Title: First time going to Fanimecon? ^^
Post by: mookiebear on April 18, 2013, 06:33:02 PM
This is my first year going to Fanimecon, and also my first time cosplaying. I'm going as Sesshomaru from InuYasha.
Fanimecon falls on my birthday, and I'm wondering if anyone is looking for someone to meet there?
Basically anyone in my age range 17-20+ would be fine. I'm turning 19 next month, soo yeah.
Anyone interested in meeting a new friend? (:

Well, it's gonna be my first Fanime also, so I guess we can meet up over there! I'm going to meet with some other folks over there as well for lunch and meetups, so you're welcome to join us! :)

Hmm, probably near the entrance at the convention center. What day are you going?

I'm going all of the days as far as I know xD.

Post by: limDsage on April 18, 2013, 08:08:58 PM
Haha cool! I'll probably be there on Saturday and Sunday or maybe just Saturday or Sunday depending on how things go.

I won't be able to cosplay though because I don't have time to make my Admiral Kizaru from One Piece outfit. I'll just wear my custom hoodie of the Admiral cloak and maybe put on a yellow, red, or blue shirt and shoes. lol

Anyone else interested in meeting up with me? I'm a shy person so I don't really do good in huge meetups, I was hoping someone would wanna just meet up with me and become friends. :X

If you'd like, I could meet you too :) I'm always open to meet friends. Also, if you like Pokemon(or at least think it's cute), I suggest going to this Pokemon Dinner I'm hosting at fanime :) It's most likely somewhere cheap and last time, we all sat at a table and introduced ourselves and chatted. It was a really calming way to make friends. I also suggest going to gatherings even if you don't have costumes. ^__^ There are lots of nice people at Fanime. I'm sure you can make a ton of friends :)

Well if your coming in Thursday we are holding a dinner meet & greet that night. We will also do a Friday one too for those that miss Thursday. Its not much of a huge group, last year was about 10 or so people.

http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,17561.140.html

If you wish just to hang out before night m&g we could do so too, just let us know which times your be available. Like me I'm not much of a morning person, I'm like dead till 10:00 am, depends how late I stayed up the night before.

Fanime is very good place to go every year with old/new friends :) everyone's welcoming and non-judgmental (however you will run into some radical cosplayers who think people should fit characters based on real looks) and just warm hearted. Once you get used to the layout of both floors you'll be running around everywhere taking tons of photos and seeing awesome ass costumes!

Not to sound or look like a total creeper/stalker but I don't go around adding people I haven't meet on FB especially young girls like yourself.

But really don't worry about not getting friend requests on fb. Once your at the con you'll find it much easier to talk to people face to face, well that's if your not too shy. And don't worry we can meet up at the con and we can be friends.
See that last part really did sounded creepy. I can't win with this topic. Even now everything every dude said in this thread is a bit shady.  :o  :-[

Uhm, I'm an adult ? I think I can meet up with people near my age group, so long as you're not really past 25..... Besides, I'll have family with me so ?.... >_>

We are men, we are automatically shady by default, especially at an anime convention.

.......oh snap...no one look at my profile...... See, I just can't seem to win in with this topic.
*lame attempt to not sound creepy*
I'm just here to offer some friendly advice since I been going them for a while now, and I started going to cons alone but making new friends each time. Chances are you'll won't meet anyone from the forums and highly likely to meet some one while waiting inline, or some where else.

Does anyone ever really look at profiles? o_O I mean, I wouldnt think theres anything remotely interesting on them... Mine isn't anyway. I think creepy people are those who try too hard not to be creepy. It kinda loops back into itself.

I've never met anyone from the forum, but I have met quite a few people of all ages while waiting in line, or sitting down outside, in a hallway resting, or the gaming room.  I kind of keep a low profile around here, so there isn't much for anyone to go by other than my warm and fuzzy avatar.  I'd meet with you but I just got age disqualified a few posts ago, lol. :o

its pretty easy to make new friends, whether is sitting in line, or just complementing someone on their cosplay or cool swag that they have... id like to think most people are friendly at the convent.

Dont forget staff are all Fans, too.
See ya around the convention!

I'll be wandering around as Russell on Saturday, but without balloons unfortunately...

Being a rover, I have to mention that there is a " NO BALLOONS " policy inside the convention center >_<
if the balloons get away from you and get stuck on the ceiling or pop near fire sprinklers... it would be all bad and very wet and soggy for the convention center...

so please let all the pinkies out there, as much as we love parties and balloons... we cannot use helium or lighter than air filled balloons...  :-\
