Animenyc general, how’s everyone doing
>>10289924Getting ready for sonicboombox. May as well post this here for the other parties.https://mystady.com/blog/always-date-guide-anime-nyc-2019-parties
Someone sell me one lantis matsuri ticket please! Any! Please, onegai.
Guy on the right helped me out big time. Bottom floor near the cosplay panel room. Very grateful. He asked me to do something on Instagram but I don't have an account so figured I'd give a shoutout here.I think I'll try harder to talk to people tomorrow, today was a bit lonely. Will there be another meetup on Saturday?I liked the Yukana panel, her gesticulations and manner of speaking were pretty cute. Too many audience members talking loudly while she was speaking though, pretty disrespectful.
>>10289924/cgl/ threads can linger on a page for days, baka.
>>10290009Lantis Matsuri already happened. Keep up with the flow of traffic.
>>10289968Suggestions for tomorrow? I wanna actually go to one of these things
>>10290049>MFW I saw pictures of that concertGeezus Christ, why did they perform in some shitty bingo hall?
>>10290033> I think I'll try harder to talk to people tomorrow, today was a bit lonelySame, luckily I’m going tomorrow too so Hopefully I can bring up the courage to chat up some people
>>10290072Not him, but it's just so..intimidating? Most if not everyone is in groups so it seems intrusive as fuck to just butt in when they've got all their inside jokes and stories going.And small talk on panel lines never last either
>>10290074Most of the females at the party appear to already be with someone. The enticing ones at least.
>>10290075I'm a simple man, I am a 5 that stays in his lane.
>>10290076I don't know what I am, plus this isn't exactly a linear scale. I mean enticing to *me*, which can be different from what it is to others.
>>10290074Agree anon (though I don't want to turn this into a zetsubouthread). Not even looking for girls specifically, even the guys I tried to talk to seemed reluctant to carry on a conversation. I think the best way is probably to find someone with shared interests but there are no melancholy seinen slice of life panels or exhibits. Or I guess if you're at the after party, get really drunk, then everyone's your friend.
>>10290083That sounds more like MDMA than alcohol. Plus, I don't drink, and I don't go for sauced girls.
>>10290049I just learned. brb dying.
>>10290083Yeah, I'm fairly confident in my ability to read people, most people give off a vibe they aren't interested in anything past a sentence or two.
>>10290075Fuck off incel
>>10290085I mean if you just want hookups just go on tinder. At least in my experience alcohol is the go-to here. And then after, depending on who you're with is either pot or cocaine. MDMA if you're in bushwick.>>10290092Maybe playing one of those board games or video games at the game area would be good since it lasts a while? Heh, I feel pretty autistic thinking of ways to scam people into talking to me
Hanging out at the Hilton suites in Long Island City, anyone wanna hang?
Was happy to see many Terry Bogard cosplays today. I've been cosplaying Terry for years, and I'm happy to see it, even it is for Smash. Pic related
>>10290050>>10289968I'm going to the OWA afterpartyThey have a large lineup of guest cosplayers and their main OWA girls get pretty lewd.
Already getting Death Stranding content.
Would any pretty boys at the con like to cuddle with a ~~guy~~?
>>10290124No you sicko stick to grindr
>>10290033Did Yukana get to talk about her non-C.C. roles? I'm a big fan of a few of her video game roles
>>10290127But its terrible and I tried it today and it suggedI just want fall cuddles
>>10289901Saturday was always going to work better for me unfortunately, you going to try again today?>>10290068Blame I.M. Pei, I guess?
>>10290212Sure. Some choices: Saturday, 11:30am, 1pm, 3:30pm, 6pm, 7:30pm.Please respond with the all times you can make it for. If you can't make it to any, name a different time. We can pick the one most people will be able to make it for.
>>10290081If you don't know what you are, that means you're ugly to average. Good looking guys have the experiences to know as such.
>>10290218Or I'm incredibly dense.
>>10290124Only if your a twink
My friends had work/not enough money so if you guys wanna hang I'll be sitting at the bottom most floor with a puffy jacket. By 1e15
>>10290285I'm not atm :cry:
It was shockingly easy to ghost this con yesterday...did they step security up today? I'm bored and was thinking of swinging by for pics and akward attempts at making friends..
>>10290346If you help me out with pics I'll help you talk to ppl
Anyone see the Toga cosplayer from last year?
Someone said there was a dressing area last thread. Info says there aren't any
>>10290381>>10290365>>10290364>>10290346>>10290329>>10290323>>10290312Where to meet
>>10290383Down to meet but gotta get dressed
It's cruel how amazing some of the asses of the women here are
>>10290346If you mean sneaking in then im sure you can find some point where the security guard will be distracted.
FUUUCK Im hungry
>>10290387Was at the charging station, had to leave to put on pants, dressed as lio
Thank god for that one youtuber with the smash, can’t believe both coat checks were full At least I didn’t have to pay 4 dollars
>>10290428I just checked in my luggage though, the lady didn't look happy about it I didn't know it was supposed to be full
Are they shutting it down?
Anyone going tomorrow? I went mad late today since I wasn't feeling well earlier.>>10290434The game section is still open along with some showings.
>>10290420Where are you now?
>>10290383Do homo with me
>>10290420Also wondering where you might be
If anyone still wants to meet up, I'll be in the panel room with a blue backpack
Don’t go to bda
what happens after 10? does everyone just go home?
anybody else at this cringy masqueradeI need to get drinks with somebody
Yeah I was at the masquerade. Cringy af. Left and chilling in hotel now
>>10290464I left after Miku, I hope I did not miss anything like Miku coming back. Was hoping for a certain song.
>>10290468Well, first, Miku did not come back yet so she was still being kept in a special facility. It was a situation where there were still people missing from the incident. The song was a special song made for this occasion. This was done in the first two months after the incident ended and I was going to make the song just as a memory of the event. I made the song and Air Dropped it. I felt so happy when the song started to do well. I thought it would have a good effect on people.In the same way, I wrote the song because I wanted to play it. I wanted to play it for the first time on stage. When I was in my early twenties, I wanted to make the song. I wanted people to play it. I wrote the song for the last song of the album, and made it during that time.
>probably talked to a bunch of seagulls while working at a booth>we'll never know
>>10290459I’m at Otakus with attitude
>>10290459Yeah. As a resident that goes to other cons it fucking sucks.
>>10290480my feet hurt too much from standing all day and I'm a cheapass, also I dislike people in general (but not you guys don't worry) but hope u have fun
>>10290480I feel like having a drink but I'm too much of a dweeb. Have fun.
>>10290491Thanks also Jesus Bacardi rum tastes like I’m drinking straight moonshine.ive only had jungle juice and miller lite so far and just asked for it straight
i didnt go to the con but jesus my train home was filled with sweaty weebs tonight
>>10290510Yeah it be like that
>>10290436New Yorker hotel lobby
OWA was wack. Should have bailed on my friend and gone to club love live sooner. OS is a garbage place to host parties.
>>10290480How is it? Heavily considered it, but ultimately just went home.
>>10290518Everyone either already knows each other or doesn’t socialize because they’re on the PCs at OS
>>10290518It’s fine but it could be better, I’m probably going to sonic next year
>>10290520So just like the con itself then, man, among thousands of your "people" and it's still difficult to make friends.
>>10290480Oh, so am I. I have a Miku plush, a duffel bag, and a red hat. Where are you?
>>10290480Scratch duffel bag, add red lightstick
>>10290531Inosuke with the wig
>>10290513If you're there tomorrow and still want to meet up, I'm down
>>10290564I was just chilling there with some friends after eating at ticktock. I just commute lol
>>10290518Same anon from earlier, it did get better, plenty of people to dance with. Also some e celebs were there if that interests you
>>10289924The official after party was actually dope. They actually played 90% weeb music. I wasn't a big fan of the love live stuff in the beginning but that didn't last long.
If anyone knows anyone who needs a Sunday pass for 40 hit me upDiscord Yume#6337
>>10290596Didn't go to the official afterparty but went to the OWA one.Was overall pretty nice and long beach griffy was there too. Only real downside imo was that the "bar" was basically a kitchen so you'd need to order multiple drinks in advance to avoid the line.
>>10290568Meant the con, not the lobby lol
There's no bar inside javitz?
>>10290568Hey were you the tall lio by the left side bag check, I think I got a photo of you
>>10290312>>10290435Organizing these meetups is pretty tough when you can't post on here at the center. Can probably meet at around 2 today, if anyone is planning a thing.
>>10290722For me, the internet here works on the second floor near the food truck area.If anyone wants to meet at 2, how about by the left side charging center?
So I was out as inosuke in a coat walking to my after party and this girl with someone asks me to take a picture with her. Shortly after some older woman care up to me asking to take one too at which point she started pinching my nipples and gave me 5 dollars Guess I like my nipples being pinched now
>>10290761That's rape. You were raped. Nipple raped too.
There was a Kohaku (Dr. Stone) and a Rin Kagamine that triggered my primal instincts yesterday..Did any of you weebs score any pussy?
>>10290768I thought that’s be sexual assault, regardless of which I got 5 dollars which is cool, since I was low on money
>>10290775I too wish to be sexually assaulted for five dolla. Never ever
I'm by the left charging station now
>>10290785Wish I was at the con, you have a discord?
>>10290702lol I might be there as it's ending though>>10290710Idk average height of the lio cosplayersToo tired to cosplay today but up for chilling with people for a bit. I think the discord ppl may be organizing a dinner or something
>>10290832Who are the discord people?
>>10290832You looked Asian when I took the picture if that helps
Some pretty severe cases of just be white in here
After switching to the SBB party from OWA I managed to pick someone up pretty easily and ended the night at her hotel. I’m convinced that all the 3rd party after parties suck (perez play/OWA) if you’re outside the “clique”
>>10290845Green text time
>>10290849Not much desu>head to OWA at Bowery after not going to the con on Saturday because Friday was boring as fuck>chill there for 2 hours but realize everyone else is already in a clique/group>the one girl I tried to hit up got pulled away by her friends >ended up playing Overwatch on the PCs at OS until I got bored and left >end up at Spin>party is a blast full of people noise and fun>chill around the bar for a bit waiting a meet some /a/nons >as I’m talking with them and waiting for my drink I notice a girl alone who looked kinda lonely>mustered up the courage to ask if she was alone and when I got confirmation offered to buy her a drink>spent the next 3 hours at the party just talking and getting to know each other >she books an Uber for 2 to her hotel and >...>profitI did learn from her that part of the reason she accepted my drink offer was because of my cosplay. I’m the guy with the animated UwU glasses in a full Ahegao jumpsuit.
>>10290845You know I really liked owa, actually was able to dance with a bunch of people but the venue was just too cramped, nice video game setups, if I’m ever on a trip to nyc I might consider going to os though. I’ll probably just go to senpai and sonic next year
>>10290845Also makes me wonder if any unlucky anons went to Perez play
>>10290853I think OWA would have been better it it wasn’t at OS. I said this earlier but the combination of it being a cliquey party and the ability to zone out and play vidya really fucked the mood of the party.
I went to OWA briefly but I was too tired. Place was cramped as hell and I definitely agree about the clique thing.
Anyone up to hang out as the con is ending?
>>10290860What do you want to do?
>>10290866Arcade or grab a bite to eat maybeJust chill
Yo is bag check open till later? Need to pick up shit but not near the con
>>10290858Yeah like I really do appreciate being able to play a game after the long lines at the game section of the con but it really did cut into just the amount of people who were dancing
Going yo this con made me realize that these are not people that I want to associate with on a daily basis.
>>10290852They still let ppl in the SBB Official party aftermidnight?
>>10290852So you piped? What'd she look like?
Is this organized dinner still happening? Or does anyone want to hang out in general?
>>10290895I had tickets already, I just showed up late. >>10290900She was cute, tomboyish and was my type.
What was up with the north korean cosplayers?
>>10290913What races are y'all? Just curious, cause I always see tons of mixed couples at these things.
>>10290927I’m black she was white.
>>10290929>New IPOk kid
>>10290933I’m posting from mobile because I’m still out bro
>>10290934Gotcha, I wanna try that next year, or in general since it was at a bar really. My social skills decent I guess, but I've never hit on anyone at a bar before.
Too many fat fucks in the way this year
>>10290102Haha I actually saw the dude on the far right, pretty cool
Holy shit I think I heard more mandarin than English today in the javits
Should I visit the afterparty
>>10291022is there afterparties on sunday?
>>10291024According to Google events there isBut un sleepy as fuck and trying to stall time (twas supposed to be working until 10:30)
I'm just visiting fron California but this is a nice change of pace from cons like AX. Maybe I just love white and black people too much lmao
>>10291019No, but there was a surprising amount of Chinese people.
>>10290929So you gave her the BBC? Kimochīi?
>>10291086whats it like over there in california and ax
I really should have gotten that Etrian Odyssey IV Super Arrange CD. Oh well.
Didn't really feel like I enjoyed this year too much.Was torn between two groups of friends that made it difficult to hang out with either group, and like 50% of the time was spent looking for one of the groups. Had my Camera with me but I didn't really ask for photos too much due to my retard social skills and being introverted.Met up with someone briefly from /cgl/ that didnt seem all that thrilled to see me.And missed 99% of the panels, with the last Pokemon panel being a borefest.The most fun I had was at the OWA party and even then I left early due to no friends and retard social skills.
>>10290891I've realized this after the first time I went to Otakon 4 years ago. These shonen-obsessed assholes with their short attention spans aren't fun or interesting. I have a better time on /a/ interacting with others. I just go to cons for premiers and announcements, Japanese arcade games, original artwork, Japanese anime industry people, loli porn, and cheap anime garbage. Basically everything except socializing.
>>10290983This was my first time too. I’ve only had 1 other serious gf and the girl I met at the party was the first I’ve ever made out with. You just need to be aware of your surroundings and have a little liquid courage.
>>10291143I'm decently confident in my ability to read people, I can tell if someone's into me, sometimes I just get blinded by desire and try to force what's not there.I dunno how to do any of this shit though, the socializing to get to a girls hotel room, that's not the hard part, I can do that, it's everything after, that's some un-fucking-marked territory.
>>10291143>>10291145>the socializing to get to a girls hotel roomAny tips on how to achieve this?
>>10291145It was uncharted for me as well. Honestly just keep doing what you did to be invited in the first place and see where the mood takes you. >>10291160Unironically being yourself helps. What most people fail mention is that just means talking about your likes tastes and whatever else comes to mind. When that fails girls don’t mind just having you listen to them.
>>10291161Funny how people are acting so insulted by this considering the state of these threads.
It's a shame those crew shirts were never for sale after the event, they were legit.
>edible kicked in during the Fate VR shit>can't push Saber on a swing>realize people can see me trying to headpat herWhat a fucking nightmare.
West Coast Love Liver here, how was the Lantis Matsuir concert for those that went? I felt like I should have went because GK is my fav sub-unit, but I wasn't too sure if I wanted to drop $1k for a handful of songs. Did they perform New Romantic Sailor?
>>10291107Not that anon, but AX has fallen off the last 5-7 years in terms of quality due to overcrowding and the industry presence slowly degrading of inudstry. Luckily CRX will replace AX in the near future as the "industry" con of California.
>>10291293>doing weed while at the conventionIt’s like you were asking to have a panic attack. >>10291304
So, let me get this straight, who's doing the complaining here? Women screech about sexualization, but jump to the ONLY Pillar that has her tits spilling out? Make lewd versions of male characters? But a single layer of fabric away from being nude? What's going on here?
>>10291318Have you seen the amount of people bitching about the ahegao hoodies? https://twitter.com/skinnybaras/status/1196151673800003586?s=21
>>10291304It was amazing and yes they did. Crowd went wild.
>>10291320Where else can you wear Ahegao shit outside of cons? You'll get mean looks everywhere.
>>10291360No where bro but think of the children never mind that anime is generally 13+ and ahegao prints are more tasteful than some of the girls I’ve seen with their tits literally hanging out. There was this one Inosuke who was cute but she was one misstep away from her tits flying out of the toilet paper binding she made.
>>10291318what happened? did a mitsuri get harassed?
>>10290596All they did over there was wave flashlights. No actual dancing. It was like some Japanese concert. I left for OWA and that was lit.
>>10291375I bet you spent all your time on the PCs there.
>>10291304> new romantic sailorYep! That was super fun to watchOverall it was a good concert, lots of excitement after GK went on, lots of collabs between the artists. One thing to note is that similar to AX, a lot of people were there jsut for love live, so energy kind of sucked in the beginning (I know that's just how a lot of idol fans are, but it's still rude). Biggest con is probably that the room was not suited for a concert, so they should probably move to a bigger one with better sound
>>10291360>>10291364I saw some slim vietnamese kid come into my work wearing one while trying to buy a fucking iPhone. Disgusting.
>>10291304there's a rip of the concert on nyaa
>>10291364I saw that girl, there was also this Love Pillar (forgot her name) with huge tits that were a breath away from being completely exposed.
>last panel I went to on sunday was a pokemon one for nostalgia>majority of people given a microphone to ask a question seemed to have some degree of mental illnessone guy straight up sounded like a looney toons character no one understood what he was saying
>>10290852Was she dressed up as Botan?
>>10291432That's conventions for ya.
I had a blast at the con as always! 3rd year in a row but this was by FAR my busiest con! Almost as busy as NYCC since I was working with a lot of companies and hooking people up. I hope you all had a great time though. I was Rob Lucci. One of my biggest highlights was Jam Project flipping out when I approached them as Rob Lucci and we all did the Rokougan together lol. But I’m so glad everyone was so friendly and I’ll gladly come back again.
>>10290102I loved this man. I made sure to do the buster wolf with the voice intact! Lots of them were my friends so it was nice to see my main fighting game character get all this love.
>>10291492Thank god she's still pureAlso is anyone hitting PowCon? Or is that lame and we should just wait until another big con shows up.
>>10291503Aye it was nice seeing you again! I was the vegeta on friday
I think there was someone who said he was going as Shin in one of these threads. Your costume was badass (especially the mask holy shit). I think you should have roughed up the suit a bit to make the cosplay perfect.Awful quality picture I know, but by far my favorite from the Con. If you remember the weird guy in the Miku shirt who asked you to beat him to death with the hammer, that was me.
>>10291558Of course it uploads sideways
>>10291503I ran into you and saw what you did for those kids on Saturday. You really had a lot of energy and you were swamped by people and cameras, yet you took the time to talk to me and got those kids all those prizes. I wish I got a pic of you. I was too nervous to ask, but thank you for helping me get into the Lantis panel
>>10291503I saw the jam project thing you mentioned. It was wild that they were so into you. The translator even told one of the cranky staff members to back off and let them have fun. I was the little mac that gave you the punch if you don’t remember me.
>>10291546My man!!! I remember you too bro. Do you still got the pic of us? And what was your favorite thing about the con?>>10291581Thank you so much and I had to since the kids really wanted to get those prizes but they had to do the hunt for it. I didn’t mind doing it at all, it was fun! And never be nervous to ask for anything. I don’t mind it at all. And you’re welcome!>>10291584What made that more hilarious was that I know most of the staff and even THEY were annoyed at that guy. But it’s all good. I loved how Jam Project drew on my chest for funsies and people were asking why was my stuff drawn on me lol. And dude do you have the pic? I loved that we just ran into each other and squared up like that lol. Side note, this King was awesome!
>>10291587Were you the chode on the left? I remember that annoying asshole. Wouldn't shut the hell up and thought he was hot shit for no reason. What was that douchebag even supposed to be cosplaying as?
>>10291593I was! I just have a lot of energy and didn’t sleep for 3 days due to not wanting to ruin the bodypaint lol. I had a lot of fun seeing old and new people alike, so I’m always energetic. I was Rob Lucci from One Piece, his Leopard Form. There was funny enough, another Rob Lucci in his normal form with Hattori. Next year I’m bringing the whole CP9 or I’ll do CP0 version of Rob Lucci.
>>10291597I thought you were a cool dude, loved what you did with the body paint.
>>10291597I thought you were a thundercat.I was joking by the way. Conventions could use more fun people like you that aren't offensively abrasive.
>>10291587Oh shit I remember you telling my group to have a nice night as you were leaving the diner on Sat night lmao.
Anyone have any pics of that Negev cosplayer? Friend told me ANYC had a ton of GFL peeps.
>>10291787This but show me that S U P E R S H O R T Y
I'm actually severely jealous of the dudes that can bring their gf's to this thing and have a blast. I wish I could have that.
>>10291787>>10291798Fucking hell. I can only go to the cons in the south east and never ever see any GFL cosplays. I see like maybe one commander or T-Doll ever per con. Please post pictures if you have any.
>>10291558Thanks man, I'm very glad you liked my cosplay!, it was my first time cosplaying, so I'll take your advice for the next time. Also of course I remember you, you're one of the few who asked for something unique.
so no pic dump?
>>10291587Yeah I do! did a bit of work on it too. My favorite would be just the amount of great cosplays out there in the con, like there so many interesting takes out there. https://imgur.com/a/6BaqfH0
>>10291836Oh I got some actually. Here are my friends as the 2 Hunks from Resident Evil that I see everyone posting about.
>>10291603 Thanks man. It took a good while to do but it was worth it. And lasted pretty well I want to improve on it next year so I’m more than happy to take any advice on this. >>10291610 Thank you so much. And it’s crazy that I got compared to cheetara, and King from Tekken and then i run into 2 cosplayers who were doing that lol. I ran with it though. I never want to spoil someone else’s fun. >>10291680 I remember you and your group. You all seriously nailed your cosplays and I really do hope you all got your well earned rest. Were there any highlights for you this year?>>10291844 Mannnnn the fact that Kizaru and Aokiji came through was so good!!! I had to do their Japanese voices lol. Thanks for this bro. And one of my favorite shots of the con I just received
How was the Rie Kugimiya panel? I missed it, what happened?
>>10291836Tired as shit but can get around editing later in the weekIn the meantime have this car.
>>10291869I saw the dude to the left while walking back into the exhibit hall but I didnt feel like taking a photo at the time.Kinda regret it now :(
>>10291390Stop projecting. I don't go to a party to play computer games.RDCWorld1 was there too btw.
>>10291949How many youtubers were at OWA? So far I count 2.
>>10291949I dunno anon anyone who says that SBB was just a bunch of people waving glowsticks is already someone not to be trusted. I was also at both and outside of maybe 5 people in front of the DJ booth there was no one dancing. Everyone else was either chatting or playing on consoles/computers.
>>10291983>was just a bunch of people waving glowsticksMade me think of like 20 something people violently flailing glowsticks with no synchronization
>>10291983I went to the official afterparty and stayed for about an hour. Thery did the Hatsune Miku waving flashlights thing and it was lame.I get it though. It's an anime convention so they wanted to make it like your japanese animes but as an adult i found it kind of childish. The DJ telling people to change lights and for the most part, the main crowd was just waving flash lights. The DJ would be like, "Everybody change it to green! Change it to green!"I just wasn't down with that and it was weird. I didn't feel like I was at a 21+ event with that going on. SBB has thrown great parties in the past, and even in that venue. But I feel like they were forced to do that to make it better fit with the convention theme.I arrived to OWA shortly after midnight.I don't want this to come off as too negative because I like both of these promotions and they throw great parties. I think next year I'm just going to go with OWA because that was way more wild and fun. And adult.Games were there but they're usually there at these NYC anime parties but I don't really play them longer than maybe 15 minutes. It's not what I'm there for.
>>10292018I did sort of the opposite. I stayed at OWA til 11 and headed to SBB afterwards. I already said most of the stuff here but SBB felt more like a club than OWA by far. And when I was at OS a good chunk of people weren't even dancing they were either sitting around chatting or playing vidya.Also it seems kinda weird to me that you'd go to an anime convention afterparty yet find the anime part of it weird especially since you're on /cgl/.
>>10292028>Also it seems kinda weird to me that you'd go to an anime convention afterparty yet find the anime part of it weird especially since you're on /cgl/.No, I've been to SBB and OWA plenty of times in the past, I'm local. We do our anime thing there. We sing Naruto OPs and mark out. We cosplay. But it's also an adult vibe. For the time I was at SBB it felt younger. But given that we were both the early at the parties we didn't like so much maybe they didn't cook until later?Like I said, both promotions are great and I'm glad we have them in NEw York. The ire was getting a little stale. My only refuge were the goth parties and those seem to be dying out. I think the goths all migrated to Jersey bc I see a lot more happening there.
I could use some advice for next years con:Are we able to just ghost our way in? Cuz security this year only checked like every other guys badge which is odd
>The ire That's an amazing typo. I meant to say the nightlife. Their used to be crazier nightlife events like TRASH! and NC-17. The promotor and DJ of those events sadly passed away. The scene's never been the same. There's also the warehouse raves in Brooklyn but I haven't gone to one recently. And as I mentioned the goth/fetish parties are my usual hangs.But this anime shit that's jumping off? I like that we have that.
>>10292063Just buy a fucking ticket. I mean, you can definitly try that but who knows if they'll be as lax next year. There's also tickets being sold by the train. And I think they still had them online. Tickets was to see vendors, you could literally just chill outside the vendor area tho
>>10292068ThisIf you're just there to see cosplays and photoshoots, no ticket was needed.
>go to after-party on Friday>get way too drunk at the pregame, and a guy was buying everyone up shots at the actual after-party>quickly realize I can't really chat up girls since I'm a mess>end up buying an 80 dollar Uber back home instead of taking the train which I don't remember doing>wake up Saturday with a banged up knee and no idea how I got back home>Basically hobble around all Saturday, can't do the poses I wanted to since I doubted I could hold anyoneWhy am I like this
>>10292214HA HA BRO IT'S NOT HARD TO GET LAID AT A CON. JUST PUT ON A SKIRT AND DRESS UP LIKE A GIRL IT'S NOT HARD HA HA
>>10292298Sauce?All the “traps” at animenyc were fucking hairy and roided
>>10291836My friends came as Chairman Rose & Oleana. I’ll try to find pics of other cosplayers that I took without me in them, but I like how this one came out. My other friend came as charizard. Let me get a pic of that
>>10292214"carry"? What was your cosplay?
>>10292533I think I know who you are. You go dressed as the same character every year, right?
>>10292327Yeah bro it's almost like your gay fantasy involves men in skirts
>>10292578Not that guy but that's a new character from the Pokemon game
Anyone have more pics of that Mordred cosplay it was badass. I also took pics of that Misaka Mikoto cosplayer, she was cute but she seemed off. The amount of my hero academia is getting a little ridiculous its this gens Naruto.
>>10292706How'd she seem off?
>>10292706I feel like the BHA stuff was balanced by all the Demon Slayer stuff this year
>>10292578I do actually. I go as Rob Lucci. I’m usually the one who brings the cosplayers to the big companies to get featured on their websites and vids. 1st AnimeNYC I went as Law.
>>10292706Nah, there were more Zenitsu's than anything this year. >>10292775 This.The thing is, the UA uniform is "free" effortless cosplay, that's why so many do it.
>>10292900Had a friend complaining about effortless cosplay like this. But imo it's not like it's out of place either.>>10292893Saw you this year but I didn't know if you were the same guy from /cgl/. Nice to know though, will be on the lookout next year.
>>10291875Rie was adorable. Typical q&a stuff, but she did do a live dub of Toradora and a few voices of charater prompts (don't know what else to call it)
>>10293443Thank you for the recap anon! I really hope she comes back one day so I can see her.
>>10293435It's not out of place, but it's the definition of no effort. Type UA Uniform into amazon. Done.
>>10293686I do have one of this Amazon UA uniforms, which I've mostly used for parties.I don't think that the goal of wearing it is to go for effort as much as it is to just embrace the fandom. I would not expect anyone in a UA uniform with a basic wig to start posing for photos on the floor.But I guess cosplay is subjective to some extent.
>>10291558Holy shit a motherfucking Dorohedoro cosplay
Anyone want to photo dump some pictures they took, I want to see the cosplays I missed.
>>10293806Sure. Coming right up.
Last one for now. I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted to. Can someone dump some photos from the 2hu photoshoot? I missed it.
>>10293827Thats some of the hungriest madokas ive seen
>>10293854>>10293856>>10293851>>10293850What camera did you use for these shots?
I loved the squishables boothToo bad the unwashed weeblards masses tainted the plushie pool within minutes of the con opening
>>10293908Oh come on, I showered right before the con.
>>10293908>>10293909they were so adorable. i snatched up the Cerberus one.
>>10293934Cerberus plushie was pretty adorable
>>10293907Just my Huawei P20 Pro. Did not bring my camera, unfortunately.
>>10293955That's some pretty nice DoF effects on your photo. I brought my camera and my shits didn't even come out all that great. Ended up having to try and salvage nearly every photo.
So what was the Fate Grand Order event all about? I only cared about seeing Aoi Yuuki but she was at the Madoka premier (which was amazing) so I didn't bother with the Fateshit.
>>10293982About FGO, duh.If you don’t play the game or know the characters, there’s no point. It was just VA talking about their favorite characters
>>10293982U missed out because Aoi went hard fujoshi at the fgo panel. But if you don’t know the characters, it would probably not been as funny
How cringe would it be to drive down the Vegas strip in one of these?
>>10294004> Aoi went hard fujoshiGod my friend went and he's one of those 100% straight "no homo" dudes, so he came back super embarrassed about her since she voices a lot of his favorite characters. After hearing what she said, I'm kind of sad I missed it if only to see the reactions
>>10294376wouldnt be any different from the rest of vegas
Honestly wish I had a Fate costume for this con. Love the series but I doubt I'll see such a large presence anytime soon compared to this.
>>10294478me on the right
>>10294478The fgo tour was the reason why I made an outfit, it was nice. There will always be a presence, just have to look for gathering and photoshoots
>>10293435Thanks bro. Side note, just got off the phone with the owner of AnimeNYC. We want to know which ideas or anything he can do to improve the convention. I did this last year and he took a lot of the ideas from last years thread and implemented them into this year, so shoot any ideas and I’ll forward it to him ASAP.
>>10291836Saw an awesome Edgeworth & Phoenix Wright cosplay
>>10295093-Separate artist alley again-More attendee interaction events like a speed dating thing or something-More giveaways/raffles-Security that actually does their job-Staff needs to tell people when a panel is maxed out so we can stop having extremely long lines with 80% of it not standing a chance
>>10295093Please seperate artist ally. Felt like I paid for a badge just to wander around one room the entire weekend Also maybe seperate cosplay meetup spots, that area gets crowded enough without 3 groups jockying for space
>>10295093-Better/normal afterparty. Didn't sign up this year due to not being familiar with Club Love Live -24/7 Arcade corner-24/7 Anime Streaming-More interactive panels, I know of other cons that have things like speed dating and dance lessons-No ball/plush pits, its already unhygenic enough plus mixing in a bunch of unwashed lardweebs is a recipe for a superbug.-Better placement of booth tags at booths, I felt like some booths weren't displaying their tags properly, which would lead to a ton of frustration when trying to look for friends.
>>1029548724/7 isn't going to happen, it's logistically impossible to rent out the entire Javits for 24h a day and secure it
>>10295093-18+ panels -fan made panels would be nice, i feel like it would lighten the load to the main con panels lines -if tokyo pop is able to, have more cabinets at least 2 of each game. if not then its understandable -smash bros and some other games not covered by tokyo pop-seconding the interactive panels-more coat checks areas/space? im not entirely sure how they would do this but it would be nice since on saturday both coat checks got filled.-bigger meetup areas for larger communities, for the demon slayer meetup with the amount of space there was along with the amount of people there as well as other meetups and shoots going on, i feel like it would be good to accomodate accordingly for fandoms that might need it-larger after party venue, might be a small thing but i feel like there was a lot more people who wanted to go to the official after party but couldn't just because of how many tickets there were available
>>10295093I mostly went for the Japanese guests, and I do have to say this year went a lot better than last year for sure.- All Japanese autographs are done by lottery; none of this random Vofan/Kugirie/Yukana business where it's tied into a booth or online purchase- Weighted lottery entries: if there's 10 guests each person entering the lottery has 10 points to allocate. If you're really into 1 guest you can throw all 10 points into them, which eliminates you entirely from the running for the other guests but gives you the maximum chance to get an autograph ticket for said guest-Better line management - staff should have an idea how much room is in the Special Events or any smaller panel room and cut people off earlier, as well as better organizing the hordes of people who want to get into highly anticipated events like Tenki no Ko early
>>10295093Please separate artist alley, that's all I want!
>>10295175>>10295465>>10295487>>10295570>>10295580>>10295583Yeah separating artist alley again is a great idea. It should be back to where it was last year. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. As far as speed dating is concerned, I’m afraid that won’t be happening at all. There’s too many risks involved that the owner and company do not want to get into if a situation happens. I mentioned this last year as well. More arcades can definitely be done as well as bringing in more game companies too. More coat checks could be done but realistically only about 1-2 more at best. Bigger meet ups are a plus. Any other suggestions people? I have a conference call with the company on Friday.
>>10295580>as well as better organizing the hordes of people who want to get into highly anticipated events like Tenki no Ko earlyThe crowd management for Lantis Matsuri was ridiculous, Javits staff kept giving different instructions to the VIP section and ultimately ended up just opening the doors and letting everyone shove their way in.>>10295631Might be outside the scope of the conversation at this point but I'd like to see the concerts either moved back to an outside venue or the line-up procedures clearly outlined before the day of the show. That was actually the only communications let down I had this year, no Crew or Javits people I talked to knew how it was going to work and it was never posted online other than 'Starting at 5:30'. Assigned seating wouldn't hurt either, takes the edge off lining up entirely.
>>10295631>into if a situation happensLike what? What could happen that couldn't happen on the floor?
>>10295667Quiet you rapist
>>10295672What does that even mean? I'm asking you an actual question. Are they afraid of asshurt dudes causing a scene? That can happen on the floor too, at least in a contained environment they can be dealt with WAY easier.
>>10295631No, the artists and management already pointed out that the space upstairs was maxed out last year, and this year is even bigger. So likely not happening.
>>10295702It needs to happen or they need to find an alternative exclusive artist space because this years was too overwhelming
>>10295631> Speed datingYeah, big no. ANYC has way too many students for that. Only other suggestion would be better rooms for some of the panels/events. Events like the concert should have been held in a room with an actual stage
>>10295631>>10295715Honestly only way I can see speed dating working if it was an 18+ thing if they even considered it One thing more I’d like to see is just a panel or area were you could just talk with other people, because I know a lot of people might be a little bit shy so that could be a good push in the right direction
>>10295093Lottery system is fine but maybe do the JapanExpo style lottery and also gave second chance for dropout
>>10295780>because I know a lot of people might be a little bit shy so that could be a good push in the right directionThat would help tons, I went with a friend and while on a line for a panel, this girl just started chatting us up, we all got along fairly well, just talked and joked for a good hour or so, I could tell she was excited to have someone to talk to, cause she would keep resparking the convo even if I didn't have much to say.If she weren't with her parents I imagine she would've wanted to tag along for the rest of the day.
>>10295820>If she weren't with her parents
>>10295857Wasn't a loli, goober. She was an adult, just seemed extremely sheltered based on how excited she was to interact with people.
>>10295711On the other hand, the artists benefit from being placed in the same stream as the commercial vendors.Part of the problem is that the Javits Center is undersized. Despite NYC being the largest city in the country, the Javits is only the 12th largest convention center. The only other places the artist alley could be placed are 3A or one of the first floor exhibition halls, and at the rate the con is growing, 3A will he needed for the commercial exhibitors next year.See https://nypost.com/2016/01/07/the-javits-center-is-about-to-get-a-whole-lot-bigger/ about the expansion project.
>>10295931true like i can see where your coming from with the artists benefiting .they are building a new section from what i saw outside so maybe thats something
>>10295931Also some retard thought that it was a good idea to close off the 4th floor making the main one overcrowded and hard to get thru. Idk about 2018 but in 17, the 4th was open and it was a lot easier to get around
>>10295693There's a pretty big difference in 'could happen on the floor' and creating a situation where a bunch of dudes are going to feel entitled to act like creeps due to the format if these two threads are anything to go by.
>>10295999The fourth floor was closed off because the convention didn't pay for it, going with adding halls 3D and 3B instead. In 2018 the artist alley was filled to bursting
>>10295631I made like 30 minute critical review of the convention and my experience as an artist alley attendee if you want me to link that when I finish editing the video. I tried to covered everything from start to finish of the convention.
>>10296075Speed dating is never gonna happen. IIRC, last time a con tried it, it blew up into some sort of scandal, so no.
>>10296351what happened there?
>>10296465Never mind, I think I confused an incident at Pensacon, which was a manager-employee thing, not related to speed dating. NYCC does it, so maybe it's possible?
>>10296480Well I can’t entirely imagine why speed dating would cause controversy, well I can if it ended up not being 18+ but moreover that I’ve never really been to one, only really a cosplay dating game which was at a smaller con
>>10296326I'd like to see that
honestly i cant wait till next year to freak out anyone who lives here on the subway
>>10297675Dude, nothing scares New Yorkers.
>>10297675>freak out anyone who lives here on the subwayUnless you take the trains hostage at gun point you won't even get a stare.
>>10298861honestly if you had the right cosplay you might be able to get somethingwent out as inosuke and i was running to one of the afterparties, a few people asked what i was, if it was a protest and i had one guy on a bus howl at me and one woman telling her bf that i was going to kill them jokingly as i was running.
>>10299407> InosukeBased, should have pig assaulted the couple.
i want to find the people who took my picture and tell them to cover my facethen again i cant find them so i guess nobody posted it online but still
>>10299940>I’m photoshy>better dress up, attract attention and cry that my face has been taken in a photoretard tranny gtfo
2020 tickets go on sale Monday!
>>10295631PLEASE have a real karaoke room, I'd love something like that and if possible it really should stay open until at least 12, every other con I go to stays open until 1-3 in the morning and I usually stay as long as I possibly can.
>>10306292Considering the hours of the center, that would probably require it be done in another venue though.
>>10299952Dont know how common it is for a cosplayer to be photoshy, but I took a photo of someone who didn't want to share their Instagram account for any tagging.
>>10311207It's not just a photoshy thing, they probably didn't want to give you any contact info
>>10311207Was it a cosplayer working at a booth? They're sometimes not allowed to self-promote.
>>10311378Not really, just someone walking around>>10311250Perhaps, but then why accept having a photo taken of you?
>>10312111Are you retarded? Compare one forgettable photo to someone that will potentially message and nag the shit out of you
>>10312274Ahh yea, I forgot the type of creepy autistic stalkers that lurk in these anime communities.
