General Convention Discussion / Re: Fanime Founder AMA
Last post by Hachimitsu - May 20, 2024, 01:45:38 PM
I kinda agree, I noticed a growing trend of anime conventions I once visited are now gone. WE almost lost Asahicon due to the pandemic, but there were other wonderful conventions as well I missed. KRAKENcon was one of them. THey treated the artist and dealers hall nicely.

Another was Jtaf...yoaicon....AOD... 

I already know why the Jtaf and aod are gone, and kraken con as well...

I am not sure how the convention venues are treating it more respectful if anyone wanted to host their own con without breaking their own bank wallet and loans!

I mean you guys are going to host a panel about this..right?

Good evening old schoolers!

Sorry I haven't been as promotion heavy with the gathering as in years previous.  All systems are still go!  I've been occupied with some adjustment pains after relocating recently, and trying to get my Fanime panel (Vintage Anime - Name That Year! on Saturday at 10am) buttoned up.

Hi! Question--I'm not cosplaying at this meetup, but I'd love to take a peek! I've only read the first book, though--how spoiler-friendly do you anticipate this meetup being?

Hey Persephonaae!

My wife and I are planning on attending this meetup! I'll be rocking Hades and she'll be Persephone! We're both excited that this is happening! Thank you for putting this together!

Stickers for gacha have been delivered!

Also wanted to share - with Fanime changing their mask policy recently from required to recommended, as the host, I will be masked while running this gathering, even if outdoors! I picked an outdoor gathering location for access, and also for safety and keeping in mind anyone immunocompromised attending.

Quote from: BugShramp on May 17, 2024, 08:34:35 AMHi!! I'm gonna be dressing up as an inkling from Splatoon but not specifically the one that's in Smash. Would it still be okay to join in on this gathering? :o No worries if not, I just didn't see a general Splatoon/Nintendo gathering on the list!

Absolutely! :D come represent the squid kids!! XD

I'm helping host the Bay Area Rockosplay Concert (tickets in link) which is both an anime themed concert/mini convention with bands playing anime music, art being sold, and a cosplay event. A lot of the bands will be playing anime themes while wearing cosplays as well (check out Aimai Mirai - for example they've cosplayed as Jujutsu Kaisen in the past while playing the theme songs from the show).

We're going to have free professional photography for all attendees, and a cosplay contest with a $140 prize as well! The event is on June 7 in Santa Clara, which is 2 weeks after Fanime - which is a good option if you don't finish your Fanime costume in time or if you want cosplay photos afterwards. Let me know if you have any questions! I'll also be at Fanime cosplaying this year :)
