  1. I definitely think I'm the minority here, but I'm glad you guys agree. I'm looking forward to it!! Yeah, it'll be cheesy and odd, but it looks cute. I can't get over Pikachu's voice though......it just doesn't fit lol.

    Arcades thread the third

    That warrants a trip to Game Underground! Did you know it moved again? It's closer to Boston now.
  3. :( He was so nice at Otakon. I wonder if he wasn't feeling well then @RevInstant

    Thanks for the update!
  6. This has been updated!! :) It's now the 31st NOT the 1st!!!
  7. Are you suggesting Otakon lie than? I'm not exactly sure what answer you are looking for. If Otakon can't share the real reason why a panel was cancelled, what answer would satisfy you? To start I have no idea why the panels were cancelled, and I didn't ask. I assume that if I don't know (and two of them fell unto my room) there is a good reason for that. Otakon usually has no problem admitting to issues and problems when they can, (they openly admitted fault to a communication conflict with one of the DMZ panels I believe) so no one is maliciously leaving out the details. I definitely agree communication needs to be better, and that we need to work on a better way of communicating when a panel is cancelled (I found out about VAAD through Guidebook update), but in terms of why it was cancelled? Unfortunately we can't always know why, and if we don't know why, it's for a reason.
  8. I'll have to experiment for next year! Definitely want to make more, so it's an option!!! I think my cutter will cut fabric ok Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Only two. I just think I didn't iron them on long enough. I had to balance between a nice stick and burning the fabric. That one was a bit more sensitive than normal cotton.
  10. Wellllll let me delve into it. I bought the sleeves, I did a cost analysis on whether I should make them with discounted fabric (I always shop sales!!!) and actually found bulk pre made from overseas more cost effective. So I got 200 wedding sashes in Otakon Blue. From there I purchased iron on vinyl, cut out the designs (accessibility, press, reserved, ASL) and ironed them all on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Capacity of the Friday concert?

    If we had had something going on in the second room, the sound would have bled through the wall and ruined the feel of the concert. Trust me, there were events RIGHT before that, and events RIGHT after that, in that room.
  12. That was just the Main Events and Featured Programming. I made them myself :-) I have already had a few departments speak with me about having their own seat sleeves so maybe it will expand!

    Capacity of the Friday concert?

    I can tell you why. Until those seats are physically placed in the hall we don't have a solid capacity. We have a guess, but nothing definite. The capacity I knew as fact yesterday was different than what ended up working out, I took one look at the layout and know it changed slightly. One of the first things I planned in the morning was counting the chairs and setting up the room for the day. That is when we will have a true final count.

    'Prepping' for Otakon

    I packed my car on Friday. Ha.
  15. Thank you for the suggestions!! We did attempt to put the labels on the top of the chairs initially, but the curve didn't allow the stickers to actually stick to the chair. So it was a debate of a sticker that will stay on, or half of them falling off. We have definitely talked about additional signs for next year to assist in finding seats. And as much as I would have loved to show everyone to their seat, there with 2k of you guys and 15 of us. We have definitely learned about the venue, and will definitely improve upon it for next year! I hope you enjoyed the concert as much as we did!
