COMIC-CON ON WEDNESDAY WHOOOOO
I'll be there all 5 days! Looks like it's going to be pretty fun.Originally Posted by RKayDee
Yes, a con thread! I, too, felt we needed one that wasn't the ol' outdated "Mega-Con" thread.
I'm going to SPX in September, and hopefully to PAX East next year ( I hope Fangamer and Mega 64 are there. I do.)
I propose that we should have a forum meet up for peeps going to SPX. Yeah, I'm sure you MD, VA, and D.C. folks are sick of meet ups by this point, but come on guys! Come on.
I wont be going to Comiccon, but I know a metric fuckload of people that are and I am shacking up a bunch of them while they're hanging out SoCal.
Catch on fire with enthusiasm and people will come for miles to watch you burn.
Heh, I just meant aren't you peeps having another one this weekend? In any case, no one better get sick of meet ups. I hope that con will be awesome. (it's going to be my very first con!) I mean, Avi, you're right, the line-up!Originally Posted by Avi

Oops, heh, yeah, you're right. I retract my PAX East comment, then.
Gosh, this thread is so restrictive!

You kids today, with your money and/or living close to conventions! I went to a 'comic convention' here once. It was a room with people selling comics and related stuff. Comic fleamarket at best.
I used to go to Star Trek conventions here all the time, and then they stopped coming here. There was one again (as far as I know for the first time in something like 12 years) recently, but oh hey, nobody told me about it until the weekend it was on so I couldn't pre-register, and they're such ripoffs now, you have to pay to get in, pay to get autographs, pay to get photos with the actors... and pay out the nose if you actually want to sit anywhere you can actually see anything, so I didn't bother.
LISTEN TO MY WHINING!
It's not really a convention but does anyone HAPPEN to be GOING to the Scott Pilgrim Vol. 6 release party in TORONTO (Markham & Bloor for you locals I know you're out there) where Brian Lee O'Malley will be GETTING MOBBED by fucking NERDS?
I sure am! Shit's on Monday night though so like short notice and whatnot.
I'm going to Otakon!
Avatar from here.
I'll around SPX, and I am considering swinging into Otakon for a day just to look around.
Well, it looks like my old posts weren't merged correctly. I'll fix that.
But yes, SPX
I will certainly be at SPX.
I might be at Otakon, and even if I'm not, I would happily drop by in the evening or afternoon sometime to chill with MSPA fans anyways.
I don't think I'll ever get tired of meetups.
"I'll find something to put here later!"
Hey, I'll be at Otakon (as Nepeta, on Saturday).
I will be at Otakon, but not in MSPA cosplay. I will have some friends with me who are non-forumite fans as well.
I will be at Otakon, dressed as John, with a pre-modifications bunny allocated to my Strife Specibus! Odds are I will be cosplaying on Saturday (and POSSIBLY Friday night as well) and attempting to keep well-hydrated because I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the idea of wandering downtown Baltimore in this heat while wearing a full suit.
Probably not going to be able to go to Otakon, but until further notice I'll be going to SPX; it looks pretty awesome.
