View Full Version : What is THE thing to do @ A-Kon?

02-07-2003, 01:46 PM
This will be my 2nd A-Kon...the first time I only went one day and spent most of it taking pictures and talking with all the groovy people there. This time around I want to check out the other features of the con. What does everyone recommend?

I would say you HAVE to play DDR with me..hehe :juggler:

hehe, last year my favorite activity was the yaoi panel which turned into all-night movie room...but that might not be your kind of thing *eg*

Movies are always a good thing! I will have to check that out. By the way I used to work in Plano all the time. Hopefully I can meet some of you fellow North Texans at this con too since I am relatively new to the whole cosplay scene!:skidude2:

Heh heh... what to do at Akon? I usually spend the time hanging out with friends, meeting new people, and taking pictures. ^_^;;; I've been to Akon's masquerade almost every year, and it's ok. Not great, and not highly recommended, but it's ok. Err... yep. There are actually a whole lot of cosplayers in the north Texas area. It's pretty cool.

Dealer's room. That's where I am most of the time, watching my money go *poof*. Heh.

Game rooms are fun, especially the DDR one. Ask Celine, I was in the DDR room a LOT ar Ushicon. She got to see me suck and almost collapse from Afronova ^_^.

I don't like video rooms, I get claustrophobic in them.

I spent some time in the dealer's room last year and it was a little overwhelming...I might have to take a small loan out this year:D

A storm trooper on DDR? Now that would be funny...and not too comfortable with plastic armor pinching me here and there :(

So I have down movie rooms, masquerade ball, dealer's room, & taking pictures as things to check out during the day. Now are there parties at night or things to do after hours too?

Masquerade = costume contest, not a dance. :)

But there IS a dance afterwards :p. I will be in attendance, of course, complete with glowsticks. I don't leave home without them. XDDDDD

thats a good list you got there ;)

Yeah pretty good list...well accept #1 cuz i dont think its too likely to happen --v

But definately check out duel jewel~ Their show at katsucon was awesome, and I believe they'll be doing the same type of thing at a-kon - regular concert and an accoustic concert ~ so if you miss one, there's always the other ^^

Duel Jewel's show last year was AWESOME! I was in the very very front! *sigh* Oh well, I hope to get that close agian this year.

You MUST go to the dealer's room and the game rooms....they're sooo much fun! I mostly took pictures and walked through the dealers room. It's sooo much fun, so don't worry there's always something to do there.
