I'll be there, as usual.

Who else is going?

Yeah - after last year's debacle, I'm sure they'll throw lots of money at it to get it sorted out.

They're gonna outgrow the Anaheim Convention Center at some point.

I'm buying my rooms at the Hilton across the walkway, so I don't have to walk three blocks back to the hotel like last time. That was no fun.

Nuh uh!

I'm in talks with my pal to stay for Saturday night as well, to have a longer love fest with my fellow WoW players.

If I can get tickets I'll be coming.

For those of you who have been to previous ones, is there 'stuff' to do all night, or does it pretty much close down?

How's the costuming?  How does it compare with, say an anime convention, since that is a point of reference I know?

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

The vast majority of people are not in costume. The people that ARE in costume, were pretty much all out WTF in terms of effort level though. I can't give you an anime convention comparison as I've never been to one.

Koyasha: my recollection is the hall closed at midnight? I think?

Yeah - I've been every year. The people who do end up cosplaying there have seriously insane costumes. Not that I keep track of cosplay culture or anything, but some of these guys (and girls) really go all out.

One of my favorite costumes from last year was this girl - http://www.thenonentity.com/blizzcon3.jpg - she had this costume of the Raven Lord, Anzu. The picture really doesn't do it justice, she had the whole bird animation thing down, as weird as that sounds.

There was also that creepy-ass undead girl who had the walk down perfectly. She was MY favorite.

Also, I think the hall closed at 10, not midnight, but still, it was pretty late.

Yeah - http://www.thenonentity.com/blizzcon1.jpg - the one on the right. I managed to get a picture with her and her draenei friend. She was terrifying. I'm sure she's clinically insane, but she's awesome.

It was her sister if I remember what I read elsewhere correctly.  They were both good costumes.

Although I was thinking about it, I'm going to pass this year.  If I do any costume, I'd like to finish up my renfest one based on a Disciple of Khaine and the trip will be a lot cheaper.

Those are stunningly good but I can't help but feel someone is going to get accidentally injured or feel the impact is lessened since he didn't really MAKE the costume...

This.

Plus I don't see any con letting those items in unless they're going on a display isolated from real people.  Had he commissioned them being made from plastics sure.  Otherwise I think it's even more nerdy than the people who bought Frostmourne.

Frostmourne shouldn't be something that arrives in the mail. You seek it out or create it, like in the event of a zombie apocalypse! That's what I would do anyways.

I got my tickets ordered yesterday also.  Glad their system didn't screw up completely this year.

Ironic considering my interest in WoW is dwindling, and I was never much for Starcraft, but eh.  Maybe I'll be interested in WoW again by the time it comes around, but at least whatever they have about Diablo 3 should be interesting.

If it's the same as last time, they'll go on sale about 2 minutes before time (as synchronized to time.windows.com) cause the clock was 9:58 when I hit refresh and the page came up.

Unfortunately I expect the page-camping to be stronger on the 30th, so good luck.

NO WAY

I have my hotel room for Saturday night as well - last time I didn't have Saturday night paid for, just Thursday and Friday.

I am there for the whole kit and kaboodle!
