nta but i feel this. there are still some people who do it but it's not the same most people only craft or sew to show it off for e-clout. i remember being excited when i drafted my own patterns or designed my own wig, but the only people i shared that with were my friends and people at the con. now people just ask where you got your cosplay, they assume you bought it.

i feel this is the same with anime itself. it used to be that you waited years for a single new anime to get released in the west, it was easy to know like all 10 anime that existed total and everyone had the same frame of reference. people just rewatched or reread the same series for years because that was all they had, so cosplaying from it was also a natural choice. but now you can watch the entire new broadcasted lineup of anime the same day it all comes out in japan and there are multiple broadcast seasons a year, there is too much too fast so most people don't get into the series as deep because they just switch to the next new thing immediately after they finish the previous thing.

So cool. Back when nerds were nerds. Absolutely lovely thread. Man, I remember being so entranced by anime back then. It was such an exotic mysterious world from a far away land. It had so much style. I was so cool. I wish I was older back then. I could've had so much fun with this stuff.

What would be the best material to make a suit of power armor? Small pieces of 3d print, foam? Should I design it in the early fallout slimmer style or the later fallout mech style?

box stilts
>>
As someone who has made 3D printed power armor (Not Fallout).
Don't do it, it's just too heavy. I don't know what the right answer is because I really like the sharpness and symmetry of prints. I really want to try a mix of foam and prints but I'm not there yet

>>10912423
The helmet will help, but the in-game model also has like 6" of stilts in them so it probably would look of not to tower over people

Check out some software called Armorsmith for sizing, basically punch in your measurements and you can snap pieces onto an avatar and tweak on sizes

Nope, Anime Boston recently signed contracts keeping them in the Hynes currently up to 2028. It's also been said that the BCEC layout/configuration does not align to what Anime Boston wants to do/offer.

It shrank down to about 24,900 in 2017-first year in DC, climbed up to about 28,500 in 2018 & 2019. Coming back from COVID in 2021, it shrank down to 25,564 despite only having a masking requirement. It climbed to about 40,500 in 2022 (in part due to AnimeNEXT's issues in 2022) and to about 42,000 in 2023.

So I'm trying make the weapons in pic related and I was wondering what materials I should use.

Trying to organize a big swim meetup for all the mermaids in my area at a pretty area, a very nice natural spring... but it's several hours away so not sure how many people will end up coming. Me and one other mermaid are committed but I have the feeling a lot of people saying "yes!" right now are going to bail closer to the date. But even if it's just us two we'll still enjoy it at least.

I'm also trying to make more jewelry for myself. Bracelets and such out of cultured pearl beads, so I can stop using plastic ones when I swim.

Heya /cgl/! I made the decision to give cosplaying a try. I cant describe how much i enjoyed it, especially because im a very extroverted person. What do you guys think of my first cosplay? :]

Films/tv shows that are based on cosplay/con culture or at least reference it in some way.

I felt that 2Kawaii4Comfort was (for better or worse) the most accurate description of going to a small con and having a bad time at it. It's a shame it ended on a cliffhanger.

Honestly as someone in the competitive scene this show is like crack to me and my friends. Competitive cosplayers are just /like/ that, the show is spot on with the ridiculousness and how life or death serious people get stressed over it
>>
>>10911577
I just finished the first episode and I agree. This is pretty accurate to how intense/emotional some of these people can get with this competition.

On that note, the difference between the contestants who are treating the cosplay contest as a life or death situation vs the ones that are having fun with it is night and day. One of the contestant's perfectionism resulted in her completely skipping the competition.
>>
>>10912048
Agree, will say it's also super interesting to rewatch the show through the 2024 lens of competitive cosplay, where we have so much more available technology that is the norm in contest cosplays now. Seeing a pre-3d printer competitive scene was great
>>
電車男 (Densha Otoko). Although it's an exaggerated comedy and not directly related to cosplay, it's one of the few series I've seen that still pretty accurately portrayed anime nerds and 4chan-esque culture (there are a couple cosplayers/LARPers featured in it) in many respects. I recommend the TV series over the book.
>>
>>10912087
So I'm 5 episodes deep into this show and here are some moments that stood out.

1) One contestant wearing wool that she is allergic to. Which made her so sick before a cosplay skit she ended up puking before going on stage, only to do a performance that no one understood or enjoyed.

2) Yaya Han having this weird beef with Jessica Nigri over her doing lewd cosplay. It turns out they're friends in real life and the show overdramatized it simply because Jessica didn't want to be on the show.

3) Monika Lee saying to another cosplay that "you'd be the last person I'd team up with" was just a dickhead way of going about that. It's fine to not want to collab with people, but she could have had more tact.

I did a jax cosplay and at least 3 women wanted me to fuck them what the fuck is wrong with people.

You made them fear for their lives and they tried to preemptively appease you. It's a classic female survival tactic, which is why you see women flock to abusers and psychos.
