In your experience what are the best and worst fandoms you experience at a con?
77 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
MLP and Vocaloid for worst, former more so than latter. With vocaloid I think it was more iffy for the cosplayer themselves rather than them causing people suffering.

Best ones were oddly enough, the homestuck people. All those facepainted fuckers were pretty extroverted and ridiculously friendly without shitty bucket jokes and the like
Such a shame I missed it, and I was into it at the beginning.
Anyone in the Homestuck fandom is automatically a terrible person in my book.
In terms of larger fandoms with decent cosplay scenes, I'd say Fallout seems to be pretty good. I've been in 2 absolutely massive Fallout shoots at cons (like, 200+ people) and was really impressed by the level of maturity and cosplay quality. Might be because it attracts fewer kiddos, or because the people who cosplay it really put their hearts into the crazy armor and props.
I really liked DDLC but I’m not really big into VNs and I thought it was more hilarious than creepy or whatever it’s being taken as. I’ve been noticing a lot of cringe attaching to it lately which makes me sad. I really hope they lighten up and stop trying to make it into creepypasta fuckery fandom.

I think its funny when the 18-25 year old crowd at conventions will say "eww who even comes to these once you're 30"

Do you KNOW who's actually organizing these things? Do you *really* think that same 18-25 demographic is financially responsible and liable for damages? Do you suppose the same kids that have trouble organizing a lunch or a cosplay meetup have the capacity to run an event, let alone with zero problems??

These are the same people that have trouble arriving to programming or picking up a badge. I really don't see them having the wherewithal to organize a room party, even.

costume is pretty popular, got featured on a bunch of websites, social media, even the news in a few places.
well shit, i'm fucked then.
you can be more skilled than anyone at what you do or you can know people. In my con chair friend's place 5 years ago she started as a volunteer, 3 years as staff, and then the former con chair stepped down so she's cohosting with another senior staffer.

Nah. Just volunteer at cons alongside your actual work experience. It can be anything from office manager, sales, marketing, to graphic designer. Eventually a tradeshow company will hire for that kind of entry leve role and work your way up into some sort of Project Manager role.

Generally event companies want event/tradeshow experience. With cons, you'll qualify. There are tradeshows for all sorts of industries, pick one.

Don't give up. :) The hours can be a little long and the work is fast-paced, but if you're a people person, have high energy and enjoy events, you'll fit in.
The key is to just do stuff. Volunteer for positions, host gatherings, host panels, help out with panels and just ask around. You might not get what you want the first time but if you snoop along the right channels you'll eventually get to where you need to be. Good con staff are very vigilant in noticing passionate employees and will do what they can to make sure you're happy enough doing stuff so you don't leave.My personal strategy was to take a project I like doing and then used it as leverage at other places to show my skills.

They obviously sell and berry prints are iconic to sweet. I personally like seeing the variations and some people outright collect berry prints.
That brolita makes me sad, he seems enthusiastic about the fashion but looks awful. He could be decent and fit in better if he learned about wigs and makeup, I hope he improves

yeah, I buy things there weekly, but I look through the general/everything section since a lot of sellers don't categorize stuff correctly. Sucks sifting through tons of galaxy phones/cases but w/e, I've bought most of the stuff I've wanted so it's not like I'm looking for anything in particular anyways.

No it's not, it's from ascos. The miccostumes one is way lower quality/inaccurate colors and doesn't have lace on the gloves
So, any "wannabe first" Irelias already?
I give it 48 hours before they start appearing.
She’s been out on pbe for a bit anyway so they’ve had time to shit out an outfit
She’s a rework champ. They don’t get rush cosplayed as much as new champions. Probably because when you search old champion cosplay, you find the old cosplays. New champions in a cosply search is easier to get noticed because of the non existence of other cosplays. More traffic to your image and easier milking of likes.

But considering the newest champ, I’m shocked there wasn’t as many flood of cosplays of Kai’sa as there was of Xayah when she came out.

Any good lolita buys lately? I'm especially was wanting a straw hat and bag but can't find any nice looking decorated ones. I wear mostly classic with just the occasional sweet but no AP stuff or anything like that
your best bet is really buying plain and diy. i haven't found any good headwear that's quiiiite to my tastes
Anyone ordered something like this one or from taobao and knows the quality? This one has no orders atm.

Any suggestions on similar cute sweaters that arent too scratchy? Ive been looking locally for cardigans and it seems like crop sweaters are in which doesnt work for my longish torso.

Personally i found last weeks coupons great. $4 off $5 purchases everyday. Bought a bunch of stationery and wax seal merch in small orders.
I know this its a conomi knock off. AS a euroanon i see replicas everywhere and most lolitas wear crappy taobao because they can lie to customs about the prices.
Link to 2 please?

Info from the forums.
Good taste in anime anon. Probably will be doing the same when I get home for the day from the con
I wish they didn't have panels with the same or similar topics happening at the same time. I'd love to go to both the AKB48 panel and the idol anime panel, but they're both at 4:30 pm on Friday. Same thing with the Magical Girls From Around the World panel and the Sailor Moon Universe panel; I'd assume that most people going to one would want to go to the other, so I wish they happened at different times.

No its not her but I did a double take too, it does look a lot like Gothic Sushi/Maria.
makes sense, elsa doesn't really seem like her type of character.

“Whiteknighting bullshit”

I don’t even like or know this girl but tell me that what I said isn’t just, you know, the facts of the situation?

And you have a good point. You can tell anyone and warn anyone against this person. Just consider using caps of her responses too to show your point. Again, do what you want
Can you cunts stop shitting up the BST thread? I came in here to post a WTB but at the rate y'all are going it's not worth it since we're going to need a new thread soon.

Back on topic, though: WTB a wine headbow. Probably don't want to spend over $40, and I'm in the US. Preference for Baby, IW, and Meta, but will look at taobao and other brands too! (Not a huge fan of chiffon but I don't have a strong material preference)
catmouth can you please fuck off. that listing for the CCC jsk was up for ages.
i'm interested, located in the US would you do $25 shipped? my email is above if you'd like to discuss it more.
How much would you sell it for?

I'm a straight guy and I often find female footwear adorable. I'd just like to buy and wear these, but I don't have money, nor a way to explain it to anybody around me. I often wish that heels didn't go out of men's fashion :(

So they also do custom shoes that aren't listed in their shop? There are a pair of Bodyline shoes I want that are never going to get restocked, so I've been looking to commission someone for them.
Yeah. I requested a pair of shoes they've never made before at all.
I drew my own sketches and collected reference images and they were fine with it, so you should be good.
(I had mine commissioned about 2 years ago but it looks like they still do these services, just shoot them an email, they were pretty helpful for me.)
there are taobao shops that sell bodyline style shoes, just search, on mobile and don’t have link but i bought some pairs a few weeks ago

Thank you so much anon! I'm going to email them immediately.

I know there are, but I've been looking everywhere for these particular pair of shoes without any success (unless there's a taobao store that sells these that I'm completely oblivious to)
If you don’t care about brand AliExpress is the place to get cute Lolita style shoes, most under 30 dollars and there are many that go up to size 10 US! I get most of my shoes there, and is great for getting Lolita shoes to start off.

How did you meet your cosplay friends?

I'm 25. No chance to make friends offline anymore. JKM. Also not a cosplayer but a closet ouji.

Got few cool online friends. Tho I wish I could go with anyone to a con.
I didn't, yet.

A lot of my friends are generic weebs that weeb hard enough to own keychains and watch anime but not hard enough to go to local cons (let alone cons you need to split hotel + drive to for)

It's a bit infuriating, honestly.
>A lot of my friends are generic weebs that weeb hard enough to own keychains and watch anime but not hard enough to go to local cons (let alone cons you need to split hotel + drive to for)
God, I hate those kind of weebs so much.
I commented on someone's post in a group and someone recognized the obscure character in my icon, we immediately became friends and they introduced me to all of their friends. Now we all attend cons together and have a good time
Really nigga? Cosplay is a treacherous hobby to the point you would fuck over your "friends" for your own personal gains.
