Title: Sakura Con 2009
Post by: Jerry on February 19, 2009, 10:41:21 AM
Sakura Con
http://www.sakuracon.org/
Washington State Convention Center
Seattle, WA
April 10th ~ 12th 2009.

Well, I'm jumping the gun a bit. Mostly because my roommates are going and I will probably not. >_<
*I punch economy in the face* but regardless, is anyone else going?

I hear its a pretty decent Con, minus getting rained on since I hear that area is notorious for cloudy and rainy weather, but I would figure it would be a Cosplay nightmare, but sure enough a good number of hard core cosplayers are out there too.

If I do stay behind in Cali, I might as well throw a few random partys at my place that weekend.
That and I need to live vicariously thru my roommates who are going and anyone else probably meeting up there.

Anyone besides my roommates going?

There's an 80% chance that I'll be going since I'll be touring up there the day before the con anyways. I NEED to see Girugamesh play >w<

Washington's too far for me. :P
Course if I'm not going out of state anyways and I somehow procure a ride and room, then, maybe.

nothing like hitch hiking up to oregon, and then somehow finding the luck to randomly crash in a room.

Then again I'm almost certain people have done crazier or weirder for Fanime. I wouldnt doubt it for a momment :P

I'll be heading to SakuraCon next month. Drop me a line when you're there! I'll be cosplaying as Link (in my profile pic), Master Form Sora from Kingdom Hearts II, and some version of Naruto Uzumaki (Time Jump, Sage, or 6th Hokage.)

Its kind of depressing that I moved away from Seattle before I ever got the chance to go to Sakuracon.

Sadly, I wont be able to go, because it's the very end of my spring break and I dont want to do the whole sleep deprivation after a break again. XD I know that one of my friends in WA is going as Gokudera, and another will likely be going as a dark nurse or something. A third's going but she hasn't decided on her costume. XD;

If you guys do go, though, definitely bring a jumbo sized umbrella. I've never walked around the convention center to see if there's covered outdoor areas, but west Washington is /always/ cloudy. For an example, I went back for a week in the summer, when there was actually sunlight; it sprinkled or rained 7/7 days I was there, at some point. Most locals don't even use hoods, but I suggest it for any spiky wigs.

My group and I will be going.  ;D It's the first time for them, but the second time for me.

It would be cool to see Girugamesh (commercial notwithstanding (http://www.nagatocity.net/blog/2009/03/girugamesh/)) but I'm totally not gonna be able to go. Someone let me know how it is.
