  1. Were they in black shirts (Otakon staff) or red jackets?
  2. It was our space, that's pretty much where I lived the whole con, lol. I don't want to speculate, but you have to remember, the only thing going on up there that required member access where the events, the rest of the time it was sound checks or change overs. There's a lot of movement on that level during the times where access was restricted, so I'm sure it was made for many reasons.
  3. The 3rd floor was a restricted access area, so that part was true. I don't know all the details about why, but it was. Outside of event times, the only members allowed up to that level were masquerade participants.
  4. Food Recommendation Thread!

    I believe they're on Open Table, so you should be able to reserve in advance and skip the wait. A lot of the places in the Gallery Place area have Open Table for reservations which can make life a little easier if you have a set time you'd like to eat.
  5. A lot of people have mentioned the TMR/JAM Project concert, so I'll just randomly pick yours to reply Otakon staff had no control over the mix for the concert, Anisong World Matsuri brought their production crew over from Japan. All the audio, lights, camera direction, etc.. were by the Japanese staff. The way they mixed the sound was their choice and how they normally mix the concerts for those artists. Other events, such as the Masquerade, it's a completely different crew, and we do have more control there, but for Anisong it was more or less completely hands off for our contractors and crews.
  6. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    Not sure, not my department, lol. I work in the Main Events hall so that's the only reason I knew.
  7. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    You're in luck, if I recall correctly, he's the one that was announced at Closing Ceremonies.
  8. What happened to the Art Exhibition area?

    Maybe not, but that doesn't mean that halls and rooms in the BCC never had water (or worse) happen.
  9. Churches in town?

    Since you mentioned a Catholic Church in your post, there's St. Patrick's in the Gallery Place area. It's the church the Pope went to a few years ago http://www.saintpatrickdc.org/ Oh and definitely walk if you can. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from the convention center and a very busy part of the city.
  10. Supermarket

    I can tell you from experience, they don't. I'm from Boston (Stop&Shop), but live in MD (Giant) and have tried, lol.
  11. Anisong World Matsuri merch preview

    Came to agree with this. I think my Muse and Cage the Elephant Tshirts were in the $40 range.
  12. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Well, the 8th would likely be when the badge shipping company printed the label, it probably wasn't picked up by USPS until the next day.
  13. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Contact the help desk staff (help.otakon.com) and explain to them what happened.
  14. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    I didn't say end of year did I? MLK is the same time as my mom's birthday, and is surprisingly the worst. Memorial Day is my brother's and can also be bad. I mean, there's a lot more factors than just the holiday, but my personal experience is that it has been a factor for me in the past.
  15. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Contact us through the help desk (help.otakon.com,) but honestly I would give it until at least Monday. The holiday weekend probably threw off the mail a bit. The only Postal holiday last weekend was Sat. July 3 was a normal workday for them. So having only 1 day and that being a Sat off CAN'T have messed things up that much... ref- https://about.usps.com/news/events-calendar/2015-postal-holidays.htm You'd be surprised. I live outside DC and my parents live in Boston, normally it takes 2-3 days for mail to get there, but when a holiday is involved I've seen it take up to 10.
