Alright whos going to the rave this year? this is my first year going to AZ and i wanted to know how it was last year and what should i be expecting this year. Are there any rave circles etc.

The rave is fun, theres an awesome DJ that comes every year and he actually has a thread about the music he'll be playing this year on animazement.com.

I didn't have any problems with any creepers trying to come up and dance on me, everyone is pretty friendly and just having fun but there WAS this extremely annoying conga line or something that kept going in circles running into everyone. Hopefully that won't happen again this year.

The best advice I can give you...is as much as you probably want to look really cute (or handsome, depending your gender) and wear a nice outfit....DON'T. It's hot as hell so wear as little as possible while still looking appropriate, ya know?

Is the room for the rave going to be bigger this year? Last year it was crowded and some guy grabbed my leg while I was looking for my friend. Not pleasant. >.>

Dude adam, your first year going? now I HAVE to stab you
But yeah the rave is pretty chill, except for the smelly perverts rubbing up against you *cringes*

Fallain
05-17-2009, 09:18 PM
Eiriol: ...did you just describe a rave with fast techno and brightly colored fangirls jumping sporadically around dancing as CHILL?

You, my good sir...need a new dictionary D:

Just know if you get stabbed by a slug with a knife and a fish tail, that's me ^-^

Fallain
05-17-2009, 09:52 PM
twinkie: Well i've never been to a con 'up north' (it always does make me wonder alittle at the fact that we're NORTH carolina but we're in the South) but i'd assume most raves are the same...techno, flashing lights, glow sticks...except the DJ plays awesome j-pop remixes and hopefully minus the mass amounts of drugs

twinkie
05-17-2009, 09:55 PM
I take offense!

theres just about as much drugs up here as in the NC. :P
drugs are everywhere.
well i cant wait for AZ, its been 2 months without a con and im dying ;_;

Eiriol
05-17-2009, 09:57 PM
2 months pshhhhhhh *scoff*
Me and my sis only go to this con that's like......a year, so.....don't complain

twinkie
05-17-2009, 10:07 PM
....
okay i'll stop complaining lol.
a year is waaaay too long to wait. why dont you head up to this cons further sout or north?

Fallain
05-17-2009, 10:08 PM
well I was more referring to the fact that there will be 12 year olds at this rave so I was HOPING there would be less drugs o_O

Eiriol
05-18-2009, 06:22 AM
Yeah I wanna go to other cons n such but I'm just so busy ya know?
Lol 12 year olds at raves (thinks)

Fallain

Animazement raves are very similar to most Virginia/DC convention raves I've been to. I actually think it's better than Otakon because the room is actually DARK, and even though Otakon's little side rooms are amazing, there is literally no ventilation in them and they smell terrible.

Animazement usually shoves their raves in the biggest room they can come up with (the main event hall last year, not familiar with this new con center so I can't say for sure and I'm too lazy to go look). It's dark, loud, and thankfully well ventilated.

PLEASE WEAR DEODORANT
PLEASE TAKE SHOWERS
PLEASE DON'T JOIN THOSE GODFORSAKEN CONGA LINES
PLEASE RESPECT THE PERSONAL SPACE OF OTHERS

It'll be loud, Japanese or anime centric music remixed to a fast, pulsing beat with a few thousand sweaty nerds who really can't dance having an amazing time.

Clothing is basically whatever you want to wear, but keep in mind as Fallain said that it's going to be a bit on the warm side, not even considering your own rising body temperature. My outfit is probably going to be a silver pvc tube top with lots of straps, black shorts, fencenet stockings, boots, and fluffy bootcovers, plus my dread falls and goggles. I usually try to keep the ventilation at a maximum to keep from wanting to pass out and die, though a lot of girls do it for the attention.

In any case, there are some really pretty girls at Animazement, and the rave is their excuse to wear as little as legally possible without pissing off the con staff. :D

gothicadam

lol attack of the pretty girls*runs*

Fallain
05-19-2009, 12:26 PM
honestly, with the flashing lights and everything you can't really see anyone inside of the rave, and if your like me your having too much fun to notice what someone is wearing or if their pretty or not. It's before the rave while everyone is waiting around that you've got to be careful <3

And remember to take a water break at least every 3 hours

gothicadam
05-19-2009, 12:31 PM
psssh i dont need no break bring it on raleigh richmonds finest is coming:) NC vs Va right? lmao id loose

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 12:43 PM

Fallain

Nc > Va

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 12:45 PM
Amen

Fallain
05-19-2009, 12:47 PM
At first I was sad because I won't have the money to buy glow sticks

But then I realized i've got some left over from the Mardi Gras club party I went to a few months ago.

AND ONE OF THEM IS FUZZY

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 12:49 PM
Lol fuzzy glowstick xD
I'm planning on spending at least 200 dollars this year
Didn't have the funds last year

Fallain
05-19-2009, 12:52 PM
I'm just hoping i'll at least have the funds for food this year. My hours and paychecks got cut like a mofoker last month so I was seriously struggling to even finish my cosplays.

Needless to say, i'll be avoiding the dealers room

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 12:58 PM
Awww that stinks, dealers room is so fun

Fallain
05-19-2009, 01:06 PM
Yea, I'm debating starving myself alittle so I can get a good doujinshi this year

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 01:10 PM
Yeah, need to have a souvenir besides pics ya know?

Fallain
05-19-2009, 01:17 PM
yea, at the very least i'll get another $4 anime badge from the artist ally. I hope the same girl is there this year, I didn't get a Quatre last year :(

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 01:33 PM
I think i will spend a bit more time in artists alley this time, my sis thinks she wouldn't sell anything but she is beastly at drawing
See for yourself: http://wild-devices.deviantart.com/

Fallain
05-19-2009, 01:35 PM
wow that is amazing. I bet she'd do great in the artists ally. I draw too but i'm nowhere near her level and I don't post on deviantart...I mostly just play around on Tegaki E

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 01:38 PM
She isn't self confident enough to sell her work at a place like that, she thinks it's crap xP

Fallain
05-19-2009, 01:44 PM
Everyone feels that way about their own art. She'll get over it :3

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 01:45 PM
Yeah, she needs to make some moneh!
Anyways
About the rave.....xD

Shara-chan
05-19-2009, 03:29 PM
I was freaking out about not having any glowsticks either! XD But I have some left over from last year. A little tube of some unopened, and my friend that's coming with me may still have some. Last year we were too exhausted for the rave ((first AZ last year)), but we are SO gonna be there this weekend.

<3 Look for me in a yellow wig and purple dress, lol. <3

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 03:34 PM
Last year was my first year too, they have some rather Risque movies playing at the later hours o.O'

Fallain
05-19-2009, 08:14 PM
I didn't know about the movies...I'll have to look for those this year

Eiriol
05-19-2009, 08:20 PM

Fallain
05-19-2009, 10:18 PM
