HETALIA DAY IS TOMMOROW!
I'm sure most of you know what Hetalia day is, but in the off chance someone doesn't know this is my spiel on it.
Hetalia day is an international fan-made holiday where fans gather to generally geek-out together. Usually at these gatherings there is a variety of activities from games/larps, cosplays, photoshoots, picnics, etc. as long as it's Hetalia-related.
Okay so the important information for your burning questions.
I think we all agreed a "World Pot Luck" was a good idea, yes? So this is the idea we're running with and thus explains the below information a wee bit.
October 22nd. (Saturday)
The People have spoken! a.k.a. Ya'll said Forest Park would be best. Where specifically? Central Fields! Why? Because its huge and grassy and there will be plenty of space for our gathering and games! Because Central Fields is in fact so large I think we should meet up near the corner of Wells St. and Jefferson Dr. Our group will probably stick out so just look for us (Not right up on the corner but around the area near the parking I guess)
(All activities are tentative pertaining to interest, so give feed back please)
Axis vs. Allies (Hetalia vers. of a camp game called "Angels vs. Murders")
Swedish Twister (Suggested by ur-a-baka95 Sounds like fun!)
Some adorable crafts will be up for sale from The-Real-Shironami so check them out!
Have a game you love and want to share? We'll take suggestions too! (Note us the name of the game and the rules)

518ZombiedDreams - Norway (Business Suit/Casual)
The-Real-Shironami - New Zealand
ur-a-baka95 - Canada (or fem!)
Hippojello - Russia, Ukraine, or Canada

More or less we're just curious about who would be going and cosplaying. Duplicates are welcome! (c'mon an army of Canadas running over America would be AWESOME)
Also note if you gave me a small list of possibilities I just put them all up here, please do not feel pressured to do them all (good lord we'll only be there four-ish hours one outfit is enough) Just pick which ever you'd like to do yourself!
Oh my gosh so many cosplayers! Beware Zombie is a bit of a camera maniac.........
Mizububbles (Friends from her Anime Club)
Des3510 (Friend of team-severus)
explosiveangel838 (Friend of team-severus)

We'd just like a general head count for the picnic part of our Hetalia day. So if you don't want to cosplay or your parents or friends want to come they are more than welcome! Just let us know~
Smorgasbord of the Pot Luck!
518ZombiedDreams - Krumkake - Norway - Dessert / Fruit
vivthehedgehog - Italian Biscotti - Italy - Dessert? Snack? / Flag Sugar Cookies
ur-a-baka95 - Scottish Shortbread - Scotland - Snack?
Okay! You! We'd like you to bring something to share, because we all love food Here's the deal, we want variety (it really is the spice of life), we'd also like to know the dish's origin (after all this is a "World Pot Luck") and you to note the group with the dish's ingredient list. Why? Because of food allergies, so when we all gather we can let anybody know if they need to! Safety first!
What else to bring
Weather appropriate clothing
Your wonderful faces!
Now on another note
We really encourage you guys to check out our chatroom and talk with us and each other (it will also help with planning this, no?). We really want to get to know you!!!!!
Both of us will try to be in there every evening, so don't be afraid! We don't bite!
IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER
In case the weather gets really nasty (freezing cold, rainy, etc.) I have concocted a backup plan! Okay in the event that it rains while we are already in the middle of our event there is a bathroom/shack thing at Central fields that would do nicely for temporary shelter from a storm. However, if it is icky before we start we can simply go to the other side of Forest Park and take a tour of the History Museum (possibly, I hope we don't have to resort to this). Checking the weather it’s supposed to be mid 60-70F while we are out there with only 10% chance of precipitation at the end of our event, so not too bad but be sure to have weather appropriate clothing people! We don't want anybody to get sick!
Anyway Look forward to hear from you all very very soon!
Have a wonderful day everybody!
