2016 San Diego Comic-Con Cosplay Meetups

Cosplay meetups are a lot of fun for cosplayers, photographers, and fans alike. It’s a great opportunity to get an awesome group shot or just a few fun pairings. Below are a few of the biggest cosplay meetup shoots scheduled for Comic-Con 2016, but first we’ll review a few basic tips for first-timers to these meetups.

Cosplayers, simply arrive on time and follow the organizer’s instructions on how to group up and pose.

Photographers and fans, be respectful of other photographers while shooting. Once you’ve taken your shot, step out of the way to drop to your knees to allow photogs behind you to get a clear view.

Large groups can take over an hour to finish by the time they run through all the permutations of the group shots, but it’s fine to leave early if you need to. (Just don’t walk in front of anyone’s shot on your way out!)
