I was 19 years old, bewildered, and attending the first convention of my life. Do you remember your earliest anime convention? Newer fans may have missed it, but the nostalgia hit me harder than the tang of sweat and melting body paint in the stifling Baltimore summer. For me, Otakon 20 was a time machine to my earliest fandom memories. Twenty years of Otakon Even after 20 years, Otakon is firmly rooted to its origins. Never mind that the room barely even reached half capacity.

Otakon , The Cosplay By super rats on July 23, Every year people go through the trouble of building a costume and wearing it for everyone to see. I saw some great costumes at Otakon this year. The shows that are popular right now share similar palettes and style cues. I felt this made a lot of costumes blend together in a monochromatic sea where I probably missed a lot of good builds. This made up the bulk of the cosplay at Otakon this year.
A couple of times, I did hit the plaza where many cosplayers pose and gather, so I did get a few shots when it was convenient.
Also with what you were saying, I have thought about going to Otakon, Otaku con, and if those SOB’s weren’t so exclusive about it, E3. But, I’m not so sure that would be the best place to meet people seeing as how people are not there to hook-up, they’re far more interested in the stands and events.

Genshiken makes a major deal out of the club’s both current and past members visits to the same convention as Lucky Star. Both of these series additionally make a big deal out of a common but seldom-covered “activity” at these: Tohru and Kobayashi are both helping Makoto sell his doujin, but Tohru later attracts lots of attention from cosplay photographers with her meido outfit and wings and tail showing. Lucoa , on the other hand, is removed from site because her outfit was too skimpy. Fafnir tries his hand at selling a doujin full of actual working curses, but walks away without selling even a single copy.
Makoto and Fafnir later attend Comiket 91, but no attention is focused since they point out that it’s the middle of winter. Fafnir once again fails to sell even a single copy. Comic Books In the Sandman series, a hotel puts on just such a convention It’s billed as a ” Cereal Convention “. Poppy asks what the theme is, suggesting Doctor Who , Anime or Steampunk.

It was a 5 day trip for me-I was driving alone for the miles and I wanted to be safe. It was a long distance trip to a place I’ve never been before. The thing is, 5 days passed so fast it felt like a 2 day trip. I wanted to arrive at the hotel before 5 so I could avoid the nasty traffic of Baltimore. Driving down there went better than what I imagined. Got there in 6 hrs.
I saw some great costumes at Otakon this year. I wish I took more pictures of them, but really, I hardly took any pictures (~75 shots) because I just didn’t have time and I didn’t feel up to fighting the crowds.

Guide to MegaCon This will be one of the last anime track events at MegaCon this year and a grreat way to wrap up the convention experience. We keep updating our karaoke track list every convention so we will have some new songs in addition to a lot of old favorites! Here are some guidelines: Karaoke is first come, first serve. Make sure you show up to the event early and sign up as soon as you can so you can get the chance to sing.
You may sign up for another song only after you have sung your song. We will know if you try to sign up several songs at a time. We try our best to have as many fun karaoke songs as we can, but it is not guaranteed that we will have everything. We will not play your CD or hook up your MP3 player. That takes time and we really want to get in as many people singing as possible.
What we have is what you get to choose from.

The Gagged Girl Just a girl who likes getting kidnapped, bound and gagged and likes to tell stories. Oh, big-time otaku over anime! You might see some of the same blog entries as over in my fetlife account suzyisgagged , but you will see different stuff here as well! I was sitting in the back of the van, on a blanket, while two men in latex hoods were checking the rest of the straps. My kidnapping was pretty simple. I was taking a shortcut in an alley, taking no notice of the one car that went by me, so why would I have noticed the van?
It slowed down next to me, and just as I turned my head, the side door opened and arms reached out, grabbed me and pulled me in. I was so shocked and surprised that half the straps were on me before I even thought about fighting back. Shortly thereafter, we parked and got another passenger. A woman wearing a leather jacket zipped up, jeans and combat boots came on. She sat down in front of me and smiled at me with perfect teeth.
Her hair was black and bobbed. I couldn’t stop staring at her eyes; ice blue. She did an inspection of my bonds.
