It's back hons! This thread is a place where Otakon goers can stay ahead of any potential troubles getting to or from the 26th Otakon. I'm opening the thread early because the con is a little sooner in 2019, but also because Metro are about to consider one of FOUR different options concerning operating hours. They are: OPTION 1: Maintain current hours (Mon-Thu 5:30a - 11:30pm / Fri 5am - 1am / Sat 7am - 1am / Sun 8am - 11pm) OPTION 2: Revert to pre-2016 hours (Mon-Thu 5am - MIDNIGHT / Fri 5am - 3am / Sat 7am - 3am / Sun 7am - MIDNIGHT) OPTION 3 [Alternative 1]: Reduce weekend morning service, and increase late night service w/weeknight single tracking (Mon-Thu 5:30am - MIDNIGHT / Fri 5:30am - 3am / Sat 9am - 3am / Sun 10:30am - MIDNIGHT) OPTION 4 [Alternative 2]: Add an hour to Fri. & Sat. night and Sun. morn, but also increase weekend single tracking (Mon-Thu 5am -11:30pm / Fri 5am - 2am / Sat 7am - 2am / Sun 7am - 11pm) Each of these options will have an effect on how Otakon goers get around on Metro. More on this story as decisions are made.
The tradition is back hons. This is a thread by this faerie where Otakon goers can announce their presence for the 26th Otakon (25th anniversary edition). The format in which members should reply has been pretty much the same over the years, but I like to throw in a new ? with every new roll-call. 2019 is no different. The format is: PREFERRED NAME: HOMETOWN: # OF OTAKONS ATTENDED The BONUS ? for 2019: What was the awesomest or most unique cosplay or crossplay you have seen and/or worn at an Otakon? Please note that J-fashions (lolita/ouji, gyaru, fairy-kei) are excluded unless part of a character costume like Shinku or Ciel.
Would anybody else be interested in having pro wrestlers from New Japan Pro Wrestling, Ring of Honor, All Elite Wrestling as guests and/or maybe even a show? Anime fans and wrestling fans have a lot of similar fans, and a lot of wrestlers are fans of wrestling.
For next year's Otakon (2015), there are a few people I would like to see be invited. To all of the Otakon staff, these are the following people, and groups that I would STRONGLY CONSIDER inviting for next year: Dub Voice Actor: - Bryce Papenbrook - Cherami Leigh - Todd Haberkorn - Cassandra Lee Morris - Josh Grelle - Alexis Tipton - Kirk Thorton - Mary Elizabeth McGlynn - Jamie Marchi - Monica Rial - Caitlin Glass - Stephanie Young - Brittney Karbowski - Matthew Mercer Music Acts: - Linked Horizon - Kalafina The names that I typed in bold are the ones who I most would want to see be invited next year, and would STRONGLY CONSIDER bringing in. Caitlin Glass, and Monica Rial especially. Those 2 ladies haven't been there in YEARS!
