Im gonna be attending my first con soon with my bro. I dont know much about the culture and i only watch anime in my spare time for fun. I am a tall attractive black dude and i dont want to intimidate my nerd brethren. How do i blend in because im probably not gonna cosplay.
Not everyone cosplays. No one will care about you or pay attention to you outside your circle of friends. It's like going to any event or festival, no one will be intimidated by you unless you slam some 5' 2" lolita up against the wall in a display of dominance.
>>8999914 Make a Naruto headband out of magic markers and hot glue. Once you place it on your head run with your arms behind your back everyone will immediately think you are a harmless weeaboo an no one will find you intimidating. (10/10)
Easily one of the comfiest cosplays for upcoming cons. Post good ones you've seen, ugly ones, and do you prefer certain body types for each of the matsus? I'll begin dumping some stuff [spoiler]I'm semi /fit/ and tan with strong brows and plan to do Kara[/spoiler]
it's an average con, nothing special but not terrible either. it's good as a 'first con' experience in the sense that it's not too overwhelming. the people are most always chill and every time people say they're gonna go, it's usually just to meet new people or hang out with old friends.
so yeah, it's 'hang out' con with some small bonuses on the side cuz there's always the dealer's room and some times decent panels pop up.

Is there any way I can get more information on her fabrics? Like textile content and generally more in depth stuff? All I can seem to find is surface information like where to buy and whatnot. But I want to know about burn tests, stretch testing, and what makes it so different from other fabrics right down to its fibers.
>>9000096 There is nothing that sets Yaya's fabric apart from any other specially fabric. It's suited for certain types of garments, but really Joann's just brought some differect kinds of fabric to an audience that has never seen half the stuff at better prices elsewhere.
I just found out about this today. I'd feel pretty stupid not going considering it's like a 2 minute drive for me. None of the panels really interest me much, but the exhibitors and artist alley don't look terrible and it's not like I had anything better to do this weekend.
Let's have a thread about panels. What were the best or worst panels you've ever to? Also, what was the most interesting? Awkward panel stories are more than welcome.
I've been made panel coordinator for a small con this year, so it's my first time. I'm going to be hosting a few guest ones in particular so I'm rather nervous. Since it's a small con in a regional area the theme this year is "101" where we're going to be introducing various aspects of anime, gaming and cosplay to newcomers. I wonder if anyone would be so...

>>8989813 Don't be nervous on the mic. No one is really there to just heckle you, they're def there just to have a good time with people that like the stuff they like. Just remember to have fun honestly. Being a host is all about entertaining your crowd. Have some light banter, interact with them. Ask them questions about their favorite anime, game, cosplayer or whatever.
I actually really enjoyed the "hentai worth watching" panel at AX last year. It was super easy to tell who was there because they wanted to laugh at some absurd porn and who was there to fap, so avoiding the later camp was a breeze. It was really the presenter's senses of humor that made the whole thing fun. The fact that they were all having a good time made it a worthwhile experience for me.
In the previous thread >>8973389 we discussed out-of-place cosplay at Elfia, made some remarks on Abunai's new idiotic room policy, and discussed what makes someone a slooty attention whore. As always we also talked shit about a bunch of cosplayers who felt the need to defend themselves on /cgl/. As usual, I'd like to remind those people that you are all a bunch of fucking idiots for responding here, and instead of wasting your time here you should spend your time improving your cosplays and shitty personalities. Also there was some... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This is my home con so I'm pretty chill with what I bring. I live close enough to the con center that I don't even need a hotel. Gonna be Sadie from Steven U as well as a secret cosplay I'm working on.
>>8981684 No. Just like every convention, if you wait too long and purchase a month before the convention, the ticket price is higher.
>>8981668 >What are your plans? Bringing two new people to the convention! Both have been dying to go to a convention, but none of their friends are interested, so I told them to come along with me! We are staying 20 minutes away right down the 101. Easy mode and free stay since its at a relatives. I even... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8981684 Depends on what you're trying to do but for me, not really. Even going as press it's still kind of meh for the things you need a badge for. I cover events but only because I have to earn the badge back.
>>8981708 Dealer's hall line only sucks on the first day because it's like the only thing for a lot of people to do that day. I'm not sure why people wait in line for it because it's not any more unique than another convention dealer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8968523 >>8970920 Petticoat store link: shop60113340.taobao.com I got petticoats that appeared to have more average poof based on the customer photos. The white one is very short and made of incredibly hard tulle. It's perfect for layering but will probably be pretty itchy against bare skin. It's hard to tell from the way they're hung, but the black one is A-line and the pink one is cupcake-shaped. Both have enough poof for a normal coordinate, and the pink one fits perfectly under...

It's not that guys can't learn sewing/makeup/hair or even that they are at a disadvantage in that area. Most of the ladies I know that cosplay didn't do any of that stuff until they started cosplaying.
I have no issue with people cosplaying characters of different nationalities, but only similar skin toned characters since a black person is going to look pretty odd in a rozen maiden cosplay. But shit like this makes my blood boil. Cosplay isn't an all asian exclusive club where they are allowed to shit on everyone of other nationalities in the hobby. If a western person did this with a superhero or comic book character there would be outrage. Fuck everyone who justifies this shit, it's blatant racism and jealously from plastic barbie doll asians that are jealous... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I really want to do anne or futaba. Futabas so cute and Anne is basically catwoman. Though, I don't want to cosplay them before the games out. One time I wanted to cosplay someone from fire emblem before I played it and ended up hating them when I actually played it. But I don't really hate anyone from persona 3 or 4?
I dont normally make threads but I'm not really sure what thread I could post this in. So lets talk about shitty sellers and websites I guess.
Basically I found a really scummy general jfash site and it just rubs me the wrong way.
They sell a lot of taobao/aliexpress stuff and thats fine, there are tons of resellers in the world. But originally I found them since a popular artist has a design of hers there. They worked together and either they had the shirts printed by them or outsourced. Anyways I feel like this would confuse people since "oh wow they... Comment too long.

Gulls, do you have a dedicated room or space where you prefer to work on your cosplay? Or plans to create one?
I'm moving and getting a bigger room (11' x 15') and wanted to section a corner into a cute cosplay workshop area. I never really had space for one before, and I'm sick of having to make room for my sewing machine whenever I want to make something. Any ideas on how to make a cute and effective space?
put stuff up on the walls so it's not taking up table space. my favorite thing in my workspace are these ikea bathroom hooks I painted white and use for scissors. always a pair within reach but keeps them from getting buried in fabric / knocked on the floor / lost
>>8991015 I'm working on setting one up, I've got a tiny alcove off of my room between my room and the stairs where I'm going to put my great grandmothers sewing desk I recently inherited. I'm going to have more space when I move out but till then I'm happy to have just any place to put my crafts.
Any one got inspo on tiny sewing spaces btw? Trying to figure out how best to organize mine and save on room.
I keep all my stuff in a closet, and my sewing machine on an old sewing machine (the kind that "tuck" into table) with a chair in an open space, I use the old sewing machine's table's drawers to keep chalks, pins, measuring tapes, ect. The hard thing I find is finding somewhere to spread out fabric.
Some cute boxes from the dollar store hold bias tapes/zippers/ect ect that I keep on the top shelf, thread hanging on the inside door, hangers hold current projects. I have a closet organizer thing (the hanging ones) that I use the shelves to store fabrics and such for current projects, and keep patterns in the "drawer" part. Floor has two of those cheap walmart drawers with the 3 sections that I keep fabric scraps in, and there's a small open space left that I put rolls of vinyl and interfacing. I keep a small cup with my scissors in it next to my sewing machine as well. Floor length mirror moves around but I usually put it in front of the closet door if I have everything out I need, and dress form usually stands next to the sewing machine.
We've had OC cosplay threads in the past, but they're generally not too popular.
It's not a yes or no thing, it depends on the design and presentation.
Nicely designed OCs are generally well received, just wearing a generic uniform (like people do with Shitgeki no Kyojin OCs) or sparkleweeb OCs are generally laughed at. Throwing on plainclothes and claiming to be an OC is also pretty lame.
With anime conventions, which non anime fandom you like the most and the least? From video games, comics, movies to bloody hell kpop. What fits the best with anime cons and which ones needs to get their own con?
