I hope I can return this year to Nekocon, since I haven't been there since 2004 and I wanted to see the new convention center they had it at last year. Since Yaoi-con (which usually happens the weekend before Nekocon) is on Oct. 20-22, that'll give me a little breathing room of 2 weeks rather than back-to-back conventions. :thumbsup: So we'll see what happens come the Fall. :)

I'll very likely be there. :D No clue what I'm cosplaying, but probably both of my Otakon costumes (see sig XD) and a new one.

You should come!! :toothy: We all want you to!

And I'll be coming again this year! Probably bringing my Aeris (FF7), Rosette (Chrno Crusade) and Xelloss (Slayers. If I have him done) costumes. But you never know because it's so far in advance! My plans will probably change!

Unless something horrible happens, I'll be going ^_^ I'll be at Yaoi-con two weeks prior but I did the back to back thing last year and actually survived XD Flew back to NC on Wednesday and drove up to VA on Thursday. Weee! Ah the things we do for conventions and cosplay...

I should be going though ^^ Tentative plans..eh maybe Kougaiji from Saiyuki Reload, Edward from FMA, and whatever else I decide to pull out of the closet.

Tess
04-17-2006, 11:02 PM
... Maybe. AUSA is my priority in the fall, but I wouldn't mind hitting up Nekocon as well. Depends on financial circumstances at the time, and whether I know anyone that's going. ^___^; If I were to go, my costume list would probably include Aeris [Advent Children], Alexiel [Angel Sanctuary], Karin [Shadow Hearts: Covenant], and a few different BLEACH costumes [possibly the debut of Gin].

I'm going to try my best to be there, but it's about an hour away so I have to find a ride and a chaperone willing to put up with an anime convention =P but if I do go you can expect to see a Misa from Deatnote ^_^.

I'd like to go. I've missed the last couple and I miss it. It was the first con I ever went to and I kinda miss it.

dollssoulkirie
05-02-2006, 01:48 AM
There's a possibility that I'll be able to make Nekocon this year, since I have to miss two cons this year because of work and it's stupidness. As for costumes, it'll depend on what my friends would like to do. I usually try to group/duo with people, since I don't want to be a loner sometimes.

dollsoulkirie, where in Suffolk do you live? I live in the same city and am hoping to go to Nekocon as well. (It would be my first cosplay, the pressure!)

05-18-2006, 02:33 PM
I'm hoping to go. It'll be my 4th Nekocon.

Lycoris
05-19-2006, 07:48 AM
I might come... depending on if I have a ride, room, money, and who else is going. It would be fun to see since I've never been to this con before.

As for costumes... hopefully I'll bring Miles 'Tails' Prower plus whatever else I have done at the time.

Bagu
05-19-2006, 12:29 PM
I will try. I'm setting a goal to visit as many of the local cons as possible for 2006 (even though I totally missed Katsucon this year > < )

Costuming_Fiend
06-04-2006, 07:29 PM
I'm going, this will be my third year attending. It's a fairly small con, so be warned. Though they expanded the size last year. Sometimes the staff can be a bit...anime-phobic. Basically, most of the staff is just very paranoid about the stereotype anime lovers who spazz and end up breaking things. But you'll be fine if you don't go around trying to be suspicious. ;) Hehe. I've enjoyed it, their raves, aka "Neko/Robot Dances" are fun. (One of the best parts in my opinion ^^) Tis a fun con, it's worth going to. Were it not, I wouldn't have gone the passed two years. ^_^

dollsoulkirie, where in Suffolk do you live? I live in the same city and am hoping to go to Nekocon as well. (It would be my first cosplay, the pressure!)

I live near the Chesapeake/Portsmouth/Suffolk border, just down the street from the Wal-Mart near the Portsmouth campus of TCC.

First cosplays are fun! My first was at Otakon, dressing up as a Samurai Deeper Kyo costume.

Well.. possible cosplays for Nekocon are~
Rinali from D.Gray-man
Rena from Star Ocean EX/2nd Story
Rita from Suikoden IV/Tactics
Alice from Shadow Hearts Covenant

Princess_Hotaru
06-13-2006, 10:36 AM
I may be going. I dunno though! If I do go, I might not cosplay as anyone. It just depends on what I have done. :[

06-22-2006, 10:08 PM
I'll be there with a huge group of first con ppl.

Myself and 2 friends are doing Nittle Grasper. Two of the members are male and the other is female. So of course we're all female hehehehe. I'm Ryuichi, and my best bud in the world is Tohma and the one we're dragging along who hates gay guys and has never even seen the anime is playing the female Norika. Its so sweet to have a con in my hometown BWHAHAHAHAHA right after I cry to my friends to get the outfit right. I hate havign long hair.....>.<

i might be there, it depends if i can get everything together for it. but i really would LOVE to go, get to wear the thick coats in acutally COLD weather rather then in summer XD almost died from Cosplaying i swear @,@

Emeraldwolf
06-27-2006, 09:46 PM
Best advantage of going to William and Mary is being so close to Nekocon. ^_^ This will be my fourth Nekocon, and that con still remains my favorite.
Cosplaying--definately my KH: CoM Riku costume, hopefully with the Soul Eater if its done by then
maybe a repeat of Mononoke from last year, I loved that costume.

CatscratchEmo
06-29-2006, 11:18 AM
Nekocon is only about 10 to 15 minutes away from where I live; of course, of course I'll be there! I might even be able to complete a Rena costume before then, if I can get someone to order me some Wonderflex...<.< And I'm vowing to actually take pictures this time x.x;;;

NecromanticChii
07-03-2006, 07:01 AM
I am possibly going this year. I am planning on moving down to Virginia Beach, so I wont be horribly far from it. Plus a couple people I know who live down in VA will be going.

Mana P. Malice
07-04-2006, 11:06 AM
AWESOME... anyone live in the chesapeake area? i like going to cons in groups!

I'm in the Chesapeake area...Western Branch...>_<

I'm still having indecisions over my costumes...I'll have to get back to ya'll on that.

07-24-2006, 10:03 AM
This'll be my second con I'm attending, coming from Raleigh :)

I'll be taking my only two costumes I have:
Bleach - Shunsui
Narutard - Itachi Uchiha

myaku_
08-06-2006, 11:16 PM
Yay, Nekocon~

I will, of course, be coming. I probably will be helping my boyfriend run his Artist Alley table, so I guess it'll be easy to find me.

As for costumes- no idea. So far:
Jinx from Teen Titans
Gekiai AYA from Psycho le Cému
*hopefully* Queen of Cosmos and Halloweentown Sora...

I'm always up for surprises ^o^

Finding Beauty
08-14-2006, 08:30 PM
As far as I know, I'm going, staying in the main hotel, and in talks right now to run a couple of panels. (Which reminds me that I need to get back to someone on that ...)

Right now I'm REALLY undecided on what I'll be cosplaying. If we go Bleach, then I'll be doing Orihime in her Soul Society garb, or possibly Ishida in Quincy attire. We're doing a Soul Calibur III group, but I'm sitting around stressing over which character to be--Seong Mi-na, Taki, or Xianghua. -.-;

I'll probably run a brief stint as Ryuichi since my oh-so-loving boyfriend got me Kumagoro for my birthday. ^_^ I'm also in consideration for a J-rock cosplay, but I don't know what, yet.

So, the only thing I know for sure is that I'll be reprising Vincent.

NecromanticChii
08-15-2006, 06:49 AM
I am going. I should be living in VA by october...so yes Nekocon is on...lol

I might cosplay, but I am not sure. I don't know how many cosplays I will take with me when I move, since it is a long drive. I might take 2-3 of them. ^_~

Nekocon has grown quite a bit. I've never been to Anime Boston, but I would say Nekocon is ALMOST as big as Katsucon, but not quite there yet. Plus they moved it to some convention center with a ton of space, so that probably makes it feel even smaller. I've always enjoyed Nekocon, I've gone in 1999 (it was VERY small then, just its second year, I think), 2000, 2002, 2003, and 2004.

The hubby and I plan to be there again this year, as soon as we confirm on a room situation. I only know of two costumes I'm doing so far, but they are both pretty obscure so I won't bother with details. XD

NecromanticChii
08-18-2006, 03:23 PM
How many people would you say go to Nekocon? (Or have in the past years.)

Arlette

Oh, I don't know. A few thousand maybe. It's not ginormous like Otakon or anything if that's what you're worried about. I'm bad at guessing on numbers like that, especially when I didn't go last year, but it looked to me (just from seeing con pictures) that attendance might have gone down a bit. Either that, or it was just because they were in such a huge area.

I like small(er) cons like Neko and AMA and AnimeUSA. They rule.

You're about right with the numbers, but I don't think attendance went down. There were really a lot of people there, maybe more than the year before, however, the new con centre really spaced us out.

08-18-2006, 10:50 PM
I went last year as Chibi usa with my sister who was Usagi, that was really fun so im definitely planning on going this year.

I think i'm going as Advent children Tifa, although i'm not to sure on how to make (or start) the costume. Should be fun though ^^. Otherwise i'm going to be ffx-2 rikku!

SaChan
08-19-2006, 10:25 AM
Oh! I didn't know about this con, or that it was in VA! What's this con like? I don't know about going this year(financial reasons and all the such) but if it is worth it, I'd like to check it out ^^

Then it seems more like the conventions I am familiar with. (I have never been to Otakon, or any other convention about 4-5thousand people.)

I can't wait for Nekocon to come around.

BTW This will be my third neko 1st had a few pics taken, 2nd had 1 pic takin outta costume, this year i made a break out in cosplay so im hopeing to be a more head figure at this convention this year. Im shy and such but for some reason in cosplay im easy going and love the attention, look for me.

Unico
09-26-2006, 01:40 PM
I actually get to go this year!!! I've worked retail for the past eight years and they have never let me off. I've changed to overnights and I can finally go. I'm so excited cause I've heard that this is one of the better smaller cons. YAY!!! I'm going to wear my Deedlit costume and Cheetara. I might break out my Tira one last time not sure though cause I'm limited car space.

10-03-2006, 11:37 AM
I'll be there. I'm thinking I'll bring Utena and Umi from Rayearth (If she turns out well). I am actually going for the entire time this year, so that should be fun. Yay for the Embassy Suites!

EnigmaticAngst
10-07-2006, 12:07 AM
Yeah, I'm going again this year with several friends. We have a Bleach & Soul Calibur III group planned and shall be staying at the Embassy.

I will be there Lord willing as Captain Tylor with my usual Ultraman plushie. I also want to try and wear my Zidane costume at some point. >^.^<

arashialexander
10-15-2006, 08:27 PM
Hmmm? the ultraman plushie looks familiar from dragon con. I went here last year just for a day. Attending this year is still up in the air though. i'll be sure i will make it as the con approches and depending what goes on with school and such.

10-17-2006, 08:18 AM
Well after missing Animazement (and last years Neko for that matter) the good 'ole "Drunken Priest" has managed to pull off the amazing feat of getting time off WITH money ( new job, love the cash, hate the hours) and is going to enjoy returning to Nekocon. Undecided If im going to cosplay or not as I have to reserve at a outside hotel (anyone tell me how far the Red Roof Inn is?, I know it says about a mile but is that straight distance or is it placed near the convention center?) So I believe I will just attend as an attendee....still will prob bring the sauce though :skidude2:

SEE YA IN LIKE 17 DAYS!!!

NecromanticChii
10-17-2006, 12:28 PM
Since I only have a couple weeks, and my costume needs to be taken on a plane, I think I am going to make a simple Lacus Clyne (Gundam Seed Destiny) outift. (If I can re-style the Lacus wig I have.

Who knows, if nothing else I may attend as a cat girl, but I would rather get a new cosplay done. ^_~
