  1. Northern Entrance

    The northernmost entrance that I know of is the Convention Center metro station, but that's an EXIT ONLY for a reason and I don't see the Otakon staffers willing to change that for 2018. Initially, I thought the L St. NW entrances were going to be incorporated, but those too were EXIT ONLY.
  2. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    The faerie is going to make a musical guest request: "Fhana". I think that band would be perfect to have over for the 25th con.
  3. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    The faerie makes a guest request...animation director & character designer Mai Toda.
  4. Otakon 2017 Cosplay Pictures

    I'm late! I'm late! I'm late for an important date! Well, late to the thread but here are my dozens & dozens of fotos I took from the 24th Otakon! Please ASK before reposting / resharing. FRIDAY SATURDAY SUNDAY Have a super sparkly day.
  5. Number of attendees?

    per FB post: 24,894!?!? That's notably less that I imagined!
  6. I can testify in support of this, I was on the MARC train just leaving Union Station when the storm hit, and it was real nasty. The train was swaying a bit more than due to the high winds. On the radio they issued flash flood warnings for DC, and in addition to the roof leak being mentioned, there were water rescues as well. Meanwhile in Glen Burnie, that same storm knocked out power at my house, and it didn't get restored until before noon Sunday!
  7. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    I second bringing Moni-Chan back. I also hope they can finally bring Colleen Clickenbeard over again (though they almost did a few Otakons ago). Here's an interesting guest request, how about having back some of the "outside" guests, those that were brought in based on that year's theme (e.g. Ray Villard in 2014 when the theme was SPACE). That could be a pretty fun way to look back at all the great people that hace entertained Otakon goers over the years.
  8. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Otakon 2015 badge acquire! The art looks really nice this year. I also read the special instruction that came with it, about those who already have their badge picking up their program book. It states that those goers can get them at either the Pratt St. OR Charles St. lobbies. Is this for Thursday, and if so, what are the hours for this?
  9. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Annville in PA to be exact, I looked it up. It's on the 422 between Hershey & Lebanon.
  10. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Especially that last sentence, and while still anxious down here, I'm a patient faerie, and hearing what I am today seems to be making that patience pay off. All good things come to those Otakon goers who wait (but not too long). BTW, have you staffers figured out a plan for mail-in goers to get their programs, NOT via the Thursday line?
  11. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    To answer your concern, all Otakon goers who chose the mail-in option will get an email notifying that their badge is being sent to your location. That email will also have a tracking number so you can check to make sure it gets there. The Badge Mailing FAQ on the registration updates page has a little more.
  12. Guest Request: 2015

    Oh my goddess, that was a fantastic announce! Romi Park is likely going to draw a big crowd yes.
  13. Guest Request: 2015

    You got that right, and those two I wouldn't mind meeting!
  14. Guest Request: 2015

    Believe it or not, Otakon doesn't ONLY bring folks with ties to anime, nor ONLY giant stars -- we've long brought up-and-coming, or otherwise under-appreciated, acts as well. Draft King is *most* of Stereopony, who did what by all accounts was an amazing show in Boston a few years ago -- so we know they can rock the house. But they're relatively new as DraftKing, and the sound is a little different, so if we can help them get some deserved publicity and attention, all the better. Remember, our mission is at least partly about bringing something new or rare -- sometimes it's huge, hard-to-get, well-established stars; sometimes it's awesome bands you might otherwise miss out on. The question to ask is: have we steered you wrong before when it comes to music? I hope you'll give them a chance, because these gals ROCK. ...and it's that mission that made 2009 my all-favorite Otakon. I too can't wait for this next batch of announces, especially those remaining Eng. VA guests you're teasing! Speaking of which, I want to submit a LATE guest request...Erin Fitzgerald.
  15. Guest Request: 2015

    I already have an idea of what one er two of the premieres will be, but if it's something else I'm pondering you Otakon goers are going to freak.
