Anyone from the SF Bay Area going to Fanime this weekend?
I think I'm going to go, managed to talk my friend into going too. Kind of hard to get the words out.
I should be there for the whole weekend.
How many days is this thing? I thought it was only Sat/Sun. Either way, due to work I'm only going to be there on Sunday.
EDIT: This thing runs 24 hours/day Friday through Monday?
How is that even possible?
Oh god, there's a Loli Gothic fashion show.
I'll be there Saturday.
OT A&M meat.
Meat? sure. I'll be stuck in the artist room most of the time tho.
Are you selling?
lolita gothic i'm going on a road trip
yeah I'll be selling stuff there. I can pm you what booth I'm at (so I don't get banned for spam)
on the side note - the girl in my AV is from the Fanime 2004 shirt design I drew for them that year and I think it's still the only year that the shirt sold out.
Are there going to be people camping out inside the place or something? With that type of schedule, I can't imagine how the hell they are enforcing ticket sales.
I wish there was some way for me to witness one of the themed dances that are taking place at 1 in the morning.
Good luck at the booth by the way, I'll stroll through there as well.
Have you ever been to a anime convention before?
Nope, first. Didn't know they were that huge.
oh ok, well Fanime is the largest one in the area. They way they enforce ticket sales is that you pre-register or register there for the convention, wait in that long ass line and they give a badge for the day or weekend. You have to flash that badge to enter any of the rooms.
The Dealers' Room has one set of entrance and exit doors. They do this to keep the flow of people smoother and to help push people throughout the room to make people walk by most of the dealers to help sales. I'm pointing this room out because they usually have some volunteer that's NEVER been in charge of anything in their lives watching the door and they like to stop people going the wrong way with their new given authority.
(I usually get a "Industry" badge and I get to walk pretty much any where I want to I usually walk through the wrong way just to give them shit .)
All the other rooms like any video rooms, guest panels and such you just flash the badge and walk in, sit any where and watch.
There's the occasional hotty dressed in cosplay so I would bring a camera.
oh yeah, forgot the rules...
Here's some pics of what may be walking around:
Thanks for the info. I'm going to be there on Sunday (afternoon) and possibly Monday. Anything you recommend checking out above all else? Watching the actual screenings is going to be less a priority for me than seeing a good interview or event about a show. Baboymo's posting about the Gainax crew being there would be fun to see, but they aren't tying down a specific date that they are going to up.
watch your back. you never know when these guys might show up
what is a jodeci?
Is that supposed to be the Turks or something?
from final fantasy guy on the far left kinda looks like one of em
Yeah, dude on the left is supposed to be Reno, one of the center guys could be Rude. The rest are just security.
