Looking for locations and backdrops specifically for small private photoshoots or hall shots, not group meetups.
For example: mosaics, wall sculptures, floor tiles, large geometric designs, etc.

I've got a costume from a very abstract cartoon (kinda Escher-style) with lots of geometric and colorful backgrounds and I'd like to have a suitable photo location. I'm guessing there are interesting places not in the main convention area or in random sections I've never been. Some photos from past ACENs have awesome floor tiles shot from above or mosaic tile walls and I have no idea where they were shot at (if I could remember whose photos or the year I would ask them myself but it's been a few years).

The only examples I know of are the small orange mosaic tile wall in one wing of the ACen hotel, and a wavy glass wall sculpture at the RenCenter for Youmacon.
ACen 2013 plans:
Terra w/ FFVI group
Malory Archer w/ Archer group

(maybe)
Mabel Pines w/ Gravity Falls group
Fionna and Cake (regular and ballgown) w/ Ice Queen

Last year was my first time to ACen and during shoots/location scouting, a couple of areas I noticed; the mosaic tile walls are in the south east area of the hotel (with the glass dome roof). Also the east wing (hall leading to the suites) has some angular patterned carpeting. Some of the photos I took have these in the background - http://gosenchi.com/?p=381

Unfortunately, we can't have any photoshoots in the upper dome with those mosaics. Sad face, I know. The admin offices are there and IRT will show you downstairs.

Do you have a reference of the cosplay?

It's the main character from The Thief and the Cobbler. At this point I'll probably just save it for another time, once I find a location.

^ This particular scene is B&W but all the backgrounds are very geometric.

That sounds unfortunate, does this mean no photos of individual cosplayers in the upper dome area?

Mhmmm. They don't want anyone up there. There isn't even a weapons check desk this year.

The only places I can think of that you might be able to get away with like that are up the escalators inside of the convention center (If you're coming in from the front doors, they're up to the right. If you're coming in through the habitrail, it's right before you go down the little ramp/stairs to go down the escalators) -OR- if you can get away with it (ask the hotel people first, please) is the eating area at the Embassy. It's kind of a gardeny/fountainy area that's pretty classy. They've tried to modernize everything else. Otherwise, if you're willing to travel into the city itself, there's some understreet tunnels by the gardens of Millennium Park that look like this: http://www.acparadis...lay.php?p=34942
