We are going to pull off the first ever NYC cosplay subway ride and we want you to join us. This event was inspired by the No Pants Subway Ride and the many flash mob videos on youtube.
This event is purely for fun and will make for epic pictures and video opportunities. We want all of you to make to make new friends as well.
Date and Time
The date we have set is April 20th (420). The meetup time will be at 1pm - 2pm. Everyone will be put into groups depending on how long they wish to ride the train. We will start to put groups in trains by 3pm. That does not mean you should show up at 3pm. COME EARLY!!!
How will it work?
There will be 3 stages to this event, Its better this way so that people understand the timing.
Stage 1 - Starting point meetup at Union Square (1pm-3pm)
We will all meetup at Union Square Park from 1pm to 3pm. During this time we will take pics/video and get to know each other. By 3pm everyone will be divided into different groups and by 3:30 we should be out of Union Square and on the Subway.
Stage 2 - Subway Ride (3:30pm-4:20pm)
This is the tricky part so pay attention. During the subway ride the group leaders will guide the cosplayers and keep everything organized. Everyone will ride the train downtown for 20min and then ride it back uptown to the end meetup point which is The Producers Club on 44th st. The Subway ride itself should last less than an hour but different groups will take different routes that may be shorter than 30min. While riding the trains we ask that you do not stay in the same cart. If possible keep moving to the next cart unless of course the cart is crowded. To avoid confusion I may have some type of flyers printed and that will include all of the useful information including contact info.
Stage 3 - End point meetup @ The Producers Club on 44th (4:00pm - 8:00pm)
Our end meetup point is the Producers Club on 358 West 44th St at 9th Ave. This means you will have to get off at 42st. Its a indoor studio and it will give us a space to take more photos/ videos plus hang out for a bit. Any age can come but there is a lounge area to buy drinks, That is for people 21+ only. Everyone underage will only be allowed to stay in the room we get. I will update this page as soon as I know what room we are confirmed for. I know some of you will be worried about space but the theater room can hold about 100 people and the lounge can hold about 30 people so we should be fine.
