EDIT 13.7.09 - THE DATE FOR THE PICNIC WILL BE WEDNESDAY 5th AUGUST! Everyone who's coming, please post and I'll make a definite list of attenders! I think it would be good if we could meet at a station so no one gets lost or left behind - how about Hyde Park Corner tube station? As for a time, I'd say aim to get there at 10-ish
EDIT 12.7.09 - What do you guys think about the 4th (Tuesday) or 5th (Wednesday) of August for the picnic? Is this okay? Please let me know!
bolinand I been talking over on the MCM Forums and we were discussing plans to arrange a HETALIA PICNIC/MEETUP in LONDON [England].
This weekend [11th – 12th July] is the Japanese Arts Festival in Richmond, and I know some Hetalia cosplayers are going to be there. There’s also the Tokonatsu Anime Festival in Bedfordshire [31st July-3nd of August]. Buuuut we thought it would be nice to have an event, however casual, soley dedicated to Hetalia.
So! Would anyone be interested in coming along?
WHAT: Hetalia meetup and picnic for London fans. Please bring along some food and/or drink from the country of your choice. Of course, anything else you want to bring to make the day more fun – frisbees, flags, frying pans etc – would be great, too.
WHO: youuuuuu. Come in cosplay, come in normal clothes, come naked! We don’t mind. If you are interested, leave a comment to this post; you can contact me via my journal or email/MSN [firstname.lastname@example.org]. The more the merrier!
WHERE: so far, the most promising option we’ve thought of for a location is HYDE PARK. This has its advantages and disadvantages, of course, and I’m totally open to suggestions of other places we could go.
WHEN: we’re hoping it can be in late July/early August, just after the release of England’s character CD… the date is pretty much completely flexible at the moment, as long as it’s before August 7th [I’m going away.] So your opinions on this would be really helpful. Does it matter if the meet is on a weekend or not (this being the holidays)?
Right, so please drop me a reply if you’re interested and I’ll make a list of people who can/might be able to come. I’ll be cosplaying either redcoat or early US occupation England on the day (depending on some issues with the post office. orz).
PEOPLE [definite or possible]:
Muffin & Alanna [from MCM forums]
Hope to see a lot of you there! ♥
