Welcome to Otakon!

This group is open to any deviant who lives in or around the Baltimore/DC metro area who is interested in anime! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE ATTENDING OTAKON TO JOIN :)Along with OTAKON, members will be informed about other conventions, clubs, and anime related events around the Baltimore/DC Metro area!

Please be aware that this is a COMMUNITY GROUP so it is all about your involvement! Feel free to suggest events, come up with Scavenger Hunt ideas, share cosplay ideas, share exciting stories around Otakon/other conventions... anything you can think of! Don't be shy and just send us a message!



:bulletblue: Nothing inappropriate is allowed. That means no pictures of the Sesshomaru you hooked up with last year. (Sorry guys)
:bulletblue: No artwork unless it is Otakon related- and if it is, please ask to submit it to our featured folder!
:bulletblue: Artist's who will be in the Artist's Alleyway are the only ones allowed to post artwork unrelated to Otakon to advertise. If you are one of these artists in the Artist Alley please let us know so we can allow you to advertise. :)

Here's an opportunity to maybe make some new connections. I've noticed a lot of people are announcing their lineups for Otakon 2016 on other social media sites, so I figured I'd give everyone the chance to share their line-ups on here too!

If you happen to be looking for a cosplay partner or another person to join your cosplay group, you can leave that in a comment as well! I may do a separate post later on if there seems to be many people looking for other cosplayers.

Here's mine and my partner's lineup:

Share your lineups in a comment below! (or you can even add them to the Otakon 2016 folder). =D
With Otakon 2016 approaching quickly, it was time to do some spring (summer?) cleaning. Most of our co-founders and contributors were inactive accounts, so they've been demoted back to Members...which means there is a need for new active contributors! Please shoot the club a note if you're interested.

Turns out our founder was also either banned or deactivated recently, so I've emailed to see if dA can grant me the position (fortunately, we had previously decided to give co-founders almost complete power in the group - so there's not much I can't do to begin with - but you never know when something will pop up that we need Founder power to fix).

I'm going to open up an Otakon 2016 folder so that you all can start submitting lineups!

And lastly: thoughts on the move to DC? Are you going to live it up in Baltimore one last time, or are there more pros to the new location?
