Hello, fellow anime enjoyers (that’s a hint at this week’s exec choice)… remember the last two weeks of announcements? Well, fear deserted newsletters no more! We’re choc-a-bloc with events this week:
- Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? A spongy exec choice!
- This week’s social, a pre-MCM cosplay workshop!
- More details on our MCM Comic Con plans \:O
- Let’s drink to that… circling pt. 2 signups?
- A poignant WSC showing, with the usual discount for anisoc members!
Let’s get ready to absorb this week’s announcement!
Tuesday (10/05) Exec Choice + Member’s Choice
Traditionalists shall seethe at our exec choice this week. I am one such traditionalist and so will pass the mic to Mabey, our librarian, to explain what we’re showing for 19:00 in MS.02 on Tuesday.
“This week western animation finally gets its time to shine, and we start with a few of the best(in my opinion) episodes of the iconic Spongebob Squarepants! I highly encourage bringing episodes of your favourite western animated shows for members choice, so make sure to come to the best Tuesday event yet :anyaSmug:”
If you want to take him up on that offer, bring a DVD/USB with what you want to watch and it’ll be put to our member’s choice vote, after the exec choice - we’ll be watching 2 episodes of the winning show, and I will be burying my head in my hands, in the back right corner.
Pre-MCM Cosplay Workshop
For those of you who are dressing up for MCM (more details below), this event’s for you!
Whether you’re coming to Comic Con or not, feel free to join us at our pre-MCM cosplay workshop on Saturday 14/05 from 18:00 in MS.05! Here, you’ll have the opportunity to trial your cosplay (if you have one), receive feedback and appraise others, and possibly learn a thing or two about topics like knitting and sewing, wig maintenance, applying makeup and learning dance routines!
This event is open to anyone who wants to see all the amazing costumes from our members, or to just socialise.
