I posted this note on the facebook page for this but I thought I'd post it here as well.
I wanted to just say one more time that I ask that people DO NOT cosplay to this meetup. It's not a cosplay meetup. I know I can't force you not to nor am I trying to be the authoritative meetup host... I just ask that you realize that we aren't the only ones at Mitsuwa on that day. I don't want to draw a lot of attention to this meetup and take away from the gourmet food fair that is going on. Someone has already talked about how people at Mitsuwa can find cosplay offensive. This is not a con nor is it even a mall. It's a place where people shop for groceries. There are a lot of elderly customers there as well. Not everyone likes anime and cosplay so they wouldn't exactly consider it flattering if a plethora of people dressed in crazy costumes came in.
I'm just saying all this because I don't want to have this meetup be looked upon as disruptive to Mitsuwa. We need to be mindful of the workers and customers. I'm sorry if I seem like the extreme stick in the mud but I want this to be as fun as possible :] We don't need cosplay to have this be a fun meetup.

Of course, casual cosplay or costumes were you look like just another person in the crowd are totally ok. :DD Just dressing in say... Hatsune Miku is too much ;AA;

Pickles mixed with ice cream, pudding, and ketchup.

Not everyone is concerned with protocols. Social, or otherwise. If you've ever been to Japan, you'll notice there are a lot of cosplayers even on not-so-special occasions. ;D What if I dress out of era? Like, Victorian or somfin'? Maybe in a toga. That'd be fun! ;D *pokes at gabi*

I don't think a toga is a good idea. We should be respectful. Not every place have the same rule. Just dress like yourself :D the real you would be more awesome to meet then a character. But if you really want to cosplay then keep it really down low. Casual.

Lol that's true. But I still don't want to piss off people there. and like I said it's not as if I can physically stop people from cosplaying ;A; I'm too weak to throw people out bahhh. But it'd be nice if a majority of us didn't cosplay.
Actually... victorian attire = amazing so... even I wouldn't mind that /shot a million times

I never looked here before because it was only at the con when I realised just how shy I was. Unfortunately I can't come. :(

Since they will have that gourmet food thing going on, instead of cosplay, maybe we should go for classy, eh? XP

Some reason I can picture all of you guys showing up acting like a bunch of Hinatas' from Naruto; with the hand movement and such.

Or actually moving forward from feeling shy.

I'm pretty shy in person, but I don't know if I could make something like this... I live about 85 miles SW of the city, so this would be a pretty long trek for me. Maybe I could try and convince a friend to go up with me. Iono...

ahh seems like a lot of people can't go due to the time it's at ;AAA; That may be a problem hmmm. Who is for sure going?? If it's not a lot of people and a majority want it for a later time then I could move it but I kind of like the earlier time.

@nouseforaname - That'd be adorable if we were all like that p__p!!!

Most awesome! I am down with this... most likely I would go with MajaanPro if our scheds syncs, it would be awesome.
Unfortunately, I would sorta go against cosplaying there, as it was said and it's sadly true, it is frowned upon. But just do what Gabicho would do, just wear something unusual or a simple anime item just to pick yourself off the crowd (a headband, hat, shirt, pin, bags, even pull out a DS or something, etc etc... you guys get the point)... I myself wear a very silly "Cat in a Hat" hat sometimes for meetups.... cause I stand out like a sore thumb but it is effective trying to find me, silly nonetheless.

And/or/then have like like a secret code like:

Shy A: Spicy Happy Yakisoba!
Shy B: They have it here!
Shy A: You got the S.H.Y.?
Shy B: Yes I/we do!

LOL!!! Just a thought! Plus I am not really a shy guy (most of the time). I'm much more of a networking nut and a bridge. Just gotta connect the dots! This would be fun!

Lol that's an awesome secret code XDD I think our meeting spot should be an indicator enough since no one really meets around there. Especially at the outside grassy patch.

If the time has to change, how does 1-5 sound? I'm not saying the time has changed YET but if a lot of people want it, then that'd be the meetup time.

^ I see I see~ I like the original time too :] I just want a good amount of people to respond and tell me what they think. If hardly anyone wants the new times then I'll just keep the 11am-3pm slot.

I'm just going to keep the normal time~ Sorry if that confused anyone for a bit.

If people can't make it this time and things go well at this meetup, I'll definitely plan for more meetups in the future :] Whether it's another mitsuwa trip or even a picnic, I'd like to get as many people included as possible.

One more week~
I can't wait!! Though now I don't know what to eat hmmm. I want to try something I normally don't eat. Maybe ramen or the gabutto burger place. It shares the first three letters of my nameeee

I know the owner of Mitsuwa and the head of security. I will ask them first about displaying and let them know ahead of time that this group will be going to Mitsuwa. I believe it should be ok as long as the outfit is appropriate, no rowdiness, and no accesories( aka weapons or anything that may seem dangerous) I will let everyone know on this post as soon as I get information.

thanks!! :] That'll help clear up a lot of things.
Though I'd still rather this not be a huge cosplay meet up XD Since it's only a casual meet and greet.

I just talked to the store manager @ Mitsuwa and he said cosplay is ok as long as the costume is within reason and not inappropriate. Definately no weapons of any kind. And cannot hang around cafeteria for too long to let other customers dine in. And no dowdy behavior. I know it sounds like a lot of rules, but other groups in the past kind of ruined rep for anime groups. So please everyone be at your best behavior.
