Inspired by the grand staircase at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel, Anime
Weekend Atlanta would like to have "the biggest photo op of cosplayers at a
con." So, there will be a big group gathering at the grand staircase on
AWA's second day, at which everyone with a costume or a camera is welcome
to attend. It will be at 12 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27. Just show up a few
minutes early and be ready to pose or take pictures.

So no one is confused about the location: this will be in the atrium of
AWA's hotel at the big quadruple staircase. There's also a big staircase at
the neighboring Cobb Galleria Centre, but you'll be in the wrong place for
the cosplay shoot if you go there - make sure you head to the hotel atrium.

If you have a _Javascript-enabled web browser which also is equipped with
the latest QuickTime plug-in, you can see the lobby by going to
http://www.marriott.com/DPP/propertyPage.asp?marshacode=ATLRB and clicking
on the "see this hotel in virtual reality" link.

Again, the big Anime Weekend Atlanta group cosplay gathering and photo
shoot will be on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 12 p.m. at the grand staircase in
the atrium of the Renaissance Waverly Hotel.

(This writer, who just confirmed the time and location with AWA staff,
would appreciate if cosplayers on this list would spread the word about
this event to other bulletin boards, forums and mailing lists.)

Ah yes, they have been trying to do this just to prove that cosplaying is here to stay and that for many it is the heart of a con.

I can't wait to see what actually happens!

We are going to have to change our Photoshoot time then. It just won't work w/two at the same time!

*LOL* You have to hear something funny. When I looked at the "other" forums to see if there was anything new, the last post said "AWA9 'the biggest'" then underneath, it said (Nightmare).

Just a little funny!

Maybe the cosplay.com people should stay a little after the regular picture is taken so we can have one to ourselves^_^

On that note: Who's going to be wielding the camera for the cosplay.com group pic? ^_^
