This will be the first time ever going to an anime con, but looking forward to it. Hope it is a good convention

Also was thinking of taking the light rail down, to avoid traffic and parking, anyone else do that, does it work pretty good for this event?

I've heard the light rail is a good idea it just limits your amount of night time activity.

I was planning on going, but then things happened at my job where it looks like I have to work every weekend between now and sometime in August. I'm only about 2 hours from Baltimore too :-(

The light rail is pretty cheap ($3.50 for day pass), drops you off right at the convention ctr (camden yards or convention ctr exit) and runs until midnight Fri-Sat, and 6pm on sunday.

If coming from the north you can park at Hunt Valley for free and take the train in. You can also pick up the train in Owings mills.

IS IT SAFE CHECK THIS


Deadly month sees 35 killings By Luke Broadwater The Baltimore Sun

9 killed, dozens shot following violent 72 hours in Baltimore

It's been a violent 72 hours in Baltimore after a surge of shootings--some deadly across the city. For the year, 108 people have been killed in 2015.

Hours after Baltimore's mayor huddled with police officials to discuss the recent spike in violence, two more people were killed Monday — making May the city's deadliest month since 1999.

The two homicides increased this month's total to 35. There have been 108 homicides across the city this year.

Cosplaying Kallen (Wonderland March Hare) and Leila (episode 3 campfire dancing dress) from Code Geass. Maybe also Nozomi from Love Live.
Excited to see Laura Bailey and Toshiyuki Toyonaga. I actually guessed the guest for the Sunday concert so I'll go if I won a pass, but not if I didn't.
This will be my 10th Otakon, wow.

I am looking for someone who can take a small item each for three different guests to get signed for me. I would be willing to offer a few bucks for each one for the help. If anyone can help please let me know, thanks!!

Got some time freed up at work and Seriously debating on going to this. I cancelled my plans to go to Wizard World Richmond the following weekend so I can attempt Otakon. I have never been. Always wanted to go. Been to plenty of cons, just never an Anime convention. I live relatively close by. About a 2.5 hour drive away.

I hope I can make it being this close to the date. Hopefully see some CRs there!

I'm also going to Otakon 2015 was so much fun last year I couldn't resist.

Otakon has just released the schedule and it looks likes Crunchy will have a presence there, even if they haven't announced it yet.

Who else is planning on attending the CR panels?

curious, and maybe stupid question, as member i see one of the perks is front of the line access for their events, do their panels count? or what does?

That's actually an excellent question and I forgot that was a perk. I'll have to ask them, I'll post if they respond.
