We hosted a event like this year at AWA 2008, which actually went well with about 20 or so folks showing, though a few came late cause we had to move our location...
Some shots from the AWA 2008 one can be found in my Cosplay.com Gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/m58945/
Check the AWA 2008 gallery and check out pages 4 and 5...which has a few of the shots I got with my camera..with the help of some of the people who came to take our pictures..
I also led the charge for the second gathering of this type at Youmacon for Everything Turk. Sadly many didn't show, mostly cause last minute a few other big series did a photoshoot at the same time.
The first run though of the Shin-Ra Reunion Gathering though was a relatively good success though, gathering about 10 people for it's debut at Youmacon.
At this time the final time is still open till it gets closer to the con, but at the moment
Day: Friday @ 4pm,
Saturday after Main FF Complete Gathering
Time: 4pm on Friday and after Main FF Gathering on Saturday
Location: Main Lobby Meetup and move from there
NEW/UPDATE: TIMES POSTED!!!!
Ultimate Turk Gathering is cancelled....
Shin-Ra Reunion IS STILL going on. Two times planned! One on Friday and one on Saturday!
The "Shin-Ra Reunion Gathering" (SRG)
This is basically a gathering of any and all characters of the FF universe that have or do work for the Shin-Ra Electric Power Company. You would be dressed as the character as they where dressed when working for Shin-Ra, Basically this gathering would be the Turks, Rufus, Shin-Ra Scientists and Researchers, SOLDIER, Security Divisions and so on...
So basically characters included here but not limited too would be Cissnei, Cloud (in his SOLDIER 2nd Class uniform of Crisis Core), Kunsel, Zack, Angeal, Genesis, Hojo, Lazard, Turk Vincent, Grimoire Valentine, Lucretia, Reeve, Rude, Reno, Rufus, Elena, Tsung, Hollander, etc.... and so on.
So step on in and discuss. Help me gather some thoughts on what you want to see and so on. I will happily gather the masses if they want to, but I need to know what you have to say and such so I can make the best at organizing it.
NEW: Depending on number of folks and how they feel along with prices of things, I may also look into doing a Shin-Ra Lunch or Dinner event to tie in with the Shin-Ra Reunion event if enough draw interest for it. If a lunch or dinner is planned, then I shall probably be willing to arrange something, though donations towards the cost for the meal would be appreciated...or those who do join in the meal shall pay in there own share on the bill, though I would be willing to reserve the location if needed.
