The monthly meetup is just a laid back event to socialise, get to know each other and discuss any ideas for future meetups. Agenda: 18:00 -19:00 Newcomers and anxious members pre-meet. -arrive while it's quieter and buddy up with someone for the evening. 19:00 - 19:30 Arrival, find tables, order some drinks for yourself, get comfy since everyone is always a little late. 19:30 - 20:00 Icebreaker game (if the space allows for it noise/space wise) 20:00-22:00 Socialise! Say hello to your new fellow nerd girl you just learned about. 22:00-22:30 Wrap up- exchange contact information, organize buddies to walk to the train/car with or buddies to continue hanging out with!
Let's meet up and get each other excited about cosplay! I'll chat about what it is, who should do it (the short answer is anyone!) some do's and don'ts, what it encompasses and how to get cosplaying if you have never tried it out before. We will also discuss some events we can go to together and find out if anyone wants to do a group cosplay (from the same series/movie/game etc). Please bring pictures of characters you are interested in cosplaying (male characters are totally acceptable) so we can help each other plan and share ideas on how to create them. Bring the details of any events you are interested in -I think this is a great opportunity in April: http://www.cosxpo.com/ . Any previous cosplays are always fun to see too! -see the picture up top for one of mine ;)
Fancy a nerdy trip to Amsterdam & Utrecht? BANG (Amsterdam edition) will be turning 3 years old and they are trying something new to celebrate. There will be a 1 day conference/convention with talks, workshops, socialising games and guest speakers. A few members have kindly offered their spare rooms/couches for anyone wanting to join in from our UK group. I know it might not be feasible this time but remember it for next year! The NL group is multicultural, extremely welcoming and everything will be in English. Since they've hired a venue there is a 15 Euro ticket fee. So far there are roughly 30 attendees. If anyone is thinking of going, get in touch regarding travel/accommodation plans and any other questions you may have. Naturally there would be time for sightseeing and we can plan to do things together. I have booked my flights and there are still reasonable tickets on KLM from Heathrow to Schiphol.
