2020 Old School (Pre-2001) Cosplay Gathering
« on: December 03, 2019, 07:56:18 PM »

Greetings old school cosplayers!  Last year's Old School Gathering was a blast as always, thank you all for your amazing attendance, awesome cosplay, and continued representation of the fandoms that created anime conventions!  Of course I'm back to host yet again!  Continuing the tradition of the gathering that got me into cosplay, I announce the...

Fanime 2020 Old School (Pre-2001) Cosplay Gathering!


Come celebrate the rich history of Japanese entertainment culture!

This is a hugely open gathering for those of you / us who cosplay as characters from the previous century.  Essentially if your cosplay character appears in Anime, Manga, Video Games or Live Action that began PRIOR to 2001, then this is the gathering for you!  Although I like to have a decidedly Japanese lean to this gathering, it is not completely exclusive.

NOTE: Until FanimeCon gets closer, all location information is TO BE ANNOUNCED.

Day : Friday, May 22nd (Day 1).
Time : TBA (Generally 6PM - 7PM).
Meeting Place (MP) : TBA (Generally Same as Location)
Location (L) : TBA (Generally Gatherings G3, Downstairs Tiered Platform)

This will be our fifth consecutive year hosting! We will be at the same location as last year - turn right from the main Convention Center entrance, and head down the stairs to the video rooms on the lower level.  We will be on the downstairs wooden tiered platforms between the stairs and the escalators.

Gatherings G3 is the wooden tiered platform area along the stairs that lead down to the video rooms on the lower level.  This will be our third year at this location, with the familiarity allowing for good crowd management.


Cosplayers : If you would like, please post who your cosplay character is, what title it is from and what year you are representing!  As this gathering is a total wildcard mix of different characters, series, studios, and genres - spanning time rather than properties - a definitive list is otherwise not provided.  Part of the fun of the OSCG is seeing just who shows up.


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.


Photography Order : If there is any specific setup or shot you would like, just let me know!  This gathering is to celebrate all of us as cosplayers who keep the vintage fire alive.

I am always up for future ideas to add to the list!  A good portion of the photo order is built upon suggestions from previous years.  I may be trimming the list a bit this year to get the order cycled faster.

This is an excellent gathering to psyche you up for the convention weekend.  If you're an old school cosplayer, stop by and join us!  Feel free to pop in for a moment to say hi, see some incredible cosplay, pose for some pictures, and continue to prove that just because it's old doesn't mean it isn't awesome!


Thank you so very much.  Let's have another great turnout and continue this wonderful Fanime tradition!

So, I'm working on two UC Gundam cosplays in the works to compliment my partner's Bright cosplay. Looking forward to this!

Housing over the horizon!  This is the first FanimeCon since I've started cosplaying where we don't have any new cosplay lined up.  There's stuff we're working on but don't plan on having it ready to go for Fanime 2020.  Present plan for the gathering is to bring back our Patlabor captains cosplay, since we didn't wear them at all in 2019 - surprisingly!

I should be there as Satsuki from My Neighbor Totoro! :)

Woohoo! Still a long way off but I hope your cosplay and scheduling plans come together smoothly.  Thank you for attending every year!

Awesome! I love seeing Gundam characters at the gathering!!

Yup, though I've had the cosplay done since last August. And you're welcome! ^^ Hopefully this time I won't be late.

Depending on what I can put together, I could show up this year as Ichiro Ogami from Sakura Wars. If not, then I'll return as Shinji Ikari from NGE.

There is a possibility I might be bringing Sheeta instead, but the blue dress instead of the other outfit.

But will know for sure closer to the con. ^^ (If I bring Sheeta, I'll likely bring Satsuki to AX)

Tokyo mew mew began putting out copies of its manga in 2001, would that still be included in this gathering? It was being written in 2000. I’m thinking not because it didnt end until 2003, but i thought i would check just in case :)
