Been going to Otokan since 2009 and I'm looking forward to this year after spending a year abroad in Mongolia.  I'm hoping to present again this year.  Also I'm still trying to figure out a cosplay for this year, first time for everything I guess.

If anyone wants to hang with the crew and I, you're more than welcome to. Definitely wouldn't mind meeting new people and expanding my small social circle. Will be going with some friends and have our own hotel, drinking between us will go down during the night but nothing crazy lol. Except a cool rowdy bunch if anything :3

First time to a big con is always a bit nerve wracking, always best to rest and hydrate, when I heavy cosplay I sometimes forget the hydration but and then get wiped out.  You can always meet new people in line.  ( unless now it's no longer going to be line con) 

I'm Brett, I've done the past few otakons, I have a few more costumes in development usually theme is either retro video games or  sci-fi anime. Sometimes both.  

(Right now halfway built towards a khajit in an esquisite robe from morrowind done game accurate so it will be very silly ( one of the early things I wanted to do but never built and probably no one will know what it is) 

I have no idea what I'm gonna bring but I do tend to do all weekend in at least 3 if not 4 various cosplays I only go a couple hours out of costume. (Although I'm not hardcore enough to do pre reg in costume.. I did the past midnight pre reg line a couple years ago)

Hello Brett, yea I'll make sure to take proper care of myself and yes while in cosplay it's super easy to forget to do these things.

I went to Anime Boston alone and I definitely had some anxiety but it all worked out and I even made a new friend

This will be me n Hubby's 3rd Otakon. We're exited for DC! Happy to meet for drinks/hang out.

I'll be going as Roze from Today's Cerebus. On the very very very very very obscure chance that anyone else is cosplaying that fandom, I would LOVE to meet for photos!

My cosplay is pretty obscure only because it's a genderbend, but people figured it out and it was a great feeling. I know SOMEONE will know who you are when in cosplay.

Also, drinks sound good. Hang outs sound good too! I can't wait for this year!

On the subject of meetups, I'm surprised that someone hasn't set up a 21+ meetup yet.

@GalefreyRises are you doing one this year?

EDIT: it seems like @GalefreyRises isn't doing one this year due to venue.

Someone has to plan this meet up asap before it's too late. I thought it was being talked about in another thread with a place to meet up at in DC.

Been attending Otakon non-stop since 2001, will be attending the first Otakon held in Washington D.C. this year.

Would be awesome to make new friends, I'm frequently on Facebook so anyone who is social and would like to chat and make new friends, send me a friend request: https://www.facebook.com/ksweeley

My hubby and I have been going to Otakon since 2012 and can't wait to see how everything plays out in DC. We're also going this year with my sister and her bf and we're all staying at the Marriott Marquis. We're down for meeting new people!

Aside from my sister, we also play Pokemon Go so I'm sure we'll be running into many of you at the various raids and gyms.

I'll be cosplaying as Hotaru (Dagashi Kashi) and Yona (Yona of the Dawn). My hubby will be Hak (Yona of the Dawn) and Luffy (if he feels like it). My sister and her bf will likely be Asuna and Kirito.

I fully support this.. Also I think Otakon itself should have a meetup "panel" or speed-friending room.
