Reminder; Today's the day!
Hope you're all well rested and ready to explore this years Anime LA in sunny southern California!
Have a great and safe con guys
Yeah. My lanyard broke within 10 minutes of getting my badge because of the damn hole. I'm gonna just keep it on my purse this weekend.
I haven't been out yet today but last night the con felt weird. Like a mini Fanime. I was talking to a staff member last night and they said they had 8k pre reg for the con which is a crazy jump. Holding out for the same fun though. I'm gonna get into my Metal Slug costume and head out in a bit.
>Survey Corps Dance Corps at the Opening Ceremony
9pm raddison pool deck
Pic related, i kekked
>Maguma made an AMV using only Street Fighter V clips
Oh shit nigga what are you doing?
Pool is closed, dock is packed. Meet in the less packed and more seating room of the lobby. Look for me.
Even as someone who was directly affected by Mike's sleezy bullshit, just drop it. Newcon was successful this year, Mike, despite being a douche, clearly made money from it, it's not a surprise. We don't need to bring this shit back into the limelight because it won't matter, so drop it and enjoy your con.
Yooooo, anyone pick up an extra phone? You should probably check it's recent texts so you can potentially contact me
If I have any complaints about this year, it's only maps - I figured them out day 0 but I've been hearing people are having issues with the layout because half the rooms people are looking for are in the hotel...
Either way hope tomorrow (Today?) goes good yo.
I'll be one of these two today. I still can't decide.
Anyone got one of those question mark mystery boxes? Mine was pretty solid.
Grab bags being sold for $35 in the exhibit hall. You have a chance of winning a PS4 or something. My haul was pretty solid aside from a BEYMAX plushie cuz I hate BH6
Pic related is the box
>Walk all over the con
>Over hear a bunch of people wishing ALA would move back to the LAX Marriott
You party weebs are the worst type of people. Destroying shit and making yourselves look like retards. I hope more hotels make stricter rules next time. You guys really give anime and cosplay fans a bad reputation
>as many trannies as women
>One girl from /pol/ calling people cucks
This is actually exactly what I expected but still had fun. /k/ meetup was good too.
Also have fun trying to post with the hotels shit internet.
Yeah, she was pretty cool. We both helped a drunk person not fall over for about 10 minutes (the guy nearly fell on her more than once) and then we compared our digusting mixed race ancestory.
Cell phone catching on fire was a freak accident. Water damage is from hanging clothes on a fire sprinker. Woman on gurney is hot sauce related. No con damage related to partying. Don't stop the turn up.
>that feel when none of the girls there were dtf
>slept in a bed with friends internet friend last night
>pretty much cuddling
>she was too drunk to do anything
might be called a beta for not doing anything but i think the moralfag in me made the right choice since I hardly know her.
sadly my penis is crying though.
i havent read anything about this con and am probably gonna drop by for sunday.
anything i should do? anything neat to buy?
im not gonna ask if it's worth it because im dead set on going and $35 is nothing
Y'all niggas ready for round 2?
New bottle of Jameson for tonight :3
No probs man
Thanks for holding on to my phone
Shoes aren't mine though lol
Hey /cgl/, i'm thinking of going to my first con here in March. I don't really have anyone to go with yet (although i know there's this dude that's all about anime in my university group, so i might chat it up with him at some point) and i probably don't plan to cosplay, unless it's something super simple.
Anyone know what the expect as a first-timer? Thanks.
It's decently slow, but I expected that coming in. Double the tables plus higher than average ratio of cosplayers to casuals. The casual attendee came there to purchase things, vs a cosplayer that already spent a lot of money and can't carry around purchases all day.
Most people I know come to ALA to party, not to buy
Doesn't change the fact that the overwhelming majority of the time, sales are to non-cosplayers, people that are changed out for the day, or someone with a lackey. You being an exception doesn't make it any less of a pattern.
Fucking for two hours straight in our room
There is a seagull on my banner, #113. I'm cosplaying as Aranea from Homestuck today.
to whoever i aggressively kissed in the lobby of the radisson tonight. i'm real sorry man, i was real drunk and for some reason you kissing my girlfriend told my poor impulse control to do something stupid.
The radison is fucking scary man I swear to god it was built either as an American horror story: hotel style murder trap or to house a minotaur.
We had to make like ten left turns in a row to get to the party on Friday it was fucked up man. We took some stairs trying to leave and ended up on a floor with even older looking architecture with masking tape on all the doors.
I don't think I actually managed to leave yet, still waiting on the moment that I realize that reality is an illusion and I'm still stuck in those god damned halls.
The radison will haunt my dreams
You mean the booty
Had fun but the panels were complete crap for the most part. Will go again next year. tfw live like 15 minutes away from the convention center.
