It's getting closer and closer to the time when ANYC is finally upon us.Anybody have any plans? Expectations? Hopes? Any particular cosplays you're planning or making, or any nearby after parties you wanna go to? Any artist ally folk? All discussion is welcome.
I thought New York was closed until 20XX.Why would anyone want to go to NYC for a con with all of the lockdown rules that they have there.
>>10684555Literally no lockdown rules retard. Stay in your backwards redneck state.
>niggers talking about bringing fake vacc cards
>>10684648The literal FBI cracked down on a guy who was selling them in my city. People can try but they'll probably get fucked.
>>10684653>selling themYou'd have to be an absolute retard not to make one for yourself.
>>10684653I think there's a bit of a difference between selling them, and just making a fake on Photoshop and showing ANYC staffers the fake on your phone anon.
>>10684648They are doing the lord's work
Any parties going on? Surely there has to be.
>>10684648>>10684653Bold of you guys to assume a ANYC staffer getting paid minimum wage truly gives a shit about if the card is real or fake.
NYCC was fucking trash, I doubt this is going to be any better.
>>10685612What was wrong with NYCC?My only real problem was the greasy ass scalper vendors, but other than that I had fun.
>>10684460Excited to go because it's generally been pretty good, better than ABoston for sure. idgaf about the lockdown rules and i'm making masks to go with my cosplays since I don't think it'll lift by contime. Signed up for the masq but I'm still working on my cos, so unsure if I'll get accepted. Will probably go to the afterparty that's always there every year.
>>10685854There's an afterparty? I haven't seen any announcements for that yet. I hope it's not at that ping pong bar because the drinks and people there sucked.
I’m definitely going I loved the last two years I went I’m hoping I can hang out with some people this time around so if there’s any after parties I’m going
I’m running on crack at this point, trying to do a whole chainsaw man cosplay before Halloween Is there going to be an after party also?
>>10685734Not that anon but nycc is fine just too broad for me, nothing really interests me there and way too much stuff that takes ages in terms of lines.
>>10688762Who're you going as?
>>10684460>bought tickets to go with friends>friend drama happens>friend group fragments into subgroupsshould i still go? might take a booster shot for vaccine before going. im a bit still anxious about large crowds.
>>10689238im going as denji, i need it done for my unis costume contest on the 27th
>>10689407Up to you, Anon. Do you think you'd still have fun despite the friend drama? Or would you rather just be out the ticket price?
>>10689407I think you still have time to rollover the tickets to next year if you want to. I don't remember if that was only temporary though.
>>10689407idk, do you think you'll have a fun time solo? I personally can, but I always cosplay so it's at least fun to goof off at the photoshoots and in random hall shoots.
I've never cosplayed before, I wonder if a cute girl will ask for a pic, I would know what to do, do you pose, do you stand there?
Anyone going to fan expo on friday/saturday? Need a friend to hangout with! 23yo, cute boy, chill, hmu - water#0055
>>10689702Just look up what poses your character do and copy them.
>>10689702What are you going as?As for poses I would say practice a couple. It sounds autistic but I cosplayed for the first time at nycc and everytime someone asked for a pic my brain wiped out of anxiety and I defaulted to my one practiced pose
>>10686007how'd the people suck?
>>10689702as the other 2 posters have said, look up poses and practice them in the mirror. Also, I *highly* recommend a prop, because props help out a ton with posing in my experience.
Did people who wanted their tickets mailed get it yet I usually just pick it up at the venue but opted to have it mailed for the first time.
Why is this thread so dead? What are you guys planning on going as?
>>10685854this anon, my masquerade plans fell thru sadge and I wasn't selected, but I also gave them no progress pics because it's a WIP. >>10690256planning to finish (and debut) umineko battler tho
>>10690256who knows, havent been on 4chan in ages desu. im going as chainsaw man and broly. got most of the materials cut for my denji cosplay, now i just need to assemble them and paint them. crazy thing is i need it done for next Wednesday for my unis costume contest i just gotta get purple tights and a incredibles muscle suit for now, along with some paint to paint it my skin color, i can deal with adjusting the muscles when the con comes around, im mainly making it for a halloween party, id imagine itll be super hard to dance as a full chainsaw man cosplay
>>10690256Maki Zenin, Jolyne and Sae-byeok. This is my first con back since early 2020 so I’m hyped!
>>10690256Catch me as Fushi from To Your Eternity on Sat.
>>10690256Going as Nero from DMC V and Gawr Gura, Im super pumped for alot of the cosplay meet-ups this time around
>>10690569Are you allowed to go to the meetups if you're not dressed as a character?
>>10690572Yeah of course, I went to the bleach one way back during ANYC second year and nobody gave me flak
What meet-ups are people interested in going to?
>>10690890Going to the smt one and my gf wants to go to the AoT and Sailor moon ones
will there be a rave?
>>10690890Gonna be at the naruto one, look for a black Minato
>>10690969theres a sonicboom box after party and another with otakus with attitude, i think the sonicboom box one is sold out though, youll have to look for the other one
>>10691102just checked today (and bought tix), sonicboombox one is back up, but it's on full pricing (so, $30). i'm guessing they got way more people than they expected and/or set really low limits. unfortunately, it's at that ping pong place again.
Is a painted nerf gun allowed at the con? Without the magazine inserted obviously.
>>10691583The official rules is that if it looks like a real gun, even if it has orange tape on it, it's not allowed. So as long as the paintjob makes it obvious it isn't a real gun it should be fine.
>>10691625Not him, but you think gold spray paint will get a pass?
>>10691792I think so yeah,
>>10690890is there a one piece one?hopefully i lose enough fat by then to go as a black law
>>10691919There's a 1 piece one at 1 on sunday I'm pretty sure
>>10691297Is that ping pong place bad?
What's the point of an afterparty? Never been to one so Im just curious
>>10692169Fun dancing, drinking, drugs maybe, socializing in cosplay, a fun time lol
>>10692214So everyone (who cosplayed) wears their cosplay to it?
>>10692169>what's the point of having fun
>>10692231yeah generally, i do, though i try to keep it light enough to dance in, dancing in a heavy mask you can barely see out of in a dark room is no fun at all
how do I get a gf please respond
>>10692410I personally wouldn't be premature, looking for girls at cons is generally a nightmare. Just be nice and go to an afterparty and maybe you'll meet people.
>>10692295Okay when you phrase it that way it's a little dumb lmao>>10692409Shit maybe me and my gf will go. Never done it before.
>>10692169Kinda hoping I can meet a qt to either become gf or pipe, can't think of any better opportunity I'll have than being among my "own people"
>>10692508>Okay when you phrase it that way it's a little dumb lmaojust taking the piss, but also there's people here that legitimately can't into fun
Anybody know a good way to go through artists who are going to AnimeNYC? The setup they have on their website this year makes it hard to just see who's going who I may know.
Can’t wait, tehe
>>10692410talk to them, ask for a picture, maybe confess your love anon >>10692508definitely fun if you go with a gf or bf for sure>>10692547honestly this is the best place for you, its so easy cause you have an instant talking point in terms of cosplays
>>10693488I'll be cosplaying all 3 days, there's only one official afterparty, so what's the best method to go about this?
>>10692168It's alright, but Otakus with Attitude would be pretty boss. SonicBoomBox is 'ight if not overrated.
>>10693534Theirs the legend bar that alot of people prefer over the ping pong place. Theirs also fetlife were people advertise after parties and junk.
Anyone doing a meetup? I'm working as staff this time around
Going to the Senpai Squad afterparty, anybody know what to expect? My first time going to one.
Just got my pass in the mail
what's the best way to let the women attending know i'd pay for their "time"
>>10693662I'd be down to do a gull meetup one of the days.
>>10693534There is this one going on on Friday too.Also anyone know if there’s an after party on Saturday? I wanna go on both Friday and Saturday but it’d be a shame if there was only stuff happening on Friday
>>10693987Quick question also, has anyone been to the Sony hall before? I like senpai squad and owa but I’m scared that song hall is just gonna be a concert and not a kind of dance thing. I wanna choose before it sells out
>>10693987I've been to a different weeb event at that bar, it was pretty meh. The location was decently sized, but the time I went they didn't have a coat check and the DJ was pretty average. >>10692168It's not awful, ping pong just doesn't really go with drinking, I'd rather if they had arcades or game stations or something. Expect to not be able to play ping pong because it'll be crowded as fuck. Also, their bar is frequently understaffed so the line can get a bit excessive. The venue itself is pretty large though, and there's a dance floor, etc.
Any predictions on what the turnout might look like?
>>10694392Not the same but NYCC had a lot of people but I hear Animenyc is a little smaller even though it's in the same place
How hard is it to make friends at these things? Cosplaying CSM & JJK which are also my first cosplays.
>>10694473Not very, just keep a cool head like someone mentioned in the thread you already have stuff to talk about since both recipients are in cosplay. Hope you make a new friend
Is there some kind of unspoken rule about only wearing one cosplay per day? Because everyone I've heard from wears a different cosplay every day of these events.This'll be my first time cosplaying and I only have the one. Would it be considered weird if I wore the same cosplay all three days, or am I just overthinking this and feeling insecure since it's my first time?
>>10694662Overthinking friend, My first time I wore the same cosplay both days and this time I'm wearing the same cosplay the two days I'm dressing up.Might just be me but personally I enjoy seeing people wear the same costume more than once. It's like "Oh hey there goes that dude/girl again" Not everyone has a fleet of costumes to choose from
>>10694666Thanks anon, I appreciate it. Who will you be dressing up as?
>>10694667I'll be wearing the Demonica Armor from Shin Megami Tensei. My first time making a helmet so I'm nervous but I've gotten a lot of advice and done a fair bit of research so I'm excited.You?
>>10694662I had the same issue before, but I slowly but surely developed a bigger wardrobe. There's absolutely no issue with it. In fact, I usually make costumes of characters I'm currently obsessed with, so I always feel like I should wear them multiple times because I like them so much.
>>10694673Oh cool, yeah I can see that helmet being intimidating to start on but it sounds like you've got things down. Got pics of your progress on the helmet so far?I'll be cosplaying Oberon/Vortigern from Fate. I feel you about being nervous since this is my first time making a cosplay too and it's I think mostly done, but there are still some parts where I think, "alright, how the fuck am I gonna do this", but I think two or three weeks is enough to hammer it all down.. hopefully.>>10694699It's encouraging to know I won't be the only one, thanks. That'll be one less thing to make me feel awkward now at least.
>>10694673>>10694748Good luck you two, I love to see them when they are done
>>10694662There will be thousands of people there, you're not that noticeable
>>10694854Damn who fucking jizzed in your cornflakes, all they did was overthink a question
>>10694953>>10694854It's also not necessarily true. I always remember people I take pictures with/talk to and I see them around during the con
First time going to AniNYC and first time going to a con in COVID times. I'm pretty excited, going as Hideri from Blend S. Can you pick up your badge at nighttime? I'm planning to pick it up late on Friday night.
>>10695020Be my gf
I might go as dead master from brs but I still need the Horns and idk if I wanna lug that scythe around all day>>hopesDon't get drugged at an after party
>>10695126I will protect you from any drugs my liege
>shit I ordered from ali express' last update was handed over to carrier for transportation>this was a week agoIt's not getting here in time, FUCK
>>10695188Praying for you anon.
>>10695188shit mangalso, just remembered i still haven't gotten my badge in mail yet.
>>10694392for reference the newest Hololive generation was announced as a guest panel last week, so just on that merit I would expect some increase in ticket sales
>>10695251Speaking of is anybody going to the hololive meetup on sunday?
>>10695188Same, I ordered a wig 2 weeks ago and I am praying that it comes on soon, good luck>>10695327I might, depends on what my friends are doing though
>>10695188also ordered a prop over 2 months ago via amazon that still hasnt gotten here. Just gonna make it myself at this point.
They sold out of 3 day passes online but I just got one from go go curry in the city turns out I was the first to buy one they have a metric fuck ton left
>>10695798Anime NYC never actually run out of tickets. I'm sure they purposely limit their online sales for marketing reasons and tell people to buy their tickets elsewhere if they still want to go and not miss out, aka FOMO.
>>10684460Please don't tell me I'm gonna have to suffer through another fucking weeb swarm when I'm trying to commute to and from Penn Station. God I hate all of you. I hope humanity never has another large gathering again due to perpetual covid restrictions
>>10684648No one gives a shit about whether your card is fake or not, it's just part of their shitty, low-paid job to ask for it, so show them something resembling one and you're fine.I was in NYC last month, it was perfectly fine to just show them a photo of your card on your phone. High-end places didn't even ask to see it.
>>10684460I recommend taking the 7 all the way to the end at Flushing if you want to walk around and pretend you're in Korea or China. There's good, cheap Korean food in the shopping malls. There's a Teso, but that's about it for Japanese-themed stores.You might also try "Koreatown" in midtown Manhattan, but I think Flushing is a better experience overall.
>>10696038Why are New Yorkers such annoying faggots. Get a car
>>10696135>Driving in NYC Yeah I don't know about that one.
I'm working as crew this year and I'm going to be the biggest fucking asshole and make all your time spent at the con miserable good luck faggots
How much do I have to pay to have a cute girl let me smell her sweaty post con feet.
God now that my costume is starting to come together I'm really starting to feel the time crunch even though we still have 2 weeks. Anybody else panicking?
>>10696135>Driving through NYC at 2 mph then paying almost 3 digits for parkingI can tell you think you know a lot about NYC through movies
>>10696151New Yorkers are mainly antisocial and we can pick up social cues. Plus, no one talks to crews anyway and if we do, the first 5 seconds will tell us if you're such a miserable shithead and if you are, we would cut you off, ignore you and talk to another crew member so good luck faggot
>>10696279Ironic. You've either literally never left Manhattan or don't live in NYC. Not to mention there are ways to avoid this in Manhattan. So again you don't know what you're talking about.>>10696147Gf and I have no problems driving in Manhattan lol.
>>10696279Actually I can tell you think NYC means Manhattan so I have my answer already. Stay in the apartment your parents rent for you
>>10696151How? You barely exist to us
I don't have a ticket for the con, nor do I plan on buying one at this point as I've been spending too much money. Does anyone know where I could find a good after party where I can get a GF or get laid? I've heard the ping pong play for the official one is shit.
Hey sorry if this was asked and answered in a prior thread or what not, I read the thread so I have a general idea but might just ask it out right.Not new to NYC but first time attendee here, any words of advice for the con specifically? I get how NYC works but I've never been to ANYC so yeah sorry for the dumb question
>>10696471Have you been to nycc?
>>10696476nope, first time goer for any NYC con, sorry not trying to ask for spoonfeeding I just dunno what to expect other than smell of piss.
>>10696478kek if you want to hit me up on my burner email I can talk to you about it on discord or just through email@example.com
>>10696489Sorry I don't got a burner email but if there is a discord for the con or whatever lemme know. Watching the thread so if you got a discord or if there is a discord for this con lemme know.
>>10696471yeah try out the reddit theirs always a discord link there
>>10695798Allowing the 3 day passes to sell out online was some real denthead shit. Since the only people that are gonna buy the 3 day passes from retailers are people that live in the city, a lot of them aren't going to sell.The con organizers claim to be so fucking experienced, but between this and the many gaffes last year, it sure seems like they don't know what they're doing.Regardless, hope those of you that are going have a good time. I was on the fence about going, but in the end I decided one weekend of maskcuckery (NYCC) was enough for me this year.
We should have a meetup outside the con on Saturday night
>>10696548>outsideThat's on you anon. Looks like the meetup for cgl might be somewhere inside depending how the mask stuff goes. I am all for standing outside but not for 1 hour while people stumble around to awkwardly find each other.Anyone know a good place for like a landmark or what not at least somewhere semi warm around the con?
>>10696555I'd love to meet up somewhere outside of the con itself as I don't have a ticket.
>>10696555The rum house is pretty nice
Oh fuck yeah I realize its going to be freezing and shit so some landmark inside the con center would be better
Looks like the meetup will be inside, still debating the place but if >>10696561 can elaborate on a time I am fine with that. I just don't wanna be freezing my balls off in my dress while we sit and stand there, doesn't help that somehow you run out of 3 day badges but still sell all 3 day badges!?!?!??!Game plan with some of /vp/ is to go to chinatown for something at least thursday for something so if anyone wants to join we are going to git some shit. Open to suggestions, there really isn't a discord that's organized for this that I found but willing to drink with all ya'll.
>>10696571I'm down to drink, Chinatown is kinda far though.
>>10696574Yeah like I said it's going to be a one off thing but hell, who can't go to book off or some weeb shit in cosplay for this shit. If you know some places by all means feel free to share, but looking at the map I don't think "ayo bro hang out by this food truck" will work too well
>>10696571I'd say wait for a discord to be made it usually happens to be made around the time of the con,
>>10696575When are you going to Book-Off? I'd love to meet up with some anons. I'm not attending the con, so someplace like that would be the best for me.
>>10690256Kaeya from Genshin, gonna make the Blizzard Strayer set and Alley Flash. First time cosplaying in 3 years very excited. Trying to figure out how to make the sword collapsable so I don’t have to carry on
>>10696514People had an entire fucking year to order a 3 day online, I don't want to hear a shred of excuses from any fuck who couldn't do that in time
>>10690256Simon Blackquill's shit probably won't get here in time though
>>10696576Here's a general use discord, I will try to organize something, like a dinner when the date comes closer, but I do suggest that everyone keeps their options open /yFmmAJt
>>10696548I'd rather have a meetup inside the con, since it'll be cold as balls and my cosplay has no jacket. But hey, that's just me.
>>10696681Maybe I'm retarded but what do I do with that link? I tried pasting it at the end of discord.com and it gives me an error. Please be patient with me I have the IQ of a mentally challenged goldfish.
>>10696818How about outside of the con, but indoors somewhere near by?
>>10696861That, I could do. A meet up definitely would be fun since I'll be going alone through the con and it'd feel kind of lame to end the con without really having done much socialization or interactions.
>>10694673If you're going in a Demonica I'll absolutely wanna check you out. Love my space marine.
>>10696979It's my first helmet so don't expect too much but Ill be trying my best!
>>10695246so i thought i paid for my ticket/badge august 30th and got an email confirmation but when i look for it in my email(s) nothing shows. so i went to see if i got charged $50 for the sunday ticket, and i dont see anything on my CC(s) statement, even though i remember vividly clicking options for badge to be mailed to me.is it too late to purchase and get sunday badge mailed to me in time for the 19th?
>>10697306Try going to any of the places they listed and see what they have available
>>10696819no idea mang
>>10696819>>10697332You have to type in discord(.)gg then the slash with the letters and numbers. Just keep in mind it's a slow server, so don't expect toi much. I do strongly encourage that you keep tabs on the thread here in case if someone plans something here as well
So any updates on people's updates?
>>10697461Nothing yet, also I feels like there isn't that much hype about the con this year. Maybe I am not looking in the right places?
>>10697461big concrunch moment right now because I'm realizing I didn't clean up or iron any of my past cosplays since otakon so I need to get them in shape for this con.
>>10697498Yeah, I'm not seeing much hype either. It's not as if people aren't going, as 3 day and Saturday tickets have sold out online. I'm just not seeing much "buzz", though.Perhaps I'm just not paying much attention since I've decided to skip this year, idk. I just really don't feel like masking up for a whole weekend.ANYC is just another one of those cons that supposedly care so much about people safety that they will make masks and vaccines mandatory, but won't put a cap on attendance.Safety as long at their bottom line isn't impacted, right?
>>10697498I've been seeing hype slowly build up. Practically it's not many people, but if you look in the right places you can find a lot of excitement and a surprising amount of randos just going. Guess it's what you'd expect of a mid-level pseudo-corporate con.I'm actually pretty excited for the AA this year, too. A lot of interesting people coming out.
>>10697513>ANYC is just another one of those cons that supposedly care so much about people safety that they will make masks and vaccines mandatory, but won't put a cap on attendance.yeah the lack of attendance cap is dumb, but I also wonder if they don't expect a lot of people to attend because of COVID in the first place. take NYCC for example: estimated 260k people in 2019 and dropped to 150k last month for 2021. that is an over 50% reduction and wouldn't surprise me if animenyc sees low turnout similar to that.
>>10697513>>10697516My tiny sample size of 20 people are excited and hyped. But for the general population, it's not as hyped as it used to be probably due to some people still paranoid about covid, some bans on international flights towards the US since the last two years there were a lot of international attendees, some exclusive booths aren't arriving like the Funimation, BlueFin, or gaming companies, and the lack of Japanese guests, concerts, and idols really killed it for a lot of people. I expect this con to be chill like the first year but I might be proven wrong in the case and I don't care, I just want to go.
>>10684555New Yorker here. Nothing is closed lol. I plan on only going to NYC for the con then returning back to Westchester afterwards. If you guys want to eat after the con and you don't mind taking the train, White Plains doesn't have any vaccine mandates. A lot of people don't even wear masks.
>>10693841Not encouraging illegal activity, but ngl there are a lot of sex workers that cosplay. I'd check their Instagram first. Don't harass some poor innocent girl for illegal activities.
>>10697670You're not a New Yorker bro. Westchester might as well be PA.>White Plains doesn't have any vaccine mandates. A lot of people don't even wear masksWhat the hell, why aren't they bringing the reptile expo back then?
>>10697670Food wise Isn't the con center close to hells kitchen? Why travel that far out?
>>10697680Because NYC is dirty, dangerous, and reeks of weed. I'd rather be closer to home and a chill environment with good food and less crime.
>>10697672Lmao, let me guess. You don't know how to drive? You sound like an NYU kid. Westchester literally borders the damn city lol. I lived in NY my whole life. Just say you don't know how to drive the highways and go. Lol
>>10697672I can't even imagine making a take this retarded lol. You sheltered weebs need to go out more. Also the reptile expo brings ppl from bumfuck Florida and Alabama. It's a different situation with different risks. Seriously go to a restaurant in Westchester, they're not going to force you to wear masks. Latimer literally tried so hard to keep shit open.
>>10697684>>10697686The former is proof of what I said. NYC is not dangerous for a white kid from Westchester lmfao. You're not going to Brownsville or Bronx River bro. It's Manhattan.
>>10697688You're clearly not a woman lol.
>>1069769You live in NY, you are not a New Yorker, there's a difference.You want the epic kool factor of saying you're a new yorker while talking about how scawy new york is. You're from upstate, friend
>>10697686Different anon here. I lived in NYC for most of my life and I understand how annoying NYU kids are. Most of them are spoiled brats who are loud, rude, and obnoxious and they popped up all the time whenever I went out to restaurants in Greenwich.That said, I've been living in a city in Western NY for most of my adult life now and everyone here who's heard of Westchester doesn't consider it as part of NYC, they just see it as a downstate area where Yonkers is. NYU kids may be douchey most of the time, but they're right if they say that someone who's in Westchester is not a resident of NYC / "New Yorker".
>>10689579unis? like the school i used to go to or typo?
>>10697684my guy the con is like a 10 minute walk from the most expensive neighborhood in the city, chill out
>>10697684I love dirt, danger, and weed. I'll take special care to stay away from Westchester going foward.
>>10697692I used to work as a bouncer at some bars and clubs in the area and NYU kids are annoying. Some are stupid enough to wear their ID badges and I just snatch them and threaten to call the Uni for public intoxication and drug use.I'm excited to back to NYC since I left before the lockdown. Can't wait to see vtuber cosplays and also walk around the city again (Kino, bookoff, and Nintendo world).
>>10697684>>10697670Damn you sound like a faggot.
Final update how is everyone doing this week in terms of cosplay getting here etc
>>10698412bushwick reporting in. gonna request time off for friday and get there in morning, maybe see a friend.
Where the orgies gonna be at?
>>10698412Gotta do a bit of adjustments after Halloween for my chainsaw man cosplay. It’s gonna be a hell week
Would be great to meet up with /cgl/ fags if they arent racist fucks like last time.
>>10696471Food inside the con is a rip-off, there are usually food trucks that are right outside though
>>10698663>Worrying about racism >Using the F-wordAnon...
Would be great to meet up with /cgl/ racists if they arent fag fucks like last time.
Would be nice to meet a qt at this thing, the lonely is starting to hit again
So depending on the outcome, will Manhattan be a safe place to move around?
>>10698663How were they racist? I mean I'm not surprised but during a meetup?>>10698764Are you that westchester faggot again? Your life is not, nor will it become, dangerous as a result of your adjacency to NYC
>>10698678>going on /cgl/>meeting up with /cgl/>not expecting fagsISHYGDDT
>>10698677im 90% sure anons means fags in the casual "person on 4chan" way and not homophobic way.i hope.>>10698663who and when did you meet? what did they say? that confessions thread got me a bit worried someone gonna spill some spaghetti that might get people reported and kicked.
>>10698677Don't you know fags are above blacks in the oppression totem pole
Anyone need friends to go with? I can adopt one or two of you guys, also have tickets for the Belle premier sunday
>>10698888>I can adopt one or two of you guysi cant wait to see how fuggin weird shit is gonna be at this con
>>10698930first time at anime nyc? weirdest part was this 40 year old fat guy in a felix argyle cosplay, that's it
>>10698773Mostly on the discord, which is filled with nazi and white pride memes.>>10698850some stick kid who was clearly uncomfortable with a meet, the meetup only lasted for about 2 minutes before I left him alone.
People are actually scalping ANYC tickets, kek. I wonder how many of them will be left with a pile of unsold tickets
>>10699003Probably easy to scalp since the three day weekend sold outActually wanted to get into the BNHA concert and missed out on the tickets, literally free money if you can resell those.
checking over the schedule again, it looks pretty dry panel wise. Panels starting at 2 fucking PM on Friday is weird as shit, too. What's weird is that I applied for a panel and they _still_ turned me down, like do they only have 2 rooms available or something?
>>10699039Panel timing is wild. But I suppose they need to cater to the unemployed weebs
>>10699039>What's weird is that I applied for a panelwait is this a thing? is it too late?
>>10699052yeah, anyone can apply to host any panel, but the admins themselves select who hosts what. I wanted to host a craftsmanship panel but there's already some other craftsmanship panels out there. what's weird is that it's not like they're paying me or anything lmao, makes me think they only have a very limited amount of rooms since this schedule is so sparse.
>>10699111oh you meant hosting, i thought we had to sign up to go to panels. nvm then.
Checked in today. Come to room 8427 for day 0 partying.
>>10699113you do need tickets for the sunday movie premeirs however, they were given out via lottery. You might find someone with an extra
>>10699197Checked in WHERE
>>10699256Jej. Had this exact same problem with AWA on Halloween night and never got an answer. What a shock!
>>10693788>Senpai SquadNo thanks I dont support them after finding out the person in charge faked cancer at some point. Not going to get into details but I am sure you can look it up
>>10699277Googles giving me nothing. Got a source on the drama?
>>10699307duse trust me my uncle works at senpai squad
So I was going to buy my 3 Day pass at the convention but I never expected the tickets to actually get sold out because that's never happened at any convention I've been at before.I don't suppose anyone is willing to sell theirs? I can only offer $80 for it though.
>>10699339Oh wait there's no attendance capacity limit right? So I can still walk in and get one?
>>10699341you're not gonna get a three day unless you buy a scalpers, the 2019 con was at capacity too. Best you can legally do is buy a friday ticket online
>>10699343Yeah I got the Friday ticket. This sucks but I guess this is what I deserve for being a dumbass.I'll just hope someone is willing to sell their Saturday ticket at the convention at least.Also where do I find scalpers online?
>>10699347Before checking scalpers some shops still have tickets for other days
>>10699349yeah that's a good point, places like kinokuniya might have tickets left
>>10699349Thanks for the heads up. This is going to be a close call because I don't get in to New York until Friday morning and none of the places take reservations.
>>10699339https://animenyc.com/get-tickets-at-local-shops/FYI gogocurry doesn't have 3 day pass, and i bought the last one at waypoint cafe.
anyone wanna hook up and fuck? M 4 F
>>10699379Gross creepKill yourself moid
>>10684460Anyone know when the cosplay repair area is gonna be open/what they'll have? Part of my cos didn't make it thru the train ride
>>10699379This ain't dragoncon. Gonna have to up your game instead of asking directly
Are orgys still a thing here?
>>10699499>>10699379slice your wrists
Do they have coat check ins?My cosplay is too thin for me to go without a heavier jacket that doesn’t fit in my bag
>>10699486>This ain't dragoncon.w-what happens at dragoncon?
>>10699509>$4 per coat, $4 per bag. It will be located across from Starbucks where it usually is.
Going all 3 days as Rob Lucci & hosting the One Piece meet ups as usual. If anyone needs a pass, let me know
>>10699546I could really use a Saturday or Weekend pass. How much would you want for it?
>>10699552I don’t charge for it at all. Just let me know where you’ll be and I’ll link up with you.
>>10699553>I don’t charge for it at all.You're some kind of saint! You'd be saving my entire weekend because I was an idiot and waited way too long to get a pass for myself. I don't have too good an idea of what the Javits is like though. Would it make sense if I said we could meet up at the registration lobby around 11:30am? Either that or Kinokuniya bookstore around 10am. But whatever works for you. I'll be the guy wearing this shirt with glasses so hopefully that's enough to identify me but I'll probably spot you first.
>>10699556I live in Times Square so that works for me. Registration lobby it is.
>>10699572I can't thank you enough. I'll see you there.
>>10699556I'm not him but going to tackle you if I see you so you'll miss your meeting hehe
This line is ridiculous. For reference NYCC wasn’t this messy at all. This is just for the wristbands
>>10699572Yeah the line is insane I got here at 10:30. I don't think I'll be able to get in by 11:30 but I'll just stay at the lobby until I see you. Sorry, I really didn't expect this.
>tfw got the wristband yesterday with no lines
>>10699600Same. So glad I booked it after work
>>10699307NTAYRT, I'm sure the drama's been deleted by now, but he's also been called out for tracing art for merch multiple times. He also actively browses this board, so he'll likely be defending himself ala>>10699342>>10699308
>>10699600I got a wristband early too haven't gone to the center yet but is there a separate entrance or line for people who already have it?
>>10699605No. They actually combined them because they said they are understaffed. And the show floor hasn’t even opened yet
i purchased my three day pass before they sold out
>>10699611That's retarded whats the point of even having it early then
>>10699611Is this a joke? What the fuck.
>>10699546Well, I finally made it into the building and I'm in the lobby. I'll wait here but I completely understand if you're not willing to meet up still.
Any bros make it inside yet?
>>10698888Please adopt me. All my friends cancelled in going on today either because they got busy, lazy, or sick of waiting in line, and going alone will be so boring. Where/how can I find you anon
>>10699639Don't be a pussy. I go alone every year man up. Isolation will build character
>>10699640Then why are you still here
>>10699641I just off work and am headed there no you weakling
at this point the sun will go down before this line ends. everytime i get close to what i think is the end there’s a whole new crowd of people. i can’t believe it’s this unorganized what a shit show
i got in at 10 am and looked outside 7 hours later and there's still a retarded line outside lol
got here with friends at 11made it in at 3also heads up for those of you still on line you need to keep the wristband all three days or youre back on line
>>10699657can I skip the line with my wristband
>>10699660yes if you have badge and band
>>10699638I'm in! Still defrosting.
line turned into a crowd than just kinda all went in
Shoutouts to all of the people that begged the con to have a vaccine requirement, and are now whining and complaining about the hours long line to get in. That's what you fucking get.I'm sure this could have been done a lot better, but the organizers of this con have already proven themselves to be fucking clueless after 2019's convention. The organizers that tout themselves as being sooooo experienced.What an absolute shitshow.
who can host and wants to be paid for their time
you think i can sneak in saturday with just a friday badge
>>10699700no the staff are very vigilant
>>10699702anyone have an extra saturday badge
>>10699596What do you expect? Anime cons are always ran by incompetent people.
>>10699611>they said they are understaffed.This is now the excuse for any convention when shit hits the fan.
>>10699683I sincerely doubt it was a choice. NYC doesn't even let you eat indoors without a vaccination card.>>10699712>>10699713Yeah, it's not an excuse. If you need staff, pay them enough to make it worth enough for them to show up. Crowd and demand management is a well-developer science. If you're too cheap to follow it that's a you problem.
anyone figure out how to take the bracelet off without breaking it?
>>10699713Theyre understaffed because of vaccine mandates!
>>10699722get luckynobody actually looks hard at these bracelets so if the peg breaks you could probably twist tie it instead and nobody would notice
>>10699723They knew long in advance that this was going to be a thing. They knew how many people would be attending today, or at least an upper bound on it. Handing out wristbands is a consistent, predictable task. Furthermore, they could have offered the option to upload your vaccination card online like my school did so having a badge would itself be proof of vaccination. They have no excuse.
>>10699725i got an extra three by going in the lines and hiding my wristband in my sweater but showing my vaccine passif at any point i need to take this one off i git backups
would just like to thank all the guinea pigs who actually got the vaccine. My card is fake and I got in
Overall felt kinda empty this time with no hype for any panels, but it should be much busier tomorrow.Some of these girls had booba spilling from their shirts and I had to do some double-takes.
>>10699735>Some of these girls had booba spilling from their shirts and I had to do some double-takes.Same. They might as well have just told you their hourly rate
>>10699734>My card is fakeEnjoy a few years in a federal prison.
>>10699737Who is gonna catch me, tough guy?
>>10699739Those cards are going to be worthless in a year when every place is going to require a digital version.
>>10699740You'll be dead from the vaccine by then anyway
>>10699727>They have no excuse.They will have some when AnimeNYC won't make it next year due to low attendance.
>>10699604take your meds schizoid.
So how is it going to work tomorrow now that we have the bracelets? Can we just go in and out or will there be another line for it? How can we tell where to go?Today was such a shit show, it took me 40 minutes standing in line before realizing I was in the wrong line. No staff to organize or direct people, it was shit.
>>10699639Sorry I didn't get to you earlier anon, if you're going tomorrow we can try to set something up. I'll pay attention to the thread this time, sorry I didn't earlier. I plan on getting there around 1130ish
>>10699770self fulfilling prophecy kekkim in thread confirmed
>>10699799suck a dick, e-drama schizoid
>>10699546I saw you holding a girl's hand why weren't you holding mine
>>10699771People who picked up bracelets early could just walk in, so if you saved it they should let you in too
>>10699771They just sent out an email about revised line planning
Car show was disappointing. My GT would wreck all the cars there
>>10699604>>10699277>>10699307some quick art tracing proof, pretty much any sticker he sells is traced anime screen caps>>10699802can you explain why all your stickers are traced kim?
>>10699811meds, redditspacing itoddler schizoid.don't let the door hit you on the way out
>>10699811one with his name on it so he doesn't try to bawwwleet it like when he got called out last time >>10699812tracing is embarrassing kim
>>10699811Damn imagine tracing your art and it still looks like shit
>>10699814Quit harassing him sicko
>>10699814another easily identifiable one
>>10699817it's not harassment kek.
>>10699821stalking and slander is
>>10699821anon don't reply to him, he's trying to get jannies to delete the posts like last time
Imagine buying a Friday ticket and spending more time in a line than in the con.
>>10699824slander has to be lying.
>>10699815Speaking of, did anyone see that one asshole at the artist's selling other people's works? He had Renge Murata prints at his booth.
Those Indians know how to cook a good pizza godamn
Are there any girls on here that are going this weekend and want someone to talk to/make new friends?
Saw a Satsuki cosplayer today with absolutely zero ass.How disrespectful to the character can you be?
>>10699741Not that Anon, but let me clarify:I hope you choke on a dick and die painfully
How was it this year?I live in NYC but didn't think it was going to be worth. Want to see if I made the right decision or not.
>>10699546Do you still have a weekend or any other pass available Rob Lucci dude?
Going on Saturday with a friend, hoping it won’t be too bad. Like some of the other posts are saying
>>10699933Actually continuing this, this is our first time going to NYC convention as big as this. What should I expect?
>>10699867Did she have titties though
>>10699903>>10699934You can expect a knuckle sandwich from me if you tell me where you'll be
so how’s day 2 of linecon 2021
>>10699838>Imagine buying a Friday ticket and spending more time in a line than in the con.Basically any con in the pandemic era?
>>10699965Otakon wasn't nearly as bad.
Nothings fucking changed I have both the Badge and Band and we’re waiting in line for ???
>10+ hours of convention + 4+ hour afterparty on 6 hours of sleepFML
>mfw reading angry comments on ANYC's social media pagesIt's another anime con that is ran by stupid incompetent people episode. It's always funny reading angry comments by people who paid to either freeze or collapse outside, risking their health all fir the sake fun and amusement.
>>10699981The worst part is the 3 Day badges were wasted on these babies instead of people like me who don't complain about every little thing.
>>10699982you're bitching now, fag.
>>10699981>>10699982All those people complaining obviously have never been to Anime Expo.
>>10699982If you can beat me in an arm wrestling match I'll give you my 3 day
>>10699981So what are you in this thread for? To just sit back and mock others as you sip tea in your petticoat?
>>10699994Yes because we are still in a global pandemic.
>>10699996only pandemic is what a fag you are
>>10700003Don't be bitching when Hochul puts the state in lockdown next month.
>>10700005I'll put you in a headlock help cure you
I stare straight at some of these whores' tits and don't even try to hide it. I appreciate the free eye candy with badge purchase.I don't understand why no one goes up to them and just yanks their tops down. There's hardly any difference with how much they're showing off already.
>>10700030Do it I dare you.
>>10699996Theres a pandemic?
>>10699635I’m still down to meet up. I got more passes too. But security doesn’t care anymore. People were getting in with no pass if you went to the escalator downstairs leading to the show floor
>>10699930I got a few left. I’m about to head to the con now
>>10700048>>10700049Awesome. I'm sorry about yesterday. That was stupid of me to assume I could get in at a reasonable time.I really don't know how long the line will be today but I'll head there now and wait in the registration area. So maybe around 3:30 - 4? I'll just approach you if I see you.
>>10700051Nah it’s understandable. No need to apologize at all. And if you want some free stuff let me know. I’m really good with the companies here so I’ll be sure to look out for you
>>10700052That was actually quick. I'm at the lobby now.
>>10700055Would probably help if I said at the seating area right across from the ticket pick up.
Rob Lucci I am at the lobby entrance by the ticket will call area. Next to Starbucks
>>10700067wanna wait togetherI'm sitting next to a Ganyu across from the ticket pickup table
>>10699965>Basically any con in the pandemic era?No honey, no.NYCC, which was held in the same venue and also had a vaccine requirement, got everyone in the building in a timely manner. I only went to a couple of other cons this year, but things went smoothly at those as well.Waiting in line for hours isn't the fucking norm at all, pandemic or no. There's no excuses for this type of bullshit. Entrance on Friday during 2019 at ANYC was a clusterfuck too.It's just>It's another anime con that is ran by stupid incompetent people episodethis, as >>10699981 put it.These convention organizers brag about how smart and experienced they are, but they had their share of problems at the last show, which people seem to have forgotten.
>>10700105A lot of these organizers are cheap and don't want to hire the amount of paid staff needed to make these things fluid.
I'm getting sleepy so I'm leaving the con now Rob Lucci. Sorry I couldn't find you but thanks for offering a pass in the first place.
who else is going to view the masquerade? I need a hand to hold bros
>>10700119Me. Where do you want to meet up?
>>10700126Gonna do some more shopping first but will let you know
>>10700126I'm 6'5 and ready to loom over you bro. Where we meeting?
>>10700067Just curious, did you end up getting a pass?
>>10700149I had to line up because they said they were about to cut off. I'm behind the pillar near the bathrooms. Wearing a red hat and a Miku shirt
>>10700149>>10700161Walk up to the tape and I'll act like you were with me the whole time
>>10700162I missed this message and you brudda I'm headed inside though
>on line with cute girl>She's clutching a banana peel and trying to gauge if she can get it in the garbage>watch her land it>give her a nod of approval >"Glad someone saw that"be still my heart
>>10700168>ask cute shuten douji in a maid outfit for a picture>she immediately picks up her phone and pretends to talk with someone>just gives a half-assed smile and wave while looking awayi wish my heart could still feel
Where do I go to meet up with fellow autists?
>>10700169What's her onlyfans
>>10700169>people don’t ask you for pictures
>>10700169how fugly are you?how did you ask her?do you smell?
>>10700169could be worse>asked someone if I could take a picture with them>because of these dumb masks they misheard and thought I just wanted a pic of them>they just stood there posing and I had to commit to it since I didn't have the heart to correct the understandingsigh
>>10700184>how fugly are you?Pretty damn ugly.>how did you ask her?Walked up to her with phone in hand pointing to it while asking loudly: "Shuten! can I get a picture?"Would have really liked that picture too. Pic related is what she was dressed as. Also she was standing in line for an event but it was spacious around her with few people, she was alone, and the event wasn't starting for like 30 minutes when I asked.>do you smellNo one's ever said anything but no one's ever said I was ugly either. So probably. I think from now on I'll just take creep shots of girls from behind if I spot their cheeks hanging out. People seem to passively label me a weirdo regardless of what I do anyway.
this slam poetry at the masquerade mad me uncomfortable
>>10700067Bless brother. My bad that I was so busy. Crunchyroll and so many other people kept calling me around for photos and stuff. You got my # so hit me up around 11pm tonight. I’ll get you in and your boy too
>>10700187damn, would have worked if you added the -sama
It's over tomorrow bros the emptiness is already hitting me
>>10700185Almost all cosplayers like being photographed. The ones who don't are usually professionals on a shoot who don't want copyright problems.
>>10696607>People had an entire fucking year to order a 3 day onlineThere was nothing interesting announced until the last 2 months.
>>10700211My con was over Friday.
>>10699838I don't have to imagine it, I experienced it. So did other people who got there at 10am and didn't get in until 2:30pm.
I ran out of cosplays to do so for the last day I’ll just go around with my camera taking picsMaybe I’ll shoot someone if they asked but I doubt anyone will unless I just lug around a sign like that one guy asking to be with a sign of his
>>10700187everyone always let me take a selfie with them if I ask sucks to be you
>>10700237I'm always too scared to ask for selfies. I just get regular pictures.
>>10699950ha, you didn't see me nerd
>>10700169>>10700187thats crazy anon. I usually cosplay for the attention and shit like most people do so someone dressing as THAT character and not wanting a picture is so odd to me.
>>10699908I liked it, even though I missed the only panel I was interested in. A lot less snobby elitist cosplayers this time around, most people were really sweet. I say this as someone who used to attend Animefest back before it merged with NYCC.
>>10699908It was nice. You had to show up like fucking 3 hours early to get into the One Piece event which is fucking stupid but whatever. Overall tho I had a good time a lot of nice people.
>>10700187If I'm thinking of the same shuten you met (there were like 3 when I went), it wasn't because you were ugly. I was near her once and she kept giving guys looks so I didn't bother wanting to deal with her attitude. I saw her again later walking with tall muscular guys so take that for what you will. There's always going to be a handful of girls at cons that are like this, best to just ignore it and not let it get to you. Only 2 girls said no to me, the rest were more than happy.
Went to the Plus Ultra Entertainment party at OS and it was pretty wack overall. Almost no energy and the bar is located right in front of the entrance.
>pretend I’m taking a panorama video with my phone>sneak some creepshots into the viewfinderIt’s literally that easy.
>>10700112I have a spare pass I can give you if you are around Sunday. My gf cant make it so I rather give it to an anon so it doesnt go to waste
>>10700255i hope you fall down a flight of stairs and into a sharp pile of legos face first
that dance party circle hosted by the dj by the waifu cars was pretty fun, gf convinced me to jump in, it was great>t. black ryu
>>10699257How fucked in the head are you that you miss the giant check in desk to the right of the main entrance with a big CHECK IN sign?
>>10699546I ran into you! Thank you so much for getting me into the building & helping my little cousins out. You were more informative of everything there than any staff member
>>10700255Share the creep shots please.
Please tell me someone else saw the annoying fat bitch in the led dress dancing and shouting while they were literally trying to give out awards at the cosplay contest
>>10700257Are you still around? I'd definitely still appreciate a pass.
Anybody else here cosplayed? It was my first time cosplaying and my god it felt powerful. All the hard work and sleepless nights put into the cosplay being validated by all the requests for pictures and asking if I had a cosplay social media page despite being a total novice really felt nice.I'd want to do it again next year but the awkwardness and embarrassment of commuting through the city alone in cosplay while feeling all the looks and stares from normal people felt crushing.
>>10700352Remember, validation is a drug
anyone want tickets to pompo the cinophile ny friend cants make it and i might just leave
>>10700367Let's go together, anon
>>10700370im leaving the line but you can have my band ill be in a pink sweater
if someone wants a wristband theres one stuck to a pillar near line bi hope whoever gets it enjoys the film
>>10700352Get a car
>>10700344Yes I am around let me know where you want to meet and the pass is yours
>>10700389Awesome, thanks man. I'm near the Gundam at the main entrance lobby near the Starbucks.Wearing a red Xiangling shirt.
>>10700389Or would it be easier for you to choose a place?
>>10700352Getting stares is half the fun. Just pop a huge stiffy next time someone does it and stare at them intently.
>>10700390Are you still there just waiting in line to get my lemonade atm
>>10700352i couldn’t agree more
>>10700412Yeah I'm still there. Right next to the Gundam statue.
>>10700352As a beginner cosplayer, I feel you. I haven't been to a con in almost two years so it felt wonderful to get lots of compliments and photo requests from people who liked my cosplay or were fans of the character/series my character was from.
Kinda hard to enjoy a con by yourself with major depressionMaybe I'll meet some of you tards next year if you're not scared of hanging with a brown skinned nigga.
I'm sitting down now near the Starbucks across from the Gundam statue.
>>10700429I'd only want to meet you if you're a flat-loving lolicon like me.
easily the worst ANYC but also probably the worst major con I've seen>literally the worst linecon i've ever seen (and for no reason!!), not even comparable to this year's otakon>the entire shitshow with the doors saturday evening when they locked everyone out and forced everyone into a single doorway several streets down without any warning>panel lineup is extremely skimp, the fan panels were all garbage meta commentary or industry shills selling dubbed box sets>seriously did they only have 3 panel rooms available why the fuck is the schedule so dogshitTHE one good thing they did this year is they combined the artist alley with the dealer's hall so it didn't have the two bag checks like the past ANYC's.I wouldn't have minded the lines being so bad IF THERE WAS ACTUALLY SHIT WORTH GOING TO
>>10700449I thought it was pretty enjoyed the artist alley a lot got a great haul
There were so many Mikus.I love seeing Mikus.
you know since they made a big deal about being accessible by the 7 train they should’ve disclaimed that it wasn’t available for weekend attendees and you needed to take the F or E train to 34th and walk westwards, especially since all the MTA does is put up a flyer and hope people see it
Another year where stuck up whores turn up their noses at me when I try to flirt. I guess I'll be forever alone. If conventions aren't somewhere I can pick up chicks then it's hopeless to find a weeb loli gf.
>>10700486We're here for you bro group hug.
>>10700486bitch you sound like you got no game
>>10700493You sound like a dumb nigger.
>>10700486>loli gfThere were some sexy kids dressed as Genshin lolis. Could've asked them.
>>10700494you’re the one here looking for the impossible
>>10700486Undoubtedly someone at the con will be interested given the sheer number of people, but you don’t seem to understand the vast majority aren’t interested in hooking up with a stranger.
>>10700498I saw plenty of people who looked worse than me with Klee gfs. It's not fucking fair.>>10700500I don't want a hookup I want a long term loving gf who I can devote all my love to
>>10700503how do you know that the two were dating to begin withyou asked???
>>10700503Women are shit bro. Apply that pain to something else like lifting
>>10700503Then your chances have gotten even worse nobody falls in love at first sight with another that just so happens to feel the same way
>>10700477to be fair its not like anyc can control the mtano one can control the MTA its just a source of misery
>>10700510What they can do, which is to notify people of said outage, was something they didn't do at all.
>>10700503I’d want to say that a con is no place to pick up chicks since everyone just goes there to have fun and buy weeb shit, not get hit on and harassed by guys.. but I do have a friend who got his gf from a con after she asked him who he was cosplaying as and he said “your future boyfriend” or something stupid like that, but it got a laugh out of her and he took it from there Like that other anon said, you just gotta have game. How the hell were you even talking to these girls? Like a real autist I’m guessing.
>>10700413>>10700421Who did you cosplay as, anons? Maybe I saw you there.
>>10700352semi-first timer here too (i've cosplayed before but it was really uncomfortable and i was only in it for a few hours)i really need to practice poses next time so i don't look like a retard
>>10700415Sorry I couldnt make it to you. Some idiot friend of mine misplaced the extra Sunday badge so It ended up in lost and found. We didnt know it ended up over there until after 4pm :( Im just like damn a badge went to waste
>>10700533That makes me sad but at least I know you didn't just forget or something.Thanks for offering in the first place.
>>10700519Your friend is probably a tall chad. I think a girl would call me gross if I ever said that. If you're not over 6ft then it doesn't work.
>>10700486>stuck up whoresSounds about right.
>>10700519>a con is no place to pick up chicks since everyone just goes there to have fun and buy weeb shitYeah let me tell you as someone who's been going here since the festival days, you couldn't be more wrong. Half the single Asian girls will date literally anyone who's white and at least a 5.t. had a pencil neck geek friend in hs with absolutely 0 game and he got a con gf every year.
>>10700551How tall is your friend because this is all that matters I think
>>10700555That little nigga was shorter than me and I'm 5'2 when I slouch. White boy was the king of Asian girls.
Girls don't seem to mind me taking pictures of and with them but I've never tried to hit on them are my odds better than I think?
>>10700558Would personally never attempt it out if fear of getting kicked out/banned but I'm also a short ugly fuck so it's more than likely.
>>10700522I'm >>10700421. I went as Hideri on Saturday, so if you saw an Asian guy cosplaying as Hideri, that was probably me
>>10700551>short>ethnicthe cosplay gf will not come to me unless i hit the lottery lmfao
>>10700574>ethnicOof yeah. Best to stick to white girls or your own race. MAYBE black girls if you're into them, in my own personal experience white and black girls are most open to interracial dating. Just forget the rest.
Rob Lucci here. So the One Piece meet up at 1pm was cut short, like 5 minutes and I direction, so I took over and brought over every single One Piece Cosplayer to get featured by Crunchyroll & RDCWORLD1! It was such a great time, and thank you to everyone who ran into me and just said what’s up to me. Next year I’ll have passes for a lot more people. And I will never charge either.
>>10700558Nobody would cosplay and not want the attention from it, its in no way a measure of desirability.
>>10700579One Piece is so fucking gay. Thanks for blocking the entire venue with your retarded 1000th episode bullshit.
did you all have fun
>>10700187>>10700169Was it pic related?
>>10700486>t. didn’t get invited to the after party orgies
>>10700579Dude thank you for everything. We got in smoothly because of you, and the one piece meet up was so much fun with you hosting it. I don’t know why they cut off the meet ups so quick. But the jojo one was pretty cool.
>>10700600Not exactly. I had fun going by myself, I was pleasantly surprised most people were nice to loners like me. It felt totally empty compared to when I used to go, also the line outside didn't help. I showed up at 2pm on friday and didn't get in until 4:10, then spent another 35 minutes on line for merch just to find out it was mostly bs. For what the tickets cost this con was an absolute ripoff. I'm actually one of the few that didn't like the artist and exibition hall mixed together, walking through all the autists blocking paths chitchatting got really annoying quick. It was more spacious than before, but there was still a huge amount of empty spaces in the back, I feel like they should have expanded the artist area more.
>>10700497Care to share pics for research purposes? Con loli gfs are fun to bring back to the hotel with >-<
>>10700449Agreed. The exhibit / dealer room felt lackluster. Even lunartoystore didn’t bring the heat this time around. The lame senpaisquad “itasha” schizomobile cars all get destroyed by a Tesla model S plaid. The lame liverydesign wackass music. No initial d car. The food was ass. The figurine hunting was nonexistent. Hypland sold cringe puffer jackets and bucket hat that will easily make girls laugh at u for wearing. Most clothes sold by other “hype wannabe” stores are lame af that u can’t flex. The only saving grace really was the artist alley.. but I don’t come to cons for the art. I come to steal loli figurines and take prime creepshots kek
>>10700352Meh. That feeling lasts for the first few times. Then it gets annoying when ur tryna take a piss or go meet with friends but being constantly bombarded by creepos and fangirls.
>>10700606Yes what's her onlyfans
I could have sworn that some vendors were selling knockoff figures and everything else felt overpriced overall.
>>10700695Everything is always overpriced it feels like. It's just kinda how it is at cons.
>>10700695It's always overpriced. You pay a con tax on any merch you buy from a con. It's a part of the experience.
Is it weird to ask people for socials? A lot of people liked my cosplay and it would have been fun to have more friends into the same shit as me but I always forgot to ask.
>>10700700Nah it’s not at all. That’s how I get my connects mostly when I go to the con. I make sure to get their socials.
>>10700700People asks for each other's Instagram all the time.
>>10700700Not strange at al, I like seeing people's progress pics. So people make cards and it makes tagging them easier and some are a bit more creative
>>10700653I wish I was courageous enough to ask them for a picture. One of them was dressed as fucking Yaoyao - the only Yaoyao I've ever seen at a con.But she was in a friend group with no parent nearby.
>>10700606That looks like her, yeah. Good find. This way I can just masturbate to better quality photos than my phone could take.
>>10699727They should've had bands up for grabs for 2 weeks in advance
Saw this really cute Nagi cosplayer as Aki on Saturday and got a pic,wish I asked for socials, but I was too in the moment
There was a really hot Saeko from highschool of the dead cosplay I saw on Friday. Did anyone manage to get a picture of her? She was a really thick asian chick.
>>10700740Was it her? https://twitter.com/confettiment/status/1462807023050010633?t=MPgGLkUb0bhH_5qLjimZ1w&s=19
>>10700657>fangirlsAs someone that normal gets next to no female attention this is a good fucking feel, one girl damn near started cheering in place, fuck that was cute
Anyone get pictures of this guy?I couldn't get one myself because every time I see him someone professional was recording or shooting him.
>>10700742Holy shit I'm pretty sure that is, you're a god, anon.
>>10700744Took this one, the guy was pretty cool. Couldn't find socials though, I am pretty sure their japanese>>10700745No prob, I found her while trying to find this damn Saeko Busujima cosplayer.
>tfw really proud of my first cosplay but can't take a good picture of myself to save my life>no friends to take pictures of me>was too shy to ask people at the con who took pictures to send them to me too>no pictures to commemorate the moment this sucks. i've been looking through instagram and twitter with the animenyc tag but don't see myself in anything. not that a shit ton of people took pictures of me anyway so it was a long shot but still.
>>10700460idrc about buying shit in dealer's/artist, since I can just buy exactly what I want online, and even if you're into dealer's/artist's, this year's con was basically a glorified shopping mall with extremely shitty lines, since the panels were nonexistent. >>10700600honestly not really, it was about the same as wandering around a shopping mall with friends. fun because it was with friends, but nothing more than that. i'm pretty bummed out because I used to be a pretty huge ANYC shill and it was my favorite con but this year was weak as fuck
>>10700775That stupid ass line bullshit put a permanent damper on people's moods and the overall vibe, what the fuck were they thinking not having that band shit running all week, if you could've gotten a band since the 15th there would've been no issues, and that used to be a vax spot, so they can do it
>>10700432I wish I'd been able to talk you. I tried seeing if could I could spot any fellow lolicons to finally talk with at the con but no such luck. I recall there being about 3 of these books. 2 of them disappeared at some point, with one of the purchases being from me. So there was definitely a fellow Comic LO enjoyer out there
>>10700804You can meet fellow lolicons in prison usually if you'd like to go.
>>10700804Where the fuck did you find that!? It better not have been at the Kinokuniya booth because I scoured that top to bottom. I can't help but feel that I always miss out on the good stuff, like the time I saw some guy walk out the dealer's room with a pillow cover (regular, not daki) of Illya in her pajamas. At least Hen Da Ne sometimes has loli doujinshi even if they say they don't carry it.>I tried seeing if could I could spot any fellow lolicons to finally talk withI had the pleasure of experiencing that before. It was quite pleasant. We hit it off after I showed him pic related. It was kind of obvious he was into it from the topics we were discussing.I can only ever make it to Otakon and Anime NYC because I'm a dirt-poor NEET but I'd love to be an autist with you if you end up going to either con next year.
>>10700606qt 3.14 Sounds like a bit of an ass hole move though. Is what it is I guess, life moves on.
Dumping some of my pictures
>>10700885Why do girls always think I want to take pictures from the front?
>>10700888I don't mind it since I'm a tits man, but some will twist a bit to give you some profile.
>>10700861I'm pretty sure I found it at the Kinokuniya booth, so that's a little unforunate. You can still get it on the Kinokuniya store:https://united-states.kinokuniya.com/bw/9784863495821>At least Hen Da Ne sometimes has loli doujinshi even if they say they don't carry itdamn really? I checked their collection on sunday but wasn't able to find any.Also yeah I'd be love to meet up sometime next year since I'm probably going to Anime NYC again.
>>10700894Thank you! I was checking ebay and Amazon like a fool and despairing over the $100 price tag. It's going to look real good next to my Range Murata Futurelog book.>sundayThere's your problem. You really got to sift through their booth on Friday or Saturday for all the best stuff before it all runs out. I remember asking if the there were any Genshin doujinshi but they said it all sold out in the first hour of the dealer's room opening on Friday, for instance. This was another great find I got from them. I only really buy their porn as a last resort if I can't find anything else cool, though. It's overpriced as hell.Also did you see that one guy cosplaying as a member of the ALT (Anti-Lolicon Taskforce)? I thought that was pretty funny. If I had that Takamichi book I would have shown him it and ran the fuck away. >Also yeah I'd be love to meet up sometime next year since I'm probably going to Anime NYC again.I'll see you next year then! I'll definitely be lurking these threads still.
The amount of technical work that went into this one had me jaw-dropped. Equally impressive is that it lasts all day without recharging. My phone can't even do that anymore.
Touhou hijack, lol
Would you happen to have any pics of the Princess Connect crew? Or the DDLC girls? Also dump all of your Genshin cosplayers. >>10700905Tired of seeing male Touhou cosplayers. I'd like to think that one Chen kigurumi was a girl.
>>10700906Got yer Genshin right here
Surprisingly, there were not a lot of vtuber cosplays, most of which were Korone. This Ironmouse one is gorgeous however.
>>10700902No problem. And that looks like a nice find. Also.>next to my Range Murata Futurelog bookGood taste. I passed by the Anti-Lolicon Taskforce guy once, it certainly made me feel a little awkward. I did wonder how he would react if he saw me with the Takamichi bookAnyways, hope to see you next year!
>tfw people took pics of me and my pal dressed as chihiro and chiaki on friday but we never asked for any socials and never took any selfies together so we'll never see pics of those cosplaysluckily I was smarter the second day and at least got the socials of somebody who took a pic of me, but I doubt we'll see anything unless somebody took something sneaky or decides to upload it to instagram
>>10700885>>10700887>>10700889>>10700892>>10700895>>10700896>>10700897>>10700899>>10700901>>10700909>>10700908>>10700913>>10700916>>10700918Can't wait for these mask mandates to be over and stop ruining cosplays.
>>10700931I know the feeling, anon. I made the same mistake and now I have no cosplay pics to remember the weekend by.I'm constantly scouring twitter and instagram's animenyc hashtag though, I'll post here if I see any pics of chihiro and chiaki and maybe it'll be you and your friend.
>Wear an amongus outfit for 30 minutes>Receive more attention in my life than I know what to do withIs this what its like to be a celebrity?
>>10700892She did not want her photo taken, lmao
>>10700986I asked, and she said yes. I'm not a mind reader.
>>10700993"Yeah sure!" and "....yeah...." hit different
>>10700942Actually, as it turns out one of my pals snapped a pic and I somehow didn't remember! If I get permission I'll share it here for posterity.
So due to Friday waiting hours on end to get in, I got sick and couldn’t attend the con at all for the remember of the days. Is there a way to get a refund?
>>10701036Sure. But hey, at least you've got something now. I wish I went with friends so I could've asked someone to take pictures for me.>>10700977It's an addictive feeling, isnt it? I didn't realize how powerful it would feel. I only expected to do it this one time but I'm pretty sure I'm going to do it again next year now.>>10701042Oh hey, I saw you post about this on twitter while scouring the hashtag. Good luck anon, that's some bullshit.Honestly though I feel like it's unlikely because I heard another story about how someone only had a Friday pass but couldn't get in until almost 7 so they paid for basically nothing. ANYC never gave them a refund either. Good luck though.
>>10701042You should call your bank and let them know what’s up. Unless you want to wait for months for a refund, or a “rollover” pass” your best bet is to call the bank
>>10701077What was your outfit, I may have snapped a pic or seen it in passing?
>>10701090I cosplayed pic related. Thanks anon.
>>10701124Where you at the fate photoshoot?Because there is a Oberon that looks like that
>>10701138Yes I was, and that was me! I thought that I'd have seen myself in those pictures at the very least, especially with all the photographers that were there. I've yet to see myself in any though, or many at all. The few I did see though were mostly the Sabers, Ibarakis and other girls.
>>10701146Snagged this, look at the #anyc2021tag and it's in the first few results on IG
>>10701148Holy shit, thanks anon! I just saw it too, it was hilariously embarrassingly easy. I only searched through the #animenyc and #animenyc2021, I never thought to search that.Thanks again, I owe you my life.
>>10701153Np, anon, u just wish I ran into you and took a proper pic
Did anyone come to the SMT/persona meetup?
Did anyone go to the SBB afterparty? Was it any good?
>>10701156I appreciate you all the same. But hey, if I do run into you next year and you help me take a proper picture, I'd be glad to return the favor with lunch or something.
>>10700746There was a pretty good Kiryu Sento walking around Saturday, I wonder if they’re the same person
me and this rei cosplayer had a blast taking photos.
>>10701159I was the (sole) akihiko, and I completely forgot all the akihiko poses unfortunately. I think I talked to the Demonica-armor-bro briefly
>>10694673>>10701272Ayy that was meFor my first helmet ever I think I did a pretty good job.
I been to a cosplay meetup but I can't find any photos online of it what do I do?
>>10701287I always wanted to cosplay as a Demonica soldier but I'm terrified it would turn out like this.I'd only ever bother if I somehow became rich and hired professional costume makers to tailor the suit specifically towards my dimensions and with suitable materials.
>>10701315Ouch lolI mean it turned out pretty well I think this is a you problem. Most people have been fans of it irl and online?
you know the thing i hate most is when i ask people to take pics of me and someone else and they take the most blandest picture ever even when i direct them to. its like damn, i know i could do better
>>10700933Wdym? It made some people much more attractive.
>>10700977Ohey were you the pair? I should have snagged a pic of you, I didn't realize what you were while next to you.
>>10700986>skinny asian girl #49264 upset a tall white muscular guy isn't the one asking for picsColor me surprised. May as well have not bothered cosplaying and stay as an IG cosplayer.
>>10701301Best thing you can do is check the hashtags and check their group linkAlso why did this turn into a thinly veiled women hate thread as soon as the con ended? Hope to christ I didn't meet any of you faggots.
>>10701438you missed the>unironic pedos in threadi'm not surprised, just disappointed
>>10701438if you'd met us you'd have a black eye
>>10701454I just don't understand why the thread got immediately so degenerate/cunty Toki bro and the two others are the ones that were about the con at least.
>>10701456I'm not a 12 year old girl so I think I'd be safe around you.
>>10701454>unironic pedos in threadWhat? Where?
>>10701458I'd shake you upside down like a pinata
>>10701418Was the black crewmate but I don't know who red was.
>>10701438It's just incels being buttmad that hot costumed women barely gave them the time of day instead of stampeding past each other to worship their dick like they fantasized The same people who would compliment women hoping to get something out of it then turn around and call them an ugly bitch when they don't get the reply they wanted
>>10701542I just wanted a picture.
>>10701315His outfit is fine for a first time. Don't be a faggot and put down others just because they're new to cosplay. Besides, if you're so afraid of making your own props, don't be a bitch and just make the outfit, there are tons of tutorials online. You'll get better if you keep making props.
>>10701668I'd rather just hire someone.
>>10701735Christ you're a faggot.
>>10701756Don't be bitter because professionals are better at their craft than you'll ever be.
>>10701438>>10701542>thinly veiled women hate thread as soon as the con ended>incelsTake your meds, no one was attacking women. It was literally just a couple of people pointing out how some cosplayers can be bitchy about who they let take pictures. If you're getting defensive about the few posts here, then you're most likely part of the problem.
