Is this the first year that cosplay is going to be part of the Lunar Festival? I've performed music in the festival twice now, but never noticed any cosplay things going on.

I do apologize, apparently facebook changed the settings from a Public Event to a Friends event, I changed it back. If it is giving any issues, let me know as soon as possible.

This is actually the second year cosplay is at the event, last year we held a Cosplay Fashion show and a gathering. We had around 75 cosplayers attend, with many anime fans who don't cosplay there for support, which was very good for its first year. This year we have greatly expanded events and we are also letting people know about it much earlier.

The link's working just fine now. Thanks!

If I'm not performing elsewhere at the festival, I might try to drop by.

Hey guys. I'm getting short videos together of cosplayers (individuals and small groups) thanking troops overseas for their service so i can put them all together into like a movie thing and then send them to troops overseas. I'll be bringing my camera to this, so if you would like to be a part of this project, please let me know either here or at the event.

You don't have to be in cosplay if you want to participate. Anyone is welcome to approach me if you want to be in the video.

More info will be posted as stuff gets updated.

We already have more interested people who are planning to go to this event than last year, and we still have two months to go. Things are looking great!

I'll be sure to attend this as Rorschach from the Watchmen. I'll see if I can convince any friends to join in on the fun.

Given how close this is now, have some of those TBA things in the event description been nailed down?
