Fan Photo Shoots

The Georgia World Congress Center is an exciting venue and opportunity to expand MomoCon into a fantastic new forever home!  It boasts over 5600 parking spots, three enormous buildings that comprise the 3rd largest convention center in the US, and a host of nearby hotels as well as Centennial Olympic Park across the street!  This venue has not held a lot of fan conventions in the past 20 years, so many of our regional attendees are not as familiar with the surroundings.  Listed is a map of the downtown area around the venue and several areas that might be good for your meetup and photoshoot needs at the event, all are within an easy walk or are immediately adjacent to the venue.

SIGNUPS AVAILABLE JAN 2020

If you submit before April 15th, your shoot will be listed in the program book and app!

COSPLAY SETS

Due to overwhelming demand for indoor photo areas and the great success our friends at the 501st had with their great set pieces at MomoCon 2017, we were happy to bring the expansion of Cosplay Sets for MomoCon 2018!  The sets will continue in 2020 with many upgrades and updates and some new sets!

In addition to some great setups from the 501st raising money for some excellent charities and their Make a Wish endowment fund, MomoCon is happy to provide some additional options for photos, including a Moon Palace set with distant castle and pillars (akin to Sailor Moon) and a retro-style Fighting Stage (akin to 16 bit fighting game backgrounds)!

Small group reservations can be made through the Photo Shoot Signups (above in January), or stop by during the con!

HALL A/B

If you walk straight across the street after exiting from Red Parking Deck, you will enter the area between Hall A and B.  This view is from inside.  Notice the glass-tile fountain, it continues down three floors.

OUTDOOR AREAS

Great Photo Opportunities

As you immediately exit the Red Parking Deck, this large stairwell is immediately behind you when facing the GWCC, good for larger group shots and not as far away as the large stairs outside of Hall C.

Just above the Red Parking Deck is an open park area with views of the GWCC and Georgia Dome. Statue doing hardcore ballet parkour just above the Red Parking Deck in the park area.

CENTENNIAL OLYMPIC PARK

The park has some interesting statues and architecture, including some views of other parts of the surrounding Atlanta skyline and buildings. The Skyview AtlantaTurner Building, and the area near the Music Stage has some great spots with city backgrounds.

The Music Stage itself is a permanent fixture, and photos may be taken while posing on it (at your own risk).  Be aware that the stage roof is leaky, however, and will catch rain if it has recently rained in the area.

We regularly hold Cosplayers on Ice in the location in the wintertime, you can see some examples of shots in and around the park in some of the galleries on our Flickr.
