Just seeing if anyone will be dressing up from Avatar this year. There is a small group of us wearing costumes on Saturday afternoon/evening and I was curious if there were other people cosplaying from this series. We have a Zuko, Azula, Suki, Sokka, and Mai. I would definitely love to meet up with other people for some fun photos.

I'll be in Zuko as well with at least a Mai, not sure about the rest of our group yet.

Wish I had more time and money for this. Not this year. However, I do hope to have something done before the release of Avatar: Legend of Korra starts. Look forward to seeing you all at Dragon Con this year

More costume than cosplay

Given my shaved head, I've always wanted to do a generic air bender. However, my weight makes General Iroh more appropriate. There just isn't a tornado strong enough to lift me. I'll *try* to get one costume or the other finished before this year's DC, but no promises. At the very least, I wanted to follow along and take pictures.

Wonderful! I would love to set up a time and place to meet for some pictures! I have two people that will be taking pictures of us but more photographers the better We could meet up early like 3pm but our Azula will be judging the cosplay contest at that time. Ideally 5:30pm or 6pm would be better. Please let me know your thoughts.

Sorry, but I barely take decent photos with my point and shoot Kodak. My apologies if you had your hopes up for a professional photographer. Saturday afternoon/evening (like your 6 PM suggestion) should work, since Saturday is the busiest day for me. I'm committing to both Guinness record attempts, and want to drop by the Marvel photoshoot at 4:30 to photograph all the superheros. There's a possibility that the Disney and 80's Flashback groups might meet for their second photoshoot, but I can catch them on Friday during their first photoshoot. Therefore, plan when is best for your group.

I'm working on a Sokka costume, and a friend is planning an Azula.

I will go ahead and plan to be in the Katara costume at 3 pm. I'll probably wear it Friday too, as well as Sunday. We might need numbers to get together. And, where would we get together at? Yadda yadda yadda.

There's actually a large group of A:TLAB cosplayers marching in the parade via an organized group. More are welcomed to join, though from there I don't think a formal meet has been planned. I'll be there again and marching as Katara. We also have Zuko, Suki, and Toph. We may have an Azula, too. Link for the parade march group: http://community.livejournal.com/airbenderparade/

Last year, we had a photoshoot/meet immediately following the parade in the Marriot. Since a large group of us will be in costume already, I'm sure meeting at noon on the 10th floor would be ok.

Sadly I am marching in the parade but with the Disney group We plan to put the Avatar costumes on later in the day. By all means go ahead and do an awesome gathering after the parade!

My group will still plan to do a photoshoot with Avatar costumes at 6pm on Saturday. I talked to the photographer and he thinks we should meet at Suntrust building near the sign. I know Suntrust can be picky about large groups doing photoshoots on their property but I don't think we will be large enough to bother them. Besides we can always walk from there to other locations!

No problem, just a shoutout to anyone who wishes to join since it's open to all

Be careful, though, with taking photos at Sun Trust. They require you to have permission prior to taking photos on their grounds, no matter how small your group. I did a shoot with 3 people there last year and if my photographer had not previously gotten written permission from them, we would've been booted out by the cankerous security guard who assailed us within 5 minutes of shooting there.

I suggest the stone arch across the street from there. No worry about needing permission and it's a beautiful piece of architecture. My favorite costume photos were taken there.

I'll be cosplaying Azula's season 3 armor and marching in the parade with the Avatar group. I'd love to meet up with any other Avatar cosplayers though!
