The Convention Thread

Recommended Posts

So I got a car now, I just need to get a job to be confident in buying a ticket. I really hope this doesn't fall through.

I've yet to purchase my pass, but, I have a great idea for a group cosplay, if y'all are interested.

We all go as the Dread Pirate Roberts.

I might be willing to do Dread Pirate Roberts one of the days, probably Saturday. That said, it would depend on if my Halloween costume is up to snuff. If it is, then that's going to be my cosplaying.

I mean, I may *do* a costume, if my Halloween costume turns out, but not the Dread Pirate Roberts, though the amount of geek tail it would net me is tempting.

Will be attending Central Canada Comic-Con in 2 weeks (booked working the Ai-Kon promotional table. There is nothing to do at that con unless you're crawling in money. I, as has been established, am totally broke.

So, I am thinking about going to the Mid-Ohio Con this weekend since I oddly have the weekend off. But I really don't know if it is worth it. Ah, indecisiveness, how I do not like thee.

I like Mid-Ohio. It is mostly a vendor convention but they tend to have a lot of interesting guests and artists. Plus, it's in the better part of Columbus so I'd say it's worth it. I remember from last year that it tends not to be a horribly cramped con either.

So I went. It was entertaining enough. Not all that crowded and plenty to look at and spend money I don't have on things I don't need. Worst part was I parked on the wrong side of the convention center. Live & Learn.

Lucky. The guys I was going to go with got drunk the night before (I can't fault them since I was with them and could have stopped it) and wasn't up for driving the next day. Oh well. I still have Ohayocon to look forward to in January and C2E2 in March.

Considering the car repairs I had to pay for this weekend, it's looking less and less likely that I'm going to be able to make it to C2E2.

Only chance is if my raise goes through in time at work.

YOU CAN MAKE IT DUBS. WORST COMES TO WORST YOU CAN BUY THE BADGE AT THE DOOR AND CRASH ON SOMEONE'S FLOOR.

CAPSLOCK OF ENTHUSIASM.

EDIT: Also, have yet to buy the badge, due to most of my money going to fees associated with currency exchange.

Agreed. I'm sure you can find something to make it work out, Dubs. If you think it'll save money, take the bus or the train rather than drive or, if Koete is going, work out a carpooling scheme with him. That's the reason I set up the Facebook group, so if people hit snags, they have people to help them with alleviating expenses whether through lodging or driving.

Also, yeah, need to get on buying my pass also. As a reminder, the Early Bird special for tickets ends on the 31st of December. After then, prices rise from 45 for a weekend pass to 50. Onsite tickets cost 60. All prices are US$ and I don't know what that is in other denominations.

I am also unsure of my ability to make it as I am still inemployed, broke and in debt. Even if I do get a job right away I'm not sure if I'd be able to book the time off.

You know what's awesome. When you plan a tight budget around clearing debts and having money for a vacation.

Then you find out your debts are only half of what you thought they were.

My flights just slightly dipped in price, so I'm looking to get all my ducks in a row and book ASAP. I need to know which hotel was the cheap one people are staying at and which nights people plan on staying, I'm currently thinking Thurs/fri/sat/sun to cover all the days. Flights currents look like arriving Thursday 13:45 and leaving Monday at around 17:30. Unless I fly in Friday to save a day on the hotels, but if I do that I miss the first day and to be honest the cost of the extra day in Chicago for me is one more day in the hotel and a flight that's £10 cheaper.

Bought my ticket though, there's no backing out now.
