I'm excited for the good times. A group of my friends usually get some rooms and we drink & play games, good times. I'm also excited for the celebrities i'm hoping to meet. Especially Elvira, I've wanted to meet her for years *_*

I'm so excited I started to dance a bit and keep headbanging to this one song o_O. Cons are so much fun, but so stresssssful. The night before AN I had a panic attack while on the phone T___T.

There isn't too much to do at CN Anime though o_o.

Every now and then, I get a giggle fit from thinking about it. Then I get quizzical expressions from the parentals. ^^' I have a hotel room with friends this year! So I get to be there all three days!
So many animes I want to check out will be out now. Like Kodocha and DearS. I have the entirety of the mangas for Kodocha, and I have up to Volume 3 of DearS. I am scared that I may get dissapointed by the animes tho, cause after reading the mangas, I have my own idea on what the voices will sound like, and the story may be different. Luckily, they'll be playing them at CNA in the video rooms, so maybe I can catch those before I buy.

*runs arround screaming* SEVEN MORE DAYS HURRAY!! *co-worker stare at her*

Does that answer your question :P

Kinsako
08-19-2005, 02:14 PM
Well, strangely enough, I'm not as excited as I normally am for cons. It might be because we're having problems booking our hotel, and normally we have everything booked months before hand (we had our plane tickets for anime north in January this year) I dunno. I'm looking forward to it, but fixing my costume, as well as trying to figure out my boyfriends, and messing with the hotel, has kinda put me in a blah mood for this con. I'm just about to freak out now, becasue I ordered a shirt and pair of pants on ebay for my costume a week and a half ago, and they have yet to arrive. :eeek:

*LMFAO* yeah okay o_O;

Anyways, yeah Elvira is going to be there, for those of you who might dare to look beyond the Anime section. there's an impressive line up for the Festival of Fear, Comic Book Con, Sci-Fi and Gaming sections.

EXACTLY!

: sheesh : Come on folks... open up a little. Talk to the folks in artist alley... a TON of great work can be found there. Check out some of the industry panels or the sketching duels... experience...

P.S. - I am disappointed with the fact that Elvira isn't doing much at the con... very disappointing.

I understand some people do snub most other mediums, but not all. Even so, its just that maybe we also have looked into other mediums but didn't much care for them.
Understand that I'm not attacking your opinion at all, Its just I took minor offense to the fact you MAY think all anime fans watch ONLY anime.

Sorry bout that, its just how I felt about the last few comments on the matter. I'm sure you don't really believe that all otakus are alike, seeing as you yourselves are fans of the anime medium. Its just my two cents.

Unfortunately, I feel the same as Kinsako; I have been working double shifts for the past week, and since I have not had time to sleep let alone work on my costume, I'm more stressed than excited. As much as I want to make my new cosplay, I think I'm going to have to just rewear my AN one. Nothing wrong with it, of course, but I had my heart set on the new one :waaaah:

BotMan

I can't wait, personally. I've got some friends crashing at my place, we're going in and out each day, I'm looking forward to meeting new people, taking a look at the costumes made and everything. I've been saving up for this con too, so I'm really looking forward to all aspects of it!! I'm really also hoping to go try to meet some of the VAs, since at all other cons I've gone to, I've NEVER had (or rather, made) the time to go do that!

Justincredible- I get what you're saying here; when I did the AA at AN, I liked it when people took the time to talk to me ^^" I mean, keeps things interesting. Then again, I like meeting new people ^^" I will admit, I can get a little nervous, but oh well! *laughz* I am really looking forward to this though, should be awesome.

CN is a "meh" for me, not as excited as I would be if it were AN, but more excited then I would be if there weren't one.

The plus of CN for me is getting to see all my cosplay friends in one place!! And that I'm excited about!!

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I didn't mean to offend in any way, I know there is a lot to do at CNA, but my biggest hobbies include Animes and Horror, and for me, although there is lots to do, I meant in regards to AN. At AN, my schedule was jam packed, but I seem to have hours in between events at CNA for free time for taking pictures and visiting other events. I meant specifically in the Anime section, I did not see too many events I was excited about. Your post seemed a little harsh though in general. You assumed that Anime lovers are *only* anime lovers, and if they are, then what is wrong with that? It's their own hobbies, and if they don't have interests in those other particular, then that's just fine for them. Just my opinion.

Oh yea, I'm excited. I'm not wearing any costumes but it'll be pretty cool to hang out with my friends again. =D

I can't stop thinking about it. I got my Reno cosplay all ready except for the hair, it won't be red unfortunatly.

I bought bus tickets yesterday! Everything is falling into place now *taps fingers*. >_>

Funny thing tho, I don't feel as excited as I did last week. I'll most likely get giddy when my friend and my sisters boyfriend come on Thursday, cause then we'll all be together and I'll realise "oh jeez, its happening!" Especially Friday, I'm sure I'll be giddy lugging my bags to the bus stop.

Long and far traveling?? I certainly hope you don't live like 2-3 hours away or something. that's not v. long. I'm coming from *dun, dun, dun* SAINT JOHN, NB!

I agree, I think having fun at convention has alot to do with who you're with! :P :bigtu: great point!

Definately. :3 Imagine being at a big convention with people who don't like to talk to people they don't know, hate waiting in line, and never wanan be "hanging around". I personally foudn it fun when me and my friend just sat around and talked sometimes. I loved it when we got to talk to new people, and I loved getting my picture taken. xD So this time I hope CNAnime will be a much better experience for me. ^_^ A nice chance to meet new people :3

I'm excited too!

I also agree about being at cons with negative people or annoying for that matter. I have a few that after they buy everything they want they just want to leave? I mean that's just annoying when I'm trying to have fun.

Anyare
08-23-2005, 08:01 PM
Yeah, exactly. x.x

Perhaps I might make it to your picnic, if were not watching anything. x)

I understand some people do snub most other mediums, but not all. Even so, its just that maybe we also have looked into other mediums but didn't much care for them.

True as it may be in the general sense, I still believe the reason for that is folks judging a sample of a 'medium' and applying that sample to the entire medium. I'm of the idea that anyone can find something in any medium... they just have to give it a chance and keep an open mind.

Understand that I'm not attacking your opinion at all, Its just I took minor offense to the fact you MAY think all anime fans watch ONLY anime.

Sorry bout that, its just how I felt about the last few comments on the matter. I'm sure you don't really believe that all otakus are alike, seeing as you yourselves are fans of the anime medium. Its just my two cents.

Oh no worries. I'm just stating the fact that folks complain about there isn't much to do at 'CN' when many (in all fandoms) never really give all the fascets of the 'expo' a fair shake.

Justincredible- I get what you're saying here; when I did the AA at AN, I liked it when people took the time to talk to me ^^" I mean, keeps things interesting. Then again, I like meeting new people ^^" I will admit, I can get a little nervous, but oh well! *laughz* I am really looking forward to this though, should be awesome.

Indeed. AA is a wonderful place where you can get some really great stuff and meet some really interesting folks ^_^!

Brita_Lee
08-23-2005, 09:36 PM
Wow, I'm glad we cleared that up peacefully. ^-^ It sucks when fights start up from differences of opinion.

I do agree that you can usually find something you like no matter the medium. Man o man, I am really getting excited! I have a bunch of friends coming, we love meeting new people. Hanging out in costume rocks! There are really neat events I wanna try and get into. Hope I don't forget. ;p

Otaking97
08-23-2005, 09:48 PM
Woo for no lame internet arguing! Nothing is worse and more annoying to read.

See you all at CN in only 2 days!!!!!

MaiSheri
08-23-2005, 10:29 PM
heh, I'm getting a lot more excited now after relieving the stresses of making my new costume by just deciding to wear my AN Rabi en Rose! So now all I have are a couple of quick touchups!
Also I found out tonight that my friend and her siblings are going to be going, too, so I'll have even more friends with me!

Yay! I can't wait!!!

08-24-2005, 09:57 AM
I'm glad that everyone's not getting into a tiff about what was previously mentioned ^^ I just wanted to express the fact that just because YOU don't find the stuff to do interesting doesn't mean there ISN'T stuff to do at all ;)
Thankfully that's all cleared up now! I just wanted to put in my last bit since I stirred the shit a bit :)

Only 3 more shifts of work for me! :D

08-24-2005, 09:25 PM
Woo for early airplane flights to CN! I'm getting into the spirit of things now! It's like Christmas. I don't really feel much until a few days before December 25th.

Too bad I'll be only going Saturday and Sunday. I'll probably end up spending a good two hours in line.

08-24-2005, 10:24 PM
After the DISASTER which was my Otakon weekend, I am now *very* excited for this weekend!!!

All my cosplays are done, and all I'm doing is tweaking my Naraku wig... Once that's done, I get to repack my Otakon suitcase into two smaller ones and a duffel bag, then I head off to work, sleep over at my friend's house and bright and early Friday morning (5am) I leave on the bus for CNA!

TribalButterfly

I was extremely excited for this, being of course CNA will be my first con.. but.. theres always a but.. I was informed today that the pants that I had ordered definatly wont be coming in on time. So ya time for all-nighter tweaks (and by tweaks I do mean making the pants. fun fun!) on the costume!! Ita gonna be great!

neko rinchan
08-25-2005, 01:00 AM
Well, good luck with teh pants! ANd, it's better to make them too big than too small... <-- know about that from experience...

I'm all packed an' ready to go... all that's left is packing the skincare stuffs, then i'm (almost) on my way!

...too bad i havta leave Sat night 'cause I have work meetings in Montreal...

My suitcase is packed, my costume is finished, the con tickets and hotel is paid for, and in a few hours we'll be leaving for Toronto (me and my sis somehow convinced my father to drive up to Toronto this weekend from New Brunswick ^^). I made some improvements on my ANBU costume from Anime North and my boyfriend's Zabuza costume (including a new sword). My sis improved her nine-tailed fox costume, and hopefully has her boyfriend's Hayate is almost finished. And, somehow, I've had five hours of sleep (as opposed to the all-nighter I pulled before Anime North). If you see me at the convention (I'll be the ANBU with the long red scarf), be sure to say hi... :thumbsup:

lainey
08-25-2005, 07:10 AM
i'm a bit excited now...and highly stressed!! Costumes are still INCOMPLETE and our hall cosplays seem like a no go since I can barely finish our masq costumes in time.

Might rewear Utada again on Friday...MMMM....

TribalButterfly
08-25-2005, 07:16 AM
I was excited when i woke up this morning n thought... omg....this time tomorrow im going to be getting ready to go over Sumeet's hose n start painting the Scar symbol on his arm.... TOMORROW's CN!!!

OMG IT JUST HIT ME! TOMORROW'S CN!!!!


WOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The only bad thing is that my friend Jono may not be going anymore :lost:
He just got a new job, and they scheduled him for some CRAZY hours over the weekend.
Sucks if he's no longer coming, but personally speaking I'd rather if he didn't.
Don't missunderstand me, i WISH SO HARD that he could be there!!!!!!!!!
But I don't want him to be at CN to the point where I'd want him to risk his new job/getting into a car accident from sheer exhaustion by making him juggle the crazy hours at work and the con!
Luv U hun, n i just want for you to be SAFE!!! :heart:
There's always next year :bigtu:

Enk
08-25-2005, 07:23 AM
u'm starting to feel a LOT of tingling... but this might be just uttr panic and the fact that i'v gottn four hours of sleep he past 4 days. We're leaving at 11.40 tomorrow morning and I am out of commission due to work until 5pm tonight. ungh

I'm glad most of my costumes are rewears (well, 3 are rewears, one is new, and two of the three are improved). =^-^= The excitement hits me sparraticly. Its when I start thinking about the masqeurade skit I might be doing that I start to giggle my little ass off(That happened ALOT when I was trying to fall asleep last night ^^'). I can't imagine how I'll get to sleep tonight, seeing as my con buddies will all be at my place tonight. Whoot!

TribalButterfly
08-25-2005, 07:55 AM

MaiSheri
08-26-2005, 10:01 PM
they have pre-registration set up on one side of the lobby, and regular on the other

TribalButterfly
08-26-2005, 11:23 PM
What i found amazing was that the line for pre reg ticket holders was huge - yet the people just going n paying cash were done in like 5 seconds! Hhaha!
but the line still moves quickly, so it was still good! :)
