World of Warcraft at Project A-kon 23.

What is A-kon?
A-kon (http://a-kon.com) is the oldest continually running, anime-based convention in North America. Located in Dallas, Texas.
Celebrating its 22nd year in 2011, A-Kon hosts anime fans and guests, and offers other items of interest ranging from gaming, to independent film, all in the quest to provide the best experience for the fans and bring the most engaging, and educational, entertainment to the anime community.

Aw, Jaina is taken? Sad face.

Looks like a great project though. :) Hopefully you can have quite a few participants!

I can't dedicate myself for 2012 yet, but are you going to be there this year? :O It would be nice to hang out.

Oooh, well I was planning on making Jaina next year anyway for BlizzCon! I've actually got a mini-group of Jaina / Thrall / Varian / then Tirion or Arthas planned; could probably swing it for this since Texas isn't as far away as most other cons!

@Catfetus: I noticed on the facebook group that there are going to be some WoW cosplayers in general on the Friday of the con, I'm not sure about Seiten specifically.

I will be on friday this year.
On the A-kon forums on here and on the site, I'm the one organizing the little meet up this year as well.

This actually sounds like a ton of fun! I'll have my worgen costume finished for BlizzCon this year, and I live about 30 minutes from Dallas. I've never been to A-kon, but I've always wanted to go. This would give me a great reason to. :]
