Hey Cactusmomma, it appears that the first half of the Touhou Project photoshoot (starts at 12pm) may be overlapping with the Touhou panel (ends at 12:15pm? 30pm?) on Saturday. If possible, I'd really appreciate it if the Touhou Project Photoshoot can be shifted from 12pm ~ 1pm to 12:30pm ~ 1:30pm.

Many thanks for your consideration in advance! And thank you for working on the photoshoot schedules :)

since there aren't any shoots after the homestuck shoot, does that give us a little more time to clear out?

Ok i just have one simple question for the shin megami tensei shoot at 11:30 it says lower ballroom, is that outside or inside cause i am getting confused. Sorry its been a hectic week, healing from some minor surgery and pain killers might not be helping either. Thanks again Cactsumomma for all the hard work you do.

I dont know why but I find it hilarious how after 7:30 there is just a black void. Like someone decided these locations needed to be displaced from time and space for a few hours

Right, but I guess I'm not seeing the primary/fair-weather location then?


it's there, it just isn't separated. for example, it says garden/lower ballroom, the garden is the good weather location and the lower ballroom is the bad weather location.

blatent: No. Homestuck will still need to clear out as planned. Ultimate Pokedex is a programming event that will need time to be set up.

Kai: The ballroom is indoors. We are supposed to have signage showing where they are. This year, the area should be open since panels will be there until around 3 am.

Delta: Got it moved a bit more to give you guys time to get over from the con center.

Aero: Yeah, this guy! :P

Cactusmomma- Thank you very much for the work you've put into this, but I do have a quick question! I don't see Beyond the Boundary on the schedule... is there any way we could squeeze that in?

It's on Saturday at 7:30 at the Tower Overhang. Kind of easy to miss since it's right above the giant black rectangle of doom =)

The schedule looks really great! I was wondering though, would shortening the name of a gathering be allowed? While writing the submission for Dangan Ronpa i was a bit confused and made it needlessly long.

Hey cactusmomma Everyone from Ultimate pokedex really appreciates what you do!

wondering though, that clear out area we got after us we can use that to break down? instead of ending earlier into our hour to break down? sorry if that seems vague...
Leave it to me!

I actually have a question that I've been wanting to ask for a really long time: why have cosplay gatherings at the same time as Masquerade? Along the lines of not wanting panels that are about the fandom of the gathering overlap, wouldn't it make sense not to have cosplay gatherings overlap with the biggest cosplay related event of the entire convention? I know not everyone goes to Masquerade, and therefore not everyone cares, but it's always seemed a little unfair that that people have to choose between either going to a gathering--either as a cosplayer or someone who wants to take pictures--or going to Masquerade.

And I realize part of the problem is just the shear number of groups that want to have their gatherings on Saturday, but is there really no other way of organizing things so that people don't have to choose between a gathering and Masquerade?

I'm pretty sure if they did that, then they'd have less shoots and time slots for them to fill an already pretty crowded gathering schedule that has at least 5-10 new animes being added to it every year.

That's going to be a problem either way, though. There's gotta be other locations where they can do shoots or something they can do rather than have gatherings for cosplays conflict with the biggest cosplay related event of the entire con. =/

I am the host for Type Moon shoot, which is presently scheduled at 6pm Saturday at lower ballroom.(meaning conflict with masquerade) I didn't see any other gathering happened at the same spot prior than us, so I would like to ask if it is possible to move our meeting couple hours earlier than the present time.(same location is fine) Thanks

Cactusmomma,I know it was a lot of work making the schedule, but is it possible to have Uta no Prince-sama gathering earlier? 30 minutes after that is Free! gathering and several people are cosplaying from both and some need more time to change. If possible, change from 11:30-12:00 to 10:30-11:00 or 11:00-11:30 (same location). But if its too much work to change the time, then I will just keep the current time, 11:30-12:00, for Uta no Prince-sama gathering.

Thank you for all your hard work to make the schedule!

Cactusmomma, thanks for taking the time and effort to put all this together! Sorry you have to deal with some whiny babies.

I'm the leader of the Bioshock shoot and I'm glad we could get a time where everyone is available.

One question: for the photoshoots without threads, is there some way to get in contact with the leaders of those shoots? I'd like to get in touch with the person who's running the Majin Tantei Nogami Neuro shoot to see what they're cosplaying, but I don't see a thread so I'm not sure how.

Thank you again! You rock!

Good question. It's also useful for us who submitted a shoot after someone else in fear that no one else did due to lack of communication. It would be good to know if someone else is potentially leading the shoot.

Hmm, okay. But someone had to submit a request, which includes contact information, right? I was wondering if there was any way to access that information, but in retrospect that's a silly question because you probably don't want to give out peoples' contact info without their permission.
