Since the last 2 years have really just been superb, we'd like to introduce another to the stack.:angel:
Same place: Revere beach, across the street from the Wonderland T stop directly. Beach is free access.
Different time: Looking at July19, 1pm - whenever we wanna hit Good Times (arcade just north of revere)
Plans: Raw sunburned fun,grub all over the place, and of course roll around in the sand until we've buried ourselves.
Possible games include: arrangements from Ehrgeiz-esq beach games, amongst others events, such as watermelon slicing rituals (not complete with a pentagon and candles though).

This is the usual, so this time making it an official NEKO event, others perks and surprises are TBA :toothy:
Don't forget ice cream money btw, there's a place down the street to snag a treat. Makes for a happy hot day.

Reserve dates are in place.(perhaps July 12, and Aug 16th) We'd rather not take August as many will be enjoying other things, of feeling the after effects of those fun things(ie Otakon,CTcon both in Aug). Besides, the earlier we try for, the better for finding a backup in case we get rained out. July is about as dry as August anyway....some ppl jet off for classes by the end of august, and we'd like to see them before that happens, we don't get a lot of summer up here XD
If curious like a George, check out our galleries at [url]www.nekobell.org[/url], my gallery, and perhaps mesoian's gal for past meets, 2006,2007.

I'm definetly in...probly gonna go as Ariel (mermaid ver.) from "The Little Mermaid" :thumbsup: and if not then my Temari swimsuit XD

Yay beach gathering! I'm in! :) I'll bring Aquata if she's done or Rinoa. . .we'll see.

Ironically, Ursula does *not* like water. It's not because of the fabric (it's swimsuit fabric which is fine) it's because of the massive amounts of batting in the dress. If people want a beach shoot, I'll bring it; but otherwise, I'm doing something *much* simpler.

#5 Mesoian on 10 years ago

And in the end, there's nothing wrong with that.

I'm in. Don't know what I'll be doing yet though. If it's anything like two years ago, it should be fun.

We def. should do a beach shoot, but I'm not sure if we should do it as part of this. . . I almost feel we should organize it as a separate thing with just the people involved in the shoot rather than as a part of a larger gathering, espeiclally since there's so much makeup and stuff involved for you I'd want you to be able to enjoy the gathering and not have to be dealing with an obnoixious costume. . . and with a smaller group, we can arrange to have people there specifically to help you with your costume. But if you're up for it. . .

#7 Crystal Clover on 10 years ago

I'm definatly in!! I should have Arista done completely by then. If not, her, Ashe with a new top or something!

#8 sephygoth on 10 years ago

yeah, bring the ursula! wearing swimsuit underneath can serve its purpose well enough (besides, changing areas down the way)
we can park right there, and perhaps bring some items to walk on out to the sand:rolls of spare crap-fabric...I know I gots some yards of vinyl....cardboard and fancy footwork to constantly tablet your path out to the ocean of sand ^^ ok, more on that concept later.

#9 stardust462 on 10 years ago

Count me in. No idea what I'm going to wear though. I'll have to think of something simple.

#10 Girl_Shuichi on 10 years ago

I'm Deff in! I love this so much and I never get to go to the beach much. I have NO idea who I'll be, deff not a boy though. I want to do something new but if it comes down to it I can bring Haruko again.

#11 Dymatrex on 10 years ago

You guys know I'm in and will bust my butt to be there.

#12 zootsgirl15 on 10 years ago

If work allows me to take the day off Im so in
I made Haruhi Fujiokas beach dress just for this XD

#13 Gale on 10 years ago

Not sure if Ariel will be done yet, but I also agree we should do a private shoot for that group. (BTW, Shiva, are we still short a sister?) E-Bishi is really pushing me to bring Aeris back 'cause he wants to make a Cloud suit. I don't know. I want to do something new, but it would certainly be easier to go back to something I already have.

If your friend is def a go for Adella, than yes, we need one more - the pink one - to finish the group for CTCon/private beach shoot.

I know - I'm really not sure what to wear this year, since I've done Rinoa a bunch of times. . . maybe do Tifa? Chibi? Aquata if she's finished? I don't think I'll really decide until its close - see what other people are doing.

#15 zootsgirl15 on 10 years ago

Im sensing alot of people may do a little mermaid theme... which kinda tempts me to bring my Vanessa(human Ursula) cosplay. I havent worn it yet so it could be fun :)
