Since this thread is kinda dead :(

What's everyone planning for AniZona3?
It's a bigger con... and actually gonna be moved to a convention center rather then the Embassy Suits! :D

Any cosplay ideas or who do you hope to see there from previous cons?
And who's attending Phoenix Cactus ComicCon, Phoenix Anime Festivel and Dark Con?

Tenucha

Well this is an actual convention center... Which is awesome! I never been there but there maybe the COn Suits again and an open bar... however I never took advantage of the bar either time before lol.

You got an idea of your future cosplay?

- Sana Kurata (Kodomo no Omocha)
- Pink Power Ranger (Original series)

and another Final Fantasy swimsuit girl and a J-pop costume =o I hope anyways. Will probably change my mind as usual! XD
And Pajama Aeris if I get together a FF/KH PJ group, which would be fun! ^^

Yes I realize that's more than I will have time/energy to put together >.< I want to do them all though. D:

That's more then I got planned!! lol
I just have Chris Redfield set. (part of a group with the female Vash and Wolfwood you may have seen at AniZona2... if not ther ein my gallery :P)
I'll probably bring back Spike 'cus that's a fun cosplay.
Depending on how my cosplay goes at Expo will probably if/when I wear 'em to AniZona.

I'd actually like to get my original Black Mage design going for next year....

05-18-2006, 12:59 PM
My sister and I (the twin Bleach shinigami) will be at Anizona3, hands down. Going to switch from the random shinigami thing to actual characters though. I am thinking something along the lines of Unohana Retsu myself.

Bringing my little brother along too and he's either going to be Luffy from Onepiece or Shippo from Inuyasha. He hasn't decided which yet because he's not sure if he wants to dye his hair or wear a wig. He better decide soon though or I won't be able to wrangle the costume before school starts again. :)

well lets see...Im gonna be working as staff again so yeah...I'll be there and lets see what else?... Oh I'll be at Pheonix comicon (staff) and Pheonix anime fest (staff) and as for ani 3 yes we will be at the convention center and we will be staying at the marriot...which is the same for pcc...

as for costumes...
Xion - Bloody Roar
Tri-Edge- .Hack//Roots and G.U
Kratos - Tales of Symphoina

Tenucha
05-20-2006, 12:55 PM
Ya I'm kinda staff if not volenteer at Phoenix ComiCon.
I'm gonna call myself staff for now 'cus it sounds cool lol.
I'm with the Hobbyist group. i know I'll be doing somethign involving the console game room becasue thats the section I'm a MOD for on the Hobbyist site (Console gaming)

Phoenix Anime Fest looks neat. THe website looks very nice but I havn't been there in a while. MarkRox sent me the link.
I'm still so amazed at how many anime cons are in AZ all of a sudden! :o!

I'm still sorting out cosplay (especially when Expo is right aroudn the corner)... But I'm thinking
-Vash or Spike Spiegel
-Chris Redfield (default or alternitive)
-Custom Black Mage design

Right now I think it's important to know what you wanna do for next year allready so there's a better change and planning it and getting it ready before it becomes last minute

I deffintly know Vash will be doen after this Expo. I'll probably wear it again at ComicCon 'cus I'm sure that, for starters, the jacket will be fun to wear, and Johnny is a guest of honor there also (We are gonna try and get him to the Trigun Gathering at Expo)
Spike's been done for lasy year and so far aI have worn him every day for Anime Expo and AniZona 2.

Chris is saposed to be ready for Dark Con becasue I'm in a 'lil Resident Evil group.

Black Mage woul dbe awesome but I'm thinking about it.

I also got people demanding I cosplay Leon and Wesker (Resident Evil), Dante (Devil May Cry), and Arucard (Hellsing... assuming it doesnt get done in time for this Expo)

Dunno yet. Will definately bring Kankurou again. I'll definately have more than one this year.

Me and my good buddy seem to have some problem with cosplaying people that anybody actually recognizes: We were Kotetsu and Izumo at AniZona2, and we're thinking of dabbling into the Violinist of Hamelin fandom for AniZona3.

This time we're planning on doing more than one costume each, though. We'll probably think up some other Naruto duo again. =3

Tenucha
06-05-2006, 10:44 PM
Never even heard of those series/characters :P
Then again i dont watch naruto hehe.

Ya I got a couple upcoming cosplay that have the potential of NOT being reconized ><;

Ah! I loved you guys. I got some good pics of ya too! Eh, I wouldn't worry about characters no one but fans recognize.. those are the best in my opinion cause then you get to meet some cool people. On the other hand, getting no pictures taken is kinda lame in a way.

I plan to consider going. Of course, if this one is going to be guestless like last year, i might not bother. If I do, I'll plan on bringing my Iroh costume.

Kazukii
06-08-2006, 11:11 PM
- Kimimaro (Naruto)
- Kiba (For a friend)
- Mana (Bloody Roar)
- Kadaj (Having a group with this.)
- Jin (Samurai Champloo) - Maybe
- Secret costume x3 (It'll be a nice surprise to Naruto fans)- Already working on. :angel2:
And seeing how many people liked my Kuro, I might bring that along. :toothy:

Most of those costumes are pretty basic, so I'm sure I can whip them all up before Anizona. -nod nod-

Guestless? What do you mean?!
We had some great guests!
This year it's gonna be held at the Mesa Convention Center rather then that hotel. The guest from last year/this year (AniZona 2) want to come back becasuse they had a great time... and there working on getting actual Jrock back and more guests of course

ApolloNoUta
06-16-2006, 10:57 AM
I will hopefully go as Wolfwood, Chibodee Crocket, and perhaps.... *looks at first post on page 2* Perhaps Flute, if my hair gets long enough. (And if I actually get to watch VoH...)

-楓弥-
06-17-2006, 02:20 AM
I'm thinking about whether or not I should do more Jrock this year.
Since everyone at the con is more anime than Jrock. xDDD
I can give it a try and see if anyone reconizes though.

Kuroda Michihiro [Wish Matrix] >> Iceman
Monkey D. Luffy [Davy Back Fight] >> One Piece
Aoi [Relia] >> Gazette*
*Will probably change later

Mmm...yep. I threw in some One Piece. Because everyone loves One Piece.

:eek: I'm planning on going and it will be my first con. I'm nervous and excited. I'm planning on going as sephiroth (yes I know that there is alot). Can anyone tell me what to expect?

Tenucha
06-20-2006, 02:38 AM
It's hard to say.
AniZona 3 has a larger cap and is at a large rlace (Mesa Convention Center vs. hotel)

If it were anything like the last 2... I'd say expect alot of Industry Panels... VA panels a fair amounf of cosplayers (seems like more are not in cosplay) and the unorganization of the group.

However AniZona3 sounds much bigger... not just in cap limit... so it's hard to say.
They are aiming for real arcade machines, J Rock band, and more to offer and so on

Grey Finch
06-22-2006, 03:57 AM
Well, I'll definitely be going as Wolfwood and dragging my Vash friend to the Phoenix Comic-Con (to show my appreciation when Johnny's there! :D)

As for AniZona3, I have no idea who I'll be going as (but I'm definitely not gonna miss it this year!) I'm thinking maybe Dark Link, Mugen, or a Samurai Nobody from KH2. It all depends on how busy I'll be/how much time I'll have.

Icaruspunk
06-23-2006, 09:22 PM
It sounds like it will be a lot of chotic fun. ROCK ON!!! I'm going even if I have to hitchhike. I guess I'll see you all there!

06-27-2006, 01:30 PM
Oh wow, AniZona III is going to be at the Mesa Convention center?

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT WE HAD A CONVENTION CENTER. *slaps things*

That makes things SO MUCH easier for me. I don't even have to get a hotel. I live like a mile from it. xDDD

Tenucha
06-27-2006, 10:24 PM
:(
Ya I live, like, 5min away from where AniZona2 was! VERY easy! That 5min was spent on the freeway 'cus I live right off of it! lol

Ya... Mesa Con. Center might be a 'lil far from me :S Not all that sure

07-14-2006, 04:31 PM
next years anizona 3 is going to be prettty close to where i live. i might actually go as Conrad from Kyou Kara Maou this time, i meant to to as Conrad at AX, but decided not to.

ZERO//.2K
07-19-2006, 12:31 AM
Here's my list:

Chances are I'll be staff for karaoke again at AZ3. AniZona's a bit of a sentimental thing for me due to the hard work it took as committee during AZ1. =)

The Mesa Convention Center is pretty spacious. It's right near the Mesa Community College if anyone's been there before. The Otaku University Conference will also be held there (and we're so excited!), so a lot of people are going to get pretty familiar with the place. Maybe some day either AZ, PAF, PCC, or OU will take on the Civic Center in Phoenix. (Yay to wishful thinking!)

Tenucha
07-21-2006, 03:31 AM
I go to the Glendale Community College...
But was looking into attending Mesa. I'll have to use that as a landmark and check maps again haha. :)

Otaku University sounds SOO amazing and promising

As long as there's a goriwng audence then the cons need to move to bigger locations.
I know of AniZona and Phoenix Cactus ComiCon... what are the others listed?

Elvy
07-21-2006, 08:37 AM
The Civic Center would be the next logistical choice when growing bigger I'm guessing. LOL

AZ = AniZona
PAF = Phoenix Anime Fest
PCC = Phoenix Comic Con
OU = Otaku University

Then there's Dark Con and the others, but they aren't exactly anime-exclusive (well..neither is PCC technically) and have been around the block for a while. :geek:

Tenucha
07-21-2006, 12:09 PM
OOoohh ok.
I'm still not sure about Anime Fest... ANd it's not even liste donthis site yet o_0
.

I am going to AniZone 3 and I'm staff for ComiCon.
I'm really looking foward to Otaku University and I'm still debating about Dark Con.

Wow... I remember back a few years ago when there was no Anime stuff going on at all in AZ... Now lookit all these events X_X

Elvy
07-21-2006, 04:11 PM
You should stop by Taiko on Ray and Cooper tomorrow around noon if you're interested in OU and any staffing possibilities. We're doing our first meet-n-greet tomorrow to see if we can't more people to add to the committee ranks and all.

Yeah, before '05 there wasn't too much going on in the anime event area for Arizona. Then after AniZona that all changed. LOL Amazing, isn't it?

Technically there are still a lot of game, sci-fi, and comic conventions in AZ...gotta give them props where it's due.

07-21-2006, 10:34 PM
Phoenix Cactus ComiCon is coming up Setpember 23 and 24 at Mesa Convention Center.

Otaku University, thou not an actual CONVENTION is Sept. 28-30 at Mesa Convention Center and Marriot Hotel Mesa

Phoenix Anime Fest is in December 1-3 Wyndham Phoenix Hotel
Dark Con is in January 4-7 at Embassy Suits off the 1-17 and Greenway.

AniZona 3 is during Easter Weekend and this year the'll be at Mesa Convention Center.

Also, Atomic Comics usually holds some kind of cosplay event once a month or so so I would check them out also.

Your friend should sign up to http://www.hobbyistsparadise.com/ (especially if she wants some friends) as we try to stay up to date with the conventions as well as hosting our own gatheirngs and such.

I finally drove out into the general area the other night for the Mesa Atomic Comics Anime Fest cosplay contest.
I really thought it would be a 'lil further away or something.

This past year was my first year cosplaying. I was Advent Children Cloud in the masquerade with Aeris and Zack. ^_^

This year I going as the following:

Momiji Sohma- Fruits Basket
Utena Tenjou(part of group cosplay)- Revolutionary Girl Utena
Alexia Ashford- Resident Evil: Code Veronica
MAYBE Zidane Tribal- Final Fantasy IX

Hope they all come out well. Good luck to everyone else!

Tenucha
08-02-2006, 08:38 PM
OHH awesome!! Alexia Ashford?!!

You should check out the AniZona fourms as well http://www.anizona.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1030

I'm trying to organize a Resident Evil gathering at AniZona.
I'll be there as either Billy Coen or Chris Redfield... whichever is easiest to pull off or closest to complition.

IF the cosplay does happen we should have an Ashley and Leon (RE4), Claire Redfield, Barry Burton and Ada.
Two of my friends for Cali may show up also and if so we'll have another Claire and a Cindy Lennox (Outbreak).... MAYBE a Carlos Olivera (Nemesis) if he comes with the girls...

Tenucha
08-14-2006, 12:46 AM

Do you have pics of Cloud and Areith? Since there are, like, half a dozen people cosplaying that couple :P
And who's Deep Dive Riku?

08-14-2006, 08:47 AM

I know there might be a Naruto cosplay gathering as well, since a few people have already decided about going to do Naruto characters, and we've been getting a rather decent group going. :3

Um, Anizona isn't going to be happening on Thursday...well. Atleast nothing really great or anything. You just go to pick up your badges, and probably stay for some movie previews like they had last year. But that's about it. =/

The con itself starts up on Friday, and Saturday is the biggest day, so glad you could make it to that one. It's cosplay day hehe.

ACK! i have to make costumes...i still need to make my friend orgy and cloud costumes and finish my aerith costume! AHH. haha jk. but i do need to get to work...hmmm

I'm having a hard time choosing what costumes to wear though. I kinda wanted to go in a big group or just find people wearing something from the same series and meet with them... Buuut it's far enough away that I could probably make a new costume too. Does anyone have any suggestions? <3

I'll see if I can make it to AniZona since I'll probably be living in AZ around that time [hopefully].

Maybe I'll even have a costume or money!

But really, I'd have to choose between Fanime or AniZona.

I'm broke. :D

Grey Finch
09-01-2006, 04:26 PM
XD Yes, I do have a Wolfie. I'm sure I'll probably end up wearing that for one of the days, but I dunno which one. If you were planning to go as Kuroneko though, I would definitely have to. >D

This'll be my first year going to Anizona though. Is it really crowded? (IE, will I have to worry about hitting people with the big cross? x_x)

Kazukii
09-01-2006, 05:23 PM
xD woot! pics! And yeah, I'll most likely bring my Kuro, people loved it, so kinda gotta please em xD

Anizona at the hotels wasn't that bad. I mean, if you go out in the open and whatnot, it really wasn't that crowded. It's only when you got to the vending rooms and around the tent area was it kinda crowded. But I'm sure the cross won't be an issue. I had a friend do Wolfie last year, and we carried around his cross for him and it worked decently. ^^;

Grey Finch
09-01-2006, 05:43 PM
Sweet >D Then I'll plan to go as Wolfwood on one of the days. I can try and bring my friend to go as Vash too, if he stops being lazy and starts repairing the coat... (one of the pieces got lost >_>)

Kazukii
09-01-2006, 06:35 PM
Yay!
Inform me of which day, so I can wander around in it on that one, since by then I'll have a few more costumes to wear there. ^^;

Yeeah, I had to give him kind of a strange look when he told me. How do you lose the entire front of your coat? XD Oh well. Yes, I will keep you posted on the Wolfwood plan. >D

I'm kind of hoping my Pip Bernadette and Mugen costumes will be done by then too (I'm pretty sure Mugen will, but Pip is a big "eeeh"). I might be able to bugger my friend into being Jin, but we'll see. It'd just mean more work for me though u_u I'm the one who sews.

Anizona at the hotels wasn't that bad. I mean, if you go out in the open and whatnot, it really wasn't that crowded. It's only when you got to the vending rooms and around the tent area was it kinda crowded. But I'm sure the cross won't be an issue. I had a friend do Wolfie last year, and we carried around his cross for him and it worked decently. ^^;

Ya AniZona 1 and 2 was fortunate to have a mostly out door convention.
I say mostly fortuante becasue this is Arizona and it gets HOT... FAST!!
Today it reached atleast 120 by the time I got off work around 3.

Ya I ended up carrying Nerdgirlx's Wolfwood cross for a bit... what pissed her off more was that people were taking pics of me with it (there's one pic of it in my AniZona 2 gallery).. the worst case was that people thought I was Wolfwood.... WTF?!!

That's funny becasue I'm trying to plan both Mugen AND Jin for myself! XD
Mugen's a pain to plan becasue of his unique sword and those wooden sandles... I have a size 16 foot. Ya right am I gonna be able to buy a pair!

Grey Finch
09-02-2006, 10:46 PM

09-03-2006, 12:07 AM
haha.
I actually have a friend here in AZ who should be able to make me a pair and include something that looks like metal on the bottom... the swords, on the other hand, I'll have to look elsewhere.
I'm not sure how I'd be able to make that myself :(

And Jin has 2 swords... ><;
I could probably just buy a couple swords... But I know there are 'lil design details on those as well... grr

Grey Finch
09-03-2006, 12:40 AM
Oh, that's good :D I got a pair of geta at that House of Rice store in Scottsdale, and they fit pretty well. I dunno what I'm gonna do about the metal bottoms though, but I'll figure something out in time.

Yeah, I'm kinda wondering how I'm gonna do my sword too. I was thinking of just using the pink insulating foam technique because I actually know how to do that XD I'm afraid it would break though if I started hitting things with it.

Must learn self control by Anizona3. XD;

For someone like me... What are a size of Geta that I could maybe look into?
I normally wear a size 15 or 16 (depending on cut).

These all seem to be measured in In. rather then feet.

Grey Finch
09-10-2006, 10:29 PM
Hmm. Well, a size 15 is 12.31 inches, and House of Rice only sells 9 1/2 and 10 inches... so other than suggesting to make them (or get someone else to as you mentioned earlier ;D) you could try this place: http://www.karankoron.com/online_shop_top.html

Although I think it's more pricey than House of Rice. Hope that helped some. ^^

So have you been to one or know anyone who has been to one? I would wanna go just to see who from the festival shows up and why. Drinking isn't a big issue to me but I do know the hotels policy on it so I can see why someone would get kicked out, just hope they don't get banned from the con or anything lame like that. Shutting the party down would be fair enough.

I know others who go, yes, but I'm not supplying party-goers or anything. Since this is a con for all age groups, and littler kids and whatnot shouldn't have to be in the same area with drunks. It's annoying. I just hope next year they kick them out. :sulk:

The convention grounds look pretty good, so I believe that a few locations that I looked over are going to be packed with cosplayers for photo's and more. area's are a fountain like pound near the pool. A nice X shaped, how should i put it, this is an X shape like spot that has stairs leading up from all four parts up to a sit or stand photo area. Next to that there are many grass spots and even a nice little open area for photos near by. The inside is a bit cramped but none the less easy to find people and great to get entry to locations need to get to. This info though is only from eyes on and talked with the hotel vip director, sure it was a different title but, and she gave me enough info to pretty much say this will be a nice spot, not a great spot for the con, but a nice spot to see it at for now.

Here are my pics from Phoenix Cactus ComiCon (PCC).
http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v180/ToshiMustgrind/ComiCon/

This is for
1) Those of you who went to PCC to see another attendee (well... volenteer) gallery and look for yourself... despite it not being AniZona
2) Getting a look around at some of the locations offered for photogrpahy.

There are quit a few places around the center that will work very nicely for photoshoot spots...
Unfortuantly I sill feel Mesa Con. Center is way to small especially if AniZona is moving from that resort to this larger location...

I am kinda late considering this was towards the end of September... However I figured these pics might help out a 'lil bit in looking at some of the locations.
I still need to resize these images and upload them to my Cosplay.com gallery

BlackDelo: For your drinking enjoyment, There is an open bar at what would probably be the host hotel. There's also an actual bar right outside from the front doors of the host hotel. Neither one I went to 'cus I was too busy trying to not fall asleep while working on an empty stomach XD

This isn't really an idea, more like a question. For the previous Anizona, the masquerade was held outside, in a big tent, with the audience infront of the stage, and the contestants to the right. Is this going to be generally the same for the next one? It's a bit disappointing to have it like that..for I feel that the audience will be more 'wowed' and surprised if the contestants weren't in view until they actually came on stage. :/

Good questions,

Currently i have gone over many things and also agree to all this. I will be running it all in a new format, new types of awards, honorable awards, new area means new location for masq., plus a back area for masq. meet up and prep area.

This masq. will be held in a room this time, not outside. Also There is a set number of how many are allowed in the room so i will unfortunately have to make video masq. room so that those who cant be there to watch it can watch a live feed of it in action. Location for that will be add later.

I will have new types of rules but they will fallow some if not near all of the old ones.

i will let you all know this one rule though for now till i set up a general thread for everyone to read.

For those who wish to enter the masq. note, you do not have to hold back on wearing your outfit for the masq. If you have an outfit for a gathering but it is before masq. you are able to wear said outfit and still enter the masq.

I have seen to many problems of people in the past who have been told at cons to not wear your outfits before masq. and miss out on many events.

Also i guess i might as well add this, for weapons and props for masq. There will be a change and i will tell all of you do not worry about any props that are unable to be used in past cons.

please before jumping for joy, locate the thread on a quick info on masq. rulings on this.

Thank you, anymore questions please PM me.

Do you know the max. capacity of the room? And is there standing room after?

Past AniZona cons or past cons in general... 'cus I know Anime Expo has a very strict weapons policy... and I know we dont, so much... especially when in Arizona it is legel for you to carry a weapon in the open to my knowledge (It's not like I practice and excersise this :P)

Wow I can't believe I've never thought of that. =o I mean as an entrant I want to see the show but that's very true, it doesn't surprise the audience the same way. I guess having us in a backroom with a video showing the show back there is the best way (like they have at Anime Expo's masq.) but still it isn't the same sadly, since you can hardly hear and sometimes can't see. ::debates::

Right now I'm thinking for new costumes:

Shinku from Rozen Maiden
Red & white gingham strawberry lolita (for the Lolita Tea Party (http://www.anizona.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1315))
and Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura in her pink PJs (for the Pajama Gathering (http://www.anizona.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1163&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0))

Well, I'm planning to bring my Rau Le Creuset ("Gundam Seed") costume even though I already used it at the Phoenix Comicon... and I'm also planning to bring my Larva ("Vampire Princess Miyu") costume which I have not used yet.
As for a third choice... haven't decided yet... Depends on if I have a new costume come AniZona3 or if I decide to participate in a gathering of some sort... I hear there's a CLAMP gathering being planned, so I might bring my Yue ("Cardcaptor Sakura" AKA "Cardcaptors") costume along... but it might not be worth it if there are no Cardcaptor Sakura cosplayers...

I would check with the AniZona fourms if I were you... there seems to be more planning and activity there then here...
However it's still good thing this site has a subfourm for this con!

I'm soo excited to, this is going to be my first con, although I've been to several non-con cosplay events. I'm definately going as Tifa from Advent Children, with my friend as cloud and his buster sword, and we'll also be going as Fuu and Jin, with yet another friend as Mugen. All of which appear to be rather popular characters this year, oh well.

Hey, I remember seeing you guys at Matsuri! =D Good to know you guys are coming to Ani this year!

I revised my list a little bit. I think this is more accurate.

Thursday: James / Wolfwood
Friday: Urahara Kisuke
Saturday: Cid Highwind
Sunday: Pip Bernadette

Lookin' forward to this con! xD

That would be the coolest thing ever, I can't even think of a good comparison for how cool that would be. The only thing cooler would be if I magically grew a foot and a half before con.

Life's being weird at me again.....so weird that I had to shave my list of outfits this year, sadly. Now, the only outfits I'm going to do are Orihime from Bleach and a random Turk that I still havent named yet. Simple n' spiffy is my plan for this year! XD

Since I don't really have a group for this con, I'm thinking about bringing a few cosplays that haven't seen the light of day XD

Question, is there a gathering for Gundam SEED? Because I'm bringing Athrun Zala (Alex Dino) and would love to see a Kira or Lacus.

Other stuff I'm bringing are obscure cosplays (beside Kyouya from Ouran and Fuji from Prince of Tennis), so I'm sure no one really heard of them ^^ … Unless I can finish Ky Kisuke in time >_>

Ya, it's true.. and crappy.
They were advertising it as a 4 day con also.
Technically AX is a 5 day con then... there's Day 0 and then the 4 con days... but they only advertise the 4 days the con runs.

I was excited up until I just realized Thursday is a early badge pick up

We'll make the most of it and hang out. You could come out and dine with us or do something of the sort *shrug* But finishing touches is a good thing too...

By "we" I mean Cira, Krystel and Armand haha. Not a full HP thing.

Saturday - Shinku from Rozen Maiden and I will have Hina Ichigo with me! :D
Sunday - I'm cosplaying Utena again to cosplay with Tako's new Miki! :D So if you guys see a big pink blob again that's me! XD

Ya isn't that cool?
They were advertising 5th-8th yet the 5th is a Day 0... which doesn't make sence.
Last year Anime Expo was 1st-4th with a Day 0 the night before... 'ya know... thats where the zero comes from.

AniZona was falsly advertising there weekend. Until a schedule is released... that's how it appears to be. Who know ther emight be a few other things going on besides anime viewing rooms and the game rooms....

Becasue I know a few people on staff... I know that how things are being handled is becasue of the venue.
Mesa Convention Center have been asses to the Phoenix Cactus ComiCon guys and now AniZona.
I live in state and it's very upsetting for me also...
Its badass your guys in SoCal are coming in!!
Ya we arn't staying in the main hotel either for a first... BUt we also thought it was a 4 day con so we are staying a night in a hotel when we can be staying in our own rooms.
I guess it still kinda works out... we'll atleast be on site when it opens...

haha and you are very welcome!
Ya just come in on that day but dont be in a rush... apparently you cna pick up badges at 5 and then basic things are open like gaming and so on...

A 20-some hour bus ride is kinda boring but well worth it to see all of my friends. I'm veiwing room staff this year and I think I'll be working it thursday night/friday morning so stop by and say hi.

No cosplay for me sadly I ran out of time and money. Though if I get a red chinese style top and black slip-ons I might do a ghetto female Ranma.

Well, I was planning to bring my Larva ("Vampire Princess Miyu") costume to AniZona, but truth be told I haven't seen that anime yet. I'd like to see it before I use that costume so I can get a feel for the character. A friend of mine was going to make me a copy of that show, but he hasn't gotten around to that yet.
So, final plan: Yue ("Cardcaptor Sakura" AKA "Cardcaptors") on Friday and Rau Le Creuset ("Gundam Seed") on Saturday. I'll just be plain 'ol me on Sunday.
