Not directly costume/cosplay related, but passing the word from the Director of Artist's Alley:

Artists Alley registration for MomoCon 2013 will be available on Oct. 17th, 9pm EST via http://www.momocon.com/artists/ through a form. Reservations will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis in 2013.

Available space for artists in 2013 is significantly increased due to excess demand. We will be auditing our application process in 2013 for improvements in 2014.

Artists who are accepted will be able to purchase a 6 foot table with 4 feet behind clearance with two chairs for $100 (this includes 2 weekend memberships).

The Artists Alley will be located in the same location as the Dealers Room, the bottom floor of the Hilton Atlanta. Due to its location, the AA will keep the same hours as the Dealers Room.

Friday - 1pm-7pm
Saturday - 10am-7pm
Sunday - 10am-5pm

The room will be secured overnight. If you have questions, please feel free to email artists@momocon.com at any time.

Bring your best costumes for a free photoshoot on the beach at Tybee Island near Savannah, GA! All ages are welcome to this shoot, held on the north end of the beach (near the Sugar Shack). Looking to show off that Halloween costume early and get some great beach photos? Our MomoCon photographers will be on-hand to capture some great shots!

Coming from Savannah? Take highway 80 to Tybee Island and turn left at 2nd avenue (at the Sugar Shack). We will be right on the beach at this beach entrance. Meter parking is available, bring a few quarters. The address of the event is the Sugar Shack, turn left when you get to it.

Our photographers will capture your best pose and all photos will be available online after the shoot. People not in costume who'd just like to hang out are also welcome!
