    Default Improvements for cosplay events?

    Hey peeps, Let's talk about how cosplay event can be better on both welfare for cosplayers and spread of cosplay culture o0

    Let's start the ball rolling with my suggestion for changeable backdrops for cosplayers and public to take pictures. imagine, naruto taking a photo with you and the town of konoha as the background o0
    nice..

    that idea sounds good.
    as u know, during events, whenever ppl take pix, the background is always ppl walking here and there. havin changeable backdrop enhances the beauty of photos. and it attracts everyone to one particular corner, and not obstructing other walkway.

    or maybe there could be a couch near a board, for cosplayers to sit down and take photos too (cosplayers can use tis to take a rest too..lol). the public residents can also join in , and sit down wif the cosplayers and take photos, or even chat with the cosplayer on their costume and stuff etc. this actually can get the public to interact with the cosplayers ..
    hmm.just my opinion la.

    Maybe for a start have a proper rest corner + bag storage for cosplayers and maybe changing rooms too? Background wise, STGCC's idea of the white and black boards was a good start too. Just that the lights were bad. Would have prefer softer white lights though.

    Add to that more space at indoor events for walking and posing.

    As far as cosplayers are concerned... They should loosen up more, have fun and do more omake shots!

    Why?

    Because it's MANLY.

    I agree, the yellow cast from the lights was terrible. I tuned my WB in camera to adjust to the light, but many other P&S users don't have this function.

    A screen would have been better. You could see the metal support bars of the boards.

    I noticed that the cosplayers items were left haphazardly outside at the impromptu rest area. Very inconvenient and dangerous as anyone can pop in and steal stuff.

    the idea was there but needs refinement i guess. Unless someone is going to volunteer to watch the area the whole day or something. Thats why I think they also did photos there so at least its not so boring just looking after the stuff.

    but yeah a proper place with proper security would be good. But this one must depend on the event people liaos.

    For Public Events like STGCC, GCA, Game Xpo, WCG, License2Play etc, if really want proper storage space for your bags, then write in to the organizer to maybe provide one.

    But remember to keep in mind that Cosplay is just a minor part of the event and space is money to the organizer so your recommendation might not be easily fulfil by them.
    Certain groups/company can help to push for such facillities but the final decision always goes to the main organizer.

    Hmm..I do agree on your point as the event organizers will want to maximize the rental space during the event and also maximize the profits but as cosplayers, we are also "stakeholders" which help pull in people for the event, so the organisers should understand the cosplayers' interests in charge.

    Good point, softer lighting will be a good point definitely.
    I like the idea of proper rest corner especially when cosplayers spend money on costumes not to sit on the floor right?

    Then write in to the organizer. The more people write in, the more they'll realize the importance of providing for us our own little space.

    I know I wrote in to the STGCC organizer requesting for us to have 2 Coscons and even tho' it's just 1 voice, it did bring the point to their attention. Am gonna write in again to Thank them and remind them to maintain the format for Coscon in order to prove the rumors for next year's STGCC-Coscon false.
