also, people checking badges are awful, i walked up with my badge in plain sight and he nearly grabbed me asking "BADGE?!?!" it was right in front of his face, maybe dont hire 90 year old staff members wtf.

Most of the facilities staff who were checking badges were great.  However, yes, there was ONE older gentleman who was an asshat.  Did the same thing, I'm holding my badge out in plain sight so he can see it easily, and he puts his hands on me.  I tell him very calmly, "Don't set your hands on me, brother" and he didn't know what to do except continue to look at my badge and move aside.  Everyone else was fine, and went as far as to complement me a couple times.

As for badge pick up, as was said, it really depended on how aware the person at the printer at your table was.  Overall I REALLY liked the self-service system and hope it comes back next year.  I'm sure if they keep it as it is and everyone is more familiar with how it will play out, then it'll be even smoother.

By any chance was this older gentleman in steampunk gear?
I always plan half days. 10-3pm in cosplay and then 3-4pm resting in the hotel with the rest of the night in regular clothes. I will alternate the next day:10-3 plainclothes and 4- to whenever in cosplay. You may also want to bring less cosplays or plan a whole day in plain clothes?
This sounds awesome! Would you be available Saturday or Sunday after 4pm?

I booked Friday to Sunday and was on around 7:30
Thank You!Thursday 7am must be a really busy for hotel booking, probably a lot of us pre regged at the same time. It also looks like hotels were released in batches and the waitlist will open up after those batches are released this week and people start canceling reservations (April 28th deadline).

It was a good experience for me. I got there yesterday at 7am and tried to book the westin, it got filled as I was booking it but when I looked at the hotels again, the fairmont was open! Snagged that ASAP. I had no crashing or lag problems.

If you still want to go you do have a few more options. Theres the Sheraton downtown which was not listed for some reason? Its very close but costs something like $360/night. You can also get a hotel in a nearby city and use lightrail. Great Mall has a Marriott Inn and a lightrail/bus station right next to it.

Was your reservation for the whole weekend? I was wait listed for the Fairmont when I logged in at 7am on Thursday so I was curious (I wanted saturday-monday).
First time I've ever been waitlisted in 6 years :(waited until my slot for today a 7 am and the hotels were mostly booked. Looks like I will have to make a twitter or FB account for next year since fanime doesn't have a mailing list like other cons. I'm so disappointed. :'( :'( :'(. I regrestered the day pre Reg opened  at 6pm so I must've been too late. I hope it all works out.

Not sure if this helps but, did you check your trash folder? Once yahoo glitched and defaulted my emails to the trash .

Edit: Sorry this was not too helpful, When it happened to me I did not check the trash folder (inadvertently skimmed over it), but looked at all of the other folders and then it auto-emptied soon after (lost forever). Should have explained that in my original post. Anyway, good luck!
hey did anyone find photos?
Anyone have photos of a gold vivienne from dragon age?

Wow pre reg line is ridiculous. The last 2 or 3 years I was able to just walk in. Plus reg didn't open until 3 on Thursday ? I thought I would be able to go to pick up during lunch at work, But since the line was unbelievable I guess it doesn't make a difference . I wasn't prepared for a mini line con again I should I brought snacks and blanket. Also , what is with the new last minute barcodes? Hopefully the con is awesome this year to make up for it /rant

Seems like they must be having some kind of issue, I don't remember ever having to wait this long for general registration to open. Anyone hear anything on when it might be opening? Normally at this point I'd be expecting the Hotels to start opening.

Sadly, Last year (2015) is the first year pre reg has been open that early in a long time. I think for Fanime 2014(?) pre reg didn't open until February. I think something like that is gonna happen again. I can't find the exact post anymore(hmmm), but on one of Fanime's social media websites, Fanime replied to someones post and stated that there were issues regarding hotel negotiations and that is why pre reg is late. I did some research directly from a few hotels that Fanime usually uses for housing and realized there were hotels available for Thursday-Monday memorial day weekend, which in the past there was no way you would find available rooms, especially in December. In the past those days were always greyed out.
Hello there,

I am a little older than you and I'm not sure what I will be doing next Fanime as far as meetups ect. But if we could plan something I would love to meet with you :)
I would come, sounds like a great idea!
