Group Info

The point of this group? Well, it's in the name really, however, anyone can join no matter where u live. This is mostly a social group and a place to showcase the great cosplayers that can be found in Chicago or nearby places in Illinois/Indiana! Also, to keep up with the cons that happen in the mid west! Apologies ahead of time if it starts off rather slow!

This group features cosplayers from the mid-west area of the U.S, but is open for ANYONE to join! :3

I meant it when I said we're not dead! I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier!!

I'm friends with a couple of u on Facebook so I was think that I could just make a Like Page on Facebook for the group!! How does that sound to u guys? When it is up I'll have someone send around the link!

ALSO!! I have a Tumblr:
I'm still putting it together so u r all welcome to follow me if you'd like! I'm also thinking of making the group a blog on there!

I was very excited when I first created this group and I've come to appreciate each and ever member here. That's why I've tried so hard to keep the group together and running. Those who have stuck with this group even up to now I thank you so so so much! -Laterz!~
