Anyone got one to share (from either a staff member OR a attendee POV it doesn't matter)

The only one I can think of is a security guard at AX losing his shit at a girl for standing outside the dealer's hall (when it wasn't even that crowded) and then threatening to kick her out of the con when she started walking to get away from him and he took it as her ignoring him

I went to a small con by myself. I spent time wandering around and people watching because my friends weren't there yet. A man from security accosted me 3 times and asked me why I was passing by so often. It was like he'd never seen an adult woman alone before. I had to pass by his table to go to the bathroom and he would say something to me or try to make eye contact every time he saw me, even when I was with my friends who showed up later.
Not really a horror story, but he made me uncomfortable.
Someone a year++ ago confirmed that he was hotel staff and that at a convention (dragoncon?) They had to bring in hazmat suits because a room was entirely caked in fecal matter (tv, bed, ceiling fan, etc)

People called bullshit until he posted his hotel badge and credentials lmao
Bump because this kind of thing is highy interesting to me.

Only thing I've ever had happen was this one time when I was in a line and a staffer (some volunteer fuck, not one of the real staff) started yelling at us to "GET AGAINST THE WALL", like we were convicts or some shit. It didn't matter that we were standing real close to the wall, and weren't impeding anyone or anything. Oh, no. We HAD to be all up on that wall like lizards before they were satisfied.

If you tell a volunteer...

So I've been wondering: 'What can I do to help my hair?' I've moved my skin regimen to an eight step process, but I'm falling short in the hair care department.

I've started using OGX shampoos and have a Moroccan argan oil I apply to the lower three inches several times a week. Any recommended masks or anything to step up my game is appreciated.

Do you think conventions will ever be struck by copyright laws? With all the fanart debates and character rights arguements, what do you think the odds are of cosplayers and fan artists being hit by lawsuits?

Pretty non existent till they try to sell their stuff on a larger scale.

Cosplay doesnt pose a threat to the copy right holders, its free advertising and an expression of fan passion. But if you start to mass market stuff you cosplay, like say, if you cosplay a disney princess and decide to start selling disney princess dresses on a bigger scale than individual commissions, thats when the cease and desist letters might stop dropping.

The cosplayers in question were only told to stop when they started to sell their uniforms, at least to my understanding.
The way copyright allies to garments is a 1000000% different ball game than 2d art. While a fanartist making an illustration featuring a character whose original depiction was also an illustration is violating copyright (arguments about transformative work aside), making a three dimensional garment based on an illustration is not. Garments can't really be copyrighted on the same sense - you can copyright sewing patterns and the illustrated pattern on fabric and once in a great while you can patent means of production if you can prove they're very innovative. But not...

Garments are not subject to copyright protection but character designs are, as are things like Storm Trooper helmets. A lot of the superhero type characters are also trademarked. So some cosplay is 100% legal and some of it is clearly infringing, and then there's some stuff in between.

Can peeled cuc be the mascot? Or perhaps pic related?
That would be awesome, I really want to get the blouse in the pic related along with some other items from this shop

(from AliExpress Android)

But idk if there is a taobao shop with the items at better prices.

Fabric shopping? I love my store.

>Meeting shop attendants who get interested in what I'm making.

It's a pretty large store which sells fabric only, from godawful furniture coverings, to wedding dress material, and most of my cosplaying dreams. The workers often have to help their customers find the what suits their need, nerds like me included. Once I bought fabric for a cape and the lady was nice and excited enough to help me roll out enough fabric to shake about, understanding what the final product would behave like....

What cosplay restrictions? Last I heard there were no restrictions except maybe nudity.
They really want to be "family friendly" this year for some reason. Skirts two inches from the knee, no bare shoulders, etc etc
Can I see your cosplay?

Two years ago when they announced the theme as Kaiju vs Mecha at closing ceremonies I remember the entire place exploded in excitement and last year when they announced the theme as "field day" you could hear literal crickets chirping and t.b.h I still laugh about that.
I was in closing and I didn't understand what they were announcing (why would you call it "field day" and not just "sports"?) I got a lot more interested after the con when I realized what they were talking about. My friends were planning a big haikyuu group anyway so I'm excited.

I've been searching for decent looking lightsaber replicas/toys that i can use, however all of them seem to cost far too much, do you guys know of any place I can get quality lightsabers (I live in New Zealand btw)
8 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Your choices are either plastic toys or $300 ones. Also, use the help thread.
Quality ones are expensive, anon. That's if you want a LARP grade quality so you can actually hit people.

I got mine from Saberforge, but only because I drove three hours and showed up at their offices. That's the only way to get one in a decent amount of time after the new movie.

I've seen and got to play a bit with Ultrasaber's. They're lighter (but everything is lighter than mine), but still pretty awesome.

I don't know about any New Zealand specific ones.

I was thinking of putting together Batman's League of Shadows costume as seen in this picture.

The only problem is, I have no idea what combination is used on the top portion of the costume. It looks like a japanese tunic of some sort plus some undergarment, but I'm not completely sure.

Can someone help this idiot out?

Another clearer picture of the entire outfit.
uhm a judo gi? and thick woolen clothes underneath?

Hmmm. What would the linen beltbuckle be then? Is it traditionally part of another kind of outfit?

i already heard about a few people who are pissed what with AA shit not being confirmed before hotel reg
Good. This needed to be done.
hate it....the lack of communication up front about it means that people get shafted. an easier procedure would be to limit hotel reg to 1 room per name.....this cuts down on scalpers at least.

i bought my badge today.....if i can't get a room i'm asking for a fucking refund or doing a chargeback on my CC. i was going to ghost this year, but the hotel debacle really canned that one.
