The Anime Con Survival Guide by ryuuza-art The Anime Con Survival Guide by ryuuza-art
Download for full-view!
Had to abbreviate because the full title wouldn't fit. :XD:

Should have uploaded this ages ago! This is the full print version of the mini "con bestiary" strips I did last year and made its debut at Amecon 2010.

18"x12" prints are available for 5/$8 plus shipping.
Also, individual postcards of each panel (except the J-Rocker bit at the end) are available at 1/$1.50 each.
Note me if you're interested for now. I'll be posting details in my journal later on. :)

Probably won't ring true for all, but the part about photos was based on a couple of people I've seen at UK anime cons. They'd taken their suit heads off and were quite clearly hot and bothered, but people were still coming up an asking for photos to be taken. D:

Very informative, I have yet to go to a convention... (silly education getting in the way, but what do we need that for... oh yeah... :O)

When I finally take that daring step I'll be sure to cling to your guide for dear life! (and try not to dress up as a fangirl favourite!) My deepest fear is being mauled to death for actually liking english dubs...

If I ever pluck up the courage/finance to go then I'm the Boy who looks like the Girl from Redline, just please don't ask if it's a wig... :dead:

Haha I'm the same with English dubs. As long as the voice acting is good, the language doesn't matter! :XD:

I'm sure you'll be fine when you go to your first con. Most people at the ones I go to are really friendly and you get to know people quite quickly. :)

Haha I'm easily distracted and have bad eyesight, so subs are really hard for me, in the end though it's as you said, the voice acting is what matters. :)

I'm gonna try and save up for a con soon, I really need to experience it, it'll be fun to mingle with people who share the same passion, rather than being the odd one in a group of fine-art students... :O

Thank you very much for the watch! (I'll put that here rather than spamming your messege box :XD:)

I love Sir Attenborough at the bottom, he could probably do a documentary on wild Pokemon! :)

This made my day. I went to a con not to long ago dressed as Link, and I can tell you that I can probly pick out one or more people for each of these.... "species". I was attacked by so many fangirls....

lol this is SO TRUE!! :XD:

...well, not all J-Rockers dress like Visual-kei
(i.e. B'z, Southern All Stars, Spitz) ^^;

For me, Visual-kei seems more popular in outside of japan :hmm:

:iconryuuza-art:
ryuuza-art Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011
No, I'm fully aware of that (I actually like B'z), but it just seemed to roll off the tongue better than "great crested visual kei performer/ musician". :XD:

I know what you mean as well, though I've never quite understood why that is beyond the whole "it's Japanese so it's better" thing. :lol:

THIS... FOREVER. I'm usually a normal congoer (not cosplaying) and where I live the species that most populate cons are an annoying bastard child cluster of Japanophile kawaii desu fangirls that sometimes are even malodorants :l... but lol everything is so true, also with the bondage-fetish poser goths xD

Aw man, I certainly don't envy you!:XD:
Most of the congoers I know here are pretty cool thankfully, I rarely come across anyone who's annoying or creepy.

Thanks though, I'm glad you like it!

Lucky XDDD Where are you from?

I've cosplayed toon Link sometimes and twice was I asked to be hugged by the aforementionred bastard child clusterfuck kind and OH GOD THE AGONY. :L

Haha, I cosplay OoT Link and have managed to avoid drama so far. I imagine my time will come. lol:
I'm near Birmingham in the UK. Aside from the big Expos, our cons are usually just big social events where we all know each other (about 1500 people max).
