LITTLE OVER 2 MONTHS AWAY

are you going? are you cosplaying? what are you hoping for? what do you want to see?

Not going unless they change their vaxx requirement. Sad, haven't missed it in over a decade.
I really hope they see this and reconsider.
>>
>>10762064
samefagging but need to clarify. not saying that they should change their minds because of me specifically, but overall the feedback from the community that it's a bad idea and not just dismiss it out of hand as "reactionary MAGAtards".
>>
>>10762064
>>10762066
they said that they might reconsider the requirements when its closer to the con back in like march or early april i think
>>
>>10762225
It's getting close enough to the con where ppl need to start making arrangements. I really think they're not going to budge.
>>
>>10764003
tekko also loves to do things very absolutely possible last second unfortunately like the schedules/guests

>>10764906
Thanks anon.
>the responses
Implying that anyone aside from the 85 year olds and 450-lbers actually care about COVID anymore. I haven't seen anyone with a mask in the past few months. Why are they always lying?
>>
>>10762044
what is going on with the fashion guests?? model apps close may 31st but no guests have been announced?
>>
The vaxx and mask bullshit is gay as fuck. I live here and I hope tekko just dies and gets replaced by some con with better management like colossal which didn't have these dumb requirements last year (at least east) and that was a great time. If you're afraid of covid you shouldn't be in an enclosed space with a bunch of other people for 3 days. The tekko management is clearly just wants to flex how they're in charge and own da antivaxxers. If everyone is vaxxed why wear masks? I got jabbed but I still think this is absolutely retarded and I'm not downloading an app or showing sweaty weebs my vax card.

Yes, I am seething. 2 years of this bullshit is enough.
>>
>>10766727
i'm OP and i live here too, i totally get you. we literally don't have to really wear masks anywhere anymore (aside from doctor's iirc). i didn't go in december but i don't know if i wanna think about all that waiting around verifying badges AND vax cards in july but god damn i still wanna go.
>The tekko management is clearly just wants to flex how they're in charge and own da antivaxxers.
it's so ironic because their management is horrible. can't wait to not get the schedule till like a couple days before the con
>>
>>10766727
Facts, the only places I've seen that still require it in this state are hospitals/doctors and air travel. Even in the ultraliberal NYC I was not asked once for a vaxx passport because even they seemingly understand it's retarded.
If you are worried about your health STILL after 2 years, then don't go anywhere, and also take steps to reduce risk factors like losing weight, exercising, and eating a balanced diet... oh what's that the majority of people gained weight during the pandemic and continue to gain? So I guess they weren't really that concerned about their health considering obesity and obesity-related illnesses are the #1 risk factor aside from old age.
>>
The fashion brands they chose this year are rather disappointing. I highly doubt they secured Mana as a guest.
>>
>>10765990
Its been like that almost every year. Tekko tried to make the covid excuse for 2021 but the same thing happened before covid. Someone on their staff needs to get their shit together.
>>
Tekko needs new management or it will die
>>
Anyone want to buy a rockstar badge? Tekko doesn't offer refunds apparently, but I can transfer the badge to your name?
>>
>>10770624
I can only hope (they die)
>>
>>10770641
Just ask your credit card company to dispute the charge
>>
>>10770711
I can try but I'm not sure if they will? I purchased the badge 2 years ago. This was the last year Tekko was allowing roll overs.
>>
>>10768101
It's the angry red head. She's a shitty mod and a shitty head of Tekko fashion. She bent over backwards to keep Naturally Racist in the comm. No idea what stupid shit she does at Tekko.
>>
Can we talk how shit the jfashion brand line up is? its laughable
>>
TEKKO MIGHT BE DEAD UNLESS THEY RAISE MONEY
CURRENTLY RUNNING A GFM THAT NEEDS $100K
TEKKO MIGHT DIE
>>
>>10773158
Technically they need 60k to keep the con alive.
>>
>>10773158
Topkek they deserve it for the faggy vaxx and mask mandates
>>
>Starts a gofundme for a cool $100K a month and a half before the convention
>BTW guys, we need $60K before the convention or it will be cancelled.

RIP Tekko.
>>
>>10773269
it’s almost at $7k right now, but they kinda did this to themselves. i knew something was up when it’s almost a month to and there’s been no sign of a schedule.
>>
>>10773281
>it’s almost at $7k right now
A whopping 7 percent of their $100K goal! Kek.
And of course bear in mind that the biggest chunk of funds for these things generally comes in the beginning.
Otakon, which has over twice the attendance as Tekko, got $34K when they begged for money in similar fashion.
I take no joy in seeing any convention go away, but I don't see how they could raise anywhere near as much money as they say the need.
>>
>>10773331
i dunno, they've gotten like 13k in not even 24 hours, who knows.
to be fair, it's 60k to even have the con, 100k for padding and a boost for next year i assume.
they're going to have a campaign that's one final push for funds in early july and supposedly the 9th is when it ends.
>>
>>10773376
I guess nothing is impossible, but I just don't see them hitting their goal.
Question is, what happens if they have that virtual begathon or whatever in early July, and they don't hit the $60K goal by the end of that?
Do they immediately cancel the con, which is scheduled to be held just 2 weeks after that event? And if they cancel, what happens to all the money that they did raise?
>>
>>10773382
yeah we have the exact same questions. this absolute lack of management is horrendous and pulling this stunt barely a month before a con, and saying that if they don’t get these funds in a few weeks it’s dead. this is a really bad look.
almost $17k now apparently
>>
>>10773269
Aww man, I was finally hoping I'd have a chance to go to my first con, even if it is a 5 hour drive from my place and supposedly just average quality...
>>
At least they're not announcing a fundraiser during the first night of the Con. Looking at you Dashcon.

The Con had trouble in the past with not having an official hotel. Having to postpone the Con in 2021 was not a bright idea.
>>
>>10773522
20k
>>
>>10773331
I'd be more likely to donate if different people were running the events. Everything has gone down hill since 2016
>>
I refuse to donate to my home con wgen they still require vaccination and masking because weebs are antisocial retards.

I also think asking for 60k as the minimum is very shady considering it's the exact amount of the CEOs salary. So what, I'm donating to pay Pete under the guise of saving the con? No thanks.
>>
>>10773911
this is my home con too and i wanna go so bad, i have friends coming from all sorts of different states and even though this con isn't the best it's gonna suck hard if we can't go
>because weebs are antisocial retards.
sucks when you wanna ensure the safety of people but can't make everyone happy, i don't like that either. they did confirm they are going to have MASK0-FREE areas though thank god
>>
nearing halfway to ensure the con even runs, 27k at the moment
>>
>>10773911
This isn't my home con but I'm not going to another damn con with masks, I got heat exhaustion from the last one. Fully vaccinated and either we do this right or not at all. I'm tired of half ass cons trying to make money while cutting programming
>>
>>10774209
they reached 31k, halfway to their necessary 60k
>>10774221
unsure why everyone keeps glossing over that there’s going to be plenty of mask free areas. if i had to guess they’re probably gonna do masks during panels/events where people are going to be in close proximity
>>
We don't need updates every time someone donates a nickel, but holy shit am I surprised that they're at 32K already.
That's nearly as much as Otakon claimed to have received in donations, and Tekko is a much smaller convention.
>>
>>10774406
the updates help keep the thread alive
>>
what even happens if they get to $60000 or $100000? the con was at least $300000 in the red already, before spending a cent, right? or was it more than that? unless dlcc is so desparate that they gave the venue for free, they would have to get what, 15000 attendees just to get back to zero when the year was done.

get their money or not, how can they even survive after this year?
>>
>>10774887
>the con was at least $300000 in the red already, before spending a cent, right?
was it really?
yeah, 60k is to even hold the convention, they made need to keep doing this for a few years or just bite the bullet and sell the 2020 merch that put them in that bad spot in the first place
>>
the problem started before the 2020 merch, unfortunately. pittjcs was in better than average financial shape, as cons go, back in say 2016, but 2019 was a huge disaster. people remember it as their biggest crowd ever, but if you look at the form 990, expenses were almost double what they were in say 2016. they lost about 140,000.

they don't seem to have their 990 up for 2020 or 2021, but on their website about the gofundme, they say they received $250k and the con still cost half a million to run. as vague as that is, I dont see any way that doesnt add up to at least $300000 in debt and probably much more, and that is even before any of the 2020 merch is factored in.
>>
Almost at 40k now, plus there's a car wash fundraiser as well. Quite a few people are also opening commission slots and donating proceeds to the fundraiser.
>>
TEKKO IS HAPPENING, if you're not in the loop a local Pittsburgh vidya developer is matching every donation done past 40k. If you donate 10, they will as well.
As it stands, it reached 50k which because of Schell Games, will reach the 60k.
TEKKO
IS
HAPPENING
>>
>>10775046
Honestly they should just call it doneafter this year. Leave with some dignity
>>
56K as of right now. The 60K goal is a given, and they may very well hit the 100K goal.
I wonder how many other con organizers are going to take notice of Tekko's success here and have begathons of their own.
They should all watch some Darksydephil videos as training.
>>
another possibility, if they don't make enough money this year, is that pittjcs might fold, but sell the tekko name to someone else who would keep running the con. yinzers do love their con, judging by the response to the gofundme.
>>
This is pathetic, I already decided not to go because I went to a couple other cons this year but the begging makes me think tekko won't be worth going to. How do you mismanage funds that badly
>>
>>10773936
Does that mean they are going to have food.. ?
>>
>>10777984
they usually always do yes.
>>
A LITTLE OVER 3 THREEKS LEFT
>>
So suddenly their fashion tab doesn't list featured designers? Before they were all listed, including brands like Atelier Pierrot, which I now realize may have just been their lineup from last year (since I recognized the brands from their December event), I wonder if they'll even have any this time, it feels like they would've announced at least one, though they are still announcing regionals
>>
>>10782880
all of their announcements have been on twitter, unfortunately they take forever to update their guests and site in general but it seems like they've been getting more and more fash brands within the past week.
>>
>>10782884
Oh, yeah, I've been keeping an eye on the announcements, it's just interesting that they have no non-regional brands announced yet, like their usual big-name lolita brand guest
>>
>>10782880
I know who the big Japanese designer is and it's good. I'm guessing the brand is struggling getting the wording of their contract right because the angry redhead sucks at people. Every year the contract goes back and forth, back and forth, and that's why you have to wait forever for the big brand announcement.
>>
>>10783392
why can't you say who it is? is it a huge brand at the very least?
>>
>>10783505
If I want to keep getting told secrets I can't run around sharing them all the time. And yes, it's a big brand, one they've had before.
>>
>>10783557
>one they've had before.
oh so it's not Moitie, damn
>>
>>10783557
Could you at least say the style, so I know if I should care or not? ( Hoping for something gothic/classic if it's lolita, not sweet. )
>>10783575
That's what I was hoping for, since their chance of having MmM was ruined by covid. rip.
>>
>>10784025
second anon YRT, sweet is so ridiculously popular in the west, more likely than not it's going to be sweet to make the $$$. the vast majority just won't care enough because they're not gothics, unless Mana himself was coming.
>>
>>10784025
Your fears are well founded, as yes, it's a brand known for sweet.
>>
>>10784205
I appreciate the info, anon. Now I can better plan my con budget. It's really frustrating that the con is in two weeks and there hasn't been an official announcement yet.
>>
>>10784219
The head of the j-fashion department is just unpleasant to work with, her husband is the type of creep to only hug the pretty girls and she lugs him around like a pacifier. I imagine they have trouble keeping staff, plus Covid. I'm sad I missed AtePie, because gothic is good. Maybe one year we'll get Moite.
>>
anyone else just not feelin it this year? i planned on just reusing a cosplay from 2021, but might try to throw another together
>>
>>10784658
Why even go, this con sounds terrible. Save money and go to a small local con instead.
>>
>>10785119
i mean if you live here this IS our local con, unless you go to Steel City con
>>
>>10785119
what >>10785121 said, plus steel city con is even worse imo.
I work downtown so its right there for me
>>
>>10785538
hi from brentwood
i went to steel city con last year and it was GARBAGE, it was stupidly hot and the venue is so small and everyone was packed like literal sardines in the AA, literally no one could breathe and it just felt like one never ending line of shuffling two feet then having to stop over and over
also sucks if you're not into western nerd media like i'm not, so there wasn't too much anime/video game other than that One Booth that has really overpriced plushies/figures/scrolls
>>
>>10784229
Is there going to be a good amount of other, non-lolita brands? I've always enjoyed when they've had listen flavor, hypercore, etc
>>
>>10785749
yes, there's general j-fashion brands coming, iirc there's a menhera one coming as example

>>
>>10785541
isnt brentwood just a road, but agreed. too much western old toys that no one wants and the actors charge too much for everything to care about.
>>
>>10785827
Gotta admit, I never thought they'd hit the 100K goal when this started. Hell, even the 60K goal was questionable IMO. 100K is a huge amount for a con that gets just over 10K attendees.
I'm sure there are other con organizers salivating at the thought of having their own begathon after seeing this.
>>
>>10785850
no we’re a borough right by carrick and south park baldwin
>>
>>10785749
I'm not sure who the big non-lolita brands are, but I'm pretty sure the person that tends to represent them is still there. So yeah, I imagine there will be something.
>>
ON THURDAY WILL MARK 1 WEEK UNTIL THE CON
SCHEDULE SHOULD RELEASE THEN AS WELL
DID YOU BUY YOUR TICKET? PLAN YOUR ARRANGEMENTS? GET YOUR FRIENDS TOGETHER?
>>
>>10786901
>1 week away
I just want to hear back about my model application...
>>
Schedule is technically out, they're having issues, should be up within the next few hours or so
>>
hell ya, all 6 of us are ready
>>
>>10785827
Who in the fuck donates to this trash con? Should have let it die out and let a better con with better management take over.
>>
First time attendee here. What should I expect?
>>
>>10787257
arcade room is fun, most panels are kinda wack, i normally spend a lot of time cosplay watching to kill time
>>
>>10787137
I think they need models so unless you're Naturally Racist levels of social dysfunction, they might just be waiting to announce the brand.
>>
>>10787344
I had figured as much.
I hope they announce brands soon, it's now officially a week away and the closest they have, aside from the regional designers, is announcing RinRinDoll, though it feels like through having her, they pretty much conifrmed the big brand is AP, or maybe I'm just tinfoiling
>>
>>10787257
Lots of kids, extremely bad political social justice panels, mediocre cosplay for the 10-20% that cosplays at this con and also no good drinking or parties.
>>
>>10787467
This one year I went to Tekko and had to take a dump, all the male stalls were dumped with propaganda shaming me for being a male because “cosplay is consent” and “men never get sexually harassed at cons.” Should I be remotely surprised that an out of touch con from Pittsburg has tumblr panels? They don’t even utilize the entire convention center properly.
>>
>>10787473
I've been there and it says nothing like that, it just says that you can contact security if you feel uncomfortable, there's nothing about men not getting harassed.
>>
>>10787495
people love to hate this damn con, can't figure why honestly but these are the same people that act like anime expo isn't also horrifically organized like, let us have our con lol
>>10787257
the panels aren't that great, especially this years, it's full of weirdo shit like "Pokemon smash or pass 18+" and MHA Sleepover 18+ and thousands of how to be a streamer stuff
artist alley/vendors and arcade along with the game competitions are really good and fun
if you're here JUST to party it aint happening, move along
>>
>>10787467
man i want to find a party this year, but tekko just doesnt have that type of crowd
>>
>>10787593
Sounds more like you don't know where to look, maybe you're the problem kek
>>
>>10787509
It's shit. You're coping hard. 18+ panels are at every con. The arcade is trash compared to even smaller cons. It took years to even get initial d.
>>10787797
>t. has never been to an actual party con
>>
>>10787843
yeah i'm not saying 18+ panels are weird in themselves, just this year has weirdo shit in particular
>>
>>10787509
>people love to hate this damn con

Because it’s pretty fucking mid to low tier. If it makes you feel any better, Ohayo and Matsuri in Ohio are garbage enough where people purposely travel to the south for cons nowadays
>>
>>10787843
>The arcade is trash compared to even smaller cons.

Gonna need some examples of smaller cons with noticeably better game rooms
>>
>>10787843
>>t. has never been to an actual party con

Like what, Colossal? If you want a frat party go to a frat party lel. "Party cons" are shit, the actual good parties happen through knowing the right people.
>>
>>10787965
im convinced that people that go to cons only for parties don't actually like conventions
>>
Looks like Haenuli is the big JP guest, according to the official tekko j-fashion group.
RIP Moitie and Mana-sama; maybe next year;
>>
>>10788586
>>10784205
??????
>>
>>10788586
Huh?
I figured it'd be AP since Rinrindoll is going to be there.
>>
>>10788586
>27" max waist, 34" max bust
I wonder how that'll affect models. I noticed last year there was a large chunk of plus size models.
>>
>>10788626
and haenuli isnt even JP??
>>
>>10788626
I thought so too, unless Tekko hasn't announced AP yet. So far they've only announced Haenuli. >>10788627

Pretty much. Aren't they still looking for models as it is? I've heard that some models are waiting to hear back yet.
>>
>>10789036
I don't think any models have been accepted, which makes sense since it seems like they're still announcing brands, unless Haenuli was the last.
>>
>>10789071
Quite possibly. I know Puvi will be there.
>>
>>
>>10787965
Colossal can't even be compared to tekko because of how much better colossal is. More cosplayers, more drinking, waterpark, more fun, less nazi-esque rules
>>
Any fashion show updates?
>>
>>10787593
idk bro im going to tekko with 19 people and we got a house so maybe you just need friends?
>>
I saw that Haenuli and RinRin Doll will be the guests for the tea party. Did the big JP brand guest fall through?
>>
>>10789718
It's weird to me that there's no jp brands at all desu, aside from RinRin bringing some stuff

Last con I was planning on going with a bunch of friends but ended up being unable to get the ticket for the same day as them and just went with my cousin. It was still worth it imo since I found someone cosplaying from the same series and had ppl recognise the cosplay and come talk to me. Id say if you like cosplaying and cons in general you will still be able to enjoy it by yourself.
