Well everyone, it's just about that time of the year again. Here's a place for posting any plans, photos, musings, etc.
On that note, a reminder that I've pre-ordered tickets for the following 15 individuals. After taxes 'n fees, the tickets were $45 apiece. Please bring a $50, and I'll bring $5 in change:
Rye Bread Rapestove Felix Ovum Artyfag Ninny Wander Solus Lunes Barkeep Ursarkar E Creed BSD Ghostdivision Ghost Diva Demetrious Kota
I'll be picking up tickets on Thursday night, and thought meeting everyone for breakfast on Friday, like we did last year, would be a great chance to distribute passes. I have everyone's phone number, so I'll send texts to whoever isn't there so they can reply when they arrive. Alternatively, if you're planning to meet up later with someone who was at the breakfast, I'll give your passes to them so they can pass them along.
Does that Ihop a couple blocks from the con sound good to everyone?
Lastly, it'd be nice to have a last get-together on Saturday night for dinner, since people are probably going to leave at varying times on Sunday. Any suggestions for a restaurant? Some nearby places are P.F. Chang's in the shopping center across from the con over Cobb Pkwy, and Carrabba's Italian grill one block further. I can help spot for this if budget is a concern.
Okay, I'm psyched! Wander and I are rooming with Rye and will be (hopefully) coming with Balista. If he can't give us a ride, would one of you be able to pick us up in VA? It would have to be Thursday night after 10pm because that's when I get out of work. Fuck work...
Plane has landed, and taxi has brought me to my room 222 Courtyard by Marriot, Atlanta Cumberland Center. For breakfast tomorrow, let's try to meet at the Ihop by 9:30 AM. I'll have your admission packets and a bunch of 5's in change.
1. NOT TOO DRUNK TO TYPE MY TRIPCODE 2. NOT TOO DRUNK TO REGRET SEVERAL POOR DECISIONS --2A: MAYBE DRUNK ENOUGH FOR RABBIT TO FORGIVE ANY ERRORS IN THIS POST LOL GOOD LUCK 3. CORGIS. I'M A FUCKING GENIUS. CORGIS WILL TURN IT ALL RIGHT AROUND MANG 4. OH GOD WHY
Also: the Sunday pre-registration for tickets next year turned out to be for single tickets only, not group purchases. I figured y'all would rather pay $40 for tickets instead of $35 if it meant you didn't have to pick them up yourself.
Here is my own abortion of a cosplay, supposed to be Kyu-Kyu-kun from Yume Nikki. Didn't have time to properly paint him, so the faint coloration isn't visible in this shitty pic. He was effective for ambushing people at the escalators, however - the comments I got were freaking great.
