Someone had their first alarm at 5am and then like every 10 mins it goes off. They got up after 8am. They didn't even care when people told them to shut it off.
>>10409258lol, sounds like an adhd'erthey cant get themselves up
>>10409251My fucking sasquatch of a friend and I had to share a bed for our first con and he kept turning in his sleep and slapping me all night so I got 25 minutes of sleep and got mugged on my way home.
>>10409251I stupidly let a lolita I met at a tea party at another con room with me for (con redacted). I was planning to stay at the hotel alone, but she asked if I had room for another. I said sure, why not, it'll save me money. Big mistake. This bitch complained that the hotel I picked "sucked", hogged the bathroom for so long I barely had time to shower before we set out for the convention, woke up to make baked fucking potatoes at 3am slamming the damn microwave and robbing me of sleep. Oh, and then ditched me in a dark parking lot before the BTSSB model call at 6am and I had to have some furries help me find where I was supposed to go. Fun!!!
>>10409287Might I add that she shorted me about $80 shy of what I quoted her for her share of the room. I didn't even want to confront her about it because within the first few hours of rooming with her I was mentally checked out from dealing with her
>>10409258A trip did this when I roomed with her lol and then had her text tone going off every 20 seconds when she did get up (everyone else was trying to sleep still)
>>10409288You should've fucked her to assert dominance.
Roommate snored loud enough to hear outside the hotel. She even coughed her sleep. She was aware of it and told me but damn, if I didn't bring my own headphones there was no way I could have gone to sleep on my own.
>>10409296>Roommate snored loud enough to hear outside the hotel. She even coughed her sleepIs she fat? 100% sleep apnea anyways
>be at con>clingy friend from the other side of the country is attending too, haven't seen her in awhile>she has her own hotel arrangement with some people I don't know>i stay in a two-person bedroom with four college friends>bump into clingy friend>she follows my every step around the con like I'm used to of her>ok with it>it becomes night>i want to sleep>clingy friend follows me into already packed hotel room>college friends are already getting ready to go to sleep>'clingy friend, shouldn't you go to your own room?'>claims she forgot where it is>tell her to phone her roommates>claims her phone battery died>tell her to charge it>the charger is in her room>'anon please help me find it'>i walk with her through the hotel for an hour, aimlessly>we get into an elevator>some dude in a wheelchair and a pleather bikini gets in with us and blocks the door>dude starts headbanging and moaning >uncomfortable as fuck>dude leaves>tell my clingy friend fuck this, i'm going back to my room to get some sleep>she follows me to my room, again>i tell her to figure it out on her own>slam door in her faceI felt so bad afterwards but I'm no fucking babysitter. I paid to fucking be there
>>10409370Damn I hate people like that lmaoYou did the right thing
Had a roommate steal my designer shirt from me one year to only return it the next year with bleach stains,it had shrunk, and had pilling all though out it. “Oh by the way there is bleach stains and some other stains on it, sorry bout it” Had to throw the shirt out.Room mate also brought tiny toy figures from the dollar store and scattered them all over con, cuz teehee funny! She was mid thirties and a mother. She declared herself “the big toddler” proudly. Acted like a child the whole con because that was “her cosplay/character” or some bullshit. I heard complaints form hotel staff and attendees alike about the stupid figures. People at that point just started collecting them to throw them away. Later she and her friend think it was so funny to scream-sing loudly at 3am in the hallway then barge open the door to the room where I was trying to sleep. Didn’t fall asleep the rest of the night because she choose to take a shower and sang in the shower loudly. Woke up next morning to find the shower blue and all the towels used up and blue. Her shit hair dye came out and ruined the whole bathroom. Left me to clean up her mess. But the bathtub still was stained blue. I was so dead and done with her shit that I just waited till she and her friend left for the con to go ask for new towels so I could shower in the blue tub and get ready in peace. Horrible con that year for me. Never again did I room with them. Nor will I.
>>10409279Kek I feel this as a fellow adhd gull
>>10409370I don't know if it's just me and my very specific experiences, but when someone makes their phone being dead my problem it usually means I shouldn't get too involved with them
>>10409502>when someone makes their phone being dead my problem it usually means I shouldn't get too involved with themare you autistic?

>>10409637Was your friend that one pastel artist obsessed with venom? Not naming names, but if so now I know not to room with her
From when I was young and stupid:>Unable to room with friends at Youmacon 2014. Can only stay one night instead of the whole weekend.>Ask on the official con forum if anyone can put me up for one night. Someone responds, let’s call him A.>A says he has floor space and we agree on a set amount to pay him.>Day of con arrives. Meet up with A after getting my badge to pay him my share of the room. >First warning sign was that he tried to weasel out of giving me my change. “I thought you were nice and paying me extra.” No, we agreed on a set amount and that's it.>Find out A is not staying in the actual room but acting as “room head.” He is staying in another room.>A lectures me on room rules like a little kid who had never been to an anime con before and to follow them or be evicted. >A takes me to the room and starts bitching about how messy it is.>5 people are staying in the room and it's honestly not that bad. I’ve stayed in messier con hotel rooms over the years.>I get my room key from A and go off to enjoy the con, but not before I see A take two boxes of pocky that don't belong to him.>Later that night I head back to the room to get some sleep and this is when I meet fellow my roommates, who are pretty cool.>We all share our experiences with A and agree that he is a dick and possibly autistic.>Find out that A was being a creeper towards one of the roommates, let’s call her M.>M is asexual and clearly not interested in A. M talks about how A kept hitting on her and trying to touch her when she was trying to arrange her stuff in the room.>At one point A bursts into the room looking for M. We hide her under the bed until he leaves.>Don't see A for the rest of the night.
>>10410080>It's late in the afternoon and I head back to the room to get my suitcase so I can drop it off at my car and then enjoy my last few hours at the con.>A is waiting in the room alone. Someone must’ve let him in because he does not have a room key.>A starts pestering me to room with him again at future cons. I politely turn him down. After the experiences I've had I want nothing further to do with him after the con.>A then starts whining about people not talking to him in his room and how he wants to spend the night in this room instead.>He just wants an excuse to creep on M.>Luckily my fellow roommates arrive and shut his idea down.>I then have to wait for A to leave so I can give my key to one of my roommates because I don't want him to get it.>A dicks around in the room for 20 minutes trying to make awkward conversation while the roommates are trying to change and get their stuff together.>A finally leaves the room so I give the roommates my key and leave.>After the con ends A makes a whiny post on the con's fb about how he wasn’t trying to be a creeper. He had apparently been creeping on other girls besides M that weekend and several people called him out on it.
>>10409477Same. Have you tried meds?That’s the only thing that’s helped me.
Note to the zoomers that ask is 30 too old for cons: This is why having an established job with good pay at 30+ is a godsend. You can now afford a room to yourself to avoid these horror stories.
>>10410133This. I enjoy cons much more that I’m older and am more responsible and have a good income so that I can fully enjoy buying and doing what I want without feeling guilty or without having to go without / sacrifice something else in my normal life for it. It’s so nice being able to treat cons as a leisurely activity.
Stayed at a hotel room paid for by my dude friend's parents, seperate rooms for girls and guys, pretty normal considering we were all teens at the time. The only girls he cared about were me (his best buddy) and his girlfriend, but he told us we could invite whatever friends we we want. so the setup was>Room 1 (girls)one of my friendshis girlfrienda couple of his girlfriend's friends>Room 2 (boys)my dude friend and his friendsdude friend's girlfriend kept using our room to have fucking GANGBANGS with all of his dude friends behind his back, as well as inviting random men from the convention back to the hotel room to fuck.By day 2, everyone has walked in on her doing the old bump and grind with a different man at least once, then hiding under the covers and pretending they were "just cuddling"One dude she kept fucking refused to leave the hotel room in order to let us change into our cosplays. We had an intervention, and by that time even her friends were fucking pissed with her for being a whore. we told her people don't cuddle like that, we all know its bullshit, that's insanely disrespectful to her boyfriend, so on. She told us we were all mean bitches, then left the room to stay in some random guy's room that night.after the convention, I told my dude friend that he should be careful around her, because I don't want him to get hurt. He told me I was a sack of shit, his girlfriend loves him, told me he didn't want to be friends anymore. I didn't tell him about the cheating. skip to a few months later, completely different convention. Whore sees me in an anime convention, and makes a scene. "FUCK YOU! I LOST MY BOYFRIEND AND FRIENDS BECAUSE OF YOU! FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOUUU!" turns out her friends dropped her because of her con thotting, her boyfriend eventually found out about the cheating, and she decided to blame me. The situation escalates, she shoves me, and I honestly just deck her in the face out of reflex. 1/2
>>10410256she called for her friends (all the men she was fucking at the time) to help her because I'm a mean girl who tired to hurt her, and they end up all holding me down while she claws at my eyes, pulls out my hair, and just beats on me as I'm struggling to get free. eventually convention security pulls her off of me, and onlookers who have seen the whole thing took my side, but due to the conflict we both got kicked out.I DO have pictures of my wounds and scratched up bloody face from this, but I'm a bit wary of posting them on 4chan (people actually tried to dox me the first time I posted them for whatever reason)This girl was so pissed at me, that after that event, she started stalking me and setting out her guys to try to attack me, it was a bit surreal. If I was at the mall, I'd see her and the guys she was fucking would start walking at me, if I was at the park? see her, guys would start walking at me. In all honesty, the whole ordeal was traumatic. I was in the process of getting a restraining order, but ended up moving so she's no longer an issue.2/2
>>10409251>22 year old Male>Roommate was female same age>Enjoy first con with her>Good well>Go back every year with girl because she it my girlfriend and trusting strangers around my shit sounds expensiveRooming is retarded
>>10410398Honestly, just sounds retarded.
This tool place years ago at fanimecon in San Jose. I had to call in a favor because I forgot to get a hotel. I forgot because I was in the navy and it slipped my mind. I had a few other things I had to worry about. I decided to call a friend for a favor and asked if i could stay with her and her boyfriend. She said yes and spent the entire time regretting it. She would nonstop talk shit about her boyfriend when he wasnt around. He had other issues to deal with, that made him sad. She would call him a "tampon marine", because he was a reservist in the marine corp. Even though she never served a day in her life. She did fuck a lot of military guys though or guys slated for boot. She would also cuddle with some random guy I've never met and would talk about fucking his brother. I knew the guys brother, because he and I graduated high school together. She just treated him like garbage and later broke up with him. Was stressful.
>>10409640Jesus christ I gagged
>>10410256I can't believe people like this exist. Is she a instagram girl or a casual attendee
>>10410461casual atendee, and I'm going to be honest, she was not cute. I'd say around 3 or 4 out of 10. chronic acne and a birth disorder that made her look a bit messed up. It still baffles me to this day why people would do horrible things for her. but I suppose when she's offering incels free sex they would do anything.
>>10410463Never underestimate incels and neckbeards
>>10410463That's fucking nasty, but I'm not surprised.
>>10410081Deja vu, have I read this before? Anyways, that hella sucks, sorry that happened bro
>>10410256A free hotel room, but at what cost anon
>>10409251Told this story before but it's been a while so here it is again.>Rooming with my coworker and my best friend.>We're all broke college students so we try to find two more roomies.>All our other friends aren't going or have other rooming arrangements.>I end up inviting some girl from my local comm and her girlfriend.>They're both teens who have never been to a con before and bring trash bags full of miscellaneous shit like manga and their homework (that they didn't work on).>They make me, my best friend, and our friends that weren't rooming with us drag the stuff from offsite parking to the hotel room.>Regret.jpeg>The room has one king-sized bed that I share with coworker and best friend while lolita girl and her girlfriend sleep on a blow-up mattress on the floor.>Every morning after we woke up our bed was piled with lolita girl and girlfriend's shit all day, so I couldn't sit or lie down to take a break in the middle of the day.>They absolutely strew their shit all over the damn room - I distinctly remember stepping over a dollar store hot water heater and an opened, uncooked pack of ramen noodles every time I entered the room.>Room is predictably still a wreck on the morning of check out because they refused to tidy up the entire con.>Room is such a wreck that lolita and her girlfriend are still cleaning up their shit by the time coworker, best friend and I had already had continental breakfast down the hall or coffee in the room, gotten completely decked out in our cosplays including makeup, and had packed up all of our luggage.>We waited around for a while for the two to hurry up and get their shit packed, then eventually gave up. Once my air mattress was deflated and packed, we grabbed our shit and bounced, leaving them to clean up their mess.>Stash our shit in our cars and enjoy the rest of the con free of them.>Luckily we have never had to room with them again.
>people who I room with seem to spend the majority of time in room >Their schedule seems to be spending 3 hours putting makeup on, browsing the dealers room for maybe 30 mins, sit in the corner and browse insta or tik tok for another 30 and just go back to room >in the room its a mixture of shit talking and gossiping about a random cosplayer or maybe a photographer who likely has no idea they exist or doesn't mind their existence much and browsing/making tiktoks>Also shit talk other cosplayers they've met and talk to, when meeting up with them their personalities completely change into friendliness and whatnot.>Prob shit talk me too>every fucking time I go back to the room to rest sincr just shit talking a new person or repeating the same thing about some cosplayer they've talked about for 105939 times >at night it's more shit talking, maybe with drinking with some of them complaining about "uuu I can't drink tonight because x reason" and proceeding to passive aggressively make us feel bad for drinking when they can't for the remainder of the night>Whenever I feel bad for leaving them in the room while I go meet up with friends and invite them along, they just bring the fucking mood down, turn a lot of conversations into complaining about something or try to steer a conversation into a pity party for themselves Back at Katsu I was invited to dinner and joined them, we wasted hours waiting for a table and when I wanted to leave because I wanted to see other friends instead of waste more hours, they started giving me a pretty bad attitude instead of just saying "alright problem see u later :)" Noped outta there, and I guess this was the breaking point as I haven't talked to any of them sans one or two of the people I actually like sincr. I'm done, some of the reasons I keep rooming with them is because I feel bad since they're not the best financially and my departure means it'll be harder for them to pay for the room. Also saying "I'm out" is hard.
>>10411193You know what actually, they've sent me some DMs about random stuff but I didn't really give lengthy responses. When spending time with them individually they're actually not too bad, but maybe it's because they probably know I don't like to indulge in their gossip sessions. Man idk
>>10411193Those people just sound like your average toxic pricks to me. Can't let others have nice things because they don't "deserve" it, can't let others have bad things as they had it "worse". Throw them together and they only enable eachother's shitty behaviour. Bonus points if despite all the shit they say they can't handle anyone criticising them and will never let go of ancient shit.Good on you for cutting them out of your life. I did the same a few years back and every event I've been to has been so much better ever since. No more constant negativity, gossiping or nagging about your mental issues. Now it's just the happy squad sincerely enjoying a convention and having a good time.
I have two really bad rooming experiences so I'll post this one first and see how it goes.I was a minor at the time (this is important later) and this was my first time at this specific con since it was local to where my then-boyfriend lived. I was excited to see/meet him irl for the first time. We were rooming with a bunch of his friends and I was the youngest (most of them were 21+, some almost there and bf was 18/19 I think) Anyways, most of the first day went pretty well, nothing too big in my memory that stuck out to me Saturday I remember that my bf kept going places and dipping suddenly. Ok whatever that's okay his roommates were pretty nice to me and we talked and got along. I remember eventually almost all of the people in the room had come in for a bit (minus bf) and then left for a smoke break. I stayed behind since I thought it wouldn't take long and am asthmatic so I left the little lock thing in the door so they could just come back in whenever they got back. After about an hour I hear some people come in as I was washing my hands in the bathroom and when I open the door it was one of the room mates that neither the other people nor I knew really well had come in with a couple of guys and girls about my age or a little older, all already pretty wasted. At the time my anxiety was at an all time high and being in a room of drunk men holding drunk girls on their laps all while trying to get me to drink made me REALLY uncomfortable.I excused myself to the hallway and tried to call my boyfriend. No response. texted him. No response. I tried calling one of the other people in the room and they answered and told me to go back in and keep texting them. I went back in and waited for them to come back, which very soon after they showed up with a bunch of other people to kick them all out and eventually comforted me. Still no sign of boyfriend. After almost calming down completely he comes back, (ehh I'm gonna have to make this 1/2 sorry)
>>10411874(2/2 hopefully) He comes back, and basically pushes me off when I give him a hug, grabs more booze, and leaves without saying much. I get told don't worry about it much by others, since he was taking Molly (at the time I thought it was just weed). Later on I meet up with him again and try and hang out, but he refused to hold my hand and instead held someone elses right next to me. We were either heading to our room or someone elses where there were more people I had never met before. We were all talking around in a circle and he looks over at me and asks in front of everyone "you mind if I kiss all these people?" at that time I had I hard time telling people no and being asked in front of a group of people I didn't want to come off rude so I told him okay, though it hurt to see him kiss a whole bunch of strangers when he didn't even want to hold my hand. Sunday he was planning on wearing a specific cosplay that could be couple cosplay so I ended up making a cosplay to surprise him so we could wear them together. I got ready and was really excited to show him since my mom and I worked really hard on getting it done on time. He seemed pretty shocked (I later found out from friends that he was mad at me for doing this). We go down to the vendor's hall and kinda guilt trips me into buying about $100-150 worth of stuff and the con pretty much wraps up from there. I get home and tell him I had a great time and enjoyed seeing him. No response for about a week or 2 and when he does message me its to break up. In hindsight, I feel kinda stupid with some of the decisions I made, but I think I'm a lot more secure in who I am now and I'm in a loving relationship and haven't spoken to him much since. Sorry if some of this seems kinda weary my memory isn't the best!
>>10411878European? I have kicked the shit out of my friends for doing far less than a single one of those in the states. Drug addicted degenerates are all the same in my experience so it's par for the course
>>10411881No this was in the states as well, I would've definitely said shit now or kicked him out, but I was 16 and didn't have the balls to say anything to him back then.
>rooming with a bunch of other artists who are tabling>leave hotel booking to the one guy they referred to as the responsible one>arrive at the 'hotel'>it's a fucking hostel above a bar>mixed gender rooms>most of the 'secure' lockers are broken>some guy scratching his ass loudly stops everyone from sleeping>apparently it is possible to scratch your ass this loudlythankfully got through it unscathed even if it was uncomfortable as hell. lesson learned to check if the people I'm working with are goddamn cheapskates before leaving any decisions up to them.
>>10411878Jesus, that’s fucked. But at least you got with a better person.
One roommate complained about the rest of us on her facebook. On friends only, no filter, when we were friends with her. On night 1.We had been overly accommodating and had even fed her, did everything we could. We called her out on it, on the post, and got an in person apology but she kept pretending she didn't do anything wrong.
>>10409640god why do some people at cons think its okay to not shower through out the whole con thats nasty
>>10409251i'll try and make this as this easy to read as possible since last time i posted this i got off topic somewhatFriend of mine who hadn't contacted me in a while because of some kind of issue with gf decides he wants to try and be pals again. Attempt to give gf benefit of the doubt. This is clearly not the correct decision and can only really remember spending a little while with them as I was busy with other friends.The real horror was the gf literally chasing my sibling down the fucking street without warning and they fell and ripped a part of their costume because the nutjob after the gf and my friend decided they needed to talk alone for a while.
>>10410260Get a fucking gun dude
>>10410260They will dox you I'd they think your cute.
Two Florida whales brag about fucking in peoples rooms after they leave. They stayed in my room and I smelled some shit when I came back so I am pretty sure they fucked in my room while i was gone. They now run the Florida cgl discord and bragged about it not realizing I was in the discord.
Once when i was still relatively young I went to a cons masqurade party where a girl immediately introduced herself then decided to stick her hand up my skirt. I had known her for all of 3 seconds. I got felt up in the literal center of the dance floor and i was so scared that i completely froze up. A group of ouran host club cafe event cosplayers immediately stepped in and one of them (cosplaying as Soul at the time) asked me to dance just so i would be harrassed. The girl continually tried to tip toe back around to me during the night until she finally list intrest. Blackroom Soul cosplayer if your out there I owe you big time.
I joined a last minute group to go to a larger con last year. All but one of the people I had met previously, but the last guy was an extreme aspie. Highlights included:Freaking out about having lettuce on his taco from taco bell after he said "no veggies"Deliberately freaking out and fucking up his wig because "the people at the cosplay help desk will fix it"Waking the rest of the roommates up at 5 a.m. (we hadn't got back to our offsite hotel until about 3) by screaming bloody murder because he was having a night terror or some shit
I was molested by a "friend" of mine while sharing a bed at a con. She wanted to cuddle, I said no, she proceeded to cuddle me anyways and fondled my breasts under my shirt. I was 16 or 17 at the time and too afraid to make a fuss, I just pretended to be asleep.[Her boyfriend and another friend of ours was also in the room]
>>10412723This reminds me>be in high school>“friend” sexually assaults me>start going to cons after I graduate >have to see her ugly ass at at least 1 con a year>have to hide behind friends every time I see her or she’ll try to approach meI haven’t seen her at a con for probably a year and a half now so I’m hoping she’s done with cons permanently
>>10412775I relate to this.Said "friend" did some other fucked up and toxic things that made me stop being friends with her. She's really into cosplay and cons still and is why I stopped attending cons all together in order to avoid her ugly ass.On the flip side, my new boyfriend is into cosplay and when qurantine ends wants to do a couples cosplay with me :)
>>10412813Aww i hope you two have lots of fun!
>>10412813That’s really cute! I’m glad he’s helping you enjoy the hobby again
>>10412826>>10412975Thank you! I'm really excited to have a body guard if you will. I do genuinely wonder how many other people have quit the hobby because of abuse.
>>10412435You know what I always hear? “It’s okay, I don’t sweat.” What are you, a fucking mutant?
>>10413246fun fact, Japanese people have mutated to the point they legitimately don't have BO. deodorant is hard to find over there because of this
>>10413334This is the biggest fucking lie I've ever heard please tell me this is bait.The amount of sweaty Japanese dudes I had to smell on the train when I lived there in summer was astounding. And many other women wear excessive quantities of perfumes and scented products (basically every cheap skin or beauty product is often scented but it's always a heavy floral perfume scent and rarely nice to me). You can find deodorant, and more people, especially dudes should be wearing it desu.
>>10413334definitely not. some asians don't sweat that much but they fucking stink like hell. there are even articles about how women would rather date uggos that smell good than hot stinky guys.
Its not uwu magical nipponese sweat genes its a genetic difference in East asians and native Americans vs everyone elsehttps://www.sciencenews.org/blog/gory-details/what-your-earwax-says-about-your-ancestryThe same earwax type gene controls for the armpit odor causing bacteria. Yes even if you have dry ear wax and no sweat bacteria you'll still smell if you're unwashed or super sweaty, but you won't have that particular stank. And that's why armpit deodorant is not a popular product but those skin refreshing sheets are everywhere because the summers are misery.Also one year I roomed with a girl who was a friend of my sisters so I said ok and after she used the shower there was some kind of grayish residue (not a homestuck) I just one can't imagine someone's skin being that dirty and two, why wouldn't they rinse the shower for the next person
>>10413376>some kind of grayish residuethats dead skin, my dude. I scratched off a ton in the shower after taking off an ace bandage i was stuck wearing for like a week.

>>10414554Yo wtf I would have told her to go fuck herself if she demanded I pay for her meals what the hell is wrong with people?
>>10409251>2019>Go with couple and best friend since high school>Work with couple and we're starting to hate each other>For me it's that they fight all the goddamn time and make everything awkward, they think everyone's jealous of their relationship>The boyfriend is a wastrel when it comes to money, smokes way too much weed, and gets mad I don't bring all of mine when I hang out with them even though I don't smoke as much as him and I'm trying to not spend $40 just to have him smoke it all in one day>We get to hotel and unload, I go to nearby store with bestie and pick up 2x6-packs of beer and food>Go to con and fuck around, when I go back to room to drink more, most of my beer is missing>Don't think too much of it because there's three guys altogether>Next day I take a shower and bring all my stuff in the bathroom>Boyfriend asks me why I'm bringing my wallet with me to the bathroom>Ask him why he cares and he scoffs>Go back and buy 2x6-packs again because I had at best 4 beers yesterday>Fucking around at the dealers' room and there are no interesting anels going on, so I decide it's time for a drinkypoo>Go back to room and girfriend is sobbing, they were in a packed area and boyfriend ended up pushing her out of the way of other people or some bullshit>I really just wanted to chill out and drink, but ask her if she wants to talk about it>Tells me to get the fuck out>Grab two beers and end up drinking on the couches in the hallway of my floor, having to hide it when anyone comes by>See boyfriend walking back to room, signal to him that it probably isn't the best time go go back in there>"Oh, she's just being a cunt">Uh, okay>Finish beers and walk back onto the floor>At night we meet up to smoke a bit before rave>He wants me to pack first>Pack everything I have and he torches it all in one hit>Asks me if I have any more and I say no, then he goes into his usual bullshit about how he's always the one smoking everyone out and we cont.
>>10414600>We never treat him, and he's always the one who has to sacrifice for us and blah blah blah>Okay whatever dude>Chill out at rave and hook up with someone, couple was trying to hook me up with one of their friends, but she looked uncomfortable with the idea and all we had were short awkward conversations>Come back to the room later and the beers are gone, again>Boyfriend got anime figurines despite blowing his money on KHIII and a bunch of other bullshit right before con>Day 3 meet back up with my con hookup and we wander around con>Couple sees me with her and not their friend and they're confused as fuck>Couples' friend sees me with her and looks crushed>Feel kinda bad about it>After ending ceremony we pack up and leave>We meet back at couples' place and they're making out right next to me, but I'm texting my hookup and not really paying attention to them, and they're pissed about it>Later on couple and I mutually agree not to hang out again>Find out from retrospect boyfriend was selling my beer to underages so he could afford the figurines
Not really a dramatic horror story but it was the worst con roommate story I've experienced>it's a 2 person room shared with 4 different people>share with friends and former classmates because it's cheaper.>we only have 2 roomkeys so we have to make an agreement when to go to sleep and who gets to carry the keys to prevent situations where one has to bang on the door in the middle of the night or have nowhere to sleep that night.>one person, M, has different plans>M kind of does their own thing, hangs out with their own friends and would rather rave all night long>leading to the situation we tried to prevent in the first place>the second night, M decided to stay in the room of one of his new friends to not wake us up in the middle of the night>we still had to pack M's stuff during checkout because M overslept and left their stuff in our room>M was also late paying for the hotel costs and only wanted to pay 1/4 because they only slept there for one night and had to sleep on a sleeping matCould have been worse. After that I've decided to not sneak extra guests in a room to cut costs. I would rather pay the full price than deal with all that stuff again.Also to make clear agreements before the con and pick roommates more carefully. M was not a bad person but having a party animal as roommate while the rest wants to sleep is not a good idea.
>>10412723why do women act like this

>>10416891>Drunk on xanax
>>10417237naryt but benzos greatly increase the effects of alcohol
Why are you people so okay with others doing drugs or doing them yourselves? Wtf man.
>>10410133Fucking this. I'm 32 and enjoy my hobbies alot more now that I have a stable job with decent pay and a fitter body. 30 yr old wall my ass, I'm at my best
>>10410133This, I'm 26 working 2 jobs so I have a lot more money for cons and stuff compared to when I was 20 and had to room with 4 fucking people just to attend. I'm putting a little bit of money away a month for next summers con season. I'm never rooming with people again unless their family lol
>>10410133>>10417431I have no issue with people of any age attending cons but you have to stop acting like you can't have a good job before 30. I'm 22 without a degree and even I make good money to blow on cons with my job because I live frugally otherwise.
>>10417450Not saying it's not possible but most 20 somethings are still juggling college and part time jobs and haven't gained those life skills yet. My comment was more aimed at those that think your social youth stops at 30.
I almost want to share a room just for the experience
>>10409596how is it autistic to expect people to take a little personal responsibility

1/2>Going to con on my own, got a ticket last minute so no single rooms left>suddenly someone I vaguely know, Amy, messages me> "I have a 3 person room and one of the beds is free"> A whole bed to myself! How can I say no?> I've never met Amy but at least they're a girl and I knew we had some common interests> Get to con. Amy seems normal. The other roommate is her best friend Zoe; she's sweet, has some issues with an ex at the con so is a bit anxious> Me and Zoe are getting on well and Amy isn't getting attention. Amy suddenly announces that she has BPD and thinks she's hallucinating us> Starts crying whenever we're about to leave room for the convention> Eventually abandon her and have a nice time for the few hours of the day that are left> I've started photography as a hobby and bring my camera with me. Zoe asks me to take some photos of her cosplay, we get some done even though the lighting sucks a bit>Come back to the room for dinner and to get changed for the party>Amy seems happier now we're back> She gets wasted on drugs and covers herself in glowpaint, asks for photos. I take some but they don't really come out well so I just delete them when I get home> Having a good time when Amy suddenly starts freaking out again, screaming at us about how awful we are and how she hopes we die on our way to the hotel> Can't even remember what it was that set her off but I remember feeling unsafe around her> Ask front desk to find us another room but they're completely sold out, as are other hotels nearby> Decide to just give in, go to our room and try to sleep in turns>Amy shows up the next day nice as pie and pretends nothing happened> At the end of the con we part ways amicably but I resolve to keep her at arm's length> She then spends six months asking about the deleted photos of her, asking me if I'm not sending them to her because I'm using them as wank material, sending bizarre messages to my friends about what a predator I am
>>104177882/2Five years later> Zoe and I meet up at a different convention> suddenly Amy appears> She has a girlfriend with her this time>Amy's gf is a sweetie just like Zoe > We agree to talk and Amy apologises and says she's changed> Feel uneasy but agree to see how it goes> Should have listened to my gut> Make friends with GF, start hearing about how Amy is treating her>Sounds like abuse>Tell gf to gtfo, after about 6 months gf calls me in the middle of the day>She's moved across the country to live with Amy and suddenly feels unsafe>Emotional abuse, threats, physical abuse> Deja vu, I've just been to this place before> Give GF a place to stay because she doesn't know anyone else> Amy calls GF's dad and says we've kidnapped GF, starts sending messages to all our friends to have them cut me out of their lives because I corrupted her girlfriend and ex best friend. Claims she's called the police too> We call the local police and advise them as the constant phone calls are becoming a nuisance, they send round a cop who takes our details and warns Amy to tell her to stop itFive minutes after our call AMY'S DAD is on the phone to us telling us it's illegal to impersonate a police officer and that he's reporting us?? I tell him to fuck off and he tells me that swearing is also illegal. Not sure why he's involved in his adult child's life in this way, block his number but am infuriated for being spoken to like a child>tries to sue us for the crappy contents of a suitcase she dropped off at our house that she claimed was GF's, we should have burned it but can't be bothered dealing with her. Contents was some common magic cards and a teddy bear >Convention won't ban her because she's harrassing but not dangerous, meanwhile she follows me, Zoe, and GF around every con making comments about us> Hope she finally ODs one of these days
>>10417787Oh I've gone through college but stopped when I ran out of money and went to work full time. The only thing I regret is not being able to take the classes I actually wanted to take.
>>10410133I wish I could say this but rooms at the bigger cons have gone insane, I could afford my own room at AX or Fanime a decade ago but now I can't justify it despite a substantially higher income.
Holy shit some of these stories are completely fucking insane. I thought I had it bad that I barely have people to go to cons with, but this is something else.
>>10409287>Lolita Found your problem anon. Learn from your mistakes.
Time and time again, rooming or sharing houses, why is it guys are only minor to medium problems while the biggest fucking nuclear problems are always girls?
>go to a con with some friends>due to life unsure asked for floor space>we discuss payment of the room, I ask how to pay back host since my paypal got fucked by some etsy dispute>tells me cash is fine>con approaches people talking about bringing drinks/snacks for the room>throw out that I have extra booze and snacks and could just bring them if I could use that as payment for the room>agreed that my bottles of booze and snacks would make for my floor space>con goes on everyone having fun mostly no issues>roommate #1 starts complaining that we are being an issue by drinking past 2am(fair but okay dude it was friday night)>roommate #2, didn't bring any cosplay even though we all talked about cosplaying>wants to ghost badge 24/7>This is the ass trying to start shit with other gulls and constantly complaining about literally fucking everything. I mean everything, the dominos place I ordered from put too much sauce on the pizza, vendor hall was over priced for his tastes, music was loud in the room, complains about guests and shit 24/7, never does anything more than mope around and go to the vendor hall for an hour then walk around and go back to the room to do shit on his phone.>complains we are annoying because every 4 or so hours we come back to rest our feet share a drink or two recharge our phones and shoot the shit>this pisses off anon #2 so mucking much>stirs up shit on discord and the cgl specifically to fuck with the time there because he isn't having fun>flake off and leave him be with his stupid shit>have fun time>last day of the con anon #2 is like UHH ANON HASN'T PAID ANON DIDN'T FUCKING PAY FOR THE ROOM FEE>anon #2 says he 'ran the room'>no one knows what he is talking about >apparently we were all 'using him' the entire time for our own gains and that I didn't pay even though he never ran the room, demanded money from me>goes and shit talks me for years about shit I still am finding out about
>>10409370Maybe she just wanted a excuse for sex?
>>10418909This sounds like it, or they have some form of handicap
>>10418901>Host not getting money upfront in case something happens or someone flakes out or they blow it all in vendor roomRetard. Almost as retarded as rooming for a con
>>10417450This message was mostly for the zoomers that shitpost about 30 being to old for cons while simultaneously complaining about rooms and the cost of cons.
>>10419253did you misread the post?
>>10419315Yes I did. I thought for a second he was refusing to pay>>10419287Do people actually say 30 is too old for a con? Cons should be 18+ IMO. Cons trying to be inclusive has destroyed cons as a whole
>>10419330>Yes I did. I thought for a second he was refusing to payBefore the con I said if they wanted payment in cash since my paypal got fucked in a purchase that never shipped. Basically said I could pay in cash if they wanted, but during some shared group chat messages they were talking about picking up booze. Since I was driving to the con and had booze/snacks available, said If I gave them about the equivalent of the room for the floor space I wanted. After some quick discussion my offer to bring about 4 bottles of booze+snacks and agree to order pizza; all was agreed. I lived up to all of it and didn't think much of it till I was heading to my car with some others, the room owner(actual one) was staying another night to sleep off shit.I don't like to room with others, but the con was a last second thing since I didn't realize I'd have time off and only about 2ish weeks before hand I figured I could actually do it.Dunno what that anons problem was but apparently cons after I heard that dude became a massive asshole who couldn't tell the truth if it was said at him with proof. Maybe it was because I didn't pay the full room cost since I was only asking for floor space?
>>10419330There are definitely people who think it is too old. However, I usually find that most attendees that does panel are usually randos past 25s who just want to have a good time and does a good job at itIt just entirely depends what sort of cons you are going to and how much there is to do
>>10419330The people who never worked a fucking day in their life think 30 is too old, which is about 70% I'd say of CGL. I've been cosplaying since I was 26, so about 10 years now and been working since I was 17 or so. Why is this important? because maintaining, and having a job puts a fuck load into perspective on life.From my expirence16-25, really care about cosplay as they have a ton of free time and can focus a lot on it. People just wearing those aliexpress, etsy, or ebay shits are cringe because "lol how do you not have time to do cosplay it's my focus"21-26, depending when you got a job and if you work don't mind as much often just want a drink+laugh and a silly time, most 'annoying drunks' stories found here though25/26+ usually chill couples or people who generally take cosplay light heartedly or at least know how to have fun. I don't think I've met anyone past 26(unless those thots banking off mens lust or weird NEETs).Dunno why but I usually think if you know the value of money, you also know the value of time. Most of the insufferable people I've met at cons live with their parents either working below part time or not at all paying no bills/rent, then are completely detached from most of the people there. I know this comes off preachy but so fucking tired of hearing how to live my life when all I want to do is spend 3-4 days dressed as an idiot and chill with people.
>>10420428I feel this. Me and the boyz still hit up cons, 28 to 31. We all have real jobs and we do lighter cosplay stuff. Zabuza, Constantine, simple stuff. It's a fun getaway, we drink yeah but not blackout level. Too old for that and it's no fun to be a sloppy drunk, or take care of one. Plus, with financial responsibility comes a total lack of drama. It is wonderful.
Finally hit the right groove for cons right before it all shut down. But ideal situation for me (30 F cosplayer make enough to room solo but kind of frugal and lonely) 4ppl max to a room, everyone gets a keycard. Usually all cosplay friends so we are getting up early and going to sleep early. Everyone has real jobs and pay well in advance. We all gtfo on time and tip housekeeping. Take turns ordering delivery for people who want to eat. It was comfy and now I miss my friends
>>10419330>Do people actually say 30 is too old for a con?They do but the fail to realize that the people running the established cons are all over 35.
>>10409292+1I know a guy that met a girl while at the friday cosplay at anime north and had a similar situation. They hit it off well when I met up with them after the cosplay event as I was at a panel while they were at the friday cosplay. So ta the dance later that night she says she's looking for a room as she's like 1.5hrs away by transit and sying she can't stay long. My buddy offers her to room with us to help split the costs down more. Ugh...1. Bitch hogs washroom2. I almost wanted to grab her phone and throw it at the wall as she didn't turn off the volume at night and you keep getting facebook/twitter notification alerts and a bunch of text message...like WTF BITCH!?!? People are sleeping yo.3. Get shorted on payment for Friday night and getting vibes she might bail without paying but my buddy is deaf to my feels on the situation as he's into the girl and I also didn't want to cockblock as well. She says she'll pay up on Sat. afternoon but didn''t but buddy had a one nightstand romp with her which is good for him but I'm still fucked the half payment on the hotel room instead of split 3 way.Was supposed to go to anime north this year but the con obviously got canceled due to corona and that whole thing has kinda caused a rift in our friendship.
>>10418909>>10418914>>10409370Should have shagged her in the stairwell then tell her to check with the front desk for where her room is.
>>10417450>I live frugally otherwise.Ok we get it...you're a cheap bastard. Probably don't tip for room service.
>>10417800You can still take those classes. I was in your shoes before. Quit and worked full time and just making money to make ends meet and a little left (not much ) to tuck away for entertainment or save it for a con. I missed taking classes in college and would often have dreams of being in class only to wake up to the alarm clock blaring for me to get up to go to work.I decided to save up more so I could start taking some classes part time. Spring was coming up and the temps were warming up and I used to camp a lot when I was scouts. I lived near a revine. Sold most of my stuff and went back home around Easter to my parents place to pick up some of my old backpacking gear. Bought a cheap mossy oak tarp from Princess Auto and some camo netting from a surplus shop and just setup a low profile camp hidden in the woods. The tarp and the netting broke up the barren scenary at the time as the trees and foliage were just starting to come back. Thankfully never had a bump in the night or run ins with bush parties tho I've heard and seen some people having a few drinks before in the woods but no one ever saw me thankfully.Stayed that way for months till October going home to my parents a couple times to change seasonal sleeping bags and dodge questions of what I was doing with my gear other then saying going for a few camping trips. Saved enough to take some courses in the fall-winter time as I went back to renting again over the winter.I know this is not for everyone. I was able to get some help to keep some of the costs down by knowing some people which I was able to get some discounts on some stuff. If I was to make a recommendation for anyone wanting to save a chunk of cash during the warmer/hot months is to do that when the foliage has already come into full like in late spring instead of early spring like I did and needing a heavier sleeping bag. I highly recommend cheap surplus camo netting and cheap camo tarp. It breaks up your outline well.
Not going to go about age arguement, but the people who work vs those who don't work annoys me more. People who do the 9-5 grind in some way treat cons completely distant of those who don't. >poorfag in hs so had to go into a trade, working full time by 19>most friends did college or chilled at home>bout 24-25 at the time most of them are graduating college or just have>waiting for people to shower and get dressed>crack open a beer because going to be a while>ANON ARE YOU DRINKING IT'S NOT EVEN NOON YET (1130)Explain not doing anything but waiting for people to get dressed 2-3 beers over the course of an hour while i wait won't do shit, besides off work today>that's not the point anon you're going to be drunk at the conu wot m8>goes on some rant about drinking that no one fucking cares about>apparently someone who is about 170 having 2-3 beers and drinking is "drunk" even though by the BAC calculator I am barely holding a buzz if that>literally will not shut up about alcohol and shitGo on a small blerb about how I've not had a weekday off in about 2 months where I could just fucking kick it back and relax. 2-3 beers means absolutely nothing over the course of the hour I am waiting, been working without a proper vacation for a while and going to at least enjoy my weekend a little>insert long winded rant here from anon about how 3 beers is going to be drunk in public, breaking the law, and is a bother to everyone>tell them that the con is not public AWA even has a bar on the event floor for this and the hotel does too>just stop caring at this point>everyone gets ready we walk around for ~3 hours cosplaying doing our group shoot etc>late afternoon we decided to do lunch or early supper depending how you look at it it's going on 4pm>order a beer since going to be a while, for fuck all reason we decided to go to the closest place to the con(why do people do this shit? you aren't saving time by going to the place literally everyone else is at)1/2

Needing to take a break from the stress of work and life is something I plan to do.>Anon fucking loses it starts going off about all those people at the con have full time jobs making their cosplay and don't need alcoholics ruining it especially for lolitas(lol?)>Proceeds to go off on delusional shit about how people in college actually have it harder than people working/living on their own because tests and pressure>at this point fucking over it get my meal and go do my own thing>go have a blast with people at the con solo, hit the bar later that night for actual drinks before going back to the room for the room party>mood completely weird wondering what is up>apparently no drinks allowed anon would not shut up the entire time about this shit>anon apparently wants no room party and threatens to tell hotel staff if we hold a party because "it's not allowed" and "there are panels in the morning they need to get to" even though the room party was discussed well in advanced>fuck it I am out a buddy of mine comes along have a blast at the con and bars around the con, think nothing of the karen>rinse and repeat the full con>after the con anon goes on a complete shitshow on facebook about how people are so inconsiderate at cons and shit about drinking at them>never room with them againHuge factors at least for me come from those who work, and look at cons as a kick back and relax deal. Not justifying or defending anyone getting drunk like a frat house then being annoying ass the whole time at the con, but there are people who genuinely don't get a lot of time off and want to relax
And just to be perfectly clear, I have no problems with people who choose not to drink or really invest their time into cons, cosplay, and the time spent at them. That's completely fine as it's your hobby and life style, but understand that there are about 10-20 thousand other people all with different walks of life. For me conventions are the best kind of mini vacation I can look forward through the year, along with a bunch of other people I know who after the weekly 9-5 want a weekend to go look completely silly and break from the normal society, if those people want to grab a beer to help forget about the bullshit the week prior fine. If someone is being a drunken retard harrassing people like in a college frat house where someone just opened the keg, then go tell them to fuck the shit off.
People who drink at cons deserve all the shit they get, if I was your roommate I'd kick your ass to the curb.Go stay home you boozehead, there are people who actually enjoy life

>>10423781Come to UK cons, we have a nicer drinking culture than the US where outside of shit pubs and football drinking isn't some hardline go-big-or-go-home thing. Most places will do a good mocktail menu for nondrinkers too, and teetotallers don't tend to get so snotty either.

>>10424339The small bunch of step drinking floor shitters aren't the thousands of chill people. It's only the kids who don't know their limits who get obnoxiously drunk.(I was one of them 15 years ago!) We definitely don't have the po-faced teetotal culture they have in the states.
>>10424265Oi, you got a permit for that lime slicin knoife?
The first time i went to Anime Expo i was super poor so i took one of those "floor spot" roomshares. Got there and it was this really nerdy, arrogant asian dude (shoutout to my asian bros but this dude was obviously a ricecel), his annoying friend, a super fat bitch, and a dude who was like 37 who kept acting like he was a bigshot coke dealer. The fat chick kept talking about her Facebook Roleplaying groupchat and all the dudes acted super interested in it because they were thirsty (not trying to be an ass but this chick was a solid 3/10 with the saggiest tits ive ever seen, and she kept her unwashed cringey kigurumi unzipped halfway so they were in full view). First morning i was woken up at 4AM by all of them because the asian dude wanted as many autograph meet n' greet tickets as he could get. Rude but whatever i was up for an adventure i guess; turned out to hardly be an adventure and i stood in line with these retards for 2 hours. (1/2)
>>10425538(2/2)Went back, got dressed and didnt see them all day on purpose despite them texting me. Went back that night to get ready for an afterparty and got dressed during an awkward moment when the Asian dude was hitting on the fat bitch to the point he put his hand on her leg lol, she was not interested at all. 2awkward4me so i booked it to the party. Hit it off with a qt azn chick and i went back to her room after the party was over, was going to stay with her the rest of the time (never do casual stuff like that but i was very mentally unwell at the time due to NEETdom). Texted the roomies that i was going to be gone for the night and shit, then the asian dude texted back that they found the weed in my bag (wtf went through my bag?) and said i wasnt welcome back anyways, they put my shit in the hall. So i had to try to venture back to the other hotel while shitfaced and then BACK to the girl's hotel. The rest of the time was great but they would each text me at least 10 times every day afterwards saying that they were sorry they overreacted and to come back lol.
>start dating this guy>he asks me to stay in his room for con coming up>i'm up for it>3 other people in the room>one of them is a brain dead weeb girl>sounds like a hick>eats choco cornets like in lucky star all con>can't pronounce the name of who she's cosplaying>smells like fucking disgusting infected crotch>is on period>doesn't know how to buy her own pads>has our male friend buy them for her>gets annoyed cause i don't have pads, just tampons, and i won't buy them for her>the room stinks all night and she cranks the aircon down to 55Fshe tried to be friends with me after the con along with her roommate but i ghosted because they're both cringe.
How do you organise yourself in group ? I mean, There is a lot of story of people rooming and attending con in group of total strangers, while I always have been lonewolfing. Rooming has never been a issue, I only attend to close con, and there is 4 in my city. But getting into a group of similar themed cosplay, or like minded people... how do you do that, and still don't know those people ? With facebook cosplay group ?
>>10426247Literally wtf? Was that like her first period or something? Anyway sounds like you dodged a huge bullet by ignoring her and her roommate

Stopped rooming with some friends because of 1 person who was an asshole that barged in hours late, insulted my cosplay and made someone cry. I was awake at 3am and refused to sleep until everyone sorted their shit out and laid down. >next yearStay with other group of friends. This was a mistake. Too many people, not enough space. Friend's ex is also there and calls me wrong name despite constantly correcting him. Gets in personal bubble, asks pitifully why I don't like him. I was showing a commission I paid for and he asked to see it, I straight up ignored him lmao>This yearWas gonna room with old friends minus asshole. Covid.

Manages to make it to the toilet in time.>Literally, THE NEXT DAY, Steve has the ball to say this.>"Man, let me tell you something. I KNOW how to control my alcohol unlike these new dudes at this con"
One time at AX over a decade ago my brother and I did a roomshare with a man I will call S. We agreed to price and everything before the event 6 people in the room, two on each bed two on the floor. When we show up on on day zero S is no where to be found and not replying to text or emails. Three hours later after our agreed meeting time he texts hes on his way.We find out he renting three rooms, and when the other people showed up early he collected their money ( the money for the rooms) and went and got Korean BBQ. Which is why he was late for our arranged meeting time. ( During the 3 hours I tried and failed to find a new room or hotel). S then proceeds to rearrange the rooms ( we were told who we were rooming with pre con) so all the females were in his room. Three of the ladies leave the next day because of how creepy he is.My new roommates are fine but now there are 8 people in our room and one of them we will call A is creeping the others out because he doesn't talk or respond to any verbal queues he just stares. He is clearly on the spectrum. I have three brothers with mental disabilities, so I have no issues with A but he gets moved to our room which puts us at 9 people I bring up that I agreed to six people to a room and now there are 9 I advised S needs to return money to the people in our room he says he will one he figures out what he owes everyone he never does. the first night in the hotel S keep coming into the room Evey hour or so in the middle of the night I'm a light sleeper and am on the floor by the door I wake up and ask him what he wants he says he wants to make sure the room is safe since it's his name on it. He does this 4 more times. I tell the people in the room in the morning and we asked for the room key as we think is creepy and don't want people having access to our stuff he agrees and gives us his key to our room.We go to day one I decide to head back to the room before lunch to drop off some of the merch 1/2
2/2And S is in our room again with his friends he got another copy from the hotel. I was pissed.I get them out checked my stuff warned the other roommates. I head out I came back around 8/9 aclock at night on day with my brother ready to crash for the day and S has his room door open he is having a room party and he had a female that was staying in our room completely trashed in his room, she was slurring her speech couldn't stand. I go and drop my stuff in my room and go back to S room and walk in and just stand there with my arm folded staring at him and his three friends. They asked if I wanted a drink. I said no I said I was just waiting for *** so I could lock my rooms door for the night. They tried to say she be fine in his room. And I didn't need to lock the door I didn't reply I justed stared I'm 6'4 279lbs so they weren't going to be able to make me leave. Then S has the balls to say she needs something in her mouth, and I flat out asked him want does she need in her mouth and he goes quiet and looks down and he suggests she goes back to our room at which point me and my brother had to let her lean on our shoulder to walk to rooms two doors down. Guy gave me the cold shoulder the whole con and my brother had to be between me and him cause I wanted to beat him to a pulp

It's kinda creepy(this girl is 23 or was 24?)>reply back that up until a few minutes ago nothing was remotely creepy but now being made akward>her whole mood changes the rest of the night and sunday when packup, clearly more cold towards me>ask if everything is okay to her bf on the side and he tells me not to worry about it but I freaked his gf out because she thought we were all the same age there about>slowly said bf stops talking to me keep talking with other roommates>turns out she is really weirded out by sharing a room with someone over 30Never understood it, I stay active and don't drink too much while trying to eat healthy, I've seen balding overweight smoking 25 year olds looking mid 30's. just know one day you'll hit thirty and probably still have fond memories of cosplay, if not cosplay yourself just realize how dumb you look bitching about others.
>>10428097People who are into kink and prostitution tend to be unattractive dumpy looking folks. Well adjusted people don't do that shit.
>>10437424The only person I know how is promiscious is a really fat girl who never brushed her teeth. Her teeth had green buildup. Her finger nails always had black buildup on them and she only wore flip flops ever. She has a series of mental illnesses and was sexually assaulted as a child.I'm all about sex positivity but people who are sex addicted or promiscious especially at a young age usually have some serious damage. I don't want to say to avoid whores, but extremely promiscious people have a bad rap for a reason.
I went to a /cgl/ room pt before. I remember people saying some guy was touching up drunk girls and some seagull dumped her way old sugar daddy bf to hook up with a guy from the /cgl/ ax meet up discord.

I guess it's not really a horror story more like, something that would make my friendship weird if I brought it up? I love my best friend like a brother I never had. I really do. But at Katsucon this year after the Saturday rave he brought a cosplayer he met back to our shared air bnb and I'm certain the two of them fucked on the couch in the living room while I was passed out drunk on the air mattress in the adjacent bedroom because I woke up before him and found a condom wrapper on the floor and just quietly put it in the trashcan and never brought it up. Also on the drive home he told me that said cosplayer was married. He also told me that him and the cosplayer talked until 5am so he thinks I don't know that they boned.
>>10441421>no fun allowed after 29
>>10441421Yes god forbid people not pull out the knitting needles and sit quietly in rocking chairs after 25.

She probably thought I was into that stuff (which yeah I liked yaoi as a teenager, but I didn't share porn with other people, especially strangers), because I used to only crossplay back then
>>10443121Seconded. One of the most evil, fucked up, abusive people I ever knew had bpd. She would use her diagnosis as an excuse to continue abusing people. She would never apologize for anything. And if you finally gathered the courage to stand up to her, she would immediately cut off all contact and go to every mutual friend and spread nasty rumors about you. After experiencing her abuse for years, I will never interact with someone who has bpd again. It’s not worth itAnd if someone who has bpd is reading this, go seek professional help I am begging you
>>10443433Damn that word for word describes someone I used to know. I thought she was just a bitch.
>>10412435It's um okay for me tbhh because I technically dont sweat so I don't smell bad. I can go a few days without showering and I would smell fine. My bf can vouch for me. Also technically speaking its actually bad for your body to shower or take a bath every single day. You have to do it within spaces like Monday shower Tuesday dont Wednesday shower etc. Also if you dont go out at all that day you automatically are excused from showering that day
>>10443433>had BPD>nevery acted anything like thatAccording to my therapist most BPD stems from living in abusive situations, its something abusers pass down, so you have to fight and unlearn it. After escaping my abusive situation, i no longer show any signs of BPD.When I was in an abusive situation and did show signs of BPD those signs were shown by me getting too attached to people I just met and bending over backwards for their happiness. So in that case, that opened me up to abuse from people I just met too.There are different kinds of behavior when it comes to BPD and im glad to have moved passed it, but to stereotype BPD as only the most negative type of behavior makes me uncomfortable.I never told people I dated that I had BPD when I did have it due to the stigma, and no one could tell either. To them I was just a "insanely dedicated girlfriend who never got upset with them no matter what"
>>10445321A tldr is my BPD just opened me up for abuse.My mother told me I'd never find love because of it, and if I expressed disdain at her shitty parenting (beating me for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and getting beat, getting locked in my room and let out only when she felt like it) she would go "youre just crazy, im an ideal parent, you just have BPD" She preferred that the people I dated were the same amount of crazy as her, and she told my exes I have BPD to try to help them put me in my place. My former boyfriend stole $200 from me, and when I yelled at him he said "youre just being crazy, this is the BPD thing your mom told me about, isnt it" Turns out getting away from abusers will make me look a lot more sane and like im not getting pissed for no reason. Either way, fuck people that use mental illnesses as a cover up for their shit behavior, and fuck people that stereotype people with mental illnesses assuming they are all on the same level of terrible.
>>10445112>I technically dont sweatHow the fuck does your body keep you cool? Do you pant like a Labrador or something?>automatically are excused from showering that dayNot if you sweat and it's hot. Heat matters and a lot of bodies generate a lot of heat
>>10445112>technically I dont sweat so I dont smell badDo your eyes change color too? Take a shower.
>>10445112>I technically dont sweat
>>10445112Are you going to say your body doesn't shed any skin cells or oils on those days, too? We've found the cure to senescence right here!
>>10445112You'd probably be dead at a con if you don't sweat given large bodies of people generate a lot of heat and you'd die of heat stroke.Also sweat isn't the be all and end all of smelling bad. Your skin cells die and attract bacteria. Just take a fucking shower.
>rooming with anyone>dude don't worry my gf is totally chill she doesn't care about some dudes who are there you won't even notice herAnyone else know this hell?
>>10445386Why is this hell?
>>10412495That was me. Can i feel you up?
>>10445112Your BF is probably being nice, please for the sake of everyone around you, take a damn shower. If you're that worried about your skin, just skip on days you aren't leaving the house/apartment
>>10443433>tfw one parent with BPD (don't worry the other one was also crazy and a usive in her own special way) and I've got it confirmed that I have genetic disposition for developing it>Aka I might wake up crazy one dayAmazing. I thought I got away from this shit when I moved but fuck me I guess, thanks RNG of the universe.
>>10446137Meh I wasnt a self pitying tard before I found about this genetics bullshit, and I'll be damned if I let myself become one afterwards.
>>10445112>my bf can vouch for me sweetie, your boyfriend is just as smelly as you are, only more desperate.
>>10445112Excusing the stank this anon has greasy hair much?
>>10446137I'm >>10445321>"According to my therapist most BPD stems from living in abusive situations, its something abusers pass down, so you have to fight and unlearn it"its not a genetic thing, but more of the crazy of others can often affect you negatively.
>>10445112Sweat isn't what makes you smell bad, the bacteria living in your skin folds is. And everyone in the entire world has those bacteria. Even if you don't sweat a lot, the bacteria give you BO. And inversely, someone can sweat a lot, and as long as they're showering and actually cleaning themselves, the skin bacteria stay at enough of a minimum that they don't smell. And you may have gotten the confusion that you don't need to bathe every day from the fact that your HAIR doesn't need to be washed every day. But your body definitely does. You can wrap up your hair and jump in the shower for 5 minutes with a bar of soap and be much better off for it.By the way, your boyfriend is either being nice or his sense of smell is shot from being around you too much. I guarantee you reek and people can probably identify the places you've recently been by the trail of odor you leave. People like you are the reason cons have to beg their attendees to shower every day and use deodorant. But this is probably gonna fall on deaf ears cause you quite literally think your shit don't stink. Just please stay away from me if we're ever at a con together lmao.
>>10446321Different anon and I hate to bring race up into this but some races and genetics actually do smell less than others. It's a genetic thing, same with the amount of ear wax produced. You're not wrong, but that anon could very well not smell for a while. I can go two days without a shower before smelling if I'm not on my period. The reason I know is because of my co-workers. About 10 of us sit in a closed off room with no windows sitting at computers and when someone smells, we ALL know it and not afraid to speak up to each other about it. The girls made an agreement with each other to speak up if one of us smells so that we can take care of it.
>>10417796>I tell him to fuck off and he tells me that swearing is also illegal
>>10447312less doesn't mean none. and that doesn't mean you're dirty or not. my bf is chinese and barely sweats or smells but he has really oily skin and leaves nasty film in the shower when he washes.
>>10447312You ain't wrong anon. That's why Indian people from India are probably one of the most strongest regarding body order. Like you can even tell if an Indian person stinks in a large crowd like a convention right away due to their unique aroma when it comes to their body odor.
>>10447485I think that’s more about diet, though. They eat a lot of spices like cumin and fennel that have strong smells when metabolized.
>Nakacon>Get done with room party and head to bed around 2am>find some random cosplayer drunk in the hallway>Doesn't have her room key>phone is dead>So drunk she cant remember what her fucking room is>tired as fuck, take her to room>Use shower, then let her shower, give her my queen bed and I sleep on the pull-out couch>Wake up>Shes embarrassed>Has no money on her, still didn't plug in her phone despite me telling her drunk self to do it>Annoyed, but take her out to breakfast so she can charge her phone>Talk about the con while eating greasy spoon food and drinking coffee>Finally get her phone charged, pay for our breakfast, drive her back to con>She gets sick, almost hurls in my truck but i had a trash bag handy>9.99 wasted>Drop her off with her friends, go back to my room, grab some stuff I need for a shoot>Have a good day at con>go to bed after saturday room party>hear a knock>its her drunk again>"I forgot where my room is again.">Close door on her and go to bed.
>>10447590She forgot her room number, but remembered yours? Sounds like she was trying to get some
>>10447614I dont smash randoms. Could have crotch fauna to rival a jungle.
>>10425015Prom experience: I have a way ebtter time getting flat out drunk in the netherlands than at UK cons, drunk english guys scare the shit out of me at this point.
>>10447738Fact, when you get wasted in the Netherlands nobody starts a fight and you always get to your room safely
>>10447312Ahh, yes. Thank you for proving something everyone’s always known but couldn’t validate. As indicated by this post, some races delude themselves into thinking their particular race doesn’t stink while others do. I hope you know we all talk about you. Every body, and I mean literally if you have a body, you stink. Take a shower.
>>10447349>less doesn't mean none.Yes. That was said. This post was regarding smell since that was the topic, it never said anything about not being dirty. You say yourself that your chinese boyfriend does not stink.
>>10443121Third this statement. It's fucked up because you simply cannot ever in your life form a normal relationship. But I as an individual don't have to deal with their lunacy.
>>10409370Oh fuck, not this anon but I actually know who this is and who posted this because [spoiler]she was staying at our room that weekend[/spoiler]. It was a nightmare on our end as well.>She was supposed to meet us on the first day during check-in so everyone could settle and go over our set rules>She wasn't there and didn't contact any of us>Find out through her social media that she was going back and forth about going>Eventually she still decides to go but does this late in the afternoon>Through all this still doesn't contact us>We think she flaked so we don't bother with it and go about our way>Night falls>Some of us volunteer at the convention so they have to get up early for shifts>Everyone asleep>In the dead of the night she blows up someones phone>Guy finally picks up, it's her and she's at the main desk wanting to get picked up because she doesn't know where our room is>He sighs and storms out to get her>When she gets back there's only space on the floor for her (me and others were also on the floor). She makes a deal about it and hasn't brought ANYTHING to sleep on or under>Ignore her but someone enables her by sharing the bed>Throughout the entire weekend she ends up being a burden and messing up the room and bathroom with her junk and cut wig hairs>She doesn't even bother to clean up and goes out to the convention grounds>Final day and she ended up sleeping in another room>Her stuff is still in our room and we need to check out>Was so done with her shit that we decided to leave all her shit there and just check out but again someone ended up enabling her and gathered all her belongings>He ended up having to babysit her stuff the entire day while she was floating around the con>He ends up being done with it and the moment he wants to leave she comes storming in to collect her shitThis is the light version of it because too many details but fuck thinking back still makes me seethe
In this thread I see mentally ill fat people with poor hygiene lying on the internet about other mentally ill fat people with poor hygiene.
>>10448568I appreciate hearing a part two from a different perspective
>>10409251>room with college roommate who was normal during our college years>come back at 3 am after partying >find room completely trashed and covered with empty food containers and drink bottles>no one else was in the room with her (she didn’t have other friends at the con and doesn’t have the social ability to make new friends or hook up with someone)>go to bathroom to take shower>lock door>roommate starts banging on the door >ANON, GET OUT. I NEED TO SHOWER. >she had been alone in the room since 5 pmNever roomed with her again.
>>10423456tipping is an american disease
>>10449527I don't tip room service either... But I do stuff like strip the beds and gathering all the trash.
Figured this would fit but I remember in a convention group on facebook there was a girl begging for room.>needs room for a 3 year old and a crib for the baby>can't pay but totally pay for snacks!!>Gets no takers blows up the group saying how everyone's ruining her fun.
>>10449631Who in their right goddamn mind would let a random baby and 3 year old in their convention room. Furthermore, what sort of parent would bring a baby and 3 year old and not get their own hotel room?? I guess the same sort of mom who is too broke to pay for a room but still wants to go play around at an anime convention (wonder what else her kids might need that she's skipping out on getting?) Fuck's sake.
>>10447544I have meet many who eat a American diet, barely Indian food if any. They still smell
>>10417788>>10417796Ok but did you and Zoe fuck
>>10449631This is how children end up molested
>>10441421This is a trash opinion. At this point, many congoers are pretty much lifers - & they've been going for 10+ years. Are they just supposed to not have fun anymore? I'm 29 & felt WAY too old at a Danganropa photoshoot. While dressed as Miu Iruma, nervouse as shit about getting involved, I talked to a photographer who was probably 17-18. Said I was nervous as shit because I was so much older. He looked at me, dead square in the eyes & said "You're no less valid than anyone else here." And MAAAN that helped alot.
>>10449631Jesus Christ definitely a girl and not an adult woman at heart. I hope she was able to reconsider her priorities afterwards.
>>10441432>>10441800>>10442481>This level of copingNo shit you don't have to stop enjoying things at [x] age but having a birthday at a con is really silly and tactless when over 30, and hanging out with people barely past 20 when you're 32 is weird as fuck, no wonder that girl felt suddenly freaked out
>>10450990If there’s a con you always go to and the con dates happen to fall on your birthday are you just not supposed to go?
Only had 2 simple ones>Friend is at con while his girlfriend stayed home.>She calls him constantly the first night>Second night she calls him at 3am when all of us are asleep.>He answers and instead of telling her to call back later- keeps talking to her for like 5 minutes>I had been waiting for anyone else to say something>Hang up the fucking phone we're trying to sleep finally comes out of my mouth.>He gets up and walks outside to talk to her and stays out till like 7am.He didn't think it was a big deal, rest of my friends were all waiting to see who snapped first. My husband said he could feel the anger radiating off of me (had been woken up by same friend at husbands house before cause he was playing wow battlegrounds at 4am and woke me up)Other time>First time entering cosplay masquarade, as Ryoko with a handmade Ryo-okkie plush.>Set it near laptop because I know it's safe there>Night before masqurade friends get drunk>Wake up next morning and go to turn on laptop-red puddle under it>Lift up laptop and it's dripping wet with energy drink, can left right next to it.>Start freaking out, husband freaks out since it's his gaming laptop and drinks weren't allowed near it anyway as a hotel rule>Drunk friend doesn't remember knocking over drink>Sober friend who is an idiot "Oh I tried to clean it up">Fucker there is a puddle under it you didn't try>Finally see Ryo-okkie plush's paws are stained bright red as well.>Legit start to lose it and scream into a pillow.>Other friends make idiot friend help go get breakfast>Drunk friend feels horrible and offers to pay for fixing it. Though I believe he didn't do it and it was the idiot since he had been sitting in the chair and had his stuff on the table as well.>Laptop is deadBoth aren't invited back.
>>10450990Imagine being this autistic about something posted a while ago that was just a celebration for someone.
>>10451367If he offered and you didn't take him up on it, you're an idiot. It doesn't matter who knocked it over. There were rules about drinks, someone didn't follow it, he should pay.
>>10451386he did pay, the hard drive was fried though. He later crashed at my house for a few weeks and skipped out on paying his last week of rent after drinking all of my alchohol and leaving spit bottles everywhere in the room he was staying in.I'm more pissed that he just stopped being my husbands friend out of no where than the rent money part. Like he just cut all ties and fucked off.
>>10409370Seen this story before, try harder
>>10410934You have, anons be posting other peoples stories
>>10410256>>10410260Bro wtf, what kind of onlookers would not jump in to defend a woman, we call people in the public potential bodyguards because of his they will jump to a females defence so easily. Anyway you should have told him about the cheating and gangbang straight up not just be careful. I’m not above drop kicking a woman if someone attacked one of my friends like that or even a stranger.
>>10452126Google the bystander effect anon, and prepare to lose what little faith in humanity you had left.
I’ve been fortunate enough to not have to deal with stuff like this. Worst thing that I remember happening in a room was a guy bought a hentai game and set it up on someone else’s laptop while they weren’t in the room
>>10452521w-what if that had been someone’s work computer?
>>10449872People who never grew out of their weeb stage. Know another who brought her baby to AB as an accessory for her Danganronpa cosplay. By the time we saw her baby was full on zoned out and her face was covered in marks and gunk. Spend a good 5 minutes cleaning her and even offered to change her diaper. Poor thing probably hadn't been changed in hours. Not really big on kids in general but damn no one especially a kid deserves that. Pretty sure that kid is gonna grow up with a hatred of anything weeb related.
>work has me in japan for a few months again (tokyo specifically)>come back to the us want to go to a con with some friends I haven't seen in a while want to do a con >room is 2 so kind of large >Bring a few things back as gifts, some doujins/sake/buttons/etc>meetup goes fine>Room #2 that is the womens room hears I am back from japan after breaking open some sake and hikbi>"they come over at first all cool just basic stuff, show a convention or two I went to down in osaka, didn't change out since short on time back to tokyo>anon.. you can't ride trains in cosplay">lol wut who said that>"it'd disrespectful to japanese">isthisthereallife.png>explain the people I met didn't care since I was in an unreserved car and made sure my cosplay didn't go past the arm rest>NOT THE POINT ANON IT'S DISRESPECTFUL!>ask who told them that>smacked back with a 'it's common knowledge' shit aka stupid kensama shit>ask last time they've been since no one really cares and people do it all the time>well I was in tokyo for a week and we never did that! I know because (vtuber/instagram/whatever the fuck here told me)>jokingly say 'yeah well sorry not big into the lolita/j-fashon stuff that america does all the time. To most people I met there it was mostly just for fun. Besides most people laughed it off as just silly."NOT THE BEST OPTION>Hiroshima ain't got shit on how it's like I called their mom a whore.>constant winded rants about how Japan works from some girls>try to explain that most people don't give a single fuck as long as you aren't showing up on shibuyameltdown levels of shit>get karen levels of how cosplaying in japan is some trophy thing>say didn't mean to offend them but it's just cosplayBAD IDEA>bitches go nuclear at that, explaining how Japan is even though I just got back from yet another time there to me. >never understand what this japan they are talking about is>at cons now only discuss it with men because women are landmines about it
>>10450990>look 5-7 years younger than you are>post never said anything about falsifying age>just a random meetup for a b day>NOOOO YOU CAN'T JUST INVALIDATE WHAT I THINKARINOBelieve it or not if you work out and stay active you can look mid 20's well into life, I mean shit look at Tom Cruise. Dude is like going on 60 and looks mid-early 30's. I'd see justification in callouts if there was something to support them lying about age, but it's a fault by a girl from a girl and issue spread by an individual.NGL women suck at telling mens age, that's not an incel/pol remark that's just how it fucking is. >and hanging out with people barely past 20 when you're 32 is weird as fuckThen twitch needs to basically shut down, also when is 24 "barely past 20", fucking lol
>>10452919Even just never drinking/smoking will do wonders for your body.
>>10452921Oh definitely, I'm just saying that most people don't gauge age right. We don't allow smoking everywhere and lead paint on toys, etc.If you're +30 just don't try and hit on the 18y/o in the room for drinks and lmao you're fine
>>10452913>women are landminesMoral of the story. I’m a woman and therefore probably a landmine too but I’ve found that I can’t talk to women about hardly anything without them getting offended.
>>10453015>t I’ve found that I can’t talk to women about hardly anything without them getting offended.me again, left out some shit but holy shit you are right>get asked if I made my cosplay, no bought it off aliexpress. I wish I had the free time for doing shit like that lol>O-oh you did? hmmmm. >get a 10 minute rant about how I need to make my own shit and buying a boboobobo outfit should be done by hand(?!?!?!?)literally who the hell cares? It's seriously a fucking cosplay to make people laugh, like holy shit>get "checked" if I am really big down there as I am up topI was so weirded out by this I didn't even know what to do. >walking around the vendor hall>some black chicks walk up near me>ass grabbedasked wtf but "haha nice butt"If there is anything about cons I've learned is that women perform and practice the most sexual harassment shit possible.
>>10419253>>10419315>>10419330This begs the question, since been there done that. When I host a room i never charge full rate, I usually ask for 20-25/night that you plan to use it for. I think 25/night is pretty reasonable if not feel free to correct me. If someone were to do tell me they bring all the booze then I think that is fine, who the hell wouldn't?
>>10452923>don't allow smoking everywhere and lead paint on toysOk, but China allows those things and Chinese people definitely age better on average than Europeans with all their regulations.
>>10453408Are you saying that for say two nights at a con you would charge someone $50 to stay with you? In my experience that would just be very generous I've always divided the full cost of the room including parking and taxes/fees evenly among each person staying. I still do this with the three friends I go to every con with and I did it when I hosted rooms for people off coscom or Facebook (which I never do anymore). Getting a decent amount of cash, especially a fair share, is just good insurance in case you get that one asshole who makes your life hell for whatever reason for the weekend (destroys the room with makeup, covers the place with their shit, comes back sloshed at 4am, etc.). It also causes unnecessary drama if person A finds out that person B is only paying $X because "they brought the booze" when person A paid $XX+ instead. I've never truly hosted a party room, but I've brought alcohol and had others provide their own if they want to drink.
>>10453413Chinese people age well because they purposely stay out of the sun as much as humanly possible. White people don't realize the sun is the main thing that ages you.
>>10453418TBF isn't China like the main contributor to air pollution I doubt they see much of the sun as is through all the smog.
>>10453414I usually do 3 nights, so I assume 75 bucks or you throw in for booze or what not. If you are doing a floor(non bed) then I think it's fair.If you want bed shit then yeah Xnumber of people/Y costs is actually the way to go. but floor space I never feel it's right to charge for shit like that.
>>10453426UVA penetrates through clouds, smog, and everything else that isn't solid. That's why sun protection is necessary even in winter.
