Huzzah! I got a new laminator (finally). I'm going to start laminating these and sending out to people who posted their address.

Sorry again!
That sounds like a pretty good idea. I won't have another laminator (or access to one) until next week anyways.
Yea, I super dropped the ball on this one this year.  My laminator broke, so I could only get a couple batches of badges done in the end.

So if you're missing your badge from this year (or last year), fill out this form and I'll mail it to you.

Badges are free since I messed up.  I would be happy with donations instead.
Hur hur, what I would give for another week to finish things up.

So I'm starting on the badges now.  Final submission deadline is between now and when I go to sleep.  I won't be able to make it to the 11am meetup (10am-12pm final <.< >.>), so badges will be going out Friday night/Saturday morning.  If anyone's free Friday night, we can have a shove-badges-through-a-laminator party :D

All posts before this one will be updated on Page 1
I'm getting there Friday afternoon/night, but I'll probably end up running around and hand delivering them to people.
Since Fanime is coming up really close, feel free to add my number just incase you don't have time to check the forums for more concrete plans.


You can text me anytime during the weekend and I'll let you know what I figure out.

<shameless plug> I'm also doing custom photo prints and tags and stickers and 3d photos too :D
Mmm.. I have to finish up school work before I can get working on these.  It'll probably be a loooong night on Thursday.

On the plus side, I just found the box with all the old unclaimed 2009 badges.

I unfortunately don't have an Artist Alley table this year.  Is there a Forum gathering I can go to instead?
RAAAWR! I've been really busy lately, but I'm back now.  Tsubasa finished up the design, so I'll get on printing these soon.

I'm going to make the deadline for submissions on May 23rd.  You can still do last minute submissions after that, but not guarantee it will get through.

@Otakuya Whoops, forgot to add in your pic.  I'll probably go find a bigger picture for you in the end
@Pengin-san I'll try to fit the moonrunes onto badges, but if it doesn't work out, I'll default to regular text.

For previous year's badges. I.. think I still have them somewhere?  If I can dig them up, I'll let you guys know and you can pick them up this year.  If anything, I might be able to just reprint them for you.

If I can't get a booth, I'll be really friendly with someone and take over a corner of their booth :D

Last day for change requests is whenever I get around to printing them.  I'm going to say tentatively May 23rd is the last day for any changes and May 27th is the last day for final badge requests.  I could make new ones during the con as well, but I'll do so weeping. ;_;

I got an interesting request for double sided badges.  I don't really see a problem with doing that, so I'm completely all for it.  I'll talk to Tsubasa to see if he wants to make a back design to complement the front.

@Otakuya - Did you post a picture? I can't see it D:
@HeeroYuy135 - Your picture is private, I can't look at it :O Sounds scandalous :D

Every year for a grand Fanime Forum tradition, Tsubasa and I make laminated badges for Fanime Forum members.  These don't replace the official Fanime badges in any way and it's only there for fun and recognizing others from the forum.

Here is the thread from 2009.

After I made your badge, you can do one of the following.
- Go to Fanime and pick up your badge for $1

$1 is for materials cost.

What I need from you:
-Your fan name (if it is different from your forum name)
-A high resolution picture of whatever you want.  Anything larger than 1200 resolution is fine.  600 is really pushing it.  Any less than that and you'll have a fuzzy badge.

Q. Why do this?
A. It's a fun way to uniquely identify Fanime Forum members, plus I've always liked having a custom badge rather than just something the con gives you.  After a couple years, it just became a tradition.

Q. What dimension/size do you need the pictures at?
A. As large as you can possibly get.  For the most part, I will resize and crop down to the proper size, but it's important that you get the highest resolution possible because upscaling does wonderfully bad things to most pictures.  As a general rule, try to get something bigger than 600 pixels across.

Q. What happens if you don't find a picture?
A. This is possibly the funnest/creepiest thing I do.  If I don't have a specific picture from you, I start researching your profile and previous posts to try to ascertain what kind of person you are and what picture you would like the most. >:3  It sounds totally creepy in that stalker-y kinda way, but I find it pretty fun figuring out things about people.

Q. How much am I charging?
A. Probably $1 for printing and laminating costs.  If you happen to work at a printing store and can do such things for free *nudge nudge wink wink*, the badge price will drop to $0.  These are just materials fees.  The largest cost is laminating.

Q. Who can get one?
A. Anyone at all.  Just make a post voicing your interest and make sure you're on the list maintained on the first page.

Q. How can I voice my interest?
A. You can either make a post in this thread, message my through the forum, or send me an email at email[at]

I'll update this thread with a list of confirmed people.  Happy hunting for pictures, and I look forward to seeing you guys at Fanime :D

Ideas and Suggestions / Re: 2010 fanime forum badges

Hmmm... I wonder if I can embed a small battery and blinking LED in every one.  Or I can embed a 2d augmented reality bar code and release an iPhone app using OpenAR to display people's avatars on each one.  Or I can go do both using Bokeh Bokodes.

As for 3d photos, I almost perfected the process in creating them.  I gave away a bunch of prototypes at AOD, and I'm thinking about selling them at Fanime.

It's awesome to have friends who check the forums for me.

Yes indeed I will do them again this year once I get in contact with Tsubasa for the design.  I also plan on getting an Artist Alley table this year too, so we'll have a good place to distribute them.  I was thinking of making a post about it between now and next month.  I'm working on the possibility of making 3d photos as well.
Hey hey! Anybody going up to this from San Jose?  I'm seeing if I can get a ride instead of taking Caltrain.

It will be late in the summer, but 9 is coming out on September 9th.

Dont you mean district 9?

yah, all sorts of ppl are doing weird things for the 9.9.09 day, interesting gathering day, but its a wednesday and everyone will be in school by then >_<

Nope, 9.

It's like a cross between Little Big Planet and AWESOME.
So.. I'm retarded XD  I underpaid for postage for all of them because I used some older stamps.  I resent them out today.

I'm super sorry for the delay ;_;

I have mailed out badges to the following people.

Chiri Kcrinh
Knight of Infinity

and the following are still missing theirs

The Doctor
I should be back in the bay area for the summer around 2-3 weeks from now, so we can maybe do some sort of gathering or event where I can bring all of the badges with me.
