I wanna get a room but it's pricy..could sare but..

I don't know anyone and my friend aren't into cons...*feels alone* I'm cautious as to meeting people from online..cuz of all the things you here about it...

The only thing i can think of is to go back and forth but i'll miss everything

I'm hoping i can meet people from Toronto in person though that might be going..and make friends cuz i wanna meet more peeps that are into anime anyways.!!!

*is very careful too* yay for Anime Clubs!!

Fortunately for me, I belong to one of the largest anime clubs in Canada, so I'm not short of friends to room with.

If you really want to get extreme, people have been known to sleep in the 24 hour anime room. It's free, but definately not convinent or comfortable. ^_^'''''

If you want to make anime friends, strangely enough, one of the best way is probably to hang out at Kikiwai. As with all things though, becareful of who you meet.

If you do find someone to share with, depending on the type of room you get and how many poeple are sharing it wouldn't be *as* expensive as having a room to your self. Don't get me wrong, it'll still cost quite a bit, but not nearly as much as having a room to yourself or as inconvenient as having to get to the Con every day... I have experience with that last one..not fun paying for parking every day...

Yeah! Get a van and go like they did in the 60's, aka take out the seats and sleep like it's camping!

That was my idea for CNAnime last year. I told my friend to bring his dad's van and that we were going to crash in it so that we could stay for anime all night..and then they all sold me out and made me sleep on his couch instead with two people who snore so loudly that I couldn't get any sleep....and...yeah... I had issues with that con... I am SOOOOOO getting a hotel room this year...with no people who snore!

I have a cosplay group of at least six and I have NO idea what we're going to be doing for room plans.

I mean..I'm the only girl and I don't mind sharing with guys,but the problem is.. how many can we stick in a room? We don't have enough money to afford TWO.

And do they come up to check if you have too many?

They don't have X-ray visions, and they don't do manitory room sweeps. What they do do is watch to see if you have a lot of people all going into one room with bags.

We've done 6-7 to a room. It's gets really cramped any more than that, you have to remember to take ppl's stuff into account.

You know what would be interesting? Being a hobo for a weekend. Ya know, sleeping outside, all of that stuff. Sure it'd be a little um...odd but it sounds funny!
