Very excited to be here. I've always wanted to do DC and am finally, in my late 40s, getting to go DC'18. Got rooms at Omni and will be there Thursday night through Tuesday morning. Now to finish working on the cosplay ...   :o

What do you recommend as the best areas of the forums to start on related to the fun? ;)

Aside from the vendor area where I'm gonna go broke and the panels, looking for conversations on all the fun to be had.

Well i mean more at the con; the online stuff settles down for a while between cons. It will pick back up in here in time for the half dragon in march.  (Where are you located? Maybe you can go. :) )

Hello, everyone.  My name is Roze and my first DragonCon was 2017, despite having been stationed in GA for four years.  I only really wanted to go see Voltaire perform, thinking I wouldn't enjoy being among other nerds, but I am so glad I was wrong!  DragonCon was like going home for me and I never wanted to leave.

I have already secured a room in a host hotel and am so excited to be closer to the action and not have to leave downtown before the MARTA stops running.  I'm looking forward to making new friends to enjoy the con with!

ETM Zhar, hello. I was there in 1986 when the SciFi convention was at the Hilton.
Attended DCon 09', 12', and 13'. Yes, I will be there this year. Stayed at the
Marquis, Hyatt and Hilton in the pass, picking a different one this time around.

Hello World!

This is our first DC.  We've been to a few other conventions, mainly Comicpalooza in Houston and Wizard World in Chicago.  The wife's been wanting to go for a while and its finally been budgeted for.  We're a couple of DC nerds cosplaying Teen Titans.  Kind of shy in most walks of life, but hoping to relax and enjoy the party.  We've got an air BnB just shy of a mile away, haven't decided if we'll uber often or just hoof it.  I can take it in the boots I'll be wearing, but my wife will be in heels.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Your lodging could potentially be somewhere near a MARTA station.
That'd probably be cheaper than taking an Uber or Lyft.

Hoofing it in late summer heat in ATL, probably not fun(especially in heels).   Plus, depending on the direction, could be hilly.

Anyway, Welcome..., and I'm sure you'll find Dragon Con super awesome.

Welcome! Things are a bit quiet but should start picking up soon as con gets closer.

Hope to see you around!
