E.J.B.J.O.C.D INFORMATION THREAD
(Epic Journey to Bring the Joy of Cosplay to Dunedin!)


What is it?

EJBJOCD, apart from being an impossible acronym to remember, is something quite like what the Christchurch and Dunedin cosplay groups did at the start of 2009, meeting halfway at Timaru to spend a weekend having fun, partying and doing what we love most- cosplaying. It was by all accounts an enjoyable time and in this turn of events, the Christchurch group are now travelling down to Dunedin mid-July to spread the love further south! It's expected to be a weekend you\'ll never forget (unless you\'re Angie.)

Sounds like fun. When is it?

EJBJOCD takes place on Friday 10th of July 'til Sunday 12th of July. People in cars, you will be departing Christchurch around 10am on Friday and arriving back around 7pm on Sunday. Those taking the bus, please advise me to when you're going to be arriving in the city so transport can be arranged for you.

I want to come, but how do I get to Dunedin?

Good point. There are several answers to this question, depending on what category you fall under.

a.) Those in Christchurch that signed up for transport before the 6th of June, and were confirmed in one of the two cars.

If you are one of these people, you are going down by car, driven by the wonderful Anne & Highlander;

Riven (driver)
Highlander (driver)
Mandie_chan
Aura
s-in-c
RainbowMoonDust
Marquissa
Kyoushu

(by my calculations, you guys only have eight in the cars? extra space for two people?)

WHERE TO MEET UP

PLACE: meet outside 32 Maxwell Street. This street is behind Riccarton Mall.

TIME: Planning to leave by 9.15AM at the latest, so be there at 8.45AM with all your gears and things.

b.) Those in Christchurch who did not sign up for transport before the 6th of June.

YOU CAN STILL COME. Don\'t rule out coming down for this just because you\'re not in a car! There are a few cosplayers that are planning to bus down on the Naked Bus-- (http://www.nakedbus.co.nz). The fares are very reasonable, and you won't be alone. C: Plus, I'll drive those that arrive and depart by bus to the station so you guys don't have to worry about transport.
The bus that most are taking arrives in Dunedin at 1.40pm on the Friday, and leaves at 2pm on the Sunday- link here!

'Bus Victims'
Firecat70
sakura-petals
Crazy

c.) Those that live in Dunedin.

Why are you asking me this.

Well, okay then. Where are we staying?

We'll be staying in the 'Nineteen Inch Thumbtacks Flat' (sorry Lennon rofl), which is situated in Glenleith, North Dunedin-- conveniently close to Highway 1. At the moment, I'm thinking of driving out to Palmerston or Waikouwaiti to meet the cars coming in to guide them up, because it's a bit hard to find our place the first time. Cost? Nil.

We are down a lane, but since it's a shared drive you guys won't be able to park down it. There is, however, plentiful street parking only like 10m away.

Posers. So, what do I need to bring?

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you have an air mattress or a bedroll, bring it! We have one or two single mattresses at our flat, but not enough for 14+ people.

- clothes for the weekend, pyjamas etc. if you need them (obv.) WARM CLOTHES. YOU\'LL NEED THEM.
- a jacket. a warm one.
- YOUR COSPLAYS, DURR.
- YOURSELF.
- airbed/bedroll/pillow/sleeping bag
- money for drivers/food/impulse buying (not that there IS anywhere to impulse buy in Dunedin.)
- cameras! videocameras!
- a sense of humor.
- TWISTER. DOES ANYONE HAVE TWISTER.

... riiight. Who's all coming, just so I know who to watch out for?

So far, our wonderful expeditionary troupe is composed of;

TEAM CHRISTCHURCH

Riven
Highlander
Mandie_chan
Aura
s-in-c
Marquissa
RainbowMoonDust
Kyoushu
firecat70
sakura-petals

TEAM DUNEDIN

seraphik
ryans-cupcake
Siobhan
IcyRose
Lost_in_Shangri-La
Nox
Victoria + 1
Frangipani
Lady Phantomhive
pucca007 + 5
Snow

TEAM PICTON

Crazy

TEAM OHINGAITI

_Blossominblazingwinds_


Numbers to keep the organizers sane, disregard this?

People disregarded; ryans-cupcake+siobhan, icyrose+_blossominblazingwinds_ (seperate rooms) [4]
People to fit in the lounge; mandie_chan, s-in-c, firecat70, crazy, sakura-petals, kyoushu, marquissa, rainbowmoondust, nox, snow [10]
People to fit in seraphik's room 'THE QUIET PLACE' (rofl); (drivers?) Riven, Highlander, seraphik, aura [4]

UNCONFIRMED; PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU ARE DOING IF YOU ARE LISTED HERE IN REGARDS TO WHERE YOU ARE STAYING!

Try picton?
What if the character you are playing does not have a sense of humor. Although I personaly class deadpan as humor.
And you should have a talk to my mother. We went straight from a funeral over the hill, to a reception on the hill (nice view of the St. Kilda beach), to shopping. I was dragged around DnDn for a good three hours. And no blue top I found for her was the right shade!

Yeah bus slow, cause it keeps stopping. Car fast. Pretty trip though down the coast though.

Yeah, but imagine how many cosplayers there are in picton!. (Or at least will be.)

So how long you been in the quiet and beautiful Picton?

I remember a school history trip in intermediate, where we boated around the sounds to visit the historic places. And there was the 4th form school camp where we boated in and out. Plus a 16th birthday party on a boat, plus the odd private trip. Beats a car though, very long and winding roads!

Anyway I believe this thread was for details not discussion naughty

Sounds bad. Hope youse O.K. Before stiching my head the doctor injected aroung the wound, then poked me and asked if it hurt without waiting for the numbness to set in. When I said yes he injuected a second lot, and I went out like a log. Scared him half to death.
