Figured i'd have a decent chance between the 2 raves and the formal. Was able to dance with a few girls at the formal but i've never hit on people before. This was a first. Either go all the way or don't try.

That and I figured i'd have a better chance if I was trying it with people with the same interest who were as awkward as I am. I said 40. Exact number was 46.

I may be retarded but i'll be damned if I don't try. I was the dude with the long ass hair, glasses, suit and red tie at the formal next to the Pegasus cosplayer.
It was rad as hell to find some Girls Frontline cosplays. I didn't see anyone around until the meetup. I think I scored pics with just about everyone over there.

I socialize more as an older person than when I was younger. I just stopped feeling so much anxiety as I aged. But then the reverse occurs where younguns don't really wanna talk with me because of that gap.

I haven't been to any cons in years but I'm going to one this weekend with no friend group and no cosplay for ez conversation starter. How bad of an idea is that?
I'm usually pathetically introverted but over the last year I've miraculously been more confident and sociable which gives me a strange optimism about my ability to make new frens this weekend.
no it's jujutsu kaisen u dummy
If you're going to do this bring a camera at the very least. You'll look like you're part of the scene but care more to capture it, in a way you'll be in, despite looking like you're out. From there you're free to take photos and strike a convo with the person.

um hello anime riverside is going to rule?
More like California believes in free speech and loli.
I haven't been to San Jose since the last fanime, how has it been faring these days? Were the businesses near the convention center able to stay in business?
Honestly this sounds like a good time. You don't need fancy programming to have fun if there are friends and good food imo!

Which of these cons is considered the most established or gets the most attendees? Pensacon? I'm overdue to go visit Florida and would like to plan to visit a con there in 2023.
Pensacon is pretty small. Megacon is the one you want
Swampcon is easily the biggest

Wow. This might take me a little longer to crack...

Megacon is just a consoomer con and really lacks a distinct culture. You probably want Supercon or OtakuFest
Which con is that?

How's the formal? What's that normally like?
Should I post the link?
I haven't decided to go or not, after the past two years I feel like my youth slipped away too much to do any more cons. What about all you anons?
>after the past two years I feel like my youth slipped away too much to do any more cons
I sort of know this feel, though I'm 33 so my youth *literally* slipped away as well. I went to PAX with my friends last month and even though it was heavily scaled-down I was surprised by how much it turns out I missed the crowds, the noise, the costumes, all that con shit. Being around people who are celebrating what they're into always gets me more excited about my own hobbies. I think you should go if you live nearby, I'm probably going for a day even though I have no weeb friends to go with. Worst case scenario is that I get bored after a couple of hours and walk home.

I'd like to give it a shot again. I went as Doppio from around 2016-2019 and had a good time in the Jojo circles, maybe I'll rep my boy Kai for the Gundam fans.
I wonder how many people I met at AB are posting here now.

You don’t need to provide this kind of proof, wth. That comm is no longer active anyway.
Need to be a resident or tourist arriving soon. Don’t need to show a residence card or tickets though. Not having meets because Japan is still strict on Covid.

What's you guys' favorite dress cuts?

for me personally:
>old school style OPs with detachable sleeves
>simple square necklines, tea length dresses

pic unrel
I like the old school ones too, and anything with a longer bodice.
>Least favorite: sack op
Tell me you aren’t in Japan a little more. The restrictions let up months ago and there have been events and tea parties held outside of the comm.

Torucon finally announced the date for ticket sales - they've been awfully late this year, but at least it's happening again.
I'm sad jpopcorn is cancelled this year. I'm planning a trip and a con during it would've been great
I still haven't bought a ticket for Torucon. I probably should - it's quite likely the last con this year, but I've already bought so many tickets, and Torucon always feels expensive and complicated. If I buy a ticket, it'll have to be a day ticket, and then take the night train both ways which leaves a great probability that I'll be too tired to enjoy the con properly anyway. A hotel room is simply too expensive.
I hope desucon has 2hus
Just get some friends in Trondheim

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?
13 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Because she doesn't have the corporate backing of, say, a Christy Spankles who does exactly the same stuff and gets away with all of it.
I wouldn't call those weak ass masturbation videos hardcore porn but eh to each their own I guess.
i have some bad news for you. she's fucking guys on camera now.
If that's the filtered pic, how sloppy looking is she in real life?
Is she actually? Yikes. I just did a quick search and only saw some masturbation videos but damn my have the mighty have fallen.

Hey it's me, the anon with the knitting machine. Sponge bar came, machine is functional. This is a gauge swatch/stitch test I'm working on. I think it would be cool to do some gothy stuff suitable for summer. A wrap/stole perhaps? The yarn is mercerized cotton and my tension is very loose so it would be nice and cool (plz ignore the white stuff at the bottom, that's a provisional cast on) The ladders are intentional, I did them via hand manipulation for a distressed look (and they will not unravel further. Haven't touched the lace carriage or punchcard functions yet.
Congrats on getting it going!

We had one in my house back in the 80s that no one knew how to use. I'm sure it's in a trash heap by now unfortunately.
I was only a small kid at the time so I didn't know what it was or how valuable it was as a maker.
This is dope
That’s really cool, I didn’t even know home knitting machines like that were a thing until this thread.

Yes! They're wonderful devices that unfortunately aren't manufactured anymore and are therefore rare and expensive. I was lucky enough to get this machine for free actually, but I've spent a good deal of money on replacement parts and accessories. I think a lot of people think they're "cheating" but they still require large amounts of work to be done by hand like creating ribbing (unless you have specific accessories), seaming, manipulating cables, increasing/decreasing, cleaning up floats from colorwork, etc.
I'm glad you like it, here's the swatch off the machine on my blocking board. I'll get a gauge tomorrow when it's dry. I feel like it's not ladder-y enough, I might try making a new sample and only knitting on every other needle or so once I get past the ribbing so that it feels more open and airy. I think it might be possible to bundle together the ladder "rungs" using the tuck stitch function, I didn't quite get there today. Perhaps I could bundle them together by hand too. Ironically, the machine seems to open up more options for labor intensive operations like that since it does the boring parts for me.

Btw the way I achieved this effect if you're curious and want to recreate it was by making a fully fashioned increase in the middle of the row where I wanted my ladder to be, retracting the needles to a non-working position to let the ladder form, knitting a few rows, and then decreasing once I felt my ladder was long enough.
(4chan kept saying my file was too big so I had to crop out out the 1x1 rib I manually created on the bottom 9 rows to prevent it from curling too much)
