This Gathering Includes:
Any version/canon of FMA that you want to cosplay!

Day: Sunday, May 28th (confirmed!)
Time: 12:00PM (confirmed!)
Location (L): G5 (between the con center and the Hilton – I'll post a map soon!)

Drop me a line here or on Facebook (see below) if you're planning to attend!  I'll be keeping both this post and the FB event up-to-date (I know we had a small snafu with a double-listing last year that confused some people – sorry! ;__;).

I think we were pretty close to the usual 30-40 people last year, with some coming and going, which is fantastic. I'm hoping that excitement about the upcoming movie will bring some people in, too!

Photo Order:
FMA generously offers us an assortment of different character groupings, and our audience has always been magnificent about requests. I am going to try to bring a list for backup this year, though!

Link to Facebook event:
I've marked it tentatively for Sunday at 12 PM, which is the "traditional" time for us. Confirmed for the same day and time as always! :D

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.

1/8/2017: Preemptive?  Me?  Never.  Drop me a line here or on Facebook if you have any questions!  I'll update this space with any news.  Since I'm supposed to update periodically... it'll probably be bad FMA jokes.  Don't follow this thread unless you are prepared for that. XD
4/2/2017: We are on the official list for Sunday at 12 PM, in G5 (by the Hilton) – I'll make a map soon to help everybody find the new spot! :)


Bad FMA joke #1:

It's actually a great FMA joke.  And I'm not just saying that because this excellent little bit of AMV crack was inspired by a macro I made in 2012.


Bad FMA joke #2:

If Winry puts a letter in the post about cars, is that also automail?

.........I'll see myself out.


Bad FMA joke #3:

So when healing alchemists do something reckless, do you figure they should "Marcoh YOLO"?


Bad FMA joke #4:

Alternative title for the opening arc: "Dude, Where's My Scar?"


No bad joke today (I'm sure you're all devastated) – just a piece of fanart that deserves more love, because it's cool as HECK!



No jokes OR April fool's pranks here – just confirmed date, time, and location, now included above! 8)


Hey, guys!  I am... about ninety percent sure this is where G5 is supposed to be. XD  I'll double-check that I'm thinking of the right spot while I'm at SVCC next weekend and let you guys no for sure!



Hi, guys!

I made a post on the Facebook event including an updated map and a couple quick pictures of the G5 area:

It is, in fact, where I thought it was. XD And if you don't have a Facebook account/can't access that page – here's the new map on its own! http://i.imgur.com/y3UMuuQ.png


Hi, kids... looks like we're at T-minus OH MY GOD WHAT. XD

Here's the deal:

If you hang around until 12:45, I will give you a pair of shutter shades (while supplies last – I think I have 30 or so, and priority will go to cosplayers!).

Also, for anyone who's interested – I'm planning to try to drag a couple of people across the street to take a couple more pictures with some of the scenery we can get near the Discovery Museum... and there's a chance of a carpooling adventure to even more exciting locales after that.  If you want to get in on that, or even just get a couple nice portrait shots of your cosplay, stick around after 1!  8)
