Introduce Yourself!

Talk about anything not related to the festival here (e.g. introduce yourself, chat about anime, manga, video games and other Japanese cultural things).

Hey, it's Jess here xD
Codenames include CynicalEmoKid or JessikaJigsaw.
Currently 14 years old this'll be my first convention.
Planning to visit Japan from October 9th to Oct. 15th
I tend to like gaming more than anime and I'm currently addicted to both Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy.
I'll probably be cosplaying as either Yuffie (FF7) or Tifa (FF7)
:D

Hello and welcome to everyone who has introduced themselves here so far!

Sorry that it's a bit quiet here at the moment. The Doki Doki team are busy organising the festival and we should hopefully have some more news to post soon. We should also be starting our main promotional campaign for the festival soon, which will hopefully liven this place up a bit! ^_^

Never did introduce ourselves.

We are part of the Doki Doki team also, we have been interested in Anime and Manga for a very long time, one of us remembers series in Japan such as Nadia The Secret of Bluewater and Future Boy Conan in the 80's while the other remembers that wonderful time in the 90's where anime suddenly came to these shores by dual bought VHS tapes (subtitled films and dubbed films were sold seperately back then) Akira was always one of the first on that list.

We've been to Japan many times, one of us is from there, and we have experienced Japan at both it's most modern and most traditional. If you've never been email us and we'll give you many places to visit in both Tokyo and Kyoto.

We run Tokyo15 (usedto be in Afflecks but recently only on line and at conventions) we'll be bringing experience of the scene to the Festival and hopefully make it the best Japanese Festival around.

Higurashi!♥
I really want to make/get a Shion cosplay sometime :3

I will probably be cosplaying Akemi Homura from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica for DokiDoki.
Some of my fav animes; Mai HiME, Deadman Wonderland, Higurashi, Elfen Lied, Madoka, Angel Beats!, Kanon, Black Lagoon...probably more, but mind has gone blank... My other than anime loves are dreams, drawing, reading, writing stories(but being too lazy to get them written down properly!!), CATS, psychology&philosophy, myths and history~
I am going to Japan in August ! Half for voluntary work and half holiday~ ^w^

Hello, I'm Refia! My real name is Rheanne, and this is my first con, so I'm really excited!
I'm coming with my best friend, my boyfriend and my brother (hey we need some one to drive us there! Haha) and I think I'll be cosplaying as the female trainer from Pokémon Black&White!

My and my best friend are both into Japanese culture and have always wanted to visit Japan, and my best friend is a real fangirl for anime, and she has me watching them too, though I'm not a super fan, I still enjoy to watch it, and I love the Studio Ghibli films! However in prep for this con I've been watching tons of anime so I can fan girl with her!

My interests other than Japan and anime, would be disney (old disney, none of this high school music/hannah montana bogus!), pokémon, paris, games, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, cute things, dressing up (pretty much your typical girl, ha!) and psychology.

Also, for anyone who may know, will there be any con merchandise (like from the actual con with the name on, not what the traders will be selling) as I want to be able to have some things, other than the ticket, to keep and collect of my experience? :)

Hi Refia!

Regarding merchandise at the festival, early-bird ticket purchasers will receive a tote bag and pin badge featuring the festival's mascot. I'm not sure if we'll be producing any merchandise to sell at the event -- I'll ask another one of the organisers about it.

Happosai, thank you! I'm glad I'm getting an early bird ticket then, I just wanted to know as I often feature tickets and random things from concerts and events I go to on my wall, and I just wanted to know that I'd have something of this for my experience!

Thanks so much, I can't wait to attend!
