Gathering and Meet Up Times 2012

Hello everyone!

Shirochaan is currently busy, so I've volunteered to maintain the organization of this list for her until she returns. By now this should be pretty straightforward for everyone, but I shall do the spheal out of tradition ^_^

This thread is for posting gathering times for cosplay meet-ups and photoshoots. These gatherings welcome anyone who cares to attend, whether to simply take the group's pictures or to join in the fun! If you do not see a photoshoot for the series you are cosplaying, feel free to start one yourself!

PLEASE DISCUSS YOUR MEET UP TIMES IN YOUR OWN THREADS, THEN POST HERE!
This thread is not to decide or finalize your meet up; this is strictly for advertising your gathering.

Post your locations and times in this thread and I'll make the list for everyone's reference. This list will be updated as often as possible and is right in time with the AWA forums list, located here.


Please make sure your posts have the following information:

Anime Series/Game Series
Date (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday)
Time of Day
Location

Please talk to your thread before you post your meet, so as to ensure the best time is selected for those who wish to attend. Please do not post a gathering without starting a thread for discussion first!

In the event of rain the outside locations will not be available, so if you're using an outside location, please specify a rain location-- BUT BE WARY OF GROUPS ALREADY OCCUPYING THIS LOCATION! Check before you post!

LOCATIONS


The following locations are open for photoshoots. Please read all of the guidelines about the location before deciding.

Lawn: Located across the street from the front of the hotel section of the convention center, this is one of the most popular locations. The surrounding buildings ask that no pictures be taken of the buildings themselves in this area. Please be respectful of private photographers in the area (a lot of times people pay for those photoshoots so if you ruin their photos, you're wasting their money). This area is great for large groups.

Fountains: Also outdoors, this area is large enough for a full group. The hotel also asks that no one climb on or in the fountains.

Amphitheater: All the way in the back of the large outdoor area is an amphitheater section perfect for the largest of groups (Homestuck / Hetalia). Take care not to photograph the surrounding buildings if this area is selected.

Elevators: Behind the large elevators in the hotel lobby is a beautiful green area. The background is lush with greenery with an 'ice sculpture' in the center of it. Wonderful for large groups, this is also one of the best places for your group to be noticed. Please watch out for the walkways (this includes photographers) and don't block traffic. Only one group will be allowed here at a time.

Registration: No longer the artist's alley, the registration area is large and uninhabited most of the time. The room has many corners to meet in so please figure out which corner you would like. Please watch out for walkways (even if you're in a corner, the photographers may not be). This is better for smaller groups, but multiple can meet at once.

Dealer's Room: Outside of the dealer's room at the end of the hall, there is a large round area. This area is surrounded by windows and leads outside. A great place for medium to small sized groups, only a single group can meet here at a time. Please do not block the doorways in this area, as this is a high traffic zone. Please be sure to take pictures along the walls, as this frees up a little more space.

Ballroom: As you head down the hall to the ballroom, there is a set of stairs leading down and then up. At the top of these stairs is a large open space against some windows. This space is a great fit for a larger group but only one group can fit here at a time. Do not block the walkways or take photos down at the bottom of the stairs.

Okay, I've tried two computers and I am unable to edit my post - I can go in & write til my heart's content but when I go to "save" it, it basically freezes. I've tried both at home & at work so I dunno what's going on BUT:

~*Please note: Shirochaan is now back & will be in charge of the list. I can't delete this thred so I will leave it (unless a moderator would be so kind ^_^) but I will no longer be updating it. Thank you for your understanding!*~

I believe Shirochaan will be running a cosplay.com thread of her own soon but if not, I do know she's active on the AWA forum thread again ^_^

Yuppppp. Unfortunately I'm only in charge of the one on the AWA website. Hopefully the person in charge of this one will update soon. If not, can go to this one.
