Yesterday: Talking about cosplay ideas for when we can finally go back to comic conventions.
OH HELL NO
I don’t care if they’re limiting it to 10% of capacity and requiring masks. Knowing what we know now, December is going to be way too soon.
Honestly I’m not surprised that of the various LA-area cons it’s them that wants to jump the gun. (As the article points out, there’s no provision in the state’s reopening plan to re-allow conventions even in the least-restricted tier. Which LA County definitely isn’t in now, and I wouldn’t count on it getting there by December.) They’ve always struck me as kinda snake-oily.
Admittedly it’s been years from the worst, back when it was Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo and they had a reality show on SyFy, but still…
Planning a convention for the middle of winter during a pandemic when there’s no provision for actually *holding* a convention within public health regulations? Might be a new low.
