Re: Anime Conventions

Back in college I was the Assistant Head of Logistics of Otakon for ~4 years. Now that was some fun stuff.

I went to quite a few cons from 2002-2007... MegaCon, MetroCon, Yasumicon, Project AKON, OtakuCon, Anime EXPO, and a few I can't quite remember.

Always fun. Good people. Wore costumes. Got drunk. Laid many a nerd chick. Great stuff all around, lol.

My fondest memory was somehow becoming the judge of the cosplay contest of the only OtakuCon (renamed Kunicon at the last minute after my buds at Otakon sued them, lol) and being among the drunkest I have ever been... our anime club in Miami was hosting their Cosplay contest and someone brought a gong. I was recruited to be on stage to judge... and it was the meanest, funniest time I ever had. I just remember the con organizer telling us what an awesome job we did and the room spinning then getting a BJ a hot chick dressed as Asuka.

Cons are highly. Recommended. No time for most of them them now with work, but I will be hitting AKON this year, ha.

I've done Anime Boston a few times. It's awesome, but it's sensory overload. There's so much to take in it's not even funny!

I thought the convention in Nashua, NH was cool, you live right next to it practically and you never been, lol. I live in Gardner.

Re: Anime Conventions

Another Anime Con (October 14 - 16, 2011) - (Radisson Hotel Nashua - 11 Tara Blvd, Nashua, NH)

There are no industry panels but plenty of stuff to do. The schedule is now available.

Special Event -

The Bunny Lounge (21+)

Friday October 14th
10:00pm-12:30pm

Need a break from the crazy con activities? A relaxing place to enjoy a few drinks, games and feel the funk? Then come join the SOS Brigade at The Bunny Lounge! Relax in our groovy 70′s inspired lounge. This event is 21+ and IDs will be checked at the door. There will be a charge for drinks. More information on cost can be found at the cosplay/masquerade table, or at the event it self. Below is a list of rules and guidelines for the event.

Do not touch the bunnies
No lewd comments
Please do not dance with the bunnies without properly asking.
Female attendee’s are highly encouraged to attend.
While there is no dress code other than that of the convention. We request that female guests of the lounge refrain from wearing bunny outfits, as to prevent confusion between hosts and patrons.
Photos of individual bunnies are allowed by request only. Please do not sneak surprise photos, they scare easily. Any photography that is not of the event itself, or upon request, may result in the expulsion of the photographer.
There will be a charge for drinks. Details can be fond at the cosplay/masquerade table, or at the event it self.

This will be a 21+ event. You will need to show proof of an up to date government issued picture ID. At the door and when buying a drink.

There will be a limit on alcoholic drinks. Non-alcoholic drinks will also be available.

If it seems you have had too much to drink, you will be cut off.

Anything inappropriate may result in asking an attendee to leave the event. You will not be given a refund.

This is a one time event, so if you want to go don’t hesitate!
