I'm going with my pal and that it. Neither of us have been to Otakon since 2000 so the increased attendance since then should be an interesting shock.

I'll be going by myself, like I have been doing ever since my very first Otakon in 2001. I have been trying to get one of my brothers to go with me to Otakon ever since 2003, he likes anime and I've been trying my hardest to get him to go to Otakon.

Well, so far I'm going with my classmate & his best friend going for their 1st anime con ever, a friend of 3 years going to Otakon for the 1st time whose been to AnimeNext & my best friend who hasn't been to Otakon since '04. Someone might be added, who knows, however I'll have an interesting group going with me this year, that's for sure.

Won't see them for over 1/2 the con anyway being a TCG, except for the last one who I've convinced to sign up as a Gofer :P None of my friends have ever Gofered before, this will make for an interesting con, I can't wait :P

Going with about 6 friends, most of which I met while in high school, and 2 guys I've never met before (friends of a friend). To be honest I'm trying to cut that number down a little. It's not that I don't want any of them to come, but things start to become a little cumbersome. I've given an ultimatum; everyone must pre-register, and they must do it by a certain time which is coming up soon. Some of my friends are absent-minded like I am, so I should be able to kick a few to the curb with that stipulation.

Short of hopefully running into people I might know, I'm goin solo. And then likely throwing myself into staff like stuff as much as possible to occupy my time. ^_^ Maybe I can make more friends with people who roam the streets of Baltimore at night too!

I'll be rolling with 11 of my closest friends. On top of that we'll be meeting some friends down there too. We'll be a large group in 2008. We're raiding Inner Harbor (WoW Reference) I wonder if the Ota Staff drops any good loot?

This will be my first Otakon and my original anime club kicked me out a couple of weeks ago (still waiting for an explanation on that one...). I guess I will be spending this con with whoever wants to pose in front of my camera... I could always use a new friend or two. Snatch me up if you need the company :)

The more the more fun. Never quite know how many people are going to be in my room until they all get there haha.

Well I know that I am going with one of my good friends. Originally another of my friends was coming. She came with me to Otakon last year, but this year she decided to pass and so I am going with another of my friends. Still trying to see if I can bug a co-worker or friend to come along. We'll be traveling from NYC and this is my second Otakon, while this is my friend's first Otakon.

I remember making friends randomly online last year while waiting for signarture from seiyuu's...

I'm coming down with three people to start. The bass player of my band, who couldn't afford to go last year but I convinced her to go this year (yay!) and two of her friends. One of them I know 'cause he's standing in for her in a show we're doing on Monday so he's cool. Dunno the other but all her friends are cool so I'm not worried.

And we'll be rooming with some of the guys I roomed with last year (I know two from last year are definitely going 'cause they've been coordinating the room, dunno how many others from the room last year will be going). Plus I'll be meeting another good friend I spent a lot of time with last year after meeting him in line for Half Blood Prince at the book store :P Good times.

I see a lot of people mentioning they're coming alone. That was me last year, my first Otakon and my friend dropped out on me last minute (I saw people mentioning THAT a few times too) but don't worry. You can meet amazing people like I did and have a blast and just have others to meet up with next year! I'll be cosplaying Lucky Star alllll weekend so if you see Akira, Konata or Haruhi Suzumiya Konata, that's me. Pull me aside and demand I hang out with you ^_^

And while reading some of the post responses to my boyfriend, I half-heartedly voiced how I wish he was coming with me (he's a dork to be sure, just not an anime one, so I pretty much never expected him to come with me) and he actually said if he wasn't starting his new job on the 8th he would have like to come with me *squeeee!* so it looks like I'll be adding his name to next year's list!

Actually it turns out I'll be solo... my friend dropped out at the last minute.. will be walking around attending scheduled events or roaming around playing cosplay photographer. Will be making notes from the events to do a con report.

I do know friends, so I will be hanging with them at some events.. so say hi.. because I am certain I'll be bouncing all over the place.

and I usually bring my friend Julia, this'll be her third year with me !

and now I got a properly working portable DVD player unlike last year, that'll make the car ride a lot more fun !

Whoa this is my...fourth Otakon (I didn't go last year) and like almost my 20th or so con, I forget I lost count!

But anywho I'll be going with whoever I end up rooming with (I have to pick who, I don't really want to room with strangers) and probably hanging out with my friends who I haven't seen since last year..yea it's been that long since I went to a con geez.

I'm surprised I'm even going this year. We didn't get a hotel until today..and it was really cheap too, so yay! I'm going with my girlfriend(she went last year and it was only the two of us), my friend Sharkzilla(who hasn't missed an Otakon since 2000), and my other friend who went to 2005-2006. I'm surprised that we're all going though, as only myself and the girlfriend were the only people interested before this week. :) Looking forward to seeing all the Otaku again. :)

I'm "officially" going alone. A bunch of people I know/friends will be there, but there's no one I'm going to meet up and hang around with the whole time I'm there. I'm a bit nervous, as I'm socially stupid when I'm alone, but I'll deal :)

I'm coming along with one of my best friends, but am rooming with two friends from my anime club, one of my room mates from last year, a few on line friends and several others that have similar interests. But I always run into other friends and people from prior years, so technically I'm never alone. ;)

Well... I'm not quite bringing anyone...

I'm being brought! :)

My bestest friend is a seasoned Otaku, so she invited me... then I met this great guy...

And since we're dating, I'm dragging him along!

So, technically speaking here...

My bestest is bringing 2 newbies!

(Everyone, wish her LOTS of luck!!)

All my friends had to drop out this year so I'm going by myself. This will be the first time I go to Otakon alone so I'm a little nervous. I'm gonna try my best to make a bunch of friends there though. I think it's always better when you have people to laugh and have fun with.

This year I'll be bringing two newbies...my bestest (Ai-neko) and her boyfriend. Hopefully, I'll be able to meet up with some old friends from cons passed and meet some new ones. I'm so glad to be going back since I missed 2007. :)

I'm going with one of my best friends. We usually flail over the same things so it will be a lot of fun.

In 2005 it was just me and my friend Jason. In 2006 and 2007 we brought along another friend. This year there are four of us.

Eventually the entire state of Maine will cram into my car and make the pilgrimage to Otakon. =0
