  1. Happy birthday to me and all Otakon members

    Belated happy birthday! Thanks for your video -- it's really fun to watch!
  2. Anime NYC Nov 17-19, 2017. Anyone here going?

    Sadly, not on the agenda. But have tons o' fun Daniel!
  3. Number of attendees?

    Fantastic! Love being at a con and seeing tables for other cons -- really fun talking with the people at the tables!
  4. Number of attendees?

    LOL!! Hey, did you notice WEWCC's Food Show was selling Cookies and Cream Pocky? Yummo! Gosh, can't remember if Otakon had a table at Awesome Con, but if not, maybe having a table could reach a lot of people who travel to the WEWCC? There's quite a few vendors there with anime / manga items. Just thought it might be another way to reach more people.
  5. Hotels 2018?

    Wow -- Thanks for all the info! I didn't realize these things. Windseeker, that's probably a great rate you got, especially if that's the hotel you decide on! Can't wait for Otakon 2018!
  6. Hotels 2018?

    Er, I believe you need a government travel order to get those rates when you arrive at the hotel? For an office job, I used to do the reservations and paperwork (tons o' forms) for my bosses' travels. When making the hotel reservations you didn't need to have the travel order, but when the bosses arrived at the hotel, they said sometimes the hotel clerks ask to see the travel order, and sometimes they don't. Could you please double-check the rules with the hotel about those rates to see if you need a travel order? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I wouldn't want you to get in trouble.
  7. Otakon 2017 Review, Part Two

    Thanks a million for all your reviews! And seeing the attendees and convention center brought back such great memories!
  8. D.C. Otakon 2017 mentions.

    Oops -- didn't know that. Thanks for the info!
  9. D.C. Otakon 2017 mentions.

    That's really great that a business outside of Otakon would post photos. Terrific photos too!
  10. My Otakon 2017 Review

    Thanks a million for the vlog. Awesome hearing your comments! Sounds like you had a terrific time!
  11. Out of all the stupid things you can do at Otakon...

    The "second entrance" question was meant for the Photo Suite area -- sorry I didn't clarify. It seemed that there were support pillars or something along the wide-ish entrance to the area for the Photo Suite, making it seem like there was more than one entrance to get into the photo suite. And getting "offended on their behalf" -- was actually about the guy doing the video, not the Otakon attendee. Just tired of people mocking things which other people like, I guess.
  12. Out of all the stupid things you can do at Otakon...

    I remember walking into the Photo Suite area without anyone there checking badges. Was there a second entrance too? Perhaps if there are staff at the entrances to check badges, this all wouldn't have happened? Personally, I liked his video up until he said, "I don't get that My Little Pony s***" (around 1:44). Thought he was just there to mock cosplayers. But then he said some nice things about cosplayers. Kinda left a sour taste though that he'd talk about cosplayers that way, not gonna watch his other videos. Reminds me of the first Katsucon I attended and was yelled at for not knowing the rules. Found out about Katsucon on a Saturday morning, was at the hotel by noon, didn't have time to read the program or rules or anything (but did register, lol), walked into an Artist type room, where someone was being chewed out royally at the top of someone's lungs for something -- a few seconds later, found out the person being chewed out was me -- a staff person was yelling at me, "You know damn well not to wear a coat in this room!" Wow. So humiliating. Thank goodness almost all my other memories about Katsucon are good.

    Good luck with calling them or them calling you! At least there's always next year for cosplaying (or for your next con, of course). Thanks again for all the effort you put into making the vlog!

    Terrific vlog!!! Fun seeing you traveling. And can't believe you know Deanna! I follow her vlogs. Did you ever recover your bag? Can't believe your cosplay was in there!!! It's magic! lol. That's happened to me -- thought it was because of editing the post, but didn't see that here.
