    Don't worry about missing Sunday. I don't know if you've ever been before, but about the only thing to do on Sunday is the dealer room. I'm sort of surprised that more people aren't going! It's such a good time!

    I'm going. WOOO!! Just look for an orange and blue mohawk.

    Anyone want to meet up just PM me. I don't check this forum too-too often. So that'd be your best bet.

    Pardon Me,

    I'm sorry i don't mean to intrued on your thread like this because I'm not from Maryland. I'm from Connecticut. I was there all three days also dressed as Obi-Wan. I'm pretty sure I got pictures with all of you even thou I didn't have my camera on me most of the time. Anyway it was good to see alittle Star Wars at Otakon even thou most people didn't want us there. Oh well.

    Peace.

    I saw two, and talked to one. Do you remember talking to a BSG viper pilot? If so, it was probably me.

    I saw several people with mohawks, FID, but they seemed red/black, rather than orange/blue.

    My hair wasn't a true mohawk, but it was orange and blue. Quite bright orange and blue at that.

    Jedi, your pics are awesome! I agree that was the best looking Anakin there by a long shot, and you were the best Obi Wan. One of the other Obi Wan's I saw was just too young. I went as a Jedi on Saturday, one of the few women Jedi, and had a blast. I didn't hear any complaints, just somebody asked why star wars at an anime con and I replied Clone Wars. That was anime, imo. I had such a great time as a Jedi this year that I am going to do it again next year. I got some good pics of me dueling with Vader but alas, they are not posted anywhere. Till next Otakon friends!

    [face_tired] Wow. I didn't realize we were such a problem there. I also came back with The Manga resonce but that didn't appease them I guess. I just wish I could have had a chance to meet everyone there in Star Wars Cosplay. Oh Well, Till Next Year Kids.

    Peace.

    I believe I heard someone mention Star Wars manga. Dunno where, but I distinctly remember hearing it.

    I know there was a manga because it was the background of the Syracuse fan force for a while (i use to live there) i think it mostly was about episodes IV through VI

    I managed not to cosplay. That could be because my friends had only asked me to go in April and I didn't have enough time.


    This year I'll have a room at the Hyatt. :D
