Hey, anyone else planning to go to Takocon? Better yet, has anyone else even heard about it??? It's a brand new convention starting up in Pittsburgh, PA, this December. The big appeal (supposedly) is the $1200 best-in-show cosplay prize.

Come support this new convention (and visit meeee)!!!

Geez that's a lot of money. Have they been advertising all over the place?

I think I'm going! I'm hoping I'm going. ^^; Maybe I'll have my Mihoshi/Michiru haircut by then. ^_^ Then again I'm probably going to slave over the main parts of my Gram costume so that'll definitely be making an appearance if I'll get off my lazy butt and work on it. u.u;;

I'm in Philly, and I refuse to go. Going to Pittsburg isn't my idea of fun, and neither is competing in cosplay for money >.< It's just asking for trouble. I'm stayin' away....

There are 2 cons in NYC. BAAF and AXNY. I live 45 min away in a lil town. Going to NYC isn't my cup of tea sometimes, but I'm going just to represent, so should you! :)

If it wasn't in winter I would be tempted to go to see what everyone comes up with costume-wise. Hopefully lots of pics will be taken so us at home can see.

Nope, since I drive everywhere hauling lots of costumes, I don't want to risk bad winter weather - especially going through the mountains since they close roads if gets too bad as midsouth doesn't have enough equipment to handle stuff like that. My last cons are in November, to hopefully miss bad weather (sometimes get ice at that time of year).

I am planning on going to this... "takocon" though we have enjoyed calling it TACOcon and making horrid taco bell jokes... but i digress....
My main appeal for going is i love new/small cons. its only 2 1/2 hours away, and it will give me a con a month for three months - Anime USA - Nekcon - Takocon. WEEEE EYAR!
i dont enter skit cosplay stuff so the money doesnt really appeal to me. *shrug*

^^

Small cons rule! My real big con I'm headed for is AXNY... IT's 45 minutes by train away from me! Lookout Times Square! =D

Well I'm pretty sure I'm going now. Costume-wise I'm definitely bringing Wizard (Angelic Layer), and I'll try Gram (Shamanic Princess) if I have time to make it. I hope to see those of you who are going! We're going to have to set up a group picture time because I want pics for my site! ^_^\\//
