No definite date picked between those three yet, since the poll closed a month earlier then scheduled and only 3 people voted, and that's not nearly enough peoples to determine a preferred date from.

Keep an eye on the 1st post cause that's where the official date will be posted when it is decided upon.

I'm pretty sure I can do whatever date, just start getting a list of what to bring together and I'm there.

I'll probably bring a fruit platter or something. Probably some plates, forks, toothpicks etc.

hi ^_^ I've been doing cosplay and going to AB for a few years now, I live in Boston too. But I've never been to a "cosplay picnic". It sounds really interesting!
What do you all do there? Do we bring food?
Where do you have it? At Boston common...So do you arrive in cosplay or where do you change O_O i can't imagine wearing my cosplay randomly on the T..

just curious ^^

Works like a normal picnic except peoples attending are in cosplay.

Everyone brings food, like a potluck.

As said previously in the thread it is at the commons (last year wasn't cause the commons was having work done and was all blocked off >_<)

You arrive in cosplay since there is really no where to change.

It's really no big deal riding on the T in cosplay I've done it bunches of times the worst you'll get are a few weird looks

One person like 3 yrs ago had a bad experience wearing a cosplay on the T after the picnic, but I think she's settled with that one for now ^^ Plus, there's lots of fellow cosplayers who are aware of this kinda thing, so no one randomly riding the T ever gets really close to us.

Otherwise, the picnics are usually pretty sweet. I missed last yr because well, we walked past it twice without realizing it XD
But yeah, its been nice. 2006 rained us to Harvard, 2007 construction in boston commons moved us to Harvard. We always have a backup it seems.
If it rains this yr, Gazebo we go!

Is anyone thinking of forming a small cosplay group for this picnic? I usually show up in a costume I have lying around, but I don't really have anything completely put together yet. Plus, groups are fun, and I'm rather up to cosplaying (nearly) anything. ^^;

Seems like we're leanign more towards that last day in MAY (31st)
June has a few things going for it too, instead of forcing it all at once, why not seperate it all and ppl can pick n choosey hai?
June 14th loks like it will contain the Lolita gathering, BUT WE"RE NOT SURE. ie thats not my call. So to accomodate the good ppl that might be arranging that gathering, We'd like to end May with a bang. (note 2006 June 10th, last yr forgot) we've been in and around 1-2 weeks of June 1st anyway thru the years.

^_^ Thanks for keeping my gathering in mind!

Yes, June 14th is the hopeful date of the tea party! I should have a thread up very soon (tomorrow or the day after) but I still have to talk to Bruce and see what his schedule is like as well so the date isn't set in stone just yet!

Keep in mind, some people want to go to ANext as well, which is the weekend of June 21st.

If all goes well, I may wear the same outfit to both the tea party and the picnic. (Gotta love banging out a skirt in a week)
