Keep looking. It's about that time where people begin dropping. Best of luck, anon.

Where does one look? FB or discord or what? Sorry I have never not just booked a room at a con a month in advance.

I got my room from the booking site. I've been checking 3 times a day every day for the past month. All luck

>> No.10144764

For some reason I thought if rooms got dropped the Kalahari staff was going to be reverting to the weird lottery system to sell them out. Was that only during the active booking period? Does that mean if we just keep calling we might get lucky buying up dropped rooms?

>> No.10144832

Pretty much what you have to do. Just keep calling.

Either that or check some of the ride and room share groups on fb. Typically people around now will start posting that spots opened up in their rooms. Sometimes people will mention if they're dropping, and are looking to sell it to someone else.

How awful is it to stay at the Great Wolf Lodge?

>> No.10145874

Dropped rooms are removed from the convention block and no longer have the con rate.

Depends on how highly you value staying at the Kalahari. It's a good alternative, in my opinion. Be mindful of when the shuttle stops running.

>> No.10145876

Awesome thanks! My group will keep our fingers crossed for getting lucky with a room. It's fine if it's not convention rate - it's mostly the distance that we're after and the pool passes.

Nah, I just started cosplaying him this year.

>> No.10146298

Agreed. Plus everyone in our group has really different sleeping schedules, so staying off-site for a convention is difficult to coordinate. I'm gonna keep checking for a dropped Kalahari room since it'd make things so much easier regarding sleeping, drinking, and not having to arrange a driver. (plus waterpark passes!) Thankfully I was able to snag the last room at the Comfort Inn a mile away, so we won't be far away if worst comes to worst. Good luck to you all too!

>> No.10147027

A friend who doesn't drink is comfortable with driving in each day from Toledo so that's what I'll probably end up doing.

I'm one of the most extroverted people out there & the one time I went to a con alone was a nightmare. But I'm also not a die hard fan of any particular anime - at least not enough to talk to a stranger about it. That's where you could make a connection & find a group of like-minded people to pal around with!

On Friday you could get a lay of the land, explore the dealers room, go to the panels that YOU want to go to & then try to strike up conversations with people who like the same stuff as you. Worst comes to worst, you blew a few dollars. Best case scenario, you found a group of new friends & your entire weekend experience will be made better.

I say do it!

Wasn’t someone point blanking photographers last year asking them “why they were racist b/c they didn’t shoot enough black people” and expecting people to actually respond to that with anything other than “get out of my face!”
Do they really think this kind of temper tantrums and public attempts at humiliation are actually going to work instead of deepening the divide? I saw an activist earlier this year who said “Dr. King is dead, and so are his methods.” I’m sorry but MLK actually got shit done, you just scream at people and expect that it will work.

Jesus this situation is cringy from all directions.

I do think the original panelist should have waited to see what other diversity panels existed before talking about being silenced. I see a few diversity panels at each big convention, and although I've never gone myself, public opinion seems to be that they're a positive place to show cosplayers that don't always get a chance to shine and to talk about problems unique to that particular community. I think they have a place at an anime convention, since "nerd culture" and its associated events still isn't always the most inviting place for all people. If Colossal is hosting a few diversity panels like they said they were, it's not so much a case of silencing minorities as it is "not being able to fit several of the same type of panel in a limited space". Someone's gotta lose in that type of competition.

That being said, Colossalcon's first response was dumb as hell from a professional standpoint. Old meme about a dead convention, plus the implication that social issues don't have a place for discussion there. Not a good look for people who are part of those minority groups, who can't always just "turn off" their problems and party for a weekend. It also kind of lent some power to the anti-SJW types, as evidenced in the comments in that post.

Their apology seemed thoughtful and well-worded though. By that time the focus had shifted from "should this one panel be allowed" to "how welcoming is the convention going to be to those of color/LGBT/other minorities?" I think that's why the apology was warranted, and they seemed to be honestly looking for ways to reassure everyone that they were welcome without harassment or discrimination. I saw it as more of an attempt to de-escalate rather than bend over for the SJW side, but it seems comments had to be locked anyway. A big cringy mess all around, like I said.

>> No.10155779

Wasted digits. Exaggerated bullshit “minority issues” aren’t so bad they can’t be turned off for a weekend.

>> No.10155785


Difference of opinion, I guess. Since those issues that they want to discuss directly relate to the cosplay and anime community, it makes sense to push for a space at an anime convention for them. I also don't see them as exaggerated, but again that's just my own view. Point I'm trying to make is, if there's room in the schedule, the diversity panels have just cause to be there, but if there's a lot of diversity panels competing for the same schedule, some have to lose, and she really jumped the gun on implying her panel rejection was racially motivated. It caused the issue to evolve into a much bigger discussion we see currently playing out.

(Sorry for all the wordiness, I just have a strong interest in the intersection of social media/nerd culture/political issues, so I like seeing and participating in these kinds of discussions.)

>> No.10155803

The people saying they are never coming back because of this, but still demanding an apology, why? Either you are too sensitive to attend the con and good riddance or you were just a lobby conner who wasn't buying a ticket anyway.

PS, other event sales matter, not buying a ticket but still showing up dropping money at the Kalahari isn't "boycotting" shit.

>> No.10155810 [DELETED] 

Yeah, the girl that got her panel waitlisted just made the original post, the friend of hers who originally shared it in the group is the same one who was complaining about photographers last year.

I don't get why people keep bringing that up in the comments either, like it's Colossal's fault. There are definitely photogs who purposely ignore or are completely inexperiened with shooting black cosplayers, I don't doubt that.

But to say that means the con has a history of racism because they "refuse to deal with it"? What do you want to them to do? You want con ops to go up to the photographer who hasn't taken your picture yet and make them? I just don't understand.

They already removed the guy who made the Dashcon comment from his spot, I don't really get what else people want. I wish people were genuinely going to stop attending so there might be a bit more elbow room at this goddamn con, but let's be realistic. They're not going to stop coming.

Yeah, the girl that got her panel waitlisted just made the original post, the friend of hers who originally shared it in the group is the same one who was complaining about photographers last year.

The panel runners didn't even wait for a response to the email, they sent the email and immediately took it to Twitter. That was wrong.

The social media person acted unprofessional and compared them to ball pit pissing SuperWhoLocks. That was wrong.

Colossalcon reacted to outlash by firing the person who made the comment and issuing an apology and an olive branch to make things right. That was good.


Everyone's fighting, I'm out groups for East as well because everyone's like "Oh fuck that!!!!" well after an apology was issued, it's a fucking mess. Also, if you go to Colossalcon for the though provoking panels, you probably also watch porn for the riveting plot. Yeah, PR acted wrong but they're right that it is a "party con." The response should have been "Hey, waitlist is not a rejection, you're probably gonna get it if someone drops, also there's 8 other people who submitted the same fucking panel". Only, you know, more articular and without dropping the F-word.

Well said, I agree with pretty much all of that.
Personally, one thing I'd add to the "that was wrong/bad" list was it took Colossal like 3 posts to get to a full, proper apology with some transparency on their action ("firing" the person who made those posts).
Colossal taking way too long to properly address shit on social media is nothing new though. I mean, it took them like 3 or 4 FUCKING MONTHS to formerly address what happened on the last day of Colossal East.
And when they did it was "Kalahari management is so sorry!". So sorry that they're "going to discuss" stopping cosplay & photography at the water park in the early afternoon again this year, meaning Kalahari management basically approved of what happened last year.
And a bunch of stupid fucking lemmings in the FB group actually 'liked' that post.

Because the convention itself had anything to do with the decisions made by the venue staff. Why would the convention ask the kalahari staff to listen to some screaming, paranoid soccer mom?

It's a different venue, different manager, like those people probably didn't grasp it. There might have been a lot of going back and forth to get anywhere.

The whole thing should have ended before it began. Someone presents the idea for a panel - the panel schedule is full, so they should agree to put them on the wait list, agree to let them know if/when space opens up & even extend a cordial "thank you" for bringing the idea forward & wishing to spread more light on an important issue. That fixes any weird blowback they would have gotten.

Done. That's it. Any additional "you have room for hentai but not for us" will look childish on behalf of the panel host. Keep it as simple & civil as possible. Don't leave loose threads for people to pull & go crazy over.

Colossalcon has an entire convention to run. This person only has their panel & social media presence to worry about.

The chair of any con can only do so much. There is quite a lot of work that is done by others under the convention employ. The chair needs to trust those below them to do their individual jobs with humility and grace.

This is a whole issue that should have never happened. The people/person who made the original posts should have let Colossalcon reply to their email first and handled it over email. Them bringing it to a group and essentially blasting the con was uncalled for. Waitlisted does not always equal rejection. The con staff is a fucking mess, this is a known fact. The staff member who commented was unprofessional and needs to be replaced(I don’t know if they have truly been fired or not). It created drama that didn’t need to be there. The people who keep demanding to know what diversity panels are on the schedule need to calm the fuck down. The schedule isn’t finalized and out yet. One panel being wait listed doesn’t mean shit about the final schedule.
Yeah Colossalcon is a party con, but I don’t think it’s bad to have panels about social issues within the community there. I think it’s a good thing. They just blew the entire thing out of proportion and it’s all a mess now.

Also I know it's probably earlier than we usually plan but is anyone interested in a cgl meetup? It's been a few years since I've met up with you guys.

It's definitely tougher than it used to be. A couple years ago they were making people line up Sunday of the con for hours at a time (outside too, there were a lot of sunburn complaints) for even a chance. And ofc this year they did the lottery. I don't know their attendance numbers but I know lots of people with no luck. Getting a single spot in a room is easy enough since everyone wants to offset the cost, but as a group it's rough. Went to East for the first time last year though and was able to book no problem, I miss that.

They grew enough to get to the kalihari would out the cosfamous. They don't get credit for getting them there.

But >>10158030 is correct there are basically two colossalcons happening at the same time. >>10158040 is also correct in so far that the cosfamous are there whole image. Where I have to disagree is there is difference in being deferential and and tripping over yourself for the cosfamous.

Assuming you meant "The grew enough to get to the KALAHARI WITHOUT THE COSFAMOUS"

Not really. Been going to this con since the first when it was a tiny half-day, cosplay and get in for free shindig.

When the con moved to the Kalahari, it was around 3-4k, 5k at tops. Ohayocon at this time was larger, maybe around 10-12k. It was on the level of small con.

The event space wasn't even that large, so it was likely a lot less costly to host it there.

People didn't even know about the con until Ackson started posting videos and gradually the attendance started to increase until maybe 2014, 2015 when room booking started to become an issue. Don't remember exact year but it definitely wasn't the case in 2009 when the con was first at this venue.

>> No.10158199

Yep, this exactly. My first Colossal was back in 2012 and even then attendance wasn't anything like it is now.
Booking was no issue, there was plenty of elbow room on the floor, they weren't charging out the ass for waterpark tickets.

Ackson and JNig going a couple years in a row brought in a lot of publicity, for better or for worse, and Colossal's cashing in on it.
I wish the numbers would split a little more between Prime, East and Daishocon but it's not looking that way.

>> No.10158311

East last year was starting to feel like Colossal maybe 2012, 2013, just starting to get the party con feel. The first year felt identical to the first year Colossal went to the Kalahari.

I imagine once the convention space is done expanding and especially South in Texas starts, some of the draw might die down.

Problem with East is that early September in the Poconos is a little too chilly for the outdoor waterpark. No idea what time of year South will be.

The villas were not a part of the lottery system (not an option on the form), nor were they available for non-lottery booking. Before the lottery I called the con to ask when the villas would be available for booking (they were publicly available last time I checked a few years ago). The phone rep to me that they were part of Colossalcon's block and could not be booked.

Sean was also showing his ass in a Katsu thread a while back, and confirmed that the con gives them booking privileges for two villas every year in exchange for bringing in "pro" media coverage. I will be shocked if this didn't happen again this year.

East has been decent, but people should be aware that it's likely going to become essentially a 2-day con this year. They already said they're considering ending cosplay and photography at the water park in the early afternoon on Sunday. And I'm sure "considering" means the Kalahari will TELL them when it's gonna be over (probably around noontime).
I say this makes it a 2-day con because let's face it, no one gives a fuck about the convention itself.

It's okay but everything costs about twice what its worth, since it's a resort. The food is on par with what you'd get at like buffalo wild wings or a chain place like that. The desserts in the little cafe off the lobby are pretty good.

>> No.10164138

Ivory Coast is about on par as far as cost and contents with most chain restaurants like Friday's. Maybe a little pricier but I don't mind the cost. Heard some complaints when it came to food allergies especially during a busy weekend.

B-lux is new for this year and the Pocono location's was pretty good. But it's standard burger, fries, shakes, etc.

They took out the more expensive sit down regular dining resturant. The only really pricey option is the buffet.

Otherwise there's the marketplaces and other little stands throughout including in the waterpark that serve pizza. DESU I rarely eat at those but I might get a small treat at the bakery or candy/ice cream place while I'm there.

Work is keeping me busy so i can only do Colossalcon on Saturday. Although I don’t think the charge blade is going to sit properly in the car.

I personally don’t fucking bother with the Kalahari anymore because both the staff and how it’s booked in general is terrible. Like imagine having money to throw at people for a room, but the people in every room are so anal or so fucking shady, it makes it retarded to even bother trying.

So I’m going to be level with you here. About two years ago, I had some booking drama with a friend, where I had too many people in, and the person booking miscommunicated with me. I’ll admit it was my fault, but that’s just the start of it. We room swap with this Dalek cosplaying asshole who promised us a suite, but room stuffed us 7 boys into a room with 12 other people. It was bullshit, and I swear to fucking god the only reason we were able to get two double bed rooms was because I made up some sob story about how we were PR, and my camera crew needed the rooms. I’m also not a fan of security gates being installed pool side since it makes people like me, almost impossible to hang out where all the photogs are.

But I need a con to test this monster hunter armor at before AX and Otakon. So I don’t mind making the drive up, and enjoying a beer and a mudslide.

Honesty, if this Saturday ends up being alright, I’ll probably just book off site. Idk.

Does anyone else feel like they shouldnt bother doing more obscure cosplay? I have cosplayed william from nioh and my girlfriend has cosplayed okatsu before and nobody said anything about it.

I mean if i cosplay someone more mainstream or just wear my big suit of armor a lot of people chat with me about it. I like william and feel as though its a good cosplay but the most ive gotten was "hey did you play for honor? you look like a for honor character"

>> No.10166535

I know it can be disheartening to work on something, put a lot of effort into it, and then not get recognized for all the work. What kind of experience you want should dictate what you make though. If you want to cos as a character you like because you'll feel good on your own then do whatever, but if you're looking for discussions/ validation/ people taking pictures, then you'll want to do something more recognizable or withing a larger fanbase.

I had a lot of luck with that last year as homecoming spider-man. I wanted to dress up as him just because (also I was broke), and I was lucky enough to be the only one at the con because it wasn't the go-to outfit to make apparently. Still was recognizable enough because MCU tho that I got a lot of compliments, photo opportunities and discussion out of it. I'd say bring William and for sure dress as him, but then also have something that's a little more recognizable. that way you get to experience both sides.

>> No.10169168

You won't get laid. But if you don't act like a complete idiot, you can have fun partying.

Something like that is a combination of luck, knowing people, and being super buff hot and charismatic

Just focus on having fun, talk to chicks/dudes like normal, etc.

Male here, if a grill is dtf but she's fairly drunk/tipsy do I go for it

>> No.10169394

Obviously not. You know the answer to this.

>> No.10169395

Tipsy is ok, but if she's sloshed/ slurring/ cant keep her eyes open/ cant keep her balance then that's a big NO from me. Sex is great, but I'm sure you wouldnt want to accidentally make a girl feel violated or taken advantage of. Having had drunk sex before, it is can be a toss up.
>tipsy college party sex = not bad
> coerced after mixing alcohol and pain killer to try and kill myself while crying = worst night of my life and feeling dirty and betrayed for months after

>> No.10169536

There's a huge difference between "tipsy" and "fairly drunk" and the fact that you used those two interchangeably already tells me you're trying to justify it to yourself. If she's fairly drunk, don't chance it. You don't know if she's truly down with you, or if the alcohol is blurring her judgement. If she's truly too drunk to consent, it's a crime, and if she gives you dubious consent because she's drunk and then realizes the next day she wasn't actually into it, your life can be ruined. If she's tipsy and genuinely wants to bang, then take your chances, but be smart. Anything other than clear-minded enthusiastic desire should be a no, not only to protect the other person, but to legally protect your ass. It's literally not worth the risk.

Pretty much, yeah. You'll probably see a bit more than you're used to at most cons - thongs (flattering or not), dudes in speedos, smaller swimsuits/cosplays in general. It's a bit wild to see at first, but to me the environment is very comfortable so you'll get used to it quickly.

Listen to what the other anons said and use your best, genuine judgement. If you think a girl isn't completely 150% for it, if you sense even the smallest hint of hesitation on her side, don't ignore it and tell yourself it's fine. It's truly not worth it for some sloppy con sex, if for nothing else but to keep yourself safe. Con predators are getting called out more and more frequently, you really don't want to find yourself on that list.

B. should I shave my legs?
I'm a dude

>> No.10170743

Isn't any quantity of alcohol technically unable to provide consent?
All I remember is what was drilled into my skull in uni orientation and I'm not sure if that's the letter of the law or just campus policy.

Damn, that sounds promising as I think my dad threw away my glass from last year.
Fuck that thing was handy when I had to use it to vomit in. Stood by my side for so long, was always where I stashed it behind bushes :(

>> No.10171807

I mean, if you're trying to go full trap, yes, shave your fucking legs.
Who was the nier cosplayer(girl?????) who's one naked leg was not shaved, her butt was pimpley 3 feet from my face at the nier photoshoot last year.
She kept being loud and obnoxious till some villa man screamed at her ironically and she got thrown into a panic attack and had to be calmed by her lesbian lover.

I'm looking forward to those DnD panels again, saw the ad on Facebook and excited to see him coming back! There are some competitors squeaking in to try and make some headway, but the panelist has been going for a long time and all of them are just as entertaining as they were the first time I saw them. Almost bought the guy a drink last year, but I chickened out afterward.

What are you guys looking forward to seeing?
