On Tumblr phantom-shadow is hosting a Homestuck gathering at the park across the street with the statue. I'm assuming that one is the Guadalupe River Park. If you guys would like we can merge and confirm this gathering into that one? Of course I'm not trying to like 'take over' per se, just merely suggesting and see what you guys think!
going as Fancy!Tier Jane with my sister who is going to be Fancy!Teir feferi, and my friend who will either be Vriska or Gamzee that day.
Also, where exactly is the meetup? The other post on cosplay.com says the grove of trees by the marriot, the old location on that post is right of the convention center. This post says left of the convention center. :?
I am trying to work the location thing out as well, because there have been different locations posted to different websites. The chances of it being directly outside the convention center are slim, because the Kuroshitsuji gathering is scheduled for that area at the same time. There was some vague mention of a grove of trees either by the Hilton or across from Fairmont (I believe I've read both). There ARE parks in both locations (Plaza de Cesar Chavez - the one across from Fairmont, is smaller but it would work and it's one I'm more familiar with). The one across the street to the left of the Hilton (Guadalupe River Park) is larger, but I have never actually gone there, so I don't know what that one's like. I have no idea which of these two places they're planning to host it, though.
And of course I will find the post that she put up so that you guys can all view it~
As for who I will be, I will be DualScar with my Ancestors group for the gathering (:
Oh yes, I actually responded to phantom-shadow's post on Tumblr as well. You're referring to this post? http://scratchman.tumblr.com/post/22307710099/fanime-homestuck-gathering
They are working together with Awkward Cosplay that is also running this gathering, so I'm pretty sure it's the exact same gathering. On the post I linked, they are talking about going to the park across from Hilton. Originally they said the park across from Fairmont, but perhaps it's been officially changed to Guadalupe.
On the Cosplay.com thread for this gathering (also hosted by Awkward Cosplay, linked in that same tumblr post: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=276486
) they say it's at the "Right side of the convention center, down towards the grove of trees." That vague description could mean either of the parks depending on whether you're facing toward or away from the convention. Using the name of the park would greatly help identify it.
Here on the Fanime forums, the information is outdated all together and doesn't reflect that the gathering is moved off of the convention. We need all three sites to say the exact same information, which is understandably harder when 3 different people are posting on each site.
So since they're all posted by the same cosplay group as the one in this thread, I don't think merging is necessary. We just need to have them state which park they plan to gather at (preferably by name so even directionally challenged people like me can find it).
