Kita is around the corner, who's liver is ready?

Actually really hype. It is the highlight of this britfags year

A week to go and I have stuff still to do on my cosplays. Should be able to manage it though.

Do you get free brekkies in Bluebell or do you have to make it all yourself?
>>
>>9594668
everyone onsite and with the badge can go into the rootes restaurant for free breakfast I believe, but you can have your own food if you prefer

>>9594673
All I needed to know. Thanks m8

What's the best food to scoff over the weekend if I'm planning to drink from Thursday to Sunday?

Most cons I just stock up on noodles and then just have something meaty around 7pm-ish. I can't remember what I did last year at Ame, but each night I was boozing till everyone else was dead.

What works for everyone else usually?

anybody know why spooner was asked to leave todays meet?
>>
>>9594771
Dirty Duck is pretty decent for food. The shop's not bad for sandwiches/microwave meals either.
>>
I'm not sure what Spooner is expecting from Kitacon? I just imagine everyone mostly ignoring him all weekend...
>>
Guys this is gonna sound retarded but how do you talk to people at cons?

The people I bump into are all really weird. I want to make Con friends but how do I find good people and talk to them - especially if they're already in a group?
>>
>>9595794
See someone cosplaying from a series you like? Talk to them about it (providing they're not a coswhore only dressed as them for attention).

Be a fa/tg/uy? Go to the games room, join in a game, make friends.

Or go to the pub quiz, ask to join a small team, bond with them for a few hours.

Some groups will always be insular, so don't worry if you can't bond with them. But be nice and chat to people, and you soon enough you'll make some friends. Hell, if you're at Kita come say hello, fellow anon.

He's only attending on the saturday. Does he even drink? I'm guessing he's acting like this is another MCM or some shit..
>>
>>9595794
Don't get too obsessed with talking to people, just have a beer and be chill. Chances are if you're not stressing about being social, you'll end up just naturally talking with people and having a good time.

So long as you're not drooling and you've showered there's not too much that can go wrong, although don't panic if some groups just aren't being chatty. Some people come to cons to just be insular and that's no fault of you or any other outsider. In fact, sometimes it's good to talk to people just to know who NOT to talk to, if that makes sense.

In other words: It really doesn't matter. Just chill and don't overthink anything
>>
>>9595794
Have a wingman so if conversation dries up you can fall back.
Cold approaching people on my own feels awful.
>>
>>9595794
Pretty sure the people at kita are planning an ice breaking thing after the opening ceremony.

honestly as long as you aren't a complete creep you should be fine like don't blatantly talk to the "hawt" girls because you wanna smash and shit.

Good point, what's everyone cosplaying as this weekend?

Mike, buddy, if I have to explain what 2B is to you, you have to just stop on here, ok? This is what happens when you're more interested in that jail bait than the actual community. Stick to what you know, 4chan isn't for you.

Jesus Christ these people are so fucking awful it's genuinely killing my hype for Kita.

Like I'm a socially anxious guy looking to make friends, but these guys are in a whole different league...

>I am claustrophobic

If you're gonna be a snowflake at least fucking get your own disorder right.

Reading these cringy posts makes me happy that I have my issues under control so I won't have to risk the potential of dealing with any of these people.
>>
>>9598785
How did society advance to the point where people act like their disabilities are medals and will go so far to lie as to get sympathy?
Has anyone really been far as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
>>
>>9598864

Sometimes I beat myself up over my own problems and then threads like those never fail to make me feel better about myself. They actually make me look fairly normal.
>>
>>9598874
>getting caught in a big crowd is a terrible nightmare for me

If you are going to go to an event with a couple thousand people, accept crowds might just happen.

They seem to think everyone will bend over backwards to look after them all convention.
>>
>>9598888
I'm the anon you replied to and I have agoraphobia which involves really bad problems with crowds.
The solution is to literally just avoid the bigger rooms if you think they might get filled up. Really want to attend x panel or party? Tough it up or stay outside.

OT I guess, I'm just as annoyed as anybody that these types of people expect others to cater to their problems.
>>
>>9598927
My direct response was refering to the shared image, where they are asking everyone to move because they are a super special snowflake.

You seem pretty down to earth and realistic about the available solutions for your agoraphobia. I can see why those who expect a medal annoy you specificaly.

Genuine question, never been to kita.

Loud minority as usual, it's easy to cherry pick the worst.

>Loud minority as usual, it's easy to cherry pick the worst.

Sadly, they are also a very loud minority at the con itself

I wasn't at last kita. What's the gaff I'm hearing about Wristbands? They those flimsy paper ones that just stick on? I got doubts I'll be able to keep mine in tact all weekend.
>>
>>9599958

I'm pretty sure they were the laminated plastic type of ones. So they will last the con really easily, and it means con badges arent required to be worn 24/7

>>9599977
Fabric this year

>>9599977
That means keeping it on when trying to have a shower and shit though if it's like a festival one where it gets mangled if you try to remove it.

I don't think they'll have the courage to actually go outside and socialise to that level.

I don't wanna make generalisations about people with BPD, but I have BPD and that post made me cringe, and sounded like something someone else with it would never post.

I'm betting that thread is 90% self diagnosers.

"I have BPD cos I read a thing in Tumblr once and it totally sounded like me! Omg!"


Also, non related but what makes this venue better than the Hilton?

Not been to Ame before so I'm new to it. I much prefer just being to head downstairs and being at the con than having to get taxis everywhere.
>>
>>9600580
We have rooms this year
>>
>>9600580
>what makes this venue better than the Hilton?
4 bars being within 2 mins walking distance of eachother
>>
>>9600580
Bigger venue and cheaper booze. And a really good spot outside for socializing.
>>
>>9600583
>>9600585

Well, I'm sold then!
Don't think I ever bought a drink at the Hilton as even with the Kita 'discount' the prices were awful.
That and the range they had was dire.
>>
>>9598165
how is it possible to have that amount of mental disorders?? Doesn't it start cancelling each other out?
>>
>>9600640
Yeah but it was a nice place at least
>>
>>9600659

It just becomes about who can claim to have the most excuses to be shit at socialising by this stage
>>
>>9600640
Drinks are cheap yeah, especially considering there are no other alternatives it's nice to see everything so modestly priced.

And yeah, the steps are banging, it's just so.. In the middle of everything so there are usually crowds chilling til late late. I think last Ame we were out at least until 4am then up again at 8 for breakfast every night. Plus last year a guy smashed the cover off a power unit to plug in his portable DJ table and set up so we had shitty mix-tapes and crappy music, but it was 4 and people were wasted so it was all good.

Does anyone know if the Blind-Date is ran by the same guy who did it last year at Ame? I kind of want to see if the panel has improved from the train wreck last year but there is other good stuff on that night.

Also fuck off whoever scheduled the two things I most wanted to see, the Jpop by Digi and MAD running at the same time.
>>
>>9600861
MAD was complete shit last year. Just stuff he'd shown the year before and endless clips of a show he loved and nobody gave a shit about. If it wasn't for the fact I was trapped in the room I probably would have left.
>>
>tfw cant go to half the UK cons because I do not want to run into someone who frequents them
>>
>>9600966

How does that stop you?
Just go anyway and ignore them.

If you have a legit reason beyond just disliking them, inform the con staff, and nothing will happen.
>>
>>9600995
I don't think that was a serious post, anon...
>>
>>9600861
The guy actually got permission. Some of the ame organisers came out shitting themselves thinking we'd gone rogue and wrecked the venue. They weren't being shits though, they just asked if we'd gotten permission, they said they'd have to double check, something about insurance and not wanting to get charged. Anyway TL:DR It was fine, then came back and said it all checked out.
>>
>>9600995
I have before and nothing happened.
He got banned from one con for assault and it got reversed because he's friends with an organiser and drew him some MLP porn.
>>
>>9600966
Name and shame, anon- keeping quiet about dangerous people only benefits them.

I'm guessing it's an AL thing? They have at LEAST two rapists on their LAGC team, everyone knows about it and just doesn't care. It's disgusting. But AL cons are shit anyway
>>
Seeing the cringe posts on Facebook makes me feel so much second hand embarrassment.

"I have crippling anxiety and depression!
> come up to me strangers and talk to me"

P.sure anxiety cancels out attention whoring
>>
On the train down and I haven't seen any weeby looking people going the same way. I think that's a first

Also which bus do I have to get from the train station?
>>

the 12x goes to the arts center from just outside Coventry station if I recall. but a lot fo people are heading down today so you might just find people and can follow them

Was it really that bad? I've not seen it in like five years so want to check it out but it really is going to be shite I'll give it a miss, we missed the Jpop last year and only went for the last 10 minutes but what we saw was great fun.

Good going anon, you fucked up even before you arrived

>>
>>9600659

They kinda do. I think they believe they have all these things, when in most cases a GP will diagnose you with things like PTSD and an anxiety disorder in the meantime, when they need more time to diagnose you properly.

PTSD would then lead to BPD.

What I hate about the post is that they seem to think mental illnesses are like Pokemon cards or something. They aren't fun to have. BPD is horrible.

A main symptom of it is a phobia of rejection, so their post isn't something you'd think someone with it would post. Therapists even tell people with BPD not to be so open on social media.

Oh well.
Posts like it make me know who to avoid.

So how much of a clusterfuck is Kita going to be, anons?

Will we beat the ambulance callout record?

Will someone fall and break their necks on the stairs?

Will there be blatant 'one rule for you, one for the committee and their friends' incidents again?

Will the one hour events, no area to queue for the dealer's room, and making the bring and buy/games room share the same space be a disaster?

Will it fucking rain all weekend?

Place your bets!
