I don't care what the date is(although this one is good), as long as there aren't any weddings or proms again :sweatdrop  

Though I had a great time at ACen that year, the people were very rude to the cosplayers and I feel that they were lucky that many people ignored the insults that were thrown at them... the prom people were definitely outnumbered. :cool:


I agree, I don't know who looked more confused... the prom and wedding people who "went the wrong way" and ended up in the anime zones or the convention attendees trying to figure out which show the prom/wedding people were cosplaying as. It was sorta like... is he supposed to be Tuxedo Mask? Is she Sailor Moon? Wait, why are there suddenly 20 Tuxedo Masks? And where are their masks? Heh! And yeah, the prom people were pretty rude, and yeah, they were definitely outnumbered. Of course, I don't think it's ACen's fault if other parts of the hotel and convention area get booked by other parties (like the wedding people, who really weren't in the way except that one whole area suddenly had to be cordoned off for them). My bigger complaint was the mad security and safety people who wanted to clear the stairs and left everyone confused as to how to get up or down to other parts of the con... But that's neither here nor there at this point, and I think ACen 2007 is gonna rock!!!

Yeah. The suspense is driving me crazy  

Hotel rates, pre-reg, ordering cosplay outfits. Stop the insanity!!!


I'm also anxious to know when pre-reg and hotel booking starts, but it *is* only October. I'm sure the ACen staff is working very hard and will get the info to us as soon as they can, right ACen staff? :heart: But yeah, I'd also like to get my arrangements taken care of as soon as I can. I thought the hotel room I had was really really nice and I'd like to be able to stay there again (the hotel, not necessarily the exact same room).

A note about the proms/wedding:

I remember that, what was even more hilarious is that those events were happening the SAME night as the Charity Ball for ACen ... and I was attending the event. Unfortunatly I had times where I had to be back at my room for certain times (Glomp Team Badges insert here) and so I'm running back and forth in my prom dress.
The guy herding the prom people tried shooing the otaku away from me cause he thought I was part of the prom and then the otaku thought I was part of the prom too untill I took my ACen badge out of my dress (yes from the top) and flashed it to everyone ... the prom herder looked confused while the otaku were clapping or nodding lol. It was all rather funny and confusing.

I agree, it's great for the hotel to have so many events, money and such, but I mean, too many BIG events at the same time is rather uhh ... hecktick for all involved.

That's a hilarious story, I love it!!! :heart:

Gotta say, those prom people were giving some nasty looks but it was really nice to have that feeling of "hey, those people doing their 'normal thing' are in the minority and all us weirdo's and geeks are just celebrating en masse and having a great time!" A great feeling of belonging! I wonder if some of those prom people were a bit scared.

Unfortunately, those prom kids were from my school. >>;; But I'm sure you can guess which event I went to. Hahah.

I'm sorry they were rude, the kids in my area are just morons. *eyeroll*

My friends and I didn't really have any problem with the prom people. There was this lady there for some kinda anniversary thing that we ran into in the skybridge. For some reason she thought all the cosplayers were there for it too and asked the way to it. It was kinda awkward when we told her we had no idea what she's talking about and she was all :confused:. But anyways, if there are other things like that scheduled, it just makes for more interesting moments.

Well, unfortunately, it is on Mother's Day weekend, but that was the date that we had to go with. The best people can do is plan accordingly, now that they know when ACen will be. :)

I can't wait to get the rates and times for the hotels, cause this year I'm the one that likely has to make the reservations...and my friend is coming from maryland to attend, so obviously he can't do it. I got that scared feeling people get when they haven't done something b4. :(

I would rather like a more end of May con, but w/e..not my choice.

I hope this year they finally print the Con shirts on black shirts...I hate the white, I know it's cheaper or w/e , but so not anime-fan friendly...plus looks odd ...

and whenever pre-reg. dates are released will be a great thing to get finished with..so I don't have to worry about stuff.

Hang in there, gang!

We're almost ready to go. Just give us a little more time...these things are delicate and take expert timing and precision handling!

Seriously, we're almost ready to go. There are just a few more things that we have to put in place before we are ready to launch.

And don't think that we don't appreciate your patience, because we do!

You guys are what keep us going and pumped to do this!

So just hold on a bit more, okay?

Thanks for your dedication and perseverance!
