Who plans on going?

I am just curious how many people here are considering going. Doesn't have to be a for certain, even just thinking about it!

For me, I am considering it. I am hoping to go at least 1 or 2 days, if I have enough money and my Sakura cosplay done by then (if not, I shall go as Mayushii).

Sounds like it'll be a fun con! I'm sure it's smaller than AX, so it'll be a nice little change.

PMX is A LOT smaller than AX, yes. The size is about on par with Anime Los Angeles.

I might go, but I'm not sure yet. I don't really have much incentive right now, so it'll partially depend on what guests are announced over the next few months. I'm no longer staffing it because I needed to reallocate my time for college. (When I think about it, if I end up not going this year, it'll be the first PMX I -haven't- been to since the con started...)

yes, I decided practically the day after AX that I was going to be making an ANBU cosplay for me and my boyfriend I needed another thing to look forward to once AX was over. lol

Yeah I believe they are around a 3,000 people con from what ive heard, is that right?

One thing I love about PMX is that they announce their guests early enough for you to actually plan to see them, and know what you are buying a badge for

they have a handful of people announced already

Roughly, possibly more. It's less than 5,000, though I don't think they've publicly released a 2011 attendance count.

Yeah, but I'm not interested in any of them. ^^; So I'll keep waiting to see what other guests or events are announced.

I'm not sure, but it'd be nice to go. Does anybody know if they have any cosplay contests?

Yes, they have a masquerade. The top few awards come with cash prizes. There's also likely to be swag of some type for winners, stuff like figurines, manga, T-shirts, free con badges (to PMX or to other cons), etc.

As a Pacific-Asian media event, the PMX masquerade is much more inclusive than the typical anime con. In addition to the typical "anime and Japanese video games" costumes, people sometimes enter with stuff like J-rock costumes, original themed lolita outfits, K-pop, Avatar: the Last Airbender, and so on.

Cool! Thanks for all the information, it was really helpful!
