I went to my first con earlier in the year (Dublin Comic Con) and was really thrilled to see so many cosplayers in person for the first time. Lots of Inside Out, SnK and Witcher this year, on top of the usual anime and vidya staples.
But the one type of cosplay I saw the most of were just random, military looking dudes. At least 50, maybe even 100 the day I was there, and none of them were recognisable. It was just a lot of kids with tactical vests, shooting gloves, glasses, maybe a hat, and airsoft rifles. I hadn't any idea what series they were from if any, though I'm gonna just guess and say they were Call of Duty inspired. Now, Ireland isn't as militarized as America, and our own army looks nothing like the typical PMC, but in the back of my mind it was kinda concerning to see what would otherwise be mistaken for a real one.

So my question is; what do you make of this trend? Especially in America.
Does it weird you out? Do cons over there allow it? Maybe this is a more political question, but don't you think it's fucked up that so many kids are dressing as nondescript mercenaries when the activity of mercenary/private security companies are on the rise?

in america, they tend to be called out for stolen valor, personally i feel like its kinda out of place, but i really cant give a shit about it so long as they dont bother me
>>
>>8758037
That's not true. It's only "stolen valley" when they try to say they are actually in whatever unit. If that was true airsofters at cons would get shut down real quick.

America here. California to be specific, so one of the two states most afraid of guns (NY being the other, well, NYC is at least). I have a negative number of fucks to give. No, it doesn't weird me out. Yes, it's allowed. Again, no fucks given. Best advice: get over it.

ITT: worst shit you've had to deal with from a "fan" or yours, or a story that happened to someone you know

>be fairly popular lolita on the internet, but never went to meets
>decide to check out local comm
>first meet I go to is massive and a few girls recognize me
>one girl freaks the fuck out over me, calling me senpai, saying how I'm her Lolita idol
>flattered at first, but girl ends up not leaving my side the whole meet
>sends me a friend request on Facebook and makes a comment on the community page about how amazing it was to see me
>accept her friend request and see she also made a status about it on her own page, including a link to a YouTube video I did
>freaked out, but dismiss it as an overzealous and awkward girl who probably has no social skills
>fast forward a few months
>girl has been really annoying and won't leave me alone at meets, but nothing yet to suggest she wants to wear my skin
>notice her phone background for the first time
>its a picture of me
>one of my private FB ones, not the nice ones I post publicly on Intagram or Tumblr
>ask why she has that
>she says it's because its such a pretty picture
>tell her that her fangirlism has crossed the line into creeping me out
>she freaks out and says how there's nothing that great about me, anyway
>just got an essay long Facebook message from her about what great of friends we could have been, including how she fantasized about us going to Tokyo together, and how we could have worn each other's lolita

You sound like a bitch. You wanted e-fame, you got e-fame. Deal with it or get out. You don't seem like you deserve many fans.
>>
>>8758496
And you sound petty. Being popular doesn't mean you "deserve" stalkers, or that you aren't allowed to untangle yourself from someone who's creeping you out. OP doesn't sound bitchy at all.
>>
>>8758496

Excuse me? I find it creepy, too. Also, find this hilarious. I would try to avoid her much as possible.

>Roll Call for Baby/Aatp packs

Are you planning on grabbing one, SS or trying yourself, Japan or USA site?

Also
> what are the chances of getting those sweet disney collabs in the variety packs?

>How much pastel vomit are we looking at for AP's packs?

>does anybody pick up the indie brand etsy accessory packs?

I've picked up a few from kitty wood designs and have always been pleased

I kind of know the ordering process for the baby packs, fill the former out like normal and wait on a confirmation email and paypal invoice.

But I can't for the life of me figure out what time they'll be launching. I know, I'm a moron but I'm horrible with time zones and shit.. so could somebody please tell me what time to be on the site to buy them for USA central time?
Also can I buy two packs on the same order? (Verity and Baby)
>>
>>8757015
BTSSB's happy packs go on sale at 5pm Japan time; google "time zone converter" (and save the link for future use), it'll help you figure it out.
>>
I don't think I'll get a AP Lucky Pack, but still I'm really curious what it will be like. I hope they are announcing it soon.
When did they annouce it last year?

Looks cute and like it'd be fun. But I'd rather spend my time making real cosplays rather than playing a game about it.

It's worth it just for the all too familiar drama

Was expecting it to be $5 or less, seems like a lot for just a cosplay sim

>All J-fash styles (lolita, mori, otome, gyaru, deco, etc.) are welcome!
>Cosplay is discouraged, because then it's basically fanart of your character.
>Please provide your best photos.
>Artists: it's not a bad idea to just sign your work
>Selfposters: When giving credit, it's a good idea to refer to the art as a freebie or commission, NOT fanart.
>Helpful critique is acceptable, insults and taunts are not.

The great thing about cosplay is that it often appeals to fetishes of some kind or another, but you can also just appreciate the cosplay if you're not into whatever fetish it appeals to. Pretty much anything you dress up as, someone somewhere wants to screw it. Why bother with caring?

Decided to go to Holiday Matsuri instead. Better guests and an AP tea party.

Let's see some examples of glasses in lolita, other jfash, or cosplay, for those of us who would rather get some cute frames than stick death plastic into our eyes
