Best I can say is it's better than last year's, which had like 30 people overall.

I have never been to DragonCon either (though I stayed at the Hyatt where it was being held on the exact same time back in 2000), but I can tell you this: MizuCon 2017 was the second smallest con I've ever been to. I liked it well enough, and their selection of shops was surprsingly decent. THAT BEING SAID, the absolute smallest con I did was at the exact same hotel that Mizucon booked for this year. Tiny vendor hall, no guests, a couple panels for the entire day, maybe 30 people in total. So make of that what you will. DragonCon would be the obvious choice...except I don't expect them to actually go through with it."

More likely the Karens of the world are screeching this thing to a halt before anything. Looking at the blowback by keyboard warriors on other con threads/facebook caps guessing that might have some factor into it. Only other thing I could think of is the convention center could be doing remodeling? A few people I know working in construction have been busy as a bee remodeling places prior to reopening.

Would be interested to see if the convention center even has other bookings around that time."

We will be running all our shows with reduced capacity. With our new safety precautions in place, attendance and badges will be very limited so that we can ensure physical distancing. We’re working closely with each convention center to determine how many people are permitted in the building every day and at a given time.

We are requiring approved face coverings for all individuals attending our events, including our exhibitors and staff. They must be worn at all times within our venues. For more information, you can visit the FAQ pages on each of our show websites.

Temperature screening upon entry will be required to enter our events. Anyone with an elevated temperature will not be permitted to enter the event.

We will have increased sanitization and cleaning with enforced physical distancing throughout the event.

We have also adopted a firm no handshakes, no high-fives, no hugs policy. We’re all going to have to get very smooth and cool-looking at either the elbow bump or air high-fives. Please start practicing now."

ReedPop was messing things up already desu. SuperCon 2019 had almost nothing to do after dark cause they removed all the interesting panels. Quite pointless, since all the kids and parents are gone by then anyway. Whatever the case, I'm not concerned about minor things like "No handshakes and high five's." With one exception, each of the four 2021 cons was bigger than the last so this one will probably pan out alright. And if not, I'll do what I always do and look for con-related, adjacent stuff."

This is really cool. Glad there is enough evidence that vaccination reduces transmission for them to do this. I wish there were more consistent accurate ways to show you're vaccinated like there are in other places in the US cause a stupid card that has been forged by people already isn't really all that reliable. But either way hopefully vaccination rates go up more now that younger kids can get it and we can be back to normal.

Of course cons and other places want to still have mask requirements because not everyone is vaccinated/herd immunity is still a little ways away. If we can just hit that mark, things will go back to normal quickly. The first step is likely trying to get stuff approved for even younger kids and get them vaccinated as soon as possible to reduce transmission from sending kids back to school without social distancing measures."

pretty classic congoer-oriented anime con, somehing florida doesn't have a lot of these days. known for its rave which is pretty fun (though you'll have to sneak in alcohol or any other substances you wanna bring - and they check pretty thoroughly). also known for the shows they run (cosplay chess match, fire shows, a few others), though i've never actually been to any so i can't tell you if they're worthwhile. the venue itself is decent, on the smaller side but the outdoors area in the back facing the bay is really pretty and always lively. the embassy suites is a pretty nice host hotel, big rooms and the way all the balconies face each other makes it good for meeting others. direct access to the convention center is nice.

Hey thanks, never been to Tampa with the intention of a con or downtown Tampa for that matter. Good to know the other archive posts tend to be in line then since I kinda booked without looking too much into it other than "con happening". Hotel is close enough that if I need booze that badly, right now just trying to figure out game plan for getting around. I've never done the light rail there but guessing it's about as okay as you get with public transportation for the state.

Is 7th street safe/okay enough to get to via the light rail? looks like it's a 15 minute ride from the con center so for friends and meets was wondering about just going up there for food and drink. Would rather trek 15 minutes for less a wait than burn time standing in crowded food stands by the con.

>I don't wanna be hassled while walking around the convention.
Just do what every single other con goer does here. Fill up a gatorade bottle or something with booze, and walk in with it looking sealed. Unless they smell it on you while walking in or you are obviously drunk as piss doubt anyone would care. I don't think I've been to a con in FL where obvious alcohol use wasn't everywhere."

>it is officially a family friendly con so you will have to keep any sort of intoxication to a minimum.
More like don't walk in with a clearly marked drink full of booze.
1. Drink
2. Make sure you are not reeking of booze
3. Keep your mouth fucking shut around staff
4. Enjoy
It's florida, everyone attending a convention in the second half of july is already on something. Just all about how you handle yourself, I know some people who can get well drunk but socially be fine and others who can drink 3 beers and be destroyed. Just check yourself before walking in."

Into the rave. Getting into the con is just a regular bag check, and I don’t think alcohol is what they’re looking for anyways. Rave is a different story, they will check your pockets, wallet, etc. for drugs/alcohol. At least that’s the way it’s been when I’ve gone."

Another time, many years ago, I was at Holiday Matsuri there and got so drunk I puked in front of the McDonalds. Not my proudest moment and I've since learned my limits. The fact that I have never been to that hotel sober just makes it this weird plane with winding hallways that dont end.

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==10640040 && dateTime=="06/30/21(Wed)08:18:24")

I have no idea what is up with the room situation this year. Holiday Matsuri has NEVER fully sold out the OWCM, so either their room block this year is smaller or there’s a lot more weebs going after being cooped up for 2 years. I’d keep checking back on the site multiple times a day with the hopes that they get a bigger block or people drop rooms. They hold live-streams too where you should be able to ask if more rooms are going to open up or not. Given that the hotel has suites (besides the promenades) that still don’t appear on the booking portal, I’m pretty sure it’s just a room block issue."

They have a panel at the convention for those who are going to the conventional alone .

Friday July 23, 2021 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Meeting new people at a convention can be scary, and going through a convention by yourself isn't always a lot of fun. Here is an opportunity to meet fellow con goers who are looking for an extra friendly face around the convention, ask questions about conventions, or just chill out. You may come and go as you wish knowing that this is a safe place for you to meet new friends to share your convention experiences with. Possibly meet a new friend or two that you can share future adventures with as well. This is open to first time con goers, experienced solo goers, and anyone else willing to meet new people and make new friends :)"

Yes and that is the problem, I don't mind since I am in an open relationship as I know women have special needs that some people can't do. The fact that she was carried around to carelessly and stuff was what annoyed me, all he did was tell me to grab his phone. I don't care if anyone wants to pose with my gf but please don't treat me as someone who doesn't care about my girlfriend. I mean to be real I probably make more than that militarty mutt in bitcoin a month than he does in a year going from what he was talking about,

First metro. Was pretty disappointing.

For being an anime themed con the panels sucked and the guests sucked.

It wouldn't have been so bad if they had +18 stuff but they don't. It sucks trying to talk to people only to find out they're underage."

This was my first metrocon too. I wouldn't say I'm disappointed, and I still had a great time, but it was lacking in comparison to some other cons.
I liked it enough that I'll probably go again next year. Holmat is so much better than metro was though.
You're right about not having any 18+ events too. Makes no sense why an event that goes on until 3 in the morning keeps everything pg-13. I get wanting to be family friendly, but at least at night they should have 18+ events."

-easy to get around once in it

-entrance to the con changing whenever it felt like for whatever reason
-no lanyard because ???? like seriously wtf

I was kinda taken back by that too, like it's not required but the panels were really really trying to be like PG13 as possible.

I don't understand what's going on at Metro for a con that runs so late why are they so focused on being 'family friendly'.

The really kicker was the Rave. Why was this rave so good? And how the hell did they get away with not doing age checks here?

I'm just glad I was able to go to a real proper con before coofmania sets back in again. I would probably go again in future years as late July is far enough enough for my other con circuit to make it worth."

"My thoughts:

Rave was really fun on both Friday and Saturday.
Not a ton of people at the con on Friday but Saturday was huge, and Sunday was pretty lively for a Sunday. Seems like their strat of keeping the costume content on the last day helps them significantly.
Huge percentage of people there were cosplayers, so that's always nice. People seemed generally friendly and courteous as well, didn't have any bad experiences in that regard. Definitely saw someone yelling at convention center staff for not letting them through a certain entrance though.
Con security never felt overbearing. I know there have been complaints about them in the past.
Embassy Suites was a lot of fun. Throw a rock in there and you'd hit someone inviting you back to their room to chill or party. Sucks they weren't giving late checkout this year though.
Overall it was pretty much as expected. Metro itself is never an amazing con, but if you have a solid group of friends or are willing to meet people, you will have a great time."

Though they kicked you out back to your rooms at like 1AM and the rave was in a tiny sad room with no one there.

I’ve done it a few times. I will say that it’s nice at first if you’ve ever been crammed into a hotel room with like 6-8 people, but it gets lonely quick. I remember I did metro alone one year and I was at a high up room at the Hilton, overlooking the city at like 2am in a freezing hotel is super fucking lonely.

Ya know it isn’t all bad Anon, if you’ve got a bunch of cosplays it really takes the struggle out of finding space for everything because the whole room is yours to do with what you please, lay your shit everywhere and still have room for stuff and not feel cluttered. Plus you can eat pizza buck naked in your hotel room after sweating your ass off at any Florida con besides Holmat.

"All in all thoughts:

First Metrocon and first Florida convention, so I'll lead with that.

The venue wasn't too bad to navigate, there weren't too many waits or delays for events, there was more than enough people to finally give that "conventions are back vibe", lots of fun cosplays and fun people to hang out with.
Vendor's hall was surprisingly well stocked

Only place I'd really dock it would be the paneling. There weren't like any 18+ panels or late night "adult" paneling in general. Then there weren't really many celeb guests, but I suppose everyone is still covid spooked.
The late night part would be easier to fix. Both nights it was pretty much rave, room party or bust.

Other than that, overall it was a lot of fun. all the cosplayers zipping around town on scooters was hilarious. Tampa's a pretty city (with a lot of homeless people) and between the boardwalk and the scooters, navigating from the Aloft to the con was a breeze. Tampa does need a liquor store somewhere downtown there though.

I have fun planning coords and cosplays and talking about fashion.

Most of my real life friends went woke and they have become super annoying and just want to complain about whatever the popular social justice topic is. I just want a friend who likes to make jokes about everything and laugh with me!

Potentially ultra based female friend do you exist? Email me at [email protected]"

"Nice to go back to a big show again. First time at the con center since the remodel, I wish I would have brought my tanks out there was alot more space to drive them around than I expected. The cosplay competetion on Saturday had a few last minute dropouts and I think they had a judge dip on them last minute as well. Mark knight rises was listed as a judge but I never saw him and in prejuding it was just the 3 ladies. Sad I only managed second at the competetion since I've been itching for a shot at an international competetion. I'll have to pull out all the stops for the next one and make something really insane.";

Heyy I was the shitty chris redfield that passed by when you were out of suit on the 2nd floor. I wish I could've seen you in the full suit in person but it looked amazing. Sorry about getting only second, I thought you'd definitely win"

Hey anon! I exist but I don't know when I'm moving to Florida or what part of the state (it depends on what my job does) but if it's central FL I'll let you know!"
