Any Bleach cosplayers out there?!!! I went back on my word and I'm organizing two photoshoots (info below) .There is already a thread about this on the Ohayocon forums, so we already have some cosplayers!

As I've said there, this is just a mass group/photoshoot, so doubles, triples, even quads of characters are FINE! Don't let the fact that someone else is cosplaying your character put you off.

Photoshoots:
Friday: 7:30pm at the bottom of the Atrium Stairs

Saturday: 11:30am same location

So far we have:

Ichigo
Bankai Ichigo
Rukia (school uiform)
Orihime
Ishida
Unohana Retsu: Me
Tousen Kaname
Hisage Shuuhei
Hitsugya Toushirou
Matsumoto Rangiku
Kusajika Yachiru
Kurotshuchi Mayuri
Kurotshuchi Nemu:
Urahara Kiske:
Ichimaru Gin
Byakuya Kuchiki
Abarai Renji
Soi Fong
Aizen Sousuke
Hinamori Momo
Kyouraku Shunsui
Ise Nanao
random shinigami
Female strawberry

We'd love to hear from as many cosplayers as we can, so break out those Bleach characters and lets show those Naruto cosplayers that they're not the only ones who can make massive groups!! :bigtu: (j/k)

I'll be in Artist Alley with a friend and we're going as Orihime & Rukia (school uni's) and as Matsumota & Nanao-chan...

we haven't picked a day so I've been keeping an eye out for photoshoots (at otakon we picked the wrong cosplay for every single day... it was sad...)

SO we'll be there!

Yay! That's exciting. And you know, we don't have a Nanao-chan or Matsumoto for the shoot yet, so you guys might wanna wear them. So far it looks like Friday will be the day, but that might change.

Good thing I checked out this forum. Me and my boyfriend have been to Ohayocon twice (this will be our third year going) and we've both decided to go as bleach cosplayers we will be going as (my boyfriend) Kyouraku Shunsui and myself as Ise Nanao.
So a photoshoot on Friday huh? That will be interesting.......I would prefer Saturday cause.....well it is busy for a reason (because more people tend to show up on Saturday).
As for advice on where the photoshoot should be held? I definatly would suggest the large steps going up to the main ballroom (their's tons of space and their's tons of stairs enough for a very very large group. It's where the Naruto photoshoot was last year. Can't wait to be their....Yay.......'runs to go work on cosplays'

Oh good, someone who's been to Ohayocon! Sounds like the stairs is going to be the place. As for Saturday...hmm, you are right about more people being at the con....we'll have to take a vote when we get closer. If we do it Saturday, again, it will have to be early so as not to interfer with all the things that are going on, and there are lots, but Saturday is beginning to sounds better now that I think of it. Anyway, it's still early, and nothing's been decided yet.

Yay! I'm glad you looked and that you'll be there! Good luck with your cosplays!

Well, the group I'm in is pretty large. I mean, I think we have at least 13 people in ours alone that I know of. And we're doing it Friday....so yeah.

Ok, it's still early but I thought since we have had some discrepencies so far on a day, that I'd put the poll up early. ^_^

When voting please think of all possible outcomes as far as group sizes, when you're cosplaying, the size of the convention, etc. If you can delay your vote until you're sure of the day you'd like, please do. It's really hard to set these things up when we have mass amounts of people changing their minds at the last minute. -_- Again, just because it's up doesn't mean you have to vote now, unless you're absolutely sure.

From what I've seen so far, I'm planning on this group being big, so I'm trying to be as organized as possible so we don't have confusion/upset cosplayers as I've seen/been involved with before. We want as many people to be there as can be and we hope to make sure we don't leave those who really want in out.

Thanks guys!

either Fri or Sat can work for us! We're only a pair so even if we have to plan to change really quick we could make that work too!

I'll be Ishida at the con so I'll try to join the photoshoot as long as it doesn't interfere with the panels I'm in. ^_^

Thanks Mandy! The Ohayocon forums have been down for awhile, so I haven't been able to see what's going on over there. ;_;

How are the costumes coming guys? I had a stroke of genuis and I might try to do an Unohana cosplay, but that looks like it probably won't happen. XD I think in total we have all but 4 captains and 5 vice captains, which I think is pretty damn cool.

It's been set officially for Nanao-chan and I! the rest of the groups we're cosplaying are going to be Saturday (SDK) and Sunday (Scryed)!!!

So it looks like my vote in the poll is Friday! I do hope it ends up working for more people that way! I'm looking forward to meeting all of you~ and I can't WAIT to see all your costumes >.< only 5 more weeks! *dies*

Ok guys, we talked about this on the Ohayocon forums and decided that the photoshoot is going to be Friday at 7:30pm at the Atrium stairs. If anyone has major problems with this say so here.

If we have enough interest we'll go ahead and have another shoot on Saturday, because there is a slim chance I may no be able to make the friday shoot. ;_; If for some reason I can't make it there is another person who will step up, so don't worry about that, besides, we're all competant people, I'm sure worst case everyone can organize themselves.

So hope to see everyone at the shoot and good luck on all your cosplays!!!

Just a location confirmation, not a bump. The Atrium Stairs are the big ones when you first enter the convention center, correct? I've never been to the con, so I wouldn't know my way of of a paper bag there. ;_;

Unohana is coming together! YAY! Btw, mandy_chan or whomever, where are you guys meeting on friday/what time for the captains group? I'll need to know so I can join up with you guys.

I honestly have noooo idea unfortunately. I'll have to talk to everyone and get back to you XD Its hard organizing/knowing what's going on when there's so many people. But I imagine we're all probably just going to be hanging around the con as we get there (since some of them live like an hour away where as I live about 6) in costume.

Sounds great! I put you as a buddy on my AIM list, and my aim name is the same as my username here, so when it gets closer to Ohayo time I'll try and get ahold of someone. ^_^

I really hate double posting, but this thread is kind of activity-less, so I guess it can't be helped.

Anyway, I've changed the 1st post with the updated information and we are now officially going to have another shoot on Saturday in the same location as the Friday one, so, to this effect, we need to decide on a time. Going with the times that other groups are having their shoots times such as 11am, 2pm, and 4pm have been suggested. Usually Saturdays are really busy, so earlier will probably have the least probablility of interfering with events/etc that people want to go to.

So, input will be gratefully appreciated and as soon as we have a set time I'll post so EBK can put it on the sticky. Thanks guys!

I will definitely try to make it. ^^

I'll be cosplaying Soi Fong on Friday or Saturday (depending what my other costumes end up being). I really don't know much about Bleach though (only seen the first 3 eps as they were first released). ^^;; I just really like the charater designs so I decided to make a costume on a whim.

I'm only finished the wig (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=548900) so far, but hopefully I won't end up procrastinating too much and not getting it done. ^^;;

I'm going to attempt (if I can find a hakama tutorial that's in super easy laymens terms that I can understand ;_; ) to make a Yachiru costume for myself, and an Urahara outfit for my boyfriend, so we'll definately be there if I get everything done in time :D

Yay infinite numbers of Yachiru and Urahara! (although infinite numbers of either is a rather frightening mental image..)

Ok, so how does everyone feel about 11:30am for the second shoot on Saturday? It's early enough that it won't interfere with much, and none of the other groups have taken this time slot yet, so we need to decide pretty quick. I think Friday is a good time limit, if no one says anything else I'll tell EBK to put us up for it.

Same location too, we can always move up and down those stairs if we wish.

Amy the Yu: I saw that wig, it's really great! I'm looking forward to seeing all of your Soi Fong.

Hikaru0: lol, I'm surprised at how popular Yachiru is. As far as the pants go, if you're still having trouble I can attempt to explain how I did mine, I kind of experimented, but they're really easy to do. Just PM me and I'll explain them to you. And btw, I just now realised that you guys did that hilarious skit at Katsu '05!!! My kudos for that one, we still laugh to this day.

double posting again! I'm so sorry! The 2nd shoot is now confirmed since no one seemed to have a problem (or voiced so). So:

2nd Photoshoot at 11:30am on Saturday at the bottom of the Atrium Stairs.

and just a few things to add before I go:

- Please be as on time as possible, 10-15 minutes late MAX (I know people have to change). I'll be there 10 minutes early both days so as no location confusions.

- It'd be nice if people could make both shoots, but it's definitely not expected of anyone. Be at one and I'll be the happiest person ever!

It doesn't matter when for me. I'll be going as Shinigami Rukia, and hopefully I'll be able to bring along my Zanpaktou if they allow it on the plane. Let's hope so.

Wow, it looks like we're going to have a really great turn out for the photoshoots, so with 2 days left I wish everyone who isn't done yet luck on finishing and I'll see everyone at the con!

Btw, I hear there's going to be a Bleach panel at the con, I have no idea who it is who's hosting it, but it sounds interesting.
