Geek Proud, GeekOut.

Live from Kitacon – Joel, Day 2

I am writing this on my phone because I can’t be bothered to arrange anything easier. We have to pay for WiFi and I’m having none of it.

Day 2 has been awesome! The Q&A was a little tame because two of our guests arrive tomorrow, and as is always the way the voice actor Ashly Burch soaked up much of the questions, leaving the cosplay expert Naraku Brock to seize every opportunity to discuss her process and experiences. Still, they both entertained brilliantly and thanks to both of them for a really friendly chat.

The dealer room is as good (if not better) than last year. The centre aisle is filled with artists, and other stuff like DVDs, Manga, models, games, shirts ~breathe~ replicas, gear and whatnot have got decent spreads. Nothing is really dominating space as I’ve seen in the past, and I spent all my money!

Just… All the money…

Games, people, panels, Let’s Play of Borderlands, you guys are awesome, I have met so many new people, seen so many friendly faces, I feel like I never left.

Dissapointments: I cannot find anywhere quiet to run a role-play and record it! Tomorrow is looking too busy for me to squeeze it in and I already (foolishly) got people interested. To those of you who have heard about “The Plan”, my apologies, if I can’t do it tomorrow, ALcon is only a few weeks away.

Some bad news however. Last night the number of drink related emergency calls were excessive to say the least, and that was only the first party of a long weekend of parties. Please, keep the Con going, don’t jeopardise everyone else’s party by killing yourself! It’s 9:00 and already an ambulance has arrived.

Last thing before I go down to Rock Around the Clock and yell myself hoarse, if you’re here, come talk to us, we love you guys, this Con is awesome, and everyone have an epic last day.

  2. Typing on a phone is not fun, but I can understand that Wi-Fi money is better spent on DVDs and Manga.

    Perhaps you can have your role play session at the hotel?

    • The role play will have to wait I think until ALcon in a months time. The Hilton is an expensive place but it’s worth it, and it does help curb spending on merchandise
