Same here. I'm going anyway just because I go every year, but that new venue is so annoying. I still don't know if I'm commuting or getting a hotel room. I don't want to pay an extra 300+ just because A-Kon decided to switch up the venue CITY with no warning.

It's a smaller con, but it has all the basics and is really good for seeing friends and doing beach photoshoots, if that's your thing. Don't expect top-quality quests or anything, but it's fun and inexpensive. Last year was one of the best yet.

>The Anatole has such shitty service.
I was there the first year Akon moved there and all the rooms had their hairdryers, extra blankets, extra towels and wash clothes, ice buckets, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, and kleenex boxes removed and that fucking bullshit room still cost $750 for 3 nights. I understand why all that was removed but when I needed a hairdryer (because you know, its the Anatole and its costing alot so hey I figure theres gonna be a hairdryer and I dont bring mine) and I went to the front desk to request one and they were rude to me and treated me like shit over it. They were unprofessional and douchebags to you even if you were polite and explained what was going on.
Fuck them I hope their waterpark fails.

Pretty frustrated with the Ft Worth switch. I'm in Garland/NE Dallas, 50 miles away from the FWCC. I am not commuting, nor do I want to uber back and forth from a hotel not in walking distance of the convention. I don't want to fight for a hotel reservation as people release their, to spend $240 a night and have nobody want to room up because the con is in a shit place. I don't room with randos, or a ton of people, and I can't afford a 1 or 2 person split for the weekend.

That said, my current cosplay plans are Viktor from Yuri on Ice for Friday and Warlock Gran from Granblue Fantasy on Saturday.

Wow, she actually has the proportions of a 12 year old. If her legs were thinner and her head and hands were smaller, she'd probably get mistaken for a kid playing dress up.

Not hating on her since I don't even know her, but her prepubescent figure is a bit jarring. Ick, I need to delete my browser history now.

>> No.9443057

This is my main issue, too. It wasn't a problem before because the con was IN the hotel, but none of the partner hotels look like they're in walking distance. Hotel shuttles always stop around midnight too, which sucks because the con doesn't end at midnight.

I wish the con would release more information about travel options for those of us in Dallas.

A-kon is only a three-hour round trip for me, so I'll probably go on Friday and/or Saturday. I've been wanting to cosplay lately but I'll probably just go in normie clothes as usual. It's easier to move around without people stopping you for photos anyway. If I DID cosplay, it'd be Yuna from Final Fantasy 10.

>> No.9443082

I'm also from Garland, but luckily I don't mind crowded rooms too much. We've already booked our hotel but I can't even remember what type of room it is and how many people are gonna be jammed in it. It's not the most ideal situation but that's what we're stuck with I guess.

Are you going to the Granblue meetup on Saturday? I'm not doing any cosplays from it but my sister is going. I was planning on cosplaying Yuri's Eros outfit for A-kon but I'm gonna put that on hold until Afest, probably.

Yep doing the GBF meetup on Saturday, I'm in the group for it, friend is doing Djeeta in her Arcana Dueler outfit.

I'm doing the pink outfit for Viktor, but I'm doing the Shingeki No Bahamut game collaboration artwork version, and I'm doing it Friday since I don't want to split a day with two cosplays that are taking effort to make. I'm sad the YoI meetup got moved from Friday to Saturday, but GBF meetup sounds more promising anyhow, and I don't wanna be in a sea of the same 4-5 characters being cosplayed. lmao

So, if you're coming from Houston, obviously you're going to do a hotel. But there's this horrible middle ground when you're in fucking Garland of whether it's worth to book a hotel 5+ miles from a convention center if you're just gonna have to drive back and forth each day, regardless, and it's not convenient to get back to during the day without getting in a car or Uber. That's why we're irritated.

Also, THREE HOTELS are in walking distance, they were COMPLETELY BOOKED or on hold. So, yes, that's why we're bitching about them being MILES away.

I agree. I think he can be cocky out of confidence, we all have an ego of some sort regarding what we know we can do.

I've hung out with him and talked to him at a couple cons/and an out of con mutual friend thing. I think his problem is he's also friends with a lot of mid-high tier cosplayers that actually are complete ego shitbags. I've had some bad experiences with our mutuals in 2016 and it really made me step away heavily from social media/cosplay/conventions except for AKON over it. Wasn't Carl's fault though.

Think of it this way. The moral argument about Sandbagging can be summed up like this:

If an athlete is good enough that they worked their way up from peewees all the way to the NFL, they should be commended and proud of their achievements.

By that same token, if an NFL player started bashing the shit out of peewees to prove a point, he's an utter fuckwad.

What he did was inexcusible. He wanted to push his limits on his new found cos-fame and didnt think about his actions. It serves him right. It's one thing to be a big fish in a small pond, its quite another to have to smear it in the small fishes faces for a quick $100 and a trophy at some piddly ass little con.

He's "cos-famous" and has the ego to match at this point. Step back from the little leagues and go fight in a real competition at a real con. Hope whatever prize they gave was worth the permanent public stain on his rep.

I need some input on my travel plans from people who have actually taken the TRE before. I just want to make sure this is going to turn out as perfectly as it is in my head.

I live in Dallas. A-Kon is in Fort Worth. A-Kon's schedule and my friend who lives in Dallas and works in Fort Worth's work schedule happened to align almost perfectly. She offered to just drop me off at the convention center on the days she's working since it's about 5 minutes away from her job.

The one day she's not working is the day of my panel, though. The panel is at 11:00AM. If I leave the house at 7:00AM and take the TRE from Victory Station, will I make it to the con in time?

This is working out really well in my head. Too well. I thought I was going to have to pay for either a shitty hotel room or a cramped hotel room until one of my friends told me that she could take me to the con for 3 out of the 4 days. I just need someone to reassure me that everything is actually going to work out this well for me.

Yeah, uh, sorry but dance belts isn't the go to for everything. Because most likely if you're openly urging dudes to wear dancebelts, you have no idea what they actually do. Dudes will have a bulge, period. Dance belts don't fucking tuck your dick. You're not going to see vein details in a fucking VKS, it's not paper thin untextured spandex where supportive underwear matters to smooth shit out. This dance belt shit is getting out of control. I'm all for them/other proper supportive smoothing undergarments for men and women, but people are crying 'DANCE BELTS' when they can just tell someone has a penis because they're not Ken Doll flat.

I'm sorry but that's bullshit anon. I have seen her stuff up close and in-person and it's very mediocre. Her Devi Symmetra for example, that she's won with multiple times, is horrible up close. There were globs of glue-gun glue oozing out in various places on the armour, there were large areas of over spray on the jewels where you can tell she spray painting the pieces without properly masking them off, the jewels themselves had various problems with their resin- some were clear but many were clouded up strangely, the skulls all over were the dime-store halloween type that really needed to be altered or cleaned up because they were sloppy looking, and to top it all off she had wrapped christmas lights around the whole thing to make it light up but made no effort to incorporate them or at least hide them better.
She had done a great job on her makeup and bodypaint but holy fuck the rest was so bad.

Dude I give zero shits about guys having a bulge since hey, we all know you're a guy and you've got a dick and balls but for fucks sakes I was sitting on a couch at a con recently and some asshat wearing a zentaisuit was leaning on the end of it talking to someone so his junk was right in my face and I could fucking tell he wasn't circumcised. If the material is that thin and I can see that without even trying there's a problem. This shit needs to stop or you fucks need to figure out a better way to deal with that problem, dancebelt or not.

I'm pretty excited! Mostly because this year I'm finally planning cosplays that I'm excited about. Usually I just cosplay from series that my older sister wants to do cause I'm new to cons and it was easier and felt safer to just stick with her and her friends. But we have really different tastes in anime/shows and this year I decided to just do my own thing.

In previous years you could do things without a badge, but that's because they can't stop people from just being at the hotel. A convention center might be different. I have seen cons check badges before you can too far past the front door

I feel like I could write a book about it at this point because I'm salty about the whole ordeal for many reasons, but I'll give a few examples. For context, I'm a cis male. I read up on gender expression for a while but determined I'm just kinda weird and that's fine; I have my own idea of what makes a man a man and none of that is really biological. These people knew this.

>person A comes out as trans, immediately starts joking about the ways I'm not traditionally masculine and regularly ribs me to "turn in my man card" (I told him at this point "dude whatever, I don't take my masculinity seriously and we all know it")
>same person is on FB constantly talking about how he "earns his manhood with every shot of T"
>person B comes out as NB, person A immediately goes "well I'll always see you as a woman"
>person B comes out as full trans this time, actually pulls me into the group chat because he feels he needs my validation against person A
>person A is supposed to visit person B and person C (also trans male), stands them up for an entire weekend to go chase other trans males with the excuse "i had a guy sitting on my lap, sorry"
>shit happens between me and person B due to me making a joke about not losing all my /k/ shit when Hillary lost (I voted 3rd party), immediately get pic related from person B on my tumblr

I also got a message from person A that said "Also this isn't a contest of masculinity. You've been intimidated by me since we met, and I was a GIRL back then," which I found curious since ever since he came out all he did was try to establish how manly he was by pointing out how "unmanly" I was, like I'm gonna sit there and have the definition of masculinity dictated to me by someone who wasn't even sure he wanted to identify as one until a couple of years ago.

Well atleast that's good. Just thought you should know though that I personally know these boys in the first post and there's absolutely no reason why they should be outed on here, or anywhere. Also transtrending doesnt fucking exist because every person is valid for what they identify as. Fuck all these nasty plebs calling them fake boys.

>> No.9470280

Fair enough, like I said, I don't know who they are nor is my beef with them. I agree wholeheartedly with you too, which is why I used he/him pronouns for all the people I'm currently at odds with. It's not their gender identity I have a problem with; it's that one of them proceeded to take stabs at my gender identity (and each other's at one point!) when they should fucking know better already by virtue of being trans at all. That's what I mean by tumblrtrans - it's that weird juxtaposition of "I'm a man, respect me as one" and "lol fragile masculinity" that only comes from places like that.

Oh goody, another person. I actually hadn't logged on to Facebook until a few minutes ago so I didn't even see the announcement post for that dweeb until just now. I was talking about the many other no-names A-Kon has to offer.

>What you're coughing up will never be worth $90.
It hasn't even been worth the ~$70. It's not exactly a skippable con for a few reasons, but it is overpriced. I think anyone with half a mind knows to either submit a panel, apply for an industry badge, volunteer (in a not shitty station), buy a badge off of Craigslist (high risk, high reward), ghost, or mooch off of someone with an artist alley table.

>> No.9471983

>It's not exactly a skippable con for a few reasons
It's very skippable though? Nothing ever that important happens there unless your an artist that makes big sales?

>> No.9471988

I guess it depends on what you do at a con. Here are some of the reasons I always end up going to A-Kon even if the people running it are so, so out of touch:

>Huge con that brings a lot of people from out of state. For me, this is the only chance I have to see many of my friends who moved out of state in person.
>Doll A-Kon (BJD section of A-Kon) is actually better than a lot of actual BJD conventions

It's surprisingly great. There's a separate dealers' area dedicated just to doll stuff, the no recasts rule is strictly enforced, the panels are fun, socials are great and there are a lot of prizes throughout the con (if you attend every social, you'll end up leaving with 1 or 2 things at least). It's run by staff separate from the main A-Kon staff, so it actually has its shit together.

>I'm also excited for the J-Fashion programming.

I don't think they are ungrateful. Just stating their opinions and irritation. Think about it, if they bought a badge last year and waited for decent guests, but have been given shit, I would be pissed too.

I mean I get why they'd do that, but how are they going to enforce it? How can you tell the difference between an unofficial meetup and a group of friends? If your fandom has a huge number of people, it already has an official meetup anyway.
