I'm really excited! I've never been, so I hope it's as awesome as people say it is.
Good to see the Chrono Cross love is still going strong! I'll be roaming around as Riddel with a Kid on Friday morning. ^^

I'll make sure we mention your panel in ours, Pep, and encourage them to attend. Granted, I will likely be attending yours too, lol, provided I don't have conflict.

I've got 3 questions~ Please excuse me if they've already been asked.

#1 - Is there a pdf schedule out yet that's in timetable format like they've had for the past few years? I can't find one on their website.

#2 - Cosplay registration...if you're not doing any of the competitions, do you have to register your cosplay or can you just show up in it no problem? This is my first time cosplaying and I don't wanna get in trouble for not following rules.

#3 - What's the drama surrounding this year's con? I heard that people are upset at A-kon this year because it's dropping the ball some how. I've been 3 times and each time it was super amazing...what's different this time?

About to Pre-Reg for Akon! ^.^ Normally I would earlier but my friend just got the confirmation on their hotel room at the con hotel so I have made a decision to go. I need this after the disappointments for Anime Matsuri this year. Unfortunately my Princess Tutu costume got messed up in the dryer (too much heat despite putting it on the lowest setting =O, T.T) so I had to figure out cosplay stuff quickly, so I have decide to do this lineup:

Friday: Miku Magnet ver. (My friend is going as luka magnet)
Saturday: Tier 4 Wow Priest (I should finish it....)
Sunday: Either Alphonse Elric or Princess Tutu(if she is fixed so maybe)

I am SUPER excited about going! It will be my first year! Since I missed MegaCon here in Fl and my cousin couldn't fly down because he goes to school in Dallas we both decided to go to A-kon! Hopefully I will have my cosplay by then. ^^

One question...umm since its both out first time going is there anything we have to do? Like Pre-register? I know the cons I have gone to I have never had to do that...just bought the ticket at the door and what was it. <.< Just wanna know that way I don't look like a dork the day of.

You don't have to pre-register, you can buy your badge at the door too. If you're getting a 3-day pass, I'd recommend it, you can do that here.

I'm back to freaking out a little bit, cuz I just realized that I have 1 week less than I thought, cuz I'm going to be going with my mom back to Oklahoma to help her clean out her old house so she can try to sell it T_T So I've only got like 4-5 weeks to finish everything >_>

Freak out mode enabled. I have so much to get to work on! I've got a semi-finalized list of new cosplays for A-kon, and may mix in some old ones if I feel like changing a lot. Which I do.

New Ones:
Summoner Yuna (FFX)
Serge (Chrono Cross)
Mori & Tamaki (OuranHSHC)
Plus a surprise one I'm going to don as a favor. :3

Progress wise, I have the wig for Serge, sketched out the Mastermune onto my wood, have his t-shirt, boots, and a few other things done. As for Yuna, well.. I have everything bought. I just need to sit down and pleat the skirt so I can get to painting. I LOVE painting so that will fly by. And the Ouran boys, I just need to whip up my jacket, which is all cut out and waiting.

All in all, I need to scrounge up the money for three wigs, I think. If need be I'll cut Tamaki out and it'll be two. I'm wondering if I could another cosplay out of no where.. we'll see.

Add one more to the freaking out list. @_@ I have so much left to do yet. Soooooooo much left to do. I'm just going to go cry in a corner now (while painting something since I can't afford to waste time just crying).

Freaking out over here too. I've barely had time to work on anything this week, but I've gathered more supplies. I made some more progress on my new Elli top tonight, which was a huge relief. On the down side, I was thinking about bringing my Nayru costume to celebrate the fact that the Oracle games are being released in the 3DS eshop on the Thursday of A-Kon, but I found that some of my accessories were some how damaged in storage and I don't know if I'll have time to remake them. ;A;

I posted this about 18 hours ago and it still hasn't been approved. So I'll ask again...
Is there a PDF Timetable format for the schedule this year? I can't find one and I need teh infoz.

Edit: Never mind! They said on Twitter it'll be out around mid-May
