congoers

7

Also selfies I took with a few of the FE cosplayers (behold my 1.5 chins in most of those pictures, lol), and having way too much fun with Owain’s John Cena-alike hand pose.

It’s stupid and fun, I love it.

More people recognized me at this con as Ranulf than I’ve ever been recognized at an Oklahoma con, and there was something really, really validating about it all. Having a congoer shout in excitement in my direction when they saw me was a little startling but was also just as exciting for me, I think. I’m happy about it all. <3

As always, lemme know if you’re here, and I’ll tag you!

10 Easy Recipe Hacks for Cooking Food in Your Hotel Room
Traveling can be pretty expensive, but your meals don't have to be. Though hot dogs made in the cheap coffeemaker of your hotel room probably won't be the best dinner ever, you can bet that it'll be oodles cheaper than ordering room service or going to a fancy restaurant. If you're ever cash-strapped, or simply motivated by the logistical challenge of whipping up a meal with extremely limited resources, you can cook a number of food items with the coffeemaker and clothes iron that usually comes with a hotel room. The coffeemaker is great for making soft-boiled eggs, instant ramen noodles

“Con Creep Masterlist”
A list of known Midwestern Convention rapists and sexual assaulters

Hey guys! If you’re interested at all, the Midwest Con Safety Squad is compiling a list of known offenders that attend conventions. Please signal boost, and if you are aware of other offenders please feel free to message me, Ren Drincic, on facebook! We hope this knowledge can help keep young congoers safe from predators that attend these events. Feel free to join the group as well if you’re interested in setting up rides or roommates for any upcoming cons!

Working for Aniplex was a terrific experience and I can’t thank @acparadise / @aniplexcosplay enough for this oppurtunity. It was very fitting that my final cosplay was Ryoji - the Fortune arcana. Especially having a Makoto Yuki present and, as in the movies’ canon, helping him at work.

With Ryoji in particular, it felt more in-character and comfortable to wish congoers a good rest of their convention, compliment them, tell them to get home safe, and offer them a free calendar.

Please take note of Junpei Iori’s hat-card and how I failed to hold up my arcana card because I was too preoccupied with being bishounen.

So glad you're writing the thing, it'll be great! :D Are you going to Sherlock Seattle? I've got flights & tickets & it's my first Sherlock con! I'm trying to figure out which hotel to stay in and I'm just so excited.

Thank you! And yes, I am going to Sherlock Seattle. :) I’m glad you’ll be there, too! It’s been great, the last two times I’ve gone–great panels, lots of cosplayers and vendors, positive atmosphere. If you’ve got the budget (or can split a room with others), The Silver Cloud hotel is within walking distance and is lovely and they usually arrange a group rate for congoers. I’m so looking forward to it! :)
