Hey guys, and welcome to another year of planning for Tales at Metrocon 2013. There was a bit of demand for a photoshoot last year, despite there being little interest that I saw of it here when I tried to set it up last year. Most of the issue seem to have been a lack of people knowing.
So this year, I have set aside a time in a panel room to gather Tales of cosplayers on Saturday. This way, it will also be in the Metrocon guide book. It'll be at 9:00PM in Panel Room 19
I have also created a Tales of Florida group
on Facebook for any fans in Florida to join and be able to know about any Tales related events happening anywhere in Florida. It's a good place to try and organize anything you guys want to do in the future, so please spread this group around to any Tales of Fans you know!
Also this year, the Tales of Panel will be running differently. Metrocon unfortunately puts all their panel times to 1 time slot for one hour. I only managed to request for at least 2 hours during the convention. So I'll be changing things up, but I need some help from cosplayers.
I'm going to be a running a Tales of Scavenger Hunt
and I need cosplayers who are willing to volunteer some of their time to make this event possible. All the information concerning the Hunt are posted on that page, so please take some time to check it out. Feel free to drop any questions you have here or on the Facebook page.
So here's the proper schedule for the con so far:
5-6pm Tales of Panel - Rm 24-25
9pm Tales of Photoshoot - Rm 19
3pm-4pm Tales of Panel - Rm 19
And here be the obligatory "Who are you going to be cosplaying?" list. So far, I'm just going to be Leia Rolando from Tales of Xillia.
