  2. 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
  3. Just FYI, the Women's Empowerment Expo will be held at the WEWCC on Saturday, June 15, 2019, from 10am -- 5pm. If interested, the url is: https://womenempowerx.com/washington-dc

    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*

    What are you playing?: 2019 Edition!

    Since I have a device that can play it, I've been playing some Dissidia FF: Opera Omnia as of late. Also a bit of Love Live!, BanG Dream!, and Revue Starlight...

    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!

    2019 Hotel Incidentals Reminder

    Thanks for that input! I'm glad someone actually read and took to heart my advice. EDIT: w00t for my 1,000th post!

    Idea for a future Otakon

    Wrestlers have been making more appearances at conventions between the standard comic-con bookings, Xavier Woods going to Magfest and PAX, and Kenny Omega partnering with CEO. I don't think it is outside of the realm of possibility to invite some indie wrestlers that have or are still working in Japan. In fact I think the STARDOM women's wrestlers would make for a great panel.

    2019 Hotel Incidentals Reminder

    Copy Pasting a reply I made in the Post-2018 section because it will be more visible here: That being said, if you are a student with a tight credit limit then OP's suggestion of having an extra $200 available is good advice.

    Thanks!

    Are all metal objects banned or only weapons?

    Hi Windseeker! Great question. As long as you don't use your kettle irresponsibly (i.e. chuck it at someone or use it as part of a battering ram) you should not have any problems.
  26. I'm contemplating a cosplay that involves a tea kettle. Not as a weapon but just a prop. I hope that wouldn't cause problems?

    PREFERRED NAME: Since I go with my online buddies, I like the nickname Triela. :3HOMETOWN: New York# OF OTAKONS ATTENDED: This will be my 3rd year!!The BONUS ? for 2019: I've seen a lot of awesome cosplay over the years, (have been going to cons for 15 years or so now) so I can't think of just one. I myself have crossplayed and (in later years) genderbent as Ellis from Left 4 Dead 2. It was my favorite cosplay and I did that for 4 years, I should bring that back someday...
