I'm very happy that this meet up exists. I'll be going as Fujiko Mine from Lupin III.

Y'all can stop calling me Black Widow! XD

I'm planning on bringing my Sailor Princess Leia.

I'm going as Maika and my partner will be going at Aki.

Going back and forth if I should bring Magnolia (easy peasy) or Piper (ugh, leather jacket + may though)

I have way too many choices...Kongou, Graf, Shokaku,

I'm totally fine with Friday.
I'll be wearing my dapper rendition of Big Boss. Can't wait!

technically, fanime already has two cons - main Fanime and Clockwork Alchemy. Plus, the Bay Area has a ton of events in the winter like Animation on Display...

Big Event Showcase / Re: Another "Asian Only" rule
« on: May 17, 2013, 07:05:41 PM »
Removing the Asian Only rule will not change the use of tired memes, rap battles, or other overdone will just change the characters that use them. And while yes, there are tons of different cosplayers doing cosplay from a variety of sources...and by all means it is welcomed. But the event has a theme that is linked to Anime, manga, and many other Asian things, and it may not be the decision of the Masquerade director to adjust the competition to stray from that theme. Not saying it cannot happen, but just putting it out there for discussion.


If it's masquerade, it's their rules. Some anime conventions have walk ons for non-anime cosplays. While, yes...Homestuck, MLP, Marvel, DC, etc are getting popular, traditionally, masquerades are generally the theme of the con - in Fanime's case Japanese anime. It only seems fair enough.

Yet, no one stopped anyone from doing MLP, Homestuck, Doctor Who, etc for hall cosplay, right? I sometimes wish cons would make this rule a bit clearer. Like, on the Anime Boston website, they clearly state that it's preferred to have anime / video / Asian cosplay to be in events like masquerade, cosplay chess, cosplay murder mystery, etc. Yet, they still welcome non-Asian things and do randomly award any costume in the hall if it looks cool - Asian origin or not. Fair enough, I say.

Hey guys!
I won't be at Fanime this year, but I do love this convention dearly. I've attended this con for almost 10 years. I do hope one day to return..

I recently posted an editorial on encouraging conventions on how it is important to make everyone feel safe and have a reporting system (know who to contact) and encouraging enforcing disciplinary action against perpetrators.

Link here:

I thought I'd open up the floor on how staff can keep Fanime attendees safe and have a way to report / punish people who do harassment.

That would be Jared, he can be reached at jared @ He looks forward to your feedback.

(Though I have Type Moon-ish icon, I'm a lady. ^^)

I actually stayed shorter than I usually did because I had to pick up the award and return to my hotel. I wish I could have stayed longer. I do like the new venue and maybe it was the timing of the time that I arrived when people were doing demos and mixers.

Though this is more of a convention report, I do have a mega gallery of lots of cosplay photos:

I actually took a ton of shots from this gathering. If you peruse through the gallery, you can fine pics of the TokuxSentai gathering:

I'm hoping I posted this in the correct forum.

Here's our convention report!

This was my first time competing in Fanime Con masquerade. I wish I stuck around for the awards, but black and white ball was happening at the same time. Thanks to everyone for putting on an awesome show.

And muchos gracias to Marissa for all her hard work through the years. I remember when you approached me to do the Cosplay Spectacular video in 2006 as one of my first editing projects to ever be displayed. For many years, I've been in the audience watching the show and it was an honor to be performing alongside plenty of creative and talented cosplayers. It was a good show this year! I was thoroughly impressed by everything.

The staff photographer "in charge" of official cosplay gatherings... was extremely unpleasant to work with. He started off by telling us he was not at all familiar with our series so we should suggest poses, yet then went on to boss us around in a not-very-nice tone in poses and formations that didn't at all match our characters or what we were trying to do. Please let the cosplayers pose themselves unless they specifically ask for help.

I asked this guy to take photos of the Sailor Moon gathering with my camera and he nearly walked away with my camera. Luckily, I was able to find him and get my camera back before he went off. Hopefully, this was a misunderstanding.

Sailor Moon! There was a panel and a marathon this year, which I really enjoyed.

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the Sailor Moon panel! <3

The Good
+ Glad all of my panels were a success!
+ Lots of awesome cosplayers
+ I love the San Jose Convention Center venue
+ Easy check in for press / industry (one of my press people ended up with an industry badge? huh?)
+ Masquerade went really smooth and I'm glad it went well
+ I went to a few good panels this year. Yay!
+ Lots of fun stuff at stage zero - game show, fireside chat, angel hearts, etc
+ Maid cafe always delivers. Black forest cake for the win!
+ I love the Fairmont hotel! Nice place to wind down...and take photoshoots
+ Flying Hands massage...oh yeah! XD

The Bad
+ Please publish the schedule a week before con.
+ None of the guests really caught my eye. However, I was much more excited for the TGWTG crew.
+ More of a suggestion - for panel check in, can we phone or text check in? We were trying to get out of the hotel on Monday for checkout so we can make the 10AM panel.
+ I'm not a fan of the "mixer" style dances at the ballroom dance - switching off partners mid-song got annoying
+ In addition, keep the number of exhibitionists down at the ballroom dance. I go to the dance to dance. Save exhibitionists for something like stage zero or any other event.

Onigiri - yes!

Anything healthy that involves rice, I'll eat!

Ideas and Suggestions / Channel Awesome As Guests?
« on: May 07, 2012, 05:39:55 PM »
I thought I'd post this in since we're umpteen days into the con. I do know that Jew Wario and the Pyscho Otaku crew usually hit up Fanime. I know I've seen several posts wanting to see Channel Awesome represented at Fanime. I think it's about time a West Coast con should have people from this well known site as guests. Lots of MidWest and East Coast cons have members of Channel Awesome as guests.

Jew Wario, Psycho Otaku, and Psycho Neko do have much to do with Fanime's mission statement. They are fans creating fan videos for fans. Much of their material appeals to Fanime's main target audience - import games, super sentai, and everything anime. Last year, when they did their panel, they were mobbed by Channel Awesome fans.

I would kindly request Fanime Con 2012 make these dedicated fans guests of honor - their contribution to the anime / J-pop culture community is worthy enough to be guests.

That's the one I'm finishing up now. It looks a bit different from what I originally posted. I dropped the draping a little bit more and I bedazzles jewels on it. I just styled the wig for Azusa's short hair variation. All I have to do now is to adjust the underskirt (whoops...lost some weight!) and make the pendant for the necklace. I'm probably going to wear this version on Monday. I'm leaning towards wearing Do Dai for the gathering.

Why is this fandom so addicting?!
