Year One – A Rogue’s Gallery Crisis!

Come celebrate a year of (relatively) successful violence, debauchery, and crime with The Rogues!

Attend a Rogues Gallery art show curated by Fugitive Color himself, featuring variety-show style performances by the Rogues and friends, including:

– A Freakuency DJ set
– Live painting by Fugitive Color
– Live music
– Puppet show
– Cooking lessons from Terry Finkhouse
– Someone else you remember from the show doing something else you’re interested in….
– Burlesque performances….maybe
– Like… some kind of interpretive acrobatic…act
– Magic?….!
– Whatever, we might even kill somebody live on stage. I don’t care. You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts.

We WILL be filming for a top secret video project, and costumes are not mandatory, but we WILL kill you on camera if you aren’t wearing one. If you’d like to be an extra in the video shoot, the only requirement is to come dressed in a villainous costume (all costuming levels acceptable – as long as it’s an original idea).

Every attendee will receive a complimentary poster print with exclusive Year One artwork only available at the show. Variant Cover Art by guest artists & “Monthly” Cover Art is subject to limited availability – First Come, First Serve.

Cosplay Beach Party 2016

Hosting a Swimsuit Cosplay Meet-Up at park with beaches!
We’ll have food(grills), drinks(BYOB for alcohol), music/dance/rave parties featuring Hardcore 313 DJs, volleyball/Ultimate Frisbee/football/badminton/etc., photoshoots, watermelon smashing (スイカ割り) and bunch of WEEB activities!

We will be holding a cosplay beach volleyball tournament, a swimsuit cosplay contest AND a regular cosplay contest!

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

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

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.

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 stare at you. But fear not! Embrace your outstanding work of cosplay and let’s get some great shots on the beach scene!
