ATTN: Boston Area cosplayers!!!!!

Okay, so the photographer decided to wait until today to tell me, but the photoshoot looks like it's going to be NEXT Saturday (March 15, not March 8) so please, if you can still come, we would really appreciate it!!!

Updated time/date below:

The Boston Globe is doing an article on the theatrical release of Cowboy Bebop AND COSPLAY! Yes, that's right! And having Cosplayers as an integral part of the story, they need PHOTOS! Unfortunately, they can only use photos they themselves take, Sooooo, we've (the author and myself) set up a photoshoot for them, which is tentatively planned for next Saturday (March 15 03) in Harvard Square around noon. This time and date is NOT set in stone yet, as the photographer is being a little slow on replying, but it looks like this will be the final schedule:

March 15, 2003:
12:00noon - All cosplayers have gathered in Harvard Square, outside of Tokyo Kid (located in the Garage building, less than a block away from the 'T' stop *redline*). Plan to be there around 11:45, just in case.
The photographer will be taking pictures of everyone in the store and outside, and possibly a few blocks away in a nearby park area. Come IN COSTUME 'cause there's really no place adequate to change, sorry.

*Directions: to Tokyo Kid via the 'T' - park at Alewife station (off of Rt 2 towards Cambridge I believe, which is off of interstate 95), which is CHEAP at 4.50 for 24 hours and take the train 3 stops to Harvard Square. Get off the train, follow the ramp up nd through the turnstiles. To your left is an escalator, take it up, then the second one up and you're in Harvard Square. Follow the block foreward and to the left (so the opening to the station is behind you) and walk until you see a sign outside a building that has 'Tokyo Kid' listed as one of the stores (it will also have Chibi Toys listed, I believe). Go inside, take the escalator and at the top of it to your right is Tokyo Kid! Yay!*

What they are looking for:
Preferrably Cowboy Bebop costumes, but any costumes will do. Some members of the NEG will be there (New England Garrison of the 501st Legion of Stormtroopers, a Star Wars Imperial costume troupe) so anything in the range of fandom is cool, but Anime preferred.

If you have ANY questions, sent them to me, or IM me. I will keep this thread updated if there are ANY changes to the schedule.

I might be able to attend because I am a short walk from Harvard Square, It all depends though because I would really like to bring my Edea costume but I am not sure if it will be done by then. I'll reply as soon as possible.

Omygoshes, I LIVE there! Like, right on the river so 2 minutes walk from the garage! I guess that makes us like neighbors, gothic lulu! Wouldn't it be strange if we had passed each other on the street before? Too bad I don't have any of my costumes with me. *cries* Anybody want to lend me one? ^^; Why didn't he tell me? I got emails from him before and I sent his emails to the anime society. =P

oh, and one more thing -- I'm pretty sure there's a bathroom on the first floor of the Garage. I can go look on my way back from class tomorrow if somebody really wants to know for sure.

The bathroom in the Garage building is downstairs, under the ATM, but it's VERY small and quite crampped, not a good place to change.
