Boston Cosplay Beach Gathering 2009

Since it's summer out again, and the past few years we have had much fun going to the beach let's do it again!

I suggest August 8, in keeping with most previous years when Otakon was in July like it is this year... In fact this date dosen't interfere with any of the area summer cons. ^^

Are people still wanting Revere Beach or should we maybe pick a new less polluted beach so that we might actually have a chance of being able to swim? Ideas?

Stuff that's Gonna Stay the Same
Fun in the sun & silly antics
Cosplay beach gear highly encouraged not madatory
Yummy ice-cream from somewhere around (don't forget ice-cream monnies )
Pot-luck style on the beach (maybe gettin a grill going finally? if people are up for it)
~ ★ Starlightslk.com ★ ~

Probable Con Schedule: Katsu, PAX East, Dragon*con, Bakuretsucon...always subject to change

Upcoming Cosplays: Mami(Madoka Magica), Morrigan(Darkstalkers)var, a Secret, &...?

I like Nantasket and White Horse.
Nantasket would be paticularly nice considering there's tons of stuff to do around.
Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious.

It's possible, but people may have to get a bus from Quincy or Greenbush.

I believe I'm not doing anything August 8. That date sounds good for me.
Check out the Animecons.com podcast, for all your anime convention needs.

I don't know how it works from the Greenbush line, but in order to get to Nantasket Beach from Quincy, one must take a bus to Hingham, and then catch a shuttle bus that runs something close to every hour for only a certain portion of the day. So miss the bus = sleep on the beach.

OOh i didnt know the greenbush line went to nantasket. Theres a greenbush line walking distance from my house. I've never been on it since its a commuter line and generally more expensive and run less often than the subway. I usually end up taking the bus into quincy and catching the train there.

xD I may go if it's at Nantasket, since that's just around the corner from my studio.

I probably won't be able to make it. I think I might be moving that day or unpacking or settling in or some other aspect of the moving process.

I hope everyone has fun

Sounds like jolly good fun!
Given I don't have beach cosplay attire. Which makes me wish I'd done a bathing suit version of Aeris or something.
Maybe I'll ghetto something.
A bathing suit Kamikirimusi from Soul Calibur IV, perhaps?
Depending on the date, I'd love to attend!
Nantasket doesn't seem unmanageable. I can find my way there.

I don't know if I'd be able to make it, as that's the weekend following Connecticon. We may be having a staff party the same day. I'll have a better idea later on, though.

In terms of costumes, I'd probably just bring Misa again, unless I come up with something else between now and then. Aeris's bracelets are suffering from their many trips to the beach and I'd rather not ruin them farther =/
