you shouldn't go just for the sake of going. it'll suck because you don't have an actual objective. you're not going to have fun because you'll be in a bunch of lines and won't have a payoff at the end of it. also sounds like you have no friends going. AX is a bad con for casuals in general.

if you get sick, that'll be even worse, because you didn't even get to see a guest you really wanted to see or some shit

Not really. The big issue is that Comitket is a Japanese dojin con, almost everyone is going to be speaking Japanese as well as everything there being in Japanese. If you go to Comitket expecting something like SDCC or AX you are not going to have a fun time. There are not going to be a bunch of big name people in anime and manga there.

Being a dojin con would the same if there was a fanfic con in the US. You were not going to meet the creator of My Hero Academia, you were going because your favorite fanfic MHA writer was going to be there.

That has never been the case for any AX going back as far as 2005. I don't know what convention you're pretending AX is, but 99.9% of it is bored weebs shuffling through halls and .1% is ongoing industry panels running advertisements on projectors, shops trying to peddle goods, and cosplay gatherings in extremely inconvenient locations. A non-stop gay pounding fest would be leaps and bounds more interesting than most AX's have ever been.

Not her but this can happen. People at huge cons tend to get into the mode of "Anybody can be talked to" because there's literally so many people that it winds up feeling like city-scale interaction. Conversely small cons tend to mostly be cliques making circles and shutting out anybody not already part of those cliques. It can go both ways in both environments but that mostly just depends on who is where and what everybody's mood is.

correct. if you have friends its fairly easy to get enough people to buy though. each person with a successful lottery win can buy for up to 3 people (which doesn't have to include themselves, so if you got your badge through another person and then you win the lottery you can buy for three other people)

it is in some ways. if you make a bunch of accounts and win on your accounts, you can buy a bunch of tickets. you are limited to the number of shipping addresses you have and the number of devices with browsers you can use to get into the lottery room. theoretically you could spin up a bunch of vm but if you know how to do that you have the knowhow to make more money a better way.

sdcc recently has also been selling charity badges via auction which will have the bidder's name on them and the average price is something like $800-900 for 2 (so $400-450 each). given that those badges (4 day w/preview night) cost $300 to begin with, the scalping ceiling is kind of low. plus anyone buying from you won't have their name on it and won't be able to participate in next year's lottery because it's still technically your ticket and not theirs. if someone with your badge gets caught you would end up banned from purchasing from future events too. add taxes and you're probably at break-even or negative if you're not doing a cash transaction, and for that you'd have to live in sd somewhere for best results

makes scalping not worth the effort

you can still pay for it before ebay deletes it. if at all possible you don't want to use ebay as a seller because they're going to hit you for 10% fee plus 3% if you use paypal. i personally preferred to use craigslist and sell it at the con. for all the stuff i outlined, it isn't really worth it anymore. comic con has to complain to ebay to get the auction taken down so you do have a window before that happens. there's a few up there right now, but i personally wouldn't buy one at scalper prices vs the official auctions

Confidence is king with any kind of interaction, sexually or otherwise. There's no place socially that being confident won't instantly beat out every other attribute of physique or aesthetic of your peers.

Good

This is kinda outside the scope of the thread but I'm press and I've got to do this big interview and want the interviewees to remember me and so, like, I'm almost thinking of getting them thank you cards for the opportunity + some minor thing like a candy or something. Not sure if it'd be nice or weird, but this is the kind of environment where you go all out.

I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about falsely accusing people of being something they are not just because they have a certain opinion. You wouldn't say someone that is OK with Roe Versus Wade is a murderer - you're falsely accusing them of a crime they did not commit, and as far as I know, that is subject to punishment.

You might want to check out the entertainment hall. I got super mario candy from there the last time I was there. The candy itself is nothing special but they come in these nice little containers. I also had a bullet bill one that I gave to my friend.

I was thinking something local if I did, I guess? The issue is getting it to not melt or something if I buy it beforehand. Getting Japanese something would look weeby potentially, but that might be good? I don't know

Nightow + entourage. Only one of them will speak English and will translate for the group.

>You Preregistered?
yup, got my badge
>Vaccinated / unvaccinated / none of your goddamn business?
double vaxxed with a booster. I swear to God if I get turned away I'm going to riot.
>How’s your AX fund jar doing so far and what’s your budget?
Got cash for food, drinks and some merch. I'm pretty frugal though.
>You got your work PTO approved?
I do for Friday, the rest I have off anyways.
>Any setbacks so far until the con?
So far so good. Hope my car lasts the 2 hour trip.
>Cosplay Day 0/1/2/3 plans?
Bought a I love CRT Apron and yellow shirt. Going as Mr. Braun from Steins Gate.
>Since it’s too late to prepare for concerts that anyone cares for, what are your dream guests that you are hoping will get announced the week before AX?
The dream is dead. I was at least expecting Aimi from Bang Dream. Going to City Pop night to see Mari Iijima as a consolation.
>Going to that AX orgy that obviously doesn’t exist?
If it existed I probably wouldn't be invited :(
>What’s the first thing you’re doing at AX after going through a two year timeskip?
Getting my usual 4Loko for breakfast while I await Day 1 Linecon. Going for the exhibit hall when the doors open. Need a new wallet.
