I would be interested in bringing out a Haruka costume for this if more people were interested! I'd love to see a gathering happen. :)
If this is happening I should have Umi from Rayearth at Fanime!
I should be wearing Kasumi from Dead or Alive around 3pmish on Friday so I will try to make it to this! I might be able to drag some of the other DOA girls I'm shooting with, too. I'll try to get more info before the con!
Dang I can't make it because my priority on Friday evening is Swap Meet, but I'm bringing costumes from anime that aired in 1994 and a video game that came out in 1990! I'm so bummed. Haha. Looking forward to the photos!
Thank you for the clarification! Looking forward to Swap Meet this year. :)

You will need to get a permit to sell at Swapmeet, Link here: This also lists all of the other information you're looking for on Taxes and the like.

Last year this was only necessary for certain sellers. Are the rules changing this year so that every swap meet participant must acquire a California Seller's Permit?
I'm sorry I missed my own gathering, you guys. Blame LineCon. :(

Thanks for posting photos, theophenes!

I may be only able to get to outside part of the shoot, depending on how long badge pick-up takes. Where will the outdoors part be?

Yeah I am hoping badges will go quicker this year... We'll be at the G8 area for outside shots, to the left of the main con center entrance!

I'll be going attending Fanime as Felicia on Saturday so unfortunately I will not be able to make it :<

Sorry to hear it. :( I'll look for you as Felicia on Saturday!
Awesome! This group is getting to be a pretty good size! <3

Just a word of warning as a former artist alley attendee in Exhibit Hall 1; wifi signals inside there are very weak (my carrier was AT&T) and I had to walk out of the hall to take Square payments.  I would bring some loose change in case this happens as I'm sure it'll be difficult to leave your swap meet booth.

Do you mean Wi-Fi or 3G?

I've never been to a swap meet before and I was wondering if people who just wanted to buy stuff had to register or anything. Or maybe I have the concept of Swap Meet wrong >.>

You just have to be registered for the con! Then you just show up and shop around. ;)

Hello, I have some questions.
Ill be waiting in line around 6 AM for day zero on Thursday and I want to pick my badge that day too. Is it okay to have my boyfriend to wait in line for swap meet? In the application I put him as the second seller.
Also, what is swap meet set starts on Thursday?

...6 am? You should not be in line so long that your boyfriend will need to go wait in line for swap meet while you do that! I imagine you actually meant 6 pm, yeah?
TACO FESTIVAL. That sounds amazing and is super tempting!! Haha. My Saturday isn't TOO busy... >_>
Last year one of my hotel buddies and I went to Trader Joe's pre-con to get some healthy snacks for the room. Best idea ever. TJ's has great healthier options, like their lowfat cheese poofs! :D Mostly I was excited to have dried fruit, beef jerky, and the like in the hotel. Also important: a case of bottled water so you can always grab one before you head out into the con. :) I also like to have a Luna bar or something similar in my bag.

This list is final, right? I hope Kenshin and Ace Attorney are playing when I'm not busy! Also stoked to see Thermae Romae on there. That movie is so fun. :)
Tris-chan hasn't been around since the thread was posted, so I wonder if this got on the list at all. D:
Sounds like we're gonna have a Fanime photographer and may move outside after we get some shots on the tiered platforms. We'll see how it goes. Excited for next week, you guys!!

Also Michi, we're working with a new database that doesn't allow for easy exporting of the data. I'll try to get it ready before the convention but odds of that are fairly low.

The names aren't as important! I was mostly just wondering how full Swap Meet is now. :)

Though I have another question! Can we only take cash as payment? Square makes it really easy for non-shopkeeps to accept credit card payment with their app and card swiper attachment. Would that be allowed at all?
Okay, we have switched to G2! It's a tiered platform to the left side of the con center main area. I'll be in the area in my bright red Karin school uniform, so I should be easy to spot. 8D
I posted the gathering location link on the previous page. 8D Thanks, Lexy.

I'm finalizing our location now with BSaphire...
