Don't forget that CMK is a signing event with lots of guests, unlike the weekend cons like Bitten. And in early June, so they need to start ramping up the guest appearances. Bitten 3 isn't until mid-August. Also, SM and ME grab guests whenever they can, not to a schedule. That's why Hallowhedon 4 has four guests, say, compared to Bitten's two. And of course people can cancel, so the later they sign, the more committed (we hope) they shall be.
Historically, most of the Bitten guests have signed on late due to filming commitments, so we may have to wait until mere weeks before. But the last two cons were fabulous and the guests we have announced thus far are awesome so.... hang in there! We'll have some brilliant guests and a wonderful time, I'm confident of it. The Bitten cons have been my favourites of all thus far.
In the meantime, yes... let's think about party themes. I bought a brand-new corset for Bitten 2 and never got to wear it so am hoping I'll get a chance to show it off this year...
