Mine was either: "Holy crap this registration line is long", or, "Crap, I should've cosplayed."

For me it would have had to be: "Oh @#$%! I wish I had pre-registered". D;

Defiantly not making that mistake this year. The regular registering line just takes way to long in my case. :<

Mine was "Oh man, I really wish I had cosplayed today!" followed by "My costume tomorrow is going to suck compared with these peoples'!" followed by "Where do I go to get to the Artist's Alley?"

Mine was probably, "Thank God I preregistered." Followed shortly by something along the lines of, "OMG! It's Miroku!!!" *total fangirl moment*

Last year was my first con, so as we got close to the hotel, we started seeing a lot off oddly dressed people, and I said "I think we're in the right place!"

"Thank god I pre-reged. And picked up the badge yesterday. D**** I'm cool. .....Robin shouldn't take so long registering"

Followed by something about how glad I was mom was letting me skip school.

"It's great to be back here..." and then "Wow, I am definitely going to pick up my badge Thursday night next year... this line's crazy."

But mostly, I was just really, really happy to have arrived.

"I think we went in the wrong way" and "where is registration again" were the thoughts in my mind

My friends and I didn't remember that registration was in the Sheraton and weren't sure where to go (it was our first con and we were to excited to think when we got there).
Luckily some nice people pointed us in the right direction...

CRAP. We are pre-registering next year.

This line is long.

Oh. An Ed cosplayer. And another. And another. Oh my God, how many of you are there?!

While passing out is NEVER fun (and I certainly do not wish illness on anyone...)
That would totally have been TEH LULZ.

Can you imagine the hordes of Ed cosplayers all running up to you screaming "Mom! MOM! GET UP MOM!!" XD

I think I was just so excited. The minute I saw my first copslayer I was squealing. My sister (who I'd just recently converted to anime/manga) hardly recognized anybody, so I felt so proud being able to identify a lot of the characters.

"the map says the volunteer center is here.... but um the door is locked... pretend to be an airplane anyone?"

turns out they were all sitting in circles/forming assembly lines in the registration room to fill bags. great fun :D

This was my first con where I cosplayed. I take the train to AB, so my first thought was "What the heck am I doing cosplaying?" The second was, "are all the kids from my town going to be alright? It is their first convention." And the next one was "Will anyone recognize my character?"

Someone said "Oh my gosh! It's Tohru! Hi Tohru."

My final was "This year is going to be awesome."

And it was!
