The deadline to apply is Friday, June 3, limited convention signs May be allowed pending availability

PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO

Lights, camera, action! Sort of. As fun as convention photos and the random attendee photobombs are – we know that sometimes, you want something a little cleaner to remember the five hours you spent body painting the morning before you came into our event. With this in mind, we will have a basic studio setup available in the cosplay lounge – with a solid backdrop and some softbox lights to help you capture a picture that does your work justice.
