Pretty much all you do is have everyone agree on a date and a time then add it to the master list under the Meet Ups thread. BTW, if anyone wants to see my progress, click the link in my signature.

YOUR WIG IS BEAUTIFUL.

And huh, okay. That seems really easy. But I'm still not sure I want to be in charge ha ha. Maybe I can get a friend to do it for me. I'm totes wimping out.

Thanks!

Yeah, I'd set one up but at this point I don't even know which days I'm dressing up as what. After the con schedule goes up I'll see if I can throw together a get together.

That'd be cool too. My friend was thinking about having it on the third floor terrace or the outdoor fountains since those are quite frankly the prettier spots lol. And though I have days already "planned" mine can change. And they probably will :P

Yes yes yes! Put together a meet up! I'm making a Cersei cosplay for Otakon. I'm aiming to do her outfit that she wears during the battle of Blackwater with the breastplate and stuff. I'm also planning to get a goblet that may or may not be filled with wine to carry around with me. Also, I'm gonna try and make the flask with the poison in it. So excited. I've wanted to do this cosplay for a loooooooong time. I'm a little afraid because I've never made a gown before. Or armor. Also, I've never embroidered anything before. So lol, guess I'm gonna have to do it all at once. I learn better by figuring stuff out as I go anyway, so bring it on.

And for those who aren't familiar with the specific outfit I'm referring to, it's this one.

I'd love to but until the schedule comes out I would like to hold off. I'm still not entire sure which day I'll be wearing my Daenerys costume either.

M'kay, fair enough. I will say that I would prefer the shoot be on Saturday. Since Cersei is gonna involve so much work, I'm gonna definitely be doing it on Saturday. I might also do her on Sunday. But yeah, whenever on Saturday would be my preference.

I want to have it on Saturday myself actually, but I too want to see the schedule. The only other things I am defiantly going to is the Hetalia shoot which is one both Friday and Saturday. I doubt I'll be going to both. (Even if I do I can just change lol)

But man, I would get started on that dress now, it looks like a ton of work 0:

Do any of you have an area in particular you want the meet-up to be at?

Lol, yeah, I'm a little terrified of how much work is ahead of me, especially since I've never done most of that stuff before. Not to mention I'm moving in two weeks, so there's that much less time that I can spend working on cosplay. Oh boy.

Buuuut, on a better note about my Cersei cosplay, my wig arrived in the mail yesterday. It's practically perfect. The style and length are spot on. The color is just about what I want it to be as well. The only problem I have with it is that the wig has streaks of some lighter color in random spots. But if that really seems noticeable or something, I could always just dye those parts of the wig to match the rest, which is a gorgeous golden blonde. I'll post a picture of it later today probably.

M'kay, so two votes for Saturday. We'll decide on the time when the schedule is posted. As far as location, I think I would prefer to be inside somewhere. This gown is gonna be super hot most likely. Not to mention outside you have to deal with the bright sun screwing up lighting for pictures. Other than that, though, I really don't care too much about where. Do you guys have any preference?

That's good to know

I would actually prefer to have it outside myself but we'll see what other people want to do. (I also wanted to take pictures of lovely costumes and I think the outdoor terrace or fountain would just be a better... setting? Ha ha idk, we can always move indoors since it seems like we're going to be a pretty small group.)

The terrace with all of the nice grasses would be nice too. My guess is I will probably dressing as Daenerys on Friday but I'll try for Saturday. It kind of depends on when my BF and I are doing our couples cosplay that weekend.

We'll see what happens once they release the schedule. That being said, would it be alright if we technically had two spots then? One to meet up and take some pictures. And the other to take more pictures B)

(Do you mean the third floor outdoor terrace? That's the one spot I was thinking of along with the outdoor fountain. I can't think of too many nice "green" outdoor spots in Baltimore.
