    Last minute things to do before Otakon

    I like the idea of taking Cold Eze! I might try something like that! I will need to make sure I have all my meds ready. I take a BUNCH of them! I organize them into 3 sets of boxes marked for the day of the week. 1 for Am 1 for mid day 1 for bedtime. Have to have something to help me sleep otherwise I will not sleep! Got confirmation for my hotel. Bought train ticket already! Printed out confirmation for hotel. Set up meeting time for traveling companion. Packed all clothing already. Packing clothing I can wash in hotel room and will dry quickly so I don't have to pack as many things. Glasses case. Sunscreen. Will buy water bottle at train station and reuse it during the whole con. Will need to add charging cords for my devices. Will need to pack last minute night guard for my teeth because I grind them at night!
  2. Hello All! I see a lot of potential things to see at this year's Con! I would appreciate some help picking out the videos and other activities I would like most. Here are examples of things I like: Most anything with Miyazaki as a director or Studio Ghibli. I loved it when Otakon had The Wolf Children in the past. Anime that I like are the whole Aria series including Aria The Animation, Aria the Natural and Aria the Origination. I like other series by the same director as Aria such as Sketchbook Full Color's I like a lot of Anime that involve folklore and Yokai themes such as Petite Yurie. I enjoy some anime with dark humor such as the Black Butler. I have read a few Manga. My favorite is The Bride's Story which has awesome illustrations and a great story. I enjoy Japanese literature. I have read a lot of Yukio Mishima's work. I enjoyed the novel, The Great Passage by Hiromi Kawakami. I have read some light novels too such as Dark Maidens by Rikako Akiyoshi. I enjoy Pokemon. Last year I participated in the Make a Wish Foundation Pokemon Go activity. My Cosplay was Espeon. This year, my Cosplay will be "Jigglypuff Victim". I'll have stuff drawn on my face and I'll have my Jigglypuff plushie! Here are examples of things I don't like: I am not thrilled with big Mech videos like Gundam and such. I don't like things that have a lot of violence or adult themes such as Kill La Kill. Most Anime that have themes about the characters being in a video game are not my thing. I feel that theme is overdone. So I would like some help sorting through the things offered this year. Can anyone help me figure out which ones I would like? Thanks in Advance. Joanne

    Recomendations for Studio Ghibli Fan

    I am not being lazy. I have looked at the schedule and have marked some things as potential to see. Many of them happen at the same time so I have to decide which is best. I had knee surgery this month. I'll have a scooter rented for the con. Still, I will have to monitor my pain level. Might just have to do 1 or 2 things per day. I have made these choices so far below. I have to weed through it and figure out which ones are the best.

  4. Hello Jigglypuff Fans! I will be a "Jigglypuff Victim" at this years Otakon! You know how Jigglypuff makes marks on the faces of people who fall asleep when it sings? Wouldn't it be fun if a bunch of us could do it together? I think we should use our own makeup to do it. If anyone has face painting experience, that would be great. You can leave me a message here if you are interested in joining in the fun. Joanne
