Hello from the Anime Expo's Cosplay Department

Hey there Anime Expo goers! My name is Elyse (or Mouse, I'll answer to both), and I'm Anime Expo's Cosplay Department Outreach Supervisor. My job is to talk with the cosplayers and make the cosplay experience at Anime Expo better. With your help, I hope to do just that.

My main job is to help with the organization of gatherings. The gatherings are still going to be organized by you guys, but I'll be around to help make sure that each gathering gets the space it'll need for the amount of people that will come, making sure no gathering interferes with another, and making sure no two gatherings get the same spot on the same day, same time. I'm really here to work with everyone to make sure things go as smoothly as possible for us cosplayers.

Already there's a thread for a gathering list, and I'd be ever so grateful if you were to use it. I will be checking it and updating my list to make sure all the gatherings are accounted for. I will also be checking this forum to make sure that I don't miss any gatherings.

Can't wait to talk to everyone and get to know you guys!

Could you give us a map of the gathering locations, or at least of the general convention center so we know what's available/off limits?

Hey guys! Wanted to let you know I saw this and I am working on something. School eats up all my free time during the week, so weekends are the BEST time to reach me.

Of course! It's what I'm here for. I'm actually going to work on the map and color code it so that you guys can know how much people each area can hold. This is going to take some time, but I'm hoping it'll help you guys out. All I ask is for a bit of time. I am still a student, and school does come first. But I shall work hard and HOPEFULLY get it done this weekend!
I'll keep you guys updated.

Something I've hoped for for many years of attending AX, which would also help save paper, would be having a list of the cosplay gatherings and a location map posted with the actual schedule in the program guide AX hands out and on their mobile "app".

Yes, I have to agree with serialstorm. It would be absolutely amazing if you guys (instead of just having the gathering booth - which a lot of people miss) included a copy of the gathering list either in the AX program guide, or as a separate piece of paper handed out in the bags. This would maximize the amount of people that knew what gatherings were going on when, and allow them to plan out their days more. Also, it would almost certainly up the amount of people who showed up for gatherings - cosplayers and photographers alike.

As a host last year (of the Bleach gathering), I was allowed to take a copy of the gathering list from the booth, but I know the general attendees weren't which I think made it so a lot of people either forgot gatherings were happening, or didn't know in the first place.

Also, a map would indeed be quite helpful XD

I am currently working on the map. Midterms ate my free time. But the map will be coming soon!

Also, for the programs, we're going to be working on having a gathering list in the program itself. However, we are going to have live updates as well. We have a lot of ideas on how to keep the live updates... up. I don't have anything set in stone as of right now, but it is something we will be doing. Part of the mobile app would be awesome. And I will happily run a twitter feed saying updates for all cosplay gatherings.

We are also planning on having a cosplay etiquette section. This is basically something we want to use in order to keep cosplayers comfortable.

Thank you for all this wonderful input!

I dunno if this is the right place, but does the con allow roller blades as part of the cosplay or is it one of those cons you have to carry them around?

Some updates!

Currently working on the map, and always checking for updates for the gathering list!

The gathering list WILL be in the program guide, along with some cosplay etiquette rules.

Finally, while you're allowed to have roller blades, we ask you not to wear them while in the convention center. You can roller blade outside, but not in.
