I was thinking about holding a get-together for friends I met at Fanime next weekend or after, but finances (and the tendancy for social outings I host to fail) and the fact that I barely made any new friends kinda gives me second thoughts about that.

Acceptance is where I am. Planning for next year!

I was entirely confused when I had to get up for work the next day. "Is there an event I'm attending???" were my thoughts as a groggily drove away from my house.

No, Tired Me, just work.

Something similar happened to me.
When I woke up in my room, I thought I was still dreaming because all I could think about was being at Fanime.

... maybe I'm still in the denial stage.

I have the depression bad. D:

On the first night away from the con, I woke up at 2:30 AM in a pitch black room. My first thought was 'where am I?' or 'how did I get here?'. I ended up in this half sleep/trance thing and in my dream, people that I know told me that I fainted while I was in my fursuit at the convention. They then told me that they carried me to the room to rest and that I had missed the rest of the convention. D: I can't remember if my dream self cried or I cried when I was partly awake.

That was an odd state of mind. :P

Fanime Stages of Grief
-Denial: "Fanime is not over! I need to pick out a cosplay to wear tomorrow!"
-Anger: "Why does Fanime have to end?  This isn't fair!"
-Bargaining: "I'll do anything to have another day at Fanime!"
-Depression: "I'm so sad that Fanime is over.  I want to hole up in my room until 2013."
-Acceptance: "I can't wait 'til Fanime 2013!  I'm already planning my next cosplay!"

Seems like I'm still in the depression phase, hence this post.  What about you guys?  Has the post-con depression hit yet?

I think I have hit Depression.

Me and my friend decided that I was going to hide under the bed and she was going to hide behind the ironing bored in our hotel room until next fanime.

I'm between the depression and acceptance phases. I'm sad Fanime 2012 is over, but am already planning out 2013. ^^ I'm excited for next year's theme, which is Gothic Fairy Tale. :'D One thing comes to mind when I think of the theme, and it's definitely helping me plan out my cosplays. ^____^

I'm at acceptance since this year's Fanime wasn't that great. Plus I got a troop tomorrow so I can still be in costume. My only regret is not meeting more people than I could.

I'm in the same mood minus the cosplay. Also debating working as a dealer or being a volunteer.

I'm at Acceptance. This is possibly my eighth year at Fanime, so I'm not as affected than I was 5 years ago. Plus there was quite a bit of con drama going on with my group, so wouldn't call this my best year. Still loved it though, and already making plans for next year.

Where's the step where I just want to sleep for a year? :)

That would go under the depression stage.  Join the club!
Ah - but you see, staff undergo an entirely different kind of psychosis after FanimeCon. It's less "PCD", more "PCPTSD". Symptoms include confusion, desperate eating, and calling ConOps upon waking.

For example: last night, I woke up trying to figure out how we could schedule an additional panel for Asamiya-san.

I've now completed my transition to Acceptance - I have my next cosplay idea and the planning has begun.

Seeing as I could already wear a different cosplay every day next year (including Day 0), I don't know where I can fit it in, but it ought to be an interesting time planning my weekend in 2013 X'D

I live around San Jose and I pass by downtown often. Yesterday I drove by the convention center, saw the fanime banners still on the street lights, and shed a tear.

I never left anime. My surroundings simply morphed into an ugly, unanime form.
