Baystuck, Calm. Honk a clown horn. Relax. There will be staff at con in non-badged areas where you can ask where it is. That, and the con has info desks that can point you the right way. as soon as its confirmed, I will take photos and google map the place JUST FOR YOU!

I definitely intend to go as Kanaya. I'm not sure I'll be able to help with organizing this year, but I'm interested in attending, at least.

Bumping this!

I should be attending as the Condesce, as usual.

I won't be able to help much with the gathering itself (that costume is slightly hellish to wear), but if you need any behind-the-scenes help prior to the con, I can see what I can do. Do you want me to put out some calls for volunteers on tumblr? I don't know how many I can get you, but I can at least try, and it's always good to advertise for the positions you need.

Also, stay tuned for Dinnerstuck info. I'm trying to figure out some other scheduling things before I get anything narrowed down, but it's looking like it'll be Saturday night, cap of 20 people, possibly at the Old Spaghetti Factory. I'm also considering doing an informal Barstuck event for those 21+, possibly on Friday night, if I'm not busy

Yes, Please Advertise. I have been sending out posts on the homestuck, homestuck gathering, and Fanime tags on Tumblr, and I don't know if tumblr just flat out hates me, or nobody notices me (I think this, but meh).

Wow I can't believe no one is signing up for this! How was the turn out last year?

I helped moderate 2 years ago so if you need people tjimmy to help you control the crowd I can help.

The turnout was pretty huge last year. I know that a lot of the fandom (or at least the very active parts) have dropped off due to all the hiatuses, but it's still surprising that no one is posting in this thread or really even talking about the gathering on tumblr (the only social media I have). I have a feeling it'll still be a large gathering this year, but it may not have the same strength of fandom as it has in previous years, and it'll be mostly newer fans and the most hardcore of fans. (Though, with the comic returning on Monday there might be some nostalgia from people who used to be into it, but I think a lot of people have moved on to other fandoms -- I'm mostly just here because I want an excuse to wear all my elaborate HS cosplays, haha)

I'll advertise this weekend that y'all need some help with this gathering. Hopefully I can get some people who are interested, or at least get it boosted around tumblr a little.

I saw your post on tumblr. I'll boost it up and call for people.

I think the problem you were having is that new blogs don't show up in the tags until a certain amount of time or a certain number of posts, so no one was seeing your posts. Hopefully my reblog will help, since I have a number of HS cosplayer followers from the area.

Hi! This will be my first time at Fanime con and I am planning to dress up as a version of God-Tier Rose (it's slightly AUish), so I'd love to come to this meetup.

I'm happy to help on the day of, if given some guidance (because, again, first-timer). I would also be down for a Barstuck - I'm 29, and feel like an epic old fogey in the fandom, so I'd love to connect to other adult fans!

I'd be happy to reblog your Tumblr post if I have a URL or username. I also shared your video on Reddit's Homestuck sub.

:)

Hey everybody! I'm Kaiser, and if this gathering is still happening (which I really hope it is), I wouldn't mind lending a hand if you need me to. I'm not a con master my any means, but this isn't my first time around. This will be my fifth time attending a con (and I've had at least one Homestuck cosplay with me every time!) I've attended multiple Homestuck gatherings, so I've seen chaos and I've seen organization. My brother and I are both willing to assist in keeping things together. I can be most easily contacted on tumblr ( dogkaiser.tumblr.com ) , and my brother can also be reached on tumblr ( sunwitchchosen.tumblr.com ). I'm sending you an email as well. Thanks for putting yourself out there for this gathering!

(Oh and a suggestion? In the video you said that you wanted to make sure everyone knew where the gathering was going to be held, but I didn't attend Fanime last year, so I'm not all that sure where I would go. I'm sure a lot of other con attenders may not have attended last year either, so that might result in a lot of people being lost. I would state exactly where it's going to be held in the main post here. cx )

Dinnerstuck info is up. If you are interested, PM me here or on tumblr. It's a bit tentative in terms of time, but it will be Saturday evening. It is always a super chill event, and I hope for a good turnout this year. :]

I was thinking Barstuck for Friday evening, though I still haven't decided if I want to sell at the Swap Meet or if I want to enter the karaoke contest, and that decision will determine whether Barstuck happens or not. I could always try for Sudnay night, but I'm usually so busy that night and tired that I don't know if I want to bother. Even if I don't have Barstuck, you're always welcome to come to Dinnerstuck. There are a few regulars there (including myself) who are mid twenties and older, and even the younger folks tend to be fairly mature. As I've said, it's pretty chill.

(Oh and a suggestion? In the video you said that you wanted to make sure everyone knew where the gathering was going to be held, but I didn't attend Fanime last year, so I'm not all that sure where I would go. I'm sure a lot of other con attenders may not have attended last year either, so that might result in a lot of people being lost. I would state exactly where it's going to be held in the main post here. cx )
The gathering is always at Cesar Chavez park, directly across the street from the Marriott side of the convention center, in the middle of Market street. It's usually toward the middle of the park, but it should be pretty obvious from the huge crowd of people in grey paint and horns. :]

Here's a map if you aren't familiar with the area. It's a very short walk.

Do you want me to boost the tumblr post again? Not sure it did much last time, but I can try.

Thank you! Yeah, I'm far from familiar with the area. I actually live in lil' old Merced. The map will come in handy!

Hey. I just got really interested into Homestuck in the past month (April), but I've this is my third year in a row that I'm going to Fanime. I didn't know about the Homestuck gathering, let alone Homestuck, last year; but I really want to participate in something Homestuck related. I've been working on my John costume since Saturday. If you are still looking for a John, I'm available all weekend! If not, I'd like to help out anyways.
P.S Will do Can Town. Sounds super awesome!

Edit: I forgot to mention that my litttle brother is going with me too, and he's going to be Dave (we're both god tier); I'll ask him if he'd like to help too later today.
