DandelionsWish & myself
This was my forth year at Otakon. It has become a yearly tradition although I do not know if I will continue attending.
I had a good time but I find it is losing it luster. It may be because I flew down and with all the extra costs of travel it doesn't seem worth the trouble, but I hope that when it moves to DC in 2017 it will give the con the boost it needs.
As usual, it was hot as hell outside and it was miserable to get food since there were lineups everywhere. Luckily I stayed at the Hilton which is connected to the convention center, however there were often lineups to get in or out of the skywalk.
Otakon is always a fun adventure and a sweaty mess.
Here are the Highlights: Crunchyroll, Avatar everywhere, New friends, Heat Exhaustion, and Good Food.

Siren-con is the name I dubbed it for the constant ringing in your ear from emergency services always being on call.
Sweat-con, could work just as well for the steamy hot weather we had all weekend. But who could really complain when you get dat ice cold watur and it's only one dollur.
Overall Otakon was nice for meeting new and old faces. For my second year visiting I enjoyed it, not as much as the last.
Here is the breakdown of my Otakon : Roaches, rats, heat, ice cold water, I'm on a boat!, fangirl moments and photoshoot.
