We usually have two or three shoots at Otakon because of the huge draw. Let's get this ball rolling!

There is also a police box in the city if people want to journey out to that for a small shoot.

Also, I'll be some forms of Rose again.

I am absolutely down for this! I'll probably be bringing my Jackie Tyler to Otakon as well.

I'll probably be Rose as well in some form along with Romana, hopefully.

I think three is a little excessive, especially for crazy people like me who cosplay everything (Doctor Who, however, is my focal point)

I was thinking of doing a shoot on Friday and Saturday and maybe a cosplay dinner on Thursday?

That all sounds good to me. I'm not sure I'd be at both shoots (probably just one) but the dinner sounds really fun!

It's usually one on Friday and one on Saturday. The third one, if it does happen, is usually an impromptu shoot for those who can't make it to the other two.

Well, considering there's a good possibility I'll be in a skit, I may not make the Saturday shoot.

I'm thinking one morning and one evening shoot, kinda like how Katsu went.

Okay folks may I suggest that we look to going to the same old shoot schedule we have done in the past,

Friday Morning 11AM in the Charles Street Fountain Area

Saturday because of the size we had last year (150 folks) may I suggest we move this shoot to Hopkin Plaza, for those who don't know the location it is behind the Bank of America building it has a huge fountain in the middle plus unlike the Inner Harbor Fountain it has shaded areas.

With the time constraints that Otakorp are going to be giving each group I don't see how we can do a large group shoot on Saturday inside the BCC.

As for the police box well there are two one is located near Penn Station and the other is located right in front of the Central Police Station on Baltimore Street if folks want to do a shoot with the Police Box can we as a group decide which one and in the past we have done this on a Sunday Morning.

If you go to the Facebook page, I've already got times and dates for the shoots.

I got us a 3PM spot on the terrace on Saturday in accordance with the Otakorp.
The shoot near the fountains I have going is at 5PM unless this is going to clash with other cosplayers' schedule. Majority rules if you'd prefer to have this earlier or not. This really doesn't matter in accordance to Otakorp, however, on Cos.com, it's already stated that we'll be taking up that area.

There can be an impromptu photoshoot with the police box on Sunday.

There's also going to be a Doctor Dinner party on Thursday.

Okay, let me just point out a few items then,

1) Ten years ago when we stared doing Who shoots we had one group on a Friday Morning we had about 30 folks, five years ago we added Sat shoot and the first Sat shoot we had 75 folks, last year we had four shoots Friday two on Sat and one Sunday, the second Sat shoot held on the Terrace had 150 folks and took us almost two hours to shoot. Keep this in mind since OTAKORP has stated we have 55 minute to setup and shoot.

2) At 5PM the Inner Harbor is in full sunlight and normally this is close to part of the hottest part of the day, three years ago we did a shoot at the Inner Harbor Fountain at 430 the temp was bloody hot, so please take this into consideration, I wouldn't want a repeat of the Heatila shoot that same year.

As for Facebook I don't do Facebook anymore I'm not trying to step on your toes what I'm trying to point out that haven been involved with the Who shoot for the past 10 years we have try pretty much anything you can come up with. As for the dinner great when and wear

Oh and FYI I'm the person who is working on trying to bring a Dr. Who Convention to Baltimore
