He was a legend there was a halo odst cosplay with an actual revolving gatling gun he was unreal.

Yeah she doesn't have a display page. Most of the other girls who were in that DC group do. They're also not single so don't get your hopes up anon

Ive always wondered about this at cons but how old is too old to go to the yugioh/ccg stuff. I played a guy in the bar at eirtakon but i kinda feel too old to be playing. Im 24.
>>
>>9548377
You'll find people yer age at the bigger ones, I'm 24 as well. In Akumakon, there were people over 18 playing Pokemon and Smash but last year and Eritkon, I destroyed 2 kids in the pokemon tournament and just felt bad. At least one lad my age destroyed me after that.
Try to find buddies yer own age to do that shit with if yer afraid

Where? All my friends are normies and my fiance hasnt got the patience for card games. Anywhere in dublin these people hang out?

Dublin, Galway and Waterford seem to be nerd/weeb central

Prob be there sat, normally I'd make an effort but this year seems boring, no proper guest and some meh panels

Thought MCM was shite both days, so much so that afyer being Seiko Kimura on the saturday, I didnt even bother being Widowmaker on Sunday

Their biggest announcement is that spar will be open, so honestly I'm done with Brocon

>>9551986
Spar is 7 days though, no?
>>
>>9552384
Not the one in UL, it closes at the weekend because the campus is usually like a ghost town then. Plus UL is on holidays so idk if spar would even be open normally
>>
Remember last year, the lad who owned the student bat was saying to me, he'd happily do some kind of deal in the bar with Brocon of they asked and he even tried getting into them but forgot to
>>
>>9552745
I'm not surprised to be honest, sure contact details were left with brocon to organise a guest this year and they never bothered.

One year though, I remember the bar had some kind of pizza and pints deal and from what I can remember, it was very popular

By Default since it looks like an unnaposed run. If nobody voted against it....

One the one hand, it's bound to be a disaster.

On the other, fuckit, only ever going to get to go to the one Worldcon might aswell gor to this one.

It'll probably be done to stuck-upo American standards with peacebonding and pink-tips everywhere in case on of the visiting loonies gets scared....

On the one hand, it's a Worldcon. But in fandom, world generally means 'Mostly America' with a few tokens. So expect a lot of uptight and arrogant 'fen' who think they know better than you.
>>
>>9589068
But I'm still going to go.


Might have friends coming from abroad.
>>
someone give me a quick rundown on Worldcon
>>
>>9590248
75 year long convention.
Started out before the War. Stopped so everyone could work on some project in Manhatten. Or in Heinlein's case, iinadvertantly write about something remarkably similar....

It's where the Hugo awards get ruined over arguments about killing puppies. People figure out where the next Worldcon would be, and quietly observe the traditions handed down from the First Fandom - (I think we're on the nineteenth one, check with the mailing list. )

The big difference between this and the cons you're sort of used to is that it's also a business event. Sometimes, well known authors just show the fuck up because it's Worldcon, and they're fans too - and there're connections and business that can be done.

Also. You're not paying to attend Worldcon, you're paying to join the World Science Fiction Society - Worldcon is just a perk of being a member.

Which is why, traiditionally, even with small anime cons, you're not buying entrance to the con, you're paying membership of the convention.

Not that most people notice the distinction, but there is one. You got to remember that the person wearing a staff t-shirt is a member of the same convention, as are the committee

If you go into it expecting another Eirtakon, you'll be dissapointed. It's not like that. It is very much an old event.

But go anyway. It's not going to be cheap. But itt'll likely never come here again. And sure,m it'll be a grand excuse for a pissup all the same.

Will be interesting to see how it pans out anyway. They must have some funds behind them if they've confirmed Croker as the venue and guests already. I wouldn't mind having a smaller and more scaled down version of Eirtakon across one floor instead of the amount of trekking you'd have to do across 3 floors like the last few years

It's time to start gearing up and heading to the UK for decent cons then lads. I've always been spoilt by living within easy travelling distance of DCU/Croker for Eirtakon but it'll still be nice to do the whole travelling and hotel thing for a new convention. Kitacon sounds like it's good from reading the Brit threads, partying seems to be a main focus

I know the con's only going into its first year but if you can get Croker for a Saturday then you should be able to get ANYONE who's not a cosplayer. Pure reeks of 'ah sure they'll do'

>>9626559
Heard good things about Amecon. Load up the car. Drive back full of shit. Would just need a passenger or two to make it worthwhile.

>>9627096
They have 'Pocky eating contest' as a main event.

Never mind you could have a thousand weebs show up with conballs as blue as enda's shirt and they'd still go bankrupt at the end of it.
>>
>>9625946
I literally just figured it out on the way down....

Money Laundering.
Anime cons are perfect for it as it's all cash over the table.
3000 people paying 20 quid in when only a thousand peoiple actually showed up.
A few anons bleat about double-counting people who left.
Nobody blinks. If the even pays for itself out opf the real gate attendance, all the rest has been cleaned up nicely.

Grow to a large enough scale and sure the VAT man's wetting his beak but it's still nice clean laundered cash when you're done.

Kinahancon 2018?
>>
>>9626528
You mean Leo
>>
>>9599029
Will there be a quiz? That was the best bit about Eirtakon
>>
>>9636633
There won't even be a fucking ballpit.

Seriously. If they're advertising 'rock-paper-scissors' as a main event, and a Pocky Eating contestt with a ***cash prize**.... and they have Taisyo coming along.

It's be worth it to see Taisyo again but fuck me advertise that and not some eejit event that other cons have the sense not to even try.

There's a reason why nobody's had an 'eating contest at a con before. It's actually fucking dangerous.

If some little naruto cunt manages to choke himself to death on pocky and you don't have insurance, the wigpeople are coming for your shit. Personally. They take your house, your bodypillows and even your collection of Hentai to pay some little scrotes hundred thousand euro claim. For the rest of your life.

holy fuck lads, are they as awkwardly cringey and half put together ramshackle of events as I think that they are?
I may just go to one to laugh at boggers / knackers dressing up

Holy fuck the J Con after party is 2 hours and under 18s are allowed. Why did I buy tickets to go to this...

So who's going to report in on the shitshow for the rest of us lads?

I love this con. I'm living for the cringe.

This fucking blows, the games room sucks and its a downscaled Eirtakon. 20 euro!
>>
>>9689604
pics?
>>
>>9689604
Yeah I've gone to absolutely nothing all day
>>
Our queen is on at 3 doing her lolita panel again, someone go and take photos :3
>>
I saw one guy being walked out of Croker surrounded by security earlier, anyone any idea why? I'm a mad nosy cunt
>>
>>9689650
Was that the guys with the cameras? I saw multiple security men talking to guys with cameras and they told them to follow them out. Hmmm.
>>
>>9689653
No, it was a guy in a browny beigey trench coat - didn't see the camera guy.
>>
>>9689655
Was talked to next to the cloak room and then escorted out, for context
>>
Ah cmon lads. Need more goss and pictures.
>>
I have to say, the only thing that was really /wrong/ with today for me was the weirdly lax weapons policy. There was one lad walking around with a claw hammer and I was just like???
>>
>>9689728
Well what did it do right? Did the sake tasting go ahead?
>>
>>9689733

Seemed to, it was a stall with a border around it to keep the kiddies away. I hope they do the whiskey tasting eirta used to do last year, yer man that did them was so nice
>>
>>9689737
>it was a stall with a border around it to keep the kiddies away

Jesus the absolute state. They should put the money towards having worthwhile panels and events on in a smaller venue instead of spending their entire budget on having it at Croker and cosplay guests nobody cares about
>>
>>9689737

That was supposed to say 'used to do next year' but sher
>>
>>9689742

It was a bit rough desu. I think it was just good enough that when they do it next year they'll get most of the people back to give it another go. And they definitely got enough people to go again, the place was jammers
>>
>>9689748
>the place was jammers
I knew it'd be shit but this doesn't surprise me either. I know people really just wanted to feel like they were going to Eirtakon for another year. Myself included but I couldn't justify it. I'm gonna head to some UK cons like Amecon/Kita next year instead, hopefully
>>
What is wrong with you people

>Dat 2B tho. Saber Alter also bae
Only good thing about today, I was standing by the door so I got a full view of 2Booty tho I ended up on the instagram video so fuck that.
It was my first ever con too, are they all that disappointing? I cant get over the price of that Psycho Zaku at 150 euro its like they didnt wanna sell it
>>
>>9689875
They started to descend in quality after Eirtakon 2013 in combination with lazy staff and and trying to make it more kid friendly
>>
>>9689887
Fukken shame lad, i know its too much to expect but I was hoping for doujins or manga or actual con merch being sold but there was fuck all bar 1 or 2 pleb shit I spotted on my 9th trip up and down the halls trying to ward off buyers remorse on that ticket. I swear the entire left side of the main trade hall was literal tumblr art. Maybe my chinese friend has me spoiled with his tales of cons in Hong Kong but damn.
>trying to make it more kid friendly
Yeah I noticed how awkward that was though there were alot of underage there, though they had some shit that slipped through the gap like that cosplayer selling her topless pics and those 2 literal lolis running around as furries.
>>
>>9689818
Pics?
>>
2B's arse might be the only thing we can salvage from this con, lads. Don't let me down
>>
>>9689903
>like that cosplayer selling her topless pics

Mfw saw one of the Japanese embassy employees browsing those lmao
>>
Any good cosplayers at it? Was going through the tag on instagram but wasn't much there.
>>
>>9689931
Nice, was it the qt in the kimono?
>>
>>9689946
Nah, it was the middle aged dude in the suit
>>
Who was selling topless pics of herself? Surely not Ms. King, our Queen
>>
>>9689953
Eh ya know the corridor where people were selling pics of themselves? Yeah it was the first table you see. I dont know any of the cosplayers names though but Im inclined to say she was a blonde but it could have been a wig and I wasnt exactly looking at anything other than the massive censor square on her chest so fuck if I know but I never saw anyone that wasnt staff at the table
>>
>>9689962
I wasn't actually in attendance today which is why I'm asking. Purely for science of course
>>
>>9689962
It wouldn't have been the Austrian bird would it? I know at least one of the girls on the cosplay panel said that was her stuff being sold there
>>
>>9689999
Ya know what? I think it was nana kuronoma judging by her pictures on her store, nice baps but overpriced
>>
>you will never have whiskey tasting banter like eirta
Why even live
>>
Praise 2Booty
>>
What were the booths like? Do you think it'd be worth going to next time?
>>
>>9690797
I have high hopes for next year. A lot of stuff different since they were limited to one day, but all things considered it was pretty neat.
By booths do you mean artists? Pretty decent selection, A lot of non-anime but I guess that's to be expected nowadays. Only one stood out as being sub-par, some artist doing "edgy" grotesque art that honestly looked like childrens scribbles. Maybe they'll be stricter in the artist selection next year when they have more applications.
>>
I enjoyed it for the most part. And it was an okay start. Didn't like the after party having both drink and kids around. And no follow up event to that either. Except kick out at 8.

There could have been a lot more events. Or at the very least added extra options like screening rooms.

The place was terribly signposted desu. And only way I knew where to expect stuff was because of previous eirtakons. And even then it was way differently structured.

They got good numbers though and it felt a whole lot less insincere than the MCMs and DCC cons. Those things feel super corporate.


Anyways.

Panels were okay.
Cos play contest was terribly organized and MC'd. The guy barely read the entry before he'd start announcing it. And there was a load of empty slots and miscues.
>>
Was she there? If not, shit con
>>
>>9691235
Kauzukukon in March next year.
Looks good.

Committee leaking the dates to their friends to all the best accomodation got sold off but, so it goes.
>>
>>9691307
I was at Kaizokucon Last year. Stayed in the river Lee hotel. Wouldn't know the good places to stay anyways desu. And can't see how much the committee leaking the dates could really affect things like. I don't know what constitutes good places in this context desu. Cork and UCC is pretty walkable.
But in fairness. Kaizokucon is really good craic like. Last year the funniest thing to me is that while there were all these cosplay people there was a wedding going on in the church literally right beside the con. Plus. I always appreciate the fact that pints are cheaper than a fiver.

Kaizokucon has low key potential to be the best drinking con thats going.

Also Akumakon is next for me anyways. Because galway is such a nice spot con or no con. Though I'd be hoping to get a better place to stay than where I was last year.

Also, the committee members for all the cons announcing/advertising at J Con were pretty lifeless and not doing a great job of selling their respective cons. I really get the vibe as years pass by all the con people who organize them really lose their pep for it.
>>
>>9691301
Why would she anon, sure she's living it up in Japan isn't she?

Wasn't one of her cosplay friends there?
>>
>>9691867
She came back last year for Eirtakon so I thought she might've graced us with her presence again
>>
>>9691870
Ah but wasn't that the last Eirtakon? It was also a con she went to where this is new. I'm sure she's still friends with some of the cosplay scene, if we even still have one.
>>
>>9691875
How did she even get known in the cosplay scene in the first place? I know our scene isn't great by standards but there are much better cosplayers than her in the country. Was she buddies with Eirta staff or what?
>>
>>9691879
I'm sure she was buddies with the Eirta staff, she seemed to be involved with them a lot. I think thats the only reason. 100 per cent nothing to do with her skills or lack of. I hope there are better. I don't know many to be honest. Bar her and her friends. The cosplay scene seems quite close and kinda like a clique.
>>
>>9691399
Didn't leak it to friends, just to some of the older people who messaged in asking because they needed to book work off and some of the regular traders. Wanted to release the dates earlier but people wanted to wait until JCon.
>>
>>9691906
Honestly not worth getting fussed over then to be honest like.

Just be the guy to get that info like.
>>
So lads,
Whats this I hear about a rumour about some lad trying to roofie girls at the disco?
Anyone make any comment about it?
>>
>>9693538
Heard it was Josie's bf doing it
>>
Lads, what future cons are worth going to? Shurikon? Kaizokucon?
>>
>>9695681
Just go to the UK lad
>>
>>9694131

I want this to be true.
>>
>>9695702
I've heard that Josie's fairly vanilla in the sack and that he feels like he has to get his kicks elsewhere. One of my mates said she was approached for a threesome by him while he was locked
>>
>>9695707

You'd think she'd be more adventurous. Light BDSM is still less painful than a nose piercing.
>>
>>9695707
That's a lie, she's into some messd up shit
>>
>>9696058
Hot. Like what?
>>
>>9696126
She's our queen
>>
>>9696129
Who? Why?
>>
>>9696135
She's the head of the Irish lolita group and has had a long-standing rivalry with Amy King, wrestling for control over the title of Queen of the Irish Con Scene. It's gotten ugly at times
>>
>>9676359
Eww wouldnt even ride her into battle.

She has a face like a slapped arse

Of course. It is widespread

So why was j-con at croke park of all places? Wasn't that insanely expensive compared to other potential places? Are they gonna do it there again next year?
>>
>>9702124
Probably just to cash in on Eirtakon nostalgia since it was on at the exact same place and same time of the year as the last good few Eirtakons. Would prefer if they allocated the budget they're spending on renting out Croker to have a better con at a smaller and less expensive venue next year if they're doing it again, myself

This. It costs lots though.
The only reasons I go to Irish cons are IVGO, smash and seeing the odd good cosplayer. The trader halls sometimes have good shit too.
J-Con is only starting off so it had fuck all. Akumacon and Q-Con better be decent next year or there'll be no craic.

Lads I must inform you this tread has lasted 160 days. I goes without saying that we have hit a personal record on our little space we call home here.
