Another Aki Con in the history books! The mornings were usually slower than I'd like, but I still had fun in the end. Here's a link to my pics from the con:

That was fun..A little tarded though..I didn't like the whole "everything is unorganized" thing that was goijng on..A lot of things were not set up well organization wise..Like the ball..I didn't go, but I heard a lot of people didn't have masks, wore shorts, and even there was no "Ball room style" dancing like it should have been..Walk past and they were playing poppy techno....Kinda bad..And the photoshoots were terrible..In all of the shoots I went and saw, every single one had random ass people come in getting pics taken..Like my gathering (durring kh and ff) got overrun by a ton of marvel cosplayers..Just some suggestions there..yea..

Yeah, I have to admit the 4 years I've gone to Akicon it's always been a total abortion, but I'm used to it now. It's pretty much the con I go to strictly to people watch and hang out with friends. The panels are always terrible or non existent. Usually the only thing I do that's con related is watch some anime in the viewing rooms. I tried to on Saturday night and both of the rooms had blue screens, nothing playing in them. Both were also filled with groups of people sitting on the floor, just using the room to chat and hang out.

Oh. I also play guitar hero. Other people can complain about the con. I agree with probably everything they say. You can put ME on the record for complaining about how they NEVER GIVE US A DAMN GUITAR HERO WITH UNLOCKED SONGS.

Man oh man, nothing makes my friend and I more angry then having 10 songs to choose from. C'mon, guys. Stop enraging drunken cosplayers at 3am.

Also, it's a good thing I talked my friend out of going to the ballroom class. I heard there was no point in it when the ball was more of a high school prom then a ball..These people need to learn how to run something before they decide to make it..I have sworn off panels at this con now..

Sounds like last year's ball. In fact, that's exactly how I went to last year's ball with my friends: shorts, no masks, bumpin to GD&TOP's "High High." lol

I'm disappointed I didn't go, because so far the cosplay photos everyone's shared look really great, but I'm not disappointed that I missed out on Aki-Con's usual organization of events.

Thumbs up

I personally didn't attend (I always prefer Sakura Con or other conventions to be honest), but I heard many horror stories from vendors and then good stories from cosplayers. I have been hearing the vendors complain about how they were placed outside in the bad weather. They also pointed out the staff (not the hotel mind you) made more energy priority to the arcade. After some pestering from atendees the hotel staff fixed the power to all the convention hotel.

And yes my buddy did notice the Guitar Hero was badly organized this year due to the location of it. The convention is getting big so many of the areas are too crowded. I have worked at a convention inside a hotel before, you only get waddle room like some of the places you see in Sakura Con. (This is because people walk slowly in the vendor hall though...)

I say that the convention should be moved to the Bellevue Convention Center. The staff can charge more and make it bigger instead of hurting the attendees with too slow of crowds that normally are from only 15,000 people at Sakura Con. Also charging more will mean less teenagers and more parents to make them listen. I heard horror stories about the teens too. (I know not all of them are bad but still, its better to have a parental unit around for those 16 or younger that do cause issues.)

The ball was all right. Enjoyable, and it started off with more classical music, but unfortunately not very danceable classical music. There's a difference between "old-fashioned ballroom dance music" and "radio concert classical", the most relevant one being that it's really hard to dance to the latter. No wonder the DJ eventually resorted to pop. I wish they'd get somebody to spin the tunes next year who really knows how to pick old-fashioned music you can dance to.

(I'd volunteer, but the coordinators seem like immature amateurs of the first order and I'm not sure I want to work with them at that level. I was trying to defend them at first when the complaints started rolling in, since I had a good time as an attendee for the most part, but their rudeness to the artists and vendors completely shocked me. Talk about a pointlessly stubborn refusal to take responsibility for one's mistakes and reach out to one's community to repair the breach. It left a bad taste in my mouth.)
