The Gathering List is closed.

Openings are still available for hosting at the Character Café!


Don't bother making new threads for gatherings, we ain't a big enough convention, dearies. Here's what I'll do to fix this.

To submit a gathering to this list: Include name of anime, day, and time, as well as location. At this point in the game, you can just include anime.

If you're interested in attending a gathering, just post here!

Pictures of the 5 gathering sites are now available here at the Mikomicon Forums (http://mikomicon.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=379&p=1178#p1177).

Gathering List:
Gatherings with ??:?? may not happen unless others show interest, or a specific time and place is set. If no time and place is set by 1 week before the con, I will choose a time and place for it.

Character Café :drink:

I'm sure most of you are familiar with Ouran High School Host Club. The idea also comes from modern Cosplay Cafés, where girls (and less commonly, boys) cosplay characters and entertain paying guests. This is the basis of Mikomicon's Character Café!

Any cosplayer can come participate, whether to Host other attendees, or to drop in to talk! We'll have some tables set up with little candies or such, maybe some water. Hours will vary depending on how many people are interested in the Café, but for now hours are as you see them above.

Are you interesting in hosting in the Café? Please PM edo_oniichan (me) as soon as you can, so she can set up a tentative list of what characters will be available. You can host for as long or short as you'd like, depending on the interest in the Café! And of course, you can just drop in at the con and host if you'd like.

Shouldn't this be a more "hey, iI'm doing this,I'm sure other people are too" type of thing? That's usually how gatherings go...I'm bringing friends but I'm the only cosplayer and I KNOW there will be Death Note/Survival Horror/FMA people there...so I'd like to meet up with them but i'm not bringing any myself

You know what, that's a better idea. I'm too used to the whole "separate sign up threads", etc. I'll edit that right now~

With that in mind, can we have a Death Note Gathering Friday,Fullmetal Alchemist Gathering Saturday, and a Survival Horror Gathering Sunday? I'll get times and places soon. Is the con still in the plaza or have they moved it? I'll research spots and get back to you. ^_^

I believe it is still in the plaza. Hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday I can ride up to CSUN on my bike to take some pictures - I have work in the morning.

That would be fabby. i have an idea where to have them, but I don't know if it has a name. You know those really epic/cool stairs by where they had the panels and stuff?
( I didn't get too terribly acquianted with the place, I kept getting mauled by fangirls)

Yes, I know what you're talking about. ^^

I'm gonna try and get the pictures done tomorrow after my UCLA tour...or not, depending on how tired I am. Working 8-hour shifts at a retail store unpacking boxes + UCLA walking tour = unhappy cosplayer.

I'll get it by Sunday, I promise. Cos I have to go down to pick up stuff from CSUN anyways.

Keep posting, I'm watching. ;3

Sure! I'll put it for Saturday for now, but I'm sure you can figure the rest out later. ^^

Also, if some gatherings don't have locations by Mikomicon, I'll just randomly assign them. :3

UPDATE: Don't forget to check the first post of this thread, as it's updated regularly!

NARUTO GATHERING:
With the addition of the Rock Wall this year we thought that the Naruto cosplayers could get in some great shots. I got a great photo of a Naruto at AX a couple of years ago climbing a palm tree in front of the Anaheim Convention Center, can't find it now :? So besides the gathering we will also run some races for the cosplayers interested. All participants will need to wear a safety harness that fits around your waist and thighs.

We are working on the details of the gathering and welcome any input for this first in convention history.
What do you think about this event?

I'd love have a Devil May Cry Gathering!
I'm not sure what area, but I like a lot of the sets of stairs around the area. : D
I'd also have to check and see how many cosplayers are going and what times are good for them. :3
We'll see I guess.

Edo Oniichan, why was the Death Note gathering moved?? I had everything planned perfectly cuz I'm cosplaying as Naruto, so I could do Misa Friday and Naruto Saturday, then the Kingdom Hearts gathering Sunday...I know you said the list is final now...but...Gaah!

edo_oniichan
09-17-2008, 02:31 PM
I'm really sorry to put you out, Kistune! But I'd gotten a few PMs and a few people from my school approached me saying they couldn't go Friday. >< It screwed up my cosplay schedule as I too had planned Light for Friday, so now I gotta change halfway through... 3:<

If you want, I can move it to another time on Saturday if that's easier. :)

Rin Kitsune
09-17-2008, 07:10 PM
Thanks for the offer, but I have to be Rin Sohma in the morning and we're all at a friend's house for the weekend, so I can't just go back to my room and change like I normally do...So I can only carry one extra cosplay on me during the day. I'm really small, despite the fact I'm almost 21, so I can't carry as much as I'd like to >.< But again, thanks for trying ^.^ We're gonna do the Death Note gathering...BE LIGHT!! Go ahead and do Light-kun cuz I'm gonna be at the DN gathering as Misa!!

edo_oniichan
09-17-2008, 07:34 PM
Alright, will do. I gotta come in to set up at 8 anyways, so by 4 I'll be hot and sweaty and ew. Changing might not be that bad of an idea.

Rin Kitsune
09-17-2008, 08:31 PM
Haha I feel your pain...that's why I usually do to characters a day, so that I don't get all blek. Any word about a Furuba gathering though??

edo_oniichan
09-17-2008, 08:33 PM
I don't think there's one up there. Wanna propose one? I extended the time until the end of today, just so we're safe. :3

I'd just like to extend my thanks to all the wonderful people who helped out at the Character Café and everyone who came even for a few minutes!

And now to the Con Pic thread :D
