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.

>> No.10256487

>> No.10256502

Honestly for the guests, concerts, and events AWA offers I don’t personally think $80 is AWFUL, even as a poor asshole.

>> No.10256592

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.

This will be my second AWA and my first time as a guest. Truth be told though the first hardly counts since it was only for 1 day and I had to drive back in a hurry due to work.

Ill be hosting a panel on cosplay materials and one on giant mecha costumes. Ill also have my RX-79G costume on a display mannequin in the cosplay alley. I should be stomping around the halls on Saturday in my Unicorn Gundam.

>> No.10266511

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.
