This page is so helpful. So many possibilities. I don't know how many locations will be accessible over the weekend, but it really helps me with my research. I brain is full of ideas after looking at this.
Thanks for posting that. The campus looks beautiful. I've never seen it before.

I like that building called "Noski" and "Planetarium"

If not, then hopefully I'll see the big group of photographers around! Haha~

@Kio: Wanna do a ShinoHina photoshoot? ROFL. Or Eaa giah~? Lawl.
it seems like people are going to have a hard time meeting up that early. i'll try to be there at 10, but if no one is there, i should put up a sign to say "meet here at 12:30, or 1"

I was trying to figure it out from the website but I must be dumb cause I don't see it.
I can see from the map that registration is adjacent to artist alley
i typically show up before school, get my badge, go to class, go home, get into costume then come back and walk right in. I've never really looked at times, but it's alway seemed to open up pretty early. i'd show up around noon and if they arnt open yet ,just enjoy the scenery.

Time Edits

Hopefully offering two times will help people be able to make it to the photoshoots. Please PLEASE PLEASE dont just come to one photoshoot. Everyone knows, scheduled events fall flat if no one shows up.


[EDIT] I want to schedule an actual date and time for us all to meet up together so EVERYONE can have pictures and get pictures taken, etc. Think of it as a photo taking party. hahahah! >D

When:
---Friday at 3:00pm and again at 6:00pm
---Saturday at 10:00 am and again at 1:00pm
--- Sunday at 10:00am and again at 12:30
---(I'm open to compromise if anyone has suggestions)

Where:
--- In the center of the convention, where music is played and there are many tables with umbrellas around. I'll try to be as easily noticeable as possible.
--- Once we all meet up, we'll start moving around campus finding great spots for photoshoots so that EVERYONE can have a great set for getting some really good pictures.

Plan:
--- If we have one of these gatherings every day, then the cosplayers should be able to get a photoshoot of most of their costumes, and the photographers can get a really wide variety of characters. Also, if anyone misses one of the days, they'll still have another chance.
--- Traveling around in a group should make us feel less awkward should other students be wandering around campus, raising their brows... strength in numbers right?

[[[[[[ ADDITIONAL EDIT! ]]]]]]]


Communication: I want everyone to be able to share the pictures we get of each other and i'm struggling deciding how to do this. We could all communicate on here, but i dont want to pass out my e-mail online. So here is my idea...

Photographers, please come with paper so you can write down the e-mail adress or AIM of the models who request to see their pictures when they are available. make a description of their cosplay underneath so you will remember who they are and you can send them their pictures.
!!!!If you have a gallery you post these pictures in, make sure your model will allow you to post these pictures. And if they allow you to, provide a link so they can access their pictures.

[b]Models[B/], please make sure you write down the contact information of the photographers who took your picture. Make a note to remind yourself what costume you were wearing. You may need to contact them, and you may need to remind them what you were wearing.
!!!! If you have requests, let them be known. make sure a photographer knows if you only want your friend to take pictures, or if you dont want your pictures to become accessable to the public. Also, let your photographer know if you will allow your better pictures to be pictures for their own use, such as for photography portfolios.


Is there anything else i should consider or mention?

Small change of plans! It looks like I will be wearing Oscar on Friday and Suzaku on Saturday. (Same outfits, just swapping days.)

That sounds great! I should be able to make it to each of the later times for sure. I'll do my best to get there earlier as well, though!

Haha, I don't mind at all! In fact, I would be very appreciative. I have next to no photos of most of the costumes I'm wearing this time. xD

Yes, thank you! 2 separate times makes it a whole lot easier. ^^

I'm sorry about the whole time thing. I'm usually not naggy about it but for some reason, my father doesn't like me heading out too early? Yeah, I don't know. -_-;,

Oooh, thank you SO much for adding in a secondary time for this !
I'll still try to show up to the 10am one, but if not, I'll still be there for the later times.

We're going to meet in one spot then i'm going to start guiding around campus so we can all find the best places for our pictures. So if you dont meet in the meeting place when we're all there, you can try finding us... or likely you should just look for us the next time we turn up.
