Panel Feedback 2022
xenoglossy replied to Nate A.M.'s topic in Post Otakon 2022I'm glad you enjoyed our panels! I'm a huge nerd, so I find it very flattering to be told that they're informative and the research we put into them is apparent to the audience. Thanks for the heads up that one of us was using too many filler words - we will have to keep an eye out for that when rehearsing panels in the future.
xenoglossy replied to Attendee7000's topic in Otakon 2022I stayed at the Morrison-Clark both this year and last year. Pros: 5-minute walk to the convention center, even less to the Marriott Marquis. Very quiet. I've never seen any congestion in the lobby or had to wait for the elevators. Mini-fridge. Free wifi. You can request "down alternative" pillows, which was great for my allergies. There is a CVS like a block away for when you need to frantically buy more bobby pins for your wig or band-aids for your blisters from wearing stupid cosplay shoes or a replacement for the lipstick that fell out of your purse at the con, not that any of this ha
Otakon 2022: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
xenoglossy replied to windseeker's topic in Otakon 2022It was indeed on Twitter: But it wasn't two weeks in advance of the deadline, it was one week. And since there are people who don't use Twitter or Instagram, I'm not sure why it wasn't announced in the news section of the website (since everyone has to look at the website if they're applying for panels in the first place). Regarding the missing ribbons, I realize that wasn't Otakon's fault, but I do question the complete lack of communication about it, since a mass email to panelists or the like would allow people to make informed decisions about whether they wanted to go to th
xenoglossy replied to windseeker's question in Otakon Q & AA friend of mine did get a rejection last week, so they've at least started the process, but I haven't heard back yet either.
Otakon 2019: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
xenoglossy replied to ShiroNyako's topic in Post Otakon 2019Good: I loved the photo suite! None of the ones I've encountered at other cons have included pose coaching--the photographers are normally very perfunctory about the whole thing, whereas in this case it really felt like the photographer was working with us to make sure we got the best possible photos. And although I might have expected that this would slow things down, it seemed to be a well-oiled machine with short wait times for almost the entire con, including much of Saturday, so props to them for that. Also, after a lousy experience with the dealer's room at Anime Boston this year (i.e.,
Otakon Panel Feedback 2019
xenoglossy replied to viga's topic in Post Otakon 2019I really appreciate that they sent the videos anyway and I'm fine with the lack of commentary, but since they knew they weren't going to be there, I wish they'd edited in basic title cards or subtitles with the song name and/or artist, or something like that. Some videos had their own title cards, of course, but for the rest of them I have absolutely zero idea how to find them again to inflict them on other people, which I would've liked to be able to do. I guess, since it sounds like a lot of the videos were repeats from previous years, they just expected everyone would already know, but it's
