Fantastic! If I can arrange a pot-luck, I'll have a list of who is bringing what (once we have more participants) and I can try to get some blankets and picnic baskets. I thankfully have a car and will be there on Thursday evening so either that night or Friday I can get what I need.
I was thinking Saturday around noon---keeping in mind events that people will want to go to as they are announced. Time is flexible as there's 2 months to go!
Just to let you know, there is usually someone who hosts a meet up on Acen Sunday that involves a picnic lunch and swapping/buying clothes from each other. Do you know a girl named Shannon? She's originally from Illinois but moved to Michigan and she hosted the meet up last year. I doubt that anyone has discussed such plans yet, but I'd check Acen_gosurori and Chigothloli on livejournal for Acen meets.
You can try to host a pot luck during the weekend, but it's best to do it as a private RSVP party. Be sure to follow your hotel's rules - room parties can get wild, and you really don't want a bunch of random-hungry congoers barging in for free food (that is, if your room is within the con's vicinity). I know for sure that Acen is still having trouble with serving foods at panels/programs (i.e: maid cafe).
And a heads up, the majority of lolitas attending will be in cosplay for the first two days.
