Okay...this maybe a dumb question...but why would you be walking up the stairs to your room instead of using the elevator?

If you have to walk to your destination while a creepy guy follows you, would you rather be at the stairs or inside a small elevator with no place to escape?


LMAO...tell me about it....I was along in the elevator at 5 am with this stalker looking guy...who pressed all the buttons so the elevator would stop at every floor.  WTF...then he got off on my same floor and just sat there...so I pretended I was on the wrong floor and went to another floor..LoL

Should have taken the stairs..LoL



Not cool! Suggestion for next time something like this is to get right back off the elevator and let the person ride alone in the elevator. You should have also reported this to the front desk so that they can send security to escort this guy out...especially if he wasn't a registered guest. It's for your and everyone else's safety.  :wink:


The best thing to do: do a cosplay with a weapon that's sturdy enough to withstand a beating. Girls are allowed to ceck guys if they are molested, and if telling stalkers to go away doesn't work, then usually if you seem like a tough girl, that does the trick.

Another good one is to get a MALE ESCORT with you at all times. Get a guy friend to hang out with your or something.  I found that when I was with another guy, other guys relegated to verbal affections, and I didnt have to pose with them at all for pictures.

Where to begin:

I had a final the day fanime started (8 am) I also had to move out of my dorm that very day too, not fun.

The person that had the room in his name at the convention couldn't attend, so we had to wait till around 10 pm before he faxed the hotel his information. Lost both my California ID and College ID for 3 hours (thank you who ever returned them) Friends were pissed because of the room situation. One of my friends brought over an uninvited unpaid guest, and he went out on the street and picked up some girl who also stayed in the room unpaid (the room was already filled with 5 people with out the two uninvited/unpaid guests. They both stayed all 3 nights. Those two kept kicking everyone out of the room for obvious reasons...

On the last day: My friend said he could give me a ride because we thought one of our people was getting a ride home with his girlfriend. Turns out he wasn't. So I somehow get the ass end of everything and end up taking Amtrak back while the unpaid uninvited guest got a free ride home.

Sorry if I rambled too much I love telling this story. Nothing wrong with the convention though, had a great time there. Just the room situation really blew.

1Well yeah.....friends totally ditched myself and one other at the artist row all day with their stuff (and trust me they had alot of it) so even if we wanted to shut down and leave, we couldn't...

2 Got yelled at by same friends with my afforementioned stranded friend for being 'screeching fangirls' during the Masq. Apparently we had high pitched screaming that gave them a headache?

3 Someone tore the sleeve on my Kagura (Frutis Basket) outfit and I had to pin it for the rest of the time I was there

4 Scary otaku 30 year olds followed two of us out of the Live Action PGSM showings and we had to hide in the bathroom..

5 Someone bought the tarepanda plushie I wanted.

6 Not enough money to buy the out of print Sailor Moon Season 1 boxset along with the season 2 I already own..(I'm lame I know)

and yeah...over all..the worst..

7 Scary guy outside the convention center made us talk to his parents on the phone...he was creepy and it was as late as it could get and we were supposed to convince his parents to let him stay....T_T

I think there also tends to not be much water to float IN...

Worst things?

1-Mariott messed up our room. They gave three girls a tiny room with a queen-size bed when we paid for a two-queen. Managed to fix this by making a stink about it, though we were put in smoking. Luckily, apparently there are VERY few congoers who smoke.

2-Both of my friends fell on the stairs, but who gets hurt? ME! Somehow I hurt my knee on... what... saturday? Whenever it was, I had to miss the Musicfest because I couldn't hobble all the way from my room to across the street. As a result, I stayed alone in my room for several hours. Luckily, I brought some ace bandages and was ok to drive all the way home.

3-We forgot that the hotel phone is EXPENSIVE. Hence, we made too many calls (many were complaints to parents about problem #1)  and subsequently, spent over two hundred bucks extra, for which I am STILL paying off my credit card.

Of all of those... I would say that getting hurt was the worst, because it made me miss ZZ.  :cry:

i was *this* close (pinches fingers together) to losing my memory card containing rpg and fighter data on it. i realized this when i saw the mem card slot on the ddr machine. i had to drag my literally half dead body back to e-gaming and knock on the door to have some guy let me in to recover said card. i almost puked on the way there, just thinking about all that hard gaming going to waste. luckily, it was still in the console where i left it. lesson learned: WATCH MY JUNK.

prior to this, i also lost my tekken 5 card...for the second time

Well the best way to not worry about film is to get a nice digital cam....and then get 256mb memory card.....at that point running out of "film" becomes VERY hard.....ESPECIALLY if you set it at like 800x600....

I learned to take my charger for my digital cam with me

I learned that ATM fees are expensive when compounded....thus making me need to take all my money with me at once. I could've bought at least TWO discount manga at the end with all those fees!! ;_;

I learned to wait until the last day of the con to buy manga....and to check THOROUGHLY for discounted manga.....buying Tenchi at 30% off does NOT compare to $3 manga ;_;

I learned that if I am going to buy a reverse blade sword....I need to check it first.....

I learned that if I want a sharp sword....I need to check just how sharp the blade REALLY is.  (Damn the fact that a chip on those drop forged blades were sharper then the blade itself!!)

I learned that asking a cos/crossplayer to dance....make sure they're FEMALE.....otherwise it leads to embaressing mistakes @.@

I learned that getting those authentic Naruto headbands is worth the hassle of making it FIT right....that cheap one I got just makes me feel empty now....

I learned that staying up all night one night having my state of mind acting AS IF I was on drugs....doesn't work the 2nd time....it just makes me waaaaay too sleepy ;_;

Hmm...what's in that fountain water anyway? If it's anything like SJSU's fountains, then I don't think you'd want to even touch it...

Apparently you haven't seen the guy just outside of the Karaoke room who was selling pb&j 'wiches and soda for $.25 each.

And they were good pb&j 'wiches.

I believe this happened at Fanime 04...

Well this guy wanted me to take a picture of him. He didn't turn the knob thing on his one-use camera so I got confused for a long time. He got pretty annoyed and asked someone else to take a picture of him. I felt dumb afterwards...
