Also people tell me if you would rather have 6 pm? F0xx0rzz suggested it as they wanted to come help/see the shoot too but have a shoot that conflicts. I figured people would be leaving for the masquerade by 6 or already going to dinner (I was hoping to grab dinner with people after the shoot), the sun sets at 8 tho (and we did want afternoon / evening light) so no worries about light.
ALSO if it rains or something - just meet there in the hall outside the courtyard, we will all move somewhere fitting by a little after the scheduled time for shots.
ALSO if you can't make the shoot I am also planning a casual pajama party later at night
to hang out! Cosplay optional but cozy lazy cosplay encouraged (or your full costume even, I'll still be Pitch, he is always in PJ's LOL) Just come and hang out, bring a drawing pad and snacks if you like!
