Anyone at Albion 4 this weekend?
Thoughts on sunnycon? worth going to their liverpool version or avoid?
How we doing at ECG? Anyone watching?
>>10213628No placing for UK as per usual. Solo skit was boring and had tumbleweeds on th big joke, group's costume change was messy. So standard fair for the quality of the uk
>>10213694The Sakura dress was pretty, Tomoyo's a bit shapeless. Helenalice's skit fell flat because nobody could tell the thing was a lemon at any distance and the pun doesn't work in french which most of the audience speaks.
Try and use a pic with the Union Jack. Took me a while to find this bad boy using sight alone.Also what are the next 3 months or so of cons?
>>10213710Yeah that's the thing, helenalice makes nice enough costumes the majority of the time, but her performance skills are so shit it ruins the whole effort. She should stick to entering competitions without any performance marks
>>10213811MCM Manchester, gone woke edition.
>>10213811Lfcc and MCM Manchester at the end of this month. Both have big cosplay competitions - MCM has the eurocosplay UK qualifier and C2E2 regional, and lfcc has their £1000 national final
>>10213528someone teach Sindy how to wear clothes
Sooo how much do Hyper Japan pay her?
>>10213528I had fun at sunnycon, it was my first con, people were very friendly. can't speak for the cosplay panels and guest though since I didn't care about that stuff
>>10213811newcastle anime and gaming con is this month
>>10215600What a shit-show. Goes to show how clueless Hyper Japan are about what happens over social media when they end up employing someone to manage their cosplay who bitched about them and attempted to orchestrate a boycott just a few months beforehand.
>>10212824Boris doing a half-decent Voldemort there.
>>10215986anon was asking for upcoming cons and this one looks good
>>10215600looks like Kira is at it again...
>>10216057Showmasters did the exact same thing when they guested cosplayers that actively tried to boycott them a couple of years back; even going after other cosplayers that still supported SM
>>10215986Thread starter should have listed the dates for the next few cons/events.
>>10217563like Tokonatsu, though most people don't sound that excited for it
>>10217646It’s more the social aspect of slumming it in a tent and getting wrecked in a field.
>>10217248Question is, is it deliberately trying to buy them off or were they just unaware?
Tucky need to watch who he's getting. Remember sindy isn't an artist uwu
so what's the latest drama happening at HJ this weekend?
>>10218070that no one is going to be there?
Any suggestions on cons that have an older audience? I'd love to go to them again, but i don't really want to be the only person over 30 there.
>>10218092Fuck off creeper. If you've not got a life and grown out of this stuff by 30 you are walking probable cause.
>>10218092Minami is the older crew. People who have been going to cons since it was train spitters and dr who fans. Most of the regulars are 30-50 as its on its 25th year or so.
>>10218180Are you ok there?
>>10218092As someone approaching that age i am starting to feel a bit unwelcome by the younger audience, the looks they give you, or the comments from the ruder ones like >>10218180 but the fact is a lot of the community are getting older, their interest in this isn't going away and are still keeping involved and have an appetite for going to cons.
>>10218830Stop giving a shit what stupid fucking zoomers think, there's plenty of 30+ peeps at cons. Like 50% of the discord is in the older range of con goers (25+).
>>10218889>>10218830How's your cosplay looking with all those wrinkles and saggy tits
>>10218092I've been to different cons all over the country and I'm 25 and I've always been welcomed and never felt to be too old. Cons always have a variety of different people attending. The only cons I haven't been to are ones that are specifically for children. Don't let asshats tell you that you can't do what you like to do.
>>10218971Most of the 25+ crowd have grown out of showing off their tits for attention. You clearly haven't grown out of valuing nothing beyond male validation on your body. Sad!
>>10218180Christ, aren't you fucking miserable? Let people enjoy their hobby and lay off telling them what they should and should not do
>>10218971>Ignorant child talks.If you have saggy tits at 25 or even 30 then you probably have bigger problems than showing them off in cosplay
>>10218180>>10218971oh boy we got an INCEL ALERTCode 1 INCEL ALERTForecast: INCEL ALERTDEFCON: INCEL>INCEL ALERT
It's nice to see Brit threads haven't changed a single thing in years and still feel like kindergarten.
>>10219273it basically is but more boring
>>10213528if you're a filthy northerner go ahead, its probably gonna be awful since they blew their load already, but Id say its worth fuckin about if its half an hour away.>>10218092try looking younger.There are people in their 40s that look 25.
>>10219399Hate to break it to you, but most people in their 30s and 40s think they look younger than they really are. It's just a symptom of their mid-life crisis.
>>10219442I'm sorry you were born a 100% anglo.
Why do Hyper Japan fuck their dealers over constantly?
>>10219824They posted again and it looks like its been fixed. Its possible someone set up the wrong way because the stall next to it has now turned 90 degrees.
>>10218989Seems like the whole scene now is just Logan's Run. Once you reach your 25th birthday, you have to sell all your anime and manga, burn all your cosplay, cut your hair, have a bath, and get an actual job.
>>10219854Christ imagine not having an actual job by 25
I'm in my 30s and still go to cons regularly. Never had a problem with anyone being rude and theres plenty of other mature people to socialise with. As long as you arent cosplaying a teenage character like deku and then going to a meet with mostly teens then you arent gonna get strange looks or snide comments. Also if you are in your 30s why would you give a shit about what a random 14 year old says to you at a con. Personally i find it fun being able to cosplay older characters, especially if my son wants to do a parent/child combo cosplay.
>>10219869Oh absolutely. Mature people can at least handle their drink. If the kids end up drinking till they pass out, or launching themselves off railings while trying to sing Cruel Angel's Thesis at 3am, or trying to jump over bonfires burning their balls off, we people over 30 can go like: "You're on our own kid, nothing to do with us".>if you are in your 30s why would you give a shit about what a random 14 year old says to you at a con.Children can just be total cunts sometimes.
>>10219877>launching themselves off railings while trying to sing Cruel Angel's Thesis at 3am, or trying to jump over bonfires burning their balls offnot agefag anon but these are quite literally the most fun parts of con
>>10219863Christ imagine being poor enough you actually have to work
>>10219854Should have told me sooner, when it was around 25 when i was able to afford to buy anime in earnest.
>>10219937And then you end up in hospital cos of alcohol poisoning, or you broke a few bones, or you have third-degree burns.I know the worst parts of con are also the best parts, but ehh...the older you get, the more you realise you have a body to care of.
19 days till toko.
>>10220294That is entirely fair and I respect your decisions & experiences and shall strive not to have my own enjoyment intrude upon that of others
Hyper Japan is very dead today
>>10220571Possibly due to the fact the Sat is in two parts entry. Do they normally do this? I'm going for the first time tomorrow and most people I know have either gone for the Friday or the Sunday as they can get a decent full days con with those days.
>>10220708Yeah they usually always do
Absolutely fucked my chances with a cute guy because i freaked out a lil due to me being in a current hetero relationship and not knowing what i want.You know being human really sucks sometimes, i wish i wasn't so indecisive and knew what was better for me.Captain hindsight wins again i guess.Hope you're all doing well and thanks for reading my blogpost.
>>10220924I think you clicked on to the wrong website there
>>10220924Don't cheat on your partner you scummy fucking bishit. What's wrong with you people?
>>10221132Cheating only counts if it's the opposite sex and emotional. Casual same sex fucking is totally cool.
>>10221194That's why I peg my man, so he never desires any cock other than MY cock
>>10220924You saved yourself from a life of degeneracy. Repent sinner.
>>10220924I feel sorry for your partner.
>>10220924Holy fuck you're a worthless human being.
>>10220924Please think very carefully about what you're doing there senpai, for their sake not yours.
>>10220571how was Hyper Japan today?
Not enough furries yesterday but a load of furry artists. Everyone was ugly. The samples were pretty good but crowded.
MCM Manchester in 12 days, Y'all Gulls ready?
>>10221335Less people, less guests and less stands than previous years, but the food area was wayyyy better. Overall decent. Also bootleg stalls got raided by the old bill kek
>>10221369>Also bootleg stalls got raided by the old bill kekMost of the bootleg stalls were asked to leave and not return yesterday. Most refused to leave and carried on selling. The police wouldn't remove them as bootlegs are a trading standards issue. Apparently one of the bootleg sellers started making threats against the organisers and were accusing the security guards of being pedos this morning which is why the police finally got involved.
>>10221369>Also bootleg stalls got raided by the old billlmao, the memes write themselves
>>10221376>accusing the security guards of being pedosthat's a real special kind of stupidity
>>10221336> Everyone was ugly.including you?
>>10221369>>10221376doesn't TokyoToys sell bootlegs aswell?
>>10221364ready for what? capeshit? C rated western guests? not a "con" that is literally just 99% crappy overpriced merch, food and autographs with nothing worth watching?yeah I'm still going anyway.
>>10221376I find it interesting that the police effectively only got involved when someone accused someone else of being pedos. Clearly they take that kind of public accusation very seriously
>>10221450They do. Most of their non-figure stuff is bootleg. They tend not to trade at events that enforce rules about not selling fakes and getting trading standards to look at them would require the trademark/copyright holder to report them, which isn't happening when the rights holders are in Japan.
>>10221493Makes sense why they used to have an exclusive trade at MCM but don't now
>>10221493Huh, is that why their shops closed down?
>>10221553The London shop closed when they were booted out so the centre it was in could be renovated. The Brum and Glasgow shops are still open I think.
>>10221479Good Lad, Anon, c u there.
>>10221479>hasn't realised the "con" in comic con actually stands for con rather than convention
>>10221369OI MATE YOU GOT A LOICENSE FOR THEM WAIFUS
>>10220574What's with all the "inverted commas"
>>10221942Don't want some autism suing them because it isn't the real Akihabara.
>>10221450All of their shit is bootleg from Vietnam/Indonesia.used to work with them for a few years before Troc shut
>>10221575Oh, the brum shop is awful, though i've never cared for the tat they sell. The only weeb stuff i think is worth collecting is Artbooks, Prints, reasonable quality figure... all the keychain rubbish is pretty cringe
>>10221518They stopped doing MCM because the cost was getting too high and they make most of their money on-line. For each day they'd be probably paying 20 different people to help them out and their man seller, gundam figurines, wouldn't really budge.Used to steal so much money when I worked for them, utter cunts.
>>10222078They usually seemed to be doing a good trade, at least at brum, maybe it's cheaper for them to run a stall there though, as there were bigger places with far less foot traffic.
