Unexcited?

I dunno...

After going to Otakon recently, and now BAAF next week... I'm still Otakon'd out and am not that excited about BAAF at the moment.

I mean, shit, it's my birthday con, and right now I'm feeling like... bleh.

It's kinda hard to explain... Between having no sewing to do and school on the mind, it just doesn't feel like I've got a con coming up soon.

Any other similar feelings?

this is my first "hang around with boyfriend and other cosplayers" con. I was flippin out for anime boston, since it was all close and stuff. For Baaf, im going to sit and watch anime and take pictures and buy some stuff. Im going to try and be relaxed in my costumes, while still being excited about debuting new costumes.^^

Excited? U bet ur ass I am.

Maybe it's the fact that BaaF was my first con. Maybe it's the fact that it's the home con. Maybe it's because I'm a 2x panelistand a Guest this year. Maybe its because all four members of eWs ugly lil brother group, Team SI, will be in attendance. Or myabe it's the fact that I'm in the commericals for Baaf that CPM's been putting in all it's DVDs as of lat.

And best of all, AX wont be around to ruin it, haha

meh...

BAAF is the wide-down con before school starts. I'm only getting to go one day, so it just doesn't have the same excitement levels as Otakon....

*shrugs* I'm just going for the AMV's, Naruto Cosplay, and of course, Oshi's b-day.

I'm excited about this one. It's my first con and first cosplay. Plus, I don't have to spend a lot of money on hotels or transportation being as I only have to commute in each day. I'm looking foward to this a lot. But hey, everyone has their own opinion. I'm not a hardcore cosplayer and con-goer yet, so for me this is as good as it gets ^_^

I'm majorly excited for this one.. for BAAF I'm bring along a whole flock of kids from my school (most of the anime club, which also happens to be a good chunk of the fencing team too!) and most of them are eager to cosplay - which I think is super cool!

I'm getting together with one of my friends to help her sew a Rin (Inuyasha) costume, another is borrowing my black mage (which could be interesting because he's a good 5 inches taller than me!) someone else is completmenting my Mother Sophia, and so on. it's everyone's first con but myself, so it'll just be a totally different experience than Otakon - which may be why some aren't as eager as I am I suppose..

i think baaf is more of a con for locals. people come from all over the east coast to go to otakon but, baaf is really only for people who live in ny or 2-3 hours away. mabye if they add somemore stuff to the con like a dance and a real game room it would be better but as of right now it's just a chill con.

I go cuz its an excuse to go to NY and spend days living in the fabric district. Last year I missed the first day n half of baaf cuz I was too busy shopping XD Friends too of course. I got a few friends in Manhattan I only see at baaf unless I'm randomly visiting NY.

the only thing that I'm really excited about in terms of BAAF is going to New York (never been above York, PA) and getting to take a four day weekend from school. My costumes are all here, they're all ready. I have all the cash that I should need. There's no real preparation going on.
