Change of plans, due to dragging in someone else!  Instead of Nyotalia!Soviet!Belarus, I'll be an OC nation -  Argentina, accompanied by a Colombia.
2014 Plans: Sakura Shinguji (Sakura Wars), Battle Royale!Sakaki (Azumanga Battle Royale crossover), and IJN Kongou (Kantai Collection) for sure.  Others still being debated.

Cool! I think OC Nations are just really neat!! <3 <3

I think it might be good to ask her....uhm. Is anyone who is going to Kumoricon and cosplaying Hetalia doing any of the characters 2P versions? (Either Nyotalia+Axis or Fanmade versions?) Because, if anyone is (or wanting to or thinking about it) you should tell me! ;u; Because I'm doing a 2P Nyotalia, and apparently two panels I am a part of will also be doing a secondary one which is 2P. Annnddddd, I'm also hoping to do a 2P skit (which is kinda cute) and I really need more people. ;w;''

Yay, OC love!  Actually it's my second OC cosplay, having done North Korea in the past.  Now working on possibly getting a cardboard cutout of the Falklands as a prop for Argentina.

So after getting a look at Fanime and who all has signed up, we're only going to hold a single shoot as it's hard to justify two with the amount of people we'll expect to show up this year.

Tentatively scheduled for 1pm, if you all don't mind voting, we'll keep the poll up and will probably decide on the day a week or so before con itself. c:

No problem, I can see how my phrasing is vague.
We're only expecting a little. I know different areas do factor into who chooses what to cosplay, but Hetalia seemed to barely scrape up enough cosplayers at Fanime, so I'm not expecting the same turnout as the last two Kumoris. >:

Well, at the Hetalia photoshoots I ran at Sakuracon there was a huuuuuge turnout. A lot more than I had expected (which was a handful).
I still think it's a good idea to hold two photoshoots though. I can personally run around the convention letting /any/ hetalia cosplayers I see know about it.
I did that at Sakuracon for the photoshoots and the hetalia panels actually. xD;

Mmm right. I didn't really check on the turnout as Sakura, as it always falls on dates that makes it hard for others to go with me, and I'm a big fat chicken if there's no way for me to know anyone before going. ;;{While I remember, Miria, are you still willing to entertain me and go to Yaoicon?}

But it is a valid point. I'm just not sure how much people'd like being organized by someone not cosplaying from Hetalia, because I'm pretty likely to not stay in APH all that much during the weekend, save for a shoot.
I'd have to ask Miria, but if two shoots seems to stay the most popular choice, we could cover one and have other people catch the other???

Ah, I see..And it's okay. xD That's how I feel about conventions as well, and that's why I didn't go to a convention in TX because I didn't know anyone going (that well), and it was also too close to christmas. ;;
Well, I'm always willing to help out in any way if you need it, and I'm sure people shouldn't mind being organized by someone not in Hetalia cosplay...Seems kinda silly if they got super worked up about it.

You mean like the 18+ World Meeting that went on last year? If so no there is no 18+ panel but there are two World Meetings happening Day 1 and Day 2, both days with different topics and in the evening but slightly different times.

So will there be only one photoshoot, or will there be two?

Hallo!  ♥  I'm very late this year, but I'll be Belgium again - if my procrastination comes back to bite me in the bustle pad, I'll just bring maid-Belgium from last year; if it doesn't, I'll be what's listed in my signature.  (Hopefully it doesn't.  orz)

See you then!

Okay, I'm really sorry for ignoring this, but it's been one of those years and it just keeps getting worse.

Anyway, the 'official' shoot will be Saturday at noon in front of the clocktower to move elsewhere, and another will be held Sunday if anyone's willing to pick it up, otherwise it could just be a meet.
And anyone else that needed to be added has been so.

Okay, apparently someone went behind our backs and changed the shoot time to 12:00 at the gazebo.

Who did this? People are leaving the fandom because of this mess.

Shi and I know how to organise a shoot. We have done this before. Our shoots have gone smoothly in the past. Whoever did this could not control the shoot. This was an awful experience for many, many people and due to the fact that apparently there were rape jokes a plenty, it could have triggered some people.

More importantly, someone deliberately went behind our backs to do this because they wanted to hijack the shoot for their own.

Stand up and identify yourself, please.

^No, it was earlier because our shoot was supposed to be at noon

But congrats whoever did! I'm done; you won. I don't love this fandom as much as I did four years ago and I'm plain tired of being undermined or ending up in arguments that shouldn't have to be argued over.
I have costumes from Hetalia still planned, but I'll be wearing them elsewhere the fandom is less caustic and I don't have to worry about watching my every step in case someone decides that they want to yank my standing out from underneath me.

Hey! If you're looking at this thread because you wanted to find out who was responsible for the disasters this year's shoots turned out to be, you're looking in the wrong place! I'm sorry but our shoot was hijacked and when we arrived to run it at the actual time, we were notified by an outside friend that it had been moved to earlier in the day and elsewhere in the park.

So for the person/people who hijacked it, not cool! And please read the stuff below because they pretty much covered everything you didn't do or enforce, which the lack of did indeed drive people away from cosplaying Hetalia at any future cons in the area!


Basic Etiquette Refresher
  - Rape is never funny, so refrain from making jokes about it
  - Respect Other's Personal Space
  - No one is required to do anything they do not feel comfortable doing. Ignore anyone who says otherwise
  - Encourage other cosplayers! If you see someone shying off toward the edges, and can gently re-introduce them, please do so.

 Re: Flags:
  - Do Not Deface Them (As that is someone's national symbol and it will offend people of that nation/decent)
  - Do Not Let Them Touch The Ground (Yes, some countries are more lenient. No, you are not there, so it does still apply)
  - Please Do Not Use Them As Blankets (See above) Or Capes
  - Huge Flags Are Not Necessary (If you feel that you need a flag to identify you, small ones work just as well, and are less likely to offend people)
  - Just show the flag respect; dead nation, your nation, or otherwise, it's a basic courtesy to those who have/will/are living there


↓ READ THIS ↓
There is a WWII Memorial Mural between the two hotels, and as this fandom already doesn't have the most stellar reputation when it comes to simple etiquette, I'm formally requesting that no one takes photos at/around/or anywhere near the memorial. Such behavior is in poor taste, and neither your personal reputations, the Hetalia fandom, or even KumoriCon needs the bad press such behavior would bring.
In short, just use proper manners and show the memorial the respect such places deserve.

OK I think there was a mix up here with the photoshoots....
I had no clue you guys were planning a photo shoot here, Im not even in this thread so I didnt even think to look here...
I did NOT try and steal your photoshoots from you, I had made my on plans for a photoshoots on the official photoshot thread  On january 30. 2012. and Finalized the photoshoots on june 27.
Your photoshoot plans were settled in August 28 so there was no way I could of stolen your guys photo shoot.
So I hope this clears up anything... I cant stress it enough when I say there was a mistake between all of this..
It all started with the knee.

Impromptu photoshoot plans happen all the time. We (my group and a bunch of others people we met at con) ended up planning a shoot in all of two hours on the last day, and got so many people. If that can happen with a shoot that isn't preplanned, having more than one shoot for a series at a single con that's PLANNED is also possible, and it doesn't always have to be the same people running them.  Maybe someone put together another photoshoot completely separate from yours, but they actually told the staff about it, and it ended up being put in the "official" schedule at the front desk. Miscommunication happens, but it doesn't necessarily mean that whoever is responsible for that photoshoot was actively trying to undermine anyone else.

I know that for me, personally, I don't normally attend large 'official' photoshoots for my fandoms because they tend to be alot of sitting around waiting for your character to be called, and then you're up there for five seconds to be photographed and then it's more sitting around for HOURS (in the hetalia fandom especially) while every other character is called. possibly in the hot sun, in a hot cosplay, on uncomfortable ground. So I tend to put together/attend smaller, less official-like side photoshoots where there are less pairing options, sure, but there's also less of the sitting around and more of the having fun.

Is it possible that a side shoot like that ended up 'supplanting' your official shoot by accident? YES.
Can you absolutely guarantee that the people running it were doing it out of spite or because they 'wanted to take your place'? NO.

Personally, all I can say is that maybe you can try again next year, and this time try and make sure that the staff at infodesk with the printed list KNOW that they are two separate photoshoots for the same series, run by two different groups of people?

I didn't know about any of this, since I was unable to attend any hetalia photoshoot (except a random one on day 3) due to other cosplays and taking longer than expected to get out of cosplays. Though I did hear some bad things, I do think that it's just some people put a photoshoot together and people just clumped with them and went. I have to say, for the past 3/4 years of cosplaying Hetalia at conventions..this year was the least enjoyable this year. I mainly blame it on only being able to be in Hetalia cosplay really late and only for panels/the ball and having other cosplays take up all of my time when not expected (as well as the fact that my contacts ripped).

I mean, I can't really say much on the matter since I was unable to be present at any Hetalia photoshoot. The Hetalia photoshoots at Sakuracon though ran smoothly (except for the fact I didn't like that about 8 people would repeat what I said even when I told them not to do that and that I could repeat myself if need be) so it makes me sad to hear things apparently didn't go well at Kumoricon?

All I can say is this; Hetalia cosplays/cosplayers for kumoricon this year seemed to have a hard time, and I really hope it doesn't make people leave Hetalia again. Because there's already been enough of that and it makes me really sad that a few things or a few people made things bad. The fandom as a whole isn't bad, just like any fandom. Though the worst parts of the fandom stick out the most, especially with our type of fandom. But there's still great things about hetalia, and a lot of wonderful things have come from the hetalia fandom.

I just hope things will be better next year, because I don't want to see an even greater decrease in the hetalia cosplay fandom, especially when it's good fans of hetalia (which most usually are). I know for a fact if I can help out next year, I'd help enforce the proper rules, because it seems a lot of people need a reminder. Same goes if I help run the Hetalia photoshoot(s) at Sakuracon, I will enforce your (Shi and Miria) rules. I will also make sure people know these rules at a Hetalia PJ Panel that I'm a part of at Akicon.
