My friend that some know as Sailor Texas is planning a Cosplay in Public event.
I’ve always wanted to have a ‘cosplay day’ where a big bunch of cosplayers just show up at a place and run around being nerds. Anyone and everyone is invited!
NEW General plan of action: We meed at the Wizard’s Wagon in the Delmar Loop, at noon. From there, we can all go to lunch together or people can split up into smaller groups, whatever we feel like depending on how many show up. Meet back up again (and for the first time with those who slept in!) at 1 for ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s.
We decided the Zoo was not ideal as they now have a ‘no cosplay’ policy. I hope the Loop will be a centralized enough location that people won’t have any difficulty finding.
Cosplay is not required, but encouraged. If you won’t be wearing a costume, please try to wear something nerdy so you’ll be easily identifiable as ‘one of us’. This will be rain or shine, so be prepared for that when selecting your outfit for the day. Don’t ruin your cosplay, don’t pass out from heatstroke. Please.
PLEASE do not cause any problems for anyone working there. Remember we will be the ‘ambassadors of anime’ and this is the perfect opportunity to remind anyone we meet that we are just people in costume and not troublemakers. Also, as we will be out in public, please keep your costumes family friendly. Please don’t wear any costumes that could be considered ‘skimpy’ and keep anything with a mask that obscures your face off when not posing for pictures. And for the love of god/Japan/anime/Thor/whatever, PLEASE DON’T BRING ANY WEAPONS! We know they’re fake, but they have no place being out among the normies. Leave the weapon and weapon-like props at home!
Feel free to come and meet up with us. Again, don’t pick out a cosplay that will kill you from heatstroke. Hope to see people on Friday.
