The groups is something new that Admin is trying out.

Welcome back. The meetings we are trying to have once an month. We started the group so we can locate fellow cosplayers. Right now there is an hand full of us here. We had only one meet and greet. We talk about the costumes we made, what we plan on making next, what cons we went to, just various differant things or just to hang out.

I am the seamstress of the group. I am here to help with costume needs. Being if it is to teach sewing, making the patterns, ect....... I will try to help the best I can.

So, welcome to the group and hope you enjoy your stay with us.:bigtu:

Sorry, folks. I had planned on going until I realized the meeting was in Camarillo, not Ventura. <no car!!> I don't have a finished costume to show off in either yet :bigcry: But I start my new job tomorrow, so both those things will change soon!

I wanted to ask you guys though, if anyone knows of a place in the area that sells the blue insulation foam blocks for prop sword making. I went to Lowes in Ventura and Home Depot in Oxnard, and neither had any. :mad: My cosplay endeavors require foam!!! Has anyone seen any around here?

I will bring some fun props next time ^_^

I am glad I stumbled onto this. We're in Moorpark. Scott has a robotics class on Saturdays in W.H., but I'm the costumer and prop maker. I've got to make enhancements to Big Al along with 2 other new fabric based cosplays for AX this year, so meeting some fellow fans in VC would be fun.
Feral: if you need styrofoam, you're likely to find white instead of blue. Please send a P.M. with a description of the sword you are making if you would like some specific advice. I hope to make a pirate sword someday so I'd like to exchange ideas.

If you're in Ventura.. there's a really great fabric store on Main St. that has a nice selection of Foam (it's right near where I work). Send me a PM or hit me up on AIM and I'll tell you about it (or even meet up with you and take you there myself if you're up for it)

And to the wonderful people who made Big Al.. I most definitely welcome you! ^_________^

Greetings and salutations,

I hail from Oxnard and just saw this thread after being busy for the last couple months with college where I am going to film school and all that but would love to do a meet up and you guys can come to my house if a spot is needed.

I have not done any cosplay for a while due to saving up funds for my new Sony HDR FX1 and saving for my budget for films but I am getting a green screen if any of you want pics of your costumes I can drop in any backdrop you want.

I work at the Oxnard Ice Skating Center if any of you wish to say hi.

Well take care,
Joe

There's a place on Main St. Called Fabric Town USA. It's right between Telegraph and Katherine/Loma Vista

They have huge racks of Foam there. Check it out!

And come to meetings, we'd love to meet you ^^

05-19-2006, 06:40 PM
(response from a msg forever ago) Thanks, Gainax. I've been to Fabric Town and it's fabulous.. I got everything I needed for 2 of my cosplays there :) But the foam I was refering to is extruded polystyrene for insulating houses (or making giant prop swords), not the squishy upholstery foam you find at fabric stores.

Kagato, I don't know which of those you're looking for, but if it's the rigid insulation kind, I think we're SOL. Meowl gave me a couple links to some construction material wholesalers in the area, but I haven't had time to look into them. I think we determined that the problem is no one in southern California NEEDS insulation in their houses!!! ^_^

Joe, hi nice to meet you. That's really cool about the green screen, I might have to take you up on that in the future.

This is somewhat random, but just popping in to say that I may be moving to the Ventura area and if so, would love to meet you guys!

I say *may* because I still need to find a place to live..but pending that, do you think that I could come to the meetings and such? I don't know a single soul in Ventura so it would be nice to meet a few people from here.

aw cool my idea was actually taken. lol ^^'

okey dokey, directions and stuff on how to get to Constitution Park in Camarillo:
South on the 101: Exit Carmen Drive, turn left onto Ventura Road, turn left onto carmen (at the first light, over the freeway) turn left on Camarillo Road (at the Wells Fargo Bank) then turn right into the first parking lot at Constitution Park.
North on the 101: Exit Carmen Drive. turn right (into the middle lane), turn left on Camarillo Road (at the Wells Fargo Bank) then turn right into the first parking lot at Constitution Park.
There is a parking lot directly behind the stage area which is very convenient for performers to use.

ok, and thats how you get there! (thanks typing directions Mom! since i dont know my freaking way around ^-^;; ) anyway, the park is the huge grassy area with a giant stage in the middle of it, with a rose garden and big trees and all that stuff. ^^

PEOPLE WILL SEE US, its a very open area, two sides bordering the park are busy roads, (so lets not be pushing anyone into the street now ok? :angel: ) so if ya dont want to be seen in ur costume, well...i dont know...dont waer it? as for a place to change from normal human being to all powerful cosplayer; i know not of a place near by that we might be able to change in sadly. And like firedramage said, bring a lunch or bento, or something. (unless we can invade Mika Sushi again. lol )

im pretty sure everyone can come in costume if they want, its optional. (i kno i'll be my Sexy o jutsu Naruto xD )
there'll be plenty of space to take good pictures also. so that would make the camera a good thing to bring too. ill be there a bit early in-costume waitin' for all ye other ppls.

IF ANYONE HAS ANY TROUBBLE AT ALL WITH THESE DIRECTIONS, PM ME FOR MY CELL PHONE NUMBER AND ALL THAT SO YOU CAN CALL AND SORT THE PORBLOM OUT N ALL THAT. ^__^

and b4 my little speech tht makes me feel so improtant is over lol, we want as many of all you newbie peoples who havent come to meetings before to come to this one so we can all get ta know eachother and all that good stuff!! ^__^ thank you. ^^ :angel2:

Hey! Yeah, it's true, I live in Westlake Village, I don't even know what county I live in... ><' But I'm a cosplaying otaku, so I meet the other two requirements! By the way, I changed my mind about cosplaying Sasuke, and I am now indecisive - what should I cosplay as? Choices: Summoner Yuna, Sasuke, SNJ Sasuke, Misao Makimachi, Haruno Sakura, Hitsugaya Toushirou. Somebody please help me!



I know if I get the captain's robe done I'm going as SoiFong. I have the hakama, the haulter, the yellow obi and the white obi done. Oh, an the sleeve's to the captain's robe is done to. Still working on the wig, tho, its an pain the @$$. An I started this when Friday, I've been an busy little bee.

But, it depends on what you feel like wearing Saturday or you can do this. Lay out which ones you think you may want to wear, look at them and the one that draws your eyes the most is the one you will wear. I do this most of the time, funny, huh? But, either way, whatever you choose to wear is ok, as long it doesn't overly show alot of skin, being its in an park near alot of traffic.

I wanted to make a quick reply to my post about foam earlier in this thread. Marty's Hobbies on Moorpark Road in Thousand Oaks carries a number of items for prop making, including rigid foam, foam cutting tools, balsa wood, ect..

I've known about the place since I've been in the area, but didn't think to look there for foam. Turns out RC Airplane enthusists use the stuff to make planes.

(The soft foam in fabric stores is great for padding, but not really rigid enough for sword like props.)

So, the meeting will be either Sat. July 22 (if no one is goin con) or Sat. July 29 (if there are alot of people goin to con). So, let me know. Time and place has not been set in stone, yet. Just waiting on feedback from everyone.

Ok, i guess the date is settled then.

Meeting

Date: July 29
Time: 2:00 p.m. ( I notice that noon had some problems, also trafic at noon is an $%%^$ ) ( If there is problem with the time let me, know.)
Place: Constitution Park (again) (directions are in the thread already)

If there are any problems, yell...lol.

Oh, thats creepy I was thinking of P.M.-ing Admin about the group websites on how to go about getting one.

Subject discussion.

Website ( by Gainax Boy's request)
Officer's postions
Mascott

Anyother ideas for subject discussion or we can stay with these three for now?

Did I miss anything >.<;; ?

For the website- someone needs a domain and Dreamweaver, to design the site. Worst case scenario, just get a Proboards account and modify it from there. ^^;

Officer's positions- What positions are available, what are the requirements, and who wants to run for what?

Mascot- Designing things like this are my specialty. If you want me to have a crack at it... well, I have a month in Arizona. XD

As, for Officer's positions. Only one has been filled. Don't know what other's they want added.

Mascot, sure go ahead and make some design's, it'll give you something to do overthere. So, you wouldn't go nuts. If you do, try differant ideas from cute to dark.

I've worked with Dreamweaver and website design, so I could do it, but I'd need either access to a PC version of Dreamweaver or a Mac with Dreamweaver on it. I would love to buy the webspace for it, but I honestly can't afford it. If you guys just want to go with a Proboards site, I can get one for us and modify it.

I think the idea of 'Librarian' is a very good idea. I also think that it would be a good idea to have someone to organize larger group events, like skits for masquerades or fanmovies.

Any guidelines in particular you guys feel should be set for the mascot? Like, boy or girl, chibi or not, shojo or shonen style, etcetera?

Quartermaster's: Helps with finding materials, advice on prop, costume and accessiores making, sometime's helping with the design of costume's. An, there can be more that one person in the givin areas. At least that what it was when I was in K.A.G. (Klingon Assult Group) over 10 yrs ago.

O.k. the date sounds fine. But, we have one member who can't make it on the 3rd and 5th weekends of the month and I think thats our soon to be Website Admin. I'm not for sure.

Cosplay is alittle out of place there if you get my point.
I'll be alittle more afraid of the adults than the kids. You see I'm an oddity in military housing since I can "sew". An I'm just not ready to get slam with sewing requests at this moment.
Nah, Sundays are not good for me. As for the meeting its stays schedule for the current date. An you guys still didn't answer me. McD's or Sushi for lunch?

08-01-2006, 08:24 PM

So, there would be no distraction from group bussiness and i don't think anyone would want to get BBQ sauce on thier cosplay it would be an real B**** to get out. But you can go Otaku if you want. So, let me know Sat or Sun for the meeting.

But, next month there will be cosplay. Speaking of next month I have an date for the meeting. Sept 23. My parents will be visiting that weekend and my mom wants to see the cosplay life.

I do believe I'll be dragging my brother to this one. I'll either force him to put Otakon (Hal Emmerich-Metal Gear Solid) back together, or he'll be out of costume.

09-22-2006, 12:33 PM
Where are you coming from?

From Ventura and all areas north:
101 Southbound, exit Carmen Drive. Make a left once you get off of the exit. (You should see In-n-Out on your left side). Make a left onto Carmen Drive (You should be on the overpass). Turn left on Paseo Camarillo. The park should be on your right side if you've done all of this (I'm going through it in my head as we speak.

From Newbury Park and all other places south:
101 Northbound. Exit Carmen. Turn right onto Carmen Drive. Turn left onto Paseo Camarillo. The park, again, should be on the right.

From places off of the 118:
Take 118 West to 23 South. 23 South leads to 101 Northbound. Follow the above directions after that.

Hello all, i just finished reading through the 16 pages and it seems you guys have a pretty soild group going here. My name is Lawrence Palomo and i am out of Simi Valley. I am still new to cosplay, my only experience was 1 day at anime expo '06 as Vash. I am not new to conventions though, i have attended GenconLA '04 '05, GenconIndy '05, Wizard World '04 '05, Comic Con '04 '05. I quickly got into cosplay after anime expo and almost made the trip to AOD but it was to short notice. I am interested in going to Mikomicon this weekend but it is really short notice and i dont know if any of my friends would want to tag along. It seems your base meetings where in Camarillo, which isnt far from Simi, but i cant drive intel starting next month. All and all i am interested in meeting new people and having a good time.

Mikomicon is over for 2006, but they plan to be back next year. For those of you who missed it...you missed an outstanding first time con. After talking with the organizers I learned that a small profit might be in the offing (when all the coins are counted) and that approximately 1000 folks wandered through the con. The bands were great, the panels were outstanding, the dealers hall was wonderful and the administration (reg, seating, pre-planning, etc.) was one of the best I've ever witnessed. If I had a single complaint it would have to be the lack of decent food, but I don't think most attendees minded eating junk food for three days. Mikomicon ROCKED! Don't miss it next year.
