The Awesome
  • Getting a ShamWOW

The Good
  • Driving to my first convention ever and making it there alive!
  • Having great roomates who were mindful of each other and paid~ ([profile] doorknocker_dog, [profile] elf_1half, [livejournal.com profile] __kaze__, [profile] sleepy_syusuke, [profile] rhapsody_in_rue and her boyfriend, and Miranda (our room/line Ninja))
  • Cooosplay group with David and Natasha. Pretty much being ourselves.
  • Getting a room with a view! FINALLY!
  • lololol not standing in line for the masquerade. Panelist FTW!
  • Running the panel AniMyu & Prince of Tennis. Learned a lot more like doing a panel a few hours beforehand is not a good idea. I really had no choice and was pretty dead... better next time!
  • Haaaaanging out with everyone. Seeing people, even for a brief second, was awesome. I know we were all busy and like "GAH MUST DO THIS"
  • Eating meals. Keeping them down was another story, but at least I ate them!
  • Arriving home. Guh.

    The Bad
  • DAT. CON.
  • Cosplay? Wut? Did anyone try? This refers to the ones I DIDN'T know. Really, saw no surprises. EXCEPT THAT PETSHOP OF HORRORS DUO. Other than that...
  • CosPlot... what. the. fuck. Was there any point to that?
  • Vomiting after every meal for two days. Don't know how I did not get dehydrated.
  • Elevators! The little shits that thought "lololol LETS PRESS EVERY BUTTON IN THE ELEVATOR." Next year I'm investing in a jet pack or something.
  • Taking 16 flights of stairs to get to the room.
  • DRIVING HOME FROM DAT CON. Srsly. Rain marking the end of the world? Not fun. GETTING A FLAT TIRE 30 MINUTES FROM HOME? ABOUT TO DIE. Without that random guy who helped us we'd still be in Long Island City.
  • Dealers room having like... nothing.

    The Ugly
  • MASQUERADE! Save for a few skits... what WAS that? This isn't animenext you know! (zing)
  • This is my 23rd convention......... AND I GET CONFLU. FIRST EVER. Got a bad cold. Not a happy camper. Not with AnimeNEXT in two weeks D:

    The Outcome
  • After going to AnimeBoston for 6 years I think it's my time to stop. Unless they get a freakin' amazing guest I just can't push myself to go anymore. I really sat and asked myself; "So why am I going?" I got nothing =/

    ANYWAY. I know what you want... Con pictures can be found here!

    But here are a couple of my favorites:

    Hooooly shit terrifying.

    Can't reach!

    I have this fear of being picked up/swung/dipped. I immediately freaked out when we did this.

    Not pictured but at one point during the con he had like 20 people tied up.

    Mamo kissu~

    Nicole Setsuna and his Mario Tieria story time face:







    It's a show about terrorism.

That kind of sounds like me with Ohayo Con. All of my friends go, but it's just a horrible con ran by a horrible bitch of a con chair. I don't think I can accept my self to go any more and I've been attending it since '02. I hate to give it up, but I would rather try a new con then to suffer and have a miserable time at a shitty con.

For me it's just I need to concentrate on school work. AB in 2010 is in the beginning of April, not a great time school wise.

Ew, that isn't a good time to hold a con at all.

That is my new absolute favorite picture ever.

This is my 23rd convention
HOLY SHIT! I thought I had a lot with 12! ^^;; Feel better in any case.

PET SHOP OF HORRORS! Pics or it didn't happen. Would you happen to have pictures? <-Avid fan.

...at least you have awesome pics of yourself? ^^b;;

I'm an old fart. lol thanks though. Damn AB.

I don't have pictures but they did have a skit! So pictures should be floating around.

XD yeah I never usually do get those.

I watched a couple skits so far on ACP and I am not impressed.
I was like "What? Masquerade worse than AnimeNEXT. Fail." At least AnimeNEXT is getting better bit by bit

=/ the pre-game show was so much better.

lol I truly believe nothing has changed with AN...

There's only a handful of couple good skits every year from them. At least it's better than I-Con's. That's always a plus XD

Yeahhh, I've been looking at con pictures and reading reports from there, no cosplays, or anything else I saw blew me away or made me go "Why couldn't I go?!". But still, I'm a little jealous. I spent my weekend doing schoolwork and it seemed like EVERYONE ELSE was at a convention! ;_;

Also, doesn't it seem like dealers room/artist alley make or break the con? >w>''

WHAT TWO WEEKS. ANIMENEXT IS IN TWO WEEKS?! THAT MEANS I HAVE ABOUT TWO WEEKS TO GO FOR SCHOOL. I'M FREAKING OUT ;___; I hope I can go to at least a day, I'd really like to. Cons are fun. But it's right in between my finals schedule >_>'

Well because there were like... 5 conventions this weekend right? Such a busy time.

lol not really, but because everything was so "meh" i figured buy shit would make me feel better.

Aw that's too bad! You are totally right about the dealers room. I was looking for 4 things and they didn't have one of them, I usually spend butt loads of money in the dealers room, this year I spent $30.

You go to so many cons! AB is the only one I've ever gone to, I don't even know why I go every year... I stopped liking anime 2 years ago. I didn't even bother going to the masquerade (I went to Bad Anime Bad and from what you say that was probably better) or on Sunday. But I still thought it was better than last year.

lol I've been at this for a long long time. I'd say if you want to go to cons, go to Otakon. It has something for everyone, not just anime fans.

I want to go to Otakon soooo badly. My friend is even doing a Johnnys panel this year. But I think it's probably too late for me to get a hotel room...

Is it Christy? Because wed didn't get it =/ but the JE meet up is still on.

I miiiight have room in my room. But right now it could go either way.

I don't know who that is but someone is doing it... I know that [livejournal.com profile] lady_mercury is cohosting.

Let me know if you do. That would be so cool cos I've never done anything like that before XD; I'm really quiet and clean hahaha. But if you don't that's cool too, it's not meant to be.

From: [identity profile] jubeichan.livejournal.com
Whaaat really? Ohh Otakon. They told us a JE panel would be way too boring.

I've gotta ask to double check. We have so many may-bes but we don't want 8 people in the room again.

:3 we have the room if you'd like to join us~ [livejournal.com profile] alchemy_of_yaoi is going to be in there too!

Ooooh I have to run it past my parents first ^.^;; but I'm really interested in going. How much is it going to be? And which hotel?

my email is ryan227@gmail.com in case you want to email me.

Good report and nice pictures. But I'm gonna be a little narcissistic here and say I worked hella hard on my costume XD I think as long as people enjoy themselves it's not a waste, though I definitely agree that most of the masq skits were awful.

Date: 2009-05-26 04:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jubeichan.livejournal.com
It was pretty much a reference to the half-assed costumes where it was pretty obvious any effort was a second thought.

Ohh the masquerade. AB usually has a few winners.

Date: 2009-05-26 04:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] mysticblossom.livejournal.com
Yeah, I can understand that. Maybe it's just me, but the masquerade at AB seems to have way more awful skits that (badly) use memes for a laugh, or ramble on and on. That one youth skit that employed like 12 different series was particularly annoying, though I feel kind of bad saying it since they were all so young...

Man, I wish I went if only just to see you guys wear your Code Geass stuff! You make SUCH an adorable Cecile! And, lol, you know how I feel about Nina. I love David as Lloyd and Natasha as both Momo/Suzaku. Seriously, I want to play with you guys wearing costumes from those series. BAWWW.

Great photos and I laughed heartily about the cosplay. I looked at photos on ACP and yea, surprisingly a lot less amazing cosplay this year. AND THE SKITS. bahahahaha. I only watched three because friends were in it, but just looking at the series of the others I refrained from touching the play button.

Glad you had fun- miss you lady!

I know Nina makes you hot and bothered. We can always get dressed and put on a private show for you <3

Those skits... bleh, I'm so happy I did NOT wait in line or else I would have been upset.

You were with us in spirit! I'll be seeing you soon one way or another right?

I concur you make a fantastic Cecile! =)
