Feels bad man

So how bad is J-con did it improve at all from last year I know it’s a con in it early stages but is there any potential for it to be the next Eirtakon?
>>
>>10006415
It's worse than last year. Trade hall was awful and the same guest is bad idea.

Anytime I see this the idea to run a con rears its ugly head again and it starts doing the evil thing of making sense.

Until I look at the *budget* and concepts I'd drawn up for a 350-400 person level event with no fucking guest and laugh myself stupid again. It's at least a 2 year run-in, with a 12 month actual work schedule. And that's without even knowing what exactly it would cost.

The amount of work involved is not something doable when I'm also grinding ten hours a day putting my arse imprint in a ten euro in an office chair.

Not to mention I'm pretty much the person nobody would wantr to work for. You need a certain amount of charisma and drive and general people skills and I'm about 15 -20 years behind the curve on that.

On the plus side, at least I'm *aware* of that fucking problem but good God is it infuriating.

Pic is from Kaizokukon 17.

Also.

Either their marketing person sucks - because this is literally the first I've heard of it.

Or I'm finally getting to old for this shite and nobody's sponsering FB posts at me
>>
That was terrible.

Holy jaysus, it was this weekend? Was Eirtakon and its knockoff J-Con not traditionally supposed to be in November?

I've got a lot of stuff from these cons, but I'll call it here or I'll be at it all night.

I still think 2015 was the best year.

Also.

Why the fuck did none of my corrections and rotations stick. Again?
>>
Was it at least better than Shurikon? That was fucking miserable.
>>
My god this thread is sad.
Is this what the con scene in Ireland is? Unattractive, barely-literate, broke people paying more money than they're willing to part with to stand in a boring venue filled with other unattractive, barely-literate broke people, and complain about it anonymously afterwards?
>>
>>10007064
Well there's already been a few public complaints about it on their Facebook but what the fuck do ye expect here? 4chan is supposed to be anonymous and it's not like they're going to take any feedback on board even if you do have a moan at them on Facebook anyway
>>
Heard thete was some edgelord walking around with a hoody that was covered in hentai and when he was asked to remove it his mum got really aggressive.
>>

>when he was asked to remove it his mum got really aggressive
Holy fuck, absolutely based
>>
>>10007411

About three or four people had the same hoody. It's something that looks like they got it off Wish. An all over black and white print - lots of o-faces and liquid dripping out of mouths
>>
Imagine forking out that much money to run a con and it being that shit. Other non-profit cons around the country do better jobs than this

We have.

Why do you think there're no more cons in Ireland? Nobody else is left who knows much about what they're doing and anyone who tries, tries to go big early rather than build the experience.

shoutout to adam

Lads MCM is a joke right now. Different RDS building this year. No signs of where it is. I bought the Saturday general entry and was given a weekend ticket. The autograph guests are late at their tables. Typical MCM being typical MCM
>>
All Jcon had going for it was the venue really. I've been both years and this year was pretty much a carbon copy of last year. Same guests, panels and events but now over two days. Hell I wouldn't be surprised if all the trade hall stands were in the exact same position as last year.
>>
Anyone get pics of 2Booty yesterday lads
>>
>>10011051
There's Q-con, Akukamkon and Kaizokukon left.

Kaizokukon is good but it's started to feel samey. It's not fun anymore.

I haven't been to the others because I'd be going by myself and that's not fun. I don't know anyone anymore.
>>
>>10011744
It's sad really too many egos in the cosplay community right now. I miss when it you could have a bit of banter with people now people are too up their own arse.
>>
>>10011989
The internet and instagram have ruined everything fun. All this digital social media shite just makes everyone misereable
>>
Ehh, I'll agree. This years JCon didn't feel at all different from last years. The best part is just getting in-character and playing them out. I myself was acting in-character and that was better than anything the con itself has on offer.
