Me and my girlfriend are split on whether to go to Comic Con Tampa (August) or Dragoncon (September) this year. We're only going to one.
We've both been to Dragoncon twice, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I know Comic Con San Diego is the shit, but I never hear anything about Tampa. I've compared the two websites and CC hardly has anything posted as far as celebrity guest list and events. That kind of concerns me. DC has more info posted despite being a month further away.

TBCC was a train wreck. It was so unorganized and the staff were clueless. I don't care who they get as a guest I won't be giving them my money again. DragonCon might be crowded but at least there are plenty of other entertaining things to do. TBCC was bland, the only attraction they have is their guest list.
I think the most expensive fabric I've bought was fake fur at $30/yard.
The most expensive costume I've ever made was around $700. 10 yards of bridal satin, 50 yards of organza, and then a floor length wig, drywall stilts, aluminum tubing and feathers for wings, and some Wonderflex. And ultimately it was still kind of rubbish because it was 2009 and I didn't know what I was doing.
>>8847907 Jesus, for $80 a yard it better have been a hagoromo or had unicorn-hair warp threads or something.
Posting because I'm a fatty who is working hard on losing weight and getting in shape. I'm about 180 pounds and I want to try to get back down to 130. Post good workouts, good diet tip, what music you listen to during workouts, etc.
>>8847209 My store started getting good fur last year. It's pretty expensive though so most people still just buy the pubes-on-burlap kind. Unfortunately the good quality stuff still only comes in hideous colors and franken-animal prints.

>>8846481 Are you the same anon that posted awhile ago about getting (and coording) the white Karami JSK and pink/white AH skirt? Don't let C's opinion get to you, it's what you think that matters; they're your clothes after all. Maybe she doesn't like BTSSB's older style, that's fine, it's her opinion, it doesn't mean that what you bought is shit. I understand that you're upset but don't think about selling your stuff yet. Wait until you have the JSK and skirt in your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What do you say when your friends are bad at cosplay or lolita? Do you try to help them? Do you lie and say they look nice so you don't hurt their feelings?

>>8845919 If she's as sweet as you say, she'd probably be up for helpful advice from a more experienced cosplayer. I would ask if she's willing to listen to concrit before just blurting out all the things wrong with her costumes though.

Why does the East Coast treat cosplay related events so much better than West Coast? West Coast has some good cosplay related panels but cons always just stick them in panel rooms and do little to promote them. Meanwhile the West Coast just treats these events like a giant free for all where they'll take anyone.
Meanwhile cons like Anime Boston or Tora-con actually feature these events. Boston puts cosplay chess and cosplay death match on the main stage, they get hyped crowds

East and West coast con culture is just incredibly different in a LOT of ways. It's still possible to get free photos on the west coast, meanwhile greenbox newbies are charging 150$ for three photos at Katsu. AB and Ota both focus a lot on getting asses in chairs due to space constraints, so any big draw event gets hyped, but the weather out West is always nice and people can wander around outside doing shoots instead. Lots of factors culturally.
But probably the answer has to do with how incestuous most con staff is. A lot of people work for multiple cons in their... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Toracon's cosplay chess only works because it's a college club that gets to work on it all year. Outside of a condensed community like that it's hard to pull off something like that and also it took them years to refine the process and is only helped by the fact some graduates are still around. Previous years were awful and gave 10 minutes of stage time to terrible gags. With a regular con taking community volunteers you would have too much turnover and flakes.
Also west coast has a lot of game shows and it's own unique panels like Banzai Arcade.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have a question about Japanese shopping services that let you bid on auction sites. Normally, I use Buyee a lot, not the cheapest but I like how easy it works and that they only bill you after you've won, so no deposits of any kind. The only downside is, that they won't let you edit the amount on the invoice. Sometimes I use from Japan so I can change the invoice on the package, to avoid or reduce customs the high fees we get in the Netherlands. But unlike Buyee, From Japan (and Japonica) requires a full in-advance deposit (I understand why that is not... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going for sure, it's become a tradition between my close group of friends and I. We're just trying to find a place to stay (which our one friend is supposed to ask her mom about their timeshare in AC).
I've never been to AC and I'm used to the greenery and quiet of Somerset so I'm curious to see how things will turn out this year.
>>8845929 went for the fist time last year, had no idea that this had been going on literally down the street from me. I think that having the beach nearby will present some nice photo ops, but nowhere near the diversity in location that somerset had
So what ribbons did you end up getting. I know some of my friends got close to 300. I was there mostly Saturday and wasn't trying very hard, so I got just a few. All the ones I got were from friends except for the lesser dog ribbon. I found that one on the ground on Sunday when I was picking up a friend for lunch.
I know for most of us it's winter time, but can we have a floral dress/clothes thread? Lolita, Natural Kei, Cult Party Kei, Mori Girl, or whatever. As long as flowers are the main part of the print or design.
