View Full Version : Cosplay.com Member Gathering @ Anime LA

Hey everyone,

I plan to host a cosplay.com big-group photoshoot at Anime LA 2006. :) This huge gathering of cosplay.com members & non-member cosplayers is free for anyone who wishes to attend. Cosplay,com has hosted these big gathering photoshoots before at cons like AnimeExpo, Animagic, Otakon, Fanimecon, etc. and it would be fun to have one at Anime LA in January.

How it works: Simply show up at the time & place in a costume of your choice (anime, video-game, J-rock/EGL, or original) and when it's time I'll gather everyone up and you'll line up in an orderly fashion together, so that you're not blocking anyone and that everyone can be seen, and then you simply pose for 5-10 minutes until the photographers are done taking pics. ;) This gathering is open to anyone wearing a costume, and you don't neccesarily need to be a member of cosplay.com, so if you have friends who are cosplayers please invite them to join the gathering also.

Here's the proposed information for the gathering:

DAY: Saturday, Janurary 28th
TIME: 2:00pm
LOCATION: The brick-steps in the outdoor courtyard (see picture below)
REQUIREMENTS: Must wear a costume

Depending on the weather during that day & time, we may move it inside if it's raining during that time.

Please reply if you plan to make it, and name which costume you'll be wearing if you like. Hope to see everyone there in January!! :skidude2:

Hopefully I'll be able to make it! Not sure what time our TeniMyUSA show will be so hopefully it won't conflict. It's been a while since there's been a cosplay.com gathering hehe.

Sana-chan: The 2:00pm gathering time can be changed, as I don't want it to conflict with other gatherings so that more people can make it to the c.com gathering. Please keep me posted on when your POT show is.

And it HAS been a while since there was a So.CA cosplay.com gathering.. Animagic 2004.. :thumbsup:

*excited* I'll definately letcha know when our TeniMyUSA show is! It should be fun!! It's only about 20 minutes or so =) the time and such though is still TBA though T_T, but I'd really, really like to make it to this c.com gathering hehe as well~.

It's really been so long! I can understand though why there really hasn't been many lately, but this'll be enjoyable I'm sure ^^.

Probably because myself & Admin have been really busy taking general photos and/or photoshoots that neither of us have time to gather the cosplay.com members together for the big-group photoshoot. Animagic this year was pretty hectic for me, and as for AX.. hehe notimewhatsoever at that con. :thumbsup: I think Anime LA 2006 will be a goodcon to mark the return of the cosplay.com gathering to a So.CA con. ;) Just hope for nice weather..

Are you sure those small steps will be big enough?

I predict too many people and not enough space.

I predict too many people and not enough space.

I don't want to use the fountain area with the rocks by the bamboo trees because there's a risk that people might fall into the water or *gulp* hit the rocks, and also that grassy area can get muddy and icky, which is NOT good for costumes or white shoes.. :thumbsup:

The steps will work out because there's lots of space around, and we'll have the tallest cosplayers stand in the back, shorter cosplayers stand in front of them, and then there'll be space for cosplayers who wish to kneel or sit on the 2-3 levels of steps. The area for photographers is spacious so I'm sure we'll be able to take pics of the entire group even if there's a lot of cosplayers for the gathering. :)

EB, just let me know when you have decided on a time. So far, no one has posted a gathering on the gathering list thread, so as far as time goes, it's open. I'll be looking around other threads though.

Oh, any way you can sticky that thread for me? Much appreciated if you can. ^^

Ah, there's a slight problem with that location; we don't have guaranteed use of it this time around. (They might want to book a wedding or some other group into that side of the hotel on the same weekend we're in the big part of the hotel.)

We're moving into the main building, so we've got access to a different set of spots. See http://www.boston-baden.com/hazel/Pix/2005/pix3584.htm for some photos.

Let's see if I can get this straight.. So this year AnimeLA will be held in the bigger side of the hotel since last year that side was used by some private event, right? So in 2006 the smaller side (where the dealers' rooms, Karisu-sama's photobooth room, and the room where the masquerade was held) of the hotel AND the outdoor courtyard might be blocked off due to a wedding? Does that also include the rocky area and fountains? (Imagine cosplayers & photographers' reaction when they find out they can't use the rocky area for pictures this year..) :thumbsup: Those areas are among the favorites (and best spots) of the hotel for pictures..

As for your suggestions for alternate locations, the area in the middle of the hotel is too narrow for a gathering as there's lots of tables & chairs there (I took pics of a friend for a photoshoot there.) I think probably we'll have it indoors, and the area outside the MAIN BALLROOM past the hotel registration is spacious enough. I wandered over there in 2005 but didn't take any pictures of it. That's probably the best place if the courtyard will be used on Saturday afternoon.

Hazel Chaz
11-30-2005, 02:17 AM
... Or outside the pool area, that would work too for a big group.

Mind you, if there's nothing going on in the Plaza Tower, the hotel won't mind if you cruise on down there for a photo group. But if they're setting up for an afternoon or evening event, we're out of luck.

Eurobeat King
11-30-2005, 02:38 AM
No worries.. As i said, when the time for the gathering comes, if the original location, the brick-steps area, is free then we'll do our photoshoot there. If it's busy, then I'll simply have everyone head over to the main ballroom past hotel registration and we'll form the gathering there. :)

11-30-2005, 07:47 PM

Sure.. The gathering is open to anyone who wears a costume, and non-anime costumes like Star Wars, Harry Potter, X-men, LOTR, etc. are fine. Just simple stuff like wearing normal clothes and putting on a Naruto headband or kitty ears.. umm.. no. :sulk:

Anele: Right now 2:00pm on Saturday is the set-time for the c.com gathering, but if there's any changes to be made, just check here for any updates.

Well, I wasn't planning on bringing that costume because my hair won't be bleached...however, I don't think it really matters that much if I don't have bleached hair for him. So I think that I'll bring him than.:bigtu: Just need to fix my blades a bit. :p

I will be at the con Saturday. I want to make it to the photo! It's always so much fun! I have no idea what costume I'll have on though. Some thing old and classic for me? King. or something that wasn't recognized as much as it would be now? Rip Van Winkle or something new, Hoji or Naoto/Eric.

This con is a week after my $)th birthday, so I want to enjoy myself doing things that many would think I should not be doing. LOL

Gun Laws? I don't know about the legal code; I can tell you that we've got our own Weapons Policy, is that what you're referring to?

Similar to last year -- no projectile weapons or replica weapons (incl. Airsoft), please. Obvious props are okay; big foam gunblades and flintlocks, for example. And don't wave your weapons around.

I just spent a few minutes writing something up, see http://www.animelosangeles.org/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=119 for that. If you have specific questions, go ahead and ask them -- if you like, post a photo or a link to one, of the prop you're considering bringing.

Angel Tifa
01-09-2006, 07:27 PM
Okay I want to get this straight, say if I bring two fake toy guns, but not airsoft. I've read they're not exactly obvious props. So they will have to be covered correct? One of them is color tip, but the other one is orange with black spray paint. They both just make sounds. If I go as Aya Brea, those would be the props for the character. Should I just bring a backpack to cover them?

"Covered"? If we're going to consider them as replica projectile weapons, then please leave them home.

Oh EBK I will be bringing Angel no matter what. Even if I am blue from being so cold. I might also be bringing one of two new costumes to this con. It will either be Meg or Athena. Not to sure. Well have to see in the next few days on which costume I will be finishing. See you at the con.

OK, since I don't know how long this mandatory masquerade meeting will take at 2:00pm, and since I also don't want the c.com gathering to conflict with the Naruto gathering at 3:00pm, let's have the cosplay.com member gathering at 4:00pm This way it allows everyone who plans to be in the Naruto gathering and allows enough time to do ALLL those pairs, groups, silly pics, etc.

I'll make sure to remind people throughout the day, so please be there at 4:00pm. The location will be the same, and if the courtyard is taken, then I'll gather everyone and we'll move it to another place for the photoshoot. :)

See you all in 2 weeks!

Hey EB. :) So are we gathering in the courtyard then (as our main spot)? I changed the time on the gathering list as you had requested, but we still have those two spots listed (I think it was because you wanted a secondary meeting place in case of bad weather or something of the sort). Let me know! I also replied to your post on the list thread as well. :chatah:

Sounds good! If you're going to be at the gathering, whichever costume you wear I'll ask you to stay behind after we're done, and we can take some pics then (before is also possible but we all may be pretty busy up to the time of the gathering.) So we'll see. Yay for new costumes! ;)

It will be the regular Tifa because before I wear my AC Tifa at a con, I want to make some more modifactions. Sorry :(. Plus I made a different skirt(the last one I bought was years ago and doesn't fit me right) I like better than the last one.

Well, I guess that definitely makes us official!

I'm kind of leaning toward bringing out the Porco Rosso costume in time for the photo gathering. (It'll be worth the extra time to get it set up - Makeup is only somewhat more complicated than Black Jack, not counting the latex pig nose.)

Finalizing pack list and costume order as I type...

Thanks to everyone who showed up to the cosplay.com member gathering.. or should i say, gatherings?? haha Due to the courtyard closing off for the wedding a little earlier than 4:00pm, those who made it back to the lobby and then outside into the parking-lot made it to the first gathering:

And then, right at 4:00pm, Admin comes out and asks me if we're still having the gathering, and I said "we already had it.." :thumbsup: But since a lot of people were still in the lobby and some were asking if we were going to have it, I said "let's have another!" So we had a 2nd gathering shortly afterwards, for cosplayers who either missed the first one or didn't mind being in the 2nd:

More pictures of both gatherings can be found in my ALA Saturday gallery, and again, thanks to everyone who made it for one/both, and hope to do it again next year!

Rats! I would have done the second one, but I had to go off and do judgey-things, so I couldn't stay... :(

No:bigcry: The gathering was in the parking lot?! Me and a group of about 15 cosplayers went to the area by the pool and had a mini gathering because someonw told us that the gathering was there. But nothing happened and nobody took any pics:lost:

More than likely I'll be there, either as Hughes (FMA) or L (Death Note).


Earthbounder did you go as Hughes?

I went out front, then I came back to tell everyone where it was but you guys didn't move.

Firedramage : Yes, I indeed did go as Hughes. I'm barely noticable though, I was in back (For my height I'm sure). If you look on the right side of the pictures for the meeting I'm in the back, near one of the Naruto cosplayers in the first pic, and near Luffy and Snape in the second, throwing Hughes' "V w/ Thumbs Up" sign.

I tried to tell you that you can't meet in the courtyard at 4:00 because that's when the wedding sets up. That's why the location wasn't listed in the pocket program schedule.

Yeah I was out there too. Asking every passerby about the gathering... Most people where in the same boat. *siiigh*

HC: I wasn't complaining that we couldn't use the courtyard, as I knew that the wedding was coming in at 4pm. Being a fast photographer who knows how to scout out a good alternative-gathering spot, I told as many people as I could to meet outside in the parking-lot for the first gathering, and then we had a 2nd one later on. I was happy with both turn-outs for the cosplay.com gathering(s.)
