- The Steven Universe gathering was a little bit of a mess.

- With large gatherings, is there a way for the department to provide those cardboard megaphones for check-out or rent so that everyone in the crowd can hear the announcements?
Yeah, I knew it might be a bit out of the loop for the steven universe gathering, and I overestimated the crowd that would be at the gathering at G9 at the time, so somewhat my fault on puting people at x place at y time. I am writing policies to make this easier for me and everyone to understand the rules for what gatherings are (also in the process of preproduction of making a video as to HOW TO RUN A GATHERING, A PHOTOG AND ORGANIZER PROSPECTIVE.)

as for the megaphones, I was thinking of the plastic ones the schools tend to use, however I would do a checkout system for those at front table. its in my list of things of wants and needs.
I would like to get some feedback from what my department did this year, but first some things I know need fixing:

  • Gatherings in the books all together (this is always in mind, its out of my hands rn)
  • The Moving of Dragon Age gathering (someone went over my head and moved a gathering that could have fit inside just fine)
  • No water in hangout(again, out of my hands, lets just say SJCC is "fun")
  • Lack of supplies in lounge (I had a list rolling around of things you all wanted)
  • Fire emblem gathering and its sprinklers (literally had no clue they were to go on. Facilities will know next year so it hopefully won't happen again.)

But beyond that, What went good, what when bad, etc. Tell me, I do a valve approach to reading this all (I read it all, it doesn't mean I respond to it all.) I will eventually release my letter of con in review. maybe here, meh. I want this department to do more eventually, and if I get it going again, have chopped cosplay again with the hosts we have had in the past do their thing. But again, its only my first year of being the head, so I know I need a lot of growing.

well, not really, cause there already is one announced for this year....
So, this thread will make it easy for people looking for others who ask if someone took their picture and want to link to their portfolios so others can find them easily.

Cosplay Gatherings Department pictures: Coming soon

So, when we look in the books and on the signs at the con, it'll say this gathering is at G10?

it will say G7, and we will point people accordingly for the gathering!

This is good to know - thanks!
I'll try to spread the word on any changes leading up to the gathering, too.
Does this affect anything else I have to do as the organizer?
Nope. I make it easy for you guys cause its all the fun in the world to do my end.

again, my bad. I keep seeing the numbers for people going to this gathering, and it MAY move to G10. It will be an at con decision, and if it happens we will point to where it is. again, my bad. my master list and the one that went to print is the one that is going to be printed throughout(thats not the facebook one, im just trying to transfer info from excel to word is fun and copy paste fails....)
So, update is that its still there, and the gardening boys have no instruction so far to remove it. if anything, there is a small lawn more inward of the park that we can use.
finally reading this one all the way through rather than just the Email's i have gotten. You guys make me cry, in a good way. I want the best for our cosplayers, cause that was what the basis of my department was made for. By Cosplayers, For Cosplayers.
So on my tour out and about to day, i will have pictures and answers as to partial park closures as i think the gardening group is there  today.

G10 is in Cesar Chavez Park by the snake statue (insert obvious joke here, I swear I had nothing to do with that one).

Huehuehuehuehuehue. I got to do a funny.
YAY! THINGS GOT DONE! sorry to scare if I have done so to you guys, I just am in crunch time.
I use G10 snake statue as a landmark, the park as a whole is for the gathering, as landmarks are for the better in my opinon. bare with me, im trying to figure out from the gardeners who would have best knowledge in the matter.
Define requests. if its requesting of shots, then at the gathering. otherwise, you have my attention.

The two staircases in the front entrance of the convention center are often a gathering place for cosplayers, and because of the way they are situated, would those need to be completely closed off or just the parts where one could get up to the second floor? I just don't want cosplayers getting surprised when they see a common gathering area no longer available to be used, whether for just hanging out or actual photoshoots.
This one I can Relatively answer, as I have asked about it several times. So I assume you are talking about G2, and G3. so on the wooden stairs/steps/whatever they is a enterence to the full grander staircases, and that will be blocked off with a blocker. otherwise, it may have a bit more traffic in the area but in general it should work out fine, as they can be used.

EWU and/or rovers head can probably confirm or deny my understanding of what you are asking for.

If you are okay with it, give me the thumbs up and I can try to make it happen. I'm in the midsts of finals right now so I'm all over the place lol
Your not alone on the matter. I will work it out as soon as I can!
Cosplay hangout has neon tape for the tip of the gun, also if you don't mind I can hotglue the inside of the barrel and they SHOULD clear it. so long as its not so realistic that it mirrors the real option we can work it for the better.
G1 is my table, an error that I screwed up on, kinda cant have a gathering there.
