Hmm, I feel like I should bring SOME FF costume for the shoot, but I dunno if I'll be up to anything as crazy as last year's Cait Sith. Maybe my girlfriend and I can do Cid and Edea again (probably Matron-version Edea, since it's easy to wear and hardly anyone does it) - or maybe I'll pull out Celes, since I've only worn it once (but the wig needs detangling).

Ugh, but both of those have long straight wigs, and Chicago is sort of known for its winds... I think I'd honestly be hoping for rain if I bring either of those, just so I wouldn't have to go outside in them. ;)

The wind + long wigs = NOT friends. But hopefully we'll see you there anyway! I'll list your group as ?? for those characters.

Aaaand, we have a SEYMOUR GUADO that I made for a friend!! I may do Wedding Yuna, in that case. We'll see how that goes. So excited!

Edit: My group also has a Thief Paine if we do that sphere, or Black Mage Paine. It'll be either. Probably not for the shoot, but we'll be walking around so come and take pics with us! :D

Okay guys, my partner and I did some exploring at the Hyatt today. He's a photog so he's a pretty good judge of space.

We decided that the best outdoor location would be
- East Outdoor Wall for first choice.
- Tree Patch for second choice [the shoot was there in '09 and seemed roomy-ish].

Alternate first choice for bad weather is the same as last year:
- Convention center: entrance of the dealer hall, right beside the escalators.
- Lower dome for second choice.

Reference pic of most of these.



The east outdoor wall would be perfect. I have so many ideas for this. We will definitely have to arrange groupings at the shoot (i.e. groupings from each roman numeral). I can help you with that if you want. Do you have a time set yet?

Thanks for the encouraging words. :3 Looks like we've got the organization factor worked out. Tomorrow we'll be casing the Hyatt grounds for a better location than the loading docks. Keep an eye out!

And I might want to hit you up for that private photoshoot. Normally a friend does one for me, but I think she's swamped. Do you charge for a block of 30-60 mins?



I do them for free. Usually a 30-40 minute block. Or maybe longer if time permits!

We put in for 12 noon or 1 pm, whichever is more readily available on Saturday. Seemed like a good middle point for people. The shoot is normally split into the different games for a few minutes apiece, but any help would be appreciated. Overall, a lot of the regular FF cosplayers there know the routine.

And huzzah for doing free shoots! PM sent about it.

List updated, as well!

UPDATE: Aerith is coming.

I don't think I need to be specific about which one, since Reno is apparently psychic. Not that I believe in ESP as a Serious Scientist.

Gah I really dislike people like that v_v I enjoy XIII but honestly, it's not the best IMO, they really need to at least play some of the others before judging so harshly.
