Blasphemy ( in the happiest place on earth )

They hold their signs high in the air
While passers by may stop and stare

Fists are pumping and voices raise
for all cosplayers to now praise

The Lord hates us, or so they say
and to save our souls that we must pray

But we'll keep walking on with pride
because we're the winners deep inside


next word ::

tumble

I don't want to regurgitate what everyone else has clearly said, but
I really only had two complaints.

I the schedule thing, or lack of, did bother me. Or maybe it was the presentation of the booklet in general that seemed underdone. If they were trying to save paper, I get it. But it seemed that just too many pages in the booklet were wasted on simple pictures or ads, you would think that at least, very least, it would include the traditional scheduling.

Honestly, if the booklet had included a paper schedule, I think my
weekend would have gone much smoother...

And also, just a note about the timing for the main events. Next year I strongly suggest that
the Masquerade is placed so that it won't have to compete with the Black&White Ball
.
I feel like maybe the concert was isolated to bring in more revenue, but according to what I heard, it was a little bit of a let down.

The concert, skits, and Ball are all key points in the convention, and I don't think that cosplayers attending only for one day shouldn't have that kind of disappointment
when they have to miss or choose one event to go to
.

Dance Staff ;

In regards to the Black&White Ball, the set up was lovely, but I have a few objections for the dance staff, or rovers. I was told by two of my friends that following their dress code check, they were approached by a few young men that were expressing concerns about their attire. These gentlemen apparently pursued and spoke to them claiming that they were "unsure if they were dressed properly". Mind you, this was after they cleanly passed door-inspection. What's even worse, these men offered to take my friends to a different location, not in the hall, not at the door, but a separate place to "officially check them".

After this, one of my friends found them later in the ball and demanded to see their badges, which they revealed. Now, I don't know if this kind of aggressive behavior is typical for Fanime rovers, however I see this as a transition into harassment.

So please, staff, I'm not trying to dismantle your dress code or security system, I'm simply suggesting (strongly) to find individuals who are serious and mature for these dance occasions and will not take advantage of their badge power. ~ Thank you very much.

Reading this makes me feel extremely uneasy, especially the part about taking your friends to a separate place to "officially check them".  This sounds shady and borderlines sexual harassment.

Reflecting on the Black and White Ball, I remember being asked at least three times to lift up my floor length dress so they could check my shoes (which were not pointed and about three inches in height).  By the third time, I couldn't help but wonder why it was necessary for three different people to ask me to lift up my dress.  In some ways, I thought I was being targeted because I was wearing a long dress.  I think it may be better to have ONE person check attire at the door, instead of repeatedly having ones' clothing questioned by multiple people.  It's certainly understandable that some people see this as harassment/sexual harassment.

Seriously I think a majority of the dance rovers were going on a power trip...

Especially during the wait in line, along the escalators, there was very little room to move
but they proceeded to demand that we place our lefts hands at our side and touch the wall.
It was slightly ridiculous. While they did do this when you entered the rave, I thought it was fairly informal and bold for them to do in such a classy setting...

Plus, I do agree, they should return to their dress check system from 2010
-- which was a simple up-down in the hotel lobby.

I'm glad that I finally managed to find the gathering thread. :3

      I hope everyone will be there next year.

If we requested a session with you,
 would we be permitted to share/pass the session to/with
 friends who have photo worthy cosplays as well ~?

you should try Amphigory.com

-- depending on the length and style, the cost ranges
   but they're overall decent as far as price/color/quality goes

Very interested.

Regretfully, I wasn't able to participate previously, but I'm
determined to make time for this in 2012.

I am
hungry

I am also
sitting in a stuffy hot summery room

I am on my way to open a window ;_;

(I am wondering how hot it will be at Fanime next year..)

This sounds interesting...
I really admire how determined you guys are to expand such a
small gathering too. I'm considering joining, as Elliot from Island of Happiness,
but I can't say for sure.

I'd appreciate an oshare - kei theme with more neon/acid styles
 or maybe
a Studio Ghibli / Hayao Miyazaki tribute ?

Anyone snag a photo of a bloody Keiichi from Higurashi Saturday/Sunday
 or possibly my Gazette Taion cosplay during the Black and White Ball ~?
