Anyone attending supanova? Last round of cosplay odyssey is this weekend.
>FurrysIs that really a selling point?
trashcon looks trash
It looks like Avcon is set to be another shitfest.One of the staff got in a Twitter fight on the official Teamavcon account. Now the Twitter's nuked.
Fav cosplays from Syd and Perth Nova GO!
Tangentially cosplay related but is anyone keeping up with the WomANZ drama? It's spicy as hell.
>>10207681dish girl dish
>>10207681Do tell, all I can find looking it up is a really funny looking troon.
>>10205113>Family Friendly>FurrysWow.Also:>Nowra CranesI know those cunts - next time I call in a booking I'll educate them on what furries actually are.
Did anyone actually see the infamous K?
>>10207618Only went to Sydney on Friday and Saturday but I loved:Everything Cowbutt Crunchies wore (they were also super nice)Giorgia Costumes's BowsetteAll the Critical Role cosplayers on Saturday at the meet up (especially the Fjord and the goblin? girl)Art Noveau armour Overwatch girls on FridayThere was someone on Saturday in something huge in blue and gold, that was amazingThose were some of my highlights, but there were a lot of people in great cosplays
Is it just me that thinks all the male volunteers and ones behind the scenes are creepers?
>>10208708I don't know about other cons but the PAX ones are all pretty good, at least from my experiences. I was deathly ill one year (shouldn't have gone but it's my big yearly treat) and they were all more than happy to treat me as the same as someone wearing a 'disabled' badge, letting me in panels early, making sure I had priority seating. etc.
>>10208634Jesus Christ, what a fucking shit show.Gotta say though, in the earlier conversations, is that really how people talk to each other? It's so false and saccharine. Maybe my friend group's a pack of assholes though.
>>10208634>>10207681That's what you get for letting a tranny into women's spaces.
Anybody going to smash!? I have not been since they moved to the ICC and have no idea what to expect
Last year avcon set up an attendify that people mostly posted on to take the piss out of how poorly organised it was. Are there any similar location/event based apps that are good for the same kind of thing?
>tfw going to avcon solo At least I have a media pass
>Go to Avcon on the Saturday>Alone the whole time>See groups of people hanging out, couples etc>Realize how lonely I actually am
What's /cgl/'s take on Avcon this year?
>>10208708There was also one photographer who mostly takes photos of girls and he has a partner that is half his age in tow. >>10210407Yes. Hoping to see the guests they have for this year.
>waiting for all the avcon drama to get spilled cause it was a shitshow this year
>>10215291>There was also one photographer who mostly takes photos of girls and he has a partner that is half his age in tow.How old was he...?
>>10215471>>waiting for all the avcon drama to get spilled cause it was a shitshow this yearlol what happened?
>>10215471I heard that somebody was taking upskirts at some point. A cosplay made a post about it because a few people came forward and told her.Also, here's something I noticed~>Avcon>Recognize a cosplayer that I've seen on Insta a few times>One of those cosplayers that dresses in skimpy outfits, throws on something that loosely references the character and calls it a day>There's always this one dude twice her age that comments on almost all of her photos, showering her with praise etc>All the posts he made during Avcon had her in it or mentioned her (talking about her like she's his best friend, mentioning that it was great to see her again etc)>She traveled interstate for Avcon>He did too>Seems to suspiciously attend every single con she goes toI feel bad for her because it seems like he's stalking her. I'm new to the cosplay world, is this a common thing? How can a guy not understand that this might not creep a girl out?
>>10215291I think I know who you meant. Plenty annoying cosplayers kept posting photos taken by those two since early this year. Seems like they only work with the pretty girl types, not just any girl. However, I did not know that there is a big age gap between them. Do tell>>10215500I saw someone trying to take an up skirt shot last year in Avcon as well. I was already leaving so I wasn’t able to alert the cosplayer. How come these kinds of people are not yet banned by now?
Does anyone know how many entrants there were for MNCC at avcon?
>>10215504pretty sure it was just 3
>>10215514Thanks! I didn't go and I couldn't find much coverage yet.
>>10215291>>10215503Stfu you’re just salty that you don’t get photos
>Can't carry props bigger than 1 meter anymore>Can't carry around clearly fake firearms around eitherIs this the Entertainment Center or just Avcon?
>>10215548The one metre rule getting announced mid con was absurd. They had to delete dozens of comments to damage control, including site screenshots, as they tried to update the website policy section.Just generally Avcon's doing a horrendous job on their social media. The twitter fuck up was a bad start, deleting the account was a weird move too. They're currently deleting shit on the fb page and group like crazy and whenever shit gets too real they just start spamming copypasta telling people that the con's volunteer run and to email the secretary. I'm tempted to make a bingo card for their responses, they're so consistent. They had to disable instagram comments too. If you see anything at all interesting, screenshot and archive immediately because it'll be gone in 5 minutes.Other avcon highlights>sped loses crash racing game, throws chair>volunteer announced they wanted to kill themself as they were organising the auction queue>volunteers loudly making fun of some ouran high panel within earshot of said panel>opening night started 90 minutes late>closing ceremony started 60+ minutes late>sound was up so loud that a couple autists had full blown meltdowns and people left>sjws throw shitfit about maid photos being auctioned off
>>10215489He is around 40. The girl is around 20. >>10215503Yes the age gap is huge. The people he usually take photos of are also roughly at the age of 20 or lower. I don’t think the girlfriend has a say on who they take photos of. She just follows him around.>>10215518I have my own photographer who is not half my age.
>>10215573Someone started a really badly written change.org comparing the commitee to a variety of aninu and gaymen organisations, including akatsuki.https://www.change.org/p/team-avcon-bring-back-our-love-for-avcon
>Maid cafe photos get auctioned off>Some guy in his 40's/50's was willing to bid over a hundred dollars for them>Somebody has a meltdown on Facebook over it
>>10216389Well smash is happening right after avcon. Makes sense people will use their time and money to go there. Some of the stories I've heard bout avcon have been cringy asf
>>10217306>Some of the stories I've heard bout avcon have been cringy asfWhat stories have you heard? Before this year, I hadn't gone to Avcon since 2012.
>>10217640Apparently theres two I've been hearing. One being a photog who took photos of underage cosplayers under their skirts and the other bout volunteers being dickheads at a panel.
Somebody had their card skimmed in the Trader's Hall at Avcon. Any idea what stall did it?
>>10217714Either of the two that were selling exclusively hideous bootleg shit. If you're already doing dubious shit, why not?
Went to AVCon, enjoyed myself.>>10215573There were a number of delays throughout the weekend, it also seemed like nobody knew what the fuck was going on and when.Heard someone was being really handsy with a furry, had to get escorted out on the Sunday.
It's early, but what are people's plans for PAX Aus?
>>10219790I don't travel out of the state, so I won't be going.If I were, I'd probably recycle my costume from AVCon.
>>10219781Nobody knows what's going on. There's no signs, the guide comes out last minute and usually have mistakes, and the volunteers are given almost no practical training.
>>10219883Very evident with the two completely lost invaders at he door of the photoshoot with both Douglas and Paul Sunday evening. Lucky there was someone there who was listening to the Greenshirt.
>>10219883Pressed poast too early, rip.I try to do a lap or two of the place with my guide out like an idiot tourist to make sure I know where everything actually is at the beginning. Everything's always late and there's always extra seats, so there's no point in worrying about the when. Just be entertained by the chaos.
>>10219883>>10219889I hope they don't turn the bass up so loud in the main hall you can hear it clearly hear just the thumping bass in the maid hall. That was incredibly distracting.
>AVCon>There's a wizard walking around>Doesn't look like anything special>Suddenly stops>Reaches into his robe's hood and pulls out the AVCon booklet>Looks for a certain page>Puts it back in the hood and walks off somewhere
Where do I get fabric in Sydney? I've been to HobbySew, Spotlight, and Lincraft and none of them have the range I'm looking for.
>>10220530Poor anon.You must've been so scared!
>>10220611Only because he wasn't with anyone.It just caught me off guard.
Anyone know of any good commissioners that can do large coats? I want to see if anyone can tackle pic related. East Coast.
>>10220650If you're in Melbourne you can check Aussie disposals
who is at smash watching WCS today?
>>10221023Watching online because I just can't people today
>>10220622We both have doubles, anon.That means we're SOUL MATES!
>>10221088Are you that Wizard?
>>10220598Remnant Warehouse is good, but there's no guarantee of getting anything specific unless it's a stock service
>>10221023So glad that Nat was part of the winning team with her Liu Bei! That Dynasty Warriors cosplay is super impressive.
>>10220650A lot of Aliexpress cosplay stores will do outfits for any character you want if you send them a few pictures of the character.
i miss animania
>>10221293The surprising entrant of the father and daughter was entertaining.
>>10216502Where would I find these potential buyers?Might start taking photos at cons if I can make a few hundred out of it.
So Smash was pretty good. Also Zimiel seems to be a loner at the con.
>>10221499It was the official AVCon auction.
>>10219890The maid cafe could do with a photog that isn't a maid girl with a polaroid camera, lmao.>>10221499It wasn't just bass, the volume was insanely loud overall. My ears have been ringing on and off from it for the past couple weeks.
>>10223911Did you go for the afterdark party Saturday?I would never have dared go in.What the fuck was with charging $5 to single day passes to get in that anyway?
Any cosplay girls going to PAX/GCNova that would consider a financial arrangement/sugar daddy?
>>10226784Go back to your mom's basement loser
Anyone have a mid range wig store they buy from. Arda is out of my price range and i dont want to buy a wig from aliexpress because my last couple sucked.Used to use an ebay seller sun-gatebest but now the entire store is dedicated to teeth whiteners and electronics.
>>10226784>cosplay girlsThe correct term is "foxies".GET IT RIGHT!
>>10230627If you're more on the weeb side of things Kasou is pretty good, maybe a touch expensive bc converting to USD sucks for us right now but they've got a good range of character wigs as well as basic styles in a bunch of colours. Plus shipping won't run you upwards of $60 like arda does
>>10226784Depends on the arrangement you're offering i.e an allowance, paying for any accommodation, flights and purchases/food at the con and price if it's more like a once-off meet Vs What you'd want out of the arrangement i.e exclusivity, online, irl, just pics, lewds, sex after the con etc. If you're looking for this kind of thing you'd be better off having an idea of what you're bringing to the table and what you want from it. Your post doesn't say much and isn't enticing for people interested.This is 4chan so most people will expect you're probably just looking for a $150 hooker in an animu wig and that any girl who replies is going to be 1, roleplaying or 2. a baiting cam girl who only wants to hold your neckbeard hand, and will charge you $150 for the privilege.
what is there in perth except supernova? whatever happened to waicon
Would a Fallout 3 laser pistol prop like pic related get flagged under Victoria imitation firearms laws?
>>10234245Just a fyi ive already reported you and your ip address
>>10226784you again? didn't get anyone last year did ya?
>>10233477cons for perth this year:-little Robot (event for madman heat) April-Supanova - June-Evolve - September-Madfest - October and Rah-con has announced for april 2020.wai-con is long gone, did you just wake up from a coma?
>>10234836yeah something like that. Im in and out with this sort of stuff, never too deeply involved
>>10234245>>10234326>>10234357haha funny meme and all but I would actually like to know
>>102349131)does it look like any firearm youve ever seen before? ever?
>>10234917Obviously not but they might not like the trigger or the pistol grip or any other insubstantial part
>>10234921the trigger looks nothing like a real trigger. The pistol grip alone wouldnt quantify being a realistic replica.
>>10234928Thanks for the reassurance mr man
Australia just won WCS!
>>10234245Looks like some kind of high pressure airsoft gun.Probably would.Try asking your local station.
>>10234986amazing effort. it was a deserving entry
>>10234986>Australian team>2 Chinese peopleLoving Every LaughFor real though good for them, at least they’re integrated Asians not FOBs.
>>10235336Did you see team India? They didn't look Indian
What cons in Brisbane are actually worth going to?
Anyone know any good materials shops in perth? All I know is homecraft textiles. Looking for somewhere that sells cobalt blue suede. Pretty tricky to find
>>10234986When the fuck are they going to quit? They're old as shit now.
>>10235540Anon probably mean she smells like chinese sausage.
>>10235566when you beat them ;-0
>>10235567Oh... I see..
So now that Neko Nation's gone what's the go to con for fucking cosplay babes who just wanna have sex?
>>10235566When are you going to get good? Love live cosplays won't get you very far
>>10236106I wouldn’t want cosplay to get me into my mid thirties, that’s for sure.
>>10236162enjoy your boring life anon, thinking hobbies have an expiry date is basic af
why is it at consthe girls are either really hotor really ugly.
>>10236656What, you mean like any other event?
>>10236162what's the average age of a con anyway?
>>10236659Current year, there is no average age.
>>10234245I own firearms myself, do ANZAC shiz, pic related. From what I've seen 1. VicPol don't usually check you directly if its some sort of event (I.e. I do volley fires. They'd just ask my group's connection to make sure we all have licenses and assume everyone with a rifle on the day has one). And 2. Turn bit of a blind eye if its clearly over-the-top/in good nature.That said, if somebody does come up and ask you while in public, just explain it to them clearly. You should be let off.>>10234917>>10234928You, however; are speaking out of your ass and have no idea on how 50/50 the LRD/local DFOs can be on this stuff.
>>10234986is wirru still moving / moved to canada?
>>10237975>You, however; are speaking out of your ass and have no idea on how 50/50 the LRD/local DFOs can be on this stuff.it literally does not look like a gun. in your case youre using actual replica looking shit.
>>10238276>ReplicaApart from the Denix Webley; both the rifles are real. And we had many more that are real.It doesn't have to "look a lot like a gun" to be seen as an imitation weapon. Hell, some files I've been sent from VicPol themselves have had fucking space-age looking blaster toys be actual single shot handguns among real looking ones that were toys. Its not that it 'can' be an actual firearm, its how the LRD/VicPol decide how much of an ass they want to be over a subjective issue to an objective problem.I'm not arguing against you as a person, just letting you know that;A) VicPol can and will fuck your shit if that person feels like it andB) Being ignorant to firearm laws is just a pet peeve of mine. Its a stupid definition, I know. But I'm genuinely trying to help people out so we can get better looking props into cons in the distant future.Sorry if I came off as an asshole before.
That’s weird, my post was removed...Is coord talk not allowed in the Australia thread or something lol?
>>10238910bc u individualized
>>10238916Individualised? As in Bonnie? I’m complementing her though?
>>10238923If you meant well you’d just tell her instead of doxxing her full name on 4chan.
>>10238926The Melbourne Central FB page posted her full name... she’s also a well known artist in Melbourne, you can literally google her and see her projects on news websites. It’s horrible to say it’s doxxing when she’s a public figure that I admireI’m sorry if I’ve offended anyone but I was really just trying to start a convo
>>10238934stop posting someone’s full name you thick shit
>>10238940I’m sorry but you need to get over it, it’s public information. Last post on this.
Whos attending animaga this year? I’ve never been so just wondering what I should expect. Is it much like madfest in terms of attendance and activities/performances, or more laidback?
>>10239071even though it’s “public” rules are rules, dumbass
>>10239105animaga is very laid back, your day will probably not be full of activities. If you’re a lolita we’ll have a booth there so that will be fun
>>10239153That sounds like a nice change from madfest, I found that con to be pretty crowded. Would you say cosplayers bring their best to this con due to the location and less risk of costume damage? The museum gardens are nice, I can imagine good photos happening there.
>>10239105It’s madfest except it’s run in the shadows by MSY, a Chinese electronics shop. Expect lots of random videogame and computer shit that has no relation at all to Japan or Japanese pop culture. It’s a (very) poor man’s SMASH. Beautiful location though
>>10239275>MSY, a Chinese electronics shopare you being serious? or joking?
>>10239794MSY is a gaming/PC electronics shop so technically they're rightThey help subsidise con costs so they usually share about 1/2 or a 1/3 of the con space for game and pc stuffYou can win a lot of free PC stuff like monitors/keyboards tho if they do the giveaway thing again this year
>>10239811youve just convinced me to go to animangamaybe I'll even find a hot cosplay gf this year
>>10239275It’s in that big castle, right? You’re right about the beautiful location, imagine the photo opportunities!
>>10236162Just wear Kigurumi masks, or is that “too creepy” for you? As expected of a normalfag Love Liver. Watch real idol anime like Pretty Series
Anyone have the funeral details for Silhouette D'amour yet?
>>10240586What??? Is she dead?
>>10240694No. Stupid anon does this every so often, just ignore them.
>>10240587But patreon whores don't actually fuck guys for money since they make enough off horny virgins that they don't need to.I guess I could just hit up every instagram cosplayer in my area and ask if they wanna fuck but generally any chick who has an instagram is already fucking someone on the regular.Neko Nation was the go to for casual sex in the Australian cosplay community.
>>10240774The mememe cosplayers at Neko only looked good because of the nightclub lighting.Chuck on the house lights and you'll see how fat and fugly they are.
>>10240694Yeah suicide apparently
>>10239794Yes, they're a Chinese company that sells shit here.
Are people heading to Animaga this weekend? If so, what are you wearing/what are your plans?
>>10242782first time cosplaying, doing Leon from REmake 2 with some airsoft/paintball stuff I've found
>>10240586>>10240694It's real this time
>>10242886What? Did she neck herself after realize how many bridges she has burnt with people?
>>10242886Aaaaand no, no it's not. Going to ignore you from now on but she's alive
