« on: September 07, 2007, 01:32:03 am »
I'm sure you guys have seen these before but I thought it'd be fun to start one to remember the funny things lol.
I'll start?

You know you're at Kumori-con when you see the Merchant Man selling Pocky <3
And
You know you're at Kumori-con when you take the elevator, get off at the wrong floor because you were reading the numbers from the mirrors on the walls. (ex. 2 and 5) lol.

list goes on? XD

You tend to find that beginning phrases like "I know this sounds weird" is completely pointless. No one is going to think it sounds weird.

You know you're at Kumoricon when you will get in a very long line without even knowing what the line is for. (Well, I did it a few times. After about ten minutes...."wait...what is this line for?")

You know you're at Kumori when you think 'This is a nice place for the convention...too bad it won't be here next year'.

My friends and I joke about how Kumori con is slowly moving north and is never in the same place twice. xD

You know you're at kumoricon when you see multiple people who have dyed their REAL hair colors such as purple and blue.

Also, you know you're at kumoricon when wearing cat ears doesn't get you weird looks, but hugs instead!

And... when you are in constant fear of being hit in the rear with a yaoi/yuri/whatever paddle by a complete stranger randomly. (I saw a group hitting each other and ran... I was also Ritsuka at the time X_X )

... also, you know you've BEEN to kumoricon when you get back home and normal clothes look weird. XD

That's good. If it's consensual, then it's probably fine, but if it's non-consensual...you're in trouble.

One problem with even consensual play like this is that in a crowd, bystanders may not realize the "consent" and get the wrong idea.

You know you're at Kumoricon when you walk into a crowded room and not even the people in the room know why they/you are there or what is going on.

You know you're at Kumoricon when you spend 5 1/2 hours watching stereotypical rivals periodically play RPS.

You know you've been to Kumoricon when you understand this sentence, "I was looking for Ops when a buttoning button hole cut me off going to the elevator and made me wait 15 buttoning minutes waiting for another elevator. buttoning button."

You know you're at Kumoricon when you find the suicidal rants of Lupin III hilarious.

You know you're at Kumoricon when you can discuss the symbolic meaning of domes in both the sense of the apocalypes and breasts and be on topic.

You know you're at Kumoricon when everybody can recognise an L cosplayer but no one has a copy of Death Note LA 2 on them.

You know you're at Kumoricon when everybody can recognise an L cosplay but no one knows his real name (L's real name).

You know you've been to Kumoricon when you can make FFVII jokes without ever playing the game. (If anyone has heard by FF7 jokes and found them funny, note that I've never even had an interest in playing the game).

You know you're at Kumoricon when calling yourself a "House" is natural and accepted. (Anyone who gets this one gets 1000x2 internets).
