Ciao! :iconfeliplz:
Its been a little long while once again, huh? ^^;
Well, I hope everyone who went had a great time at Kawacon, and are looking forward to Anime STL!

This panel is going to be for next year!
On that convention note, :iconpolly-peptide: has a new panel idea for the occasion. Here is how she describes how the panel works:
"Ba ba bum! The idea! The panel would be set up like a un conference. I First off, I, who will likely cosplay England, will give the rules and guidelines, and will chair the debate. The audience will choose a non political, non offensive topic for each country to discuss. I will rule it in or out of order. If it follows the rules, it's in order and we proceed with a 1 min speech about the topic from the first delegate on the left. After they finish their speech, the audience asks questions that the country has 1 minute to answer. The speaking time is flexible and can be changed. We move on to the next delegate until all nations have gone. Then, the next topic is chosen, and the cycle continues. If you want, I could go in a lolita outfit that isn't hetalian, so the chair wouldn't make speeches. I'm open to suggestions. Thanks for reading! Ciao!"
UPDATE! This panel is going to be for next year!

The next thing to go over is the spring ( -ish ) Zoo Trip! I was saying that mid-March was going to be the time to go, but the weather is even weirder than last year, and remember how the day we all went was shiny and cool? ...but then the next day dumped a bunch of snow all around? I want to make sure we don't accidentally plan for a surprise!snow day. So, I was thinking we could go for a date in April after Astl. Perhaps a day like the 26th of April ( Sat. ) would be good? Also, as far as this meet-up goes, the rules are the same as last time, so here's a link to that journal:…
Just remember that the parts about the weather and time are from the old trip, and won't be the same this time. :iconvenezianoplz:

Another thing I wanted to bring up was about Hetalia Day this year. Yes, it's still two/three-ish seasons away, but this needs to be brought up so everyone can catch wind of what's going down. As we learned from last year's Hetalia Day, the park people don't want more than 20 people hanging around without a permit/reservation. ---and we had way over 20 people celebrating with us ^^;
So, my family and I are willing to pay for the reservation before-hand for a pavillion ( most likely the Chinese pavilion; you can see them all here:… ), but that means that we're going to charge a one dollar admission fee. Anything collected over the $40 ( which the Chinese Pavillion costs ) will go straight to buying water, food, and other supplies used during Hetalia Day. However, if a person were to come and not have their dollar, should we oust them or let them stay? I had talked about this with Prussia, but this matter was the core of what we were concerned about. We don't want to tell anyone that they can't hang out with us, but we want to be fair all around, right? If anything, please tell me what you think about this subject!!

Lastly, I want to go over something that should be respected in any case; people's personal space. I've gotten a few many comments about how some of our members have felt rather uncomfortable when others get too close for comfort. I'm not going into any names, but for those who are rather free with their glomps, kisses, cornering, etc. please understand that not every cosplayer is cool with really close contact. Even if you ship that one pairing... or are just super ecstatic about being with other fans, please don't let it get to your head and disregard another's space. Now, I'm not trying to shut down the hugging and stuff by saying all this. If you and your buddy ( who you know is totally fine with gettin' huggy ) are having fun derping around like that, thats fine. All I'm trying to get at here is that we should try to refrain from getting in others' faces when we don't actually know if they're that open to stuff like that. So don't let my words bog you down from having fun with everyone, but please be mindful of other people's personal space :iconvenezianoplz:

Very lastly, things have been only getting more and more hectic for me on my end, so I'm going to have to step down from this leader-ish position in this club. However, I'm not about to just up and leave; we have a Zoo trip, Laser Tag, and a new Hetalia Day to try out! So, if there are any members out there who would like to inherit this club ( well, sorta; Mattsy-kun is still the founder/leader ), you all have until Hetalia Day rolls around again to step forward. If no one does... well, that's that then ^^;
Kinda a sad thought, but we'll see what happens, yes? :meow:

Ciao for now! :iconciaoplz:

Yoooo I won't be going to the meet up once again (I think) because of personal issues. On a brighter note, my bae submitted a hetalia panel idea for ASTL a few weeks ago and it was accepted, you would have to get more details from her (you might remember her from the whole cantown thing) so the more aph panels the merrier. I will be going Saturday and am still deciding on which cosplays to do. I will be doing two, so I may be doing Nyo!France, France, Hungary, or Clear from DMMD. Keep a look out for me, I'm happy to see y'all again!
