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.

I have never done this before... but since I got your reference before reading your post... +20 for the TMBG reference.

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.

Welcome to the board!! Just had to pop in and say that your Bellatrix cosplay is amazing!! LOVE the Voldemort too ;) +1

New to the forums and Second Year at DragonCon.  Really looking forward to this year.  My wife and I will be staying a couple blocks away from the host hotels so I'm expecting things to be a lot more fun this year (Non Host, Non Overflow hotel a few stops down the marta or a cab ride away which meant no sneaking back tot he room for a Nap/Refill Drinks/Food/Nooner)!

Greetings everyone. I am Druphis. Last year was my first visit to Dragoncon with my wife. We fell in love with the con and can't imagine a labor day without it. I have greatly enjoyed the 50 days of dragoncon podcast that TheDrunkenJedi has been a part of for the last 2 years. I even had a run-in with the boozesaber on thursday night last year in the Marriott.

My wife and I cosplayed Kreigersan from Archer last year. It was a pretty easy costume but it was tons of fun. I decided to jump on the forums because as our con goals continue to get more ambitious, I find that we seem to have more and more questions. Becoming a part of this forum seemed like a good way to learn and find answers to our questions.

Anyway, if someone can point me to a post on cosplay weapons, that would be awesome. I did some searching and found several discussions of getting the weapons to the con. I have also read the rules on the official dragoncon.org site. It seems pretty loose. Maybe it would be better if I started a post with my specific questions? Can I do that with so few posts on the site?

Anyway, thanks for the community. I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Already started posting a bit, but anyway...I'm HopeForHyrule (big LoZ/video game nerd) and this will be my first year attending D*C as I live in Maryland. I've heard plenty of awesome things about the con and stumbled upon this board during a random Google search. I go to plenty of cons, but I never really hang out with any fellow con-goers because 1. I'm shy and 2. I never know what to say to people when I first meet them.

So...yeah. *waves*
My thoughts are stars I can't fathom into constellations.

Druphis: Welcome to the board! +1 for the intro :
As far as the weapon policy....I would say follow what the website says but keep in mind, with over 45000 people in the hotels it may never be an issue. With my Resident Evil Costume I have two side arms and a CQB AK47 airsoft and I've never had anyone even bat an eye at me. Feel free to blast away with questions, this is very friendly forum so people are glad to help.

HopeForHyrule: Welcome to the board also: +1 for the intro : I envy you your 1st DC experience, it will be awesome and hard to match in the years to come. Don't be shy....most of us don't bite!

If possible you should both try to make it to the Meet & Greet on Thursday....you will be surprised at how welcoming and friendly everyone is....even TDJ.

I guess I should post in here...lol sorry

My name is Sean or Tigger as they know me in the Colonial Fleet (the loud group in the parade that shouts so say we all) and this will be my 12th year attending dragon. I have made friends/ family over the year that I only see once a year and soon as the con is over I start to plan for the next year. I am a avid costuming junkie and science fiction fan.

I do not know why I did not join this board years ago but I am happy to be here now.
