Last thread is kill

Okay, so con season is about half over. We've got AniRevo and Otakuthon next, then there's AnimeThon and this Kimi-con thing that's in its first year (and seems to be about Sakimichan the artist???), and FanEx.

So what's the deal with Kimi-con. First year and it's $60 for a full weekend. Is anyone actually going here? I like the idea of an October convention considering nothing much else going on then.

I'm not but I just want to say that is a fantastic cosplay idea.

>> No.9962514

I'm curious about kimi-kon aswell, it's at the Enercare Centre which is a big place to be holding a first year con. $60 is steep for weekend admission too. The thing is that I haven't seen much advertising or talk about it and the website seems pretty empty. I may go for a day but I'm getting dashcon vibes from it

>> No.9962607

I'm skipping it. The Enercare centre is way too big for a first year, no-name con, and I can't see it being anything more than a glorified Unplugged or Stage Select. It's being run by five marketing "friends" who want to take advantage of the anime convention crowd, but have no management or event experience.

Basically it's a cash grab con.

>> No.9962685

>Basically it's a cash grab con.

just further proof that the 'prestige' of 'winning' the masquerade is .... just blah. are the rewards even worth it / a big deal? it doesn't seem so from an outside perspective
honestly, i wish the masquerade format could change. i'd probably much prefer the japanese style of just having a sprawling cosplay area instead of seeing it from really far away on a stage and feeling tempted to just watch the monitors. do japanese cons even have masquerades or anything like that? it seemingly occupies a huge portion of the cosplayers day, too tucked away in a green room, etc.
growing up i thought a masquerade was a party, not a presentation to be watched.
why can't they just call it the pageant or something?

>> No.9966121

Masquerade refers to a masked party historically. The term was taken by a Japanese man and applied to cosplay. Seeing as the world cosplay competition finale is in Japan, I would say that they do have on-stage costume competition. Also we have a sprawling cosplay area too, i.e. the hall at the bottom of the escalators. It's really similar to Comiket's cosplay area except for that fact that 1. no changing room at the con and 2. less crowd-control.

How do people actually meet single people at cons at all? Most I can get is a shitload of pictures taken of me by actual obese autists and old people who like my outfit. I've made a ton of female friends at cons but they're all engaged or lesbians.

Regularfag here, I don't really come on 4chan much anymore.

I just came back because I was curious about this too. I'm newly single again and with FanExpo coming up, I figured it would be a good opportunity to meet girls.

People in Toronto though generally are reserved, places like Montreal and Edmonton I can get laid no problem. Although I avoid the latter because it's Edmonton lmao. But in all seriousness, I wonder this too.

I can't imagine any girl that's "DTF" being anything but less than double my weight (5'11" 150lbs) or severely autistic to the point that all beauty is forsaken. Or as you said lesbian, engaged, hardcore dyke, or not hygeneic.

Do normies who dip their toes in vidya even attend these events? I went to a lesser known event last year, and I remember being bewildered at the amount of overweight nerds playing in Smash Bros tournaments on old CRTs. It was like a middle school lunch room with a whole slew of people sitting just hunched over. Made me bust a good laugh.

Animethon was fun, actually. Really loved the new venue, and a lot of the events they had set up. Fantastic gaming hall with loads of options and space too.

The Festival Games were a neat addition, but I think they should have had better prizes on the whole. Some of the hosts were entertaining though, like the fat dude who would shake the bell around and holler, and the persona 5 guy doing some kind of shoutcast of the fishing game.

Panels were lacking on the whole, kind of boring for the most part, a lot of them felt like they just shat something out for the free pass, but most stuff the actual staff did was great. Besides the closing ceremony, oh my god, that was so awkward.

You just have to go and talk to a lot of people until you find someone that is single there. I would say 4/10 females I talk to at Animethon are single.

My only advice is to not act like a total fucking weeb there and talk to a lot of females. Try to be interesting and not weird at the same time. Also let them know you want to be friends because otherwise they'll just think you're a creep for talking to them. Most females won't be interested but there's always a few that are. Once you're "friends", it's almost a guarantee that they are down to fuck you if they're single.

The situation is different. Photography usually requires closed quarters and most con photographers don't have a staff, so it's usually just you and them. That gives potential creepers plenty of opportunities to be actual creepers.

You can certainly be sexist towards men, but generally about restricted topics. A lot of women (and men) don't believe men can be raped (they can) and are also super shitty towards trans men, effeminate men, gay men, etc.

I do get your point, but let's not hastily generalize that sexism towards men can't exist – it just more generally doesn't when talking about cishetero men and mainstream masculinity.

"Prejudice plus power" is the made-up qualifier for racism, not sexism.
Besides even if you don't define sexual discrimination/prejudice as 'sexism' discrimination and prejudice are just *clapping emoji* as *clapping emoji* bad *clapping emoji*

Not that it matters because that definition isn't valid or real anyway. (It's a bullying tactic)
You absolutely can be sexist towards men. You can be racist towards white people.
The funny part is when the white men get bent out of shape and start crying about it as if it's an argument they can win like >>9979274 >>9979500 lmfao @ these posts. The photographers who aren't creeps don't need your sympathy OR help - you're actually making it worse.

The problem is that sometimes you do shoot with someone you can supposedly trust, who then turns out to be a gigantic creep. Vincenzo is a good example. Friends with that dude for years, then he assaults one of our friends during a photoshoot. She trusted him implicitly and he betrayed that.

Why run the risk when it's less likely a female photog will just straight up not do that and make you feel comfortable?

Yeah but unless I have the money to afford someone like Paul Hillier or Tim Birmingham, it's not worth the risk. There's a ton of great female photographers out there, who present no risk and do equivalent or better work. So who cares? It seems like you're just trying to #notallmen this, which smells of an ulterior motive. Maybe you're just a creep photographer trying to create a more tolerant space for creep photographers, IDK?

Why go to all that trouble when you can just work with a female photog?

You sound so assblasted about this. Why are you trying to tell people what photographer they should work with? If you want to shoot with a male photog, no one is going to stop you. Let people work with who they want and feel most comfortable with.

>> No.9980817

I personally don't care who you work with, it's just that you really start to limit your options if you cut out a whole gender of good and honest talents just cause of a few bad eggs. Thus why I suggest if you see a photographer who happens to be male, have a good reputation, and does excellent photos that you would want, just bring friends to stay safe.

>> No.9980823

>ulterior motive
I just am defending my male photographers I work with that have done an excellent job without being creepers.

>Maybe you're just a creep photographer trying to create a more tolerant space for creep photographers, IDK? But it's weird how fixated you are.

Or maybe you are a female photographer who isn't getting anywhere near as many hits as the big male ones and want to grab as many customers as you can be telling people not to go to them even with friends around. See? I can do the same and no, i'm only a cosplayer, not a photographer.

Just to add to what I said, I don't see a problem with working with just women if you feel more comfortable, but to tell people who would normally feel comfortable working with men to not to do so is what this is all about. I do however certainly hope those women who do work with men bring friends to stay safe anyways.

>> No.9981195

>bring friends
As someone who's been assaulted by a photographer before even having brought friends, this doesn't work. Some creeps are just creeps, and will touch you without consent anyway, then brush it off as "just a joke".

Sorry not sorry, if you touch my tits without my consent, you're committing sexual assault.

can we stop erasing victims of female-on-female sexual violence? it absolutely does exist. it's even easier for the perpetrators to wave it away as just a joke or even normal behaviour between women. by legitimizing their non-existence as a valid perspective you're targeting the victims and inciting a culture of violence to continue against them. you need to stop, because your arguments are bordering on hateful levels if they aren't already there.

>> No.9981222


Okay, so

1. Female on female violence in the photography community is relatively unheard of. It does exist, but the ratio of assault by male photogs vs female is massive, to the point you could say it's not a problem.

There is definitely evidence for it in the cosplay community, but generally from other cosplayers like Momokun.

No one is saying there's a ZERO percent chance a female photog will be inappropriate, but you have a waaaay lower chance of them being creepers vs male photogs.

Whoever made that post was willing to exaggerate to try and make their point. When they say "no risk" they are either misinformed, hateful, or lying(exaggerating).

Bullshit. They're all just creeps waiting to be exposed. People are just too scared to come forward. That's why people don't find out until it's too late. You NEVER see this with female photographers, therefore, shoot with them or run the real risk of sexual harrassment or assault.

There's a lot of arguing about male photographers being predators here but based on MY personal experience I can say I do agree and disagree.

I'm a male and I started photography as hobby but eventually started doing a lot of professional photoshoots for females. For the most part I did it because it gave me a thrill and a sense of power over them knowing their private photos were in my posession. I considered black mailing a few of my clients for sexual favors but I ultimately never did anything crazy with them besides occasionally jerking off to them or sharing the photos with a few friends. However, after a while the thrill of it starts to wear off and now I'm solely doing photography for the money and passion.

So yes, they are not wrong when they say male photographers are predatorial but most males will never act on it.

Lookin like Unplugged 2.0 which at one point I saw being nicknamed 'photoshoot con' ... not a good thing to be known for.
That's the only reason I can even conceive of going... to take pictures.
Unfortunately I almost guarantee most of the cosplayers (of the few that go) will likely be the youngest people in the community. Think the people that go to events like Anime Shogatsu and the cosplay picnics as compared to the varied crowd you see that is sourced from all over Ontario at Fan Ex or AN.

It's also 1 week before EGLX - which actually has improved a lot over the years.

I would not be surprised if the person who made this post works for Kimikon considering I've seen this post happen at least 3 times already in the /cgl/ Canada threads over the summer.

This isn't a quirky lil' Forest City Comic-Con that's serving an under represented market literally hours away from the GTA.

Okay to be fair, Unplugged actually had some things going for it. It got decent guests for some time from the Sailor Moon cast to JYB, had some more interesting panels, and nowhere near as pricey. All I see with Kimikon is just cosplay guest after cosplay guest and Sakimichan which sadly is looking like the best thing about the con.

>black people are objectively more likely to be criminals

you're the type of person to say "not to be racist... but..."

>> No.10012909 [DELETED] 

Are you going to claim that they’re not? Like if you picked a random person from the Native American population, there is a higher chance that the person has addiction issues than if you picked from the Italian population. Fact is: some populations are more under-priveleged than others due to long-time institutional biases. Criminality or poor health are just the symptoms of some deeper issues. But the correlation is still there. I don’t know what you want to erase the fact these correlations exist for. Is stating stats racist now?

>> No.10013093 [DELETED] 

Sure why not? You are also a retard. I work with African blacks and when I see the way they talk, dress, and carry themselves it’s clear they aren’t hood ghetto types. You post data when in real life it’s the context of each situation that matters. Kids these days are so mentally weak, lacking ‘street smarts’, reading a chart on the internet and living their lives based on that instead of developing awareness to surroundings.

"I have anecdotal evidence that contradicts national statistics!"

Alright buddy

>> No.10013111 [DELETED] 

It would be more correct to say that low-income and racially oppressed populations are more likely to contain criminal elements as a consequence of social disadvantage.

When you say something as dumb and simple as "Black people are more likely to be criminals", you not only gloss over the major nuances of the situation (and remove important information), you also feed into the wrongheaded notions that racism is justified because a social quality must be inherent to someone's genetics when it isn't.

Further, statistics don't exist in a vacuum. Are "black people" inclusive of wealthy black Canadians and Americans? Are they inclusive of new immigrants? Of immigrants from wealthier backgrounds? Etc.

If all you're posting is a single statistic without nuance to somehow blame a racial demographic for something, you're still being racist.

It's an hour and 15 minutes...unless you're taking Greyhound in which case my condolences. The train isn't too bad but fucking expensive IMO.

I find Forest City to be better than London Comicon as well, the venue and atmosphere were certainly nicer. But it was a little dead this year and some of the masquerade prizes were kinda meh. I still wouldn't bother with London Comicon tho. At least FCCC is downtown so you can bail and go to the museum or the couple nice ramen and/or sushi restaurants we have. LCC is EOA aka in the fucking ghetto at a fairgrounds that's also surrounded by missions and soup kitchens with only a smattering of nice stores if you feel like walking six blocks, or an overpriced indoor adventure park going the other direction. No thanks

I only got there late so didn't see how it was in the day. When I got there the artist alley looked real slow.

For the idol performances the seats were only a third full but the audience was lit as fuck thanks to the wota brigade in attendance.

The game section was actually pretty big and well stocked for a small con.

I thought the MTCC had some sort of exclusivity deal with fanexpo/DTAC? It's a prime location for a big con but neither Anime North or Kimikon were held there, but were held in similarly sized buildings, Fanexpo & DTAC are the only two cons held at MTCC. It's weird that a first year con not associated with the two is being held there.

>> No.10028017

Doubt they've got exclusivity. EGLX was at MTCC just a few weeks ago. It's likely just expensive. This company likely assumes that even with a potential loss in the first year(s) that having it in a Real Location is their best chance to suceed in the long term. It's hard to imagine it picking up steam when it's sandwiched inbetween MTAC and Anime North... but good luck to them.

>> No.10028426

Oh, I wasn't aware of that. That's a very risky move to make regardless, Holding new and unknown conventions in expensive venues a la kimikon often doesn't go well, and being in between MTAC and Anime North makes it worse.

I also didn't see them advertising at MTAC, Anime North or fanexpo. I feel like advertising at Youmacon wouldn't do much because I doubt too many people would drive from Detroit to Toronto for a first year con.

I'm glad that more people are trying to run cons in Ontario but I wish that they would start smaller and grow each year instead of trying to be the next anime north right away.

I think I attended 3 cons roughly 10 years ago. I haven't been in a long time. Anime North just seems to get overwhelmingly big. It's pretty intimidating. I don't have friends to go with, nor do I know how to make friends at these things. How would an isolated Canadian anime fan in Ontario progress into forming social bonds with other anime fans? How do you deal with scary things like people who might hate you or persecute you for liking certain genres?
