I had a good suggestion to ask my question here. Is the flowing "outer skirt" that has the belt around it in pic related - does it have a name? Is it an actual piece of armor/garment? Or is it just an artistic creation?

oh, thank you!

So I missed out on the early 2000s cosplay/anime convention scene. I was old enough, just socially awkward, ugly, etc. But now I am 30 and looking halfway decent I want to get involved. Am I to old?

Start volunteering at cons, you'll find more mature people who are generally pretty social and chill. If you get along well with said people, ask their social medias and keep casually talking to them on twitter/insta etc. People under 18-20 are generally not worth talking to or hanging out with.

If you've taken good care of your skin and still look young-ish, you can cosplay younger characters too. There are plenty of 30-year old cosplayers who can pull off regular young-looking characters. Just don't do trashy makeup. If not, try to find more mature characters and you'll be fine.

>>10253608
There is no age limit to cosplay, you just need to pick characters that are appropriate to you. One of the most popular cosplayers getting photographed at my local con was an old grey man cosplaying Reinheart from Overwatch because he matched it perfectly.

>>10253608
Yes
>>
>>10254910
that sounds adorable actually, do you have any pictures?
>>
>>10253608
It sounds circular but the secret of not being awkward is.. not being awkward

Just get in there and make some friends. You might need more than one con to find your groove.

Got a dress you don't know the name of? Drop it here. Maybe the gulls can help.

Mine today is a thrift store find. Pretty stoked on it, but there's no tag. It's well made but I want to make sure it's not a replica of some print.

You go to your paypal profile and open up the invoice. As soon they pay the invoice you will be able to see the adress they left there. And that's the only adress that should matter during a transaction with paypal.

>I wish Baltimore would get its shit together so we could move back
Who ended up pushing Otakon out? The con or the center?
>>
>>10255600

The con pushed itself out because it simply outgrew the convention center as far as I know, we consumed the entirety of the BCC plus everything surrounding it! I think at some point there was an attendance cap because of it.

I was there when someone pulled the fire alarm. That evac was nuts.

I remember one year when the Thursday night pre reg line wrapped around the BCC 1 and a half times. Shit felt like half the con showed up that evening. It got so bad they had to turn people away after awhile. I was in line for two hours that year. This happened in 2014 I think

I wasn't there for that but I remember it, I don't wanna even think about being stuck in that!

I didn't go that year but I believe it, I went in 2012 and 2016 IIRC and just remember being entirely overwhelmed by it. Thank God they mitigated linecon with badge mailings!

I see pretty girls dating insanely ugly men all the time
Meanwhile fat incels will bash a woman for not looking like a pornstar

Most of the time this isn't true though, men just look less attractive than women a lot of the time unfortunately
>>
>>10255772
>Most of the time this isn't true though
Not anon you were quoting but more often than not I see ugly men dating hot women, from what I've personally seen it's true most of the time. Might be where someone lives that effects this too desu.
>>
>>10255782
No, what I'm saying is that societally and culturally speaking we view the average man as less attractive than the average woman.
So what you say may be true, I get that, but the reason is because most people, myself included, will view a 7/10 guy as less attractive than a 7/10 girl, so even if you view him as less attractive and uglier than her they're still matched. I get if you disagree with me, and I know that this isn't the rule at all, but by the same token it offers an explanation to this phenomenon.

>>10248075
>men are less picky at what they deem hot
but i'm a woman and i find the girl more attractive
honestly, women really are commonly more attractive than men, the amount of dudes that don't even have basic hygiene or think about how they present themselves is way too high compared to girls, even if you're not particulary picky about things like hair or even body type
