Outside, Weather Pending, Photo Area A & Photo Area B!
The University of Calgary is one of the most beautiful campuses in Canada, perfect for photoshoots. Otafest will be organizing various fandom based photoshoots during the weekend in Photo Area A and Photo Area B – please make sure you check the map and schedule to note when and where these are happening.
Photo shoots by popular series will be organized in 1 hour time blocks at either Photo Area A and Photo Area B. All photographers and cosplayers who would like to take pictures of or be in photos of characters from that series, should meet at that location at the scheduled time. The first 10 minutes will be for gathering cosplayers and photographers. After that, one large group shot will be taken by official Otafest photographers. Then, cosplayers and photographers will organically split off and take pictures as they would like in an ad-hoc matter. This means that the photo shoots may last only 15 mins, or may take the full hour. Each photo area will be cleared periodically to allow the next series’s photo shoot to occur.
PLEASE NOTE: PHOTO SHOOTS ARE WEATHER PENDING ONLY. IF THERE IS POOR WEATHER DURING THE SCHEDULED PHOTO SHOOT, THEN THAT PHOTO SHOOT WILL BE CANCELLED WITH NO OFFICIAL INDOOR REPLACEMENT.
Series/themes for which photo shoots are planned include the following, which is subject to change. Please check the schedule for final details: Steampunk/Gothic Lolita, Mech Series (Macross), Final Fantasy/SquareEnix, Vocaloid, Homestuck, Sword Art Online, My Little Pony, Hetalia, Magical Girl (Madoka/SailorM), Avatar, Assassins Creed, Fire Emblem, Dr. Who/Sherlock, League of Legends, Adventure Time, Nintendo Games, “Other” Series.
