Hello October is finally here and that means its time for Halloween. A cosplayers favorite holiday.

I want to do something big for this year's Halloween celebration, I think we should go visit a corn maze and walk around it in costume. I think I will break out my ghetto Pyramid head. But I think we should go to a restaurant first then to the farm and maze.

I have narrowed it down to two possible farms, they both have mazes and are located in the south/ southwest suburbs. I want to make sure we can bring props. Once I have picked a farm, I will put a MapQuest link so everyone will know where it is located.

As far as eating, we are planning on going to the Patio restrauant, its smiliar to Portillos. It's located in Orland. The farm does have a concession stand, so if you don't make it to the restrauant, you can snack on something there.

If you need a ride, make a post and say where you live or what landmark you are close to (ex. Woodsfield mall). If you are driving and are willing to drive people in your area, please post that.


Here is the important information:

Cosplaying: Everyone should try and cosplay, but if you can't, please still come
When: Sunday October 26
Time: Noon at the Patio
Location: Konows Corn Maze, Homer Glen, IL
Link to MapQuest is below

*UPDATE*

Konows Corn Maze, here is there website http://www.konowscornmaze.com/

The farm has two corn mazes, one that is 0.9 miles and another that is 3.5 miles. There are also several smaller games and a hay ride, the website has more detail. Admission is $7, but the website has a $1 coupon. So admission is really $6. They are open from 11am to 7pm.

Sweet! If I get my vacation time this will be the day I get back from Niagara Falls & Toronto, Canada. I'll still kinda be in recovery from a long road trip, but I'll try to come.

If I can finish making it in time, I'll come as Moka from Rosario+Vampire.

Well if people don't mind, there are all sorts for farms with corn mazes and haunted houses in NWI, it'll be closer then the dunes and there are a ton of resurants in the area. I'd have to know soon though because I usually work on sundays, but if it's after 3 I can definately at least go eat with you, but I'd like to be able to request off.

My parents might not be willing to let me frolic out on a Sunday and I don't even know if I'll be putting the effort into a costume seeing as I doubt I'll be able to wear one on Halloween... >>
I shall see...

UPDATE

I think the best choice is Konows Corn Maze, here is there website http://www.konowscornmaze.com/

Its located in Homer Glen, IL, please MapQuest it so you know how to get there, http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Homer+Gl...9+S.+Cedar+Road

The farm has two corn mazes, one that is 0.9 miles and another that is 3.5 miles. There are also several smaller games and a hay ride, the website has more detail. Admission is $7, but the website has a $1 coupon. So admission is really $6. They are open from 11am to 7pm.

As far as eating, there aren't really any restaurants near the farm, but the farm does have a concession stand. There are two options for a restaurant, we can either meet at the Chili's near my house then head to the farm, which is 30 minutes away. Or go to "The Patio" in Orland, its on the way and its a restaurant similar to Portillos.

So what does everyone think???

Just some friendly advice.
Wear sturdy sensible waterproof shoes it could get muddy.
Don't wear any thing that's drags on the ground behind you or you can trip on .

I vote for the 3.5 mile maze. Wherever we go for food is fine as long as I have an address for my GPS.

Yes break out the blood. It will be especially funny when we go to the restrauant.


Also, since we went to Chilis last weekend and the food wasn't that great. I think we will go to the Patio. I will put up a link with the address, later today.
