Final updates for the month!
A-kon is the oldest-running anime convention in the USA held annually in Dallas, TX. It's this weekend, June 1-3. I make a roadtrip out there my friends each year. The main point of this journal is to let you know what's happening A-kon weekend if you're attending so you know what to look for and when.
Highlights of this event calendar would include the costume meetup with ~DreamVisionCreations' Minccino and Emolga suits (as well as when you can most likely expect to see Toothless), the times you can catch Groudon out on the floor, and all the panels I am interested in attending. I'll be bringing Aerodactyl out of retirement for an appearance with ~BeastSoul's Kabutops too. Also not listed on the schedule is the Thursday "spirit walk" parade at 8pm, if we get settled in by that time I'll go to that. If you're interested, go check it out.
Also! If you want to keep up with my trip, I'll be tweeting whenever something worth mentioning happens
Also I will not be bring Shadow Lugia, she isn't ready for con-time. I MIGHT be able to take her her Denver Comic Con but no promises there either.
My con group consists of these awesome peeps
Anyone else attending? What will you be dressing up as? :>
How are you getting there? 14 hour roadtrip with friends! On the road all day Thursday (oh gawd)
What hotel are you staying at? Marriott
Which days will you be attending? Thursday 6pm through Sunday as late as 9pm
Who are you staying with? My brother Rey, Sorin, Sanyai, Rek, Draga, Mer, and Eric
How do you want to be addressed? Riley is preferred, but CanineHybrid, Canine, or Hybrid works too
What do you look like? 5' 6.5" with short black hair, (might be spiked) hazel eyes, apparently look like a guy from the back lol. I always wear a dark T-shirt with dark cargo pants. Most of the time I'll be wearing my Shadow Lugia hoodie or have my Riley hat on.
Where/how can I find you? Check out my schedule: [link] and/or look out for my cosplays
Do you do requests? Maybe a doodle
Do you do trades? Rarely
Do you do commissions? Yes but I'm not open for new requests at the moment
Will you be selling any items? Not for this con
Will you have Art in the Art Show? Nope
What is your main purpose for attending? To chillax- enjoy my first year ever NOT slaving away sewing in the hotel room! Hang with friends, attend some panels, and buy things I don't need!
Can I talk to you? Sure! Warning though: I'll easily talk your ear off.
Can I take pictures with you? Feel free!
Can I touch/hug/cuddle you? A handshake, highfive, or friendly hug is fine
Can I hang out with you? I won't have much time on my hands, when I'm wandering around the AA or dealer's might be the best time if you want to tag along, otherwise you'll just have to be following me around while I'm in costume or assisting other's with theirs, like the stalkers you all are
Do you go to parties? Nope, I'm probably more of a party-killer than anything. Never been to a room party nor care to.
What costumes are you wearing??? Shadow Lugia Hoodie most of the weekend during downtime/assisting Groudon. Aerodactyl otherwise. Check out the schedule for where/when.
What is the best way to reach you? Find one of my friends (anyone listed above, including Monoyasha/Ciarra and BeastSoul) or tag me in a Twitter post (assuming I can get to my phone of course).
