Anime Picnic!?

Ready for some Sun and Anime!?
July 14th 2007
2 pm ( that’s afternoon people)
Como Park South Picnic area
Saint Paul, Minnesota
I am holding a anime picnic.

This picnic will have Cosplay , Contest and Games.. Provided by me! Because I am great.. And have spend a great deal of money so far… know how you can repay me!?
Bring some great food! This picnic is also potluck ( potluck = bring something to share… otherwise it’s grass for you.. :nod: )

Some things we ask of you to bring.!
Blanket - for you to sit on.. XD
Some Thing to share with everyone else ( having a cholate chip cook is better than sharing a stick of pocky! >.>)
Water to drink ( just incase I run out)

Ok now for some Events!
So Far I have a couple of Contest and Games in mind. I will give away Prizes for the winners.

1 minute Cosplay
We will break into Teams of 2 , Blue team and Red team. First We will name a theme for your inspiration ( kung foo fighter , or Magical girl) a anime themed character.
You will then be sent behind the curtains, and have 1 minutia to come up with the best cosplay outfit! ( which the crowd will judge by applauding .
Rules of this game.

1. Each Member of your cosplay Team must be model at least once.
2. Your teammates may help you dress, but not before I start the clock
3. No Nudity ! ( idk why you would get naked in a park anyways but whatever) no reason to take your clothes off you can simply but the costume over them~

Ninja / Pirate scavenger hunts
You will break into 2 equal teams, and have a 15 min time limit. You will pick a group leader and I will give them a map , and a list of what you are suppose to collect. One will be ninja themed and the other pirate. At the end of 15 mins which ever team has the most items wins!

Piñata ( which will cost 1$ to join in the fun)
Everyone pretty much knows what this is.. I am asking for 1$ to help pay for him,… since I had to buy and stuff them of prizes~ for your dollar you will get 3 cracks at the little rat and some of the swag once he is broke. The person who breaks him will also receive a prize!

If you have some Ideas of some Games to play pm me , I would love to hear them!

Note to Cosplayers- Remenber it is going to be the middle of July, wearing a wool suit isn’t the best idea! So before you pick which cosplay you’re gonna wear don’t forget the weather!

Also Note about the Weather, If it rains that weekend. We will have the picnic the following week the 21st of July. And if it is over 100degrees the picnic will also be on the following week. Since Como doesn’t have much of a shaded area I am bringing a tent and ice water so we can battle the heat! ( I wanted to have this sooner… but people have things planned already)

That definately sounds like a lot of fun. If I'm back from my trip by then I'll try to be there. I'm a silly MN cosplayer with small magical girl costumes I have no buisness wearing in the middle of winter, so methinks any one of them would be quite comfortable in July.
Silence & Song Cosplay
Salad Time Soldiers

Costumes for this Season:
Subaru - .hack//SIGN
Crystal - Pokemon
Li Kohran - Sakura Taisen
Eirote - Scrapped Princess
Sarasa - Basara

Hopefully more of these kinds of things happen in the fall... when I ARRIVE.
