I have Masa added on Snapchat, and I don't think he cosplays anymore. I think he moved on to Twitch gaming or something.
>>
>>8747320
The board became shit because of trips circlejerking and derailing all the threads. Which also caused a no people specific drama rule and ruined a good portion of board culture. It was shit then and it's shit now, just a different kind of shit.
>>
>>8747492

/cgl/ is a soulless husk of a board

I'd take tripfags and dramu over this any day

maybe one day Jap Moot will undo the damage of his predecessor

>>
>>8747446
Most of us got jobs or graduated school / have a great group of friends so we don't need /cgl/ anymore. Some of us are still drifting on in life but who am I to judge.

>>8747492
Nah when this board first started pre-masa and pre-mags it was all cosplay and cosplay-related drama. Then trips invaded and half of them were cool and half of them were shit.Then /fit/ invaded and fucking annoyed everyone. Then /cgl/ banned drama, etc. Then the board died. Then /cgl/ bitched that there was no drama.

Case in point: This board was fucking stupid but most of us met some great people from it so eh. I agree with you.

>>8747541
Well, this is what we got. We're mostly on topic /heavily moderated but the traffic/daily posts has gone down by at least 80%
>>
>>8747452

This is completely tangential but honestly Claudie just leave this board and focus on school.
>>
>>8747667
I think the board was a lot more social then it is now. Mostly bc there was a lot more trip/names around posting frequently.
>>
>>8747676

Ehhhhhhh we hate to admit it but we have a love/hate relationship with drama. Also I hope you're going to Otakon next year!
>>
>>8747150
J, stop asking for yourself in every nostalgia thread as if anyone actually have a shit.

Oh no doubt. This board was built on drama haha.

She's not dead. But she has cut herself off from anyone involved in the community and is living her own life now. I hope she is doing well.

Lofi also is still around sometimes. I hung out with him at Fanime.

Does he still cosplay?

How are his tats holding up/ does he regret them yet?

I still have Lofi's nudes from when /cgl/ was red

>This board was fucking stupid but most of us met some great people from

Pretty much. It's very interesting that a lot of the people from that era of /cgl/ still hang very regularly. At this point, there are these groups/partyfriends/confriends at conventions where people don't know exactly where they know them from, just that they became friends from someone/something stemming from /cgl/.

I like to think the seagull meetups were the start of a lot of these. They've kind of diffused after so long, but a lot of the relationships are still there. It's quite an interesting phenomenon and might make for a great novel/movie/play/sitcom someday*


*I would like royalties from this idea if you decide to run with it and it becomes huge.
>>
>>8748306
I feel like there is some sort of comradery within the seagulls, especially the ones on the west coast. A lot of us are friends on multiple social media platforms and hang out outside of cons.
>>
>>8748200
Man theres an old pic.

God damn it I was just thinking about how embarrassing the tripfag days were, I thought the spreadsheets had been lost to time.

>>
>>8748306
It's true. Some of the people I met through /cgl/ and tripping have wound up being very dear friends or just about family for me.
I mean, a lot of us grew up, apart, or moved on with our lives, but a lot of the friendships that were built in those years are still going stronger than ever.
Good people can be found in the least likely of places, and through here I've met some of the best I know (regardless of the stupid shit we got up to on here years ago).
>>
It's like all of you lurk hoping someone makes the slightest mention of you so you can slap your trips on and start circlejerking again.
And no, many people do not miss cgl 2010/12 for the fact that you assholes had a thread about yourselves on the first page everyday. If you've made so many close friends, then take it to the proper social media. Nobody else cares about your true and honest friendships.
>>
>>8747541
I sometimes miss the days of old, but the drama was often really obnoxious. I once asked for help on how to go about Meltdown Rin and it almost immediately was sidetracked into a JJ drama thread.

Speaking of oldfag shit, I think one of the weirdest things for me is how often JJ is posted to HS threads with hardly any discussion surrounding her drama. I remember when simply posting a pic of her was bountiful seagull bait, but now no one says anything because most hamsteaks are too new to remember the days when she was our queen. I'm sure if someone posted a pic of Usagi Kou, hardly anyone would know who she was either.
>>
>>8748200
Why do people trip on here? Serious question. I just can't think of any reason to trip on /cgl/ other than; a) you're delivering or responding to people in a specific thread and having a name greatly quells confusion, b) for sales threads, or c) attentionwhoring. One tripfag said it was because ~they want to be held responsible for what they say~ but a girl who knows said tripfag IRL told me they've personally seen her drop her trip for the sake of talking shit about people, plus there's been a few instances of tripfag said same gagging and forgetting to take out their name. So yeah, I don't really buy that explanation.
>>
>>8749022
*tripfags samefagging and forgetting to take out their name
I need to turn autocorrect off
>>
>>8747198
That's fucking intense
>>
>>8749022
There is a very strong social aspect to /cgl/ because we frequently attend conventions and meet ups (this goes both ways for cosplayers and lolitas) So tripping is a good way for us to identify who we are talking to and who we might be seeing in person soon.

>>8748994
We do, we've been circle jerking on facebook for years now. In fact I don't see much old trip fag stuff mentioned on here these days.
>>
Is Lothos still alive or nah?
>>
I think my favourite thing about the old trips is that the ones who used to stir up SO MUCH SHIT are lolcows themselves/actively hang out with and immerse themselves in drama now, so that's pretty fucking hilarious.

I do miss the community we had, but at the same time it was so goddamn annoying when a thread derailed because two trips (who could've just gone to skype or facebook) decided to talk about something on the thread.

I was friends with a lot of the trips for years but the sekrit klub shit was annoying as fuck, and basically unless you were narcissistic enough to trip or call attention to yourself you were practically ignored.
>>
Does anyone have old pictures of trips or anything from back then? Bitching about the past is cool and all, but I'd like to enjoy some nostalgia
>>
A blast to the past.
>>
I always thought tripfags used tripping as the quick and easy way to achieve some level of notoriety in the anime cosplay scene. Including my friends who tripped. Masa was the only one who was actually honest about this; everyone else pretended like they did it to be "honest" and "accountable" (until they forgot to drop their trip *snort*).

Then the cosplay scene moved away from 4chan and LJ and found a new home on Facebook pages and suddenly, anime cosplayers who needed only be thin, mildly attractive, and decent seamstresses to be loved had to compete with hotter women who did more "mainstream" comic book costumes and could grow bigger fanbases than cosplayers who only wanted to gain notoriety to OTHER cosplayers.

Basically, what I'm saying is, the "get well-known quick" schemes for cosplayers went from tripping on 4chan to buying fake likes on Facebook.

Ironically, tripping seems so much more fulfilling in comparison.
>>
>>8747492
The only thing worse that the trip circlejerking was the anons who would shit down people's necks for just using a tripcode or completly ignore a good post made just because it was made by a tripfag

>>8750089
Fucking this. Hell, I once got a 3-day ban for responding to a trip in an on topic thread, and was told it was for contributing to the tripfag circlejerk.
>>
>>8749022
A lot of people meet eachother at cons, so it's easier to talk to them/make plans if you have a trip on

I've got the male list too

What were the purpose of these charts anyways?
>>
>>8750390
Whatever happened to Charizard? Didn't he fuck some underageb& trip and kinda disappear?
>>
>>8750425
Those were typically posted to other boards to prove not all seagulls were fujoshit landwhales to get robots or fitfags to flood the board with stupid threads.

The rate charts were just to cause internal drama/done my trips trying to gain points with the ones the rated high.

First off, a lot of the trips actually became friends with each other in real life and took their circlejerk to FB. It's kinda surreal watching a big group of randoms slowly develop actual friendships.

>Masa
Staffs AX now. Still hosts LCS

>Maguma
Still active here and hasn't changed much from his old cgl ways. Heavily helps promotes ALA as he's staff

>EDG
Has seriously stepped up his cosplay game and is getting a lot of fans. Recently was commissioned by Sony to make a cosplay for "PlayStation Experience"

>Zal
Is a cosplay guest for some AZ cons. Keeps a low profile online but goes to a lot of CA cons

Ahhh Hobbes, I'd still fuck him.

I never tripped and rarely posted, but I've lurked for a long damn time and this is so nostalgic. I kind of regret not at least going to seagull meetups at cons back when the social aspect of cgl was in full swing, but I was always too scurred of the big bad tripfags.....

Most of us, at least on the west coast, are irl friends now. Why post 4chan to communicate when we can directly talk on facebook etc. I think getting older and more mature has decreased the need for drama and thus posting on here. When I first started going to cons and hanging with seagulls, there was some sort of drama every con, and at this point I cannot remember the last time there was. The only bad part of this is that cgl as a board is far less interesting.
>>
>>8754596
I don't think even if I put my trip on people would remember me lol. Maybe the same for others.
>>
Most tripfags have simply moved on. We do visit during major conventions. But for all intents and purposes due to the overwhelming threads on EGL instead of cosplay, the old culture of /cgl/ as we know it is dead.

I'm the only person in the world who has threads of /cgl/ including images from 2008 to near the end of 2010.

I doubt anyone cares about /cgl/ actual roots though, but here.

Charizard was dating some crazy as dicks girl who dumped him and then got married to a different guy like 2 weeks after knowing him or something. Screams green card to me. He's dating some chubby girl from the east coast now, Erica or Erin or some 'E' name like that.
Masa is so SJW it's painful. Not too sure if he still cosplays.
Maguma does though, I'm a fan of his Gjinka's.
I remeber hearing about Western Fella and it's a god damn shame.
Mika,Matt and Coffee all have normal lives but still cosplay irr

As for girls
I only know of like 2 personally but they are both still around /cgl/ every now and then so I wouldn't really call that a WATN situation.

Miyu is one of the few positive stories to come out of cosplay drama. She got off the drugs, took up teaching figure skating and personal fitness and developed a six pack you could grate cheese on.
