Well this is pretty much a full blown group at this point! I got word that we also may have a Tiny Tina joining us as well but I'll have to confirm. At what time would everyone be comfortable meeting at?

I was thinking around 11:30/Noon right in front of the main lobby area before you would have to present your con wristbands on Saturday. If anyone has any photographer buddies available at that time let em know to swing by our way if they'd like to get some shots of everyone together. I haven't gotten an assigned photographer for an official shoot but if somebody would like to suggest one and he/she is up for it around that time let me know! Just over 2 more weeks left guys!! Hope your all as excited as I am!

Awesome. :3
I'm still working on my cosplay...had no idea that the cosplay was going to be a bitch though XD. I've been working on it for 3 months...and only have little over half of it completed right now.
-luckily they are wearable. I just need to do the finest small detailed parts and will have it ready-.
So we're all going to meet at the main lobby on that Saturday correct?
And around 11:30/noon. Got it.
I'm hoping more people will show up.
Sounds awesome you've found out that there maybe a Tiny Tina. :3
Hope to see everyone there!
I'll be there Friday-Sunday. The whole weekend. But might just do Borderlands cosplay on Saturday. Depends really...may do it again on Sunday.
I just don't know how many are showing up as Borderlands characters just yet. XD I've kinda lost count after seeing another update here on Cosplay.com
I should have a photographer buddy showing up to take photos! I haven't concluded the deal just yet...because he's going to be in a different cosplay and need to know finer details...XD
So...I'll keep checking up here throughout the next few weeks to check and make sure who is coming.
But who knows...there might be other people there that may not have a Cosplay.com account that will show up for the cosplay group. :3

My Steampunk group might run over just a bit; they're trying to push it back to 11-ish. but I'll do my best to find youse guys.

I'll have to see if I can come up with a method of processing a photo to get that cel-shaded effect that's such an identifiable Borderlands style.

This will be my first Mega Con, so i have no idea where the area you're talking about is! could i get like, a map or frame of reference? I'll be Handsome Jack both friday and saturday, so if you see me, please let me know! Any of you! And pictures are always nice. Also, engaging in conversation is also a thing i am known to enjoy.

It's not too hard to find your way around. In terms of sheer size, MegaCon doesn't spread six city blocks like like Dragon*Con; it's mostly self-contained within the convention center, with the exception of some of the extracurricular activities like the after-hours parties.

The convention center has two main buildings: The West building, on the west side of International Drive, and the North-South building which is on the ... east side .. of International Drive? Makes perfect sense, right? Anyway, MegaCon is all contained within the West building; however, if you're driving in, you may have to park at the North/South building and take the shuttle across the street. Or walk.

Once you're in the West building, it's not too hard to find your way around. The main halls are A, B, C, D, E; I believe MegaCon is all going to be in D and E, with panels and activities in the surrounding meeting rooms.

Some maps:

^Also an easier way to find your way is to just follow the hordes of people in costume.

Aw, I was so sad when I found out you guys were doing this! My son would have loved to get a group shot with you guys. He was a Suicide Midget Psycho (the ones that blow up). I had a hard time taking him out places Saturday because of how packed the place was!

The photos of your badass turned out great. Well, the whole Borderlands group turned out great, I can't pick favorites I'm slowly working through the stuff I took over the weekend, should have them up within a couple days.

That's great to hear! I can't thank you enough for taking your time and getting shots with all of us! I'm really excited to see everything that you shot this past weekend

Here's the set, tag as you see fit:
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...30046&ty pe=1

I'll have them up on Flickr and our website soon, and if anyone wants high-res non-watermarked for personal use, let me know.

And one of my favorites from the set:



I'll be uploading other shoots from the con over the course of the week or so.
