Title: FANIME 2017 NEEDS A FORMAL INTRODUCTION OR SOMETHING!
Post by: bebop on June 02, 2016, 09:38:01 PM
Hello, I noticed every year that the Fanime weekend starts sort of abruptly and Fanime staff does not formally welcome its guests. I thought to myself, it would be so cool if we had some sort of parade or formal introduction welcoming on Day 1 (Friday) at like 3-5 PM.

What it would look like is to have all the attendees and cosplayers line up to the left and right, and split right down the middle is a red carpet or something, and walking down the red carpet can be special guests, staff, and Fanime emcee's on a microphone warmly welcoming everyone. With classical Final Fantasy music in the background, it would really unite us all in a geeky but fun way. Music like the Final Fantasy Main Theme would really hit our heart strings!

Just a suggestion, but it would be so cool imo if we had something like that.

You could always go to the opening ceremony on Day 1. It is along those lines.

I've been going for 15 years (or is it 16, I forget) and I've only gone once.
