Akumakon is on the 22nd.
Who's going? Any plans for cosplay? Any panels you guys are planning to go to?
I would've liked to go to the later panels /pub quiz on Friday, but I can't make it that day (or that late regardless)
Got banned. Let my doppel get loose in a local knacker's yard and basically fucked the local satellite internet.
Anyone got to Kaizoku?
Are the VIP passes really a load of expensive bollox?
>Do bathe and wear deoderant.
Already to that
>Dont act like a cunt
Ya, that to but I an be a dick however :^)
I was on the improvey thing, I was on it as a contestant. Me and my GF volunteered. We'd no idea what we signed up oft but it was fun. There was a Kylo Ren Cos Player who was hilarious on the game
Were you the Requiem cosplayer? We had a chat after my panel, I didn't expect to see you on 4chan, hah.
Was the Kylo ren guy the same one who was the Bad cop? He was hilarious, I wonder if he'd done improv before.
Ya, me and the GF walked into some voice actresses Q&A cause we taught the improve was in there. After 5 minutes we just decided to go and coincidently at the same time when someone in the audience said some spoiler about what ever show she was in and she taught we got up and left cause of the spoiler and she was like "Please don't go, I promise there will be no spoilers after this"
We dropped spaghetti, felt awkward for ourselves and that poor lady
Anyone else think the trade hall was bootleg city? Last year they had some pretty cool new stuff. This year they just had bootlegs and that one legit trader who look mortified to be there.
How magician's merch keep getting tables selling stolen artwork on tshirts is beyond me. Fuckin hell mate.
I was so fucking delighted to see that Eirtakon refused them a table this year, about time a con said no to their shenanigans. Although yer man was there the whole weekend and I spotted him giving shit to some committee members in the Trade Hall. Fucking idiot. Doubt that'll convince them to give you a table!
He's absolute plonker. My friend asked him if one of his plushies were bootleg or not (they obviously were) and he said no, he went to japan and got them himself so they were totes 100% legit
He also said he personally drew the fanart on his tshirts. Yet I know three artists he's stolen from.
Fucking twat should be banned. Selling bootlegs is one thing, but lying so obviously about it is so so worse. Like replay sell bootlegs but they admit it so it's not as bad. But magician's merch are awul is every sense of the word.
People are just reaching to be the one with the latest story so any chance encounter is going to turn into an exaggerated adventure in autism. I was there with a friend of the group she was with, she was looking for her friends who were standing there since the start of the event. To anyone who can actually spot social interaction that would have been obvious, which is ironic if you think about who we're talking about.
I also question the feminist credentials of someone who's supposedly pro-choice but thinks transwomen are men that should be aborted. Probably some weeb that got dragged there by the socially well adjusted girlfriend.
>thinks transwomen are men that should be aborted
That's a bit of a stretch. I think Potsy should have been aborted too but that doesn't mean I think all transwomen should be aborted.
Even if it's just her, it doesn't make it okay. People like her actually would be aborted and have been the target of eugenicists in the past. If she had said something like that about anyone at all, people wouldn't have shut up posting caps of it for the next year. If it's really nothing to do with her being trans then you can be respectful of her pronouns. It's not like she's a xie or an attack helicopter. And maybe try not telling her you want her dead if you want her to knock off what ever she's up to this week.
>If she had said something like that about anyone at all, people wouldn't have shut up posting caps of it for the next year
Such is the fate of the lolcow. Ireland's most well known one who's been at it for 10+ years, no less. Even her most prominent Facebook asspatters are ditching her in their droves as of the last few weeks and calling her a manipulative, blackmailing cunt.
Whatever about being a literal autist trainwreck of an individual who will never accomplish anything of note in their life; anyone who shows up to an A&E when there's nothing actually wrong with them and takes a selfie of themselves next to an unplugged machine just to get pity likes on Facebook should off themselves immediately.
To be honest your post is so cringey and edgy I find it hard to read it. What are you trying to prove exactly? I don't understand. Are you trying to take a take a stance against her saying and doing horrible things to people, or are you trying to take a stance for doing horrible things like telling people to kill themselves and making fun of their disability?
People seem to make up explanations for things that happen in her life and take them as fact. I haven't been following her obsessively like some people so I have no idea why she was in A&E but if you listen to some people it seems impossible that anything genuinely bad ever happens to her. Most trans people have a lot of issues because being trans is actually pretty fucked up, before you talk about autism. I never really see the "lolcow" crowd take this into account. I think they're all too aware of it and are taking advantage.
I'm going to out and say it, and that anyone I've seen with a problem with her on here is a hundred times more awful and toxic in almost every way. You're just probably better at hiding it outside of your containment areas. You call her a manipulative, blackmailing cunt as if you actually genuinely care about how she acts towards others, but then you tell someone to go kill themselves.
People do fucked up things when they're desperate, so I can excuse some of her bullshit. What's scary is when people act like they're emotionally invested in someone they actually don't know that much about since all the information they get is filtered through trolls. This isn't just her, either, and this is why I rarely if ever go to cons anymore. I don't want to get dragged into thread killing argument about someone I don't know well either, so let's drop the subject.
I literally have no idea what you're trying to say. I know this site is an image board, but I get the feeling you have the ability to verbally communicate in a coherent manner. Please use it.
I'm trying to verbally communicate to you the fact that you're new to and naive as fuck about her and the internet in general. She's been at this for 10+ years. I even remember her dropping into MSN conversations while I was a teenager and being creepy.
>before you talk about autism. I never really see the "lolcow" crowd take this into account. I think they're all too aware of it and are taking advantage.
Maybe if you'd read her lolcow thread you'd realise there have actually been many self-confessed trans/autistic people who think Potsy is a fucking joke for using the trans/autistic stuff as a crutch and excuse for absolutely everything that goes wrong in her life.
Feel free to pat her arse, feel sorry for her and excuse her bullshit all you want, I don't care. I just feel sorry for the children. Look at the child's face. Ye wouldn't even subject an animal to that sort of abuse
There was a time when shit people did 10+ years ago was confined to the annals of history. When you're dealing with people who have to work very hard to act "normal" around people you basically push them into a position they can't get out of because everyone judges them the same no matter how they change.
Nobody gives a shit that you were a creepy teenager because you weren't as big a target. Trans people are.
>Maybe if you'd read her lolcow thread you'd realise there have actually been many self-confessed trans/autistic people who think Potsy is a fucking joke for using the trans/autistic stuff as a crutch and excuse for absolutely everything that goes wrong in her life.
I read one of the dozens times it was posted here before thread deletion. From what I could see there were a small number of people who are hardly representative given they're specifically on a site with an extremely shady premise. We all know #notyourshield is a thing, it doesn't justify GG. The whole thing of there being this model for people like her to follow who acts in a certain way that cis & het people approve of is a really creepy brand of social engineering.
The average trans person would have nothing to do with the sort of shit that gets posted on sites like that, or threads like this, so you can't use them to single her out.
>Feel free to pat her arse, feel sorry for her and excuse her bullshit all you want, I don't care. I just feel sorry for the children. Look at the child's face. Ye wouldn't even subject an animal to that sort of abuse
You don't know her, you don't know the woman and (I hope) you don't know the child. I doubt she'd intentionally post a photo like that unless it was for humour value(or what she sees as humour value). You don't know anything about their relationship to her, past assumptions and theories cooked up by people who tell mentally unstable transwomen to kill themselves as a past-time.
Diff anon: I agree with you fundimentally, misgendering and implying she should kill herself are pointless, tryhard gestures. But regardless of that Leighanna is someone who needs genuine help with her issues, and conflating every good activist in Ireland with GGs/MRAs/What have you just because they think, occasionally she should be held responsible for her actions is doing so much damage for her in the long run.
It was my first con but I wouldn't' mind seeing her 3 more times tea bee haytch
>tfw you're a leech on society and your gyppo friends are being sent to prison
Bad feel lads
Oddly enough, that headscarf is cultural appropriation.
but that's none of my business.
I thought the entire point of people who're born biologically male who feel they're female (or vice versa) was to try and completely pass for the opposite gender instead of parading the fact that they're trans around everywhere? I thought it'd defeat the point
It was ok, not great.
Had a great guest and some good events but so many gaps in the timetable that everyone was a bit bored on many occassions.
Also the trade hall was disappointing with all the knockoffs everywhere.
Irish cons have a terrible bootleg problem in trade halls and low-quality art in artist alleys. There really need to be higher standards. While there are great artists at cons, there are still the people like ABeadsC and others who are directly copying sprites and making "pixel art". There's a ton of stuff that looks traced or just downright awful, too.
The panels were generally pretty good, Tantalus and Man of Action were funny, Guest panels were very good too.
Met up with friends, had a lot of fun, spent far too much money, all in all a good weekend.
>it's no longer amusing
