Likely attending. If anything for costuming, something discreet that won't be knocking down merchandise at the turn of every corner.

Ooh.  I would love to come!  I just need to figure out a means of getting there.

But for cosplay, I dunno.  :-\  As I'm on a long cosplay hiatus until Fanime 2009, I'm getting sick of wearing the same costume each time. 
Title: Re: Animepalace Party!!!
Post by: ced1106 on November 15, 2008, 11:56:53 PM
Same day as No Name Anime's December meeting.  :P

Which begins at 12:30pm, so there's 2 hours at Anime Palace to enjoy!  ;D
Title: Re: Animepalace Party!!!
Post by: Oniko on November 19, 2008, 09:48:01 PM
Oh yeah the owner mentioned he might do something like this the first or second week of December and he mentioned something about costumes and games.
Now the trick is.... do I go in a costume from last Fanime or the new one I plan to wear in 2009
Title: Re: Animepalace Party!!!
Post by: Lunapokema on November 19, 2008, 11:22:20 PM
I am so in! Vote's as to what I should wear? ???

Yaoi-Naruto
Kitty-Luffy
Sweeney Todd (everyone at fanime loved this ^^)
or anything else someone can remember me wearing. XD

Unless they are open one of the weekends prior. >.>;

^_^ Yay for people! I'm glad people are able to attend. Usually the owner has had it on Yaoicon weekend so many opt for the con. Please don't forget to tell your friends! I will probably make another maid... or something. xx; Had to move recently so my costumes are in a big box.

Anime Palace will have tables set up for the Maid RPG games!

Quote
You are a maid, having worked dutifully for the Saionji family for several years. You are also a shy albino princess who does odd jobs for the yakuza, and train with the three-section staff. Your peer Maya is an outgoing young maid with freckles, a streak of being greedy for sweets, and who also happens to be a military cyborg.

Your master is a kind teenager who lives in the mansion alone, but is a bit of a train otaku. He is also a cursed werewolf. With amnesia.

Somewhere between doing the laundry and preparing lunch, the master is kidnapped by evil ninjas. They escape through the basement of the mansion, which contains a portal to the Netherworld. It's up to you to get him back before dinnertime.

All in a day's work for a maid!

Maid is an light comedy anime-themed tabletop role-playing game for three or more players. The very easy to learn rules-light system, complete with random events which drive the story forward, will have you playing the game with friends only fifteen minutes after opening the book. Maid is also the first ever Japanese role-playing game to be translated and released in English.

I talked to the owner today about any other events hell have. He'll have his Wii there. He's also short a controller if would like to bring one... or more to help out. I didn't ask which games he'll have, so if anyone has some party games they want to share, please go right ahead!

Also if anyone wants to bring board games, you're welcome to do so. I'm also bringing my DS if anyone wants to play something. ^_^

*Don't forget to bring your friends!!!*

You know... bring it just in case. I'll give him a call before the event to double check. He has only one television, so there's going to be a lot of wires for just even two consoles.

Someone should bring another TV then, even if it is a small one. That way you can set it up. I would volunteer, but it's my brother's and that one is somewhat heavy to carry. Well, I can ask if I could borrow it too.

I called the owner today. He said it's fine and he can help set it up. I'd bring mine... but it's a tiny thirteen inch tv.

I could attempt to bring a TV. Don't hold me to it though, since I'm already bringing my DC and PS2.

You could juts take caltrain at 5th(or is it 4th?) and kings. When you get off at Lawrence your pratically there, its just a few blocks.  Thats how I plan on getting there if I'm still going.  Finals have been brutal though.  I still have an animation and my final reel to put together.
