Well, I went to SpringHill Mall the other day and I went into FYE(wearing my shirt that had custom print of Rurouni Kenshin chracters all over it) and the manager said that they are having a huge anime thingy(he really did not know much about it) but it is going to be taking place around July 20something. He said that you can "dress up like your favorite character and win prizes" so I'm totally game for that. If anyone lives around the Dundee area, I think it would be worth a check.

It is the 27th of July (EDIT)

And it's an hour away from my house... [facepalm]
Why must all the gatherings be so far away?

I have a feeling my parents won't let me go so far away for something like this but we'll see what I can do...

If you live around Algonquin or Dundee you are pretty close. I live 15 min away from WI and it takes about 30 min or so for me to get there.

Well it came as fast as it went...I don't feel sorry for who didn't go because it was REALLY bad. Ugh...The cosplayers were just a bunch of badly ebayed Naruto cosplayers who completely bombed the Trivia...it was sooo bad. They complained that there was not any Naruto questions and that they only knew of Naruto and Death Note...that seriously angered me. Also I really would not have wanted any of the prizes because they were just a pick between Naruto/Bleach and Full Moon. Ack.


The only normal, good fans of anime was a girl in a Kon t-shirt and the One Piece cosplayers (including my friends as well)


Seriously! Who doesnt know Ken and Ryu of STREET FIGHTER!!?!?!?! GAHH!!! *am angry* Also the judges of the cosplay contest were completely biased. I talked to them and they were like, oh yeah...we hate Bleach. >.< But oh well.

I went to Gamestop and bought games instead of their horrible collection of DVD's

Lol, I was there too, not in cosplay though. Who were you cosplaying as? My friend was seriously angry when no one knew who Krillin was, it was one of the terribly easy trivia questions. We figured they were all a bunch of CN anime fans and thats why they knew nothing.
I believe the question was "Who is the Bald headed character with dots on his forehead from DBZ"
Someone actually said freiza XD anyway, there was no sale, thats the only reason I went. So i was hella unhappy

I was Ururu from Bleach. My friends and I were the first ones to go in the trivia and really...the prizes werent worth much. If I won, I would prob ask which one would cost more money to sell back to them. It was that bad. Ugh...And what was with the Ranma 1/2 questions!?!?! There was like 20 of them! And I really do not like Rumiko Takahashis work...T_T whoever wrote that trivia was completely biased. It seriously made me pissed that the Naruto group people did not even know the main character of Street Fighter...for the love of god. >.<

I was the Nami with the zoro. but yeah. what made me upset was the lack of One Piece questions. Considering that the series has been around since 1999 you would think, there would be at least one question. Ill admit I know nothing of Street Fighter except that the one person is named Ryu(spelling?).
Plus it proves that I know way too much random anime facts, lol.

lol, I don't know how I missed you guys, we were there shopping around for a bit, maybe we just didnt stay long enough or something. All I saw was a group of Naruto cosplayers(naruto cosplayers who apparently have never seen another anime) and some other people not in cosplay sprinkled amongst them. I was in my Sonic the Hedgehog shirt and FMA hat, my buddy was just wearing a black button up shirt. Sorry I missed you guys
