Hey Ganguro, your Naruto game was a HIT!

I came to the con on Sunday, about 1:30. Suprised by the good turnout, but boy...Did I feel OLD when I got there. There was about 1/2 the Vegas teenage population it seemed at it!

Was pissed about one dealer (when you walked in, he was on the right-hand side, selling One Piece plushies) trying to gouge prices on Hong Kong bootleg CD's. Sorry, but i've bought more than my share of them to know NOBODY sells them for $30!! Try 10-12$, tops. I hope nobody bought from him, really. His plushies, the small UFO catcher dolls, for $20?? No way, Jose.

Other than that, I had a decent time, and will be looking forwards to next year's event. Might even want to volunteer for a day, in the video room.

Kudos go out, Vegas FINALLY has an anime con! *cheers*

I went to the Con Saturday afternoon...it was a good turn out and it was my first CON!!! I took my son with me too, I dressed him in this CUTE kung fu outfit I had bought my nephew when he was a year old...and when I added the touch of a Luna hat I just have to say I WISH I HAD MY CAMERA!!!!! I'm hoping someone took a picture of him cause we didnt stay tooo long...he was getting fussy....but I loved being at my first CON and sharing it with my son VERY MUCH!!!!!

Glad you guys/ gals enjoyed con.. Tomorrow will proally be a slow day being the last day.. but feel free to stop by... We've had CRAZY attendance.. like about 5X the expected turnout.. so that was good.. I know Rich is happy..
We're already talking about next year, and trying to keep it as cheap as possible for kids and attendees.. So.. Thank you again for comming out!

As far as dealer prices go.. what is a Con without price gouging?.. I mean, they've got ya by the short and curlies there...

Actually the CD's i bought from him were 2 for 25 and 4 pins for 10 bucks.. i also bought a UFO for 25, but it was pretty big.. not the smaller ones so maybe he lowered his prices sometime yesterday...

Anywho.. next year.. more dealers, hopefully lower prices.. more selection.
If you really want a good deal for your money.. PLEASE PLEASE Support Hoteiya Las Vegas. They have great region 2 DVDs that seem pricey, but are actually cheaper than they sell in Japan by about 30%. They also have some CUTE shirts for 15 bucks.. and they carry XXXtra large sizes for fatties like me ^__^. Here's a link to their webstore just in case you cant make it tomorrow...today....whatever... http://www.hoteiyalv.com/

On a somewhat unrelated con note.. there is a Manga/ Anime store oin MEadows mall named Otaku Nation, Next to Waldenbooks and MACY'S on the second floor that is struggling to stay open. Stop by and lend a few bucks, or swipe of the credit card to help em out! Last time i was there, it was buy 4 get one free!

Thanks to everyone for a great con! We couldn't have asked for things to run any smoother!

The costume contest had an AMAZING turnout. I was expecting no more than 20. . .and got over 30 entries! Everyone did a wonderful job ad-libbing on stage ^_^. I'm also happy to say that we finished 15 minutes BEFORE schedule! Thank you so much to all of the cosplayers!

And a BIG thank you to Tristen Citrine and Claire Rose, our super surprise judges!

I will have lots of pictures and a list of all the winners within the next week. . .but I'm far too tired to work on all that now *zzzzzz*

Not the best pics ever, but there are some ^^. I'm sure my friend will have more, and of much better quality (he was the tall blonde guy taking pictures of everything XD).

Hi,

Thanks for the linkage!
I'm assuming he's the one wanting to make that vash suit. Good luck to him on that little project. I had a blast at Anime Vegas. Too bad you didn't anticipate the HUGE show. I mean 200 people? I'm pretty sure there was WAY more than that! I'm pretty sure this con will have no problems growing at an exponential rate. I just hate that security guard that kept telling me to "SHHH" I mean...it's a con...not a library.

Thanks,
N.D Wolfwood
