First post updated, thank you thank you!


its day 1

Ah, now I see what happened. The gathering split into two groups at the start and some cosplayers moved back and forth between them.  Thought I was losing my mind that some cosplayers who I could have sworn were there mysteriously disappeared in some pictures.  Great shots!

First post updated, thank you!

Fanime 2015 is over and with photographers and attendees heading home and settling in, pictures from the con will start to pop up online.  It can be difficult to find everyone's galleries and pictures of cosplay, especially if you misplaced a photographers business card.  Personally I just love general hall photos of cosplayers taken on the spot, which can sometimes be even harder to find if you cosplay as obscure stuff like myself.

Did you take pictures at Fanime 2015?
Are said pictures online some place?

Then PLEASE post the link in this thread and I will maintain an index in this first post.  Links below are in no particular order, the idea is to have the most galleries in one place so you can kick back and check out a bunch of pictures of FanimeCon 2015.  I'm only indexing photo galleries since cosplay videos are relatively easy to find via YouTube search but feel free to post video links in this thread.  Thank you for sharing and for making cosplaying at Fanime so enjoyable!

^ Saturday morning I was wearing my Densha de Go! E3 Series Shinkansen SD train suit. I entered an elevator on the street level of the convention center and as the door was closing I hear a group of Fanime attendees say "Train in the elevator!" from a distance. My general reach is limited with the train around my waist so I wasn't able to punch the door open button. Instead I gave them a Japan Railways salute and as the elevator doors slid closed the two or three attendees at the other end of the hallway did the same.  Outstanding convention year all around but that's what I'll remember most.
< Recovering from con.
> Laundry today then preparing for end-of-con prop inspection and making a repair list.
V Favorite thing you bought / saw at Fanime this year?

Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Volunteers Lagging on Badge check.
« on: May 25, 2015, 06:08:40 PM »
Agreed. Badge checks in video rooms were extremely lax this year from what I experienced.  Granted I had no issues in any of the video rooms but only three times did I ever pass any staff or volunteers at a video room door, only twice was a badge check ever performed - once on Friday and once on Saturday.

I don't know if it's a Convention Center restriction but I've said in the past that checking badges at the two entrances to the hallways for the two video room sections would minimize the amount of required staff.  Additionally staff / volunteers that are supervising the video rooms would be free to remain inside to keep the videos running and not have to perform double duty checking badges outside while keeping an eye on the room inside.  Four total badge checkers (two at the entrance to each of the executive ballroom hallways) could take care of this, one at each hallway during off-peak hours.

Thank you so, so, so much for hosting this gathering, BSaphire.  Realizing that there was an old school gathering is what got my girlfriend and myself into cosplaying in 2014 (her at the age of 29 and myself at 32).  I will treasure the Galaxy Express 999 model kit from Friday's gathering forever!  I hope to see even more cosplayers at Saturday's gathering!

Early praise: Nice job getting everyone in quickly and orderly, Swap Meet Staff.

^ New copy of the Cyber Formula DVD boxset as the last two discs have finally bitrotted themselves into oblivion... at least that WAS to be an upcoming purchase until I found a sealed new old stock Cyber Formula DVD boxset at swap meet tonight for $30.  Woohoo!  I love cracking open a sealed 10+ year old anime DVD, smells like... Suncoast.
< Congratulations on your scholarship!
> Home early from Day Zero for a change.
V What's on your agenda for Friday?

^ Same as last year, Old School Cosplay (anime, manga or game pre 2001) gathering on Friday and Saturday. Hoping that a second day will equal a larger group.
< Is really excited for Fanime to begin.
> Shirts finally finished and handwashed, currently drying - hurray!
V Still making final preparations for Fanime or are you ready to go?

^ Sadly (and rather regrettably) I didn't start attending Fanime until the yearly theme became less and less of a focus. That said, I'm glad that the tradition is upheld.  I stepped away from cons (outside of arcade and pinball collector shows) until 2012 - and as I said, I really regret that.
< I think everyone's sewing machine is feeling the crunch.
> Still up finishing the last part of this shirt. 3 cosplays this year - Sugo Corporation pit crew from Future GPX Cyber Formula, Tetsu-chan and a shinkansen wearing salaryman (used in the commercials) from Densha de Go!, and Taizo Hori and Masuyo Tobi from Dig Dug / Baraduke / Mr. Driller / Namco X Capcom again from last year.
V Why are you still awake?!

^ Alright, here's a really positive one, from 2013, the year Fanime was supposedly so horrible.  I always spend a ton of time in video programming rooms, mainly the nostalgia rooms (I tend to enjoy old school stuff more and I always find more old school stuff to catch up on), and 2013 was no exception.  Sunday morning I was watching a favorite of mine, Armored Trooper VOTOMs.  Got there nice and early that morning and although there were only two viewers in the room other than my girlfriend and myself, I settled in to VOTOMS' special brand of hard science fiction.

About halfway though the screening at 7am there was a staff change in the video room.  The staffer who took over was in a word: awesome.  Very cool to talk with about old school anime, offered to turn the volume up if the bass from the marathon room was overpowering through the wall (which it wasn't), came over and apologized after a technical issue getting Patlabor to play; he was just an incredible person and one of the best staffers I have ever met at any convention.  I believe he was also staffing later during Fatal Fury 2 and Iria: Zeriam the Animation.  Would talk to people peeking in about what they were screening, later on when the room was fuller he would make jokes at just the right time during the films, and completely understood the vibe that a nostalgia room should have.  That Sunday morning and evening made the issues with registration on Thursday and Friday melt away in my mind - it was that enjoyable of an experience.  I wish I would have asked him his name (my one regret that year) to make sure he received the commendation he deserved.

< Has one more day to finish up sewing.
> Is taking a break from finishing up his own cosplay.
V Lining up for Day Zero? What time are you planning on arriving?

^ Absolutely! In terms of cosplay stuff I'm still most proud of my Dig Dug P3 All-Purpose Subterranean Demolition and Defense Drill (Namco X Capcom version) as it was my first time using insulation foam and it came out way better than I thought it would.  Far from perfect but damn I love it.  Otherwise a series of ceramic plates I'm painting based on reasonably obscure classic arcade games has been pretty satisfying to work on.
< Is awesome to write such a long reply.
> Really should get some sleep.
v Burning the midnight oil on this last run-up to con?

Dealers Room / Re: Your Shopping List
« on: May 19, 2015, 10:17:49 PM »
This is my first Fanime and I'm scared I'm going to get overwhelmed with all the things that I want to buy haha

Firefury Amahira has absolutely solid advice above.  Unless it's something you were specifically looking for at a price (or less) you were ready to pay up front, hold your spending in the dealer's hall until you've had a chance to go through once.

Advice I have is to not carry all your cash with you every day.  If you're going to con for all four days (plus Day Zero swap meet), spread out your carried cash accordingly.  This allows you to budget for food if that's part of your total spending and to keep from blowing your bankroll on the first "must have" thing you may see.  This is even more important if you are traveling from out of town.  Each night when I return home I replenish my "carry" amount with the "leave behind" amount before returning to con - it helps me to regulate my budget.  Last year I kept finding that I had a ton more money carrying over and by Sunday was able to buy a pricier item (for me) that I was on the fence about since the start of con.

Most importantly have fun.  The best parts of Fanime don't involve spending beyond the cost of your badge.

^ Home. I'm fortunate to have a 10 minute drive as a straight shot to and from con.
< Curious as well about DarkMoonlitStar's previous cosplays.
> Already planning cosplay projects for after this con, although my girlfriend and I really need to take a break for a bit.
V Is there a cosplay (or cosplays) that you did in the past that you have wanted to bring back and if so what?

5/19 update: we have formally announced our Arcade Machine List, which can be found in the 2nd post of this thread, or click below:,19941.msg483547.html#msg483547

Much appreciated and a great list this year.  Now to see if I'll win my bet that the P1 buttons on that Strikers 1945 III machine will still need new micros. :)

^ Feeling good - money set aside in the amount I was hoping to have saved, cosplay nearly complete, game plan ready to go.
< Being nervous is part of the fun (or so I tell myself).
> Spent the evening trying to argue how great a movie Johnny Mnemonic is.
V A reasonably obscure anime that you enjoy?

Glad to hear you'll be at swap yet again!

Okay, tentative plan is that my girlfriend and I will be at -

Friday's gathering as a Sugo Corporation pit crew from Future GPX Cyber Formula (1991 - 1998).

Saturday's gathering as a salaryman (wearing an SD shinkansen) and Tetsu-chan (railway conductor and mascot) from the Densha de Go! games (1996).  Tetsu-chan was always the in-game help character and the salarymen were from the advertising campaign for the PlayStation conversions of the arcade games.

Bumping it up, old school is awesome.
