Hidee Ho!!

I am Asreial and I've been a Dragon Con attendee with my best friend since 2008.
My nerdom is old anime, comedy, and well.. other stuff.  ;)
I've been a member of this board for a while (not as a lurker), but I've never really said anything.
I started Cosplaying in 2011 and plan on doing a lot more.

Anywho... that's me. :)
 :D


+1 for Asreial...and Welcome!

Hello all! 2014 will mark my 4th DragonCon. I can't wait. Over the past 3 years, I've been moving closer and closer to the action. In 2011, I crashed at a friend's place, and stayed in overflow hotels the last two years. But this year, I was able to make it happen and get a room in a host hotel. I was hoping to see of any of you lot have tips or suggestions for making that transition, or surprising ways the D*C experience is different staying in a host hotel vs. staying off site. (Sorry if there's already a good thread about this.)

Hiya All!!


My nerdom is old anime, comedy, and well.. other stuff.  ;)

What kind of old anime?  KungPowKirby and I are holding up the Anime banner on the Lights and Sound board: http://dragonconforums.org/lights-and-sounds/

I love Robotech (Macross) and the Gundam series.  I am currently watching Galaxy Express 999 and Ronin Warriors.

I will have to check out the Lights and Sound board. Thanks for the heads up on that.

Hello all! I am a first time D*C goer but a longtime con attendee. I am a huge marvel comics nerd with a heart for anime and am a rabid bibliophile (no touchy my books). I love costuming and can't wait to get to con and expand my nerd herd.

Hello Everyone!
I'm Mandy.  I attended Dragon Con in 2012.  I had a blast, but I was in so much awe of Nerd Mardi Gras that I didn't get to meet many people.  I'm hoping to meet some folks so I can have some friends at the con.

After my evil retail job not letting me take vacation to go last year, I have sold my soul to get the days off this year.  I'm already getting my Kaylee costume together and debating about a Ramona Flowers costume.  I'm 26 and from Alabama.  I love Final Fantasy, the Whedonverse, Torchwood, Harry Potter, along with a ton of other stuff.

Thanks for having me  :)

Welcome to D*CF! We're all ways glad to assimilate new people into "The Board"! We have Meet and Greet on Thursday before con which is a great way to meet your fellow Boards! We are also having a "Mid-Year" meet up in Atlanta in March if you'd be interested in that.  And +1 for doing a proper introduction!

Hi hi! My name is landon or Lala for short. This going to be my boyfriends and mine first major con. We've only attended local cons. And our first time on a plane! Quite excited for everything, from the parade to meeting new people and just a new adventure! I'm not going to lie I would love some advice for surviving. Particularly packing for the con, as in how do you all pack your costumes and props? And this is me being paranoid but what's allowed on the plane? I'm afraid my luggage being searched and my costume pieces or props being confiscated! Anyhow thank you!
You haven't seen half my crazy.

Hi lanimal, welcome to DCF!

I've always driven to DC, so I don't know for sure, but anything you think might be a problem on the plane you should probably put in checked luggage.  It'll cost more, but then you'll have the peace of mind of not worrying about some part of your costume or whatever being thrown away at the security check point.
