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..

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.)

She was saying it was so crowded and that was a bit in the way. Can't they do it like Sakura con and away from the main hall? There's enough room if they finally fix the hallways.

Silent: Pah. Sakura Con is not immature to the point where they forget to give powere to the hotel. They were worried about the arcade. I know people that will never vendor again due to the stupidity of the staff. Because this convention is getting big, they need to root out the free teenagers and get official staff that can do their job.

im not sure if it was a rule or not but someone told me i could not be shritles at con, even though it was key tell of my cosplay.

i notice the fact that it was the same songs over and over for gutiar hero as someone who is pretty savy with music i have to say i lost intrest in a few songs this con.

on the panels; can someone for the love of all that is good, can someone do a panel that is not about hetilia?! i mean seriously mostly every panel the whole con was related to that.

id gladly staff at aki con if i could get out to the meetings.

although i liked the new spot for the dealers hall it had way more space and fit the artist alley in with it.

in closing i have to say i just wish i had a chance to take pics with the other pokemon cosplayers, i was the only one who showed up at the photoshoot. although most of the pokemon cosplayers did not show up till later in the con.
