The page for Cosplay panels & workshops is up on the AUSA site. So if you want to do a cosplay related workshop or panel, let me know! The deadline to sign-up is coming up! Panels requiring any type of tech support (projectors,audio, cables,etc) need to be submitted by October 12. Panels requiring logistical support (easels, easel boards, paper, pens, etc.) need to be submitted by October 19. Panels not requiring any support need to be submitted by October 26.
www.animeusa.org/cospanels.php or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just e-mail me directly at AUSA_Tiamat@yahoo.com or even PM on the AUSA forum. VERY IMPORTANT: If you e-mail me, PLEASE either lower your security or add my e-mail address to your "safe" list. I need to be able to contact you!
We have several panels already signed up and I've already started working on the schedule. Most of the time slots available fall on Fridays and Sunday. (The Masquerade and other cosplay related events tend to take up most of Saturday. So there aren't many time slots then.) Again, please keep in mind this is my first year in charge of something like this and I will try to do my best at scheduling everything. And don't worry if you do not get an immediate response. I am not online 24 hours a day. I will respond as soon as I can.
Some of the confirmed Panels/Workshops include:
Introduction to Basic Embroidery and Beading Techniques
Elitism in Cosplay
Cospaly Commissions: Consumer Eye View
Thrift Store Cosplay
Cosplay on a budget
This is a tentative list and is subject to change.
If you want to do a panel or workshop you don't see on the list please get in touch with me.
