OTAKON '08

The lives of two self-proclaimed geek/gamer chicks as told by themselves. Sadly, we don't have to exaggerate much from reality.

I am actually planning on stopping off at the bank on the way home tomorrow to pick up a money order for my Otakon artist alley table. ^^ So yes, I will be going and am already scheduled to share a carpool/hotel room with the bunch of SCAD friends I went with last year. But you are more than welcome to hang out with us at the con! I didn't register as a webcomic this year, mostly due to the fact that I do not currently have an updating webcomic.. XP... and though I plan on having my new comic started by Otakon, it still doesn't have a name or website with which to register it soooo.. oh well. I guess if I'm just registering under my name and not as a comic I'll be seated next to my friends I'm driving up with and not with Mara and Jamie... guess we'll have to do more wandering around then last year. XD

Mmmm...wandering around Otakon!

Yeah, I've been waiting six years (Gasp! :o ) for a chance to wander around Otakon again and I've missed it.

Once we find a place to stay, it'll be great to see you again and I look forward to your new comic.

Hey guys is Otakon pretty awesome? I've only been to A-kon and Animefest and I'm curious as too how awesome some of the other cons are in the country.

I've only been to Otakon once in 2002 and I had a blast, so I'm looking forward to going again.

This is the only anime convention I've been to but there IS one in New York City and another one in Boston. If I get ambitious sometime, I may check out those shows.

I'd love to attend one of those wacky California anime cons some day.

Otakon is huge.

Btw, I ended up not being able to go this year after all. XP

I am going to Otakon too. Just one day. I am sorry I have not been chatting for a while. I got distracted for too long. I'll try to be more attentive.
