Never said I spent tons of money on cons. Fortunate to work at some, and have birthday's/tax returns to help with the others. It isn't hard to make going to a local convention less expensive, also.

I second the above. I pre-reg early as often as I can and I've just started to volunteer hosting panels for the local conventions to my area this year.

Also Metrocon will have the registration tiers online once that is set up, if you lock in early it's only $30 compared to say $45/50-ish. Better to paypal sooner than pay more later.

I'll be there for sure. =D We're finishing up My Darcia and Jagara, also Hamona. x3 Dunno if Cheza can make it or not, but it will be a super detailed group. (3 hours alone on one of Jagaras armor peices. >> )

Also, we're maybe brining the beast. xD Leviathan, 20 foot long, dragon costume. Roy still has to get back to me on rules and the likes. o_o;

Oh oH! Hosting this year- Anime Clue! =D If we can secure rooms, it will be a live action clue game with anime themes instead of 30's. x3 Fun fun, you should all go~

It is usually on a Sunday and in the past it has run into the late afternoon (around 5 pm). I hope that helps you out. I think you should check out the Anime Human Chessmatch for your 1st Metrocon, it's just awesome. Oh and if you're not staying at a nearby hotel you might have a bit of a hike to the convention center. Tampa can be worse than Miami when it comes to parking, trust me, if you are not staying in a hotel nearby leave time to find parking in your plans.

Oooh, you're the one with the Anime Clue, Eclipseofsorrow? I'll have to make sure our panels aren't at the same time, I wanna see that!

And, it's amazing, but I've already started work on Whose Line Is It Anime. That means no stalling because I have no games thought up. XD

More details on the costume contest, I have both judged and participated in the MetroCon costume contests, and here's the run-down.

Pre-judging normally begins on Sunday around 11am-12pm. You will be assigned a number and wait in line, go in, talk with the judges and have your costume examined for roughly 2 minutes tops. If like at MetroCon: Amano's World, there may be a panel before the judging starts for you to ask questions, get information on line-up and pre-judging, etc. Line-up times will definately be provided in any case so you know when and where to line-up for the stage presentation.

That hotel is brand spanking new, it was under construction last year. You just walk over the sky bridge to the convention center. Much more convenient. I'm thinking of booking at least Saturday there (though it is a bit pricey). I remember other years walking over the old bridge in heels(especially for Masquerade) and now I won't have to walk so much.

Thank you both so much for the input! It really helps. Most of my friends are skipping Metro for AX or haven't been at all, so it's nice to get some feedback.

I think I'm in for Metro this year...since I'll just be doing research over summer, I should be able to take some time off and drive over to Tampa. This'll be my first time attending Metrocon!

As to what costumes I'll bring, hmmm. Hopefully my Utada will be done...and this will likely be the debut con for my (currently)secret YamaPi costume (unless I get it done before AnimeSuperCon)! When it gets closer I'll know what other costumes will come along for the ride.

I'm actually skipping Expo for Metrocon. Expo last year was just horrible and I'd rather give it a break than go again and be upset from the year before. Plus I have obligations at this years Metrocon. It should be fun, and I'm thinking it's going to be worth it.

See both of you there.

As for Metrocon, it's also one of the nation's larger conventions but what makes it interesting are all the different events. Largest and best FL con, imho.

Ohhhh!! Awesome ^^

I haven't been to Metrocon yet, so I'm hoping it's a lot of fun! I hear it's a blast.
