Greetings all! I have attended Otakon for the past 2 years and am setting sights on #3. I am just posting to get to know some con-goers before hand. I'm hailing from Winchester, Virginia.

WELCOME AND HAVE FUN! you'll like it here!
03-27-2003, 06:29 PM
Thanks! So do most people here already know each other? In my perspective the more people you know, the more enjoyable experience a con is, which is why I wanna get to know more con-goers ahead of time. I can't think of another way other than to find others online.
03-28-2003, 02:56 PM
yup, this is a good way to find people, I'm meeting up with like 7 people at AN and a whole lot more at otakon! Beware the boards are addictive!
03-28-2003, 06:38 PM
Hehe, ok, I'll keep that addiction warning in mind.
03-28-2003, 07:09 PM
Welcome! I'll be at Otakon as well. I'm meeting lots of new people there as well! Cons are a great place to meet new people! Have fun!

Yeah, I want to meet some people before hand since it can be that much more fun.

hihi!!!! Me names Cierra Seandylynna Princess Neko kittie Chan Chan (you can pick which name you want to call me). I hail from Pittsburgh PA, this will be my 5th time at otakon. I will be cosplaying as Eriya from Escaflowne, Seras from Hellsing, Aburetsubo from Magic Users Club and maybe Angel from KOF. If you see me lets talk okay?

Nice to meet you Cierra (I picked the 1st name). Are you going to the con with a group or a few friends? I'm in a group of 4 including myself. This will be our 1st time attending all 3 days of the con so its gonna be cool.
03-29-2003, 01:18 PM
a group??? Awwman.... I'm in a group of 17 people, plus the strange people from NJ who practically stay in our hotel. I can remember the good ol days when there was just me and my friend, now i have to drag all these moochers along!!! >_<
Sokay, I like the crowd. ^_^ We are getting there Thursday and leaving Monday, and yourself?
03-29-2003, 04:19 PM
We'll b arriving on Friday and leaving Sunday evening, mainly since B-more is only 1hr 45min away from where we all live.
I think it'd be cool to take a lot of people along like you are, well, as long as they pay their way of course, lol. You have a hotel set up? I made my reservation at the Radisson a week ago. Only 5 min from Con. Center so that works for us.
What's the age range in your group? Our little pack goes from 22, 24, 24, and 29 (I think...) We're all male, what's the gender count for you all?
03-29-2003, 08:35 PM
well we booked for the Wyndym its our little tradition ^^. My group is prodiminatly female about 12 of them. The youngest one is 15 and the oldest is 28 i think. Sometimes its fun to have all these people buuuut all these girls oh god..... One word Catfight and we only have two showers and 6 beds.....
Anywho! Are you going in costume?
03-29-2003, 11:07 PM
Costumes? Yeah it took going to a few cons to realize half the fun is dressin' up. My costume is still in the works. My other friends' have theirs pretty much ready. I'm staying the same costume all 3 days with maybe a little tweaking each day, but same character.
You all have plans in the costume area?
04-08-2003, 12:06 AM
So yeah Im like Takeo's companion in most of these shennanigans, i make some of the costumes you see him in, but i gots lots more! Checkout GBprops.com and look for my Screenname.
Oh and as far as costumes go...
Day 1: This is my BOOM STICK
Day 2: I basically said them (the words)
Day 3: Shop Smart, Shop S-Mart!
