Oyuki: Those are what will be in the programming book. Aside from a couple of swap arounds, it's pretty much the final. Keep an eye on the first post in the week of con for the changes as well as the mobile app.

Foxtail: They haven't given out that information just yet, but the second they do, I'll toss a link to it or at least where to get it here.

For anyone interested, I took the schedule and organized it into a format that makes it easier to sort out what shoots you want to attend ^^

Should I be concerned that the Alice: Madness Returns meet-up is not on the schedule for ACEN's "app" on Guidebook? :/

If you download the "guidebook" app (available for both android, apple and blackberry)
Then just search for Anime Central and it pulls up very quickly.
It's an awesome app!!! Super convenient you can even make your own schedule ^_^
Even the damn cat is in on it

Apologies for the double post, but just tossing in an FYI that the first post is going to be continually updated up until Thursday morning with the weather report and any instructions on where to go in case of Chicago weather!

Is anyone doing Disney cosplay and showing up at 1pm as noted in the acen app? I'm going as Russell from up and would love to team up with other Disney folk!

I know a few people that will be going to the Disney meet. We'll be bringing peanut butter sammiches for a Lilo and Stitch duo at least!

This might be a dumb question but kind of confused. Is there anyway we can move the gurren lagann group indoors due to some cosplayers wont have that much clothing even if jackets are brought.

So, the app and the scheduele don't exactly match. Have some shoots been canceled? (i.e. the Nana/Ai Yazawa shoot) or are they just not showing up on the app?

rose: Go for it, just please check in with the timekeeper at the location first so they can follow you and take care of their job at the same time!

Love: Nope, go with the schedule. The app has missed a couple meets, so please refer to the schedule in this thread and in the programming book.

and now, from a pm that held the best questions for this weekend on rain backups (thanks again, code2distroy!):
Where in the convention center exactly? That part right inside the doors before you get to the shops? Or can I just claim that circle area you mentioned (though I worry that, especially on Saturday around 2pm, it will be crowded b/c of those standing in line for a badge)?
- If it's raining absolute cats and dogs, shuffle to the inside of the con center lobby or to the fountains. I'd recommend the inside due to temperature and the fact that the lighting is marginally better. For those of you with DSLR's, the lighting inside is -all- halogen.. pack your flashes accordingly.

Will there be IRT or some other Acen authority to regulate the traffic around so the photographers and cosplayers can work quickly and uncrowded?
- IRT is..everywhere. Just look for the black vests.. and just in case you need to, grab their callsign off the black and orange nametags on their left breast pockets. I'm going to be talking to their supervisors when I get on-site tomorrow to let them know. If anything else, ask them to give me a call over the radios.. my name is Bri and I will be under masquerade department for further reference. They usually have someone stationed in the garden area and right inside the con center by the restaurant. 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! I don't recommend taking the covered walkway as it takes twice as long to get through and will be smelling like fanboy by Friday night.

Will there be extended photoshoot time due to having to move people?
- 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.. but please make sure that as a group leader, you have a list of picture ideas on hand and do not let anyone try and take over the shoot. 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.

Should we meet up at the original photo location (in Bleach case C-D) and then move to our designated convention center location?
- Please do meet up at your original location so no one gets lost!

Who are the time keepers you speak of? Or is that me? (sorry this is my first time doing a photoshoot)
- 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.

One more question, I promise XD Is there a specific location for the gurren group to go indoors or do we pretty much have to figure out what is available? I'm sry this is my first year actually leading the group and in the past we have been lucky with the weather lol Who knows maybe it will be warm with this weather but just in case.

Pretty much the only place inside that we have approved is the lower dome.. so I'm going to be talking to my DH tomorrow when we get there to see what can be done to help with crowd control.

also I read this on the other thread for rain days:
Loading Docks A-D -> Inside of the convention center or to the traffic circle fountains in front of the con center

should we follow this plan instead?



Thank you so much for helping all the cosplayers deal with these changes! You are awesome!

Rose: that would be for the big groups meeting at the docks. It kind of alleviates traffic by splitting the groups up.

Foxtail: it won't. This is chicago weather, so it changes more than a cosplayer.


So I'm at the hotel now... free wifi! Masquerade/costume events is located in DFW and there's schedules taped down in there.
