Con-nichiwa in a week, PCC in a couple months. What's happening?
>>
Can anyone else besides Saboten get good guests?
>>
>>9400062
I'm so tired of Kazha every fucking year at Sabo. Iruma Rioka was A++ a few years back, as was that one jrock dude group. Wish we would get more quality musical guests like that. At least I've never seen Chii Sakurabi before. Her music isn't quite my taste but she's cute at least and something new so I'll check her out for sure. Not sure whether to avoid Vic mcnugget like the plauge or indulge in my inner 14 year old weeb and get him to autograph my old FMA dvd
>>
I wish if Greg wanted to keep on bringing in old irrelevant voice actors he'd bring back Steve Blum or at least get Chris Patton.
>>
Wish Connichiwa was at the Holiday Inn still, It's awful at the convention center. Every year is exactly the same, there is nothing ever new to see.
>>
Personally, I've been side-eyeing the "fashion show" I'm assuming that will be hellish to endure.
>>
>>9400499
Then don't go. Or, please enter and wear something good. It's always so small I wish more people who had a sense of style or who sewed entered. I love D and her designs, but I wish she wasn't the only entrant every year in the Conni fashion show. Especially since I know there are a ton of competent seamstresses in Tucson who attend this con.
>>
Can we do a /cgl/ meetup here? Plz? I have no friend and I don't know what do
>>
>>9400675
Talk to people and stop being a hermit creeper expecting people to talk to you.
>>
>>9399895
Probably going to skip Con-nichiwa, the lineup looks abysmal. PCC should be a fun time
>>
>>9400663
>Especially since I know there are a ton of competent seamstresses in Tucson who attend this con.

They're avoiding it on purpose, as anyone with any self respect would. No offense to you or anything.
>>
>>9401769
It wouldn't be such a shit show if they actually participated though.
>>
>>9400062
but Sabo can't even get any good guests???

They only op for dub VAs that did something 10 years ago or Japanese musicians. I really wish they would invest in an actual Japanese VA or if they had to get more english VAs, get someone that did lines for a popular overwatch character
>>
>>9402101
well they did bring Akira Yamaoka a few years ago. But that was more music. Greg just had connections with has been VAs which is why he always brings them. I typically just go for one day now since the convention is lacking in content now and is repeating the same garbage year after year. Greg does need to change up his algorithms for the con.
>>
>>9402082
It's not the lack of seamstresses that are making it suck. It's repetitive, anyone in state who's interested has already participated and there's never anything new, especially when you factor Saboten in (putting on the same show with the same people). Even new items from new designers wouldn't revive it, because no one attends Connichiwa's fashion show regardless. It's a catch 22.
>>
>>9400716
I've never really understood how people just make friends at cons by talking to people... it's always seemed to me something you go to with your friends. I've only recently began making friends in the con world by tabling in AA.
>>
>>9402583
Well being approachable and not an aspie is a starter. Sparking conversation with people and knowing when they really don't want to talk is another factor. You're obviously bad at social skills if you can't make friends in the con scene. That or your that person that just talks constantly and is desperately trying to make friends but can't because they don't know when to shut up.
>>
>>9402596
>you must be bad at ____
>no real con crit, just fauxcern

you have no chill, lay off.

>>9402583
I stick to myself a lot at cons, I'll comment on people's cosplay and go from there, it's a starting point if you guys have a fandom in common!
>>
>>9402607
Anon has a good point though. People who make statements about not being able to make friends tend to be that annoying guy that walks up to girls trying to talk about how they built their monster computer.
>>
>>9402583
>Chat over drinks at the bar
>Go to some parties
>Share common interestes and see if they want to be facebook friends
Multiple ways

So aside from upcoming PCC, not much really going on in the con scene in Arizona till Sabo right?

Ftfy
>>
how's conni going so far?
>>
>>9408629
Same old pannels, Chii's concert was cute. It kind of played out like an old Nintendo rpg game. Interesting concept. There's some decent cosplay this weekend too.
>>
Was the masq any good? I had to do otaku closet so I missed it but I saw some good ass cosplay coming out after it ended.
>>
okay but is the hotel hot tub only out of order when con comes around because it kinda seems that way
>>
>>9408629
attendance seemed way down than normal, some of the panels were pretty fun though. crawling with 14yos and their moms it felt like. the artist alley was abysmally slow and nobody really made any money.
>>
>>9409812
All this is true. so many 14 year olds. First time I hit the con, I had to get some homestucks to let me in the glass doors on the north and then they took it as opportunity to introduce themselves as "John and Rose" follow me around. I just ignored them and they went away after like 5 minutes.

How is homestuck a thing still, it's 2017, let it die please.
>>
>>9409697
Just put in a bad yelp review or something, that is literally the only thing I can think of. If i had a hotel Id close the hot tub every time con people came around too, knowing our crowd.

On a side note, this was the first year that security wasn't super aggressive which is a plus. I just don't think anyone gives a shit about this convention, it's 5 minutes from my house and I still don't want to go.
>>
What is the best con for vending at AA here?
>>
>>9410234
If you can get a table PCC since it's got the most people attending. Second would probably be sabo. We have shit cons honestly so maybe try for an out of state con like one of the California cons.
>>
>>9402596
Someone's on their period
>>
>>9400499
>>9400663

The fashion show results.

I kind of wish this con would cease to exist, attendance seemed to have plummeted
>>
>>9411356
Well that's what you get for making a fashion show out of con attendees. They have been asking our comm for volunteers for the fashion show for months, but I don't want to pay to go to a con just to be in a fashion show. If they want a decent lolita fashion show they should let us participate for free (but not attend the con).


On the other hand, how was the tea party? The space and those tables and chairs looked really sad from what I saw...
>>
>>9411356
Wow god what the fuck. What is the girl in white even supposed to be? Fucking Ring-kei?
>>
>>9413905
It was really nice, probably the best one I've been to since it started. Chii Sakurabi showed up which was a huge plus.
>>
>>9413985
That's exactly what I thought

>>9413905
There's plenty of cons that have nice fashion shows, this is just not a good convention. Of course more girls would have shown up if they didn't need a badge, but this one of the main events for the con, why would they let people participate without a badge?

They need to change everything about this con, the location, the guests, the panels, everything if it wants to get better. It's repetitive and needs a complete overhaul.
>>
>>9414151
>this one of the main events for the con, why would they let people participate without a badge

Since this is one of the big events, and it has this kind of abhorrent turn out, then yeah they should be getting lolitas to participate without a badge. Doesn't mean they should let them roam the whole con for free though.

Or at least get an indie brand to show. Otherwise this is just a sad paid vanity ita fashion show.
>>
>>9414162
You have to remember that Greg doesn't give the slightest fuck about the jfashion community or the lolita community though, which does not help the situation unfortunately.
>>
>>9410236
>>9410234

I've vended at all the AZ cons and did the worst at PCC, plus the tables are so expensive. The vendor hall is so big that nobody even bothers with artists. Sabo is probably the best. And surprisingly, Kikori was p good. People in flagstaff have too much money and don't know what to do with it.
>>
>>9414226
not original anon but how much did you make at kikori? where was your spot in the AA at PCC? (I'd even possibly consider getting a vendor spot for a better location at PCC since I split with my best friend)
We did good at Sabo, would do better next year, and Conni sucked mostly because of extremely low foot traffic - we did better than anyone in AA by about a thousand.
Considering only doing Sabo/SoCal cons in addition to salt lake comic con or something similar. Don't think the drive to Flag is worth it for such a tiny con
>>
>>9414468
Also I know this isn't an AZ con but has anyone sold at Sabaku con in Albequerque? It's run by Greg / monkey paw, some spots opened up and we're considering but I'm not sure if the drive is worth it from Phoenix, especially if I can't even find attendance numbers
>>
>>9414471
>if I can't even find attendance numbers

That's because it is tiny. Sub-1k. If Greg doesn't brag about it being amazing then you know it's not worth it.
>>
>>9414471
1750 according to Twitter. I'd say it's not worth it
>>
>>9414226
I made out like 10x my table coats at PCC and barely made 50% over my table at sabo. Maybe you're just located in a area that has nothing of interest or you have nothing unique to offer. Getting an end table really helps, having a stand that isn't like the rest also helps draw people into your table. The more inviting your table is the more it will being people interested. You may not do well at PCC because your missing something. It's not a bad AA con. It the AA merch that's bad when it's the same as your neighbor.
>>
>>9414226
Taiyou Con is pretty good to vend at as well, I've never had a problem. The tables are cheap so I always make my money back and a lot more. The staff is nice too.
>>
>>9415241
Taiyou is extremely pleasant. very easy to do well at, fun, and I made lots of friends.

Greg doesn't give a shit about the lolitas here, why does he try so hard to get guests catering to us?
>>
>>9415866
Yeah a shit guest. Sorry but it is commonly known that Dolldelight is not a lolita. Sorry but Cakeshop Couture makes better lolita stuff then her.
>>
>>9415686
Yeah I agree! Taiyou is small but I like that it's a chill con and everyone seems nice enough to meet and hangout

>>9415866
Okay but who the fuck is this because I have never heard of her and there could've been better j-fashion guests if they tried harder?
>>
>>9416003
A shitty designer who makes ~doll fashion~
Watch The Doll Life on Myx.tv for a good ol' fashion cringe fest.
>>
>>9415866
Greg's super out of touch wife heard thinks she is a lolita and asked for this guest, how fucking embarrassing, I would never go to see her.
>>
>>9416003
> not having heard of Dolldelight before
Anon, please.
>>
>>9409224
Lots of really good entrees, and the MCs were very charming.
>>
>>9415866
Eh I would rather not go if she's there. Not interesting enough to lure lolitas to attend unless you like pattern dresses that don't know how to color block. Her style isn't Lolita. It's drag queen runway.
>>
>>9416501
You know they have a guest suggestion thread for every con. Why don't you suggest your own guests to them? I'm more fairy kei, not lolita, but I know enough about it that I never see anyone ever suggest any lolita guests.
>>
>>9417308
where? I'd honestly never heard of this thread
>>
>>9417308
I'm actually friends with Greg and have suggested Lolita guests to him several times. It's not my fault he doesn't want to bring misako , rinrin or asuka here. That's expensive since they live in Japan. Dolldelight lives in the United States so it's cheaper to get her here. But he doesn't know shit about Lolita and his wife is so lost in the fashion that it's no surprise at this point. If Greg wants a good convention that isn't slowly bringing repetive, he would actually listen to the suggestions. But cheap is as cheap does.
>>
>>9417885
I mean, there are decent US guests that would be cool to meet. Not huge ones, but Greg won't shell out for something big unless he sees it'll bring money anyways.
>>
>>9420165
Greg won't shell out money period. You should know this at this point. He's had the same guests that the con scene was cray about back in like 2009. He's living in the past con glory but not bringing to new stuff that people actually like to the cons. That's why the cons all seems to be the same shit but a different year.
>>
>>9417308
I haven't seen a single suggested guest be announced. Plus omg So many people have suggested terrible people. You should see some of the cosplay guests that frequently get suggested.
>>
So, in another stroke of genius, Greg has moved Kikori's dates for 2018. Looks like they're skipping this year in order to move to a Spring date block.

I personally feel like it's convention suicide. Everyone I know who went to Kikori went because it was nice and cold up in flag during the fall and it was definitely possible for heavy costumes. Also I believe it's Matsuri weekend as well. Which means most weebs in the valley will probably just stay in the valley.

Can anyone think of any good reason as to why they made this switch?
>>
>>9421307
There's some event in flagstaff that has all the hotels booked all of november for the next five years or something. So it wasn't by choice. I can't imagine the weather would be too much different though.

I didn't realize it was the same weekend as Matsuri though. That's really sad. ;;
>>
>>9421019
The cosplayers Dustbunny's panels were fucking horrid at conni this year. Never heard of her before, but I figured I'd go check her out. Her whole panel was basically bragging about how she got free rides to cons all over the country and how she didn't actually have to do work or give real panels, just brag about all the free stuff she gets for nothing.

Holy Jesus I can not believe that THIS was a guest at the con. It wasn't until I saw her and her mediocre ass costume in the panel room that I realized the awkward chick I had just seen doing a photoshoot in the hall was actually invited as a guest.
>>

heard that Angel showed up to a lolita meet again this weekend. anyone get attacked?
>>
>>9421768
Who??? The lolita meet was quiet and fun. Don't make shit up.

>>9421307
Matsuri is always the last Saturday and Sunday of February.

>>9422853
She's batshit crazy.
I was trying to befriend her when she first joined and I deeply regret it....
From the constant whining about her family being "oh so horrible and abusive" to completely making shit up about people at the meetup.

One of the first times I hung out with her, she pretended to faint on me...like obviously faking it.
She literally fell ON TOP of me.

Naturally, people started avoiding her at meetups because they got sick of her playing the victim in made up scenarios (you literally couldn't have a conversation without her talking about her issues for 30 minutes straight)
And she made a huge post about "lolitas are such boolies! Why don't they accepts me??" Ect ect

This, the last meetup she went to prior to this one was last year's Valentine's meetup? And she showed up late, sat away from everyone else, and refused to talk. People went over and made 100% of the effort to try and say hi and talk to her and her then-fiance-now-ex and she just ignored them and eventually left without a word. Then she had the fucking gall to come onto facebook after leaving and complain that everyone avoided her and ignored her and it was cliquey and no one even noticed she was there bawwww.

Followed by making an album with pictures from meetups (many of which she didn't even attend) next to screencaps of cgl posts and btb posts about her.
>>
>>9423752
I didn't know about the album and I didn't know about her breakup....

Should I be worried to get shot at a meetup she goes to? What does the pink text pic say?

I was surprised she was engaged at all....she and her fiance were living with her ""abusive"" mom because they "couldn't afford to move out"
Meanwhile she was buying 500+ lolita sets left and right.
>>
>>9423818
What does she look like? She sounds familiar.....
>>
>>9423968
like a fucking lich
>>
>>9423818
This was in response to her asking for rides, Coord advice, anxiety advice, and then throwing a fit about how all of the advice she was given was useless and couldn't apply to herself for x y and z reasons. Most notably when no one would drive to BFE to pick her up, she said she couldn't meet anyone half way or take an Uber because she was afraid of being sexually assaulted and murdered. Out of all the mean shit people have said about her here or on btb, this was pleasant and nice in comparison. The person was blunt not mean. Must of just stung hearing the truth. I wonder if her fiance had anything to do with her weird behavior. I knew a girl who was pretty psyco but after she ditched her dude she mellowed out a ton. She didn't eat any food or talk to anyone at the meet last weekend. Just took selfies and left.she was a lot more put together then the last time I saw her. Girl needs to learn to makeup still.
>>
>>9423982
>she couldn't meet anyone half way or take an Uber because she was afraid of being sexually assaulted and murdered

That part was my favorite. I don't give a fuck how mean this is, I'd feel bad for the Uber driver if she got sexually assaulted... not to mention even if she did take one, it doesn't matter how uneventful the ride is because afterwards she'd tell everyone how creepy it was and how she was almost raped etc
>>
>>9424027
>I'd feel bad if the rapist chose such an uggo to rape.

I thought you were suppose to grow out of this dumb ass mentality after you graduated hs.
>>
>>9423982
Is the other girl that was psycho S by any chance?
>>
>>9424090
Oh cut the shit, of course I'm not being serious. Go cry on tumblr about my problematic joke.
>>
>>9400716
This is me in real life. Not op.
>>
>>9424103
There have been two psyco "S"s in the comm and both have lead themselves out years ago. The girl I know who was psyco was some normalfag girl from my old highschool not related to the Lolita/con scene. Dude was weird and fucked with her anxiety and made her a lot more unberable then she was without him. So I wouldn't be too surprised if M or others suffered and acted out in a similar way.
>>
>>9423818
>Meanwhile she was buying 500+ lolita sets left and right.

Wasn't her fiance the one buying her all that brand though? If >>9424171 is correct then he could of been using Lolita as a way to "show his love" to keep her in a bad relationship. Didn't he also encourage her to quit her job too?
>>
>>9424171
S was pretty funny though. She was my favorite lol cow. Assuming we are talking about the one that was the one that came in trying to take over the comm then flounced when heat got to hot for her. Don't know the other S though.
>>
>>9424201
Funny enough what I experienced with both S girls though limited were both the same. Thought brand made them the queen bee and when no one ate their shit up they flounced.
>>
>>9424208
I rarely attend meets but talk often in the group discussions. I never had any actual interaction with them rather then the chats on the page. But the S that tried to take over the group was a lot of help on how to taobao when it wasn't as easy as it is today. She was pretty amusing to watch crash and burn though. Didn't she move to California though? Last thing I remember of her was the trip to Japan.
>>
>>9424179
Might be true. I never knew how she got so much brand but I was under the impression her fiance was just as broke? I always assumed she was racking up massive amounts of CC debt, but I have nothing to back that up.
>>
>>9424227
>>9424179
This is just something I heard secondhand so maybe take it with a grain of salt, but I heard she was milking both her fiance AND her ex-bf for the brand sets... which could have something to do with why she no longer has said fiance.

>>

It used to be in like January when it first stated in Mesa. You're just not dedicated like others are. There was a reason last year had so many bikini cosplays.
>>
>>9424222
Oh god I remember when she tried to start up that Genso box fiasco. At first she tried to deny it was her even though the company address was Scottsdale and she was one of the few living in Scottsdale, and an anon recognized her wardrobe when she posted a photo of it to the website blog.
>>
>>9424460
That was her downfall. Just own up to it. She was soo fast in and out of the fashion that it was like less then a year she was active and then poof gone. She let her newly found obsession get to her head and fell down soo hard she couldn't get back up. So she flounced. Do wish our gothic Lolita M was more active. She was always a lovey person to talk to. Her not wife N was inspirational when she dressed in Lolita too. But I was too scared to approach her since she seemed pretty bitchy.
>>
>>9424481
They both drank the S koolaid hard so they think they're too good for the comm now.

>>9424320
i don't think PCC would be as well-attended if it wasn't Memorial Day / summertime.
it's not THAT hot. and you barely ever have to go outside for PCC. do you not live in the valley? that's the only reason I can see why you'd complain about May weather

I've been wracking my brain since fucking Wednesday and can't for the life of me think of the second psycho S. The only one that comes to mind is GensoBox bitch.

>>9426786
Me too anon. Me too. I know of the drama between K and J. Then there's S and A. Then D with everyone which pretty much had K and D flounce for a while. D is back and not as cringy as before. K is more cringy and more crazy now that her efame hit a bit. I can't think of any other S involved with shit other then the S that D knows. But she's not crazy from what I have gathered. But she also rarely talks as is. I am friends with her and she's pretty chilled out now that she's not with that guy any more.

I only know of the tooth scam bullshit, where she ate a disgusting amount of sweets for her kawaii loli aesthetic to the point of her teeth rotting.
Lied and said she had a genetic tooth disease + said she was poisoned and it caused her to lose her teeth. her whiteknight army paid for the entire surgery + dentures.
She also has them buy her hundreds of dollars worth of itune gift cards for love live gems, and has even offered nudes for them. She leads on a bunch of fat neckbeards so they'll protect her. It's pathetic on both ends.
>>
>>9429579
Are you serious? I felt legitimately sorry for her because it really looked like she had never seen a dentist or used a toothbrush in her life, so I assumed the tooth disease was a real thing. Wtf....??

How the fuck is AZ Powergirl "cosplay famous"? Her wigs and costume materials are fucking atrocious. She has a nice body I guess even though desu her tits are on the verge of way too big, but she isnt particularly pretty. While I wouldn't call her ugly, she has shit makeup skills, and it definitely doesn't do her face any favors.

OH I remember her, she had like a fucking vendetta against Sam. She was/is nutso but behind the scenes thankfully.

Anyone know if cosplay is a common thing at Zapcon? I moved here recently and people in my hometown used any fucking excuse to throw on a closet cosplay.
>>
>>9429922
I haven't been, but going off the pictures it would probably be a little weird. It's a bunch of middle aged guys playing pinball so it's not really your typical con-fare
>>
>>9429579
>>9429680
Does this person's real name start with A?

There is a girl in the comm that has terrifying teeth and ultra greasy hair. She legitimately scares me and makes me want to go home and brush my teeth five times a day. I kind of cringe when I see her mention that she's going to a meet. I try to be friends with everyone, even itas, but this is the one person I genuinely don't want to be near.
>>
>>9430441
Do you mean >>9423969 ?
>>
>>9430459
I don't think so. The other girl looks slightly different and way worse teeth. I think she is from Tuscon.
>>
>>9424320
I live out of az for school now but it's nice to be able to head back and go knowing it won't interfere with too much since it's in the summer between semesters. I don't mind the heat too much especially now that they're mailing the badges to us and we don't have to wait in lines wrapping around PCC
>>
>>9430566
I go to meetups pretty often and I've never really noticed anyone from Tucson with nasty teeth. M is the only one I've seen with noticeably fucked up teeth. D a bit but they aren't so bad. Kind of cute in the way that some Japanese girls get the "kawaii" fucked up teeth implants done
>>
>>9431130
A isn't a lolita, she's just a weeb who's well known in the con scene
>>
>>9431130
Maybe she doesn't go to Tuscon meets that often, I'm not from that area. When you see her you definitely won't forget. Her teeth are not crooked but are rotting out of her mouth. The gaps between each tooth are wider than the teeth themselves and the teeth are in a ) ( kind of shape. Her Facebook photos are all rather normal and don't show her teeth so I can't even post that. I think she posted in CoF once but with her mouth clothes so people didn't really say much.

These are the teeth we're talking about, she doesn't go to Lolita meets. She just buys shitty cosplay (claims to sew it herself) and takes selfies at home for the most part.
>>

Yeah that's her. The girl who claims to uguu and be loli and people fall for that schick. We have enough pedophiles lying about their age in our scene anyway, so she won't run out of white knights.

Uh. Thanks for the blog post?
Call it a pet peeve, but I hate it when people post this kind of stuff on the group wall

Figures.

>>9432133
Yeah I felt the same way... like first of all... who u? second, it's a group of over 150+ people, no one noticed or cared.
>>
>>9431130
D no one cares that you think your teeth are those kawaii Japanese teeth. You have crooked teeth, not cute Japanese crooked teeth.
>>
>>9432274
Ok? Not D but whatever. Way to project anon.
>>
>>9432274
Yeah sorry D loathes herself way to much to even try and sneak a compliment in like that. She's much more likely to get caught shit-talking K and the mods than she is asspatting herself.

nice to know shes got white knights that also hate her but still will guard her ass to hell and back.

>>9432404
I wasn't really guarding or white knighting though... you accused someone of being D, two separate people told you that was wrong, and now you're playing like we lick her ratty doc martins or some shit. It's like if I replied to you saying "hi pixyteri ;^)" or some retarded shit like that and then accusing people of defending PT when they told me that was stupid

Here have some classic D as compensation
>>
>>9432421
Who the fuck is she even talking about in the first paragraph? Meanwhile she has posted here on the regular for years.
And if she's referring to K as her best friend, I've heard K talk more shit about D first hand then anybody else in the comm.
>>
>>9432425
Not sure about the first part, but the last bit is probably about C because she's posted in drawthreads a handful of times which obviously means she's been shitposting the entire comm here for some reason. And then has the AUDACITY to ban poor innocent Dom when all she did was admit to posting a ton of really toxic secrets and try to goad others into it as well.

It's really laughable how much K goes out of her way to tell total strangers about how desperate and sad and dumb D is but D will still fight tooth and nail for her.
>>
Y'all even I can admit my teeth are pretty gross.

>>9432421

Wow that's old and based in some pretty petty and pretentious high horse shit I was on. Working on not being this anymore.

Thanks for the reminder.
>>
i used to make secrets about all the comm members on btb before i ever joined, and sometimes i wonder if it was at the same time as Dom, who I've never met.
>>
>>9432431
but who was the mysterious mod who posts people on btb
>>
>>9432442
A misunderstanding that I blew up over, because I as misinformed. Decided to pitch a fit instead of making sure my assumption was true.

Like a dumbass.
>>
>>9432133
I thought the same. Looked through profile. Its all anime but then, OmG it's scary teeth girl you guys were talking about!!! Thanks for that post I guess, now I know.

>>9432450
So what even happened between you and Dom? Thought you were besties.
>>
>>9432527
Are you retarded?
>>
>>9432527
How could that be scary teeth girl? I thought she hadn't been to a meetup yet?
>>
>>9432532
Some personal shit went down, she hurt me deeply and I didn't want to be her friend anymore. Nothing extravagant, she was just a shitty friend (big shocker I know).
>>
>>9432731
Good job getting free, she's a narcissistic cunt.

On a side note, that's one of a few reasons I refused to sympathize or tolerate her, because I didn't want people thinking I was on her side for a second. People tried to excuse her behavior with "she's young, she will grow out of it." No, she's spoiled, has atrocious manners, and self absorbed, I doubt she'll ever get over herself.
>>
>>9432927
In all honesty her selfishness is what caused the end, without going in to specifics.

I do hope she grows out of it, but who's to know what will happen?
>>
>>9432931
I was hoping she would grow out of it years ago but she somehow keeps getting worse. Good on you for getting out of that.

I've meant Dom only a handful of times and could feel the crazy in the air when she spoke. It was like walking on egg shells around her to not set her off on a "muh you're offending me by your meat eating life style. Murder"

I did like the " you're not feminist if you eat meat" argument she threw a while back. That was a good laugh. If any one has caps of that I would like to see those again .

>>9433744
She's fucking nuts. Does she know that a lot of fabric dyes are made from synthetics and often tested on animals for reactions right? Posting links to something on the internet is not a good way to source your arguments. Especially since they are from biased sites that will twist and bend the info to fit into their agendas. PETA is like the worse person to ever source since they literally lie to prove their point in animal cruelty. Is she one of those people that will fight tooth and nail about MAC products not being tested on animals when they even admitted they had to test on animals to make sales in China? Or is it what you don't see doesn't exist? I dunno but I wish I still where friends with her on Facebook because her constant foot in mouth knee jerk post where always fun to read for the laughs.

You act like it's still not. Oh man her crazy is worse now that she's a stripper.

She's a stripper now? I blocked her on fb a long time ago so I'm out of the loop on her crazy. Stories pls
>>
>>9434788
Who gives a fuck if she strips I just don't want that shit tagged on her main instagram with her tagged Lolita stuff, which it is.
We do not need that shit affiliated, especially from the followers she gains from the ridiculous amount of tags she uses (vegan,lolita,girlswithtattoos,stripper,veganstripper,girlswithpiercings,vegantattoos,veganlolita,stripperswithtattoos. I wish I was exaggerating. Every single post. she's so fucking pretentious.). She already gives the fashion a bad enough name as it is.
>>
>>9434940
What you gonna do about it? Nothing. She's gonna tag it like that to gain attention. If you have learned any thing about her over the years you would know she likes attention. Especially the negative knee jerk type. No one would push their vegan protest bullshit like she does without finding it immensely gratifying knowing that someone's going to take the bait and get triggered by her presence. Just roll your eyes and move on. If people follow her for the false image she's doing to the community then they are pretty lost in the fashion any way. Either they will get into it and learn she's a shitty person in the fashion or they will be fetishists that they probably already are which is why they are following her in the first place

She's definitely not as chunky as she was before, more power to her I guess. I couldn't believe how out of shape she looked even with her vegan diet

She's so deluded she legit thinks she's #bodygoals too. I mean like, she could be if she spent more time on the pole and less time shilling herself online? Or literally any physical acitivity at all? But until she concedes that she'll never be more than flabby on just her perfect vegan diet~ that won't happen.
>>
I honestly wonder how many of these comments are made by Dom herself.
She hasn't been relevant in the AZ comm in a while, and LA seems to already hate her.

She's an insufferable cunt, but I wonder if she's making a lot of these comments to stay relevant? Doesn't she usually swoop in to white knight herself?
Just a theory.
>>
>>9437744
That sounds like a lot more planning than she usually does. I'd guess it's more likely that AZ just loves a good trainwreck and there hasn't been shit all else to talk about
>>
>>9437123
Can confirm that being vegan doesn't make you skinny. You can deep fry damn near anything, anon.

>>9437744
I wouldn't be surprised she's apparently doing a podcast about stripping and Lolita with her stripper lolita friends and the bullying in the communities, so I wouldn't be shocked if she was here making more fake drama to whine about and make people feel bad for her

If you read the thread you'll see Dominique is the only drama whore and she's moving to LA. The comm is perfectly fine. Of course if you read about it on 4chan you're going to see all the bad shit. Join the group and see for yourself, everyone is pretty nice and cool! And we have some really cool meet ups planned for the future! We'd love for you to join us!
>>
>>9438656
It all stays on the internet, there's literally no drama at meets. It looks way worse online, everyone's really nice. We just like bitching about Dom. Come out with us!
>>
>>9438145
This!! We would go out for meets and I never saw her actually eat a vegetable, not fucking once. She would just whine and moan about not going to a vegan restaurant. I have friends with food allergies, they just quietly bring their own food in a container for a snack to tie them over. Everywhere has salads desu, eat something before you come out if you know your options are going to be limited because of your diet.
>>
>>9438778
And honestly from what I've seen, the comm members have been really cool about making allergy/vegan safe dishes at potlucks, and/or check menus for events to make sure everyone can eat.
>>
So we got Lolitas down, any cosplayers or photographers to be wary of? I know AZ seems to birth a few efame chasers but none too crazy it looks like. I might start attending some cons once I move to Phoenix.
>>
>>9439012
Can't find his FB so I'm not sure what he goes by right now, but watch out for a dude who goes by Shado. Tall lanky creep, greasy unkempt hair, usually wearing black eyeliner, loves MLP porn. does halo/assassin creed armor shit. Creeps on young girls and people in general. Is close to getting kicked out from a few cons for harassment and alcohol, just hasn't been caught in the act yet. You'll know him if you see him, gives off major creep vibes.

Old news, but a guy with the initials of RT. Known as steampunk Waldo a lot of the time, although he might have dropped off the con scene since I haven't seen him in a while.
I actually used to be friends with him and he's a mega creep.

Used to creep on me even though he's married with a kid. His wife is a total sweetheart though, it's a shame
>>
>>9439012
Oh and Captain Wazoo. Really fat dude dresses like a pirate, can't miss him. Claims it's okay to sexually harass women because he's "just in character". He's banned from most events though.

If you look really young and are somewhat attractive be wary of Gackto and a few of his buds. They are all harmless sleazes for the most part but can get into creep mode really quick.

Jesus, you guys brought some bad memories up. First off A got all the money for her teeth from her best friends family because no one was willing to pay up (stealing and lying about it isn't a nice thing) then found out months later she stole from one of her "white knights" about 300 if I remember right from his hotel room, on top of a laptop. She also gets cosplay, didn't buy them, got them as gifts and claims otherwise, feel bad for them since she plays them like a violin, hell she almost got one of her friends killed over jealousy by a photographer in the comm. As for others who play the age game, Gackto is best to be avoided, will steal your girl, and ripoff people blindly, and it's all because no one will call him out on it, but hey that's Arizona cons, we're all crazy from the heat.

Is this the girl that was "engaged" to
Howl from howl's moving castle? If it is, man that bitch stole cosplays and jfashion from me and a friend a few years back and ignored us when we tried to get them back. Not sure what has happened to her since, not that I care any more because I'm still salty about my missing clothes she stole. And that was like 10 years ago!

Is that related to that photography duo she worked for? Gosh I actually forgot, wait Twisted Manga?

not that anon but yeah same girl. If I remember correctly it was a fake account she made since she wasn't over someone else in the cos community
>>
>>9441653
excuse u I'm beautiful!!!
>>
>>9442849
Same with Crunchyroll

>>9442850
I had a feeling. I knew the account was fake because I knew who the cosplayer was. But she was soo lost in that obsession. Like even when they " broke off the engagement" she played it off like it was real. She was a class A pitty party enforcer. Like in person she would always talk about how Ill her mother was and how she was always sick and had to miss school. All I saw her for was a lazy didn't want to do any thing for herself so she minupulated people by pulling their heart stings for empathy points.

Then I saw she was a friend with batty. I lost even what little shred of respect I had for batty when I saw that. Batty will do ANYTHING for more publicity points. It's pathetic what people will do for 5 more seconds of e-fame.
>>
>>9442849
Yeah the owner got jealous of one of the guys she was seeing and attempted to accidentally drown him by swift kicking him in the nose while going down a 4 man ride at sunsplash, gave the guy a severe concussion, and forced him under the raft. It was played off as an accident but he's never trusted or talked to them again. Which is good cause I heard it got worse later on with her and them.

>>9451404
This.

Honestly if anyone is going to do a good job planning, it'll be H
>>
>>9451410
From what I can gather, it depends. Normally they don't mind normie clothes so long as it looks decent and nice. ILD is one of the exceptions that lolita is required unless it's boyfriends, then they have to dress nicely.
>>
>>9449146
there is actually a bara cafe at PCC. Its pretty alright.
>>
>>9448143
Well, what do you even want for panels?

Like yeah, there are definitely a shit ton of ask a fandom shit. But that's literally because no one else decides they want to submit anything.

And then those that actually do put effort into their panels get shafted with probably the worst time slots. Either first panel of the day on the first day, during major events like the masquerade, or even the last time slots of the con.
>>
>>9453190
I would like to see more workshop type of panels, general cosplay photography what to do and not to do panels, general help panels rather then auction off the cheracter panels. Panels where the guests actually show you how to accomplish things. Project panels like where there's a cover fee for supplies to have a hands on learning session is nice. All the con needs to do is take one of the programs of the bigger more popular conventions and see what they do. Personally I wish there where more media and gaming presence over clubs and groups like the umbrella guys or the larping guys. No one cares about cosplay groups yet they get panels and events.
>>
>>9453196
I definitely feel like those kind of panels are best run by people that actually know what they are doing. But, the trade off there is that those people already have a shit ton of work to do already making cosplay and what not.

I feel my biggest gripe with it, is that programming directors seem to give little to no fucks about what the programming really is. And just give slots out to whoever submits first. I've heard that some of the bigger and more popular cons actually have a screening process for that kind of stuff.
>>
>>9453209
I wish we where like the bigger cons and had better screening processes. I mean the shitty fandom panels can be a preview day thing or a late at night thing. But it seems that late at night is when the panels are that rocky horror shit and lewd kings game slots. I don't mine lewd panels but not cringy shit like kings game and shadow caster repo or rocky horror. Maybe lewd panels like "know your Hentai" "fandom in the porn industry" would be nice. Hell even live model sketching sessions would be nice for people who like the art spectrum. Panels on how to photoshop, sai even would be better then "ask love live " panels. Stuff people can actually take home with them be it physical or educational.
>>
>>9451261
I'm pretty excited. Last ILD was nice and full of fun activities and prizes. This one looks like it will be as well. I dont get all of the bitching about it?

Plus the theme is sweet so I'm looking forward to that and planning my coord.
>>
So what's the deal with Zapcon? It looks fun in theory, but will I be wasting $20 just to stand around waiting for 5 minutes of playing an old arcade game? Would I just be better off going to a regular arcade, or is there a reasonable amount of people to be able to fully enjoy the games?
>>

>>9453747
It just looks like a weekend of pinball/game tournaments.
Basically the game room of a con.
Doesn't look too worth it unless you really like pinball.
Def probably not a cosplay thing
>>
>>9453948
Not really looking to cosplay there just wondering if it's worthwhile to go for the games or if it's just going to be a lot of standing around waiting for your turn.
>>
>>9453695
It looks like fun and most of the bitching seems to be about other things rather then the meet. My only problem is I don't wear sweet and have no intention to wear sweet so the theme isn't something I'll participate in. No point on buying a sweet print you don't like just to wear it for a day.
>>
>>9454384
I remember last ILD there were three categories for the coord contest. There was the "best overall" category and the winners were not dressed to the theme. I don't think everyone will do that anyway, so just wear your best summery coord and have fun.
>>
>>9453257
I've been griping for more educational panels that actually teaches useful information like the stuff you mentioned. I submitted some panels about some pop cultural Japanese stuff before, but it got rejected.
>>
>>9454576
did you submit to a greg con? Taiyou seems more open to culture panels
>>
>>9454576
If Phoenix wants to get to the other conventions level they need to listen to what the fans want. But they would rather play it cheap and rehash stale programming. I mean I never really cared much for the guests that where attending. Although the new anouncment of dick van dyke is nice. I honestly thought he was dead because he's soo damned old and only appeals to a older crowd. I don't know about you, but I don't think a bunch of snow birds that never went back are going to go to a comic con. What makes the other conventions soo memerable is the ever changing ideas and current things trending and the ability to learn or get something on return from the conventions. it would be nice to not go " oh look it's a side cheracter from arrow,powerangers, an old doctor who companion from the 60s" it's even worse with voice actors since it's old has been actors that are doing obscure anime and videogames no one has heard about. Then you get that random big time celebrity that actually is worth your time but does it really make it a good con? No. You could go there just the one day to see the celebrity and leave. There nothing to keep you interested in the pannels and nothing to look forward to.

from what I know, PCC really dropped the ball on panels this year. And what it also seems like, is they are REALLY cutting back on anime programming. I've seen the programming list and it bothers me that a majority of panels have to do with some sort of shitty gender studies and fandoms.

I'm a really big fan of game show type panels. There's guaranteed interaction and depending on the panelist, you can usually leave with stuff.
