    Bag Checks

    For my cosplay, I have a leather pouch/bag I made that'll be attached to a waist and shoulder belt. Do I need to go through bag check when entering the con if I only have this and no other bag and if so, do I need to remove it (It's a bit of a pain taking on and off, but I'll oblige regardless)? You can get a bit of a size reference in the pics. It's not very big.

    Backpack or Messenger Bag?

    I used to carry a messenger bag, but switched to a backpack. Feels better carrying stuff, even if you don't have that much. I'd recommend going that route, especially this being your first con.
  3. This year I'm trying to finish up my Link cosplay from Legend of Zelda. As part of the costume, I bought three small bottles (each one roughly the size of a baseball though not round) and planned to either carry them in a leather satchel I made or tie them to the shoulder strap of my satchel so they can be seen at all times. All three bottles are glass (I'm trying to switch to plastic if I can find ones with the right look) and I planned to make a small fairy to put in one and different colored water to look like potions in the other two (they are also corked and sealed with hot glue). So what I'm asking is this: Are liquid filled bottles as I described allowed as part of a cosplay and if they are, then are glass bottles allowed or do I need to switch to something else like plastic?

    Hype Thread!

    Gotta finish sewing a few odds and ends on the main outfit, finish my Master Sword, and decide how I want to do the hair and beard (don't shave and dye my hair or make a wig/beard combo). A bunch of small yet time consuming things.

    Hype Thread!

    I'm hoping to cosplay at Otakon for the first time. Planning on going as Ramba Ral and old man Link. Still have a ways to go on the Link cosplay though.

    Where is Parking?

    I reserved a parking spot using Parking Panda (which then sent me thru Spot Hero) at City Center Garage on 870 9th Street (pretty much right in front of the convention center) for Otakon weekend Thursday thru Monday for only $72. It's indoor, monitored, and 24/7 access (no in/out though). That was about the best deal I could find this year which seems great to me. Last year we parked at the Uline Arena garage for $28 but I couldn't find that this year and it was probably just a deal for the Uline Arena mall grand opening.
  8. My friends and I decided to take a weekend trip somewhere during the last weekend in June that's not anime con related (seems like that's all we do when we go out of town) and we decided to head up to Baltimore because we really missed it. We've got tickets to an Orioles game and I know there's an aquarium at the inner harbor but what other fun things should we check out while we're there? We're not really picky. We just want to experience some things we would always miss out on since we usually spent all our time at Otakon while in Baltimore before.

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    It would be awesome to have guests involved with Fooly Cooly. Especially since the new seasons are coming out. I'd really like to see Kari Wahlgren, Barbara Goodson, and have the pillows perform.

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Got mine yesterday right on time (according to the tracking number) and I did have to sign for it. One friend in my group got his Friday and I think one's was delivered to his house, but no one answered the door to sign for it, so he had to reschedule the delivery. There's two more in my group who haven't gotten theirs yet. The one who got his Friday lives in NY, me and the one who had to reschedule delivery live in southwestern VA, and the two who haven't gotten anything yet live in northeast TN. Hopefully they'll get theirs soon.

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    I'll start panicking if I don't see anything (badge or tracking number) by the end of this coming week. Until then, I'll have faith.
