The Boston Cosplay Beach Gathering strikes back!

Alright, I figured I'd start plans for this nice and early again this year. I'm hoping this will get pretty big, just to add to the fun.

The cosplay beach gathering is a fun little cosplay event held at Revere Beach by the Wonderland stop on the blue line. Last year there was a lot of food, fun and a lot more sun (owie). Last year we also celebrated my 16th birthday, and I was really hoping that we could celebrate my 17th this year!

During the day we also have a potluck picnic, meaning everyone brings food to share with the group. The general idea of cosplay for this gathering is "bathing suit" concept, so something functional in the water based off of a character.

Are you guys interested in this event again this year? Because this year I'll be going to camp through most of July and for ten days in August I'll be in California. So I'll put some of the dates in August that I'll be available and we can get some voting started. Also, like the cosplay picnic I'd like to start a list of people attending, costumes and food brought as we get closer to the event.

The official date is the 11th!
So mark your calendars, everyone!

Yay beach gathering! :-)

I definately bring my Rinoa again - I voted for the 11th, because July seems like such a crazy con time. That should allow people to recover a bit. ^^

Anything but September is fine with me.

Where is this usually held? (I know it's Boston, but the general location)

I'm glad that you think you can come, shiva! We don't chill nearly enough.

Yay, this again! I don't know how well the beaches are doing this year. (Revere always seems to have some sort of water issue or something)

August is best for me, because I'll be on the vineyard on the 28th.

oooh, I'd love to come this year, but its not too likely I can make it. I'll post again if I'm sure. The 11th is really the only date I could make it, if I can at all.

Oh yeah! I'm so down for this again, and hopefully I'll have a better (or more creative) swimsuit this time around for this.

The 11th is perfect for me as well. Pretty much it's the last days I have until my 21st on the 14th and then I'm in Vegas for five days...then it's back to college. I'd love to wrap up summer with another one of these gatherings again.

The 11th seems good for me...It's usually the best weather too, New England-wise.

I'm suspecting September 1st is gonna be MassArt move in day so I don't believe that will work, any other date is fine by me. And I'll find something cool to wear. And I can bring my grill again if its wanted.

Haha, at first I thought it was a "Bleach" gathering xD;; And was like WTF
(Silly sleepy me)

Hopefully i'll sew my Suzumiya Haruhi bathing suit tight enough this time so it doesn't try to abandon body again XD;; (Pretty akward at the AB swimsuit gathering)
Other then that, I'd love to check this gathering out :3

You bring the grill. I'll bring the meat.
