Aww, I'm awesome people! ^^
Sorry for all my silence. Trying to not fail midterms right after weeks of crunch time cosplay work overriding homework makes for a very busy week.
@crashdown - one of the great parts of this site is you pretty much never have to go to a con alone! You can use the boards to chat up other people with similar cosplay/nerd interests and then hang out once you get there. =)
