2019 Old School (Pre-2001) Cosplay Gathering
« on: October 31, 2018, 04:16:17 PM »

Greetings old school cosplayers!  Last year's Old School Gathering was spectacular, thank you all for your amazing attendance, awesome cosplay, and for once again putting up with me as everyone's favorite middle-aged nanpa boy - Ryo Saeba!  Last year was my third time hosting the gathering and of course I'm doing it again!  Continuing the tradition of the gathering that got me into cosplay, I announce the...

Fanime 2019 Old School (Pre-2001) 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) that began prior to 2001, then this is the gathering for you!  Although I like to have a decidedly Japanese lean to this gathering, it is not completely exclusive.

Day : Friday, May 24th (Day 1)
Time : 5PM - 6PM (TBA)
Meeting Place (MP) : Same as Location, TBA
Location (L) : TBA

This will be our fourth year hosting! All information is TBA (To Be Announced) at this time. We may be moving to a larger gathering area for 2019 as attendance for 2018 outgrew our gathering location. This is a wonderful problem to have, having so many old school cosplayers attend the gathering - you are all amazing! Moving outdoors to a larger area for the gathering in 2019 means we may have to move it ahead an hour to have good lighting. Details will be smoothed out as FanimeCon gets closer. At this time we're considering Gatherings G6 "Fallout Zone" (going off 2018 locations), the covered outdoor area just outside of the video rooms at the bottom of the concrete terrace.

Yes, I will actually remember the megaphone for 2019!


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 OSCG 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 : 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.

This is an excellent gathering to psyche you up for the convention weekend.  If you're an old school cosplayer, stop by and join us!  Feel free to pop in for a moment to say hi, see some incredible cosplay, pose for some pictures, and continue to prove that just because it's old doesn't mean it isn't awesome!


Thank you so very much.  Let's have another great turnout and continue this wonderful Fanime tradition!

These are high quality, untouched, non-watermarked pictures, essentially everything she shot.  Feel free to tag, share, download, etc. and if you are a cosplayer in a picture you are absolutely welcome to reupload pictures of yourself elsewhere!  If anyone has issue with a specific picture, just let me know here (a PM is fine) and I'll take care of it.  We were without an official FanimeCon photographer this year, so I suppose our photos have become the "official" photos.
