  1. Hey folks! Now that hotel reservations are open for Otakon 2022, now seems a good time to invite people to join us on the UNOFFICIAL Otakon Discord Server. https://discord.gg/rcXMdHuESE Come chat with your fellow Otakon goers, discuss your cosplans, and connect with others for rooms or rides. And, of course, talk about anime! See you there!
  2. LARP has continued, has been in the program (pg. 13 of the 2019 program, for example) and even happened this year! OtakonĀ®: Live Action Role Playing
  3. Photoshoots (Cosplay Coordination) are scheduled based on if an attendee sign up to run one and if it got approved. The deadline for sign ups was July 8th with some final calls made after that date on Social Media made on July 15th. If a Danganronpa photo shoot is not on the schedule, it might be that no one signed up for one. https://www.otakon.com/activities/cosplay-coordination/
  4. Otakon on Instagram (otakonpics account) said on Friday the 9th that badge mailing is scheduled to begin July 12th with all badge deliveries completed by July 31.
  5. This isn't true. The Dealer Hall is open for 8 hours both Friday and Saturday. Typically 12PM to 8 PM Friday and 10AM to 6PM Saturday.
  6. If you have multiple devices, you could possibly attend both panels simultaneously! They said on the Otakon.Online announcement stream last night that there WILL be merch available!
  7. This stopped happening in the past couple years, but in the years prior to that, there would be a page on the website with information on Premieres and Special Screenings. It would be really nice if that would come back. I asked on social media this year if it would be back and got a "maybe" gif response, but nothing happened. Can we please get the Premieres and Special Screenings page back on the website to make these events more visible?
  8. Was it just me, or was there a serious lack of giveaway swag from the industry booths this year?
  9. Name of Hotel: Embassy Suites Was it part of the official block? Yes Price: $217 / night Type of room: King Suite The Good: The suites are spacious, with living area which includes a table and chairs, sleeper sofa, coffee table, arm chair, and a large TV. The room included refrigerator and microwave, and had a second sink on the counter outside of the bathroom, which made getting ready in the morning a bit quicker. The bedroom had its own large TV. Hot breakfast was included with a made to order omelette line and a line for buffet-style breakfast. Breakfast included sausa
  10. I used your playlist as the basis for a "Best of Otakon AMV Contest" viewing in the Unofficial Otakon Discord Server, so thanks for putting it together!
  11. I'm always grateful for your straightforward answers. Thank you very much for shedding some light on the attendance numbers.
  12. Good to know that the ones posted on the website is accurate. Is the care and thoroughness being taken with this year's attendance number a compensation for announcing the 2018 attendance of 29,293 last year, even going as far as releasing it in a press release 3 days after the convention, but then ending up over 1,100 off the accurate attendance of 28,116 on the website?
