neiul wrote:heyy guys, complete newb here - first time at any proper movie/comics/media/anime/whatever convention. So I was wondering about a few things.
1) How big are the queues with a buy-on-the-day regular entry ticket compared to with a book-in -advance early entry ticket?
2) Is cosplaying recommended? What sort of proportion of people do it? Will I feel under-dressed in plain clothes while surrounded by demons and zombies and Final Fantasy characters? If I were to cosplay it would be as L because his costume is pretty damn straightforward, but I've never tried it before. Also, saturday or sunday? [EDIT: to clarify; cosplay on saturday or sunday, I'm going for the whole weekend but I dun wanna be a smelly sod n_n]
3) I can't waiiit!
Sorry if I sound like an insecure whiny kid who is only asking questions that have been answered a bajillion times and everyone is sick of or whatever n_n
I'm also new, but being around the forums and knowing people who go really does help.
1) The queues are immense.
The first queue is for those buying early entry and general entry on the day.
The second queue, to collect wristbands, is split into 3 lines; -Advance Early Entry, -Early Entry, -General Entry.
From 9:00, the AEE queue will be allowed in. Once this has cleared, the EE queue will be allowed in. Then from 11:00 the General Entry queue will be allowed in.
If you buy the ticket online, you bypass the first queue.
2) Cosplay if you want to. There will be enough people going that you won't look odd without it. You hit the nail there with L, he is always the character people recommend to beginners. If you want to be in more photos, and more publicity, go on Saturday. You may also meet me, and i'm completely mad, but isn't everybody?
If you want to buy shopping, or whatever, go on Sunday, as it is less crowded.
Edit; Both days?
Okay, most people going both days normally do a different cosplay on each day. Some people cosplay as the same character both days, though, so you could do that.
If you only wanna cosplay one day, do it Saturday, for the photos and stuff.
Hope to see you there
