I've been going to cons for years, but since I live in Seattle I've never traveled for a convention before. This'll be my first time doing so - just made hotel reservations for me and my friends and looking forward to it!

>> No.10007509

No it’s in their control. Cons should be getting guests months ahead of the event and as soon as the contract is signed they can announce. Whether the late timing is on them not announcing promptly or getting guests last minute it’s on them.

>> No.10009601

If the convention center’s parking lot is full there’s a parking lot right under the insterstate bridges that’s available people seem to forget about. That has about 30 additional spots give or take. In my experience it can fill fast and you may wind up parking at Lloyd Center and MAXing your way down to con.

Try Airbnb? I'm paying $60/ night for a private room a mile from the con center. Get an instant book superhost or someone who gives their guests a lot of space if you feel self conscious about being a weeb, though no one will really care. Even if you have to go farther out, Portland is pretty accessible and you can put the money you save on a hotel towards ride-sharing if you can't or don't want to take the max or streetcar or bus.

>> No.10023552

The lolita fashion show would have been nicer if they’d just figure out the lighting one of these years, never include strobe lights again, and the models didn’t walk past their markers. But to be fair they basically sacrificed most of their convention time to be in the show. KimuraU was incredibly energetic and obviously wanted her models to be as well (can you tell my favorite segment?). I heard the other fashion show was canceled. The tea party has mixed reviews but wasn’t as expected and disappointing.

the lighting for the fashion show sucked ass. the whole thing had a bad pink/red tint and it was way too dark to see anything.

i agree. was it worth the price i paid? i definitely don't think so, but the people at my table were really nice and i had a good time talking with them. and kimura u was so sweet. i think overall for me personally, the good outweighed the bad, but if i go again next year there's no way i would drop the money on a higher tier.
