Hey yall.

I'm trying to make a cosplay of a character that wears a helmet. I have the helmet (comprised of a face mask and a back piece that both come on separately and attach with velcro), but now I need a hat. Now, I can find the types of hats I need online, but the problem is, they are all sized for human sized heads. Not for HUGE FUCKING HELMETS.

Is there anything I can do to make a hat bigger in size without completely fucking it up shape/aesthetics wise? Or do I just need to start from scratch and make it somehow? I don't really have... ANY experience with this. I kinda thought if I just got the largest sized hat it would be able to fit over the top (the helmet isn't actually HUGE, and fits snugly around the head without much wiggle room, but still, relative to a human head, it's far bigger. It's a goddamn shell after all),

I have cash, but I don't really know where to start with this. Can anyone offer some help?

So that means we get that shitty AbunaiBeats again, with DJ Spotify and MC meatbag? They can't start a party, especially not as a main event on a Saturday.

Really, I'm glad that Deshima is at Animecon. It's the better con anyway. This proves once again compared to AbunaiBeats.

I just imagine grapevining acrylics, and having them scrape and rub against one another, causing the print to chip off. Bluhh.
I know plastic protectors exist but they really ruin the aesthetic imo. I find them bulky and ugly.

I agree. I used to have a full acrylic bag but the constant clacking made me too paranoid which is why I hang them on my pinboard instead. I do have a fanned out row of acrylics on the top half of my utapri bag, but I wouldn't call it a true grapevine as they're still a little spaced out.

Same. Her construction looks good (lopsidedness aside - which is one reason why we generally recommend against circle skirts) but those material choices are Dolldelight-tier. It's a shame.

>>10175319
That's the great thing about handmade imo, that you can learn to flatter your own body instead of squeezing into one-size-flatters-few burando.

one of my friends is staff for otakon and he likes to tell me shit because this place is always a cluster fuck. like there is virtually no organization and after the disaster that was the vegas con they are basically broke

now my friend sent me this link he snagged.l from their stfc chat site. apparently this bitch is being removed from her leadership job and she posted a response stating the board knows there are sex offenders on staff. when my friend went to check back on discussion it was taken down lmao

i am honestly so glad i stopped going. who knows if this is true but this is just such a train wreck. ive been betting when the last otakon would be. maybe it will be 2019 lmao

To bad your interpretation of the by-laws is wrong. And it's not likely the appeal will help her either. With a 41-3 vote. Everyone knows she lied, used corperation resources to harrass, and damaged the cons reputation. She is a shitty cunt and got everything coming to her. Now that she's gone otakon is a much better place. I bet her EX is kicking himself in the as for bringing her on staff and even dating her.

To add to what was said before the letter got there on time. Chrissie didn't go get the letter when she got the notice. I'm sure the board knows Chrissie will try to do anything at this point to push off and undermine the process for as long as she could. She knows she was in the wrong.

If you are wrong admit it and don't fight it. Give the person that is right the satisfaction of being right.

I'm sure she gets that reference.

Otakon Vegas really messed up the entire convention budget, though.

Vegas would have been axed several years ago, except there were long-term contracts would have made it even more expensive to quit early.

why are cons so hard to hook up at/get laid at/do someone pretty?

Why are all the pretty ones jailbait or taken and fucking some musclebound guy like living goku or whatever his name is?

why are weebs/otaku and such *the only subculture/subgroup* with a LOWER than average # of women proportionately?

Hey /cgl/, what are the largest cons to go to in US? A few comes to my mind:
- Anime Expo
- San Diego Comic Con
- Fanime
- Dragon Con
- New York Comic Con

Anything else I'm missing?

Where the hell are you getting that 70K number?
Otakon has been in the 25K - 30K range for the past several years, and they peaked at around 35K. Idk if that 70K was a typo or something, but they have zero chance of ever coming near that.
