Pre-Con Hydro Pump Palooza

Postby chasie » Thu May 02, 2013 5:48 pm

Pre-con Hydro Pump Palooza!
An assassination of fellow cosplayers during the unexciting hours of preregistration!
Basically bring your water guns/water balloons? >_<
I just want to know how many people would be interested?



-This will be on Thursday at 3pm-5pm. (Or until things simmer down)
-Bring your own gun, and TOWELS from home! Using the hotel towels for our shenanigans won't win us any points with the Marriott. (Besides we can hold a coolest/cutest towel contest! bwhaa)
-Colored ribbons of fabric will be brought and available for anyone who wants to play. These will allow us to recognize those who want to get soaked! I can't really enforce that you wear one, but please, pleaseeee be considerate of your fellow con goers. Besides; these strips of fabric will be free to you! Freeeee. You like free stuff right?
-Name tags will be provided for labeling belongings. Additionally we will have a safe area and a willing con wench, I mean volunteer... to watch over everyone's things while the battle ensues. (More than likely I will be in position for this job.)
-LOCATION Pending.I will be calling the Marriott within the next day or two to confirm a location where this can safely take place. I'm thinking the area just across from the convention center. Not entirely sure if the artificial turf is available to us to play on yet... If anyone has information on this then chime in!
-This is not an event hosted by Animazement or it's staff. If you decide to play in costume, realize that you run the risk of getting it wet/torn!
So pleaseeee don't come wearing some delicate costume with a prop that you worked on for ages! D;

This event is open to all and any suggestions on improving it!
And thanks to those who have already made so many wonderful suggestions!!! :oops: My adoration for you is unending.

Really?!!
Sweet! Well strap up for the precon then!
This was kind of just a whimsical idea, but I think we're going to flesh it out some more!
So for now, tell your friends and either way we're going to have an awesome time!

i'm almost a little afraid to ask, but is it possible to just stand/sit somewhere and watch everyone else get squirted, without myself getting wet? i'm going to be wearing a very expensive and WHITE Princess Serenity dress.

YES!!! (:
I'm not sure if this will be a 'big' event or not. But I'm hoping to bring enough strips of fabric for everyone participating to tie around their arm or something, signifying that they are 'fair game'.
Because although I won't be cosplaying on Thursday...I'd be pretty peeved if I was and got squirted!

Since I don't have a TON of responses in this thread, I'm assuming it will mostly just be my friends and I; in which case you are more than welcome to watch princess! (:

All I'm going to ask is have the strips large and a bright color, another in an all white cosplay would rather not get soaked. ^^' Probably doing this down at the fountains might be best.

Agreed! Have it somewhere that people are made aware of so they don't mistake folks who aren't participating!

We were thinking a neon orange or yellow.
Also, across the street where the hotel is would be nice. It's mostly away from the pretty cosplayers. And there is that artificial turf. (not sure if we're allowed on it though....)
I don't think doing it near the convention center would be a good idea with everyone running around. ^w^'

Believe me. My biggest fear for this event is disrupting those who aren't participating.
Which is why my first thought was to hold this at Morris Square a few blocks away. Or even across the street beside the hotel.
Away from the main doors of the con-center for sure! Because even if I hand out bright arm bands to the participants...accidents happen, so I'm trying to plan this to be away from any heavy areas of people.

I like the idea of it being across from the Marriott. It means I will be safe. Unless I want a Jimmy John's sandwich...... and I know I will. xD

Yikes!
I really need to plan this out better! I will update the first post to show this soon!
To answer your question: It's Thursday afternoon. I need to take a gander at what all is happening Thursday before picking a solid time though...

I ideally want to pick a time of day that will be hot (of course), that also doesn't conflict with any pre-con stuff.
This is basically an event to fill in the gap of time where...absolutely nothing is happening on Thursday. (:

And please, let me know of any suggestions you have! I'm a novice on planning...anything... hah.

;D Yessss!

I will be providing strips of colored fabric to designate our players. (And possibly an arsenal of community pre filled water balloons. ) Participants bring a gun and clothes to 'get soaked' in!!!

Hah! Well I'm looking at either across from the Marriott where people will be able to easily find and see what's going on. Or a few blocks away...which might be hard to find for some.

I really, reeeeallly hope this won't turn into something that would prevent anyone from Jimmmy John's or anything nearby for that matter.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions that could improve the safety of non-participants! I want this to be not only fun for us playing, but fun for people to watch and feel safe from.

It would be a good idea for it to be in a easily found location and not too far from AZ. Otherwise you will have non-convention attendees get involved and maybe out of hand.
Also consider where you're going to refill your water guns at.

For those wanting to attend, these are some things to keep in mind-

1. Bring your own water guns. Dollars stores are great places to pick these up.

2. Bring good running shoes.

3. Have extra towels on hand for afterward (your own, not the hotel's).

4. If you don't like the feel of wet clothes, bring a poncho.

5. A safe, SAFE, place to store your badge.
