Or we could have a progressive photo shoot starting in the skywalk and ending in the main parking garage. The stairwells alone would be good for shots.

We were thinking about doing some of these shots on Thur, but that is not a bad idea for Fri as well after the main shoot if some want we can do that,

I figured that's how things would roll. We'd hit a few really good areas like the skywalk, parking garage, some hallways, stairwells and maybe the escalators (perfect because when they enter the mall in the manga). We don't have a time limit so we could spend a good few hours having fun with photos and scenery. What do you think, Supreme Kai?


I figure Thursday night can be our practice run and night for getting more desolate shots inside the hotel, Friday can be the day to really explore and use the outside scenery, etc. The goal is to have fun, get tons of pictures (make sure everyone gets photos taken of them) and really get into character. Maybe at 8pm we can run over and ask the Left4Dead crew to collaborate with us? I also asked Allen Castillo to bring his sports car with Highschool of the Dead on it to the photoshoot to take photos with and he said he would ^__^ He's changing the decals in May so we lucked out <3

You could always use a Boken. That's atleast what Saeko uses in the begining.

Yes. It may sound weird, but take a look at what he'll (Allen Castillo) be bringing to the shoot to take pics with --->

Cars more recent side decal job (Courtesy of Allen Castillo)
Front shot of the car (Courtesy of Allen Castillo)
Side shot before zombies were added to the Shizuka side (courtesy of SoulCrashRon's Photography and Allen Castillo)
Saeko on the side of the car (courtesy of SoulCrashRon's Photography and Allen Castillo)
Another shot of the front (courtesy of SoulCrashRon's Photography and Allen Castillo)

I think now you see why it'll be cool to have.

Yes, that is correct. Loading Dock A. After the shoot is free for all, so we'll probably be there a good hour and a half depending on how many people show up, etc. I'd hit your other photoshoot and show up for this one afterward, try to change as quickly as possible though and make it to our shoot. Hope to collab with Left4Dead around 8pm when both individual shoots are supposed to end. One of us will have to run over and ask the group to collab with us.

Too bad T//T but rules are rules. It's such a pretty Katana. You know me, I'm in love with that thing. Yes, you have been spoken for my dear Saeko-chan.

Bring it just in case to the shoot, never know who might end up needing it =] Never bad to bring extra weapon props.

There's..really nothing hush hush about that.. people use it for photos all the time. Just be mindful of the vehicles and don't be a dumbbutt like the girl who brought a live taser to their gathering and you should be fine.

Will do. Also thank god live steel is banned at acen. I can see some idiot running around with a real or shitty replica and ruining it for everyone. Personally I can't justify bringing a real one there even if it was legal. My WWII katana is worth about $1200. No way in hell I'm letting that thing get stolen.

Actually in most states it legal to carry it in public. However in Illinois you have to have a F.O.I.D. card and you can only carry it at your work or at home. She technically broke the law.

All depends. For my current cosplay I'll have some weapons either way.

I'll just list what I have and you guys can choose what you want me to bring.

List:

M4 with rails(or traditional handguards w/e you want for the photos)
AK-74un
2 Berettas(Revy's from Black Lagoon to be specific)
Colt 1911
M72 Law Rocket Launcher
Raging Bull revolver
Bokken
Police style pump shotgun(have tons of shells too)
Famas SV1

I understand it's against rules to carry magazines on convention areas and would never just walk around with them. Though for a photoshoot can't we have them? Also I have plenty of magazines for the M4 including 2 C-mags(high capacity mags C-mag picture)

Disclaimer ALL firearms discribed are either Airsoft, wooden, or a plastic childrens toy.

Also forgot to mention. If you use my stuff as props you will have to listen to me explain firearm safety which should only take 1 or 2 minutes at most. I will teach you how to hold and respect the items described. Not only does it look nice for photos but it also keeps things safe. No I would never bring projectiles for accidental misfires to ever happen but that still doesn't mean you can wave the guns in an unsafe manner.
