why do generic nerds always like the same stuff? for instance zelda, doctor who, harry pottter, marvel etc?

Because they are what has been advertised the most and are most available to a wider audience.

Popularity leads to more production and availability to a wider audience. I feel like that's sort of obvious.

Anon please stop trying to be a special snowflake by hating on people who enjoy things that have been around longer than you've been alive. Not everyone can be interested in your super unique animes and franchises. Let nerds be nerds in whatever fandom theyve chosen.

Me and a couple of friends were thinking of doing a cosplay as these characters.
Wondering if /k/ could tell us exactly what equipment they are using, and if any parts are invented if there are any similar pieces out there.

idk where you live but most anime cons have a generally friendly atmosphere and you'll see kids from around 13 up roaming unsupervised without being harassed, and if they're with a chaperone then it's fine because most creeps will avoid you and the ones that don't can just be told to fuck off

What are you working on?

Last thread left off with this gem from a group inspired by Stellure.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-deAPi_xhc

>I am not the best singer, nor the best song writer, and composing music is not a thing I can do.
>Thank you for watching, and tolerating this 'music'.
I hate groups with this "I know it's bad but it's the best I could do" mentality, but I love the hilariously bad content they put out.
>>
Also inspired by Stellure. They're cute but they haven't released any content yet. They're, of course, still asking fans whether they should do a live stream or a Q and A...of course, since those are easier than working on your debut song. I hate idols who ride on fluff content before they've even done anything.
>>
Can someone explain to me the whole net idol/odottemita thing? Do these groups have actual legitimate fans? They just look so crings and full of ugly and sometimes fat girls that somehow think they are kawaii ugu hot shit.

Do people actually care to watch them sing/dance?

So I've been going to cons up and down CA for a while now and I'm noticing how differently the attendees behave.

When I got to a comic book based con (even something as small as Big Wow and a larger extent Wondercon) and I stand in line I could hear the cheater of those around me. What I hear usually involves what panels people are going to, which guests they're going to meet, what they've bought or how long they waited in line. It feels like the people at these cons are there for the fandom and indulging in it.

This contrasts with an anime con where the chit chat in lines revolves around how everyone's cosplay looks, how late a party ran, how much drinking a person has already done/plan to do. At anime cons the fandom plays second fiddle and people are more interested in improving their own status.

Maybe I'm wrong and this is all confirmation bias but the more I attend these cons the more I see the differences in mentality.

Well take this with a grain of salt because im bot sure of it but i think it has most to do with the amount of anime there is compared to the amount of comics or cartoons and whatnot, for cartoons specifically theres a small number of good shows with decent sized fandoms and for comics you have mostly only the big 2 marvel and dc compare that to the sea anime both good and shit, theres just too much ground to cover

In my opinion i think its just the crowd anime cons have.

Really hope someone chimes in because im not too sure about this myself
>>
I guess anime fans here are more social oriented when they're at conventions. They do like anime or they wouldn't be there in the first place and a lot of them do see the guests, go for autographs, concerts, etc and post online regularly about anime. Fanime for sure is party/social only because what else are you going to see while you're there? AX, in comparison, is throwing a ton of things to see at you

I actually think I don't have enough time in the day for all the stuff I want to see for AX

This, what ive seen is that anime congoers are pretty socialble and will often let you join their group if your cool

Last con I was at there were 30 shitty casual Victor and drunk Yuris for every 1 of the actual skating outfits. Post good costumes for inspiration and bad ones for the lulz/so we can learn from them.

How do you feel about your local comm? Is polite but honest concrit given to itas at meets or is it considered bullying to tell someone their cosplay wig doesn't work with lolita? How does your comm deal with itas and newbies, and how do you wish it would?

Oldfag here

my issue with the lolita community is the twofaced-ness of it.
some comms could have some party city wigged girl show up, and shower her in compliments, tell her she's kawaii, loved her dress, then make secrets about her being ita the same night..

the fake-bubbly "your so lovely" to peoples faces freaked me out when i first joined. Honestly, when I first started myself, if someone told me concrit (not just criticism) (nicely) to my face rather than making secrets about me, I would have improved a lot quicker. But the fact everyone was fake nice to my face made me feel like the lolitas online were just "mean bullies!1!" and I can definitely see that in a lot of other itas. however, feel free to roast any bitch who laughs and ignores your nice and positive concrit, that's fair game.

of course, not every comm is the same, some comms are full of sandy chans, other comms full of itas.. so this just approaches this fake-nice thing I've been seeing in a few comms.
>>
>>9529891
I get this.

I personally think that public meets/meets for the whole comm aren't ever the place for unsolicited concrit. But I wish people wouldn't be so shitty about private meets. I know my comm would flip shit if I had a private birthday party for me and only invited my lolita friends, who all happen to be above average dressers.
>>
My newest comm is small and I'm fairly glad for it. There's less chance for drama. We're pretty close knit and usually avoid sensitive topics just because that's more comfortable for all of us, no matter our opinions.

My comm may not be the biggest or own the most burando but we aren't catty towards each other and I'm happy about that. The last comm I was in was full of burando bitches or ita bitches with some nice girls in brand and taobao strewn in between.

But I feel like over all, the general lolita culture has become very petty. Also, the refusal to let go of things and realize that people make mistakes is kind of horrifying. No lolita has gone their entire life without fucking up. It just happens.
