It looks like the dates for Comiket were finally announced. I think its the same weekend every year....
Anyways, I am planning on going, since I dragged my Sailor Moon costume all the way to Japan- MUST cosplay!

I've attended Comiket 70, but I can't for the life of me remember if I attended on Sat or Sun.
So my question is: WHO is going, and WHICH day is better- Sat or Sun?

I have to request off work, maybe 1-2 weeks in advance, so I need to plan ahead. I'd like to meet up with some other cosplayers as well.

Japanese Cons are quite different from the ones in Canada and the US. At Comiket thereís a lot more people, and a lot more rules to fallow. As far as Cosplay goes thereís a few things to keep in mind. If your gonna Cosplay there, you have to know that there are changing rooms inside the con that you must use to change in (using the washroom to change in is forbidden). You Also must use them before you leave the con.
To get to the Con you have to use public transportation because there is no room to park anything there. When taking picture always ask for permission, and donít take them outside of the Cosplay Square.

To get more information about the Con just click on this link:

(qcobb are you going with your sister to Japan with the kids for Kaga program? Iím just curious because thatís the program Iím getting involved in to go there.)

If you can only make it on one day. Go on Saturday. Friday usualy has limited cosplay space for half the day and Sunday is a short day.

For those who are going for the first time:

Cons are very different in Japan. Comiket has a no prop rule. And as mentioned in an earlyer post you must change into your costume at the con's dressing room. You cannot come to the event already in costume. The dressing room charges like ¥600 if I remember right. Without the cosplay book they give you when you pay you can't get into the main cosplay area in costume. Pictures can only be taken in specified cosplay areas.

It's alot of fun though. I enjoy comiket alot. But make sure you drink lots of water. It's going to be hot and you can dehydrate if you're not careful. Sunblock is a good idea as well.


Friday: World War 2 German Military Police Sergeant
Saturday: Kyon from Suzumiya Haruhi
Sunday: Yamazaki Hiromi from Mobile Police Patlabor
