I had my suspicions about the "over-18" panel; they seem to have been more than borne out. Total vag◯◯◯ count, eh?

The Eva panel was awesome; I don't think I've laughed so hard in many months. I got to meet Reichu, Aaron and Drinian, who are all cool people, and so I'd say putting up with all the less-nice things about summer Baltimore was worth it. The rest of the convention was pretty good, except that half the panels I wanted to go to were canceled at the last minute and one of the few I did make it to was dominated by shrill yaoi fangirls.

Oh, and there were too fucking many Naruto cosplayers. They must have outnumbered all other cosplayers by at least two and a half to one. I did see people cosplaying as Indiana Jones + father, Boba Fett, an Imperial Stormtrooper, Major Kusanagi, Spike Spiegel, several video game characters and, of all people, Nabeshin, which made it tolerable.

There was very little Eva stuff, which I thought was kind of weird given the imminent release of Rebuild. I did see one Rei and one Asuka cosplayer, but that's about all. On the other hand, I did get to watch Appleseed in 35mm (awesome explosions), Black Lagoon episodes 1-4 (Geneon's official subtitles seem to be okay, and there was lots of applause and cheering whenever Revy blew something up), Kannazuki no Miko 1-4 (doesn't do the manga justice, has too much filler and fanservice) and a couple of interesting snippets at the Yuricon panel, which started half an hour before the listed time.

The bad news is that my mother had the camera the whole time, and pretty much none of her photos are usable. Drinian and Reichu should both have some, though.

Man, I lol'd hard at those comics. Somehow they caught me off guard, even though they shouldn't have.

The comics were pretty funny, yes. I LMFAOed at the one of Aaron "acting like a dick". :P

Good to know you enjoyed yourself, Bob. ^_^

Did you get at least one pic of yourself as "Smith"??

So is Rachel as "eccentric" as she seems? (If I ever meet her, I think I'd like her even more because of that! ^^; )

Can someone please explain the comic? SAUCE, etc.

I'm not in the mood to do a writeup for Otakon at the moment -- but, no, there was nobody recording the panel. It now exists only in people's memories. I have the Powerpoint of my "Blink and Miss It" presentation, but it's just an assemblage of pictures and videos without me talking and pointing.

From what I gather, its saying the Panel was out of control just because of the topic being discussed?

And because of your confusion, does that mean you didn't touch that subject (Vazgin count) after all?

It's, uh, hard to explain...

And yes, I went through NINE (count 'em: NINE) instances of Subliminal Female Genitalia in NGE (eight of which were in EoE, of course). Amused by Heero's sketch -- he got my getup and everything, though, strangely, he left my glasses out...

Someone took a photo when I got to the slide of Misato being blown in half, for some reason.

So you wore a suit, eh? Coolness.

Wait...where do we get the non-EoE female vagina? Was that Yui's eye (Naked Eva face) in episode 02? (Speaking of which, its beyond me why Yui would want to scare the Bejeezus out of Shinji like that.)

Misato being blown in half pic: Perhaps because of the "error"? "Look! She's blown in half in 25', but then in 26' her clothes and Tanged body are in one piece!"

Yep. Cobalt blue shirt, red tie, black pants, ponytail... It was a little better when I had the bangs, and I couldn't find my green hair tie this year, and I don't grow facial hair, but...

Yep. (@Your question: For lulz.)

I had those slides back-to-back, although it was to demonstrate continuity, rather than a lack thereof.

I might record myself talking and try timing the Powerpoint to go along with clips of my voice, so people who weren't there can see what I did. You know... for the lulz.

Sudden question....Err...wait what does Kaworu have to d---Oh yeah. (S)he does some off-screen Vagina-palms magic in EoE, amirite?

BobBQ, Reichu, me, Eva Monkey. As always, a good time was had by all. I thought the panel was really good.
