Earlier today, I managed to secure a hotel roughly within a 3/4ths of a mile of the San Jose Convention Center on Friday, May 27th, 2011 for FanimeCon 2011. At $84 dollars a night for 3 nights, it will roughly be $270 for the hotel stay (including taxes, since it was better than the $600+ the Hotel De Anza was charging). So, with that taken care of, other than getting the train tickets for the Coast Starlight AMTRAK train on Friday morning, everything is in place. Below is what will be happening for me at FanimeCon 2011.
Friday: Day One
* Catch the 3:50 AM Coast Starlight (AMTRAK) from Chico, California down to Sacramento, California (2 Hours: arrival in SAC at 6:25 AM)
*Catch the 7:00 AM Capitol Express (AMTRAK) from Sacramento down to San Jose, California (slightly over 3 hours: arrival by 10:30 AM)
*Catch Cab from AMTRAK/CALTRAIN station to San Jose Convention Center
*Get in line for FanimeCon 2011 at entrance
*Begin making rounds of Convention Center, taking cosplay photos and asking several cosplayers several questions related to the Cosplay Feature that I will be writing for AnimeVice.
*Attend some of the scheduled Gatherings until 4 PM, in which I must head to the hotel to check in.
*Check in at Arena Hotel by HP Pavilion (Shark Tank), return via cab to FanimeCon by 5 PM
*Attend the VOCALOID concert on Stage Zero, and then head over and meet with the VOCALOID gathering, which has agreed to be featured in my Cosplay article for AV.
*Make rounds of Convention, taking more photos, doing several interviews, and then look into events that evening and for Saturday.
*Return to Arena Hotel
Saturday: Day Two
*Head off for FanimeCon from Arena Hotel
*Attend some of the panels, take more cosplaying photos, and do several more interviews.
*Meet up with the POKEMON gathering, which like the VOCALOID group, has agreed to participate in my feature on Cosplaying (images and several members interviewed).
*Meet up with the K-ON! gathering, which like the VOCALOID and POKEMON gatherings, has agreed to participate in my feature on Cosplaying.
*Make rounds of Convention, doing more photos and enjoying the panels, events, and make way back to Arena Hotel by sundown (if no major events are not happening that night)
Sunday: Day Three
*Head off for FanimeCon to attend more gatherings and events.
*Make rounds of Convention, taking some more cosplay photos and perhaps another interview or two.
*Take some time to enjoy the Convention without running around with my camera...will look around and have fun.
*Return to Arena Hotel for last night.
Monday: Day Four
*Attend FanimeCon for 2-3 more hours to catch any of the remaining gatherings that are of interest, make one last round of Convention, and then return to hotel.
*Check out of hotel at noon (checkout time).
*Return to AMTRAK station (catch train to Sacramento)
*Call home, get ride to pick me up from the I Street Station in Sacramento 3 hours later
*Return home, rest for several hours, and begin writing my 3 to 4 page feature for AnimeVice on Cosplaying & Those Who Cosplay (complete with images, interviews, opinions, and thoughts/impressions from FanimeCon.
*Day After FanimeCon (Tuesday): Upload Cosplay/FanimeCon 2011 images onto DeviantArt and AnimeVice.
*One Week after FanimeCon: Upload story/article to AnimeVice for approval (needs approval of AV Staff)
After that, I have the KinToki-Con 2011 in Sacramento to look forward to June 16th to 18th in Sacramento. Will be doing Cosplay images and perhaps another article on Cosplay (smaller one, due to it being a smaller Con).
Well...that sums up my FanimeCon 2011 schedule...if you are attending FanimeCon 2011 and are in cosplay, just give me a ring! (PM or E-mail). I will take your pictures for free and upload them onto DeviantArt for you to download!
