Anyone go to any cons lately?

Post by chiiruchan »

I've been so busy. I haven't had much time to actually use the computer. I just recently went to Otakon. It was fun... except all the walking. I didn't actually cosplay or anything though. I did spend way too much on the dealer's room.

Next up, Nekocon! And I hope I can afford a new dress to wear! And I might wear my Rilakkuma bear pajamas!! It was way too hot at Otakon for a bear suit!!

I was at Otakon too, spent most of the time at the Larp... (I Larped as Lemina XD and manged to make part of a police station into a Bank that I run). The Fire drill was epic, my dad took over 400 pics, and I had a great time.

The next con I'm going to is Ubercon that's in New Jersey, I'm going to be vendering plushy demons as well as few other things...

My boyfriend's cousin was in the larp a bunch!! I think he was some Frankenstein guy from Soul Eater. I didn't get many pics though. :P The fire alarm didn't effect me cause I was eating.

All during the fire drill you mean? :shock: Seriously?! I'd be running outta the building wondering if it was some doofus again or really a fire. I heard someone say someone brushed against the fire alarm on accident. Not sure I believe that though...

I remember one con I went to got in mega trouble cause people were jumping up and down on elevators... I don't remember what one it was... :| I heard the con got suspended for a few years... but I can't remember what one it was for the life of me.

The official Otakon explanation is that some prankster pulled the fire alarm. It wasn't stated officially if it was intentional or accidental, but considering you have to break glass to pull the alarm, it's rather clear that it was intentional. KF

I pondered going to AWA, but I can't afford it. I can't even afford Dragon*Con this year. It is bumming me out.

No no! I wasn't jumping on the elevator. Random people were. I happened to be on one of them and got scared to death. :?

Did they ever catch the prankster that pulled the alarm?

I'm going to Dragon*con here in a couple of weeks. I'm planning on being a little more gamer-heavy this year, though honestly I'll probably mainly end up going to the random collection of panels, and some of the later night stuff.

Do what most people do then, bum around the place until you find a dropped badge and then pick it up. Bam, instant win.

We might have to skip Acen next year. My wife and I have been regulars since 2004. It turns out that our daughter-to-be will be about four months old then, and well, that may not be the best time to go to a con.

I saw a Mia this morning. Took me a while to hunt her down, but I found her and snagged her picture. Wasn't a bad Mia either, plus she was real surprised when I walked up and was like "Hey! You're Mia!"

AWA, total bust until this morning, then it got better.

I'm thinking about going to Nekocon. If things improve and I get a job, then yeah, I'll be attending.
