MetroCon 2010 (July 23 -25) YEAR 8

So~ MetroCon will take place on July 23rd to the 25th. Whose excited already?? I am, that's for sure. ^_^

Anyone already started on their plans for it? Costumes, rides, hotels, ect.?

MetroCon's Website has announced the theme (Samurai vs. Ninja) and info for Chess Match, Star Party, and Masquerade. (For the thread solely about that, go here.)

Pre-registration for weekend pass and maque ticket is now available as well as hotel reservations.

I'm sooo excited for Metrocon. XD I had such an awesome time this year/last Metrocon, even if everything did run late, lol. And I've actually got two of my costumes pretty much set in stone already.

I'm so happy everyone (so far) is so excited!! ^__^ Just like you all, I'm super excited. I've been planning to go back since 2009's ended. XD I always do because I love Metro so much.

Ah, yes. Last minute craze. XDDD It seems that I'm always doing this for Metro. In all of my four years going, I can't remember a single time that I wasn't doing last minute stuff in the hotel the night before. Hopefully that won't happen this year. I've got one of my three planned costumes down and starting on the next I think I can squeeze the third in so we'll see. ^_^

We have had hotel figured out on Sunday of last year for this year. Like we already had what type of room we're getting, who's all staying, how much each person is chipping in and everything. this is the most planned I've been in all the 4 years I've been haha. Which is still kinda sad.

I'm stoked! I love Metro! Last year was great! I have no idea if this year can top it though, last year was reallllly good.

I agree, last year's Metro was one of my best con experiences ever!
And this time around, I think I'm actually going to get a hotel room for Thurday night as well as for Friday and Saturday. Still trying to figure out who'll be staying with me though, it all depends. But I want to get there as early as possible on Friday, because there is no way that I'm gonna be standing in a registration line for almost 2 whole hours again. >.<

As for my current cosplay schedule, I plan on being Cosmos from Final Fantasy Dissidia all day Friday, and Wallmarket Aerith for the Masquerade at night. On Saturday, I'll be FFVII Tifa and another version of Aerith (most likely either FFVII or Crisis Core) for my friend's Final Fantasy panel, and maybe Elena of the Turks for a different panel if I can get changed quickly enough. I'm planning on doing Sheryl Nome's red dress version for the raves on both Friday and Saturday night. Not completely sure about Sunday. I might just be Tifa or Aerih again, or maybe Nico Robin from One Piece if I bring that costume along. ^^

But more than anything, I'm most looking forward to seeing all of the awesome people I met at last year's Metro and all of my friends who live around the Tampa area!

Haha. It's not sad at all! XD I bought my ticket and hotel room in January last year. I get all that crap done early too! Metro's totally worth it. ^_^

And oh god, last year was fabulous. All the GW voice actors were just fantastic. *o*

I've done this for two of the four years I've been going and it is the smartest thing you can do. D: I always head out the Publix right by the con and hotel (Embassy, I mean) and pick up food for the whole weekend so I don't spend a ton of money on con food. ^_^ I get to relax and get settled in; finish any ridiculous, last-minute stuff. It's nice.

As for a cosplay schedule... Sunday is likely to change, but I'll be Sumeragi Subaru on Friday, Xion on Saturday and Riku (Organization version) on Sunday. If I manage to finish her, I might do Belgium instead of Riku. ^_^

I got an email from Alex mentioning the con dates. I hope they get the website back up soon and get the news out. I'm going to be taking summer classes this year and I need to know the audition and practice dates.

MetroCon is only 3 days but as AlexXIII said, some people including myself, like to get there a day early. I've found that Friday everyone's trying to cram into the elevators and then rush down to the con. It's a pretty hectic day. XD

That's why I love going a day early. ^_^ <3

There's no greater birthday present than MetroCon. I hope you manage to go.
