All this talk of how the gatherings use to be huge..how depressing. But I'm also one of the people who used to attend during its larger more popular days. I also was the gathering host one year..BUT ANYWAYS.
I didn't do a Bleach cosplay last year, but it seems my friends are expressing interest in doing something this year.
We'll see how things go with how other gatherings play out, but if there is no conflicts, then I'll probably show up as Hiyori. With a Nanao and Matsumoto.
Also, food after is always a good idea.
