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.

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.

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.
>>
>>10808403
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.

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?

>>10808492
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.

>>10808475
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.

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.

Looking to buy SMASH 2022 tickets, willing to pay a very decent price if you wanna sell or know anyone who's thinking about selling.

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

I went to matsuricon all by myself. It was a very fun and isolating experience. I had some conversations with some people for about 10 min. and then they went off to do their own thing. The panels were fun but I felt like that weird guy walking around alone with a cat shirt on. Any advice? Anyone else go to cons by themselves?

I went by myself for the first time this past year. There are ups and downs.
Downsides:
-No free photographer for my cosplay
-No one to predictably hang out with during downtime
-Hotel room costs more
-No one to help if you have a crisis or emergency of some kind
Upsides:
-Make new friends
-Get to do what you want when you want and move at your own pace
-More room in the hotel/bed
-Don't have to deal with messy roommates
-Get to hog the bathroom in the morning
-Don't have to help your friends carry/pack/unpack shit.
Overall, I'd recommend it unless you're a socially crippled retard or you're tight on cash. I love hanging out with my friends but sometimes they can grate on my nerves at cons.
>>
>>10807818
same anon, I forgot to add the downsides are it's more unsafe and you also don't have anyone to give you more mundane help/advice (like if you should buy something or someone to help with a cosplay wardrobe malfunction; things like that).

Is casual sex at anime cons a real thing or is it just a meme? I've heard rumors about after party orgies but dunno if that's just people larping. I've also heard that photogs have an easier time getting laid in exchange for their services.

Are cosplayers generally more promiscuous at cons? Any stories appreciated desu.

Does anyone here own this particular Wego bag?
From the pictures available it doesn't look like the window has a lot of depth, which is fine for the merch I'm using, but I'm also decorating with fake flowers because of my waifu's theme. So I need to know if small and medium sized flowers would fit in this bag, or would they be too bulky for it?
I want to avoid stretching out the vinyl window.
