>>10191276Wah. Weak cuck is mad that con goers fuck. I delight in the fact that you remain miserable and passed over while I enjoy the ladies.

Cosplayers and crossboarders who complain about lolitas>>10191280Just hide our threads, ya walnut
Screaming teens and emotionally immature 20 somethings at cons.People with shitty pronoun pin/down with cis """itabags""" (I don't mind people having one or two but i mean the ones who have a million) Neckbeards/ Children complaining loudly about people cosplaying x series because they just passed someone cosplaying it.People blocking the halls to take photos and getting mad when people walk by/ask to get by.
I don't know if this is a thing in other countries, but at least in my country it is >People making their own hashtags for their costumes/groups>Hype up the said hashtag on social media months before the con like "I love my planned #BestGroupEverFromSeriesX!!!">Use the hastag couple times and abandon it, maybe even the cosplays as well>Literally no-one caresI'm all for cataloguing your cosplays etc. under one hashtag so that you can find tweets relating to them easier in the future, but why do people feel the need to create new hashtags for every single costume they make.
>lolitas>People who show up just to party>People who don't like anime but go to cons>People who wear western cosplays to an anime con or fursuiters at an anime con
>>10191307Lolitas are baited so easily, its insane
>>10191307Hard to hide your threads when you post in con threads bitching about this and that
>>10191283>people in cons in current year STILL glomping, groping, squealing, and YAOIZ!!! x3I haven't seen this happen in years
>>10191607what if i told you that some conventions have lolita related events so its not entirely uncouth for them to be posting there. >>10191597nayrt but someone telling you to just hide the threads you dont like isnt really falling for your epic bait, fish harder.
>>10191615Yes it is little anon, when you know it’s bait you don’t reply.
>>10191615Jesus Christ you're dumber than a goldfish.
>>10191615Some conventions do have Lolita but every con thread in my area area for the last 3 years or so has had issues where lolitas pop in and complain about there not being enough lolita panels/tea parties/guests or say the organizers are anti-lolita. The local comm got so bad last year the con chair came into the thread himself to say that the con didn't have an anti-lolita bias, they just don't make money for what it costs so it got canceled.The spoiled, entitled behavior they keep showing pisses off cosplayers who just want to talk about a con. It's like if fursuiters came into a thread for an anime con and bitched about not enough anthro content.
>>10191615Not them but lolitas are baited very easily. You can witness this in any lolita thread.
>>10191623ayrt, this actually makes sense and would get on my nerves. i'm sorry your local con threads get hijacked by crybabies. i never said lolitas couldn't be entitled in those threads, and that sucks. legitimately sorry your con has to deal with that and makes me feel warmfuzzy that our small but local con seems to lack a lot of the bullshit some other areas have (or i am just not involved enough on that end to notice/for it to effect my enjoyment of it). i go to cons both as a cosplayer and to attend lolita events if they're available so i get both sides. its just easier for me to ignore stupid shit than it is to let it become something that grinds my gears.
>>10191276>bunny version of a cosplay>casual version of a cosplay that looks like they aren't even trying
>>10191623Did you copy-paste this or are you still this butthurt? I swear i've read that exact post months ago.
>>10191623There was a lot of shit slinging going on in that thread. Stop acting like you're the maligned innocents in this.
>>10191610it probably doesn't happen in most modern countries, but I live in midfuck nowhere Europoor and in this year's con there was still a few of them around. one of them begging my (underage) friend to do "yaoi poses" with another cosplayer when they were clearly uncomfortable
>politics in cosplay and fashionlike... I get it at some point thoughts, feelings, morals, etc are inevitable but... dio cristo. EVERYTHING has to be left vs right, le libtard tumblrina sjws vs alt right drumpf nazis, this or that, heated arguments, and everything is a political statement and if you're neutral you're part of the problem and deserve to die.
>The amount of salt some lolitas haveSome good threads go bad when the salt pours and they just let it pour
>>10191346I can’t believe there are still people in artist alleys selling those bullshit sexuality flag pillows and shit, and that there are enough men who think they look like anime girls in the con community to keep the business afloat.
>>10191719All the cosplayers I follow on instagram won't stop spamming their stories with political shit. I understand maybe once in a while, but this 24/7 ""activism"" is just unbearable
>people that consider themselves pro cosplayers and buy all their cosplays>the fact that 99% of cosplay is shit that people buy instead of make>people that don't wear deodorant at cons>people that don't take piercings out/cover up tats when doing innocent character cosplays>the fact that 99% of the cosplay community are insufferable political tards that just reverberate off each other, and thus make half the panels at cons "Is X gay?!?!?" or "LGBTQ in LWA?!?" instead of actual interesting shitlook man I just want to make costumes, dress up, and talk with other people about how they made their costumes. it's not a hard concept. instead, you get mini political rallies with an extra dose of autism. Seriously, fuck off with your "this character whose sexuality is literally never mentioned is DEFINITELY G A Y and if they're not i'm TAKING THEM BACK >:^)". On top of that, the community is fake as fuck; they do the whole "UWU DRINK WATER AND NO BULLY" and then they talk mad shit about other people for literally no reason. I really hate the community as a whole desu and I would quit in a heartbeat if I didn't like making costumes and meeting and chilling with the handful of people who make their cosplays, or with some of the people from here.

>>10192046so are you mad because you're fat or a poorfag?
>>10192026Honestly I find the panels annoying too but fan run panels have always been annoying. If you have better ideas for what to do panels on then please apply to run one and give the cringe ones less space to exist in.

>>10192102are you retarded? garbagechan is a poorfag and more than one person can think fatties are ruining the sizing for this fashion
>>10191807the even more ironic thing is that most of them don't even do it for the sake of actual activism, justice, morality and whatever, it's purely for clout and fitting in with the masses or with their clique.they merely repeat things like robots without genuinely believing in them.it makes me pretty sad, especially being a queerfaggot retard fairy myself. i work the courage to open up and they turn out to be the complete opposite of what they preach. /blogpost
>>10192111And who said you, personally have to deal with them? Quit changing your answers from “I hate people who come to party” to “uhhh just the 14 year olds!!1!11”

>>10192163try being a lesbian
>>10191374Room parties are added bonus? Free liquor, anime on the tv, you make new friends all while the con is dying down???Come on Anon, let me change your mind.
>>10192309exactly, i don't go specifically for the parties but they're an added bonus and are way more fun than bars. getting drunk with random weebs who have the same interests as you is way better
>>10191297Huge difference People fuck at cons. I have Con FWBs. I’ve done a couple con hookups. Normie fuckboys that go because they saw JNig and ewhores like her on the internet are a different category. Same type of people that think goodboy tokens buys pussy.
At colossal this year there were people wearing literal Halloween costumes Like. I’d rather see bad storebought shit to be honest. This one dude was praised on his creativity for a costume that was viral on Facebook videos and vice.
>>10192307Any horror stories in that regard?>be both an otter and a gay chubby chaser>see all the cute chubby guys (the well adjusted ones with good hygiene anyway) at the con>whip out every gay app on my phone>no one is listed within con proximity
pic related. I know this is a common one but fuck do some closet cosplays just rub me the wrong way. She literally just threw on a towel and called it a day.
>>10192307How do you feel about trannies coming in and thinking they’re one of you? You’re being erased, you know. Anime cons need a terf panel to go alongside all the other queer panels. Can you even imagine
>>10192333Lol she didn’t even color her eyebrows black like her wig. If you’re a one of the .01% of cosplayers who don’t own either a black eyeliner pencil or eyeshadow you could shoop it. How lazy can you be?

>>10192360i agree with all of this.
>>10192360agree with all of thisit's gatekeepy but seriously, the amount of retardation I see in the hobby is too much. Cosplay is cosplay first and foremost; see way too many people try to inject their weird fetishes, shipping, or politics in for no reason at all. also i've said it before but FUCK people who only buy their cosplays and then proclaim they're a professional cosplayer or have cosplay insta pages. i hate the beta orbiters as well
>>10192360>dudes who only go to cons just to fuck girls and only to fuck girls, literally are not interested in anything else and only have a small interest in anime or cosplay if any at allSo it's alright if I am bi?

Hey fat haruhi at kawaii kon, if you’re a seagull, fuck you. I hope diabetes snatches your ass.
>>10191660Aw, I love bunny costumes. My gripe is when a person very obviously slaps on whatever minimal accessory they can to be identified as 'x' character. Like at least tailor the costume to the character.
>>10192214>KDA cosplayers Just in general? Why's that?
>>10192214Reading this post made my blood boil. Hard same on a lot of these points, anon.
>>10192333Closet cosplays in general grind my gears because 9 times out of 10 they never lead to actual cosplays like they're intended to. Lazy instacosers just fucking do the bare and I mean BARE minimum like this, then just call it quits.
>>10192102Wait, did she actually?
>>10192442What if tonight’s put into it? Or based on good fan art? I’m trying to find a good casual Dabi to do mostly because I’m almost out of make up and can’t do my full arms. I think I have enough to do my face just two more times.
>>10192360>People who only cosplay from one, maybe two shows, do an endless amount of low effort OCs/AUs and don't watch anything else at allAnd they'll take 3,000 pictures of each cosplay and continuously post them months after they were originally taken instead of focusing on any other costume.
>>10192445That should have said thought what the fuck apple why are you like this.
>>10192445Casual cosplays and closet cosplays are totally different. A closet cosplay is literally in the name for throwing on whatever is in your closet. A casual cosplay could include items from your closet, but that would be mere coincidence rather than intentional. There are casual outfits for certain characters or fanart with casual outfits that can look really good, but would require more than a bare minimum effort which wouldn't make it a bad costume. My gripe is that people who do closet cosplays consider them to be complete costumes. It's not the full thing and shouldn't be considered like it. Buying just the wig for a character can and should never be considered a finished cosplay, it's a makeup test at best.
>>10191291*Fedora tips furiously*
>elitists who aren’t friendly if you aren’t efamous, a fellow elitist cosplayer, or certain level of attractiveness >people who are rude as shit irl but then complain online how lonely they were at the con/how they have no friendsThese kind of run one and the same but I’m so tired of this whole “I’m gonna be a dick to people irl but I’m nice online! uwu” thing I’ve been seeing. It’s especially prevalent in fandom communities when some person thinks or is a BNF
>>10192309Maybe you should read first. Post says "just to party" People who spend all night at room parties and half the day stumbling around drunk, go to no shoots, go to no panels, and barely go into the dealers hall annoy me.If you still do that past the age of 22-23, you're dumb. If someone is going to show up to a con only to drink, they could have done that at a bar or club for a tenth of the price
>>10192536Imagine being this fucking boring
>>10192446I'm on the fence over this, I do it too, mind you with lots of effort, and I honestly just cannot get into any other show, so all my cosplays are from the same show all the time. What varies is the make-up work, the props, the detail on each costume even if it's very simple. Sometimes I pick the easy ones but just try to nail being as perfect as I can. I do worry what people think that this is all I have, but then I'm doing it for me so... And to break up the monotony, I post pics of all the other people I get cosplay photos of, too, because I'm sure they'd like to see those.I do get frustrated by the people who don't even make a cosplay and do the same thing, though. I always wonder if my own posts are annoying.
Seeing some of the posts on here leads me to ask an important question: What percentage of the cosplay scene is gay SJWsAsking as I have yet to go to a con
>Using your local community cosplay page as your personal.If this happened once or twice, it'd be whatever, but our "admin" constantly is posting about needing roommates, or their own personal niche events, or just generally asking stupid immature questions in general. Almost everybody's left because of this crap and another page/hub hasn't popped up. We even have events for our city on another city's cosplay page just because it's way more professional.
>>10192652depends on the con and the country but mainstream ones in murica? I'd say... 70%, roughly Not all that 70% is super in your face, but minimally are sjw types and blind parrots
>>10192652Sounds like you shouldn't go to a con desu
>>10192652Depends if by sjw you mean existing whole gay or not being a poltards.Only a few people at cons actually spew that poltard shit and they get blasted so hard when they do. Most people are just your standard fare of liberals. LGBT people exist but the idea people have of the blue haired feminazi does not exist at all. J have been going to cons for 6-7 years and have never met one of themIf you're just gonna go audibly shitpost about Trump or nazpol stuff tho, save yourself the embarrassment and don't go
>>10192634Yeah, I feel you anon. 90% of the cosplays I make are from the same series because 1) I love it 2) There are a lot of games, and lots of variety in the character designs, and I really enjoy making them in the style that they use, and 3) It's why the majority of my followerbase is there in the first place. I don't know why that would annoy people- just don't follow people who post mostly from stuff you're not interested in.
>>10192652Yeah, >>10192674 is pretty accurate. I've been going to cons the same amount of time and can count on one hand the number of "crazy SJWs" I've seen, and I feel like I rarely encounter people talking politics at all. Most people there are liberal though, and lots are LGBT, so don't expect to get off scott-free if you bring up very conservative viewpoints with people.
>>10192674I just don't want to make con friends and then they turn out being the kind of people that call you a nazi for saying the wrong thing
>>10192684Either your super paranoid, shitposting, or you're a loser poltard. People don't just say that.However, if you walk up to some transgirl at a con and call them a trap or tell them they're a man, people are gonna get pissed at you. Just keep your shitty takes to yourself if you're really that much of a retarded chud
>>10192536You sound boring and bitter, anon. You spend your con thinking about those people?Damn.
>>10192536Imagine being this much of a faggot
>>10192389yesplease fuck me I'm begging you please
>>10192436It's my least favorite cosplay trend so far. I've been playing league since 2012, so watching the character design go from general moba aesthetics to these edgy teen aesthetics (whether they're more "anime schoolkid" or "kpop thot" or what have you) is really cringy desu. Also to me its one of the most low-effort 'cosplays' out there - I guarantee most of the people who cosplayed from it bought all of it and would never cosplay the original splash art of eve, kai'sa, akali, or ahri (well except ahri, but I consider ahri cosplayers automatic e-thots. that's another thing but it doesn't grind my gears as much lol)
>>10193449>>10193464imagine getting this offended over someone's opinion
Con/cosplay videos that are always the same; Overwatch, MHA, and girls in slutty armor.
Do you guys hate the first time cosplayers that did their own cosplay from scratch but aren't really that good?
>>10194111>Making my first cosplay from scratch this year>so scared that it I'm gonna screw it up and everyone will think it looks stupid haha yea.....
>>10191276That first one couldn’t be truerI ran into a group of chads and they didn’t know what anime was. They were there to get laid
>>10194114Other than the autists on cgl, legitimately no one cares, just go have fun anon
Was at a convention today, didn't get laid :(
i can't stand most genderbend cosplays. wouldn't mind at all if people would take the character's personality into account. ie, a hypermasculine dudebro character would probably at least be a short-haired tomboy as a girl, not a girl with super long beautiful hair and three pounds of makeup. basically reposting what someone else said on the bad shoop thread but i agree with it so much: genderbending a character wouldn't change their entire personality and aesthetic. plus when they're good i can really get behind them but the majority of the time i just feel like it's an excuse to be lazy for people (mainly girls) who don't want to even attempt crossplay
>>10194140It's okay anon, there's still today at matsuri.
>people who literally PUSH you in the dealers room >cosplayers that have no sense of decency about moving to the side when they have large props and decide to just stand in the middle of a walkway>con goers who don’t understand that no means no when they ask if they can take your picture The last one is because of a special incident where I was on my way to the bathroom since I had a few minutes before hosting a panel and someone asked to take my photo. I said “sorry, but no. I have to use the bathroom but I’ll be in room xyz later if you want to come by and take a pic then.” This beast of a woman then proceeded to follow me while telling me how rude it was to be dressed up in an “attention drawing” outfit but not allow people to take pictures. Something about how I was stuck up because I was wearing brand and that I shouldn’t be dressed up if I didn’t expect people to take pics, “at least I ASKED, I could have just taken one it’s a free country” and other random shit talking. I turned around and screamed “LOOK I HAVE TO PISS AND IM WEARING 4 PETTICOATS PLEASE” it was a photo finish, pun intended. I made it to the bathroom in time and thankfully she was gone when I left. I never met anyone who felt so entitled to a photo before.
>>10194313does the con check badge at the door? pretty decent chance that was a normie there to gawk
>>10194328Actually that does make sense since I was away from the dealers hall and it’s free range by the conference rooms.
>>10194111Of course not. It's exciting to see someone start their crafting journey. It makes me want to give them the resources to improve.
>>10194114Who cares if it's not that great? It's your first time. No one is expecting you to pop out of the pussy as fucking Michelangelo. You need time to hone your craft. So enjoy the process and try to put those thoughts aside so that you can have fun. Best of luck, anon.
>>10194149This. The single worst genderbends I've seen have come from MHA, but no one should really be surprised at that.
>>10194313>people who literally PUSH you in the dealers roomI've had that happen to me and I wasn't even towards the front of the line, honestly I was closer to the back of the crowd. I had stayed up late the night before to finish a hair prop that I had spent about a month making. It was lightweight and was shorten than the width of my body, so it shouldn't have been an issue; but, within 5 minutes of walking through the dealer's room doors, some asshole bumped into me and sped off, knocking my months of work and hours of sleep lost on the floor, ruining it instantly.
>>10194342MHA cosplay, where male characters are portrayed more by fakeboys than males
>>10194203But I was at LoriConand I don't have the money, to go there a second time
>>10192102Not garbage-chan, but this smells a lot like FJ. We know you're a compulsive liar, but this is just taking it to a new level. Are you also the one pretending to be certain lolitas in order to start drama and make people feel uncomfortable? It's why you're banned in several lolita discords too right? For starting fake ass drama for no reason? God Rih this is really pathetic
>Got dick sucked by friend I met at con>Literally could not feel anything>Didn't cum and got soft like 7 - 10 mins in Is this punishment for all the years of masturbation
>>10194777stop watching porn
>>10194446>Anyone on 4chan that makes fun of either fatties or poorfags who project their financial problems is one of two people I personally know.Stop being a schizo-poster and thinking everyone is some literally-who from your personal comm.
Shit like this annoys me to no end."I want to buy my dream dress, but I need a payment plan and don't scalp it."Same goes for gulls in the dream dress thread that won't buy a dress that was linked to them shortly after posting their dream dress (like if someone finds your dd months later your financial situation could've changed).
Girls who crossplay make characters. There's already a shortage if interesting male characters to cosplay, but for some reason most series that get popular with large male casts end up with all the characters cosplayed by women.In addition the amount of asspats they get for doing it is pretty ridiculous
>looking forward to going to a local con>realize it's going to be full of swarms of cwinge teen BNHA cosplayersoh god oh noit's like fortnite in a gaming event. or the current-year homestuck.
>>10192111>Dealing with drunk 14 year olds stumbling around all weekend is not funthat's where you're wrong anon
>>10194807>There's already a shortage if interesting male characters to cosplayhow does women cosplaying male character relate to a shortage?
>>10195223I just find it annoying when there's a small number of well designed male characters and going through cosplay hashtags, all the cosplays at the top are crossplays
>>10191276Itas and poorfags in lolita fashion. Step up or step out, please. Gyaru would call that shit out and they directly tell people to get good of gtfo. They don't give false asspats and they expect improvement and no excuses. I wish lolitas did that more.
>>10195231Im sure you never looked bad when you started out or had a teen’s income, right? I hate lolitas, man
>>10195236You’re being really forgiving in assuming all those poorfags and itas are teens.
>>10195231that must be why gyaru is dead af these days compared to lolita lol
>>10195241Can you read the word “or”
>>10195244You’re also forgiving in assuming they’re all just starting out. A lot of the ones posted regularly are neither teens nor new.
>>10195236If someone can't do the fashion, why should we include them? Do you also take your Betsey Johnson bag to the luxury handbag forum and your Honda Accord to the Porsche club meets? I don't think so.Yet people still cry when anyone says ’to be lolita, you need to actually wear the fashion ’. Insanity. Or more accurately, a mistaken sense of entitlement.
>>10195246>>10195245Everyone starts somewhere. How do you know peoples experience levels just from looking at a picture on 4chan?
>>10195236Before I could afford the fashion and up until I actually had a proper lolita coord, I did not go to meets. I did not belong there yet! Were my first coords so great? No. But they were at least made up of actual lolita pieces and they followed all of the rules. That is not too much to ask as a basic minimum to be included in the fashion. It should be a requirement before anyone gets a meet invitation.
>>10195248You set your group rules to ’we welcome lolitas to attend the group meets once they have put together their first full lolita fashion coordinate’. Why is that even a question? It should be a given.
>>10195246Stupid analogies. Price and level of luxury doesn’t make something more lolita than something else. No you don’t bring your Honda to the Porsche club, just like you don’t bring Bodyline to an AP meet. But you can bring your Honda to the car club, just like you can bring Bodyline to the lolita meet.
>>10195248Lurk moar newfag. Plenty of people in the CoF and ita threads are people who we know have been in the fashion for years.
>>10195260I don’t browse your stupid threads. “itas” like the post says doesn’t imply only non-newbies.
>>10195253You need an actual lolita coordinate to attend a lolita fashion meet though, and judging by some of the ita messes we are seeing decked out in loliables head to toe, that where a lot of the feeling of wanting to gatekeep comes from. That crap is not even lolita.

I don’t really care how petty this sounds but what really grinds my gears is when “aspiring models” who have nothing to do with jfashion or have any interest in anything hosted at a convention apply and get chosen to be models for fashion shows. There are countless of normie fashion shows you could go for. Modeling for a brand is an honor and a true experience for people who actively participate in the fashion. To these normal people, it’s just another thing to add to their portfolio and the coordinates are just clothes.
There’s been a loooot of reddit spacing on here recently.
tween twerps with ADDthose stupid "ace" or "pan" buttonsoff-topic cosplays IE comic cosplays at an anime conI wouldn't object to a con having lots of pointless 18+ panels just to boot twerps.>>10192652just talk with people, you can kinda get the gist of somebody by just chatting, just don't bring up anything controversial and you'll have a fun time.
>>10195398What do they even do if they’re chosen? It’s not like they have wigs or shoes.
>>10195438Shut up and give me your lunch money dweeb
>>10195398They're models, they model things. It doesn't mean they have to normally wear the things they're wearing at a show. Designers want a certain look for their models and find people who fit that.Drop your sour grapes honey.
>>10191297>>10192315as long as you're in decent shape and don't smell like cheetos and bad bo you can hook up. more so at anime (for some reason. i get a little bit freaked out by the 'sempai' stuff, but hey hot chick wanting sex is awesome).found out couple years back that groups of girls make a game out of it to see who can the most sex.it's the main reason i joined a gym (boosted my confidence, so that's a plus).
>>10195701You....don’t know how lolita modeling works, do you?
>>10195716Sounds like you're just pissy you didn't get chosen desu
>>10195701Found the newfag
>>10195701>>10195764While yes you’re right, designers want a certain look. Having the choosing pool get flooded by normie models lowers your chances to even be SEEN as an option. And fuck yeah I’m pissed off and salty about it. I have been in many shows so I know my look is good enough to be a model for brands. But this year 90% of the fashion show was done using regular VOGUE-esque runway models who knew nothing of the fashion and couldn’t pose/walk for shit despite having the experience. Why? Because they’re not lolitas. Working with a brand is one of the most rewarding feelings you can have as a lolita. It is an honor to have them dress you and help with last minute prep like tying your bows or fluffing your petticoat. I think it’s really low that a regular model would venture as far as going to an anime convention to model for BABY because they just wanted another fashion show under their belt. The intention is not the same, the experience is not the same. Hence why:>it grinds my gears
>>10195398Models model. I hate to burst your bubble anon, but burando clothes are just clothes to a lot of lolitas too. I'd much rather see an experienced model modeling a brand release than some weeb-lita living out her burando modeling dweem. 9 times out of 10 they are shitty models. >>10195462Borrow them. >>10195716Lolita modelling works by the designer choosing the least terrible of the volunteer photos and literally praying for decent posture and the ability to take direction. Source: several con model wranglers in despair.
>>10195797Sounds like you are completely fetshizing this. Ew.You are not ’working with a brand’, you are literally a free volunteer clothes hanger. Feeling ’honored’ to have them dress you is deluded and if you are literally speaking of needing help to get your look right for a show then you are quite a shitty model who can't get things right for themselves. Fantasy much? Holy shit if I were designer id 100% prefer a vogue-esque model to one who felt like you are describing. No wonder 90% chose that if people like you are the other option. No thanks!
>>10194801it's not a dream dress if you aren't willing to buy it for a dumb ass price 2 seconds after it's posted. If it's a dd you keep money on the side waiting for it to appear. Its a DREAM item after all.
>>10194777Posting off topic sex shit and throwing the word con in there so mods don't ban you. I wish normies lives and feelings didn't revolve around sex.
>>10192328typically I don't go for relationships at cons. Been there, done there. Way too many con-goers are pretty unhinged. It's better to date a pseudo-normie who is interested in cons and reel them into going. >>10192342I don't really consider myself a terf but I wouldn't date someone who is trans, even post-op trans. I've been pursued a few times by trans women and a lot of lesbian identifying trans women are uninterested in transitioning or even presenting, so I just don't do that
>>10195825NAYRT but don't lie anon, you're just mad because it was a guy. The feels thread is half depression half tfwnogf posting. That being said, it should not be in this thread>>10193517thisKDA is easily the most "patreon thot looking to cash in on quick popularity bux" cosplay trend since bowsette or zerotwo. It's so bad that I've seen dedicated "KDA only" photoshoots, separate from "league of legends"
