This year seemed a lot better for cosplay then last years ALA, maybe even better than AX 2018 so let's begin:

It's hard to meet people during the con unless you cosplay and go to gatherings really. You may also meet people while hanging out if they're in a costume from the same series or something but that's really the only way I've met people.
You can try joining discord/facebook groups before the con and making connections so you have some way to contact people after but it can be hard to meet people otherwise in my experience.
>no mention of the fire


Anyway my favorite thing was momokun on the ala Facebook asking if there were charities she could donate to.

There were a LOT of posts that she claimed not to see about gofundme’s but you know chubs. Gotta show off that she’s caring after being isolated so hard.
Fire was mentioned last thread.

I miss the days when I was able to hold conversations with complete strangers.
Wrestler here, we've been trying to get a bigger room at AX for a while. It's starting to piss us off.
>wrestler here
which one?

Rainies buys the cheap damaged ones so no wonder about italians on lacemarket. I do not understand how that girl can catch all bargains of japan market , I lost some very good offers on dresses I loved, becouse of a to slow SS, I am pissed of when a scalper fiinds and gets everything instead.
You are right, Peachies never lied about buying replicas, so it was obvious what she was selling.
Mine happened a few years ago.
> I saw a moitie blouse I wanted for a pretty reasonable price.
>I read the feedback from the seller and the ToS before hitting the buy button.
>Feedback was all positive “ lovely item, in perfect condition” type of stuff.
>ToS said that she was a smoker, but didn’t smoke in her lolita.
>hit buy and the transaction goes smoothly.
> 5 days latter blouse arrives packed nicely and usual for a good seller.
> open package and get smacked in the face with tobacco smoke smell

> let blouse air out for a few hours.
> no improvement
> hand wash blouse in regular laundry soap

This is a perfect example of people who say “ you can’t tell I smoke because I can’t m smell it”. Girl we can tell you smoke we just are polite and don’t say anything. Pot smell is even more comical and worse since it is soo skunky.
It’s legit.AP goofs hard on berets here and there.

used to have same one and it was the same.

So I lost about $750 in airfare and about $500 on a hotel. I booked everything about a week before their announcing a change of dates.

My main beef is, if they knew that the dates would be changed...why did they not say something sooner?

Why would they let people keep making plans and throw away their money?

>But anon, it's your fault for booking early.

It's definitely NOT, especially when the convention itself provides financial incentive to book early via cheaper badges.

I'm still excited, anon. I'll try to keep my expectations low for now, but I feel hopeful. I think this change might bring some exciting stuff. And if everything goes to shit, it helps that I'll have friends there that I haven't seen in a long time.

You aren't. I'm interested! It could be one of those new beginning things. Honestly, think of it like A-kon just hit an early midlife crisis. This could be the poorly thought out sportscar purchase of conventions!
There are some art museums too, an aviation museum, and bars of course. If you want some strange photo ops head to the Log Cabin Village or the Cross Eyed Moose.
I'm lucky in that this hasn't affected me much. I live a few hours away from DFW and was planning to drive. I work as a teacher so I didn't have to ask for the time off. Aaand I didn't book the hotel yet because the friends I'm going with are dumbasses and even in December when I was asking about reserving the hotel, one says "REEEE I DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY BECAUSE I SPENT ALL MY MONEY IMPULSE ATTENDING ANOTHER CON IN THE FALL" and the other friend was like "REEE I'M TOO BUSY PLANNING A WINTER VACATION" so I was sitting her twiddling my thumbs waiting for them to get their shit together and then when I finally thought it would be safe to ask, this shit happens.
I wish they'd just hurry the fuck up and announce the venue so I can start making my reservations.
Did you pre-reg? You would have won the dumb luck trifecta.

Does anyone know how old AtelierHeidi is?
I remember she's mentioned that she didn't get into cosplay til she was in her 20s and I was just wondering if anyone knew exactly how old she was. I'm 29 and only just now getting into cosplay so I was hoping to find other cosplayers in at least their late 20s. If you can think of any other older cosplayers, post em.

what the fuck? that's so fucking weird - i guarantee most of us have been watching anime longer than they've even been alive? i'm sorry you have to go through that, its just sounds bizarre as shit
I've seen this on tumblr a lot - the idea that anyone over the age of 25 is on the internet is baffling to them, it's as if they believe fandoms only formed recently.

Sweet summer children, we saw the rise and fall of livejournal, webrings, and geocities sites. Women saved Star Trek in the sixties, created fanzines and started conventions before you were even a wayward thought to your parents.
Absolutely. You see this behavior with cosplay, fanart, or just being on the internet/in fandoms in general. Some of them decide it's their "safe space" and want to oust all of the adults out of their hobby without realizing that it's adults who made the thing in the first place.
Not sure of her exact age, but I think Holly Gloha is a little bit on the older side compared to the typical cosplay age bracket.
She is not 36, LOL

I haven't seen one of these here before, but I found a cute hashtag I want to dump some posts from. Feel free to post any lolita-related twitter things you'd like here too!

着たい服がある (I have clothes I want to wear) is the name of a currently running manga about a tall, shy girl who "isn't cute" and doesn't fit the image of a lolita, but who wears the fashion anyway and gets closer to the people around her through it. The title is also being used as a hashtag by Japanese lolitas to post about how much they love the fashion even if they're not ideal lolitas either. A lot of the posts are very heartwarming and pretty so I thought I'd share summaries of them here.

I am 38 and I still wear lolita. Don't give a shit what people think. If you love it, do it as long as it's not hurting anyone else.
This really made my day.
I am love seeing people who feel stronger in their frils, too. It is a little to fun seeing this echoed over seas.
This is nice to hear, anon. I'm going to be 35 this year and I still love lolita. Lolitas in their 30s high five!
Some of these are even more wholesome in japanese to be honest. Still, great work OP
Our frills are armour :)

what about other cute brown girls? why do you mainly like light skinned brown girls?
I mean if they were 'cute', then either way they'd be great. I've probably just seen a lot more cute light skinned girls than cute dark skinned girls.

How was Anime Impulse for everyone? I feel like separating us from the exhibitors this year kind of hurt sales overall, but I may be an outlier since my spot was kinda shit.
Thanks ! Maybe that will help. My friend and i were making plans to cosplay together for the first time. So I'll try to focus on that

I'm just really dreading the travel with the heavy luggage + setting up. I'm trying to change my setup this year to get rid of the metal cubes that always make my stuff weigh a ton
Any word on A-kon? Last I heard they changed dates. We've been trying to find more info, but we are coming up with nothing. Anyone got an insider scoop?
For those of you that do enamel pins - how many do you stock for a year for each design? Popular vs less popular designs?
I'm starting pins this year and I'd ideally like to just cover the one year (attending 10-12 cons). I've gotten good feedback online about the designs i'm proposing but I'm well aware that that doesn't always translate into sales.
Depends on the designs I suppose. Do you mainly do original/popular themes/or fanart?

Most of the pins I make are original and Id say 100pcs is good enough. Ive done some fan pins but their for really niche series. Those ones have sometimes been "hits" for me, and then I'd recommend 200-300pcs for those more popular designs.

If you are doing fanart of a popular series I'm not sure how those sell, you'd maybe want more if they're popular and/or you're attending big cons

is there any shame in buying cosplays or buying some parts of cosplays every now and then?
Although this belongs in the help/dumb question thread, the answer is no.

Just don’t claim you/your significant other/friend/etc made it and you’re fine.

We haven't had a thread in a while. Let's discuss our Comms for 2019.

Are you hoping for your Comm to be more active this year?
What events are you planning for your Comm this year?
Are you planning to move to another Comm this year?
Have you finally decided to just do private meetups from now on?

Not every place required a partial payment just for a reservation. I never put my own money on the line besides my own cost of attendance. Here are some things I'd suggest for hosting for a flaky comm:

>Create the meet up over a month in advance, so no excuses about "oh I have to work"

>Keep attendance spots low, 10 or under so that you have a waiting list in case someone flakes (and they will)

>Non refundable tickets. Flakes don't get their money back, but are allowed to sell their spot to someone else. They are responsible for that themselves.

>Make sure to add both tax and tip to the ticket cost. This makes it much less stressful than trying to get cash tips together on the day of the meet.

>If you absolutely can't find a good venue that doesn't require a deposit, calculate how many spots you need in order to even make the reservation and let the group know. Make the event two months in advance and let them know that if enough spots aren't filled by X date then you cannot book and will refund the money you already collected.

Oh shit, yes that fits quite well. In that case lmao @ "low priced items on yahoo".
There's only one problem with all her "reasoning". She's not providing a service that anyone wants or needs. She acts like this is such a legit job and she puts so much into it but really there is no good benefit to anybody but her over the fact that she took a reasonably priced item, tacked on shopping fees, shipping fees and ofc a little extra for herself. It would be completely different if this was 2004 and we couldn't get our hands on anything without a reseller. But this, she can just go fuck herself. She is not only scalping but also just inflating the price of things.

Also no one needs you to hunt down the whole fucking set and overcharge it. We can do that ourselves thank you very much. You're not ClosetChild or Wubderwelt that resells clothes that people sell to you on purpose. We don't need a reseller when we can go shop on YJapan ourselves. If you want to actually be legit just be a fucking shopping service.
>Are you hoping for your Comm to be more active this year?
Yes, but I don't think it'll happen. Each year everyone talks about wanting to be more active but nothing changes.
>What events are you planning for your Comm this year?
There's not a whole lot to do where I live besides cafe meets that no one seems to want to come to. We had a zoo meet once and it would be nice to do another.
>Are you planning to move to another Comm this year?
There's no other comms that wouldn't require a day trip to get to and back from.
>Have you finally decided to just do private meetups from now on?
The comm isn't really big enough to do private meets. There's one perma-ita I don't like that I'd love to not invite but using facebook it doesn't seem that easy to invite everyone minus one person. It also doesn't really seem worth it to stir up drama over it.

About 50 miles. Occasionally I go farther.

Generally, protesting something is a sign that someone feels guilty about liking it. I think being a pedo is the only exception to that, where most people are genuinely just disgusted by it and you have to look a little deeper at someone to figure out if they're just acting to hide a secret.
He was specifically dming people and telling them how cool they were, sharing things with them, then going cold on them when they didn't immediately respond or stroke his ego. Most of the people were about 10 years younger than him. He got off on the power he had over people and age was a fetish for him.
Nah, dude, they fucked him because predators craft a narrative where your friendship with them is unique and irreplaceable so you trust them and then they use you, and because it's mostly positive interactions you don't notice the red flags as they gradually slip in more and more creepy shit.
