Greetings old school cosplayers! Last year's Old School Gathering was a blast, thank you all for your amazing attendance and awesome cosplay! It really meant so much to me as this was my first time hosting this (or any) cosplay gathering. Continuing the tradition of the gathering that got me into cosplay, I announce the...
Fanime 2017 Old School Cosplay Gathering!
Come celebrate the rich history of Japanese entertainment culture!
This is a hugely open gathering for those of you / us who cosplay as characters from the previous century. Essentially if your cosplay character appears in Anime, Manga, Video Games or Live Action (resident beings of Nebula M78 are welcome) pre-2001 on back, then this is the gathering for you!Day :
Friday, May 26th (Day 1)Time :
6PMMeeting Place (MP)
: Same as Location.Location (L) :
Gatherings G2, Tiered Platform (1st floor lobby by East stairs)
Please note we will be at a different location than last year due to The Hub no longer being available for gatherings, however we're literally ten seconds away from last year's gathering location.
Gatherings G2 is the left wooden platform stair area, alongside the staircases when you first walk in the main entrance of the Convention Center.Cosplayers :
If you would like, please post who your cosplay character is, what title it is from and what year you are representing! As this gathering is a total wildcard mix of different characters, series, studios, and genres - spanning time rather than properties - a definitive list is otherwise not provided. Part of the fun of the OSG is seeing just who shows up.Legal Statement :
Fanime will be taking group pictures during the Gathering/Event this year. If you do not want to be included in those pictures please step aside for those photos. By remaining with the group when the pictures are being taken you give your consent to be photographed.Photography Order :
- timeline shots will be WAY easier this year due to the new location's tiered platforms. Additionally if there is any specific setup or shot you would like, just let me know! This gathering is to celebrate all of us as cosplayers who keep the vintage fire alive.
