/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.

Well there you have it, Tolerance policy (gedoogbeleid) only on a personal level. And even then, if you have several sunglasses, watches and handbags with you, then you might very well have some explaining to do.

Castlefest was great. The weather was perfect for an outdoors event. A bit cloudy but still warm, not too hot.
The food was good even though it was expensive as fuck. The kürtõskalács was my favourite. If you ever go to Castlefest I highly recommend those.
Also couldn't find a good spot to enjoy eating the overpriced food without those damn wasps showing up. Fuck those things.

I dont know where they came from, but fuck them wasps. Castlefest was a blast, despite the overpriced food indeed. High quality costumes, people were open and easy to talk to and the beer and mead weren't watered down. I was walking around alone, so I could find a place to sit at the tables whenever, because most people dont mind sitting and conversating with a stranger.

I know that cosplayers like Momokun have been canceled for their strange behavior at cons... but I've been going to conventions since 2005, and I see this sort of thing all the time.

I am not defending her, I think she is a nasty piece of work, but why is it that only she has been "canceled" when this happens all the time?

if the blouse was cotton with cotton lace (like btssb's back pintuck blouse or a more extravagant cotton blouse), and there were UTKs with cotton lace (like btssb's ribbon knee socks, any torchon/cluny lace would do) I would consider this old school.

The chiffon really does ruin it for me. The fact that there is no lace on the socks visible also makes it seem like they're just plain white tights, which is too boring imo.
I understand why people say this (the coord) isn't old school.

You can see the top of the socks, they're not tights. But I agree the blouse ruins it

I remember going to cons when I was in early college. I could always just hang out with people I just met. Sometimes I'd meet a cute girl and we'd go to a rave. Or, if I was in a group we'd all laugh and have a fun time. It always seemed like a new event or adventure to go to.
Recently though, cons have been so depressing for me. I guess I lost a lot of my friends because they moved or just got busy with other life stuff. I tried going solo to a con recently and almost cried because it was the most isolating experience. Maybe I'm just getting older? Idk, the magic is certainly gone. There's a con coming up in my home town again and am thinking about just skipping it and stop going to cons. Maybe it's just a right of passage during people's lives. I'd compare it to how the internet was in the early 2000's to how the internet is today. The internet used to be a silly place to post memes and socialize on forums. Now it's a place to get TikTok famous.

Eyyyyyy! 30s club.
Much in the same boat as these folk. Married so I'm not worried about chasing con tail. Got a big boy engineering job so money is nothing and a solid group of friends that like to con together. We get like 2 a year and its a pretty chill affair. The hype to get drunk every night is gone and replaced by the desire to be in a colorful atmosphere with good company. No drama, no screaming. Honestly it rules. Been applying more work to cosplays as well, never going to be pro but my props have grown significantly better.

DINK life is great for cons
>>
>>10792684
depends on the con

some cons are old school with a mix of underage attendees(usually with their parents that also have gone to cons), college age attendees, and 30 or older attendees

other cons are FULL of underage or even elementary children and everything is geared to the Naruto, bay-blade, and latest children's anime/Pokemon that year

while some are ONLY populated by 30 to retirement age attendees

as long as the con you go to isn't full of ONLY CHILDREN, you should be able to have a good time, try to mingle in the alcohol and ID area's if you need something to give you a "oh, hey there, remember G-Gundam? ACE OF SPADES!!!!" lines
>>
Tbis thread is depressing af to read. Yall need to work on outcome independent attitudes, and leave egos at the door.

Im 36 and still have a blast at cons. I have a core crew I usually hang with but a myriad of friends i’ve met along the years.

You can meet all sorts of awesome people at cons still. Just remember what you enjoy about your fandoms and let yourself unapologetically gush over people you see sharing it. If they dont match your energy no worries. Bid them a good con and move on!

Give yourself permission to join in on things that might normally embarrass you. You are in costume, you already have a degree of removal from your actual self.

Let the Genshins enjoy their pretty skinner box waifu gambling sim. They let me enjoy my boomer anime and cape shit stuff! Everyone is there to have a good time. Just don’t let expectations get in your way.

I was going through that too. I struggled so hard at having fun at conventions, especially by myself. It reached a breaking point around 28. I walked into an ALA stand-up comedy panel, a couple drinks in, and every single person's routine who went up can be summarized as "HAHA US VIRGINS BRO" or "haha god i'm so sad I wanna kms", and these are grown men in their 20s/30s. I realized that I honestly just fucking hate everyone else who's into anime/manga. Can't stand a single one of these fuckers, along with tabletop gaming enjoyers.
Now? I've got a friend group of very """vanilla""" folks who enjoy video games and have other interests but don't care for anime/manga/cosplay, but fuck me, they can actually talk about something other than their thinly-veiled porn addictions, and I couldn't be more grateful. I'm never going back to a con, ever. I don't even watch anime, anymore. The day I finally kick manga is the day I'll be free.

Cosplay as xQc instead

I'm a big buff guy, I frequent /fit/ and am 6'3", but I'm afraid to talk to traps at anime conventions. Last time I did, I just tipped my top hat and said, "what a stunning cosplay, may I please have a photo?". They laughed awkwardly and ran away :(. I don't want to be a creep but I'd love to be friends with a trap cosplayer. I don't really want to talk to cis women cosplayers, no offense, but cis women cosplayers are kind of annoying and entitled. oh, also shallow, yeah.

Being big and buff is not a personality trait or interesting by itself. It is a multiplier of what you have and clearly you are just a typical thirsty goon, so it doesn't product to much

99% of the people that crossplay muscular characters use a silicon muscular suit, and then blend the seams into their skin with latex. It passes the visual test pretty well and looks good in photos. My friends that crossplay shirtless guys all use them.

big booba cosplays also use silicon tits.
