That's a little too obvious. Maybe pick some off the wall question about culture/community/brand names that we know they can't answer.

Or if you're really ballsy pick any of the number of mistakes they're bound to make and call them out on it.

No bad cosplay thread? Let's go.

Fat people are almost always ita, no matter how good the outfit is in theory. I don't mean chubby lolitas, but the ones who are 300+lbs. I don't care how well your clothing fits. I don't care if you are well accessorized and have good hair and makeup. If you're that fat, the proportions look off, fat skews people's features, the silhouette is bad, you're ita.

i don't think making fun of lgbt and autism is the pinnacle of all humor like so many chicks on here do. i think its boring and tasteless and id never wanna befriend someone negative like that..
also not all the girls on here are pure salt and negativity. i get why people think so bc this board can seem quite pissy at times but ive met a couple girls who are actually pretty nice and reasonable.
>>
Girls getting their knickers in a twist over being told "it looks like a costume" by a complete stranger is ridiculous (especially if you're wearing OTT).
Just chill, who cares if some random person thinks you look retarded dressed like that? It sucks, but you do you, and we have to admit that we are indeed dressed "weird".
Though, having a relative or significant other thinking that is a whole other matter. And it would be perfectly reasonable to be upset.

>>9664039
I agree. I'm autistic and lesbian and always poke fun at myself and don't mind the autism/"dyke!" jokes at all, in fact i do them myself, but some people reaaaally take it too far. People legit using "autism1!!" or "faggot xD" as an actual insult make me cringe (same for people thinking that spouting "nigger"/"jew"/... is comedy gold). They have no idea of what they're going on about and look like absolute imbeciles trying to be kool kidz.

I completely understand why this board is seen as a salt mine full of jealous and bitter girls too, but i've talked with some nice anons and there were fun/nice threads i participated in.

Fwiw most of the autism and lgbt jokes are self deferential, but it’s hard to know on an individual basis. Plenty of the gay male crowd likes to say stuff like “ugh fucking gays”

I'd honestly love to work at one, even at just a con, to see what it's like, but I have no idea how to go about that...
>>
>>9663823
I’m >>9663124 and I’ve done some research. Most con cafes have applications for volunteers and or paid workers. You may need a resume of relevant skills, and you may or may not need to provide your own outfit. You will also want nice photos in normal clothes and maid clothes if possible, so they can see what you look like.
>>
>>9663444
Hell, I'd take that over sloppy ass leggings and a shitty hipster print tshirt. I get that they've got to clean kitty litter and stuff, but damn even a cute apron would go a long way with that.

>>9663250
The "kiddo" type is ideal to me. I think the best maid is friendly and bubbly and cute without being cringy. As a maid I really try not to cross the line from kawaii/moe to cringe by using it as an accent rather than a personality. I also generally don't say "goshujin-sama" or "master" but instead try to treat customers with respect and put a lot of attention into their interests and conversations, so they get the service without the awkwardness.

>>9663438
Pretty maids are a sign of a good cafe. Pretty much all young women can be attractive as long as they are well groomed and aren't fatties. Plus you can wear tons of makeup and a wig and nobody cares. Race doesn't matter as long as everybody looks polished, but I think asian girls are generally more interested in maid cafes so you end up with more of them.

>>9662454
Idols and maid cafes are pretty closely tied in Japan, especially with maids like Hitomi and her performing group. It's also nice to have performances by talent or the maids themselves at a cafe. It's a nice break from work for me, and I think the customers like having a new activity.

Does anyone have advice as to what to do if you get a dead/boring customer? Like people who don't want to play games or chat, serial smartphone users, or unhappy boyfriends who got dragged along and refuse to have fun.
>>
>>9664043
Generally speaking, for a dead customer i give them what they really want. If they’re shy or kinda grumpy I’ll play with it a little bit but if the response is very poor just respect their space. Give the same quality service, be cute, etc.

Everyone likes to be treated well and respected, so just address them directly and thank them for coming by!

So, just came back from a con where someone interrupted a whole photoshoot to propose to their partner while in-character. Personally I found it rude and cringey AF, but what's you guys' general opinion on doing things like that? For it, against it? Think it's cute or think it's stupid?

Agreed. I also hate the trend of fake proposing, especially from YoI fujoshits. It's not as funny/cute as people think it is and all it does is attract a crowd that blocks walkways.

My friends got engaged at a photoshoot. The one checked with the people running it beforehand and got permission to do it towards the end. I was worried it would be cringey, but it was actually really nice and sweet.
>>
>>9664035
That's cute though, you didn't interrupt anyone else's activities it seems

>>9664048
I think what makes things the most cringey is doing it without warning. the person proposing literally tells the other cosplayers to move out of the way and gestures a pushing motion with his arms. I think getting the okay from people beforehand might even make it seem more special because everyone will be looking and expecting, plus get better shots!
>>
>>9663965
If you propose at a con that’s just as bad as doing it at a crowded mall or sporting event. Shoots and small groups are fine

I'm new to making costumes so I have some questions. Here are some things I need some advice on for a Roadhog cosplay I'm planning on doing.

What can I do for the metal on his shoes, especially the horn?

What do I need for the armor on his right arm?

Should I buy the mask from Taobao?

What kind of paint should I use if I wanted to paint a life vest black for his armor? I heard that life vests expand when wet.
>>
>>9663939
I'm going to be brutally honest and say that unless you're willing to pour a lot of time and money and effort into this, it's not going to turn out good. Roadhog is a bit too much for the beginner.

dunno but if you cant make a simple armor piece you're probably safer to stick with buying the mask yes

>What kind of paint should I use if I wanted to paint a life vest black for his armor?
don't bother painting a messy lifevest, try finding a suitable military vest instead (cgl is not allowing me to link jackshit atm, but find it on sites such as ebay, aliexpress with some of the tags: military vest chest rig airsoft outdoor)
