From the old thread:

"Most comments were against the patreon. Some claimed that Tabitha was providing goods in exchange for money but others argued that selfies or a short group gaming/chat session or whatever wasn't sufficient for amount she's asking for."

Does anyone have a link to this discussion? Was it on Tabby's page (and presumably deleted)?

I'm interested coz, for my sins, I became a Patreon on Tabby's page not long ago. When I saw what I got in return for my money, I posted a carefully-worded message on the page saying I wasn't happy with what Tabby currently had to offer and that her milestone goals were fucking ridiculous (but again, worded much more politely and constructively than that). I didn't rip into Tabby but I just suggested she should rethink her milestones and the content she was offering to Patreons, otherwise she'd never get near even the lowest of the milestones.

Needless to say, the comment was deleted within a few hours with no response provided. I doubt Tabby even saw it, I imagine one of her babysitter mods is managing the page for her.

She seriously needs to get a brain though. Andrew Dobell got a shitload of grief on here when he joined Patreon but at least his milestones are realistic.
>>
>>8735537
His milestones are BS too, though. He's treated it like Kickstarter, with one-time 'rewards' for what is actually a monthly subscription. The only Patreon-like goal he has is his biggest one, getting people to pay for him to own a photographic studio. Even that is a joke because the price he's set for it is much higher than it actually costs to set up and run a studio. I went back through his last year of work and if you count up the number of studio shoots he does and apply the average cost renting a studio for a session in London, you're only looking at about £2000 total across the whole year. And some of that was shoots he makes sound like jobs, so those costs would have been paid for by the client. He's asking for 3x per month what he actually spends in a year. Essentially his top goal is for Patreon subscribers to pay for his entire life, to the tune of £6500 a month.

In addition he treats his Patreon subscribers as customers, not backers, offering them the chance to give him more money by selling them polaroids and cheaply-made prints.

That's all on top of the fact his entire Patreon is sold on the premise that if you give him a few quid a month he'll show you Tabs' and KJ's nipples now and again.

Then you gotta consider that he's doing all of this as a secondary hobby to his actual wedding and teaching business, which he's already making a very full London income from. Everything he says about being poor and not being able to afford studio time is 100% a lie. He just doesn't want to mix his business with cosplay because he knows brides won't want him shooting them if they know he's also shooting little girls in sexed-up comic costumes.

One thing that can be said for Tabs is she at least is selling herself for herself, off her own back. Andrew is trying to create a whole yearly income from exploiting other people. Tabs is a clown with an inflated ego but there's honest intentions behind her methods. Andrew's just a lying bullshitter.

You can find it on the fb url /jennielikescheese. Pretty sure the post is public as I can see it.

All the cosplay togs think they are professional most dont even like comics or anime. They only take photos of cosplayers for the likes and to see some tits and ass.
>>
>>8735626
There's a couple who are actually professional. Andrew Dobell is one. Sonesh has done some pro work. Lucas has regular clients. Seb is/was a professional ever before he turned up in cosplay. Yes they're all part of the circle jerk but they are working professionals as well.
>>
sonesh has done pro work? I dont call taking photo shoots in a car park professional
>>
>>8735640
Ladies and gentlemen here is a list of what the cosplay professional togs have to offer
Andrew Lobell will try and get you to take pics in your underwear no matter how many times you say no
Lucas overcharges and may rape you
Sonesh - will drag you to a car park no promises you will return
>>
>/britfag/ - togs and camgirls general
>>
>>8735648
At this point there's not much else to do but bitch about that stuff and speculate about Kita. Dead time of year.

Anyone going to Minami?
>>
Does anyone actually buy the FnC calendars? I mean the guy is lovely but half the photos seem to be awful con hallway shots.
>>
>>8735642
He's done some basic corporate and actors portrait work.

>>8735646
Andrew does that likely because every girl he's shot has gone along with it and if you're a middle age balding man with a way to get pretty girls to get naked in your living room, wouldn't you do it? Apart from that he's a professional wedding photographer in the Surrey market and he teaches photography and photoshopping.

Lucas overcharges for his cosplay stuff but look up the rates he gives for his sports & fitness portraiture, he's actually dirt cheap relative to others. He never raped anybody, either. KJ got rightfully freaked out when he felt up her boob but the rape thing was something only /cgl/ invented and pushed.

Sonesh, see above. Also there's never been any reason to suspect him of doing or being anything creepy.

I'll throw in Seb I mentioned before as well, he's a professional in product and advertisement and I think he teaches, at least he used to.

Plus I'm pretty sure Andrew & Seb are even sponsored by a couple of photographic companies, Sonesh has like two other businesses and Lucas has started branching out into serious fashion.

Like okay they've all done some shitty stuff before and I have my issues with Andrew especially but to say there aren't professional togs in UK cosplay is plain inaccurate.
>>

>speculate about Kita
Info is going to go online on the 1st december, so it shouldn't be too long before regs go online.
It's definitely running, pretty sure it's just that they're aware that they can wait as long as they want and still fill up completely.
>>
>>8735608

Honestly, I think outside of a few gullibles, these fuckers just end up funding each other. I noticed that Andrew and Tabitha are each other's Patrons and I think it's the same with a bunch of other people.

I thought Andrew had quit the wedding business? That's what he told me awhile ago. Is he still writing fantasy novels?
>>
>>8735537
It was on Jennie Wood's profile, she's a cosplayer and artist
>>
>>8735622

Thanks so much for that. It's really surprising ... I went on there expecting to find a load of whiteknighting but the majority on there are actually anti-Tabs with one commentor even saying she's ruined cosplay for a lot of people in the UK by turning it from a fun hobby into a business. There are a couple of her mates there defending her and the point's been made that people can do what they want with their money and if they want to fund Tabs, it's up to them. Similarly, Tabs would be an idiot not to capitalise on her army of adolescent male sheep.
>>
My issue is that Tabs' Patreon page is a fucking ripoff. She promises loads of regular updates but doesn't deliver. Honest injun, I didn't go on there expecting to see her tits but I joined up expecting plenty of exclusive photos and videos, including video diaries from cons, Q&As and cosplay progress updates. From what I can see, since she joined Patreon, Tabs has done 1-2 photoshoots, her convention videos consist of her spending two minutes in a hotel room screeching about what a lovely day she's had and saying nothing of substance and half of her regular updates are along the lines of "Sorry, I won't be on Twitch later because I've got the sniffles :(" ... I kid you not. Some of the 'exclusive' pics and videos on there end up on Twitter or Facebook a week later and Tabs barely posts on Patreon compared to those other two. People are actually PAYING her for Patreon but it plays third banana to her free accounts.

The thing is, Tabs isn't really providing anything on Patreon that she hasn't provided for free in the past and I think that's going to hurt both the paying and non-paying fanbase. It's just going to piss people off. She doesn't need the fucking money either, she's minted.

I think the Patreon thing is a cynical move by Tabs and I think it's gonna backfire. I certainly don't think she's going to come close to achieving any of her milestone goals. I wish to hell that somebody had warned me against joining before I did so though, so that's what I'm doing now for the benefit of anyone who's considering it.
>>
>>8735897
Honestly she's just copying KJ. KJ took the Twitch market and once she had an income there she did the same thing, less appearances, shorter posts, fewer pictures and so on. Tabby saw that and thought she'd cash in too, but with Twitch mostly taken by KJ, Tabby went to Patreon.

The food chain of copycats goes Nigri, KJ, Tabby, Chiquitita.

I know it's become a bit of a joke meme that Sands is the only legitimate and worthwhile cosplayer in the country but at this point it's pretty accurate. Everybody else is too busy copying each other, racing to get their share of the streaming, patreon and kickstarter money.
>>
chiquitita doesnt have Twitch, patreons or even an amazon wish list. dont think I have ever seen her ask for money she works
>>
>>8735984
yet
>>
>>8735979

I guess though that at least KJ isn't lying about what she can offer on Twitch though. Tabitha makes a big song and dance about her Patreon but it sucks at the end of the day because she can't be arsed to put any creative thought into it and it's barely a blip on her radar. FB is much more important to her, as are Twitter, Twitch, Instagram ... anything really. It's like she has no fucking clue what Patreon actually is or how it works but she's still making cash because of her network of buddies and her army of drones ... sorry, 'Team Tabby'.

At the end of the day, though, people will spend their money how they like. I just thought it was fair to mention that Tabby's Patreon is a total con. I've never seen any feedback about it anywhere else, postive or negative, so here's mine.
>>
>>8736009
It's okay, but no, we all knew her patreon is garbage. Everybody expected as much the moment she announced it and nothing about her or her associates' various similar endeavours have ever given anybody any reason to believe otherwise.

Cosplayer patreons, kickstarters, indie go-gos, gofundmes, tip jars, wishlists, whatever they come up with, are all fucked scams. Even half the charity drives turn out to be scams. When you're talking about a nameable, 'top' cosplayer, it's safest to assume they're scamming you.
>>
No offence to the person commenting, but you have to be stupid to Patreon someone who has many sources of income from elsewhere. You know Tabby will be busy doing whatever pays most and her Patreon as you said is like a tiny blip at the moment, so it just makes business sense for her to concentrate her times awake elsewhere. Shes making as much money as possible from her followers, I say thats a good move, you would do it if you could. I just hope people learn from this and stay away from dodgy cosplayers and photographers with their Patreons.
>>
>>8735979
Honestly? Accurate? You are slagging cosplayers for things they haven't done and then just throwing in some Sands worship because she hasn't done those things either. Nice argument.
>>
>>8736125

Patreon's not totally altruistic, Patrons can expect something in return for their money and Tabitha was promising quite a bit. The problem is, she didn't deliver.

But yeah, I've certainly learned from this ... learned that Tabitha Lyons will squeeze as much money out of her fans as she can and do as little as possible in return.
>>

HI KELLY

>>

>>
>>8736829
KJ and Tabs have though
>>
Yea dont think chiquitita has done anything like that. she posts selfies of herself dressed for work. Despite her good looks I dont think it is her style to ask for money.
>>
>>8737587
I don't really get her as a guest or notable cosplayer, she's a bit of a nothing person, she barely pushes any new costumes out or goes to any cons other than hyper Japan and doesn't involve herself in the community.
I'm sure she's lovely but she always struck me as odd as a guest/cosfamous
>>
>>8737964
This so much.
>>
>>8737587
You mean her facebook page which is nothing but titty photos.

She's following their lead. Nigri got big, KJ copies her, Tabs copies KJ, Chiquitita is following up Tabs. KJ has reached the point of going full Nigri with the boob job and the not actually cosplaying anymore, Tabby has reached where KJ previously was with the shady money begging and has been doing the big boobs center of every photo thing for a while; Chiquitita has now hit that stage.
>>
>>8738155
I don't think she takes it that seriously. As has been said she isn't very active, stays away from drama and has a job that must keep her busy. She's always had boobs in her photos so it's not a recent thing
>>
>>8738165
Nobody was saying it was only recently.

First time I've seen the Chiquitita defence force hit /cgl/ so hard. Guess people gotta jump on something now the SR defence force is no more.

I'd like to see them.

Nobody in this thread even fucking talks about cons anymore, it's all about titty fanservice cosplayer drama and I feel like only about five people actually care about that? It's probably just them posting about each other. I wish we could get back to just talking about cons in here, we got through all of MCM weekend in the space of one thread and I feel like that says a lot. We used to get through like a thread a day for MCM.

And I agree, these threads have gone to shit and it's really disheartening. I want to see more event photos and discussions about other cosplayers, how they're progressing, what cosplays you're all looking forward to seeing.
The girls that are always spoken about aren't even relevant any more, and it's always the same crap being said over and over and over.

I was really disappointed with how little discussion about MCM there was, especially as there was the EC finals, CCCC prelims AND the WCS announcement. There was loads of potential for discussion.
Not to mention all the other events that have been and gone that don't get photos posted or discussed.

When you use width x height in Lightrooms' export dialogue it will scale the image as far down as it needs to fit the smallest dimension, regardless of orientation. So if you type in you want 2400 x 1600 and a bunch of your images are portrait, it will scale them to 1600 high and ignore the width, since the width is already well within the size specified.

Selecting 'dimensions' is similar to using width x height except it takes orientation into account, as long as all the images are of the same aspect ratio to begin with. If you start mixing something like a 3:2 image with a 1:1 and a 6:12 then it'll scale each type of aspect ratio to fit the largest dimension specified.

If you have trouble with the dimensions option, move to either long edge or short edge, depending on which is more important to you. For most people it's long edge. This will still give you two different sizes between portrait and landscape but it's a little easier to tell everything will fit on screen, at least.

You can use megapixels or percentage if you want to do the maths to know how far you need to drop to fit a certain size but this is usually unnecessary. Megapixel specification is mostly for ad and stock agencies and percentage is a bit pointless since it's more likely you know an exact pixel height you want than knowing whether 25% will look good, or whatever.

It's kind of weird that width x height is the default since it's actually the most useless; there's no reason to ever use it instead of dimensions.

Better, the only thing I missed from the O2 was the proper stage. The live room they had at this one just wasn't up to it in terms of its layout.

It was a nice setting though. I look forward to seeing some pictures from those gazebo things, they looked nice, especially after dark with the fairy lights.

Lmao half the con was alcohol stands and I imagine a good chunk of the normie crowd came for alcohol tasting.
>>
I think they could have had better cosplay guest at least ones that actually promotes the event, what's the point of having a load of sluts selling prints no one wants to buy
>>
>>8742760
Like who? HJ doesn't have the cosplayers judge the cosplay competition or run panels so they have no reason to invest in bringing a cosplayer to the con. So they just ask local UK cosplayers who are relatively well known in the UK that will come for free because they get a free con pass out of it.
>>
I think HJ needs to decide whether or not it wants to be a normie cultural festival, and then provide better stages for the martial arts and tea ceremony stuff, or make it into a con and get con-suitable venues, invest more into cosplay and try more with the organisation on that side of things, heard the fashion show organisation was a train wreck.

Agreed HJ needs to work out what it wants to be. At the moment it seems to be a bit of everything so end up not being good for anything and godsake get an indoor venue for winter!

You can leave feedback for the event facebookdotcomslashhyperjapanslash?fref=ts

Comments sound like a bunch of bored middle-aged parents wanting to get pissed on sake and Japanese beer wanting to get cosplay and jfashion even more pushed out. I reckon they could do a cosplay/jfash event and a separate jculture event and make just as much money.
>>
>>8742904
I'd really like to see this. I haven't gone to a few of the last Hyper Japan events so I don't know if this is true, but my friends who did go said normies ruin it in a number of ways. When I have gone, I go in Jfashion so it would suck to see that pushed out. Having said that I would also like to attend a Japanese cultural event that was devoid of weeaboos and so yeah, both appeal to me.
>>
>>8742890
I can see why this may be a better move over all but I have to admit, I actually loved the mix of j-fash, cosplay and traditional arts and sake/general food stuff as I really enjoy all these things - for me it was like having the best bits of j-culture in all its forms all under one roof. I get that it was a bit of a hotchpotch but if they made the areas more separate or even restricted each theme to one floor/level it may help, that way if someone's not interested in one thing or the other it's not difficult to navigate and can be ignored entirely.

Selfishly, I really hope they don't fully separate the themes/displays, it was honestly like one big shopping trip in Japan for me but with the convenience of everything being in one space and crucially, in the UK!

I had a really good time on Sunday, I didn't even mind the occasional bit of cold, it was refreshing from the sweltering sweatfest that event likes expo tend to be.
>>
>>8742949
Separate floors or even separate areas, a bit like how the gaming and kawaii shit were separated at the O2 would be better. I feel like they tried to do it at the Tobacco Dock but it just didn't work. If they'd done top floor = cultural stuff and lower floor = con stuff, it would have worked so much better.

I agree about the cold. A few patio heaters wouldn't have gone amiss, but the way some people are acting it's like they've never experience horrific smelly sweaty con hallways.
>>
>>8742949

It was separate wasn't it? But I agree, I enjoy the total mix, it always bring back memories of trips to Japan for me. You can be at a shrine, up a mountain, in an arcade and in some basement at a concert all in the same day.

>You can be at a shrine, up a mountain, in an arcade and in some basement at a concert all in the same day.

Exactly anon, I loved that aspect!

It was kinda separate but there were a few odd bits 'n bobs as well - not all food on the food floor, some kawaii shit right near the more traditional arts stuff etc. Completely separate floors for things may be a good idea, if only to keep the sake guzzling, dinner set purchasing ' normies' that don't like the kawaii shit happy and visa versa. People can then choose to cross the streams if they feel like it.

I bought a sake set, a chopstick rest, some tabi socks, japanese paper balloons and bunch of lolita accessories - full circle j-tard and absolutely no regrets.
>>
>>8743080
>dinner set purchasing normies
Was it just me or was there a crazy amount of normie people going nuts over those noodle bowls and other crockery? It was flying off the stalls. People were asking me all day where that stand was.

What's the best way to piss away time in London for an afternoon? I'm going over for a gig next month but I get in fairly early and don't want to sit in my room all day before it's on.
>>
>>8743094
depends where the gig is anon but Camden (the original alt fashion and culture district) is a pretty fun place to kill a few hours plus the food they have there is excellent
>>
>>8743156
It's going to be on at Wembley Arena, if that helps.

Camden sounds like a good idea. I've been a couple of times before but never stayed long. I just remember there being so many food stalls I never tried.

yup - the prices were actually really good and the quality was decent, I’m not surprised people were kinda losing their shit over it, much better than the 'Japanese style' crap you get on the high-street. I bought the sake set and chopstick rest from there, plus a piggy bowl I forgot to mention.

Chiquitita was also apparently a guest, but like every con she guests at arrived hours late and not in costume and left hours early
>>
>>8742710
The events main attraction besides the Jfash and culture is the food and discounted sake, a large portion of attendees go solely for it. There were several more rowdy normies wandering around harassing itas that were less family friendly than some cosplayers having a drink. Calm your tits.
>>
>>8742670
There was a poro workshop that Kerry and Kenny hosted around noon

Few togs showed up the usual, they don't like anime or cosplay, just pervy old men being lead on by the cosplayers. Holly is the worst but I guest mean like being used especially Ali, seems like everyone's taxi. Thinks he's got friends but everyone uses him for lifts

Anyone think we could persuade KitaCon and/or the Hilton to ban emotional support animals?

There was some girl with her badly trained emotional support yap at Kita in 2014, she was a volunteer dealing with costume repairs which was at the back of a panel room, of course the little fuck went off at various intervals during panels.
>>
>>8744320
>emotional support animals
Those are things?
>>
I've never been to Kita, are gulls planning on going? Is it worth it?
>>
>>8744479
Personally I love it, but it is most definitely a party con and I'm not sure how enjoyable it would be if you don't like to party.
>>
Cosplaying Mami Tomoe and might give her musket a go myself, or I might commission it, can anyone recommend props commssioners? I'll have a google but nothing beats a solid recommendation.
>>
>>8744584
maybe look towards the LARP community? My first thought was InYourDreamsFX but I don't know if he does guns.
>>
>>8744571
>>8744479
Seconding this entirely. It's my favourite con but it's definitely highly-focused on the party aspect.
>>
kitacon charge a fortune and make no effort to get good guests prof elemental was there last time so shit
>>
>>8742710
I think they were probably just drinking the free sake shots there was a lot of them going around the event. You make it sound like they were at the table chugging ace lightning cider
>>
Recently moved to the UK, what are some of the better cons to attend in the region?
>>
Ali is so disgusting how the fuck dose he think cosplay girls are going to get with him
>>
>>8744479
Kita is easily the best UK con IMO.

The venue is the absolute best thing about it if you ask me. Everything is in one central location so you don't have to walk so much. Went to the last three and I don't think I'll not attend one going forward.

>>8744819
They hardly charge a fortune, they charge basically the same as any con that isn't shit.

>>8744571
>>8744618
I feel the only thing that makes it a party con is that there is actually a decent part going on each night. I stayed it out until closing on the Friday and Sunday nights last year and made it up in time for stuff the next morning no issues - it was nice.

The fuck was that lecture about drinking responsibly last time though? Fucking hilarious that there were enough incidents for them to be that uppity about it. Just made me laugh.

Been lurking here a while. Here are some things I learnt about the Brit thread:
>Everyone loves Kita.
>Everyone loves Lex, Laura and Ben.
>Hates every other cosplayer especially the 3 bigs in the UK.
>Hates every other con.
>Hates all togs bar 2 or 3 and kisses their arses all day.
>There is around 8 regular posters.
>Nobody talks about cosplay or cons.
>Everyone is salty af.
>Nobody says anything constructive.

The only difference between 4chan and the MCM Expo Group is nobody posts any pictures on here therefore nobody asks who they should cosplay as.
>>
>>8744972
Add that they moan about the UK cosplayers invited to cons as guests but can never name an alternative UK cosplayer who should be a guest instead of them.

>>8744902
Kitacon
>>
>>8744948
The worst con venue I've been to in the UK was Kita's previous location the Park Inn Northampton, it seemed fine when I attended Kita there but after Kita moved to the Hilton I attended Fushicon (people yelling in the reception when I was trying to check in) and a Stargate con (pig ignorant staff)
>>
Makes sense it's Laura, lex and Ben posting, that's how they make each other win in competitions
>>
>>8745123
Spooner is the one everyone wants
>>
>>8745123
Pretending that Lex, Laura and Ben don't exist. I'd like Sketch Kyle, Nomes and probably Holly as guests. As that would be a group with experience in props/armor, wigs and sewing. So cosplay judging would be more fair and they could run different panels.

Vendetta-Chan you sure are salty. Until that girl fucks half of the community or strips down to her just her skivvies like Several other Cosplayers she can hardly be called a slut, as for using togs it's widely known that she spends time with them outside of conventions, if she's using them its symbiotic.

Thinking of cancelling my amecon membership and getting a refund to put towards kitacon instead. I think a lot of my friends didn't get places for amecon and I don't even have any accommodation sorted for it and I heard outside the amecon rooms it's kinda hard to get to the place from other hotels. I'm still on the fence though, would people say amecon is that good that I should stick with it? I mostly go to cons to cosplay and have a good time with friends rather than panels/guests/merch stalls.
>>
>>8746109
Amecon is good for the amazing venue, but if you can't find a bed on campus then I recommend you pick Kitacon instead. That's just me though, I hate public transport.

How unacceptable is it to wear anime/manga costumes to LSCC? A friend is getting a table and is struggling to afford to room by herself, and I have comics costumes I could wear but they're a bit tired and old. I don't want to go enough to make a whole new costume, and the ones I have planned aren't comics-related either.
>>
>>8747556
I think it's the only UK event where it is unacceptable as it is a con purely for western media and it has to be to allow LSCC to use the ExCel because of it's contract with MCM so I've heard.
>>
>>8747566

You are allowed to wear whatever costume you want, unless stipulated by the event and the contract with the venue is down to the wording of their events at LSCC.
>>
>>8747556
I think it depends on the cosplay. Wouldn't recommend turning up in Naruto, SnK or a school uniform kind of cosplay. But then something like Claymore would probably be more appreciated by non-anime fans as it looks 'less anime' in general. Just remember most people won't know what you're dressed as if you go in non-comic cosplay.

If you have a video game cosplay I'd wear that over an anime one.
>>
>>8747566
That rule only applies to cosplays entering the competitions. You'e not going to get kicked out if you turn up as Hatsune Miku lol. Just a few odd looks.
>>
>>8747570
>>8747576
Of course you can wear what ever you want. I didn't mean for it to seem like I was saying you can't. It may be considered 'unacceptable' but that doesn't mean it's banned. Just if you have western media costumes you'd be better off wearing them to the event.

>>
>>8747908
They slightly changed the rule so your cosplay only needs to be from something western rather than a comic book. Because of that a lot of people are more interested in entering.

I saw Kenny, Holly and Envyious show interest but Kenny might be too busy getting his ECG cosplay done to enter.
>>
>>8747929
I don't see why Kenny should even bother trying for ECG. Because of his skits everyone is so ashamed of him that hes got little to no UK support. Plus there was a warning from ECG that he shouldn't do that skit or he'd get a penalty.
>>
When will Kita announce the dickbutt winners. I want to see if my shitty entry got through.

Thanks for the advice. I'll have to bite the bullet and just tell her I don't want to go, rather go to Kita and wear shit I want to wear.

What's the likelihood of MCM London being used as target practice for Ahmed now that Cameron's letting loose on Syria?
>>
>>8748012
I was thinking this exact thing after the Paris attacks. There's such a high attendance rate at expo, and even with all this security there's never been any bag searching. Plus how easy would it be to hide a firearm/bomb under a costume?
>>
>>8748012
Well they will blend in easy as pacman ghosts so its quite probable.
>>
>>8748012
I feel like there are so many other, bigger, more advertised events - I'd be more worried about using the tube in general, or going to Wembley/O2, that kind of thing. But the ExCel is such a big venue, if I wasn't already eh about MCM I would be now. They'll have to massively up security. But I doubt ISIS' first plan of attack is going to be "aim for the nerds", any event at the ExCel is a risk.
>>
>>8748038

The Excel is owned by Arabs. I very much doubt it'll be a target.
>>
>>8748038
Yeah I was thinking about the stadiums as well but they generally tend to have a lot better security at least.
>>
>>8748042
Yeah because they're all the same thing right?

>>8748038
Has a point it would be more high profile political events, with people of importance that would be targeted. IE a football game between two counties where a leader is there to see it.
>>
>>8748054
>Eagles of Death Metal
>high profile political event

They'll target anywhere with a lot of people that represents everything they hate about Western culture and enjoying things. MCM is perfect

BLOG INCOMING

>that MIYABI room
>the prices
I bought a frog incense holder for my girlfriend for Christmas. The fucking thing was the size of my thumb and was £5. The sellers were all super nice though, even the guy selling the £4000 dolls who knew he wouldn't get any business. Had a great talk with him about craftsmanship and kimonos and took like three of his (adorably Engrish) booklets to give to friends, since those dolls really were great.
I didn't get any booze since I didn't have my ID and look about 16, so I made up for it spending twenty pounds on Puccho.
Got myself a couple of anime figures to feed the inner weeb, and got a couple of cute owls from that French shop near the entrance.
Girlfriend got a cute new bag, some sweets, hair accessories from the French place, some Rilakuma stuff, lucky cats, stationary, that kinda stuff. Mostly trinkets for stocking fillers and a couple of bigger things, like bowls for jewellery and such.
We both found it really good. The map was a bit hard to follow at first but could be figured out, and I was searching for that guy with the figure stall that's at every con (I'm sure he knows me by now).

London Anime and Gaming Con in February next (I don't have high expectations). Hopefully our Animal Crossing cosplays will be done but if not, my Bloodborne one will.

Him throwing things into the crowd is only one thing that should have had him disqualified immediately. He should not have won at all, good costume or not. He broke the rules.

But look at the tits. That's all she is now. She's living her dream.....

>>8749201
It was his ECG prelim skit so it's easy to find online. He threw a space hopper into the audience. Cgl makes it sound like he chucked a chair but still think he should have lost points for it.
>>
>>8749210
She's so fit!
>>
>>8749282
Oh I thought maybe he threw like sweets or money or something. Why's everyone shitting themselves over it?
>>
>>8749328
Because it's against the rules & he should have been disqualified. Throwing anything into the audience without prior warning is a health & safety hazard. No matter what the item.
Not only that but the rest of his skit was bullshit. He always does the same. Starts serious and falls into a shitty dance skit that's meant to be funny but isn't.
Dance skits are bad enough on their own unless it works with the source material.
>>
>>8749338
The worst part is he'll keep doing the same shit if he knows it annoys people. He might be a skilled costume and prop maker, but one glance at his fb page and you can see he also thinks he's a "master troll".
>>
>>8749360
What's his fb page?
>>
>>8749360
I know, it's unfortunate and shows how much of an idiot he is. ECG is a serious competition. If he wants that be a troll and mess about then he should do so for a more appropriate comp like CCCC which, although is a tough competition, doesn't take itself too seriously.

>>8749371
It's not hard to look up. We're not going to spoonfeed you.
>>
I heard they were both told they couldn't dance at all in the ecg finals as it was a serious competition

Oh and the space hopper should have disqualified them immediately for breaking rules and for throwing a fucking projectile onto a bunch of kids sat on the floor. But there was only one other group entry and there costumes fell off on stage, it was less of a win and more the fact there were no other options
>>
>>8749188
>>8749338

The throwing was planned and there was someone off stage to catch it. The organisers were asked and "should be fine" was the answer.
>>
>>8749391
I think the two groups scored pretty evenly in the costume category but Kenny and Kerry did better in performance (minus the space hopper) because the other group had really bad costume malfunctions at the end of their skit.
>>
>>8749391
We are allowed to dance but not going to this time. We already have a skit + actual props planned.
>>
>>8749414
If any organisers were aware, it certainly wasn't all of them. Everyone I spoke to was disgusted they had blatantly broken the rules.

I think under normal circumstances they'd be disqualified but with the other teams malfunctions they didn't have much choice.
>>
>>8747500
Considering her twitter is personal and not to do with her cosplay, this means your either stalking her or a friend. Thats really pathetic either way.

Also as far as I can see, she's hated by people we all hate? Like Kyle his GOT buddies, so really thats more of an endorsement if you ask me
>>
>>8747909
She's way younger then that, your vendetta be showing again.

>>8747954
I had Kenny on fb for a few days before getting rid of him, he thinks he's a comedy god but is really just a dick.

>>8748038
I just bet either way MCM will up security to new crazy levels, soon it will be no masks, no bags and body screening.

Laura, you are so obvious. If you want things kept private don't respond here or post on twitter in the first place. Personal? Your twitter banner is full of cosplay and was linked to your page. Are you actually delusional at this point?

Shes showing her true colours, just wants to be friends to people that will support her and give her money. Shes just using everyone for her own benefit.
>>
>>8750665
>>8750770
>>8750774
It's no surprise the only people left who have anything to do with her are Andrew and Kelly and of those two only Kelly really talks to her much. Everybody else is reduced to being civil to her at best but nobody hangs with her any more. You knew shit had gone south for Tabby when even Stacy dumped her.

If you're going to accuse every single Anon of being someone particular, you better come up with better proof. Saying it's the same person when they type the same and then saying it's still the same person when they write differently is really, really dumb.

I get the impression we could all tripfag and post timestamped selfies with every post and there would still be somebody in these brit threads screaming that every single post is a Laura selfpost or some shit.
>>
>>8750664
Hardly anon if she's making it clear who she is

So do we actually know anything about LSCC yet? It's getting close and desu its the prime drama time of the year. There seem to be some new rules compared to last year. Any idea who's entering or is everyone keeping it secret?
>>
Trying to find this pic from aaaaaaages ago of a shitty ff12 group from a few years ago. Anyone got it? google did nothing.
>>
>>8750869
>>8750660

kek she's not here, she's off abusing another 15 year old fuccboi she'll call a bf. No one mature would go there
>>
>>8750826
Lolz you'd be reet!...
If I cosplayed. Kek. will save ur idea for another day, ta 4 the tip bro ;)
>>
>>8750875
People seem to be keeping it pretty quiet this time, probably because of the drama last year on here. There are probably loads more who just haven't announced, but so far I've seen:

Aretsaya and Oddtogs,
Helen Alice Cosplay in a group I think?? With one of the Beth's.
The penguin and joker from last year
Andy Valentine
and a few foreign people who don't look to be much competition.
Don't think either laura or lex are entering this year either
>>
>>8750800
This. People have said they don't want to pair up and cosplay with her because they want to avoid the drama that she surrounds herself with.
>>
>>8751492
Lex & Laura are entering WCS so it's highly unlikely they'll be doing LSCC.
>>
>>8751542
Same with Kenny and Kerry probably because of ECG
>>
>>8751627
Thank God we don't have to suffer another comedy skit
>>
>>8751492
Helen Alice is in a group with Mega Beth, the irritatingassassin guy who always Cosplays conner is entering too and Kaldori (this years uk euro entry) is entering as Xena and Callisto with her mate
>>
>>8751644
Is he wearing Connor for it? Became its a bit lame to enter with something that's already won elsewhere.
>>
>>8751644
literally who is anyone you mentioned
>>
>>8751683
They all have facebook pages under the names mentioned. It's not hard to find out.
>>
>>8751683
I think his making a new one but still conner?
>>
>>8751492
What's Valentine competing with?
>>
>>8751853
Apparently Prince Jon from Disney Robin Hood. So a fur suit
>>
>>8751853
He's not entering this year. Just attending.
>>
>>8751860
I thought he was doing Hook? That's what he's been posting on his Facebook
>>
>>8751872
He posted his year line up ages ago saying he'd get hook done at some point but didn't have a con planned for it and Prince John is first in the lineup list, but who knows or cares with him?

I would like to see some of these so called cosplay celebs aka sexy cosplay girls enter to prove themselves
>>
>>8751931
Implying the UK has any genuinely sexy cosplay girls
>>
>>8751931
Names?
>>
>>8751938
Are you a fucking idiot? They very likely mean KJ, Tabs & Stacey. But we don't need to discuss them any more as there is nothing new to discuss. They are worthless and irrelevant to the UK cosplay scene.

What would be good, is to to discuss what UK cosplayers that we like.

>Who has entered any competitions recently that you've been impressed with?
>Who would you like to see enter some competitions?

Personally, I really like seeing works from Nomes, Exelia and Emizone who are all competition regulars but I would love to see TheStarlightFairy enter competitions as I'm always really impressed with the work she puts out and think she has the potential to push herself further and do well in competition.
>>
>>8751953
I really feel like Emizone needs more recognition, I saw her Sakura dress in person briefly at Kitacon and it was so gorgeous, her and Felixize did an amazing job on it. She's been an amazing cosplayer for years but her name is never mentioned much.
>>
>>8751963
Agreed, Emizone's work is amazing, and always looks so clean. I've been a fan of hers for years, and I'm enjoying watching her develop her photography skills as well as her sewing ones.
I love Exelia too. Considering how fast she works on things, it always comes out looking really good! I'd love to see what she could do if she took on a big project and worked on it for a bit longer
>>
>>8751971
I don't follow Exelia as much but she always seems to be working on something and I wish I had that kind of commitment.
Emi is super cute too, it's not fair that she can magically suit any character she wants.
That whole circle is pretty good to be honest, Emis boyfriend (I think) cosplays as well and usually nails it.
>>
>>8751963
That dress was simply stunning. They really did do an excellent job. It's such a shame that Felixize doesn't do as much as I'd love to see her cosplay more.

>>8751981
I'm forever jealous of Emi's ability to suit any character. She definitely has a cosplay face.
Same with Isamiaella. Produces good work & magically suits everyone.
>>
>>8751989
Isamiaella is amazing, I follow her instagram. I'd love to see a big project from her sometime soon.
>>
>>8751963
>She's been an amazing cosplayer for years but her name is never mentioned much.
Just far less drama than others probably. I wonder who's been cosplaying the longest in the scene, Laura posted cosplay from 2006 on her FB
>>
>>8752027
Think KJ has been cosplaying around 7 years, as has PT. I loved Lauras then and now photo she posted, gives me a bit of hope.
>>
>>8752046
PT has been cosplaying since 2009
>>
>>8752027
>>8752046
>>8752059
Laura is the longest in terms of people who have stayed active consistently year to year, not taking breaks and stuff. She's been going since 2006 solid, so she's on ten years. There's nobody else who has been around longer than her in one long go. KJ started about six months later than Laura so she's second-most senior though I suppose maybe this last year doesn't count for her since she's done lots of international cons but rarely does UK any more and she's not presented a new costume in a year? I think it could be argued that KJ is generic hot gamer girl from the internet now, not a cosplayer per se.

It's pretty crazy actually when you think Laura and KJ have been around more or less the same time and they started at pretty much the same level and then you look at where each of them is now and they couldn't be more different. It's almost like alternate timelines of the same person, ending up at the two extremes from just a couple of small choices early on.
>>
>>8752059
And has hardly cosplayed much or improved.
>>
Any other cosplayers you like?

Any favourite photos of a cosplay? Post pics.

Are there any WIP or plans from anyone you're really looking forward to seeing?
>>
>>8752182
Riot Cosplay is a fave of mine, lots of comic book cosplays
>>
I know the winter/christmas one has just gone, but is hyper japan worth going to? Always see the posters but ive never bothered to go/dont know anyone whos been. Is it good or just overpriced stuff you could get off aliexpress?
>>
>>8752218
Hyper Japan is pretty decent if you like Sake, Japanese food and culture in general and find Street style stores worth browsing. I would no longer consider it a con to cosplay at. The winter venue would have been great in summer/spring, it was very cold and wasn't advertised as an 'outdoor' event as it should have been
>>
>>8752182
I like Hildaglitz and Teacup Erinyes at the moment. I'll post more, and photos, when it's not half eleven and I'm supposed to be at work at 7.
>>
>>8752224
Thanks, ill probably head along to the next one then! How expensive would you say it is?
>>
Van Helen Cosplay is another amazing cosplayer, incredible seamstress as well as very attractive.
>>
Voxophone Cosplay, tends to do simple/store bought cosplays but great at contouring/applying makeup to look like the character.
>>
Gulper Eel Cosplay, very cute and does a lot of good cosplays
>>
>>8752218
I really enjoy it. I'm weeb trash and love taking photos of street fashion and I like cosplaying from anime but there's very little cosplay and a lot of stuff you can just get on ali or taobao, but also food stuff that is normally good and some cute handmade stuff that yeah you can get on etsy but it's nice to see in person. I'd say worth going if you like lolita and Japanese food.
>>
Isamiella cosplay, as mentioned before
>>
BexiBeans Cosplay, she's really come a long way!
>>
>>8752256
I like her but I swear to god there's always some kind of drama in the Disney group. Something always goes down. Someone cheated on someone, someone made someone's costume too big or small, someone bailed on an event, etc.
>>
>>8752250
ok cool thanks, ill probs go to the next one! May as well give it a go, thanks for the response
>>
>>8751981
Yeah the between them two they always seem to be planning something. Although Exelia definitely more so.

Ah yeah Emi's bf used to cosplay an amount but seemed to have stopped? Although I'm sure I've seen him do some more recently. He doesn't really big himself up when I talked to him, just seems to enjoy cosplaying, and I agree he suits the plethora of characters he typically tries.
>>
>>8752240
is she the one who does photography?

I love Isamiella's stuff, it's always spot on

>>8752240
Don't forget all the photoshop. She mainly photographs herself, which is a little weird.

What's a good way to get a prescription for contact lenses so I can get circle lenses and look kawaii?

Was thinking of just walking into Specsavers but I'm never sure if they will supply the measurements when I ask for them.

Go to specsavers and get a lense fitting
>>
>>8752240
Really? Her makeup is messy and Hayley Smith level
>>
>>8751492
Another girl announced last night by the looks of it
>>
>>8751860
This wouldn't surprise me. Disney has won the past two years. Plus fursuits tend to trump competitions. So he's just combined the two.
>>
>>8752836
i hope something other than disney wins this year. Nothing against it as a disney fan myself, but it'd be nice to see some variety. Plus it could discourage people from entering with non disney stuff.
>>
>>8752760
who?
>>
>>8752836
He's not entering. Just making it.

Tabitha trying to defend her Patreon, funniest thing ever...

For the love of god post caps when you wanna talk shit

>>8752901

I love Isamiella, was a massive fan of their Homestuck cosplays back in 2013 and they've continued to do good stuff.

Captain Amelia?
>>
>>8752950
Nah Enviyous
>>
>>8753009
Yeah that's the one. She hasn't said what she's entering with yet, just that she's entering
>>
early days but who do you think will place in the top 10? i think one of the europeans will win it, the uk scene is pretty dry.
>>
>>8753094
Seriously dry. That must be why it was a UK whitewash last year.
>>
>>8753032

Got a link pls? This I must see. After that lil' Facebook discussion about Tabs' Patreon, she actually got in touch with the people on whose page the discussion started - she demanded that everyone needed to stop talking about her. So she's a bit prickly about Patreon at the moment. Sounds like a war on two fronts because she was moaning on Twitter about some old friend stabbing her in the back or something.
>>
>>8753094
The penguin joker pair will place because they will have the only funny skit. All other UK are only concerned about the costume and have boring skits.
That said some of the UK have good craft. From what I've seen so far theyre playing to their strengths.
>>
>>8753132
>Britfags
>stabbing in the back
NEVER!
>>
>>8753134
How do you know they have the only funny skit though, we only know of about 5 people entering and any of them could have a comedy skit
>>
>>8753254
The other skits won't have their comedy. The problem with the other entrants is skits just not being funny. Have seen this before.
>>
>>8753244
Its Tabs we're talking about here, she'll jump at the chance to stab any one in the back given half the chance.
I'll give her something, she sure knows how to pull off that nice act online and around the right people.
>>
>>8753312
She is the devil
>>
>>8753286
This
Plus basically 0 chance internationals will have a funny skit because of the translations and different senses of humour.
>>
>>8753286
My point was more we barely know of any of the entrants so you can't really say they can't do humour.
>>
>>8753343

>>
>>8753522
buuuuuuuuuuut they probably won't be. It's a large competition involving skits. It's going to mostly be shit awkward comedy
>>
a lot of cosplayers do comedy and place like Kerry and Kenny. but i heard you cant do comedy at ECG finals

Would rather people shit at comedy not even attempt it than trainwreck.

next time post a photo of her face then you ass.

what UK cosplayer would you shag?
>>
>>8753700
I think things are done for the year, Hyper Japan 2016 is probably the nearest one

it was more the fact you were pointing out how attractive she was, and then used a photo where the costume honestly does cover her entire face.

The bigger risk with her is everyone she sleeps with she immediately decides is The One, so you can look forward to her never leaving you alone, expecting you to pay for everything for her and throwing a hissy fit when you dump her.

Then there's the burning rash, too.
>>
>>8753908

Still reckon it'd be worth it.
>>
>>8753790
Any more? some of these are pretty good, Aome are shits in person though.
>>
>>8753790
Hannah Lydia doesn't get the fact taking romantic photos with her boyfriend as Brooker/Elizabeth may make some people uncomfortable and went off on some huge rants and it was all very embarrassing.
>>
>>8753787
>>8753790
Never heard of some of these, I'd love for some more collages like these of the lesser known ones.
>>
>>8754045
May make her real dad uncomfortable.
>>
>>8754045
Her wig is terrible for Elizabeth. Makes me wonder if they weather and cover every costume in dirt to hide the fact everything is poor quality.
>>
>>8754642
It looks just like it does in game tho so
>>
>>8754642
Something is wrong with her spine or corset because with each photo it get more wonky. everything needs maximum dirt because that's his gimmick.
>>8754811
Didn't see the bit where she put gel in her fringe
>>
>>8754811
It's a mess
>>
>>8754642
Her short Elizabeth wig is a mess, but I think the DLC black one she has and the longer one is okay, too. But I do think there's a little unnecessary weathering, a clean costume would have suited Paris a lot more.

>>8754045
I don't really care if people ship that shit or like it or whatever but it's like a ex-room mate of mine who posted pro-life shit on tumblr, in the fucking pro-choice tag, and then was surprised when people got angry. It's plain stupidity. If it's touchy, maybe keep it to yourself or keep it within certain circles. Girl seems to like a lot of fucked up romantic ships, though, worries me slightly.
>>
Hannah Lydia and Weathered King cosplay. Please stop posting the half cosplay half ref images. It's embarrassing.
Unless the costumes are spot on perfect, this is only going to highlight flaws.
>>
So outta who we know is entering so far, anyone we reckon could do well? I'm not really familiar with any of them
>>
>>8754879
But bandwagon tho
>>
>>8754869
Posting the Paris set of photos they did so soon after the attack seemed to be a bad move too.
They got a lot of stick for the lovey dovey poses and then for tagging Paris in them on the official Bioshock page.
>>
>>8754930

>>8754977
She's crazy. That's all you need to know.
>>
>>8753985
It ain't. Multiple confirmed exes of hers are on record saying she's shit in the sack. One of those girls who thinks just looking hot is enough to make fucking good and doesn't actually do anything. She's such a shit lay, Mark stopped bothering when they were dating and resorted to mostly wanking. Her only party tricks are she has an easy time taking it in the ass and she always swallows. Don't expect her to actually do anything more than laying there like a dead fish and taking it, though.
>>
>>8754071
This. More collages please.
>>
>>8755032
I believe the term is "pillow princess". Anyone know any UK cosplayers that are actually good in the sack?

What're they all making?
>>
>>8755300
Aretsaya and Oddtogs are doing 2015 Cinderella and Fairy Godmother. Their progress looks good so far.
>>
>>8755178
No that's the thing. The little quiet ones are the wildcats and the ones who shove everything in your face 24/7 are lazy, boring bangs.
>>
>>8755343
Nah that's bullshit, all my gfs have been crazy both in and out of bed. Shy girls are boring.
>>
>>8755343

Sucks to be straight then.

Are there any lesbian or bi UK cosplayers? Asking for a friend...

>>8755419
Lots. Try in the LGBTQ MCM group
>>
>>8755443
Mmm novotel underage sex dungeon.
>>
>>8755419
KJ claims to be bi, never acts on it if she is. SR is.

>>8755381
Never stick your dick in crazy. Crazy is not a good thing.
>>
another no name cosplay "guest" has been announced for LAGC lol
>>
when has SR got with a girl. thought she was engaged
>>
>>8755484
>>8755535
you don't have to get with someone of the same sex to be bi though. You are much more likely to find someone of the opposite sex than the same sex.
>>
>>8755551
Plus SR has been with her SO since before she got into the cosplay scene. Being bi =/= sleeping around
>>
>>8755567
yeah, gotta say I absolutely hate the stereotype that being bi means you're a slut
>>
>>8755535
She is and they've been together a long time but that's never stopped her from getting off with women. They've got some kind of "it's okay as long as it's not a guy" arrangement.

I mean take it with a HUGE pinch of salt but I heard once that part of the reason Stacey turned against KJ so hard so fast is because she was trying to bang her and got knocked back.
>>
>>8755534
there are a few actually, but look at this train wreck.
>>
>>8755632
literally who
>>
>>8755627
an arrangement where he can watch her hook up with women?.Now KJ and SR lezzing off is a print I would buy for $20
>>
>>8755632
'may even do a talk on stage'
what's that? You might actually do something deserving of a guest position??
Though what the talk will be about remains to be seen.
>>
>>8755632
ugh ffs, this girl is always posting on the mcm group about shit all, trying to whore out her page at every opportunity
>>
>>8755644
She's a generic alt nudey model who made friends with a couple of cosplayers and figured she might be better off doing the convention loop than doing lines with emo metal bands. She's mostly famous for having legitimately huge emo hair and losing in a fight with Nina Terror. The last thing she did of any note was a musician friend of hers was going down for multiple charges of sexual assault and sex with minors, and she thought it would be smart to go down with the ship, saying it was the victims' fault.

......... But she's super cheap and she's done enough nude work for people to jerk off on so she's a perfect fit for an LAC guest.
>>
>>8755645
I don't think he gets to watch. He actually seems to get pretty pissy about it but she gets very defensive about her sexuality so it's like if he doesn't put up with her she might ditch him and he knows he's already punching way above his class.

The way KJ and SR are both getting desperate for hits I wouldn't be surprised if your idea came true. Cosplay lesbian hate-fucking would probably make them both a fortune.
>>
>>8755681
probably thought she'd do better cosplaying since she put a bit of weight on
>>
Can we get a ship name for SR and KJ together my idea is Skelly?
>>
>>8755714
Some great fanfic could be written about KJ and Stacey. So much jealousy and hate when they are both basically the same and decide to settle their feud and surrender to their hidden desires.

They both claim to be bisexual but would bet they have never acted on it. Seems like a good way for them both to finally do it. They should set up a Patreon for it.
