  it is very informal.  I say the main stuff is between 12 and 3.  but you can come by anytime.  I'll be there from 10 am till probably the end of day.

I don't know if I will be there, it's probably a no, but I might stop by if I do.

I plan on getting my hair cut, going shopping(maybe) and going to a concert.
But I don't know how to get there, or if I'll even do those things.
I hate not having rides. D:

Yeah.  more people.   I was walking around Japantown today and the city was out, painting light poles and sprucing up all over.

I also saw a sign for the 1st annual chalk art festival on the same day but at luna park which is at 13th and jackson.

I might eat at the ramen place, then meet you at Far Out Toys.
I think the latter won Metro's toy store of the year 2008 award? Lemme look it up.
After wards, I might head down to try Pizza Chicago, if I can afford it.
Saturday, right?

Hey, if you're still cosplaying around 4 pm, come on by the Kidz Zone, where Stage Zero is trying to coordinate a cosplay event.  Not necessarily a contest or masquerade, but just something so that we can showcase to our audience, and Stage Zero can do small interviews with you.

Hopefully the weather will be okay (might be chilly, but rain, let's hope not)

I'll come by. 

When I read about the swap meet today I wanted to try and sell.  But I'll stay at the store for the gathering.  I can't wait to see everyone.

I didn't find anybody except Moogleborg. XD And he didn't even know about this gathering, I don't think.
I had fun at the festival anyway, pics coming soon.
LOL at me winning Brawl with Captain Falcon  ;D

I was there. I was the Sakura (as usual) and I always played random on Brawl, and I also did Dragonforce on medium. Man, those people, kicked my butt on Brawl. I also embarass myself, with mistake of hare hare Yukai dance. Anyway, i want to know, who won the cosplay contest and the raffle. Because, my parents forced me to leave at 5.
