Smile Any Gundam Cosplayers?

Hi There!

I was wondering if there will be ANY Gundam (from any and every series) cosplayers at this Otakon?

I'll be doing my very FIRST crossplay of Heine Westenfluss (Gundam SEED Destiny) in honor of T.M.Revolution (because he does the voice of Heine in the Japanese version) so I was just wondering/hoping there will be any other Gundam cosplayers attending, it'd be even more awesome if there were any SEED/Destiny cosplayers attending so we could do a photoshoot!

The two Gundam photoshoots last year managed to have quite a turn out, so I'm hoping this year we'll be able to get just as many if not even more people (and from more series)!

You can count on me returning as Harry Ord (from Turn A Gundam). If things go smoothly time- and construction-wise over the next several months I should be able to a)get an additional Gundam character done--I've got my sights set on Mashymre Cello from ZZ-- and/or b)do one of Harry's other outfits so that I won't have to wear the same variant I did at last year's Otakon (his default Royal Guard uniform).

My friend and I are going to be Quatre and Trowa from Gundam Wing. If there's a second shoot I'll pull out Duo again

Bumping this as the Otakon board here is becoming more active and those planning to attend in Gundam cosplay are more likely to chime in as the con grows nearer--we may still have roughly four months to go but we might as well start discussing the time(s) and location(s) for these shoots before all the good spots are taken!

There's a little more than two months left and yet still no suggestions for times and locations... I don't want to just pick something out of the air that doesn't work for the rest of you, but to get the ball rolling anyway, how does either 2PM or 5PM on Saturday near the indoor fountains (specifically the Charles St. Lobby) sound for at least one of our photoshoots?

That sounds OK to me, though I'll have to run and change for another shoot after.

Gonna give everyone one more week for input and then I'm going to go ahead and have us added to the master photoshoot list for Saturday, 2PM, in the Charles St. Lobby. Just because it'll be listed doesn't mean it's set in stone, however--things can still be changed in case it doesn't work for a significant number of people and/or if it ends up conflicting with Gundam-related programming. Also, since it's sort of tradition now to have two gatherings each year (to give everyone attending at least one chance to join us) does anyone object to having one on Friday at 5PM on the outdoor terrace (third floor) as well? Figuring as long as it doesn't rain it'd be nice to have one of our shoots outdoors at a time when it's not quite as hot but still in daylight (because nighttime/low-light photography can be a pain in the butt!).

There are now two scheduled gatherings for us on the stickied photoshoot list thread: one on Friday at 5PM on the 3rd floor terrace and another on Saturday at 2PM near the indoor fountains. Based on the turnout we've had in the previous years I'm certain we'll still have a decent number of cosplayers show up despite this thread not receiving very many replies so far. It might just that many of those who are cosplaying Gundam characters this year don't use this site so naturally we aren't getting any responses from them. Also, Gundam-related programming always helps gather more people for our shoots anyway especially for those who were unaware there were planned cosplay meetups in the first place. We may just have to be extra-patient and wait to see how things actually go considering this thread may remain rather inactive even throughout the last few weeks before the con...

This particular fandom has the weird problem of being rather scattered with fans often being isolated from one another (for various reasons) although by some miracle Otakon manages to unify a good number of us, even if only for an hour or two!
