SpringFestNY 2013

Other than NYCC, I found another con that can be reached by NY subway. And it was snowing on Saturday.

SpringFestNY 2013 (March 16th&17th) is run by PAS (Poly Anime Society) and NYU-Poly. So it’s a small college-run con with a 25 dollar 2-day ticket (plus extra $3 of convenience charge when purchasing online)

I picked up my badge and received an orange plastic bag filled with a printed program guide and a pen.
I wonder if there is something about orange that means for this college and con.
The badge was orange, plastic bag was orange, and the restroom wall was orange.

And yes, they got the dealer’s room & artists alley both in one class room.

The building had  nice and large elevators bringing people up and down without waiting a minute.
At the 4th floor, there was an outdoor balcony where a few cosplayers went out to take their photos.
It was still snowing, but soon changed to rain later.

While I was wondering a hallway, a kind staff near cafeteria gave me information that a masquerade would begin at 3pm.
So I headed to another building across. And at there, attendees were told to wait almost for an hour.
Another cool moment of enjoying the delay.

Uncle Yo was the MC, and probably about 8-9 skits were performed mostly singing /lip syncing/dancing with Jpop songs.
After that, Sneko had a live concert with other maid cafe members.
So that wrapped up my Saturday experience at SpringFestNY.

Overall, SpringFestNY was a nice small con to go and relax~~~~
It’s definitely NOT crazy crowded like NYCC, so everything is calm, quiet and slow which I partly liked. ^_^
Next year, I hope to see more cosplayers filled up the NYU-Poly campus.

Lastly, here’s a very few shots of cosplayers I met on Saturday.
