Oh right, I forgot to mention, there were a ton of vendors, which was nice, and diverse enough to be interesting, but sadly most of it was either very expensive or not worth the money. Did visit a few workshops when you went up the escalator. Overall it was a nice convention, but you notice they need to work a lot on improving it, but I guess it could be expected, as MIA was taken over from Belgium I think (?), and just after Covid.

Don't know if anyone noticed it, but the air in MIA's congress center was incredibly dry. Got a sore throat because of it...

Rule one, stay hydrated whatever the atmospheric conditions are inside or outside a venue!
>>
>>10689307
Yeah, but this was rediculous. I was constantly switching between drinks and Vicks blue, still got a sore throat even though I drank almost 6 liters.
At home I put my air humidifier to 60% for 3 days. Didn't need to drink and my sore throat magically disappeared in 3 days.

Keeping humidity in check matters!

Mid-Autumn Festival season is upon the northern hemisphere (idk if you Aussies celebrate it in your own autumn or just take the Chinese calendar date). Post lolita coords or cosplays inspired by celestial themes or the characters in the classic story, wa or qi or other lolita looks that would work for cute moon viewing meetups, or even just cute fun mooncake designs or flavors to have at a Moon Festival themed meetup.

The three most common issues I see from the utaite/amateur community is trying to fit too many syllables in a phrase, sticking too hard to proper grammar, and use of very declarative statements in lyrics.

The first one is pretty common when writing english versions of songs because of the fundamental differences in english and japanese structure, and it's difficult to avoid. Japanese has very compartmentalized syllables nearly all in a consonant-vowel sequence pair and english has a lot of flowy, stretchy, consonant-only sounds. Trying to both translate meaning and fit words into an existing melody is extremely difficult to do. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices in literal meaning and try to recreate the general mood of the song instead, or make small melody changes like stretch out english syllables over two notes.

I think this is often apparent in SYA's songs because they were written with japanese language in mind first, since they were composed by SHUN.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DxOO_Tzofo
In Phoebe's song Through the Microphone there's a pattern of [Do thing] and [we'll do thing] where the "and" doesn't quite work for me, I think it might have been written in Japanese first.
https://feebeechanchibi.bandcamp.com/track/through-the-microphone
For the most part her EP is a good example of how to do lyrics right.
>>
>>10689382
The second are somewhat tied together and are apparent in certain structures. There is sometimes an overall sense that a song is written too conversationally, like a person talking to another, and not "poetically" enough. Conversational lyrics can work, like in Eminem's Stan, but not really for most idol songs about broad dreams and nonspecific love. Never be afraid to break proper grammar or cut out words if something sounds good or fits better.

For examples, here on the line starting "The future's so unclear..."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KQqEqta9fs
In this one, the intro is awkward but the verse starting from "Turn the page.." is much better

We all drew prints, diy'ed or designed pieces we want to have/make.
Imagine you have unlimited funds to create a lolita brand from scratch, hire anyone you want as long as you're in the green, what would you do/who would you get on board?

Some other questions:
>What would be your brandname?
>What substyle style would you sell?
>Who would you compete with? AP, Moitie, Bodyline, Taobao etc
>What themes/materials would you use?
>Would you have a specific color palette/brand color?
>What would you focus on selling? Accessories, mainpieces, cutsews..

The cost of taking Uber has doubled where I am (SF Bay Area). Took a Uber last week and a ride that used to cost me around $20+tip ended up being $44+tip at a non-peak time. Lyft is even more expensive. Also the carpool option is disabled on both apps because of corona, so your cheapest option has automatically been thrown out the window.
If you’re gonna uber to a con, stock up on food, water, etc. and bring plenty of backstock with you because traveling around is gonna cost ya.
>>
>>10689287
Where I'm at the pricing isn't too bad, but I routinely lose rides because of lack o availability. I haven't seen anything like it since college. I went to a small school in bum fuck nowhere and ubers were never availability.

Thoughts on tip jars? Personally I don't see the point of them at cons lol but I'm curious about what you gulls think.
>>
>>10689365
Tip jars? For what? What are you sucking dick in the aa kek? This is stupid imho.
>>
>>10689365
Tip jars are and always will be stupid unless you’re busking or something. Learn how to price your goods to make money, relying on a tip jar is probably the only thing more cringe than “I’ll draw your face for $1”

What are everyone's hopes/expectations for this con? Colossal Ohio didn't enforce masks, and the Kalahari gives zero fucks, so this could be a rare mask-free convention.
Personally I'm just looking forward to chilling at the water park and punishing my liver with as many $30 drinks as I can handle.

No, I'm too lazy and you're apparently really bad at googling.
Stop relying on the absolute top layer of the surface web. Look at actual sites instead of just Google image results. There's a fb bpn account, tags on tumblr, Tokyo fashion, probably insta, etc. None of which will be indexed on Google images.
Also, even looking at Google image results if you JUST type in "black peace now" a fuck ton comes up so idk what you're doing wrong desu.
