  1. Basically it seems there have been multiple incidents of of men not wearing uniforms using keys to come into occupied rooms when guests were showering. https://www.popville.com/2021/10/allegations-dc-hotel-chain/?fbclid=IwAR3DwB9Ot7CVS-Ew-ZxmgjZzc-l16I8JNO4wnCoJFXh6k1KrGfL_JBoUU2c
  2. Good to know its not just me! I did thank the person who asked but gave them a no as well. Wonder what they would use it for though?
  3. There was a room for LARP this year too, didn't go in but saw it.
  4. Random question I guess, but I was a panelist this year and at the end of our panel a guy came up and asked if they could have a copy of my powerpoint. That's weird, right?
  5. The Kabuki panel was really exceptional. The only downside was my having to switch seats because I got lucky enough to be next to a guy who took his mask off not only to eat but pick his nose 🙄 Everything else was pretty solid content-wise. Con Horror stories was unfortunate but I guess its not a con without at least one panel being a no-show. Also, was it just me or was Panel 3 freezing cold?
  6. Seems like I hit a nerve there. You okay? Pretty sure I was hardly the only one expecting a lower turnout. But even before going I knew I wouldn't be wandering around the building like I normally do or eating inside. I'm more worried about the people there who were being lazy with masks just because they were seated.
  7. $10 for a burger is pretty standard in DC tbh. And I stayed away from sbarrros just due to the sheer crowding in there.
  8. Hun, I did. I doubt so many expected an almost normal numbers of attendees. Why you're not concerned with this convention getting labeled a super spreader event is beyond me.
  9. I can. I saw several people with their masks off during panels or while roaming the halls.
  10. I second an attendance cap should have happened. I got extremely anxious when they announced how many people had been at the con at closing ceremonies. If Otakon ends up being a super spreader event that's not good for the con's image or for the attendees. Otakon should have required proof of vaccination, if anything.

  12. Good: Quicker bag check system this year Lots of photo requests for my cosplay, which I hadn't really expected. The Kabuki panel Bad: More of a personal one, my co panelist and I were sent around in circles when trying to get our badges/panelist ribbons on Thursday because no one at the front door told us where to go, we went to the info booth and even they seemed perplexed about how to get us to panel ops. Took a while before we were able to ask the right person to escort us up there. Due to covid concerns I didn't hang around the con, between events my group
  13. Would be considerate to take a seat at the back if you plan to leave a panel early.
  14. Just spotted this place - https://www.ghostburgerdc.com/ Very tempting! and right next to the convention center
  15. I've never been keen on their menu, tbh.
  16. Just wondering how the autographs will work this year with covid in mind. I assume handshakes and the likes are out of the question, but I don't see how social distance would work if you're getting something signed.
  17. I'm attending this year, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't somewhat apprehensive. I really hope mask wearing is enforced.
  18. On the hotel page the Marriot Marquis is still open as is pretty much every other hotel. Guess that likely means we won't be overcrowded at least...
  19. My go to (Vapiano's) is gone T_T so that's gonna sting a bit. But let me recommend Arepa Zone. Its incredibly good and about a 10 minute walk from the con.
  20. I'm going with a modern plague doctor.
  21. I'm just coming up with cosplays involving masks.
  22. If there's no AMV contest this year I'm reconsidering attending.
  23. Hi all, I submitted my panel on the first day the option opened, but later saw the link got taken down and reworked. I never got a confirmation email for my panel submission and I'm wondering if that means something went wrong? Should I resubmit it? Just want to clear things because panel submissions close tomorrow.
  24. Lots of Overhaul cosplayers lol
