Have many anime cons outgrown their current convention centers / venues?

Anime Expo and Katsucon both seem at their limit

MEFCC basically got kicked out of the ITC in Dubai for being too busy, rowdy, and having "unprofessional" guests (con-goers, cosplayers, and non-business types)

Men are familiar with it because you never stop bitching at us but also because foid is the obvious counter-derivation from moid.

Protip:
If you're not attractive and into cosplay, make tailored costumes for local Onlyfan Thots. They'll pay huge premium and you don't have to leave your parent's 2nd floor to do so.

You get the simp $$$ without having to shake your ass and undergo years of permanent damage. Plus you gain skills.

These posts are almost a year old, but I'm pretty sure the second one is me. If it is, maybe focus more on reading comprehension and less on gloating. There's no end of cons with high cosplayer turnout, from the biggest to the smallest. The real problem is if it's "an expo" or some generic multimedia event, in which case you're gonna be flooded with boomers, kiddies and normalfags

The itai in itasha came from ouch/cringe. And then after ita cars their were ita shirts and itabags. Learn cringe history, zoomer.
>>
Does anyone get creative block when working on an itabag? I have the pieces, deco, and the base bag ready to go, but when it's time to lay out all the pieces I draw a complete blank or hate whatever I'm putting down
>>
Maybe a silly question, but has anyone ever taken a bag through TSA? Do they get weird about all the items and pins and whatnot?
>>
>>10907616
NTA but they are correct ita anything is from itai because it's ugly or cringe, they didn't stem from itasha, itasha didn't even mean cringe car originally.
>In the 1980s, when Japan was at the zenith of its economic might, there were many luxury import cars in Tokyo. Among them, the "itasha"—originally Japanese slang meaning an imported Italian car—was the most desired. Since then, itasha (as the decorated vehicle) was derived from combining the Japanese words for itai (痛い, painful, cringe, embarrassing) and sha (車, vehicle).[3] Itai means "painful", with additional senses of "painfully embarrassing" "cringeworthy", "painful for the wallet" due to the high costs involved, or "painful to look at" (an eyesore). The name is also a pun for Italian cars (イタリア車, Itaria-sha), truncated in Japanese slang as Itasha (イタ車).
Learn your weebshit and sit down before incorrectly judging others.

I'm not sure how it was before but there's a stupid amount of groping. It feels like people are under the impression that it's acceptable or they won't get in trouble for it.

I want to make a mask of Fujita from dorohedoro. The references I've found online are either 3D printed or homemade projects where they just post the end result without showing the process. I figure I can do what one person did and get a tengu mask off Amazon and modify it down to the shape.

Pic related for those who don't know
>>
The plastic is thin enough to cut without much trouble; I'll just hollow out the gold in the eyeholes and remove the mouth and forehead sections.

I didn't expect the nose to come in two pieces either but it'll probably make thinning the end out easier.
>>
So, how to I whittle the nose bump down to a point? It's going to have to come off no matter what, but them how to build off it? I'm thinking epoxy over something

You could do a tail, ears, and paw gloves.
I think drawing on a nose and whiskers works be good too.
I think that's probably the limit before you look like a furry.
If you do those giant paw shoes that's furry territory.
Post the costume with upgrades once they're completed

The biggest one (Anime North) is hardly relevant and only has washed up VAs, random indie vtubers, or just straight up completely unknown people as their guests. The vendors are mostly just people reselling cheap stuff from taobao or stolen prints.

It feels so shittily put together that I think I'll just not buy a ticket and instead stroll around outside taking pictures of cool cosplays. Maybe I'm just pessimistic, but the grass always seems greener on the other side.

On a side note, if anybody's into Project Moon stuff, please hit me up, I... I wanna make friends.

Old thread is nearing its limit >>10790295


This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

Cosplay noob here. I'm looking to make a mask like this. The character is relatively obscure, so I can't just buy one, but I've never done something like this before. From what I've seen paper mache is the go-to, but the horns are what throw me. I'm not sure where I'd even get started with something like that.

Basically, any tips? Is paper mache the way to go? Would this be too difficulty for a beginner, should I give up and go with something else? thanks.

If you want a smooth and symmetric finish, either make a foam pattern or a 3d print. Paper mache or other hand sculpting/molding mediums will likely end up sad and lumpy looking.

I'm confused by the pace of this thread.
>rip files
>clean them up
If they're not available online anyways, get some guy from fiver to do it for you. Else, get a hold of the original cosplayer and ask him for files.
>print them
Probably need to be put into parts and reassembled, but doable on all medium2large printers. Check your local maker space if you don't have a 3d printer of your own.
>sand them
>tape
>air brush some gold highlights
Check your local warhammer community if you have an airbrush gun of your own.

For five masks, i'd wager three afternoons, or one good weekend.
