be moving to August, so we have that weekend as a possible raindate.

Apologies to those who won't be able to attend, but as these things go, there's always someone who can't attend for their schedule.
So;

THE DATE HAS BEEN SET FOR JULY 2ND.

The Raindate will be set when the Cosplay BBQ is decided.

See you there! Don't forget to RSVP!

We start at 11 and meet at the docks, we finish... aroundish 5. People start leaving in small groups. There's a chance there will be fireworks (I'm still checking on that) Which means I'm going to try to stay late with some friends to view them. But don't worry, there's no set 'end' so feel free to leave whenever and with whomever. :D

Seed-chan

Out of curiosity, how many people have RSVPed?

Elemental
06-08-2005, 06:34 PM
*ahem*

NOT ENOUGH!

I'm serious folks, please RSVP. If you haven't recieved a reply from me, then you RSVP isn't in my mailbox. :P I really need a solid idea of the numbers, so if you're coming, take three seconds and e-mail me with "I'm coming!"

I have a working list of approx 10 people. I KNOW more than that are coming. XD

RSVP!

(And for those who asked me last year, again, it means to send an e-mail to TCpicnic@gmail.com and let me know you're attending this event. Also, my name is Amanda. Not Pan, Miss Pan-Chan or LELOLA, nor Archy (Don't ask). )

...though I'll still answer to anything but 'mother'

Elemental - I'm coming from Richmond Hill. The only thing I know how to do with public transport is to get from my house to downtown, lol... Which is pretty close to where I needa get - do I just take the subway down? Is one of the stops really close to Centre Island? I might just need walking directions...

I'll meet up with you at Finch ^^

This goes out to everyone: A bunch of us are gonna meet up at Finch Station at 10 (in front of Timmy's!) , so if anyone along the Yonge Line subway route wants to come with, they can let me know, and we can pick you up at one of the stations.

This is an awesome opportunity to take nice photos of our costumes in a scenic setting under natural lighting. I'm going to wear my Nana (+Anima) costume which I've only worn once before (on Saturday of MTAC). I really need to get some nice photos of that costume. (^^) I'm going to die from the heat of being in a black dress, but to be part of a +Anima Cosplay group, it's worth it. (^_^)

The costumes I have, I don't want to wear to this, so I'm going to make a new one. I was going to make Yuuri with his purple cape from Kyou Kara Maou but considering of the heat that's happening recently, I don't think it's a good idea, plus money is an issue, even though I'm making everything out of broadcloth, for my NAF and CNA costumes. If that doesn't work (I still want to wear Yuuri), I started making Ritsuka from Loveless, a scene in the manga with him in summer clothes. I thought that would be more sensible and cost less since I have the fabric I need except the shorts, ears and tail that I'll be making. That and the visor needs to be bought since I have a beige one and the one I want is white to match the shirt.

Decisions, decisions... if that doesn't work, I can take the same outfit for Ritsuka and put Ryoma in it... *sighs*

TheWestWind
06-12-2005, 10:50 PM
heh... Uchiha Sasuke will probably be my summer costume for a few reasons...
1. It's the coolest costume I'll have considering it's summer
2. I cut my hair for it and now my hair won't fit many of my costumes

So Sasuke it is for Centre Island!

Update

The raindate has been set as the 30th of July, as long as there's nothing I'm not aware of already happening that weekend.


We are meeting at the docks, BEFORE you buy a ticket and enter to get on the ferry, at 11am. We are meeting in front of the building that says "Ferry Docks". That's at the Toronto Ferry Docks at Bay Street and Queens Quay. Before the docks there are a few grassy knolls and trees, as well as a ticket booth that's normally not in use. Cosplayers are bright and colorful. If you're on time, it'll be hard to miss us.


For instructions for what we'll do at the picnic, how to meet us, and anything else, check out the first post or our website (of which I love Pan for) which is here: TCPicnic Website (http://www.lelola.net/misc/cosplaypicnic/2005/index.shtml)

We're meeting up at 11AM at the Centre Island docks.

The 30th IS far. That's because the 9th was no good a raindate for half my friends (And I'm allowed to be biased since I'm running it), the 16th is Toronto Trek, and the 23 is NAF. I didn't want to run against any of those events.

*knocks on wood* But I don't want rain in any case.

It's not like I'm going to study from the moment I wake up to when I sleep... that's definitely too much. Yes, don't be a hypocrite XD And I was thinking on starting Kira since I have a shitload of red fabric from a year ago o_0;;

Probably just randomly hanging around, phototaking and if you want rides?

We go to picnic and photoshoot, so the standard photo-taking, socializing and eating occour. There's Centreville with some rides, and other things like bike rentals as well.

Don't they rent the four person bikes there too??

From what I remember, they do have bike rental for 1,2,3 or 4 ppl on one bike and they even have those car bikes [Its a four seater car but you peddle it like a bike to move it.] Quick question, does anyone have alleriges toward cookies? Reason I'm asking is because I'm going to try to bring chocolate chip cookies from work and I wanted to see if its ok with everyone for the picnic. [Better be safe then sorry] That's all I wanted to know and I hope to see everyone there.

Ah if your making cookies make sure they're 100% nut free. lol

I'm just allergic to peanuts ( and even then, it's not lethal just annoying. ) but I'm sure there will be someone there with some kind of nut allergy, the last thing we need is three people dropping to the floor because they glomped a cosplayer who had traces of nuts on his face and fingers (hey it happened at Anime North2003. lol )

I think I may bring some jumbo freezes like I did last year hot weather, potentially hot costumes... XD

I'm definitely coming now, don't know if I'll have a costume for lack of funds, but I'll be there with my camera! What time are people showing up? I don't know if I'll be able to find this grassy knoll very well if things are all random.

Elemental
06-22-2005, 03:08 PM
Oh for... Let's try this again since people are still asking the same questions:

Update

The raindate has been set as the 30th of July.


We are meeting at the docks, BEFORE you buy a ticket and enter to get on the ferry, at 11am. We are meeting in front of the building that says "Ferry Docks". That's at the Toronto Ferry Docks at Bay Street and Queens Quay. Before the docks there are a few grassy knolls and trees, as well as a ticket booth that's normally not in use. Cosplayers are bright and colorful. If you're on time, it'll be hard to miss us.


For instructions for what we'll do at the picnic, how to meet us, and anything else, check out the first post (http://forums.cosplay.com/showpost.php?p=1065705&postcount=1) or our website (of which I love Pan for) which is here: TCPicnic Website (http://www.lelola.net/misc/cosplaypicnic/2005/index.shtml)

PLEASE RSVP to the E-mail address, because I need to have them all together in ONE place, and this allows me to mass message evryone who HAS RSVPd directly before the picnic about any changes that have been made and a detailed list of instructions. its also good for letting people that the picnic is cancelled due to rain, as occoured last year.

It ONLY takes a second. Please, toss an e-mail saying you (And BLANK number of friends) are coming to

tcpicnic@gmail.com

Thanks.

Approximate total of RSVP's (Approx since I have many messages of "Hey< i'm coming with 3-5 friends!) And erring on the LOWER side of estimation, we have 50 RSVPs.

Going by last year, we'll likely have 100 people show up.

You can get it at Shopper's, or a salon, though Salon's are pricier. ^^ Expect to pay a bit, its more expensive than other brands, but its WELL worth it, and a little goes a long way.

I don't see how that would be a problem (as long as he doesn't mind spending several hours with a lot of interesting people). (^^) I should start bringing my little brother to some of these events. He really lacks confidence and Cosplay has done wonders to dispel my shyness. I think I really just want an excuse to dress him up. XD

Thanks to everyone who showed up for the picnic~ It was quite the success, and we certainly scared the normals. :D I'm horribly burnt, which is sad when you realize I keept reminding people to use sunscreen.

My photos will hopefully be up this evening. I can't wait to see all of yours!

Next year will be even bigger!

It was nice seeing all of the wonderful Cosplayers. All the Alcoholics Anonymous people were amusing. 3/4 of the people who actually came up to ask me and the other Cosplayers around me what the heck we were doing were from that group of people. I posed for tons of pictures taken by strangers. It was worse than that time I wore Kagome to the CNE. XD

Elemental - Thank you so much for organizing this event! It was tons of fun and I loved getting nice photos of my Nana costume. Your costume (along with Pan's, Bonnie's and the Howl's Moving Castle Cosplayers) was one of favourite ones from the event. The +Anima love was amazing and you made such a beautiful and regal Mareen. <3

Oh and you're not alone in the burning. I think I burnt my face. My nose is sort of red and kind of hurts. I'll look so wonderful at my job interview on Monday. XD

Anyhow, thanks to everyone for coming out! We successfully took over the island, had fun and scared the normals. Oh and I'll have my photos up by tomorrow at the latest. (^_^)

Oh, Gai-sensei, you should have seen me today! It was such a wonderful day at Centre Island! There were so many wonderful people, and that beautious Elemental did such a hip job organizing everything! Like you would say, it was truly revolutionary! Although Sakura wasn't there with us, I got the chance to face off against Sasuke, Naruto, AND a mysterious sword woman. In fact, I even got to fight on a children's slide!

It definitely was a day worth remembering, even though I ran 100 laps around the island! Gai-sensei! GAI-SENSEI! GAI-SENSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My first time comming to the cosplay picnic was really fun even though ppl mistaken me for Zorrow [my Tokyo Babylon, the black tophat with the red fabric around it] or Jesus [Subaru X/1999 white outfit]and it was cool to see so many cosplayer there. Congratulation Elemental for organizing the event and I can't wait till next year. Anyway how was it for everyone ells?

Lol, I think you took one of the 10 pictures of me that weren't yaoi-ish, lol! Yay! Now I have something to show my mom! But great pics overall! I didn't really get the chance to see the people you took the pics of, so I got to see them now, lol!

It was great even though we (me, Mekou, Ochika and Scoti) were dementedly late...mostly cause I decided I didn't want to wake up when we decided we'd wake up. It was really nice seeing everyone (in costume) since there are so few cosplayers in Philly. >_<

My first time crossplaying, and it was a character that no one except the serious Saiyuki tards would recognise. XD

Computer doing funny scrolling all over the place thing, so trying to type a reply hurts my head, and Scoti is my smexy master baby. XD

...the end

That was me in the "got wang?" shirt that directed you to where the others were. I was going to the restaurant for food and meet up with Tartrazine and it happened that the ferry docked just as I was walking by.

:( sigh... I was so depressed today when I saw the pics. I planned on having my costume done by Sat. morning... but then my parents un-expectedly wanted to go watch fireworks... and I was out all day until super late.

Boo... sometimes procrastination just doesn't pay off... yesturday I was so upset and frustrated that it couldn't be finished that I just said screw it, I'm not going... aha.. I should have just come as a photographer.. but that idea didn't enter into my head until today...

OMG looking at the pics there were some amazing costumes!! Elemental I like the detailing on your arm and chest piece... how did you do that?? What is the costume from?? So good! Didn't really see too many others that I know (I mean I don't know your screen names) so I can't comment... but I'll keep lookin as more are posted!!

Glad to see you guys had fun and that the weather co-operated!!

If you want to use any of my photos for your galleries, feel free (you don't even have to ask) All I request is that you credit me (Elemental) for the photo.

Now to set the first post up as a photo list as well. Keep 'em coming guys!

^_^ I wished you had have come, even in no costume or in an old one. the point is to socialize and have fun- its too bad your costume plans didn't work out, but next time come join us anyway!

My jewlery/armor pieces are made from Wonderflex and covered in gesso to smooth them out, and then I used fabric paint to draw the raised design. ^_^ Then I painted it all gold, and antiqued it to give the design more depth. The costume is Mareen from an obscure manga called +Anima. a ref pic is here: http://photobucket.com/albums/v521/Elemental2/Mareen/?action=view&current=blue9.jpg
As you can see, I took some liberties with the costume. :D More fun that way.

And dam my camera and it's stupid low batteries!!! :P
But I did get a few of my costume to throw up in my cosplay.com gallery. Man the light settings on saturday were high!

Great shots! (And thanks again for lending me Howl's coat. freezing is never fun. :P)

You probably want to set your PB account so that Raven is the 'guest password' otherwise, people can change the setings, and upload and delete your images. You can set it up in your "account options" page.

just so people don't think I'm just a random pervert who planned the whole unravelling of cloth; my character is an actual anime although obscure still an actual anime by Kazusa Takashima. the Anime is called Wild Rock and my character is Yuuen.

If you are not shy about yaoi or boys in nothing but loinclothes I strongly suggest you lok up on that manga!

Sorry if you're not in many of the pics, everyone was everywhere, and it was kinda hard for us to find and take a pic of you, lol! But I tried to get as many people as possible in the pics! And I put the yaoi scenes because I thought that the song I chose would be too short for all the pics, but it ended up being too long so I had little choice, lol, so you can laugh at them now, yay! lolz!

Did you guys all go home on the subway together, me and Nina-san were playing IN the Groove and when we turned around you guys were all gone. I was sad.
