CHEMPHARM - that convention sounds great. If you have the energy for it!
LOL. I would not.

But maybe it's part of your program for "Getting Fit for Cosplay?" emoticon

I love conventions no matter what kind. I didn't go, but saw that this weekend there was the 'Steampunk World's Fair" convention in NJ. Maybe next year.

My DH, DS and I are registered for AnimeNext coming up 6/6-6/8 in NJ. I'm finally getting my sister to come, too. She isn't into anime, but is looking forward to going because I rave about my escape weekends.

I've never been to AnimeNext, but hope it is good. The programming last year didn't look too exciting, and the guests this year are so-so. But there is usually something that I learn. And it will be fun to see the reactions of my sister. Looking forward to the AMV's. My DH can't get off Friday, so the three of us will go early Friday, and I'm going to drive back for him (about 1 1/2 hours, especially during rush hour traffic). You do what you have to.

BusyMom911. Sorry for the late reply. I do not spend much time on this site. The convention I am going to is not related to anything we talk about on this forum. It is a West Coast Swing Convention that last 4 days and is essentially non stop dancing and dance workshops and contests. I am also trying to save money by not going to both conventions.

What convention ARE you going to that you would consider not going to Otokon?

Went to Katsucon 14. I am leaning toward not going to Otakon 2014. I think I need a little break since I have gone to 6 Otakon conventions since 2007and have another big convention I am going to the weekend before Otakon 2014

My next convention is Ushicon in Round Rock, Texas. It's just north of Austin. It's a small con, 21 and up only. (Not due to adult content, but to give older fans a place to meet together and not have to worry about under age drunk kids trashing the hotel :x. )

I have another small local con to go to after that, then nothing planned until the fall. I will probably hit up AnimeFEST in Dallas. A freind and I really want to try to get to Blizzcon one year, but tickets are so hard to get!

Yeah, Otakon is a b!t(# for workshops. I've been going for six years now and have yet to attend a workshop. I'm going to Katsucon in a few months' time. It's a new con for me, but I think it'll be awesome.
I want to see the Cosplay Summit things. Seeing all the cosplays has become my favorite thing about conventions. I actually JUST finished getting all my pictures posted from Otakon.
I didn't get a chance to go to AUSA this year, but I've been going since 2009. Luckily, as my college has an anime club, we get our hotel, transportation and registration paid for a bit. It'll only cost me $30 to go, plus food.
I also went to Tigercon this year. It was okay.
For having things to do and atmosphere, I like Otakon best. For relating and feeling like I fit it, I like AUSA at the old hotel best. Overall, Otakon is my favorite.

I've started late in life, discovering how awesome going to anime conventions are. My first was last summer at Otokon 2013. My DH and I loved it. It was a shame that the Matsuri was rain-shortened, but we managed to fit in a tour of Baltimore on segways that weekend. Discovered ocarinas, and purchased my first wig. Be prepared to be flexible. I had planned to attend 3 workshops, and didn't get into any of them. For the first one, we were there 45 minutes early.

We went to Nekocon over Halloween. Had a great time there, too. Took classes with Chin Hamaya Taiko drumming, Vocaloid panels, Pokeholics Anonymous, Jonathan Colton concert, learned how to play shogi, & discovered ABJD's.
But totally different. We got to do everything we wanted. Baltimore had about 35,000 people; Hampton,Va about 5,000.

Now, my DH had to pick his vacation days. So, here is what we have scheduled for 2014:

* Katsucon over President's Day weekend. - I am SO looking forward to this one! We are staying at THE hotel. The Gaylord is probably the fanciest one we will ever stay in. The cosplay videos from last year are great. Those costumes are wonderful. Then I noticed that Katsucon is sponsoring the World Cosplay Summit’s Eastern Qualifying round for the third year. No wonder the costumes are great. They will also be having a formal ball and cosplay chess.

* Tekko in Pittsburgh the first weekend of April and/or Zenkaikon in Lancaster the third weekend of April. (The Pirates start the season that weekend, so attending is a very good possibility)

*Otokon the first weekend in August. I just booked the room at the Hilton. It will be great to camp out there. And, the Orioles are in that weekend! We booked a room that looks over Camden Yards, so we can watch the game from our room (in between activites of course, like after we get back from the Masquerade at the Mariners Arena).
(an aside - it was cheaper to book 4 nights, including Sunday night, than booking 3 nights)

* Probably back down to Washington DC again for Anime USA the first weekend of October, and Nekocon again the first weekend of November.

I bought a couple wigs, but haven't had time to organize a 'real' outfit. At Otokon I bought those furry black leggings that I wore. And at Nekocon (cat-themed, as Neko means cat), one day I had leopard ears, leopard scarf around my hips, and the black-fur leggings. On the other day, on Hello Kitty's birthday, I had cat ears, HK big headband, necklace, earrings and colors. Just no tail. LOL.

Conventions are great. Nobody cares how old you are. Everyone talks to everyone else. Some kids even asked if we are here with our kids or just awesome parents. Told them the latter. I took my son and friend, but didn't see them all weekend except in the room.

I asked my son (32) if he minds that we are scheduling the 2014 conventions, and if he wants to go with us. He said that he definitely wants to go with us, because he doesn't want to be outdone by his parents. LOL.

I'm probably going to my first Katsucon and then Otakon. I made a goal that if I make it to 200 lbs by then, I'll go to Katsucon, but if I don't I won't go. That'll suck since I am essentially planning the trip as President of the college's anime club.

just took daughter and friends to Ohayocon 2013. I missed out on most of it due to school work but they looked amazing and had a blast. I hope when I take them to Matsuricon in August I am ready for it. Such a fun way to bond with my daughter. See my page for a pic of them!

i guess you would say it is a medium convention held in one major hotel.it is a 3 day con there are your normal voice actors and musical guest. there is a massive rave and a artist ally. you have your normal panels and of course cosplayers a muck. YouTube has lots of videos. one of them is called ask a anime character where we got to ask a anime character ( of course the voice actor is off stage ) it was a really good panel.

Matsuricon is in central Ohio - this year will be August 24 - 26.
Ohayocon is in central Ohio - it is usually the second half of January.

I usually go in street clothes to take my daughter and friends. This summer they have convinced me to dress as a character however we are at odds as to whom it should be. They are looking at me and and the characters trying to figure out who I look like the most. I think it should be someone I connect with or at least a story line I like. Now I am on the scramble to find something I like. Wish me luck!

I'm going to the same con I've been going to for years, Anime Expo!

I usually run into some on my high school buddies and I really want to surprise them by looking thinner. I think I can lose 10 to 15 pounds before July. Even if I can't I'm still going to have a blast.

Where is SteamCon held? As for upcoming conventions that I am attending it looks like Otakon 12 is the only one planned for now. I missed Katsucon 12 but It is not as big a con as Otakon. My daughter wants to go this real huge con that is held in California. I can't think of the name of it now but I have heard it is the largest con in the U.S.

Well, I certainly didn't get to 210 by AUSA. My next convention is Otakon 2012. I will be at 175 lbs by then is it suits me. I want to be a muscular fit rather than flat like most naturally skinny men.

I went to Youmacon this year, but I went solo because my friend from MO couldn't make it and my mom had to work emoticon But I am working hard to lose a lot of weight for Youmacon '12! It's the only local convention I can go to now since my mom is a travel nurse and it really depends on where she goes and if she'll be able to attend any conventions in the area ^_^;

Hello, I just joined the team. I'm planning on going to AX 2012 in LA and use it as motivation for reaching my goal weight. I'm looking for a weight loss buddy who is also going to AX 2012 so we can meet up at the con.

AnimeUSA in November will be my next one. My goal is to be 210 by then. I am currently hovering around 230, so I need to kick some tail and move it in high gear.

Yeah, I took 71 pictures this year and two people too my pic (although, I have to admit, both were not because I looked like my cosplay). The first time was when I was in my FMA military uniform and I was wearing one of those Super Saiyan "crowns" and someone thought it was interesting, so I got a pick there. Later, when I had changed out of my uniform top for a black T-shirt, and donned my fedora, someone thought I was Batman (don't ask me, I can't figure it out, I was in the convention center though).

Otakon 12 is probably a certainty. Maybe Katsucon in February 2012. It is hard to believe that Otakon 11 has come and went. I have to say it was a great time. My costume embellishments and enhancements definately were a hit. More people requested my photo this year than last year.

I'm not sure Thurs. will work. Chempharm and I are both working stiffs in our other lives, he's in DC and I'm in College Park. We went last year to pick up our entries on Thursday so we could breeze in on Friday morning and if you were there you may recall that they didn't open up the doors until almost 9 as opposed to 8 - which defeated the whole purpose of getting them the night b4. Based on that we haven't decided whether we're even going in on Thurs.

However, we are staying at a nearby hotel and so I think we'll be able to meet at some point.

The list of panels/workshops is out, though it wasn't scheduled the last time I checked.

I know we want to see BAD ANIME BAD, (and if you haven't seen it yet, you definitely should) so maybe we can meet outside the assigned room afterward.

I would think Thursday would be a good day to meet up. That way we're no bombarded with people but we can still say we're at the con. As long as it's not on Sunday, ridiculously late or during the Gaia panel, I can do pretty much anything. I'm planning on going to the Matsuri festival beforehand. I hope they anticipate the number of people interested in going to the festival.

I think it would be great if Otaku who are sparkers could meet somewhere for a few minutes and maybe get a picture together.

Once the Otakon schedule comes out why don't we come back with panels we plan on attending, see if there are any mutual times/places and meet?

Whaddaya think?

ps - chempharm and I are already a couple, so that's 2 already.

Otakon 2011. I can't believe it is just a month and half away. I need to start working on my costume enhancements and embellishments.
