Who else is waiting for the schedule release in order to help plan their con?

recalling 2007's lackluster panels and presentations, practically explosive schedule mistakes, cancellations, and changes, I'm taking the silence from otakon.com's panel list posting department to be extra attention going towards the best schedule possible. This year, I want to have most of my weekend planned out before I even cross the Delaware Memorial Bridge (Jersey brothers and sisters what what).

I'm looking for a totally boss selection of panels this year. Anybody else eagerly awaiting this release of news? Possibly for cosplay purposes? What'd you think about 2007's selection versus earlier ones?

We have a rough outline of what we would like to do but we also tend to go by the seat of our pants. (that is to say my friend and I)

Chances are I'll peruse the list to see what should be there. Cause sometimes they just play musical-panels with the at-con schedule.
But I do all my plotting Thursday night when I can't sleep.
All I know is that I need to get Peter S. Beagle's autograph, and I'd really love to attend his panel if he has one. Other then that, and the few meet-ups here on c.com, it's all up in the air till friday.

So many NJ ppl. Which i guess is cool since my roomie is one of people from NJ

Also-" Verrazano Bridge/Holland Tunnel represent", your still cool SanaK cause your an awesome person! Why are all the awesome cosplayers I know so far away :P

Richmond, Va representing here! Which isn't much since most VA people are from outside DC or VA Beach lol.

I'm going to wing it, i usually only go to guest panels at small cons i go to, this is my first ota, and im guessing most of those will be full seat wise, so i'll be winging it walking around.

I use to live in Chambersburg, PA, next to Shippensburg university, not to far from Lancaster. I thought only Amish lived in that area of PA and not cosplayers? :P ^^

It is the same thing for me every year:

1. I pre-plan cosplay gatherings.
2. The schedule comes out.
3. I cry for two hours after learning that the coolest events are right over my gatherings. x.x
4. I end up at the con just winging everything anyway. XP


Never fails... XD

(Central PA, representing! XD)

PA is mad chill, I'm actually coming with two crews: I'm bringing my NJ crew and my PA crew will be located at another base. VA works fine. I'm really hoping the panels are face-meltingly awesome to make up for last year.
