42ec Since there are meetups being created and becoming out of control, I've decided to create a list of all the gatherings happening throughout the state of Illinois and a few other ones elsewhere. Please post in this topic if you have an official gathering, but please discuss it with everyone on the topic before posting here. I won't update with maybes and not sures. I will need the times and locations for the meetups.

Note:
All italicized links means that the meetup is finished.

I was in the parking lot from the false fire alarm in '12.
I overcame the ACen rapture in '11.
I survived the ACen fire in '10.
I dodged the H1N1 outbreak in '09.

so...when exactly is the Mitsuwa Bon Odori Festival? And is anyone going to cosplay for that event? :3 Thanks

It's usually in August, but at the moment the date is not set.

As for cosplay, we try to only do traditional Asian clothes--preferably yukata (the Japanese summer kimono), or just regular clothes out of respect for the occasion. If you do cosplay, try to lean more towards those that blend in with the general public, as we don't want to draw attention to ourselves and away from the festival.
