    Otakon 2018 Vlog Series from yours truly!

    Thanks! Just as a pseudo-forewarning, there isn't really any con center footage this time around... as I more focused on time with friends this year... I thought you should enjoy it otherwise though.

    Hi guys! Yeah only Thursday's vlog is out so far. Friday is out on Tuesday, Saturday's the week after etc. i.e they're scheduled. @moto thank you! Could you also delete the post or part of the post asking for the edit? Lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thank you to those that put on Otakon!

    Yeah most if not all of my small issues took place in my hotel room (roommates judging how I spend my time at the con and how late I stay out etc) and little if any with the con itself. Thank you Otakon staff for putting up with everyone and doing your best within your limits and reach to get us fun stuff to do. I do agree with some of the things people have complained about, but that's not what this thread is for. xD

    How was your hotel?

    Oooh I stayed at the Grand Hyatt with my group too! We also had 5 ppl, and they didn't say jack diddly sh*t! I can echo what PoliWhirl say in terms of their staff... Super nice and accepting of us crazy kids/young adults lol in our cosplays of characters that I bet they've never seen before. It's a bummer that there was no free breakfast with the room, but my room was decently big enough for us 5. I slept on the floor because by the time I got back from the day's festivities each night both beds were occupied/claimed. lol. I had no problems with that. Next year my group might wanna do an AirBnB or something in the area if we can plan it in time. There's also a new closer Residence Inn by Marriot (Residence Inn Convention Center) opening on September 1st (or something early September) that I hope Otakorp partners with for con-rate rooms. They have all suites (Studio/1BR/2BR)... ..Anyway, my hotel experience this year was great. Better than last year when we stayed in the Comfort Inn Convention Center in 13th St NW or w/e it was.

    Backpack or Messenger Bag?

    Oooh past years at my various cons I've experienced this! I would carry my laptop around to use in panel rooms or during down time around the con centers, and my shoulder was super sore by the time I got back to my hotel that night... Ugh. Yeah I usually carry my laptop, handheld game consoles (PSP, 3DSXL, and more recently PS Vita), USB battery packs, charge cables, etc. I find messenger bags more convenient to flip open and grab stuff, but yeah backpacks are all around better for your health... lol.
