How many folks from here go to Otakuthon?

Just checking if this forum is as dead as the lack of topics imply --- or people just lurk. Since I'll be going there in 2011.

EDIT: OK --- I feel dumb and there's no delete thread button --- seems the forum default for threads showing is 1 month and my account was set to use that. Soooo --- this is pretty much a thread for folks like me who are just starting to join the cosplay scene and don't know a whole lot of folks in the events.

Planned cosplays for the event :

Megamind
Jellal Fernandes (Fairy Tail)
Still up in the air for the last one --- I might do something easy like Ethan Mars from Heavy Rain.

Usually the forum is more active during the months closer to the con I went last time and I'll be going again in 2011. I went with a few friends, but I don't know many people from the cos.com forums, though. I'll be cosplaying from Persona 3 with 2 other friends.

I like to plan very early it seems. Which characters of P3 will you have? (If that's not a secret)

I'll totally want to take pictures of you guys. Persona being one of my favorite series since I played Eternal Punishment.

My photo gallery on here doesn't show it, but taking pictures of cosplays is the second best thing next to dressing up at conventions for me. (Oh hey, I photographed that Zelda at Cape & Kimono in Québec!)

I'm going to be cosplaying Fuuka with 2 other friends as Mitsuru and Junpei. Mitsuru is already complete (http://www.cosplay.com/costume/131511/), but the other 2 have yet to be started. I feel like we're planning really in advance too!

I like to take cosplay photos too and Otakuthon is just great for pictures since the convention center has good lighting and nice spots (better than Cape & Kimono).

It's not that hard to be better than a small part of an hotel floor in the middle of a crowded city portion :P

I'll be keeping an eye out for your group on that date then! (Although I would regardless, considering it's Persona and all).

Well ok, comparing it to the location of Cape & Kimono isn't saying much, but really the location for Otakuthon is great. I was really impressed with it!

We'll be wearing our P3 cosplays Saturday and Sunday so there's a good chance you'll see us. Hopefully we'll run into each other! (I feel kinda silly talking about the convention that much ahead of time, hahah)

What Genkimami said, it's not that Otakuthon isn't a popular event (you'll find the Otakuthon forums on their actual website is much more active than the one here on cosplay.com), but this forum doesn't get a lot of attention until a few months closer to the con.

I've gone twice in loved it! Will be returning again in 2011 for sure. My cosplay list is unconfirmed, but I'm crossing my fingers that I finish Hrist from Valkyrie Profile

This past summer was my first time going and I was really impressed with it. The location, cosplays, events, surrounding area(Chinatown etc.), and just general atmosphere of the con are wonderful. Definitely didn't regret my last-minute decision to go. XD Will be returning in 2011 for sure!

Vicky: I remember seeing you in the lower lobby getting pictures taken. Your cosplay was very beautiful to see in real life.

@VickyBunnyAngel : I should consider joining their official forums, part of me was hoping to just register here and go from there, as I plan to check out more than just cons in my country. If you actually finish Hrist for Otakuthon, I'll be sure to look you up --- your costumes are amazing!

@JerseyMilk : I skipped out this year, as it was much too last-minute for me, and I wanted to actually have costumes on that time (Getting them commissionned on such short notice is a bad idea). 2011 is for real though --- and my sister's in Montreal, so it's less trouble to attend Otakuthon for me than Anime North. Really looking forward to it, I've seen plenty of pictures from the event of this year.

I've gone the last two years, and I can't wait for next year

I already have a couple things planned.

1) Participate in the masquerade again
2) Cosplays~!

I've figured out 2 of my cosplays.

Fri: Yoko Littner (in a nurse outfit) from Gurren Lagann
Sat: girl!Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (masq. cosplay)
Sun: ...debating between bringing Rider from Fate/stay night again (but the wig and accessories are annoying), or wearing Agito/Akito Wanijima from Air Gear (awkward due to the eyepatch and long straps).

@Otaking97 : Shame. Your anime (I think all that is anime, didn't spot anything else) collection is staggering. I thought I had a large game collection by myself, but it pales in comparison!

@MDA : We might run into each other on one of those days. I'll likely be easy to spot as Megamind with a camera

If I run into you when you're in Megamind, I so need a picture. As I sat watching the movie I was thinking "I guarantee, people are going to cosplay this...".
