Are you a cosplayer that wants to have their picture taken with other characters from your series of choice, or maybe a fan that wants pictures of your favorite characters? Make sure to keep an eye out for our Cosplay Photoshoots!

These are scheduled photoshoots for cosplayers of a particular theme or series. During these times attendees will show up en masse and photo ops will be organized by an attendee volunteer taking on the role of a Shoot Captain. These events are for fans to come together and allow other attendees/photographers to get pictures of amazing cosplays of characters from some of their favorite series.
