Any Monster Hunter cosplayers? Would love to get any photos I can with other hunters. I'll be a Zinogre SnS user and I'll probably bring my BBQ spit.
Anyone else bummed about the lack of Japanese lolita guest?
>>9966506no, ageplayers can btfo
I'm hosting 3 panels and ready to die
>>9966414Been planning for this con for a while now. It's going to be my first time going to AWA, but I've heard nothing, but good things about it from my fellow weeb friends so I'm looking forward to it. I just hope I can make the con crunch in time.
>>9966704list panels so the hacker 4chan can crash them :^)
>>9966506Yes, and it's the only reason I'm not going this year. So disappointing.
>>9966506>>9967133they announced some lolita/jfash guests for the fashion show, so you may not be left entirely high and dry just yet.
For whoever's interested in discussing the con, discord link https://discord.gg/6sr6WhTIt's more a northern group but there's a channel for AWA.
>>9966414Hey everyone! For anyone who wants the join there's also a Florida /cgl/ discord as well, I know a good amount of Floridians go to AWA and a good amount Georgians go to Florida cons. So please feel free to join.https://discord.gg/ty79mBZ
>>9967556>>9967633The actual AWA discord is https://discord.gg/mV3vbSDStop whoring out your discords.
>>9967706I have no objections to a north south allliance, but your discord is broke my dude.
>>9967714That is their spam filter. It's late so they likely haven't roled you yet.
>>9967706Hey man, it’s not like you can only be a member to one discord. That and it’s not “whoring out” discords, people do cross state lines to go to cons after all, so it makes sense for people to join other regions discord’s if they frequent that region for cons.
>>9967829Yeah because having 20 discords spamming it up is totally the best efficient thing to do. I mean if you want to be a bunch of little cliquefags gatekeep with your inside jokes that only people in your region get, sure go ahead. But then you should just stay in your region since you totally defeated the purpose of mingling in the first place before you even got off the ground. Fucking discord jockeys are worse than weed heads and their constant need for self-validation by collecting people to stand near them and smell their smoke.
>>9967833You truly sound bitter, the whole purpose of creating a discord is to build a community and connect with people, much like the social aspects of cons. It’s honestly a better environment to do it on than /cgl/ I mean look at this open hostility that you’re giving off with the slightest provocation.But hey, the invites there so you’re free to join, or don’t.
>>9967840>Says they want to build community>Segregate by region>Complains about getting what they wanted after provoking someoneWe got a Nazi here boys!
>>9967851Gorgeous green text mate. If you consider posting a link and explaining my line of reasoning as provocation then I feel sorry for you.
>>9967854>I mean look at this open hostility that you’re giving off with the slightest provocation.A Nazi Gaslighter at that too!
>>9967829>>9967840>>9967854I see you have met the resident SJW's. Don't give them attention, they will just REEEE louder.
>>9967876Thanks man, solid advice. Here’s a nice gif in appreciation
I'm new to Atlanta so this will be my first AWA plus my best friend is flying in from another state to attend! I'm pretty hype. How bad will traffic be driving in every day? I'll be coming from the midtown area.
The embassy and waverley just had a few rooms open up, if anyone has been procrastinating
>>9968408You'll be going opposite traffic mostly, so it's not so bad. There's actually a non-highway road (I think it's called S. Atlanta or something?) you can take to go from midtown almost straight to the convention center if traffic does get bad.The main problem is there's no MARTA stop nearby because cobb county is racist
>>9966506>>9967133Not lolita, but listen flavor was announced.Mossbadger's panels tend to be really great, I don't think the guest announcements are so bad
>>9970321Taking bus route 12 from midtown station drops you right in front of the con center, thought I admit train would be much preferred
>>9968408around town shouldn't be too bad, but come early. Parking will be scarce, and there is a Braves home game set the same weekend.
>>9968408>>9970321He could easily take the marta line up to the medical center, get out call an uber and then go to cobb. It's like 5 bucks.>>9967876This, also don't expect to see them at the con or anything. AWA seems to have a natural repellent to them. So thankful for that
This is my first year volunteering, anyone have any tips that they won't tell you at the meetings? Am I going to regret this and never do it again? It's probably too late for me to change my department but what is the best department to volunteer for?
>>9972427thats the secret of AWA. Its not actually in atlanta. and outside of major cities, that shit doesn't fly in the south very far. They don't get harassed or anything (though they act like they think they are) and tend to just be ignored. maybe filmed.>>9974070>This is my first year volunteering,Like, at any con ever?
hopefully some guest animators or something get announced sometime soon.....
>>9974922Yeah I've been to AWA like five times but I've never volunteered for any con
Will anyone let us stay in their hotel room for free if my gf offers free blowjobs?
>>9975095Until the last 6 words I was considering it.
>>9974070Public safety.You can still change your department as long as everyone is consenting.
>>9974070For awa? Just be aware how many drunk weebs there are and don't break their balls due to it
>>9976036Thank you anon, thank you.
>>9976036Balls get broken equally at AWA
>>9976036Dude. Holy shit you have no idea what I just found. I am looking for disorderly conduct and public drunk arrests in the public records from last year to see if AWA security is a bunch of ball busters and found this. Did this guy rob a hotel room?
Anybody have any idea when AWA tends to get back to us telling us what day/time our panels are going to be?
>>9976258as long as they're not offering to minors or making a public disturbance just let em do their thing.>>9977163Panel schedule will be out soon™
>>9975095What the fuuuuck
>>9975095Your gf can stay, you can sleep outside the room .
still no panel schedule, concern intensifies
>>9975095I would require one from each of you. At the same time.
>>9966506No point to going to an expensive tea w/o a Japanese Lolita brand.
so what's up with the week shift? 3 weeks after dragoncon is eep
>>9984191Those were the only dates available? EY and Home Depot con had the same shift.
>>9967145They announced Puvithel as the main fashion guest. She is not even a "B' Indie designer. What a waste.
Number of Japanese guests this time is pretty disappointing overall. No producers or writers or anything either.
>>9985011Seriously. There isn’t even a single animator or director or anything
>>9984514>>9983977Well if the lolita's weren't a bunch of uppity bitches last year, maybe they would have got some. But because the models were a bunch of cunts to the designers, no one wants to come anymore. Seriously, all you did was whine and complain about the price so now the JP's are like, fuck this shit, why go to the US for tea parties when we can do it at home with people more grateful.
>>9985062they just announced the brands for the fashion show. Mossbadger, A. Gato Designs, Puvithel and 50% Dangerous. Yawn!!! No way am I modeling again!
>>9985062This is my first year going to AWA. What happened last year? I guess there was some drama?On an unrelated note, does anyone know if there is still going to be a tea party, even though there won't be a Japanese brand guest?
>>9985582is the reason why they don't want to come >>9985843
Anyone know why AWA doesn't have an early registration benefit like Dcon or Momocon, both of which offer discounts for early registration.Kinda miffed that I'm paying $70 for a mid tier con..
>>9984514"main fashion guest" hahaha
>>9986343If they did what they did last year - You can buy next years badge for $40 AT the con, or very shortly after. It goes up the closer to the con it gets. I paid $68 for my pre-reg about a month~ ago.
>>9986710wth i didn't notice this last year..Did they introduce this like a few weeks after the con ended!? I didn't see it at all, but now I'm looking at the site and there are more pre reg options with discounts..
Whomstve is ready to be squad-ing up as 2hus at this con?
>>9984514>Mossbadger and Listen Flavor announced as main guests ages agoAnon did you even read the announcement
Personally I'm pretty bummed about the Spyair/Rookiez is Punk'd concert being on Sunday... it was a big reason I'm going and I'll have to leave the center by 4 to catch my flightWho the fuck schedules a concert like this on a Sunday? Come on guys
The tea party is going to be a j-fashion mixer, and the theme is pastel goth.
>>9984514>>9985062To add to this, the lolitas that attend are cheap and don't buy enough brand to make it worth it.
How quiet is Thursday usually? Trying to decide if it's worth not going into work that day or not... Definitely not working on Friday, of course.
>>9987491Super happy fun sale is worth going too, I've always found something there but not worth missing out on work. Especially if you rather make money. It starts late though if you can go after work.
>>9987491Bretty quiet, not worth taking off, unless you have peeps you just chill with.I work/live like 2 miles away so I just go on Thursday after work to pick up a badge and just look around for a few hours.
>>9986794its been that way for since like AWA 4...
>>9987384God fucking dammit AWA...
>>9987545You obviously don't know about the Overlord Orgy if you don't take work off on a Thursday.
>>9987334People that have better sense then you to schedule your flight so early on a Sunday. Smart people would reschedule their flight
>>9987678It's late enough that I shouldn't have had to miss anything. I don't have experience with that airport so I don't know how the security lines are. Can't reschedule without a fee that I can't afford. No other con I've been to has done a big event like this on a Sunday before so why should I have expected it? I'm not really angry with them I'm just disappointed that it didn't work out for me.
>>9987644>>9987384Teas been announced finally. Doesn't look 'pastel goth' to me.
>>9987941I really think the pastel goth thing was an asspull. I spoke with an organizer at momocon and they said something about last year costing too much. And also that they needed a cheaper guest. So just make the teaparty include general jfash to get more ticket sales I guess...
>>9986343Considering they're hurting so bad that they're forcing photographers to pay a fee just to take pictures...its gonna keep going up.You can thank the amazing city of Atlanta and Cobb county for being so gracious and building a god damn baseball stadium right next door for inflated parking and hotel fees.
>>9966506You can literally blame Andrea for that... I heard from someone on staff Baby literally wouldn't come back if she was involved. Yes I know she's not anymore but I think she probably put a bad taste in a lot of folks mouths with regards to AWA period. Hopefully time will heal all wounds but she's done plenty to ruin the local comm.
We are now a week and change out and no schedule yet. Shitshow con incoming?
>>9988251Dragoncon doesn't have their schedule out more than a week in advance. Why should I expect AWA to?
>>9987817then, do you think Sundays at a con should only have shit for events?
>>9988251I've heard that the schedule is done but has only been given to panelists so far but it should officially be out soon
>>9988128The photopass is because of the hotel and convention center's vendor policies. Just taking casual hall snaps doesn't cost, it's if you want to be able to charge money to take other people's pictures.Now, the damn stadium *is* the reason for the galleria now charging $5/day for parking.
>>9989003I mean $5 isn't bad but what about the parking near the hotel front/offices, that's where I usually park, i can't imagine how they're going to charge for it, they don't have any systems set up..
>>9989098This just seems so lazy. The theme is pastel goth and they couldn't even make the poster reflect that? Really??
>>9989098This seems dumb. Why is it not a tea party? I'm guessing because there's no real lolita guests? AWA is a mess and I'm glad I haven't gone since 2015.>The dress is more casual than at a formal tea party but should still be representative of one of the many styles of J-Fashion.What is the point of dressing casually at a con event, particularly for j-fash? If you're a lolita, in particular. Again, the casual dress reflects the guests but it ruins the atmosphere and excitement of an event like this. >pastel gothWhat... That's not a theme, that's, like, a sub-style/color palette? Very limiting. A theme be more interpretive and broad.
Anyone know about the policies with bringing cooking equipment (stove + coolers) to set up outside?
>>9990871 Make sure it is not a pressure cooker. Shit can be used for bombs
>>9989419>>9990782Look at all the littles mad because the Japanese don't want anything to do with their filthy kink. >>9990871The fire department comes and sprays you with the hose. No I am not joking. Some kid in 2014 thought he could cook in the garden with his grill and they came and sprayed his shit across the veranda.
>>9991740I imagine the fine was hefty. Welp there goes my cosplay out the window.I gotta figure something discreet so it wont be such an obvious fire ordinance hazard
>>9991740>Look at all the littles mad because the Japanese don't want anything to do with their filthy kink.Not sure what you even mean by this b8
never been to a con, ive been thinking about going next week tho
>>9991760I mean unless you actually start cooking, they are not going to bother you. This guy was cooking fucking steak.
>>9991918I want to cook steak :(
5th annual /CGL cosplay meetup!Going to be hosting Saturday. Will meetup in the lobby around 1pm and go get lunch at the cheesecake factory as the usual...Sorry I didn't get this together last year, I was out of state for work!How's that time work for everyone?
>>9992065Yay the person with initiative is back. 1PM is a bit early though, I'll really try to make it.
>>9991909do it faggoteven if you don't go to panels hanging out with friends is fun
>>9992065Lobby of the convention?
>>9992472not her but in previous years we met in the registration area..
https://awa-con.com/events/awa-2018-schedule/schedule is out
>>9992762What are you guys thinking of doing? After a quick scroll through there aren't really any panels catching my eye.
>>9992472Meeting in the registration area, right next to weapons check
>>9974070yo imma be real with you, were short people for the video rooms.
>>9992065I would prefer a later time but I will try my hardest to make it!!
>>9994134ay yo same here, can we vote for like 2:30PM or something
1pm is a bit early, but if thats how the south rolls then sure
>>9994134How's 4pm then?
>bought prereg tickets already>still have no way of getting tickets to the con>not old enough to rent a car>flights are too expensive>already made plans with people for stuff to do at the con
Open invitation. Find me on Fri or Sat for free shades, while supplies last. Your hint? Look for the guy carrying lots of spatulas.
>>99943254pm sounds good. Also depends on when people really want to eat and how crowded it'll be
>>99943254 is great!
>>9994325I don't care either way. 4pm then instead of 1pm? I'm bringing a few friends from other boards, the time doesn't matter itself as long as it doesn't change.
>>9994325woo 4PM is great. Also how does everyone feel about pic related?Personally I really like it because I'm a local and it spreads out Momocon - Dcon- AWA.
>>9995073Why'd they change the time so much?
>>9995088prolly cuz they were getting fucked with the new Braves Stadium nearby doing busy shit
>>9995073I'm local too but I skip DC, so that part is negligible to me. I'm not super fond of the timing because I like doing normalfag activities and dress-up on Halloween. I will say I love weeby Halloween stuff though.>>9995088According to their Facebook,>Why is AWA moving dates?>Our current dates are very close to another large local convention (starts with a D and rhymes suspiciously with Gragon Bon). At the current schedule we are following with the hotel, we would end up only a few days after by 2020, which probably wouldn't be a fantastic plan for our attendees, vendors, organizers, and volunteers.>Back when we started AWA, the con was held at the end of October. We're going back to our roots a little bit with this move - and also won't be conflicting with any other major cons in the south, hopefully giving more people an opportunity to enjoy the once in a lifetime debuts of musicians, artists and voice actors that we regularly bring to Atlanta.
48 hours remain
>>9966415update on this post, there are currently two spots available but someone just said they might make it.if you got two people you'll get precedent though ;)
>>9994370You are a idiot who can't plan
>>9992065>5th annual /CGL cosplay meetup!>>Going to be hosting Saturday. Will meetup in the lobby around 1pm and go get lunch at the cheesecake factory as the usual...>>Sorry I didn't get this together last year, I was out of state for work!>How's that time work for everyone?4pm it is then. Same meeting spot outside Reg on Saturday. See you there!
>>9995073My only gripe is figuring out trick or treating stuff with my kid when Halloween falls on the weekend will be a bit tricky, aside from that I like the change. Cooler weather will mean I won't die in heat as much in my cosplays.>>9995425Aw man that falls in the middle of something I can't get out of. I'll catch the tail end of the meet if I can though!
>>9995284an *>>9995238alright just one spot left
>>9995425Is marshmello welcome?
>>9995757Halloween is on a Thursday that year - And since much doesn't go on Thursday, You could still do it. I can't speak for anything beyond 2019 though.>Cooler WeatherA-fucking-men. That will be nice.
The staff appear to be exceptional sperglords for this events. Does anyone know if this is just an awa thing or if it extends to atlanta cons in general?
>>9995425>>9995757We will be meeting and then headed to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch, same as we've done in years past. If you want to come late you can meet us there!
>>9996060what's spergy about them. i mean you're dealing with people that gave up their free time so they wouldn't have to pay for a $50 pass..
Real cute 002 just brapped.
Wanted to go but couldn’t cause my job denied me leave. Hope it’s fun out there.
Hey if any gulls see me strolling around I've got some free pins! I'll be cosplaying mr foster or fenneko and have a pin on myself
Im just going Saturday afternoon, do you still have to have a pass to get into the artist alley? Do I have to bribe my way into it again? I havent been in a while
>>9997218Yeah you do need a pass
Reminder that the meetup is today at 4pm near reg. Going to be Poe Dameron so you can look for me!
We're just outside reg, posted up. Look for 2hu, autists, and grandpa Dante.
How was fashion show?
Poe is headed towards reg now
Mister anon who suggested the time and location, where art thou?
Alright. Group is headed to the cheesecake factory. Look for the weirdos, walk ins welcome
>>9997280make sure to take pics
Cheesecake said 3 hour wait for a group our size so we at food court next door
>>9996060Dragoncon staff was chill as fuck this year and it was also in Atlanta.
We touhou shoot now
I decided to go to AWA this year locked in my chastity cage. Wow, do I ever regret my decision. looking at all these sexy hot women in their cosplays is driving me insane...
can you still sneak into the late night events or no
>>9997672....how old are you
Can whoever took the meet up Pic post it?
what's everyone up to tonight?
The secret panel needs to be purged with fire.
>>9997505I thought it was pretty fun, but I'm vkei trash. There were a lot of performances this year
>>9998003What was it?
>>9998010People who shouldn't be naked getting naked.
>>9998032Is that the burlesque show?
>>9997639I chose the worst year to forget AWA exists, anon. 2018 gave us BNHA S3, Cells at Work, Franxx, and a whole slew of other series with 10/10 waifus. Seeing all these cosplay sluts posting their Camie, 02, etc costumes has me fucking diamonds.There's always next year. Head to the gym, bulk-up, and prepare your cosplay(s) extra early. That way you can enjoy the con and any pussy you come across and want.
Tfw no klaxosaur princess gf to gib steppies
This con has the fattest and ugliest cosplayers in all the major cons. Must be the southern diet.
>>9998205is it not like this everywhere?Momocon/Dcon/AWA have fucked my expectations for what is a normal weight.
>>9998251>>9998205Seeing how out of shape everyone was while wearing swimshits at Colossalcon East legitimately made me feel better about my body tbqh.
>>9998115No. Much worse.
So how was everyone's con?
What actually occurred at the secret con? Everyone is posting feet pics on the app.
shout out to the Dante from the meetup that gave me an extra monster on Friday they ran out before I could get to the tent.
Sauce on the secret panel?
post dealer hauls
>>9998378Just some late night panel where they played dirty sex-themed games. I don't see why someone in here got so triggered about it.
the facebook group is going crazy about rampant theft this weekend. A diabetic person even had his insulin, wallet, and keys stolen so it unironically could have been fatal. How is the org going to deal with it?
>>9998378Just go next year. They list it in the schedule. It’s not really “secret”
>>9998406move away from Georgia and the south next year?
>>9998406theft from where.
>>9997894colors are a bit washed out in that version for some reason, lemme try posting one
>>9998251Nope, i've been to cons NE, and texas, Chicago, and west coast. The south cons has the least fit people besides cosplayers.
>>9998205welcome to georgia
>>9998406How is the org going to deal with it? They aren't. People need to stop being such fucking airheads in space and look after their stuff. stop relying on other people to watch your shit you fucking sheep.
>>9998389It wasn't just "dirty sex games" it was a creepy old dude trying to be edgy and thots just being gross.
>>9998435I saw the post about the person getting their bag with meds being stolen, It was over an hour old and I was around 3 LP people dealing with some roommate drama, I asked them if they heard anything and they said they hadn't and people need to stop posting on the FB group BEFORE going to staff... But they could've just been saying that.I wonder if most of it was people being stupid / careless about their items and trying to blame other people. only thing I did over the weekend was die in a black suede costume, Get stepped on by a 2b and Eve cosplayer, meet Kira buckland, Kyle McCarley and Ray Chase.
>>9998449>Old dude being edgyas opposed to teenagers and 20 year olds being edgy?
Maid cafe can do better. Why are all the VIPs white girls when there are SO MANY poc maids?
>>9998459is the maid cafe worth?I didn't even bother checking this year since previous years it was just hambeasts. It's why I gave up on all stupid late night panels with 3Ds in them. Just fat chicks.
>>9998460>incel whining about "SJWs"why should we care about this?
>>9998460Oh no, some faggot on the internet is mad! I really give a shit.
>>9998466There were probably four or five really cute girls (two were the AWA mascots and the rest general) but yeah the rest were hambeasts
>>9966414I don't remember it being this crowded after midnight on any of the days a couple years ago; Thursday at 2am this year felt like Saturday at 2am then. I missed my comfy Thursday night quiet where I could walk around and check out the decorations. The Waverly is so fucking accomodating compared to other venues I've been to. Anyway sad to make this long drive back to Orlando and the con depression's hitting a little hard this year
Being locked in my chastity cage the entire time at AWA was really intense. All of the sexy cosplay girls always had me thinking: "I wonder what she would say if she knew my little cock was locked up?"
>>9998494Chastity dude here. I was thinking about doing the Maid Cafe just to see some sexy pieces of ass in their maid outfits and driving me insane as I throb in my cage, but hearing that they're hamplanets makes me happy that I didn't waste my time and my money.
>>9998484I love the Waverly. It's getting abit too small for the con, but I love the place. It's so comfy. It was hella busy all weekend - But we ALL know that AWA staff are gonna exaggerate the numbers to make it look like they grew alot.
There was apparently a group of thieves stalking through the Dealers' Hall this year picking up and running off with bags. My friend left some merch next to a booth, the lady took it to keep hold of it until he came back, a guy approached her, told her he knew our friend, and offered to return it. We talked to security, and the guy said this same guy was reported several times, was probably in a group, and had stolen around $400 of goods based just off how it went down with my friend. We got a photo of the guy, and apparently he's been a known nuisance. Last we saw of it, security had boxed his group while staff went around showing photos to the vendors that saw him run off with the bag to confirm it was him. Hopefully, according to security, they'll be posting an announcement online that they recovered stolen goods, and to contact them with a description of the goods.>>9998373A really boring sex themed game show where they had staff members patrolling the aisles to kick anyone who so much as had a phone in their hand out.
>>9998508Haha, yeah. I guess you're right. Oh well, I'll stick with a much more embarrassing fantasy playing out rather than a simple "why?".
>>9998451At least two people who got their shit taken literally posted in their bitching topics that they left the item that got taken alone.
>>9998421Sorry to any gulls I wasn't able to get a pin to. Running on 3 hours of sleep makes it super easy to forget things
>>9998511While it still doesn't give someone a right to take someones shit - They should've known better than to leave their stuff unattended. Especially at a con with 30k+ people.
My haul (A few things missing)
What happened on Thursday in main hall where there was emt's and stuff around a dude on the stairs? someone trip and bust up a ankle? Also AWA was pretty chill.. was in a hotel a few minutes away from battery park that was really chill and quiet, minus either shuttling or driving back and forth I had a good time, will be back next year
apparently some dude tripped out super hard in the food court on Sat night and was staggering about and mumbling gibberish and then tried to attack someone else? and got tased and tackled by the police. A person in my roomshare was describing it like some deleted world war Z scene
THEY ARE MAKING THE GARDEN PHOTOPASS MEMBERS ONLY NEXT YEAR! WHAT DID YOU RETARDS DO TO PISS OFF THE PEOPLE THAT OWN THE GARDEN!?
>>9999110I think someone shit in the fountain???
>>9998838I was tempted by that parade poster. It was really cute.
>>9999102Yeah he took acid.Meanwhile some chick passed out in the hotel lobby floor and staff were being very quiet and slow around her so I don't think she was in danger.
>>9999130my group and I posed over this passed out guy with some drunk japanese vendor.This was just outside the rave and a police officer was wandering about outside and we asked him about it and he said it wasnt his responsibility and to ask con security about it.
>>9999110fucking hell really? did a staff member say something about it?
>>9999167No I work in the building and unheard my manager works for the property management said they just talked to the management at AWA and offered to let them reserve the garden for some dough. Then they asked who these photographers they saw wearing photopass badges, like the idea and said make it only them allowed in to do photo so if they damage something, they know who it is.
>>9999175Can you explain parking at the fucking offices if you work nearby.Are they enforcing that or not, i heard risks of towing but no one got shit..
>>9999181Property owners decided to open it on Saturday. There is no enforcement. Property owners got their money and didnt give a fuck who was going to what.
Posting cutest cosplay QT from awa.Also the chie from the girls came! Panel is a close second for best girl
>>9999339If you wanted to self post you could have just said so anon
>>9999339>the one to the rightyikes
>>9999403I thought she was pretty sexy too desu.... So much skin
>>9999387I am a man and not a cute fox tail girl unfortunately.... :(
>>9998993I think I heard the guy hit his head or something? Doubt they would bring in EMTs for a busted up ankle
>>9999605Kid hyped up on drugs
>>9998373Yea from what I was told it was people getting masturbated on stage while answering trivia? Everyone in the audience was allowed to be as naked as they wanted. It just sounds cringy and nasty as hell.
>>9999128It's actually a playmat. I'm using as a mousepad because why not.
>>9999614Found the prudish no fun wall flower.
>>9999614>Go to a panel where it's laid out at the start exactly what's gonna happen >Dipshit here stays despite not liking it >Complains afterReally makes you think
>>9999640Lol not him/her but if the majority of the audience/'performers' weren't obese maybe it would be neat
>>9999645I’m just repeating what I was told. I had no idea that panel was even a thing until I heard it second hand. I did hear a few staff members as well express their disgust in it. But, yea if you feel that way get out. It’s not my thing either, but if they feel like it belongs there, there’s not much atendees can really do.
>>9999614Can anyone confirm this happened? >>9999614
>>9999721my friend went. He described it as fat men sitting on vibrators in the nude while intentionally answering questions wrong to have them turned up, and 1 obligatory roastie doing the same.
>>9998379do you happen to know the artist's name for the dabi/toga print?
>>9998522How much did all that cost?
>>9999733I went and thats basically what happened. There were like two girls up on stage and the fat bitch kept faking an orgasm for attention.Aside from that the panel was just a big let down because so many people in the line hyped it up saying if its anything like last year I wont be ready for it. Then it just ended up being an average day on the internet with try hard edgelords prepping you for shit.I mean you even had to sign a liability waiver for physical harm going in to the panel. I was ready for some shit and then bam. Just disappointment galore.
>>9999745Someone stole the electric shock device before the show.
>>9999739zzy zzyyall those prints are from him
>>9999827thanks, found his site. His art is gorgeous
>>9999733>RoastieAnon you should probably reconsider being friends with an incel
Any of you boys go to manime and see the dude get a trashcan thrown at his head?
>>10000068I am actually the guy who got hit lmao, do you have pic or video of it?
How many ochakos would yall estimate there was
>>10000265How many good ones @[email protected]
>>10000355>@[email protected]Lurk more newfriend
>>10000079I recorded the 12 men laws and i got the thud in the background but that's it. Nigga i saw your ass earlier when the guy had the plot and backstory sign.
Where did the secret panel take place?My friend said he went but wasn't allowed to tell me. He just said it was full of nude obese jerking off.
it was where that super fun sale thing was and the people in lane in-front and be hide me where staff member trying to hype it up and hitting this girl i am about 90% sure was autistic so i just left when they started letting people in 1 hour later the line was still signing wavers
>>10000535Lol it was nothing..It was in the big massive room near registration. It was just a bunch of fat people being naked, there was one kinda hot chick tho. I wouldn't have minded because there was one actually decent chick but it was so boring and poorly executed..
>>10000552Were they legit naked on stage? Tits and everything? Fat or not seems pretty good
I was on drugs the whole time
>>10000816I was on shrooms when I got smashed with the trashcan lmao
>>10000871Are there pics up somewhere from the Friday Fate meet?
Anyone get any autographs? Normally i don't like autographs, but i bought the dvd on Sunday to just spend the last bit of cash i had, still had like $40 left and as i was walking around i saw the Steve blum was signing in like an hour.Decided to pop into the small line that was already there, i had nothing better to do anyways.
>>10000957Also after that i had no money left and the entire time i was in line i saw that grey griffin's line was practically empty the entire time. I went over afterwards told her i had no money for an autograph, just wanted a fist bump. She stopped me to talk for a minute. Genuine good person though, usually i see actors cringe when people want to hug them at cons, she made sure to hug everyone that came up to her.
>>10000955I will upload a set later! Check back here.
>>10000962Kira Buckland, Kyle Mccarley and Ray Chase are the only ones I got autographs from.
>>10000795Yeah full blown naked, penis and vag hanging out in full display
>>10001027It's so crazy to think that Rina-chan is a pro VA now. It's like if Chris-Chan got a job at Marvel or something.
>>10000967photos*app*goo*gl/ add the following onto this with no spaces wjwPGcwvBXpvP5bT9Need to use strange format to bypass spam filter * =. There you go!!
>>10001137I think NieR is mostly why she got as popular as she is now.
>>10001137how could runka chunk pull it off
>>10001137>It's like if Chris-Chan got a job at Marvel or somethingI'm 99% certain that Marvel's America (2017) was ghostwritten by Chris Chan. The dialogue is uncannily similar.
So how much budget did you set aside or how much did you spend? It was pretty tough limiting myself to only $100 for the dealers room
>>10001139Thanks dude, now time to see how bad I look! (But seriously thanks, I've been itching to see these.)
>>10001190Which cosplayer were you if you don't mind me asking?
>>10001182I spent about $900 the whole weekend.
>>10001173>Runka ChunkI'm assuming you don't like Kira?
>>10001195I was the Shinjuku Saber Alter. I was also Dress of Heaven Ilya on Saturday but I ended up showing up to the shoot location half an hour after it ended.
>>10001212Fat with an unfortunate face
>>10001216Post your picture
>>10001201This was her nickname back in the day. God we're getting old.
>>10001233don't be triggered that you're fat and ugly
>>10001212That point of contact for the stockings though.... Hnnng. Are you accepting sex applicants for next year?
>>10001201I have no hard feelings about her anymore, but I still call her runka chunk because it's fun to say
>>10001216It's kinda hard to see the separation between the tank and hoodie I'm sure. I have more pics but you'd probably get confused about them all.
https://youtu.be/uORHFa_aE8gI make a compilation every year if anyone is interested. Also if anyone got a pic of my kids please share, my kids went as the dragonborn and umaru on Saturday and platelets on Sunday
>>10000962Yeah when I went to her she had no line and I was like??? because Dante Basco had a line and they were side by side.But she was nice and took a picture with me even though I didn't pay for one. I only had money for a sig on my comic.
>>10001676Thanks for this video! Very nice. Which cosplay Was your favorite?
I fucked a froppy cosplayer in the men's bathroom in the lobby area.
It's been a long while since I've been to one of these. I plan to make one before 2020 since I also have family here. Overall, from the panels to the guests, was it really better or worse than last years AWA?
>>10001139The guy with the googly-eyes cracks me up. Pretty creative.
>>10001694I'm a sucker for 90s references like quail man and power line. But this year I have to give it to the Napa with the spot on Team 4 Star impression.
>>10001182Withdrew $200 cash and spent $180, and only charged $80. I was actually looking to burn more money but I think $260 is definitely on the lower end of what I've spent at cons. I'm regretting not spending some to get autographs (although that would require more investment because I'd need things to get signed in the first place...)
>>10001182I spent like nothing.. I can never find anything in the dealer's room worth justifying. I've found figurines online for half the price so I can't trust anything anymore..I'm not ready to give up on life enough to get to the point of putting weeb posters/scrolls all over my house.
wanted to fuck that shiny yuuri cosplayer at the con but missed my chance
are there any regulars that go yearly or anyone who knows they'll go next year here?
>>10001941i live like 4 miles away so yeah I'm going next year for certain
>>10001941Been going every year since 2002. Not going to stop anytime soon.
>>10001941I know there are several of us who live in/near Atlanta and attend AWA annually.
>>10001941I live like 3 hours away, i have a friend who had an apartment like 5 minutes away but his roommate left him and he couldn't afford it on his own. So now i have to find a place to stay from now in. Also how much is it to stay in a bigger room in the waverley itself? I'm thinking about smuggling like 12 people into one room next year.
>>10000957I got Kanae Itou to sign my Haruko Ichikawa art book. It sucks that I came back from the con to learn they announced a steel book blu-ray, but I think the spacing of the art book made it more visually appealing to get autographs for individual characters. I'm hoping to fill out the spaces overtime with the odd seiyuu coming stateside.
>>10001972If you get a suite, the max you can really do without serious discomfort is about 8. 2 per double bed, a pullout couch for 2(or 2 couches depending on the room), and various single air mattresses/cots.I wouldn't push for more, you're just asking for pain. But the cost isn't too much more. its just a question if you can get one. It only has 24 suites, and I think the con itself holds about half of them
>>10002022First of all my friends and i don't care about how crowded it'll be, we crammed 9 people into a 5 seat Honda and took a 2 hour trip to Savannah before.
>>10001941I've been attending regularly, but the date change really fucks me because now it's on the same date as other cons I go to
>>10002052G-good for you?
>>10002139Out of State cons? As far as I know, AWA is the last big convention for GA. (Theres a few small ones, and like Atlanta Anime day)
>>10002197Yeah, out of state ones but it's still a real bummer. I vend at cons for a living but AWA is the one all my friends are at so it's one of the few fun ones I get to go to ): sales are a lot better at one of the others though so I likely won't be able to come back to awa
>>10002213yeah, driving to atlanta takes a fair while and the venue moving dates put me and my friend's yearly schedule at odds with it,and I don't think I can justify 3x the cost when I have a local con with more friends a week apart.
>>10002052Anon, how poor are you that you try to pretend that shit like that is comfortable? That's the kind of shit I would do in high school to save $20 which really isn't worth it to me now
>>10001727Very nice. How did you pull it off?
>>10002327anon, how lonely are you that you try to pretend that shit like that isn't fun and enjoyable? sorry you don't have lasting friendships
>>10002341>being uncomfortably crammed in a car with a bunch of people is funmaybe if you're a masochist
>>10002341I prefer hanging out with my large group of friends at the con and parties rather than with all of us dangerously stuffed over capacity into a car and with three people to a bed or on the floor at our hotel room at night.
>>10001941I've gone to every AWA for the last 8 years
>>10002345>>10002349live life on the edge, sorry u don’t have friends :,(
>>10002430I have friends, doesn't mean i want them to be pressed up against me in a cramped vehicle for hours at a time or be in an overcrowded room with them. sorry you're too poor to afford space
>>10002052probably weren't all fat
>>10002430Based and redpilled
kek @ u losers falling for obvious bait
>>10001676Your kids are adorable!
>>10002327Honestly i have enough to get a room in my own, but my friends depend on me to help pay for rooms and shit.
pre reg is out for next year. it starts at $60, oof>>10002537https://platelets.fun/
>>10002762Momocon's prereg was $50.. wtf
Is there seriously no good way to find the name of artists in AA after the con? I remember roughly where they were but there's no map with names and the app isn't helpful at all.
>>10002762Jesus thats alot for early bird pricing, and thats going to increase over time right?
>>10003054This is why I try to grab business cards - The apps are never helpful... Good luck, anon.>>10002762Alot of people are saying it's BS that it's this high, while the other half is saying it's because AWA is planning more stuff, more guest, etc next year - Since it's further out from D*C, They claim to have better / more guest, vendors, etc...We'll see.
>>10002213How'd you get started vending? I sell stuff on the side and make decent profit vs the time invested. Always wanted to sell at a con
>>9998838Anon, i'm glad you like the wallscroll Made us laugh that she signed the thigh.
To those who have been attending AWA for years, how did this year rank? Best ever, worst ever, or somewhere in-between?
>>10003117Been going for the past 4 years.Felt very samish to me. It's not like Momocon which is seeing tangible growth every year. It's not bad either.
>>10003117I've been going for 4-5 years now. This year was the most fun I've ever had there but I couldn't really pinpoint why....Maybe because the panels were just really funny this year idk.
>>10003108She asked me where I wanted it signed - She said oh! I'll sign here thigh and made some comment about 2bs thighs (I can't remember what she said, I was abit star-struck)
>>10003122The only thing I don't like about Momocon, Isn't even their fault.. It's how frustrating the CNN Centre is. I understand it's a major news network, and security is a thing.. but ugh.I think AWA could benefit from moving to the GWCC - Plenty of space their.. Just hotel issues. I think the omni has way more rooms, I think the Waverly is only about 500, Where as the Omni has almost around 1100 rooms.
>>10003186if they moved downtown, the ticket cost would have to go up which is why they refuse too.
>>10003196It's already going up... Within the next few years it's going to be up there with D*C. They also have a contract until 2020 with the Waverly / Cobb Galleria. But they've outgrown it, There isn't anymore usable space in that area for AWA to expand.
>>10003186I've heard of a lot of weird CNN issues.The funny thing is that I have personally have never had an issue and have walked in with my Law sword without issue for the past 3 years.It's mildly annoying to work around but I would have someone watch your props if it's an issue.
>>10003205I was cosplaying 9s from NieR, I had my visor on, but it was pulled up so I could see, it was barely covering my face and I got yelled at to leave.. I had my sword, Which is made out of nerf.. Got asked to leave. A Friend of mine had body paint, got asked to leave (which I kinda understand)But Momocon can't control them, so it's not their fault. I also got tired of chanting "FAKE NEWS!" as well.
Just curious, did anyone go to the edgy oc battle? I know >>9994403 was there because i got my glasses from him.
>>9999721Here's as brief a breakdown as possible. It was very slow and stupid and we left like halfway through because by then it was nearly 5AM. Con staff/volunteers were overhyping the panel/line about how you need to sign a waiver. Waiver only prohibits recording. They opened up with a half cringy half funny powerpoint about what the panel will cover. The stage is split in half. On the left half are about a dozen people in all. Half are dicks out naked and wearing pasties and the other half are clothed people painting murals on their bodies. Other half was the game show with three nudish people sitting on stools with vibrators and they were turned up regardless of whether the answer was right or wrong. There was one edgy dominatrix half heartedly whipping a volunteer from the crowd who was in the stool game. Also a comical porn lawyer reminiscent of the Ig Nobel's NSFW indicator. The crowd was encouraged to get naked but not touch other naked people and honestly it wasn't worth the lost sleep, but I'm old so if that's your cup of tea go for it next year.
>>10003726>Crowd encouraged to get naked>At a con full of people who don't know basic hygiene or seem to forget that weekendWhat was the smell like in there, anon? I bet it was probably as bad, if not worse than some of the game rooms.Good thing I didn't go.
>>10003740>>10003726Sounds pretty sweet desu. But I'm an exhibitionist. If I started consensually fucking in the crowd would it have been an issue?
>>10003832dont stain the seats
From the VKS shoot on Saturday. Probably the only decent looking one there.
>>10004082>>10004081>>10004084I hope someone gave her that good D that night...
>>10004079>>10004081>>10004082>>10004084what compels grills to do this might as well just be a thot poster on instagram.
>>10003122Going to the GWCC and being mugged by christian con next door is not tangible growth you fucking shill.
>>10004312Who cares, it's great. Just enjoy the booty and stop judging
>>10004084I Want to cum on her feet and have her leave foot prints in the venue
>>10004430i'm confused what
Someone post more cosplay pics to keep the thread alive.
Here are a few of the 10 people in the world that actually played drakengard 3
>>10005498I didn't really take many pics over the weekend.
Anyone get a picture of the Blend S girls? I saw 3 or 4 Maikas but only one was cute.
>>10005513Are you scared of semen demons?

>>10006924That will double as a great Halloween costume too
Don't die yet I'm not ready to let go ;_;
>>10005491i think i met her at blaze pizza on sunday after the con. she seems like a nice person too, just sayin'
>>10005491>>10005690i think i met her at blaze pizza on sunday after the con. she seems like a nice person too, just sayin'

>>10008777Very good to hear.
>>10008777Does she have a Twitter or Instagram?
>>10005453I think that's Laffi Love Cosplay as Kei. Not sure who's cosplaying Yuri.I really wish I could have gotten some pictures of them. I was able to get some pics of Laffi as Lynn Minmei from Macross though.
