Interbay region of Magnolia Hill, in Seattle. Takes me like 15 minutes or so to get downtown on the bus (that's if the buses aren't being a pain in the ass... which they often are).

Bellingham, WA. Only about an hour and a half, depending on traffic.

Hyua, I did that 2 years ago for anime evolution, it's a little unnerving going to a different country all alone xD. Hope ya have blast at SC.

Whoa, hey, me too! :rockon: I'm coming from Klahanie - you?

Santa Barbara, CA.

I blame family in the area for this. It's their fault I got into cosplay in the first place!

While I live in Issaquah, I actually attend school down at UC Santa Barbara - are you by chance a student there, as well? Thank goodness Spring Break is at the right time, otherwise I'd never make it! :toothy: As it is, I have to miss Sunday for my flight back, but I hear the best stuff is on Fri/Sat anyway. And so nice that you can blame the family...my friends won't take responsibility at all! XD

Arissa-chan
03-17-2008, 09:52 PM
I can't wait to hopefully meet you guys! I'll probably make a sign saying "Cosplay.com member" or hang around the booth a lot...or something.
There's so much going on this year, too, and it doesn't look like Piano Squall will be there *cry*

I'm from the Bay Area (the suburbs near the San Francisco Bay) in California.

I do, however, have family up in Mount Vernon who I've been meaning to visit, so Sakura-con is rather convenient. (Go to con, visit family, fly home!)

03-22-2008, 01:42 PM
Eugene, OR. Five hours in a car with my crazy little sister, emo older brother and usually half-out of it younger brother. Headaches will probably abound.

... I wonder if we can hook the PS2 up to the dvd player?

Lady Shinsei
03-23-2008, 01:46 AM
You'd better hope so, or you'll be sure to be living in heck-ville real soon into your trip (believe me, after taking a trip to Mount St. Helens in a friend's van with a bunch of teens and a few pre-teens & little means of entertainment what-so-ever, I definitely know how much it'll suck once folks get bored halfway there... ugh...).

@Vicki = You're coming here in a minivan? Hope your trip past the border doesn't suck... I hear that it's been downright annoying lately getting through there.

Totally agree. And the worst part about it? I was living out past the Sunset truck stop off the freeway. Middle of NOWHERE.

But it's a very pretty state. And most of my friends lived in Concord Mills, anyway

If you ask me, if you had to fly to the convention, you get points. If you flew and it still took you longer then what most people spent driving, you get double points.

I went to Sakura-Con for the first time this year, and I drove all of the way from a small town in southern Oregon. It was an 8 hour drive :(

Unfortunately, us Oregonians have only one native con, so we have to drive down to California (land of 20 Cons a year) or up to Washington the rest of the time to get some action.
