Setting up meetup/photoshoot?

Post by Selestyl » Mon Nov 28, 2016 7:58 pm

Hey all! I wanted to know if anybody had advice for how best to set up a meetup or a group photoshoot. I've never done it, but am considering it for Ace Attorney this year. What are the ins and outs, and is there anything I should know?

Thanks in advance!

I would suggest starting off by getting a thread going in the Cosplay Groups and Gatherings section here and try to coordinate with your fellow cosplayers. From there, you can work out details as to what day/s and time/s you want to try and set up a meet and/or shoot with what location/s. One major thing to keep in mind is that regardless of where you choose to gather, nobody has any actual claim to that spot and everyone needs to do their best to work around other groups if that arises. Closer to the convention, a Master list will be posted as well to help keep everyone informed as to the when and where that you determine.
