Hello all first time attending Dragon Con.

I just got passes for my girlfriend and I. She is a huge cosplay/anime fan, video gamer. We will be in Atlanta for the Cubs vs. Braves game Thursday night Aug 30th. Going to make it a long weekend for her birthday. Don't know what to expect, but i hope my girlfriend likes her bday gift!  See ya there!

Hi everyone! New to the forum, but I have been attending DragonCon since 2011. I literally have a countdown clock sitting by my framed piece of old Marriott carpet, so I'm not hyped at all.

Hi everyone - even though the forum is a little "slow" right now....it will heat up!

Hey all. Attended my first DragonCon in 2015 and it's a priority every year. This is my first year not staying at a friend's place in the area - excited to have a hotel nearby instead of making a 45 minute trek from the suburbs!

So, I'm not technically new, but I had to make myself another account, because it wouldn't let me log in to my first account, and it also won't send me a password reset email as promised :(  Oh well, excited for my third Dragon Con nonetheless :)

HI!

I am LuckyLegend

This will be my 2nd D*Con and am more than stoked.

When I prepared last year, I thought D*Con was like every other con and was only coming to placate my sister.

Then I experienced it. (mind blown emoji)

This year, I'm all in and wanting to know all that I can to become a 2year veteran.

So any help, obscure tidbits, or obvious advice is completely welcome.

Thanks for letting me wander.

-LL

Welcome Luckylegend74 and Temple!

Make sure you look at the Meet & Greet Thread - we would love to see you there.

A group of us are having drinks at Trader Vic's Wednesday night at 7 if you are already in town

Hi! I've made a post.  I just found out about this board. 

Steve jobs helped start Apple, NeXT, and Pixar?  Not sure if I answered that correctly.

Hi all - just found the forum when someone directed me to it from the main DC FB page when looking for karaoke. Glad to be here. This will be my 3rd DC. From Birmingham, AL. Whovian, My Little Pony, Pokemon. All over the place. Can't wait to meet you all!!!

Hi all!
This is my 1st year attending DragonCon and I am super excited! I would love to meet any couples who are interested in saying "I DO" while at DragonCon.

Howdy hey, everyone!

Even though I've been told it's better to start small, this Dragoncon will be my first ever convention. I'm super pumped to experience what I've only seen in pictures and videos! Can't wait to see so many other geeks, nerds, and fangirls/boys in their element!
