Cosplay here. That sound too good, Donny isn't exactly very pleasent neer the dome. I would advise being very carefull with what you wear. I know from experiance since I live here that if you wear something like a cosplay here you are bound to draw too much atention to yourself.

If you are going to go i would highly recomend getting changed when you get there. I wouldn't chance getting on the bus in cosplay

(sorry i had to edit this. sounded a bit wierd at first)

Same thought here. It'd be nice if it works out okay, but I live in Doncaster too and I've bad experiences at the dome before just in normal clothes. Just be careful guys :3

30 Apr 2010 - 18:2630948
I am certainly gonna try and get there!!!

30 Apr 2010 - 19:3730955
Oh wow, I live in Donny. I'll be there for sure xD

30 Apr 2010 - 19:5630957
i'll definastly be going, but now Im worried about the 'Donny isn't exactly known for it's tollerance' since im planning to take my RedXIII cosplay :c
Is it really that bad?

30 Apr 2010 - 19:5930958
Just a quick sort of off topic question from someone who allways looks rather "weird" (coverd in tattoos andd peircings) are people and places really still not tolerent to looking different these days? or have i just been extrmly lucky with where ive been. (ive lived in leedds/wales/nottingham/guildford and never had trouble. So this sounds kind of scary lol

Just get changed there and changed back before you leave and you'll be okay. It's not physical. It's just if you are wearing something extravogant, you might get a bit of verbal. Most cosplays wont stick out so you will be fine. XD However I do like the idea of a yorkshire meet. I would like to get to know more cosplayer from our region.

Some Doncaster people are closed minded and the Dome is where all the children/teens/ ‘Chavs’ go on a weekend so I’d be careful. I work at the Adsa near there so I have a good impression on what they are like but like Yami said get changed in to cosplay when you’re at the dome. The dome has changing room so it wouldn’t be a problem. I know we sound negative but I really don’t want you guys getting harassed and get discouraged especially since you guys are really good cosplayers.

On the whole a fantastic idea and good luck with it sadly I’ll be at work so I can’t come or else I would go in a heartbeat.

I'm just giving them some advertisement but if you feel there is some concern I will post something on thier group page

I myself will take stuff to change in considering my cosplay will be a rather short gijinka and will need covering up anyway hehe

I'd like to go, but I don't think its worth traveling just for two hours. Maybe if it were longer it'd be more worth it?

02 May 2010 - 00:2931066
Haha! My other passion being Pro Wrestling, I've been to a number of 1PW shows at The Dome, it really is chav central.

But I did wear a few wrestling cosplays to the shows, didn't get any trouble.

02 May 2010 - 11:2131074
Hmm. Might be there. Depends on what is is happening around that time of year

I think i might be required elsewhere that weekend though D: Typical of my luck that the one weekend i have massively prebooked will be the one this falls on.

Quote Fables:
I'd like to go, but I don't think its worth traveling just for two hours. Maybe if it were longer it'd be more worth it?

I agree with Fables on this. It would be cool for everyone living near Donny (like Scunny and Sheff where its like 30-40mins away ish If it was a full afternoon instead of a couple of hours it would be a better opportunity for people to meet up for longer.

Plus if the majority of people will be changing when they get there due to hecklers that will cut into the time so technically...wouldn't it be less than 2 hours?

If it was an afternoon, I would definitely be there but I can appreciate that some people will be working Saturdays. It's a toughie!!

what you have to realise is this is the first of this event-

they put alot of effort into just getting this event sorted. I ma sure if it goes well and is popular then it will bre made larger and longer

please go onto the facebook group and put forward any concerns you have

Sadly I don't think I'll be going. As soon as I saw the dome mentioned my warning alarm went off. Too many trouble causers hang out in and around the dome for me to feel happy about attending an event there. I'd just worry too much about getting beaten up. As those of us who live in the rougher parts of Doncaster know it doesn't take much to set off the yobbos. ;_;

HI GUY! Thank you for having this form!
Hi, I am in charge of the event!

Thank you for sharing it on your form, I am amazed at the amount who are attending and I really apprisiate it. It has been a lot of phone calls and funding problems and THE DOME was the best I could do with my budget as I am a uni student.

My names Kathrine and I am at Doncaster Uni and I love manga/anime/cosplaying and Nintendo!

I understand you guys consern about venue but you can blame Doncaster college for part of that, exspecting over a thousand pound for a room to hire plus £24 an hour for security.

I live in a bad area surrounded by chav's too and my only suggestion is is to pack your costume in your bag and get changed inside.

You don't go through the front enterance for the event, it's the back enterance that say's conferance (or somthing like that and has a stair case). Once inside the room is locked and privert from the public.

We also have sercurity at provided by The Dome for anyone causing problems. If you see someone messing with equipment or causing trouble, take me to one side and I will deal with the matter.

Also the DOME deals with health and safety matters.

Your all welcome to come an hour early (3pm) if you want and chat to people and buy things from our sellers at the event.

I gave it that time so no one missed out of the competitions.

Anyone wanna bring any music/ A.M.V's or anything for our screen they can do as long as it's not porn (LOL!) Think of the children!

This is a test and I hope to run one again if all goes well.

Thanks for the support guys!

ooh my! i shall be there hopefully..only 20mins away from me.
Not sure what to do cosplay-wise yet..

05 May 2010 - 21:4131267
Might be coming to this - Depends, I have noooo idea how to get there.

05 May 2010 - 22:3931273
Most likely wont make it Its not worth coming down from Hull for a 2 hour con unfortunately its a bit to late see.

Good luck guys!

06 May 2010 - 17:4531323
Oh me and my friends are incredibly tempted by this and it's a perfect excuse to get our Doctor Who cosplays out!

I will agree with others though it probably could do with being a tad longer but anyway for the first time I'm sure it'll all go perfectly.


14 May 2010 - 16:5031928
You can come at 3pm if you'd like as others will be coming too, you'll have an hour to buy things and chat ect before it officially starts. We wanna make sure everyone is here for the contests.

Contest are - Dancing, quiz, cosplay, fan art, raffle 'maybe a singing contest' if we have at least 2 people to judge.

We have a karaoke too!!

Awesome prizes like a one year subscription to NEO magazine!!

You can buy and trade!!

Bring your art and camera's!!

In a war cosplayers would deffinately beat chavs, think of all the glomphing, so no worries there! Will deffinately attend if I can get a friend or two in on the act... This is a perfect excuse to make another cosplay that I can't afford

The Joss Dickie's Karaoke at The Dome
Having looked at some of the replies, there seem to be some reservations about the local 'wildlife'. Just to repeat the general advice on here; take your stuff in a bag and get changed at the venue... but once you do, you'll be in my territory!
Don't worry, I don't bite: I just play karaoke a lot.
I'll be hosting the karaoke competition on the day. I'm told there'll be prizes (or maybe just one prize - not quite sure yet) but the competition won't last long, so get in early and show everyone what you have.
There's never any trouble at my gigs (maybe I've just been lucky) so you can be sure that while you're there, you can relax and enjoy.

Do unto others before they do it unto you... but smile.
