I honestly can't trust myself to buy fabric online.. either through my own fault or theirs. Because I'm sure if I don't mess up.. they will!

What weapons does he have? I can't remember off the top of my head.
Yeah im thinking about it if to get a room or not. I'll see when the time comes.

As for Lloyd, he has his standard ones, flamberge and Vorpal blade or the eternal sword from TOS. In TOS2 he has a normal set and later a red and blue katanas that have a shining effect in them. I like all of them so its a difficult choice for me XD

This year flew by fast. I guess I am just waiting for Anime Matsuri now. It is literally the building right next to my work for the summer, so it will be nice to just walk over to the hotel.

I see a few people mentioning Anime Matsuri, anyone have any stories from it? I'm trying to make a 2013 line-up and would love to hear some pros, cons, and stories! ( Or any other Texas area cons, for that matter. )

Anime Matsuri is more of a game convention (due to the gaming tournaments they have), car showings and there are anime fans as well. Its pretty interesting and I do enjoy their cosplay shows.

I can't help but laugh at their choice for their name then, haha. But all good, I'm a fan of both games and anime so it works well for me.

It really isn't. Pretty much every convention has games and gaming tournaments (I've never been to one that didn't). AM tries to include as many aspects of Japanese culture as possible so that they can attract a larger amount of people. Hence why they have the gaming, car show, J-fashion show, and include more old school cultural elements like the samurai guy and the lady who plays the gottan. That's why on their website they don't just call it an anime convention, they say "Anime & Japanese Pop Culture Convention." When it first started though it didn't have as big of a focus on the other elements which is why it still has Anime in the name. People made a big fuss when they first started Import Reactor (the car show) because it wasn't anime. There is still a large focus on anime though.

I would definitely recommend AM. The only thing I didn't like last year was the location but they moved it this year. They have very good guests as well. Last year they had Flow and the Baby the Stars Shine Bright designers who are coming back again this year. It's definitely a large convention with plenty to do. This year they're also having the Lady Spade, a Kabuki performer, and a K-pop dance group that's organizing a flash mob. You should check out their website, they have videos from last year. http://animematsuri.com/

I've been hearing that about a lot of Texas cons. That last year wasn't good but they're moving. Or just moving in general for size reasons.. But I'm glad to hear that AM seems like a good one to add to the list!

Yeah AM almost got shut down in the middle of the con by the fire marshals last year. It's not that last year wasn't good (it was great), I just didn't like the convention center they used.

I'm so glad to hear that Matsuri is moving, cuz since it's in town I never get a hotel, I just drive back and forth, and with them moving, they are MUCH closer to me =D

Btw, I've been like super MIA in this thread, so if I missed anyone new coming in, HIIIII!!! XD
