yes, my sister and i were the 2 part costume of san and the wolf. i would love to go to fanime but too much is against me, including getting a ride, getting some one to attend to us (we cannot bend over or anything in costume!!!) how long we will have to endure the costume, how much it costs to get in (my sister and i would much rather spend $60 on new anime than pay to get in, i mean we'd spend all our money getting into the convention and not beable to buy a dang thing!) and the fact that finals are the week before meaning i'll be mentally worn out!!!

fanime is too big a thing to do on short notice, too many other people are invloved to make it happen and no one owes me any favors (i owe them!!!) i plan to go next year w/the wolf costume and this time all my ducks will be in a row!!!

i am going to wear the costume for the costume contest at sac anime in July if you want to see me there, i am already pre-paid for it. i am also entering the manga and art contest, i cannot enter the digital art contest cause i have no digital art programs.

please say you can prereg for one day, i know that at the moment you can only prereg for the whole weekend, if i came here earlier would i have been able to get a one day addmission cheeper??

any way i could be let in JUST for the costume contest net year for WAYYYYYYY cheep???

(in case you cannot tell, i'm broke!!)

i may pass on this one, its causing some family issues as my mom does not want me to go.

is there any other cosplay events comming up that are within driving distance of sacramento?

w/how complex this is turning out to be i think i will do fanime next year. i am retiring from the parade as i do not want to make anymore costumes and i hate doing repeats of old ones.

but i do want to show off my old costumes

i have
ryo-oki and ken-oki
shippo and kilala
Link and Epona
san and the wolf

this will be my first time at fanime. i have cosplayed before at the Japan Town anime parade. this year i won first place w/my 2 person princess mononoke costume of san riding a wolf. i do not want to retire the costume and have been looking for other chances to wear it. i plan to enter this years fanime costume contest but i am having issues getting a ride and planning this whole thing out and so i need to get some further info before committing to this.

for one thing what are the prizes like?

how many people come to this thing?

has the judging in the past seemed fair? i once entered a contest expecting to win, or if not me then 3 other people i thought had great costumes, turns out neither i nor those 3 won and the contest was actually rigged!!! the judge made the costume that won! at least at fanime you have to have MADE the costume yourself, not bought or rented it! and i have heard that this bad judging happens all too often.

does the contest really go on so late? i live in sacramento and have to drive home, or should i say get a ride home, i'd hate to make my dad drive home so late....and we cannot afford a hotel so staying the night is out of the question.

is there any lightrail/train or somthing that goes from sacramento strait to the convention area?

is the area we have to wait in warm? the costume is %80 fake fur and gets so hot! its also big and clumsy, i hope there is a ramp onto the stage as stairs are a royal pain in the butt!

this cosplay contest sounds very compicated, far more complex than the parade (where its free and ends in the afternoon) both in good ways and bad ways...

i want to enter but need to be convinced that its gonna be more fun than work, right now it sounds like work! :shock:

i hope i don't sound pessimistic, i'm just worried and a little stressed out about this as i really want to go but so much seems against me. i only just heard about fanime while at the parade, if i had known sooner i could have been prepared, a months notice is short noctice!!!

if any one can help answer my questions it would be much appreshated.

thank you for listening to me, it feels good to get my concerns off my chest.
