Ah, I WISH. I feel like I'm the only one NOT going, though, because so many people asked me if I was going when I said bye to them today. *sigh* maybe next year...

I missed the photoshoot because i had to work out lagistics about our masquerade skit while the shoot was going on. It bummed me out so i wasn't, but there should be lots of pics of me around when people start posting. There was def more than 100 taken by various people. So keep a look out. Plus i will be there at otakon as 3 diff versions of roy. Hope to see you there

I wish I was going. I went once to Otakon in 2004 and I just haven't been able to get back yet.

It is very much in the plans for next year. Once they announce the dates I'm going to start planning.

*grumble* All right, this is the last time I miss connecticon!

But I needed to save money between ANext ant Otakon.

I will be debuting a new costume however.... :devil:

Don't worry, next year they're all much better separated. ANext is moving back to June and CTcon is moving to the first weekend in August because of scheduling conflicts.

I have an eye patch, but wasn't planning on bringing it out. Maybe i will. I am sure that people will love it. Its just annoying to have only one eye to walk around with especially at a large con like otakon. But maybe i'll have it on hand for photos.

haha, ditto! Though "pay for me" INCLUDES transportation, I might add. Gah...why does Otakon have to be both far-ish and expensive??? >_>

i wish you guys could go, you make an awesome armstrong btw. And gale makes an awesome aeris like i told her before. if it wasn't just my room i would offer for you guys to stay but unfortunately i can't without asking them. If you really want to go let me know and i will ask.

It really doesn't make sense for me, what with the price of admission. Besides, I'll be at a Harry Potter release that weekend anyway.

I'll be there.. I hope at least. Im always afraid something terrible is gonna happen at the last minute to prevent me from going.. We'll have to see.

(Literaly JUST got in from being on the road home from CTcon... ughhh...)

I'll be at Ota. Not too thrilled about it, since I'm not a huge fan of the con, and I REALLY shouldn't be spending the money on a hotel room, oops, I meant "Presidential suite"... BUT, alas, it is for the betterment of Anime Boston (pre-reg table in dealers' room), so, it would be a dick move if I bailed out now.

So yeah. I'll be in the Dealers Room Fri and Sat, probably looking bored to tears. :D

MORE INSANITY AT THE BAR! If we could wreak such havoc in little old Maine, Imagine what could happen when the bar doesn't close at 12:30!

Oh jeni i don't think it will be that bad, me and lyndsey will come and give you some company. no need to fret. =) Go and enjoy yourself.

WOOHOO! Cosplay Bar-Raid!
I was WAAAAAAY too sober at Connecticon. I still am not sure how the hell that happened.

Crazy Flower needs to come to CTcon next year. Because you should have been there this year. There were fun shennanigins. It was beautiful how we all yelled "HEY HEY HEY!" when Steve killed off people during Chess. :crylaugh:

As much as I wanted to I used my one Friday off privilege from work that I get from June to December......it sucks that my supervisor can't even function when I'm out.

Gale, four words: Shopping cart, creepy truck.

Meh, Hartford is almost dead when it comes to after-hours activities. I will have to go next year.

But I saw Gale last week, and I'll see Jeni next week. (I may end up spending a lot of my money on other-con registration)

HAha-- Creepy truck was CREEEEEPY!

CrazyFlower-- AB reg will be $35 at Ota (cash and check only...) so you'll actually wind up SAVING money being as though at-the-door was $50 last year, and I'm not sure WHEN it's going up to $40 or whatever...

EvilBob-- Just got back to work this AM and found out that since I've been gone all but THREE DAYS of this month so far (literally. Today is the fourth day that I've been at work for all of July...) there was NO WAY we could keep up on our workload. Ha-- guess it made me feel importsnt or something. So I feel your pain... It sucks being one of two people in the whole office trained on something.

BakaBabe-- I totally saw your Fuu, and it rocked hardcore. Samurai Champloo needs more love. Too bad it kept forgetting to bring my camera with me all weekend. :(

Are you wearing Fuu to Otakon? If so, I will get a pic. My one friend LOVES Samurai Champloo and she'd been talking about cosplaying Fuu for a while now. Don't know if it will ever actually happen though. XD

No, that wasn't me you saw. I roasted my ass off wearing the jacket all weekend...

Here's a sweet pic of our group found in a random album posted on the Connecticon forums:

I'll be at Otakon walking around in my Warcraft Troll costume. Also a Dominic Deegan cosplay that I'm working on . . . Connecticon was my con to "work" (I had a table) and Otakon is my con to "play" (walk around in a good costume instead of a half-a-Seifer or half-a-Cid . . . )

I will be there. Leaving today to return home to Delaware, Wed job interview and mom's bday celebration plus last-minute costume repairs then trucking down to Baltimore on Thursday.

I am planning the following costumes if anyone wants to bum around or just say hi:

Thursday: Reno from FFVII AC
Friday: Wolfwood from Trigun, Cloud and Sephiroth (both FFVII Game version)
Saturday: Sephiroth and maybe Cloud
Sunday: Draco Malfoy and maybe Wallmarket Cloud

I don't go to Otakon anymore. That convention can no longer overcome my hatred for the city of Baltimore.

There are plenty of cons in other cities that I'd rather spend my money on.

If it makes you feel better, I wish I WEREN'T going.
I'd much rather be home reading Harry Potter. (I swear, if some little turd spoils it for me at the con, I'll go Avada Kedavra on their asses...)

But I don't want to be a dick and screw Mike over, so I'm gonna go broke and suck it up. :/

Baltimore is a pit.
I SO cannot get myself excited about this con.

I'm trying... it's not working.

Yes! Gatta show what NE cosplayers are all about! :rockon: Someday I wouldn't mind meeting up maybe while at the con.
