    I guess I'll dive right into the group even though we're still small! Anyone have plans for PAX South next year? If not what other cons are you planning on going to?

    I really wanted to go last year, but didn't get the chance to make it. I think I'll make it a point to go this year! After RTX, I'm finding myself wanting to go to more and more conventions :) I live in Austin, so the drive to SA isn't that bad.

    A friend of mine got a room for SanJapan so I will probably be going to that in the fall. I also have a RWBY group going to Anime Matsuri. For which, we will have fully transforming props.

    I haven't even thought about Pax South! I guess it just all depends on where I end up at the end of the summer. Hopefully I'll have a full time well paying job by then and if so, I will be definitely going.

    How cosplay-friendly is PAX?

    It's super cosplay friendly.

    Oh good. I was hoping it wasn't one of those "Our con has been taken over rah rah rah" sorts of things! I've heard of that attitude before and it makes me kinda sad.

    I heard somewhere (although this could be entirely untrue, so don't quote me on this) that there was some comic book convention (maybe SDCC? I'm probably wrong) that had this massive influx of people cosplaying characters from movies and games and such and that the people who were the convention "purists" were suuuper mad about it. Actually, I'm pretty sure it was on one of the early episodes of the RT Podcast back when it was called The Drunk Tank.

    Sorry for the absence. I've been out catching pokemon WHOOPS.

    As far as PAX goes I know people cosplay there but I hear it can be super crowded. Though that was mostly about PAX East so South may be a little smaller? However big build cosplays might be harder to get around. Either way I hope it's cosplay friendly!

    I'm definately going to PAX South this year. Before that I will also be at Realmscon in Corpus Christi.

    I wish I could go, but I just started a new job and don't have any vacation time yet.

    I heard Burne say he has never been to PAXSouth, despite it being around the corner.

    If PaxSouth is not good enough for Burnie, why should I bother.

    You guys have fun, I will sit it out like Burnie does

    I
     think since South is still relatively new and small they're still working on building it up to be as (hopefully) big as their other locations. Hopefully RT has bigger presence this year then they did last year (: 

    In reply to Matt317

    I've never heard of Realmscon o: Sounds fun though! What cosplays do you plan on taking to South?

    Oh yeah. It's a small anime/comic book convention that's steadily been growing over the years.


    I'm hoping to be Link from LoZ: Breath of the Wild. :)

    The convention center there in San Antonio is pretty big so it never seems that crowded.  It's cosplay-friendly for sure.

    Unfortunately, as attendence grows every year at PAX South, the fewer big names show up.  It is just too far of another gaming convention trip for most- as there's usually a few closer, more important conventions for media, devs, and publishers to attend.  PAX South is the indie video game and tabletop version of all the PAXes.  This year, they're going to have a somewhat large section where you can try out some VR games, and you'll be able to put your hands on the Nintendo Switch.  Other than that, there probably won't be any big name panels...Last year's was fairly disappointing.

    Will there be nothing from RoosterTeeth this year? I don't see anything listed on the schedule. Disappointed if that's the case. :(

    I'm wondering the same thing. Last year, even with RTX Sydney, they still had a presence there. Maybe there will be some last minute announcements. Either that, or maybe it will just be individual RT members going on vacation.

    Last minute announcements dont help folk that decided months ago

    not to get time off because RT wont be there.


    I would say we could check the Event Calender tab ( http://roosterteeth.com/event ) on RT main page to see what folks set up for paxs, but they made that a stealth page a while back and nobody uses it now

    .... and it doesnt work...  I dont see any events I scheduled last summer for this spring,

    but thats kinda expected these days
