Smile Western Movies and Comics 2014

So this year I ran the -shockingly- popular WESTERN MOVIE AND COMIC PHOTOSHOOT and I have decided that next year I really want to cosplay a Star Wars character since it was really my first fandom

So like this year I have deciced to run a biiiiig photoshoot for all us people not in Anime series style cosplays! We could simple call it 'The Fandom Shoot'!

Basically what I'm hoping for is a real gathering of the geekdoms! There are so many fandoms that just do not get enough love because they have no photoshoot of their own.

And for a lot of nerds even though Anime North is considered a 'Anime' convention, it is still a lot of our only major convention so it's nice to be able accept any fandom into the fun.

So included series and fandoms are:
- DC, Marvel and other comic book companies
- Scott Pilgrim
- Animated movies like Rise of the Gaurdians
- Disney, unless they get their own shoot
- Both live-action and animated (especially since The Avengers is technically Disney)
- Harry Potter, Twilight and Hunger Games (Book cosplays)
- TV series like True Blood, Game of Thrones and Walking Dead
- Adult Swim shows like Adventure Brothers (sp?)
- Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, etc.
- Carmen Sandiego, Where's Waldo
- Live-action movies like Snow White and the Huntsmen and Sucker Punch

Not Included (Sorry Guys)
- Dr.Who as they have their own photoshoot (if it's cancelled then feel free to join!)
- My Little Pony, Homestuck,Adventure Time (You all have your own shoots)
- Monster High has a group trying to organize one (if it falls through than come on in!)
- Anime series
- Video Games

But for all of these if they can make a good argument then I may be swayed

Oh and next year I shall bring a megaphone and a more detailed photo idea list!

Considering how awesome and fun it was last AN, I'll definitely be returning as Loki for the next one. ...spent enough money on the armor that I might as well milk that cosplay now >.>

Since I'm throwing another $300 into a better remake of my Quorra costume, I'll be coming again in it! ...though I dunno for sure if it's a Friday. I'm planning on selling at the fashion swap meet next year.

I'm still far from deciding on my costume yet but I might be doing Darth Vader or something TMNT next year so if I do that I'll definitely be there. I'm looking forward to it.

I actually didn't notice this thread until just now! Count me in, I'll be going as Leonardo from TMNT. I didn't think there would be any shoot for Western fandoms, so thank you a bunch for organizing it!

Gohan Som: Omg, someone else wants to maybe do TMNT, what did you have in mind? You win so many points in my book for even considering it. XD

Say, is music something that would be allowed to show up to the shoot? :P I may or may not bring my Katy Perry costume to AN. I'm working on it for CostumeCon and depending on whether it survives that con in one piece I might bring it to North.

Not sure it would fit in with the other characters and themes though. If so I might just pop by to take photos of people since I'm taking on a more cosplay-related role for the site I work for. ^^;

Not sure I would love to do Shredder but not sure how I could do it (I am no good at making things.) I would also love to do a foot ninja or Casey.
