So folks... there's like 5 months until SakuraCon 2014! That means time to begin working on your con prep, etc. As for what our group will be doing at the con, well... unfortunately not doing a panel. There's too many members not attending the con this year who'd usually assist with a panel (and one is even on a long hiatus due to severely personal reasons). It's sad, but oh well. However, we will of course have the Yu-Gi-Oh photoshoot still happen. Despite SakuraCon deleting their message board and making it difficult to organize a ton of photoshoots, ours is unaffected since we now have a decent photographer who's willing to help out whenever we need him (my friend who's the head of "Ninja Photography"). Also because there's plenty of places most folks don't think of using for a photoshoot that make for pretty (and nicely private) photo backdrops. All we have to do is let other Yu-Gi-Oh cosplayers we run into know of what day and time the photoshoot will take place. Heck, maybe even write it down on slips of paper to hand out. Still need to figure out the time for it, but the day's already been set to be the 2nd day of the con (since we'd get more newcomers to join us and give 1 day before to hunt down people to attend).Other big news:
Does anyone have a table for Artists' Alley they'd like to share? ~slifertheskydragon
is desperately searching for someone who'd let her share their table with them, since she had the misfortune of being unable to snag one for herself. Please post here if you're interested or message her directly if you can. Do help a fellow member out!
If anyone has any suggestions of something else we can do together at the con, speak up! Not sure we could pull off a skit with such little time to conceptualize and prepare, unless one of you guys has a brilliant idea that could work. I'd certainly be happy to lend my VA/acting and creative skillz to such a venture if it's doable...
