74th Annual Boston Cosplay Picnic.

74th Annual Boston Cosplay Pic-i-nic
Where: Boston Common (Near the Gazeebo)
When: June 7th, 1:30pm -5.00pm. (Date changed due to projected thunderstorms)
What: Potluck, so everybodah bring some foods.
__________________
May 31st is no longer the official picnic day due to inclimate weather. A meet up will still be done, but it will be more of an informal meet up. We do apologize for the change in date as we know that this change does effected quite a few people.
__________________
No major changes from this year to last save for location. It should be a very chill experience, we get together, we eat, we have a few laughs, we take pictures, we can discuss the rest of the cosplay year.

As usual, zaniness is not discouraged, but keeping one's self in check so we don't freak out the normies too much is expected. Also, because this is in the summertime, there will more than likely be other events going on (baseball, religious pampheting, dogwalking, etc) so be respectful of other people's events.

But the name of the game is having fun.

Here's a short list of the pot luck offerings already mentioned in the thread:

Sephygoth - Trashbags
AgentM - Japanese Confectionery
Zootgirl15 - Chips and Lemonade
CrazyFlower - Assorted Utensils
Gale - Cheese and Crackers
Mesoian - Chocolate Cake

In the thread, please put down at least a potential offering when RSVPing. It's totally pot luck, so if everyone brings one thing, I'm sure we'll all get our even fill.
__________________

Wassup everybody!

It's about that time again; Time to discuss the upcoming Boston Cosplay Picnic!

Thus far, I'm think that Between May 31st and June 14th are the best time, as it fills up the gap between summer cons.

So anyone got an objections? Expectations? Acedotes? We all know the drill so post what's on your mind so we know what the low down is.

Okay, glad the poll's closed before more than three people voted. But 74th? Funny. Anyways, can we make a new poll or for that do we need a whole new thread?

naw, new thread = bah humbug
the lolita gathering might be planned around June 14th,
reason for that being: its not TOO hot, its around anime next, and just after memorial day. But I'm letting pembroke ppl take care of that one too^^
I'm up for weekend after memorial day personally, but it doesnt matter.

I think a lot of high school graduations may be May 31 or June 7, so maybe June 14 will be best?

Yeah, there's never a way to please everyone. One of my favorite quotes: "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." (Bill Cosby)

I think there's a good mix of graduations on Saturdays and Sundays. I think mine was a Saturday? It was 8 years ago (yikes!) so I can't recall correctly.

I'm really looking forward to this! I didn't get involved in the New England/Boston cosplay scene until after all the summer events had passed.

Sign me up for the picnic this year. Any idea where we're gonna hold it this time around? Hopefully the Commons won't be undergoing a pruning this year. XP It'd be nice to have the 74th picnic held in the same area the first two picnics were in.

Costume and food TBA.

I don't graduate until May 2nd, so I'm still good as long as I'm still in Boston. If the common isn't open, the Public Gardens are gorgeous in spring. (Or are they part of the Common technically? ^^

Congrats ^_^

I agree both are gorgeous in the spring! (technically they are two separate entities, eventho they are right next to each other) Especially when the cherry blossoms are out (I now have to guess tho since I no longer live right off the commons, due to graduating last summer XD)

^^;; my hs graduation was on a Thursday, and what would have been my college one (if the admin hadn't messed up my paperwork barring me from going ) would have been a Tuesday. All of the ones I've known about or attended for me & for friends/relatives have all been weekday. So I don't think that picking a Saturday will much interfere with those.

That said, I'm thinking May 31st might be a nice date, tho I do not wanna say for sure till I start my new job.

alls the same to me ^^
if nothing, then we can try the gazebo or section on the OTHER side of the frog pond.
But we'll see if the mayhem is cleaned up in the park.
Also, we could adopt the spot under/near the pond...forgot the names of the trees there, you can totally hide inside them XD

well, at least those that attend will make the effort to pm/reply to confirm. No useless voting and hikiing up the poll to one nonsense majority as in the past, anonymous jazz liek that belongs to 4chan.
