I was great!

I watched tons of anime, watched my friend perform in a skit, and bought tons of cool stuff. *hugs plushies*

I only wish I had more time to hang out in the arcade.

I survived, though the Forces of Evil conspired to wreck our skit in Masquerade (we were the PSO cosplayers, and our music was started way too early!! ), and of course, the frequently broken elevators.

Nonetheless, it was an overall good time, and nice to see how it's done in Washington state.

Took quite a few pictures, and now I need to get them up... (fasttracking what I can)

Thanks goes out to Eurobeat King for handling my camera for one of the big group shots! :)

I was the Yu~ki person... transformed into Yu~ki neko.. and carrying around a hide plushy. ^^;;

But yes...IT WAS GREAT! XD

I had a LOT of fun, considering it technically was my FIRST time to Sakuracon (last time was 6 years ago for Year-One of Bakacon) and so I had a great time meeting a lot of new people, like people on the Sakuracon message board, as well as friends from the Bay Area like Moo, AJ, ArtWolf, Momma Kenshin, Jeanne, and more. I took a TON of pictures also, and again have over 1100 pictures to post like I did at Katsucon. There were a few repeats since I had a couple of photoshoots of my friends' wonderful costumes (thanks to Jeanne, Manda, Lauryn, & Colette) but I still managed to get most of the costumes during the con. (If I missed your costume, I apologize, as it was busy for me those 3 dayz..)

Overall I had a great time, and will go back next year if the scheduling is right. Nice meeting everyone who went and said hi to me, and hope to see you all there! :skidude2:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my photo Eurobeat King took of me on Saturday. Everyone who has seen the photo it says I look looks l should be cast as Hermione for the 7th Harry Potter movie. <blush> My natural hair color is very dark brown, so I didn't know what I'd like like with long curly light brown hair.

I could not believe the reaction that costume got!

*wakes up after massive post-con sleep-a-thon*

Sakuracon was very spiffy and I even managed to make it to two panels, which was two more than at Katsucon. XD

I met Nine, who crossplayed a great Lulu and Naga. He's really cool and sweet in person! Also saw quite a number of folks from the Bay Area. Hurray for the NorCal contingent!

The locale itself was odd... so narrow and long of hallways. I walked a lot this past weekend, which was good since it's exercise. ^_^;; It was incredibly easy to create roadblocks... just find a cosplayer from the same series (or even a random crossover!), pose together and bammo, instant wall o' photographers!

I would go again next year since it's a nice small con that's not too far away, but am not too sure on that since I don't know where I'll be at that time.

I wasn't there for very long (4 hours or so) so all I really saw was the Dealers Room, but I loved the people. Everyone was so friendly! :)

Yeah the long hallways were rather interesting. Every time you stopped for pictures, big traffic jam... everyone was really patient about it though which was really cool.

I was there as BloodRayne... vampire chick with ridiculous stilleto heels and big ass blades.

Thanks Shadow Lady!

Hi Aoshi! I KNEW you looked familiar! I just couldn't for the life of me remember where I'd seen you... only at like every CA event. Sorry that didn't register! I didn't get much sleep the night before so I was really out of it. ^^

Someone start posting pics! I wanna see all the costumes and people I missed seeing. :)

Hey look its Nine, I keep seeing you everywhere on forums ^_^

To tell you the truth, you're the one who got me here, so blah, yeah, hehe

Anyways... yeah... S-Con was pretty fun, I loved your Lulu, best one I've seen (On a side note, while you probably have no clue who I am, and I doubt this'll help, I asked you for a pen a few times while you were working the cosplay.com table).

Anyways, thankyas, and I know this is off topic, but damn Sakuracon was awesome... hehe

I had so much fun! And who would've thought so many anime fans are also wrestling fans? That was GREAT! Especially the masquerade skit with Shawn Michaels' music. Hehe, got me hyped to wear that costume afterwards.

I met so many people there! Including an online friend of mine who ends up being a friend of an ex-friend of a friend of mine. *LAUGH* Small world, eh?

I had so much fun in the masquerade, Nine, you made our skit what it was!

In response to pictures, I've got my small collection (42 pictures made it!) up on my website, at www.raider3.com (http://www.raider3.com) - Just go to "Anime", "Anime Con-Quests", and then to "Sakura-Con".

It pales in comparison to Fans' View, and possibly LionBoogy's LLNN report when it posts, but at least I'm getting off my butt and posting con photos for once. I knew I couldn't go wrong with a digital camera.

Now, I just need to work on being less shy, asking more folks for pictures, and taking more of them... (eek... when will i find time for sleep?)

Next con up: Anime Central, next month... staffing it, but I'll find time and energy to get out and see folks and stuff.

'allo, all. First post to this board. New member. ^_^;;

I loved Sakura-con! It was my best con ever! And my second con ever... And considering that my first con was Aka-con... Yes. This was much better. Anyway.

It was great! I had a total blast! I loved it there. I cried when I had to leave, too...

I was Saan, Miyu, and Michiru, BTW. I was in the cosplay with two Larvas. Our skit was about finding out which Larva was the real one.

*sniffles* I wish it wasn't over...

Raider3 nice pics on your site. A differnt take on Kenshin huh? I ordered a white hakama for the costume but it did not come in in time, as of this post it still has not come in. The black one will be put to good use in a future Kuno costume.

I had an infantly better time at SC this year than last year! For those who saw boo, I feel no regret. I may not have constructed him (thank my friend Alan) but it was my idea of putting my other friend in costume with out his knowing that spawned the doll. Those of you that are MT fans probably saw boo floating around Friday and Saturday, if you have pics of boo can you please send them to me.

I feel reeeeeeal left out considering Sakura-con was my first convention and everyone else sounds so...experienced. o_o; I didn't know about conventions until a year ago. >_< Definitely going to change that though! Mwahaha, now that I know, I'm going to go to every convention that's in my reach!
Any who...I was one of the many Sailor Saturn's, the one in the cosplay contest...not the one with all the other sailor moon characters who's music got messed up (poor them! I feel bad that that happened!), just me. I went from 8 in the morning to 10 at night on saturday, it was really fun except for the fact that it was hard to figure out what was going on at what time. I should probably end this gastly long reply...^^ I hope at more conventions I can meet more people, I was mostly scoping it out this time. :) I need to find more anime, cosplaying people who live close to me. ^^;

Ah, then Kenshin from the first 4-volume Rurouni Kenshin OAVs (a.k.a. Samurai X: Trust/Betrayal - Preview Info on the "Sessho Hen" OAVs - a.k.a. Samurai X: Reflection - suggests ADV is releasing a "director's cut" of the first OAV series - unless the DVD version was it... I need to hop over to ADV's site to get more info.)

That helps to explain about your costume. Hope that white hakama comes in soon.

Hey, I'm sort of new to cosplay.com but I've been going to Sakura-con since Baka-con'98. Some people might remember me last year as the girl with large Staff, large black cape and elf ears or the eastside anime founder. This year I was Dante from the video game Devil May Cry and Kuja from FF9.
I have to say Eurobeag King pictures of me, and lot of other people came out really good. I just got to say I like them! ^_^
I remember the past Sakura-con anime convention were always that good, off and on they were. This year rocked though!

I got to stay with two new friends of mine, with there friend Allen and Akuma Chris. Isn't Chris just one coolest guy out there? HE so nice! He'll like give hugs and cheer up peoples day. ^_^

Glad you had fun at your frist convention Subu! IT cool you got to do cosplay though! That always fun! ^_^

For those interested in having more time in hanging out a meeting more people, besides the Cherry Blossum Fair coming up at the Seattle Center there's supposly a Sakura'con/EAstside Anime BBQ that happens yearly. I think its the weekend at the end July this year if anyone interested. USually they have lots of games going on there, the only thing they ask for is food. *shrugs* Wasn't sure if you guys were interested or not, thought if people were interested in meetingand hanging out with others from the convention again.

It's great how Dawn got to have her B-day at the convention! hehehe Who else were you staying with? MAyhaps I remember once I am told of your great staying'ness thee Sakura-con, will be able to place you. XD I might not have seen you then though....

My friend liz with staying at the Marriot, *tear* I never got over and knew that my one close friends was had been able to make it was over there. ;_; Chirs just a cool guy, like being cool with everyone, he's just all over the place being his ever so Charismatic self.

*hugs to nine* Yeah I didn't any of us wanted to leave too! This one of my favorite Sakura-cons. Too bad I never got to meet you though. Maybe if my friend still wants to do his LuLu, you guys could have plushie battles or something. XD That just kick ass that you have coolness to dress up as the characters LuLu and Naga. You pulled them off prefectly! ^_^
