Title: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure 2019
Post by: apples4ryuk on November 30, 2018, 12:22:55 AM
'TIS THE YEAR OF THE GOLDEN WIND.... Our mantra? "That's bullshit, but I believe it!" Or we could go the other way, "Every time I close my eyes, I wake up feelin' so hooorny..."

HELLO ALL! It's me again, Nina! I plan on hosting the Jojo Fanime gathering for a second year because no one has expressed interest in doing so otherwise, and I thought I'd get this post up ASAP. I realize I might have to make another forum post when the 2019 updates happen or whatever, but better to organize early anyway!

Name of the gathering: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Fanime 2019
This Gathering Includes: JJBA Parts 1-8, stands, gijinkas, AU designs, anniversary color schemes, OCs, etc. Basically ANY AND EVERYTHING JOJOS!

UPDATES!!! 4/1 The official gathering list has been submitted, although it is still subject to change. I've updated the time and date that we currently hold, but if anything changes I will update here and on the Facebook event! :)

Day: Sunday 5/26/2019
Time: 2:00 PM
Meeting Place (MP):G6
Location (L): G6

Bump, some info has changed on the main post! Still waiting for official submission forms to go live, but will keep updated. Going to share this post on the Facebook page and Instagram so I can hopefully add more people who are cosplaying!

GUESS WHAT! Gathering submissions are live! I've already submitted one for the Jojo gathering, will update every two weeks and when I hear more info. Be sure to check out our Facebook event page (! Cosplayers are choosing via poll which part they are cosplaying from. So far the majority are from Vento Aureo... saw that coming ;P

I saw somebody else mention a giveaway at the end of their gathering. Would anyone be interested in such a thing? I have a few items of Jojo merchandise that I'm okay parting with. Putting a poll up, please vote.

Hello everyone! Bumping for the biweekly check in. I added a few more cosplayers to the list and DID have a poll, but no one is very active here so it flopped. I gauged interest on Instagram and Facebook instead for the giveaway which will be held at the end of the gathering.

Below is the giveaway form - if you are a PARTICIPATING COSPLAYER or PHOTOGRAPHER, you are eligible! Limited to 1 entry per person. Don’t use multiple usernames i.e. double Instagram or twitter accounts. I am checking every entry to ensure each person has a fair chance of winning  :)

Gathering list is official, although it can still change! I updated the main post with our current scheduled time and location, as well as added a few more cosplayers to the list.

GUESS WHAT Y'ALL! We've been approved! Yay! Our time is 2:00 PM on SUNDAY MAY 26 at location G6. I'm updating this here as well as on the Facebook event page, but the official cosplay gathering list won't be solid for a few more days (or even a week? idk) so I... am continuing to post until then? Better safe than sorry :P

Hello everyone! WOW, what a crowd this year. I didn't expect quite so many cosplayers at the gathering but thank you so much to everyone who participated! To those who entered the giveaway but were not present, I'm sorry, your chance to win was forfeited. If I do a giveaway next year it will be better organized and I will have people enter after the gathering instead of beforehand.

Also, our photos are not yet uploaded to the FanimeCon slickpic gallery. I will keep checking and link the album here when they are posted! I've also asked the gatherings coordinator to see if they know when the pictures will be uploaded. Stay tuned! And thank you again to everyone that came to the gathering! ♥
