Mortal Kombat Meetup

Hi all! This will be my first time to Dragon*Con. I'm really looking forward to this con!

On Saturday at 1 PM, my group and I will be meeting at Hardy Ivy Park-
We are hoping to meet up with more Mortal Kombat cosplayers at that time!
Please let me know if anyone is interested in meeting up with us ^_^

Where is that in relation to the event? I'll probably have my Ermac costume out on Saturday. A mutual friend said that MK was the group of choice for the parade (Ask Scorpion).

I'm surprised that there hasn't been more support for MK this year. There was about 10 or so for last years meetup.

Props on it being your first DCon.

Hey man, thanks for that! For some reason I didn't put 2 & 2 together on that one XD I've changed it to 1.

Here is an AWESOME reference to locations. There is a map of each location at the bottom, with their corresponding number listed.

Thanks That is a handy ref. There's more places for photo shoots than I realized.

Yeah! I thought this location would be a good one... There's not much for indoor that represents MK very well, or at least, has good lighting. So I thought this outdoor location would be good!

Good point. Most of the shoots I've been in were indoor and a matter of convenience. They sure didn't fit the theme, XD Plus there were always masses of people.

Some of those pics for the Sun Trust building look really solid too.

Haha that's funny you say that. That's EXACTLY what I was thinking. I figure if the group meets at the park, we can get a couple shots at each location because they're right across the street from each other. Plus, if we *DO* relocate... People would see us on the way to the posted location. I mean, I'm willing to change it for sure. It also will depend on which area is more crowded. So how about we meet at the park and go from there?

I thought the park had a bonus because if anyone wanted to do any jump shots, there are planters to jump off of XD haha

Nice idea on the other views. That's a whole other aspect I hadn't considered.

I haven't been in either of those areas midday, but my suspicion is that pedestrian traffic is higher than costume stuff. I've seen the masses congregate more in the hotels than outside. It isn't dubbed Hotlanta for nothing.

Keeping the plan the same should be fine, since the other is close by, may as well do both.

Woot! Glad to hear another's approval of the plan. I check Cosplay.com at least once every two days so if you have anything else you'd like to add before the con, I'll be in touch ^_^

Sounds like a plan. I'll keep an eye on here too. Either way I'm sure the social mix up of MK, Killer Instinct, DOA crew will be collaborating somehow once activities commence.

Saturday at 1? I think our Sonya, Tanya, Noob, Stryker, Scorpion and Johnny Cage can make that.
