Fanime 2013 meetup

I know it's a while off but I think it would be good to have this in the works now so we can do cool stuff. Maybe give some people a place to crash, Do more stuff together, etc. I'll make a google doc and maybe people can put suggestions in.

Take this survey so we can get a basic Idea of who's going. LINK

    4/5. Im not saying that this con was f'n amazing, i just didnt like how the line took 5 hours to get through. But still, I got all the loot, took all the pics, and had a kickass time hanging out with my bay area friends (most of you anyway XD)

      I got to wait for 6 hours on Thursday with everyone just to hang out and NOT get my ticket. LineCon2013. It was actually really fun being in line though at least for my group! At least on Friday I got to skip ahead of ALL the lines. Took like five minutes to get my badge and I didn't even Pre-Reg. Cons are weird! xD

    I realize something as I am typing this, instead of playing Ingress all evening I could've strayed around the Artist Alley for a bit longer and probably met the lot of you that I've never met before. That is my only regret. *headdesk*

    Amazing, but packed

    Their registration system could stand to be improved so we don't have to WAIT FOR HOURS ON END!! All that aside though, it was pretty awesome for a first time. Even if I was only there for a day.

      This one took a little longer because the line for pre-registration is usually in the convention center, but they had to move it somewhere else this year due to all the construction they're doing around it. But either way, I'm taking my Ipod next time so I don't get bored out of my mind.

      My hunch is that it'll be in the meetup area outside in between the Marriott and the Convention Center. At least that's where other meetups were happening.

      I will gladly take that hug! Can't believe I got off work hours early and rushed down to see it was closed and forgot half my cosplay in the process! Luckily it's the part I can replace at any local walnart

    So, I notice a LOT of Saturday scheduling. I'll only be able to make it on Sunday afternoon + Monday... will bronies be hanging out in the same places? Or should I just run around the con shaking hands?

    May 24, 2013

  • Michiko N.

    Everypony! Bring your cards (if you want to exchange)! :D I'm up for some trading, I have a lot of empty spaces.

    We need to plan something for the Saturday only people. I don't know the area or con or else I would suggest something but alas I am not an anime fan so this convention is foreign to me

    May 23, 2013

    • Michiko N.

      Oh, usually we all just hang out outside! I think you'll get the hang of it when you get there.

      May 23, 2013

  • Luis A.

    I'm going to be in the artist alley so hopefully I'll see some of you.

    May 23, 2013

    Is anyone cosplaying as anypony in the Apple family? Because I'll be cosplaying as Big Mac, and I'd love to get some pictures with other Apple family members! And I'd also be willing to be in a picture with any character shipping whether it's PinkieMac, FlutterMac, TwiMac, CherriMac, etc. I'm open to them all.

    May 20, 2013

    • Dee C.

      I think everyone's cosplaying as Big Mac...I know I am. I was going to try and do a Discord costume, but apparently you have to know how to sew to do something like that.

      May 22, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      Well he is a popular cosplay seeing as how he's one of the few male characters you see a lot.

    Ill be bringing ParaSprite Panic for anyone who wants to play

    May 21, 2013

    • Tyfighter

      Yes! That would be a great game to play in the game room!

      May 22, 2013

  • Michiko N.

    For the gathering, will it be all outside? To save up money (I'll be attending Anime Expo 2013 in LA in July), I'm thinking of going but NOT BUYING A BADGE. I can still hang outside and walk through the convention, I just can't go into Artist Alley, Panels, and all that. We're all hanging outside, right? <:D

    May 19, 2013

    • Tyfighter

      Where were you guys? The main entrance where the bus circle is?

      May 20, 2013

    • Michiko N.

      I would assume in that area, that's where most Cosplay groups hang out. BUT I do remember going by the convention center earlier this year and they were still reconstructing it.

      May 20, 2013

  • Eric Wu ( LyokoTravels )

    So I just recounted my bits. I might just come on Saturday ONLY

      I don't have a pony coplay. I'll be either Luffy or Link wearing a ton of pony buttons.

      i will be there friday and saturday in my renfair outfit. i really hope that there will be a meetup on sat. so i can get some photo shots like i did last year

    All right, I'm in. A bit late, but I'm in.

    I hope the at-con reg line isn't incredibly awful...just pretty awful.

      Well, we could hang while waiting, that always helps.

    I think we should have a gathering each day that way people only going one day can meet up aswell

  • Eric Wu ( LyokoTravels )

    Due to that I had to buy vending supplies for Everfree NW. Sald I can't go to Fanime because of that reason. I'll see if I can go last year

    May 16, 2013

  • Kyle

    Hey all, just figured I'd throw this out there.

    I understand that last year the meet-up kind flopped due to the fact that...well...it didn't come together. That said, though, that doesn't mean that we can't have an open invitation sort of meet-up going on while we're there, as it is a 4 day event. So, my suggestion is that if you're going to be one of the people who, like me, wants to join but doesn't really want to "stick to a plan" to comment here with your number, if you're skeptical about it then wait until about april or so to post it. The idea behind this is that we'll have a roster of floaters so people know who to look out for or possibly get in contact with to get updated on what the "main group" is currently doing.

    Simple idea but I figure since not everyone attending likes structure to the event, it'll make it a bit easier. It might also be nice to get a number for a "spokesman" to contact for the main group.

    All I know is that I'm going to be at the game room.
