Who's going?
>>
I'm celebrating Halloween elsewhere.
>>
i go every year, gonna have fun at the tea party
>>
>>9620761
cool, why did you bother commenting?
>>
>>9620134
I hope I get laid.
>>
>>9621073
Gonna continue bitching about this until its over. Stop having conventions on holidays.
>>

>Stop having conventions on holidays.
what? are you new to cosplay? Majority of cons are over holidays. It's often the only way cons can afford to rent out the con centers as they get huge discounts. Conventions are not cheap to run.
It was either going to be labor day weekend like before, or halloween, and the oregon convention center won't let two similar events run that close together - RCCC was already there so they had to take halloween
>>
>>9622331
Didn't they used to host this somewhere else? Fucking go back there.

I don't think you get why this is an issue. or are you ok with Halloween being national cosplay day?

I'm sorry but I think it's lame as fuck to dress up as fucking Elsa and gay ice skating anime characters on Halloween.
>>
>>9622353
At this point I'm assuming you're a troll but I'll humor you
Yes, they hosted it at the Hilton + Red Lion at the Quay in Vancouver. That's no longer an option, because the Red Lion is closing and they'd have to cap attendance really low.
If you don't like cosplay maybe leave this board, and also Halloween is probably the most appropriate day to dress up
>>
>>9622357
No troll. Legit mad that this is overshadowing Halloween.

Also this board is for more than just cosplay.

Why does this con have to be in the area? So they can't go back to where they came from, go up to Seattle or somewhere in NorCal. I bet they have no cons in NorCal.
>>
>>9622360
Different anon, Halloween sucks hahahaha it's not even a real holiday
>>
>>9622360
They came from Portland, they're staying in Portland. Why would they move to a different city with already established conventions and leave half of their attendees behind and upset because the only con in the area is gone? Cons just don't up and relocate like that, the con is not overshadowing halloween, and there are cons in norcal. You're just spewing on about stuff you know nothing about at this point
>>
My girlfriend is cute :)
>>
>>9622367
>it's not overshadowing Halloween
You're wrong. Otherwise there'd be a real Halloween meet.
>>
>>9622369
I'm starting to get a sneaking suspicion of who you people are
>>
>>9622375
I guarantee you don't know
>>
>>9622385
I do but I won't say because who cares, anyways halloween sucks ahahahha nigga you dumb
>>
>>9622387
This is a blue board.
>>
>>9622390
Why do you like halloween, like for real, I assume you're 18+ so why even care?
>>

Is this your first time on /cgl/?

>>9622393
and then here comes this faggot out of the loop, go back to /fit/ you gook
>>
>>9622391
You realize it's more than a candy holiday, right?
>>
>>9622398
Not the version celebrated now
>>
I'm going. Last two years were great. I might be Finn (Star Wars) again. Me and a friend plan on being Sailor Neptune and Uranus. If not Prince Philip (Sleeping Beauty) is my back up.
>>
Staffing, not giving no shits, no idea what I'm gonna wear, don't care anymore.
>>
>>9622446
Yeah. I'm looking to do fun pagan shit.
>>
I plan to if Portland hasn't burnt to the ground by then. I had fun last year at the convention center, it's a comfy size.
>>
>>9622860
I'm sure you would fag
>>
>>9622370
Idk who wants to pay for two real Halloween meets. But if you're not going to con why don't you organize something for others not going?
>>
>>9622360
Wait, are you mad that cosplayers are overshadowing your normie Halloween costume?
>>
>>9623269
What's a normie Halloween costume?
>>
This would be my first time going. Must-dos/don't-bothers?
>>
>>9624240
Don't bother going
>>
>>9624243
That bad? Is this thread an indication of what it's like?
>>
>>9625273
No, it's fun. This thread is butthurt. It got exponentially better since moving to the convention center.
>>
>>9625273
I have no idea why everyone is so mad about this con. It's definitely a SMALL con, but go with a good crew and have fun. It's around halloween and in Portland so there's still shit to do even if theres not much happening at the con.

I would say its in the awkward space of having con attendance that fit the Red Lion but on the convention center. Also the average age is really young or it was last year.
>>
>>9625273
It's just some faggots being comedians
>>
>>9624240
Hang out with your friends. That's where the fun is.
You will have to make your fun. It's a smaller con.
Don't go to those god awful cosplay panels where people dress up as the characters and giggle at each other
The dealers hall will be over priced so keep your phone out to compare
Karoke is fun
The event will end early so unless you know any room parties get there earlier to enjoy most of it
Jail bait everywhere
>>
>>9625332
It felt pretty full for the first year at the convention center. They outgrew the Red Lion/Hilton in Vancouver years ago but the large free park made it manageable. I think the year before last it rained most of the weekend and made it painfully obvious attendees couldn't all fit in the con space. Felt so sorry for the poor artists stuck outside in tents.
>>
>>9625310
Doubtful. Pdx has no good cons.
>>
>>9625332
>there's fun shit to do in Portland
Yeah, if you're an alcoholic. Have fun getting chased by the homeless.
>>
>>9627723
I would have agreed before Kumo's move to the convention center. They really stepped it up and are even bringing over Japanese guests now.
>>
>>9627897
>weeb cons are good
Have fun drooling on your friends
>>
>>9627995
why are you even here if you don't enjoy weeby things

I've never been to this con. I don't even really go to cons. I just want this one out of my area.
>>
>>9628661
Then fuck off and let people actually discuss it
>>
>>9628661
how about you leave Portland instead?
>>
>>9622708
This. Probably will be my last year staffing too. I miss late night drinking
>>
>>9620134
fuck yea. They really stepped up their lolita game this year. I'm ready to open my wallet for more brand.

>>
>>9629171
Then why do you care unless you live somewhere nearby
>>
>>9629324
Nearby isn't technically Portland. Are you from here? You don't seem to know about city limits.
>>
>>9629348
you must live east of 82nd if you're this bitter
>>
>>9628661
>>9627995
>>9624243
what is wrong with you? Why would you hate this con so much? Just don't go if you don't like it, it's really easy to avoid
>>
>>9621560
>Stop having conventions on holidays.
Much preferred over the geniuses in making an anime convention during a thanksgiving weekend. They need to be tarred, feathered and dragged through the streets.
>>
>>9629427
I fucking hate thanksgiving with my family.

>>9629348
Did you even understand what I'm saying?

>>9629427
What con is that? Is it nothing but people who don't have family?
>>
>>9629447
Yes. I live somewhere near by that isn't technically Portland.
>>
>>9629685
Clackamas pls go
>>
>>9629786
You're forgetting Beavertron, hillsburrito, NoPo, and east of 82nd
>>
>>9630640

I like how "east of 82nd" is a completely different category, as though Portland city limits aren't actually at 162nd
>>
>>9630999
Its a jooooke
>>
>>9630999
I used to live on 122nd and I never cared about people saying I lived in Gresham. Get over yourself.

At least they never scammed anyone like other cons in the area
>>
>>9631479
>>9631531
Yeah but no one is ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT IT
>>
Don't get a badge, the best area is public and doesn't need a one. Based on the number of really good panels getting denied there is going to be crap content and, as per usual, dealers hall is over priced. I would say, save the money, ghost, and hang out in the lobby. Maybe if their numbers drop they will stop allowing in 30+ "ask x fandom anything" bullshit
>>
speaking of (the lack of) good content, anyone know if Fakku is back? I genuinely enjoyed their panels last year, especially for a con that really seems to draw in much younger crowds.
>>
>>9633612
they were at Rose City. I hope they are at Kumori too.
>>
>>9633634
They had a booth at Kumori last year.

The convention is fine ignore the fucking morons who can't deal with there being an anime convention in portland or that it was forced to move venues.
>>
>>9632213
You sound like an idiot

>>9634328
Or mad that it costs money and can’t comprehend that it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to run a convention in the convention center
>>
Any news on a btssb fashion show?
>>
>>9628661
Ok I am genuinely curious, how does this con impact you so much that you would go out of your way to find this thread and complain about it?
>>
>>9637224
I got invited to do makeup for the fashion show for a free pass to the con but sadly I'll be away. Pretty sad about it.
>>
>>9636883
But do you even care?
>>
>>9637224

almost october and no news, probably going to be the mods and their friends like always
>>
>>9637224

Panelist here, I have a prelim copy of the schedule and there's only one fashion show listed. Baby doesn't have their own. If they're supplying pieces to the comm's fashion show, nobody has been told yet.

>>9637544

When the only people that apply to be models are the mods and their friends, of course the only people walking in the show will be the mods and their friends.
>>
>>9637544
Yes, the mods and their 40 closest friends
>>
>>9637572
Every fashion show the comm has been a part of has had a hella range of people. Don’t come here making shit up

Same panelist-anon here. Turns out the fashion show is Baby/AatP's and we aren't actually putting it on like I thought we were. They just labeled it as "fashion show" in the schedule.

Cause all the shitty posters in this thread aren't going
>>
>>9650583
Yeah because a shitty thread on /cgl/ totally sums up a conventions in real life
>>
>>9652339
Exactly. Kumo was amazing last year. I honestly thought the con was going to die a slow death at Red Lion since the majority of con-goers didn't buy a badge and just hung out in the hotel/park. They really saved it by moving and I'm excited to see how they step it up again this year.
>>
Pretty last minute but is anyone looking for an extra roommate? I'm a hygienic cosplay gril who doesn't know anyone going to Kumori so I won't bring back any parties
>>
>>9652583
>Kumo
gross.

>>9651978

I'm sure some of the people in this thread are going. Glad I'm not.

Rose City is like 10000 times better.

Also hygienic cosplay and a girl; I have a room, just me in it. If you want more deets my e-mail is fahrfara@gmail.com

That's sad

>>9657288

Sure. Hmu.

How the fuck is this con affording all the guests they're getting this year?

And why the fuck are they waiting until like two days before registration closes to announce them? Talkin bout that teddyloid announcement.
>>
https://www.kumoricon.org/events

What does everyone think of the schedule?
>>
>>9658975
Sent you an email!
>>
>>9659039
I was really shocked that they had enough funds for teddyloid.

>>9659283
All I can say is it looks fantastic
>>
>>9659283

I thought my panel wasn't going to be very well attended and then I remembered that my description has a really tempting tagline and now I have a sinking feeling that I may actually fill the room and make a fool of myself while I lecture about deep time geology and the concept of extraterrestrial planet-consuming parasite organisms.
>>
>>9659283

Anyone been to the JoJo posing panel before? Who's running it?
>>
Has anyone gotten any reply for the fashion show yet?

>Kumo originally from Portland.
>Can't stay at Hilton / Red Lion in Vancouver because Red Lion is being demolished.

>>
>>9663094
>Aki was a sinking ship at the time of the move
Is Aki not still a sinking ship?
>>
>>9663283
It was before Aki announced they'd been bought up, and everyone thought it was its final year.
>>
>>9663288
Didn't know they'd been bought, but still, I can't imagine many people would chose Aki over Kumo unless it's a matter of transportation and whatnot. Aki has... 3 guests announced and it's happening this weekend? I can't imagine they're going to last
>>
>>9663094
How about not having a fucking con of any kind on Halloween?
>>
>>9663304

God you're a salty bitch. You could cure cancer with the kind of effort you're putting into shitting on this con.
>>
Never seen people with such a baseless vendetta against a con before.
As salty as y'all been, it's no wonder we have such a desolate community in the PNW.

It's really fucking bizarre to be honest

>>9663329
I'm happy that you're angry.

Halloween used to be fun. Now its a gay animu con. Thanks pdx.

>>9663349
Not really.
>>
My bf has work obligations, but I already agreed to roomshare to help a friend out.

Not sure yet what I'll be doing since I don't wear cosplay myself.

Hyped for Teddyloid though.

I'm going to retro game con instead.
>>
Sage is my favorite flavor
>>
>>9661954
0>>9662606
I came here to ask this too. It's less than a week away, have they really not let anyone know yet?
I'm volunteering and had to submit my schedule Friday without knowing if all Saturday morning was going to be taken up or not.
I know 2 other people who applied and haven't heard anything either.
