got bitched at in BST for this too so i feel like i should clarify. i don’t care if you gulls want to ree all day in the ita thread abt fat trans itas. i participate too kek. it just personally isn’t a conversation i want to have in my one on one dms with lolita friends. i’m seeing now that i shouldn’t have said anything, i just originally wanted to make it clear that i’m looking for friends to talk with about the fashion, not the cows that participate in it.
No one will want to talk to you. Maybe try reddit.
reddit is an ita hellscape. no one knows what the fuck they’re talking about on the lolita sub. i want to make friends who actually know how to dress.

fair enough though. i’ll just keep lurking.

Youmacon 2022 is a go and we can't wait to see you all here in the motor city. But first there's a couple of important things you should know. Youmacon has been going on for 18 years now and is a celebration of Anime, manga, pop-culture, comics, movies, costumes and SCIENCE. If you don't like all of these things then maybe you should just stay at home.

And that brings us to the first thing we want to report- IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN VACCINATED WE DON'T EVEN WANT YOU TO COME. STAY AWAY. WE ARE A CONVENTION FOR PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN SCIENCE. If you cannot get your Covid-19 vaccinations then you may only come if you get a PCR negative test on Tuesday or later. But that should be reserved for people who have a medical reason that prevents them from getting their vaccines. We will not have PCR testing available on site.


All staff may check your Vaccine Passports at all times. Failure to show your Vaccine Passport at any time to any staff MAY RESULT HAVING YOUR BADGE TAKEN AND YOU BEING REMOVED FROM THE CONVENTION. We recommend using CLEAR (digital vaccination card that can be stored on your phone). We believe this will make everyone feel safest for the event!

Youmacon and other conventions of this sort is just another case of misery loves company
Now that Biden has declared the pandemic over, does this make Youmacon Trump supporters?

Good PR there jackass, you deserve to have your money hemorrhage even harder this year.
Can't wait to ghost this con and tell any con staff that I'm just a regular hotel guest and they have no more authority over me than a random sap on the street.

Congratulations on this guys, seriously

No one is going to sell to you. We hate troons, newfag.
just because i would personally prefer not to engage in the kind of bashing that goes on in the ita thread when talking one on one with a lolita friend does not make me not a real gull kek. i wasn’t complaining about what anyone else partakes in, it’s just not what i’m looking for in friends. i post fugly coords to the ita thread myself but i’m not looking for a friendship based off of gossip or salt. you don’t know me, nonny.

still hoping to receive offers. :)
Reeing about transphobes and the ita thread is what makes you not a real gull. Sorry.
and i don’t know how saying “i’m personally not interested in frequent conversations about itas or scrotes in a one on one private setting” is reeing but alright.

my taste in friends /= my views on the board and in general. i just came to ask about a blouse damn. if you sell to me it’ll be worn exclusively worn by a cis woman so untwist those panties nonna.

The organizers of the con are having trouble finding a site for the convention next year. It has come to conclusion that the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center is not feasible for 2023. In addition, the McCormick Place is too large for a small con. They’re looking at Schaumburg to hold the con.

What we know will happen is that vaccine cards and masks will be required and enforced for 2023.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Any choice other than Donald in Rosemont is suicide. There is no other area with as many hotels and convention hall space so close to eachother besides McCormick, and for various reasons that wouldn't work for them. I sincerely hope the organizers don't let their stubborn paranoia destroy this con.
And if they remain with Donald w/o mandates for 2023, their fanbase will be upset. Attendees, dealers, and staff want a safe experience. They don’t want to get COVID.
>their fanbase will be upset
Fanbase wouldn't care at all if there were zero mandates. Con would happen and tens of thousands will show up and have fun just like every other year.

Get with the current times. Even Biden said it's over. We all deal with it. It's said that if you don't want to catch Long COVID get all shots and boosters to be 85%+ safe. If you don't want COVID, don't go to cons. We're over it.

Why does DR get most of the bad cosplay with crazy makeup and wigs? What exactly started that and why is it mostly isolated to DR?

DR is basically new homestuck. it's full of edgy and retarded characters meant to be ironic or jokes and the fans relate to them unironically. that should really clue you in on the type of people who like it and why they want to stand out in an edgy and retarded way. originally DR was meant to parody other works in the genre poking fun at archetypes and the like, but people took it seriously and the "it's literally me" types ruined it, much like homestuck, and the author basically killed the series on purpose.
This is cool go fuck yourself for even daring to suggest it's bad

Is Sexual harassment real or just a meme used by cosplayers to try to be funny, it seems like it judging from their pictures.

I never seen anyone get molested. Also it seems like something pretty hard to do given the amount of people and also cameras. Unless your con has open areas where there isn't a lot of people or cameras probability you can get away with it.

Its ok nonny. You can stop beating up that strawman now. Everyone here can read the posts and know that isn't what was said. This is getting pathetic.
This thread fucking sucks.
Will you two just fuck already?
Anon arguments are not consent, sweaty.
Probably the wrong place to ask, but I once read a doujinshi where the characters go to a convention where cosplay is consent and several dozen pages of public con cosplay orgies ensue. Im pretty sure i guy dressed up as Link fucks his sister. Can't seem to find it now, so I was wondering if one of you knows where it is.

Does anyone think cosplay being pushed into the normiesphere is ruining the aspect of the community? The point of it is to do it in areas where it makes sense: conventions and parties. And at ren fests. However, we have this growing culture where they are forcing it into more normie areas. not only is this a awkward, but it's only making an embarrassment out of the hobby to begin with. We do this to have fun, but we have people who do cringe stuff like walking around normally in it like it's fashion. Or worse, doing photoshoots and poses in the middle of malls and such.

>maybe that chun-li bitch
Either way, I agree. The camwhore-ification of cons leds to the rise of twitch tiddy streamers, onlyfans, and simp culture.
That was already going on. What happened is that chaturbate and stripper culture flowed into cosplay.
that's not how steroids work dummy

I just want to be a dweeb in cosplay. I don't want to compete with hot people in cosplay.

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.

Nah, that wasn't it. 2021 skewed even older and didn't have any weird vibes. I think a lot of the issues came from new management at several of the hotels and poor line management. The marriott being scorching on an extremely hot/humid weekend didn't help matters either.
People are really underselling what 2 years of lockdowns and "YOU WILL DIE IF SOMEONE SNEEZES IN THE SAME ZIP CODE AS YOU" fearmongering, immediately followed by political unrest and economic disaster will do to everyone. Even just the desire of wanting to go out but being seized by the cognitive dissonance of fearing public gatherings for too long will leave a permanent mental scar.

Cons are fucked and won't last much longer at this rate.
>They let me enjoy my boomer anime and cape shit stuff!
What cons do you go to where you don't feel like you're looking for a needle in a haystack for anyone else who likes your boomer shooters and capeshit stuff?
Cons are fine, they'll be around forever. You think Dragoncon is dying because it had a FUCK LOAD of people? You're a retard.

Has it right. Dragoncon was just off because the line management was really bad and the hotels were kind of fucking up this year. Otherwise it felt not a lot different from 2019. Dragoncon is always hit or miss for me dependent on what panels there are and the random roll of dice meeting people.

Get better friends.
Unironically: take half or one tab of MDMA.
Wear some cosplay that allows you to constantly wear sunglasses and try to not go too hard on the bruxism or people will notice but it makes you hyper sociable and childlike.

Nice, thanks anon. Coincidently I live in Sunshine so I will use this advice well.
What was everyones favourite cosplay they saw at CRX?
i have a soft spot (in my penis' heart) for Azula from the last airbender so that cosplayer in the competition got my blood running.
I had a good time in mine. I see why people really get into cosplay, its pretty gratifying when people come up all excited to get photos with you, and to get photos with other characters from your series of choice.

Oh yeah that one was great. Couldn't get a great pic of him myself sadly, best being pic related.
It was definitely impressive and looked very high quality.
Though i do understand how he didn't win the competition. As other than being an impressive design, he had no stage presence, few practiced poses, nothing dynamic. Not that i can talk, i wouldnt be able to get up there at all. But the winners had very detailed cosplays and presented themselves so well. I imagine it was a pretty close competition.

I'm in the middle of making a complicated cosplay, but because of IRL economic issues, I've decided to embrace the Do It Yourself mentality. This is a thread exploring the reuse of old junk/clean up trash and kitbashing rather than well known techniques like EVA foam, hyper perfecting a cosplay with great fabric, 3D printing, clay sculpts, or straight up buying a costume from online. It won't look perfect, but many of the examples I see get the idea down and the key costume shapes/iconography down

Will be posting images and tutorials that exemplify what I mean
