  1. I wonder if the concert will have a huge effect on the Thursday line? Like, everyone goes to the concert instead of waiting, so there's no one in line. hmm...
  2. I find it rather shocking that this hotel still seems to have alot of rooms left. I would have thought that it would sell out fairly quickly since it is connected to the con center and I think that some Otakon things are going to be held in it.
  3. THIS....oh my god THIS! I am extremly tired of the yaoi skits. Even though last years first skit of the masq, the KH one, was good craftmanship, as soon as they started the yaoi as they where walking off the stage, i already wanted to leave
  4. Well now, I wouldn't call them idiots, just fanatics. They can be obsessed if they want, it doesn't make them stupid. Like ZGL said, some people have a thing for standing in line. Again, far be it from me to know why, but they do.
  5. One problem that I see with having pre-reg for the big events is that I don't believe it is fair. Especially if you are talking about registering for these events before the con. Here is my reasoning for this feeling. There are alot of people who do not register online. They are paying just as much as or even more than the people who pre-reg. They should have the same shot at getting up-front seats as the people that pre-reg. I feel the same way about registering for the big events at the con. Alot of people aren't able to get to the con right when it starts, yet these people are
  6. Actually the upper left logo still says '08, but I swear it said '09 just the other day... And the artist alley news from Aug 28 isn't there anymore. Haha.
  7. Oh, I just noticed that the site flipped over to Otakon 2009. Cool.
  8. Oh. You mean how just because something is perverted and obscene doesn't mean it's actually doing any harm to anyone? Yeah. A pen and some paper can be a mighty danger to society (warning: that was sarcasm). Still, how anyone finds any appeal in that material is beyond me. Maybe some form of mandatory counseling would be a more suitable punishment seeing as how there are clearly some issues there.
  9. Ok, now I'm a little confused. I've kinda of gotten conflicting answers. Unless I am reading too much into his post, I've got Alabaster basically saying that males can go shirtless at Otakon, yet then I've got Asrial Dune saying no males cannot go shirtless at Otakon. So which is it. (I do faintly remember shirtless Zabuza cosplayers at Otakon in 2007, I missed last year's con) It's not that important, the conflicting answers are just confusing. It's not for me anyway since I am a girl, and if I went shirtless it might be scary. My DD's would probably cause someone to fall down the
  10. I have a question that came up as an issue at my local con, and I wondered what Otakon's policy has been on it. Can male cosplayers go shirtless? It seems that a male cosplayer at my local con dressed up a Ace from One Piece, and he was told that he had to put a shirt on. Would he have been made to put a shirt on at Otakon?
  11. That is the regular room rate for the Hyatt. The discount for Otakon is significant.
  12. I don't know if they Hyatt was ever in the system or not because I just booked the rack rate, but I'm gonna tell you that I got lucky. I got a room for $229 a night a few days ago. I just checked their rates again and they have now upped them (guess they figured out that it was Otakon weekend) The lowest regular rate is now a whopping $489.00 a night. Hope everyone that wanted a Hyatt room actually got Otakon rates or made it in before the regular rates changed.
  13. I'm heading back on May 11 - May 27 next year. Hopefully it won't be too rainy during that time, but as long as were not hit with a typhoon I'll be happy. I would have liked to travel again during the cherry blossom blooming, but I'm taking my niece and her college freshman year doesn't end until May 9.
  14. At our business, we are fairly flexible. The employees get a week off each year plus holidays and 5 days sick leave. They don't have to give us alot of notice, it is just on a first come first serve basis. We don't want everyone taking the same week off. Sometimes things happen that someone has to have the same week that someone else already has scheduled. We will usually find a way for them both to take off. My situation is a little different, I pretty much take off whenever I want to. One of the perks of being the owner's daugther
  15. Hey, when did they add the neat little event planner thing to the member's only area. I like it alot!!!!!! I love having the dealers, schedule(tentative) things, and eventually the artists listed like that beforehand, that's cool as crap. Great job on that little website aspect. Psst....what's a party plaza
  16. I had the 169 rate as I was a single adult with kids. They changed my room to the 199 rate. (and included me in the block). Both are unfair as there were people who were at the top of the waiting list who were told the block was full before they even got a chance. F-
