Since the photo threads are maxing out so quickly, let's have a Fanime thread for con experiences. One each for good, bad, and ugly.

Sweet lord this. Luckily my friends and I had industry badges but maaaaaan, our hotel room was RIGHT over the reg line. Our mornings were filled with cheering on the masses to never give in.

There wasn't a lot I did at this con outside of hanging with friends and cosplaying (prime source of fun this weekend). I always enjoy the dance circles that happen in the middle of the day. Dances at night were really meh. Only cool things were meeting some peeps at the dance and just havin' some fun with new friends! Hung out in the game room every so often, got some neat stuff at the swap meet and artist alley.

Best part of my weekend was a FFTactics Photoshoot and spending time with one of my friends who I rarely see.

Shout outs to Calyx and Korov for hangin' out this weekend. Y'all were really cool and it was a pleasure meeting and chillin' with you both! Your costumes were great :D Hopefully we can kick it again.

All in all Fanime was alright, but definitely not one for the record books

New guy, entirely new staff, tech failure, schedule changes being made by fanime without telling the people running the event. I personally am not writing off fanime masq yet, but if it's not improving next year I will be sad because it's the only one I can compete in anymore. I know people want to do big fancy performances, but my advice is always to be able to handle all your stuff with your own group, keep your cues simple, and keep a backup copy with your audio with you (or three copies) because inevitably stuff will go wrong and it will fall entirely on your entry to be able to make things work.

so much of my life wasted in the reg line! on day 0 we waited for an hour before bailing, then got in line day one at 8am and it took 3 hours, and on either day one or two I was with friends getting their badges for another 3 hours. the funniest part is that I really didn't need my badge at all, ha. Fanime itself is horribly organized, but despite that I had an amazing week with old and new friends. def wouldn't buy a badge if I went again.

in the game room: there was a card line for iidx with like a million cards but no one around to take their turn so someone stacked up all the inactive cards and set them aside and someone stole the stack and my card. good thing it wasn't anything important lol

quite a few surprisingly good ssfiv ae players from out of town showed up. I remember a really solid fuerte and a good fei. standing up to play on those cabs was awkward

ran into someone I knew and he violently shook my hand and unintentionally aggravated a nerve injury

enjoyed the cosplay immensely. too bad I hate being looked at/attention (doubly so from strangers) or else I'd actually partake. instead, I browse /cgl/

line wasn't so bad, about 3 1/2 hours. it was kind of fun eavesdropping on everyone's conversations and seeing some good cosplay up close

I read in another thread that the higher-ups and staff knew that this year was already a bust so they cut back on a lot of their services and didn't pursue guests that "hard" in order to save money to go all-out next year on FanimeCon's 20th Anniversary and when the construction so that everything can be housed in the convention center proper sans MusicFest and the Masquerade.

Fanime needs to go with the bar code system for reg though. It would speed things up drastically and even though they fucked up this year everyone will come back for their 20th.

this was my first fanime....some impressions:

- prereg line was terribad on friday AM (2.5 hours in line)...for a con this big to ONLY have 3-4 booths for prereg is just DUMB. they need to at least double their registration staff for thurs and fri. also, who the FUCK alphabetizes by first name???? my badge ended up in the wrong section and it took the dude like 10 minutes to find it. this is easily the WORST way to arrange badge pickup.

- didn't really have much issue with the construction, other than it being ugly and not really having space for big costumes to be out front and out of the way, yet still visible for photo ops.

- got recognized and stopped for a ton of pics in most of my costumes, even though i mostly do older shit (like relena peacecraft) so that was a nice change from FL.

- /cgl/ meetup was great...met some nice people (i was the one in the zebra print gaga outfit). y'all are some classy folks.

- masq.....WELP. all i will comment on. let's just say i used to compete in FL...fanime was even more of a hot mess than FL cons in this respect. some of the skits were really awesome (utena, madoka, 5star stories, and amazingly enough the hetalia one was really funny) but the MC was painful to sit through.

yep, i'll be back...but mostly because SJ is only an hour from me.

What's your take on the decesion to have AA in the tent? Sounds like the big issue was that there was not enough signs pointing toward AA. However there seemed to be a good amount of traffic, lots of space for between tables and walkways and the larger space allowed for more tables to be present.

I agree with all of these.

My third Fanime and god damn.
The best experience getting to see all my NorCal friends and have a drunken blast with them, and the dances were pretty cool, but for some reason, everyone got extreme headaches...
And then the construction is still a bitch...god knows how long their going to take finishing the thing.
It was Linecon. So much waiting, but that was probably due to the heavy amount of people there. Didn't seem as much as last year though...
Didn't see any crazy people or photographers. Fanime is usually good at this for me though.

My main problem was the Masqu. That was terrible. So incredibly disorganized. The guys working the lights and/or music and/or the performances were high as shit. Although the band that went first wasn't too bad.

tl;dr : great experience, terrible programming

It was my first AA so I can't really compare against other years. It was spacious, but the aisles could have been a little smaller so some people didn't get shoved into dark, abandoned corners.

What I don't get is why it was there in the first place. The old AA just had a handful of food stands and apparently was also the dojo. So that leaves me to believe that the entire AA was moved because they couldn't find a better place for those two.

My neighbors were pretty cool except the one monstrously fat chick that kept yelling at passerbys to buy her giant minecraft plushies.

Masquerade definitely was a buzzkill but I had a bone to pick with the construction. All the hallways were constricted and even the main entrance outside was very constricted. Combine that with heavy traffic and my bigass costume. Luckily, some rover was always nice enough to help clear the way when I was getting around.

So instead of asking me nicely I got rude staff talking about don't be lying to me taking pictures of my badge, you better go to the peacebonding station now all demanding. Same thing happened to my friend.

Also there taking that cosplay is not consent bullshit too far I'm just being like everyone else at cons and at some point i was poking a few people on the side like a tickle and then i get a hoard of fucking staff members saying someone claimed i grabbed their ass. WOW the nerve of bitches these days. they had no proof of this other than what the fucking girl claimed.

They gave me a hard fucking time getting into the black and white ball cuz of the bottom of my shoes i argued my way in. Then my date comes looking hot as fuck. She couldnt get in cuz of her heels. then i noticed about half of the people who got dressed really nice for it couldnt get in either with thier SUPER STRICT SHOE POLICY. LOTS OF PEOPLE WERE FUCKING PISSED and so was I cuz now my date was cancelled.

completion is slated for Fall 2013 and is currently on track. It is supposed to add another 125,000 sq ft of combined meeting, ballroom, exhibit space to the center's current 425,000. I guess that means AA will be able to return to the center instead of being in South Hall.

To be honest I liked Hall 1 having some tables and a couple of food vendors (one being 24 hour) because it gave more "crash space" for people to use. Also the swap meet but that's only Thurs/Fri.

I was probably four hours in the at-con reg line, when my friend's friend called him and said he was coming. We fucked with him saying there was barely any line, just go on ahead man. Of course he eventually did find the line, when one of the rovers informed everyone that there was ANOTHER reg line at the Clockwork Alchemy place. It only took him around 20 minutes to get his badge.

Maybe I've just become so used to long waits, but the fact that I only had to wait for an hour and a half tops on Saturday morning was a blessing to me after having to wait 4+ hours at other cons in the past. I did think the whole "sorted by first name" thing was really silly. Luckily they found my group's badges pretty quickly and we got the heck outta there.

As usual, it was the people that made the con for me. I didn't really meet any seagulls this year but the gatherings were great and I enjoyed just being out and away from home for a weekend, heh heh.

Programming wise, it was... meh? Not bad, but not amazing either. But, you gotta make the most of it and I still had fun regardless. Dealer's room was definitely disappointing this year though, but that's just me.

Overall I give my Fanime experience this year a B-

Which of the things from Psycho Donuts did you end up trying? They seem kind of hit or miss, most of them are average but a few are good.

I have to admit the specials they had in the food court could definitely be described as overrated, but some of their standards were nice. My friend and I woke up at ass-o-clock to get to their main location at opening while they still had the good stuff on day 2, and managed to get in there before the lunch rush on the last day. Of the ones I tried:

Fung Shui: oddly refreshing for a donut. I'm not a big fan of green tea but didn't have an issue with it here. Sweet, but not too sweet.
Headbanger: standard jelly donut, nothing special.
Kooky Monster: tasty, but oh my god do I regret it. I don't do well with eating super-sugary foods on an empty stomach, and my stomach hated me for the rest of the day. It was still delicious.
the Jasonut: better than the Headbanger, or at least less common. Not-too-sweet chocolate dough (as opposed to the usual cake chocolate donuts) goes well with the raspberry jam
Raspberry Road Rash: surprisingly sour. My friend didn't like it, but I did.
Straberry Margarita: HEAVEN IN DONUT FORM. I was skeptical about the sound of the Tequila cream, but oh my god this was an excellent donut.

I still have a Dead Elvis sitting in the fridge that I'm honestly frightened of eating, though.

Because that's totally Fanime's doing and their fault. It sucked balls for everyone, I doubt the staff were gleeful that the construction caused problems for everyone, it probably caused more problems for them.

Fanime made the best out of a bad situation. By dividing the con, AA and registration they really took a lot of pressure from the con center. In addition they were wise enough to tape walk ways on the carpet and made sure attendees kept moving. I find it funny that despite all that happened, 2013 Fanime was the easiest con to navigate

The okay: I asked to take pictures with a bunch of cosplayers, which is sorta weird?

The bad and COMLETELY ugly: One of the shots I maximum hover handed a moon priestess from Avatar and had to run back to ask her for another photo because Im so beta.

Skipped the B&W Ball because the dresscode seemed too strict and I didn't want to have to deal with that BS. Fancy dress I brought for it went right above my knees and according to the rules posted in the schedule I wouldn't have been allowed in.

AA over in the circus tent was good and bad. Seemed like a pain to walk all the way over there but once I got in I did appreciate that there was enough space to actually walk around the booths this year, and there didn't seem to be a lack of traffic in there. Also seemed like more booths than last year?

Took one look at that reg line and booked it over to the Doubletree to pick up my badge over there instead. Took 10 minutes to get there, 5 minutes to get my badge and 10 minutes to get back. Felt bad for friends that insisted on staying on waiting in a 6 hour line at Fairmont instead.

Skipped the Masquerade because it's always awful- 10 shitty skits for every 1 decent one, starts late, awkward boring breaks in the middle of the show. No thanks.

Overall had a good time but that was mostly because of the friends I was hanging with. Overall typical Fanime.

They should just say no heels in the rules then. The rules said heels over 4 inches and stilettos were not allowed. If people were still gettings turned away for their heels that were within those rules then that is bullshit.

>The good
Lots of great pictures of my cosplays and other cosplays
Decent party scene after hours
Philz coffee and Pita Pit
Made some new friends
Offsite artists alley (I really liked how much more space there was, even if it was a block and half away)

The bad:
only two room keys for eight people
Less cosplay than usual (or so it felt)

The ugly:
after hours creepers who probably weren't even con goers, just random idiots off the street who wandered in
Dat reg line (although thankfully it only took me 3 hours to get through on Friday)

Heels are allowed, but the heel point cannot be too small or it might damage the floor. The problem with this is that some dance shoes have a too-small heel and I think those were the ones that were unfortunately turned away. The floor is something that will be used for many years, so it's in Fanime's interest to keep it in good shape, especially with the floor vendor.

It was my first fanime sooo:
The good: I have to say I had more fun than at Comic-Con just because of the smaller size made it more personal and accessible.
The bad: The construction did make everything a little more claustrophobic.
The ugly: The masquerade got pretty bad, but I still enjoyed it, probably because I don't have anything else to compare it too.

Were any of you guys at the Berzerk showing on Saturday? It was like riff-tracks in there, everyone cracking jokes

Also did anyone else have a run in with the (obviously) drunk guy on saturday night yelling PIKACHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU?

The Good:
- Nostalgia Con 2013
- First fucking con in a while that actually caters more to anime
- Hanging out with people
- Dealer's Hall was pretty decent
- Nice weather for the most part
- Cosplay was pretty good

Bad:
- Fucking line ruined everything. We did about two hours, but we had 1 person at at-con registration that spanned about four to five hours
- Gatherings list pretty much sucked
- I don't even remember going to any
- Masq staff lost my table

Ugly:
- Dat masquerade, everything about it was a hot mess
- My group and I were backstage when the Kyoko from the Madoka skit ran up to Jack and screamed at him about ruining their skit after having worked on it for a year. She went ballistic while the Kyubey was crying really loudly inside her suit

I initially thought that the whole drama in the back was reality show worthy.

Good: Food (as always), Sharks fans (I'm Kings fan, but damn Sharks fans are BRO-tiers), Artist Alley people (all of them have been awesome), Press department, Hanging with some friends, Tokusatsu panel was a big success despite the fact that we were shotgun-scheduled for 9pm Sunday.

Bad: Programming department fucked us till the very last (my Tokusatsu panel got delayed for 15 minutes due to tech support coming in late), Artist Alley location was a bit inconvenient and poorly advertised, no one staff at the convention knew what was going on, missing out on Monster Hunting with friends (which I deeply regret for reals)

Ugly: friends telling me about what happened at Masq. Just hearing about the tales made me cringe.

Would I go again? probably. Lot of people were asking me if I'm bringing the panel back for 14, so I can't say no to that. That said, they need to step up next year or they're really gonna suffer the consequence for the next few years after

This. Why were there so many power tripping con staff?! I got so much shit over my shoes at the B&W ball last year too. It was a short heel and this one staff kept yelling at me to get off the dance floor. We went to the ball an hour before closing this year and no one gave a fuck, even when some of us clearly had high stilettos. I guess they were only being asses earlier in the evening.

Also, who was the shrill bitch who was manning the rave line on Sunday? She kept screaming "single file" and took it as a moral offense whenever anyone took a single step to the side. She even told one couple (one was behind the other and putting their arms around the other's neck) that there would be "no hugging, single file only!" Her voice was so annoying and grating.

Also met a guy who got assaulted by staff. Apparently they thought he was badge hopping and when he tried to leave, they grabbed his arm, twisted it, and ripped off the badge from around his neck. Jesus.

The good for me this year was the Brain's Base panel, and surprisingly registration. Everyone who was waiting 4+ hours should have just gone to Clockwork Alchemy. It was literally a walk in, get your badge, and walk out deal. Pretty sweet, even with the distance. Con bus still sucks balls though, so drive instead.

I wish I could say the same. Maybe the night staff were more on edge than the day staff. We had some really rude encounters with the staff manning the rave too (shining flashlights into people's eyes, being rudely told "no sleeping" when someone was sitting on a chair and resting on the sidelines, etc). Some staff just seemed like they were looking for trouble to "set straight."

Lost and found staff absolutely sucked. They denied having some items that were clearly visible in the room, and even when we described them properly the lady kept scowling at us while admitting that it was ours. It had our names on them too.

There's also one staff member who cosplays as Sebastian, who was pretty rude throughout the con with a few friends and constantly glaring at us whenever we were around the con.

I get that there would be more liability involved in the night activities, but seriously the rude attitude was what bothered me about a lot of these interactions. No one deserves to be screamed at, publically humiliated, or physically assaulted, even if the staff were technically in the right for rule enforcement. It was the way it was handled that was uncalled for and unforgiveable (and in the case of the assault, illegal).

I had lots of fun this year and all, but as others have brought up before, what the hell was up with the power-tripping staff? Especially the peacebonding station, jesus christ. The one guy there was such an ass, and gave me shit for writing "(plastic)" next to "baseball bat" on my sign-in for my prop for my Batter outfit. He got in my face about it saying that it's "his job to know if it's wood or plastic, and I didn't need to tell him", when I was just trying to be helpful and had been very polite. He was the same asshat who roughly jammed on the trigger of my Rubi pistol that went with my Mad Moxxi cosplay It's the trigger from a plastic capgun, and the rest is all cardboard and bondo, but the trigger is not meant to be pulled on hard or the gun will be damaged. (Pic related, the thing couldn't be a real firearm if it tried. Also, that was NOT the bat I tried to bring in, for the record.) Luckily it wasn't, but he was dangerously rough with it and I found that both unprofessional and disrespectful. I've brought much "worse" weapons to WonderCon and Comic Con, where the peacebonders are ex-military or cops, and have only ever had them do a once-over, tell me to be responsible, tag it, and send me on my way.

The volunteer staff of Fanime seriously need to get their shit together.

Did anyone else have an issue with assholish peacebonders?

It was my first year also but the South Hall has piss-poor lighting. They didn't even bother cleaning out the AC ducts so it fucked with people's allergies and asthma and at some parts of the hall, dust was being blown onto people's prints. A lot of artists said that they had to wipe off layers of AC dust from their merch every day which fucking sucked. I didn't have that problem because I was by the doors but this meant that if the doors were left open the wind would blow apart my display. It was generally pretty poorly planned although the staff was helpful enough.

I wasn't there when this happened but my dad went to peacebond my cannon after being told to go by rovers. Their length policy is less than 7 ft. I made it 6'4 to accommodate Sacanime's policy of 6'6 policy. Nowhere near the limit and they (Fanime) tried to ban it, saying it was too big. My dad had to argue and stuck it under a doorframe to prove it's plenty short enough.

Yeah Wreck-It-Ralph I'll give a pass since it's so heavily based on eastern and western games, but all the British shows, Avengers, ponies and homestucks? Ugh. I got overly butthurt in the pre-Fanime threads where people would shows all their planned cosplays and some had jack shit to do with anime or vidya at all.

Noticed that the Homestucks are kinda on the downswing. Unfortunately I think the smarter fans are avoiding the stigma and passing on HS cosplay all together which gives us a smaller, but more concentrated form of fuckery.

Random lolwut: At the Sunday Fanime Game Show the guy is all "Alright taking contestants who can answer a lot of ANIME trivia, I repeat ANIME trivia" and for his selection round asks the contestants to bet on who can name more Megaman X bosses.

Still I like his show better than Anime Hazard where the guy just has a ton of questions about 80s and 90s anime and berates the contestants and audience for not having the same pathetically deep anime knowledge as him. Enjoy that buddy. Cons are the only place where that knowledge means anything.

Atleast ask seasonal anime questions. Seriously the bare minimum for people attending these cons should be to atleast be watching crunchyroll on a regular basis.

Was that indie band ever actually announced by Fanime? Seems like it was a huge surprise to everyone who saw the masq even though they were set to play at least the Monday last week according to the band's facebook page.

It's definitely the most fun, but the difficulty dropoff between the similar names questions and the name-that-quote questions is intense.

Well as you go up the tiles, they get harder and harder, as the game goes. I've seen the list of questions for all the different categories and some of them are pretty "What color is Pikachu" tier.

It just depends on when you get up there, at least for that version of the game.

The audience participation was great, I was one of the dudes taking a victory lap at the end and I could tell the energy was still high even though it was one in the morning.

It was pretty fun. My friend did the Mega Man 2 Quickman laser part on his first try during the arcade edition one and then we got all our questions right as a team during the RPG one later that weekend. I wish there were more anime questions, but I guess it comes with the territory for it to be vidya centric. I got so mad when some shitty group didn't get JoJo. Fuck you guys!

Sweet lord, sunday night trivia was brutal. But some of those synonymous game titles were horrid. Talking to Johnny the next day was just a hilarious nightmare

The energy didn't drop off until Power Rangers started.

And it didn't pick back up until maybe 30 minutes before Brony Morning.

Bit of a late reply, but when I went to peacebond on Friday they cleared my 8 foot prop without a single hitch. Sounds like you just ran into a dickwad.
I did have rovers running up to check if I had it peacebonded maybe twice an hour though, that got old fast.

At this point I'd almost welcome Naruto.

Anon staff here.

Were they rovers or volunteers?

Rovers, volunteers and general staff have no power to do this. Only Wolfgang and the other heads have power to legitimately pull badges, and even that process takes a while compared to just having your badge taken away like that.

I suggest you write about this in the Fanime Forums and suggestions. This is seriously not cool. Please report this and give as many details as possible.

>>6872674
I actually find the K-Pop shoved on Stage Zero inappropriate. Even the Cherry Blossom Festival is pressured by Korean content and it's upsetting many of the Japantown locals.

Christian nut-jobs that like to camp out every year on the sidewalk holding "Accept Jesus" signs. It's become a bit of an attraction for Fanime attendees. This year however, there was no sidewalk for them to occupy because of the construction.

no but there was a guy by the movie theater yelling about Jesus. We must have really pissed him off because my friend (dressed as disco Twilight Sparkle) pranced around while he loudly proclaimed the evils of our generation.

that was just weird as fuck
especially how they kept dancing to different songs til someone told the sound board to cut the music because they were going on too long. I mean, what the fuck? Bad enough you're doing Korean music but they had a bunch of songs.

>>6872986
it was probably just a sound fuckup and the girls getting mad because they practiced so hard just to have a fuckup by staff.

What I have heard from Jack (the coordinator) and the group: ALL the masquerade audio was lost right before the masquerade due to a hard drive failure, so they were working with backups for the show. The audio tech (new to masquerade) somehow managed to play two tracks at once for the Madoka group's skit (also for another group apparently). Madoka group is super upset and go give Jack crap. They were allowed to redo their performance at the end with the audio run correctly.

I like how everyone in the audience got pissed about the Hetalia skit, when it was obvious they fucked up on purpose, since you know, all the audio was recorded beforehand

Good: Had fun for my first Fanime and con in general

Bad: Awkwardly bought a print from Alex Ahad (artist of Skullgirls), and awkwardly walked away

Ugly: THE FUCKING LINES and all the homestucks everywhere

Couldn't walk 10 feet without seeing a Homestuck cosplay. Next year I'm gonna have to cosplay as something

Good: Saw a lot of awesome cosplay, hand fun with my online buddies, and got some cool stuff I would never have been able to get. A great experience for my first con.

Bad: Waiting for elevators, Missed out on getting a shot of an awesome Muromi cosplayer who was at the counter of the Fairmont.


I got a good chuckle out of the people who had a Horo cutout in their window that I could see from my room though.
Ugly: The guys running the TF2 tournament were incompetent and told us the game hadn't started yet, so while we were trying to fix the controls for our team the other side capped the points and we were eliminated just like that. This is on top of the fact that they had no idea how to run a tf2 server in the first place.
