It's happening in a few months, anyone planning on going? Any cosplay plans?

And here I was thinking it was time to get the thread going just yesterday. I'm not planning, but guaranteed because this is the one I'm sold on for life. Even wanted to do all four until seeing Texas and North fall on the same dates. No matter, since this is the main event.

Right now, the biggest issue is figuring out where to stay. There's gonna be at least several dozen people I recognize there but one of my guys is struggling to find something and so am I. Predicted course of action is Acen -> fly down to Atlanta for Momocon -> ride up with another of my guys for Colossal. I expect only good things from this one (i.e. being wasted 95% of the time while awake and sleeping for three hours a night), as always.

I'm staying at a motel nearby and just ubering between the Kalahari. It's my first time going so I'm looking forward to it.

My kid and I wanted to go but the dates didn't line up. We're looking at Anime Ohio or Matsuricon, anyone know if those (or any other con in the area) are good?

Hoo boy, hood luck with that. They have little to no presence in Sandusky. One guy I met there last year said he waited like an hour before one accepted.
>It's my first time going so I'm looking forward to it.
As you should. My expectations were insanely high the first time, and they were exceeded 10x over. Keep your ears to the ground for either villa stuff directly off site or a guy offering "Miku juice" if you wanna find the really good stuff.
>>
>>10749345

Fuck, how about normal taxis? Those still exist in America right?

If it's anything like the shit you get offered at AX I'm all for it

>>10749362
>Taxis
You probably have a better chance, but considering even rinky dink motels are over $200 a night that weekend, I expect taxis are no different.
>AX
Haven't been myself, but the guy who serves it never shuts up about LA. So there's a very good chance you've already had a taste.

It's not too bad actually, around $750 for 5 nights. Split between friends and it's nice and cheap.
I'll be sure to bring my fumo too

I'm taking the Greyhound bus from Cleveland to Sandusky. It will arrive around around 2PM. Is there any taxi or Uber around during the afternoon in Sandusky?
>>
Met a dude named blue that had a Kamina tattoo last year. Second time at Kalahari and they invited me out to the Villa on Fri night. Keep your ears close to the ground, how i found out about a hotel party which had a dude with slack backpack carrying around 30 joints dude was super chill

>To be desu, I'd just go with whatever you like normally. There'll be more than enough of those to go around at parties.
Eh, I'm not big on poaching other people's beer. Found a market in the area that looks promising.
>>
>>10749823
The whole time I was there, I only left Kalahari once, but I do know one thing: people in my group were worrying about Ubers and of them said "They'll definitely have a ton hanging around the convention center." They did not.

>>10750119
Is this your first Colossal? Cause if so, the event is a 4-day free for all of just hopping between random rooms and all are overstocked. In other words, they came in with the intention of handing out as much as possible.
>>
>>10750137
I would stay at the Kalahari the whole time too. Just need one ride from Greyhound to Kalahari on Wednesday afternoon and then another ride from Kalahari to Greyhound on Sunday morning/noon
>>
Bros they have the shuttle(s). They can't do this con without one. It stops right by Walmart. I wouldn't waste money on Ubers. They only run until 2am (at least last time I was there), so I did have to walk back after but it's just a mile
>>
God,I miss this con so much
>>
>>10750496
The fuck, you're still alive? I remember inviting you to a room party back when I started out on /cgl/ and then never hearing from you.
>>
>>10750181
You just jogged my memory. The transportation issue was bad last year cause a lot of people showed up there and realized the shuttle wasn't running.
>>
>>10750496
Why not come then
Would be great to see you again man
>>
I live near Cleveland and have never been to a con, this seems like my chance and from what some of you guys said I guess this is one of the best around. Should be epic. Does it matter what day/days I go on? Hopefully I can make a friend there and find out about some after-parties.
>>
>>10750779
Ideally Fri+Sat+Sun but you could do just two of those as well ie. Fri+Sat or Sat+Sun
>>
>>10750137
Nah, I've done Prime twice and East once. I always err on the side of bringing my own alcohol. Usually I trade. Nobody likes the weebs that come off as mooches.

A little over a month to go. I got my group together. Got my massage scheduled. Looking forward to a nice binge drinking break from the world. Bunch of 30 somethings now. We have been going since 2012. Which is crazy to think about.
Cosplay is going to be sylas from league of legends and possibly zabuza.

Nah it's so close after Momocon that I won't be able to recoup PTO. I'll probably make the general for Colossalcon Texas like I did last year sometime in like, June though.

Who /sands5thfloorbalcony/ here?
>>
>>10757458
Do they give you the option to choose early?

Just got home from Fan Expo Cleveland (formerly Wizard World). They put RFID chips in their badges, and now require you to sign in and out when entering or leaving the dealer's hall/artist's alley. Never seen a con do this shit to prevent ghosting, is this new or am I old? Fuck Colossal if they try to pull that shit.
>>
>>10757807
AX does it, at entrances into the LACC and into artist alley / panels
>>
>>10757807
Blizzcon and the DOTA International did it back when they were a thing. But they didn't really matter no one actually beeped their badges on the pillars, it was ignored
>>
>>10757810
Volunteers were scanning badges here.
>>
>>10757807
I dont see the point. I never buy anything at colossal. I just enjoy the venue for people watching. I pay for my week pass and then just enjoy friends.
>>
>>10749018
Wouldn't miss it for the world!

I'm in the best shape of my life. First time being single at Colossal. Our group has, like, 5 or 6 rooms which is overkill, but dammit we'll be comfortable.

I'm going to try this goofy cross-over cosplay of Cher Horowitz from Clueless & your garden-variety Hufflepuff that I've wanted to do for years. Outside of that, I've got Miu Iruma - taking it a little easier this year.

Time to get shredded & then get real weird with it!
>>
>>10758895
Want to meet up for some fuck and suck?

>>10757807
Based, I just went to fan expo cleveland it was my first con. Velvet dog afterparty was pretty lit. What do you mean by ghosting? What's wrong with what they're doing? It prevents people from entering if they didn't purchase a pass.

Did this once at Matsuricon. Shit was unbearable at the beginning of the day. Then I started drinking a bit &, and by the end of the night, I was blackout drunk with a ton of strangers, having the time of my life.

Tip: cosplay as something chaotic neutral/evil. I was the Joker & it helped a ton.

Thanks frens, I met some peeps at fan expo who will be at colossal con, even got invited to a party there by one of them so I'm hyped about making new friends. Just gotta get a cosplay ready now, is it lame to do the same cosplay the whole time? I don't know if I should just cosplay one character or a couple
>>
>>10758986
Sounds like fun, enjoy it friend! I'm taking two cosplays I've worn many years before so don't worry about rewears, get your mileage out of them.
Also if anyone wants European sweets or goodies, hmu

I would like european sweets and goodies pls and thx as long as they don't have your bodily fluids or other horrors in them

I believe in you friend. Don't just diet, make sure you do movement. If you are a fitizen then you probably have some type of routine, stick with it and add more arms if you can. No one gives a fuck about legs.
If not, do cardio or look into some type of body weight routine.
YOU GOT THIS BRO. Meet me at the convention center bar for a congratulation drink Thursday afternoon of you are legal. IF NOT idk. Ill still tell you I'm proud of you if you want.

I got 3 weeks to look reasonable again. Not doing it to pick up chicks, but to be better than 90 percent of the options there. LETS FUCKIN GOOOO.

Nothing but Keto & cardio until the con, babyyy

I've been doing body recomp for the past 3 months & my arms/back/legs have gotten way bigger. Time to cut it down a bit & live my best life out there.

Oh, & remember to make sure you drink a little too much the first night so you can get that nice emaciated look!
>>
Haven't been to a CC before. Any recommendations for those who didn't manage to get a room at the con and have to drive to CC?
>>
>>10763641
how fars the drive for you? be prepared to spent time looking for a parking spot. it gets full pretty fast but it also clears up a bit at night
>>
>>10763641
Bring money. Day waterpark passes are expensive af. Foods expensive. Honestly if we don't get a room at the con then we don't go. Been easier with this covid world though.
>>
>>10763651
Probably a 10 minute drive out.
>>
>>10749018
how colossal is colossalcon really? is it all that big? I'm from Texas btw
>>
>>10763662
Used to be fucking massive precovid. Parking overflow into all their grass. The villas were practically rave sites. The booze flowed like a flooded river.
The con center was so packed that you were shoulder to shoulder with cosplayers and normals alike.
It calmed down quite a bit last year, you had a good party batch from everyone that was cooped up and excited to be out in 2021. But overall the cosplay was good and the vibe was there. Older crowd too. Like lots of mid 20s. There were still available rooms the day of the con I believe so was not super packed.
>>
>>10763653
Can you buy waterpark passes in advance?
>>
>>10763727
Sure can. Go to the kalahari sandusky site and choose your dates.
>>
>>10763659
thats not too bad. ive never had a room at kalahari and i still have fun. usually drive from cle and stay until 3am or so
>>
>>10763738

That's when you finish pregaming, not leave

>>10763988

>>
>>10764056
Wow, that was pretty weird timing since I was already in this thread then hit refresh just now. ANYWAY, that wasn't even a joke, as I was in a room that started their party at 3 AM last year. And yes, you absolutely should aim for that, it's one of my top priorities.

We doing a meet up then?

Too soon to make any definitive plans on this front, but I can tell you I should be getting in with my guy no later than Wednesday night.
>>
>>10764057
How do you get into the villas?
>>
>>10764110
Considering that A) there were a ton of people inside B) it was a "low turnout" compared to other years C) they were giving wristbands at the door, it's probably as easy as just walking up...though having booze on hand doesn't hurt. The one I'm thinking of had a really lousy selection anyway.
>>
>>10764119
Based, will do then.
>>
>>10764098
I figured ill post something on Thursday. Assuming I actually want to hang with randoms that night.
>>
>>10763727
You can, but it's A LOT cheaper to buy them at the venue through Colossalcon. They offer discounted day passes for $60 during the con. If you buy a day pass online it will cost you around $130, IIRC.
I'm not sure if the discounted day passes sell out, though.
>>
I've always wanted to go to this, but it seems like a pain since I'm not local to any of them and none of them are close to an airport. Do you just have to rent a car and drive a few hours to the con?
>>
>>10764811
Yeah or have a friend drive you or something
>>
>>10764057

Friend and I are going to this this year, first con for both of us. Dude lost like 35lbs for this in a few weeks, and I've been trying to fit up a little as well considering the whole pool thing, though am already thin.

Make sure you get some cowprint shorts. It is apparently popular this year.
