Panel Ideas for 2007
« on: September 28, 2006, 11:20:59 am »
So what panels do you want to see in 2007?
Please recommend panelists if you know their names, etc (of course including yourself if you will be on the panel)...
Never to early to solicit suggestions!


I have one: anyone want a "How to do Applique" workshop? I think we could do that in the creation station. It most likely would have to be exclusively hand applique techniques (I know how to do invisible stitches  :D ) since I doubt we could scare up enough sewing machines (unless people brought their own).

I'll do my leather panel again if just one person says yeah.  

I'll sit in on a joint panel and do zippers, snaps, Grommets etc

With the foam Panel I knew all the cutting stuff already from making foam stage sets and the armatures for metal sculpture and know some tricks for doing cuts with giant templates, making multiple copies with injectable foam with molds and texturing and stuff.  I would be willing to sit in on that one too.  

I'm also going to be learning epoxy casting this year, which is used in "Cold Cast" metal and stone. (I have to learn it I have $300 worth of Molds and junk in my shop)

I want to see some more advanced classes in all subjects.

I wanna be a pirate ninja monkey from middle earth! Got a panel for that?! XD

Seriously, though, that'd be a cool panel. Maybe give some real history of pirates and ninjas and then the "history" of their feud. And present it all serious like while you're at it. XD

And then afterwards have a battle royal of sorts. Just trying to figure out how you'd do that with peace bonded weapons...

That's because I have the TRUE Ring of Power, Vondan.  And besides, I sent the Nazgul to go invent lactose-free yummy ice cream a few years back.  They're still too busy working on it to bother with anything else at the moment. ^.^

applique anyone?
« Reply #14 on: October 06, 2006, 11:12:43 am »
How about a panel / workshop / demo on doing applique correctly (I can run the panel)? I've noticed that several cosplayers clearly had issues with how to properly applique something on their costumes.....

We could also use a cosplay panel covering things like giving your costumes structure -- you know tricks like using wire to get the ribbons to stand out, or which kinds of interfacings work well to stiffen parts of costumes to get things to look just right)  ... I'd be on that panel, but would like some additional people on it besides moi.

A fabric swap or costumer's trade blanket could also be fun. People gather into a room with the stuff they want to trade and negotiate with others who have stuff they want. Great way to get rid of stuff / fabric / costume making supplies that you don't want and get new items you've been wanting to get.   :D

I don't quite know how Panels work, because I have never been to one even though I have been going to K-con three years running. (I feel pathetic for that, but I could never break away from my group long enough to visit them.)

I would Love to see how to make Cosplay armor and weapon panels, I know there have been those in the past, but like I said I always seem to miss them.

If pannels are general fanbase gathering type places? (don't know where I was going with that) Like a Yaoi enthusiest pannel ect. then how about a Fighting Game Character Pannel. I see enough fighter character cosplays around, and I do one every year. It might be kind of nifty.

Sorry if my suggestions are either confusing or really lame.

If I run fanfic programming again, there will be at least one panel on webcomics, and my goal would be to have multiple panelists: at least one who hand-draws art and at least one who computer-generates art. Anyone who has been a panelist for me once, I try to keep you aboard for multiple years and multiple cons, so consider yourself to have the option to be aboard, if I get the position again, catboy!

I would like to see panels for specific shows/mangas fandoms. I would like to attend one on deeper meanings in Utena, for example.

I had wanted to attend David's Yuri panel, before that got canceled....hint hint.

I had wanted to attend Brenda's on the Japanese view of the apocalypse or whatever it was that had to do with post-atomic bomb psychology....did that happen?

I was privileged to be on Guy's panel on Christian Anime Fandom (though not personally Christian), and hope  that something comparable can take place, perhaps expanding to incorporate reps from other religious vantage points.

Rem, if you can't find any good hand-drawing artists, I can draw decently.  I can send you a few in-class sketched if you want (my art book seems to have grown legs and wandered off, so nearly everything is currently on notebook paper in my English notebook.  Because Jane Austin lectures are just that freakin' boring!  :x )


A panel on Japanese history would be pretty neat.  I know a lot of people just think that there were samurai that magically transformed into buisness men over night, and that always annoys me a little.

Something on the Ainu would also be really cool, as almost no one really knows much about them, as they don't show up in anime ever.  The Ainu, for those not in the know, are actually the natives to Japan, not the Japanese.  I know, it's weird, but the Ainu crossed on a land bridge, if I remember correctly, from Russia, while the Japanese cam over from China/Korea.  So the Ainu actually have a much different culture than the Japanese because they came from a much different culture originally.

I think that's why parts of an old Norweigen folk tale are in one of the creation stories of the Shinto religion, the Ainu probably brought the story over from Russia, and they probably got it from who knows where.  But that old story traveling half way around the world is just amazing, and so odd.  It's kinda creepy, actually.  :shock:

Sorry, I did a teh Rant.  I read far too many history books. ^.^;

IIRC the first to Japan were the Popakoo (sic) a sea shore based culture existing on shellfish and such

Then the Ainu migrated from the northwest to Hokido and the main island and mostly displaced or absorbed the popokoo

Then a migration from south East Asia like the Philippines, that pushed the Auni out of the main island to just Hokido

Then a migration from Korea of a Chinese influenced culture that formed the ruling class and began the formation of historical Japan that further pushed the Aino to the north end of Hokido and the smaller islands north of there.

It's because to a lot of modern eyes prehistoric peoples were total boneheads.  They had skills and knowledge of certain things we can never duplicate and were able to conquer large areas with just rocks and sticks and the curiosity of “what’s over there” The prehistoric world was much more traveled and explored than history admits.  It’s nothing mysterious or conspiratorial.  A lone family or group  would find/locate/discover/invent and it was not written down and when all those who knew of it passed on it as lost.

They still find things like 1000 year old bronze dishes from china in Canada and it’s a 50/50 toss up that they came over in a Eskimo Canoe or a Viking Long ship by way of Constantinople

Correction, what evidence we currently have exisiting suggest they were boneheads imagination wise (setting aside the Greek plays, because those are just awesome).  But, you must remember, we don't even have a complete text of Beowulf, and we probably lost some of the most beautiful texts in the world in the third burning of the Library of Alexadria.  :wink:

Yeah those damn Library burners and worse they killed Hypatia the librarian (the worlds first Nerdy girl, I wonder if deadalus made her glasses).  That’s the same thing I was talking about but for a later era as history repeats itself.  Between the loss of written records in the social changes of the turn of eras BC/AD and the Plague killing off enough wise men and trades men a lot of historical and technical knowledge was lost and it took 500 years for the west to recover it (this was helped by the crusades bringing captured Greek documents back from the middle east) but it would have been just as easy to just send kids to college in Damascus.  But before written history a lot of things could have been discovered but it was still stuck in some ones head then they died.  Even after written history something were kept secret in various families or trades.  For example the fishermen from Cornwall and Normandy knew the location of America but they did not talk about it because the fishing off Canada’s grand bank was so good and profitable

Just 500 years to recover it?  Far more than that.  They have written evidence of working steam engines back in the day of Alexandria.  Non spontaniously exploding steam engines.

And they killed far more than just librarians, they slew any females who had been educated there as well.  This includes doctors, scientists, and other facests of knowledge.

I just suddenly realized something: my roommate is right, I am a nerd. ^.^;  I'm online discussing history at 1:30 in the morning.  Damn you KHAN!!!!

Yes I know it was more then just that one library and Hypatia, there was social unrest between the new religions and a new philosophy of logic and order.  But of course the Christians will blame the burning on the Moslems saying they used the records to fuel the hot tubs when in reality they would have taken any historical documents back to the researchers in Damascus

Well, to be fair, the Muslims did burn the Library the second time.  But it was able to be completely rebuilt, and the collection restored.  It was the Christians who went into a hoop-la and just torched that sucker and had a marshmellow fest the third time.

At least, that's what I remember from my Lit class last year.  But, then again, the NyQuil and ibuprfain might be doing funny things to my memories of who did what in what order and when.

Who burned the library the first time, again?

that can be your new rap song

Who burned the library,

who

who who who

who who

Who burned the library

It's been a while since I read up on it   (AndI had made a longer post above but damn it the forum times out if I take my time to research and type a long post) I just Wikid and it was burned at least 4 times

   1. Caesar's conquest 48 BC (a fire on the dock spread to the building)
   2. the attack of Aurelian in the 3rd century AD
   3. the decree of Theophilius in 391 AD, and

Christian uprising Patriarch Cyril of Alexandria  415 (Hypatias death)

   4. the Muslim conquest in 642 AD or thereafter.

But by the last time it had already been burned 3 times

And in the 8 th or 12th century it was a store house for munitions and was bombed or was that the Parthenon

I read a lot of history but have not had an actualy history class in 20 years

I would also like to attend such a panel...I'm big on authors' learning to but authenticity into their works set in various epochs of Japan or China.

Actually, Toni Levi wasn't available for KC this year, but at SC and especially at Anime Evolution, she gave workshops for me in the Creation Station called "The Werewolf in the Crested Kimono," which largely pertained to not only Japanese, but also especially Ainu, mythos as regards shapeshifters and/or those sharing the spirits of both or characteristics of both humans and non-human animals. This was based on an article of like title that she will publish in the debut issue of "Mechademia," a forthcoming academic journal on all things otaku---and I was her extensive beta reader for that article! :)

I'm going to do a Gothic Lolita how to. :)

Does anyone know if Panalists get a discount of admission? It's what I've heard (Is there an age limit? I'll be 16 at con time.)


I had to pay full price last year. I was told before the pre-reg cutoffs that panelists got discounts, but then AFTER pre-reg closed I was told "sorry, you have to pay full price now" -_-

the Lolita Tea Party will return again next year, of course

I picture a lot of running and pouncing and leaping and of course lots of B***H slapping with those Kwaii cat girl mittens.   Go “research” and watch some GLOW or WOW and Pris’s fight scean in Bladerunner

And then posing with the belt and issuing challenges.  Cause really the few times I watched "real" wrestling I’d get a snack during the fight and then watch the soap opera in between.


The show must have reference to the Squared Litterbox, the Kitty Slam, The Tail Lash, and The Fuzzy Nelson etc.

The sound track should be from the worst rated fight game ever titled "Catfight" and the theme song from Billy and the Boingers

Check with Rarnom of Lanime I was talking to him about the cat girl or sumo wrestling and he said they had the sumo wrestling at one of the lanime parties.  So some one with Lanime may have a line on the suits and any reg or wavers needed.

I just had an idea since Lanime has run the Sumo Suit wrestling before why not see if they would run it for K con.  Have the big anime clubs in Oregon each sponcer and run one event and they can pull together the volenteer crew

Yeah the Clark College Anime Club is to run a 90 minute musical program on the history of anime entitled Lewis and Clark: Anime Journey of Discovery.   When President Jefferson sends Lewis and Clark out to explore they end up in various anime lands and there guide is the catgirl Nekojawea.

Edit:

That’s it I had another tiffany!  The Clark College Anime Club mascot is now officially Nekojawea.  So as the Clark entry in the catfight you will have a catgirl in a Indian princess outfit with a hatchet.

Hey Washougal, would you mind taking another suggestion or two?  I'd really like to see a more academic panel, something which would address the world of anime from a cultural studies/anthropological background, so we could talk about the patterns of symbolism and representation in the genre.  I just picked up the Napier book, and I'm really excited about it.  I also noticed that in years past, we had some academics from PSU presenting at the con.  I would LOVE to see something like this next year.

here is a link to a review of his book.  I had just googled for anime University of Oregon and he kept coming up.   I sent Nyco27 his info and she said he was the same teacher she had already spoken to about reforming the club (When the founding member graduated it sort of died out)

Okay Some new ideas!

expanding on Darklighters idea of dark animes & Myths behind them.

Why not have "Anime Inspired?"  As in what are the real myths and stories that have inspired some of the most popular Animes.


Next What about Some more Kid programing Like a small kids festival that include yugio card games and pin the tail on Inu Yasha.

Expanding the Creation Station to include: Flower arangment & Origami.

I had an idea for a Chibi Room or Chibi Day.

And it's pin the fox tail on Naruto

If we had the room the panels on Flower Arangment, origami, Samurai Swords, Medevil Japanese clothing, japanese history and japanese myths  could all be in one room devoted to Japanese history and culture.   thats about 12 hours of programing other could be added but it would mean the need for another team of volunteers (In Kimonos) to watch the room

I have not yet reached Toni (Dr. Antonia) Levi, PhD, so I don't know if she would be available again. But for a couple KCs, and also at the Creation Stations at SC & Anime Evolution, she provided multiple academic presentations on topics including shapeshifters (etc.), the Joss Whedon universes, & yaoi........She's AMAZING. brilliant & engaging.

OMFG! I just had the coolest idea!  A home made bento workshop panel. We could learn to make all those delicious things Sakura and Tomoyo have for lunch, or perhaps Yomi's extra spicy croquettes.

I actually had her for two of three semesters last year at Portland State. She seemed like a very interesting and engaging professor on the topic of Japanese culture, and the many facets of japanese pop culture. Unfortunately, that wasn't the course, it was simply freshman inquiry which didn't really click with her academic focus, I suppose. I did get one class hour where she discussed Japanese pop culture and anime, which really was amazing and I think it would be a great idea to have her on a Kumoricon panel, in some way. I think a lot of people would benefit from checking it out.

(a) Sorry that I had missed the earlier post re: Expanding the Creation Station to include flower arranging & origami. As the Creation Manager for KC, I can say that pretty much anyone who says they want to run an event, contest, workshop, demo, skit, whatever, and to run it in the creation station, is more than welcome to do so. However, I don't personally know anyone particularly skilled in those areas. I did have origami paper available at KC '05, and in fact, received 2 entries in KC's first Creation Station art contest that were origami instead of drawings or paintings! (one was even of godzilla!)

The only concern I have about flower arranging is allergies. Personally I have been hospitalized with asthma before (right before KC '05, in fact), and some plant products prompt an allergic / asthmatic response in me. I don't know of how many others this is true...but due to this possibility I would recommend that if there is a flower arranging panel, that it be held outside, and/or in a room that could ventilate well before and after, and that whatever occurs in the room immediately after (if it is not outside), that there be a little sign up cautioning that there may still be pollens in the air and to be cautious if one is allergic.

Ditto regarding food workshops...I would *LOVE* to have a theme party type atmosphere in which folks bring and/or demo/learn how to make, items prominently featured in eps of various anime. The strawberry-picking ep & sweet card ep of Card Captor Sakura come to mind, of course, but maybe also some sweets visible in the bakeries in CLAMP School Detectives and/or Chobits?......but we should probably put up signs saying things like "if you have any food allergies please let us know and discuss with us before sampling any products" and have a list of ingredients visible in print for each item. (this also helps those trying to have vegan, vegetarian, pesadich/ passover-specific, kosher, diabetic, or other special diets.)

i attended psu in the past but not in toni's department, regretably.

a panel on the forming of the con would be great because we are a highly successful & innovative newbie on the scene, known for some of the ways we stand out from the crowd of other cons....and it would be great fun to inspire others to start up something that was actually still in oregon *chortle* i mean it's always fun to help folks develop their own projects with zeal and enthusiasm.

I do love the idea of a Japanese cooking panel, but I shudder to think of the potential difficulties involved. Such as having stovetops available, including the possibility of getting burned and is KCon liable for such a thing. Then there's Rem's earlier mention of food allergies. I know there's even more problems involved, so this kind of thing would require a lot of thought and preparation.

I still love the idea though...

i think Relations would have to weigh in on the subject of any kind of food demo, because they would know whether this new hotel of ours has any restrictions on preparing and/or serving food, such as having a food handler's and/or restaurant license......

I like the idea of making home made bento's.
Or just a panel on a panel on making japanese food.
I could help with that one too as I make different japanese dishes

My family has a really yummy gyoza recipe.  We always make it on special occasions like birthdays and holidays.
I would not mind teaching it to people.

How about a panel ware we go to see some one "Demonstrate" how to make a bento.  And this class has a fee of $4 or $5 and the student gets to take the "Project Bento" to "Examine".  I bet several hundred "students" would attend that panel over all 3 days probebly during lunch time.  And there should be a nearby short class ware they demonstrate how to poor soda for 99 cents.

I wonder if Uwajimaya would be interested in getting involved in a Japanese food demo...? And really, as long as you could plug in a rice cooker, you could probably demo a bunch of stuff. It would be the sampling that would be hard since I think you need a license to disperse foodstuffs (and there are laws about sanitation blabla.)

Another idea I just got from stealing it from another con - Japanese travel panel. Just people who have gone in the past year or two relating there experiences.

Would anyone be interested in a "Cosplaying on the Cheep" or "Raiding your closet for fun and cosplay" panel? I was thinking about taking a trip to the Goodwill and throwing together a few popular costumes for under $20, then just add a piece or two from the vendor room. Would be a fun challenge...

yeah you stole my idea when I'm rich I was gonna have a game show "Who wants to date a Millionare Nerd with contest like LOTR Trivia, Build a Computer from a box of Parts and MAKE A COSTUME FOR $20 in TWO HOURS.

I could speak a but on costume stuff and goodwill I scrounge costume type stuff a lot (I found a post man hat for $1 that sold at an auction for $120).  If it is in the Cosplay panel room I'll be there any ways at the repair station with boxes of junk.  The other day I dressed Negime as Negime with a cape made from a 25 cent futon cover and a magic Scepter that was one leg of the tripod to a Portable 35 MM Microfilm camera

And my crazy Idea of having like panels in the same room and then a staff for each room to watch supplies and displays.   Like a cosplay room and a new one this year if we can get more Japocentric panels a room of Japanese history and culture.  And how about a room for older anime fans 30 to 40 and the ladies with glasses get in free

How about an “Anti Cute Things” Panel?

Thanks! XD
I needed that!
But I should point out that I don't hate ALL cute things, just the annoying ones.  If that happens to be most of them so be it.
But to clarify maybe it should be an “Anti Annoying Cute Things” Panel, there by we don't accidentally involve the ones that are not that annoying and couldn't be taken out of the anime without major plot changes.

If the Wi fi at the hotel is fast enough this could be done using the sources off the net at the con.  There was a panel last year that showed video off youtube of the Bishe walk off at another con.  All they had was a laptop and an overhead projector that can display a laptop sceen onto the wall

Correct, we did that at the Creation Station's Parody Panel. The Bishie Walk-Off is anime cons' answer to the Ben Stiller-Owen Wilson gem "Zoolander", a highlight of Anime Evolution!

My understanding was that cost was a factor in ongoing negotiations with the new hotel as to whether or not WiFi will be accessible throughout. I certainly hope that it is....not having it at Sakuracon causes complications for my room, particularly the fan art & fanfic contests & multimedia/parody events.

Washougal Otaku, have you heard whatever happened with the idea that some of last year's proceeds would go into buying some projectors & screens for panel rooms? Knowing how many staple supplies we have, & whether or not we have net access, will really help you with scheduling!

Meantime, the following are new panels at Sakuracon's Creation Station that *might* also make their way to the Kumoricon Creation Station if there is interest:
(a) NaNoWriMo (with permission from said event);--National Novel Writing Month;
(b) a 3-day Anime Drawing workshop.

The only worry I have about an actual cooking panel is that the hotel may have issues about using certain cooking devices in the panel rooms. We'll have to check with the hotel to be sure it's allowed. (hotels do not like people building fires in their panel rooms....)    Sushi may work -- though that's not exactly cooking....

Panel Ideas for 2007

I think the only way we could pull off any sort of cooking panel at this con (in this space particularly) is to have it be very small and have the panelist hold it in one of the hotel's suites. That way there'd be a sink and refrigeration and counterspace to demonstrate everthing.

Unless that happens I sense that a real cooking panel will be an impossibility until we're at the actual Portland Convention Center (in a couple years, fingers crossed).

That's ok, I suppose.  Now can you help me figure out how to combine butter, flower, eggs, and sugar to make neko conneco?

Lat year I did a Q&A panel about the video game industry.  Anyone interested in me reprising that one?  I could do another panel about the industry, too.  Maybe 3-D Studio Max 101?  What does modeling and unwrapping mean?  Just what goes on in a game studio, anyway?

Also, I could do a panel about amigurumi, which is the Japanese craft of crocheting painfully adorable toys.

Yea?  Nay?  Ponies?
