Looks like the start of a good schedule for all photoshoots. I suspect that one needs a Google account to access this?
ETA: seems that one doen't need to be logged in to Google to view the spreadsheet.
Since the Show ended a year ago, there will be no fan panels this year. I talked with people at Dragoncon and they said that it would be fine to have an unofficial meetup for a "fan panel" and cosplay shoot after or before. We have a panelist from the armory track and one of the professionals guest showing up as well.
If you are interested we are going to schedule the time and place at night on this event page:
As I said before I am working on a series of vlogs on youtube. Every year I like to do a series of episodes at Dragon Con. I have been promoting my blogs on twitter and facebook. I am also starting to promote them on this communities because it revolves around the above. So here is a link to my latest information on Dragon Con.
I will be at Dragon Con this year as a regular guest working on my blogs by shooting interviews of regular attendees and of main events. I am an amateur and I just started doing my blog work last year at Dragon con and I had loads and loads of fun.
What I would like to do is to show you some links of the stuff that I am working on. If you would like to meet up at the convention to do some blog work with me, please be sure to send me a PM and we will meet.
Please be sure to check these out and subscribe to my youtube channel

I had to cut it down to one this year instead of three, but I am indeed hosting a "Harry Potter" photoshoot. It will be Sunday at 7:30pm in the Sheraton Lobby (will move from there just like last year and in 2010 )
Also, the "Geeks of Primetime Crime" (i.e. live action crime drama- think "Sherlock", "Hannibal", "Law &Order", "CSI", "NCIS", 'Criminal Minds", shows like that- photoshoot) returns, still Saturday and on the 5th floor of the Hilton but at 9:00pm this year so as not to have to deal with the crush of people going to get dinner (as I do suspect that caused some problems the previous years, having it right at 5 when the mad rush for dinner began).
I guess I can also mention the "Wreck-It Ralph" gathering, Sunday at 2:00pm on the Marriott 10th floor. I'm not hosting it but as of right now it hasn't been added to the Cosplay.com list, either.
As a lot of you remember, a few months back I posted about this photography project that I'm going to be starting at D*C this year. The project is still going on, don't have any fear.
I'm getting ready to send everyone so far involved an email with all of the details but I wanted to try and get any last minute Con goers a chance to get involved.
At this point, please only e-mail HeatherMairiPhotography@gmail.com if you're interested in joining and all information must be included:
E-mail address: (I know you're sending it to me, but better safe than sorry.)
Costumes: (and if you know it, what days you'll be going as what.)
BUT WAIT, THERE'S EVEN MORE!
THE PROJECT HAS EVOLVED A BIT! BEFORE EVERYONE STARTS EMAILING, PLEASE CLICK HERE as I have added some more to it. (All of this information will be sent in one e-mail as well).

Part A: For the ladies:
I’ve been to Dragon*Con the last few years, this will be my.. 4th year I think. May be 3rd. I don’t remember. ANYWAY! I love taking pictures of cosplayers, but there’s always so many, I miss a lot. Especially when I do panels, but I don’t know if I want to do any this year, unless something really catches my attention.
However, this year, I want to shift my focus from taking pictures of just really great costumes, to having an actual theme and I want it to be Female Cosplayers of Dragon*Con. I’m sick of all of us getting shit for being female and dressing up as amazing characters and being grilled over and over again about how much we know about said character and being forced to prove ourselves over and over again because of our love.
Being a fan of video games or comics/graphic novels/manga, anime etc. does not mean we have to know every little detail of every little universe. Unfortunately, there are many who dont’ agree with this.
I'm looking for a multitude of costumes and fandoms, but I really want to aim for video game/comic book cosplays. This is the one area, where as a female, we are given the most attitude.
Even if you're not cosplaying as a comic or video game character and you want to be involved, please, get in touch with me. I will not reject anybody! (kids are also welcome)
Which brings me to
Part B of the Objective: For the guys
I would also like to find some guys who will be attending DC13 who don’t give a shit if a female knows every single detail of a character, game, comic, movie etc. etc. but loves the fact that they (the females) are willing to show their love for something, regardless of the ridicule and crap dealt out by those that are too insecure with themselves to open to the idea that females can be gamers - whether table top, card, RPG, first person, or comic nerds.
If anyone is willing to help out with this, please send an email to HeatherMairiPhotography@gmail.com for more details or any questions you might have. I’m still planning this out, but there’s quite a few things I would like to do with this project.
Just a quick note: I've been getting a lot of responses for this project (yay!), so I have to ask if you want to be a part of this, please don't just post in a comment to someone else. I might miss it, and I don't want to do that.
Also, if you've noticed I haven't checked in with someone yet, please keep chatter to a minimum. Once I've checked in with a person, chat to your hearts content. I just want to make sure everyone who says they want to be a part of this, gets checked in.
It's an open group, all are welcome to join. We'll hopefully have some kind of meetup at D*C, but even if not we're trying to get up some makeup discussions (for zombies) and reference photos (for specific TWD characters) and whatnot. Should be a great group! (Seems to be so far, anyway :) ) So if you're planning on doing a costume of a specific TWD character, or even just a zombie, come check it out....or even if you're just interested in the show and are going to D*C, come check it out! :)
Oh, and don't worry about costume/character doubles or anything like that. We're just in this to hopefully get a big group together and take some great pictures and all that jazz :)
(I've tagged this with "photoshoots" as well because it's very very likely that we're going to schedule a TWD photoshoot at D*C...as in, at this point I don't see why we WOULDN'T do so, haha)
Okay, enough jokes. The times and locations are as follows:
- Friday at 5:00 pm in Marquis Tower 2 (Marriott 10th floor if it's closed/we are kicked out)
- Saturday at 1:00 pm on the Hilton 12th floor
- Sunday at 7:00 pm in Sheraton lobby (will be moving from there, hopefully to the pool atrium)
There are Facebook events for these; just click on the corresponding times listed and feel free to join.
Like I said, no plans to use the Suntrust Plaza myself, but I think this is something everyone should know, hence why I asked.
