Official AX 2018 Gathering List

Yes, AX2017 barely ended but since I already got my badge for 2018, I figured, why not get this list started again! Returning hosts, you know the drill; new hosts, please read the instructions below.

AX2018 COSPLAY GATHERING SCHEDULE (Updated 11/23/2017, 1:00 AM)

To make a gathering request:

1) Click on the gathering schedule link above and look for an open time slot. Each day of AX can be accessed by each tab of the spreadsheet; the last two tabs show the gatherings in list form by day and list form alphabetically. For streetviews of each gathering site, go HERE.

2) Post your request for a gathering here in this thread in this format:

Gathering Name
Date
Site
Time
Facebook link (you can provide later; make sure it's open to the PUBLIC)

Your gathering can be 30 minutes, 1 hour, 1:30 hrs or 2 hours. If you do not specify how long, 1 hour will be given to you by default. PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of the limited gathering sites: don't ask for 2 hours or a large gathering site unless you are pretty sure you will need it. It may be difficult to tell early on, but if by June your gathering still has only 20 attendees but you're occupying a larger site, you may be asked to relocate to a smaller gathering site.

IF YOU CANNOT REGISTER HERE AT COSPLAY.COM TO POST A REQUEST DUE TO FORUM ISSUES, YOU CAN ALWAYS REACH ME AT MY FACEBOOK PAGE, SICKLEWEED AX.

3) Once I see your post, I will add your gathering to the schedule if it is not in conflict with another gathering. If it is in conflict, you will hear from me here or by PM (messaging). I try to update the gathering schedule every 1 - 3 days; if you don't see your gathering in a couple of days after your post, just PM me.

4) You can provide a facebook link to your gathering or confirm it at a later time. Confirming your gathering means you are pretty sure you will be hosting it; you can still make changes to it up until the deadline (will be provided later). To reduce traffic in this thread, I will msg you to ask if you'd like to confirm.

To make changes to your gatherings, you can post here, message me here at coscom, OR msg me at my Facebook page, Sickleweed AX.

NOTE: When you post a request, it means you will be hosting, so please don't post unless you plan to host. Questions on hosting for the first time? Just message me.

HOSTS: PLEASE CHECK BACK ON THIS THREAD OR YOUR INBOX ONCE IN A WHILE!! There might be news of changes to AX that will impact your gathering, so please don't just post a request and then disappear off the face of the Earth. You can also provide me with an alternate means of contact (for example, your facebook page) in your post or through private messaging. I just need to be able to contact you if important news arises that affects you. If I cannot find you but your gathering site has been changed by AX, etc, that's on you.

Please be aware that anyone who asks to host a gathering is doing it as a volunteer, so they are free to cancel at will. Confirmation of a gathering only improves the chances of the host being present but it does not guarantee it.

The only "rules" involved for creating a gathering are: 1) to make sure you're holding it in an open timeslot, 2) that there is not more than one gathering for the same fandom in one day UNLESS there's a valid reason (for example, daytime vs evening events), and finally, 3) that the site you hold your gathering is suitable for the size of your gathering. The last one is based on AX's cosplay gathering guidelines on their gathering sites map.

Hope all this helps!

Persona/SMT
Day 2
Site 3
2:00-4:00 (It was a nightmare making sure everyone got a chance, and we went way over our one hour. Luckily there wasn't a gathering scheduled for half an hour after at that site.)

Thank you!
