posted this in the last one but whatever
So I'm going into the military and now that I'll be able to have money and a car I want to go to more conventions, only been to one.
However I'm a bit worried about them finding out my shit, I am a dude and I don't know how common it would be to have costumes just hanging in my closet. I know that people do room searches and I don't want to be embarrassed.
>>
Good feel-I'm starting to run out of room in my closet for all my lolita shit. I'm either going to have to take out the shoe/hat rack or find a better way to store things....

I want to stop bulking and cut to do pyramid head but I'm not big enough to justify the cut.
I was going to start work on the cosplay but the Dallas Makerspace software engineering team managed to rope me into being a code monkey for a game they're working on. I always wanted to be a game Dev and the team is professional so I jumped at the opportunity, but now I don't have enough time to work on the cosplay again :/

Have been trying to put in an effort to talk to more randoms at cons, usually exchange insta/snap/fb with these people but I haven't really made any real friends yet, or at least anyone that I really enjoy talking to past tolerating them and I've talked to so many people within this last year. This is starting to get really tiring and discouraging. I'm guessing I'm somewhat likeable though as they do ask to chill at cons and I now hang out with those who live close by.

I don't even remember the last time I had a genuinely fun time or conversation, period.

Natsuki;

I'm glad you're done feigning friendship with me; for both of our sakes. It was always clear to me that you were only capable of fair weather friendship and secret complaint--I was never emotionally invested to show for it.

I hope you can find friends who are more tolerable of your use and abuse; or that you grow to become more than the needy child who assumes herself to have an all seeing eye and infallible judgement. Your vision was comically foggy; but you did let me know about someone i didn't realize i'd hurt; and im glad i was able to apologize to them as a result of your tantrum. I find no reason to apologize for my transparency about my mental health, especially sinceit garnered you cutting ties.

All in all, you've given yourself more trouble than you realize by waiting this long. Your life is inexorably marked by our interactions--for example, I hope you don't associate your tattoo with me; so you can still enjoy it without the pangs of your hatred towards me. It's good that you got solo Natsuki photographs at the group shoot; since you chose to walk away from Sayori, too... I wonder if you and Yuri will remain friends?

I won't lie and say that i'll miss you; or that i care that you're gone. I will admit, I am surprised it was you who decided to cut ties in the end. It is convenient though; as those who are able to be fooled by your manufactured narrative will surely follow along with you.

I hope you find happiness, and something real to hold on to.

All the best,
Monika

Just gotta say, this is some bullshit. If you've been with someone for that long, anything which is clearly effecting you to that degree BECOMES your partner's business. That's what 'partners' means. Your happiness and wellbeing is always going to be important to your partner and it's the most basic, important thing to include them in.

Either he is fucking around behind your back and doesn't respect you, or he really is just going through some shit and doesn't understand how to deal with a relationships like an adult. Give him the benefit of the doubt and let him know why it's important to talk to you.

I was dating someone like that, and believe me, it's not worth the effort to be neglected like that. I'm not someone who usually says 'd u m p h i s a s s' but it's warranted for a case where someone is so emotionally stunted that your emotional needs are not being met.

I'm with someone who is much more responsive to me now, and I'm much less depressed and anxious. Please do yourself a favor and find someone else who respects your feelings more.

Hey anon, I also dated someone like this. Long term, almost a decade together. I spent a lot of time anxious about what I did/didn't do, crying, and frustrated. Like you, I could be crying right next to him and he'd ignore it or at most sigh and complain about how he's not going to "indulge this behavior" anymore. I ended up breaking it off with him because, while I did catch him cheating a couple times, more than that I just felt like I was in this incredibly toxic dependence on him and being neglected emotionally. I took the lessons I learned both as a result of his behavior and my own and tried to do much better and be open and level-headed in future relationships, and now I've been in a long-term one that is much healthier and more emotionally stable. I'm not trying to say "gooooorl dump his ass" but you need to evaluate what the issues are from both perspectives and if this is something you can resolve or if it's something you can only learn from. Good luck anon.

It's just an excuse to garner authority over people and feel good because the victim can never be wrong and any punishment given should reflect the damage upon the victim. So the more victimised they act, the more power they have to hurt others.

He cheated on you and you stayed with him???? What is it about you gulls that makes you afraid to just leave someone if they aren’t treating you well. They don’t have a legal bind on you (assuming you aren’t married). Life is grand and full of wonder and you decide to force yourself to stay with crappy people because ‘no one else will love me hurrr’ maybe if you loved yourself or realized there is more to life than dating you’d be happier. Inb4 single anon doesn’t know what they’re talking about. My father was a deadbeat asshole and I told myself I would never let a man treat me like that. I’ve been in a good relationship for years now.

Today at work we got an email from HR about the some Halloween crap and a costume contest they're going to have at work. My company has been on a teamwork kick recently and suggested every department pick a theme for costumes. This made me groan because everyone in my department knows I do conventions and cosplay at this point. So to try and nip it in the bud, I send out the following message.

A: I am not making ANYONE'S costume for them. B: I'm not going to participate in this C: Any inquiries about costumes will be done on company time. Don't talk to me about this during lunch/breaks.

So of course there's immediately a message from someone who has a wonderful idea that they think EVERYONE needs to participate in. I send them a qm to tell them that no one is actually going to do any work and is going to sluff off whatever to the few people actually interested in the idea and expect costumes to be made for them. So yeah, I get told that I'm being "negative." Not to mention that the costume contest has traditionally been an ass kissing contest where company VPs get awards while putting in minimal effort with store-bought costumes despite having more money to spend than us working people. Seriously. NOT INTERESTED. Over the day I get people asking if I can make their costume for them or why don't I want to participate when I make such good costumes. People just don't understand that I'm a professional who makes more money than I would as a costumer. This is my hobby and I do it for fun. You're trying to make me work for work outside of work hours.

Really got me bummed and drinking tonight. Just thought I'd share.
>>
>>9992247
You sound like a drag.
no wonder HR emailed you.
>>
>>9992247

"Ah. I really want to particpate but I'm fully booked all the way until <date>/preparing for X, I don't even have enough time to make a costume for myself. Goshdarndiddlydoodly, if only I'd known about this event earlier, but I can't make anything without blowing off my mate who has seen me through three breakups and five car wrecks and has cancer and may die sometime soon so I can't just blow him off for this."

I'm nowhere close to being a sociopath but company "teamwork" shit brings out my inner lying twofaced backstabber demon just so I can be left alone. I swear, it's a conspiracy for the laziest asses to dump work on the unsuspecting kindly souls and overload their kindness until it dies out, so society as a whole will eventually only consist of mentally depressed people and the sociopaths who manipulate them.

(Obviously, replace the details with whatever sounds plausible for you. You can milk the "my friend is dying and I don't want to talk to anyone/how dare you bum a free costume off me" angle as well)

You're under no obligation to make anything for anyone else, but you don't have to be such a jackass to your coworkers either.

just found out my fiancé is a fucking hebephophile.
he says it's mainly toward anime girls and he would never do anything to any real girl. also said he used to be kinda into loli and the likes because he just loves petite bodies and being with me (having a similar body type and being small) fueled it.
i know he feels bad about it but i'm feeling sick in my stomach to know he had a boner from a dream about a 14yo looking girl rubbing on him. he was perfect,he even supported me cosplaying and went to cons with me but now i just don't know.
why are men such fucking disgusting pigs? i thought he was different but i was wrong it seems

the reassuring thing is, he also like thicc and curvy girls and finds them just as attractive so it might just be a specific attraction to petite body types...right???

Don't dump your bf for thought crime, instead be happy that you come so close fulfilling his fantasies.

I'm more and more coming to the conclusion that I'm going to kill myself one day.

I hate to be that person, but yeah? If I had a blonde character and used my black hair, it's inaccurate. If I did brown eyes for a character that has red eyes, it's inaccurate. If there's a white-skinned character and you have black skin, it's inaccurate. The reality denial is the worst with these people. I think it's fine to not switch up your skin color since it's a heated topic for the foreseeable fucking future thanks to people like this, but saying you look more accurate than a white person doing it is just putting your head in the sand.

Calling them celebrities is a stretch.
>>
>>9992614

A big stretch.
>>
>>9992609
See... It’s not so much accuracy, but that every skin colour should be considered ‘standard’. For example, white people cosplaying anime characters with Asian names are somewhat inaccurate since they do not look Asian. But it’s still acceptable because the features they are born with are ‘standardized’; we still recognize them as the character they’re cosplaying. We won’t describe the cosplay as ‘White Sakura Haruno’, it’ll just be ‘Sakura Haruno’.

Another analogy could be noses. Some characters are depicated with small nose (or no nose). If someone with a big beak nose cosplayed them, their nose would might not be accurate but it would still be ‘standardized’. So no ‘Big Nose Sailor Uranus’ or whatever, just ‘Sailor Uranus’.

The same courtesy should be awarded to darker skin cosplayers imo. If they decide to cosplay a character, they shouldn’t have to jump through loops to be considered as cosplaying as X character (vs cosplaying as Black AU version of said character). By darkening your own skintone beyond your natural range is just adding on to the idea that skin tone is a thing that people shouldn’t suspend their disbelief over. My opinion would probably change if the global culture changes (so if skin tone has the same cultural baggage as eye colour, then you can go ham and do what you want).
>>
Who else/exercisedependency/ here?
>>
>>9992614

When they get to the point where even non-cosplayers know their name they are beyond a normal geek. Especially if they end up voicing a character for a cartoon series and having a videogame character modeled after them.

I see a lot of POC cosplayers who have shitty costumes that wouldn't get attention on anyone who then blame it on being a POC.
I'm not going to judge someone for being the wrong race for a character, because most people in the US are the wrong race for anime characters. But if your costume is shitty and lacks effort, I'll judge the same as I would anyone else with a half assed costume.
Don't blame racism for your laziness.

That makes zero L3s and Project Leads for 3 months and no one getting promoted into the position but doing the work for less pay.

Yeah. I'm not going to use the term POC because it's not so much a person's race/ethnicity that the cosplay community discriminates on, but skin colour (Asians are POC, but are almost revered by the community). But yeah, I agree, I really hate it when dark-skinned cosplayers get boosted, but it turns out to be some shitty closet cosplay. It's like they got traction only because SJWs wanted to feel good about themselves. Performative 'wokeness' is pretty gross and make people look like fetishists.

On the other hand, it's also dumb to play "I don't see race, I only see skills" because black/brown cosplayers objectively get less attention than their peers. It takes effort and time to build up your craftmanship, but if you get no feedback for your efforts then you're more prone to quitting. It's not a matter of laziness, just being realistic about what you spend your time on. The reality is that attractiveness plays a big part of how good people perceive your cosplay as and how much people interact with you on social media. If you want more good POC cosplayers, then you should encourage the newbies who have potential. But alas, among the sea of newbies with similar skill levels, even I would rather follow the ones whom I found more attractive.

>>9992807
Genderbents are different. That's people willingly doing an AU version because they think it'll suit them better. If you want to talk gender, then let's talk about crossplay. Generally, people who crossplay want to be perceived as said character and not X version of said character.

>We absolutely would describe it as 'White X', if the character in question had dark skin.
Which sucks and is counterproductive, imo. Though I believe the reason for this stems more from the fact that there are very little characters with dark skin in the media and blackness often portrayed as a 'special trait' kinda. If the character is standard enough (like Casca from Berserk), then no one really calls it 'White X'.

On an unrelated note, I really like a guy right now, but they like sexy women. I'm over here in baggy shirts and thigh highs. I mean, I'm not changing the way I dress just to appease them, but damn... huh. I need to lay on the sex appeal, but I instead just look like a pink marshmallow.

OP of the Dieselpunk thread here. We've hit the image limit but I'm shocked at how well it was received! I was worried I was gonna get vitriol that'd make acid jealous but got good reception.

I was going to post the thread in /fa/, but was advised otherwise.

I'm liking this board. This is a good bard.

Finally finished cleaning up the apt after prep + packing for a big con, got rooms for next year booked, now I just feel sort of empty.

Also, I'm afraid to start early work on costumes as I got burned this year by "oops you started lifting and your shoulders got bigger than you designed for" which caused last-minute stress. Or maybe that's just the procrastination talking. What do you do about body uncertainty versus actually getting to work on sewing stuff?

Sounds like you may have time until then, right? If that's not the case and it doesn't work out, there are playthroughs that you can watch if you're desperate; far from ideal but at least you'll be acquainted with the thing you're cosplaying from. Or, you know, wait until you actually play the game to cosplay from it.

Honestly, prior to 2015, no one ever cared that I used 'they' or 'their' when speaking. It's only recently that suddenly people comment on my use of those pronouns.
>>
>>9993371
ESL means you speak English as a second language. You would do well to check in with >>9993373 advising you to read more about 'singular they'.

However, that would be giving myself too much credit. 'They/their/them' is commonly used among speakers in the Southeastern United States, especially among rural populations (e.g. "Did Bob come over?" "Yeah, they stopped by to pick up their textbook earlier."). It's a regional dialect thing. That's not really important, but it's something to remember if you do have to speak with people from that part of the U.S or when reading literature.

yea, because prior to then, no one did it when the sex of the person was known.

I live in Alabama, I never hear they unless it refers to multiple people or someone of an unknown sex.

What >>9993646 said
I'm going to write more to the article, but some things require more research like the connection between /cgl/ and lolcow. There is obviously an overlap between the two, but I'm not sure the specifics or how to exactly explain the relationship.
If anyone has suggestions, let me know.
>>
>>9993554
I'm rooting for you, anon. I hope your dresses continue to make you happy every single day.
>>
>>9993665
lolcow was founded because we weren't allowed to have threads calling out specific people or "bullying" on cgl anymore
The reason lol cow's lolcow board is /pt/ is because the original lolcow that cgl followed was PixiTerri
Lolcow grew from there
>>
>>9993554
Why did he even think he could make that demand?

In TN, people use it all the time, especially in the Appalachian mountains. Prior to 2015, people weren't involved in some weird Tumblr civil war involving pronouns. If you're asking if I use it out of some weird ploy for 'gender neutrality'. No. I'm sorry to disappoint you. That's not the reason. You've put way too much thought into my use of 'they/their'. I deleted this to add something so you realize I'm not being bitchy toward you:

It's just really weird because in the past year or two, I've gotten a lot of people like you who ask about it negatively. Alternatively, I have people stop me to go, "Oh, are they 'agender'?" I'm always like, "What the fuck are you are talking about?" "Oh, well, you used 'they'." It's really weird. No, I'm not referring to someone of some atypical gender identity. I'm just a hick, that's all. I apologize for causing confusion.
>>
>>9993665
The anon in >>9993673 is right. It involves information outlined in the sticky. /cgl/ use to be really bad for picking on particular people, keeping up with e-drama, and that sort of thing. In fact, sometimes people would get doxxed as a result. So, the mods had enough, and decided that discussing the personal lives of singular people was no longer allowed on /cgl/. You can discuss anything related to fashion regarding a singular person, but no more gossip about people's personal lives. So, therefore, lolcow was born from those people who wanted a place to gossip about people's personal lives.
>>
>>9993673
>>9993699
thanks!

So /cgl/ is known for diaper thong lolitas, butt hole inspection, and bullying people.
Is... is there anything actually *good* I can add to the article? This board introduced me to lolita and j-fashion, so it had a positive affect on my life, but what about internet culture as a whole?
Did cgl have anything to do with the creation of lace market?

I don't think so re: lacemarket, but there's Derpy-chan which imo is one of the more wholesome things to have come from this board.
>>
>>9993715
The feels thread might be known for those things, but that's not the first thing that comes to mind when I think of /cgl/. If you use the site like you're suppose to, it's where you can learn about new brands, hair and makeup, and different styles. You just gravitate toward the shit, that's all. Most ignore the blatant trolls.
>>
>>9993735
Sure, I know this board isn't totally bad, I've enjoyed it for ~5 years. I've met 3 people who use to browse /cgl/ and all of them stopped because of bullying though, so this board does have its problems, specifically on the lolita side.
>>
>>9993636
>>9993646
Why are all the board memes butt-related??

>>9993770
Because /cgl/ is a bunch of silly gays rping females so as not to be called sissies.

Is it weird for a guy to be into lolita/jfash and want to be friends with people who wear it? I just think it's really cool fashion. I'm not a fucking loser who think's it's fetish stuff or "sexy". I just don't want to come off the wrong way.
>>
>met my favourite indie designer

>>9993894
Not weird at all. Next time you see a lolita in public just approach her, assuming she's not busy. Be polite and asses the situation before you talk to her to make sure that it's fine, and you'll be okay.
>Excuse me, hi, sorry to bother you, I just wanted to say your coord is lovely, you look beautiful, I love lolita fashion
You don't have to say all of this but this is a good way to approach us, at least in my opinion. Yes, use the word "coord" and namedrop the fashion, namedrop the brand she's wearing too if you recognize it. You may not immediately make a friend out of an encounter like this but you won't come across as creepy if you just say something nice and make it clear you recognize the fashion for what it is.
