  1. All of the 2018 threads are locked, I believe. Perhaps post it in the General Discussions area? https://board.otakon.com/index.php?/forum/19-general-discussions/ That's just a suggestion. It's where I probably would have put the question once the particular year's threads were locked. The board mods may have a better suggestion.
  2. Yeah. I'm already having trouble remembering Otakon 2019! Otakon 2018 has completely slipped into the cobwebs of my mind!

    Otakon 2019: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    The Good: Once again, WEWCC scores highly for the S P A C E ! It's so nice not to be feeling like you're in a slow-moving line when you're just walking down the hall. The Membership! Every year I'm amazed at the awesome people that attend Otakon. Your patience when things don't work like oiled gears is inspiring! The Bad: (and not Otakon's fault at all) $21 for a "meh" gyudon bowl and a 20 oz Diet Pepsi in the food court. I realize the concession has bills to pay, but for that amount of money I expect more than a bowl of thinly shaved fatty beef and pickled veggie over steamed rice.

    Amazing Cosplay You Saw at Otakon 2019

    I did, sir. Your props approached CGI quality when viewed from the distance I initially saw you at (~30 feet). I momentarily forgot what I was supposed to be doing (directing people into Registration to pick up their badges) while I had a "WTF! How is he doing that?" moment. For just a second... I truly believed in magic! Domo arigatou gozaimasu!
  5. I had to get this topic started because I saw a Dr. Strange cosplay Friday morning that literally (yes, the correct term for it) made my jaw drop. He said he was going to be rocking Dr. Strange all weekend so I'm sure many got to see him. His costume, coif, and props were all top-notch. A spell book with green-glowing pages and other lighted props brought his ensemble over the top! I hope he won some award during the weekend.

    Schedule is Out!

    I see they're going to be showing Tensi Shitara Slime Datta Ken ("That Time I Was Reincarnated as a Slime"). That's my current favorite series, so... I've got to go change my Gofer schedule availability.

    Gomenasai I'm always more than fashionably late to the party.

    Question about being a Gofer?

    Welcome to "The Dark Side"! (a.k.a. "Gofer-dom") Once you've joined, you'll never look at Otakon in the same way again! ...in a GOOD way, of course. Hmmm... I attended Otakon Vegas 2014 as well. I think I need to add it to my signature.

    Scooters in DC?

    I drive nights for Uber in the DC metro area and can confirm that there are a LOT of rentable electric scooters in DC that are in use at all hours of the night. Metro is an alternative option up until midnight or so - when Metro service stops for the night. Uber/Lyft, etc. are other options, but if you're looking for one in the midnight to 3:30 am time frame you will probably be in a "surge pricing" area and the rates will be higher than you are normally used to. The majority of the NW DC night scene (especially Adams Morgan) on weekends becomes surge pricing as closing time approaches. For DC, closing time is 3:00 am for alcohol establishments. The following are some of the recent article headlines in the Washington Post (sorted newest to oldest) regarding scooter usage in DC: DC suspends Skip scooter service after second fire within a month. (June 19, 2019) More Washingtonians say drivers are bad than say the same of cyclists, walkers, scooter riders, (June 10, 2019) Nearly 1 in 6 D.C. residents use e-scooters, poll finds (June 7, 2019) Boom in electric scooters leads to more injuries, fatalities (June 6, 2019) Skip suspends e-scooter service while it reviews fire (May 31, 2019) An electric scooter caught fire in downtown D.C.

    The 2019 Washington Area Travelers Advisory

    The vote was likely influenced by the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) threat to withhold $1.6B in federal funds if Metro voted to run trains later into the night. After the spate of accidents on the Metro line, the U.S. Department of Transportation in 2015 assigned the FTA " to assume temporary and direct safety oversight of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Metrorail system." It was the January 2015 electrical fire in the tunnel and resulting death that triggered the U.S. DOT to take action. WMATA's excuse for allowing the electrical system to deteriorate so badly was that there wasn't enough "down-time" to adequately inspect the system before the next morning's service started. For WMATA to then consider reducing the down-time even MORE by running the evening trains later into the early morning hours likely caused the FTA to issue the threat.
