I say it's a great occasion for another cosplay gathering at Farout Toys.

For people who aren't familiar with Farout toys it is on Jackson st between fourth and fifth st.
Closer to fourth st.

I can give better directions if needed.

**********Update***********

Okay, I don't know how to close the poll, but Sunday has won and I already requested it off.

Cosplayers and non-cosplayers are all welcomed.

time: 11am till however long you want to stay.

I'm trying to have a new costume done by then, lets hope I manage to finish.

@*@*@*@*@*@Update@*@*@*@*@*@

didn't finish the new costume but I will still be there, just dolled up.

here is the street address to make things easier

161 jackson st #1

I've gone to the Obon festival in the past. It's fairly fun, and conveniently located. I've never bothered to cosplay for it, though.

hmm is that the teeny shop on the 2nd floor of its building?

I don't have intention of cosplaying, but i'd like to meet new people with similar interests :) I'd probably come.

No, that's Nikaku that's the second-floor store on the east side of Japantown.  Farout Toys is in a 1st-story store closer to the west side of Japantown.

Just go west a few blocks or so.  It'll be on your right-hand side as you head west.

the store is located on jackson between fourth and fifth.  Usually the street festival is on jackson between fourth and sixth, with a little bit extending out on fifth.  Far out toys will be on one end of the festival.  It's between a Nail spa and an insurance office.

and today he's having a maid cafe. I didn't post about it because I didn't know about it untill a few days ago and also thought it was going to be on sunday.  I figured it be would have been a fun surprise for the gathering.

the address of the store

It's too bad I didn't work this Saturday, I actually start working at Farout Toys next Saturday (and every Saturday after that) from 1 to 4. I stopped by today though. ^^;
