As the legal representative of the Raptor Jesus, I support the call for re-engaging in battle.
In the process of said "Rematch," there will be a list of demands, rules, and so on for the match.
Also, I highly suggest that both parties sign a waiver, of which, I will create.

I thank you for your time, and know that my client, Raptor Jesus, does too.


Sweet. I wonder how it will work. Technically according to policy, both my sword and bow would not be allowed. An unarmed Link to fight a raptor is unheard of!

Oh, believe me, I want to. But, if it lands on the same time as REACTOR, I will have to go for REACTOR. Why? Because I am in college, and an art student. The combination of the two mean I am poor, and am literally a starving artist.

Also, since I live in Chicago, I have no car...because it's way too expensive to have one parked, here. Thus, why it's rather hard for me to make it to Youmacon, especially when I don't know that many friends that go there.

How much of it do you remember? I mean, other than Huggles?

I'll definitely be at Youmacon. I went last year, and all of my friends except me went the year before, and it's by far one of my favorite cons.

I'm totally going with a bunch of friends, Youma's about 15 minutes from me. I went last year and we had a blast for such a small convention.

Does anyone have costumes planned?

I'm going as Gunner Yuna (of course XD), Dante from DMC3 (A girl version), and possibly Seong Ming Na (spelling?) from Soul Caliber. My friends are going as Rinoa and Theif Rikku, girl versions of DMC Vergil and Nero, and some Soul Caliber characters.

Regretably, whether I get to go to Youma is up in the air now... but if I can attend, I plan to lose the crown and streamers on my Shadow Queen costume, pop on my stripey "witches hat" (which is completely finished) and some white gloves and a long pink wig and go as "Vivian".

Ill be there this year. This will be my first time going to Youmacon. I went to reactor last year and I was disappointed. Youmacon looks like a lot more fun. My sister may come with me too! Ill probably don the same cosplays from ACen this year too.

PLUS JOHNNY YONG BOSCH! They wont have him at reactor!

It will be fun, much smaller than ACEN, alot of the cosplayers go around in lines through the hotel and outside, plus the photoshoots are fun as well as what happens upstair, plus they have this con suite where you get snacks and stuff

I'll be at Youmacon... I kinda have to, since I'm the DH for Video Programming this year!

Which reminds me... go over to the Youmacon forums and tell me what you want to see... I've opened up a thread for anime suggestions for the video rooms.

I vote you just show Gunbuster and Eyeshield 21 on repeat. If people have a problem with that kind of awesomeness they obviously have no taste. Tell them if they want variety you can play Daibuster.

Then again its not like anyone uses the video rooms for anything other than napping anyway...I mean who watches anime at a con?

I'm thinking about hitting up Youmacon this year after my ACEN expierence.. it left me wanting more. If I can scrounge up the money, I'll definately be there.
About how many people does it draw in? Anyone have a rough guesstimate?

I'd say expect somewhere around 2k this year. Maybe closer to 2500

It was just over 2K for the 2nd year... I'm guessing closer to 3K for Youmacon 2007.

Thats perfect for me! I love ACen but smaller cons are more fun for some reason ^__^ I have a few ACen peeps coming with me so this should make for one interesting road trip!

So far, it looks like I'm deffinately going to Youma. This will be my first time, but I have friends who have gone there for the last couple years... so from what I've heard it's amaizing! And what I've read on this thread makes me want to go even more. Now it's just a question of which cosplays to bring... Anywho! *chibifies, jumps up and punches fist in the air* Youma or BUST!

It looks like a good chance my buddies and I are headed to Youmacon this year too! I'll have Lindsey with me (she created Ani-Coz Magazine) and KakashiVegas (if he can take that weekend off)

Crazy thing is, Reactor is right down the street from me, but I'm choosing Youma instead. None of my friends are going to Reactor and dealer room tables are way cheaper at Youma. We not only go for fun but business as well and Youma just seems more profitable. Plus I loved the friendly atmosphere of that con, it was awesome last year!

Hope to see you all there! XD

If they get a really cool guest that I like, I'll be more inclined to go. I went last year simply because they got Captain N on the Guest List. And if I'd known they got the SPD Rangers in '05, I'dve DEFINITELY gone.
