Every now and then Suncoast has a anime promotional thing where they have anime DVDs on sale and they have a cosplay thing (I wouldnt call it a contest) and there are alot of local anime fan that come together and just hang out. There two places that do Animania the Suncoast at Cary Towne Center (Cary) and The FYE at Hanes Mall (Winston-Salam). And they are alway on the same day.

You better believe I'm going! It'll be the last event I go to before I move. I'll take the day off from work and you can count on me being Seras Victoria from Hellsing.

I'd wear Sunako from Wallflower, but I need to freshen up my blood since I screwed it up the first time around

My friend, Sam, and I have already determined that Integra and Alucard are making an appearance as well.

And, funnily enough, Animania is on my 29th birthday. I can think of worse ways to celebrate it. :toothy:

What are the limitations? Cause I was Cloud at AZ (with the big huge apocalypse sword) and was wondering if I would be able to bring that?

06-23-2008, 10:59 AM
I swear suncoast never wants me to go to Animania again. Every time there is a new one I'm always doing something that I've had planned for months ;-;

And for the limitations, I believe you can bring sword/gun/knife props but they have to stay in suncoast and then the judges have them on their table during the contest. You can't really carry them around because some people don't know what cosplay is and will freak out that you have a humongo sword.

Welcome to the N.H.K its all a big conspiracy. They dont want you at Animania.

Salty I agree, Cause every time i have gone I havent seen a huge sword just flimy small toy plastic ones. And not everyone know cosplay.

Maaan, I've missed the last 3 animanias, and it looks like I'm gonna miss this one too. Oh well, I'll be in texas ( hey chevron, remember the girl cosplaying as Cheza at animazement? I'm goin with her :-P) Kinda sucks that I've missed so many even though I live so close to cary. Oh well...

Tigress
06-23-2008, 07:46 PM
I would call up the mall or Suncoast staff beforehand and ask about the mall security's stance on prop weapons. They probably won't mind because they're used to the cosplayers invading by now, but it never hurts to check.

Personally, I'm leaving my "Baretta" at home to avoid any drama.

OH! Major announcement from Animazement's forum.

We want everyone going to Animania to go out as a group and play good old fashion Cosplay Laser Tag!

Right now, we're looking at going to Frankie's Fun Park and playing there after Animania because it's open until Midnight.

I love the idea of this event, but unfortunately I'm a young professional in a field that is rather. . . antiquated at times. I worry that if I was seen in cosplay I'd lose some of the respect that I've worked so hard to earn.

So I may be at Winston, but I'll just be cheering. I do look forward to seeing all of you in costume, though! ^_^

Biomedical research, actually. As a graduate student you have to deal with enough degradation on a daily basis, the last thing I want to do is invite more. Besides, having a hobby outside the lab is kinda frowned upon (LOLWHUT, you only spent 72 hours in the lab this week? You slacker!). But hey, maybe that's just my personal situation. Anyway, I won't be cosplaying in my hometown until after I get the comma. ^_~

Forgive my ignorance, but what does NID stand for?

Some companies are populated by employees that are from the baby boomer generation and either never "mentally" graduated high school or see younger employees as a threat to their security in the company and treat them like garbage. So respect can be hard to get and maintain.

In industries where networking, socialization and maintaining a "professional" image are keys to professional advancement, doing something "weird" like cosplay can severely retard a career, if not destroy it.

I used to work in real estate. So I know Elke's situation all too well.

The laser tag situation is kind of...complicated right now.

At this point, due to more people than I expected, I'm concentrating on the Animazement.com forum crowd instead of trying to run between here and there and repeating everything twice.

Feel free to join the Animazement.com forum though, most of the people here are there as well.

Aren't office politics wonderful? My opinion on that is: What you do on your own time is your business and no one else's. As long as it isn't adversely affecting your job performance, who the frak cares what you do outside of the office? Anyone that wants to give you flak for cosplaying should go get a hobby of their own.

Unless it's changed since I went in December, Hanes Mall doesn't have a stage. :p

And the Cary event starts at 1 pm sharp. We're also planning on doing a Cosplay Laser Tag at Frankie's Fun Park at around 5 or 6. I plan on bringing a sign-up sheet so we can call ahead and tell them how many to expect.

Maaan, I missed it. I was really looking forward to this one too. Oh well, I'll just have to make sure I get to the next one

I had fun. I kept getting attacked, but I got to hang out with people I haven't seen in a while, which was nice since I move soon...Though I did get told I suck for leaving.
I was the Seras with the pathetic attempt at a dog Alucard plush. I will have a decent one by Animazement...One made with a pattern

Anybody with pictures from Winston? I was stupid and didn't get a picture of myself in costume. For anybody that hasn't checked out the youtube vids, they are amazing. Thanks Riku and Roxas for uploading those!
