I'm part of con suite staff, I'm looking for a room Friday night. Anyone have "openings" please message me :) would prefer an all female room in their 20's but I'm not that picky

As a diehard FMA fan, I feel obligated to attend Anime Midwest. I just hope I have enough money for a hotel room! >.<

I'm contemplating my cosplays for this... I might be making a new Motoko Kusanagi outfit for this one. I'm so happy that the schedule is out already AND I got a program book at ACen! That's truly amazing! I think this year will be a lot of fun, and hopefully more space helps. Though I feel there's so much going on for a con so small...that's a great feature right there. I finally got the weekend off of work so I am basically set! Just gotta cosplay fitness up and make my Motoko cosplay!

Buying my badge tonight. Will be there all day Saturday for sure, maybe night time Friday, and possibly Sunday. Figure I pay $5 extra in case I do come both Friday and Sunday in addition to Saturday.

As far as Cosplay goes, probably won't wear anything Friday (maybe Burger King/Sin Cara mask?), Roger Smith on Saturday, Sunday ...... ????

My boyfriend and I are hoping to go. After A-Cen last year, the two of us along with our roommates decided to take a break from it and go to other cons. They went to Anime Milwaukee, and now for us Anime Midwest. Right now, it's all dependent on whether or not we can save up the money to go (we're figuring $800 to $1000 for room, badges, food, gas, and spending money) and if I can get that Saturday off from work.

But if we can go, it'd be our first time going to Anime Midwest as well as our first convention as a couple (we got together about two weeks after A-Cen last year, and haven't attended a convention since then).

Hotel room is reserved, and badges are registered, but gotta wait until payday to actually finish registration. I'm getting so excited; going to this con for the first time, plus the first weekend trip away with my boyfriend. <3
