I hope to see more one piece cosplayers there!

Is there any Kollision con meet and greet by any chance?

One way or another I will be at Kollision-Con. Either helping out with it or just roaming around.
Either way probably in a test run version of the Woodney (Black Cat) Cosplay I'm working on.

Looks like I'll be there on Friday! Its possible, doubtful for Saturday night as well. Sunday is a no-go due to work and The Survivor Series. Look for a guy dressed as PeeWee Herman carrying a Globey. :)

More specifically it's straight West down North Ave., about an hour from Downtown and a few miles from the Geneva stop on the Metra Union Pacific West Line which the hotel will have a shuttle running to all weekend to pick up anyone who is staying there. :D

The Pheasant Run website has a map and driving directions. It's sorta due West of O'Hare (and a little South).

Same page has a downloadable map of the resort itself.

Does anyone know how registration goes there? Because we didn't get badges mailed (I pre-ordered mine when they were at ACEN 2011) and are the lines to get/pic-up already ordered badge long? Because I'm going to get there after classes on Friday and I really do not want to spend the entire night in line >_________>. O_o

Since it's a small con, I can't imagine the lines being too bad. I wasn't there last year though, so maybe someone who was can chime in.

Yeah, here's hoping the lines aren't long. I'll be there Friday-only, so here's hoping they're not bad. I'm pretty excited for the con, I'm just hoping the steep $30 price and it being a smaller con still makes it fun. As long as people are cosplaying, I'm confident it will be. Also if you catch me as PeeWee Herman, there will be a secret word. :D

Edit: I see the convention doesn't open until 5 PM on Friday? To any of those who have been there in the past, is it really worth the price of admission for Friday if the day doesn't last long?

Yeah I noticed that. I'm sort of glad for that since it allows me to stay on campus later so I can go to an extra credit event for one of my classes. XD
But STVO the con on Friday is open until 2AM so even if you wait in line for like an hour I'm sure you can still have a good time. :D

That is true but unfortunately I do have work in the AM as well, so it looks like I'll be skipping this year. I'm sure Kollision is cool, but it is smaller than ACen/WW/C2E2 and IMO $30 was already a big asking price. So anyone who was looking forward to seeing me there, I apologize. Now if there is a meetup to get pizza sometime that day or something, I might be up for it. :) Otherwise, there's always C2E2 and of course ACen! Hope this is fun for those going!

The Friday hours for Kollision had to be cut because there is another event using all of the space in the hotel until 5pm. You'll notice that hours are longer than normal on Sunday to try and make up for that. If another weekend had been available with better hours it would have been chosen but the choice was this weekend or skip a year. This is a one year thing that has been confirmed not to be happening again.

The reg prices had been posted up before the cut in hours so no one even thought about the Friday thing so thanks for pointing that out STVO. If you check the website you'll notice that the reg cost for Friday has been brought down to $20. I feel that that's a fair price as there is more being offered in the short amount of time on Friday than would be on a typical Sunday of most other cons.

Geneva stop on the Metra Union Pacific West Line which the hotel will have a shuttle running to all weekend to pick up anyone who is staying there. :D

Wait, I just noticed this. :o Is the shuttle free? Does it have a schedule that I can look up?

Also, this may be a bit late, but does anyone still need a room? One of my roommates had to drop out so I'm looking for one or two more to help split costs.

The shuttle is free. I don't believe they're running on a particular schedule you just need to call up the hotel when you're near or at the station and request that they send a shuttle.
