View Full Version : Cosplaying in a park...

07-29-2002, 12:17 AM
I was in Tokyo recently, which is what made me think of this. Every Sunday a good number of cosplayers get together and hang out at this one park in Tokyo. Wouldn't it be fun to do that somewhere? My friend and I are moving to NYC for college soon, so we were actually thinking about it... (there's really no point in bothering where we are now, as there is no decent sized park to lurk in)

It sounds like fun! Only thing is . . . err . . . personally I don't think wearing costumes around NYC is a good idea. I mean, I'm not saying, "ah! you're gonna get attacked!". I'm just saying, New Yorkers are not easily fazed but it would draw a lot of attention, and I'm not sure all of it would be positive. I think a cosplayer gathering is a good idea, just . . . don't do it in Central Park. lol. I don't know, maybe I'm being silly . . . but I'm going to AXNY, and I'm going to the trouble of changing when I get to the hotel cause I don't think riding the subway as Sanzo would be well-advised.

I wouldn't even think of doing it in Central Park... I know how it is with negative attention though. **; Not much fun. More than my share of that... I don't know that I'd actually do this anyway. It takes me too long to get ready in my costumes and I like being "on display" for people who appreciate it in the proper way. ^_^ It is a fun idea though!
