  1. Yesterday
  2. I was wondering if there was a place where all the planned gatherings were listed for Otakon 2017, I've looked around and haven't been able to find anything but I'd really like to at least see some meetups for shows I follow if they are happening
  3. Yes, I meant to say 2017. Cosplay Coordinaton will be back for THIS con, Otakon 2017. I am so excited for Otakon I am already planning for 2018! Thanks for the correction.
  4. Current Plans: Ann Takamaki (Persona 5) Goro Akechi (Persona 5) Ouma Kokichi (Danganronpa V3) Plan to get Goro later this week. If it doesn't work out, I plan to go as Chiaki Nanami from Danganronpa 2 instead. Though I'm 90% sure I'll be Goro.
  5. I mean... Chipotle is okay, but when CalTor(t) was in its building for those many years it was great because they were about the only decent food place open until 2AM. Sure 7-Eleven and Royal Farms is also open that late ( 24h I believe) but if you want something more than snacks, CalTor(t) was the place to go through 2AM.
  6. Suddenly, I want to do a Shocker Combatman cosplay, and tell y'all that you're doing it wrong, lol. (also, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! XD)
  7. Greetings! My group of 3 has already registered, but this year we just found we have a 4th. Is it possible for us to add their registration on so their badge can be mailed with ours? Or are they screwed and have to stand in the line while we party away in DC? Thanks!
  8. Last week
  9. (Moved to correct board. Mods, feel free to delete)
  10. Skull Grunts. Based on the last two cons I was able to go to this year, Skull Grunts will absolutely take over. My group's bringing at least another 3. :>
  11. I have acquired a hotel room at the Comfort Inn near the convention and am looking for roommates to make friends / cut costs. The room can hold up to 4 people max (2 beds). Right now it's just me (I'd prefer to sleep in my own bed though). If you're interested, please PM me. About me: I'm 24y/o male from Boston with pending cosplays (trying to get Fumikage, but Gowther and Lelouch are defaults). I'm aro-ace, LGBT friendly (if a concern), private person otherwise, and I don't drink -- though don't mind people who do in moderation. If I had one weird personality quirk, I can be extremely quiet (think ninja) -- some people like it, some find it uncomfortable. Either way, nice to meet you. (^o^)/

  13. https://www.otakon.com/register/mailed-badges-faq/ Q: I NEVER RECEIVED MY BADGE BUT MY TRACKING NUMBER SHOWS IT'S BEEN DELIVERED! A: Contact us through our interactive help desk at otakon.desk.com right away and we will help you investigate this. We are also keeping a log of all issues like this to take to our Processor and to the United States Postal Service after the convention. Once you've contacted the help desk, they will give you instructions about how to receive a replacement badge. With your information, we can hopefully make this a smoother process for next year.Because of the time between sending the badges out and the convention we typically will not be able to reissue and re-mail your badge. Q: WHAT IF MY BADGE NEVER ARRIVES? A: If your badge hasn't arrived by August 1st, please visit the USPS tracking page and enter the tracking number found on the Event Registration History page behind your Otakorp membership login. After entering the tracking number on the USPS tracking page, it will likely show one of three states: delivered, in-transit, or exception. Tracking shows Delivered: The tracking information will show what day/time the package was delivered. Check with your housemates to see if one of them signed for the package. Tracking shows Processed Through Sort Facility, Arrival At Unit, Processing Complete, or Out-for-Delivery: The package is still in the USPS system and will be delivered. The page should provide an estimated delivery date/time. Tracking shows Notice Left: No one was available at the home to sign for the package and a notice was left on the door. A delivery will be attempted again, or you can contact the post office to pick it up from the from the post office. Tracking shows Refused: When the postal carrier brought the package to the home, someone at the home refused to sign for it and requested that it be returned to sender. Check with your housemates and contact the post office. You may be able to pick it up from the local post office or have another delivery attempt made. Tracking shows Exception: Get in touch with the post-office. If for whatever reason the package was lost or destroyed in transit, get in touch with us.
  14. I have a question regarding this: if, for some reason, the badge gets lost in the mail, would I still be able to get one if I have my barcode on the day of badge pickup?
  15. So minor correction to the above, it will be back for 2017. We are finalizing some location choices to account for some other changes we had to make. There should be an announcement when everything is confirmed on our end. After all it's a lot easier to do all the early gruntwork and not have to change something after it's been public for 3-4 weeks.
  16. Chipotle was my go to place to eat last year, because you could buy with the app, and skip the line.
  17. My apologies. Got caught up in the startup of the Summer Reading Clubs at work. All caught up now.
  18. I would like to see Kira Buckland and Kyle McCarley at Otakon. They're the english voice actors if two main characters in Nier Automata. They've also been doing a lot of cool stuff like streaming the game playthrough and a fan-translated reading of the Nier Automata concert play which was exclusively performed in Japan.
  19. IKR? I'm so happy Otakon again has some decent Mexican fast food. F*ck that Chipotle sh*t. lol.
  20. I think we'll see a few Samurai Jack cosplays, particularly Ashi cosplays.
  21. I did see a Kim Possible cosplayer at AwesomeCon last week
  22. I only know this since I went to Awesome-Con last week, there's a 7-11 about a 10 minute walk away from the convention center on 7th street.
  23. You'll definitely find LGBT-friendly items in the Dealer's Room, I bought an ace heart pin a few conventions ago. Its also not uncommon for there to be panels that focus on the subject of diversity in fandom, including LGBT representation.
  24. Nope. As it stands, the Metro will be open until 1am on Friday and Saturday nights as is, so we would get no benefit from this.
  25. I'm all for this.
  26. http://wtop.com/tracking-metro-24-7/2017/06/metro-willing-extend-hours-select-big-dc-area-events/ The catch: The money and the 1 a.m. thing makes it...not totally usable for Otakon, I'd presume.
  27. Hm yeah, two sets of escalators to get down there from the registration hall? I hope they don't depend on the route to get people in...
