A little over a month until Colossal's PA con!

I went last year and it was super chill and felt like Colossal Ohio before the hug attendance spike. The indoor waterpark is twice as big, with two hot tub bars including pic related, and the PA location is due for a great convention center expansion next year.

Onto the usual:
>Are you ready?
>What are you cosplaying? How are your cosplays coming along?
>What do you plan to do? Any panels you're looking forward to?

First version of the panel schedule is here, changes may be made over the coming month:

Attendee exclusive night swim is 2 nights this year- Fri & Sat 10:30pm-2:30am, 25$ charge to get in per night, or 40$ to get entry to both nights. 2000 attendance limit.

Neither are fantastic but it’s clear why he is so bitter. San if you’re reading this, your Instagram is a bunch of dark grey and brown with a splash of the orange that is your disgusting mattress. No one can see what you’re photographing, especially when it’s blurry which makes no sense when you have an iPhone X. You would be more popular if you would stop posting a million almost identical progress pics in such a dark room, stop posting gacha game shit and memes, and didn’t have such a shit personality. Then maybe you’d get that popularity you pretend you don’t strive for. Stop being a sour super serial cosplay bitch at a party convention Jesus christ

You guys had natural light and still couldn't shoot for shit with out your obstructive flashes and softboxes! Props to all those using backpacks, horseshoes and natural light, at least they were cool and unobtrusive.

Usually 1 week prior the con I start taking some vitamin C to boost my immune system, even with proper hand washing you are still breathing in germy air, knock on wood, I usually get a little sick but not full on concrud like some of my friends.

Also stay hydrated and try to have at least 1 full/good meal a day during the con.
What did everyone think of the con this year?

Yeah um. Animethon 25's finished and A lot of people had a lot of complaints.atleast in social media ive seen.

Complaints usually ranging from
1.Constantly breaking and changing direction escalator that are in constant use
2.A slow as hell elevator.
3.Lack of open space(Like long walks in between panels and such and just open space you get what I mean)
4.Nearly silent Card gaming and All of vidya in one hall (like about 3m between them)
5.Homeless people and Panhandlers everywhere and at anytime(Reportedly even at 9:30am)
6.The lack of any safety in downtown so anywhere outside the venue except for the river valley.

and my own personal complaint.
The fact that the news reported that Animethon had used every piece of equipment and room in the venue which if im estimating correctly means that they wont be able to expand.

So far though the only concrete Benefit ive seen is the AC

Con's always been shit in comparison to very other larger con in Canada, and absolute horse shit if you pull the US into comparison.

Shaw's conference center is absolute garbage for a large scale event like this. People who've done nothing but A-Thon are blind; go to some other larger convention centers and it's like night and day. It's so damn cramped. Even cons like NYCC and various events in LA aren't this bad.

The change isn't going to kill the con, but the change isn't going to help it get taken seriously. It needed to move out of the university, but they picked one of the worst spots possible to put it in. You need a lot more open space for a costume based convention. Expecting everybody to shove inside to avoid the crackheads (again, even LA isn't this bad) when everything's that cramped was a disaster waiting to happen.

Honestly the worst con I've been to in a decade. I'm getting too old for weebs.
>I'm getting too old for weebs

Okay there buddy. Once a weeb always a weeb.
>always hated anime and went for photos
>always a weeb

I guess something that's really worrying me is that I was blessed with baby fine hair. I know that it's essentially just a thick headband, so in theory if I can wear a headband I can wear a head dress, but with all the lace it might overwhelm my bald ass head.

Is there a particular reason you wear them more than other things?
If it doesn't have clips of any kind you can stitch in some at the sides to help hold it, or a hair comb. That gives you some freedom as to how far forward or back you want to place it.

I think everyone wears rectangle headdresses a little bit differently. I think tying them under the chin is the most common in old school, particularly old school sweet, but I favor the tie behind my head. That plus clips makes it stay better.
I like the clip idea. Especially if it turns out the ribbon ties don't suit my face.
I have very fine hair as well. Its thick, just straight and flat. That's one of the reasons I like headdresses, they look more balanced on hair with less volume than a big fluffy bow would. But the main reason I wear them is because I like them. I mostly only wear oldschool so it's just kinda my thing.
As other anons have mentioned I wear them either tied under my chin or on the back of my head. I also pin the ribbons with bobbypins so I don't have to tighten it too much and it stays on better. I find them comfy and basically only head accessory that doesn't give me headache. I wear them my (thin) hair down but sometimes I also do braids, looped braids, double buns or low or high ponytails. They are surprisingly versatile.

What are some character designs that are too ugly to be successfully cosplayed?

I may be in the minority but I think bnha cosplays are fucking ugly as hell with the exception of some of the main characters' hero costumes. The school uniform is among the ugliest as far as school uniforms go, and some of the side characters have designs that are so bad that they inspire crimes against nature as seen in pic related.

If you ever actually go to a con, you'll realize plenty of weebs do buy the same few outfits mostly because they have the money, but not the skill/time/experience to make a costume like that.
BNHA is going for a noticably different thing/audience than T&B -- i don't like the show either, but if someone is looking for action and more shounen-y stuff rather than the older characters and overall more adult feeling (but still fun) story of Tiger and Bunny then it's not like they're direct alternatives to one another. Or put another way, most of the peopel watching it are probably young teens themselves.

(When adults are really into it though i gotta be honest my internal reaction is "why don't you just watch tiger and bunny instead, it's the same thing but better and for adults")
why are japanese superheroes always some type of corporation, business, or doing it for money type?
They're not dumb enough to be fed the idea that you can live solely off your passions. Liking your work is great, but doing what you love without regards for the financial aspect is unrealistic.

oooh, i see. that's unfortunate.
i actually think lolitas popularity has nosedived, but there's no clear data for that, but I was also around at it's peak. It's fallen behind certain other styles.
I wonder if a wig with little curly tendrils around the face would help. Maybe softer eye makeup. He looks eerily like someone I used to be in a goth band with.

Alright thanks, I've only seen a couple not at cons but I love seeing people do it confidently in public. I really wish I saw more people with it but I have no idea if there's even a comm in my college's area. It really is lovely fashion, and it honestly is so cool to me seeing people wear it.
Not just this board, its everywhere. Its unbelievable common for these people to think "well, maybe if we have a baby, he will start loving me more!". They just like being with abusive people I guess.

prove me wrong.
Im fine with people approaching me but please don't approach people if they obviously have headphones in or are on the phone. If you make me take an earphone out, I'm not going to be happy with you

Do you guys make your own helmets or do you buy them?
If so, any tips for making helmets? I really want to make a demonica, but I've never done this shit and a helmet as hard as this seems like it'd be hard. This also has no pdo files on it.

Seems like this would be the right place to ask considering the demonica itself is 'military' gear.

This is really funny because I was around to watch mods repeatedly delete feels threads and explaining that they weren't jfash or cosplay related and would do much better on another board.

It's the gulls who repeatedly created feels threads until the mods let them stay.

So I'm kind of not really surprised the jannies ignore reports on feels threads. You have your sempais to thank for making feels thread a constant thing on cgl.
I feel like there's really only so much cosplay talk you can have though. Most everything to make has good tutorials now, so people need less help.

I think it sounds fun but i'm not sure what really leads to that. Is is just your partner asking? It seems really strange pretending to be something else during something so intimate.
OP here. Saw this thread just saved from saging or whatever. Let me clarify some things.
>She's a bad person for leaving you.
She wanted me to be more social and I tried. But in general I don't mesh well with other cosplayers. Partly my own fault for being an autist but dear god there are some stuck up, elitist cosplayers. It was just really intimidating going to a con. I don't blame my GF for hanging out with them. She asked if I was okay and I asked if I could wander off for a bit to go to the Witcher panel (MISTAAAAKE!) We were both tired and in a bad mood from heatstroke. Trust me she made it up to me later.
I feel so sad at your mean words anon, I'm crying into the heaving breasts of my cosplay gf.
Most UK cons are a nightmare. Especially the bigger ones but even the smaller ones are just fucked.

Why do cosplay and lolita attract so many mentally ill people?
137 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
I would never use my anxiety to get attention. I only tell others who have also come out saying they have social anxiety as support.

Also, even though I said earlier that I like wearing j-fashion because I can tell myself people are staring at the outfit and not me, I wish everyone could dress up. I find it so boring that people just walk outside with jeans and a t-shirt every day. I know it's not for everyone, but it would be nice if people just dressed up some of the time.
Honestly, i feel like the people who do suddenly spew about their anxiety dont think theyre doing it for attention either because theyre so oblivious. But of course with this generation of uber support and tumblr mentality, anytime someone mentions ‘muh anxiety’ people swarm to support. So these people think that ctually have support and find it socially acceptable to just word-vomit their personal problems when really no one wants to be seen as a dick for not addressing it. It just feeds into itself.

That's what you think you look like. Pic related is what you really look like.
>doing it for attention
Where I live, literally everyone says they have anxiety. It doesn't really get you attention anymore so much as it just makes you part of the norm.
