Is anyone going to this one-day event (as far as I know) on May 24th? I'll definitely be back this year :D

*points to the other thread* Yes. ^_^; I missed out last year, but I'm planning on it now.

I think it's fine that is one day. That way you can hang out there all day, then sleep the next day! lol! It's fun like that because it's local. I loved Recca last year, was so much fun - nice, cozy little con. It's like a family/friends get together and food was great too. :-)

Whats this convention like? Is it worth going to?

Aya Mizu
03-06-2003, 03:25 AM
Oh dear :( It looks like Recca Con will be postponed until further notice. I just got word that the community college that hosts the con will be shut down for the summer due to the massive state budget cuts.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
03-06-2003, 02:46 PM
yeah, I know. I was plannig to go and now, it sucks that ain't happening. well, at least I'll be looking forward to the cherry blossom festival and ani-jam(if I can make it)

videogirlc
03-06-2003, 04:47 PM
That sucks. Looks like my first convention of the year will be Fanime now.

Michi
03-06-2003, 06:03 PM
The summer? Is ReccaCon nonexistent or just not gonna be til like, September now? *falls over* Anyone know their plans?

Eurobeat King
03-06-2003, 06:47 PM
Sux that Reccacon has to be postponed/cancelled, and I was looking forward to it. Although, the con seemed to have gone from good to bad in terms of happening again. It was supposed to happen in June, and then moved up to May, and then from 2 days down to 1 day, and now.. not going to happen.. :( Now since I have no plans that weekend, Animazement doesn't sound too bad, since Admin & Aeris will be going there.. hehe Nahhh, I'll just rest up for the weekend and finish up on costume work for A-kon the following weekend. :skidude2:

Aya Mizu
03-06-2003, 07:49 PM
I'm told that they're now shooting for November. I suppose this is a good opportunity to prepare for A-Kon for myself as well. I was hoping to make it up there for Bay-Con the same weekend but I might not be going up to NorCal at all now. :-/

Michi
03-06-2003, 08:20 PM
I'm definately using the time to prepare for A-kon. No ReccaCon means not having to worry about the costume I was doing for it. ^_^;

BayCon is apparently really good. ^^ I dunno if I'm going yet, but it's an idea. Even better one now. XD;

videogirlc
03-07-2003, 04:49 AM
Whats Bay Con?

ZiggyB
03-07-2003, 07:23 AM
BayCon is a Sci Fi/Fantasy con in San Jose

http://www.baycon.org/

There's a bit of anime there, cosplay and anime screenings, but you'll also see storm troopers, star trek, x-men, etc. It's a blast.

I have some pictures from last year:

November? That's really too bad - I was looking forward to it so much =_= Won't be going to BayCon either. Oh well.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
03-07-2003, 02:56 PM
http://www.reccacon.com is the website.
did any of you guys pre-reg?
I guess for me, the 1st con of the season will be ani-jam I guess..then the SF Cherry Blossom Festival and Fanime.

Michi
03-07-2003, 05:18 PM
Fanime is the only con you just mentioned. :P Ani-Jam and CBF don't count as cons. XP

videogirlc
03-07-2003, 05:27 PM
Thanks ZiggyB might go check it out.

Ziggy: Nice pics from Baycon 2002. Even though it sounds like fun, and it's close, I prolly won't go since I'll need to rest up and prep for A-kon. And if I went, it would only be for Saturday and Sunday since I work on Friday & Monday.. That's still, pretty interesting to have a Bay Area sci-fi con for 4 days, almost like AX and SDCC. Although, the pre-reg. and regular-reg. price seems pretty steep, $65-75? :thumbsup: I would do it if I were going for all 4 days, but since I'm already requesting time-off for A-cen and A-kon, it wouldn't work.. Take nice pics so that I can see how this year's goes, Zig. ;)

ZiggyB
03-09-2003, 01:38 AM
Well yah it is a bit expensive, but some of the panels are *really* cool. They had one where they were showing you how to make latex masks like klingon head peices. There was also one from Hi-Impact about how to do vacume foam armor for storm troopers and oracs from LotR. Last year they showed the details of their Jin-Roh armor. Very nice stuff...

There's also really random stuff like swing dancing lessions and belly dancing lessions. 8-)

They, amazingly, do have child activities so that the whole family can go to the con, something *very* rare in conventions in general.

But it does have the feeling of a small con. If you do decide to go, Saturday is the day to go, as with most cons. :)

It's also for the ultra geeky too, the dealer's room will have Dr Who and Red Dwarf stuff, which is sorta hard to find anywhere. :>

Ok, i really should get back on topic about Recca Con.... :) Sorry for the OT everyone. :>

videogirlc
03-09-2003, 02:22 AM
Sorry one last Bay Con question. Do they have daily passes ZiggyB, I'll probably only go for one day.

ZiggyB
03-09-2003, 02:47 AM
Yep they do. Um... the price is usually not posted online, but it's like $20 I think...

I'll make sure to say hi if I see you. Last time it was... Japantown right? :)

Check out the the web page, they'll post a full schedule of events so you can decide which day is best. It's usually saturday though since that's the day of the masqurade.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
03-09-2003, 02:47 AM
There will be an event in 2 weeks. on saturday, 22nd of march beginning at noon. I got that from Jason Paguera, The con head of Recca-Con.

Michi
03-09-2003, 03:56 PM
New event? Mwee. Something to do whilst unable to attend Anime Oasis. Rock. :F

RyuHayabusaDOA2
03-09-2003, 08:40 PM
Michi: Yeah... I'm thinking of going since I'm not going to ani-jam.

Eurobeat King
03-09-2003, 10:22 PM
Any other details you can say about the event on March 22nd? Like place, time (how long will the event run for), and what activities there might be? If it's a one-day event like Reccacon was supposed to be in May, that will be fun. I think everyone who goes to some sort of anime-event, it'll ease the pain of not being able to go to either Anime-Jam or Anime Oasis.. :thumbsup:

I might go to BayCon! It's a free spot, so hmmmm... maybe!

Noon to 5pm doesn't sound too bad, and afterwards we can all go out to eat dinner like we did last year after the masquerade. A large group of us (both Wayne's, USA Musume, Otaku Outpost, World of Anime, Lionel, and myself) went to TGIF's for dinner, and a good meal was the perfect way to end Reccacon 2002 (Saturday.) Perhaps after the event on the 22nd if anyone's interested, we could try and organize a dinner-outting. :)

Here's something else: Admin had that great idea about the photoshoot down in San Diego last weekend, and he suggested I do the same for No.CA cosplayers. I told him I didn't have the time to gather cosplayers up unless they were already going to plan for it. So for this Reccacon event on the 22nd, does anyone want to cosplay and get a mini-cosplay.com gathering going? I'll be bringing my camera (and possibly the chibi-printer) and will take pictures of anyone who's in costume. (Doubtful I'll get 298 pictures like Admin did, but we'll see..) ;)

Ryu: Will it be at the same place, at the college?

videogirlc
03-11-2003, 04:25 AM
As long as I'm not the only one in costume I'm fine with doing it.

Michi
03-11-2003, 05:03 AM
Mmmmmmm sounds interesting. Photoshoot. Although I have nothing to wear. :X

Babbit_Chan
03-11-2003, 09:42 AM
Might have to break out the old Anthy costume since I've got nothing else till Fanime o_O;

Miaka No Baka
03-11-2003, 11:44 AM
ooh sounds good but is this event even happening? I would think they would post it on the con webpage or something... A mini cosplay.com photoshoot would be good. I'd go but I'd have to see if aoshi wants to too, the cost of gas is rediculous!

Aya Mizu
03-11-2003, 09:54 PM
Errr, 22nd isn't a possibility for me so I hope everyone going has fun ^^

Blaaaaah I don't think it's worth it. I have to work on CBF stuff. :P I can wait for the actual con~

Eurobeat King
03-14-2003, 12:23 AM
Michi: Aww, you should go. Something to do, and you have a month after the 22nd (a little less) than CBF.. I've got nothing else to do that weekend, and like I said, it'll be something to do on that weekend to get over not being able to go to Anime Oasis. :schitzo:

Ryu: Swap-meet, huh? Meibi I'll see if I have anything to sell.. We're allowed to sell stuff for $$ like at Animagic? What's allowed and what's NOT allowed?

If I cosplay, I might bring either Shinji or Ohgami (I wore both to Reccacon last year) I still plan to take pictures of cosplayers, and the photoshoot for those who will show up in costume is still on. :) So for those who are going and plan to cosplay, my camera will be there! :D

Michi
03-14-2003, 12:34 AM
I don't have a con til Fanime, actually. ^^; Because no AO and no A-kon. Feh! I dunno. We'll see?

Yeah, sell stuff for $ :D and I think the usual rules apply...I guess for this anything can be sold, but everything hentai must be covered. I'm going to sign up for the swap meet cause I want to get rid of some stuff... :D and yeah, I'll be there and cosplayers are welcome, everybody. :cheers:

Eurobeat King
03-15-2003, 02:20 PM
I'll see if I have anything I can part with, like old anime books, manga, a few DVD's, and videogames (PS2 & X-box) Hentai has to be covered, huh? OK, I can do that.. ;) Although, I'm not sure if I'll have a table at all, since if there's going to be a gathering of cosplayers and photoshoots, I don't want to be stuck at the table when pictures need to be taken, and HOPEFULLY the weather will be nice n' sunny to take pics! :)

It looks like I'll be bringing Ohgami and Hideo to the gathering, since they're easy to change back n' forth into. I chatted with Lily (Neko-twins Lily) and she might bring her Project Justice's Ran costume if she gets it done in time. I told her about the gathering, and she'll be home for Spring Break, so she and her sister Kie should be going. :D

I figured out the timing to this. It's very up in the air since it's the weekend before finals. I really want to go to this one since my finals don't start 'til Tuesday (only have 3 this sem!), but my friends have like 5 or 6 finals. So, I think the X group is going to be held off 'till Fanime, but I will still wear Karen (or Yuzu Nekoi if I get her done in time). I think my bf is going to go as either Seishirou or Subaru. So hopefully, it will work out...

only 2 more days! It will be a nice distraction from all of the war that's going on and I can't wait!

Eurobeat King
03-20-2003, 05:57 PM
War sux, but not much you can do about it.. We had a bunch of protestors outside the Metreon today which prevented us from opening on time (we were lucky to open at all) and it was interesting seeing from above the police in riot gear turning back a group of people trying to block a street. (idiots..)

Anyway, I need to prepare for Saturday, get my costume(s) ready and prepare my camera for pics. (Still need to empty my memory cards of the remaining Katsucon pics..) :thumbsup:

I'll be there before noon, so I hope to see as many people in costume as possible for Saturday. We'll make the most of it, and just pray for sunshine that day.. :)

RyuHayabusaDOA2
03-20-2003, 07:26 PM
Al: yeah me too. I swear that all of us are going to need this. I'm glad that at least you guys opened at all.

videogirlc
03-21-2003, 03:35 AM
The protestors sucked. They blocked traffic and prevented muni from running. I can understand them wanting to make a point but they were just being nuisances. If they block off the bay bridge there will be no way of me getting home.

I'm going and bringing my Anthy costume (I won't have to take my glasses off XB). If you see an Anthy with a little brother that's bigger than her, it's me..

Just a question - are you guys coming IN costume or changing into when you get there?

Eurobeat King

It was good seeing everyone who showed up yesterday, like Claudine, Kenny, Terrence, Louie, Ray, Jason, Jorge, and more. Oh, and Mr. Wendell, I can't believe it's been since Reccacon 2002 in June that I saw you, man, but good to see you're doing well. :D Thanks to AoinoHoshi, VideoGirlC, and Babbit_Chan for showing up yesterday in costume, and I was able to get a few pictures of your costumes (hoped you like the pictures I printed for ya) :) I'll post them up soon, else I'll just include them when I send admin the pictures from CBF next month.

It's good that they rescheduled Reccacon for November, but sadly, I'll be at Nekocon that weekend, so I won't be able to make it to Recca on the 8th. :( Wish I could, but it'll be the 3rd year I'm going to Neko, so it's become tradition for me. Still, it was good going back to the college yesterday, and there's still lots of CA anime cons/events for the rest of the year like CBF, WonderCon, Fanime, AX, SDCC, and Animagic. Hope to see everyone there! :skidude2:
