athena-chan: haha, Thank you so much for switching our skit time back(CHinese Lion dance). xD Even then, our samurai was hella late because he stopped off at his darned Saiyuki panel. And- Your Tamaki cosplay dancing backstage before the costume contest FTW. xD I was amused atleast, but it made me wish I had nekozawa on at the time. And- you make a good Mori. o_O; Multi-talented. xDD

On the other note; I was dissapointed this year. I don't know what it was, but Metro-con just seemed so...not metro-coney. I really ended up spending more time in the hotel than anything else. Although, I did manage to get a paper airplane from floor 16 into the lobby fountain. ;D I don't think it was the con. so much as certain people I was hanging out with and what not. xD Oh, and our panels were mixed up for Anime Clue, and then after we FINNALY got all our actors signed up, Joe from Chaos Prod. Lost our clues, so we had to cancel anyways. =/

Uhm, Metrocon needed bigger rooms for a few panels, and with the costume contest, I questioned a few decisions they made. Ah well. x3 Oh, next year; have the contestents line up somewhere else. >__> People kept bumping into us near the front by the doors and one girls wings got bent.
Short version:
More panels. Bigger dealers room. Shorter/ more interesting Chess match(fell asleep twice ;>_> ) One side winning the whole time? Boooring.

I had fun at Metrocon! A lot of things went wrong for my friends and I, like injuries beforehand and then the hotel losing my cousin's suitcase with all of her costumes and everything else in it. We got it back late night Friday after the rave..they had put it in someone else's car and she was two hours away before she realized that she had the wrong bag and had to come back and switch it. The con itself was great.

The con did seem seem to have a different vibe compared to the past four years. We spent a lot of time at the hotel too. Watching everyone from the 16th floor was really entertaining. At what other hotel can you see girls with poofy skirts running around the halls with airsoft guns, Colonel Sanders carrying pizza through the lobby, and the king and queen of the Cosmos riding a glass elevator? Hahaha.

I had a blast at the con, though I was sad that the costume contest was on Sunday rather then Sat. I felt the contestents were kind of cheated, but *shrugs* just my own opinion.

The dealer's room was kind of small too compared to other years. ^-^

But I LOVED the Chess match!!! It was sooo awesome! I can't until next year!!!

Oh, and I was Winry and Kadaj for the con. ^-^ Although, the straps on my Kadaj messed up that morning so it was sort of off. T_T I was carrying mother though, so people semi-recognized me. I doubt I'll wear it in the summer anymore though. XD

It was my first metro and it was awesome ^.^ I'll be posting up pics soon enough when I get my CD. It was so much fun and I met so many people. This was really the best con I've been to. I'm definately going to next year's metrocon. And I really liked the events (especially the chess match) that was kickass.
By the way if anyone has pictures of me (I was Prisoner Rukia with the white zanpaktou and a Renji, too) please let me kno. Thanks ^.^

I took tons of pictures on Hotaru230's camera instead of mine, so once she gets those up i'll or she'll link ya.

for cosplays, at the Masq i was Helios going with a ChibiUsa, and then Matsuda from Death Note on Saturday.

Nyo~ So far, noone has any photos of me. ;o;

I wasn't there on Sunday, but I was there on Fri and Sat. I think I saw just about every L, Light, Ed, Roy, etc. I saw even some Magna Carta cosplayers there.

Awesome time again this year! Great seeing everybody, and a TON of very nice costumes.

I was unable to stay through the end of the costume contest on sunday. Who were the winners?

Holy crap! You were the Hsien-ko? I couldn't recognise you with the makeup on xD I was Nagase at Megacon, and I let you borrow my batons! And this year, I was the girl who walked to your table and slammed the female Lord Raptor figure on it, then apologized and walked away xD

Chief-Chan --- If I can make it to AFO Saturday, I'd love to get pictures of the DarkStalkers costume(not enough people cosplay it these days!). It sucks that I didn't have enough time this past weekend to go around and get pictures of everyone or even make it to the photosessions. I was just too busy helping alongside other MetroCon staff. :\
