Ok. I have a bit of a problem with the schedule. There are a lot of series that you normally see cosplayed every year at Youmacon that have absolutely no photo shoot scheduled. Kingdom Hearts was actually requested, and it's not even on the schedule. I didn't ask, because I'm not planning to cosplay it, but I know people who are. Tiger and Bunny was requested no less than 3 times, and I'm just curious as to why there is no BBC shoot. There's quite a few time slots that have nothing in them. Yu-Gi-Oh and Naruto were also asked for. I just thought I'd bring this to your attention. Some really big turn out groups got very ignored in the photo shoot schedule.

This, and I also noticed Bleach is nowhere on the list and while I've never attended that shoot myself, there's always seemed to be a lot of Bleach cosplayers.

There's nothing that can really be done now I'm assuming, but I'm surprised by how many of the more popular/big series aren't on the schedule this year.

I was pretty thrown off aswell. I always see one in the forums or the photoshoot actually happening. And here I finally get a KH based outfit ready to figure out where the photoshoot is and what-not and sure enough theres no scheduled photoshoot :/ just my kinda luck. Oh well atleast Im meeting a bunch of KH cosplayers on here to meet up with and stuff (if their willing to). I wonder if the Terra, Siax, and Vanitas cosplayers will be there again this year.

Oh, and just a quick note: you have Attack on Titan written as being from 4-5 while the schedule has it down for 5-6.

The reason why there are less photoshoots scheduled for the book is because programming could only list 4 places this year. We were only able to put down the shoots that were most relevant to programming. This is not to say that your gatherings can't happen at all still, you'll have to get their times and places out by word of mouth though.

There are a whole lot of time slots with zero photo shoots listed. These time slots aren't late at night, or early in the morning either. Also, how is Kingdom Hearts, one of the biggest cosplay turnouts, not relevant? Same with Naruto. Major series should always have photo shoot times.

At this point, we may as well stop complaining. Make a PSA to your fandom and set up your own shoot.

The rare/obscure/original photoshoot is that still going on today at 11?
