Alright bitches, one of the most meh of summer cons is next month. What are your cosplay plans? Are you traveling from out of state to attend? Is there anything in particular you’re looking forward to? Are you an oldfag that is absolutely jaded by this convention but use it as an excuse to do molly and drink nonstop with total strangers for 4 days? Let’s discuss!

>> No.10142116

Got my badge and my time off approved! Not traveling out of state, this will be my 4th time. I heard they fixed the lines so after 3 years off I'll see how it goes. Going to be one of the 1,000 Links there.

Looking forward to some gatherings, most of the panels on the forums seem kinda meh, but maybe something will pique my interest. I do wish they hadn't moved the ball from the Fairmont Hotel. It was beautiful there. The hall next to that museum is ugly and still overcrowded. Also not sure if I should crossplay at the ball. Prince style or poofy ball gown? Hard to choose...

How is everyone else feeling about this Fanime?

>> No.10142802

I’m pretty excited, not necessarily for the con itself, but because I’ll be spending my 4 days off with my partner, doing weeb shit. I’m hoping to attend the ball but seeing as it’s not really my partner’s thing, I’ll probably be going by myself. I’m also looking forward to the j-fashion show.

>> No.10142844

Yeah the con is alright, but there's lots of stuff to check out which makes it fun for me. It's nice you get to go with your partner, I've gone solo the past 2 times. The ball is one of my highlights, but man sometimes you get some awkward dance partners. One guy was just reeeeeeally sweaty. I always miss the j-fashion show, maybe I'll actually make it for once!

>> No.10142848

The two times I’ve been to the fashion show were really fun, so I definitely recommend going!

I hope I can make it! Why are fashion shows usually early, ugh.

What do you usually like to do? Are you cosplaying or showing off some new coords?

I got lucky with the holiday and was able to get the rest of my time off approved. I asked way in advance, a lot of people want it off, some for Fanime as well!

>> No.10143054

Hopefully you can go! I need to take some time to plan out a coord.

>> No.10143161

Anyone know any decent cosplay photographers who typically attend fanime? We're traveling and don't know who's worth paying/etc. For a Photoshoot.

>> No.10143350

If it's around the same time as a meetup I'm going to I may end up there in cosplay. So I don't have to tote around a coord and one or two cosplays. I'm just imagining the baggage... Multiple petticoats.

Extra holiday pay is good at least. I was on a year probation awhile back. It sucked, missed pretty much all the events that year. Still hope you have a good time!

Unfortunately no, but maybe there are some people on the forums who have had good photoshoots done. But I wouldn't know how reliable that info is.

>oldfag that is absolutely jaded by this convention

I thought I was the only one.

But seriously, I've been going since '05 and this year is probably the last year that I'm going for a full weekend. It's been interesting to see how the con has changed over the years (and how normie-passive it's become), but the novelty has definitely worn off. I'm sure I'm going to enjoy myself nonetheless, but to nowhere near the same degree I once did.

>> No.10143399

I’ve been going on and off since 2005, and I think this will also be my last year going for the full weekend. It’s the only con I’ve gone to and I realize that I need to branch out and try out other ones. Fanime will always have a special place in my heart.

>> No.10144927

If you go to Fanime, hit up CWF

>> No.10146367

Any guests seem interesting? I usually pass on guest panels and whatnot because I have no idea who anyone is. If I have time I might go to a panel, but the lineup seems meh.

>> No.10151365

I was thinking of buying one of those 160 dollar pikachu costumes to cosplay for the first time. I've never cosplayed before and I'm too old and ugly to be doing face cosplay.

This is my first time coming to Fanime, anyone have opinions on the food situation? Should I grocery shop before the con?

>> No.10152059

It's gonna be my 12th year. I'm excited for CWF, and a little miffed the panel my roommates and I put on got waitlisted but it's whatever. I hope the game room has some good stuff this year and lots of table space for board games/card games. Last year it felt like they really downsized that stuff.

Lots of good places to eat 1-3 blocks from the con center, plus street dog vendors right outside at all hours. If you don't mind paying 10-20 per meal at those places and a wait you'll be fine. There is also a safeway about 2 blocks from the con center so you don't have to worry about packing a bunch of groceries in the car before getting there.

>> No.10152088

I’m a vegetarian so I can only comment on the meatless options but my god does downtown SJ have the hookup when it comes to food. The restaurants are pretty decently priced overall, and like >>10152059
mentioned, there’s also that Safeway. It’s a godsend to have a grocery within walking distance from the hotels.

>usual con group goes to AX for the past 6-7 years
>getting bored of AX, we all decide on Fanime
>don't have money for both cons
did we make a mistake?

>> No.10152628

Depends? What did you like about AX? It seems more industry, but has lots of exclusive merch. That seems to be the main reason many people go. (And concerts)
Fanime is more chill, like a hang out con. They finally fixed the line problem for badge pickup, but the lines for panels are still long. It's also hot last weekend of May, but there's plenty of shade and a nice nearby parks. There are lots of good restaurants nearby as well.
The con is kind of spread out at nearby hotels, the con center itself, and its connecting hotels. So there is some walking, but not too bad. Shuttle lines can be long. The meetups for different shows/games are awesome and always fun for me. The masquerade is meh and I usually skip. But that's just me.
Idk about the guests much, they seem okay. There's dances and a ball, gaming, panels of course, and tons of awesome cosplay.
I do hope you have fun!

>> No.10152790

Our group all loves AX, hut we're just super tired of the large crowds. I realize Fanime still has a lot of people but not as much as AX so we can live with that. Thanks for the tips about the area.

>> No.10152847

No prob! If AX's numbers are true, fanime is like a third? of the size. Some spots are of course crowded, but everyone is spread out enough that you aren't suffocated the whole con.

>> No.10153220

Definitely looking forward to the convention, but I'm for sure at the jaded oldfag state. Fanime has always been a sort of reunion since I've lived away from most of my long time friends for the past decade, but I live close to all those people now so it's a bit less special seeing them. I know it will still be a great weekend but it'll be hard to feel that magic I once felt. That said it's my 10th fanime so I'm hoping I can get something real special out of it.

Food situation is good overall. Thanks to the nearby college, there are many chain restaurants, snack places, bars, coffee shops, and a Safeway within walking distance. You might want to check out the trendy "food court" type places, of which there are two. One is called San Pedro Square, the other is called SoFA Market (don't remember what that stands for). It will be crowded, but you can count on getting good food.

Eyyy I'm an oldlita. Waving my parasol at kids these days with their Kpop and polyester.

But it's nice to know there's others around my age. Feels weird when you're surrounded by kids half your age at various cons/events. Makes me just want to cosplay in my backyard where only my weird old neighbor will judge me.

I feel like at the gatherings at Fanime have a decent amount of older people. Then they mysteriously vanish.

>> No.10158842

Lonelita has always been the way to go for me. But I'm not much of a people person anyway. I get bored sometimes at events, don't dress lolita at cons cause I'm cosplaying, and almost never see any in the wild. The few I have seen outside tend to actually be in their 20's or older. At events everyone seems pretty young.

Could always form the 25+ or Lolitas Who Are Old AF and Tired of Yo Shit Brigade.

>> No.10158855

I'm 22 but have been attending cons for nearly a decade now and have been cosplaying for just as long. Ngl even though I'm the average con-goer age, I feel super old and jaded because I watched as the cos comm went from fans who painstakingly crafted their costumes to a fight for internet fame. I don't fit in with the Instagram cosplayer crowd that most people who are my age are a part of and yet I'm too young to really fit in with the true oldfag crowd. It's a weird position to be in.

I went to fanime as my first con last year and drove to and from on the same day since I only live about an hour away from SJ. Now i'm staying 3 days/2 nights and got an airbnb like >>10160365 said. I can do the con thing, still mingle with folks and go back to crash or quickly change as needed. One of the biggest regrets about going last year was not being able to visit the rooms of friends I had made for terribly long because I worked the next day.

first of all i dont think a young girl can or will get raped by a much older man, i think it only happens when he or a she forces themselves on another without consent or she says no, a young girl may give consent to an older guy she finds attractive.

rape can happen no matter the age of the two, a girl can get raped from a guy her same age or he is younger, or by a girl.

so if a young girl likes a much older guy and he is respectful and she gives consent then its not rape, but can be very beautiful :)

Well it was a literal retard so I thought it was safe to assume it was you. I did martial arts for a few weeks when I was five and there’s this ancient saying in kung fu “the early bird takes the worm” so I snuck up on her and threw a right punch. It landed right on her nose. And just as she fell out of her wheelchair I kicked her right in the stomach. I ran away before staff came so I don’t know if she’s dead or not. I bet after hearing my story you’re too scared to fight me now and it’s okay because if I was you I would be too. Just bow down three times and call me grandpa and I’ll let you off.

Half the questions were predetermined. The other half were your usual tripe, but the the opening fan question was of some autist asking about the trans character in Catherine. When that happened, half the audience cringed, the other half was dead silent. Then the autist was asked to change his question, so he just asked stupid shit about Persona. He was asked to repeat himself because he was spilling spaghetti, so he then asked an entirely different Persona question. What a tone fucking setter.

At cons i believe its really easy for girls to get laid by any guy she wants (usually in general) but the social stigma against women pursuing sex is still prevalent today kept alive by incels, trolls and people who want to keep women down, aka rats of the old ways.

That and men who play girls into sex but who dont value women, nor treat them right and well and even dangerous men.

To combat this i suggest that men interested in sex wear a sign thst indicates their desire for sex, a subtle Accessory, like jelly bracelets (its color coded lol ) or spades as it looks like a dick going up a butt lol

And girls wear a mask or something that covers the eyes as that makes it hard to identify them ( and they can argue that they didnt know, its just part of costume

The guys hang out at a usual spot at the same time every year (like the entrance at 5:30 pm, entrance) and the girls look for guys with those signs of sexual interest, and say or ask random things like i love that thing you have or bought. Or where is this? And that way you can get to know him a little first

Its up to the girl to keep things going because if the guy is making the moves he may be mistaken of a girls interest or a white knight may come to break it up

Sex is a fun, beautiful, empowering thing that if done with the right person will make you happy, feel loved and even heal a broken heart, give you confidence

Spread love not hate :)

Is it fair to say that Fanime is mainstream now? I don't mean in the convention circuit, necessarily; I mean as far as people in The Bay are concerned, people who aren't weebs are actually somewhat informed about what it is and what people do there, almost to the point where they want to check it out themselves. I took an Uber to/from lunch on Saturday and my driver brought up the idea that it reminded her of Exotic Erotic Ball (of all things.) If Fanime is indeed "mainstream," do you think that has anything to do with the direction the con's atomsphere has taken in recent years?

>> No.10183847

Mainstream in the sense that now people know it's a thing. 8 years ago a can driver thought it was done pride event, so more recognition is a good thing in my eyes. I'm general anime had also become more mainstream so it's not necessarily Fanime that is attracting this new crowd of people.
