Is it ok to go barefoot to a con?
>>10273976sounds gross and uncomfortable, wear flipflops or something easy to take off and when you want to take accurate pics you can take them off? if you're real dedicated to accuracy
>>10273976i'd say no but take them off for photos if you really want to
>>10273976No, it's gross and you'll get infections or fungi. Make yourself some invisible shoes with clear shoe inserts and bra straps, keep your bare feet for the photoshoot.
If the con has a carpet it shouldnt be too badI mean Ive seen other people walk around barefoot at cons so its not unheard of
>>10274031>you'll get infections or fungimost of the ground isn't a restroom.
>>10273976No, that’s fucking disgusting
>>10273976You shouldn't (for your own safety), at least bring slippers or some other shoe you can take off quickly for photos
>>10274052But people who walk through restrooms don't wash their shoes before exiting. Sure, a lot of the ground isn't that dirty, but over a whole day of walking through and around the con you're bound to step into something nasty.
>>10274062This is essentially my opinion too. I love walking barefoot and at some events you actually can because they banned glass for example. However cons are usually in urban areas where such precautions can't be made. The streets can be a lot more dangerous for your feet, so yeah. For your own safety, I'd wear something easy to slip off for pics.
>>10274066Properly callused feet have a strong barrier against infection. Nothing is going to enter the body unless you have a deep cut.
only if you want a staph infection
>>10273976no , think of the gross stuff that get smeared on the pavement, convention floor
Are your shoes covered in shit when you go to a con? Then why would feet be any different.It doesn't affect you anyway if someone wants to go barefoot
>>10274052>>10274126Do u know how germs work
>>10274207Do you? Walking on a sidewalk or a convention hall or a hotel lobby isn't going to give you a fungus or infection. It isn't the right environment for those sorts of things to grow, too dry, too many cleaning chemicals.
>>10274212This. Especially on a hot day. There would need to be a substantial level of bacteria or spores present in the first place (unlikely) and they would need to survive the harsh environment and then somehow find their way into your system, which bacteria can't do unless there's a skin break. Fungus can take hold more easily, but you just aren't going to pick it up in large quantities outside of a very damp and high traffic area such as a shower room.People in many parts of the world go barefoot, it ain't no big deal.
>>10274219what about parasites? or those bugs that grow in flesh? i think they're called melon worms or something?
>>10274227Most parasites are transmitted from skin to skin or hair to hair direct contact. You can get scabies from sharing clothes but that's very different from just walking around.Think of all the bare surfaces you touch with your hands.
>>10273976im not gonna sit here and tell people what they cant and cant do but i side eye in disgust everyone i see barefoot at cons.
>>10274415They're just feet, anon. Everyone has them, including you.
>>10274431And everyone shits but I don't want to watch it
>>10274052Stray dogs, cats, and homeless people poop and piss all over convention center grounds.
Ok but what if the ground is super hot? People have gotten burns on the soles of their feet from walking on the sidewalk. And what about sharp objects?? There’s drunk people everywhere, what if someone stomps on your foot? Shoes aren’t only there for show, they are meant to protect you.
>>10274922how did we survive for millions of years without shoes?
>>10274922what if the floor is lava?what if bees are attracted to you after you step in someones gum?
You don't go barefoot in public areas, most places prohibit it. What makes conventions different? There's even the invisible shoe method, there's no point in going barefoot.
>>10275050Agreed, there’s just no point in risking potential injury to not wear shoes. Wear clear crocs, or something.
>>10275050There's no law against it in most outdoor spaces, only indoor places have such rules>>10274922as someone who grew up in the country, big kek. That's what calluses are for
>>10275076Conventions are more often than not indoors.
>>10274227you're not going to get melon worms at the fucking baltimore convention center
>>10275050>most places prohibit itlmao where? I'd love to see the laws you have on the books so I know what dystopian shithole I need to stay away from.
boy there sure are a lot of foot fetishists trying to rationalize not wearing shoes at a con in this thread
>>10275107do you seriously think everyone who goes barefoot to a con has a foot fetish?
>>10275107Right? If you’re going to cosplay a barefoot character use clear shoes. There’s absolutely no point in cosplaying barefoot. These scrotes should just admit they like feet>>10275098Restaurants, stores, all public places >>10275076Conventions are mainly indoors
>>10275098>dystopian future>being forced to wear shoesWhat a simple life you must lead where that’s dystopian
>>10273976Not if your feet look like that.
>>10275107>have foot fetish>don't think anyone should go barefoot to a con
do you honestly think girls go barefoot at cons just to appeal to foot fetishists?
>>10275098Does it really matter if it's an actual law or not when the vast majority of businesses can and will turn you away for not wearing shoes?
If you don't mind foot fungus or getting stepped on by an alt-girl with her brick platform shoes then by all means do it.
>>10273976There are online tutorials for "invisible" sandals you can make to seem barefoot in photos while still protecting your feet for a Moana or Luffy character who goes shoeless.ex:https://www.andsewingishalfthebattle.com/invisible-shoes/
>>10275098There is now lawBut establishments reserve the right to turn away anyone as long as it not on the grounds of race, religion, gender, disabilityDo remember that Conventions and Hotel are also used by many professionals/businessmen. Establishments want to maintain acertain standard of clientele
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BK1kd6BSAzYbarefoot has many benefitsconsider that shoes are unnatural and we evolved millions of years without the need for them
>>10275457People's foot shapes are actually super warped due to wearing shoes. Tribes of people who have never worn shoes have more spread-out toes and no useless hammer toes or squashed pinky toes.
>>10275462The shoes are less the problem and more the antiquated and overly standardized lasts that are still used to make them. Shoes should really have far more customization options to fit comfortably and healthily but mass manufacturing has limited that.
>>10274126Enjoy your athlete's foot
>>10273976I wouldn't, I'd wear some flesh colored socks at least.
>>10275462I grew up mostly not wearing shoes and as a result, my feet are wider that they usually make shoes it my size for.
what if you are in body paint then what should you wear to stop it rubbing off?
>>10275492Painting your body is your first mistake, wearing colored tights saves you money on paint because that's not cheap and application time, and you don't have to deal with it looking patchy or rubbing off.
>>10275550Or using an airbrush machine with mehron paint like every well known cosplayer
>>10275915Everyone I know does paint for the face and chest and tights/bodysuit/armsocks for the rest of the body
>>10275915>>10275933It depends more on whether you're actually wearing it to a event or just doing a photoshoot. Airbrushing everything will give the best look and is a good idea for a photoshoot, but it's not really as practical for a con.>>10275492That said, use a sealer, even for just face paint. There are both purpose made products and diy routes (corn starch/baby powder and hairspray can work in a pinch). Don't be that dick that gets your paint all over.
People do that in conventions all the with or without cosplay. Walking around gets tiring all the time especially at events like cons. I don't think it's weird for the cosplay but bring an extra pair of sandals or something just in case.
>>10275972Does this seal your flesh so that nothing applied to it can get out? I never knew about this, it seems useful so that your makeup doesn't run
>>10276883You know makeup setting spray exists right?
>>10274031Naw, floor germs will be the least of your problems if you step on something pointy and/or rusty. Enjoy your tetanus shots.
>>10276915It's a myth that rust increases risk of tetanus.
>>10274052Speak for yourself
>>10274031I haven't worn shoes in 20 years except to go in restraunts, and to cross hot tarmac, sometimes boots in a briar patch or very cold/snow, cosplaying characters with shoes, and that one time when I got pulled over in Alabama I pulled flipflops out of the glove box and slipped them on because driving barefoot is illegal for some stupid reason in that backward ass state.Never got a foot fungusMy feet stay nice and dry in the sun and don't soak in nasty shoes all day like all the other swamp foots out there.
>>10277507Do you get a lot of creepy foot fetishists attention?
Ya'll gonna get the foot fetish creeps Ya hear?
>>10277556Guys like legs boobs and ass too I guess I should kerp those coveted at all timesOh wait guys also like faces time to hijab
>>10277554NoSometimes I even wear shorts but a leg fetishist hasn't jacked off in front of me in public yet.
Any con with any sense at all requires at least flip-flops or something to cover the soles.
>>10277503Does India even have anime cons?
>>10275176Because it's the most common fetish.Beware
I think it's cool when people go barefoot to a con. Most people don't do it a lot, but it's cool to see cosplayers doing it for the cosplay.I went barefoot to a con once, it hurt a bit in the escalators on the way to the con but was okay. I think people should be allowed to go barefoot, and I've never heard about a con banning it. Would be stupid.
>>10273976well, there is nothing inherently wrong with it, but I wouldn't do it because hygiene.
>>10273976I thought about this a lot for a Yunalesca, and decided I'd probably go with sheer hose and another layer of those tiny nylon footies that are meant to stay hidden in heels. I didn't end up doing the cosplay, but I'd say that is the only acceptable answer short of wearing something temporary except for pictures.
>>10275050It's normal in some countries
>>10273976If you like your feet covered in popcorn butter residue, cola spills and fanboy dribble, yes.
>>10285967I feel like you people are overreacting. When you wear shoes to a con are they covered in crap at the end of the day? I'd guess not. So why different for feet?
>>10285999I wouldn’t want my feet looking like this, it’s nasty
If you’re taking them off for a few minutes while sat down I don’t think it’s too bad, but walking around barefoot in a busy place is just asking for trouble.
>>10285966in countries that cant even afford foot wear maybe
>>10286131if you cosplay Toph its vital for the experience
>>10273976if I cosplayed a character with bare feet I'd probably wear sandals with transparent straps and just take them off for photos or something. Walking around all day with bare feet is kinda nasty.
>>10286131Feet can be washed.
>>10273976Absolutely not, not to mention (people in the PNW) spit on the ground all the time and throw their cigarette butts on the ground. Homelessness is a big issue and people just piss in the streets. Gross
Anyone who says it's gross or disgusting is a mentally ill tranny. Nothing wrong with going barefoot. There people who live such lifestyles, so the haters are obviously dumbfucks who can't into reality
>>10288292>Ground is dirty>don’t want feet dirty“YOURE A TRANNY DUMBFUCK”>ok
Just take them off during photoshootsHaving to be "in character" for the duration of the con is cringe
>>10273976Bro, I've fuckin' trudged through third world countries without shit on my feet and I'm fine.If you're worried about germs and shit, man up you fucking pussy.But if you're worried about if the shut in pussies around you at the con will think your disgusting, then yeah you should put on some flip flops or some shit.God I fucking hate how weak the standard American has become.
>>10289617What if they're a woman?Does that change whether they're a pussy for not wanting to have gross shit on their feet?It may be paranoia but people have gotten flesh eating bacteria resulting in amputations from small cuts in legs and feet that go unnoticed. Highly unlikely but another more common thing is tetanus and the shot you have to get is fucking huge and painful.If they wanna do it sure they can but it isn't crazy that people would rather wear shoes out in public than not.
>>10289617>HERES WHAT I WENT THROUGH>I fucking hate how weak the standard American has become.So.. you’re mad because we aren’t in a third world country? Or you’re mad because we prefer basic hygiene?
>>10289617As someone living in and has visited other third world countries -- why the hell. Why did you have to go barefoot, or is that a weirdo tourist thing?
>>10288292I agree about the point that there are people who live such lifestyles. I've known two different people who always went barefoot everywhere, at least until it became very cold outside for one of them, and the other one went barefoot into the winter, and only stopped when tiny, pointy rocks were frozen into the ice making them into spikes.I respect doing that, and it's so true, people are dumb. >>10289617 also said it right, you are a pussy and Americans (and people of other countries) are so pathetic and dumb.>>10289622Woman changes nothing. One of the two people I knew was a woman. There's no natural law that says women have to be weak pussies.It's okay that people wear shoes in public, but don't disrespect the people who don't.
>>10289617>Bro, I've fuckin' trudged through third world countries without shit on my feet and I'm fine.>If you're worried about germs and shit, man up you fucking pussy.this Is one privileged take from whats probably a day tourist. I am lowkey insulted as someone who actually grew and lived in a 3rd world country (Philippines)News flash: being barefoot outside the house is not the norm here. You might see some barefooted people in the streets, but its usually kids who come from really LOW rungs of society who cant afford to have a new change of clothes. I bet they would be happy to have footwear
>>10289778To add, just because we live/lived in a poor country doesnt mean its okay for us to step on human piss, dog poop, pigswill and carcass
>>10289663>or is that a weirdo tourist thing?yt tourists want to pretend being “open minded” and “ woke” by ~living like the locals~Like boo, get your pictures and just gtfo
>>10289769Nothing is wrong with them wanting to go barefoot, but it isn't being a pussy to care about not getting things caught in your feet or just not wanting to step in other people's trash. This is a convention center floor. People will spill things and drop things and there will be city grime and dirt I imagine. Not wrong to like having feet bare but also not pussy behavior to want to avoid stepping directly on the potential trash with your bare feet either. Just imagine a city like LA where human excrement is everywhere, then imagine comic con and walking around where people's shoes could be covered in all that crap. Sure you can be "tough" and deal with it but why bother when you can just keep flip flops on (even clear ones that don't show up in photos) instead and not step in all that crap?
>>10289617This post is insensitive to the actual people living in those countries with numerous people suffering from ringworm, tetanus, leptospirosis, elephantiasis, dengue etc... because unbelievable poverty could afford them cheap flip flops to protect themBut this privileged tourist wants too look ~TOUGH~ and ~BRAVE~ by choosing to go barefoot to stunt on his peers
>>10289847Japan is different though. They're actually clean.
>>10274126Actually there’s a type of parasitic worm that will burrow through your skin, enter your blood stream, find its way to your lungs, then burrow through to your esophagus so that they can enter your intestines and soak up your digested food. Entering the body through the feet is what they’re known for.They’re not common in more developed nations due to the prevalence of shoes but in some populations where shoes are uncommon the infection rate can be as high as 100%.
>>10280225>https://www.andsewingishalfthebattle.com/invisible-shoes/what a horrible and obviously fetishistic filename
>>10289875f... what’s it called I’m terrified
>>10289906Were you implying this person used the invisible shoes from the linked tutorial or did you not notice it being posted upthread twice already?
>>10275098what is no shoes no service? >>10286144or you know the ones who wont cater to the poor or hippies>>10289875you get them from stepping in shit that has the worm, not through flooring
>>10289617Cons are dirtier than third world countries
>>10274052Dislodging a fungal infection is way harder than avoiding one all together. Wear sandals or flip flops.
>>10275123even in the game theyre actual boots arent they?
>>10274052wut? are there truly no cons in san francisco?
Okay I know you may not think the ground is *that* dirty but.. birds shit on the ground, dogs to too, people spit on the ground, germs get tracked from public restroom floors, not to mention shoes are meant for protection. I don't know about you but I don't want a drunk congoer smashing my toes with their demonias. If you don't want to wear shoes, you don't have to, but be aware that everyone who is wearing shoes is tracking around a lot of E. Coli and other bacteria that can lead to fungal infections like >>10290475 said. And yeah, you're not eating with your feet, there's no reason to constantly wash them, but just know that most people like to avoid skin contact with fecal matter and other germs. Not to mention that dirty feet in cosplay pictures are nasty as fuck.
>be me>go to anime con>walk around hotel barefoot >develop plantar warts
I assume you walk around beaches barefoot? You know what kinds of (literal) crap are there?
>>10291089> are there truly no cons in san francisco?Wondercon left for Anaheim. And the replacement con is held on silicon valley
>>10289622women should be the ones going barefoot
>>10296681It’s a hall shot? Is she supposed to take them off and then quickly put them back on in the middle of the dealers room?
>>10273976more than acceptable
hmmmm these feet are pretty filthymaybe it depends on which con you go to how dirty the floor is
Most people wear shoes and take them off for pictures. Somewhere there's a picture of me holding my friend's shoes in the background looking like an absolute beta.
why do people here think it's nasty... the soles of your feet can be washed off, its like 6 cubic inches of skin that touches the floor, unless you have open wounds it is not like anything you step on will go anywhere else other than that tiny area of skin. just bring a disinfectant wipe in case you do step on something gross.
No. For several reasons.>unsanitary. You may get an infection or fungi>you may get hurt or step on sharp objects>if you get hurt, you may be able to legally sue the con you are attending, hence why it is against con's policy to go barefoot>feet get sweaty and you are exposing others to your feet sweat. Inconsiderate and gross.>no shirt, no shoes, no service. You will be denied entry into the con by staff.
>>10305943Not that I disagree with you, but how sweaty can your feet get if you're already barefoot? Foot stank is the result of being trapped in a sweaty shoe all day, right?
>>10275915I cosplay the joker regularly and always ALWAYS airbrush and seal that shit. I use armsocks or tights if I do like the vacation joker but if my arms and hands are showing, airbrush it. Water based paints are liable to sweat off or run if it rains, and cream/grease paint get literally everywhere and both are hard to get solid.
>>10306060nta but that's not how sweating works. you don't get to pick where you sweat from or anything. i get really sweaty easily, mainly from feet, hands and pits, but i'm definitely not wearing gloves and socks and shit at home all day to do it.
you Americans are so weird about taking off your shoes. (you dont even take them off inside your house) there's really nothing wrong with it, or is your immune system that bad? in facts, it's healthy to let your feet breathe once in a while. I walk around barefooted all the time at home and outside around my house and it's the best feeling to be rid of those crampy shoes and socks>>10276915I'm sorry you don't get your vaccinations for tetanus in America.... (pic from google)
>>10292860you.... don't take off your shoes at the beach?wow ok princess
>>10309896Tetanus shots I've heard are very painful and usually not neccesary until AFTER you step on something rusty unless you're in certain circumstances. People in the US rarely need to get them from what I know because we don't have as much exposure to random rusty shit piercing our skin in everyday life.
YechDont walk barefoot outside
>>10309896>(you dont even take them off inside your house)says who?
>>10309968n-no it's a vaccine, you have to take it before you get exposed to something rusty. It's not really painful, just a standard shot and afterwards the spot might feel a bit sore but not really bad.I'm from West-Europe so I think our living conditions are about the same. You can easily come into contact with rust, even in your own backyard.
>>10274227>or those bugs that grow in flesh? i think they're called melon worms or something?They are called Mangoworms and the flies that lay them only live in africa.>>10289875>>10289958>>10290149Those are caused by hookworm infection, though they normally just stay in the colon and eat blood/your shit/food.
>>10309969I'm gonna need more examples.
>>10309896yeah the panic is weird. people in my country love going barefoot in public, and most offices i have worked in have been fine with it too. i dont go barefoot much myself but i have never heard of anyone dying from going barefoot
>>10310222I think the reason it was painful, is because it was not the vaccine but something they give you afterwards? In my country they give the vaccine to everyone, it's even standard in schools to give it to all children and I've never heard anyone complain about it being that painful.I didn't think about the cost though because medicine (and especially the recommended vaccinations) is very cheap in my country. I understand now why you guys wouldnt get the shot.>>10310402You get to go barefoot to office? thats pretty cool, they usually don't allow that here. May I ask what country are you from?
Shoefags are fucking weirdos.
>>10274048thats worse. people who go to cons are generally gross and unkempt (not the cosplayersusually). the carpet traps eveyones foot fungus. barefoot is disgusting in public
>>10273976guess it would depend on the rules of the place? If its in character sounds like a legitimate reason. I'm in favor of women being barefoot all the time to be honest.And she has nice and healthy looking feet.>>10274927Pretty much this. Unless its freezing or too hot or the ground is too rough. From personal experience you get used to it after awhile and your feet toughen up.>>10286131Comes off with soap and water. Also If you go outside barefoot often its like your skin gets used to it or something and then less black stuff sicks.
>>10290925lol play the first game.
>>10275098wear some fucking shoes you troglodite
>>10280508wtf is wrong with her eyes
>>10288292why stop at feet? why not going around bareassed? it's not like you rub your butt on the ground, so why do you even need pants?
>>10312929not sure where you've been the last 15 years but going bareassed at cons is commonplace
>>10273976Yes, of course it is, only Americans would have a problem with this because of their warped issues about hygiene and the human body.
The risk isn't hygene, it's clumsy fat nerds accidently stepping on your unprotected foot. I got two broken toes some years ago thanks to some over-weight bumblefuck dressed as Sasuke.
>>10313776>only AmericansR E N TF R E E
>>10274052>most of the ground isn't a restroomKek, have you even been to nyc?
>>10313028That's NYCC right? That shit's in october, don't people get cold?
>>10275076I can't imagine actually wanting calluses. They're irritating.
>>10275182To appeal? No, but you know someone's going to jack off to them later.
>>10277933Can I be the first?
>>10319021no worse than jacking to your boobs, butt, legs, face etc.unless you wanna keep them covered too
I like that her shoes are in the pic
>>10273976>that chubby bellyWoah mama
>>10275107Footfag here. Barefooters should have their feet stepped on and most footfags should be pushed into traffic.
>>10321175What makes you think you are better than the rest of the footfags?
>>10321190Same thing that makes girls think they're different from other girls. He doesn't behave like the vocal minority who shitpost on the internet. 95% of footfags are regular people who know how to behave in public.
>>10321190Imagine you like women. Someone comes over and says "Hey, I heard you like women, so here's a few pictures" and proceeds to post hags and hambeasts. Immediately a pack of howling retards start screaming "OMG I LOVE WOMANZ! MOAR! MOAR!", encouraging the initial person to continue posting the stuff of vomit. Every time and everywhere until the fetish becomes any-woman-will-do, and it's relevant places and galleries become a photo collection of circus freaks and Resident Evil rejects.At some point the cycle repeats itself, only this time the someone posts pictures of naked ugly women just standing there with nothing going on whatsoever. Like a Loomis proportion reference. And the howling retards again get excited over it until it becomes a thing. Also every time this happens, the howling retards make remarks like "I want to lick her bacteria-laced sweat" and "I want to sniff her bullybutton".This is how most footfags are. They lust after every malformed chernobil foot they see. They want to sniff stench, and suck toes like toddlers. Sole pics are like staring at a medical reference diagram.God damn fuck those disgusting guys and also fuck the creeps who take their private interest out in the public.
>>10321251The people you're describing are the 5% that >>10321216 is referring to.That said, if you're a self-professed footfag and you don't like looking at feet or sucking toes or smelling or any of that then what the fuck do you do?
>>10273976I need to kiss her tummy>and cover up her foreheadplease tell me she's over 18
>>10275123>do you seriously think everyone who goes barefoot to a con has a foot fetish?why isn't that obvious to everyone?
>>10321421Smellfags are disgusting. Sucking toes is fine.I like tits and want to suck them but I dont wanna sniff them.
>>10310310Good lord I want that ass on my face
>>10273976If you're concerned something like these might work.
>>10286156You could make foam Brick/Stone sandals "in action" like when she Earthbends.Or if you're taller, make a fake foot on top of an earth mound cover and wear skates on your real foot.
>>10321598most women are repulsed by foot fetishists why would they try and attract them at a con
Don't fall for the bare foot fag lies. There is bad shit on the ground like Racoon Parasite Eggs and flesh eating bacteria in downtown LA sidewalks. America isn't Japan.
>>10289847Japanese people love cleaning that even school children help the school janitor clean the school. There are probably more janitors in Japan than america
>>10286177You could probably bring a big picnic blanket to lay on the ground or floor that can be washed latet
>>10273976People in this thread post about Athlete's foot but you all are forgetting about viruses. Which virus is most responsible for body warts outside of sex and because of sex? HPV! That's right. Besides worrying about fungus a virus like HPV can give you a permanent body warts like on your feet that may never go away despite cryogenic treatment. /fit/ had posters catching HPV foot wart from going barefoot at the gym due to being lazy and they heavily regret going barefoot at the gym
I did it once and i'll never do it ever againDon't
>>10329504Care to explain why?
>>10319483Sexy af im jerking my cock to her sexy feet as you read this!!!
>>10275176>>10279993>Because it's the most common fetish.Oh, you wish.
>>10275098Man, you're retarded.
>>10275107I have a female foot fetish but I would strongly recommend people who are wearing costumes of a barefoot character to just get some slip-on, nude colored covers. The kind girls wear inside flats, where they barely cover the toes. Barely noticeable and if you absolutely just must take them off, they’ll stuff easily into a pocket or waistband invisibly, and after the pic you can put them back on. Much better than walking all day barefoot in public areas.
>>10275176Don’t people shit from their asses?>>10339619No... It
>>10339619Nobody asked for your opinion.
>>10273976no, never. i thought these bitches learned their lesson when they cosplayed L back when Death note was the big thing
>a perv groped my foot at a con!Said no one ever
No fuck off
This is the thread that will not die
>>10345165Honestly good. The threads that make people uncomfortable are the best.
>>10274927Concrete holds heat much more than dirt
bare feet in the snow, that's dedication
>>10275480That is a condition from being in sweaty/moist tight fitting shoes. You are the retard, anon.
>>10346098Fake news. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzXMKeUv8MU
These threads are made by foot fetishists trying to fish out more cosplay feet pics.
>>10346425>doesn't know people also get it from walking around in bare feet where other people who have it walk around barefoot.
>>10346895While this is true the bacteria needs a suitable environment to grow and spread and your average carpeted floor or sidewalk isn't it. It thrives in warm, damp environments like communal showers which is why they tell you to wear sandals.>>10346787Shame it isn't working very well.
>>10280508>wacom 480wow does she play osu too??
>>10353018Well that's japan it's a lot cleaner then America which is filled with heroin needles.
(ignore the girl with her ass hanging out)Look at that, just casually walking around in bare feet. If you saw that at a con is it apporopriate to have a word with them about hygiene?
>>10353832I'd have a word with her about having permission to lick those feet of hers
Can feet spread Corona?
>>10289858>Dirty people and unsanitary ground don't exist in JapanLOL JAPAN IZ PERFECT JUST LIEK MAI ANIME SO BASED XD XD
I've never had a problem with going barefoot at cons.BUT... I have seen those cute little leather-strapped blown-glass bottles bought from the Steampunk Accessories dealer dropped in the hotel lobby by the elevators. Nasty little shards everywhere. Drunks (the cons I go to allow drinking) have dropped bottles to. So, watch where you step.
>>10327010- Free Stuff
>>10286156>bear feetyou sure did, missy... you sure did.
>>10273976instead of asking 4chan use your own brain to think about it for a few seconds
>>10274031Fellow foot fetishist here. I have to agree with this. Wear flip-flops and if you have to take a pic but have to be barefoot, do it in a place that you think it's much more clean.
>>10273976yes>t. a footfag
>>10344927they're usually too confused or oblivious to realize what i've just done to them.
>>10310193Nayrt, but also American: my experience has been the same as WHO guidelines, you get vaccinated several times when you're little then another one every 10 years. It might just be my pitiful pain tolerance, but Tdaps from when I was 11 and 21 hurt like a bitch during AND after. The nurse even had me say a tongue twister for the former, presumably as a distraction.Anyway, the "shot" they're talking about that you get when you're already injured (and the one my grandparents and mom threatened me with as a kid) is probably the TIG antibody meds. The only way you're getting an actual inactive tetanus vaccine in the ER is if you didn't get your childhood ones.
>Could possibly step on something harmful like a meth needle especially in large citiesYes Anon its perfectly fine
Since there are apparently a lot of footfags in this topic, I guess now is a good a time as any to ask this: Who are some good cosplay feet photogs to follow?The only photog I know of that posts a lot of this sort of thing is Everage, but there have to be more out there.
>>10368997what kind of cons do you go to that have meth needles lying around on the floor?
>>10369384Not that anon but SakuraCon is full of them.
Why the fuck is this thread still going?
>>10286156I don't see any paws, I think she's a liar.
>>10274927We lived to 25 or 30.
>>10370404Because it's funny to watch anons like (You) get upset over it.
>>10372080Only on average, which was brought down significantly by infant mortality. Even a million years ago, if you made it past childhood you had a high likelihood of surviving long enough to have grandchildren assuming you didn't get killed by someone or something larger and meaner than you.
>>10380168Those toes are so cute and delicious. I would love them in my mouth if they weren't so dirty.
>>10273976Bare foot is legal. What's the problem?
>>10347046kek, I also use this for osu
>>10383553I'm sure pouring a pot of boiling water on yourself is also legal. That doesn't mean it's a good idea.Going barefoot to a con is gross and not safe. You're asking to get athlete's foot, stabbed with a hypodermic needle, a broken toe when another cosplayers tramples on your foot by accident, cut open with a piece of broken glass...baka just wear some flip-flops and pull them off for photos.
>>10372080thats a myth
>>10383553It's fucking gross that's the problemCement gets hot and con floors are filthy.
>>10286156>bear feetAnime people are so damn stupid
>>10275123>>10321598No the people who go barefoot aren't the fetishists. The fetishists are the people who try to justify it as normal. Walking around barefoot in a con is just as bad as walking barefoot in the city streets.It's like a straight man going, haha come on guys we evolved without clothes, why can't women go bare breasted in the streets it's nature n-not a fetish.
>>10286188>Just wash off the Tungiasis, Fungal infection, MRSA, and Hookworms bro. My dick NEEDS to see grubby gamer girl feet NOW
>>10273976This Chel costume isn't even accurate
>>10274927By walking barefoot our whole lives and developing the necessary muscles and callouses. You can't just take off your shoes and expect to be okay.
it's unhygenic and no one wants your gross bare feet slapping around in public.If you need bare feet for your cosplay, just use this tutorial so there's at least something between you and the floorhttps://www.andsewingishalfthebattle.com/invisible-shoes/
>>10273976Yes.Except in New Jersey, where it's explicitly illegal. You can go nude in New Jersey, but you better have slippers on.
>>10274765so don't, stop whining about something you can avoid looking at anon
>>10273976Only if you’re a ‘jogger’.
>>10353046Also, you can see her shoes beside her, so she probably just took it off to take pictures.
>>10387318Is your immune system compromised?
>>10274212lol you think they use cleaning chemicals on floors? carpets are vaccuumed. spot treatment if theres a spill or stain. concrete floors they'll use dust mops or zambonis with pretty much water. (if that, )
>>10310310You gonna eat that?
>>10318947It's been stupid hot in NY the past few Octobers around the time of NYCC, and the show floor is normally hotter then it is outside.
It is definitely not worth it. If you want barefoot pics for your barefoot character, do it in a private shoot setting, not where there is high foot traffic.Also not everyone is into feet, having to ser ugly hairy feet in open toe sandals is bad enough
So this guy has many pics of girls at cons standing on him, sitting on him etc.I mean how does that even work, does he just ask random girls? Why do they do it?
>>10273976Why people always bump this thread?
>>10401186I’d do it if he paid me. As long as he’s not touching me in any other way, I’d be fine with something like that.
>>10401186If he approached me with a good reason why he wanted the photo, and was gracious, not pushy, and not being sexual or leering, I’d totally do it.People like to take funny photos. And at most cons I’m half-drunk and ready to do stupid shit.
>>10401292Is there a nice way to ask to pay a girl to step on you that doesnt involve being kicked from the con?
>>10405045Same way everyone solicits creepy shit from strangers:Offer more money until they relent. You'll probably end up overpaying at first because you're most likely a slimy bitch with no tact but you'll get better at it eventually.
>>10405160FailNinja is a SIMP
>>10289778I lived in a 3rd world country too (Tonga), we prefer barefoot usually but idk about the Phillipines. It rains so much that jandals just get caked in mud and it’s easier to go bearfoot. As for >>10273976Stop being a pussy, nothing will happen except you’ll get weird looks from germaphobes.
Over 200 days old...
>>10273976What if she steps on a hobo shit.
I dream of the day this thread finally dies
>>10273976All I can say is be careful around escalators. I once sliced my big toe open misjudging where my foot was while wearing flip-flops.
>>10412151it will persist until the image cap is reached. you know what needs to be done.
>>10273976Yeah you're the one tearing up and dirtying your feet why would I care lmao
bring flip flops in case you hurt your feet or are leaving the con
>>10412168Escalators are wonders for the everyman until they aren't.
>>10419967This... isn't even cosplay, anon. Step it up.
>>10360515Are you retarded or just pretending that Japan is notprobably the cleanest country except for maybe singapore but that hardly count because they're a city state?Unless you're going to Roppingi on a Saturday night, you would be fine to walk around most of Tokyo barefoot. You'll probably be stopped by police asking if you're okay and where your fucking shoes are, fucking gaijin. But Japanese streets are free from debris and needles.
Going barefoot to a con is entirely dependent on you. As long as they don’t have a rule against it, it will be fine. However, there are quite a few things about going barefoot that most people overlook. If you’re the kind of person who regularly walks around barefoot, then you won’t have any issues, but if you wear shoes all the time, then there a lot of things that you need to take into account.First of all is just how comfortable you are going barefoot. If you have very sensitive feet, then you will want to practice walking barefoot just so you get used to it. You may experience muscle soreness after a while, chapped skin, or you will just get fatigued from it.If you have worn shoes all your life, then there are habits to how you walk that don’t translate well to walking barefoot. You can tell if someone doesn’t walk around barefoot regularly by how awkwardly they walk. Walking in shoes, we tend to get lazy and walk heel first. When walking barefoot, you need to walk on the balls of your feet instead, almost in a tip-toe walk. This is a more natural style of walking when not wearing padding under your feet, and will feel more comfortable. You will also want to lift your feet off the ground higher than you regularly would in shoes. It’s easy to accidentally brush your feet along the ground when walking which may lead to cuts or scratches if there’s something on the ground. Also pay attention to where your walking more closely so you don’t step on anything or stub your toe. Make sure that when you set your foot down, you’re setting it straight down to prevent scratching yourself. You can tell when someone isn’t used to being barefoot when you see them walk with a heel strike and they kind of stumble around and have an uneven gait for the above reasons so make sure to practice.
Try going to a park, or a track, and walk/jog around on the grass to get a sense for how it feels and how your legs/feet move when barefoot. Then move onto different surfaces depending on what’s available to you (sand, soft/hard packed dirt, asphalt, etc) and practice walking with a forefoot strike and get comfortable with it. Of course wash your feet when you’re don’t, but also, pay attention to your body the next day as you may be using muscles that you haven’t used as much previously. You may have sore calves and arches, small scratches on your feet that you didn’t notice previously or slight bruising. Adjust your style of walking and practice until you can do it comfortably without too much soreness.Finally, make sure to just take care of your feet in general. If you have feet in good condition, then people don’t really think about them, but if they’re nasty, then it’s like a big ugly mole on your face – it’s the only thing people will see when they look at you and they will be disgusted. Trim your nails, or get a pedicure. Use a pumice stone to remove any rough spots/dead skin on your feet. Put lotion on regularly to make sure that they are properly moisturized. The day of, make sure to keep them dry as moisture will attract dirt and debris. Bring along a cloth and some baby wipes so you can clean and dry them regularly. Finally if you still aren’t sure, bring a pair of slippers that you can wear if it becomes too much for you at any point.
Since this thread obviously has a lot of feetfags in it I'll go ahead and ask the question:Who are some cosplay foot photogs to follow?Only one I know of is Everage, but there's gotta be more out there.
>>10422059Jesus christ what the fuck is that face. Looks like a toy.
One thing that people always like to throw out is that you will get fungus, or ringworm, or athletes foot going barefoot.No you won’t. It’s not possible. You can definitely get it if you take off your shoes, walk around barefoot and put them back on though.Why?Because Fungas, Ringworm, athletes foot all require a warm, dark and damp environment to grow and take hold. This is basic science, you all should know this.What is warm, dark and damp? Shoes.You can’t catch anything if you go barefoot and stay barefoot. Don’t put shoes on after you have taken them off.
>>10425013What makes you such an expert? What happens if you step on any of those when it’s just chilling on the ground?
Holy shit this thread is old.
Only times I’ve been barefoot at a con have been at waterpark cons and even then I put on flip flops until I was in the actual waterpark part of the hotel
>>10425013this is fucking dumb, animals that wear NOTHING regularly get fungal skin infections. you're more likely to be -exposed- to fungi in warm, damp environments, but your body is warm enough to support plenty of fungal life simply by being normal human temperature. there are also other specialized species such as intestinal parasites (hookworms are just one example) which are transmitted to humans through the soles of their feet. i ran around barefoot all the time as a kid, but it's ignorant, disingenuous bullshit to suggest that it's just risk free.
The hell is going on in this thread. I couldn't do bare feet because I'm afraid of stepping on something that cuts me.
>>10292841>plantar wartsTHATS THE NAME.I HAD THIS IN 5TH GRADE SHIT SCARRED ME FOR LIFE
>>10273976This thread is old as fuck wtf this board is dead.
>>10429312>>10430426Big whoop, you're not exactly helping this supposedly "dead" board.
>>10344927Pretty sure I read about a guy going around cons trying to rub girls feet.
>>10430586You know the rules: links or it didn't happen.
Is making the foot part of the costume the experienced cosplayers way of dealing with the problem?
Just a few more posts and this thread finally autosages
>>10431687oh thank god. it's been HALF A YEAR, folks. remember your life when the foot thread first started? before all the virus and blm shit? remember how simple everything was?
feet are gross. cover up footsies
mhmmmhmmm feet are so yummy I wanna cum between the toesies owo
>>10431687There'll be a v2, don't you worry about it.
You ever let the girls breathe after a long hot day of walking around the con?>>10431687Better do my part then>>10431688Admit it, you will miss when this thread is finally dead. Its part of the furniture.
>>10431688>it's been HALF A YEAR, folksIt's been nearly a full year. This thread was started in October and it's late July now. It may not autosage off the board before it's a year old.
>>10442771Yet so far away from version 2.
I wonder what the bump limit on this board is... I hope we can keep this thread for a full year before the second hits
>>10452198310 is the limit. Don't ask why the 10, because who the hell knows.
