My friend selling stuff in AA is asking me to help sell some leftover cosplay posters he has. He gave me 1 Spidey poster (16" x 22") and 2 Zabuza posters (24" x 36"). He told me to sell Spidey poster for $5 and the Zabuza for $10. Anyone interested in buying one of these on the last day?

Explore. Do what I want, when I want. Strike up conversations with randos for fun if we have similar interests. Try to learn something at panels. Do my best to be charismatic and friendly.

>I can't go more than a few minutes without talking about my suicidal ideations.

Never go for this. Only villains do this.

You are basically telling people up front
>"I am not a good time to be around, and even if you get to know me, I may off myself in a year from now, so there's no point in getting to know me anyways. I offer nothing of value to this current greeting other than to dump my emotional baggage on you, which is not fun when we are in a place where we are supposed to be enjoying ourselves and letting loose.".

Look, I get you're suffering, but that's not going to earn you any friends by trying to endear people to your self depreciation. Find a hobby, be knowledgeable about it, and find people with similar interests you can share a passion about, and not just doom and gloom "whoa is me". I am not trying to legitimize your feelings, but introductions and trying to make lasting friendships don't start with that.

I didn’t mean it in a mean way, it probably came off like that. I just mean it’s easier to forget people who arnt worth your time and focus on positive interactions than to be on the look out for those that lead to bad vibes. Try making those into randoms in your head, it’s healthier.

Honestly you just gotta approach people that look like you'd get along with and go places inside the convention that have the interests you have. I meet some cool guys that play the same video games I play without that even being the intent. And i could have socialized better!

Also take care of yourself if you're depressed that is something that you can work on. I can relate to idealizing suicide as well. You need to find a corner of your life that you have control of (for me its certain video games, or my phone being organized) and use that to prove to yourself that you CAN get control of your life. Then slowly spread that outward to other categories of your life.

Some perspective for you: I went with 5 online friends and WISH I would have gone alone because I could have had more fun socializing with new people and going places after the con. My friends all have egos and don't want to socialize with anyone outside of the group. Plus they were lazy and didn't want to do anything outside of buy stuff. But grass is always greener on the other side. Going with friends/going alone isn't going to single handedly make the con fun.

I live close by so i always end up going no matter how shitty it may be. But if i had to pay money on hotel and flights i wouldn't even bother. You could go to Japan for just about the same. You'd probably waste less money actually. Assuming you went at a time when roundtrips are like 500-600. That's what i did couple months ago. And hotel only ran me 60 bucks a night.

I live about an hour drive away and getting a hotel room completely changed how I approached the con mentally. I'm not in so much of a rush, it's nice to take a shuttle/bus back to the hotel room if you want to take a break from standing in a line, and I got to enjoy the surrounding area of downtown LA.

Don't get me wrong, Daikokuya is a really great price-to-quality ratio and I have no trouble recommending it to out-of-towners. I just cringe a bit when people call it the "best" of anything. It's comfort food. You go there to get reliable, unambitous flavor.

The generally regarded best ramen by locals (your mileage may vary) is Tsujita on the westside. Keep in mind that it's VERY rich, almost gravy-like, and that's before you get into the tsukemen. So if you're not looking for a super decadent experience with your ramen it may not be for you. It's also not gonna solve your "wait" problem because it's absurdly popular.

Tatsunoya (Pasadena) and Tengoku (Koreatown) both do a mean tonkotsu. Tasunoya is more "traditional" and Tengoku is more americanized/fusiony-y.

I also like Tatsu (it's a small chain) well enough, but I feel it's overhyped.

Yeah, I realized I was being an elitist so I figured I'd make it up by being less of a shitter when asked an earnest question.

I'm kind of a snob about LA food so when I saw "Daikokuya" and "best" together I knee jerked.

I am that Anon! The one recommending ramen, not the donut guy.

I like Astro donuts a lot! The donuts are fucking great, though as other Anons have already observed the fried chicken doesn't really rate.

My favorite donuts in/near LA, and I'm wearing my pretension on my sleeve here, are Sidecar Donuts in Santa Monica. They're very "bread"-y (I don't know how to describe it, basically they use less of a cake flour and more of a bread flour?) which doesn't do much for some people but I can't get enough of it, and their savory donuts are to die for.

Honestly the meetups aren't really worth it unless you're already a regular member of their online group. Most that will happen is that you'll get brought to a hotel room and make some awkward small talk while drinking, and you'll get kicked out because there's too many people in the room and the newbies are the first to go.

Getting my picture taken and given compliments by an insane number of people this year.

Making friends with an artist in AA over her merch of the character I was cosplaying the next day. She asked me to swing by so she could see it. I did. She looked so happy and even took a picture of me. Good feels.

Posted in the last thread, but this little girl loved my costume so much that she made getting a picture of me sound like getting free tickets to Disneyland and then proceeded to very excitedly wave and call out my character's name as she saw me again hours later. Best con memory yet.

>worst
Promised Neverland panel. All of the questions were: "did you have fun voicing the characters?" "yeah :)", "tell me a lil about what went into making Isabella's theme?" "well she's evil so we wanted to make it spooky :9" Like jesus christ, how fucking uninteresting. Then the """super special AX-only video, especially provided by the generous gods at Aniplex""" was a laughable mishmash of the english and japanese versions of the first few minutes of the show. Every other line switched from one language to the other. It was so jarring to listen to. I missed out on two other premieres and the Bisco Hatori panel for it, just to be spit in the face by this.

The line situation was so disorganized by the South Hall on Day 1 that my friend went to go ask a staff member for clarification as to which direction the line was moving in because people were going every which way and the fucking staff member said she had no clue either but to go ask the people at the West Hall. Your brain would have to be real damn smooth to think that was an appropriate answer to give.

Being completely drained of energy by the end of Day 2 that I didn't make it to day 3 like I had planned. I didn't buy everything I wanted or got a chance to explore Exhibit Hall to the fullest extent. I'm still so bummed about that.

Talking with an Eve cosplayer for a quick minute about the character before he had to bounce. Dude was really friendly and clearly into the series into as much as I was once we started talking about what made the character so interesting and cool. Wish I managed to actually engage with other people like that but oh well.

Meeting up with an old friend was also super nice, even if we didn't do all that much but walk around. It's too bad the entertainment hall didn't have too many exclusives, because playing fighting games at anime expo just felt sort of dumb.

The homestuck gathering was as dumb and obnoxious as I thought it would be, but it was more fucking organized than the AX lines and really, really endearing in a juvenile sort of way. Bless the Terezi telling the group to clear a path for any and all passerbys, they really made an effort to actually not cause a fucking problem for anyone, which I think says a lot.

AX Dance Saturday night went really fucking hard, even if I couldn't get all that much into it. R3LL and Hyper Potions were both great.

The general fucking pangs of loneliness that stuck around during the dance.

Granblue merch selling out fast as fuck was a huge bummer because it was the main thing I was looking forward to getting.

The atrocious planning in some regards. Karaoke wait times of 2-4 hours is unreal, and I got dicked out of the Granblue panel because I didn't know there was a second line outside.

Not having enough time to do everything in one day, but I feel like I'm much more prepared for next year. Shame I didn't start going to cons earlier, because it's only a matter of time before I'm "old." Missed out on several gatherings and the artist alley.

I'm not buying a ticket unless something I'm actually interested in is announced. And even then, just for that day.
For 4 years I'd been buying early bird for price reasons, hoping there would be at least one event a day I'd be interested in, but this year I was bored out of my skull by day 3. Any panels I wanted to go to were in non-clearing rooms, and the undulating mass that eventually turned into the Promare 'line' didn't look worth the wait, heat, or stress. Why would you not ticket this?
At least Human Lost was great.

Screenshot their locations, no more fucking linecon for me, I wasted too much time with that bullshit.

i still don't get the apples to oranges comparison between ax spending and japan trip in these threats, minus the large costs for both. Japan is so much more than an otaku destination. I pity those who spend thousands just to never leave the confines of Tokyo. On the contrary, even the worst american anime fan is more sociable than the average otaku.

Lines and ropes were erected around the center with staff holding up "line ends here" signs and actually pointing people in the direction that the line needed to go. Mysteriously, another line still converged at one point but staff seemed to know about it so I guess it was intentional.

God FUCK I hate people who bring their babies and small children to this damn con. WHY. A con like AX is no place for them, it's hot, it's SMELLY, the con plague is abundant, and you have to travel on foot everywhere, not to mention any random amount of inappropriateness a kid might see.

to all asking about bukkitbrown:

Look, I thought she/they was cool. We were mutuals, commented on each other's posts. But here's the bizarre shit that went down. I WISH I was a lying harlot desu.

A friend of mine was sitting on the corner watching our bags near the magnet sculpture area where all the cosplayers whore out for photos. Bukkit started taking pictures in her mononoke cosplay right behind us. I left to go check on a friend who was taking photos in the parking during this time and bukkit qnd her loser boyfriend decided it would be hella funny to start framing my friend in the background of their photos. Without permission of course. Because when you're a "famous"cosplayer you don't ask for pictures you just take shitty pjots that amuse you for your fucking hashtag gains. basically my friend moved out of their frame several times and they followed her with the camera, making sure she was in the backdrop. She couldn't leave because she was guarding all our stuff. She wasn't even cosplaying -- just wearing a Meta Lolita dress.
they thought it was hilarious that she started glaring at them and that she got upset while they laughed, and finally she fled with all our things.When confronted, bukkit's loser bfaccused accused us of being unreasonable for questioning her. I was legitimately upset because I had previously admired her as a cosplayer and now I know she's two-faced.

Luckily said friend who was harassed is very close friends with talent management and they will not be hiring bukkit on the future. Enjoy losing 20k.

This is how I feel about most women honestly. I'm not gay either, it's just that trading so much time and energy to have a girlfriend doesn't seem worth it. I've had a couple before, and looking back I sacrificed so fucking much free time to them. One of them I even had to lie to occasionally, because she'd act like a whiny pissy piece of shit when I hung out with friends one day out of the week instead of with her.

Honestly this year I was a little worried it would be weird since I was going premier and he wasn't, but I had a better time without him. I'm usually pretty good at talking to people, and he's definitely shy, so whenever I'm talking with someone and he's there it's just fucking weird. He's hovering on the side of the conversation, not really participating.

They really gave 0 fucks about the experience this year. All they cared about was making sure that no one ghosted the con. The AMVs were a mess. There were no major concerts. Three panels that I went to had the wrong times and nobody could determine when they were actually supposed to start. They didn't even have anyone staffing the AA this year, that shit had to have been a fire hazard.

Oh, I forgot, they did have people staffing the AA--only when they needed to close the room. The solid wall of people in each aisle on Saturday had no one directing anybody or capping the hall, but at 5:50, some pasty bearded fat fuck started screaming at me to move towards the door. Even when I kept walking, he kept yelling. I just walked into a different aisle and stayed until it actually closed.

They won best in show despite having done the same skit/costumes at at least wondercon where they won aswell.

While that's definitely lazy as shit, were they still objectively better than the other contestants?

Everyone elsethat deserved an award for the most part got one but it's def lazy as shit as all they did was change the style of music on their skit i think? If they had improved the costumes further i could see that being okay. I wouldn't say "objectively" better but a strong contender. It just irks me that they not only sandbagged but they weren't anime costumes which i recall AX having a rule against unless they've changed it

Kuzco, Mulan and Jafar, a Disney musical skit type deal.

Yeah that is pretty annoying to see them win a cosplaying tournament at an anime convention. I'll just go out on a limb here and say that most of the audience wasn't aware of them winning previous shows doing the same thing

How are you going to invite people to a CGL meet-up but make them feel like complete lepers the second they show up to it? Not sure if was nitch but they should have made that more apparent if they didn't want everyone showing up, one guy I tried speaking to didn't even look at me or really acknowledge me as I tried speaking to him just stared into his phone as if life depended on it till he pretended to take a call on it so I made it my mission to make them all feel as uncomfortable as possible because why invite people to a meet-up then act rude as shit, my jimmies got all the way russled.

I think next year I'm gonna skip the meetup. It's absolutely pointless unless you're part of the inner circle
>meetup outside west hall at 9
>always have to struggle to find it because they can't be bothered to say anything like whos wearing what, or where exactly they are
>Now that you've actually found the meetup you can talk to them for anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour
>At this time they'll start heading back to the JW for a party
>10-20 people get crammed into one hotel room
>after about 20 minutes of this the host tells everyone to leave, but of course the inner group stays and continues the party
>now you're left trying to figure out what to do for the rest of the night since you wasted about two hours with people who never had any intention of keeping you around long enough to become friends
May as well just go to public parties that won't kick you out after a half hour

Meetup at the top of the stairs inside west hall was pretty chill. Regardless, we didn't really get to know each other and all got kicked out of the room within about an hour. I got pretty hammered though, so I won't complain! Thank you based Joseph joestar cosplayer for your disgusting seagrams gin <3

Why do they even have a meetup if all it's going to be, is some clique circle jerking among themselves? Shit's retarded, way to act like autists when they can't even talk to people or be friendly.

In hopes that girls from the threads join. Basically the only reason. When the party goes back to the hotel room and everyone is getting kicked out, they'd definitely let any girl who wants to stay

That defeats the purpose of a meet up, like a catch 22. Why have meet ups when you're not wanting to meet new people?

Maybe you're just awkward and dismissive. The ones I met were pretty nice and there was no `inner circle`

>there was no inner circle
This is just a blatant lie. I've met some nice people at the meetup, but there absolutely is an inner circle. You see it everytime they decide the hotel party has gotten too crowded. They kick everyone but the inner circle out.
