Hi fellow ALA-ers!

The gathering sites info for ALA 2018 is now available! I have updated the gathering schedule with the new gathering map.

Here's the gathering schedule for ALA 2018:

[URL="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dX2lqqOhRPZaKLOoWq-3emXDYh06ocMO_ePXkfTiWRw/edit?usp=sharing"]ALA 2018 Cosplay Gathering Schedule[/URL] (Updated 1/25/2018, 1:00 PM)

If you would like to host a gathering, you can either post your request here at cosplay.com (if you are registered), OR at the official ALA cosplay gathering event page [URL="https://www.facebook.com/events/139874420069029/"]HERE[/URL]. You can also direct message me on Facebook at [URL="https://www.facebook.com/sickleweed.ginhiji/"]Sickleweed AX[/URL].

Each site is assigned in blocks of 20 or 40 minutes slots. This does not mean you have to end your gathering when your time is up, only that you would have to move aside for the next gathering to meet up.

Since the gathering sites info were only just released, I will now start to contact each host based on the order they submitted their request to ask them to choose their gathering site. If you don't hear from me even after a week or two, don't worry; I have to give the other hosts time to respond to me so delays will be inevitable. But eventually, you will hear from me so PLEASE CHECK YOUR INBOXES FROM TIME TO TIME!! Either here if that is the only contact info you have provided, or at your facebook page (Check under "message requests" if necessary).

You can submit your gathering request in the following order:

Gathering Name
Day
Site
Start Time
Facebook link (can be provided at a later time, don't forget to open it to the public)


IF YOU ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY REGISTERING IN THIS FORUM TO POST A REQUEST, YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT MY FACEBOOK PAGE, [URL="https://www.facebook.com/sickleweed.ginhiji"]SICKLEWEED AX[/URL]. Also, please provide an active means of contact (for example, a facebook link or email, you can PM me with that info if you want to keep it private).

Hope that helps!

I just realized ALA 14 is going to be 4 days, so I'll get back to you with a full list of days and gatherings when I figure it all out.

Wait, Anime Los Angeles is now four days? Wow, this convention is growing quite quickly.

Okay. So I've definitley decided on doing Star Wars all three days, due to the high demand at ALA 13. So here's links to each of my 3 events for Star Wars. I'll be updating, soon, with my Lightsaber gatherings as well.

Hello Sickleweed!

I'd like to request a spot for the Hetalia gathering(a) at ALA 2018! I'm not sure what day yet or if there will be two because that depends on if ALA 2018 will be actually four days or not this year. ^^.

Here is the page link. :D

Merci for your time!:angel:
