I'm going to attend and cosplay at FanExpo Philadelphia this year. I was just wondering if anyone else was going to attend or if anyone's been there before.

2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Haven't gone any outside of SF, but from what I can tell from when I staffed at SF, they're a professional outfit. Market/AA tends to be crowded as shit.
I'm going to go there for the first time and am not sure what to expect
I've literally never been to a convention and the only weeb stuff I do is very limited and will surely not be here but I think I might go. Probably just Saturday or something. I'll bookmark the thread though and come back later to see if anyone wants to coordinate.

I have a custom made cockmongler t-rex shirt. I would wear it but I expect that most people would just see me as a socially inept retard that wears a t-rex shirt in public if I do and not understand the reference.
I'm down to meet.

I'm going as Denji from CSM
is anyone going as carrie kelley on the Saturday of this event? i have an idea for a photo + drawing mashup of sorts

Haha whoopsie, looks like I let lil ol SuperFanCon slip through the cracks, and that's this weekend. Are they ever gonna have a consistent venue? They're on at least the fourth that I'm aware of, and now it's Dadeland Mall of all places. And after finally feeling ready to forgive them for their pathetic 2020 showing the week before lockdowns (like 40 fucking attendees total), I can't make it cause I'm moving. Oh well!

Managed to get them to push my panel times forward a bit, but still nothing incredible. Will be really fascinating to see what they've gridded where.

Literally a get out of trouble free card to anyone not a legit cop
I'm planning on going. I'm thinking of cosplaying as Kaji from Neon Genesis, Red from Mandy, and Professor Utonium. I'm going all 4 days.

I agree, look up the parking pass and its real easy if you get the red deck or blue deck. I did this back in Feb at the ATL Comic Con. The deck will have elevators that go up to GWCC, at least the Red Deck did.
You look and see a retard, I see a professional wrestling idiot savant. The tard has real potential. That was one hell of a Samoan Drop he attempted on the female wrestler.

even with the strongest stiches it will leak a little as I said. But your stitches aren't bunker strong either from the looks of it, I usually stich 3-4 loops of double thread if I want to make sure something remains strong. Also did you use syntetich thread? Looks shiny on the photo and can't decide if it's just the light in the photo or synthetic thread

Other than that it's really nice work

unfortunately I had them on the way to the warehouse and not my address. some were gifts too. i hope they solve this asap
Not sure then. Your stuff isn't getting seized but you might be waiting a while for them to right things. Worst case the company goes out of business but seeing as that hasn't happened yet I don't think it will. Also to be clear 'reps' refers to Nike and stuff, not replicas of lolita or whatever. I would recommend Superbuy next time.
nayrt, and yes that's basically it. The police is after big brand replicas (Nike, LV, Balenciaga), and those replica products are what they mean when they say "reps". They've seized the PandaBuy warehouse and they're obviously not just going to blindly trust whatever it says on the packages so they're going to look into everything. During this investigation the packages are all stuck there and PB won't let you proceed with international shipping. There's no guarantee that your orders stuck in the warehouse will eventually be released so that you can get it mailed to you, but let's just hope things will get back to normal and everyone will be able to get their stuff.

WeGoBuy is undergoing the same thing.

Some general recommendations regardless whether you buy reps or not
-don't buy reps anywhere or with any SS. Most sellers won't even send it to SS right now
-there's been talk that other SS can come under investigation and there will be more warehouse raids
-if an order isn't time sensitive please hold off on ordering it for another month at least
-don't put more money in your SS account at the moment
-if you have anything in your SS warehouse or currently being shipped to your SS warehouse it's recommended to ship it to your address asap
neither bought lolita reps nor these big brand reps at all, I used pandabuy for legit chinese brands. My friend is the one getting fucked by proxy since we had a split haul and she spent the most. She just wanted an itabag and stuff while I just got very small stuff and I offered my coupons and stuff to ship at a good price. Goddamn, right after the anniversary discounts
here you go bb. that store has a lot in general, but just note most if not all of their products are dreamv or lizlisa designs(mostly factory "extras" since it's all made there and the style is less popular now so a lot of stuff is sold out.

What are some cosplay stories that you'll remember for the rest of your life?

Wholesome: Cosplaying some My Little Penis characters with my then-gf when a little girl started freaking out over how great we looked. She got her dad to take loads of pictures with both of us.

Less wholesome: I saw a fur-suiter yelling at his wife.

Least wholesome: Walking to the convention center behind my friend's sister in her Sailor Saturn cosplay, on a windy day. She either didn't notice or didn't care that her bare ass was playing aggressive peekaboo with me. Only time I've ever wanted the walk from the hotel to be longer.

Sad: I was at Twitchcon when that lady broke her spine.

I do, but in all likelihood I won't make it. The Hiltons booked up. Mint (not Pomu) also said she went last year, it sounded pretty sweet.

Good, the ambiguity suits me and my partner.
intersex conditions are as common as red hair, dumbass. if you've been to a con you've certainly met someone with one, knowingly or not.

>char is a himbo
Char couldn't be any further from himbo if he was a chick. The stereotypical image of a himbo is someone who's muscular, kind-hearted, and may or may not be "stupid" but is definitely not making his intellect the forefront of his personality. Your typical himbo is someone like Kronk from TENG, Inspector Hildibrand from FFXIV, arguably even Goku.

Char is ripped in Zeta, sure, but he's about as far from the other two criteria as you can get. The man is a permanent ball of mental conflict, stress, anxiety, and depression. Even as early as 0079 he spent the entire series living a double life as the heroic Red Comet, icon of Zeon, and as the bitter young man Casval trying desperately to get revenge on the Zabi family. He successfully does just that but also in the process helps to facilitate the Federation's dismantling of Spacenoid power and dignity that Zeon zum Deikun had worked so hard to built. Zeta has him trying to let the idea of the Red Comet die while he ignores (at best) Neo Zeon, even outright becoming its enemy with AEUG but also trying to stop Haman from indoctrinating Mineva - the heiress of the family he'd fought so hard to exterminate, and ironically the last real hope for his father's ideals. Mineva being alive renders everything he did in 0079 meaningless. In CCA he's forced back into the role of the "Red Comet, hero of Zeon" that he had tried to shed before, and despite being visibly uncomfortable with it (see: the train scene) he's once again held up as some sort of spacenoid messiah. He sabotages his OWN WAR EFFORT by leaking the Psycho-Frame data to Londo Bell in order to give Amuro a fighting chance against the Sazabi. Char is outright suicidal in CCA.

His bitter, violent, miserable nature is a far cry from any sort of "himbo". He's a cold man juggling so many masks even he doesn't know who he really is. And yes I AM replying to a nearly year-old post just to seethe.
Rather minor but at A.F.A. Singapore 2023 they had a massive amount of the second floor dedicated towards a Warhammer 40k tournament (idk how it is in America but in SG cons of all kinds are a mix of TCG, board games, anime/manga, lolita, comics; doesn't matter whether it's a comiccon or an anime fest by name, all of it will be there)

I get tapped to go to the hallway for a cosplay photo by event staff. They threw it together last second so as the photo was being taken a lot of people were running down the hall until the photographer said no more were allowed. One of these groups of people included a Warhammer 40k player in a full SS officer uniform outfit who was easily 300+ lbs and in a group of regular guys also playing in the tournament. After leaving the photo shoot they pointed me out and threw some remarks my way and towards a HSR crossplayer. Later when I was doing a paint-a-mini at the warhammer tables on the second day I saw con staff ask them to leave.

A lot of young Singaporeans have low knowledge about ww2 in Europe so I am not surprised it took con staff a while to ask them to leave, but also knowing Singapore there is a chance that some ISD Agents had lunch with that guy a few days later.

They got the nickname because they were developed for people with autism, but these things are quite handy even if you don't have autism. Especially for cosplayers.

Green - Feel Free to approach me and start a conversation
Yellow - Don't approach me unless I already know you
Red - Don't approach me, I'm busy

Just hanging in the hall and want people to approach you for pictures? Flip it to green. On your way to a panel/event and don't want to get stopped? Flip it to yellow. Sitting down to eat and don't want to be bothered? Flip it to red.

Chill. It's just like spoons theory or forks theory. It doesn't apply to everyone, they're just examples to attempt to explain what it's like for other people. Everyone's brain works differently whether if they're a normie or neurodivergent.

Not every person with autism is ASD-3. If a person had ASD-1 you probably wouldn't know unless they told you. ASD-2 people can be trained on how to socially interact but sometimes need some help. ASD-3 shouldn't be in public without a handler.
how about you stop using terms incorrectly if you want to prove a point. introvert and extroverts are specific things and social battery is not related to them in they way you posed it at all. all i did was tell you not to conflate them because it's a tired stereotype. it's useless to give examples of something you've gotten wrong to begin with.
As someone who has real trouble interacting with people, and recognising people (but without any diagnosis) how should I know that we know each other well enough that I can approach you when you wear a yellow badge? No offense intended, just curious

this print is taobao tier and a lot of meta prints in general are too. do japanese lolitas wear this stuff?

meta is a weird brand, they've been around forever and old meta is cute, but a lot of nu-meta looks like it was designed by someone with a vague idea of what lolita is, but with no actual experience with the fashion. the webshop's substyle categories are also indicative of staff not knowing much about the fashion. i wonder if they're having trouble finding good designers. they've been sticking with a lot of rereleases lately. the decline in quality and design reminds me of what happened to moitie.
It’s nowhere near as bad as Moitie imho, at least the re-releases they’re doing aren’t like Chinese knock off tier. The fabric for nu-Meta is interesting. It’s not as cheap as AP poly, and the construction is definitely better than AP, but it’s still not what I’d like to see. I also feel Meta did a great job keeping the fullness of the skirt, and there’s no skimping on fabric, so you can get a really nice poof. What happened to MMM is a tragedy. That one dress with the forest print is literally taobao tier.
Yeah, I'm the op and that wasn't what I meant it was more like the entire global economy seems shit rn. West, jp or China or anywhere. So the decision to release a lot of expensive dresses in a row is odd.
its so crazy that cgl just happens to be full of skinny people with 23" petite dolly uwu waists but every self poster thats been exposed on here is far, far from that description. its all cope.
nayrt, it's a mix in here. I'm pretty sure there are some fat people here who have that waist size who admit 82cm waist is fat because they don't want to fuel anyone's delusions.

There've been plenty of fat and chubby people on cgl talking about their own measurements and which dresses they fit in, and they weren't jumped or mocked for doing so. People just hate it when fat people pretend they're not fat.

This is #6737, hopefully the last person to still check in besides the people with gifts lost in the mail (here's hoping they show up!). The last few months have been an absolute mess especially health wise, and I've ended up having to move apartments as a surprise on top of that so I'm just getting my bearings back and starting to work through the stuff I'm behind on.
#9406 - I'm glad everything got to you safely and that you liked it! Especially the bauble really freaked me out since it seemed pretty fragile, but it looks to have made it to you nicely. Sorry again about the delay with shipping, but thankfully everything made it to you only a little delayed (and in that sense, the delay in shipping out helped - I live elsewhere most of the year).
(I had your ID here, but it's somewhere in my heap of stuff to be unpacked) Thank you so much, you're a sweetheart. <3 The belt pouch is perfect, I'll have to test out the ears at my next event and the spirit gum removal liquid in particular was spot on - I never bothered to get anything to remove it with in the past and have just been ripping stuff off in spite of the pain so my ears will really thank you there lol. Also, after the parcel arrived, I was ever so slightly disappointed since one of my favourite things about these gift exchanges is getting a little card/note from the gifter - and then a few days later I found your card in my mailbox. I have it pinned up next to my desk, some of the stickers have already ended up on the back of my laptop and I'll try to get around to at minimum finding you on social media when I get the chance, since you added your tag. Thank you again, and I'm so sorry about being so slow with checking in!

To #1066, Card tier. I didn't see any ID number for who sent it.

Finally my card arrived this Friday, and thank you for all the extras, it was fun to open with all the things inside! I will be saving the tea for the perfect moment!
I also really liked the Cardcaptor Sakura decoration tape on the inside of the card, Cardcaptor Sakura is an anime I liked a lot and it has played a big role in how I view the mahou shoujo ideal, and it also contributed to me deciding to try roller blades (alongside Kaleido Star)!

And thank you for all your good wishes!
I actually got what may have been the closest thing to a dream dress for me late last year (Saint Gabrielle), but now there are new items I want!
And it was really cool that we had so many similar interests!

I hope you have a good continued 2024!
Here’s my card that was lost in mail for a while! (from santa 3460 to me, 9460) I love all the small stuff and the postcard, I read your letter and since we matched I’m thinking of sending a letter back with a longer personal reply. You suggested keeping touch in social media before but I don’t have any so sending some snail mail might be nice (if you don’t mind). Thanks again!
The event is essentially done, but we may have some more things to share to wrap it up. It's not ready in this moment though, so here's an empty bump post.

Are cons safer now?
Anyone encountered any con creeps?

I (male) got my butt grabbed by another guy once, didn't bother me desu (not gay)
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Not really, I'm still hearing about creeps, sexual assault, and upskirt photos. Also had a lot of pickpocketers at the previous con I went to.
As someone that's been going to cons for over a decade. Don't really think cons were ever overall unsafe...
Isolated incidences of creeps being creeps is always going to be a thing.
I think the only thing that has really changed is people are more explicit about asking permissions for photos.
Literally nothing you said happened. Have you tried not constructing arguments in your own head?
I had a gay guy hit on me but that was about it
