Craziest thing for me was sitting at an Artist's Alley table with my friends and being asked for a commission.  You see... I'm not an artist.  But she paid me anyway!  Thanks, Kingdom Hearts crazed girl!!  : 3

Someone ran up to me and thought that I was hurting the totoro on-screen (there was a slide with a totoro and myself on the plasma displays). I told them that it said that I love totoros (since 2005), yet they insisted that I was making some threat... Uhh...  yeah @_@

Let's see (for now):

- "Accidently" triggering the fire alarm by spray painting the wiimote cosplay.  Oops.  Luckily, the staff at the hotel didn't fine us.
- Being glomped by 3 random girls for pretty much 30 minutes or more.  I couldn't escape that at all.
- A friend of mine borrowing my Wiimote to play Max300 in DDR Supernova.  Nuff said.
- Someone showing a white stain after getting out of the Hentai panel.  I kid you not.

well, its not crazy but it fits here.

i was volunteering saturday afternoon at artists' alley manning the doors, making sure that only those with badges were able to go inside. all of a sudden, this girl just starts to run right at me, looking like she was gonna tackle me, but quickly stops about three feet in front of me, bows down to me, then gets up and runs off.

that left me thinking 'WTF?!' for the rest of the day.

A lot of people here seem to have been "glomped". Sorry if this is noobish of me to ask but what's a glomp? (I'm thinking its like a hug?)  And did you have to cosplay to get glomped?


Yes, that's basically what a glomp is. ^_^ But funner than a normal hug. Sometimes feels more like a tackle. xD

And of course you don't have to be in cosplay to get glomped! Glomps are for everybody yo. x3


I was just asking cause I didn't cosplay but I didn't get glomped.  :(  Sounds fun though..

A glomp is like a hug but more violent. Because of this, a lot of people don't enjoy being glomped by random strangers, so you have to either have a sign/shirt asking for them, or encounter someone who's asking for them and tell them yes in order to be glomped.

Craziest thing for me? UNO, definitely.

Actually, glomps can be considered assault, especially if the person isn't asking for them. If you're not expecting them, they are NOT fun. Especially if your costume has limited vision and is top-heavy.

I'll have to agree on this one, some people don't like to be glomped, or even touched for that matter, and alot of people can get injured if they're golmped without warning. I've herd of times when the glompie had to be taken to the hospital.

Not only that, but a glomp can also aggravate something that may already be bothering the glompee.  For example, there were times when one of my ankles was bothering me, and I was thankful for not being a glomp victim because I'm sure that a glomp could've made things worse with the sudden shifting of weight on my feet and ankles :(

The moral of the story: ask before you glomp :D

So true, a friend of mine that cosplayed as Vincent (FF7) had earlier concerns about being glomped since she didn't want her gauntlet to break from a reckless glomp.

Bringing my boombox (you saw/heard it, there was only one) and having con ops tell me to turn it up more than once, hell more than zero times! :D

Also, drama involving friends and the dance and the police etc... <.< still not sure what all that was.

Yup, it's another one. So my fellow fanime attendees, tell us your craziest stories at Fanime 2007!

Here's mine.

Monday: I entered for prizes on Stage Zero, but I had no idea it would be a dance off!! It was my first one ever and I felt WRONG, VERY WRONG. I can't dance for crap.

Saturday: Nothing too unusual, except my gothic oujisama helped me stood out more than the last couple of years. Thanks to my nifty card parasol, I became quite popular for once.

Sunday: Dressed as Allen Walker from D Gray Man, scared some people on the bus ride to the Con. Played frisbee with Bleach characters and glomped rather painfully. After the convention, while waiting for the bus, a creepy Mexican old guy (I think he might have been drunk) came up to out of the blue and started saying stuff in broken english, like I was pretty and he started holding my hand o_o. Luckily, someone was nearby to save me. Downtown San Jose is creepy at night.

Monday: Dressed as Zombie L. Successfully got sweets from random people. Also met some Naruto cosplayers and hanged out with them.


lol But it was awesome of you to come up on my stage! Us Stage Zero staff applaud you and thank you very much for the entertainment n volunteering for one of our games ^_~

Heh.  I learned that the hard way since, to be honest, I wasn't expecting it.  I lost count of the glomping since it nearly destroyed my costume. :(

LMAO!!! Also gettin tackled off the side of the stage sometimes from random fans and cute girls n hot women while I was hosting... hmmm... lots more but those are the ones that come to mind at the moment ^_~

I find it weird that I had planned to get glomped at the con, yet I was the one who was doing all the glomping...
