Lolitas, Cosplayers, and Con-goers in general:
How do you feel about LARPers in cons? People coming in their LARP kit, that is?
38 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Now it's not discrimination but hate based on good empirical evidence on LARPers?
Is there some drama I missed?
I dislike larpers that shove their rp on online forums, which I think happens less now or something cause I never see it anymore, but now the not often refrain of 'fucking larpers' is just a joke.
Naw. In some of the more tryhard LARP circles I know there's a running gag where you hate on LARPers.
It's LARPers LARPing they hate LARPers, because Jesus Christ have you seen some of the community?

They're terrible!
as shitty as the people who show up as stormtroopers, Marvel/DC, wanna-be military airsofters. They're lame.
Are you American?

I mean...it IS just a piece of plastic, anon. In no universe is it going to be remotely worth $560.
damn anon you'd really pay $560 unshipped for a keychain...
It's Economics 101. It's all about perceived value. We have seen plenty of instances of bidding wars on Yahoo auctions for limited can badges and straps that go into four figures.

That being said I highly doubt this is anywhere near the actual going price of this item.
Weirdly specific question, but does anyone have one of these Ita Maker smartphone purses?

I want a smaller one for the character I'm planning atm, and most of the merch is smaller buttons and charms. I have a charm coming that measures about 3 inches. On the website, the purse is listed as 9 cm or about 3.5 inches wide.

Basically I'm wondering, do you think a 3 inch piece of flat merch would fit in either of the windows, or are they too small? I'd rather have a tight fit than a bunch of extra space to fill, but if it won't fit the biggest charm then I don't want to bother buying it.
It's not about whether or not it's worth specifically $560, it's dismissing an expensive price for merch bc it's 'just a piece of plastic'.

Now that net neutrality is ded, how will it affect the online American cosplay and jfash/lolita comm?

Retard alert

the govt wont be able to just step back in. they would have to bust the monopolies. its easier to just keep net neutrality as it is.
they didn't abandon their monopoly. its was reorganized. I don't know how much big phone pays you but this is different. the people against net neutrality don't know how the internet works.
att is bell telephone and I believe tw leased from bell. so ma bell is reorganizing again. everyone read my last post.
japan isn't our all around ally. we have been arguing with them since George bush sr. they are an ally against china.
all American universitys have a firewall, filter, and vpn(but not on all computers). the universities/public libraries were sued for more open internet.
niconico will be one of the first sites limited. the old japan sites were limited. something about nodes.
the usa didn't need neutrality until about 17 yrs ago. Australians have to use usa sites cause of net neutrality. there is a reason why you guys don't have a 4chan and reddit.

yeah, I can see her cottage cheese ass more than she wants me to
She’s pretty much a nobody, but she’s one of those girls who thought she was the IRL Sakura and that all the other girls cosplaying Sakura were copying her. There was this German Sakura cosplayer that she picked on in particular, saying that the girl was copying her “bride Sakura” idea or “photo shoot of Sakura by lake” idea. She went so far to say that this girl was “bullying” her so that she could send her followers to spam comment on the German girls pictures and tell her to delete her stuff, stop copying, etc. All the stuff that she claimed were being copied were super generic and also not very similar at all, either. Her mailbox got broken into and she started saying that the German girl living in GERMANY must have somehow broken into it to steal her circle lens order. Basically crazy paranoid stuff like that; she made statuses about this German cosplayer every day for almost a year and a half before deleting her Facebook.

I hear about cosplayers hooking up and doing lewd shit at conventions all the time. Does anyone have any interesting experiences?

Mine is probably mild compared to some.

>Its nighttime and the kiddies have gone to bed
>Walking around the convention with a remote-control bullet vibe inside of me
>Let my boyfriend control the remote

Sounds more like roastie cope desu
Sucked my bf at the time off on a semi remote balcony behind the con center. A cop-panty cosplayer came around the corner just as he was coming, she either didn't notice or pretended not to. He proceeded to finger me even though we'd almost been caught...

>she either didn't notice or pretended not to.

Honesty I'd probably just pretend I didn't notice too
Confronting or acknowledging that would just be awkward as fuck
I got drunk and made out with someone while I was in a magical girl cosplay. I actually think she had been buying the drinks, and my memory is really hazy but people while we were at a panel were accusing her of taking advantage of me.
in there defense I have been in rooms where the lock click isn't that loud.
anyone would be interested.

Post fursuit/mascot pics, questions, stories and anything else fursuit related.

Frequently asked questions:
>How much is a new suit?
Expect to pay at least 2k for a fullsuit commission, 3k+ for something padded, and higher for a realistic suit. Heads typically go for 400-1k, partials 900-1.5k.

Hey there, I'm new to this board relatively and new to overall Cosplay/anime wear thing. I have a question regarding anime themed glasses frames and putting prescription lenses in them.

I plan to buy some Madoka Magica themed frames because it's my favorite show, and yes they're expensive but my ones currently are absolutely trashed and I'm interested. I'll post a picture of the frames in question and link them as well, but my question is basically where would I go to put prescription lenses in them here in the USA? The japanese prescription site and how to do it all is a bit over my head as I dont speak the language.

link: https://eyemirror.jp/madoka-magica/

tl;dr: Prescription lenses in Anime themed frames? How and where should I get them done at?
Buy them and take them to any optometrist you’d normally go to. I don’t buy fandom frames, but sometimes I buy cute frames from LenseCrafters and take them to my loca doctor that’s in my insurance network because he has a terrible selection. It’s never been an issue before.
Most places will do it, the issue isn’t where but the cost. Good luck!
The problem with these anime themed glasses frames.... if they're plastic, they're easily breakable. $151 down the drain.

If you can get wire frames, do that. I spent so much of my younger school days with perpetually broken plastic framed glasses I swore them off when I got my first metal / wire frames. And they're not broken once.
That sucks anon, but not all plastic frames are created equal. Some are flexible/shock absorbing and just personally I've never snapped a pair.

Seconding going to your usual optometrist who gets your prescription, or as other anons have suggested whichever optometrist is the least costly. If you could understand the website then getting your prescription first and then filling it in would be an option but oh well.

Interestingly, even though those frames aren't the cheapest, they're still much cheaper than any frames in my country because of the monopoly a certain company has over glasses. I like getting glasses from Asia because they're cheaper and always have nose pads for my tiny flat nose.
google for "akujinscos"
he does a bunch of custom glasses. could probably shoot him a message to see if he'll do custom ones.
