Just wondering, what made all you newbies decide to attend this year? Is it because cosplay.com is going to officially be there or is it just a coincidence?

I mean, the guest are the same as last year and the admission is $10 higher :P

I can tell already this is going to be taken entirely the wrong way...I don't mean anything bad by this, just curious.

Maybe because the veterans have been talking it up? :) It is a really huge, fun con, and IMHO, the best one in the Southeast. You know what they say, enthusiasm is infectious.

Let's hope my computer doesn't lock up again when I make this post :P

Anyway...like I was saying HUGE is right. They really need to add on another hotel. Sure they can't change hotels because of the contract but there's nothing that says they can't take another hotel on.

Last year I kept getting crammed up against sweaty people :(

I'm going to avoid the main floors during peak hours.

(Not to say D*C isn't one of the best cons ever, it is, everyone should go...they just shouldn't all stand in the same place at the same time ;) )

From what I have heard from a friend of mine who is in charge of Security for the Dealers room at the Con. They are currently in talks with the Hilton, which is directly behind the Marrott, to have them as a 3rd hotel for possibly 2005 or 2006 at the latest. Also they have contracts with both the Hyatt and the Mariott for the next 5 years.

Dragon Con is definatly not new to me. As an Atlanta Local I have been an Eternal Member since 1993 and attending since 1991. I go back a long ways and did not start Costumeing until 1996 or so.

I'm definitely going. The past couple years I've had to miss it for various reasons. This year everything is all set and it's a "go". ^_^ The reason I've wanted to go is because my friends that have attended for years have said that it's probably the best con they've ever been to, and even though it's fairly expensive it's the only con WORTH spending all that money. How could I argue with that? A con that has sci-fi, comics, costuming, anime, and movie junk really does have it all! It's for the ecclectic geeks like myself. ^_~

Actually, DragonCon came first, I went last year with my husband, and DragonCon got me interested in Cosplay. I joined this site to get some info and Ideas about my costumes for this years Con.

Great to see this list growing more and more. I am actually supprised to find this many Cosplayers that will be attending. Dragon Con has allways had more of a Sci-fi pull in the past, but I know a lot of Sci-fi Costumers are branching out now as well.

There was a place last year, so I'm assuming there will be a place this year.

If I'm not mistaken, someone had posted around here somewhere about still having the banner from last year to use this year.

I'm never awake in time for the parade :P

The first time I went to DragonCon was in '99 with my role playing group. I was there last year as well though I didn't get to see much of the con. I spent the entire weekend helping out at the Brute Force Leather booth. I must admit I almost prefer sci-fi cons. I don't feel so old in comparison to the average con goer at sci-fi cons. ( At 28 that probably puts me at roughly 10 years older than the average anime con goer. )

I <3 Brute Force Leather :)

I also prefer sci-fi cons due to the same reason. I go to anime cons and I almost always regret it because it's full of "kids". Sure there's some 20-somethings mixed in but they're sparse. It's a whole different feel at an anime con and it's not really my bag. Most of my friends are late 20s to 30s so the whole vibe doesn't mix well with me. DragonCon is cool though because that's the age of most of the attendees :)

It's like at the last anime con I went to, my friend was trying to pick up chicks and I had to keep yelling at him saying "NOOOOO SHE'S ONLY 15!!!" You don't have to worry about that so much at D*C ;)

08-02-2004, 05:03 PM
Well Any plans as a group? I would love to see if we could maybe pull an AX tradition to DragonCon and have a table party later on. So Admin or Eurobeatking think we could maybe work that out. I know that the only thing with it is eventually things get quiet in the con areas later at night as most of the folks move on to the room partys that go on each night. But things are allways happening till about 2 or 3 am in the con areas.

Schu
08-03-2004, 10:01 AM
Last year there were tons of tables and stuff that could easily be shanghai'd later in the night. I'm down for it, or at least stopping by. :)

Aleathia Burns
08-03-2004, 12:02 PM
I have never heard of a table party (I'm so sheltered), but I am game it depends on if I can get a hotel room for saturday as well so I can stay up late. Anyway it sounds like fun.

Ravien
08-03-2004, 12:20 PM
What exactly is a "table party"?

Ragresen
08-03-2004, 01:45 PM
Well The Table party is pretty simple. Basically Cosplay.com has in the past at AX and Katsucon set up at a table later for us all to gather at. There is normally food and lots of cosplayers to hang with. It is not anything too special, but a good way to have fun when ya got nothing else to do.

Aleathia Burns
08-03-2004, 02:00 PM
I guess I can stop on by after I finish causing Trouble, greef, and Mayhem...uhh I mean having good clean fun!!!!

Eurobeat King
08-04-2004, 01:09 AM
UPDATE: Well, the final piece to the puzzle has been solved.. I purchased my airline tickets tonight, and it looks like EBK will FINALLY make his first appearance to Dragoncon! :skidude2: Thankfully the price wasn't that bad with a month to go, and calling an airline via phone and SPLITTING the cost on 2 credit-cards doesn't feel so painful.. heehee So I'll be arriving on that Friday, September 3rd, around 7:30am, and hopefully should be at the con by 8am. I'll head straight to the pre-reg. line, and then the photo-madness begins! ;) I'll be there for all 4 days, leaving on Monday after 8pm, so that means the picture-count goes all the way until I leave the con after 6pm..

Can't wait to see what this con is all about, and I'll be busy until then posting the Otakon pics and moving into my new place. By the time the con comes, perhaps then I'll get back into the swing of cosplay-photographs after a looong 5 weeks off.. See you all there!!

Good luck in "The Line". I arrive on Thursday partly to avoid it ;) Last year it took me two hours. Not sure how long it took the people that arrived on Friday onward.

I've never stayed long past checkout on Monday. People tend to scurry away once the dealers room closes, though there are still some panels going.

DragonCon is alot of fun, try not to get lost in it all ;)

Eurobeat King
08-04-2004, 01:33 AM
Ravien: Well, another airline would've gotten me there at 5:15am, and even though I've gotten to cons around that time before, I reallly get tired, as I usually can't sleep on planes. So at least if there's some people around at 8am, I can try to stay awake and hopefully pre-reg. won't be too bad this year.. As for leaving on Monday, my only other option with the airline I got was to leave at 9:30am, but knowing me, I like to stay around until the con's over, since you never know who might like to cosplay on the last day.. ;)

Costumes.. I think I'll just bring Shinji to Dragoncon, since I want to pack light again like I did for Otakon, and so maybe one costume won't hurt. Was tempted to bring Hibiki to fight off all those jedi's and other sword-packing characters using my cane-sword, but I plan to bring just one suitcase and a backpack. Bringing the cane-sword (or just the sheath) would require another case or box.. But we'll see.

I'm not sure if I'm going to have a table-gathering at Dragoncon, since at the last few cons the table-gatherings weren't as successful. (I think the last good one I had was at Anime Central in May..) And I can't really play that much anime-remixes or Para-Para, since Dragoncon isn't really an anime-based convention. *gasp* The con-attendees may not even know what Eurobeat is!! :thumbsup: But we'll see. If myself & Admin choose to have one, I'll make a seperate thread for it. ;)

08-04-2004, 02:37 AM
Well, of course I am going... haha

Here is last year's LLNN report that still to this day gets uber amounts of hits... probably another contributing reason why D*C attendance will grow for 2004. http://www.usagichan2.com/Dragon2003/

Adella and I are going.

Ragresen
08-04-2004, 06:49 AM
EBK: I warn you the prereg line on Friday will take you about 2 to 3 hours to get through. That is because Dragon Con runs somewhere close to 20,000 attendees easily if not more. Think of the size of SDCC and you have a good idea of the size of Dragon Con. Play what ever you wish at the table as the crowd at Dragon is into more than just sci-fi and fantasy. Trust me there are lots of Anime folks in the crowd and would like a break from the Sci-fi and Fantasy stuff. It is one reason Anime is makeing a stronger return to Dragon Con. I could allways arrange for Shinji to carry a laser based weapon if you desire.

Admin: Got you onthe list allready. Guess I need to add Adella.


Well look forward to having those who make Cosplay.com fun to have about at a con present.

I've been reading this site for a long time, but I just started posting, so I'm pretty new, but I'll definitely be at Dragoncon. I can't wait until they put up the schedule grid!

For anybody who decides to go get in line Thursday night for badges, be sure you go early enough. A good bit before the end of the time they're supposed to be there, they'll cut off the line. I want to say it was an hour or two ahead of the end last year, but I don't remember exactly.

Hey guys is it a good time to get in line on thursday at lets say 7:00 p.m cuz I get off work at that time and I am already prereged and all. Will it take me about 2 hours to get my badge?, I don;t mind the wait cuz it is worth it, but I would like to know so that I know what I am in for.

I got in line last year around 5pm and the wait was about two hours (and I was in high heeled boots...ouch) I don't know how long the wait will be at 7...probably somewhere between 2-3 hours. Bring a gameboy or a friend :P

Last time I checked they had 2 or 3 left to sell. They are about $600 dollars. Go to the website and get the main number to the Regrestration and give them a call. They will tell you if any are left and if there is can sell you one. I have had mine since 1993.

Kell: Yeah, I'm really excited about Dragoncon, and I know my weekend will be busy, so I'll do my best to take a lot of pics and TRY to cosplay 1-2 costumes during those 4 days. Last time at A-kon and SDCC I missed out on a costume of yours, so this time I'll try to get it perfect this time.. ;) Since you know the layout of the hotel(s), you can tell me at the con where's a good place to meet up for photoshoots. Good luck finishing up your last 2 costumes!! :D

Good luck to everyone else working on your costumes for Dragoncon! See you all in a couple o' weeks!

Though it's still a toss up on whether or not I can leave early from work on Friday to get to Dragon*con, it's at least "green-light" for me on Saturday to Sunday. I just kinda wish the 'experience' wasn't as expensive... but I'm told it's worth it. My wallet certainly hopes so! LoL!

Ah well, at least I'm getting two friends of mine to go along for the fun, one from Florida(making the drive with me) and the other from the Carolinas. All three of us are newbies. :thumbsup:

Still waiting on the 'green light' that it'll be decent enough to make it up to ATL on Friday afternoon/evening from here in Florida... though I'm almost certain the damn hurricane isn't changing course, if it does, I'm haulin' ass up there. LoL However, if I don't go, have fun everyone.


...the coincidence of it all is that I didn't make it to Yasumicon because of Hurricane Charley two weeks ago. And now Dragon*con this week. Who knows what'll be flung to godawful Florida next when AWA rolls around. :thumbsup:

Kell: No Amalthea for me. ;o; At first I had to cancel that costume due to lack of funds, but now without Peter S. Beagle there I just don't have the heart to make her. I think I'll wait until I'm back in Northern California before I set out again on that project. The character is so close to my heart I just want to wait until the right time.

Hey everyone,

My last post before I depart for Dragoncon, and again, be safe getting there by car or plane. :) I decided NOT to bring Shinji, so NO costumes for me at the con. My first time there, so I want to concentrate on picture-taking and see how many I can get at this con if I don't cosplay. And it's more a sci-fi/comic/movie con (like SDCC) I'll wait until the next anime con (NDK in 2 weeks) when I'll cosplay more. :) So look for me in regular clothes, walking around and taking pictures. And if you're a member of c.com, let me know who you are (in case we have yet to meet in person) as it's always nice to meet new people and new members!

Also, I'll be bringing a portable stereo, which isn't as loud as my subwoofer & speaker system can dish out, but it's easy to move, so keep an eye out for me since I might set up a cosplay.com table-gathering either tomorrow (FRI) or Saturday night. And you know what that means: Eurobeat music and printing out cosplayer pics from the day's assortment! :skidude2: Not sure WHERE to set it up tho, but I'll try looking out for one tomorrow when I get settled in..

See you all tomorrow morning!!

This'll be my third consecutive Dragon*Con, but sadly my friend Kat won't be able to make it this year. But my friend from here is going as a Boba Fett, so I'll get to sit back in the AC and watch as he marches in the parade in his baking hot costume. (I've tried the helmet on, and that thing insulates heat some fierce.)
This year I'll be doing Vash the Stampede again, this time with a few improvements made, and also I'll be doing Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2. But, PH is huge and cumbersome, and the helmet really limits my non-peripheral vision, so I'll only be doing that during times when there's not much going on. (S'still a cool-looking costume, though. Only took about a gallon of vinyl primer to get the paint to stick to it though...)

Next year I'll be sure to join in the FF fun. (Seems fitting, what with all the major releases due out next year.) Me and Kat have already planned a Cait Sith costume, and I'm contemplating also doing Vyse from Skies of Arcadia. (Those cutlasses would rawk if done right...)

I wish I could get my loveless costumes for my dolls done, but I am having a a heck of a time getting the little green over shirt to fit over the black turtle neck. I am on my second try. And I have to find a better fur wig, the ears just don't stand up on the one I have. I ned a better source of fake fur.
