Is wearing a cosplay of a character that wears a fedora as cringe as normally owning and wearing a fedora? Do you cosplay any fedora characters and are embarassed of owning a fedora even if it's just for a cosplay?

Sometimes. I've worn cosplays to themed pop-up cafes, and I'm a teacher so sometimes I can get away with cosplay on certain dress-up days for Homecoming, etc.

it literally is, her body in this video and most of her vlogs (which is still edited to shit) looks completely different than her figurecos videos. if you read her comments the cosplayer even says she highly edits her videos and works with artists to edit her videos. most chinese cosplayers do this and get their videos edited. almost all chinese videos online with these giant long legs are edited with apps that are really advanced and barely change the background and can exclude other bodies or figures. see a real chinese person on the street or irl at these events anon, don't think these bodies are natural or possible irl.

fucking why

lara is a clout chaser and would do anything for a shred of fame. also i really thought it was cringy. her decor is cheap and looks bad, her husband is disgusting and she outted herself and has clearly been shooping her tiktoks while reeing about how she's totes not fat and is a "real woman". i just think she's pathetic and this is the icing on the cake. plus i hate all the cheap hotglue la pafait she wears with brand(yes la pafait is cheap hotglued crap, i unknowingly bought some years ago)

I’m aware that being 4 chan there is a good chance people won’t take this seriously. Nevertheless I’ve written a serious essay on anime conventions. (mostly from a UK perspective) What they used to be like, how I think they’ve lost some of their magic, and how I think we could go about preserving that magic for future generations of con-goers. Also I discuss the impact that conventions have on western fandom, how this compares to japanese fandom and what conventions can do to grow and nurture the anime fandom community.

https://controlc.com/1b02154d

I don’t expect a lot of serious comments but I would like some and promise to read them carefully. I’d like to put these ideas out there and see how the community receives them (even if they are polarising).

I’m particularly interested in:
*Comments about the technical feasibility of proposals.
*Opinions on the importance of grassroots influence in conventions / wider fandom.
*Whether you personally would want to come to the kinds of events I’m describing.
*Do you remember the ‘good old days’ of UK cons? Do you agree they were actually ‘magical?’

Actually I've thought about this quite a bit. With regards to bandwith and p2p the way to do it is to ip multicast. If you fiddle with the settings on your wifi router just right it's posable to make multicasting really efficient so instead of the streamer sending one packet of data to the router and the router sending out n packets to n watchers the router sends out 1 packet and asks all the watchers to listen to the same packet of data. this way its really no more bandwidth to have 50 people watching on the wifi-lan than 5. The trade off is some fairly old devices won't connect.

From the point of view of some one using VLC all it means is they have to use an IP address set up for multicast which you'd have to give them. your wifi network would need a redirect for a landing page which provided a lot of info like how to instal and set up vlc. We'd also put a basic text chat room. maybe with some sort of picto chat style feature (because everyone loves drawing dicks in pictochat)

I'm not really looking to set up many to many video coms. one to many is fine for showing anime, giving a presentation or even running a silent disco.

as for file sharing there are apps to run and detect network drives with shared folders. Just need to point people to the right softwear. If you're running the same os its often automatically detected on laptops anyway.

I was thinking the best way to attract attention (at a con) would be to give your wifi network a provocative name like 'free anime here'
>>
>>10807153
Basically to get multicast to work efficiently on wifi you have to turn off support for slower speed machines. (basically turn off everything but wifi/n support and disable the slow channels).

Hoping to do some experimentation with this at some point.
>>
>>10807153
>>10807156
ok, now that you said it i can't believe how the simple "free anime here" wifi idea slipped my mind. Years of learning how to dodge suspicious sites does shit to your creativity.
In here some really passionate people revived old anime tv channels by downloading all the dubbed series, segways and shit and streaming with even the original schedule. since i have enough material i was thinking of doing something similar since its not that hard to make a stream nowadays. i even found here some dude who streams all of Stargate atlantis back to back 24/7 on some streaming page, so technology and availability isn't an issue nowadays, just the "get the people" part.

It doesn’t always have to be hard, technically. I’m an autistic not well connected kind of guy so I tend to piggy back on other social butterfly’s who tolerate me. Hence the idea of piggybacking off existing events.

Anyway I’m off over seas for 5 days. Don’t know if the thread will be live when I get back but know I’ve. Found all your input really helpful
>>
>>10807687
it's been alive alive for almost 20 days by now, it should continue for a while i believe.
I wouldn't say i'm a social butterfly, i'm more of a nice colored moth yet the last years has been hard for this kinda thing so it does feel a little difficult; but since we had this conversation i got a little more invigorated and decided to try to fishing in other areas too. Currently i'm looking for some irl hobby group to participate, like jp classes or the like, somewhere that like minded people would go

Is anyone planning on going to Anime Japan in 2023, assuming restrictions go away?

is this cosplay?

Where do you draw the line? how much dick bulge should be allowed at cons? Feels a little different than cleavage.

How bad/cheap can cosplay be before it's no longer cosplay?

It was very awkward seeing fat, hung miles morales marching around the show.
