So with the wild success of my cosplay: as most of you already know it was Russell from Disney/Pixar's  UP movie. My girlfriend is thinking about having a gathering at Fenton's Creamery in Oakland, Ca.

She's actually thinking of organizing Lolita event ~ but she's also okay with the idea of other cosplayers or even non-cosplaying people showing up and just hanging out.

Sure the movie "UP" is over a year old, but Fenton's is still also known for its great ice cream and awesome atmosphere which i think would be a great place to hang out, beat the heat and get your noms on with a tasty treat.

I wanted to see if anyone was interested in going to Fenton's in Oakland one Saturday, maybe Aug. 14th? We can go for lunch and get some ice cream!

Let me know if you are available to join us! ^_^


Date: Saturday, August 14th
Time: 2:00PM [changed due to the NihonMachi event in SF Japantown]  tentative time due to traffice between SF and Oakland.

Place: Fenton's Creamery & Restaurant
Map: google "fentons ice creamery, oakland"
Closest BART station is on MacArthur
Cost: Lunch + ice cream if you want, parking is free

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!

Sounds cool to me, since it's open to non-cosplayers and those not in fashion. And either Saturday is fine with me.

Man..I would love to go but I'll be shipping out to Hawaii around that time. =(

It sounds like a really fun idea though so hope people show up and have a fun time.

btw... Doesn't matter if it's a year old or not. I actually rented and watched this movie because I saw YOU cosplaying and was then interested in the movie. You should actually ask Disney for your royalties now.

Well I was pretty sure I couldn't go, but now I'm sure. T^T
BTW Jerry did you change that picture of Russell? For some reason it looks a bit different today...o.O"
And at Wondercon this year I saw a little kid in Russell cosplay, LINK
it was cute, but yours is just plain epic Jerry.  ;D

Yeah, my avatar has changed.

the other one was his RAWR face... my girlfriend said it kinda looked like a scary face.
do I found him doing the " caw caw " part instead and he does have a cuter smile.

That kid version with glasses is so AWESOME! who ever helped him out with that is epic.
I think his backpack is more accurate than mine!

thanks for calling me epic, but remember- if it wasnt for my friends who helped me, my girlfriend and her motivational and support and of course all you fans and ppls who have complemented me and given me such kind positive feedback. :D

I would man, but I have a policy NOT to go to Oakland unless absolutely necessary. I just know that city will be my deathbed...

LOL I just checked and my classes are actually on the following monday =__= I'm an idiot =P It's kinda far from my house, I live in Santa Clara so I don't think I could make it but otherwise if I can I'd prob. be in my Female Choji cosplay or my Koume-Hanamaru Kindergarted cosplay, that'd be cute to see a kindergartener (though im not XD) eating ce cream. Or seeing a choji stuff "her" face XD

Sounds fun! I've never been to Fenton's before...but it's too far for me. I can't drive or travel on my own, either. Maybe I'll go check it out with my family some other day.

Thanks to one of the girls here's one of the flickr slide show of some of the photos from the Baby Store Event.

Also has Fenton's Ice cream photo shoots as well.

Enjoy!
