I remember it was around $7-$10 with in and out privileges. If you want to save on parking, this year I'm planning to park at the Linda Vista/Morena Blvd. Trolley station. It's the stop prior to the Fashion Valley/Town & Country Hotel on the Green Line. If you have props and in costume, than I guess the better option would to park in the hotel.

YAY! It'll be my first Anime Conji and hopefully I'll make it to my workshop! I'm doing a workshop on Ballroom Dancing! You're all welcome to help each other and we all learn together! I'll be there as Master Hand/Crazy Hand and probably be wearing my Ouran Host Club jacket.

I tried registering for Sunday online earlier because it was the only day I can make it to Conji this year. Last I checked it was $25 on DAY 0 and DAY 1 online, but the registration option was not available. Now I just got on right now and it's available but the price went up to $30 plus whatever processing fee there is. What gives? $30 is pretty steep for a final day of an anime convention and why would a single day price just jump overnight?

Conji, I'm disappoint.

So when i decided to go to conji this year, I didnt expect it to be as great as ax, but since ax acquired it, I expected it to be pretty good. However, upon arriving, I was disappointed. On Friday, not only were there not programs, we didnt have maps and there were no staff to show us where certain things were. Then on Saturday, we finally got the programs, only to realize that the person who had done the gatherings had forgot to enter down a line so it said like 1pm:ROse Garden 2Pm: Hetalia 3pm:Charlies Trolley. It also didnt help that one sign could say a gathering was happening at one place and then a different sign said it was somewhere completely else... Also i wish artist alley/exhibit hall was either bigger, or next time in a smaller area. it just felt small........

Just got back from Conji and I can also say that I was disappointed with the Dealer's Hall. It was spacious but at the same time it felt like a ghost town. Empty booth space left and right and some Dealers didn't open on time either.

I don't understand why there needs to be two gaming rooms (One in the Dealer's Hall and the other at the other side of the hotel). I heard that the game room was broken into and had some stuff stolen.

I also realized people were parking on the dirt lot between the hotel and Fashion Valley mall. I thought that dirt lot was part of the mall and you run the risk of receiving a ticket or have your car towed.

EDIT:

Facebook gallery for Day 3 only which was the only day I could attend.

I was in the artist alley and was kinda disappointed myself with the hall. It was so spacious..which is nice but it felt WAY to empty. I know my fellow artist friend, who was to be sitting next to me, fell sick so her table was empty but there were a lot of empty tables. I don't think the move to the bigger room was truly needed.

But hey, I made sales and a lot of the people who stopped by where really nice.

Pictures I was able to get from the whole weekend. Not a lot but meh. Should be able to tag if needed:

Here's the TFA Cosplay gallery for Anime Conji 2013. If you're one of the cosplayers and want a larger and/or raw version of the pic, let me know, and I'll make them available.

I only went on Saturday. Not the best con in the world, as attendance was small and they could have done a better job of filling convention space, but it scratched my itch to take cosplay pics. Here's everything I took, which was a tad over 160 shots:

I had fun at Anime Conji! But my biggest gripe was how unorganized it was. My Ballroom dance panel was scheduled at an awful time and place. I rescheduled the panel from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm and I was scheduled to be using the Main Events room. But when I arrived, I noticed there was no sign indicating what events will be in that room and what time they will be start. Just a sign says only "Main Events". The room I got was waaaaay too big that I should of gotten a smaller room and people who got in thought nothing was going on. When my panel started at 1:30 pm, I bailed out since it was pointless for me to stick around and I wish I can make announcement around the area. I heard that the program guide didn't show up until day 2 afternoon. If it showed up sooner or had indication of what events goes on in the Main Event rooms, I could of had couple of more people stopping by showing some interest. I've done 5 ballroom dance panels in the past, this was the first time I ever canceled my own panel if it weren't for poor timing and execution.

Please explain why the prices jumped during con? 1 day passes became $30 once con started. I'm very upset by this.
