^___^ I'm going there! My third time at an anime convention too. My friend and I are singing too *hopefully*. XD I'm going as Sakura from Naruto, and perhaps Kouji Minamoto or Izumi/Zoe Orimoto for half a day. I'll be going everyday.

*sigh* as I suspected might happen, I won't be attending Animethon 12. I finally found a job in my field, and can't exactly ask for a week off while I'm still in the 3 month probation period. It would have been great to meet you all, I'm quite bummed out about this! But work is work, and good work is gold.

I hope everyone has a blast, and I expect pictures and con reports!

I wanted to go, and started planning it, but a few things came up that really prevented me from looking into it any further. I hope everyone has a nice time, and maybe I'll go next year. (ALTHOUGH.... I really want to go to AX next year, so maybe not. *_*)

Eleryth
07-23-2005, 08:51 AM
I can't go either, but perhaps in 2006... I don't know when I return from Japan, but if it's late again, in August, I might be able to make it. First one in years.... and 13 IS my lucky number...

Katasha
07-23-2005, 01:55 PM
Eleryth you need too come join us at Animethon soon. Your part of the AA family and its about damn time we meet you. I can't remeber what athon you said you went too before, I'm pretty sure I wasnt attendging yet, but yes, you must come back.

Eleryth
07-23-2005, 08:42 PM
Ah, my first was A-thon 4. ^^ Attended whenever permitted after that. Oselle was with me that first A-thon... good times! We were so YOUNG then...*sigh*

My fave memory (aside from watching Laputa and other anime shows - always loved the programming) is from when I somehow ended up being a volunteer to guard the door for Jin Roh a few years ago and some guy who was several years older than me was talking to me wearing the latest A-thon shirt. I lamented that I wanted a white one or something *not black* (yes it looks good but gets boring after so many years), and he said that there's never been anything but a black one. I looked at him and said, "Um, there HAS been not-black. Animethon 4 had a white shirt, and it's my favorite one." The look on his face was killer. I was only 20 or so at the time, and dressed normally (i.e. no anime tshirt, no costume, nothing of that sort), so I think he was shocked that I had been an anime fan before him. Hahahah. Anyway, I'm done rambling.

I really wanna come back to Animethon, at least once! And make Mark a new Mo-beanie...

Here is my story.
I was sent to Edmonton to visit my family I haven't seen in years, and I was REALLY excited...but it was for 3 WEEKS. 3 weeks without buddies, mah boyfriend, DDR!...etc.
THEN, my friend had the brilliant idea of searching the internet for anime stores to chill at. And he stumbled upon.....ANIMETHON!
AND IT'S DURING THE TIME I'M STAYING HERE!

I THINK I'M GOING TO HAVE A SEIZURE, I"M SO EXCITED!
Now I have a week to whip up a simple cosplay. And I'm SO happy and surprised the enterance fee is cheap.
I've never been to a con alone though...so... here's a reminder... IF YOU SEE A SCARED, SHAKING, LITTLE GIRLY CONGOER, HELP HER OUT! XD
... EDIT: I'm leaving on Saturday and and sunday for a different city! T_T I'm going to try and convince my Nana to either pick me up REALLY late Friday night, or let me stay all Friday night, and pick me up in the morning on Saturday.

Friday is nothing special. :)

For anything on Friday, you need the Tier 3 pass because the events are at the hotel, and it *was* 20$ for pre-reg, not anymore. I think there still might be some available for purchase at the door? WHO KNOWS. But I guess that sucks you'll miss out on anything good~

...The karaoke is at the hotel? .... [p0swj-495yu8w4-y.... >>;
But it's 27 dollars... for ONE DAY... ;-;
I could mope around and meet people then, but it might not be as fun. Ah, I wish I could go visit my Uncle on a DIFFERENT day x_x;;;; Like, THIS weekend. T_T
But, it's pre register BEFORE July 30th, and it's the 29th today. I could still prereg for $20 ^^;;;;

☆Skull Rabbit☆
07-29-2005, 05:12 AM

Maybe you can convince your nana to pick you up late sat. or sunday? :D just a couple days difference ~~

Oh lord..only one week left...still so much shit too get dne..but it will be so damn worth it too see mark in his costume.

07-29-2005, 04:30 PM
w00tage!
I get to go all of Friday, and from 12ish onward on Sunday. ^________^
And I just got all the fabric for my costume, I'm going to be a gothic lolita Kitty with white ears and a white tail. I'm going to start sewing ASAP! ^^
We even stopped at the dollar store and got me a genuine black colalr with studs on it, and I'm adding a bell <3

Safe travels, PikminLink and family!

I'm still terribly disappointed that I won't be there - I hope everything goes well for the first year as a 'hotel' con, and that it's even bigger and better next year! I WILL make it back to Edmonton next summer. Will Will Will!

Why didn't I notice this thread before!?
I'm so excited for Animethon!! Only 4 days until we leave!!
You can still buy Tier 3 passes though they're like $27 annnd there's less than 40 left.
I'm staying at the hotel with a bunch of my friends though I don't get to go to the dance T__T
For saturday I'll be wearing my new Dizzy costume from Guilty Gear Isuka, it's very shiny and please look out for my wings T_T I'm afraid of people bashing into them. On sunday I'll have my Akatsuki Temari out for most of the day I think.

Woo I can't wait to get pictures of everyone <33

Yeah, I still don't think it's a very good idea but who's going to stop them right? I'll be happy with a Tier 2

Iris13
08-02-2005, 11:24 AM
Meh... I kinda need a tier 3, because I can't go on Saturday, only Friday and Sunday. So if I couldn't go to the events on Friday, sine they are in the hotel... I'ld be disapointed ^^;;;

Katasha
08-02-2005, 02:10 PM
I don't even know what my Tier is. I don't pay attention. Only a few more days. I seem to be picking up alot of people who are going alone and don't have anyone too hang with. If you need people too hang with and don't mind being in a REALLY big group come find us at the con.OO and my friedn will be giving people free Tarot card readings at the con. He's been studying in BC for the past few months..hes kinda scary accuret about it all..

Cant wait for Animethon though. Got my Tier 3 pass then I find out I have to work on Friday...great...Ill be around saturday and Sunday atleast with one of my friends.

Decided to throw together a cosplay at the last minute, Nothin great but you know. I'm thinkin a quick Father Maxwell from Hellsing, Maggie Mui from R.O.D TV or Jill from Resident Evil as I got all that kinda stuff sittin downstairs.

08-05-2005, 02:34 PM
It's today <3
And I'm all in costume, and leaving soon! OH JOY =^_____^=
Allthough, after I register, I don't know how long I'll be there. After all, apparantly all the Tier 3 passes are gone, and if I can't get into the evennnts... *shrug* I'm sure alot of people will be around, it won't be that bad.

Tali
08-07-2005, 09:16 PM

I, personally, had more fun than last year even if I only wore my costume for 3 hours on Saturday and not many people got to take my picture D=
If anybody saw me, I was the Zelos with the LONG wig. Check my photo gallery, it's in there.

Ah, you were the other Zelos? Awesome XD I was the short-haired one (only because my hair didn't grow fast enough.. lol. Mine wasn't a wig XD)

Mew, anyway, I'm new here, but I'll post some pictures later anyway. I got quite a few cosplay pictures, not just of my team, so.. yay!

Your costume was really good! Did you wear it to another convention before, or did you just prepare for this one really early?

Skull hush up and do as your told*winks* You had fun and you know it! I had an amazing time..F*#&$ MAD I didnt finish my Hinoto in time but thats ok, It was still a great time. ANd atleast one panel was good, my wigs one sucked..damnit thoes people needed too get outa the room and let me set up! I was so disorganrised because fo that. the Improve rocked, and of corse hanging out with everyone was bitching.

Awsome! I've been looking forward to what consplayers.com has to show for my, and some of the others' costumes! ^_^

Thanks for the update PikminLink! I was under the impression that we'd be waiting until after AnimeEvolution (and you all went home) for us to see those shots..

PikminLink
08-12-2005, 01:51 PM
they were originally going to be up after anime evolution, since im still here in canada, but i just recently got internet connection, so im trying to get these up sooner.

for everyone..you can use as many photos of yourself as you want, but the watermark may not be removed.

Your costume was really good! Did you wear it to another convention before, or did you just prepare for this one really early?

I wore it to Halloween, but the pants ripped so I had to remake those. And the teal straps in between the buttons broke off, making my original clay-made buttons disappear without a trace. And I found this all out a day before Animethon, so I scrambled. I also lost my original ExSphere. It's a good thing my sister had face-paint. xD; I wish I had time/money to make the shoes though ;-;
