There will be no OFFICIAL meet ups regulated by Otakon but I was thinking about scheduling some unofficial meet ups. I didn't really want to schedule photoshoots outside but if it'd be cool with everyone we can make an unofficial location and time.

Can't wait to see your Guilty Gear cosplays! Also, I am only aware of the RWBY series, not the game... If you really want to join in, that'd be cool though.

At some point I might be Kasumi from Dead or Alive 5. I'm not too sure about my schedule yet so I'll have to get back to you.

It's kind of interesting because last year there was a gathering on both days and a lot of people participated, at least for the one on Friday. I wonder where everyone is now...

Wasn't sure what I was going to come as but now that I've got it figured out with my friends, I'll be there as Scorpion from MK Legacy. My friend will be there as Sub-Zero (possibly from MK Legacy as well). If you guys are doing the meet at 9 PM Saturday night, then we'll most likely be there.

Yup, we are!

I'm still really surprised at the lack of responses. :O

I don't really follow fighting games, and maybe I'm dead wrong but I don't think 2014 was a big year for new games, and perhaps that's why there aren't too many. In previous years MvC3 was pretty big, DOA5 was relatively new, etc. Perhaps there would have been more people if the gathering was planned and posted months in advance, as seems to be the case with most gatherings.

Also, the times might not be too ideal for many. 9pm Saturday is around masquerade time I think, and 10AM on Friday is pretty early for people who aren't picking up badges on Thursday and might still be waiting in line that morning.

If you want to change to a non-Otakon sponsored location, it would be possible to set another time! But at this point I'm not sure if anyone else will join...

Mayocowboy, please let us know as soon as you can about your plans for a Saturday meet up. My friends will be there some time between Thursday-Friday but I won't be arriving until Friday evening, so the Friday option is definitely out for me. This will be my first time attending a con with friends as well as a meet, so it'll be cool if this can work out. Otherwise, no big deal.

As I've stated before, I'm open to any unofficial meet ups we can plan outside of the con center. Just let me know!

And yup, Saturday at 9 on the 4th floor West Side!

Just confirmed I'll be there with 4 of my friends Saturday night

I'll be there as Scorpion from MK Legacy and my friends will attend as Sub-Zero, Hayabusa from DoA, and the last one will likely be Tenchu from the video game, so basically all ninja :P
