One Piece 2014

Hey there everyone! Its about that time, don't ya think? There was no thread yet, so I decided it would be a good time to post one up! I've been helping run the shoots for the past two years, and would love to continue doing so!

Now, lets get down to business! I thought it would be best to keep the same times and place as the past two years. I'm also looking for two other people to help me run all three shoots. It's really a lot wiser to have three people, instead of just one, when it comes to shoots as big as ours!



Shoot Host:
X3BelovedX3
Co-Hosts:
Friday & Saturday Morning: Roaringtide, Saturday Morning Only: DukeLawliet & Bwing97


Photoshoot Times:
Friday- 7:30pm
Saturday- 11am & 7:30pm
*The is no shoot for Sunday, but if someone would like to run one, be my guest!

Photoshoot Place:
Outdoor Fountains

*Times and places are finalized!

Another thing we have to talk about is how the photos will be taken and where the cosplayers will be standing during the shoot...

This past year, more so than years past, the Photographers and waiting cosplayers crowed the cosplayers getting their photos taken. On Saturday we came up with a great plan that seemed to work quite well. We had all of the cosplayers, who where taking pictures stand on the upper area of the fountains and not in the lower part but the water. Then we had the cosplayers who where not being photographed stand by on the right and left sides. Lastly, we had all photographers and non-OP cosplayers stand directly across from the shoot behind a line on the ground. This allowed the cosplayers some room to breath. It was also a lot easier for cosplayers to get up to the photo area when it was their turn.

For people who don't know what the outdoor fountains look like, let me show you what I mean with this picture of a lovely Sogeking from this past year:

https://31.media.tumblr.com/ec9fedd7...w6C1qisiez.jpg

I know, not the best example picture, but it should show how much room the cosplayer had to pose and have their picture taken. We will also explain this entire set up at each shoot, before they starts. Also at each shoot the other hosts and myself will have a list of the order in which photos will be taken. Afterwards we will open it up to requests. When we have requests open, make sure to stand by the hosts. We get a lot and need you near by, just in case we forget and need to ask you what you wanted. You can also make special requests here, and I will make sure to add them to the list before the con!

Sorry for rambling on and if anything I wrote is confusing! I tend to word things oddly. If you guys have any suggestions for anything to do with the shoots just let me know!

Now, who from OP will you be cosplay this coming Otakon?

Usually I go as fem Ace, but this Otakon I'm going to be cosplaying as a fem Mihawk and will most likely be attending all the OP shoots.
For the photoshoots, we should also try to keep music to a minimum. Someone brought a portable speakers to one of the saturday shoots and it was a nice touch, but it was too loud so it was hard to hear the host.
I might be able to host a sunday after-con photoshoot if enough people will show up (at least 12?). I don't want to do it during the day cause sunday it like a last minute shopping day at the con and people need to move out of their hotels.
For a request, I really liked the the group pose of the shanks and mihawks sitting on the ledge drinking from last otakon. If we could do that again I would be so happy.

So I'll be doing Strong World and Thriller Bark Nico Robin as well as Fem!Doflamingo! Totally forgot to post that XP

@FatalCrimson123- Can't wait! Definitely keep us updated!!!

@Lady_Espeoi- Ooo I can't wait to see you'r Fem!Mihawk! The music was nice, but we really didn't need it. I'm not too sure who brought it. I do agree though, it should be kept to minimum. I'm gonna say people can bring speakers again if they would like, but if the music gets to loud, I will ask them to lower the volume. Keep me updated if you still want to host a Sunday shoot. Also I'll make sure to add you request to the shoot list!

@Ichigogami- Alrighty! I updated the main post! I completely understand. Can't wait to see you!

@CoralSnake- Oh I hope you go! Have any idea which OP cosplays you might wanna do?

I'll probably just be bringing Lady Lucci back. Dofla was just too damn hot to deal with last year.

@Nashidragon777- Great to have you back with your Sanji!

@KnowOne- Afro Luffy! Yay!!! I can't wait to see!

@VampireSin- Your Lady Lucci was wonderful last year! I can't wait to see her again! Oh, I was wondering if you could give me some tips of making Dofla's coat? I have a general idea on how i'm going to construct it, but I want to get a few more ideas before I begin on it! And yours was very nice. Probably one of the best I've seen.

@VampireSin - I loved the fire fruit you made as Doflamingo last year.

I usually end up at all or most of the OP shoots with my crew, so I am more than willing to help direct some shoots ;3.

Traditionally I do Admirals so Kizaru will probably come along. I am debuting Admiral Fujitora at Katsucon, so we will see how that goes. Might be ambitious and try my hand at a fishman, Arlong or Jimbe :3.

I went as pre-time skip Princess Perona last year & female Luffy in 2012. I'm not sure who I want to go as this year, but it's definitely going to be a One Piece cosplay!

Any suggestions?

Do Perona again. Mama Mihawk needs at least one pic with both of her babies.
