Wonderful! Thank you so much for stepping up to organize. I'm super happy there's an official gathering now, and that day and time sounds great. It won't even be very dark then knowing Cali, so that's perfect. My friend and I will attend as Yami Yugi and Yami Bakura! Can't wait to see everyone there!

Yay, glad you and your friend will be able to make it! Please help spread the word, especially if you see any YGO cosplayers at the Old School gathering. ;)

I've been keeping an eye on sunset times the past week, and there should still be enough light at 7:30 come Memorial Day weekend. I requested an indoor location just in case, but we can always move outside if the natural lighting is cooperative. I don't anticipate that our gathering will be that big anyhow.

Hi guys -

I'm glad that people still care for Yu-Gi-Oh and Bleach from what I've found on here. This would be my first time going to Fanime and I was thinking about cosplaying as Seto Kaiba maybe since I'm tall and kinda have his look. So I'll be interesting in joining if that's cool? I'll let you guys know more!

Thanks!

That would be awesome if you were able to join as Kaiba! Hopefully we'll make it onto the official gatherings list soon and get a set time down. I also hope you enjoy your first Fanime. :)

Oh great! Thanks for that info, I haven't even thought to check the facebook pages recently. Imperial must have their hands full, no doubt, but I'm glad it's posted there! Thanks again~

Less than two weeks to go until Fanime! I hope everyone's cosplays are going smoothly.

Just dropping by with the ending theme for Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, the newest spinoff series. Think we'll see any cosplay from it???

Fanime is almost upon us! Here are a few reminders for our gathering on Friday:

1. We will aim to start about 2-3 minutes after 7:30pm, to give everyone a chance to find the location and decide if we would like to take advantage of outside lighting. My aim is to finish in 10-15 minutes so those who want to head to the Swap Meet can get in line.

2. I am 90% sure I will be dressed as Reiji Akaba from ARC-V, but on the off chance that I will not be able to cosplay that evening, I will be wearing some sort of shirt with Yugi on it so that y'all can find me.

3. I will also be holding a Yu-Gi-Oh! + spinoffs logo sign (see the first post in this thread), so keep an eye out for that if that's easier.

Hope everyone will be able to make it on Friday, and please do spread the word if you see other YGO cosplayers during the day~

Thank you to everyone who made it out today! I hope it was a fun experience, and I loved seeing the amazing cosplays and hearing your creative ideas for poses! Also, huge shout out to our official Fanime photographer, who stayed late in order to accommodate our 7:30 time slot. :)

I'm hoping to have unofficial photos up by Monday. In the meantime, here is a link to a photo of our last pose -- enjoy! https://www.facebook.com/events/1435803723148850/permalink/1476876219041600/

Big thank you to the Yu-Gi-Oh! cosplayers who also came out to the Old School Cosplay Gathering earlier in the day!
