Old thread is hitting the image limit >>10715389

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

Nice! For some reason people here like to shit on men for wearing ouji but honestly if it fits you and you look good, then that's awesome
Welcome to the club!
people shit on men who act like they know anything about jfash when they're conflating it with western goth.
japanese use "shounenkei" the way the west used to use "kodona"

What makes a good convention party for you? Is it just the free booze? Meeting new people?
Do you remember any fun things you've done at a con party?

My hotel room is going to be the base of operations for some con shenanigans and I want to make sure I can keep people entertained. What do people who've hosted parties small or large have to suggest?

>I usually just commute to my local cons so I never stay late enough to party
Fair enough though you might honestly have better luck (for a number of reasons) at these local ones. I can say that pretty definitively after doing that just this past weekend.

The sex part absolutely does happen but really not that much, at least in the open. I can also say I have made out with people while friends are around and vice versa, it's usually not a big deal. Also are these friends trying to protect or get in the way?
I'm a petite girl and a lightweight, and directionally challenged even when sober, so my friends always keep a strict eye on me. They'd probably call the cops if I ever slipped away without notice at a con in a foreign city haha

But I'd also feel really awkward trying to give them a heads up....

Don't really do the drop in con parties most do cause it isn't really my thing/ they get busted a lot by front desk

>Is it just the free booze? Meeting new people?
Meeting up with friends particularly if i'm the one travelling

>Do you remember any fun things you've done at a con party?
Randomly volunteering for being bartender is always an interesting experience if you find yourself in one with a kitchen/bar, especially if you brought in stuff to make more interesting mixes/drinks

>What do people who've hosted parties small or large have to suggest?
Don't host one out of the back of a uhaul unless you're ready to basically run a con within a con among many other things, pretty fun if you pull it off with the right people though
It's a good kind of party con when you skinnydip on night zero, and that's considered "taking it easy"
>What makes a good convention party for you? Is it just the free booze? Meeting new people?
Just a fun group. I prefer hosting parties over anything.
>Do you remember any fun things you've done at a con party?
Not really. Just a few party games.
>My hotel room is going to be the base of operations for some con shenanigans and I want to make sure I can keep people entertained. What do people who've hosted parties small or large have to suggest?
Always have water, always have ice, always have booze and some type of music. Be polite and invite your neighbors and inform them of parties ahead of time.

Since we're in a bit of a down-season right now, and I've never seen this concept put in a thread before now seems like the right time. What keeps you coming back to cons? Even /cgl/, as slow as it, shows there's a billion possible combinations to explain: "Why?" Some answers, but definitely not all, would be
solo, group, admiring, meetups, photography
>What the event itself offers
Guests, shops / artist alley, rave, game room
>The social element
Parties (unofficial), hookups, meet new folks, mutual friends flying in from different areas
>Hanging out
People watch, the weird experiences only cons can provide, that one time in the year "the gang gets back together"
And of course any reasons I forgot to include are always encouraged. The floor is yours, gulls.

OP is a scrote, but I will agree he'd be far better served cosplaying Pip than Schroedinger.
nigga 90% of you women here are fat or obese you can't judge anyone on their cosplay
Sorry to break it to you but some of us take care of ourselves and can still pass for teenagers.

All you really need is to know how to use makeup.

There's a trick I've learnt from other cosplayers, you can wear transparent or skincolor pantyhose beneath it, and either sew the socks to it or glue it, so that they dont fall, hope this helps

I can't view anything on Taobao without logging in, and I can't login to my account since it's been frozen...

Is there some sort of way to access the website anyway? I just want to browse...
Create another account or recover your old one. You can't browse without an account anymore so unless you use some shopping service with browsing you're kinda fucked desu.

I tried creating an account and they just automatically froze it

Can't even access their customer service because you need to log in

Im lost
For gulls having trouble making accounts, I would recommend making one through Alipay. The QR code log in for Alipay has been a reliable way for me to log in so far, as my main account tied to my number also got auto frozen. YMMV, but it's worth a try.

>If anything the attendee pool that does show up will probably be much better behaved and of higher quality in general.
WELL FUCKER ALL I GOTTA TELL YOU RIGHT NOW IS.....I agree entirely. And it was one of the first thoughts that crossed my mind
It just hit me that Ft Lauderdale Convention Center hasn't been used for a con since Super 2018. Damn shame. I like it way better than Miami Beach
Welp even if nobody breathed a word about Mizucon till now I'm gonna say it anyway: I did not ever realize just how many autist girls (the good kind) live in South Florida
Is this con worth going to from out of country even if the days are shit? I have a flight voucher I need to use by the end of the year and friends going to this con.
It's by far the most beloved con in Florida, and the only one I know where people regularly fly in from out of state. You'd definitely best try to make it, since one of the biggest draws is their venue, and you'll never get another chance.

Anyone else annoyed by coomers in cosplay/con situations?
59 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Go on...
I don’t cosplay anime girls(because of dignity) so no I’ve never been bothered by a coomer at a con
It's so fucked that no one is approachable these days because muh sex. I give up trying to meet people
That's what ugly chicks look like incidentally
I go to small local cons and have not spotted any coomers or bitchy/mean people. The cosplay quality is a bit low, not many lolitas and no slutty cosplays at all due it being somewhat kid friendly event. Most annoying people are loud young teens. But even then I’m glad we happen to have comfy cons like this here.

because as far as cons go this is pretty much the bottom of bottom cons. It also takes place when other bigger cons happen. So this con is always destined to be a bottom tier con.
then why did they literally run out of badges and why does it keep happening every year
It's fallen a long way from when they had Studio Trigger come out.

you basically raped them mentally
Who cares? I'm a dude and I jacked off to everything at that age. ESPECIALLY the thought of being mentally raped.

Twitter is that way.
So one guy I roomed with was lusting after another girl like it was nobody's business. Then he realized that he was friendzoned and he whipped out his big nice guy fedora wearing energy and had an alcohol fueled meltdown in the room. And I was having such a good Saturday night too.

10/10, never again.

>foreign stereotype of russian women;
That is way out of date. These days the stereotype is rather unkind, where they do softcore, mainly on onlyfans, and left Russia to be able to get that money.
Innocence went out of the window, and now it is cold, hard business, and they will accept your ugly mug if you earn enough. I write from experience.
OP haven't seen a Slav to begin wth, all he posts are some Katzaps.

True, we Slavs had to fight Fingolian race of Moskals (nowadays known as Russians) for centuries. Tho Ukrainians are finally putting existence of these Volga Finns Golden Orde to the end.

I've been here for over 20 years. Fujos have always been yaoi enjoying women.
A couple years ago it got adopted as a buzzword incorrectly by clueless scrotes to mean females in general.
Now it's being used incorrectly again for gender specials and lesbians.
You're new to the internet if this is what you think that word means.
I've been a fujo since I was 12, writing romantic fanfiction of Sanosuke and Saitou from Rurouni Kenshin. The girls on Tumblr reblogging gifs of Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock and Watson GLANCING at each other are fujos.
Literally google the word fujoshi and see years upon years of definitions showing you that you're misinformed.
fujos are just straight girls whacking it to gay porn.
I will confirm just how true or false this is (it's false) after my Venti costume arrives
anon, most women who enjoy yaoi are lesbians. do you not know what fakebois are? all fakebois are fujos. it's not a misrepresentation of anything, you're just in the minority.
Don't try to backpedal on this >>10855458 to make a desperate connection of lesbians to fujos. Even if your ridiculous generalization was true, it does not excuse the blatant misunderstanding of how Char and himbos would be a prime target for fujos. I still regularly see people fundamentally not understanding the term and parroting it to mean female in general with no context for the yaoi even crossing their mind. I am not surprised that people are now using it for this too.
