I figured this would be more appropriate here, as opposed to the "Seeking Cosplayers" thread.

This will be my first year going to Otakon, and I haven't been in the area for the last five years... so I don't have anyone to really *go* with. I've occasionally run across people who have never gone to a convention who say that the thing holding them back is that they don't have anyone to go to a convention with.

So I figured perhaps this could be a thread dedicated to finding other people to hang out with for cons, and maybe make friends with common interests to do geeky stuff with? You can put your name and basic information and your interests, and find other people to meet up with for Otakon...

So I suppose I'll go first:

Name: Cassie
Age: 18 (Freshman in college)
Interests/cosplays: I've cosplayed from Death Note, Yu Yu Hakusho, Kuroshitsuji, Soul Eater, and Harry Potter. My favorite anime is currently Code Geass, my favorite comic is V for Vendetta... I enjoyed the book Freakonomics and the movie In Bruges, and I write fiction and doodle clothing designs in my spare time.
Looking for: People to have geeky conversations with/chill with at Otakon. (It would be fun to do a group cosplay, too, but I've had plenty of fun in groups with seven different people from seven different shows and still had tons of fun.)

[b]Name:[/b] Kris

[b]Age:[/b] 24(25 on May 8th)

[b]Interests/cosplays:[/b] You can just go look at my profile but... I've cosplayed from Naruto, Bleach, Hetalia, Code Geass, Avatar, and Final Fantasy XIII, and will be doing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Final Fantasy VI this year along with those other ones.
I love Bleach, Ouran High School Host Club, Saiunkoku Monogatari, Code Geass, FMA, Death Note, and Naruto(kinda..haven't looked at it in months though). I also love Assassin's Creed and Final Fantasy.
I used to have hobbies...but with grad school I don't have much time for anything but cosplaying-and that only in the summer. But I enjoy singing, playing cello, reading, astronomy, and of course like any 20-something partying or going out with friends. I just don't seem to have much time for this stuff at the moment.

[b]About Me:[/b] When you 1st meet me you should know I'm shy. Some people take that as rudeness or disinterest. Seriously though I just don't know what to say. Don't take it personally, I open up pretty fast- and in the meantime my sister(who's 16) will talk a mile a minute to you so you won't be bored or pissed off.
I'm a grad student at UMDNJ and will probably be attending law school in the fall.

[b]Looking for:[/b] Obviously new friends. I don't have enough that are interested in cosplay or convention related things.
It would be even better to find someone doing a FFXIII, AC:Brotherhood, or FFVI cosplay so we could all(my two siblings, the new person, and I, and most likely a few people I know) have a theme thing going on.
Finding someone closer to my age would be cool too. I have nothing against teenagers as long as they aren't fangirly glomping weirdoes, but I'd like to not feel so old, ya know? Finding people in my age bracket, who might be more mature too, would be freakin amazing.
I'm up for being friends with anyone though.

[b]Contact Info and Stuff:[/b] Again, you could just get this off my profile, but whatever.

#3 Kiro on 9 years ago

[b]Name:[/b] Brian
[b]Age:[/b] 21
[b]Interests/Cosplays:[/b] Can't say too much about cosplay (list isn't very long). Elfen Lied is my favorite anime, followed by Madlax and Hellsing Ultimate. I enjoy talking about cars, whether it be maintenance or racing. I used to be into art (realistic 2D and 3D modeling) and will probably get back into it before Otakon; just haven't had time to do much with college/work and all.
[b]Looking For:[/b] Anyone that has transportation and is willing to hang out after the con ends. So, local New Jerseyans preferred, I guess, especially if you're into cars/bikes and motorsports even a little. Otherwise, any fan of Initial D, Black Lagoon, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, Index/Railgun, or any series aforementioned. It'll also be fun meeting fellow hideyosexuals. :D

tl;dr Fans of anime, cars, art, etc. All are welcome.

#4 ShinigamiKaitou on 9 years ago

Name: Katie
Age: 25
Interests/cosplays: Have several cosplays from over the years. My favs have been my Digimon ones, and Xelloss from Slayers, though I've cosplayed from Tokyo Underground, Ranma 1/2, Naruto and several other fandoms. Huge fan of anything nerdy. Bit of a bookworm alongside the anime fandom, I adore anything Mercedes Lackey,Robert Jordan or Anne Bishop <3 Currently obsessed with Inazuma Eleven.

Looking for: People to dork around with and talk to about random stuff. Always fun to have someone you met razz you at Karaoke XD or to spaz at when you see someone cosplaying from a show "you haven't seen in foreeeeever *flail*"

I tend to babble alot, if I get too annoying being hit with a paper fan seems to work :3

I'm literally one of the nicest people out there. The basics: I like anime, gaming, cosplaying, reading(Defaintly reading!!),drawing,listening to music, etc. Love to parapara dance when I get the time. I like to try new things @ least once in my lifetime. I seriously have a open mind to anything. I dont judge anybody untill i fully know the person. Ummmm, I think thats it.

Hearing Otakon is a great con to go to we really want to make a tradional to go yearly!

#13 NikkiKora on 9 years ago

Name: Nikki
Age: 17 (Senior in high school)
I haven't cosplayed much... Only done Louise (Zero no Tsukaima) and Sekai (School Days), but my new cosplay is Mari Illustrious Makinami from Rebuild of Evangelion.
Evangelion's my favorite show, and I like weird stuff like that. (Denpateki na Kanojo, FLCL, Chaos;Head, Higurashi, Boogiepop Phantom, Mirai Nikki...) I also like giant robots (Gurren Lagann, Outlaw Star...) and harems (Kanokon, Love Hina, Zero no Tsukaima). I'm open to just about anything, really. :'D
Looking for: People to talk to, I guess! Like I said, I watch just about anything, so as long as you're not super-opinionated, we're sure to find something to talk about! :D
(Also a Shinji Ikari to hold and love. ;_; But that's whatever.)

#14 Eiashian on 9 years ago

Name: Generally just go by E xD
Age: 23
Train Heartnet - Black Cat
Rosette Christopher - Chrno Crusade (in casino dress)
Amu Hinamori - Shugo Chara (school uniform)
Claude - Vampirates
Shuichi - Gravitation EX
Ran - Sukisho
(Longer list than I thought xD)

Currently Hourou Musuko is my favorite manga. I've fallen in love with it =w=. My favorite anime is probably Gurren Laggan. I wish I was a guy so I could cosplay Kamina, but I'll have to settle for cosplaying Yoko instead xD. I really watch just about anything anime related that's handed to me however. I'm also really into music and video games, and anything artsy. I write, draw, act, sing and just about everything in between >.>. I'm also a free spirit who acts more like a guy than a girl xD. I'm usually hyper, and very accepting however I am very honest. I speak my mind, and love good conversation.

Looking for:
New friends who're very open minded, and just love geeky stuff =3. I've never really had permanent friends at cons for whatever reason, but I'd really like to. It'd be cool just to have some people to meet up with at con and have a good weekend with though. May have a Soul Eater group if things work out. I'll be there with my boyfriend, two of my closest friends, and a newer friend I made who's kinda turned into a con buddy. If anybody's interested, feel free to im mah!

#15 xSeishiN on 8 years ago

Name: Andy

Age: 25

Sex: M

Interests: I dont really cosplay, but I love the people that do. I am a gamer, and a dork thats always ripping my computer apart to put something new in it. I play WoW, FPS games, and will basically try anything thats not a Facebook game. I like alot of different animes, Hellsing being my favorite. Im not much of a partier and/or drinker, but I dont mind going out sometimes, and the rave is the biggest reason I want to go this year. I love to meet people because everyone has their own story, and I would like to hear them all :)

I am going alone, so I would like to find some people to hang out with while I am down there. I do not have a hotel room yet, so if you got some space, I am in the market for that too ^_^

Looking for: Basically anyone with similiar interests, totally different interests, or a mix of the two. I like most people and can pretty much get along with anyone...What I would really like to find is some people to go to the rave with, as well as just wander the con seeing all the sights and doing the "picture taking tourist" sort of thing...and as asked in a few posts above mine, I am not a creeper or anything of the sort ^_^

Hit me at [email][email protected][/email], or search that email on Facebook and shoot me a message there if you wanna talk, I can assure you a quick answer :)
