I'm just coming down to Rosemont for the Saturday of Anime Midwest because it was sort of a last minute thing with my sister and it's a 2 hour drive.
I'll be Merida!
(Maybe a little tan Merida AKA I just got back from Texas where I got sunburned. Hoping it goes down a little more before next weekend.)
I'll be on the lookout for all of you! And if you see me, please say hi! (I'm terrible at making the first move in conversations, especially at cons.) I don't know what my sister will be, either Kurosutchi Mayuri from Bleach, Zelda or Kisuke. Who knows...
I'll see you there!

Awesome, I'll definitely look out for you and say Hi if I see you!
I'm generally kinda bad at randomly going up to people too (mostly because I am usually on the lookout for people from forums, so I ask them if they are from X forum and then they say no... so then I get awkward lol).

I can't wait for Midwest this weekend as the last week has been pretty crazy and awful, lol. Starting tomorrow afternoon though I can finally relax and just enjoy myself and Anime Midwest is happening at the perfect time. Then back to craziness on Monday XD

For cosplay, I'm planning on doing at least 2 (maybe 3) different versions of Luffy from One Piece (Film Z version). Figured I might as well since I have 2 different shirts and shorts anyways, lol. Feel free to say hi if yo see me ^.^

I went to HS in Spfld and some of the people I went to school with still live in the area, but idk if any of them have Cosplay.com accounts.

They *do* play Amtgard in Lincoln Park, though, so if you're into gaming that might be something to look into.

Have you tried I-Con at all? There used to be a handful of cosplayers that would hang out and visit the anime room when I used to be on staff. This year its Sept 13-15 at the Mansion View Inn down town.

I live in the south suburbs of Chicago. I'm desperately looking for some friends right now, and really would like someone to talk to who's as big into anime and cosplay as I am. I mostly do Vocaloid, but am open to just about anything. Message me if your interested I'm kinda shy and awkward though.

I've just joined a couple of Chicago cosplay FB groups so we'll see if they approve my request.
I don't know why my post didn't get in...

Anyhow, sorry for the late response, as is the usual course when such major con is on the horizon (Anime Expo), I essentially when into lock down and worked on the costume foregoing internet with exception of music to work to.

Anywho, it was the sheer size from what I've heard that drove Navy Pier to get involved and escort the attendees off the property with security golf carts which is pretty embarrassing. Judging by the photos, it was HUGE!

Oh the story: http://animechicago.com/reviews/cosp...curity-escort/

Considering it was four hours into the event, it lasted pretty long.

I couldn't find any Chicago cosplay groups on FB and I found that to be kinda odd since Chicago is a large city and even in Boston (where I go to college) there are a few cosplay FB groups and meetups every week and that is a much smaller city I think.
Super late, but if you haven't seen it, there's the General Anime Meetup group. It was created for all other cosplayers by the same people who were in the Hetalia Chicago group. We're kinda quiet, but most everyone is connected to some other group and people to tend to share meetup info.

About that Navy Pier incident, that really surprised me when I heard about it. I planned on going, but stayed home because of the weather. So glad I didn't. :O It's crazy because we did Hetalia Day there last year and even though we took up most of that back area (with the flags and boats), security didn't have a problem or anything. Because of that though, people are planning this year's events in the burbs.

[color="Purple"]Hello all! I am completely new here and new to the world of cosplay! I am also from Illinois! About 45 min to 1 hour away from Mount Prospect, outside of Elgin area. I attended ACen the past two year and just attended my first Wizard World Comic Con this year. I love to meet new people, but I haven't found a lot of people into cosplay around the area. I would love to plan a meet up and possibly a huge photo shoot to get us all acquainted![/CtOLOR]

What are we waiting for? LETS THROW A PARTY !!!!!

I seem a bit late on the run for this.. But hi! None of my friends even like stepping foot in a con/cosplay, and I have been wanting to do a group cosplay for a while. Or just go with a group to one I'm here in Hoffman Estates, and am thinking about going to Anime-Zap. Definitely going to Anime Central and Comic Con Chicago. Never heard of Anime Apocalypse though? (Also, probably going as Ellie from the Last of Us to Anime-Zap if I do go)
