General Convention Discussion / Re: Staff exodus?
May 20, 2024, 01:49:31 PM
Yeah I read that one many weeks ago and I was debating about wether i should particpate fanime con or just visit a different convention altogether. ALot has changed and it feels more intimidating to enjoy the con. If this year has any improvements then I MIGHT come back but this might be my last fanime con if my friends also decided NOT to particpate.
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?
General Convention Discussion / Re: Staff exodus?

My friends notified me this and I thought it was just a prank until I read the story. #failedbyfanime. Fanime used to be amazing but now it felt Less and less exciting!
it's okay to cry and cannot obtain these things..
This is where Swap meet comes in.
Sometimes you may find something you may like thats better than what others would think..
and sometimes.. you may find something you wanted to have when your a kid.. but the price is affordable because its " heavily used"..

It's okay to feel sorry and depress..but know this.. there are some folks like me and my sister who sell these priceless items to those who wished it so.. Some of our items may be priced high but if your a HUGE HUGE HUGEEEEE fan..i wouldn't mind taking a loss of income and give it to someone happy!..

Case in point.. I sold a large Dragonair PLushie..
Most people were low balling me because they wanted it but this one woman who already has one.. wanted the one I have.. and I gave her a discount because I KNOW she loves to have something like it to actually wrap around her waist.. I can't remember her name but she volunteers for the swap meet.

The worse is when I sold games of pokemon red, yellow and blue and a few GBC devices.. and in the end. THEY RESOLD IT for more than double!..
and I knew for a moment that I was tricked/played with!

AS for the K-ON! limited edition.... I didn't know that existed but HOLY crap that is expensive as hell!!!!
I"ll see if I can find someone I know who is selling it for...erh...less....???
JEsus christ I KNOW THOSE GUYS..and I once bought a shirt form them.. holy crap I dint know they ended their business :_:!

thanks for sharing this!
i kinda wanna volunteer but I am sorry this response is very very late!....
I'll dm ya

volunteered for the Screening room and artist/dealers halls
Live Programming and Events / Re: Artist Alley?

the application process is one of those fill in your name and such like any registration your applying for artist alley.
I think the badges you apply can be inputed later...

once your made it like..i think.. step 3?...4? it will ask you to
- Submit 5 of your best artwork pieces and or link to your portfolio.

once your submit, you have to wait til you get a confirmation letter of Congrats or "Try again next year".

IF you somehow did got the congrats part, the next step they will require is
- Permit
- Payment

The payment process is the easiest as you have to pay for right there and then.

THE PERMIT is a different story as Most artist struggle with this.
some manage to get their permit applications within the first 5 minutes, but for some reason, I and my friends ( and a few others) got theirs within a day or within a week! So it is best to contact them ( board of equalization now renamed as Taxes and fees) to see what was going on!

ONce you got your permit.. you need to input their code.. and await for further instructions./.

AROUND one month from now to the convention or maybe a few weeks, you get another email regarding Table placement.

Once you claim your table.. your all set..

Competition wise:
THE FRIST 1000 artist to subscribe, THE PROCESS GETS SHUT DOWN..and no one is allowed to entered
(I find their " we will close within a week" not believable as I did that method to refine my work)

So best to prepare your best works and enter, cause slots can fill very very fast!

Table wise.. best to be prepare when it happens cause they can fill very fast on the best available spaces!

Hope this helps but... as of now I tried to submit my work and usually, I was in the AA, but then 2018 CHANGED that and I couldn't get in as my work is now being outshined by others.

Sorry if this response is Late, this pandemic kinda ruined the enjoyment of it all!
Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Art Show / Gallery - for 2020
December 07, 2019, 10:22:04 PM
Actually the last time I saw it, anyone was welcome to showcase their artworks. It was fun and it felt easy..the only problem is people had to bring their own Hooks.

I mean, I just want to see some wonderful illustrations from those who could not participate for artist alley!
and Art gallery seems to fit the bill.

Ideas and Suggestions / Art Show / Gallery - for 2020
October 14, 2019, 01:24:20 AM
I know this is A HUGE undertaking to ask this out loud for ideas and suggestions but I was thinking of wanting to volunteer to take control of the Art show/gallery for Fanime con.

WE HAD one before around...2016?..maybe 2015?...
but lately, the art gallery was removed for a very long time.

are we not going to have this anymore or is there a reason why we aren't having one?..

(Sorry but the Fanime con Art show doesn't qualify because it felt more of a promotion of the yester-years past)

What I am talking about is an actual art gallery from those who worked hard to showcase their gifts.

So despite we might not get one for 2020, is it possible to volunteer for it to take-in charge?.. what do I need to do once I get accepted?
Again, I really apologized if this is in the wrong thread, but it does qualify for an idea/suggestion!

Room is kinda full just noticing people are asking for one day only o_o!..... huh..

• Introduction:
Hello my name is Hachimitsu (Male - Age 34) and I would like to let you know I book a hotel and I have a few friends wanting to stay over.

As of now, I am slowly steadily preparing myself for Fanimecon (along with several other conventions).
I really do love to play video games, Cosplay and love to draw. There are times where I had some great success's with artist alley and miserable moments like ....artist alley.
Apparently, Swap meet always cheered me up but whenever I got the chance to be the seller, I usually ask the people from my roommates to "HELP ME".

Last year was a blast, but the same time it also created some mixed Feelings on "enjoyment".
I really hope next year will be a better improvement than 2014, but all in all, it wasn't a complete disaster.

My huge interests are:
Kingdom hearts, Legend of Zelda, Sailor Moon, Pokemon and anything nintendo/sega related. Magi: Labyrinth / Kingdom of magic (because I love genies)

Amenities :
• Your Own Key
• Coffee Machine (hotel already has this built in)
• Refrigerator
• Wi-Fi Internet access
• Parking access? (this needs to be researched though but i heard its $60 for the entire week but this was last years response)
- Microwave (i'm going to try and ask for one, since I hear this was more of a request service)
- Art / Crafting Supplies
- MORE PLUG OUTLETS!!!(seriously I noticed last year i have no power space T_T)
- Water bottles (Seriously you are going to need one O_O)
* Food/snacks (it's still undecided but I need to get something for you guys to have and eat!

I know this is expensive to you but to me, your helping paying the hotel, followed by having your very own key as well.
however, Do not pay me yet (right now I am working and trying to calculate some things here and there)

• Requirements:
- For once i really like to have a conversation of how your doing, if your okay ya know, but try not to joke when i am in trouble
- I am very stressful and late, so please don't be mad at me, I have a very good reason!..mostly artist alley and gallery
- If I am a messy person, I will clean my mess up as neat as possible, also try to be neat and nice as well O_O!..
- DO NOT BRING COLORED SODAS! they will charge ALOT of money, I learned my lesson after strawberry soda, so just bring clear soda or just water!
- if I feel depress, please cheer me up!. it helps a lot!
* All beds/sofas cannot be ASKED, they are only givin by generosity on my behalf (or paid in advance) *
*If you plan on inviting your guests and friends, i highly recomend you ask your fellow roomates in advance, I had an issue before from the past involving with courtesy onto others*
PLEASE DO NOT ABUSE THE AIR CONDITIONING, I weight much less than you and can catch a flu very easily.
PLEASE RESPECT other peoples belongs with care, There will be a moment where I will move your stuff along, just to make the bed clean and organised so you can sleep healthy and easy. I respect your stuff and I don't want to damage them.

• Contact:
~you can private message me
( I do have the right to decline offers, please be aware of this )

+ Miscellaneous:
I am Attending Artist alley
Hoping to register for Swap meet soon!!!!
I do get stressed out a lot.
I will also bring some Cosplay materials incase if anything is needed on mending

as of now I can only fit One more GUESTS but again, I cannot confirm who is going and who is not, so far I am still trying to apply for floor plans here and there.. and so far I think I a running out of space!... The hall space i know is one area I want to claim, because the bed was design for those who have problems sleeping or partially disability.
I am still awaiting confirmation from misachan, phemento and solodavid99.

Last minute changes???
Don't feel bad if you find a better deal than mines, your welcome to note me and say you found someone else. I just want to help out.. that is all! Even if it's on the day of the convention... (but if you paid me already, your only getting 2/3'rds of your refund back.)

I remember two years ago we weren't able to bring it wheeled carts, will that still be the case?

hey wait a second.. I remember two years ago people DID bring wheel like carts into the set!.. and  it's only allowed as long as it doesnt block traffic to those who walk in....!!!!

sorry i kinda missed out on 2016 since i was promise for a wedding but ended up with delayed response at a later date...
anyway YEAY... WE NEED bigger space but I hope the price isn't too high T_T!.....I got alot of stuff i wanna get rid of and alot of stuff i wanna buy!!!!

I apologize for taking so long for another update! I just didn't have anything positive to update.

Independently, another artist and I are going to try to set up a home for local artists that coincides and compliments the timing of FanimeCon. I had originally sent this idea on to Fanime, but I have not heard a response in more than a month. We got to thinking that maybe we should take that as a sign that if we want to get something done, we should just do it ourselves. So with that motivation in mind, please wish us luck! Feel free to find and message me at or email [email protected] if you'd like any more details or have suggestions. :)

Thanks, everyone! If anything changes I will continue to pop in on here to update.

Thank you moonbug for your hard work T_T!... i really did had plans on bringing a figure i want to showcase that i dont think anyone has seen before.. but then i may need to talk about the rules and regulations part (since the art was from scott campbell, but the sculpture was from rhvel?....but the coloring is from me...) but this idea was added since i think the last time i saw something amazing was a giant dragon sculpture but afterwards felt like my work hasn't contribute much audiences at all v_v!... except the mami tomoe one.. that one was awesome!!!
and the other artist who did the paper cut illustrations (mines was digital cut illustrations)
Apparently I had to go make a new reservation and the old confirmation gets replace instantly with the new changes...

So if you happen to register for the wrong dates... go back and make a new one, and double checck everything...
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, HIT REFRESH BUTTON ( F5 I think )BUT DO NOT HIT THE BACK BUTTON!... thats how it reverts to default settings...

So happy i got this fixed because the dates I first had, was wrong.. and had to make a new reservation instead of going to the modify reservation.

So yeah. if you screw up... make a new one As soon as possible, and double check with fanime con housing number.

I'm already set now.. waiting for Swap meet registration to come soon!
I am still waiting on mines since i had to re-correct mines...

THe only positive is I am happy i got into artist alley, but then im waiting on their payment page options!..
IF this was an olympic sport, it would be one of those triatholons

Fanime Artist alley
Fanime Registration
Fanime hotel reservation
.......swap meet?

In that order!

but yeah.. got the email of the wrong dates but not the email with the right ones -_-!
(already calling fanime housing for help on viewing a confirmation)
