Going to re-introduce myself as I haven't really posted in years. 

Joined this board back in 09, and have lurked for the most part.

I've attended Dragoncon every year since 1999, I'm an avid costumer (still can't bring myself to say cosplayer) and once upon a time many years ago, used to do a few panels for the podcasting track when I did Cult of UHF.

Sorry I haven't posted in so long.

Well welcome back Rev Chumley....+1
I feel the same way about "cosplayer". Years ago when I learned what the word meant it made since. Costumer: makes and wears costumes - Cosplayer: makes and wears costumes and tries to embody the character. I think cosplayer used to get tossed around more with the whole anime convention thing. Now I don't think people even care....unless they are Dorks like me!

Hey all! So I technically joined back in the fall when I first decided I would be attending DC in 2014 with my twin sister (Sheriebeth), but circumstances led me to believe we'd have to cancel the whole trip, so I disappeared before I ever got the chance to introduce myself! I first attended DC back in 2005 (after attending my first con overseas in London during the summer of '04), and had such an amazing time, I never wanted to leave! So, of course, ended up back again in 2006! Both times, we stayed at the Marriott Marquis (though it was a lot easier to book a host hotel back then). Job changes and financial issues led to us taking a VERY long hiatus and we  haven't been to another major con since, sadly  :( Needless to say, very much looking forward to attending this year!

Hey all!!  I'm the twin sister  ;)  I won't rehash what Cheryl said, but I did want to say hello since this intro thread was started right after we disappeared the first time.  Many apologies for joining and then falling off the face of the earth.  Needless to say, when we thought we weren't going, it just became too depressing to think about DragonCon!

So hello again & nice to meet ya's!  We are both avid sci-fi/fantasy fans, pretty much love anything with the word "star" in it (Stargate, Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar ... you get the picture) and are big fans of the house of Whedon.  We are both graphic designers, and wannabe amateur photographers.  We loved our first 2 times at DragonCon and are itching to go back!!  Hope to meet some of you there  8)

Hello everyone.  Doctor Worm here (its a They Might Be Giants reference). I'm from NC. I also found out about this from The Unique Geek podcast.  I've been to Dragoncon before back in 07 and 08, but its been so long that I feel like a newbie again this year. I'm a big MTG, board games, and comic geek. I even work a second part time job at my friend's comic/card shop just to help feed the habit. I am one of the rare dragoncon goers that has never cosplayed before. Was going to this year, but with time getting tighter, and me not knowing what I'm doing, I'll probably wait until next year. Looking forward to making further posts and hopefully even making a few new friends on here.

Welcome Doctor Worm!! :)  You may not be as rare as you think, Cheryl and I have both been to DC twice, but have also never cosplayed!! Might get up enough courage for a wig or something silly this year, but certainly not enough time, funds or skills for much else :P

Welcome Doctor Worm. Thanks for the intro +1. I would like to work in a comic shop, Heroes in Charlotte would be awesome, but Miss Sin says I have to be able to pay bills and contribute to the household....blah blah blah

I'm steering everyone towards the M&G on Thursday, it will be a great opportunity to meet people...well, except for "You know who".....

Who am I? Hi all, I am Scott. I live in NC. Geek married to a geek raising geek generation 2.0. This will be my 12th DragonCon. I remember it when it was just one hotel. We have two kids but they do not join us at Con, at least for a few or twelve more years. Found this forum from the UniqueGeek Podcast.

Guess it's time for me to introduce myself here so here it goes.

Hello everyone I'm Colleen been lurking around on here since last year and been going to Dragoncon since 2011. I am a huge fan of Villains to the point that all of my costumes I've done are the bad guys. I actually consider myself a villain expert so much that soon I'm going to run a podcast dedicated to villains. As my name here says I live in Alabama and my most loved costume is my Bellatrix Lestrange seen below. I'm happily engaged to a fellow geek who turned me into a Star Trek fan so I'm happy with a fellow geek. I'm also a drama major at school which helps out in my cosplaying because I get to craft my acting talents. So anyways hello everyone and I can't wait to meet y'all at Dragoncon.
