So it begins... the wait for Otakon 2009!

Recommended Posts

10 months? Only 10 months?! Man, that's pretty soon, I think. Last time, we had 13 months between conventions! I somehow feel panicky and unprepared :$

Is it a bad thing that I'm already saving money for otakon '09 and not my wedding/honeymoon which will be 3 weeks later?

Maybe otakon can be the honeymoon? :P:D

Everyone who just can't wait should go to T-Mode next weeked!

T-Mode is the opposite of Otakon in size, just over 200 people last year, but is packed with musical acts, (I think it's seven bands this year?)

An entirely different feel.

I spent a good portion of last year's T-Mode sitting on a couch in the hallway chatting with Chris Ayers...

A relaxing anime con? That may be a good description. See my review and pics on the T-Mode page of atthecon.com

What if everyone who went to Otakon shows up? :P Well, maybe not...

I'm so psyched for next year. With my new job and school starting, time's gonna fly. I've already got two cosplays done, one just needs some minor work. That, and Otakon is going to be so cheap for me next year thanks to those godly hotel rates and 3 friends staying with me. Not to mention I'll probably be going as press for NProject, which equals free registration :blink:

Oh, god. There's allot to do for me.

I have to prepare four different costumes, along with four different day plans with various different people.

For 2007 and 2008, I was pretty much stuck around taking pictures of things and having pictures taken of me.

(especially when I danced for hours on end to Caramell Dansen and the hare hare yukai D: )

For 2009, I'm still probably going to end up carrying around my I-pod rick-rolling people or playing music and dancing :3

Also, I'm really excited because My friend Rizzie Stardust is Going to be with me the whole day Saturday and Dressing with me in tutu's and dancing randomly ;D It's going to be an amazing year.

Well, I filed my request for time off on Monday. Of course, with a realignment coming in February I don't know what my schedule will actually be in July so I had to request Thurs.-Sun. off.

I have officially (as of last weekend) started making stuff for my AA table... now to begin 6 months of work work work work oh-my-god-better-get-a-table-WHEN-IS-AA-REGISTRATION?!?! @__________@-work-work-work

RadishMart will be back next year and better than ever! I hope. I haven't ever NOT been able to get a table (because I am pretty on top of that sort of thing), but I still worry, especially since so much work is put into my products.

I wonder when the sites gonna flip this time.

Conventionally (pnoi) it should start flipping in the next month, with registration in the 2-4 weeks thereafter. But since 2008 stats, 2009 banners, and the event calendar for 2009 haven't even been hit yet, and with life being the bear it is, we shall just have to be content to wait on the edge of our seats for the next 27 weeks till showtime ... chanting "are we there yet?" the whole way.

I've been attempting to work on my writing portfolio for grad school admission, Katsucon next month, a short Eastery road trip in April since my boss is away anyway and I pretty much have to take a vacation that week, then Anime Boston, possibly AnimeNext, then OTAKON YAY!!

But probably most important should be the writing stuff.

I haven't booked yet and after Otakon 2008 my bank account was sobbing lol. I'm excited...and I need to start planning cosplays and figuring out my money situation, as well as who will be going with me this year. I usually don't book the hotel accomodations until about April (that may be late to some), but living in PA and not knowing what the future holds can make it tough to book so far from convention time. Until then, I'm usually in "omg Otakon is ______ months/weeks/days away!" and "Omg costume planning/construction!" modes :P.

I can't wait Otakon not just because I had a great time the past couple of years, but because it's so freaking cold where I'm at atm. July can't come soon enough!!!

I'd like to go again ('08 being my first year & all), but if i can't find someone to room with like i did last year, i don't think i can. But it would be nice.

However, i also don't think i'll get excited at all until it gets closer, but that's just me...
