Wow this con came and went! I had a greaaatt time and I've love to attend next year. Though I plan to take advantage of the other amenities I missed out on the hotel offered.

The hotel was really awesome and pretty. Apparently we aren't kicked out (I don't know how, did we all really spend all that money? I WANT MY CHOCOLATE DIPPED STRAWBERRIES). The con was also pretty good though I didn't really do anything with it aside from hosting a panel and the masquerade. Tara was awesome enough to let us help her out with her skit. I think it came out really good, and they got a judges award for it! I've never seen Katsu's judging system and was shocked at how rigid it was.

I spent more than I wanted to on more figures ahhaah... I'm so sad, I have a problem.

To everyone I saw, I had a great time with you! Too many to list and I'm not feeling the best but you know who you are and guuhh just the best crowd to have spend the con with! Even if I was all over the place.

Anyway here are some pictures, as usual the rest can be found in my album [ H E R E ]

Some of my favorites are under the cut.

I've been travelin
on this road to long
Just trying to find
my way back home
The old me
is dead and gone
dead and gone

On the ride home I just turned and looked to Vicky when this song came on (being stuck in Stanen Island traffic for 1hr) and we both agreed that was our song for the con.

The Good
  • Rooming with the girls, it was a lot of fun and full of special times.
  • Eating semi-well, it kept me alive.
  • Panels went so much better, for some reason anime/mangaNEXT always had the best audience reception. To all who cam to AniMyu & ConBudget thank you!
  • Spending less than $200 at this con. Including tolls & food & hotel room and everything else. WUUUT?
  • Going to the rave for the first time in 5 years and having fun. Though I felt at one point the music felt slow. Sometimes I wish they moved away from DDR music and gone into more main stream music. They mixed Womanizer well~
  • Not drowning in the flooded bridge
  • Hanging out with old friends and new ones. Gawd, cosplayers under 18 have so much talent!
  • Seeing a Charles cosplayer who spoke Ebonics. That is EXACTLY how I imagined him to be.
  • The mixed portion of the 18+ dating game killed me. In a GOOD way.
  • Parking was okay (IT WAS FREE!)

    The Bad
  • Where was this con? LOCATION WAS THE WORST THING. So out of the way from commuting, even driving there wasn't fun. Artist Alley in a small hallway in front of panels? I couldn't look at the art comfortably without someone bumping into me.

    Everything was everywhere. If they thought I was going to walk across the way to get to another part of the con they thought wrong. I felt like the con was everywhere but no where, it was just too confusing.

    Food, driving to get food sucked. Yes there was food inside of the con and honestly it was well priced. However, not everyone eats the same thing. More of a variety would be nice and useful.
    Also, all food places shutting down at 11pm? Not cool. Noooot cool. at 12am it'd be nice when we have 4 more hours of work a head of us. Sorry, even living in Farmingdale where pretty much everything was a small business I could still order food at 2am.

  • The cross over from the double tree to the main place wasn't really useful because of the crowds.
  • Feeling let down by the dealers room. Maybe I'm just at that state of mind recently.
  • Sub-par masquerade. A few good skits, a lot of really horrible. Nothing in the middle.
  • I was so over scheduled I had no time to find people I really wanted to spend time with.

    The Ugly
  • Nothing too horrifying but the confunk was pretty strong at this one.

    Over all feeling: Better than Anime Boston, maybe because it was closer to home, but not by much. If they stay at this venue I won't return.

    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:
