Cosplay Gatherings 2013

Postby cactusmomma » Sun Sep 01, 2013 8:59 am

For now, a lot of last year's information is still relevant, so that will be pasted over:
Since there are no programming tracks, the list will go alphabetically. Photographers wishing to advertise private shoots and cosplayers wishing to find photogs will be given a separate thread to not clog up the main groups thread. (Because really, it's private. Some people don't want others to know they're having a private shoot/deal with crashers.) Please don't hesitate to pm me if you have any questions about the meet scheduling. I will also be checking threads to see when preferred times and places are.

List - ABC:
American Comics/Pop Culture Sunday 2pm-3pm/ Photoshoot Area 1-Front Steps
Assassin's Creed Saturday 3pm-4pm/ Photoshoot Area 1-Front Steps

Places to meet!

The Winter Garden Lobby and second story. Please try to stay out of the sides (fire exits) and the third floor (busy walkway). Protip: Have the light from the main windows/doors in front of you. It will cast the light on your faces instead of having the glare wash everyone out.

Riverfront steps. Many large gatherings can meet here since they extend a loooooooooong ways down! Good lighting, has a river present.

Mariner's Church. Right across the street from the Ren Cen, in-between there and Hart Plaza.

http://31.media.tumblr.com/ae1497866a01 ... o2_500.jpg
Hart Plaza, a wide-open (police patrolled) park that houses the Stargate.

Renaissance Center at night. Aren't these paths the coolest?

Layout map. Walk from RenCen to COBO: 8 minutes. City Hall is across the street, so there is police the whole way over.

Area maps!

Just dropping in for staff scheduling clarification disclaimer (schedule will be out very soon):
In the schedule, there will be a slot on Saturday marked SNK(KoF)... that is for the fighting game company Shin Nihon Kikaku's gaming meets, which include King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, and Last Blade. AoT/SnK will be labeled under Attack on Titan. Please don't show up to the one marked as SNK (unless you'd like to spectate of course!), as they're sharing space with Capcom and Tekken's fighting game meets. This is usually a large group and we would all like to not have confusion between the two groups. Much thanks!

There's going to be an Uta No Prince-Sama Photoshoot on Saturday but, if there were any photographers that were willing to have another, that'd be nice. :D Hopefully, somewhere between the Riverfront and the WinterGarden area.

My only request is that the My Little Pony photoshoot does not conflict with the Final Fantasy photoshoot. That is to assume both are scheduled for Saturday afternoon. If there could be a secondary shoot for either/or, that would be great, too. That is all. :D

Edited: Forgot to include the photoshoot in question. My statement makes sense, now! xD;;

An Adventure Time group would be awesome, or it could just be a Cartoon Network gathering.

I would like to put up to stick with a Saturday slot for the Obscure, Rare and Original. Around noon would be best, though I am willing for a little later. Would prefer to avoid any shoots I host, to not be around same time as the Homestuck shoots (which usually are around 4:13pm), since I will likely be at those.

Not running, but I know per the Homestuck fandom tradition, 4:13 is the traditional slot of time they usually always request. They will likely require one of the largest areas...based on the flux of the fandom I have seen since last year, and from cons I have been to so far this year, I have seen upwards of close to 200-300 at Colossalcon and AWA easily for the Saturday gatherings alone and up to possibly easily over a 1,000 at Otakon...

I will second the request for the Persona/SMT Dark Hour, Midnight (Saturday into Sunday) as per the tradition.
