Booth Info

Ideally there will be at least 2-3 people (1 at table, 1-2 at photo ops) for each shift if possible. If you sign up for a shift remember to show up on time for it. Don't leave your fellow members covering for you.

Changing Area:
There will be a cosplay changing area for the guest cosplay groups and individuals. It will be room 2208. This room will be for various cosplay groups, so be respectful of the other groups sharing the space. It appears there will be a security guard posted, and you will need to give the guard a password to get into the room. If you need to utilize the changing area, ask for the password the weekend of and do not give it away to anyone not in our group.

From the organizers: (emphasis added)
You can leave your gear box in the room at your own risk. Please take up as little space as possible so others can also leave their bags or boxes in there as well. This is a room set aside for you, not your family and friends. Just you and those we are inviting. Please respect these rules.
