>>10135259
I don't think back's an option. It's already in two parts, and I don't think it'd be a good idea to cut it into another part (and the seams have to be on the sides to fit in pockets, unless I wanted to cut holes in the fabric which I don't).

Sounds like left is the standard anyway, so that'll be fine.

Looking to make a watch prop, EVA foam is too complicated for me to work with since it's a small prop and I don't have the perfect tools for it. Has anyone used sculpey to form and bake it? I'm making the 999 bracelet for reference.

I'm going to a con by myself for the first time this weekend and i'm gonna take advantage of being on my own to spend some time at the yaoi centric panels. What should I expect? How crazy do fujos get when you put them in a room together?

>how crazy do fujos get
>how wet is water
Just kidding. Depends on the turn out. Generally I’d say the older the attendees/panelist the more bearable the panel is.
>>
>>10135164
The only one I've been to was a late-night yaoi history/quiz panel at A-kon. It was pretty tame other than the crowd going "wooooOOOOOoo" whenever anything particularly saucy was said. A fun atmosphere, though the tameness might be because it was talking more about older stuff and not the current hotness.

Togs, has this ever happened to you?

I've been shooting cosplay for a few years now and enjoyed a decent amount of success. The vast majority of the time I'll plan a shoot with a cosplayer and after a few weeks we'll do it without any problems. But probably about a 3rd of the time, I'll meet a cosplayer at a con and they're really excited for a shoot, talk to them online and they're still really excited for a shoot. We'll decide on the outfit, themes, shots, even set dates to meet.

And then they'll just vanish. Completely, without a trace. All my messages will be on not seen and I'll never hear from them every again.

It's just so weird that they'd go 90% of the way to organising a shoot and then just (presumably) give up on it.

Any similar experiences?

I generally shoot with women, they tend to be more reliable than guys.

Can I get recommendations for photogs who like to incorporate scenery into their shots instead of studio-esque portraits?

I think OP is referring to SwampCon and the fact that the winners of the cosplay competition had mostly Amazon bought cosplays.

That's what the drama and FB seemed to be like a week ago.
>>
>>10133624
That contest was a total shit fest. 2 of those judges aren't even crafters. I have no idea who on their team thought they were a good idea. Does Swampcon even have any cosplayers in their staff? Apparently North FL is infamous for its rigged cosplay contests which would make sense since those judges also judge other cons in that area
>>
>>10134001
I think there's evidence of one of those judges entering an entirely commissioned cosplay into a craftsmanship contest too
>>
>>10134663
oof the more these judges are brought the more dirt i hear about them swampcon's reputation is going down the shitter not that they had much of a rep to begin with
>>
I agree expect for this swamp con drama, the drama seems to be dying down.

got a room connected to the con. just me and my buddy so we are planning on having a room party, or even just socializing. Bring booze. We will too.

But anyway I'm going as Terra from KH, even if he did only have a 30 second cameo in 3. Havent been to AB in a few years. Last time we had to take subways too and from the con, which was a nightmare. Now I just cross the skybridge and we are good. Worth the money.

Crossin the sky bridge so you're over in the Marriott? That's a good hotel to be in since the Sheraton is always elevator hell. Let people know where to meet up to head over when its con time.

Yea, stayed there one time before and it was great. Everything's within walking distance too. We are staying Friday night and Saturday night, so I'll figure it out once it gets closer. Also down for some drunk karaoke too like someone mentioned, hope that pans out.

What's your dream obscure cosplay? I personally would like to do something from Phantasy Star IV, probably Rune/Thray.

Oldschool cosplay dreams especially appreciated here.

Well, you can tell a con is dead in the water when /cgl/ doesn't even want to talk about you anymore.

But I am curious if anyone was at closing ceremonies, too. I guess, (from a now nuked thread, surprise surprise), staff said some very racist/homophobic things? Like enough that a few people actually noticed? Ugh, to be a fly on the wall for this shit show must have been entertaining.
>>

I was at closing ceremonies, it was unremarkable. Nothing juicy was said, no announcements were made regarding the future.

Wait, can you explain this further? I'm really confused. I'm going to AFest for the first time this year. I don't really have a problem with kids at cons (hell, we all did cringey shit when we were teens). Is there something specific about AFest?

Half thr staff of AD dropped because the con heads wouldn't answer anyone's questions. A friend of mine volunteered and just vented about it for hours so here's the dirt I remember.

They didn't really feed the staff. They had a day where they just bought pizza and you were lucky if you got 2 slices. The chairs kept saying "be patient, we will have info" until a few days before the convention. They weren't clear about crash space or staff attire (which is why a lot of them just wore normie clothes, they were told they weren't allowed to cosplay but then told they could the night before). The heads didn't have an in person meeting for even their higher staffers until Thursday, so a lot of people dropped out. You can't run a con without making your programming and security guy (same person) not know the venue until the day before.
So they were short staffed because they didn't want to listen to anyone with con experience and all of those people quit. And a few volunteers stayed to be nice and to see how it went.

One night (Saturday?) a lot of stuff was going wrong but John and Chuck ran off to have a VA dinner ans nobody could reach them, and they were mad their convention was having issues when they shouls have stayed to take care of stuff.

They picked random cosplay judges and only maybe 2 or 3 out of 6 had craft experience. The rules were on the website but not posted online until Friday because they forgot to link it. The sign ups were done on paper and you had a 2 or 3 hour window on Friday for prejudging because they had the contest on Saturday, if you only went on Saturday you couldn't sign up to compete.

Con only went okay because it was small and there weren't a lot of things that could go wrong. The venue was paid for, they had enough people to check badges, it was small so lines weren't awful, and a lot of people had their New Con blinders on. Only half the ones who stayed want to come back to help, and that's not a lot at all.
