I’ve had a lot of people asking me, “So what happened to you at Otakon?” Finni and I have been quietly mentioning some of the incident with the staff we had this year, but still keeping it hushed since we were hoping to see it resolved internally and professionally… but it…
Otakon has a long history of questionable treatment of artists, and I was sad to see something like this happen to my friends Finni and Zimmay. If you are an artist that has had a bad experience with Otakon’s AA staff, please, this is the time to speak up to Otakorp to try and change this cycle of unprofessional administration. And if you are an artist that plans to go to Otakon in the future, I highly suggest you read their accounts and beware the possible trouble you might encounter.
I am very saddened that this experience had to stain the wonderful weekend that I had at Otakon. I truly did have a lot of fun and would like to return next year, but I question continuing to support an Alley that treats its artists this way.
