Anyone have stories from con's they've been to? Can range from cool to cringey.

At a Convention in Kansas I rode in the hotel elevator with the dude who plays the main character in Trigun and had no idea at all.

I have tons of fun ones, I only ever go to like one convention a year though :(

I had a artist alley table at a con last week and a girl came up to me, told me she loved my stuff, hugged me, then licked my face.
That was unexpected.

One con I went to was so dead that at times, there were actually more staff and vendors at the con than attendees.

If you are looking to meet people at a con, then just cosplay. It is very easy to go up and talk to people when your cosplaying, especially when you talk to someone is is cosplaying from the same, or similar show.
You can also talk to artists and vendors during off hours when they aren't busy. We get bored during the end of the day and don't mind conversation if we aren't busy. Ask about our products and other cons we have been to.

Honestly one of the best fan-creator meets I've ever had. He was so genuinely touched that we liked his comic series so much and we were both fangirling so hard.

Yeah, it's not a simple outfit, but the mummy bandages are easier than you think. You take a pair of leggings and a long-sleeved top, put them on (or put them on a mannequin if you have one), then just use textile glue to glue the bandages on at a few key spots as you unwind them. As long as you let the glue dry before you take off the piece of clothing, it should be good to last at least one con day (I haven't worn it longer). I would do some tests with scrap bandages and fabric first, since I had to switch glues midway and one of them left visible glue marks.
I made seperate gloves and a balaclava and wrapped them with the same method. I'd reccommend protecting your hair if you have to glue bandages on while you wear the balaclava, though.

I don't even remember how she got home that night but she didn't come back to the con even though she paid for a 3 day pass.

So a few years back at AUSA, I was stupid enough to allow unknown people room with me. Anyway I had two rooms and quite a few of my friends with me.
>Friday afternoon and I notice one of the doors was locked and I couldn't get in. I shrugged it off thinking people were changing. So I go to the other room.
> 2 hours later I go back and the door is unlocked and I walk in on one of the strangers ass naked and full view of his penis.
> I turn the fuck around and leave letting him have his privacy.
> 6 Hours later I return and they are still at it. This time A Tranny is thrown into the mix.
>I am tired,sick (Had gotten food poisoning from a Cesar salad) and just want to sleep but too shy to tell them to knock it off so I go to the other room and crash out for a bit.
>Wake up the next morning and Round two had already started, Annoyed I allowed people to change in the other room and ignore it.
> They stop sometime around 3 to get food and we walk in to claim our stuff and find condoms everywhere. On the floor, Desk and Dresser, One horrified roommate found more shit in the bathroom. another Found rope used to Tie the tranny... apparently to keep them in submission while they did what ever the fuck they did to them.
> They come back and I get on them about using the bed I had assigned to a couple who were my friends and paid more. I moved on and left the room (Still sick as a dog) to see if I could see friends I hadn't seen in a while
>Come back and they are fucking again. And I mean we can hear shit through the walls. Go to the other room and turn on Anime hell to try and drown it out. After a few more hours I had enough and asked the friend who found the rope to tell them they had 5 minutes to wrap it up or they would be kicked out.
> They leave and come back begging me to allow the woman to stay because she was kicked out of her room for being a shitty roommate.

>I reluctantly agree under the condition of no more sex.
>They agree and it holds for about 2 hours And they are at it again again on the bed that they weren't supposed to be on. Fortunately for us one of the couple who were assigned that bed went home for an emergency.
>This time they stop around 11pm and walk out to get food.
>We survey the damage and find Stains all over the bed including blood stains.
>Consider it a lost cause and make the guy who was suppose to sleep on the bed sleep in the other room
>The guy was a nice guy and declined to share a bed with another girl (Religious reasons and he felt it was uncomfortable since he was engaged) So he sleeps on the floor.
>Fast forward to the next morning and we are cleaning up the hotel rooms. Find more condoms.
>In the end the two who hooked up ended up dating

Needless to say they weren't allowed to room with me again. From that point on only people I knew were allowed to stay with me and Sex was restricted to the bathroom. Now that I am married I am pretty much in the room alone and will allow maybe 1-2 people to stay only if I really know them and they know the rules.

Sadly I will forever have that Guy's Dick etched into my brain.

It seems like there's a catch-22 when it comes to attending cons. You can go by yourself, and do all the stuff you want to do; but certain things are better experienced with others, and seeing other people hanging with their friends while you're alone can be rather depressing. You can go with friends, and have no lack of people to do things with; but you probably won't get to do half the stuff you really want to do, and will probably have to deal with dumbass drama to boot.

So, you either get to be lonely or disappointed.
Yay life.

This. It's really not hard to have both - you should be friends with people who understand the need for alone time or the fact that you guys will wanna split on occasion cause you won't always want to be going to the same stuff. I've gone to cons with friends who don't mind doing stuff together and then splitting up and then meeting back up again and it's been nice. I've also been to cons with people who felt that we had to be glued to the hip every moment of the convention and would complain about going to things I wanted to go to or would be mad if I wasn't as enthusiastic as they were about going to something they loved and I didn't know about.

Being offended =/= hating your guts afterwards. Like I disagree with you, but I would still hang out with you if you were a fun person to hang out with. The problem is the people who get really anal about their opinions, regardless of whether they're conservative or liberal. Also the people who cannot contain their own opinions and shove it into everything, even if it hurts other people. Just be reasonable, and most people won't mind that much.

There are less then 200 people at this con but its baby's first con so I'm excited. They somehow trick several VAs and other guest to show up telling them this was an established con including Yoko Ishida. They have a small stage setup in the dealer room for her but she's not there. Overhear some people talking that Yoko was almost in tears because she was not told the con was so small.

Just out of curiosity, but people honestly want completely gender neutral bathrooms? I feel like there should be three bathrooms, Ladies, Mens, and a Gender Neutral one.

I think part of the problem is that the concepts of "ladies room" and "mens room" still exist.
I mean, you're going in there to piss/take a dump. It's something we all do.

This far in, we should realize that there's no real, logical reason in segregating facilities based on biological sex. Like, just go in there, take care of business, then move on with your life.

>b-b-but muh privacy
The presence of a person with a penis in the vicinity does not mean you still can't have privacy if you're in a stall.

>b-b-but muh threat of sexual assault
I got news for you: 99% of people are just regular-ass people who just need to use the bathroom. Also, if a predator is gonna, a sign on a door ain't gonna stop him. ALSO, there seems to be some whole fucking weird assumption that women are never assaulted by other women.

>b-b-but muh grown men in the same room with little girls
Did you know that grown men are in the same space as little girls everywhere else? It's true! As long as everyone involved is just behaving normally and using the restroom for it's intended purpose (which 99% of the people out there will), then everything will be fine. Stop assuming that all grown men are fucking pedophile rapists who are about to snap.

All restrooms should be gender-neutral. People, especially women, need to get the fuck over themselves.

iirc, the restrooms were still separated in the con center, but the con staff themselves had designated them as "gender neutral" bathrooms. so there were still signs for a "men's room" and a "women's room" but in those particular restrooms they were meant to be disregarded (i think they had separate signs up posted by con staff)

Agreed, although honestly I think making genderneutral bathrooms is kind of overkill. Once the genderneutral fad dies away no one will care anymore and no one will use the genderneutral bathrooms if it's presented as a third option, even most trans people will still use the bathrooms they do now (which is the gender they identify with). In that way it has to be all or nothing, there's literally no point in creating a third set of bathrooms for gn.

Anyway to keep this related has anyone noticed that you need a pass to get into artist alleys? And they've been a lot more disappointing the last few years, not a lot of good arts and crafts.

Slightly off topic but at my university they have gender neutral bathrooms. Ironically they were all unisex handicap bathrooms before, and while everyone is falling over themselves at how progressive they were, all they did was change a sign.

I had a similar thing happen to me at a bathroom once. Girl was so frustrated struggling to put fake eyelashes on and noticed that I was wearing some, so she asked me to help her put hers.

It freaked me out to touch a stranger eyelids and face so upclose. She didn't even flinch. I'd rather die or go without eyelashes than have someone's grubby hands on my eyes.

Why the fuck would you tell him that when he's already admitted he thought he was out of control? Dude, no. Should have told him "Yeah you had a little bit too much." and hoped he learned his lesson and didn't repeat it. Telling him it was alright and nothing happened when he was obnoxious and pretty much ruined a good con and almost got his ass beat by some rightfully angry patron, on top of harassing the neighbor girl in a bathroom.. should've come clean, bro.

Not much of a story but I remember washing my hands after using the bathroom at Otakon and there was this one (probably) dad finishing up too. When I was about to leave these two girl Homestuck cosplayers walk in and start checking themselves on the mirror.

The dad mentions something about how this is the men's bathroom and one of the homestuck girls say "it's alright, I identify as male." Walked right out before i got the urge to laugh in their face.

Thanks for following along with the journey, anons! I rarely see Wiccan, RG, and RGB anymore despite going to the same convention every year for over five years now so I'm kinda sad I don't have any more horror stories about staying with them, just what I've heard from other people since then and the few times Wiccan has tried to get me back to being her friend (I met her first and Normie came along about three years later when I was in high school) and only succeeded in making me like her less and those aren't convention related.

What the hell is wrong with her? I can understand the two religious horn-dogs being miffed that their sexytime has been cancelled, but what is Wiccan so upset about that she's crying? Why the hell didn't they all just go back to the con and wait for Married Couple to come back later?

I honestly can't say why Wiccan was crying aside from RG and RGB causing a scene even before I got there and Wiccan just wanting to get in there and change before she went to the rave.
Why they didn't go back to the con? Probably because they were all stuck up and thought not being able to get into the room was the end of the world and they had to get into the room RIGHT THEN instead of waiting forever for Married Couple to come back since no one knew how long they were going to be out.

The most ridiculous part of it all was that I was several years younger than anyone else and only there for a second convention and yet I coped better. Yeah, I had a minor freak out earlier on Saturday morning when I left for the con in the shuttle and realized when I got there that I had left my badge at the hotel and almost cried because Wiccan, RG, and RGB were like "Well too bad because we won't be there for two hours because our cosplays take forever to put on." and I couldn't even get past the hotel lobby without a badge and I had a photoshoot to go to in 30 minutes. Needless to say I missed it but I got over it pretty quick and didn't lose my mind at staffers to force them to let me pass because "I totally have a badge, I just don't have it on me!"

i was at one this past weekend, friend invited me. Havent been to one since highschool back in 2006 for Otakon. Felt slightly old and out of my element with these people. but here we go!
>be me, successful 29yr old with good full-time job working part-time hours
>anime, japanese anything were my teen years, grown past that
>friend is like "hey we should go back to X"
>im like "yeah i hear they got like 100,000 people now, remember when it was just 11,000 and fucking crowded? how the fuck is it now?"
>friend mentions local con right in our backyard has been going on for a few yrs
>groupon FTW
>mentions video game tournaments
>MK8, sm4sh, persona, the works...
>sign up for MK8 because Ive grown up with that shit since '92
>round 1 = me, some kid in costume with mask, 2 others (one was a literal n00b by definition)
>race #1 ends and I already feel guilty for winning
>i move to round 2 after four races and I tell them "sorry" for making it unfair for them (i did cheer the girl because she somehow trolled the finish line and placed second in a few races)
>round 2, close races I once again handicap myself and pick base mario and base cart/wheel/glider
>red shell aggro all 4 races, somehow finish second. Number of players results in final right consisting of 1st and 2nd place in both heats. So i move to finals
>Final round: me, the guy who looks like he mains metaknight, luigi playing as luigi, and some guy who does all the local tournaments in my area cause everyone knew who he was...
>easy first win
>good come back in race 2 for 2nd
>fucked sideways for a 3rd place finish in race 3
>rainbow road, 4th place, final lap, final stretch to the finish
>item? bullet bill
>trolled my way to victory and the tournament win
>"GG" to my peers, and a grammys style thank you to RNG

outside of this tournament i participated in, I found myself kinda missing it all. The panels, the dealers, the art, the "hey! look! it's X!" moments.

In a quiet lull, I walked to the bathroom between activities. At the end of the hall, there was a small grand piano. A man was sitting there quietly but tentatively looking around, seemingly shy. I walked up and asked him, "Play for me, please?" He deferred a bit but I motioned for him to do it. I stood while he played all the parts of one of my most favorite classical pieces, without any hint it was my favorite, but somehow, he knew to play it. I thanked him, we smiled and I went on my way. Just a small magical moment.

I was walking behind a really sexy beautiful Supergirl.... I don't think she was wearing the red cape. I am a virgin and all I wanted to do was pinch her ass.

I knew 3 things would have happened. I would have been jumped and slapped by the dozens of people around me. I would have been arrested and my life would be over. And I'd be another creeper rape statistic that gets posted about by unfuckable fat girls on >>/co/

Haha sorry for the potshot. I just get pissed at the creeper posts, I feel like I'm being scolded with each story. I had self control and didn't touch the gal, I just kept moving along and went home with dozens of prints.

Wanting to do something naughty is normal, we all have similar urges at one time or another. You aren't a creeper if you don't DO anything. Thought is not the deed. Way different.

I have one friend who has done this every con I've been to with him. Once or twice he wanted to see a guest and get a autograph so we did that but typically he doesn't have anything specific in mind and he just ends up following me around like a shadow. I went to a speed dating panel and he just sat in a food court waiting for me the entire time instead of going off and meeting people or finding a panel or an anime viewing room or something. It was...kind of off putting? But he always says he has a great time and he wants to go to more cons so whatever.

Don't act like your dog is a perfect angel. Sometimes the ones we love are being little shits, and that's okay.

holy shit ok so if this is real life then
i am so sorry you had to go through this. that's legitimately insane. at that age you are ok to go to cons on your own, is this what it's like in america? how could anyone think it was ok taht this woman was disrespectful to all of you?

100% real, anon. RG's mom was all shades of crazy but so was Wiccan's mom so I guess since they grew up with it, they didn't see anything wrong with it?

And no, that's not typical of America. Usually if you got to conventions, you're not going to have a parent with you unless you're underaged or you're an adult who just shares geek bonding with your parents and the both of you want to be there.

I will never understand these people. I'm very independent at cons to the point where I'll even leave my gf to run around solo if I'm feeling bored/restless. It's all about trying/seeing new things, and hanging around one person all day isn't going to let you do that. Sheesh

LOL It wasn't like that at Katsucon. Had a good mix of for the initial meetup. Eventually it became like 70/30 after people got tired of the novelty but overall it was alright.

Aren't the cgl meets mostly dudes? If there are girls the girls tend to leave early anyway. So it's basically a good way to find other cgl-bros and do bro things together, isn't it? I don't think there's even enough girls to call anyone autists at those meetups.

I don't know about other meetups but my local ones are pretty even. Maybe a few more guys but y'know.

All the /cgl/ meetups I've been to were mostly women. But the ones I went to were only people who cosplayed or wore lolita. Now it's just people who come here during a con looking to meetup with people, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's mostly dudes.
