This year, the entirety of the upper floor and a good chunk of the ground floor were off-limits except to pass-holders. This is a HUGE drag.

They did this last year. It really helped relieve the traffic upstairs.

The last time I attended Fanimecon, a 4-day pass was somewhere in the neighborhood of $60. This year, it was $85. Look, guys, this isn't Venezuela. We're not experiencing 50% annual inflation. This kind of price increase, in combination with the first policy change that I mentioned, is absolutely inexcusable, especially when Kublacon is still only $60.

This year I paid $55 for a 4-day pass, same as last year, and I think the year before that. Full weekend passes are cheapest when you buy early.

It was fun while it lasted. Maybe I'll start my own convention with blackjack and hookers.

Vegas is cool since it's also 24/7, but I still think Fanime is more fun and much cheaper. Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy this year's con, even though you technically never even attended.

Thanks so much for sharing! I'll be sure to share a link to the pics I got as well when the con is over!

Amtrak??

My friends have suggested that, but I'm not comfortable learning something new in crunch time. I'm the type who easily gets lost. xP

(TO MODS: Please move this to the proper place if needed!)

'Lo! As it stands, my plans A through Y of getting to Fanime have all failed. I'm in desperate need of a carpool! I live locally in the bay area, north of San Jose. I'll definitely have one small luggage about 2 feet tall and a backpack; the rest of my stuff is small enough to just sit in my lap. I'd like to go Friday morning (at least before 11am) and be dropped off at the Pacific Motor Inn about 2 blocks away from the con.

I will pay for gas and even cook fresh breakfast if you want! I really don't want to take BART and bus for 3 hours while wearing and carrying all my stuff. ;___;

Therefore, I don't think the wristband idea will work. Or am I missing something?

I think what LordDawn is talking about are those wristbands with the white sticker/adhesive parts that are hard to remove, like the ones at concerts and stuff.

Last year it was ridiculous how the AA folks were treated in this regard, causing many of them to lose out on housing.

Exactly! I saw AA peeps make the most ruckus last year when reg directly affected housing. As much as I want walking distance hotels myself, I really thought it was unfair to the people working at/for Fanime to put in even more work just to find a place to sleep.

And knowing that you've most likely been to Fanime more often than me - it's been around for years, but why do they have so many major problems? Why does it feel like some things never really get a permanent fix?

Ideas and Suggestions / Housing Priority
« on: January 23, 2017, 11:31:04 PM »
I've been thinking about this for a few days, but I'm not so sure it'd be easy or possible. It's basically just an idea to mull over, but I wish physically disabled attendees and peeps who are working/conducting business at Fanime had housing priority over everyone else, if not rooms already set aside for them.

I'm pretty sure someone or others might've talked about this before. I guess after finally getting a bit experience under my belt, I'm starting to see why the more seasoned goers often groan about a big, old con having so many issues.

Roommate Wanted

Hey hey, I'm Maribelle! I'll be 22 in March, and this will be my 4th (5th?) time attending Fanime. This will also be my third experience with hotels, but my first time booking by myself. I managed a single queen bed, no rollaway, at the Pacific Motor Inn (formerly Ramada San Jose) from Friday to Monday.

I'm looking for a single roommate, two if someone doesn't mind sleeping on the floor. I'm also only offering the space for Friday and Saturday night, as I will have someone staying over on Sunday night. I'd like to be paid in cash, $35/night for one roomate, $23/night (per person) for two roommates. You also get a room card.

I prefer people with a personality that can range from "I'm capable of conducting business with adult strangers" to "I snapchat my best friend while I'm on the toilet." People who can't get weird now and then make me shy and anxious to act myself. I'm not great at starting conversations, but if you talk to me I'll keep it going. :3 I'm also a bit of a night owl. If you don't mind me staying up kind of late (1am - 2am) and keeping to myself, I won't mind the same of you. And of course, the general "please respect my stuff, don't be noisy during dead hours, etc."

You can message me on here, email me at wun.21gigawatts@yahoo.com, and/or specifically request any of my social media (FB, Twitter, Tumblr, Snapchat, IG). If you're interested, please hit me up so that I can get to know you better before the con!


Request fulfilled! Thanks B! x3

I registered 1 - 2 hours after it opened and my booking time is Jan 18, 1pm.

I'm pretty nervous for what'll be available by then, but fingers crossed!

Hi! I started attending panels just least year, and Fanfiction 201 was one of them! I really enjoyed it, as well as the packets that you guys handed out. Although I've never been (yet), I'd love 120, especially with the idea that it's a "more relaxed open lab" kind of panel. Is the attendance usually much lower with it?

Registration / Re: 2017 Registration Opens 11/30 at 12PM/Noon

I registered around 1:15. Went smoother than a baby's bum. Then again...

I was afraid there might be some traffic issues with so many people trying to reg at once, but maybe the last minute nature of the annoumcement curbed the rush?

I too am crossing my fingers that the announcement threw a number of people off - enough to get a decent slot for hotel reservation, at least.

If you consider the intent of the rule (makeup or other items applied to the face or body can cause allergic reactions or be poorly made in a way that creates other adverse affects that Fanime does not want to be liable for) then I think dry nail polish on a product should be perfectly fine. Polymer clay artists often use powder makeup for pigment on their products and Fanime almost always has a Polymer clay artist or two. What kind of products do you make?

Thanks for the reply! I was thinking of selling my nail art on nail spines, (https://img1.etsystatic.com/013/0/6476818/il_570xN.424408985_rp3m.jpg) serving the double purpose of either a wearable accessory or an art piece. Ever year I do prom nails for some girls from high school. After taking my little brother to Fanime for the first time, he suggested I sell my work in AA. I'm aiming for 2018 because I need to both practice some more and put together a portfolio.
