Going to scope out the scene on July 4/day 0
Got shit to do Thursday.
Going on Friday.
Saturday is when the autismo's most likely to do an Elliot Roger so I don't know if it's worth it.

>>9922649
Hard to gauge the best times, but 2-3am is generally the safest. Last time I camped was 2016 at 4am and I was about 10 tickets from guaranteed cutoff, and they weren't the hot guest of the day. Since AX has grown since then I'm doing 2am this year to make sure.

Nice Anon, who are you cosplaying?

>> No.9922710

>>9922693
all of the above
note that it's going to be hot out and the cosplay gatherings are all outside. if you want shoots some will be inside, some will be outside, depending on what kind of scenery you want. you can arrange for shoots with photographers some who charge and some who are free with varying skill levels. generally the paid ones are better than the free ones but there are some free photogs who are good. since there's a lot of designated gatherings there probably won't be that many random gatherings.

if you want people to take photos of you in general bring fotm. being hot helps too (let's be honest, cosplay photos are very shallow).

Depends on the popularity of the series you're cosplaying but average you can expect one god-tier cosplay, five genderbends of a male character with long hair and/or slutty outfit, one or two people with a cheap ebay costume who didn't bother with a wig, one person who looks like a walmart aisle glitter-glued together who also unfortunately thinks they are the best thing the con has ever seen, and at least two girls dressed as boys kissing when the pairings are called up and all the fujos lose their shit. It's fun when you go with a friend or find someone you instantly click with but otherwise it's equal parts entertaining and cringe.

Couple questions for a first timer
1) How early do you think I should line up for the MHA movie premiere? Seems like its popular according to the app. How bigs the room?

2) what is this fakku dance I've been told I have to check out? Since fakku is a hentai site and all...

>> No.9922809

>>9922802
1) supposedly the capacity of it in theater setting is 5000 people. i don't actually know if they have that capacity when AX uses it. you're probably waiting the runtime of the movie or longer if you want to guarantee a seat. who knows, you might get lucky and it never fills up to capacity

2) dance/club anisong music. watch one of the recorded club mogra streams and it's going to be that.

So thanks to CWF I will be going to AX all 4 days after all. I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous though. Will is still in the hospital, but his condition is getting better. He's able to open his eyes, but he still doesn't seem fully aware. He only just woke up though, so his body is still fully coming to. This is going to be my first con in years without him, and I just don't know. I feel so lost and lonely and the guilt is still there. I'm sorry I haven't been active, this has been haunting me, but I'm still hoping for the best. Hope I see you all there, sorry if I seem a bit down.

Thank you, he luckily has no neck or spine injuries and he's breathing independently for most of the day. The doctors say he is going to need physical rehab and will need anti-seizure medication, but otherwise he should be fine. Lots of good minor progress like following movement in the room, actively watching videos, he looked like he recognized me because he really kept fighting to keep his eyes open when I was in the room talking to him. Sorry for blogposting but I just want to get the word out since I know he touched a lot of people particularly in the Ace Attorney/JoJo groups.

You have to go to meetings ranging 1-3 hours, maybe more, and fittings another 2 hours at least, not to mention the day of the fashion show is at least 8 hours of prep

Just tell them upfront you have prior plans with everything already bought and paid for. A company won't think any less or not hire you because you have a life outside of work or a vacation planned.

Different anon, but it's definitely not a risk. It's extremely unprofessional not to communicate effectively with your employer. Prior commitments are not negative aspects about you. And you don't have to be specific about the details either. This is exactly why they ask about your plans in the next 6 months. Clarify that it's a one time occurrence and frame it as proof of your skill to arrange plans months in advance. Always turn something into a positive or redirect to one of your skills.

You will be able to pick up your Anime Expo lanyard, swag bag, and program guide when you arrive on site as these items will not be shipped in advance. These items can be picked up on Figueroa St. by the South Hall Lobby entrance as early as July 3rd or 4th!

As long as you've got a legit badge it shouldn't matter. Plenty of people use their own lanyards at AX, often ones that aren't official con lanyards at all. (I often use a Good Smile Racing one that a friend gave me years ago, for example.)

>> No.9924649

the lanyard isn't necessary at all. you could have your badge in your pocket if you really felt like it and only use it to tap in/tap out and show it when requested. this means you can fit it into your schedule or if you don't care skip picking it up completely.

>>9927215
If you're wearing body paint, seal it. Practice your poses for pictures. Don't try to walk through the dealer's hall if your cosplay is gigantic and boxy. Pay attention to where you are going, especially if you have a heavy or obstructive prop. If someone asks to take your picture in a walk way, move parallel to the wall instead of perpendicular as to not block the flow of traffic. Bathe regularly and wash your costume if you're going to be wearing it for more than one day. (Optional, but recommended: wear makeup. There will be a lot of photos and a light foundation will do wonders to make your costume come together. Even if you're a male).

you definitely qualify for creative industry
note: you should qualify for SDCC creative pro too. free ticket + if you're fast a free ticket for a friend + option to buy another ticket for another friend. send in your proof of industry when they open it up later this year.

nowadays I'd say the easiest thing to do on your own is the concerts if you're interested in any of them. when I first started going about ten years ago it was a lot easier for someone to do everything so things like panels and premieres was easier to solo. nowadays there's a lot of lining up which sucks and is much harder to do on your own.

there's an industry lounge upstairs where you can network with other people or just take a load off.
