Kumoricon 2011: Bad/Creepy/Downright Weird Moments
« on: September 05, 2011, 11:39:38 PM »
I was just curious to see if anyone else had any bad, or just weird moments during the con; broken cosplay, creepers lurking, etc.

I guess I'll start!

This year, nothing too disastrous happened during the convention. Everyone was nice and friendly, the location was great, and it all was just amazing. But there's always this one guy who creeps us out a little too much, yea?

This year, I ran into my first con attendee that crossed the line of being a fan to a pedophile. So I was walking to my car to put away some purchases, by myself, and at the crosswalk, this guy comments on my costume. I say thanks, and attempt to move on, but then he continued talking and mentions a Sailor Moon cosplayer. Trying not to be rude, I stayed and listened, and he started saying some pretty vulgar things and what he would do to her if saw her, most along the lines of sexual assault (the word 'rape' was included in his description...). Disturbed, I quickly crossed the street and ignored him. when I was by the parking garage, I could see a hotel employee or con staff talking to him and I heard the guy trying to defend himself and trying to pull it off as a joke. I think he had his badge taken away/told to leave the con space. Least to say, I was/am worried about all the Sailor Moon cosplayers I saw, and I will definitely watch my back more often at cons.

well, I was waiting in line on day 2 for an autograph from David Vincent, and this pokemon cosplayer was in front of me and having a battle by himself. Then he kept getting really close to these 2 girls in front of him and talking to himself, pretty sure he had some kind of problems, I felt really bad for him AND the 2 girls, weird but sad  :(

Well when my friend and I were waiting in line for registration on Day 0, this creepy hobo that REEKED of beer came up to us and started rambling about stuff. We couldn't understand a word he was saying but i did hear him ask my friend if she was Japanese and i swore i heard him ask if he could touch her. I really wanted to run and find a staff member to help but i didn't want to ditch her there. Luckily, the Hilton manager [or at least i think. he looked very fancy XD] came up and escorted the creep away. And the fancy manager man even came back and asked us if we were okay! Mad props to that guy. He sure saved us!

Pretty sure I creeped the hell out of a girl when I asked her if she lived in the same town as me.  I worked at a retail store in a small town for almost 6 years and I would see her all the time. XD

The people from that Oxfest or whatever kind of creeped me out.  :\  I was getting a lot of whistles and hollers when I walked through the park.  I was more than happy to oblige them with some humor, but it did get a bit old. ^^;

There were some creepy hobo guys walking around the park on one of the days. They were calling the cosplayers "freaks" and were saying a lot of bad things. HATERS GONNA HATE.

hahahaha. I think I saw that guy. Pretty sure he was yelling it at me, too. I didn't even dignify him with a glance. Apparently it must have pissed him off because he made sure to yell it several more times in the hopes that I would look over at him.

My con experience was pretty good. I had some good times and bad times.

Well. I remember waiting in line for Todd Haberkorn's signature, there was a guy behind us just COMPLAINING the whole time, saying rude things. Like..: "Why is it taking soo long?" "Can't Todd hurry up?" "The staff suck at this!" and stuff like that. And he said something rude to my sister, which I forgot what he said. =/ That's about the only bad time that made me irritated, besides the fact it was hot this year. X.X

I have a few. I also had a good con experience overall but with some very creepy people here and there.

One was while walking from the Hilton to the Red Lion at night with my friends, and a creepy guy riding past us on a bicycle said "it's past kiddie's bedtime" to us. We're all in our 20s. We're not exactly kids. It was just very, very odd and uncalled for, and if he meant it as a joke, the way he said it had no hint of humor, it was just....flat.

Also, while walking back to our hotel the following night, a rather dilapidated old van with random numbers and things painted on it drove past. The windows were all tinted totally black so you can't see inside. After I stared at this thing for a moment, it began to play horribly creepy music, sort of like an ice cream truck but slowed down. After it passed us, it turned around and came by us again. We really wanted to get the hell away from that thing, LOL. We can actually look back on it and laugh because of how random it was, but at the time it really bothered us.

And lastly....normally I don't like to talk badly about people on forums, I HATE drama and I never seek to cause any, but these people are asking for it. About to enter our hotel, two guys in costume walked up to us, one was all decked out in American flags and the other was sort of like a stereotypical depiction of a Middle Eastern person. The American flag guy started asking us if we had seen his friend who is a ninja. I noticed a third guy standing a few feet away with a camera, so I figured they were trying to get funny reactions from people for a youtube video. I kind of wanted to play along so I said, "if he's a ninja, how would I have seen him?" well the American flag guy continued to rant very quickly and borderline incoherently, and I then heard him throw out the phrase "We all know he loves some p***y, so we thought you might have seen him."

Now, this guy was a complete stranger to me. You do NOT walk up to me if you don't know me and start using language like that. You just don't. At that point the conversation stopped being humorous to me, the smile vanished from my face, and my two friends and I stared at the guys dumbfounded as they continued with a clearly scripted (and not funny) rant. The second guy would occasionally pop in with babbling in a fake language that was supposed to sound Arabic. My friends and I were not in the mood to deal with them so we just walked away. As we did, American flag guy started to shout something about "it's not gay, it's definitely not gay!!" So there you have it: rudeness, misoginy, racial insensitivity, and homophobia all wrapped up in a nice little package.

I honestly hope these people are reading this post. Whatever little video project you're working on there, guys, it's not funny. Comedy ain't your thing, so don't quit your day jobs.

my friend was wearing a Kaolla Su cosplay and she had her giant banana with her...Some strange guy on a back was like making weird faces at the back of her head and licking his lips and his eyes got REALLLY WIDE..and then to top it off he said "Monkey like Banana" and was heavy breathing...WTF So our group went back tot he Hilton and a few minutes later he rolled up outside and started chilling by the window. Eventually hotel security went outside and presumably started to speak to him.
    the truth is I really wanted to point at my friend and do a Shaquita voice and be all like "Sorry monkey but she likes vajayjay"
When I am chasing my tail and catch my back leg instead, I will not bite down on my foot. This hurts, and my scream scares my human.

I wouldn't really say bad, per say, but kinda a...damper? I was in a room (idr which one, most of my con was spend exhausted and out of it), and there was a group of girls behind me sketching. and for some reason, the topic of pornography/porn in general (both yaoi and yuri and het) came up in their chatter. I love hearing other people's ideas and takes on it, so I shamelessly eavesdropped.

One girl was saying how she'd been exposed to materials like that when she was fairly young, and another said "it was about the sixth grade for me!" and I silently chuckled (this was about when I got into it), remembering oh my god it's like me when i was their age!!!!. Well, the girl next to them heavily frowned and basically said...oh god. It was "The younger you are exposed to pornographic materials, the more it'll screw you over later on in life."

And the girls chuckled a bit, thinking she was joking around, but the girl was like "no, I'm serious. It screws you over psychologically and makes it VERY hard for you in later life, and you're basically RUINED because of it."  I really was shocked because...almost everyone I know, both friends and FOAFS (friends of a friend) have been exposed to pornography/nudity/sex whatever at a young age and we turned out just fine. plus, it was their lives, not hers, y'know?

Almost everything she said after that was a negative mannerisim, too. :|| She also got into a mini rant about how "SLASH IS NOT CANON" (and she sounded serious business about it) and just generally was kinda....a damper. That was the only time I saw her, but really? Even if it's your personal belief, don't shove it on other people.

As for creepy moments, just the same creepy van Kayu1111 talked about/those youtube guys/the biker.

the one called uboa moon

On Monday I moved my car since it had to be out of the garage by 1. It was about a block away from the park - so it wasn't too far off and there were no people.
I forgot something in my car and was walking there alone.  When I'm almost there, I see these two guys pull up in their car and park next to the sidewalk.
I kind of glance at them, but notice that they're staring at me. I was just in a Superman T-shirt and some shorts - nothing odd really, so I got kind of suspicious.
Right after walking around the corner, I fast-walked / jogged to my car only about 30 feet down the road, and got in.
I kind of laughed that I was being paranoid, but sure enough, the two men I saw in the car walked into the intersection they last saw me going.
I'm pretty sure they were looking to mug me since they were looking for "something" pretty intensely before they ran back to their car and drove off.

They had nothing to do with the con itself, but still pretty sketchy.

Ive got a few. On day0, my lil newcomer was standing behind me and my boyfriend when a drunk guy came up, in the middle of the day and he was obviously hammered, and started like asking us for change and money. Then i swear i heard him ask my friend for her to come drink with him. She was 16, but looked about 12. Then to top it off, on day 2, my boyfriend was a heavy so i took him over to a group of scouts and people to get a picture. These awesome people were there that i had been dying to get a picture of, they were zombies. So i say to my boyfriend that im gonna go get a picture, and this old woman steps into our path and starts asking my boyfriend to lick her scabs off her arms and then when he almost punched her for grabbing his face, i stepped in and told her to back off. She then asked me which scab i wanted to eat and tried to shove her elbow into my mouth. My boyfriend pushed her back and told her to leave but she wouldnt so we left and told security. I dont know if they got her out of there.

The fail troll guys with the video camera and the American flag guy, fake Arabic guy were most likely not our attendees, we asked them to leave the con space a couple times for not having badges and I saw the Hotel security escort them off the Hilton property.

Only have a little thing for this, about to have dinner stopped in bathroom and when I went into the stall, another girl in bathroom called me by a different name so I wasn't sure at first she was talking to me, and wanted to ask me a bunch of questions and I am like "uh just a sec I am busy"

Just ya know while in the rest room, if you got a question (unless its pass me some TP) it can wait for the hand washing faze of the process.

  Really REALLY bad guy crossplayers.

 I don't care if you guys want to do it but do it RIGHT.
Yes, we women crossplay all the time but we bind our chests to the point that we can't breathe or bend. The least you guys and do is SHAVE.

In general, a lot of creepy old Otaku randomly starting irrelevant conversations with my adorable and unfortunately naive friend.
She may no get it, but I do. Do not speak unless spoken to.

Not thirty seconds after I first arrived at the convention, an old man and non-con-goer demanded that I help his friend with his face paint (I was going as Kyoshi Warrior Suki) and that he needed my makeup. I tried telling him the only makeup I had was on my face, and that the same would be for most anyone else at the con, and he cried out, "Well, then what am I supposed to do?"

I slowly walked away...

While waiting for our ride these guys approached us aswell. They were talking about how they got kicked out of the con and how they were looking for their ninja aswell. We mostly played along until they ran out of things to say. It was humorous, but also made me a little uneasy since we were away from Hotel constaff, around people who had supposedly been kicked out of the con? In the end I assumed it was just an act to cheer up three bored looking people sitting on the side walk.

I saw the troll guy at the red lion, I did not know he was ghosting the con; Now I am worried I going to be passed on some schlock jock’s blog.. As for identity I say monitor attentive press blogs and shock radio jocks shows.
It is not uncommon to hear about such shenanigans pulled by shock jocks at furry convections. They often feel the need to sneak in with badly done costumes and  always shown the door.

I only had one creepy moment on day 3. Me and my friends were standing near a path in the park when the guy walking around calling us all freaks walked past screaming "FREAKS! YOU GUYS ARE FREAKS!! MEGA FREAKS" Blah blah blah. Then not even 5 mins later he comes back with a small purple flower he just picked, walks up and hands it to me saying: "I know it's not much, but I picked it just for you" I didn't know what to say so I just thanked him. He smiled and left after that.

I hope I didn't creep out the Cloud and Zack crossplayers I saw napping on Saturday night.



You guys were just too cute like that to not take a pic.

I had plenty of moments of my fellow attendees getting on my nerves or saying things I thought were tacky but that's nothing new. The only time somebody got a little too weird was a drunk Etzio outside the Hilton right after this picture was taken.

This one wasn't towards me but my friend. We were in the bathroom and my friend notice a girl looking at her shoe thinking maybe she didn't know what was going on, so my friend said something about that is was the bottom of her shoe and the girl said I know I was just looking at it. She does her thing and leaves, no problem. Then 20 minutes later, I was styling and curling my hair, her two friends come in all B....y like saying how rude it was for my friend to say that and just plain complaining. I'm not sure if these people were underage but my gosh chill, it wasn't like she said anything to hurt this girl, she was just letting her know what was going on thinking she didn't know. (my friend was sitting on the floor waiting). Please, people, get over yourself... If she was bothered SHE should have said something.

This one was towards me. I was told I needed to have a bandage over my eye for the character, well you know what, there was a time when she didn't have one.. People chill out.

And I didn't feel welcomed at all at the BB shoot.. So I left. :/
I wish people were more friendly, just because the character may not be friendly doesn't mean you personally as a person shouldn't be... BE NICE PEOPLE.

Rude comments made by people and you know what most of them were made by underage kids.. Grow up a little please. Just because something isn't perfect doesn't mean you should complain about it. And the darn chair thing at closing. GAAAHH.. That was annoying, it's darn chair. :/ At first it was funny but it got old real fast.

Besides that I had a great time. :)

Some point around the Pokemon photo shoot some lady walked past us muttering "Are you an American?". But she didn't seem to be talking *to* anyone, which was the strangest part.

Also I apologize if I creeped out the girl with the pokeball shirt who was sitting with her mom. I didn't mean to be creepy, just funny, but realizing you were probably underage (I couldn't see your badge in advance) made me realize that you might not have taken it that way. See, I'd been going around to all the Pokemon people going "Liberaaaaaation~" and that's why I made a joke to you that it was awkward that I couldn't do that to you since the pokeballs were on your chest...didn't think it through, sorry.

just had a serious fml / epic facepalm moment.

I was at the store buying groceries since I needed to stock up after not having shopped in awhile because of con.  Who walks right past me as I'm talking to my friend?  The same girl I'm pretty sure I unintentionally creeped the *bleep* out.  To make matters worse, she walked right down the aisle I needed to go down. AUGH. :|

Definitely the guy on the bicycle after the second rave. I was in my Kingdom Hearts OC cosplay, and he had this huge habit of following me. It was really creepy, bad enough that I asked a friend to walk me back to my room. So that I'd be safe. Then when I had to dead back to con, the guy was still there. Followed me on his bike, and made rude comments. I tried to shrug it off, but when his friends started talking about how he wanted to do things (sexually) with me, I went "I'm sixteen." which is a total lie to anyone that knows me. And what he said made me shudder. "Doesn't matter to me, if there is grass on the field it's open play."

I had a serious WTF moment with that.

Also, all the stuck up cosplayers. I had a small handful of buddies that actually spent any time hanging out with me. I seriously got to learn who really is a friend to me, this con. I'm not helping people anymore, and not being a counselor for their little bickering things anymore. I'm tired of putting myself forward to help others, and then get told "Oh sorry we are too busy to hang out now. Thanks for -insert whatever I did for them here-."

Also, I'm going to openly state this. The Locke Cosplayer (spelling?) From Final Fantasy. When the Final Fantasy group gathered for pictures on Sunday, your photobombing was NOT appreciated. You rather annoyed the man with the sword, and your constant need to get in on everything was a pesky and rather bothersome thing. Also, you were very creepy. For the SECOND time I've met you. Stop following me around con. I am NOT the voice actress for Lust, and don't you EVER glare at me like that again when I tell you not to do something. That photographer wanted a picture of Reno only, not you. You aren't even from the same numbered series. You weren't hot, so stop posing like a stud, and you weren't funny with your constant stealing of things. You were annoying. I swear if you stalk me ever again, I'm reporting you to the Yoji.  (Also if Reno reads this, Nova loves you and misses not having hung out more. <3)

Well when my friend and I were waiting in line for registration on Day 0, this creepy hobo that REEKED of beer came up to us and started rambling about stuff. We couldn't understand a word he was saying but i did hear him ask my friend if she was Japanese and i swore i heard him ask if he could touch her. I really wanted to run and find a staff member to help but i didn't want to ditch her there. Luckily, the Hilton manager [or at least i think. he looked very fancy XD] came up and escorted the creep away. And the fancy manager man even came back and asked us if we were okay! Mad props to that guy. He sure saved us!

Saw the same bum walking around in the middle of the glomp circle at the park on the evening of day 2. Fortunately he wandered away and the circle returned to normal. Though I'm sure a good chunk of people walked away quickly to secure their things, I know I did.

with all the weird creepy hobos i completely agree,they were harassing pretty bad.

im sure some emo kid some place thinks im an [redacted] now,but here was my bad moment welli guess a 'meh" moment,i was with 2 friends who are a bit innocent and timid looking.so naturally people try to be know it all jerks and condescending jerks to them,these were what i call bad hetalia fans,i know many hetalia fans,none are like this.[i know nothing of this series so no idea if germany looks like schrodinger]

my friend was dressed as schrodinger from hellsing,canon schrodinger,you know no point in being an actor even for cosplay if you do not go 100%,well first they mistook her as germany?no idea how,and started going on and on about how germany does not have the millenium arm band[schrodinger wears a nazi uniform,its what the character actually wears because he works for a faction of them in modern day called millenium for those who do not know,i see nothing wrong with acting as a character or a soldier in a re-enactment at all,its real nazis that are disgusting and killed my ancestors]we explained that she wasn't germany.and explained that that is the actual characters costume and that shes a cosplayer not a nazi,well they kept going on and on again and after 2 days of weird park harasser hobos previously i was at the end of my rope,so after they refused to listen to her and kept going on and on,i started being a douche,i admit it,but it made them leave lol and it was only with the use of words.

but it was like 5 minutes of harassing and completely ignoring everything she said even telling them to go look up a picture...they were trying to take a picture of my girlfriend but keep themselves there asking a billion questions with some snide remarks at the other friend here and there,it was the most unprovoked wtf thing ever,the other person who asked we told them the same thing and they looked up a picture of the character and apologized.

i guess it was more of just a strange passive agressive stubborness and unwillingness to listen than anything,but after like 5 minutes you would think they would just look it up,especially with an arabic cosplayer standing by her.i mean it wasn't terrible,but it was just kind of strange considering everyone else was ok with looking up the character and apologizing for assuming badly,all but those people.

My creepy moment was kind of weird. There was this guy in the park, I don't know if he was a con attendee because I couldn't see his badge but he was in what looked to be a Shippuden Choji cosplay, came up to me and in an indirect way asked me if I had any alcohol or weed, which is really odd since I'm only 20 and don't even look of legal drinking age. Then he kept trying to ramble on and make sure that I didn't have anything, and after I finally started leaving he moved on to a new target, presumably to ask them the same thing.

Also this isn't necessarily bad, but just disappointing: all the people who essentially tried to throw themselves into Cosplay Chess. First off, unless you are in the fight or summoned onto the board, stay off of it. There were quite a few moments where people just decided to run onto the board and help out with the fights, despite not being summoned. A prime example is one of the fights with Terra(I forget who he was fighting though), about 5 characters suddenly jumped onto the board to defend the other piece and made it chaos. Second off, don't interrupt the game to give additions that you think are necessary. A little bit of heckling is fine, especially if it is from the pieces or the chess masters since that is part of the show, but don't go overboard like people did this year. And especially when it came to giving the white Mokona weapons every minute. We get it, a Mokona with a weapon is funny. But you don't have to walk onto the stage in the middle of the show just because you think they should have one weapon over another. If you're a piece and want to have them wield your weapon after you die, that is more acceptable. Audience members jumping up and giving a piece a weapon, or god forbid a freakin' chair, is not okay. /endrant

I've also heard other baaaaaaad moments from friends, but I don't want to say anything about those.

This isn't bad, but funny.

I was staying at the Red Lion, and all of the pop machines on the first floor were sold out.

I head up to the second floor, get the the pop machine there, put my first fiver in it, rejected. Same for the other two I had. Since I had no singles, I go to the front desk.

No that I have singles, I am ready to get delicious soda. Pop the first single in. Success. Try putting the second in. It won't take it. It wont take any bill. I hit the coin return button and get four quarters. I head to the dealer's hall to feebly as for change. Sakura-Con changes my dollar for me, and it's back to TAKE WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY MINE.

All eight quarters go in with no problem. I want a Sprite. Sold Out. Fine, Coke. Sold out., Diet, Sold out. I push EVERY BUTTON FOR SODA, and at this point and fine with a friggin' Dasani. No Dice. I hit the last button for a Full Throttle. It dispenses.

I take the drink and leave, dejected the carbonation gods mocked me.

Generally I had a grade A experience, but there was one odd moment.  No costumes will be named, to protect the innocent.   :-\

While I was in the park, a man came up to me and complimented me on my cosplay, then told me he had a favorite pairing for the character and asked if I would let him take pairing photos.  I told him I would be glad to if he could find someone cosplaying the other character in the pairing.

Within moments, he was back, towing a puzzled but very friendly young man, and eagerly stood us next to each other.  He then...began to explain to the two of us, in elaborate detail, exactly why he loved that pairing and what his favorite romantic moments were.  Bewildered, we tried to get a word in edgewise to ask what sort of poses he would like, but he continued his speech undaunted.  In the meantime, neither of us could get back to what we were doing in the first place.

Finally, we managed to get an actual pose request out of him, and he snapped a few pictures.  So far, a little odd but not outright unpleasant.  Then he suddenly demanded that we kiss for him.

The young man - who had just met me - instantly looked very shy and uncomfortable, and I have a boyfriend, so neither of us was too keen on this idea, but we compromised by holding up the man's hat and pretending to lean in and kiss behind it.  Some other people nearby thought this was very cute, and said so.  The original photographer, however, was having none of it, and began to complain loudly that he wanted a real kiss.  We told him that we weren't comfortable with a real kiss and this would have to do, but he continued to complain.  After a moment, when it became clear to him that we weren't going to budge on this, he took his picture and went off looking irritated, without thanking us for giving him several minutes of our time.

Seriously - being asked for a picture is always a huge honor, but neither speeches nor borderline harassment are welcome behavior.

I was dressed as Female!Undertaker on day 0 and some drunk guy came up and was asking really weird questions. Not the usual "What is this/What's going on/Why are you dressed like that" it was stuff like "I'm an artist and like furries". He just stood next to me for about 20 minutes before saying anything to begin with, and when I made an excuse to get away from him, he followed me. It took a male cosplayer that walked by (who was like 6'5") to get the guy to leave. It really creeped me out...

I also had a moment with the carbonation gods mocking me when I went to subway on Saturday. First Pepsi I had in like months and it tasted like a slightly syrupy club soda really disappointing.

Also kinda wished I stayed in the Red Lion this year at least then maybe I'd have a better chance of sleeping at 2:30AM on Sunday night since I was on the 3rd Floor of the Hilton and could still easily hear the rave.

@blackjack That was the weird woman that tried to get my boyfriend to lick her elbow! She also asked me if i knew the kanji for love, to which i said yes cuz its tattooed on my arm. She was tweaked i swear.
I'm pretty sure this is the same lady who photobombed two of my clients during a shoot. :I It was slightly irking because it was going to be an awesome shot, but mostly just weird. xD They posed and I was about to take a picture when she suddenly walks up behind them and sits right in the middle of the shot. With this like.. very satisfied, creepy smile on her face.

She had been watching us for a bit and knew I was taking pics. So there's no way it was coincidence. There were also like a MILLION places to sit, yet she walked over and planted herself behind the water fountain. 8D.....


On a flipside though, I loved how many people came up and sincerely asked about what was going on and were interested in knowing just what the convention was about. I had two cars actually pull over and start up a conversation asking about all the costumes and stuff, and at the growers market my friend and I were stopped several times for photos just from the vendors and non-congoers.

This is kind of a creepy story turned funny (I think) but anyway my one friend and I were walking across the park to get to the Subway for some food when we came across this guy. He didn't actually talk to us, or come up to us at all, but at first glance we thought he was carrying knives and from his appearance he was very sketchy so for a few minutes we were a bit paranoid and trying to get as far away from him as possible. When we got to the right spot though I looked back and the light hit the item in his hand just right and he actually had feathers, not knives. But I swear how he was holding them and their shape...they looked like knives at first. So creepy, but relieving that we were wrong. xD;

i saw a creeper.... from minecraft!  :P (its am monster in the game that explodes).

but when i saw him for the first time, i was NOT in my minecraft cosplay (which was diamond tools and resource blocks strapped to me) and this made me sad. I said i would find him later, but when he went looking for me in the video gaming room, i wasnt there, which im sure was a bad moment for him.
he saw me again, but he was in a different costume :( this made me slightly sad. hopefully next year I will find him and actually say a time to meet up.

if your reading this Mr. creeper i deeply apologize for not being there when you walked down to the garage in what is basically a cardboard oven.

This year was actually my boyfriend and I's best con in quite a few years actually. But sadly i too have things to report about con. Mostly just simple creepy things and one big thing that.. I guess didnt ruin the con but was a serious downer.

First i have to rant about the downer, sorry. I didn't know where else to put it... Alright this happened on the night of day 1, around the time for the rave, we were down by the discovery ballroom area. Just looking around at all the stuff goin on down there at night time, and since it was my cousins first convention ever I was taking pictures of pretty much everything for her. So as im taking a picture of the almost empty hall way, this girl who looked like she was sleeping at first. Looked up and stared at me while i was talking my picture. (Which by the way, at the angle it was at she wasn't in the shot at all.) I put my camera down while i was looking around and noticed she was still staring at me with a very. . .angry look. So hoping she would finally look away, i hid behind the wall. When i looked back she was still staring at us. So being the young innocent first time con goer my cousin was she smiled and waved nicely at her, and instead of anything nice in return the girl blatantly rolled her eyes and flipped her off. My cousin tried to laugh it off and smile back at her but the girl just flipped her off again and and started yelling something at her she couldn't hear.
My cousin (her name is ashley by the way) walked over to hopefully clam this chick down but it did no use, she kept saying how she didnt want any pictures of her and she doesnt think she looks good, and that she had a really bad day and just wanted everyone to leave her alone. Ashley tryed to tell her that she actually looked really nice even though she wasn't in the picture and that should probably go to her room for somewhere quiet to sleep but the chick just yelled back at ashley to just shut up and stop lying and told her to not be so f**king stupid. . . That's where my boyfriend and I stepped in and the chick just glared at us, flipping us off and laying back down.
(which she insited on laying down there even when a line was ment to be right where she was. -_-;; )
She kinda... Made it hard to enjoy the rave since we were so peeved.
///endrant.. sorry

Umm the creepy/bothersome parts were the black van with the ice-cream truck music, a volunteer (i think) staff member (i dont think its right to name here) not leaving my cousin alone and insiting on talking non stop/following us around whenever he saw my cousin, while insulting me and my boyfriend at the same time.. while hitting on my cousin.. then trying to pull her closer by her hips to dance with him in the rave , and insisting the she needed to take pictures with him while he was shirtless. . . . wth??
Also a drunk smelling non-con going-guy asking if he could slip his hand under my skirt when i was pikachu. My boyfriend getting asked if he gets a lot of p**sy by another late night-non-con goer that was lingering by the park around 11, which i found very inappropriate and crude.. and not something you bring up to someone randomly that you dont know. . Oh and the youtube guys bothered me too.

OH!! One more thing that bothered me is a certain yugioh cosplayer trying to take sexual/kissy/ect poses with people they don't even know. I've had issues with them in the past trying to kiss me, and take sexual pictures with my boyfriend at kumoricons past. But now they were trying to take 'buttsex' pictures with my cousin and kissy pictures with a close friend of mine who has had a girlfriend for about 4 years or more now. Neither of which were enjoying this but didnt want to start a seen at con. That cosplayer (who i wont mention the character out loud) needs to hopefully learn personal space, and also learn that when I say i don't want to take a card full of pictures of there group and random pictures of them touching people in my group.. to please leave me and my friends alone! Thank you... ^^


Other then those, the con was pretty awesome this year. Hopefully we can have it there next year too? I really liked it this year ^^ (plus the crossplay 101 panel was awesome ^^)

REALLY Sorry the post is so big!!! >.< *made of fail*

Definitely the guy on the bicycle after the second rave. I was in my Kingdom Hearts OC cosplay, and he had this huge habit of following me. It was really creepy, bad enough that I asked a friend to walk me back to my room. So that I'd be safe. Then when I had to dead back to con, the guy was still there. Followed me on his bike, and made rude comments. I tried to shrug it off, but when his friends started talking about how he wanted to do things (sexually) with me, I went "I'm sixteen." which is a total lie to anyone that knows me. And what he said made me shudder. "Doesn't matter to me, if there is grass on the field it's open play."

I had a serious WTF moment with that.

Also, all the stuck up cosplayers. I had a small handful of buddies that actually spent any time hanging out with me. I seriously got to learn who really is a friend to me, this con. I'm not helping people anymore, and not being a counselor for their little bickering things anymore. I'm tired of putting myself forward to help others, and then get told "Oh sorry we are too busy to hang out now. Thanks for -insert whatever I did for them here-."

Also, I'm going to openly state this. The Locke Cosplayer (spelling?) From Final Fantasy. When the Final Fantasy group gathered for pictures on Sunday, your photobombing was NOT appreciated. You rather annoyed the man with the sword, and your constant need to get in on everything was a pesky and rather bothersome thing. Also, you were very creepy. For the SECOND time I've met you. Stop following me around con. I am NOT the voice actress for Lust, and don't you EVER glare at me like that again when I tell you not to do something. That photographer wanted a picture of Reno only, not you. You aren't even from the same numbered series. You weren't hot, so stop posing like a stud, and you weren't funny with your constant stealing of things. You were annoying. I swear if you stalk me ever again, I'm reporting you to the Yoji.  (Also if Reno reads this, Nova loves you and misses not having hung out more. <3)

I'm the Locke cosplayer you met and I have some things I wanted to explain.
I don't mean any disrespect when I say this, but you're over-exaggerating about a lot of the things you said about me and you don't me as well as you think.

Regarding the "photobombing": I wasn't trying to cause any trouble by doing that. I didn't know that those pics were being taken until the last second. If I had noticed right as they had been planned, I would've gotten in at that time. I don't normally jump into pictures like that and I wasn't trying to annoy anyone. I just felt like those pictures would be more complete with another FF cosplayer, since I was from the same series. I would not have done it if I was cosplaying someone from a different anime or video game saga. But I will be more careful at future photoshoots.
Also, when you said I was trying to pose like a stud, you clearly don't know enough about my character. If you've seen the Final Fantasy 6 character art, then you should know that Locke poses like that. When I dress as him, I normally pose in that position. When I cosplayed as Judas and Keele from the Tales series, I posed like them, too.

I'm sorry if I annoyed the guy with the sword. I was acting that way because like I said during the shoot, my character steals from enemies in battle. I don't have much experience acting in-character and didn't think to rehearse.
Sometimes cosplayers like to be in-character and I was just trying to be creative. The reason why I said "I'm stealing your sword" was so he'd be prepared when I pretended to do it. I didn't want him to think I was literally trying to steal from him and because FF6 is a popular game, I expect most FF fans to know who I am, since Locke is one of the main characters.

And when you said I was glaring at you, if I did, I wasn't trying to. I'm sorry if any expression I had made you think that, but if I looked to you like I was doing that, it wasn't intentional. If I was that angry with you, I would've explained it in a detailed note. I explain things best that way.

Also, when you said I was stalking you, what you said can't be farther from the truth. If you honestly think I was doing that, you worry too much. Of the eight years I've been attending anime conventions, I have never stalked one person, nor do I have any intention to, and you're the only one who has ever criticized me for that.
You need to remember that Kumoricon is much smaller than Sakura Con and Otakon and at smaller conventions it's easy to run into the same people several times.
Also, I get myself involved with a lot of different things at conventions and in-between events, I'm spending a lot of time thinking about those things as I walk through the hotel. When that happens, I don't pay as much attention to who I see and if you did see me as much as you said, I didn't notice you for that reason. If you see me at any future cons and run into me that many times, it's just a coincidence. There are multiple occasions where I've run into the same people at cons that many times. It is common.

And regarding Lust, if I asked you if you were Laura Bailey a few years ago, I don't remember that. If I had, I wouldn't have asked you that at the FF shoot. And I didn't think you were she. I expected you to take it as a joke.
When I'm at conventions, I often pretend to think that other attendees are famous people if I think they look like a celebrity or voice actor. I don't do it with most people I see, but if I do, it's only if I'm either at a photoshoot, waiting in line or if it's someone I've been around long enough. And you're the only person who's given a negative reaction. Most people I've said that to knew it was a joke, thinking it was funny and at least a few of them said that they get it a lot.

I'm sorry if I caused you any trouble during the weekend, but if you see me at future cons, please don't think I'm trying to stalk you. I'm not the person you think I am and I'll be more careful with how I behave at photoshoots.
