I think you still need to wait.

You could go to Clockwork Alchemy for badge pick-up, they historically have much shorter wait times. I'd wait to see if Linecon is back again this year before getting in line at Fanimecon.

There's usually a thread about props and peacebonding in the Cosplay subforum but I don't see one for this year. I did a search on the forums and the only mention of frying pan I could find was from 2012. My friend has done a cosplay with a mini frying-pan as a prop for a few years.

Your best bet might be to e-mail the head of the rovers, since they're the final word. rovers at fanime dot com.

Panels and Workshops / Re: 2017 Panel Requests!
« on: March 27, 2017, 04:25:47 PM »
World building - my friend is interested in a panel that can help explore how to build worlds for writers, game developers, etc, possibly from someone with experience in that area and how they made their fictional world, what worked for them, what helped them get creative and how to keep it all organized.

I'd definitely like to be on this - Worldbuilding's a special passion of mine.  I've actually written a book on it with more coming.  A lot could be done with this.

One subject that's also near and dear to my heart is how Worldbuilding differs with forms of media - a game, an anime, and a novel often require different levels of attention.

I'd go to a Wordbuilding panel, especially if it was hosted by someone who wrote a book about it. If it can't happen at Fanime proper I'm sure it'd fit in at Clockwork Alchemy.

just a reminder..speaking as someone who has worked with a car show at sjcc in the past (and not as a fanime staff member). sjcc is a UNION venue, meaning that (a) the owners can't drive their own cars in to south hall (a union driver has to) and (b) there is a gate fee for every car (and it's quite expensive)

Hmmm... how expensive is it compared to the usual parking fees?

Just imagine yourself as 34. Then you can want to be 24 again and have it come true!

Aw, no 5e? Would have been a neat place to run some AL play.

Is a Fanime badge/admission required to sell at Swap Meet?

I'm buying a weekend badge for Fanime, but my friend will not be attending Fanime at all. However, both of us want to share a space and sell at Swap Meet. Is this possible?

Sellers are allowed a helper, but I think they need to be registered too. Can't find a definite answer in previous years.

Reg won't have any problems if they get badges out as fast as they did in 2015.

Cosplay is costume play. Play! It's about having fun. As long as you want to dress up like a character, you should.

Accuracy is for modelling.

Pretty sure that's a Christian church and has little to do with anime.

If the friends I usually go to Fanime with are going to CRX next year I'll probably go to it over Fanime. Fanime's fun but I don't feel that there's a lot of variety from year to year.

-The final floor plan for Swap Meet is being finalized, but we should still have more than enough spots for everyone, based on last year’s numbers.

Can there maybe be bigger spaces please?

do you think it is safe to leave children here unattended by adults? or would it be better for them to have adult supervision?

...who's leaving children unattended?

I'm not sure if that's the case; if you look at the availability tables both Hilton and the Marriott offer Tuesday the 23rd to Wednesday the 31st.

Then pick-up for group registrations couldn't happen, and you'd have to wear the same paper bracelet from Thursday to Sunday.

Unfortunately, there IS no permanent fix for having too many attendees and too few hotel rooms. Every fix always causes more problems, so all you can do is hope that the net effect is positive.

In my experience they don't deviate much from the exact wording, so if it says "orange", pink won't be acceptable.

This is a snippet from the California senate bill about BB and airsoft guns referencing federal regulations, so it should serve as a good guideline:

...white, bright red, bright orange, bright yellow, bright green, bright blue, bright pink, or bright purple, either singly or as the predominant color in combination with other colors in any pattern, as provided by federal regulations governing imitation firearms, or where the entire device is constructed of transparent or translucent materials which permits unmistakable observation of the device’s complete contents, as provided by federal regulations governing imitation firearms.

So if the entire gun was painted bright pink, or with a bright purple and bright blue pattern, it'd be acceptable.

Theres the Sheraton downtown which was not listed for some reason?

Not every hotel in the area is willing to be part of the Fanime housing.
