totally missed this in the last thread, thanks Tully. I'm going to re-read the thread now.

No problem Anon, after doing this for so long I don't even know any better.

>Tully
No, Tully-chan (churi-chan) is the cute mascot and voice activated hotel room gizmo from Huis ten Bosch. I started using (and hiding) her in the OP images ever since a femanon posted it here way back. Well that and it makes for a perfect coverup as people always assume I'ma girl because of it. No, I'm just your friendly neighbourhood OP who is in it for the money.
>>
>>9332985
Now I spend my time looking for tully in this pic but I don't think it's in there, is it?
>>
>>9333003
No, I didn't edit a single thing on this OP pic, in fact I pulled it from Google and used it straight away. I really need to find the time to build/shop/draw a new collection sometime soon.

Great, now I rewatched the 3 op Reis episode and both the Tully standing in the hotel lobby and the drawn Tully's in the instruction manual are all missing the hearts. Thanks Anon, now I'm wondering which version is the right one.
>>
>>9333014
>>9333026
Prikpil is pretty awesome too with the most common side effect being not getting any periods until it wears off. It's pretty much the most awesome thing as long as you don't get or can't handle any of the other side-effects.

lol I got confused before realizing that "Tully" in that sentence was actually just referring to OP.

Dat femanon here. Now I'm confused too. The Tully mascot I saw at Huis Ten Bosch also had the hearts though. I think all the mascots have hearts at least, that other picture is some sort of lamp statue (but the reason I posted that one was because I thought it was super cute!). I'm just taking a wild guess, that the hearts may have a function. But idk what the function is for the lamp. Btw idk if you saw/noticed before, but there are also more versions than pink (though I'm guessing it is the 'original' color).
>>
>>9333145
Wait, are those hearts meshes? Maybe they added them later on so the person inside the costume can actually see where they're going.
>>
>>9333172
You're probably right. The last time I was at htb, the hearts were used for the person inside to see where (s)he's going, in addition to the aides walking with Chuli.
>>
>>9333014
I've got an IUD (mirena) and the first time it stopped me from having a period for 4 years. Now I get them again with my 2nd one, but they're not as bad anymore. They're slowly getting less again. So maybe after a while, I'll stop having periods again.
>>
>>9333172
>>9333517
Yeah that makes sense, and that was indeed what I was thinking too.
>>
I'm pretty excited for Dynamiccon to be honest, but mostly because the focus on pokemon is so present. It reminds of the good old days when we still had pokemonday.
>>
>>9333014
get a mooncup. As long as you empty it twice a day there's only a very small chance of leakage but that's if you put it in wrong.

Marktplaats is just as bad. Last year I decided to sell off most of my manga. Everything was in good condition (no folds, broken spines, stains etc), read once and stored out of direct sunlight. I only charged €1~€3 per volume (depending on the series and amount bought) as I just wanted to clear up some closet space and didn't cared that much about the money.
Now the older series had a few people outbidding each other and ended up selling for €4~€6 per volume. The newer stuff on the other hand had a bunch of teens (yes I look up my bidders on Facebook) begging me to lower the price to as little as 25 cents each and/or cover the shipping fees. Obviously I ignored those bids and ended up selling everything at a decent price to those who were old enough to drink.

>tl:dr; youngsters have no idea on the value of things and can't even comprehend how I would be losing money by covering a €7 shipping fee on a €4 sale.
>>
>>9334042
It's a guy in a suit with a badly tied tie, how is this even a cosplay?
>>
>>9334139
By wearing a wig of course! /s
>>
>>9334160
Ah, ofcourse I must've forgotten. Thank God I can keep him divided from the 16000 other characters casually wearing suits and have the same basic blonde wig.

... And I bet they'll get mad when I don't recognize 'em either.
>>
>>9334139
>>9334160
>>9334164
I prefer these than hundreds of picture hungry harley quins, deadpools and d.vas.
>>
>>9334170
Well, anything is better than that. Really me ripping on them is rather out of just wanting to rip on something. In the end I just like to be a grumpy fucker on a Malaysian Airplane finding picture board.
>>
>>9334164
Just compliment him on his cosplay of [other character who shares his physical traits here] every time you walk by. You're bound to get it right eventually! /jk

>>9334170
Agreed, especially with most Harleys and Deadpools being some of the most obnoxious people I've ever met. Plus let's not forget that the people who do basic/closet cosplays are genuinely having fun, and to me that's more important than the quality of a (non competition) cosplay.

>>9334128
Somewhat off-topic, but I am so glad I decided keep my old hardcover copy of the Serial Experiments Lain artbook. +€140 for a used copy, what the actual fuck?
>>
I kinda wanna go to Dynamicon but I'm also kinda in the middle of exams.
>>
>>9334050
I feel like you never get your stuff sold if it's over 50 euros for a costume, unless it's a popular character. Which kind of sucks if you have a costume that's not even used.
>>
>>9334187
Armor usually goes for a lot more but with cloth a lot of people feel like they should not pay more than ebay sales i guess, since most cloth cosplays can be found online. Even if it's a much higher quality.
>>
>>9334175
Have you ever gone to a cheap con or meetup? Those closet cosplayers are 9/10 times worse than harleys and deadpools, most of the time their parents don't give them money for cosplay and/or they are too young to afford spening money on it, so they do a closet cosplay and herpaderp around.
>>
>>9334187
If it's a selfmade cosplay I'm always iffy about it, like is it well made or only look good from a distance? I've had a few shit costumes that were made by cosplayers themselves.
>>
>>9334200
>>9334214
Yeah I was actually mainly talking about things that were originally bought from ebay/aliexpress/whatever and that are already sold for cheaper than the store prices already. Like if you bought something accidentally in the wrong size, or just decide you don't plan to use it anymore, you're basically have to be prepared you're not seeing most of your money back from that failed investment.
>>
>>9334212
Nah, I can't help but smile when I see those people derping around. They remind of myself 10 years ago and how easy it was for me to have fun at even the shittiest get-togethers. Inviting people over, staying up all night and drinking shit sake bought at the toko after the parents had gone to bed, hooking up our external hard drives to share series because we all had shitty ADSL lines, that glorious feeling of anticipation when you go to a con. Good times...
Or rather good times for the first 15 minutes, after that they become nothing but white noise to me.
>>
Anyone else has those days where they plan to do a lot of cosplay work but when the day is there you're so lazy and tired and end up not doing jack shit?
>>
>>9334750
Almost every day
>>
>>9334754
heh. I'm going to try and push myself regardless... even if it's some minor...oh nevermind. WoW & Netflix it is.

>>9334750
Yes, and then I feel even worse for wasting a day doing nothing.
>>
>>9334759
I know..that's how I feel now. I kinda want to do something... anything... but I can't really do anything at the moment, well I can but I don't want to bring out everything. Maybe I can cut fabric...that's not too hard.
>>
>>9334175
I have so much regret that I chose a Harley cosplay. I saw the other Harley cosplayers for the first time some time ago, and NEVER AGAIN.
>>
>>9334776
It's a tripple edged sword to me: If I give in and do nothing I'll feel bad. If I try to do something and fail or don't meet my standards I'll feel worse. If I try to do something and succeed I might feel better.
But het, at least I have my "good days" where I make up for all my lost time. Plus I'm almost ready for painting which is fun!
>>
>>9334785
Ooooh I love painting. It's when things come together! I need to coat more stuff in latex and properly coat them, then start painting. I have all the paints I need...almost. I ended up cutting fabric for the leggings anyway.
>>
>>9334778
I'm still going to cosplay as harley someday, but I want to wear a less common outfit.
>>
>>9334837
My thoughts exactly! I meant right now everything just looks a mix of different colours of foam. It isn't until I get the base coat on that I actually start seeing the final product appear in my head.
But yeah, depression sucks about as much as the only meds that work also bringing you unacceptable beside effects.
>>
>>9334872
Like what? Most anti depressants only tend to give me apathy. Which in all due respect is not such a bad side effect considering the other side of the spectrum.
>>
>>9334778
Why never again?
>>
>>9334859
Almost all of them have been done already. Even the fanart ones.
>>
>>9334859
Lol. Harley quinn is such an overrated character. Are there even any good harley cosplayers out there?
>>
>>9334890
The real question is does it matter? I cosplay for fun not to become popular or the very best no one ever was.
>>
>>9334887
Anti depressants triggered apathy, excessive weight gain, strong suicidal thoughts and impotency on me. I quit them cold turkey (not a smart move I might add, but keep in mind I was 17 at the time) and relied on my therapy only which went great for a while. Then things got worse, I got diagnosed with bipolar II and I got to play with mood stabilisers which were far worse on me. Well, except lithium, that stuff is acceptable despite the tremors and my short term memory being broken.
>>
>>9334914
Isn't apathy one of the main symptoms of depression anyway? What is this supposed to cure?
>>
Aninecon just anounced that the WCS would return to the con.
Best move ever. Firstlook was just butchering the whole thing.
>>
>>9334916
The constant feeling of being down obviously. But in my case it just made me feel empty. No pain, no joy, nothing and I'd rather be dead than going through life feeling nothing at all.
As for mood stabilisers, they are supposed to balance you out a bit so you don't go full depressed, manic, or end up in a dangerous mixed state. But luckily I know my limits so I don't really go mad anymore.
>>
>>9334924
I agree. Firstlook was a mess
>>
>>9334932
If Animecon wants someone else to handle the WCS they could branch out to other venue's there is more than just Abunai besides Animecon /notomo
>>
>>9334943
I don't understand your point could you elaborate pls.
>>
>>9334943
Not yaycon #nohomo
>>
>>9334890
Other than what >>9334913 mentioned, and implying you mean the ones with all the right details: yes there are. Seek and you'll find them.
>>
>>9334947
Animecon could drop a line to duhevents, the company. I am pretty sure they would be in for it.
>>
>>9335016
Aren't those the same guys that run PartyNL and Campzone?
>>
>>9334943
So you missed the notion WCS was at firstlook first? Which is different from Abunai.
>>
>>9335021
True, which Firstlook absolutely butchered :) I reckon Animecon wants another venue to spread out the events. That they don't have a monopoly on all cosplay events that ''matter''
>>
>>9335091
Wich cosplay events?
>>
>>9335100
>CWM
>ECG
>WCS
>Yamato
>CICAF
>BorderCos
>probably more that I'm forgetting.
Not sure if you're serious or joking..
>>
>>9335138
Let met rephrase the question, wich events that Animecon don´t have but do matter?
>>
>>9335143
Ah. No idea.
>>
>>9335019
ye

Would be nice if there wasnt such a labyrinth of contests at animecon and nothing anywhere/anytime else. I feel like i should plan ahead for a year to be able to do anything significant at animecon, and i'm not a person for planning.
>>
>>9335143
TomoTaste!
>>
>>9335138
I think this is 99% because of their chair person. I mean if any other event had the connections they could do the prelims. So is it a qudstion of animecon taking all the events or other events not trying/careing?
>>
>>9335154
Sorry to break it for you anon, but if cannot dedicate that far, you should not try for the big prizes since you have to work on the finals afterwards.

>>9335196
I think it is more than that. You must be able to organise it as well. Having participated in a few competitions in NL, there is a clear difference between what their stage manager does and other conventions. If anyone deserves props it is her.
>>
>>9334943
But who? Have you see any event that handles their cosplay contest seriously? Firstlook with WCS was a mess. Abunai is already not to great for years and the other conventions can't even create a half decent show.
I think that as long as a convention does not have a good cosplay competition running without big prizes it should not be the stage for a prelims.
>>
>>9335143
Well... Eurocosplay prelim is at Abunai only this year so that's something.
I just wonder for how long. Abunai had the C4 prelim for one year before it was moved to Firstlook so it probably didn't work out too great.
>>
>>9335530
It may not surprise you, but I have little faith in Abunai's cosplay contests.
>>
>>9335530
That is because of the rules of eurocos. Next year it will be Animecon again.
>>
So how's DynamicCon and is it worth a last minute visite?
>>
>>9335744
No by god this location is crap
>>
>>9335219
But what does she or they or whatever do different? I've never competed but maybe want to. Every con has a competition, not sure what to look for.
>>
>>9335791
Karlijn and her team work their asses off for their cosplayers.
They help and give tips. And backstage its 100% good energy and helpfullness.
Also the tech guys are there to help, they gave me good advice on my light plan and they realy worked their asses off to make the show look amazing.
What they do what many conventions dont do is work with you to make your show amazing. And help you to get better.
Abunai and many other cons do cosplay compos because its expected and not because they care.
>>
>>9335789
Really, was is that bad?
>>
>>9335789
The Dynamo is way too small for a con like this. I don't get why they chose Dynamo. Like right next to Eindhoven station is het beursgebouw which would be way better
>>
>>9336003
Probably because they didn't expect that many people. Dynamo is basically a youth-centre. Had it been a 'big' con which didn't have it's first time, Beursgebouw would've been more logical, for I doubt it's a cheap location.
>>
>>9335946
They at least capped visitors so while it was busy with 500, not /too busy/(unlike 99% by everyone's favorite con organizer). I liked it for the few fun conversations I've had.
>>
I really liked Dynamiccon. I competed in the competition and it was nicely organised for a first time.
No food though, except the sandwiches at the maid cafe (they where pretty tasy but not really filling)
>>
>>9336052
I didn't mind the lack of food as the location was in the centre of Eindhoven and you could go in and out of the venue at any time. Happy italy was right next door and hema was on the other side of the street. As was a sushi and wok and a snackbar, so lots of choice.
>>
>>9336011
That's actually good to hear. I was afraid the place would end up too crowded and judging by the cap I guess it's a good thing I decided to get get off my train early to check things out.

>>9336052
More good news, sounds like a second edition might be worth checking out depending on the events they have next time.
>>
Dynamicon expected about 5 tot 10 people to show up for the pokemon shoot (which already started an hour later than announced on the program AND the website), so they hosted it in one of the already cramped basement rooms. About 50 people actually showed up in poke cosplay for the shoot, and the organisation loudly vocalized that. The entire shoot was moved outside because of that. Most of the shoot ended up being about Pretzel and Kinpatsu, but there were some nice group shots taken.
The room they picked was horrible for a shoot in the first place, because the lighting in the room was terrible.
I'll give the organisation the benefit of the doubt because this was the first edition, but I don't think I'll go next year. The location really isn't great.

>>9336052
The professional cosplayers were really good! The amateurs had some highlights too, and I still have no idea what that last category was supposed to be.
>>
>>9336066
I wouldn't really feel comfortable walking through the city in cosplay.

>>933609
Last category was bought cosplays.
>>
Talking about first-time cons...Worthing gets a comic con (where I live).. I wonder if it will be any better than Dynamiccon. I don't know anything about the organisation and the cosplay contest is 'register-on-the-day' I may just waltz in with Cordana. Oh and tickets are a blistering....

£8.

>>9336897
I'm not very fond of comic cons. It's usually just a large dealer room with some actors which you have to pay to take a photo. Even trash like tomofair has more workshops!

I totally missed the prize show, who won ?

€9,50 for a comic con? Yeah in okay with that. Now go win that competition and make me proud!

>>9336907
Same here, but at least last DCC had some workshops. It's a shame though a lot of the stands were selling the same trash. At some point it almost was as if I got stuck in a loop of the same 4 stands.

It is funny how all the shabbier quality costumes are in the front blocking all the somewhat more intrinsic costumes in the background.

Mind telling me in which bush in Oss you are hiding? I've just set a fresh pot of coffee and figured you might want some.
>>
>>9337048
They told the taller people to stand in the back and the whole photoshoot was a disorganised mess anyway. I'm pretty sure most of the people with impressive costumes got photoshoots on their own afterwards anyway so eh.

this picture is plagiarism, I rewatched their only known battle from season 1 (ep 5) and there's no shot with that position, also Yata, (the one with the skateboard) wasn't fighting Fushimi, (the one with the sword) with his bat. also, it's fine to use references and examples, but this... not really my cup of tea.

The location of the con was pretty small. But at least the athmosphere was great and the people wellspread accross the building. Also the bars and free cotton candy were really nice.

regardless if plagarism it's very interesting to see these pictures right next to each other.
I would have said the picture below is decent but comparing it to the other one shows it really lacks the dynamic composition of the framing. It looses a lot of energy.

So here, Ladies and Gentleman, you can see the difference between a good photographer and just some person, who claims to be one. If you want to copy something at least have the skill to make it worth it.

Whatever. It was Sunday and carnaval season is on right now so nobody bothered the cosplayers.
>>
>>9337395
Carnaval season isn't until late february. Unless you count 11-11, cosplayers will get bothered as it is not carnaval yet.
>>
>>9337404
Brabander or Limburger detected. Awesome. But yes, 11-11 is the only 'other' celebration that's done in costume. From that moment on, it's all planning and preparation for the actual carnaval.
>>
>>9337427
Or one of those from the north who celebrate what they believe is carnaval, you never know.
>>
>>9337445
As someone from Noord-Holland: never ever saw any event related to carnaval here or people that seemed to celebrate it. The only reason I happen to know it's around February is because a long long time ago, when I bought some cosplay stuff at the Albert Cuyp, people actually thought I was buying it for carnaval lol.
>>
>>9337551
I grew up in Amsterdam (Oud-West) and there used to be carnavalsoptochten in the past. I believe I still have some pictures from me and my sister visiting one somewhere 1995~ish. There's also an active carnavalsvereniging in Osdorp, although they stopped doing parades as they are the only carnavalsvereniging left in the area now.
I miss living a city where you could easily avoid carnaval...
>>
>>9337551
>>9337607
Some elementary schools in Amsterdam also "celebrate" carnival by letting kids dress up at school and do one of the danses? (my memory is kinda clowed about that time).

Carnival does exist above the Rhine, but you've to seek it. Which is a blessing and a curse on it's own. Blessing because the Randstad is already crowded enough. Curse because party stores are crap here (thank god for Backstage) and Brabantse party stores sale next to the usual crap, good petticoats, costumes, wigs and schmink.
>>
>>9337404
You might get a few stares as usual, but the worst you can get is someone shouting "It isnt carnaval yet!"
It was in the middle of Eindhoven and I did not see anyone get bothered by non-cosplayers.
>>
>>9337974
It actually made me strangely sad to not be able to be in my hometown in cosplay. Sometimes, I definitely miss it. And my friends & family of course.
>>
>>9337990
You could always come back for Abunai as well.
>>
>>9337551
>>9337665
Utrechter here, for us carnaval is really only something for elementary school kids and college students looking for an excuse to get shitfaced. Compared to Brabant and Limburg it's practically nonexistent. Funnily enough yelling "It's not carnaval!" at lolitas (and probably stray cosplayers) on the streets is ubiquitous, no matter if you're in the north or in the south. It unites us!
>>
>>9337665
Not the two I've been to, the strangest things we had was pyjama day in groep 3 and some cultural appreciation day on the second school where we got the girls to dress up in hoola skirts.
>>
>>9338113
It's not worth the effort. I'd rather spend a week at home and meet my friends without having to pay for a con that I don't really enjoy that much.

Anyone got some pictures from Dynamiccon to share?

>>9337551
Wut? I used to live in a little town in noord holland and carnaval was the 'dress up and get shitfaced' event of the year. We had an entire team of prince carnavals, their own cheerleading squad that would visit schools (basisschool tho) and every kid dressed up to school, we even had parades if the budget allowed it.
>>
>>9338325
I'm going through the event pages right now. Kinda annoying that DynamicCon didn't post the winners (or any of the contestants) of the CC anywhere, let alone a list with pictures. Then again the same can be said of most competitions out there.

Is having a sugar daddy a thing in the Netherlands, or is it more of an American thing? I'm moving there next semester and I've been fantasising about having an older man buy me stuff for ages. I don't know where I would find a wealthy, weeby/geeky guy tough. And I don't want the Dutch lolita or gyaru comm to find out and expose me on btb or something which could impact my future career.

Does this mean the idea of having a Dutch sugar daddy is so unusual it makes you think it's bait, or is it just really hard for you to understand some poeple don't want a traditional relationship?

I don't know what to say to make you believe I'm serious so..can someone please just answer my question or kindly point me in the direction of a better place to ask?

I'd say try an escort service, or someplace else where they got next to no moral fibre.

If it wasn't clear this is actually something that turns me on so I wouldn't be happy if I didn't have to "spread my legs" nor would I be happy to do it with a stranger (escorting) hence common interests are important. These replies are helpful tough, you reminded me prostitution is legal in the Netherlands and I might actually get closer to what I want if I contact a service like that. So thank you.

Find older nerd at convention, sleep with him let him make you his waifu > profit.
Most older single guys at conventions like younger girls, just dont be too much of a weaboo and try to have some smart convo.
>>
>>9339298
I'm not going to tell you how to live your life, but this is definitely not considered a normal thing to do here. There are people who have a sugar daddy or a relationship with an older person but that's typically met with skeptism (ie she's only in it for the money) and looked down upon.
You can definitely find someone into this stuff here, but do realise the Dutch community (con, lolita and also the neighbourhood you live in) are relatively small and news travels fast.
With that being said, there is an active kink community in the Netherlands complete with (closed) parties, meets and fairs. Odds are you'll have a better chance finding what you are looking for on Fetlife.

>>9339350
Hot as it might sound to you to become a perverted fucktoy by night and letting strangers have their way with you in a playful, yet forceful way, maybe with some orgasm denial thrown in there and pushing your boundaries ever so slightly every time to further corrupt your already deviant mind, do realise a fantasy does not always play out as you may have imagined it.

>>
>>9339367
This is the truth though. Even when I had a serious relationship with a man much older than me, people thought I was having a sugardaddy, except he had almost no money at all.

Don't expect people to be very open to it desu. As this anon says, you're probably more successful in the kink & fetish communities.
>>
Thanks for all the helpful replies. I didn't mean to bother the people in this thread and I hope I didn't derail it too much, I just came here because I hope to find someone who is also into anime/vidya/jfashion. I will try my best to keep it a secret from the Dutch lolita and gyaru comm.

>>9339388
Plot twist: I said that to hide my identity, I'm actually from Australia.
>>
>>9339388
Seriously, Google gives more hits with 'the Netherlands sugardaddy' than this community, who she also doesn't want to know about her kinks, can give.
I really hope it's bait, because as soon as a new foreigner joins any comm, we know it's her.

But if not, go look into the kink community. You clearly aren't smart enough to compete with dutch escorts, and would only end up in hands of bad pimps.

Or is THAT just something to hide your identity, as you noticed you fucked up and quickly try to fix it.

Did a quick paint test. I'm not satisfied with the glossiness, but I do like the colours. But now the pearlescent effect doesn't come through, so I'm going back to black and go old-skool with original acrylics. If anyone wants to know; this was done with FW Acrylic inks

Bag got stolen at Dynamo Con. Picture of the thief, now what?
>>
>>9339858
Go to the police
>>
>>9339858
I second >>9339859
>>
>>9339858
post picture here ofc
>>
>>9339858
Well you could cross-reference the picture of the thief with the FB list of people who went to DynamicCon. That way you could probably find a name after which contacting him (or finding his address after a few calls) should be easy. Odds are he'll get scared and claims he took it by accident and offers you to give it back, case closed. Alternatively you could just post the picture here and on several Facebook groups stating this person stole/took your bag and that you would like it back. Knowing our community a name and number is bound to show up sooner or later.

Or do what >>9339859 said, report it to the police. They probably won't bother doing anything with such a petty crime but at least you tried. Plus if anything in your bag was insured this is pretty much mandatory in order to get anything from the insurance company. Theft reports can be made in person after making an appointment (up to 2 weeks waiting time) or online at https://www.politie.nl/aangifte-of-melding-doen/aangifte-van-overige-diefstal.html Personally I would go with reporting online, my local station had coffee so bad I almost filed a second report for police brutality.

The guy wasn't an attender of the con, he was a passerby at the photoshoot in front of the Catharinakerk. I've seen the full pic. 4 people watching, and no one seems to notice it.

I just paint by hand mostly.

>pic related
The first few parts are painted. This is pre-pearlescent airbrushing and clearcoating. This is a much better paintscheme and more accurate too. The previous one was too purple when I looked at the reference. The reason why the lower shoulderbells aren't entirely painted and coates is because they need to be glued back in place on the shoulders.
>>
>>9341061
I do my base coats with spray paint and then dry brush over it to add the finishing touches. Something with me lacking patience and getting brush marks everywhere unless I'm dry brushing.
And I agree, I have no idea what colours they should be but it definitely looks better to me.

I doubt they would. Maybe they just randomly selected your package for inspection? That happens to me several times a year with orders from China and the US and usually takes a day or two to clear.

Nope, but if it's an US seller with DHL shipping or the like, it might be that reason.

I was hoping no one would mention it here though.
Oh and you're supposed to post in English.

Also we already know he is a shitty person, there's no need to feed him any more attention on which he craves.

Not for or against Pedro. But I'm glad your post will be deteled soon because it is in Dutch.

>>9342103
The one time I use sarcasm it isn't obvious enough.
>>
>>9342103
The sad part is that other men will definitely shame him, maybe not in the cosplay community, but definitely outside.
Remember those fake muscle T-shirts? The comment sections on social media are full of men calling other men weak, sissies, pathetic etc. for even thinking about wearing one.

>>9342235
Honestly I'm not surprised. It sounded like an overly ambitious plan with high costs for the both the organisation and the visitors. I mean a €60 entree fee plus rent for a bungalow is no small change, especially with it being during a "busy" period with Abunai, ACC and Elfia taking place one after another and (for those who haven't graduated) the start of a new school year.
But at least they cancelled it early on instead of going the Terracon route, so kudos to them and let's see what they can do in 2018.

Oh boy people I don't know, whining about other people I don't know, about a topic I don't care about.

body shaming has sadly been a huge problem in the cosplay community, I can remember the days it didn't really matter what you wore or what you did, but as cosplay is getting more competitive and competitive, the expectations become more and more. Even from people who never cosplayed themselves, it's a shame people need to tear each other down in such a vile way. Honestly, sometimes I feel like you'll be quicker to be judged in the community or at a convention than actually outside of it.
>>
>>9342296
Maybe you should try actually talking to someone instead of making threats.

I have tried and I did, I send M. snapchats before I snatched out at her, she ignored me and kept going on talking shit about me. Then I made that video, which I admit wasn't the right way either, but ay. She finally talked to me, I called her the knight someone PM'ed her the video and we talked shit out. Problem solved.

I don't recall threatening people tho, tho I do admit I come off as intimidating now and then, but I guess that my Brazilian temperament. Talk shit get shit

Am I the only one who thinks it's really vile to pick on someone this way just because she has opposing political views?

I own push up bras, underwear with booty padding, corsets and shapewear, there is no shame in trying to look like a character as much as you can. It just isn't that comfortable, but most cosplays aren't
>>
>>9342201
Have you seen the guy? The guy himself isn't scrawny. The suit is pretty big, if he would ever want to look like that he would need to roid up for at least 4 years.
>>
>>9342296
You need drama, don't lie to us. I'm not hating just saying.
>>
>>9342314
I'm not going to walk up to a smoker saying how disgusting they are, how they are going to die a horrible death, so why do people feel the need to talk shit about fat people? They pay their own health insurance and guess what, they also have jobs. I don't like looking at saggy asses sticking out from school girl skirts (animecon) but I'll just look somewhere else.

>>9342332
Pedro and friends have had beef with her for a while now. Every now and then shit gets posted here followed by a lot of people (read: samefagging) supporting him. I don't know the full story although I am interested in hearing it as with all personal vendetta's. Call me crazy but it always intrigues me whenever someone actively holds a grudge for so long.
>>
>>9342351
No, I think the same. As much as I don’t like it Trump, shaming people this way is partly the reason closet PVV'ers exist and grow in numbers.

On the otherside. I also get people picking on her, she has some truly untactfull posts lately, that look like attention seeking posts.
>>
>>9342373
Because a smoker won't walk up to me saying how healthy it is he smokes, and that I can't just judge his lungs health by the cancer mutating inside it.

It's because smokers are being shamed (can't do it indoors anymore, "roken kan echt niet meer", etc. etc.) but we can't say it so some fatty's face?
Call me old fashioned but I don't get any of this PC shit, and I guess I'm a backwards hick for doing so. But as an ex-fatty: you only stop when you're told when you're doing something bad.
>>
>>9342378
Could care less about politics, she's just annoying which makes her an easy target.
>>
>>9342380
Only tumblrinas do the whole fat acceptance thing. Eating itself isn't damaging like smoking is, but the type of food/amount of it is. When I was younger and somebody called me fat I'd go home and comfort myself with food, so it doesn't work motivational on everyone.
>>
>>9342385
Because it's so hard to block/unfriend/ignore someone you don't like right? Her being annoying doesn't justify digging up a years old sextape to haunt her forever.
Pedro is annoying, does that mean we'll have to keep spamming his facebook with the animecon video?
>>
>>9342391
To answer the first question, yes it is. As for the second one, what gets on the internet stays on the internet. So all fair game.
>>
>>9342393
Just grow up like the rest of us Pedro
>>
>>9342389
I do like how this went from one guy cutting foam into shapes and taping it onto his body to full on tumblr
>>
>>9342389
I hear you mate, I went home and ate too. Though at some point I picked up that "Hey, if I eat more when people tell me not to, I'm doing something wrong!" And y'know, added up 1 and 1, and stopped eating.

If I had never been told not to eat that much forcefully by society, I'd still be a fat fuck and hate myself for it. I'm glad I'm sporty now, heck I fucking love my life. And I'm damn good at it too.
>>
>>9342397
You are still a fat f*ck. go exercise you lardass

>>9342396
that foam stuff is more interesting than this standard tumblr bashing desu

You're not any better than him by doing this.

>>9342235
I feel bad for the organization, that sucks. The concept was so nice though.

>>9342259
OK I gotta admit that was a good pun! But come on man, stop linking her porn vid. No need to go that far. You can easily crush her arguments with counter arguments. If you really like Beyonce so much then listen to her quote "Always stay gracious, the best revenge is your paper". OK in this case, it's more like, the best comeback is your wit, lol.

that last part was actually some good advice, thanks anon!

>They pay their own health insurance
This is the Dutch thread. We are all paying for the bad health of our people.
>>
>>9342481
But you still pay for your own health insurance..
>>
>>9342489
I pay for it after I get zorgtoeslag
>>
>>9342481
Except smokers don't cost us anything and are instead a prime source of incomes. There have been several studies on this done by the RIVM, Rekenkamer, Tabak Nee and news papers and they all came to this conclusion. Basically the money spend on treatments, sick days and such are only a fraction of what's being raised by taxes and saved on having to pay fewer years of AOW as they typically die a lot sooner.

Polite sage for off-topic.
>>
>>9342504
I thought we were talking about fat people. I apologize.
>>
>>9342512
Wait, you're right. The whole "you don't walk up to a smoker" probably got me mixing things up. Now I wonder how much I am costing everyone with my TGIF glass of scotch.
>>
>>9342512
No we were talking about board related stuff until you guys had to spam this thread with drama and tumblr bs.

>But you still pay for your own health insurance.

Ever noticed that you pay for maternity care. Regardless of gender.
>>
>>9342549
Still I'd rather pay for general national healthcare than have your own individual insurance like in the US. That shit bankrupts people. Here in the UK I've got free healthcare but I wonder for how long.

Is it okay if I ask for anime recs here? I haven't watched any in over 5 years and I feel like everything's gone to shit. Now I just want to re-watch Elfen Lied. What's popular in the Dutchlands nowadays?

>>9342549
I don't mind that because generally kids grow up and start making money
>>
>>9342450
Wonder how its going to look when its all done. Most of his suit will be under clothing or costume parts. Looks like a whole lot of wasted effort.
>>
>>9342636
Depends on the character i guess. Also you can re-use this suit for a whole lot of different costumes, in which some are quite easy and the suit will be well-shown. Think goku, streetfighter, hercules etc, but also useful for bulky warriors like varian wrynn/ other world of warcraft.
Definitely thinking of making one myself aswell.
>>
>>9342598
>Elfen Lied
Nah, go watch Ninin Ga Shinobuden instead. It's a light hearted 12 episode comedy about a lesbian ninja who has to steal underwear because her perverted master who is totally a hawk said so, and that's just episode 1. I have to say out of shows out there I am glad that was the first I've watched. Well, not counting the typical Pokémon, DBZ and such.

>>9342641
>Goku
Why cosplay a cheater who relies on cheap magic tricks when you can cosplay the world champion himself? He defeated Cell, he defeated Majin Buy, he is the one true defender of Earth!
>>
>>9342645
>haven't watched any in over 5 years
>What's popular in the Dutchlands nowadays?
>Ninin Ga Shinobuden
That show is over 10 years old
>>
>>9342649
Fine, go watch Excel Saga instead.
>>
So I took a look at Yaycon for the first time because some friends are going and... rather than an anime convention, isn't this just a social justice convention?

>Beyond Stereotypes: Ethnicity in Pop-culture
>Let’s Talk about Asexuality

What? These aren't even remotely related to anything. Suffice to say I'm not going, and I'm sure my right wing ass wouldn't be wanted there anyway.

Getting pretty close to bingo gulls
>>
>>9342654
>Excel Saga
Not that anon, but the last time I watched those episodes was way back between 2002-2004. I feel old now (despite being a 90s kid).
>>
>>9342706
>Someone actually saved my bingo chart
Great, now I wished I actually aligned everything properly before posting it. Come to think of it I should probably also replace "Tea!" with "Lolita Hate" or something. Expect a fixed version somewhere next thread.

Also technically I feel like >>9339471 (Harley) and especially >>9339477 (Harry Potter 2.0) would fit the cosplay hype of the season. So, bingo?

My first time watching it was in 2005 and along with Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei it still remains one of my favourite comedies up to this day. I can highly recommend watching the 2 episode Puni Puni Poemy OVA if you haven't seen it yet, it's pretty much two more episodes in the style of episode 26 "Going Too Far" which was banned from broadcast for, you guessed it, going too far.

And now I want to buy the official Menchi table grill, great.
>>
>>9342706
So when do you cross the tomo one? just by being to one of ourt events?
>>
>>9342784
>Puni Puni Poemy
Oh snap, I remember that one now! I think I've seen a bit that one too, but it's all too long ago. Maybe I should just watch everything in my free time to refresh my memory.

And lol, well if you find it, you should!
>>
>>9342553
>Back ontopic; a video of the LED strips inside the shoulders

What kind of led strips do you use? The 5V variant and then using an usb powerbank to power them? Currently i'm still on resoldering xmas lights mostly.
>>
>>9342706
>cosplay hype of the season.

Well, I guess there has something been bothering me. Fantastic Beast hasn't been out for to long, jet the Newt on >>9339477 all ready calls himself the official Dutch Newt, wants to visit sick childern and looks nothing like Newt. Is it so hard to atleast get a wig in the right colour?

He's probably a nice guy, but don't call yourself the official one when you look like everyone's dad with a bought coat and scarf.

Sage for rant.
>>
>>9343131
What grinds my gears more is that people who claim to be the official X cosplayer don't seem to know what the word official means to begin with. But hey, I guess calling yourself "the original Dutch X cosplayer" doesn't have the same ring to it.
>>
>>9343103
Leave it to Tomo to not know how a bingo card works...
>>
>>9343106
IIRC Prop-Anon is using a green 12 volt LED strip. Personally I went with loose 3.2 volt white and 2.1 volt orange LED'S, calculated the correct resistor values and wired everything together myself for use with a USB powerbank (5.2 volt measured output). I still need to add a potentiometer so I can adjust the brightness on the spot. As it stands they are a bit too bright for indoor use but just right to be visible in full sun light.
>>
>>9343165
Cool, thanks. Currently also wiring loose orange and yellow leds, but i'm using regular battery packs to power them.
>>
>>9343169
I've considered using batteries myself, but that would mean swapping the batteries several times where my main powerbank holds enough juice for 16~18 hours with the LEDs and fan turned on. But in the end it doesn't really matter as long as it works for you.
>>
>>9343131
That guy considers himself "official"? He looks nothing like the character...
>>
>>9343142
you know who is going to blame for that...
>>
>>9343165
>IIRC Prop-Anon is using a green 12 volt LED strip.

Correct. 12V DC. I'll solder things with 'detachable' connections so I can take my costume apart easily. Like they do for RC planes/cars.

>>9343169
I powered my 12V led strips for Smaug with 10AA batteries and they held up for about a day. This meant switching them out on sunday morning, but they add a load of weight. For loose orange/yellow LED's you don't need 10AA batteries, so you might get away with it. I did that with the Gundam (3AA batteries in the head, 2AA in the chest).

The lovely bit about the powerbank is that you can just shut it off when you don't need it. Lovely.
>>
>>9343131
hihi I wouldn't even let the guy come close to my children. He looks like a creeper.
>>
>>9343141
Oh yes. Those this is my char so you cant cosplay them people.
ALMOST as anoying as OC people.
No this is not a badly nade Naruto , this is my OC who is 1000×better than him.

>>9343169
Battery life in hours = mAh rating of battery / consumption in mA * 0.7

Just don't add the mAh rating off all batteries together when you run them in series as that only raises the voltage. As for the 0.7, that's there to give you a "worst case scenario" as external factors (heat, wear on rechargable cells, old regular batteries etc) will lower the actual time you'll get. It's best to have too many spare batteries than too little am I right?
