I regret not being better prepared mentally when I went on stage for the hentai panel I thought of all this cool stuff to say when I was in the audience but couldn't think of anything witty when I got up there still I got to get paddled twice :content:

I do regret the dance running along side the hentai panel so I didn't have a lot of time to mix it up at the dance.

My biggest regret was getting all shy with photoshoots. I mean, some shots were nice, but the ones I was looking forward to seeing came out pretty bad and I was so flustered by the end of it. I also wish that I was able to enjoy the nights, but they were pretty dull by the end of the dances.

I also hated the fact that I missed most of the dance. I mean I was tired throughout the weekend and I had fun before hand, so I think it shouldn't matter. But, I mean I felt like I was dragging my friends around, and neglecting what they wanted to do. They also told me that that was never an issue and that I didn't need to worry because they liked wherever I went. I still feel bad. >.< I didn't hang out with all my friends that much, but it was quite alright with the ones I did.

Finally, I wish I bought coffee at the Starbucks I usually go to at the Sheraton instead of the other one. xD I don't know, it's just been a habit every year I go. It was different, because I didn't stay at a hotel this year.

There are more regrets, but that's all I can think of.

[quote=la_romanesque]FORGETTING MY #@%#^%@ing furry pants and NOT BEING ABLE TO WEAR MY CENTAUR!!!

This is a lesson: ALWAYS triple check your cosplay list. and the pile of fake fur may not have all the furry pieces you think it does.

AND losing the bon clay pin I bought and then discovering that I couldn't get another one because it was the last :'([/quote]


Did you manage to find your way to the shoot? I didnt see any awesome waist-up-Nel-cosplay there :(

And noted :p

I regretted not buying anything at AnimeBoston besides a second ticket, because my first was stolen/lost permanently >_>

-I miss not getting the chance to chase a Jill Valentine around as Nemesis.

- Not being able to hangout with the Black Lagoon crew like I wanted.

-Not getting Nobuo's autograph.

We are all the same when it comes to cosplay. Our motives may be different but in the end we all just want to play pretend.

I regret being so damn shy and not meeting enough people to befriend.

I also regret not going to the dance. I just can't stop thinking about how embarrassed I'd feel if I danced.

-Not taking cell pics of the awesome Zoro and Nico Robin cosplayers I saw.

-Not telling this Sailor Pluto cosplayer how amazing her cosplay was. I saw as she was going to the dance(I was leaving at the time) but I kept chickening out.

-Not bringing a camera Dx

Not going to the VGO Show or the ball.
Not doing my cosplay the right way.
Not buying anything in the dealers room,
not talking to enough of people, not taking
enough of pictures.
Not watching enough of Anime, or participating
in more panels or workshops.

I'm sick of the word "not."

I regret losing one of my nails. For multiple cosplay purposes, I wore some glue-on nails, and one of them fell off friday afternoon right before the Soul Eater photoshoot. I had been getting compliments on my nails all morning, so I couldnt really show them off after I lost one. But I guess it was okay when a Kid noticed it and started freaking out that my nails werent symmetrical.

My other regret would be not having enough time to see some friends during AB. I only ran into them if I was super lucky, or if they were in cosplay events.

Last regret, my voice. I had practiced before the con, but it was pretty inconsistent on stage. I'm just happy I had it on Sunday instead of losing it, but it still makes me cringe to listen to it.

[color:red]I regret not seeing ALL of VGO, we came too late and were denied entry to the room by security only to be let in an hour and a half later. I also regret not having a better camera, mine is an early model digital camera that does not record sound. So I have Silent Films right now. Bleh. OH! I also...REALLY regret not going to that Noodle shop up the street from the con! ;_; Sounds Cliche but I love their Ramen bowls and with trying to make it to all the panels and events I forgot to go this year!

I regret going on Sunday as well. Not because I didn't want to go to the con, but because I'm tired of it always being on a Sunday. I want to enjoy Easter with the family and I always have to chose. That year I chose to go, but it would still be nice to be at home relaxing. /sigh

I regret

- not taking enough pics
- not taking any pics of myself and my friend in costume
- not being more out going at the Starlight Ball
- arguing with my mom because she complains of nothing to do for 2 and a half days (let me clarify, she's not into anime, in fact she was pretty much just my way into the hotel and back home)
- not looking at more panels
- not buying more in the dealers room
- only wearing my costume for 1 day (those sandals were HARD to walk in!)
- not convincing my friend to come to the ball with me
- lastly I regret not exchanging phone numbers with a friend I saw at the con whom I hadn't seen in almost a year

other than all that the con was awesome as usual
I miss cons

I regret not having a camera to take pictures of all the wonderful cosplayers I saw and hugged.
And I regret not going to any panels and not having a lot of spending money on me. Seventy dollars was not enough! Dx

Oooh Man I regret SO much.

-I regret not really talking to other cosplayers doing naruto or getting a picture with any of them.(It was my first con and I was more embarrased to get a picture WITH someone than getting a picture OF someone.)
-I regret watching only 45 mins of the Masquerade after sitting in line for so long (I had to go home, it was a three hour drive back)
-Having my parents there period. I love them, but they didn't get it. And they constantly made fun of everything the whole time.
-Going without by friend. Thinking "OMG she whould LOVE this!"
-Not being able to get a picture of some amazing Organization XIII cosplayers because of dropping my camera and not being able to see because of my lack of pereferall vision. Once I found it the battery had fallen out so I had to shove it back in. By the time I got everything together, they were gone, never to be seen by my eyes again.
-Not wearing my mask alot of the time and failing to pose correctly for pictures because I was so confused.
-Not bringing my DS lol
-Not knowing that I was actually going to GO 2 days before saturday, and then having a wet Tobi mask for at least half of the whole day (It wouldn't dry, dammit! I even used a blow drier, and it magically became weta again 10 mins later just to pisss me off. I repeated that for like 2 hours untill I finally gave up.)
-Not having time to plan up another costume. (I didn't really like Naruto as much as I used to at the time, but two days notice isn't a enough time to prepare a KH cosplay from scratch.)

Don't get me wrong I had an AMAZING time, but theres so much I regrett not doing. I hope I can make up for it next year.

it makes me mad cause i didnt get numbers to like 4 people i made good friends with in the hot tub at the Hilton. :P they were really cool and i met them again at the dance. if you guys remember me, please let me know!! lol i was Rei and Mikuru.

i also.. like every year didnt take pics, BUT! it was my mom's first year going and she was so facinated by everyones costums. she took over 100 pictures :) yay mom. but this year she might not be coming, sadly. i really enjoyed her laughing and getting hugged by random anime characters :D

i regret not getting this one guy's business card.. he took like 3 pictures of me dressed as mikuru and he had a really legit camera set up.... *sigh*

-_- i regret going to opening ceremonies.... i was so stoked to bring my two brothers and mom there for their first time to a anime convention.. and after the ceremony was over they said sarcastically "what a way to start the day" :( i also regreat closing ceremonies too... it was NOTHING like last years, and it ended my AB'10 in a disapointed mood. meh.. i hate complaining!!!!!

other than that, i loved Anime Boston this year, and cant wait for next years!

Not bringing enough food to eat for Passover and losing my friends just as my cellphone died. I had to run around the Hynes for an hour looking for them, called security, and finally went back to the hostel to find them there. What a nightmare. Still, I'm going this year, with a charger and plenty of food!

I regret being a bumbling idiot when I went to get Tatum and Chris Smith's autographs. ._.; I was totally going to be so fun and nice and witty and all I could manage was, "HITHISISSOMETHINGIMADEPLEASESIGNIT?"

I also regret being too shy in general and not making any friends/getting numbers/facebooks. Le sigh.
