I have understood that there are a few Swedes around here. Any of you going to UppCon this weekend (16-18 jan)?
If so, we should totally meet.

I wish I'd seen this earlier! I'm going to UppCon tommorrow, so I probably won't have time to find out who you are, but I hope I can find out that later! :D

I was the only male Rock Lee cosplayer around. Anything I might have recognized about you?

Well, I know for sure that I saw you.

No, I don't think so...around 1.55 cm, red and black hair (very long hair :P) I was wearing a black dress, red pantyhoses, black fishnet leggings and black boots.

I wish I'd seen this thread earlier, we could've had a nice chat :) (I disapprove of the lack of Rock Lee cosplayers...lol)

I'm terribly sorry, but I think you're right: I wouldn't especially recognise you on that. Maybe if you had written it before and I had asked everyone in very long red and black hair, I might have found you, but afterwards it's impossible.

Yeah, I wouldn't really expect anyone to find me with that description. It's really vague, and I wasn't the only one there looking like that :P But I hope you had a good time! :)

Likewise, I wish I had seen this sooner. UppCon was only about a 30 minute walk from my flat.

Time for a bit of a necro:
I find myself studying a Master in Uppsala this year and wonder if there is any interest in holding an xkcd meet-up sometime in the future.
Being a veteran of numerous xkcd meet-ups in London I would love to see if there are any xkcd readers residing in this fine city =)

Any takers?

Edit: Maybe we can have a name change for the thread as well to remove the UppCon and make it a general Uppsala thread?
