Colossalcon is just a few months away! Let’s get some discussion going.>What’s your lineup?>How’s cosplay progress going?>Anything you’re excited about this year?>Anything you’re not excited about?>Cosplay Predictions?>What are your hopes for the con?>Any shoots/panels you want to see?>Any shoots/panels you’re planning?>Thoughts on the two dealers rooms?>What about the rental bins?And of course any other discussion.
this is my first collosalcon, i’m just planning on cosplaying a swimsuit [email protected], and going to the tea party hopefullyi’m hoping to find some cosplay groups online to join but haven’t found many posted yet
>>9812016I’m excited for the 11pm-3am $20 waterpark pass. I have only been to this con once and while I don’t think it’s all that it’s hyped up to be, I’m still happy I’m going. Don’t care about temperature really so I’ll be Leo from kekkai sensen, pic related which is going to be so fun, and some obligatory bikini thing I haven’t found yet.
>>9812124i thought the collosalcon pass includes the water park pass
>>9812126It’s not, it’s included with a Kalahari room purchase. Otherwise it’s separate.
>>9812128oh my b, that’s what i got it mixed up wit
>>9812126Definitely not, it's like $35 per day to go to the water park when you don't have a Kalahari room. Even if you have a room, the night swim is extra. This con gets expensive so fast.
Colossal is one of my dream cons. Too bad I live in Europe and I'm broke. Oh, but some day...
>>9812136o, did not know about that night swim.. i’m just saving up lots to cosplay and drink
>What’s your lineup?Pic related>How’s cosplay progress going?Most of them are almost complete so that takes some stress off>Anything you’re excited about this year?Just getting to have fun with my friends>Anything you’re not excited about?Fucking Uganda Knuckles. I know there will be some. >Cosplay Predictions?DDLC and BNHA are what I think will be big. And of course overly sexualized things because water park>What are your hopes for the con?I hope I make new friends and maybe find a girlfriend.>Any shoots/panels you want to see?Hoping for Blue Exorcist stuff but not holding my breath>Any shoots/panels you’re planning?Submitted a Voltron panel so I hope I get that>Thoughts on the two dealers rooms?I’m looking forward to seeing it it’s gonna be like>What about the rental bins?I feel like it’s an accident waiting to happen honestly
>>9812116>swimsuit [email protected]Hello friend, same
It’s my very first CC and I’m beyond nervous. Skipping Acen for this. >What’s your lineup?Nothing is 100% planned yet but some idols for sure. I’ll probably only do one swimsuit cos. >How’s cosplay progress going?Haven’t even started yet Tbh >Anything you’re not excited about?My friends are hot messes and getting them to get anything done (such as booking the air bnb) is like pulling teeth. >Any shoots/panels you want to see?All of the shoots I want to go to are on Saturday! No idea what to do. >Thoughts on the two dealers rooms?So the dealers and AA are separate or is really just two dealers rooms?
>>9812209I also live in Europe but i have decided to go to this con and i cant back out of it since i already made a lot of friends from the group plus i planning some group cosplays too
This will be my first time going to this con, im so excited and nervous at the same time>What’s your lineup?my plan isnt 100% but i am doing Mermaid Espeon, Shy gal, gloomy bear sonico and some idols>How’s cosplay progress going?i havent started making it yet but i plan to start in 2 weeks and im hoping to order my other cosplays next week>Anything you’re excited about this year?Meeting all my new US friends that i made through the different groups as well as going into the waterpark>Anything you’re not excited about?about what stuff id be dragged into while at this con>Cosplay Predictions?BNHA, Uganda Knuckles, Earth Chan, lots of thots and sexy people>What are your hopes for the con?That i make more friends and experience a proper party at the con>Any shoots/panels you want to see?BNHA, pokemon, nintendo, kpop/jpop panel >Any shoots/panels you’re planning?Mermaid Eeveelution shoot and Cheer shoot>Thoughts on the two dealers rooms?never been so i dont know what to expect>What about the rental bins?whats the rental bins?
>>9812016>What about the rental bins?I don't really understand why they decided to charge us for the same item check they've always had. Because we get to put a bag in an oversized bin? I've never seen a con charge for item check, they're just nickel and diming us.
>what’s your lineup?See attached, it seems I’m half and half between suave English gentlemen and backwoods salt of the earth types.>how’s the progress going?Ha ha ha ha..... I plead the fifth>anything you’re excited about?My GF and I are doing a few cute photoshoots together.>anything you’re not excited about?I’ll be changing costumes two times each day....kill me now. Also dead memes like Uganda knuckles and tide Chan>cosplay predictions?Some Fate, some BNHA, i’ve Seen that I’m not the only one doing monster hunter, also swimsuits, lots of swimsuits.> hopes for the con?Spend a weekend with friends, make some new ones, get some good pictures.>any shoots/panels you want to see?I hope someone submits a MH shoot, preferably for late Saturday. Also I hope the RWBY pajama party panel, the comedy Gundam panel, and Late Night With Commander Shepard come back this year.>thoughts on two dealers rooms?It was too small last year hope this helps.>what about rental bins?Either a godsend or a disaster waiting to happen.
Who's taking bets on panels this year? Think they'll actually get a decent schedule together or is it just going to be the same old garbage as usual?
>>9812988I really hope that shitty dance group doesn't have a whole "show" this year.
Last year my bf and I got REALLY lucky with our room ($100 floor space, shared passes but we were rooming with vendors so they ended up never using them, and our room was literally the first one next to the convention center) but this year due to his work schedule we might be going for just Friday/Saturday and staying off site with friends. @ People who have stayed off site, is it really that bad?
>>9814636It's not bad if you plan ahead so that you don't need to go back and forth to your hotel. Got o the con center early in the morning or else you won't get a parking spot (or ride the shuttle if you have that option). Bring a bag with everything you need and store it in the waterpark changeroom lockers. Between the lobby, restaurants, and outdoor waterpark there's plenty of places at the kalahari to rest, eat and even take a nap, and you can use the changerooms to change into cosplay and put on make up and stuff.
>>9813163I honestly think this is going to be a disaster
>tfw u go to colossal for years and this is the first you’re not able to get a kalahari roomSuper upset. My first year I had a suite with a hot tub in the room and now we’re at a fucking Hilton.Anyway I’m not even sure what I’m bringing because everything is still in progress.
>>9812116ill also be in swimsuit [email protected]!!
Can you imagine if this happened during the con?
>>9815205They were probably hoping it would happen during the con lmao
>tfw still no room.
What does this mean for the con? http://www.foxnews.com/travel/2018/03/12/air-duct-at-kalahari-resort-water-park-falls-into-pool-injures-5.html
>>9815312someone else literally just posted that
>>9815234Are they all full or what? I tried to get an estimate on the price and the website wouldn't let me select the days of the con.
>>9815367Nonny, it's been full sold out since June. 4 nighters booked it all. Join the room and ride share page and pray>tfw you signed on early and had a desert passed to you
>>9815468yeah my group was calling since the minute reservations opened, used multiple phones, was on hold for increments of 30 minutes and we didn’t even get our first choice of rooms. It was a bloodbath.
>>9815134I hear ya m8, IF I go I'll be in the Great Wolf Lodge
>>9815468Oh shit. Me and my two friends were going to stay at the Kalahari but now we're fucked. I booked a room like a month before east with ease and i had no idea people snagged all the rooms for the regular colossal so quickly. Idk what to do now
>>9815952Stick with going to east, main is just too hard.
>>9816063I don't wanna give up. Hopefully someone will cancel their reservation or something. Imma check every day. Im tired of taking Ls all the time.
>>9812571ACEN is SO much better when it comes to con content.
>>9817243It's obvious they don't put much effort into content. They could literally eliminate panels entirely from the con and do just about as well thanks to the Kalahari.
It's a long shot, but is anyone driving in /through/ Colorado amd has a spot for one more? Planes and trains are stupid expensive. I have bedspace spot with your name on it in my room at the Kalahari if you are
>>9818431aw. were driving from seattle, that’s a little too far a detour for us.
Someone's gonna drop a room. I can feel it. My time is coming soon
>>9818501Great googly moogly that's some dedication. I at least hope you're seeing the whole con starting Wednesday for that kinda drive?
Does anyone cosplay on Wednesday? I was planning to but nothing big. Just Iwatobi stuff to hang around in.
>>9818853You're good anon, there are actually a surprising amount of people who cosplay on Wednesday. I plan on doing it too!
>>9818606Yea we’re getting there early and hanging out, since it’s our first collosalcon
>>9819320There’s a lot of cool things around the kalahari resort. Hope you enjoy it!
>>9817952Who the fuck goes to colossal for panels
>>9821098People who watch hentai for the plot
>>9821118You know what, that’s fair.
no where to stay so will probably have to skip this year
Haha did you see that they're doing a con cruise and tried to hit for Ohayocon's weekend? Can't wait to see how that works out.
Any photographers you guys recommend/don’t recommend? Mine decided to get into videography instead, so I gotta find someone new.
>>9822134Wowee I can't wait to be trapped at a convention I can't leave from with several hundred pervs who have free unlimited alcohol. Three cheers for all the harrassment stories we'll be seeing in February!
>>9822134I think i might try to go. It sounds really cool
>>9822356Damn. That's an incredibly negative way to think about it.
>>9822134Yea, this is going to be a disaster. Between free booze, cramped quarters and plenty of weebs that have never been on a boat before there is a reason no one has tried to do this. Give it one day and the whole ship will smell like a mixture of vomit (both from seasickness and booze) the worst con funk you have ever smelled, and if it gets really bad, blood from all the cosplayers who thought it would be a good idea to try and wear an elaborate cosplay on a rocking boat. This is Dashcon levels of bad idea.
>>9817952Honestly, they could take away the game room too and still do well.
>>9822134So I don't see how a lot of vendors and artists are going to play ball with a boat, loading would be so hard. And there's no way a game room can happen on a boat that's going to sway. So panels, cosplay, and booze? They really should have just called it a retreat, it'll hardly be a con without games and merch.
>>9822621Everything I've seen pointed to nothing being "convention-like" about it besides the name. They mentioned cosplay because people will wear it just because it's sponsored by Colossal
>>9822646They're advertising it and leading people to believe it's a con cruise, I hope they're really transparent about what they're offering.
>>9822555It's a chartered activity on a larger boat. Cruise ships hold thousands of people, the congoers will be a minor blip in the sea of normies also getting trashed and dehydrated in the carribean sun.>>9822621The vendors and artists at Colossal suck, though. Nothing of value being lost.
I’m missing pieces from a cosplay I’m bringing back from last Colossal and I can’t find them anywhere. I’m going crazy because I really don’t want to remake them. Wish me luck
>>9819303Oh good! I wasn’t sure and I didn’t want to be the only dumb weeb cosplaying that day.
>>9822555I take it you’ve never been on a cruise ship before.
>>9815134i feel yatwo years ago was the last year we were able to get a room at the kalahari and it was a tiny hut room, we went every year before that and had lodge suites each year.feels bad man, i miss it so much
>>9824805Hey at least you have a room, competition is only going to get tougher now :(
>>9815134>>9824805>>9824891I kinda feel ya, I was struggling to find someone to crash with luckily one of the girls in my group im planning is letting me have some floor space from Thursday-Monday for $150 which i think is a good deal (compare to my other friend who is charging me $200 from Wednesday-Monday)
>>9821098Some of the panels are decent. Waluigi Time was fun last year but honestly that was the only one I went to.
>>9818568Someone dropped about a month ago for whatever reason and my friend picked up it. He'd been automatically refreshing every 10 minutes during his desk job. Happy for him>Mfw won the phone lottery when the rooms opened and got not one but TWO rooms
>>9825622>AutomaticallyI meant autistically but hell maybe he did do it automatically somehow. Makes sense since he's a web developer
>>9822134Looks like it'll be ridiculously expensive for just 3 days
>>9825624Yeah, I don't think it would be too hard for someone with coding knowledge to make a simple script to send an alert if the page changes
Vic Bologna is back again but this time staff are deleting all the critical comments about him. Guess they don't like being called out on favoring The Perv :^)
>>9818431This is still open senpai. Open to the bitch seat if need be
>>9826621Staff deletes anything that goes against them and their plans so that’s not too shocking
>>9825622I will pay you a large sum of money for one of them
>>9826986Sorry breh. We've already got people to fill both rooms
>>9827612You're not even that anon Though. Dont play with my heart like that please
>>9828006Its all good bro.
I submitted my DJ application. Wish me luck, anons. I hope I at least hear back, even if I'm not picked.
This is my second colossal and it’s going to be fucking ballistic. I have a few normal cosplans but I’m finally going to be the swimsuit thot I was born to be. Colossal is the best, man.
I found out last week that I now can't go to colossalcon because it clashes with my exam the next day. one of my friend recommended me to go to colossalcon east but I don't know.... should I go to colossalcon east instead or wait until next year for colossalcon?
>>9829519you can’t do a make up exam?
>>9829389What does your image have to do with your post?
>>9829552sadly not, i went to ask and they said I cant unless I cant take the exam because of medical or health reasons... also this exam is for a retake of an exam i took back in January but failed so its kinda my fault for having to take it again
>>9829519East is pretty fun, but its mostly indoors because it was too cold to be outside last year
Here's a tip: if you want to avoid crowds, don't go to the nightswim. I've always found the park (especially the hot tub bars) way more packed than they are in the afternoon.
>>9829519>>9830241I'm going to East this year instead and I'm really excited! It seemed pretty popular last year, and I think got some good press. Probably won't be as crowded but I think I'm okay with that.>>9830329The night swim really wasn't worth it to me... It was fun to hang out with my friends in the hot tubs I guess, but expect to wait at least a half hour for a drink at the bars. It was awful and just not worth it to me.
Every time I went to the nightswim I was too drunk to enjoy being in hot water and there were too many people. I guess I'll only go if a lot of my friends go, otherwise I'm sticking to the villa parties
>>9830241>>9830499less crowded is a good thing right? one reason why i wanted to originally go to colossalcon is because its sunny and is good for outdoor photoshoots. I will try and decide by August if i go to colossalcon east. For now i'm just gonna watch all my friends post about how much fun they're having at colossalcon.
>>9832591Last year East was cold and miserable, the outdoor waterpark wasn't open. Keep that in mind for your plans.
Photoshoot schedule is outhttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XbhA0PgGLvskld0n7fkSUGDRafK-IoYs92JA3kVTIxA/htmlview#gid=1338943889
>>9834616> no [email protected] meets-someone host one..!
>>9830499How were the lines at the water park rides?
>>9834710>tfw your fetish is now mainstream
>>9834653There’s the all idol meet up, unfortunely that and the LL meet up is run by this cringy dude. >tfw wearing idols all weekend >now what
>>9834653Submissions are still open if you want to host one
>>9826259Less than two months now.
>>9822156i have a friend who charges 20-30$ for a half hour shoot and does a good job for what it is. let me know if youre interested and ill reply his info
my lineup for this year, other than sandstorm katarina, will be all bikini coses. im helping my friend with photoshoots all weekend so itll be a good time
>>9837508I'm not the same anon but I'm interested
>>9837575do u have instagram? If so hmu @skrivvaa and i’ll get u in contact. 99% of the professional photos on my page are his work.
>>9837623your friend's photos are boring and there aren't many examples on your page either
>>9839279Not that anon, but because the pictures you get are so simplistic his rates are fairly cheap. So it’s fair. >gonna give him a shot, just with a simple costume desu
So what’s going on with the Lolita tea party? The tickets aren’t available yet? I thought they’d be by now considering on is less than 2 months away. There also aren’t any Lolita indie brands announced yet either ; or applications for the fashion show? Is that still a thing this year as well?
>>9839279ymmv, for the price point Im happy with them
>>9839751Check the website
>>9839825I did. I see they had ticket info up as well as the tickets . However, still nothing about the fashion show and or indie brands. Disappointing.
I just had a second Fate series cosplay ship out in time to miss the small local con. I'm miffed there's only one official Type Moon shoot this year, is anyone organizing an unofficial one?
>>9840034Just organize one yourself? All of Colossalcon's gatherings are fan-run.
>tfw three of the fandoms you’re bringing have photoshoots on Friday within an hour of each other
>>9840375I'm having the exact problem, except my three are on Saturday. >>9840034There's an unofficial one on Friday at 12 pm. Check the doc.
>tfw cosplaying a series that you know won’t get a shoot or have enough cosplayers for a shoot
>>9840975I feel you.
>Tfw you were hyped for the idols photoshoot and the Vocaloid photoshoot until you saw who was running them
>>9841144Right? Super disappointed.>Will make the best of the idol shoot tho.>>9840975What series, anon?
>>9837623why did you photoshoot mercy with no armor
>>9841144Yeah, that guy is a homophobic creep. I won’t go to any of his events.
>>9841221I was planning on going to both shoots with my boyfriend (I’m male) in couples cosplay but now I’m just gonna...not.It blows my mind that a grown-ass man who likes dressing like a schoolgirl can be that homophobic and conservative
>>9841231Right? He’s a real piece of work, and he changed his name on Facebook as well. Last I checked his profile isn’t private and oh boy, he posts a lot of homophobic and political crap, too.
I just went ahead and booked my room for east. I accept the fact that the Kalahari is a dead dream for this year
>>9841221>>9841231I’ve looked his profile and I’ve seen some racist shit (even though his wife’s his black.) I didn’t see any homophobic stuff though. What’d he say?
>>9841377When same sex marriage was legalized, he harassed about a dozen people on my friends list (including myself ) who shared a picture celebrating its legalization. He told me and my best friend about how we’re going to hell and how it’s our fault that country is fucked up and blamed lgbt for a lot of issues.
>>9841181Blue Exorcist. Not as popular as when it first came out.
>>9841231You shouldn’t let him stop you from cosplaying what you want because I doubt he’d harass you in front of a group. And if he does, make a huge fucking stink about it. I’d personally love to see this dude get called out.
>>9841419If you have screenshots from back then, call him out or email them to CC and see if he gets booted.
>>9841496Or if there’s screenshots someone could make a callout post. If enough people know about his shit, we might be able to get the fandoms to boycott his meetups and host their own
>>9841496>>9841513>mfw outsider who doesn't know about any dramaIt's really bizarre imagining all this stuff going around when all I wanna do is cosplay and snap pictures.
>>9841513I have screenshots of his FB posts But they wouldn’t even be looked at since they’re merely opinion posts. Proof of harassment on the other hand, definitely would.
>>9841588I agree. He was smart enough not to send anyone a PM but merely call them out on their posts. Staff won't be able to do anything about that.
So...Idols & Vocaloid /cgl/ meetups?
>>9841231>>9841772I say just go to the meets and if he starts pulling some shit try to record it for proof and get staff involved. Just make the most out of it and try to have fun.
What’s everyone’s lineups looking like? I love looking at these.
>>9842990My main focus is being as basic bitch as possible. Character hair/accesories/bikini.I'm really tired of spending so much money at cons. I love buying Artist Alley prints and misc. merch, but I'm not rich and tend to come up short due to tossing out money for cosplays. So 2Bikini it is.
>>9841301I feel you, I'm most probably going to do the same because I really want to go to colossalcon but sadly I can't
>>9841221Is he the guy who cosplays as Love Live girls? I remember him being quite popular and having a big following in the Love Live Hell community
Any word about the Lolita tea party? Fashion show? I find the lack of info troubling. And yes I checked the website.
>>9840855Got added after I made the post, yeah.
>>9843366This is what I found on the website.Is the Colossal lolita tea party good? I’m newer to the fashion and have never been to an anime con tea party. It seems pretty affordable compared to other anime cons and you get a decent time slot + (what sounds like) a decent amount of food, but I’m debating if I want to take that much time out of my day on Saturday (I usually reserve Saturday for showing off my big cosplay.)
>>9843221You can't stay at one of the nearby hotels?
>>9843543I’ve never been , but I heard it’s 50/50. We usually have a few guests and a fashion show featuring comm members and Indie brands. So far, no word about guests or the fashion show.
Anyone know what the deal with this is? It seems like a good option if you just want to hang out in the water park, but I can’t find it in the Colossal or the Kalhari website
>>9843600Last year I think the passes were $10 a person. The pass lets you get into the water park to walk around and check things out. I don’t know if there is a max amount of time you can spectate the lake or not . I’m sure you could call kalahari and find out.
>>9843543The food and sweets were really good last year, but I didnt go in with many expectations since it was my first tea party ever. The girls at my table were really friendly and chill and the hosts seemed like they had everything together well. So if you go, just dont sit by itas and you'll probably have a good time.
Did anyone go to the fashion show last year? I heard there was a lot more people then the year before. Since my closet has upgraded and my coordinating is a lot better I may or may not participate in the fashion show this year.
I didn't but it seems like the Ohio comm is really chilled out. And they seem to have a lot of shit to do.
>>9842990do u gave groups for these..? i have devil koto and i want to cosplay pearl.. -crosses fingers-
>>9843600 Is this pass for photographers? That’s pretty nice. >>9843543 A few years ago my friends went and they really enjoyed it so they bought us all tickets for this year’s. I’m really looking forward to it.
>>9843842I don’t actually! I would love to meet up for pictures. You going to any of the meet ups?
Anyone planning to do the craft fair this year? What kind of stuff are you bringing or hope to see?I’m hoping to add more stuff to my ita bags.
>>9843941that would be awesomee, i kind of want to the LL meet but seeing earlier posts I’m slightly worried about that weird dude running the meet so I’m not sure.. I might also end up wearing mermaid set just cause water but on the fence>>9844328I’m going but idk what to expect, i’ll buy things that are cute..
I’m so excited for the Lolita tea party! Daddy helped me pick out a super cute cord ^w^ If you hear me crinkling, say hello!
>>9845690What the fuck
>>9845690I’m also bringing a lolita swimsuit (like pic related) to play in the water park. Will they let me in if I wear swim diapers underneath?
>>9845714Hahahha holy fuck of course diaper-chan
>>9845690uwu so glad we have such a supportive lolita community hereI wish more daddies visited our board D:I just need someone to change my shitty diaper before it gets on my brand, this is bodyline ;-;
I hope they have a plate of starburst at the tea party
>>9845730We're not that supportive. Gtfo
>>9845740>>9845741man cgl really is retarded
>>9845690Nothing in your picture is related to Or is Lolita fashion. Take your fetish shit else where and educate yourself about Lolita fashion.
>>9845961>falling for bait this hard
>>9843550Nah I can't, I'm travelling from another country for this convention or at least I was until I found out I can't make it. But I will probably try for colossalcon east, I have a friend who said she will have room for me to share with her.
I've been looking forward to this con for months, but I'm still not at the weight I need to be. It's honestly dragging the entire mood down for me. I needed to lose like at least 40-50 lbs for this con, but I've only lost like 10 so far this year. Any cute cosplays for chubby girls that would be okay for me to do/not look awful in by the time the con rolls around?
>>9845975I see I’ve triggered you too, anon ;)
>>9846044>>>/trash/Your next post will be "I was only pretending to be retarded."
>>9845690gdi, why did someone screenshot this in RC?
>>9846036Any of them. Everyone there is so drunk no one really gives a fuck except the sober fucks who weren't able to go. Go wear a bikini, drink a giant cup of alcoholic sugar slush for every meal, and have a goddamn ball. If you want someone that's fatter in comparison (probably), look for me. I'll make you look skinnier by default and I'll buy you a confidence-boosting drink.
>>9846064Because they clearly can’t comprehend what bait is. Or they just wanted to stir shit
>>9846036Trust me, as long as you have a fat butt and are friendly, you will get fucked. no one cares about your weight
>>9846111What really weirded me out was that it was posted by a creep looking guy
>>9846036Agreeing with >>9846067But also replying to >>9846155, pochako is the better choice >>9846157LOL
My lineup. TBPH I'm not thrilled about 3 outfit changes in one day at what's supposed to be a chill vacation/party con for me. I'm only wearing Len for an hour or two because the host of the Vocaloid photoshoot asked me to bring him, and he might get dropped depending on how I'm feeling that day.
>>9846122I don't want to be fucked but ok.
>>9846122>when you're chubby but you don't have a fat butt, you have a small peach buttI have big Tits though... so I guess that's something...
>>9846155I was actually going to cosplay gloomy bear sonico for colossalcon
>>9846262Oh trust me those are good too>>9846211kekI totally believe you
>>9845730Probably aren't too many daddies around here because they're all too busy online with their full time kink, pedophilia
>>9846157>>9846111I made the original screenshot just to start shit. Making fun of pedos who wear diapers is always mildly entertaining, regardless of the fact that post is bait
>>9846596Think I saw this Seras back in Matsuri '15My friend reaaaaally wanted to fuck her though she was with someone lol
Are you allowed to bring alcohol into the water park
>>9846744You can bring it to your hotel and I think you can walk around with the hotel drinks and stuff.The indoor waterpark has two bars, but I don't think they allow outside drinks
>>9846744>>9846750Ah, this totally slipped my mind. Time to save some serious cash $$$
>>9845991Damn. Well east is pretty fun too. Im sure you'll like it
>>9846750Im 21 and my boys are 20. I didn't want to be the only one getting fucked up while they feel left out. We're staying at a different hotel so we're probably gonna have to uber back to smoke and drink.
>>9846744Nope as far as I know. We’ve always snuck in our booze.
>>9846762They're pretty hard on underage drinking thereso def have them keep it in the hotel man
>>9846767Yeah i figured. I cant wait until east when everybody is 21
>>9846763I saw some vlogs when people had beer and bottles and sake and shit. How do you sneak yours in?
>>9846761yeah im really excited about it, my best friend has just messaged me about how she wants to go with me to colossalcon next year.
>>9846828by colossalcon east/colossalcon 2019 both me and my friend would be over 21 (im currently 21 but my friend doesnt turn 21 until August).
>>9846750Don’t he hotel has a bar, and you can walk around with drinks from there? Or just the waterpark has bars?
>>9846776Brought in water bottles and coke cans wrapped in our towels amd shoved them in a tote bag. This year I’m using a yeti bottle.
>>9846840I think so but I'd check
>>9846122not the same anon, but how easy is it to hook up with someone at this con
>>9846840Both the convention center/hotel and waterparks have bars. You can walk around with drinks inside and outside. I've seen people walk around with non-Kalahari drinks/bottles with no problem before, but I've always tried to be somewhat discreet. It's really nbd though.
>>9846941Depends if you're a guy or girl lmao. It's a good con to meet people and party at though, so your chances are definitely upped.
>>9846596So YOU are the creepy looking guy?
>>9846964nah, the original was posted in the colossal 21+ no rules page
>>9846941Depends on how forward/attractive you are
>>9846964This guy is unattractive but nothing suggests he's a "creep" lol
>>9847019The fact that he's on a lolita group without actually having anything to do with lolita makes me think he is
>>9847065He is a Lolita and a part of the comm. always asking for advice on his coords, how he can improve, etc. he’s far from a creep.
>>9846960tfw the con always falls on the week of my periodtfw to make things worse I'm more into girls but they never want to fugg at conskill me
>>9847301Girls never want to fuck other girls period, especially since it's impossible lol
>>9847468Sad truthget cleaned up and start collecting on dick
>What’s your lineup?Going to be making an Asuka Langley's red and white swimsuit and making a Spongebob design. Hope to bring Rikku as well for just wandering around. I think I might put together a Sakura Haruno bikini outfit too for the hell of it and it'll be super easy. >How’s cosplay progress going?Working on getting a body suit patterned out right now for another summer costume but after that's done I can get started on my swim wear. Hope to get a little more swole before the summer too. >Anything you’re excited about this year?Excited to be back in my home state just for a little while! Glad our trip can involve Colossalcon. We have our stuff all booked. >Anything you’re not excited about?The price... We couldn't get a room at the Kalahari of course so it's going to be expensive buying me and my husband day swim passes for at least 2 days.Pretty nervous about how my bikini line is going to behave too... My skin has been super sensitive and I'm hoping I'm not going to look like I had a date with Freddy Krueger the night before. >Cosplay Predictions?Not sure. I guess I don't pay a lot of attention to the cosplay trends. >What are your hopes for the con?I hope I get to see a lot of my old cosplay friends. Hoping to also not have any suit malfunctions since it's my first time working with swimwear. >Any shoots/panels you want to see?If I can find a pink bikini I like enough I'll make up a Sakura Haruno swimsuit from one of the beach endings. If that's the case I hope I find some Naruto shoots. Maybe some final fantasy stuff? I'm mostly planning on just going with the flow.>Any shoots/panels you’re planning?Maybe a Naruto one if interest is shown. No panels planned though.>Thoughts on the two dealers rooms?I've only been to Colossal twice and it was a long time ago. So I guess I don't really have enough attendance experience to have an opinion. >What about the rental bins?wut
>tfw i find out yall some thots and i'm guaranteed ass
>>9843619Except 80% of the lolitas at colossal are itas, so good luck.
>>9846744Just get a chalice and you can take whatever drink you want anywhere on the property, including the waterpark.
>>9847936Begone heathen. Do not sully Pucci's pure image.
>>9847950Everything pucci wanted to do for dio, i will do for you
>>9847939That's because 75% of the ita's at colossalcon were from the Ohio comm so that explains the massive amount of shitty coords
San is going, I hope you ladies are ready for this stud should you meet him at a party!
>>9848214who the fuck is this, and you are friends with them
>>9848214I threw up a little.
>>9848128That explains it. I did the fashion show once a few years ago and it was so embarrassing bad. I couldn't bring myself to do any lolita activities at that con ever again. It's all about them pool cosplays now.
>>9848411Ohio lolcow and ex-tripfag who got called out in a huge con creep post pre-youmacon. I even saw a thread made for him here once. Instagram is ryusei_cos but everyone just knows him as San and no only reason I have him on fb is for his daily foolishness I post here sometimes
>>9848411How else do you keep tabs on mang?
>>9848600I used to know him; he quietly unfriended me before this all came out lolI remember him getting pissed when my scrub friend owned him at Guilty Gear a long time ago
>>9848613He never keeps friends over two months it seems, deservedly lol. I’m just saying gulls, don’t let him become your “friend” at a photoshoot or something (probably fate and kancolle) lest you want tagged in his cringe posts and associated with a literally massive pervert. Pic related isn’t a creeppost but it is my new favorite from another thread
>>9848572Was it the year they got Elegy to come for the fashion show?
>>9848623No, it was the year after. The only reason I did it was because I heard about the Elegy one the year before and it seemed okay.
>>9848630Oh okay. I participated in it the last few years, that weird brolita ita keeps coming to it and I swear he makes everyone feel uncomfortable. I hope he decides not to participate and make everyone look bad
>>9848691How pathetic. If it’s who I think it is, why don’t you try and actually talk to him? Or are you afraid he’s gonna creep on you? He’s a nice dude , just autistic and shy.
>>9848622Have you guys seen him? He's not exactly enticing; you can pretty safely avoid him by just understanding you can do wayyyy better
>>9848622Thats an oddly specific and apt time frame
>>9848803Didnt he get called out for creeping on underage girls? Or was that a different cosplayer?
>>9849120he fucked an underage teen and bragged about it
>>9849120>>9849243I found that one thread. it has the imgur album link with all the deets. Some of it I think the creator is more vindictive than actually upset but still avoid the guy lol https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/9795852/
>>9849278ow the edge
>>9848214The legend returns. I'm excited for the new lore that will come from it
Anyone got the East coast cgl discord?
I know one of you goons is willing to sell their room at Kalahari for a profit.The question is who?Lets Make a Deal
>>9850251Get in line
here's my lineup. I'm pretty excited because half of these are debuts.Top row: Runescape PK'er Durial321, Fate/Go's Julius Caesar and Medjed, nothing Sunday.Bottom row: Jimmy Buffett as seen in Jurassic World, Fire Emblem 7's Pent, Pokemon Frontier Brain Noland, still nothing Sunday.
>>9848803I’m sorry I’ll stop shitting up the thread with santent but he just posted this and it was relevant>300 lbs living in squalor is decently attractive now
>>9850417He almost had a good point about trying your best regardless of your insecurities, but he tried to be a fake chad about it and ruined the point.
>>9850417 Lol where are you getting this gold?
>>9850417> 300 lb pedophile living in squalor with his parents who probably doesn't work outside of "muh commissions" he'll never actually do or will do a shit tier job on at bestFTFY
>>9850417Jesus Christ this is like reading a high schooler's blog post. And I mean Freshman/Sophomore tier high schooler.
>>9850513He does have a job that’s at least part-time hours but he most definitely lives with his parents at age 26. I would love to be a fly on the dining room wall after they see their obese son wobble past with shopping bags full of foam for the third time that week. >>9850564All his posts read like that lol it’s so embarrassing.
lol what in the fuck
>>9850983He got outed too lol
>>9851015This fucking guy lol
>>9851023He’s making himself look all high and mighty but is making a fool out of himself lol
>>9850896Hearing that he actually works is shocking desu. I heard he's a mooch and is really lazy but at least he doesn't lay around all day so that's something I guessHis parents are probably too dead inside to give a fuck anymore
>>9818568I messed up big time not getting one earlier.>To anyone interested.Im willing to pay, if you have space in the room, and very handsomely if you are dropping the room and or meeting all personal requirements. If interested, i can give a throwaway, we can discuss more! :D
>>9851096Oh he’s def still a mooch. Will try to bum badges off anyone, and he owes a ton of money to various people. I think he actually paid his part for his katsucon room with a bunch of strangers, but one of the strangers was a gull and they said he spent most of the time in the room rushing his shitty megaman cosplay, painting layer after layer since he doesn’t know wtf plastidip is and blasting it with a heat gun, making the room smell horrible. Lazy...pic related >flash nonfiction >on the actual topic of colossalconI’m gonna get krunk this year I think. I’ve only heavily drank at a con once (colossal 2 years ago) and it was a blast trying to play Pictionary at one of the panels. Was anyone at that Cosplay Deviants panel or whoever they were that year, or have you seen them elsewhere? Fuckin wild. Makes me feel better about my life.
>>9851247What town does he live in? I could report him to the police. Did anyone message con about him yet with screen shots of him admitting being a pedo?
>>9851428I don't think there's screenshots of it. From what i read, it was him bragging about it verbally. For all we know he could have not done it. Just let the man go to the con, and stay away from him
>>9851428>>9851436The most he has ever admitted is in a post that said something like “mistakes made when I was 21, dumb, and horny” (I would have to dig to get the caps) but he outright refuses to address the issue straight on and flat out say “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” “it’s all a lie here’s the truth” etc. I do agree with second anon and say let him go, as I think doing anything legal involving statuatory rape or whatever is petty at this point. Just don’t let him drink with you lol he’s an egotistical creepy retard.
>>9850417I remember this dude would crap on other people's cosplays because their prop was not completely straight or their overall cosplays were not great to him. Interesting to see others had issues with him.
>>9851625I remember him getting posted last year; people were clowning on his props armor like mad
>>9846196Are you that young fakeboi that did the upward-angle Len ass shot that got shredded in one of the threads (can't remember which one)?>I'm ONLY bringing him because the host ASKED me toGet over yourself desu
Jesus shitting christ when did this con get so expensive? I missed last year and now it's $63 just to pre-reg and $70 at the door for not including the water park or anything. Is this new?
>>9851719>can't buy badge until I get hotel room>post everywhere I can think of>no responsesI may actually be paying for a full badge at the con.
>>9851719>>9851740 It was like this last year in my experienceHonestly, the lower price for the night swim is a fucking blessing>What’s your lineup?Pic related, really happy about this lineup. Simple but fun and easy to put together>How’s cosplay progress going?Just getting started, but shouldn't be an issue>Anything you’re excited about this year?Gaming, partying with my gf and friends, waterpark rides, buying new art>Anything you’re not excited about?Panels, which are always trash>Cosplay Predictions?Expecting to see a lot of Franxx, Nier, Persona and My Hero Academia>What are your hopes for the con?Hope everything room related goes off without a hitch>Thoughts on the two dealers rooms?Interesting, first I've heard of this. mite b cool>What about the rental bins?Doesn't seem like a good idea; using the locker rooms in the swimming area seems to be the better move
>>9851758i am so ready for your lineup and i hope to find you every day
>>9851758>Funky KongYou cosplay him last year too?
>>9852247Hell yeah, thanks>>9852382I did, there was two of us in completely different groups lol
>>9852443Sweet. I was the other one, but it didn't turn out as well as I wanted so I changed to my usual colossal uniform
>>9852756You musta been the one bragging about a one night stand last year huh
Six weeks and change. Who's actually ready?
>>9852756Yeah, I saw your Old Spice, which was great>>9852788That was actually me doing the bragging
>>9852944>>9853020I'm super goddamn ready
>>9852975You are hot so I assumed wrong
>>9812016I'm scrambling to figure out at least one cosplay for the weekend. At this point, I'm mostly excited about getting some time off from work and getting together with friends. Also getting hammered and calling people cucks again.
>>9851704NAYRT but here you go
>>9854022>Calling people cucksDid you get into some shit last Colossal? lol do tell
>>9854123Nah it was two years ago. Some friends and I just drunkenly wandered around calling people cucks or alphas.Also I kept trying to climb the inflatable pirate ship
Did they just rename the Kalahari menu with half-assed anime references
>>9854640>Not drinking the Vegeta
>>98546403 and 10 are literally the same thing
>>9854640>45 oz monster $30that seems excessive
>>9854640Even the Red Bar at Anime Central will give it something less direct. I think one of their drinks was called Blitzedball or some variant of Blitzball.
>>9854797Jesus Christ you're right
>>9854640Time to od off evangelion and akira references
>>9854802Have you never been to the Kalahari? Those drinks are everyone's favorite.
>>9846036Honestly same.I've been stressing about my weight and trying to work out every other day but when it comes down to it we're all getting shitfaced so who cares.>>9846067I'm not that anon but this is really sweet and I hope I get to run into you at the con to highfive you.
>>9854640Who needs that when I'm bringing a keg of fancy beer
>>9854640>>9854797>>9854848I guess Kalahari just saved me $60. I'll stick to making my own alcohol slushies, Kalahari are such bros for this
>>9854934The only value the list has (besides DBZ references hohoho>>9855206I might still try some out; definitely mooching off of my gf's cup instead of buying one though
For anyone without cups: people throw them away all the time for some reason. Take one out of the trash, break the stem off, return to a bar and they'll replace your cup with a new one.It's gross but hey that's $10 you could be spending on more booze.
>>9855734>It's gross butThere are no buts. That's abhorrent.
>>9855818you'll never make it with that attitude
>>9855734bles>>9855818hey i’m willing to save $10 for the cost of very little so catch me digging in the trash cans
How easy is it to find parties at this con?
>>9856151Colossal is a big party con so it shouldn’t be too hard to find some.
>>9856151Villa parties get pretty big Friday and Saturday and most times you can just walk right in. Parties for other rooms you night have to know someone in the there.
PANEL ACCEPTANCE EMAILS ARE OUTDid yours get accepted/cgl/?
ah shit have we entered autosage?
>>9856452Yep, 2 of my panels were accepted!
>>9856578Awesome! Which panels got accepted?
>>9856578Pretty Cure: an underrated magical girl series and history of Hello Kitty
>>9856589Pretty cure: an underrated magical girl series and history of hello kitty
>>9856421Well i hope i meet some new people because i wanna really get shit lit.
My anticipation for this con is the only thing keeping me together.
>>9857041If you try hard enough you'll find us
Oh great my shitty meme panel is on Thursday night and not in the smallest panel room this time
>>9846262to be fair when it comes to asses shape is better than size. Most dude's aint got the dick for truly fat asses anyways.
>>9856151Colossal is basically a geekier version of Spring Break in Florida. I've literally found parties by just shouting "PARTY?" at people
>>9826944The staff are a bunch of pieces of shit, so none of that is remotely surprising.
Anyone else still pricing hotel rooms? My friend just said he's gonna try and come and hasn't looked into a room yet. How fucked is he?
