I have been wanting to go to ComicCon for a few years now but cash has been tight as I have had to save up for my trip to GenCon in Indianapolis (third year going). Next year I am probably going to skip it and that will free me up for AX or ComicCon.

Fun note about GenCon: while it is primarily a convention for role playing games and board games, they have a hotel floor devoted to anime events. So it's like a mini anime convention. It even has its own artist alley.

My friends and I are road tripping to GenCon this year.  Gots me a Heroscape tournament to win.  I'll have to look into the anime events.  I remember they had showings and such last year,  but I never really looked into it in depth as it was my first year.

Besides that I've got BlizzCon and PAX on the agenda.  Driving to all of them.

Does anyone know what artists are attending Yaoi-con this year?

I've got a table and so do my friends but we're curious as to who else is attending

nikkiecole <-- My DA
I'm also acting as a representative for aka-shiro and kaze-hime and I have permission to sell for them.

My friends who are also attending with me are toypanda and riingo.

My friends are going to Comic Con and they are couch-surfing (staying at a random person that they met online's place). I am thinking about going to SacAnime because I have a friend who's never been to a con before and he wants to go.

If you are thinking about going next year, get a pass as soon as possible.  I had to wait in line ninety minutes las night to pre-reg for next year.

too bad you didnt take a picture. Back in 2008, I was trying to get into the crowd behind AOTS while they were filming live, but without a awesome costume, it was kinda impossible :P

Too bad I could wander around as Russell, I think people would get a kick out it at Comic Con.

Here's hoping for 2011. Someone post a Link here ASAP once theyr registration opens [and sells out again in days] like it did back in 2009. :P

Kind of hard to take pictures at 65 MPH whilst your driving.  But I do have pics and Videos of FLynn's Arcade, and the world of TRON exhibit  (Disney must've put out the bucks for this).  I'll post early next week.

Even if I was a Blizzard fan I wouldn't go to BlizzCon. For the price of going to that once, I could register for 3 years of Fanime, or for Sakura-Con, Fanime, and AX for one year. :P

Yosh, I've decided. I'm going to Kin-Yoobi Con, and I'm going to enter myself in the Anime Dating Auction on Sat. But, I don't know who to go as. For those who happened to see me at Fanime and even if you didn't, could you help me out? Of these three One Piece ladies, who would you want to date? ^^;

Nami - Water Seven version
Boa Hancock - Amazon Lily version
Nico Robin - Thriller Bark version
 Thank you, and hope to see some of you there!

P.S.-

I wonder if I can have my own 360 setup (or at least bring my own games) at Kin-Youbi Con? Seeing as their gaming room was like 90% fighters and 10% rhythm games last year, I wanna throw some shmups into the mix.

 Go their website: http://www.gzronline.com/convention.htm and send them an e-mail. The event coordinator is very nice and will answer any questions or concerns that you have.

I definitely wanna try to make Kin-Yoobi this year.  So far I've been to five cons, three years at Fanime and two at AOD in San Francisco.

Might break out the Mugen (Samurai Champloo) costume again, since I've only worn it once.

Only problem is getting there, since for multiple reasons I can't drive.  Also, I'm not sure if any of my friends would be willing to go, since I'm way more into cosplay and cons than them.  And I'd rather not take multiple modes of public transportation if I can help it.

To those going to Kin-Yoobi Con, can you let me know how it goes?  I have to work that weekend and can't attend but would like to get an estimate on attendance and on the Artist Alley for next year.  I'm selling for kaze-hime, aka-shiro, toypanda and myself at Yaoi-con and a few other cons that I know they'd do well at, but I don't know much about Kin-Yoobi con other than its pretty small.

Any info is much appreciated! Thanks ^^;

Even if I was a Blizzard fan I wouldn't go to BlizzCon. For the price of going to that once, I could register for 3 years of Fanime, or for Sakura-Con, Fanime, and AX for one year. :P

The trick to BlizzCon is selling what you get.  Back when they handed out beta keys, it was easy enough to make money  from the whole thing.  Also some of the BlizzCon exclusive merchandise can be turned over for a healthy sum.  I think I was able to make a hundred bucks reselling the Starcraft Poker Set.

Also it's a fun chance to meet guild mates and make a party time.
