18+ Cosplay Meet Up
« on: December 25, 2012, 04:16:34 pm »
There aren't enough of these, and it's not that I'm being cruel and note allowing minors - I'm just being selective because there are not enough of these. I would really like a change for adult cosplayers to meet up, in the warmer weather, where we can be the adults we are. Crack jokes, and act like the adults we are, without being worried about doing something that could potentially get us in trouble because minors are around.

I am asking for only 18+ because in a lot of the past meet ups I have been at, the maturity levels between cosplayers differs based on generation and age. Though there are some minors who are more mature, in the reality of it all - a lot of adults are not comfortable being adults around minors. We have to watch what we say, how we say it, and what we do. Mostly because of laws that can easily be misconstrued by those outside of situations.


Now that my disclaimer is out of the way, I want to do a cosplay meet up, once the weather has gotten warmer. Probably in April time, or May time. Based around other peoples schedules and the like. It will be a potluck, as are all of my events. Because this makes it easier on everyone to eat. I will take down a list of people interested, and items they may be bringing. As well as suggestions of time of day, and day of the week.

Basically, come in cosplay or casual, and get a chance to talk with others of your own age range. Anyone 18+ is welcome. But understand if you cause a problem during my event, you will be asked to leave - and /not/ return to future events.

Do you have any clue where you may be holding this, provided it happens? I mean people like me near seattle can't just go to places like portland on any randon day..That's VERY far..Even THIS CON is too far for more then one trip a year..I seem to notice the HUGE majority of this con is by people in oregon..So if it's WAY the heck down there, then nope can't go..

I would be interested in this! I recently got into cosplaying and I don't have any cosplay friends so this sounds like fun! :S I live in Portland. Oh and I'm 22 so I am definitely not a minor.

Sailor Jeimi, my group of friends will see about trips up towards the seattle area for a cosplay meet up around the seattle area.

Rika-chan, that's fine. I will do my best to trust people on their ages, but if someone looks just too young to be their age - I will ask to see ID.

If that happens, I would LOVE to go. Even if it's not seattle, but like, close enough, where it's maybe at most an hour away, there's a good chance I can make it. And if you do it on a weekend, that works even better!!

Completely understandable. I always carry my ID with me and even if you are convinced I am of age, I will have no problem presenting my ID to you anyway.

Anyone that is 21+ I have a special event being worked out, details are in the thread ~Gamers and Costumes and Djs - Oh My!~

It might perk your interest. As for when the 18+ gatherings will take place, we will continue to work on details.

I would be down for this. only issue for me would be gas. If any one is gonna come from the Salem area I would be willing to carpool though.

Also I LOVE to cook so the pot luck idea excites me  ^_^

I would love to do this but it would have to be on a weekend so it won't interfere with school or kids stuff :P . I am also in salem and would love to have some cosplaying friends, most of my current friends are talerent but don't think it sounds like fun. Mostly they just roll their eyes at me ::) . I do love it though! :)
