Skxawng- I hear ya, me too. Barely enough time to work on the costume :/ But D*C is THE con I go to each year, it's soo expensive but so worth it. I travel from NY to get there. At least we'll get to see pics though!
And yea, the hotel situation is insane... I called the minute they opened up hotels for the con, and the main hotel was sold out within 10 min (and it's got like 60 floors..)
Anyone who's done with costumes, I'd LOVE to see pics!! There aren't enough cosplays on the internet, I've seen all I could find! lol. I'm sure there will be tooooooooonnsss soon though..
