Beach Meet Boston 2008

Since the last 2 years have really just been superb, we'd like to introduce another to the stack.
Same place: Revere beach, across the street from the Wonderland T stop directly. Beach is free access.
Different time: Looking at July19, 1pm - whenever we wanna hit Good Times (arcade just north of revere)
Plans: Raw sunburned fun,grub all over the place, and of course roll around in the sand until we've buried ourselves.
Possible games include: arrangements from Ehrgeiz-esq beach games, amongst others events, such as watermelon slicing rituals (not complete with a pentagon and candles though).

This is the usual, so this time making it an official NEKO event, others perks and surprises are TBA
Don't forget ice cream money btw, there's a place down the street to snag a treat. Makes for a happy hot day.

Reserve dates are in place.(perhaps July 12, and Aug 16th) We'd rather not take August as many will be enjoying other things, of feeling the after effects of those fun things(ie Otakon,CTcon both in Aug). Besides, the earlier we try for, the better for finding a backup in case we get rained out. July is about as dry as August anyway....some ppl jet off for classes by the end of august, and we'd like to see them before that happens, we don't get a lot of summer up here XD
If curious like a George, check out our galleries at www.nekobell.org, my gallery, and perhaps mesoian's gal for past meets, 2006,2007.

Ironically, Ursula does *not* like water. It's not because of the fabric (it's swimsuit fabric which is fine) it's because of the massive amounts of batting in the dress. If people want a beach shoot, I'll bring it; but otherwise, I'm doing something *much* simpler.

And in the end, there's nothing wrong with that.

I'm in. Don't know what I'll be doing yet though. If it's anything like two years ago, it should be fun.

We def. should do a beach shoot, but I'm not sure if we should do it as part of this. . . I almost feel we should organize it as a separate thing with just the people involved in the shoot rather than as a part of a larger gathering, espeiclally since there's so much makeup and stuff involved for you I'd want you to be able to enjoy the gathering and not have to be dealing with an obnoixious costume. . . and with a smaller group, we can arrange to have people there specifically to help you with your costume. But if you're up for it. . .

yeah, bring the ursula! wearing swimsuit underneath can serve its purpose well enough (besides, changing areas down the way)
we can park right there, and perhaps bring some items to walk on out to the sand:rolls of spare crap-fabric...I know I gots some yards of vinyl....cardboard and fancy footwork to constantly tablet your path out to the ocean of sand ^^ ok, more on that concept later.

Count me in. No idea what I'm going to wear though. I'll have to think of something simple.

Not sure if Ariel will be done yet, but I also agree we should do a private shoot for that group. (BTW, Shiva, are we still short a sister?) E-Bishi is really pushing me to bring Aeris back 'cause he wants to make a Cloud suit. I don't know. I want to do something new, but it would certainly be easier to go back to something I already have.

If your friend is def a go for Adella, than yes, we need one more - the pink one - to finish the group for CTCon/private beach shoot.

I know - I'm really not sure what to wear this year, since I've done Rinoa a bunch of times. . . maybe do Tifa? Chibi? Aquata if she's finished? I don't think I'll really decide until its close - see what other people are doing.
