Well, we've been disucssing in other threads about having a room party one of the nights of the convention. Right now we're shooting for a Thursday night (or maybe even multiple nights)

So everyone take across your ideas what you want to see in one.

I'd like to come, but I don't get there until Friday.

Ok, so Ototou, I have a feeling that our room has now been deemed party headquarters for Cosplay.com??

Where did you intend to have this party besides in a room?
A hotel suggestion might be a good idea

hehe our room has been taken over! I'm all for partying! Probably should just let people know at the con though...We'll be the fun party room...

Michi

I'm up for it. ^____^

Okay. Already getting a good response to this idea.

Noir is our Bartender.

And Darth is helping with supplies.

Don't worry Minako. I haven't forgotten you at all. I can't wait to see you and Noir team up at this.

minako chan
04-07-2003, 02:02 AM
I'll probably spill all the drinks in my own drunken stupidity...

btw-have we come up with a time and place?

Alaria
04-07-2003, 02:21 AM
this better be going late I'm gettin' there Thurs nite prob! ^_^

Studmaster
04-07-2003, 03:32 PM
Minako: The Party is going to be in my room in the Days Inn most likely, but maybe we could look into renting one the smaller conference rooms in that Hotel if the demand gets to be too much.

As for times. I'd say we start the party at 10 and end it around 2 - 3, so this answers your question too Alaria.

Lady
04-07-2003, 05:25 PM
Um...do these things involve loudness and people roaming around alot? Or will this just involve people going to one room and being quietly tucked away and drunk?*sweatdrops, for she's staying at the Day's Inn*

makio
04-07-2003, 06:57 PM
I'm requesting Friday off completely so I can fly in that Thursday night... I'd love to catch the party though. Hell, it'd be cool if there was one all 3 nights (Thurs/Fri/Sat)... though I'd assume it would be B.Y.O.L. & age checks if so. :devil:

DigitalCactus
04-07-2003, 08:53 PM
sweet... let me know too and I'll be there...!

Studmaster
04-08-2003, 11:57 PM
Bumping this up, to tell everyone I'm going to make some phonecalls tomorrow to Days Inn just in case we need that room, we'll have it on standby.

Mizuho
04-09-2003, 12:55 AM
Ahhhh, I'm over at the Hyatt! *Snaps fingers*

Studmaster
04-09-2003, 01:04 AM
Then come over Mizuho. Everyone is invited.

TheBrainUM
04-09-2003, 01:11 AM
I'm newish here can I come?

DigitalCactus
04-09-2003, 01:14 AM
is this party BYOB? what kind of music? just curious... If I go I probably wont be in costume..

Mizuho
04-09-2003, 02:14 AM
If I can make it, I'll be there! :D

Carmila
04-09-2003, 09:27 AM
I am so not up for a party in our room all three nights! Some of us have to get our beauty sleep you know! he he he

Question: If we have it in our room, what are we going to do with all of our luggage and stuff while everyone is in there? And who is going to help defray the costs of this entire shindig? (ok, now I am just sounding too old!!)

Just asking a few Qs!

It's definetely not going to be all 3 nights. I think we have enough rooms for others to have their own parties (and I think they will be other parties too)

Hmmmm...If we have it our room we would put our stuff in the closets and under the beds I think. As for costs, I'm hoping that our Otaku breathen are generous and contribute donations to the party. (May be wishful thinking, but sue me)

Carmila
04-09-2003, 11:20 AM
I would agree! It would be nice if others are willing to chip in (say bring something to drink to share, or chips, or something!)

Studmaster
04-09-2003, 11:24 AM
Oh yeah! Update!

I called the Days Inn. Seems like we can't rent out one of their conference rooms if we wanted to. There's a government convention in the Days Inn. So that's out.

They said to call Holiday Inn to see if one of their rooms are free, but I think that Otakorp has a virutal monopoly on that hotel.

Carmila
04-09-2003, 12:39 PM
Well, it looks like our room is it! Now how much would it be to upgrade to a suite, or could we possibly offload some of our gear into someone else's room just for the party so that nothing gets messed up/sat on/broken?

Note: I am not saying that anyone is going to do anything intentionally, however, when you have a room full of people and lots of stuff, something tends to happen by accident!

Darth Takeo
04-09-2003, 07:54 PM
Don't forget to lemme know when a supply list is created. Sky's the limit, BROTHER!!

makio
04-09-2003, 09:39 PM
Yeah, I'll try to bring what I can... music, food, videogames, whatever. :)

MrWonderfulToji
04-09-2003, 09:50 PM
hey studmaster!
Ill definately be at otakon, and I'll do my best to show up at this party!
but im 19... I dont drink though...
am I still allowed in??
I can bring some foodstuffs if I come... or DDR
*studmaster: you gotta see the new hookup. I combined my old ignition with a new madcatz... it plays SWEET, I got an A on a cata on a soft pad.. its great

DigitalCactus
04-09-2003, 11:03 PM
I'll bring chips n drinks. ^_^ I think it'd be good to put together a phone list so we can organize this better...

Who's room is the party going to be at? which hotel? Shucks.. I don't remember what hotel my cousin booked us for.. I know its walking distance from the convention centre.

PS. I'll be 22 by Otakon.. so eh hehe.. just letting you know... ladies ;^)

Romann
04-10-2003, 12:13 AM
I will be willing to make a donation to the party ^_^ It'd be wrong not to... As for the drinking thing, will there be a age check? I kinda dont wanna lose my BT liscense for serving underage folk ^.^; I'm also up for bringing extra supplies, just make a list of what's needed when it comes necessary :)

katchoo
04-10-2003, 02:07 AM
I agree a definite age check at the door. And we will definitely take donations or charge per cup..if you are drinking. And it is my policy to have snack and soda for people who don't drink.

If I'm feeling really generous I'll donate pizza to the party! ^_^

Carmila
04-10-2003, 03:52 PM
Age check is a must! I will not be responsable for serving alcohol to minors. I have always felt strongly about that!

Plus, there are many reasons to party, like birthdays so I am uber excited! I will help organize, however, I am not sure I can bring much considdering how much I am bringing up costume wise already. Not that much luggage space on the plane..... *sigh*

Studmaster
04-10-2003, 03:59 PM
I'm seriously thinking about getting a Suite for Thursday night, if enough people want to, and we could get enough cash for it.

Does anyone know what a Suite in the Hyatt across from the Convention Center will run for? I'm going to check.

Kas
04-10-2003, 06:05 PM
Damn.. So all this is going on Thursday right? I wish I could get up there on Thursday but we all ready reserved the room for Friday -sunday.. Oh well.. I still hope to party with some of you anyway.

Darth Takeo
04-10-2003, 07:42 PM
Ditto, a Thursday party date may present a conflict for me too. I suggest makin it Friday, or havin a 2nd party fri.. I volunteer to assist with a Suite if notified in advance

>Plus, there are many reasons to party, like birthdays so I am uber excited!

My birthday is August 12th, two days later...so, I'll be a few days short of the legal drinking age. Still, it'll be fun. I'll chip in for a suite if you can get one.

cyankirby
04-12-2003, 07:50 PM
I can bring some soda seeing that I will be old enough to drink but won't (don't like the taste of beer and such drinks) and some snack foods if needed. I can chip in for other things too.

DigitalCactus
04-13-2003, 11:53 AM
Ya I just remembered we reserved our room for Friday-Sunday also... ooh I just remembered.. my sister's Birthday is the 10th... must save money for present... anywho I can bring whatever you guys want me to bring... I'm not much on drinking but if there's booze we definatly need an age check.... Maybe I can be the bouncer...?

Arisa
04-13-2003, 02:30 PM
Will we not be allowed in the party if we're under 18 or 21? ;-;

makio
04-13-2003, 09:27 PM
The age check is just for drinks, and that's if there's liquor there. I don't know Baltimore liquor/alcohol laws, but usually you're not allowed to have it around minors in this kind of environment.


...however, this would be a good time to figure out whether or not to even bother with liquor. If there isn't alcohol, that's fine... but if there is, perhaps there should be a seperate room/party for it to keep from getting into any kind of trouble.

cyankirby
04-13-2003, 09:33 PM
That's a good idea. I think people can survive without alcohol and everyone will be able to attend.

lialia
04-13-2003, 10:27 PM
my friends bday is the weekend b4 and she hits the big 21.

i wont be 21 till nov, and im sure that i wont be partying or drinking illegally nono thats bad :angel:*whistles whilst looking innocent and crossing fingers* :devil:

It would be great if we could figure out whether or not there will be any alcohol... I think that there shouldnt be... especially if there will be heads driving to and from the party... I personally have no problem going all virgin, and I feel that it might be better and if not, safer ^_^

As for BoCo puffs( Baltimore county/city police) they are not one to mess with when it comes to alcohol...trigger happy ,billy club totin'...ahem. SO yeah... you know where I'm getting

DigitalCactus
04-14-2003, 12:04 AM
I think its best we not have booze... After all its Otakon guys. I think it's fairly unanimous.... or however you spell it. No alcohol. Is that ok with everyone? Also who's room is this party going to be at? I think we're staying at the Hyatt...me being the night owl that I am I know I'll be up real late. I'm thinking of bringing my PS2 and some DVD's...

cyankirby
04-14-2003, 12:06 AM
I will be bringing a PS2 and a GC to the con. No alcohol is fine with me.

Sciguy
04-14-2003, 06:28 AM
Indeed, underage folks don't like drunks, lol. Let's keep it clean, eh?

Darth Takeo
04-14-2003, 06:30 AM
Alcohol would be a luxury, not a necessity. Now, what kinds of stuff would you need? Cups? Plates? Snacks? Sodas? All of the above? Other?

What is the deal with the suite, Studster? Lemme know....

Also, are we shooting for a Friday gig? I won't be able to make it til then, same with the majority of people I've spoken with.

Carmila
04-14-2003, 03:45 PM
Hey, it will be my b-day like a day before so I am ready to party!

Also, you have to remember those of us who are hosting this part are all over 21. Well, atleast those of us who are throwing the Thursday night before party are anyways. I am not saying that we are kicking out anyone who is under 21, however, they will not be allowed to drink alcoholic beverages under ANY circumstances.

[harsh mode]
If they don't like the fact that they can come to the party and not drink, too bad. Those of us who are of age and want to should not be penalized if we want to. I just expect everyone to be responceable and follow the rules.
[/harsh mode]

makio
04-14-2003, 06:39 PM
Heh. It's for that reason alone that I personally think there should be two parties... one for the general 'public', and a second (possibly on late Saturday Night?) for those over 21.

Carmila
04-15-2003, 07:02 AM
Do you really think that Saturday night is good? What about the peeps that have to get up and on the road the next morning? Just a thought.

makio
04-15-2003, 09:02 AM
Whichever. Nothing's set in stone. :)

Studmaster
04-15-2003, 11:27 AM
Hmmm....After taking some things into consideration...I'm thinking Friday Night is something to really think about. I didn't just have it then before, because someone else was planning on a suite Party, and I didn't want to run into it. I shall have an answer for everyone at the end of the week. Along with Suite Princes.

DigitalCactus
04-17-2003, 11:13 PM
can we have 2 room parties? maybe not both at the same room...

Michi
04-17-2003, 11:17 PM
If not a suite, why not two rooms that're connected? Or... something.

Or has this been brought up? ^_^; I only read up to wherever I last replied. o.O

DigitalCactus
04-17-2003, 11:26 PM
that sounds good to me... wow very sweet mai costume by the way...! o_0 *drools*

Carmila
04-18-2003, 02:08 PM
Connecting rooms would be nice. It would probably be a little bit bigger than a suite would be as well.

:Mermaid Tifa:
04-18-2003, 03:30 PM
wait a sec @.@ i've been reading the last few pages and am a little confused ^^, if there is no alcohol, how old must you be in order to go to this party ^^!!!!

:Mermaid Tifa:
04-18-2003, 03:30 PM
or around what age ^^!!!!

Carmila
04-18-2003, 03:58 PM
Ok, I have a feeling that the party that is being thrown in my room(I am rooming with Studmaster) will have alcohol. However, only those who are over 21 are allowed to drink (I am thinking hand stamping or something like that - something visable that we can tell if you are over 21 or not)

If you are under 21 you can come, however, will not under ANY circumstances be allowed to drink. Atleast this is for the party going on Thursday night in our room as far as I know.

:Mermaid Tifa:
04-18-2003, 04:03 PM
Phew makes a whole lot of sense now ^^ thankies for clearing that up, i tend to be a little slow hehe ^^;

makio
04-18-2003, 04:04 PM
That's cool with me and all, but Baltimore PD might disagree... As I stated before, if Maryland law is anything like Florida; if you've got liquor in the presence of minors (ESPECIALLY in a hotel)... you're liable to swift punishment. :drunk: That's why I had said for those under 21, perhaps we should have a seperate room or party night so we don't even get hassled over this issue by '5-O.

If all else fails, we could crash an all-night local diner. :devil:

DigitalCactus
04-18-2003, 09:23 PM
shucks is anyone having a friday or saturday night party? Iwould totally go to anyone of those. Its jsut I know for a fact that Thursday I'll be home preparing for the big day....

that idea about crashing a 24 hour diner sounded good too...i forget who said it ^_^ if a party ends up being at a time and with an age limit i fit in (i'll be 20...just shy of the big one) then i'm more than happy to bring w/e food or money to chip in for food, just lemme know what to bring and where to bring it!

Neko Cathy
05-02-2003, 08:08 AM
Um yea... mind if I stop by? I'm 18 and I'm cool about people not allowing me to drink or not. Thursday's pushing it, Friday is perfect, Saturday it cannot be done because of the Rave, DDR compeition (God knows how long that will be) and Masquerade. And if anyone wants a bouncer... can I be one?

Harle Quinn
05-02-2003, 08:50 AM
I'm tryin to get there by Thursday and leave Monday, so, any day is sweet to me!:thumbsup:

If we figure out what the law is, then I don't think that there should be that much of a problem with people under 21 at the party. If there's an I.D. check at the door and a handstamp or something for those able to drink, there should be no confusion.

Just as long as the people that are under age are allowed to be in the same room, it should be an excellent party. That's the only thing that really needs to be figured out.
I don't think that getting arrested or fined before the con could do anyone of us any good.

BTW, I love the dancing banana Neko Cathy. ;)

In MD (I dunno about other places), you can be at a bar, bartend and be waiting tables while serving alcohol at the age of 18. Anyone under that age cannot be trusted by law. If you guys let who ever let's you rent the rooms know about alcohol being served and they catch a minor around, there's going to be trouble. If someone's under 21 but is 18 or over, it's easier to get those people arrested and press adult charges against someone in that age group than to turn a minor in and shut down the place... I think. If you guys want to throw the party that's fine, but if alcohol's being served minors would not be allowed.

So far what I said is mostly true, but I would double check on that. Baltimore tends to have their own set of rules.

BTW, I love the dancing banana Neko Cathy. ;)
Thanks! :)

Romann
05-03-2003, 01:22 AM
I suggest going the 'club' route. Where I work, they give white bracelets to 18 (underage folk) and black to 21 and over folk... They're like the hospital bands they give you...

I can snatch a stash if needed for the party. ^___^

Ooh, a room party huh? It sounds like fun. I'm turning 21 in July, so I'd love to join you guys at the party. Of course, I probably won't get drunk..x.X It's just that I've never been to a "party" before, so I'd love to see what one is like.
In my personal opinion, I believe the best way to keep out of trouble is by keeping everyone under 21 out of the party..Especially if alcohol is being served, this way you won't have to worry about minors getting everyone in trouble...
..x.x People do like to share drinks you know ...

That's a good point, but here's the big problem and I saw this coming: This party has been advertised to EVERYONE on Cosplay.com of all ages. Try telling people who are under age that "Opps, big change! You're not invited!" when it's been posted publicly. I'm not trying to throw a fit or anything, but some of us might get our feelings hurt. I don't care since I got another party I've been invited to, but someone else could.

Like I said before.. I dont think we need alcohol to have a good time. By singling out underage people it would mean for a smaller party.. and that would SUCK

I agree. I think that a party with everyone would be more fun then having alcohol there anyway...

If people want to go drink then go to the hotel bar. That's another option and it's already a bit too late to kick out the under age people.

Carmila

Eventhough it has been advertised on cosplay.com, there is nothing definate that we are even throwing the party yet. Be that as it may, it is still up to those throwing the party if there will be alcohol or not, or even an age limit.

I agree, having a party with everyone does sound like a lot more fun. Besides we get to meet more people that way ;)

I have no problem with all with not drinking at a party. Just meeting people is fine with me too.
...Lol, Blaze, who said anything about getting Screwed up? I only social drink, anyway.

Blaze
05-11-2003, 05:04 PM
Just in case, a few friends of mine are iffy to go because they think everyone is just gonna get all messed up and throw up everywhere and all that. Pretty wrong impression if you ask me. Socializing is fine for me. Besides I do prefer to rather have a shirley Temple than a fancy-pants drink any day ;)

<<Eventhough it has been advertised on cosplay.com, there is nothing definate that we are even throwing the party yet. Be that as it may, it is still up to those throwing the party if there will be alcohol or not, or even an age limit.>>
That is true too for now. Some people on cosplay.com don't even bother reading a whole thread if it's too long and loose out on the info. It maybe up to the people who are throwing the party and if there's going to be alcoholic beverages, at least invite people over PM. Did anyone see people uninviting people at those picnics that were advertised? Not that I know of because it was displayed publically.

<<I agree, having a party with everyone does sound like a lot more fun. Besides we get to meet more people that way.>>
That's true too or if so, someon could at least try to throw a cosplay party that doesn't involve alcohol as the other one does so that people who want t attend a cosplay party will at least get to one. I'm sort of thinking about it if this is going to end up as some party w/ alcohol and no minors, but I make no guarantees for now. Probably not because of the huge responsibilites to take on w/ my group members and inviting people I don't know into my room.

And besides, there's no reason to fret about getting to go to a room party or not because Otakon has other events showing up until past midnight and you can still meet people. There's rumors going on that Otakon will be open 24 hours so... do whatever to have fun.

EvilMoogleQueen
05-11-2003, 08:11 PM
do you really need alcohol? all it does is cause a lot of problems for everyone. IT excludes a lot of people. and then you have to worry about people getting drunk and getting in trouble.

BlueLady
05-11-2003, 09:35 PM
hmm this sounds like it's getting a tad big for a room anyhow. Maybe it could move to a place that the overaged can drink if so desired, but that still lets underagers in ( is ther such a place around otakon ??)

Vialoi Ketsueke
05-11-2003, 09:47 PM
.........x.x I think everyone is taking my little suggestion seriously. It was just a thought...Honestly, it wasn't meant to be taken seriously. ..It's just that if I was running a party, and if I was the one planning it right now,..I'd exclude minors if I was planning on serving alcohol.

moonclarinet
05-11-2003, 10:45 PM
haha...i came to see what the news was on the party and all i see is an alcohol war ^_^

maybe a few new threads should spawn off of this...whoever's planning on having a party just make a thread about it and say what rules and such are going to be in place on the first post. and if there ends up being people (aka minors) who can't go, then they can have their own party or just have fun at the con..there will be lots of fun to be had, i'm sure ^_^

neko cathy: where did you hear rumors of 24 hour con-ness? that would be awesome! forget the room parties, it's all night con fun! drinking can happen anytime...if i can tour the dealers room all night that doesn't happen every day ^_^

Darth Takeo
05-11-2003, 11:14 PM
Don't forget a supply list! I'll bring whatever, alcohol if that ends up being the consensus. So is anyone making up a list? Lemme know, brother!

Carmila
05-12-2003, 07:07 AM
Actually, this was just an idea being thrown out to see if people would be interested. There hasn't been any "inviting" or "deinviting" done. Heck, we don't even know if there is even going to be a party it yet, let alone the logistics of the thing.

Also, this is a different kind of social event from the Picnics. This is a hotel room party. Since it is such, and I certainly don't want to get kicked out of my hotel room at Otakon, there will be restrictions.

Neko Cathy

<<neko cathy: where did you hear rumors of 24 hour con-ness? that would be awesome! forget the room parties, it's all night con fun! drinking can happen anytime...if i can tour the dealers room all night that doesn't happen every day ^_^>>

I heard it from friends, but I wouldn't fully trust it even though the number of attendees of Otakon increase by thousands every year. The only events I can see happening going on extremely late at night are only the viewing rooms only, definitely not the Otakon Dealers room. Merchants need their sleep too.

If I could tour the dealer room all night, there would'nt be a dealer room the next day as far as anyone would be consirned ( i know i didn't spell that right but oh well)

I'm spending my day friday wandering that place.

but anyway, if need be it's true we don't need the alchohol to have fun. Why not just have a party to have people meet up, dance and enjoy themsleves. There really is nothing wrong with it.

KuroBara
05-12-2003, 06:25 PM
Even if Otakon started running programming 24 hours, I doubt the dealer's room would stay open all night. It's hard enough for dealers to staff their tables during regular hours.

Eh...I never have the money for the dealer's room anyway....but I love 24 hour cons...more fun that way cause I can never seem to find a room party at Otakon and everyone leaves when the con closes....that's why I like Katsucon more.

Hey there everyone, wanted to offer up our room in the Wyndham for gaming as well. Me and Stryfe will be arriving on Thursday and would be happy to host a gaming party on either Thursday or Friday night.

Seeing as how BlueLady, EvilMoogleQueen, JacksUserName, and some others aren't going to be there on Thursday, we figured we'd put small together for the other days.

We'll have our NES, SNES, XBOX, PS2, GCN, GBA on hand for games and my Laptop for Anime / PC Games. I'm debating whether or not to lug our 27" TV too, or just bring Stryfe's 13" from college so that we can have more than one console going at once.

Since ages vary around here and we don't wanna exclude anyone, it will be non-alcoholic.

Anyone interested in coming feel free to send me a pm or leave a post here.

See ya at the con!

cyankirby
06-21-2003, 10:12 PM

Kain Highwind
06-21-2003, 10:27 PM
We have 4 GCN controllers (2 birds), 2 Box Controllers, 2 PS2 controllers. We don't have any four player Box games, so if someone wants to bring Halo they should bring 2 controllers too.

Feel free to bring plenty of games. We have a ton, could post them if people really want to know but maybe it'd be easier to just bring your own copy of a particular game if you really wanna play it. You can pm me too and I'll let you know if we're bringing it already.
