Otakon Post!

I have enough money for Otakon now, so yes, I'm going! YAY! umeko_pyon will also be staying at my house and joining me on the trip to Otakon! Double yay!! We'll only be going for Saturday, so we've gotta make the best of it.


9:00 AM -1:30 PM: There's nothing that I particularly want to do during this time, so I guess I'll just go wherever Kirsten feels like going. I kinda want to watch "Welcome to the Space Show," but it overlaps with one of the things I'm going to, and I don't want to watch a movie if I can't see the end of it. Maybe we can check out the Dealer's Room for a bit? Though I don't plan on buying anything...unless I can find a Metallic Lagann figure from the Chozokei Damashii line for cheap. (I say Metallic Lagann because it's the heaviest of the figures, which means it's the only one I could be fairly sure of finding by weighing the boxes in my hands. Also, I'd really like a Lagann figure.)

1:30 PM - 2:00 PM: Gurren Lagann photoshoot at the Indoor Fountains. This is right in front of Video 1, and right before the movie starts, which makes it a very convenient time & location to meet up with some fellow Gurren Lagann fans. I'll be there with my camera. So if you see a girl with black hair wearing both a Pokewalker and Core Drill around her neck, that's probably me.

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM: Lagann-hen screening! You might say it's a little silly of me to go to Otakon just to watch a movie I've already seen on DVD several times, but hey, I've been hoping for an east coast screening for a long time, and I want the whole theater experience: to see it on big screen, surrounded by other fans. And besides, $75 is pretty cheap compared to how much it would cost me to fly across the country or to Japan, so there. Hopefully I can also meet up with ms_gamgee_89 here.

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM: I dunno. Follow Kirsten around some more I guess. I kinda want to watch "20th Century Boys Part 2," but again, that cuts into something I want to do. Maybe we can get some dinner.

6:00 PM - whenever: Pokemon photoshoot on the 4th floor. Kirsten is going with her cosplay, and I'll follow with my camera. I wonder how many people will be cosplaying Youngster Joey!

However many hours we stay after that: I dunno. If I get bored, maybe I'll pop in to watch "Genghis Khan," and depending on how long we stay, maybe the "Bandai After Dark" panel too. We'll see what happens!
