yeah!
That will make it more fun, to travel with fellow cosplayers.
And aid each other if anyone needs help with costumes.

I'll be driving in from Monterey.
So I'll park at the Japantown garage, and go from there following the very helpful suggestions I've read here and on the cosplay forum.

I'll probably catch up to some of you at City Hall or Jtown.  I usually park at Jtown and walk over to City Hall early Sunday morning.  I didn't realize the Farmer's market is on Sundays in the plaza, I might see if I can grab a snack there before the parade.

That's why you take BART. Take it from Milbrae Bart and get off at Civic Center, and walk towards City Hall. No hassle on th e parking situation.

@Shyguy: well, we may go to Happy Sashimi Afterwards, sooo, that will be fun again if it happens.

Yeah, parking around Jtown can be difficult because the streets get blocked off and then there's St Mary's up the street so people are parking on the street for church service, too.  I try and park on the street either Geary on the block before Laguna or even on Van Ness.  The first year I did the parade, I parked by City Hall and had to walk ALLLL the way back to my car after the parade.  Sigh.  So now I park close to Jtown so I don't have to walk so far when I'm already tired ...  ;D

It was suggested by other experienced festival goers to park at Japantown by 8 am. So you could find parking. Then have time to finish getting your costume on before heading over for the contest judging or the parade.
Check-in time for the contest is listed as 10 am.

(ugh, will have to be on the road before 6 am that day...but the fun should be worth it!)

Yes, VictimX--I think I am going to take the advice given to me about the 8 am to the parking garage.
I'm going to need a little time to get the costume on--there's no way I'm going to make a 2 hour drive in my cosplay.
I'll have shorts and t-shirt suitable to wear under the costume that can get me around the fact there won't be a good private place to change clothes. And a jacket and sweat pants that can go over that for my drive, or be worn after the parade is over and I decide to change out of the costume.
I'll also need time to get the wig on, as there's also no way a super long wig would survive the long drive north, without being a horrible rats nest! LOL!

Not having done it before, I have no idea where we'd pick up the bus around Japantown, nor how long to allow for the bus ride to City Hall and the staging area for the costume contest. So again, I'll learn from those who've done this before, and just enjoy the whole crazy experience.
 ;D
