I'm not at all surprised that I was the only one with an issue. It's too late now, but is there anything that I could have done, other than stand in the giant reg line again? And maybe some comments from staff about this? It's a pretty big concern for me, again, for safety and privacy reasons. I'm okay with my name being small on the badge, where you would have to get close and really look in order to see it, but having it be the largest name on there worries me.
(It would also be great to have some comments from the con on why the reg systems were switched so close to con, but I seriously doubt we're going to get any!)
Also thanks again for coming over to the Old School Gathering, your Lady Oscar was freaking spectacular in how ornate and accurate you looked - really amazing. I caught a little of The Rose of Versailles on Monday morning in the Nostalgia Room to refresh myself of the series a bit (I really tried to do this with everything I saw at the OSG that was being screened at Fanime) and yeah, pretty incredible.
I had a lot of fun! Thank you for hosting it. :] I'm going to watch the Project A-ko DVD I won in the raffle once I have some free time. It was easily the best gathering I went to all weekend, and the fact that I'm laughing and/or smiling in all the candid shots of the gathering that I'm in says a lot, I think.
And thank you so much! I'm honestly not a big fan of the series (shoujo ain't my jam), but I love her character a lot, so I wanted to do right by her with my costume. :]
(Also, not sure if anyone noticed, since this is such a tiny detail, but the sword I carry with Oscar is actually Juri Arisugawa's sword, from Revolutionary Girl Utena...mostly, I didn't have time to make a new sword for Oscar, haha)
