I heard that there are blacklists on convention. Every con has its iwn. But they are never perma bans. So thats why creeps return after a year of 2 . Just to be banned again ( most of the time). Only chris klinkers is an exception and has a lifetime ban( not seen him on any convention)

Is anyone legit thinking about going to that 'cringe party' event? Is it even legit?

I wouldn't be surprised if she locks the door behind us and unleashes white knights onto us.

>>9623501
All those events are cringe, no need to name it like that. Ah well, I wouldn't go. As far as I know it only attracts creeps and people new to the community. I also remember her trying to appeal to lolitas by inviting them along to a weeb party.
Personally, I stay away as she is toxic af.

I am quite sure that the Foot Fetish guy got a permaban from Animecon years ago.
>>
>>9623376
As covention staff what i know is that the length of the ban depends on what happened. And usually we try to hear out both sides after the event beacause usually its a he said, she said, they said story.
Also this get discussed during Anigenda meetings. What other conventions do with the info is their problem.
(this is what i have been told, dont hold a position where I actually have a say in this)

>Is anyone legit thinking about going to that 'cringe party' event?
Not me, I really don't feel like travelling 2 hours for something silly like this. At best those few people there get to see how laid back gulls really are, at worst I get thrown out for being a big meanie. The only reason I put it up there is because the invite mentioned us directly. Besides, it's not like we've got that many events going on in the near future.

someone know what happened with that capt boomerang cosplayer? he is being accused of being a creeper towards underaged girls or smth?
>>

Havent heard about that

>>9624788
The only thing I know is that he ask me friend if she was the one who punched him in the face last comic con.
>>
>>9624946
Was she?
>>
>>9624894
he was the founder of dutch suicide squad or something. got kicked out of that group because of innapropriate behavior (mainly) towards ladies.

there must be a story behind this, deets?

>>9624788
What did he even do exactly? They where so vague on FB...
>>
>>9624994
i got some info that hes sending messages to some guy he got beef with, blaming him for pedofilia (without proof) he even threatend him saying he is going to make sure that he wont be allowed to visit any convention anymore
>>
>>9624951
No, It was another cosplayer with the same or similar cosplay.

>>9624962
No idea. I want to know myself, but when I ask, he ignored my question.
>>
I was wondering the same thing after seeing the boomerang dude make a video, so I went to the blacklist dude his page and watched his latest video. He called thom out, as well as davey from dutch garrison and rajesh.
He pretty much wants to solve things himself with his fists, with an 'I do whatever I want' attitude.

>He pretty much wants to solve things himself with his fists, with an 'I do whatever I want' attitude.

Those guys are so hopeless. He is basically just a overweight average height person with an attitude. Guys with a big mouth like that always keeps an eye out not to step on the toes of really tall and strong bouncer type guys with even more argressive attitude, because he knows those guys would knock him the fuck out. Or get stabbed by a skinny eastern europe guy with a more argressive attitude than him.
>>
>>9625043
>>9625047
So exactly what I expected to happen.

He certainly didn't waste any time.

Brilliant! So not only do we have some delusional white knight who believes creating a Facebook page for his personal blacklist makes it official, but he's already drunk on power and drawing personal matters into things. What a true professional he is, a true professional idiot that is. Let's just hope his claims of "several cons have already contacted me" are either false or were to kindly tell him to sod off.
>>
>>9625062
Jesus, that looks insane.
>>
>>9625070
I'm more worried about him being violent at cons than anything else.
>>
>>9625088
I hope he does get violent at a con. I can only imagine the look on his face when that con orders him to add himself to his silly little list.
>>
How often can you really wear a costume before people get sick of seeing it? I'm not really a cosplayer and prefer to spend my crafting time making things I can use or wear on a more daily basis, but I'm considering doing a certain very intricate cosplay just to test my skills and hopefully learn some new ones. With how little free time I have though, this will probably take me over a year to make and will push aside any other projects. This would be worth it if I can just wear that costume to every con/faire I go to from there on out, but is this feasible? I don't want to become That Person who everyone gets annoyed with because they keep milking the same old costume.
>>
>>9625469
As long as you don't 'sandbag' (aka compete in the same costume over and over again), no one will really care.

I keep wearing the same costumes sometimes too, because it's just comfy or a character I love. I just no longer compete with it or do high-profile stuff with it.
>>
>>9625047
He shouldn't ''solve things out himself'' ... He really only makes an idiot out of himself and shows his true colors. Can't expect that people take your Blacklist page seriously if you start vendetta yourself without any hard form of proof.

Michael just another dumb autistic idiot if you ask me

This guy is gonna be a hero in some small circle of autistic and ugly female cossers with no possibilty to become big, get attention etc because they cant improve.

And other people who actually grow big, visit cons normally or arent weird fucks who can think normally wont like him.

This guy seems like a person, if he would get into a fight, even a 12 year old can floor him and he will scream weird slurs like he is right and saving the community from pervs, because no one else cares.

Hail Dutch Cosplay Blacklist. True friendzone admin trying to get on the good side of female cossers so he seems like a "nice guy" and this way can get a decent girlfriend.

>>9625665
Pathetic really. I've met thom and he doesnt deserve to be called a pedo.
>>
>>9625672
sure he has trouble with personal space but that doesnt make someone a pedo. gonna stay on the fence until more info leaks out though. i've heard some talk about inappropriate personal messages on facebook and im not sure what to believe anymore.
>>
>>9625672
Agreed. As long as there is no proof, there is no need to call someone a pedo.

I do think, however, that he is an idiot and an asshole. He also grabbed my gf's ass at a con once. But she's no minor.

This whole vendetta thing is getting boring again. I gave the blacklist shit a few weeks or months but it turns out the owner fucks it up within days. What a surprise. Next topic? Any cosplayes you look forward to seeing? Do you know someone who's working on something cool? Like, apart from prop and smoke obviously ;) keep up the great work
>>
>>9625673
About half of the autists I know tend to not understand the personal space thing. For example latching onto somebody (following around the con) over enthousiastic hugging, laying a hand on somebody to comfort them etc. Ass touching obvs crossing the line /is harassment.

People need to start saying clearly what he did, otherwise it's going to look like their just bullying an autist who made stupid mistakes.
Harassment should never be excused, but if he actually harassed people then there should be clear examples.

Not Pedophilia, but Ephebophilia.
Thom was kick out off Dutch Suicide Squat because he harrest 14 and 15 year olds.
They won't tell you that online, but have no problems telling you that in person. So do that instead of defending everyone who got attacked by the blacklist.

I get that you guys find the jokers way sickening. But defending Thom's Ephebophilia makes you guys just as wors

If both sides gonna be vague about it, we'll be none the wiser. I lost my respect for olga, the now squad leader. She's too old for pettyness like that. Also she was piss drunk at animecon.

hi michael
>>
>>9625713
Pointing out that you guys are doing a 'the enemy of my enemy, is my friend' without thinking it through, doesn't make me Michael. I'm even saying his way isn't the good one.

But yeah, I'm mad, and maybe a little bit beyond correct. My friend got harrasted by him (and I'm also mad at her for not comming out for it, because she's afraid nobody will believe her and think she's lying for Michael), yet people are defending someone they have never heard about before, because they don't like the other person.

If you have lost your trust in one, like>>9625711, ask someone else of the group. And do it in person, than they are more talk active and can't log out to avoid the question.
>>
>>9625734
'you guys' I know thom. I ain't saying he did nothing, but I don't think he's a pedo. There is no complete picture, so no way for me to judge correctly. Michael is like a fat white version of pedro, except for pedro being a decent cosplayer. 'harassed' is a big word, if you ain'gonna spill anything, it doesn't mean anything.

just report that page for practitioning against the law and move on. What a subject.
The conventions have their own security and measures against people that do not follow the rules. Don't play own cop or support people that do so. This ain't the usa
>>
As Female con orga what annoys me most is their "Tip" to go to THEM if you need a trust person.
Firstly I don't walk around with a gaint Staff on my shirt for nothing. And If there are people capable of actually doing shit is the Orga.
Secondly don't trust the Orga OK that can happen go to a security (With a V) or EHBO personel in uniform. They are LITERALLY TRAINED to act in those situations.

This is just next level Don Quixote white Knight.
>>
Also just sending such a list to a Festival is against the law. And the official thing the Orga has to do is take that info to the cops.
Its against the law to just save and spread around personal information about people.

Facebook won't do shit about that, they even don't do that when somebody recieves unsollicited dickpicks or dickvideo.

On the other hand call Thierry Baudett and donkey (A Baudett is Donkey in French) and you will get a 24 hour ban at least.

>>9625872
Baudet is litteraly donkey. Also this creepy politician is a prime example of the arseholes that should get and deserve a ban.
>>
>>9625793
At first I wanted to give a serious reply, because I'm aware I can't win. I either am just a anonymous person who could have made shit up or expose my friend and throw her before the wolfs. Because it would give me credibility (don't get me wrong, I still try to pressure her to spill her beans. But I get her fear for getting accused of beeing the one who ruined someones life).

But:
>There is no complete picture, so no way for me to judge correctly.
>Michael is like a fat white version of pedro, except for pedro being a decent cosplayer.
>'harassed' is a big word,

Are you really trying to help your Ephebophilia friend (and again, it's something different from pedo and I don't agree on pedo)? It doesn't look that way when you word it that way.


P.S. if someone thinks I'm too melodramatic about me helping my friend and that the solution is simpel. Please share it with me, because I'm to attached to my friend to be able to find a simple solution.
>>
>>9625903
Nobody can win on here, because we're outsiders. The only one who knows whats going on are the people involved and whatever info they bring out. I'm not saying your friend her claim isn't legit, but you aren't telling what happened to her either. If somebody truely deserves what's coming, like getting banned from conventions etc, I wouldn't defend that person. Even if it would be my best friend, which thom isn't, I met him once.

Michael being an asshole is something that I can judge on, based on his video where he promotes violence. Now he's getting so much backlash at his blacklist page he's crawling back.

There are no 'simple' solutions. The fastest way is to tell a staff member. The 'simplest' for her is to report the guy, and ask them to keep her id hidden. The shittiest thing to do is tell Michael in a 'I want revenge' type of way and get him beaten up.Somewhere in between you can search for people who also claim to have a negative experience with the guy and add all harassment claims together.

I'm not whiteknighting on 4chan, really anon I know better than that.

>Één arrogante lozer die zo'n lijst bijhoud om zijn persoonlijke haat mee te verspreiden verdient ten eerste geen vrienden, volgers en zeker geen aandacht.
Gebruik je kop. Zo'n lijst is gevaarlijk. Zeker in de handen van Cosplay-Nazi's als hij is.

Those are some harsh words.
>>
>>9626531
I have to wonder if a list can be dangerous if the actual people who do the banning (as in: convention organisations) ignore it. Right now, this blacklist is nothing more than some annoying dude on a little crusade. Just another flavour of drama.
>>
>>9626583
Organisations like Animecon will not touch this with a 10 ft barge-pole.
>>
>>9626583
An unofficial blacklist, as in an actual list and not this vendetta FB page, could definitely be a danger even if the current cons ignore it. For starters new cons or events might take such a list serious or even assume it's legit. The odds of this happening might be slim, but are still present as all it takes is an outsider organising something. Terracon for instance jumps in mind, but let's also not forget our friends from Showmasters who rushed in head first into the Dutch con scene last year.

Now imagine such a list or the complaints being public, or the list getting leaked in full detail. Despite it not being official, some people will take everything on it as the truth and start a witch hunt. Knowing this community in which news spreads fast and everyone loves a good gossip, it wouldn't take long for everyone and their mother to hear about those on the list and what they've supposedly have done wrong. Their lives would be affected by it as their reputations are damaged, friends and family members question or turn on them, and depending on the accusations potential employers might refuse to hire them all because of some rumours of old that have been spread over the internet. A lifelong punishment for something that already has been punished, that's not what I call justice.

Even worse, is how there's zero control over an unofficial list. Anyone can be put on it for any reason whatsoever. There is no innocent until proven guilty with these things, instead it's the other way around. All it takes for you to make it onto the list is someone making a false report or you saying something bad about the owner. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if being on /cgl/ would be considered enough reason to be put on such a list list by some people out there...

No need to shame female cossers. I don't him and the whole situation, but just a pro-tip based on common sense: rather than being childish and attack people, you could actually try to educate them if you want them on your side. I'm rather skeptical about pages like these, but I can understand why some female cossers might feel drawn to a page like this if they've been harassed or are scared of harassment.

>>9626651
Tomo: Hold my beer
>>
>>9626625
>>9626633
I too want this to succeed, but I can't help but feel a bit skeptical. The date is one week after Abunai and likely during the same weekend as ACC, meaning Viencon has some serious competition. Not just in terms of date, but also the monetary resources of their potential visitors. To make things a bit more problematic to the majority of weebs, it's also at the start of a new school year which is always a busy and expensive period for anyone attending college or university. Speaking of experience I also know the location is in the middle of nowhere, so day trippers are likely to pass unless they seriously feel like traveling for several hours. Then there's the issue of rounding up enough people to make it worthwhile to even rent a cottage at Center Parcs in the first place. This shouldn't be an issue to us gulls, but it definitely means a fair chunk of people will be forced to pass because they couldn't round up enough people.

But time will tell and I for one hope it will succeed. At least the place itself is nice. I loved how my cottage had roof window right above the bathtub. Being able to stargaze from the comfort of a warm bath is definitely one of those little things that makes life better.
>>
>>9626646
This is up to 4 days of weeb fun at Center Parcs and all of its facilities, party hard, firing up the BBQ and spending the night drinking beer at your cottage with your friends, some random folk you met and maybe the people in the cottage next to yours. Honestly that really doesn't compare to TomoKidsParty.
>>
>>9626682
Hate to say it, but Tomo would kill Viencon if they put it on the same date. Last Viencon was already cancelled because of lack of reservations, which is just a fact. I won't argue quality but we live in the Netherlands after all and a 5,- euro for 2 persons cosplay beach party is going to draw a lot more Dutch people than some yet to prove itself convention with a much higher pricetag to get drunk from drinking beer. If it's just for drinking beer, isn't it much cheaper to do it at home? Do people generally have good impressions on convisitors that just go to cons to get drunk?
>>
>>9626675
I feel like gulls are financially better off than most of the cosplay comm.
>>
>>9626682
>Honestly that really doesn't compare to TomoKidsParty.

So you're saying Tomo is not up to the challenge?
Hear that, Tomo. :)
>>
>>9626723
I'm sure lot's of people in the comm have stacks of money left after Acon and Abunai hotel reservations and the one con they want to visit in EU to see cool cosplay guests..
>>
>>9626721
>>9626725
I'm not saying one is better, just that they are different from eachother. Also let's not forget how Viencon's original plan for 2017 intended to include having actual events throughout the duration of the con. We obviously haven't seen any details yet on their plans for 2018 so what Viencon will really be like isn't clear yet, but I'm fairly sure they'll try to walk this path again further increasing the difference between Viencon and Tomo "Deshima at a lake" Party.

Now yes, if Tomo decides to pull another Tomo and hosts an edition of TomoParty simultaneously with Viencon then it will be Tomo who gets more visitors. As mentioned in >>9626675 Viencon has some major challenges ahead of them which can either make or break their con, with cost and location just being two of them. It's no secret the majority of weebs are poor teenagers, and it's no secret Tomo appeals to these people with their low prices as that's where the real money is to be made. Luckily for us we all know visitor numbers don't say anything about the actual quality of a con.
>>
Last few years Tomoparty (Tomoparty exists for 2 years?) was a week before Abunai, right? So I think we can expect that next year as well. Tomoparty - Abunai - Viencon.

Are there seriously people thinking this circlejerk of a Viencon is gonna work in any shape or form?

>>
>>9627072
Correct me if I'm wrong but I think nothing was planned for Viencon last year. No events, guests or anything was ever announced except the money you need to pay. The only thing they offered before they pulled the plug, was basically a meet with your cosplay friends at Center Parcs. Something you can arrange for yourself, saving you additional costs for a Con?

i get paid 150eu for this, i'm not going to enormous lengths to lower my hourly wage even more
It makes sense when you get paid a standard amount for a prop, you have a set level of quality you get.
>>
>>9627704
>>9627754
Agreed. The makers themselves often have higher standards than their clients. Clean and good work is always necessary, but sometimes, time and budget limit you and more often than not, the client will be more than satisfied with something that doesn't satisfy yourself as much.

Especially if you get paid that little for a prop.
>>
>>9627698

Ah you mean the Winter wonder cosplay ball?

Dunno what regular hourly wage is for you, but 150 euro for a prop doesn't sound like like a small amount of money. Then again I'm not american, where you can ask a lot more for custom made cosplay pieces.
>>
>>9627972
150 for a custom made prop is cheap as fuck, even in Europe. But we're all just used to cosplays from AliExpress and props from Ebay and Etsy that are of questionable quality.

Smoke could've asked much more for that prop if she wanted to.
>>
>>9628017
But she wouldn't have gotten it because us dutch are cheapasses.
>>
>>9628049
Exactly. This is why I'm not doing commissions. I do get enquiries and my first question is often 'what is your budget?' and if it's too low I just refer them to someone else. I'm not cheap.

Maybe you should stop being an entitled little poorfag and attend a crash course in basic economics. You aren't just paying someone for their time, but also the tools and materials used on the item as well as their experience. If you would read back a couple of threads you would had known this isn't just some shitty foam Dva gun made with pre-made patterns. It's a prop made from scratch using only some reference files and made by someone with the experience to guarantee a final product that lives up to one's expectations. If anything Smoke could had asked a lot more for this prop.
>>
I forgot halloween is getting closer, saw a bunch of stuff at xenos. Kind of want to cosplay, wearing a costume = free entrance to the party. But I kind of don't want to ruin a decent costume nobody will recognize with all that beer sloshing around...
>>
>>9627972
lol chinese plastic replicas from this sword are already 170$

>>9628017
yeah i know it's cheap, but it was part of a set and had to try out some things + kinda for a friend. The pattern itself is reselling quite a couple times right now because of nier automata popularity so I don't mind as much.

>>9628072
hence why i'm selling a lot of shit to us customers desu, they're not picky about the budget like dutch are.

If i would make this sword for a complete stranger again I will charge atleast 300eu. Material cost is about 60eu.
I'm quite cheap for cool commissions, but i'm increasing my rates lately since I notice it's simply not worth it, especially when time is getting more expensive for me. I still get a lot of people who think it's outrageous though.
>>
>>9628081
>But I kind of don't want to ruin a decent costume nobody will recognize with all that beer sloshing around...
Assuming you want to be unique and not just slutty [occupation] #41, why not just put together something low-tier from your closet? Do some light sewing, make some accessories and maybe put on some spooky make-up. I mean in the end everybody will probably be too busy enjoying the party to care about your outfit.
>>
>>9627843
>9627843
yeah! Thank you anon! now i need to think of cosplay to wear. (i am guy) any sugestions?

Why are people starting up random events like scream like goku and naruto runs? They are an embarrassment to the anime / cosplay community. And I thought the pantreon hoes were ruining the reputation of cosplayers.

Remember when you were young and did all kinds of things because they were LOL so random eksdee? That's why. Now get off your high horse and let them have fun as you ignore them just like everyone else does.
>>
>>9628434

Well, since it's a gala/ball thing I would say wear a tuxedo. And look at what character you love the most and try to dress up as him I guess?
>>
>>9628434
depends on what you like. Something like a disney prince is an easy choice, but debonair ezreal is a much cooler option.
>>
>>9628434
Tuxedo Mask.
>>
>>9628841
I have a tuxedo. I just don't know a character that has a tuxedo. Thinking of going as Butler or some yoi stuff.

>>9629022
Disney prince would be cool. My base is now black tuxedo.

>>9629397

>>
>>9629810
Is that an A8?
>>

>>
>>9629835
Quick, who is this and why should I care about her?
>>
>>9629822
it is!
>>
>>9629880
Have you done any mods to it? Safety, quality or otherwise?
I've been eyeing 3D printers for the past few days thanks to lots of new inspiration and motivation after Abunai.
>>
>>9629884
Everyone's getting A8 here. It is an ideal printer for modding and it has the largest community for it. For mine i didn't do much yet but i atm upgraded to a glass bed, and some couple changes like printed buttons, belt tensioners and a new fan mouth.
As usual with chinese diy printers it's not very safe or anything, and you'd need to solder some connections or install mosfets/fuses to have a considered somewhat 'safe' printer. It requires you to screw the power cord directly on the psu, and the hotbed connections are not very reliable as i've seen so far.
But for 150eu it prints amazingly.
>>
>>9629889
Yeah, that's the stuff I've found so far as well. Fused power switch, MOSFETs for extruder and bed, soldered bed connections for safety, new fan shroud and maybe some frame stabilization for better print quality.
Building all sorts of kits is one of my hobbies anyway, so having to assemble it myself is the opposite of a problem.

I'm just kinda wondering if I should go the DIY route with something like a modded A8, or buy a slightly nicer kit (but more expensive) to begin with.
>>
>>9629896
I would go with the regular A8 (or A6, basically the newer sister) and then order an AM8 frame immediately
There's not many kits that outclass it afaik.
>>
>>9629913
I'll probably end up getting an A8/A6 or follow a Youtube guide I found to build a full custom Prusa clone or something. We'll see, I'd have to find room for it first.

Side note, talking about A8s and A6s while the conversation isn't about cars feels weird to my inner /o/tist.

The film is not nearly as 'good' as the book. The book makes you think. It's funny at times, but generally it's a lot more about how society nowadays thinks people are a joke but bring them into power anyway. Case in point: Trump.

Is it me or was this years Abunai opening movie just bad rather than the usual "so bad it's good"? Acting-wise everyone is just standing still waiting for their next line, not interacting with their environment and clearly lacking a secondary goal for their scenes. Hard cuts are everywhere, often to the same few camera angles some of which even break the line of action. Even worse, despite all these cuts the pacing just feels extremely sluggish. Audio-wise all the vocals sound hollow, probably due to using only one microphone. Even something as simple and cheap as using clip-on mics recording to the actors mobile phone could had easily prevented this and help deliver a bit more punch to their lines.

Yes I know these are just staff members having fun, but come on. The previous opening movies were so much better both in terms of writing, directing and editing. That gives? Also here's a link to the video for those interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea0QPk_ywpk

The one producing them for three years was really nice, but he quit last year. Did love his cheesy cardboard set, which had cost a lot of time. I wonder who produces the video now
>>
>>9634422
They have a different writer/different group of writers now as well. The Pindakaas en Sushi guy used to be involved, but he quit together with the director/producer.
>>
>>9634178
Totally agree.
>>
>>9634450
Watched the video. Apparently the director is still involved, but doesnt do any of the filming/montaging things he used to do. Explains a lot.
>>
>>9634178
Haven't they all been rather bad? Especially the acting and accents. I remember one that also had this really weird transpositive message forced in for no reason where they kept repeating that Dutch needs genderless pronouns. Filming and editing was decent but the writing and actors are always cringeworthy.
>>
>>9634520
Last year's was fun. The one with the cardboard spaceships and Lord Freezer. It really appreciated it's own sillyness, which, in combination with all the jokes, made me laugh out loud mulitple times. It was obvious everyone had so much fun making it. I think with the candy zombie one, some people just took it and/or themselves too seriously. Not to mention all the people that overestimated their own acting skills... I wonder if it'd be better if they did one of these movies in Dutch. I'm sure most people would atleast sound more natural that way.
>>
>>9634520
>>9634532
To be honest, I think people are a bit too focused on an accent. It takes a lot of time and devotion for some people to be able to pronounce something right. Before judging them on accents, please remind yourself that the fact that they are able to communicate in a second language is already something to be proud of.

Please bear in mind that an accent is very hard to learn and maintain if it is not your and your country's native language.

Sincerely,
A teacher in training who struggles with the British accent for more than a year now.

ps. acting is a whole other thing. Nevertheless, I am not an expert, so I won't be judging them too harshly as I do appreciate the effort they put in it!
>>

Douglas did the Abunai movies for and with the Abunai crew. But the opening and ending of 2016 and the Christmas special https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxfivwvfX5Q were his last contribution.
I missed the 2017 opening but watched a bit of your link and it's just... way too long. Watching the Abunai staff have fun (with bad acting and bad accents) is fine and all, but it goes on for way too long.
I assume they're still looking for help with filming, directing, scriptwriting, cardboard props etc.

It's always busy as fuck at Tomofair. They give out free tickets like candy. Their whole business model is based around pulling in as many people as possible to justify the prices they charge vendors. Wouldn't be surprised if they strip the event of activities and do away with tickets alltogether.

It was a dick move of them to hop right into Nishi's weekend, but in the end these are two very different events and we won't know until after both events are done if Tomo being little shits affected Nishi or not.

And as someone noted before: Nishicon doesn't have to draw in the same number of visitors as Tomofair to 'win'. Nishi 'wins' if they sell enough to survive and people want to come back next year.

I know right. I know one cosplayer who does commissions and asks alot of money for them
>>
>>9638631
Depending on the quality of the commissions, that's reasonable.
>>
>>9638710
>>9638631
Speaking of commissions, does anyone have experience commissioning Dutch cosplayers/costumers? I would love to hear some reviews, good or bad, as I'm interested in getting a cosplay commissioned in the future.
>>
>>9638714
If the commissioner has little or no experience or doesnt do a lot of commissions, avoid requesting an entire costume or anything like that. You might end up waiting a year or nothing at all in the end. Sincerely someone who's been trying to finish a cosplay commission since February but lost all motivation to finish it. Working on someone elses costume isnt as satisfying as your own.

I don't get why people want to see markiplier live, every somewhat popular youtuber gets a stage while they are only funny on camera. Without their editing they wouldn't generate that many views. Having listened to his recent covers he isn't a good singer either.

Somehow I cannot place a reply to someones comment.

But about commissions. I know some good and some bad people. Here's a few I know:

For weapons designs (but not actually made for you because she's on a break right now:) Vicky ligt props & design. She made a amazing lux staff, star guardian jinx rocket & is now working on some stuff for herself.

For props: Bianca something (From MMC?) made for example some damn nice gems for a Sivir cosplay. Also made the weapon of Noctis.

Syrupcookie. Most people know here so no need to tell what she can made or has made. (But I do hear some bad things as well, as in: Not delivering on time.)

Craftsncosplay for costumes I guess. I do not know many other people who make cosplays, maybe some of you guys know? Price can be decent, but sometimes also a bit expensive.

And I know one other, but I am afraid some people will get into shit with that one if I would post the name.
>>
Does anyone knows someone where I can commission some small 3D printed stuff? Good quality. Delivered fast?
>>
>>9639595
If you already have the models you can simply use 3hubs.com to find a hobbyist in your area. Most of them know what they're doing and don't charge much for a print. If you require actual modelling however you could always try some FB groups, Fiver or find a (game) design student.

I know the partyvengers were selling props at etsy as well, the vorpal blade looked interesting.
Commissioners aside, anyone knows what the shop is called that sells foam katanas/link his sword etc? I need something con friendly for 1 or 2 time use.
>>
>>9639627
I do cosplay, but a lot of new cosplayers started really young. I got into anime at age 13, then stopped watching it and started cosplaying at 20/21 years old. Then again my mom didn't like the idea of cosplaying at all so I most likely wouldn't be allowed to buy costumes/go to cons back then
>>
>>9639781
Vicky does etsy sale codes quite regularly, so wouldn't be so sad about it
>>
>>9639632
who was in it this time?
>>
Some people post so many complete costumes for sale, like where do you get the money to buy a load of costumes to wear just once? I already feel guilty when I buy one wig and I have to sell it because I don't like the shade of blonde.
>>
>>9639862
If you sell a lot of costumes and sell/buy them efficiently you can easily buy 3 cosplays for the price of one over the course of a year.
Also some people actually work.
