Post Fire Emblem: Awakening @ Otakon

Would you like to join the Ylissean army? Fight for a just cause? Youíve come to the right place, then, friend! Join us at the Baltimore Convention Center on Saturday, August 9th and donít forget to procure a weapon!
FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE LOCATED HERE.

WHO? You! Iíll be waiting there as Lucina with two of my close friends as Owain and Donnel and rounding up troops from 1:30PM onward (I will have a sign!), Iím fine with waiting a little longer since a lot of these outfits are armour heavy and the Baltimore heat isnít forgiving at all, but Iíd like to have the shoot started at least by 1430/2:30PM.

WHAT? Itís a Fire Emblem: Awakening shoot! Organised by character recruitment times - meaning Iíll be calling out chapters for recruitment (ie: chapter two characters would be Sully, Vaike, Miriel, Virion etc.) as well as groups (kids! royal family! antagonists!) The special ~S RANK SUPPORT REQUESTS~ as well as OTHER THINGS TO BE CALLED UP can be requested with this form.

WHEN? 1700/5PM on Friday, August 8th. 1400/2PM on Saturday, August 9th.

WHERE? BEHIND THE OUTDOOR FOUNTAINS next to the convention center!

Here.

Remember - this shoot is open to both cosplayers AND fans, so please do show up if you enjoy FE13, we would love to have you! I will be both cosplaying and snapping photos during the shoot.

Any questions? Comments? Concerns? Send me an ask - or an e-mail at chelsea at clgamer dot com. Please donít be afraid to voice any worries - Iím happy to work with you to iron things out. Thank you for reading!

Just as a headsup, the third floor outdoor terrace that you have indicated is one of the "official" Otakon photoshoot locations, and the shoots that have already been scheduled through the Otakon website will take priority -- as in staff will clear out other photoshoots if they get in the way. Given that 2pm on the outdoor Terrace means that you'll be competing with Bleach on Friday and Naruto on Saturday, it'd be a good idea to find a different place or a different time for your shoot. This is part of the reason that we have gathered behind the fountains in the past: nobody else uses that location, and Fire Emblem, even with the group we had last year, is small enough that we fit comfortably in that area without getting in the way of anybody else (or having the security staff clear us out).

Ooh, okay- I didn't know Otakon was doing that until just now! So I should move it to behind the fountains?

Yeah, that'd be for the best. We had about 30-40 last year for the Saturday shoot, and that location worked out very well -- there are plants there, so it has a nature feel, without the blistering heat. Later in the day on Friday might be better as well, so that 1: people have time to arrive and 2: we can keep the traditional post-shoot dinner going as a thing (I think this is the 6th or 7th year we've done this now!) I posted in the other thread that if we can have a decision in the next month or so, I'll be going down to Baltimore on business in late April, so I can take care of the arrangements for that (As best as is able -- Otakon is nuts no matter what, but the resturaunt knows both of my groups well by now, and they like us).

Sorry, I'm jumping between threads - let's keep this going here.

So, how late are you talking for Friday?

5pm Friday has worked very well in the past, We usually go to dinner around 6, which (surprisingly!) gets us in pretty quick.

Okay! I'll change the time and location to that, then. I just need to move a few things around on my schedule to accommodate.

Bumping this up to mention that American Cosplay Paradise is now interested in running a gathering as well because Kozaki Yuusuke, the lead artist of FE:A is attending Otakon this year. Check this link for more details and don't forget to attend the event on Facebook!

Left a note on the ACP page about the usual times, let's see what happens. I'm going to throw the Friday shoot into the "unofficial" thread on cosplay.com as well, now that I'm past ACen and all of the shenanigens that I do there

The location has been changed to the escalators by the indoor fountains due to concerns with the weather. Thanks for the feedback!

Note also that this shoot appears to be for characters in Awakening only. It is not a general Fire Emblem shoot.

However, we are looking at having at least the Friday one lead into a general Fire Emblem shoot immediately thereafter.

Hey, this is Jo, and I've been so graciously asked to take over the role of being in charge of the Friday photoshoot meetup. (: Unfortunately we were asked to relocate from indoors so to reiterate monogatari's announcement on the Facebook page the Friday (and hopefully also the Saturday) photogathering is held outside at the Outdoor Skywalk.

Friday, August 8 at 2PM at Outdoor Skywalk
