View Full Version : Cosplay Camping Trip?

08-25-2006, 01:15 PM
Recently I had thought of an idea of going camping with a bunch of con friends, but I thought, what if we got a whole bunch of cosplayers in general to go camping? I know it's too soon to plan an event like this for this year, but would anyone be interested in doing such an event?

I probably would pick either July or August to hold this event (of course not on a convention weekend) and hold it at a state park (it's cheaper and usually nicer). I would need to know of an estimate of who would like to attend something like this (and who would possibly have camping supplies). I would probably require a small downpayment (like a pass), to cover part of the cost of the campsite(s), food, firewood, etc.

If anyone is interested, thinks this is a good/bad idea, etc. Please let me know. I'm really excited about this idea and personally think it's going to be a blast.

Kala, I live *right* outside of a state park...I can check out what campground rental prices are there for you. ^^
(I live in southern Ohio though so I wasn't sure how far you'd want to drive to go camping)

I've never been camping.

A camping trip, you say? I live up a couple hours north of Columbus, but I wouldn't mind making the drive down. We've got a good number of months to think about when and where it should be held, too. Let me know if there are any further developments; this sounds really interesting.

I think this is a great idea, but the only problem is you need to look at the location first, cus some costumes may not survive out in the wilderness, the only ones i can think off the of my head are naruto costumes, its soem sweats, a turtle neck and a vest.

All I have is an olette and tifa costume, they seem normal enough.

Fieldcon. It happened, and it was awesome. It will be happening again this year, though we don't know the dates yet. All of last years info is still up.
If you poke around Radio Free Armageddia you might find some of the photos from it.

The highlight was definitly when the Shishio cosplayer and Cloud cosplayers had a flaming sword fight. There is video of that somewhere too, but I don't have it right now. Needless to say, it was awesome!

Otaku + woods + bonfire + 2 gallons of charcoal fluid = win!

It seems like an awesome idea, but I'd be worried about ruining my costume. I'm in southern Ohio, too, KonekoMiyabi.
