If you have ever seen Yumi King's videos on youtube she does precisely this in her panels. (Her side channel for cooking is Yummy King). Apart from having her as a guest, I also thought demonstrations would be a great idea

and the shuttles were terrible :/

*I should add that it was stated by the chairdude himself they moved shuttles from other hotels to prioritize those going to the double tree and even that was not enough to meet demand. he did not offer to even consider making changes if they were to continue "silver island"

Who's excited? Fanime is less than a week away! Don't miss this chance to join fellow Black Clover fans, even if you aren't in cosplay!

We have also made a handy chart that will help you determine which songs are suitable for different events:

So this chart applies to Fanime as well as AX?

I'm going to remain optimistic about it.  The con has more than doubled in size since I started attending every year.  With Clockwork Alchemy flying on their own now, that opens up room there for things to expand.  I've stayed at the Double Tree many times, and can vouch for the shuttle service being very reliable and frequent... if someone hasn't seen the shuttles before, they're simply not looking in the right place.  The schedule has always been available at the information tables.

I like that they're trying new things.  And if it doesn't work out, they don't have to do it that way again.  No big deal.

Paper schedules lol? That would explain why there is 0 info available online. No signs posted for pick up and drop off either? Oh boy, now I really am nervous.

Um.... there have been signboards where all the shuttles stop on the side of the Hilton (Almaden Ave) for years now, with each route clearly marked.  Additionally the schedules are posted there as well and I believe they've been in the pocket guide for a few years now too.  The shuttles pick up and drop off over there for good reason, they don't have to deal with the traffic in front of the convention center.

Oh that's great news! I asked around and have only gotten "I've heard there was a shuttle or something" as an answer. I had asked a volunteer in the Marriott how to get to the Fairmont and they told me I was I the Fairmont, so I was pretty lost until I just gave up and went to to stand in lines. I now see the 3 stop markers from the digital guide from last year, but maybe they will stick some shuttle info in there as well this year for other nervous newbies. As far as I knew, the DoubleTree was a myth lol. Although it looks like it will stay a myth as I'm not about that 18+ life. The update said that the shuttle will be 24 hours. Is that normal, or also new with Silver Island? Might be worth it just for that.

They have now mentioned that there will be increased shuttle service. I have not ever actually seen a Fanime shuttle (despite standing outside for hours) so I would like to see a more specific schedule. I did plan on utilizing the shuttle for my hotel, but now am worried about the reliability :(

Anyway, I have acquired some fun prizes for those in attendance. Just a few more and we are all set. Get hype people!

It is not usually recommended to attempt this  :'(

Apart from cosplay gatherings, unless you are willing to approach potential friends and manage to obtain contact info (like Instagram name) in a single meeting it is not likely to happen. Most people come to conventions with friends or to meet friends they already have. It may feel quite difficult to approach someone who appears to be with a large group of friends already. However, you might try posting on the Facebook page so you can make friends prior to the convention and have people to meet there.

If you do go to cosplay gatherings, that is the easiest method. At that point you know you already have something in common with the person and thus an easy conversation. As long as you are polite, there should be no issues, just remember the potential friend may be just as or even more nervous than you. You do not have to be cosplaying to attend the gatherings! Just make sure you actually do follow up with people once you get the contact info (or remember to actually tag them in photos) or have a plan to meet again at a certain panel or event. It is really no different from making friends in any other situation, you have to put in effort either way. If you are shy, go ahead and practice a few conversation starters and make sure to smile when appropriate and make occasional eye contact. Keep in mind your body language and look approachable.

Make sure your hygiene is on point too. I have totally not texted people back over bad breath-- you want to make a good first (only) impression. You could also try various methods to draw people to you like playing games or something.

Happy hunting!

Hotel and Facilities / Re: Re: Fanime 2019 Roommate Thread
« on: February 10, 2019, 08:41:22 AM »
!!Roommates Wanted!! !!Roommates Found!!

Hello, my name is Sarah and I am an otaku. You can find me on FB at RebornRevolution & IG @sunflower.ks I am an age between 21 and 30.

My hotel is the Fairfield Inn and Suites from Thursday-Monday. This hotel has free breakfast, as well as free parking, and shuttle access to the convention center. I may end up driving everyday if I don't like the shuttle, so we may also carpool if desired.

The price is $300/bed. I have one bed for 1-2 people. I would like to keep a calm and "Christian" room, so I don't want to squeeze in a lot of people. I require a non-refundable $50 deposit for each person via paypal. If you would like to pay by card, I require full payment by May 16th via paypal. I will refund any amount over the actual cost at checkout. If you plan to use cash, the full amount is required at check in.

As I already mentioned, I would like to maintain a "Christian" room so everyone can be comfortable. No smoking, no alcohol, and no cursing. Please maintain basic hygiene i.e. no being gross, dirty or smelly. Female or Male is ok. Parent and child is ok. I don't care as long as the above rules are followed.

Contact me via Facebook or Instagram for fastest response, or message me here.


Also, I will be driving up from Fresno if anyone wants to carpool.

Have a great day!
