Greetings everybody, thought I would get a bit of an early jump of getting the gathering topic up.

2017 ended up a bit of unexpected outcomes. On my end, I had no clue that doing the makeup for Harley would take longer than expected which resulted in a missed opportunity. Outside of that and a few minor things, the other unexpected outcomes were on the positive with how the gathering went. Working off a written list/notepad+pen did make going through the order much better than in previous years. No clue yet if the "rotating system" returns in 2018 (internally feeling awful that I could not help out due to costume prep), but I do hope it can make a return. Additionally, I've been taking some considerations on a few major changes for 2018, those being...

Change of location (from "The Fallout Zone" to "Off-Site"): This came about when I was taking photos of a gathering on Friday over at the park area stairs near the San Jose Museum of Art and the Fairmont. Looking at the area, it would appear to be a nice backdrop for a gathering like this and with how the stairs are arranged, it would look to be large enough for a group our size.

Change of time (to an earlier time?): This was the other change that I started to think about. The time ranges for the gathering throughout the years have fluctuated through an afternoon range (as early as I believe 2pm to as late as I believe 4-5pm). For 2018, I'm wondering if aiming for an earlier time would be a better option? Earliest time I may consider for this could be 11am but the time could still remain around 2pm, so we will have to see what some think of this idea.

With the new year coming soon, you all know what comes with it.....

For all of the work that presented to the CGD, I really wanted to express my thanks to them for making all of this possible. The only small nitpick that I could think of was the equipment break down (megaphones becoming unavailable), but the CGD reps that was helping out at the gatherings were more than helpful to make our gatherings run without any sort of hitch. Speaking as the DC gathering organizer, I really appreciated the help and offer all my thanks to everyone in the CGD.

Updating with a photo shot order

Updating the gathering list and will start posting a shot order

Here we are in April, things should be picking up for all costume-wise

Little under two months now, feel the excitement

It is highly likely that I'll be attending as White Rabbit (Jaina Hudson). ^-^
I'm just hoping I don't oversleep/get lost. ^-^'

Heh, you should be fine time wise and there should be maps that show where each gathering location is

List updated along with the updated "confirmed" info for the gathering

Updating gathering attendees posting via Facebook event

Included Facebook event link to the first post

Gathering has been submitted, feel free to spread the word to bring all interested

Thanks for giving us the update on things as they stand

Three months to go, hopefully everyone is hard at work on their costumes :)

Also a psuedo-mini bump to see if I can get any takers to help with Marvel gathering

Still waiting for gathering stuff to officially open up in order to get things full swing

Chances are we'll try for the same day (Saturday) and within the same time frame (between 2pm and 4pm for start times)

Hey everyone, think of this as a bit of a placeholder description until we come closer to the start of official gathering submission period.

Part of me is semi-struggling with the thought of running DC and Marvel again, when I would rather just run one ala the "rotating system" that I did want to implement starting last year where myself and one other person can alternate the running of the DC and Marvel gatherings each year to make things a little less hectic. However, due to not being able to find a person that could run DC last year (I was running Marvel), I had to step in to run both. Although things ran surprisingly well, I did still want to try running the "rotating system" for 2017.

That is unless people would want me to run both again.

ANYWHO, new year means.....

Good to know this info now

I saw a marvel cosplay gathering That wasn't near the steps outside, it was indoors.   Where is that one posted In advance?

Probably an unofficial gathering or you might be confusing it with the DC gathering that was relocated inside

Have to say that with the change to a new cosplay gathering staff, things did go pretty well.

Kinda do wish that there would be some kind of "gathering location suggestions" type of deal for next year. I bring this up due to what happened with the DC gathering and the Undertale gathering. Basically; Undertale got too big, gathering staff came over to me and asked if they could switch spaces with DC (moving from G9 in the pit area to G4 with the two stages on the first floor of the con center). Having the knowledge of which large gathering locations would be best suited in cases like this arise could be useful to both cosplayers and photographers (I got a little worried that the setup of G4 would complicate things from a positioning and photo perspective).

I would also second the megaphone idea. Last year, I did not have a megaphone on hand for the Marvel gathering and had to yell loud, causing me to lose my voice (being sick did not help matters). This year, I ended up borrowing a megaphone from a friend of mine and it was a total lifesaver for both Marvel and DC gathering (especially with the relocation process).

Other than those two things, the gathering process went pretty well and the gathering staff was helpful both in the planning stages prior to the convention (props to you Imperial for the hard work you had this year) and props to the gathering staff that worked the con (the ladies that worked the gathering check-in table, the guy that helped me out when migrating the DC gathering). It made what looked to be such a daunting task (running two gatherings back-to-back) a much more plesant experience.
