What am I to expect? Anime Blues Con, if any of you live in the area. I've heard they can be pretty fun, but I have a mild anxiety disorder and dysthymia, so I don't know if the socialization will be therapeutic or horrifying.

Unless you're cosplaying, or a hot girl who looks lonely, nobody is going to bother you. If you are browsing the dealer's hall or artist all they may ask you if you need help.

Don't worry, you'll be in good company. I'm going to ABC, too, Anon. I live about 15 minutes away from the convention center. What tracks are you thinking you'll attend?

What was cosplay like in 1998?
30 posts and 4 images submitted.
>>
My first year was '01 but my older friends tell me the late '90s were pretty similar.

Pretty much everybody had shitty costumes, shitty wigs, and didn't wear makeup. An impressive costume meant a giant prop or a "good" Goku wig. Hardly anybody took pictures and even fewer posted them online, and nobody had a DSLR or did actual photoshoots.

Cosplay was more... I don't want to call it "roleplay," but it was about getting to dress up as your favorite character and walk around for a day, and probably meet other fans of your favorite series. There was almost no such thing as a "popular" cosplayer and nobody was really trying to be one.

I feel like it was a lot easier to meet and interact with people, even at big cons like AX. People weren't paranoid like they are now.

Masquerades were a bigger deal and pretty much everybody at the con went to them.

People did more joke and gimmick costumes, and it was about getting reactions in person, not in pictures online.

Really? Cons encourage openness so much these days, it's a good thing I'm just saying since I taught older cons were more lurkish
>>
>>9411650
I dunno, maybe it's just me but I found it much easier in the old days. Nowadays there's so much worry about saying or doing the wrong thing and ending up as greentext in some /cgl/ creeper thread.

Cosplayers tend to be busy with photoshoots and stuff nonstop too, and everybody is constantly burned out from the endless interaction with "fans," photographers, actual creeps, etc. at big cons now. In the old days I could walk up to somebody wearing a costume from a show I liked and it'd turn into an hour long conversation, now it's a minute of awkward banter on both sides and then it gets interrupted by Gamefan23.

WonderCon is this week, anyone going? Any cosplay plans or events? Is it worth it?

I'm going! Feeling the con crunch right now as I finish one more cosplay. I'll be going as Amaterasu from Wick+Div and Belle from the original animated Beauty and the Beast. So glad its back in Anaheim.

I'd say its worth it if you're into western comics and pop culture, or if you're a Disney fan. There's always plenty of cape cosplay and Disney cosplay.

I'm going. Cosplays aren't even close go being done. God help me.

Same anon. I'm driving down from Nor Cal so I have to make sure everything is done before I go to work on Thursday. We'll make it!

Considering DCC will be taking place this weekend I'm reposting the schedule and I've also made the mandatory "Are you going to Dutch Comic con this weekend?" Strawpoll. http://www.strawpoll.me/12586713

I personally wont be attending DCC, but to those going all I can say is have fun and if you want to meet up this is the time to arrange something. /blog

Why does the Dutch lolita comm have private meetups, then invite practically anyone? Why don't they just share the meet with the group?
>>
>>9403478
People don't really like many strangers showing up, but still want to include a lot people. If you put on the main group you might get 10 people you don't know and suddenly you are responsible for them.

Also, any idea on how to make a big Gengar Costume?

No plans to at the moment.

While fun to wear, it's a lot of effort and takes up space. Plus I wasn't good at keeping things cool while wearing them, besides taking breaks and staying hydrated, and honestly I always forget to build a proper ventilation in those sort of costumes.

>big Gengar Costume
Did you look up how Adam made the Totoro cosplay on Tested? It's worth checking out, it kinda gave me some insight to alternative methods where I don't have access to giant vacuum/heat molds.

>>9397281
Yes, I did, but I'm sure I'm missing some details.
I'm not sure on how to manipulate the arms, the only thing I know, It's that it's going to be a puppet or something, like those mechanic arms, but just with the elbow

How the fuck would you go about creating a piranha plant costume as someone with no experience in making this sort of shit?
I was thinking about creating the pipe out of cardboard and wearing a green shirt with paper leaves on the arms. For the head I'd make a paper maché form stuck to a sphere of chicken wire, painted to look sort of ok.
teeth are going to be white paper triangles.
Thoughts?
Should I make the lips 3d are just paint them on?

If you aren't super tall, you could probably just be inside the pipe and have the plant itself just sitting on top.

What kind of stone should I use? Is there something prettier, shinier, and more transclucent than ruby?

if girls like these sell photosets/have a patreon, do you think i have a good chance or being successful with my own? pretty good body, average face but cosplay makeup makes me cute. i have very mixed emotions about gals like these (mostly people like momokun because theyre super fake) but i thought it would be a good way to fund my cosplay hobby by cosplaying.
im not sure why, but it seems like neckbeards will pay a lot of money to see a decent girl dressed up as their favorite character, just posing for a few shots in a bikini.
if these ugly whales can do it, surely i can? i have a job but with school i don't have that much money left, and i'd like to have extra money for more cosplay/materials/cons but i can't do that since i prioritize necessities first.

would you, or do you gulls have a patreon/do some sort of modelling to help fund your hobby? genuinely curious.

The whales appeal to whale chasers (yes they do exist). You probably need to appeal to a niche unless you are turbo pretty. I would need to know what you look like to advise further.
>>
Just looked at the link, it's mostly tacky self proclaimed NSFW content. I'm convinced a massive chunk of people that buy into these patreons have some contact with the cosplayer and hopes to be noticed by them for contributing. Anyone can start a patreon, however with what I notice with my lesser known cos friends, their only patreon contributors come directly from their personal friends and a few weird neckbeards that comment on everything they post.
>>
I'm gonna be really honest with you op everyone in their mind has a patreon now and literally half the girls aren't that great and some even unattractive. Doesn't matter if you have the following to back it but if you are less than a few thousand followers I'd say you won't get any money from anyone and you Def will have to show skin. Some girls I've seen who have 14k or more instagram followers make 40 bucks a month for basically lewd lingerie. 40 bucks ain't worth the lingerie u less you getting cheap shit off ebay.

Discuss "normie" models and/or celebrities you would like to see in a certain style. I'm obsessed with the dolly-faced models of the early to mid 2000s, like Vlada Roslyakova or Gemma Ward and would have LOVED to see them model for AP or Baby.

I want to see Ariana Grande in fairy kei. She is so small and cute, I feel like she'd look great in it.
>>
I have a small obsession with Elle Fanning, IMO she'd look super cute in larme or maybe old school lolita.
