We're one week away from ALA!
Have you finished your cosplay? Are your ribbons ready to be handed out?
almost done with my AJ Styles cosplay, just need to add the side patches on my legs and I'll be beating the gay community on saturday.
Working on pokemon cosplay atm. My husband is passing these ones out on Saturday.
>tfw you haven't even started on your cosplay
I'm ready for dead
As a first time goer, I'm not really a party person and i dont drink, despite being a legal age, and a lot of what I hear is that this is a party con. Is that really the only atmosphere, or is there another vibe going on?
It's pretty much a "party" con, in that there are of course many room parties going on, a lot of events that are less industry panels and more "fun fun fun", and there's a huge emphasis on socializing with randos rather than just waiting in slow lines. Even if you don't drink and party, there's the ribbon hunting, plenty of panels, gatherings, and gaming tournaments to attend. Though there's even more to do if you also drink and party.
I'm the same way, I don't drink much but I really want to hang with other gulls later into the night, I guess I'll just make sure nobody gets too crazy
To me however it's also just a regular con with just partying bugger a majority of it, you can still have lots of fun, it's a rather sorta small con, so you may end up bumping into others again repeatedly and make friends
Good. After the sheer volume of rain we've been getting, clear skies will be nice during the con.
I went to the outdoor swapmeet in Chino and a big part of the dirt lot looked like a pond.
I HAVE A HOTEL ROOM AT THE DOUBLETREE. LOOKING FOR ONE MORE PERSON.
Type of room: King room
Spot offered: floor or rollaway, i'll do what I can to help you
stay duration: Saturday, Sunday
price: 50/night. 100 for both
male or female is okay as long as you're clean, will shower, and won't steal shit.
also, if you're easily offended, this probably isn't the room for you.
If you're interested reply to this post or email me.
I will be so freaking glad when this chain of storms is done. We just got hit with more rain and hail a few minutes ago.
>I live 10 minutes from the con.
My ribbons finally came. Im finally 100% ready for ALA
I'm going to fucking town on all this goddamn weed.
Anyone guys and gals on here 420 friendly and wants to get mega wumbo blazed?
Me and my girlfriend live in Oakland, but we are out here and the rain has been boring and I've just been working on beats. I just bought a brand new hydro bong and I have some hybrid and some sativa buds. Were kinda down to hang out early as total normies.
Yeah! Sounds good guys.
Wait you produce beats? Same here, shit. I actually don't even mind DJing for an hour or 2 for shits and giggles. This rain has been kinda annoying.
Here's some junk I've been working with for a live set:
Where part of LA are you guys staying, I'm actually from out here and I was just gonna smoke with whatever party group was cool with it (since it's legal and all now) and sure we can use your bong if you'd like, I mean I have a volcano atomizer but gravity is classic!
All animu anons and femanons are welcome to match, or just come chill out and talk shit! The more the merrier, and hey no weirdos.
We don't not play that creep shit out here. Welcome to Los Angeles County.
Pic very much related.
W-wait! You seem pretty chill can I toke w u guys and gals too mah senpais~
I know I'm going to be so over day 1 of sweaty weeks talking pics w/ me I need to just c h i l l.
I got 2 grams of some fire, idunno.
No even fucking wants you here you edgefag.
Ass and tiddy thank you very much
Fucking autotext, whoops I srry
Talking= Taking pics*
I posted it in the coord help thread. But it's IW's anchor op. It'd be a really simple coord atm. If I wear it, it'd probably be either Friday or Sunday since I'm cosplaying on Saturday.
>con in 2 days
>just now deciding to make some modifications to the cosplay that's been done for 2 months
Just climb the fucking tower, Senpai!
[imaginaryspoiler]Ill probably be dancing or something ontop of some obscure staircase or escalator. Maybe the highest point of the convention center/Raddison[/imaginaryspoiler]
>tfw you had to reach into your ALA money stash to go to Anime Impulse a week ago
>tfw now you only have enough cash to just barely afford surviving ALA
I'll be the sad guy wandering the halls without any money to buy anything.
>Not setting up a blanket outside of the convention and cosplaying as some form of merchant and selling your excess ribbons for $0.50-$1.00
>Not bringing excess merch along with you and selling that for a little scratch as well
Your inner hebrew is in need of improvement
It's decent food at a decent price if you're just looking for an okay sit-down that isn't overpriced or too far from the con. It's right across the con to where the Holiday Inn is. It was a pretty decent choice to do last year for lunch a couple times.
I really hope to see some FFXV cosplays. I'm working on mine for Fanime but am looking forward to seeing some awesome ones here.
Indian place is amazeballs, can confirm, ate there like four times last year because I stayed at the Sheraton. Their stuff is a little spicier than the North Indian I'm used to but their mango lassi is gr8 and the older guy that seems to run the place was just tickled pink every time someone in a costume came in the doors.
I need to give it a try.
There's a bunch of places in an around the mills.There's a Kula's revolving sushi bar right around where the Sonic's is on the map.
I agree that Beanie's traveling band of cock sluts is tacky as shit, but...
Are you telling me you're gonna be the one to explain why a kid got a ribbon with a face from hentai on it to their parents? I think it's easier to just ban/limit the ribbon designs instead of letting people have free reign and ruin it for everybody.
This con is going to shit, a bunch of people on drugs/binge drinking and touting a bunch of inappropriate ribbons. Just stay at home if you're gonna do this shit.
I question the likelihood of some kid's parents letting the kid wander off by themselves and bumping into someone handing out hentai ribbons and being handed one by that person.
That kid is definitely going to see some skimpy cosplay and merchandise. Being physically handed a hentai ribbon? Much less likely I think.
Regardless, I think it's very trashy and should honestly be dealt with. Public intoxication, drugs, this kind of stuff all needs to not be in public eye. Do that shit in your own rooms and let people who are coming for the con enjoy it.
While I'd normally agree with this sentiment, you're going to wind up with a lot bigger issues than alcohol and ahego.jpg ribbons. There's the typical nearly-naked cosplayers abound, the general speed of the con and frequency of rapid movements, unrepentant and near-constant vulgarities, the fact that the con staff is spread very thin and are rarely helpful with basic shit, much less essentials, do we even have a proper medical staff on duty? This really isn't the kind of soft convention where young kids should be brought to in the first place, simply by merit of the con itself. When you factor in all the drinking and smoking as well, it becomes pretty...well, non-family.
I think every event that's not literally labeled 18+/21+ is "supposed" to be family friendly. That doesn't mean that any and all adult subject matter is banned from the premises, especially when your complaints are relatively harmless and primarily relegated to hotel room nonsense. At least there are no actual nude cosplayers or literal hentai ribbons.
>Pretty sure ala is supposed to be family friendly
You and I remember ALA very differently.
I'm on the hunt this year.
TO ask people who is gonna win the Royal Rumble, also since I'm gonna be AJ Styles I'm gonna play the gimmick where people know more about Cena than AJ and get pissed at them for that even though I know they don't know better.
Also Phenomenal forearm all Yuri on Ice cosplayers I see.
Take a lot of pics, make friends, get at least one ribbon and pass out some stickers!
Didn't the Radisson get trashed last year and people started getting into their underwear?
>that """fire""" at the doubletree last year
>it was just someones cellphone charger melting
Remember to ask for the $7 breakfast buffet voucher if you're staying at the Radisson If you want to eat breakfast there.
It's not much but it's just Day 0 you know
We're at Radison lobby now. Free ice cream is being distributed.
[spoiler]please come to my panels on Days 2 and 3[/spoiler]
Love Live weebs: find me. I'll be Mari and I'll have these to give out if you're brave.
Day 2 is the JoJo panel. Day 3 is a panel about Western music influencing Eastern media. Idk the rooms but the guide should say.
Now chilling in Comfort Hotel room 312. If anyone wants to join, but Day 0 is pretty much over for us
Sorry friends, I am rooting for the rain, we are still in a SEVERE drought! Very very very severe! I would sacrifice twelve cons before I wished for less rain. I really do hope you can figure something out though. I tarped up my whole bathroom to spray paint some shoes and props this past weekend. You could do that with some garbage bags and painters tape! You can also make a curing box for paint by taking a cardboard box big enough to encase your project, then cut a hole in the top and stick a hair dryer in, with a small vent at the bottom to prevent overheating.
But fuck me though.
I was reading in the bath while my boyfriend was falling asleep in bed, I set an admittedly large bottle of vodka on the side of the tub for a dumb pic, and not one minute later we get a call from the front desk. Apparently we have been "banging around" too loudly! The thing of it is, I know exactly what room called us in because I could hear them complaining about us so loudly I could hear their every word! ... not to mention the call was at about midnight and I can still hear parties going on around us. I was hoping to bring people back to my room for drinks later this weekend, but Idk anymore...
Constant rain is really bad though. You need to give the ground time to absorb the water or we're going to end up with landslides, especially since we've been in a severe drought and had a bunch of fires.
At least the mountains are looking nice. If people aren't digging the con, they could always drive to mount baldy.
Heads up to anyone staying at the Radisson. The elevator on the south side of the hotel, aka the opposite end of the front entrance, is out of order so if you're staying in one of the rooms on the south side then you're taking the stairs this weekend. Unless you wanna walk all the way around to the north side just to take the elevator, but stairs are much faster.
Besides, it's good exercise
Yo where is everyone at lmao I got drinks for days and no friends.
Day 0 was pretty chill. Fortunately we have friendies in all the nearby rooms.
Reeeeee pink shirt just took all the girls to his room.
He will not divide us
He will not divide us
He will nut inside us
He will not divide us
He will not divide us
>tfw pink shirt guy wasn't a meme
MESS WHERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE REAL REEEEEEEEEEEE
Pink shirt guy <3
Don't go to the karaoke. It's just a bunch of surges talking about politics. Where's the booze at?
Rasdison 2049. Stop being fag fuck we got a dj and shit too
Mfw clucking cock sounds from the dickbutt room in Azure
THAT FUCKING PINK SHIRT GUY IS IN THE KARAOKE
If there was a meet up, I missed it. Still carrying these around.
Pretty hype. Phoenix Wright won which was kinda bullshit. He was fun but all he did was shout "OBJECTION!". The Gyro/Johnny were way better at roasting.
Be sure to come to my JoJo panel (I believe 1:45 at RP1) and there will be another JoJo gathering right after
Same room as last night. We're all little girls here
Nothing processed yet.
I ordered and paid for the pizza But meanwhile in cuckville
Were mostly chill here really. We're not party hard but we're accepting people for nice time. Bring drinks though!
>Cops are coming
You feel like you're in control?
>tfw the crappiest Jaune at the con
>tfw still had so much fun that I was able to make a good joke of it
I didn't realize karaoke would be so long of a wait until I realized an hour had gone by
Anyone staffing? Maybe if there was an option to text someone when they were like 5 songs away from theirs...
Logistics could prove difficult though.
I'm here to let you back into you room darlings.
hes lying hes with us at the azure
Brzfag of /o/ and Foxbat of /k/ a normie.......
Yes, good cuck. Find your happy place.
Give Yoruichi cosplayer (bleach) a compliment
Wondering what she thought of the manga
make some small talk (not trying to flirt just genuinely interested)
Presumed bf some punk ass asian bitch walks up while we're chattin and says can you give us some space. Say I'm more than a foot away from her and we're just talking whats your deal
says it again
ask him what he is so sensitive about because he is obviously flustered
Call him a punk bitch to his face and ask him why he bothered coming to a con if he is just gonna stay in a clique and be a douche
I'm so glad im moving, fuck Cali people
Fuck cali cons.
>Doesn't want Normies
>But wants girls
Can't have one without the other.
But seriously it depends on what time you came. There were a lot of normies at one point but most of the time was literally seagulls talking about fetishes and spooky shit in a circle.
There were a few girls but sadly only one cute trap.
It doesn't say in the schedule bit there will be a Metal Gear gathering today at 2 PM at the North Courtyard Entrance. I'll be there as Otacon.
