So, I decided a few days away from the convention that I am going to Otakon. It's the last year of OtaRockman and one of my favorite artists has Coelacanth and Shovel Knight prints for sale this year. Somehow, that warrants spending the money to go. XD Yep, great logic there!
Unless prices go down or there is some guest that I am heads over heels for, this will be my last year attending. Besides seeing fellow fans and buying art, I have no real way of justifying the high costs. For a convention so close to home, it should be cheaper and easier to attend than any other convention. But, it isn't. The registration, parking, hotels, lines, etc aren't worth it anymore. I am planning to attend Anime Boston next year instead. With good planning, I'll spend about the same, but with the benefit of flying to another state. I love flying and travelling so much!
My cosplay this year will be the Troupple Alcolyte. I figured the more people I tell, the more motivation I'll have pulling it off in a few days. See ya at the con.
