Okay but you might want to check out Hopkin Plaza which is behind The Bank of America building. It's is a rather large size plaza with a Fountain,Shade and cool statues that doesn't get the sun on it at the time your looking to do your shoot.

Ah right, totally forgot about that part-- after seeing a bunch of Homestuck panels at other cons, I totally forgot about Otakon's policy towards non-Asian panels. Fair point!

As for times, those sound good to me!

I know which place you're talking about, actually! It is cool, but I don't think it'd be practical to move such a large amount of cosplayers outside.

(Edit: Whoops, totally didn't realize I was double posting... sorry.)

I mean, if we told everyone to meet there it wouldn't be such a problem? I know the plaza in question, but would it be okay for people to be there for such a long time and not bothering the professional buildings around us, haha. Since we are usually a VERY large group.

It seems like the only option is the fourth floor since you don't want to go outside. I imagine the times are the same as last year..3:14?

Yes you can use the plaza with out bugging the "Professionals" that is the backside of the Federal Court House. I've done quite a few large group shoots over the past few years at the Plaza. Plan on using it for this year Res Evil .

Besides last year when I did a couple of small group stuff over there the "Professionals" all stood around and watch then after came over and ask question about the group.

I'm just worried about the heat, more than anything, since our shoots usually run long.

@Destnai I'm afraid I'm not staying that long. I'd most likely leave around 10:00. Well, it depends!

Considering I get my crap together on time, I might be cosplaying Kanaya or Karkat for a day or part of a day, depending on what my friends want me to do. I don't know when yet, but I hope I see you guys there all the same. ^_^

Super excited-- been talking with my friends who shot a MLP cosplay music video at Katsucon, and they sound like they're up for shooting a Homestuck one at Otakon! We have an idea in mind, and I'll be sure to post here once we figure some stuff out. ;D

I didn't make this to make a photoshoot, i'm just asking if anyone is going to Otakon as a Homestuck character on Saturday.

I'm most likely going as Jake, if you see me (I'm probably walking around with a China) PLEEEAAAASSSSSEEEEE talk to me! Even if this is my 3rd/4th Con; I tend to be antisocial at Cons and it surprises me because i'm usually not a shy person! I've been trying to make other Homestuck friends and it have been unbelievably hard. ;o;
I really don't want to give you a hard job when you're trying to have fun at a con but, do you mind helping me come out of my shell? c:
I'll probably be cosplaying Trickster Jake Saturday, Terezi, or Karkat on Saturday. If I see you, it would be cool! (btw, I m kinda young for a homestuck (14) so I hope it's ok).

So no homestuck panel? Otakons website confuses me with panels.

Otakon will let you apply for them, but they won't accept them. Otakon doesn't take non-Asian panel topics :C
