Yeah, it's in August, I know. But there was gonna be an Otakon thread eventually so whatever.

So... who's going? :D I'm going with my older brother and his friend, my little bro and my mom. (My mom's not going to the con but she wanted to chaperone... ^_^;;) We're stayin' in a hotel this year which is FANTASTIC 'cuz having to drive up each morning was no fun at all... :/

I'll be cosplaying the characters in my signature. Yes, I'm once again cosplaying Katamari Damacy. Whatever. :P And Temperance (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0903/SuperMo0/Photos/Of%20Rachel/29b036d0.jpg)is reallyreallyreally cute and I can't wait to get started on it! ^_^ :O is it possible to spirit gum velcro to yourself? I'm trying to make up a method of attatching wings made of paper.

This year's gonna be great! XD There's the seprate hotel for masquerade and all the goodies that makes Otakon freakin' awesome. I'm so giddy! ^_^

...oh geez, I gotta pre-register first!

First time I've been excited about Otakon in a long time. Already pre registered and have crash space. Will be cosplaying Schuldig from Weiss Kreuz Kapitel. Might go as Manga Schu if I can figure out the whole wearing an open vest without getting arrested thing. Will have a Farferello and possibly Youji with me. Deicde on other costumes closer to August.

Thought they were holding the Masquerade at 1st Marnier arena. Hopefully that will take care of some of the crowding.

I want to see Miso! Never thought someone would try Miso, but he's one of my favorates. I'm planning on bringing my Peso costume and I definitely want to get a picture with you!

Yeah, I haven't pre-regged yet, but I'm definitely planning to bring Tails (Sonic Riders) and Peso and probably a couple others which I haven't started on yet...

YAY! Weiss Cosplay~!!


I'm going. I'm gonna be doing Jirou from Prince of tennis and PJ!Sakura from Naurto. I don't know what other costuems yet. If I get my CardCaptor sakura costume done then I'll wear that. But That costume is going to be perfect before i wear it to a con.

Masqurade in a different place? I'm gonna be in the Masqurade...and even though I've been to Otakon for the past 2 years I haven't even been the the masqurade!

Bagu is solid for Otakon, with a first by staying at a hotel a couple of blocks from the con rather than commuting each day from DC

Yup yup! I'm gonna fix it up before then, of course. I got some pitchers real cheap at Target. Gotta spray paint 'em! Plus I gotta do the wig. But right now I'm Temperance'd out and I want to think about another costume >_>

I'm planning on 2 or 3 cosplays. Most likely only 2 since I haven't found a wig I want for the third.

I already have the Otakon days off from work~ And I have my room and ride to Baltimore, since road trips are fun. ^.^ I just have my pre-reg to take care of this week and have to start saving money for the convention and start working on my costumes. I'm not entirely sure what I'll be doing, since my list has been changing for Gackt knows how long. I'd get into a series, then change my list. My friend will get into a series, then I have to change my list again. lol, I wish we could make up our minds already.

Bringing 3 versions of Schuldig the Kapitel Green jacket, all white from the artbook, and manga version. Friend also made a version of Farferllo from a fan fic, and I'll flip through my dojins and find a costume idea there.

I'm bringing 6 (probably more) costumes, and the others will be more suited for a summer con. It all depends on having the room and lugging everything from work to Baltimore. I'll be leaving work at 3:30 and arriving in Baltimore who knows when.

Found an old Mastermind pin [British quiz show] and am trying to use it with my cosplay(s)

My head is just spinning with ideas for Otakon, and last year I was thinking that Ota 05 would be my last.

Gogglegirl
05-02-2006, 07:11 PM
Schuldig~! YAY! I'm gonna find you and talk to you at this con...cause I failed at Katsu (I was prbably standing right next to you and didnt' even know it...)

makotohanabi
05-02-2006, 08:31 PM
You still have my number? Just give me a call, sorry I didn't call you during Katsu again.

Have old pics of Schu, I'll post them before Otakon. Need to find the usb cord for my camera.

I can't wait for Otakon...its going to be a lot of running around for me (esp. friday....3 costumes...) but its going to be so much fun~!!!

ArgentD

This is going to be my first Otakon. I think I'm bringing at least 4 costumes, possibly more. Which is actually my personal record for costumes.

Saxinthehall
05-31-2006, 11:56 PM
Gah! I still need to pre-reg for Otakon. I'll be doing that soon, and by soon I mean in two or more weeks. Days before the deadline perhaps.

You would think that I would have done that sooner since this is my first time going.

Procrastination is a time honored tradition among cospalyers, embrace it. You have a month or so until rate goes up (think it goes up on 7/4), no rush.

At katsucon 05 I did 4 changes in a day Kikyou, Schuldig, Aya chan, and Schuldig. Never again.

Found the last pieces of ova Schuldig, debating whether or not to bring it to Ota or save it for AUSA.

How many people will be there Thursday? Depending on when I get to Baltimore I'll probably be around as casual Schu (think Kapitel sans jacket) or something that doesn't require a wig.

Then I guess I'm going to fit in just fine being a cosplayer as I procrastinate a lot.

I'll be at Otakon with probably just one costume and responsible for 3 others... Got a group of friends with me and we'll be wandering around all Saturday as Street Fighter characters. I'd hang with them Friday but my birthday's the following week and my boyfriend is taking me somewhere Friday night. And I live 2 hours from Baltimore so it'll be a lot of driving that day...

While I'd love to go to Otakon, I've been trying to set up with a few friends of mine, it looks like I'm once again going ot have no ride to Otakon, in effect making it no Otakon at all :(. And I dont think my mom would be comfortable with just letting some random stranger drive me, I wonder why, heh. Question, does anyone live in the Stafford Virginia area?

I'm trying to go to Otakon, but being a broke college type person I can't justify it. I've applied to do a panel actually, so hopefully that will give me a good excuse to go, if they want me! >.>

I am going. Heya Bagu can't wait to meet people. Do people sell old costumes and assesories at Otakon?

Bagu
07-06-2006, 11:32 AM
Not that I've seen, though you can probably pick up some tips at one of the panels, or maybe chat with a random cosplayer you see.

3 weeks to go!!!!! Everyone ready?

(probable) final line up. Manga Schuldig (Friday), Kapitel Schuldig(Saturday), and white artbook Schuldig (Sunday).

Thinking about bringing ova Schuldig, and if I can finish it on time (love/hate relationship with overtime) panda Schuldig. Thusday leaning toward casual Schuldig (sans jacket) or pink kimono Haku, depends on if I want to deal with a wig. Probably arrive in Baltimore sometime after 7pm.

I'm so excited for Otakon...except it brings sooo much stress. Its the most stressful con ever. I have a bunch of stuff to finish. I only have half of my costumes done. I've got one that all i need to do is find a shirt for...but unfotunately i can't find the right kind. And For my TJ Sakura....cutting the toes off of leather boots is not fun....

but YAY~! otakon~!!

On the plus side I'm getting used to being in the heat so hopefully I'm not going to die. I don't have too much to do, make an Ouran tie, make a see though heart eyepatch, and bake heart shaped cookies and bread (or buy some before the con)
