Last year it rained a little in the morning and put a damper on the festival...  because of it, not too many Cos-Players showed up...  Excluding Animemyu, I counted 12 all together...  I'm hoping for more pleasant weather and a larger showing of Cos-Players this year... More Cos-Player's in attendance shows interest, and with this interest I'm hoping to get the festival planners to do more activities...  I mean aside from FanimeCon's participation in the Children's Activity Zone.

On a related note... I have a question, "Anyone out there (San Jose and neighboring cities) do 'Period' Cos-Play?"

I'll be volunteering here-and-there at the festival... Especially in the Children's Activity Zone... I won't be able to meetup with any of you, but I'm sure our paths will cross.

I was looking into planning a theatrical cosplay project for this festival, but no one here is interested in 'Period' Cos-Play... Well, there's always next year.

What do you mean by 'Period' cosplay? Do you mean from an anime that is set in a different time period, like feudal Japan as opposed to present day?  e.g., Peacemaker vs Deathnote?  And not fantasy or sci-fi settings?

'Period' Cos-Play is a seperate category from 'Anime', 'Game' or 'Tokusatsu' Cos-Play.  'Period' (historical) Cos-play is more like the Renaissance Fair.  You can choose to be a historical figure or create your own individual character... and through acting, interact with event visitors.  Characters can be, nobels, warriors, religious worshipers, townspeople, geisha, gamblers, machi-yakko, kabuki-mono... and more.

Well, just about one week out from festival day...  The upcoming week is going to be a HOT one.  I keep monitoring the weather forecasts and hope the Hot weather dosen't overlap the festival...

I hope many of you can attend, Cos-Play or not...  Hope is all I can do for now.
