Yeah, so the fountains we all knew and enjoyed are now huge planter plot.

Thoughts?

my first thought, is do we now call it the "previously known as the water fountain" meet up for cosplayers?

It should be called "the garden in front of the convention center".

This is probably just for while they do construction, I'm surprised no one knew that this was going to happen

That's a sad, ugly garden. =( Poor murdered fountains. Poor garden for being so ugly.

It's all about saving water, electricity, and money spent on maintenance.  I've seen this done before  (hell, even Disneyland turned the fountains at the Tommorowland entrance into planters). Unfortunately, the end result usually isn't visually aesthetic.  : (

I guess no more "walking on water"?

I agree that its rather ugly. Hopefully, it matures pretty so that it won't be (such) an eyesore in the cosplay pics. >.>;
Its too bad... there were more animes/manga that involved water than such tiny plants/gardens. I can only think of a character from Hetalia that might benefit.

Maybe fanime can start a "Rent a Back-drop" side-business for group gatherings (that want something other than said garden.) Or maybe cosplayers will start bringing their own back-drop.

As someone who owns several backdrops it's not exactly so easy to set them up for each gathering, there's also the thing that generally most back drops size wise will only fit a couple people at a time which doesn't work for most gatherings since they are rather large. If you'd want a back drop you have better chances seeing if a private shoot photographer has one they're willing to bring and use for you.

I think we should do a Viking funeral instead. Just keep a look out for the fire marshal.

...well really, that would have worked out better when we still had a body of water...

I guess that idea wasn't exactly practical then... -.-; Thanks for clearing that up.
It isn't that I want one... more like I was tossing out a random idea that crossed my mind. >.>;

No worries, I would recommend if groups aren't going to like having that farmville-like plot of dirt behind them they should change the locations to somewhere like the park and such since it's right across the street :) Can just meet up in front of the center then move there together, I've seen some do it in the past and it works out very well.
