Hi Coi!  Welcome to DCF...you always have good costumes, so you'll fit in quite well here :)

Hello all!

This is Laura (Coi is my gamer tag and I respond to it too) and this year will be my 10th year at the con- I'm calling it my "Decade of DragonCon" :) Some of you may know me as that friend that's always hanging out with Lampshade Girl (Desire) but unfortunately she has said she isn't gonna make it this year :(

I'm into most things geeky including movies, games, TV, etc and I LOVE to cosplay! This year I'm excited because I'll probably dye my hair blonde for the first time since so many of my costumes involve blonde hair and I hate wigs haha

I'm not super experienced with forums so please let me know if I commit a faux pas or something! Also any helpful tips would be nice when it comes to navigating and such.

I am SO excited for the con this year!!

Welcome friend!  Glad to see you join the forum!  You are now one of our core 'peeps!'

Someone should start a DragonCon stories thread, because I could probably write a novella about what happened to me those 5 days.  Good stuff, GREAT stuff, and Damn I can't believe I missed that stuff.

If only we had thought of that:  http://dragonconforums.org/dragoncon-stories/   :P

Feel free to post stories there... unless they are... mature... in nature... in which case they should go here:  http://dragonconforums.org/mature-members-only/

and +1 for the post!

I am a total newbie to forums of any kind. So basically, I don't know what I'm doing. I love wearing costumes and making costumes. I haven't been to Dragon*Con yet. It's my dream to be a vendor in the future. I'm hoping to make some friends here.

Welcome!  Post and be sure to join us at the meet-n-greet.

Hi,
 
RoseMcAli here, this will be my first DragonCon, the only other con I have been to is WizardWorld in Minneapolis the first year they started. No idea what I'm going to be doing there, but looking forward to nerding out. Major Whovian (I remember when the series was only available in scattered library VHS, and the dancing and embarrassing shrieks of joy when I found out it would be returning), but fluent in other breeds of SciFi as well as lit and comics... Crossing my fingers for something around Neil Gaiman returning to the Sandman.

Oh and steampunk costume. I will be steampunk costume-ing. Anyone who has been before, did you do multiple costumes for different days or just the one?

Hey guys and gals ! My name is Scott and I have been going to Dragon Con since 2008. I had the pleasure of meeting many of you at last year's Con and enjoyed the absolute H-E- Double hockey sticks out of a certain Drunken Jedis generously shared "Apple Pie" concoction. I am a huge sci-fi fan with Star Wars and BSG (both classic and new) topping the list. I also am a huge music fan who is interested in anything that doesn't suck ! LOL Look forward to interacting with you here on the forum and of course seeing you in ATL at Dragon Con !

+1's!

I promise I typed out a longer introduction than "Hello everyone, I." But I'm not sure what happened to it....

Did you copy and paste it?

Yes, I did. I was really impressed there for a minute with your guessing abilities until I realized that this must be a common mistake. So no more copying and pasting. Got it.

I ran into the same problem when working on my bio. "The Forum" really does not like: ' or " and will generally cut off anything after that....

Hello all, this will be my second dragoncon, and I cannot wait. My fiancee and I went last year and absolutely fell in love with the con. We are in our mid twenties and spend the days in the science/skeptic/eff tracks, and the evenings enjoying the various parties and shenanigans that happen. Hoping to meet awesome people this year, and have a place to discuss the excitement about con throughout the year
