Help me out here guys. How exactly does plot work in a larp? I've never been to one, but I've been reading up on them and I'm baffled by how plot works.

So everyone beings in the village/room/whatever, getting into character and socialising. Then goblins attack/an NPC dies/event happens. So what happens after the event is resolved? Do people just go back mingling in-character until the next event? Are you encouraged to go questing from hints given in the event?

I'm just really struggling to get my head around it.
>>
>>9434035
See it less as a linear line and more as a lot of small thing happening at the same time. The big plot line might start and end at that very point with the NPCs being involved. But at the same time a hundred players all have their own little stories being told, their own little inter-player or inter-NPC arc.
>>
>>9434035
Depends how big or small a larp group is. If the group is small it may feel a tiny more linear because you can't branch out into groups without being too small a party and getting your ass kicked or doing 1on1 stuff that gets boring quick.

Usually there are areas pre set up for plot with either an npc at the entrance of it/guiding you to it or monster/events roaming around. The point is to make sure everyone is doing something different and or can choose what their character would do.

I work at a larp camp for kids and teens and we have to have at least 4 different events set up and usually 1 roaming event. After a meal, the events change. Most larps do it that way. Because I work at a kids camp, we do the straight forward npc shows up, talk about or point out a plot important event, and each group decides which ones they will tackle separately first.

The adult larps I've gone to have never been so clunky as to just have people wait around and then "omg! npc is here to deliver the plot! we must follow them." Usually we have a big group battle between players to asses new larpers, warm up, and allow experienced people to do other shit like talk to non-active npcs. During those fights is usually when main plot stuff gets dropped on us and only to those looking for/paying attention to it. Being subtle about plot dropping encourages player interaction and makes the plot flow easily. Allows logistics to prep while the players are figuring shit out.

does kalahari have rooms on hold that they will release like most resorts do for these cons?
>>
>>9433254
No. You are pretty SOL if you didn't book.
>>
I've been going since the first year at the Kalahari, but this will be the first time I'm not going. Too crowded to really have much fun anymore, so I'm opting for East instead.

>>9433254
Nope. Alternatively, if you really wanted to risk it and have a second option, you could hold off until the last half of May and keep calling for any cancellations. Since Colossal's one of those "mad rush to book" cons which means its prone to last minute cancellations. You can also use the "Colossalcon room & ride sharing group" on facebook because sometimes people who cancel will post there looking to transfer their room if they can't make it.

Old one with the arsenic OP photo seems to have vanished?
Anyways, my dermatologist said my extremely stubborn acne is being caused by friction due to me side sleeping (even when I wash my sheets frequently I break out everywhere my face touches the pillow, mostly my cheeks), so I bought a special anti-aging pillow (Nurse Jamie Beauty Bear) to keep my cheek from touching anything. We'll see how well it works, have any gulls had a similar problem?

>>9410256
I haven't had that problem, but I reckon a silk or satin pillowcase would create less friction than a cotton one (and doesn't leave any wrinkles on the face, either). I would also recommend wrapping your hair or wearing a sleeping bonnet so you don't transfer product/oil onto your pillowcase.

Hey how do you guys deal with strech marks I hydrate my skin regularly and im not overweight but since I was 14 I had strech marks in my waist zone, I dont know what to do im currently trying sugar exfoliatives but they dont seem to work help please
>>
>>9410818
Raw shea butter is good, too. Exfoliate, then slather that shit on. If you can get the bright yellow stuff straight from the nut, that's best. It's greasy as hell, but it really worked for my stretch marks, you just have to be consistent.

Old Thread autosaged >>9232909

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

Anyone know where I can find shoes suitable for EGA in a UK size 12? I've looked around but most things on western goth sites are ugly/bulky and Asian sites don't usually carry my size. I know Antaina does custom sizing but they don't seem to have anymen's models.

This is something I've been wondering for a while: why are some labels considered "brand" and some aren't? Like, it's agreed upon that BTSSB, Angelic Pretty, Moi-meme-Moitie, etc. are "brand", but why and how did they get that status? Why those shops in particular? Could a label that's considered "off-brand" eventually evolve into being actual brand?

Not trying to start shit, just genuinely curious.

Doubtful, it's like asking why there are different degrees of handbags. Apt. 9 has nice stuff, but it isn't on the same level as Tiffany Co. It's a combo of a higher quality and the 'brands' being the first ones on the scene, or made famous by celebs. So companies like AP, MM, and BTSSSB were the pioneers of the fashion and are the largest brands with the most money selling the high quality dresses for $$$ (quality as of late is questionable with some stuff but w/e). Off brand or indie brands probably won't escalate to brand status just because they weren't really big at the beginning with a huge name for themselves, if that makes sense.
>>
>>9454449
Another factor that kind of plays into that high status is how recognizable the product is. AP dresses are super easy to spot from their prints to the kinds of lace they use, just like MM is very easy to identify with its unique look. I'm sure there are indie brands that are way higher quality than burando, but they don't have that same status attached to them.

Royal Princess Alice kinda of emerged as a brand and a lot of people consider Haenuli to be a brand

That creepy ass motherfucker? How many cons he banned from again?
>>
He's shit. Did anyone else see his hilarious meltdown about how cosplayers better wear makeup because he's too lazy to edit out blemishes even though he charges out the ass for his bad photography?

He can't even shoot in good lighting, all his portraits have terrible shadows that are super unflattering on the subject's face and at weird angles

Not to mention a creep

I got contacted by him to shoot at AM. I'm glad I didn't go through with shooting with him considering this.

What exactly did he do to get banned?

What are some things that you see in alot of cosplays that just piss you off

I'll start, cosplayers who have a good outfit but their makeup is shit or nonexistent. Seeing a good or amazing costume and then no effort put into makeup just makes me sad.

Sup gulls, with con season coming up to us in full force I started to wonder what it is that makes a good convention. What separates the good, the bad, and the cringe. Since everyone has different views into what they think makes a good con I'll try to present this question in a more sensible fashion. But feel free to just comment whatever it is that you think adds on to the experience.

>How many conventions have you attended?
I lost count, when I first started I tried to attend as many as I possibly could. From there on I learned what quality was and I saw a lot of those conventions die off. Now I only attend 1 or 2 a year.

>What aspect do you look forward to the most?
I personally love getting to see the friends I rarely get to see. And also getting to stay in a hotel room with a bunch of friends getting turnt is the best.

>How much are you willing to spend on a weekend ticket?
The most I would ever pay for a weekend pass is around 60, if I TRULY loved the convention I would think of paying 70.

>Does a cute waifu mascot make you more willing to go? Or do you just go because it's something to do in the area?
Hell yes it does, moreso if they put her as badge art.

>Do you prefer a bigger venue or smaller?
From my experience bigger cons have a lot more problems. They end up turning into sell outs and try and bring up their ticket prices to crazy amounts just because they know people will buy them.

> Do you attend panels? What types?
I think Q&A panels are really poorly organized if they are just straight Q&A. If there's no other content I've seen panels turn into the host just browsing the internet and playing videos that have no relation.(though on one occasion I learned which VA's voiced Hentai at one point in their careers) I wouldn't say I have a specific favorite type though.

>What makes a bad Con a bad Con?
This one is really vague. Bad experiences, disgusting people, expensive food, the hotel, all those things can make an experience bad.
7 posts and 1 images submitted.

>How many conventions have you attended?
6 a year for the past four years or so. Before that I only went to 3 a year, since around 2002.

>What aspect do you look forward to the most?
Meeting up with friends, meeting new people, cosplaying, and generally having a great time.

>How much are you willing to spend on a weekend ticket?
It highly depends on the con. If the con provides great programming or something special I'll pay more (my favorite con costs $85-90ish). Small cons or poorly run cons I won't want to pay more than 55.

>Does a cute waifu mascot make you more willing to go? Or do you just go because it's something to do in the area?
No. I can't imagine paying money for a con just because it has a nice image banner.

>Do you prefer a bigger venue or smaller?
Medium. The best cons are ones that are successful enough to attract congoers from across state lines, but not so full that they've filled their venue to capacity. I have a great time going to small local cons, but I'd never foot the financial cost to go to one that's far away.

> Do you attend panels? What types?
Panels at anime cons are lacking and I usually don't go to them. At big or gen cons like Dragoncon I attend costuming panels, workshops, and stuff with interesting guests.

>What makes a bad Con a bad Con?
An exec team who's unwilling to make changes or improve because "people will come anyway". A lot of the big east cost cons suffer from this and it's usually obvious when a con's problems are out of staff's control vs stemming from poor management.
>>
>How many conventions have you attended?
Not sure of the exact number, I'm somewhere over 100 by now. Averaging somewhere around 7-8 cons a year for 15 years.

>What aspect do you look forward to the most?
Getting to see friends, and any events that I might be looking forward to, if applicable. Dressing up, meeting new people, running panels or events if I'm doing them and visiting the artist alley and dealer room.

>How much are you willing to spend on a weekend ticket?
In the last several years I haven't spent much and rarely buy. I end up staffing or I end up getting a badge for helping out with convention promotion tables. Usually about 50-60 is the average that I'm willing to pay. If it's more than that, I see what I can do to reduce the costs. I try to pre-reg if it's an expensive con. I'll only pay more if the event is really worth going to, but usually by now, you've seen one, you've seen em all when it comes to anime cons.

>Does a cute waifu mascot make you more willing to go?
Nah. But I do appreciate good art and a good website design. It will make the event seem more professionally run. Normally I go because it's either local, or something that I've developed a long tradition of attending.

>Do you prefer a bigger venue or smaller?
I like my tiny cons for the closeness and homey feel. I like my big cons for all the cool shit you can buy and all the people you can meet up with.

> Do you attend panels?
I try to. J-fashion panels, art, and other hobbies I'm into. Don't go into many fandom panels unless it's something I feel real passionate about and know the person running it.

>What makes a bad Con a bad Con?
Don't know anybody. I'm the oldest person there. Nothing in the dealers room. Artists are crap or have nothing of interest that I want to buy but good art. Panels are all meh. Something bad happens that ruins the con. But honestly after 100 cons, I've never had a truly BAD con experience. Just a few that were really MEH for the above reasons.
>>
>>9455364
>What do you think makes a successful convention?
Friends.
