I'm glad they're going back to the woodlands, but since it's too long of a drive for me, I'll have to pass next year :\

I am so excited that it's back at The Woodlands. That place is perfect. A free trolley/taxi to take you to the mall and back to the hotel, movies across the street and a riverwalk. Such a nice place. I'm making the journey there.:toothy:

I'm really excited about the grand return to The Woodlands. I really enjoyed that location. Looking forward to AM 2012!

Thank God it's at the Woodlands. I didn't get a chance to go last time it was there but everyone tells me it was MUCH better than this past year's location downtown.

Uh.... I really wanted to go to AM, but it's the same weekend as Sakuracon... Sakuracon's closer to me so I'm just going to have to skip AM this year...

Do they offer one day passes because I could not see any on their website? I really want to go next year, but I think one day will be all I do with a hectic semester.

I can't wait, AM will be my first convention running a panel, and it's literally the closest con to home- I live 15 minutes north. YAY no hotels!

benihime
10-25-2011, 01:22 PM
i went to AM last year, and besides the cosplay contest, nothing was really run well, but I think that it was a lot to do with the hotel change and such so i'm excited it's moving back to the woodlands.

@merides - ahhh lucky! i have to drive 8 hours :(

I was wondering the same thing. It seems like they have been down for quite some time and I need to start looking for some crash space. lol

Does anyone know if they're going to be having 1 day passes? I'm only going to be attending for Saturday, and don't want to have to pay $40 for one day @_@ I checked on their website and didn't see anything ... maybe I just missed it?

Don't hold me to it, but I THINK it was like $20 Fri, $25-30 Sat and like $15 Sun. I don't know where the prices were, it might have been in an email or something, lol!

Yuna ~ Ok, thanks ^^ I'll keep an eye out on their website and such ... if I need to, I guess I could always call Planet Zero, lol. If I find anything out, I'll post it on here for anyone else who's curious =3

No prob! I checked my messages on FB but I think I asked in a text or on AM's FB page.

I may or may not be able to go this year, depending on what happens with this job I'm going for. But if I'm able to go this year, the cosplays I'm doing are in my signature below

Randomness ... but I just realized that AM is 2 months away ... that's a HUGE relief to me, cuz for some reason I was thinking it was only 1 >_> I just had a moment of bliss XD

I'd agree with this if I didn't receive the wrong fabric today. So if AM wants to take it's time, that's fine with me. XD

DX oh no! That really sucks =/

Have you ever noticed though ... that when you're still working on your costume, the convention will creep up on you, but when you're done with it, it takes it's sweet time getting here? XD

I've been done with my costume for almost a month now, and it seems like I finished it over 3 months ago, lol.

Yes! XD It always seems to speed up when you don't want it to, but takes forever when you're ready to go. lol

Wait...so I would have to buy a 3 day pass if I only wanted to go one day???

The info got a little kafunkled due to miscommunication. They're only going to be selling 1 day passes the day of at the convention. So if you're going Friday, you can only purchase the Friday-only pass that day, and so on. :3 Hope that helps!!

Sorry, but I have another question. Where can we find out more about the cosplay contest? I read through the page on the convention website, but I still have questions.

03-21-2012, 11:57 PM
What kind of questions?

I am sorry for the late reply! I didn't know someone had posted. My questions are as follows:

1) Is there a deadline of when you can sign up to compete?
2) Do you just print the reference picture and bring it with you or do you need to put it on a cd?
3) Lastly, Is it alright if I had to leave suddenly after I walked on? My ride home might be wanting to leave the convention early and I don't want to upset them by making them wait on my account. It's possible that I might not compete at all because of that fact.

It's my first time competing in such a big event and I am nervous about what to expect or what is expected of me.
