Does anyone have any suggestions on what hair product I should use to keep my hair from blowing around while still keep a look like I don't have gel or anything in my hair?

kent, i suppose it really depends on your hair's texture and thickness. but i just tried this stuff called Clear Ice that my mom got from a beauty shop, it works just like any other gel but it didn't leave a residue. my hair tends to be wirey and thick, but it's been thinning as of late. if you have fair hair, it may still be too much slick'em for the job. you could browse a beauty shop and ask a manager. or if u have a barber...no one knows hair better ^^.

Got2beglued freeze blasting spray (or any alcohol based spray really) is excellent. I use it in all my wigs and used it to keep my bangs away from my face when I was growing them out because I didn't want to clip them back lol.

Just make sure you brush it out before you spray it so it doesn't streak because what the hair looks like when you spray it is basically the shape it's going to be.

Due to certain circumstances I won't be able to show up to these two photoshoots DX
But I already have someone who will step in as the leader [Just waiting for a definite yes so I won't say who just yet] so don't worry :>

Any word yet on the new leader of this gathering?

^_^ I think she means me. Unless...she found some other new leader when I wasn't looking o_o

Friday I hope my wig won't be askew. I'll be running to acen in my cosplay. Which means I'll be shunpoing from bus to bus and train to train...Wait...Rukia doesn't use shunpo. SHE DOES NOW!!! *dashes around the room*

Ahem...anyway I really should get that list put together and printed comprehensibly. Otherwise we'll have to work off my memory...and that is a terrifying thought >.>

Anyone think they can get there 15-30 minutes early if they want some visual tips on how to "perform" during a photoshoot? I could run through some things I've picked up along the way. Gotta wait on a friend so I'm hoping to get to Acen by 3pm...but it may be closer to 4pm if she's held up with class.

you've made me a very happy fangirl. I'll try to force my sis into nanao for the friday shoot. she won't have a book though since this is kinda last minute...basically the first costume i ordered was too small for me >.< but it fit her and the seller let me keep it and just sent me a larger size. So now I have 2 uniforms...and my sis was like, "I'll wear it o_o". And I was like, "O.o ok! You have glasses and hair! Be Nanao!". And she was like, "Get away from you crazy loon...>.>" But then she agreed :3

This would be awesome if you can do this. I'm a newbie to cosplaying.

Haha I will try my best. Hopefully I don't get lost on my way to the C dock. e_e i often get lost on my way to photoshoots. You'd think after several years I'd figure the path out huh?

Rule one of cosplaying: have fun with it
Rule two: be creative

When accuracy can't be reached of a costume, then the best thing to do is to make it obvious you're not trying to be accurate. You're making the character your own. I hate to bring up Sailor Bubba...images still give me nightmares, but he was extremely clever! And one person in Florida couldn't find a green turtleneck in the middle of summer, so they completely revamped their Haku (naruto) outfit and made themselves Angel Haku. Stuff like that always goes back to rule number one of having fun. Cause you can't take good pictures if you're not having fun :3

I've decided that I will be school-boy Shinji Hirako most of friday (gonna be the 9th Doctor for a Doctor Who shoot later that evening) but I'll be trenchcoat/hollow mask Shinji for the photoshoot on Saturday (if thats still the day and the schedule is accurate).

Also I've not done a huge photoshoot before, mostly impromptu or tiny gatherings, so I dunno what it entails, if anything, besides group shots and poses and stuff.
My costumes
My main cosplays have been Shinji Hirako (Bleach) and the 9th Doctor (Doctor Who).

Updates:

  • Update 4/26 (and probably the last?): Due to the cold and wetness of our ACEN festivities, I think it best that, if not Friday, then definitely Saturday we will have the shoot INSIDE the convention center. We'll likely be going through Expoteria to get in (depends on where our time keeper leads us). I've got an idea of where some good spots would be for our group, but nothing has been confirmed by the PTB so I shall wait and see (and wing it) when we get there. Please arrive on time so you don't get lost. I'll be there early. Maybe, if people straggle in, the time keeper will let us hold up for a few minutes to get as many as we can, but we don't want to hold up other shoots. Be sure to drag random Bleach-ers along (not too roughly) and make sure everyone knows where we'll first be meeting.

  • Update 4/25: From Cactusmomma (aka CM) (aka Bri). If it rains, she recommends inside the convention center for warmer temperature and better lighting.

    Quote

    I'm going to see if it will be ok to have someone (possibly the timekeepers) escort everyone through the exhibit hall as a shortcut since it's going to be so cold. Otherwise, it will be time to play parade and walk the long way around!


    Quote

    We might be able to give a little extra time throughout the day since there will be a couple meets that won't show up or will decide to move elsewhere.


    Quote

    If people have specific requests, but you're running short on time, ask if you can grab the needed people and move off to the side after your timeslot is up.


    Quote

    Please do meet up at your original location so no one gets lost!


    Quote

    Timekeepers will be staff members stationed at each location to help out with information, letting you guys know how much time you have, and will be taking headcounts and possibly pictures for our own records and fandom trending researching.


  • Update 4/25: Weather and location possible change
    If it rains, the location will change for what is listed below. Alternative options are: 1) the main entrance to the convention center (the area with those fountains and where the cars turn around at)and 2) somewhere in the Convention Center. I'm asking Cactusmomma now for more detailed information. Please keep an eye on her updates about photoshoot location, times, and weather at Cosplay Gatherings 2012


dates and times haven't changed.

this will be the largest one i've been in as well. but it's pretty much the same from what i've seen. it just last longer b/c there's more to go through. I've drawn up a list of shots. I'll post it now. Feel free to add suggestions. After all, this is our shoot and we want to show off to the best of our abilities ^_^


Hints

Quote

Reminder: I will be holding a pre-shoot meeting at least 15 minutes before each shoot at the shoot location to answer questions and give some photo advice/feedback on poses. There will be other photoshoots going on in the area so we'll have to find a place to stay out of the way and not disrupt the photographers.

Note: It's good to practice in the mirror what facial expressions and poses look good for your character.

Important for better shots: Don't look at the camera if you're like me and can't keep the "did they snap the shot yet?" look off your face.

Tip: Look at the person holding the camera. Make sure to focus on what's in front of you. If there is no one as if there is. Or, be sure to position yourself so you won't look awkward from every angle.

Windy Days: Use the wind to your advantage. Let your capes billow and your hair float. Just try to keep the wigs from blowing off. It's okay to hold your hair in the wind, just look natural (not annoyed or frustrated) while you're doing it. The wind is your friend =)


Since we all got somewhere to be, I'm organizing the shot orders and the time-frame so you can have an idea of what's to come and how long it will take and plan your day accordingly. It really will depend on how many people there are and if we have the cosplayers to fill in certain shots.

Time

Quote

TIME SLOTS
Friday Time: 5:00-5:30 LOADING DOCKS C-D (across the street from Hyatt's main entrance. can't miss us)
Saturday Time: 2:00-3:00 LOADING DOCKS C-D

Shots: hold for 10 seconds each, plus an additional 5-10 after the cameras seem done

Introduction: 2 minutes (letting viewers, photographers, and cosplayers know what to do and what to expect when)
Group shot category: about 7-10 minutes total
Interactive category: about 15-20 minutes + time for requests for the next 5-10 minutes (20-30 total)
Projected total time of photoshoot: 40-60 minutes

Come only for the early shots if u just want yourself pictured with your specific group. Stay if you want to get active and make history!


Photo Shots (will change depending on cosplayers. saturday will likely be the largest)

Group shots
: Just stationary "in character" posing. "In character" meaning however you wish to portray the character. What their personality is to you. I don't expect every Ichigo fan to see Ichigo as the same kind of person.

Keep moving, changing partners. Be careful with props not to hurt anyone or break anything. You don't have to be quick or move constantly. Hold the pose for 5 seconds (I'll be counting) and then switch partners. We can do this shot for 1-2 minutes.

Not yet, but I shall make one! I wasn't expecting a Kukaku, but I'm very happy to see one is coming ^_^. I'm thinking a strong woman scene, since Kubo has admitted that, the reason there are so many strong willed women in Bleach is because most of the women he knows are very outgoing. Now that I think about it, Orihime is probably the only who won't jump up and kick a guy's butt. Then again, she slapped poor Ulq anyway =(. It'd be easier if we can find a Ganju. Then we can have you torment him while Yoruichi torments Byakuya or Ichigo. Maybe we will find a Kaien (either espada or shinigami)! Then it can be part of the Parallel Universe in which he's still alive and fighting, or Kukaku has defeat him instead of Rukia. Or we can double team him ^_^ (me being a Rukia and all). We'll figure something out if there's more Shiba cosplayers.

Anyway, for a Strong Woman pic, I'm thinking all the *ehem* mature ladies of bleach like Kukaku, Yoruichi, Matsumoto, Nel (grown), and Halibel are together being all sexy and such and have a single Ichigo (or one for each woman) suffering under their glory...either by nosebleed (poor guy) or physical abuse like ichi usually is. Again, do not hurt the Ichigo cosplayers, we need them alive and well :3.

If you have any ideas that you'd like to do, feel free to let me know ^_^ I'm open to about anything legal.

That, my fellow fan, is an excellent question. I shall ask the PTB (aka Cactusmomma) right away for more details ;>.> Meanwhile *does antiraindance*

EDIT: Keep an eye on Cactusmomma Updates. CM says "Loading Docks A-D -> Inside of the convention center or to the traffic circle fountains in front of the con center". I'd like to take the traffic circle (that fountain is awesome) if the lighting isn't too bad or it isn't too crowded.

Cosplay Gatherings 2012


I'm trying to figure out if we should meet at docks C-D anway and then move to the fountain. I don't want those who haven't been keeping up with the forum to get confused. If we wait up for people, we'll have to have a little more time for the shoot (which I have also asked CM). Otherwise, if programming notes that we'll be either at C-D OR the fountain OR somewhere inside the Convention Center (exact location TBA...meaning I have no idea and asked CM) then we can just head to the best area right away and hope the unaware catch on quick. I want a place with a lot of exposure and publicity, and I'm starting to think all the way inside is better for that. I don't want to get in the way of the shops though. There seems to usually be open space along the walls.

It looks like it is going to rain on Saturday.


Hush you! My antiraindance worked last year T^T sort of! Think if we ignore it, it will go away?

I'll be keeping an eye on weather patterns. I'm glad we won't really be in grass. Wet grass and straw sandals with tabi socks makes for one unpleasant experience. Though all water based cosplayers will be excited :blink: Talk about atmosphere. Halibels and Kaiens should be pleased.

EDIT: All new edits from now on that I make to my posts (especially post #74) will be in bold and red like this message. Please check it regularly (and yes I will make updates to the forum in new posts anyway, but it'll be easier to follow in post #74.

btw, in addition to what i've written, I want to let you guys know I can only get on the computer after 6pm CST due to life (and usually that's closer to 9pm CST). So I will definitely check every night until acen. Please check for updates and answers to your questions between 6pm-12am if you wish to catch me in action. :thumbup:

Yay! new update to post #74 concerning location change if it rains.

*rambling*
Currently there is a 40% chance of rain throughout friday and saturday. though it's looking to be evening and over night rain at the highest possibility, i'm holding dear to the old montage of "the weather man never knows what he's talking about". Said it was raining in Downers grove that very minute i was looking at the forecast. I looked outside the window at work and was like "Um...no it's not." Didn't even get my feet wet today. Lately the wind has been blowing most of the storms over the lake. Keep it up! Everyone blow east!

Ok I just have to post this example of a do and don't in a photo. I chose these cosplayers of Buso Renkin namely b/c they are interacting with each other. One is doing wonderfully while the other...is kinda bringing me down.

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2248479/

First guy, Papillion, is doing great. You see the movement all throughout his body and can tell he's arguing with the Kazuki (second guy).

Problem is, Kazuki cosplayer...he looks like 1) he's bored, 2) he's laughing, 3) he doesn't care. Now I'm sure none of the above is true b/c we all know how much fun cosplaying is. But the main problem is that he's not in character. He's playing the thick eyebrowed stereotypical hero of the show. And yet the villian seems more enraged at injustice than he. Kazuki is not a nonchalant character, frequently getting riled up at the smallest of things. Therefore, he should be "engaged" in the argument with his rival. Not taking the scream fit like a sissy :thumbdown:

Of course, that's only if you want your pictures to look like this: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2248477/

bravo random buso renkin cosplayers, wherever you may be.

noo the rain is lies! lies! anyway, odds are even if it is NOT raining during the time of our photoshoot, we'll move inside due to cold and wetness. Don't want folks catching sick. So I'm hoping we can move into a large well lit area that won't block people but will still attract attention. I'll be outside in the cold and rain 15 min ahead as promised (moving it from 30 min ahead due to weather conditions) to answer questions, get things in order, and hunt down our time keeper. Please grab bleachers on your way.

radicallay, i will love you forever just for bringing a grimmjow. now we have aizen, grim, and ulq confirmed. I hope they will all be on the same days o_o. Donde estas Gin y Tousen? Probably getting Aizen's tea ready...

Thanks again to everyone who made it to the photoshoots :3. I'll be uploading pics and videos as they become available. Please do so as well ^_^. And, Fanservice Renji gave us a special treat (besides being shirtless). He put us in one of his music videos on Saturday. I saw someone's phone upload of it, but i want to wait until the full video is edited and posted before sharing in the mean time, google Fanservice Renji and like his facebook page to support our fellow cosplayer =). You may be in his video as well if you were early for the saturday photoshoot.
