Happy Things in the Happy Universe / Re: New People Mall in San Francisco
« on: December 31, 2011, 03:58:03 PM »
I just want to make sure it's worth going to. I'm bringing my whole family with me, and if it's not all that it was hyped up to be, I'd rather know in advance and discreetly take my family somewhere else without them realizing the difference.

Where are these places that you recommended? Also, how is Kintetsu Mall, if you happen to know? I've only been to Japantown once and that was like four years ago or something.

Maybe Yuya Matsushita again, Gackt(although his appearance might be super expensive/dangerous), Daichi Miura, Utada Hikaru, L'Arc En Ciel, or even TaeYang(maybe?).

Maybe not just Japanese voice actors and stuff, but english ones like Vic Mignogna.....And, that's the only english V.A. I like. -_- Or maybe the mangaka's Matsuri Akino, Yuu Watase, Yoshihiro Togashi, Misashi Kishimoto or maybe some of the voice actors that worked on the japanese version of the anime NO.6 I dunno.

Happy Things in the Happy Universe / New People Mall in San Francisco

I've never been there, and I'm just now thinking about going to that mall sometime next week. Is it worth going to and what is there to see? I've tried looking for info online, but I haven't found anything helpful.

If not, what malls in japantown would you recommend going to for anime/manga/music related stuff besides Kinokuniya?

P.S. If this is the wrong board, whoops, my bad and please move it to the appropriate board.

Serious Business / Re: Cosplayers

I don't cosplay because I know I'm over weight and I accept that. When I talk about over weight cosplayers, I mean mainly the ones who dress as well, *insert skimpily dressed anime character here* If they dressed like say, any of the hetalia characters, or even as males, I don't have a problem. What I have a problem with is the people who are obviously over weight and dressing like Faye Valentine, or characters that wear a pair of bikini tops and short daisy dukes. That's the main problem I have with over weight cosplayers. I just don't like  that they choose to dress up as skimpy characters who dress like this.

If they chose more conservatively dressed characters like Chihiro from Spirited Away, Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle,  Pan from DBGT or Erza from Fairy Tail, I wouldn't have a problem. I just can't stand over weight cosplayers who wear clothing where their fat is obvious and hangs out of their cosplay for every one to see.

But really, I agree though, it seems like a lot of people nowadays cosplay purely for attention than anything else. I don't know if you were at Fanime this year, but there were a few people who dressed up as a character from Black Butler's (Kuroshitsuji) musical. Most of them did it for the attention because it was kind of obvious, but one girl who paid close attention to detail did it for the love of the show...... I think. << Maybe. Well, that was my impression.

Oh, and I still think people cosplay for themselves. Well, the masked ones do anyways. I think it's interesting because they're more anonymous and you can't really see their faces so they don't do it for the attention. At least, that's what I think.

P.S. I know I'm being offensive, but I figure it's better to at least apologize or try to not be offensive while I'm trying to make my point. I'm not elitist. I prefer realistic. I feel like I'm not stating my points clearly. << Well, I'm trying at least. And this username is just one I chose with my two favorite characters of the moment. xDDDD

Serious Business / Cosplayers
« on: July 10, 2011, 12:29:05 AM »
I adore cosplayers, don't get me wrong, but I think I have a rather harsh, but realistic view of all this.

Am I the only one that gets really annoyed when they see a cosplayer dressing up and they're not 'right' for the character? For example, lets take Sakura Haruno, for example. She's skinny, and has specific outfits. What really annoys me is when an OVERWEIGHT, and obviously so, chooses to dress up as her. When I say obviously, I mean, you can see the bulge of their fat in the 'cosplay'. I don't know why, but when overweight/obese people dress as skinny anime characters it annoys me. Now, I don't have a problem with it all the time, because some over weight people pull the look off well, even if their weight/body types are different. But for the most part, I can't help but cringe every time I walk past an overweight cosplayer dressing as a character that is anywhere from 50-100+ pounds below their weight. What is a little weird for me, is when girls who are maybe, 10 pounds over weight, dress in skimpy clothing as part of a character cosplay. It's weird and I can't help but think 'if only you were toned'.

Oh, and cosplayers who only bother to put on wigs and make up and some cheap excuse for a 'cosplay'. I saw three characters from Naruto this year (if you recognize these people, I'm not trying to be offensive) Sakura, Sasuke and Naruto. Sasuke and Naruto wore white button down shirts and black slacks, saying they were 'Naruto' characters. Done well, it would have been fine, but the way they so obviously just threw it together killed it for me and annoyed me more than anything else. Also, just because you're wearing a 'wig' from Hatsune Miku or some other character doesn't mean you're cosplaying! It just means you're wearing a wig and looking like an IDIOT for saying you're 'cosplaying'.
Men dressing as women characters is odd, but for the most part I'm relatively okay with it. The only time I have a problem is when the men are dressing as skimpy females like Faye Valentine. I saw a Madam Red from Kuroshitsuji, beautifully done by a guy. He was way too tall, but it worked, and was actually kind of appealing to my inner fangirl.

I'm not trying to be offensive here, these are my personal opinions and if I offend anyone, I apologize. I just think this would be an interesting topic to discuss.

Serious Business / Re: Swatstikas at Fanime?
« on: June 09, 2011, 03:21:51 PM »
Sorry if this is too late. I really haven't taken the time to read all of the replies, so if I say something someone else said twice, my bad.

I don't honestly see what's so offensive about the swastika's. It's my understanding that there are anime's/shows/mangas that incorporate the swastika's and nazi's. Besides, I think if we're going to make a big deal out of it, we'd have to ban Hetalia cosplaying because of the fact that they're based on countries and as someone mentioned, the flags are dragged on the ground/sat on/ disrespected.

We'd also have to tell cosplayer Jesus that he can no longer cosplay as Jesus. Which to be quite honest, would suck. I've met and talked to the guy. When he's 'in-character' as 'Jesus' he's a laugh. So it would be a shame to have to tell him he could no longer dress as the iconic persona he's known for. Every Fanime I've been to (4 as of right now) Jesus has always been there. He's a riot, and if we take issue with swastika's and banning, we'd have to consider Hetalia as well which would mean Jesus would be banned.

Plus, what about all the nuns/priests cosplayers? Like Brigitte, Wolfwood(trigun). I'm pretty sure they would have to be banned to.

Hey guys, so I plan on cosplaying for Fanime 2010 next year.

But I don't know what to cosplay as cause I'm out of ideas.

I was thinking about going as Joey wheeler, 'cept I don't know if there's gonna be a seto kaiba there because if there were one there, it would make idea for it absolutely hilarious. ;D

So, if I choose a different character to cosplay, what would you recommend a first time cosplayer cosplaying as? Preferably not someone scantily clad.

Thanks for helping!

Okay great, thanks.

Hotel and Facilities / Sorry if this has already been asked...

But, I have two questions.

1) What are the two hotels connected to the convention center?

2) Has hotel room reservations already started?

Does anybody know what song was use for the SasukexItachi one where it was Sasuke centric and all about him being an avenger? I really want to find that song.
