I hate how I want to talk to people about the con but there's not really a thread that I fit into. How you guys doing? Who's going? What are your plans? What are you excited about? Gonna be meeting up with people?

You know I'll be there. Got invited back for a second round of video fun, so we'll see what happens.

Hello ^^ I am going by myself I believe, driving all the way from Denton near Dallas. Ironically I live in Houston but not when I am going to college. I have no set room I am staying in because I am awaiting a friend of mine's decision to go or not. I plan on hanging around the gameroom as usual playing Naruto but on Saturday I will be attempting to locate people from .hack to go with my Sora. ^^

I loved Oni-Con last year so this year I know it will be awesome.

On a side note as mentioned in the costumes thread, I am going as at least one version of Gara from the jrock group Merry, Sora from .hack//SIGN and Michael from Angel Sanctuary.

I'm trying to contain my perpetual giddyness. I'm going with some friends from around here. I actually hope to talk to more people this time around. I am very much looking forward to a few weeks from now.

I can confirm Vincent Valentine and Amon. Any other costume is unlikely at this point, but who knows? I do hear requests...

Wait a sec, are you the same marzgurl that called proz this past weekend at Linucon? If so, the phone was passed around and I said Donald Rumsfield into it.

oh, and to stay on topic, I'm terribly excited about the cosplay competition, because our group is doing a skit based on an idea we had, and we get to cosplay from Reboot XD This will be my fourth convention, if you count Linucon, and I hear Oni-con is really fun.

Hahaha! Yeah, that'd be me. I'm the only one I know who ever has used the screen name MarzGurl for the past 6 or so years, and it's the only screen name I've ever used. Cool that I now kinda know you by some association!

Oh, I can not wait. We went last year as our first con and we weren't as prepaired. ><; We got our room as soon as we could..which was in like April or May. ^^;; Heh. But I am bringing a lot of my friends with me and we are all hyped about it. When we talk about the con at school, it makes us so happy. Oni-con will be my third con, but for all my friends it's their first. Hehe, so much fun!

And for costumes, I am going as Faye from Cowboy Bebop(dont think I will be wearing it for long though, when I made the costume, I had confidance..not now. ><;; a Harvest Moon group <3 and maybe some other costumes. Not really sure..stupid Hurricane Rita has thrown me way off. >>;

But other than that, I can't wait to see everyone there. ^_~

LOL Best week of my Life too! I'm going to NIN too before Oni-con. I'm flying in to houston though and staying with a friend. This is my first time to go and I'm debuting my Amano Tifa costume. I'll also be in my EGL Itachi costume though with the Mangenkyou Sharingan eyes. I hope I can meet lots of cosplay.com folk.

Well the almost full out entourage of Doppelganger Cosplayers are going. I'm soo hyped for this convention due to my extra special debut of my Trinity Blood cosplay. Thank the gods that it will be cooler. I'm soo gonna fry and sizzle in that cosplay, due to velveteen overload. Anticipation is killing me.

Right now I'm doing last minute minor detailing and fixing stuff/revamping little issues.
I'm looking at hopefully bringing 4 costumes. Ion Fortuna, Rith, Talim and Sailor Pluto. I just don't know what to wear when an where. Only definite is Ion on Saturday and hope that I don't bruise the h*ll outta my chest with super binding.

Wow, seems so great that many people will be going to Oni this year. My brother and I are planning to go as actual ninjas, not raver, febreeze, or swiffer, but actual ninjas. I actually plan on being a camera ninja (hehe). I hope to take lots of pictures of people in their cosplay. I am sure that I have seen some of you at the last Oni and will try to look for you all in your new cosplay. More than likely I will be hanging around the dealer's room, game room, and video rooms. My brother and I have actually gone 72 hours without sleep, so we are prepared.
MarzGurl I am sure that there will be people wating for your footage of Oni.

Yes, at long last Im going to Onicon! Ive had quite some diffculty but Im actually going! Hooray!
Im going with three of my friends. :3

I'll be running around as Raver Alice from Alice in Wonderland along with the Mad Raver Hatter also a Soild Snake from Metal Gear

I can't even walk to the back of walmart. I'm sooo way too compulsive. and now.. -sweat- my parents are trying to teach me a lesson and have cut off funds. Going home this weekend to work for them so I can get moneys. Damn mowing.. being allergic to grass isn't cool.

but then again- hehe. Neighbors take pity. so when I go rake their leaves.. they'll give me 50$... older people are awesome. And then.. the cans I've collected... not to mention the commision I've been working on.. so.. honestly, I'm fine- it's just stressing not having it at this moment, lol.

Yea, I'll make it. God as my witness! lol...

Reboot. Dude I loved watching that show, I remember waking up at 6:30 in the morning just to watch it. Now I have to get a picture of you and your group. As for people who live like 20 mins away from the hotel (10 min the way i drive, heh) just remember you will have a long trop when you decide to go to some other cons in texas or any other state. I remember arriving at Dallas in 3.5 hours, almost hypnotizing except for the pimpin statue of Sam Houston on the way.

Supposedly last year opening ceremonies were at 10 AM and that they didn't work, so now they're being moved to 12 PM or something like that. Not nearly a big enough jump, if you ask me.

Yeah, and I've skipped my fencing class too mucn (my last class of the day) and I can't afford to skip one more or else I'm going to be dropped, so I have to leave San Antonio at 1:00.

Woah, that seems a little early. o.o At Ushicon they had it at like 6. But I am skipping school(I haven't missed any days yet, I made sure of it XD) so we should be there somewhat early. Wait, when can we check into our hotel rooms?

MarzGurl
10-12-2005, 09:39 PM
See, that's what I was saying on the Oni forums, too. I don't know when we're allowed to check into our rooms, and I fear that if the OC's are that early that we'll have to lug all of our luggage into the Main Events room and then lug it all back out, then wait for even longer to get our rooms. Typically check-in time isn't until... like... 3:00 PM. So... yeah. Real inconvenient there.

Since you're already in Houston, leaving at noon sounds about right. Of course, this also depends on whether or not you actually care about the opening ceremonies, and also whether or not they decide to actually hold them at noon as they say. If you don't care, then okay, sounds perfect for a local.

I'm more interested in sleeping than watching the opening ceremonies. Which is why I'll more than likely be sleeping on the way there, after we check in, before the evening comes and maybe half-way through Friday. I'm not sure if I'll be willing to stay awake long enough to go to the dance, perhaps I'll stay awake all through Friday, I am rather lazy though.

*straying away from the age thing*

I heard from the hotel that checkin time is 3:00, since I asked if I could have early checkin when reserving my room. However, the friendly man said you can possibly get in early if your room is not occupied when you arrive. Just how early I'm not sure. If not it goes on a cart in holding.... I'm hoping to get there pretty early since I live like 10-15 minutes away. However, I usually skip the opening ceremony...rather figure out where to stash super sized weapons, then make a mad dash for a speech....

Can foresee another makeup session in the hotel restroom. Good thing I don't have to bind for my early friday costume. That would be nuts to do in a restroom.

Well, what do you know, someone who went to the Zoo last year. We're thinking about skipping most of Friday now, maybe come durring the later portion of the afternoon, peraps more towards early evening, we haven't quite decided yet. Anyways, MarzGurl was informed of a great tragedy earlier. There is a 90% chance that I will be forced to use a different mask this year for the monster due to reasons beyond my control. If all goes well, I'll retrieve the mask, if not, I'm going to be hard pressed to find a suitale replacement mask. Eitherway, I'll be there in one mask or another. If you didn't get hugged last year, make no mistake I will hunt you down and hug you this year. 'Kay? ^_^

I always liked going to the opening ceremonies. I missed Oni-con's last year but went to Ushicon's and it was fun. It had good info and gets everyone, er, 'ready' for the con? XD I dunno, I like them. ^_^

As for school, skipping the whole day. I live in Chambers county so it's like 45 minutes or so to get there. Plus we are taking about five other people so we have to get all our stuff ready.

AHA! I knew it! 3:00 check in! For those of us who do wanna make it in early, well... just leave your luggage in the car, I s'pose. (Though I really don't trust leaving all my cosplay stuff in my car.)



Ah, which reminds me, I was in a rear-end collision a while back, and I just took my car in for repairs three days ago. Aparently, this repair job is going to take two weeks. Sounds terrible, right?

Wrong! This is awesome!

They put me in a rental vehicle - a 2005 Nissan Sentra, silver, very comfortable to drive, handles like a dream, accelerates like a terrified gazelle being chased by a hungry preditor. I'll still be driving it by the time Oni-Con comes around next week. Driving in with class!

I am going to be there all weekend, but not sure when we are going on Friday. I thought about leaving all of my cosplay goods and what not in the car as well and thought it would be fine. I guess not...? I dunno, most likely we will leave it there until we get our room. Maybe get our badges and what not. Can't wait! ^_^

Wrong! This is awesome!

How do you guys plan on checking into the hotel? I mean, for anyone under 21, as I read you must be 21 to check in. Which is inhibiting my friend's plans. And people who need a room can't get a room because they happen to be between the ages of 17-20. -___-

I am only 16 and all my friends are in that range that are going. But my mom and my friend's mom are paying for the hotel(as a 'sweet 16' birthday gift XD) so they will be checking in for us. I dunno about anyone else though. o.o Man, it will suck though when I am 17 or so going to cons alone and no one over 21 with me. >>;

Hey Basiik, I'm hotel legal so I'm going to have to check in my bud's friend Tristan.

Edit: misread what you said.

Anyone want to rent my brother for checkin purposes.

Hug the Monster, I remember what you look like, I always use to see your pics on MSN messenger. It sucks that you won't be able to use the same mask as last year, but maybe you could use it and say it is "similar" to the one you used last time. -hehe-

Question, though: is Oni-Con going to allow signs for Hug_The_Monster? Technically it's part of his cosplay, however it's not exactly a "legitimate" cosplay, and actually was another one of those on a whim signs, like all the rest of them being banned.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but... I'll miss the signs if only for Hug The Monster. For that reason, and that reason alone, just because he was so harmless and notorious over the course of three days.

R.I.P., Hug The Monster's Sign! (2004 - 2004)

Hug The Monster, if anything, was the biggest hit at Oni-Con (IMO). Even after the con, I heard people talking about him for a good while, and I believe he made a record for the number of hugs gotten, I could be mistaken. We should make a petition called "Let Hug The Monster keep his sign." And then put it on the forums, hehe. Anyway, just wanted to put my 2 cents out there.

Or one thing we could do is let him come on in with his sign, then run around the con with a petition sheet with a ton of signatures from people who want him to keep his sign, so when he takes his sign up to get checked they just can't say no.

Great idea Marzgurl, I would have never though of that. Now all someone has to do is figure out when to put this plan into action.

Leaving at 10:00 AM tomorrow. I'll be there between the hours of 1 and 2.

Oh, and I hear that the Opening Ceremonies have been pushed to 9:00 AM. That... really sucks. And I hate them all for that reason alone.
