/ouG/ - Boystyle General: Talking to objects edition

No.9715254 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Old thread hit image cap and is almost at bump limit >>9601536

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle:

>Shopping spreadsheet

>Buttcape-sensei's shopping guide (mentions which brands/shops have men's or custom sizes):

>Blogs for current boystyle releases, news, and info

Otakorp (Otakon Convention) is close to bankrupt.

No.9680530 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Otakorp puts on Otakon, an anime convention now in DC.
Budget meeting this month to finalize a $ 500,000 loan plan. Many mistakes that basic forsight could have avoided thru better leadership have cost Otakorp over a million dollars.
Once the outstanding debts Otakorp has are paid, they're so far in the red right now that they need pre reg to open early (december) and do well and/or get the $ 500,000 loan just to exist past Otakon Vegas. Otakon Vegas has cost Otakorp over a $ 100K a year, but bad staffers wouldn't let it die before now. This was a passion project that violated the ethical and legal requirements to be on a Non Profit Board.
Even with the loan, if Otakon DC 2018 does not seriously out perform Otakon 2017 membership wise, Otakorp will be in the same situation it's in now also dealing with loan payments and an inability to take a second loan and will bankrupt. It's going to take an eight thousand membership spike from the 2017 con turn out to save Otakon.

Why am I putting this here? The Board and the Staff have lengthy discussions about the problem. There are years of issues, inquiries, ect into some of the bad decisions that continued. The board and voting members debated, but those with the most pull always got their way. They have failed the attendees and as a non profit answer to them. If Otakon is a convention you hit up, things are looking really bad. They have an obligation to be more transparent and work to prevent the mess they've created from fully imploding. Even writing this, I've betrayed them but honored the membership.

Otakon attendees, I'm sure some of you will read this. Let it spread like wild fire. I can't talk on this beyond anonymously or the powers that be at Otakorp will use ties they have with other conventions I also work to black list me from doing what I love. They had huge rainy day funds they tore thru, and those funds were from attendees.

Those are the basics, but there is much more comprehensive info in the doc, so please, please read it!
