Anime Reactor

Anybody thinking of going to this? It's a new convention which will be held in Rosemont, IL (right near chicago) going on from October 24th-26th. I've heard good things about it and am planning to go as I will be going to college not too far from there next year. I was just wondering if anyone else had plans of attending.

There was an old thread about this con:

I am trying my hardest to attend this convention, even if I have to travel by myself. One of my favorite artist is attending and I doubt he'll make another American appearance any time soon.

Yeah, I'm curious as well. I haven't heard anyone talking about Anime Reactor... is it going to be a small turnout because no one in the Chicago area knows about it? I'll be going for sure

Hopefully, they'll promote heavily before/at ACEN. @_@

Oh, there's mega-plans to promote it at ACen already. Hehe...being first year, though, we're probably only gonna get those of us around the area this time. Unless people are going through mega-withdrawal since Otakon - which they'll probably just hold out 'til Halloween anyway. ^_^*

Oh, I just noticed this was -after- Kazecon...oh well, doesn't matter too much for plans. I'll still be at both - though I wonder if being so close will affect other people from getting to both, too.
Very weird that the two new ones at the same place are happening practically at the same time, though. I wonder how that happened.

Hehe, just calling dibs on a character doesn't make people not cosplay her as well. I mean, unless it's for a skit or whatever where you can't have clones. But Reactor's not that big, probably, so there might only be like...14 or so. ^_-

Perhaps you could explain a little bit more about the unique nature of the cosplay at Anime Reactor? How similar or different will it be to the current gong resounding action at Acen, or has that changed there?

Are you talking about the masquerade procedures? There was no gong this year at ACen...I have to note that was unfortunate in some cases.
I don't know though, how is hall cosplay different from con to con? I guess it mostly depends on the prop protocols and the crowd level.

I'm glad to hear that the gong was gone at Acen. Got real problems with that gong philosophically.

So it looks like I'll be at Anime Reactor for Saturday and Sunday. Right now Nemo and myself are planning on bringing

Nemo:
Samurai Jack
Ashram

Me:
Pirotase (Lodoss Wars)
Natsuki (Hyper Police)
Haruka Minato (Nadescico)

and either Cate Archer (No One Lives Forever) or Luminara Unduli (Star Wars ep 2) depending on how time, money, and ambition hold out.
