All of these hobby spaces have wonderful people in them and unfriendly people in them. I do hear about drama in far away communities but I've never personally experienced that in the communities I've been in (cosplay, lolita, art, other creative hobbies). I don't think I got unusually lucky, I think the drama is the exception not the rule.

On one hand, I want to cosplay something I'm passionate about because that's the entire point.
On the other hand, I want to cosplay something popular because I experienced the unfathomable dopamine hit of someone asking to take a picture with me and that memory will stay with me for the rest of my life as it is quite possibly the only time anyone I don't already know has been that interested in me.
Conundrum.

Too old to be taking chair shots like that dawg.

Something's been bothering me for a month, who decided it would be a good idea to do Friday-Mon for a con, but have their literal after party event be on a Saturday night, same night as a rave? I'm coming from out of town, so I have to drive on a Sunday but that shit seems fucking weird to me.
>>
>>10910762
Been wondering about this too. The usual schedule is Thursday-Sunday with almost no one doing shit on Sunday for both Momo and AWA. No clue why they've switched up now. I have to imagine Monday will be a wasteland.
>>
>>10910850
Yeah I had to cut out a cosplay line up out because it was Fri-Mon, and my guy booked for Thurs - Sun instead of Weds - Sun. So I have to drive down from OH then instead. I hope this plays into next year's scheduling set up because that threw me off super bad.

I'm a near-complete beginner to con culture and the "scene" due to zero exposure to it until recently and I have too many questions swimming around in my head that I need to ask. I've only been to a couple of small ones in my mostly-desolate area and I want to step up to traveling to bigger ones but I'm overwhelmed. Please bear with me.
>Do a majority of congoers cosplay? I know it's common, but is it seen as a faux pas to not cosplay?
>Likewise, is it seen as a faux pas to wear the same cosplay more than once in a multi-day event, or to not wear it some days?
>I've read a lot on this board about "after hours" events and parties that aren't scheduled by the con staff. Do you have to get invited to things like that, or how do people find out about them?
>Do cons that don't have a stated sub-demographic (ones that use terms like "fandom" or "pop culture" instead of specifically "fantasy" or "otaku" or something) tend to accept all demographics? Would you be looked at weird for going to something more "western" like SDCC in an anime cosplay, or would you expect to see a lot of them?
>Why do some huge cons like Colossal and Dragon seem to place such significance on getting a hotel room onsite as opposed to just being nearby? Surely not just traffic, right?
>What's a "gull"?
>How do you not get sick every time you go to one?
>How do you keep track of scheduling for multiple cons across multiple years? Do you get notified about them? When is "con season"?
>If you're partying, how do you deal with inevitable hangovers or crashes?
And some more personal questions
>If you cosplay, what's normally your budget? Both in terms of time and money.
>How do you make friends at a con if you're not going with a group?
>How many cons do you go to yearly or on a recurring basis? There are a fuckton I want to see but I'm not sure if my expectations are unreasonable.
Thank you for your time.

You need to learn how to vibe and talk to people at conventions. If you're underage that's one thing. If you're old enough you should budget for a hotel room so you can party and party with strangers and make new friends. The best part about conventions is meeting people and subsequently running into them at other cons in other years and it's all so fucking beautiful. It's the only time you don't have to suppress your powerlevel because guess what? They know all the dumb memes you do and have a lot of overlap in interests and other things you enjoy. You can ask someone why they're green and actually learn something about Startrek because they fucking love star trek so much they painted themselves green! SO WHEN I ASK THEM THEY ARE MORE THAN WILLING TO GUSH ABOUT THE SHIT THEY LOVE! I FUCKING LOVE NERD CONVENTION SHIT HOLY FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

In general, women at cons aren't worth interacting with to befriend or even have friendly conversation with, even as another women.
They literally all have superiority complexes, and to be fair, it's not hard to have one when you consider that 95% of the men there are tripping over themselves to find their precious congoing gf.
Sometimes you can find normal, funny dudes though.

>but we might get a presidential suite at ALA so, that’s pretty cool.
Yo, I was planning on trying to hit ALA for the first time this year and I would kill to get that kind of party there, as someone who direly needs more friends and especially more confriends.
When you say friend list do you mean like Facebook, Discord, what?

i love making stuff. same as anyone who likes woodworking or spinning pottery.

i love anime and japan. but you usually get a ton of crap like weebs who've only seen 2010s mainstream shit and who never learned japanese (i'm far from perfect, but at least i've passed jlpt n1). i like feeling at home with my weeb level at a con. i feel odd at cons if i dont cosplay. and i would love to wear weeb shit like geta every day but that's unacceptable for a white guy so i cosplay semi-traditional characters instead.

i like feeling like someone else.

secretly i hope if i cosplay at a con someone'll wanna fuck. i've only ever been in serious relationships brought on by love confessions, i'd love to experience a one-night stand.

way too many larpers and retards itt. you felt nothing wearing it because you bought shitty mass produced chinese crap at goodwill and threw it on like a kid playing dress up. maybe lolita just isn't your style, but you weren't wearing lolita, so how could you know? without investing time into learning about the fashion, its history, and each of its coordination elements, you're going to look like shit. enjoy your $5 poly sack you obnoxious autist.

>its like putting up a christmas tree. it's no good if you just "Wear it"
lolita fashion is clothing. it's not cosplay. it's designed to be regularly worn. your "reason" to wear it is that it's fucking cute and makes you feel good about yourself. as someone who also has mostly traditionally male hobbies, the way you dress has nothing to do with what you do in your free time. and if some dumbfuck moid giving you a hard time over your frilly dresses makes you want to stop wearing them, then lolita is not the fashion for you.

iirc it happened to take place around the 2010's with either the new 52 and/or the suicide squad movie but i'm not sure on how everyone decided to start dressing up as her

(for that matter, did any major (cos)player dress up as her prior to 2011?)

The difference is that it's dark brown, not an unnatural color like metallic or hot pink. You can't put body paint on for any shade that can be natural in the US and get away with it.

Also Frieren's skin only shows for her face (ears), hands, and a tiny sliver of neck and upper chest. It is really just face/hand painting to change you skin color for her and even harder to pass publicly.
>>
>>10910625
My point is that I do not understand why you would want to see someone cosplay a boring recolor in the first place

because it's legendary

Previous thread >>10803531 died from a lack of posts. Not all that surprising with how little there was to post about at the time. Personally I'm also somewhat done with /cgl/ and all the pointless con drama and have been focusing on other things. But now that we've got several conventions around the corner, have a new thread!

Question of the thread: What convention are you looking forward to the most this year and why?

Upcoming major events
>22-23 Sep: Elfia Haarzuilens, a large popular outdoor fantasy event in Haarzuilens.
>6-7 May: MIA NL, a popular commercial anime convention in Gorinchem.
>21-21 May: Comic Con Brussels, a large commercial geek convention in Brussels.
>9-11 June: Animecon, the oldest anime convention of the Netherlands, hosted in Rijswijk.
>24-25 June: Heroes DCC, the largest commercial geek convention with a focus on dealers.
>30 Jun-2 Jul: Dokomi DE, a large popular anime convention in Dusseldorf.
>8-9 July: Atsusacon, Belgium's largest anime convention... I think?
>3-6 August: Castlefest, a(nother) large popular outdoor fantasy event in Haarzuilens with tons of great food.
>11-13 August: Abunai!, the second oldest and probably now largest anime convention of the Netherlands, hosted in Veldhoven.
>12-13 August: Showmasters Comic Con Amsterdam, a geek convention in Amsterdam.

Would Elfia Haarzuilens be worth traveling to from the UK? I skimmed the youtube videos of the cons on the list and it seemed the most fun. Price wise it doesn't seem much more than going to a non-local UK con.

I would say so if you like fantasy fairs. I personally really like Elfia. Nice location, always something to do or see.

Unfortunately it's kinda shit if it rains a lot. But that's a risk you have to take.
