    Scooters in DC?

    Be careful if you do use the scooters. My friends and I saw one get stolen at a 7-11. Just watch where you put it or lock it up.

    Would Otakon ever try this?

    There are lots of things Anime Matsuri does that most cons or con staffers shouldn't do. I'd rather not start another fight here, so I'll leave it there. But I know having a cafe would probably run afoul of convention center contracts. Like, that's why no vendor outside of the official food vendor sells Pocky or any other candy.

    Would Otakon ever try this?

    I'd love to have Square Enix show up this year(if only so I can save on shipping and get a copy of Cactpot Party, lol) Plus, who wouldn't want to have an aetheryte in the dealers' room? Too bad we can't link it to another one, because they aren't real, lol.

    I've only used scooters and bikes from the company LIME, and it's awesome and affordable.

    Would Otakon ever try this?

    Honestly, this is not a bad idea. Given what Otakon has gotten the last two years (the concert event that usually happens at AX in 2017; the DBZ Tour last year), it would be cool to have a different "big" booth each year that would sell something cool like the Godzilla Store and the Gundam Store/Cafe.

    Would Otakon ever try this?

    I recently heard about Anime Matsuri having Toho as a guest and the company is bringing the Official Godzilla Store with them to the convention. I think that sounds like a good idea for a guest request. If Bandai Sunrise comes this year how about asking if the might want to have the official Gundam Store/Cafe set up in the dealers room? Also you could ask Toho if they want to do the same thing at Otakon.

    Scooters in DC?

    https://www.google.com/search?safe=off&client=firefox-b-1-d&q=dc+scooter+share&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiV39WU5K_iAhWBiOAKHT4DAa0Q1QIoAnoECAsQAw&biw=1680&bih=914 There are at least six different companies servicing DC; but I think which one you'd find depends on the location of your hotel. Price is generally about $1(for the first minute?), then 15 cents a minute thereafter. Good for quick jaunts, but it would get pricey if you have it out all day...

    Scooters in DC?

    So, I'm looking to secure my hotel and I'm looking at some a little further away than I generally like, but I want to spend less on hotels this year. Now, I see that scooters have popped up in DC. Has anyone used them there? I used them while being in Denver recently, and they made getting around a breeze! Having a hotel a little farther away doesn't look so bad if these scooters are around.
  12. Stephanie Panisello came to Los Angeles on vacation, and never left! Her thirst for adventure, passion for acting and love of video games has lead her to appear in over a dozen titles including: Doom, Evil Within 2, the Final Fantasy franchise, Blade 2: The Return of Evil, the Batman theme park ride Knight Flight as Poison Ivy, and the cinematic trailer for Shadow of the Tomb Raider as Lara Croft.

  13. Sorry to post so much, but just found out about Escape Velocity, to be held May 24-26, 2019 at the Gaylord Hotel, National Harbor (Washington DC/Maryland). Looks really interesting. It says it'll have science, technology, pop culture, Museum of Science Fiction, and has pics of cosplayers. The url: https://escapevelocity.events

    The 2019 Washington Area Travelers Advisory

    Also this summer, Maryland MTA fares will be going up again, as prescribed in the 2013 law that increases BOTH gas taxes & public transportation fares relative to inflation. NEW Rates

    The 2019 Washington Area Travelers Advisory

    ...and that's why I didn't post this sooner. There was no telling how long the FREE rides would last, which is why I was reluctant to mention it in this thread. Personally, I was expecting it to only last thru the remainder of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Still, this is a story to keep tabs on just in case.

    The 2019 Otakon Goer Roll-Call Thread

    Okay, really, this time: The BONUS ? for 2019: What was the awesomest or most unique cosplay or crossplay you have seen and/or worn at an Otakon? Prolly a friend's Kamen Rider cosplays. He was Fourze Base States one year, and I *think* OOO PuToTyra Form another year? I'm not certain...

    The 2019 Washington Area Travelers Advisory

    I'm not sure if this is the thread for this(but just in case) -- free fares on the D.C. Circulator may not last: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/trafficandcommuting/bowser-and-dc-council-spar-over-keeping-circulator-free-and-who-it-benefits/2019/05/12/0731e13c-71ac-11e9-9eb4-0828f5389013_story.html

    trolololol Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that it will cost one dollar, or that it will be sold to you by a gentleman with incredible style and flow. *goes to listen to ICW remixes on MooCube*

    Are all metal objects banned or only weapons?

    A kettle and some string can be pretty powerful.

    Anime Central (ACen) 2019 Roll Call!

    Who here is attending Anime Central 2019 (ACen) with me this year in the lovely Chicagoland area (Rosemont, IL) ? If you are do this: Name: Cosplay you'll be wearing: Day arriving: I'll start it off. Name: Gaspar / Shiggitay Cosplay you'll be wearing: I'll be alternating between my Senbonzakura Miku GB and my Street Pop Miku GB throughout the weekend... There's no way I can have something new in 2 weeks' time... Day arriving: Thursday, but at like 4pm due to travel from Baltimore via road trip with friends. Yay for the upcoming ~15h ride... We should meet up. My schedule of events (panels etc.) is pretty light this year, so we should be able to hang out!
