OK the list is done. There aren't that many gatherings, so I've made some suggestions that I hope most people can agree with meeting up at. If not, then no worries. Hope to see everyone tomorrow and have a lot of fun!

If you need photos of the area, I can do it since I live about ten minutes from the convention center. I can probably get it done by the end of the month. Right now, they're still cleaning up from the Grand Prix race and a lot of the area still looks like hell.

Just tell me what you need and I'll see what I can do.

Sure thing Super! That'd be a big help. I may just have the gatherings posted here and then copied over to the PMX forum since not many people frequent the PMX forum, but I'll see what's most convenient or if Shogun has some idea's.

BTW, it's not a central site, but would costumers like it if we set aside a special area like the Rainbow Lagoon for photos? Or does everyone prefer the area between LBCC and the Hyatt?

I'm sure any area would be good. Its just that the area between the LBCC and the Hyatt is like the most common place everyone will be going back and forth from. So whatever works.

I was hoping that the Rainbow Lagoon area would be used more because it really is a pretty area. There are a lot of possibilities for this area. The area between the LBCC and Hyatt was very useful when AX was there because of the stairways. They were good for very large gatherings. That area isn't as picturesque, but it's practical and convenient.

shogun

Well, I think people will meet in that in between area no matter what. Just tell us what you think works best and we can try to schedule accordingly. (Unless a wedding pushes us out of the lagoon!)

I haven't been able to take pictures of the convention site yet because my camera is out of commission at the moment. The parts needed for repair finally arrived this week so I hope to get it back sometime next week. I definitely want to get it done before Fanime.

Okay. I got the photos done. I took a lot of photos of various locations, even if some things seemed out of the way. I wanted to use plenty of angles and show as much of the different areas as possible so that people can also get some ideas for individual photos as well. I also wanted it to help people who have never been to this location before to see the proximity of the locations to the various hotels so that they can get an idea about the walking distance. I can always go back and add some stuff later if necessary.

The photos are here (http://super-no1.com/longbeachcc/)

Ready! Set! Plan!

Yeah, I ran into a few weddings while I was there. Some of the folks thought that I was the wedding photographer. :eeek:

Plus, as you develop the locations for the gatherings, do you want us to point to someplace on your site? Or do you want us to try to keep things updated on ours? It seems that pointing outside the site would let you change things quickly.

Awww. Those pics bring back memories of previous Anime Expos. I doubt I can afford PMX this year unless a big guest I like makes me go crazy and fly out to it. >_>

It depends on what people want once this gets more traffic. We can get a better feel for what people need once they start posting here. In the past, these type of systems have worked fairly well and it's enough information for people to make their decisions. As long as people know where to find the photos, they're pretty good at figuring out things on their own.

I wanted to do these pages to help all attendees of PMX. Right now, we just need input from them. I'm always open to suggestions.

There is going to be a Jrock/Jpop gahtering for all fans and cosplayers of Jrock/Jpop. We'll probably meet somewhere in the lobby of the Hyatt at around 1 pm on Sunday the 4th. We will be taking photos, posing, and possibly going over to the mall for food. We'll have a vote on that when the time comes.

It's hard to decide right now if you want to eat at 1 pm for a day over a month from now. XD

I guess you can add the Bleach gathering around Noon on Sunday now, since its getting close.

Though would people be waiting in line around noon for seats to the masqurade?

That's true too. Hmmm...the masq is due to go from 3pm-6pm, so we "could" have it afterwards, but then it might be too late in the day. Saturday afternoon might be a better time slot.

You can cosplay where ever you want to. If ya want, try starting a thread for a random cosplay gathering, that way anyone who doesn't have a group will have one.

I...think you're missing something. There's nothing really to join in on, certainly not on this thread. O.o This isn't a "hang out for all cosplayers" thing, this is just a list where people announce their already organized gatherings (based on a particular game/anime/genre/franchise). These gatherings are organized and scheduled in other threads for people to see, and then once the details are figured out, it's handed to Squall so he can stick it on a list. Nothing more than that.

It's really just a tool for cosplayers to meet up with other cosplayers more easily. There's no permission involved or even necessary for public gatherings.

Squall
08-24-2005, 07:39 PM
Thanks for the clarification evilbishounen.

Also another reminder, I've extended the gathering list deadline to next tuesday, Aug.30th at 10pm. So if ya want your gathering to appear on the list, please post it here so I can add it. After the deadline, no other gatherings will be added.

Thanks!

Thanks evilbishounen! that clarrifies something in my mind. I'd love to meet you guys and gals more. So hope I could join like in Sunday (Sept. 4th), I'd be honored to meet American cosplayers and see how they do they're own ways in cosplaying. Yeah, its just the same with costume making and other stuff but I'd still want to see the differences.

So Squall how could we catch up with you all at Sunday?

Hi Wayne, I don't know if this counts or not but it's kinda cosplay-related and I know a lot of people here have Super Dollfies so Aimee is having a Super Dollfie panel followed by a Takarazuka panel on Saturday as seen on the schedule -

http://www.pacificmediaexpo.com/2005/schedule.htm

The dollfie panel/meet up is at 1-2pm Saturday and Takarazuka is 2-3pm in the same room right after on Saturday. There is going to be dollfie meet up that usually has a lot of Gothic Lolitas and we could have a Takarazuka cosplay meet up if anyone's interested in that too. Would that be okay to add to the list?
