To my knowledge, AXNY isn't going to happen in 2003! :(

Instead, there's the Big Apple Anime Fest, and I was thinking of going out for that. Can anyone tell me what that one's like? :p

Hahahahahaha!!!! You're kidding right? :D

But seriously, it was a half assed con ran by CPM. You had to travel all over midtown manhattan to get to the events.

Ranma Saotome

BaaF was like my first con, so most of my memories are of the warm fuzzy type. It was virgin con, so things werent as ran well as they could have been, but I had fun. But this year's BaaF has a great location, so that's cool. And Baaf was responsible for ALL the good guests and movies at AXNY last year, so mucho props towards em.

Go to BAAF 2003! It's going to be a whole lot different and better! Everything won't be spread out and it's going to have what every other con has but more! I went last time (BAAF 2002), which was my very first con and I had a blast! :)

Check out the website:

We soo need a real BaaF thread......

Ranma Saotome

There is one floating around. Someone go pester Admin for a BAAF Forum.

I wasn't too fond of AXNY personally...Just not impressed. I moved from Florida to Rhode Island this summer and stopped by the con on the first day. (Saturday). It was worse then trying to fit 10 pounds of cake in a one pound pan it was so crowded! Then again, I'm spoiled with Jacon. Which is and will always be my favorite convention.

I may go again if it's just going to be BAAF (Without the AX in front of the con, it will probably be smaller.), and I don't mind going all over midtown if they give reasonable times between events since I know my way around the city well enough. However, if they are expecting another crowd like they had last year, they may consider getting a bigger venue in a more open area, even if it's not in Manhattan directly. Like Adelphi University in Garden City on Long Island or something.

Just a suggestion! ^_^

You and every person that went felt the same way.

Ang
04-30-2003, 11:07 PM
I think we all should fly down for Jacon. ^_^ It's at the end of this month (May.) in Orlando. It's a sweet mediocre-sized con that's always lots of fun.

Shameless non-paid advertising: http://jacon.org

That's why I'm going to Animazement. ^_~

Never been to Animazement, though I heard it's fantastic!

05-02-2003, 12:11 PM
How come BaaF still doesnt have it own board....?

Ranma Saotome
05-02-2003, 12:35 PM
Because it fell under AXNY... >.<

Kawaii Yuna
05-02-2003, 12:44 PM
BLAH AXNY!! We need to change this to BAAF. o_O

Ang
05-02-2003, 04:24 PM
I said the same thing about Jacon...It's a fairly large con and it doesn't have its own board either! Heck, Anime Festival Orlando does, and AFO is blah.

05-03-2003, 02:55 PM
The dealers' room was packed T_T <---almost died there :D
I was like invisible o_O Someone almost walked on me until I yelled out ^_^;;

Ang
05-03-2003, 08:37 PM
The only way I got into the dealer's room at AXNY was through the exit doors...Till they caught on. I ran into some nasty smelling fanboy folk in there too, yuck.

TheAnarCHris
05-05-2003, 08:23 AM
Maybe we should petition a BaaF board or sum crap.

Anywho, if ppl don't already know, there's a board decaded to all NY cosplayers (called the NYO, easy no?) I encourage all to check it out, seeing how we're planning many an event b4 BaaF, that should reek of the fun.

Ranma Saotome
05-05-2003, 12:31 PM
Well, I wonder if they will have porn stars again.

TheAnarCHris
05-05-2003, 04:22 PM
ROFL, and ppl wonder why the anime section is always near the porn in video stores.....

BAAF won't be all spread out this year like it was last, just at the mariot. It's NYC's home town con and now that it's in it's second (3 if you count axny/baaf) I think it'll do better.

~Anna

Ranma Saotome
05-06-2003, 10:16 PM
Now Anna, will all of BAAF's events be on one floor or what?

Ang
05-06-2003, 10:56 PM
Those 5 or 6 floors or whatever KILLED me...That and the walk to and from Penn Station.

Ranma Saotome
05-06-2003, 11:06 PM
Indeed. Everything on 2 floors works sooo much better.

Ang
05-06-2003, 11:34 PM
Yeah, that and short skirts and escalators aren't a good combo.

Ranma Saotome
05-07-2003, 03:48 AM
Oh I wouldn't be too sure about that. ^_~

Ang
05-07-2003, 04:33 PM
That is why I had the red hoodie tied around my waist all day.

05-07-2003, 11:53 PM
I'm surprised that I'm not in the background of some pic from Saturday at the con. I was all over the place cause I was bored senseless. It was also the first con I went to without cosplaying, so I was sort of invisible.

LOL!! I agree with you on that! When I was volunteering last year, I was working at a table near the registration rooms and by an escalator. I so happened to glance at the escalator cause I was admiring everyone’s costume while they were going up, when this girl in a Tifa outfit was going up....ewwww! Just to say the sight wasn't pleasant. LOL! >_<

I bet Ranma would have enjoyed that! LOL!! JK! Oh, at BAAF last year I was watching you Ranma and a group of people practicing for a skit while I was on volunteering duty. A guy dressed up as Urd was in your group if I’m not mistaken…. I was the girl with a black hat on, but of course no one knows who I am. LOL!! ^_^

Ang: Will you be cosplaying this year if you do come to BAAF?

Ranma Saotome
05-08-2003, 01:55 PM
Guy as Urd? That's my good friend Brian! :) I may have to check my AXNY photos for ya. ^_^

Ang
05-08-2003, 08:09 PM
If I come yeah, I will probably bring one of two of my already made costumes...Unless I get the drive to make something new. The next plans I have could take me quite a few months and learning how to integrate dry ice into a wig.

Ranma Saotome
05-08-2003, 08:54 PM
Well there was two Tifa's there Kawaii Yuna. Was the Tifa you saw tall or short?

ROFL, which Tifa, there was like 3 of em (ballon, plastic or hat)?

Oh go fig that Ran-man had girls where he pratcied...we had sum old crazy guy who smelt funny watching us........

Kawaii Yuna
05-09-2003, 12:27 AM
LOL!! Ummm, so many Tifa's...Well, um, sorry I can't remember which one exactly but I guess she was short. LOL! Oh boy... ^^

TheAnarCHris
05-09-2003, 01:29 AM
Okay so that eliminate plastic...so we're down to baloon-boobs tifa and hat tifa.

Ranma Saotome
05-09-2003, 01:40 AM
Hawt Tifa? Who was that?!

Kawaii Yuna
05-09-2003, 09:42 AM
LOL!! Do you know these Tifa's? Who were they? LOL!

TheAnarCHris
05-09-2003, 01:27 PM
Well sorta..... The reall really good one was Kitty, one of the "higher ups" on this board, the one had a hat and that'd the only way I can identity her...thenhe one with the water ballon jubblies would have been my girlfriend Carrie aka Neoangelwink...she was in that FFU skit if that help jog your memory...and how does one use your "Tiny Bees"?

Ranma Saotome
05-09-2003, 03:09 PM
One of them is in NYO! Cosplay - neoangelwink. And the other used to be a mod here...

Kawaii Yuna
05-10-2003, 01:15 AM
Ah I see. I remember the girl with the balloon for boobs and I thought that was totally insane (was my 1st con ever, so I didn't know what to expect lol!). She's your girlfriend, that's sweet. It's nice to see a couple both into anime and cosplay. Yeah, I know who Kitty is, but didn't see her do her skit with Aeris cause my parents made me come home. :(

Well I can use my Tiny Bees by 1st loading them up with bullets then blasting my enemy with them in battle! lol! Yeah, the Tiny Bees is the name of Yuna's guns in FFX-2. They look pretty neato! ^_^

TheAnarCHris
05-11-2003, 03:54 AM
Oh... I thought u actually shot tiny bees....

TheAnarCHris

What time will you peeps be arriving at BAAF? I think the opening ceremony starts at 9am or something like that, but will anyone arrive earlier? Need time to change in costume and everything. Thankies! ^_^

05-21-2003, 09:52 AM
If I can get a room in the hotel, then I'll try and stay the night before - otherwise I'll probably be there by 8:30 (hopefully)

Ranma Saotome
05-21-2003, 10:24 AM
9am? Too damn early for opening ceremonies! X_X

Kawaii Yuna
05-21-2003, 10:48 AM
True, lol! That's why I said 9am or something like that. It's possible that it will be at 10am or later instead. *shrugs* Yo no say! However, if it is at 9 or 9:30am, go to bed early and get lots of rest! lol! ;) What are the times that the opening ceremonies start (or usually should) in general? Thankies! ^_^

Caryn
05-21-2003, 11:00 AM
I'm pretty sure they were at like 8 or 8.30 last year, although I could be wrong. I hope I'm wrong >.< That's too early for moi.

Ranma Saotome
05-21-2003, 11:35 AM
Opening ceremonies should be in the evening.

05-21-2003, 01:34 PM
Yeah chances are I won't be getting there til like 3, 4ish, so good luck with a morning meeting...

Kawaii Yuna
