Thank you so much for starting this. ^_^ I was hoping someone would.

http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=20902 this is the thread used to two groups that I've got going. One is for Count Cain, Friday, Late Afternoon/Night (haven't quite figured out the time yet) and location not decided yet. Then on Saturday, Various Kaori Yuki Characters for the Morning, Location TBA.

http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=19035 Possible Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne for Sunday. Not sure if this is going to be an actual group yet or not, depending on if I can get people to say if they're going to do it or not.

http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=25411 Tentative J-Rock group for Friday morning. Location TBA.

Will update as it gets closer to the con and all. It's still a bit early so we haven't really decided the details for any of them yet. ^^;

12-17-2003, 07:00 PM
Friday at 4-5pm shall be the Naruto shoot. This shoot is limited as it is only ONE per character allowed, no doubles. Location is pending.

Has anyone set up a time for a possible One Piece shoot? Maybe Friday morning....

12-18-2003, 03:41 AM
Updated, with obvious holes, which is fine.

However, I think when the time comes to finalize the schedule (a day or so before my flight). Any gatherings that still list TBA in the time or location, I'm going to remove from the list. I'll give plenty of warning ahead of time though.

Also, I was a bit surprised that people are ignoring my requests already, so let's see if putting that part in red will help...

Saturday @ 11 am - The offical Dance Dance Revolution photoshoot! Area is TBA.. maybe by the main event arera because our group (along w/ a DDR machine prop) is going to be HUGE.

12-18-2003, 11:54 AM
Saturday Naruto photoshoot with multiples of each character. 3-4pm

12-19-2003, 08:31 AM

Soul Calibur/Soul Calibur 2 photoshoot~ friday afternoon, looks like 2pm, and will meet at the lobby/escalator area.


12-24-2003, 10:22 PM
There will be a Guilty Gear Photo Shoot Friday at 5pm. please add it to the list.


12-24-2003, 10:33 PM
I think the list is up to date as of right now.

However, please try to give me a location if you can, or at least TBA so that I know you're not forgetting it.

Also another reminder, I'm going to be removing any gathering that still has TBA in the time or location, so please keep that in mind and don't forget. You all have a whole 2 months to work it out. ;-)

Happy Holidays everyone! Don't go overboard on the eggnog. ;-)

12-25-2003, 10:36 AM
I'm sorry, the location is TBA (sugestions welcome, I was thinking maybe we could meet near the chairs in front)


12-25-2003, 10:55 AM
We figured out the time and location for the J-Rock gathering. (at least for now, always subject to change) It's going to be 11:30 am, bottom level near the escalators and pay phones area.

12-25-2003, 08:58 PM
Yu-Gi-Oh photoshoot @ 7pm on Friday @ TBA! Just thought you'd like to know ^____^.

12-25-2003, 09:29 PM
okay for Inuyasha I think its at ... the bottom level.. ballroom right if I remember?...

Looks like we'll be a pretty group so it should be hard to miss us ^^

12-28-2003, 08:17 PM
Just a minor note, it looks like there's gonna be a X-2 gathering as well. Would the two Final Fantasy gatherings considering merging? Or maybe doing them back to back? I'm sure it would make things eaiser on everyone. :)

Just a suggestion. :)

http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=23296 - Ranma 1/2 cosplay group. Saturday morning @ 9:30AM. The pending location is near artists alley.

12-30-2003, 09:42 AM
The yu-gi-oh group is meeting at the same place as the Cosplay photoshoot. ^_^

01-03-2004, 10:49 AM
I'm thinkit would be best if we move the Guilty Gear photo shoot to saturday, as there are many allready happening on Fri. I was thinking Sat @ 2pm right after the Cosplay rehersal is over, and right after the Cosplay.com photo shoot. So 2:00pm - 3:00 pm @ Bottom floor of the HYATT outside main events (wide-open area) would be a very an easy time location for everyone.

Let me know if this works for everyone.


01-03-2004, 09:02 PM

The X-2 Photoshoot is merging with the FF/KH shoot.

The location for the Ranma shoot is no longer pending, and shall be @ the artist alley.

01-05-2004, 07:29 PM
After much debate the Shaman King photoshoot will take place directly after the Cosplay.com photoshoot in the same area on Saturday.

01-12-2004, 05:59 AM
The Friday Naruto shoot will be held in the Lobby. Again, unlike Saturday's shoot there are NO doubles allowed!

01-13-2004, 11:45 PM
Post Final Fantasy 11 in the possible section! ^_^ I don't know how many people are dressing up from it yet so I don't know if it's actually going to be done. I'd like it to though :P Thanks! ^___^

01-13-2004, 11:51 PM
There's a combined Final Fantasy and X-2 gathering already, you might wanna consider combining with that group, though you don't have to. :)

01-15-2004, 11:06 AM
Yeah I was thinking of that too. So far we only have 2 cosplayers for the FFXI group, so I might merge it with FF gathering.

01-21-2004, 09:50 AM
CLAMP cosplayers photoshoot on Sunday at 11am by Main Events

I notced something was missing from the list... As a representative of the DDR Cosplay group, we have decided to have our photoshoot stationed in the Main Events Hallway (not in the room, but nearby that area).

DDR Participants: Please check your Private Messages.

That is all. Thank You.

01-26-2004, 09:49 AM
Ok, my groups have finally made a decision. Count Cain will be Friday, 4pm (subject to change) at the pay phone area on the lower level. Kaori Yuki will be Saturday, 11am, same area.

And I suppose you can go ahead and take off the Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne possibility since none of the people have contacted me about that. So I doubt there will be a group.

01-26-2004, 05:36 PM
Ok, I believe everything is up to date as of this post. Please tell me if I'm missing anything.

Also, as the time is getting near, hopefully everyone can help me fill in all the TBAs.

A week before the con, I'm going to remove all the entries that still have TBA somewhere, either the time or place. Since, without those things, it's *really* had to find the group. ;-)

I hope everyone who went to Ohayocon had fun! :) I hope to see some of you at Katsucon. :)

Hey Ziggy! *waves to Ziggy* ^^;

I may just pop by at that FFX-2 gathering. This will be my 1st Katsu & I have a brand new version of Paine all set for it.
My favorite dressphere to be exact.....he he ^_~

01-29-2004, 04:51 AM
That's fantastic! I can't wait to see you again and your new costume. :D

If time permits, I'll try to have a FFX-2 costume too, but I bet no one will recognize it. :)

01-29-2004, 11:08 AM
I am sad to say that I am not gonna bother trying to do the Prince of Tennis photoshoot due to lack of interest. Plus due to the fact 2 people who were supposed to come to the con and be in the group cannot attend. Only definites are me & my boyfriend, no point after that.

Little Star
01-29-2004, 04:26 PM
That's awesome Ziggy! It wouldn't by any chance be Baralai would it? ^^
I loove his costume & you would make such an awesome Baralai! *hint hint* ^_~

01-30-2004, 02:48 PM
Hm, that sailor moon group possibility would be good for me and my roomie and Zoi and Kunzite.. however Im a dealer so I wont be available until AFTER it closes. I doubt there will be gatherings then, aye?

EDIT: *realizes this information has already been stated*
I'm an idiot. :thumbsup:

02-02-2004, 03:53 PM
Ok, let's keep this thread on topic. Only post if you are updating me on any gatherings or if I've made any mistakes.

For instance, I moved my conversation with Little Paine to PM since it was off topic.

Oh and come on people, help me fill in the TBAs in the gatherings list. Again, a few days before the con I'm going to remove all listings that still have TBAs.

Thanks and I hope to see everyone at Katuscon! :)

Do you have a location yet?

02-05-2004, 01:13 AM
Ziggy, we've moved the cosplay.com photo to 2:30 since the original time conflicts with the Masquerade practice. I went ahead and edited the post.

02-05-2004, 04:48 AM
Cool beans. I'll be there. :)

02-05-2004, 02:33 PM
Post-Masquerade gathering - immediately following the Masq (Sat ~midnight). For any Masq participants or people interested in Masq-related stuff (how people came up with ideas, funny rehearsal stories, etc). We're meeting in the Green Room (it'll be a room near the stage and should be on the map) and will head somewhere, perhaps food-oriented from there. Here's the original thread: http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=26345&page=1

Ok, I think I'm up to date as of this post.

There's a little more then a week left for Katsucon!

So I want to fill in those TBAs.

I'll also stop updating this thread on Tuesday Feb. 10 since I'd need to pack and get ready. :)

Here's a list of gatherings I still need info for. If I don't get it by Feb 10, I'm removing it from the gatherings list.

2:00 - Soul Calibur/Soul Calibur 2 @ TBA
8:00pm - SNK Gathering @ TBA

12:00pm - Otaku Royale @ TBA

Wow, actually that's not too bad. I should pay attention to my own lists once and a while. :) Anyway, give me those locations folks.

Ziggy, do you mind if I posted a .doc version of the photoshoots so that people can print them out and take it with them?

02-05-2004, 11:28 PM
the lunar group has moved to 3pm due to change in c.com shoot time. ^^ thanks ziggy!

02-07-2004, 06:14 AM
Ok, I'm going to go ahead and plug my own gathering. :)

Since Hidenori Matsubara (the character designer for Sakura Taisen) has a panel on Saturday, the Sakura Taisen/Sakura Wars (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?p=618014) gathering will be:

Day: Saturday
Time: 12:30am - 1:00pm, 2:00pm-2:30pm (30 min before and 30 min after the Matsubara panel)
Place: Outside Washington 1 Panel room

Hope to see everyone there. :)

Ranma: That won't be nessessary, anyone can click on the #1 in the upper left corner of the first post in the thread. That will open a window with just that post and can easily print it from there.

I will also be taking copies of the final gatherings list and posting it on any bulletin boards or whatever at the con.

True.... But I just wanted to make things a wee bit easier. ^_^

02-07-2004, 01:00 PM

Would it be a horrible sin to add all Squaresoft characters in the Final Fantasy gathering? Does anyone object?

02-07-2004, 02:31 PM
Trying to get a group of zombie, or undead/undead hunting type cosplay together, you know like:
Resident Evil, VHD, Hellsing..
And not to exclude non-relates such as:
Evil Dead, Ghostbusters, NOLD, Tomb Raider, Indiana Jones, etc...

Just to have a generic btu rooted gathering of "Good Vs Evil" as far as the netherrealm is concerened.

02-07-2004, 10:47 PM
Tristian: You might want to ask them in their Final Fantasy thread:


Oh do you have a time for the Fruity Lolita gathering on Sunday? :)

nachtiis: Just give me time and place and I'll list it.

02-09-2004, 06:43 PM

So the time changed for the C.com shoot? Is the KH time going to change? ::Hopes.::

02-09-2004, 06:48 PM
Last call for time and place!

Eeek, it's Monday already. I believe I've just kicked into panic mode. %-/

Anyway, come on people help me fill in the blanks on the gatherings list. I'm leaving Wednesday night so I will probably finalize the list sometime Wednesday, after that no more updates on the gatherings list.

I still need info for the following:

2:00 - Soul Calibur/Soul Calibur 2 @ TBA
8:00pm - SNK Gathering @ TBA

Early Morning/Afternoon - Fruity Lolita @ TBA
12:00pm - Otaku Royale @ TBA

I hope to see everyone there! :)

02-09-2004, 07:58 PM
Alright... time for the KH/FF thing may be changed to 1. We'll see if anyone objects in the thread.

Stephanos: I'm sorry, but the gatherings list is for cosplay gatherings. Have fun at your lunch though.

02-11-2004, 03:36 AM
I'm gonna go out on a limb here since only one person has suggested a place for the Soul Calibre 1/2 cosplay group....and he/she has a good place since the lobby and the bottom floor are taken...then perhaps...the SECOND floor where the dealer's room entrance was last year but on the other side near the wall of payphones and mirrors.

02-11-2004, 04:09 AM
FYI I deleted a few posts that were very off topic.

Ok, thanks Nietsche, there's only two gatherings left that have TBAs:

8:00pm - SNK Gathering @ TBA

12:00pm - Otaku Royale @ TBA

This is the last call for filling in time and place, including making any time changes. Please tell me if I've missed anything.

I think... the Final Fantasy group was thinking about moving the time? Has that been decided?

I'm probably going to stop updating and make the list *final* tomorrow (Wed) at 6pm Pacific time. This will give me time to make any updates and print out a few copies to distribute at the con.

<sounds horn> Last call everyone. :)

02-11-2004, 08:24 AM
Xenogears (and Xenosaga, if there are any cosplayers this con) - Friday, 12 PM, bottom level.

Ok, it's now 5:18 pacific time. I'm going check in one more time around 6pm my time, so if anyone has any additional changes please post here or PM me.

I hope to see everyone in a few days. :)

I think the only thing left is the Otaku Royale gathering, if I don't get a place for that by 6pm, I'm gonna drop it from the list. So hurry and give me the place of the gathering. :)
