Saturday afternoon and evening: Bruce Banner turning into the Hulk

I snapped one at the Disney Gathering
That wasn't me since I had a purple dress shirt and dress pants on.

« on: June 02, 2014, 04:20:08 PM »
Hotel Stayed: San Jose Airport Garden Hotel
Nights Stayed: Wednesday night to Monday Morning
Amenities: 2 Double beds and one coffee machine
Helpfulness of Staff: At the front desk in person yes but when it comes to using the phones in the room then no
Roomshares?: Just me and my g/f
Pros of Hotel:
  • Friendly front desk staff who gives helpful information about where restaurants and shops are located.
  • Convenient to the VTA even though it requires a fee but we could get to the convention easily rather than taking the shuttle
  • Nice Pool and Spa
Cons of Hotel:
  • Phones were broken. I tried contacting the front desk when there was disturbance Monday morning at 2 am but phones weren't working.
  • Wi-fi is kind of slow
  • Housekeeping service was kind of poor
  • Lack of power outlets
  • Unclear TV channels
  • Wallpaper in bathroom is peeling off
Would You Stay Again: If I plan on going to Fanime in the future, I won't be staying at this hotel.
Recommendations/Suggestions/Misc: Bring a cooler for drinks and a power strip for charging electronic devices.

Thank you all for attending this shoot. I was expecting some Street Fighter cosplayers to join to outnumber SNK but this year we had the upper hand.


I had an awesome time at the shoot. Thanks again. Hopefully next time I plan to go to Fanime, I will probably have a Yamcha(Red Ribbon Army Arc variant), Ninja Murasaki, or Goku ready.

I had a blast this year. Thanks again. Not sure when the next time I want to go to Fanime since it has been one of my favorite conventions but I will let you guys know.


I am looking for pictures of me and my girlfriend(who cosplayed as Honey from Fighting Vipers on Friday, Sonic on Saturday, and Yunomi(Dragon ball fan character on Sunday).)

Thursday: Terry Bogard from the King of Fighters(Fatal Fury 2 variant/ KoF 94-02, XII, and XIII)
Friday Morning to Afternoon: Sie Kensou (King of Fighters XII/XIII variant)
Friday Afternoon to Evening: Parappa the Rapper
Saturday Morning to Afternoon and late afternoon: Little Mac from Punch Out(Smash Bros. variant)
Saturday afternoon and evening: Bruce Banner turning into the Hulk
Sunday: Yamcha from Dragon Ball (Turtle School Variant)

*random bumps*
We are getting closer to Fanime. Who's ready?

I should have done this earlier but have been super busy as of late. Anyway I haven't hosted a Capcom vs. SNK shoot in a while since no one is hosting one this year I decided to go ahead and host the shoot. All Capcom and SNK characters are welcome and it doesn't have to be fighting games. FYI if you think this is the Attack on Titan shoot then this is not the shoot for you. This SNK creates awesome games like Metal Slug, Samurai Spirits, Crystalis, and of course the mother of all SNK Fighters *drumroll* The King of Fighters.

Other Request

Fanime will be taking group pictures during the Gathering/Event this year. If you do not want to be included in those pictures please step aside for those photos. By remaining with the group when the pictures are being taken you give your consent to be photographed.

I don't know if there will be more than one fighting game gathering this year, if there is an extra gathering on a Sunday or Saturday, I am thinking about bringing Jann Lee from Dead Or Alive in his DOA 2 Hardcore Bouncer Outfit instead of Todoh depending on what time the other cosplay shoots are.

My girlfriend will be cosplaying as Honey from Fighting Vipers.

Usually I don't cosplay at the final day of the con or I don't show up that day.

Did you guys figure out the time and place for this shoot because I am planning to host a Capcom vs. SNK shoot before this one.

Name of Gathering: Capcom vs. SNK Gathering
Date & Time: 3 PM
Location: G8c
Possible Attendance: 5+
Photography Order:
-Non Fighting Game Characters
-Fighting Game Characters
-Face-off: Capcom vs. SNK
-Other Requests
Same Gathering NEW HOST

As long as it doesn't interfere with the Fighting Game Shoot, I am thinking about cosplaying as Bruce Banner.

I am planning on bringing my ipod and speakers with me for this shoot if you guys want some music for this shoot.

I hope to make it this year since Fanime is one of my favorite West Coast Cons. If I end up going I am either thinking about bringing Parappa the Rapper, Sie Kensou(KoF XIII), or Ryuhaku Todoh(Art of Fighting)
