I shall be coming again and look forward to the yearly trek up to Quebec for the major convention. C'est aussi bon quand je peux pratiquer mon francais. Sucks when trying to figure out accents when typing though, heh. As far as cosplay I'm not sure pending what I can fit in my luggage; maybe I'll continue my new simple summer cosplay as Totoro, oh ho ho!

As far as events to attend I do make at least 1 visit to the Dealer's room for things I can't get anywhere else or some nice artist alley items (looking for hard plastic case keychains this year, possibly a plushie if my budget allows and some collector card game stuff too). I do take a peek in the gaming area if I can, and I hear The 404s are back to perform their brand of anime-themed improv comedy that's worth a look at their shows.

It's a great atmosphere to visit yearly with some vibrant cosplayers as always to photograph too. I look forward to kicking off August in La Belle Province!

TOTORO COSPLAY :O I liked Myazaki's work so much when I was young ( and I still believe it's great) Totoro... Howl's moving castle...

Figuring out accents is still hard to do for any language...They're different everywhere ... I love accents anyways...Even the bad ones XD It's already something to learn a language,so..

Where are you from?? Any ways, I hope you have a great time there ^-^

I'll be going. I still haven't cemented in which costumes I'll wear but I'll be hanging out at my table in the dealers room and judging the masquerade. I can't wait to see all the fabulous cosplays. Otakuthon is always a blast.
Other than the masquerade, I look forward to Alodia's panel(s).

I'll probably wear a Sakura costume from Tsubasa Chronicles and a Korra costume.
I sell totes/bags, wings, headbands, cellphone/key-chain charms. A good variety of things.
As for Alodia's panel. I think it will just be a Q&A. Nothing posted yet about the specifics. But I think she will be involved with the masquerade in some way.

Sweet, a thread about Otakuthon on Crunchyroll!
It is good to see there are people here who go to Otakuthon. I don't know many people in my local circle of friends who use Crunchyroll as much as me so it is great to see there is interest.

I'm hoping there will be some Crunchyroll shows in the video room to show support for legal streaming.
I'm also hoping to spend some time checking-out the main events, the stage is so beautiful ^^

What's your favorite parts about Otakuthon?

Will be missing out on Friday since the travel from Ontario (pooling a bunch of us) will take that day alone. Saturday and Sunday will be a blast. At this time hoping also many come to The 404s Improv Comedy Shows throughout the weekend. There will be 2 Saturday shows, a Sunday Workshop and a Sunday finale. There's a ton of events that look great like the Sunday Brunch to the Cafes and Dealers Room I might visit this time. It's looking good at http://www.otakuthon.com/2012/home Oh and Korra rocks, another cosplay that I hope to see grow as far as popularity too. Oh if there are the hard plastic covering keychain charms that's what again I'll be on the lookout for in the Artist Alley this year.

Otakuthon has now started... And now I'm really upset. Our lift for friday played on us and can't go anymore ... Possibility 2 is not going today and my friend and I are basically stuck here -.- Well, at least we're going tomorrow and sunday,but it still upsets me.. I'm missing some stuff I really wanted to do How about you guys? What are you planning to do at the convention?

What's even more upsetting is that my cosplay has not arrived yet... So I'm going with plan be(lucy from elfen lied),wich does not work out exactly like I wanted.. My hair did not turn the same color I wanted, my shirt is way way way too big and I don't have glue for my horns x.x Well I got recognized twice and was taken in picture few times today
