+ Introduction: Hi my name is Kelly.  I'm 21 and a college student at MJC. I'm pretty chill. This will be my first time staffing at Fanime... super excited :D
+ Hotel Information: I'd like to go somewhere within walking distance
+ Costs: I can pay whatever percentage of the room, though it'd be nice to split evenly with everyone, cuz it's nice to save what money we can right?
+ Requirements: Up to the head of the room. I'm cool with rules and adendums. I'm all about respecting people's space and belongings.
+ Contact: Email me at [email protected] or facebook message me:
+ Miscellaneous: it'd be nice to have a place to park my car, since that'll be how i'm getting there. i'd prefer a bed, but i can floor it if necessary. I'm cool with partying, drinking, smoking. that's all good with me, but i don't smoke.. as long as you don't puff it right in my face, i'm good. also, i'm a little nervous meeting new people, bit shy at first, but once i get used to you i'll be cracking jokes and goofing off ^_^
They say there is no such place as Paradise. Even if you search to the ends of the Earth, there's nothing at all. No matter how far you walk, it's just the same road, it just goes on and on. But in spite of that...Why am I so driven to find it?


My name is Aria. My roomate and I are in search of a room to stay from Friday night to Sunday morning (23rd-25th). We're very average people and we have no particular needs. If we have to sleep on the floor, that's fine. We're looking for some place, preferably, within walking distance of the SJCC.
As it stands it does not look like either of us will cosplay so we will not be brining much but clothes for two days. We don't drink, don't smoke, don't party, we're pretty collected so it would be great if we could match up with someone/or someones who could sync with that. We're not looking for any hotel partying, or clubbing away from home. Just some good 'ol fasion Con-fun.
Carissa, who is my roomate, is a college student and I am a bookseller for Barnes and Noble we are both 23 y/o. I'm not really sure what else there is to say. It'd be nice to make some roomates and come out of the weekend as friends, but it's not necessary. We will not be there to take over your room and make your weekend hell, lol. We just need someplace to crash for two nights. amiright? haha. If you have any questions or concerns you can just email me [email protected] and we can keep in contact all the way up until the day of.
We've already pre-registered so there's pretty much no backing out.

We would prefer to pay cash on the day that we get there. Ideally, meeting at the hotel room and exchanging cash for keys. (one for each of us, if that's possible -though it's not a demand or anything. We just like the souvenirs.). If you're interested please let me know.

Looking for a room

- 23 year old male. Name is Roy but I'll go by Al or Aleril. I always stay clean each day and take a shower every night. I don't drink, smoke or am particularly loud. I keep everyone's stuff to themselves and while I do like to talk I won't be a bother.

- This is my second Fanime and like 10th con in general
- Looking for a place within decent walking distance
- Will mostly spend time outside of the hotel, using the room mostly for sleep and a main hub.
- Willing to sleep on the floor if that's all that's left.
- Only bringing one suitcase, no cosplay stuff.
- Will pay in cash. Never flaked on anyone because that's a dick move bro.

- Contact me on Skype at auron_guardian2, email is [email protected], facebook is



Is anyone here have space for one person from Monday to Tuesday only? The ACE station does not operate on memorial day so I'll have to wait till Tuesday in order to depart back home. All I would need is a single space, be it floor, bed etc, as long as its not quite far from the train tracks.

Looking for a Room!

Name: Eli. Also known as Jun, JuJu, or Junior. However you please.

Days Needed:If at all possible, Day -1 to Day 5.Or Day 0 to Day 4. Prefer Day 5. I can always find a room on my own to stay prior to Day 0. Never been to Fanime before, but have ventured to AX twice, and a couple of smaller cons.

Spaces Needed: 1 for myself. I don't know much about any of my friends attending this year or if attending at all.

Preferred Hotel: Any hotel WITHIN a mile to the convention. I have stayed in hotels right withing walking distance to the convention and have stayed in hotels quite a distance away, 3 miles being the most.

Description of Myself:I'm all over the place to be honest. I'm quiet when needed. Observant and respectful.  But I'm mostly loud and fun loving. I look mean, but I'm naturally kind hearted. I love to have fun and love to enjoy company of others unless stated otherwise.

Age: 23

Gender: Male.

Smoker/Drinker: Yes to both. Situational smoker. Occasional drinker. However, if the host says neither inside the room, I can come to an agreement, though I genuinely prefer someone who is okay with alcohol. That being said, I'm not a drunkard of the annoying, stupid and violent type. I like to feel a vibe. So if you are okay with me being tipsy at your permission/discretion, I would hug you for life.

Sleeping habits:I generally am a heavy sleeper...though i suffer from sleep disorder known as insomnia. So with that in mind, I am more or less a cat. I take naps whenever I can. xD If I have to share a bed with anyone, I would appreciate it if I didn't have your hand or foot in my face. Thank you very much.

Anything else: I am a myriad of mischief. A photographer, an artist and all around lover of music.

Preferences of Desired Roommates:I don't have any preferences that are high priority or pet peeves.

Age range: Any age range is fine AS LONG AS THE HOST AND SPECIFIC INDIVIDUALS have come to an AGREEMENT.

Gender: Male or Female is no big deal.

Smokers/Drinkers: Either one is fine. If you smoke, cool. If you drink, great.

Sleeping habits: As stated above, to elaborate, as long as you don't kick my face in your sleep, I'm okay with anything. I'm pretty tolerant.

Anything else: Not much. Any questions, you can email below.

Hi, I'm looking for a room for fanime. I'll be driving there from socal, and I'll just be bringing the basics with me. :)

Best way to reach me is by email: [email protected]

[update 5/13]

+ UPDATE INFO:  We had a roommate back out on us at the last second so we would really like to get another one!!  2 of the four nights (Thurs and Sun), we only have three people staying in the room currently, so those 2 nights you are guaranteed a bedspace (or couch, if you prefer). 

+ Hotel Information: Hyatt Place San Jose Downtown, 2 DOUBLE BEDS + couch.  Check-in is Thursday night, Check-out is Tuesday; I'm flying back to the east coast on Tuesday, but as of right now, I'm the only person who is staying that night.  You are welcome to keep your stuff in the room on Monday until you have to leave, and since we don't have to check out Monday, you can pack a bit more leisurely.
+ Costs: This will depend on how many nights you are staying!  2 nights for example would be $58.  The cost for all four nights is $105!  You can pay me with PayPal or cash at the con, but I need the money by the first day you are staying.
+ Requirements:

  • WOMEN ONLY.  This is not negotiable.  If you have to ask if your circumstance could be an exception, the answer is most likely no.
  • 18+ very strongly preferred.
+ Contact: PM me here for details.  It would be awesome if you could tell me your age and give me a link to your fb so I can add you to the group I made to organize the room.  I will also give you my phone number before the con.
+ Miscellaneous:  There will be some drinking going on in this room, and some nights we may be out late.  If you like going to bed early and dislike alcohol, this may not be a great room for you.

I'm currently looking for 2 female room mates.  I already have one, so in total there will be 4 people in the room.*

+ Hotel Information: I currently have a room with a king sized bed at the St. Claire.  check in is Friday May 23rd and check out is Tuesday May 27th.  ( That means you don't have to deal with packing on Monday morning and the stress of check out lines! Hurray for fully enjoying the last day!)  There is one bed so we'll have to share.  I will -TRY- my best to at least bring along one camping mattress of some sort.  (Note: I Am on the wait-list for the Fairmont so roommates will have to be alright with staying at either )

+ Costs:  The cost will be $100 per person.  I will accept payment through paypal, or in person, in cash.
You MUST PAY IN FULL at the before or at the beginning of the convention.  In other words, I won't accept "I can pay half now and then I can send you the rest when I get my next paycheck" or anything similar.

Female only, please.

Non smoking.  Even if you only smoke outside, I'm extremely sensitive to smoke even if it's just the smell on clothing.

18+ is preferred.   If you are under 18, I will have to meet your parents or guardian.  Just a quick hello down in the lobby will be fine.

Respect hotel property

Respect each other's property.  Don't move, touch, use things without permission.

Shower.  With soap.   More then once during the course of the weekend.

Try your best to keep the room somewhat clean.  This can be hard with cosplayers, but at the very least, let's have it to where we can move around without killing ourselves, shall we?

There will be no curfew, but if your coming in after midnight, please do so quietly in case others are trying to sleep.

do NOT under circumstances bring people up to the room without permission or give your room key to another person.

+ Contact:  Please contact me through PM.

* There will be one extra person in the room for one night.

I'll be buying a cake for us to share from Bijan Bakery.  Most likely on Sunday .

Also, I'll pick up food from Safeway which will be for everyone to share. 

I'll be flying in on Friday, and my flight is suppose to land in San Jose at Noon.  I should be at the hotel by 1:00 PM ( It depends on factors such as how long it takes luggage to arrive, etc.  )   I will exchange contact information with everyone so we can keep in touch.

I look forward to hearing from everyone! Thank you!

Fanime 2014 Cosplays:
The Black and Silver Steampunk

My Cosplay Page


Need a room:
+ Introduction: Hi! I'm Kenny (19 years old). My boyfriend Shane (also 19) and I are looking for a room to stay in for Fanime. We're both very polite and tidy and we keep our messes to ourselves and clean up after ourselves. I'm very social, friendly, and polite, and Shane, also very polite and friendly, is very quiet and likes to keep to himself a lot. We're both very good hotelmates and probably won't make much of a cosplay mess, as he doesn't cosplay and I'm doing very simple cosplays. And we're both very hygienic and we keep the PDA at a very minimum.

+ Hotel Information: We would LIKE to stay as close to the con as possible, but we're very flexible with location. We'd be arriving Friday, staying Friday night, Saturday night, Sunday night, and leaving Monday. We can pay $50-60 (give or take) each and pay up front.

+ Requirements: MUST be trans friendly (we're both trans guys) and MUST be very very respectful of pronouns (he/him/his)). A few slip ups are okay, we're not jerks and we'll politely correct you and leave it at that, no hard feelings and no harm done. However, please DO NOT deliberately misgender us or ask us any personal questions (especially if we don't know you very well). Also if possible please keep us stealth and don't go telling people that we're trans, PLEASE. We've dealt with this in the past and it's just uncomfortable.

+ Contact: I can be contacted by email ([email protected]) or via facebook (Kenneth Eugene, my preferred method of contact) and I am willing to give out my cell phone number for easier contact methods but I'm not gonna post it on a public forum.

+ Miscellaneous: Uhhhh, if you guys are cool, we have a hookah? It's just vapor and it's legal (if you're 18+ but we're not gonna tell if you're not) and it's non addictive, has no nicotine, and is pretty safe. If you have any other questions you can feel free to ask me. Also if you need more than just us, we have two friends who were gonna stay with us until we ran into financial issues and couldn't afford to get our own room, so I can put you in contact with them if you need four people instead of two.


Looking for a room!

+ Introduction  Hi, my name is Brendan and this will be my first year attending the con!  I'm 26 and male.  I'm really organized and clean and have no problem keeping all my stuff out of peoples' way.  I'm really respectful of other peoples space and want the same from other people.  I don't "party" anymore, but I don't have a problem with being at a party room.  I don't smoke or drink anymore, but it doesn't bother me if other people do and I sleep through a decent amount of noise (slept through a powerful earthquake more than once) so that's not an issue.

+ Hotel Information  Like everyone else, I'm looking for a hotel near to the convention center.  I'm also planning on bringing a cooler with food from home and ice packs.  I'm hoping there's a room I can find with a mini-fridge so I can cycle out the packs to keep stuff cold, if not I'll just suck it up and buy some ice.  Depending on how much it costs, I'm willing to do one or two nights.  I'm hoping to keep it under 100$ for either Fri-Sat or Sat-Sun, or both if possible.

+ Additional If you need to talk to me via Skype or something, that's not an issue.  I will be checking the forum regularly, so if you want to contact me, please send me a PM for contact info and I'll give you ways to contact me.

Hi Everyone ... Well it looks like I maybe in need of a room for Fanime after all, at least for Sunday.

Introduction: My name is Beth and I am planning on attending Fanime and a dance competiton all in the same weekend in San Jose :) Gonna be so tired going back and forth between the two, but it'll be worth it. Anyway I thought we had a room for arrival friday and departure on monday, but the reservation is only for Friday and Saturday nights, and now it looks like the director may not be attending the competition any longer (who I was rooming with), so I don't know if the room is going to fall through completely. So a little about me ... I am a 30 year old female, that doesn't smoke or do drugs.  I am an occasional cosplayer and do plan on doing a little cosplay mainly on Sunday and Monday.

Hotel Information: So anyway I am in need of a room definitely for Sunday night, but I would just like to find a room for Friday and Saturday nights as well if one is available too cover my bases. Even if I do not end up staying there the first two nights, I am definitely willing to help with the cost of the room to gaurentee me the spot if I should need it those nights. Does that make sense? So any rooms available for late arrival on Friday (can't leave until I get off work at 4:00 and it is then a 5 hour drive) and departure on Monday? I would like to be pretty close to the convention if possible.

Requirements: No real requirements that I can think of, but preferably roomates that do not smoke or do drugs.

Contact: You can reach me at [email protected]
