what is the general consensus on "pro" cosplayers who make a living with the cosplay hobby?

I've found that some people have the opinion that they are wrong and should not abuse their fans with absurd patreon prices

I'm reading it more like "If you're such a pro cosplayer, do you even have any money to put towards a retirement plan, or is your hobby-job actually in the negative?"


Which. I have to say isn't wrong. Aside from costhot porn there's really only a handful of people who seem able to make an actual living off cosplay, the ones screeching loudest about cosplay being their main day job always seem to be delusional weirdoes.
>>
>>10273181
Costhots can't really start a retirement plan or anything like that because their income will slow/stop once they start aging
>>
>>10273194

Wouldn't that be more of an incentive to start a retirement plan really early?
>>
>>10273194
All the more reason to put money away while it's still coming.
>>
>>10273181
It's amazing how much their ego makes them insufferable to interact with once they break 5k followers on twitter and have like, 25 patrons. They end up with cheerleaders and white knights going "SLAY GURL" that validates their cunty attitude that would get them smacked across the mouth in real life.

Costhot or not they end up trying to soapbox for some cause hoping a tweet will blow up to get a follower boost after all more exposure = more potential subscribers!

Then they'll sick the betas on anyone that calls them out.

It's a narcissist's playground.They all hype each other up while hoping they fail so they can absorb their subscribers while ordering cheap cosplays and Wish lingerie to siphon money off of desperate lonely men that they wouldn't give the time of day in any other circumstances and are the same type of person they accuse haters of being. (INCEL! GET LAID NERD!)

tl;dr: cunty costhots are in for a rude awakening in their 30s and they hit the wall and their looks fade and their audience moves on to the next 20 year old costhot.

Dunno who did it, but apparently the reason for it was that the original group founder didn't want to transfer ownership to the admins/mods and that's why she deleted it instead.
>>
>>10273316
If that's true then it was miilkribbon. She was the old admin
>>
>>10273316
Wow really? Why she did this? Transferring ownership is so much easier.
>>
>>10273381
My best guess is that she had the same mentality that lots of other fb group admins tend to have where they treat admining groups like they're running a country or some shit. I've seen all kinds of fb groups get deleted for bs drama and where the original admins didn't want to transfer ownership because of "sentimental reasons". It's incredibly cringy, especially when it's big groups with lots of resources that get affected. I suppose it's something like that.
>>
>>10273438
This and if it´s really true we are also talking about miilkribbon which is a huge dramaqueen and totally mental.

Kämp probably is right one for this kind of thing.
>>
>>10265098
My personal favourite is restaurant Kosmos. It’s very old and traditional restaurant.

Demo is considered to be one of the best restaurants. It’s more high end and trendy place. Restaurant Savoy is also great place.

Hope you enjoy Finland and Hellocon! Vanajanlinna’s food is supposed to be good, also.


>>10265149
Kämp has decent afternoon tea and brunch. I can recommend especially the brunch.
>>
>>10265149
>>10265629
Thank you for the recommendations! I was thinking dinner moreso than brunch, but now I'm definitely tempted to check out Kämp's afternoon tea. Demo sadly seems to be closed during the days I'd be able to go there, but both Kosmos and Savoy look interesting!

Why is there so much non-lolita related stuff at Witche's Follies? They promoted it as a "lolita-fashion get away weekend" and that you can "spend an entire weekend submerged in lolita fashion" yet almost nothing in their program is lolita-fashion related. False advertising much?

She's in her mid 30s. Which makes it weird that most of the cosplayers she panders with are teenagers.
>>
>>10272822
>woman in her 30s
>dresses up like underage boys
>makes out with other women dressed as underage boys
>presumably to turn on her fanbase of underage girls

Is this slightly creepy?
>>
>>10272825
Yes but it's common now. Most cosplayers making these videos on Tik Tok or Youtube are targetting teens or preteens. JJ Pyropi adds an extra layer of creep though because usually these women are making out with other women their age instead of ones who are 10-15 years younger.

If you can't make easy money by showing T&A, you can make easy money by making sexy shipping vids for teenagers I guess.

so people spend their time watching two mid 30s women dressed as underage boys making out with each other? thats so weird, theres better things they can be doing.

I want to do some trap cosplays but I am nearing 30. I am very feminine featured, tho. How often do you see men in their thirties who are still able to look cute and sexy? I imagine it is rare.

Cool story bro. Read up on the history of hentai and the concept "sex sells" some time and you might learn the actual reasons for fanservice.
>>
>>10271788
Youre really stupid if you think you can go to japan and fuck a 13 year old. That number is the base age of consent. Each area has its own age in place which is usually 16-18. If you look up base age of consent for the united states it says 12. Thats the lowest it can go, but that doesnt mean any states have the age of consent that low. Shut the fuck up about that 13 year old shit pedo.

Does anyone here have patreon?

How do I run one? Do famous cosplayers have other people doing it for them?

I fucking love Alicegarden, I've got five wigs by them and they're all amazing. Super soft, barely any tangling, all come with a fake scalp so they look real too. They do need a day or two to air out at first because they smell quite heavily imo but other than that they're amazing.

Basically I'm doing a low effort shite meme cosplay of toga from my hero academia
I ordered some beer koozies to use as these shoulder things because I plan on putting monster cans in them instead actually having the needle canister things.
What I want to know is how I should stick the koozies together and have them be upright while supporting the weight of cans inside (most likely empty but if full even better), and then be able to mount them on my shoulder
