  1. Professional Cosplay Photos?

    Try Contacting Justin P. https://twitter.com/juspin92?lang=en , He is pretty talented at photography I'd say. He has a youtube and webpage. Here is his youtube page, https://www.youtube.com/c/justinpineda1792
  2. Guidebook 2017

    Drakenwitch, hopefully you will have hotel wifi maybe then you will be alright.
  3. What do the lonely people at ACen do?

    If you are alone I recommend going to the panels, you may find someone you have in common with. Or go to the formal dances or raves and dress up. Also try working at ACen, I made new friends this way too and get to talk to the representatives at the Industry, vendors and artists at ACen.
  4. Guidebook 2017

    Feyra, well I talked to my supervisor from the Exhibit Space Dept last year and they said we are not allowed to give info that has not been released by the ACen facebook / Twitter page (when they post it, then its official and only specific staff are allowed to do this). I know which date its going to be released but am not allowed to give info myself. But I did give a general time frame, its in April for sure during either of the last 2 weekends.
  5. Guidebook 2017

    Hello Cherry Wolf, regarding Guidebook, I am not allowed to release that kind of info but I can say it is going to be one of the Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays of April for sure. Does that help to make you less anxious? But its guaranteed that ACen will be using Guidebook this year.
  6. Introducing my younger brother to a bigger con.

    Show him all the cosplayers, there are going to be many more than at small cons. Second you should take them to the soap bubble and synergy (young people are only allowed for a certain time before curfew in Rosemont). Also you guys can learn to be samurai's at ACen they are having a demonstration (don't remember which day though) And show them the Exhibit Space / Dealers hall, we have over 200 vendors, artists and industry companies this year. And maybe bring them to panels, there will be a booklet with times provided.
  7. Looking for Feedback!

    I'd be fine with some non-Japan related content, avatar the last airbender & RWBY are awesome!!!
  8. All Cosplay Pajama Party

    But I mean it all depends on where and how many people can have at this pajama party (depends on if space you have will be big or small).
  9. All Cosplay Pajama Party

    Hey Nana, this would be very cool to have and to go to. I'd be interested :) but would it be possible for you to create a Facebook event page (people are really active on Facebook when it comes to ACen and its been pretty quiet on the ACen forum)? I could share it to the ACen and cosplay facebook groups I'm a part of.
  10. Not sure were your gathering is?

    Yeah this will make attendees time at ACen a lot easier, awesome idea!!!

    Hey Madeline, I would tell you that this panel is a great idea, but you should write this on the ACen facebook groups, people would answer within minutes then, than instead of days. But I have a suggestion, if you guys have a chance during the panel, maybe there should be some games to play, like truth or dare (I am just creating stuff on the top of my mind and most stuff I'd think of are here already or covered by other panels.)
  12. Food Truck Guest Suggestion

    Hey KaminariOctopi, Okamoto Kitchen may may not be able to come to Chicago because I had a really long conversation with them and they need to make sure all their ingredients are fresh and they dont know if they can get all the ingredients in the Chicago land area. They told me Mitsuwa is one of the stops in Arlington Heights but the other ingredients would be a bit more difficult to get. Last year I loved Ms. Tittles cupcakes, they were really worth it for the price (she had the puddings which were gourmet quality!!!) .
  13. Panelist Badges vs. Attendee Badges

    Yeah Magishine is right. The only badges that are truely different are the Staff badges and maybe the Exhibitor / artists badges. My staff badge was vertical and not horizontal last year and it had a different design comparing to the attendees badges.
  14. Jerry Jewell and/or Eric Vale

    There will be a possibility that we are getting some american actors and musicians can't say more or how many lol
  15. How Much Should I Save?

    If you live at least 5-10 minutes away you will save a lot!!! I didn't need to use a hotel for ACen 2016 so I had lot more spending money for Exhibit Hall LOL Also bring a cooler bag too with food in your car, saved a lot of money there!!!
  16. Yuri on Ice 2017

    Hey Taaarte, I would recommend doing Saturday Morning maybe. I am not going to be able to cosplay because I will be working at ACen, but from past experience lot of people work and go to grade-school/high-school/University on Friday. Saturday you would have so many Yuri on Ice Fans available. But Saturday wouldn't work too well because of the Soap Bubble, masquerade and the symphony that happen at that time.
  17. Registration for 2017 Masquerade

    Hello Ambi, I would like to let you know that Anime central posts updates on any news they have. So if you follow twitter or Facebook the info on the Masquerade will pop up there. I have Anime Central Android phone noitfications turned on and I am able to see if any new info is released by them. But for sure it will be in January.
  18. Gatherings locations Open Jan 1st 2017

    It be cool to see a Kantai Collection Meetup, but sadly I'm on Exhbit Space Staff duty lol. Maybe someone can initiate it and I would come to see how it is doing + take some photos :D
  19. Hey everyone, I just wanted to start a conversation on working at ACen during the Con. This month I have applied to work at ACen and I am having the opportunity to work in Video Programming or Exhibit Space, these are open to me currently. I have the choice of either but I would like some details what what actually happens in these departments, such as what task are being done, what attire is allowed (Stephanie told me certain departments have to wear business casual while others can wear whatever), is it simple or difficult, and if any of you have done these, then what was your experience in these departments, and etc. if I missed anything. Anyone can answer to this but would be great if some current or past staff member would give a bit of info and/or tips. I would like to figure out which would be my forte. Also will I receive instructions ahead of the time of what are my tasks, how to get my badge to work there, apply to get badges for 2 other individuals and other info that is needed? Hope to heard from many of you and also hope to see any of you at ACen 2016.
  20. Hey Master Blaster, it was awesome. I was able to meet new people. Have fun and help out with the Convention and the Exhbit Space area a lot. I am for sure working in my designated department again for sure. There is a great balance between work and fun. Also I hope to see some familiar faces there too. I wasn't able to answer before because I had to get my forum password reset for me.
  21. Weather for ACen 2016!

    Chicago weather is crazy weather, its better cold because the inside of ACen is always too warm lol!!!
  22. Dragonball Z 2016

    I will not be able to cosplay because I will be working in at ACen but It be cool if some will do this type of cosplay lol!!!
  23. Profile Pic

    Same it tells me to contact admin
  24. Smash Tournament

    Nothing so far in info but for sure you can while your at ACen!!! Just wait until they announce it!!!
  25. Other Cons this year? (Doesn't have to be anime)

    Hi Thanks for writing, I appreciate your answer because any advice is great, and also how do I deal with the rude or creeps? I will be a staff member so I will have less issues maybe but I need to give advice on what my friends I'm bring should do if they run into them.
