I'll be showing up as Femme Malz again, improved of course ^_^ unless something changes in the next year XP. anyone have any pictures from 2012's gathering?
I was the femme Malzahar (League of Legends) (Purple scarf, bright blue contacts) I had a gender bent group of heros with me. If you could PM me the picture links I would be very grateful!

I hope someone snagged a few shots of my cosplays,
since I seem to fail at doing that on my own.

Thursday: Android 18 [ DBZ ] [ ref ]
I was in the swap meet selling things with my Android 17.

Friday & Saturday: Karkat [ Homestuck ] [ ref ]
I had a black sickle with a white stripe on the outside with me.
I was running around with a grey Equius, most likely being very loud.

Sunday: Kneesocks [ Panty and Stocking ] [ ref ]
I was with a Scanty, and we were wearing their school uniforms during the evening.
Later we changed and my Scanty was in a white wedding dress and I was in black and white formal attire.

If anyone has any pictures of anything that sounds familiar above,
It would be awesome if I could steal them from you, with permission and credit given of course~

Did you get me?

Friday: Ghost and Wolverine/Logan
Saturday: Ghost and Wolverine/Logan
Sunday: Black Cloaked Ezio with a Lightsaber
Monday: Ghost from MW2

Thank You!!! ^_^
not sure if thats you, but thats a logan!
So I am hoping that people have:
1) Pictures of the protesters on Saturday with that beautiful orange haired girl that was helping *cough*me*cough* in that blue dress, preferably whilst I was dancing
2) Bleach Gathering/Shonen Jump Gathering. I was the only Orihime at Jump and the one that kinda took it over since B needed to sleep/recover/wash off protester slime. I was the shorter school girl orihime at the Bleach gatherings.
Also, any Scott Pilgrim or Pokemon would be appreciated!

In 2009 I cosplayed a character with a baseball bat, but the bat was a home-made REPLICA bat. What I mean by that is, the dimensions are smaller than that of a factory baseball bat and it is not made out of Oak/Birch wood, it's made out of Balsa wood (the kind used for model air planes). It's very light and somewhat fragile and if dropped on a hard floor might actually snap.

here is an image of my prop:

It looks like it could be real, which obviously is the effect I wanted. But I was wondering, given the actual construction of my prop, is it allowed?
Going by our props policy, it is still a wooden bat, and the answer should be no.
I have a question about the bat thing, what if it is a wiffle ball bat or a bat made out of paper mache and then painted or treated to look like wood. would either of those work?

What if it makes noise? I'm trying to find one for kids so it's not threatening but they make noise.
I'm having the hardest time trying to find something x.x
How about this
I am still just a rookie, but I don't think noise would be smart, as in if you make a noise that sounds like a gun in the middle of San Jose or in the middle of the con center, it could possibly start a panic and get you in trouble. I would really recommend Aelia's suggestion of molding a wooden or styrofoam gun, or modding a water gun and leaving a few parts obviously fake, including the tip. I would also recommend the handle, where your hand can cover it if you are posing, but when it is holstered, that it is very obviously neon/clear see through and FAKE. This gives you less trouble from various rovers, and will make fanime easier for everyone and happier overall.

If you have a prop that you want to show off that is very realistic, I would suggest doing a private photo shoot OFF grounds and preferably not in a public place, or joining the masquerade.
I'm Pokemon trainer gold! (female)
I will have my Tohru costume this year and will attempt to make it!
I'm afraid prior obligations do not allow me to run this gathering, but I am going as Tsubaki this year! And would be very interested in attending this gathering!
as long as I can get my wig, I will be Orihime (school uniform) this year and plan to attend the gathering, YAY!
yup, did anyone know how much it went for? Just curious...

didn't this start in 06? I remember playing in 06. ^_^ unfortunately this year I didn't get around to the game all... T_T booooooo. I say a gathering is definitly in order
Oy, glomping isn't always stupid, its how some people act that is. I would just like to point out that I have seen MUCH more stupid things than glomping happen at fanime.
Case in point:
       Fanime, 06
                Late I believe saturday night/uber early sunday morning, there was a very inebriated man in the halls, where everyone hangs out due to the large amount of otaku with insomnia, who sat down, spread his legs, and told people to kick him in a rather sensitive area for the males, or so I hear. After a short amount of time, there is a large mob, happily treating that area as you would a soccer ball. I have no idea how long this lasts, but I have a fairly good idea that with that night, he is out of the gene pool.

IMO, the glompee is equally responsible as the glomper. if the glompee is aware of the potential tackle, said person can simply give a heads-up, and ideally it would be avoided.
ideally, yes. But the glomper holds all the responsiblity, and there are plenty of glompers who don't listen. So your ideal honestly is out the window.

Has anyone tried running? XD Surely I would.
heh, doesn't always work. Some people take that as a give chase signal, like with dogs. >.< lol gah, If i wasn't so tired i'd write up some basic rules for glomping (I like to glomp, but not harm people, so I know a few basic rules of thumb that are kinda common sense, but whatever) gah, tomorrow I suppose

i think they already exist; people were wandering the halls on sunday night carrying/holding "hug me/glomp me" signs, and they were there in droves.

how about a little corner(and i do mean little) in the hallway set up so if people wanted to be glomped/hugged/whatever, they go stand there and wait for said hug/glompage so they dont end up blocking the walkway; call it a "glomp corner", if you will....
bad idea, I guarentee you, it would devolve into an orgy. At least if the people who I know show up it will XP

re: the signs thing.  What would be better would be that those who want to be glomped bring their own signs stating so.  Otherwise, it would be safe to assume that the person in question does not want to be glomped.  No expense to the con whatsoever, other than coming down on those glomping folks without a sign giving permission.

it was really nice...though it made me sad at the same time: "GAH! I missed that! And that too, THEY HAD HIM AT A PANEL! DARN IT!"
Good marketing stradgey though

Didn't we already discuss this chick in the Suggestion thread? Thread over, kidding.
Of course I'm not sure if it's still over there. It doesn't hurt to discuss over again due to safety issues.
man, there needs to be a how-to vid on glomping...or some sort of pamphlet.
I'll make the pamphlet/flyer! I'll hand them out next year too! *nod nod* "Glomping: How To's and What Not to Do's...srsly we aren't playing football"
gah, now I really need to do that
