:spinner: I was just wondering is anyone was planning to go to Anime Boston 2003. ^^

Sami
09-17-2002, 06:34 PM
Yes yes yes!! ^_^ I'd love to go.. just another excuse to fly back home and see old friends, LOL.

Oshi

Yes! I found out it falls in a mid-term break weekend (meaning I have that Friday and Monday off), so I'm there!

too much money.... the bus ride alone would cost me around $70 then the hotel cost would be a lot since I don't think anyone would be able to join me. Then the admission would be another $30-$40 or so... Then the money I'm gonna spend at the Dealer's room.... I would need atleast $300 saved up to even consider going...

Why can't more conventions be held at New York instead?

Wahhh, I wanna go... I might if I can pull myself together for it! Finally, a con the closest to me that one has ever been and I decide to spend all my money going to cons far away! Ha ha. It would be another reason to cosplay though...

The only thing that will keep me from going to AB, is getting together people for a hotel room, whether I'll stay with NYO! or my college anime club

I can only assume that you're in the west coast where animagic and anime expo and all those other good cons are at....

Sami
09-23-2002, 12:44 PM
Okay, so I'm definitely going... that means... *ominous music*... more costumes... dun dun duuunnn...

I honestly have no idea what to make now. I'm trying so hard to get all my cotsumes for each con figured out, and it's just... gggh! RAGE! *kicks over a trash can* Hey.. Fujin would be a cool costume.. :D

=(( I don't think I'm going. It's hard enough trying to persuade my dad to letting me going to shoujocon. I think he'd have a cow if I asked to go to anime boston too. and my funding is only for shoujocon now. ^^: too expensive for me heh heh. =p

Well seeing how I live on Cape Cod I really really want to go. Boston is an hour away (well unless there is traffic) so lets just say about an hour and a half. I want to go, but I've never been to a convention before and non of my friends are really into this type of thing.

If anyone would like to go with me or has an "words of encouragement" give 'em to me! *i hate being shy*

eh, then I could wear my Chii costume. :)

Chiri
10-06-2002, 01:33 PM
I think Mits and I'll be there (in our OVA II Tasuki costume and her OVA Kouji costume) ... @__@ We just need someone to get us there ... and so far we don't have anyone :bigcry:

But then again, it's a tad early, so we don't exactly know yet >^^< But we really want to go, however ....

You're so close! Go go gooooooo! Don't be afraid to go alone! I'm probably going to be alone, but I'm going to get all dressed up and have some fun anyway! He he he. It's too good for a con to be so close, so take advantage!

I registered last night. I made the deadline for the cost cutoff by less than nine minutes! Almost cost myself an extra $5.

You should all go to the official site (http://www.animeboston.com) and check it out if you're thinking about going. It looks like it'll be a really good time. Peace!

I am going! it will be my first time cosplaying and my first convention!

I might compete if I have a semi-decent costume. ^^; I probably won't win anything, but it'll be good experience, darnit! *psyches self up mentally, yeah*

10-18-2002, 01:03 AM
Ooo I have spring break for this so I might just go...might also stay with a friend in Boston but that isn't definite.

I will definatly have my Sivil outfit done, can buy the wig with b-day money before this con if I do go. Not sure if I will have any others done.

10-21-2002, 07:01 AM
If I have a car by then, then I might definitely go with another friend, but if I don't, my friend will have a car but I'm not sure how his parents will think about me and him driving alll the way to Boston (3 1/2 hour drive). I'm willing to go extremes to go to a con!!! :D Only time will tell whether I'm going or not......

Something Lulu
10-23-2002, 12:58 PM
I'm thinking about going... It falls during my Spring Break, and if I plan ahead I can get the time off from work. It really depends on my friend in MA, and if I can stay with her and get her to come along. The 18th is Good Friday and the 20th is Easter so those dates might be a problem for her... Also, if I could hook up with some cosplayers who will be there and maybe do a group that would be cool. I already know a lot of ppl going have Lulu costumes (I have one too lol) but I've also got Skuld and Tifa, and by then I hope the have Faye and a Chobits costume done. What costumes do people think they will be bringing?

> What costumes do people think they will be bringing?

Young Katan.. well, that's a definite, since I'm (planning!) on meeting up with a few other AS cosplayers! As for the second costume, it depends.. if I'm going to help in the skit, I may as well wear that costume all day to cut down on the amount of stuff I'll have to bring. ^_^

Never mind.... change of plans.... I'm gonna try to go to Otakon instead. hopefully cosplay as Kazumi and meet Himemiya and the other HJ cosplayers.

I'm going to try to go, but no garauntees My boyfriend lives in Malden, MA, which is right outside of Boston. Heck, if I wanted to scare all of those Bostonian commuters, I could go in costume on the T , since the stop is right by his house (but I'll probably simply drag him along and make him drive me or something). Maybe I'll wind up making my cosplay debut.....maybe, if I dont chicken out... :thumbsup: . I have a tendancy to be kinda shy sometimes :bashful: imagine that.

I didn't know you were going to ABoston, Usagi! Are you going to be bringing some of your way cool artwork? lol

I'm pretty sure I'm going - its going to be my first con as well, so I'm psyched. :p Some of my friends and I are most likely going to go as some of the old-school Final Fantasy characters from FF1 - more specifically, the white, black, and red mages.

Also have to figure out rooms...sad, I have Otakon figured out but not ABoston X_x

If i have enough time and money I wanna make a sakura costume or sakura's uniform or something. . . I kinda wanted to be Naru too but maybe next year. .

Anyone have any idea on the turnout they're expecting? I'm always curious about how many people will show.. ^__^

As far as costumes, I honestly have NO idea who I'm going as right now.. ^^;;; I can be finicky about my costumes. I might bring Kidd. I might bring Secret Costume. I might make a whole new costume!! (HA) Who knows; I probably won't until a week or so before. ^_-

According to the website, as of early last month they had over 500 pre-regs, though it's still a little early to estimate attendance.

I have NO clue what I'm going to wear, though apparently I've entered the masquerade with a costume I haven't made yet, so I'd better have that one, at least.

TyJILDown
12-08-2002, 10:05 PM

12-09-2002, 12:23 AM
I keep looking at the material for my costume and wondering why it won't just make itself... (<---has little free time). I was panicking the other day waaaaaaaaaaay in advance about it getting done, when my friend reminded me that I'm supposed to have TWO done. **; I'd better get going though, as it could take me 4+ months just to get one done...ahhhh...

Something Lulu
12-10-2002, 12:09 PM
At least you have the material lol. I get home from work sometimes and think "Now would be a really ideal time to work on the costumes...if only I could find the time to buy the material!" So I've been getting all my wig stuff done so at least I don't have that to worry about. >_<

TyJILDown
12-10-2002, 03:56 PM
I have most of the material...stupid me just never bought needles for the certain fabric and proper color thread!! Gah, what is wrong with me!!

I also have to pre register after the holidays. I would have it done now if stupid me didn't have to pay for a new pair of contacts -_-

Hopefully I'll be going. Plans are not definite yet but it looks like it will be a great time. I bet all of you can tell that I am a "newbie", but I have gone to several conventions. It's funny bc I never thought this would be sooo addictive. And I plan on wearing my first costume at this con. I am really excited!!:D

I'm excited about going. They have dance parties Fri and Sat nights, plus special performances. It looks really cool. I went to the Big Apple Animefest and it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Anime Boston looks a lot better!!
I'm hoping I will have a costume for it. It's difficult to find someone to make a good costume for me.
Well, my search continues!!!

Hey Bunny and Anime Kid, since you guys live so close to the con could you give me some advice on what area I should book a hotel in. I dont want to find a hotel in Boston bc I don't know the area well and I don't want to get a gross hotel.
What's a nice, clean, safer area to find a hotel around the Boston area? I'm looking for something outside of the city.
Thanks a bunch! :)

Koumori
12-25-2002, 06:03 PM
I think at least one of those posters is under 15 and probably won't know. :) But there's nothing wrong with any of the major hotels in Boston. You can get a room at the Park Plaza, where the con is being held; it's a very nice, clean, centrally located hotel. I've stayed there before. Or any of the other hotels in the financial district or Copley areas would be just fine - just stay around downtown and you shouldn't have any trouble.

chocoborancher
12-26-2002, 08:28 AM
Taking several other hotels into consideration, I have discovered that the Park Plaza (official con hotel) is one of the cheapest hotels in the area. Considering the other things going on in Boston that weekend, the con rate is quite cheap.

Anime_kidd2k2
12-26-2002, 09:16 AM
yeah the park plaza is EXTREMELY cheap during the con, only $120 (i think, or sum near that) but if u really dont want one in boston, look for a holiday inn, they got those all over the place. theres probly a website, they probly have a search engine on it. well, hope i helped :P!

Ack... Not exactly the place to ask.. but since most posters here seem to be headed to Anime Boston, and since no one answered my post in another thread (meanies. ^^) I'm going to post it here. In short, sweet broken english.

Slayers Cosplay Group

Need a LINA INVERSE. Need a GOURRY GABRIEV. Need a FILIA.

Have a Zelgadis, an Amelia, a Xellos, A Zangulus, and a Prince Phil. Wouldn't mind a Martina, a Sylphiel, a Valgaav etc.

Seriously! We're running out of time to put this together! If you, or anyone you know, is interested, please contact me! If you live in the Boston Area, we'll even come pick you up! (that includes the Cape, and Weymouth, Worcester, etc.) Not so sure about rooming establishments... We might all just stay at my Dad's house. ^^ He lives around there.

Most people are trying to find rides to cons through this site, and the sites for the actual cons. And it's not like we wouldn't contact them through ways other than the internet. Sheesh. It's not like my post was 'Any succulent young women want a ride from meeeeee?!'

Now that I am already for this con, I would really like to meet some of you. None of my friends are into anime like I am and it would be nice to befriend people who are into the same things as I!
I don't sound too lame, do I? :) Maybe not lame, just very friendly! :) :)
Hope to hear from y'all!

Well if any of you want to say hi to me...just come up to me! My name is Dana and I will be dressed as Neo Queen Serenity. I'm a little tall about 5'8. So make sure you say hi and tell me how you know me, because I have a horrible memory and probably might think you're some crazy person! :)
Then when I meet a few people I won't feel as weird about going to the cons. Plus, its always nice to meet new people and maybe even some new friends! (Geez...I am lame!!)

I'm goin....OH YES! ^-^ my friend and I shall be going as Chii and Dark Chii..scaring my sister, cause we're freaks like that. I couldn't get a room, I was planning this since last years Arisia last year when I picked up the flyer.

My sister, did NOT want to stay with 2 hyperactive, anime-loving teenage girls for the whole convention.

So we'll more than likely be there on Saturday ^-^ and this is my Cosplay debut...so ya ^-^

Hihi! It's Michi, Masquerade Director for Anime Boston 2003! I'm so excited to see so many cosplayers interested in coming to Anime Boston this year! Just so you all know, there is a Cosplay Groups gathering times schedule on the Anime Boston BBoards so if you want to put together a group or have already and need a time to meet, just let me know and I'll update the list on the boards!
Also, the price of membership jumps up again on January 19th, so get yours now and save the $5.00 for other anime goodness! Look into getting a room too 'cause they are going FAST due to the Boston Marathon being the Monday after the con!

Oh, and if anyone hasn't checked out the <a href='http://www.animeboston.com'>Anime Boston</a> website, then you should know that we ARE taking Masquerade registrations online right now, but space is LIMITED due to time restraints. If you want to wait and register AT the con, you can do so, but you will be able to register for Catwalk ONLY, unless we miraculously have time to let you do more. I'm sorry for this, really (I'm pretty easy to pursuade, though) but I just want to make sure everyone has time on stage! Time they deserve in the spotlight! Hehehe!

Okies, that's it for now! ^_^

*sigh* This is an old thread...BUT I'M GOING! On Saturday, I'll be there with some friends ^^ Ooh, I live about 6 miles from Boston, and since this is my first convention I can't wait!

The only thing I fear is the train-ride home. *shudder* I seriously hate nighttime train rides...

Oh, yeah! I'm going as Rinoa, but I think you all know that! I've been talking about it soooo much!

I'm replying late also, but well, since I just started going to school in Mass, I decided that I should go, and I was convinced to by a fellow anime geek I met here. So now I'm all registered and am probably going to camp out in his room. I got the finishing touches for my Kikyou costume (I was Kikyou at BAAF in August, but since then I've cut my hair, so it's really short now, and don't feel like having bangs again, so I'm getting a wig). If anyone knows how to make a round red necklace that will STAY PUT, please help me. I used yarn for my last necklace and that was irritating. :(

Silla - Rinoa rocks. Have fun :)

Although, I'm about to kill myself for picking such a hard character to cosplay. :waaaah: -___-;;;

I have heard that a lot of people have not got them yet....if worst comes to worse though, when ya check in they can look your name up and as long as they see you have paid, they will give it to you there.

I think the hotel has been sold out for a week now ^_^ I might be able to stay in the con hotel though because my mom is going to the con with my little sis so she will be able to see the people I could room with.....I would really want to stay at the hotel on the masquerade day though since it is at night.

It will be cool to meet everyone that I have talked to through these boards too ^^ Oh, and I saw your Chii costume, it is really cute!

oo! when you do, we should meet up some time and take pictures!! :D

and yes, making more than one costume at a time can be a very dangerous thing.... @_@;;

according to the Anime Boston website:

"Pre-registered and waiting?
If you've pre-registered and haven't received your postcard in the mail yet, please be patient and read questions 14 and 15 in our FAQ. Don't panic. "


and questions 14 & 15 from their FAQ:

"I pre-registered but haven't received a postcard yet. Am I really registered?
Probably. Our postcards get sent out in batches every few months. People seem to start to panic every couple months anyway. Just be patient.

I never got a postcard! How will I get my badge?
Don't panic! Just show up at the convention and we'll take care of you. It might help if you bring along some form of ID. "

Hope this helps some.

Okay, so I'm really late! (as usual! I wouldn't be Usagi if I weren't perpetually out of the loop!) Aaaanyways, I'll be there Saturday as Sailor Moon. All I have to worry about is navigating the T in costume. ~_~
