Do Yojimbo have to wear special uniforms, or do they get to wear costumes like everyone else? If so how do you tell them apart from everyone else?

the last few years we have worn either a red haiori or a red sash tho this year we definitely did not have enough. not sure about next year as of yet but while on duty we do often wear something that can be easily recognized in a crowd.

Hmm okay.
One more question...
What exactly does a Yojimbo do, and what are the benefits of becoming one?

(yeah I sound like a newbie I know)

Though there is a small chance something could pop up in the future and I would have to back out, but unless that happens (I would let someone know) consider me available to help out.

kylite - we should all talk at one of the upcoming meetings about your shortage of yoji uniforms.  I had no idea we didn't have enough, and I think it'd be fun to get a group together to have a little sewing party and make some more.  I think the red haori is important, since it's become somewhat iconic at k-con.  Most returning people know that when they need security, they should look for the red jacket!  :)

We can also attempt to collect red fabric donations at upcoming meetings, too.  I'm sure plenty of cosplayers have leftovers that they'd be willing to share.  :)

I'll look for you at the first or second meeting and we can talk about this.

I don't remember any tags, but were the haories linen per chance?  That's what some of them felt like to me.

While the red haori's are cool, perhaps they may be... fiscally ineffective for ALL the yojimbo?

Perhaps they should be worn by Yojimbo-Team/Platoon Leaders? Then there underlings can wear
a red headband/Arm Band with a specific symbol/character/number on it designating them to that
Yojimbo leader. That was the red Band and Haori are universal, and the leaders of the Yojimbo are
distinct from the grunts/teams. Making Red Bands seems alot easier/cheaper then a bunch of Haori's.

But thats my 2 cents.

*nods* it comes down to cost of materials, person to make said materials into the proper things, AND making sure what we wear is identifiable throughout the crowd without having to look too hard.

the red bands while nice are hard to spot and everyone wore them differently

the jackets are large and red and stand out, the only people we look like in the land of cosplay is inuyasha lol

still I am up for suggestions, donations, whatever works LOL

I've got a cosplay outfit I'm trying to finish, sad i couldn't get it done for this con, and after that I could see about making a single haori and multiply the materials/cost to make the amount needed for everyone working at one time to wear.  The haori itself takes VARY LITTLE skill in sewing to make (single stitch ftw), and we could have a little get together to make them, but its not necessary.  The cost for the fabric is probably somewhere around 7.50$ a yard.  Each yard is about 54" x 36".  I don't know exactly how much fabric they take, but I'm sure you can make 1 per yard if not 3 per 2 yards.  Donations and cheaper/deals on fabric are all possibilities.  Anyhow I still have to finish my cosplay and I'm not in a super hurry so not sure when I'll be looking into the haori.

well I cosplay as Kenshin, he also wears red (though a darker red than the Haori) but still.

EDIT: Can yojimbo wear the Haori over a cosplay? or do they need to wear normal clothes under it?

Mmm.. I was told we could cosplay, and we had others cosplaying there (not sure if they were all yoji or just other staff)  but I don't believe you need to wear anything over your outfit.  That would, after all, ruin the whole point of cosplaying :)
But no props are allowed on duty.

In that case, is there a safe place that yoji can leave their cosplay props/personal belongings while on duty? (say if they can't afford a hotel room) Cause I for one have a sword with my cosplay... and if it were to be stolen I would be royally pissed.

Also I want to clear up a rumor I heard. Yoji, as staff members, get into kumoricon for $10. is this true?

Well, first there is a background check... and the current Yojimbo have to follow
you around for a month to decide if your heart is pure and your mind is free and
clear of all fear.

You will then be kidnapped at a random hour of the night and whisked away to
the "trials" where you will be grilled on your anime knowledge, your skills in the
martial arts and your ability to solve puzzles and riddles in a quick manner.

If you pass this test you will go before the great Yojimbo 1 and lay your life and
bokken at his feet. If you please him you are granted the title of Yojimbo...
if not...

Well, lets just hope you are!

(All joking of course, I think we just have to go to the meeting once they approve us
and start learning how to do what yojimbo do!)

We are now kind of a lame duck board.  We can't sign people up for next year.  We need to wait until after elections so we know who will be running Ops.  Elections will be mid-October.

Right now lots of people are enthusiastic, but we can't do much until elections.  Gomen.  Whoever is appointed as Yoji 1 should be contacting people as soon as he is in place.

Just attend a general meeting, meet up with the director of operations and one of the Yojimbo leaders.

I myself have been requested to sign up as Yojimbo 1 by many people so I will try for it. Wether I get that position or not is up to the new operations director

Regardless I am working on the new roster for 2010 if I can stop flaling asleep after work. (convention  jet lag) LOL

I will tell ya now, we rarely EVER turn anyone away from being yoji unless you were in years past and simply didnt perform ur duties and such.

Just show up at a general meeting, I will be at every one of them if I can, and we will get u set up and trained. :)

We do really appriciate people attending the earlier meetings and, if possible, more than one.  The more Yoji we have who are more well trained, the better off the whole con is.

One of the first tasks of the new Board will be to set all the meeting times.  Once they are set, they will be put into the calender on the front page of the website.

The meetings are always on Saturday or Sunday (at least from the past four years I have been staffing) and you'll know by watching the website for the announcement about them. Hopefully we'll have it a lot like we did last year so the dates are set in advance so it is easier for people to get time off.

Also to answer a previous question: yes yoji can leave stuff in the yoji office (I do all the time) while they are on duty.

And to reanswer another question: yoji do have to wear either the sash or haori while on duty as well, whether cosplaying or not.

Thats part of the things to be decided when they set the meetings but I would assume it would be the same as last year, in the hotel itself.

Not all meetings are in the hotel due to the higher cost of using that space. Most meetings are somewhere in Portland. We also try to have one in Eugene, a couple in Salem, and maybe some in Vancouver, WA.

The haoris are all cotton, but some of them are better quality cotton than others.  I say hold off on any of this until the new Operations Director takes office, then we can request a budget for materials to make more.  We do indeed need more though.

Well, first there is a background check... and the current Yojimbo have to follow
you around for a month to decide if your heart is pure and your mind is free and
clear of all fear.

You will then be kidnapped at a random hour of the night and whisked away to
the "trials" where you will be grilled on your anime knowledge, your skills in the
martial arts and your ability to solve puzzles and riddles in a quick manner.

If you pass this test you will go before the great Yojimbo 1 and lay your life and
bokken at his feet. If you please him you are granted the title of Yojimbo...
if not...

Well, lets just hope you are!

~Allykat
That actually sounds like a fun way to meet the new yoji's, maybe we should do something.......

And to reanswer another question: yoji do have to wear either the sash or haori while on duty as well, whether cosplaying or not.
Well at least a sash is easily incorporated into most costumes, not totally ruining it.  Though in cosplay I doubt anyone would realize you are staff at first.

Thats why the Red Band would need to have some kind of symbol/word/number on it

To discern it from regular ones or generic samurai ones....

Not to mention most of the Yojimbo were carrying flashlights and tools or clipboards
along with their haori/sash

I'm not an official source on this one but I think there is nothing against doing it as long as it does not stop you from doing your duties (like a gigantic prop or soemthing) as I saw Kylite as Walter from Hellsing a few years ago, and I think I saw a Black Mage in 2008

I was Human Inuyasha this year (nobody uploaded pics of me T_T) and I was mistaken as a yoji a few times.   If I were to get the Yoji symbol on it (like the regular jackets), could I use that?->if my gf doesn't kill me
Wouldn't need to make a new one for me. I am thinking about redoing the top so I can have pockets anyway :)

I'm not a yojimbo, yet, so I don't know but... I imagine the point is your hands need to be free at all times,
also I doubt while on duty you should be doing many photo ops so almost all, if any, props should be not
allowed because they will hinder you from running after or making sure people are safe. Anything besides
neccessary tools of the trade are probably going to be more of a burden then a help.

No carrying props while on duty. When not on duty, the only thing you have to worry about in regards to that is the con prop policy.

I doubt anyone would make you put the festival symbol on it.  They might ask you to wear a sash, which you can tie anywhere, (I wrapped one around my hand :/ ) or not bother wear one at all.  Big red outfit with a well visible staff badge is pretty good.

Although it's not neccessarily a good "title" I like the basic idea of what yojimbo actually
stands for; "Hand for Hire" or "Task Force"

Yeah... Task Force sounds really cool... we are THE Task Force... lol!

It might be a good idea to change the name of the thread back... it gets abbreviated in the main window as "Yojimbo (Quality @55."

While that may be true, it's probably not a great idea to advertise it that way. (^_~)

Yes we're allowed to cosplay, but no prop weapons; face masks; or face paint obscuring your entire face while on duty.  I had my Princess Daisy cosplay on this year.

Alright, I've already tentatively signed up, but I guess... I'm looking for a little advice/reassurance? I'm planning on purchasing a table in the Artists' Alley, but I figure it'll take two people to man it anyway and it only comes with one guest pass. Hence, volunteering - partially for the discounted admission, admittedly, but also because I want to get involved.

So, I'm wondering if anyone else has tried something similar before? Will I probably end up spending the entire con either on duty as a yoji or manning the art table? Or is it possible to squeeze some playtime in there, too?

If you have your own table in AA then you will be there most the time.  If you were just helping someone with a table in AA using a get in kcon free card you will still probably be helping to man your table and help with sales most the time.  If you were just going as yoji, depending on how dedicated you are, you will still get to see some stuff.  Though you might also get to walk around and talk to people while your working, roaming ftw.  Just make sure your not a total social butterfly and you are doing the job you signed up to do WHILE ON DUTY.  I don't actually remember seeing roaming yoji (though I saw some stationary) down in dealers hall, so if you think you could just watch over AA, that might not be doable depending on how the new operations director wants things to go next year.  Did that answer your question?

Okay, so it really sounds like you can only do yoji or AA. Which is fine with me, I'll just have to uh. Cancel my sign-up... ness.

But you also mentioned something that sounded as though you can actually get two people in if you buy a table. Like, the person who signs up for it gets in, and then the pass that comes with it is for an extra second person. If that's true, then it's a load off my mind because I've got another person who wants to help me but might not be able to make it, and this way I won't have to depend on her coming.

So, quick question. Is this a volunteer position, or an actual job? If so, I'm curious as to how much the salary is. Sorry, I love the k-con, and would love to be part of the inner-workings, bu I would need to know how worth it it is.

Every Kumoricon staff position is volunteer (yes, even the directors).

But if you don't treat it like a job (although fun one, mostly..) you might think twice.  Its a serious event with real people counting on us un-payed volunteers to keep them happy or face doom >.<"

Thats correct; the volunteer-staff get many perks such as:

Nifty Staff Badges!
Discounted Admission to the Con!
Discounted Room Rates @ Con Hotel!
Access to "K-Employee" Only Areas!
The Joy of Knowing you put on a great Con!

And soooo muuuuch moooore!

Its been awhile since i posted on here, but after reading the past few entries it seems everyone wants the rewards of working instead of working to give others (the con-goers) a rewarding experience. When i started assisting this year on ( i think ) Saturday, i did it to help improve the con and make it more fun for others, i was not looking for the rewards given to employees.

True leaders find reward in the job itself.

Me Also! Me Also!

I met awesome fun-time peoples who want to be involved in lots of
fun time things! And I'm super pumped to help Ops and Relations this
year with anything they need! K-Con is going to be AAAAA-may-ZING!

Now that the general's are appointed, the wait begins for meeting TWO,
and the adventure known as; "Who will be staff for this year!?!?" I'm
sure it'll be a good turn out! I just know it!

I feel like that kind of scenario would make an excellent sitcom... one person sleeping all the time,
the other is constantly vaccuming or constructing furniture at 2:00am....

Oh the hilarity!

I would gladly take the Mantle of Yojimbo 1 if it is offered to me.

That said, I am also happy to see others try it on as I have.

Either way I am Yojimbo Through and Through

It would be nice to see this so called block time for each person, as it didn't really exist this year to my knowledge.
