I've talked it over with my two oh-so-lovely assistants, and we've determined that color-coded stickers will probably be the most effective way of helping people find their desired partners. The current plan is each guest (after verifying their age) will be asked to take a colored sticker that corresponds with what they're looking for. The stickers will be as follows:

Blue - Looking for a male
Pink/Red - Looking for a female
Yellow - Looking for a male and/or female
Green - Not interested

These colors are likely to change, as I cannot confirm whether or not Wal-Mart will have sticker packs in those particular colors.

More details will be released as soon as I have them for you.


Like the people who gave us cake (and then left one of their friends behind, lawl) and offered us beverages?

I also don't think we have to worry so much about checking IDs/age. Remember the wrist bands from last year? They could be doing that again this year. And those were checked at the door by a staff member/volunteer, if I'm not mistaken. (I only went to one 18 and up panel at AZ, I believe...)

Also, I think Walmart might/should have stickers of those colors. They're usually the kind that people buy/use for garage sales (if they're the small circle stickers that you're talking about).

Yeah, if they're doing it the same way it was done last year we won't have a problem.

Oh what an 18+ panel that was though, eh?

What about name tags? You know the "Hello My Name is__________". Five bucks at Walmart. It might help to overcome shyness/having to introduce yourself 329048324 times.

I will be wearing the HELL out of that blue sticker!
I think that Hello tags could work, but at the same time be a tad tacky. Maybe we could try some more novel way of identification?

That seems a little counter-intuitive. The best way to overcome that shyness is to be forced to initiate conversation.

I agree, I'm sure we can come up with some way to break the ice.
Maybe a fandom game? We try to figure out what people are fans off to break the ice

*sigh* due to my birthday as of this posting, I might bow out of going to this yet again. lol

I doubt anyone would be close to my age group, and I don't want to be the "creepy old guy". lol

Why do I picture you as looking like Red?
Anyway, still planing on going,though I don't know why. I suppose I'm just masochistic enough to try and fail.

This sounds like fun! Even if you don't find anyone, it will be a great way to meet new friends. =)
I will definitely be in attendance.

From seeing that my predictions from the Ichibancon panel were completely correct.
I get the feeling that this will be pretty much the same.
