Glad to see someone else from Hawaii here. I've been to Kawaii Kon since 2011.

It's got a pretty casual atmosphere, but I don't recommend buying food at the convention center unless you're impatient and really hungry. The food is good, but a bit pricey for my taste. If you have time to burn, there's a 7-11 across the street. Be warned though that the line there will be longer. If you're looking for a nice coffee, there's a cosplay cafe in the same room as the manga library. This year, like last year, the dealer's room and artist's alley will be on the first floor of the convention center, but keep in mind that you still have to go to registration on the second floor. Much more room on the first floor anyway. If you made your own cosplay, please come to the table for the Hallway Cosplay Contest so you can get a nice prize. If you're at Kawaii Kon and have any questions, feel free to talk to the information desk located outside Registration, or you can speak to someone with a staff pass. My fellow staffers and I will be happy to assist you.

Just got back from getting my badge and program. That line was crazy! There were several lines and I had to ask around a few times just find the right one for me(A-K).


Misread the program. The Eir Aoi concert is this Saturday.

Kinda jealous. I was all set for Sakura Con in Seattle, then I finally got a transfer back home last month. Remembered KK and decided to go, then accidentally gave an employee this weekend off meaning I have to work it. /sigh. She probably is going to Kawaii Kon too. Oh well, there is always next year, and chances are I'm going to Expo this year anyway. Assuming I want to brave the crowds. Sad though considering I am working just about a block away from the convention center all weekend.

Anyway, hope everyone has fun! It seems like it is going to be another nice weekend out in paradise!

I should talk. The ballroom hall was standing room only for the Eir Aoi live event and I didn't even get chance to get in because I wasn't there an hour before it started. ETA: Did make it to her panel though. Turns out she's tried some of the local food and liked it. A locomoco(rice with a hamburger patty on it, topped with a a fried egg all covered with thick brown gravy) to be exact.

Noticed a lot of Kirito and Asuna couples. That, there are so many Deadpool cosplayers they could start their own convention.

Some more observations:

Wish I could post pictures but I'm such a primitive with no camera or phone with one.

Saw a lot cosplaying families even one that did a dead ringer for Gugure! Kokkuri-san.

Lots of love for RWBY. There was a showing at the theater section of the convention center with a fairly full seating. Over 1/2 the seats got emptied when they switched to something else. Magi I think.

Attended the closing ceremonies and besides most of the GoHs saying their thank yous and goodbys the kon broke another milestone number with 10,450 attendees!

ETA: Found a good pic to go with one of my comments.
