I'll be there cosplaying up a storm and helping out at the Crunchyroll booth.

I'm also looking forward to the panel with Masao Maruyama, the creator of Madhouse Studios: Vampire Hunter D, Ninja Scroll, Cardcaptor Sakura, Trigun, Perfect Blue, X, Boogiepop Phantom, Chobits, PitaTen, Abenobashi Maho Shotengai, Gungrave, Gunslinger Girl, Black Lagoon, Kiba, Nana, Tokyo Tribe 2, Beck, Monster...

So what do you have planned for Otakon?

I'll be at otakon this year, sadly not cosplaying. Probably buy a bunch of stuff in the dealers room, check out panels, screenings and such, still waiting to see the final schedule before I plan out what I'm going to do there.

I am gonna have to see The Secret World of Arietty, and The Aging Otaku: Anime Fandom and Getting Older looks interesting. Its a shame Crunchyroll's panel is running during Arietty.

Does anyone have any advice on Cosplaying? This will be my first Anime convention, and I do not want to go overboard and burn myself out through the experience...
My main concern about Cosplay is: is it usually acceptable to Cosplay solo, and how is an obscure character (from the 1980s) generally reacted to? (Specifically, City Hunter's Ryo Saeba. I am talking about the original Anime character, not the new Korean drama version.)

Cosplay as whatever you want, so long as you have fun. I'm sure some old school anime fans will be thrilled to spot your costume. Cosplaying solo is fine. When you cosplay as a group you are more likely to be recognized and stopped for photos.
