AX Rurouni Kenshin 2010 Gathering

Hello Everyone!!!!!!! It's me, Twinkleprincess, and once again I'm going to host the Rurouni Kenshin gathering. (If you don't recognize me I was the Kaoru in the purple kimono with sakuras on it.)
This year's gathering was very fun. So many funny moments.*giggles* Yes this thread is created super early but the earlier the better since more chances of getting more RK cosplayers. I'm not sure if AX is gonna be at LA next year but if it is let's have it at the same location. The location was hard for some people to find so...Let's play a game and it's to find the other RK Cosplayers. We meet up at location and then we can have some people stay at the location and some go search for other RK cosplayers and bring them back to home base. Should we do that? It would be fun and helpful.
Ok Everyone let's decide a date and time. I like the date of July 4th again since it's a holiday and traditional clothes are nice to wear. Even though we have a long way to go before AX, it's better and easier to plan before time.

Date:July 2,2010

Location: Lindsey Plaza But in the sunnier area

Time: 5:30

I'll be Kenshin, of course.

I wouldn't exactly call it a game of finding other gatherers, but we can definitely do something where we spread the word of the gathering to anyone RK cosplayers we manage to find. I can also print out directions for people that we randomly come across in the hallways. XD

If I'm not mistaken, July 4 is Day 2 next year, so things might get shuffled around in terms of major events and other gatherings that we might want to work around.

I agree with Lindsay Plaza again. I highly doubt that AX will move from the LACC since it's practically impossible to find anything better than an actual convention center (in the same general area, too xD). The date and time can be discussed when we get closer to the convention, so I'd say we have at least 9 or 10 months before we really start cracking down on that XD.

If nothing major happens on the 4th, perhaps we can all go out to watch fireworks together? It would be nice to do so wearing our cosplays, especially since the majority of characters could look traditional enough. XD

Maybe we should do something intense during the gathering as well, like choreographing a fight scene or making a video or whatever we can come up with. XD It would definitely be a whole lot more exciting to do something like that, especially when you start to run out of poses after a half hour XD.

There's my wall of text that probably won't matter for the next year. XD

Dont worry. If I remember correctly, I heard that AX will be in LA for the next couple of years (they signed a contract with them) so no worries about which center we will be at!

If we go crazy and try some fight scenes, I'm not all sure if there will be enough room in that particular area (with the busses going through there and all). I think that if it comes to that, we can shift over to the palm trees next to where we were, if you remember the area. There is more room to spread out there.

Ah well, we've got plenty of time to plan and work this out

Ginger Kenshin signing out! (And going too)

At least the con location is secure.

As for a gathering area, we have Google Maps to help us out! While looking up my next con I found that since a lot of people don't know the area, they're using Google Maps to help them figure out stuff like where to hold gatherings. I think we can use the same concept, except rather than helping us establish a location, it would help us find a location that could be better than the last one.

I don't recall palm trees, but that's why we have Google Maps! By the way, does anyone know the address of the convention?

AX is gonna be July 1-4 so if we do on the 4th we can try doing fireworks but people might go home early so we need to choose a different date. i posted a poll so it would be easier to organize what day it should be held.

I may or may not be available on Days 1 and 4. That's something that really depends on funding, scheduled events, etc., so I peronsally wouldn't hold out for either of those days.

I discourage Day 1, because that's always gonna be the least active day of the whole con and have the least turnout of people. Additionally, people are just starting to arrive, and so we're probably a bit tired. Days 2 and 3 are good days for gathering because it has the highest turnouts of the con, and overall have a higher energy to them. However, because of this, the majority of gatherings will occur on that day. Day 4 has an average turnout, but because the con's energy is going down, the chances of the gathering being outstandingly epic also goes down.

Does anyone have an idea of how their con schedule will go?

By the way, trying to figure all this out right now feels a bit too early, considering that we have an entire year to watch our funds suddenly vanish, our schedules to suddenly become very tight, and overall bring in factors that would derail this gathering very quickly. I suggest focusing on this issue when 2010 comes around and people start getting a more stable insight into how the future will go.
