Title: Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-5DXAL Gathering 2016

Hello everyone! Last year's YGO cosplay organizer said she isn't planning on heading up this year's, so I decided to step in. Last year was my first time at Fanime, but seeing all of the YGO cosplayers was one of the biggest highlights, and I definitely wanted to have a gathering this year, especially in light of the 20th anniversary movie.

With that said, this is my first time organizing one of these things and I obviously have no idea what I'm doing, so please bear with me, and feel free to leave comments/suggestions! :)

Awesome! Thanks for the vote of confidence haha. I can't wait to see your DMG cosplay. And I hope the Gaia cosplayer from last year can make it out too, so you can have a fellow Monster cosplayer! :)

Aw, thank you! Help would be much appreciated, since I'm pretty much just making things up as I go haha. Luckily, the submission process seems pretty straightforward.

As for when, Friday's definitely out, since I'm assuming some people will still be getting their badges or just arriving in town. (Plus I'm not allowed to take that day off work OTL)

Is there a reason for not doing it on Saturday? It seemed to work all right last year, and I've already confirmed with Imperial that late Saturday would be ok, just waiting for the final approval. :/

Woohoo! This year's YGO Cosplay Gathering has officially been accepted! (Thanks to Imperial for getting the final list published ;D)

I've updated the first post accordingly, but here is the info for those of you who don't want to scroll up. It's basically the same as last year, but an hour later.

Date: Saturday, May 28
Time: 5pm
Meeting Place (MP): G8
Location (L): G8

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to comment here! And also please spread the word! I know the gathering got submitted a bit late and a lot of people will have already made plans, but obviously, the more people show up, the merrier~

Neat, hope you can make it out! I'm sure people will be very excited for the free movie fliers haha. Closest thing we can get to actually watching the movie in the U.S. :)

Sorry the gathering didn't end up being on Sunday, btw. :/ If I get my Reiji wig done in time, I might wear him on Sunday, so maybe we can do an unofficial/informal gathering on that day if people are down for it. If not, there's always next year!

Hope you all had a great Day 1 (and made it through the reg line in one piece)! This is just a friendly reminder that our YGO cosplay gathering will be SATURDAY (i.e. today) at 5pm at G8!

We will probably officially start taking pictures around 5:05, to give everyone time to finish up any panels/events they were at. The goal is to finish in 20-30 minutes, so y'all can have the rest of the hour to enjoy the con~

Starting around 4:45, I will start carrying around a Yu-Gi-Oh! sign that kinda looks like this (colors will vary):

If you see me, feel free to say hi or ask any questions you might have! Word of warning, I may not recognize you if you're a minor character from GX or Zexal (unless you're David Rabb :P ), but I would love to meet all of you regardless. If you also happen to be in line to get an autograph from Masaya Matsukaze (a.k.a. Divine from 5D's) and you see a Carly holding a Death Note, that is probably me, so again, feel free to say hi. :)

Thanks everyone! I already saw some amazing YGO cosplay today, and I'm hoping everyone will be able to join us tomorrow~
