Now relocating to the Long Beach Convention Center on January 6-9. Are you going? What events are you looking forward to? What are your hopes/expectations for this con?
>>
>>10663819

No because it's getting cancelled.
>>
>>10663910
Not if newsom gets recalled and we get a REASONABLE governer who realizes there’s no point in forcing people to cower inside their houses and behind masks

They just cancelled LA Fleet Week which takes place *gasp* in Long Beach. That's a sign ALA 2022 has a high chance
of canceling from all levels of government.
>>
>>10663819
>Are you going?
Heavily on the fence about it. On one hand wouldn't mind a new venue as Ontario was fun but man it gets old in a very few hours. On the other hand, hotels around that area are stupid expensive unless chancing a motel+train in. Might pass on it this year and just go to another con that month or something.
>cheapest hotel walking distance is 450 for the weekend
>next cheapest one 2.5 miles away is 300 for the weekend
It also being the first year at a new venue, not sure about it being worth it vs. a wait and see. These prices are turning into AX level costs...

If LA comic con happens, I'll got to ALA but not holding my breath to either.
>>
>>10663919
Special elections usually have low Democrat/left-leaning turnout and this recall especially has a lot of support from Republicans. I voted no but the possibility of him being recalled is nonzero.
>>
In the chance this gets cancelled, where in LA can I hang out to meet and make friends with other cosplayers?
>>
>>10663948
Try the itasha meetups that seem to be happening every weekend in the post-pandemic dystopian future that is now.
>>
How were the previous years? Haven't gone before and considering going 2022.
>>
>>10664293
It's pretty hard to say what ALA will be like as the con is in a completely new location, this one being much more expensive. ALA when it was in the Ontario convention center was known for it's fun parties, decent vendor hall, cheap hotels around it, and ease to get to. I really am not sure how this is going to play out being on the beach+possible covid restrictions so no one really can answer the question. I wish I could say I am getting my hopes up but looking at the hotel prices as others have done, it's kinda hard to justify. The old location had a pretty bland convention hall but at least the hotels around it were stupid cheap
>>
>>10664308
I've been to the long beach CC before for another con and the hall isn't that great desu. You'd only like it if for whatever reason you really wanted to go to a hot topic.

Why are they raising prices when they'll have to refund everyone who bought a badge by November?

>>10663936
The right wing crazies that want to recall Newsom had to beg a judge to extend the deadline to gather barely enough petition signatures. Not enough Republican votes along with the candidates that the they are throwing are all terrible choices for the state is a good sign the recall fails miserably.

hell yes since I'm a nocarz and to get to ontario with public transit I'd first have to travel 10 miles to downtown just to get a train going 10 miles and more back in the opposite direction...LBCC is much simpler. I could take the train or a couple buses one of which is long beach transit.
>>
>>10665369
>>10665370
Newsom is the only reason why there isn't a spike in cases compared to the south. Why don't you move there since you're so desperately want to attend cons right away? The rest of the state can wait another entire year of no conventions if it means returning to normal.

This. It’s hilarious how many of them are freaking out about Californians living in other states. Yet they admit they want all the benefits of higher taxes (better infrastructure, an electric grid that works, an area that draws a diverse enough crowd to maintain top tier Asian restaurants and convention scenes etc.) but they want all the so called “freedoms” of living in a fuck all do what you want kind of state. California has a lot of real problems that’s absolutely true, but the pandemic response ain’t it. You want to live in a covid hot zone? Go move to Florida it’s cheaper anyways.
>>
>>10665081
That was how CA ended up with Schwarzenegger, so the possibility can't be ruled out until the results come in.
>>10664330
This desusenpai. If I recall correctly the lighting is kind of meh.
>>10664581
Probably starting to get desperate. Given the fact that they likely entered into a contract for the convention center and the fact that no con happened this year, they're possibly needing emergency funding as an organization and hoping enough stays to keep the lights on. Notice how they've been particularly tight lipped about their covid management plan/safety measures. They really should come out and say it if they're in trouble. ALA is a lot of good memories for a lot of people.
>>10671126
2023 at the earliest. At the absolute earliest and I've been saying that since last year. Nowadays that's even a bit iffy.
>>
>>10671126
The same remark was made when Otakon wanted to hold their con. Then they announced it with the mask mandate and they made these same people feel better.
>>
>Newsom doesn't get recalled
So there is still a chance that ALA 2022 could still be cancelled.
>>
>>10672792
I'd put it at like 1/3 chances of being canceled tbqh. There'll be masks but shit is basically plateaud right now.

The Arcane Maid Cafe owner is also the owner of Anifest LA. I was AA'ing at CC (Coast Con) before the pandemic and there was an incident with Anifest setting up a table to promote their own convention without the permission of CC.

I am not sure if the owner of Arcane Maid Cafe is a predator, but most likely a creep. Why else would a grown man "own" a maid cafe? I bet he exploits these young women as well. To me, the way the owner handled the criticism about his behavior rather like a typical narcissistic sociopath.

You know who else was a narcissistic sociopath?

Gabby Petito's boyfriend, Brian Laundrie

Just saying.
>>
>>10677691
>>10676904
IIRC the owner openly supported a child predator/rapist and got called out for typical con creeping and hiring underaged girls as maids? He also refused to pay any of his maids in the past,
>>
>>10676913
if you have an fb account ... just search for "anifest coast con" there should be a post about most of the tea that happened with the arcane maid cafe and anifest ( shoudl be from like 2018 or 2019). there was definitely more stuff that the ceo of anifest/arcane did because the list of offenses went way before coast con that year. iirc, there was also stealing a mailing list from another convention and spamming it with their own convention, stealing artwork from an artist from another country and putting it on a tshirt that anifest gave away to promote their event. if i can remember anything else, i'll update haha
>>
>>10677926
There is no way in Hell that cheap bastard agreed to pay any of his maids. And if he did, then he was scamming them the entire time. Maybe if they work his shitty food stands, then maybe, but anything outside of that, i highly doubt it.
>>
>>10677955
so he was scamming them, good to have confirmation.

> Allowed King Lin to continue photographing the Arcane maids even AFTER the arcane maids who, at the time, even TOLD Drew that King Lin was C R E E P I N G them out. But ... Drew just continued to defend King Lin.

Oh no, it is worst than a scam.

I heard that the Arcane maid's have to pay for Drew's rent and car if they want to be a maid.

Not only that, I also heard he made one of his maid's pay $1400 for 1-bedroom in his house that he rents for $2000 lol.

What an asshole!

I hope your shitty maid cafe and anime convention burn in HELL!

Choke on King Lin's jizz, you POS.

And pay your own rent you fucking parasite!

I'm feeling a bit optimistic about the vaccine card mandate. Maybe, this will keep all the normies away and bring us back to the golden days of anime conventions like in the late 90's to early 2000's that i've heard so much about.
