Oh God  
Yeah... Um...


The week after next.


I'm so not ready for this con. At least we have hotel reservations. I also made reservations for A-kon, but I'm still not sure I'm going to that one. A-kon nearly blew chunks last year, so unless the guest list makes me want to crap my pants, I'm going to cancel my reservation and find better ways to spend my time... like sitting on my ass playing World of Warcraft... as opposed to hunting for parking and jumping through flaming hoops of dog crap to try and make the con fun.

This is kind of dissappointing... but I have to remember that the only reason I'm being so stubborn about hitting A-kon is because it's become a yearly habit to go. I have so much more fun at Animefest and Ushicon. And while it's sad that I might just skip A-kon, and forget about our panels for that con... I'm not going to spend stupid ammounts of money to NOT have a good time. Hell- if Otakon had announced that they had L'arc EARLIER, I would have canceled everything for A-kon, and spent the extra money to go see them. I know a lot of you on my list are on staff, and work damned hard for the con. I know you guys work HARD to make it the best you can, but te issues I've had with A-kon have nothing to do with regular staff. Arrrgghh. It's just frustrating.

Anyway, I'm debating trying to pull a costume out of my ass for this con, or giving up on the effort. I have one that's half- finished.. I wonder if I could finish it in time...?

I dunno about A-Kon either this year. The only reason I would go is to see my friends in Texas. My friends here go to AX every year and want me to go real bad. And yah.. I think everyone was in agreement that A-Kon sucked ass, blew chunks, bit the big one, etc.

Yeah.. the hotel problems were horrible. I thought maybe it was just because they were in the very center of downtown, and that parking and hotel issues couldnt' be avoided... but Animefest was in the hotel right under the spindel bally thing, and we had a reasonably priced parking spot across the street in under 10 min. Expo is so huge. I'm not sure if I'd want to go. If I did, I probably wouldn't cosplay, because we'd have to fly, and I wouldn't be able to bring the really huge costumes without shipping them or having baggage issues. I think that Expo might be a bigger con than I'd want to attend. The huge crowds can be fun if the con is laid out well.. but it's one I really don't know that I'd enjoy. The size of A-kon really doesn't bother me that much, even though it's big. But AX is so much more... XP

I completely understand.

If you do end up going to A-kon, let me know, and I'll comp you a badge again, and you can like, judge cosplay for me or something.

If I go, I wouldn't mind running another VK makeup thing for you. That was fun, and I really had more to share with people than I thought I did. I'll let you know for certain after A-kon releases the majority of their guests. It won't be for a while, though, since they still have a few months of guest aquisition in front of them.

Re: alice moon?
Hmm.. sorry, can't help. That sounds really random. I was thinking about doing a baiken costume sometime in the future.. but that's about the only connection I have with guilty gear cosplay. Don't know anyone named Alice Moon, though :(

I'm not ready either, and it's like 2 weeks away. Moo?

I was watching cartoon network the other day and I was like, man I should cosplay this super easy costume because it's great and the show is retardedly wonderful, but I need someone else to do it with me. So I'll put that off until later. Maybe we'll be lucky and I will finish something for this con. If I don't, I think there are like 4 or 5 costumes in my closet in Austin~ the rest are still at my mom's in Dallas.

You had better not be thinking about cosplaying that blonde girl from that Totally Spies! show :P

Noo.. I don't have the figure for those girls, plus I don't really love that show. I like it, but it's not awesome.

I was talking about Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi! But would that be anime cosplay, or bordering into Jpop? lol
