Summer is always convention season, as well as International Cosplay Day in August.
Since not many cosplay groups in Michigan are very active anymore, I thought it would be fun to hold a meet up in Ann Arbor for ICD.
When is this going to be held?
August 27th, from 12:30 PM to 5:00PM.
Where will this be held?
At the Diag in Ann Arbor.
What will we be doing?
We will be having a picnic, then browsing around Ann Arbor (more details below). Since this is a picnic, please try to bring your own blanket to sit on, unless you don't mind sitting on the floor. We will try bringing extra blankets to sit on, so if you can't bring one, don't worry.
There will also be food, but it would help if you could bring a few snacks, or some drinks.
Can I bring my friends?
Of course! Bring anyone that you would think would like to come. The more, the merrier!
Do I have to be in costume?
Since this is a cosplay event, it would be suggested to come in costume. But of course, if your friends don't have a costume, or if it's way too hot, it's understandable! Causal cosplay is totally fine too! We just want to have a fun time.
Are there any regulations on what I can wear?
Please remember, we will be in public. So if you can, refrain from bringing your 12ft scythe, or any kind of weapon that would be mistaken for a real one.
Other things we will be doing at the meet-up:
-A costume contest.
Because what cosplay event is complete without one. There will be prizes, of course.
Photos all around.
-"Name that Character" game.
Let's see how many characters you can name.
-Arcading at Pinball Petes. http://www.pinballpetes.net/
-Going out for Bubble Tea
(at either MoMo's or Bubble Island)
-Going Comic shopping at The Vault of Midnight, if anyone is up for it at the end of the day. http://www.vaultofmidnight.com/store/
