Toronto Cosplay Picnic! (2013)

Hey guys!

So as you might of already heard, the original pair who ran this event are no longer doing it. As someone who has attended this event a few times, I couldn't stand the thought of not having the annual picnic happen, so, my friend lupinibean and I have volunteered ourselves to host the event!

As of right now we are aiming for the picnic to take place at Centre Island on Saturday, June 29th, 2013, with a raindate of Sunday, June 30th, 2013.

We've also created a Facebook event page.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to post here or PM me. (:

---

PLEASE NOTE:

Just so everyone's clear, the picnic will NOT be moved to Sunday. The weather looks decent, and no one seems to mind if it does rain, so it's still being held on Saturday!

Nice thing is we won't be competing with the Dragon Boat crowds. I can make this dates.


Probably bring Watashi.

Is there any phtotogs coming to this as I'm still lacking outdoor shoots.

@Miliyah: That's great! I hope to see you guys there!

@Ani_BEE: Thank God, lol. Those crowds are horrendous to say the least. xD I'm glad you can make it! We have quite the guest list going, I'm sure at least one person going will be a photographer. Hopefully.

I just heard of this event today for the first time... man have I been missing out!

If I may, I'll definitely come to this with my Squall, and I'll bring the same group that attended A/N with me. I don't have a Facebook anymore but you can count us in! I just hope it doesn't decrease in size at all compared to last year, a video I saw of it looked too fun ^^.

Question: Do we bring our weapons/props for this? Like my wooden gunblade for example?

The price is just for the farry one way to get to the island, the return is included. I think it's $5 for students and it was $8 for adults last year. I took the water taxi last year for $8. It to the right of the ferry docks.

http://www.toronto.ca/parks/island/ferry-schedule.htm


You can but please transport them in a bag or wrapped in cloth before the island. The rules applies for street rules as to brandish any weapons in public or you may get arrested.


I will try to make more sushi again this year to share. if not it will be candies/cookies to match my character.

We tried to attend last year, but the dragonboat line-up to get on the ferry was just too long so we ended up rage quitting. (We only found out later that there were machines where you could get ticket from apparently. The line was too intimidating to try and get near the front to see)
Hopefully we can attend this year! I just need to figure out which cosplay I'm gonna be in... I might melt as Kirito... xD

So it just occurred to me to check if other stuff would be going on, on the island, the weekend of the picnic. Turns out it's the tail end of pride week. I may be in costume all weekend. LOL
