Kick it. Are you kicking kerby's? I don't condone kicking kerby. He's fluffy. And pink. And stretchy. And makes some mean soup, have you seen that guy cook?

I suppose I should probably visit the other forums to figure out what panels to go to...but my plan is to show up early, and wing the panels. There's nothing that is super important to me, although...I would give a lot to go to a panel that had a working demo of FF13-3(the lightning-centric game) Speaking of, I'm cosplaying her, for my first time :D

No kicking Kirby!!! That would be mean, and hurt. I'm a nice person and you shouldnt hurt me! And btw I'm not a he. ;) (J/K I know you were talking about the character. Couldnt resist!)

Panels might not be the greatest places to sit and chat actually. I'll be in town Thursday-Monday, and I'm not familiar with the area at all. I'll pretty much be winging it from beginning till end (besides the concert). These meet and greets seem pretty cool, kinda want to find something like that for A-Kon.

Hello friends. I am a first time forum user but I have been going to ACen for five years. I usually just end up walking around alone so this year I decided to actually try and meeting some people. Novel idea I know.

How are the meet and greet and the late night?

I will be doing my Elk cosplay on friday and my Jun Watarase from happiness on Sat. This is my first time cross-dressing so I hope it goes well.

I've never been to the Official Forums Meet & Greet (though I'm hoping to rectify that this year), but the Late Night 21+ Meet & Greet is always a good time.

I plan on going to both this year I think, I mean while I'm out there I might as well stay for both.

The meet and greet is in the Hyatt right? Where do you usually park because that 13 dollar lost across from the con center doesn't sound fun.

The Forum Meet and Greet is at the Hyatt @ 7:30pm on the bottom floor behind the glass stairs. (More information in my signature if you need it.) - As far as parking- I dont know what to tell you to do really. I know there's a parking lot over by the Blue Line stop- which is just a bit of a walk to the convention center. I dont know if there are any rules about how long you can stay or how much it costs. Hope that little bit of info helps some! :)

yea the blue lot and the other are the only ones I know of, I was just hoping all you wise ACen alums might know a secret lol. Thanks though, any information is better than none.

There are 2 "lots", one "next to" the convention center, you access it by driving like you were going into the hyatt parking lot but you turn RIGHT instead of LEFT. The other mega-lot is behind the Doubletree/Embassy which can be accessed by heading down river road to Balmoral, and taking a Right near the Aloft and I'd suggest parking in the "Movico" section.

Hi all! Thought I would post something here instead of just being a shy creeper, haha. I am going with a group of friends again this year, but with most of them couples, meeting others (friends or otherwise), outside my current friends and friends of friends would be a nice change of pace. I can't think of anything else to say, darn you 4AM brain farts.

I have a great idea. I have heard a lot in here about there being a lot of sausage at these singles meet and greats. So here is the plan. We all have a fight to the near death. Until there are only as many men left standing as there are women.

We will fight only in one way. Bear knuckles, swords and bats with nails in them. Sure the winners will be bloodied but they will be the manliest of men.

Hi everyone. This will be my first anime con of any kind and first time in a cosplay. I wouldn't mind meeting other people aside from the couple of friends that I'm going with.

Hold on, where do I find "bear knuckles"? I mean, I've heard of knuckledusters and brass knuckles, but I've never heard of equiping bear claws for a fight. PETA will be outraged.

I have an idea that's probably better than violence: who's going to be at the convention on Friday and what times?

Some conventions actually have speed dating panels. Anybody ever been to something like that?

i haven't been to one myself.
at one point and time there was a thread on here about someone trying to run such a thing.however i recall if having the typical issue with an imbalance in gender interest.

Um no. The crystal ball is a dance.

If you look on the final programming schedule, there is a speed dating panel "Speed Dating 2 Electric Boogaloo! 18+" on Saturday @2:00 --- Narita A-B (Hyatt)
