Title: Fanime 2018 Cosplay Gatherings News Update 2/23
Post by: Imperial on October 26, 2015, 02:31:50 PM
Hello Everyone,

Hey everyone! We’re only a few weeks from con time, and we’re so hyped at all the submissions that we’ve gotten so far! We’re at 60 approved submissions so far this year, with some more on the way!! We’re here to give an update on those approved submissions, along with some exciting news!

Publications:
First off, we’re happy to announce that our Cosplay Gatherings will be printed in the books this year!! It’ll be printed with a map and time and place and everything, so it’ll make it way easier for people to find and attend them!! To have your gathering included in the books, your gathering must be submitted and approved by APRIL 27th!! We’re still accepting submissions a little after that, but we won’t be able to put it in the book!

Large gatherings:
For gatherings that anticipate having over 60 people, we’ve been told that we have to schedule to have extra security on site for them. The deadline for those are APRIL 15th!! It’s right around the corner, we know. We kind of got this notice really last minute, so if you anticipate a gathering that large but haven’t been able to fully submit/get approval, please message us so we can still ask for that extra security! We can still accept the large gatherings after this date, but please let us know sooner than later so we can get the required extra security!!

Staff deadline:
This is a small extra we’re throwing in here-- if you are interested in staffing with our department this year but have been putting it off, now’s the time to throw in your hat! We’re always looking to bring on more staff that are passionate about cosplaying and helping people organize and have fun :) your experience level doesn’t have to be top star quality (though we appreciate it if you have that!), we’re really more looking for people who have passion about this stuff as much as we do! The deadline for that is right around the corner too, APRIL 14th!! Message us to let us know that you’re interested before that day and we’ll talk :)

Alrighty y'all, that’s the last of our updates for now. We’ll keep posting stuff as we go along. Can’t wait to see you all soon!!

Love,
CGD

Hi! Thanks for the update. Will there be a specific Facebook page/group set up for finding and organizing Fanime Panels? Or will they still be primarily organized here with the official list posted on FB/Twitter?

I was wondering who was going to take over. Congrats!

Sad about the move to FB, as I don't have an account, but I'm also not planning on hosting gatherings, so hopefully it won't be too much of an issue. Will there will be posts here in the forums that I can either reply to with with plans for a certain gathering, or so I can at least see which gatherings are being held without having to dig through FB and hope I find the posts there? At the very least, will there be a complete list of gatherings posted here, so I can view them?

So, for clarifacation, I will aim to have all info on gatherings both on here and social media's for THIS YEAR. I will make sure one links to the other, so you know where the mothership will be stationed at both areas.
 
At the very least, will there be a complete list of gatherings posted here, so I can view them?
With the new form, I Hope, Hope, that I can make a master list on the Fanime Host Site (as in, not hidden in the forums, like, easy peasy from front page of fanime website) that will either be a mirror or the same as I post here and social medias.
Unfortunately, I cant speak on their behalf, ill beep them to check in here.
I'm sorry I miss typed. I meant Cosplay Gatherings, NOT fanime panels. I must have had panels on the brain. my bad.
I am still asking on that (since its a representation of con outside of here, I do need to ask), again, soon as everything is nailed down for me to report out, I will.

Similar, Same information given to me, just more streamlined, and more excepting of elsewhere postings. Think of it as a 2.0 version of the old format.

Yay! Thanks for the update! I pm'ed you but this update answers all my questions. I'll hopefully see you Jan. 8 - (I'll fill out the staff form just in case as well). Definitely want to help where I can since I got my megaphone and by this Fanime, hopefully have a portable loud speaker as well. (https://www.amazon.com/ION-Audio-Block-Rocker-Bluetooth/dp/B00SNBCBBY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1482280305&sr=8-3&keywords=portable+loud+speaker). I recommend to all cosplay gatherers to purchase or borrow some kind of voice amplifier so as not to lose your voice.

On another note - this Fanime, 2017 - marks the 10th anniversary of TTGL (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan) so I was asked by a few friends to bring this series back as a gathering :)

Who do you think I am to not let this happen?!? Go for it!
The one thing I'm bringing is a portable speaker with a mic and other connectivity that can be rented out for gatherings, but I can only afford 1 personally, so I will definitely push for you all to byo projection.
Also I haven't gotten any pm's since July soooooooo

Oh! I think what I meant to say was... I sent you 2 or 3 EMAILS through the forums.

Not sure if you saw any of what I sent but the first email was just me talking about wanting to help out and doing the gatherings I did before while the last two emails were about my "All Idol Gathering". The last email is very important so if you didn't get it, let me know so I can figure out a different way.

Thanks!

Just a mini update, as I have gotten some pings asking if everything is still going. It still is, I just got a bunch of paperwork, and waiting on others, before I can give another update for you guys proper. That, and 96 hour work weeks are "fun".

Those are still okay, and things shouldn't interact with those spots that's going into the hub. Least that's what I am being told.

Thanks for the update, Imperial. Bummer about losing the Hub space, but hopefully Fanime is planning something super cool for it.

I like the idea of having a photographer-dedicated room (reminds me of the photo set rooms at Anime Expo, though obviously on a smaller scale and not so detailed). The room would also be quite useful if the weather turns out to be as hot as last year's, since photographers would still get decent lighting inside but without the heat. The name of the room is also super cute!

Post by: Angelx624 on February 21, 2017, 12:32:21 AM
Thanks for the update!! Stinks that we can't use the Hub anymore. But that's quite alright, I guess. There's still outside areas.... XD

And having a room for photos is great. ^^ Hopefully it can help cosplayers get some good photos of their cosplays that don't have any shoots scheduled with photographers. :O I might swing by to get some photos of cosplays I don't plan on scheduling shoots for. o.O Which reminds me, I do need to talk to my friends who are photographers that are scheduling shoots. XD

But I'll be here, waiting for the gathering submission form. I have quite a few people interested in an Ouran gathering, which is good, I think. Well, it seems less likely to be a flop than my Fruba gathering last year.... :(

Still wondering if the person who took over the Final Fantasy gathering last year wants to host again this year........ and if I should be in charge of the forums thread again......... ;_;

Hello Everyone,

Year 2 of me being the head of this department is nice. I got more of a grasp as to what my boss did from previous years, I got some policy changes for this next year that is critical for all the organizers to know (lets just say I had a headache with this previous year in some of the planning, most of it was my bad in comms, this policy change will make things clear for all.), and im finally getting back into con planning mode with a job in hand. I am announcing an announcement for the start of the year, 1/1/2017 as for all of my policy plans to be reveiled. gathering organizers, just know your going to be poking in here more often to maintain your gathering. and the hangout will be greater than ever!

Till the first, This is the madman from the reach,

Imperial

YELLOWEVERYBODYTHISISPURGE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B3yh4SmI1A) ,

Funny done, yay. Anywho, Update time, and quite a bit of news.

1. I have intituted a set of policies in regards to cosplay gatherings in order to maintain order between cosplayers, and establish rules. Its mostly for my sanity, but there for yours as well. You can read about it HERE (http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,20888.0.html)

2. The big Fanime staff meeting is Sunday, January 8th. If you ever wanted to join Cosplay Gatherings staff, or wanted to meet the madman in charge of the department, you can do that at the meeting, place to be determined(its always one of the hotels of Fanime, so, can't go wrong there), but time is 99% of the time 2:30pm. At this meeting you get to learn alot of the con, and how much fun you can have in staffing it. if you want to say "SKREW THE MEETING I HAVE INTERNETZ", you can apply to a department anywhere here (https://apps.fanime.com/2017/staffapply/)

3. Photos. We have had a problem with photos this year in getting them done in a timely matter. What I can do is point you to some of our photographers we had last year and allow you to get at the photos they each did until i can edit them all into a place proper. Here are some of their works (X) (https://www.facebook.com/OnionknightincPhotography/?pnref=lhc) (x) (https://www.facebook.com/MobiusPhotographyOfficial/?fref=ts) X (https://scontent.fsnc1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/13310489_10154205911977090_6824951996232464844_n.jpg?oh=5ef980e5d46209d8afd7e5be619a7380&oe=58AE7587)

And as soon as I get a decent group done of photos, I will post them and point you as to where they are.

Thats all she wrote for this round. I hope to see you all at the meeting if you wish, but until next time, this is the madman from the Reach,

Imperial

---------------------------------------------------------------

2/20

So, I do owe this area an update.

 I myself appolgize that I don't have the form ready yet. I am waiting on my IT guy(It has to be done inhouse, so I cant take others work on google forms due to "lack of professionalism"), but he does have a good chunk of it done, just a matter of adding some things to the form. The moment he sets it live is the moment I will post here and update you on this.

Photos. The department that is responsible for posting said pictures has not finished last year's. I keep asking the chain as to updates, and yet to hear a solid date for them to be posted. Something that I myself may be doing is getting an outfit to do the watermarking so we can post them in a more timely matter. The person in charge knows this, and the editor in-house knows this. the voices are heard by me and the higher ups, and I just am trying to make things work out.

Gathering spots. So, Bad news, we (the department, not the con) are losing G4, the Raiser stages in the Hub. I don't know if I can say what will be there in its place yet, as I think the higher ups plan on announcing that at a later date, I will confirm and edit this accordingly. That said, I am being denied at putting a gathering space on the ground floor, so I currently do not have a replacement for it. Organizers should plan accordingly, let alone everyone else who used that space to sit down and cool off (There is always the Cosplay hangout, come drop by and check it out.)

New Room: We as a department gained a new room. We shall call this room for this year "Fantasic Cosplays, and Where to Find them." What this room will be used for is for photographers (not ours, but the folks that often set up outside) as a photography area, where pros can set up with backdrops and lights, the whole shebang in a controlled room. We plan to have the area used as a means to allow other photographers to do shoots inside with all means needed. More on this soon.

I think that's all I want to announce now. Thanks!

That is good.  Thanks for the information.

Excited to see what the hub space will be used for! I'm sure it'll be something good.

Also excited for the photo room. Any chance of getting AX-style backdrops or even just con-provided props to use?

Ahem, I do remember requesting Monday for the Ouran gathering. :3

If it can't be Monday, I guess that's fine. xD;;

Being new here, I'm unfamiliar with the designations G(2,3,7, etc..) for the areas of the convention space and referencing the fanimecon map hasn't helped. Is there a graphic/explanation available that can help me orient myself? Thank you, I appreciate any help.

Here is a link to how Imperial defines the locations: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,20460.msg488257.html#msg488257
But keep in mind that G4 (The Hub) is not being used for cosplay gatherings this year.

There is also a Facebook album from last year that has pictures of the locations: https://www.facebook.com/pg/FanimeConCosplayGatherings/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1363024117047904

Hope these help! :)

I submitted my form a while back and heard now update (pro wrestling gathering), did I submit missing information or is it just taking a bit longer to process? Let me know if there's anything to fix.

Hey! Any updates on the idea of having cosplay gathering organizers getting their time volunteering to count towards hours for badge reimbursement? I know I've brought up the idea before just wondering if anything has become of it...

As of this year, I've already taken a step back from volunteering for certain gatherings just because I was literally in charge of too many (5 gatherings = 5+ or more hours of volunteering that weekend) If at least two hours per gathering can go towards a badge reimbursement, I would be so happy. It would make my volunteering for things worth it and it would encourage other volunteers to not only host more gatherings but also volunteer in other needed departments...

it sounds great, and the question got deflected when I asked last. I will ask again at the next meeting, since panels have a similar system.

I'm not sure if I'm gonna be hosting any gatherings this year. :( Might host a Day 0 Kingdom Hearts thing at the least, but other than that I'm not sure. ;_;

I was going to but then my cosplay plans changed. ><" So we shall see.

I'll try and get the Free gathering submitted tonight. No one's had any input on day and time, so I'll just have to go with what I think is best. ;u;

Can we please get a finalized list of the cosplay gatherings or can someone direct me to where it is available? The most recent gathering list is from March in the forums so an update for May would be appreciated. Thank you!  :)

Ah, no need to apologize.  From an outside perspective (of a gathering host), everything has looked really smooth this year for Cosplay Gatherings.

Also if people are looking for a gatherings list, it's on the website now - https://www.fanime.com/cosplay-gatherings-listing/

Pretty cool pocket guide style breakdown.
