I might be getting three copies (one for myself, and two for friends who will not be able to make AX)... is that okay? I'll probably be coming in early on Day 1 since I have Premier.

Thanks!

Will you guys be there on Saturday-Monday as well, or only Friday?

Hey my cousin and I are attending AX all four days and are planning to go as Nurse (me) and "Casual Hisao" (my cousin). "Casual Hisao" is just Hisao's sweater vest outfit, but we have both agreed that the sweater vest is the source of all his lady attracting power, and therefore, is worth paying homage to. We'll definitely try to make it to the gathering on day 3. Hope to see you there!

Went and got a copy of the art book so I could get signatures. Said hello, but was too "deer in the head lights" to really say anything, which was too bad. I liked seeing a face to the people I have read about on here however. I missed one signature do to Suriko not being at the booth so I will have to try again Sunday.

If nothing else, I'll wager you did better than the guy standing next to me who announced to weee, "Thank you for giving me the opportunity to masturbate to cripple porn!"

Suriko, I wish I could have had the opportunity to meet you today (regrettably I only had a ticket for Saturday), but more importantly, I hope you're feeling better. For the time being, can we just pretend that I met you, shook your hand, and told you what a righteous dude I think you are? Let's do that.

True. I was just un-talkative and un-enthusiastic not cringe worthy. Although I suspect who ever said that was attempting to be funny. In the right context and as a story to tell he even succeeded.

Me too, Christ. Usually I have a huge mouth but I was so jittery just to look at the artists and I could hear my mouth go "asdfsafsdfsdfsdffdfasdf." Bah, excuse me as I roll my face on my desk.

Just visited the table and picked up my book, so cool to see you guys! Had to elbow my way through a mass of KS cosplay just to get to the booth. Missed Suriko though, wanted to say hi and thanks for both your work on the game and the PA forums stylesheet.

I know those feels, bros. I went up there, sadly didn't see any KS cosplayers, and proceeded to make a feel of myself. I came back several times to try and get signatures from everyone there (I got five signatures! Woohoo!), but each time I felt more and more awkward.

Finally opened up and asked the lead guy some legit questions, and bought a second copy for my friend back home. Felt really cool to meet the guys/girls responsible for such strong feels.

I'm so ticked at myself for not asking for autographs.
That didn't even come to mind when I was there.
Oh well, it was still cool to see everyone there.

Isn't that funny how we feel that way? I was forcing myself to not keep coming back to their table, and even then I ended up kind of lingering in the vicinity more than once. Granted, I had an excuse (I was waiting for Raemz to finish my commission piece), but I still felt awkward about it, like I was bugging them or stalking or something. And yet, seeing them was the entire reason I went to AX.

Hopefully they were pleased to get fans rather than bothered by us socially maladjusted shut-ins. :lol:

Still in the US, so I can't spend too long here and make a long post, so I'll just say thank you to all the people that visited Doomfest, VCR, Gebyy, Weee and I, and a big sorry to those that I missed when I was moving around the con. Some of the other guys showed me some photos and everyone looked really great.

WAH!!! I forgot about this thread, I showed up but I posted in the cosplay thread because I was supposed to be cosplaying... I was the weirdo who kept walking past the tables with a backpack and pins on his sleeve. I was always wearing a black shirt and drinking some kind of water/gatorade... on days 2, 3, and 4 I was wearing a sailor moon knit cap.
I was drawn to this for a reason, the name I picked was for a reason deeper than I can actually think of... Yamaku is not just a fantasy to me.

You sir where very hard to find. Sorry I missed you but seeing as you came so far for the the convention its better you wandered around to enjoy the whole thing anyway. Perhaps I ran into you and didn't know it.
