  2. That sounds awesome! 2008 was the year before I started coming to Otakon, so seeing stuff like this available again would be cool.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I remember some years back (2008?), there was something on the schedule that was just archive recordings of concerts playing in a video room. I wonder if something like that has been explored for a possible return to the schedule? I'd love to revisit the first JAM Projecyt show in 04, the TMR/Home Made Kazoku collab, Oreskaband etc.

  10. I think someone tried to merge a post into the guest request thread and changed the name of the thread on accident. (for the record, I looked up Hazbin Hotel on Google; I was not very impressed.)
  11. Did someone change the name of the thread to Hazbin Hotel instead of 2020 Guest Requests?
  12. Earlier
  13. Miyavi has slowly made his way into the anime scene with having his music be used for anime openings and closings. He's also been apart of anime/ manga themed movies like Bleach and Gangoose! His high level energy would be a great if not excellent addition to Otakon 2020!!!
  14. So I have been thinking and I would really love to see Micheal Kovach Edward Bosco Vivienne Medrano
  15. Lauren Edinger is always versatile with her cosplay performance, she’d be an entertaining edition.
  16. For a cosplay guest weyrwoman cosplay would be great to see https://m.facebook.com/weyrwoman2218/ Also some talent from Japan Isuna Hasekura JΕ« Ayakura
  17. Hello! I am a cosplayer, WeyrWoman Cosplay, and cosplay photographer and would be interested in being involved in the con as a cosplay guest. Cosplay Pages: www.facebook.com/weyrwoman2218 www.instagram.com/weyrwoman2218 www.ladybyrdproductionsllc.com I do panels, cosplay judging and attend after functions in support of the convention.

  19. Hey all! MaGFest (Music and Gaming Festival) 2020 just happened this past weekend. I was there as were 30k+ other people and it was a blast. Did anyone else here go? https://super.magfest.org for more info Also, check out a video I made of my experience: https://youtu.be/UxMnAvg6ZEM
  20. Currently, the word is the Dulles Airport extension of the Metro is scheduled to open July 16, leaving only a week or so before Otakon. Because of "best-laid plans" and all, it's probably better to assume more delays in the opening will happen and Metro will not be running to/from IAD during Otakon. If I'm wrong, it will be a pleasantly surprised "wrong". 😊
  21. This is the 2020 edition of the travelers advisory thread for those that will be commuting to the con over the heavily loaded period of July 30 thru August 1. I make this thread to help Otakon goers as much as possible to avoid potential bottlenecks, or not be caught by changes to traffic patterns & transit lines. There may be a whole slew of changes for 2020, so keep an eye on this thread as we get closer to the convention period.
  22. To Whom it May Concern: Hello! My name is Gage, and in the cosplay community I go by the lovely name of Hideyo Mochimo. I'm a Colorado based cosplayer that has been cosplaying since 2006. In that time frame, I have made upwards of 200 cosplays, ranging in anime to Disney to even the obscure like Broadway! I specialize in sewing, but also participate in my own wig-styling and prop making, as well as makeup artistry! After looking into Otakon, I thought I would reach out and offer up my services as a cosplay guest, if that is something your convention would be interested in. In the past, I have judged several contests, as well as run several panels ranging from things such as Crossplay and Genderbend 101, to Costume Safety, and Cosplay and Confidence! Past conventions that I have had the honor to guest at are IdeaCon in Colorado, Starfest in Colorado, Anime Weekend Atlanta in Georgia, and upcoming I will be guesting at KawaiiKon in Hawaii and ThyGeekdomCon in Pennsylvania. I have won several awards for my cosplay craftmanship including Runner-up to Best in Show, Judge's Choice, and Best in Category, as well as for my performance skills (I recently won Best in Intermediate Performance and Best in Overall Performance at Anime Banzai). If what I can offer sounds like something you would be interested in, we can absolutely talk compensation as well as expectations for what you would like from a cosplay guest at Otakon. Let me know if you would be interested in having me as a guest for your upcoming convention! Thank you so much, have a great day!

  23. ANN Recently reported the release month of Kaguya-Sama: Love is War 2nd season I originally started reading the manga around the the time it first started coming out. I was hooked immediately! Probably one of my favorites in the genre to date. a super-short, pretty accurate, but non-spoilery, and oversimplified Synopsis The story follows two main protagonists, Miyuki Shirogani, the Student Council President with the #1 grade in the school, and Kaguya Shinomiya, the StCo Vice-President with the 2nd highest grades in the school. Due to their skewed and over-fantasized views on romance, enter into a sort of cold war to make the other confess to them. I really enjoy the art style, and it fits well with the story and characters. The story itself in the beginning may seem stereotypical, but there is a novelty that makes you enjoy it so much more. Hope you check it out Chika Fujiwara [Image source: IMDB]
  24. Please bring LiSA for a concert!! πŸ˜„πŸ˜πŸ’œ

  26. I remember you were in a big hurry to go home. I even walked with you to Penn Station then we went our separate ways.
  27. That's not exactly helpful, but where would you say I should post this to get more constructive criticism?
  28. All of it needs work... Also you're not first to the market with this kind of thing... Wikia.com and other Wiki style sites out there are already doing what you want to do... I suppose this is good practice for you to learn different elements of HTML etc, but yeah.
