What day do most people come to Otakon?otakon
Posted 22 January 2012 - 05:03 PM
I heard that most people come on Saturdays, but I know sometimes most people come on Friday. . .
- i'm always online there, so if you need to reach me for some reason, send me an ask on there to get a quicker response
- Otakon 2013 (money's tight this year, gotta cut back orz)
- Kagamine Rin (I need a Len, if you know a Len like set me up with them or s/t.)
- Ultimate Madoka (or Godoka, Kamidoka, etc. etc.)
- Aisaka Taiga (this uniform)
I'm totally up to meeting with you / taking pictures or anything of the sort!! If we don't coordinate or anything, but you still want to keep an eye out for me or something, look below!!
FRIDAY: Look for an Ultimate Madoka cosplayer, about 4'11" (really short). I'll be wearing a Pikachu-plush backpack, and I'll be with a Kitana (Mortal Kombat) cosplayer! I'll also have a bow and arrow with me, if that helps~
SATURDAY: Look for a Kagamine Rin cosplayer with light-up headphones and the same backpack~ I'll be with my friend again, this time as Hatsune Miku!

But it's true...there is a tendency for people to get there on Saturday cuz
1) Probably a large handful of people can't get Friday off
2) The line to both get in the building and/or pick up your badge on Friday tends to be really really long. Example: Before I even started considering picking up my badge on Thursday night I would wait in line Friday morning (around 6 or 7am) to get badges and would STILL take me till noon to actually get into the building.
Granted...the bar-code scanning system has made the process faster but at the same time Otakon has gotten more popoular too....so *shrug*

I totally agree with the 'formula' mentioned above. On Saturday the cosplayers come out to play. lol. In the past 4 years out of all the cons I've gone to Otakon is THE con for cosplay display. Anime Boston and Anime Central have some good cosplay as well, but Otakon beats it in that respect hands DOWN.
I sadly haven't had much money the past few years for anything good from the Dealer Hall/Dealer's Room, but this coming year I plan on changing that! xD

It was either that or leave it with the hotel...and god knows where they throw it/ how they handle the stuff if they have to 'push stuff aside' to make space.
Heh, there were Gofers in cosplay for the Thursday morning orientation. It seemed to me if it was an Otakon day, it was a cosplay day.
Funny thing was I had parts of 2 different costumes on during orientation.
