Deb Aoki:
ny Anime festival is my last “travel to” Anime con for this year. Yaoi-con & APE are both local.

Deb Aoki:
thursday is gonna be “I’m gonna enjoy NYC away from javits center” day

Deb Aoki:
It kinda bums me out that all my trips to NYC lately are 75% spent in javits :-(

Deb Aoki:
I wonder if I can squeeze in a trip to MoMA tomorrow? I <3 NYC

Patz:
Horray for last minute packing. Just got all my stuff set for NYAF. Almost forgot my awesome Robotech New Generation shirt. XD

Patz:
I always have a hard time sleeping the night before travel. Ugh >_<

Reni Mimura:

The red-eye flight was a bit of a failure. Got about 2 hrs sleep -_-

Team #NYAF are all on our way to the Javits for set-up day.

Peter Tatara:
Cop just said there are 40,000 officers on the street this weekend because of the UN. Glad I’m running an even filled with kids with swords.

NYAF:
With the UN in session and cops on the streets, cosplays are reminded to play nice. Let’s not have any international incidents.

Scott:
Just a reminder- NYAF is pronounced “New York Anime Fest”, not “nee-yaff”. ;-)
