Just curious, but I was wondering if there are any cosplaying/anime groups/clubs/gatherings around the Hampton Roads area? I'd really like to be able to meet and hang out with other cosplayers and such outside of cons, and so I was wondering.

(And if I'm posting this in the wrong area, sorry!)

There's a few school clubs around the area... but the one that I know of the most is the Chesapeake Anime Club (http://www.chesapeakeanime.com), ran by a friend of mine named Justin.

Many members of that club meet up for little cosplay related photoshoots or just hang out together at a friends house or meet for a movie/dinner. *misses hanging out with them*

Also, I like meeting new friends and love introducing them to my friends. :D My friend Cat would like to start a cosplay group, but I'm not too sure on the details there. XD;;

Hampton Roads.....is in.... Virginia? XD Um, I guess it's the general Hampton, Newport News, Poq, Yorktown, etc area.

dollssoulkirie- I'm homeschooled (actually, now I go to TNCC, but I just turned 17, so I'm *technically* still high school age :D), so I don't think I'd be allowed to join any school club, but it'd be cool if I could. ^_^

However, I'm close to Cheasapeake, so maybe I could join that club. :D

And, cosplay club? Sounds fun. :D If she needs any help, and isn't too far away, I would gladly join and assist in what way I can.

AND XD, I <333 meeting new friends also, and intoducing them to my friends, too. ^_^

Are you going to katsucon?

I wish :_: I have no time or money. It's so sad.

But, well, maybe if I order my Sakura wig (like, right now o_o Ten days til, and I really don't want my hair to be kool-aid color for two months again), scrape together some money, and fix my costume, I might be able to manage a day or two. I might even be able to get Wendy to come with, and be Rin again. :D Stupid college spd class be darned. XD

Hmm..... *ponders* *_* I really want to go. I guess we'll see. But if I somehow manage to make it, I'll definately post it here.

Even I am having trouble getting there from where I am now. Costumes still need finishing too. Out of curiosity, ever been to Nekocon? I've always wanted to go since it's near where I live, but I'm in college at the time >_<

I actually went to Nekocon 8 in November. :D They just moved it to the new Convention Center by Coliseum, so it's just 5-10 minutes away from my house. It was pretty good, but hopefully it wil be a lot better this year once they've gotten settled.

And any chance of me going to Katsucon just died. :_: My brother got strep, and now all of us are sick.

Yay, I'm not sick anymore, but my bf and drama teacher are. XD I guess that's what happenes when they breathe my air.

Anyway, I'm considering starting a Hamton Roads Anime Club. It was actually my *mom's* idea. XD However, I'll will be in attendance at CAC, too. :D

:D

I have an idea of what to do, but I hope to get a better idea and plan once I've been to CAC.

And I guess this gives me another reason to finally get my site up. XD

When I saw "CAC" I thought you meant "Contemporary Art Centre" and I was like "omgzzzz yes." Then I was like "uh, duh, Chesapeake Anime Club."

Uh, yeah, I don't really go to any anime clubs per se, but I know CAC is pretty popular. I live in Virginia Beach.

Art Centre? Ooo, where? *artist*

And, actually, I have decided to start the anime/cosplay club I was talking about. :D Myself, theonlyangel77, and my best friend are working on it. Even got a website in the works! We'll hopefully be advertizing at AMA.

But, yes. I will be going to CAC meetings and such... Even got some other friends to join. The CAC was pretty happy about that, because they said they barely even had 50 members anymore. :_:
