Ya, they made a mistake in the name, there's an h on the official website, neh?

Eh, anyway! So, who's going? And as who? I sure will for both saturday and sunday, as Matsumoto Rangiku (Bleach) and Aion (Chrono Crusade), though which one when... Rangiku saturday for sure since I have to help on the panel and go to the photoshoot, but since we'll have more than likely two awesome guests who had work on Chrono Crusade, I'll have to be Aion when they'll be there obviously!

And on a side note... There's finally an Otakuthon thread here! WHOOT!!!

Ill probably go again
Last year was pretty fun for a small con.
My friends and I went to the dollar store and starbucks and another resturant XD
I heard it's in a bigger and better place this year and neer China Town? *w*

Ill most likely be going as either Myaku Toshiya from Dir en grey or Miyavi in the music vid Pop is Dead.

04-03-2008, 12:26 PM
It's at the Palais des Congrès this year, so ya, BIGGER! ^^

Forgot to say, it's right next to China Town, so it's the best place for it I believe!

I've never been to Montreal before, just Quebec City... it kinda sounds like fun going on a trip~

Considering I'm South of Toronto though, it seems a bit far to go... although I heard the night life there is nice.

The hotel has been booked and I am going to be there. I was hoping to do a panel on Trinity Blood but I have yet to hear beck so....who knows.
As for costuming, My latest version of Tres Iqus from Trinity Blood and as for costume number 2...I'm still undecided but I may do Tyki Mikk from DGray Man...
Looking forward to being back home again. MTL, born bred and raised.
For anyone not fammiliar with Montreal, it is an awsome city. And The palais de congres is so close to Old Montreal...I so can't wait for some of the outdoor photo ops that this will provide.
Less than 4 months to go :)

04-04-2008, 12:06 AM
I have a decent chance of going this year ^_^ (Ah, always good to have family in Montreal. Other than the obvious reasons for wanting to go to Otakuthon, it's also a great excuse to visit close family members at the same time) It just depends whether it will be AN or Otakuthon for me. Schedules, costs and transpo etc. Though it woulbe very lucky if I end up at both.

If I do go...I'll probably just go as Rosette Christopher or Yuuko Ichihara.

04-04-2008, 10:48 AM

Uta Arashino

I don't think we'll be in Moonie costumes though... Not unless we rewear something for the other day. *will talk to partner in crime later*

05-16-2008, 07:46 PM
Hey I wanted to know... because I had never been there so, do we have to arrive like 8h before the opening because there will be a huge line up or do we enter quickly?

*********

Hey je voulais savoir... je n'ai jamais été à une convention alors pour Otakuthon, est-ce qu'on doit arriver 8h avant l'ouverture pour cause de file d'attente énorme ou est-ce qu'on rentre assez vite?

06-01-2008, 12:34 AM
Personally I can't wait...I'm looking forward to seeing quebec based AN friends at Otakuthon...As for the hotel thing...I'm staying in one rather than hassling my parents for a place to crash...plus there is the benefit of being really close to the palais that makes morning (especially sunday) wake-up and arrival so much easier. LOL

TotoToshiya
06-04-2008, 08:47 PM
I am coming, made up my mind, especially after seeing that Otakuthon actually got an actual Japanese Rock band to perform, so that made me excited and made me want to go even more.

It's not really 9000 dollars. It was probably close to a grand when it was new, though. It's since been replaced on store shelves by a newer, flashier model.

Man...with 9000$ dollars thought....i would probably buy myself a Ps3 get it modded and get games for 5 bucks and that wouldn't even be 1\10 of 9000

06-17-2008, 12:34 PM
With $9,000, I could save it up and not let anyone have it. Think of all the delicious savings... I could get roughly 40 cents interest. :D

I've got a question about the Holiday Inn hotel, in some pictures I saw this gorgeous like mini chinese garden. Is that inside the hotel? as part of their lobby? fancy restaurant?....or did I see pictures of the wrong hotel >.>

Also, what's the crowd like at Otakuthon? is it older fans? or a lot more younger...I'm trying to decide what to wear. I am thinking of Macross but don't know if that's too old

From reading the site for the hotel, apparently it's got an atrium lobby with fish ponds and bridges, and the picture that accompanied it made me go wow. Makes me very glad to be staying there, and I'm definitely bringing one of my kimonos for pictures. ^__^

i went ther ein person to see it ^^
it very pretty ^^
inside its like an outside mini garden with a brige and water and wow really nice the other side its a restaurant but the bridge is long enought to make a walk in ^^ more wide then long if its make sens

wen i go again to montreal (20 min in car or 1h15 hour ) i can take a small video or picture and post it for you ^^
its worth it ^^ hehe!



ps: people i still have one space left in my room ^^ 45$ plus taxe iam not sure ^^;; i think tax is include ^^;; cheap cheap ^^ hehe

VickyBunnyAngel
06-24-2008, 01:47 AM
ooo excellent! Thanks Uta and Trixy! Yea...I was eyeing it for photos, and was wondering if it was something we're allowed to...uh invade?

I'd take the extra space in your room trixy, but I have another friend travelling with me, so I'll have to get another room :P Hope the rooms aren't all booked...because I have yet to book mine >.>

jusdepomme
06-24-2008, 12:15 PM
well... the room are all booked. if you still want to be in that hotel, there were only 1 bed room available without the otaku code. There is a travelodge not too far away (two small block away) on Rene-Levesque

Uta Arashino
06-24-2008, 12:57 PM
We actually ended up booking a room with a King-sized bed (double room) without the con code and it was actually about $30 cheaper than what the con code lists. There aren't any triple or quads left though. (But this isn't AN, so that's okay.)

VickyBunnyAngel
06-24-2008, 01:49 PM
Yeaa... I tried the OTA code, but no rooms were left for that price. I'm planning on booking a King sized as well, for whatever regular price they have.

jusdepomme
06-24-2008, 03:51 PM
when I've looked yesterday, all the king size bed or queen size bed room were at an higher price than our rate. Guess you made your reservation soon enough then. (was 170$ last time I've looked)

Uta Arashino
06-24-2008, 08:34 PM
I think it was something like an advanced rate or something for booking in advance. Ended up being $112~ a night.

VickyBunnyAngel
06-24-2008, 10:53 PM
You got an even better rate than I did! I had to go with a Queen Leisure...since I hate smoking rooms and the 1 king smoking was left. but I paid $139 per night :( Advanced rate as well, but I can't cancel it.

What site did you book it through Uta? So I know next time....I booked through the Holiday Inn site linked on the Otakuthon website

Uta Arashino
06-24-2008, 11:13 PM
As did I (or rather, I did all the searching and Scion booked it).
It's weird though. When I originally searched for rooms before AN, they were a lot more expensive, and then they were cheaper right after AN. o.O

Edit: Hey Trixy, are you planning on wearing your Hinaichigo at all for Otakuthon? I'll totally bring Kanaria if you are~

trixyloupwolf
06-24-2008, 11:53 PM
yep iam
but wit out the feet ^^;;

but iam also bringning her at fanexpo
with feet (since it be my maskerade entry ^^;;)

yeah for kanaria ^^

I ask because I -might- not have Kanaria at FanExpo because of another costume.

We need to have a mini shoot. O:

Anyone who can't book into the holiday Inn, try the travel lodge...it is really close to the con and the rates really aren't that bad...it's where I'm staying and I booked in there over two months ago...
Looking forward to seeing many of you at the con.

For Rozen maiden, I plan to wear it as a hall costume, and not during masq. I'll definitely meet up with you 2 though for a shoot! Maybe Sunday as well...although I gotta catch the coach bus back to Toronto around 6 :( so not sure if i'm going to the con, or just wandering Montreal for a bit.

Spector are you bringing your pimp cane? =D

I don't think I have any plans to enter the Masq, so I'm down with wearing Kanaria on whatever day is better for you two. I'll be in Vaporeon on the other day though.

At the moment I have no idea when we're leaving Sunday. Probably something I should discuss with the driver and other party member. @_@

I don't think I'm ever entering a masq because no site ever has information pertaining to their masqs. XD

what are you meaning? what info do you need about the masquerade? I can help providing them if you just tell me what you need to know

BTW, update on the website will a lot of our contest (Otakuthon Idol, Cosplay chess)

I've looked at the entire site and saw no information about when the masq is or how to enter it.
Other cons, I've seen when it was running, but never any information on how to enter into it.

well, the info is kinda long to update on our website, but you can look on the last year website and it'll be pretty much the same.

Before the convention, you fill a form with all the info on it. At the con, you bring the form and a cd (if you're planning on doing a skit or a walk-on with music) at the masquerade registration table. it should be easy to find, if not, ask the info desk. They will then tell you where and when you need to go to the greenroom before doing the show.

Do you need other info?

To add onto what jusdepomme said, you can also fill out the form at the convention itself, as they have them at the Masquerade table (at least, they do at AN and CNA).

VickyBunnyAngel: I will have the pimp cane with me, but only on the Sunday since that's when I plan to do my Tyki Mikk cosplay...Why, did you want to borrow it (LOL)...
BTW: Anybody know how big the Masquerade has been in the past...what kind of line-ups might be expected, green room lag time, etc...I haven't decided if I want to enter or not...and knowing what kind of time commitment I'm probably lokking at might make or break my decision.

you can pay for your badge saturday, then go to the masquerade table to register for the masquerade. In the past, we didn't fill all the available spots so I'm sure you'll be able to get a spot.

Normally, the registration begins at noon. The badge starts selling at 9 am so I'm pretty confident you can get a spot.

spector, I don't remember how long was the masquerade last year. I think we had around 40 participants. The thing is, our masquerade is growing every year so expect this year to be bigger. Judging takes a lot of time and that's why our greenroom opens early, cause you'll be judge by the three judges at the same time. Might change if there are too many people though. We didn't experience any technical issue that delayed our masquerade by the past year (if it has been delayed, it was only 15 minutes)

And Uta Arashi is right, we'll have some forms at our table too.

I'll be there with my first ever "official" cosplay! I'm coming up from Boston just for the con.

Look for a Spirited Away character and you'll find me. :) I haven't decided if I'm Lin or Chihiro, yet, though... There's still some time to find the perfect wig for either.

I'm super excited for this. I am coming, as I think I've posted in the Bleach thread. Going as Soi Fon from Bleach, her battle outfit. Which is ALMOST done! Just need to do some minor details! I'm never this far ahead on a costume this early before a con!! I'm psyched to be going, this is will be my second year at the con, and I just plain love Montreal. Was born there, so it'll always be my home :)

Wooooah~ I'm all excited now! I really hope it is bigger, they are getting better each year. ^^ Can't wait for it~

I'm doing Shiki from The World Ends With You, and Kamui from Tsubasa RC, and maybe some Akito/Agito if I can (since I was him last year, but surprisingly not many people recognized me. ;_;).

I'm in a small Tsubasa group now: Kamui, Subaru, Tokyo Sakura, and a Mokona. :D Anyone else wanna join?

Oh, and I might be taking art commissions in the Artist Alley at MUSEbasement's table. :3 Not sure about it, but stop on by! ^_~
