Anime Mid-Atlantic

… still have no idea why I am going this year. I’m slightly pissed now because Otakon announced that JAM Project is their musical guest. T.T So why did I original want to go to Anime Mid-Atlantic? The original reason was because it was going to be a heck of a lot closer, Arlington, VA. However, it got kicked out of the hotel and moved to Virgina Beach. So, my next reason was that I’ve never been to Virginia Beach so I might as well go. Such a weak excuse. >< The con isn’t appealing to me right now, other than they announced on cosplay.com they are trying out an alternative hall costume contest for those of us who are sewing-machine-challenged. Other than that, I decided against doing karaoke at this con and I generally have the same feeling of dread I had about Katsucon… and Katsucon was nearly a disaster. Not completely… but very close to being one; the second worse con experience ever only topped by Otakon 2005 for the simple fact that I barely remember Otakon 2005. Weird.

So, I’m going to Anime Mid-Atlantic because I need a summer con that is slightly less-expensive than Otakon (though, I’m still trying to sneak that in somehow because I really wanna see JAM Project), I wanna go to the beach and… well… that’s it for now. I have to wait until September to catch up with Johnny Yong Bosch again (unless I put money down for that new Bleach card game with the special voice actor signatures on them… unless they are Japanese voice actor signatures… any voice actor signature is a star in my book =^_^=) and my main con for this year besides disaster-con in February will be the awesome AnimeUSA on Columbus Day weekend! YAY!!! I can’t wait until October.

The good thing about Anime Mid-Atlantic is that if it is anything like last year, the Utena cosplayers will have free reign over the con. Plus, it seems the Ghost in the Shell cosplayers are emerging this year and some other cosplays from anime/games I haven’t heard off. I personally am now on a Code Geass kick now… of course I’ll be watching the Bleach cosplayers, looking for Trinity Blood & Vampire Knight cosplayers and finally all us Utena people out there (w00t for Utena!). So I’ll be parading around in my various incarnations of Anthy handing out roses and I guess taking pictures for once. Don’t ask, I have mixed feelings about Anime Mid-Atlantic. It will either be okay or it won’t be okay. It doesn’t matter, I still have AnimeUSA to look forward too.

BTW, my two Anthy wigs and one Inuyasha/Yazoo wig came in the mail last week. They are all very awesome!!!!!
