Hi everyone!

This'll be my first DragonCon, and my first major convention since moving to the States from the UK. Looking forward to finding some people to hang out with at the con, and finding out what other peoples' costume plans are ^__^ For myself, I have some Steampunk going, a Welcome to Night Vale outfit, and a Fairy Tail cosplay in the works. Busy, but looking forward to it very much!

Hehe, hi guys ^__^ Thank you for the welcome.

Unfortunately it isn't Carlos. He is too perfect, scientifically speaking. I have a Cecil that I'm expanding on :p

I'm Sparky, and while I'd love to tell you that my nickname comes from a bright personality or a fascination with gadgets, it doesn't. I earned my "title" through a run in with an electrical current when I was younger. Lucky for me, I only fried a circuit... I hope.

As for what I can tell you that you won't find out in the course of conversation between now and DragonCon, I can't think of much. It's not that I'm not eclectic, it's just that... well... the list is stupidly long and varied. I like reading, writing, anime, manga, speculative fiction, plushies, cosplay, Nerf weapons, anthropology, weaponology, Pixar films, the Muppets, Steampunk, crafts, and archery. That's the short version. :-P

I began cosplay in 2008 with a Japanese Kei Zombie (Mucc) and went to my first convention in 2009, so I'm still very much a noob to costume construction and conventions. Dragon Con has been on my radar for a long time, but this year will be my first year attending and my first year with completely handmade cosplay (One from Welcome to Nightvale and one from the Fairy Tail anime/manga). I'm really excited and look forward to talking with and meeting you all. ^________________^

Sincerely,
Sparky

Hi everyone!

I stumbled onto DragonCon last year, just by sheer luck and wished I could join in all the fun.  Alas, I was only passing through Atlanta and the length of the registration line meant I would spend all of my spare time waiting to get into the con, rather than being at the con.

I will be at DragonCon this year.  Since I feel like I am the last person to experience DragonCon, my handle for this board is "niceguy", 'cause, as the saying goes, nice people finish last.  (Yup, I know, each year will bring a new batch of newbies, so I won't be the last.  Hurrah for that.)

Welcome to DCF Niceguy - my first DC was only for a couple of hours but it was enough to hook me!

Greetings, dcon goers! Severyx here, and this year will be my first DragonCon.

I got into the idea of going to dcon through a number of community friends of mine that go just about every year, and the experience sounds more amazing each year. This will be interesting, as I'm told that once you dcon, you'll never be the same. As an active geek in many forms, this sounds like just what I need.

Unfortunately, I have no cosplay plans for 2014. Life has a monopoly on my time/space/cash, so building them myself or asking others is out.

Looking forward to being there this year!
