Japan Video & Media and anime cosplaying events this year
« on: January 25, 2009, 12:43:26 AM »

The Cherry Blossom Festival will be April 11/12, 18/19 this year with the parade on Sunday April 19, 2009.  Sign-ups for the Anime Cosplayers portion of the parade have begun at Japan Video & Media, Japantown, San Francisco.

This link has the deadline plus information on Japan Video & Media also hosting a cosplay event every month beginning in February.

Owner Takeshi Onishi is a great guy.

I'm already signed up for the parade (missed it last year due to illness) and hope to see y'all there!  Not sure if I'll make it for the monthly events, but that would be fun to try.

Hey BunofGovt, thanks for posting this here! I spoke to Mr. Onishi a few weeks ago and actually he is also doing the Asian Heritage Fair cosplay event too (http://bayanime.com/5th-annual-asian-heritage-street-celebration/ but the details are TBA). He's a super nice guy, very generous, and always donates prizes to ALL cosplayers who take part in the events. I'm not sure if anything special is happening on Feb 1st for the next cosplay day, but I'll try to find out. He said he needs to ask around for volunteer speakers and for space to maybe do an anime screening(!). If there's a lot of interest in that (SF definitely needs an anime club!) then please let me know! At the very least it will be a discount day and a good excuse to gather in costume!

Mr. Onishi gets the forms and goes through them, after which he'll assign you a confirmation number. It doesn't happen immediately (I think he does them in batches, and I think he was sending a bunch of older registration confirmations out today) so please give it some time! If it's been a long time and you're really nervous you can contact me or give Japan Video a call (415-563-5220).

You definitely know that I shall be there.  I have been emceeing/part-time judging the Anime Costume Contest since 2000 (missed the first year), and I will do my part once again.  ;D

I'm excited to see who is going to be float-worthy.

FYI, Mr. Onishi is now looking for cosplaying individuals or groups that sing, dance, or play musical instruments for an anime talent show/musical performance event after the parade... If you're interested you can sign up on our site and register for the cosplay contest and/or parade while you're at it (if you haven't already signed up).

Already signed up a week ago. Hopefully the weather won't be too cold for my cosplay!
