Ooh, I wonder what the pricing structure will be like since it is expanded to a 3 day convention. I missed last year because of a Board Retreat, but I will definitely be there this year.

My guess is that I don't think (Wrist bands) will be $12-$15 anymore. With the attendance jumping up to 45,000 people in 2012, Comikaze Expo has a lot more (GOH) & Special Guests that have been coming so to pay for them - Price must go up a little bit - to say $18-$22 a (Wrist band) plus by adding another day onto the Schedule thats another day to pay for Con Space so (Price) goes up.

I (HOPE) Comikaze Expo does (BADGES) this year, I want something to remember my Experience not just a wrist band that I throw away at the end of the weekend... I do admit I saved last years wrist band...

They need to do something about the lines..
(Year 1) lines were not to bad - although it was their first year and i was there pretty early.. it just was not organized , such as everyone was being told to go into one line, when in reality they had 2 different lines formed (Pre-Reg & Reg) but everyone was being told to go into the (Reg) when they already had a (Pre-reg) so i ended up waiting an extra hour because of this miss-communication.

(Year 2) was just ALL around Horrible. They should have formed a Handicap line and a reg line and had them organized (NOT) scattered all of the place like (Ants not knowing which way to go) - this was for the (Pre-Reg) line.. I waiting 2 half hours on (Day 1). (Day 2) I took my Brother in law, we just walked in right to the (reg) and grabbed our wrist band in 10 seconds (was not Pre-reg for day 2) BIG DIFFERENCE in time waiting LOL. so it is either - Pre-reg and get the good rate or wait and just buy at door for little extra money but (No Line)

Comikaze Expo Needs to use BOTH Halls for (Dealers Halls) *Downstairs* like they did in Year 1 and also *Upstairs* like they did (Year 2) they are getting way to big to only have 1 room for Dealers Hall.

Amazing this will be Comikaze Expo's 3rd year already (WOW) time has gone by quick!

I will attend this year again and I hope i enjoy my self better than last year.. I will prob only attend 1 day of the 3 - cause for me There just is not enough to do there for a 3 day stay.. almost was a waste going for 2 days last year but i took brother in law he had NEVER been a convention and he enjoyed it very much! his first cosplayer he saw when we showed up was (Sonic the Hedgehog) just outside the Convention Center.

Super excited about Comikaze this year! Went the first two years and had a blast, even with that line in the second year.

I'll be going with a small group of genderbent DBZ villains. Hoping we can get a DBZ gathering going! I'll be making a Frieza costume.

Not 100% sure of my other two costumes. Got a few ideas and maybes in mind.

I know this is pretty far in advance, but would anyone be down for an Adventure Time gathering? I'll be wearing Prince Gumball on Saturday, along with a Lemongrab
