Let me know if you'd like your pics displayed here as well and I'll link them. Thank you!! :D

I loved the way this gathering turned out! It wasn't huge, but it was certainly bigger than I had expected. We will for sure be bringing this back again next year!! However, we'll more than likely still be going for a Friday slot, maybe a little later in the day though so more people have the chance to make it. XD Thank you all for attending last year though!!! :D It was awesome!!!

Oh, and I'll be having my lovely co-hosts SilverUnicorn297 and Shikilchijo

Awww, I'm sorry to hear that. We decided on Friday so that way it wouldn't interfere with the large and more popularz gatherings. If it ends up being a larger than expected gathe ring this year, we will start deciding on changing the day.
Title: Re: Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts Gathering 2017!!
Post by: pokefan995 on May 25, 2017, 02:55:58 PM
Hope everyone's ready to meet up tomorrow! As stated before, we are having this gathering off site and it is shown in the first post where it is, as well as a Draco and Harry waiting in front of the convention center to help guide those who need help. Can't wait to see everyone!!! :D

We're still trying to figure it out. But we are taking all input into account. :) we had it Friday last year and a lot of people said they couldn't male it, but we're hoping if we do it later on friday, more people can make it, or later on sunday, it won't conflict with other gatherings. But either way, thank you for the input. :D

It's on Sunday. Either the post hasn't been updated or was updated before we had an official date. We'll fix though. :)

Bumping up again now thay people are finalizing their cosplay lists. XD also, same as last year, about half an hour prior to the gathering, we will be waiting out front near the tree thing to help guide people to the gathering spot since it is off site. Those who know exactly where it is, awesome. We will be there on time and start heading there about 10-15 minutes before hand.

Thank you all for another amazing year!!! There will be photos posted fairly soon and I've updated the first post with the link to the Fanime Official photos. I already can t wait to have everyone there again next year and hope everyone had a blast!! :D

Also, I do deeply apologize about the location mix up. Next year we will be more organized and have someone at the snake statue instead of in front of convention center to help guide people.

They may not be up yet, she said it may take a few days to upload. But they will be in that section when they get uploaded. I'll check again to make sure I have the right link though

Updated the first post to include my pics. :) If you see yourself, let me know.

Also, my pics are only from the first gathering. My co-host that ran the second part will be getting me the links for the pics photographers took at that one.

And finally, I'll be waiting until later this week to see if the fanime slickpic gets updated with the official pics. If they aren't I'll be getting in contact with fanime gathering department. Thank you for you patience as far as that goes. :)
