Cosplay Photoshoot Sign-Ups

The Anime Banzai Convention and/or its staff are not responsible for these groups or the photos. This schedule is simply a way to inform con attendees when/where certain groups are planning on gathering. You will have to get your own group together and provide your own camera/photographer.

Want to meet up with other people cosplaying from the same universe as you, to meet friends and take photos? Well here’s your chance! You can sign up for cosplay photoshoots in one of two ways:

This sign-up is for photoshoot gatherings taking place at the 2017 Anime Banzai Convention. Here’s what you do. First, discuss with your group when and where you’re going to meet. Then, post that information here. I need to know what your group is cosplaying, day, time, and location.

Location Suggestions

  • Outside – Courtyard lawn
  • Outside – stairwell/hill area by west side of building
  • Outside – along the outside of the west side of the building

pictures of locations

Anime Banzai is not responsible for clearing a space for your group – it can get crowded. Please find a spot with few people and be polite and courteous if you need to ask others for more room; or move to a different location. You might want to have a sign so people can see where you are.

Example of What to Post:

  • Group: Fullmetal Alchemist
  • Day: Friday
  • Time: 3:00 pm
  • Location: Courtyard patio
