  1. letsee: pre-reg: $55 Food: $35.00 Rouroni Kenshin box set: $60 tenjho tenge vol. 6- $25 pocky: $15 parking: $20 ergo proxy costume materials: $80 weight lost: 3 lbs.
  2. I think the Laura Bailey panel was the best. I would never have thought that Ms. Bailey would say p*nis 3 times in a few seconds
  3. My buddies and I thought we were weird for feeling so depressed. Its nice to see we're not alone. We treat Otakon like a High Holy Weekend. We get more excited about it than Christmas! After the con, we sat in my friends basement for two days eating Sunchips and watching Tenjho Tenge, Ergo Proxy and playing Dead or Alive Extreme 2 (and YES we actually play it.) It's kinda sad when you see the badges of past otakons hanging from the corner of a picture frame and the scattered contents of your otakon bag strewn all over the place from your living room to the back seat of the car. I gu
  4. Also, did anyone see the Griffith from Berserk on Friday? Figures as soon as he walks by, my digital camera died. He looked very good and you rarely see Berserk cosplayers, I guess due to the difficulty of making all that armor etc.
  5. did anyone get a picture of the Yojimbo from Final Fantasy X that was walking around on Saturday? I saw him meandering around the "Tales Of..." photoshoot up on the third floor outside the HD Theatre. Also, does anyone have a picture of the Ergo Proxy (me)? I went around on Friday as him and was wondering if anyone had any good shots? It was such a fun costume =D
  6. i know! otakon keeps getting better and bigger every year. Ellen Stern at the Epcar and Stern Q&A panel said that anime is slowing down, but at otakon you sure can't tell
  7. my tent is packed and ready to go for the pre-reg line! My fiancee is happy that otakon '09 isnt falling on our wedding date of August 8th, otherwise i might've had to postpone!! I suggested that we have the wedding at otakon but that didn't go over well.... o.o
  8. Letsee: -Volume 6 of Tenjho Tenge, -The entire first season of Rouroni Kenshin, -a Zero Suit Samus poster from the Artists Alley -and a mudkip, in honor of 4chan NOT being there (thank God) I also spent 50 bucks on Pocky and steak and onion subs from Blimpie in the Bank of America building =D
  9. yeah Thursday moves quickly. To pass the time, a buddy and I am planning on dressing up like rick astley and carrying a stereo around playing "never gonna give you up". yes it has been done before at otakon but hey it sure is fun, plus i love the reactions you get from passign cars. =D
  10. the MTA does a decent job compensating for the trains, if they're out, with the MTA buses. You'll have to plan ahead and make a little more time if you take the buses instead. I'd imagine the MTA will try to get the trains running asap since they play a large role in innercity commuting
  11. i think such disruptive idiots are giving some con-goers second thoughts about reserving a hotel. After last years Sheraton incident my buddies and I have decided to commute to the BCC for otakon rather than stay in the hotels where such problems are beginning to abound.
  12. hey at least we got the 1st Mariner Arena back again. That'll take some pressure of the the BCC
  13. actually id like a metaknight plushie. Also, those big, stuffed tachikomas XD they sell like hotcakes. by friday evening last year they were all gone. luckily i managed to get one of the last ones =D
  14. I'd love to see Alucard's replica guns- the Jackal and the Joshua .454 Casull. I think the Japanese metal replicas are considered illegal in America since they have moving parts, but even the cheaper resin replicas that came out in a special DVED collection a few years ago would be cool! The guns are so hard to find and if you find them on ebay, they usually run about $150.00
  15. lol yeah unfortunately the burger king is gone, at least it was this past year. kind of puts a lot of pressure on Blimpie subs and the pizza place across the hall XD
  16. last year my group went to the Cheesecake Factory (in the small indoor mall/restaurant complex by the water) on thursday after badge pickup. If you've been there before then you know its pretty pricey. of course we didnt know and we blew half of our con food money in one sitting (that monster carrot cake WAS pretty good though =D) Then we toured the USS Constellation, then headed back home to make some last minute cosplay fixes. Thursday's nice because you can enjoy the atmosphere around the BCC without feeling like you're missing the con.
  17. Baltimore can be a scary city but seeing as I've lived in nearby Harford County and went to high school in the city, i know my way around. Some outsiders complain about the "rude hotel clerks" or the "Scary people with guns" or "angry Yankees fans" (when they're in town) But two years ago, i had a candid moment which changed my opinion on the city for the better. It was Otakon 2006 and i was returning from the 1st Mariner Arena from the masquerade with my buddies. Along the side of the road were three burly guys in ghetto attire, leaning on their Escalade smoking. I was cosplaying
  18. My big project will be Ergo Proxy, from Ergo Proxy =D I'm thinking about doing a "human" Meta Knight, Brawl style but we'll see how much time i have
  19. My three buddies and myself have been going to Otakon the past 5 years. We have a routine- get our badges on thursday, eat at taco bell that nite then help my friend finish his costume by running to CVS pharmacy and the dollar store at 10 at night, then stay up till 2am getting sick on cheez-its. =D when we get up on friday, we go into WaWa in Abingdon, off the I-95 exit to get coffee. The best part is the reactions we get from people who often ask us "is there a horror-con in town?" sometimes we've been called freaks, goths, sluts and weirdos, although the guy behind the deli called ou
