>premier pass
I'm currently on the fence trying to decide if I should go for the premier this time or not. This will be my third year at AX, and skipping the lines sounds amazing, but $475 is pretty steep.
Do you have any experience with the rates and booking that premier pass owners get with hotels? I have a friend considering going next year, and a hotel might be fun. Is the "premier rate" for hotels actually a decent discount, or is it a joke like 10% off?
First AX.
First time rooming with randoms and one of them was really chill. I'll get to the other two below.
Met a really cute Ciri cosplayer and we hit it off, we still talk online.
Got a ton of new art
Managed to score some 151 rum which I can't buy where I'm from
JoJo's screening.
Being fat, 320lbs to be exact.
My roommate brought his guns to the hotel.
My other roommate slept 18 hours a day so I couldn't host a room party.
Met a couple girls that offered to sleep with me for drinks, they were 16.
Got lost in some tent city in an industrial area while trying to find a party off site.
And this is the worst of it. Saturday night I went to the JW Marriot at around 2 am to meet some people. They had this weird guy with them who had a fully nude Darkness body pillow. He had this creepy grin on as he tried to force him self on every girl in the circle we had formed. I don't know why I complimented him on the fucking thing (MDMA?) but that made us best friends in his mind. We were close enough apparently for him to tell me how much he hated his roommates (not at the con with him) and his fantasies about killing them. That's when I left

I love how ironic it is that this post immediately got replies that were also from the Desucon defense force. You can like something and also want it to improve by pointing out what you feel can be improved, but obviously that's too hard to grasp.

The budget thing isn't "a rumor from the ass", maybe do your research before blindly defending whatever it is you feel to need to defend.
>The budget thing isn't "a rumor from the ass", maybe do your research before blindly defending whatever it is you feel to need to defend.
Oh yes believing anything on an anonymous image board supplying absolutely no sources is not blind faith at all anon

the afterparty team walking on the stage during the opening ceremony to tell about the event is not proof lmao
What are you on about? It's one thing if you don't follow Desucon's twitter or just didn't pay attention/ don't remember the tweet, but sometime during the organizing of a previous years event (can't remember wether is was Frostbite or summer Desu) Desucon retweeted a tweet by the afterparty organizer mentioning that they got given a 5000 euro budget for the afterparty. It's possible that the tweet got deleted because after a quick search I couldn't find it (then again twitter has the most rubbish search I've ever encountered), but when it was tweeted I even had a talk with about it with others because we found it a weird thing to point out because no other parts of the budget have been publicly mentioned before.
It's actually a bit silly to defend Desucon that hard if you aren't even that familiar with them? Not to mention that if you think there's nothing wrong with having an afterparty then obviously you wouldn't be bothered about them having a high budget, so why the need to desperately claim that it's bullshit? In the first place I don't really understand why so many people here feel the need to latch onto any negative comment (or "negative" in this case) toward Desucon when literally any other con can be shat on with no repercussion. Just let people complain if they feel like it, or at least offer some proof yourself why their complaints are baseless if you're so intent on trying to prove a point.
I'm not disagreeing with what you say but the criticism involving lectures is often rather vague and I don't think anyone gets anything out of that.

"The lectures were not as good as they should've been" doesn't say awfully lot but dropping specific examples and elaborating on them helps. It's a lot easier to take feedback if you actually understand what the feedback is about.
Idk but that doesn't really sound too high so do you have any sources how much other cons budget for them? You have absolutely nothing to back up your claims.

The summer Paris meet was small but very successful, now it’s time for the Winter Chicago meet.
Are you planning to attend?

The comm-wide parapara project was also a success, the next one is currently being planned.

OfficeKiko x Esperanza boots started an old school gal nostalgia revival, followed by an event in Shibuya 109, now OK is doing a denim collaboration that is also inspired by gal/90’s fashion.
Did you buy the boots yet? Are you interested in the new denim

It also seems as though gyaru is having a small revival in the western community, are you excited or annoyed with all of the newbies?

Any winter meets planned locally? If so, are you/your circle/comm doing anything special for the holidays?

Maybe you should. That might be a good idea. If she doesn't like it oh well better than coming on here and not being direct only to continue to see her look like that. We all could learn to take constructive criticism and also dish it out. Only way you'll grow.
Seriously! It was kind of sad at first but now it's just annoying.
Oh.. that's the chick with the gyarusa. You might want to tell her and no one in her group won't tell her either, their makeup is kind of bad too... 109 degrees gyarusa

I have a friend who has nothing but meta in her closet cause shes over 6 ft and just a very large person all over, not fat but just bigger all over. I've looked through her closet before and all her pieces were really nice.
What the fuck does the size of you friend have to do with this conversation? I read to the end fully expecting your 6ft friend to have some further meaning to this discussion but instead you betray me like this
Cause meta is the real big girl brand.
Did Meta post about the resold accessories saying “look at these things we made by hand”?

I've worn it to a few jobs before. The place I'm at right now would be totally fine with it, I've just been too lazy and don't have much that works for daily wear anymore. Sold all of my sweet and basically have to start over from scratch lmfao rip.

The places I've worked at that allow it though are creative jobs ie costume shops and fashion stores, so. I do hear of some lolitas who wear really toned down lolita to company meetings etc but you don't hear of it very often.
Imagine being this mad about other people’s lives. If a man berates you, you owe him nothing. She’s probably prepping to leave.
Enjoy being undesirable
Leave him as soon as you can. A man embarrassed to be seen with you doesn’t deserve you. You have to treat your presence as a privilege, not a right.
But also affairs are bad, fix your shit girl.

As for me, lolita made me feel more like myself/ more like who I’m supposed to be. I had always been super feminine growing up, which always felt in direct contrast to my nerdy/otherwise non-feminine interests. Lolita makes me feel like I can have it all; I can look and feel like a princess while blasting metal on the way to my job as a software dev and still reasonably fit the spirit of the fashion.
Lolitas, at least in my corner of the world, also seem to be relatively better-adjusted than the cosplay community. It’s nice feeling like I’m hanging out with other adults rather than people continually somehow having crisis after crisis. That is most likely regional, however; a lot of the cosplay community up here are uwu tumblr types. A lot of my lolita friends also use /cgl; it’s just fun to laugh at the drama from afar.

As for self image; I’ve felt like I have to strive to match the clothes that I love so much. I’ve always been tall, but petite and my tastes (unshirred older classic brands) are a good barometer to keep my weight in check. Lolita did give me the final push I needed to get a breast reduction that I had been contemplating for nearly a decade of shoulder pain, so that was also nice. My biggest insecurity at the moment is my hair; I have a lot of it but it’s pretty straight and it’s a challenge to get the volume I’d like with it as a result.
Ntayrt but why are you defending having an affair?

I feel like if you actually wore jfashion like you say, you wouldn't actually need an answer to this question.

Yes it is as long as you state it in your terms.

Sounds like you need barrier more than moisture if you don't usually get dry skin. Switch to a gentle cleanser e.g. Cerave, use a hyaluronic acid containing serum or cream, and then slather your barrier layer on top which can be aquaphor if you like. If that's not enough, add another moisturiser as a second layer - I like aveeno and Eucerin but it's all going to depend on what your skin likes. Sleeping packs/masks for when you are at home may also help with hydration, the laneige water one is good but I find it's more like light hydration than super intense, so I often put a barrier cream on again once it's soaked in

I have heard good things about Mac prep and prime and Too Faced

Just look up genetic hooded eye tutorials. You'll get more results and a lot of people even if they have a higher crease have a hidden crease so they don't use it in the same way as someone who has a visible high crease
So, my T-zone is dry af, but the rest of my face, including the rest of my forehead, is super oily. I don't have acne or any problem spots, but IDK what to do. I use the Ulta HD cream stick from Make Up Forever, and it looks so good on most of my skin, but the dry spots look so flaky. I use a cleansing and moisturizing system from Clinique for combination skin. I moisturize my whole face, but it doesn't seem to help the really dry spots much.

Any tips for me?
Anyone used any home remedies to shrink pores? Lemon juice, ice cubes, egg whites, honey ect let me know what you tried out.
Can't change pore size, you can only change how noticeable they look.
Check the rest of your makeup.
Also, I've noticed people tend to overreact with how "oily" their face gets. It's probably certain parts are dry, and the "oily" parts are normal.
Moisturize the dry parts for dry skin, and leave the oilier parts without powder or blotting.

I am in love with that outside, but wtf at the colors? I’ll just buy a Sugarpill palette and print an anime character for the front.
There is only one shade in that whole palette that even looks like pink on my screen. I can only imagine this being used for middle school aged weebs wanting to show how anime they are.
Rude cosmetics is a cheap makeup brand intended for small companies to buy from wholesale. This was just one of many book themed palettes. Others were unicorn themed, scifi themed, but all had pretty neutral colors since the intended audience is for normies, not weebs and lolitas. F21 did not make this palette.

Miss Smirk/Dutch Cosmunity has been mentioned a few times now and I really just, want to add some oil to the fire. Im getting sick of her.

-The goddamn failure of her anti bulli cosplay calendar kickstarter earlier this year.
-Apparently she wanted to be part of the official DCC team, didn't get trough and then started a petition so people could sign their support for her.
-She still pretends to be part of DCC in a very shady way. She was recruiting cosplayers for her Cosmunity booth, and started her pitch talk to them with 'hey do you want to be a cosplay guest for DCC?' Which is a fckin lie, they are cosslaves for her stand. Not a guest for fucks sake.
-The recruited cosplayers for said stand are barely credited.
-The aforementioned stan lee condoleance register.
-the photoshoots she organized at the end of the days, when you visit the event page it seems like its officially for and from DCC. it is not.
-Now she also has a cosplay repair point, and she got pissed how there is already others. Organized by actual cosplay supply stores, not people who barely make their own cosplay stuff themselves.
-just the fact she gets pissy or goes in denial when she finds out people talk about her. Or speak up about her attention whoring in her face.

I probably missed things but whatever. I dont give a shit about costhots or attention whores. I however get really pissy about people who pretend to be important while they arent. Promise all kinds of perks to unknowing people and claiming to be some sort of all holy anti bulli cosplay community.
I am so done with the plz no bulli owo mentality.

Back in my days you had a choice. Grow a spine and stop being a baby or shut up and be a silent baby.
bullying is part of how animals and people work. It creates 'sociale controle' in this community, just straight up giving someone feedback or constructive criticism doesn't land well in this particular community where everyone seems to be a social outcast.

That charity calendar idea of hers was nothing but a classic pyramid scheme scam. Cosplayers had to pay her to be on that calendar and this alone would cover the entire costs of production and shipping of the calendar. Next everyone on the calendar would receive 5 copies for “free” which they could sell to family and friends to break even or make a small profit themselves. At no point would she had been in any financial risk and even with the astronomically small cut for charity, a charity which by the way wasn’t even aware of her plans despite her claiming otherwise, she could had easily ended up with a 4-figure profit. It's also worth mentioning she didn't even had a designer for the calendar and expected some volunteer to design 365 pages + a cover for free as "it's a charity project".

In my personal opinion that girl is only out to make herself look important and will do anything to make others believe she is. As a person she claims to do everything for the good of the community yet has has zero integrity and no issues with blatantly lying to people as she did to the “DCC” cosplay guests she invited. She can't handle any competition in the same field as her and will try to have them removed out of spite. When confronted by constructive criticism she refuses to listen and stubbornly goes on with her plans, only to blame others for not supporting her when her plans inevitably fail. Even after her blatant lies get exposed to the public she’ll stick to her story and complain some more about how mean some people are. Personally, I find that to be her worst trait especially considering she sees herself as some PR superstar while in reality her PR skills are at the same level as Fandom Weekend.

I'm glad DCC turned her down for a staff position you know? Power hungry people like her are the last you can trust with a position of power as has been proven in the past time and again.
