The cafeteria is next to the garden right? Is it...the Expoteria or something? It's certainly cheaper than any food at the Hyatt and I notice a lot of people gather there. I'm debating wearing my costume or not. XD Is anyone else?


yep yep, cafeteria is there and there is one in the dealers area too. Both are some what cheeper than the hyatt's icky selection when they bring out the food Tables. If you feel like trucking there is a denny's down the street too.

Yes, that's the place I was trying to think of! Then people can choose whatever they want/want to spend etc. I am aware of budget concerns. I'd hestitate at leaving the actual convention- Denny's is a bit of a hike. Here's a really neat map someone on the forums made. So, let's meet at 2 pm in the Expoteria. I will be in cosplay, I just don't know which character yet. I will let everyone know who to look for soon :D

Hey, does the place in the dealer's room have ice cream? I think I remember that they do (yum).

Mmmm ice cream. Wait...that's probably a really bad idea with cosplay. xD I'd probably get it all over my coat T-T I'll try and bring my friends along. I know one of them will come for sure she's all for LGBT being Bi herself.

Okay, 2 pm on Friday at the Expoteria is official! I'll post it at the beginning of the thread too.

And hey, we have more than a month left so maybe some more guys will show up. Of course, I can always crossplay :P

I'll be crossplaying. But...it's not really the same. xD If anyone is interested, this is moi: Grell Sutcliff I'll be wearing that and my big red coat. I'll probably...be wandering around like a lost puppy looking for everyone.

It's the cafeteria next to the little garden area across from the Hyatt hotel.

It's not all that fancy actually, but yes! Probably. XD It's a gathering place for hungry con-goers and cosplayers. It's connected to the the dealer's hall.

I found a picture! It's actually called The Great Expoteria, whatever. XD Picture! and picture! It's connected right to the dealer's hall and if you're around the Hyatt, it's next to the cute little garden area. Hope this helps people that don't know where the place is.

ah, yes! i looked at your pictures. that is the cafe place that i have avoided my every year attending acen xD i guess this year will be different.

is there any way this group of lgbt people will be able to let those looking for them that they are the lgbt people? going up to random hoards of cosplayers asking "are you from that gay forum thing?" may not go over well xDDD /shot

maybe the use of rainbow flags or such?i donn't have a rainbow flag but can make a rainbow in other stuff. that is pretty much a universal I AM LGBT GAIZ kinda thing...to me at least?

That's a good idea. Now I need to find something rainbow-y...curse my lack of color. Maybe the LGBT resource center at my school has something. XD

I am planning on letting everyone know who I'm cosplaying and providing some pics so people would know who to look for. I was gonna park inside the cafe at a big group of tables or something. If I cosplay Soi Fon (that's who I'm leaning toward for Friday) I also have raven wings tattooed on my back. I suppose I could also wear my butterfly pendant with a rainbow ribbon (I usually wear it for pride day). Someone earlier in the thread asked for some subtlety regarding signs and such.

If I kind of stand awkwardly staring at the table...actually I might try asking for you by your forum name. XD I just realized I have no idea what time check-in is on Friday so I might have to get ready at my apartment and drive there in cosplay. xDD

This sounds like a fun idea! I'm going to try to attend. I'm newer to the LGBT community, so I'd love to meet some more LGBT people at the con. ^_^

We only have 1 month to ACEN! I will be cosplaying Soi Fong. This is me in costume. I did not have the back tattoo at the time. My cosplay friends do call me Raven :)

your cosplay is so well done! thank you for the picture :3 identifying each other will be a lot easier, now.

.. and if anyone can't find you, then all they have to do is look for giant yellow pants..

That's awesome o.o
I've finally figured out which cosplays I will be doing on which days. & Around that time I will be Warrior Paine. My most noticeable tattoos are 7 bats on my upper arm and a My Chemical Romance tattoo on my forearm to make it easier to recognize me. ^^;
