Conventional Topics

Post by Caelun_Niveus on Tue Oct 01, 2013 5:22 pm

A thread for people to post and talk about anime conventions, whether plans to go to them or blurbing about what happened at them.


To get started, my dump of images from Anime Weekend Atlanta

Day 0 (Thursday before the con)

Somewhere in there are "Emma Kye Cosplay" and "Cattzs Cosplay and Crafts"
They gave me their cards and told me to credit them when I took the pic.

Am I the only one that can't see the pictures when I click on them? Which is odd cause I see the thumbnails just fine.

Also mfw the Youmu bodypillow case



I would never buy one myself and would normally be enraged but because it's a kind gesture I'm actually really happy.

EDIT: I can see all the other images on the site just fine, just not yours.

Reconsider changing something?
It might be the reason why your photos took so long to download on Skype.

I'm honestly not sure where I'll be in may. If I'm still in the general area I'll try for it.

Tempted to go to Otakuthon next august. So far away main question is who I should try to cosplay, or if I should.

Currently, my choices are:
Touhou Tenshi
Issei
Someone form Vesperia (undecided as of yet)

Alpar and Rofl may be the only ones who know what I look like, but what do you all think I should go as?

>Tenshi



Also I'd personally recommend not cosplaying as either for your first time, for body type reasons and design complexity reasons.

I think every cosplayer will tell you to go with something MUCH more simple for your first time. I don't have any ideas in particular right now though.

Other than the gauntlet and the wings Issei is simple enough. Yuri is little bit harder but if you don't mind exposing your chest the whole time go for it.

To be honest, I wouldn't be doing the wings as Issei. The gauntlet is almost a requirement to stand out as him though. Otherwise it would probably come off as casual wear and not cosplay.

Well, I guess I'll be going to this
http://www.visioncon.net/

I'm not the most excited for it (the location is extremely tiny), and it doesn't even seem to be an anime convention.

But it's literally walking distance from where I live so why the fuck not.

GOING NORTH:
A Halolzian Adventure


As some of you may be aware, this May 22nd-24th was Anime North 2015 in Toronto Canada.

Alpar (New York) and I (Arkansas) had the bright idea to go to Toronto and visit Rastel (also known as "The Mysterious Gourmet") and Gamage, who both live in the "Greater Toronto Area", while attending AN2015 as well.

This post will be my chronicle of the events that transpired, as well as a dump of Cosplay pictures and shit.

Day -1:
Well, planning for the Con started in about February (I think), which was the point where we all decided we were going to go and I bought tickets for Alpar and myself.

It wasn't until April that we actually got the specifics of where we were going to stay planned out, and wasn't until a week before the con that we settled on methods of transportation.  

Procrastination is painful, but at least it all worked out in the end.

Day 0:

Technically this is 2.5 days...  Starting with Tuesday, right after getting off work I went to Fayettville, where the airport is...  I have relatives who live there and offered to give me a place to leave my car for the weekend, as well as a place to sleep since it's a 2-hour drive from my home to there and my flight was leaving at 8 in the morning and everyone was telling me "arrive at the airport 2 hours before your departure time."

So at 5 in the morning I woke up, got showered, and began trying to get the people who were supposed to fly me to the airport up.  Get there at 6am and... I already had my boarding passes so by 6:10 I was at my gate and waiting for the plane

And there it is.  It seems I'm early...

... very early ...

... Well Fuck.

In my boredom, I managed to at least managed to do something productive

Organized!


Oh boy, now I'm ON the plane!

Wait... oh fuck

Oh fuck fuckfuckfuck

BY RUSS, MAN WAS NOT MEANT TO FLY!!!

"We are going into the valley of cloud"

"Minuses are not allowed to smoke on this flight"

I swear it was solid cloud cover all the way from XNA to New York.  Then again I was asleep half the flight.

Holy fuck that's a big city

And a graveyard big enough for a whole video-game level

A shame the people on the left side of the aircraft can't see this.  New York confirmed racist against lefties.

But I'm on the ground.  (more or less) My first time flying and no problems at all!

And then the jet-bridge mentioned it was a union worker on break.  So close.

I wonder where I am.  Leguardia?  Might that be near New York?  I'm sorry but I was on the left side of the aircraft.

Also, my gate got changed.  I was SUPPOSED to have my flight arrive at gate C4, but it got changed to C3.  Talk about a major inconvenience, will not fly again, rating the airline a 10/10.


I didn't know Rastel had a job in New York


My first and only view of the New York skyline


Waiting in line for takeoff.

I wonder if they teach airplane related stuff at this school right next to the airport.

Wait Fuckfuckfuck

IT KEEPS HAPPENING

"What a trimble valley of the wind"

Suddenly, the clouds stop!
Just as suddenly, water begins!

On the other side of the water, a city!

Don't think this city is part of the states

So, I arrived in KANAHDAH
First order of business was to find Alpar... who arrived at Terminal 1 while I arrived at Terminal 3...
Second order of business, get on the first bus!  ... which didn't accept any form of money we actually had on us, but they gave us a ride...
Third, Get off at our-hey wait you passed our stop
Fourth, get back to our stop
Fifth get on the next bus, 101 towards Westbound!  Wait, this is 11 towards Westwood...

Blue is the intended route.  Green is the intended destination.  Red is where we ended up.

Fortunately, we had found a cab there and managed to make it to Rastel's!

The guy has a pool!

Rastel grilled burgers for us (wasn't that hard, he had frozen pre-made patties), played some Smash with his IRL friends (and ruined his games with memes that can never be removed) before going to bed.

The next day was per-regestration, just going in to get our tickets early.  That wasn't until 5:00pm so we spent the morning watching Dredd, playing Smash, and then ate at Subway.
Also, Alpar got lost on his morning jog.

Lost... in what is basically a circle
Still didn't learn what Canadians call their alternative to "American Cheese".

Gamage appeared later that day, and our party was complete. Together we went to the per-regestration. Only took one picture there

The line was fucking long though... we spent at least two hours in it.  This prompted Gamage to change his streetpass greeting to a phrase that would remain relevant for the entire rest of the convention... and it so happens to be the title of the next section!

After we got back, we had Rastel watch The Iron Giant, and that was the end of the day.


Next part: Anime North begins!
