Still, I did discover one lively group of Gothamite Steampunk Cosplayers downstairs waiting in line at the Neither Noir booth, who were willing to camp it up for me while waiting for their shot before the best professional cosplay photographers in Dallas.
I should note that this was one thing about All-Con this year that I think much improved on previous years. This year, Neither Noir was allowed to set up shop in the lower lobby, near the information booth on the ground floor. I think this helped to eliminate traffic problems on the second floor, where they had previously been set up on a corner before the grand ballroom most of the big events are held in. In times past, it was not uncommon to have complete bottlenecks every hour, on the hour, as events let out only to run into a wall of cosplayers eagerly waiting to have their pictures done. This year, I don't recall seeing or hearing about any similar problems in the lobby.
That is, I think, the best summation of All-Con 2014. It was an improvement on previous years and it was a good time all around. I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store!
