Thank you so much to everyone who attended this year!  We will have the unofficial gathering photo gallery up within one week!  The link will be posted here, on the Facebook Event Page for the gathering, and on the Mokkori Cosplay Facebook page.

We will be back in 2023!

Pre-COVID, I've been going alone to Fanime for many years now (post-college). The people that I used to go with either moved or moved on from anime in general but I still liked to go for a handful of personal traditions that I liked to keep. Anime Hell, Studio Sokodei, people watching, checking out the video rooms, browsing the dealer's hall and gaming room. Stuff like that.

It was always a bit weird. The general population would all be around the same age range and I got older and older as the years passed. It gets harder and harder to keep up with all of the latest shows, so a lot of the cosplays and merch I see just goes over my head because I most likely haven't heard about it or know about it. It's been a bittersweet thing for me. I go, I enjoy it, I do what I want to do, but I often feel disconnected from it all. Like an alien or an outsider observing it, you know? That doesn't necessarily bother me, though, so I can't say you'd experience the same thing as I have.

If you go, just do your best and have as much fun as you want to. I personally am not going this year because I don't feel comfortable going back to pre-COVID conventions with COVID still very much around and causing trouble. Maybe next year things will be a bit better, but no con for me this year. First time since around 2005/2006 that I haven't gone.

Good luck to you! Stay safe out there!

Will there be online signups for the karaoke contest this year, or only at-con? Assuming it's tomorrow at 6pm like previous years?

The Fanime twitter posted a link to the signups a week ago, but I guess they forgot to put it on the actual site. Doesn't seem to be filled up yet?
Going by the schedule (which also isn't properly linked on the main site, only in a news post...) it's check in at 3 and contest at 6 on Friday.
OH my god you're a life saver, just applied. Thank you!!

Just found out today this gathering was approved. Since I wasn't sure I didn't get any props prepared. So I'll have to keep it simple this year.

Good afternoon old schoolers!

I'm about to head out to Fanime myself so I'm going to make this the last pre-gathering post for this year.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has followed this gathering, either on the forums or the Facebook event page, especially those who have been here for the two and a half years or so - since the beginning of what was supposed to be for 2020.  We are right on the edge of the gathering finally and that is wonderful.

There are a lot of people who can't attend - due to life changes, level of comfort, and in some cases no longer being with us.  I am thankful for them as well.  For supporting the tradition of this gathering and keeping the vintage fire not only burning - but roaring.

I hope to see you all tomorrow.  Remember we are at G7 and will be beginning at 6pm promptly.  Remember we will have gathering ribbons for every cosplayer in attendance, if you have to leave before the end of the gathering PLEASE let me know tomorrow so I can give you a ribbon and a card!

Please be respectful of other cosplayers and other attendees.  Give staff and event hosts room to breathe and a "thank you" if so inclined.

Capping this year's old school OPs / EDs off perfectly - especially since it's just that windy in downtown San Jose today.  Here's the second ending from my all-time favorite shojo series.

Good afternoon old schoolers!

So here we are, many of you already on site, the convention in the process of being set up.  I hope everyone is well and that everyone will be respectful to your fellow cosplayers, attendees, and staff.  I'm going to head out myself in a couple hours and dive into the changes of 2022.  I'll have one more post in a bit and then it'll all switch to at-con for tomorrow.  Here's a great ending theme of a pretty amazing family manga and anime that continues to be extremely popular to this day.
