Hello again Cosplayers, Cosplay Designers, Performers, and Photographers!

We are back to help officially schedule your meet-up as a part of the convention. Our goal is to help organize and run meet-ups as to create a more seamless, fun experience for all in attendance.

We will be booking cosplay groups between three locations: the Gazebo, Balcony Right, and the Fountain. Space for performance groups to meet-up and perform will once again be located in the Cherry Blossom Ballroom.

Applications will be reviewed on a first come first, first serve basis.

All cosplay photoshoots are open to photography from general attendees as well as convention photographers.

The final schedule will be published with the convention schedule. We will email all the accepted organizers with their time slot as soon as the schedule is finalized.
