A couple months out from Youmacon. What are your cosplay plans? Will the schedule come out before the week of the con?
>>
>>9988541
Without a doubt.
>>
I haven’t made as much progress as I would like, but I’m making some progress on Umbra from Warframe.
>>
>>9988541

Will this mark the return of Madthad?
>>
>>9988541
Wanted to finish a cosplay beforehand, but think I'll have to recycle due to work schedule. Kinda excited bout some of the guests this year tho
>>
>>9988541
>What are your cosplay plans?
Plan to cosplay pic related here. Not sure on what day tho. Guess it depends on which day has more interesting stuff to do. Sadly, I don't have the budget to stay for the whole weekend.

>Will the schedule come out before the week of the con?
It should be. Isn't it always released a week before the con or am I missing something here?

>>9989080
Looking good so far!
>>
Lol someone’s actually trying to get Momo invited, not sure if troll or mental invalid
>>
I'll be dressed as Vape Nation h3h3 again cause im lazy and dont feel like making another cosplay. Come up to me and tell me how bad it is lmao.

My dumb ass procrastinated way to long and forgot to pre order tickets. I can’t wait to be in line for hours. I’ll be a team skull grunt again.
>>
>Had plans for a Magical Girl Ore cosplay duo
>Cosplay partner made plans with a different group on the day I said I can do it
>In staffing hell the rest of the weekend and have to wear comfy jfash or cosplay

So I’ll be a lone Saki Uno on Friday, in kawaii weeb shit Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and rave shit at nighttime.

Hello, TO-san back at it again. the tournaments for Youmacon Battle Opera 2018 have been released. I'll have lots of additional information coming out soon. We've been hard at work to try and make this the best YBO yet

As is with every year, I am down to answer any questions that I can
>>
>>10001648
Every year I tell myself I won't do this again... and then I end up waiting in line for hours, yet again.
>>
The biggest pull for me was the huge 24hr game room. Now they're making it smaller and having it close every night? What are they even doing?
>>
>>10004569
What really? Now I'm glad Im planning to ghost this year.
>>
>>10004569
They didn't really have a choice. They were cramped for space at the ren center to begin with, and because of rules changing they were running into issues with loading in the equipment to the point where it's impossible. In order to keep it open 24 hrs in cobo the cost would require a huge increase in badge prices that people would definitely not accept. It sucks that it'll be closed for 8 hrs every night but was just not another option from what I heard
>>
>>10004569
>>10004581
AFAIK it's bigger this year though, and not smaller??
>>
Just made a TB order for this because I'm an impulsive idiot, can't wait to pay out the ass for that rush shipping.

>>10004582
I've heard the same thing, and that they're increasing the stage size for tournaments. I guess we'll see. As long as they have that nice dim lighting I'll be happy. I just hope that because it's no longer 24 hours, it's not jam-packed with smelly weebs (anymore than usual) trying to get their games in, but I'm not counting on it.
>>
>>10005897
Yeah it's basically bigger in that it has more arcade games and such but not more games total. So idk it might have more fighting game nerds whining that the game they're losing is also coincidentally "cheating" and just generally not being quiet about it
>>
Quick question

Does anyone remember off the top of their head did ypu get charged when you check in using card or when you check out
>>
My cos-plans are Lottie Person from Snotgirl, perhaps school outfit Nozomi Tojo (a bit less effort for time's sake), or Fenneko from Aggretsuko.
>>
>>10006259
To a hotel? They're going to ask for the full amount (-deposit if you had to put one done) when you check in.
>>
Any word on panels yet? I've heard emails going out, wondering what's made the list so far. It was the first year I put in to run one, just curious what already got approved.
>>
>>10006497
I thought they weren't going out until next week. I guess if they're going out now that's pretty impressive. Just shy of a months notice to the panelists instead of two weeks.
>>
I have been to youmacon the last four years but I have never worn a costume. What could be good for a 6' big dude with long hair to cosplay as?
>>
>>10006867

>>
>>9988541
I gotta admit, I'm more excited for this Youma than the past like four. Guest list has me pretty hype sans the furry crap. Think we'll get any other announcements last minute?
>>
>>10006497
Who the hell is in charge of panels? Are they aware that it's not ok to give panelists warning less than a month in advance? We have to make sure our schedules are free (I mean just fuck photoshoot scheduling right), decide if we're really going, get prize support purchased based on what gets approved, and practicing. Everything is written but there's so much more behind getting ready and I'm pretty sure the staff gives no shits about panelists as a whole. I can see why so many friends refuse to do this con, there's no respect.
>>
>>10008085
They most certainly don't. Pretty much everyone I've ever met who's done a panel for them has had a negative experience. Even thpugh they take so long to choose panels, it they don't seem to use that time vet panelists, either. Like seriously, if their panel is skill-based how hard is it to look up their website and make sure their work is halfway decent?
>>
>>10008085
>>10008467
They stated that panels are first come, first serve so I don't know why it takes so long to decide. I remember a couple years ago, they didn't get notice out til less than a week from con and there were tons of no-shows. I think the staffers pull that "Excuse us but we have lives other than youmacon" thing but also refuse to accept any offers of help.
>>
>>10008505
I'll never understand the justification behind 20,000+ attended cons running on volunteer staff. I'm paying you almost 100 fucking dollars and you're not paying people to do their jobs?? How is this a viable business model?
>>
>>10006049
From what I saw it looked like they were sacrificing both arcades and consoles to put more emphasis on the tournaments
>>
>>10008585
Hardly no anime cons in the entire US has paid full time staff. Youmacon might have 3 at most. Your $75 pass barely pays for overhead to have the con takes place at all. It costs hundreds of thousands to rent a venue, bring in the AV, and have shit tons of stuff around the con. You then have to pay contractors hundreds of thousands to put it all together because no one is going to do professional work for free. You then top it off with taxes up the ass.

AX, at even 125k, has under 20 paid staff to put that all together and over 3000 volunteers.

PAX when does the same shit of a couple dozen in charge of all the shows. They do pay volunteers mininum wage but then they're on their own for a hotel room. They have thousands who put up with that shit even when it's owned by a billion dollar corporation.

Piss off in not know how this shit works and be grateful that someone is bothering to do it for free.
>>
>>10009290
So we should be ok with paying for a service that doesn't work because no one is getting paid and it's not a priority for them? It's ridiculous to expect people to pay for an event where no one takes their job seriously. I know of 2 cons that either pay their staff a monthly wage or give gift cards at the end of the weekend and they don't pull in big attendance numbers. Youmacon is doing it wrong and should hire real employees who don't fuck it up every year.
>>
>>10008725
That sucks if you're not a tournament player. Also sucks it won't be open 24hrs since 4am is the best time to try things out without having to push through a crowd of smelly weebs.
>>10009290
>be grateful for this free shit sandwich
yeah go fuck yourself, there has to be a better way of running this event.
>>
>>10009304
What con pays monthly wages because I'll submit my resume to work there.
>>
>>10009290
So because they rent out a venue, they're allowed to screw over panelists and volunteers? Because that's what they're doing. There's absolutely, ABSOLUTELY no reason for panels to not be confirmed two fucking weeks before the con. It means Youma is, as it is every year, still late on putting together their schedule. And there's no reason for it, not when bigger and smaller cons alike can release the schedule a month in advance AND give the panelists, you know, the people who are giving their time to make up half of the con's programming, enough notice to actually put their panels together.

This is hardly a high standard to hold Youma to. The con isn't new, there's no reason that every single year they're doing all of this shit last minute. Was it last year or the year before where they didn't hand out schedules and booklets until Friday, so no one knew when or where any events or panels were? Or when they didn't print enough and ran out of them? Or when it was SO last minute that the schedule was printed on shitty computer paper with too small text, like someone had made it the night before (because they probably did)? Was that all the same year or has this been a pattern, I can't remember.
Regardless, the people in charge of programming and panels need a fire lit under their ass or to change everyone out completely. It's sad that I've just learned to expect this from my local con. I want better, I especially want better for how much they keep creeping up pass prices each year, and that's not wrong of me or anyone else.
>>
>>10009304
I mean, we have no idea who is taking from the books either. Considering their organization it'd be a shock if this wasn't happening.
>>
>>10009304
>>10009341
I don't know what cons anon is talking about but I'm guessing one is Collosal in Ohio? Buddy of mine works there and told me the leadership gets paid year round. You have a slim chance of actually getting to that level though, it's a very specific type of person who they let in.
>>
>>10009506
its almost like youmacon is staffed entirely by rejects who just want to thump their dicks and say "I MAEK THE CON!!!!1!" while not doing any actual work
>>
>>9988541
This is my first year and I have no cosplay.
>>
>>10010314
You don't need to cosplay if you don't want to, the only reason OP asked is because this is the cosplay board.
>>
>>10008085
Still no response. This con can suck shit.
>>
Apparently panels are slowly coming out tonight..
>>
>Panels finally approved two weeks before con
>Give over 200 panelists barely any notice to prep what makes up the majority of con programming
>"Tee hee updates coming soon, pinky pwomise~!!"

Shit's not cute, it's disorganized and disrespectful. If it really takes you this fucking long to approve panels, you need to start taking panel applications earlier. This isn't rocket science.
>>
>>10011414
Hopefully the complaining helped. We didn't actually get individual accepted or denied panels, just a gigantic list of all the approved panels and told to go find out if it was accepted or not. Real professional.
>>
>>10011435

Youmacon staff is an actual disaster and I'm getting REAL fucking tired of "Well we have to run the con like a business" when they want to shove shit down your throat like Kroze or Luminaire, but "We're all volunteers and we have REAL LIVES!!!" when they want to excuse dragging their fucking feet in accomplishing anything. Meanwhile they're all jerking off to how cool they are because some voice actor played cards against humanity with them in a green room.

I swear to god they find a way to manage to be worse every year.
>>
>>10011714
Oh God I remember having to sit through Kroze's band playing middle school talent show-level awkward music before Crush 40. Fucker literally bragged about writing music in less than an hour and read lyrics from his phone on stage
>>
>>10011740
I think I'd listen to Kroze any day instead of Jon St. John's bloated ego during opening ceremonies. Dude wears a fucking crown every other year. In terms of guests it seems like they're trying, but they've got hanger ons that are like parasites.
>>
>>10012267
i think i had heard that jsj was fucking one of their top people so they keep inviting him back for an easy payday
>>
>>10009651
I used to work for a con and I know for a fact there was a lot of taking from the books by individuals. So I wouldn't be surprised.

It sounds goofy but if you're brave try getting a room spot from the room and ride share group? If you vet people a bit you can end up meeting some really cool people who are still into going to cons, I've had some room randos turn out to be wonderful folks.

>>
How is Youma compared to like, ACen? I'm in the AA this year, and it's also my first time going, so I have no idea what to expect. The organization is so fucked so I'm a bit worried the rest of the con will be too.
>>
>>10015365
I hope your art is good anon, there's a lot of A++ canadian artists and others with highly rendered work. If you have great stuff you will do well, but if not, well.. I hope you're local. Dead serious.
>>
>>10015306
Wasn't there someone on here last year trying to claim that Youma ITSELF was alt-right? If I remember correctly they were a Shuto Con shill.
>>
>>10015891

Probably Big Stef herself
>>
>>10015306
>>10015891
I remember some retard on the boards claiming that but I never saw or heard anyone at the con claiming that. Youma is pretty tumblr-esq t.b.h.fama.lam
>>
>>10015891
Wasn't that because some security staffer was a "nazi" aka he giggled at a tweet from trump and some early 20's weeb claimed that he was literally laughing at the holocaust
>>
>>10004569

Due to,renovations at the rencen loading docks can not support bigger trucks which the game company needs to transport their stuff. As a bit of a last minute thing the moved it over to cobo which they could not find a larger room for the same price so not only is the room smaller but they can not staff it 24/7. Apparently they have been talking about moving it there for a while where they have a super large game room with more shit so they are also going to see how this goes for next year.
>>
>>10010092

Are you new? Every con is like that.
>>
>>10015891
>>10015991

Literally some girl was pissed she couldn't get in to a pannel without her badge so she claimed the guy who over heads security was a Trump supporter. Since liberals are retarded they all started to attack everyone involved with operations till they fired him even though it wasn't true.
>>
>>10016092
I mean, his Facebook posts and him arguing on every political post didn't do a lot to prove her otherwise, if that's how it happened. Not that I'm saying it's right or wrong, but fact is if you're publicly working for an event where the majority of the audience is getting younger and younger and definitely more liberal, it's sort of bound to happen eventually.
Obviously though the whole "Youma itself is alt-right" thing was overboard.
>>
Youmacon in a nutshell:
>Panels accepted two weeks before con
>Schedules finally available Sat of con
>Artist Alley ran by idiot who blames everyone but herself on all the problems
>"We're real people with full time jobs"
>Maid cafe run by someone who has no business running a maid cafe, maids always leave because the staff is an asshole and the way it's ran is insufficient and cringy
>AA head ignores emails until they're tagged several times on FB to answer

Good con
>>
>>10016172
Glad I'm not the only one that feels this way about the maid cafe. Was a maid one year, and A was super strange. She openly hates maid cafes because she feels they're sexist. So she basically feels like she's some hero for running a 'classy' cafe because most of the girls are wearing cosplay instead or something. She should just do a straight up cosplay cafe instead, it'd be a lot less cringy than people trying to make maid versions of Harley Quinn and shit.
>>
Any advice for meeting a gentle femdom here?
>>
>>10016261
That sucks, I've never been able to get in but I've heard nothing but bad things about it.
>>
>>10015456
I'm going to give a tentative yes?
This is only my first year doing cons, but I've been doing ridiculously well at the cons I've attended so far. Far exceeded all my expectations. From asking around at ACen I made well over 3x the average for everyone else. So I'm cautiously optimistic I guess? I'm coming from another midwest state, so I'm not terribly far but it's definitely a decent drive (~6h or so).
Any advice for the AA?

It's an anime con, not a sex fest. Go if you want to see some nerds in costumes and talk about anime.

Damn I wish they'd post the social media of the people doing panels. I get this wouldn't necessarily be applicable to fandom panels, but I think a lot of attendees would like the chance to check out the panelist's work before attending. I've been to some panels that ended up being run by people who were totally delusional about their abilities, thinking they were experts when they were clearly beginners still learning the basics about the skill or community they were presenting on...
>>
>>10019126
But then where's the risk?
>>
>>10019147
I just hate feeling like I spent a lot of money to go to con just to have my time wasted, and looking like a dick for bowing out mid-panel.
>>
>>10019126
Yeah I'm pretty sure Youma doesn't screen panelists at all. There's a 15 year old doing a panel about their experience as a Youtuber; they've been doing it since age 13. That's a panel a lot of people will walk out on.
>>
>>10019170

Panelist here, they ABSOLUTELY don't screen.

They will take anything so long as it isn't a character role-play panel.
>>
>>10019170
Seriously? Is it the social media panel on Saturday? That was one I was actually interested in. There's a twitch one on Friday, too...

>>10019180
That really sucks, I'm sorry. I feel like it ends up giving Youma panels as a whole a bad name. A lot of people no longer attend them because so many are disasters.
>>
I’m from out of state, going for the first time. It’s probably a mistake to do so since the venues look huge and complicated but I suppose I’ll figure it out.
>>
>>10019228
You figure them out pretty quickly just from wandering around them. The programs should have a map in them but I definitely recommend getting a people mover pass - they pay for themselves super quick

Saw they have a Terrace House photoshoot... how the fuck do you cosplay Terrace House and who is doing it?

>>10019170
Wow.
>>
>>10019196
I'm doing the social media one on Saturday. I work as a content specialist in real life but don't promote or want large followers so you've never heard of me. I explain that in the panel. I do this for a living.

That said, it's pretty basic stuff that I wanted to talk about because a lot of young cosplayers and people don't really understand what they're signing up for when they want to get popular online.

Disclaimer: this is technically my first panel, though I have helped run others.
>>
>>10019464
A Terrace House photoshoot? What. I don't think I see that on the schedule.

Gonna be my first year staying all three days, with a room, and awesome people, gonna get drunk and have so much fun. Every other time has been awkward or under weird circumstances but this time I took control. Also would people make fun of me and call me basic if I wore my kigurumi, are those lame now? Pls no bully. Also I wonder how long the line is going to be for buying badges VS picking them up.. my bf and I preordered ours but a friend is going to buy his. Last time I remember the lines were pretty equal, it's been a couple years

>>10018821
I'm 32 and I feel like an old man walking around. I've seen some guys a deal older than me doing some great cosplays but I still feel old. I didn't feel this way until a couple years ago when there was a panel that allowed drinking. The line for it was long and full of people my age or older but the way they were acting... I don't know, they were so excited about drinking out of these tiny cups, it felt like they were mentally still in high school going to their first drinking party.

Since there will be a Detroit: Become Human photoshoot, whats the over/under on cosplayers there.

Bonus 1: How many of them will actually be from the area

Bonus 2: What % will think they're clever by doing a cosplay from the game in Detroit.
>>
>>10019671
It sorta depends on what you mean by "the area." Like if you include most of Michigan and idk maybe Toledo, then probably a good chunk will be but maybe not a lot from within the actual city limits.

But yeah a large chunk are just going to be basically doing it at least partially because "HEY GEEEET IT? IM IN DETROIT AND IM FROM DETROIT: BECOME HUMAN!"
>>
>>10019671
I really wanted to play that game but I'm still a generation behind on consoles. I forgot all about it but it would be cool if someone does it.

Seems like he likes Kors K, I can count 3 references to him.

If you hear news about a Marriott strike in Detroit, note it does not apply to the rencen. The rencen is already unionized.

Are you ok my dude you seem upset
>>
>>10020210
I'd like to see their response to a "straight white men in gaming" panel
>>
>>10020272
Yeah a lot of that server is trans, crossdressers, crossplayers, or gay. There's also a very large /pol/ presence on the server.
>>
>>10020063
there can be more than one discord anon? no one has a monopoly on making cgl related discords
>>
>>10020272
this group formed after the trap discord disbanded.
as a result, there's a slightly stronger presence of crossdressing/trapshit than average but there's still a majority non-faggot cosplay group and there's at least a dozen of ours attending the youma meet so if you're wanting to meet people...
>>10020627
we sit slightly right of center in that we hold the radical opinion of not hating white men for existing. Ironic of you to call the group trannies and gays and rightwingers in the same sentence, throw a few more buzzwords at the wall and see what sticks.
>>
>>10020725
no one said rightwingers, trannies, or even mentioned white men until you did.
your reaction tells me all I need to about the "slightly right of center" you're talking about.
>>
>>10020627
>>10020727
see above
>>
>>10020729
where in the post did I say "trannies"? where did I mention "rightwingers"?
I said trans, and /pol/, you implied hate on my part towards trans people and that /pol/ is all right wing people.

You should stretch first before you reach that far anon.
>>
>>10020733
youre boring, and so is your dead 5 person discord.

if you want a real one with more than 4 users and dont care for pretty drama like anon is causing, you can join the second one linked.We have somewhere from 10-20 veteran congoers attending and we are very fun people.
>>
>>10020627
I used to be part of that midwest congoer disord, and honestly the /pol/ shit is why I dipped.

>>10020725
>>we sit slightly right of center in that we hold the radical opinion of not hating white men for existing.
That's a pretty good example of the /pol/ shit there. (also a whole lot of /k/, but that's not a big deal) Shame because it was a pretty decent cosplay advice and just regular chatting server for a while.
>>
The guests this year seem pretty good, I’m excited. Still kinda bummed about the news on the arcade not being 24 hours.
>>
>>9989081
I'll only show if if I can find people to go with.
It might not be a good idea to go this year since I just got out and I don't want to run into people that will call me out in public.
But next year for sure.

Who to look for: Blue Aquabat pic related.

Thurs: Super cool meet up for cool kids who pregred and came on Thursday. Time: Who knows.

Friday: 7pm Pizza hang out at volt bar. Going to try and get big confernce table in left corner so I'll probably show up earlier to try and snag it. Then once people start to show up we will get pizza.

Saturday 5pm: Depending on turnout and interest from everyone, we will do an early dinner at Granite City Food & Brewery located in Tower 100 Level 1 under the resveration of "Moot". Afterwords (or if dinner gets canceled) we will meet up again at the conference table by the Volt bar around 7pm and go from there as to what drunken activities everyone wants to do.

Sunday: 2pm Ihop hang over good bye brunch.

There is an IHOP at the Millender Center, which is the building across the streat from the rencen. The building is connected to the walk way located to the left of the second floor of the rencen where the people mover station is. Dpendon on how many people are interested, I may resever a table already under the name "Moot". Otherwise I will be waiting at about 2pm for whoever wants to show up.

MONDAY

I swear to god Youmacon just give away badges like candy with the amount of trash they have this year.
>>

Yeah they do give away badges. I sometimes wish I would do a panel just to put something good on the schedule but then I remember I have shit taste and it would just be me explaining how the story of Love Live parallels Metal Gear Solid.

I absolutely love the "your favorite video game sucks" panels every year. They are super funny and can actually articulate why a game is bad instead of just calling out /v/ memes, and for the most part they ignore troll answers.
Ill be going to mystery science theater and to the "how to be popular" panel because someone in this thread said they are hosting it.

The only others are the Nintendo power and whose line panels. Nothing else really tickles my pickle

I think we should all agree to do a panel next year for free badges.

"How shitposting became a form of art."
Just scroll through threads, shitpost, and get free badges. It's about the same quality as several other panels that exist.

>>10023097
Lol you have to get over four and a half hours of panels approved if you want a completely free badge. Less than that and it's a discount.

Oh man, I know one of the people putting this on. She invited me to attend, but I'm not sure what I'd get out of it as a non-black person. To be fair, she does get a shit ton of harassment if she does a character that isn't black. I've seen some of the messages, and holy shit racism is alive and well.

A couple girls submitted a panel of the same name and description as a panel some lolitas had be putting on at youmacon for years. Was not an accident, as they had attended the panel previous years. The copy cat panel got accepted. Original panelists were not pleased. Youmacon doubled down when contacted about the panel jacking. Drama insued.
>>
>>10024082
A couple huge itas running an Intro to Lolita panel. It was incredible.
>>
>>10024082
That's amazing lmao. Of course Youma doubled down
>>
>>10024082
The guy's PowerPoint was pretty decent for people that weren't experts but the girls in the back were noticeably distressed by his inaccuracies. The drama was simply at the end of the panel when the girls in the back got up and handled out their cards stating to ask them about "real Lolita".

>>
>>10024452
Can you try a different pharmacy? That's way too long to wait for a prescription to be filled. I've never not had a prescription filled the same day I placed it. I think you should call them immediately to cancel it and try somewhere else! Could probably even find a pharmacy near the Ren Cen and pick it up during the con.

So it says the Friday pre-reg line starts at 11 and the at-the-door purchase line starts at 12. Some of us have to be in both lines, how early do people start lining up? Should we just show up at 10:30 or is that too early?

I'm going to try to be at the line up for at the door purchase by 8 or 9am. Earlier the better, usually. Pre registration line goes super quick.
>>
>>10024452
try asking your pharmacy for an "emergency refill." Tell them you're going out of town for the weekend and just need like 4 pills. Most pharmacies will do this especially if it's something like Paxil. Also hello med-buddy!
>>
>>10024618

Good and bad news.

Bad news is the large conference tables are gone and the area is blocked off for,construction.

Good news is I got a large table at the volt bar. It's one of the tables with the tall, blue booths right when you walk in to the left.

Meet up is still on for 7pm so look for the guy dressed as the blue Aquabat as in >>10021760. We already have people here so come join!!!
>>
Youmacon will never be organized. Will never let panelists know more than a month in advance. AA organization will never be crazy. Maid Cafe will never be good (as it's overseen by AA head and will allow no good changes), DHs and co-con-chairs are long time friends of runner. Pretty much every department has been in some way dipping into the pockets of the convention, con would rather have friends then be profitable.
Announces guests after pre-reg is closed CONSISTENTLY, even though that's a big pull for people? But why start anything in advance, right?
RenCen likely didn't think Youmacon would last this long when signing contract, so while not hostile, not necessarily accommodating, since they know their hotel will book up from the con regardless of where it is without the perks they gave originally.
Guest Relations basically just parties with guests, makes sure they're inebriated, often when working.
It's not going to change.

Anyone at volt? Wanna drink with a big crowd?

Depends on the next panel I'm going to, and if there's any totally righteous babes

>>10025240
Dump him
I’m sorry you have to go through that. He sounds awful

Come to Volt. Corner of the bar we are looking to run this bar and party
>>
>>10025568
Corner area. We got glowsticks and drinks

I was just at the taco bell in Southfield and overheard some black guy on the phone talking about how he was on his way to Youmacon.

Almost hooked up with the aquabats dude a couple years back but his wiener is like 3in

New thread soon might be good.

What should I expect from the Nintendo 18+ photoshoot? I know what cosplays I'll see, not what I'm asking
>>
>>10025720
A bunch of horny bastards and like 3 chicks in various peach crown outfits
>>
>In larme this morning, not getting into cosplay until later
>Getting treated so much better by hotel staff and security guards

Feels nice, but it almost makes me not want to put on cosplay later.
>>
Any gulls want to be my date to the maid cafe at 1:30 if my boyfriend doesn’t get his ass over here? I already bought 2 tickets, might as well use them.
>>
my gf is there cosplaying as Rachel from AOD, tell her she's cute please
>>
>>10025793
I would if I was attractive, in cosplay, or a girl in the first place
Otherwise I ain't got shit going on until 3
>>
Usually “be there by 1:30” means that he LEAVES at 1:35-1:40, but he’s not pulling his usual bs and might actually get here.

Thank you anyway, >>10025800. Maybe next time, haha.
>>
How much are Saturday passes? I went yesterday with my friend and he paid for my Friday pass.
>>
>>10025822
Saturday only should be 50 bucks
>>
>>10025827
Cons aren't cheap at all are they. Yesterday was the first time I went to one.
>>
>>10025830
Yeah they are pretty damn expensive
>>
>>10025830
Depends on what you expect out of them and how early in advance you pay for them. I might not come back next year, or at least not pay for a badge
>>
>>10025822
They are 40. I only wanted to go Saturday but my gf pressured me into going last night so bought a 70 dollar pass then we ended up not going anywhere that required a pass. Fml
>>
My bf's friend kept me up all night with his snoring and is acting like a fucking asshole so I ditched them both, finally having fun but feel annoyed I even invited his ass
>>
Reminder Granit City dinner meet up at 5pm. We had a good turnout last night so I'm,gonna get table for at lest 10 people under the name moot.

Change of plan. My brother asked me if I wanted to go with him and his friends. So I might show up on sunday.
>>
Just got table. Meet up has started but we will wait a bit.
>>
>>10025930

Also table,under the name,of moot,if you are coming late.
>>
>>10025930
Why 5pm for meet up ? That’s super early if you guys do something later I can swing by
>>
>>10025985

Early dinner cause at 7 everyone is going to start drinking.
>>
7:15 and the line to get onto the masquerade hasn't moved.
>>
I haven't got shit to do until after 9 and the game room smells like sweat ass, what's up with you dudes
>>
>>10026056
Is this your first convention?
>>
>>10026056
Just been people watching and watching gurren lagann, not many good panels for a while
>>
Is Mad Thadd here? First day out, what a way to live.
>>
>>10026066
No, been going for 5 or 6? years to this one and have been to others in atlanta

>>10025991
Any more meets planned tonight ?

>>10026085
I might show up tomorrow. My brother wants me to hang out with his friends there.
>>

>>10026092

Not yet. Dinner went late. Thinking maybe meet up at midnight. Will keep posted. Bring women.
>>

Dude you really need women that bad?

Anyone /cgl/ want to meet up tomorrow? I know I'll at least do the 11:00 par para dance thing. I can come earlier. Let me know.
>>
This is my evening. Planning on going to Coldstone with friends, going to the Persona midnight shoot, and chilling at the Rencen. Might check out the rave but I heard the music was awful last night. Any good nighttime panel recommendations?
>>
>>10026236

Yup

The street fighter panel was a fucking joke. Guy was literally just reading off the timeline from the 30th anniversary collection.
>>
Meet up at the volt, gonna head to panel in an hour. Look for Travis Touchdown and a brown jacket.
>>
Anyone going to why your waifu is trash? Heard that's supposed to be a good one

Hello anyone out ? Look to chill and have a drink

Holy shit did this fuck really tell the front desk that a drunk guy said something mean about someone? After detailing his little retort which I’m sure he thinks was like a badass anime moment lol

Ok now I understand

Cutest girl at Youmacon
>>
Last night didn’t feel like Saturday night of Youmacon. The Wintergarden was dead, the rave was more than halfway empty, the floors on the Rencen weren’t crowded, there was no line for the elevators. Where tf was everyone, actually sleeping?
>>
>>10026468
I overheard that the rave had a mass drop out because of how bad the music was.
>>
>>10026477
>>10026468
What kind of music is normally played there vs what people actually wants?
>>
>>10026477
The rave had plenty of people compared to last year at a given hour. It wasn't until 2am (3am w/o DST) that the crowd died down. There were at lot more females this year that stayed at the rave. I do agree that the music was not to the Youmacon liking since it was drum and bass compared to chiptunes/nerd electronic. Overall I think the rave was successful if you don't use the anime beach party DJs as your reference point.
>>
It was my friends first time here and someone broke in our room and stole his Switch. Worst Youmacon ever. If the thief is ITT hope you fucking choke
>>
>>10026510
I’m sorry for the both of you, anon. How can you break into a hotel room? Did you have people over? A party?
>>
>>10026510
>>10026512
You do realize that you're in Detroit so leaving expensive items in your room is a bad idea when any hotel staff member can unlock your room?
>>
>>10026512
We had no people over and had our room keys the whole time. We think the door might been left ajar or a staff member did it or maybe when we were drunk and left for the rave? We filed a report but outlook isn't good. Feels bad man
>>
>>10026513
Never had an issue at any previous years bringing my electronics, just bad luck
>>
>>10026441
Super cute.

No joke, I legitimately really want to attend this panel. Please submit it for next year senpai. or at least give me a quick rundown.
>>
This was the first con that I went too and I enjoyed it. Bought five canvas posters of various anime and a mouse pad of saber, aIso caught some pretty cool panels by a guy named Paul. I'll probably attend next year too, but now I'm thinking of flying out to other big cons. I tried the sticky post, but that's just cosplay tutorial help. I also tried looking up anime conventions, and I found this link:

https://animecons.com/events/

But there's so many of them on the list, I have no idea how good they are, and I'm only interested in the larger ones right now. Is there some kind of filtered list of conventions by population?
>>
>>10026594
If you're in Michigan, migeekscene usually lists conventions big and small in the Midwest. In terms of cons at the level of Youmacon, Collosal Con is the place to be especially if you can get into the Kalahari.
>>
>>10026493

It's not the style persay, but the DJs where,complete trash and have no idea how set up a song.
>>
>>10026468

I think a big part too is that the main entrance to the con hall was closed and no one knows how to get up aside from the elevators which where blocked for hotel guests. Stairs on the bottom level,needed a GM staff key so going up was impossible to go up.
>>
Anyone up for a farewell meetup tonight at the Ihop by the rencen?
>>
This was a 3/10 disaster, if you weren’t making your own fun you probably had a shit time. The schedule is the worst fucking thing I’ve ever seen, and it’s amazing they managed to do worse than last year.
>>
>>10026695
IRL marioparty was a great shitshow last year and it wasn't here this year. Whoever organizes anything in Rencen need to be gassed because they shove panels with large expected audiences in those tiny ass rooms on floor 5 and while stuff like steven universe autism panel have a turnout of like 10 people.
>>
>>10025523
Yeah first time I volunteered I did about a half hour of work (set up a panel room) then they said the same thing, been doing it for years
>>
Should we start a new thread? I’d love to hear about people’s good and bad con experiences but I think this one is on autosage
>>
>>10026717
Supposedly the Mario party panel got canned because there was a sexual harassment issue last year
>>
>>10026755
make it, i'd have a lot to say

Sorry, only found your favorite anime in there.
See? I can be unoriginal too.

>>10026717
Agreed, they should know better than to put a hentai games panel in a small room like that. It was so overstuffed.

Anybody from the metro Detroit area want to be friends so we can hit up next years together?
I went today with my brother and he is boring as hell.
He wanted to stay in the game room, then wanted to leave when it closed.
From Southfield by the way.

Were you at the meetup

>>10027056
Where the hell was the meetup anyways? I wanted to see how pathetic cgl really was

There were like 4 different meetups throughout the convention. Most of the anon who showed up don't really post on /cgl/ though.

>>10027162

There are literally like, 20 posts in the thread about the meet up. IN fact here is the orignal one >>10021760

Why do faggots have to ruin fun things and fill it with stuff like "toxic masculinity in gaming" and 3+ steven universe panels?
>>
>>10027315
>"toxic masculinity in gaming"
If that panel comes back next year, I'm really tempted to show up as like a vial of poison and talk like a supervillain as "THE TOXIC MALE"
>>
>>10027355
I mean, toxic masculinity doesn't refer to people it refers to a mindset that effects everyone. You'd be better off going with a sign that says "SUPPORTER OF TOXIC MASCULINITY" so you don't get ridiculed.
>>
>>10027355

Not only was it a shitty panel (yes I went and it was awful). but the host also started by asking everyone to give the panel 5 stars on the app and virtue signaled on the youmacon groups and tumble to get people to 5 star her because people where already voting it 1 star before it even went live and it turns out you don't actually need to be attending the con to rate panels.
>>
>>10027395
I didn't know Dennis Reynolds ran a panel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7WYFLlxGbA

What'd everyone think about Youmacon moving the Fortnite Room ft Fortnite to cobo instead of the Ren Cen? I mean it sucked that I couldn't play Fortnite at 4am but at least it had a wide variety of Fortnite stations to play Fortnite on
>>
>>10027449
I'm glad I can go to an anime convention and pay money to play Fortnite there!
>>
>>10027449
what the fuck are you even talking about you stupid faggot?
>>
>>10027472

Literally every single console was Fortnite and no other games where loaded. Game room in general sucked a shit ton this year and this is besides the point that it wasn't open 24/7.

>No PC gaming.
>No arcade cabinets.
>No pin ball.
>No switch games.

I checked her post on facebook. Not as bad as I expected but I mean I will also say the fact that the panelist is one of those bitches who uses her middle name as a last name is a red flag in its own right

Unfortunately the rooms for that weekend sell out instantly from what I hear.

Colossal East might be better since it's more out of the way, but I've never been to that one and have only been to the normal Colossal once.
>>
>>10027652
Colossal in Sandusky this year had a lottery to even get a room from years of people wasting their entire saturday waiting in line for a room for the next year
>>
>>10027662
I've heard it was a shitshow.

Looks like the entire resort is booked for that weekend in general too. After going for one day last year I do want to stay the whole weekend on-site just to experience the magical place of debauchery that I hear happens.

Already drawing up plans for 5 panels involving weed and cosplay/anime
>>
>>10028755
not if I get my Craft Beer Anime Pairings panels off the ground before you
>>
>>10028755
>>10028867

We all know that those will all be rejected in favor of yet another western cartoon fan panel that the moron who does panels likes.

Why have something unique for the adult crowd when you can just have steven universe, but with his dick out.
>>
>>10028749
>>10028755
2019 will be the year RenCen dumps Youmacon in order to avoid the onslaught of weed stank
>>
>>10029324
There most likely won't be dispensaries licensed until 2020 so it might not happen until the year after for what its worth

I'm still surprised they haven't been forced entirely into Cobo though.
>>
>>10029069
good point, Ill make a steven universe/weed panel (18+ cause that's important to draw in the crowd) and another about cosplaying steven universe with weed
>>
>>10029375
There you go!

Please enjoy your 4 free badges.
>>
>>10029069
I might actually do a craft beer/anime pairing panel as soon as I figure out how to do something that isn't "NARUTO IS SHIT THAT'S WHY I PAIR IT WITH BUD LIGHT" for an hour
>>
>>10030031
>I watch Darker Than Black while drinking a Russian Imperial Stout.
>>
>>10030031

Okay, I do hella hella panels for a fuckload of cons.

That is a good ass idea and you should do it.
>>
>>10030032
>>10030113
Might bring in a friend who's a certified Cicerone and maybe one of the brewers from Batch Brewing to the panel. Only thing is I also have to figure out if I can make it a think where people can, you know, actually try the beers I'm talking about instead of just listening me talking about my drinking problems
>>
>>10030146
Entirely depends if the con organizers would be able to get proper security checking for IDs at the door and if you/your friends wanted to spend the $$$ on the beers.

Honestly I could see it being a really fun panel.
>>
>>10030153
I could always try to get Batch Brewing, or if I'm desperate Atwater, to bankroll part of it. If not, it might just turn into "thanks for coming to the panel, join me at Hopcat later to try out all these"
>>
>>10030146

So Penguicon will absolutely let you host it. It's not an anime con, but they do anime content, and those fuckers know how to party.
>>
>>10030236
I've always wanted to go to Penguicon but the whole "HERES A PANEL ON PAGAN BISEXUAL GENDERQUEER NORSE LINUX" always scares me away
>>
>>10031542
So like, I can get how that would be weird as shit, but the Penguicon crowd is way the fuck more chill about it than you'd think, if you wanna go, cool, if not, no one is gonna dox you.

I skip pretty much all the panels and just day-drink, then we do a room party at night.

If anything, come check it out and look around, there are very few areas where they get anal about badges (mostly the free food and beer room) if you dig it, stick around, if it's not for you, all it cost you was gas.

But I can tell you I was 100% in your shoes a few years ago with like, how aggressively horny that con's reputation was, but I just went and checked it out, people were pretty cool. I like it.

Also there is free beer and food with your badge, and an entire floor of just ridiculous room parties.
