    Jan 27, 2012, 3:28 PM - DragonCon 2012 - Let's get the ball rolling! #1

    I know this is CRAZY early..... but I'm asian and I like to plan well in advance... :P That and I'm curious as to who's going.

    Now from my understanding, a ton of 405th members usually go to DragonCon. I would love to meet more of you guys in person. I already met a lot of other 405th's at PAX, and PAX/Halofest was amazing!! I had a great time. It would be cool to meet and suit up with even MORE than a dozen 405th.

    If anyone is also interested, I would be willing to organize a group hotel/we all stay in one area type dealio, like what Longshot did for PAX - that way there will be much shenanigans happening in once place! :P
    As well as meetup/hang outs, photoshoot times, etc.

    So if you're going and interested in hotels, meet ups/hang outs, photoshoots, etc, post that too! As well as any suggestions and such you might have.

    Let's try and make this this biggest 405th gathering/event ever!

    --------------------------
    So, who's going?
    (*maybe - depends on monies, time off, etc)
    -*Hyokenseisou
    -*ROK Gmoney
    -*L3X BLU3RIV3R
    -*Blackula
    -*Hyper
    -DistortedInc
    -TJX64
    -*penutbuttrbandt-MikyVengeance
    -Goosebot
    -WSYDGladKumar

    ---------------------------
    Hotel:
    -*Hyokenseisou
    -*ROK Gmoney
    -*TJX64

    Getting armor across the boarder isn't as hard as you think. Just be prepared to pay a lot for over-sized luggage if you're flying.

    They probably won't let you do that. They might let you wear the helmet on the plane for a moment, but not a full suit - security reasons.

    This most likely would lead to a full frontal beat down about the head and neck area from the TSA and/or accompanied by full body cavity check. I'd rather pay the shipping...lol

    Hey guys,
    I am planning on being there, if my suit is ready or not.

    I know the main hotels have been booked solid since last 'con finished so i would imagine rooms in one of the nearby "overflow hotels" could be had.

    (Ha! first post and i didn't even realize it, since i've been lurking here for the last 4 months)

    Was just wondering if there was a D*C 2012 thread yet. I'll be there in Caboose (Hotel booked and badge bought months ago), ready to stand facing the wrong direction for all group pictures again.

    If I wanted to go, I'd have to fly since I live in Canada lol I'd have to see how much it would cost for all of that.

    You know I'll be there, its not even a question. My attendance to Dragoncon is mandatory. I'll be per-registering for it in a week or so. I'm not planning on making another halo suit at least not out of fiberglass/bondo. (Not the most comfortable thing!) Might try a Halo 4 helmet though! I'll most likely bring my red and white Mark 6 again. Hardcore convention hours tested I can wear it all day without worrying about things breaking at this point Not sure if I'm doing hotels. Me and my brother usually never do, we live in atlanta lol so we just drive there in the morning spend all day/night and then drive home usually around 3am xD Usually means im trapped in costume for long hours hence the hardcore hours my suit has in just 2 years.

    Well me and several of my friends are going to be there since I have a house in Atlanta. But we also got a couple rooms in the Sheridan to change, recover from hangovers, etc.

    I'd like to see some 405th members there, but if it's anything like last year there will have to be some serious logistics. I was there three days before I ran into a Spartan in the crowd.

    I don't think I am going to do anything Halo related however. I'm going to let me friend use the ODST if he wants. We have a big group doing Mass Effect so I'm preparing for that. I'll also be showing up as Gordon Freeman at some point to make my girlfriend happy.

    Its in Atlanta, GA and the membership at the moment costs $90 dollars. I just ordered mines the other day. Its best to get it ASAP because it gets more expensive as the time to the con gets closer. After 5/15/12 it will go up to $105 dollars, then past 7/13/12 it will go up to $120. Is it just me or is it getting more expensive every year...
