Since the thread was 'moved' to here, I shall remake a new post.

Mochi Cafe will be coming to Anime Conji. We've been keeping contact with Ryan (the head chair) and will be running the Maid Cafe at the convention.

We hope to see everyone there and hope that people can make it to the cafe! :)

Chaz: Sorry. Couln't make it to the picnic. Had to spend the day moving stuff from a storage space to a garage.

Ita Chibi: Well, it could be worse. Almost every hotel I went to wanted to sell us Easter weekend, which would have put us on the same weekend as Sakura Con. I'm going to try to put more space between us and Sakura Con for 2011.

This was actually brought up at the meeting since a lot of stuff hasn't been posted yet. Reg is capped at 500, our goal is 300, I think we have about 100 now. If anything, if you ask it one of us should be able to answer your questions, and from what I know more info should be posted relatively soon.

And I'm tired.

So, I just got word from the UNSC that Master Chief will be attending Anime Conji making sure no alien attack occurs.

Nah, J/k. I will be bringing Master Chief and a Final Fantasy Character that I haven't decided on yet. Probably White Mage once more!

Thank you, Reaver! ^3^ Best of luck with all that!
That cosplay contest sounds like fun!
I need to get my tickets. >.<;
And decide what I will wear. o.o;
Maybe Kaname Chidori and/or Sousuke Sagara from Full Metal Panic!: Fumoffu.
Don't know yet!
Not sure if I can get to Scout, Darklynx. Sorry. >.<;

edit; Oh, yeah! Anyone know what the weapons policy is yet?
Couldn't find it on the site so far. Or am I just failure.
Cause Sousuke Sagara has a gun. But mine's super fake from a 99 cent store... Though it's one of those realistic looking ones. The same kind I used for Lady at Comic-Con so I hope it'll pass for Conji too! @>@

QuietKodama
03-01-2010, 01:47 PM
I'll be going, on saturday and sunday. ^^ (Friday afternoon class :c lol)

Anyway, I'd also like to know of a weapons/prop policy!
I'm bringing my Black RockShooter cosplay, and perhaps another I haven't decided on yet (or just run around in civvie clothes). I plan on bringing a wooden sword and my cannon, if i can finish it in time xD;;;

Can't wait for Anime Conji~! :3

Im so frustrated. They havent set up their policies (like no metal weapons and stuff like that) because I was planning on finishing my Anbu Sasuke cosplay and I want to use my metal katana. The cons in one month so its pretty janky. My katanas dull its not sharp at all.

jambreaker
03-04-2010, 01:18 AM
I would just as soon play it safe and have wood or foam weapons ready just in case there is a no-metal policy. It is California after all, and liability is king. I've only seen metal in LARP and weapons panels, but never seen out on the floor. With peace bonding everyone will just see the scabbard anyway. :lost:

Yeah, I would stay away from metal since for the majority of rules I've seen for cons state if it's metal, it has to be peacebonded to a sheath. I'm sure one of the other staff will actually know more than I do on this situation, but I would just say go another route regardless in case you'd want to use it at one of the other cons out there.

For the most part though, I never heard much about policies even though I asked why they weren't put up 2 months back x.o but yeah, most things have to be checked over by those doing security detail to be peacebonded and such.

Peacebonding to a sheath is usually pretty standard, but you can email them to be sure:

Looking forward to it -- should be a lot of fun!

Anyone have details on it yet? (parking situation, start/end times, how badge pickup works, etc..?)

I won't be cosplaying but will be taking photos the 3 days. If anyone cosplayers are interesting in setting up a photoshoot sometime during the con, send me a PM. I'm sure there are some great locations there and I'd love to get some unique shots outside of the exhibit hall.

See you all there!

As far as I've been able to gather on the official site, parking is $14 (if within the hotel grounds, not sure if that includes vallet/self park). Also, badge pick up times are throughout the con, at the con. I also had a similar question and was kindly given info on such on the site forums :3

Not sure when start/end times are, though! I'll have to look again.

04-04-2010, 12:32 AM
Thanks Kodama!

That's more than I was expecting for parking - I spoke to someone at the hotel and was told it was free if just visiting (but a fee for overnight (guests staying there)). I was more concerned about there being enough parking, so the price would have been a surprise to me - thanks for the info!

If necessary, I'd be happy to pay the $14 for guaranteed parking as there doesn't seen to be anywhere nearby to park.

Sorry about that Yuna!
I can't believe how soon it's coming. =(
I feel so unprepared.

I don't even know what outfit to wear on what day.
I'm thinking Kyo (Fruits Basket) on Friday, a make-shift TK (Digimon, kind of between 01 and 02, or Hurricane Touchdown kind of thing) on Saturday which is a for sure, and maybe Sousuke Sagara (Full Metal Panic? FUMOFFU) on Sunday.

Or Kyo on Sunday and Sousuke on Friday. Or Sousuke on Friday AND Sunday.
Or Kaname Chidori, but that's not 100% done and I'm too lazy to finish the final touches before then.. Thinking of not taking Kyouya with me this time. No fun without the other Host members. And Dante's too much of a costume to take with me.. Again, too lazy to fix anything I need to on that... o_______O;;

Ah, well we can have fun anyway right guys?! This is gonna be one heck of a party! =D

I can't decide what I want to do now! :)

I think I'm going to take it easy on Friday/Saturday and just wear it on Sunday.

I plan on staying the entire time (10AM - 2AM Fri/Sat? and 10AM-7PM Sun?) and think it would be way too tough to wear it while running around carrying all sorts of photo equipment with me. Plus I want to take photos of the RE group!

Tough decision. I've been taking photos at cons for the past 10 years - would be nice to just cosplay for once, but I know I'd regret all the missed photos. You just can't win! :)

I am really excited about this weekend but I found out about the con 2 days ago! Last minute planning FTW.
Ah, well. Better late then never right?

This Friday I will be there. :]
You will notice me because I will be wearing a lot of pink and black (cyber goth outfit).

Don't be afraid to come up and say hey. xD

I am also looking for a possible photographer. ^^

Well, I'll be roaming around trying to take pictures of everyone. I'll be happy to take your picture, and I'll even give you a badge ribbon for your badge to remember me by.

But if you're looking for a full-on photo shoot, that's not my bag. With over 400 people pre-registered, I'm sure some of them will be photographers looking to do that sort of thing, though.

Don't worry, you're not alone!

I waited until the last minute on this on and have been going back and forth on what to do for a few days now. Today alone I've changed my mind about 4 times on what to bring!

I still have quite a bit to get done before the con, so it'll be a challenge indeed. I didn't even know about Conji until a few days ago.

Hazel: I'll be going as a photographer this year - I've got all the cameras/lenses packed, memory cards emptied and batteries loaded - I'm ready to go! I know I posted it a few days ago, but again I'd be more than happy to set up some photoshoots for anybody interested. If anyone asks about getting photos taken, feel free to send them my way and I'll be happy to help out.

Now, all I need to find is an assistant to carry all this stuff around and I'll be good to go. Any volunteers?? :)

Kyouya! I feel your pain. I hate not knowing if I'm going to make it to places on buses. I had to take the bus system down to the LACC a while back xD

I'm so excited for AC, but of course, guess what happens? I'm sick xC Worst comes to worst, I have a sick mask and I can just draw my scar and fangs on it x3

Fortunately, a Con is one of the places where a sick mask can still be stylish and cool!

Can't believe it's finally here! (well, in 24 hours) - Can't wait - I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun and I hope to see you all there.

I'll be the crazy one there at 7:00 AM each day to make sure I have a parking spot - I'm going to try and stay until the end each night (2:00 AM?) - It'll be a rough (but very fun!) weekend.

If anyone else decides to show up early and would like to meet up, let me know!

Oh~ Bossu and Reborn-san~ whoo! xD



I know I answered this question myself, but I heard that the parking fee of $14 didn't have to apply for visitors only? Is this true or is it a rumor/ misinformation/ miscommunication?

Mike Rollerson
04-08-2010, 11:06 PM
^^ Awesome! Give me a call if you get there early, maybe we can meet up somewhere.

I took a look nearby on a map, and there really doesnt seem to be any (legal) parking nearby. Even the mall is pretty far (and probably not a good place to leave a car until 2 AM!)

I called the con about the parking and was told: Guests staying at the hotel will have to pay $10 for overnight parking. Guests "visiting" for the day (for a con) get free parking unless they stay overnight. I tried to get clarification on what "overnight" meant since the con ends at 2:00. They said "it doesn't begin at a specific time, it only applies to people parking overnight". I've heard they lock the gates at a certain point and you need to call the hotel (button on the gate) to have them let you out, and they may try to charge at that point - I really can't say. I'm hoping they realize that since the convention goes until 2:00, they should leave the garage open (and free to visitors) until at least 2:30 - 3:00.

Alright, will do :]
(I'll be armed with my silly little pointnshoot haha... in a middle school uniform xD;; (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2497224/))

Yeah, things look sort of cramped as far as parking, or at least not much elsewhere to spill over, except into neighboring hotels' parking ^^;;
But thanks for the info-- I'm happy to hear that. Though hopefully hotel management does leave the gates open 'till early morning and free of charge.

I've been looking at the Doubletree Club on Google Earth, and it looks like it has a good-size parking structure in back -- the only other option is MTS 88 between Old Town and Fashion Valley Transit Centers, but it runs every 30 minutes from around 6:AM to 8:PM on Friday, and once an hour Saturday, with no service on Sunday. Taxis could work, too ...

Just a heads up!

Got here about 7:00 and the parking garage seems a lot smaller than I thought
it would be. While most Of these are guests of the hotel, I have a good feeling it might be tough trying to find a spot later today unless the open up an overflow Lot next door

edit:
...and 15 minutes later, dozens of cars leave! Disregard the above for now, but I still don't suggest getting here too late (and not just because I'm here all alone ;) )

First day of Anime Conji was awesome!
There was a BIG minor set back when getting the badges though.

People who had to get their badges on-site had to stay in a line to get their badge. There was only one computer and one printer, so that made the process very slow. I had to stand in line for about two to three hours just for my badge.

It seemed highly on unorganized because I had to ask three times if tickets were still discounted at the door. Finally I got an answer after awhile.

Other than that, the con was awesome!

Everyone was nice to each other and it was a fun environment.

I can't wait until tomorrow!

Okay cosplayers! Be ready tomorrow, because a lolita in pink with a cake on her head [aka Princess Keyrey (me)] and a girl in a kimono and pink kitty cap [aka Kawaiidesudesuyuki-chan (amazing, right?)] will be attacking you with a camera and asking you to pose like a little Grell figurine. You have been warned. ;3 We got a good number of pictures today, but we're hoping for more tomorrow!

Anyway, mini review of day one! Buying tickets at the door was kinda lame, but after that the sales floor was pretty cool. Lots of cute stuffs! Mochi cafe was a little crowded, but overall not too bad. Played Jenga like a pro, I did. Also took part in the Pokemon Tournament. Don't underestimate the girl in the frilly skirt ;3 I'm a little sad I missed the Cost-Efficient Cosplay contest, but I'm hoping to go to more events tomorrow. I'm especially excited for the Gothic Lolita Vampire Ball [sounds so very Mana lol].

Just got back (plan was to stay until 2AM and go back at 7AM), but decided that was a bit much, so I headed out early. Saturday should be a bit busier, so I need any rest I can get before then. I met up with Yuna, Kodama and some of the others which was really fun. Met Wendee Lee and had her sign a couple Bebop DVDs. Got hit with the "Materia Beachball" about 10 times (I really think Rosegoddess just had it out for me!), did a couple photoshoots (I hope to have almost everything up by Monday!), met some other photographers and talked to a couple others who "felt my pain" about lugging around heavy bags all day.

This was my first small-con and it's definitely different from Comic Con! Tomorrow should be a lot of fun! Hoping to do a couple more photoshoots.

Here are a couple (literally!) from today:

I had a lot of fun there, but had to leave early this afternoon, so I couldn't make it to the talkback, but basically the one main issue that caused stress for me was that information was hard to come by, such as signups for Cosplay Chess -- that was missing from the grid that is looked at frequently when planning on where to go. I left earlier than planned so that I wouldn't be upset while still around everyone. I still plan to go next year though, and have put in an early registration for Conjecture in October.

So, today, was a bummer. There was nothing really going on when I got there. I caught the end of cosplay chest and went in for the swap meet. There needs to be more stuff planned on Sundays because it was down right boring today. I just sat around and looked at the different cosplayers. Workshops would have been nice during the day, or maybe even one panel.

Other than that, Friday and Saturday were big hits for me.

I would gladly go next year, and perhaps have my band play! :]

I stayed until about 5:30 today, but as you've both said there really wasn't much at all going on today. Still, I thought it was kind of nice - basically a day to hang out with your friends or other new people you met during the con without having to "be somewhere" all the time. I noticed there were a LOT less people today compared to even Friday. I had a lot of fun though and am really looking forward to next year. Some of the events really fell through (either they got cancelled or nobody showed up (the Poolside Cosplay consisted of one cosplayer, and the pool was closed so we all stood outside of the gate for a photoshoot)), but the ones that did work were a lot of fun.

It was cool to see Steam Powered Giraffe perform, I found the MEGA64 panel to be hilarious (maybe I was alone on this? :) ), and really met a lot of cool people there - for anyone of you out there, thanks for dealing with me all weekend!

It was the first con where I was able to just have fun - I didn't have to worry about being in line 6 hours early to hopefully get a spot for something, or make my way through a thousand people crammed into an aisle-way. I was able to talk to a bunch of people and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The nicest part - despite going off of 4 hours sleep each night, I don't feel completely exhausted like I always do during Comic-Con.

I just wanted to drop in and say for a first year con, I really enjoyed Conji a lot! I saw many of you from here and met a lot of really nice people. The events were... little? but I think that was to be expected. he staff was friendly and helpful, and with a few head scratching moments of "where did they move that to?" and "did they change the times?", it was epic. I look forward to going again next year!!

For those who were there, I was one of the Grells. The one with the... err, really real looking teeth? I dunno- I'm trying to figure out a different way to say which one I was other than "the one who's wig wouldn't behave". AH, ok, I was the Grell who got her head stepped on during the photography panel (with much love) from Sebastian.

Anyway, much enjoyed! See you guys at various other meet ups as they come around. =)

Did anyone take any pictures? I was Canada from Hetalia on Friday and Morty (with my Haunter Puppet) on Saturday

I think I saw some of you on DA. I need to upload video of your masquerade appearance and award acceptance. Prolly won't be for a couple days though. You looked great as both characters!

I took pictures of few cosplayers, shoot for one. lol. A lot of random con shot of the hotel. i shall post it when i can. ^_^

Thank you to all of you who made it out to the convention! We learned a lot this year about what worked and what didn't work.

I promise we will take all your criticisms and feedback and work our best to make next Anime Conji an even more fun experience.

Had a lot of blast at this con! I'm glad that the security wasn't very meanie, like the other cons that I go to. My only complaint is that the contents at con is bit thin, i.e. not enough interesting panels and activities but that's about it.

Saw world famous Chaz in his glory hat and beard but I was too nervous and very intimidated to go up and say hi to him. At least, I got to see cosplay chess, which was fun.

Hi everyone! I have pictures of a lot of you! The thing is, my kids are in most of the pictures with you. They were Kenpachi & Yachiru from Bleach. They may have thought you were really the characters you were dressed up as so it was a REALLY big deal for them to have their pictures taken with you. I swear I'll have a link to my pics by the end of today. You can look through them and if you want a copy, let me know and I'll email you the full-size pic!

Thank you SO MUCH to all of you who were so incredibly kind to them. You all made our first con an amazing experience. We made some great new friends and I'm hoping we'll see some of you around at other cons and definitely next year. Thanks again for the greatness!!!

It is SUPER MOM!! Hello hello, I was the Grell who got video of your kiddos waving, 2nd floor... daaaay 2? I have their masquerade performance and award acceptance on vid. I'll clip it for you (cough cough... after I finish my business taxes... cough cough). But yes, got really good footage- they were ADORABLE.

I wish I could've gotten more pictures on Saturday and Sunday, but my friend who owned the Grell figurine we were having people pose like seemed to have lost some of her enthusiasm for the idea. *sigh*

Also, I'm on the hunt for any pictures of me. I wasn't in cosplay, but people still took pictures e 3e;. I was the Micky Mouse/Plaid lolita on Friday, cake hat + pink dress on Saturday, and green cardigan + cream/flowery dress on Sunday.

You should have said hello! I was trying to take pictures of everyone -- granted, I wasn't trying very hard -- and I was giving out badge stickers and ribbons as I went along.

I didn't have any duties or plans at this convention. I wasn't sitting at a table, or running a department or a party, or volunteering as staff for anything. I was just another regular member like yourself.

I did do some random volunteering -- they needed help directing traffic at Registration Friday morning, so I was one of the people doing that. And when the daughter of my heart needed a break at Costume Repair Station, I sat in the room and made sure it didn't blow away.

Just got back (plan was to stay until 2AM and go back at 7AM), but decided that was a bit much, so I headed out early. Saturday should be a bit busier, so I need any rest I can get before then. I met up with Yuna, Kodama and some of the others which was really fun. Met Wendee Lee and had her sign a couple Bebop DVDs. Got hit with the "Materia Beachball" about 10 times (I really think Rosegoddess just had it out for me!), did a couple photoshoots (I hope to have almost everything up by Monday!), met some other photographers and talked to a couple others who "felt my pain" about lugging around heavy bags all day.

This was my first small-con and it's definitely different from Comic Con! Tomorrow should be a lot of fun! Hoping to do a couple more photoshoots.

Here are a couple (literally!) from today:

Hehe.....sorry Mike! I didn't have it in for you, I just have really bad aim. Hopefully next year I won't be the only one who shows up to the cosplay swimsuit gathering (Well, Hojo kindly played Materia volleyball with me). I do plan on making "Huge Materia Volleyball" a tradition, though! :)

Hello all,
Thank you, everyone, once again, for coming to Anime Conji. I think more than anything else all of you made this convention fantastic. In particular, I was really impressed by the cosplayers this year, both those wandering around the convention and those in the masquerade. I didn't see a single "L" cosplay. :)
I know that there were a few issues, (slow registration for instance) that frustrated a lot of people, but rest assured, we've already begun talking about how to fix these issues for next year. In any case, it seems that for the most part whatever problems we had were overshadowed by how much fun that just about everyone had once they got in. I was surprised by how many times people stopped me during the convention to tell me what a blast they were having at the convention. Cheyne from the Black Crystals set the record, I think, by telling me about half a dozen times throughout the convention how great he thought the con was.
I myself, in spite of being over-worked, spread-thin, stressed, and exhausted, had a good time when I had time to stop running back and forth. Dionna, my wife and vice-chair, had somewhat less fun, as she was somewhat sick during the convention and had to deal with my stress on top of her own. Lapis, our daughter and chibi-chair, had a blast and we had a hard time getting her to go to bed at anything approaching a reasonable hour all convention long.
Now we get to rest, though, and I get to take off the convention chair hat and hand it over to Hector (Keichiokami). I will still be around though, so I hope to see you all there.

I had a lot of fun at Conji. Never had my picture taken so many times. x3 Made my day when I got asked for solo pictures since my characters were almost dependant on my counterpart.

My only complaint The karaoke. It was more geared to the older fans because there wasn't anything that recent. My only options for things I knew were stuff from yugioh, the Pokemon thing, and Hikari, none of which I can sing very well. I was also dissapointed that I missed the karaoke contest. Being a competitive singer, I really would have enjoyed being there. There was no information on your site reguarding the contest, so I had no idea there even was one until I came on saturday and saw the schedule for friday. Maybe next year you can add some vocaloid, soul eater, or bleach songs? I know the karaoke for them exists because I have it. x3 I should bring my own CD's next time.

Pictures! I was Orange Jumpsuit Ken on Saturday with a Chrome and Chikusa. On Sunday, I was Dead Master (black dress and horns) with a Black Rock SHooter (twin tails and bikini) and an Ouran person (she was called a Hunny, Tamaki, and a Hitachiin throughout the day) There was one point when I walked into her picture and bombed her. I want that one most of all. x3 Let me know if you have pictures of us. plzkthx?

XD i was working with ken on getting the karaoke songs and stuff together, but there were issues, i had collected over 170 different tracks for him, but my computer would not let me burn them, zip them or send them, so he had to gather them at the last minute and was most likely unable to get enough. we will work on that next year, and it will be better!

I have a few of your group from up on the parking garage that I still need to edit - should be within the next couple days! I think I have a group shot of you guys up now on my account here or my Flickr stream (http://www.flickr.com/mikerollerson)). I ended up with over 3500 shots from the weekend, so it might take a little while to get to all of them!

I know I also have some of DreamyDemon (both you and the girl you came with) in those costumes and at the ball (and some of Master Chief at the ball). If you see any photos of yourselves that you like in my account, feel free to use them. I'd also be happy to email the full resolution files if you want them!

Side note: If you see yourself (or can help identify) anyone in my photos, please let me know! I'd love to make sure everyone gets credit.

Yes, I was dozing -- I fell asleep out there, because I knew I could. I could doze off, and it wouldn't make a difference to the convention or anyone attending it.

Lapis had a blast and we had a hard time getting her to go to bed at anything approaching a reasonable hour all convention long...

Well, I'm bit shy so I'm not sure about saying hi to strangers. It would feel strange for me if I say hi to someone that I have seen around on forum. However, I'll be sure to say hi to you when I hit up Oceanside picnic.

My only complaint The karaoke. It was more geared to the older fans because there wasn't anything that recent. My only options for things I knew were stuff from yugioh, the Pokemon thing, and Hikari, none of which I can sing very well. I was also dissapointed that I missed the karaoke contest. Being a competitive singer, I really would have enjoyed being there. There was no information on your site reguarding the contest, so I had no idea there even was one until I came on saturday and saw the schedule for friday. Maybe next year you can add some vocaloid, soul eater, or bleach songs? I know the karaoke for them exists because I have it. x3 I should bring my own CD's next time.

*laughs*

There wasn't any karaoke :) Our Crew brought our portable system and the mp3s we had (lots, but our collection ends in 2006) just as an afterthought, and the staff was kind enough to rig a makeshift karaoke room. We were lucky to have *any* karaoke this year. Next year, we'll have a current collection as we have been asked to officially help out.

Bringing your own CDs is a very good idea. Our system can easily accommodate anything fans bring in. That's how we played Lady Gaga, for instance.

BTW, I was Hughes. Any pictures? :)

Wait a minute, didn't I stand next to you in line in breakfast? I'm the one with glasses and short black hair. I had black t-shirt on and I made a gesture to you about your balloon flower.

That was me -- and that flower is a little smaller now but still somewhat intact :toothy:

I know what you mean, I saw Chaz but was too shy to say hi, haha.

Yeah, see, I don't get that. Usually the whole reason I go to conventions is to talk to people. (Often, to talk about our convention in January.)

I guess it makes a difference whether I'm sitting behind a table, or wandering around all day.

Ahh that's amazing! I was the girl in red (Reimu from Touhou) that kept waving at you everytime I saw you at the con on Saturday, and you introduced your Elisa-chan to me in the karoake room! I didn't get any photos, but I found some just now here (http://traditionallymodernphotography.webs.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=8721052)

I was Magnet Miku (with my friend who was Luka) on Friday and Reimu from Touhou (with Marisa) on Saturday [there were 3 Reimus that day...I was the female asian one xD]. If anyone has pictures, that'd be great!

Yes, I was dozing -- I fell asleep out there, because I knew I could. I could doze off, and it wouldn't make a difference to the convention or anyone attending it.


Hey, I'm not judging :toothy:. I just like that picture...

tipsd9video, Saru-Chan, QuietKodama, Miasmatte (and luka -- if you have her Cosplay.com account or any other info to credit her as, let me know! Same goes for any other photos), I just uploaded a couple photos of you both: http://www.MikeRollerson.com

DreamyDemon - I added one of the girl you were with (vampire outfit?), and have some more of you both (link outfit) that I'm hoping to get to later tonight!

I'll eventually try to get them all on to my Cosplay.com account -- if anyone would like the full-sized versions, send me an email at Mike@MikeRollerson.com

Thanks!

Hi. I was Dark Link on Friday afternoon and Saturday and I was wondering if anyone had pictures.
Also, if anyone has pictures from the Gothic Vampire Ball/dance/rave thing I'd love to see them.

i definitely remember running into you ^_^ but sadly i had no working camera that day DX

I've been looking through all the galleries/links posted up here. There are great shots! Thank you who brought cameras to capture the memories as people like me sat around regretting leaving ours at home.

I went all three days. Do any of you have pictures of me as Professor Hojo (Final Fantasy VII)? I found one.

@Vinushka You should have told me, I totally would have let you steal them. I'm afraid you would have returned them in less than an hour! LOL I <3 Sebastian!

@BakaUsagiChan I did recognize you as Ciel! My daughter did too. She thought you were so gorgeous in your dress. I wasn't even going to try explaing the girl as a guy as a girl thing! hehe

@jambreaker Thank you SO much!! It really was cool to win. I'm gonna frame the certificates and display them proudly! lol

@shichikou Great pic of the kids! I really like it. Thanks so much for sharing it. <3



Thanks again for the kind words about the kids and their cosplay!! It was so much fun.

Just like Aura-chan said. Next year will be different, totally. It was kind of unexpected though b/c I didn't know that we were going to do a karaoke thing that day, but expect more songs next year...(The video of my singing Mulan still burns in my mind)

Went to Anime Conji this past weekend. First anime convention here in sunny San Diego, and the first year for it. As I always do, I went to take pics and record video.

You can get to the pics by going here:

As always if you are a cosplayer and want bigger pics and/or RAW pics, just email me, and I will make them available.

I'd be interested to see it. My pictures are here: http://www.boston-baden.com/hazel/Pix/2010/pix7628.htm but of course I didn't take any pictures while I was napping.

It's just that I didn't really talk to you on here and I wasn't sure if you'd recognize me, sorry haha.

Well, I have trouble memorizing names and faces anyway. The wigs throw me off. But I'm always interested in meeting people and talking.

Thanks for posting these! I put in some info in a few that have me as Suikotsu from InuYasha -- I really do appreciate seeing these -- now each of my three cosplays from Anime Conji have been in a couple photos across all the myriad of gallery postings. :toothy:

I think I was known for carrying around parasols or an umbrella with me during the con. I would like to know if anyone has photos of me from the weekend. Plus I wore the same silver wig every day except for Sunday.

On Friday I was wearing a lot of pink and black as I carried around a pink parasol, making it really hard to miss me.

On Saturday, I wore a red Chinese dress with a brownish and red parasol.

Later on during the day on Saturday I wore a red and black dress, with a mesh top thing. Also I wore a top hat and I had a black umbrella with me.

If anyone has pictures, I would gladly like to have them.

Please and thank you!

I just gotta say, you guys put on quite the convention this year! Congrats on getting upgraded to the Town&Country for next year too! I had the msot fun I've had ina very long time, and consider me locked in for attendance next year. <3
Onto picture begging time. xD
I was Aerith Gainsborough from Final Fantasy VII on Saturday. I can easily be distinguished by the Final Fantasy Gathering, a rather out-of-chracter Starfleet Engineering badge...and an embarassing smile. ^-^;;
