This is the greatest To-Pack list I’ve ever seen. Happy packing and safe travels Katsucon goers!

tentacle:

i feel like this needs to be reiterated with the upcoming con season but really you should follow this advice all the time. if you are a huggy/touchy-feely person, PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THE FOLLOWING:

  • not everyone is crazy about hugs even if they’re wonderful
  • just because you see a person hugging someone else doesn’t mean they necessarily want a hug from you, especially if they don’t know you well or at all
  • some people do not feel comfortable hugging all the time, even if they have accepted/reciprocated a hug from you in the past. this might be due to location, anxiety, B.O., what they’re wearing, or about a million other things
  • hugging is not a right you have with someone even if you know them well, it is a privilege. you must respect their opinions and feelings no matter how much you like them and want to express that via hugging.
  • a simple "can i give you a hug?" can be very important, especially if someone is in cosplay. they may normally want to hug you, but are restricted by their costume’s fit or fragility. please be respectful of this to avoid breaking costumes that have been painstakingly put together!
  • PAY ATTENTION TO BODY LANGUAGE. if you go to give someone a hug, EVEN IF YOU HAVE VERBALLY ASKED FOR PERMISSION BUT ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE NOT, pay attention to the signals they give you. if someone turns to the side, leaves their arms at their sides, tenses up, or generally looks uncomfortable, you should not complete the hug. someone may agree (or at least not outright disagree) if you ask them because they feel uncomfortable saying no. body language is the ultimate indicator. please always pay close attention to body language.

Katsucon is coming, that means it’s time for some PSAs!

How to not be a dick at the Katsucon Gazebo

adiostoreadumb:

Katsucon is a mere few days away and already I’m seeing drama start to emerge. The Katsucon gazebo is a really great photo location that is highly sought after by cosplayers and photographers alike every year. It is also the easiest place to find petty arguments and drama. Here’s how to not be an asshole at the gazebo.

- Make sure you have a badge. Starting this year, con staff with be badge checking for entrance to the gazebo area. Don’t be that person who tries to get in without a badge. You’re making con staff’s job harder and they aren’t the bad guys.

- Don’t hold a big group meet up in front of the gazebo. I see this happen every year and it’s so fucking rude. Don’t jam your meet photoshoot into the gazebo for hours. Just don’t do it. Everyone will hate your guts and con staff will make you move anyway. Save yourself the trouble.

- Don’t believe any photographer who says they “reserved” the gazebo. You can’t fucking reserve the gazebo. This is common with “big name” photographers who feel the need to set up huge lights in front of the gazebo, or worse, stand in it to call dibs on it while they wait for their shoot to arrive. That’s the biggest dick move. If you see someone doing this and they refuse to move, go get a staffer. Don’t start a screaming match.

- More than one shoot can happen in the gazebo at once. Only using a one side of the gazebo for a shot? Let someone else use the other side at the same time.

- Respect the first come first serve rule. Everyone is waiting for pictures in the gazebo. If there is a group currently in there, wait patiently until they are done. You’ll notice that there’s always some sort of line going on near the gazebo. Wait your turn and let the people who got there before you go before you. Be polite.

- Last but not least, don’t play the “photobomb the gazebo shoot” game. This happens to me at least once a day at Katsucon. There’s always some asshole who thinks it’s HILARIOUS to photobomb from behind the gazebo. Guess what pal, it’s NOT. It make the photographers job a whole lot harder and editing people out of photos is fucking annoying. Don’t do it.

Katsucon is coming and as the Human Representative for the Katsucon Gazebo I feel it is my duty to spread the PSA.

Happy Friday überlings!

I wanted to write out a brief post to explain my lack of videos last Friday and today (yes, that means there’s no video for today).

I’m in a bit of a big transition in my life: Moving out of 2013 and into 2014, trying to make some changes so that I’m living my life as fully as I want to be, and most of all trying to get into a comfortable routine of video making. 

The last couple of weeks have been over the holiday, which is a wildly chaotic time for most people, myself included. I’ve had family obligations, as well as numerous visits from friends. It’s a wonderful time of year, but it does make me sad that I wound up with no time and no motivation to make time to film videos.

As you may have gathered from my barrage of motivational tweets I’ve also been trying to orient myself in the direction that I want to take with life and it’s been challenging. Life can be hard sometimes and it’s taken a lot of my energy to keep pushing forward. I’ve stumbled here and there, but I think I’m finally making some progress.

What all of this really leads up to is a renewed effort to get my content out to you every week. I’ve got a couple of ideas to get me started, and as always I love your input so if you have ideas feel free to send them to me!

Again, I’m sorry there won’t be a video from me this week. I will be making my best effort to get back into the swing of things next week.

Until then überlings, I’ll talk to you later.

xoxo
