Hey all! I'm hoping to put together an unofficial Lore Olympus at fanime this year to meet up, get some food and drinks at the Signia hotel bar area, and have time for some photo ops in a great classy hotel setting! Here's a link to the Facebook event I set up:

Day held: Friday
Time of day: TBA based on availability!
Place: Signia hotel Aji Bar in the lobby (we can meet up in the park beforehand though!)

Since this is an unofficial gathering, the specific day is already set! Apologies in advance, I can't change the specific day since Friday is the only day I am available to host a Lore Olympus event since I have other cosplay commitments on Saturday and Sunday! (But the specific time of day is flexible at the moment!) And if anyone is interested in hosting a separate official LO event or even a general Webtoons event, by all means go ahead, I'd love to try and attend if it works out to be on Friday as well!

As the Signia hotel bar serves alcohol, I ask that you are 21+ if you plan on drinking. It is an all-ages dining spot since they have non alcoholic options, so I cannot ask those under 21 not to come full out, but please be responsible and especially do not buy drinks for others if you do not know their age! Something else to note is to please seal body paint and/or wear arm socks; be respectful of hotel staff!

This is an unofficial and unstructured gathering, but that doesn't mean we can't take fun pictures together! There will definitely be time for group photos, or to find spots in the hotel that serve as wonderful backdrops for character portraits, ship pics, group pics, and more! We won't have any official photographers on hand so make sure to bring your phones or your own personal camera if you have one!

I'll update here and in the facebook event as time goes on, but please post in either place if you're interested in this event so I can gauge attendance or if you have any questions! You can also find me on instagram @persephonaae , thank you! <3
Ideas and Suggestions / Silver Island Suggestions
Last post by zakueins - March 11, 2024, 05:04:02 PM
It may be too late to have any real alterations for this year (the Doubletree? AGAIN?!?), but for 2025, I'd like to see the following fixes...

1)Stick Silver Island at the Hyatt or the Fairmont. It's closer and easier to get to, which deals with the whole shuttle-bus problem. I'd prefer that it was at the Convention Center, but I can understand there are issues.
2)Start the Silver Island Dealer's Room earlier, perhaps at 6pm.
3)Four programming tracks-two yaoi, one yuri, one everything else. "X"-rated material after 7 pm, unrated/NC-17 after 10 pm.
4)Have more non-yaoi vendors in the Dealer's Room, especially artists and manga.
5)Do some adult panels, like "how rope bondage really works," "how to be adult without being creepy in your stories," "how male and female sexuality and sex really works," or "where is the line in story writing between 'negotiated consent' and 'forced consent' and 'rape'"?

I'm glad that Silver Island is back, I'm just afraid that it'll be turned into a niche event that will die very quickly.
So excited for this gathering again, it was so wonderful meeting everyone last year! I'll be bringing an updated version of my Ranni costume from last year and my partner is hoping to get a Lucatiel cosplay together!

Feel free to reach out if you wanna join in or have other input. I'll add you to the list of cosplayers if you like otherwise I'm hoping to see everyone again at the gathering

I look forward to this again. I just hope I show up on time for the opening.
Official or unofficial gathering, I'll still be there! I also support the Cosplay Gatherings Department staff as well as everyone else who has resigned.
Hi everyone!  Things may be a little different this year due to massive changes within official Cosplay Gatherings at Fanime.  We completely, totally, 100% support and stand by the Cosplay Gatherings Department staff - they are awesome people who have done so much to support ALL cosplayers.

If cosplay gatherings happen officially at Fanime this year, we will follow the process as it is presented and register for an official spot.  If cosplay gatherings are not offered in an official capacity this year, then we will host the gathering as an UNOFFICIAL event.  Either way, we intend to run the gathering as we always have, to support the massive retro cosplay fandom, and give us all an event to show how awesome old school cosplay is.

I'm actually gearing up to move again right now (same as this time last year), but I should be easy to reach here or on Facebook if you have any questions or concerns.

And yes... I'm planning on updating the gathering banner.  I still really like the one we've used for years (I mean it spans Tetsuwan Atom to Dai-Guard... a robotic child superhero - to a group of office workers piloting a super robot) but it could use an update favoring more 80's and 90's stuff.
