Popular female cosplayers seems to of become more of dressing slutty for attention than putting together a well made costume for a hobby

keep perpetuating the stereotype asshole
It's pretty much only ugly girls who say that honestly.
This gets whined about literally every 2-5 years going back to at least the 70s. Do you fucking mouthbreathing, bitchless nerds ever get tired of hearing yourselves whinge about nothing?
Having self-respect means respecting your body and selfhood enough to do whatever the fuck you want. If that means you don't wanna show skin or be a slut, that's fine, but don't police other people. That's just being a cop and a prude.
Talent is inversely proportional to looks
Also applies to male cosplayers

What is with the military cosplayers that show up to anime cons? Not talking about ones cosplaying specifically rom an anime or manga, but the obese dudes that just dress up in their milsim airsoft gear and show up and act obnoxious to anime cons?

True story. I've known a certain cosplayer were she said that she fucked some of the Resident Evil/Umbrella Corp cosplayer guys when she was underage
Most of the dudes and gals I met were actual military army or Navy people since they joke about how their job training is basically professional LARPing.

There were some marines both male and female at Anime USA who cosplayed as tactical Pikachus which was hilarious.
You clearly need some friends and perhaps maybe a hobby other than being perma scorned.
Does dressing up as a Vietcong count?
>Larps as military
>Sensitive crybaby
Makes sense. No wonder so many of you troon out and carry around enough support plushies.
now kiss

Has anyone here been to an anime Dallas convention? If so what was it like?

Every con needs its own thread anon, clearly
The retards will always be infinite.
It was really nice. Took a lot of photos. Met great voice actors. I loved it. Too bad I fucking moved.

How do you handle it? I went to a con recently doing a slightly revealing cosplay (i'm male for the record) and I've never gotten so much attention in my life. People stopping me for pictures so often it took me twice as long to get places as it normally would, tons of people looking at me, more compliments than I've received in the last 5 years. I got to see friends, I got drunk, I got to look at tons of cool cosplays, I got to dance...

And now that it's over I have to go back to my normal boring life. How do I even cope with this? I can never get along with normies so cons are the only places I can actually cut loose and socialize. Are there similar fun things to do that are more practical/local so I'm not only having fun a few times a year?

Have a shitty friend grouo that ruins the con for you so you'll be happy it's over.
constantly drink & do small amounts of drugs, soon you won't feel a thing at aallll
This used to make sense back in the day, but today, if you're having this problem, it's on you. Post con depression is mainly that you don't have anything to look forward to in the near future.

If there's a local con, join them on social media. You'll notice a lot of small local events that while not as good as a full-blown con can give you chances to socialize with people in your area. Find your local cosplay group's social media as well. There's usually photoshoots and cosplay meet-ups regularly throughout the year.

Also check out your local breweries for events. If I wanted to, I could go to 4 board game meet-ups a week to grab a beer and play games with other people.
Cons make me depressed so my mood usually improves after

Previous thread >>10803531 died from a lack of posts. Not all that surprising with how little there was to post about at the time. Personally I'm also somewhat done with /cgl/ and all the pointless con drama and have been focusing on other things. But now that we've got several conventions around the corner, have a new thread!

Question of the thread: What convention are you looking forward to the most this year and why?

Upcoming major events
>22-23 Sep: Elfia Haarzuilens, a large popular outdoor fantasy event in Haarzuilens.
>6-7 May: MIA NL, a popular commercial anime convention in Gorinchem.
>21-21 May: Comic Con Brussels, a large commercial geek convention in Brussels.
>9-11 June: Animecon, the oldest anime convention of the Netherlands, hosted in Rijswijk.
>24-25 June: Heroes DCC, the largest commercial geek convention with a focus on dealers.
>30 Jun-2 Jul: Dokomi DE, a large popular anime convention in Dusseldorf.
>8-9 July: Atsusacon, Belgium's largest anime convention... I think?
>3-6 August: Castlefest, a(nother) large popular outdoor fantasy event in Haarzuilens with tons of great food.
>11-13 August: Abunai!, the second oldest and probably now largest anime convention of the Netherlands, hosted in Veldhoven.
>12-13 August: Showmasters Comic Con Amsterdam, a geek convention in Amsterdam.

Minor update: Nishicon is now aiming for an April 2024 date. I wonder why they had to postpone in the first place. For a venue to know they won't have enough staff so far in advance and not doing anything about it seems off. Also don't most conventions handle nearly everything themselves when it comes to setup and execution?
Seeing animecon desperate gives me feels.

dyslexia got me, thank you! i can definitely do that! i've almost got all your presents together and wanted to get one last thing from your wish list. i'm so excited to get this mailed out!
>is it too early to send it out?
The earlier the better imo. The closer to the holiday season you send, the more you risk your parcels getting delayed or lost. If your giftees happen to receive their presents early, they can always wait to open until Christmas!
Hey 3460, do you prefer more traditional holiday snacks like chocolates and tea or more weird unique snacks? Do you have any flavors you don´t like?
wanted to let you know that your stuff arrived:)
if all goes as planned, i'll have it in the mail next week.
really hope you like it/ get some use out of it!
thank you anon! i'm very excited

you forget that fatties have awful taste, anon
Save it for the ita thread anon, even tho this coord isn’t really ita.
That's because most fat Japanese lolitas are barrel shaped. Most of them do not have big boobs. So some brands make tube shaped bodices for their regular sizes and then just make everything wider for the plus size without adding proportionally more room in the bust.

Share Your Prediction for 2024 regarding J-Fashion
>Jersey Maid and Tenshi Kaiwai will be the dominant style of J-Fashion style of 2023-2025 since there has been lots of brands since last year putting out blue and white color ways. Also,it being everywhere in anime and manga fanarts hell even in actual manga (such as pic related)

>We will be seeing characters in anime and manga who wear tenshi kaiwai and jersey maid clothes.

>We will see new sub style from Girly-Kei which incorporates more goth punk and gothic lolita stylings (such as what DML Emily ,Ank Rouge and Jamie Ank has been recently doing). Which will be separate from Jirai-kei.

>In that note I feel we may see a gothic resurgence in general

>Jirai-kei will start to peter out in favor of French Girly,Tenshi Kaiwai,Jersey Maid and Gothic.

>We will see western fast fashion brands poorly emulating sweet lolita and girly styles due to success of "hyperfemininity" on sites like Tiktok and twitter,selkie (those ugly poofy dresses) and the barbie film.

>A famous tiktok/insta influencer or celeb will wear a brand and it jack up the 2nd hand market.

>Jirai-kei will start to peter out in favor of French Girly,Tenshi Kaiwai,Jersey Maid and Gothic.
From more inspection it's actually slowly petering out right now since Liz Lisa,Evelyn,Dear My love and Ank Rouge is releasing more french girly type stuff.

Jamie ank,noemie and amilige is releasing more gothic-inspired,punk-inspired and tenshi kaiwai/jersey maid stuff

But 2024 will probably be it's final year in the zeitgeist and we can all be freed from dark pink and black colorways

Pic from the recent Lafary Doll x Shimamura collab
I feel like the new girly kei sub style will be seen just as an evolution of jirai or the trend within the style. Like how lolita, gyaru and other styles changed over the years.
>thinks tenshi kaiwai is a real fashion

If youre a girl or a cute guy in cosplay its easy as fuck.

Otherwise spontaneous attendance would give you nobody or some fat sperglords(way worse).
Cons really need to have a maximum BMI limit (if male)
so female only cons then?
You must be a really thirsty virgin if srs
Snap back to reality, anon.

Why is there such a stigma against girls who cosplay for money? As someone who has never had a girlfriend, being able to send money to cute girls who cosplay as the characters that I love is one of the only things in my life that makes me feel like I have a purpose. From patreon to onlyfans, it's on of my biggest joys and motivations in my life. One day I hope I can give money to a cosplayer at a con in real life and not just through the internet.

>If you just treat it like a job it loses all meaning and becomes shit like anything where profit and money overtake passion.
this is a reasonable take.
Some one with poor impulse control would be desensitized and have difficulty jacking off to swimwear photos.
The significance is not that it's fappable, but that the original design was modified specifically to be more sexual. Usually just enough to get you to check out some onlyfans which you CAN fap too.
E-girls can be very manipulative and predatory when it comes to simps
They may seem dumb but they know what buttons to push
I wish one would push my buttons.
