sadly... with me living and so cal AND not haveing a drivers licence... i couldnt get there... BUT... you people could, so, what did everyone think of it?

#2 Jujubeans on 13 years ago

I thought it was a nice little con. The only downside to all of it was the one sided judges at Iron Cosplay. Other than that, it was cool to go. : ) Flex!!

If I hadnt had that 12th shot of whiskey Friday night, I would have enjoyed it a lot more.

By far the worst convention I've ever been to, but it was also the best convention ever ~_~

Bad things:
Me and my friend spent near 100 hours on a Greyhound bus to get there and back
Greyhound lost our luggage so all we had was our games and what we were wearing
My friend fainted in the middle of the first PLC concert which we paid to get VIP for
Our camera that we borrowed was lost Sunday night
My costume can't ever be worn again
My signed Yura-sama drumstick was stolen from our hotel room
People got pissed at us because we got free VIP for the PLC concert

Good things:
Because of the fainting thing, we got free VIP (front and center) to the second PLC concert
Greyhound foiund our luggage early Friday morning
We ran into PLC a zillion times
Seek actually initiated a conversation with us on the street
I got Seek's body paint all over my costume
I caught one of Seek's and one of Aya's guitar picks
According to Yura-sama, the bananas I gave to the band for the pictures are "yummy"
Our camera was returned to us not too long after we got home

So yeah.. A lot of things happened that were just awful, but then something really awesome happened. It was insane x_X

It was a good con, It could of gone a little better but so far it was an ok con, I have my FFX and FFX-2 games autographed by Tara Strong, the down side for me was the dance, the dance really sucked.

#6 OniCourseMusha on 13 years ago

omg!!

Good:
Got abused by people who's into DDR cuz I was a DDR Pad.
Dealers room
PLC is cool!
Autographs
Glomp
ELEVATOR!!

Bad:
Dance was a joke! Y did I bother breakdancing on the first day of the con.
No Gaming room?? If it weren't for my laptop, I would of been bored!

#7 Shinsengumi on 13 years ago

yeah I forgot no game room, what's up with that?

#8 Jujubeans on 13 years ago

:P Have no fear. The majority of Team Flex will be in the Game Room for Fanime if you plen to go. I'll more than likely post a thread on the Fanime page concerning our activites while we're there.

#9 Firestar on 13 years ago

aww, i wanna go to fanime. i just dunno how far san jose is. if anyone can give me maybe an estimated time from santa clarita (or if thats to hard, from los angelas) to the con would be helpful. i'd do a mapquest but i dunno the address of the con. kthx <3

#10 Jujubeans on 13 years ago

That's a long walk from there to here.

[url=http://maps.yahoo.com/dd_result?newaddr=&taddr=&csz=Santa+Clarita,+CA&country=us&tcsz=san+jose&tcountry=us]Directions![/url]

I hope that helps. The San Jose point on the map is dangerously close to con since it ends smack in the middle of downtown. :D

#11 Firestar on 13 years ago

haha. well i sure as hell wouldnt be walking.
but awwe... its to far.
the only con my parents'll drive that far for is comic-con.
and i'd go with friends, but no one from scv likes anime. the only people that do live to far off to pick me up. oh well. ive got ax and comic-con coming up. <3

#12 Ayumi on 13 years ago

heh, Im a bit late, but hey, mamories stick :P

Good:
--Got to debut my Ayane
--Talked to a really cool Ouka
--Met people I had never met before
--PLC was awesome, I had glowsticks and jumped... alot. >.>
--Alot of people remembered me! :D
--My sis cosplayed with me!


Bad:
--I agree with the new gaming room, actually when I found that out, I yelled "There will be a gaming compeition in room ###" considering we had our Xbox, with Halo 2, Dead Or Alive, and our friends had a moddied Game Cube.
--uhhh...
--I dont like Happy tree Friends... :( they scare me. Happy bunny owns them all!! >_<
--Kind of disappointed in the Host for Masq. I had seen him before at a previous con, but he seemed very different at AOD. (dont kill me lol )
--Alot of my friends bailed out on me for this con.

Like juju said, it was a nice lil con, but I am looking forward to FanimeCon mucho more :P

:P I'll plug the Game Room then. Muah. Stop on by. We'll be playing an Inuyasha TCG and a Sailormoon TCG. Ooh, I better shut my mouth and save the rest for the Fanime section! :untrust:

Lol, yea ::ninja:: undercover ninja Fanime talk >.>
Glad to hear!

Its not like AOD didnt plan to have a game room, they had told me they didnt have enough console support for a game room, which kinda disappointed me, because I could be almost positive that people would volunteer for that kind of stuff itf it was known. But then again they may have already done that =/

Oh well, room 409 had a killer mini Dead Or Alive Tournament. And yes, I did kick some major butt.
