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.
