Yah, just wondering if anyone here was going. It seems like a really small convention, because I havn't seen too many people talking about it or any sites with reports or pics or anything. But the events gave me the impression that it was a big con. O well. So, any takers?

that's the same weekend as Anime USA. Otherwise i would look into it. small cons are fun. Hence why Anime USA was booked, well that and all of my friends are going as well.

I might be there. My cousin lives pretty close over there so she might take me there. ^.^ So I'm crossing my fingers really hard.

Hmm never heard of it ::goes to look::
Eh, no can do, I'm not even going to ask about that one...I'm already working on getting my dad to fly with me out to California for the GLSEN national conference (not anime related, but still something fun to do) and I know there's no way I could get anyone to take me out to NJ the following weekend...nor could I get time off from work again on such short notice...

::dies:: I know like 3-4 of the guests (well 2 I'm on friendly terms with where I can walk up to them and just start talking, the others will speak with me briefly if I remind them that we've spoken before) Drats...darn working and darn my lack of a car...

oye, i don't think anyone's going. at this rate, i'm probably not either. right in the middle of school... hour and a half drive without a licence yet, over protective mother still acts like i'm 13. yeah, doesn't look bright. :: tear :: :blubber:

hehe.

Dood, I'm cutting class that day.

Oshi
09-05-2002, 11:42 PM
*sweatdrop* -_-; I dunno if I can afford to... Calculus a 9-9:50, Chemistry at 11-11:50, then Engineering Lab, which only meets on Fridays, 12-1:20
Not to mention how pissed off my parents would be if I cut class to go to a con...

Elfy; Come to NJ, you know you wanna meet me... er... us... yeah. :thumbsup:
Meh, it's not even the good part of NJ. South Jersey is the place to be... beautiful farmlands, a wonderful shore... I love that drive down to the beach... it's so nice and green... North Jersey is all industrial and junky O.o;;

Thank you for pointing that out for me!!! I have tentative plans already and figured most of the stuff out, only thing left to do is to gather up a few friends and go. hopefully I can gather atleast 3 people.

Actually, animenext.com isn't the same site. The AnimeNEXT convention site is animenext.org. animenext.com is some Team Anime Next thing that hasn't updated their site.

Speask of the devil who do u think was the person who convinced her to go as Rinoa (well actually I was the person who consistly annoyed her about it, someone else planted the idea in her head) And i assume the halloween photo shot would be one hallowen.

you can take a greyhound bus to the NYC Port Authority, and from there, transfer to the #129 NJ transit bus to Secaucus... (its only 10-20 minutes away by bus, I know cause Im from NJ & take these buses all the time). NJ transit is no more than $3 each way, so its not much of a hassle... well, good luck if youre still going :)

Indeed, but I'm afraid it's not gonna be anywhere as offensive as FFu2 was supposed to be (the orginal verison abused Baaf's 2k1 award winning skit DragonMoonz, Nintendo, Tidus and a few other things) But hey, at least this one's got a hammer wielding blonde and shameless fan service.

hey everyone... im sorrie to say I didnt get to make it to Animenext on saturday... I know I said I was going, and I apologize to all my new cosplay friends that i said I would see there... *pouts*... see, I was up late making new extensions for my lulu hair, cause the original ones got destroyed in the rain after AXNY, and I was up so late that I started getting ready instead of sleeping, since it takes me three hours to get into the costume [so many pieces!!], makeup, hair, etc... then after I was all ready I accidentally fell asleep, and being at my boyfriend's house in brooklyn, i wouldnt have made it there on time anyway...
Im so sad... but hey, is anyone going to Yuricon in Newark, NJ next June?
Sorry again

~Danni

ps, to those who went, how was it?
