    How long does the meetup last normally? There is a photo shoot I may be going to that starts at the same time. Good thing is, it's in the Marriott lobby lol. Odd place to have it, but that is what is listed. I would like to try to do both if possible. If not possible, I will do this, especially after missing out last year due to plane delays.

    The meet up starts at 8:00pm, we understand that people run late due to driving, traveling, plane flights, delays, hotel check ins, etc. The list goes on and on, we usually are around the area for at least an hour if not 2. Most the time we try to stay around for about and hour and a half at least..if not more...

    I hope this information helps.

    Hey thanks. And thanks for the kind words regarding my mom. This DragonCon it will be strange not to hear from her, she was a huge fan of my costume and prop work and she would call at least once and ask how the convention is going.

    I'll be in my Avengers 2012 Black Widow costume and I truly hope no one tries to punch me. I just finished the last soldering on my "bonus upgrade props" for DC, but I'll probably still be working on the software for them during the flight. Aside from losing almost two days of build time due to 3D printer issues, the design & build went really quickly. My previous widow's bites were not very bright in daylight or flash photos. I came up with what I consider to be an elegant 3D-printed design that allowed me the make the new ones in a fraction of the time I used on the two earlier versions.

    This will be my first DC. I had seen videos from previous years, but the deciding factor for coming were: 1) the RPF meet at the very start, 2) recommendation from Silhouette Cosplay and 3) I was able to combine this trip with a business trip (alas, that means I will be leaving on Sunday afternoon).

    Were so glad to hear this...I remember my first Dragoncon 4 years ago...I will never ever forget it, I wish I could experience again for the first time...Every year you learn something new and new tricks...You will have a blast, trust me...Dragoncon hooks everyone in and then you never want to leave...I remember my first time, I forgot about my life my job, everything...It was like going to Disney world for the first time as a kid...hahah...In case you didn't see this the other times I posted it I'm going to post again...probably one of the best things you could watch to teach you your way around Dragoncon...totally worth watching the whole thing...it helped me, I hope it helps you...Can't wait to meet you...Safe travels..

    My packing list is literally "pack ALL the clean boxers and some shirts"

    I've taken up to 5 showers in a single day at one convention before...I don't want to smell like comic-con in submarine

    Yeah, wearing Arrow last year, the day I wear that costume will be the day I take multiple showers and breaks. Must not stink for photo ops.

    Glad to hear everyone is getting things in order...I still am missing a few things for one of my costumes...I should be fixing that in the next two days...Tomorrow is my last day at work, before my vacation begins...I took off Wednesday so I can get everything finished up. My best friend from Miami is driving up on Wed, and then were driving up to Dragoncon on Thursday, It will be his first time attending Dragoncon. I can't wait to see you all, I can't believe this year has gone by so quickly. Sadly I was unable to work on all my new costumes I had plans for this year. Hopefully all that will change now I'm back on nights. Needless to say I can't wait to see all of my old friends as well as make so many new ones...If your not able to make it to the meet keep an eye out for me these will be my costumes this year...I will be Neo and Ted most the time, Starkiller on Saturday and Samurai Ronin Deadpool on Saturday & possible Sunday...

    Oh poop. I didn't realize I needed to send another text to let you know I was attending again this year. Honestly, I am still trying to finish costumes and props and still get to the airport by 5:30 am. :-( Just wanted to give you a heads up I will be there. Kept my same Avatar. Hope I can still meet up and see everyone from last year!
