I am here, per the suggestion of someone else.

Won't be my first dance in ATL (was born in Augusta) but this will be the first time I tangle with Dragon*Con.

A suggestion by "someone else" - T^T - Rondo doesnt like me anymore! wahhh! (jk)

Welcome, RonDo!

You'll love DragonCon.

I'll make sure he does TDJ! Even if I have to buy him some Bookers! :)

I am a total newbie to forums of any kind. So basically, I don't know what I'm doing. I love wearing costumes and making costumes. I haven't been to Dragon*Con yet. It's my dream to be a vendor in the future. I'm hoping to make some friends here.

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.)

-niceguy


FYI, for anyone who cares, I have upgraded my forum name to Toaster.  I still think the "nice guys finish last" thought still applies here as I have missed out on DC for too many years.  I just want to switch to a handle I can run with for much longer.

I had "I'm a Toaster" as the greeting message on my car stereo for awhile!

Gratings and Salivations all...  wait... I meant greetings, etc.

I was at DragonCon in 2003 (11 years ago?!?!)  and thankfully what happened at DragonCon stayed at DragonCon (except for all those damn pictures).

I was volunteering for a game company (now defunct), and they gave me and my friends LOTS of time to do our own thing (without wearing any of their t-shirts of course).

Between 2001 and 2004, I went to over 30 Cons, and by FAR this was the most AWESOME!

Someone should start a DragonCon stories thread, because I could probably write a novella about what happened to me those 5 days.  Good stuff, GREAT stuff, and Damn I can't believe I missed that stuff.

Anyway, hello.

Hi,
 
RoseMcAli here, this will be my first DragonCon, the only other con I have been to is WizardWorld in Minneapolis the first year they started. No idea what I'm going to be doing there, but looking forward to nerding out. Major Whovian (I remember when the series was only available in scattered library VHS, and the dancing and embarrassing shrieks of joy when I found out it would be returning), but fluent in other breeds of SciFi as well as lit and comics... Crossing my fingers for something around Neil Gaiman returning to the Sandman.

Oh and steampunk costume. I will be steampunk costume-ing. Anyone who has been before, did you do multiple costumes for different days or just the one?

R

Hey guys and gals ! My name is Scott and I have been going to Dragon Con since 2008. I had the pleasure of meeting many of you at last year's Con and enjoyed the absolute H-E- Double hockey sticks out of a certain Drunken Jedis generously shared "Apple Pie" concoction. I am a huge sci-fi fan with Star Wars and BSG (both classic and new) topping the list. I also am a huge music fan who is interested in anything that doesn't suck ! LOL Look forward to interacting with you here on the forum and of course seeing you in ATL at Dragon Con !

Hello all!

This is Laura (Coi is my gamer tag and I respond to it too) and this year will be my 10th year at the con- I'm calling it my "Decade of DragonCon" :) Some of you may know me as that friend that's always hanging out with Lampshade Girl (Desire) but unfortunately she has said she isn't gonna make it this year :(

I'm into most things geeky including movies, games, TV, etc and I LOVE to cosplay! This year I'm excited because I'll probably dye my hair blonde for the first time since so many of my costumes involve blonde hair and I hate wigs haha

I'm not super experienced with forums so please let me know if I commit a faux pas or something! Also any helpful tips would be nice when it comes to navigating and such.

I am SO excited for the con this year!!
