Nice hotel that they're having it at. :)

Unfortunately for me, it's the same weekend as Ohayocon, so i'll be going there instead.

Everyone who's going to AOD, please have fun!

Ouch! But you have fun over there. I'm looking forward to next AOD since its now closer to Japantown. Whats even more funny it probably might feel like JTAF just like the old days.

We had to change locations because the Cathedral Hill Hotel is planning to close at the end of the year.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the admins for updating our forum title :-)

Also, pre-reg is now open! http://www.aodsf.org for more info.

I will be attending this event. For me to live so close to SF and come up with an excuse not to go is unacceptable on my behalf. ^^ So count me in~

Haven't been to AOD in ages, but this new location is as good a reason to go as any. That being said, I plan on going, so count on seeing me there.

I'm there for sure. Gotta defend my team's title in Iron Cosplay. :p AOd always feels like such an amazing con.

I'll probably go on Saturday, if I can get the day off work.

I'll go only if my plans for going to Ohayocon on that same weekend fall-through. :blubber:

I haven't booked airfare yet and the total costs of choosing AOD over Ohayocon will save me a lot of $$, but just not get as many pictures. And i won't run the risk of getting sick after AOD, unlike Ohayo because I'll have been out in the cold & snow all weekend. hehe :D

Come to AOD Eurobeat! I haven't seen you around in forever, and you always seem to be sick before all the Bay Area events lately.

I have never been to AOD but I'm so happy it's down in Japan Town! I checked out the Kabuki Hotel and it's very pretty. We're going to feel like we're in Japan!

My friend and I will be going as Fruits Basket characters...so we're excited to have rooms with the Japanese-esque feel to it. Perfect for a photoshoot ^~^

Ah. I'm just so happy. :] Even if it is smaller than the usual ones I go to--I'm still going to have a great time! (Plus...like 5 of my friends are going too).

Not sure what I'm bringing but it will probably be a repeat from ALA.

Ehh?! You're getting a room? Don't mind if I leave my cosplay stuff there so I don't have to freak people out on MUNI. lol

Rawr. I'll totally go to your party, Vampirechild. D:!!!!!!!! Freakin' Japanese Suite~!! Best birthday ever---for you.

We'll be there...three days. One day to just get in, leave our crap and visit japantown..then the rest for AOD! ^~^!

If anyone else is going as a Fruit's Basket character, we'll definitely get pics. D:?

lol XD Kitty suggested it (I hadn't thought of getting a room), so I think we might be looking into it. But I guess we could let you stash your stuff if we do :rolleyes: lol

I love the suite in Kabuki Hotel. I remember back in JTAF4 I partied and played DDR in a suite at Kabuki Hotel. Good times.

The Hotel Kabuki has been completely remodeled since JTAF was held there. The rooms are much nicer now. And they're only $89 a night :)

There are some pictures here:

^~^ Yes! The rooms are definitely quite lovely. It really gives a feel of Japan. I can't wait to visit the little underground malls they have around there. I love strolling around Japantown. :]

Yay, we have until the end of the month!

I'm definitely still going as Ayame Sohma (my first crossplay o.o;;) and my 4 other friends will be cosplaying too. We're staying for two nights.... I hope we make some new friends! :D It'll be a small convention I assume but still fun........yeeess? >.>; You can't NOT have fun in San Francisco.

The thing that kind of sucks about running the cosplay is that it's too hard to work all day in costume. Maybe I'll be able to wear something on Sunday though~

ME!! Me and two other friends will be going as FruitsBasket characters on Sat and then Disgaea characters on Sunday (I believe...). We'll be there Fri, Sat and Sun. Yes...I am aware there is nothing on Friday but we want to be there a day early so we have time to relax and wake up fresh in the morning! We also love San Francisco..and being there in general. XD

I really want to go but I've never attended AOD. It's really last minute for me. How is it like?

I want to cosplay as Selphie Tilmitt from FF8 but I'm afraid it might be too cold for that lol. I'll probably just wear normal clothes.

I really hope I don't have work on that weekend. =D

Sheik Chan
01-16-2010, 10:54 PM
I've honestly never been to it either but it's going to be at a lovely Japanese hotel in Japantown and I've been to japantown. I love it there! So even if the con wasn't that fun, I know I'd be happy just cosplaying at one of my favorite places to be XD

P.S.
I WISH someone was going as Kyo from Fruits Basket :(!!!
