ACEN 2015

Postby chronomeister on Wed Nov 19, 2014 7:30 pm

This time I'll get the year right. And much copy paste.

From the website: "Anime Central (ACen) is Chicago’s and the Midwest’s largest anime, manga and Japanese popular culture convention. The convention is currently held in Rosemont, IL, less than 30 minutes from downtown Chicago." Dat slick copy paste. ACEN this year is May 15-17th. And because it's so important and I'm sure it's on all your minds at this time of year, finals week for Spring semester is May 11-15. So rejoice, it's after finals this year. Important registration dates: until January 1st is $48, April 1st is $53, $60 after that and will be at con pick-up.

I have taken the liberty to reserve a hotel room somewhat in the vicinity of the convention. Currently it is the Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel. Map here. I say currently, cause last year I was less on the ball and still managed to get a closer room so I might check back later to see if people bailed at some of the even closer properties. But it's still decently close. I'll be running the same kind of offer I did last year. I'll pay for a day, everyone else splits the second. I've rounded the room cost to $500 (stupid taxes) for two days. So I'll pay the first $250 day. If one person stays with me, they'll pay $250. If two people stay, it's $125 each. etc. Post here if interested.

If officers/someone in Platteville would like to use this space for rides feel free to. I plan to leave from glorious Sterling, IL and only have space for one if possible if that.

Also Megaton, you're a cool guy and all and don't take this too personally, but no room for you. I thought my dad prepared me but I was wrong.

It's never too early to get hyped for ACEN.

I am very interested, but it all depends on what happens with my work situation.

Ah fuck. Let me guess, Megaton snored too much? I guess I'm out ;_;

So I got in when no one else opted in...doesn't feel like a win. Seriously, Chrono is gonna have to suffer because no one else wanted to go.

That's OK, you're still paying for part of the room.

Shall I actually expect to pay half this time? ;P That still seriously weirded me out last year.

Sorry for not meeting up with you guys. I was having a 'phone situation' the entire convention. My charger simply would not charge my phone and the battery was nearly dead. I made due for a bit by leaving my phone off most of the time, then plugging it in every so often to check and send messages. Then, I lost the charger. ;_; Therefore, I was not able to reliably get in touch with you guys, or my two other groups of friends at the con.

I'll try to get my cosplay pics online. I'll put a link in this thread.

I wanted to go just no money, spending too much on new toys.
