Any Dreams About Animazement?

Postby HeartlessKailynn » Thu Jan 17, 2013 5:06 pm

Has anybody else been so excited for Animazement that they've been having dreams about it?

I had a strange one last night that I was visiting my dad in Mississippi and that a lot of my family members were over. It was Wednesday and we were just about to go to the convention, but in my dream Animazement was being held in Memphis, TN. So we drove up there on Wednesday night and we ended up in the convention center but it looked like a very desolate airport. And then something disturbed my dream and I drifted off into other thoughts.

Apparently I'm very confused about how Animazement works and where it even is. :|

I can't possibly be the only one having convention dreams right? :mrgreen:

Oh man, I have those a lot, especially nearing the convention! When I sell at the Artist Alley I'm always having dreams where the con is here and I have nothing to sell, or I'm super not prepared or something!

I'm not the only one? :shock: ...well I didn't think I was but it didn't cross my mind that others dreamt about it as well.

I've had a few but there was one that I had a few months ago that I remember the most of vividly (it was most likely a lucid dream):

The convention center was surrounded by a parking lot and the building itself looked like Walmart but with "ANIMAZEMENT" replacing the sign letters. The sky was a navy blue, almost pitch black but it was like the sun was out because there were no street lights but people could be seen like it was the middle of the day...and it was. Cosplayers were coming in from all directions, conversing amongst each other like they normally do but I couldn't tell where they were walking in from. It's like they just materialized when they set foot onto the parking lot. I figured the same thing happened to me because my dream started with me doing so. And the center was isolated; it was in the middle of no where. There was a single road that was just kind of there and it extended for miles in both directions. At this point, I'm alone and I'm wearing a cosplay for a Final Fantasy-esque character. It was like Cloud and Tidus put together.

So, I get inside and it was like the lobby and the Artist Alley merged together with a staircase. I don't know how to describe it. Maybe I'll draw it later. :P And everyone had to go up to an AA table to register. There was no pre-reg and the badges were $200. If you complained about this then the security guy standing beside the table shoved you down the staircase.

Alright, so I got my badge and make my own way down the stair case to the main hall. It was like SouthPoint Mall (in Durham) got torn down and Frankenstein'd onto the RRC...where AA is now. Yeah. And there are bathrooms all along one of the walls.

There's a lot more but I'll cut it there.

I have dreams about just walking downtown Raleigh (I'm from Raleigh so I'm there a lot even though I'm going to college in Greensboro) and finding out that Animazement's going on so I start flipping out and I'm like how could I forgett!?!?

Or I dream about things going wrong for various other reasons lol. I dunno why I only have stress dreams about AZ.

To fadedxxlovesong: I think the reason is since it's such a large convention, Murphy's Law just sounds all too plausible in our collective unconscious! XD

The only one I hated having was dreaming that I drove all the way there and forgot my cosplays! I called my Mom and begged her to meet me halfway with my suitcase so I wouldn't have to drive the entire way home and to Raleigh again. xD

I rarely remember my dreams, but I'm pretty sure that at least once I've had the "Oh no, I'm at Animazement and I don't have anything ready for Hell!" dream. This is followed by waking up to the "Oh no, Animazement is right around the corner and I don't have anything ready for Hell!" reality, which is also pretty scary.

Then, of course, there's the "Oh no, I'm at Animazement and not wearing any pants!" dream, but half of the attendees don't wear pants either, so that one's pretty anxiety free.

Phil, who will be forsaking pants for AZ 2013
I'm not sure what's going on here, but have you watched any of these Japaheeno guns-and-hooters cartoon movies?

You know me, Bob, I'm an old school kind of a guy, so I'll be going with the sailor fuku instead. That'll be horrifying, but not nearly as sanity destroying as yours truly rocking the Strike Witches cosplay. *shudder*

I have the same dream almost every year before AZ, that I either forgot something or something went terribly wrong during the con xDD I am just hoping this year for a drama free con and to just have fun and for my cosplays to turn out great!

Yes! Fortunately my dream is the reason why I'm going this year, actually.
Due to finances I thought it was impossible and I'd have to sit out another year, so I ignored Animazement discussions or any pictures pertaining to it.
However, in my dream I worked out transportation, money, and all the other little details conventions involve.
Once I woke up and realized how logically planned everything was in my dream I considered the possibility of going. Everything made sense!
I decided it was possible and I was going to go again!
There wasn't much excitement as much as there was math in my dream, though....

It's almost like your subconscious wanted you to attend this year, and was showing you how to go about it! That's a pretty smart subconscious you got there! XD

I'm pretty sure deep down I really wanted to go. People I knew were talking about it from time to time, since the convention is getting closer.

The odd part was I was planning the trip while I was already at Animazement in costume! Haha

I just had one a few days ago; I don't remember much of it, but apparently I had finished a cosplay I've recently started working on and I was doing a photoshoot. o.O

Usually dreams like that for me end up with me forgetting something important or something weird, so it took me by surprise. xD
Current cosplay lineup:
~Animal Crossing Human
~Niichan (Blue Exorcist)
~Little Sister (Bioshock)

Currently working on Sylveon from Pokemon.
