Candy Hearts Cosplay Rainout! Aah!

Well, for one, the webiste will be updated shortly with pictures.

Oh god, that sucked so bad! Why did it have to rain?

Oh well, everyone had a great time anyway. Everyone? Give opinions! Comments? Questions? Ideas for next time? We're looking at doing the next one late Febuary, and I have a GREAT plan. ^.~ We won't be bothered, rain or shine. ::Evil grin::

Great costumes, everyone! You all were so much fun to hang out with.



Who is interested in coming to another? I already had a bunch of people seem interested, as well as about 20 more people who wanted to come, but had work... I think we could do it, and make it better! If you have any BIG complaints, private message me or e-mail me.


Thanks, guys. It really meant so much to me that you showed up.

I'd be there, rain or shine! ^^ I'll bring one of my costumes next time, instead of being generic Hot Topic girl. It was really nice to meet everyone!

It kind of sucked that we got rained out but I still had fun I hope to see you all again....hopefully at Itzacon.....Ushicon....A-Kon....or perhaps even Animefest....or Onicon....whatever comes first

~_~ My sister, boyfriend and I got there a few minutes before 11:00 buy the time we got up to the hill to see if we could spot any other cosplayers we were drenched. *Cries* I really wanted to go to check to see if any one was in garden but my boyfriend got super pissed off about being all wet and wanted to leave. We did talk to 2 other girls (one had green bangs) on the way to the car, they asked us if we knew where everyone was so we pointed them towards the garden hopefully they found you all. *Sigh* well I defiantly plan on going to your next one, Iím sorry I couldnít meet you this time ~_~

How many people showed up??

The next one is going to be in-doors. We're looking into renting something out maybe inside of the Forbidden Gardens, or we may rent out that Tea House inside of the Japanese Gardens.. ^_^

I promise, next time there will be NO FOUL UPS!


I'm so sorry that you didn't find us, Lilly. I feel horrible, but he had to move pronto. Or everyone really would have had to call off the picnic. Next one, we'll make sure everything is CLEARLY LABELED.


Man, I'm so proud of you guys. Despite it all, we had a blast.

The next one isn't for some three months....new venue will be announced by the end of November.


Sorry about your costume, Yuna. It's only dirt!

My Kuja costume got some on it, but I ended up saving it. No problem. Just some scrubbing.

And by the way, the numbers including all the people unregged that came were around 54. Only about 10 people who regged did not come.

It was pretty good. Next time will be even bigger!

Eek! I could have a Kunimitsu outfit done by then... 'cause you know, she just BELONGS in a Japanese garden. Can't go wrong with a ninja chick, yo.

Ideally I would have Yoshimitsu (Soul Calibur 1 version) done by then, but there's no way in hell I could pull that off without some serious... bodily contortion... or something. Hmm.
