Well then you can cosplay inside? You never know, might rain that day. I think most people would love to cosplay in the sun, it's not exactly unbearable :)

I think we should either have cosplay day in Spring or Autumn, when it's not too hot or cold (but with NZ weather, that doesn't quite work ...).

Awesome idea ^^

I reckon we should all take a photo on the day, whether we're away on holiday, at home with family, out with friends or at an organised event etc, it'd be a way to all celebrate together!

How about I make a group for it on dA, where people's cosplays for Cosplay Day can be submitted, maybe even with competitions! nyahaha

Mm. It sounds like a good idea.
But I feel that contacting newspapers and radio stations would be a bit much.
It sounds like an invite for others to ridicule and exploit our community. We would probably get more trolls and unwanted attention on the forums, etc.

What do I know though?

Point. Most of the people you see dressing up for sevens etc are pretty gaudy.

I agree with Tammy. Past experience = Some people are so snobby and do not like cosplay at all. I get sick of comments from 'popular' teenagers in town. The ones that dress 'in style', etc. They also diss Lolita and it annoys me (not that they are dissing Lolita, but that they are voicing their opinions to us directly and in a very rude way).

But everyone one knows about rugby, so you can't really compare it to that.

(sorry, just jumping in)

I think the 2nd weekend of January sounds great!
Cause everyones already made the picnic an annual event. (and now
they're thinking about having a ball instead of the picnic for
Wellington)

If we make it the 2nd weekend then we could celebrate it with a picnic/ball or whatever!

You're very welcome to jump in! ^_^
& that's a great idea, everyone could gather together to celebrate it if they like with a picnic or something, or celebrate in their own way. As long as we're celebrating cosplay, I'm sure it'll be a fun day! nyahaha

FYI: Auckland and Wellington Cosplay Picnics were on 26th January this year, and will probably be about the same next year. Why not make it the day of the picnics?

Yeah we could do that, save everyone making 2 cosplays. As much as I'd love to do that, I think a lot of people out there wouldn't have the time & money for both. So how about...January 20th? Very Happy

Hehe yeah I'm just trying to think of a date that would be easy to remember ^^ Everyone should just suggest a number, & the most popular date wins! Keeping in the range of 'middle of Januaryish' if people wanna colab it with the cosplay picnic :)

Yeah I was thinking that, hopefully because it's the holidays, most people could celebrate it that day every year & the date wont matter, I think if it's the 'X weekend of Jan' every year people will forget.
The first year we celebrate it, next year, probably should be on a weekend though, so more people will celebrate it & more likely to continue celebrating it, ya know? ^^

@Pura: true that. For which reason I think that if we're gunna have it as a set date, it shouldn't be January. Is there anything wrong with March? Halfway between the picnics and welly/chchgeddon.

D.A.D is just for this year because Berry's going away (or something xD), and CHCHgeddon is in April.

March is cool, but it would be during school term, so it could be on a school day ... (And I have a uniform school :/ ... But that didn't stop two girls in my maths class wearing anime suits today xD. My maths teacher was SO mad xDDD).

Haha awesome. No, Chchgeddon is at the end of March, check out www.pulpexpo.com. I also think we should stick to the summer holiday...makes it easily for everyone considering the spare time needed ^^

How bout we make a poll asking what month people think it should be in? :3 I kinda like the idea of May, actually - but yes. This is what a poll would solve. XD

I'm tempted to say the first full moon of the month. Razz Apparently that's Jan 11th for 2009.

That said while I was digging that info out apparently there's a solar eclipse on 26-Jan-09, unfortunately it's not visible from NZ. sad

Edit: apparently here's a list of the other full moons for 2009. No reason to suggest it I just think full moons are funky. :)
