WOW ! O.O

Hey guys !!!!

OMG, personally I think Otakuthon was a HUGE success !!! It was so crowded and so much fun !! People were so nice all the time, everything was so neat !! ( I mean, for a very FIRST convention, it ROCKED !! It can just get better in the next years !! ) So many cosplayer, even on Sunday !! ^____________^ They got like more than 2K of people O.O That's like waaaay more than what they were expected ( specially on a rainy saturday like that ! )

So what do you think about the whole thing ? I was at my artist table all the time so I haven't been able to leave my table that much and it was almost always crowded, the sales went so wonderfully well, so much more than what I could ever expect, I'm so happy the artists got such a great visibility and it looks like it went really well for all of them !!! ^______^ I can't beleive all the amazing talent I saw there, wonderful ! )

I'd like to know what you thought about the whole convention ! Good and bad things ! ^.^ And please post pics if you have some, I'll post a bunch of them real soon along with some video ! ^__^ I'd say the only bad thing that happened on my side was that my headset/microphone during the J-pop show decided to be an ass and was making those funny noises XDDDDDDDD But oh well, we did it anyway lol ! ;-p And it was so much fun XD

Thanks all for coming, I'm positively sure there will be an Otakuthon 2007, it has to !!! And I'll sooo be there again for sure ! ^_^ It was a blast !! It's hard to beleive that Montreal got it's very own anime convention !!

Hope you enjoyed your week-end and post some reviews please ! ^___^
XOXOXOX

But I saw two girls who went to school with me who were selling their artwork, I was surprised!

Many photos were posted in my journal and in montreal_loli. ^^

My table was right in front of the "pre-registered people place", next to the artists tables ^.^ I saw TONS of gorgeous lolis though, lots from the loli LJ community, they were all so beautiful and so nice !!!!! ^_______________^ I took a bunch of photos, I'll post them all this week ! ^____^ Too bad we missed each other XD Oh well, there's Fantasia fest coming up or any loli meeting this summer anyway ;-)

I don't know. I am the complete opposite. I thought Otakuthon was very very disorganized. Even the organizers knew that. I saw some of the people in charge in such a frustrated state... =( Otakuthon could've been better in my opinion.
Sorry! I had forgotten to log in.
I only made a short visit, much shorter than I had planned because of outside factors. I found it good for a first year, a bit disorganized sure but I hope they do it again next year!
The main thing that disappointed me was the karaoke... there was like 30 songs to choose from ?_?
Also, I would have a liked a great dealer's room, i.e. with stuff that you can't find for cheaper in Chinatown. I don't know if they had some restrictions on commercial activities or anything, but I thought there would be more on that aspect.
Lastly, I think the program was well thought out, there was a lot of things for everyone (with some dead moments) and I wish I could have gone to some of the showings.
In fact, they were not disorganized, theyt were just really lacking of staff and volunters ^^;; and also badlucked
