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.

Doh Squared!   TUNAC: the Totally Unnamed Anime Club (at the U of O).  The founding members of TUNAC are the Founding member of Kumoricon and the Board members of Altonumbis.  Maybe there should be a panel on the history of K Con

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

Chibi Room!  Yes!  Awesome name for it!

I also like the Kimonos for the volunteers watching the room, & maybe for whoever will be doing panels in there.

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.

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......

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...

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

Ha! Awesome! I think this would be fun. Hm. Creative "reuse?" I used some old water stained curtains to be Samara from The Ring. Just combed my hair over my face and was scary as hell!

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?
They anger me to no end with their annoying high pitched voices, them being on the verge of ether uselessness or Godliness in terms of power.  I can’t be the only one!

Kayoe, you need some of Guy's AMVs. Guy (our AMV dude) made an AMV called "The Chibi things that met Ma Deuce."

MaDeuce is a large military rifle.  :twisted:

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.

"ANIME HELL = Three hours of short films, wacky commercials, bizarre footage, forgotten educational films, inane public service announcements, and trailers for films that may or may not exist!   Not for women, children, or sissies.  In fact we're not sure who this show is for..."

Funny funny stuff....

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.

Actually, I was hoping to talk with Brenda about this at tomorrow's meeting & get this ball rolling.

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....
