I've been going to cons for a decade now and I have never figured out what these TV heads are supposed to be. I just kinda assumed it was a tradition at anime cons, like how there used to be a tradition before covid of going to cons as Deadpool and being a jackass.
Im still not sure after reading this
>even when cosplaying a CRT they still dress like sluts
I'm going to do my first cosplay soon too.
Me too anon
Tomorrow in fact

CCC #2 Repent Edition

What recently mischiefs have you done recently? Or plan on perpetuate on your next innocent victims.

Me: Ask someone if I can play Street Fighter II on the SNES classic. It was a close match manage to win, He was getting ready for a rematch but I say thank you and prepare to leave, He leaves first. Also after that pick up some free posters that some left of the consoles table and I leave.

Also repent for being lazy and missing 3 cons this year.

Also asexual, similar experiences being hit on. It's like people smell it and they want what they know they can't have. Nice to know I'm hot but really sucks when I'm a socially autistic retard that has a hard time saying no, so I just have to visibly cringe until they go away which feels even more rude but I do it automatically every time like clockwork.
It's an anime thing for me. There are probably more of us. You just gotta know where to look. I sure don't!
>i gave away expired condoms to horny ass weebs at a late night party
Its all dudes and trannies. The few girls are the type that dont sex anyways so you pretty much accomplished nothing.
I will just say I'm at Conventions with a Game Boy Camera.

It's just a couple of weeks away. Is anyone in the area going, or have you been to it in past years? What did you think if so? Seems to have a pretty solid selection of guests.
This board is so dead.... I didn't realize this con was coming up, but I'll probably drive up to Huntsville and check it out. I went once years back, it was fun. Met so many Homestuck cosplayers (to give you an idea of how far back this was). It used to be easier to find AL gulls...

Fuck yeah. I might go as Jane or Terezi in that case! I hope a lot of homestucks come out of their retirement homes this con.

What’s on your playlist?.
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
In terms of anime music, a mix of songs from whatever we're currently watching and nostalgic classics from shows my friends and I were into back in the day.
I also end up playing a lot of country too though since that's the main normie music I'm into and nothing is a better fit for driving for hours across the middle of nowhere.

I listen to a lot of feel-good energetic-electronic music.
1) Snail's House
2) Moe Shop

1) ClariS
2) Perfume
3) Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

I also like artists that make Weeb-themed music:
1) PaiDA
2) YFU Baby

If I'm honest I listen to all kinds of music, most of the time I listen to lofi to relax faster, but the artists that are always on my playlist are

1- Beabadoobee
2- Chloe Moriondo
3- Inabakumori (a lot of vocaloid songs)
4- Yakui the Maid
5- Takayan

The others are very random, but as long as they relax me and agree with my mood, I am happy, I guess I don't pay much attention to genres of music desu

Kek all that shoop and she couldn't remove that big ass tag sticking out of her costume?
You just think that because she's showing more skin.
It tastefully covers her armpit.
Id bang an old lady.
didn't know shoop works irl too. What a time to be alive.
Also if you can't tell if something is shooped to hell and back you deserve to be disappointed by reality.

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.

we'll never get this back, and it hurts so much
36 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Mid-late 2010's was one of the worst times to go to cons in history. Streetpasses were fun (I didn't have a 3DS but my frens did so I go to see secondhand how fun they were), but everything else was either worse than it is now or laid the groundwork for the bad things going on at cons today.
>the fucking Deadpools everywhere
>every con had a major presence from one of the two major streaming services of the time, a lot of the prime time panels were those studios shilling their shit, general cluelessness of or uninformed hostility towards torrenting started here because they were pushing their shit so hard
>costhots being advertised as main events (they still get advertised in modern cons but in their own containment sections), which ruined casual cosplaying and turned it into a tryhard thing
>cosplays you'd see is 50% the current or last season's FOTM thing, 25% Deadpools, 25% everything else
>general pre-MeToo "don't look at me, rapist!" hostility in the community (people want to memoryhole this, but dating for the bottom 80% was actually worse back then because there was a legal risk to being rejected)
>if your con was during pride month people would show up with their pronouns flags and sometimes cons would seem like pride parades because of all the flags (didn't really bother me but I remember anons here being upset about it at the time)

I'd even go as far as to say that cons are better now in the post-covid era than they were back then. They're different and some of the good stuff from back in the mid 2010's is gone, but corporate not being at most cons will be a huge plus in the coming years, plus people are less hostile to being approached now.
I got hundreds of streetpasses from comicon 2016
take me back
You meant this post to be cynical but as someone who's just now getting into the con scene I find it very encouraging for the future
I wasn't being cynical when it comes to cons in the current decade. Cons now are still not as good as 00's cons, but they're way better than 2010's cons. The only big thing I miss from the 2010's that's gone now is viewing rooms since they were somewhere to go when you ran out of things to do and didn't feel like going through the dealer hall for the fifth time.
Is it still possible to do local? Example, acnl locally? Thanks

Why is there such a stigma against girls who cosplay for money? As someone who has never had a girlfriend, being able to send money to cute girls who cosplay as the characters that I love is one of the only things in my life that makes me feel like I have a purpose. From patreon to onlyfans, it's on of my biggest joys and motivations in my life. One day I hope I can give money to a cosplayer at a con in real life and not just through the internet.

What's stopping you?
I don't know them
Just message the whore on onlyfans and say "I'll pay you 200 bucks for some head." 95% of them will say yes. Just don't do it to the top 1% like amouranth or whateve.r No social skillz needed.
I don't think that would work and the message would be easily evidence to report.
1) You're wrong. and 2) Who cares?

Just use a fake email address and move on to the next whore. Most have their prices listed on their external socials anyway

Got the white OP, 2 pairs of otk, jewelry, and other accessories. Loving the spring releases. Will chill on summer however…

Pretty sure they’ll throw in one or two surprise re-releases as we had Be My Valentine and Flower Garden Teatime along with the 4 new spring prints this year so far. Don’t forget the lyrical bunny plush rucksacks are also due in May.

Still waiting on Topping Donut also. Might be this week since last week was a print?
Topping Donut was the Fashion Show exclusive so it should be shipped out directly when it’s ready and not a weekend release. I do suspect a non-print this weekend.

Harajuku has a new tartan series up on display right now. Shinjuku also has the new tartan display and Flower Kitten. So highly likely Flower Kitten is the next print.

is being into cosplay at age 30+ cringe?

Kyuriin knows how to draw yet shows up to Anime Boston with A I imagery. If you are going to generate images to sell, it has no place in artist alley. Stick to your 20 images a day posts that get all the hearts on social, and continue to ruin etsy or something.
Sorry I'm retarded, how do you know it's AI? Is making traditional art the way to go now? like >>10860574
You can def tell just by the cape having a magical extra cape, and a random speck of sky through the cape. There’s anatomy issues as well in the rear to leg area. I’m familiar with this artist and it isn’t anywhere close to their style of rendering. Also her clothing isn’t correct to the series, something image generation does frequently. If the clothing was designed in a way that was not the ai trying it’s best, you’d certainly notice.
I see now, it gets worse the more i look. The skill level should match the anatomy. That hair alone is fucked up.
That’s a pretty big reach desu. You sound like you’ve got a bit of sand in your cunt about it desu
