Holiday gathering

Thanks everyone for coming to November's shoot! Our next photoshoot will be in January. For December we're planning a holiday party to be held in Lynnwood.

Date: Saturday, December 15th
Time: 3:45 p.m. - late evening/night
Meet-up location:
3:00 - 3:45 Albertsons shopping plaza on Highway 99 and 196th Street in Lynnwood
Party locations:
3:45 - 5:15 Lynnwood Ice Center, Funtasia (ice skating or arcade, you choose which group)
5:15 - 7:00 Alderwood Mall (dinner and shopping)
7:00 - late Lynnwood Bowl & Skate (bowling, roller skating, and gift exchange)


Albertsons 19500 Highway 99 Ste 110 * Lynnwood, WA 98036 (off Hwy 99 and 196th)
Ice Center 19803 - 68th Ave. W * Lynnwood, WA 98036 (off 196th)
Funtasia 7212 220th SW * Edmonds, WA. 98026 (off Hwy 99)
Alderwood Mall 3000 184th Street SW, Suite 145 * Lynnwood, WA 98037
Lynnwood Bowl & Skate 6210 200th Street SW * Lynnwood, WA 98036 (off Hwy 99)




Party stuff
- Dress code is casual/street cosplay or regular clothing. Wear something you can be active in. Wigs and a few small props are okay, but keep it simple. No weapons, big wings, large props, etc. this time. Keep in mind that we are in a crowded public place and there will be families with small children around.
- There will be a White Elephant gift exchange, limit $10. Bring a wrapped gift and hand it to me when you arrive. When we regroup after dinner we'll do the exchange. Anything you want to bring is fine, just make sure it's something you wouldn't mind getting yourself. Cheap is good, tacky not so much (for this exchange).

There, now I'll get instant email notifications of this event as well. I'll start the outward notification circle soon.

And... I fully support this idea of a "Tacoma" based area shoot. Thats great for my travel schedule... I like places around home!!

Same here. I like areas closer to home especially since I drive an SUV. >_<

Though I did try to look for places far north but really, other than places open for weddings (and asking an arm, a leg, and a body attached) I just couldn't find any where. But maybe people in the area will have better luck?

I'm just worried if we have a Tacoma based shoot for this one we'd miss out on Zoolights in December.

We'll see what comes up as the best location for December, and how well Tacoma works for everyone. I'd just eventually like to hold a shoot in my home area as well. But that might not be until January or February.

I'll start researching locations up on my end. For now, let's focus on picking the place we'll be at this time.

Zoolights is an event that happens at Point Defiance Zoo. Holiday lights everywhere. The lights move and are in the shape of animals and stuff like that. There's also a machine that makes fake snow now. Huge nutcrackers. It's pretty spiffy.

And I know what you mean Kumi-chan. I'm just unfamiliar with the area and don't know what could be used as a good area to shoot at. Sorry.

Tacoma is a bit far for us but me and my friends will definitely be there! Especially if it's the 17th (since that's my birthday XD!)

Almost sounds like The Lights of Christmas in Stanwood's Warm Beach (I believe is the name of teh grounds. Beautiful place. Go every year. Love it)

Never heard of it. Sounds spiffy though.

Those are a couple of places in the Seattle area that could work.

Tacoma is a bit of a drive for us as well as we are coming down from Bellingham, but as long as there are good directions provided to whereever we meet, we should be able to make it.

See how I'm being good and not asking for a photoshoot in *my* home area?

Bellingham is a far cry away from us down south. I wouldn't mind, I used to live up in that area (well, Mount Vernon, but close enough).

Heck, let's just all go to Blaine and romp around the Peach Arch Park one of these days.

Ok, I feel stupid. I've never even heard of the city of Blaine.. it is a city you're referring to right?
