  1. Yeah...we got a notice about lack of signature but they left it in the box anyway.
  2. Man, I really hope they get that figured out for you, and catch whoever took the other badge. It's odd that they'd open it up and take just one--kind of makes me wonder if it's not someone that was planning to actually use it to go to the con, instead of selling it (otherwise, why only steal one? and why open that specific package, unless they noticed it was from Otakorp and guessed what was in it?). Maybe this is a long shot, but does Otakorp have any way of matching badges to attendees? Like, are the names on the pre-mailed badges already printed on the badges, or do they just have a bla
  3. Cowboy Bebop...yeah I've never watched it until now. Also currently following Axis Powers Hetalia and K-ON!
  4. I'm sure most people are up for a meetup. But I think it's a little early to figure out the details. We don't know when the main showings/the relevant panels are yet.
  5. Me, the husband and barring anything crazy, the three girls we roomed with last week and an old friend from high school. But since we all have our own individual agendas at the con we may not aways be spending time together during the day.
  6. I guess so. I already have the idea formed in my mind. I'm just waiting for the DVDs I ordered to come in the mail so I can start getting my hands dirty. In the meantime I've been listening to the song a LOT.
  7. My girlfriend and I got one each as a sort of Sunday last-minute thing, hoping to discover some new, maybe obscure series. Although there were some interesting things (which have spurred a bit of exploration), I'd say they were not worth what we paid -- I'm no authority, but it seemed largely like stuff the vendors knew wasn't likely to sell off the shelf. A slightly broken wall hanging, a pre-opened action figure, vol. 23 of some graphic novel.... Has this been others' experience with grab bags? That said, if I could read Japanese decently enough, I'd guess the other one of the grab bags
  8. I wouldn't be as depressed if I was going to Anime Weekend Atlanta....but I'm not. Unfortunately Otakon was my last con of 08. I have nothing until Anime NEXT '09. But I do get a little down when "my" con season ends. Otakon (and AWA when I do eventually go) is the only chance I get to meet up with certain people. One of them (besides me) is getting married in a few months so it's not so bad. I'll get to see a lot of the group at the wedding. But the hotel is booked for next year already. I started cooking up my Otakon AMV for next year. I can't stop talking cosplay ideas wi
  9. The lower rate definitely! Conventions are such a big part of our summer, we schedule the rest of summer around them. We have a pretty good idea how to plan things out now. Last year we booked a room as soon as Otakon '07 ended. We didn't bother waiting for the con rate. We just wanted a place to stay the following year. Then half our group dropped out a few months later. But it all worked out because I had a friend who said she had a miserable lodging experience at the last con. We offered her and her friend the space, she took it, and we had a total blast. We're already plan
  10. Definitely going to the Death Note - Loveless crossover again with my fi...wait...he'll actually be my husband by then. If all goes to plan we'll also spend a day as musical "villians" (and I use the term "villians" as loosely as possible). I'll be dressing as Amiboshi from "Fushigi Yuugi" (Suzaku Summoning Ceremony outfit). He'll be going as Midvalley the Horn Freak from "Trigun" (a manga-anime hybrid).
  11. Yesterday we had booked a room at the Hyatt outside of the con block. We really wanted to stay at the Days again for the location and cheaper price but when they weren't accepting reservations online we panicked and jumped on the first thing we could find just so we'd KNOW we'd have a place to stay. Thank goodness the Days wasn't filled up after all. That con rate is AMAZING! O_O Even more so considering my AAA rate outside the con block was cheaper than the con rate this year. My fellow roomies are going to be so happy.
  12. Cat ears A couple of wall scrolls (Death Note, Spiral and Fruits Basket) Kingdom Hearts I and II Final Mix (my goal for Dealer's Room) I wanted to buy a NERV shoulder bag but I waited until Sunday to shop and all the stands were out of them. Nothing from Artist Alley but I did take a few cards. I plan to comission somthing but circumstances prevented me from doing so at the con. I'm dying to know who bought my crocheted DDR pillows at the Art Auction. As a total newb to the Arts aspect at cons, thank you so much! You made my day.
