Title: [2013] BIOSHOCK gathering
Post by: Faraday on April 22, 2013, 06:23:35 PM
*Every year I see a bunch of lost Little Sisters and Splicers prowling the premise but could never figure why there wasn't ever a gathering, so I've decided to organize what I'm assuming is the first Bioshock gathering of Fanime. So please come out and to show some love for an amazing franchise!

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

DAY: FRIDAY
TIME: 3:30 PM
LOCATION: G2
, tiered platform on first floor of lobby (https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc1/403359_245637282244414_1499464524_n.jpg)

This gathering is to celebrate the Bioshock franchise by Irrational and 2K Games (the original Bioshock, its sequel, Bioshock 2, and the latest game Bioshock Infinite).

I didn't think there was going to be a gathering for Bioshock so I scrapped my plans for a Big Daddy cosplay. Low and behold, a gathering pops up! Cosplay or not, I'm definitely checking this gathering out, love Bioshock.

Yay! I'll definitely be there in my Little Sister costume this year!

Yay! <3 a Big Daddy would be amazeballs, but everyone's invited to come hang regardless of cosplay :D

Aw, yisss!


Also I'm getting a few suggestions to move the gathering to Friday.
So everyone interested in attending should let me know which day works better for them: Friday or Sunday.
Thank you!

I'm going to be Elizabeth (in her collared outfit) and my boyfriend is going to be a splicer. I don't know if friday is a good time though, idk what time we can check into our hotel. It may be in the late afternoon.
yet another edit: sunday would be better for us :)

The Host changed the gathering from Sunday to Friday as a few of us were not able to do it Sunday. I'm thinking most of us will still be in our costumes for awhile, so hopefully you two can make it.  :)

Updated!

@DareDragoon & cosmia; Yeah, unfortunately I took a poll a few weeks ago and more people were available Friday afternoon versus Sunday.
But I know my friend and I will also be rocking some Bioshock costumes Saturday, we love meeting other fans of the games so if you see us please say hi! :D

Extreme maybe if I can show up as a splicer.

Ok, I have a friend who cosplayed as a splicer last year, and as Jack a few years ago. I don't know if he plans to bring either this year, but I let him know about the gathering!

We now have our official time! This gathering will take place on Friday at 3:30PM, on the tiered platform on first floor of lobby ("G2").
Here's a picture so everyone knows what I'm talking about: https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc1/403359_245637282244414_1499464524_n.jpg

updated the list!

I was at the convention center last weekend for Big Wow! Comicfest, and everything's completely changed or under massive construction. This is definitely going to be an interesting con. :P

How's everyone's costumes going?
I'm still doing last minute touches on mine!

Good to go.

Hopefully the lack of free space doesn't cause any issues with the gathering.
Figure we can use strength in numbers to assert our territory in either case.  :D

Ugh, there's a chance I may miss the gathering, due to being in the pre-reg line. I will definitely be wearing Little Sister the rest of the day though! If I don't make it I hope to run into folks!

Hey guys, thanks for coming out and helping make my first gathering a success! About 25+ people showed up which was more than I was expecting, and I saw tons more Bioshock cosplayers roaming the halls too.
I tried to hold off starting photos as long as I could because I know a few stragglers would show up late and that the registration line was hell. But all in all, considering I have no experience talking in front of groups of people, I'd like to think this went pretty well, lol.

Bummed out that I forgot about the gathering and missed it. Definitely gonna try and create my Big Daddy cosplay for next year though!
