Otakon 2012
« on: May 05, 2012, 05:43 »
Where: Baltimore Convention Center, 1 West Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD
When: July 27 - July 29 2012
Site: http://www.otakon.com

One of the biggest cons I go to. I can't wait to hit it up! Anyone else on the forums going? Maybe we can have a little meetup? I also have a couple spaces in my hotel room, if anyone needs a place to stay (can't do rides, since I'm taking transit to get there). Would be great to meet some fellow members of the brigade! I'll be there in my Momiji and Meira cosplays. If you want in on my room, shoot me a PM, and I'll give you the details! :whisper:

I'll do some research and get back to you. I'd like to go to a con, and yet I don't wanna go. We'll see..

Lol. That's not really a factor. The problem for me is getting to maryland and also asking my parents about it.

Hmm train cost would be like $10 to new york and then $50 from new york to baltimore (2.5 hour ride) and i think thats one way. Then the cost of the con. Then food. Like $200 bucks not counting merchandise! Good freaking lord if only i could drive. Maybe i can learn to drive before the con :x

I'm trying to get room shares in my room down to $130 for the weekend, but I need people for that. Most I'll charge people is $190, but hopefully I won't have to do that. The con itself is $70 for the whole weekend. Plus food and merchandise. It's worth it to go; I just spent about $500 on a con, between airfare, food, and hotel. Totally worth it! :yuush:

Gen, if you get a heart attack from eating too much meat, and die, I'm going to kill you. Then freeze you, and then kill you again.

Killing is too mainstream :/

How about torture him and make him a cripple for the rest of he's life?

Back! And let me tell you, it was a blast! Best con ever! You guys will probably get mad at me for not taking any pictures of my own, though. :TT TT:

I'll do a full blog post about the good times we had later. :meaw:
