QCA Iowa/Illinois Group?

Hi. I'm a realativly new cosplayer and am looking for a potential group or even starting a new one. The basis of our group is in the Quad City Area in East Iowa/Western Illinois and would be great for anyone in the surrounding areas of the QCA. A group might be tough with the new school year around everyone has been moving but I'm bored and willing to try it! Though I still want to have a group where we can get together (be in public for a photoshoot or picnic or a trip around a mall) and have fun. So far, I have only one other person but I know your out there!

The conventions I have been to are: Anime-Iowa and Anime-Zing.
I'm planning to attend Anime-Zing in 2014 and maybe even Anime-Zap (if I can find someone to go with).
Thus far we have only gone into cosplays from Black Butler and a couple of other anime's, however, we are not at all limited to these. Games and comics are welcome too! The more the merrier!
(I'm acutally planning on a game cosplay for next year and an Alice in Wonderland cosplay too).

Please post or PM me if your interested!

Welcome! I'm actually already part of a strictly One Piece group at the moment and live more near Chicago so I can't really help you there, but I'm planning on going to Anime Zap for the Saturday at least lol

Hehe, it seems every cosplayer I've met here come from the Chicago or Minneapolis area which makes things compilcated when I really just want cosplaying friends and to come up with a skit. I want to say I'll see you at anime-Zap but with the way my car has been going...probally not. Hopefully I'll get it fixed and hit up a bunch of conventions next year...

D'aww...maybe eventually I'll take a road trip up to Chicago for a con and visit you guys xP.
There's so many convention's I want to go to but can't get to right now. For now though, I'll just hit up the local ones and see if I find people...

Anime-Zap!

I'm hopeing to go, but I can't go unless I bring my sister. We haven't even figured out if we'll be able to go yet (with school and everything...) Need to start planning (but I guess still have till October...) Dx We'll be going as character from the same anime (I hope) if we do...
Can't wait to see some fellow cosplayers :P

I am from the Bettendorf, though I usually end up going to the Minneapolis conventions because of the lack of cosplay people over here.

Hello! I currently attend Western Illinois Uni here in Macomb, IL, but I live in Peoria, IL when on school breaks.

I've gone to Anime Zap! almost every year and it's been growing up in these last 2 years and definitely worth it to come. I've only been to Anime Zing in 2012 but it'd be worth it to go again, especially if there were others my tiny group knew.

Sounds like fun. I'm going to Anime-Zap this year, my freinds are worried about the weather. Since we only live an hour out, we're going to try and make it anyways. Can't wait. First winter con.

Minneapolis is quote a drive, but it sounds like it would also be fun. In the next couple of years I want to spread out of the Midwest and visit conventions in New York, Florida and LA...Minneapolis sounds like a fun starting place though. First Bettendorf cosplayer! Fianlly someone nearby. I'm in Bettendorf like every other day xD...

Wow! A Bettendorf cosplayer! So close! I'm in Bettendorf just about every other day xD
Minneapolis sounds like fun! Maybe I'll plan on going there next year too. Along with Michigan.

I live in Illinois too! I plan on going to Anime-ZAP! again this year. (I was the small Kagamine Len running about last year if you went.)
I was also at Anime-Iowa as Kagamine Len, and SP!CE Kagamine Len. Did I see you there by chance??

I cosplay as Kagamine Len (Default, MATRYOSHKA, SP!CE), Ib, and Ciel from episode 3 of Kuroshitsuji. c:
