Coming in costume is highly suggested, we will be taking pictures for the newsletter!

Pocky club will be meeting in the park at 12:00 if you'd like to join us before the meeting at 2. I will be giving free glomp lessons as I prepare my piece for the newsletter.

Yes!  After some talking and slight begging, I found someone to take my shift on Sunday so I am guaranteed to come up.
Chances are this will be the last time I'll see you guys for awhile.

I may stop in for a bit, if only to help with the organization of the camping trip.  I'm not likely to stick around for the whole three hours though, as I'm not staff or anything.  Would it be better to show up at the beginning or the end?

That's the part where you will get to see Tom dress up in a bear suit, put a mask of himself on over it, and drop some cardboard and breakdance.

I bought it for a Halloween party last year online, I really liked the first season of bleach I kinda got a little distracted though when every character got a side story, endured though the soul society part was nicely rewarded by the wrap up to save Rukia but then it just sort of lost the spark for me, I get flack from some of my friends though for not keeping up on the fansubs like they do.

i am! thx for saying that <3 *big glomp* :3

@melchizedek ok... yeah thier are a few place that i have glanced at but thats it... do u remember how much u payed for it cause the ones i was looking at (ones not on eBay) i was looking at 100+ after shipping X_X

edit: after a quick look around a place i book marked and eBay. about $87 for regular ichigo, eBay about $100 (shipping is expansive on eBay)
bankai $170 (moon costumes $5 shipping) bay $200 (eBay 50 for shipping for either one)

plus i hate the regular ichigo's sword seems too thin. i wish we could use live steal...i like the look better. not so thin =\

although a wild idea came to me just now i could buy the live steal and model a wooden after it :P or something like that cause i am not that great at creating things with my hands >.> plus the con is coming upon us ^.^;
Title: Re: 2007 July 15th General Meeting
Post by: melchizedek on July 21, 2007, 01:07:59 pm
you could just get a black wooden sword.  Though I did hear something about ichigo's sword when I went to Excalibur.

80s sounds about right though, when I got my shinigami costume I remember it being expensive because bleach had just come out in japan and so they could auction them off with lots of bidders.

a hint though would be to alter your search a few times, sometimes overseas sellers don't list stuff too well. 

go like bleach , ichigo, bankai, shinigami just use various words that might not be obvious.  Captian aizen pulls up a couple results too :)

That being said, if you order something from china expect it to take over a month to come.  If you order it in august it might not be making it.
