    Call the hotels you want to check in and ask them yourself, I called the hotel with a 1-800 number thingy to get in touch with all the hotels of the same kind world wide. You can usually find easier a room this way, I did anyway.

    I hope your going to Otakon too?????

    I just noticed that someone neat is going to Otakon, someone who did a whole bunch of tunes for Squaresoft, may not be Nobuo, but still someone neat :P

    I wish i was, but no unfortunately I can't. Maybe next year, but definitely not this one. Even after AX I'll probably be down $500-700.

    well... it should depend on when the staff is up... usually the hotels are open all day/night, but i guss they're regulating the check in becuz of the convention...

    you might have more luck finding a different hotel a little farther away from the center, maybe a different part of Long Beach? or maybe Anihiem?

    when Soshi and i went last year, we were able to get a drive there since we're in LA... but it's not really an everyday trip!!

    ^o^ good luck!!!

    Do you know if the long beach convention center has parking?? I mean I could walk six miles from the hotel to the center, but I rather not considering the SoCal heat...

    Re: Conventions!!

    The main site of the beach convention has the info your looking for:

    Directions to the Convention & Entertainment Center

    If your too lazy to follow a link:

    Hours of Operation
    The standard open hours of the Convention Center parking lots and garages are: Monday-Friday 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Saturday-Sunday 7:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. During Convention Center events the lots are open two (2) hours prior to opening of doors and one-half hour after the event. The main lot remains closed unless there are events, then the same hours are in effect.
    Rates
    Autos: $8.00; Buses: $24.00.

    For More Information
    See "Parking Garages" in the Guidelines section,
    or email the Parking Manager.
    Entrances
    The Long Beach Convention Center has three parking garages: the Terrace Theater Parking Garage, the Arena Parking Garage and the Promenade Parking Garage which is open for conventions, trade shows and special events. It has 350 parking spaces. The Terrace Theater Parking Garage is generally open for theater events and has 800 parking spaces. The Arena Parking Garage is open for conventions, trade shows and arena events and has 1,460 parking spaces. The Main parking Lot and Elephant Lot are located off of Shoreline Drive (1,500 spaces).
    Additional Parking Lots
    TBA



    It'll cost me about 600-700$ so I guess it costs similarly to go to my event. Though I have a passeport and a birth certificate included in the costs. That and a bus ticket that will make me have a 12-13 hour bus ride....

    I finally found what I'll dress up in, Kyon!!!!!!!!!!


    I'll look probably somewhat like this person:

    Cosplay.com -

    But I'll try to look perfectly like this person:

    Anime-Source.Com - Anime Spotlight: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

    (look for Kyon, the seemingly depressed guy)

    If anyone is planning to go for the next NY ComicCon let me know! I know it's still early but I kind of want to gather a bunch of people so we can form a cosplay group (f*ck the weather, we'll just bring trench coats for good measure!).

    I'm either going to the New York Anime Festival or the New York Comic Con. Yeah I guess February is kind of early but people who don't live there have to plan months in advance I guess. I always wanted to cosplay as Static Shock or Bob Makihara from Tenjou Tenge(Since they're the only characters who look like me) but I was worrying about feeling dumb.
