axe event

Hello! Are you going to Anime Expo 2017 and like Voltron Legendary Defender? 

Then I hope you find me wandering around and say, “Hi!” because I have these 1.5 inch stickers to hand out! I’ll be giving them to artists in the alley, cosplayers, and anyone who wants one! Can’t wait to see y’all there!

(also please help signal boost so more peeps can know)

[From people who were at the AX event] :FLCL

 - Both seasons 2 and 3 are separate

 -The show will have different episode directors


-The Pillows are returning for the soundtrack


-Also Production I.G’s Ishikawa and studio Bones president agreed when they said new FLCL feels like what if BONES and I.G worked together.

Programming Time!

So I realized that my stockpile is pretty abundant with door decs and bulletin board ideas, but I’ve never really covered any of the programs I’ve done! Even with repeats, I still have sooooo  many program ideas that I’ve done! So starting today, I’ll be listing a program that I’ve done, how I did it, what resources I needed, how successful it was, etc! Hopefully this will help those of you who are struggling with the programming aspect of being an RA! 

Here’s one that I’m doing again!

SCAVENGER HUNT: 

I’ve done this program quite a few times! The first two times I’ve done it was in a residence hall setting. It wasn’t too successful, and that could be because I had done it “Guys Vs. Girls”. (I had a co-ed floor at the time). Guys weren’t too interested, but I had a group of girls who were super game! I’m actually trying it again this time. I’m in an apartment setting this year and I was going to do it throughout the entire complex. (Last time I only did it for my floor). I had two separate lists of items and “missions” the guys and girls had to get or do. I made it a requirement that pictures be taken of each item/mission. This was easy because practically everyone has a camera on their phone or a digital camera to begin with. So here are my ready-to-go scavenger hunt lists!

HTTYD gang Summer Olympics AU: what sport/event do you think each person would compete in?

Cheezit, I love you.

Astrid: Gymnastics

Astrid is a gymnast canonically! She does back handsprings and flips on top of a flying dragon. She’ll somersault and tumble while fighting others. It makes perfect sense for her to compete in the Olympics in artistic gymnastics. I imagine she is talented enough to win the all-around individual, though I imagine she is very remarkable on balance beam.

Other events she could be good at: fencing, judo, taekwondo, volleyball, individual diving, and trampoline.

Snotlout: Rugby

Though he sometimes is an individual who doesn’t work well in a team, I do think he would extraordinarily enjoy this team sport. Snotlout would love the dramatic combination of tackling, kicking, and running with a ball to the other side. I can just imagine him charging down the field, ball tucked under arm.

Other events he could be good at: freestyle wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling, hockey, water polo, and boxing.

Ruffnut and Tuffnut: Badminton

Mixed gender doubles badminton would be their sport. I imagine that Ruffnut and Tuffnut, being as close of siblings as they are, would want to compete together in the Olympics. It also just seems like the sort of sport that they would entertain themselves with, for whatever reason. It’s hard for me to find the exact words except to say, “It’s them.” And man oh man, they would be able to whack that birdie hard.

Other events they could be good at: synchronized swimming, table tennis, beach volleyball, and freestyle wrestling.

Fishlegs: Equestrian Dressage

Equestrian dressage, for people who may be unfamiliar, is an event in which horse and rider work through some pre-planned, intricate moves. The horse, in a way, “dances” to the music through complicated steps, demonstrating good rider-horse communication, cooperation, and control. 

Fishlegs would not have a dragon in a modern AU, but I can easily imagine him falling in love with horses and getting some fun riding this way. But Fishlegs has never been interested in fast speeds; canonically, Meatlug is the slowest dragon. However, he rides with great love for intricacy and moves. In a world where Fishlegs rides a horse, he would adore an event that allows him to forge close communication and control with his horse, and be artistic with his riding at the same time!

Other events he could be good at: table tennis, badminton, and shot put.

Hiccup: Equestrian jumping

Like Fishlegs, I imagine Hiccup teaming with Toothless the horse for the Olympics. While Hiccup does have a flair for tricks, it’s also embedded in a desire to go fast and dramatically. He could be good at eventing, but I think that jumping would get that adrenaline rushing exactly the way Hiccup likes it. Just like Toothless is the fastest dragon in canon world, I imagine Toothless is one fast and wild of a jumper as a horse in the Olympics.

Other events he could be good at: equestrian eventing, archery, and road cycling.

Heather: Fencing

Heather always has an excited, intense expression when she pulls out her double-headed axe in Race to the Edge. While there is no double-headed axe event in the Olympics, she could find a similar competitive thrill with fencing.

Other events she could be good at: equestrian jumping, football/soccer, rugby, individuals tennis, and individuals diving.

Will be at AX this year! (July 2nd ~5th)

Exhibitor booth 421
(w. soundlesswind, kissai, lia, yooani)

Here is an inventory of what I will have! (And maybe some miscellaneous things depending on how heavy my luggage is…!)

First time attending a con in the US so very excited!
Come by and have a chat if you can! :)

at the ax fgo event

the NA team is like… 3 people total… and it really shows jiowaerjoirjawere.

Hopefully when the money flows in they’ll hire a proof reader…that’s so sad to say lmao.. 

well… knowing that.. it’s really good for just 3 people but wadda hell.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any advice for people going to AX for the first time?

1. Resign yourself to death.

2. Sun protection. Lines, gatherings, and most food options (not to mention getting to your hotel) require going outside. That sun is BRUTAL and it’s light outside until past 8 pm. UV cut parasol, sunblock make-up, etc. Not just your face, mind your shoulders and extremities. .hack// cosplayers back in the day had notoriously bad AX sunburns in the pattern of their body paint.

3. Line for things. Main events, get there 2-4 hours early. Your line may be in the sun. See note 1 and 2. Even panels can have 2 hours lines. Just consider that AX has over 80k people, and maybe 1-200 can fit in the average panel room. If you’re not sure when to line, swing by the room starting at 3 hours early. If no one or 1-2 people are there, give it 30 minutes to do something else, then come back. Once there are about 10 people there, consider getting in line since a lot of people use that strategy. Be sure to have a cold drink on hand before lining. Make friends with the people around you in line. 

3b. On the note of Main events, AX is super weird and tickets several main events. You have to buy a separate ticket for the concerts, masquerade, and a few other events. You also need to line to get a ticket for guest autograph sessions, though they’re free if you can get one. Check the site for details on those.

4. The show floor is like nothing you might be used to from normal cons. The closest I can equate it to is Super Comic City in Tokyo, aka Fujoshi Hell. Even by Sunday we were still scrambling to finish seeing everything. The Artist’s Alley is in the back and it is also enormous. Budget more time than you could possibly imagine needing. I’m still not sure how I got roped into playing ridiculous dating sims, but it happened.

5. Booths. There is an entire event schedule that is not posted on any official AX site. That’s because many major booths are run by companies (Aniplex, Viz, GoodSmile, Voltage, Crunchyroll, etc) and they each have their own schedule of events and activities. For example, I’m working with Bushiroad for the Attack on Titan expansion of the Weiß Schwarz card game. There are 5 AoT booth events across the weekend, but to find out information for that, you’ve gotta be watching their fb page. There’s a ton of stuff like that. PRE PLANNING IS KEY! 

6. Re: Planning. Don’t be afraid to ditch your carefully devised schedule to go do something that looks fun. Seriously. Wing that shit and have some fun.

7. If you’re cosplaying, please see notes 1 and 2, then check here for cosplay gathering information. AX Cosplay gatherings tend to be HUGE so it can be fun just to spectate as well (as long as 1 and 2 are accounted for) Most link to fb event pages. It’s not a bad idea to make some friends with the people you’ll be meeting! 

8. Budget a ton for food and bring snacks if possible. The LACC area is awful for food. Even with the food trucks, expect to pay at least $12 per meal. For reference, Smash Burger hikes up their basic combos to $14+ during events. It sucks, so plan accordingly. 

9. But seriously, have fun. AX can be overwhelming, but on the bright side there is always something to do. Just be sure to take care of your basic needs and you shall ride Eternal. Shiny, and chrome.
