Get in here /cgl/, Colossalcon just announced they're going through with the con in June and as expected people are reeing about how they are singlehandedly executing grandmas in the streets. What do you think?
>>
Colossalcon can't even check badges, I seriously doubt they'll be able to manage preventative measures like temp checks at the door, enforce mask-wearing, etc; Plus, there's the whole issue of getting people to wear masks in general at a water park.
Other cons are already kind of pushing it by reopening while vaccination levels won't have reached herd immunity by the time the event arrives... It might be a better idea for Colossal in general to just wait it out until September for CCE so that they can get information from other cons about ways to effectively enforce safety measures instead of going in quasi-blind.
>>
I personally find it hilarious that "vaccines work!! Get the jab!" until it comes time to have an event and suddenly the exact same virtue signalers are now saying "There's no evidence that the vaccines work well enough to have large gatherings of people safely..."
Literal clown world
>>
>>10591558
bruh it's not that they don't work, it's that they work and are effective through herd immunity like literally any other vaccine. we won't be at herd immunity by june.
>>
>>10591567
The goalposts shift again. What happens when we hit the magical 70% herd immunity? Oh, suddenly there's a new variant and now the goalposts have moved again.
Don't you get it? It will never be enough for them.
>>
>>10591572
is your whole thinking/conception of how a global pandemic works really based on an "us versus them" model? I know we're on a board that talks about dressing up as 2d Chinese cartoons for fun but damn you're delusion, I do not envy you friend
>>
>>10591581
great argument, plague rat
>>
>>10591578
If you're talking about the same people who, in the beginning months of an allegedly deadly pandemic that we had to cripple the economy for, lose jobs and any semblance of normalcy for, decided to endorse protesters gathering en masse because "white supremacy is a greater health threat than Corona", then yes, it is and has been an us vs. them thing.
>>
I agree it's kind of bullshit that people still think they won't go to a con until at least 2022. Ohio's doing pretty well at 30% vaccination rate at the moment. in a month or so it's not impossible to think it could reach 60%, which is pretty damn near herd immunity. Still, it's ultimately up to whoever would want to go.
>>
I guarantee you a good chunk of those complaining will still go anyway.
>>
I think they shouldn't reopen just because the world is still so messed up from covid right now.

For example, how are they going to get guests from Japan? Everyone will still have to wear masks with cosplay. The water park makes that a unique issue. Both water parks and cons are just crowded by default. If for some reason it's not crowded, it's not much of a con.
>>
>>10591603
Everyone knows the complainers are still going. Every con that is reopening is a break down of these posters
>10% actually going
>45% saying they won't go and holier than thou, already booked
>45% just buttmad that it's not the con that THEY wanted to reopen instead of being canned

Not bait. Serious question. If I were from Japan, I'd stay the fuck away from disease ridden American pools.
>>
>>10591626
Yeah I agree. I mean one of the big appeals of colossal is that it’s a waterpark con. People are not going to wear masks while swimming and they certainly aren’t going to wear them while doing photoshoots
>>
>>10591635
No, I'm saying who the fuck actually looks at colossal con and thinks "yeah, I want to go to that for the Japanese guests." There are infinitely better cons for that

Like holy fuck thanks for the laugh

Can you fucking losers not wait until early 2023? Do you REALLY have to go to a con in the next two years? is that all your life amounts to? Just going to anime conventions, spending money, and meeting unwashed dorks?

You're the reason why we're still going to be quarantining until 2024. You.

>>10591584
Based response. Libs will seethe about things re-opening this summer, but the reality of the situation is that no-one is going to give a FUCK about self-quarantining once the vaccination rate hits 60-70%. The vast majority of people have only been waiting for the shots to get back to normal, no more, no less.

FYI, that's 30% with one dose. 20% fully vaccinated, which is pretty much on par with the rest of the country.
But yeah, by the time June hits the majority of people in the country that want the vaccine will have gotten it.
Doomerfags in the comments of that tread talking about the indoor gathering limits (500 people or 25% or whatever the fuck it is) as if they're permanent. Are they that fucking dense that they can't realize those numbers are going to go up (possibly WAY up) come June?

Sounds pretty normal to me. $700+ is standard even before corona, get someone to split it with you

I'm sitting on five Kalahari rooms and have no intention of going. Still waiting for Colossalcon's details but if they don't move dates or cap, that's a no go for me. I'd rather cancel and return them to the $300/night rack rate fee than trade them off to some selfish weeb.

>less people, way less stupid people,
That's not an answer: The Swedish government was prepared before the rest of us, but took so light an action that they quickly had a problems with the virus.

I'm all for free healthcare, but the USA is giving vaccinations for free, so that's not relevant in this case.

When this con still existed did people actually swim and play in the waterpark? I can't imagine this goes very well with cosplay unless you have a swimsuit
>>
>we will be releasing more details over the next week

Translation: We'll let you know all the bad news in like a month or so after we've sold more tickets, and more people are committed to going.

Masks on at all times except when in the water. Anything that would gather people in close proximity (game room, etc.) will be cut.
I generally like Colossalcon, but at best this year will be dull, and more likely will be just an overall miserable experience.
You'll only be able to take your mask off long enough to pour some of your $50 Kalahari drink into your mouth in hopes that it will make you forget how terrible everything is.
>>
>>10592070
>this fucking doomer shit

>>>/out/
>>
>>10592054
A fairly large percentage of cosplayers bring swimsuit cosplays to wear at the waterpark. It's one of the main draws of the event.
It's mainly for photos, most people aren't going to "swim and play" in their full cosplay. There's an after-hours party they have during the con. They open up the waterpark during the late night hours, and a lot of people will wear regular swimsuits and get on the slides and stuff at that time, rather than during the day.
>>
>>10592054
Yeah, especially in the hot tubs, the wave pool, and the lazy river. The wave pool and outdoor area were basically packed with cosplayers doing shoots. Some people also rode the slides out of cosplay like >>10592077 said.
>>
>>10592054
the con is secondary to the fact that it's a water park. a lot of people wear a wig at most while hot tubbing, some tryhards have waterproof costumes, but the con isn't much like what you'd see in the music videos
>>
>>10592006
>if they don't move the dates
They won't. That would have already been mentioned if they were.
>or cap
Yeah, they might be forced to do that.

They're withholding details so people won't cancel. And I wouldn't expect those details to come in the next week like they said. Any post they make within a week will be a minor update and end with "we're currently working out the other details, and will get back to you soon!"
Followed up by a post six weeks later with all of the stuff that they know will be unpopular "Sorry we took so long to get back to you, we were so busy working on things...."
Do yourself a favor and make a fucking decision on your room within the next week.

Yeah that sounds about right, other than the no food or drink indoors. Those overpriced drinks are a huge money maker for the Kalahari, and they ain't gonna do anything to discourage people from buying them.
>7,000 person cap
Anyone have any idea what the typical attendance for the con is? Colossal has always been super fucking secretive about their numbers for some reason.
>>
>>10592214
>>10592216
Other than shit they can control like 7k people, panel, and shuttle stuff is the only thing they can hard enforce.

Like otakufest in Jan and Anime Dallas in December, went to those and same shit was said. Once you "leave the con event area" they don't give a fuck. For photo shoots just go do your own small meets in the parking lot, then walk back in.
>>
>>10592224

yeah it's gonna be pretty stiff, you're right anon

but the water park and outdoor areas are still open, and not under the con's jurisdiction. just hang out outside and you'll be relatively in the clear, that's the whole point of the con anyway

This is literally a "We are enforcing this to cover our ass to not be sued", like the disclosure was probably drafted by a lawyer which is smart. Basically if parties get to big or loud and people get sick, con can claim no fault. By the time June rolls around though I figure most of Ohio will be vac'd at least by the first dose anyways.

>>10592231
Probably a fair bit of fun honestly. I'm not staying at the con hotel as not only is it sold out but; It's far easier for me to do a small room thing of a handful of friends, and not be rolled into security checking on me or randos trying to sneak into a room party getting it busted.

Like I said shit was the same at OtakuFest and AnimeDallas when I went, just be smart. Don't come if you are at risk groups, and follow the rules at the con during the con. Tada, there is your answer. At the prior cons, people would just find the empty spaced out parts of the parking lots to do their photoshoots with their friends or related cosplay people, then return to the con.

Either way looking forward to it.
>>
>>10591552
>It might be a better idea for Colossal in general to just wait it out until September for CCE

for the 1000th fucking time

the con literally does not have a say in whether or not it cancels

only the government can shut it down

if the government does not shut it down and the con cancels on its own, they will get sued out the ass by their vendors and contractors and that will be the end of the con for good

this applies to every con

Can half of the people fuck and drink at a con? Yes. This is all that matters to them.

Can the other half scream profits over pandemic? Sure. The event places could give a rat ass shit as their bosses need the events going to get bills paid.

A binding contract is a contract that can not be stopped because no one in the government is going to stop it. Stop blaming the event you fuckwit retards.

>>10592812
I strongly believe they will sell out. People are screaming for some kind of escape from covid hell. Mandates are falling off in states. Dewine will cave to pressure. Hes bitch made.
I'm guessing you got a month before passes sell out. Once the room crowd see no hope in moving their rooms to next year they will buy them immediately.

>>
>>10592878
Yeah, I had a giggle at the amount of people asking if they could carry their rooms over to next year, which of course was totally ignored by whoever runs the Colossalcon FB page.
No you fucking dimwits, you can't carry them over until next year. The situation does suck because you're going to have to choose between giving up your room, or going to a subpar convention this year. But it is what it is, and no amount of angry reacts on FB is going to change anything.
And for future reference, when your questions go ignored, it's because the answer isn't what you want to hear. Like when people asked "Is Donnell still going to profit from Colossalcon?" after he "stepped down" (Yes, he will.)
>>
>>10592737
>>10592644
Aight, depending on the size of people showing up could dictate it. Suggestions, all I was thinking was maybe meetup at a bar or something during a food break.

There is a Japanese steak house with a few things north of the con.

Dude, same. "BUT IT WONT BE SAFE TILL NEXT YEAR THEN COVID WILL MAGICALLY BE GOOOOOONNNE" Fucking idiots. This is literally the stupidest time in human history. Not to mention people don't seem to understand contracts or how business actually works and that you can't keep pushing shit like this back.

For some reason these people think they are special and their opinions matter. Weird as fuck. Social media rots the mind though.

I dont do any of the panels or extra shit from cons, mostly stick to people watching and rave. So the restrictions don't bother me too bad. And kalahari has stopped giving a fuck a while ago. Last year there were videos of a packed Waterpark.
>>10593017

Ohio made a law about it this year. People are scared but I can promise you, the entire cons going to be packed and plenty of people won't be wearing masks or give a flying fuck. This will be like a normal colossalcon
>>
For those curious about the waterpark
-all indoor and outdoor jacuzzis are open
-all waterslides and wavepool are open
-florider is open
-monsoon saloon and swimup bar along with many other nice things are open
-yes they still have the giant refillable souvenir cups
>>
>>10593182
Oh I believe it. Social media pushes the "we are all scared and you should be too" agenda hard but majority do not give a fuck. It is gonna rule this year. And I plan on getting completely fucked up.
>>10593186
Based information anon. We were talking to a security guard at colossal east one year about those cups. They bring them in by the pallet for cons, east of 2019 made some absurd money that year.
>>
>>10593188
If you need anymore information about the con feel free to ask. The entire waterpark is pretty much open and so is the 7D stuff and the escape room.
>>
>>10593192
You know if they are doing rave or night swim? Night swim was lit last time I went.

You're talking about the water park you need to buy a wristband for go through a secured check point to get to? That area of free movement?
>>
>>10593221
No. Stop, anon. Colossalcon tickets are not sold out and will not sell out for a few weeks at least.

That got me to thinking though. It seems likely that water park tickets will sell out, considering they probably are selling a limited amount each day due to covid restrictions.
Might not be a bad idea to buy those online ahead of time, because without the water park, Colossalcon is a total bust, especially this year.

Update: They're letting people whose badges transferred from last year get forwarded to 2022 or to the other cons. It's a good move, I think, and will definitely win back a lot of the crowd, but without affecting room reservations I wonder how many people will care.
>>
>>10593182
Hi donnell
>>
>>10593972
>win back a lot of the crowd
Not really. People just like to virtue signal on social media. That crowd will continue to shit on Colossalcon, and every other con that happens in the next several months.
Ultimately, Colossalcon will sell all 7000 badges, and those regulars that shit on the con this year will all be back next year.
It's all just empty virtue signaling.

I'm surprised that wasn't already on the lengthy list of "health procedures" for the con.
Basically, no fun allowed at Colossalcon. You may have fun in your rooms until someone complains and shuts your party down.
Then you can sit quietly and drink until the weekend is over.
If they have even half of those restrictions at CCE I'm gonna be fucking livid.

I mean, I you'd assume that was the case, but they sure gave zero fucks about that when they basically ended the con a day early at CCE a couple of years ago.
I'm not anticipating anything that extreme happening, but if you get a few guests or anyone on staff with some authority that decides they don't like all the young people around, watch how fast they suddenly pretend to care about covid regulations just to fuck with you.

>we won't be at herd immunity by june.
Ohios vaccination rate by may is likely going to be over 50%
Add that to people already resistant from getting it due to factors like youth, blood type, or previous infection, and yeah, june is a pretty reasonable expectation.
July would be better, but waiting until labor day would be minimally improved at a lot of lost revenue.
Remember, cons require attendees. If all the cons are pushing back to the end of summer, most conventions won't survive.

>>10592248

>>10597020
How much do you have to drop anon?
24lbs over here. Let's do it together
>>
>>10597318
Ohio won't have a 50% vaccination rate "by May" (that would mean by the first of May), but it should be at that rate by THE END OF May. I don't mean to nitpick, but people keep using that phrase incorrectly.
I certainly wouldn't say waiting until labor day would be "minimally improved", because by then everyone in the country that wants to have the vaccine will have been able to get it. The difference between 50% and 75% or so is significant. This is why Colossal East will have a lot fewer restrictions in comparison to the horrible shitshow that Colossal Ohio is shaping up to be.
That said, I don't think Colossal really had any choice in the matter when it comes to Ohio's dates. They would have likely had to pay a stiff penalty to the Kalahari to postpone it, if they even would allow it at all.

So, are people bothering with cosplay at all this year? Incorporating masks into their costumes?
>>
>>10599280
A lot of people go mainly to do swimsuit cosplay at the waterpark, where masks generally aren't required.
Actually, Kalahari staff is fairly lax with masks in general. There shouldn't be any problems unless some of their staff decides they hate all the cosplayers/young people there and wants to fuck with them, which is a possibility.
>>
If you or someone you know has a Kalahari room, be sure to (tell them to) check your email for something from the resort. You need to confirm or decline your room by the end of the month if you want to keep it, or else they're keeping your deposit and kicking you off the room.

A bit over two weeks after tickets went on sale, and they are nowhere near selling out.
They have 6 pickup time options, and only 1 of them has sold out.
There's no way of telling exactly how many tickets have been sold, but it's likely around 1500 - 2000. Still a long way to go.
Shocking that they may not be 7000 people that want to sit quietly and drink in their rooms for three or four days.
>>
>>10601443

I wonder if only having badge pickups on the first two days has anything to do with it. I’d be willing to pay the money if I could pick up my badge on Friday or even Saturday.

>>10601828
They have badge pickup hours listed for every day of the event. My understanding is those pickup times are just the earliest you can pick up your badge.
>>10601835
Well, there is some truth to that. Whether or not they'll get "far more" sales closer to the con remains to be seen.
I think a lot of people are really hesitant to pull the trigger on buying a badge due to the overwhelming number of restrictions.

I'll be fully vaxxed this weekend. My entire group will be fully vaxxed before this con. I am absolutely going to this. I'll wear a mask when necessary & for, like, a week or so after just out of courtesy for those I may possibly come in contact with.

But this is why we got a vaccine in the first place. To be able to live normally again. The people I will be conversing with (most) will be 100% vaccinated. Just because some random 20-25% of jackasses in Ohio refuse to get vaccinated does not mean I'm going to be a bow to their whims. If they're simply never going to get vaccinated for political reasons, we're essentially never going to live again - unless we get vaccine passports. We don't have that now. We may never. For now, this is a calculated risk I feel comfortable taking - virtually zero risk to me, severely mitigated risks for those around me (mask + distance + being vaccinated + those around me are almost 100% vaccinated already).

Imagine only 7000 people at Dragoncon. Would it even be worth them having the con with that low of a headcount??
>>
>>10605662
You can't compare a con in June, in Ohio, that normally gets around 20K people to a convention that's in September, in Georgia, that normally gets around 80K people.
Georgia is one of the less strict states when it comes to covid restrictions, and they rolled back even more a few days ago. It's also three months later in the year than Colossal, which is a big difference.
I'm not saying there won't be restrictions at Dragoncon, but if there's an attendee limit, it won't be anywhere near as low as the 7000 Colossal has.

It's hard to say what CC will be like this year seeing how covid has changed a lot of things one way or another.

>Whats the vibe? Do people even cosplay?
it's a party con with cosplay all over, but from memory not all that much 'professional' cosplay. Vast majority of it is stuff you'll see is ebay/etsy/aliexpress level stuff, I mean it's an ohio con if you're looking for something big just skip and hope anime midwest happens.
>>
>>10606533
Whats the likelyness of getting laid?
>>
>>10606525
A lot of people do swimsuit cosplays at the water park. A lot of times these are pretty simple, just a swimsuit and a wig. Sometimes people may have a few accessories, etc.
Plenty of people do non swimsuit cosplays too, but you won't see a whole lot of extremely high end, hundreds or hours of crafting type cosplays there.
It's usually a good, chill time. I'm not sure how much fun it will actually be this year though, with their overbearing restrictions that don't allow for much of anything but sitting quietly and drinking in your room.
Maybe Colossalcon will start dropping some of those restrictions before the con, especially considering that tickets aren't selling very fast.
I'd love to see that happen just to see the meltdown that the cancel culture crowd has.

I hven't been keeping up to date on anything and yes I am NOT going to read the thread. How is the con looking so far? I ususally do the /cgl/ meet ups for the midwest cons and I live close by from Colossal. I was thinking about just doing a simple meet up, buy yall some hot n readys, party and then pass out in my car for a night. Should I even bother with it? I know a few other cons have been having security called on cosplayers hanging out and I really don't see any crazy room parties happening and I'm not going to buy a 4 day pass just to go for a single day.
>>
>>10606946
The con has a long list of restrictions including a 7000 attendee limit. Tickets are selling at a fairly low pace, probably due in part to the restrictions, and the uncertainty of whether or not they'll be strictly enforced, along with the general uncertainty due to the pandemic.
I think most potential attendees are waiting to see how things look in a few weeks before deciding to go or not.
So in answer to your question, things don't look good right now, but things could turn around by the time the con is here.
Sorry for giving you a kind of wishy-washy answer, but with this being the first notable convention to happen this year, it's hard to call this one.
>>
>>10606946
Its gonna be a blast. The only actual restrictions are in the convention center. The rest of the resort don't give a fuck

Going by the amount of hotels near the con that have sold out, I think it's going to be pretty successful. My friend was trying to book a place last night and pretty much every hotel was sold out leading to the con place

>>10608121
There's still 10 rooms available at Kalahari right now. And who knows how many people will still cancel last minute. Plus, off-site hotels not having a shuttle is going to hurt attendance also. So it's really kinda hard to say how successful it'll be

Just wanted to make it clear anon, when someone says the word 'bus' it usually does not mean 'private hotel shuttle service'. Do people forget that public transportation is a thing when referencing bus services?

Anyways...

What's the chance of room parties being a bust at the convention? few rooms open left but thinking about staying with some friends instead. Last thing I want is security kicking me and my friends out for having a few people over for drinks in our room
>>
>>10608277
I'm hosting a room party and I'm aware of a few others doing the same. The nightlife will be there. Most people do open door but if you're not into that you can probably travel with a few friends.
>>
>>10608121
It's interesting to hear that so many hotels are sold out, yet tickets are selling at a snail's pace. Looking at the website, they've probably sold less than a quarter of their meager 7000 limit.
I'm sure there will be a chunk on people buying tickets right before the con and on-site, but I still would have anticipated that they would be a lot closer to selling out by now.
I have the feeling that a lot of people are just gonna go hang out at the water park and skip the actual con entirely.
It seems the actual con may be a bust, but it could be a good time overall aside from that. It will be really interesting to hear feedback after the event is over.
>>

>I have the feeling that a lot of people are just gonna go hang out at the water park and skip the actual con entirely.
Honestly, I don't see why anyone would go to this con for anything other than the party, cosplay silliness, and maybe vendor hall. Anime Midwest is a month out from this and way more impactful with panels, shows, etc. If you're going for actual panels and content like that, why you wouldn't skip this con to save for a better weekend there is beyond me.
>>
>>10608436
>There is a counter?
There isn't a counter, but tickets are divided up into six different pickup start times. As of right now, only one of those slots has sold out (the earliest start time, as expected).
There's no way to tell the exact amount, but I can sort of extrapolate and estimate that they've likely sold less than 2000 tickets so far.

>>10608425
>People are not going for the con
Yeah, that's kind of the way Colossal always is. That said I'm pretty fucking sure they're way behind the curve on selling tickets this year. With less than a month to go until the con, only having a couple of thousand tickets or so sold is fucking laughable.
>>
I recall reading that a con badge is now required to buy night swim passes. Are people just going to skip that as well and do room parties instead? The night swim has been huge the past two years, but the cost of going may be too high for some now, I guess?
>>
>>10608508
Source? It's never required a badge
>>

Yeah it's supposedly a requirement, but there are ways around it. I recall some people mentioning they were allowed to buy multiple night swim passes (to give to their friends that didn't have con badges).
You could of course just barrow a con badge from someone and buy a swim pass. That's exactly what I did last year. Even as a loner with no 'real' friends at the con, I was able to barrow a badge from an acquaintance for 10 minutes to get that done.

>There isn't a counter, but tickets are divided up into six different pickup start times.
Which has no real backend metric, we can only assume it's divided evenly.
>As of right now, only one of those slots has sold out (the earliest start time, as expected).
Assuming we only see 1 sold out that means 1166 are sold thus far and the rest could be any other number of sold capacity; meaning the next slot could be 95% or maybe friday's slot is both at 80. It's impossible to speculate at this point since we have no hard metrics.
>I can sort of extrapolate and estimate that they've likely sold less than 2000 tickets so far.
It's a complete shot in the dark, for all we know the first badge pickup is under a limited number of staff limiting to the first 500 people.

It's stated on the website but it could also be one of those, and looks to be, a CYOA kind of deal. Any law office probably told them to put that there in the event the state of OHIO or someone raised hell. In that event they could easily pull the "well we only sold X number of badges which allowed Y number of people in" and have it all on paper be by the letter of the law following capacity rules laid down. It being properly enforced or not is a completely different story and would all be hearsay impossible to prove one way or the other.
