Damn FJ and surface post being the only cheap option. I've got three packages between 2 weeks and 5 weeks old and I just hope they get here before AWA in case there's a tea party event.

Can someone tell me the sauce of the downfall of acrylic keychains from being sold in AA? I recalled tidbits from last year but this past year my local AA called a meeting of artist one night during closing hours (a rarity to see the head AA ppl themselves) to bring up updates and even brought up the acrylic keychains as a mass produced item that is prohibited unless you sell them on the more pricier vendor table among other things.
Get over yourself. You're making money off of someone else's IP. Be thankful that they let you make money off of it for as long as they did. It sucks, but at least we still have prints. Make generic cute charms that aren't associated with anything if you still want to sell charms. That's what I ended up doing (food, cute horoscope girls/boys, cute animals, etc.). People still buy that stuff.
What are you pet peeves in lolita? Post what nitpicks really ruffle your petticoats and get your bloomers in a bunch.
Personally, I absolutely hate seeing girls not tie their waist bows correctly and simply tie it like it's a shoe lace.
When I see a badly tied bow, I want to go up to them and retie it. Without even saying anything.
Fashion changes but that doesn't mean you have to change with it.
For me something that peeves me off are the people who pretty much treat lolita like a costume, and I don't mean cosplay lolitas, I mean like those that only wear lolita to special events. I know that I've been guilty of this but I'm trying to expand my wardrobe because I want to treat it for what it is, a fashion, and wear it at least weekly. Lolita is more of like a "who can be the most OTT" thing now and it kinda bothers me because it's pretty much losing its original purpose.

Hey silly gull, we're all chilling on Discord and metting up and stuff. Why not join us at https://discord.gg/RgaEYeK and say hi!
Also as you've probably already noticed, I did a little survey in the previous thread. Posted here are the average scores for each con, work on the promised infograph will start tonight and the global results can be found over at http://churi.nl/survey/index.php/statistics_user/action/surveyid/777492/language/en
As for me replying to your reactions, >>9553151 >>9553153 and >>9553158 of the previous thread is where you can find those. Happy posting gulls!

What's the best convention you've ever gone to and why? And what was the worst? Post your recommendations and opinions here!
Has anyone here seen anything about this Ishoku Hada fad in Japan? Thoughts?
In light of >>9549318 I'm wondering what are some really good or interesting panels out there.
The more I go to cons the more I see the same panel subjects repeated over and over again. What are the fresh ideas or panel types that have managed to stand out.
I love spooky story panels, as long as it's not the same old repeated stuff. Last creepypasta panel I went to consisted of Shrek memes and Yugioh Abridged references.
Also panels consisting of actual discussion. I went to a Fatal Frame panel (a fave game of mine) and actually learned stuff about the game I didn't know, and was introduced to a youtuber who translates Japanese horror games.
No matter what the subject is, as long as the panelists aren't spazzing around, it's usually good enough for me. That's pretty hard to come across in AZ sadly.
Old one (>>9536874) is saging.
/cgl/ Idol Spreadsheet:
We left off last thread with the release of Let's Go, Baby! and the vocal and dance showreels from Minty Pop Girls, whose debut single is going to be released in a few days. Both cringe and quality content welcome here, as are discussions about idols and odottemita in general.
What do you guys think of this group? I've seen them mentioned, but nobody's said too much. I think they have potential, but need to work on being more in sync. Their Sunny Day Song preview is really messy.
Obligatory terrible t-shirt design for terrible group. https://www.instagram.com/p/BWKzsUghcXB/?taken-by=vestiilya
will be held July 14-16, 2017 at the Raleigh Convention Center. Supercon is a 3 day festival for fans of pop culture, superheroes, science fiction, fantasy, anime, cartoons, and video games. The event features celebrity guests, comic book creators, voice actors, entertainers, industry guests, cosplayers, exhibitors, artists, and writers. Tickets grant access to the exhibition hall, panels, Q&A’s, films & shorts, costume & cosplay contests, parties, anime viewing, workshops, video gaming, board gaming, and more!
I'm going Saturday but I'm a little leery honestly. It feels like a celebrity cash grab, half the "cosplay guests" are just local mediocre cosplayers, and they were so aggressively pushy about their adervertising at Animazement that it felt a little desperate. I'm going to give them a shot, but I wouldn't be shocked if this was a one year thing for Raleigh like Wizard World.
Have a 3 day pass, but I have D&D so will probably skip Sunday. I honestly impulse bought a pass after AZ and I kind of forgot about it. I'm not cosplaying for sure.
This more or less. There are only a couple of guests I care about (Burton, Spiner), but the cost for a picture/autograph is way too high.
What events are you guys going to?
What are some of the worst or most cringe panels you've seen at cons?
To start off I'd like to mention how in the current year of 2017 Saboten Con is STILL accepting Black Butler panels. They really have no filter or quality assurance and just let in everyone's submissions, don't they?
[email protected] panel where the actual panelists had to cancel and gave it to their friend to run. This dude had no idea what [email protected] was and was just reading off of a slideshow the whole time, running it solo.
The worst is one I ran this past spring but I'm trying to wipe that from my memory.
Since DCC is finally over, did any cgls go there? Opinions? comments?
Been going to all of them except 2014, and this was the most shit year yet. Poorly organized attempt at security, ass-backwards organization of convention center, prop bans... just a big ol' shit show.
Old thread ded
Are there any docs that have all the ONS scans in them? Should we start one?
TL;DR: is the con scene a lot less forgiving for older cosplayers or even older con-goers in general?
I'm in my early 30s and used to be in the con scene in my early and mid 20s but eventually left due to drama and stupid people. But I've begun to miss cons of all things. I'm wondering if 1) it gets better in terms of maturity for older cosplayers interacting with one another, 2) if the stereotype is still true that there's still so few older con-goers around it's not worth bothering to hit up cons that aren't essentially giant pop-culture advertisement expos, and 3) depending on two's answer if I'm a huge faggot for still having an interest in the con scene or cosplay in general in my seeming old age and it's time to move on.
Yeah, I know every answer and experience is subjective, but I'm wondering if a consensus can be had. For the sake of clarity and responses, I'm a guy and always gravitated to simpler costumes (since I can't make worth shit) and never was much for anime or eastern stuff, it's preferably comics and to a much lesser extent gaming as my nerd interest of choice. Thanks in advance for replies.
To me, it looks like the older you get, the better things get because you just stop rightly giving a fuck. If you're older and good, people kind of see you as a bit of a legend and you'll get a fair amount of attention since DESU most older people tend to not cosplay.
Also western media is going strong at conventions, you have nothing to worry about in that regard. It's kinda expected for older folks to be more into comics.
Wait are you complaining comic cons are too young? Comic & Sci-fi cons have always had an older demographic. Anime cons skew younger.
I'm expecting a surge of 30-40 somethings as nerds who went to cons in their teens start producing offspring and they want to take their kids somewhere fun for a weekend.
OP here. Thanks much for the replies!
Giving no fucks is definitely part of why I'm getting ready to give it another whirl, but to me there's still the feel there's just not many older people in general at cons and it'd be nice to meet people with similar interests again, but are my age - meeting people at cons is part of the fun, eh.
Most cons I went to in my original days were anime cons due to being the ones that I was taken to by friends. I did go to Magfest and I'll concede to you it definitely skewed to an older demographic. So if comic cons tend to have older people that's definitely a plus.
Greetings from /diy/
this is my first visit to /cgl/ and to be honest i;m a lot more impressed than i thought i would be.
i'm looking for opinions on a project i;m currently working on, 3d manouvering gear from Attack on Titan(pic related)
what i'd like to know is
A: how does the project look so far? its straight off the printer and only push fitted together
B : are 3d prints deemed acceptable or are they vewed as a form of cheating?
Looking good! I can't see the close-up but I hope you're gonna do a finish across the printed exterior.
As for cheating, not really, since a lot of people make the models themselves and it takes effort to print/cleanup into the final product.
Yes, I'd consider 3d printing cheating on the same level as buying things. It's not really craftsmanship, it's having something built for you because you want the end result more than the experience of building it.
