Post Official Photoshoots

Hello. Connecticon has been nice enough to grant me the role of organizing and posting the days and times for the cosplay shoots. But of COURSE I'm not gonna do it without feedback from you guys. Here's a list of possible shoots that can be done.

All of the below time are subject to change, so please consult the final poster that will be AT the con. ALSO Please check the judging times and know when you need to be judged for your costume, check in for the Masq, hand in music, etc. Shoots shouldn't last more than 30-45 minutes, but it still a good idea for you and your group to have a definite time in mind.

Connecticon Forum Members (Friday Noon)
Naruto (Friday at 2pm)
American Cartoon & Webcomic (Friday 3pm)
Gravitation (Friday 3:30)
Sailor Moon (Friday 4pm)
Live Action Movie [Harry Potter, Star Wars, Johnny Depp...] (Friday 5pm)
Overall Video Game (Friday 5:30)
The musical starts at 5 o'clock. Do you want these times moved?

Bleach (Saturday Noon)
Cosplay.com Members (Saturday 12:30)
Fruits Basket (Saturday 1pm)
FMA (Saturday 2pm)
Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts (Saturday 3pm)
Manga Characters (Saturday 4pm)
Masq check in is at 6, so a group can have the 5 and/or 5:30 time slot


Overall Shoujo Anime Shoot (Sunday Noon)
Overall Shonen Anime Shoot (Sunday 3 or 4, depending on when the chess game ends)
FMA part two (Sunday after shonen shoot)

Connecticon Forum Members


In the Naruto shoot thread there is talk of two shoots due to the popularity. Do you think any other show/game/manga/movie/etc. deserves this? Please post times and days of availability if you plan to wear a costume that fits in with any of these shoots or another possible one you'd like to suggest.

Shoots will take place in the open area in front of the dealers room (where I'll be posting the final, official sign of DOOM) because weather is unpredictable and it gives congoers easier access to photographing all your lovely faces (those not on the forums wanna see you too!). If you personally wish to have a shoot outside then feel fre to take it outside after!

Also, if you are interested in a shoot mentioned above or wish to make your own, please mention how many people you know of that can attend in costume. If you know you will be the only character then please do not ask for a shoot time. If you are a large grou of cosplayers that cannot make a shoot time, PM or e-mail me about it and I'll see what I can do.

AND ONE MORE THING
What do you guys wanna DO at these shoots? Want to get a picture of all the military people from FMA? Want a shot of just people from Final Fantasy 10 and 10-2?

Do you think FMA could be moved to Sunday? Having the Bleach, Naruto, and Final Fantasy shoots all on Saturday that might create problems, since they're all fairly popular..

Hey, if you split the Overall Anime Shoot into one shoujo and one shonen, can you make them not right after each other? Because since I have costumes from both shoujo and shonen anime - I would like to join both if I can.

Alright, I'll see what I can do. I figured nice overall shoots let peopel from lesser know/cosplayed shows to have a time to shine as well. For you personally, what day is better for each?

The only issues with Sunday is that the chess game takes up a big chunk of the day. The Saturday Naruto fan gathering was planned by members on this forum. I did most of the times beased on when people on the forums were already planning their gathering. Are you personally in two?

*nods* True, true. Sunday is good for both, just not immediately after one another. I think if they were an hour apart, at least, that would give me time to run back to my room and change. Maybe two hours to be safe, if that's possible. It's no biggie if ya cant ^^ I'm just like... a photoshoot junkie or something XD I like to join as many as possible.

I would be doing the FMA and the Naruto shoot on Saturday (since I may not be able to do the Naruto on Friday) .. but it's a big deal if it can't be moved. ^_^

I have costume changes to do that day as well, but I also have a car to keep my costumes in once I change out of them.

I'm not sure, but I think having the shoujo at noon (ladies first) and shonen at 3 should work. If not then push back to 4. After I talk to people AT the con (I don't believe the time is finalized yet) I'll post official times on the board.

Sounds good to me.

Now a random, related question - Is Digimon a shoujo or shonen anime ?

Uh.... um... ::head 'splodes:: I'd almost say it depends on who you're cosplaying. If you're being a guy, go for shounen. If you're a girl, go shoujo. It's the only thing I can think of because it's so in between. If I HAD to choose, I'd say shounen.

I thought it'd be shounen too. And I'll be cosplaying a guy character, so that works, I'll wear my Digimon costume (Joe) to the shounen shoot ^^.
