Our application has been approved! See original post for finalized date, time, and location.

Gathering form has been submitted!

Little bump - as May gets closer, I will be submitting the gathering application soon for consideration. Please reply if you know who you will be cosplaying and you'll be added to the main post :)

UPDATE - sort of!

I saw someone comment about how they never received their photos from Fanime 2019 gatherings, and for a long time the Jojo gathering pics hadn't been posted. Apparently they are now? Unfortunately they're scattered between everything else and Flickr won't let me download them.

Here's the link in case you want to see last year's gathering pics:


Thanks for the updates!!! I’m currently playing the game, forgot how much I fuckin love DMC. I’ll be going as V! But I also host a gathering on Sunday usually between 12-2, if possible could you shoot more for Friday or Saturday?

Quick bump! Please check out the Facebook event page for this gathering.

Hello yet again, fellow Jojos! Nina here, posting ahead of time. Just basic same stuff as last year, but please do reply if you already know your cosplay for the gathering and you'll be added to the cosplayers list.

Hello hello good morn to you all! In addition to hosting next year’s Jojo gathering, I’m also trying to put together a Steel Ball Run minor villains group!

!! UPDATE !!

Still no photos in the Sunday album BUT in the uploads album, at the end, one of the cosplayers added photos from the gathering. Thank you!


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! ♥

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


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.

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  :)


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.

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

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!

bump! Link shared to the Fanime facebook page as well as the event.

bump ✊ still no word on gatherings officially but I'm keeping a lookout! :) Don't forget to check the event page!
