Welcome Year of the Pony!

Since it's Year of the Horse (Pony) - I thought it might be fun to invade Chinatown during the festivities to ring in the new. We could dress in cosplay, have some food (several restaurants are having $2 tasting deals) and enjoy the festivities.

    Wow that crowd was really dense in there. I'm not sure how much we could have done to keep people together. We ran across some fans outside of the meetup group to some very mixed results, but it was nice to see. We also passed a pinball museum that we'll have to visit sometime.

    I intended (and failed) to make Taiyaki for the meetup/s, so fortunately I caught sight of a stand selling some. My Uguu Powers were running low and I needed a refill. They were overpriced, but I simply can't help myself.

      I've been to the Pinball Museum and will confirm that it's pretty sweet.

    much rice
    so Asian
    wow

    Fun to see that I tend to skip out on the samplers and make regular orders from a couple of restaurants being familiar enough with what they offer.

    Now, to be hopelessly idealistic about a GPS system to let everyone know where everyone is when we go to more chaotic meetups like these!

    Is everyone still meeting at a certain spot. Or are we just trying to find each other?

      We waited 30 at Pink Gorilla, and are now back at Uwajimaya shopping for last stamps/red envelope

      You prob want to text Jon Sokol since he was with the "mane group." I'm already back at Jigsaw prepping for the planning meetup.

      Last time I went to one of these they had some made up to hand out. I wouldn't worry about it.

      that's good I don't have a printer or a computer.

    Not to be left out, we'll also head over to Kinokuniya to check out what merch they have in stock. I've seen a good mix of uncommon stuff there. I actually bought my 4DE Twilight Sparkle from them.

    Someone asked about where to meet. The location says "Hing Hay Park." It's not a huge area and there's a prominent red arch with benches underneath that seems like a reasonable place to find each other. Here's a picture I grabbed from Google street view: http://imgur.com/UYnMYzX

      Did somepony say hay? I'm in.

      Funny thing... if you buy 5 of the $2 street foods (Including $2 boba and crepes), you get entered into a drawing for an autographed Seahawks jersey... Or a free round-trip airfare to Asia (To go see Osaka Jack & the other Japan bronies?)

    I'm still getting over a sinus/cold thing and trying to figure out if I will be well enough to attend. Is there a plan for where people are meeting?

    January 31, 2014

  • Heather

    I know I'm technically the event host (or was) but something unexpected has come up and I can't make it any longer. Hope everyone has a great time! :)

    January 30, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      Oh that's too bad. I was hoping to make something special for it too. I suppose I'll take the event host baton.

    • Justin L.

      Aw, I was hoping to meet you. Your avatar is just so cute! Maybe another meetup, then.

    Really its 2.5 the 4 month old doesn't really count does she?

    I should have scheduled last year's Dragon Fest (something I'll make sure happens this year). I ended up meeting a bunch of fans down there. The costume contest for that one actually did feature some great MLP outfits. It was supposed to be anime-focused, but they didn't seem to exclude western games/animation and there were even a few pony finalists.

    Anyway, I'd like to come in something interesting although I don't know what I'd have in time. I might just throw on my school spirit gear.

    January 22, 2014

  • Kitsune

    Hmmm, yeah! I'd like this!

      I like your Woona picture! :D

  • Tales

    Hmm, I haven't brought out the Pinkie Pie cosplay in awhile!

    1 · January 16, 2014

  • Justin L.

    Yeah, I'll try to make this. Should be fun!

    January 15, 2014

  • Curtis

    Hmm... maybe. Unfortunately, I have 0 pony costumes, but it still could be fun. (And it's close to where I live.)

    Looks like you need 2 more RSPVs before this gets an official announcement? I can do 50% of that even though I'm only 80% on attending. (I think it rounds up.)

    January 12, 2014

    • Heather

      You don't have to come in costume.
