Kumoircon Con Report
The Con Kumoircon
The Place: Hilton and Red Lion Hotel Vancover Washington
The Dates 1st though 3rd September 2012
Komoroicon is a Oregon / SW Washington Anime convention, celebration its 10th anniversary. This is my fifth year attending. My new big Hello Kitty plush accompanied me.
I check in my badge Friday, unlike last year there were no pre-con events. I skipped out of the panelist meeting, and had my glitch with the Opening Ceremony. The room was filled to capacity and I only got in when a few seat opened up. They had us line up outside the hotel but did the count at the door. The staff should had done a count of the line and station the maid’s squad to mark the cutoff point instead of waiting in line just to learn they are not getting in. After Opening Ceremony I attended most of the Funamtion Industry panel then try to go the My Little Brony panel, to only find out it was packed. Gasping for air I left and took pictures. Noting an issue number of people I arranged for a last minute mike for my Otaku over 25 panel. I attended the Cosplaying parents before heading off to AMV show and contest.
At 8:00pm I did my Otaku over 25. Last year I had 35 attendees this year I had more than 50. I put in a solid performance but I could have done better. On problem was I realize I need to do all the work rather than posting on line for suggestions. I walked around the con area after dinner, darting in and out of the video rooms before heading home.
