(if this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it) So, yeah. My dream last night showed me and my friend at our hotel room on Saturday, and it was a few hours away from masquerade time. I had my costume with me, but it wasn't done. But it did show me that I remembered to bring the materials to finish it, which I did. This is probably a really good warning that I should finish my costume so that way this dream doesn't actually happen at the con (very time consuming mainly cuz it's painting, drying and cutting, and don't worry, I use newspapers) And trust me, I would like to work on it right now, but I'm in California vacationing (I knew I should've brought my costume with me to work on OTL) So, anyone else having dreams where they go to the con and have to work on a costume/forgot about it?

I already had a nightmare that all my cosplays were only half done so I ended up combining pieces of my Yoko and Miku cosplay together.

It was quite....interesting, but boy, was I relieved when I woke up and realized I had 100ish days til ACen, at the time XD

I always end up having dreams where the con turns out to be in the gymnasium of my old high school or something.

And I've forgotten my homework.

I always face the dreams where I'm only half finished...but I didn't bring them with me...and without cosplays...I'm naked at the con.....

Altho this year I had a more positive dream. My mom and I just finished picking up all the little things I need to finish up some of my cosplays....imagine how it felt to wake up and realize THAT didn't happen T_T

Dreamed I had a fun year and one of several things didn't happen:

1) Didn't run out of money due to someone else failing (Such as the room situation and relying on my ex-bf to get me roommates when I couldn't log on/join acen forums. He had three people, his friend lied to them and spread rumors and they ditched at the last minute on the weekend of Acen without telling me. So I had to pay 500-600 dollars and them as well.)

2) Didn't worry about a room like the previous years.

3) Actually had a decent cosplay (Didn't happen til 2007-2008)

IT was AWESOME. Took all the pictures, went to panels, bought whatever without worries, and just had fun without back of my head stress. :thumbup: Also ate chicken and waffles!

Haha, just had one last night!

I was just arriving at Acen, with my usual friends - when I opened my suitcase, then the car's trunk to find that my cosplay had simply vanished.
What a terrible feeling. I totally remember finishing everything (in my dream) and packing it before we left.
Well it later picked up when we were inside the convention hall and I . . . fused with the Hyatt's wall. Yeahhh, bizarre. XD

Oh, this is me this year.

My dreams seems to involve me forgetting things. Which is scary enough because I've done that before at previous ACens. :( Another dream I had involved my cosplay things disappearing piece by piece.

My costume is 99% white and I keep having this dream of getting ketchup down the front of it while eating.

Oh my god. I have these stupid dreams almost every single night now that it's getting close. One of my cosplays hasn't arrived in the mail yet, and I keep having the same dream that it just doesn't get here in time and I go without it. ;-; It's so sad..

One time before Anime Crossroads, I had a dream that we(6 people) got to the hotel room and it was about the size of a walk-in closet, with NO working lights or anything. And the toilet didn't work. But we stayed there anywhere because we needed a room.

Then they set up big tables of mashed potatoes in a panel room and everybody ate.

Well... currently I don't have a car, and am about 400 miles from Acen... and I keep having the nightmare that all of my friends show up at the hotel and I'm not there to get the room, which is in my name. That, and I keep seeing people constantly mocking my costume.

I already had one panic attack dream a few weeks ago. Earlier this week, while in the middle of another similar one, my dream self realized it was a dream so it turned into an "I'm going to do whatever because it's a dream" dream instead of an "OMG WHERE'S MY COSPLAY?!?!?!" dream. Now that things are coming together though, I'm not really worried much about ACen so I'll probably stop having nightmares about it.

I don't have dreams about ACen but I have forgotten a few little things I'd need from home after hitting the highway. I've been making lists since then to make sure. The night before, I wouldn't be able to sleep due to excitement and trying to get there as soon as possible because traffic is so packed up on the main street.

here's my recent one (has to do with the badge this time) I'm waiting in the Will Call line to pick up my badge, and you show the person (who for some reason wore a TSA outfit) your ID, and they find your badge for you. So, I show them my ID, and they told me that I didn't pay fully for my badge or something (and I know I did), so they wouldn't give it to me until I paid the rest of the amount. Makes no sense at all!

In my nightmare i was being chased around by people with paddles telling me that Soap Bubble is the holy land...though that was a good while ago.

I've had two dreams/nightmares so far this year...

1. My friend picked me up and drove me to the hotel we were staying at. (This is weird because my friend doesnt drive and I'm staying at a different friend's house, not a hotel, this year) As soon as we got to the hotel I realized I left all my cosplays at home. And then I remembered they were at home unfinished. And I started crying and begged my friend to take me back home to get them and she refused...

2. I was getting ready in a hotel with my friend to head over to Acen (different friend than dream 1). We got there and suddenly I was in this cosplay that I've never even considered making, yet was telling everyone I made (It was Fai from Tsubasa). The dream just got weirder from there because the convention hall was like the entrance to a hotel and it was littered with suitcases that I kept tripping over. And then for some reason we ended up in a bowling alley for a tournament while still wearing our cosplays...it was really weird.

Just recently had my first ACen dream of the year, the dream started out where me and my friends are walking around in the mall around here and while in Hot Topic we're all suddenly in our costumes. I'm weirded out because I'm in one of the outfits I know isn't finished yet, so I'm telling my friends how this outfit isn't actually supposed to be finished yet, and then I notice my necklace for the costume is missing so I start freaking out about how my costume is not finished. My friends calm me down and start telling me to finish my costume I have to start killing other con-goers, so I'm in the whole, "um... wat?" moments and fwoosh we're suddenly outside the convention center. My friends freaking run off while I run into the convention center and start killing people, while doing so I start thinking, 'Why am I doing this? This isn't helping me finish my costumes!' and then I wake up.

... yeah most of my dreams end up with people dying or getting killed, dunno why. >.>

Haha, I guess I have con anxiety. I've had a few dreams about Acen where I had issues with my lolita coordinates (not being there at all, mismatching) but when I wake up I think how ridiculous it is--as if not having cosplay or lolita would stop me from having a good time at the con :wacko:
But I guess since there's so much planning ahead for me, it's stressful!

Man...I would have dreams/nightmares when a conventions not even close to being near! >.< But so far for acen....I had an awesome dream!

*sighs fondly* I dreamt that all my cosplays were done and that they looked so professional (the material, the sewing, the whole look of them overall) ah.... :D...

.........................but then I woke up ;_; and Im NOT done with my cosplays. ;_;

Oh wow that's quite serious and slightly violent! Hopefully that doesn't and never comes true.
