Who's all making it out to Kollision? This year, it's going to be at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare(right across the street from the Donald E. Stephens convention center)on November 15-17. Pre-Reg is currently $40 online or you can register at-con for $45 for the weekend. Rooms are just $99 a night and parking is $10 for the entire weekend, not per day.

Guests will be announced weekly on both the website and Facebook, so keep an eye on those.

Panel submissions should be opening in the next week, so if you have a panel you're interested in doing, make sure you let us know. All panelists receive 50% of one badge.

As we get closer to the con and we get details worked out, we'll be announcing all of our awesome events we have lined up for the weekend.

Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for weekly giveaways!

Keep checking the website for updated info!

I heard about the location change a few days ago. It would have been too hard for me to get out to St. Charles just for one day this year, but since it's closer I may go for Saturday. :D/>

I *hope* (crossed fingers) I can go this year. It's the weekend that's before the entire week of Thanksgiving--I hope school isn't going crazy then so I can go. If anything (depending on guests :D) I'll go at least on Saturday. Maybe Friday too :D. I hope school doesnt pile up during then >.<.

Hope to make it there again. I thank them for not making it Thanksgiving day weekend like last year (was not a fan of that decision.) I'm pushing to move into a new place :crosses fingers: so I may have to make sacrifices and this might be one. But I'm going to try!!!

Will not be volunteering at it this year, mainly due to the distance and having to be fully alert on the following Monday for work, although I might still try to make up to the con for the day.

It's between this and Domo Con for me. Leaning towards Domo because it's out of Rosemont and its nice to switch it up once in awhile. We'll see though.

I'm running two panels: Kpop Dance! and The Wonderful World of Crack Fanfiction. I'm also co-hosting a panel with my mom called How Not To Embarrass The Fandom.
Feel free to drop by if you're coming to the con! :D

I'm trying to get my Anime club and gaming club out there (hopefully as a school-sanctioned trip, but I'll settle for pretending we're all driving to Rosemont for unrelated reasons :P ). It's about a 4 hour drive for us, and we're waiting to make any kind of vehicle or hotel reservations until we see if we can get school funding to go...given the distance, I would have liked to have more details set in stone, but getting the go-ahead from the school (especially if it means a class excuse for that Friday) will hopefully be worth it.
That said, we're going to try to shoot for the magical free badge number for panels. We've submitted 3 so far I think- "Edo is the Internet" (Pre-industrial Japanese Art History and how it resembles/influenced internetty things), Gender in Cosplay (did this one at ACen- basically just what it sounds like, with a heavy dose of Crossplay tips and gender perception in fandom), and Photography for Cosplay (again, just what it says on the can- basic technical and compositional work using the kinds of cameras you'd carry to the con).

We have our panels submitted (and quasi-approved, I think)- We're doing 11, including the 3 mentioned above, plus 2 on tabletop rpgs, one on League of Legends, a 2-part cosplay makeup workshop, Wigs 101 (was at ACen), one on Studying Abroad, and one on starting and running a fandom club.
Descriptions of all these are up on our Facebook page (they were originally written so members of our group could decide which ones they wanted to join, so the wording may be a little odd). Let's Cheer! Cosplay

On the informal dance (rave) side of things, we have some AMAZING guests that have performed at some of the largest cons in the country and we have an International UK hardcore producer, who is actually from the UK! XD

I will post up flyers and more information as soon as it's finalized. Seriously, this is one anime con dance you DON'T want to miss.

If there's anyone reading this still and you have extra space I can help out. I'm in town for a month and would enjoy getting another con in this year, so if you got room, I got a body to fill it (mine, not a dead one.) Discuss with me via PM.

Failing that, I can always get up early and just drive there for a day.

We *might* have some extra space...since we're technically school clubs, I don't know if we're allowed to have unregistered hotel guests (the school policy is VERY specific about hitchhikers, actually, but I guess the administration isn't used to how con rooming goes). At the very least, one of the rooms is paid for out of my own pocket, so I don't think the school can tell me what to do with it...

So, PM me if you still need a room. Gender isn't an issue if it isn't for you. We're staying in a super cheap hotel off-site, so you can ride with us to the con site (or I think there might be a shuttle from the hotel, too). Cost would be like $10 a night or so.
