MCM Expo October 2010: Let's Make Friends!
Hi there~! So I'm cosplaying as Chrona Makenshi from Soul Eater and I'm also in a Soul Eater group but this thought came into my mind: Most cosplay groups consist of people from the same anime.. Why not form a group of random cosplayers from various animes??

And yeah, lots of people have been saying that the expo has become sort of dry and more boring and I agree. I guess seeing the same (yet pricier) merchandise and taking photos of/with cosplayers year after year kind of gets tiring. So why not liven it up a little?

But anyway, the 'group' that I meant isn't like a competition-joining, photoshoot taking group (though that's cool too), but I'm just meaning like, a gathering of people who'll just meet, take photos, perform random anime scenes with others, dance and well yeah, have fun! XD We could meet out on that grassy patch where people usually sit down for a picnic and such (will be arranged later) and yeah, make up games and stuff to cure boredom! ^__^ We could make new friends and enjoy each other's company!

This is usually done in the Expos, random people joining in to have fun and all, but does anyone want to join in on this idea? We could make it better arranged and such~! ^__^

Note: I am NOT some mindless perverted creep that just wants to meet up with random people for disturbing reasons. XD I'm just a teenage girl who loves cosplaying and having fun and likes to liven up the mood at expos and all sorts! ^___^ So please don't take me the wrong way~!

And if you're not on cosplayisland that often but want to join, you can always ask me on facebook about what day it takes place since it hasn't been arranged yet. XD I check my facebook everyday and I'm usually on it too so you can talk to me there too. ^^ Here's the link~!:

The meet-up has been arranged to be on SATURDAY AT 3PM IN FRONT OF THE BLACK STATUE (check this thread a week or so before the expo just in case ^__^)

And by the way, I won't be making a sign (sorry D: ) so I know it's unconvenient but if you're joining in the meetup then please look out for a Chrona standing by the statue at 3pm. If you don't know what the character looks like then this is what I will look like on the day of the expo:

If you're worried that you won't be able to find me or forget details of the meetup then I can give you my number, just ask for my number and I'll PM it to you. ^^

Actually i think this is a good idea, i mean i understand all the going to your group of the same anime/game/manga etc.
But being in a random group is better because you can meet different people that you might not meet in the other groups who might have the same interests as yourself.

I get pretty shy at the expo as im pretty new to everything like that as im the sort to hide in my room all day talking online and i have really bad social problems which going to this kind of thing makes me more confident.

(on the side note soz that it's so long, i didn't mean for it to start looking like an essay)


22 Jun 2010 - 18:2934963
I'm pretty shy too, but I'd love to meet up with a group just for fun!
I think this a great idea and I would definitely join in
I go to the expo not only for the stuff but really to make friends, and I didn't make any at May, I barely got the courage to ask the cookiemonster for a photo D:
But I really want to try and make some this time around

I'm also not a pervy old man or serial killer XD

Awesome! I'll add you guys as friends on my profile so communicating would be easier. ^__^ But yeah, we'll arrange a meeting place when the expo comes near (exchanging numbers would be helpful too, but that depends on your own personal comfort) and we can hang out, have fun, and get to know each other~! (Maybe have a picnic too if you're bringing or having your own lunch there ) Oh, by the way, my name's Kai. ^__^ (oh and about the cookiemonster thing, I ran into him too but it was so crowded and I didn't get a picture either D: )

Here are the ones i got http://fuzcos.deviantart.com/gallery/#London-mcm-expo-2010
I will add you guys too, yes that would be a good idea.
We should defiantly discuss what to do or ways of finding each other.

(Don't worry im not some kind of person pretending to be someone, i can prove it too)


22 Jun 2010 - 21:2334977

Awesome, more people~! ^__^ Oh and since people are showing their photos by deviantart, here's my deviantart name

www.azureserenity.deviantart.com

Just in case you want to chat there or something.

And yeah, we have to plan a time to meet and stuff but first, I think we have to know if anyone is in any other group or not (so we'll know what time they're free). As for me, I'm in a Soul Eater group (cosplaying as Chrona) and we'll be doing photoshoots and stuff, so I'll have to see what time we finish all of that. Anyone else doing something too?

this sounds like a great idea, im up for it


23 Jun 2010 - 14:5235029
I'm definitely up for making new friends. <3
I'll be in my own little group, in October, but I'll still be more than happy to mingle, and meet new people~

... Besides, if I'm taking Pluto (Kuroshitsuji), he'll love the attention. xD

Cool! ^__^ We should arrange a date, like Saturday or Sunday. Well, should we meet on both days or just choose one day to hang out? I'm sure I can hang out, but just not sure about what time. You guys know that grassy patch outside the building where people usually have lunch or picnics (not the slope beside the building)? Yeah, I was thinking that maybe that's a good spot to hang out and/or have a picnic.

Oh by the way, I added you guys so it'll be easy to talk and such, please add me back~! ^__^

Sounds good to me
I don't think I'll be going to any group photoshoots or anything, so any time is fine by me
And I think defiantly Saturday, and maybe Sunday if enough people are interested

Sounds great so far but on both days I have group meets and photoshoots planned ... I'm such a camera wh*re

I think closer to the time of the event that we should check what time would be best for people, because by then people should know what time their other group meets and photoshoots are and what times they are free

Yeah i know where your talking about, luckily im staying at ibis so im right there.

Oh and this will be my second time at the expo, I might have to leave for a little while on the saturday because of the D.Gray-man photoshoot but thats it as no Photoshoot has been organized on the sunday and i don't think everyone goes to the shoot right in the morning (no one did last time)


23 Jun 2010 - 19:5535055
I'm still not sure which day our little group is doing what, LOL, but I know where you mean. :]
We should definitely find out nearer the time, so nothing clashes, and we all get enough time to meet some great people~

We might be staying at the Ibis this year, as well, so that makes getting to and from places so much more easier.

Hey there~! Yeah, so I checked and most of the photoshoots are around noon and the others are all the way at night, so I'll be free around midday and such. ^__^

By the way, do any of you guys use facebook? I was thinking that communicating using facebook is way more convenient but anyway, here's my facebook account if you want to add me or talk and such.

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1498601485

I was also thinking of maybe creating a facebook group for this, but I'm not so sure at the moment.

Ok guys, so for all of you who are coming or interested in coming, please make sure to check this thread a few days or weeks before the October expo since we'll be discussing a meeting place and a time that's best for all of us to meet up. Thank you~! ^__^
