tag your photos #ALAstuck 2014
SEAL YOUR PAINT! ... SEAL YOUR PAINT!! ... SEAL YOUR PAINT!!!
On Saturday, i will be Meulin, and on Sunday i will be Vriska. my Badge will read "Ryverwulfe" or "Sage Kirby". my Co-Hosts are Roxy Rachelle (Princess Bubblegum on Sunday i think, and Roxy on Saturday) and Holden (Sheik from Legend of Zelda on Saturday, and Male!Roxy/Rory on Sunday)
Day 2 (Saturday):
2:20 at the Patio out front (same place as last year)
Day 3 (Sunday):
12:20 at the Pool Deck
each will last at least 40 minutes, as we are expecting it to be as large as it was last year, if not bigger. since all the groupings that -need- to take place, and i know everyone wants shipping photos. it will go faster if everyone is quiet and respectful so we don't have to wait for the people who didn't hear they have been called up. we -will- cut ships out to stay within our time limit
i'll see if we can get a longer time frames since so many shoots will take place and we're expecting a LOT of people. no promises.
We willing be taking group photo shoots in this order:
- Beta Kids
- Alpha Kids
- All Kids
- Beforus Trolls*
- Alternian Trolls*
- Candy Red
- Derse Dreamers
- Prospit Dreamers
- Midnight Crew
- The Felt
- Cherubs (Calliope, Caliborn, Lord English)
- Misc. anything and everything else [Ms. Paint, Hussie, lusus, Casey, Robo-versions (aradiabot, brobot, squarewave, etc), fan characters, Color swapped kids & blood switched Trolls**
, troll versions of the kids & human versions of the trolls (yes, go up with the normal ones too), a horse, etc etc)
- John Dave
- John Roxy
- Dave Jade
- Dave Jane
- Dirk Jake
- John Vriska
- Kanaya Rose
- Karkat Jade
- Kurloz Meulin
- Karkat Terezi
- Tavros Vriska
- Eridan Feferi
- Sollux Aradia
- Sollux Feferi
- Slick Paint
i can't think of anymore off the top of my head, i know there's more. these are one's we're doing for sure. i'll add more later.
, we will be grouping the Troll Shoots as follows:
because some people don't want to stay long on Sunday or need to leave early
we will have this list of ships at the meet-up. we will take time for people to come up and request ships. we will only take the more popular ships. i'm sorry, but no crack ships
like Feferi/Dave or what have you. we want to be polite and courteous and stay in our allotted time frame. the last thing we want is to make the staff angry and not be allowed to have meet-ups at future ALA's.
**Blood Switched Trolls & Color Swapped Kids:
yes, you may go up when your -character- is called. please do.
say we have a red John, go up with the other Johns. don't go up with the Daves just because you're colored in Dave's color scheme.
say we have a Fushia/Tyrian blooded Karkat. yes, you may go up with the other Vantas' when they are called, as you are a Vantas. and yes
, you may go up with the Peixes, since we're calling out by Blood Color and you are Royal Blooded.
depending on just how many trolls we have, we might not be able to have an Alternian and Beforus shots due to limited space where the photos will take place. this will only be a problem on Saturday though, as there will be (expected) less people on Sunday, and the pool deck is more open.
After The Meet Up
i know a lot of you like to hang out after meet up, but PLEASE leave the patio after the meet-up on Saturday to make room from other meet-ups and because we'll be RIGHT in front of the doors and may cause traffic jams. i, personally am unfamiliar with much of the lay out of Marriott, but we should all find somewhere to move to if we wish to play games, such as Spin the Faygo, and maybe have a couple mini-shoot of those crack ships if the cosplayers are up for it. read bad fan fiction about Wizardy Herbet, share horn-making techniques, what paint you use, and all-around just hang out.
Spin The Faygo
A LOT OF COSPLAYERS ARE MINORS!!!
A LOT AREN'T
!!! some kids
at Anime Expo 2013 from this game because SOMEONE
didn't tell anyone they had it, so it got passed around. THIS IS NOT OK!!!
if you have something, anything
, that can be transmitted with a kiss, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PLAY.
this include being sick
, like with the flu or whopping cough.
to avoid that, we've come up with a list
1 - High Five
2 - Hug
3 - Cheek Kiss
4 - Peck on Lips
5 - Full on Make-out, 10 secs max
when you go up, you give a number. you MUST go with the smaller of your two numbers
and be RESPECTFUL if someone isn't comfortable doing more
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO GIVE A SMALLER NUMBER.
you're safety, comfortability, and well-being are my main conserns. i want everyone to have fun. everyone, including those who are more shy and nervous.
