  1. I'd bet there'll be at least one Wendy girl cosplay and possibly the colonel and Ronald.
  2. This is my 7th Otakon and it's always great seeing new people coming out each year. Twitter: The Artist In Debt @TomDent88 Cosplay: Ramba Ral from Mobile Suit Gundam
  3. This'll be my 7th straight Otakon. Name: Thomas Hometown: Bristol, VA Primary contact info: You can find me on Facebook (Thomas Wayne Denton, though I'm not on much) or Twitter (@TomDent88) Something interesting: Well, I got my teaching license and Bachelors in Art (my primary love), but couldn't find a job so now I'm building industrial electrical equipment and getting my Associates degree in Electrical Technology. Currently trying to combine the two fields into something interesting (like designing and building my own arcade cabinets).
  4. Thanks so much!
  5. That's awesome, thanks! I love stuffed peppers, but never thought of doing them in a slow cooker. That'd be great if you could share some recipes with me. It'd be a big help. The hotel we got has free breakfast, so we don't have to worry about that and we usually go somewhere nice two or three times over the weekend for dinner, but I'm tired of running to Subway or McDonalds for lunch and dinner every day. I figured this way might be a bit cheaper, healthier, and tastier.
  6. Thanks for the response! I've been thinking of different things I'd like to try. I know there's basic stuff you can fix like roast and potatoes, beef stew, etc. I'm kind of looking for not-so-common ideas to experiment with. A lot of the recipe websites I've looked through are annoying to navigate (too many ads, not enough pics or details, you don't know exactly what to click on...things like that). Also, I will definitely keep in mind to stay away from chili, lol.
  7. Names didn't come on the badges before. Just had your member number on the back and you can write whatever name you want on the front when you get it.
  8. I plan on cosplaying as Ramba Ral from Mobile Suit Gundam and possibly a Team Rocket Grunt. I've done both of these at Yama-Con in Pigeon Forge, TN (a much smaller and newer con). This will be my first time cosplaying at Otakon.
  9. I thought I saw a discussion like this in a thread last year but i can't find it. Anyway, I'm thinking of bringing a slow cooker (or crockpot) to Otakon this year to cut down on food costs. Any easy meal ideas out there for con weekend? I've got some ideas but I know someone out there has experience with this and can give some recipes and tips.
  10. Still reading the Spice and Wolf novels and Food Wars manga. Seems like I'll never be done with them, but that's perfectly fine with me.
  11. Awesome. Thanks!
  12. I've already registered, but I was wondering if there is a cutoff date for registration and badge mailing option and when that would be if there is one. Thanks.
  13. I'll throw in a couple of musical guest requests: BRADIO and KANA-BOON.
  14. Awesome. Thanks!
  15. Not sure if this has been asked yet, but since the AWM is its own thing during Otakon, will Otakon still have musical acts like every other year (i.e. price included with your Otakon registration)?
