New York Anime Festival. The long awaited arrival...is still pretty far off

NYAF! The New York Anime Festival, takes place in the Jacob K. Javits center in New York this September!! (September 25-27, 2009) Though it's still pretty far off and since I have nothing better to do, why not talk about the future event?

NYAF holds numerous panels, boasts a huge dealers room, and best of all the World Cosplay Summit, where winners get sent off to Japan to see just how good they can measure up against some real hardcore otaku fans.

Okay thats enough about NYAF (no thats not enough, there is certainly much more to type up about it but I am fairly lazy for being a bored person) Let's hear some opinions, facts, cheers, and planned cosplays from you ^^

JA MATA!!

wow this became more of a chat... ah what the heck XD lolz

I can't wait fer NYAF because it's actually the closest anime convention to me. Lucky me, I get to go back and forth each day X3 The only trifle I had with NYAF last year was the room where they held the masquerade. It was far to small! With such a large amount of ppl who go to NYAF I would have expected more room. If they don't fix that I'm gonna get pretty pissed cause with the amount of money that they are asking fer, anything less than perfect is unacceptable...well.. lets just say, somebody's gonna get hurt...I'm not saying who! but somebody...

Lolz anyhow with all the time I have, since NYAF is still a long way off, I'm working on my costumes as well. I don't participate in the costume contests or masquerades (yet) but the photo taking is always a plus fer me because I absolutely love getting attention X3

When I do get my costumes finalized, I'll post up who I'm going as ^^ that way if you see me you can say hi! And so I can give out free hugs X3

Cause seriously, who doesn't like it when cute girls solicit themselves?

That's extremely exciting. If go to this con than I'll go to a total of three cons a year. Which I've never done before. This includes I-CON, anineNEXT, and NYAF!!! They better have a ramen eating contest!!!

I might go as link again, but this time, I'll have my mom make the costume because she can make anything and it will always come out awesome!! cus she's a perfectionist. If you check out the gundam00 post, Lockon's costume was made by my mom....and yes the person playing Lockon is my brother. So yes, I will win the contest for best costume!!!! I WILL!!!!!!!!!

This is very exciting to me! I'm hoping to go to animeNEXT next year, and then maybe I can go to NYAF in September...my cousin lives in the city and would most likely be interested in attending. She could even wear her Princess Mononoke costume!!!! THREE CONS PER YEAR OMG. excitement!!

@ Maria

She made it. Duh! don't you remember the thing with the spear, and then how she was telling us about how no one knew who she was until two asian guys came up to her and were like, "Oh! Princess Mononoke! Can we take a picture with you?!?" I find it sad that so few people in New York on Halloween knew who Princes Mononoke is...

@Nina

I'll be sure to talk to her before I go to camp and see if she can go with us. My other cousin is also moving back from Colorado in August, so he'll probably come too. :):):)I'm very exited now...

I've known about NYAF for years now, but never went. I think it would be a good change of pace for me to attend that even though I have gone to AnimeNEXT. I usually keep my con-going to a maximum of two, but that is because of overall staying costs. I don't like leaving the con just to come back in the morning. I personally would only go as an attendee to see just what this con is like, though I was aware that they had a very popular maid cafe that I would likely visit more than once.

...

I've been browsing the site and holy snap they're going to have Yoshiyuki Tomino! That's like...legend! I think I may try to go to this for at least one day. So if anyone is planning on going, I'd be interested in knowing what your plan is.

@maria: You went to AnimeNEXT? Why didn't I see you? I was with Jim more times than not. o_o

I'm buying the tickets in August, and preparing a infamous "Free Hugs" sign (what's better than getting hugged by some cute cosplayer chicks) And luckly, it's a 15 minuet train ride for me XD

@ Nina lolz if you need help with finding out how to get there go to hopstop.com they give some really great directions. thats how i learned my way around ^^

lolz this years halloween parade im going as one of the Crazy Eights from Kill Bill. I saw one last year and now im hyped to go as one with my own gang X3

As to who i might be going as, im not sure yet... but since im going all three days...well i have these costumes planned, finished, and in progress: Medusa from Soul Eater. Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist. Komui from D.Gray Man. Dark Mousy from DNAngel. Badou or Heine from Dogs Bullets and Carnage.

those are the cosplay i may decide on fer the three days im going... again, im not sure which ones i wanna do...

lolz i find it funny how some ppl are so hyped about getting in three cons a year X3 i mean its not supposed to be funny... but still... i get in at least four. and if not a con i go to some major events every month. New York has its moments in otaku-dom. plus going away to Cali fer a month around con time helps a bit X3
