I'll be going.
Don't think I'll be cosplaying this year though.
I'll mostly be playing Smash Bros. Brawl(and other games that will be there) and just getting pictures with other cosplayers.
I'll also be partcipating in the AMV Contest.
Wish me luck.

Uh, duh! And I thought I was new. I went for the first time last year and had a blast. Totally worth the time and money and if you're cosplaying it's alot of time.
This year with my boyfriend I'm doing Dracula and Lucy from Castlevania and Zombie spiderman and Maryjane. Both his ideas so 09 I'm making him do Slayers with me or I'm kicking his butt. Kah!
But yeah there were over 20,000 people last year. It's crazy packed but mad fun. You should totally go.

I get sarcasm, ngsilver. Yeah, people do go - I wonder if they go again. I have, but after 12 years, I still haven't learned my lesson, so I'll be going this year. Actually, I had the best time since my first time last year, so we'll just have to see...

Rumormill: Epic. That's all I've heard. Otakon 2008 is to be epic.

I've gone from 2003 till now and I've had a blast every year. It's probably my favorite con (yeah over AWA *gasp*) and I intend to go this year as well!

I wouldn't know but that reminds. I should go pre-reg. I know you can do that now. All the other info was suppose to be up by now. I don't know what the delay is.

Yeah, I'll be there always. But, eh, any info on the AMV Contest yet? It's halfway through March already. GTA IV's almost out, for God's sake. I remember that the person in charge was changing hands. Or are they making some "serious" changes this year?

This will be the first year since 2002 that I'll be missing my hometown con. However, I'll be in the Virgin Islands where my father is going to be getting remarried. Nothing normally wouldn't keep me from being at Otakon, but this is truely important. Enjoy the con this year.

Game on for the party. Did this last year, and will do it this year. Just look for the two Ranma's, and you'll find me and Wurpess. August just needs to get here faster.
