If this is anything like last years shoot outside of the parking garage I would be more than willing to bring guns for people to pose with. I have a wide range and they are spot on with realism. Obviously they have orange tips though.

Hey guys! Glad to see other people who love H.O.T.D! I just recently got into it and instantly knew I would have to do a cosplay! So I will be doing Rei ( battle version)

So if we are trying to set up a photoshot Im just wondering what day you guys were thinking?

@sinosuke.
oh thats awesome!! Thats one thing that always bums me out at acen. I always pick characters who have guns! ^^;
I did buy a cheap ps3 move gun controller that looks decently real but still fake enough where I could walk around with it.

Oh man and a Thursday night shoot would be really cool! Im arriving on Thursday but my other friends arnt coming up till Friday afternoon! it would be cool to hang with you guys!

Ok the thur night is a def go, as for the real photoshoot i am thinking Fri maybe at about 5:30 or 6 pm and was thinking the area where the flag pole is cant think of the name right now but what you all think.

Also def want to try and get everything figured out this week so i will run the shoot is no one cares but i do need a second in command anyone willing to help, it does not really require much just need someone in case something happens with me and the con needs to get ahold of someone

No problem. It was actually one thing that kinda held the photoshoot last year back a little. There werent many weapons.




Anyone know if there are any zombies planned for the shoot yet?

Ok so i think Fri is the main day for the shoot and we can do the Thur shoot for people who can come. So i will try and get things figured out next weekend since i things will calm down for me. I just might need a backup person for the photshoot paperwork just in case something happens with me and they need to get ahold of someone,but we can talk about that next week



I'll be back up and help run the Thursday and Friday shoot =] I was thinking Thursday night we could do a shoot around 10pm or 11pm? I figure that might give everyone enough time to be settled in and be ready for a shoot. I'm thinking 5pm would probably be your best bet. The better the lighting outdoors, the better the pictures will be. (Plus a lot of the series is in daylight)

Hoping we can snag some -- hopefully some might come to us in this group, or we will have to search around, etc.

Can we have specifics on what time we got approved for and place? Or is a time and place not approved for us yet just the fact that we got a shoot?

It's inside the Hyatt right? Like right in the middle of the lobby? That sounds like a perfect place to meet up Thursday. What time do we want to meet up Thursday night? (Can't be earlier than 8pm for me, I've got a few staff duties to attend to during that time and need prep time for getting into cosplay) Also, before the con be sure to drop me your number for texting or calling so I can be sure to get into contact with you if I'm having trouble finding you, etc.

9:30pm sounds perfect ^__^ Seems like just enough time to prepare and be done with tasks. Yuki should update the first post and put in non official gathering Thursday night, 9:30pm and to meet by the brown statue.

I will be bringing back my Rei costume this year and I should have my friend (Sauce-que?)as Takashi with me. I will try to get my friend Miyuka to finally wear her Saeko cosplay. I'll have to talk to the rest of my group to see if they are up for HOTD again this year. If they are then we will have the whole group.

Well, if it helps, we need more zombies. i might get a friend or two to do it. and we found a nice spot behind the parking lot. Looked good. we might have to move around a few times to get it where we want?

So, 9:30PM unofficial meet up at the brown statue in Hyatt on Thursday, April 26th.

Official photoshoot 7:30pm at loading dock A on Friday, April 27th, Got it.

Perfect idea to snag some or even collab with Left4Dead cosplayers.

Edit: How long of a block do we have? Half hour or a full hour photoshoot for Friday?

Looks like its 1/2 hr but lets hope if we want to take some more pics we can find somewhere else looking at the schedule their is nothing else after us, but that does not mean anything since this is a tentative schedule think we should bump it to an hr?

If we can get an hour, DEFINITELY. From what I've seen on here, heard on Facebook, etc -- seems like there's going to be A LOT of people cosplaying it and probably coming to the shoot.

Well, last year it was a nice group but it seemed no one could find each other so when the main group broke off. the 5 or more stragglers started to show up. and it can take more than an hour. and larger groups take longer.
