Oh! Before I took your photo, I screamed out, "B!" roughly three times as loudly as a could. Unfortunately, I'm terribly quiet. So then I gave up and just ran over. XD[/quote]

Oh I'm sorry, I probably wasn't paying attention :blush: [/quote]

No, honestly, I'm REALLY quiet. And sort of invisible.
Example: Once I sneaked into class (I was gone almost all day with the town-wide band playing at different schools) in my nice dress clothes, sat down, and nobody noticed. Not even my teacher, or the kid I sat next to.

The Masquerade line. Singing "I'll make a man out of you", as well as "Pokemon". Watari and Nabeshin rocked out with that line, and we love you for it.

ROCK ON!

I've got quite a few, but there's one that just takes the cake.

My friend Kate and I cosplayed as Axel and Roxas, and we were relaxing with the rest of the group we were with in the lobby at the Marriot when these two middle-aged maybe 50 year old women asked if they could have our picture. So the five of us posed: Ichigo scowled, Ed posed for alchemy, Lust got...lusty...and AKUROKU on the couch. And the grannies went wild saying "the kids will love it!"

Kate and I didn't have the heart (no pun intended) to tell them it was yaoi. That's why my head's down: I'm trying way too hard not to laugh.

Here's the photo

There was also:
- Getting my leg glomped by chibi Larxene
- Meeting "Roxel" ("You're Mom, you've got the hips")
- Having a 4-year old run up to me calling out "Assel! Assel!" because he couldn't say the "X"
- Making fun of our Ed's "antennae"
- Watching this LIVE in the Masq. Line
- Let's hear it for fanservice.

My favorite moments:

1. Delivering water to the people in the registration line on Friday night. (I was Miwako from Paradise Kiss--curly pink wig and blue-and-white dress.) I was called "God", "Jesus", and "Pink-haired bearer of liquidy goodness". ^^

2. Ditching the 18+ Dating Game in favor of instant ramen, a House rerun, and SLEEP.

3. Running around and performing various script- and microphone-related errands on Sunday morning for Cosplay Chess.

1. Sat. morning, saw an Aokiji cosplayer and ran to hug him. He was really happy and said, "Finally! My first hug of the con!"

2. Mike Sinterniklass at his panel, adoring a cute dog accompanied by a cosplayer on a scooter. "Awwwww! Cute puppy!"

3. A mother asking for my photo for her daughter in the dealers room when I was Vincent Valentine. There were so many mothers at this con! And they had an awesome time!

4. My friend took a photo of another mother cosplaying as Batwoman in purple at the food court when she was running away. But she came back so my friend can take a better photo of her. She was awesome.

5. Found a Shaun of the Dead cosplayer and his girlfriend as old skool Rainbow Bright. It was really late Sat. nite and neither of us had cameras but they hugged us. Yay!

6. Found a little Larxene cosplayer. She gave me and my friend hugs after we took her photo. Awwwwww! She was soooooo cute!!

7. My friend and I being really ADD in pre-reg line Thurs nite, kept reciting lines from Labyrinth and doing the Team Venture pose. We totally had really bad jitters then. Haha.

8. Masquerade, the cute little CardCaptor Sakura reciting Juliet lines onstage. Awwwwww! Soooo cute!!

9. Little kids cosplaying winned me over. Especially the little Naruto one who was really into character. He was stabbing the floor with a kunai all over the place.

10. Ok, embarrassing but a really funny moment I can never forget. A black ninja randomly walking too close behind me. When I turn around, I freaked out and ran to catch up with my friends. The ninja then quickly got behind me again but to the side a little and placed his claws with blue paint lightly on my shoulder. I freaked out again and totally ran to the front of my group. I was behind them to whole entire time so they didn't see this situation happening. When I told them about the ninja, they turned out and said, "What ninja?" He totally disappeared! Wuuuut?!?!

I have a second one. When I was waiting in the pre-reg line on Friday, I was dressed as Light, and this Mello decides to chase me and tackle me. I was tackled, glomped, chased and tortured, all in the pre-reg line. If anyone saw me then, or has pics of it, please message me! =)

Best Moments at Anime Boston? Hmmm...well I'd have to say they would be:

-Enjoying the epic-ness that was Line-Con on Friday night. Towards the final stretch, my friends broke out into song and got the whole hallway to join in on it.

-Being blinded by all the flashes to the camera's being used to take my picture 0.o

-The Pillows Concert...plain and simple ^^

-Awesome 80's (and the segment of Safety Dance Around The Ls!)
-Walking around for hours on Saturday night with Misa-Misa then running into who we were looking for as soon as we stand up from taking a break.
-GETTING ATTACKED: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y175/F ... IM0873.jpg
(video in profile)
-All the random Death Note stuff going on in the pre-reg line on Friday (like all the Ls attacking Light, and Mello stealing Matt!)

One of my favorite moments was during the hentai dubbing, possibly the funniest line I heard at the convention, "I'm gonna fist you up to the shoulder!" That line has stayed with me and I'm cracking up just writing about it.

Also, during that same part of the hentai dubbing, the two girls continuously made references to the X-hour wait in line for their AB badge.

I guess one of my favorite moments would have to be...

When I first put on Ace Ventura on Friday morning and I walked through the hotel lobby. Two of the hotels (as in, the actual hotel, not the convention) staff members suddenly shout "Hey! Jim Carrey!" which causes me to turn around and respond with "Bumblebee tuna!". The next thing I see is the two members just cracking up and one of them going "Yo, that dude looks like the guy!!". Great experience, and it got me pumped for the rest of the shenanigans (Yea, I said it) I would be pulling off as Ace for the rest of Friday.

1. My friends and I were waiting in the pre-reg line on Friday while one of our friends joined the Reg line. We realized that she -our friend in the reg. line- was seemingly getting farther ahead than us in her line. After much grumbling of:"If she gets her badge before we do...I'll kill her! D:" we realized that she still had to go down a whole other hallway and loop back. :P
2. My friend Haley was dressed as Misa on Friday and I was dressed as a generic Host Club customer. We headed over to the Manga Library as soon as it opened and sat down with the rest of our group to read a bit. The next time we looked up... our entire group had tired of waiting for us to finish our volumes and had abandoned us.
3. Dancing in the hallway across from the dealer's room on Friday night just for fun only to look up and see a good sized group of people applauding our para para dancing efforts. (The video ----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-g0qb-uC2ek )
4. "Hey Eileen! Put on your Mikuru apron so that you can dance the Hare Hare Yukai in costume!" I was then a cross between Host Club and SoS Brigade. :o Go school clubs! ^^
5. And finally: Cosplay Chess Light helping my friend -Misa- and I cross the street Friday evening as we were obviously suburbians who were not accustomed to having to cross very busy streets. (More like we chatted a bit as we waited for traffic to thin before dashing across behind him. xD)

That was definately a lot of fun. It was hard to try to not laugh during that picture.

I also have a few of my own:
-Yelling at people for calling me short while on the phone with Kate, our Roxas
-Almost losing my voice from yelling at people for calling me short
-Having my roomates almost kill me for making fun of my antenna
- Fanservice!

In reply to all those hilarious moments...
I loved Gin stripping! that was the best!
In reply to me getting tackled, also great!
L getting attacked by bleach characters was awesome!

I personaly didn't have that great a time this year as I did last. I don't know, but something made it less enjoyable. Maybe it was because I had such a short time actualy exploring the con. Who knows. Well anyway, to all you fabulous cosplayers that I saw, anyone who did fanservice, and all the awesome friends I made, that's what the convention was about! Thank you!

4) Not being recognised when I saw my school prinicple leading around my schools anime club.

5) Hugging a Hagi <3

[quote=Nashida][quote=tehponkey][quote=Nashida]I've got quite a few, but there's one that just takes the cake.

My friend Kate and I cosplayed as Axel and Roxas, and we were relaxing with the rest of the group we were with in the lobby at the Marriot when these two middle-aged maybe 50 year old women asked if they could have our picture. So the five of us posed: Ichigo scowled, Ed posed for alchemy, Lust got...lusty...and AKUROKU on the couch. And the grannies went wild saying "the kids will love it!"
Here's the photo

That was definately a lot of fun. It was hard to try to not laugh during that picture.

I also have a few of my own:
-Yelling at people for calling me short while on the phone with Kate, our Roxas
-Almost losing my voice from yelling at people for calling me short
-Having my roomates almost kill me for making fun of my antenna

I do what I can, and you loves me for it. Especially since it gets brought up everytime we see each other.

Best moment for me was...

The Risembool Ranger Panel! Huge sucess!

Seeing The Pillows in concert when they said thank you and a lot of people thought that was the end so most left but I stayed knowing they would come back out in a few minutes to do a their final last song which they did! ha!

Seeing Aaron Dismuke at his panel and getting a picture of him on my cell.

And when I was at the cosplay human chess and hearing that the Risembool Rangers won the game against the Miniskirt Army! WOOT!

Seeing my high school friends win second place in the Anime Trivia contest. A week later I found out it was announced during the school's morning announcements. I'm do proud of them!

My 10 favorite moments have to be:

1. Talking with a female Miles Edgeworth in a 5 hour registration line.
2. The "communal box of Cheez-its" while in line
3. Pretending to operate on someone for a picture (I was Dr. Stiles)
4. Watching Nerima Daikon Brothers for the first time and wondering "WTF is this and why can't I stop watching?"
5. Watching, then immediately buying, Shuffle and hearing somebody randomly yell "Come back kitty!" in between episodes
6. Listening to video game music in the dealers room
7. Watching Shin-chan at 1 in the morning
8. Being glomped at least 10 times in one day
9. The look on my mom's face when my dad bought her and my sister neko ears
10. Getting 10 mangas for $40

I was crossplaying as Sai in all of these and my most memorable moments that I will never forget are:

#1 In Cosplay Chess when I came out to replace Sasuke, Naruto yelled "why do you keep popping up like this, get lost" I was laughing so hard on the inside.

#2 When I was walking around random girls hugged me and said "OMG I LOVE SAI!!"

#3 Learning how to belly dance with Halibel. She was so much fun to hang out with.

#4 Sitting with Hikaru and Kaoru providing "fan service" during the Dating Game on Saturday.

#5 After Cosplay Chess, King Mickey hugged me

#6 An L crossplayer stared at my camera while she was going up and I was going down

#7 Gin stripping in the Masq. line, yes

#8 In the Masq. line playing Marco Polo with this girl through Picto-chat, she would write 'Marco'
and my friends cousin and I would yell "POLO!!"

Even though you were crossplaying, when we went to the dealers room, that man thought you were an actual boy, lololol!

You were wandering in the Dealers room somewhere, and i was looking at the anime posters when i saw a Terry Bogard (SNK Fatal Fury) cosplayer! Yays! I didn't get to say "Get Serious" or "Okay!" to her but, still i got a picture!

One of the funniest memories! XD

And! When we saw that Ken (Street Fighters)cosplayer, and i said to him, "Sureyoucan!" And he said, "yeah!" And we both laughed ^.^. Good times....
