New England cosplay picnic? Combo-deal thread

No thread started yet, Why not:
Another yr in Boston, another reason to get out that there warm weather gear. I think this would be like year 7 of local picnic jaz.
ok:
May 22 noonish? @ Stanley park Westfield, MA (just off I-90, which connects 5 miles away with I-91). Rain = choices of like 24th or 29/30( memorial day weekend) Stanley has a sports field section, and a seperate fancy section, with a picnic area on the side,monument and garden section, then walkboard and pond area. I noted later in thread:

Pics in later posts
It's been years since I've been there, but now that so many peeps cosplay, I'm sure we'd have a bigger outing. It's a good location for VT,CT,MA, but not as good for Maine,NH, prob not RH.

Main course Boston.....a few 3 weeks before portcon: June 5th so far, but can change.

Last yr(and other years) it was just too hot to hang out in town, if it wasn't downpouring that is. So instead of late june/july, earlier has proved to be bum-kicking-better.

its always something, thats why I'm getting all deviant about the dates. We were talking about that nice fancy shoot last yr in westfield, we will be doing it weather providing.
Boston also, we should get picky on location (a spot besides the commons?) Somehow we had a good one in Harvard Square yrs ago, ther's room there too.

If it's the 22nd, I know there would be like 5 of us who can go since we're like 30mins away.

29th me and tyler are moving, ironicly to around that area...

*fingers crossed for the 22nd*

I wanted to maybe throw out a suggestion for the picnic, would anyone be interested in buying costumes, patterns, fabric, manga, supplies, anime if I brought it??? Kinda like a mini garage sale or we could do like a swap for smaller items??

It would be a huge load off us to take it with us if we're not using it?

Let me know...

sales out of the back of the van? sure why not. I'm a bit limited for cash now, but lets see what happens ^^
22nd is good for me if good for you. You've made the first real lean towards an actual date, so lets call it.
May 22nd, Stanley park. Meet at the memorial section where the monument and garden is, I think a fountain should be up and running to greet ppl at the entrance.(not the sports field section....yet).

Any chosen date for Boston?

well.....we have a sedan, but I could probably borrow a van if we need too...( we really have that much stuff!) I'm just saying i'm not going to want to sell a whole cosplay for 5 bucks or anything.

If this is a defiante date we can make it and bring the motherload! And maybe be able to throw on something to cosplay as

So many ppl are never really sure what date to decide on, it helps to just choose. May 22nd it is then!
2+weeks...and if it rains that weekend, we'll just do the next week, it can't hurt. What's the new area you're settling to? -forgot

Ah, k.
Then choosing a Boston date shouldn't be to tough. June 5th shouldn't be too bad. I've got a few sections highlighted in my brain for using the expensive equipment.

more NEKO gatherings, but close enough. I have a recently revamped sephy myself. PAX east has evidence of that >.> So I'll eventually need some shots.....I'll havta finish the new stuff and get it ready, but sure your on ^^

until then, Stanley park is just off I-90, which quickly connects to I-91 (in 5 miles?)
