Smile Join! Midwest Anime and Cosplay Group!

If your in the Midwest of the United States and your looking for a group that you can chill with for cons or clubs then join the party!

I'm not the site owner, but a very active member. This is our About Us.
Our main organizer's nickname is Lord-Zero-. This is what he came up with:

Midwest Anime and Cosplay Group, or MACG for short, pretty much explains itself. I've noticed that several people have tried making a group just for this but it had always epically failed. I thought I'd take my shot at this and try to keep it alive!

Anime Aspect: This group is largely targeted at all Anime lovers, mainly in the midwest region though we're willing to except those who aren't. The Anime people love can range from big American crazes like Dragon Ball Z, Code Geass, and Death Note to the huge Japanese crazes like Full Metal Alchemist, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Pani Poni Dash!.

Cosplay Aspect: I myself cosplay, but sadly I've done it solo for a while and have found it quite boring this way. So I wanted cosplayers to have a chance to find someone they could cosplay with, that is the main intent for the cosplay part of MACG.

You can Contact this sites Moderator in the following ways:

PS3 Account: Lord-Zero-

E-mail: Casinoroyale007qos@hotmail.com

Gaia Online Username: Daniel Craig

We're mainly based in Wisconsin but we want each state to have it's own leader. We are a fledgeling organization but we want to connect the Midwest like Cosplay.com does with the world, but on a smaller scale.
Now, when it comes to a meeting of members of the organization it would be beautiful if we could all meet together, but the most likely result is that we would set up meetings at conventions held in the Midwest.

The Midwest referring to:

-Wisconsin
-Minnesota
-Michigan
-Indiana
-Illinois
-Ohio
-Iowa
-Missouri
-North Dakota
-South Dakota
-Nebraska
-Kansas

We are currently going to a Milwaukee Wisconsin based convention in March: Friday the 12th to Sunday the 14th.
The convention is called Anime Milwaukee 3.5 or AMKE 2010.
Con Site: www.animemilwaukee.com
Con Forum: www.animemilwaukee.com/forum

Currently this convention has guests such as:

-Vic Mignogna
-Chris Sabat
-LittleKuriboh
-Todd Haberkorn
-Wendy Powell
-Uncle Yo
-Spoony Bards
-Kirbopher
-Kroze

We are hosting a room on Saturday from 1-2 p.m. Hope to see you there!

Do you have any info on this group? Like what state is it based in, when does the group meet, etc?

You will probably attract more people if you post more info.

Edit:

I posted this BEFORE the post was updated with all that info. lol

Ya I had the same problem! What happens is that it doesn't register you until you fill out at least a little bit of your profile. I was like, "I wasn't accepted??? Whyyy!" "Did you fill out your profile?" "... oh... *typeitytype* Neva Mind!"

Anime Bingo! with MACG - 2011 It's Bingo with Anime, insane right?

MACG will be at ACen next year!

Daniel Craig:

"What is MACG?: MACG or the Midwest Anime and Cosplay Group, is a group I started in Milwaukee, WI. I don't have any anime groups by me that I no of so I started an online group trying to connect all of the Midwest together in a large community of Anime and Cosplay lovers and fans. I've made many cool friends and hope to make more. We host special events and panels at other cons but we'd like to expand and become a little more known to our fellow Midwesternites.

How will this panel work?:

I'd like to have a 30 minute to an hour gap for people to show up and sign up early, and while they're signing up they can have their board filled out before we even start and during this 30 minute period I could start setting up while my helpers take names and hand out boards. If you sign up within the first 30 minutes you will receive a free Naruto yo-yo, while supplies last. Once you've filled out the guest book you'll be given a card that looks like this.


FRONT


BACK

The front will contain the board and rules the back will contain the list of anime, and what games we'll be playing. Each space on the board has 12 little squares with a corresponding number. Since I doubt I'll have tables with each round you'll mark of the corresponding number so for round one you will fill in the 1 box, for round two you'll fill in the two box, and so on. The board is blank so you'll have to fill it in yourself. obviously the middle space is the free space.

Each round I will show a ten second clip of a randomly played anime, you will have a couple of seconds to mark it in on your board and then I'll show the next one, not telling you the name of the anime, this way those who know will have an advantage over those who don't. After the next ten second clip is played I will then tell the name of the last anime I played this way the ones who didn't know can mark it off on their board. Once who have bingo you will promptly stand and either say BINGO! or ANIME! which ever is your cup of tea. You'll come up front with your board, we'll make sure you're not lying or cheating, if you are you will be removed from the panel, if you're not you'll be able to choose from our many fabulous prizes, ranging from figures, wall scrolls, towels, dvds, and even complete manga series.

If time permits, after Bingo we'd discuss what MACG is and hopefully gain some members and friends in the process, I'll even have enough prizes to run at least two or three sessions if programming permits, such as a Night version with more games perhaps, or an early bird special, or just a normal game of bingo at 2p.m..

I ran this panel at Anime Milwaukee a year ago and had over 60 people show up to play. I have perfected the way it plays out so it'll run smoother, I must say that a small time frame between panels is quite crucial to help move the panel along."

Hope to see you there!
