Its that time of the year again.
AnimeBoston2005 is this weekend. I registered last night. The lines were a little long, but because I didn’t pre-register my line was much shorter (oh the irony). They were amazingly well organized from what I’ve seen so far. Many people have been arriving all day. Anytime someone went downstairs, all they could talk about were the cosplayers. I’m really excited for this weekend. I’ll be there for most of the day tomorrow with Brendan and company and maybe sunday too with the Duke. I’m going to stop by after work today too so I can try and pick up one of the limited edition prints from C-A-D. That was tops on the Duke’s list and he isn’t going to make it in time before they run out I think.
It was kind of weird standing in line yesterday when I realized that this was the first time I went through all this without the usual crowd from Botcons past. I must admit, though, its nice to have a convention that is actually in my city and close by.
In a sad and worrisome twist of news, the convention in Baltimore, Otakon, has no vacany left at the hotel our group was shooting for. We have to plan what to do next now. This makes me really mad at my memory and procrastination. I guess we’ll figure it out.
