If you had your badge mailed, you can't get an 18+ wristband on Thursday

Recommended Posts

Welp, I was one of many attendees of this year's Otakon who paid the extra $15 to have the badge mailed early.  Since getting a COVID wristband is mandatory for this year's con, they offered a special line at the Marriott for those who already have their badges (like myself) to get said COVID wristband.

Immediately after getting that COVID wristband earlier today, I moseyed on over to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center with the intention of getting my 18+ wristband (it was after 3pm at that point), only to find out that this year, the con officials won't let you do that on Thursday if you've already had your badge mailed to you as I have.  It seems that this year the con officials, in all their infinite wisdom, will only permit you to get your 18+ wristband a day early if you're also picking up your badge today.

The upshot:  Attendees like me who had their badges mailed in advance can only get the 18+ wristband while the con is actually happening, meaning we'll have to miss part of the con in order to get that particular wristband, as well as hope and pray the line moves quickly.

Hey Otakon:  Not cool, guys.
