Update (5/9): And it looks like Angry Goat Productions has canceled these events. The original article remains below.
One of the weirder stories to follow in the con scene this year has been the saga of Angry Goat Productions. They first came to our attention when a supposed scam warning started floating around Facebook about the Sailor Moon themed events at something Angry Goat was planning called Cosplay Unplugged Los Angeles (CULA). While we managed to confirm that this whole thing wasn’t so much a scam as it was an extremely poorly mismanaged company, as time went by it appeared that the events were cancelled.
We apparently were wrong though.
Over the last couple of weeks, Angry Goat Productions has launched a new event website, added new information to their company site, and launched a new Facebook event for “LA Moonfest.” The event is scheduled for the same weekend CULA originally occupied (May 13-14), though at a new venue — the Doubletree Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.
