Yeah, I think next time we should make sure to ask for volunteers who think they really know their stuff with video game music, since they're supposed to represent the whole team. Or we can figure out some other way to do it...
Haha, I was hella tempted to participate initially but I was like meh, surely this crowd is competent enough.

For those who didn't know who I was. I was the guy with the white hair and red outfit chillin with you guys in front of the room before the panel started. Ragna the Bloodedge cosplay ftw. :D

I don't blame the contestants at all. They were good sports!

I had prepared a list of songs for the name that tune, and practiced them in advance. I chose my songs based on the name that tune I did at PAX East, where guessing was open to the entire audience (of 200? 500? I don't remember). At PAX East, even the ones I thought would be more challenging were guessed very quickly. So this time I decided to pick more obscure songs to make it more challenging for the Otakon crowd, which was even bigger than the PAX East crowd if I'm not mistaken.

Had I known we were going to only select 2 contestants from the audience, I would have picked much more well-known songs. ^_^;

Hey guys, this is the Chozo cosplayer from the panel.

Thanks for the CD and all. DCK2 is one of my gf's favorite childhood games and she just told me that the panel was her favorite part of the con. Totally felt lame about only identifying two songs, but I bet the other guy must have felt worse. (I actually didn't see my opponent until just a moment ago when I checked out the pics that were posted.) I was kind of peeved that SoR2 and StH2 came up when I grew up with the prequels. My friend sitting in the second row with me was actually way better with game music (I'm mostly just a Ninty fan), but he was the first one to nominate me in the crowd.

If anyone else has any pics/vids of the panel, that would totally rock.

Dude, you had probably the most creative cosplay I saw the entire weekend. I had gotten your picture earlier in the day, and I laughed my ass off when I saw you got picked.

The panel was a blast. The physical DKC2 CD is awesome, and I love my new hoodie. Although it was my third year of going to Otakon and the OCR panel, it was the first that I really hung out and talked to anybody when it was over. I'm really glad you did, you guys are a real nice bunch of people. Sorry I couldn't stick around for the BBQ!

FIVE JAKE

Here's a copy of the pix I got from my buddy for Otakon.

Also, I believe at least one, possibly two, got footage of the panel. I will check my laptop.

Edit: Yup, it all turned out awesome. I will be working with Brushfire to get the best of the best footage out relatively soon.

It might've been tough to hear because you were behind the musicians as opposed to the rest of the audience - I think we underestimated how tough it was to recognize the melody due to the different instrumentation as well. Most of the songs weren't immediately obvious I felt.

It was great seeing your costume though, that must've been a pain to get on but damn if that wasn't the most amusing costume I've seen.

I linked my album earlier if you want to see pics of the panel - others got them too, so lots of stuff on Facebook if you haven't checked various people's albums yet!

Took about a 30-45 minutes to attach the first time I figured it out. (And a while to get to the con with the wind and all of the photo requests.) The feet and legs were taped onto my clothes, as well as the forearm.The rest of the arm was attached to handles that I held acted as extensions into the claw. I could only take the body off by removing the forearms, so when I ran out of tape, it was stuck on me for the rest of the night. Only wore it Saturday.

I think I'm going to work on it a little more and wear it again next year and make my gf a sprite costume of Samus, but she needs to use the bathroom like every 15 minutes so it'll need to be easier to manage.

Oh man, the convention and panels were fantastic. The rest of the con was a bit... eh... but everything OCR and OCAD-related was worth it.

My photos are finally up on Facebook:
