lol this sounds exactly like my comm. a lot of people are just lurkers nowadays because of the mods absolute lack of effort to stop the off topic annoyances, troons, and itas that don’t actually wear Lolita. I wonder if it’s actually the same one because the description of the last meet sounds spot on as well
>Do you like your local community overall? Why/why not?

Not even slightly. A while after I joined an ita tif joined and talked constantly about muh dysphoria muh mental illness and spammed the chat so much the mods restructured the discord to at least move the weird venting somewhere else. There were a lot of oldfags that basically stopped participating in most small events because of the influx of itas and trannies. Moderation is too flexible on it. And all the new members are taobaolitas, old ones are terrible at cording their brand. Wouldn’t be caught dead in public around them

>What would you do to change it?

I’d just start a new one if I could, but idk how to without getting cancelled for not letting the unsavories in

>Even if there are problems, are you glad you joined?

It’s good for laughs

>What makes you the most salty about it?

Definitely the mentally ill itas who don’t even actually wear Lolita but still spam the chats daily with tmi that no one cares about
I've never been part of a proper "comm" before, so forgive my ignorance, but I don't think there's any crime in starting a discord, going to a comm meet, and just getting the contact info of a few people who are cool and inviting them? If the comm is so bad and you're more fun to be around, I think it should be doable. You'd be admin so I'd think you'd have control over who gets let in. The best comm should be a small circle of pals, I think.
The thing about making a new comm or even just private meets is that people have to know who you are first. That means posting your coord pictures in the current comm server, interacting with people there, going to meets and getting to know people.
Once you've done that and the decently dressed people no longer feel like strangers you can arrange a private meet by inviting who you want to invite by sending them a dm. It helps if you have someone you know quite well to approach first ("I want to arrange a small meet, unofficially, with people I like. Would you be interested? And what would you like to do?"). So you can later approach other people and tell them that (insert name here) and you want to arrange a small cozy unofficial meet, asking if they want to attend.
Do a few of these private meets and you can start talking with your friends about starting a new comm if you still feel it's necessary.

Maybe this advice is too autistic, if it is then just disregard it.
>Do you like your local community overall? Why/why not?
They're good, a mix of itas and great lolitas but overall mostly nice people. A lot of the shit stirrers were banned. I mostly attend private meets, which is really just hanging out with friends. One of my friends is good at organizing bigger private events every few months.
>What would you do to change it?
Running a comm is hard, idk if I could make it better. Maybe return to monthly meets so new people could get the chance to meet everyone. Maybe more swap meets, those are always great for new people and a good spot to get deals and get rid of stuff that isn't worth listing online. Also revisiting the mod team, a lot of the mods haven't been active in the community for years, but I don't think anyone else wants the responsibility.
>Even if there are problems, are you glad you joined?
Yeah, I met a lot of really good friends through the comm.
>What makes you the most salty about it?
There are some people who I dislike who attend big events, but that's life. I also feel like people who used to host regular comm meets were turned off it by all the flakes and broke people causing issues.

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.

By Grabthams Hammer, I agree
Didn't the show runner for the first season admit they didn't want any male cosplayers because they're not good enough?
It's actually incredible to achieve that feeling of cringe in that medium. It's honestly on the level of a Hong Sang-soo movie.
Actually really loved this film, not sure if it holds up since I last saw it.
I feel like it holds up pretty well, even with the early 2000s style of comedy.

But moments like at 0:22 in this video make me feel like they actually wanted to represent what LARPing is like and didn't just want to write half-assed jokes at it being the butt of the joke.

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.

Happy holidays gulls! My gift to you is an updated convention list with the 2024 conventions. More will come once dates become available.

Out of curiosity, is there anything you would like to see next year? New events, guests and whatnot?

People are replying like this thread isn't over a month old without a single response from the OP.

no thread? let's go!!
I forgot this con was a thing and the rooms are sold out it seems oh well
Across 2022 was my biggest dark horse con ever, but I heard the venue change for last year ruined any chance of that happening again. Sad!

Inferno Cop weeps. Can't have shit in Jersey.

What's the TLDR drama?
Basically the everyone sucks in this scenario. In 2022 The Atlantic City Convention Center dropped mask requirements and the con organizers chimped out and broke their contract early, leaving AC behind. The new venue was a shit show as it was in 2 locations with a 20 minute drive between the two. People were pissed after having to wait 3 years and for the con dropping masks & vaccine cards a week before the con.
Can't say I'm surprised by this development whatsoever. Last year was a complete shitshow and I only went because my 2020 ticket got rolled over for 3 years. I didn't even bother taking off work for the Friday or going on Sunday. Throwing tantrums over not being able to enforce mask mandates in the ACCC, expecting to be told by the convention center and hotels that there's another event taking place in the city that weekend (no shit, it's Atlantic City?), and not being able to force random passerbys to wear masks in a public area was completely unhinged and I knew it wasn't going to end well.
4 years without a con in the last 5 years. AnimeNext is dead. This used to be really fun and well run. too. Real shame.
It seems almost as being an obsessive compulsive control freak and getting high on power dont team up so well and are bad for business.
This whole burning car wreck of a cat urine transporter is simply people with the emotional maturity of a five year old being able to decide more than what they themself eat for breakfast and spiralling into cartoon villain levels of a god complex. It would be almost funny if retards like this wouldn't destroy one nerd hobby after another with being that easy to manipulate by actual adult politics.
that's nice to hear but let me saying this, your entire continent is irrelevant to this country. i'm only aware of estonia and latvia because ive interacted with people from there before on the internet. just think how the average american hasnt heard of any country besides germany france italy and maybe sometimes spain. we have 50 fucking states here to think about and then our friends up north and then south before we even pay attention to you. meanwhile, we live in your head rent free

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

I feel that one, anon. Both the male and female posters here seem to lose sight of this for their own reasons ("IT'S OVER" doomposting, getting up on their moral policing high horse) Thankfully the ones that actually come out for meetups are pretty much always cool, and sometimes they'll make the whole weekend

EXACTLY i tend to be a bit of an autist at cons but seeing someone in the hall and going ...I KNOW YOU! will never lose its magic. listening to people talk about shit they're passionate about and vice versa, stupid drunk debates, having someone freak out over your cosplay and vice versa FUCK I LOVE CONVENTIONS. last con i went to a bunch of strangers in barbie cosplays shouted me down the hall and gave me a jello shot out of a cowboy hat because i was cosplaying a cowboy character. nowhere else bro
