A thread for all you Canadian seagulls. Here's a list of upcoming cons, copy pasted from the last thread:

Otafest - May 17-19
Anime North - May 24-26
Fanfest - June 1
YetiCon June 14-16
Animaritime - June 28-30
Animethon - August 9-11
Anirevo Summer - August 9-11
Otakuthon - August 16-18
FanExpo Canada - August 22-25
Avalon Expo - September 6-8

Pic is related to the most recent Canadian con afaik, IFF, or International Fan Fest, which was held in Toronto last weekend.

>> No.10155326

1st for gay bathroom party

second for gay bathroom party

>> No.10155375

Wow, thats so pretty. I wish the artists were just as good in my country's conventions.

>> No.10155380

the best part about IFF was the original art. I was really disappointed at the lack of manga vendors. I'm not canadian-- are doujinshi not allowed in canada or something? I didnt see any

>> No.10155384

They are allowed (as long as no stuff like loli) but I don’t think there is a reason for the con to compete with TCAF. It already has a hold on the indep comic market in the gta and is reaching out to known Japanese artists like Inio Asano and Junji Ito. For legal reasons you need to have guests who can legally sell their goods overseas so they are only going to get big names that have publishing contracts anyways, so you won’t see comiket stuff regardless.

>> No.10155467

Work just screwed me over by saying they had overbooked vacation for the summer, so now my plans for ConBravo and Otakuthon have been ruined. Fuck this.

>> No.10155468

>Con Bravo
You won't be missing much, at least I feel that way. Last year's felt really... hollow, if that makes any sense.

>> No.10155483

I go mostly for the tradition and getting to see certain friends. I never really care too much for programming either way.

>> No.10155488

I normally just go to AN and FanExpo since I'm in Toronto, but I've heard a lot of good about Otakuthon. What's the cosplay scene like? Is it worth a trip?

>> No.10155617


>> No.10155631

>as long as no stuff like loli

Well that explains a why there is such a lack of it considering a ton of doujins revolve around animes taking place in high school (Even if they have big fat anime tiddies)

>> No.10155640

Well ConBravo was only good for Saturday anyways. I'm going only on Saturday myself.

>> No.10155643

I've always heard it's basically a French AN but with a way better venue. If nothing else, it might be worth checking out if you know you're gonna take some pics of your cosplay.

I had some problems and now I have no money to go to AN ;_;

No tickets for me, I'm not going this year.

Btw in the last thread I see a discord server, someone have the link?

>> No.10155752

Like I said, I don't care about the programming, so Saturday isn't special to me.

>> No.10155768

Cosplay is good at Otakuthon! It’s a good venue for photoshoots- much better than AN’s. The cosplay might not be as elaborate as AN’s and you see some cosplays being recycled from AN, but I would say a lot less people in casual clothing at Otakuthon.

This whole new 'stand and wait five seconds while a volunteer awkwardly tries scanning your badge' system for Calgary Expo passes is going to be hilariously disasterous. Even on glorified sneak-peak day there were backlog lineups being formed because the scanning was way too slow, it's going to be an utter clusterfuck when the serious crowds turn up and the weather is expected to deteriorate.

What's even the point? It's not like they're verifying your identity when they scan your pass. Half the time I was scanned they couldn't get it to work and just waved me through after a few seconds anyway, so if it's a crowd-tracking thing it seems to be doing an iffy job of that too.

Would any lobbyconners be at the TCC if the event was not going on? No. They are getting free entertainment essentially. It takes time and money to organize the event (even if it is done in a way everyone agrees with) and to grow its name to the point where it is as large as it is.

pretty much the whole experience besides the shitty panels and the dealers room. So like, photo shoots, gawking at costumes, the tent booth outside the convention center that sells kigurumi's and other stuff, room parties, etc.
The delta even tried to limit who could get upstairs to room key holders one year to try and keep the over packed room parties to a minimum. I think it was still called the doubletree back then, but the rule was tossed out the next year because the security at the elevators had no chance and there were far too many complaints.
And the outdoor rave is another big attraction for people who just go to drink and party, you can get in easily if you have a friend to slip you their pass through the fence.
All in all, it's going to keep being this way unless some serious detriments for lobbyconning are put in place. Scan-able wrist bands would be a good start, the kind that break if you try and cut them off, doubled with self scanning in/out gates everywhere and better line procedure.

People organize cosplay picnics for free all the time.

If AN wanted people to buy their badges they'd get better guests and host better panels. Currently they're not incentivizing anyone to spend money on their awfully organized event.

I'm not advocating for sneaking into panels or the TCC. It's better if people don't go inside so the organizers see how empty it is and start to realize how fucking garbage this event is.

AN organizers don't make the experience. The people that show up and cosplay make the experience. They're not getting paid to be there.

>> No.10165148

Yes, and people make free movies on YouTube as well. Doesn't mean that if someone makes one with a much larger budget and effort that needs to be spread across hundreds of people, it should still be free.

Most of the people show up because of the organizers efforts. That's the point here. It's not the ones too cheap or poor to buy badges that contribute to the experience anyway.

>> No.10165173

People show up because at one point the con experience was going to panels to discuss anime with other like minded people. Meeting your favourite voice actor from your favourite anime. Buying bootleg anime dvd's and figures from the dealers room.

The cosplay was just a bonus of those efforts.

Now the panels are all trash, the guests suck, and now people are wise to the counterfeit goods in the dealer's alley. The stuff that is legit you can get for cheaper online anyway.

AN organizers only have to announce a date and people will show up. Everyone seems to agree that they're not providing the things I listed above anymore. So now we're supposed to pay because people work their asses off and spend their own hard earned money to make cosplays? It sounds like AN should be paying the cosplayers for all the effort they're putting in since that seems to be what is drawing so many of these "freeloaders".

Nah let's put up a fence to stop the "freeloaders" from coming. They're the ones ruining the con experience.

Ive been going for over a decade and I still dont have any con friends that I didnt go to highschool with. It comes down to either making your own scene comprised of friends and friends of friends that are all into tue same shit, or wedging your way into an existing crowd because you click with the core memebers. And for all the time anime nerds spend looking down on stuff like frats and country clubs, groups at cons are pretty much the same kind of social club ideology. Usually you get vetted by a person you meet randomly then they bring you in for a trial run to see if the rest of the group likes you. If they don't, you'll know it. If they do, you'll be golden for years to come, but there's always a social hierarchy. Best to set up your own scene/room parties, it might require more effort but you'll be at the core group with your friends and be able to pass judgement on people trying to wedge thier way in for social gains.

>> No.10165305

After that crash a room party or go throw down with stragglers partying outside their cars, or fucking fingerbang a willing participant near one of the overpasses. The point of the con is that it's not only FOR the fans, it IS the fans! It's what YOU make it! Someone once told me that the difference between a boring person and an interesting person is that the latter never ceases to be able to entertain themselves, no matter where they are, so go out and be somebody and have fun with all the other socially inept weeaboo degenerates!

Still feeling a touch wiped out from Otafest. Was bretty fun though, definately finding it more enjoyable than CCEE over the last couple of years. Got some nice sketches of my wife from the charity drive too.

lol, I think I saw you at Rosso the other day asking for a straw for your coffee. That thing looked brutal.

>at least half of them identified as women,
so one has half his body a male and the other female?
so pretty much 5 guys then

no meetup this year?

>> No.10174096

Yeah that was me at Rosso. Hilariously the straw didn't even fucking reach my mouth anyway so I just had to take it off to drink. Need to get myself a big bendy straw or something next time.

Also I definitely agree that it's a lot more fun than CCEE lately. CCEE is getting too big for it's britches and way too hyperfocused on capeshit I think. It's not... the worst I guess but it's certainly lost a lot of its soul and the social aspect of a good con is basically not there anymore because of how crowded and "overproduced" it is.

Nice sketches. Got these three moon dorks from the sketch drive plus some commissions at actual AA.
You looked really good man. Saw you around a few times. Props for the dedication.

Would anyone who is attending Animethon 2019 be interested in joining a cosplay after party orgy? I can guarantee 2 girls will be there if people are interested.

First time congoer here, any tips to identify which vendors are selling counterfeit or low quality goods or 200% marked up merch I can find cheaper online?

They all are, wait to buy on sunday when most things are discounted.

>> No.10175754

Dealers' room is barely a priority. The main thing you want to check out is the Artists' Alley. Just rows and rows of amazing Anime art for sale.
You can take note of stuff you like in the Dealers' room and quickly check Google, Ebay, Alibaba or something like that.
On Friday they do a thing that's basically like a fleamarket. Go there. The last hour (or more like last 30mins? can't remember) people offer huge discounts because they don't want to take the stuff they brought home with them. There's often discounts on Sunday on stuff in the Artist Alley too.

Look buddy no offense but the very idea of the kind of girls who would both engage in an orgy in the first place AND be attending Animethon makes my dick invert into a horrific bloody windsock

For Birdcage san

Post Otafest.... post.
Ramen bar wasn't great. Only came out warm, not piping hot when I got it. Sunday weather was nice, but expected more costumers outside.

Bit of research says it was bought by Informa in 2018. Though I think it was getting super commercialized before then. Did notice a growing amount of unrelated vendors last couple of years. Selling phone shit, insoles, etc.

Fuck the hell no. Tell us how it goes tho. Curious.
Exactly what an organ harvester would say.

Hey I went to NMFT and it was great, probably the best band lineup of the last 1-2 years. I just haven't been on cgl much anymore

>> No.10176630

Wew thanks, been looking for photos of myself basically all week.

Interesting about the comic expo though. I also remember it getting overcommercialized way earlier though. Last time I remember going and enjoying it for more than a glorified merch store is like 2014 maybe. I've even been seeing less and less non-professional cosplayers over the years, although maybe that's just me.

Also sucks about the ramen bar but I ended up just fucking off to Fusion with some friends anyway instead. Pretty sure the lack of cosplayers outside on Sunday was also because there were a bunch of cosplay events and a bunch of the prolific ones were hanging out inside trying to get votes for the contest

Yes. Have pictures of her, and her friend as Panty and Stocking from Medicine Hat last year.

Yeah, I vaguely remember it going downhill in that way. I'd say right around when JNigri was brought in, and cosplay guests became a thing up here. Seemed like only 10-20 percent of people were even costumed the Saturday I went this year.

Aye. Always been a quirk with Otafest, and their king and queen cosplay whatever. Almost like a damn prom. Also, always thought having one dance on Friday was bizarre..

When? where? how? & why?

>> No.10178771

Will do if it does happen but so far it doesn't seem like a lot of people are interested so I don't think it's worth trying to organize anything at the moment.

And no. I am definitely not an organ harvester.

Don't know yet. If I can get around 10 people who are interested in participating then I'll start actually organizing it properly.

But for now here's a rough outline of the "plan".

Probably on the Saturday or Sunday night after Animethon is finished.

Last year it was in a hotel room at Holiday Inn. Hopefully if more people join I might book a bigger place.

What do you mean by how?

Just for fun and to meet new people I guess.
