Please take a look at this document, add any props you can bring, and add props you don't have but would like someone else to bring if they have it. Thanks!
UPDATE: Our Primary Photographer for the event will be Cassandra Johnstone. Please note that as we have mentioned in previous cosplay days, having primary and secondary photogs does not mean that you can't bring your own camera. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CAMERAS =D
I will be posting a FAQ soon that explains how to make the most of our cosplay days.
We have also established a suggested "theme" for the day. Wizard Glamor Shots. If you decide to participate in the theme (and you certainly don't have to), one of our goals is to capture Wizards and Witches as if they were photographed by Vogue, Glamor or Vanity Fair. All with a good dose of tongue in cheek ridiculousness ;-)
I am thrilled to announce that our Fall cosplay day will take place in one of the most extraordinary national parks in the New York City area.
A practical secret hidden in Yonkers, Untermyer Park is an extravagant walled garden that is practically a portal to a different time and place.
We have received permission from the Yonkers parks department to photograph at this location from 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM.
The meetup start time will still be 10 AM as we set time to gather, get into costumes, prep equipment etc.
We are also working out details about having a picnic in the middle of the day. There are picnic tables outside of the walled garden in the public park.
We had to pay a permit fee for this, so I am activating the Meetup payment system. We are requesting everyone contribute $5 each to help pay for the permit.
Additional information including travel directions and working with members who have cars to arrange pick ups from the local train station will be forthcoming.
UPDATE: 8/4/2013 - Train details: Untermyer Park can be reached via Metro-North's Hudson line. You will need to get on a train bound for Greystone station at 9:20 AM which will arrive at Greystone at 9:56 AM. This train time is important because the next train leaving is at 10:20 AM.
We will be arranging for members with cars to pick people up at the train station at 10 AM to bring them to the park which is only 5 minutes away.
The current one-way off-peak ticket price to Greystone is $7.50
Current list of people traveling via Metro-North:
o Charlene Barker
o Chris Berdoz

o Gina Snape +1
