Halloween weekend, oct 29 and 30th, the Long Beach Comic Con will here. I've have been to the Long Beach Comic Con, I assume it is like the one in San Diego, minus the hype. Plus, cosplay is more than welcomed in any Con. Anyone up?
Vision: To provide a creative and social outlet for cosplayers and designers in the Los Angeles area.
This group is for cosplayers, anime fans, manga fans, comic lovers, gamers, LARPers, roleplayers, WOW'ers, costumers, Steampunks, lolitas, cafe maids, mermaids, Picachus, Sailor Moons, Dragonballers, Harely Quinns, designers, stitchers, sowers, accessorizers, make-upers, 3d printing aficionados, and crafters of all types.
You have probably met us at conventions, online, or just stumbled upon us here on meetup.com. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your cosplay kung-fu!
For the safety and security of all members of this meetup, post an ACTUAL picture of yourself and use your REAL NAME. Profiles with mystery pictures, self-given screen names, and/or sentences poorly put together will be rejected and/or removed.
Keep in mind that this group is for creative growth and networking, not solicitation. We are not anti-business, however. There are professional cosplayers, photographers, costumers, shop owners, and film industry people in the group. Approaches to the group and group members should be in the spirit of collaboration. You should be asking what you can do for others, not what others can do for you. Also I don't forward all requests as I get them daily, and it is on you to show up to events and do the networking yourself. Don't just look in the events section, we also have a discussion board where members post what is happening on the cosplay scene.
If you have free tickets for your movie premiere, let us know. We can help you fill the seats, especially if your movie is sci fi, superhero, or anime related.
If you want to sponsor an event by providing pizza or materials, please message the organizer directly. Messages should start with the words, "I would like to provide _________ for one of your events." If you sponsor an event, you will be given an opportunity to speak at the event.
