One I will note is that as much as Zenkaikon looks like an Anime convention it is so much more than that. He explains that this is his last year in the convention circuit and this is his last Zenkaikon. Crymson was ecstatic and took to the tasks ahead of us with a renewed vigor. Zenkaikon 2017 comes up and we are asked who we want to interview. With a star-studded guest line-up, a full schedule of panels and some amazing places to eat nearby, we were excited to go… and a bit nervous, as this was our very first Zenkaikon. The Fan and Guest panels where filled with diversity, fun and interest. Embrace that new person at their first con and show them how awesome it really can be.
As for Karl, thank you so much. In addition to presenting a variety of panels, Charles will also be bringing back last year's popular Haunted Tea House! This event is advance signup only and limited to 50 members. Crazy Uncle Yo 1 Ellen McClain and John Patrick Lowery Believe in me! Several tables and a multitude of chairs allow for relaxed people watching. Over the course of those three days, we were so positively overwhelmed that it was exhilarating. If you enjoy my cosplaying, feel free to check out my other social media for more updates. From , a coffee bar with a great theme and amazing food, to , a treasure of Pho that we found thanks to our good friend Paul and even the smoothie shop across the street. These games made such an impact on me that I started writing my own stories, even to the point where I used Krondor as the last name of one of my many fantasy characters.
However, if you are a bit twisted like I am, there was plenty of 18+ panels to wet your whistle. Radio Shack is going out of business, and with most everything still in stock bearing an 80% off sticker…we were desperate. It helped me not be as hard on myself. Our fearless leader swallowed her frustration and mustered on, working with what we had. They both delighted in this fact.
On Ice, Baka and Test and many, many more. Noodle King Before I go into more about the convention itself, I want to point out that central Lancaster, surrounding the convention center, is beautiful. The con is full of family friendly content! About Crymson Pleasure I am one geeky woman filled with the knowledge of role playing systems and video games long forgotten. However, I never felt the need to rush back to the car, the walk to the car there was more than one parking garage within a two block radius was refreshing and the weather this weekend made it more of a stroll than a rush. There were some traffic pattern issues to deal with, of course, the convention was in town and there was a race on Saturday, so some streets were closed. The highlight of my convention! Yes, here waited the guardians of the non-adult cos-players with pretzel and soda in hand, probably thinking the same thing I did. As we left the area we spotted an open parking structure and all of us made a mental note to come back to that one.
Not to mention the diversity in food and food pricing was an added bonus. We are already making game plans for things we should do differently next year, plans to make to be better organized, and gaming ideas. With all that being said, Ellen and John are too precious for this world. He has staffed conventions in the past, ran panels, judged a couple of masquerades, a jack of all trades. It was in these rooms that we had the pleasure of hosting our interviews. Being close to home, my introduction to cons began with Zenkaikon. He has won numerous performance awards with his friends over the years.
What I appreciated most, besides the friendliness of staff so many pleases and thank yous , was the admittance of lack of knowledge on a particular subject. I sucked it up, put the article up there and moved on. Dejected, we headed back to the convention. John voice acted in a little known game called Betrayal at Krondor. So many people complained about Destiny that they had the entire script redone with another voice actor. He expresses his emotions about it and even breaks a little at the end, sending me into waves of tears.
Facebook - Twitter - Instagram - Tumblr - Cospix -. Now, you go get a drink and we will continue this conversation later. Thus began, after much frustration, the quest for a mic that worked. This water cistern seems to have been converted to house runaway slaves. You name it and I seriously obsess over it. My most comfortable moments, both physically and socially, were when I sat in the upper lounge near Marriott entrance.
I only had one planned question. From kids to adults, sometimes we just need to hear that from someone else. My hopes were not high, and as we left empty handed again, I took in the sight our regal leader: red dress, black corset, blue hair, and gold crown festooned with gems. I was impressed by the steady stream of gaming through out the con and a Magic: The Gathering Tournament. As we stood to the side of the crowd to test our equipment, we found the shotgun microphone for our camera was dead. Those interviews and insights will come up in other articles as soon as possible. You need to convey so much to the player.
Even if you cosplayed just a little such as I did or a lot, everyone looked wonderful. Thank you so very much to PorkRindsThinkAlike on Tumblr for being a special guest and helping me record this vlog! There were a few exceptions to everything being anime, however. Karl is a treasure and I am so happy that I was lucky enough to cross paths with him. Signups begin at 8:00pm on January 15th. Press were offered parking vouchers, so we were not concerned.
