Tulsa, OK based anime convention Tokyo in Tulsa is currently taking place this weekend, and while most people there are probably having a great time, one group of people, the artists and vendors, really aren’t. You see, for the event’s twelfth convention they’ve decided to host their artist alley and vendors in a rather unconventional location: a former Hobby Lobby a nine minute drive away from most of the con.
HEADS UP TO THOSE ATTENDING @tokyointulsa!!! They really haven’t made it very well known but the artist alley this year is going to be in a SEPARATE BUILDING. Please, if you want to support us indie artists, take the time to ride the shuttle or directly drive to the Hobby Lobby pic.twitter.com/5EqGkITmRT

They put the artist alley and vendors a nine minute drive away in a former Hobby Lobby. Just begin to process that.

Also, someone made this and added it to the group! Just incase you or any of your followers arent in the group and dont know that EVERYTHING is spread out, the artists are just the farthest away. 😓 pic.twitter.com/Oz2h7ZiEgz

And even with the best of intentions, I really just question the competence of any con staff that made this particular call.
