  1. What about those of us that want to come as a photographer but would rather pay so it’s less work like. E.g. I would rather take a casual approach to it and make more of an organic experience for a shoot and model. While adhering to all the policies for photographers already in place.


    • Hi CJ. We appreciate your interest, but if you are interested in attending just as a photographer we encourage you to feel out the application. There isn’t really that much pressure or demand. At this time we don’t have open admission to photographers to keep a good ratio of cosplayers to photographers with out overfilling the halls with cameras. Maybe as the event grows we’ll head that direction! Thanks.


      • Hum ok. We’ll see. Either I’ll submit as photographer or just come with my gf in costume(s). To be honest I’m glad you’ve locked this down a bit. I skip shooting most cons these days as everybody with a camera thinks their a pro.
