The "last" time they went for WCS was the first year WCS was running in the UK so I think that's an unfair comparison. They were the only entry that had a set/performance that displayed any sort of understanding of what WCS was about, AND didn't have costumes that fell apart on stage.

The Secret of Mana group for WCS 2014 had waaaay better costumes than the Tsubasa pair, but the Tsubasa group's performance was way better. WCS is all about performance. Costume doesn't mean shit.

Yeah I can see wanting to show off the hard work you put into something but damn it just bugs me because out of all the cute props you could have, why make the one thing she didn't want in the first place and was largely left ignored until she thought Nick was suddenly going to go feral on her and then she deeply regretted ever having taken it in the first place and felt like a total ass over?

Sorry it took a while to respond!
The skirt is pretty cute, the top layer is kind of a light chiffon type material and it has a lining underneath. Though it is pretty short, I'm 5'3" and it feels a risky length even on me- and the waistband has really firm elastic, I bought a size M and it feels a little tight.

Not that anon, but excluding the top on the left in the first pic they quoted, the rest do count as crop tops. A cropped tee is just a style of crop top. Just like cropped halters, tanks, and hoodies.

Ah, 4 panels would make much more sense.

Sorry, I'm not complaining, and it's nice of anon to dump. Just confused by that one image. Maybe someone can write the 4 a little clearer.

The pleated skirt pattern isn't too far off either, but it'll probably end more like pic than the pleated skirt they drew because the bottom of the skirt doesn't have enough overlap to make pleats. Just a little note to pay attention to, because I've ended up here before and was not pleased that I overlooked this tiny detail.

I don't wear AP but thanks for the tips! For your reds, after the dunking method how do you dry them? I like the sound of the towel method other anon had mentioned above, but it takes a lot of space and my bathroom has none :(

This is something I always wanted to get an opinion on from /cgl/ because I've seen a few posts in different threads about it but I've never really seen threads about it. Anyway:

>Do you think kids should be permitted at cons? Or do you think it depends on the con?
>Do you think there should be an age limit when it comes to bringing children?

I'd just like to hear people's complaints or opinions on the subject, or even some stories.

Mine just started crawling a few weeks ago at 7 months, but has been trying to stand/walk since 3 months. His balance is starting to get really good, I think he'll be walking soon. I was walking at 9 months, my father was walking at 7 months.

He also really took his time sitting, because he didn't want to sit, he wanted to stand. He'd try to get his legs under him.

I've learned the hard way that it's best not to compare babies too much, they can vary so wildly in their development. I saw a baby recently that had many teeth, could goddamn walk, but couldn't get to a standing position on his own.
>>
>>8979210
>I don't think kids should be barred from conventions in general,
I feel that children under 5 should be barred/banned. Or that all cons should have their own rules regarding children and age limits...

>but I do feel like parents should have more sense of whether their kids can handle it or not, and act accordingly.
...because of this very reason.

The parents who actually care about their own children's feelings and use common sense aren't the ones who are dragging their 4 month old babies around events like PAX. I think cons should have certain rules (even going as far as barring them) when if comes to babies and small children because it's not the good parents you have to worry about, it's the idiots and shit parents that ruin things for their kids and for other con goers.
>>
>>8982826
Speaking the straight truth. You'd think PAX having an absolute no stroller rule would cue folks in on Not really family friendly.

But no, always some moron thinks their crotchspawn is exempt and a special little turd blossom. I'm just waiting for a kid to get in huge trouble and all cons start cracking down on regular attendees.

I think the biggest issue is many of the normal fag parents treat cons like a trip to Disneyworld. It's cheaper and it's simply just got to have the same amount of precautions set up.
>>
>>8982835
>I think the biggest issue is many of the normal fag parents treat cons like a trip to Disneyworld. It's cheaper and it's simply just got to have the same amount of precautions set up.
Those parents are the fucking worst. Especially when they let their kids wander around and do whatever. I've heard so many horror stories about kids dirtying up a costume/breaking props because their parents just let them do whatever
>>
>>8979283
I'll probably take my future kids to cons. Spouse and I travel up to Sakuracon every year, so I don't see why I wouldn't take my kids. If they get too rowdy, I'll leave them with my in laws in Seattle and go back to the con.

Seeing kids at cons doesn't bother me until it hits about 8pm. Then you need to be packing up and leaving.

Also, stop bringing toddlers to formal dances. They don't understand. It's not their fault, they're just not old enough to get it.

Also, I'll definitely dress them up, but once they hit 5 or so, I'll give them the option. No sense in forcing a kid to wear something they don't want to.

This is exactly how my parents raised me around comic and sci-fi cons in the early 90s, and it didn't fuck me up.

Not from your comm or area but why don't you just kick out the meet killers. It sounds like it'd benefit your comm.

>>8977653
It's difficult. The girl mentioned is a woman with severe autism who can't even read or write, she's basically a nine year old. I'm pretty sure she doesn't really know what lolita is either. Though she sometimes sexually harasses people she doesn't understand how her own behavior affects other people. I guess the mods feel sorry for her.

A few aren't in the comm but try to go to our meets from time to time. In this case it's up to the organizer to remove them but they don't want to cause drama and they often don't end up going anyway. Others are people that are very difficult to tolerate but being very annoying and embarrassing isn't against the comm rules.
>>
My comm is full of cheap people who refuse to spend over £20 for a nice day out.
Or the vegans will bitch about how zoos and aquariums are so cruel, so it narrows down our choices. Plus there's so many fucking flakes, that planning things is almost impossible and our most popular meets are cheap, casual ones.

Please, I'm begging you Mana-sama, give me a decent comm.
>>
>>8977184
You are not really understanding me. If you didn't make the comment I initially replied to, please read it for context. I'm not attacking private meets, I just think they shouldn't be counted as comm meets and the Dutch comm doesn't have many comm meets.
>>
>>8978162
>basically a nine year old
>doesn't really know what lolita is
>sexually harasses people
Kick. Her. Out.
You're not being paid to take care of her, you don't enjoy her company and she's making people uncomfortable. Sure it might hurt her feelings but that's not really your problem. Why should an entire group of people be made to feel uncomfortable just to spare one person's feelings? If her autism is really that severe she'll probably forget about it pretty quickly. Kick her out.

>>8978577
Agreed with this, to be honest. If the meets aren't open to the entire community (even if it's for a good reason) then they're not community meets.
