Cosplay Beach Party 2017

Due to popular demand, we’re back again for 2017!!
Most of you know what this is all about, but let me give you a recap for the newcomers!

We are hosting a Cosplay beach/pool-themed party with grill/picnic food, drinks, music/dance/rave parties featuring Hardcore 313 DJs, volleyball, photoshoots, watermelon smashing (スイカ割り) and bunch of WEEB activities!

BYOB for alcohol to be kept in the shelter/picnic area.
HARD LIQUOR IS NOT PERMITTED

Since there will be consumption of alcohol, 18+ is the recommended age. However, it is a public park so underage are allowed to attend as well.
Minor attendees should notify their parents/guardian the environment will include alcoholic beverages present, but we do not encourage underage drinking.

Cosplay is an expensive hobby.
With all the cosplay conventions we go to, the cosplays we buy or build and buy supply/material for, can rack up $$ quick.

So we want to hold a FREE ADMISSION event(with an exception of $10 metropark entry per vehicle) where cosplayers can still do what they love, but not have to worry about spending a large sum of money to attend to events.

** Events such as Watermelon smashing can go on at anytime during the meet up as long as a watermelon is available
** Anyone signing up from the Volleyball tournament can sign-up ahead of time so we can set up the base brackets to start off with. You can sign-up as a full-team or less, even by yourself and we can put you in a team of 5! Player sign-up is also available at the event before the tournament!

It would be so kind if any of you could bring some food/drinks to share! (We also have a PayPal set up for and will also make a tip/donation box if you’d like to help chip in instead!)

Come with your swimsuit version cosplays, or just your regular cosplays! No limitations! Cosplays are not mandatory to attend this event.

If you don’t have a metropark pass, park entrance cost $10 at the toll booth, so make sure to bring cash with you!
If you can, you can park somewhere nearby and carpool with some friends from there to avoid paying multiple entrance fee if it can be avoided!

The park does not allow the beach space to be reserved. The park has many rules and regulation where many activities we would want to have are restricted only in the picnic area which includes : grilling, consumption of alcohol, music, PA system, event-like activities, etc.

Therefore the volleyball tournament, musical entertainment, cosplay contest, drinking/eating will be held at the picnic area, and guests can have photoshoots at the beach, sunbathe, or boat rental! This is an all-day event, so there are no restrictions to when you show up, unless you will be participating in the Volleyball Tournament or entering in the Cosplay Contest.

REMINDER: The beach space IS NOT RESERVED (and cannot be) therefore the beach will have the general public there this is a warning, cosplays are very flashy so people will most likely stare at you. But fear not! Embrace your outstanding work of cosplay and let’s get some great shots on the beach scene!

Park Entrance cost $10 at the toll booth, so make sure to bring cash with you! (I’ll have to re-check to see if they take card)
If you can, you can park somewhere nearby and carpool with some friends from there to avoid paying multiple entrance fee if it can be avoided!

The park does not allow the beach space to be reserved and our Shelter “C” aka Spring Hill is in located in a secluded area, which is walking distance on the trail of 10~15min/1000 steps (I checked on my pedometer today) away from the beach. This will allow us to have music entertainment and PA system without bothering the other shelters! The park has many rules and regulation where many activities we would want to have are restricted only in the picnic area which includes : grilling, consumption of alcohol, music, PA system, event-like activities, etc.

Therefore the volleyball tournament, musical entertainment, cosplay contest, drinking/eating will be held at the picnic area, and guests can have photoshoots at the beach, sunbathe, or boat rental! This is an all-day event, so there are no restrictions to when you show up, unless you will be participating in the Volleyball Tournament or entering in the Cosplay Contest.

The beach may seem slightly bumpy and less smooth sand-like look. I am thinking of using either the backside of a rake or a snow shovel to flatten the beach surface and create an ideal flat sand look for photoshoot.
