  1. I've done photographer meetups at ACen since 2012. It's pretty much just to hang out and talk with people of similar interests. I will for sure be at ACen on Friday the 19th, so this seemed to be a good day and time (before the open cosplay photoshoot many of us will be doing at 4pm, if you are interested in that for 2018, meeting us at this casual hangout would help get the ball rolling). This is casual and as always an unofficial meetup. If you are strictly a cosplayer, feel free to hang out and meet some of us. Just keep in mind this isn't any type of photo taking event. It's just a meeting and conversation thing. :) Friday May 19th from 2:30PM to 3:45PM The meeting spot will be the usual garden area across the street from the Hyatt main entrance, or if rain the statue inside the Hyatt (see the event photo in the Facebook event). Facebook 2017 event page I could potentially have this happen Saturday or Sunday as well depending on interest. Let me know if you want this.

  2. For the past few years we have had a photography meetup at ACen and they usually turn out pretty well. As long as you have an interest in convention or cosplay photography, feel free to stop by and chat. This event is open to anyone. 1:00 PM Saturday. Location: No rain: Garden across from the Hyatt. Rain: Left of the Hyatt main entrance where the sculpture is. http://gallery.photographybanzai.com/img/s4/v65/p716320149-3.jpg Facebook Event Page 2014 thread 2013 thread 2012 thread

This event is open to anyone. 1:00 PM Saturday. Though I currently don't have set plans besides Saturday, I might attend other days. I will try to be at this location at 1pm on any day that I decide to attend. The Saturday meetup is for sure. Location: No rain: Garden across from the Hyatt.

  4. Karoshi-Con 2014

    I'm going to try. Heard about it a few years ago but never made the trip.
  5. Hi guys.... =D Anyone remember me?

    Your username seems familiar. ^_^
  6. Kollision Con 2013

    Pretty fun convention, though I preferred the location from last year. Pictures: http://scottjwaldron.com/p755319297
  7. I love Ninja Turtles. I'll probably be at ACen one or two days and would gladly take some photos of a TMNT group.
  8. Kollision Con 2013

    I should be going on that Saturday and Sunday with camera in hand for cosplay photos. Open to quick and easy photoshoots. :)
  9. Photographers Gathering 2013

    I updated the location in case we have rain on one of the days. Location: No rain: Garden across from the Hyatt. Rain: left of the Hyatt main entrance where the sculpture is. Location Photo
  10. For the past few years we have had a photographers meetup and they usually turn out pretty well. I might only be at ACen for Saturday and Sunday, but I'll still try to host at least one again. As long as you have an interest in convention photography, feel free to stop by and chat. How does 11:30am at the garden sound? We can shoot for both Saturday and Sunday, same place and time. Location: No rain: Garden across from the Hyatt. Rain: left of the Hyatt main entrance where the sculpture is. Location Photo To make it easier for new people, here is a picture of Ben (aka. Fotaku) and Me (on the right) at the last meetup. Facebook event page Last year's thread.

    In a word: YES
  12. Cosplay Competitive?

    I'll just point out that I said I'd like to see more, not always see it. Those examples are certainly not something I'd want to see. Breaking laws or doing something generally stupid or dangerous for the sake of trying to be in character is not something anyone wants or should even consider... Here is a good example of something that works and is common sense safe to do: Celty cosplayer that didn't talk and used her phone to communicate with me after I asked for a photo.
  13. D..Do i get to keep my man card?

    All of our man cards should be intact. It's not something that can be retracted and it's more genetic than anything. :D I remember seeing and liking: Ai Yori Aoshi (I saw this a long time ago, probably only the first season if there are multiple) Hyper Police Angelic Layer Kaleido Star ...Love Hina :D
  14. Cosplay Competitive?

    I tried finding people to interview at a smaller convention recently. I'll just say the percentage of people who made their costumes was pretty low. Even then, some people who made their stuff commissioned props or bought pieces and modified them. So critiquing someone's work might really be a bit difficult after knowing the whole story. :D Cosplay, from my perspective, is more than one piece to the puzzle and no paths to the final product are bad (it's just that I couldn't think up questions to ask people who bought their costumes). Some people might prefer to focus on the "play" in "cosplay" rather than the construction aspect. An average costume with a great performance is often more eye catching. Actually, I wish I saw more of the acting/being in character aspect in cosplay... I think it gets neglected for the visuals. Sure, it isn't easy to do in a convention setting or with people who might not know the character, but I'd like to see more.
