One of my fondest memories is being asked to do a skit and it was my very first one. :)

I started going to Animazement to meet Yuu Watase - with the added bonus of meeting the other nuts on the the Fushigi Yuugi mailing list.

Some favorite moments:

1999 - First year meeting Watase, FYMLers bring her box of gifts
Watching Watase laugh over our stuff was great, also highlight was getting her to sign my favorite Nuriko cel. She then surprised showed up at FYML meeting

2000 - co-host my first panel while scaried silly - make it out alive
http://www.fansview.com/2000a/031100a.htm

Also riding elevator while wearing rarer Nuriko outfit and Watase also on same elevator and happily recognizing costume

Also remember Watase stopping panel discussion too 'Ooh, Ah' over Heather's Tama-neko. She was done in by the cuteness

2001

Watase showing up to another FYML meeting & who among the FYML could forget Suzaku on a stick. Meeting other cel collectors in con suite

2002

Cel collectors pizza party (adding link now, as site was down yesterday)

My favorite memory... oh man! I loved it all! From last year it was meeting my dear online friend Jesika for the first time in person. This year is gonna be even better because we're more comfortable around each other and we're going to throw MADDD hotel room parties and go CRAZY. XD But anyway. Last year was also cool because after I did karaoke (did anybody go to that!?!!!!) and afterwards, this ADORABLE Shuuichi cosplayer guy came up to me and gushed about how great I was and it was so... lovely. XD

MistressChi
02-08-2003, 08:56 AM
Ooo, you did Karaoke!? Awesome. I'm doing that this year, but I'm kind of having second thoughts about it. I'm afaraid I'll mess up...infront of all those people X.x;

There had better be parties, cuz it has been mighty quiet last year, since Pope Hentai's party was shut down in 2001.

Hikaruchan
02-09-2003, 12:29 AM
I think the hotel is pretty anti-party. When we had the cel collectors party, we told the room number by word of mouth. Hotel was shutting any parties down 2 years ago that they found flyers for - so think most gathering was by word of mouth last year. I think as long as you aren't making a lot of noise, then should be able to have group meetings in rooms.

Ranma Saotome
02-09-2003, 12:42 AM
Man, we ended up having a pool party with Pope Hentai. XD

What sucked was the fact that there was some nut job from Brooklyn there spouting about Bukakkecon 2004. We all just wanted to punt him! >.<

My fav memory was someone saying a made the perfect-est Ed ever ^_^ Ad the fact people would bow to me for giving away pocky. Much fun.
Also, i think the shuuichi cosplayer was my best friend Cory. That sounds like something he would do and he was wearing that costume..so who knows...

jana~! *tackle* :D

yes, last year was amazing. it was my first convention ever, and i'm glad it went over so well! my best memories are:

-when my parents parked the car, i was like, "eh, this is it?" then i saw the "all your base are belong to us" sign & i knew i had arrived.
-first going into the hotel and just gawking at the cosplayers :D
-one of the animazement people taking my first ever cosplay picture! and then, of course, the other million who took the rest :3
-seeing jana, in the flesh, for the first time ever(!)
-someone from a message board i used to post at walking up to
me in the dealer's room (i didn't remember her, but it was very cool nonetheless)
-recognizing random cosplayers/artwork/names from online *geeky swoon*
-crazy monkey hell & learning the wonder of heino!
-first setting eyes on the dealer's room. oh baby, oh baby, oh. :D
-watching anime with a bunch of other otaku in the video rooms

ah! i can't wait! well, actually, i can- i need to finish up my costumes/artwork first. :D this year, i plan to be so cool. i'm 80% sure that i'm doing karaoke (the attendees were so nice!). hopefully i can enter the ddr tourney, too. not to mention ubercosplay! overall, i can not wait. ee. X3

oh- kell. i saw you in the dealer's room line on sunday! utena outift, right? i wanted to talk to you (i like your artwork :3), but i'm shy.

fweepockygirl- yes! it was cory. XD jana just loved him. i was the (seemingly antisocial) one with him. i might have been boogiepop then, i don't know. :o you were going to the yaoi panel, right? or something like that? if i'm confused, sorry. XD

btw- if anyone saw a big purple boogiepop phantom on friday, it might have been me. ;3 i was the (young-looking?) one with the cardboard medals. d'oh. if you saw me, say hi! :D

Hikaruchan
02-15-2003, 07:14 PM
Well, I saw 2 Boogiepops. Catherine/Grandis was one, so assume you are the other. Pic I took is at http://www.icosplay.com/az/az2002p4.html if want to confirm,

I have been slacking off a bit on sewing, but just reset up my sewing area so can get something done this weekend.

j-chan

With the snow, I'll bet you got more than just 2 days. :D

Hikaruchan

Actually, we just got a bit of ice here, no snow. I did get some work done, can see I added 3 costumes in my costume database as in progress - Nuriko #2 and Lachesis #1 might be done for AZ.

Best memory of Animazment is meeting and getting Yuu Watase's autograph and a picture with her. *dies* That was so cool. :)

FweePockyGirl
02-19-2003, 12:26 PM

No yaoi panels for Bishies...i have enough yaoi friends to know everything i need to >.<

Ah lets see if I can even remember AZ,
My fondest memory was meeting so many cool people!
The biggest battle royal pillow fight ever! (the hotel staff had to come shut us down ^_^V)
Dealer room! and the Artshow are my two fav things! I totally missed AnimeHell but I did manage to stay up for some video game tourney i just so happen to walk in on.

Crazy Monkey Hell Night! XD

Ah! I missed Crazy Monkey Hell last year. I heard it was funny.
oh well, I am going to it this year. :)

AshleyV
02-23-2003, 11:58 AM
Don't worry Lovely I missed it as well. I can't miss it this year!
j-chan: I think I saw you that Friday cause I remember seeing a boogiepop phantom costume.

My favorite part about Animazement was meeting new people and having a great time enjoying the con in addition to getting Yuu Watase's autograph for myself and for my friend.

Okay!! I won't come kickin and screamin' We must not miss Crazy Monkey Hell Night. If I'm sleep wake my ass up and drag me down there with a big bottle of Dr. Pepper to keep me awake!!!

I have seen most of the hell night stuff several times, so I may wonder in and out depending on whether I have seen it too many times.

j-chan
02-23-2003, 08:44 PM
hikaruchan- do they play the same clips every year? or do they splice in new ones? of course i want to see heino again, as well as a few other things, but... hrm.

Hikaruchan
02-23-2003, 09:09 PM
They usually play a lot of the same clips over again with only a few added or rotated in/out. Since I have seen this stuff at AWA, AZ and Sugoi I have seen a good bit of this stuff over and over.

Ranma Saotome
02-23-2003, 10:15 PM
The only stuff that's mostly the same are the Corn Pone Flicks.

It's a medley of crazy anime, live action, oddball AMVs, and most imporantly Corn Porn Flicks, plus a touch of MST3K all rolled into 4 hours.

It's one of those evens where you you have to see it just to experience it. :D

Agh! FAVORITe memories!? It was just too fun to have a favorite! I went the past two years and had a ball. I was sad that I didn't get to know more people though.... I don't think anyone remembers me! WAAA~ OH well. I had a blast!
I always end up hanging out in the dealer room, losing track of time and missing the panels I wanted to go to. ... Being Yuna was good too- Yuu Watase wanted MY picture!!! That was so cool to me!

I only have 1 of 3 new outfits I really wanted to do completed. I was planning out the second one last night - probably will start cutting fabric for it tomorrow (have an anime club meeting tonight). Still have to find the right trim for the neckline, too.

I'm saving all my silver coins-- not spending ANY change I have and putting it all into a bag to let it add up outside my cash because for some reason-- I always end up spending the cash I save one way or another. Anyways, if you vow not to spend ANY change you just might find yourself with an extra ten bucks saved? HEh.....(that's just not $50 is it ?)

Sell hugs? I'll be your first customer! lol!:crylaugh:

Hikaruchan
04-25-2003, 09:51 AM
Actually, I have a canister for change by my door - so when I come in I can just dump it in. Since its about 3/4 full, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a good sum in it since a lot of that change is quarters (and pennies - blah).

Ranma Saotome

My best memory had to be from last year,

i was the only Tsuzuki Asato at the con and I think one a hand full of people recognized me and my fellow Yami people

That saturday night, I when to the dance with one of my best friends and we danced the night away

I was half asleep and acted and felt like I was drunk beyond belief...but I had so much fun. I remember I caught a nap during gravitation...

I was one happy shinigami that night... >^.^<

That, and the fact that that sunday I made $3.95 as wolfwood...
