Where does AWA get off thinking they can charge $80.. I'm good but it troubles my poorer friends..

>>how do you feel about ticket pricing? Parking pricing?

What's the deal with parking anyways, are we not allowed to park at the office building parking nearby? Because I guess I've just gotten lucky for years parking there without issue.

There should be especially no issue this year with parking since there is no overlap with Braves shenanigans.

Tell your poor friends to pay attention to pre-registration prices then. I think it's only like $50ish if you register way early I'm pretty sure. They could also do a panel for a discount or volunteer for a free ticket. I always used to register as soon as tickets were up for the next year to ensure I got the best price before I started doing panels and stuff.

It's called It's Really Fucking Expensive To Put On A Legitimate Vocaloid Concert That Doesn't Look Like Shit But People Who Don't Know How This Works Wouldn't Know This.

The companies that want a legitimate show require equipment and staff that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. If you don't want to pay, don't pay, but then don't expect to see the show anywhere else as ARIA can not afford to put on the same type of touring show that Hatsune Miku can pull off.

Must be. Have you seen the portfolio for some of them? A person with an iPhone and photoshop could do the same, if not better quality.

I'm pretty said they said they were only doing like 400 people.... And since there is barely 20 on there, they probably just started approving anyone with a gallery, took their $110 membership fee and ran with it. Easy income for them... There really isn't any benefit to being a photopass holder other than having your name on the website, being able to post that you're charging. That's about it... A photographer with a decent client-base can just post "Offering shoots at the con" and will get clients easily.

I get they all start somewhere, but to me it's just easy / more revenue for the con itself.

A certain cosplayer that rhymes with Dong was shit talking her uber driver over something he has no control over and is meant to be a compliment from other riders. Since she is a tits<twitch> player, she is fairly popular and it spread that she and hobby friends will likely not even tip and will downrate them.

If you actually believe what you are saying and think that uber drivers or lyft drivers would actively be concerned with that you're horribly mistaken and really need a reality check.

> So no driver worth a brain cell wants to come near anime cons because not only do they consider it a waste of time, they dont want to get downrated because some vapid cunt does not approve of the compliments other riders gave a driver.

This is some really fucking hilarious mental gymnastics there anon. How do they know you're going for the con unless your pic is literally you in cosplay, what if you're just staying there the same time as the con, who is to say you are a mental nutcase. By that logic uber drivers would never pick up users from bars due to potential drunk assholes and down rating.

Pick up at the con you fucking retard. PICK UP AT THE CON.

I also said any driver with a brain cell. The only ones you are going to get are the ones with shit cars and smell like someone took a dump on the back seat, that doesn't have a brain cell.

Use your god damn brain, not your tits to think. The waverly does not have people that are "just staying there". AWA has taken over the entire hotel and sold it out for the past fucking 4 years.

This is so stupid I don't know where to begin with how stupid this is. Uber drivers are all over, this con is a drop in the bucket compared to other conventions(not just anime) that go on throughout Atlanta. No one remembers who the fuck you're talking about and most all have had worse called at them or told to them. Seriously, you don't know how shit some have until a business person is late to the airport and screaming at the driver to hurry the fuck up <racist_noun_here>.

If you think any driver would care about something like some small twitch streamer doing shit or even know what is going on half the time you really need to expand your view of the world. Been to this con going on 5 years now, half the time the uber/lyft drivers don't even know what the fuck is going on and wonder if it's some dragon con thing.

You have an extremely narrow grasp on whatever you are ranting on about with whatever beef you have with some thot

You assume anyone knows who you are talking about, even here people don't know who you are talking about. You think some uber driver not in the community will give a shit? Besides declining a ride will also hurt your score, and most people doing lyft/uber do it for extra cash. Full time people know the hours to work and the places to start, though overall those people won't give a shit if one person doesn't tip in the scheme of it all.

Uber/Lyft can also see the pickup's rating before accepting too. No one is going to care about a single person who just raised a bit of hell on twitter. A one star and no tip from one person is like nothing overall. I take it you've never been an uber driver or researched it in the slightest. Most rides don't tip anyways, especially on short trips, it's probably about 1 in 10 actually tip worth anything.


Have your final (you) from me because that's all you seem to be wanting, I rate your troll 1 out of 5 star though have a tip, get better and over this weird obsession.

There's the Cumberland Mall food court and attached restaurants which can be reached on foot via bridge. There are also restaurants in the galleria, but they'll probably be packed all weekend. Further out, there are the typical fast food places within a short drive.

I highly recommend checking out Heirloom Market BBQ on Akers Mill Rd. It's a Korean/Texas BBQ fusion and one of ATL's best BBQ restaurants. The spicy pork sandwich is amazing.

Not sure where you're coming from, but Waffle House is an experience and you should try it at least once. It makes for a great hangover recovery.

Canceling rides after a certain regional average puts you in danger of deactivation. The acceptance rate does nothing but gives you extra head pats and useless points that are good for 5 cents extra per ride.

They can't really do anything until he harrasses someone at the con. They don't do background checks for badges, but they do revoke badges when an attendee violates the rules.

Not to be "that anon" but your post comes off as kinda sounding butthurt or white knighting as it goes on. Unless he was stalking someone at the cons or being grossly creepy to a multitude of people good luck with anyone being able to do anything or care. I'm not defending what might be a fucking creepo, but your post doesn't make me even care in the slightest I hope you showed something more substantial than "dicord and facbook with your friends" because that shit basically means nothing. Like the other anon said, unless it's reported again when it happens there is very little anyone can do. For the life of me I have no idea why /cgl/ feels that they can bring shit up that happened from cons ago and expect staff or anyone else to jump on it.

Aside from that to address some lol in your post
>Be on the look out for a mid 20 or something subaru.
Oh yeah, that one! better look out for that deku too huh?
>he lurks tinder a lot, and is often intoxicated during the con.
This means nothing because you basically described probably half the people at most anime cons and at least more than half of AWA.

Always good advice. Having a few generic conversation starters helps. Also, people love to talk about themselves, so try asking rather than telling.

Pretty sure he was loudly mimicking every word out of the panelists' mouths and they loudly told him to shut the fuck up or get the fuck out. I tried visiting cosplay after dark prior to that and left 5 minutes in because I was stuck between him and another fat dude leaving me with literally no room. Everyone around him all tried getting them to take him up on stage at the beginning of cosplay when they were taking volunteers just so we wouldn't have to put up with him. He was also at the hentai viewing room at 4 in the morning running laps around the room because he apparently lost his bag. Hope someone stole it.

Sounds like a case of mismanaged expectations.

This was my second AWA and both times it has been a blast. It is definitely a "party con", which is exactly what I was wanting. Nothing more fun than being around fellow weebs in cosplay than drinking with fellow weebs in cosplay.

I can understand the frustration if that is not what you are wanting/expecting; however, I can't imagine AWA has drastically changed between years that those who have been before didn't know what to expect.

Not to sound like some gatekeeping hipster asswipe, but cons in general have changed drastically over the last 10 years or so as Anime and "nerd culture" have become commonplace and accessible.
The quality of non-guest panels have taken a nosedive, as well as dealers halls. It all feels like a giant advertisement now for funimation, Crunchyroll, etc rather than fans coming together to share passion for a form of media/art. I think it's great that more people are being exposed to anime and that it's being seen as a more legitimate form of entertainment, but it's altered the fandoms in a way that can't be undone.
The cons I grew up on are dead and gone, but at least the new fans today seem to enjoy what they have now if in a different context.

>> No.10283405

I completely understand your sentiment and think you are valid in your thinking. I've only started going to cons in the past 3 years, and I can sympathize with the feeling of "sponsorship" you mention.

It's bad enough that you can expect 80% of cosplays to be whatever is popular in the current season or in pop culture in general. I knew beforehand to expect a ton of MHA and Demon Slayer cosplays, a bunch of Jokers, and the ever present deadpool. My first cosplay was Kintaro Oe from Golden Boy and only the older vendors recognized me.

I did not go to many panels at AWA, but a lot of the ones I've been to in the past do seem to be "introductory" type panels, where a large portion of it is giving newcomers a taste of whatever it is about. Perhaps there have been more hardcore panels that delve into the aspects of a given subject where they expect anyone who attends to already have a cursory knowledge. I can understand the frustration associated with that.

Eventually anime and nerd culture will stop being the "cool" thing for hipsters, zoomers, and coomers, and we could have a renaissance. In the meantime you could always host a panel yourself and appeal to the hardcore fans

I heard through the grapevine that 2020 will be the last year at the Galleria. It's a combination of Galleria/Renaissance wanting more money, overcrowding, Suntrust Park, and the con overlapping with baseball season (although that wasn't an issue since they moved it to a month later, but last year the con happened literally during a Braves game). Venue wants more money because prices are raising everywhere in the area due to Suntrust existing, AWA doesn't want to pay for it, so they're gonna move to a new con center that I heard is being constructed right now. I think it'll be in Gwinnett county?

The Galleria is honestly a shitty venue though. Its only decent qualities being cheap parking, the larger panel rooms, and being close to a lot of food options. The place hasn't gotten an update in decades and it sorely needs it, especially in that food court area where the arcade always gets put. It's has practically no ventilation, so you're just stuck in a nasty, muggy, hot room with a bunch of people that reek.

The GWCC is expensive as hell, but you get what you pay for at least. I'm willing to shill out some more money for a place like that, meanwhile AWA thinks they can justify a $75 ticket on a place like the Galleria. Hopefully when AWA moves, they'll be wise in choosing what venue they go to next. I think it'll be a nice change of pace.

Seconding this, I'm sure the people who diss it have just been to more cons than me - because otherwise this is much more dense with stuff I want to do than Mega/Metro while still managing to be comfy. I honestly love the Waiverly/Cobb Galleria; it's gotten really crowded in the last couple of years, but the near-constant events they schedule in the huge stage room help to mitigate that.

Momo also tends to have more guests that interest me, although AWA really gave them a run for their money this time, at least for me. Momo's gaming content is also way better than AWA, but I think that's because they cater to the gaming scene more. Better JP arcade, huge space for local multiplayer games, retro cabinets, LAN parties, etc.

Not really sure how I feel about the date change. It's nice to have more time between Momo, D*C and then AWA... but the cold weather had me questioning what con I was at - Seeing as AWA has been warm / Hot since I've been going starting around 2002 ish.

The dealers room was missing some usual dealers. I am wondering if that's because a few other cons were going on the same weekend and they choose those over AWA?

It was alot more crowded this year - I'm thinking because of the fact it's further out, Giving those more time to prep, And on Halloween. I am not a big fan of partying / drinking, so I usually head up to my room around 11pm or 12 at the latest. The bars in the lobby weren't carding considering a few people I know underage were buying drinks all night, and me nor my girlfriend got carded as well.

All in all it was alright, The cooler weather was nicer for my own cosplays as well as my clients. Though none of us expected it to drop into the 30s with freeze warnings and in the mid 50s during the day (With wind)

The parking situation was frustrating. Hotel told us to park at the lot across from the park, and people started getting ticketed. Others didn't, Thankfully we didn't.

pic related. A Nezuko and Inosuke shoot I did.

I also forgot to mention that the dealers room seems to be getting more and more crammed each year, With the artist alley getting the brunt of the space-issues, making it damned near impossible to browse it - unless you wait in line and are in there as soon as it opens. I didn't get to enjoy it much because of that. All the major company booths (FGO, Crunchyroll, etc) took up ALOT of up space. I was also surprised to see CosplayDeviants booth there (Got to see Boner Robin in all his aged glory) and they were giving out free memberships with tissue paper inside, Which I thought was funny.

At this rate, AWA is going to need a bigger venue - Which basically leaves them with two options, The GWCC, Or the DragonCon hotels - I think those are really the only other options for venues that can hold alot of people.

Tbh I really think this just depends on what you are interested in. I go to AWA every year and how much I enjoy the con usually depends on what guests are going, same goes for other cons as well. I always enjoy cons more when guests I am really into are there. I had a blast this year due to Mana being there but the past couple of years AWA has been a little bland for me since there weren't many guests I was into. I've started traveling to more far away cons if they have guests that I am really into and I find I always enjoy those as well even if they would be bland to me otherwise. If you're into gaming I'd definitely make an effort to go to Momocon though and it seems like Momocon has a lot less people getting fucked up 24/7 since they try to be family friendly.

Since you're ugly, you need to be funny or interesting. Talking to people at meetups for fandoms that you're in is a good way to start up a conversation. Ask them what they thought about x y or z related to the fandom, keep the focus on their opinion as you ask follow up questions.

There's a weird juxtaposition where its both easier and harder to talk to cute people at cons. On one hand you are garuntee to be able to kick it off with complimenting their cosplay or asking them what anime/etc. They like, but at the same time you know that since they are a cutie at a con they are likely being hit on by all the lonely awkward smelly losers.

Don't worry about the opposite sex! Make friends with people who you have similar interests with, like if someone's doing a cosplay from a game or anime you like its easier to talk to them. Or, if you go to a panel and can tell someone has the same sense of humor as you. Usually people go to conventions in groups and you can meet their friends as well, make plans to meet at the rave and party, etc etc

I think you're missing the point. Yes, it sucks to be objectified but you're beating a dead horse when you talk to a mostly female board about it. Women are constantly objectified so we are (mostly) desensitized to it. When you get catcalled for walking to work every morning it doesn't seem like such a big deal.

Con hookups aren't a meme. My friend had one this AWA (in the room he shared with me and 6 other people, thanks dude) and another friend of mine gets them all the time. I've gotten my share of hotel room keys but never taken anyone up on it.

However, don't go trolling for hookups to the point where it becomes clear that you're only out to get pussy, with no care at all who it is. That isn't directed at you, but it's definitely directed at the guy in the pizza costume at the rave.

I illegally parked all three days and took the tickets off my car, putting them on someone else's each day. Now, three days later, all three tickets have been paid by the suckers whose cars I put my tickets on.

Fucking weeb idiots.

I just parked in the office lots everyday and nothing happened..

Did I miss anything good at Cosplay After Dark this year? I chose to skip it in lieu of hanging out with friends.

Last year I got my first back stepping on and lap pillow because of it, it was quite a special night. Thank you AWA-chan TwT

Did anybody hit up the Spla2n tournament on Saturday? I screwed up and forgot to bring my Switch, but I really wanted to attend.

If you did attend, how was it? Fun? Well-organized? Were the participants skilled? Were they affable? I hope it went well, 'cause I'd love to see Splatoon tournaments become a mainstay at AWA. Opportunities to play squid game in even a semi-competitive setting are scarce.

Awa in particular has a long history of resulting in marriages.

Back in the single digits, guests of awa returned married to people they met at awa
