Hey as long as you and your parents are cool with it. And like your parents can meet us as well if they like. I Know Dan was interested, and that guy that just joined. But there are plenty more out there, just not on CNZ.

This is normally the point where you make a post with the details, and then change the first post to details of the meet up. I will make an event on facebook to see if we can get more people interested.

You know, its cool how two teenage girls can go out to meet up with a guy they've never met who's age is the reverse of their own digits. 14, 41. Its all the same right? Practically no difference. Its not creepy, or odd, or anything to be concerned about whatsoever.

Oh. Wait.

(NB: This isn't aimed at you, Highlander. I think you're a bit weird, but you've proven yourself harmless. Its the principle of the thing that I am objecting to here.)

Sorry for replying really late to this post. >.<
Really hectic schedule with work last week so yeah...
Anyways, I have days off set (27th and 28th) for the weekend next week, not too sure with Ouji as he's waiting for a job confirmation and we can set the days off for him.
Would love to set out to CHCH again. We've got our car, but we're not that really keen to drive far yet. Not too sure if we are to stay really long as we will be heading back to Timaru on the same day or the next day (as per bus sched) (unless if there's someone who will let us stay for the night? *wink* *wink* Razz )
As per bus schedule, we will be arriving at 1:45pm in CHCH on the 27th - we might plan to get an accommodation - so we're leaving on the next day.
I would really want to push this through to meet with you guys!

Ok. Cool. So there's a date. A time etc, but I just want to.check who is coming. Plze either PM us or post on this thread. Also, just for safety (sawry, but you never know sad) and avoidence (avoidance?) of awkwardness, it.would be best if people made a tiny bit of effort to come... Anyway. I'm just a tiny bit curious, will it just be a meet and greet sort of thing, or actual sewing andstuff?

sorry if this post is a bit... 'weird', I'm

Gee thanks Greg. (Hey how are you still so young?). I think the kids will be outnumbered. The parents are invited. I'm not that stupid. But if anyone ever wants anything to happen in ChCh ever again, then it has to start somewhere. Noting this is a a public cafe/fabric shop, so pretty safe. I have just heard people talk for ages, and I get impatient with all talk, no action. Shiro is the first person in three years to make any effort to actually do something cosplay related outside of Geddon/SANCON. Really our time/effort/imagination is the only limit.

I was thinking just meet and greet, but if you guys want to talk about the practicalities of cosplay I can bring some stuff along. Up to you. Don't expect too much out of a first meeting.

Oujihime, if you are arriving by bus 1:45pm Saturday the get the bus to let you off at church corner, as that is where the make cafe is. As for putting you/both of you for a night, normally not a problem, but my pull out bed is broken, so unless I can get it fixed real quick!

I have created a FB page, just to help spread the word. https://www.facebook.com/events/542162702510480/
I hope you don't mind Shiro, but I put your name on it. It will sound better than my name on it, trust me. Besides you asked for, and organised it!

Thanks for being understanding. We might just be doing a meet and greet and try sewing another time...
I checked out the page and I'm ok with everything (My name, people invited). I'm going to keep an eye on it but I won't be adding myself for obvious reasons. Thanks though for trying to get the word out. I'm not hoping for a gigantic event for just the first time and I saw that the cafe is quite small but I guess it would be great to reawaken some cosplayers who want something to do.

~Shiro :)

*also*
Since there seems to be more people intrested/coming, Shiro and I are looking forward to this!! (Thanks to those who look out for us though ^.~ we appreciate it both!) and also thanks for those who contributed to planning this!!
~Kuro

I am enjoying the addition of the sick burn. Your implication is entirely wrong though, I haven't met with cosplayers outside the old guard in ages.

You know, because I have a working knowledge of what is and isn't generally acceptable in our society, and choose to abide by it.

Not sure what I was suppose to have implied there? I just seem to have meet you years ago, and I didn't think you where that young back then. Of course all the years just blend into one after a while so I could be wrong.

In the mean time people, we have 7 people going so far, only 2 under 21.

I would have been 18, so I wasn't that young.

If the implication was indeed unintended, fair enough, my apologies for lashing out.

Haha, I guess not, words like young and old are all relative. When I think about how long I have been doing something I tend to either think it seems like ages and add a year on, or after a long time I think it can't be that long and take a year off. My first Auckgeddon was 2009, so that must be right.

But thanks for the apology. :)

Urk.
Well, this is really awkward.
Turns out Shiro and I both have really important (and by really I mean Really with a capital R) stuff on at around the time of the meet-up. Welp. Wilt. Wither. Melts. Sorry, just excuse us. But have fun anyway! (so cheesy >_<)
~Kuro
Doesn't mean it's cancelled, just that it's out of our hands.
