Jesus this tryhard.

Sweetie: Go away. Just close cgl for a few days. You're expending any goodwill one mediocre filk song might have gotten you by samefagging yourself and it's ridiculously sad.

This is lolita. Dresses aren't popular because they're always available, they're wanted because they're rare. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Take yourself off the market for a little while so we can forget about you. You've been obnoxious since your first post itt and you need to give it a rest if you actually have any plans of being appreciated by this community.
>>
>>9499882
Sorry you're annoyed. Like I said, I get overzealous and excited and the positive reinforcement I received fueled that. As for samefagging I'm not; I understand why you would get that impression though and if you don't wanna believe me that's fine. (after all nobody believes a samefagger that cries 'not samefagging')

But I guess at the end of the day no one likes a self poster and I shot myself in the foot on this one. I'll have something of substance the next time ya'll hear from me, even if it's just a single.

But I'll say this: I'm not gonna drop my content then run away like it's a live grenade. I still wanna interact with you guys and I get that this may not be the forum in which to do it. That's part of why I suggested moving the dialogue over to facebook but now I see that it's a bit early for that.

You guys are great and you keep me sane, especially when I've got my head in the clouds and need someone to bring me back down.

IIRC, this was made pretty soon after he was introduced, so I don't think he had any merch at that point. But that being said I still like it's not that great of a bag -- calling it 'legenday' and 'glorious' is the grossest overstatement I've heard in a while. Those hearts are trashy as hell, and I personally think that fanart is pretty ugly.
But in the end all that matters is if the owner's happy with it.

Has anyone seen this base anywhere? This is the only picture I've seen of it, and I've searched everywhere with no success. I doubt it's handmade.

In my defense it was the first Christophe bag I'd ever seen (and probably the first ever made) and it did blow our minds when it got posted. By now standards are through the roof but it still made me giddy to see it.

I've been to a three of these things relatively recently and aside from some of the neat costume designs you see at these things, cons don't seem all that great.

I feel like I missed whatever made them havens for geeks before they became super commercialised venues selling tat at inflated prices cos the normies and hipsters couldn't enough of their newfound love for geek cack.

>£10 dragonballs selling for £70 at the stalls

But I don't know, I'm 28 so I remember games and comics being pretty niche in so far that I never really had anyone to talk about them, so I don't if I'm imagining something that didn't exist. What were conventions like back in the late 90s and early 00s?

(/r9k/-thing to say but I can almost swear most of the girls in skimpy costumes seem "too hot" to be geeks, almost like booth babes I remember that they used to hire for videogame events.)

>>9498867

There's no shortage of shitty self-drawn art. Not that i'm knocking art vendors because some of them make really fantastic pieces, but around here at our local con there's like 5 or 6 artists and at least 4 of them make the same poorly done DeviantArt 2006-tier "chibi characters" usually like Sam and Dean playing paddywack with Attack on Titan dudes. Shit like that.

This thread is all about panels at lolita-specific events like Rufflecon.

What type of panels would you want to see at lolita-specific events? Workshops, presentations, etc?

Any specific topics you'd like to see covered? Would you like to see panels on other things that some lolitas are interested in, like antiquing or anime?

What do you think is lacking? What type of panels are you sick of seeing?

That's a really good idea, thank you!

How do people feel about "game" type panels? I.E. Print bingo, lolita feud? I personally love them and was thinking about trying to host something similar.
>>
>>9499332
You haven't had to deal with clueless parent of many teen lolitas or weebs and buying things, have you? It's tough for many of them and it's the parents who are both clueless and hold the purse strings closed.
It was just a suggestion so if it isn't useful, that's fine too.
>>
>>9495485
Influences of historical fashion on lolita, a basic sewing and construction techniques workshop, a how-to on hostessing a good meet including serving an afternoon tea, a basic accessory making panel of some kind. Things like that would interest me if I went. Also brand guests and designers speaking about the evolution of their brand and trends in the fashion.

What I do not prefer: YouTube or e-famous lolitas as guests or speakers unless model level, RinRin, Minori, Misako, Akira, etc.
>>
>>9499615
this sounds good because it doesn't rely on the information being novel
>>
>>9499632
Speaking as someone who has been to Rufflecon each year, I know that there were in the past designer panels talking about how they go through the process of creating their releases. But since I'm not an organizer, just an attendee, I can't really make that happen myself, haha.

A basic sewing techniques and construction panel is super doable though! Thank you for your suggestions!

Okay so I forgot to check here to see if a post-con thread was up, fuck. Am the anon who was running the emergency room at the Doubletree.

Hopefully next time I'll remember to do a costume.

>What did you think of the con?
Been going for ten years, on and off, thanks to 'the curse'. This year felt...different, I can't quite place why. In any case, had fun, though not as much time to have fun, came in on a Fri rather than Thursday, and busy busy. Didn't get much sleep for reasons. May run a room again next time, this one turned out to be fine.

>How were the panels?
In general? Fucking shit. Maybe it's me or because I missed segments, but generally, what wasn't cancelled, was mostly ass. Wanted desperately to goto the Muv Luv one, but it was cancelled. Oregon Trail I missed because of reasons I can't quite remember. Some panels would just have terrible speakers, terrible presentation/coherence, and that's before you get into things like Monstergirl panel, which while it turned out to be in general about monstergirls which was nice, was run by a cringey SJW who seriously was going full moral purity - it just kind of made me wonder why would you even run a monstergirl panel?

>What did you think of the /cgl/ meetups?
I liked them, even though it took me forever to find you lot. I don't think I sat exactly quiet because of turboautism or anything, but because I liked drinking in the atmosphere.

And thanks again Anon's Sister for the party room hookup. I remember Cedric roughly, from years ago. He always runs a room like that, and I somehow find my way there usually. My glasses are a bit damaged though from nearly stepping on them. Still, had fun.

>>
>>9493939
Don't get me wrong there are some head scratching translations at times, but nothing that will prevent you from understanding the general story or from completing the stages correctly (which is a problem I had in previous games). More like just awkward phrasing that isn't 100% how a native English speaker would say things, so I'll give that a pass.

It's also really fun so I hope you enjoy! They added some new features lately so now's a great time to start.

Kollision Con - Yet another con killed by ACEN. (they cancelled it).

Has anyone noticed how ridiculous ACEN gets towards other cons when they start to get big? I've noticed the way they shut out Anime Midwest and any other local con whenever they consider them competition.

Kollision Con could have been alright, but it was pretty shit - but that's just cause they never had any money to do anything good. But this is just another example of how shitty ACEN is towards other cons.

I saw the con row in their hall - it's all cons that aren't a threat. Like Anime Nebraska. LOL who is going to Anime Nebraska from ACEN.

Wow someone from Acen has a lot of time on their hands and is really dedicated to taking down a con that literally isn't even remotely a threat to theirs.

I mean, it's not like he could just, I don't know, file an anti-slander lawsuit if this stuff could be easily proven false or anything.

Kollision Con was ok. But the constant moving from venue to venue was the true killer. The last time I went, everyone was calling it Cosplay Foam Fighting Con.

>>9490685
>I mean, it's not like he could just, I don't know, file an anti-slander lawsuit if this stuff could be easily proven false or anything.

I believe he's filed like 10 lawsuits, and none have been "lost" yet. That's how long suing someone fucking takes.

So I'll be waiting until he either loses or wins one before making a decision. But you generally don't sue people for slander unless they ARE slandering you, so I'm leaning towards believing him.
>>
>>9499706
>But you generally don't sue people for slander unless they ARE slandering you
Do you know how many people open up bullshit lawsuits and use the courts to try and get their way? I have even personally been victim to one from an ex, and my mom was a paralegal and has seen plenty of bullshit lawsuits.

One of the lawsuits did get dismissed because it was filed in the wrong state, but Kopf tried again. If this was just one or two people, I'd take it with a grain of salt, but so many people have spoken about their personal experiences with Kopf or witnessing him pull shit. Yet, how many people have stepped up to defend him and provide another side to the negative stories?
