Has anyone actually gotten married/proposed while on stage?

There was a proposal last year during the BW Ball - the groom-to-be contacted us ahead of time to request "Helpless" from "Hamilton" as a dance song, then after the song played, the floor was cleared save for that one couple. We knew we'd get a Ball proposal one of these years! :D

Oh wow, that's way back!  I do still have the Legato coat, but it is like wearing a victorian house on a summer day, so it doesn't come out often.  I don't have any other panels this year.  in 2016, I did Cosplay: Overdoing It one night, Cosplay Fitness the next night, and then Nerd courting on the third night.  I was SO TIRED.  So this year I decided to just do Nerd Courting, as it's the most fun.  Plus, with work taking up more of my time, I have not had time to make any new costumes this year, so I didn't want to do a panel.  I am working on a life sized puppet of Mordin Solus from Mass Effect 2 for next year though.  It's going to be a little bonkers, and will be a great costume to feature in an Overdoing It panel again.  There are actually a few of us working on Mass Effect cosplays for next year, so it should be a fun time.

Good morning old schoolers!

FanimeCon is two weeks away, which means the Old School Cosplay Gathering is two weeks away... scary. Also means I need to get to washing and styling wigs! In addition to the Old School Cosplay Gathering, we will also be hosting a Vintage Anime panel / competition on Saturday morning at 10am in Panels 4 - because you all know how much I love anime openings.

Speaking of which, starting Friday's old school anime OPs with a pretty huge one. While the original Mobile Suit Gundam wasn't as popular as one today may assume, sales of the related model kits kept the franchise going and the whole thing blossomed into one of the cornerstones of anime.

Continuing on, let's say mainstream today with the anime continuation of a series that is still going strong. I really wish the beginning of this era of Dragon Ball Z (young adult Gohan's everyday life) would be revisited.

Closing out today with some year 2000 love. Relevant too, as a sixth mainline Sakura Taisen video game was recently announced to be in development.

Starting this Saturday's old school anime OPs with my personal favorite of the Cyber Formula series. This whole franchise was, and still is to a certain degree, very popular in Japan but never caught on elsewhere. Only the first series had an official English subtitled release and is long out of print. Fanime 2018 Guest of Honor Ryotaro Okiayu voiced Franz Heinel (Sturozech Project driver at the time of Zero) throughout all five series.

Continuing with a fan favorite, both in Japan and abroad.

Celebrating An Era - 1970's! Ashita no Joe (1970)

Closing out Saturday with a fandom dividing series. Okay, I'm overstating that. Love it, hate it, or remain indifferent toward it, Macross II is a strange one that is considered to be a parallel timeline outside of Macross cannon. I think Macross II is okay at best, has some good moments, but ultimately is an unsatisfying follow-up to Macross. Some good music on the soundtrack though, including the title theme.

Celebrating An Era - 1990's! The Super Dimension Fortress Macross II: Lovers Again (1992)

Starting Sunday with an awesome series that was crafted as a labor of love and a celebration of an earlier era of Japanese media. Both English dubs are included in this video and my preference has always been for the older (the first one played here) dub as it has a lot more personality in my opinion. If you have Giant Robo on DVD, the old dub is actually a hidden track, use your player's audio option to select it.

Continuing today with pure fan service. That aside, Aika is a pretty decent little OVA with slick animation work, good character design, and some actual plot. I believe this is the third or fourth opening (they all had slight differences), and has an awesome of-its-era opening theme. A prequel OVA was released in 2007 (Aika R-16) and a sequel OVA to the prequel in 2009 (Aika Zero).

Celebrating An Era - 1990's! Aika / Agent Aika (1997)

Closing out the weekend with a solid anime revival of an old tokusatsu property. Looking back I'm still surprised this aired on American television. Then again, Boogiepop Phantom aired on freaking TechTV, so there you go.

Until next Friday, when we'll be a week away from the gathering!

Okay so depending on what my Friday looks like, I'm not entirely sure if I'll be able to go to this one but if that's the case, I'll definitely go to the Sunday Disney gathering instead

Not a problem! The Disney extended family is hosted by me, and this year the disney is hosted by a good friend of mine prettysmol.
