I like the concept, but there's basically no information on the website. Is there any way to apply to run a panel or anything? November's not very far off.

I live near Philly -- I'd almost definitely go if I knew a little more about it and could find a place to stay. (And I'd happily volunteer to help with your panel!)

Yes, unfortunately they are still working on the website... Their Facebook group has the most information. I asked about the panel, but she said there would be more information soon. The second there is additional information anywhere I'll update this thread.

Thanks for posting in the other Pittsburgh meet-up thread--I hadn't realized that there were so many of us around, and I hadn't heard of KuroKiiro before. (I had heard of Tekkoshocon of course!)

I will definitely look this up!

Went to the previous one by chance since my friend wanted to go. It wasn't so hot because of the place they had didn't have that much room, and it was pretty much
"HEY EVERYONE WALK IN SINGLE FILE LINES AND FOLLOW THESE ARROWS LOL."

Dunno if I'd be going again unless somebody wants to drag me along (can't drive), but I'm sure nobody wants an annoying little souso following them the whole time.
:oops:

Awww~~ ♥
Only if you guys want to... I'm not a terribly interesting person to be around.
I could definitely help out as long as I don't have to go speaking or anything like that.
*deadweight* xD

As for what I was wearing-- it was just some boring old normal clothes, so I doubt I was that memorable. We only went for one day and hung out at the gaming room 70% of the time.
:lol:

I was sitting right there in one of the chairs the majority of the time.
There wasn't a lot of people though, so it couldn't been a different moment.

I can... vaguely remember you then. xD
It was one of those white+black ones right?
I was honestly pretty much just sitting there hogging space and not really paying attention to anything.
:coy:

Oh Hep~
You were totally the coolest person at that booth if I remember correctly.
:lol:

@Evyon
That's hilarious. Being soooo close and yet not even knowing each other existed. LOL
Do you have a messenger type program like MSN or anything? Then we can just chat there if we want to work something out later/get to know each other more or something so it wouldn't be as awkward.

Might still see if I can go for a bit, but I doubt for a long time as it's NaNoWriMo! It'd be a great excuse to dress up in kimono and swing by to see your panel, though. Keep us updated!

*cheers you on*

Oops sorry. Haven't checked in with this thread for a while.
I totally forgot that Kuro was so close!

I still have no cash/transportation so I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have to pass.

I am sending thoughts of luck your way! The satin bathrobes ("I paid $150 for it, so I know it's authentic") are my personal nemesis.
