About one month until Colossalcon. Let's discuss.

>How are your cosplays coming?
>Are you planning your coords?
>Where are you staying?
>What are you excited for?
>Any cosplay predictions?
>Events
>Photoshoots
>Panels
>etc

Let's discuss!
>>
>>9443357
Use the catalog. >>9433058
>>
>>9443386
Or we can let that steaming pile of a thread die
>>
>>9443357
My thread is superior lmfao!
>>
>How are your cosplays coming?
Got some pieces in the mail today! Still trying to figure out wigs.
>Where are you staying?
Nothing's set in stone, but if I end up going it'll be a Kalahari room for sure.
>What are you excited for?
If I do go this year, it'll be my first year not staffing, and while it's hella crowded now, I'd like to try and enjoy the con as an attendee for once.
>Any cosplay predictions?
Man idk. I don't pay attention to things. What's even popular right now?
>Events
I'll probably see what's going on when I'm conscious. Waterpark after-hours maybe? Will definately browse the Flea Market and Craft Faire.
>Photoshoots
Probably not.
>Panels
I usually don't go to panels due to my inability to stay in one place.

>>9443474
It was doomed from the start with that discourse meme man OP image.
>>
>How are your cosplays coming?
My one cosplay is done. I want to touch up some areas but haven't started that yet. Want to make a pool party version and a kigu. I should get started on that this week. I need to make a decent prop too.
>Are you planning your coords?
Figuring out what I want to wear, most I already own but debating if I want to add or make some new accessories or something.
>Where are you staying?
At the Kalahari
>What are you excited for?
Cedar Point, but I'll probably go sometime in May before the con, hanging out, seeing friends, water park time, cosplay shenanigans, animals.
>Any cosplay predictions?
Lots of all the popular stuff right now and lots of pool cosplay, the usual.
>Events
Lolita stuff.
>Photoshoots
If events don't conflict, I'll go to a photoshoot for my one lonely cosplay.
>Panels
Submitted two panels and waiting to see if they get approved.
>etc
I'm always excited for this time of year. It's like I can taste the excitement of driving up there and I can hear the quiet sounds of the Kalahari before 20k nerds take over the whole area. But then again, I can also feel the feelings of it being over before it even starts and looking around the Kalahari after everyone has left.
>>
>>9445492
Panels haven't been approved yet? Usually they have the schedule out a month before con and that's in one week.
>>
>>9443386
That's a drama thread, not an actual con discussion thread.

Let's avoid shitting this one up.
>>
>>9446139
From the FB group:

"Everything should be accepted by may 1st :) we'll also be contacting every panelist to let them know what happens if their panels haven't been accepted at that time. Basically they go on a wait list in case any other panels get cancelled before the con."
>>
>>9446139
There was a bit of a snafu and apparently the programming head was let go. So someone else is handling it. They are probably just a bit behind due to that.
>>
>>9443357

>How are your cosplays coming?
Awesome. Super excited. Good ole DBZ and League.
>Are you planning your coords?
Fly solo usually
>Where are you staying?
Not sure yet? Willing to throw cash for space at Kalahari.
>What are you excited for?
Chicks! Partying! Video Games!
>Events
Sat night rave is going to be stellar.
>Panels
Hotttttttpockettttttts

Also, can someone toss me an offer on a space at Kalahari in their room?

I make damn good money... I just need a bed!!!
>>

>Also, can someone toss me an offer on a space at Kalahari in their room?
There's a "room and ride share" group on Facebook. You're a lot more likely to find something there. These boards are fairly deserted by comparison.

>bumping this thread since its shitty twin got bumped
>>
>>9443357
>How are your cosplays coming?
I'm just gonna be lame an adapt an old League cosplay into a swimsuit version

Then I also wanna do summer Cirno, but I'm not even sure I can tan, so
>>
>>How are your cosplays coming?
Low effort cosplays all day long. I'll be cosplaying as Funky Kong (mario kart wii version) and Old spice Guy (towel and I'm on a horse version)

>>Where are you staying?
Kalahari

>>What are you excited for?
Drinking, making new friends, talking to cute women, volleyball

>>Any cosplay predictions?
2B, Breath of the wild cosplays

>>Events
Rave?

>>Photoshoots
Sure, if there's a gang of DK cosplayers

>>Panels
Maybe

>>etc
Gauranteed to be bumping music through hallways
>>
I'm beginning to think almost everyone who complains about staff at any con are just melodramatic faggots. I've been going to cons for 6 years. Usually with a large group of people I know. We never have problems with staff. Follow directions and rules, don't be an idiot.
>>
>>9449322
Oops wrong colossal thread
>>
>>9449328
Haha fuck yeah!
>>
>>9449331
Y-yeah
>>

>How are your cosplays coming?
I'm rewearing an old one for a group, but aside from that I honestly haven't started. I have all of my supplies though.
>Are you planning your coords?
No
>Where are you staying?
Kalahari
>What are you excited for?
Playing in the waterpark and going to Cedar Point to be honest
>Any cosplay predictions?
Lucoa bikinis.
>Events
Nope
>Photoshoots
Two large groups, but they're being kept a little quiet until we figure out who's in, who will likely drop out, etc.
>Panels
May not even attend the actual con.
>>
Since it wasn't mentioned in the OP (just the question of how cosplays are coming along), what all is everyone cosplaying?
>>
>How are your cosplays coming?
Great. I have one more to complete.
>Are you planning your coords?
Yes.
>Where are you staying?
Kalahari.
>What are you excited for?
Rave, Drinking, hot tubs, chill panels.
>Any cosplay predictions?
Bathing suit Ram & Rem
>Events
Deathrock After Dark, Rave, Formal, Make J Rock Great again.
>Photoshoots
Sailor Moon, Overwatch
>>
>>9450379
You sound like my type of person!!!!

I'm the DBZ guy. Cliche I know
>>
Tentative schedule is up! What do you guys think you'll be attending?

>>
>>9450968

only guarantee rn is the night swim
>>
>>9451070
Those aren't even on the list... When are they and how much does it cost?
>>
It's my first Colossalcon, so I'm really, really excited!
>How are your cosplays coming?
Currently planning out three swimsuit cosplays that I'm fairly sure Ill be able to sew myself. All are idolm@ster cosplays, and I'm not sure if I'll be doing any other series. Just ordered Symphony no. 765 Miki today since it was the one cosplay I didn't feel comfortable making this time around.
>Where are you staying?
Maui sands! I'm hoping it's not too far from the Kalahari.
>What are you excited for?
Seeing friends again, plus I'm going with my best friend from highschool to celebrate our graduating college, so it should be really fun!
>Any cosplay predictions?
Not actually sure, but it seems a good group of cosplayers are planning idolm@ster-related cosplay, whether it be original 765 or CG, so I'm looking forward to seeing more idol cosplay.
>Photoshoots
No photoshoots planned yet, but I'm part of 3 groups so I'm sure someone will end up hiring a photographer.
>>
>>9451135
15$ each night, Fri and Sat 11am-3pm

>>9451342
>tfw some of your favourite /cgl/ name/tripcode users are starting to go to Colossal

>Maui sands! I'm hoping it's not too far from the Kalahari.
They have a free shuttle service now that runs between the Kalahari and some of the overflow hotels so distance shouldn't matter too much. Here's the hours and such: http://colossalcon.com/location/shuttle-service
>>
>>9451406
>Favorite
Anon you're making me blush
Thank you for linking the shuttle service! I was a little worried about Maui being too far from the Kalahari for walking and heard from people who have attended in the past that there aren't ubers/lyfts out in Sandusky, so I wasn't sure what I was going to do for transport. Now I know!
>>
>>9451416
Walking is not an option! And don't rely on the shuttles if you need to be somewhere at a specific time. If you do, leave really early!
>>
>>9451416
I have heard so much about you, did you go to Katsu, if so I might have met you if you cosplayed idolmaster, otherwise if not I would love to meet/shoot with you as I am idol trash. Colossal is my "fun" con so I am so hype.
>>
>>9451447
Thanks so much for the advice, I'm sure it'll come in handy when I'm leaving for morning shoots or need to run back and change!

>>9451453
Oh yikes, I hope what you heard wasn't all bad, haha! I did go to Katsu, where I cosplayed Arisu Tachibana on Saturday and Mika Jougasaki on Sunday, both with groups. If we met at Katsu, I'd love to see you again because I love meeting idolm@ster fans!!
>>
>>9451458
>Mika Jougasaki
Were you in the CG group, the giant Cinderella Girls (the ballroom/OP 1) one? If so I know you IRL and feel bad not knowing you were a tripcode user.
>>
>>9451492
I think you're thinking of the Starry Sky Bright group we had on Saturday of the con! That was when I was Arisu, and Barri was our Mika!
>>
Who is this claudie person
>>
>>9451496
Oh! I know bari! I guess I will hopefully meet you at colossal!
>>
>>9451548
See you there~!
>>
Just hit me how close to con we actually are and how little I've done.

In other news, how much is even reasonable to ask for space in a Nomad room if you're only trying to get six people in for the full four days?
