I'll paste in some stuff later, but there's not much notes, most of the original content is photography. Largely, my notes are a list of character names and visual descriptions, or business cards from some of the more established cosplayers.

I talked to The Katherinator ahead of the convention to find out her schedule, and we talked casually but on the record at the event; I wasn't taking notes at the time, partly because I was cohorting her (acting as guard) for about 10 minutes, while her boyfriend tracked their booked photographer down. My priority was keeping her safe, at the time. -- Zanimum (talk) 18:51, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

How about using a gallery? (At least it helps desktop view)Edit

@Zanimum: you can use <gallery> to deal with multiple images. There is an example from the archives where I had used it. You can view is source for help. But it makes no difference in mobile site.

I talked with Katherinator, but her Facebook page does have a bit of info. The forearm bit is because I don't want to estimate a size, probably 50-70 cm? Her demeanour is purely bumping into her in the corridors.

Identification for the costumes and cosplayers is based on just my pop culture knowledge, or seeing posts from the cosplayers scattered through Instagram or -- Zanimum (talk) 22:45, 7 September 2016 (UTC) Zanimum (talk) 22:45, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Review of revision 4246849 [Passed]Edit

Thanks for your time and effort reviewing, @Pi zero:, many thanks! All pictures are by me, I didn't think that tag would be needed... I can add them tomorrow on my desktop, but is there a central option, a one-and-done everything is from one source? -- Zanimum (talk)
@Zanimum: There's no conventional shortcut; we do credit all the images on this sort of thing (example). Fortunately it's a straightforward, though slightly tedious, copy-and-paste operation. --Pi zero (talk) 23:34, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
