Summary of KumoriCon 2009 by JailBreakDesigns Summary of KumoriCon 2009 by JailBreakDesigns
Okay. So..

KumoriCon 2009 @ the Hilton in Downtown Portland Oregon.

Yeaaah.. Don't get me wrong. If you google this con you will surely find a LOT LOT LOT of negative info. there were so very many problems with the location and everything.. BUT! I did have a lot of fun. I will go into detail in my DA Journal entry.. But yes.. this photo is my summary of the con. It is almost perfect. lol

The security there were the worst. I can not stress that enough.


You stand still because you are waiting for someone to catch up.

Security: "HEY! You can't stand here! you have to move!"

You: "Umm.. I am waiting for my friend."

Security: "HEY! Look, don't get mad at me I'm just doing my job! You have to MOVE!"

You: "Well. Where do I move to than?"

Security: "I don't know but you have to move now!"

You pause to look around and see that there is open space all around you.. So you move a few feet to the left.

Security walks off.

Kumoricon Staff: "Hey. You have to move. this is a fire exit path!"

You: "What the fuck, I'm standing by a couch!? Where do I move to?!"

Kumoricon Staff: "It doesn't matter, you just need to move!"


Sidenote: This photo was literally taken during one of those precise conversations.

I had a horrible time at Kumoricon 2009.

My friend that was going to go with me bailed at the last minute.

and then I couldnt get in on Friday because of the fire marshall thing, so I wandered around Portland until my hotel roommate people returned my call.

The rave was okay, but all I could do was stand there and feel disconnected from everyone around me.

pretty much the only people that talked to me the entire weekend was my roommates and one of the vendors that sold me a bear hat. I guess that's my fault for being so emo but still...

Lol, ya don't be so emo and talk to everyone. Better yet, if you dress up people will talk TO YOU, or you can just make fun of yourself and hope some people near by laugh and start a conversation. ^.^

Oh wow, I remember how stressful it was trying to reach the game room. I had a tourny to get to. My mom threw me through an area to get back down so i'd make it. She took the blame and sent me into line. It was pretty fun, I had nobody to talk to though.

Aha I remember walking past those girls. I only said like 2 really awkward things to them though. I liked their costumes a lot.

And yeah, I was the nurse again and they made me take off my face in the main lobby, which is where most everyone was. I was like "8C"

It sucked bawls
