>What cosplay are you preparing right now?

Bonus question:

Don't derail please.
>>
>>9614594

>if you could have any guest for a con, who would it be?

I'd kill to have J. Hart Design at a con. His tailoring is impeccable.

And as an impossible dream, maybe an actual costume designer? Someone like Michelle Carragher, Colleen Atwood, or Gabriella Pescucci.
>>
>>9614594
Laura Gilbert
>>
So bekes a piece of shit right? That's how this works right?
>>
>>9614624
nice joke, anon
>>
>>9614624
You shouldn't be looking up to her a cosplayer OR wanting her as a guest at any con, anon. What's her talent and skill set? Happening to look like Margot Robbie?
>>
>>9614696
Someone is salty because they don't look like the perfect american actress
>>
>>9614699
She's an Australian actress, dumbass
>>
>>9614594
who else hate nichamelen now?
she was decent now a sell out
her new photo is the biggest lie she has told herself
shes not suddenly body confident shes been doing half naked photos for years
she literally want attention and can get it by being implied nude claiming body love
>>
>>9614594
>if you could have any guest for a con, who would it be?
I got Kojima at RTX Sydney so I don't really know who else I would want but Anno.
>>
>>9614750
Pretty much.
>>
>>9614699
Sure, call me salty. I just wanna know; why are people praising her for being such a good cosplayer though?
>>
>>9614594
Why was the eb expo moved back to qld

I was going to go but fuck going there
>>
devil eli sounds abt right she looks like she's going to fucking kill someone
>>
>>9614881
What the fuck are you doing? The last thread was pretty wholesome and enjoyable and now you salty fucks are bashing people again for being creative and having fun? JUST STOP ALREADY, WERE THE SALTIEST COMMUNITY HERE


moving on, list your top 3 favourite cosplayers!! Let's keep this nice
>>
>>9614696
I mean, she is a mega sweetheart and is always striving to perfect her cosplay(s)
>>
>>9614915
>now you salty fucks are bashing people again for being creative and having fun
Spotted the new fag, you just pretty much summarized 4chan in one phrase
>>
>>9614696
I wouldn't give a shit about her if she just kept up the Margot Robbie lookalike. But, shes done other Harleys, moving onto other cosplays and is changing her hair up soon, so she's moving away from it which is really great to see
>>
>>9614786
EB Expo was originally held on the gold coast before it was opened to the public
>>
>>9614771
You raise a good point but Laura is actually really sweet and hasn't let the fame go to her head. There are so many cosplayers out there that deserve that kind of attention
>>
>>9615025
I knew that it was originally held in QLD and still doesnt answer my question
>>
>>9615037
Then why not ask those who run ebexpo for the changes coz you're not gonna get an answer here anon
>>
>>9614917
nayrt but go bitch to her face if you're so upset about her cosplay. I'm sick of these threads being a cesspool for people's vendetta.
>>
>>9614594
>What cosplay are you preparing right now?
secret
>Name a cosplayer you look up to?
TT Costuming
>What's EB Expo like?
no idea

>>
>>9614915
If you wanted nice, you wouldn't come to cgl lol go somewhere else

>>9614881
I'm actually so sick of her makeup, she needs variety. She probably liked her shitty Levi makeup and stuck with it for e v e r y cosplay. Eg, look at her Nico. Scary shit.
>>
>>9615366
We could tell her straight up with some constructive criticism but she'll probably just take it as a hater comment lol "ignore the haterz!!" "I'm just having fun xDD"
>>
>>9615033
>hasn't let fame get to her head

are you new? she literally started a gofundme to fund her trip to brisnova back when she first 'hit the big time'
>>
>>9615702
Yeah, she probably took advantage of the following she has but personality wise she's still down to earth and so lovely. I mean, wouldn't you take advantage of it too? It's not like she demanded they money.
>>
>>9615640
I would love to see you do better, anon. Makeup isn't easy
>>
>>9615640
What a fucking copout. Aboobloo ~this is 4chan~ we're all mean and edgy here! We all have no control over what we say, we can't help but be insufferably bitchy just because it's 4chan!
>>
>>9615640
she paid for views on her Facebook page lmao
>>
>>9615741
People will be mean when their name and face aren't associated with their comments, anon. I don't know what else you expected. Personally I try to be positive, but it's unrealistic to expect people to be courteous and polite when they're hiding behind a computer screen.
>>
>>9615792
not anon but I've been OP here several times, I personally don't mind a bit of toxicity but I wish some anons wouldn't dredge up the same crap that's always posted here and completely derails the thread, it's like they're purposely trying to get these threads removed
>>
>>9615741
Yeah don't worry mate, this thread in particular is full of the biggest pussies. Bunch of pencil neck losers, you'd probably smash them with one arm. The only attack they can do is Ctrl Alt Delete. They don't have the balls to talk shit in person - they'd probably run away from you even if you were a little kid, as they're mental midgets with a weak mindset.
>>
>>9614594
>if you could have any guest for a con, who would it be?
Sakamoto Maaya. She's worked on lots of my favourite things plus the VA/singer double combo! That or one of my fave chara designers but she's not well known so I doubt it ever happening.

>What cosplay are you preparing right now?
I'm a mess with plans right now...too many haha.
>Name a cosplayer you look up to?
Errrr that's difficult, I like Ying Tze because she works fast but still creates quality stuff.
>What's EB Expo like?
Never been/not in my state
>>
>>9615940
Yep I 100% know who you are.
>>
Nah you don't faggot. Fight me bitch. What letter does my name start with?
>>
>>9615944
Lol! If you do, I'm kinda curious... PM me on whatever, and we can discuss this like men, and no troll persona.
>>
>>9614615
>if you could have any guest for a con, who would it be?

Tim Souter Photography. What a great photographer and a really nice guy
>>
>>9615997
call him out. he's clearly scared.
>>
Scared? Lol, why would I be scared? I've been in many fights in my life, been beaten up and been bashed up and even though I'm past that stage in my life and am more mature, you probably couldn't even beat up a little kid.

Even if they knew who I was and had a problem with me, they would do fuck all in person. Anyone who knows me irl knows I'm the last person you want to make an enemy of. I'm just curious on whether this person has me on any social media, and if they do, then we should talk because I'm curious on who they are.
>>
*bashed people up and been beaten up
>>
>>9616020
I second this
>>
>>9616060
Lol, yeah I'm scared alright. I'm quaking in my boots of what some pussies who I don't even know think of me. Absolutely terrified, and that you'll come up to me to talk shit and that I might have to strangle you unconscious and put you to sleep like a baby. The thought of that absolutely terrifies me, you bitch pussy lol. You bitches amuse me. Dance for me, pussy.
>>
>>9616069
do you just copy + paste your spiel every time you appear in this thread
>>
>>9614594
>What cosplay are you preparing right now?
Animaga competition piece. Hoping to kick the asses of shitty taobao LoveLive cosplayers, since I know for a Fact that there are groups entering in bought costume. Apologies in advance to anybody who asks for a pic of meand decides flash photography is a good idea.

>Name a cosplayer you look up to?
Locally, Eminery and Fierce Scarlet. They're real cute. Internationally... Cifera and Demoiselle. I don't really follow anybody else.

>What's EB Expo like?
Never been

Bonus question:
>if you could have any guest for a con, who would it be?
Me because I'm poor, gimme free flights accommodation con passes
>>
>>9616069
Run straight. I'll see you at nova unless you really are scared
>>
>>9616507
Ohhhh so this anons from Sydney? Interesting :)
>>
photos of good cosplays from smash ? i didn't go and all i see on my feed are friends who went.
>>
>>9616621
Check the smash 2017 events page. It's choke full of cosplay photos. No point asking it here
>>
>>9616069
>>9616037
>>9616035
>>9615997
>>9615981
Mate.
Settle the fuck down.
It's like you only post here on leg day.
>>
if you see someone abuse the photoshop liquify tool, then try and pass it off as "just how I look"

Do you call them out or not?

Discuss

this is relating to cosplayers who photoshop their tits bigger and give themselves wobbly wobbly arms and surrounding walls n shit.
>>
>>9616704
Holy shit. Is it Zeek? Now that you mention it, it does sound a lot like him.
>>
>>9616507
You'll see me at Nova? Yeah, you'll see me at Nova alright and then run the other way because you're a pussy bitch.
You'll think about stepping up, but then choke in fear for each step you take towards me, and then back down. Because you know you're a weak minded gossip queen drama bitch. And you know that if you tried anything funny that I would strangle you like the little bitch that you are. You'll feel yourself slowly losing consciousness as I choke your pencil size neck, and then in approximately 3-4 seconds, the lights would go out for you if you don't submit. You'll see nothing but darkness, and then come back to life in about 20-30 seconds wondering what just happened. I have left nothing but fallen bodies in my wake. Just know that I have the right to self defense if you even touch me, and I will invoke it if you so much as touch me.

>>9616090
Yes I do mate. Anything to derail this thread.

>>9616823
Who is Zeek? I have no idea who that man is, quite frankly, I don't really care.

>>9616704
I post here whenever I feel like it, and that is usually when vendetta spills and I feel like trolling a bunch of drama queen bitches and putting them in their place, back on the ground like the pieces of shit they are lol.
>>
>>9616836
Tough guy alert
>>
>>9616507
To further add to the description of being choked. Step up to me at Nova and wanna try something funny? I'll invoke my right to self defense.
I'll make sure that I take your oxygen for those few lovely seconds. You will be unable to breathe. It will only take a few seconds for you to fall unconscious. In those few seconds, you will be begging for air, wondering why you're a drama whore and started this pointless feud. Gasping. You have the choice to submit, and apologise. I will allow you that choice during the choke, when I squeeze your puny neck like the bitch that you are, a gossip bitch who clearly doesn't lift. Fucking stick insect bitch. FUCK YOU BITCH. FUCKING DRAMA BITCH PUSSY.

You are nothing to me but another target. I will wipe you the fuck out if you walk up on me and wanna act like a tough guy. Trying to intimidate me. Get the fuck out. You think you're so tough huh? You think you scare me? You think you're a terrorist?
>>
I can't believe people still fumble around trying to argue with troll-chan

How fucking new are you people, lol
>>
>>9616857
Ohboy
>>
>>9616857
I get second hand embarrassment from reading these
>>
>>9616858
Makes me wonder if you and troll fag are one and the same.
>>
>>9616929
Nah lol. Troll-chan just established he's going to punch on at supanova, and my local nova was back in april :^)
>>
>>9616929
nayrt but there's no point arguing m8. Troll-chan has been derailing these awful threads for months.
>>
>>9616936
Lol someone should record this tough anon. Doubt it will happen anyway coz not even troll fag will show himself.
>>9616936
I don't go on CGL often so it's silly to bother why troll fag bothers to do this. There will always be that one drama post which then escalated to more than 1.
>>
Come on guys, let's get back on topic.
What are you looking forward to seeing at Bris and Syd Ozcc?
>>
>>9616989
Wish I could go to ozcc in Sydney but work is getting hectic.
>>
>>9616989

Actually sort of excited to see Jenna Coleman. I'm one of the few who didn't particularly enjoy her in Doctor Who but loved BBC'S Victoria. So I'll check out her session.
>>
>>9616836
Yeh bitch I Know who you are. Your name ends in a y
>>
>>9617050
Lol. Nice try pussy boy.
I'm going to guess your name ends in y though: you fucking "Pussy" bitch. Or maybe a h, you "Bitch". Fuck outta here you bitch ass pussy.

>>9616936
Nah mate. I won't be punching on with anyone. I will only invoke my right to self defense if that guy I responded to in my descriptive response or whoever the fuck wants to step up to my face and try some funny shit at Supanova. Talking about seeing me at Supanova. That bitch wants to act like a tough guy. That little bitch who I'd choke unconscious. Fuck that guy. That piece of shit garbage can who thinks he's so tough. That bitch couldn't even fight his way out of a paper bag. Fucking tough guy bitch. He's tough in the sense that they got a tough pussy which reeks of drama whore sluts.
>>
Anyway, I'll probably get banned in a day or so, whenever the admins check this thread.

So before that, I just want to tell all you drama whore bitches before the inevitable ban:

FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>
>>9616947
I go on these threads and completely derail it just because it's fun to piss these guys off. Much more satisfying than pissing off the average person - these drama whore bitches who post vendetta posts actually deserve to be shit on, unlike the average person. They also take the bait about 90% of the time lol.
>>
>>9617078
Perhaps but don't you suppose consider that it ends up being fruitless with the nonsense? Yeah drama is just shit but what you're doing is no better. It's just sad
>>
>>9617088
I'd actually disagree. Because Troll-San is so OTT and rediculous, it paints how much of a joke the Aus thread really is and honestly, I appreciate their endeavours to try and make our shitty com a slightly less salty place.

Troll-San I enjoy your company. I hope you're well.

i cant believe i thought nichameleons danearys was bad
compared to bekes its passable
bekes is the worst sluttiest thing i have seen
look girls we know you want an excuse to get naked for likes but dont ruin the character
>>
>>9619202
Sorry but I actually really like the shots from bekkes daenerys. The wig could be better though
>>
>>9619202
Bit of a dog move that she shot with the same photographer tho
>>
>>9619202
How can she ruin the character when Dany has gone naked a few times in the show. Just saying
>>
Can we get some more positivity / actual photos to compliment or critique in here? I liked what the anon on the previous thread did by posting pics of cosplays and saying what they liked about it, so I'll do that too.
>>
>>9619845
Starting off with Taigakunn because I saw an anon mention her earlier in this thread. Her Zinogre armour is really impressive and I adore the paint job on it. She's also a really neat artist and her character designs are always cool!
>>
>>9619848
One of my favourite cosplayers will always be AmenoKitarou. I'm super excited to see the end result of his Bahamut. One of my favourite cosplays of his is his Young Genji.
>>
>>9619854
Samuryan Cosplay has the most perfect face, and he always kills in it every cosplay he does. My favourite is his King Thranduil. That armour is so nicely done!
>>
>>9619859
Elle Norton Cosplay is somewhat underrated, but her LNY Mei is adorable. She made it all herself too, and won Best-in-show at Goldnova iirc. She's working on Beekeeper Mei right now, which I'm looking forward to!
>>
>>9619862
I've always been a fan of OMG That's A Dude Cosplay's Pokemon gijinkas. He adds a more traditional Chinese (correct me if I'm wrong) flair to his designs. My favourite of his is Seaking.
>>
>>9619866
Another kinda unknown cosplayer, but Nguran Cosplay is one of my favourite armour builders. It's hard to pick a favourite cosplay of his, so he gets two posts! First up is his Sindragosa. Just look at the detail of the scales.
>>
>>9619869
Second is his General Wu Kong. Not only is his armour fantastic, but I love what he did with the face.
>>
>>9619871
Ahhh I can't bring up armour without also mentioning Piltover City Customs. He makes a mean Soldier 76 but I like his Uther the most.
>>
>>9619875
Artemis Cosplay has done some really good metal and prop work. She also pulls off fake beards well too (pun intended?)
>>
>>9619878
I may catch some flack for this, but I really admire the Guzzardi twins. Yes, I do agree that sometimes their make-up is a bit too heavy for the characters they're cosplaying, but for series such as Borderlands or Legend of Zelda it works well. Their actual cosplay costumes are always really crafted well and detailed too.
>>
>>9619881
I really do think Major Sam is one of Australia's best cosplay seamstresses. We've all heaped praise upon her Julietta Necromancer and her La Carlotta, so I'll mention her Miss Kitty instead. It's simple but also elegant.
>>
>>9619887
One of my favourite cosplay duos is xxpuffy and Mangalphantom. They're good at both sewing and crafting, and their MNCC entries are always entertaining. Not the most flattering photo, but their Me!Me!Me! cosplays are my favourite.
>>
>>9619897
Okay I'll wrap it up here. Feel free to add on your favourite cosplayers. I think focussing on positives more than negatives is always fun, anyway!
>>
>>9619900

Thank you anon. Balanced critiques shouldn't be shied away from either though
>>
>>9619914
Oh no, of course not! I just meant that specifically in this thread we always seem more inclined to bash than to critique. Just cos I want a lil more positivity doesn't mean we shouldn't be able to offer good criticism either.
>>
>>9619749
>>9619216
>>9619206
its beke and nic.
how can they not ruin a character by slutifying the character with poses they would never do.
>>
>>9620010
I agree. I'm a fan of her and shes not a whore like those two made her out to be. They could have been classier with the poses rather than looking like they did it for an excuse to get naked.
>>
>>9619900
Thanks for those wholesome posts. Seriously.
>>
>>9619900
Most of them I agree. Of course positive posts are always good
>>
>>9620015
I feel like nic's was a whole lot more tasteful, and she actually looks like the character. beke just looks like a skank in the middle of the woods grabbing herself. Very sexualised..

And the fact that beke almost immediately copied her idea is pretty shit
>>
>>9619881
Yeah I'm actually a big fan of a lot of their non-anime cosplays, especially these ones. They have a really interesting way of weathering their props. I quite like it.
>>
>>9620077
amen!
i dont like nichameleon anymore but hers is better than bekes
you described bekes photoshoot perfectly
nichameleon is trying to be someone she isnt
>>
>>9620097
Nic's been somewhat lewd for years with her pokemon gijinkas and whatnot. People only think she's all innocent because she has a 'girl nextdoor' look to her.

Anyone else see bekes status about how she works hard for her cosplays and that she's not a cop out for making Patreon?

Tell me what the hell shes had to work hard for?

To anyone from smashcon last month, did anyone see a tall asian girl with black hair"5'11-6"0" wearing a I think a blue/black stary/galaxy angelic pretty cord?

>>9620373
Literally every SEMI-attractive Asian girl already has a bf, ESPECIALLY cosplaying ones.
>>
>>9619887
That's a mouse dude. She's an unamed singer from basil the great mouse detective and also my fave outfit if najor sam. Childhood goals.
>>
>>9621393
Okay I've give up, scanned like over 1-2k images via ink361 & fb. Haven't found her.

Also other clue: medium to short black hair and maybe my memory of what she was wearing was off. Maybe it was a gothic lolita cord, either way she was pretty and tall. Oh well feelsbadman ;_;
>>
>>9621383
Still has dem thicc hips and thighs tho! She must be waist training or some shit
>>
>>9621409
That or are lesbians

where are the single cutie cosplaying lesbian girls in this comm pls, I'm lonely
>>
anyone else sick of hench wench always wearing the same overwatch cosplay to hide how fat she is?
>>
>>9621477
No. She's talented and her cosplays are good. For once can we stop giving a shit about who the ~~sexy cosplayers~~ are, considering that's what gives rise to batshit crazy bitches like beke and her kind?
>>
>>9621452
I ghostwrote this post

do you even understand what thicc is?
the term is now being used for obese women and skinny girls its insulting

There could not be anything less interesting about the conversation you guys are having about whether one girl is better than another girl. This shit gets rehashed every single thread, derails it, and ultimately kills it.

NOBODY. GIVES. A. SHIT.

Except obviously you dumbasses, so once again: make your own thread about Generic Girl A vs. Generic Girl B and whose faces/tits/ass/whatthefuckever you prefer and stay out of Australian threads forever with your boring-ass repetitive circlejerking, thanks. Can we get back to relevant stuff? For the love of god?

On that note, I'm a relatively unknown cosplayer but I'm hoping to do a pretty ambitious project over the next.... however long (one for myself and my partner, full armour) and I was considering entering a competition to see how I go. I'm not hyper competitive so I feel like it'll be fun to show off for once.
What's your fave competition of the season? Bonus points for actual good judging.

Unfortunately when you remove those people there are about 3 people total in this thread. You have to remember, in an anonymous forum there's not really room for technical posts due to the fact the thread dies every week.

>>9622699

If you're confident, I'd say go for the Oz Comic-Con Championships of Cosplay (or Cosplay Active for a little less stress).

The Supanova comps have lax pre-judging that consists on the judges walking around you and asking questions when you're in line about to go in. Not great.

I don't have any experience in the other comps, though, and would love to hear from other anons that do. Some are quite specific about their categories though (skit required, anime only etc) so keep that in mind.
>>
>>9614594
Who remembers that time a cosplayer entered Enchantress in a cosplay competition?
I have never seen a crowd laugh harder.
>>
>>9622699
The only comps I have experience in are Animaga and OZCC Cosplay Active, Animaga is definitely more relaxed "we like whoever has the prettier costume/whoever does the best Love Live dance" so not really a good place for armor builds imo (unless it's like... Tone Rion from VOCALOID), but Cosplay Active is a good open level comp for costumes that aren't just sparkly cute idol shit.

I took out Best Skit in Melbourne's CA this year with a transforming dress I made in three weeks, best group went to a couple of kids in splatoon costumes but thats prooobably only because the other groups they were up against were Shitty Taobao Love Live Pair #1, Shitty Taobao Love Live Pair #2, inaccurate and poorly made Aikatsu pair, and boring looking eveelution pair. I feel like if you and your partner went in with decently made armor sets you'd have a good chance of taking out a title.

Judging was done by Artemis who is skilled in textiles and Lumin who is skilled in armor, so I feel it was pretty fair that we were judged by people who are Actually into costuming, and it wasn't biased toward one medium or the other
>>
>>9623274
Oh damn, if OZCC Syd weren't so soon I'd consider. Oh well, next year.

Weird about the (anime only) requirements, but I guess if the con was an anime only con that'd make sense.

>>9623523
Thanks, mate. Good to hear judging was pretty balanced.
Congrats on winning, transforming dressing are freaking bomb.

Very, very few. Most of them are taken.

>>9623489
I saw an awkward Enchantress a while ago. I'm not sure if we are thinking of the same person but she entered in Comic-Con? I saw her back stage and she was exceedingly insecure and the costume looked like the entire thing was hot glued.

I've always enjoyed going both days more than other cons, but that's probably because I'm a big weeaboo who doesn't care for what supa/ozcc have to offer, and I prefer buying a lot of stuff from artists rather than overpriced vendor booths. We didn't really have any other anime cons since Manifest ended until Madfest became a thing.

It depends on how much you like anime shit I guess

Why is the child going to have a fucked up upbringing? oh because they're not conforming to the way you would like them to? Dress the way you want people to dress? A guy is in a dress and a woman is in pants and whatnot, nope the kid is having an amazing upbringing and one which was obviously better than your narrow-minded, bigoted way.

Back on topic. How do aus gulls feel about people entering cosplay competitions with costumes they bought online? Do you hate them? Do you think theres no problem with it? Personally I fucking hate anybody who enters with bought costumes, theres confirmed at least two groups in Animagas comp this coming Saturday who are wearing taobao costumes and I'm gonna fucking kill myself either with my sewing machine or one of my many tubes of super glue.
>>
>>9627086

Agreed. I hate it too. Most comps will judge on construction /and/ performance, so it feels like cheating. I guess if you're just going for something like Best Skit it's okay, but I'm still not a fan. But I watch competitions to see crastmanship skill, and I understand others might want different things out of comps, like great choreography, dance skills, or a great in-character performance. And for these people, having contestants make their own costumes might not be such a big deal.
>>
What are you looking forward to see at Animaga this weekend?
>>
>>9627331
ntayrt but I wouldn't be half as mad if they choreographed their own dance to a song that doesn't have one.

Wait, how do people do this? I thought you HAD to make your costume to enter? How is it fair if people who don't make their outfits can compete? I'm paying for a professional to make me an outfit because I cant sew for shit but I'm not entering anything no matter how cool it looks because it's not my work - i just threw money at talented people
>>
>>9627506

Aww, I don't think you're a bitch at all. Just frustrated. Was it at least performed decently? I'm trying to think of positives of store bought costumes and copied choreography. It would have taken a lot of effort to coordinate all the people involved?

I've been going to cons since 201...2, and even back then comps had the rule that "you have to have made your own costume, OR if you wear a bought one, you're only eligible for best skit" which back then, skits were more scripted fanservice plays. Fast forward 5 and a half years, the skit loophole still exists, and Love Live is wildly popular with easy to learn dances and costumes on the cheap.

Plus with LL fans being such attn whores wanting to become ~real net idols!~ ~the next A-muse!~ for their city (disclaimer I actually like A-muse since they're genuinely talented and make their costumes), they take the loophole and run with it as an excuse to be allowed to get up on a stage with an audience sitting there willing to watch them, why go outside to perform if you can't guarantee a large crowd ri~ght? For cons where bought can only get best skit it's kinda whatever at this point (since nobody does skits anymore, it's almost always only LL cosplayers in their taobao costumes dancing), But from how I've been comprehending Animagas comp rules, it's a points based system where anybody can take any title, it's a matter of who gets the most points, bought or made. I haven't been working nonstop on my costume for the past 10 days just to have a teetering chance of being beat by a bunch of teens who just want internet fame for 0 effort.

I've said it once I'll say it a billion times. Madfests community stage is the perfect thing to combat bought costumes being entered into competitons, they still get their stage and audience without having to take spaces from people who made their stuff. I'm not even kidding with that, Animagas Saturday competition had every slot filled last Tuesday, and there were only 10 spaces left for Sunday's competition as of then as well. If Musoka and SQ.Idols weren't such selfish cunts there would be space for two more people who Actually worked hard on their costumes.

Sorry for the blogpost I'm just really tired of this.
>>
>>9627602
completely agree with you here
sick of seeing cosplay competitions completely oversaturated with love live groups - its a cosplay competition, not a dance contest.
these groups just want a stage to dance on and an audience to watch, they dont have any care about competing whatsoever.
its taking the stage away from people who spend months on craftsmanship, as im assuming you have, just so they get a chance to 'debut' their 'idol group'.
if you're that desperate for an audience go dance outside with a portable speaker.
sick and tired of it and cons need to start cracking down on it because im getting reluctant to enter competitions anymore

Don't worry Anon I know, I mentioned in my recent post here that im a fan of A-Muse since they make their own costumes, and Aquaria makes theirs as well right? My anger is referring exclusively to people like this, who buy taobao costumes to wear in cos comps, which more often than not is just Love Live groups wanting to have a stage to dance on since they don't want to go dance outside.

My point isnt UGH LOVE LIVE COSPLAYERS SHOULDNT ENTER COMPS its more UGH PEOPLE WHO BUY COSTUMES SHOULDNT ENTER COMPS AND ITS ALWAYS LOVE LIVE

>>
>>9627658
I'm a fan of A-muse and Aquaria too, I also like Stelluna. I think there was a Love live group with bought costumes that entered the comp at Perth Nova. I completely agree with you, people with bought costumes shouldn't enter the contest.

>>
>>9627658
I adore Aquaria. They're such nice girls.

I don't think I feel as strongly about people in bought cosplays entering competitions, but I can understand where you're coming from, seeing as there's such a disparity in effort between the entrants who make their costumes and the ones who don't. If you've bought your costume, and you haven't choreographed your own skit, people aren't going to be as interested in your skillsets because it doesn't take a lot of talent to stand on a stage bearing someone else's hard work.

I wish the other Love Live dance cover groups would realise the whole reason Aquaria and A-muse are finding success is because their hard work isn't just limited to turning up to dance practices once a fortnight.
>>
>>9627706
>>9627742
>>9627658
Yeah, it's nice seeing groups like A-muse, Aquaria and Stelluna that make their costumes but even then it's not hard to message a convention and ask for a bit of stage time that's outside of the competition. Definitely something more love live groups should do.

I think Madfest is the only con that would give them the stage time, I think Nova has before but I don't know if they do anymore. I do agree with you though. I wish more cons would allow time for performances because I know that a few people do enjoy them, and I would love to watch more performances at cons.
>>
>>9628355
Floating an idea... ditch the random wrestling and use the space for a small stage for people to perform on. Supanova could vet the performances in advance, and it's not like they'd make more noise than the smack of beefy men hitting the ring.
>>
>>9628359
I've always wondered why there's a wrestling segment at supanova? How on earth did that get brought up as an idea in place of actual pop culture related things?
>>
>>9628361
Right? It's always seemed massively out of place to me. I guess it draws a crowd, but I have a feeling a performance space would too.
>>
>>9628361
>>9628373
I've always found it weird too, and speaking for melbnova, it's the perfect place for a community stage. Not smack bang in the middle of any vendors, right by where madmans almost always parked every year so they can plug LL. It gives idol groups more time too, rather than a 3-5min time limit in comps and only doing one song, they can have a 15-30 minute time slot to do their stuff.

Wresting isn't scheduled to go on all day as well isn't it? Whereas they can get an endless stream of community performances each day with pre-applications.
>>
>>9628395
I should add its not just good for idol performances too, there can be quick workshops for things like hand embroidery and wig styling, there can be scripted performances, you name it as long as an application is submitted to the con beforehand. Definitely a better idea than wrestling that most people don't care about anyway.
>>
>>9628395
>>9628396
There are also a lot of dance groups around Australia and I think they would love to perform at cons. It's just sad that Madfest is basically the only con allowing the time for performers to do so. I know it may not be down Comic Con's alley but I think they should also consider it also.
>>
>>9628359
Everyone I've spoken to, thinks the wrestling has no place at Nova. I respect the sport and the athletes but supanova isn't the right place
>>
>>9628115
Lol I was wondering what the fuck when at pax.
>>
>>9628396
Absolutely. Supanova is quite behind Oz Comic Con in regards to community-driven workshops. This would be a good chance to catch up.
>>
>>9628451
Is there a way to inform the cons about this stuff. I would really like there to be a change.
I feel as if Nova is falling behind when it comes to latest trends.
>>
>>9628458
Message them? Use their contact info or maybe start a community petition to draw attention to the issue?
>>
>>9628459
Yep contacting them and appealing to them to make changes to competition rules and showfloor attractions is probably the best way to go about it. It's easy for them to keep things going the same way they have for years but times have changed and it's really not accommodating to the current community interests and needs
>>
>>9628359
Glad I'm not the only one who agrees. The space for wrestling can be used for something else.
>>
Because nova needs even MORE love life performances
>>
>>9628480
It's not just about love live. There are many talented people who would like a chance to show off their stuff without disrupting the cosplay contest.
>>
>>9628480
Who cares? People are going to do it anyway. At least this way they won't be taking up space in the competitions with bought cosplays.

I don't know how to feel about A-muse. Their costumes are solid, but their dancing seems a bit wild? I saw their mogyutto love de sekkin dance practice, they look like they're having flailing and having seizures. Sometimes going hard with your moves doesn't suit the song.
>>
>>9629017
On Saturday I know there's me (angry comp anon), Musoka Live (taobao Kunoichi Love Live group), SQ.Idols (taobao Halloween Guilty Kiss group), yukibunnacosplay (Chitoge from Nisekoi), that's all the mentions of competing I could see in the tag on ig. No doubt there's tons more considering all the slots were taken.
>>
>>9629390
Cool, thanks! I'll be sure to cheer for angry handmade costume anon on Saturday :)
I'm entering Sunday & wouldn't mind sussing out my competition lol

>>
>>9629394
Good luck anon! Here's hoping the comps wont be too overfilled with bought costumes and that the only people who take out titles each day are wearing handmade.

>>9629202
Oop forgot to reply to you in my last post. I agree-- A-muse has top costumes and they're really high energy with their dancing, but they need to work on making their movements more precise and fitting to the tempo and mood of the song rather than just flailing their limbs out in the general direction they're meant to go. It seems that with a lot of odorites, especially outside of Japan, they either dont put enough energy into their movements or they put WAY too much.
>>
>>9629202
>>9629396
I agree, though their Kimi no Kokoro was actually pretty good. But I feel as if Aquaria and Stelluna may out shine them soon, not that it's a competition or anything. Their movements are just more clear.
>>
>>9629435
I haven't really heard much about Stelluna. Whereabouts are they based? My comm seems to be dominated by A-muse and Aquaria. I might check them out.

>>
>>9630434
Stupid rules? Animaga's skit time limit. I'm dancing (I know, I know) on Saturday in order to be eligible for as many points and categories as possible, group entrants get 5 minutes time limit, but solos only get 3?! It's really annoying because I had to cut more than half of my song out, its not too big of a deal but at /least/ have the decency to make ALL skit time limits the same.

Just because I dont have a bunch of other people on stage with me doesn't mean my choreography is magically shorter than it would be if I had a group.
>>
>>9630446
3 minutes is plenty of time. No one wants to see 5 minute skits anyway. Supanova only has 2 mins skit time so be happy with what you have.
>>
>>9630451
Yeah it's plenty of time, but my salt lies in doing dances rather than play type skits, the fact that groups get 2 more minutes meaning they can usually just go with their whole song, meanwhile solo competitors have to jump through hoops editing the choreography and making new audio files just to make it work

I can see how a judge could pick one person from a group for being more outstanding than the others and rewarding them, but it'd probably cause a lot of drama with both the entering group internally and the group with the judges/organisers
>>
>>9630651
It's part of the compeition rules/system at evolve (Perth con) and it's always rubbed me the wrong way, if they want to award a singular person then there's always plenty of single entrants, people entering as a group are well, entering as a group, not individually, so why single one out? it's kind of a slap in the face to the other group members and solo entrants too, I guess that's one of the reasons they had no groups this year

>>
>>9631252
Are you by any chance the main organiser, because you sound exactly like him trying to defend his piss poor con on Facebook

Any attendee could tell there weren't enough people or traffic going past the tables for them to make the cost of their table back let alone profit

The con was just poorly thought out especially the venue/stage situation, there was a reason everyone was outside
>>
I want to go to animaga but I'm not a weeb.

I heard people are pretty toxic, I just want to dress up.
>>
>>9631300
Do what you want to do and fuck everyone else. If you think you'll enjoy yourself then go. Rarely are people cunts in person anon.
>>
>>9631303
is saturday or sunday better?
>>
>>9631300
>>9631303
Yeah, the people supposedly being toxic is probably just friend group drama. You'll have a decent time if you just dress up and check out the vendors.
>>
Is it too early to start talking about PAX Aus? It's the only con I go to every year, I was just curious what people are doing for it, what people did last year, liked about it, wanted to change, etc.
>>
>>9631323
Never too early for PAX talk. I don't normally do game cosplays, but I'm thinking of bringing a zelda cosplay this year. What have you got in mind for pax anon?
>>
>>9631323
I hope Riot pick some fresh faces for their competition. Last years comp was so biased it hurt.
>>
>>9631304
Maybe check out the schedule and see what interests you anon. I think both days are pretty similar imo.

Mega salty that all the group awards bar one went to bought costumes which considering the there WAS only four groups is kinda. Well. Also I wanna kill myself, but it's ok I guess
>>
>>9627602
Hi Tiana
>>
>>9632004
Can you give us the full salty rundown? I missed it & need the goss :)
>>
>>9632004
You won! Good job. Were all the love live groups mad though, that's the question
>>
>>9632013
I'm five feet tall and live in Melbourne, I mentioned animaga in my post and everything. Definitely not Tiana (who is 6 feet tall and lives in Queensland ffs!)
>>
>>9631272
Amen, brother!
>>
>>9632014
Honestly it wasn't suuuper salty, lots of performance entries. Winners for groups were
- skit, Subaru and Hokuto from Ensemble Stars
- honourable mention, squid kids (the same ones who got best group from ozcc)
- 3rd, SQ. Idols Guilty Kiss from love live
- 2nd, Bill and Dipper from gravity falls
- 1st, Musoka Live and their dance that honestly made me think the stage was going to break with how much it was shaking

That was all the groups who entered in the first place iirc so it was pretty obvious Musoka was gonna win

as for solos
- skit, Mogyutto Honoka from LL
- 3rd, some person with a massive coffin thing idfk
- 2nd, Erza Scarlet with an amazing armour build, honestly she deserved first
- 1st, my salty tired ass that panicked and forgot my dance half way throughout. YAY!

The prize for me was S.H figuarts Honoka (useless to me, I only like You from Aqours), ticket to Animenz concert (also probably useless to me), and a Lumins workshop coupon

>>9632019
I wish, but separating solos and groups totally ruined that sense of satisfaction for me
>>
>>9632029
Congrats on the win! (Even though the prizes weren't great)
I did see the Erza, she was great!

Overall standard was pretty average today, Taobao everywhere

Ah well, I'm hoping to work on Athena next year but I've never done any foam armour building so that should be interesting.

that feel when you want to go to animaga but you dont have anyone to go with you
>>
>That guy with the chiseled square jaw dressed up as Chaika
>Asian guy as Rem

This is my first Animaga, is this a regular thing? Insecure boys cosplaying as female characters?

At least have the right build for it holy shit, most of the boys doing it looked like they were in drag for a dare.
>>
>>9632127
A-are you me? Nothing beats awkwardly walking around by yourself.

Anybody know the names of the groupies doing the Senbonzakura Miku skit from yesterday?

>>9632127
I was always worried about being a loner when I first started going to cons, but it's surprisingly not too hard to make friends, especially if you're in cosplay too. Make an effort to chat to artist alley vendors too, but only if you're gonna buy something haha.

I'll be honest, it'll probably be an easier time making friends if you're a girl. But either way, just make an effort to compliment every cosplay you like. That's always the best way to start a conversation.
>>
>>9632645
>>9632572
i decided not to go.

i-i guess there's still pax
>>
Cosplay competitions are not dance competitions and most of these animaga contestants should probably start learning that. What a boring competition.
>>
>>9632803
I went there by myself. There seemed to be quite a few people alone by themselves as well; most of them were asian males.
>>
>>9632830
they were all fat and skeletons right?
>>
>>9632834
Not many fat people, mostly skeletons. Pretty much how asians are.
>>
>>9632838
were they dressed up though?

going solo not cosplaying seems a bit lonely
>>
>>9632840
Most of them weren't. I wasn't either, but you just have to make the best of it. I will probably go alone like that for madfest as well.
>>
>>9632841
how is madfest different from animaga?
>>
>>9632830
I beg to differ there were derro white people too with bad b/o
>>
>>9632843
is it true that most people who go to cons are ugly and or have b/o?
>>
>>9632844
Some. And also I agree, lots of love live groups for this contest. The first group which had 5 were good. The rest though not so much
>>
>>9632842
I haven't been to Madfest so I can't tell you, but from what I heard, it's pretty similar.
>>9632843
I didn't catch too many people with bad body odor, but that might be because I didn't stand too close to anyone. I only stayed for the morning as well, so that might have helped.
>>
>>9632844
Nah. Plus a lot of the cute girls there have BO too.

>>9632840
I've been to a few cons so far alone without cosplaying and I can guarantee you nobody gives a fuck.

>>9631323
My only problem with PAX from last year is the fact that most of the panel talks were pretty boring and, frankly, tame. If I wanted that shit I'd browse regular forums.

This year I'm doing Enigma from DotA and also Coldsteel the Hedgeheg.
>>
>>9632852
I'm going to find your Coldsteel and high-five the fuck out of you, that's brilliant.
>>
>>9632852
If you want good panels, go to the Penny Arcade panels, and any of the panels which are PAX regulars (like jackbox at paxbox, ones with devs and industry people, etc)
>>
>>9632846
Maybe. Although it's not as bad as novas, the ozcc and pax. Really really bad. Some congoers really need to do daily showers.
>>
>>9632842
Madfest is a lot bigger, better guests, panels, more traders, events etc etc. Animaga has the better maid cafe, and is good as a smaller more relaxed convention - artist alley is mostly shite though
>>
Faggots as far as the eye can seeeeee
>>
Who won the Animaga cosplay comp today?
>>
Ok can we talk about that guy who always goes to Melbourne conventions with those giant fucking bubbles??!!
>>
>>9632913
A Professor Elm cosplayer.
Pretty simple desu but had a cool pokemon trolley with signs and was the only one who actually stayed in character.
>>
>>9632934
it was simple but effective, i ran into him a number of times and as far as i know he stayed in character throughout the entire con.
>>
fking dance 'skits' and long ass time limits made the comp unbearable. why would you make skits 5 minutes long? are you that desperate to stretch out the comp?
the mc had no idea and just dragged out interviews until everyone involved seemed awkward af
>>
so were you actually allowed to enter both days of the competition or were they just desperate for sunday entrants? one dance group entered both days and won prizes each day. seems weird to me but who knows
>>
>>9632954
Yeah, you're allowed to as long as it's different characters. SQ entering again today is less to do with the con being desperate for entrants and more to do with that group of girls being desperate for attention. And I heard there were only 2 groups today? So they got prizes by default today since even though they came last in their category, they couldn't be any worse than 2nd.

They got prizes by default on Saturday as well, there's 4 group prizes, there was 5 groups, the only group that didn't get an award was the squid kids and that almost definitely has to do with them having taken out a title for the same thing at OzCC
>>
>>9632928
Yea found it odd with a guy who has a bubble fetish but he's seem and known for that. He's annoying at times coz he gets in the way
>>
>>9632573
The ones who did a dance outside the front area where the cars were?
>>
>>9632828
Guess I'm not the only one who thinks this. I guess it's easier for them to do dance performances than actual skits.

>omg they made their skin tone darker with makeup
>LITERAL BLACKFACE

oh my god, shut the fuck up. what people like you consider blackface is nothing what actual blackface is.

for something to be the "OMG EVIL WACIST" blackface, there must be intent to mock, degrade, or defile the subject material. original blackface presented this front and center by openly mocking black traits, such as painting the large red ring around their lips to simulate the lips of black people.

this is not blackface. there is no mocking of black features and there is no ill intent.

at most, this is a clumsy attempt at fitting more into the character, which while it may not have hit the mark, at least shows the cosplayer has respect for the source material.

should they have just not darkened their skin? probably, it would have at least prevented any unnecessary blackface discussion. but this is not a malicious action in the least bit, and people like you need to calm down.
>>
>>9634062
funny you're telling anon to calm down when you just lost your shit writing an essay trying to defend blackface.
>>
>>9634176

you've side-stepped the point entirely to score lefty points on the internet. you need to reconsider things.
>>
So by the sound of it, my vaultsuit I'm getting made up for me (I've run outta time to make one myself, and am no seamstress) may not be done in time for PAX melb, I'm mad rushing trying to get my Synth helmet cast, but sounds like I may just be going in casual with my tesla rifle :-( not what I wanted to do at all.

Inkks smile made my already awesome Animaga weekend, even more awesome!!!

>>9635261
Who are you?
>>
>>9635261
Which of her cosplays did you like the best, inkkfan? Did you manage to get a photo with her?
>>
>>9635450
My all time favorite among all her cosplays would be her Spider Gwen because she looks great in it and it suits her body so well. Second would be her Domino because she looks so badass in it. Then her Todoroki makeup is so good and her face shape is so similar to the anime that she's actually like Todoroki irl.
>>
>>9634062
Thank you
>>
>>9634062
blackface doesn't stop being bad just because you insist it isn't, anon. :^)
>>
>>9635525
Hahah I meant her cosplays at animaga

She suited both characters really well, I think. She's good at pulling off the crazy-cute anime girls.
>>
>>9636232
101% agree!!! Can't help staring at her anime cosplays. She's also great at pulling off character poses and always looks like having heaps of fun doing it.
>>
Ladies, how do you feel about guys who try to peek at your upskirts when you're cosplaying a character with a short anime skirt?
>>
>>9636405
Inb4 "you wore a short skirt so you DESERVE to be perved upon"
I personally hate it. Just because I'm wearing a short skirt doesn't invite you to stick your head there. I don't mind normal photos, I don't care about people looking from a distance, just don't invite yourself into my personal space to stare up my skirt.
>>
>>9636421
What about guys walking up, say, a metre away from you and pointing their phone up from under?
>>
>>9636435
obvious b8
>>
>>9636435
I'm sorry this happened to you anon, but this is a sad reality not only at cons but any crowded areas. If there were witnesses your best bet would be to report them to anyone with authority. Else you can confront them and tell them what they're doing is wrong and they should delete the photo. Not really much you can do so if you plan on cosplaying something that is even remotely risque, go with friends or hang out with a large group.
>>
>>9636605
Yeah, I always have at least 1 minder when I'm wearing something skimpy
>>
Anyone here make it onto the cover?
>>
>>9636405
I've only knowingly gotten upskirted once by an old Asian man I'm at OzCC. I was getting a photo against a window and he came up behind and started taking photos of my and my girlfriend... I'm making it a habit to wear shorts that say FUCK OFF now...

Did anyone at Briscoe today get video of that Mercy v Medic rap battle? I heard it was a cringe fest.
>>
>>9627742
dude aquaria have entered comps with bought costumes. the mijuku dreamer set was bought from taobao. Also these girls are popular because they have bullied girls who have been better or worse than them to the point where the bullied girls want to burn their cosplays.
>>
>>9638715
what's even more cringe was the mc's reaction to everything. she said she knew people going to complain about her so she said im going to go drink bleach

are you the same person that comes in with a tantrum whenever someone mentions aquaria, because holy shit go away
