The Anatole is an AMAZING hotel. It's absolutely huge and due to their relationship with the museum, it's got a walking art tour inside the building where they have real artwork (paintings, sculptures, etc) on display. One of the coolest features is the grounds they have outdoors by the gym/pool. It's nicely landscaped and absolutely gorgeous. Both lobbies are massive and there are all sorts of weird little hallways with neat architecture. I stayed there about a month ago to scope it out and was impressed.

Personally I hate the Sheraton (aka Adams Mark) so I have skipped Akon the last few years. With the move to the Anatole I am soooo there in 13.

I will likely be putting up the interactive map we made of the Anatole very shortly so that people can see it and make cosplay plans. NOTE: there is nothing on it labeled re: A-Kon layout plan. Everything on the map is labeled as the hotel has named it.

There is a chance I am attending this next year, so I am very interested in getting to know the cosplay crowd in Texas. As well as what talent I hope to work with =)

Nothing's solid yet, but I hope to have two different Ciel Phantomhive outfits, Ivan Braginski (AKA Russia) and hopefully one or two Ritsuka Aoyagi outfits.
Now I just need to find a Sebastian for my Ciel and a Soubi for my Ritsuka.

Ya.
I am a cosplayer and cosplay photographer. I mostly attend conventions in Florida and Georgia, but I have always wanted to attend something outside of those two states. It looks like I might have a way now.

I don't know the photographers or cosplayers that attend A-Kon so it should be an interesting experience. Assuming my plans hold up

Texas is a really far distance to travel from where you are, may I ask why you chose A-Kon?

I can't seem to go to katsucon and I have always wanted to go to a con that was beyond my typical radar. I know someone who is going that is a few hours from me so I only have to make half the drive personally.

I miss Katsucon. It used to be one of my favorites when I lived up that way. The only thing that sucked was how cold it could be and it made outdoor photo shoots a pain.

I am excited to see the new venue - I will probably drive down there and look around some time before the con since I'm local. As for costumes, I'm bringing two new ones and one old one!

America - Axis Powers Hetalia (for the panels I participate in)
Fix-It Felix, Jr - Wreck-It Ralph
Austrian Succession Austria - Axis Powers Hetalia

I'm planning to enter the last costume there in a craftsmanship competition at con.

Oh, well I guess that makes it easier if you're having someone to go with ^_^ I really hope you like it considering how far you're driving ^^ What costumes will you be bringing?

I've always wanted to go to Katsucon, I've heard SO MANY great things about it, but it is so far away. I did make it out to Otakon one year, so eventually I'll make it to Katsu, but I will definitely plan on fully covered, warm, cosplays XDD Cuz it's in February right?
