  1. Plan to review panels here later, but seeing this contractor post wanted to post my thoughts before I forget. 1. Every room should have 2 projectors. Its awful getting into a panel you're hyped for, getting delegated to the side of the room where you just simply have no angle of the sole screen at all. 2. I feel like if this isn't a thing, a piece of paper should be at ever panel on how to connect to the mics/speakers and how to troubleshoot common issues. In multiple panels I experienced audience members playing IT support on how to check basic, basic things (basic IT wise, I dont expe
  2. Putting my vote in for no masks, yes vaccines. Just got back from Katsu and despite their mask policy, like 20% or more of the con didn't wear it, no one seemed to care, and this was particularly true for Katsu staff, booths and tables in the dealers room and artists alley (and included the people at and around the Otakon table).
  3. Have we heard yet how people who got their badges mailed can get guides + printed schedules on Thursday?
  4. That's my biggest concern with having the tracking number. Ignoring being promised it and all, we were told (iirc, correct me if I am wrong) that these would HAVE to be signed for. If they don't...that's great. But if they do, those of us with jobs and other obligations need to know WHEN its coming so we can make arrangements to be sure its signed for.
  5. Keeping customers out of the loop is never really a solid plan. At least give us a "we know there is a problem and are working on it..."
  6. YATTA Or if he was a real man, Livin' La Vida Loca dressed up as Hard Gay. That is all.
  7. Maybe get together with people that are going to be hosting panels and have them do suggestions for the programming in some rooms? EX: On Friday or Saturday of the con I remember going to a J-Drama Panel, and some of that stuff sounded pretty interesting. It would have been great if there was a follow-up viewing of one or two of the shows they could have promoted later in the con. As awesome as they sounded, everything at the con sounded that way, and by the time one makes it to the Dealer's Room without an actual lasting impression some of those titles and ideas were lost.
  8. Welp once more my plans have changed, but being as my girlfriend actually bought patterns and fabrics this time it should all stay... She is going to go as Konata Izumi from Lucky Star (Summer Uniform), and I will be heading as Minoru Shiraishi (School Uniform) also from Lucky Star. Don't know how many days we will cosplay yet / if we will be doing that all three, but that's the plan for now at least.
  9. I start saving funds on January 1st. Depending upon my hours and desires/needs is how much I put aside. I'll aim to have my hotel money saved by February, Gas and Food by March or early April, and from that point on anything I do or dont' put aside just determines how much gear I can get.

    NYAF - Otakon

    Granted I don't have exact numbers, but I hear that the expected attendance is to be between 10,000 and 15,000 people.
  12. 1. Make your reservations for next year. 2. In one sitting, watch all six episodes of FLCL in Japanese with English subs. 3. Repeat step 2 until you feel a little better and take solace in the fact that Otakon is early next year!
  13. Yuri Lowenthal. Enough said. Spending time with two of my greatest friends. All of the wonderful things Bandai incorporated and learning about a new show. Kadokawa Pictures Panel. My first 45 minutes in the Dealer's Room. Seriously. I walked and just stared, people probably laughed at me. It was an overwhelming sight. Being shocked by my enjoyment for the Artist Alley. Walking around the Dealer's Room completely broke and still enjoying it.
  14. Were the Kamina who was hanging out with the Yoko after the Geass dating game?
  15. I have 3 dealer's I'm looking for, just to jot down then names for next year. Good deals and purchases to be had everywhere of course. Who was the table with the Code Geass Model Kits ($27-$33) that I saw? I only saw two people with them, near the back center wall. Who was the person in the center with the doujins and risque wallscrolls with the funny phrases over 'certain' body parts (You must mine more minerals, 2v2 bgh?, Need more vespene gas)? Who was it that was having the insane deals on the manga? It was like 30 for $150 or something crazy.
  16. No edit button, sorry. Does anyone know WHERE exactly this supposed hallway linking the BCC and the Hilton will connect at? o_O Also if this will alter the convenience of getting into the con / pre-reg? Basically what I'm asking is, where in the convention center does it connect? Will we be allowed to use that to get in for Pre-Reg? Will we be allowed to use that to get into the con? Just checking, my friends have a reservation at the Days Inn also, and if the convenience isn't worth it...hmm...
  17. Hilton's back on the radar. I just got my Thursday at the Hilton added to my reservation. Got Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday night for a total of $816, $926.16 after taxes. May or may not drop the Sunday to bring it down to $612 ($694.62 with taxes) after awhile. Need to see what my group desires, but I wanted to cover all bases.
  18. If all goes according to plan, Tuxedo Mask with 1 Sailor Scout minimum, potentially 3 total.
  19. Place I stayed: Renaissance Harborplace Hotel Number of people in room: 3 Hotel Staff: Bellhops are awesome. Desk people are retarded. Food workers were a pleasure to talk to. Walk to the con center: Around 5 minutes. The bad: Didn't check for TV hookups, but I doubt there were any, they wanted you to buy there movies and such it seemed. I can't say for certain. However they DID charge an additional $150 ($50/night) that I was not told about for "safety" issues. We flipped because I called no less than 10 times asking EXACTLY how much I would need. So if you go there, make sure to p
  20. I misunderstood as well. It was great to meet you though and you guys did an awesome job talking to each of us and working the booth.
  21. Transportation: $50 Hotel: $250 Food : $60 Merchandise: ~$450 Artist Alley: $130 Total: $940 A bit for my first con, but it was a load of fun, got lots of stuff I've always wanted, and had an experience unlike anything I ever imagined.
  22. THANK YOU! I brought a pen and paper with me but lost the list. This is greatly appreciated. Great panel too! THANK YOU! I brought a pen and paper with me but lost the list. This is greatly appreciated. Great panel too!
