Julia (Cowboy Bebop)

?At least one older cosplay of mine (probably either Lady Blackpearl [Legend of Mana] or Ulala [Space Channel 5], though I might squeeze in Eruca [Radiant Historia] for the SMT gathering)

I'm so happy to see posts about Cowboy Bebop!  Also, my vote is for Ulala.  Without a doubt!

"union regulations at SJCC"???????  SERIOUSLY?  barf!!!  How insanely illogical!  Let's make a system LESS efficient by following inane "union" rules.  ugh!  I really hope that is not the case! 

Well, I think everyone knows by now that the lines will be long.  Like I said before, waiting for hours was actually fun.  It was an interesting way to usher the weekend in.

Is it true that the non pre-reg people didn't have to wait very long?  Would it be worth it to just pay at the door?
I ran into a group of 3 girls and one girl on her own last year... no respectable Con will be without SOME ganguro!!
Hey!  I had to throw it out there... I imagine there will be a few.  No????

Perhaps there is an "art" to taking photos.  Cosplayers are there to show off their hard work and creativity and to be seen.  Photographers are there to help!  There is a social aspect to cons that is pretty awesome.  As long as there is respect and a basic understanding of basic social rules... it should be a brilliant collaboration!

I bring my camera and I am so totally blown away by the amazing creativity and work that I get caught up in wanting to capture it.  I also post my photos on flickr and love it when people find their photos and comment.  Photos are just a part of why I go, but it is a part for sure!

I don't know... it seems pretty simple to me...

Is there a place to post wants for vendors?  I have a small list of figures I am looking for... if vendors had a chance to see it, they could bring the pieces to the Con!!  Good idea????

Hello!  My favorite part of Fanime 2012 was meeting so many wonderful artists in Artists Alley.  I walked away with 6 amazing pieces and I hope to support the artists this year (2013) with commissions!  Is there a place where artists post their sites and their locations in the alley?  It's never too early to start planning!!!

Hello!  I am not a business... just a private collector who lives in San Jose and who hopes to meet other collectors this year.  Fanime 2012 was amazing and I thought I would reach out early to see if there is any interest.  My goal is to sell/trade figures but for actual meetups at Fanime 2013.  Listing all 500+ figures I have here would be a monumental task, but you can see my collection on here:

Respecting the rules of this forum, I am not sure how better to go about getting the word out... if you are going to be at Fanime 2013 and you are up for buying/trading... let me know!

The lines were INSANE!  And I live about a mile away from the convention center.  Luckily we met a lot of nice people and saw loads of great cosplay... so it wasn't THAT bad, but i really hope this year is better.
