Alright, now is the time to start talking about meet-ups. I figured we could discuss it in a separate thread so we don't derail the big ol' costume discussion thread (also to keep from scouring the pages to see who will be at what con). I've noticed our sizes have grown large enough that we -will- see each other at cons, and it will be easier to arrange meet-ups so we can take photos.

Personally, I've never done official meet-ups and I know some cons try their best to organize these groups by time and location so one groups won't invade another's space.

I will list a few cons I've noticed some people discuss in the main thread, and if you will be in attendance please list which cons you're attending, your costume, what day you will wear it, and if there is any preferred time to meet. Costume listing isn't totally necessary, but if you're undecided (like me) about what to bring and you see someone has a costume you would love to couple with it is beneficial to know the costume roster.

If you have any suggestions to improve the OP by all means let me know :D

I've already mentioned this in the other big thread, but I'm going to start working on Miranda's new armor from the Appearance Pack DLC after it's released next week. I'm hoping to get it done in time for ACen this year.

Unfortunately, I don't think I can help with the dates or times for a photoshoot. I'm part of a skit that's during a panel, and since panels are not approved until a much later date, and you can't pick a time slot for them, I have no idea when that'll be. I just have to hope that if it is approved it doesn't clash with my other shoots. ><; I will do my best to make it to whatever day/time gets decided though!

As for a location, usually people pick depending on the estimated size or popularity of a series so that the location has enough room to accomodate all the cosplayers and photographers, but they also pick a spot that has scenery that fits the series. The cosplay gatherings "Stuff To Know" thread (http://www.acen.org/forums/index.php/topic/34794-stuff-to-know/) on the ACen forums has pictures of all the photoshoot locations.

Maybe one of the indoor locations, like the Lower Dome or East Indoor Wall would work? Those are a bit smaller areas, but there's also the Loading Docks Left or Loading Docks Right that are both outside. Those are definitely the biggest photoshoot areas in terms of size, and they look a little more, er, "industrial"?

I hope that helps some! :D Hopefully, other people will respond too and give you some more solid days and times!

Thanks shell! I took a look at those last week and I really like VII the lower done too! The only thing I'm afraid of when doing outdoor photos is the potential of rain. Our asaris would not be pleased xD I know they have a rain backup but I don't like it too much.
The front entrance is so nice <3 but it does say its hard for the point and shoot cameras. I personally think the smaller areas are fine since we would be a smaller group compared to something like a Kingdom Hearts meet or something.
I went ahead and added you to the list :D Just keep us updated!

Myself and Mishapenheart (I think she posted this in the ME thread) will be also attending Anime Central 2011.

Anytime is fine for us, for right now. Saturday during the day might be good.

Our group (Assuming everyone gets it done :P ):
-Samara (Mishapenheart)
-Miranda Loyalty (myself)
-Commander Shepard Male
-Tali
-Illusive Man
-Kasumi
-Jack (Possibly...)
-Thane (possibly)

Can't wait to see everyone! :D

updated the OP! Thanks everyone :D

edit: For Acen people...how do you feel about a late afternoon/evening meet? I was looking at the acen gathering list and they said anything mature has to be an evening time gathering. I don't think our costumes are mature rated (racy, etc), but the game content is. I'll have to ask cactus mama if she thinks we'd have to be an evening meet.

Hello! Brand new nooby nooberson here.
I'm going to have a go at making my first costume for Male Shepard (N7) for Gencon this year.
I'd say Saturday would be good too but it's hard to say what time yet as we don't know the events we'll be going to.

I'm blogging about my progress here if you're interested: http://projectsforthewin.blogspot.com/
Besides, blogging about it means I actually have to follow through with it!

Would be fun to all meet up.

I'll be in my white Miranda costume to fill out the trifecta at ACen! THREE MIRANDAS NO WAITING

Yessss! The Miranda Trifecta! :3 I absolutely need pictures with you guys!

I might be going to Otakon this year, and I'll bring my Miranda armor if I go. Once I know for sure, I'll make sure to let you guys know! It sounds like there's going to be a big group at Otakon too!

Oh awesome! Thanks so much for showing me this! That's great that the dome and east wall are pretty open all day! Which that is another thing to take in account--does anyone know what time the costume contest runs? I'm sure some people don't want to miss it so thats probably another time frame to work around x.x

I replied to your PM with the same info, but just in case! Here's what I found from the ACen forums on the Masquerade FAQ thread (http://www.acen.org/forums/index.php/topic/38329-2011-masquerade-faq-a-work-in-progress/):

"10. When is the masquerade?
Typically 6:00 pm on Saturday. If you're participating, we'll want you sooner -- probably at 4:30 (it depends on a variety of things which I don't know yet -- but I'll know by then)"

Also, I'm not sure I can complete Miranda in time for ACen. :( I've been having a lot of trouble getting the stuff I ordered off of the internet.

I think I'll have to sit out the ACen photoshoot and try to make it to Otakon. I'll check at my work this week and make sure that I can take that weekend off, and I'll let you guys know one way or another.

ACEN GATHERING UPDATE!

The gathering deadline was cut off due to an issue with event and panel organization. So while we did not have a consensus 100% met, I asked cactusmomma (gathering organizer) if we could have the East Lower Dome at 3pm on Saturday. She can't give a complete confirmation since the schedule got pretty full, but she said if we really wanted the dome for photos we could try at 5 or 7pm since the group at those times are a bit smaller.

Once there is word on if we have a scheduled spot, I will update the OP

I suppose this is a good time to segue into what I need to ask...

So, my friend and I are going to Acen this year, but she lives about 30min from the con so we opted out of a room. Mainly because I had some serious money troubles this year ($2000 car repairs in 4 month span) so I'm not able to afford a room and my friend can't spot a room for the both of us. I digress.

I was wondering if any Acen people would be able to let us use their bathroom on Saturday to paint ourselves as asari. We really don't want to drive in our asari suits and we're not sure we will have room in the con bathrooms to get ready. I'd be more than happy to share my airbrush machine and any reel creations or ben nye liquids for airbrushing (err but not sponges or anything that requires direct application, for health and safety sake).
Edit- I have someone who already responded, yaay! But if you need an airbrush machine I can always be happy to help, and the person who offered the bathroom said they don't need airbrushing.

Also, it is confirmed that our Acen meeting is 3 pm on Saturday at the East Indoor Wall.

cool and thank you! thats really nice of you to offer that! but um...so heres the problem...im a bit of a *cough* noob *cough*
I've never had to airbrush myself and never done full face makeup on myself (only makeup experience i have is doing my friends holloween zombie makeup) And i was wondering if i could get a few tips or hints...cuz if you let me use the airbrush that means I wont really get any practice time. D:
Its cool if ya dont wanna do that, I completely understand not wanting to deal with a noob

I'm pretty new to it, too xD I've only used it on fabric so on skin will be a bit different. But like I said, the middle of this month I'm going to be doing an asari skin test with my friend so I'll be sure to document it and try to give tips on my trial and error run xD

awesome! So you guys said you have somewhere to do this? if for some reason it doesnt work out you guys can prolly come in our room an do it :3

also do you have a type or brand of paint you recommend? also im ordering a headpiece through satine just wondering ((i think it said you did too?? hope im not wrong)) did you just use the same paint to color it as you did your facemakeup?

sorry bout all the questions but this fancy paint and latex and space'y ness are new too me @w@

Thanks Mishapen :3 I'll keep you updated!

I use Ben Nye magiccolor liquids for a base layer and shadows, and Snazaroo cake makeup for highlights. I actually use a mixture of latex paint and liquitex acrylics for the headpiece. To get the same color I put a patch of the skin color I will use on as a base color on my arm as reference when I'm painting my headpiece. I do have a Satine headpiece, you will love it :)

I have a video I made a while back where I go through fitting the headpiece and painting my face but I just haven't uploaded it...mainly because I goof in my makeup techniques xD But applying the headpiece and makeup takes about 2 hours (2.5 if you need to cover your torso or chest) without an airbrush. The tests I'll do this month will give me a better idea on how fast it will go with an airbrush.

We're about 48 days out from Acen! I hope everyone is getting ready.. :)

You're welcome :) I'm not sure about ben nye themselves, I order from http://www.stageandtheatermakeup.com/ and they get there in about a week or so. They are nice enough to even call if they are out of stock of what you ordered. I typically buy a base color, highlight color, and shadow color. I buy cosmic blue, white, and purple for shadows. In snazaroo I have white, royal blue, turquoise, and sky blue.

One 1oz bottle of each color you need is more than enough. I've done about 3 full face and partial torso covering with my paints and I haven't hit the halfway point of the bottle yet.

Did you order from stage and theatre? =\ Because I ordered from them early April and never got my stuff, either. I have no idea why, they kept good contact with me in the past and now there is no answer. I had to dispute the purchase with my bank.
If you need to use my ben nye paints, I can always run them by you. But, I can't fix my stupid airbrush machine--it keeps clogging no matter how much I dilute the paint >< so it would have to be the slow application method D:

If you can find them, buy snazaroo makeup cakes. I used only those for my first asari and the makeup stayed on for about 3 hours. I have white, sky blue, and dark blue.

We have been moved from the lower east wall to the Dome area. Not sure why, but everyone who planned to be at the east wall was moved. We will share the same time as Harahui people, so look for them and we'll be there too xD Same time, 3 pm! Thanks Shell for letting me know!

Hey guys! (This is "shell", btw. I've been trying to consolidate all my online usernames to this one. Coscom doesn't allow you to change usernames, so I'm starting from scratch!)

A lot of my shots turned out blurry or too dark, but still got some pretty good ones!

I've never been to Baltimore, so I don't know the weather or any locations. I do know that we'll get better lighting outdoors, but with the full suit on, the armor acts like ACTUAL insulation, lol. I'd be able to tough it out for about 15 or so minutes at most, depending on the weather.

The 10th floor would be great. After that, I also recommend the top atrium Marriott courtyards, to the left and right of where the blood drive usually is. They're in the shade, have a nice breeze, and a sweet metal backdrop to shoot with.

Edit: Kind of off-topic, but I finished the M-5 Phalanx Resin kits. I'll have one for myself for DragonCon, but I still have enough time to pull some more if anyone going would like one before the con! If anyone is interested, I can post some pics of them.

We might have bonus Jack show up (so we have a squad!), and pending the hurricane, a few Shepards as well.

I'd love to get a photoshoot going outside in natural light at 4 PM. We can all meet each other, take photos, etc, and then go have fun for the rest of the night.

I'll be there as soon as I get out of the costume contest; I have to judge and it should end around 5.

I've registered with London MCM Expo event http://www.londonexpo.com Fringe events (their organisation and publicity for any groups/meetups/etc)
I'm hoping to have the meet on saturday afternoon around 2pm (Unless this clashes with anything guest Alli Hillis is doing as i know any ME fan will want to attend that). This will give all those who are doing prosthetics/makeup the chance to get it all done in time. Once confirmed I'll post again

I was at DragonCon and like an idiot I didn't check here to see if there was a meetup.
not that I have a MassEffect costume...yet.
But I had been sent specifically to get Tali pics by a friend.
I did see a few ME cosplays around and get a few random shots, and you all looked wonderful!
Maybe next year. Maybe by then I'll have the Kal'Reegar costume (that is in concept stage now) done.
Maybe.

YES!! New York Comic Con is a go! Me and the boyfriend got us a pair of three day passes! My Shep hoodie is going to be made instead of bought (which will probably net a savings of $50 USD when done), so sorry ahead of time for the shoddy-ness.

Ive added a potential time to the meet at London Expo

Sat 29th Oct at 2pm. If weather is good- on the steps outside entrance (DLR end) If weather is bad , then im thinking somewhere in the underground carpark - it has potential for good industrial style backdrops for photos.

Not heard back from Expo Fringe events yet...:(

Blerg! Already posted in the general cosplay thread but here it goes again. I'll be going to Megacon, Feb 17-17, Orlando, FL as Shadow Broker Liara on Saturday and might get casual FemShep out for Sunday.

Megacon has the voice of male Shep as a guest, so I'm sure there have to be more ME cosplays there!

Do you guys think an Asari Spectre costume be good? I'm a guy though but slim. I love the Asari so I'm thinking of making an Asari Spectre costume. If I can't make an Asari Spectre costume I would make N7 Spectre costume.

I never cosplayed before, those are my current ideas. Im asking if anyone know any place or have Instructions on N7-Spectre armor or Asari? Thank you. That be a thanks. :)

I type this in a wrong Topic, sorry about that. When I do complete a costume I will come back. I'm thinking of going to NYCC this year which I live close to. I hope I do go, I never been too any Cons yet.

Hey, I plan on going to NYCC this year as well! I'm doing Shepard in her N7 hoodie, and hopefully two other cosplays.

Not sure if it is correct to just blurt this out... but, oh well. :P

I am going to Gencon all 4 days, 2 of which I will be costumed in my latest suit of Quarian armor.

I *might* be coming up to GenCon tomorrow, and if I do I'll be in FemShep. I'll keep an eye out for you if I can make it!
