Tekko is two months away and I haven’t seen a thread yet. What are you most excited for? Anyone else a little weirded out by all the wrestling guests they keep announcing?
>>
>>10102634
I'm glad the rave was better last year. Seems like they actually put some thought into it, it being anime themed and not just club mixes like it was years before.
>>
I'm excited that the con gets the whole building this year
>>
I'm excited for the music, but especially TeddyLoid.
>>
It seems like it’s taking forever for them to announce fashion stuff
>>
They seem to be taking forever to announce a lot of things this year.
>>
>>10107272
>>10105993
To be fair they did that last year too
>>
I stopped going to tekko because it became a Lolita con rather than an anime con. I get the irony of saying this on /cgl/.
>>
>>10107433
It didn't though

it's a wrestling con
>>
Teddyloid is literally the only reason I'm going.
>>
Looks like one of the fashion brands is by one of the musical guests.
>>
With the added space this may be one of the better tekkos in a while. Excited for Myth & Roid. Really stacked with music so far. hope some good announcements are coming. Wrestling may draw some people, figure they'll have 1 show and some autograph sessions not totally interested but they're branching out. They always go against steel city con (bleh) i can see them drawing more this year.

if he can even get past customs
>>
>>10107433
> small portion of the event doesn't cater to me, everything is ruined and I can't have fun anymore
>>
They should announce a brand on the same day as a wrestler so there's double whining
>>
Who are the wrestlers?
>>
Angelic Pretty is the main brand this year
>>
The only time I went was last year because a guest I wanted to see attended but I have to say, it was a super shitty con and I'd never go back or recommend it to people. Was last year just a fluke or is it normally that shite?
>>
>>10116208
What didn't you like about it specifically? It's hard to say if the bad things are usually like that or not, when we don't even know what it is you didn't like.
>>
>>10116404
It seemed really unorganized, the opening ceremonies jumped around time slots and locations, then the website falsely advertised what some badge levels got you and there ended up being a lot of arguments with congoers and staff because they dropped the ball on the lines for a lot of events like the concert. Saw a girl break down in tears because they told her she bought the wrong badge even though it was their fault the website was wrong.
>>
>>10116207
Jesus christ this looks nasty in so many different ways. Why does the model look so dirty?
>>
>>10116453
i believe it's a picture of one of the designers and not a model
>>
>>10116453
Nasty and dirty? Anon are you okay?
>>
>>10116479
She just looks horrible. It's probably the terrible shoop but still, it's an awful pic to represent the brand.
>>
>>10116486
Yeah they should use your frumpy ass instead.
>>
i really want to model for AP, what are their measurement requirements like? anyone here modeled for them before? I’ve never modeled before and I didn’t know if they were looking for a specific height range/waist/bust range etc
>>
>>10104170
The sewing convention was neat and all, but I liked when the vape convention was going on. Looking at all the smoke through the windows was fun.
>>
>>10116687
Height around 5'2-5'5, but they do accept some shorter and some a bit taller, cute and young looking faces, thin as in you fit into all the dresses OPs included comfortably(no stretching brand).

Tl;dr version
Bust around 30-34in, waist under 27in, and height 5'2-5.
>>
>>10117362
nayrt but do you think I'd have a chance at 32/25/36 5'3?
>>
>>10117423
Are you cute? Then go for it.
>>
>>10117757
>>10117423
I'm sure if it came down to it they are over look > measurements
>>
>>10117783
Brands take a certain owl inclined individual who's face looks like it got wrecked by a bus so I doubt it.
>>
Depending on outcomes I might avoid the fashion show this year. A local ageplayer is really trying to model for AP. She’s thin, moderately attractive, and modeled at Tekko in the past so chances are relatively good she’ll get picked. I’ll let other people be blissfully ignorant, but it kind of bothers me.
>>
I’m excited for the music guests this year.
>>
>>10118679
I don’t really see how a person just doing their thing would bother you, but keep on with your judgement anon.
>>
Tekko just announced Lady Sloth!! Super excited that they're coming
>>
>>10118679
Don’t blame an age player for you not being naturally cute enough for AP
>>
>>10121353
I’m confused about being cute enough for AP? I just don’t want to watch the fashion show if I have to see an age player on stage. It weirds me out. I watch almost every year but knowing about it and seeing it makes me feel gross and I don’t want to feel gross looking at clothing that I love.
>>
>>10122004
You're very sensitive.
>>
>>10122004
Good chance the models have all sucked a cock too.
>>
>>10122004
What if they're all secret ageplayers
>>
>>10122004
Does t bother you knowing that most people you talk to have fucked? Grow up.
>>
>>10122010
I was assaulted by a man obsessed with ageplay who picked me to attack because of my clothing .and so seeing people who portray that lifestyle and then turn around and wear the clothing in a widely seen forum like that just kind of bothers me. I won’t go out of my way to stop anyone else from seeing it, I’d just rather not go if that’s the case.
>>
>>10122060
Not knowing doesn’t bother me, but if I know it does. I’d rather I didn’t know so I could enjoy the show like I did last year before it was mentioned to me.
>>
>>10122055
I’ve most definitely sucked cock, but I’ve never fantasized about “daddy” porn.
>>
>>10122187
That sounds horrible and I’m sorry, but please don’t let it affect the way you see fashion and other people. The fashion had nothing to do with it. He just sounds messed up. Maybe try seeing someone about it?
>>
>>10123188
Anon clearly has grievances with ddlg, not with lolita fashion.

Hi goose! I hope Tekko is shit for you and you find another hobby to embarrass yourself in.
>>
>>10126310
To be fair to goose, I think most of cgl dislikes the person they are talking about.

But while we're talking about goose, all frilly friends be on the look out for her, she has a habit of finding young and impressionable lolitas to prey on
>>
>>10126315
same with a certain manipulative wannabe model named MA. steer clear.
>>
>>10126383
To be fair to MA, goose is in a completely different league of awful than MA.

tangientially I don't even know what happened with MA other than people just saying something happened and never elaborating
>>
>>10126310
I'm not goose, but okay K8.
>>
>>10126423
MA takes new Lolitas at cons "under her wing" and tries to tell them what to do, then gets upset when they do fine without her. Happened at another con where she befriended a model and then got jealous that girl got more attention than her.

She also hogs the makeup/hair stylists and acts like they're only there for her. So that's annoying.
>>
>>10127109
This is my first tekko and who tf are these people? Are they from the local comm in the area?
>>
Can you guys take it to lolcow?
>>
Anyone interested in joining a discord for the fashion show models? Tips for posing, coordinating accessories wig emergencies etc.
>>
>>10127127
goose is a local who got banned from the con, but not from tekko and is expected to show at tekko and possibly start some shit.

ma isn't local and i don't think she's coming to tekko at all this year

>>10127141
it's tekko relevant we swear
>>
>>10127230
Drama and community vendetta are against the rules. Fuck off to the farm you drama mongering shit, I don't want to hear about Goose or MA take your hatewank somewhere else.
>>
MA isn't relevant and I don't know why anyone brought her up but it's fair to post warnings about creeper photographers and sketchy dudes at cons, so it's fair to post about goose. She stalked one of my friends around an event we were at, and she also tried to manipulate another friend into being her sugar mama and there's additional harassment that I don't know the details of, so watch out for her if you're young and into J fashion or transformers. She is definitely going to be on the hunt for new prey at Tekko

Warning done, thread can go back to being dead :P
>>
Did they already give responses to models? I wanna know if I’m in or not lol
>>
Any other lone lolitas going?

Also, we don't know what day Imai Kira has panels, right? I'm trying to my schedule my plans to make sure I can meet her. I hope she has her own booth full of merch!
>>
>>10130063
Applications just closed this past Thursday, patience Anon!
>>
>>10130096
Official panel schedule isn't up yet, but tentatively it looks like she will have a panel Saturday evening
>>
I got accepted for panel but I wish I had a copanalist to help me put
>>
What's your panel about? I can help if it's not too specific.
>>
Model emails were sent. Who got in?
>>
who all got in for AP?
>>
>>10137039
Obviously not >>10136281
>>
This thread is dead and it makes me sad. What are your tekko plans, gulls? I'm going to be seeing old friends and getting drunk.

my partner and I will be in AA and do mostly original artwork (usually animals or cute witchy things). Anything yall are looking for in terms of buttons/stickers? we've got a bit of free time to make some new small items.

>>10138471
Omg could you do any cutesy hedgehogs?

Any Bearded dragon. I purchased a small print last year from someone.

Anyone aware they were doing a Sunday flea market? I'm excited usually find some cosplay stuff at colossals flea market.

>>10138471
Make alpacas and I will buy all of them.
>>
>>10130096
I'll be a lone-lita at the tea party. My friends missed getting tickets and are leaving early.

Also do people dress on theme for the tea? The theme makes no sense for AP with their sparse space releases this past year. Plus they weren't even created by the designer who's attending.
>>
>>10139924
I dress to match the location not theme, I don’t like Kawaii Lolita themes like space

Beardies have long been on my list- I've got geckos and frogs, but I have a beardie and uro at home and I'd love to make a full lizard sticker set, along with a turtle and pocket pets set.

I've been requested to make a general farm animal sicker set before (I've gota chicken set), so maybe I can slip an alpaca in there too ;)

lmao she's not a Tekko guest, she's just going to sit in a local artist's table for an hour.

You quoted the post so you must have seen who posted it, get out of here with your vendetta
>>
>>10141684
Yikes, that's actually more cringey in context.
>>
>>10141684
This is confusing, so is she a guest under Puvithel or a guest for Tekko?
>>
>>10141772
She's a "guest" for Puvi. They're friends and K8 shills her jewelry in exchange for getting it for free.
>>
>>10141881
Can someone explain to me the hype around Puvi?
>>
>>10142150
would like to know too - her products are sub-par quality, the artwork on the clothing is terrible, the printing for them is washed out. why is this ita mess hosting events and having guests?
>>
>>10142150
>>10142178
I honestly don't know. I guess she promotes herself well, but the only people I see wearing her clothes and jewelry are K8 or fatties with no sense of style since she does inclusive sizing (yet can't province models with appropriate items or guidance) . Honestly her designs look like a child drew them. Her quality is artsmoo tier. She he has a terrible attitude and is really pushy at her booth. Plus not related to her as an artist, she looks like shit all the time. She looks dirty and her hair is greasy.
>>
>>10142178
>>10142274
I don't get it either because no one ever seems to be wearing her despite her popping up at so many cons, and her stuff is really bad. Definitely think this k8 thing was just a way to get people talking about her, so I guess that worked.
>>
>>10142150
>>10141577
We get it, goose, you hate k8 and Puvithel.
Get a new hobby please

Schedule is finalized, anything interesting to u guys?
>>
>>10142364
So when is autographs with Kira Imai? Or will she just have a booth that she will be working like at other events and we can just ask her then? The schedule just says Kira autographs but there's another guest with the same name.
>>
Does anyone know any hotels near by, preferably for a decent price. Transportation isn't a problem.

>Sunday flea

What should I bring to sell? Got too much crap but can’t bring all.

Would ppl want to buy FATE merch? Or plushes

>>10143205
Can someone point me in the direction of the info on the flea market? Do I have to sign up to sell?

NVM, found it. http://www.teamtekko.us/tekko-flea-market/

Has anyone sold lolita at the market before?

>>10143303
First time flea market at tekko
>>
>>10143303
The items allowed for sale doesn't mention j-fashion as an okay item to vend, but you could always message them to check. Bear in mind that the tea party overlaps with the flea market, which might hurt sales for lolita stuff.

For those anons who are going to Tekko for the 1st time, there are some decent food recs in last years thread. Check in advance to see if these places are still open, of course.

Any other lolitas staying at the Courtyard?

>>10145468
Restaurant Anon here: I updated it.
The DLCC is in the cultural district and right next to the strip so there's a load of stuff to eat if you don't mind walking a few blocks. Stuff in the strip is only open during the day, but you can find loads of ethnic stuff there among other things. Pittsburgh also has an enormous Chinese population so there's a fuckton of great asian food if you're willing to drive/uber a bit (recommend Chengdu Gourmet or Teppanyaki Kyoto personally, those places are incredible)

Recently more restaurants have opened across the river by the stadiums, highly recommend Burgatory ($$ lots of vegan options including vegan shakes!) However keep in mind there are a ton of sports fan traffic and I have been harassed walking around in normie clothes by people drunk off their ass. I do not recommend going alone in cosplay or lolita, go in a large group or in normie clothes.
There are these within walking distance of the convention center:


Bill’s Bar and Burger $$ (Closest food, underneath the connected hotel, huge restaurant space and the food is decent. Probably will be crowded)
Condado Taco’s $(very close open till 2am, Haven’t been but got a lot of good reviews)
Butcher and the Rye $$$ (best for drinking)
Proper Brick Oven (italian/pizza) $$
Tako (korean mexican fusion) $$
Meat and Potatoes $$$ (call ahead, celebrities come here. Very busy)
Sushi Kim (korean) $$$ (get korean not the sushi.)
Little Bangkok (Thai) $$ (imo best Thai in Pittsburgh)
The Oyster House (sea food and fries) $
Subbas (nepalese) $ (a bit far, across the river and looks like a hole in the wall but amazing food! Get the chicken Momo)
Joe and Pie (pizza/russian?) $ (some of the food is expensive)

Avoid Nicky's Thai kitchen!! Over priced and last time I went the tofu was rotten
>>
>>10146137
>>10146137
There's a Burger King near by on the corner of Smithfield and Seventh. A Subway down the street on Penn Ave. Pittsburgh is obsessed with Subway there are a total of 8 locations in the downtown area. Penn Ave’s sister street Liberty Ave has a group of 4 fast food restaurants, coming from the direction of Penn Ave turn right and head down about 3 blocks.

For more walk down Penn toward 9th street. Turn left onto Stanwix then another left onto Forbes Ave. Its about a 15 minute walk. You’ll be in Market Square which has a Noodles and Comp., Moes, Chipotle etc. If you get lost just ask for directions to Market Square, most people either know where it is or will be heading that way.
>>
>>10146137
Restaurant anon, what's the best coffeeshop near the convention center? Down to walk a bit or Uber for good coffee.
>>
>>10141577
Didnt you guys know how special she is! She has serious medical problems now(that fake anxiety), and is into girls(tried to jump on that LGBT bus) but is still married to her sickly husband.
She is so awesome and such a great role model for the community.
>>
>>10146246
There's your typical Starbucks in the hotel across the street, thats the closest.

on Penn going toward 9th there is Cafe 808 thats the closest local. Market Square which I listed directions to here : >>10146139 has Nicolas Coffee Co which I have heard nothing but good things about. Its hard to find but its on the same side as Dunkin Donuts.

If you don't mind a longer walk/taking an uber go to the strip district. There are a couple of local coffee specialty shops. La Prima Espresso company has Italian style coffee and is my preferred place.

Onsite at Tekko.

1. They are really disorganized (reg line) and nothing is on time (ie autographs)

In all honesty, as a weeb guy who is a normie in most regards how the hell do I talk to girls at these anime cons? Or traps. Like this is the only place I can meet people with similar hobbies, but idk how to do it. I can talk to people without similar hobbies.

As someone who deliberately went to this thing to meet people, I can tell you this.

You don't, it's terrifying. It didn't help that there seemed to be an ungodly number of kids in MHA gear. Is that just me?
>>
Is it just me or is Lor really ita

And that's disappointing, I have yet to really talk to anyone aside from my few friends

Anyone know what happened to the concert, Teddyloid is apparently AWOL.

>>10147802
He was caught having sexual relations with an underage con attendee and is in for questioning.

If you really want a pic I can throw it on tomorrow. It's really my "casual" cosplay for when I get tired of wearing heels.

Do lolitas want their pictures taken like cosplayers? I always find them adorable, but feel like I'd be bothering them

>>
>>10148563
there's usually one or 2 lolitas that don't want you to take their photos, but most are friendly and will pose if they're not on their way somewhere or eating (same rules apply as for cosplayers). One random lolita gave the excuse that she doesn't allow pics because she has a history with stalkers? She looked well-dressed but it could also be a good way to turn people down
>>
>>10148915
Nice vendetta
>>
Honestly AP was the most boring part of the fashion show. The music on a loop was distracting, and I know the models were just following direction but after Nuezzz / Ghost Girl they seemed so dull in comparison. I've been at other AP shows where they had props like giant food cut outs to match the print and fun staging and poses. It was hard to even appreciate the dresses because the weird colored lighting made it hard to tell what they look like.
>>
>>10148915
what the fuck is your problem, ana-chan?
>>
>>10148915
Better than some of the ghouls AP picked.
>>
>>10148661
They were awful. I left mine in my hotel room. I didn't have space to bring it home. I expected it to be the red AP polka dot set. I was disappointed to see it was just green and purple paint splatter on black ceramic.

Same, Lady Sloth was excellent despite a few sound and timing hiccups. I liked the lighting and smoke effects for the gothic pieces. Girl in the queen coordinate ruled the stage. Nuezz / Ghost Girl had models who owned the runway. I liked watching Ota-Q's collection even if some of the models seemed new, it was cute and enjoyable.

AP was lackluster. The coording was questionable. Cat ears or strawberry bag. Pick one not both. Red paired with grey mint and pink. Black purse with Navy main piece no other black being used (I believe? Hard to tell in my pictures). These are things I'd expect from a con attendee fashion show, not a brand. Did Candy do the styling for these? It was just... eh.

I did not take a photo. It was not worth a photo and it's long left behind now.

I'm annoyed that literally the only thing the VIPs got differently is this tea set...I would have spent that $50 upcharge else where.

This con is a dumpster fire. My suggestions would be to drop the lolita stuff completely and stop catering to such a small niche of people, get actual sponsors like Bandai and Funimation, and do a 21+ lounge area and event that sells liquor.

Move the 21+ Sangawa to Tekko in a different area during the evenings, and make Sangawa strictly a lolita convention.

Also never do wrestling shit again. That was fucking stupid and I'm forcing whoever came up with that decision to eat a glass bottle.

The issue is tekko caters to mommies and daddies with little kids and liberal shit with no fun allowed. It's not even a big cosplay convention at all, so it's not like it's a serious con and not many people do crazy stuff here and party. Sangawa is super lit.
>>
>>10149480
I wonder if the lolitas bring in a decent amount of revenue though that warrants catering to them?

Also, I was so confused because there was supposed to be beer served in some hall and it was never there. I'm in my late 20s and want to enjoy a freakin drink at the con without leaving the center. Likewise, can they PLEASE offer better food options inside? That pork belly bao was vomit-worthy.

> not many people do crazy stuff here and party.
I don't know what hotel you were at but I had loud, drunken cosplayers cussing in my hallway Friday night until 5 am, and on Saturday night someone was vomiting so badly the ambulance was called.

Tekko in my experience has always been a huge party con, because the con sucks ass and none of my friends can enjoy it sober.

PA has fucking archaic liquor laws and I've been told several times by staff that serving liquor in the DLLCC would be too expensive, which I think is bullshit and they just don't want to be responsible for any possible drunken damage to the expensive building. Everyone there is drinking drinking anyway. I walked in with four mini bottles of tequila and a mini dab kit because there was no bag check this year.

I heard from a staff member the reason there was wrestling was to draw more ppl to break the 10k attendance mark. The goal is once a con breaks 10k, then they can attract Nintendo/gaming companies and other big names and better Japanese celebrities. Otherwise bigger names won't take a con seriously if they have less attendance than that. I don't think the wrestling guests added that much alone, but this Tekko broke 11k attendees so who knows what next years line up can be.
>Sangawa
Could someone describe this to me, since I've never been? I've heard some say Sangawa is nothing more than a Hentai con with an open bar full of lonely cougars and tigers.
>>
>>10149534
So they are in a good place for sponsorship! That's awesome. It sucks that this is I think the first time the con has broken 10k attendence in like over 10 years of operation though.

I think sponsored badges would help them out a lot. Free advertising for whoever and it clears up their marketing department to actually advertise better. Right now they rely on free college and high school volunteers and it shows.
>>
>>10149534
Sangawa is all 18+, so it's just cool older people drinking and bullshitting. Way more chill

>they rely on free college and high school volunteers
This is one of the greatest areas of weakness Tekko has. I noticed that some of the areas (like baggage check in) was mostly manned by 15 year olds with maybe a single older person with previous experience over seeing everything. Not that baggage check-in is a huge responsibility, but you could tell they were spread thin. I can't say 1st hand but I heard there were staff who have been helping run Tekko for like the last 4 years that up and quit because of shit going arwy beyond their control. - and it left gaps in the flow where respnsible ppl were needed. Ppl who never did security before in their life were filling in and supervisors were missing. I'm impressed the con didn't go to shit, they seemed to have dodged major problems that tanked other cons, but if Tekko is going to grow, and they DO want it to grow, they got a year to figure this manpower/management problem out.

>>10149544
Since it's aimed toward an older crowd, other than the alcohol, what sort of events/panels does it host? Anything you can mention from the last time you went?

It was good to see there were a lot of great JoJos this year.

Sangawa is a lot of 18+ hentai funny panels. Some cool boomer history panels. Most of the draw is that the game room had tokyo attack with initial d, and the social with the free booze and chill dance party. Seems like there's less drama at sangawa and mostly just chilling.

There's a more mature atmosphere without autists running around and screaming and it's a lot easier to talk to people imo.

I give them props for trying to break a record, but seriously, beyblades? It was as ill-conceived as having wrestling at an anime con. They could have come up with a better record to break.

Tekko is also about Japanese pop culture, and wrestling is crazy big in Japan right now.

Yeah, I get that, but they were American wrestlers. Tekko's wrestling show was as American as you can get, it had nothing to do with Japanese pop culture... But how awesome it would have been if they got some Japanese wrestlers like Asuka or some of the others? Hell, I'm not even into wrestling and I would have paid to see that. I'm just saying they could have planned that a bit better. And the fact that 1/3rd of the seats around the ring were empty kind of points to that. Not a total failure, but not a hit either. Still glad they broke the 11k mark for whatever reason. I hope they can plan better and break this years number again with things that actually have to do with Japanese culture.

True. That would have made it so much better.

I rather enjoyed myself

Same, overall I had a great time. I don't remember if this was there last year, but they had this hilarious table flipping game in the arcade. You pound on the table a few times building up rage then flip it over at people. You could select different scenarios like a teacher getting pissed at her students, a bride at her wedding flipping a giant wedding cake at her groom and the family, a ghost flipping his coffin at the mourners at his funeral, etc. The farther your table/cake/coffin went and the more ppl you took out, the more points for destruction you got. It's a short game but my friend and I had a hardy kek playing it.

I don't think they'll drop the lolita stuff as it's the only thing that makes them stand out as in east coast cons and they probably have dedicated staff members. Not sure how many attendees were there for J-fashion stuff, but maybe 200-300 max?

Their official posts promoting the con throughout the weekend were weak... they rely on their guests and fans of the guest to follow individual pages for updates instead of the con.
>>
Tekko was another solid performance. Did not feel like there were 11,000+ maybe because they opened a little more space and moved some things around to different rooms may of attributed to that. Wish they go bigger in the dealer and game room. Flea market will catch on. Get some international VAs you cowards raise the badge another 5 which is inevitable with attendance boom

I didn't make a single weeb friend or talk to a girl again ;_;

NOO Don't tell people about that hidden gem. They've had it for at least 3 years and I never have to wait to play it.
>>

No wonder no one bothered to talk to you

>never have to wait to play it.
Thats because each game takes less than 5 mins to play, anon.

>>10151386
You would think with how popular the con crush threads always are they would milk that aspect somehow
